The following Is reported to be a summary of the new agreement, but ihis
Is not obtained from any authoritative
source: The ordinary outside laborers
are to receive an advance of 12 1-2 per
cent. The lowest class of labor is to
be paid $2 a day. and this misans lhat
they will henceforth receive $2.25. Tlie
remainder of the outside labor will
have a 5 per cent advance. Blacksmith's helpers will thereby lie Increased from $2.50 to $2.62 1-2. The
blacksmiths themselves will receive
I3.C7 1-2 instead of $3.60 as at present
The contract miners In certain mines
will receive increased remuneration,
but In others where the pay is already
high there will be no advance. This
will tend to that uniformity for which
the leaders of the miners have been
contending. An arrangement Is being
made whereby the principle of the
closed shop will be, ln effect, observed.
New York, May 4.���Strikes among
longshoremen along the water front of
both New York and Brooklyn have become epidemic. Today it Is esUmated

British Cabinet Afraid A
Campbell Binnerman Ministry Arc ia
Quandary���Can't Grant Preference���Daren't Refuse.
London, May 4.���The story behind
the BCenes ln connection with the visit
of the colonial premiers to London is
very different from that given in the
published report of the proceedings and
the public speeches of tbe visitors and
members of the government, lf the
whole truth could be told the Empire
would be revolted by the situation
which has been created by the mori-
bund Liberal government.
It Is hardly a secret that the Camp-
bell-Bannerman ministry has been devoting all its efforts to render the con*
Terence abortive upon all but minor issues. There ls anything but harmony
among the colonial representatives
themselves, but this ls hardly suprislhg
when a freak of fortune brings such men
as Gen. Botha and Dr. Jameson together in the same assembly. Gen.
Botha's public atUtude ls more patrl-
uUc than Uie flag Itself. He came to
London with two demands or requests
ln behalf of the new Boer colony, one
that the two provinces which were
transferred from tbe Transvaal to Natal
be restored, and the other that his government be allowed to raise end equip
a Transvaal force of 40,000 men, who
naturally would be almost entirely
Boers, lf these things are granted he
is willing to meet the home government's view in regard to the demand
for oolonial preference, whereupon
most of the other colonial premiers are
most pressing.
Dr. Jameson and other South African
Englishmen hotly resent Gen. Botha'B
proposals. They are extremely bitter
against the home government for their
unparalleled concessions to their late
Boer enemies. They argue that the
Boer mind Is entirely incapable of appreciating the British government's liberal treatment, which they Interpret as
a sign of weakness only, and these observers affirm that the natives of the
Transvaal are already cherishing Uie
Idea of regaining their independency.
These feelings are so strong in Cape
Colony that a high official of the Cape
government, who is now in I.ondon, openly threatened a few days ago that 11
Gen. Botha'B demands were granted the
other South African colonies would secede from the Empire and whip the
Boers themselves.
Gen. Botha has already been told that
he cannot have the Natal provinces,
but the Bannerman government is still
considering the question of permitting
the creation of a Boer army under the
Brltlah flag. They seem inclined to
grant tbe request under the condition
that the commander shall be an English
officer, and they aro Innocently asking
why the equipment should Include artillery, when the purpose of the force
ls merely to keep order among the native population.
8uch Ib one feature of the colonial
love feaat. Another and a more Important one Is tho bitter controversy
over colonial preference as regurds the
tariff. Prime Minister Sir Henry Camp.
bell-Bannerman considers that It ls his
duty to refuse this under the popular
mandate Involved ln the vote of the
country which placed his party In power. But several premiers of Important
colonies are bo insistent on UUb subject that they hove decided to refuse
to take "no" for an answer. They go
farther. They demand the privilege of
making commercial treaties for (hem-
selves with foreign power., such a.
Canada did virtually ln her commercial
agreement with Oermany two years ago.
Their argument for a reciprocal tariff
with the mother country is that the
schedule can be ao arranged that pricea
of imports In Oreat Britain to consumers will not be materially affected, because the colonies can supply everything which need be taxed nlniost as
cheaply as Is now paid to olher sources
of supply. Free trade within the Empire,
or almost free trade, would not seriously violate the principles of the Liberal
party. But Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman dare not concede what la virtu
ally the chief article of faith In his political opponents. His position Is embarrassing to the point of exasperation,
yet he must preserve an atUtude of loving aollcltude toward these representatives of the Greater Brltlah Empire
while refusing the only thing which they
almost unanimously demand. The matter has already reached an extreme
stage, and It has practically been decided hy a majority of tbe colonial premiers that If the government refuses
any concessions tbey will .after dispersing, issue a Joint protest and appeal
In addresses to the British public.
Such action by representatives of the
test of the F.mpire would put
the greatest humiliation upon the
Bannerman ministry than was
ever inflicted upon a British
government. There is abundant evidence that the feeling ln tbe country
has so completely changed ln the last
15 months that there Is no chance of
their returning to power if a general
election should be held. The Liberal
leaders are fully aware of this. It ls no
Becret that the reason why Winston
Churchill has been appointed a Privy
Councillor Instead of being raised to
cabinet rank waa because the govern*
ment dare not risk an appeal to his
Manchester constituency for his re-election.
Popular Indignation is increasing
agaitisi the government for its parsimony, which is crippling the army and
navy. Tbey bave dismissed, for In-
stlnce, 13,000 men from the Woolwich
Arsenal, and ln response to the labor
protest. Prime Minister Camptsell-Ban-
nerman blandly says that the men can
easily get work at private works, like
the Kynochs or Armstrongs. This has
been investigated with the result that
all auch establishments report that they
are discharging men because the government is not issuing contracts. Reports from Krupps and other German
works and the steel works of the
United States, on thc other hand, show
a great demand for labor, and the men
who have been discharged from Woolwich are emigrating rapidly.
But no amount of public opposition
can affect the government's hold upon
office. No Blow series of by-elections
can imperil their enormous majority
and they can remain in power for another five yeara nnless internal dissensions or very shame induces them to
yield to a popular demand for a fresh
August Nagoreen's Claim for Damages
Settled by Company.

under the Workmen's Compensation
Act for damages for injuries received
by the plaintiff while In the employ of
the defendant I Taylor & O'Shea appeared for the plaintiff. J. A. Macdonald, K. C, and A. D. Whiteside, for the

When court resumed thiB afternoon

he made, the board will meet again to
decide the queation of calling for competitive plan..
A special meeting of the Joint building committee was held In Dr. Arthur's
office last night at 8 o'clock.
There were present Dr. Arthur, A. D.
Emory and W. Irvine, of the school
hoard, and Aldermen Irving and, McMorris, antl City Engineer R. Farror
Mr. Lawrence exhibited elaborate
plans of the grounds In sections. He
estimated that to bring the grounds to
proper level for u play ground, preserving a fall of one foot ln ths�� hundred for
drainage, 3300 feet of cutting and 4500
feet of filling would be required. The
balance of 1200 feet could be taken
from the excavation, the remainder to
be applied for filling on the Ward street
On motion of Dr. Arthur, seconded
by A. D. Emory, Mr. Lawrence's plans
of grading were accepted.
The question of securing competitive
plans wa. then discussed. Mr. Law.
rence submitted an offer to prepare
plan, and specification, for one per
cent of the grow outlay, and to superintend the erection, including lighting
and heaUng, for 2-V4 per cent. He uld
that he had built about 40 schools In
England and New Zealand.
Mr. Lawrence further expressed the
opinion that few reputable architects
would submit competitive plans without
bonuses In the present busy state of the
No definite decision was reached. Tbe
board adjourned to meet Monday at

Stores of Arms Smuggled
Goremment Still Playing with Douma
���Wut Dram Head Court
Martial Abolished.
St. Petersburg, May 4.���A note published In the -semi-official Rossla today
dealing with President Golopln's statement in the Lower House of Parliament yesterday that the war minister
had been notified of the fact that the
abolition of drum head court martial,
was to be discussed, declares the minister was entirely unaware that the
parliamentary committee proposed not
only the abolition of drumhead court-
martial, but that the cases of those
condemned to penal servitude by such
courts should be transferred to the
ordinary -courts.
"This," the note concludes, "Is tantamount to quashing the sentences of
these courts, and claims for the Duma
powers which it does not possess. This
claim deprived the minister of justice
of the possibility of making the reply
which he intended to make."
The Rossia's announcement has again
revived the rumor, of the approaching
dissolution of parliament However, a
cabinet official assured the correspondent of the Associated Pre., that such
action waa not contemplated.
London, May 4.���Russia's Csar and
the Cabal which rules him may well
shudder at the activity ot the revolutionary party, whioh ia plotting to overthrow the present government, for
subatantlal proof of the grim determination of thi. ever increasing army of
citizens to obtain relief from the preaent despoUc administration la found ln
the vast stores of guns and ammunition being rushed into the empire
through Finland. Thousands of pounds
worth ot this contraband has been
seised in the hut few days, and when
It Is considered that the supplies
seised represent only a small portion of
the total shipments, there is reason to
believe that before many years the people of the Cnr'i realm will be supplied
with the means to make a demonstration that will pale all the previous
slaughters for which Russia has won
unenviable note.
Hundreds of clever and vigilant police, equipped with every known resource to combat this blockade running,
haunt the waters through which the
supplies of the rebels are pushed, but
tbey are arrayed against people more
clever than themselves, who.get vast
quantities of arms past them.
One thousand pounds is the value ol
the ammunition which has come into
the hands of the police ln thc north of
England within the last few days.
Vast stores of ammunition have been
seised at Newcastle, the first seizure
being at a house let ln tenements, and
the second In an old stable, to which
a flat cart waa driven In the middle of
the night by three mysterious men.
More than a hundred thousand Mauser cartridges and many thousand
cartridge clips form the total capture
by the Newcastle police. To this must
be added thirty thousand exactly similar cartridges which bave come Into
the possession of the Sunderland police
as the result of raids.
There la evidence of vast traffic in
this contraband ot war. Large numbers ot case, of cartridge, have been
shipped Into the Tyne and the Wear,
where local centres have been established. It Is believed that eimlllar centres have been established at Grimsby
and Edinburgh.

construed as a mobilisation. Nevertheless great activity prevails In the local

Mining Operations Hampered by Prolonged Strike���Quotations en
Stock Market
The coal strike has absorbed Interest
in mining for the week. The Oranby
and Dominion Copper Co.'s smelters
are closed down, and the other, will
have to follow soon unless condlUons
change. The big mines have already
restricted shipments.
In the newer districts, however,
preparations for the summer's work
are going ahead satisfactorily.
The stock market for the paat week
while rather dull at the opening, revived and was quite active during the
laat day or so. Cobalt securities continued heavy, and the Bpokane exchange reports a falling off In business.
The feature of the week's trading was
the great demand for Western OH.
These shares advanced from |1.(0 to
11.80, at which price they remained firm
and in great demand. This advance ls
accounted for by reason of the secretary of the company being sucessful in
securing funds for this organization and
the probability of work commencing on
the property almost at once.
Cariboo McKinney waa also in demand at about two cents above the recent quotations but no. reason can be assigned tor such advance. Rambler Cariboo remained firm and almost unchanged. International Coal was also
very firm at about a cent higher
though tew shares changed hands. Sullivan was inactive and In no demand.
Dominion Copper advanced about tl
per share during the week, with heavy
tradings. B. C. Copper fluctuated only
a point or bo each way and waa almost
unchanged throughout the week.

HcNUIan verses Wheeler
Rossi's Heart Broken.
Milan, May, 4.���Arcangelo Rossi, the
tenor who was with the Conried Opera
company ln Ban Francisco during the
earthquake, and who, aa a result of the
fright he experienced haa not since
been well, endeavored to commit suicide here yesterday. Recently he lost
hla voice. This calamity weighed lo
deeply on his mind that he went crazy
and yesterday he cut out his tongue
wllh a pair of scissors. He was taken
to a hospital In a critical condition. Last
winter In New York Rossi during a performance at the Metropolitan Opera
House broke down and afterwards did
not sing thore.
Tat of Judgment is the Celebrated
Cbtm for Commtuka oa
Sale of Krao.
When court resumed this morning
Mr. Taylor began his argument for the
plaintiff. He urged that the evidence
ot McMillan and Stubbs, contradicted
only by Wheeler, showed that the plain-
US had been given su exclusive right
of sale for 30 days, and that by the defendant's violating the right, he had
lost the commission he would otherwise
have earned.
Mi. Macdonald roes to reply but the -jl
court Intervened, his lordship assuring
the counsel that no reply was needed.
He then delivered judgment as loliows:
"As I intimated daring the course ot
the argument, I think the issue Is a direct one of fact as to the event that
took place ln the Hotel Strathcona.
Apart from that the contract set np by
the plaintiff has I think clearly not been
broken by the defendant With regard
to the question as to the making of
the agreement at the Hotel Strathcona
I Had aa a tact that no auch agreement
waa ever entered Into. That means ot
course that I believe the story of the
defendant and I do not believe the story
of the plaintiff and of Stubbs. I am deciding the caae, as far as Is humanly
possible, enUrely on the evidence of
Uie plaintiff, Stubbs, aud the defendant
A. D. Wheeler; taken of course la conjunction with the documentary evidence
aad the surrounding circumstances. To
find that the defendant A. D. Wheeler
entered into such an agreement as alleged at (be Hotel Strathcona wo-aM ba
to find that at one .particular moment
during this transaction he executed a
volte face It I may use the tenn, of a
most pronounced description. Consistently throughout he insisted that his price
waa one hundred thousand dollars, and
that he wonld give the plaintiff a reasonable chance to sell, the property tor
more than that He went so tar aa to
agree, to give him the assurance, that
when his man was tn a position to make
an examination he would hold off trom .'���_]
sny attempt to sell to other parties dnr-
Ing such examlnaUon; but beyond that ,|
I do not think he ever agreed.
"Then after the alleged arrangement
at the Hotel Strathcona there came two
particular occasions upon which the
plaintiff should have spoken: There ls
a time to speak and a time to keep
silence. When these parties were together at the property, McDowell,
Wheeler and the plaintiff, and the matter was being discussed, I do not say
that the plsinUff tn the presence of McDowell should have reminded the defendant of their bargain, but certainly
he should have reminded Wheeler. Then
again Wheeler wrote that he had discovered that there was no connecUon
between Zwlckey's visit and the previous visit of McDowell then most decidedly it was for the plaintiff to expostulate.
"Another element which leads me to
disbelieve the plaintiff ls the story with
regard to the fee of Winchell, sworn to
be an eminent engineer, and to say that
an engineer of any standing or char
acter would enter Into such an agreement as McMillan alleges Is to my mind
absolutely Incredible.
"As to Stubbs I experience some difficulty. To believe him ls to believe an
utterly incredible story as It appears to
me. As a matter of fact if McMillan's
story was to be believed there wea no
suggestion In the conversation between
him and Wheeler of a consummated (leal
In their Interview at the Strathcona,
and yet apparently without any other
knowledge gained from other quarters
Stubbs approaches McMillan and congratulates him ou a concluded deal. My
own opinion ls that 8tubbs' evidence Is
the evidence of a man to whom certain
thing, have been suggested so frequently and with such a wealth of detail that
he- has finally come to believe them to
bo facts
"I think I need add nothing further
beyond this, that aa I said before I
have endeavored as far as Is humsnly
possible to cut out trom the case and
from my mind all recollections ot the
story told by Paterson and Spry. I am
deciding the case entirely on the evidence of Wheeler, the plaintiff, Stubbs,
and the documentary evidence. I dismiss the action with costs."

Tbe question of Lhe obligation of loyalty tu party in now attracting considerable attention in many parts of Canada,
and party loyalty as a motive of political action [g reoahrtag in some quarters
excessive praise, ia others execessive
Canada, it may be pointed out, haa
not suffered greatly from excessive loyalty to party. Twice the Conservative
party has been driven from office by its
own members. In lfc73 the disclosure of
the fact that the C. P. R. company bad
contributed to Conservative campafgii
funds led to the rout of the party at the
polls. In l&yti defeat was caused by
division of the party over honest difference of opinion.
ln the provinces similar things haw
bapi��ened. The .MercU-r ^ournmem ia
���Quebec fell for open and notorious dis
honesty although Quebec was even then
overwhelmingly Liberal, ln 1&*>*4 thou.��
ands of Ontario Liberals voted to driv*
G. W. Ross from power. In the recen"
campaigu In British Columbia man:-
men who are normally Liberal voted t.
sustain the McBride government for tht
sake of stable and efficient adminlstra
Men divide naturally Into two parties
one conservative, the other e.iiier for 8
change. In old countrb*s were condf

Efficient working of the party system
requires and postulates a certain degree
of stability in the political opinions and
asplratlous of the majority. It does not.
however, require that any mau shall
surrender his reason or his conscience
Into the keeping of his party leader.
There must come crises in the lives
of all parties  when internal divisions
cannot be avoided. It is well that they
sh'Uld not be avoided. Principles are
greater than party, and he is a poor
Conservative, or a poor Liberal, who
would wish his pany to retain power by
unworthy means of by a sacrifice of
But the vinne of independence and
impartiality may easily be OTer valued.
If it be true that That mans the best
cosmopolite that loves his native country best," it is also true that he is the
best patriot wlio is most de-roted to the
principles of his party and nod iealous
in attempting to make them prevail, always provided that he insists on victory
with honor or not at all.
But there is a spurious kind of adherence to party from which Canada has
suffered, and is suffering. It is the loy.
ally of the office holder or office seeker.
In Britain it is a distinct disadvantage
for a party to have to appeal to the
country as the government of the day.
The position involves heary responsibility. Its pledges must be strong
enough to win support, without committing the party to an impossible programme.
In Canada unfortunately the reverst
is true. When a government appeals
to the electorate for a renewal of confidence, its platform hardly matters. It
r.as public works to dangle before constituencies and positions in the public
- rrlw :o lure individuals. Both parties
have abused the position.
It is vain to hope that the removal of
civil service appointments from the control of members of parliament and pat-
r. nage committees would remedy al!
the evil. Th*1 cure must be more
radical. We must cultivate in Canada
the spirit that will not tolerate betrayal
ot principles for imn? triumph or pergonal gain.
Tbe committal to gaol of a witness
wbo was guilty of contempt of conn
was the chief topic of conversation on
rhe street* yesterday. While some ex
presskms of sympathy for tbe perhaps
'hou-2hth=s offender were beard, it if
^ratifying to be able to re-cord tha;
there was unanimous approra! of the
stern insistence on obedience to the
court. Canadians justly pride them
selves on the purity of the admfnistra
tion of law ln this oountry. Tne maintenance of such purity requires unhesi
tating suppression of aay attempt to
secure unfair advantage, and even more
of the slightest tendency lo evade a rul
ing of the court. The dignity of the
bench is far better upheld by the jus.lge
who is jealous of the honor of the
court, than by one whose only consideration is insistence on correct millinery.
A strange situation is created by the
suppression of the results of the voting
by the mine:-* in .East Kootenay and Alberta on the question of accepting the
agreement offered by the operaturs.
What useful purpose may be served by
suppression, we are unable lo perceive.
The whole of Western Canada is profoundly interested in the decision. To
tfee miners themselves it means either
returning to well-paid employment or
remaining idle. The union officials by
their reticence axe not only prolonging
a period of painful uncertainty, ihey
are creating in many minds a doubt
whether the actual results of the voting
will be honestly declared.
Gen. Kuroki and his staff have been
welcomed by the American citiaens of
Seattle as they deserved, not only as
the official representatives of a friendly
power, but as members of a race which
[ has proved its prowess in war. its
moderation in victory, and its virtues
in peace. Japan will soon teach the
Western World that virtue. Intelligence
and power are not qualities peculiar to
the white race.
Pleasing   "At   Home"   in   Hume  School
Last Night by Trustees, Staff
and Pupils.
The entertainment given at the Hume
school last evening was one that will
not be forgotten for a long time to come
either by those who took part or those
��ho were present. For some time preparations have been going on for this entertainment. The work was under the
direction of the teachers. Miss Bate
and Miss McLennan, and they were
willingly assisted by the pupils. The
decorations of the school room testified
to the artistjc taste of those who designed them ai}d the industry and perseverance of those who carried out the
suggestions. The entertainment itself,
which might be regarded as an "at
home," given by the teachers and pupils
to the residents of Fairview, was most
creditable. A lengthy programme was
carried out with scarcely a hitch and
the children who took part and those
who came to be entertained enjoyed
themselves. It was g matter of surprise to everyone how little children
could be brought to such a degree of
perfection in so short a time. Another
thing was noticeable, that a strong
bond of sympathy exists between teachers and pupils. This did not escape the
attention of those present, and was remarked upon by nearly all. Dne credit
must be given the three school trustees.
E. A. Crease, George Gilchrist and Geo.
Playle. A good deal of the work connected with arrangement of details devolved upon those gentlemen, and they
were equal to the occasion. A word of
praise is also due the young ladies who
looked afler the refreshments wthch
were served alter the entertainment.
Mr. Crease occupied the chair and in a
few well-chosen remarks traced the history of providing educational facilities
for the youth of Fairvlew. He referred
to the time when it was difficult to
arouse any interest In the school on account of the almost inaccessible position
of the building. He paid a tribute to
the late member. Harry Wright, for his
efforts in inducing the government to
build a new school, and ln a position
where it would be convenient to all pupils. The present building was the
result of all this work. Mr. Crease's address was very interesting and was
listened to with attention. The programme which followed was a lengthy
one. It would be difficult to single out
one number that was better than the
other. After the conclusion of the programme refreshments wt-re served, and
the entertainment concluded at 10.30.

The Last Communing on Earth of the
Matter and Disciplee���8ervicea
Announced for Tomorrow.
Tomorrow will be the fifth Sunday
after Easter. Next Thursday will be
the Feast of the Ascension.
The Ascension Is one of the facts ln
the life of Christ, accepted ln every
creed of the church, which admits of
no Interpretation but the one given to
It by the disclplea who were there and
It ls the aim of the new theology to
explain away everything from the doctrines of the church as received from
the early fathers, and from the records
of the evangelists and writers of the
epistles and records which form the
New Testament everything which sav-
orB of the supernatural. Its exponents
would gladly destroy tbe records of atl
miracles. Jesus Christ they would present as a man inspired, ln greater degree perhaps but only in the same way
aB other great teachers and leaders of
the race.
They question the authorities for the
Virgin birth, and for a physical Resurrection. But to question the Ascension
