It ls believed that Russia's more resolute stand against Japans request lor
irade aud colonl_aiion rights ou tne
Amur river and iu Siberia and for
the fishery privileges ou tbe adjacent
Kussian coasts is' partly due to tne
discussion of tbe California school
question between the United States
and Japan. The Kussian foreign otnee
bas been subjected to a steady diplomatic pressure on the part of Japan
in the latter's efforts to ogtain these
far-reaching rights, aud has been impressed by this as well as by Japan s
llrniness. Tlie result is that the idea
haa been created at the Kussian foreign office that Japan might make her
ambitions the occasion for renewal ot
tbe war with Russia. This idea per-
vadsis the conversations which the
foreign minister, ... lswolsky. had
wllh the governmenl officials whom he
met here on the occasion of his visit
to Berlin six weeks ago.

Uneventful Night   With   Two    Teams
Dropped From Contest.
sN'ew York, Dec. 16.���There was no
change during the night ln the position of the racers in the bicycle contest at Madison Square Uarden. Tbe
men did their work mechanically,
seeming for the most part to be content with holding their places in the
race. A few sprints were attempted
but they did uot laat long aud were
without reBUlt. The men were averaging about 15 miles au hour early to-
day and they were couteut lo follow
this pace.
The lack of maintained sp^ed in the
race and that the usual delays have occurred Is indicated hy the fact that
the racers were nearly 300 miles behind the record early loday. Ten
teams remain In the race and all win
probably finish. Vanderstuyrt and
Stole and (ialvln and Wiley dropped
out of the contest late last night. Both
teams had loBt several laps to the
other riders and as there was no hope
ol making this up again the men dropped opt.

Bankhead and Shaft of    Nova    Scotia
Coal Mine in Flames.
Glace Bay, N. 8., Dec. 15.���Fire
raged ruriously in the shaftings of the
colliery of the Dominion Coal company
and it was necessary to flood the place
for hours before tbe fire was subdued
even on the surface. The bankhead,
fan and boiler in the engine room were
destroyed. The Interior of the mine is
still a seething volcano and out of the
shaft a column of flame is towering
high in the air. Tbe scene resembles
a volcanic eruption, lt is impossible
to approach lt closely. The pump
room, where tbe fire started, is just
at the bottom ot the shaft, 120 feet
from the surface.
Tbe mouth of the pit had been
boarded up and the officials thought
the blaze was fairly well under control, when suddenly the boards over
the piimomh caved in and flames shot
high Into the air again. Instantly tne
bankhead was ablase and the flames
quickly spread to the boiler room and
engine house, but by hard work tne
other buildings were saved. Up to
ih.s hour nothing is decided as to
win ib. r the pit will be flooded or not.

mines near Slocan, ls at Ottawa in the
interests of the slue mine owners,
trying to secure assistance, by bounty
or otherwise, to develop the zinc resources of the province, has written

years was made available for lead

Appeal Against Assess-
Judgment of R. S. Lennie Confirms
Assessors' Contention���Interest of the Districts.
Harold    Nelson's   Company   Stronger
Than on  Former Visits.
Owing probably to the number ot
theatrical and musical attractions that
bave been olTcrod ln Nelson lately lt
was a poor house that greeted the Harold Nelson company last night for the
presentation of "Arizona."
The performance was all tbat could
be desired. Tlle company Is undoubt
edly stronger all round at present (ban
it has ever heen before. Mr. Nelson,,
on his first cnirnnce received an ovation. His rendering oi Lieutenaul
Denton, the chivalrous young cavalry
officer, was limitless. George Dayton
as the blackguard, Captain Hodginau,
Jackson Rlgby, as tbe kindly old martinet colonel, Victor Travers as thu
good-natured cynical doctor, William
Yule as the rancher, were all consistently good.
But the most noticeable Improvement of the company la lu the acting
of the ladles. Miss Pearl Reesor ub
the young wife of the old colonel,
tempted by the villain for her Jewels'
sake, waB so good that ono mlghl easily have forgotten that she was acting.
Miss Dorothy Thomas as Bontta; Miss
lloo.lruni. Miss Francis and Miss Thayer, all gave highly creditable characterisations.
The company is producing "A Soldier of Fortune" this afternoon, and
'"lho Prisoner of Zenda" tonight.
On lis present tour the company has
been several times In straits owing to
Illness of members, hut all are now recovered.
The railway companies' appeal from
the assessment of their properties lor
Bchool purposes under the provisions
of tlle School Act of 190S hss beeu
practically dismissed.
The provincial assessor of the district assesa-d their rights of way,
uacks and Improvements "on the same
oasis aB other real estate ln the neign
borhood," as directed by the act.
Three companies, the Nelson tt Fort
Sheppard, Nelson and lledliugton, and
B. C. Southern, appealed to R. S. Lennie, judge of tbe assessment revision
court. They contended generally that
the land was not Improved within the
meaning ot tbe act, and should be assessed at a nominal figure. The B. C.
Southern also pleaded special statutory
Mr. Lennie has handed down his
judgment, substantially confirming the
assessment with slight modifications.
He thought the fairest assessment
would be of the proportion lying within each school district of the -whole
value of each railway system concerned, but admitted such a course to be
Impossible for a district assessor.
The acreage assessable to each company is: N. & F. S. Co., 367 acres; N.
M. U. C. Co., 140 acres: B. C. Southern.
105 acres. For the four school districts affected the acreage is: Hume,
39 acres; Ymir, 191 acres; Salmo, ids
acres; Creston, 284 acres.
The assessments as fixed by the revision court are: N. A F. S., $104,-
221.45; N. ft 11., 177.604.19; B. C.
Southern, $87,115.23. Ae allotted to
the school districts tbey are: Hume,
$19,782.53; Tmir, $50,200.56; Salmo.
$45,033.61; Creston. $153,884.19.
Mr. Lennie refused to consider the
claim ot the B. C. Southern Co. to exemption, intimating that lt should oe
decided by another court.

while this year's reports are uot all
ln (he total will exceed 70.00(1, practically all trom Alberta. As a result of

The publication of -a dallj newspaper
is in some respects a public responsibility ami transcends the scope ot a
business proposition. In dealing with
matters of public Interest, -some regard
must he paid to thc Intelligence ol tbe
readers under whusi i-ws thr printed
page must lull. Mere assertion has
long since ceased to huve any convincing weight with discriminating readers, especially when Indulged In by
such Journals as have an established
reputation tor recklessness and unpardonable disregard for Facts, it Is the
recognised function of political jour
mils to attack or defend tbe records
ui the government in power, bul there
are well defined lines between which
such discussion must ii-* carried on.
The public care no more tor a debali
between newspapers than they do ior
a quarrel between Individuals, unless
ihe subject mailer oi the debate be ol
public concern. Men* sophistries are
p weariness to the flesh and in these
strenuous times unless the busy pen-
pi'1 wlio scan the pases of lhe pr ss
can find that which appeals to them
a^ or importance they will pass It over
or dump It quickly Into the.waste basket of iheir minds,
Kor   some   days   the   mottling   organ
has   been   regaling    its     readers  with
what purports to be a criticism of the
records of The government ot ihe province, and H must bo admitted lhal no
slone has been left unturned in Its
gallant attempt to make good its case.
it has been guilty oi witticisms, plagiarisms and -solecisms; it has perpetrated fictions, fabrications and falsehoods;  but it has evolved nothing new
and il leaves us to infer that even in
Lhe criticisms of the government's record���upon which it says the opposition
relies for Us case��� Us bill ot fare consists of nothing more than a rehash ol
the oft-exploded charges of its moribund party.
The Dally Canadian, during the past
ten days has openly charged the morning paper with gross misstatement oi
fact, of Ignorant and puerile discussion
of current issues and with wilfully uttering charges which there is not a
scintilla ol evidence to substantiate,
This paper has called on the Daily
News specifically to make good Us several allegations and to furnish the
proofs which a respectable journal Is
always supposed to have at hand before It utters defamatory statements.
The News has made no attempt to justify its devious course. It stands con-
victed of uttering untruths and it has
neither lhe decency to admit error nor
to retract manifestly unprincipled utterances. When it chooses to reiterate
exploded fables ami repeat misleading
statements, asking the people to accept
these as arguments, it simply writes
Itself down bankrupt of Issues, Insolvent politically, Intellectually embarrassed, wiih no other Justification for
its course than Hint ii has undertaken
ihe impossible task of attempting to
divert attention from the hopelessly indigent condition of Its political mas-
leis. It has frankly admitted that its
political   leaders have   uo   Issues  upon
which to touch the susceptibilities oi
iiie thoughtful and well Informed electorate, ami further, thai there aro no
men al the limit in the Liberal ranks
who are capable of rising to lhe crisis
which Is upon the opposition. Whut
11 would now give to recall tun confession does not concern this pat* i,
i ut a discriminating pu illo will noi
fail to perceive that its frantic efforts
to divert alt enlion from this condition
of affairs by the columns of puerile an-
iamdversion with which its editorial
pages have been tilled have fallen lar
short of thetr purpose. There arc so
few men left in the Uberal ranks who
are susoeptible to the methods of political blandishment adopted by the
morning paper that little attention
need be paid Ihem.
The Daily Canadian might assert
ihat Mr. .1. A. Macdonald is a rogue,
that  Mr.  John  Oliver Is a freak,-and
that Dr. King, the newly-rison star or
the Simiikameen. is a monstrosity, but
none of thes,�� assertions would carry
weight with a politically honest electorate. They would ask for the proofs,
and rightly so.
We do not. therefore, feci called upon to further follow the sinuous course
of the errant morning organ. There
are matters of public interest to be discussed, and we would fain pass to
these. The Dominion parliament Is in
session and the tariff is being revised,
the appropriations are being made, ami
we [defer to watch how deftly Sir Wilfrid and his colleagues cau override
the rights ol this province and ignore
the petitions of those who are praying for "justice at the doors of the
house. We prefer to study the fresh
revelations of graft and favoritism in
the land department that will surely
be forthcoming. We prefer to search
for further light on the methods oi
oilier features of the Liberal adminis-
tiation which have made the reign ot
Laurieiism fragrant with odors the
contradiction of sanctity. We prefer
to follow these aud with ample proor
ol name aud date and place and circumstance, to avail our readers of the
information available to ourselves,
ainl then, when all is done, to ask them
If they are anxious that the same system which obtains al Ottawa, in New
Brunswick, in Nova Scotia, In Quebec,
in Ontario, in Alberta and in Saskatch-
wan, should be Imported into this
Western province, where not even the
morning organ has the courage or the
financial backing to accuse any member pf the local government of graft.
Every material, and, when appreciable, every immaterial substance, has
a double value to science, its chiet
value, as men reckon things, lies in its
practical utility or the facility with
which it may, as raw niaaerial of nature, be transformed Into something
which serves the ends and increases
the conveniences or comforts oi mankind. It is the weakness ot the materialist that his estimate of new discoveries is always circumscribed by
this consideration. On the other hand,
most, U uot all, new discoveries have
a secondary value which in its importance as a basis for deduction and inference, and as affording a clue to further discoveries, far surpasses any
merely temporary advantage that may
accrue to society.
Thus, the discovery of radium by
Curie was at first hailed with delight
as a bubstance possessing potential
energy which, when developed to a
sufficient degree, promised amazing
revolutions In the practical affairs ot
mankind. That these promises or predictions have not been realized is by
no means a discouraging feature in
the the case, as the substance is yet
unfamiliar and far from plentiful, bin
In respect to its secondary value
radium has changed the thought of the
whole scientific world ami most of the
former calculations upon the stability
and persistence of the material universe are already being revised.
In a recent inaugural address lo the
Itritish association, Dr. E. Ray Lancaster, one of tho foremost modern scientists, crowned the discovery of radium
as the supreme achievement, a, revelation so notable as ;_> make us fortunate to live In a time when this marvellous new element is being first
studied. The facts already learned, he
said, indicate the possibility that
neither the earth nor the sun Is in the
rapid process of cooling that has been
Even a very small quantity of radium, tr lt were diffused throughout the
earth, would offset the loss of heal
through radiation, and a fraction of 1
per cent, in the composition of Ihe sun
would make up for all the heat thrown
off. These tremendous facts, he pointed out, upset all the calculations that
have been made about the probable duration of the sun's heat and of lhe past
geologic epoOhe of the earth. There Is
now, therefore, good reason to helieve
that the human race has before it n
future of Infinite development Instead
of being doomed to extinction in the
absolute cold and outer darkness
which, as was supposed until recently, must necessarily fall upon the earth
after a few thousand years. It Is a
considerable comfort to our racial, lr
not to our Individual, instincts to he
assured that man will not be cut oti
prematurely In his development, but
that he will have eons of time In which
to attain nearer to that state of perfection of which the idealists of civilization have ever dreamed.
The hypothesis that the earth Is rap-
Idly cooling and that the tremendous
radiation of heat from the sun's body
must at the end of a few thousands or
years result In the imjiosslblllty ol an-
Imal life on the earth has been the
basis of many scientific dogmas during
recent years and entire physiological
and biological systems have been fancifully built up   on   this   hypothesis,
with results that have been disquieting If not damaging In their effect
The issues of this new scientific die-
turn will be marked in a lew years, and
whole systems of thought will undergo
radical changes. Theological systems
will uot take on any new lease ol lite,
but wil! he adapted io lbe changed
physical conceptions and the wheels or
progress In the realms of thought will
revolve again with fresh stimulus to
idealism and fresh substance for tin-
faith of those who believe in the ultimate triumph ot good.
A careful perusal of the published
minutes of the conferences of provincial premiers substantiates everything
that Premier McBride has said since
the convention and confirms the general belief that lu- acted wisely in retiring from the discussion when he
did. Sir Wilfrid Lauriers attempted
diplomacy would have surprised many
another man into a betrayal of the
rights of British Columbia. No so Mr.
Alcitrfde. Let there be more light on
Laurler's dark conspiracy, that each
man may stand iu his proper (dace.
Only now is tlie real conflict between church und stale about to begin
in France, The apparent indisposition
of a large majority of the religious associates to conform to the reasonable
law of the republic will force the government against its will to enact more
drastic measures The cry of prosecution and martyrdom will follow, but
the church will not ftgain imniortalize
itself hy the same resistance unto

The following item of local news appeared in a paper published in Hritish

It would appear now that the real
reason for the defeat of the Conservative candidate in Eiisi Hamilton was
his pronounced opposition to a temperance movement in Hie mountain
city over a year ago. Public meu in
Ontario can no longer play fast nnd
loose, but particularly loose, with temperance sentiment, studhoim's views
are not known and ft was for him simply a case of golden silence, in fact,
"majestic silence."

of the opposition. Perhaps it is a
