GERMAN TRADE IS HURT
Japanese Visitors Study Industrial Methods and at Once Are Successful   Rivals.
I'erlln, .Inn. 6.���No utterance.*; of n
rnler, diplomatist   or  politician have of
���ate caused rooh Kcncmi comment aa
ihe Jingo Hpeech of fount Okuina, the.
Japanese ���tateetPftn, hefore the niem-
liers nf the Kolie chaiiiliet ol" commerce.
All the merchants concerned In Ihe
Oriental trade assert that bull new has
Hiiffered dnrinK the year under Uh; expansion of .1 apanese trade and ocean
trafllc. It Is a well known fact tbat
the machinery industry especially has
Kieatly suffered, as no protection is of-
fared  to    foreign    Inventor- ia Japan.
Ma< hincs whleh proved of value to the
.lapam se were imported ;uid simply reproduced without the consent or perinis-
.-don of the original owners.
tlerinau manufacturers will never for-
set while the present m*ner.ilion Hvt s
the e\; ci iciw-cs of manufacturers in different   Induvirles  who a   lew  \<;us  ago
peruiitted a delegation of Japaneee stu-
d< nis and InisiueKs men lo visit thetr

emiHsaiies. The Kood-In ailed (.crm.ui

their plants  ami  (he   proc >ss  employed

dit-acovered that the Japanese marmlae-
tui'cd wares, whleli fonnei ly were import' d hy them in large quantlttea un-
der the inetluals and prooeaiei employed
here.
Tho tending of three hundred students aud tradesmen to Surope or the
linlted Slates every your for the purpose of studying modern iudiistrinl
methods   was one  of the  greatest  acts
of statesmanship in the history of the
Japanese empire.
Hut.   (jormaiiy  has   other   grievances.
Some years ago the government nor*
mltted trained men to ro to Japan, nol
only to train the Japanese soldiers iu
the art of modern warfare, hut to introduce the Kiiropean system Into .lapanose
Industrie!   in   (he   bope   that   a   market
would he created for German exports
in machinery and the material branches.
No greater mistake could have heen
committed. That action was responsible
not only for Ihe .lapanese victory over
Kussla, hut for the annual loss of millions of dollars to lhe export trade.
In Inter years one manufacturer pointed to the fact that a uumher of Japanese In 1901 studied the lOuropean ithuu*
industries here and in Auslria. Recently
It was announced that a glass plant employing 2.000 men had heen opened In
Japan, and since thai the Austrian nud
Belgtab export trade In glassware has
fall-on off Blxty per cent.
AUDITOR IGNORED
Protests Were Over-ruled
by .Ministers.
ILLEGAL PAYMENT MADE
Ordcr-in-CouDcil Set Aside Lnw and
Advanced  Large Sums Years
Before They Are Earned.
Ottawa, Jan. C.���It fs now established
that the auditor-genera! last May stopped the advance payment by the Militia department U> the Koss Kille Company. Government organs contradicted
this statement when was made, but the
auditor's report showed that the statement was true. The auditor found
that the contractor bad received serwi-
ty live per cent, on the contract price
or rifles two or three years before he
delivered the goods, and was still obtaining large udvanee payments and
making very slow delivery. Knowing
that the contract did not permit advance to be made except on HHes to
be delivered within a year he thought
this generosity had gone on long
enough and brought It to an end. There
was a prolonged controversy, with tho
resuli thut an order-in-council was pas-
BOdi extending the time of delivery and
allowing payments to go on as before.
This was July *Yi, V.oil. At that time
6.0UU rilles remained to be delivered of
the 10,000 that were to be supplied In
lima, while none of the 10.000 to be delivered in MiOO or of tbe 10,000 to he de-
Uvered In 11-07 had been completed. Hut
advance payments to the amount of
$860,000 had been made on 25,000 undelivered   nnd   mostly   overdue   rifles.
The order-in-council extending tho
time bee-tame a new contnact, under
which the remaining 5.UO0 of the 1.105
delivery order and the whole of the
10,000 originally to be delivered In 1908,
15,000 in all, were now to be delivered
In LOOT. The 10,000 originally to be delivered In 11*07 were now to be delivered in ihe llrst six months of 1908.
At once advance payments were resumed aud the government in September
and October of this year paid the contractor t-98,283, in advances on rifles to
be  completed   next  year.
Hut tho contractor has done and is
doing no better under the new contract
than   Under  the  old.     Between   the   liisi
of August and the end of December he
was to have delivered  L5.OQ0 rifles, or
8,000 a month. The minister stated on
December 4th that 4��00 had been delivered by the IMh of November, instead
of 8*000 in August only 500 were delivered, lu September 1,800, in October ��,-
100, November 000, It is certain that
less than G.000 will be delivered al the
end of the year instead of LK,000, By
thut lime the contractor will havo received part payment in advance Cor ail
i ilies ordered and not then delivered.
For in spite oi tbe efforts of tbe auditor
to close up the business, payments iu
advance keep going on faster than final   puyiuents.
The effect of the order extending the
time has been to slill further delay the
completion of tlie titles and to enable the
contractor to receive another $100,000
on unfinished stock alleged lo be in the
shops. The government Is thus lending
without interest these large sums, for
two or three years to Its contractor
while paying 7 per cent, interest on Its
own large overdrafts.
What the auditor-general thinks ofit
all is shown by the following extracts
from his published letter to the Militia
department    After stating his opinion
lhat no advances shnul^lie made more
than a year before deli-very the audllor
says:
"If this rule is not adhered to it will
lie possible for the contractor, providing
he receives orders, to go on purchasing
raw material and manufacturing parts
of lhe rifle that will not be delivered
to tlie government in the form of completed rilles for a number of years, or
pi rlmps not delivered at all. It Is possible for your Inspector to certify that
payments have been made lo the full
extent of 75 per Cent on all orders given which it Is Impossible for lhe contractor to complete within two or
three yearn  There may be Included in these progress estimates of la-
hour expended, an accumulation of man*
���'"���ietuve<l material from tlu* t'me the
work wns commenced, which Is ahso-
���'������"iy oi no vaule lo ihe government.
Tho department may And itself lu pes
��� ������ .inn of material lo bo consigned to
the junk heap for which large advances
have been inndo.... I cannot consent
to any further advances being made on
progress estimates unti; these matters
are placed on a satisfactory basis."
"'Whither are we drifting ? Does
your department intend to advance 75
per cent, on 10,000 rifles for 1907 delivery' and receive no rifles, 75 per
cent, on 10,000 rilles for 1008 delivery
and receive no rifles und so on ad infinitum ?  Holding those views I cannot consent to your letter of credit being used for the purpose of making
these  advances."
"Tho situation apppars to me to be so
serious that I intend reporting to the
Treasury Beard tor action or decision."
"While progress estimates are certified to by the inspector he has informed
mo that he Is not certifying of his own
knowledge but on tho strength of a certificate made hy Mr. Ernest Wurtelle,
a chait'-red accountant at Quebec. Mr.
Wurtelle may he competent to make a
certificate on behalf of the contractor,
but as he Is not in the employ or under the control of the government  bis
certificate cannot be accepted     If
advances have to be made on the
strength of those certificates aggregating over $:i00.000 I must say that it is
not only unbuslriess- like but also Illegal."
The Trea sury Board, which is a committee of ministers, got around the auditor's objections by promising to change
the method of insjtection, and making
the aforesaid flew agreement extending the lime of delivery, which agreement has also been disregarded, while
advance payments have gone on even
more recklessly   than before.
Tho minister of agriculture is slill
showing Canadian farmers how to got
rich by fattening poultry. Here Is the
result of his operations at seven stations last year:
At Andover be paid $200 salary in
four months and |13 sundry expenses
to tlie superintendent, who fed his
chickens $4 5 worth of provender, and
rc.eived I10JSJB for chickens sold, making a net loss of $155.
At Bondvttle the manager received
$200 salary and $-'*4 expenses. H<*
bought $4:,6 worth of provender, paid
$1:: for boxes anil sold his produce Tor
$:;s0. making a net loss of $:t:,2.
At Howmanville the man in charge received $200 for his services, paid 8139
for provisions. $49 for coal oil and incubators, over the amount received for
eggs, and sold his produce for $52 making a not loss of $:!3fi.
At Chieoulimi the expert was satisfied with $lfi0 for his four months work
PVred cost $1fif��, and his sales amounted
to  $17R. leaving $141  loss.
At Holmesvillo, Ontario, the manager
received *200. other expenditure was
$:ifi and lhe sales amounted to $90. leaving a deficit of $146.
At Vernon River tho manager was
employed six months at $300. His payments' for feed amounted to $141, and
the proceeds of his sale $146, leaving a
deficit of $295.
The Brothers at La Trappe. who probably know more about this business
than tho dep**'''ment of agriculture,
were tho only managers of the seven
who produced a favorable balance. They
came out $46 to the good.
PAY FOR RIGHT OF WAY
Governors   of  Toronto   University   Are
Reviving Old Title  to  Raise
Needed Revenue.
Toronto, Jan. 0.���It Is the purpose of
ilu; University of Toronto governors to
enforce un old agreement made with
the clly In 1889, whereby the properly
owners on Collegs between Henry St.
and VonKe St. on the south Bide und the
easterly limits of the university property and Yonge Street on the nortb siale
will have to pay for the privilege of
leaving or entering their homes.
Prior to 1899 College street was a
pilvate road I***lng to the university,
with iron gales at the Yonge street entrance. It was bunded over to the city
wilh tbe undeastatiding tbat lt he preserved as an uvenue, but in order to en-
BUM the street being naed only for rest
deittlal purposes the governors retained
ownership or about a foot of land on
either side of the street.
The university Is now demanding
from $5 to fU a root from the property
owners ior the privilege of leaving their
own premises to use College street.
These interesting factB came out Sttt-
uralay in an arbitration proceeding he
fore His Honor .litdga* Winchester over
the refusal of the conservatory of music
lo pay |18 a root ror 92 feet 9 Inches ol
frontage on Oollega streei, belonging to
property which was recently purchased
rrom the estate of tbe late Wm. Wilson
lor the sum of $31,000. Mr. Wilson bad
the right of Ingress and egress during
bis life but when he died it lapsed. The
hearing was naljourned sine die.
Many already have licenses, and the
prloea so far paid nre as follows: To-
ronlo Athletic club, tl.000 for 127 feel
frontage; Conservatory of Music, $f.00;
building owned by Sons of I'Sngltind nl
the northwest corner of Yonge and Col
lege, |1,I60: Dr. Palmer, lsr, feet six

leet three Inches rrontage, $!��90, and
Mr. II. .1. Wood, ..Sl feel frontn��e, $150.
The other property owners within the
limits mentioned will be sued to re-
rover Ibe value of the right, but the
Sick Children's rfospltal will be exempt.

Winnipeg. Jan. 6.���During the months
of September, October, November and
December, 35,827 cars of western Canadian wheat were Inspected by government officials, according to a statement
tiled wiih the Grain exchange by David
Horn, chief grain inspector. The figures
showed that the season's crop movement
to date has been heavier by about 1,000
cars than that of last year. The amount
of wheat moved this year showed smne
failing off as compared with lartt year,
hut this deficianoy is more than made up
by tiie big increase in the movement of
the coarser grains.
The detailed figures are as follows

JAMES NEELANDS DEAD
End of Long Fight for Life���Career of
One of Nelson's Earliest and
Best Known Citizen*.
There was general and sincere regret
In Nelson last evening as the word went
round that James Neelands was dead,
although it had been known for some
days that recovery was Impossible. For
the last two days he had been conscious
only for a few momenta yesterday
morning during which he smiled recognition to Miss Neelands, who has remained at his bedside for several weeks.
He did not attempt to s-peak and soon
lapsed again into coma from which he
was not again roused. The end came
peacefully at 5.55.
James Neelands was born at Cree-
more, Ont., on, March 8th, 1S69, and
was then fore in his 39th year. In 1889
bo accompanied his brother, H. G.
Neelands, to Vancouver. They came to
Nelson two years later, and except for
short visits away Jim has been a resident of the city ever since.
Miss Neelands, his sister, and two
brothers, II. George, and Snm., were with
him at the last. The other surviving
members of the family are a sister in
Detroit and a brother at Edmonton.
A funeral service will he read by Rev.
F. H. Graham this evening at 7 o'clock
nt the residence of his brother, ex-Mayor
H. G. Neelands, Carbonate street, after
which the remains will be taken to the
C. P. R. station for shipment by tomorrow morning's steamer en route for
Creemore. Miss Neelands will accompany the body of her brother to the
place of his birth. The members of
Kootenay lodge. No. 16, I. O. O. F-, of
which he was formerly a prominent
member will accompany the body from
the residence to the depot.
"Jim" Neelands' death leaves a gap in
the ranks of the old timers which will
bo felt by them In every part of the
world as the word reaches them. He
was known to nearly every man who
lived tn Nelson during tho last 15 years,
and there Is no one of tliem all who will
not learn oi his death with sincere sorrow.
A man of stroug likes and dislikes
and always outspoken, every division in
the community was sure to find him a
prominent champion on one or other
side, sometimes in earnest, often in
mere love of combat. Hut he never bore
malice and his wit i.iough quick and
keen was never ili-natured. No struggle was ever embittered by "Jim's"* participation and he could always count
upon warm friends In the ranks of his
tempo.t-.ry opponents.
He was ever ready to take a hand in
any kind of game and he was never
accused of playing other than fairly.
In victory he was generous to a fault,
and he was, what all the west admires,
a "good loser."
Behind all his careless, good natured,
easy-going ways, James Neelands was
a man of quick intelligence and good
judgment, which might have carried
him far had Ihey been allied with ambition and persistence. Even without
such aids he wielded an influence in the
community, even in its politics, out of
all proportion to any position he would
even have aspired to. His good qualities
won him the esteem and liking of a
host of friends by whom he will not
soon be forgotten. His virtues were
helpful to many; his weaknesses injured no one but himself. Nelson will
unite in condoling with his brothers and
sisters and in regret for the loss of one
of its pioneers who was always a public
spirited and zealous Nelsonlte.

NEEDS   OF   ���* HE   YEAR.
That L90-S is -0 be a critical year in
tho history ol tjelson no one ha.s any
doubt. Tli' po*ei plant must he com-
etud and pal into condition to furnish
|qiiiu. Ugh and power in a oatUfac*
way, am tba < ity'o title to all the
machinery ar-,) possession and control
or tin' plant must be secured without
�� ��� Tii.t   lank  i.s one lhat must not
in entru ed <���> unskilled hands. Its per-
i" :. i win require patience and in-
rajuigance, and ability to respect other
people's rights as well as zeal for Nelson's interest.
The building of a public school ts a
necessity also. That is not u matter
Involving any difficulty except in the
sale of debentures. But the satisfactory
sale of debentures depends upon th*'
city's credit and that In turn will be
materially affected by the policy determined   upon for the  year.
There are several other matters that
have to be faced at once that are of
very considerable importance to Nelson
and will seriously affect its Immediate
future. The city wharf cannot be allowed to go through another year without, substantial repairs, towards which,
It is felt, the two railway companies
whose, steamers use the wharf should
contribute. Permanent Improvement of
the Baker street bridge is a mutter
that cannot safely be further postponed.
The city's lea.se of the tramway system
will expire at the ind of 1908 and Its
future disposition will depend upon next
year's council.
To summarize the situation, tlie year
1908 presents Nelson with a number of
urgent necessities Involving considerable expenditure, if the growth at
tained in the last few years is to bo
even maintained. At the same time the
city Is beyond the first legal limit of
Its   borrowing   power,  and   the   rate oi ���
luxation is very high, so high that pro-
i" ; t.. owners are feeling ii burdensome.
Here is a situation requiring administrative ability ot a high order combined
with a public spirit not too common in
any community.
It is therefore surprising and disquieting that within a week of nomination
day no candidates are in the field for
ihe positions of alderman. It is generally known that nearly all the members
of last years council are desirous of
withdrawing. But none are coming forward to take their places. One is almost
tempted to regret the disappearance of
factions from .Nelson's municipal politics. While they lived two full "tickets'"
for the seats at the board were always
a certainty and, as a. rule, out of 14
available men seven of decent abilities
could be found. It is not pleasant to
think that zeal for a faction is a stronger motive than zeal for the city. There
is now no spirit of faction. Cannot .Nelson find a mayor and six aldermen of
ability and character who can be entrusted to administer the city's affairs?
It is a mailer that should not he left to
the hazard of nomination day impulses.
Some of the names suggested so far
can only be described as ridiculous. But
It ts obvious that if men of ability cannot he induced to stand the seats at
the council board will be filled by others.
It is the duty of every man with a substantial Interest fn the city to bestir
himself and assist in securing a civic
board that will command respect and
confidence in the city and on the outside.
Agreement Concluded.

$6,000,000 Damage Suit.
New York, .Ian. 0.���The $6,000,000
damage suit of the American Banana
Company of Mobile against the United
Fruit company was called for trial today In the United States circuit court
in this city. Parties In Boston, New
York and throughout the south are involved in tlie case, which already has
attracted widespread attention. The
suit is based upon alleged damage to
the American Banana company at Gado-
can, a port near Bocas del Torn that the
American Banana company is promoting, and also to the interests of the
same   company  in   Costa   Hi en.

STATE   PROBLEMS.
Ohio   Legislature   Divided  on   Local  Option and   Election   Laws.
Columbus, O., Jan. tj.���The legislature
01 Ohio convened today with ull indications pointing to a busy aud important
session. Much untlnisbed business wan
left over when the session adjourned
last April, and a number, of additional
measures ol Importance are to be introduced.
Among the measures whleh come
over from the last session are two of
first imjiortance. One is the Rose county
local option bill which Is now in the
hands of the senate committee on temperance. The fight on this measure will
Ik* made in the senate, tne friends of
temperance are decidedly In control on
the house side and the liquor Interest,
appreciate the fuct that if the measure
Is defeated it must 1��* accomplished in
the senate.
Next In Importance la the primary
election law bill, which was hung up at
the last session. The opponents of
primary election reform considered tho
disposal of the bill at the last session
as a victory In their favor. The advocates of the measure, however, have not
accepted tbe defeat and intend to press
vigorously for the adoption of the
measure at the present session.
Other measures of Importance that
will probably receive attention at the
present session bear chiefly on questions
of taxation, public ownership of national monopolies aud home rule for all
cities-.-
