RIDING   FOR   FALL.
Veregin,    High    Priest   of    Doukhobprs,
Issues Despotic Orders.
Buchanan, Jan. BI,���The IJaaiikliohors
are becoming greatly dissaiislied wltli
ihe arbitrary methods being exercised
by Peter Veregin their leader, to whom
thi'y have attributed more than ordinary powers. A few weeks ago he issued
a manifesto to lhe effect that all cattle,
horses, sheep and poultry be sold, except twenty horses and twenty cattle
lor the three bundled communists living in the vicinity. The poultry has
been disposed ol and sale of cattle and
horses is being curried ou. Now, this
week, a new order came along forbidding the use of lea, coffee and sugar,
and thai all cups, saucers, etc., shall heat once returned to lhe commissary department at Veregin. He also suited In
his communication that even in case of
the illness ot any member uo lea, coffee
or sugar, ln any form, should he given,
aud that if Cod could not or would not
sustain life, then they would have to
die and go t,j heaven���for the will of
Coal would have to be strictly obeyed.
II Is the prevailing opinion here annum
the better Informed Donkhobors that
Peter has become possessed of sufficient property to satisfy all bis personal
needs and is growing tired of the
trouble and inconvenience lo him neces-
sltaicd by the government of these dependent people, and is desirous of ridding himself of these arduous duties by
ala nying to them all the necessities of
life until disgust will grow Into distrust
and thereby cause all the communist!
to renounce his leadership.

ALL OVER BUT VERDICT
Justice Dowling Sums up Evidence and
Leaves Thaw's   Fate to  Jury
for  Second   Time.
Now York, Jan. 31.���Ky noon today
the fate of Harry K. Thaw probably
will he In the hands of Uie jury. The
lawyers have finis-lied their summing up
aud Justlee Dowling begun his exposition of ihe law in the-jo&M when court
convened this morning. As soon as it
is finished the jurors will retire to the
Stuffy little room near the court room
where the trial has been held, there to
remain until they have agreed upon a
verdict or until tlie court loses hope of
their ever reaching  an  agreement.
Mr. Littleton for the defence argued
that there was nothing in the evidence
to show that Thaw was sane hen he
killed Stanford White. On the other
hand District Attorney Jerome declared
that there was nothing in the evidence
to show Thaw to be insane and everything to show that the killing of White
was premeditated murder. Between
these two extremes the jury must decide. They have tne ground for a compromise verdict of murde; in the second degree, or manslaughter in the first
degree. A verdict of not guilty carries
with it, under the plea made, the excuse of Insanity, and if it is rendered,
the district attorney will move at once
thut Thaw be committed to the Mattewan asylum for the criminally insane.
If a verdict of not guilty is rendered,
Thaw probably will be sent to the
asylum where he will remain until released by Judicial proceedings.
New York, Jan. 31.���In closing his
charge Justice Dowling impressed Upon
the jury the responsibility which was
theirs, telling them that they should
bear in mind that upon their verdict
depended the life or liberty of the prisoner. "Your verdict must not be Influence by any matter outside the record," said he, "neither passion nor
sympathy should sway in your deliberations. You must decide the issue solely
upon your calm, dispassionate Judgment
as to the weight, credibility and meaning of the testimony. Nor are you concerned with the punishment that may
follow a verdict of guilty al your hamls.
Your sub' function is to determine if
any crime has been committed. Its
grade, and leave the question of punishment to those responsibility for its Imposition."
Justice Dowling told the jurors they
should bear in mind that the prisoner
is presumed to be Innocent until the
jury has been convinced beyond a reasonable doubt tbal he is guilty, and that
the burden of proof rests upon the
prosecution throughout. He told them.
however, that this did not mean that
Ihe district attorney must prove hla
case beyond every possible doubt bnt
that he must prove every material element in his case. It was for the jurors
themselves to judge of the credibility
of witnesses and it was within their
power to accept or reject the testimony
Of any witness, in whole or In part.

CHINESE INJEW YORK
Preparations    for   Celebration   of   New
Year  at   Midnight���Number  In
Metropolis Now 12,000.
Now York, Jan. 31.���Chinatown ls
agog for the celebration of the departure of the old and the advent of the
new Chinese year. The new year 4605,
Chinese reckaaning, comes in at midnight tonight. The Chinese pay homage to the departing as well as the approaching year, for they hold that, as
the fate of man hangs on the smile or
frown of a departing ancestor, so lt is
with the passing years���they should be
smiling as they go.
So Mott, Doyer and Pell streets are
prepared to Illuminate tonight from end
to end. With the Chinese coloy In New
York, numbering about 12.000 individuals, the New Year's celebration lasts
about a week. During that time there
will be little business transacted. The
celebration ls almost entirely social. It
Is a time of feasting and music. Kvery
caller ls treated to bird nest soup,
slinrks fins, tlsh maws, Chinese candy
and preserves, pickled eggs and many
other strange concoctions.
From house to house stroll the little
groups, and although Chinese children
are kept pretty close at home all the
rest of tbe year, at New Year's time
they are seen In the street ln great
numbers, all of them dressed in the
very best pantaloons and jackets that
their   parents  can  afford.
Noise ls an essential part of a Chinese festival of any kind. Firecrackers,
big and little, are exploded in great
quantities. Intermingling with this
roar is the clang of gongs, the clashing
of cymbals, the beating of queer little
pigskin drums, and sounds from the
harsh and untuned flageolets and shrill
ilules. Only a son of the Flowery Kingdom can recognize iu this noise a semblance lo music.
Tne Chinese theater lu Doyle street
has been closed the past three alays to
give the actors au opportunity to celebrate Ilie iNew Year. During the coming week they will have little chance
tor rest or recreation, for the New Year
is the harvest time for Chinese managers and Thespians. Tomorrow the
theater will reopen with a matinee, the
only daylight performance given In all
the year. The play chosen from the
company's repertoire of 400 Yuen plays
is a pretty trille called "Sixteen Man-
alurin. Only Three bad." lt is one
of the so-called king plays, which
means, among other things, that the
aciors will all wear their most gorgeouB
costumes, which are really very beautiful fabrics. For the New Year's matinee the orchestra will be augmented
by the addition of six pairs of brass
gongs   and  five   tom-toni^.
Not the least of the New Year ceremonies of the Chinese is the workshop
of their throneless king, * Confucious.
With them he takes lhe place of Mohammed or Buddha. JJales of red
prayer slips have been prepared to appease the gods.
FRAUD ON TOKINGMEN
Advertisement for Carpenters Sent From
Nelson   to   Eastern   Cities���
Swindler Disappears.
Several weeks ago an advertisement
appeared In the Montreal Star, to the
effect that there was a scarcity of carpenters in the Kootenay, and that good
men would be provided with work I fare
paid) on senaliug $1 to Alfred Davis,
Hoover street, Nelson. A few days ago
Chief of Police Carroll received a letter
from the east enclosing the advertisement aud asking him if the advertiser
was a tellable person. The chief made
inquiries aud finally came to the conclusion that the affair was one that demanded further investigation. He discovered that a number of letters had
been delivered to some one who lived
at the address given in the paper, and
that there were still a number of letters
at the postoffice not yet delivered.
Yesterday afternoon Policeman Ellis
was detailed on the case. He first learned that the letters were generally called
for at about 3 o'clock ln the afternoon.
Shortly before that hour he secreted
himself at the postoffice and remained
for half an hour or so, when two young
women inquired at the wicket for letters addressed to Alfred Davis. When
they departed the officer followed them
up, and found that one of the young
women entered a busiuess place aud
called out one of the employees. She
hauded him a registered letter, and
shortly afterwards the man went down
tc the postoffice. In the meantime the
chief came along, and in company with
Policeman Ellis the two women and the
man were kept in sight until near five
o'clock, when they were joined by a
fourth party. Then the policeman requested the four of them lo come up to
the police station.
There they were closely questioned,
and one of the men who lives at the
address given told the following story.
Seme wc. Sts ago, he said, he met Davis,
who on further acquaintance informed
him that he expected a number of letters from the east and as he would be
out of the city a great deal he would
ltke to use the street address of his
new acquaintance. No objection was
taken to this, and the letters as received were handed over to the young man
tj whom they were addressed. The
other day this young man again called
and said be was about to leave for Vancouver and would like to have his et-
ters forwarded to a given address at
the terminal city. It was stated by the
lour people tu tho police office lhat al*
rtady some of the mail had been forwarded, und tnat the letters which ar-
rived yesterday would be sent on tonight.
The story, as told by the two men,
was most convincing, and the chief of
police, after hearing this story, decided
to no longer deprive them of their liberty. In the meantime the chief of police at Vancouver has been notified, and
the last chapter of the story has yet to
be   written.

CRITICISMS OF CHARITY
British Labor Leader Says Present
Methods Are Unscientific���Bod-
get Awaited.
London, Jan. 31.���Participating in
the debate in the house of commons
last night on the question of the unemployed, John burns, president of the
local government board and labor leader in the house, denounced au unscientific the distribution ol religious, philanthropic and private charity which he
declared was usually misapplied, and diverted to wrong persons. Ue told oue
of his own experiences recently when
alter an otUcia, tuiicliou he joined two
thousand ot the unemployed at tue Victoria *t-mbauKiueut.
"1 was in my court dress," he Bald,
"but pulled my bowler hat over my
eyes aud looked miserable, and I got
my bowl ol soup and hunk of bread-"
Mr. Hums moved tue rejection of an
amendment to the address regretting
that the King's speech had not recommended legislation dealing with the
unemployed question, and the amendment was defeated by 1��6 to 146. An
Incidental remark made by Mr. burns
during his speech that the scheme of
Herbert H. Asquith, the chancellor of
the exchequer, for old age pensions
would provide for a million 1-a.ople at-
i 'icted , much attend'.r. i^a.--rward-s.
Nothing hitherto has leaked out in reference to the intentions of the government but it was generally assumed that
it would purpose a penBion of five shillings weekly in certain cases. If so Mr.
Asqulth'B scheme would entail the an*
uual expenditure of   ��S 13,000,000.
RELIGIOUS   CONFERENCE.
Methodist     Minister     Praises     Roman
Priests' Control  Over Aliens.
San Francisco, Jan. 31.���More than
100 delegates and many more visitors
attended the first inter-denominational
missionary conference ever held on this
coast at Calvary Presbyterian church
yesterday, bishop John Waldon of New
York, secretary of the board of missions of the Methodist church, was the
principal speaker yesterday. That tho
condition of the city is better for the
making of citizens than the conditions
Of rural life, was the startling statement
made by the bishop. "I trust the interests of this country to the people of
the cities sooner than to any other section of your country's population," he
said. The bishop paid a high tribute
to the Roman Catholic church. "Aside
from any consideration of the religious
value of the Roman church," he said,
"its priests are a mighty police power
for the preservation of order among the
alien population of American citieB."

PAYMENT   OF   BOUNTIES.
\
Returns brought down in the house
or commons show; that in  twelve years
Canada hus paid a trifle over $13,000,1	
or a little over $1,000,000 a year, In
bounties to industries, the chief beneficiary being thu Dominion Steel com
pany.
The principle of bounties is very hard
to defend on general grounds. In a in -
tiade world mere would be no place loi
bounty or tariff, Kach part of the earth
���would produce that for which it la best
suited, and where manufacturing industries would not pay they would not be
attempted, at least until the better
adapted districts proved inadequate to
the task of supplying the demand.
but this is not a free trade world
any more than it is a world of perfect,
inviolable peace, and the one ideal is as
remote as the other. Every nation
wishes and attempts to become sufficient to itself, with one exception. Sixty
years ago the Uritish people, lured by
the mad dreams ol Cobden** and with its
ministers of the day panic-stricken by
an Irish famine, sacrificed its entire agricultural interests and voluntarily became dependent on others for its food
supply. -No other nation has followed
the example and Uie liritish are beginning to recognize that something must
soon be done to avert the consequences
of that blunder.
All peoples wish to have within their
borders at least two classes, agriculturists and artizans. With either lacking
economical independence is impossible.
Canada is assured of steadily increasing
agricultural product. For that product,
as it must not be unduly sacrificed
abroad, a home market must he created.
Therefore manufacturing industries
must be created and developed. The
Americans have accomplished that end
by unprecedented protective tariffs,
Germany by high tariffs and, where
they failed as in the sugar industry, by
bounties also.
Canada could create and foster industries by tariffs alone, and probably
without the extremes used by the
Americans. But, for utterly inadequate
reasons, the present government is
afraid to raise tariffs or impose new
ones, aud the bounties are therefore a
necessary alternative expedient.
Generally speaking, they have so far
been justified by results. Nova Scotia
���directly, and all Canada indirectly, have
profited by the impetus given to the
manufacture of steel, to an extent that
repays many times what has been paid
for it out of the Dominion treasury.
What has been done in the east can
be, and should be, done in the west. A
great Industry can be developed in
Kootenay in tlie production of lead and
the manufacture of lead products, but,
in its initial stages certainly, and possibly while foreign conditions remain
what they are now, It will require the
si;me kind of assistance that has been
given to the steel industry in Nova
Scotia. The necessity of such assistance and Kootenay's title to It are clearly appreciated here. The claim for it
is made by the .boards uf trade individually and collectively, and Is endorsed
by the Conservative association of Nelson. A similar endor.sation by the Nelson Liberal association should be given
at once.
EDITORIAL  COMMENT.
The whole Diberal representation in
the legislature, with the exception of
Dr. Hall who was probably taking a
rest somewhere, voted with the Socialists in support of Hawthornthwaite's
appeal from the ruling of the speaker
that a motion to impeach the lieutenant-
governor was out of order. The matter
i.s of no importance except that the Liberal party now stands committed to the
theory that a provincial legislature may
"impeach" a Dominion government official. No one expected Mr. Hawthorn-
thwaite to know the meaning of Impeachment but what blight has come
over the great analytical mind of the
other leader of the opposition?
scene in which the navies of Hritain
and Japan should he lighting as allies
against, a common enemy, Some1 British newspapers are still expressing
surprise at what one calls this"amazing
oratory." It is amazing only because
they don't know our Sir Wilfrid. At
banquets in connection with jubilees
and conferences where most of the
speakers are expected to say nothing
and say it gracefully and sweetly, Sir
Wilfrid is admirable. Hut he should
never he taken seriously on a serious
subject. Of course he didn't mean
any harm by his "amazing oratory."
There was no meaning at all in Ids
mind, and if the words into which his
sweet voice ran seem to convey a
meaning, he should hardly he held responsible.
In a recent debate in the Mouse of
Commons Sir Wilfrid Laurier let hlB

CANADA'S NEW HYMNAL
Book of Common  Praise as Drafted for
Presentation to  General   Synod
of Dominion.
Winnipeg, Jan. 31.���The labors of the
hymnal committee of the Church of
England In Canada, of which Ven.
Atehak-acon Fortin Is a member, are
Mating a close, and the fourth draft
��1 Ilia: "Canadian Hook of Common
1'raise" has just been Issued from the
press. It Is (lie bouk which will be
presented for the cousialuration ol the
General Synod, and contains the hymns
ln the form which the committee suggests for the tinal volume.
The new draft gives an excellent Idea
of the care which has been taken to
make the collection one which will appeal to all sections of the church. The
linn who made the selections dSd not
try to select only those hymns that
Would be acceptable to a.i persona who
will use the book. Such a policy would
doubtless have resulted lu a complication which would be satisfactory to no
one. Instead of that the unity which
the book ought to elTeet will be one of
inclusion and not exclusion. The
volume contains, on the one hand,
1-aishop Woodtord's translation of the
beautiful Communion hymn, by St.
'i in,i...is Aaiuinas. to which some ex*
ii. ii.i.,i.s object, and on lue other, a selection of the best revival hymns wnicti,
as even those who consider them the
lowest form of hymuology will admit,
are usetul ior conducting missions in
places where the congregation will sing
only pieces with a "swing to them." As
ih. report to the synod regarding the
policy ol the committee says: "Unit>
is strength. We are deeply convinced
that this great uuileriakiug has been
inspired uy the Spun oi i_a.d. Willi devout couildence the 'ilook of Common
riaise' is commended io you as the
fruit of much labor, thought and prayer,
as a not unworthy companion ol
the liook of Common l'rayer,' -May it
help to draw away our minds from
dwelling on the things in which we
honestly differ and iix them on thosu
iu which we cordially agree. Such differences of opinion may and will continue to exist; but they need not and
they will not hinder this combined and
earnest eria.rt lo unite us all, young
nun and maidens, old men and child
reu.' lu praising the name of the Lord."
This report of the General Synod is
one of the most interesting features
of the volume. It gives the story of
the movement to supply a hymn book
which would take the place of the
seven hymnals now used in the Canadian church, and tells how the work
of tlia> compilation committee was done.
In concise form the aims of the men
in charge oi the work are recounted so
that they may be compared with the
result of their labors as a test of their
aim to make a hook which woulal prove
satisfactory to tho whole church. The
r, port is of such interesting character
that,   with   a   few   slight  alterations,  it

mj-ght  well  serve as a preface for the
volume in Its final form.
Turning to the contents, the first
thing to notice is the fact that no one
of the popular hymns has heen omitted
by the compilers. They form the foundation of the work. To them are added
such great modern sacred poems as
"Crossing the Bar," and "The Recessional," and many other hymns which
have recently become popular, like
those in Stainer's "Crucifixion," and
others, written in the past few years.
The hook contains suitable hymns for all
seasons of the church's year, as well
as an ample selection for all varieties
of special occasions. Great care has
evidently been taken in the choice of
these hymns to find poems which had
more than their appropriateness to recommend them, so that there are very
few, if any, hymns of the "made to
order" variety, which slightly marred
such splendid collections as "Hymns,
Ancient and Modern." There are twelve
carols included as well as "The Story
ot the Advent," and "The Story of
the Cross," for the benefit of those who
may object to such crude examples of
hymnology as "Rescue the Perishing,"
"There Were Ninety and Nine," or
"Oh, Yes, We Shall Gather by the River," it may be added that they are
grouped together at the back of the
book, so that they are, as It were, out
of the way,  unless  required.

San Francisco, Jan. 81.���The sale of
scats for the Attell-Neil fight tonight
indicates that a very large crowd will
see the battle for the featherweight
championship. The articles call for a
twenty-round go at 122 pounds, the
featherweight limit. Nell is impatient
lor the battle to begin, as he wishes to
wipe out the blot placed on his record
by his recent defeat at the hands of
Owen Moran. All reports show that
both fighters are in excellent trim and
a fust and lively battle is expected.
Protecting British Subjects.
Marysville, Cal., Jan. 31.���In connection with the attack on seventy Hidoos
by a mob at Live Oaks, Sutter county,
last Sunday, the British consul at San
Francisco has requested Governor Gillett to make a full investigation of the
affair and to cause protection to be given to the Hindoo residents of Live
Oaks. Governor Gillett has instructed
the district attorney to prepare a comprehensive report for the British government.

Governor Hughes to Speak.
New York, Jan. 31.���Republican politicians are inclined to attach much Importance to the appearance of Governor
Hughes at the Republican Club dinner
tonight.. Official announcement has
been made that the governor will make
an address and it Is further understand
that he will speak on national issues.
Whether his adalress will be a full outline of the platform on which he Intends to contest for the Republican presidential nomination is not certain.
Some of tbe politicians incline to the
belief that Governor Hughes will, In
his address tonight, make plain his position with regard to the leading issues
that are expected to figure in the national campaign. Others are of the opinion,
however, that his speech at the Republican club will be merely a preface to a
more important address to be delivered
later, probably at the banquet of the
Hrown Alumni association to be held in
Boston early in March, and which Governor Hughes has already consented to
attend. Close friends of the governor
here say that he has been much gratified by the endorsements of his candidacy thai he is receiving dally from all
parts of the country.
