Winnipeg, Feb. 27.-Just what effect
the Dominion Lord'a Day acl, which
passed the commons aud Benate at the
last seBslon of the federal house, will
have on tbe railruadB of the WeBt is
uow a matter of much conjecture
among local railway men. This act
goes Into effect on March Isl, and the
higher oIlicialB or the varloUB railroads
are uow giving a good deal ot time to
the cuneidcrallon of the intricacieB ol
thla most Imiwrtant piece or legislation.
lhe acl devotes considerable attention to railroads, particularly as regards
working hours ot trainmen and other
employees, and to adhere to lt will
dOUbtl-SH need considerable preparation as well as an Increase in the number of erupiojeos. As regards the running of freight traliiB certain rectric-
tlons are also laid down which may at
first caiiBe a good deal of Inconvenience, especially when a heavy traffic
movement prevails. With a vksw to de.
Hiding what action ls to be taken by
the Canadian Pacific railway in regard
to the act coming Into force, Mr. William Whyte. second vice presldet, and
Mr. G. J. Bury, general superintendent,
are now holding a conference.
Hawalln Sensation.
Honolulu, Feb. IH.���via. Sun Francisco, Feb. 27.���Nothing that has happened
for a long time in Hawaii has created
the same widespread lists n ss as Governor Carter's announcement in an Interview that he had beeu willing that
his daughter should marry a Japanese.
The newspapers are bombarded with
communications condemning it.
Tacoma Enforces Sunday Law Far Mora
Strict than Canada Contemplates
���Possible    Motives.
New Westminister, Feb. 27���There is
a strict Sunday observance law across
Lhe line, but it appears to have been
practically a dead letter.
Now It Ib to be enforced up to the
hilt lu Tacoma: Seatttle has bad a
taste ol It for Borne weeks.
A despatch from Tacoma says that
tho mayor Is going to give that city beginning yesterday, the whole length of
the law, except only tbat lighting plants
will be allowed to run. Newspapers
may uot issue; street cars may not run;
teUphones may not ring; none may
work for hire, Bave ministers of the
gospel. Even paid organists uf the
churches come under the ban.
lt appears, however, that the enforcement or the law ls by the way ol "making them sick of It"���at least that is
the view taken by the despatch which
"The trouble began a few weeks ago.
The council passed au ordinance cutting
uut cloued boxes in saloons and restaur-
auiB. Purtltions were Ui bu limited lo

$000 to  $MIH.
"Mn*>or Wright vetoed both. The
council refused to be squelched, lt
passed them again. They were vetoed
"Then two more councllmen were
elected. The ordinances were passed
over the mayor's veto.
"Then Mayor Wrighl determined to
give Tacotuu returni In plenty, Last
Sunday he guvo the city the first taste

stands were closed tight. A man had
to go to Seattle lo get a 5-cent cigar.

Moore had had a stnllar "hunch" and
Heatlle was almost aa dry as Tacoma.
Later In tbe week some hundreds of dollar's worth of slot machines were
dumped ln the bay.
"Then the prosecuting attorney step-
lied In. He announced thnt saloons In
every town In lbe county must close on

Ixmdon. Feb. 27.-A movement has

Smothered by Ammonia.
New York, Feb. 27.���Two firemen
were killed and 11 others rendered un-
Oonaoloni by ammonia fumes at a flro
thla morning In the basement or a market In Eighth avenue. Oue or the men
who wub made unconscious mny die,
while the condition or two others is
serious. But for tho heroic work of
tho rescuers the death list would have
been larger. Dannn and llaker, who are
dead, had carried u pipe through the
basement und Into an opening leading
to a sub-cellar where they called for
water pressure. However, when othpr
(Irsinen reached the hole to assist
them in playing the hose upon the
hose upon tine blaze, Dnmm and Parker
were not to be seen. Ammonia fumes
poured through the hole and filled the
basement. The flames had melted the
coupling of one or the ammonia pipes
connecting with the cold storage plant
ol the market. The financial loss was
ubout $2,000.

Alienists Give Evidence
on Stand Today
Attorney Jeront fcdcaTors to Lay
Trap as to Credibility oi
New York, Fe%. 27.���Five minutes before court opened for today's session of
the trial of Harry K. Thaw for the
murder of Stanford White, Evelyn Nesbitt Thaw entered the court room, ac
companied by D. M. Delmas, of counsel for tbe delence and took a seat at
the end of the table occupied by the de-
t'cudaui s -counsel, next to tbe chair occupied by her husband. While waiting
for the trial to go on Bhe chatted with
Dr. Hammond, ti*- defence's alienist,
and wltb Mra. KJ, Caines, who sat
near her. , _
Evelyn Neabit't *lbaw was recalled by
consent thla moraaig to answer a few
more questions by District Attorney
New York, Feb. |7.���When the Thaw
trial waa opened today Dlatrlct Attorney Jerome began the cross-examination of Dr. Hritton D. Evans, or the
Insane hospital of Morris Plains. N. J.
Dr. Evans is the principal insanity expert for the defence, and not only
proved an excellent witness on his direct examination, but while on the
stand during yesterday used the English language with a number of such
expressions aa "brain stoma," "grave
mental fulminatlon" and "phyachlc explosions."
Dr. Evans will be followed on the
stand hy Dr. Charles a Wagner, superintendent of the lnaane Hospital at
Binghamton. N. Y., who haa also testified to examining Thaw Beveral times
In the Tombs. He will come in for his
share of the cross-examination. The
two experts will be followed by Drs.
Deemar and Bingaman, who, lt Ib asserted, will testify as to the strains of
insanity in Mrs. Thaw's family.
Mrs. William Thaw will go on the
Btand to tell of the young days ot her
son, and lt is expected that May Mackenzie, the chorus girl, friend ot Evelyn Neabltt Thaw will testify as to conversations she is said to have had with
Stanford White and repeated to Thaw,
in wMch It is claimed White laughed
at lie love of Thaw for hi* wife and
said lt wouid not be long until she returned to him.
Evelyn Nesbitt Thaw left the stand
yesterday with her story practically unbroken. To be sure, Mr. Jerome brought
out a number of facts which do not rebound to her credit and which may even
be said to reflect on her credibility,
but aside from making her admit that
the facta hardly Justified the Inference
that she was drugged at the time she
says White ruined her, her story remains ln all its essential detallB Just as
she originally told it. Whether her
credibility has been sufficiently attacked to create doubt in the minds of
the jury as to her telling the Btory to
Thaw that ls said to have unhinged his
mind Is a matter that only the verdict can
decide. The verdict also can ouly decide whether the relations which existed between Thaw and Evelyn Nesbitt
arter she had told him her story were
such as to raise a question regarding
the sincerity of his feelings for her and
create e doubt as to the claim that his
act was lhe result of constant brooding
ou her wrongs.
"Evidence that Stanford White was
not In the Mth street studio on thc
night Evelyn Nesbitt Thaw declares he
drugged and mistreated her Ib In the
possession of District Attorney Jerome,"
says the Evening World today. This
evidence, it Ib asserted, Ib based upon
Information given by White's friends,
who declare that he spent nearly the
whole of the night In question enter-
mining a party or friends In thc Madi
son Square tower.
"ThiB." saya the World," will undoubtedly be the surprise the prosecution had ln store for the defence. But
although It might offset testimony given
bv Evelyn Neabltt Thaw, lt cannot be
given to tho jury, aB lt doeB not disprove that Evelyn Nesbitt told her hns
band thp story she says she did."
Immediately after court convened
Lawyer Daniel O'Klclly led Mrs. Thaw
and Mrs. Calue from the room. MrB.
Thaw did not get a chance to speak to
her husband. Mr. Jerome stated that
he had overlooked one point ln his
cross-examination of. Mrs. Thaw, and
asked that she be returned for a ques
tion, stating that It waB not merely a
matter effecting the credibility of Iho
witness, but a matter which he might
wish to attempt to controvert on re'
hutal and he wished to lav a foundation for auch action hy calling her attention to the matter. Mra. Thaw was
therefore recalled.
By his first queation Mr. Jerome indi
cated that he intends to call Howard
Nesbitt to the witness statu) to contradict his slser. The district attorney
Is allowed to contradict traverslble or
material iacts, but cannot controvert
collateral facta.
"Did you see your brother at Marion,
Mass., on your return from Europe in
19037" aaked the district attorney.
"I did not," replied Mr3. Thaw.
"Where did you see him?"
"In New York."
"Did you not tell him In substance
that while you were abroad you had
been brutally abused by Thaw, who had
tried to Induce you to tell lies against
White to the effect that White had
drugged and seduced you, which statements you then and there told your
brother were false?"
"I did not"
"Didn't you tell your hrother that
Thaw, at a pistol's point, had compelled
you to make false Btatements against
"I did not"
"Did he not ask you If you feared violence and you said you did and he said
you should arm yourself for protection."
"I remember no Buch conversation.*'
"Did he not say you should have a
revolver?" '
"Did he buy you a revolver?"
"He did not."
"Didn't you give him money to buy
you a revolver?"
"I did not."
"That Is all." Mr. Jerome and Mrs.
Thaw left the room.
Dr. Charles E. Bingaman, of Pittsburg, the Thaw family physician was
then sworn. He told Mr. Delmas of see.
Ing Thaw on Nov. 16th, 1903, at which
time he was nervous and melancholy.
He was Bleeping and eating little and
seemed much changed from his former
condition. He said he knew Thaw from
childhood and the latter was formerly
ot a bright nature. On Augst 17th,
1904, he called on Thaw In the Tombs
and saw him again on Sept. llth.
New York, Feb. 27.���Mr. Delmas today said that the defence would con
elude lta case this week.
New York, Feh. 27���Mr. Delmas objected to Dr. Bingaman, who was called
to the witness stand when Mrs. Thaw
was excused, being examined as an ex-
pert and was sustained. Mr. Jerome
then said he would call Mr. Bingaman
as a witness for the state in rebuttal
next week.
Development on  Strathcona  and   Fremont Mineral Claims.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Grand Forks, Feb. 27. ���Mr. F. H.
Knight, manager of the Bertha Consolidated Gold Mining company, has just
returned from Greenwood, his mission
there being to Inspect the Sirathmore
and Fremont mines in the Interest of
Spokane and Chicago capitalists. In
an interview today Mr. Knight said:
"On my visit to the Strathmore mine
I found that Harry Shafer, the superintendent of the Strathmore min.e has
done a vast amount of development
work on the property since my last
visit. He is now raising ore the best
I bave yet Been taken out of the mine
and he will now commence to make regular shipments to the Trail Btnelter
as that plant is now ready to receive
the ore. Mr. Shafer reserves great
credit for the systematic manner In
which he has handled this mine up to
the present time. He ls a man of long
experience In mining and has well-
shuwn his ability. I am sure that when
the directors of the company visit tlie
property in the early spring ttmt they
will be more than pleased with the
management of this property.
Mr. Knight further stated that he met
Mr. R. F. Poe, superintendent ot the
Fremont mine, this gentleman having
heen In charge of this property since
the 1st of January last, and has been
doing development work for the Spokane ownerB. Mr. Poe started to drift
no the ore at the bottom of the 40-foot
shaft and drifted north ahout 60 feet
In quartz of good value and at the end
of the drift where he Is working at the
present time the pay ore Is fully 16
Inohes wide, Identical with the Providence ore. Mr. Poo has also got the
ore In place at the hottom of the shaft
and he Is anxious to have the machinery
Installed as early as possible, as he
wants to continue sinking on the lead
nt the bottom of the shaft which look'
sn promising. Mr. Knight further
stated that he felt aura that when the
Spokane owners visited the property
they will be well nleased with Mr. Poe's
management of the mine.
Cure for Meningitis.
Silt Lake, Utah, Fob. 27.���That ordinary air Is nn effective remedy for
cerebri) spinal meningitis ls tbe Rttls-
stance of a statement mnde before the
Salt Lolv;> County Medical society yesterday at a meeting called to dls-uss
the epidemic whicli has raged here
since the beginning of the year. Tho
treatment indicated )ias beeu successfully employed by Dr. Harry N. Mayo
lu a number of cases. It Ib haBed on
the knowledge that oxygen ls fatal to
the bacteria which causes meningitis.
The activity of batcerla ls confined to
the spinal column.
Dr. Mayo as soon aa possible after
diagnosis Inserts a hypodermic needle
Into the lumbar region of the spinal
cavity at the top ot the ilium and ex-
trnrtR ten cubic centlmetera of the cerebral fluid, he then injects three-fourths
of a grain or cocaine to relieve the pain.
The injection of three cable centlmetera
of air completes the treatment. Where
the conditions have all been favorable,
this treatment has been followed by
rapid improvement although a long
Pi riod of rest la necessary to complete
the cure.
First Vice  President  of C.  P.   R.  Delivers Hla Judgment.
Montreal, Feb. 27.���"I haven't much
money, but what little I have I would
not care to Invest ln a Hudaon's Bay
Thus spoke D. McNichell, MM
president of the C. P. R. In answer to
the question of what he thought of
the proposed line to Fort Churchill,
which the premier seemed to have (ore-
shadowed iu his speech in the houae
on Friday night
"How many months in the year Ib
the Hudson Bay open? Let me Bee;
from June or July to September. How
much freight would be got in these few
months? and what whgat could be secured ln September, and would you
have hundreds of Boats lying frozen ln
for the whole year? And what would
the farmer in the Northwest, who ia already grumbling at delay, say to the
" I have not gone into the question
tully and perhaps the experiment may
be made.   Let it be made."
"Do you mean, that being bo prosperous, we need not mind experiments however costly they may be?"
"Well," amillngly, "if you want to
test things, you muat come to the point
of dicision."
"The C. P. R., Mr. McNlcoll, would
not be jealous of such an undertaking?"
"Rubbish. We would be only too glad
lf such an experimert came to anything
and relieved the pressure. I would
have doubts as to the commercial success. At the same time I do not feel
free to discuss what will be likely, according to the remarks of Sir Wilfrid
Lauriar in the house, be a government

London, Feb. 27.���The new criminal
court erected on the site of the historical old Newgate prison, commonly
known as "Old Bailey," was opened today by King Edward, who waa accompanied by Queen Alexandra.
The function was a Btate affair. The

at Temple barracks where the Lord
Mayor presented the King with the
city sword.
In a pavilion In front of the new aea
sion house an address waa presented to
tbe King, who replied and declared the
building open. Their majesties subsequently inspected the interior of the

the address referred to the "barbarous
penal code" administered within the
walls ot the old building and aald he rejoiced at the fact lhat this waa being
replaced in the progress towarda the
noble purposes of reforming crmlnals
by showing mercy to most ot the offenders, which often proves the means of

New York, F��b. 27.���In the Hantaan
trial today Mr. Harriman testified thnt
the Union Pacific had purchased the 8t
Joe ud Orand Island for $2,022,000
since last year. The witness had owned
the property and sold It to the Union
Pacific Objection was made to questions aa to when he bought the stock
and what he paid far It, and the witneaa
declined to answer. The commission
ruled that he must and there waa the
usual formal refusal. The witneaa aald
that the St. Joe ft Orand Island was not
a parelell or competing line. Hr. Kellogg aaked Mr. Harriman' of whom
tbe New York Central stocks acquired
by the Union Pacific were bought. Mr.
Harriman said they wen bought in the
open market
"Were you or any of your aaaoclates
interested In the sal* at tbe Hae of the
Union Pacific purchase?" Mtt. Mill* objected and Mr. Harriman declined to answer.
Mr. Kellogg aaked tbe witness it It
was not a fact that of the 122,022,000
staated to have been spent on th* Chicago ft Alton 12,174,000 waa made of
put trust certificates and (1,000,000
alone from Kuhn, Loeb ft Co., so that
the expenditures on the Use, out ot the
securities sold, were only aeo-at ��U.-
���00.000? Mr. Harriman aald that possibly the figures were comet Ha
scarcely knew that $22,000,000 had been
apent on the line. The witneaa waa
then excused and Otto Kahn, nt Kahn,
Loeb ft Co., took the ataad.
Mr. Severance examined Mr. Kahn
and led him back to the reorganisation
of the Union Pacific. The firm of Kahn,
Loeb ft Co. were bankers to the reorganisation oommlttee and Mr. Severance naked abont the (took insurance,
lightening and general handling ot tha
old Union Pacific and that leaned by
the reorganisation. Mr. Kahn replied
from printed reports.
Mr. Kahn said hla firm had purchased
the Southern Pacific under control
which afterwards paaaed to the Union
Pacific, bnt he would not admit that
they bought lt with the understanding
that the U. P. would take It, the
only understanding being that tt was to
be offered to the Union Pacific. Mr.
Harriman, he thought, favored tbe purchase, bat his firm took a big risk ln
buying the Southern Pacific, aa the remainder of the board might not approve
lta pnrchase.

We revert again to the question of
the a*tempted alienation of the lands
on the Tsim;8iuan peninsula by the
Dominion government to the Grand
Trunk Pacific, not only to commend the
promptitude of the provincial government in taking steps to assert provincial rights but because there haa been
an attempt made by a local paper to belittle the significance of the action of
the Ottawa government it h. not necessary at thiB Ume "> dlseosa the legal
aspect! Of the question or to go exhaustively into the qui stion of provincial rights. The case briefly stated i-i
that the Grand Trunk Pacific Hallway
company was desirous of securing 18,*
000 acres ot land on the above named
peninsula which is contiguous to or adjoining the Kaleu Island which has been
purchased as a site for their terminus.
That the acquisition of these 'and�� was
desirable, even necessary for the purposes of the O. T. P, may be unheal-
latiugly admitted. Only a portion of
the ten thousand acres secured on Kaien
Island fs suitable for terminal or town-
site purposes. While for the pr.sent
and perhaps for srrae years the land
acquire would be ample, the G. T. P.
looks to the future. Besides, if lands
adjoining Kuien island could he secured
the quarter in'erest reserved by the
provincial government In the sale of
Kaien island coul J be considerably reduced in value. At least It would be
easy to obviate Its Increase by using
only su much of the terminal site us
would he actually necessary for terminal purposes and putting the townsite
somewhere near.
It was doubteless with these motives
that the G. T. P. through an intermediary approached the Indians with
the unpronouncabie name, and arranged
with the Indians for the purchase of
thirteen thousand acres at $7.50 per
They afterwards approached the Dominion government, whose wards the
Indians are, and asked for a ratification of the bargain. The Ottawa government clearly recognizing the provincial reversionary rights In the case approached the MoBrlde administration
and sought consent to the transfer.
The Daily Canadian holds that the Ottawa government by approaching the
province for the rellngulshment
of its claim recognized unqualifiedly the rights of the province to a reversionary interest
in the lands in question. The provincial government, however, did not see
fit to favor this deal for reasons that
must be obvious. TO give away lands
ad,owning tne Kaien island terminus
would be to largely frustrate the very
objects and discredit the considerations which induced them to sell Kaien
Island at so low a figure for terminal
purposes, If these additional lands
Were required for the purposes of the
G. T. P. then the province should have
something to say as to the terms uud
conditions under which they should be
Notwithstanding the refusal of the
provincial government to consent to the
transfer of the Tslmpshan lands to the
railway corporation the Dominion governmenl Openly defies precedent and
ratines the Qttast-rlghta of the railway,
subject of course lo any rights which
the province may assert. This leaves
the matter to be fought out or amicably settled between the province and
the railway corporation. It gives the
railway the advantage of a clear title
so far as both Indians and the Dominion are cmcerned. It shows plainly
how far the Ottawa government is prepared to go ln furthering the schemes
of its pet oompany, and more than tills
how iar it is willing to go In embarrassing the course of the local government
That the provincial government will
rel;:qush one item of Its rights In the
question is not supposed. Already
steps have been taken to settle once
and forever t. e question of these reversionary rights and all questions
technical,    legal,    constitutional    and
otherwise that may be involved. As
announced in The Daily Canadian yesterday, a minute of the council is forwarded te Ottawa claiming provincial
rghn In all Indian reserves. Since
Ottawa has within the last few years
so frequently exhibited designs upon
the rights of this province, and since
it is almost the only province left In
f< deration that Is not wholly subservient to Ottawa dictation it is well that
the tocsin of defiance be sounded and
all these Issues in question be settled.
The province hns a clear case. Unless
It Is prepared to despise the terms under which it entered Into confederation
and other definite arrangements subsequently made between the Dominion
and provincial government its c'alms
are irrefutable . We shall therefore
expect to ste the matter sifted to Its
finish and We have no doubt that the
rights of th*-1 province will be unalterably established.
A valued subscriber has handed a
communication to the Daily Canadian
in which he criticizes a recent editorial
in this paper on the question of Church
and State. We regret that the letter is
too long for insertion in our columns
as we desire always to please our subscribers by assisting to place their
views before the public.
The single sentence which our correspondent criticizes as statfd by him
is as follows "The ideals of the founder
of the Christian church were as far divorced from union of church and state
as can well be conceived." lie answers
this with the categorial statement that
"Nothing could be farther from the
truth." After defining the church as
'Saints���the holy people of God" and
state as "kings, parliaments, magistrates, &c," he then argues elaborately
from both the old and new testaments
to show that kings aid priests have similar functions. The pith of the letter
la probably found in the following sentence "Had the kings of the cities of
the plain united religion with their
kingly functions they would have been
saved, but they adopted the voluntary
principle, hence the consequence, lt is
not republicanism nor any other form
of government that gives freedom but
pure religion," after which a reference
Is made to the necessity of introducing
more religion into the civic life of Nelson by our city fathers.
With the methuphysical arguments of
our subscriber as to what constitutes
the "Church' 'or even as to what is the
duty of the state In matters of religion
The Daily Canadian has no disposition
to interfere. Since, in discussing the
separation of church and state in
France we penned the sentence which is
criticized, and used the term " church"
entirely In its hierarchical Bense we
cannot see that the criticism applies.
As it is a question in which the public
as a whole has little interest we must
decline to pursue It further, but if we
were disposed to establish the position
taken in our recent editorial we should
simply quote the words of the founder
of the Christian church who said ".My
kingdom is not of this world, &c.
Now that Evelyn Nesbitt Thaw has
been grilled to the apparent satisfaction of Attorney General Jerome it may
be pertinent to remark that the object
of his harrowing cross examination is
not easily descernible by the lay mind.
What possible good could come by
forcing the girl to make the humiliating disclosures of her past life does not
appear upon the surface. At first it
was thought that his efforts were directed to show that Thaw knew all about
her relations with White and was by
reason of this knowledge a consenting
party, his killing of White being because of this the more unjustifiable.
The sudden termination of the cross
examination without a hint of this
would seem to signify either thnt lhat
was not his object or that his efforts
bad signally failed. We hesitate lo believe of Jerome that he had not some
worthy object but so far It would appear
that we must await disclosures before
concluding what that worthy object
waa. The evidence is probably nearly
all ln and thy public will await with
bated breath the address of counsel as
In ihis part of the li lal will lie Its chief
Interest   Speculation as to the fate of
Thaw  Is us uncertain as  belting on a
horse race.
The Victoria Week takes a differ"
ent view of the authorty of the attorney general in the matter of the enforcement of the Lord's Day Act from
that generally held. The impression
has been fostered that the act cannot
come Into force in the province with-
out the consent of the attorney general. The Week, however, proclaims
that all the attorney general can do is
to prevent "reckless or vindicative setting in motion of the act by ovorxefl.ons
or unscrupulous informers," The ait
having the imprimatur of the Dominion
government is binding upon all the
provinces and the Week's opinion ts all
the attorney general can do is to see
that it is not mr.de a wi apon of prosecution.   We incline 10 the opinion thai the
Week is right iu its contention.

Kuropatkin Telia the Story of the Spirit
of the Fight.
Oenoral Kuropatkin lias published
tbiae bulky volumes of explanation aa
lo why the army or Russia was beaten
in Manchuria. He blames lhe Inefficiency of bis subordinates, their lack of skill
in handling tho troops, the lack of cooperation between the different divisions, the failure of the Siberian rail-
way tu keep up the supplies; but the
real reason for his failure seems to be
contained in one sentence ""the Insufficient warlike Bplrit of our own troops
in consequence of the obscurity surrounding the objectB and causes of lhe
Apart from thc fact lhat lhe Japanese
wer. magnificently organized and
splendidly handled by their generals
and Individually were more than a
match in dash and endurance for the
Kussian soldiers, the whole difficulty
was that the heart of the Kussian soldier was not in the war. So far aB Russia was concerned it was a war based
on bad laith towards another naUon,
an attempt to secure and hold by foul
means what could not be accomplished
in fair and honest manner.. Russia had
taken advantage of the supiness of the
other powers to establish herself iu
Manchuria and to ignore her treaty
obligations. To Japan it was of vital
Importance that Russia should not be
allowed to do this, though the other
powers, through a selfish lack of interest In the situation, tacitly acquiesed in
Russia's action.. The Japanese soldier
was fighting for the life of his country.
The Russian soldier waB fighting to rapport an act of treacherous aggression.

work. And there la the keynote to all
future warn between great nations. The
da>J oil small professional armies in
past. When one nation arrays itself
against another it Ib practically a case
of a levy en masse. When battle lines
are 100 miles long victory is going to
be to lhe masB whose hearts are in the
fight. They may be marshalled to the
front but if the hundreds of thousands
of men who are called upon to face
death do not believe that they have
right and justice on their side, that side
is going lo be beaten. This is what oc-
COrred in Manchuria.. General Kuropatkln's history charges that brigades,
divisions and even army corps retired
from the field of battle without good
reason, but simply because they were
not imbued with the spirit of patriotism
which leads men to risk their lives ln
a great cause. It may be that his subordinates were inefficient, that the supplies were irregular and that he could
not succeed in having Mb strategy executed, but the real reason of the Russian debacle was that the reason for the
war did not appeal to the private soldier and that he had no Inspiration to
encourage him to sacrifice himself on
behalf of his country.���Ottawa Citizen.

Rev. W. T. Stackhouse, of Winnipeg,
superintendent of Baptist missions for
Manitoba, Saskatchewan aud British
Columbia passed through the city yesterday on his way East from the coast.

field of work here. Mr. Stackhouse reports the condition of the denomination
to be better than ever before and plans
for larger work are being made.
Contractor John Hums wonders why
he has been singled out of a host for
censure. He admits the possibility of a
man hopelessly drunk falling off the
sidewalk in front of the site of the new-
Hank of Commerce building, but the
same danger exists for more than half
the length of the north side of Baker
street, notably east of the Queen's
hotel and west of China hall, both within the business district. The foundation work, he explains, must wait until
the frost, is out of the ground.
