Raymond Hitchcock, Accused of Assault

tha-r postponement on account of Mr.
Hitchcock's theatrical engagements, It

oeeded with iiii** week.
Friends aaf Hitch cock ara. linn in their
belief thai tba* charges agalnsl him will

since the arrest of the popular young

charges worked up by tbe Qerry bo-
eta-ty It looked for the time bi-lng ns

blighted forever, Bul many people are
now Inclined to tin. belief thnl Hitchcock, though probably guilty or serious

Minority in Committee Has No Right
Until Its Exercise Is Impossible
���Improving Machinery.
Ottawa. Feb. 21,���Parliament has once
moro given the party vote to choke off
Investigation Into public expenditure.
Last week tlie majority in the public accounts committee prevented Mr. Foster
from questioning Director Wlckwlre of
the Sub-Target company 1 which pays
.*-'. i for machines and sells tli-m to the
government tor $250, about negotiations
between himself and himself respecting
the governmenl contract. The majority
in the committee, for the first time in
t.'anadian history, refused to allow an
appeal to be taken to tbe house, and
on Thursday Mr. iilain brought up the
matter in the commons. He proposed
a resolution that "The greatest possible
freedom of investigation into the expenditure of public money" should be
enjoyed by tlie committee and that any
action of the majority in excluding evidence or restricting inquiry should be
subject to Immediate appeal to the
The pi*emier took a singular position
regarding- his motion. He admitted the
right of appeal but objected to Its exercise, lie held that If evidence was
shut out the minority had a right to
seek redress from the house but not
until inquiry was completed and report
presented"- That is to say that after
Inquiry is blocked and the witnesses are
goue. and the matter is closed the house
may be nuked to say that evidence
should have been allowed. Sir Wilfrid
permits n post mortem appeal against
the suppression of evidence after the
evidence Is permanently suppressed.
This Is satisfactory to members pro-
fa ssionally engaged In choking ofT Investigation and to the boodlers who desire protection,    it suits the middlemen.
Obstructionists are now kicking them-
Belves ba cause they did not think of
this trick two years ago. They might
thus have choked off the disclosures of
the Uerwln contracts and many hood*
ling oiwratlons. Merwln Is the middleman who bought ordinary engines for
tlie murine department, paying lhe
trade price or $262 for one and taming
It over to the government for $550, pay-
ink tSSS for another and passing II over
to tho government for $'JG0, and so on
through n long range of articles. At
lirst tho witness refused to disclose the
regular trade price, but when appeal
to the house wns ordered he and the
majority backed down, and in fifteen
minutes tho committee got information
concerning $13,000 worth of business
out of about a million and it half transacted with this group. They showed a
rake-Ofl at the rate of half a million
dollars In the whole transactions. The
device of refusing the appeal had not
then been discovered. Mr. Pugsley

It is a poor week which does not
bring some new development of dredging operations. This time It Is Dr.
Spohn, former Liberal M. P., afterward
Liberal office holder, now pursuing more
profitable operations as a dredging contractor. Dr. Spohn's dredging company
employB J. W. Gendron, whoBe brother
la interested with Dr. Spohn in other
dredging contracts. In the winter season Mr. Gendron works for Dr. Spohn's
company. In the summer he is the government Inspector certifying to the
quantity and quality of work done in
Hie Spohn company contract. But his
relations with the contract company go
on through the summer, when he regularly takes the cheques and pays oft the
men on the dredga-s.. He draws $3 a
day from the government as an independent officer supposed to be rigidly
measuring the work done and determining whether It ls worth 50 as hard pan
or belongs to the 25 or 20 or 14 cents
class. Sometimes Mr. Gendron makes
more than $3 a day. One summer another inspector drawing $3 a day for
watching other work iu the neighborhood farmed out hlB Job at half price to
Gendron and went off about other business, taking half the pay himself while
Gendron drew pay and a half. As the
country ls paying many millions for
dredging, and as the inspectors have
the power to reduce or swell this
amount by hundreds of thousands the
public can judge whether this situation
is satisfactory.
The bill to provide money to purchase
seed grain for western farmers has
been passed. Advances are limited to
those whose crop failed and there Is no
help for new comers who never had a
crop, aud may be less able be buy seed
than the old settlers, when tne supply
|3 scarce nnd the price high. The advances must be paid in one year. Mr.
Lake and other western opposition
members contended that if the advance
were made at all the settlers should
not be forced to repay it all out ol next
year's crop which may also be small.
The government plea ls that the minister may relax the conditions in necessary cases. As election time is approaching this power nuy be improperly used to favor or coerce the debtors
on whose property the federal and pro-
vinclal governments are taking a mortgage Mr. Lake's amendment for repayment ln three annual instalments was
voted down by the regular party majority. It Is disclosed that the government
distribution will be in the hands of
Leech, the chief perpetrator of the notorious "thin red line" scandal, by which
9,000 Manitoba voters were disfranchised in 1904.

Ocean   Passenger   Rates   Agreed   Upon

Determining Factor.

made the main basis for dlfferention in
minimum rates for first-class passenger traffic on the various vessels of
the companies concerned in the recent conference in London, though in a

of the conference, one of which is that
the Cunard company has agreed to
raise the minimum rate on the Lusltanla nnd the Mauretania from $115,
which it was before the rate war began, to $127.50.
As summed up by the representatives of tbe steamship companies, the
conference accomplished several important results. It restored rates to
the old basis, revised differentials, decided upon a fixed minimum, about
$2.50 more than the old rate on the av-
verage; abolished the 10 per cent, rebate for return tickets and divided travel Into and "ln" and "off" season,
leaving out the "Intermediates." While
the minimum rnte will remain unchanged from one season to the other,
choice of location will be less Inexpensive In the "off" senson.        _--

only the Lusltanla and the Mauretania.

Caronla and Carmanla of the Cunard.
the Savoie and the Lorraine ot the
French, the Baltic. Celtic and Cedrlc of

Philadelphia, Feb. 24.���Frozen fast tba
the ice of the north, the Philadelphia
bark Alkaline lies beyond reach of mails
and telegraphs, while anxious friends
and relatives of the crew watt for spring
to bring them news ot the lost ones.
The Alkaline was caught in the ice
laat October while working from the
west coast af Greenland bound for Copenhagen and Philadelphia. She carries
a cargo of Cryolite which she loaded at
Greenland, and Is ln command of Capt.
Jensen of this city. His crew of 12 men
were also shipped from this port. They
set sail from Philadelphia last summer
for the north. The ship left Greenland
on October 4th, but owing to the ice put
Into a harbor further sou h on October
17th, since which time she has not been
heard from. It is believed that Captan
Jensen found the ice barrier Impene-
tratable and decided to sail back to
The Danish company, which controls
the Cryolite mines in Greenland, will
send the steamers Fox and Ivlgtut to
the north ln April to ascertain what has
become ot the Alkaline. Nothing will
be known ot them until the steamers

Monday, H'ebruary 24, 1908.
The first round in liritish Columbia's
flight for the exclusion of Orientals Is
over, antl the province is so far the
loser. The test case which came before Chief Justice Hunter was snllicient
to secure an authoritative ruling ijsi. the
present status of Japanese immigrants.
The ruling is very Interesting and instructive. The chief Justice holds the
Natal Act recently enacted Io be "Inoperative in as far as the Japanese are
concerned, owing to the Dominion act
of 1907, sanctioning the imperial Anjilo-
Japanese convention of 1906, applying
the Anglo-Japanese treaty of issm to
It ls clear, then, that but for thai
Dominion Act of 1907, (he Natal Act
would nol. be inoperative as far as Jap-
aneae are concerned, and that it is
now operative In respect ot all other
Orientals. It follows, then, thai .'ill
Ule acts passed by the province since
1898 and disallowed by the Dominion
government or reserved at their reaiuest,
were clearly within the I'lghtB and powers of the province. They were not
ultra vires until the Dominion Act of
1907 was passed. The position now is
that Hritish Columbia, like any Australian state, or any other Hritish colony, may exclude any class of aliens its
people may choose to call undesirable,
except one. Wo are precluded by an
act of the Dominion governmenl trom
excluding or in any way restricting tho
entry   ol*   Japanese.
Saturday's despatches from Ottawa
summarizing Dominion government
opinion on the chief justice's decision
and   Its  effect, are  equally  InstructiveL
"The decision of Justice Hunter that
the BriUsh Columbia Natal Act Is ultra
vires ls regarded here as practically the
settlement of the whole question.   Even
If British Columbia should appeal to
the privy council, the act could not be
enforced pending the liual decision of
the latter court, as It would be within
the power ol the Dominion to secure an
injunction from a court restraining the
province from any further attempt to
enforce the act. Hy awaiting action or
Uie court the lJominion government, it
is claimed, has obtained a better settlement of Iho question than if it had
disallowed the act. In the latter case
the province could have at once passed
another act, and the situation of the
past few days would have been repeated."
The lirst conclusion, as we have already pointed out, Is fallacious. The
chief justice has not declared the act
ulira vires but merely inoperative as
against Japanese, and made so by recent act of Ule Dominion government.
The succeeding statements, as to tha*
steps that would have been taken to
thwart the will of the province had the
act been declared valid, betray a characteristic want of scruple as to means.
There was no intention of allowing the
enforcement of the cat. If the courts
would kill lt, so much Uie better; but,
if   not,   then   it   must   be   disallowed.
Such an attitude may bo capable of
defence on grounds of imperial policy
but we shall be curious to see how the
solid seven, Including the "proantl-
Aslatlc" MacI'lierson. wll defapd it aati
the platform in liritish Columbia. The
grievance of this province is not so
much against Sir Wilfrid Laurier as
against h,?r representatives at Ottawa
who sat silent while an act was passed
rendering any future act. of British Columbia "inoperative ln so far aa Japanese   aro   concerned."
Big Works of Guggenheim Company In
Twelve-Mile   Country.
Ua .vHoii, Feb. 21.���Chester A. Thomas, manager of the Klondike Guggenheim interests, and party have return-
iil after a four-days' swing around lhe
circJe in the Twelve-Mile country, Inspecting the extensive works of the
big,   company.
In tho party with Mr. Thomas were
Governor Henderson, Angus McDon-
Donell. foreman for the company; E. O.
Finlult on, manager of the Hank of Hrl-
tlsh   n orth   America;   Judge   Craig,   I..
C. Senkler, legal adviser; diaries Mac-
Pherson. director of surveys: Major H.
S. Tobln, counsel for the company.
A total of 170 miles was covered during the trip. This took the party over
the splendid system of roads made by
the company incidental to the construction of its sixty miles of ditch and
flume, in which a river will be lifted
over the hills to Bonanza, Eldorado,
Hunker and Klondike benches for hydraulic and other mining purposes.
"The Guggenheim works In the
Twelve-Mile country," says Governor
Henderson, "are something marvelous.
They show that a tremendous outlay
of capital and great systematic effort
are being undertaken to bring water to
the old  placer  streams  of  the camp.
"1 was particularly struck with the
thorough system.    No effort ls lost.
"Large four or six-horse teams haul
ihe lumber from the mills to points
of distribution along the general route
of Uie Hume, while other teams are
engaged in conveying red wood staves.
Imported from California; iron hoops
and other material to the extent of
thousands of tons from Twelve-Mile
Landing to points along the line of the
vast viaduct. In places Inaccessible for
teams, material frequently is lifted with
cables to higher elevations, and there
"There can be no doubt but that the
company Is planning to carry on extensive operations the coming summer.
The widespread distribution of material
indicates this."
Dr. Thompson, member of Parliament, has been working for years to
gftt it arranged that Dawson's winter mail service would be complete,
but there ls no assurance as yet that
there will be a lifting of the clouds.
In the meantime Dawson will be
consoled with having two Christmas
seasons and a great shining mark toward which to press, fixed by the time
the old Yukon gives up her deadlock
of Ice and loafs lazily toward the sea.

Dakota     Farmer    Will     Raise    Angora
Goata and Down Sheep North
of 70-Mile   Houee.
Ashcroft, Feb. 24.���L. B. Price and
sons have left ABhcroft with 160 Angora
goats and 183 graded Down sheep for
their place some 38 miles back of the 70-
Mlle House. One of the boys brought
the gouts and sheep from Sprague,
Washington, together with a carload of
household effects.
Mr. Price, with one of his sonB, preempted land in the neighborhood of
Fish Lake, and have put up hay
enough   to   keep   the   stock   till  spring.
In October Mrs. Price joined her
husband with her daughter, and now
ihe whole family, with the exception
of one boy���they have four boys���is
with them. They have all been brought
up to ranch and farm life, and are
just the right sort of people to make
a success of ranching in the backwoods. They have handled sheep and
goats before, and know just how to
care for them. Regarding the wool
from the goats, or more properly
speaking, mohair, Mr. Price says it averages in price from 31 to 3G cenU a
pound* and that the average yield per
animal is about five pounds. In weight
when grown they will average a little
heavier than sheep of the same age.
When fed on food the same as sheep,
he says the meat tastes exactly like
mutton. Angora goats are good rustlers, and, like our friend "Billy," have
a wide range of taste. During the sum-*
mer both sheep and goats will be herded and enclosed in a corral at night.
li is Mr. Price's intention to raise
horses   and   cattle   as well.
That part of the country where Mr.
Price and bis boys have settled will
very soon be better known than it is at
present, for the question of roads is a
serious one, with. Mr. Price's neighbors as well as himself. From the 70-
Mile House to Mr. Pressey's, the first
settler, the distance is 23 miles, and
the road is good. From there to Mr.
Atwood's, three miles, it Is very ponr,
and tbe same condition applies to Mr.
Simmons, another three miles. Nine
miles farther is Mr. Price's place,
Greenside Hill, with no road, and 15
miles more is Mr. McDonald's place,
and it is also without a road.
Mr. Price was originally a farmer in
Dakota, but the spirit of the man is
tbat of a pioneer, and so he came to
Washington. That state is getting too
settled to suit him, and so he was attracted   to   British   Columbia.
Yerkee' Widow's Philanthropy.
Chicago, Feb. 24.���Mrs. Mary Adelaide Yerkes, widow of Charles T.
Yerkes, the Chicago financier and traction magnate announced yesterday that
it was her desire to devote a portion of

a magnificent hospital in Chicago. It
is Mrs. Yerkes' desire herself to design
the hospital. The Incomplete plans provide for the erection of at least one of
the groups of buildings during her life*
time, fhe erection of the rest of the
group and the necessary endowment
for the entire institution will be provided for in her will.

Publicity Bureau.
An appeal will be made to the council
either tonight or at the next meeting for
such assistance as can be given for
maintaining a publicity bureau. The
necessity for such an Institution was
demonstrated at the last meeting of the

daily. The secretary of the board of
trade is deluged with Inquiries which daa
not relate definitely to the board's business, and should be turned over to a
publicity bureau. Many of the inaiulrles
are for Information as to the bonaflales

the latest of which, referring to lands
on the east side of Kootenay Lake, are

Mr. Ebbutt may think of such advertisements the only reply he Is authorized to
make by the board of trade is to nalvisa*
purchasers to come and see.   The cra-dft
