Town Achieves International Notoriety
���How Money Was Lost.
(Bpeclal isi Hie Dally Canadian.)
Greenwood, 11. C, Aug. 17.���-A bit of

Items of Interest to Conservative Readers
Sworn Info-mation as to Manner
in Which Manitoba Was Carried by Liberals.
Otlawa. Aug. 17.���During "Lhe late
Hosslim a special committee, charged
wiih the a-.wn--lmet.t3 tu the Kleclion
law, took occasion to inquire Into the
circumstances of lhe last Dominion
election in Manitoha. The "thin red
line" scandal was partially investigated.
A number ot the electoral lists with
the lines through them were exhibited
and a fair idea was obtai led nf tie
way In which certainly three an.l probably four* seats were stolen for tho
government out of the ten scats in
the province.
A Beautiful Performance.
The process was simple aud effective. All it needed was the right kind
of men to work it, and as the government had the appointment of returning officers the scheme worked out
like a charm. It was safer than the
trick ballot boxes of Frontenac and
Hastings, more certain than the substitution of ballots performed In West
Huron, Brockville and West Elgin, and
'���vas less public than the cruise of the
Minnie  M.
In Manitoba the original lists are
prepared under provincial law, as they
are in other provinces. The Manitoba
system provides tov -the preparation
of a list before each election, and for
personal registration of electors every
year. When the Dominion electi in cf
1904 took place there was such -i re
vised list.
Local electoral districts in Maaitoba
are smaller than the federal divisions
and the boundaries of polling places
do not correspond. Returning officers
have the power to arrange the list of
polling places, assigning to each elector the place where he should vole.
It was under this power that the "thin
red line" lists were prepared.
How the Tri;k 'A'a�� Pla/cd.
When the revised lists w��*re received
from the printing bureau by the returning ofricers they were in a targe
number of cases carried or so it by
these officers to Winnipeg. There they
were received by H. E. A. Leach, who
had been a government campaigner,
and was at that time the chief organizer of the party in the province. It
ifc almost increedible but the fact is
established on the oath of the returning officers themselves, that they were
?trt>ctp3 *o tout} rn nr -rive their of-
was carved up and hundreds of r imes
were marked out with red line. Voters
whose names wore erased , had no
knowledge of the change until they appeared at the poll originally designated
and asked for a ballot. Some of them
were then told that Their names were
probably mi a list in some other polling
pTaoa, though if they were Conservatives they could not learn which one
It was. Hundreds went rapidly from
village to village all election day look
ing for their poll and never finding tt.
Hundreds were BtrUOh off in one plaee
and never registered In another. Hundreds were transferred to polls farther
from their homes than the one where
they expected to vote, nnd too far to
be reached after they had learned the
facts. Not one Conservative had nny
way of knowing before he went to the
polls what had happened. The rearranged lists were not posted as the
law required. Prlvatf notice was given
to any Liberals who might hnve been
t ransferred.
Mr. Leach was not an election official. Hp wns not openly known in the
ease until afterwards. Hut he had his
agents nil over the province beforehand
ascertaining the political sympnthlen ot
the electors and preparing for this
splendid operation.
Between Nine and Ten Thousand.
Additional light is now thrown upon
this steal by the statement of Hon.
Robert Rogers, minister of puhlle
works of Manitoba, who has made examinations of the "red line" list and
declares ihat 0888 electors were defran-
chiseii by this process. Tho following
Is the record hy constituencies: Mar-
la-Prairie, 1395; Souris, 1258; Llsgar,
1i:U; Macdonald, 1721; Selkirk, HOG.
Now, flic government majority was 10,
Jn Portage 885, in Llsgnr 180 nnd In
Selkirk 507. Marquette, Souris and
Maedouahl elected Conservatives In
���-.plie of this conspiracy. It seems plain
that if this fraud had not taken place
the representation of Manitoba would
have been seven Conervatlves to three
Liberals instead of seen Liberals and
three  Conservatives.
A  Matter of Testimony.
Some of the men concerned in thii.
conspiracy were prosecuted and a
number escaped to the United Sta-tes,
Several pleaded ignorance aud tbe juries disagreed as to their personal
criminality. Hut the main facts weru
well established. One deputy returning
officer, swore that he took tbe list into the office of Mr. Leach, who under-
took to fix it Tor him. He left the paper with the organizer and afterwardw
went back and obtained it with a
number of names struck out. Though
tbe returning officer was responsible
he did not take tbe trouble to ascertain whether the charges were proper
or not, as ls shown by his own testimony
This officer admitted that he left the
red line list open In the Liberal committee rooms after it had been fixed.
This was in Provencher, where ��>0_
were disfranchised and where the government majority  was 10.
in one polling place l^ names were
struck out and they were all Conservatives; in another polling division the
red line went through the names of
1"> men who had voted at thut plaee
for years, every one of whom was a
Conservative. It will be seen tbat Mr.
Leach did his work very well.
Verily He Had Hig Reward.
And he was not left without his reward. The election took place in November, 1904. Hansard for 1905, page
1152, contains the following question
and answer:
Mr. Hoyce asked: "Is R. E. A. I.-each
at present in the employ of the Canadian government? If so, what position does he hold, when was he appointed and at what salary?" '
Rt. Hon. Sir Wilfrid Laurier: "Yes,
he is inspector of Dominion lands
agencies, was appointed January 1,
1905, at $200 a year."
The premier did not even wait until
the criminal trials were concluded.
Deplorable     Condition      of      Natives
Through Lack of Funds.
Toronto, Aug. 17.���The Constantinople correspondent of the Mall and Empire sends an account of a conversation with a traveler who is competent
to give an authentic and unbiased description of the true state of affairs
in Macedonia. He traveled through
Servia, Bulgaria and the three Mace*
(Ionian provinces of Turkey. His observations strengthen the widespread
conviction that the solution of the
Macedonian question is more remote
than at any time since the signing of
the treaty of Berlin. The traveler
"I found many districts, especially
the vilayet of Monastir and the northern frontier section, In a deplorable
condition. Villages and townships
were reduced to ashes and deserted by
nearly all their inhabitants. The warfare carried on by individual Christian
nationalities against each other was
never so cruel as now. Never was
there such insecurity of life and property. The bands of coinitadjls are
plundering and killing Macedonian
peasants and shepherds worse than
ever before. This applies to Bulgarian,
Servian and Green bands alike, though
there was recently a distinct dlminu-
tionofthe activity of the Bulgarian
���^���h*^'*^*"*i,��'t.c_Ung increase of
Greek misdeeds.
"The restriction of the ��-��.*..vity of
th. _>..��arian b..n.,o ls due solely to
the fact that the Bulgarians at home
and in Macedonia refuse further to
contribute funds, recognizing at last
that their sacrifices during the past
30 years have not produced the slightest change. They have simply been
robbed under the pretense of patriotism. The Bulgarians in Macedonin are
exasperated by the incessant extortion
of the revolutionary committees and
frequently rid themselves of this by
denouncing bauds to the Turkish authorities.
"In consequence there is increasing
Insecurity in Macedonia. The peasants
have olther emigrated or have reduced
their agricultural work to a minimum
and are preparing to leave the country at a moment's notice. Thousands
of Macedonians are emigrating to
North and South America. This emigration has quadrupled ln the past
three years. Monastir alone has eight
agencies of Trans-Atlantic shipping
caniiianles which advance the necessary cash qualification against the securities given by the intending emigrants.
Cut Throat With  Razor
Halifax, N. 8., Aug. 16.���A shocking
case of suicide is reported from Mjra,
Cape Breton, where Horace Dickson
Mayhew, son of Horace Mayhew, the
English coal baron and president of the
Cape Breton Coal, Iron & Railway
company, cut his throat with a razor.
Young Mayhew was spending tin

20,000   Club   Dances   Overwhelmingly
Popular���Two-Step Contest Won
by F. Bell and Mrs. Mallette.
The fourth pavilion dance of the 20,-
000 club, held at the tramway park last
evening was the most successful of the
series to date from the point of view
of social enjoyment, and also of financial return..
Every car traveling eastward from
8:30 to 10:30 had its carrying capacity
uixfd to the limit.
From the end of tht car line to the
park a line of electric lights was arranged and the former disagreeable
feature of the trip was removed. If
Nelson's most zealous and obliging
mayor could provide one more light ai
the turnstile on the sidewalk above the
railway track, the conditions would
be perfect.
The pavilion was "comfortably
crowded" with dancers the whole eve
ning and the park and beach were also
full of promenaders. Many b .d reached the park in launches, boats and canoes, the evening being perfect for wa
ter parties.
The music provided by Irwin's orchestra was excellent and dancing was
a greater attraction to many than thu
shady seats for two among the trees.
About 11 the event of the evening,
the two-step contest, began. About -!>

Nelson Liberals Have Two
Quiet mon make the most noise la
the world.
Final Choice Postponed After Long
Conference --Debate on Chinese
Question Deferred.
There was a meeting of the Nelson
[.literal Association in the board of
trade rooms last evening. Naturally
the Canadian wus not represented. The
Canadian is indebted to Its morning
contemporary for nearly all its avall-
able information about tbe meeting.
It is stuted. and may be true, that the
organization referred to is numerically
strong iu Nelson, and that every seat
in the bourd of trade rooms���there are
about 40���was filled, and that there are
still other Liberals who are not
As stated in last night's issue of the
Canadian the objects of the meeting
were two: to choose a candidate to lead
a forlorn hope at the next provincial
general election, and to debate the
IHtlitically ticklish questiou of the expediency of modifying the Dominion
government's policy of excluding Chin-
ese from the country.
Neither Object Waa Acomplished.
Apparently neither object was accom-
plished ln spite of the full attendance
and the punctuality of President Dock-
steader in calling the meeting to order.
Three names were mentioned for the
honor and responsibility of Liberal candidate for Nelson���J. Fred Hume, Dr.
(i. A. ll. Hall, and S. S. Taylor. Tha
lust mentioned gentleman, to quote
from our morning contemporary, "po-
lightly declined , saying that he had
sacrificed himself on the political altar
unsuccessfully at the last election ind
that be had no Intention of doing so at
the present moment tn this riding."
There are two implicit suggestions In
the undoubtedly faithful report. Either
Mr. Hume or Dr. Hall may "sacrifice
himself on the political altar in this
riiling" on the present or prospective
occasion, and Mr. Taylor may "sacrifice
himself on the itolitlcal altar" iu some
other riding. There is peculiar aptitude���.{tosslbly unconscious ��� ln the
Biblical figure of speech employed.
Anniversary of the Alma.
It had been intended that the victim
for the political altar should be chosen
by 8:40, and the remaining time
should be spent in debating the Chinese
question. But apparently, from our
csititeiuiiorary's report. It took the
whole evening to decide not to make
the final, ratal choice, and It will be'
September 20, the anniversary of the
Alma, before Mr. Hume and Dr. Hall
can know which ls to be the chosen,
and which the rejected offering for
the altar.
The reason assigned for the heal-'
tuncy, and it fills about half a column,
Is that there are some others, suspected of being Liberals, who were not
present und there was danger of a victim, if chosen last night, being the oblation only of a minority of a minority.
Deadlock In Committee.
As the executive committee of the
association was evenly divided between
Mr. I liinii' and Dr. Hull, the danger ls
probably very real. The deadlock In
the committee is evidently" the only
reason why the rank and file are consulted at all, and���can It be���that the
rank untl file are also evenly divided.
Evidently the nomluutlon of Mr.
Taylor was not meant seriously and
wu only a reward for his self-sacrifice
on a former occasion.
However, tbe Indecision served the
highly Important purpose of punning
ilu lime and avoiding the necessity for
the association, or any member of It,
to commit himself on the Chinese que*,
Under the circumstances It ls rather
difficult to see how���to quote again���
nny candidate Is "to be proposed by
the association unanimously and aa a
Tbo president iB reported to have declared In closing that "an opportunity
would be given to the fruit growers
on a subsequent occasion to give some
solid reasons for the policy they advocated."
Evidently, then, the association has
no intention of committing itself, but
will listen politely to lectures by fruit

France and Canada in Alms and Effect
of Legislation.
New Sunday laws, recently enacted
in France and Canada, give some Interesting indications of the status of religious sentiment in the respective
countries. In Prance the object aimed
at in this new legislation is to sectiro
a "weekly day of rest," and to bring
about ttiat end both labor unions and
clericals have lieen united. Thuugh
the law was part of the general program of the government for the improvement of the condition or the
working classes, objection arose in
some quarters on the ground that the
choice of Sunday as the day of rest
Seemed to show a return to the old
union of church and stale. The Independent (Xew York I is of the opinion
thai the French law will lie used as a
model for legislation on the subject in
other countries, We quote the summary it gives of the main provisions
of the new law:
"No Industrial <>r commercial establishment of any kind, whether public
or private, lay or religious, even of
those education or benevolence, Is permitted to work an employe more than
six days a week. The weekly period
of resl. should be 21 consecutive hours.
It should be bn Sunday. Wherever
the complete closing of an establishment on Sunday would be prejudicial
to the interests of the public, lhe weekly rest may be given for part or all
of the year tn one ot the following
ways: III On some other day of the
week for Ihe whole personnel of tho
establishment; 121 from Sunday noon
is Monday noon; (3. Sunday afternoon
with n compensatory holiday by rotation every fortnight; or Hi by shirts
In rotation or part or all of the employes. These exceptions can only be
made by direct authorization of the
government The day of rest by rotation 14) is permitted only to the following establishments: Hotels and era-
taur&nts, shops for sale of tobacco and
fresh flowers, hospitals, asylums ami
drug stores, baths, newspapers, museums, theaters and libraries, water
works. gaB works aud power plants,
transportation other, than railroads,
ami industries dealing with perishable
material or products. In the case ot
public works ef an urgent nature, such
as the prevention or repair of accidents, the weekly day of rest may be
suspended for the workman needed.
Railroads and sieamships are provided
for in another law"
Ueciddly more drastic are tlie laws
plaed on the statute books of Canada
by the parliament just adjourned. The
act was promoted by tho Lord'B Day
alliance and timed at securing a better
observance of the Sabbath. Hitherto
the mutter of Sabbath observance has
been left to the regulation of the provincial legislatures, but results have been
unsatisfactory. The organisation
which has been interested iu furthering
this legislation is said to be uonsecta-
rian in Its sentiment and membership,
but the work which It has achieved
may possibly challenge comparison
wllh the old "blue laws" which gave
Connecticut in its early days a reputation for drastic Sunday oversight. A
lay view of tlie Canadian law, from an
American standpoint, may be sen ln
His. following summary and running
comment In the Philadelphia Inquirer:
"Sweeping, itideeilj. are the provisions, comprehensive the scope, and
stringent the penalties of this new and
rather remarkable measure. All Sunday
trading Is positively prohibited, together with all remunerated service of
whatever kind, excepting only ln the
case of works of necessity and mercy.
Railroad companies must nol t-un excursion trains, or handle either incoming or outgoing freight, or do any kind
of work except such as cannot be done
al any other time antl is essential to
Ihe safety of the public. Theatrical
entertainments and public games, all
kinds ttf sports or amusements for gain
or prize or reward are placed under
the ban. So is the Sunday newspaper.
It must neither be published at home
nor Imported from abroad���meaning
���he United States���aud its sale or dls-
.    ^TTbs-thor thiB
la Bald to have been shot But so far
all their efforts, aided by a man named
Kock, who says he Baw Gilbert throw
the gun away, have failed to bring the
weapon to light.
J. H. Boyle, real estate agent, deposed to the circumstances attending
the sale of the Gilbert farm to Hen.
dcrson and Gilbert's subsequent anxiety, as stated by Henderson, to get
the farm back. He stated that Henderson informed him that the Gilbert's
were crazy to recover the property and
the old man had offered him $3000 for
it on the deal, but that he had named
STsiiii' as the lowest he would take.

l�� not stated, but logically it ought to,
it it doesn't.
"its penal provisions are made expressly applicable to corporations and
employers,     Under Qie  previous  pruc-
tie the penalty  for  Sabbath-breaking
wub only Imposed upon the net iml perpetrator of the breach. He la not now
porinittd to escape, bttt is liable to n
tine -graded up from $1 to $40; but tor
the employer the punishment Is more
severe, lie may be fined from $20 to
$100, or from $50 to $500 in the ca#e
of a corporation. What is regarded as
tl merit In the law Is Its impartiality.
It exempts no one. The barber nuiHt
not shave, the professional man must
not persist In his profe sion, the farmer must not take advantage of a fine
day to get in his crop In anticipation
of a threatened rain, at least It would
seem that he must not, although possibly this would be declared allowable
under lhe cluuse exempting 'works of
necessity and mercy.' It is true that
maple sugar may be manufactured In
the grove, but Hits Is such a small violation of the principle at stake that it
mny  be overlooked."
Tho Inquirer remarks that If the act
expresses the sentiment of the country
It can bo made effective; but If it does
not, nnd unless a demand for Its enforcement Is urgent and persistent,
It is likely to remain a good deal of
a dead letter.

He is full of the energetic development
which is taking place in the province
In which he lives. Speaking of the
Americanization of the Canadian West,
which many profess to fear, with many
of whom the wish is father to the
thought) he says there is not the least
danger. Those who are coming in
from the I'nited States are accepting
existing conditions most loyally and
heartily. Mr. Willoughby is off for a
holiday and leaves for the coast to
night or tomorrow night.
