(Ipeelal to The Dally Canadian.)
Oreenwood. May 16. James Copctand,
of Camp McKinney, who haa been here
for some days, has completed a deal for
lhe I.e Rol. Three practical men of
Phoenix took It over under bond and
will begin Immediate work thereon. The
consideration ls $30,000 on a two years'
bond with a cash payment of $1100. The
bondholders are lo pay a bonus of $100
a month to Copeland during tlie life of
the bond.
The Lo Rol Is a line copper property
and has had considerable work done on
It. Many efforts have been made to buy
il on other terms but Copoland has always remained firm in his price and
conditions. The V. V. & C. railway
runs within about four miles of the

Unionist Party Pledged to
Fiscal Reform  ,
Austen Chamberlain Describes Refusal of Colonial Offer as Brutal
���Must "Raise Revenue.
London, May 17.���In the house of
commons on the Becond reading of the
finance bill, Rt. Hon. AuBten Chamberlain moved for an official tariff reform
amendment. He dealt with the general
question of taxation and satirized the
attiludc of the government towards the
colonial demand for preference. The
demand of the colonies, he thought,
had beeu refused almost brutally and
lhe opiiositlon were anxious, not to repel the first united advance for a closer
union with the colonies. No juggling
wllh the income lax would meet the
caae. He laid ts. to the charge of the
Hritish fiscal Bystcni, and lt acted as a
handicap to trade, commerce, wages and
employment, and suggested the Imposition of duties on imported manufactured goods.
Hon. Alfred Lyttleton also condemned the act of the government regarding
the colonial conference; while Rt Hon.
Jesse Colllne ridiculed the statement
mnde by Rt. Hon. Herbert Asquith that
the tiuestlun was finally settled by the
laat election.
Hon. Reginald McKenua and Rt. Hon.
Sydney lluxtun replied on behalf of the
government, the latter arguing that the
financial system of Oreat llrltaln ls now
sounder than It haa been for years. If
Britain adopted preference, retaliation
or protection It would lead her Into
hopeleBB chaos. Tho debate was adjourned.
ln tbe house of commons Sir E.

The Canadian associated press understands one of the principal difficulties standing In the way of the government In endeavoring to meet the wishes
of Laurler and tho other premiers in the
proposed "all llrltlsh route io Austria,
via Canada," is the Cunard endowment
of 190'! which extends another sixteen
years. The government Is naturally reluctant to endow a line of steamers to
compete with a line already Imperially
endowed to the extent of il 18.000
yearly; however, it Is Btrongly hoped
and believed that another conference
will find a way out of the difficulty.
The Chronicle'a nnval correspondent
snys lhe ndmiralty is perturbed at the
erroneous Impression prevailing in
Canada and Australia that, by merely
contributing n trained reserve of seamen they assist In solving the problem
of Imperial defence. If war broke out
tomorrow there aro 30,000 llrltlsh seamen for whom there nre no shlpB;
therefore the colonies should assist In
some other way.
Local   and  Outside   Architects   Making

C. P. R. Machinists Object to  Rule of
"Punching the Clock."
It is quite within the range of possibilities that the C. P. R. machinists will
take another "vacation" In the near future, though they are at work today.
At alt the C. P.'-JR. machine shops
there ls a large clock on which the men
are required to regiAer the time of going on and off duty and they are paid
The men have long objected to the
system. They wish to work by the day,
irrespective of minutes, or half-hours.
If a man failed to "punch the clock,"
he was not paid for the half-day. That
also waB considered a grievance, as an
excessive line.
The machinists' union took the matter up some time ago with Mr. Bury,
vice president. No agreement was
reached. The union then gave notice
that unless the rule of "punching the
clock" were abolished by May 15th
they would go���at least, "take a vacation."
The rule was not abolished, and accordingly on Wednesday, May 15th, as
reported in The Dally Canadian ot that
date, -the C. P. R. machinists from
Fort William to Vanoouver "took a vacation."
It was thought tbat afternoon, from
advices received, that the matter was
settled. Tbe men returned to work yesterday, and, It Is understood, conformed to the rule.
This morning also they returned to
work, but, ln the local shops at least,
they declined to "punch the clock."
Presumably the same course has been
followed elsewhere. Whether the usual
fine of half a day's pay will be Imposed
or not, and. If so, whether the men will
take another "vacation" or not, remains
to be seen.
Chilliwack Halfbreeda Refuse Any Aid
or Information to Provincial Police.
New Westminister, May 17.���The provincial police have expectation of being
able shortly to locate the body of Alex.
Murphy, a Chilliwack, balfbreed, who is
believed to have been murdered at Harrison Mills on March 16th. The police
have been much hampered In their
search for clews regarding Murphy's
death by the extreme reticence of tho
Chilliwack halfhrecds, who are the only
people who know anything at all about
the affair. Much difficulty was experienced in getting enough evidence to
warrant the arrest of George Billie and
"Old Man" Billie, on the charge of
On the recommendation of Chief Constable Spain, however, the attorney general's department has offered a reward
of $250 for the discovery of the body,
snd hundreds of bills bearing this announcement have been sent to Chilliwack for distribution.
The haltbreeds are loth to give each
other away ln matters of this sort, not
so much from motives of friendliness
as from dread of revenge. Many of the
IndlaiiB and haltbreeds of the valley and
district are bound together by tteB of
blood and kinship into sort of a league,
and to this league George Billie and
"Old Man" Billie belonged. All the
halfbreeda and Indians of the neighborhood, many of whom the police aro certain know the whereabouts of the body,
have steadfastly refused to give any
evidence on the matter. It is, however,
anticipated that the offer of $860 will
overcomo this feeling, and that the body
will shortly be forthcoming.
Through tho evidence of Dan Dick
and Joe Charlie, haltbreeds who were
at Harrison on the night of the murder,
the police believe that the body of the
dead man was twice shifted and Interred ln different pnrts of (he yard before being carried away to Its present
hiding place. Throughout the whole affair, George Billie and his father behaved, according to all accounts, with
the greatest coolness and nonchalance,
moving the body from one place to
another as though lt had been a Back
of oats.
The whole trouble arose out ot a
drunken fray. The men had all gone
to a dance at Harrison. George and
Alexander were enemies of old standing. From flats they went on to cord-
wnod sticks, and It waa a blow from a
weapon of this sort that ls thought to
have killed Murphy.
Central American
Guatemalan President Must First Be
Deposed���United States tnd
Mexico as Guardians.
City of Mexico, May 17.���As forecasted in the despatches of May 8, there
Is today further reason to believe that
the present difficulties ln Guatemala
may lead to the greatest event tn the
annals of Central America, namely, the
federation of all of the republics of
Central America. There ls also reason
to believe that such an outcome would
not be unacceptable to either Mexico or
the United Stales.
The flrst step to thla end will be a
revolution against President Cabrera of
Guatemala, headed by General Toledo,
and backed actively by President Zelaya
of Nicaragua and the chief executive of
Honduras and Salvador. It Ib expected
that Cabrera will be driven from the
presidency of Guatemala within the next
90 duys. General Toledo will be probably the new president of that republic,
bnt he will act long enough to bave the
country agree formally to enter the
federation. Honduras and Salvador will
thereupon follow suit. Zelaya ls to be
president of the federation of the re-
publlca upon giving pledge to Mexico
and the United States that he will call
a general election shortly after the
scheme Is perfected. The presidents of
Gautemala, Honduras and Salvador will
act aB local governors during the Interim.
The republics of Costa Rica and Panama will be invited to join the federation, and it Is believed that expediency
will result in their accepting the lnvita-.
Preparations for the revolution
ajalnst President Cabrera are being
pushed with activity. The revolutionists are being equipped with machine
guns and modern artillery.
President Cabrera, foreseeing his
danger, has endeavored to make concessions to the Mexican government. He
bas offered to surrender Col. Onofore
Bone, a witness In the Barillas assassination case, and to try General Lima,
who Is implicated ln the recent murder
of former President Barillas of Guatemala.
Mexico received this proposal coldly
and replied that the case was now
closed, so far as this government was
Senor Qamboa, the Mexican govern
ment representative to Guatemala, has
been transferred to Salvador.
President Cabrera, realizing his desperate position, ls indulging In cruelties
at home. Even high class Guatemalan
women are being imprisoned and subjected to indignities and forced to perform menial labor for the soldiers and
prison keepers.
It is said that anarchy Is too mild
a term to convey a correct conception
of the existing conditions in Guatemala.
Official correspondence characterizes
the state of affairs ln Guatemala as similar to that which prevailed at the in-
qulsitlon. It has been asserted that
President Cabrera holies to hold the
army and people loyal to himself by
these methodB. ���
American Ex-Chief of Police Reaiata Ar-
reat With Revolver,
Monneson, May 17.���Thomas Guest,
chief of police of Bellevernon, three
miles from here, was fatally shot last
night by William Cates. his predecessor,
who then walked down Main street firing a 38 calibre revolver $l everyone
who attempted to approach him. Before tho police officers who had been
summoned could lock him up, he wna
severely beaten and a crowd threatened
to lynch him. Chief Guest arrested
Cates on a charge of disorderly conduct.
While searching him, he suddenly drew
a revolver and fired a bullet Into
Quest's forehead. Threatening James
Frost, another officer, Cates escaped
from the jafrto Main street, where he
began firing at everyone he saw. No
motive Ih known except that Cates had
been drinking.

Ontario'e Appeal to Supreme Court on
Truet Funds Dismissed.
Ottawa, May 17.���The result of today's Judgment of the supreme court
dismissing the appeals of the province
of Ontario against the Dominion will effect uny of the other provinces that may
bave trust funds with the federal authorities. The Dominion government
has held since Confederation truBt
funds of the province of Ontario amounting to $1,909,000 for the grammar
schools and Upper Canada college building and improvements.
Up to January 1st, 1906, the
Dominion paid 6 per cent. Interest
From that date It was Changed to 4 per
cent; the Dominion at the time offering
to pay the principal.
The case was brought to the exchequer court where lt was decided that
the interest should be 6 per cent, but
the Dominion had the right to pay the
principal disposed to do ao. The
province appealed to the supreme court
and it has been dismissed, so tbat the
federal government will now pay over
the principal to Ontario with one per
cent. Interest from 1905 to date, making
$45,0(0 In addition to the 4 per cent,
already paid. No costs were allowed to
either party.
Rievlew oTFIrat Year's Work of Kootenay Diocesan Branch of Women's Auxiliary.
The annual meeting of the Women's
Auxiliary waa brought to a close yesterday afternoon when a large number
of members of the Parochial branch attended ln order to bear the closing address, given by the Rev. R. H. Graham,
which was followed by a tea given by
the executive.
Mr. Graham spoke In high terms of
approval of the work that had been
accomplished by the Kootenay diocesan
board in its flrst year, and specially
commended the spirit of the president's
address, as being the right one to govern the actions of tha board���that all
W. A. work should be done with a sincere love to our Lord Jesus Christ, remembering how dear to His heart was
the true missionary work. When He
sent forth His apostles to carry the
light of the knowledge of the truth to
all the dark places ot the earth, He
set the example to Christian workers of
all times. There are those who are not
Interested ln missionary work, but the
work ot the W. A. was to arouse Interest ln those who are carrying out
Christ's commands, and we shall And
that increased knowledge ot the subject
extends the Interest In others. From
very small beginnings we may have
great results, and today we may look
upon hlnghuid's greatness aa the result
of some ot the flrst missionary work.
As a great German philosopher has lately said: "Religion ls the backbone of
England's greatness, and nothing but
the weakening of the mainspring of her
religion will ever lessen her power."
And woe be to ub lf we hand not on the
gospel to those who know tt not���and

Church ot England In Canada. Mr.
Graham closed his address with a few
words ot good wishes tor the president
of the local branch, who la leavng for
England tomorrow, wishing her and Mr.
Bird "bon voyage" and a safe and happy
A vote of thanks waB then carried,
standing, to the Ven. Archdeacon Beer
for his kind attendance and help at the

for his kindness In permitting the parish room to be used for the meetings,

"It la marvellous to us New Zealand-
era that a little over a quarter of a century ago Winnipeg had scarcely more
than two hundred of a population," said
A. G. Stewart, the leader of the trio
Sunday night, "and," he continued, "it
wonld be an utter Impossibility to build
a city Uke thla ln New Zealand- in that
space of time."
Despite tlle fact that he la confident
that New Zealand la a second Canada,

patriotism toi the land of the Maori
he claims that acre for acre, New Zealand la wealthier and more prosperous
than Canada.
The trip ot the three sun-browned
men from the 86uthern hemisphere haa
been a long and Interesting one. From
lnvercargyll, away down near the foot

up to the land or the South Cress, to

through to Winnipeg.
Of the Rocky mountains the party

"Our democratic government," he
said, "Is doing all It can to facilitate

Tena of thousanda of acres ln the North
Island cannot be touched aa It ls owned

it Is necessary to go to the court, get
every single member of the tribe to

"In the south Islands there are three
systems for obtaining lands. The Drat
Is by meana of the perpetual lease
whereby you obtain a leasehold for 99
years, the second by deferred payments,
that Is to say you buy the land at a certain price and are allowed a certain
number of yeara to pay It off.
"One great thing our government la
doing Is to smash up large holdings. A
bill will be brought up before the legislature In June the principal features of

that all unaold government land will be

introduces his last editorial as fallow*:
"A government that has been In
power for 11 years, and is stronger in
its personnel and mere deeply rooted in
The confidence of the public after the
expiration of such a term, must have
gained its enviable position by an unbroken line of pledges faithfully kept."
The first statement is almost true.
the government has been in power nearly ll years.
ls it stronger in its personnel than
at first? Oliver Mowal. David Mills A.
G. Blair. Israel Tarte and William Mulock were clean men and men of respectable talents. Are Hyman, Emmerson.
F. \V. Borden et al., a stronger personnel?
"More deeply rooted in the confidence
of ihe public"? We shall see.
But 'an unbroken line of pledges
faithfully kept"! Passing over the Manitoba school question, which was transient, what were the Liberal pledges?
To "wipe out Um iniquitous system of
protection"': retrenchment in national
expenditure: reform of the civil service: prevention of electoral corruption: preservation of provincial rights.
and of the Independence of parliament,
by preventing members from voting in
the bouse after promise of appointments.
Further comment Is unnecessary. Can
any Liberal point to, not "an unbroken
line" but to one single pre-election
pledge that has not been broken?

MAY 17. 1907.
The Imperial Conference which
closed on Tuesday has naturally been
the subject of discussion and comment
throughout the Empire, but especially
in London where it was held, and where
scores of banquets kept the fact of its
presence prominently before the people.
The Hritish journals of Conservative
leanings are unanimous in declaring ibe
conference a failure or worse, Tbe
journals which support the present British government have littie to say on tbe
subject beyond explaining and apologist-
lug for the unsympathetic attitude of
the ministers toward tbe aspirations 3f
the colonies.
It Is probably quite true Lhat with a
Free Trade and anti-Imi��eriallBt government In power In Britain nothing worth
while could have been accomplished
There are some apparently who think
thst tbe mere gathering and making of
polite speeches was all that the oon
Terence was intended for. and that.
therefore, it was a brilliant success
Tbey are \o U- It :;citated on their eas>
AU resl Imperialists hoped for much
more. They hoped that something genuine and substantial might be accomplished in the way of arrangements for
co-operation in defence of the Empire
They hoped that in spite of the attitude
of the present home guvemnlent on the
trade question, there would have been
such unanimity among the colonial
statesmen as would have compelled an
early reconsideration by the people of
Britain. All other matters are of secondary importance.
It Is claimed by some that the conference has actually accomplished soiue-
thing. and the instances given are the
arrangement for meeting once every
four   years,   and   for   an    all-British
rout*1 to Australia via Canada.
As to the flrst. quadrennial conferences were agreed upon in 19U2. and the
agreement was modified by the home
government; as to the second, while all
credit will be given to Sir Wilfrid Laurier for the motion, all that has really
resulted is the appointment of a committee to consider the matter and report, presumably in 1911.
It would be Idle to pretend any gratification at such paltry results.
The whole Empire is now divided into
two parties, and. in Britain and Canada
at least, the dividing lines are identical
with the party lines of Consevatism and
Liberalism. Conservatives advocate the
organic unity of the Empire,, which is
uot incompatible with the fullest measure of local autonomy; Liberals, insisting only on local autonomy, prefer a
drifting policy as regards inter-Imperial
The only valuable result of tbe recent conference is that this issue has at
last been placed fairly before the people
of all parts of the Empire.
The gentleman at Ottawa who furnishes Liberal newspapers throughout
the Dominion with partizan editorials
in the guise of special despatches, propounds the interesting theory that the
nnly proof of good government Is the
growth of trade and of revenue. Apart
from the obvious absurdity of it, that
a'C'irn'-n: would prove the Incapacity of
the McKenzie administration, of which
Sir Wilfrid Laurler and Sir Richard
Cartwright were both membera
Conservatives are not detractors of
their country when in opposition. They
rejoice in the present growth and prosperity of Canada, the harvest af the
seed sown by themselves while Liberals predicted ruin.
What they object to now in the financial policy of the government is that so
much of the annual expenditure is
squandered or dishonestly spent, that
tbe annual uncontrollable expenditure
has more than doubled In ten years, and
that liabilities against capital account
are Incurred so recklessly and on so
large a ������ ���' 4<
But the vonservatives hold that a
government must conform to other
standards besides showing a credit
ledger balance.
The gentleman at Ottawa aforesaid
The settlement of all disputes between Nelson and the West Kootenay
Power and Light company is the most
welcome news offered to the people of
this city for a long time. The financial
differences involved are a trifle compared with the mutual advantages of a
good understanding. The new plant of
the company at the Upper Bonnington
Falls ls the most complete of its kind
in Western Canada. Geographically it
is nearer to Xelson than to Rossland.
and Nelson is in a far better position to
benefit by it. Nelson is also the natural
and most convenient place for the
headquarters of the company, which has
hitherto been antagonized and kept out
of Nelson by misunderstandings. A
friendly agreement to the advantage nf
both has long been desired and is at
iast attained.
Sir Wilfrid writes "a friend." evidently for publication, a little eulogy of Gen.
Botha, in which he says, among other
things; "We have become great friends,
and ln the work of the conference I
have had his cordial support on all
points." Laurier has had Botha's .-..:������
port.' All other writers from the conference, except Sir Wilfrid, agree that
the personality of the Boer general absorbed all interest, even Sir Wilfrid's
faultless tailoring being eclipsed.
The members of the board of school
trustees are confronted with a peculfar
situation. The Utile opposition so far
offered to the School Loan Bylaw has
been based ostensibly oil the excessive
outlay required. Oue influential citizen
declared yesterday that he felt tempted
to oppose it on account of the proposed
economies. He wants a building first
class in every respect with no sacrifice
for cheapness.
The Daily Canadian has no quarrel
with Mr. Fred Chapman's opinion, private or official, as to what is in order. If
he and hia "brothers" prefer "taking ���
vacation" to "going on strike'1 or 'walk-
ing out," it is really no affa;'r of ours.
An announcement Qt plans for an aggressive and comprehensive campaign
of publicity Ib expected at tonight'a

Copper   Situation   Satisfactory   to   Producers Everywhere���Pricea
Remain   High.
The copper situation remains unchanged, pricea firm at $25 to $25.60
for Lake and $24.37% to $24.75 for electrolytic. New York advices are that
there ia urgent inquiry from abroad for
Mny and June deliveries, leading to the
heller lhat there Ih a large foreign demand io he filled in the near ruture.
Present and ruture price for the metal
largely depends upon thc United Metals
Balling company, ll that company maintains prices, and it is believed that it
will, the large consuming interests will
reenter llie market��� compelled to do so
to fill industrial contracts.
Mr. George Westlnghouse, president
of the Westlnghouse Klectric & Manufacturing company, one of the world'B
largest consumers of copper, says:
"The situation as to the consumption
of copper today Is practically as it has
heen for a long time. There ls nothing
to warrrant the belief that prices of the
metal or conditions as to production and
consumption of copper will be changed,
except in an unimportant degree, for
so far ahead as business men can see
into this year's trade nothing but a
commercial catastrophe can mar the
present favorable conditions in the development of our resources. It seems
to us, judging from what is gathered
from the principal miners and consumers of copper, that the steady gains of
consumption over production ln the
wortd'B supplies of copper are still progressing. So far as the consumption of
copper by electrical engineering interests is concerned, there is a considerable increase, not only in this country,
but In other countries In which industrial aclivity Is prevailing. There Is now
on the books of makers of electrical apparatus in America and Europe much
more business than ever before. We do
not hear from any important Interest
with which we do business anything
about a recession in contracts. This applies to all lines of power machinery
and collateral channels of trade."���Los

The price of peaceful possession of
mining property in Mexico is a strict
compliance with Mexican laws. In most
cases It is probable that, the companies
falling to observe these laws have
property of doubtful value, and are
"operating in Mexico" for what can be
made in stocks tn the United States.

No man can tell how cloth in the web
will suit his taste and expression when
It Is made up. That is one Semi-ready
idea, to forego the effect. The mosl expensive cloths are used, hence one doeB
not get the cheap and independable in
Semi-ready tailoring. Still, the good
value of the "Semi-ready" is surprising,
for much of the greater cost of fine
cloths used Is saved in the expert system of a splendid equipment, and one
can still save from $5 to $10 on a
"Semi-ready" suit as compared with
the disappearing custom tailoring.

Washington, D. C, May 17.��� President Roosevelt has granted a conditional pardon to John L. Lennon, a nephew
of John L. Sullivan, serving a sentence
at Governor's island for alleged desertion from the marine corps while In
Cuba. The conditions named by the
president is that Lennon re-enlist and

dishonorably discharged. When Lennon
was captured after his alleged desertion
he had been absent three days. Mr.
Sullivan was in Washington recently
Sullivan while in Washington recently

argued that his relative did not Intend
to desert but had merely overstayed his
leave ot absence. The president exercised clemency and decided to give Lennon another chance.

China Admits Helplessness���Cannot Enforce Neutrality.
Mukden, May 1".���The repeated
promises made by the Japanese for the
past three years to return to China the
property appropriated through the exigencies of war. are still unfulfilled. In
consequence of this China is expressing
much indignation at what is considered
a gross breach of faith.
As yet the recovery of a large amount
of government and private property in
numerous places throughout Manchuria
which was appropriated by Japan without compensation, on the sole pretext
that China had failed to observe neutrality in allowing Rupsia to occupy
these properties, is considered doubtful.
This excuse is not considered honest
since Japan is fully aware of China's
helplessness to enforce neutrality,
while Japan in regard to abuse of neutrality is considered equally guilty. Russia holds much appropriated property
which has been leased to Japanese trad-
ers without any CgmggBgt-Bon to China.
