Lisbon Crowded for Day
of Funerals
Memorial Service in London Attended
by King. Queen, and Prince and
Princess of Wales.
Lisbon. Feb. S.���The funeral services
over the bodies of King Curios und hla
son Luiz, crown prince of Portugal, who
were shot to death a week ago in this
city, were held in the church of St.
Vincente early this afternoon. The
ceremonies were simple but impressive
and ended without any untoward incident. The line of proceasion from the
chapel In the palace to the church was
guarded by troops, several additional
regiments having been brought into the
city for the purpose. All the governments of Europe and America were represented by special representatives. Opposition, real or fancied, the restriction
of liberty, the bitter clash of party, sin-
isty Intrigue and merciless vengeance,
seemed to have been abandoned for the
moment at least. The Portuguese people prepared for the great funeral of the
king and his aou. ThiB was the day
of their royal dead, the day alao of the
burial of fellow Roman Catholica. Following the custom of Roman Catholics
the people wished in some way to join
ln the solemn muss which was offered
up for the spiritual welfare of Carlos
and his son.
The streets were thronged with people. They poured ln from the country
towns of the provinces and nearby
cities, some by train, some by carriage
or by cart and many on foot. In the
crowd were large numbers of ainiple
peasants and tradesmen from the prov-
ines, who knew or cared nothing of political strife but wished only to mourn
the dead leaders. Bits of crepe buttered from the arms of many persons In
the city, yet in spite of these general '
signs of mourning, the crowded streets
suggested to observers a general fete
day which the talking throng were all
bent on observing. But to others the
presence of large boklles of infantrymen and cavalrymen at various points
of prominence had a sinister significance, a suggestion of the tragic events
that had come and of those that might
fall on the nation In the near future.
The actual route of march between the
palace and the church was densely
lined by the mourning people.
One point, however, was carefully-
avoided by the superataitious Portuguese; this was the actual place on
the Praca de Commerclo where the cold
blooded murders were committed lust
Had it not been for the presence of
a cavalry picket this part of the Praca
would have been absolutely deserted.
All the business houses and shops of
Lisbon were closed and the ministerial
offices situated in the Praca de Com-
mercio were closed as a measure of
precaution. Furthermore all the windows of these buildings were carefully
Shuttered. The funeral procession left
the palace at noon on Its long march of
over three miles and a half to the
church of San Vincente, which Is attached to the royal Pantheon, where
the bodies of King Carlos and the
crown prince Anally will he laid at reet
Yielding to earnest solicitations King
Mauoel did uot lake part 'n the procession. He and his mother, Queen
Amelle, and the mother of the late
king. Queen Maria Pla, were present
a: the service* lu the mortuary chapel,
and followed the coffins to the door or
the chape, whence they returned tu the
palace. King Manoel solemnly received
the missions sent to Lisbon by the sovereigns and chiefs of state or foreign
ruuntriOB. Neither queen was present
at this function. The funeral cortege
arrived nt the church of Snn Vincente
ut 2 o'clock. It traversed the scene of
the trngedy In the Praca de Commerclo
Iii   absolute  quiet.     In   contrast  tb   the
sombre occasion, tin* day ooinmeneod
with glorious weather, the sun ahluiug
brilliantly and the air rilled with the
Hlow pi>iillng or church bells. MeBBen-
gora were seen passing through the
streets beating wreaths and flural
pieees. Sume of thoso were remembrances from foreign kings and rulers
that wcro being sent to the palace. The
golden letters on two such offerings
Showed they were rrom the emperor or
Russia and King Haakon and Queen
Maud or Norway.
ClnrlonH sounded down the principal
avenues. They announced the approach
of the regiments which later followed
the funeral procession. Then from afar
came * fanfare nf bugles summoning
the cavalry, which deployed rapidly to
guard the routa of the cortege. In addition to these preparations tlie street*
wore filled with swiftly moving vehicles
conveying dlgnltarlea to lha*  palace.
While the cortege wna being organized the members of the royal family
took their Inst, view of their dead at
the palace. Prayers were Bald In the
royal chnpel by the priest* and then the

London, Feb. 8.���King Edward and
Queen Alexandra, the Prince of Wales
and other members of the myal family,
were present at a requiem mass this
afternoon in the Catholic church of St.
James in Spanish Place for the late
King and Crown Prince of Portugal.
The church was draped with crepe
and crowded with members of the diplomatic corps, cabinet ministers, high
naval and military officers anal other
distinguished persons. The demand for
seats was so great"that only those with
apeclal claims could be accommodated
in the church. The flags of the British
warships in the naval ports were at
half mast ln memory of the late King of
Portugal, who was an admiral of the
Hritish fleet.
Lisbon, Feb. 8���All persons who were
arrested last week, charged with secreting bombs, arms, etc., and three
persons who were suspected to be regicides, have been rel.'.ased. A detachment of political prisoners from the
Caxias fortress, numbering about 100,
was awaited at the station heie by Republicans who made a demonstration
and cried for "The republic." The .unlimited clemency is greatly appreciated
by the Republicans but is sharply criticized by members of other parties. The
police have discovered a secret depot
of arms containing four hundred "carbines. ,

Preference Must Stand
in Forefront
Overwhelming Majority Rejects All
Suggestions of Temporizing���
Heaton Is Snubbed.
Montreal, Feb. 8.���A special London
cable says the most significant feature
of the enthusiastic proceedings at the
tariff reform league yesterday was the
uncerimonious way in which delegates
from all parts of the kingdom rejected
a suggestion that the preference side of
the movement be postponed until the
present British food taxes be replaced
by taxes on manufactured Imports. The
delegates insisted by an overwhelming
majority that preference waa a vital and
essential part of the policy. The chairman announced that every member of
the Chamberlain executive would resign
if any attempt to remove the preference
from the forefront cf the programme
were made.

the views of the British government

I. N. Dally, of Seattle. Is ln the city.
Mr. Dally was for several years a resident of Nelson, and is still convinced
that the Kootenay metropolis is the
most prosperous city of its size on the
continent. He says the people of Nelson know nothing of hard times. In
Seattle a few days ago, 2500 able-bodied
working men paraded to the city hall
and demanded from the mayor bread
and work. Unfortunately the mayor
was unable to comply with the demand
and those men are on the verge of
starvation. Seattle is in bad condition
frum a commercial standpoint of view,
but the citizens live in the hope that
times  will   improve. ,
There are many former residents of
Nelson now living in Seattle. Kenneth
Beaton is connected with a Seattle
newspaper. David Dover owns ��, "urok.
erage office; Jacob Dover has a small
jewely store and "Plum" Smith has
bought out a cigar store. They are all
dointr fairly fell notwithstanding the
hard'tlmes. Bob McLeod Is heavily
Interested ln Seattle real estate, and if
he can pull through the hard times, he
will make some money.
Mr. Dally will leave for Seattle early
next week, but will return to Nelson
just as Boon as he can attend to certain business matters nt Seattle. This
may take a year or it may take longer.
But just as soon as he can conveniently
arrange his affairs, I. N. Dally will once
more become a resident of Nelson.
Agitator   Rebuked.
SL Petersburg, Feb. 8.���The demonstrations wheh took place ln the Duma
yesterday ngalnst Professor Paul Mllu-
kofr, leader of the Constitutional Democrats, arising from the lll-feelfhg created here by hlB recent lectures In New
York on the political situation in Russia, engrossed the attention of the entire press of this city, which today-
unites In deploring an incident which
tends to fan partisan enmity and endanger the chances of the Democrats'
success. The occurrences of yesterday
probably will be followed up by a formal resolution censuring Professor Ml-
lnkoff for lack of patriotism and unparliamentary conduct in advising a
foreign country to stir up a sentiment
of enmity, while occupying a responsible position in the government.

Tbe predit-Lion ol a comparatively
shtart seealoci may still be fulfilled. Tbe
legislature has been in session since
January SGth, three weeks and three
days. A large part of the time has
been spent in utterly futile discussion
of a question beyond the control of
the legislature. Had tbe government
assented tc, every contention of the opposition, all that oonld have been done
was to call upon the iieutenant-gover-
rior ior an explanation of bis course,
an explanation which of course would
not have been given, which the lieutenant-governor does nut owe to the
provincial legislature but only to the
Dominion cabinet, by whom, it may
be recalled, his conduct has not yet
been called   in   question.
A single word of protest, even a
question, on the subject from one of
Pritish Columbia's representatives at
Ottawa would have forced from Sir Wil
frld Laurier a statement of his position.
But no protest was uttered, no question
was asked. Our seven champions preferred to let their understudies at Victoria take all the risks of embarrassing Sir Wilfrid while they shared the
glory of championing the "pro-antl-
Asiatlc"  cause   (vide Bob  McPherson;

Sir Oliver Dodge, president of Hir-
uiliigham University, makes the startling announcement that splrltuulism is
a fact. He has roOOtve* meHSHgt-H from
tlie Unseen World, and under conditions
that to his mind made uny but a spiritualistic exialunutlou Impossible. One thing,
however, It is well to remember, and
that i.s Sir Oliver Dodge's position. He
does not speak as a scientist, hut. as a
spiritualist- For years he has heen dabbling with mysteries, and the most has
heen made of his position as a scientist, the idea being to prove lhat lt
Would be Impossible for tricksters to
lmjKise on him. Any such conclusion
ls absurd. Sir Oliver is probably not
moro worldly wise than one of his students, and for the claim that science
now acknowledges spiritualism, the
fact Is that Sir Oliver Dodge is hy no
means so eminaant us a scientist as
he is likely to he as a spiritualist. The
ground of pure science he left years
ago, when he lirst lent himself to spiritualistic investigations.
It ls quite possible for a writer on
the subject of spiritualism to tLake
a-ither oue of two opposite sides to the
question und to denounce or approve,
as lie chooses. Oue may either record a number of phenomena that very
di cidedly point to u supernutural cause,
or he may record the thousand Instances of imposture discovered. In the
event of a movement to hound or
ridicule honest believers ln psychic
phenomena. It would be proper to point
out that there appears to be some basis for their convictions; and at a
time when fakirs are reaping a rich harvest* from the credulity of the foolish,
it would be proper to show how nearly
every one of the whole spiritualistic
bag of tricks can be duplicated by conjurers, ln making the latter statement
lt Is fair to say that Houdlln, a great
exponent of legerdemain, once declared his inability to explain some spiritualistic demonstrations. Uellachtnl, a
court prestldigltateur of Berlin, and
Kellar, the American conjurer, both admitted that they were unable to account for some of the spiritualistic performances.
One risks little by asserting that
some of the crudest and most detestable frauds of modern times are to be
charged against these "professors" of
spiritualism. Everyone is familiar with
the case of Diss Debar, the harpy who
ruined    Luther Marsh,    of    New York,
Notiee is hereby given that the Great
West Railway Company will apply to
the Parliament of Canada, at the present session thereof, for an act amending
the said Company's Acts of Incorporation by striking out the names of those

A case not so well known, but especially Illustrative of human credulity, ls
that of a prominent San Francisco citizen named Hennett. Some years ago
he fell Into the hands of a band of spiritualist vampires, and they ruined him
before he escaped from their clutches.
A hard-headed business man when he
began, he was soon reduced to the
mental status of a child. He was led
to believe that It was possible to transfer articles like carriages, etc., to Jupiter, and have them re-materialized on
that planet. Bennett, was a carriage
manufacturer, and was induced lo part
with several vehicles in the interests
of the Inhabitants of Jupiter. So besotted was he that when his friends
.showed him one carriage that the gang
had sold to a dealer for one-fifth Its
value, Hennett would only admit that
"It looked something like it." Yet he
made the  carriage himself.

when tbe county jail was reached they
turned in: "This la the place,'' said
Smyth. "The work Is In the rear but
you had better come in and be rggis*

regular way. This is my partner," he
added, as Officer Devitt approached.
The three men turned into the county
jail and entered by a side door. Th"
door was clicked behind Ciddeo. Some
tUng then seemed to tell the wily
Italian he had walked Into a trap. His
eyes narrowed and glanced around
quickly. He had la��-en pushed Into a
chair by Officer Devitt and as he heard
Smith saying, "You are under arrest
for destroying a hotel and the murder
