Big   Shipment   Going   Into   Dawson   of
Suppliee and  Equipment for
Season's  Work.
Dawson, March 0.���Thirty tons of material are to be brought over the Ice
from White Horse to Dawson and hauled through to Forty-Mile this winter
on sleighs for use In altering the big
Davidson dredge. The material should
reach White Horse at any lime now,
and be ready for shipment in a fortnight or a month.
This will be perhaps the heaviest Individual consignment ever started from
Dawson on sleighs for one mining concern In the Yukon. The material could
not be delivered by boat before the
close of navigation last fall, and it Is
indispenBible In the conversion of the
dredge into a modern machine. The
most essential part to be provided is a
stacker of the conveyor type. The alterations will cost thousands of dollars,
and the hauling of the supplies over tlie
Ice will multiply the outlay thousands,
but It is calculated that It will be fur
better to deliver the dredge extra parts
over the ice al the additional cost and
to have ihe advanlage of an early start
and a long season than to wail until
June for the river to open and then to
consume a month or more in getting the
alterations completed.
The Davidson boys are expected to
come over the ice to Dawson some time
In March.
Tho material to be used ln the alteration of tbe dredge will lie hauled a
total of 140 miles or more by sleigh.
Tbe dredge Ib on Sourdough bar. where
It, Is understood, splendid pay was
struck by the old dredge last rail. With

conference   on   rural   progress   lu   New
England was held today at tlie offices or
the State Hoard of Agriculture, tbe attendance including representatives ��r
all  the  Important   rural  associations  In

Settlers En Route for
British Columbia
Train Load of Immigrants Passing
Through Winnipeg to Reach
Pacific Province.
Winnipeg, March 6.���On Wednesday
or Thursday next 550 Salvation Army
Immigrants are expected to pass through
the city. None of this advance guard of
army Immigrants, which are to come in
such large numbers this year, will stay
over In Winnipeg. Almost all of them
will settle in llritish Columbia, though
a few will remain in Alberta. But none
of those on board the special train have
tickets to auy place east of Medicine
Hat. Colonel Howell and Major Crelgh-
tou will go to Fort William and Join the
party there. Adjutant Wakefield, the
immigration agent at Vancouver, will
meet the train at Winnipeg, as he has
been in charge of the work of securing
positions for these people. As soon as
they arrive In llritish Columbia it is expected that almost all of them will have
definite work provided as the western
officials have been prepared for the arrival of the people, and have done their
utnioHL to secure positions for them.
The arrival of these people marks a
new stage in the colonization work ln
this country. Other religious bodies
have founded colonies in Western Canada, but none of them have had as
their object the continuance of an extensive immigration policy. While not
all tho immigrants belong to the Salvation Army, and while the people will
be more or less scattered, yet nevertheless they will give a certain character to the community as did the
Quakers in Pennsylvania.
American   Baseball   Cluba   Fighting   for
Players Under Contract.
Cincinnati, March G.���The National
baseball commission gave out a number
of decisions yesterday. San Francisco
secures player Arrellanes, proving a better claim than that of the American
league team in New York who had signed him in the belief that he was a free
agent, when he was under contract to
the California team.
Player Samuel Edmondson, claimed
by Washington, and used last year by
Minneapolis and Desmoines without,
having titles to his services, is declared
to be a free agent. The Washington
management Is censured and a fine of
$2."i Is imposed against both Desmoines
and  Minneapolis.
The claim of player Hen Caffin, for
salary from Cleveland for the time between the end of the Ohio nnd Pennsylvania season and that of the American
league, is disallowed, the commission
finding that Cleveland had not ordered
him to report during that period and
had no ground for his claim. There
having arisen some question over the
transfer of players, Irwin and Wilhelm
from Birmingham and Brooklyn, all
parties agreeing on the facts, the commission apportions the purchase money
$500 lo Birmingham, $300 to the player
and ths balance to ihe commission for
vlo'utlou of the rules regarding a non-
reserve contract.
Player Asmussen Is declared for ever
Ineligible on a rehearing of the claim of
his services. He hud claimed that he
should he declared a free agent, being
under contract, and In a former decision
the commission so ruled. Since then
his contract has been discovered and
the case was reopened and a new ruling
A fine of $2,500 is declared on Brooklyn for signing played John Doseher,
who is declared to hclong to the club
on whose reserve list lie appeared last
'he application of Edward Hughes
for release from his contract with the
Boston American league team was refused, the club having acted entirely
within Its rights. Player Oscar Knell
presented tio evidence In his application for reinstatement, and tho request
was therefore refused. At the same
time formnl notice was given to all
major league clubs regarding their actions ln the matter of purchased nnd
drafted players, a threat of fine for violation of the provisions of tho national
iign cuietil In that regard Is being made.
Augustua   Machen,   Serving   Term   for
Poat Office Frauda, Haa Earned
Early  Liberty.
Washington, D. C, March 6.���Augustus W. Machen, one of the ringleaders
in the poBt office graft cases and whose
trials established a record for hard-
fought criminal cases in which the
Federal government has been Interested, is about to become a free man
again. Machen was sentenced to serve
two terms of two years each ln the
West Virginia penitentiary at Mounds-
ville. His good behavior has had the
effect of reducing the time to three
years and at midnight tonight his sentence expires. He is expected to join
his family in this city tomorrow.
The officials at the Moundsvtlle prison say Machen has proved himself to
be the moet capable prisoner who has
ever been incarcerated there. His
work has had the effect of placing the
ptison on a business basis equal to
that of any establishment���prison or
otherwise���In the country. So important were the reforms instituted at his
suggestion, and so valuable were the
changes made, that the committee of
the state legislature wanted to com-
p itnent him in their report of an Investigation made of the prison, but he
objected  to  receiving   the  compliment.
Machen's work In prison has been
ot such an important character and
his conduct so exemplary- that he has
been granted many extra privileges
during his confinement. He has never
spent a night in a cell. It Is said, having been given quarters In a large room
on the lower floor of the prison. His
work required his presence in the main
office of the prison at all hours, it
having been nothing unusual for him
to start on his wark as early as 5
o'clock and to remain up until midnight. During such time as the prison
work did not require his attention he
has been studying French and German
and Is said to have become proficient
In both languages. He was not required to wear the stripes of a convict,
and persons having business with the
prison transacted it with him without
having the slightest idea from his appearance that they were dealing with
other than a paid officer of the institution.
Machen is said to be the picture of
health, his condition being much better
than it was when he entered the prison. His hair Is a shade whiter than
when he was committed, but he is in
splendid physical condition. During
the three years that he has been deprived of his liberty he has not seen a
member of his family, but a photograph
-of all of them has formed part of a
glass paper weight on his desk. It was
his wish that members of his family
should not see him ln prison, and his
wish was respected.
Industrial      Depression     Admitted      In
Toklo but Report of Financial
Panic is Denied.
Toklo, March 6.���Special cablegrams
from New York and London published
ln the Toklo newspapers have created
astonishment In financial circles because
It Is evident that certain influences
have determined to misrepresent and
exaggerate conditions ln Japan. These
special cablegrams Bay that the decline
of Japanese securities Is due to a financial panic.
The use of the word "panic" as representing the political situation Is entirely unwarranted. No panic exists ln
any direction. Owing to the continued
depression of the silk market, due largely to the American financial situation
and unsatisfactory cotton trade with
China, a number or firms in Osaka and
Kobe have failed during the last three
weeks. The total loss Is approximately
Two or three minor banks in the
province have closed their doors. The
stock exchange has been extremely dull
during the past two months In Toklo.
The railway stocks have fallen heavily
because confidence has been shaken concerning plans for nationalization which
may fail
It Is believed that tho depression will
continue until after the general election.
A leading broker said to the Associated
Press today:
"Government securities were weak
early ln the week, but since then they
have become firmer. Owing to rumors
of failures and many stringency reports,
prices ln all shares have been downward, hut the market shows the firmer
A despatch from Kobo says that it Is
believed that the depression had reached Its limits and that conditions are improving.

honest administration was all he had ln

the commission of the American Railway Association which will conduct a
research into the traffic conditions of
the country on which to base a permanent per diem car rate, was made known

Reuterdah      Says     His    Criticisms    of
Ame  ican   Navy  Are   Shared
by All Experts.
Callao, March 6.���Henry Reuterdahl,
whose caustic criticisms of the United
States navy caused in the nation wide
comment, and who aroused the ire of
the officials at Washington, has sailed
tor San Diego on the supply ship Culgoa.
He Is expected to arrive there in a fortnight. He will then go to Washington
to make reply to those who criticized
his criticisms. The man who declared
that tlie navy is inefficient, badly managed, and far below the standard the
people of the United States believe it
has attained, before leaving Admiral
Robley D. Evans's fleet, said: "I saw
four target practices of the United
States navy, and am now returning to
Washington to meet and answer the
critics.    I must be on the firing line."
"If 1 am ordered before the United
States senate Investigating committee
in regard to my comments on the navy,
1 will give complete proof of all my
charges, and 1 am ready to demonstrate
tbat two-thirds of all the active line
officers uphold my assertions regarding
our ships  of war.
"The navy is bedridden by a lot of
old fogies, who hold their jobs because
they  blindly follow  ancient traditions.
"I am single hearted*in my purpose,
am striking not at men but at a system,
and believe I am an avenger who is
welcomed by the majority of tlie officers of the navy."
After Mr. Reuterdahl's departure, the
fleet sailed from the port for Magdalenu
Day. Admiral Evans is still ill, but the
physicians say he is in no immediate
danger. The admiral suffers excruciating pain.
He said: "You may tell the people
of the United States the fleet will arrive at Magdalena Hay one day ahead
of its schedule, and 100 per cent, greater lu efficiency than when It left Hamilton lloads. We will cut out target practice within three weeks after the arrival at Magdalena Hay. avid do the flower parade up the coast without springing un engine or crippling a Jackie."

Tho IBMgrs aCCOUUt to baud of tht
amonrlmonU to the Dominion election
lawH proposed by Mr. Ayleewortb bard*
ly afford a ba.si�� for comprehensive
summary. Any thing that win tend to
prevent or dlBrourHK'; the ��.*xf;reir��j of
corrupt and corrupting IriMuencoH in
elections ia tiure of a warm welcome
Tho genera] election 1h the one means
tin- (h-mocracy haw of declaring Ltfl will
and it its all important that the declaration he clear, deliberate and honest.
The clauses that provide heavier r>f*n-
alticH for giving and accepting bribes,
for returning officers or other election
officials or any others who tamper with
ballots or ballot boxes, the clauses aim
ed at preventing disfranchisement of
electors by the dishonesty or stupidity
or Officials and those that prohibit corporation interference, will be received
with universal approval
Of course, the vulue of the law will
depend OS much upon the manner of
its enforcement as upon the law ItBOlf.
Many evilH could have been prevented
had the present laws been honestly,
Impartially and strictly enforced, iiap
pliy, it may bo admitted that there Ik
nothing in Mr. Aylesworl.h's public career to justify any suspicion of Insincerity on his part. The amendments
will no doubt receive tho sanction of
parliament and become law. It will rest
then with the officers of the law, the
crown attorneys and judges, and ultl
inately with the conscience of the people, to secure their enforcement and
purge the country of a great evil.
Hut there Is one form of political corruption, the most Insidious and most
dangerous of all, which the bill, as reported, makes no provision for preventing.
Appeals to pergonal venality can be
successfully made only to a small proportion of the electors in any constituency, often, it is true, to enough to decide the issue of an election, but it is a
relatively small number that is corrupted and degraded by them, not the whole
There is, unfortunately, no attempt
in the preHont bill to deal with the far
more deadly form of corruption exercised openly by ministers of the crown.
Election promises are proverbally
generous. When an eager candidate
pledges himself to demand and obtain
certain favors for his constituency, his
pledge cauHcs only general amusement.
The motive in obviously corrupt but
[practically no harm is done, and It is
doubtful if a single voter Is ever Jn-
flue&ced by such transparently silly
Hut It is far different when a responsible minister of the crown, with the
power to make his promises effective',
goes into a constituency, it may be Into
a whole province, and promises favors
on condition of his party being supported.
That Is ibe worst of all forms of
bribery,,the mosl openly defiant of tbe
spirit of the law, and Ihe most corrupt.-
ing in IU Influence on the whole country.
Tie- alternative of "warm sympathy
<t told Justice" presented to Ihe electors of North Btmcoe by the late A. S.
Hardy, on the authority of Sir Wilfrid
.-.Hurler, was the most dastardly appeal
ever made in public by a Canadian
statesman. Tbe indignation with which
it was received by all clauses In every
part of the Dominion roused the hope
that such appeals would be made no
Bul even that outrage has been excelled in (he late campaign In Now
Drunswick by the Hon. W. Pugsley.    It

Is impossible to avoid the inference that
his utterly corrupt appeals were made
with the full knowledge and approval
of Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
Canadians generally will thank Mr.
Aylesworth for his honest attempt to
prevent minor evils, and will deeply regret that some malign influence has
p.evented his attacking the incomparably greater evil.
Our contemporary says this morning:
"It is fortunate for Attorney-General Bowser that It Is not proposed to
make the amendments to the Dominion
{Elections Act retroactive. One of the
am* ndments Is to the effect that any
person circulating false statements
with a view to affecting the election of
a candidate for parliamentary honors
shall be liable to a fine of $5U0 or two
years  imprisonment."
Probably not in malice but in sheer
stupidity, our contemporary has omitted the essential words of the report,
"for circulating false statements about
a candidate." Before Mr. Bowser's
statement would come within the clause
it must be shown that his statement
was about a candidate���merely "affect-
inc candidates' chances" is stupidly irrelevant���that it was false, and that
he knew It to befalse. Without any
of these essential elements established,
'he attack upon Mr. Bowser is mere
irresponsible   slander.
Even if the charge were perfectly
well founded, it would be peculiarly imr
pudent in the circumstances. Every
man In Canada knows, even our contemporary knows, that if the proposed law
had been in force and enforced In the
palmy days of "Hug-the-Machine" Preston. "Thin-Red-Line" Leech, and saore
than a hundred others who are still in
the Dominion civil service, the Liberal
party would be practically without Its
corps of trained "workers."

Explanation   of   Deadlock*   and   Delays
in  Work of Parliament���Oliver's
Efforts to Conceal.
"Is it true," asked Mr. H. B. Ames in
parliament, "that the minister of the
interior has given ordera that docu-
iiMtits asked for by the public accounts
committee shall not be produced for the
use of members except when the committee is in seBslon?" And Mr. Frank
Oliver answered, "Yes." This is another schemes (n defence of plunder. It
haa been the rule hitherto that all public documents brought down in tbe
public accounts committee shall be open
for inspection by members at any time.
The system was originated in the earliest days of our history. It was adopted
because the public documents are voluminous,' and because experience haa
shown that if they can be examined only when the committee is in session
their inspection is altogether out of
the question.
Mr. Oliver's order is designed to make
it impossible for members of parliament
to see the documents for which they
call. When the committee is sitting it
is engaged chiefly in the task of fighting the "blockers." No member can at
such time look over the public papers.
Moreover, there are no facilities for the
examination of documents in the crowded committee room. There Is not even
a vacant table to lay the documents upon when the committee is in session-
It is easy to understand what M:. Oliver
means by his order. Two years ago a
mass of documents relating to the North
Atlantic Trading company came down
from Mr. Oliver's department. If those
documents had not been examined the
thieves would have taken $360,000 from
the public treasury under the pretence
that they were doing something for Immigration, and would still be plundering
us with Mr. Oliver's assistance. It was
because the members of the committee
were able to examine the papers and to
make efflecient enquiry Into that barefaced swindle that the thing was stopped. At the present moment papers exposing a mass of rottenness in Mr. Oliver's department are before the public
accounts committee. These documents
show that the government has been doing with the coal deposits of the west
exactly what it did with the timber
wealth.   Great coal areas have been dis-

estate by way of the department of the
interior are recorded in the peapers.
Mr. Oliver is anxious that another North
Atlantic Trading exposure shall not be
made, and he is particularly nervous
lest the public learn the entire truth
touching the plundering of public property. ThuS It comes that artificial
means are taken to cover up the transactions and to prevent the representatives of the people from exposing and
stopping them.
Mr. Oliver's earliest attempt to conceal public document had a purpose behind it. The minister was shielding the
man who had captured, for relatively
nothing, the best timber limits in the
Northwest. His present manoeuvre is
not undertaken without reason. He is
defending other plunderers. Parliament
would be false to Its duty to the public
If it permitted Mr. Oliver to carry out
his tyrannical and suspicious designs. It
forced him to yield up the documents
in the timber case. It is bound in this
latest outrage to fight him until his attack upon public liberty is abandoned.

tor absent, and it is the all-important
one��� the consumer. Buyers are Just
as desirous for a better copper market
as ars producers, but buyers will not
buy until they can see a market for
their manufactured goods. The same
may be said of the telephone and telegraph companies; they are not building
new lines, nor are they replacing old
wires with heavier ones for greater conductivity; they, like the railroads, are
contenting themselves with what they
have, getting along as they best can,
waiting and watching for signs of a re-
CEitubllshment of confidence in business
ventures. The close observer discerns
these signs; he has ceased to be pessi-
inistic; he is now optimistic, conservatively so.
Those of us who have had some experience ln this "best of all possible
worlds" know, as the saying has it,
that the devil is never so black as he
is sometimes painted. As a corporation
"without a body to be kicked or soul
to be damned," the Amalgamated Copper Company has been held up to the
world as a devil Incarnate, constantly
ln search of whom It may devour���preference being given to those who happen to have loose change to Invest.
We have all of us heard so much about
this devil rampant, so much about the
pernicious "system" he is supposed to
personify, that it is with suuie feeling
of relief one runs up against a two-line
Item Informing him that this Amalgamated devil Is not so black as he has
been pictured. The Item comes from
Butte, Montana, one of the Amalgamated Company's mines, says the company
gives employment to about 2300 men
at the mines, but carries more than
4000 on the payrolls, that Is half of
the men work two weks and lay off
two weeks that the other half may have
an opportunity of earnings wages, biding the time when they will all be occupied full time. Such acts speak not
alone well for the company but for
the men whom the company employs.���

Hope of Slocan.
A visitor from New Denver says that
Slocan mining men are eagerly awaiting developments at the Canada Zinc

will result immediately in a great stimulus to mining operations in that district, where hitherto the large proportion of zinc contents in the ores have
been a source of heavy loss on shipments and has discouraged and retarded developments.

A Good Word for an Old Friend.
Sometimes it does a newspaper man
friends who has hftd as many downs in
friends who has had as many downs in
life as he has had ups. Away back in
1891, the writer was working on the
Nelson Miner, and his truthful statements respecting the undeveloped mineral resources of the Kootenays and the
prospective commercial future of Nelson induced E. E. Phair to migrate from
Rlchibucto, New Brunswick, to Nelson.
He secured a lease on a building and
opened it as the Hotel Phair. For a
doaen years he ran his hotel with varying fortune, only to leave It broke when
he waa twelve years older than when
he opened it. He Is again in Nelson and
again at the old stand, and The Empire
wishes him all the good luck that is
coming to him; but on one condition
only, that Is, that every time a bottle of
Walker's Canadian Club is emptied that
a new label be placed on the bottle before It Is refilled and put back on tho
shelf behind the bar.���Prince Rupert
