Eighty-four Days in the Awful Solitude
of Arctic Winter.
Calcutta, Fob. 13.���News from Sven
Anders Hedln, the Swedish traveller,
who last year started from Chinese
Turkestan on a Journey of exploration
lo Tibet, bas reached here. Hedln, who
when he sent off his courier, had already explored 840 miles of unknown
country, said he hoped to reach the monastic city of Shlgatse. 130 miles from
Lhasa, at the end of February. The
geographical and geodetic results of the
expedition are already exceptionally
rich. The explorer lost his whole caravan of animals, but not a single man,
and all the maps und collections were
saved.. Hedln discovered many unknown mountain ranges, rivers and gold
fields, and travelled K4 days ln tbe solitude on arctic winter, uot Beelng a
single Tibetan.
Hedin's report concludes: "The Journey Is the m09t wonderful I have made
ln Asia In my 22 years of travels."
Bishop Carmlchael Hold* That Hewever
DMlrablc Church Union to Vield
EpiKopat* Menna Diahonor.
Montreal, Feb. 13.���Bishop Carmlchael, in an address to the American
���ynod on the questiou of church union,
strongly upheld the suceaslou ot the
Episcopate, and declared that government by convenience and utllty would
reduce the government of the church
to tb* level of a railway time-table.
lt waa no doubt on theae ground*, he
concluded, culminating ln the reallia-
tlon of a great truit, the tbe bishop*
of tbe Anglican communion made tbe
���acceptance of tbe historic episcopate
one of tbe necessary conditions of any
scheme of organic union tbat might be
considered by tbe different consulting
communions of which ahe was willing
to form one.
Tbe bishop reduced the basis of possible union to the heart or core of what
they believed to be the primary divine
truat committed to all Christian age*,
namely: (1) The Holy Bcriptures of the
Old and New Teataments; (2) the
Apoatles and Nl-cene creed*; (3) the
two sacraments, baptism and the Supper of the Lord; and (4) the historic
Episcopate. ,
All these things the bUhops of the
Anglican communion regarded bb a
tru*L They could no moro surrender
the epl��cop��te than ��urrender the
creed*, for though peace and unity be
precious, honor Is more precious, nnd
peace without honor la either peace won

The secretary read a letter from F. H.
Eaton on behalf ot the Victoria board
of trustees, regretting that the board
could not *end a representative, but expressing great Interest and hopes for
profitable aud pleaaant deliberations.
A. Robinson, superintendent of education, alBo regretted hi* inability to be
present, and suggested that luspector
OilllB belnvlted to attend.
Many other letters from city nnd
rural boards expressed regret at not
being able to send representative*.
On motion of Mr. Peebles, inspector
Stewart waB seated as a member of the
convention and responded briefly.
The first resolution was then presented by F. W. Swannell aB follows:
Resolved, that the abolition of the
written entrance examination at Christmas would be advantageous to the high
and public schools of the province���Nelson hoard.
The resolution was seconded by >\ ���
lt was opposed by D. P. Kane, of Kaslo, who thought It would keep the attendance at high schools ln small cities
unduly low, and that accordingly action
should be deferred.
W. P. Argue also opposed; he thought
It would interfere seriously with the
grading of public schoolB, which ls necessary In Vancouver twice a year. He
thought, however, that an option should
be allowed to board* of trustees.
Mr. Hodgson followed, opposing on the
ground of hardship to pupil* In rural
schools wh&jnlgbt lose a whole year for
a very small margin.
J. J. Dougan agreed In recommedlng
an option.
H C. Hannington agreed with the
resolution, and thought the apeclal case
of Vancouver should not govern.
Mr. Floyd thought no rule could be
made applicable everywhere. He
thought for the sake of the largo number of pupils who proceed no farther
than the entrance examination, there
should be a second opportunity in tho
Mr. Coot, of Chlllwack, supported the
resolution; he thoughl high schools
with only one teacher could not handle
a second Junior class.
Mr. Peebles opposed ony change. He
thought there had been too great haste
to establish small high school*, and
that their lntereat should not govern
the provlnoe.
P. R. McDonald, on behalf ot Ross
land, supported the resolution. lie had
no admiration for haste ln educational
Mr. Uibiwn also favored tho resolution.
Inspector Stewart aald that tlie department would gladly abolish tbe
winter entraaoe examinations tf lt would
meet general needs and desires. He
was certain that tho change would be
beneficial to high -schools.
Suggestions were made for the resolution to exclude cities of the first class,
and also for giving achool boards the
option of one or two examination* in
the year.
F. W. Swannell, replied opposing
J. J. Dougan moved, -seconded by Mr.
Nunn, that winter entrance examinations he left optional with school boards.
It was pott,ted out that the option, tf
taken by the board of a high school centre, might tte defeated by an influx of
pupils front surrounding district*.
Dr. Arthur thought the benefit of the
change would be as great to public a*
to high schools
The amendment was then withdrawn,
and the original motion was put. resulting: Aye, 17; No, 26.
As V. W. Odium and J. J. Dougan
voted against the resolution which personally they favored, a remark was
made: "I know a lot of men who are
Liberals but vote Conservative."
The convention reassembled shortly
after 2.
The second resolution: "Resolved
that the government be urged to have
more frequent Inspection of rural
schools.���Rossland board," was repudiated by the Booslsnil board in whose
name it stood but was sponsored by
Messers Hodgson and Kane.
H. C. Hannington remarked that he
had been told by Inspectors that their
cheir work waa In "rural schools.
Inspector Stewart agreed with the
resolution and fcped that it might bave

of more InBjiectorS.
With a verbal change, suggested by
Mr. Hannington. adding a request for
more inspectors tor the sske of efficiency, the resolution was adopted unanimously.
The third resolution: "Resolved, that
no changes be made In the curriculum
unless due notice be given.���Rossland
board," wa�� proppoaed by Mr. Gibson.
It was agr ted that ln nearly all cases
A year's notloe should be given. The
resolution wa* then carried unanimously.
The resolution from the Spall uhcheen
board: "Resolved, tbat the salaries of

tbat school funds provided by the government and by -die municipality, be
placed with tbe school board and be by
them disbursed. ��� Surrey municipal
board," waa presented by J. J. Dougan
on behalf of the Surrey board. Mr.
Dougan remarked that the ground was
really covered by resolution last year,
but had ao tar had no result
Mr. Peebles urged that resolutions be
forwarded, preferably while the legislature ls not ln session, tbat greater attention might be secured for them.
Tbe resolution was then dlscusssed in
detail. T. M. McNeish strongly advocated and was supported by J. W. Nunn,
who aald that the system proposed was
actually ln practice in Femle, but
thought January 81 st waa unneces-*
sarily early for the purpose.
F. W. Swannell dlscribed In detail
the financial relations between tbe
board and citv council of Nelaon, which
were generally approved, namely, that
the board draft* Its estimates, pays its
secretary and draws on the -council.
The resolution wah then defeated almost unanimously.
Other sessions will be held this evening and tomorrow.
Property Exchanges Get Busy In Capital City.
Victoria, Feb. 13.���What might be
termed a romance of real estate ln Victoria reached consumotlon, for the present, at al events, on Saturday. About

means, for the sum of 112,000.
Within a few days be was enabled to
make 26 per cent, profit on hla buy by

Trained of any Choir Ever Visiting American Metropolis.
New York, Feb. 13.���A musical event
of importance and unusual interest was
the appearance In this city last night
of the Mendelssohn Chorus of Toronto
of 220 voices in a Joint concert with the
Pittsburg Orchestra of 60 musicians.
Carnegie hall was crowded with an au-
diecne which, from first to last, expressed its approval by marked enthusiasm.
A. S. Vogt, as conductor of the choir,
was given a most cordial welcome and
shared the honor* of the evening with
Emll Paur, conductor of the orchestra.
Tbe work of the orchestra was familiar to and appreciated by last, night's
audience but the singing of the Toronto
musical organization was heard for the
first time, it came ln the nature of a surprise and wa* a decided triumph to Mr.
Vogt'* ability as a director. The choir

moat thoroughly and carefully trained of
any that has ever sung ln New York.
Last night's concert waa the first of tbe

R>*ports of  Personation at  Lat*  Provincial Election.
(Special to Tbe Dally Canadian.)
Orand Forks. Feb. 13.���Is John Mclnnis, the Socialist member elect for this
riding ln the provincial bouse legally
elected, and are tbe reporta that are
now current to the effect that the serious crime of personation was practised
at tbe polling station at Phoenix, and
that undue influence In Its broadest
form waa practised during his election
at Grand Forks, correct, ls the question
now bothering tbe electors ot this district. The above reports have been
common street talk here ever since tbe
election and appear to be gaining
strength aa time -advances.
Considerable consternation has existed here among tbe Hindoo population
over tbe fact that one of ther head
men, an Interpreter named Naranglingh.
was arrested on Saturday by the city
police charged with stealing MO from
Another Hindoo named Budlo Singh. It
appear* that the accused in thi* case
had been ln the habit of extracting sumB
of money from the band of Hindoos here
for various purposes, on one occasion
collecting 15 for alleged police protec-
l.ion. In the present case be viciously
attacked the private prosecutor in thi*
case and being an old man, while the accused was a burly fellow, he bad little
difficulty in overpowering tbe old man
and between beating him and pulling
bis whisker*, compelled the old Hindoo
to give up his money, which the cunning
rascal at once deposited in the bank to
his own .account.
For the offence as charged above the
accused was sentenced to six month's
st hard labor ln the gaol at Nelson, he
having ln the meantime paid back tbe
$40 to his old victim. There appears to
be a general feeling of satisfaction
among the Hindoos here that their
whisker-pulling comrade haB been sent
to gaol.

today tbat there were 135 or 160 passengers on board the steamer when site left

It was learned that the Larchmont carried a crew of 40 men, ot whom only

It Is time for Canada to begin to feel
chesty. There ure just three things
necessary to the development of a greal
nation. The first of these Is unlimited
natural resources; the second Is a system of political economy which will fully grasp and properly manage the re-
���sources of a nation, and lhe third is
capable stalesiiiaiwhl|i free from self-
��eoking anil favoritism and fired with
tbe spirit of patriotic pride ami possibility.
Canada today lucks only lhe last two.
Her natural resources are tlie foremost
in the world. It Is beginning to be roc-
ognlzod that only the surface of the
treat and varied natural wealth of the
Dominion has been scratched. What Is
Bt 111 held ln leash by the coy goddess
of nature is suspected but the evelilcnce
which is accumulating everyday ls convincing capital and immigration in every
nation ln the world that the coming
field for every form of development Is
What has been distinctively lacking
In the Dominion of late years has been
a eplrit of national pride and of national
ambition. We have tool ong toadied to
\ho United States.. Tho investment of
a few millions In ibis country by American speculators has made m,worship-
per* at the shrine of tbe United Suites
Idol. We have coaxed and wheedled
American capital tllll we have become
the laughing slock of the shrewd American, wbo looks at a good proposition
and then dictates his own terms and
tha oonditlon* under which it shall be
developed. A nation at our aouth that
taa become treat because of a certain
political policy, which has been ruthlessly enforced, utterly regardless of the
sentiments and political rights of other
nations has frightened Camilla Into a
condition of fearful admiration lhat has
worked us untold harm.
What has that policy been? It has
been a policy of protection; a policy
which has selfishly sought the Interests
of the United States and which has
smiled complacently on the efforts of
other nations. Theh United States has
protected lis industries with a tariff
which bus exceeded llie tariffs of all
other countries; which has brought to
Us factories and farms the pick and
choice of (he emigrating nations of the
world; which has satisfied these far beyond their expectations and which has
enriched lis corporations till iho names
of millionaires are numbered by the
Canada, on the other hand, has flirted
with such questions as reciprocal trade
relations, annexation, absorption Into
the union and half a score of other indigested schemes of political aud international relationship.
While Canada lias resource* that surpass the wealth of Indes those of the
American union are already beginning
to bo exausted. While Canada lias hud
to await discovery the United Slates lins
forged ahead, and Unlay hns forced its
wares Into the markets of every country known to commerce. What the
United Slates has done Canada might
have done, but the Dominion haB been
crippled by a policy of Inactivity and
political truckling, which has delayed
Its development and prominence at least
flftceen years.
The national policy of Sir John Macdonald, If It had beon eneregtlcally carried luto effect, would have made Canada already a strong competitor in tho
markets which havo been captured by
tho United States.. It was 81r John's
policy to place Canada in the front
ranks as a nation on tho American con-
ilnent. He would have done tills without In any way Imperilling Us attachment to the mother country or lessening the fostering care of the mother
country over us. In doing so he would
not only have made the leading peoplo
In tho West but would have materially
advanced the interests of Iho mother
What has been accomplished Blnce his
party was pushed out of power by the
specious pleadings and deceiving prom-
The Dtily Canadian
lsea of the f.lhfcns( parly ha* amount-id
10 nothlnii but disappointment, and not
so very much of that. The tinkering
with tariffs, the incapacity of the administration, the enormous grafting
schemes have all resulted in a stagnation which must be apalllng to those
who have ln the least degree the
prophetic instinct pi* the faculties of
Speaking of llrlllsh Columbia alone
we havo lu this province the fuel, the
minerals and tlie culti viable lands, which
ln their combined productivity, are cap.
able of sustaining uu enormous population. In addition to these we have ln
every part of the province tlie natural
energies which need only to be liar-
iiassetl and transferred to the point of
consumption which, In their possibilities
ol transformation into heat, light and
power, place ub in a position to compete with any country iu the world and
outclass tliat country.
What we need is a federal government which will be at once seized of
thu capability of the country, institute
measures which will lead to the utilization of what nature has so richly endowed us with, protect those who labor
and In every way encourage the development of the resources of the land
with a defiant attitude toward those who
have too long laughed ub to scorn.
The public ownership of public iintlll-
ties ls to become one of the Isbuob in
future political campaigns. The Liberal
party has forcibly declared Its opposition to this policy. It iiiainiain that pap-
fed institutions and favored industries
are the surest methods of a nation's
progress. The transfer of tlie natural
resources to the ownership of the people and their capable and honest management for the public is the surest
guaruntee of tho nation's weal. Trusts
will thus be obviated and the evils
which bave made American methods
u stink in tbe noBtrils of their own nation will have no place. The leader of
the Conservative party has given a clear
deliverance on his altitude on these
issues and strong members of the Conservative party have pronounced themselves upon these important questions
The next fight will be along such lines
as contemplate the possibilities of greatness that await Canada, and the Conservative party, if the Liberals are to
be believed, will have to become tho
suviours of their nation.
The next great political fight in Canada will be for the dethronment of the
Liberal machine evidence of the corruption and Iron rule of which multiplies
every day. One need only rend the stlr-
ing words of ,Mr. Lavergne lo be convinced that the machine knows no scruples and demands absolute subjection
from the members of the Liberal party.
Fortunately there is a growing disposition to revolt, even on the part of
staunch members of the Liberal party,
and when the next Dominion election
takes place the rout will be complete.
Advices received by The Dally Canadian from many parts of the province indicate that though tho disappointment
of the hard-worked Liberals over tho result of the elections was great, there
is a general feeling of satisfaction at
the return of tho government. The heat
of the campaign and the natural desire
for party victory were much in evidence
but calm reflection cools the judgment,
and on the whole, the continuance of
stable government, without the anxieties
a change of rulers would bave caused,
are eminently satisfactory.
Now that the elections are over it Is
astonishing to find how many of the opposition papers want to be good. Belated penitence Is better than none but
wc have little faith In the majority of
theso promises. Not even the lesson
taught these Irresponsible traducers
by the electors will prove salient and
we expect the opening of tho house to
Immediately demonstrate tho Insincerity of the erstwhile remoscful.
The news of the swearing in ot Hon.
Thos. Taylor of Revelstoke, as a mom-
bet* of the provincial cabinet, will be
received with general satisfaction. Not
only ls Mr. Taylor familiar with politics
but the recognition of the Interior In
cabinet construction ls timely. Only
for the mistaken ideals of a section of
the voters in other constituencies tho
Interior might have received still
further recognition.
The personnel! of the new house ls
nil that could be desired. All are men
of clean political reputation. Kven
llawtliorntliwalte's llttlo Irlo will not be
seriously objected to.
A critic is ii man who couldn't have
done It himself.

The undersigned beg to notify the public that:
Ou and after the ist February, 1907, orders for Coal
I and Wood will only be executed when accompanied by
CASH. This course has been rendered imperative owing
to the largely increasing list of our customers and the
fact that we pay IN ADVANCE for all fuel (including
freight). We find we must either adopt the CASH
I SYSTEM or RAISE the price of fuel���the latter course
j we are reluctant to pursue.

St. Louis, Feb. 13.���Attaches of the
tour courts, ln discussing the Thaw
murder trial ln New York, recalled the
fact that today was the anniversary of
one of the most nted murders that ever
occurred ln St. Louis. It was just 13
years ago today that the entire city
received a shock on learning that Dr.
Arthur Duestrow, son of Louis Dues-
trow, a St. Louis millionaire, had shot
and klled his wife and 3-year-old boy.
The double murder occurred In the
Duestrow home in one of the fashionable sections of the city .
In the trial It was shown that Duestrow was a heavy drinker and was
drunk at the time of the crime. A long
fight was made ln the courts to show
that he was insane. Eminent medical
experts were put on the stand and no
expense was spared to save the accused
man . He was convicted, however, and
sentenced to be hanged and on the afternoon of February 16, 1897, he paid
thc extreme penalty of the law on the
gallows at Union, Mo. Just before his
death Duestrow confessed he was not
Insane and admitted his guilt.

Voted by Parliament
Toklo, Feb. 13.���The national budget
for 1907 passed tbe house of representatives yesterday without the slightest
curtailment. Such an occurence is without precedent since the opening of the
Japanese diet. The powerlessneas of
the opposition ls regarded by many persons here as a bad sign for the revision
of constitutional government In Japan.
The budget of 1907 provides for the
expenditure of $300,000,000 or $60,000,-
000 more than last year, and Is twice
as much as was required to cover all
expenses prior to the Russo-Japanese
