Announcement on Anglo-
French Relations
COUNTRIES CEMENTED
Spain, France and Italy Brought
Into Cordial Relation with England Sans Diplomacy.
Paris, Dec. 24���The Associated
Press has obtained some Important Information regarding the progress of
lhe Anglo-French relations which led
to the recent erroneous reports that
the entente of 1HU1 had been supplemented by a military and naval convention. Mutual co-operation on sea
end land lu the face of un aggressive
move againsi either is regarded as assured both at Paris and in Downing
Btreet,
The machinery of diplomacy has,
however, beeu scrupulously avoided In
the accomplishment of this result. No
notes or drafts of conventions have
been exchanged. Nothing has passed
through Ihe only channels recognized
by these governments as qualified to
bind lbe countries which could be challenged by Germany, as aimed at her
"Isolation." Nevertheless, In a subtler
and quite as effective fashion tbe combination against Germany, so far as
France and England are concerned, can
be considered "fait accompli," the other undertakings of diplomacy which Is
called in England the policy of binding
Germany over to keep the peace, lh-
cludea Ihe Russian-English entente,
Ihe cementing of closer relations between Spain and England, the weaning
away of Italy from the triple alliance
ure making progress.
lt was regarded as preferable to lay
thc basin of mutual support primarily
In a broad and deep friendship between the first two countries. The
"entente corllalo" adjusting outstanding differences had no sooner been
signed thnn the campaign of friendship
was inaugurated. All kinds of visits
were exchanged, furnishing occasions
for cementing the new-found friend
ship, and now a great Anglo-French
exposition In London has been planned
tor 1UII8- Matters had reached such a
stage during the Moroccan crisis that
England's physical as well as diplomatic support was certain had the sv ord
been unshea ed. At that time military and nnvul authorities of tbe conn
tries wero ln communcntion, and after
lhe crisis hod passed they proceeded
to make, "In a purely technical fash-
Ion," plans of cooperation by land nnd
sea to meet oeftaln eventualities. So

countries become, that last Biimmur

FIRST   RED CROSS PRESIDENT.
Clsrs Barton Will Celebrate Christmas
and Birthday Tomorrow,
Washington, Dec. 24.���Though few
would Judge It from her looks, Miss
Clara Hurt.su, the famous Red Cross
nurse, will be 80 years old tomorrow.
A.ter more than 40 years of devotion
to charitable work, which has carried
her to all parts of the world, Miss Barton has retired to a quiet and peaceful
life In a little home In Glen Echo, a
suburb of Washington, on the banks
of the Potomac, ln spite of her 80
years, she ls active physically and mentally, and while frail and small ln
body, she abows but slightly the effects
of her long and strenuous life.
Few women of America have had a
more Interesting career than Miss Barton. She waa born December 20, 1821,
at Oxford, Miss., and Is the daughter
of Captain Stephen Barton, who fought
under General Anthony Wayne. In her
early career Miss Barton was a school
teacher. She founded a free school at
Bordentown, N. J., which, beginning
with six pupils, quickly grew until lt
numbered nearly 600. This work she
gave up to accept a place ln the patent
office at Washington, which she held
until tbe outbreak of the Civil war.
Giving up her government position
Miss Barton advertised In the papers
of Worcester, Mass., that she would receive stores and money for wounded
soldiers at the front, which she would
personally distribute. In 1881 the
American Association of the Red Cross
waa formed and Miss Barton chosen
its first president, which position she
occupied until the reorganization of the
society a year or two ago. Realizing
that Bhe waa no longer young enough
to direct the affairs of the society she
yielded the management to other
hands.
Carry-Over Rate.
London, Dec. 24.���Dealers In Americans on the stock exchange met with
an unpleasant shock this morning
when they found the carry-over rate
had been fixed at 10 to 12 per cent.
I'he high rate was attributed to the
large amount of stock to be carried
here for American account. Prices
opened around par and subsequently
eased off fractionally and then hardened somewhat. The undertone was
considered to be good ln view of tne
unusual carryover rate.
Christmas Promotions.
Psrls, Dec. 24.���Among the Christmas army promotions Is that of Colonel Andre, who was a member of the
court martial which retired Colonel
(now General) PIcquart. the war minister. Andre Is promoted from general

San Francisco, Dec. 24.���Resolutions
denouncing "President Roosevelt's
message to congress on the Japanese
situation and resenting his Interference In the domestic affairs of this
state, expressing want ot confidence In
Secretary Metcalfe, and declaring his
report to the president on the Japanese question" to be utterly unworthy
of credence ln any particular, and containing numerous misstatements and
misrepresentations obviously one-sided
and grossly exaggerated" were adopted
at a mass meeting of 2600 persons held
yesterday by the Japanese and Corean

OTTAWALETTER
Graft Rampart in Every
Department
ONTARIO IMMIGRATION
Requires Sine Agents to Travel on
High Salaries to Find Places
for New Comers.
Ottawa, Dec. 24.���During last week
much interesting information haB been
obtained by answers to questions. Referring to dismissals or suspensions In
the Immigration department, Mr. Oliver stated that one officer waa report.
ed by the audit department as having
claimed and received since July, 1906,
the sum of |285 for Pullman expenses
that were never Incurred. Another received |239 on false claims ot the
���same kind. A third obtained 2339, a
fourth 2349, another 180, still another
2136, and' the sixth got oft with 2270.
The same officers had charged and received from |200 to |600 each as expenses for meals which the auditor, on
examining the vouchers, had struck
out. This discovery, Implicating half
a dozen immigration officials, who
worked and agreed together, simply
shows that the system of graft established In high places In thc Interior
department Ib spreading throughout
the ranks.
The department of railways seems
to be an easy one for a tired official
to work. Mr. Emmerson brought down
a statement on Monday, explaining
that one of his clerks, whose pay has
been Increased by 00 per cent, since
1899, bad been absent 190 days since
July, 1906. Part of the time he was
on leave without any reason given, and
for the rest he furnished a medical
certificate. The superior officer at
Moncton refused to certify the payroll
In his case, and the delinquent went
to the general manager, who consulted
the nil sister, and payment for the
whole time was ordered. The clerk ln
question -_t> ou other occasions shown
thnt he has a tcmllar pull with Mr.
Emmerson. It i_ an Influence which
does not depend on his efficiency in
the public service.
It may not be generally known that
nine Immigration agents are employed
in Ontario at 2100 a month each and
travelling expenses, "to assist In distributing farm help." All of them
were active politicians before their appointment, and their connection with
the political machine Is ln some cases
retained. In this list le the politician
who was returned In 1899 as the member for North Huron, after the by-
election In which Mr. Prltchett's school
for ballot switching Instruction had
been successfully engaged.
Attention has frequently been called
to the enormous expense of governing
the Yukon, with Its population of 8000
people. No one bas been able to explain whal these high priced officials,
whose salary and maintenance costs
the people of Canada more than double the total revenue of the district,
and amount to about 2100 a head of
the population, can find to do. Some
light Is thrown upon the subject by an
answer which Mr. Oliver gave on Wednesday to an enquiry. The minister
stated that Chief Commissioner Mclnnes Is at present absent from the
district. So are Judge Dugas and
Judge Craig, F. T. Conglon .legal adviser of the Yukon government, Mr.
Burns, tha territorial secretary, Mr.
Brown, the clerk, and Mr. Lallberte,
the librarian. The government Is not
quite sure whether Mr. Olrusrd. the
registrar, and Mr. Dugas were at home
or not

Qreenwood Miners    Patronise Church
Fntlval and Suffer Fine.
Greenood, Dec. 24.���A resolution was
passed at the last meeting of tbe
miners' union, which bas since fur
nlshed amusement for the members.
A Boclal was held In one of the local
churches at which a number of the
Greenwood union, Including the secretary, ware present. There wu, of
course, tbe usual bunfeed at the social, and the ladles of the church had
engaged a Chinaman to help. The resolution, after the usual whereases, reciting the duties and obligations ot
onion men and more especially the
members of the W. F. M., resolved
tbat those attending a certain church
social be censured snd fined 21 each
for patronising a place employing
Astatic labor.
The resolution further stated that
the mover had been informed that the
celectlal had even scabbed on Asiatic
prices, having worked five hours for
00 cents. One of those fined said
he hadn't been ln a church for ten
years. Others promised to be more
circumspect In their choice of com-
pany ln the future. The resolution
was, of course, a Joke, and will be reconsidered and rescinded at the next
meeting, but lt caused some hard
thinking by those accused, and a whole
lot of amusement for those "not
guilty."

Chicago, Dec 24.���In England, Germany, France, Switzerland, Italy and
the United States there hss been a
steadily-growing Impression tbat the
schools are not being aa well utilised
bb they might be for tbe purpose of
moral training and development of citizenship. A conference to consider the
whole matter waa held ln London last
autumn, resulting ln the organisation
ot the International Society for the
Propagation of Moral Training ln the
Public Schools. The American branch
has just completed its organisation by
the election of an executive committee.
Clifford Barnes, of Chicago bas been
chosen to act as secretary and executive officer, and James Bpeyer ot
New York, as treasurer.
This year the International association ls to make a systematic effort to
collect Information aa to the beat work
being done ln moral training In the
schools ot Great Britain, Germany,
Switzerland, Italy, America and Japan,
and for this purpose will send out several expert commissioners. There reports will be published In the autumn
of 1907. An International congress Is

GREEN RESIGNED
Personal Business Absorbs All AttenDon
RECONSTRUCT CABINET
Late Commissioner Remains Loyal
to Premier���Predicts Unquestioned Return of Government.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Victoria, B. C, Dec. 24.���Late on
Saturday evening the announcement
waa made that Hon. R. F. Green, chief
commissioner of lands and works ln
th* provincial cabinet, had resigned.
Enquiry elicits the Information that
the announcement waa correct Hon.
Mr. Green exp'lcltly statea that only
private business reasons are accountable for his resignation. There have
been no cabinet difference* and Mr.
Green remains a loyal supporter ot
Premier McBride and his government
Seen this morning, Mr. Green expressed his confidence that the government In the forthcoming election,
will carry the country with a sweeping
victory.
For a time those closely ln touch
with the affairs of the government
have known that Hon. R. F. Green haa
been seriously contemplating resignation from the charge of the department of lands and works. The strenuous attention necessary to the work
of tbe department has seriously Interfered with several Important business
enterprises ln which Mr. Green Is Interested.
Coming at this particular time, just
before the sessions of the house, th*
resignation will be m surprise to the
country, but th* announcement waa
withheld until such time aa the cabinet
rearrangement la already well settled.
For some time the vacancy In the cabinet haa been a matter of agreeable negotiation on the part of the government and the present opportunity will
be seised to fill all vacancies, so that
when the house meets the cabinet will
be complete. I
Universal regret will be expressed
both by Liberals and Conservatives
that Hon. Mr. Green haa found It imperative tn the Interests of Ms personal business to leave the department
at such a time. During hla incumbency ln the office of chief the work
of that department ha* grown phenomenally; and the Income from tbe resources of landa and timber leasee
multiplied many time..
It Is extremely satisfactory to ba
able to announce that no cabinet dispute or difference ot opinion between
ministers haa had anything to do with
Mr. Green's resignation. His announce'
ment that he remains loyal to the premier and the government must be accepted a* final In respect of rumor*
Initiated by the unfriendly and those
politically opposed to Mr. (jreen.
Announcement will be made In a few
days of the rearrangement of .the cab.
Inet and the meeting of the hQuae.
