then refuse to leave their haven of

a yearling stuck between the ties. Tho

by a large steer that mn him around

Coming Contest Between
Lords and Commons
Government Has Prepared for Dissolution and Appal to People
on Inalienable Rights.    ��
London, Feb. 11���The reassembling
of parliament on February 12th amuses
intense intesest here as the government
intends to immediately inaugurate
measures to check the power of the
house of lords and make it subordinate
to Ihe will of the people as represented
In the house of commons.
Nothing less thnn a revolution of the
present constitutional methods will
meet the case and It foreshadows tbe
bitterest contest between tbc two
houses. Thhe government has already
prepared for dissolution and an appeal
to the country upon the necessity of curtailing the powers representing aristocracy and increasing those representing
Recent councils of ministers have determined the main lines of the government's action, which is expected to begin with a resolution outlining .the
house of common's inalienable rights.
A aimlliar hiatorlc resolution was
adopted in tbe seventeenth century, upon which the rights of thc commons to
control money matters was baaed. This
will be merely preliminary to a series
of measures liy which Premier Campbell-Bannerman proposes to frame a
clear Issue against the lords and Ihen
appeal to the people upon lt. The determination to make the tight now Is
due to the defeat of the Education bill
by the npper house and the prospective
defeat of all other features of tbo existing ministerial programme.
lt ls seldom that a speech from the
throne has been awaited with such
eager Interest, as It is asserted that
the ministry has Induced tlie crown to
unke an allusion to the deadlock between the lords and the commons.
Whether King Edward ls ready to lake
such significant action Is open to doubt.
It is probable that any reference His
Majesty may make on lhe subject to
the house of lords will be couched In
moderate, uncontroversinl language,
because the speech is addressed to both
houses. The proposed government resolution challenging the powers of the
house of lords can have little efect In
Itself ns the lords' powers remain despite the resolution, but the passage of
such a resolution is destined to give the
keynote of the ministerial plans. These
will consist chiefly of sending the lords
a number of popular measures, including a drastic land bill affecting the estates of the peers and other members
of thq aristocracy.
These measures are sure to be rejected by tbe house of lords.

Windsor, Ont., Feb. 11.���Speaker
Sutherland, of the house of commons.
In nn address on the Cunndinn constitution here said: "The time is not far distant when the West will be the centre
of a Canadian empire. It Is conceivable that If Bottlers continue to pour Into the West one of these dnys the seat

Chemical Research Works Shake Country for Miles.
Woolwich, England, Feb. 11���A huge
hole In the ground ls all that merles the
chemical research department oO the
Woolwich arsenal, and tbe cordite magazine which exploded early this morning
with such force that the concussion was
felt In towns 40 miles away and) the
whole cs.i-ntryslde was thrown Into a
panic owln^; to the belief that a vkelent
earthquak- had occurred. There was
no loss oi' life but buildings for miles
around were wrecked to a greater or
less degree by the explosion.
Within a few minutes after the explosion thousands of lerrorstrlcken people, many of them half clad, thronged
toward the arsenal. There were large
holes in the walls of the neighboring
houses and on all sides shattered doors
and windows and the wrecked roofs
testified to the appalling force of the
explosive chemicals and cordite with
which the arsenal and magizine were
stocked. These buildings were practically swept away, tbe big blocks of
stone of which they were constructed
being scattered for hundreds of yards
on all sides.
Yesterday being Sunday, there was no
night shift working, hence the absence
casualties The people of Draintree, 40
miles away, were thrown into a panic
by the -shock of the explosion, while
nearby towns had windows shattered
and chimneys destroyed.. The cause of
the disaster is not known.

East Orange, N. J., Feb. 11.Hard at
work in his labratory Thomas A. Edison did not pay much attention to the
fact trat today was the 60th anniversary
0 fhls entrance into the world. The
birthday would probably bave passed
entirely unnoticed by him bad he not

a bushel or more of congratulatory messages from every part of the country.
Mr. Edison is enjoying good health,
notwithstanding the fact that recent reports have bad him suffering from
paralysis, nervous breakdown and other
dire afflictions.
New York. Feb. 11.���Thomas Edison,
the inventor, is 60 years old today.. In
an Interview yesterday he said it was
now time for him to knock off work
and play a little. "For 46 yeare I
have been making experiments with
electricity," said Mr. Edison, "but all
those years I have been turning theae
experiments over to commercial value
so fast that I have not bad a chance to
play with electricity for the fun of the
thing, just to see how much I can find
out about it but from tomorrow on I am
going to give up the commercial end of
It and work ln my labratory."
Female Sensation Seekers Barred out
of Thaw Trial by Court's Order.
No   Disclosures.
New York, Feb. 11.���The opening of
the fourth week ot tn Thaw trial today
brought a new order ot things in the
court room, and all women other than
tbe halt doaen active newspaper writers
who have followed the case since tbe
beginning, were barred by order of Jus-
tlce Fitzgerald trom the court. During
the two days of laat week when Evelyn
Neabltt Thaw was on the witness stand
many women crowded the court room,
having in some manner solved the problem of getting past the stern vlsaged
ballff at Ihe door.. Thla morning the
women stormed the portals again, but
In vain, ln the belief that young Mrs.
Thaw was again to be the central figure
ln the famous trial, the women were
anxious to be within earshot of the final
details of the interesting life narrative.
They were attired in all the gay plumage that gave the court room last week
the appearance ot some gala matinee
performance.. Their indignation knew
no bounds when the court officers repulsed them with the statement that
the courts order excluded every one except the women members of the working newspaper brigade.. Many of those
who had occupied front seats during the
last week were loathe to believe that
the order could possibly Include them
and they remained about the corridors
for a long time in the hope that there
might be some relaxation of the rule.
Tbehy were doomed to disappointment,
however, and at last reluctantly left tbe
As a result of the order barring all
women, there were several rows of
vacant seats In the court room when
Justice Fitsgerald took his place on the
bench and Harry Thaw was called to
the bar. No member ot his family was

Brazon Bargain by Which Province
May   Lose   Benefits   of
Kaien bland Sale.
(Special to The Daily Canadlan.l
Victoria, Feb. 11.���A despatch to th.)
Colonist from Ottawa says: "Notwith,
standing the fact that the British Columbia government last summer refused
to waive its reversionary rights to tlm
land of Metlakatla Indian reserve, of.
which the Orand Trunk desired to pin-
chaiie 13,619 acres, the deal has gom>
through, it being finally consummated
last month."
According to returns brought down
Saturday the Inception of the Grand
Trunk project Its promoters had serious thoughts of making Port Simpson
the terminus of its line, but in April.
1906, a formal application for Indian
landa on Digby island, Kaien island and
the Tsimphsean reserve was made. Tba
Brltlah Columbia government refused
to waive Its interest on the ground that
one of the chlet considerations which Induced the government of the province!
to recommend partially a tree grant ot
10,000 acres to the Gaanrt Trunk Pacir-
lc waa tbe belief that if the western
terminus ot the railway were located on
the land sold, the value of the provincial
government's reserves, adjacent thereto,
and ot the reversionary interest of tha
province in these Indian lands, would
be greatly enhanced and a great benefit
to the province would thereby likely
accrue. For this reason the provincial
government declined to waive Its Interests.
The conditions of the grunt as stated
tn be are as follows: Last fall the Indian department undertook to dispose
of the land aaked for by the Grand
Trunk Pacific on the express stipulation that the company would accept tho
lands without recourse against the Dominion in case of the establishment of
any claim in respect of reversionary interest in reserve by the province ot British Columbia. The Grand Trunk Pacific accepted this condition; then A.
W. Vowell, Indian agent at Victoria secured their surrender from the Indians,
tho price being 17.60 an acre. The correspondence since has had to do with
surveys of the land preparatory to the
issue of a patent.
Farmer  Drives  for   Fuel   and   Leavea
Family to Freeze.
Winnipeg,- Feb. 11.���Arthur Congdon.
a wholesaler has received word from n
merchant at Alameda, that a German
-settler's wife and five children wero
found frozen to death eight days ago in
their farm bouse, 20 miles north ot
Blenfalt. The farmer had gone Into the
village to get fuel.
There was no difficulty in securing
the fuel there, but he went to Eatevan
where he became the worse for liquor,
and on arriving home three daya later,
discovered that every member ot hla
family had perished during his absence
through being without fuel. There waa
no storm and it was simply a matter
of neglect, it Ib alleged, on the part of
the husband and father that caused the
tragedy.   The settler was a new-comer.

The phrase is euphonious and from a
philosophical standpoint is sufficiently
comprehensive both In latitude and
longitude lo embrace everything, it
was the subject of a paper read ;m tIn*
University club lasl Saturday night by
Rev, r. ji. Graham, a blghly-respoctcd
c Tgj man of iho city. IVhlle It is ini-

of Canada and patilcularlj of itritish
Columbia bave raised nn vital Issues
and secondly that tbc* press has degenerated into a condition of political and
moral turpithKir thai reflects in any
way but an agreeable one upon th*1
Journalistic profession.

concern The Ually Canadian hau consistently maintained that It is the duty
of the opposition to raise Issues..   The
government has its policy, which is well
di lined. It bas its record upon which ii
stands. |t any charge is to be laid at
uny door as to lack of issues it must
he laid at the door of the opposition.
That the country has overwhelmingly
sustained the government is sufficient
answer to any charge of un progressive*
ness or incapacity.. The final appeal is
always to the people and the people
having voiced their sentiments so vociferously in favor of the government
nothing further in its defence need be
The charge against the press is one
however which will hear discussion.
That the press has degenerated from
the lofty ethical and moral ideals which
should characterize appeals to the i>eo-
pie may in a general way readily he admitted. That it is responsible and even
b'amable for this degeneracy may also
be granted- To fix the blame upon an
individual journal is however not so
easy a task.. The journal which espouses any particular political cause 01
sei of political principles Is in the posl
tion of a special leader whose business
ii is to convince the Jury���which In thb
particular case is the public���ol the
ngbtousness of its cause . iih material
for such appeal / nol only the facts in
a given case bul li must pay some heed
to the attitude of Its political and
Journalistic opponents., A blow struck
below the belt by a political journal Is
a temptation to hit back aud unfortunately there Is a large section of thc
rtaders of the public press whose only
knowledge of the virtue of a case is
when a knock out blow is administered
It has become so much a matter of cone
ment that any fool can run a hewapapei
that the saying has passed Into a prov
fill. Itm the facts are against the contention., The most serious and stren
uous business in the world is tbe con
duct of a daily Journal. With an elee
tion at stake it may sometimes happen
lhal the bounds of propriety and sometimes the bounds of truth are over
steppe^ ,u the conduct of an appeal to
the people. That thla Is done -wilfully
and with malice aforethought is not
often to be charged.. Where the charge
cau Ijp truthfully urged the situation Is
Indeed lamentable.
We think, however, with respect to
the elections just over, that the news
papers BUpporUng the government have
been as free from venality as any In the
history of journalism in  Canada.      H
reckle dlsn gat d nl i.m g&d mt
Brtonsble publication of fiction are to bo
charged at all these must be charged
to the opposition.. We believe that the
British Columbia journals who have supported the administration of Premier
McUride have done so because they
have ha I the Interests of the provlnoe
at heart and that such considerations
as the continued welfare ol the country
have weighed more than political preferences.. At ihe same time it has been
necessary to defend the government
against a campaign of slander rarely
equalled in the political history of
In seeking to fix the blame for ethical degeneracy In the press it is necessary lo discover wbo are the originators
and perpetratoi b of falsehood and hypocrisy in political campaigns and we
sha'l maintain the opinion that Rev, Mr.
Graham should have been more explicit
in his references to the degeneracy of
the press, A few citations of the spirit
and letter criticized by the learned
rhetorician would perhaps have nailed
the blame for conditions which, as we
have said, are generally admitted.
When all is said, however, there is
room for much improvement in the conduct of political campaigns, both by the
party press and the by the campaign
orators who conduct the contest. These
Improvements will be effected only
when the public set themselves against
the wrongdoers and compel that respect
for public decency whicli is the right of
every dtlsen.
Mr, Graham's paper, owing to the
prominence it has attracted, will do
good because it calls attention to an
evil which should be easily remedied.
It is a pity that the academic nature of
the discussions of the University Club
should have so little Interest for the general public. This extended reference to
the subject is made in the hope that discissions which are really of wide Interest should be more participated in by
the general public than at presenl,

Railways     Not     Private     but     Public
The extremely cold weather which
hat* prevailed this winter in western
Canada and in the northern states has
caused considerable comment on account of the blockading of trains hy
heavy snows and th*" scarcity of fuel.
The fuel question would not have be*
come acute had it been possible to run
trains with the freedom and celerity
which has been the rule during former
Winters. There is no reason why the
experiences of this winter should be accepted as character isi ic of th country
for the season has been abnormal In
respect of cold, snowfall and wind. Hard
winters are to be expected In anj northern latitude and the fact that for several seasons past contrary conditions
have prevailed led many to forget the
truth of the old saying that an ounce of
pi event ion is worth a pound of cure.
The winter has been severe, but other
portions of the continent have exepri-
enced cold dips as well as the Canadian
West and th" northwestern states.
Down on the Atlantic seaboard for a
time unusual severity of climate prevailed, and in Quebec, according to reports, ihe thermometer sank considerably beyond the lowest reading recorded  in   Winnipeg  or  westward.
The menace of the whole situation
in the West is iho lack of fuel in many
towns and districts. This is aggravated by tlie fact that the railroads
have heen largely crippled owing to
snow blockades and the immense difficulty of relieving so many different
points in a manner that might be permanent and effective. If everyone was
well supplied with fuel the severity of
the weather would be Inconsequential-
The whole experience has an important
lesson for the people or the country
and for the railways. The fuel situation sliould lie provided for early in the
season. |n fact before the rush of wheat
traffic has been began. Such a precau*
Hon would doubtless be unnecessary In
nine oases out of ten, but the avoiding
of experiences such as the country hah
bad to face this year, even If tlie conditions occurred only lhat often, would
amply repay the taking Of forehand
measures In other nine seasons.
Thc fuel supply is a problem which
cannot be lightly treated uny more by
the people of western Canada. If Individual efforts and community efforts
cannot solve the problem H must become a question for guvernmnts.
There is fuel available and easily
available, if ir is procured in proper
Benson, LO make innocuous the severest
Winter. In every district, town or city,
where tho supply is depend nt on railway transportation concerted action is
necessary to avoid a scarcity in exceptional winters.. Such a scarcity does
needless harm to the country lo say
nothing of the privations and sufferings
of those directly affected.
Public opinion is travelling fast. In a
recent address of muTf** than ordinary
ability, Judge Gayiior of New York,
made the somewhat startling statement
thai railroads are not private roads but
public highways, and tbey cannot be
operated as though they belonged to a
private individual, but musl be operated
as though they existed for the public, as
indeed they do. If they were private
roads they could then allow one man
10 travel over them or to use them in
shipping go:ids, and they would be per*
fectly justified in refusing i��> allow
another a b I miliar privilege. Bul public
opinion lias long ago passed ihe point
where it would justify such discrimination, and now we assert openly the right
to abolish any rebates and charge uny
rates that would place "ne man or one
community at a disadvantage as compared with another. After all. the rail-
toads may make their rates Hnd arrange
their schedules, but f*_. people, even
In non-socialistic and. as some think,
conservative Canada, even bere the people claim the right to say what is a fair
passenger or freight truiff, and we seem
t_ be advancing more or less rapidly
toward what win be virtually public
ownership. In all but name, of these
great national highways., There are two
principles that should guide ua in our
advance along this line first, we must
tie;,t the railroads faith ; secondly, they
must treat us fairly; and it should be
our endear-.r to embody these principles in all legislation on these matters.

Se.hurmaii, at Cornell university, and
Morrln Hillqiilt, the Socialist, dlBCUsned
"Indlvidualliim vs. Socialism" at the
People's Forum lu lhe New Rochelle
theaire last week.
Presldenl Btiburmaa described Socialism as a drenjm aud an illusion. "Socialism is the ownership of all machinery of public production, and is only an
Ues in a man's head," said the professor, "bui which will never exist."
"No generation can lay down rules
which win in- binding upon succeeding
KtneiUiinns," he said. "The conditions
ami ihe evils of a generation must be
met hy that generation. So far as ihe
government function is concerned, I am
one of those who believe that the less
we are governed the better, but every
emergency must be met and settled according to the exigencies of the case,
and alKive ail we must see that justice
is done."
Prof. Schurman described the conception of Socialism as a voluntary combination of labor and capltul. In the
place of labor and capital he said this
Socialism would bring about co-operative companies, themselves owning the
capital aud dividing the property.
"This is a brand of Socialism," he
continued, "which would appeal lo a*!!
English-speaking peoplp. It appeals to
us thai it is based upon the old-fashioned virtues of individual industry and
individual intelligence. This experiment
has beeu tried in England and Germany,
and I understand has been successful."
Speaking of the accumulation of
wealth he said:
"A few years ago. in this country,
one could count all the men of millions
on his fingers, but now we are all familiar witli millionaires, and even with
billionaires. In the presence of so much
wealth we are apt to forget the general
prosperity. Some people are too quick
to cry that the few have been enriched
through the impoverishment of the
many. The truth is that we are all
richer and better off, because there has
been such an accumulation of wealth.
Our very rich men are a help to us so
long as they invest their money in enterprises which furnish employment for
labor. They only hurt the public when
they squander wealth. The danger that
I see is not ln swollen fortunes, but In
stolen fortunes. I want to make it clear
that a fortune, although big, Is not bad.
I want to make it clear that we would
be bettor off if our fortunes were larger.
The danger Is not in the fortunes, bul
In the way In which they are made."
Mr. Hfllquii denied that Socialism
wiis an impotent force and an Illusion.
The movement embraced 2C.000.000
"The Socialism of today," said he,
"aB understood by Socialisis waB mentioned only passingly by Dr. Schurman
when he spoke of the Socialism of Karl
Marx. That Socialism calls for the public ownership not only of public utilities,
but of all Instruments of production. It
stands for co-operative ownership and
the ownership and enjoyment of all
capital and wealth produced by labor.
'What is before us loday," said he.
"is no longer the individual worker of
a hundred years ago. Within the last
century the mode of wealth produced
has undergone a tremendous change.
Machine production, the factory system, the concentration of wealth has
brought about a routine system of
goods absolutely Independent of the
captains of Industry. Take Ihe millionaire. How did he earn his millions or
billions? Dr. Schurman will say by
his own thrift, ability or ingenuity. I
say with men like Rockefeller, and
Morgan, ability is a secondary consideration. The first consideration Is, that
they happen to control the railroads,
mines and factories. These men own
stocks in mines oue day; the next day
they sell their stocks and buy interests
in lailroad industry. The question with
me is how they are able to attain such
wonderful skill with so little experience,
The only thing that haB remained in-
dustriallstic is the individualistic appropriation of wealth. "
Not more than 5,000 or less than 100 will be sold to
any one person.

The regular monthly meeting of the
Xelson University Club was held Saturday night with a fair attendance. The
Chairman of the general and university
committees promised definite reports
from both at the March meeting, and
announced a paper for that evening by
W. .1. Haiid. which Mr. Dalrd later announced would be on the subject of
"Party Government." The paper on
"Ethics and Politics." by Hev. P, H.
Graham, proved both entertaining and
thought provoking. The author charged
that in Hritish Columbia ethics and politics arc absolutely divorced and illustrated his argument by references to
the recent political campaign. Nearly
all present took part in an animated
discussion that followed, the most Important contribution, perhaps, being
Hev. J. T. Ferguson's complaint as to
the prevalent cynicism on the subject
of political corruption.
