Lahore, Hritish India, May 13.���Everything seems to point to the imminence
of a native outbreak here, and the authorities are taking all the sleps possible lo suppress It by force of arinB. The
isssl,iis*ssl unrest Is hourly assuming graver proportions.- Bands of stalwart rustics, armed with bludgeons, who have
beeu enlisted by the leaders of the sedition, are crowding Into the native
city, and troops of all arms uud bodies
of police mounted and dismounted, are
being drafted Into Uie city of Lahore
irom all parts of the province, The lor-
iilirntiniis of Lahore have beeu subject
io a special inspection aud the artillerymen have been reinforced. The Lieut.-
Governor of the Punjab. Sir Daniel Ib-
botson, is taking active measures to circumvent any possible outbreak. He has
issued a proclamation prohibiting meeting of every kind, and solemnly warning the public not to attend any assemblages under pain of aevere punishment
In addition Uie lieutenant governor has
struck at the root of the revolutionary
movement by causing the arrest of a
'lawyer, Lajaptrla, who practised lu the
chief court of Uio Punjab, and who was
the leader, financier and organizer of
most of the seditious denn-WBtrations
and revolutionary riots In the Punjab.
Immediately atler being taken Into custody Lajaptrla was deported to another
province. His arrest caused a profound
sensation among the Hindus, who hitherto had believed lhat the authorities
would not dare to take such drastic action. Another revolutionary leader, for
whoso arrest a warrant has been Issued, received an Intimation of the action taken by Ihe authorities and escaped from Lahore, and Is now In
hiding.

RAILWAYS^ PLANS
Big Development Expected This Year
PROGRAMME OF C. P. R.
Canadian Northern Restoring Service
���Grand Trunk Pacific Delayed for Material.
Winnipeg. May 13.���C E. E. Ussher,
assistant passenger traflli manager of
the C. P. It. stated that In anticipation
of an exceptionally heavy season^ot- j<*as-,
senger travel every step was being ���
taken to put ou a Transcontinental Pacific service which would meet all requirements. During July and August a
new fast train will be put on the service to leave Montreal three times a
week and to cross the continent In
probably 85 hours. The company also
had plauned to operate a train for the
first time between St. Paul and Spokane. The route would be over the Soo
line from St. Paul lo Portal on the
C. P. R., thence to Klngsgate and the
Spokane International to Spokane. This
would be the shortest route between St.
Paul and Spokane by a distance of 18
miles. A freight service over the Spokane International has been In effect all
winter and the passenger service was
installed April 1st. The train will he
placed in service on June 17th. Despite
the lateness of the spring season, Mr.
Ussher said that the spring traffic has
been unusually large, the passenger
traffic being about 85 per cent. In excess of the corresponding period last
year.
Winnipeg, May 11.���Frank Dilllnger
and J. Ogllvie, the railway experts who
have been travelling over the Canadian
Northern during the last two weeks,
examining transportation conditions in
connection with the congestion of traffic
returned to the city last night. Mr.
Dilllnger paid special attention to the
movement of freight traffic over the
road while Mr. Ogllvie dealt with thc
Investigation of the mechanical department of the work, paying attention to
the equipment of the road. Both experts will spend a few days In the city
In the attempt to obtain additional Information regarding condlUons in the
west, when they will submit a full reiiort to tho board of railway commissioners.
Mr. Dilllnger and Mr. Ogllvie visited
all the chief divisional points along the
road where the congestion of traffic was
formerly the greatest. A short journey
will be made over one or two branches
of the C. P. H. in connecUon with the
Investigation. Speaking of the condition of the traffic situation at present
In the wost, Mr. Ogllvie Btated that both
he and Mr. Dilllnger had found that
matters were now very much improvod,
and that In nearly every section of the
country the freight traffic was beginning to move forward with reasonable
rapidity. While a lack of equipment
was undoubtedly one of the great causes
of the blockade, Mr. Ogllvie affirmed
that the unusual severity of the winter
wns largely responsible for the hopeless
condition of affairs which existed
throughout the winter, qn Uie Prince
Albert branch the blockades were so
great that at Umes It was evidently
next to Impossible to attempt to operate
a train service.
Both stated that great precaution
would have to ho taken by the railway
coinpnnleB lo provide much greater
equipment for the lines In the west.
The country along Ihe roads as It was
at present was only beginning to be
developed nnd ns tho land became cultivated the traffic was bound to assume
far greater proportion than at present.
Even with the very best and most favorable of weather conditions, It would require very great care to properly handle
the traffic In tho rush sensonB of tne
year.
A large number of immigrants nre
uow moving westward, am! they are
enabled to move with much greater
freedom than they were a few weeks
ago The repaired engines which are
being placed on the lines nre not being subjected to such severe weather
conditions and consequently very few
of Ihem nro now being put out of service The lateness of the spring season
was probably a fortunate thing Inasmuch as tho siuldon oncoming of warm
weather would probably result disastrously In those sections where wnsh-
ntils were most liable to occur.
Mr llillingcr and Mr. Ogllvie will
leave tor the cast at the beginning of
next week.
Ottawa, Muy 13.���The Grand Trunk
Paclflc and lis contractors  are going
to have a hard time to complete their
line from Winnipeg to the coast for
1911, the date contracted for with parliament. The weather has been going
against the work and this combined
with the scarcity of labor and lack of
motive power on. the other railroads,
has thrown the work back the better
part of a year behind expectations. The
temperature and transportation are the
chief troubles.
The conl factors have graded many
miles of the line between Portage la
Prairie and Edmonton and have tbe
rails ready to lay, but -cannot get the
ties to lay them on. Contracts were
entered Into more than a year ago for
all the ties that wonld he required, but
the men have had trouble last year with
low water. They ,. sould not float them
to accessible points. This winter the
snow was loo deep to get them out aud
this summer there are none available
though the price has gone up from
twenty-live to elghly cents. Therfie-up
on tho railroads has prevented the contractors getting their plants ln. Foley
Bros, started an immense plant three
months ago for construction work In
the vicinity of Edmonton. It Is understood that none of it has arrived yet,
but ls scattered over sidings all the way
between Minneapolis and the point of
destination. The contractors arranged
for a sufficient supply of labor. Among
other things they paid the passage of
fifteen hundred men from Scotland to
do railroad work this summer, but the
season has been ao late that the men
cannot be made use of. Snow and frost
has prevented operations being commenced on any adequate scale so far.
Last year men were at work on construction six weeks earlier than the
present date.
Mr. Hayes expected that the Grand
Trunk Paclflc Would be able to assist
In hauling out the crop grown this year.
It does not,appear now that these expectations will be realized. The whole
of thc route from Winnipeg to the
Pacific has been approved, with the exception of twenty miles on the eastern
end and also ahout seven hundred miles
on the western end from the Yellow
Head Pass to the coast. It Ib known
that this will all be within the grade
limit of four-tenths of one per cent.,
with the exception of one pusher grade
of twenty miles. On this stretch the
grade will be about one per cent.
NO  LONGER A  HERO.
Sword of Honor Intended for Stoessel
Placed in Museum.
SL Petersburg, May 13.���The sword
of honor which was to have been given
General Stoessel, who commanded the
Russian forces at Port Arthur, for the
purchase of which a large fund was collected In France before Stoessel's fall
from favor, was formally presented yesierday to the museum of war by the St.
Petersburg Officers' Club. The presentation was made as conspicuous as possible owing to the embarrassing position
of the former hero. General Stoessel
was not able to attend the function. The
dedication inscripUon to Stoessel has
been effaced from the sword and In Its
place ls complimentary reference to
the Russian army.

LAUGHING AT BRITISH
Campbell-Bannermaa   Declines   to
Tell Probable Effect on Britain's Naval Policy.
London, May 13.���In reply to a question asked In the Commons today as to
whether, after the recent speech ln the
Reichstag by Chancellor von Buelow tn
regard to the limitation of armaments,
the government would proceed Immediately to the construction of a third vessel of the Dreadnought class, which it
had been intimated was conditional on
the result of the discussion of the limitation question by The Hague conference, Premier Campbell Bannerman
said that at present he was not prepared to make a statement on the subject. The government, he added, recog-
nlnzed the Importance of Chancellor von
Buelow's declaration, from which it
was apparent that Germany desired.
while maintaining her own view, to
avoid embarrassing the other powers
Interested ln the question. The BrIUsb
government desired to deal with matters in the same spirit, and recognized
that any quesUon regarding expenditure
on armaments could not he dealt with
except by agreement.
Berlin, May 13.���Count von Wentlow,
the well-known authority on naval affairs, submltUng reasons why Germany
is unable to consider the proposal to
limit armaments, proposed as a suitable
inscription on the portals of the conference hall at The Hague, the sentence: "If you wish for war prepare for
peace."
Cologne, May 13.���The German Fleet
Society, wheih Is holding Its annual convention here today sent a despatch to
Emperor William saying that the alms
of the Fleet society were to create a
strong navy for tbe Fatherland, "Which
In the hands of Your Majesty will be
the aurest guarantee of peace."
Major General Kelm, president of the
society, created great amusement by
stating that the British Naval League
had applied to the German Fleet Society for InformaUon regarding the methods by which the latter had attained
such phenomenal growth. General Kelm
added: "In our usual amicability we
sent them our bylaws and gave them
advice and Instructions." The Fleet society Ib for the hastening of the carrying out ot the German naval construction plan In view of the incessant Increase In the military and naval equipment of other powers, which the society
regards as a serious menace to
Germany.
PATHETIC   SCENES.
Shrlners' Excursion Train Wrecked in
California���Many Dead
San Francisco, May 13.���The trains
bearing Shrlners arrived yesterday from
the scene of Saturday's wreck. An excursion train containing 25 Shrlners
which had been but a few miles behind
the wrecked train arrived lust night.
The train was switched around the
wreck and the passengers agreed in the
statement that lt waa the most deplorable Bight they ever witnessed. Dr.
Ware, of Cincinnati, who was the flrst
physician to reach the scene, arrived
last night and told a graphic story of
the terrible scenes. The most pathetic
Incident was the death of a bride and
bridegroom almost at the same moment,
each believing the other still alive. L. N.
Ellenborgen and his brldo were members of the excursion party and were
thrown from the coach to the opposite
track. Both were mortally Injured, hut
regained consciousness and exhibited
remarkable bravery. The wife's first
thought waa for her husband and tho
husband's first thought was for his wife.
"Tell my wife that I am all right," murmured Ellenborgen. "Give her my love
and let ine know how she Ib. " Mrs. El
lenborgen In return sent a message to
her husband with the assurance that
she was all right. Before the physician
could carry another message both had
paessd away. Dr. Ware was compelled
to use driftwood for pillows and cut up
the sheets on the train for bandages. S.
Thornton, the head of a large, party of
Shrlners from Meridian, Miss., who
came through Lob Angeles un the Bee
ond seclon of the wrecked special, Is
at the hotel here. He Ib a railroad man
of many years' experience and Is not
satisfied Hint the disaster was caused by
a defective switch.
According to his statement tho sleepers were not badly uffectod hy the
wreck and ure largely Intact. They
were flunK In every direction, one of
them ahead of the engine, but they did
not collapse. Tbe San Francisco members of the Mystic Shrlners, consisting
of the Island Temple, and their wives
and daughters who were in attendance
at the conclave of the order In Los Angeles, returned here yesterday and were
the first to arrive since the wreck.
The train which carried the Shrlners
doomed to death In the wreck, left Los
Angeles 10 minutes ofter the Temple
special. By some unaccountable working of rate the flrst train, containing
the party that arrived yesterday, passed
safely at a mile a minute clip over the
very spot at which the following train
was wrecked.
1.0B Angeles, May 13.���A despatch received here discloses how the first news
of the accident at Honda reached the
railroad officials. It is said that after
the accident Conductor Jones climbed
the nearest telegraph pole and with a
telegraph instrument provided for such
purposes tapped one of the despatchers'
wires connected with the San Luis- Obispo division office and told of the
wreck. The men at the other end of
the line douhted* this story, believing
Borne one was playing a joke, but consternation followed when ln confirmation of his Identity .the conductor sent
a part of his late orders. News was Immediately sent to Santa Barbara and
other points.
American Swindler In Europe.
Zurich, May 13.���Charles Barmstal, of
Chicago, has been arrested here upon
the demand of the German authorities
charged with fraud. It ts alleged that
Barmstal obtained $16,050 last month
from a lady of Munich, Bavaria, to
whom he was betrothed. After obtaining the money it is alleged Barmstal absconded. He had $12,250 in his possession when arrested.
BOUNDARY FRUIT CROP
Sold in Advance on Winnipeg Market-
New Rich Strike Reported on
Little Bertha.
(���pedal to The Dally Canadian.)
Grand Forks, May 13.���J. L. Manley,
who owns an Ideal fruit ranch ot some
20 acres on the Covert estate, Is authority for the statement that last year
there were shipped to the Winnipeg
markets five cars of Italian prunes
grown on the estate. These prunes
brought a litUe over two cents per
pound on the cars at Grand Forks. He
also stated that this year's crop of
prunes had already been bought for
the Winnipeg markets. Mr. Manley himself has 700 fruit trees of mixed fruits,
which, this year, will net him f 1,000 The
Northwest and Manitoba fruit dealers
are already buying up all the available
fruit crops in this valley, so lt ls quite
possible there may be a scarcity of
fruit this fall for the local markets.
Two feet ot solid high-grade ore ls
the latest strike that is reported from
the Little Bertha property at Bannock
City. It is claimed that lt runs over ��60
per ton.
Capt. W. Bentley, an old mine owner
of this district, ls moving up to his copper properties on Volcanic mountain
for the purpose,of prosecuting development work there all summer; already
he has many tons of pay ore on the
dump ready for shipment.
Word bas reached here today from
Beaverdell, on the West Fork of Kettle
river that the shipping of ore Is being
resumed at the Duncan and Bounty fractions���the ore being hauled to Midway
in wagons for shipment to the Trail
smelter.
Last Saturday morning as young Walter Barren, a lad of about 15 years of
age, was driving the delivery wagon
belonging to Waugh Bros, into the
North Fork river for the purpoee of
watering the horse the animal got beyond its depth and the river carried
horse and wagon down stream; the boy
narowly escaped drowning, being rescued by some citizens: the horse an J
wagon have not yet been heard of.

MEXICAN MINE ON  FIRE.
Many Dead and Others in Great Danger
���Caused by Cigar.
Mexico City May 13.���A fire supposed .
to have been started by a cigar thrown
into an abandoned drift caused the loss
of 90 lives according to a special received from Torreon, Coahutla, by the
Associate Press. The flre started tn
the corner shaft of the mines ln Velar-
teena, State of Durango, on Friday
night. There were 1*75 men working ln
that part of the mine and only 17 of
them are believed to have escaped. Thirty-five bodies have been recovered. According to the latest reports the flre ls
still raging and lt la feared that very
tew others imprisoned will be taken out
alive. Search parties have been working heroically but only charred, unrecognizable bodies have been taken out The
shaft ln which the flre broke out ls one
of a mine which ls a group ot the largest copper producers In northern Mexico. The Guggenheim Interests are said
to own the property. Owing to the remoteness of the region it is difficult to
get details.

NATIONAL   LEADERSHIP.
A highly rignlflont remark was made
by ooe of the sj/eakers in Lbe di
the  University Club mw*lt*_  Saturday
nigbt on tne subject of federation tendencies in the Empire.
The University Club's membership includes several who an or have been
Lboroughgoing adherents of one or
other iwlitical party in Canada, or In
Britain, or in both. But, although political subjects are often discussed, the
debates have never been marred by a
display yf partisan  spirit.
The remark in quest:o.i nu oot made
in bitterness, nor on a reproach to any
individual, or to etfhet party exclusively. It was to the effect thai the leaders
of both parties. Dominion an', pruvin-
cial. bave to a great degr��fl ceased to
be leaders of national thought and aspiration.
There was a time, as it was pointed
out, and not longer than fifteen or
twenty years ago, when the el t *���* l
far different, when not only cabine:
ministers and the front bench of the opposition, but members of the rank mm
file of both parties, were familiar with,
and interested in. national aiid Imperial
questions, and when members of parliament did not disdain to take part in discussion of such subjects in their o��n
cities, towns or villages. Even a party
meeting in the heat of an election OH***
paign was capable of developing a d<
bate on matters of national importance
How far. and in what direction we
have travelled since then must b" 'Ay
vious to all. Local party organizations
meet now only to choose candidates and
award patronage, members of parliament���even the few who have any
knowledge of public questions���have
neither time nor disposition to meet
their constituents in debate. Party discipline forbids tbelr being committed to
tt]    lac      -' l - ���   '-he   accepted   party
������:.. and questions of organization
and pa:rouage take up all their time.
Even in parliament aod the laaftMat-
tures it is very rare that the discussion
of any subjects rises above the horizon
of party politics, or reveals any point of
view higher than party advantage
flmarto-aa that were once regarded as
the concern of statesmen and iegisiators
are now contempfcoousjy relegated as
".academic" to the Empire Clubs zz-i
Canadian Clubs, formed not to adwpttfe
any definite poBriea, bat merely to af-
Cord their members that opportunity tot
omt aiscussion on worthy subjects.
once, but no longer, offered by national
politics
The root of this as of all othar erof the Canadian body pcUtfc lies deep in
the changed nature of the people. Tte
rapid BBttartal itrrrrlniiniCMl of the country has blunted the intellect as well as
the conscience of the people. An exag-
ted value has been placed upon
smoothness of administration. Servili'y
to the party whip is considered :*.���
meril of a private member. Any statesmanlike ideas he might have would be
D I *��� ly a nuisance to his leaders.
The best that can be hoped is that
the maintenance of interest in subjects
ot real importance by the academic dis-
r. of them in unrepresentative
bodies may force upon the electorate's
o the decline Jn the character
and caJibre of pibiic men, and ���-
appearance from *he OcHV of parliament
of anything resembling leadership.

TO PREVENTCONTAQ10N
8lmpl�� R_|eB ,or Coniumptives Drawn
Up by Canadian Airti-Tubei-cu-
loais Society.
The following polntis and suggestlonB
niKunlliig the prevention of eonBump-
tlon which deserve the attention of
everyhody, are gathered from a recent
iirllcln by Ur. Knopf, of New York, In
the Medical Record:
There ure more cuhcb of advanced tu-
beroillosis to ho treated than any other
illKeaue.
Then. Ih no dlsenae where ko much
cun Imi done to render the patient coin-
forluhle and hopeful uh pulmonary tu-
iH-rciiloiiii! ln tlle advanced Htuge.
There Ih no dlBcuac where one case In
u family cun bo readily become the
cauHe of Infection ln other mcniherB, particularly In the Bluge where the con-
Hiimptlvo begins to be confined to tho
close uHHocluiiisn of the fnmlly in-,mber8
only.
It ls extremely lmportunt to remember that advanced consumptive putlents
who are able lo go about, perhaps able
to work at their ordinary calling, ln the
office or factory, when ignorant or careless, constitute the greatest danger to
the health of the community. They muBt
be considered as the most frequent
cause of Infection. The careless, ignorant, or helplesB consumptive, when confined to bed, can do little more than Infect his room; but the advanced patient
uble to follow his calling, can, lf he is
careless, scatter 7,000,000 bacill every
day with the greatest ease.
Of all tuberculosis patients, he
should be the most carefully Instructed,
and should tie most deeply impressed
with the facl, that carelessness in the
dispoHal of the sputum is dangerous to
himself as well us to his neighbors.
Ab yet, people generally, have not
been educated up to the point at which
they are willing to curry and use, a
pocket lluHk or cardbourd purse. Mi-Inn
deBlroua to conceal their condition,
Ihey aro extremely reluctant to do anything which would call attention to their
Infirmity. Some way less likely to cause
remark mtiBt be found. Probably the
beBt that can be done ln the meantime
Is to Biiggest that tuberculous men
have two pockets lined with some material which can he easily cleansed, and
that they should carry In one of these
IHickets, very cheap hundkerchiefs, or
bits of cheese cloth, or other cheap material cut like handkerchiefs, which
when used can be easily put into the
other pocket, and there kept until the
close of the day, when they can be
easily destroyed or Bterllized by boiling,
nfter their return home. In this way
they can escape observation, and at the
same time secure their fellow-workmen
with whom they are associated, against
danger. When so simple a precaution
as this, and one easily In reach of every
right thinking man, Is available, not to
make use of it, would seem little less
than criminal neglect.

According to some newspapers, advertising ls the panacea of all business Ills.
It can even resurrect the dying liualness
of the custom tailor, according to an
article recently republished In the Montreal Gazette. This article was taken
(rom a tailors' trade paper, and was one
of a series following up the attempt to
kill Semi-ready tailoring by "Confidential Circular, No. 1."
It ls claimed by the press that advertising may be credited with the success
achieved by Semi-ready tailoring, but
the president of the Semi-ready com-
panys says he believes that they could
very well do without any advertising.

BY-LAW No. 177
Somebody   Mistaken.
T. G. Procter, A. M. Johnson anil J. C.
Gordon returned to the city yeBterday
afternoon from a day's fishing at Procter. Mr. Procter was currying a splendid
specimen of the Great Lake trout, whicli
weighed 14 1-2 pounds dressed. He and
his companions stated thnt lt was
caught after a very Interesting struggle,
off the Procter light.
A government official of unimpeachable veracity was on the steamer by
which Messrs. Procter, Johnson and
Gordon returned. He saw them joard
the Btenmer at Procter and is certain
that they had no fish. When the Nelson
wharf wns reached the three gentlemen
flrst mentioned preceded the govern
ment official up the wharf. The latter
saw thc captaht of a tug hail Mr. Procter, who stepped on board. When he
next appeared he waB carrying the big
fish.
The slorles Beem to conflict. But no
one would dream of questioning the
truthfulness of any of the authorities.
The obvious explanation Is that the
government official hnd temporarily lost
his spectacles and found them again
just as Mr. Procter reappeared with
the fish.
