The serious part of Aid. Selous'

Bank   of   England   Reduces   its   Rate   of
Discount���No  Further Stringency
London, Jan. 19.���-The rate of discount of the Hank of Kngiand was re
diiei'ti tram six to live par cent, today.
Tiie reduction was anticipated as the
result of the freah gold arrivals. Mosl
of than ware abaorbed by Lhe bank, and
the return of ca**h  in tlie e ninny sn ma
teri.iih strengthened it. in spite of the
considerable amouni taken by south
America, thai there was no excuse tor
a further prolongation of   the   higher
rate, Which so discommoded trade for
some months past. Kvcu hail the hank
desired to retain a higher rate, It ii-
doiibiful If it could be made effective as
the supply of money in Lombard streei
was so abundant as to be almost for tlu1
moment lu excess of the requirement;^
The discount rate in the open market
fell  tO  4   t-8   per cent.    The  recent   con
iinuai purchases of storing bills Indicated the probability that the gold borrowed from France during the American stringency, would he allowed to
remain fur a time here and the hills renewed. This proved a further luduce
ment for the hank to lower its rate.
The stock exchange already had fully
discounted the Ave per cent, rate und

Opoiiing of Legislature
of Alberta
Progressive Policy Is Foreshadowed-
Coal Deposits Recognized
as Great Asset.
Edmonton, Jan. 10,���The following is
the text of the speech from the throne:
"Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen of the
"I bave much pleasure in welcoming
you to the third session of the first
legl&lature Of the province of Alberta.
"For the degree of material prosperity which has marked the progress oT
this province in a year of great stress
and storm over the whole civilized
world and our exemption from the more
severe features of this crisis, our thanks
arc due to Divine Providence. An extraordinarily severe winter, followed by
a somewhat Inclement summer, foreshadowed widespread distress, hut the
beautiful weather of the autumn
months. I have learned with pleasure,
prevented to a very large extent such
a calamity, As loyal Canadians you will
have observed with pride that during
the financial disturbance which has
spread disaster throughout the world,
while there has been a shortage of capital, both in Alberta and in the more
populous portions of the Dominion, yet
the soundness of the financial institutions of the country has once more been
proved and the forward growth of the
trade and commerce of the Dominion
lias gone on almost unbounded.
"My ministers have taken part during
the recess in two conferences, the one
imperial and the other international, on
education and taxation, which I have
no doubt will have an important influence in the administration of these
branches of the public service. Royal
commissions have heen engaged during
the year In the examination of conditions of the two most important
brandies of trade und commerce iu the
"The agricultural interests of the
province, which are at present supreme
and are likely for many years to remain so. are deeply interested in the
conditions under which meat is marketed, and by the appointment of a commission to examine into these conditions, l have endeavored to arrive nt
that precise knowledge which is the
flrsi postulated* amelioration. Thevaat
coal fields, which come after the wheal
fields, appear to be the largest asset
with Which providence has endowed Alberta. The report of both the commissions will he laid on the table of the
Bouse for your consideration.
"The national wealth of the province,
assisted by the How of Immigration and
capital which continues in spite of the
temporary checks imposed by exceptional weather and monetary conditions,
will, I have no doubt,, develop in the
course   of   a   longer   or   shorter   period
Important manufacturing interests, and
my mini tare have thought It advisable
at the outset of the development to lake
advantage to the best of their ability
of -he experience of elder states by imposing on tliem in their Industrial de
volopmont healthy conditions while it ip
still in  its infancy.
"A lilll will he submitted for youi
consideration providing for the regulation of the conditions of labor. By thus
providing on an assured basis for tliem
the future relations between capital and
labor in this province will be rendered
more cordial from the: outset. If. hns
been admitted In several of the most
industrially advanced of the oountrtei
of Durope that the conditions nndet
which the mining Industry la carried on
render it peculiarly necessary in the in
terests of nil concerned to impose sunn
limit on the hours of labor in this occn
pation. A bill has therefore been pre
pared by my ministers Imposing regulation ln this respect, which, I believe,
will have a happy effect on this, the
most promising of our Infant industries.
"An  act will   be  submitted   for  your
consideration   dealing   with  the  eatab
llshment of a government drainage sys
tern In the province and providing for
the expense incident to Important and
iKcessary works of this description be
ing assebsod against the property benefitted.
"The province has great cause for
UiankfuInesB that neither crime nor
destitution fills an important part of the
outlook at present. Dut from neither
can we hope to he altogether and always exempt. You will be asked to
make financial provision for the establishment of an industrial school for the
better care and instruction of a class of
boys, whose circumstances and character calls for special treatment. Your
approval will he asked for a number of
bills which experience has shown to be
necessary for the better administration
of the affairs of the province, as well as
for a number of amendments to the ordinances of the Northwest Territories
and statutes of the province.
"The public accounts and estimates
will be laid before you at an early date.
"Mr. Speaker and gentlemen of the
legislative assembly, I feel every assurance that these and other measures
brought lo your attention will receive
the mosl careful consideration and that
the same will result in the advancement under God of the welfare and
prosperity of the province."

There is every reason to believe that
by the lirst months of spring tha- wave
aaf expansion, s*> unfortunately broken
by a financial breakdown, will be formed anew. If Kootenay is to share ln
the prosperity that we all expect the
evils that threaten our chief Industries
must be removed. Tbe provincial legislature will remove any dangers that
threaten lumbering, and the return of
prosperity to the prairies will recreate
the market. The lead mining industry
will undoubtedly revive it the price of
the metal advances, but large expenditures such as are necessary for its
prosecution can not and will uot be
made vithout some form of guarantee
of permanency. Therefore all Kootenay
is behind the demand for the only
measure available to ensure such permanency, the continuation aaf the bounty
and the raising of the minimum price a
little nearer to the tariff regulated
American price.

that he would, if elected, "continue to
'boost' for Nelson to the hest of his
ability as he has done for 17 years,"
seems to caaver the ground aa well as
il can he done.
Last night's meeting must he regarded as eminently satisfactory. Nothing
could have been franker or clearer than
Mayor tiilletl's statement of his course
during the last 26 months during which
he has held the office. Before the meeting there were many absurd rumors of
exposures to he made, but when at the
last a vote of thanks to Mayor Gillett
and his colleagues was proposed there
was uot a dissenting voice.
The new aspirants for aldermanic
honors appreciated the situation. No
one offered any specific remedy for the
ally's little troubles hut each pledged
: .n.s. It   fully   lo a  progressive  policy.
The one regrettable feature of the
meeting, though Infinitely amusing, was
the surprising ebullition of Aid. Selous.
As a treat for the gallery it was wholly
admirable. As a discussion of public
issues, if it were so intended, it was
grotesque. The statement of alleged
facts had not even the merit, of accuracy. The most charitable Interpretation is that Aid. Selous, with his Irre-
pressibly youthful enterprise, was essaying the role of public entertainer.
Aid. Selous paid his kindly respects
last night to newspapers ln general aud
'ih,. Daily Canadian in particular, to tha
divenion of his audience. He complains
with evident sincerity tbal he has been
unfairly treated, even inisrepra-senied,
by this paper on the subject of his attitude towards tha- public school necessities. We referred to that matter at
some length while It whb of public in*

hunger for advertising patronage. An

New York, Jan. 10.���An explosion
which the police attribute to the "Black
Hand" occurred early today In a tenement house in east 29th sireet, shattering ihe front of the building, breaking
windows in nearby buildings, and almost causing a panic In the wards of
Hellevue hospital, which are located
on that side of the hospital towards the
building where the explosion occurred.
No one in the building was seriously
injured. The explosion seems to have
been directed toward, the family of
Pierre Onarato. a coal and wood dealer,
whose wife and three children were lu
the building. Onarato slates that on
December 5th he re celved a letter signed "Black Hand" in which he was directed to place $1,000 on the grave of
a certain Italian in Brooklyn cemetery
within a mouth, on penalty of being killed with  all his family.
