The club met in the public school at
8.80.   The minatea or the last meting
Were read and adopted. Thu con.-m :
of thf programme committee announced
thai V. W. Odium would read a paper
at the February meeting, and that a
tlrait programme ��-" the year would then
be Submitted*
Tiie chairman ol the university committee reported that the club s pamphlet
bad been printed aud circulated aa ordered.
Moth   reports   were   adopted.
Kev. F. II. Qraham then read a paper
on '"The Modernists.' ile thought that
few periods of the world's history were
marked by so keen and so general intellectual activity as the present. Much
of tills activity is devoted to speculation  on   religious problems.
The Modernist school stands for freedom of thought against the papal authority in spiritual things. Their most
conspicuous doctrine ts "immanence-*
or the indwelling ot the Divine, which
Is gradually being un lidded ami developed. Involved in the doctrine is the f
idea that all knowledge aud all consciousness arc Trom within. They implicitly reject external revelation as impossible and claim, with the so-called
Higher Critics of all denominations, to
analyse the scriptures _s merely human literature, no more inspired than
any   other  critics.
To these contentions the Vatican Opposes  the  traditional  papal  authority,
the traditional belief in divinely inspir
ed writings, and the ilmliin ol "inger
i nc " ���*e new word if not a new doctrine,���the working Of the divine upon
and within the human soul, Involving
Objective reality of the tlodhead and
���xteriml inltuence upon the mind and
heart of man. But with this reply nre
Involved a number of anxious or postulates, not all religious fn their nature,
to which a-sent is required, and upon
,-rhiO- question and doubt are forbidden.
s. S. Fowler praised the paper aa an
interesting treatment of an Interesting

Chicago, Jan 80.���A model "poor
man's church," with plenty Of soup, biscuits, religion and possibly beds, is to
be a branch of a great revival now In
progress In 807 churches tn Chicago,
under the SUSpiCea of Ihe laymen's evan
gellcal movement. The plans for thr
new church were announced yesterday
by I). A. C. Dixon, niiRtor of the Moody
church.     They   comprise   the   est thi ish
men! of the "open floor Church" in the
lodging house district for the purpose of
reaching the treat nrmy of unemployed.
Ottawa, Jan. 20.���A question arose in
the committee of supply about the travelling expenses of ministers on their
Kuropeau trips. There is a mystery
about Mr. I."r..deiir's expenses, lie lelt
toi l-Jugland In April, yet. received $::.-
000 on account of the trip during the
previous fiscal year ending in March.
Other payments charged to this account
amounted to $4.oon, but   Mr.   urodeur
i - is that this included a part of the
original $2,000, and also claims that
v��hi.e the government paid the lure of
Airs. Brodeur and placed It in the public accounts, he had on his return Irom
Kurope refunded the amount. It appeared that while the Minister received S2,-
OUO before stalling, he left hi,-. Canadian
ra.lv.uy fare and ocean steamship pas*
sage to be charged up to the government accounts. The whole thiim is
one of those muddles which continually
occur In the marine deparuneut. li is
cei Lain Mr. Urodeur's expenses were
over $4,000, but whether ihey wen ov< ���
$6,000 he and his accountant together
could not oxplaiu. Yet the whole expense and entertainment of the delegates to the Imperial Counc.l and of the
families With them was borne by the
Imp rial Covernment, so that from thu
time lie put his foot on Kngiand until
he left there the minister was the gni Bt
of the nation. How he managed to
spend the $4,00d or -$0,000 or more
chargeable to Canada is as mysterious
aa his accounting.
in the marine department the exam-
pie of Mr. l'rodeur ami his predecessor
is followed. The travelling expenses of
the olHcers are outrageous. Officials not
of high standing are allowed $10 a day
living expenses* Some of them are said
to be travelling on passes while the
country pays their way. Those who
stay at home have got the departmental
books into such a mess that the government has paid over $48,00-9 within the
past few months to outside accountants
to get them straightened out.
Mi auwhile tlu. lighthouse and coast
service under their control has been a
happy hunting ground for all manner of
plunderers. It was shown in the session of looo that agents of American
firms were selling ro the depart men r
supplies bought from Canadian establishments right under the nose of the
Officers and making profits of from 50
to W0 per cent, in the transaction. The
cost of (he department has In ten yours
increased from a little over one million
dollars to over five millions, the staff
aas been nearly doubled in number, and
the sciindals have been mors numerous
p-ven than those in the railway, the mil*
itia, the interior or lhe public works.
In one year alone there were exposed:
The Morwin contracts.
The Montcalm's silver outfit.
The Arctic scandal.
The flies scandal.
The Kestral affairs.
With B targe number of smaller incidents.
On Friday Mr. Taylor and other members gave the minister a hard time over
some ol the bills Of Ids department.
They showed that the country was paying  at   the   rate  of  $_;">   per   month   per
mac im* raw provisions bought for the
gov.ernmcnl vessels. At the same time
those vessels Whose crews were sup
plied with provisions by contract with
the captains OOSI only $15 per month
per man. and Mr. Talbot a governmenl
supporter declared that to his knowledge captains were making $18 and $l*Ti
per day OUl  Of the contract.
It was shown hy Col. Hughes thai *'a
ttona supplied on contract to the mlli
lary oosl only at the rate of $7 and $-**,
per man per month, or less than oni
third the outlay for the men on the
Ships. The sillers tire fed no hotter, so
there la B large rnko-off somewhere.
Mr. Taylor showed that part of the cost
wa    made up by excessive prices.

Of tlie commission had received $2,250,
but had not accounted for the money.
Mr. Bennett had a snuggle with the

the matter stood, and learji-jd at la^t
that Mr. Hirnie had received $17 per
day for his services. His colleague.
who knew nothing about fishing matters, had to be content with $0 per day.
The minister of militia was also at
the imperial conference, and like others
was entertained in England hy the
home government. His trip seems to
have cost $4,000 for alleged expenses,
and his official business did not take
him away from Kngiand. It was mentioned in tbe committee that this minis-
t t was one of the greatest private car
travellers fn the cabinet, and there are
several who spend much Ume movsnx
about this continent with parties
of friends in government cars. Several
members declared that this junketing
about in government cars had become
such a scandal that it must be investigated. The Canadian people who see
this thing g-oing on all the time are
are forming the opinion that some at
least of (heir ministers have very little
to do except to amuse themselves and
entertain their friends with excursions
at the  public expense.
The custims revenue for Dccenib*. r
shows the decrease from that of the
same month last year. This is due to
decreased imports and Is Uie first of a
pfTol able succession of such decreases.
A falling off in revenue comes at the
same time with the rapid increase in
expenditure, and means that the debt
will advance more rapidly than in ay
previous year since Sir Wilfrid Laurier
took offlce. This is not a convenient
time for such nn Increase of debt, since
the interest rate is higher than il has
been for a quarter of a century, and no
finance minister since confederation
has had so much trouble to borrow
money as Mr. Fielding has experienced
In the last twelve months.

Judge Dowling Refuses
to Clear Court
Evelyn   Thaw   Relates   Disgusting
Story Which Is Alleged To Have
Driven Prisoner Insane.
New York, Jan. 20.���When the Thaw-
trial was resumed at 10.20 o'clock this
morning Mrs. Kvelyn Nesbitt Thaw was
called to thy stand to repeat her stor>
of a year ago. District Attorney Jerome
immediately renewed his motion of last
Friday afternoon that the public, includ
in,; the representatives Of newspapers,
be excludeu trom the court room, lie
cited a criminal code tried in Monro*.
county several >ears ago as a precedent
lor excluding all persons except those
immediately   concerned   with  the   trial.
Justice Dowling declined to exclude
the public from the trial.
New York. Jan. 2U.���Mr. Littleton, for
the defense, said he desired to leave the
matter entirely iu the hands of the
court. District Attorney Jerome declared he understood Mr. Littleton to join
in the motion wnen it was made last
Friday aud did not quite grasp thk
change of front.
"1 said on Friday," retorter Mr. Littleton, "tbat I would like to spare Mrs.
Thaw from the gaze of the idle, OttrioUS
public, hut to all points of legality and
propriety I reiterate what I said then,
that the matter rests entirely with the
Justice Dowling said lie had consulted
all the authorities cited by District Attorney Jerome and could find no war-
:ant under the constitution for excluding the public from a capital case. The
harm done by publishing the details of
revolting testimony, he said, would more
than offset the safeguards around th.-
defendant by granting him a speedy and
pablie hearing. "The court will not exclude anyone who conducts himself witii
propriety." concluded the court.
Mr. Littleton then asked Mrs. Thaw
to tell the story of her experience with
Stanford White as she told It to Thaw-
In Paris in 19011 when he asked her to
become his wife.
District Attorney Jerome at once offered a strenuous objection. Ile argu. d
the matter at some length. "Here is a
recital of years before the homicide,"
declared the prosecutor, ''and 1 contend
that it does not come within the limits
of any precedent that 1 now know of.
It certainly does not come within the
Wood case, where the man to whom the
story was told was so mentally affected
that he immediately went off and killed
a man. This recital by this witness is
too remote, lt is absurd on the face of
it to say that this conversation three
years before accounted tor the Insanity
of the defendant at the time of the
killing. Certainly under the widest expansion of thf' Wood case we ought to
have some scientific testimony, addressed to the court, not to the jury, Uiat a
conversation of three years' standing
could have had any effect on the defendant's mind."
Justioe Dowling interrupted the attorney to say he found nothing In the
authorities fixing a time limit to conversations or statements Inducing or
tending to induce Insanity.   Be thought
the  Wood  case  covered   the   point  and
overruled  the objection.
Young Mrs. Thaw was suffering from
a bad cold and coughed frequently
while testifying. In response to ques
tions from Mr. Littleton*, the witness
told again, but mors briefly than last
year, Of her experience in the 21th street
house where she was taken to lunch
with Stanford White and drank champagne aud became dissy. She toljj
again of tho velvet swing and the mirrored room and the big Japanese pars
sol attached to the ceiling.
"Every time you were swung up to

"and a fresh one would he put up." I,vi

would take his seat Thaw would gaze
intently at his wife, fixing her with a
constant stare. When Mr. Jerome was
on his feet the defendant would crane
his neck to get a view of the blue clad
figure on the witness stand, with the
round velvet hat and Its crown of vio-
le-ts. Mrs. Thaw, as last year, constantly reiterated that she was repeating
what she had told Thaw in Paris. District Attorney Jerome constantly ol>-
jeeted when it seemed to him the w-it^
ness was transgressing. Justice Dowling ruled that. Mrs. Thaw first must
tell all she remembered cf the conversation without any questioning from
counsel unless It appeared the witness
had forgotten any details, when her attention might be call, il to them. The
witness said her experience In Uie 24Ui
street house occurred after her mother
had been sent by Stanford White to
visit friends in Pittsburg.
Mr. Jerome here insisted that the witness first should tell all she could remember and then that the attorney
could go back over the. story with her
to add the details. The witness had all
her wits about her and when Mr.
Jerome offered some of his objections
she would turn to him and insist "that's
what I told him, Mr. Jerome."
mm di-feat sua
Mnrquis   Katsura   of   Daido  Group-Has
Joined   Forces   With   Progressive
Party to Oppose.
Toklo. Jan. 20.���At the Daido club today sixty members of the lower house
In the diet issued a manifesto which
proclaimed unalterable opposition to the
financial policy of the government. This
is one of the significant developments
of the significant developmt-nts of the
present situation because Marquis Ka*
suia, the former premier, is recognized
as the leading spirit of the Dlados although he does uot lay any claim to the
position of leader. This action unites
the Daidos with the progreHsive party
ami practically unites Uie opposition. In
which event the government would be
defeated in its attempt to carry through
the budget. Up to the present moment
it was generally believed that Marquis
Katsura and tho prime minister. Marquis Saionji', had reached an agreement
on the subject.

uor of the governor-generai. hut of the
Uoiiiiiiion giavt.-rnment. The premier is
not in any way responsible for the lieu-
tenant-governor*8 action.
At the time, neither the Times, nan
its "weird sister," the Vancouver
World, had a word to say. The argu
ment was conclusive and reply was impossible.
.Now it returns to the charge, not
with anything new, but with the same
senseless insinuations that there is
something mysterious that the premier
is bound to explain, and that if he can*
uot make the lieutainaut-governor bar-
have he should secure his removal,
-anli suggestion from a Liberal organ
is mere impudence. The lieutenant
governor is removable only by the pre
tnia-r of Canada. If Sir Wilfrid Laurier
bad been alissatisfled with his conduct
be w.uld have been removed long before now.
Can it be that our local rontempor-

Plans Public Ownership.
London. Jan. 20.���Public ownership
and control of all tlie means of life occupies the foremost place in the list of
topics scheduled for discussion at the
eighth annual conference of the British
Labor party, which began at Hull today,
to continue until Thursday. The Amalgamated Society of Engineers, probably
the largest and wealthiest labor body in
the world, will introduce one of the
most definite and far reaching propositions looking to public ownership. It
has been framed in the following terms:
"That, in the opinion of this conference,
the time has arrived when the Labor
party should have as a definite object
the socialization of the means of production, distribution and exchange, to
he controlled by a democratic state in
the interest of the entire community,
and the complete emancipation of labor
from the domination of capitalism and
landlordism, with the establishment of
social and economic equality between
the  sexes."

Treatrr.ent    of    British   Indians   by   the
Transvaal  Government Creates
Grave Problem.
I-iondon, Jan. 20.���The great problem
of tho mixing of Uu Asiatic and whit.
races it> coming to a Hpeedit-r and graver iHsue than the dispute between the
United States arid Japan.. A crisis haw
already developed bo rapidly that the
home government find* Itself confronted by the most Beriot-w Imperial question it has yet encountered.
The courts of Pretoria and Johannesburg imposed sentences of two and
three months' imprisonment upon several prominent natives of India, who
had refused to furnish finger prints and
other means of identification, as a condition of remaining in the colony.
Thousands of Indian! in both cities
have held mass meetings and processions iu protest against laws applicable
only to criminals or slaves*. Resolu*
tions were adopted setting forth: "We
welcome the inhuman sentences as a
test of Indian suffering, but lor the sake
ol humanity and the Empire we deplore
them. These sentences, notwithstanding, we are resolved to continue the
struggle which we have undertaken,
in the name of God."
The Indian portion^of the community
only asked G<*n. ainuts, Colonial Secretary of the Ttausvaal, to receive a deputation, but he refused. There the matter rests for the moment, but it will nut
rest long. The situation is an impossible one for the British Goveruinen'
to defend or allow to continue. The precarious condition of India, as well M
the boast of equal rights within the
Empire, which is one of the cardinal
point of the Liberal party, makes it impossible. Yet there seems no way out
of the im;.asse into which the liami-.r-
man Government walked blindly when
it granted the Transvaal an independent
The .secret history of tlie difficulty is
illuminating. The new regulation was
approved by L-ord Elgin, Colonial Sec
retary, a few weeks ago without consultation with his colleagues of the
cabinet. He has been taken sharply td
task by his associates, and his explanation was in effect: "1 was threatened
with a rebellion if I refused to sign the
ordinance. So 1 had to d oso." Of
couise, he had expected no such drastic application of the new measure and
its effect locally. Still less did he an-
Mclpate the appalling danger which ho
created in  India.

Advice   From  George   Ham.
Geo. II. Hani, known as a publicity expert from one end of the Dominion to
the other, was one of the chief speakers
at a public meeting held the other
evening in the New Westminster
council chamber for the purpose
of discussing ways and means of
thoroughly advertising the resources of
that city and district throughout the
older provinces and in the old country.
Discussing various methods of advertising. Mr. Ham laid strong stress upon
the unapproachable advantages offered
by newspapers, which he considered the
best advertising medium of all. Hla
contention was that the advertising that
paid best was the advertising that was
presented to those interested under the
guise of news. He advocated the en-
.-at;in of a man who could write
breezy, snappy stories, which would Ik*
accepted by the eastern paperB and
published without cost to the city
-tnder because of the fact that they
would be treated as _0WS. Booklets,
pamphlets, picture circulars, and other
attractive literature, was also a splendid means of attracting attention to a
city, according to Mr. Ham, who detail-
d the work that had heen done by
��ther cities, instancing Nelson and Saskatoon, which had exeat ly Increased
their  population  by   this  means.
