Anniversary   of   First   Spiritualistic   Demonstrations at  Hydesville.
mm Asse
Rochester, X. Y., March 81.���Followers of modern American Spiritualism
all over the world are today celebrating
tlie sixtieth anulversury of the event
which Is considered the foundation of
that cult. It waa on March 81, 1841,
lhat the Fox sisiers are alleged to have
first communicated with the spirits tit
lheir home In Hydesville, near this city,
At the time of tbe memorable occurrence there were three of the Fox sisters, the eldest not yet Hi and the
youngest still a mere child. From the
date of the discovery of "spiritualism"
the cult  spread   rapidly.
lhe first public appearance ot the
Fox sisters was In It'ichester, where
many of the prominent people of the
city made many investigations in an
effort to solve the "mystery." After
Rochester came Albany aud Troy. Next
came New York City. Here, It Is said,
there were gnat demonstrations, the
manifestations having been witnesses
for nearly three years. Noted men,
among them William Cullen Bryant aud
other literary oelebrltiea, attended se
annus and were puzzled. Physicians
sought to explain the phenomena by
BOlentifiC theories. Inn not even they,
according lo quotations from New York
papers,  failed
Rochester again became the scene of
action, and here Hie sisters had some
wonderful experiences with physicians
ami edit.us Uut ii remained for Buffalo to give them the roughest reception. The newspapers of that city
sought In every possible way to discredit   them.     Members   of  lhe  facility
i.r the University of Buffalo und leading
physicians   of   lhe   city   issued   a   long
statement  in which  they asserted the
rapplngs were made by a movement
of the Knee Joint. Numerous other ell
les were VlSltSd and finally came Huston, where  the  Harvard  professors und
Unitarian ministers   are   declared   to
have tiled In vain lo solve Ihe "mystery."
From lis obscure birthplace In Hydesville lhe cult has spread throughout a
large purl of Ihe civilized world. In
Ihls country there Is a National Spirit
uiiiisiisis' Association, with headquarters at Washington, u. c, of which Harrison D. Barrett of Seattle, Wash.. Is
the head. In addition to lhe national
association there aro nunieiiiroiis

London, March 31.���All the London
papers are now in possession of the
latest phase of the Hill incident, but
tor the most part they refrain from
The Daily Mail in an editorial says
that the emperor's whisper carries farther than the shout of hundreds oi other
men. "It all goes to show," says lhe
papers, "thai the emperor ought neither
tu wiite lo his friends nor talk freely
with his dinner table guests. He is a
man of impulsive temperament, and is
singularly unfitted for a rule where discretion is the supreme virtue."
The Daily Express says: "The new
diplomacy of the dinner table and ball
room is a palpable anchronism. To
have it recognized that a man is unfitted to be ambassador unless he is
wealthy and consumed with a desire to
spend on lavish entertainments is to
put back the ttands of the clock of history."
Berlin, March 31.���The advices received at the foreign office from Washington indicate that in the American
capital as well as in Berlin the Hill
episode is regarded as having been happily adjusted. The best diplomatic
opinion is that if Mr. Hill comes to
Berlin he will find his position not only
agreeable but more Important than if
the Incident had never happened.

One of the achievements of Uie Laurier government to which its votaries
' point with pride," was the abolition
of the special Dominion voters' lists,
and lhe acceptance for Dominion election purposes of the lists prepared under the authority of the provincial governments.
With the qualifications for the franchise identical uo good purpose is served by double registration. The government's amendment effected a small
economy  and  did  no  harm.
But the bill lo amend tin. Election
Act that bas lately been Introduced
by Mr. Aylesworth and is now on ils
"Way through parliament, proposes to
deal especially with the voters' lists of
British Columbia and Manitoba. The
least possible mention of this feature
of lhe bill haB beeu made by the Ma.
chine   organs.
Among our despatches from Ottawa
last Friday the mischievous features In
the Aylesworth bill were detailed as
"Voters' lists for the portions of the
provinces of Ontario and Quebec which
consist of territory not municipally organized aud where there is no regular
assessment or other valuation roll upon which voters' lists are based and for
several electoral districts in the Provinces of Manitoba and British Columbia
shall be prepared Immediately after tho
Issue of any writ for an election Jn any
such electoral district or in any elector-
Mi district composed or partly compos
ed of such territory, or at any time
when the governor-in-counsei so directs; and for the purpose of preparing
and giving effect to such voters' lists
lhe e-oveinor-in-oouncll may appoint
all necessary officers and confer upon
them  all   necessary  nowers.'
'In the preparation of the lists tlie
provincial law is to be followed as Dearly as possible, and���
" 'No person whose name is not included in tbe voters' lists so prepared
shall be entitled to vote.'
'* Oiie notaoie leature of this proposition is the fact that the provincial lists
are to be tampered with, although in
previous elections this was not necessary. Another is the fact lhat the gov-
ernment proposes to appoint whomsoever it pleases to Uo this delicate work
iu Ontario, Quebec, -Manitoba and Bri-
tisb, Columbia, without telling what sort
of a person will be chosen. Still another Important point is the circumstance that the government desires to
give this person full powers, and does
not allow parliament to say what the
POWi is  shall   be."
Expressed more briefly, the government  proposes   to  have  special   voters'
lists made bj special officers, with undefined and unlimited powers, and there
Is to be no court of revision or appeal.
No reason, good or bad, ia assigned
lor ihls proposal lo reslore a system
thai Liberal orators used to denounce
as vicious and conducive to corrupt
it is significant that tho provinces
in which Its application is to be general
are British Columbia and Manitoba, the
two western provinces in which the
provincial legislatures are under Conservative control.    In  neither  has  any

complaint been made by the Liberals
of unfairness ln the preparation of the
lists, but it Is to be taken out of tbe
hands of the provincial civil servants
and confided to a special band of workers appointed for thai purpose only, of
unspecified qualifications, aud beyond
any control but lhat of the Dominion
Now, ol course it is possible that the
work will be honestly done, but if that
is intended why should it be done at
Vtsieiday at uoou material was iu
for new voters' lists iu British Columbia, and courts of revision will ait iu
.May, but these lists will be worthless
for other than provincial election purposes. The Aylesworth bill provides for
lhe same woik to be done in tbe same
month, .May, by special appointees.
Here is proposed an utterly unnecessary duplication of work, Involving a
complete reversal of Liberal doctrine
and practice. If it is not proposed with
a corrupt purpose, it has uo purpose
at  all.
We can join our contemporary ln
hoping that the reporl of Mr. Slfton's
return to the Liberal cabinet is well
founded. Mr. Sifton is not an amiable
or admirable public character. It is
even unfortunate that he should be in
a position where he may inspire the
emulation of youug Canadians. His
cynic disregard of scruples in public
and private, may be an evil influence.
Hut he is an able man and his party
s* rely needs ability. The change from
Sir Kichard Cartwright to Mr. Sifton
in the trade and commerce department
will be a change from death lo life.
Sir Wilfrid   Laurler  may  courteously
admire Mr. Foster's wise proposals for

March ff. 1908.
London   Expert   on   Criminology   FindB
Fault  With   Education  and
Penal  Systems.
A remarkable addresH on the cause
and cure of crime waa given by Dr.
Albert Wilson, the brain specialist, during a private debate at the Sesame
Club of  London,  recently.
Dr. Wilson had promised to bring
one of the moat notorious cracksmen
of the Victorian era���now a reformed
character���to explain the Impulses
whleh led .Mm to crime. To the disappointment of everyone present the ex-
burglar apparently did not care to face
the ordeal, for he failed  to attend.
Dr. Wilson announced that in the
course of a special study of the psychology of crime he had examined
more than 200 criminals, including
murderers, pickpockets, highwaymen,
and burglars.
"Of all the causes of crime," he said,
perhaps the most remarkable is that
of multiple personality. I had a striking case of a girl of thirteen a few
years   ago.
"In one personality she became a
simple child of two who could not understand words and did not know her
name. In anoiher personality she became blind  and imbecile.
"I took her to Sir John Tweedy, the
eye specialist, who pronounced her
totally blind. Sir Thomas Harlow also
declared her a hopeless imbecile, and
said that she should be put in an asylum as soon as possible.
"A curious fact was that in her blind
personality she could draw pictures
which she could not draw normally.
In a third personality she was a criminal. Once while out for a walk she
stole an orange, and when rebuked replied in the typical phraseology of a
criminal. 'If you can't get an orange,
why,   nick   It.*
"On another occasion in her criminal personality she pushed her sister into the fire, and only the sudden arrival of her mother in the room prevented a dreadful tragedy."
Dr. Wilson divided criminals into
two classes: ���
(1)  Perverts.
2()!   Inverts.
"We have to thank our present system of education," Dr. Wilson said,
"for the recruiting of the inverts. Poor
children with starved brains and bad
heredity are forced to learn a lot of
stuff at school quite useless to their
"The result ls that by thirteen or
fourteen, when they leave school, they
have no pluck or stamina in them."
The four chief divisions of criminals
Dr. Wilson declared to be.
(1) Insane.
(2) Unstable.
(S)  Sports   (in   botanical   sense���one
varying from the normal type.)
(4)  Criminals from    environment    or
Unstable   criminals   were   those   who
yielded   to   Impluse,   he  said,   and   had
no power of arguing out what the aftereffects of their actions would be.

Oldest   Woman   in   B.  C.
Airs. .Margaret Hall, the oldest woman In New Westminster, and probably in Urilish Columbia, has just celebrated her ninety-sixth birthday. Mrs.
Hall is a woman of remarkable vitality,
aud although years have told much on
her during the past few months, she
still retains the full use of all her faculties, except her hearing, which was
quite good until recently. Her memory
is wonderfully clear, and she Is able to
recall many important events of the
early pan of the last century, including
tho great fire at Miramichi, N. li., which
occurred about 1826, while the stirring
times of tin; American War and the
American Civil War are quite fresh in
her miud. Mrs. Hall is the daughter of
Scotch parents, and was born at Si.
John, N. U., on March 29, 1812. She
had a twin brother who also lived to a
ripe age, being ninety ; wire old at the
time of his death.

ly. He says everyone ls talking about
llritish Columbia, and he is of the opinion that during the coming summer
there will be a large number of old
country people who will take up their
permanent residence in this province.
These people will have the capital requisite to establish themselves permanently in fruit-growing and the province
will be greatly benefitted by their pres
ence. Mr. Sammons feels that something should he done to instruct the
newcomers as to the best points of location. Many of them are unacquainted with tlie geography of the country
and it would be money well spent if the
trains were supplied with literature
dealing with the resources of the Interior. It would be better still if
someone were sent out to the main line
to meet the newcomers. During his
absence Mr. Sammons spoke a good
word for British Columbia generally
and the interior in particular wherever
he visited.
