To them manipulations of the market are as naught. They care nothing
for the battledore and shuttlecock of
the speculator: know nothing of the
"bulls" and "bears" or the rise and fall
of stock certificates. They are men entirely disinterested, men skilled by
training and experience to "size up" the
possibilities and probabilities of tbe
mine, to determine its qualities and
solve Its defects.
The Nlplssing has been under the microscope of science, and has been pronounced good.
The mining superintendent who was
In charge of the sightseers was asked
the question: "Why. In view of this
wonderful plenty, and the steady shipment of your ore. Is so much public
doubt evidenced in the value of your
"Manipulation," was the monosyllabic
response. "There Is no use telling the
public anything." he added. "They must

they want to bear tho stock, and so

Railway Commission Hard
on Grand Trunk
Company's   Counsel Says  Statute
from which Authority h Drawn
Is Obsolete.
Montreal, Aug. 6.���The judgment of
the railway commission directing the
Grand Trunk Pacific railway to issue
third-class tickets at the rate one cent
a mile, and to run third-class passenger carriages attached to one train per
day each way, Is the most Interesting
topic of conversation in railway circles
In Montreal today.
The verdict of railway men from the
official statement of the leading railway
officials of both the Grand Trunk Pacific
railway and the Canadian Pacific railway, is that tlie Judgment Is "that of a
foolish body," because the act under
which It is given has long since been
Mr. Charles M. Hays, second vice
president and general manager of the
Grand Trunk railway .against whom the
proceedings to put on the "penny a
mile" car were taken, 1b in Montreal,
but was not at all inclined to personally discuss the question. He answered a question put to him by saying:
"I have no official notification of the
finding of the commission and therefore
have nothing to say." Mr. Hays was
asked If he would make a statement for
publication, and he replied that he
would prefer that Mr. W. H. Biggar,
general solicitor of the Grand Trunk,
should make any public announcement
that is to be made.
Mr. Iltggar, discussing the question,
said: "It Is not necessary to say that
there la a law udder which the Grand
Trunk Is ordered to put on Its train between here aud Toronto a third-class
cat r age. in which passengers can ride
at a rate of a penny a mile." The act
was passed In 1872, and was called 'An
Act Incorporating the Grand Trunk
Railway of Canada.' In the act there
was a clause to the effect that the
gauge of the road was to be six feet six,
that clause has long since been declared a thing of the past, and I think
it is only reasonable to figure out that
the reference to the penny a mile, which
has never been followed, should also be
considered obsolete.
"The Quebec East Road, a part of the
Intercolonial, has the same terms attached to Its charter, but who ever
heard of It putting on a penny a mile
Korean Delegate Tells Americans  How
Orientals Scheme.
New York, Aug. 6.���A little man that
has a big mission reached New York to
day in the person of TJong Oul KI,
prince of the royal house of Corea and
late unsuccessful suppliant for his country at The Hague, He has come to
America to explain how Corea has been
buffeted by Japan, hopes to see President Roosevelt and Secretary Root and
to stir America Into some sort of Intervention. As the price of It all. the
prince believes that Japan Is out to kill
him as soon as it gets a good chance.
He may be assassinated here, he says,
but he thinks Japan will wait till he
gets back to Corea.
Prince KI came on the Majestic with
his fellow delegate, YI Sang Sul. who
was vice-prime minister of Corea until
forced out by the treaty of last November. YI Tjone, the third delegate, died
suddenly at Tne Hague of heart failure
when be learned that his emperor had
Said the prince: "If your nations
would only wake up to what Japan Is
trying to do In the Pacific, Japanese
goods are going into Corea free, Eng
tlsh goods are taxed fifty times over.
It will be the same In China. Japan
Is jealous of the United States because
she wants the Philippines���and will get
them too, If you don't look out. Japan
Is now very warlike and boastful; thinks
she could command the world. You ask
me If she will ever fight the United
States ? Well, here Is a figure foi you.
A well dressed man may have empty
pockets, but If you are an Intelligent
peoplo, I. ask you not to trust Japan
ns a friend. The Japanese cannot be
true frlenda. Their two first characteristics are ctmnlngand treachery. You
have heyrd this ? You don't believe ?
I tell you It Is true. I know the Japanese. They don't know what real
friendship means."
Story    From    Atlantic    Liner���Father**
Forgiveness Depended on Heir.
Chicago, Aug. 6.���A special to the
Inter-Ocean from New York says: "This
morning the steamship Nteuw Amsterdam arrived at Its pier with 730 cabin
and 1600 steerage passengers. The
death on board the Nlenw Amsterdam
of a one-year-old child on the fourth
day out forms a somewhat tragic feature in an unusual story. Cornelius
Jepkens earned tho displeasure of his
parents, who are residents of one of
the Holland settlements In Michigan,
by marrying a young Frlesland girl,
while on a visit there two years ago.
The parents, who are weathly, disinherited him. Shottly after his marriage
Jepkens wrote to his father asking forgiveness, but the latter remained for a
long time obdurate. Letter followed letter with the same result, until finally
the young husband received an epistle
giving him much consolation. It stated
that if he should visit the parental home
when the first child was a year old, provided It was a boy, he would not only
be reinstated In favor but his father.
who is advanced In years, would directly make a will naming his as sole heir.
Never was a child so jealously guarded or so lovingly cared for as the young
Jepklns baby. To tlie grief of the parents the little one sickened and dier
of convulsion on the fourth day out
from Rotterdam. The orders were flrst
to bury the little one, but the parents
objected; they wanted to carry the
child with them, if not alive, at least in
Its casket so that its grandfather might
see it. This was finally agreed to and
the child was embalmed and placed in
a casket. This morning when the vessel arrived the parents shipped the
casket on ahead and* telegraphed the
grandparents. Mr. Jepklns will not be
sure until he reaches the Holland settlement In Michigan and sees his father
whether, when his child died in mid-
ocean, his hopes of Inheritance did not
die with it.

Tuesday, August 6, 1907.
Since tbe tacit acceptance by the
Liberal party of tlie tariff bequeathed
to them by their Conservative predecessors in office, tlie opinion has been
sedulously fostered that there is no
longer any substantial difference between the two parties. Such a view ignores the history of the National Policy,
its origin and by far its most Important
For a period of twelve years, from
1854 to 1866, Canada and tlie United
States had a tariff arrangement which
almost amounted to free trade. The
abrogation by the United States in I860
of that treaty of reciprocity, was followed the next year by the confederation of the Canadian provinces. A cum
mercial war began at once. Although
American statesmen as a rule disclaimed any wish lo include Canada
within the union, no effort was spared
to reduce its people to commercial dependence on the United States. And
the effort was nearly successful. The
Liberal party of Canada co-operated
with American statemen to crush their
own country. In fact, Commercial Union
was one of the many forms assumed by
the Protean tariff policy of the Liberals. Edward Blake recognized thai
commercial union if achieved would
Inevitably lead to political union, to lhe
severance of the tie that binds Canada
to the British Empire, and to national
effacement. He was not prepared to
travel that road, even for the sake of
political triumph, and he resigned from
the leadership of tlie Liberal party.
Wilfrid Laurier hud no such scruples
He accepted the vacant post and con
Unued to advocate commercial union ol
unrestricted reciprocity���with America
continually raising its tariff wall, the
two phrases were identical in meaning.
The campaign of 1891, the last Con
servative victory In Dominion politics.
was won because Canada was convinced
that the policy advocated by the Liberals tended to the severance of British
e^nneetions. In spite of the disclaimers of the some of the Liberal leaders
the party was suspected, and although
the veteran Conservative leader was
dying and the succession was uncertain, although Canada, in common
with the rest of the world, was suffering a period of depression, and the
N'aiiunal Policy seemed a failure, the
suspicion of disloyalty was enough to
ruin  Liberal hopes.
At that time the line of cleavage was
distinct. The Conservatives stood for a
National Policy of commercial and industrial independence of the United
Slates, and of the maintenance of Canada's position in the Empire, the Liberals were frankly indifferent to either.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier's greatest achievement as a politician was inducing his
followers to abandon temporarily their
policy that would have led to separation
from Britain. He saw, as few if any
of his own colleagues saw, that the
great majority of British Canadians
would not accept such a course. His
next tariff cry, "Free Trade as they
have it in Engand," was absurd but it
sounded loyal. It seemed to promise
the repentance of Liberals of their Independence or annexation aspirations.
That and the Internal difficulties of the
Conservatives, aided by the continuance of the long period of depression accentuated by the world-panic of 189:1,
carried the Liberals to power In 1896.
Since then Sir Wilfrid Laurler has
made no attempt to meddle with the
tariff features or the National Policy.
Time has proved their wisdom, and
agafn Sir Wilfrid was astute enough to
read public opinion and to recognize
that the country would not tolerate any
interference. He swallowed his silly
rhetorical denunciations of "the iniquitous system of protection" and allowed
the country finally to reap the harvest
of which the seed was sown for It by
Sir John Macdonald.
To many it has probably seemed that
in so doing he has accepted the whole
of the National Policy and become a
loyal British Canadian with British aspirations and ideals. The Toronto News
dec'ared the other day In what was
honestly intended for an impartial survey of the political held, that on nil Important  questions  Sir  Wilfrid  Laurier
stands precisely where Sir John Macdonald stood.
Tliat is a fallacy. Wilfrid Laurier
can never stand where Sir John Macdonald stood, until he Is born again.
Hoes anyone imagine that had Sir
John Macdonald lived Canada would
have been the last to send troops to
Soutli Africa to fight Tor the cause of
the Empire, that she would have refused to pay the cost or any part of it,
lhat he would have had to learn his
duty, and Canada's purpose, from a political opponent, or that Canada would
now be tho only British nation that refuses any contribution to the Imperial
No one can seriously pretend to believe that any of those humiliations
would have been suffered during the life
time of the great premier.
No, Wilfrid Laurier does not, and
cannot, stand where Sir John Macdonald stood. He has learned wisdom as
to the trade features of the National
Policy, but he Is incapable of accepting
or appreciating what is by far the most
imi>ortaut part of that policy, its unswerving allegiance to British connection and British standards and ideals.
Although prudent concern for his
own and his party's interest keeps him
either silent or uttering glosed nothings about the majesty of the Empire,
carefully modified by protests for Canadian autonomy and anxiety as to the
constitutional correctness of his position, he stands precisely where he stood
when, in 1889, he picked up the flag of
separation which Edward Ulake refused
to   carry   further.
The victory of Conservatives on the
tariff issue is complete in spite of 1896.
Victory on the larger issues of British
connection and the perpetuation of
British ideals in Canada, is still to be
On the subject of Mr. Pugsley's quest
of a cabinet appointment the Mail and
Empire pertinently observes: "Mr.
Pugsley is said to be after the Cabinet
vacancy created by the resignation of
Mr. Emmerson. But can it be so ? Mr.
Emmerson resigned In order to vindicate himself, and the announcement
was made that after the vindication
Mr. Emmerson would resume his place
In the government. Mr. Pugsley is Mr.
Emmerson's counsel, if Mr. Pugsley
were to take the office and Mr. Emmerson were to be put out for good, would
It not be fair to conclude that there is
no vindication as yet, aud no hope of a
vindication in the future? Mr. Pugsley cannot take the office without pronouncing his client guilty, and that
would be a terrible thing to do in the
case of an innocent man.
An amusing controversy is being
waged In the preas of Ontario and Quebec about a trifle. An artist was commissioned by the Dominion government
to paint agroup representing the first colonial conference, held in Ottawa in 1894
under the presidency of Sir Mackenzie
Howell. The artist devoted moat of his
attention to the faces and figures of Sir
Wilfrid Laurier and Sir Kichard Cart-
wright, who were not members of the
conference but merely visitors. Whether
the artist was specially instructed or
acted on his own discretion is, of
course, not known. A Conservative paper merely drew attention to the fact,
and although it was patently true, the
Toronto Globe promptly denounced the
statement as a He.

No   Cabinet   Material   Available  to   Sir
Wilfrid Laurler Because Clean
Men Can't Serve Him.
Under the caption "Bricks Without
Straw'* the Mall and Empire discusses
the difficulties to be faced by Sir Wilfrid iJiurler In reconstructing his cabinet out of the material now In the
House of CommonB. A part of the article Is aB follows:
To the work of furnishing up the discolored Ottawa cabinet Sir Wilfrid Laurler has now to apply himself. The
task, however, is somewhat similar to
that Imposed upon the Hebrews in the
days of their captivity, liricks have to
lie made: but without the materials necessary to their production. The unhap
py situation ts attributable to the steady
decline in the moral and intellectual
qualities of Liberalism In recent years.
A decade ago the Liberal party was led
by experienced men. Ontario gave
Mowat and Mills, in addition to the
present representation. Quebec tendered
Joly and Tarte. The far East con
tributed Blair and Davies.
The strong leaders have disappeared.
Some, as, for example, Mowat and Joly.
Ihastened to take refnge fn office in
order to avoid responsibility for the
transactions to which they could not
conscientiously consent- Others dropped
out upon special issues. Mr. Tarte left
laecause the government refused to be
progressive. Mr. Blair followed when
the Grand Trunk Paclflo enormity was
designed contrary to his advice, and for
the special purpose of providing a new
scheme for tbe looting of the treasury.
Mr. Mills hurried to a Judgeship when
he saw what was going on behind the
Bcenes. thus imitating Sir Louis Davies,

the Prince Edward Island leader. Few
of the original men remain, and these
are In office only because they are subservient and unprincipled. The suc-
cesors of the former ministers are men
of Inferior capacity. We have Mr. Hyman in the place of Sir Oliver Mowat,
and-Mr. Aylesworth in the position formerly held by David Mills. Jacques
Hureau is the successor of Sir Henry
Joly, and Mr. Lemleux, the windy postmaster general. Is the representative of
Mr. Tarte. A gentleman by the name
of Templeman Is also In the cabinet,
taking the place, but not the portfolio,
vacated by Mr. Blulr, while Frank Oliver is representing Slfton. Outside of
the cabinet there Is no promising material. Along the government benches
one looks in vain for a man of talent,
of force, and of leadership. To a dead
level of mediocrity the party has fallen.
It Ib because of this state of affairs
that gigantic efforts are made to boom
the leader, upon whose artificial glory
the entire party is trying to exist. Why
are there no new men In the Liberal
ranks ? Why is It that the governing
or ruling faction, that ought under proper auspices to draw ambition to Its
aid, falls to attract? The answer seems
to be found In circumstance that Liberalism, as such, has ceased to exist
The Liberal party, the party with a policy, wrong though the policy may have
been at times, has expired, and In its
place we h��v�� simply a band of officeholders. There U today no such thing
as a Liberal policy. There Is no proposal to reform a single wrong, no promise of legislation relieving the people
of the oppression, the enormous taxes,
the exactions und��r which they suffer.
A party with no ralson d'etre but office for a few men. and polts, or "rake-
offs," for Its principal workers, cannot
summon to its counsels the better class
of men, the men who want to do something for their country, the men who
regard public service as a trust to be
used for the people as a whole, and not
for the individual. The Liberalism of
today, therefore, repels the worthy element among the people, and attracts
only such politicians as are either inefficient or selflBh. Sir Wilfrid Laurier
cannot form a strong cabinet, because
the material Is wanting, and the material Is wanting because he has abolished principle, and has based his party
upon opportunism and greed.
Demented Mother's Act.
Baltimore, Aug. 6.���During a reoccurrence of insanity which haa caused her
to be thrice confined in an Insane asylum Mrs. CBristine Nenadal, 24 years,
wife of Joseph Nenadal today strangled
her two small children. Suspicion was
aroused by sounds coming from the
Nenadal house, neighbors tried to enter
but found all the doors locked. A policeman finally broke open the door but
was too late to save the lives of the
children.    The mother is under arrest.
