The League of American Municipalities, in contradistinction lo the National Municipal League, is an organization for the purpose of studying the
practice, rather than lhe theory of
municipal government. It is composed of men in municipal office, from
mayors down lo street superintendents, and Us membership in the

workers in the municipal field. These
men. having been forced to meet all
conditions thnt arise In the management of municipal affairs, arc ln a
position to discuss the ninny problems
Involved from the standpoint of their
experience. The league Is strictly a
practical organization, and its work ls
being prosecuted continuously, and not
only during the lew days of its annual
convention. Probably Ihe most Important work of the organization is
done every day of the year through lho
league's permanent bureau of Information, which Is established for the purpose of providing the members with
information pertaining to the progress
and prnctlce of municipal governments
The league also publishes an official
monthly magailno devoted to practical
municipal affairs.

vent ion of the league there is being

Saturday, Mr. Yamamagata, minister
of eommunlcnllons, said that hy means
of the nationalization of the railways
expenses would be diminished nnd
freight rales lowered, nnd that this

ally. A law would be enacted, he said,

Interest from the annually Increasing
profits, and other means would be left
to defray the expenses necessary for
the improvement and extension of tho
linos. Mr. Yamamagata expressed
Ihe opinion that Ihe future of the nationalized railways was full of bright
hope and promise.
Fair Sex Take Prominent part in Terrorist Operations.
llerlln, Sept. 26.���Insurance companies will soon he justified In refusing
life risks of Russian generals, ifthelr
extermination is to continue at the
present rate. The latest advices from
Warsaw are to the effect that the governor of the city, General Skalon, is a
doomed man. The general is on close
terms of intimacy with the chief of
staff. Councillor Jatscheffskl. Both
gentlemen are ardent admirers of the
fair sex. A day or two ago the general received a scented note in a lady's
handwriting, requesting him to hand
an enclosed letter fo his chief of staff.
The writer explained that she feared
the note, if sent direct, might fall Into
the hands of some lady of the addressee's family. The general, suspecting a love intrigue, was much amused,
and immediately sent for M. Jatscheffskl, who , strange to say, reported
having received an exactly similar letter with an enclosure for General
Skalon. The two enclosures were then
compared. They were Identical, and
announced that sentence of death had
been pronounced upon them both by
the revolutionary committee.
Rise In Price of Salt.
New York, Sept. 26.���The Journal of
Commerce today says: "The International Salt company raised Its prices
on all grades of salt approximately 60
cents per ton. This Is said to be the
third raise within a period of three
months, yet it is expected it will place
the commodity upon a price basis
equal to the top notch figures of last
season. The reasons given for tbe
latest advance are that the shutting
down of two of the largest producing
plants In the Utlca district has caused a shortage In the supply; that the
demand is unprecedently large, and
that difficulty has been experienced
in securing cars on which to transport the product.
Bryin in the Southwest.
Little Rock, Ark., Sept. 26.���William
J. Uryan was given a cordial reception

cheered at the conclusion of his address, which was along the usual lines.

Alester, Muscogee and other points
along the M. K. _ T. He is due at
Vlnlia this evening and will spend the
night there.

plain declaration or an official ultimatum, and that no hostile act shall

Smuggling Farmers Caught.
New Westminster, Sept. 26.���Word
comes from Sumas that Canadian customs officials rounded up a number of
Canadian subjects residing along the
boundary line between Blaine and Sumas last week, for taking goods across
the line from the American side without reporting at the customs office or
paying duty. A large number of farmers were vlBlted and their belongings inspected for smuggled goods and
articles to the amount of several thousand dollars of American manufacture
were discovered on which the Import
duty had not been paid. Among the
goods are farm machinery of every description, household furniture, lumber
snd building material.
No arrests were made and no goods
confiscated, but the offenders were
asked to call at the customs office and
pay the duty to the government on or
before September 22 and avoid both
confiscation and arrest. A warning
was given them that hereafter they
must ln all cases call at the customs
offices and report any articles taken
across the line.
The farmers have, in every instance,
appeared and paid the duty.
A Multl-Fructous Tree.
Portland, Ore., Sept. 26.���A tree
bearing 23 distinct varieties of fruit
anu nuts ls growing on the farm of
Thomas Glaxo in Benton county, this
state. It is healthy and flourishing.
Mr. Glazo undertook to grow the tree
as an experiment, and by Judicious
grafting he has produced a marvel. He
secsred all the varieties of peaches
and plums he could and grafted them
on the trunk.of a healthy growing apple tree. All the grafts are growing
and bearing. Then, as a further experiment, be grafted an almond branch
on the same tree, and lt also Is growing well.
Still Lowering Rates.
Chicago, Sept. 26.���The Central
Passenger association at a meeting
yesterday decided to put in effect, November 1, a 2%-cent rate In all its
territory east of Illinois iu which the
state legislature have not already made
a maximum rate of 2 cents. This Involves a lowering of the interstate passenger rates north of the Ohio river
and west of Syracuse.
Tramway Returns to 23rd Instant Ovsr
$5000���System  More Then Paying Expenses.
After the declining receipts of the
week before, the tramway returns for
the week ending September 23 again
return to a high figure, due in part
no doubt to travel to and from tbe
fair grounds.
The number of passengers carried
during the week was 4650, against
2525 for the corresponding week of
last year; the receipts being 1240.80,
against $136.85, an increase of $103.95,
or more than 75 per cent.
The returns for the year to date are
$5165.90, against $4340.16. to the same
date of 1905. The weekly average for
the whole period Is a little over $135,
but for the actual time of operation
it is about. $180 a week.
The estimated revenue from the service for this year was $5000. That
amount Is already exceeded, and there
are 14 weeks of the year still remaining.
Assuming that the receipts for Ihe
balance of the year do not fall below
the average to date, which is not an
extravagant assumption since inter
ruptlon of about eight weeks have materially reduced the returns so far, the
tisial receipts to December 31st will be
about $7000. As the annual cost of
operation Is $9,000 and the tramway
company pays 60 per cent, of any deficit up to $2,600, It is fairly certain
that the loss this year will be under
$1,000.   The loss last year was $2,250
But It ls stl'l more important that
for the last, four months the system
has more than paid expenses.

Operation Begun Early in
At last it ls absolutely certain that
all the machinery, hydraulic and electrical, manufactured for the city ot
Nelson power plant by the Allis-
Chalmers-Bullock company has bqen
shipped from tbe factories and Is on
its way westward.
A definite letter to that effect was'
received last night by J. O. Gillice,
local and district manager for the
The machinery was all shipped by
September 15 .and has, therefore, been
now 11 days on the road. As a former shipment came through from Cincinnati in 10 days, the whole of tho
machinery should arrive in Nelson not
later than the beginning of next week.
Mr. Gllllce ls now wiring for his
own satisfaction, as well as for that
of the mayor and city engineer, for
the numbers of the cars containing
the shipment, so that lt may be traced
by tbe freight agents here and any
further delay prevented.
Mr. Gillice ls also wiring to learn
the date of arrival of the hydraullo
engineer who ls to be sent here to superintend the installation, and whose
coming has been dally expected for
more than a week.
According to the terms of the agreement between the city and the company, a third of the total amount became payable on the date of the last
shipment. A draft for a little over
$14,000 was received this morning and
accepted by the city ln pursuance of
that agreement.
It is now only a matter of a few
days more and the equipment of the
plant will begin. All possible preliminary work - has already been accomplished under the supervision of H. C.
Bullis of Cincinnati, the company's
electrical engineer, who has been ln
the city for several weeks. The completion of the plant and the beginning
ot its operation may now be hoped for
by November 1.
It has been a long wait, and mayor,
council, city engineer and local company manager have long since grown
weary of Indefinite assurances; that
progress was being made, that the machinery was being, about to be, or
would soon be, shipped.
Although informal statements have
been made by men connected with the
company that the repeated delays have
been due, in every Instance, and
wholly, to labor strikes, no formal
statement to that effect has yet been
made on the company's behalf. It
v.ili be remembered by readers of The
Canadian that the company, through
W. P. Uhl, agreed to a forfeit of $50
a day for every day's delay after August 1, unless such delay were due to
a strike.
Whatever may be the explanation
finally offered of that agreement,
there will be general 'gratification at
tbe announcement that the end of the
period of long waiting is ln sight, and
that within two months at most the
the people of Nelson will be enjoying
their own light and using thetr own
power, a purpose which has been constantly kopl in view for more than
six years.

The general conference of thu Methodist church, a quadrennial gathering
representing a Methodist moniburship
in Canada of hundreds of thousands
is drawing to a close. The fragmentary reports appearing in the Western
press give but a faint idea of the importance of the gathering, lt is the
supreme legislative body of the largest Protestant chureh in the Dominion
and the changes or alterations in ihe
policy of tlie Methodist church which
may take place under its direction are
of supreme importance not only to
members of the Methodist body but
to the religious life of the whole Dominion.
There were three questions of importance which largely dominated the
discussions of the conference besides
B multitude of minor issues which
have to do with the details of church
government. One of these was the
missionary policy of the church, and
another regulations governing the itinerant system of the Methodist ministry, that is to say, whether the present
rule making four years the limit a
pastor may serve on any single charge,
should he modified or reiained. The
conference after considerable debate
resolved to maintain the present regulations and so it remains the law of
the Methodist church that four years
completes a   pastor's term  of  service.
We think this is a wise regulation
as but few of the pastors find their
fields congenial alter a four-year term.
Religious bodies do nol soon adapt
themselves to change anil it has been
the custom in the Methodist church,
since the adoption or the system of
inviting ministers, to see one well
nettled in his place aud then begin to
negotiate for his successor .lusl how
far this practice has been responsible
for the limitation of a minister's usefulness to four years need not be noted, but for most of those in the ranks
of the ministry b ohange is welcome
at the end of that period. This atale-
ment makes no reflection either upon
ministers or individual churches, hut
the decision to maintain the length
of the barm at four years has one fatal
weakness. It will keep alive the system of wire pulling and place seeking
and man seeking that has been one
of the weaknesses of the Methodist
church for many years.
Trom the layman's point of view,
one of the most import anl questions
before the conference was that of the
abolition of the footnote, as it is called. To those outside of the Methodisl
church the term may convey little
meaning, so we shall state the conditions which it was sought to have altered. The "Rules" of the Methodist
church, though somewhat archaic,
were written by John Wesley to be a
guide to his humble followers and an
Instruction as to what constitutes
ideal Christian life. As such they aro
sublime and outside of thc New Tes
tament there is scarcely to be found
a general definition of what constitutes truly Christian conduct than that
designated   in   these  rules.
Nearly a quarter of a century ago,
however, tbe general liberalizing of
thought and broadening of conscience,
with resultant license in conduct,
made its appearance in the doing of
things by members of the church that
were in the eyes of the truly pious,
sinful and to be condemned. The general rules were considered insufficiently stringent and a "Footnote" was
added  which  reads as follows:
"The general rules are to be understood as forbidding neglect of duties
of any kind. Imprudent conduct, indulging in sinful tempers or words,
the buying, selling or using of intoxicants as a beverage, dancing, playing
at games of chance, encouraging lotteries, patronizing dancing schools, attending theatres, horse races, or taking such other amusements as are obviously of a misleading or questionable moral tendency."
The indiscriminate way in which
this rule fixes the ban upon wholly
dissimilar actions, placing recreations
that may iu themselves be innocent
in the sume class as those which are
of gravely immoral nature has had the
effect of keeping thousands out of the
Methodist church who love her doctrines, polity, history and missionary
spirit. During the last twelve years,
that is to say, at the last three quadrennial sessions of the general conference, a radical element has sought to
have the rule (.Unlimited or qualified
or made admonitory as instead of prohibitive. The storm which has raged
round the question of revision of the
rules has been at times tempestuous
and has perhaps more often than anything else led to their own violation
iu the matter of indulging in sinful
tempers and words, Strangely enough
those who most persistently violated
that feature of the footnote have been
ihe greatest sticklers for its retention.
It was hoped that this year would
see some compromise affected which
might free the great Methodist church
from having a prohibitive rule which
is universally violated and which it ia
never attempted to enforce. Those
who hoped this have again been disappointed. The question has been relegated to a committee who are instructed to look wise during the next
four years and then report at the next
quadrennial session and in the meantime the footnote stands.
Many of the good Methodists In Hritish Columbia dance, attend theatres,
play at games of chance and both patronize and encourage horse races. The
same is true of all the urban centres
of the East There is no penalty as-
Signed for the violation of tho rules
and consequently no action against or-
tenders is ever taken, a few preachers hurl anathemas at imaginary offenders but the force of this is all lost
in ihe generally anomalous attitude
of the church.
The general conference has passed
another milestone in Ub history and
the church stands jut where It did or
perhaps even a little less creditably
to Itself. In the meantime, as one or
the Toronto papers remarks, the song
of the modern Methodist will be:
"On with the dance, let joy be un*
We are told that "In the ten years
that have passed since the adequate
protection apostles were swept out of
ofrice the country has grown so fast
that there is scarcely a city In tho
Dominion that does not suffer from a
house famine,"
This is true, but il must be remcin-
bered lhat while the apostles of adequate protection wero swept out of office their policy was not radically altered. No doubt the old tariff was
modified by the Hritish preference,
and there was a lowering of certain
imposts. On The other hand, the iron
and steel duties and bounties Imposed
and maintained by the Liberal government represent an extreme application
of the protectionist system. So the
dumping regulations are a thorough
application of the principles of the adequate protectionists who were swept
out of office and succeeded by the advocates of tariff reform ���Toronto

Organized Labor.
The right of labor men or any other
class to organize an independent political party is undoubted, says the Ottawa Citizen, and becomes a matter
for respectful consideration when the
party in question is organized with
the sole view of advancing the interests of the rank and file of the party
which is alleged to be represented, lt
will be generally admitted that the interests of labor are fairly well looked
after at all times by whatever party
may be in power. On the other hand
the record of "independent" labor parties in the past has been that the
leaders have been chiefly interested,
not in improving the conditions of labor, which lacks little in the way o(
improvement at the present time, but
for the purpose of bringing to the
front alleged manipulators of the
labor vote who, as soon as they secure
governmenl positions ihat removu
them from the necessities of labor, allow the working man to shift for himself. It may be, as the Journal says,
that party leaders look after themselves, but any organized political
movement that has as its object merely securing positions for the leaders
derogates labor to the position of the
foreign political elements in the United States, where padrones round up so
many votes for delivery, the price being paid in positions or coin for the
men who deliver the vote.
