Debate Before Churchmen's Club Ends
in Victory for Advocates of
New Building.
An animated and Interesting debate
was held In St. Saviour's mission room
last night under the auspices of the
Churchmen's Club. Although a general
Invitation had been extended only about
.0 attended, a third of whom were
R. J. Steel presided. The programme
Included a solo by S. A. Wye, piano selections by Mr, Evans and a debate on
the question: "Resolved, that lt is In
the Interest of Nelson to vote $60,000
for a new public school."
R. J. Clark, leading for the affirmative, expressed regret that the real op
ponents of the school bylaw had declined the contest. He stated briefly
the case for free education, described
the present state of school accommodations ln Nelson, argued that a new
building was Imperatively needed, and
that any attempt at patch work or
make-shift would be an advertisement
of poverty and despair.
J. Fraser, leader of tho negative,
made a witty and entertaining speech,
twitting his opponents on some ot the
expressions already used. He based his
objections on three grounds, the present financial situation In Nelson, the un-
certainty as to the sum actually required, and the expediency of protesting against the provincial government's
laying a part of the burden of educa
tion upon municipalities.
Dr. Arthur made tbe most Important
contribution to the debate. He gave
a list of the men who had composed
Nelson's successive boards of trustees,
and protested against the insinuation
that the board had ever been careless
of expenditure. He then showed that
so far Nelson had not been treated in
niggardly fashion by the provincial gov-
crnment. Its present public school and
grounds had been provided by the gov-
ernment, and even since 1901, when the
city took over control, It had received
another lot and $10,000 which nearly
covered the cost of the high school.
Coming to the question of present requirements he pointed to the unfortunate arrangements forced upon the
board by lack of suitable accommoda
tlons. He defended the request for $60,-
000 as the nearest approximation thnt
could bo made by careful calculations
without Incurring preliminary expenses
for plans and specifications.
A. W. Dyer, who had stepped at the
last minute Into the gap left by Aid.
Selous, made an excellent critical
speech. He complained of lack of detailed Information furnished to the public by Ihe trustees, and went in detail
Into the estimates submitted In 1905.
Taking the cost of the high school as
$11,500, and of a new 10-roomcd school
at KamloopB as $25,000, he argued thai
the required school could be built fur
J. Fraser and R. J. Clark summed up,
and a vote was taken resulting in a vie
tory for the affirmative by more than
two to one. It was generally conceded
that the champions of Ihe negative had
made the best possible of a hopelessly
weak cause, but the weight of argument
was overwhelmingly with the advocates
of the school.
Rev. F. H. Graham thanked the de-
baters, expressed regret at the small
attendance, and then Invited all present
to partake of coffee and cako with tho
members of the club.

Emmanuel today inaugurated In the municipal palace hero, a largu and besuti.

exposition of ancient Umbrlan art, arranged chronologically and comprising
a thousand pictures and thousands of
other objects, Incjudlng sculpture, miniatures, Jewelry, arms, porcelains and

Mexico Decides Not to Trust Safety to
Peace Congresses.
8an Antonio, April 30.���A special
from Coatza-coalcos, Mexico, says:
"Olflclal announcement has been received that the Mexican government
has determined to fortify this
port and Sallna Cruz, tbe two terminals of the Tehuantpec National railway. For this purpose General Manuel
Mendragon haB already left Mexico
City. With him are high officers o! the
military engineer force. He will draw
up plans and specifications, and the
work ot fortifying the port will begin at
no distant date The exact significance
of this move Ib not known, but It ls believed to have simply grown ont of the
national policy, possibly spurred on by
the Central American troubles, and ln
response to a strong popular demand.
Before the opening of the isthmus road,
fortifications and terminals were much
urged but since the opening the popular
demand has become strong. It It stated
that the works will be of the most modern character and the batteries will Include the latest patterns and highest
Italian Government Will Continue Excavation at Herculaneum.
Rome, April 30.���Replying to a question on the subject asked by Deputy
Rampolll, the undersecretary of public
Instruction said ln the chamber today
that the government was willing to accept suggestions regarding the excavation at Herculaneum, but Intended to
reserve to itself the entire Initiative ln
the excavations, regarding the work ln
the light of a national undertaking. The
work will not be commenced Immediately, owing to obstacles offered by the
Village of Resina. When the question
was studied and the expenditure ascertained, a bill would be presented to
The Btatement waB applauded, bnt it
ls admitted that the government lacks
the means and energy to expedite the
work. Hence, Herculaneum, may remain
buried for another generation.

Congo Free State to France for the purpose of forcing the Belgtan parliament
into complying with his wishes. President Fallleres gave a gala luncheon at
the Kylsee palace today in honor of
King Leopold.

Immigration Discussed at
John Bums Saf i Home Goreroment
Must Be Impartial but WIU
Give Information.
London, April 30.���The following resolution proposed by the Australian commonwealth government was passed by
the imperial conference today:
"That It Is desirable to encourage
British emigrants to proceed to the
colonies rather than to foreign countries, that the Imperial government be
requested to co-operate with any colon-
lea desiring Immigrants, and In assisting suitable persons to emigrate."
Premier Deaidn dwelt upon the
urgent need for increased emigration to
Australia. Prjihler Ward said that
what New Zealand wanted was an emigrant with some capital. According to
the official precis Canada took no pnrt
in the discussion. John Burns explained
that the government wu considering
how far It could adopt the report of the
Interdepartmental committee; one of
whose recommendations was the reorganization of the Immigrants' Information office. The government could
not exercise any preference between
colonies. All it could do was to furnish
the most reliable information possible,
and leave the intending emigrant to
make his own selection. He did not
believe in colonization by bodies of persons. He thought the present a good
opportunity for the colonies to obtain
useful artisan colonists, especially for
the building trade. He laid stress upon
the extreme value of child emigration
along the lines followed by the late Dr.
Barnado, and welcomed any practical
suggestion on the question of uniformity of the naturalisation laws throughout
the Empire. Herbert Gladstone made
explanatory statements respecting the
draft of the Imperial Naturalisation
bill which was before the conference.
In view of the number of detailed considerations Involved, lt was agreed that
the discussion be adjourned.
Cecil Rhodes Reported to Have Wished
the World for Britain.
London, April 30.���The Standard this
morning Bays that among the aspirations in the will of Cecil Rhodes, to
which Earl Grey, governor general of
Canada, referred ln his speech at the
National Arbitration and Peace Congress banquet In New York on April
17th, were the ultimate recovery of the
United States by Great Britain, British
occupation of the whole of Africa and
South America, and of the seaboard of
China and Japan.
Cobalt Operator Warns Against  Rash
Investment and Reckless
Toronto, April 30.���Mr. J. B. Philips,
general manager and superintendent of
the Argyle Mining company, was In the
city yesterday endorsing the plea of
Haileybury people to the prime minister
tor the establishment of a general recording and Information ofllce at that
town, conducted on slmlllar lines to
that at Dawson, which serves the
In an Interview with the News, Mr.
Philips spoke very enthusiastically of
the general prospects of the silver region. This spring, he said, extensive development work and much prospecting
would be going on .which would result
In more definitely determined values
and the limit and extent of the silver-
bearing territory. At present this seems
bounded on the north by Lake Wlndigo,
on the south by the Gillies Limit, on the
eaat by Bucke township. The Larder
lake district In the far north was uncertain, and at present too Isolated to attract capital, and lends Itself too readily
to wlld-catting.
A serious condition exists, Mr. Philips
says, tn the townships of Willlson,
Smythe and James. Willlson and
Smythe have given Indication of richness In mineral, but many claims there
have  been  staked  under  fictitious li
cense and fictitious permits. Those who
hive staked tbem thus are making efforts to get money from the public with
which to go in and re-locate them under
proper conditions. This Is retarding development and the penalty against It,
Mr. Philips thinks, should be enforced.
Of the general situation, Mr. Philips
speaks encouragingly. The McKinley-
Darragh, the Red Rock, Nipisslng and
other properties are devoting time and
attention to the getting out of the largest possible amount of ore at the least
possible cost. The aim Is to ship a certain amount of ore regularly, taking on
the dignity of a mine. There Is hardly
a shipping property ln the district that
will not make a good mine with more
attention paid to the methods of mining. There has been too much handling
of waste rock when they should be
handling ore.
The Red Rock and Qreen-Meehan,
which formerly used doubtful methodB,
have Installed more practical methods
of mining and during the coming summer will claas among tbe best. The
Argyle company la preparing to install
diamond drills and ls at preaent sinking
shafts encountering valuable veins of
native silver.
"There is no question about the permanency of the district," waa Mr.
Philips' verdict.
Tbe great need he thought was for
good roads and bridges, lf they were
not Improved tt would Boon be Impossible to handle supplies.
New York, Bostoj and Chicago capitalists were closely watching developments with a view to acquiring control
of the better classes of properties and
placing them under the one management, to lower the cost of production
and Increase the output.
Regarding the Gillies Limit, Mr.
Philips said the government had undoubtedly done the wise thing to hold It.
It would produce great mineral wealth
as it was an extremely rich section.
Other properties on the T. and N. O.
railway were of great value, notably
the Nancy Helen and the Right-of-Way
properties. The Nancy Helen waa a
moat valuable property, and when lt began to ship wonld demonstrate beyond
question Its richness. Some remarkable
finds were being made.
The O'Brien, La Rose. Argyle and
other properties were also adopting
practical and scientific methods which
must bring results.
Mr. Philips said that the thing most
necessary to the district was that the
authorities should do everything in
their power to safeguard the public
against unscrupulous mining specula-
ton. Tke present depression In the
stock market wu Influenced by this and
the determined efforts of President
Roosevelt to right existing or presumed
wrongs In the railways and other cor
porattona of the United States. He predicted higher values before July lit.
Now an Admirer ef Clubs Which He
Formerly Denounced.
Berlin, April 30.���An Interesting note
ls published showing the alteration ln
the Kaiser's opinion of club life In Ger
many. Many years ago, when he was
crown prince, he forbade the officers of
his regiment to belong to or visit the
well-known Berlin Sporting Club. He
has since changed hlfc views, and ls now
the proprietor of the fashionable Casino
Club, the membera of which are chiefly
aristocrats and military officers, the Imperial Automobile Club and the Imperial Yacht Club, of Kiel. He ls an honorary member of the Junior United Service Club and the Cavalry Club, of London, and of the Royal Yacht Squadron,
of Co sves. The Kaiser's views on racing
are similarly changed. He now encourages officers to take part ln races, while
It Is understood here that racing Is falling more and more into desuetude
among officers ln England.
Island Volcano Threatening���8now  Is
Falling In Italy.
Rome, April 30.���A chid wind rose
suddenly and is blowing over the peninsula, particularly from the northern
part, where a severe snow storm also ls
ln progress. In the Alps and in the
provinces of Bellunl and Bergamo the
snowfall haB reached several Inches. At
Messina great apprehension still prevails over a fear ot an eruption of
Stromboll volcano. The condition of
the volcano ls still unknown as smoke
and fog prevent aignals being exchanged between Sicily and the island
of Strombold. It is teported, however,
that a considerable number of persons
have been Injured as a result ot the
eruption, and a torpedo boat has been
sent to Stromboll with men and material to assist persons tn distress. A panic
still prevails In Calajoya and many persons are flying from the villages.
Sled Dogs for Wellman.
St. Petersburg, April 30.���Through
the agency of the American consul gen-
eral, Wlllam R. Watts, a train of 29
Siberian sled dogs haa been secured for

Premier Deakln Want* Co-Operation of
Colonies Against Unfair Competition���Laurler Pleusnt
London, April 30.���At the banquet
tendered to the premiers of the self-governing colonies, at the Colonial Institute, Premier Deakln spoke in no uncertain terms of the necessity for some
plan of reciprocal trade among tbe component parts of the Empire. Lord Elgin
presided over a brilliant assemblage.
Lord Tweed-mouth, replying to Mr.
���Snuru, who proposed the tout of Om
"Forces of the Empire," said the condition of the Empire of the present day
had to be considered, not the condition
100 years hence. Sir Frederick Borden,
who followed, said Mr. Smutts suggestion wu a difficult and controversial
one, which it wu better not to enter
into In detail. If ever British nuthorlty
wen challenged, what happended a few
short years since would happen again,
and to ten times a greater degree.
The chief feature of the speech of
Lord Elgin, who proposed "A United
Empire," and spoke of the good feeling
which characterised the conference wu
the prolonged cheering which greeted
the mention of Joseph Chamberlain.
Sir Wilfrid Laurler aald Mr. Smartt
wu more ot a warrior than he wu. He
eulogised in glowing terms the British
government's action ln granting a -constitution to the Transvaal, prophesying
that lf ever the British Empire wu
called upon to drew the sword from the
scabbard, the men who fought each
other In South Africa would be found
fighting side by side under the old flag.
Mr.' Deakln, after some subacid chaff
with reference to the privacy of the
conference, spoke plainly on the question of preference. Having referred to
the probability that an organisation
analogous to the general staff would be
created in connection with naval defence, he proceeded amidst cheers, "But
does the Empire exist only for defence?
Are we to stand shoulder to shoulder on
the battlefield, side by side on the ironclad, but to pass each other u strangers In the paths of peace? We see our
merchants, shipowners and traders exposed to competition which Is unfair,
whioh is subsidised; surely the least we
can do Is to Insist on equal terms for
our own people."
The M. P.'s tn both houses entertained to luncheon the colonial premiers. The Interior of Westminister
Hall wu appropriately decorated. The
prime minister and practically the
whole of the cabinet and many other
dlstlngutsh'notabllltles were present.
Premier Laurier said the labors of the
colonial premiers In thla country would
not be ln vain, but would tend for good,
and they would go back more Impressed
than ever with the sense of Imperial
unity coupled with and based on local
University Sports.

TaWpg advantage of the opportunity
altered liy a public debate Dr. Arthur.
secretary of the board of school trustees, placed the case for a new public
school building fairly and clearly before
as many of the citizens of Nelson us
chose to attend a meeting of which
ample notice was given, and to which
ihey were cordially invited.
The bylaw will be read a third time
In the city council next Monday nlghl.
After that lt must be advertised for ten
days before it is submitted to a vote of
the rale payers, who will have, therefore, ample opportunity tu acquaint
themselves with all the facts before
they are called upon to decide.
The facts of the caae. as presented
by Dr. Arthur, are. briefly, that so far
the cily of Nelson his spent practicall>
nothing for grounds or buildings, although since 1901, wheu the city as
Hutned responsibility for the maintenance of schools, the annual bill for repairs to the public schools has been
comparatively heavy on account uf theli
arrangement and the consequent diflicul
ties of heating and sanitation. The pub
lie school now consists of ten divisions,
three of which ure quartered in premises away from the central buildings,
two of them ln quarters most unsuitable
for children, but absolutely the best obtainable by the board, namely, in Fraternity hall, and in the basement of the
Baptist church, both involving extra ex
penditure for heating and janitor service. The board, therefore, asks the city
tot a new building of 12 rooms, of mod-
.th design and material, which shall
afford adequate accommodation for the
.children, and at the same lime be a
.credit to the cily, and in keeping with
Its progress and ambitions.
The sum asked for, *60,000, Is admitted to be large, but the building can-
.not be further postponed without risk of
*.. .::.������ *.;.,.: *____!_ .
deterioration of the school, and the cost
of material and labor is much higher
than formerly when the board asked for
$40,000 for the same purpose.
The request to the council was not
accompanied by plans and specifications,
and therefore, of course, not by detailed
estimates because the board wished to
avoid the expense of such until the proposal to build should be sanctioned.
Two years ago such estimates were prepared and amounted to a little over $37,-
000. From such data, Mayor Gillett,
from his experience as a building contractor for many years continuously,
calculated that the building required
would cost, at the present rate of wages
and material, between 155,000 and $60,-
000. As the debentures may not sell at
a higher rate than 96 or 97, no amount
less than $60,000 could safely be estimated to cover all necessary outlay.
Opposition to the bylaw can be made
on only two grounds; either that education ls not the business of the state, or
that adequate facilities for education in
Nelson are not of sufficient importance
to warrant the Incurring of a liability of
$60,000 at the present time.
To the flrst objection It need only be
replied that a nation which has granted
the franchise to all male citizens dare
not allow any of those citizens to remain Illiterate. It is not only In the
Interest of national progress. It Ib essential to national safety, that the
means of education be afforded to all.
The second objection is even easier tn
meet. Those who urge It proclaim tlieir
willingness to vole $50,1100, and their
belief that that sum will lie sufficient
The advocates of the school would glad
ly agree with them. If It can be built
for $50,000 there will be $10,000 left. It
ls true that Interest must be paid on it
at the rate of five per cent. But It can
be deposited at 3 per cent, for a year
nnd used to meet the school estimates
for 1908. The loss therefore will be
only the difference, two per cent., on
$10,000 for one year���$200, Surely no
man In Nelson Is small enough to risk
the defeat of such a measure for so paltry a sum.
which a decision will probably be
reached at an early date.
Even now, except for assessment purposes, it is only an Imaginary line thnt
divides from the city the suburb of
Fairview and addition A, beyond Uie
corner of Latimer ansl Cedar streets. In
both the provincial government has already provided slsle-walks on a fairly
generous scale, nnd the city has already
extended Its water and light service.
The larger and mure important of the
two is. of course. Fairvlew. and the annexation of Fnlrview Is Ihe mure pressing question. The move is absolutely
necessary In the interests of Ihe people
of Fairvlew fer the sake of flre protection If for nothing else.
The only conceivable opposition from
that quarter Is from absentee hind owners who care nothing about Improve*
ments or lire prsstectlon. and whose only
concern Is lo keep taxes down.
From the point of view of (he property owners of Nelson It musl be conceded ihat the first effect would probably be necessity for increased expenditure, for water mains, sewers, streets,
side walks, lights and possibly extra police service.
But the Immediate accession of population, and assessed values, and the
early increase of revenue would certainly be a stimulus to Nelson's growth, aud
in a very short time lhe rise lu value of
property would far more than compensate for any apparent initial loss.
The question should be decided at an
early date. Any new interest of importance that may be established In
Fairvlew would probably oppose such a
move lo avoid increased taxes. If anything Is to be done. It cannot be done
too soon.
The question of the expediency of extending the limits of the corporation of
Ne'son to Include all the area occupied
by people who are to all intents and
purposes residents of the city, is now
a definite public Issue,   and  one  on
What happened In connection with
the Ross government of Ontario, and
resulted in its utter route at the polls,
Is happening now in connection with
the Laurler regime. A lifelong Liberal
whose service to the party far outweighed that of G. W. Ross and all his
followers, Hon. S. H. Illake, helped the
Conservatives to free Ontario from a
reign of corruption. Now two others,
of the same principles and equal eminence, Goldwin Smilh and G. T. Black-
stock, have denounced the corruption
at Ottawa, and the persistent shameless
betrayal of Liberal principles.
The condition in the coal fields Is
practically unchanged. Proposals for a
two-year agreement on the basis of mutual concessions have been made by the
operators and accepted by the labor
leaders. The men may accept or reject
them. At the best It Is only living
from hand to mouth. Both sides would
at once begin preparations for another
struggle in 1909. Still two years of
peace would be afforded to governments
ln which to find other solutions.
It will be noticed that while all other
colonial premiers at London emphasizo
the idea of Imperial unity, Sir Wilfrid
Laurler emphasises steadily Its corollary, local autonomy. There may be no
significance In It, but It has been remarked with considerable disappointment by British Imperialists that while
others put forward suggestions for
closer co-operation. Sir Wilfrid devotes himself to finding and pointing
out difficulties.
It is a strange accusation that some
members of the opposition make against
the provincial government, lhat opposl-

powers of the entire world will await
with keen Interest the results of the
contest between submarine tooata which
began In Narragansett Day today under
the direction of the navy department of
tho United Htatea. The boat that shows
up the best in the eyes of the naval experts will be adopted for the United
States navy and It 1b not Improbable
that the whole world will follow suit.
Two types of bont have entered the
contest. One of these, the l4ike, represents the inventor whose name it bears.
The other, the Octopus, is of the Holland type. Hoth boats have beon here
for some time tuning up for the official

pus. The selection of the boat, however, la not to depend upon apeed alone.
Durability, habiublllty and deep diving
will all enter into the summing up by
tbe Judges of the merits of the boats.
The navy board appointed to supervise the tests -consists of Captain
Adolph Marlx, president; Naval Constructor D. W. Taylor, Commander
Burns T. Walling, Lieutenant Commander William 8, Smith, Lieutenant
John W. Timmons and Ensign F. H.
Sadler, recorder.
Every precaution was taken by tbe
navy department 10 Insure fairness In
tbe trials and to bring out the merits
of the respective boats. The rules laid
down by the trial board and approved
by the secretary of the navy provide for
turning trials to prove the manoeuver-
ing powers of the boats for torpedo firing while submerged and under motion,
for mining and counter mining, as well
as tests of endurance and habltablllty.
In order to test the last-named quality
the boats, each taking a complement of
men, will be sunk. Bide by side, at the
torpedo dock station here for 24 hours
as a test of the comfort of the little
craft when necessary. Severe as this
test may seem to the laymen, neither
officers, men or owners seem to dread
It In the least.
The speed trials will be over a measured course of one mile, under three
conditions���light or cruising oonditlon,
with all ballast tanks empty; awash,
with part of the conning tower showing
and ready for Instant diving, and submerged, with the top of the conning
tower not less than 10 feet from the surface. For each apeed trial, unless a
special circumstances render lt Inexpedient, three runs will be made over
the course at a maximum speed, and
tour or five runs back and forth at progressively reduced speeds, as determined by Uie trial board.
The submarines carrying a complement of torpedoes, will make submerged runs and discharge in the shortest Ume possible all torpedoes at a target The flrst torpedo will be discharged
at 2,600 yards. Each boat will be examined as to strength, material and
workmanship. As a further test of
strenth, each boat will be submerged to
a depth not greater than the owners
may desire, but no boAt will be accepted
: as filling all the requirements unless lt
shall withstand without damage a running Bubmergenoe of 200 feet.
The board has decided thai the testa
shall be comparaUve, as it would be Im-
pracUcable to have simultaneous tests.
It is expected that the trials will last 10
days or two weeks.

A couple of weeks ago a resident of
Spokane, James Schiewe, viBlted the
Boundary, to have a look at the Fremont mine, in which he ls a stockholder. He was pleased with the Fremont,
which lies between the Providence and
Strathmore, and while in Greenwood
also looked at some other claims and
prospects. It appears that Mr. Schiewe
haB been quite successful in his mining
operaUons in the Coeur d' Alene country in Idaho, and waB disposed to take
up some thing here if it seemed sufficiently promising. This he found ln
the Sudbury group, in Deadwood camp,
a copper proposiUon that has had considerable development work done on lt,
and he arranged to bond the group of
three elalma. The price of the bond
was not made public, but It la known
that the owners had previously refused
Last week IncorporaUon papers of the
Sudbury Mining Co. were recorded In
Spokane, the company having a capital
of $250,000 for the purpose of taking
over and exploiting ttie Sudbury group.
The five trustees in charge of the company'a business are James Schiewe, J.
D. Whitela and A. S. Elder of Spokane,
and W. C. Reeder and William O. Lewis
of RiUville, Wash. * As soon as all details are completed, It Is expected that
an active programme of development
will be outlined and undertaken by tbe
new company, the officers of which
have confidence that they have the

Tin  Near Spokane.
Spokane is excited over the reported
discovery of a tin mine eight miles
south of the city. A conversation on
the subject took place fn the Hume
hotel yesterday afternoon amoug a
group of experienced mining men. One
told of a long search for tin In Montana. Another told of the discoveries
in Virgina. Another expressed his conviction that tin would never be found
In paying quantities on the American
continent. He based his opinion on lho
fact that wherever it has occurred lt
has been in conjunction with other metals, whereas, in the great mines of
Cornwall, it ia found pure.
