Ottawa. Jan. 27.���A number o" ..
way employees met in convention .
today lo discuss mailers of Interest to
themselves. One of the chief Bubjects
discussed was the desirability of si a ur
ing amendments to the Lemieux Act
m so far as tt affected the employees.
Tlie provision of the act which prevents
the railway men from going on strike
before an effort has been made to settle
the difficulties before a board of conciliation is objected to.
Thu tendency In connection with railway accidents to place all the blame on
the employees, even ihaaugh higher officials may be responsible, was also discussed, and an effort will be made I"
bring about a change in tht* railway act
taa divide the responsibility mnre evenly
between the employees anal the higher
aadlclals. Ministers Lemieux and Graham will he seen and urgeal tti amena!

British   Liberal   Leaders   Helplessly  and
Humbly  Obey  Orders  of  the
London, Jan. 27.���Tlu* Labor Party
Congress Ik sued fresh Instruction* to a
submissive j-overnnient, which dares
not disobey them. Chancellor of the
Kxclu quer Asquith announced vaguely
'he other day that he would Introduce
an old-age pension scheme at tin* coming session of parliament. Adding that
it would require new taxation and hint-
Ing that the necessary tnnds must be
raised to meet it by local authorities and partly by national taxation.
The labor party sees signs of grading
thi- goTonuneaVfl full pledge in n mat-
tor that calls for universal pensions.
So it has passed resolutions 'demanding
that the j-overnment scheme shall be
non discriminatory mud non-contributory
ami shall In- nppUcnhle to all who had
reached the age of 06. The congress
further declared that the revenues for
pensions should be obtained hy direct
taxation u-ion incomes, a large part of
which is -social in its origin and ouirht
never to have been appropriated for
private  use.
This, of course, ls a plain Socialistic
dec la ration. Nevert bless, both Camp
bell Hannernian and Asqulth stand pied-
gad to universal pensions, which they
now admit would be impossible without
a new scheme of taxation, which by
reason ol the vast amount involved.
must be conllseatory in its nature.
There is nothing surprising in than
circumstances, that the government lost
i   Mat   in   pavonabire   raostftly  which
had   been iSvorwhelintugly   Liberal   for
many  years   past.

Expert Evidence on
Thaw's Insanity
London Doctor and Nurse Tell of His
Condition During Visits as
Far Back as 1901.
' New York, Jan. 27.���The morning
session of the Thaw trial began at 10.10
o'clock with Dr. Charles Francis Hinge-
man, the Thaw family physician, of
Pittsburg, on the witness stand. Dr.
Blngeman told of the early symptoms
of nervousness In Harry Thaw, saying
he was first called to attend the boy
When be was three years old. At that
time his nervousness otten bordered on
convulsions, that attacks usually followed various diseases, that he slept badly
as a child, requiring a relay of nurses
most of the time. Dr. llingeman said
that in the fall of 1903 he was called to
attend Harry Thaw in Pittsburg and
treated him for nervousness and melancholy after Thaw's first trip abroad
with Evelyn Nesbitt. The witness saw
Thaw sevenJ times in the .Tombs after
his arrival and the defendant always
referred to the Madison Square Garden
tragedy as an act of Providence. Thaw's
appearance in the prison impressed the
witness as irrational. It was of Dr.
Bingemau that District Attorney Jerome
said at the last trial when Thaw's
mental condition was under investigation: "I would rather have tlie testimony of an old family practtitioner like
this man than all the experts you could
put upon the stand."
���Following Dr. Hingemau came the
loreign witnesses. Dr. Sidney K. Wells,
of London, who was called to attend
Thaw iu London in the early part of
"Mr. Thaw was in a very nervous condition," said Dr. Wells. "His pulse was
extremely rapid and he complained of
pains in the head. My opinion of his
condition   was    'mental   disturbances.'
Another  Serious  Conflagration  in   Portland,   Maine.
Portland, Me., Jan. 27.���A fire which
several times threatened seriously to
wipe out the business district of this
city and which caused a damage estimated at over -$900,000 before it was
finally controlled was kept confined to
the block in which It started this morning alter almost ten hours lighting by
Portland's almost exhausted firemen,
aided by men and apparatus from several outside cities and favored by a
shift   of  the   wind.
The fire started by an unknown cause
in the wholesale dry goods house of
Milliken, Cousins & Co., which is a
branch of tiie large New York wholesale house of Deering _ Co., and it
was In half the buildings that the greater parUjjf the loss was sustained. When
the fire was thought to be under con-
tiol, the other half of the building occupied by C. P. Fox was invaded by
the flames which had made their way
through the roof and a wall simultaneously, and a $20,000 stock of boots
and shoes were ruined. The fire burned within a block of the scene of Sut-
urday'H blaze.
The flre assumed such serious propcr-
ttons after It broke away aud caught on
to the opsponta side of ths block in
which it started, thut Mayor Lcighton
called for help and ten cities in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine
The fire's origin has been Investigated,
and there were no known causes. It is
regarded aa suspicious.

Old Bible Found.
St. Paul, Jan.    27.��� A    special    from
Marshield. Wis., Bays that Rev. Joseph
Hrown, a Sunday school missionary hns
found  among    the    Indians  in   Oconto
j county, Wis., a bible given to the Oneida
tribe in 1754 by the secretary of the
Prince of Wales. The present was made

Municipal   Council   Abolishes   Religious.
Instruction  in Schools.
Rome, Jan. 27.���Despite the formal
declaration of the new Mayor of Rome,
Ernest Nathan, who ls a Jew and a
Freemason, that he did not intend to
make war on religion, the municipal
council has passed a resolution for the
abolition of religious instruction In the
schools of Rome by a large majority.
Italians, while not practical Catholics,
insist that their children shall have religious   Instruction.
The result of the action of the council Is that a great many children have
been transferred from the formerly
public schools to private institutions
supported by the Vatican. The Irish
Christian Drothers recently opened a
large school built on land belonging to
the Vatican, and this is crowded with
children who have been taken from the
public schools.
The action of the municipality,
coupled with the suppression of the
jubilee pilgrimage to Rome. will, it is
believed, result in considerable recon-
cession of Romans to clericalism.
Mine Owners at Goldfield Abandon Black
v List System But Firm for
Open Shop.
Goldfleld. Jan. 27. ���The Goldfleld
mine operators' association last night
abolished the card system which requires all employees to sign an agreement renouncing the Western Federation of Miners and declared an open
shop policy. The resolution adopted
stated that hereafter applicants for employment "should only be required to
satisfy the secretary of the association
and the employer of their competency
aud reliability."
This action was determined upon, It
is said, because the agreement which
the men were required to sign was in
conflict   with  tiie   statutes   of   Nevada.
"We shall operate on the open plan,"
said Secretary Erb of the Mine Owners'
Association, "and employ men regardless of their membership in any union."
It is believed that there are fully 1,-
0l>o federation men in the camp who
will return to work under the new ruling.

This morning was chamber day at the

Deceived  French   Husband Consorts of
Choice With Vagabonds.
Paris, Jan.   27.���Following  the clues
of a robbery at Sartouvllle, the Maisone- ,
LaHtte police on Cl..lstmas  Tve came
upon a strange human story.
An innkeeper, whom they questioned1
about the robbery, mentioned that a
short time before a man, who looked
like a tramp, had bought three bottles
of champagne and paid for them with a
100-franc note. The police followed his
tracks to a broken-down roadside hut. .
There they fount!" four vagrants sitting
round a gypsy fire.
The man with the bank notes noon
made himself known. With a smile
and a distinction af manner that contrasted With the shabby clothes, he produced his pocketbook. saying to the police: "Here are my papers." They
were an Instructive package. One was
u bank draft for $360, and from others
lt appeared that the tramp had been
major of a company ln the Lorlet department. He enjoyed the stupefaction
with which the police scanned the documents, and then, with the nerve begotten of champagne, he told part of his
life story. '
When at the head of a good business,
he found one day Hint he had been deceived by tils wife. | Mad with ilespalr,
he realized on his possessions, and disappeared, taking to the puSjlic road. For
twenty years he had lived uway from
tlu* world and his family, doternilnea to
cut himself ndrlft from Boclety. He
drew his Income Bier. Illy, and spent It
among the chnnce vugubimds whom he
met. ,
The police left tha- strange wanderer
to his night fir,, anil his companions.

It is unlikely that the present Dominion government would consider the Imposition of a duty on lead or lead products, but they have already substantially recognised the claims of the Industry io protection by the grant of a
bounty for live years. The sum of 12,-

advance in the price of lead during the
bounty period, only $616,000 has been

New York, Jan. 27.���The marriage
ceremony uniting Miss Gladys Vanderbilt and Count Laszlo Szechenyi of
Hungary was performed a few minutes
past noon today at the home of the
brides mother, Mrs, Cornelius Vanderbilt, corner of Fifth avtnue and
Fifty -eighth street, As upon previous
occasions when American heiresses
have bestowed themselves Upon tilled
foreigners, the ceremony was witnessed
by that select and exclusive body
known  as ' society."
The Vanderbilt mansion was guarded
by a large number of police officers,
specially detailed to hold in check the
immense crowd of curious sped a tors
who thronged the sidewalks and occupied the. doorways and other p-otnls of
vantage opposite the Fifty-eighth street
entrance to the Vanderbilt home. There
was nothing to reward the patience of
the crowd until half or three-quarters
of an hour before the time fixed for
the ceremony. One of the first carriages to arrive contained Monsignor
M. J. Lavelle, who was accompanied by
two priests from St. Patrick's Cathedral and a lay brother carrying a suit
Case which contained the episcopal
vestments. Then iu rapid succession
rode up the handsome equipages with
the invited guests. The crowd at this
time began to swell and the police, in
charge of precinct commanders, kept
ih.* spectators moving, none being permitted to loiter in front of the house.
Every arrival at the house was eagerly scanned by the crowd, but little
could be seen of any of the costumes
by outsiders, owing to the awnings,
which were closed the entire length of
the curbs, and which prevented ihe
gttSSta being seen on alighting from
their carriages. The crowd, however,
overcome by its desire to catch at least
a glimpse of some of the imrticipants
surrounded the carriages which were
in line, many women scrambling aud
jostling against each other in their
eagerness to see the occupants.
At a quarter to twelve, the guests,
probably two hundred in all, assembled
in the handsome drawing room. At oue
end of the room stood the altar in
white and gold, the scores of tall lighted candles in golden stands reilecting
with gorgeous effect upon the golden
The spacious drawing-room was converted Into a veritable conservatory of
rare plant- and blossoms. On and about
the altar were tall golden stands filled
with clusters of long-stemmed Easter
lilies and Ulies of the valley in bewildering confusion. Pink and white predominated  in  the  decorations.
Promptly on tbe stroke of twelve
Mgr, Lavelle and his assistants entered the room and took up ihelr positions on the right and left of the altar.
at the south end of ihe drawing-room.
A moment later the two choirs from
St. Patrick's Cathedral began to sing
the wedding chorus from Gaul's cantata "Huth," and the bridal party were
heard descending the stairs. The singers were accompanied on the piano by
.Mr. James C. I'ngerer. organist and musical director of the Cathedral.
The bride entered the wedding parlor
on the arm of her brother, Alfred
Gynne Vanderbilt. Next came the
bride's mother escorted by Count
