Ottawa Letter Contains .erbalum Report of Lord Stratticona's Protest���A
Strange Story of Ballot Box Stuffing in Rabbitskin Bistrict.
Ottawa, August 5���This is an off time in politics at the Capital. The Ministers are all
away but two or three and these are confining themselves pretty closely to departmental details.
Still the machinery has been sufficiently active to make a few appointments and to consider
others. For example Mr. Savard, former Liberal member for Chicoutimi, has beeu comfortably
provided for with an $1,800 office in the Transcontinental Railway Commission.
At hist accounts the Mounted police officers, supposed to have been sent in hot haste to
bring back to Prince Albert H. P. Moberley, who was engaged to work with the census staff,
have not yet reported their man. It must not be forgotten that Mr. Moberley is an expeit
election manager. He was sent last year with two or three others to the country far north of
Prince Albert to hold a provincial poll. After going a day's journey into the wilderness they
held a poll all by themselves, inventing names of electors, filling the ballot box with ballots, and
the poll book with the names which they had created. It was a unanimous election party, and
they brought back a return of over two hundred votes for the Government candidate and none
at all for the Opposition. The favorite name forged by the returning officers was Rabbitskin.
Abont fifteen votes for the government were polled by the Rabbitskin family. ��*
At first the scheme worked very well. The government cauditate had been defeated in the
town aud neighboring settlements. Only the Rabbitskin votes saved him. But after he was
declared elected and the truth came out, he thought it well to resign. Mr. Moberly and his
colleagues were prosecuted. Though they had the assistance of the local agent of the Department of Justice to defend them were convicted.
Mr. Oliver has gone with his family to Europe to re-organize the immigration business.
Having unloaded Mr. Preston ou Sir Richard Cartright, and given the North Atlantic Trading
Company notice that their bonus will ��e discontinued it becomes Mr. Oliver's duty to make
other arrangements. First of ail he ought to have an understanding with Lord Strathcona.
The High Commissioner certainly has good ground to demand a large assortment of appologies
from the Minister of Interior for the slanderous statement made in 1905 and this year that he
was responsible for the North Atlantic Trading Company contract.
One year ago Mr. Foster was condemning this contract in the House and mentioned Mr.
Preston as the man who made it. Mr. Oliver interrupted saying "I beg the honorable gentleman's pardon. If he would change the name to Lord Strathcona.". And Sir Wilfred Laurier,
speaking on the same day, July 13, 1905, "I now come to the practical side of this question. It
was first introduced by Lord Strathcona and was then continued by Mr. Preston on the terms
agreed to by Lord Strathcona."
Writing this year to Sir Wilfrid Laurier Lord Strathcona states that the proposal accepted
by Mr. Preston has been informally made to him ou previous occasions and had not been enter
tained. His Lordship adds: "It is only proper to add that the suggestions never commended
themselves to my better judgment but it was urged upon me so strongly that a trial might be
given to the scheme aud it was received with so much favor with the Department of the Interior,
that I did not feel justified in the circumstauces iu withholding such assistance as I could properly give to carry into effect the declared policy of the Department."
Again, Lord Strathcona says: "While personally I could not approve of the proposed
arrangements, I felt it incumbent ou me, under the circumstances, to carry out the policy of the
Government, but at the same time 1 wish most distinctly to disclaim the direct responsibility
attributed to me in the matter."
Iu another letter Lord Stralhccua gave some of the reasons he bad for not favoring the contract. He said that the coutractors would get the advautage "without any great expense or effort to themselves of the movement which was bouud shortly to take place as the result of our
continuous educational work with the various agencies of the continent."
Today Lord Strathcona expresses the opinion "that the immigration which has taken place
would have been at least as large under ordinary circumstance under the arrangements prior to

Explains How Systematic Forgery
Was Conducted With His
Chicago, Aug. 10.���In addition to tbe
discovery of a private ledger kept by
President Paul O. Stensland or tne
wrecked Milwaukee Avenue State bank,
In which was concealed a record ot
?191,000 of savings bank deposits, another sensational book came to light
during tho examination of Cashier Herring by Assistant States Attorney ui-
seu at the bank last night. This book
showed that the misuser was a heavy
plunger on the races. It contained
memoranda of the campaigns on the
turf. One day Stensland and some
companions bet ?75,000 to win JtiO.000
on a certain horse, and tbe animal won.
There were lots ot losings, however,
shown hy tbe book. The authorities
are chary ot reposing Implicit confidence in Herring's statement tbat ne
did not forge the names on certain
notes, and by Implication insinuating
that Stensland did.
The actual securing of money on bad
paper was always put through at noon,
when the paying teller was at luncb.
Then Herring would enter his cage,
take the money and leave a debit sup
on the hook. This is what happened
on July 28. Herring admits that he
took $1000 from the paying teller's
drawer, put the money ln his pocket'
and put on the spindle a slip charging
the sum to a mythical "Umbach." in
tbe case of tbe money borrowed by
Stensland from the bank Herring said
s that Stensland had Instructed him to
make between $700,000 and $900,000 In
forged notes signed with the names of
prominent patrons of the bank. Also
at Stensland's dictation be cared for
these notes and credited interest on
ihem from time to time, and waa ct-
rected by Stensland to keep them carefully away from tlie eyes, of the note
teller In order that notice should not
be sent to bank patrons whose names
had been forged.

Ia lhe city of Nelson to have a water
.amine Is the question that Is being ask
edtul since lhe publication 111 tho Canadian yesterday of the Information thai
the warning gong al the fire ball baa
sounded a signal from tbo reservoir.
The answer to the question depends
solely upon what action the city council
may lake to prevent such a possible cm
amity In time. Water problems are u it
new in British Columbia, or anywbeie
else toy that mutter, us nearly every city
In Canada has at ono time or auothei
had to lace a crisis In solving the problem of ample water supply. Just now
both Winnipeg and Toronto have their
difficulties after years of experimentation, while Victoria and Vancouver art
nut without serious apprehension as to
wnul the future may have In store, ii-
these larger cities the problem assumes
serious aspects, but for a compact little
town Uke Nelson there should be no dutifully in obviating the last vestige oi
danger or even Inconvenience.
As was pointed out lu our netvs aril
de, theie an* three ways in which tne
drain upon ihe reservoir may be lessened, either reduce the domestic supply,
cut oil tlie water motors, or else reduce
ihe amount thai is used hy consumers
in sprinkling their lawns.
Tbe first and second of these are
oul of the question Tne re is Uu wanton
waste of water used for domestic purposes aud the cutting off ol motor power would cripple ever, important in-
dustiy in Nelsou. There would seem,
therefore, to be but one way to avoid
lowering the reservoir BUpplj below the
point uf safety In anticipation of cm
narrations which might occur. Oul.
yesterday the city of Calgary had v.
serious fire loss In the burning of an
Immense Industry because the water
mains were not yet laid in close prox-
imiiy to the new factory. While we ai>*
prebend no real danger from fire iu
Nelson through a shortage of water,
any such possible danger can be obviated only by the council adopting stern
measures to discontinue tbe reckless
waste of the precious fluid lu many
parts of the city.
��� ������������*
So far as we can call to mind Nelson
in the only city in the province that
permits the unrestricted use ot water
for the purpose of Irrigating lawns and
gardens. The freedom that Is taken
because of this liberty Is one which is
amazing to anyone who has ever lived
lu a city that has proper regulations
respecting the use of waler for this
purpose. While tlje appearance of the
many fine lawns In the city has been
the subject of frequent and admiring
oomment and is a matter of pride, both
to the owners ami to the city, which
claims a general Interest in such assets. It is now beginning to be discovered that this beauty is being purchased
at a prlc ��� thut may some day prove
too great for the city to assume. It is
not exaggerating to say that many gardens and lawns are kepi sprinkled night
ami day and that the hose���often more
than one-is kept running at full delivery every hour iu the awentyfotir. A
clever mathematician could easily estimate the probable consumption of water and consequent drain upon the reservoir supply if furnished with the
number Of lawn owners who offend iu
this way. It would be found If such
were done that the most serious difficulty against which the city has to
contend is the wanton if not criminal
waste of its water supply iii this way.
ii any demonstration of the truth oi
this proposition Is needed, let the use
ol water for irrigation purposes b^ prohibited tor three days, or even one day,
an let the reservoir be measured, and
ii will be found that therein lies lhe
solution ot lhe problem. Most people
water their lawns too freely, aud it Is
now well understood by horticultural
and agricultural authorities thut grass
takes deeper root and keeps a greener
surface 11 It is sprinkled freely for a
couple oi hours about three times a
weeK. There are some lawns in Nelson where streams run, literally pour
tug over the surface of the lawn Into
the Btreet gutter, doing no goml and
probably much harm.
���       ����������������
If the civic* fathers will do as other
cities which have learned their lesson,
���Jtteii ai great cosl, that is, pass a law
limiting the use of water to certain
hours of the day, and then strictly enforce the law, beginning with the city
lathers and civic officials themselves,
they will rind an ample supply in the
reservoir and no danger from thai
source as far as fires or other drains
upon Lhe water system win demand. It is largely a question of back*
bone on the part of the council. No
doubt such action would cause an outcry from the untutored, but it will be
better to have ihat now than to be told
when too late that it should have been
done long ago.
We believe, however, that the citizens
-if Nelson, of all classes, are sufficiently law-loving and law-abiding to obey
any civic ordinance that may he enacted, and we are confident that they will
Buffer little inconvenience from doing
The question of electric power and
light supply is not the only one the city
has to face If It is to become tbe Mecca
or tourists and the pride of the Kootenays. The water question, as we intimate in another article, is easy ot
solution, bul features that make the
city so refreshing In scenic and climatic attraction are so easily marred
by other things that some attention
must be paid to the tout ensemble IT ws
are to realize all we are struggling for.
We have iu mind as a proper subject
for criticism the condition of the sewer
which empties Into the river at the foot
of Ward street, just behind the provincial gaol. The Canadian office, probably because this is an evening paper,
Is a rendezvous for tourists aud travelers who visit Nelsou, and while, as
we said a few days ago, ajl these are
Umd in the expressions of appreciation
��jf the little city among the hills, they
often take the liberty to speak freely
oi what ought not to be.
As is well known, the sewer iu question drains an Important part or the
city, and it so happens���if such things
ever just happen���that it Is not carried
sufficiently far out Into the stream to
catch the current and thus rapidly disperse in the waters of the Kootenay.
Anyone who looks can see that at certain levels of the water in the stream
there is a back eddy at the point where
the sewer empties, and    tbe    sewage
which should be rapidly carried away is
held Iu solution iu the murky pond
thai exists at the point In question.
While the effluvium is not Bopffehsive
In cool weuther, there are limes In the
hot season when the stench which is
given off is positively offensive to uio
hotel guests, and on hot evenings it
floats higher and higher, until il becomes nauseating to the permanent residents upon the Upper levels of Uie city
One of the Canadian's Informants described a common experience when he
said that lhe street car passengers
passing a certain point are obliged to
"hold their noses" till they round the
ciirvo ai the cornei' of Ward and Water
While tlu' Canadian is nol a knocker
and can stand this sort or thing as well
as auy of lhe citizens, it is simply a
question as to whether we bad better

Lemons   in   British   Columbia.
Lemons grown in Itritish Columbia
are a very rare occurrence indeed, but
they may be seen in Nanaimo, says
lhe Colonist. The owner of ihe lemon
tree, lhat is actually hearing fruit, is
Mrs. Thomas Kltchin of Mewcastl
townsite. ;n Nanaimo, and she lakes a
very natural pride in showing this tree
lu visitors, for she planted It and cared
for it herself, until now. The fruit is
developed to the size of a large egg.
and though .green, shows promise ut
ripening Into choice lemons uf the best
quality, Mrs. Kltchin claims that this
is the only lemon tree in Hritish Columbia that bears fruit,
Mrs. Kit chin is mistaken, as Rev.

himself interviewed and put on record
lor Chinese labor, and said he was glad
tbe fruit growers' union had courage
to do the same. It lakes brave men
to do that, but we have people who
don't appreciate that kind of a hero.
Who wants this country filled up with
a swarm of opium smoking slaves. 1
have taken a pre-emption In the Salmon
river valley and win employ white men,
who live aud spend iheir money in this
Country, Mr, Wilson bus a fruit farm

have some land cleared nol long ago,
mid wuh asked If be could not liavo
;;ot it done cheaper, 11<* said ".en,
but u man con Id nol -work for less
than %'.', a day here and nave auy money." it Ih needless _o say that Mr.
Wilson did not Spend |6Q on a I rip tu
Nelson, with those windy labor agitators of the Fruit Growers' association
and howl for coolie labor and high
prices for their frull. We have a Frull
Growers' association and lots of Chinamen in California. A great many ol
the large fruit growers rent their places
to Cbitianieu, go to some big city and
slay there; their families spend their
money on monkey parties and fancy
clothes. The Chinamen live like hogs
and send most of Iheir m ui.*\ lo China.
There are some fruit growers who do
not like the Chinese for neighbors.
The) si ll out cheap und some of us
move to British Columbia. Mr. Mcitae
says Hi- labor unions are frightened
by a shadow If they oppose Tree

I read iu thi; Daily Canadian August
2 thut Bishop Hartwell has j.isi arrived from Africa, and states there are
CO.lMIO Chinamen employed in mines,
and they are learning tho work. The
Boors did not care fur lhat kind or labor and the mine owners had tlie courage to force Ki .gland into a war so the
Capitalists could run the country to suit
themselves. Those mine owners are
interested in mines and smelters here
With tne Chinese labor ,what will prevent them from shipping 60,000 Chinamen hen- from Africa after they have
barned the work, put them In a smelter wiih a high wall around, a search-

Seattle,   Aug.   10.���Swift water   nut

ln the courts, but have been served.
Gates charges his wife, who ls said to
In- but 20 years of age and to be related to the Alaska Don Juan by marriage, with a statutory offense. Two
t-is-respondents are named.
I-'red H. Lyons, attorney for Mrs.
dates, today applied to Judge Griffin
in the superior1 court for an order cit-
Ing Gates to pay $3000 Into the registry
of the court, to be applied as follows:
Ono thousand dollars for temporary
tnalnUmanoo, an e-.ual amount for suit
money, and 11000 more for attorneys
fees. Judge Griffin entered an order
citing Gates to appear I-'rlday of next
week and show cause why he should
not pay Ihis money to his wife.
The story is told by Gates' friends

The present Mrs. Gates Is said to be
