tJerltn. Jan. 2.��� More than a scorn of
clues have heed followed up by the
Berlin police in connection with the
mysterious murder of llt-rr .Max Leh-
inann, hut none of them has proved successful. The crime is one of the most
mysterious ihat has taken place here fn
Herr Lehmann, the victim, was a
bachelor uf considerable means, who in
addition to other speculations lent
money at low rates of interest to small
tradesman. He lived alone in a Hat,
did his own cooking, and was very reserved in his ways. lit* had lived in
London sevaral years, spoke fluent Kngi
lish and was well known to the Ameri
can and Kuglish colony in Merlin.
I.��� hmann ;������, landlord having seen
nothing of his lodger for more than a
week reported iho matter to thi' police,
fearing ihat something was wrong. The
door was broken open and Leh ma tin's
body was discovered tn a pool of blood.
Nearby was an overturned chair. The
dead man's skull and jaw were batter
ed, and he had a bnllet wound in his
cheek, besides deep gashes in his face
and neck. Near the body was a newspaper. The authorities concluded that
lhe murder was com mil ted while Leh-
niann was reading. It Is suspected
thnt the motive was robhery, hut owing to the fact that the victim had never taken anyone into his confidence in
regard to his business or financial affaire ii has been found im|K>ssible to
definitely delermine the cause of the
tragedy. The dead man's papers and

Decisive Blow Aimed at
All Officials of  Socialist Organization Will Be Brought to Trial-
Many Famous Names.
St. Petersburg, Jan. 2.���Indictments
were returned In this city today against
all the members of the executive com-
mitte of the jwpular socialist party and
their trial before the court of appeals
will begin shortly. The accused men
belong to the intellectual section of the
social revolutionists. They are mostly
veterans of the revolutionary' struggle,
who withdrew from the social revolutionary party in order to participate
In the election of the third Duma.
Among them are M. Annensky, who in
11*0*0 was exiled ou account of political
activity; Ivau Miakolin, the well known
Russian author who shared Maxim
Gorky's imprisonment In a fortress in
1005; M. Lutugina, organizer and first
president of the League of Leagues,
which oc-operated with the labor organizations during the era of strikes which
preceded the Issuance of the October
manifesto, and several prominent attorneys. The men are accused of being
members of a secret organization which
aimed to ovei throw the government. The
penalty on this charge may be penal
servitude for eight years.
The case hus the same general features as the trial of the social democratic members of the Duma and thut of
the former deputies who signed the VI-
borg manifesto. The social revolutionary organization is the only radical political party which has not already been
brought to the bar. It is understood
that the authorities intend to use the
ease of Nicholas Tschnlkovsky as a basis
of procedure against the men indicted
today. The Duma will be asked to suspend its sittings pending the trial.

Colma Arena, San Francisco, Jan. 1.���
Owen Moran, champion featherweight
of England, fought twenty-five rounds
fo a draw with Abe Attell, chnmplon
of America, tonight. Moran was strong
and aggressive, quick as a flash, and
kept after Attell all the time. Atteli
hail plenty of opportunity to show hit-
cleverness In keeping away from the
rushes of Moran, but the former's pun
ches seemed to lnck farce, nnd he found
It difficult \o land a blow on a vita:
spot. Morun's eye was blackened um',
his nose bled, but punishing blows t<
the stomach and swings to the jaw-
were lacking. Morun'n plan was to leaii
with either right or left and close In
In the clinches he fought vigorously
but did not do Attell much harm. Tht
final round was most exciting. Morae
seemed to take on new vigor, and with
head down went ut Attell swingiiu
rights aud lefts. When the gong ram
for the stop, both men kept on flghl
Ing fiercely. Referee Jefferies had U.
separate them. Jefferies' decision wat
received  with   approval.
There came near being no fight owinp
to the fact thut Moran was two ounce:
overweight. Attell hnd to be paid $25f
for this overweight before he woul.'
consent to go into the ring. Moran'f
manager stated that the Englishman
had found It extremely difficult to get
down to weight, and at 11 o'clock this
morning he   was  compelled  to  do  two
miles of vigorous road work. While the
interest in the fight was not very keen
and it did not come up to the standard
of a championship fight, 7,000 to 8,000
people attended. Referee Jeffries said
that he found It impossible to decide
In favor of either man. Attell had the
best of it In points but not enough to
win a decision.

Remarkable  Extension of    Dry  Belt  In
the  United States���Threaten
Strict Enforcement.
Atlanta, Ga., Jan. 2.���Georgia ls now
In the "dry" column side with Maine,
North Dakota and Oklahoma, making
four states in all in which the -manufacture or sale of Intoxicating liquor ls
prohibited. The Hardman-Covington-
Neel prohibition law passed by tbe
Georgia Legislature last July became
operative yesterday. The passing
from wet to dry was marked by scenes
of revelry in some of the larger cities
and an equal display of jubilation on
the part of those who have worked to
drive the saloons from the state.
The new law prohibits the manufacture, sale, barter, giving away to induce trade, or keeping or furnishing at
public places, or keeping on hand at places of business of any alcoholic, spirituous, or intoxicating liquors, or Intoxicating bitters, or other drinks
which, if drunk in exceBS. will produce
Intoxication. The measure allows the
sale of alchohol for medical purposes
and the sule of wood or denatured alcohol for art, scientific or mechanical
sale of alcohol for medical purposes
iologists who are actually engaged ln
that class of work for scientific purposes only. The law also provides stringent rules covering such sale by dnig-
glsls. Violations are to be punished as
In Atlanta the enforcement of the
new law meant the closing up of 125
saloons and a large number of wholesale liquor houses. It reduces the city
revenues $200,000 and the revenues of
the state $750,000. lt Is estimated that
between 1500 and 2000 men employed ln
liquor establishments have been thrown
out of employment. The anti-prohibition element declares the enforcement
of the law will be a mockery, with
"blind tigers" everywhere and stills galore.
On the other hand the prohibition advocates believe that the new condition
of affairs will be worth the cost, no
mutter how much that be. They believe it will decrease crime and that it
means the betterment of the state and
its people. They declare the prohibition law will be strictly enforced. Already steps are being made ln the larger cities for the formation of law and
order societies to aid in running down
violators of the law.
P.lrmlngham. Ala. Jan. 2.���Although

total of 160 saloons In Hlrmlngham.

Terminal  Branch  Multiple Switchboard
Being Installed.
D. Buchan, of��Vancouver. superintendent of equipment of the B. C. Telephone
company, and a corps of assistants, are
engaged in installing a terminal branch
multiple system In the local central telephone office.
The new switeh board is arranged for
six operators though It can. and for
some time probably will, be operated by
three. The present capacity is 600 telephones. Each operator will answer 200,
but can connect with any of the 600. as
each connection is registered six times
along the switchboard. The plant is so
constructed as to admit of an ultimate
capacity of 1.500 lines.
The result expected is a great economy of time aa any connection asked for
may be given by any one ot the operators without leaving her place.
The work of installing the new switch
board will take about three weeks, but
will not cause the slightest interruption
to tbe service. The old switchboard has
been moved from ItB present position in
the operating room. When the work is
Completed the operators will simply
have tb remove their chairs from the
old board to tbe new.

is the holiday season recedes Into the
past interest and attention are centre*
usuln on the ordinary concerns of life.
Although taint echoes of lhe recent
panic, are siin heard there Is no doubl
that a general return of confidence I*
occurring ami iin- pollcj "I restricting
industry will speedllj be abandoned an.l
u n.w era of normal growth, if not of
rapid expansion, will begin. The scarcity from which tli'- United States, an,I
Canada to a rar less extent, have suffer
ed, is not scarcity ol actual commodl
ties, either of foodstuffs or of tnaohln, rj
for further production, bu! onlj ��' the
medium of exchange, it maj product
temporary lncunv..nlenoe and loab of
oonfldenoe in il"- financial Institutions
of the country, bul it cannot cutis,- e
permanent reduction of activity ami
production. The real wealth of boll.
countries is in the *���"''��� the mines, the
forests ami H.e streams and tlie heads
and hands of the workers.
With anxiety on that score allayed
the next Interest of every thoughtful
and patriotic citizen Is the government
and administration of the country Can
ada came int.. tlu- hands <>f tin- one progressive race, the Hritish, years after
the American colonies. She attained
self-government sixty years attar th,
republic was organised. Naturally th,
various phases natural io Hi,* develop
ment of new countries, under llmllal
conditions Hnd both dominated by thi
same ruce, have come earlier to tb.
States than to Canada. Tlie Dominion
has learned much from the example of
the Republic und can learn much more.
It Is the testimony of all American
historians and publicists that in th.
years of rapid growth that followed thi
civil war the administration, federal
state and municipal, was often left U
unworthy hands.    America has paid a
heavy penalty for that period nf nation
;..  i. thargy.
In the fulnes. of time such an era has
dawned in Canada Tin- people have
realized, almost suddenly, that within
their own borders are enormous assets
awaiting Qeyejgpment and conversion,
an.l unique opporl unities for easily attained wealth.
Now is Ihe time to take warning from
the example of the elder sister. Canada
has developed a brood ot parisitic politicians as venomous antl dangerous as
any that disgraced New York, Pennsylvania, St. Louis aud San Francisco. II
the affairs of the country are surrender
ed to them while the real brains and
wills of Ihe people are devoted to the
pursuit of wealth, the blame will rest
on this generation.
Concede, if we will, Hint the present
government came into power in isl''s
win, honest and patriotic Intentions, no
one can seriously assert thut the administration Of tin- lust few years has been
other than recklessly extravagant and
hopelessly corrupt. Even in proportion
to the population tin- national expenditure bus trebled In less than a doien
yours. Tin- "middleman's" profits, admitted   by   Missis.   Fielding   and   A> ll s
worth, account for u large proportion of
the Increase and are a standing disgrace
to the ministers und lhe party that permit them.
Happily there are signs that the people are not callous. Some of the least
Intelligent of the government organs af-
r.-cl lo rejoice over tho results of the
recent bye-elecllons. But with one minister's seat Ignominlously surrendered,
wilh u seal lost from u solid provincial

it requires more than optimism, It ro
quires menial blindness, to believe thut

Perhaps tlie most Significant result ol
all wus that of Centre York. The gov

Here is the comment of lhe Toronto

Unite the Liberals of the riding and poll
the full strength of the party. He is as
good a candidate as his friends said he
was, and certainly he should have bad
from 200 to 300 of a majority. But he
comes out with an advantage of only
nineteen. This result, combined with
the loss of Colchester In Nova Scotia,
with the collapse in London, the reduction of the Liberal majority in Norih
Wellington, and the increase of the Conservative majority in Hast Northumberland, must have very clU-ttlnct significance for Ministers at Ottawa. Whin
a Canadian government shows loss of
strength in bytM-lcCtipns it is not far
from its downfall. It hav to be added
that all sections of the Conservative
party fought together for Mr. Wallace,
and that their campaign was thoroughly spirited and aggressive."
No one wi h any knowledge of Canadian
political history can pretend to question
the justice of that comment.
The magnitude of the change can. of
course, only be learned from the result
of a general election. There are not
wanting many discerning students of
popular feeling who assert that the n<-xt
Conservative majority from Ontario will
more than offset Sir Wilfrid Laurier's
Quebec following. Colchester and Prince
Albert have spoken eloquently of the revival of patriotism tn the farther east
and farther west. These are hopeful
signs that Canada is already awaking to
her danger and that a system of unblushing corruption Is not to be established in this country.

Last   Large   Area   of   Timber   Available
in the World���Appeal for
Timber has been and will be, so long
as man requires hotteee to shelter him,
Implements Which he may use for agriculture or indust lies, one of the great
needs of the world. In countries where
the forests have long been used, such as
a (rest part of Kurope, and they are
no longer capable of supplying the
needs of the inhabitants, efforts have
been made to take stock of the world's
timber supply to ascertain from what
source the deficiency is to be supplied.
As a European writer has said, "It is
profoundly disquieting to ascertain that
215 millions of inhabitants of Europe
constituting the nations where commerce and industry huve attained the
greatest jiower do not find enough of
wood for manufacturing purpose*, iu the
forests of the territories which they occupy."
.No country in Abla, except Russia, is
able to furnish more than Its own requirements. Neither from Africa nor
South America can an adequate supply
be obtained. Australia can furnish little.
The countries which have a -^reat excess
of production are only seven In number; five in Europe: Austria-Hungary,
Norway, Sweden. Finland and Russia;
and two in North America: the United
States and Canada. The increase of
population and the development of In
dustry in Austria-Hungary, in Russlu
and in the United States will soon reduce them to the level of non-exporting
countries-. Sweden, Finland and Canada
are tbe only countries that have a cer
tain future as timber producers.
In lie* Dominion of Canada the forest
ar'*a has been estimated jib high as 800
million acres, bul large extents bave
been burnt over and carelessly destroyed so that it ls doubtful If half that
aiea is really covered by forest. The
Canadiun forests are, however, producing a great deal more timber by yearly
growth than is yet cut from them. It
this could be kept up perpetually there
would always be a sufficient supply;
but fires are destroying considerable
areas almost every year, and, as the
forests of Eurojie and tho United States
become depleted, tbo quantities required
for trade will increase every year. To
meet this demand will require that the
forests *be thoroughly protected from
fire, and that every effort be made to
assist a new growth to follow that which
is being cut away.���Appeal of Canadian
Forestry Association.
New York No Longer Permits Marriage
Without Formal  Licence.
New York Jan 2.*���A new state law-
has become effective in New York
whieli will require a prospective bridegroom to be equipped with a formal license to wed before he leads his blush
ing bride to the altar. Romantic coup-
lee who after a moonlight auto ride or
a dinner party on Hroadway suddenly
decide to wake up a parson and gel
married can no longer be accomodated.
It i.s lhe first time in memory ol any
New Yorker thai licenses have been te
quired preliminary to a marriage, lt
will be necessary for both the groom
and bridegroom to appear when a II
cense is issued, and each will be required to answer a great number of questions. If the candidate for matrimony
has ever been married before he must
give the full history of that ceremony.
and if divorced he must tell when and
why. If either of the couple answers
ths questions untruthfully they are subject to prosecution for perjury. No
youth under twenty-one or girl under
, 1 lid en will he given a license without
thu written consent of both parents or
miuidian, and the parents must be pics
cul In person u�� slgu the document.
The law provides that a fee of $1
shall be paid for each license, and at
last years matrimonial rate in this
clly, the local treasury will lake In |6��>
000 during the nexi twelve months.
