,t-i prohibiting extra-provincial con-
llss- meeting came to order shortly

ihe   president  briefly   appealed  for
nines} in the debate.
J. J. Campbell's motion asUug that
lie   motion   to  amend   the   provincial
Wasters'  and  Servants'  Act  was  first
i sussed. Mr. Campbell briefly  point-
l,\ nui  ihai  the  prohibition    of    consul s  with   persons outside tbe  prov-
is.- was the chief obstacle to a solu-
i.n of the labor problem.
(',   11.   Ilroadwooii seconded  the mo-
-on.     It   ��as   promptly    opposed    by
frank Rooks and    John    Ztwmer, tbe
urmer    denouncing    labor    contracts
s,-rally, the latter asserting that lhe
���stlon wns political.
W. Ford also opisised, slating that
,.   preferred  high   wages  and  scarce
jilmr,   and   thought   cheap  Indentured
abor a curse, and utterly unsuitable
s,   agricultural   labor   especially.     Ho
us followed In the same Btrain by S.
.  Fraser.
.1. J. Campbell replied.    He thoughl
Itlii-iv had been enthusiasm for Canadian Inim laborers, and a desire lo fa-
..���ilium-  Iheir coming.    Contracts were
Iiini peculiar lu auy one class of labor;
l.-isuid easti; be prevented without tha
Jdrastlc provisions of ihe Mssn-rs' and
Servant**  Act.     He added   if,  us  Mr.
I Ford  says, we want    to    keep    labor
-_rce und deaf, there Ib no use talk-
I ins furlber.    There Is plenty of work
for young, strong, skilled men at high
wages.   Nuw there is also work for old
"i feeble men. ir Mr. Find's blub wages
I high  wages.    U Mr. Ford's high WagBS
and  scarce  labor is  lhe Ideal  of  the
majority here, let it be so."
After It hud been explained thnt tbo
motion hud no bearing on the Alien
Labor Act, and further discussion by
I C 0. llroadwood. -I. John-tone, F.
Itooks, A. II. Shannon and others, a
vote waB taken, resulting In the mo-
iimi being passod by a vote of 17
to 16.
Mr. Ford then asked Mr. Campbell
in withdraw the resolution, but Mr.
Campbell could not do bo.
Mr, Crousiialle's amendment to the
constitution of lhe association, requiring 10 days' notice of all resolutions,
was then udopted unanimously.
i. w. Ford's resolution was then Introduced:
"Whereas, u resolution was passed
mi August 1st insi iii the name of tho
Kootenay Frull Qrowera' association,
advocating lhe admission of Chinese
us agricultural laborers into this province free of head tax, and
"Whereas, this resolution was Introduced, spoken to and voted upon
Withoul noilce of motion and without
nollee lo Un. press;   be II
"Resolved, Tbal we, n genuine rep-
iisinlallve meeting of lb" Koolenny
Frull Growers' association, do hereby
entirely rescind the above named resolution adopted in our name on August
Isl lasi nnd, admitting tho claim ot
Hie seurcily or labor, substHiilIng
therefor nn urgent aiilieal to tho heads
of governmenl of the Dominion of
Canada and lhe province of Hritish
Columbia for a persistent and aggressive policy of immigration erfort
throughout Great Britain and Ireland,
to lhe end that we may obtain a class
of settlers In this country whose sen
liments und ambitions are In harmony
with lhe aims and policy of our groat
 P're; and bo it further
Itesolveil. That a copy of this resolution be forwarded at once to Premier Laurier, Premier M-Hrlde, the
representatives ��f the district In both
Dominion and Provincial parliaments,
to six ot the leading newspapers of
'ho Dominion und to all other points
"1 Importance where ljhe"Tesclniled res-
nlutlon was sent."
Mr. Ford���While thousands of Drlt-
'"���i laborers are starving at home, I
*'i>iuoi unilei-Btund Ihe advocacy of In
viting Chinese here. Our compatriots
should have first claim upon us, and I
appeal to nil as Britishers to reserve
this land for them.
A. B. Shannon seconded the motion,
H. E. Croasdaile���I had no idea of
creating any friction, and I am glad
thai Mr. Ford Is now also an advocate of good will. Wc are all agreed
that there Is a scarcity of labor and
I think, that It will soon become
acute if a Solution for the difficulty
be nol soon louud. Vi'e are also all
agreed In preferring white labor���
British labor. None or us prefer Chinese to British labor. But shall we refuse Chinese temporarily even If there
be no other available. Chinese are
good farm laborers and make possible
tlie employment of more white men
We need labor, and there Is at pros
"in  apparently no other Bupply.
S. S. Fraser criticized the administration or the immigration department
and advocated a Itritish Columbia
agent, or even a Fruit Growers' association agenl. In Winnipeg, to direct
Immigrants to Kootenay for employment as agricultural laborers.
C. G. Broadwood thought the scheme
impracticable, because the prairleB* demand lor labor was as great as was
J. Johnstone read the following
statement in a resolution he submitted
to lhe effect thai Chinese labor Is temporarily necessary ror lhe development of the fruit ranches on the valleys of the Kootenay, but that when
Ibis had been accomplished the Chinese labor can be dispensed with. The
resolution in lull was passed too late
to be  printed  in  this issue.
Further discussion was participated
ln by F. Rooks, Oscar Appleton, who
objected that Chinese laborers invariably became competitors; Mr. Ford
replying, endorsed Mr. Praser's suggestion ror a genuine effort to divert
Hritish emigrants lo Kootenay. He
thought Mr. Johstone's Scheme unnecessary If i-rrortB were made in the
other directions. He admitted that
farmers could not pay $3.50 for laborers. Pressed for a definition of
reasonable wages,- he suggested; "A
dollar a  day  anil   board."
H. E. Croasdaile ofrered an amendment to strike the word "genuinely-
out of the resolution. Mr. Ford do
elined to accept.
The motion was then put and de-
tented by 2215.
Intense     Anxiety     Existing     Because
Families at Summer Resorts Cannot be Communicated With.
New Orleans, La.. Sept, 28��� New
Orleans early this morning was still
cut otf absolutely from communication
with points on the gulf coast east ot
here. For :',C hours no Information of
any sort had come from towns not
more than an hour's ride by rail in
lhe direction of Mobile, and anxiety
regarding lhe situation in these places
became intense. Tbe gulf towns are
summer resorls for New Orleans and
the members ol many families havo
been separated by the storm. All day
yesierday and Inst night the washout
ou tbe Louisville _ Nashville road. 26
mlles rrom here, marked the farthest
point eastward reached by rail, tela
graph or telephone.
For hours after the hurricane had
passed, the two-mllo iiortlon of railroad track which was submerged by
the incoming tide, was exposed to the
equally dangerous outward flow of tlie
high waler. Local Ijouisville & Nashville officials loday announced all
trains cancelled until further notice.
This mofnlng Lake Point Chart had
calmed and tbe high waler had fallen
very near lis normal level.
The first reports from interior Mississippi towns Indicated that tbe hurricane did great damage In its north-
ward progress. Vlcksliurg and- Mc
Comb Clly reported buildings Injured
and Jackson and iirookhaven reported
damage of lfi per cent to the cotton
crop. Dr. W. N. (Inlliiired, u passenger
ou ihe flrsl New Orleans _ Western
train which came Into the city lulu
last night, snld the train wns com-
celled to run through the storm yes
terilay wllh trees continually falling,
sunie'of Ihem threatening to block tho
tracks, Unroofed or demolished negro
cottages were continually passed, Frequently, he snld, the hiBhlng of tho
wind and cracks of trees made a roar
which drowned tlie rumble of the train.
New Orleans, La., Sopt. 28.���Tho
first hopeful reports since tlie storm
abated here early last night were
brought in by a Grand Island train
which crossed the bank of the Mississippi nl a point about 70 miles below
tbe city. The trainmen reported that
they had seen no serious damage, al-
though al several places the water
wus iill inch deep over the rails. New
Orleans, which apparently was on the
eastern end or the hurricane; suffered
damage to property of ubout |7B,000,
which includes the loss of several coal
barges, all but two or them empty,
Which foundered In the Mississippi
river. The remainder of the damage
was dune along the shore of Lako
Polnl Chart and along the railroad.
The telephone service In the city was
badly crippled by lho blowing down
of ]H)les.
Revolutionists to Establish
American Branch
Is Asked and Urged With a Pathetic Story of Wrong and Suffering in Russian Province.
New York, Sept. 28.���The World today snys: "Ivan Ivanovilch Norodny,
chief executive commissioner or tbo
Russian military revolutionary parly,
is here lo establish headquarters in
America for the revolution. He conies
to solicit 1,0011,0(10 signatures to a pe.
titlon to the czar praying for liberty,
justice and amnesty. He comes upon
a mission of education to disavow the
bloody  ads of terrorists.
A mild mannered man is Norodny,
about 40 years old, whose face tells
the story of his suffering. Twenty
years ago a happy husband, owner of
several estates and a man of consequence in Finland, the land of his
birth, today he weeps for his wife,
confined in an asylum, the victim of
the brutality ol the Cossacks, and
prays for the repose of tlie soul of
his eldest born, slain by the same
Cossacks. Four years in a Russian
prison has left htm a physical wreck.
Mosl ol his fortune has beeu confiscated by the Russian  government.
"I came to solicit names," he said
last night, while seated in his rooms
ln the New Hotel Albert. "I shall present my petition first to the five
Americans best known in Russia.
They are President Roosevelt, Mark
Twain, William J. Hryan, Thomas A.
Kdtson-and Miss Jane Adams ot Hull
House. Chicago.
"I have here prepared a propaganda.
In part it says: 'On behalf of .150,000,
000 people 1 cry out for help. We require nothing but active and sympathetic moral support Oceans of blood
were spenl to free lhe black slave.
Millions upon millions of my country
are suffering a worse slavery. We
despise anarchy and every form of
violence. 1 wish to u.-c'nr i on the
ezar, not a war of blood, but a war of
education, a war of moral suusion. 'ii h
Rssoun peasant hungers for learning,
for books, for teachers, for Christian
missionaries. This is the war I would
wage on tbe czar. This Is not the
time for fire and  sword.'"
"Overseas" Keeps Up Record.
Quebec. Sept. 28.���The Empress of
Ireland arrived this morning at 3:15,
bringing the Oriental malls, which
left in the "Overseas Mail" train for
Vancouver at 9 o'clock. The Empress
of Ireland left Liverpool 9:45 last Friday night and experienced heavy sea

Montreal, Sept. 28.���Out of 300 delegates to the MethodlBt general conference there were only about 50 present when the Rev. Dr. Carman took
the chair Ihla morning. The feature
of the session was an advance of |50
per annum  ln  the minimum   amount
to be paid tor ministers' salaries.
It was recommended that the salary
of married ministers shall In future
be not less Ihan $800 per annum, exclusive of horse keep, parsonage, etc.,
and for a single minister not less than
$500, and a probationer not less than
$400, thus reporting an Increase of $50
In each case. The resolution was
unanimously agreed to.
Experienced    Politicians    Puzzled    to
Forecast Outcome of Embroglio
or Promise a Quorum.
Havana, 8ept. 28.���With the Cuban
cougress meeting within a few hours
to consider the resignation of President Palma, even the most experienced politicians are unable to predict
what action will be taken or whether
even a quorum will be secured. It Is
practically certain that the president
Is steadfast in his determination to
retire, despite the efforts of the leaders of the Moderate party to induce
him to reconsider tlie matter. His per
sonal elfects at the palace are ready
for removal and his family are report
ed to be about to depart for Matanzas.
The Liberals held a meeting this
morning to determine finally whether,
they would participate ln the session
of congress. Without them a quorum
is impossible.
There Is little doubt that congress
if It meets at all will fail in the attempt to devise means io defy American intervention. This will be followed possibly this afternoon by the proclamation of a temporary government
under Secretary Taft and the landing
of forces from the American war
Senator Zayas, leader of the Liberal
parly, is rejiorted this morning to
have notified Secretary Taft that the
Cuban government had issued orders
to shoot him (Zayas), J. G. Gomez,
.1. M. Gomez, Demetrio Castillo, and
C. J. Velczin, the moat of Princlpem
caBtle. It is not believed that the government will dare resort to such e_>
Ireme measures.
Havana, Sept.'28.���The leading Moderate Liberals and national leaders
conferred from last night until early
tills morning and decided to yield
anything and everything ln order to
avoid .Intervention. It now appears
that there IS no doubt that there will
be a quotum at the meeting of congress today. Brigadier General Fun-
ston went aboard the United States
flagship Louisiana this morning and
conferred with Captain Couden, commander of the naval forces and other
naval officers. The general said ho
was ready for whatever occurred and
was simply  awaiting orders.
Havana. Sept. 28���Prominent Mod
orates declare that they are willing
to accept anybody, even Pino Guerra,
ns candidate for president rather than
Incur Intervention. Others, Including
Vice President Mendeno Ca|>ot, say
they believed that the United States
are determined on intervention in any
case, whether President Palma's resignation Is accepted or otherwise.

King Leopold Corrects
Weird Story of Romance and Misfortune of Sister of the King
of Belgium and Congo.
Urussels, Sept. 28.���King Leopold
has made haste to deny the reports
tbat have lieen current for several
weeks regarding the alleged death of
his sister, the Insane Empress Char-
lotta, widow of the Ill-fated Emperor
Maximilian of Mexico. Though some
persons do not hesitate to cast doubt
upon His Majesty's denial it may be
stated authoritatively that the empress
in not dead. But she is so ill Just
now that only faihl hopes are entertained of her recovery.
The atory of the poor. Insane empress has often been told, but the tragedy of her life is so interwoven with
one of the most thrilling stories of New
World history that lt will bear a repe-
tlon at the present time, when It is but
a matter of a Bhort time, perhapB of
days, until her earthly miseries are
relieved by death.
Born a princess, and educated to
wear a crown, Charlotta has passed
forty of her sixty-five years within the
walls of an asylum for the Insane.
Married at 17, a queen at 24 and a
lunatic at 26, she was bereft of her
father, husband, empire and reason ln
the short space of eighteen months,
and then, by the Irony of fate, forever
banished from human memory. Her
career was almost klnetoscoplc In the
rapidity of its changes���promising in
its inception, magnificent in its rise,
pathetic, dramatic, tragic ln its decline
and fall.
Although Charlotta was more potential in Mexican history during her
short reign In that country than was
her imperial husband himself, the
records of that time Ignore her efforts,
belittle her achievements and refer to
her endowments ot executive ability,
political sagacity, mental culture and
strong womanly character in the most
impersonal and incidental manner. As
a matter of fact lt was her regal training, her dominant spirit, her constant
Insistence, which prevailed over the
weak, vacillating, easily Influenced
aud almost efflmlnate character of the
Emperor Maximilian.
Charlotta was exactly 24 years of
age. Maximilian 32. when their eyes
In-held for the first time the land
across the water where they hoped to
regenerate a nation. Their entry Into
the City of Mexico was a triumphal
.me. The splendors of their court were
unprecedented, for Charlotta knew well
how to be an empress. But the
Mexicans fought bravely for their freedom, the United States interfered, and
Napoleon was ordered to withdraw his
troops. Here again Charlotta was
dominant. She would go herself to
France and Intercede with the Emperor Napoleon.
What could be more pathetic than
the spectacle of the girl empress pleading with the Emperor of Prance and
the Pope of Rome for the means and
soldiers to save from ruin the empire
of her husband, at a time when Maximilian had been already many weeks
dead. Charlotte's ambition and pride
wass crushed, her heart broken. Young,
beautiful, ambitious, loving, on the
very threshold of youth and hope, Bhe
was seized and torn from the world by
the relentless hand of unreason, and
cast Into the midnight of utter blank.
For forty years she bus been banished to an oblivion that ts worse than
death. Those who recall her to mind
ae a proud and Imperious beauty, would
fall to recognize her today, all bent
and broken, her snow-white hair framing a race waxy white ln complexion
and deeply furrowed with lines of grief
and pain.
She resides in the old royal castle ot
lloui-lioiit, a few hodrs drive from
lliiissi-ls. Since she entered this retreat she has been seen by no ono outside of her household, which is conducted tn an Imperial manner. Every
month of the year Charlotta holds
iiilmli- court. She presents the members of her household with gifts, which
are formally received���the pictures
taken from the walls of the palace are
presented, nnd then the following day
nre restored to their places���merely
to indulge her demented fancy.
Spacious grounds surround the palace and here the Insane empress drives
about frequently In her coach of state,
with her cnvallers In attendance, Here
too, she sometimes wanders among the
flowers, planning Improvements, as
she did about the grounds of Chapulte-
pec, iu Mexico,
King  Leopold  has  reason   to  hope
that the life of his sister will be prolonged, and that she will not succumb
to her present Illness, for her death
will give rise to no end of complication with the reigning house of
Austria, in consequence of the disappearance of her vast fortune, which is
believed to have been wasted ln its
entirety in the Congo schemes of her
brother, guardan and trustee, King
First    Steps in Cashier's    Career    ef
Montreal, Sept. 28.���Betting on the
races was the cause of the downfall
of J. S. Cather, the Bank of British
North America clerk who disappeared
on Monday with about $25,000 of the
bank's moaey. The direct cause of his
detection was a bet he made of $3000
on a New York race which he lost.
Hitherto his bets have been more modest, but this was apparently a desperate effort to regain what he had lost
and square his books.
The loss came to the ears of the
city detective and he Informed tbe
bank authorities. The latter Immediately took Cather out of the teller's
box and placed him at other work
pending investigation ror the purpose
of ascertaining if there was anything
It was while ln Ihis work that Cather learned that the city detective had
him under surveillance. He skipped,
going at once, it is said, to New York.

Judgment Given by Mr. Justice Duff
In Nelson 4 Fort Sheppard vs.
Porto Rico.
A very important judgment was received by the local registrar of the
supreme court this morning, probably
the last delivered by Mr. Justice Duff
as a puUne judge of the supreme court
of British Columbia.
In February last at the winter sit-
tings of the supreme court in Nelson,
Justice Duff presiding, the Nelson M
Fort Sheppard Hallway Co. brought
suit for damages against the Porto
Rico Lumber Co. for the manner ln
which the latter eujoyed its rights aa
lessee of timber limits belonging to
the railway company. A. H. MacNelll,
K. C, appeared for the plaintiffs; W.
A.  Macdonald,   K.  C,  for  defendants.
A supervisor, W. J. Hllligoss, had
been put on the land by the railway
company, according to agreement, to
see that certain undertakings contained in the lease were fulfilled. He was
to be an Impartial person, "exercising
an Independent Judgment"
Mr. MacNelll contended that the supervisor's orders had been disobeyed
to the detriment of the plaintiffs. Mr.
Macdonald contended that tho super
visor had far exceeded his authority;
that he was In no sense an Impartial
person, and that Manager Dewar of
the lumber company had quite properly disregarded his instructions.
His lordship agrees with Mr. Mac-
.donald on all points. The judgment
Is as follows
"I have come to the conclusion that
the supervision to be exercised by the
person appointed under clause 1 of the
agreement of May 28, 1902, applies
only to the manner of cutting and
measurement; lt does not, I think, put
the defendant company under the control of that person with respect to
Ihe timber to bo removed, or the time
when It shall be removed. It follows
that Hllllgoas exceeded his powers in
giving the directions contained In the
notices of June 9 and 27, respectively.
"I also think that the stipulation
contained in that clause requiring the
defendant company not to leave uncut
timber which the supervisor shall
think fit for cutting applies to the termination of the lease only, and conse
quently that no breach of that stipulation has occurred.
- find that in sending the notices
referred to , Hllligoss did not act on
the exercise of an Independent judgment, but upon what be conceived to
be the view of Scott as to the interests of the plalntlfr company; that he
was appointed with the expectation
that he would act tn the Interests ol
the plaintiff company, and that 8cott
communicated his views to Hllligoss
in the expectation that he would act
on them. I may add, that having regard to the relations ot Hllligoss aud
his family to the plaintiff company,
aud to the Indications of personal
character afforded by the appearance
and conduct In the witness box of Hllligoss and 8cott respectively, I cannot
bring myself to suppose that ln the
circumstances existing here Hllllgoas
would exercise an Independent judgment.���Lyrnan P. Duff, J."
Ab the Porto Rico Lumber company's lease expires In about three
months an appeal would appear futile.
Railway Companies Obiect
to Assessment
Important Issue Raised Before   at t
of Revision���Rateable Value oi
Rights of Way.
The session of the court of revision
held ln Nelson yesterday was tbe most
important ever beld in Nelson, and
was the occasion of the raising of an
Issue of great Importance in almost
every district of the province. It was
doubtless with such an Issue ln contemplation that the attorney general
selected an eminent legal practitioner, R. S. Lennie, to act as revising
Throughout British Columbia railway companies enjoy to a great degree immunity from taxation ln respect of their holdings, although their
land, grants are gradually becoming
By the School Act of 1905, boards
of school trustees were required to
raise money and were given the right
to assess all property ln their districts,
no exemptions being provided.
R. A. Renwlck assessed all such
property ln hla district at $10,000 a
mile for right of way and improvements. Against his assessment four
companies appeal, the C. P. R. and B.
C. Southern, represented by W. A
Macdonald, K. C, and N. * F. S-, and
Bedlington and Nelson, represented
by A. H. MacNelll, K. C. Mr. Ren-
wick appeared In person-
Mr. Renwlck contends that the purpose for which the rights of way are
held and Improvements made must ba
considered ln assessing their value.
Counsel for the companies contend
that they should be held assessable
only for the Belling price of the material, all of which they describe aa
second class, and that a merely nominal value should be placed upon the
land Included in the rights of way.
Argument lasted all yesterday
morning and afternoon and the court'*
decision was reserved.
Such courts of revision are seldom
officered by barristers. Consequently
Mr. Lennle's judgment will likely establish a precedent.
Tbe Importance of the case is due
not only to tbe prlnclule of assessment Involved, which will apply after
the years of exemption have expired,
to all property of railway companies,
but also to the fact that there are few
school districts tn the province that
are not traversed by rights of way of
railways, either operated or projected, '
and in not a few cases the railway
company's property Is the most valuable in the district. It may easily be

When Trades Unionism came it
came to stay, at least until something
more advantageous to a large section
of the community could be found to
take its i>lace. The right of labor���using the term in the sense in which
that class delight to use it���to organize for promotion of the interests and
rights of the toilers, can no more
righteously be denied than can the
right of employers and manufacturers
to organize for the better protection
of their class Interests. The more or
Jess thorough organization of laboring
men into trades unions has been of incalculable advantage to them in a multitude of ways and the solidarity oi
the interests of labor as a whole is
now guaranteed, Better understandings have arisen between laborers in
different occupations and the encroachments of the unfair and unscrupulous employer have met their match
in equally well organized forces of resistance. Only in a few instances in
Canada can trades unions be held responsible for serious breaches of the
peace and while at times there have
been serious conflicts between the
heads of each of these interests, capital and labor, each has learned salient
lessons and what ts perhaps best of
all, has learned how to respect the
other's lights. Trades Unionism therefore has a recognized standing In the
Dominion and fs one of the forces
that has to be reckoned with In all
matters pertaining to the employment
of labor.
The determination of the recent congress held at Victoria, to organize a
distinct labor parly and cut loose from
the orthodox political parties of Canada is worthy of more than passing
mention. Trades Unionism bus been
an evolution both in England and in
Canada. In England it has attained a
prominence that until this recent manoeuvre was not though possible in
Canada and thc strong minority in the
House of Commons in Great Britain,
which is directly representative of labor interests has no doubt acted as a
spur to the Canadian unionists to take
effective measures to have their voices
and votes count in the legislative halls
of the Dominion.
There should be no one to deny
them this privilege. Their efforts
when wisely directed, will not be so
much to hamper the development of
the resources of the country by capitalistic investment as to secure the
just and righteous apportionment of
the country's wealth. For the most
part, the trades unions have been conciliatory in their methods and when
they have been so, -with rare exceptions they have been met in the same
spirit by the employing and investing
class. Thoughtful men of all classes
have therefore come to recognize iii
organized labor and organized busi-
ncss enterprise, the two principal factors in the conservation  of the coun
try'., prosperity. They may safely be
trusted to work out the economic salvation of the country so far as fhe interests of these two classes, somewhat
similar and always wholly interdependent, are concerned.
It Is refreshing to find that the
Trades and Labor Congress in recent
session at Victoria, refused to adopt
the extreme socialistic theories and
platforms which it was attempted to
foist upon them. The line of cleavage
between the species of socialism
which is so characteristic of British
Columbia, and trades unionism is now
clearly defined and there need be no
longei any misunderstanding as to the
influence of either. The overwhelming vote by which the socialistic domination was rejected leads to the conclusion that the strong men who are
doing the thinking and leading among
the laboring classes are not to be deluded by the extreme and fanatical
theories which dominate a certain class
of demagogues in the laboring element.
Canada is after all, too sane to be
seriously or for any length of time,
misled by the red flag revolutionary
and dissension breeding vaporings of
the class conscious socialist. Proof of
thii is easily forthcoming in the apparent fact that socialism per se ls
not as strong as it was at the trades
congress held in Kamloops four years
ago. At that meeting the extreme
views of the socialist wing disgusted
the thoughtful and educated among
the delegates and the result has been
a more careful watching of the affairs of laboring men by those who
are holding their confidence as leaders. The action of the congress this
year is conclusive. Even if the provincial congress decides to adopt the
socialistic platform, as has been intimated may be the case, the effect will
only be to segregate the province and
force it to try conclusions within its
own borders as between the conflicting interests of employer and employ.-d. We hope there are yet left
enough sane minds direr-ting the counsels of the laboring class to decide for
the more temporate, rational and commendable fairness of the trades union
As for the decision to form a new
and distinct party alienated from the
orthodox parties we shall discuss that
feature again.
The announcement of the nomination of Willhim Randolph Hearst by
tho Democratic state convention ar
Buffalo on Wednesday night, for tho
governorship of the state of Xew York
cam" almost as a surprise to the Canadians who have thought themselves
slightly in touch with the politics of
America. Jerome's defeat of the
Tammany forces in Xew York city,
and the unblemished record of his administration in the various offices
which he administered, together with
his entrance Into the arena of state
politics with the avowed purpose of
defeating the "disgraceful" political
methods in vogue, taken together with
his overwhelming defeat In the convention will make people open their
eyes. .Just what were the sinister influences at work which placed Hearst
in nomination will not be known for a
few days albeit they will leak out in
time, it may be, as one American
Democratic paper of influence recently
stated, that ft might be considered
wise to slate Hearst for governor In
order to show the people what a farce
he is and thereby forever defeat his
clamorous attempts to obtain the
presidency, but wc doubt If this was
the reason for his nomination.
Certain ft fs thnt his nomination has
at this early date split the Democrats
in Xew York state and spread dissatisfaction among the strongest -supporters of the party. Two of the leading newspapers of the Democratic side
have already announced their desertion of the Democratic party and there
will be many more to follow. The
Union and Advertiser of Rochester
has declined to support Hearst, while
the Rochester Morning Herald, a livelong Democratic paper, announces its
independences and urges the election
of Chas. E. Hughes.
Hearst as a candidate would seem to
people on this side of the line as a
I-olitical Impossibility. The heir of untold millions, publsher of the yellowest
ut yellow journals, socialist, firebrand
and egotist as he has always proclaimed himself, not in these words of
course, but none the less in fact, there
must be some esoteric explanation of
the incident of his nomination.
It would be foolish, however, to predict his defeat as the same forces that
could secure his nomination can secure his election. It will be a sad-commentary on the political purity of the
people of Xew York state if, after the
choice materia! from which they might
have made selection, they place on
their state throne a man of the imlit-
ical character of William Randolph

Hon. Mr. Oliver has returned from
England whither he went to look into
the affairs of the immigration department of the Ottawa government. After attempting the rehabilitation of his
agent W. T. R. Preston in the confidence of the people of Canada it is announced that important changes are
to be made in the methods of the department and the methods of the
Xorth Atlantic Trading company are
to be discontinued. This is a creditable move tut why should so much
mud be thrown at those who exposed
the shams and frauds of this company

The Daily Canadian
Doubtful if He Will Build the V., V. &
Seatllo, Sept. 28.���Contracts will be
let within a few dayB for the construction of the first 50 miles of the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern, from New
Westminster eastward up the FraBer
river. Hids for the work are now being asked  by the Hill engineers.
It Ib expected by Hill officials that
the entire system of the Victoria, Vancouver _ Eastern will be under construction during the coming winter,
and work will be rushed as rapidly as
poulbls, Contractors are pushing the
line westward to reach Orovllle, from
which point the road turns northward
Into  liilils.li  Columbia,
President James J. Bill of the Great
Northern made a statement to the
Wall Street Journal's Chicago correspondent a few days ago wherein he
declared that his new Canadian line
would be 800 miles ln length and
would be built Jointly by the Great
Northern and  Northern  Pacific.
Railroad men, accepting this as official, do not believe that President
Hill meant to refer to the Victoria,
Vancouver & Eastern. This road will
he approximately -00 miies ln length.
Hetween Crow's Nest Pass, where
tho Canadian Pacific crosses the Ilnck-
ies, and Hill's pass, in this country,
the Hill engineers have never found
a satisfactory railroad route. It Is
seriously doubted by railroad men
whether Hill Intends to connect the
Victoria-, Vancouver & Eastern with
the line lie proposes to build west
from Winnipeg.
The 800 miles of line he says he will
build would carry the road through
the rich grain growing region and permit delivery of grain for deep water
shipment at Duluth. The two feeders
would tap Canada, and the railroad officials do not believe the Hill plam
contemplates any early completion of
the line through to the coast. The
Great Northern could be used indefinitely as a connecting link.
will then proceed to select their candidates and to provide the machinery
for their election on the basis of the
platform of principles of the congress."
It Will be observed that Mr. Draper's
understanding of the {lowers of provincial executives is somewhat different from the explanation recently appearing in a local paper���(Ed. Canadian.)
Who  Is Right?
P. M. Draper, secretary and treasurer of the tradcB and labor congress of
Canada, was in Winnipeg, on Tuesday
last, havoing stopped over on his return from the annual convention of
the congress at Victoria, 13. C, recently held and of which Secretary Draper
spoke as follows: "The most Important decision of the congress was that
to form a labor party which shall be
distinct from both existing political
partleB and also from the socialist
party of Canada.
"The congress, as a legislative body,
has plenty of work to accomplish at
present. However, I believe that a labor party can be formed In Canada
similar to that now in Great Britain.
It Is the intention to Initiate the movement by having it developed through
the provincial executives. Of course
they will receive their instructions
from the general executive officers to
summon a provincial convention. When
Ihis convention Is assembled and
rendy for business the congress will
step aside and Ihe provincial delegates
Heinie Takea Heavy Bonds on Franklin Camp���Ruahing  Railway.,
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Grand Forka, Sept. 28.���Soma valuable information has been gathered regarding the construction ot the Kettle
Valley line railway up the North Fork.
It is stated that by the time the snow
flies the Kettle Valloy lino will have
completed the first 20-mile extension
up the north fork. The character of
the work done has heen excellent and
no finer roadbed can be found anywhere In the West, and as the work
only started in June the contractors
have made a good record. Trains will
lie running to Franklin camp by November, 1907, and it Is predicted that
as a high grade producer Franklin
will excel any other camp in the province. The grade from Grand Forks to
any other of the mines in Franklin
camp will not exceed 1 per cent. At
present only a few operators who
know the camp are picking up the
various properties. Helnze, the well
known operator of Unite, Mont., has
now under bond no less than 24 claims
in this camp.
The McKinley mine is now proven
to a depth of 500 feet and diamond
drills are now working at Ihe llanner
property, and every claim owner in
the camp is using every endeavor to
put his property on. a shipping basis
by the time the rails will be laid to
the camp next fall.
The contractors of the Kettle Valley
line extension up the North Fork are
making arrangements to establish
winter camps between Grand Forks
and Franklin camp for the purpose of
hauling supplies of provisions and distributing them along the line of railway while the snow is on the ground,
and will thus avoid the necessity of
hauling supplies to the works over the
bail roads next spring. This system
will expedite the work much next summer, as no delay need be caused on
account of the roads.

Montreal, Sept. 28.���Detectives have
so far been unable to lay hands on the
man who killed the Italian ln a house
on Chatham street. They have, however, discovered the dead man's name,
Tony Picieruo, and have likewise established that the probable cause of
the shooting was jealousy on the part
of inn,-|Iht Italian named Mandano,
with whom ho lived and with whose
wife Plcierao is said to have been intimate.
Mandano, his wife and two children
have disappeared and the police have
been unable to secure any trace whatever of them.
