Subsides Considered Fair Substitute
���Laurier's "Tact, Propriety aod Dignity."
London, May 22.���At a meeting of the
Colonial Conference at which preferential trade was under discussion, Mr.
Deakln, the prime minister of the Australian commonwealth, pointed out that
the question of preferential trade had
been raiBed in the first conference ln
1S87, and that a proposal had then been
made by Mr. Hofmeyr, for creating a
defence fund by placing a duly ot about
2 per cent on all foreign imports Into
the Empire, quoting words used by Sir
Samuel Griffith, who maintained that
buying In the cheapest market Is not
the greatest consideration in tbe world;
tbat. after all.-Ussit or any other system
of fiscal policy can only be adopted as
a means to an end, the end being the
prosperity of the country to which we
An appeal to the electors of Australia
bad been issued in June, 1906, against
taxes on food, their present system being spoken of as involving taxation of
food, whereas he preferred to use -the
phrase "duty" and not a "tax." The appeal had been rejected by a majority
of three to one in the recent elections.
Their tariff was the result of mixed motives. They desired to raise revenue, to
give stimulus to local production, and
in other cases by their duties actually to
foeler produclion. Where a duty ls a
tax, he raised the questions as to who
pays the tax. All trade being based on
mutual profit, he argued that there
should be a trade ln preferences, which
should be for the benefit of all parties
concerned. Just as thc colonies studied
their own interests, so he expected that
those representing the mother country
would study the interests of their own
people. Thc result of granting preference would, he believed, be lo build up
the dominions beyond the sea. These
were the best cUBtomers of the mother
country, nnd would always be part of
the same empire and claim to be regarded from that point of view.
There was the political motive to be
kept In mind. How far was it possible
for the several units of the political
whole to assist each other? An advantage only slightly profitable to the Individual might be an enhanced advantage
lo the group of units. He dwelt upon
the Importance of keeping the Empire
together by resorting to every opportunity which could assist Its -consolidation, and urged that greater co-opera-
Hon was a necessity of the Empire's
continued existence.
He quoted the figures of J. H. Schooling, which made It clear that the totsl
Imports from foreign countries Into the
Inrgo colonial and Indian markets
showed Increasingly a higher percentage than British Imports during the
last 60 years. Taking the case of Australia during the last 20 years the Imports from foreign countries compered
with British Imports had increased from
28 per cent, ln 1881-5 to 87 per cent.
In 1901-6. This result did not arlBo
fro many serious diminution of Australian Industries, but was contemporaneous with n substantial Increase In tho
combined trade.
Great Britain had loBt a large share
of trade In manufactured goods, the loss
being partly due to the conservatlveness
of English methods, but not lo English
products being too dear, There had been
"dumping" ln Australia on tho part of
foreign countries; the case of agricultural implements sent In from tho United States was Instttncod. Protectlvo
menBtires had been taken.
An extension of the export trade of
Australia waB absolutely necessary to
enable them to bring a larger urea
under cultivation, with lncrensed population, and to open up markets for Its
produce. Without preference, he doubted If Australia could maintain Its position in British markets. It might be expectod that with a preference on wheat
their exports might be increased fourfold, and that by the holp of Its Increased export of butter nn additional
population of 40,000 might be employed,
London, Mny 22.���When Premier Laurier nnd the Canadian delegates to the
Imperial Conference came to l,ondon
they hnd already mado np their minds
that It was useless to urge the Liberal
government to change Its fiscal system
to enable Great Britain to grant preference to the colonies, as Premier Campbell-Bannerman and his followers had
Insisted that the British voters at the
last election had declared against any
such alteration.
The Canadians therefore decided to
Blroply declare their adhesion to the
previous conference and submit to the
conference a proposal for an all-BrltlBh
route from England to Australia by way
of Canada, which they believed would
give lhe colonies the advantage in the
British market for which they had asked
and enabling the British manufacturers
to compete with foreigners in the colonies without a reversal ot the policy
of free trade.
"The scheme presents many difficulties, It Is true," said one of the Canadians, "but with the support from England
and the three colonies Interested it
should be possible' to carry It out. If
the Canadian lines only had the subsidy
given by Great Britain for the New
York service they could successfully
compete with these lines running to the
United States. While neither Sir Wilfrid Laurier nor any of his colleagues
would say what Canada was willing to
pay, lt was learned from other sources
lhat the Canadian premier has suggested that the annual Canadian contribution for a 20-knot Atlantic service and
faster trains acroaa the continent be
fl, 000,000.
Sir Joseph Ward, premier of New
Zealand, has placed his colony's share
of- the subsidy at f500,000, but Alfred
Deakln, the Australian premier, has not
committed himself. With a strong element ln the Liberal party opposed to
subsidies of sny kind, lt is considered
doubtful whether the all-British scheme
will be carried out, despite the saving
of time which lt would make. It is possible, however, that Canada may, by using the Cunard subsidy as an example,
Induce the British government to assist
In Improving the Atlantic service to
London, May 22.���The Dally News, referring to tlie part taken by Premier
Deakln, Dr. Jameson and Sir William
Lyne ln "Our Domestic Controversies,"
saya: "Sir Wilfrid Laurier has behaved
with the tact, propriety and dignity expected of htm."
"Vulgar, offensive twaddle," ls the
way Robert Vernon Harcourt describes-
the humorous article ot Leacock ln the
Morning Post on the decreptit John Bull
and his lusty grown up -sons. The
Morning Post editorially says: "Lea-
cock will achieve bis purpose far better to continuing to address his audiences In a fresh, Invigorating style, self-
confident, like young Canada rather
than If he endeavoresl to force his ideas
Into a mould of old world conventionality."
Sir W. Lyne says that Premier Laurler is willing Canada should subscribe
��20,000 for the London, Halifax, Vancouver and Sidney service.
Commenting on the Jameston resolution at the conference re the establishment of a supreme court of appeal,
the Yorkshire Post says: "Let us by
all means reform ln any way that seems
desirable machinery by which the
crown exercises the right of doing justice to any subject of His Majesty who
may wish lo make a final appeal, but
parliament and colonial legislatures
should hesitate long before they weaken
this golden link of common citizenship."
The correspondent of the Birmingham
Dully Post credits Laurler with saying:
"More was uot to be expected at the
present time, and too little Importance
has heen attached to the creation of a
secretary." The correspondent says
that judging from conversation with
friends, Sir Wilfrid Ib well satisfied
with the results achieved.

Asiatic Colonies Saved
by Treaty
British Influence Prevented Invasion
oi To"gking at Time of
Fashoda Incident.
Paris, May 22.���ln order to understand the importance of the agreement
which France, according to official Information, Is concluding with Japan for
the maintenance of the status quo in
the far east, lt Is necessary to recall an
Incident which ia not generally kuown
and which occurred about ten years
ago. It will show the extent to which
the Impending entente will relieve the
French of uneasinesB with regard to
their colonies in the Orient.
At the time ot the Fashoda Imbroglio between Great Britain and
France, at the moment when the crisis
was most acute and when the question
of peace or war was trembling In the
balance, every officer In the general
staff at Toklo was summoned to his
post, ready to respond to the orders
momentarily expected for the Immediate mobilisation and embarkation of a
couple of army corps for the Invasion
of France's possessions to the south of
China. There was no such thing as an
alliance in those days between England
and Japan���not even an understanding.
But the Japanese had already then, by
means of tbelr marvellous Intelligence
department, taken the measure of the
efficacy of the support which the czar
would have been able to give to France
In the far east; and lt was considered
at Toklo that the outbreak of a war
between England and France would afford a particularly favorable opportunity for Japan, not merely to settle old
scores with France, but likewise to
secure a magnificent foothold on the
mainland and to establish her prestige
as one of the great military and naval
powers of the world.
Sir Edmund Munson, one ot the most
tactful and -brilliant servants that England has ever had ln her diplomatic
service, found means ot Inducing France
to comply with the demands of his government and withdraw from Fashoda
without delivering the ultimatum that
he carried with him to the Qua! d'Orsay.
and wMch he had been directed to present, and thus a Franco-English war,
which would have been calamitous trom
a political, and still more from an economic point of view, was narrowly avert,
ed. In consequence thereof, the order
for the mobilisation at Toklo was not
given. But before the end of the year
there wns not a foreign legation at
Toklo and Pekin, and only a few governments ln Europe, which had not become
aware of what had been Japan's Intentions with regard to France's dependencies in the far east.
France for many years past has been
ln constant fear of an invasion of her
possessions tn Tongking and ln Indochina by the Japanese. The relations
between Toklo and Paris have been
strained repeatedly In the laat two decades, sometimes almost to the breaking point, and the alliance of France
with Russia was desired quite aB much
against Japan as against Oermany. Until the recent war In Manchuria, France
depended on the naval and military
power of KusBia in furthermost Asia to
help her defend her colonial possessions
from any Japanese invasion, an Invasion
which would have coincided with a fully
organized recrudesconce of the so-called
black flag Insurrection In all the border
provinces. It was ln pursuance of this
policy that Franco In the early stnges
of the war between Japan and Hussln
furnished such an smount of assistance
to the latter, not merely moral, but also
material, especially In connection with
the Odyssey of the Baltic fleet to the
China seas, as to strain the obligations
of neutrality to their utmost limit.
It was not until her eyes were opened
by the crushing defeats sustained by
tho Russians on land and on water at
tho hnnds of tho Jnpnnese that France
realised the preclso value of Muscovite
support and the full extont of her own
danger. And lf Mr. Dulcnsse waa virtually ousted from Iho office of minister
of foreign affairs hy Premier Itouvier le
was With the object ot appeasing not
merely the German kaiser ln the Morocco controversy, but also the Japanese
who, intensely exasperated by France's
defiance of the requirements of international law, were clamoring for the execution of the long projected descent
upon Tongking.
So grave did the danger of a Japanese
Invasion or Tongking appear to the
French government Immediately after
Admiral Togo's great victory that steps
were taken to send strong naval and
military reinforcements to Indo-Cbina.
Before, however, these reinforcements
could be dispatched, the French government received from London a confidential communication of the terms of the
new treaty between England and Japan,
concluded Just then, and which altered
the situation.
True, the main feature of the treaty
is that lt commits England to the da-
fence of Japan ln the event of attack,
and Japan to the defence of England,
should any ot her Asiatic possessions
be threatened by a third power.-- But
these obligations, thus established,
carry with them the distinct understanding, even If not actually proclaimed ln so many words, that neither of the
two contracting parties should embark
upon a war with a third nation without
the consent of its ally. It means, therefore, that Japan, while her treaty of alliance with Great Britain lasts, is virtually debarred from executing, without
the consent of England, the designs
which she formally entertained with regard to the Dutch East Indies, or the
projects ascribed to her with regard to
the conquest of the Philllpine islands.

Refuses to Congratulate   Emperor on
Escape From Assassination���
Radicals Aba-ant.
St. Petersburg, May 22.���The continued absence trom the Lower House
of Parliament of the four Radical
groups during the formal announcement
of the discovery of the plot against the
life of Emperor Nicholas and the frank
refusal to congratulate the Emperor on
his escape has made a deep Impression
In court and government circles. The
Rossiya returns to the charge today tn
three editorials today characterising the
action of the Radtcala aa being open
revolutionary and ln strict harmony
with the Social Democratic congress ln
London, "thereby giving the lie to denials ot the Social Democrats that they
are planning a general strike and an
armed uprising for the coming summer,"
The Rossiya singles out for special
censure the absent priests. Father Tik-
hcal-lnsky, Brlllanto and Kolokolnlkoff,
whose expulsion from the priesthood Ib
Is declared to be Imperative. The Novoe
Vremya points out that the sitting of
the Lower House may definitely mark
the unfolding ot the Republican banners
by the Radical groups. Fifty-flve deputies bave addressed an open letter to
President Golovin calling the attention
of the Russian people to the Radical
"great act of disloyalty to them, tn thus
absenting themselves from the house."
The police have made further arrests at
Tsarsko Seloe ln connection with the
conspiracy against the Emperor and
have found among the correspondence
seized, letters from the American anarchists and Russian deserters In the
United States. Premier Stolypln, has
refused the request of the city council
of St. Petersburg to appear before the
committee on the unemployed of the
Lower House of Parliament.

DM'$ Failure Subject
Brilliant Chief .Secretary Father of
Two Abortive Mcatarti���
Opa Breach Feared.
London, May 22.���It is the opinion ot
all the London morning papers that Mr.
Blrrell's Irish bill already is dead, and
the government organs bitterly lament
seeing the two Important government
measures, the Education B1U and the
Irish Council Bill, miscarrying In Us
hands. The rejection of the measure
by the Nationalist convention in Dublin solves for the government a difficulty that was beginning to oppress the
ministers, namely, how to deal with the
overloaded programme for this session
ot parliament, but nevertheless there Is
keen disappointment felt at the discredit thus thrown upon the government, especially aa John E. Redmond,
the Nationalist leader, himself moved
the rejection ot the bill, and as the Uberal papers remark: "Thus closing the
door upon any future half-way measure
to Home Rule"
It la believed that Premier Campbell-
Bannerman will withdraw the Mil and
substitute measures dealing with evicting tenants and the Irish University
question, but nothing is likely to be settled until the cabinet meets and -discusses the situation.
The resolution offered by John Redmond at the Irish National convention
In Dublin yesterday and unanimously
adopted by the 300 Nationalists present,
was ss follows:
"We declare that lt Is utterly inadequate in Its scope and unsatisfactory in
Its details, and should be rejected by
the Irish nation, and we regard the production of auch a measure by the British government, pledged to Home Roto,
as a confirmation of the position we
have always taken that any attempt
to settle the Irish problem by half
measures would be entirely unsuccessful; and we call upon the Irish party
to oppose the bill ln tbe House of Commons and to press upon the government
with all thetr strength and power to Introduce a measure for the establishment
of a national parliament, with a responsible executive, having power over all
purely Irish affairs; and at this .crisis
in the fortunes of Ireland we Invite all
the Nationalist forces of the country to
unite In support ot our representatives
in parliament and enable them to effectively press tor the speedy and genuine
settlement of the Irish question."
Scotch Sea Captain Discovers Causa of
Abnormal Weather.
New Yorw, May 22.���Captain L. Lum-
dams ot the Anchor liner Astoria, from
Glasgow, has found a reason for the cold
weather. He aays the Gulf Stream,
whioh ordinarily haa a range between
66 and 56 degress north latitude, ls
away to the north, and he found for the
Atlantic a high baromoter with a southerly wind, which ls unusual. "I don't
say that the Gult Stream is out of its
margin," aald the captain, "but lt ls to
the northward of Its normal course.
This accounts for our winter weather
home In Scotland where we have been
having storms every other day; we don't
have the season we used to have."
When the Astoria was about 1,000
miles east of Sandy Hook on Saturday
she passed a field of 20 Icebergs.

ably beyond question, but it would be
absurd to expect at present any enthusiasm among the Boers for closer
relations ft ith the rest of the Empire.
Sir Wilfrid laurier personally is not
in much different case. He represents
an alien nationality within the Empire.
The French Canadians are loyal to
British connection for the privileges it
involves. They are also, the more enlightened among them at least, enthusiastic Canadians. Bnt they are not in
any sense Imperialists. They cling to
the fullest degree of autonomy for Canada, and in Canada to the same degree
of autonomy for Quebec.
It is that point of view and none other
that was represented at the conference
by Sir Wilfrid Laurier. He spoke not
for Canada but only for Quebec. Possibly in his ten years of power he has
come to the conclusion that Quebec is
Canada, and that the rest may be safely ignored,
The fact now confronting Canadians
is that to the people of the Motherland
and of our sister colonies the official
voice of Canada has seemed to be the
voice of an alien race, Canada speaks
still as a French colony within the Empire, and the aspirations of Hritish
Canadians have found no voice in the
council of the Empire.
The responsibility rests with the
English speaking Liberals. The remedy
is in their hands. Having sacrificed
everything else will they now sacrifice
all that as Britons they should hold
dear, for the sake of place and power?

MAY 23. 1907.
The patience and persistence of
Mayor Gillett have triumphed again
and a final and permanent agreement
has been conceded between the city
and the West Kootenay Power and
Light company.
The attainment of peace and harmony, with the jmsslbility of co-operation, when necessary, with thc big industrial corporation which is Nelson's
nearest neighbor, would be worth a considerable financial sacrifice, but fortunately none had to he made.
The long and foolish struggle between the city and the company, for
which the city is not by any means
blameless, has cost hoth sides many
thousands of dollars, and has profited
no one except, incidentally, the counsel employed by each.
The conclusion of the agreement will
make possible at once Improvements
and economies at both plants. It will
probahly open the way for a far belter service to manufacturers in the vicinity of the city, whose wants nre
greater than the city can at present
Co-operation between city and company will permit of thorough and efficient control of all the water power
available on Kootenay river at the upper Bonnington Falls, to the advantage"
of both.
Nelson wishes no harm or loss to
Rossland, but If the end of bickering:-:
should mean the transfer from Itossland to Nelson of the headquarters of
the West Kootenay Power and Light
company, the step would be heartily
welcomed . It would be an advantage
to the city to have so important an addition to its list of industrial enterprises, and an advantage to the management of the company to be located less
than a fourth of its present distance
from the scene of its operations.
To Nelson the end of the fight means
more than all this. It means the disappearance forever from the sphere of
municipal politics of a meaningless,
foolish and mischievous campaign cry,
which has been for nearly seven years
a source of division and weakness
where there should have been unity and
There is no profit now in assigning
the blame to the proper quarters, and
poetical justice will take care of itself.
The right attitude for us now is to let
bygones be bygones, and to work all together for progress aud prosperity for
tho city, remembering past divisions
only as a warning and a guide for conduct in the future.
The Conservative papers of Canada
have been rebuked and denounced by
Liberals for stating, what is the obvious
judgment of all British newspapers,
tbat the recent conference of premiers
in London was a miserable failure,
viewed in any other light than as a
social gathering. The only real result
otherwise has been the change of name,
from Colonial to Imperial Conference.
Thc eleventh hour resolution in favor
of All-British steamer routes was little
more than an expression of pious
opinion and led only to the appointment
of a committee to consider it.
British, colonial and foreign newspaper comment is unanimous In considering the results of the conference insignificant, and in ascribing such result to
the hopelessly unsympathetic attitude of
the Liberal ministry of Great Britain,
and of two  colonial   premiers.
It is not a mere coincidence that the
two colonial premiers who resisted all
efforts for closer relations are representatives of non-British peoples. Sir Wilfrid Laurler and General Botha are
aliens in blood, in speech, in thought
and in aspiraUon.
Nothing else was to be expected of
General Botha and It will not In the
slightest diminish tho respect in which
he is held throughout the Empire. He Is
the leader of a gallant race who have
lately made an heroic struggle for their
rights as they conceived them. They
hnve been treated by their conquerors
with a generosity unexampled in history.   Their loyalty to Britain is prob-
Bverjroije in Kootenay will sympathise with the people uf New Denver
and Silverton in their desire to have
the daily mail and passenger system,
which they enjoyed for so many years,
restored. The C. P. R. company has
been, and is still, one of tbe chief factors in the development and up-building
of the country. There is no doubt that
if it can be shown that a continuance
of the daily service wilt be of such material advantage to Slocan Lake towns
as to promote their growth ,the company would continue it. But it should
not be forgotten tbat such a service was
maintained by the company at a loss for
many years, and that the expectations
which led to Its inauguration have not
yet been realized. Two other features
of the case deserve comment: the just
aspirations of New Denver and Silver-
ton will not be made more easily attainable by rpijUTels between the two,
and nothing useful 1b likely to be accomplished by the holding of indignation meetings.
A meeting is to be called the evening
of Saturday, June 1st, if it is found convenient, for those wbo advocate the formation of a Canadian Club or Empire
Club. The name will be chosen and
such organization as is required wili be
perfected. The name is of little consequence. But it Is important that Nelson should have an open and non-parti-
zan organization under whose auspices
distinguished visitors can be Invited to
The standing committees of the 20,-
000 Club are now struck, and the duties
assigned to each are definite. The next
fortnight will determine the future of
the club. If anything is to be accomplished a forward policy must be evolved
at once, and each committee must do
its share. The organization is all right.
The time has come now for individual
The sympathy of the British press Is

Culgary. May 22.���Alonzo Wardell, a
member of the American Co-Opcrative
League anil official organizer of the
Farmers drain & Supply Co., Ud., with
Iieiiiliiuartem at Seattle, Washington,
passed through the city on Saturday on
his way to the Coast.
Mr. Wardell arrived here Borne few
dny�� ago, and after a short stay In town
proceeded on his wny north. His object was to look up lands with the idea
of bringing up people from Spokane and
lhe lllg Itend district, to locate here.
In conversation with nn Albertnn reporter he stated that he was very much
impressed with the remarkable quail-
lies of the Innd he had lookhd at, and
prophesied that ln a few years Canada
would have a great imputation.
"You have an excellent outlook," he
snld, "and the soil Ib marvellous. 1
speak from experience, having been a
prm-Hcal farmer in Dakota for a good
many years. I have been Bent up here
to report on the land and 1 can assure
you that my report will bo favorable.
I do not remember having seen such
good land before."
The American Co-Operative League,
of wblch Mr. Wardell Is a member, does
business on Uie famous Rochdale system of cooperation, which is recognized as the largest, most successful
and equitable business system in the
They organize banks, stores, elevators, creameries, etc., and the profits are
returned to the members ln proportion
te their patronage.
Equal ownership and one vote only
Is recognized. No iiroxlos being allowed. The capital Invested draws Interest only and does not participate in
Ihe profits of whatever concern is being operated.
Mr. Wardell expects to return to Calgary within a few weeks, and at that
time hopes to bring iu a few settlers
with him. He is confident that this will
be a very easy matter once tbe people
on the other side learn the true condition of affairs here.
He was also interested In the government telephones, and made many enquiries regarding thc same. He also
expressed gratification to learn that Uie
city had passed a bylaw to put in a municipal Bystcm In Calgary. "That Is the
best thing ever happened," he remarked.
"Public ownership is one of my principles, and from experience 1 am sure the
ratepayers will never regret thla step."

Cuba,   at   The    Hague,   Will    Protest
Against Debt Collecting by
New York, May 22���Cuba will make
her protest against debt collections by
nations a casus belli In tbe coming
International peace conference next
month, when her voice will be heard
for the first time In the councils of nations at The Hague. On the broad questions of disarmament and arbitration of
international disputes, Cuba will be
guided by thc United States. Dr. Antonio S. De Buatamante, of the chair
of International law of the University
of Havana, General Orestes Ferrara, a
Cuban lawyer and Fernando Sanchez,
the member of the Cuban peace delegation, arrived here today on the Ward
line steamer Merlda, from Havana, on
their way to ihe peace conference. They
will be Joined in Parts by Senor Don
OonzaleB de Quesada, Cuban minister
at Washington, and Senor Manuel San-
guilly of the Cuban senate, who are
also members of the Cuban peace delegation. Cuba will make her debut at
The Hague at the invitation of the Czar
of Russia, and It is upon the question
of debt collection by the powers from
the republics of South America that she
will be heard at length. General Ferrers In outlining Cuba's position before
The Hague said today:
"On the very large questions that will
come up before the peace conference,
Cuba,.of course, will play no important
part. As a republic we are under the
control of the Uuited States and any
question which arises in the Hague
which affects this country will be considered affecting us also, and upon these
questions our Interests He with the
United States. Cuba favors giving the
commission of arbitration at the Hague
more authority, and will urge that all
international differences and disputes
be submitted to arbitration. Cuba Is
ever for peace among nations.
"Naturally Cuba views with much
pleasure all moves towards disarmament, but on that question we can say
little at the Hague, for that must be left
to the large powera.
"The question of powers forcing debt
collection on the minor republics of
Central and South America will be
taken up by our representatives at the
Hague. It ls the position of Cuba that
debt collection should be a -casus belli,
and that the powers should not seek to
make debt collections by tbe display of
naval force. Debt collections should be
a matter of civil court.
"On the question affecting the forms
of war our representatives will he found
with all nations, which today are united
ln every effort to reduce the horrors of
The Cuban peace conference delegates will meet In Parte at the Hotel
Continental, on June 2nd, when the
plans and position of Cuba before the
Hague will be carefully outlined and
agreed upon. Dr. De Buatamante and
General Ferrara and Senor Sanchez, the
secretary of the Cuban peace delegation,
sail for Europe on the Krnn Print
Wllhelm next Tuesday.
