Fifty Cbnts a Month
Thaw Murder Trial Ends
as Expected
I After 80 Days Hearing and Strain on
All Parties No Conclusion Reached���Probable Sequel.
New Yssrk. April 12.���The trial of
Harry K. Thaw for the murder of Stan-
,sril White, which began on Jan. 23rd
Inml has lasted 80 days, ended thla after-
uiisi'.i In a  disagreement of  the  Jury,
and  their report  of  that   fact  to  the
Thaw will return to the Tombs pend-
lint a new I rial which cannot take place
until nexl fall.   Presumably application
inr ball will be made and granted aa ln
Ithe case of Nan Patterson.
New York. April 12���Another long,
frointartlcss night was passed at the
lijllual courts building by the 12 men
lu whom ilie question of Harry Thaw's
1 gulll nr innocence lias been committed,
ausl this morning found them all but
worn out by their protracted wrestling
wiili the grim problem. The room lu
which ihey were confined ls small and
0 Mains only a long table and some
chairs. This, of course, meant added
ilieplesBtics and fatigue. Now and then
tin* doors were unlocked by the guards
to allow one or another of Ihe Jurymen
iu take some exercise In the hallway,
but this was all the relief from the bur-
sk n of deciding for or against the prls-
ssiisji'a life. A most hopeful sign Is tho
Isn't shut ilie jury has made no mention
ul a hiijicls'ss disagreement. That there
h a deadlock, Is certain, but from the
lasi that the jury has not reported It or
ask* si to Iss- sllschnrged on that ground,
coiiis's the Inference that they must
have some hope of coming together or
thai tin'; arc determined to light It out
until physical enslurance is exhausted.
Rumors were  rife  again   during Ihe
night as lo the probable result of the
| jury's deliberation!, but ns was the case
j yesterday, all were merely guesses.
As (ur Hairy Thaw, his good spirits.
ds-sislie the nerve racking suspense,
were considered not far short of mar-
vellous. He sat In the prisoner's pen
for many hours, bul as the night went
on ami no word came from the jury, he
did not lose any of the sanguine air
which characterized IiIb demeanor almost frssm the time the jury began Its
deliberations. It was he who comforted
his wife and mother, although ostensibly, It was they who were by his side
is help him bear the anxiety. Thoy
stayed with him until midnight, when
thera was no further hope of a verdict,
notwithstanding they had suffered a
weary day as llie rosult of the anxiety
ol waiting, anil the bolsterousness of
the crowd thai had thronged In the
streets about the court house.
After being out for 38 hours the 12
i nun who have In their hands the fate
of Harry K. Thaw, went to bronkfast
shortly after 7 o'clock this morning.
Throughout the night their discussions
"ere oontlnued, but still an ugroemont

Dlatrlct Attorney Jerome said today
that the longest period of confinement
he had i-ver known a Jury to endure ln
this Jurisdiction waa 4S hours. The
court of appeal approved th*-. course of
the court ln that Instance because there
was uo attempt to coerce the jury.
It was persistently reported this
morning I hat the members uf the jury
are dlvidnd !i to 3, but just what
groundl the division Is based on could
not be determined. Some said nine
were for conviction of nmnnlnuKhter.
wllh throe for acquittal, while others
declared It was three for conviction and
nine for acquittal on the grounds of Insanity.
This report aa to 9 to '. division was
lent a certain degree of color by the
statement of persons who had watched
thn Juryroom window early this morning. They said the Jufy was arranged
for discussion In three groups, with one
man In the centre of each shaking his
head and refusing to concur ln the ex-
presaed opinions of the others. The
utoriea went bo far as to name the
Ihree Jurors who would not be moved
by the arguments of their fellows.
Justice Fitzgerald, It developed today,
had a long conference last Tuesday
night with Messrs. David McClure and
Peter B. Olney, who were members of
.he commission fn lunacy which examined Thaw and declared him Insane. It
was said the judge probably wanted to
consult with the commissioners' as to
their views as to whether they would
consider It wise to relaBe Thaw In the
event of a verdict of acquittal on the
grounds of Insanity. The court room
waB thrown open to the newspapers at
10:30 today. Justice Fitzgerald
reached the court house at 10:30.
The Thaw family arrived shortly before the court room was opened and
entered the consultation room adjoining. Again hundreds of perBona on thc
streets crowded around the doors In nn
nttempt to get a close view of the women ln the case.
New York. April 12. 3:30 p. m.���The
Jury In the Thaw case reported a hope-
lesB disagreement.

Washington, April 12���That all ofthe
Central American republics are looking
to the present state of warfare between
Nicaragua antl Honduras to result In
an agreement for permanent peace ln
Central America, waa developed today
by general discussion at the state department.
With that end In view, the negotla.
tlons looking to a cessation of hostilities
will not go so far aa to take up the
subject of permanent peace, but will
leave this broad question to a confer-
ence to be held in Washington or lhe

are to occupy the Important posttons of
New Orleans, April 12.���According to
a cablegram received by the officials of
the Fruit Despatch company here, President Manuel llonllla, of Honduras, has
surrendered to the Nicaragua forces.
The cablegram came from Managua,
Nicaragua, and was signed by President
Jos. 8. Zelayn. No details were given
olher than that thc Bonllla surrendered
yesterday. Other advices received,
however, were to tho effect that Honllla

The Fort Steele board wired endorsement of Nelson's action re the lead
Another letter from the board of

others.   The suggestion was ador'ed.
A letter from Jamaica on foreign

Tho report on tho meeting of the Associated Hoards of Trado by R. K. Hedley was then read. The proceedings

The question of the advertising of
fruit land was then brought up by J. J.
Campbell, who had given notice at a
foi mer meeting. He disclaimed personal knowledge but knew that there
was a general bollof that some of tho
advertising amounted to misrepresentation.
Tho prnaldont remnrked that tbo for
mer very brief discussion hnd elicted
first a telegram nnd Ihon a leUer from
Winnipeg,    explaining some exaggera
tions and promising amendment of life.
The reading of the let-fir caused
great amusement; lt cloned with an accusation that tlie objection had been
raised liy_rlv_l land agents
W. G. Gillett then moved, according
to notice, that the postmaster general
be petitioned! to have letter boxes
placed In the outlying and suburban
portions of the city. He stated that the
poBt office Inspector of the district had
stnted lhat such a request was justified
and would crtainly be granted.
G. C. Hodge asked why the street
could uot be utilized for the purpose.
The mayor replied that the postal au-
thorlties would not accept such au ar-
A committee, consisting of W. G. Gillett, D. C. McMorris and I. fl. Nelson,
waa then appointed to secure signatures
to such a iietltlon.
T. Morley reported that the late commissioner, R. A. Renwick. hud promised early attention to the roads In the
Nelson district.
After some general discussion W. G.

The president then announced that
the board had received from the government and the city the privilege of

Calgary, April 12.���In addressing the
farmers of the Cardston Agricultural
district, under the auspices of the
A. P. A. Matthew Snow, deputy warehouse commissioner, Winnipeg, pointed
out that the great trouble with shipping
grain to the west was found in the fact
that the buyer was compelled to take
the weights of the seller. Asked If the
terminal at Vancouver (proposed by the
Central organization over one year ago)
would not overcome that difficulty, he
stated that he did not think that It
would, owing to the fact that much of
the grain was converted Into flour this
side of the mountains. ��
Mr. Snow stated that a receiving elevator at Calgary would be the best remedy for the situation. It must be remembered that thero is scarcely likely
to be any satisfaction between the farmers until the proper government weighing Bcnles are made available for shipments west. The shipments east are
well care for In this regnrd with the
terminals at Port Arthur and Fort
William. It was shown by Mr. Snow,
one of the best authorities on grain in
tbe Dominion, that from now on British
Columbia was going to make big and
repeated calls for Ihe grain of Southern
Alherln. Something then Bhould be
done and no lime lost.
The building of the receiving elevator at Calgary should be thoroughly discussed by the board of trade, and the
Warehouse and Royal Grain Commissions petitioned in regard to the same.
The unsolicited statement of Mr. Snow
should be a great Incentive towards the
proper steps being taken to locate the
the elevator here.
This would not In the least deter
from locating a terminal at Vancouver,
as suggested by the Alberta Farmers'
Association. The receiving elevator at
Calgary has another mlsBlon to perform
and another sphere to fill. The meeting In question was held by Mr. Snow
nt Cardston on Wednesday last and tho
farmers of Cardston district were out
to listen to his able address on elevators and the Manitoba Grain Act.
Ottawa, April 12.���Hon. H. R. Bin-
meison, minister of railways has disappeared from the ministry in consequence of personal charges of reports
following the "wine, women and graft"
episode. He tendered his resignation
on Monday, April 1st, and it was accepted by the premier the same day.
The circumstances Immediately leading
to this event are as follows: Last week
Mr. Bourassa In moving for a committee of inquiry Into charges against ministers and members, referred to the suggestion that ministers had been "put
out of hotels and public places of amusement where they had been guilty of mis-
conduct with women." Mr. Fowler had
not mentioned any such incident but
several government journals, notably
the St. John organ of Mr. Emmerson,
demanded that Mr. Fowler should prove
a case agalnat some minister or be
branded as a slanderer. Much violent
language of that sort was used, which
finally brought out the response from
the "Fredericton Gleaner," that the minister of railways was the person Intended by the hotel reference.
So the matter stood till the House
met on Tuesday after the Easter holiday. Mr. Emmerson had authorized a
contradiction of the report and announced that at the first sitting of the
House he would arise to a question of
personal privilege, declare the story untrue and announce that he had taken
action against the Journals which had
published it It was not so well known
In advance that Mr. Emmerson would
resign his offlce, and it was not suspected that the premier would so promptly
accept It But when the House met
Sir Wilfrid was the first to speak and
made the announcement that Mr. Emmerson w��b no longer his colleague.
Sir Wilfrid read the letter of resignation In which he declared that the newspaper reference concerning him was
"false on its face," that he was taking
proceedings against the papers and was
conscious that he was "in a position to
be exonerated in the eyes of the country and yourself." Mr. Emmerson went
on to offer his resignation, explaining
that he did not wish to be an obstacle
in the premier's departure for the colonial conference.
Six days before this Sir Wilfrid had
told the House what he had done when
statements came to him concerning thc
moral conduct o. Mr. Hyman. He sent
a mutual friend to the accused minister
to bring back from Mr. Hyman a state!-
ment as to the truth of the reports. Mr.
Hyman sent word that the statements
were not true and he remains to this
day a member of the ministry, though
he offered to resign.
In Mr. Emmerson's case the premier
had Mr. Emmerson's contradiction at
flrst hand, both verbally and by letter.
He had his statements that he was going Inlo tlte courts to vindicate his character, and that he would declare to
the House that the reports were false
Yet In this case Sir Wilfrid at once ac
cepted the resignation, sent It to the
governor general, and In his reply to
Mr. Emmerson did not even formally
accept the statement that the charges
were untrue.
In the Houso Mr. Emmerson asked
for the suspension of judgment and
lliis will be accorded him even by his
opponents, whether his leader has given
it or not. Much allowance ls mad-> for
tt public man placed aB Mr. Emmerson
was, and his appeal was heard with
courtesy and kindness. But Mr. Km
merson made one statement which was
not allowed to drop. Ho said that "lf
political warfare Is to be carried on
with weaponB from the gutter of slander and personal gossip  those on
this side will not alone suffer," adding
that "thore Is evidence In existence
against others, evidence that has not
been purchased, evidence that will be
strong,   powerful,    cogent     It is
within the grasp of this House." Mr.
Emmerson was not ln his place the
next day nor on that evening, nor has
hd been there since, but as soon as the
official report of that statement was In
Mr. Borden's hands he brought it to the
attention of tho  House.    The opposi
tion leaders declared -amid applause
thut Mr. Eiuuierson had said too much
or too little. He must go farther or retract. If he knew or could prove anything against the honor of anyone of
the opposition members Mr. Borden demanded that he should produce his statement and offer his proofs. If he would
do so, the opposition leader declared
that he would give him every possible
assistance to probe the matter to the
end. He proposed to renew this demand
the first time he saw Mr. Emmerson in
tbe chamber.
Once niere the premier Interposed
with his points of order. Sir Wilfrid
held thnt ns no one had moved at the
Utne when Mr. Bmmvrson sjioke to
have IiIb words "taken down' 'reference
could not be made to them afterward.
Against this contention Mr. Borden protested, lie showed that this ancient
and obsolete rule belonged to a country and a time which had no official report of the debates. It was absolutely
necessary In the absence of an official
reporter fo have someone take the
words down as they were spoken so
they could not be disputed afterward.
Bnt the Canadian House of Commons
bas. a Hansard staff, and the words of
memberB are printed the next days and
submitted ln proof to the members
themselves, so that after revision they
cannot repudiate their language. In
this case there was no possible doubt
that Mr. Emmerson used the words attributed to him. It Is the regular custom to accept the official report In auch
casta. Sir Wilfrid's point of order Is
a mere quibble and ls one more effort
to evade issues and shut out investigations.

It may be some time yet before any
report is made to parliament or to the
government by the commission investigating Uie allegations of a "combine"
among British Columbia lumber manufacturers.
But the mere hearing or evidence on
the subject has been a great relief to
thc lumbermen of this province.
The inquiry was ordered on account
of general complaints from tbe prairie
provinces that exorbitant prices were
charged for lumber, and that a "combine" existed  to maintain such  prices.
lt is an undoubted fact that the prices
of lumber have risen. When the influx
into Manitoba and the new provinces
began several years ago, plenty of lumber for building was available at very
low prices. This condition wan due to
several causes, chief of which was thc
competition of Washington mills which
were selling their products in Canada
at slaughter prices.
The change in conditions is also due
to seven1! causes, most of which are obvious. Washington lumber is now not
available, the prices obialnable in the
Umttd States having nearly doubled.
Thc cutting and manufacture of lumber
in Biltiuh Columbia are now much more
expensive than before, the timber nearest to the mills being almost exhausted,
and the cost of wages, equipment and
supplies having increased about 50 per
Consequently the prices ruling a few
years ago, which even then represented
only the cost of production, would now
involve ruinous loss to the mill men of
British Columbia.
Under the circumstances an advance
In price was imperative. The evidence
given before the commission showed
conclusively that even now the profits
of the mill men are very small in proportion to the amount of money invested in the industry.
While something like uniformity of
prices has probably been secured it was
shown that there has been no agreement In restraint of trade, and that
therefore there is no ground for government interference.
The representatives of the British Columbia lumber manufacturers also
plainly showed to the members of the
commission that another advance in
prices would be forced upon them in
the very near future.
But a feature of the case of which explanations are certain to be demanded
by the people of British Columbia, is
the absence and utter silence of their
seven representatives in the House of
Commons. Not one act or word of assistance was given to the men representing one of the chief industries of
tlie province, in presenting their case
before the commission, a cnse of exceptional difficulty as conditions in British Columbia are little understood in
the East.
Here was no question of party politics. It was a conflict of interest between British Columbia and the prairies. Both were entitled to a hearing
and to sympathetic consideration. The
compainants received every assistance
from their representatives, but the
British Columbin men were left to bear
tho burden of their fight alone. The
Sordid Seven have peculiar ideas of
their duties as representatives.
The resolution of the Associated
B::ards of Trade, endorsed last night
by the Nelson board, calling upon the
provincial government to invstigate the
causes of recurring coal and coke famines, is one of great imi>ortance. A
genuine Investigation would open up
many questions, and results could hardly be predicted. Coal companies, of
course, have the same property rights
as other corporations or Individuals.
But their right must be modified by the
effect of their enjoyment and exercise
of it on the public welfare. Coal is a
necessity and might, with more propriety than most other commodities, be
plnced under natioual control as regards its production and .distribution
But such a step will not be necessary
If the companies can be taught, by
force if necessary, that their properties
are public trusts. It is intolerable
that Canadian coal should continue to
be exported to a foreign country, when
the scarcity of it at home is causing
delay of trains and steamers, restriction of industry, closing of public buildings, and general inconvenience and In
some cases suffering. Government
must claim and exercise the right to
prevent auch occurrences.
It will be the unanimous judgment of
the citizens that Mayor Gillett has done
well to fill the vacant position of city
engineer as soon as possible. Although
the heavy task which kept Mr. McCulloch In office against his private interests, is completed, there ls always work
to be done which requires an engineer.
The laying of a six-inch main through
Fairvlew to the C. P. R. shipyards ls of
itself a big enough enterprise to warrant a temporay appointment. Fortunately for the city at this juncture
the new appointee happens to he an
architect and his services as such will
be most valuable in the preliminary
work, at least, required for the new
school building. In her two engineers
Nelson has been fortunate. Much of the
work of the last three years could nut
have been done by an engineer who was
not also a surveyor.
Mr. Borden's protest in the House of
Commons and the way it has been ignored show how low that body has
fallen. Sir Wilfrid Laurier declaimed
against the cruelty of exposing the private and personal affairs of members by
parliamentary inquisition. Mr. Borden
reminded the House that the government's insurance commission had already done worse, it had so collected
its evidence that suggestions of dishonesty had been made against a number of members under circumstances
that precluded the possibility of a reply
or explanation. But they were Conservative members. Obviously Sir Wilfrid's chief consideration is the old
one:  "Whose ox is gored?"
J. A. Macdonald's analytical mind Is
utterly exhausted as a political asset.
Mr. Macdonald has neither the wit to
construct a policy nor the courage to
advocate. So long as the Liberals are
in a hopeless minority and have no aim
or purpose but obstruction he will do
as well as any other. But when they
recover from the last contest sufficiently to hope again, Mr. Macdonald will
have to go.
With all respect to all his -predecessors, we doubt if any mayor of Nelson has given more service, or more
valuable, to the city than Mayor Gillett.
He is ever on the alert for possibilities
and op port un Ues, and those who occasionally make suggestions almost invariably find that the mayor has already
thought of  and  Investigated   them.
The suggestion for the organization
of a Canadian Club in Nelson has met
with very general favor. All that is
necessary now to launch it into being
is a call for a meeting and a few public-
spirited citizens who have the necessary experience, and the equally necessary leisure, to undertake the work of

Chicago, April 12.���Flushed with their
victory in the west officials of the various trainmen's organizations will continue the fight ��or higher wages in the
east to benefit 150,000 men employed
between Chicago and the Atlantic seaboard. A general increase of 10 per

the latter part of the present year, but
when they are filed every class of labor
will be represented with the possible
exception of the switchmen, who succeeded in getting an increase in pay
from the roads last fall. Leaders of the
railway men's unions believe their

Chief iMurrisey, of the trainmen's organization, said general satisfaction
was felt by his men over the concessions obtained from the roads. "I have
been doing a little estimating," he said,
"and I believe the average advance in

The Daily Canadian
Advantage* to Rancher* and Public of
Mixed   Farming���Potato
Growing  In  Maine.
The profils of fruit growing have bo
far c-ngrussc-d the attention of most of
the ranchers of Kootenay. Mut as more
hind is olearad, and the local demand
grown larger there ls no douht that general farming will hetome popular. Several ol the districts of Kootenay, especially Flre Valley, fend d'Oreille and
Hawser lake, are particularly sulied for
railing the vegetable crops. At present
nearly all the vegetblen consumed ln
Koolenay are Imported.
In Maine, where ihey grow TV. hush-
els to the acre, some knowledge of Ihe
methods employed will he welcome to
the farmers of Kontenay.
Aroostook county, Maine, Is Ihe seat
of ii very flourishing potato Industry,
says a wrlier In the Drovers' Journal.
Last year the production was ahout
20,000,000 bushels. Growers there secure on the average 100 barrels, or 275
bushels, per acre. The average cost
of production���for seed, labor and fertilizer���ls about MS per acre, and the
average gross returns $100 per acre.
Under the system adopted hy the
Aroostook couuty fanners the fertility of the land has been maintained or
even increased, land values have steadily risen, until now good potato lands
are rated at J75 to $100 per acre; witch
or quack grass and potatoes bugs have
been practically exterminated and the
farmers are prosperous and growing
The potato crop Is fertilized with
from 1000 to 1600 lbs. per acre of a
high grade of oomraerdal fertilizer, analyzing from 8 lo 4 per cent nitrogen,
6 to 7 per cent phoaphorlc acid and 9
to 10 per cent potash. By the use of
the 500 lbs. in addition to the original
K'OO lbs. some growers get au increase
ln crop yield sufficient to pay for the
whole 1500 lbs of fertilizer used. The
fertilizer costs from $32 to $35 per ton
ln carload lots. The comparatively
large amount of potash UBed is not only
bencficlal to the potato crop, but greatly stlmulatsss the growth and increases
the yield of the clover following. Maine
farmers object to the use of the barnyard manure, ashes or lime on [jolatoes,
fearing it may Induce scab. On this account they keep but little other than
work stock and sell off. most of the
clover hay and oats.
Spraying the potatoes with Bordeaux
mixture to control blight is practised
by at least 90 per cent of the Aroostook |K��tato growers. This is one of
iho practices in the industry that has
insured to Maine growers uniform success. Formerly one or two applications
of the Paris green were made, with the
Bordeaux to keep down the beetles.
The beetles, however, have been so reduced that now many growers omit the
paris green entirely, finding the Bordeaux mixture alone sufficient to control both blight and beetles. Spraying
begins about the first of July and continues until tlte middle of August. The
number of sprayings given depends on
Ihe weather���the aim is to keep Bordeaux on the vines constantly.
For the most part Maine growers
plant their potatoes with a planter in
rows three feet apart and 12 to 15 inches distant In the rows; a week after
planting cultivation begins with the
horse hoe going between the rows and
slightly hilling them. This Is followed
by the two-hor3e cultivator about the
time the potatoes break the ground.
Cultivating is continued about once a
week thereafter, alternating the horse
hoe with the cultivator and giving in all
five to seven cultivations. The rows
are hilled slightly and what quack or
witch grass there is develops on the
ridge, but is entirely removed when the
tubers are plowed out In the fall with
potato digger. Thus handled the grass
has been practically extemlnated.
