Stealing    of    Regalia    and   Attempt   to
Blow  up  Lord  Ashtown   Still
Unsolved   Mysteries.
I      1
Dublin, March 30.���Ireland may be
said to have two llrst-class mysteries
on hand at the present moment One
Is the celebrated case of the missing
regalia frum Dublin Castle; Uie other is
known as tbe (lleiiabiry outrage. Speaking In tlie house of commons the other
day, Mr. Hlrre.l, the chief secretary for
Ireland, announced that the government
hail nothing to conceal in the CHenahlry
matter, und that if both sides waut a
public enquiry he is willing to oblige
them. As both sides evidently desire a
full Investigation, It Is probable that
one will be held. In that event the
whole- question of Irish lawlessness will
be up for discussion.
Cable despatches at the time gave a
brief account of tbe Glennhlry outrage,
and in this column the matter was discussed more fully, but it la necessary to
briefly review the published facts, on
which there is not disagreement of public opinion, before touching the controversial Issues. To begin with, a bomb
was exploded at Lord Ashtown's shooting lodge, at Clenahlry, County Water-
ford, on August M last. Some slight
damage w-as done, but fortunately nobody was hurt. On Sept. 22 and 23
Lord Asbtown made his claim for compensation to the country. It was contested bitterly, but In the end Judge
Fitzgerald awarded Ixird Ashtown L140
and costs. The Judgment was appealed, but Mr Justice Kenny has Just re-
cetiily confirmed Judge Fitzgerald's decision.
The case was regarded as Important
because it was a fight between Nationalists and anti-Nationalists. Ixird Ashtown has been one of the sloutest of
fighters   against   the   Nationalists,  who.
in disputing tbe claim for compensation,
put Iii testimony designed to show tbat
the sn-called outrage was committed by
Lord AShtown himself, with a view of
inflaming opinion against the Nationalists. It was on this ground that the
case was first Contested nnd later ai>-
pealed, but both Judge Fitzgerald and
Mr. Justice Kenny, a Human Catholic
who was formerly solicitor-general for
Ireland, declared emphatically that this
charge was "���absolutely baseless." The
second decision took the wind out of
the Nationalists' sails, and was a vindication for Lord Ashtown. Hut the latter
is nut satisfied, and In parliament he
has pressed on the government bis demands for an Investigation. Tbe Nationalists have also declared their willingness to make-good their charges,
with the result thai Mr. Hlrre',1 bus half
promised a royal commission.
The most Important witness for the
Nationalists at the trial, the appeal,
and in the Investigation yet to come Is
District Inspector Preston, nf the Royal
Irish Constabulary. At the time of the
outrage he was In Ihe north of Ireland,
hut he was summoned to investigate
Ihe matter. On Sept 7 he made a report
of the ease, which wns forwarded to
ihe authorities at Dublin Castle. It
was deemed of such a startling nature
lhat Preston was summoned before the
undersecretary and the Inspector general for examination, That the report
was Inspired by un earnest desire to
blacken Lord ashtown seems clear, for
the Official had fur exceeded bis duties
In offering opinions and suggestions.
and In inserting alleged facts that did
not   come   under    his    observation.     A
si nd report was made at the Instance
of the undersecretary. In which the
opinions nnd extraneous matter were
omitted. The content! of this report
wire communicated to the press hirer the trial, a piece of Irregularity
strongly condemned by the trial judge.
Obviously tbe reason for this leak
was a desire lo Injure Lord Ashtown.
and the government disclaim! all responsibility ln the matter. lint al the
trial of ihe appeal the detective Implicated the Inspector-general of the Royal
Irish Constabulary, sir Neville Chamberlain, lie declared thai it wns at Sir
Neville's command that he had signed
tbe document, although he did not believe Ibe charge he had Insinuated
against Lord Ashtown. lie was supplied wilh "beads" lor Ihe second report
he says. These Implications are denied by Mr. Blrrell, who explains Pros-
ion's remarkable testimony on Ibe
ground thai be was confused iii cross-
examination, In the house of commons
tlie Irish secretary wns unable to explain why sir Neville Chamberlain had
refused to let Preston's original report
go before Ihe appeal Judge, on the pie!
thai it would prejudice tbe public service In view of the fact tbat Is has now
been issued as a parliamentary paper.
Summing u|> 'he case. It Is plain Hint
some olllcliils In high places In the Irish
executive are unili'i' a cloud of suspicion, and that It will require a thorough

Ottawa, March 30.���The budget ls
still one of the chief topics of intereBt
in the capital.
The liscal year ends with this month,
and the minister of finance should be
able to figure out closely the financial
statement of the twelve months. The
following are substantial facts:
Total tevenue for 1907-08..$ 96,500,000
Total taxation for 1908.... 73,500,000
Tho latter sum may be compared
Taxation   for   1905-00 $
Taxation   for   1896   tCon.)..
This shows the pace at which the
burdens of the peojsdfl have Increased
during twelve years.
Current expenditure 1907-08.$ 77,500,000
Current expenditure 1905-06 67,240,142
Curt ent expenditure,   1895-6
(Con.)        36,949,142
To this must be added the following:
Capital aud spoclaj expenditure.   1907-08 $33,000,000
Capital   and   special   expenditure,   1905-06	
Capital  and special  expenditure,   1896,    (Con.)	
Adding these we have:
Toial   expenditure   1907-08.
Total   expenditure   1905-06.
Total     expenditure,   1S95-
6    (Cop,.)   ���	
Increase     of     net     debt,
1907-08 $12,000,000
Estimated Increase of debt next year,
Increase   in   1906  S18.81J
Increase   In   1896-6        5,422,505
$.'.0,000,000 to $40,000,000.
In only four previous years in the history of (he country has there been so
large an increase to tlxe debt, aud In
one of these It was due to a readjustment of the accounts of the provinc.ee.
Notwithstanding this enormous Increase of debt, Mr. Fielding claims a
surplus of $19,000,000 on current account. Next year he expect** the current revenue to fall off $6,5*0,000 or
more, not through reduction of taxation, for no change in that direction
has been made, but through a falling
off In trade, At the same time, Mr.
Fielding expects a large increase in current expenditure, so that the alle&ed
surplus will be alimut wiped out, ami
most of the capital outlay added to tho
debt. On the Transcontinental alone
the government exisocts to spend $30,-
000,000 next year; $5,000,000 will be required at once, and another $5,000,000
later for the Quebec bridge, and probably $5,000,000 to $10,000,000 for other
enterprises. So, on Mr. Fielding's own
statement we ynny look for an increase
of some 140,000,000 to tlie debt next
year. This la more than the total In
crease during the last ten years of the
Conservative administration.
For the rost, Mr. Fielding admits
a large Increase of imports and decrease of exports In the year now closing, and looks for a future decrease in
both. His address was a remarkable
contrast to that of previous years,
when he boasted of expanding trade,
of   Increasing   activity   In   matiufacttire.
of the high nnd Increasing pi-ices or
Canadian securities, and of great ppis-
perlly in all branches of business. This
year he had lo tell of special govern
ment assistance to Unanctal Institutions, of curtailment of credits, of business anxieties, of Industrial contraction, and  of his  own struggle  to  meet
maturing obligations.
He had a rather pathetic story of
the Issue of treasury notes, short term
loans, overdafts ln banks, nnd other
devices suggestive of the late Mr. Mi-
oawber. The year after Mr. Fielding
look office he floated a lonn in London
at two and a half percent. Interest
Last May a four per cenl. loan Boated
by Sir Richard Cartw-rlght thirty years
Ago and extended lit 1904 again fell
due. Mr. Fielding gxil a new extension of time at the four per cent. rate,
'dving Ihe creditors the option of tnk
ing three per cent, for thirty years,
the government giving a note for ��105
for each   ��100 due.
In August last Mr. Fielding borrowed
$2,500,000 for a year at four and a half
per cent.
In December last, he borrowed $7,500.
000   for   five years    at   four per  cent.
In January he borrowed $5,000,000
for a year ai four   and a half  per cent.
Last month he, .borrowed J2.000.000
ln France for a yos.r at four per cent,
He has completed negotiations for a
$15,000,000 loan for tony-two years at
three   olid   a   half   per   cent.
During part ol last year Mr. Field
lug wus paying us high us six per
cent, to thu Huns of l-.iigiaud ou over
dialts umountiiig   to  $l,i>uu,ooo.
Muanwuile the Canadian depositors
iu tlie saving.- bank, irom whom tho
government has $90,000,000 borrowed,
aie  receiving  only   three  per cent.
In Mr. Foster's ub.e review of the
budget tbe following were unioug other
lu the last Ave years of Conservative
administration nearly $22,000,000 of tax
ei were 1 emitted. That was the rea
son the surpluses were uo small.
This government continues to In
crease the  taxeB.
The Liberal party was pledged to
reduce taxation, and has' more than
doubled it.
It was pledged to reduce expend!
lure  and it has mure  than doubled  it.
The expenditure in 1896 was $114,
000 a day.    It is now $303,000 a day.
If the present government had not
increused the taxes It would have increased the debt by $15u,000,000 ln
eleven years. If the Couservutlves hud
collected in taxes the amounts thut are
now taken they would have paid oh
more than half of the national debt
iu  their   last ten   years.
Tbe cost of the Transcontinental on
tbe  piesent government estimates  will
(be about double the amount stated by
Lhe ministers when the contract wus
Mr. Fielding's estimate for the section from \\ innipeg to Moncton wus
$28,000 a mile. Already there bus been
expeuded $26,000,000 or $14,U00 u mile,
aud the vote for next yeor'B expenditure brings the amount to $56,000,000,
winch Is more than the nuance minister estimate. The road-bed will not
then   be   holt   completed.
We are to pay over $100,000 a year
above the previous cost of coinage for
the privilege of having a initiL in this
country. ,
The Yukon was to pay for the Yukon, the government boasted, but that
district has cost nearly $4,000,000 more
tnan the revenues. The Dominion is
paying $1,400,000 a year to govern that
country, with only about 6,000 people
ln It, and producing last year $3,000,-
000 worth of gold.
The government has made Canada
a paradise tor middlemen. It has distributed the public domain with royal
magnificence among its friends, but has
forgotten   the   common   people.
We imported last year $104,000,000
more than we sold.
We have imported in the last three
years  $190,000,000  more  than  we  sold.
We bought last year from the United States $85,000,000 worth more than
they bought from us. whereas in 1896
the   difference   was   only   $19,000,000.
The Increase in the value of Canadian trade iu recent years is largely accounted  for by  higher prices.
Higher prices, with the duty based
on   value,   means   higher   taxation.
At the same rate of duty the consumer would be paying at least one-third
more taxes on the same article as he
would  pay In  1896.
A large part of the additional taxation drawn from the resources of the
country has been expended in unproductive works, or wasted In extravagance,  or  stolen   by  grafters.

Dark Bluea Improving.
Putney. March 30.���The Oxford-Cambridge boat race, which a few weeks
ago it w us believed the Cambridge crew
would win without great effort, on account of which Interest ln the annual
event lagged, ls now thought likely to
be a close contest. The race will be
rowed on April 4 and this reversal of
feeling Is accounted for to soma extent
by the secret trial rowed by Oxford
Friday over which the coach of the
crew shows great elation. While the
figures are not officially given It Is
understood that Ihe dark blues made
the distance in 19 minutes, 37 seconds,
and were going strong when they reached the finish. Cambridge on Saturday,
however, did a better trial than this,
covering the course In 19 minutes, 16
seconds, but the light blues had the advantage of being paced and with more
favorable water conditions.

Deadly Umbrella.
Moutreal, March 30.���Killed hy the
point of an umbrella handle being Jabbed Into the corner of his eye and pene-
trutlng his brain during a row on the
platform of a street car early yesterday
morning, Frederick Kaiser, who was
employed as a stage hand at Ills Majesty's theatre, lies In the morgue, while
Louis Lufanime. bartender, ls held by
Ihe police to await the action of the
coroner. The row occurred on St.
Catherine's street. I.afamme. who wns
arrested at his home Inst night, claims
thut he was attacked by the deceased
and another young fellow who he believes wns his brother, and during the
mixup that followed the point of the
unhrella handle accidentally stuck In
Kaiser's left eye.
Auburn, N. Y., March 30.���Unmoved
and without showing the faintest Bign
of emotion of any kind, Chester Gillette was put to death in an electric
chair at Auburn this morning. The
electrocution was the most successful
lhat ever tpok place in the local prison. Uut oae coutact was made to curry
the mandate of the law into effect and
when that was over the murder ot
Grace or "Billy" Brown had been avenged and the slayer had paid the penalty,
giving a life for a life. Only one contact was necessary. In every way the
electrocution was a success and the officials of the prison, all of whom had
ieared that there might be some untoward event in connection with the
execution were moro than pleased. The
electiocutlon was marked throughout
with celerity and the mlnuteBt details
were curried out to ita culmination.
The man was declared dead by the oi-
liciuls at 6:18, but by the watches held
by some of the newspaper reporters it
was two minutes after that time when
the warden announced it to witnesses
and the attendant gentlemen, that the
physicians announced that the man was
dead. The contact that was necessary
for the man to be killed was of ISOo
volts at 1% amperes and it was held on
three seconds more than a full minute.
When this had been done careful examination of the man's heart was made
but there was no sign of life.
Witnesses assembled at the warden's
office at six o'clock, and the inarch from
the office door through the south wing
oi thep rison to the death chamber was
started. This was quickly over and at
6:12 o'clock when the state electrician,
Mr. Davis, made his test of the machinery the witnesses were all on hand and
had their seats assigned. The word
was given and the door leading from
the death cell was opened. Gillette
walked firmly and looking neither to
the right nor to the left, walking briskly along the row- into the chamber. On
either side of him was a minister of the
gospel. Captain Herrick was on his
right and Mr. Macllvray on his left.
It wns 6, 12, 35, when the little party
entered the chamber and the work of
strapping the man to the chair was
quickly over. The official time made
this 6, 12, 50. The contact was put on
at 6, 14. 03 and switched off at 6, 15,
06. Immediately after Dr. Shltzka, the
noted alienist, made an examination of
the henrt. Other heart examinations followed and at 6.18 the warden made the
announcement that the laws had been
Gillette made a confession to his
spiritual advisers.
This reach Is contained ln a statement that the clergymen gave out after
the electrocution. This reads as follows: "Because our relationship with
Chester Gillette was privileged, we do
not deem It wise to make a detailed
statement and simply wish to say that
no legal mistake was made In his electrocution." (Signed) Henry Macllvray.
Cordelia Herrick.
Although the statement as to the confession was not In detail and came to
the world through the signed statement
of the ministers. Gillette had a word to
say to the young men of the world.
This was a communication that was
handed to Warden Benham last night
at 1 o'clock and was given out this
I morning as folows: "In the shadow of
death. It Is my desire to do everything
that would remove any doubt ns to my
having found Jesus Christ, the Personal
Saviour and unfailing friend. My one
regret at thlB time Is that I have not
given him the prominence ln my life
while I had the opportunity to work
for him. If I could only sny one thlnn
that would bring men to him, I would
deem It the greatest privilege granted*
mo, but. all I can say now. Is, I know-
In whom I have believed, and nm persuaded that he Is able to lteep that
which    I have    committed    unto    Him
against that day. If the young mctn of
this country could only know the Joy
and pleasure of a Christian life, I Know
they would do all ln their power to be-
comme earnest active Christians and
would strive to live as Christ would
have them live. There ls not one thing
1 have left undone which will bar me
from facing my God, knowing that my
sins are forgiven, for I have been free
and frank in my talks with my spiritual adviser and God knows where I
stand. My task is done, the victory
won."     (Signed)   Chester  Gillette.
Mrs. Gillette made the following statement: "Though it Is a very hard thing
for me to feel Chester was responsible
for Grace Brown's death, yet it was the
wish expressed to him continually by
me that if he was guilty 1 wanted him
to suy so before the world and that In
bis triumphant death 1 feel that God
has answered my dearest wish and
prayer, and I am also thankful to know
that he did not strike Grace Brown, as
described by the prosecution. A full
account will never be given out, but he
did not strike Grace Brown."
At this point Mrs. Gillette broke
down and sobbed, so that she was unable to speak. When she recovered
her composure she roBumed as follows:
"I leel that he should have had another trial, at which he could have had
an opportunity before an unprejudiced
court and jury and where fair statements could have been made and considered, but my boy was ready to go,
and 1 have nothing to say against Governor Hugos' decision. I think he decided what he thinks ls just, but he has
shown no mercy. I trust that there will
be a strong protest against capital punishment ln this state, that a young life
recently given to God has been cut off
by the law, when it might have been
spared to be useful to the world in one
of the darkest places of that world, a
Successive  Explosions  Due to Gas and
Coal Duat Cause Death of
70 Miners.
Cheyenne, Wyo��� March 30.���Between
60 and 70 men, it developed today, lost
their lives in an explosion last night ln
coal mine No. 1 of the Union Pacific
Coal company at Ilaiina. The explosions were cused by gases and coal
dust and each was followed by fire. The
first explosion .occurred at 3 o'clock in
tlie afternoon killing 18 miners including superintendent and three bosses.
The second explosion occurred at 10.30
o'clock last night snuffing out the Tives
of from 40 to 50 men including Inspector D. M. Ell. The names of the men
killed in the explosion are shown on
the company's books but none of the
names of the rescuers were kept. The
wildest excitement prevails at the mine
where hundreds ot persons are congre-
gregated, including widows, children
aud other relatives of victims. Men
and women are running about crying
while many little children separated
from their mothers are sobbing with
fear. When the second explosion occurred, additional appeals were telegraphed to all surrouning towns for
assistance. One.train ls rushing west
trom Omaha carrying officers of the
Union Pacific railroad and of the Union
Puciflc Coal company.
The regular force of men employed
at mines Nos. 2 and 3 were pressed Into
the rescue work, which ls extremely
difficult. The bodies of 4 of the IS men
who lost their lives In the first explosion were found last night, but owing
to the increasing volume ot gas which
treatened to explode at any moment,
no effort was mude to remove them to
the surface. Fire started In the colliery
lust Sunday. Since that time attempts
at regular short Intervals were made
to extenguish the blaze. Yesterday It
was deemed unsafe to send the miners
down and they were told not to report
tor duty. Superintendent Brlggs with
the best and most experienced hands
went Into the mine, but at 3 o'clock the
lire reached the gas and a terrible explosion followed. ln a few minutes
many men volunteered to enter the
mine to reBcue any survivors. The fire
hindered the rescuers, but they made
some progress. After a long struggle
the volunteers got well Into the mine.
Those on the surface had begun to expect results from the Intrepid daring ot
ihe rescuers, but at 10.30 o'clock the
> camp was startled by a second explosion that partly shut off the shaft of
the mine and most likely killed the
volunteers.   The victims nre below the
enth level and It ls probable the flames
have consumed their bodies.

Ottawa, March 30.���Addressing the
Canadian Club, Hon. P.. Lemleux spoke

A conference is to be held next month
oi representatives of various South
African colonies at which it is expected
that preliminary steps will be taken toward federation of all those colonies.
The Canadian trade coiun..saioner ol
South Africa, in his report to the trade
and commerce department, says it is
stated there thai there are prospects of
the South African colonies reverting' to
the original ten per cent customs tana
which obtained two years ago. Prospects are also that the free list will be
extended and a system oi modern protection established to afford assistance
to such colonial industries as demonstrate any prospect of permanence.

of carbolic acid. The girl is now in the

Monday,  March  30,  1908.
There seems to he a general expectation that Sir Wilfrid Laurler will reorganise his ministry before the next
election campaign, which is probably
equivalent to sayiug immediately after
the present Session ot parliament.
cauuot be said thul tin  Wilfrid has
particularly fortunate  In his col-
���sgUM at any time, and the later liud.s
have been as a rule Interior to the early
ones.     Of  the   cabinet    formed   in   the
summer of   1886 only   Sir  Wilfrid,  Air.
Fielding,   Sir   Hichrad   CartwiigUt,   Sir
Fred. Borden, Mr. Paterson, Mr. Fisher
and     Senator     Scott  remain,     Among
those who have beeu lost to the cabinet
by    death,    promotion  or resignation,
have been Sir Oliver Mowat, Sir Henri
Joly,  Mr. Ulair, .Mr.  Tarte, JJou.  David
Mills,   Sir   Louis,   JJavies,   Mr.   Sifton,
Air.   J-'iizpatrick   and   a   host  of   lesser
lights,    lu most cases their successors
are Inferior men.
Of the cabinet as it now stands the
only men whose names are any Strength
to Lhe party are Sir Wilfrid Laurler,
Mr. Melding, Mr. Aylesworth and, possibly, Mr. Leniieux. The efforts of the
premier to strengthen the ministry by
going outside of parliament for material
have nut uvalled, and the only name
that would occur to any one as a cabinet possibility at the present time Is
Mr. Sifton.
It is Impossible not to sympathize
with the premier's difficulties. He came
into power with a strong, united and
svnlhuslastlc party.    There was then nu
dearth of capable men to choose from.
Now, alter the lapse of hardly a dozen
years, the party is almost bankrupt iu
ability. Some of the men who have
sat in the Dominion cabinet council,
aud several who are there now, are not
Iltted by ability or judgment to sit in a
village council. The claims of race,
creed and locality sometimes restrict
the choice of the leader. He must make
his cabinet to some extent representative of all elements. The only reason
lor the choice of Mr, Pugsley, for exv
ample, was that -Mr. Kuimerson's porl-
lolio was recognized as belonging to
New Brunswick.
Uut even if there were no such restrictions, if Sir Wilfrid had the whole
Duminiou to choose from ior every vacancy, his tusk at present would be
hard. The reason can only be found lu
tlie recent hlslory oi the parly. In 1883
a Liberal convention, representative of
the whuie Dominion, drew up a notable
programme and begun a campaign ol
education. Every young Liberui knew
the programme, some ot its features
were flagrantly dishonest but the rank
und file were probably unconscious of
it. Such declarations as those for
purity    of   elect ions,    provincial    rights,
civil service reform, honesty ami
eoonomj in administration, were well
calculated   to  inspire  enthusiasm  and
morul earnestness. Thousands of young
Lloerals worked lor their party iu the
election of JSiid, absolutely convinced
thai their cause wus the only righteous
N'olhlng of that remains. Those
young men are twelve years older uud
wlBer now, and they have uo successors. They have seen provincial rights
trampled upon by their own party as
never before since Confederation, tkey
have seen the civil Bervice degraded to
an instrument of direct and open bribery, even the bench not being spured;
they have seen electoral corruption on
a scale never dreamed of before, and
they have seen those most guilty of It
rewarded by appointment to the public
service; and Instead of retrenchment
they have seen the annual expenditure
more than trebled.
The party has. In fact, been false to
every pledge that inspired the honest
and earnest devotion of the young Liberals from 1893 to 1890. There is only
one way in which they can recover It.
The "barnacles" will drop off the ship
in the cold fresh water of opposition.
Remarkable    Reversal    in    Bye-Election
in   London���Interests   United
AgainGt Government.
London March 30.���The most extravagant hopes of the Conservatives regarding the Peckham election for member of parliament were eclipsed by the
actual result. Their Candidate, Mr.
Gooch, polled 0,970 votes, and the Liberal candidate, Mr. Gauntrey, 4,470 The
Liberal majority in 1000 was 11,339.
Uoth parlies concentrated their efforts to elect their candidate, aud the
result is of great significance. No British government in recent times has
Buffered such a humilitating defeat so
early in its career. It signifies a reversal of the political situation in the
country at large, for Peckham is a representative metropolitan constituency.
The figures have naturally carried
consternation to the Liberal leaders,
and can scarcely fail to cause considerable modification of their programme.
The Licensing Bill, especially, will
probably be amended, and no serious
effort to carry the Old-age Pension bill
in any form is likely. The Suffragettes
claim uo small part of tlie credit for
the reversal of Peckhasni's Liberal majority.
Not since the notorious Mafeking
night has any part of London witnessed
such a scene of delirium as occurred in
the Peckham district after the result of
the polliug was announced. All the
main streets were packed with parading
thousands, shouting, blowing horns and
The scene In the house of commons
when the result was announced was
equally uproarious. The Unionists
cheered frantically, yelled "resign!" at
the government, waved hats and han-
kerchiefs, and gesticulated like school
boys. The Liberals and Laborites retorted with contemptuous shouts of
"Beer, beer, glorious beer," in allusion
to the big fight by the liquor trade In
Peckham, in view of the licensing bill.
The Conservative newspapers generally see in the election an indication of
the country's hostility to the government's Socialistic tendencies. They also
read in it a verdict in favor of fiscal
The Daily Mail avers that the Radical-Socialist Goliath has received a mortal wound. It contends that if the government, ln face of this condemnation,
pushes on its confiscatory measures the
house of lords will be fully Justified In
rejecting them. It. and not the house
of commons, now represents the sentiment of the nation.
The Telegraph declares that the Interval of Radical ascendancy Is over.
and that the march of Socialistic spolia
tlon has  been stopped.
The Morning Post construes the re
suit mainly as sanctioning tariff reform.
The Liberal and Radical newspapers all make the point that the Peek
ham district was always Conservative
until the general turnover last election.
and that it has merely returned to ils
old allegiance under a strong appeal
to the eslflshness or the Individual elector by the powerful organization of
the liquor trade.
"Beer is triumphant." Is the shocked
cry of the defeated party.
The Moderate Liberal Chronicle deplores the fact that various threatened
vested interests, namely, the liquor
trade hy the licensing bill, coal users,
by the Miners' Eight-Hour Bill, and the
Church, by the Education Bill, combined under the banner of the brewers.
Their victory. It declares, is an evil

a similar view, sees a grave warning

Something    About   This    Barnstorming
Of the new melodrama, "No Mother
to Guide Her," the Nelson Dally News
jpftaKi In the most laudatory terms. The
stock language of the advance agent la
employed to boost the "leading lady."
She, according to the News, is "a beautiful young woman with talents beyond
her years." The business of the company, so says the News, has been
"record breaking."
The foregoing is the opinion of a
paper that cannot possibly know anything about the show. The day after
the performance the News will follow
ita usual course of apology to the public for its exaggerated statements. Tbe
following is what the Spokane Chronicle
of .last Thursday has to say of "No
Mother to Guide Her": "Harry Dewey,
leading man of an aggregation that
lately invaded Spokane with a mellow
melodrama, 'No Mother to Guide Her,'
was released from the Tacoma jail Monday, for his conduct in running away
with Cora I-uft, a 17-year-old telephone
girl. It developed tbat the girl had
either grown tired of the ranter or had
been grown tired of, and was back
home, states a Portland report. Chief
Gritzmacher telegraphed on for the fellow's release, tn response to the frantic-
appeals from the barnstorming aggregation. Dewey got off by a narrow
margin, for efforts were made to secure
the fellow's arrest even after the whereabouts of the girl became known. The
city authorities were unable to act, and
the girl's mother, Mrs. C. Luft, of 875
First street, appealed to the juvenile
court. Inasmuch as the girl is nearly
six feet tall and declares that she is
past 19, no action was taken by the
Juvenile court, hence Dewey's release.'"
other members of the party in I,ady-
smith were also in attendance, and arrangements were made to carry on organization work In that city.
Altogether the visit of Premier Mc-
Bride and Mr. Wood worth to Nanalmo
was a pronounced success and everything poinU to a Conservative victory
here at the next election.
At a largely attended meeting of the
unemployed, a committee was appointed to interview Premier McRride and
present a resolution passed at the meeting. The premier stated In reply that
he would call a meeting of the execu>
tlve at Victoria to consider the demands
of the unemployed.
Chambers  Tomorrow,
His Honor Judge Brown will arrive
from Greenwood tonight and will hold
a chamber session of the county court

Premier   McBride's   Visit   Followed   at
Once by Revival of Party.
Nanalmo, March 30.���The visit of
Premier McBrlde to this city marked
the tlrst milestone of a grand Conservative rally to be carried on in this constituency. Never before in the history
of Conservatism In Nanalmo has been
seen such a large and enthusiastic
audience as that which assembled to
hear the Conservative leader, the large
hall being filled to capacity.
The premier dealt with the different
public questions and outlined the policy
of the Conservative government in such
a convincing and excellent form that at
the close of his remarks every man
present became an enthusiatic working
member of the party.
Mr. Woodworth of Vancouver, president of the British Columbia executive,
was also present and addressed the
meeting. He reviewed the work of organization which was being carried on
throughout the province, and urged Na-
naimo to organize and make a personal
canvass of the voters.
At the close of Mr. Woodworth's remarks a Conservative club was organ
ized and a committee appointed to canvass   the   city.     Mayor   Nicholson   and
3.  O.  E.
The next fortnightly meeting of the
S. O. E. will be held on Thursday evening next, April 2nd, In the K. of P. hall
at 8 o'clock. There are several initiations and a good attendance of members
is requested.
Time for a Change.
A gentleman who arrived from Vancouver states that last week he was offered a bet at two to one, that the Conservative candidate in that riding In the
next Dominion election will have a majority of not less than 1500.

slon in the east, but the reason for this
feeling in Toronto was not only obvious
iu view of the way the city has grown
during the lest few years. What strikes
the visitor to Toronto, after an absence
of several years, is the great number
of beautiful and expensive residences
lhat have sprung up all over the city,
particularly in tlie outskirts. Hard
times do not seem to deter many from
spending money in amusements, the
theatres being always crowded. The
people are lavish in their hospitality to
old friends. The only Kootenay man
Mr. Macdonald met was J. L. Ketallick.
who wus stopping at the King Edward.
Everyone was eager for information of
the Kootenays. The mining, lumbering and fruit-grow lug industries were interesting subjects for discussion, particularly Uie latter. A great many Toronto people will visit British Columbia
the  coming  summer.
