Powers   to   Take   Action.
London, April 1 ��� A parliamentary
paper w-us Issued describing the latest
phases of the efforts by the llritish
government to deal with the Macedonian
problem. It showed that the powers,
having unanimously rejected the llritish proposal! of last December for Increasing the efllciency of gendarmerie
und reducing the strength of the Turkish forces * on the ground that the
Porte would never consent thereto, Sir
Kdward lirey on March 2 sent another
cliciilur   to   the   powers   insisting   upon
the gravity of the situation if matters
were permitted to drift.
He proposed lu this circular the appointment of tt Turkish governor general, together with other reforms already indiculed in these despatches,
and expressed the conviction that united pressure ol the powers would ensure Turkey's acceptance of the terms,
while   failur   do   act   together   ln   this
matter would  be a virtual  admission
on   the   part   of   the   powers   that   tin1
Buropean concert as an instrument or

Winnipeg   Delegates   Present   Caae   for
Representation  on   Enlarged
Railway Board.
Winnipeg, April Ls���-H. W. Hutchinson and T. R. Deacon, who have been
in Ottawa for the past ten days conferring with the minister ot railways
regarding the appointment of western
men to the railway commission, have
returned. Mr. Itulchlnson was the appointed representative of the Winnipeg board of trade, and Mr. Deacon acted as delegate of the Shippers' and Jobbers' union.
The appointment of one or more western men on the railway commission
has been a matter which has been before the attention of western business
men for some tiuie. In cases of emergency, such as occurred during, the
winter of 1907, this necessity was particularly felt, aud the final result was
the decision of the local board of trade
and the Shippers' and Jobbers' union
to appoint delegates to meet the government, officials and see what could be
doue iu the matter. Mr. Deacon and
Mr. Hutchinson laid the matter before
the minister of railways, pointing out
the needs of the west and the benellts
that must result from having on the
commission men of the west thoroughly conversant with western conditions.
It was particularly pointed out that the
weBtern provinces were entitled to this
In view of the fact that the number
of members of the commission was being increased.. No recommendations of
any particular appointments were
mudo, the chief mutter of Importance
having been pointed out to be thut
some representative or representatives
of the west have a place on the hoard.
Both the representatives had the support of all the members from the western provinces who had also Indicated
to the minister how the interests of
the west could be furthered and better
supervised in case of an appointment
such us was asked was made. As u result It Is probable (hat when lhe new
members to the commission ure being
appointed that representation will he
given as was pressed for by Mr. Hutch
Insott and Mr. Deacon. While no definite promise was made us tn what steps
would he taken, II was admitted lhat
the request was one which should have
consideration und one which would occupy the attention of the government
when the appointments to the commission   were   being   made.

Few Who Know Anything
Of Kootenay's Wealth
In view of the meeting which is to
be held tonight to rei rgaoise and establish tue Nelson f-unliciiy Bureau,
ihe experience ot ; Nelsuu man ln Winnipeg may be ins -motive as to tbe
value and the necessity for such work.
E. K. Beeston returned last night
from Winnipeg which he bas jusi 'sited for the first time in nve years. He
says Winnipeg has grown more tn the
last seven years than in the preceding
21 years during which be resided there.
But what struck Mr. Beeston most as
a sitizen of Nelson was thai among the
representative business men ot Winnipeg the name of Uie Kootenay metropolis Is only a name. Tbey know 11 as a
point on Uie map but snow pausing
about the sauracuons of tne uny or the
wealth of the diauioi. uaanagan is
far better known.
If that be still true alter the heroic
efforts that have been made to adver
tise "Glorious Kootenay," the amount
that remains to be done will requiie
the united efforts ot all Nelson's workers.
The latest suggestion ln connection
with the bureau is that ll be made a
department of the board of trade, tln-
nanced separately. If necessary, but
with the authority and weight of the

Alberta. Mr. Slse said that Minister of

true," said Mr. Slse, "that Mr. Cushlng
has been negotiating with the company

Wednesday,   April   1,   1908.
Sir Wilfrid Laurler is reported to
have told a. Montreal delegation that
there need he uo hurry about the legislation they asked lor as the present
parliament lias still it months to live.
'J'he statement may huve no significance at all. Every one knows that the
life of parliament may extend for live
full years from the dale of the receipt
ut Ottawa of the official returns from
the last election. As iu l'juf the deferred electious lu Kooteuay aud Vale-
Cariboo were held in December it is
likely  that    the    full period    will    not
eiupBu uuiii early in January, mio.
But It is extremely unlikely that the
government will take the risk of postponing a decision to the last moment
Guessing at the dato of elections ls un-
prolltable, but discussions of reasons
tor deferring them may not be.
rilnce Confederation only two parliaments have lived beyond the period of
four years, and only one has lasted to
the full statutory limit. Sir John Mac
donald held that when new issues had
arisen that were not before the people
at the preceding elections an appeal
for a renewal of confidence was eminently proper as a means for an expression of the opinion of the electorate on
such IMUI s.
It may at once he conceded thai there
is nt present no Issue requiring such un
upiieal, at least there would not be If
l.ibi r.-il p.-ofesslon and practice were
anywhere nearly related.
Tbe reason why the electorate should
be consulted at a very early date is of
another kind even more cogent. Since
the general election of 1904 the changes in the cabinet amount to a transformation. In less Ulan three and a half
years three ministers have retired under a cloud and two more have to go.
In the case of a party which has abandoned all the principles It once contended for, the personnel is everything.
\\ here there is no constiiutioual issue
involved the decision of the electorate
mu.il be taken on the character and
administrative capacity of the leaders.
The present cabinet is not the one to
which Uie people of Canada gave a renewal of confidence iu November, 1904.
Sir Wilfrid Laurler is well aware of
this, lie knows that Uie disgrace of his
ministers one by oue, the revelations of
dishonesty iu different departments, iu
spite of desperate and otiuageous ef-
(ort to prevent Inquiry, and lhe recent
r. fusa. to dispense with the opportunity lor favoritism in purchasing, have
shaken public coulldence iu his leadership.
The premier administers no depart
ment and frames no policy, lie could
tuke a year's vacation and the work
of every department would go on as It
does now. It Is a loug time since there
has been uny occasion for a cabinet
council except for the purpose of considering appointment*. The only way
In which the premier Influences the administration is in his choice of ool-
leagues. The country has a right to
look to him to place clean and capable
men at the heud of Its affairs, and to
Judge him by the wisdom or unwisdom
of his choice.
He must realize that his present cabinet   does   not   command   public   confl-

dence, and that sweeping changes must
he made before he can hope for a favorable judgment from the country. His
discredited ministers must go. Some
worn out relics of the McKenzle epoch
must be replaced by live men, and the
average of ability in the cabinet must
be raised at least a hundred per cent.
To do this would require time even If
he had abundant satisfactory material.
If the premier's suggested delay in giving the country the opportunity it expects is for the purpose of trying to
clranse and strengthen the cabinet and
the departments, he is entitled to it.
Hut unless some sign of such intention
becomes apparent very soon, the Inevitable conclusion will be that he is
bowing himself to the Machine and allowing his followers to draw their indemnity, and as one of them frankly
expressed it, "to enjoy the patronage
of the  government," to the  last gasp."
Whitney Government   Plans High School
for  Each   District.
Toronto, April 1.���Three measures
have been introduced by Hon. Dr. Pyne,
tht- minister of education. They are entitled bills "to amend the department
of education act," and "respecting separate schools, fifth book classes and
continuation schools." They embody an
extension of the government's policy
in respect to the public schools. The
amendments provide for tlie reorganization of continuation classes, in accordance with the policy endorsed at a
conference between trustees and iiv
spectors during the 1907 meeting of the
Ontario Educational association. In future there will be continuation schools
and fifth classes, a distinction being
drawn between two grades of what
were hitherto termed indiscriminately
continuation classes. The continuation
schools (a name applied In England,
Germany and elsewhere to work of similar character) will impart instruction in

Reciprocal    Arrangements    for    Return
Atlantic Passage.
Montreal, April 1.���All the Canadian
steamship lines have decided to enter
an agreement between the American
and Canadian steamship lines running
to Europe for Interchange ot return
tickets. Under the new arrangements,
a passenger can buy his ticket to
Kurope from Montreal, Halifax, or St.
John, and arrange to return on any
boat of any other Canadian or American line he pleases. But to counteract
this privilege there w.ill be no more reduced rates for round trips, the return
Journey costing Just as much as the
single-way   trip.
This change was discussed at the recent meeting of the Atlantic lines in
Liverpool, at which the rate war was
ended, but as the Canadian and olher
lines did not go into It, It was not put
into effect. A couple of days ago the
Dominion and Leyland lines agreed to
Join the arrangement, and this afternoon the C. P. R. line did the same,
while the Allans Immediately followed
suit, making the circle complete.
Under this arrangement, the only advantage of buying a return ticket is the
certainty of getting a berth at the time
required by the passenger, with the additional privilege of having the choice
of practically every passenger boat plying on the Atlantic ferries.

Moving to  Calgary.
R. H. Zavltz, district manager for the
Allis-Chalmers-Bullock company, who Is
ln town for a few days, states that the
Nelso agency of the company Is to be
transferred to Calgary. The three
agencies now In Western Canada are at
Winnipeg, Nelson and Vancouver, and
ll ls thought that Calgary will be found
more central for the Intervening country than Nelson Southern Alberta,
Kootenay, Boundary and Slmllkamcen
will then be covered by a travelling
representative. It ls no longer necessary for the company to have a warehouse ln Nelson as it ls now out of the
drill business. Mr. Zavltz says the decision to remove does not Imply any
distrust of the future of Nelson and
Kootenay, but merely that the distance
ls too great between NelBon and Winnipeg, and Calgary's situation is more
convenient for the company's purpose.
