and the patient discnarged from the

Professor Sullun gives Ihe following
account of the operation, which is believed lo be without parallel:

In the public accounts committee today Hon. tl. E. FoBter opened an enquiry into the accountB of Kenneth
Falconer, accountant, Montreal, who
made the examination into the method
or bookkeeping employed ln the marine
department with a view to introduce
improvement. Falconer's account for
this work amounted to $42,000, of which
$36,000 had been paid to date.
A. W. Owen, accountant of the marine
department, was the first witness called. He said he certified to Falconer's
accounts on instructions trom the
deputy minister of marine, but on instructions of Hrodeur he had held back
$6,800 because of the latter s absence

Kenneth Falconer followed. He said
he was secretary and managing director of Dunn, Richards und company,
Montreal, accountants. He gave an
elaborate description of the work done
ln the 111:1: iin��� department. He suld the
firm was mude up of Messrs. Dunn and
Richards of New York, his brother, A.
Falconet, und H. S. Williams, Montreal,
as well as the witness himself. They
wore Incorporated by the Quebec legislature, but not until after the contract
wus mude with the murine department.
He said he had never been a chartered
accountant. He said the contract was
obtained from the marine department
in the ordinary way.
Falconer said he charged half time
for his men travelling to and from the
place of operation. Amoong the New-
Yorkers for whom charges for travelling expenses were made were Rlch-
nrds, Dunn and Fawcett, who received
respectively $75, $75 und $50. The majority of the men who examined the

Admiral  torn Reports It Ready to Sail
for Anywhere.
Sau Diego, March 12.���A wireless
m< ssage received late last night by the
Point Loma government wireless station announced thut Rear Admiral
Evans and his big battleship fleet arrived off Magdalena Bay lust night. According to the message the fleet will lie

Press and  Public  No  Longer  Advocate
Aggression  Agsinst  Chirrs-
Moral View Prevails.
Toklo, March 12.���The demand of the
press und the public of Japan for aggressive action against China in connection with the Tatsu Maru affair is
The Asahl, one of the most influential newspapers, urges the government
to consider seriously the moral side of
the case and not to press China to extremes. It thinks thut Japan should
exercise a greater vigilance concerning
the export of arms destined for the use
of Insurgents against a friendly government. The view is gaining ground and
it is understood that the minister of
war, General Terauchl, and Vice Admiral Salto, minister of marine, are opposed to aggressive tactics. The British minister, Sir Claude MacDonald,
held a lengthy conference with the foreign office yesterday. The sentiment
or the foreign office supports the suggestion that Great Britain is urging an
amicable sentiment and dwelling upon
tlie moral obligation of the Japanese
towards China. The foreign office asserts that no ultimatum has been issued in the matter, but the belief is expressed that the negotiations may be
protracted. In well informed circles it
is asserted that China will eventually
agree to the demands of Japan ln consideration of a pledge upon the part
of Japan that a closer watch will be
kept upon the exportation of arms.

behalf of his "new theology," the central idea of which is the denial of the
divine origin of Christ, whom he regards as a social reformer. Rev. Mr.

Did for Canada
Story of Exploration and Development
of the West���Next Subject Is
Christian Science.
The first of tbe series of Lenten lectures under tbe auspices of the Churchman's club was held in tbe parish room
last  night wilh a  fair attendance.
The feature of the programme was
a very interesting lecture by E. K.
BeeBton on the Hudson s Bay Company,
with which he was connected lor many
It began with an historical review
of the company's development from its
promotion by Pierre Esprit de Radisson
in 1668, and was traced lo the present
day, dealing with the exploration ot
the country by the early officers of the
company, the humane and paternal
re.iinii'iii of the Indians, the assistance
given to the promotion of religion and
educ.it.on, and showing how, at the
proper time, the country had been
handed over to the Dominion government aud its present occupancy und ad-
ministration rendered possible by the
assistance and example of the company.
Tne lecture was enriched by many
anecdotes of early days and Illustrated
by quotations from many old und valuable documents.
The uudlence was taken for an Imaginary trip from old Lachlne by way
of the Ottawa river and the innumerable waterways of Northern Ontario,
Manitoba and the MacKeuzie basin, to
the mouth of the Yukon, a journey
which the lecturer stated could be made
on a five dollar bill, provided the traveller carried one requisite���a letter of
credit on tile ubiquitous post of the
Hudson's Bay company.
Reference was made to the great
number of company officers who by
their explorations had given their
names to rivers, lakes, mountains and
settlements throughout Western Canada.
Mr. Beeston said ln conclusion:
"I would like to talk with you more
of the early discoveries of this part ot
the country and the great part that the
Hudson's Bay company took in the retention of It to British crown, when it
was a very grave question whether the
boundary of the United States might
not be extended even to Alaska.
"Time, however, will not permit, but
I trust 1 have shown that this corporation has had a romantic and useful existence, and has played a greater part
ln the development of the Northwest
than is generally appreciated or understood, and I would only add that the
greatest and best known Canadian of
the day���a man prominent not only in
the commercial world but in British
politics���the governor of the Hudson's
Bay company, the virtual head of the
Bank of Montreal, and of the Canadian
Pacific railway, is an old Hudson's Bay
company's commissioned officer who
entered the service nearly seventy
years ago. Lord Strathcona's strongest
boast has been his connection with the
Hudson's Bay company, and his association with so many individuals ln it ot
uscfuness to mankind, of great generosity and of a high order of honor."

hia very interesting lecture, waa proposed by R. W. Hannington, seconded

Keep OuV anarchists.
Ottawa March 12.���The Canadian Immigration department some time ago
took steps which will prevent the anarchists of the United States who are
lo be driven out locating In this country, at least. In any great numbers. For
some weeks past officials of the depart
ment have been across the border making a study of tbo syBtem there to
keep tab on criminals and people with
dangerous political tendencies. In a
word, Canada ln a short time whlll have
a "rogues' gallery" of her own, and suspects will be photographed at the border. Tbe number of detention officers
along the Canadian border will be increased. Border detention officials will
be Instructed to travel as far as possible In the United States to meet trains

department is not apprehensive that
many anarchists will be able to get into Canada; tbe greatest difficulty will,
of course, be ln Montreal and Toronto.
Kansas   Populists.
Topeka, Kas., March 12.���The remnant of the once-powerful People's party ln Kansas assembled in mass convention in Topeka today to select delegates to represent the state at the

the national convention.
Question of General Strike Believed to
Depend on Influence of John
Indianapolis, March 12.���The national convention of the United Mine
Workers of America reconvened in this
city today to make another attempt to
decide upon a policy to be pursued after March 31, when the existing agreement with the operators will expire.
Three joint conferences of operators
and miners have alieady been held
without result, and six months has
been wasted ln futile argument and
strategic sparring, if no better results
are accomplished at tbe present meeting a general strike iu all probability
will   follow.
Has John Mitchell, retiring president
of the United Mine Workers, more influence than Tom L. Lewis, president
elect, who is to take office the first of
next month ? On the answer is believed to depend the question whether
there will be a general suspension of
bituminous coal mining in western Pennsylvania,  Ohio,  Indiana and  Illinois.
The question of the influence of the
two leaders is to be fought out in the
convention which began today, and adherents of both are prepared for a lively contest. If Mitchell carries the convention the operators in Indiana and
Illinois will be allowed to settle with
their miners as separate states or
jointly, aB they may elecL If Lewis
wins   the  suspension   will   be   general.
The operators in Ohio are said to
favor a strike. They have millions of
tons of coal on hand, and, should a
strike take place, they believe they
can dispose of a large part of it in
Indiana and   Illinois  markets.
The operators in Indiana- and Illinois
have practically come to an understanding and they do not want a general suspension. They feel that the
siluaton hinges entirely on whether
President Mitchell can carry his policy through the convention.
Three propositions are before the
miners' convention for consideration
and action. The first Ib to proceed at
once to frame the wage demands and,
having completed that task, to issue
a call for a joint wage conference between operators and miners ot the
states   Interested.
The second propostlon Is to draft
wage demands and Issue calls for joint
wace conferences with the operators
by districts.
The third proposal is to shut down
all of the mines ln one big strike, and
thus try to force settlement by competitive districts.

that after a careful investigation there

confident tbat the fifteen registered
mail packets which disappeared ln

the steamer Celtic between Liverpool

they had not been stolen. The receipts
from the Celtic show that the right

department has not received verification from New York that the bags had
been delivered there.

Thursday,  March  12,  1908.
As a specimen of impudent, unblushing falsehood the charge made by the
Toronto Globe that Conservative members of the House of Commons had mutilated or misappropriated documents.
the property of that house, is probably unrivalied in Canadian political
It has, however, one redeeming feature. It implies recognition uf the fact
that something extraordinary had to be
alleged in excuse of the concealment
irom parliament of public papers. But
tliat ib all. Nothing can conceivably
be invented as an excuse for such an
outrageous accusation.
The editor of the Toronto Globe was
once a preacher of the gospel. lie
lias devoted his talents and attainments to tlie cause of bis political party with a thoroughness and an absence
of scruple that would do credit to the
father of the  Machine.
Probably the first attempt at explanation will be that the editor was so
informed by the minister he was trying to shield. That will not be patient
)y received by the people of Canada.
The editor of so Important a party
organ as the Globe must know the
character of the present ministers. If
he publishes so wild a statement on
such authority it is rather an aggravation ol  the offence.
The utter falsehood of the accusation was so evident that it hardly required the indignant denial of the
members who were slandered. It was
obviously an afterthought. If there
w ere the slightest ground for the
charge, Mr. Oliver aud other ministers
had a score of opportunities, in committee and In the house, for pleuding
It in defence of their unprecedented refusal to allow members of parliament
to  inspect parliamentary  and    depart
mental papers. Every other impudent
pretext was offered but not this. On
Tuesday of this week Mr. Pugsley pleaded that Mr. Oliver's aqt was due to
a misunderstanding and that there
would be no further trouble about
members' rights to see all documents.
Just what kind of misunderstanding
led Mr. Oliver to think he could refuse
a constitutional right, is not apparent.
Hut the explanation w*as offered and
the disgraceful incident seemed to be
Now. whether on his own authority
or that of a minister, the editor of
the Globe offers, in defence of an utterly unjustifiable course, a glaring
falsehood. It is promptly copied, with
or without credit to the Globe, by
every Machine organ in the country,
including   our   local   contemporary.
Perhaps it is as well that the denial
has come promptly. Wildly untrue as
it was. it might have deceived some
credulous people.
We concede that It would be unfair
to hold the ministers responsible for
the falsehood published by the once
reverend editor of the Globe, but the
political manners and methods of the
Liberal press throughout Canada have
been once more exhibited for the edi-
Beatton of the electorate. It will prob-
ab'.p dawn soon even on the dullest
that those who resort first to concealment and then to brazen lying have
done something that Imperatively requires concealment and  lying.

In the Toronto Globe the local Machine
organ     deliberately    suppresses,     from

among its Ottawa despatches, the account of the repudiation of the charges
by the men slandered. Even the Globe
wouldn't do that.
The leading article in the last issue
to hand of Collier's Weekly is devoted to the recent negotiations between
th>- governments of Canada and Japan.
Tata writer is perfectly familiar with
all the Incidents of the trouble. He
even thinks he could explain the disappearance of Messrs, Nosse and Mori-
kawa. He is especially amused at the
pretended gratification over the results
of the l^emieux mission, which he correctly estimates at nil, predicting that
the restricting by Japan of emigration
from Japan to Canada, will not be noticed by any corporation that requires
cheap labor. The writer assigns the
blame for Canada's present helpless
P sitlon to the Dominion government
ratifying tht- Japanese treaty without
any clause providing for restriction of
Immigration, and he considers tbe British Columbia representatives especlal-
Ij  rt- possible for the defect.

the latter telling his audiences that a
vote for the opposition was a vote
against Laurler. Mr. Aylesworth telegraphed his best wishes for Liberal
success, and every Dominion department was as far as possible placed at
the service of the Machine. But since
the morning after every Machine organ
has discovered that tbe defeat of Premier Robinson's "coalition" government has no political significance.
No part of North America suffered
less from last year's financial panic
than British Columbia although the
conditions of rapid development made
it peculiarly liable to adverse influences accompanying the loss or even the
shaking of business confidence. The explanation is that the confidence in British Columbia established by the
strong, consistent and efficient administration of the McBride government,
was not shaken.
Simon Newcomb's Birthday.
Dr. Simon Newcomb. the astronomer,
and perhaps the best known of all living mathematicians, was born March
12, lfco5, at Wallace, Nova Scotia. He
was first educated in the school of his
father. Professor John Newcomb, and
went to the United States in 1853. For
two years he taught in schools in Maryland and then became a computer on
tiie Nautical Almanac at Cambridge,
Mass. In 1861 he became a professor
in tbe United States navy and remained in the service until retired for age
in 1897. Dr. Newcomb was secretary
of the Transit of Venus Commission
from 1871 to 1874; observed the transit
of Venus at the Cape of Good Hope in
18*4, and directed several eclipse expeditions. For ten years he was professor of mathematics. He is one of
the few foreign members of the Institute of France, and the first native American since Franklin to receive that hon-
OT. Dr. Newcomb has published many
astronomical memoirs, and tables of
the motions of the stars and planets
now used by astronomers tn their computations.

Albert   Evans  Dead.
Old time Winnipeggerb uow residing
lu Nelsun will regret to learu of the
death of Albert Evans, which took
place ut the Manitoba capital last
Wednesday. The late Albert Evans,
who was 59 year of uge, was for 20
years organist in St. Mary's church,
Winnipeg, resigning some two weeks
ago. He was a prominent musician,
belli a splendid pianist and vocalist, as
well as an urganist uf repute. He was
the founder of Evans' orchestra. On
lebruary 12 he was seized with a paralytic stroke but recovered. On February 21 he suffered another attack from
t he effects of which he never revov-
Rossland Band in Spokane,
The Kossland Italian band is now in
.Spokane tilling an engagement at the
principal theatre in that city. The band
has had Professor Gennaro Antoniello,
a graduate of the Milan conservatory,
for lis leader and instructor for the
past twenty months. None of the members had ever played in a band before
he undertook their training, and under
his tutelage they have developed into
musicians of such capacity that he has
no hesitation about making a theatrical
tour  with them.
Lome Campbell Optimistic.
L.. A. Campbell, of the West Kootenay
Power and Light company, has returned from a brief visit to the coast cities.
Mr. Campbell is a careful observer of
business conditions and he expresses
the opinion that affairs at Victoria and
Vancouver are in a better condition
than the reports generally would lead
one to believe. The people are looking
for a marked Improvement just as soon
us the Grand Trunk Pacific begins construction work from Prince Rupert towards the east. Mr. Campbell states
that there Is considerable building In
progress in Vancouver, and more projected. The volume of business transacted is so large that it does not warrant the poor mouth the majority of
people are putting on.
A Message From Winnipeg.
John Toye, formerly of Nelson but
onw of Winnipeg, is In the city. Mr.
Toye states that there is -"*arcely anything in the way of speculation in land
going on at the prairie capital. Property
maintains its value but there is little
of it changing hands. Notwithstanding this there will be a large amount
of building next year. The C. P. R.
will spend a large amount on construc
tion work, and It ia understood that the
Dominion government will erect public
buildings in nearly every city throughout the west. Money is tight on account of the banks refusing to take the
farmers' notes as collateral. The merchant's, Instead of depositing the notes
at the banks, put them Into their own
safes. Generally speaking, however,
the feeling as to the future is a hopeful
one, and business is fairly good.
One  Explanation.
In discussing the difficulty experienced by the late 20,000 club and present Publicity Bureau of raising hinds
for advertising work, a Baker street
merchant said yesterday: "The difficulty Is not due to indifference. Every
one would gladly see the work continued, but the number of calls on merchants for subscriptions lu the course
of a year would surprise most people.
We have to contribute for the Fair, for
the Dominion Day celebration, for support of athletic organizations of all
kinds, hospitals, library, churches and
Sunday schools, and an occasional
special charity. The total of one merchant's subscriptions Is no trifle. Of
course we all benefit by the work of
the club, but sometimes it is very indirect. The chief benefit is derived by
the hotels and the real estate men. If
they will do their fair share, most of
the merchants will do their part."
Lacrosse Team for England.
There is trouble In Toronto over the
selection of the lacrosse team to go to
England. The Toronto Telegram says
the selection of a Canadian lacrosse
team to go to England should have
been placed not in the hands of Individuals, but in tbe hands of associations. .Let the British Columbia association pick, say three players, a couple
more be selected by the leagues on the
prairies, and the remainder be selected
trom the hundreds of young players
who handle sticks in the C. L. A. Bring
those players to some central point,
and by a series of matches bring them
into a team, and there is no reason
why Canada should not retain the amateur championship of its own sport. It
is a burning shame to admit that Canada cannot produce a team of amateur
lacrosse players able to hold their own
against the best amateurs in the world.
It would also be a burning shame to
send a team to England and have It
beaten. One or other is bound to happen if It Is left In the hands of the
present committee, and it is up to the
Olympic committee to take the job
away from them and hand it over to
the  lacrosse  associations.
