Tho Interest or milling men In Kootenay duriug the past week has to a large
extent been transferred from the actual
fields of operation to the law courts
at Victoria where the lateral right's
ease ol Star vs. White Is being tried.
The details or the conflicting contentions, with the exception or the results
of the work lately done under the supervision or \V. E. Zwickey, are familiar to all. but the Judgment will be
awaited with keen Interesi.
ln the various camps of the district
work has been going on steadily, though
hamiiered in many cases, us usual at
thiB season of the year, by the bad condition of the roads after the disappearance of the Bnow.
The most Important event of the
week has been the sale of the Mother
1/sssl,- and Golden Hell mines ln Sheep
Creek valley to an Idaho syndicate,
which will operate on a large scale during the present seusou.
There are rumors or negotiations
under way that may lead to important
iraiisfers around Ymir, at Alnsworth
and In thc Lardeau.
The stock market Tor the past week
has again shown a slight improvemeut
locally and in SjKtkane, the shareB being more active and more interest being manifested. Eastern exchanges, on
the other hand, report a falling oft und
weakness in the Cobalt stocks.
Alberta Coal A Coke maintained its
price well and remained Arm throughout, but with but few shares offered.
International Coal, which company's
shares are widely scattered, became
weaker with each day's tradings, and
sold as low as 52 t. to 53 cents. More
of this stock is now on the market
than has been for a long time, and until! a settlement of the labor trouble has
been arrived at, It Is hardly possible
thut there will be any advance. Western Oil was In better demand, with a
probability of higher prices in lhe near
Consolidated srucllers show but little
change and are very weak. Bhould
this stock continue to drop, present
sellers will become buyers, and an advance will then be expectod.
White Wear and Giant of Rossland
were both offered freely and dropped a
|wlnt or two in consequence. Ratnber-
Cariboo was Inactive and remained unchanged. II. 0. and Dominion Copper
showed but little change, but nt the
same time were-probably the most ac-
llvo Blocks dealt ln.

Lord's Day Alliance Still
Rev. Wm. Rochester Makes Statement ior Publication��� Pleads
ior Trial ior Law.
No further Intimation of policy hat.
been made by the government and no
prosecutions have taken place under the
act In this province. In the other prov.
lnces, Quebec excepted, the act Is fully
recognized, and Is being energetically
enforced. Writing arter the act had
been in rorce less than two weeks, Mr.
Shearer said that 50,000 copleB or American Sunday papers hud already been
put out or circulation. He rurther
stated that there waB a general disposition to comply v.ith the law on the part
of employers ol labor. The express
companies and ihe railway news agencies had agreed to observe the law.
The attorney general of Alberta has
sent a letter of instruction to every N.
W. M. P. station and every constable In
the province that every caBe tit violation ol the statute or which notice Is
given him and or which particulars are
rurnlshed will receive his Immediate attention; that he expects them to take
all necessary steps to prevent Infringe-
ment of the law, hut wherever prosecution should become necessary, he
essoins upon their fidelity to duty to at
once rejiort the same. Theae instructions are or special Interest trom the
ract that parts of the province adjoining
British Columbin have the same Industrial InterestB.
So rar as this province is concerned,
there has been u general arousing or attention to the question, and those in
tavor or and those against the act have
been active.
There has been circulated a petition
In the name or religious liberty praying
the legislature not to pass any bill con-
ierning Sunday or the Lord's Day, or
any other religious rite, ceremony or
observance, "whicli would interfere
with the rights or religious freedom of
any of His Majesty's subjects."
Whilst thc Lord's Day Alliance has
not been a party to this petition, the
prayer of the petition is nevertheless
In harmony with the attitude of the alliance, expressed in its statement laid
before the executive council with respect to provincial legislation, and ia
not against the Dominion Lord's Day
Act, because, not even by the most extravagant Interpretation-can this law be
shown to require any religious observance or to Interfere In any degree
with religious liberty.
Another petition hns been circulated,
addressed to the attorney general, asking that ln the best Interests ol British
Columbia effect be not given to the act
in thls.province. Of course. It is a matter or opinion what nre the best Interests ol British Columbia and how they
would be affected by this act. Those
who express an opinion ln this particular should be familiar both with Iho act
in question and the industrial Interests
or the province. As to the latter It Is
well to bear in mind that the committee of parliament having In charge this
bill most exhaustively considered all the
Industrial Interests ol every part or tho
Dominion. Aa to the former, ir the expression or views ut public meetings
und in correspondence lo the preBS ure
a guide, there are ninny whose fnnill-
Inrlly with the law Is not such as to
lend much weight lo their opinion.
A very strong ondonvor has been
made by the initio owners of Bast und
West Kooteuny and Southern Vale to
Becurc thc non-enforcement of tho law
so far as their Industries are concerned.
It must not be overlooked that there
are special conditions Incidental to
these Industries which demand consideration. This will bo admitted by all.
The Lord's Day Alliance has always
freely admitted It, nnd haB been responsible for framing tho clause In the act
permitting necessary work In the mines
und smelter*, But It Is possible that,
on lhe other hand, too much mny be
mnde of this. No one should exact of
tho mlno owners moro than Is demand-
od of other business men In relation to
their business. Yet nt the sume time,
after the conditions or necessity and
"speclnl clrcunistnncos" Jiave been mot,
why should tbe mine owner have a liberty accorded hlm nol permitted other
classes of business in the province? The
fears expressed by these men ot Injury
to their industries, or financial loss, of
the emigration ol their men to theh
United States, may all prove groundless. These matters were all considered in parliament. The clauses permitting necessary work were approved by
tbc manufacturers and producers or
minerals, metals and electric power,
represented at the sessions of the committee In charge of the bill. ThiB act
was not designed by parliament to be
Inimical to the prosperity or any class.
Why not wait? Give the act a fair
trial; let lt be administered considerately, aud ir hardship is wrought surely
un amendment can be secured when
the time comes and the case ls fully
Mines huve been, and aro now,
worked upon the six days' labor plan
nnd are industrially successful. The
president or the AsBocluted Hoard of
Trade, Kootenay and Yale, himself a
large employer of labor and familiar
wllh all conditions In British Columbia,
said at Greenwood that the act was
good, and would work for the general
good, and Bhould be given a fair tlial.
Mr. Rochester further stated that the
alliance had circulated petitions for signatures throughout the province, and
these had been presented to the premier. These asked that the attorney
general do not withhold his consent to
prosecute tinder the act The number
or names to these was smaller than
otherwise would have boen the case owing to their being called tor early, and
to Ihe fact that. In the judgment of the
alliance and Its supports, to petition
wus not logical, -and ln a sense discourteous. In view of th-ir statement to the
government, but was undertaken simply to give the attorney genera] and the
cabinet an estimate of public opinion
respecting the act For Instance, this
letter was received:
"I am too indignant to sign or get
signed a petition to the attorney general of British Columbia. Why does not
the attorney general do his duty? . . .
The Dominion government has the
right to make Sabbath laws, and any
province, if It has any self-reBpect, will
fall fn and obey." Yet the petitions
carry over 4,000 names, the majority of
these being Influential citizens���an expression of public sentiment that must
be eminently satisfactory to every
thoughtful mind.
The alliance upon the question of one
application of the law to Brltlah Columbia, stands upon Us statement to the
government that provincial legislation
would be Inconsiderate, and that the
obligation of the attorney general Is to
give consent to prosecutions.
The Bltuation should be clearly considered. Without this Dominion Lord's
Day Act we are practically deprived of
legal protection for our rest day. This
law has been secured after a long period of discussion, litigation and consequent uncertainty. It is the verdict of
the people by parliament alter one of
the greatest struggles In the history of
Dominion legislation. Even the press
of this province, claiming consideration, had its case presented early In the
proceedings of the committee of the
House. The authority of the statute is
unquestioned. It is now law. Let lt
be given a fair trial. Its enforcement
being sought with consideration for the
rights of every interest, and yet with
regard to the general well-being; and
If the law is not what it ought to be.
the doors are not closed to those
changes that riper experience may suggest.
The above Is the text of an Interview
given by Rev. W. M. Rochester, western
secretary of the Lord's Day Alliance, to
the Victoria Times. It was sent to .the
editor of The Dally Canadian by Mr.
Rochester with a request for Its publication.���Editor.
Points of Order Raised
by Laurier
London  Press Comments on Slowness
of Procedure and Melodramatic
Features of Its Conduct.
London, April 13.���The time consumed
ln the trial of Harry K. Thaw for the
murder of Stanford White, compared to
the rapidity and exactness of English
Justice aB illustrated In the case of Ray-
nor, the murderer of William Whitely,
In which the court confined the lawyers
and witnesses to actual facta connected
with the crime, and comparisons betwen American methods which are considered to be melodramatic in the extreme, and what is alleged to be the
"more dignified procedure of the English bar" form the basis of the comment in Ihe newspapers this morning.
Ail the papers publish long editorial
articles on the Thaw ease and most of
them review the various stages of thc
New York, April 13.���Although bitterly disappointed over the mistrial, especially since he believed up to the last
minute that he would be acquitted,
Harry K. Thaw Ib bearing bravely. Indeed his composure Is on a par with the
remarkable go-Hi spirits he showed during much ol his protracted trial, nnd
the wearisome hours before the jury
gnve up Ub taBk. So sanguine of freedom was he that shortly before the jury
came for the lost time Into the court
room he wrapped up a large number of
letters and papers which he meant to
take with him rrom hla cell.
Callous Indifference oi Government
to Public Opinion���Prevent all
EiforU at Exposure.
Ottawa, April 13.���The use by the
government of points of order on purely
technical grounds to prevent or defeat
attempts to investigate charges against
ministers and members, have been
something ot a shock to old parliamentarians.
Tbe utter servility ol the parliamentary majority in sustaining Such a campaign ls considered the worst development of the session.
Mr. BourasBa's motion for a committee of Inquiry into the "women, wine
and graft" scandals was voted down by
a straight government majority on the
ground that lt would be an inquisition,
without definite charges. On Wednesday of this week Mr. Bourassa started
in by another road. He proposed a
resolution that as Mr. Fowler bad made
certain Intimations affecting the honor
of certain ministers and members he
should be Invited to either make good
or retract them or be subject to the
censure of the house. Mr. Bourassa had
hardly read hia resolution and began
his speech when the speaker Interposed
with the remark that the motion was
out of order as dealing with a matter
of past debate, lt was seen at once
that the speaker had the premier's
eager support Mr. Bourassa pleaded
that he was bringing up an entirely
new question, even though the subject
matter was old. Last week he asked
for a committee, this week he asked tor
definite charges or withdrawal. -Mr.
Foster and Dr. Sproule supported Mr.
Bourassa's argument that the rule did
not apply and argued that this was not
a Ume for too great strictness ln ruling
out such questions. Mr. Borden appealed to the house and the speaker
that the broadest interpretation should
be given to the power of parliament to
deal with questions affecting the honor
of Its own members. He deplored any
action that would shut out an Inquiry
In which the house was so deeply concerned and which the country was
watching with great anxiety.
The Speaker seemed to be willing to
relax hie ruling if the House generally
should demand lt, but Sir Wilfrid became a stickler for the rules. He satd
he felt it his duty as the leader of the
House to support the Speaker's decision though at that time there had
been no final decision, but only an
opinion. Incidentally the premier allowed the cat to emerge from the bag
by stating that the House would have
no "Inquisitions." Mr. Bourassa protested that he was now asking not for
Inquisition but for formal charges or
withdrawal. Finally lt came to an appeal from the ruling of the Speaker
which was sustained by a majority of
fifty-seven. Sir Wilfrid and all his followers voted to shut out the discussion.
Mr. Borden and the whole opposition.
except five members, voted against the
ruling and ln favor of going on with the
debate. Even those five supported the
ruling rather because they did not wish
to condemn the Speaker than from a
desire to block the enquiry.
Still the government, backed by Its
majority keeps dark the names of tlie
North Atlantic Trading company, to
whom more than a third of a million of
Canadian money has been paid for Immigrants, who would have come just ns
fast without the contract. The minister ot
the Interior declared that the company
had not kept faith with Canada. Hut
when the auditor-general refused to
authorize the last payment until the
company should be shown to have made
the expenditure required, Mr. Oliver
sent an officer to Europe who reported
In favor of the company. This officer,
Instructed by his superiors, refused to
give tho names of the contractors or
their agents or even of the firms which
did their printing. He was supported
In refusal by the majority of the committee, whereupon Mr. Monk carried
the case te the house of commons and
moved that the officer be brought to the
Bar and compelled to disclose.
Mr. Monk made a very strong speech
In support of the publicity.
Mr. Oliver replied that the officer
when In Europe had pledged himself to
secrecy and lho promise must be kept.
Dr. Sproule. Mr. Bergeron, Mr. Foster,
Mr. Henderson Mr. Northrup, Mr. Ben;
nett and Mr. Barker, conservatives, with
Mr. Lavergne nnd Mr. Itobltallle, Liberals, protested against this mysterious
and auspicious secrecy. They showed
that In the house of commons, govern-'
ment members had practically entered
into a conspiracy to prevent Investigation Into all the suspicious dealings and
transactions. In tbe public accounts
committee, as Mr. Barker declared emphatically, ministerial members simply
work with the .deliberate object of
blocking Inquiry where that Is possible.
Dr. Sproule, Mr. Foster and others
showed how neatly thc chairman responded to their request by ruling out
awkward evidence.
Dr. sproule was called to order for
stating lhal the chairman's ruling was
a disgrace to parliament, though thc
statcmont was applauded.
Mr. Bergeron compared these suppressions with the conduct uf Sir John
Thomson when he compelled the witnesses in the McUreevy case to produce
all the evidence they had even from
tholr own books.
The member from Beauharuols declared tbat the North Atlantis Trading
company was a swindle Irom beginning
to end and that every man In the House
was convinced that Mr. Preston and
some of bli friends were the contracting company. The deputy minister who
made the contract resigned to join the
cumpany, having changed the bargain
lo the company's advantage after he
had made his new agreement Mr.
Northup showed tbat the secrecy wis
quite in keeping with the attempts to
suppress Information with regard to the
marine and fishery rake-off. Other
speakers showed that similar attempts
were made to keep in tbe dark the details or the Halifax and Moncton land
From the Liberal side Mr. Lavergne
showed that Oliver himself as a private
member condemned the policy which
he was now compelled to Indorse. Mr.
Bourassa asserted; " The whole of this
transaction from beginning to end had
an odor of conspiracy, which ls most obnoxious to me as a Liberal member and
us a representative of a free people."
He asserted broadly that the conspiracy
or secret was due to the Immorality of
the contract. Either lt was made with
men in connection with the government
who dare not appear or else It was a
wilful violation of the law of the -countries where it was operated.
Finally Mr. Robltallle, the young Liberal member for Quebec - county, protested In thejiame of Liberalism against
the contemptible concealment of facts
respecting public business. " It would
seem," be Bald, "that whenever anybody
wanted to business with the government Instead of doing lt directly they,
had to form a dummy company.'* If
the affair was honest why not tell the
truth about lt? The conduct of the
government caused a suspicion of crookedness which would not be easily allayed.   Such waa his argument.
But the government had no Idea of
allowing these transactions to come to
light In spite of open protest of theae
Liberals'and doubtless the private complaints of some others, the machine
majority was called In to vote down
the motion and continue the conspiracy
of concealment. The vote waa ninety-
nine to fifty, every Conservative and
three Liberals voting for publicity.
Fruit Grower* of British Columbia-Wil'
Meet to Confer for Mutual
The meeting of the Kootenay Fruit
Growers' Association thia afternoon coo
vened too late and progressed too slow
ly to permit ot a full report of lta pro
ceedlnga ln The Pally Canadian.
James Johnstone Introduced an
amendment to the by-laws on a motion
to adopt a list of amendments, to en
able all members of the association to
become members alao of the provincial
crganization, through which co-opera
tton In marketing products may be ob
tained. A conference for that purpose
ts to be held on April 29 and 30th.
The question of the scarcity of labor,
referred to the association by the board
ot trade, on an Inquiry Instituted by the
Victoria board of trade, ls one of very
great Importance. Mining, lumbering
and agriculture were all seriously hampered last year by lack ot laborers, and
the prospects for this year In that re
spect are still worse.
The meeting was not called to order
till nearly.2:30. Those present were:
C. W. Busk, In the chair, James John
stone, D. C. McMorris, S. S. Fraser, H
H. Sewell, C. C. Bourke, C. W. Bourke
J. W. Ford, J. Hyslop, C. Woodward.
T. M. Sturgess, E. Applewhalte, J
Wcod-Taylor, H. Williams, J. Williams.
J. J. Campbell, T. Morley, O. Hallet and
others, ln all about 30.
The chairman announced the purpose
of Ihe meeting, to receive the report ol
the committee on revision of the by
luws. The amendments recommended
were then read. They included a change
In the date of the annual meeting from
January to November, fixing the number for a quorum, specifying the duties
of directors and officers, and similar
James Johnstone then moved thai a
fee ot $1 per member be collected to
qualify all for membership In the pro
vtnclal fruit grower's association. He
said., that In addition to the benefit ol
cheaper supplies to all, auch a step
would enable the provincial association
to arrange for co-operation tn the dls
Irlbutlon of their products. If such could
ba agreed upon by the conference ot
delegates from all local associations to
be held during the laat week In April
J. J. Campbell asked If an extra levy
rould legally be made upon the mem
bers of a point stock comnany. No one
could answer, and Mr. Campbell suggested that the whole necessary
amount could be paid by the directors
out of the funds of the association.
The meeting ls still ln progress as
The Dally Canadian goes to press.
Debate oa Budget Over aid Progress
Being Hide With Estimates-
East Kootenay Titles.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Victoria, April 13.���Yesterday's session of tbe legislature waa uneventful.
The debate on the budget was concluded and tbe house went Into committee
of supply.
J. A. Macdonald brought In his
amendment, ot which he gave notlco a
week ago, expressing regret that th*
government had not given the city of
Rossland a "fair share" of the proceeds
of the two per cent, mineral tax from
mines within the city limits. He tried
to make out that the circumstances of
Rossland were altogether exceptional.
Hawthornthwaite remarked that any
such claim on such proceeds made on
behalf of Rossland might be made with
equal Justice and propriety on behalf
of many other -cities and towna, especially Nanaimo and Fernie.
Mr. Tatlow replied that the government had already (Iven $2,500 to Rosa-
land aa a special tavor, to which it had
no valid right The city gave no added
value to the mines; on the -contrary all
itts wealth waa derived from them. The
amendment waa defeated,
Ur. Tatlow promised an early an-
nomeeneat tm the auhjeat ot the enforcement of the Lord's Day Act. He
also promised ah amendment In committee to the bill to amend titles to ooal
and oil landa ln South East Kootenay.
Today's session will probably be da-
voted to passing the estimates.

It ls hy a strange political freak lhat
the chief ground of controversy in this
year's session of the provincial legislature has been the bill to provide endowment by land grant for a provincial
university. 1,'usally��� it might be said
Invariably but for this session's record���the establishment and endowment
of a university are matters in whicli the
general public takes Ut tio Interesi, and
they are left in the hands of a few.
So lt was expecled to be in Hritish
Columbia. The advocates or university
establishment spent three years In cam
isafgning to induce the government lo
lake action. Having succeeded In lhat
no further diflicultles weie anticipated
The Endowment bill was (Implicit)
Itself. It has already been publishes! in
The Daily Canadian, li provided for
an endowment of two million acres of
public land, the character and loealion
of which were not specified. All the
revenues from such land were to go to
the endowment fund. The purposes for
which such funds might he used were
also defined.
Two million, acres is a little more
than 11,000 square miles. The area of
the province is about oSO.000 square
miles. The grant, therefore, equals less
than 1-125 of the land of the province,
about one-fourth as much as is usually
net aside in newly organized countries
for tbat purpose.
To those interested in the bill, when
notice of Its introduction was given
there seemed no ground for complaint,
except possibly that the grant might lr
future be found inadequate.
But the leader of the Liberal opposl
tion has contested the hill at every
stage and on every clause on grounds
which must sorely   try  the  faith and
loyalty of many of his supporters.
First he wanted the university es*
tablished before any grant was made
One might as rationally refuse to make,
or think of, provision for a home until
he has a wife and family.
Then he wanted each acre of the
2,000,000 specified In the bill, a request
which neither requires nor admits of
liny comment.
Next he feared that the grant was ex
cessive, and moved that no revenues
rrom coal, minerals or timber should go
with the land. He also urged that care
be laken not to Include In the lands to
be reserved any of the best agricultural
The nominal value of second-class
land In the province at present Is $2.50
an acre. sMominally the grant Is worth
$5,000,000, surely not an excessive sum
for the building and maintenance of a
modern university. But there will he
no demand for some of the land for
years to come. Its present value is en
tlrely problematical.
And Mr. Macdonald fears that too
much is being given!
The only language we know that
really meets the necessity of the case,
Is Buskin's comment on an amateur's
art criticism: "Such criticism commands our respect���the respect due to
honest,   helpless,  hopeless   Imbecility."
The policy of suppression so steadily
folowed by lhe government at Ottawa
bs trays a callousness to public opinion
which Is only explained by the ease
with which the machine has been able
to corrupt Ihe constituencies. A par
llamentary committee appointed to in
ves!gate a charge or public wrong doing Is In reality a court or law, and
Its members are In the position ol
judges. Yet during the present session
In a score of instances the minister In
charge of such committees has moved
that certain witnesses asked for he not
called, or, having been called, lhat.
they need not answer certain question
or produce certain documents. In every
case the motion has heen sustained by
the brute majority. In the House itself
Sir Wilfrid Laurier has raised points of
order, on contemptibly technical
grounds, to prevent even discussion of
charges of wrong doing. Sir Wilfrid ls
probably entitled to treat the House of
Commons with contempt. No one
knows the character of Its majority better than he. Whether he can also af
ford to flout the country la a matter
for   the   serious   consideration   of   the
electors of Canada.
In the news columns today Is pub
llshed a long statement by Hev. W. M.
Rochester urging the enforcement ot
the Lord's Day Act lu llrlllsh Columbia,
Elsewhere appears (he statement that
Acting Premier Tatlow has promised an
early announcement on the subject by
the government. We believe that our
readers generally are weary ot the sub-
ject. So are we. We cannot see that
Mr. RochOBter has In any way strength

Chicago, ApriP 13.���An Increase of
wages aggregating $1,500,000 a year
was today granted the firemen and en-
glnemen on 31 railroad systems running
west of Chicago. The new wage schedule is effective from April 1, and brings
to a close the negotiations which have
XD��e_} In progress for several weeks.
Approximately J5,000 men are benfited
by the advance. In ttdtJitfpn fo the wage
increase, which averages 10 per conl..
the firemen In the switching yards and
on construction trains have secured a
reduction of two hours a day lu their
working time. ThiB reduction in hours
means an advance of from 17 to 20 per
cent, over the rates of pay In force
Jan. 1.
By the terms of the agreement firemen on all classes of engines, in
through and irregular freight, local
freight and mixed train service are
given an increase of 25 cents a day except those running on ��12 1-2 mile an
hour basts. Ten hours or less, 100
miles or less, is to constitute a day's
In the passenger service the firemen
on all engines having cylinders under
IS inches in diameter are to be paid
$2.25 per day for running 100 miles or
less, and those on engines with cylinders over 18 inches are to receive a
minimum of $2.50 a day. Those now receiving the latter are advanced 15 cents
a day. Firemen in all first-class yards
are to to be paid a minimum of $2.25
a day for 10 hours or less, overtime pro
rata. In all other yards the rate will
be $2.15 a day with the same rate for
overtime. Where there the firemen's
organization controls the engineers In
the switching service the wages of the
engineers in flrat-class yards are
placed at $3,75 a day for 10 hours, and
in all other yards $3.50 a day. Overtime is allowed pro rata. The firemen
are relieved of all cleaning of engines.
Some of the railways bad effected a
settleemnt with their flremen before
the recent negotiations were opened
and they are not included in the general
settlement. On the Northwestern the
flremen are working under an agreement which does not expire for a year,
and they did not take any part in the

was at ones- discovered that the cottage
occupied by Harry Gibson, ou Victoria
street between Stanley and Ward, was
on tire. The brigade responded at once,

house was wotul ull through and if it
had not been for the good work done
by the brigade would have been cotn-

how the flre originated, but it seems to
have started near the place where the
stove pipe entered the chimney. The
loss will probably be fully covered by
insurance. The building was one of the
