Committee of the Nelson University
Club wus held Saitirday afternoon to
a-onsiiier the amendments to the Uni-
reielty Hill which have been offered In
committee of the legislature by Sluart
Henderson. M. L. A. for Ashcroft.
On   comparisam   of   Mr.   Henderson's
propoaai'a with the clauses of the bin
as alrawu by the minister of education,
many were considered either of small
moment or on manors of administration
abanit which tlie club is not interested.
Others were found to vitally affect the
value of the bill, and on these a resolution, moved by Ur. Arthur, seconded by
A. L. McKillop, was carried unanimously and ordered to be sent to the min-
ista-r aaf a'alucalion, coiales to be sent to
Mr. Henderson uud Ur. Hall. The resolution w-as as foilowsL
"Resolved that the members of the
I'nlveisity Club of Nelson respectfully
urge upon the provincial government
that the aniauidtnents to the University
Bin proposed by the honorable member
for Ashcroft be uot accepted in regard
to tlie following Actions, and for the
ri'iisous respectively appended:
To Section 10, Subsection A.���Because the recognition of other than
British universities would admit many
to convocation whose diplomas are from
colleges of no recognized standing, tbe
holders of purchased degrees, aud further would be in opposition to the position already taken iu tills respect In the
Provincial School Act; and In the caae
of the Seconal amendment to this subsection, because the requirement of
registration ou voters' llBts would dls-
Qualify women, who are elsewhere in
lhe bill expressly declared to be eligible.
"To Section 22���For the reason last
"To Section 51, Subsections A. and
D.���Because we consider it most deslr-
able that both the minister and superintendent of education, or at least the
latter,   should    be    a    member   of   the
"To Section 91.���A reported amendment offend In debate to strike out the
provision that candidates for degrees in
theology from affiliated colleges must
bu graduates of recognized universities
���for the reason that Is Is ln the highest
degree undesirable that any theological
college In afiUlation with the provincial
unlvoisity should have the power, by
granting degrees (o those who have re-
.-.ivail little or uo general education, to
confer the distinction of recognition by
the unlvi'i-slty upon a hody of men of
Inferior attainments.
Tha. members of this club were particularly gratified by the provisions In-
Oluded in Section 1,1 as originally drafter."

Von  Veitheim   Says   Death   of  Barney
Barnato  was  First  Cause  of
Boer War.
London, Feb. 17.���According to a
statement made by Carl Von Veitheim
in old Bailey, during his trial for attempting to blackmail Solly H Joel, the
well known capitalist out of $80,000,
his letter demanding money was merely a reminder that the Barnarto firm
of which S. B. Joel ts a member bad
covenanted to pay Veitheim for engineering a revolution In the Transvaal
and he wanted $80,000.
Joel testified at length regarding*
other threatening letters he received
signed "Kismet." and Veitheim admitted he wrote them. It was the "one
silly tiling 1 ever did in my life." he
said, but pleaded that they were merely written to gratify Miss Caldecott,
who had some animosity for Joel and
wished to frighten him. Veitheim added that he had subsequently explained this to Woolf Joel, Solly Joel's brother and had received the former's forgiveness. Veitheim made some dramatic statements on tbe stand. He said
he was Introduced to Barrney Barnato
in 1*596 by the minister of a South African state whom he refused to name.
Veitheim had been concerned in two
South American revolutions and the
minister whom he helped recommended
hlni to Barney Barnato for his ability
In handling revolutionary movements.
The prisoner described the Interview
with Barnato, who he said wanted
Paul Kruger, the president of the Transvaal, "removed." He asked Veitheim
what, in his opinion the revolution
would cost. Veitheim suggested $2,-
Barnato said It was cheap at $2,500,*
000. Veitheim asked between $210,000
and $250,000 as his own fee. Barnato
enjoined secrecy nnd paid Veitheim at
various interviews retaining fees amounting to $7,500. It was arranged at
a final Interview to continue the preliminaries, but no report was to be
made until the arrival of Woolf Joel
In South Africa. Barnato's suicide
shortly followed and Veitheim decided
to stay in South Africa until Woolf
Joel arrived, he serving meanwhile
with the Bechuiiniiland Mounted Police.
After Woolf Joel's arrival, Veitheim
had several Interviews with him concerning the pica. Woolf Joel undertook
to pay hlni $60,000. but raised difficulties about transferring this sum, as the
discovery of such a transaction would
endanger all Barnato's property In the
Transvaal. Then came the final Interview at which Veitheim shot. Woolf
Tho court listened ln deep silence
while the prisoner volubly and dramatically described how Woolf Joel Insisted that Veitheim must go to London
to receive the promised $60,000, and
how Woolf Joel's companion at a sign
fiom Joel tried to shoot Veitheim;
how Joel then drew his revolver; how
Veitheim fired in self defense, killing
Woolt Joel, and how he was tried and
acquitted of the charge of murder.
"But for this shooting affair In Joel's
office," said Veitheim, "there would
have been uo Boer war, because President Kruger would have been forced
out of the country nnd another Boer
president put In  his  place."

Randolph, of the Edison Manufacturing
company, of which Thomas A. Edison
ls president, committed suicide iu the
cellar of his residence. New Valley Way,
today, by shooting himself In the head.

trouble in either his business or his
family. Mr. Randolph was private secretary to Thomas A. Edison, and Mr.
Edison was one of the first to reach his
house after his death was known.
That" Mr. Randolph did not follow her
husband to death was due to the prompt
and determines action of Mr. Edison.
When he reached the house Mrs. Randolph was crying out that she would
kill herself. He came upon her as she
was about to throw herself from a second storey win low, seized her and after
a hard struggl: succeeded In pulling her
back to a pla i of safety. Several letters show the act was deliberately planned. In one t dressed to Mr. Randolph
he assured 1 r that provision had been
made when y all his property would
go to her. The letter declared that
every dolla. of which he was possessed
he gained onestly and by hard work.
Among ot r letters was one for Mr.
Edison ai also one for Mrs. Edison.
The conn ita of these were not made
public. '

Rev. N. G. Poon Chow, editor of the
Chinese World, told his audience that
China was raising an army of one million to drive the European nations trom

Drillsh Government WD
Answer Germany
Limitation of Armaments Is Farther
Away Than Ever���Question
of Floating Mines.
London, Feb. 17.���In view of the
threatening attitude of that section of
the radical party which advocates reduction ln armaments, there has been
much speculation as to whether the
government will persist In the determination, reached on the advice of the
lords of the admiralty, to aubmit Increased naval estimates to parliament.
Those ln a position to know say they
will, and backed by strong public opinion, can carry them through without
difficulty. What these estimates provide for in the way of new construction
ls another question that bas been much
discussed. A naval officer gives the following aa the programme: three
armoured vessels of the Dreadnaught
type, two cruisers. Improvements on
the old Edgar class, heavily armed and
well protected; six smaller cruisers, of
25,000 tons, with a great radius of action; at least twelve torpedo craft, tbe
majority of them to be of the Tartar
This is not looked upon as a complete
answer to German's programme. Germany's refusal to agree at the Hague
to the proposal to prohibit the placing
of floating mines has caused British activity ln thiB direction. Heretofore this
country hag had but two mine-laying;
vessels. Since the Hague conference-
adjourned, work has commenced on the*
conversion of three second class cruisers for this purpose.

thin aad expected nothing better,
We had grown no accustomed ua ihin

to him for righteousness thai be waa
able to keep quiet, if he had done nothing worthy aa ilu- representative of
Kootenay lie had at least not larauiKlii
ridicule upon It, and with lln- ipeo-
tacle of Vancouver's affliction before uh.
we were prepared to he grateful even
for that favor.
It seemed almost a ilgn of grace in
Mr. Galllher, as if he appreciated the
eateem In which he ia held in Kootenay and knew lhat he was not expected to he interested In anythlnt. hut the
aecnrlng of eonoeaalon** for corpora-
tions. It even (earned that he recognized that the pretence of a serious
speech from him on a subject of national Importance would be an Impertinence.
Nelson at least, probably the whole
of Kootenay, was grateful lo Mr. Galllher for his Hilence.
Hut ln a moment of weakness Mr.
Galllher made a speech on the subject
of  Oriental  immigration  and  the Le-
riiia-nx minalon. No notice was taken of
it by tor-graphic correspondents in the
i :. gallery mar by the special oorrea-
pondents .jf aha- papera of Montreal anal
Toronto. Bul the Victoria Times, that
patient worshipper of everything la-
belled Lib,-ral, has reproduced It in
full. It w;a.-s no kiridnens to .Mr. Galli-
h<-r though undoubtedly intenaled as
such. The speech fills more than five
columns of the Victoria Times. All
that In In it could have been condensed
into ISO lines, hut the condensation
would, of course*, have revealed its
"Big Bill" belongs to the genus "good
fellow." Sound tha.* festive hoard he
can tell a good yarn, he can discrimiri-
ara- between funny story and flat ones,
occasionally lit- can make a witty remark, but be ib aa Incapable of a valuable contribution to the dlscussiam of
an Important subject as he Is of a
Statesmanlike (-lew or a stand for principle against Interest Of his five or
Six thousand Words contributed to the
padding of Hansard, moat are mere
waanls. Iu lhe flrat two columns the
only thing of any Importance, interest
..i even relevancy, is ibe correction
aai a statement by Mr. Lemieux that sso
years ago Asiatic Immigration wits wel-
corned to British Columbia, This Is of
incidental Importance, Mr. Lemieux
should have attained a complete under-
standing of tin- subject before he was
accredited as Canadian envoy to Japan.
It Is a little disquieting to find at this
alula- ihat in- r.-i|iiii.-ai enlightenment
irom Mr. Oalliher on such a point as
The only serious part of Mr. Galll-
lu-r's long effusion is a contention, Into
which he seems to have blundered without any premeditation, that the ratification of the treaty with Japan was not
duo to any oversight or any failure to
recognize* lis possible consequences. Of
course, if Mr. Galllher Is right, Sir Wilfrid Laurier and all the other ministers
and members are wrong. Hut, conceding
for a moment thai Mr. Oalliher is right,
what is Involved?    it is a declaration
that tbe government signed a formal
treaty, trusting to an alleged verbal
statement by an agent wholly unauthorised that the other party to the treaty
would not take advantage of it; lhat
after finding that Japanese were taking
advantage of their treaty rights, they
sen Mr. Lemieux Io secure a renewal
of tho verbal assurance from tbe party
now in power in Japan, an assurance
not binding even on the most liberal
interpretation of international law. utterly vaeue, and with no time specified.
If lhat Is the way that Bill comes to
the rescue of his party, we can imagine
Sir Wilfrid Laurier praying that he
wouSd take another excursion to New-
York or do anything else that would
keep him from taking part In debates.
It cannot be said that his speech is conspicuously silly in a bouse which has
alread;. I  to Hob McPherson and
Uuncan Ross, but Hill has said nothing
and kwrkftil viae for so many years that
has been credited with ln-
��� :ice.
The net result of Hritish Columbia's
. ��� - participation ln the
al debate is the conviction that
not one of the seven is competent to
analyz- ��� treaty, to think intelligently
aan a sertoas problem air even to invent
a passable excuse for neglect and

New  York   Paper's  Comparison  of  His
Pose Today With That of Twelve
Years Ago.
New York, Feb. 17.���It Is a coincidence that on the day Mr. William Jennings Bryan Introduced himself to Canadians as a preacher, a writer ln the
New York Times, in the course of an
analysis of his character should come
to the conclusion that Mr. Bryan Is,
above all others things, a preacher. As
a rule the people In the Eastern States,
whether writers or readers, have not
been disposed to admit that the Man
from Nebraska ls even sincere. He
has been too often treated as a faker,
even by the New York World, which ls
considered by millions to be the organ
of the Democratic parly. It is therefore a refreshing change, ou the eve of
a great political campaign, to find a
paper like the New York Times giving
Mr. Bryan a page without one disparaging line.
Most people have a more or less clear
conception of Mr. Bryan, of "the cross
of gold" speech of twelve years ago, but
the writer in the Times���William 11.
Hale���insists that the Bryan of 189C
and the Bryan of 19US are two different men. With this assertion Mr. Bryan
himself will hardly agree. Indeed, he
"I doubt if I have changed much. Essentially, perhaps, not at all. You Bee.
years ago 1 struck out certain principles
for my own guidance, and I took my
stand upon them. Now, principles do
no change. Their application changes;
their meaning broadens; they reveal
new aspects as the light of new events
fall upon them, but they themselves do
not change. I am true absolutely to the
principles upon which I made my first
appeal to the American people. I have
not even had to reconsider them. 1
hope, however, that I have been able to
appreciate their widening aud even
their changing applicability. Twelve
years hardly allow one to stand still
Alter all one may be true to the same
principles and change a great deal in
the course of a few months, let alone
a few years. Mr. Hale says that Mr.
Bryan has changed more physically and
temperamentally than mentally. He Is
not quite the Don Quixote that he was.
He is no longer burning with the audacity that shone in the famous speech
when he dazzled the Chicago convention of 1896, and became the Ideal of
Western Democracy. Instead of the
headlong enthusiasm of young days,
Mr. Bryan has "a new poise, a maturer
confldeuce, a more patient comprehension of the facts of life. He is mellower
and sweeter. He ls graver. He ought
to he wiser." What else could one expect? If twelve years of strenuous political activity, half a dozen tremendous
disappointments, a leisurely tour around
the world, the discovery of unsuspected
foes, and new friends���If all these
things cannot make a man at least
wiser there Is no virtue in experience
of any kind.
Most men would be soured hy such
experience as has come to Mr. Bryan
ln the past twelve years; but he ls not
soured, as far as one can Judge from
his published utterances. He Is an optimist, and firmly believes that the
world is growing better each day. He
believes that the principles that he base

advocated from t'ae moment of his entry ui>on public life are now embraced
by niillio...; who at first opposed them
and him, and by other millions who oppose him now, hut have adopted hla
principles. Among the latter he counts
President Roosevelt; and indeed one
needs only a very superficial knowledge
of American affairs to realize' that
Roosevelt and Bryan are more alike
than Roosevelt and McKlnley, Roosevelt
and Fairbanks, llryan and Parker or
Bryan and Cleveland. The Tact Is that
Roosevelt ls a Republican only In so far
as he is a Federalist.
It has been often said that the president has done more for Mr. Bryan than
any other man. Democrats claim that
the president has introduced Bryanlsm
to the people of the United States, and
has paveal the way for the real Bryan.
It Is quite likely that a Republican who
might be tagged "reactionary" would
be defeated in the coming presidential
struggle. That Mr. Bryan will be the
Democratic candidate seems certain, lt
remains to be seen whether he can consolidate the eastern Democrats, who
four years ago forced Judge Parker on
the party. That a weaker candidate
could hardly have been chosen was
proved ln the election; and now It a|i-
pears that there Is no easterner In sight
who has a chance of taking the nomination away from Mr. Bryan. But a nomination without a united party to .support lt 1b barren honor; and for the
next nine months Mr. Bryan will be engaged on the most strenuous Job he
ever tackled. His visit to Canada is a
breathing spell, the Inst he will have
until next November.
