live freight cars In the water, are the
first resulta of the rapid rise during the
night of Deer Creek, near Harmcre

About 4; 25 o'clock this morning a
freight train eastbound, entered on the

second pier when 11 suddenly gave way
llefore engineer, fireman or brakeman
on the front part of the train could real

Jerome  Attacks  Evelyn  Thaw's Story
of the Statements that Drove Her
Husband Mad.
New York, March 13.���James Clinch
8mlth, Stanford While's brother-in-law,
una called again as a witness in the
Thaw trial this morning. Mr. Smith
was tardy In arriving and Mr. Jerome
summoned Abe liummell tu the stand.
Iliniiin.il had hardly taken his seat
when Smith put ln his appearance
liummell had answered two questions
by the district attorney. He said he
knew Evelyn Nesbitt Thaw and saw
her ln tbe offlce on Oct. 27,190,*), following her return from Europe.
Mr. Smith was questioned by Mr.
Delmas fur the defence, having been
recalled to testify ae to the cablegram
he receleved frum the district attorney-
early ln February, summoning him to
return to this country.
New York, March 13���At last the
end of the Thaw case seems to be In
sight. The prosecution hns practically
finished Its rebuttal with the exception
of Its experts, and District Attorney
Jerome will have examined all of his
witnesses except three or more alienists who will be called to show by their
answers to a hypothetical question that,
lu their opinion. Harry K. Thaw was
sane when he shot Stanford White.
This morning Mr. Jerome will call Abra
ham liummell and his clerk, Snicker,
In an attemtp to secure the admission
In evidence of a copy or the affidavit
making charges against Thaw, whifli
Evelyn Nesbitt Thaw says she was
tricked Into signing.
The court has repeatedly ruled Hint
no evidence tuny he Introduced lo show
the stury she told her husband was
not true.
Mr. Delmas, who In the ourly days
of Ihe trial, stated ln open court that
the defense would not take advantage
of that nils*, but would allow the district attorney* to go as far as hi- liked
Into the truth or falsity of Ihe story,
has. sine Mr. Jerome began offering
evidence iu rebuttal. Invoked the rule,
nnd yesterday when Mr. Jerome demanded that he stand by his waiver
and offered lo prove lhat Wlille was not
where Evelvn Thaw snys he was on
lhe night of the alleged criminal ns
sault, Delmas made no reply further
Ihan to Invoke the rule of law which
shut out  the offered evidence.
Lasl night Mr. Jerome did not know
of any other wltnosses lu he called today, Mav Mackenzie, Evelyn Nesbitt

Mr. Delmas and Mr. Jerome may agree
upon the exact language of the hypo
Ihetlcul questions whicli Mr. Jerome
will read to his first export on lliurs-
Mr. Jerome spoke for more than nn
hour today In contending that Hum
men's testimony Is ihe most vital In
tho case. "It would show,** he declared,
"that this woman, who was Evelyn Nos*
bltt. swore under lhe solemnity of an
oath that she had been beaten by
Thnw in Paris because she would not
sign papers which lis* had prepared ��'"
which fasely accused White of her

Associated Boards of Trade in Session at Greenwood-Addresses of President
and First Vice-President Record Progress and Improvement.
(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Oreenwood, March 13.���The Ninth
Annual Convention of the Associated
Hoards of Trade of Southeastern British Columbia, opened here this afternoon at 3 o'clock, President G. O. Buchanan presiding.
The address of the president and first
vice-president were as follows:
G.  O.   Buchanan.
President G. O. Buchanan remarked
that 11 was lust six years since the association met ln Greenwood #nd that
In the Interval many prominent members, J. H. Robertson, J. B. McArthur
and T. C. Thompson, and others had
died, and many more had moved to
olher fields.
Generally 1906 had been a good year.
The staple industries, mining, smelting
and lumbering, had suffered many vicissitudes, waste and loss, but the trying years, he believed, were over, the
oountry no longer depended entirely on
supplies of foreign capital but was creating wealth which would be available
for further development.
The condition of the wage-earning
classes, the best criterion, compared
well with that of other countries.
Wages in the district are higher than
anywhere else in Canada, and many Increases had heen made during the year.
In lumbering and agriculture there
is a great scarcity of labor, which hampers both industries, and probably will
do so until the advent of a class of la
boi* not uow available.
Mining and smelting Interests and
lhe country generally have suffered lost;
from strikes, notably the strike in the
Crow's Nest Pass coal fields.
Mr. Buchanan referred to the arrival
of 3,000 Sikh and Punjabi laborers, but
said that their adaptability to British
Columbian conditions was still proble
Reference was made to the tempor
ary exclusion of Canadian zinc from
the United States owing to a ruling���
since overruled��� of the secretary of
the treasury. The Frank Zinc smelter
had beeu closed down, and the conditions generally had seemed to justify
un appeal to the Dominion government
for aid by way of a bounty.
President J. R. Robertson, in 1900.
had predicted a Coast-Kootenay railway within two years. Such connection
was. at last in sight with the C. P. R
and G. N. R. both in the field. The
buards now advocate lines from Golden
to the Crow's Nest Pass branch and
from Gerrard to Arrowhead.
He had attended the meeting of the
Dominion Forestry association on be
half of the boards and was pleased to
report that the boards' recommendations had been endorsed by the association.
He recommended that the watersheds
of the Columbia and Kootenay rivers,
of 4.000 feet altitude or more, should
be made a great national game preserve
and protected from rire, from game destruction and alienation except for mln
Ing purposes. Such a reserve would be
n great attraction to tourists and there
fore a most valuable asset.
Reference was made to Enrl Grey's
Investment In Kootenay orchard land
and   lo  the  greatly Increased  orchard
Ihis man's Insanity disappears and the
questions on which the learned experts
for the defence based their decision
disappear. I claim the righl to show
that Evelyn Nesbitt herself has denied
the story she told the Jury."
Annable Buys More Land.
J. E. Annabele returned Inst evening
after a week spent In the'Arrow Lake
district. Ills visit there was In connection with some blocks of fruit land
near Burton City. After enreful lnves
ligation, he found that the lund was
all that It had been represented to be,
nud us a consequence, he purchased
from settlers between Burton City and
Nakusp several blocks, aggregating in
all 3,000 acres. The land is n clay subsoil, quite level and absolutely free
frum stones, but In most cuses covered
with small timber, and admirably
adapted for the cultivation of fruit nnd
vegetables. He was suprlsed to find
so much arable land along the lake
shore. This has been chiefly held by
pre-en'.ptors, who held 320 acres each.
On uccount of the great demand for
land and Ihe steady advance ln prices.

necessary nursery supplies would bo
produced at home.     *>
In all Industries the cost of production fs steadily growing on account of
the scarcity of labor and consequent
high wages.

M. A. 8taH<ey.
First Vlee-Presldent Starkey's address was as follows:
Under the division of duties as between the president and myself provided for at our laat session, I have thc
honor to report upon two or three matters that have arisen during the year.
For the first time, ad far as I know,
in our history, our association and our
president were somelfhat severely
criticized in a speech in the legislature
by a gentleman representing one>uf our
own constituencies. The matter*-was
at that time quite efficiently dealt with
by the press of the province and*I nl
lude to It here only for the purpose of
putting on record a declaration which
will, I believe, b_ endorsed by all who
have in the past attended our meetings:
"That as an association we have been
free from political bias."
"That ln our meetings, all questions
have been considered from the standpoint, of public interest only."
"That all shades of opinion have been
given a fair hearing and due consideration."
We have had frequent occasions te
express ourselves ln opposition to the
actions proposed or acompllshed by
both the federal and the provincial administration, but, we have done so
without political hiss and without any
reference to the effect of our actions
upon any political party.
I may add that ln the matter which
apparently gave rise to the adverse remarks Ih the legislature���that of the
embargo upon the exportation of timber���the justice of our protest was admitted, and upon fuller explanation
and consideration, the objectionable
feature of the measure was eliminated
by the government.
A serious condition of affairs In connection with our fuel supply has developed during the fall and winter
months. The mines of the Crow's Nest
Pass Coal Company were shut down
for two months on account of labor
troubles. The stock of fuel at the smelters and In the towns ran very low and
as yet has not been fully replenished.
As they were unable to depend on a
continuous supply of coal and coke, the
smelters generally curtailed operations
and some of the mines cut down their
output to a minimum, and others shipped ore out of the country. Before any
stocks could be accumulated after the
settlement  of the  strike,    very    cold
Details of Explosion In Toulon Harbor
���Casualty List Will Not Exceed
155��� May be Less.
Toulon, March 13.���Minister of Marine Thomou arrived here today from
Paris. The roll of the battleship lena.
un which the disastrous explosion occurred yesterday, was Immediately
called, 475 men replied to their names.
Those of the crew who are uninjured
are quartered temporarily ln the naval
barracks. Twenty-four officers and engineers arc also reported safe, besides
there are 44 of the crew lying In the
hospitals serlouBly Injured. As the officers and crew numbered 630 It will
thus be seen that 165 arc not accounted for, but the naval authorities consider it most probable that a large number of these have sought refuge with
relatives or friends ln Toulon.
The entire town is in deepest mourning. Crowds are gathered at the arsenal and dock awaiting the announcement of the names of the dead. Hundreds of despatches asking for details
of the disaster have reached naval
headquarters here. Although the belief continues to prevail that the number  of  missing   will   be   reduced,   no
weather overtook us and a good deal ol
suffering and loss resulted. It may be
easily estimated that 'the loss to the dls
trlct represented by this association on
account of this fuel scarcity has
amounted to more than one million
A bill ls now before parliament calculated to avert strikes and lock-outs.
at least until such time as the matters
ln dispute can be investigated and
given publicity, and we certainly hope
that this mild measure will accomplish
its purpose.
An application was read during the
autumn for the exercise of our influence
with the Dominion government ln thc
matter of aid to the zinc industry, on
account of a ruling of the United States
customs, had been materially injured.
Judging the matter to be urgent, F. J.
Deane and W. C. D&lglish were commissioned to proceed tot Ottawa and
present the case of the zinc mining and
smelter men. Mr. Dean has returned
but Mr. Dalglsh remains at Ottawa
awaiting the outcome of the application. The funds for the travilllng ex
penses ot these gentlemen have been
contributed by those of the near interested.
For some time past, the Nelson board
of trade has been conducting an inquiry
into the condition of freight rates. This
is in furtherance of a movement to
lower freight rates tn this section of
the province, which, being high, are increasing the lost of living and hence
o,' labor.
Discrimination Is being alleged In
favor of thc coast and the upper country Is not equitably dealt with ln reference to such points as Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg. Thc underlying
Idea of reform Is to have a mileage bas-
ls more strictly observed ln the various
schedules of freight rates. But, it is.
ln my opinion, of great moment, that
this question which affects the whole
of the districts covered by this convention should not be left to Nelson
alone to fight. The various delegates
may see their way to take up the matter before their local hoards, and in this
way bring a united sentiment to bear
upon the railway commission.
It will be noted that the Cranbrook
board is applying to us for an endorsement of its road and bridge improvements. I may say that Nelson has an
almost equal series of similar extensions, which, however, it is dealing
with directly. It ls also notoriously
true that roads, bridges and trails are
wanted ln every section of the districts
covered by us. So much is this the case
that the aggregate cost of such improvements is likely to far exceed any appropriation the provincial government will
care to make. It Is, therefore, my
opinion that It would be well to appoint
a committee of this convention dealing
with roads and bridges, which shall confer with thc delegates of each board,
and from among the various Improvements recommended select those of
most pressing Importance, up to an appropriation which is likely to be obtained. In this way, I believe, that
Kootenay and Yale could be launched
upon a comprehensive and Intelligent
scheme of opening up the country. iWth
the weight of the board behind such
recommendations, they would carry-
greater weight with the government,
besides giving the executive a definite
plan to work upon demanded by the
majority of its upper country constituents, than any merely local representation. Of course, roads and bridges
left out of the prpoosed scheme this
year would have the first preference,
conditions remaining the same, next.
more sailors or others have reported
their safety. The minister of marine,
upon his arrival here, consultetd with
the port admiral, after which he proceeded to the scene of the disaster.
All around the Missessey dry docks
were strewn pieces of shells, aud the
store sheds, and other buildings wero
pierced in many places. Cordons of
troops were drawn upon the quayB near
the hulk of the vessel, where relief
parties searched for bodies. Fire hoss-
played all night on the unsubmerged
portions of the battleship, whose Interior has been completely flooded. The
afterpart of the battleship is destroyed.
The officers' cabins are in ruins. One
of the officers, who escaped, said that
Ihe port hules of his cabin were open,
thus permitting the suffocating gases
to escape.
Later���Forty-one of the missing men
turned up. leaving 114 apparently un-
."^counted for or killed. Touching
scenes were witnessed at the gates of
the arsenal.
Borsano Fire Swept.
Milan, March 13.���About 2,000 per
sons were rendered homeless at Borsano today by a Are which destroyed
many houses. The only building left
standing was the church, whose bell
continued to ring for help until tho
last moment, which the peasants con
tidered to be a miracle.
South African Wreck.
Johannesburg,      March      13.���Adam
Jameson, M. D. ex-commission of lands,
was killed with 12 other persons about
midnight In the wreck of a train at
Alkamar, on the Delagoa line, due to
a washout. Eleven persons were injured.
Audience.Panic Stricken by Lightning
Bolt Saved by Comedian.
Chicago, March 13.���A despatch from
Newport, Kentucky, says that between
40 and 50 persons, principally women
and children, in a state of panic when
lightning struck the Grand theatre here
last night, were quieted, and many
saved from death, by the presence of
mind ot a comedian performing on the
stage. As it was, scores of women and
children were crushed under feet.
While the performance was in progress there was a flash and the theatre
was ln darkness. The audience rose
to its feet and made a rush for the
doors; walling women, screaming children and shouting men aroused the
crowd to an excited frensy. In the
midst of the whole panic, Albert A.
Dashington. a comedian, appeared on
the stage with a lighted candle ln hla
hand and began making jokes on
the thunderbolt and subsequent darkness. . His words soon pacified the audience.
Student Kept Bombs.
Karkov, Russia, March 13.���While
the police today were searching tho

ins.   Six other persona were injured-
Honduran and Nlcaraguan Forces Face
Each Other en Frontier���American Steamer Seized.
Porto Courtes, Honduras, March 8,
via New Orleans, March 13.���President
Bonllla, of Honduras, is conducting operations at thc front with the aid of an
automobile. Although hia troops are
two days' march from Tegucigalpa, the
commander is able to reach it ln a fev.-
hours. Tbe strategic positions of the
Honduran and Nlcaraguan armies are
described as follows ln the official -despatches from Tegucigalpa:
The army of Honduras haa taken a
position facing the Nlcaraguan frontier
and ls deployed ln a line including five
principal divisions, each occupying as
Important road. President Bonlla la ln
command of the line at Choluteca,
where he has nearly 6,000 men. Thc
strategic value of Choluteoa lies, in
part, ln the fact that tt Ib within a day's
march of Salvador, and that the army
of Salvador, according to the alliance
between the two countries, is bound to
aid Honduras.
Nicaragua's line of battle has been
pushed paat the frontier Into Hondura't
territory. It has occupied San Marl
cos de Colon, Trlano and Lamaslque
Within the laat two days, however, the
the Nlcaraguan outposts were driven
back from Lamaslque. Both armies
ahve thrown out an advance of 100 to
200 men each, and all the encounters reported up to this time have heen between these bands. The Lamaslque
fight was of this caracter.
Managua. Nicaragua, March 13.���The
American steamer City of Para, having
on board 1,00 rifles, destined for Ama
pla, Honduras, was recently overhauled
by a Nlcaraguan gunboat, which seised
the rifles. The steamer was permitted
to proceed to her destination.
Dr. Fagan Haa Succeeded.
The arrangements tor a sanatorium
for victims of tuberculoscls have at laat
taken definite shape. Dr. Fagan has
been Instructed by the government to
get out plans for the building, which
will probably be erected at Yale. It
has also been decided to build a number of small houses for tuberculosis
patients at Fish Lake, eight milea in
the mountains, south of Kamloops.

Taken All Possible Precautions
to Keep Nelson Free.
A mild scare was caused laat night
by the circulation ot a report that there
were 13 cases of smallpox In Cranbrook. It waa also stated that there
are now 20 cases In Spokane.
Dr. E. C. Arthur, city medical health
ofBoer, seen on the subject today said;
"I have no official information on the
subject and could take no action If I
had. My duty and authority atop at
the city limits. Outside city limits authority ia vested in the provincial board
of health.
"I understand, however, that the
oaaes ln Cranbrook were all promptly
Isolated, and the houses from which
they were taken have been released
from quarantine. Spokane, I am told
haa not been quite tree trom smallpox
tor aeveral yeara. There la alao, I believe, a little at Kamloops, and at several points ln Alberta and Saskatchewan.
"I do not believe in secrecy in such
cases. When there la danger the public
ahould know of lt. If any caae of smallpox develops ln Nelson the press will
be told and there will be no request
for secrecy.
'Preparations have already been
made here, and any case that may be
dtacovered will be promptly isolated
and attended to. There la at preaent
no ground for alarm."
There was a blank docket at the police court today.

If the speech made by Parker Williams in th^ legislature yesterday may
be taken as an Indication of what
course the Socialist members intend to
pursue during the life of the legislature, it Is rather an insignificant jsart.
It waa, of course, to be expected that
some member of the party wdtild take
part in the debate on the address: and
lt niliiht have been expected that he
���Mutld outline the Socialist policy for
the session at least. Hut Mr. Williams
did nothing of the kind, ills declamation against the employment of Pinker-
ton detectives against the Kamloops
train robbers was a poor Joke, or If
serious, extremely childish
But the chief contention In his
speech, that the government cont.'ni-
plates a wrong to the workingmen of
Hritish Columbia in Its proposed ftffortl
to aid employers to secure a sufiieis ni
and satisfactory supply of labor, ls
typical of the worst feature of Sssolal-
ism and indeed of labor unionism
Many Socialists, If not all of them, op-
'*nly rejoice ln the scarcity of lalMir.
nnil the consequent high scale of wages,
which Increases enormously the cost of
production In this province, and also
keeps Ibe cost of living very high.
That fallacy In quite coniprehi-nsllili*
from the character of the alleged economic writlngB that Socialists read.
But there Is another phase of the
question which shows a serious Inconsistency. The cry agulnsl cheap labor
applies not only against Chinese, Japanese and Hindoos, or even to whnt an-
arrogantly called the Inferior races of
Europe,    but ls now openly employed
acainst the unemployed British work-
n.en whom it is proposed to Introduce-
through the agency of the Salvation
The real complaint of the would-be
monopolists of labor Is now revealed.
The cheapness of tbe new labor has
nothing to do with the case. The objection Is to more labor of any kind.
This is an amusing contrast to the
reflation matter of Socialist oratory.
whose favorite stock phrases are equality and brotherhood. The very' basis ol
Socialism, its only excuse for existence
as a political creed is Its supposed aim
to uplift the toilers in every land. Karl
Marx, one of the early German leaders
of the sect used to cry: -Proletarians
of the world, unite:" The Socialist on
the American continent who pretend to
the -same unselfish, if unpracticalble. aspirations have substituted for Karl
Marx' battle-cry:
-Proletarians of other lands, keep
away. Our wages are high. You
mustn't, even if you are starving 111
home, come here to compete with us."
The war ln Central America attracts
strangely little Interest. There are several reasons for such apathy. Civil
wars and Interstate wars have been
chronic In the little republics since
their organization: their foreign trade
and foreign relations generally are very
limited, and their Importance lo the
world at large very little. The despatches so far received have thrown
hardly any light on the grounds for the
quarrel. The one significant fact Is
that the southernmost state, Costa
Rica, which adjoins the Isthmus of
Panama, and Is, therefore, nearer than
others to a point of International Interest, has kept clear of the conflict.
Very well. An Independent paper
says: Now watch Sir Wilfrid hand 11s
extension of our boundaries���right Ise
hind thc ear." Had such a remark
come from nn out-and-out Liberal organ
It might have been charitably ascribed
to tho temporary Indiscretion caused
by rage ami disappointment. As It Is,
II must be accepted as the deliberate
opinion of an Impartial and disinterested observer.
Never before has the provincial legislature got down to the real work of the
session so soon after opening. Including the mover's nnd seconder's there
were but live speeches In tho debate on
the address. The condition It eminently
satisfactory,   promising   as  it   djes.

The Associated Boards of Trade of
Southeastern British Columbia meet today in Greenwood. The a-ssoiiaiion has
���sometimes been called the Parliament
of Kootenay. Though entirely without
executive or legislative powers it has
frequently exercised far-reaching influence on both Dominion and provincial legislation. Its members are
p.eked men representing nearly every
district and every Interest in Kootenay.
So far they have never suffered lhe
political bias of individual members to
affect their deliberations, and. on the
whole, their advice to both governments has been wise and public spirited. It might be well, and would certainly be acceptable to both governments if other sections of Canada were
represented by, and could speak
through, organizations equally lutein-
tent  and authoritative.

Life Ruined  Merely by Aeeutatlon of
Murder���Saved from (follows to
Suffer 40 yeirt  Mliery.
Portlanil, Me., March 13.���Shunned
by society and pointed to -with scorn
by the very children on tbe streets because forty years ago he was accused
of a murder of which he was acquitted
by tbe confession of another on the
very day he was to hang, Luther Ver-
rill, a feeble recluse, 80 years of age,
once rich, died in the poorhouse last
Verrill'a death was the climax to one
of the most remarkable stories in
Main's criminal history.
lt was forty years ago���to be exact
January 19, 1867, that one wintry morn-
roads ling after a great storm that piled
the drifts high in the roads ln a little
house tbat still stands on the West
Auburn road, the neighbors found Uie
mutilated bodies of Mrs. Suaanah Kinsley and "Aunt" Polly Caswell.
Arrest followed arrest. Two or three
men narrowly escaped being enmeshed
In circumstantial evidence. Finally
Clifford 1. Harris, a negro, and Luther
J. Verrill, an Auburn man and wealthy
shoe dealer, were arrested. Harris
confessed and implicated Verrill. Harris asserted he met Verrill on the road
and Verrill told him they could go and
get money. He related the awful details of the crime. They were tried on
June 4th, 1867, and the trial lasted
eight days. County Attorney E. O.
Bicynell and William P. Frye, then attorney general, were the prosecuting attorneys. The prisoner waa declared
guilty of murder ln the first degree.
Verrill was sentenced to be hanged.
The chaplain was ln Verrill'a cell giving him the last words of spiritual comfort, and the gallowB were being prepared when Harris, the negro, overcome
by remorse, confessed that he alone
murdered the two women.
Verrill, though a free man, never recovered from the blow, he had lost all
his money, and had no heart for business and made a poor living doing odd
jobs. He shunned social intercourse,
and to his last day lived as much like
a hermit as was possible for a man who
had to have some business relations
with his fellow men.
