Now   Reported  that  King   Edward  Sent
News  to   Times   of   Kaiser'a
Latest Blunder.
Herlin, March 14.���A lively correspondence has been in progress between
members of the Knglish and German
courts since the fact became known
that Kmperor William sent a personal
letter to Lord Tweedmouth, Hist lord of
Ihe British admiralty, supposedly concerning the llritish  naval estimates.
Through this channel news bus reached Ihe German court that It was King
Kdward himself who permitted the information about Kmperor William's
letter to be communicated to the London Times. Unwillingness to publish
ills Mujestj's communication and 1-ord
Twecdinouth's reply lo it was expressed
on the Knglish side because, as was anticipated at the time, it might embarrass Lord Tweedmouth. Fur this reason
the emperor did not give his consent to
publication. Copies of the letters in
question, however, have been shown to
various persons who are able to say as
a result uf ihelr own reading that the
letter of Kmperor William contained
nothing that could be, construed lulo
interference with tht* nuval plans of
Great  lirltuin.

Intercolonial Losses Are
Minister's  Report on   Government
Line Severely Criticized���Obstructive Tactics Still Followed.
Ottawa, March 14.���The minister of
railways has made his first annual
statement which did not convey much
Information. No policy respecting the
Georglun Bay Canal was made, though
u private company is demanding authority to construct it while public ownership Is strongly advocated. Neither
did Mr. Graham explain the government intention respecting the Quebec
bridge. He announced that the Q. T.
P. route from Kdmonton to the Pa-
ciilc has been located and that this
section would cost ,142,000,000, which
is Just $21,000,000 more than the Premier stated When he Introduced the
measure. As to tho Intercolonial returns for this year. Mr. Graham had
no mini in..tn.ii later than November,
though tne Grand Trunk and C. P. R.
furnish weekly statements down to a
few days belore publication. But the
minister admits that the showing this
year will not be as good as tlie last.
In the New Brunswick election Mr.
Pugsley and Mr. Kiumerson had a programme lor the purchase of branch
railways and engaged Mr. Burns, MP.
P. (since defeated) to prepare a report
on these lines. This report Mr. Graham
treated contemptuously, declaring in
his budget speech that while he might
take over a paying road, he would not
bother with others, and would not
touch any of them on the rejiort that
he had from outsiders. He bluntly declared that all thi -eports he wanted
he would get from I u> own olllcers.
Mr. Pugsley uccepted this jiu-pr without
resentment, thankful that Mr. Graham
postponed it until  after the election.
The minister's statement and the
railway department were sharply criticized by Mr. llaggart and Dr. Reld.
The former referred to Mr. Graham's
lack of information, especially In regard to tlie prospective cost of the
transcontinental, showed that the Intercolonial was run at an actual loss
of more than $1,000,000 a year, denounced the deception in the branch
line programme, and estimated that
Grand Trunk Pacific extension would
put the I. C. R. largely out of business. He proved that the cost of ojr
eiatitig the Intercolonial was large out
of all proportion to the revenues or
the work accomplished. Dr. Reld explained the failure or the government
olevator policy which the minister had
admitted. He recalled the government
statement when the Drummond line
was acquired, that this transaction
would change tho deficit of JGO.000 into an immediate surplus or (310.000 a
year, which would go on Increasing.
In the ten years since admitted net
deficit was $2,600,000, while, besides
the price of purchased brnnches the
128,000,000 had been ndded to the cost
of Ihe railway. This arldltlonal'capltal
is hugely cost of niuinlenunce and replacements belonging to working expenses. The department admits working
expenses lasl year were 97 per cent,
of earnings, and the recent average Is
more than 100 per cent, while on all
Ihe Canadian railroads the average is
less than 71 per cent., on the C. P.
R. less thnn 04 and the Grand Trunk
69. Dr. Reld showed thut if the working expenses of the Intercolonial were
on the same business basis as the average Canadian railway or the other
trunk lines, the saving would be .'10
per cent, of the revenue or $2,400,000
a  year.
Obstructionists in public accounts
committee huve again succeeded In
heading off the sub-target contract revelations. Having voted out of order
questions relating to the law suits between the promoter of tho company
and the minister of militia and about
the election drafts paid by this promoter, the majority also voted down Mr.
Foster's motion lo report Ihe matter to
the House tor instructions. The obstructionists consent to report to the
house when Mr. Foster shall state that
his  case  Is  closed.    That Is  they   are
willing to say that the inquiry shall
proceed when Mr. Foster promises that
it shall not proceed.
Mr. Bluin quietly punctured one plea
that Sir Frederick Morden and his supporters iiave put forward In defence of
the contract to pay $260 each for machines which the contractor farmed
out at $114. The minister repeatedly
stated that the price was the same as
the Conservative government of Ontario was paying for the same machine.
Mr. Biain produced the provincial contract, showing that it was not made by
the Whitney government but by the
Koss ministry almost on the eve of its
defeat. To those who know tbe ghastly
record of the Ross administration, the
plea of Sir Frederick that his department is no worse would be amusing if
it were not pathetic.

health and spirits and has enjoyed the
session which has just closed. He will
remain In Nelson about three weeks
then leave for the old country. He will
spend the summer ln post-graduate
work in London and Edinburgh. As to
the work of the session the doctor said
it had been businesslike and not unduly protracted. He thought the people
of Nelson knew the results fairly well
and he had no comment to offer.
The death occurred laBt night at her
father's residence. Carbonate street, of
Delia, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. M.

here with her parents last spring. Always delicate, she developed rapid consumption. The last sacraments of the
church were administered by Rev.
Father Althoff yesterday afternoon.
Miss Shepherd had been an invalid during the whole time of her residence ln
Nelson, und had made few acquaintances, but by the few she will be deeply
mourned. The body will be taken to

Col. Talbot Offended by
Dr. Sproule
Militant Liberal Left Chamber in a
Rage���News of Canada from
Ocean to Ocean.
Ottawa, March 14.���There was a violent scene lu tbe commons late last
night. Col. Talbot, member for Bel-
chasse, made a violent attack on Dr.
Sproule, reading from a speech the
doctor was reported to have made at
the Orange Grand Lodge meeting at
Mount Forest, concerning the province
of Quebec. Talbot bitterly assailed
Sproule and declared he had no words
available in which to express his contempt.
Sproule retorted that If Talbot had
no words available he might suggest
some tbat Talbot had used in private
Talbot, excitedly, "I challenge you,
I dare you to probe Into my past life.'
He then left the chamber.

MacPherson, M. P., of Vancouver, will
introduce a bill to amend the railway
act by striking out the clause relative
to prosecution and punishment of railway employees for causing wrecks
through tailing to observe orders, etc.,
thus leaving the question of prosecution to come under the provisions of the
criminal code as in the case of all other
offenders. This is along the lines of a
request of the railway men's union.

Motorists Disagree.
New York, March 14.���Following the
split between the Auto Club of America,
the premier motor organization on this
continent, and the America Automobile
Association, which occurred through
the withdrawal of the Auto club from
the New York state organization's meeting ln Buffalo Thursday, formal an-
Inouncement of the withdrawal was
made from the Auto club offices here
Although W. II. llotchkoss, president
of the A. A. A., gave out a statement
ln which he said tbe national organization welcomed the New York's withdrawal. Aiitomiibilists who are ln
touch with the auto situation expect
the effect to be far reaching in bo far
as legislative touring and racing affairs
are concerned. The immediate effect
of the withdrawal will be the disruption of the various boards of the A. A,
A., particularly the racing board of
which Jefferson Demont Thomson, the
chairman, W. K. Vanderbllt, Jr., David
Morris and S. W. Butler are members
by virtue of membership In the Auto
club. Should any of these men desire
to be reappointed to tbe racing board,
It will be necessary for them to enroll as individual members of the association. The effect most far reaching
in nature is expected by atitomobillts
to be a fight for supremacy in legislative racing and touring fields.

Tale of Hardships.
New York, March 14.���A startling
story of how five girls who came to
New York from St. Paul a year ago
took their own lives was told today by
seventeen year old Helen Baxter, after
she had made a vain effort to commit
suicide also. Helen said she was one
of the party of six girls who came to
New York to make their fortunes, after
serving a course of training ln the business school ln the Minnesota city. She
turned on the gas in her furnished room
in 4:jid street last night, but was resuscitated. This morning when asked
why she had tried to end her life, the
girl replied:
"Why should I not be allowed to die?
My live girl friends who left St. Paul
with me a yea*- ago after we left school,
have all committed suicide. I want to
die as they died and Join them." "Was
it a suicide pact?" she. was asked.
"My five friends are'all dead and they
dled as they chose," was her reply.

Indianapolis, March 14.���The United
Mine Workers ot Amorica, realizing the
gravity of a suspension of work on

the question of a wage scale in the
hope of averting a strike. The operators of the central competitive district
have been invited to meet the miners

Gotch  Will  Speak  Next.
New York, March 14.���Expressing
himself as not to be misunderstood by
the American public Geo. Hackensch-
mldt. the champion wrestler of the
world, who arrived here yesterday from
Europe, proclnlaied confidence ln his
ability to defeat Frank Gotch, the
American champion, whom he will meet
ln Chicago ou April 3.
"1 would like to have It understood,
however." he said, "that whatever may
bo the outcome of the match between
Gotch and myself it will be an absolutely square contest in which the best man
will win."
Still Hackenschmidt feels that be Is
not quite in the best wrestling condition. "I have been working for the past
year and have had little time ln which
to train but I know that with two weeks
training I will be In perfect shape."
When told that Gotch was a great
wrestler he said: "I am glad to hear It.
If he is as good as report says our
bout should be a good one."
Orders for Fruit Already
Equal Supply
Growers' Associations Now All in
One Body���Demand Will Be
Greater Than Erer.
The outlook for fruit ajrowers In
Kootenay and ln all British Columbia
was never better than It is now. The
fruit season ot 1908 Is certain, unless
unexpected and Inconceivable disaster
occurs, to far eclipse any previous
Aa was anticipated by lu promoters
the organization of the Central Fruit
Exchange haa bad the Immediate effect
of enabling the management ot the dlatrtct associations, by whose affiliation
It Is formed, to deal directly and on
far more favorable terms than before,
with the dealers ln the Northwest, British Columbia's nearest and best market-
James Johnstone has received word
tnat the Vernon Fruit Growers' Association, whose holding aloof was the chief
regret of those Interested, haa signified
its intention of Joining the exchange.
The result la that practically all the
Important organisations of fruit growers in the whole province are now
united, and from the headquarters at
Revelstoke will collect and market tha
whole product.
Mr. Johnstone further states that orders have already been received from
responsible dealers in the northwestern
centres, sufficient In amount to handle
the whole output of the province, calculated from the production of any year
to date,
Nothing could be more satisfactory. All
the growers have to do Is to raise and
harvest the fruit and ship It to Revelstoke. The exchange will do the rest,
and all proceeds will be distributed.
It is practically certain, also, that the
local markets in the province will be
much better this year than formerly,
especially on Vancouver Island, where
there will be many large construction
camps. There will also be the new
market at Prince Rupert, which will
have a large and steady demand, and
which ought to be supplied from the
older, settled parts of the province.

Supply Scouts.
New York, March 14.���Declaring It
Is only from the forest rangers ln tha
service of tut "ilted States that scouts
can be recruited 'or 3ervice In the
"great war that in coming," Glffard
Plnchot, chief forester of the department of agriculture, startled hia hearers at a dinner of the Camp Fire Club
of America at the Cafe des Beaux Arts
last r>lght, by discussing the war aa If
a conflict were unavoidable.
"In the great war which this country
will tight, but which I hope with all my
heart it will not have to fight soon," Mr.
Plnchot said, "the only quarter to-
which this government could look for
scouts, whose service in war Is so essential, Is to the bureau of forestry.
There and there only are men being
trained In such a fashion that they
would be of service. It la Important
that we preserve the forests and the
game to be ln condition to furnish for
service in that war the material out of
which good scouts can be mude. The
forest rangers make up this material."

Saturday, March 14. 1908.
Twenty.nine years ago Sir John A.
Macdonald introduced into the house of
commons of Canada the bill which established the system of tariff protection
In Canada, substantially as it remains
In 18CC Ihe Elgin reciprocity treaty
lapsed, notice of abrogation having
been given by the American government ten years earlier, when the treaty
had been Id force Just two years. From
that time to tlie present the history of
the United Stales larltT, against Canada
as against the rest of the world, has
been the history of a steadily rising
hostile  barrier.
The effect was not felt in Canada at
once. During the American Civil War
and the resulting disturbing of commerce and Industry in the republic
Canadian products of all kinds had
found a profitable market south of the
border. With the abrogation of the
treaty of reciprocity, and the period of
tremendous development that followed
the close of the war, our neighbors
soon were able to supply their own
wants and our markets were deluged
with American products turned out ln
enormous quantities, ready and able to
undersell Canadian goods in Canadian
markets.. Then came the world panic
of 1873, Soon Canadian industries were
out of business, artlzans were Idle and
penniless, and the farmers found none
to buy, or at least to pay for, their produce.
It was the misfortune of Alexander
McKenzie to be premier of Canada during the five least prosperous years of
Its history.
Sir John Macdonald saw that only
by an effective protective tariff against
American products could the industries and business be built up in Canada and prosperity restored. He swept
the country with his .National Policy in
the autumn of 1878, and on March 14th
of the following year put it into effect
by act of parliament.
The history of the tariff question In
Canadian politics since then is one of
the most peculiar phenomena in the
history of Canada. The National
Policy was at once attacked by the
Liberal party, led then by Alexander
McKenzie and Edward Hlake. Protection was denounced as robbery of the
farmer for the benefit of a few manufacturers. It was also asserted that a
Liberal administration could secure a
renewal of reciprocity with the United
In eighteen years that cry did duty
in the five general campaigns, thOHe of
'78, '82, '87, '!)1 and '%. The Liberal
tariff policy appeared under the various
aliases of Free Trade, Unrestricted
Reciprocity, Commercial Union, Tariff
for Revenue Only, and Free Trade as
They  Have  it ln  England.
To the very last It was the chief
plank of the Liberal platform. In the
campaign of '96 Sir Wilfrid Laurler declared again and again with passionate
eloquence that he "would never rest
till he had wiped out the last vestige
of the inlquitious system of protection."
It v.-uld be charitable to his heart, but
an Insult to his head, to believe that he
understood and meant what hiB words
With the victory of the Liberals In
1896 the tariff as a political issue died
a natural death. No sane Canadian
dreams of attacking the National Policy
now any more than he dreams of
abolishing responsible government, or
dissolving Confederation, or taking up
the rails of the Canadian Pacific railway.
The chief merit of Sir Wilfrid Laur-
ier in the eyes of future historians of
Canada will be that, though he made
no public recantation, he made no pretence of fulfilling his crazy pledge to
"wipe out the last vestige of the iniquitous   system   of   protection."
The defeat of a Socialist bill in the
British house of Commons marks the
beginning of the end for the present
government. It Is true that the Liberals
nominally have a majority over Conservatives. Nationalists and Socialists
all togeteher. But many of the Liberals
in the campaign had accepted the
Socialist pledges and were elected by
Socialist votes. It may be that Britain
will be freed from the Incubus of free
imports ln the manner suggested by
Lord Itosebery, the making of a desperate choice between protection and
socialism. Acceptance of Socialist
dogman and practice is almost
almost Impossible to Anglo-Saxons
or Celts, but a positive policy Is
demanded and the tariff reformers are
the only other party offering it. It is.
perhaps worth noting lhat Lord Rose-
bery has overstated the case. Mr. Balfour has not declared for protection as
It Is understood in Germany, the United
States or Canada. He has asked only
that British ministers be given the
means of replying to obviously hostile
The fact that the American navy is
to make a tour of the world id time of
peace is the best possible evidence that
the American government has no apprehension of war.
British Proposal Approved.
St. Petersburg, March 14���The British note sent to the powers by Sir
Kdward Grey, secretary for foreign affairs, proposing virtually the appointment of a permanent governor of Macedonia, has been received here and is
being carefully considered. While the
foreign office is not willing to state In
advance what its response will be It is
understood that Russia will announce
her willingness to support the proposition of Great Britain. Grave doubts
are entertained, however, of the possibility of inducing the Porte to accept
the proposal.

Lumber  Mills  Starting.
The Royal City Lumber Mills, New
Westminster have started after remaining idle for three months. This

also points to a revival in the lumbering and milling Industry which has

Promising  ground.
John Houston has received word
from Goldfleld, Nevada, that two old-
timers In British Columbia, T. C. Collins and Charles Locason, have ground
in San Bernardino county, California,
that looks as If it might place them ln
comfortable circumstances. It is located near Silver Lake, a station on Borax Smith's branch of the Same Fe railway. The ore Is copper with values
in gold.
Salvation Army Immigrant!.
Five cars of Salvation Army immigrants arrived at Vernon last Monday
forenoon in charge of Staff-Capt. Patterson and Capt. Johnstone. They were
met at the station by the local corps
with jts band, and given a cordial
welcome to the Okanagan. The cars
contained about 175 immigrants, a fair
sprinkling being married men with
their wives. Vernon and the surround-,
Ing district received 132 of these; 12
got off at Enderby, and 14 at Armstrong; while the remainder proceeded
on to points down the lake. Capt.
Johnstone states tbat he has already
received applications for over a hundred more of this class, who will reach
Vernon In the next contingent which is
expected to arrive about the middle of
A Nelaon Invention.
One of the most perplexing problems
grocers have had Do solve from time to
time is the safest and most convenient
methods of storing coal oil and other
liquids. Particularly has the storage
of coal oil been a source of great inconvenience, the odor arising endangering the preservation In good condition
of other goods. To obviate this difficulty George Fleming, the Fairvlew grocer has invented a device for measuring liquids, Which is at once ingenious
and usegul. By iti use, the grocer will
be enabled to h: .*e bia liquids constantly on tap, and it will not be necessary to travel after dark to an outbuilding when a small measure of coal
oil is to be procured for a customer. As
a patent has been applied for, Mr.
Fleming does not  feel  disposed to en
ter into any lengthy description of hhl
Invention, but promises to supply the
desired information to the Daily Canadian  when the. right  time comes.
St.   Paul'a   Appeal   for   Temperance   In
All  Things Still  Applicable���
Cfiurch   Services.
Tomorrow will be the Second Sunday In Lent. The only holy day that
occurs during the following week Is
St. Patrick's Day, Tuesday. St. Patrick is easily the best known of the
Seven Saints of Christendom, the
champions and patrons of the four nations of Britain, and of France, Spain
and Italy. He is also the only one
about wbose life and work there is no
doubt. He was not the founder of the
church ln Ireland, but he was Its greatest prelate and did more than any
other to lay the foundation of that
civilization ln the western Island which
made It for several centuries renowned throughout Europe for learning and
piety, until It fell at last before the
successive inroads of the Danes and
A nglo-Normans.
The epistle for the day is from St.
Paul's epistle to the Thessalonians,
which is an exhortation to temperance
in its broadest sense, to self-control
and abstinence from evil habits and
yielding to temptations of the flesh.
It Is an appeal for the cultivation of
the virtues which it is the purpose of
the Lenten season to foster, self-discipline and the moulding of the whole
man to obedience to the higher Impulses of his nature and conquest of the
lower  desires.
The following services are announced

Fruit Canning.
Very often the suggestion is made
that fruit canning could be carried on
profitably in the interior. Undoubtedly
the fruit is here and it Is strange, ln
view of the interest in fruit canning in
other^parts of the province, that something of this sort has not been attempted ln Nelson. The Westminster Fruit
Tannery plant is to be sold to a Chilll-
wack company, which proposes establishing a cannery in the new Fraser
River Valley city. Kamloops people
are also interested in the establishment of a fruit preserving Industry ln
the Inland capital.
'Tis True, 'TIs Pity.
The Cranbrook Herald makes the following true statement of prevailing conditions in some newspaper offices: "It
is a deplorable fact that a few tickets
or a 11-inch advertisement from any
barnstorming show will fix the average
western newspaper so far as notices
go. Most of the attractions on the road
today In this part of the country realize
that the Herald is not built that way.
Hence the trouble." It Is pleasing to
note, however, that since The Daily
'anadian closed down on this Indiscriminate   puffing    of    barnstormers   a

Fair Directors.
An important meeting of the directors of the Nelson Agricultural and Industrial Association was held in the
city hall last evening. Those present
were: C. W. Busk, president. D. C. McMorris, secretary, James Johnstone, W.
S. Pearcy, A. D. Emory. H. Selous. J.
A. Irving. J. J. Malone, W. W. Beer, J.
A. Kltkpatrlek, and J. T. Bealby. The
various subcommittees reported their
recommendations for changes In prize
lists. They were adopted and it was
decided to ask the city press to publish
them in Installments for the guidance
of intending exhihitors. R. C. Brock
was added to the fruit committee. The
secretary was instructed' to write Sir
Thomas Shaughnessy asking him to define the purpose of his cup and the
terms of its award. Through W. S.
Pearcy, Chiel Deaay offered to take
down the flags and bunting and clean
and press them. The offer was gratefully accepted.
Work  on   Granite   Creek.
The Slmilkameen Star says the old
historic mining town of Granite will
be the scene of considerable mining
activity this summer. An examination
of the creek for the purpose of ascertaining the possibilities of saving tbe
gold in tbe creek by dredging has been
made, and the results have been so
satisfactory that a Spokane mining
company will shortly construct a
dredge at a cost of $10,000 to carry on
the work. One half mile of the ground
has been staked on the Tulameen river from Granite creek down the river. During the big gold excitement
and Btampede to Granite creek during
1885-1886. this same ground was held
and operated by the Mainland Placer
Mining Co., which, during the year or
so it was worked, yielded handsome returns. Platinum was also found, hut
at tbat time no one seemed to know
anything about the metal, and It was
not sought for. The placer diggings
giving out, the property was abandoned
and later on taken up by the Boston
Mining Co. This company endeavored
to work It by a bedrock flume, but
they were swept out of business by
the water after spending considerable
money without avail. It Is generally
understood lhat this property contains
enormously rich  potholes.
