returned to work this morning pending a new arrangement.
Record  of  Kootenay  Lake  Levels  for
Six Years���Contents of Capt.
Moore's   Log  Book.
The peculiar weather coudtlons of
this Spring have caused a lot of speculation as lo lhe chances of high water.
Those who were here In 1894, the year
of the flood, differ somewhat in Iheir
explanation. Conditions vary So from
year to year that any calculations are
liable to error.
CapL Moore of the Bteamer International has very complete records Blnce
���and Including���1901. They huve been
kept by himself since 1904, and before
that by his predecessors, Captains Gris-
wold and Held. The water measurements were taken at Kaslo, the weather
conditions apply generally lo Kootenay lake and the Wesl Arm.
In 1901 high water mark, 14 feet 2
Inches was reached on June 112nd and
.listed for 8 days, with Routheaslerly
winds prevailing.
In 1902 the level of 19 feet 1 Inch, the
highest recorded in the period, was attained on June 4th and remained till
the 7th, with north winds.
,In 1903 high water came late, July
18th seeing 14 feet 2 inches, with cloudy
weather and northerly winds.
In 1904, July 13th was high water day,
Iho level hcing 14 feet 2 inches, with
siuiili winds.
In 1905 the high mark, 18 feet 3
Inches,* was reached on May 31st.
Lust yeur showed a low water record,
Ihe high mark being only 8 feet,
reached on June 6th.
May 7th shows a series of strange
variations: in 1903 the water level for
that duy was tl feot 3 Inches, ln 1904,
6 feet 1 Inch; In 1906, 3 feet 6 Inches;
in 1906, 7 feet 2 Inches���only 10 inches
below the high water mark for the year.
Today, May 7th. 1907, the lovel ls only
4  feet 6 InchoB.
Capt. Moore's log book contains a lot
of IntercBtlng records. Among other
things thoy record one almost constant
feature ln Kootenuy's varying climate.
The summer solstice, Juno 21st, Is nearly always followed by u gale.
Considerable apace Is givon ln the
Kaalo's log book for 1902 to n memorable race between the Kaslo and lhe
Kokanee. They left Nelson together at
8:34 a. m. on Mny 24th for KubIo by
wuy of Pilot Day. The Kokanee reached
Kuslo ot 11:09, the Kaslo at 11:34.
Utter ln thc same dav they raced from
Kaslo to Lardeau, the Kaslo winning,
milking 18 miles In 54 minutes (20 miles
nn hour) to tho Kokanco's 1 hour IVi
minutes. ,      , ,
On the same day tho International besides covering her regular trip, made
flvo round trips from Nelson to Ko-
knnoo Park.

Lord liner Believes in
Statesman's View of the Alms To Be
Adopted by Imperialists-
Fall Autonomy for all.
London, May 7.���Lord Mllncr's article
in The National Kevlew on the Colonial
Conference has naturally attracted
great attention. He states that he
writes as an ardent Imperialist and
urges what he thinks should be done
from that standpoint. His position can
be shown by a series of extracts from
this long article.
"What Ib the goal? What Is it that we,
who call ourselves Imperialists, really
have ln our minds when we talk of 'the
consolidation of :he Empire,' of 'Imperial unity,' and so forth? It is, I take
it, nothing less than this: that the several states of the Empire, however In-
dependent in their local affaire, however dissimilar ln some of their institutions, should yet constitute, for certain purposes, one body politic; that,
In their relations with the rest of the
world, they should appear, and be, a
single power, speaking with one voice,
acting and ranking as one great unit in
the society of states."
He rejoices in the fact that the great
colonies have attained the dignity of
nations, but nationhood does not involve
jk, separate existence. For instance, the
Scotch are a nation, yet they are politically merged with England.
"Every German is familiar with the
idea of a 'narrower' and a 'wider' Fatherland. He ls a patriotic Prussian, Saxon or Bavarian, but he is a patriotic
German to boot. 1 can see no greater
difficulty for any subject of the British
crown in feeling a simillar double allegiance���allegiance to his own country uud allegiance to the Empire as a
Lord Milncr agrees that the old treatment of the colonies by Englaud which
looked to parting with them aa friends
was good on Its negative side, since it
gave them freedom, but It did not tend to
build up a partnership on equal terms,
it is more difficult today to organize an
Imperial system than ln the 40's and
60's, when in starting out new colonies on an Independent career, provision could have been made for co-operation lu certain matters.
"A genuine Imperial Court of Appeal,
an Imperial Trade council with colonial
members upon it, regular representation
of the colonies at home by political and
not merely commercial agents, a certain preference lo British ships bearing
the British flag ln all British ports and
waters, a light import duty on all foreign goods entering British territory, to
form the nucleus of a common fund for
common purposes���these things would
have appeared, as Indeed they are, so
natural that they could easily have been
established at Ihe outset."
Yet difficult as the problem now Is it
must bo faced. Ho says: "It ls the colonics In this Instance, or at any rntc
Borne of them, who are making the running. And thut ls nil to the good. It Is
fur better that proposals for co-opera-
ton should come from them thnn from
ub. If Groat llrltaln were thc first to
move, it would ho Impossible to avoid
the suspicion, amounl Ing In some quarters almost to a mnnln, that we wore
seeking to lnterefere with colonial self-
government, to recover control for
Downing street,' True, no mini In his
senses dreams of such a thing. But
though In tills country we all know
this, lt is evident that In the colonies,
and especially, perhaps, In Canada, a
good many people still do not know lt."
Ho regrets that England should have
given no better reception than It has
to the preference which Is the one tie
lhat all lho colonics are unanimous ln
desiring, und he calls upon Imperialists
to endeuvor to make the day come
quickly when the people of England will
sec the weakness of the "dear food"
cry hy showing them thnt thc little thoy
lose In one wny will bo more thnn made
up ln a dozen other ways.
He proceeds: "But more Important
that all tho rest is the question of the
future of the conference Itself. That
body is, after all, next to tho Crown, tho
greatest Imperial asset we possess. It
Is our ono really Imperial Institution,
and it Is to Its continued existence and
heightened efficiency that we must look
for lhe gradual establishment of a real
partnership between the self-governing
Btates of the Empire."
He Btrongly favors the plan of an Imperial council, and believes public opinion ls much more favorable to It even ln
Canada than the speeches of the lead,
ers Indicate. This would secure the
maximum of co-operation between the
different parts of the Empire, but It
would not, ln his opinion, go br enough,
because it would not constantly inform
the home government of colonial feeling
when dealing wllh foreign nations in regard to matters affecting the colonies.
What he thinks is wanted Is a permanent representation of the colonies at the
centre of the Empire by men of such
rank (preferably members of colonial
cabinets), as would enable the council
to assemble at any time.
Tbe idea of obtaining some larger
contribution from the colonies for defence Is in Lord Mllner's view, putting
the cart before the horse. As really
united states, tbe motherland and the
colonies would be invulnerable, but defence depends upon policy.   He Bays:
"Before we can expect the colonies
to contribute, in money or kind, to the
lighting strength of the Empire, In anything like proportion to their wealth
and population, they must feel that they
are partners In any policy which might
Involve a call upon that fighting
strength. The Idea of uslog them aB
mere tributaries, helping to support an
army and navy, In which they have no
part , and in the control of wblch they
have no Bhare Is wrong in principle.
It is a survival of the old system of subordinate dependent states. As an expression of good will, a recognition of
lhe value to the colonies themselves is
Lhe sea-power of the mother country,
colonial contributions to the navy are
Indeed welcome. But we shall never
get much farther on that road, and lt Is
not desirable to attempt to. The true
principle is to encourage the colonies
to develop their own forces, thus increasing the land and sea power of the
Empire as a whole, but to develop them
on lines which will enable them to cooperate in the most effective manner
with the British army and navy, and
with one another."
He concludes by referring to India
and the other dependencies, which are
not colonies, and which by questions
such as Asiatic immigration Into the
colonies, etc., vastly complicate the
work of the home government. Never-
thelesa, he believes that these dependencies may yet aid In solving the problems of Imperial unity.
Naval Programmes of Britain and Germany for 1907.
Loudon, May 7.���In all, this summer
Germany will have six monster ships
building for her navy. These are made
up thus: Two battleships, believed to
be of over 18,000 tons, voted In 1906;
one armored cruiser of 16,000 tons, voted ln 1906; two battleships of 18,700
tons, voted in 1907; one armored cruiser
of 19,200 tons, voted ln 1907.
England has seven monster ships
building or complete; the Dreadnought,
voted ln 1905, complete; the three 17,-
200-ton armored cruisers of the Invincible class, voted ln 1905, completing; and
three battleships of the Superb class,
all 18,600 tons, voted In 1906, building.
In addition, two battleships are to be
voted under the estimates of the present
year, and a third may be laid down lf
the Hague conference fails to secure
disarmament. But these last vessels
will not be laid down till the beginning
of 1908.
Arthur Balfour Reproaches British Gov-
ernmertt for Coldness to
London. May 7.���Rt. Hon. A. J. Balfour, speaking at Albert Hall, said he
could not see anything to which any
free trader could object In desiring to
maintain a united Empire. The attl-
ludesof the present government was one
of pure folly. How long was lt possible for Canada to keep herself open for
arrangement with the mother country on
favorable terms, when the mother noun-
try Inslts upon returning an unfavorable
The policy of preference would' ultimately bo the policy adopted by this
country. (Loud cheers.) The policy
which he and his friends had been advocating had been reinforced the last
few weeks with such emphasis as might
even have Impressed the deaf and the
blind. The spirit and action of the government were of the kind which must
deplete the Empire of Its vital force
and strength.

says that Count Otto Von Wa.dersteln,
wbo was reported to have been killed
at Willowal. California, a few days ago,
is alive and well at Klamath Falls,
where he Is employed on government

Italian Government Adapts Strict Rsgu-
' latlons to -Govern Subjects Going or Coming.
Rome, May 7.���The government today presented a bill to parliament providing tor stricter emigration regulations. Messina is added to Genoa,
Naples and Palermo as ports from
wblch emigrants may leave Italy. The
repatriation of emigrants returning
from America will only be allowed on
steamers authorized by the Italian government. Steamers violating this rule
grill, on arrival in Italian waters, be
lined $20 for each returning emigrant
over the first 20.
The passage rates which emigrants
will be required to pay are to be established by the foreign miniater, Jan. 1st.
and July 1st of each year. Agents ot
emigration companies must deposit
$1,000 as a guarantee against infractions of the regulations. The government can stop the departure of any emigrant if it is considered detrimental to
to their Interests for them to leave
Italy for the port they may have selected. No company will be allowed to car
ry emigrants unless It owns at least
two steamers. Italians who have become naturalised Americans may become Italian citizens by merely reentering the kingdom and declaring they
have established a domicile there, or
without such declaration after three
years have elapsed since they re-entered
the kingdom.
Couldn't Walt Four Years.
Santa Monica, Cal., May 7.���A stake
of $80,000 played against a fortune ot
nearly $1,500,000, with a human life as
the final determining factor, are features of an unusual transaction entered
into yesterday between Henry C. Keating and a syndicate composed of four
local men. In about three years, lf he
lives, KeaUng will fall heir to $1,500,-
000 of an estate to be settled at that
time, when the younger heirs will become of age. The syndicate gave Keating $80,000 for his interest ln the estate, taking the risk ot losing the $80,-
000 if Keating died before the estate
It settled, as the other heirs then come
Into the whole estate of $5,000,000.
Should Keating survive the settlement
of the estate, tho syndicate will make
$1,420,000, less tho interest on the $80,
000, and various legal fees.

Only Remaining Free Trader in Liberal Cabinet Recants���Bai
Session for Government
Ottawa, May8.���Mr. Fielding made
the greatest protectionist speech of his
parliamentary career in defending the'
policy of iron and steel bounties. He
and his party denounced the bounty
policy for many years. When they
came In power they promised to abolish
bounties as soon as the period should
run out for which they had been established. This promise waa broken and
bounties were continued on a downward sUding scale, which Mr. Fielding
declared, would bring them to an end
ln July this year. The minister of
finance boasted of this In many meetings held at places remote from the iron
industry. But this year he has introduced a measure restoring the duties
as they stood two yeara ago, continuing
all of them for four years and some for
six years longer. He explains that ln
the past nine years $8,000,000 has been
paid In bounties and that $8,000,000 will
be expended under the bill Introduced.
Mr. Fielding admitted having received petitions from many agricultural constituencies against these bounties, but
pleaded that the farmers did not understand theae -things. Dr. Chlsholm, Mr.
Lalor, Mr. Wilson ot Lennox, Mr. Lancaster, Mr.' Clements and Mr. Wright,
whose constituents bave protested
against these bounties, spoke for these
electors in the House, some claiming
that the iron was sufficiently protected,
and some that protection should be by
tariff and not by bounties. Mr. Fielding
replied that under this protection communities have been built up, targe increases in custom revenue produced,
the ooal Industry stimulated, working
people kept at home, a fanners' market
provided and so on, until Mr. Foster
described the finance minister as a student in the achool of protection who
though at flrst intractable and. dull
has now become so accompllahed a
scholar that he was starting a school ot
Instruction against his old, doctrine.
It haa been an unfortunate session
for the government Two ministers,
and theae In charge of large spending
departments, have disappeared under a
cloud. Two land-selling scandals In the
west and two land-buying scandals In
the east are among the disgraceful disclosures. More than usual effort has
been made by ministerial members ln
committee to choke off Investigations,
but they have not been wholly successful In concealing the fact. The London
election conspiracy trials are impending
and many disquieting events and developments are In prospect for the administration. There is trouble over the reversal of the old Provincial rights policy as well aa the policy on the tariff
and on bounties. Sir Wilfrid will find
many anxieties awaiting him when he
comes home.
Winnipeg's   Reasonable   Interpretation
Not Satisfactory.
Winnipeg, May 7.���The Lord's Day
Alliance Is not satisfied with the manner In which the city of Winnipeg ts
carrying out the provisions of the
Lord's Day Act, and Rev. W. M. Rochester, secretary of that body for Manitoba, has written the mayor to that effect. In putting the act into force the
Winnipeg board of police commissioners decided to put a broad and reasonable Interpretation upon it.
The Dominion parliament. In framing

Mayor Ashdown, In discussing the
matter, said he was thoroughly In accord with the course now being pursued by the attorney general's department with regard to the act.
Rev. Mr. Rochester waa a caller at
the mayor's office this morning, and discussed the matter with his worship at
considerable length. The alliance seems
to think that the city Is not enforcing

MAY 7. 1907.
'Thu fieople of Nelson, ftnd of Kootenay generally, experienced a feeling of
relief no doubt yesterday when it waa
announced that the coal miners' strike
was finally settled, and that work in the
Kootenay and Alberta collieries would
soon be resumed.
There are several features of the
case that cannot be viewed with complacency. The legislation of tbe Dominion government designed specially
to prevent such occurences broke down
utterly. We are not informed what influence, if any, the deputy minister ot
labor exercised upon the operators, but
we do know that his mission was
sneered at by both parties lo the controversy.
These are matters that will bear investigation later. If it is possible to
.frame legislation that will prevent in-
lermptlona of labor, let them be passed
by all means, lf not, the Trades Dispute Act Jjad better be repealed. It is
ridiculous to keep on the statutes a
law that canoot be enforced.
The other matter Is even more seri
ous. It is intolerable thai an official ol
the Dominion government, acting in the
Interest and in the name of tbe people of
Canada, should be told, in effect, that
a strike was a matter affecting only the
employers and employed, and was no
business of his. It Is hard to say just
what legal status Mr. MacKenzfe King
iias ln such circumstances, but the fact
lhat the incumbent of such ao office
1 "was treated disrespectfully reveals a
spirit of lawlessness that must not be
allowed to develop ln Canada.
Before the coal strike was settled
another strike began. The miners and
smeltermeo of the Boundary district
have demanded Increased pay or shorter hours or both.
While the country Is not threatened
-with the same evils in tho present case
as in the last, the cessation of work in
the metalliferous mines o*! the Boundary district is a verj- serious matter.
It Is significant that the strike has
been declared against companies and
managers who have been proverbially
fortunate in avoiding strikes in the
past, and have always managed to preserve friendly relations with their employees. The strike is not aggravated,
like that of the coal miners by any personal .antagonisms.
But the absence of irritating causes
only Indicates more strpfgly that the
strike Is serious. Strikes are often due
to sudden Irritations, but they are most
serious when they are cool and deliberate.
It has been known for a long Ume
that the miners of the Boundary were
preparing for such a move. The operators have foreseen but have steadily declared that compliance with the men's
demands is Impossible.
It would appear therefore that the
strike may be prolonged and one of the
most promoting districts of the interior
may suffer heavily in consequence.
For an editor to discuss in his editorial columns his difficulties and triads
ln respect of telegraph reports, mall
correspondence, insufficient advertising
support, and kindred things that vex
the soul of an editor who Is also a proprietor, is rather like talking shop in
the drawing room. Apart from that objectionable feature the on'y ones who
really suffer from a local shower of
abuse on telegraph service are the hard
working and oblfglng local officials and
operators. It is true that the press service in Kootenay Is poor. Ii is also true
that Kootenay is probably the hardest
of all habitable places ln which to maintain telegraphic connections. The wires
must run along mountain sides. A snow
or mud slide or a bush fire may In an
hour or less provide work for the linemen for half a day. As to the condition in which despatches are received,
something must depend on the temper
o. the editor. The present telegraph
editor of Tbe Dally Canadian has never
complained of being unable to Interpret
a despatch.
Canadians generally will not be displeased If the rumor should prove correct that Lord Strathcona Is to be made
a duke. Soldiers, statesmen and poets
are rewarded by patents as barons, viscounts, sometime! even aB earls.   Per
haps it is In keeping with the spirit of
the age that higher ranks of lhe peerage should be reserved for millionaires.

as well as a disgrace to Canada.
Kev. W, M. Rochester, western secretary of the Dominion Lord's Day Alliance, Is not handicapped by any diffidence or by a too humble sense of his
rights. He is still wiidly indignant at
British Columbia for refusing to enforce the Lords Day Act. He is no*
reported as scolding the authorities at
Winnipeg for not enforcing the act
strictiy enough. We hope Mr. Rochester will cuntiuue. A little more of such
impudent dictation and the act will become inoperative everywhere. It is men
like Mr. Rochester who alienate from
religious work of all kinds the sympathies of broad minded aud intelligent

San Francisco. May 7.���San Francisco
is again in the throes of a bitter struggle. For the third time since the disastrous fire a year ago San Francisco
is walking because of the declaration
of a strike on all the street car lines ot
the city oy the carmen's union. The
telephone girls are out on strike as are
also the Iron workers. Transportation
facilities are crippled. With no telephone serivce business is greatly handicapped. A committee from the civil
league of San Francisco yesterday
called on Hy T. Scott, president of the
Pacific States Telephone and Telegraph
company, President Calhoun, of the
union of railway men. and President
Cornelius, of the carmen union, requested them in the interest of the city and
of the public to submit their differences
to arbitration. The committee met with
no success.
The carmen have organized an extensive picket detail at each car barn.
The picket* are changed every few
hours and according to President Cornelius have been instructed to permit
no violence. Large crowds surrounded
the car barns at Turk and Fillmore
streets, where 100 strike breakers are
lodged. Beyond hooting and jeering no
act of violence was committed. Heavy-
shutters and iron screens were placed
on the windows of all the barns and
car houses. At the car barns at Hays
and Grand avenue, where i6 situated
the company's principal commissary department, intense activity prevails to
prepare for the housing and feeding of
a large number of strike breakers.
Notices have been posted in al! the
car barns that employees will be expected to report for duty on Tuesday morning or consider themselves discharged.
The situation so far has been peaceful and there are no indications of impending trouble. At the same time
every preparation Is being made hy the

Thanking our patrons for past favors
I hope to merit a continuance of their
state and civil authoritities to prevent
any breach of (he peace. After an exciting meeting lasting four hours the electrical workers' union and the union of
linemen failed to reach an agreement on
a proposition to strike in sympathy wiih
the telephone girls. A compromise was
effected whereby definite action was
postponed until the executive committee
shall have conferred with the officials
of the telephone company, when the
company will be informed that unless
the union of the girls is recognized the
linemen and electricians will wulk out.
The company is giving a little better
service than during the first days of the
strike and the assertion is made that it
will be able to hold its position until
the striking operators return to their

The Daily Canadian
Employeea    of    Boundary    Mines    and
Smeltera Refuse Concessions
Offered  by Companies.
Coincident with the shut down occasioned by the coke shortage, comes
the situation that the miners of the
Houndary deemed this the proper time
to ask for an Increase in wages generally, and the matter is now being considered by the several companies Interested here.
A short time ago a committee of
Phoenix Miners' Union, No. 8, consisting of President Loutltt, H. Heldman
and H. D. Mitchell, waited on Local
Manager HodgeB, of Ihe Granby Co.,
and requested that the wages of the
men be raised 50 cents per day, the
prevailing rate being <3 for muckers
and $.1.50 for miners. After considering lhe matter, the companies interest
ed made a proposition to the miners
for a ten per cent, raise to all men
working underground, with a provision
that men should work 24 shifts to be entitled to the Increase, this proviso Itself
being so framed as to protect the men
from being laid off without cause before the expiration of the time the raise
should take effect after starting work.
Lust Saturday night the miners, at
the regular weekly meeting of the union, declined to accept the proposition,
and so notified Mr. Hodges. Another
conference between the companies' representatives and the committee of tbe
union was arranged to take place last
night, the results of which were not
known as the Pioneer went to preBs last
evening. It Is understood that the carpenters also have made a request for a
raise from $4 to $4.50 per day, and that
a raise has been asked for by the employees at the Granby smelter.
When It Is considered that a serious
labor difficulty has never yet occurred
with the Granby Co. In the ten years
that lt has been operating, and that Mr.
Hodges and his men have always gotten along on the best of term in the
past there is every reason for thinking
that, by a little give and take, the men
and the companies will come together
and reach an agreement on the wagfe
scale. In fact, lt is the universal opinion
that, if the coke question were aettled,
the wage scale In the Boundary would
soon be adjusted. As the mines must
remain Idle for a Ume .however, on account of lack of coke, it Is thought best
all around to take time to consider the
wage scale In all Its aspects and reach
an agrtienient between the parties interested that will last and will insurt* an
uninterrupted run ol mines and smelters for years to come.
At Uie meeting last  night those ex-

South  African War Men  in Northweat
Denied Land Grants.
Winnipeg, May 6.���Members of the
South African Volunteers' Association
In the Canadian West are greatly Incensed these days that their petition
for land grants in the western provinces, although (being passed upon
unanimously by both sides of the federal house, has been shelved for another
year or two. They state that they have
been treated unfairly in the matter
right along. In the eastern provinces
the veterans have ali received grants
of land long ere this, hut the westerners say they are compelled to wait until
the thousands of foreigners and Britishers have come in and secured their
pick and choice of the country.
The members of the association figure that the idea in deferring the granting of the lands is ln order that this
might be made a plank in the political
platforms at the next Dominion elections.
Frank E. Sprague, the secretary ln
Winnipeg for the combined associations
of the West, Is flooded with applications
and enquiries from all over the country and the members cannot understand the delay.
It will be remembered that when the
men organized lt was with the object
of securing grants of land. The Manitoba organization flrst petitioned the
local government, but finding that this
was of no avail they secured the co-operation of the volunteers ln Saskatchewan and Alberta, and instituted an active campaign, during which several
members of parliament pledged their
support, with the result tbat the bill
passed unanimously.
The men say that while the old saying with regard to large bodies moving
Rlowly may hold good as a rule, still in
view of the land being so rapidly taken
np by outsiders they think It behooves
the authorities to take immediate action in the matter.

Form of Oath.
Within a few days thc kissing of the
bible as a form of taking the oath will
pass away in the courts of Quebec province. In the fut'ire It will be necessary
merely to rest the right hand upon tho
bible while taking the oath to tell thc
truth, the whole truth and nothing but
the truth. The statute whicli enacts
this change In the form of tho oath
was passed during the last session of
the Quebec legislature, and cs���nes into
fssrc, ssn May 13th, Oil days after lt has
been approved by the lieutenant-governor. At Ihe presenl time, In Ihe
criminal courts the kissing us' the bible
Is no longer Insistesl upon, as ln ull
courts under federal jurisdiction, Ihe
practice was made optional somss time
ago. The witness merely (ouches (he
bible, or lu some cuss's merely raises
his right liaiui and makes oath in that
fashion, If be declares that he docB nol
believe in the holy svungellsts.
