early today on the dimly lighied ocean

man is dead ami two others are fatally
injured. The dead man. Thomas F.
Donovan, of New York, was Impaled on
the spokes of his own machine. The
injured are Chapman Hopes, of Moore-

Donovan waws trying to make a speed
record with his machine, which carried
no lights, running along at CO miles un
hour. Donovan determined to take the
other side of the road. He did not see
Chapman Hopes, driving a powerful machine, approaching In an opposite direction and running at 40 miles an hour.
The two machines were upon one another before their drivers realized what
had happened. With ft fearful crash the
machines collided and were reduced to
scrap Iron. Donovan was thrown from
his machine and the s|>okcs of a broken
wheel pierced his breast. Hopes and
his companion wwere found beneath the
wreckage. Donovan died iu tha his-
pital and physicians say lhat the two
wounded men will probably die. A third
auto, which came Hying nlong the avenue 1 in media'ely after the accident,
nearly  collided   with   the  wreckage.

JttdgV Wood has asked counsel to present views as to certain evidence hear-

various towns in Cripple Creek district
of Colorado In deport Ins strililiiK* miners
who refused to work and those who
took part In preventing the nonunion
miners from iicceptliiR employment In
the .nines. The defence probably will
light hard to keep this evidence in the
record as it makes a considerable part
of ihelr claim that conspiracy oxluti d
between the mine owners and the ['Ink
urtoiiH to annihilate the Western Federation of Miners. Another point on
which the court hat asked counsel to
present nrKi.ment Is that iiorlion of the

BALLOT THIEVES
What Laurier Will Have
to Investigate
MACHINE'S SPECIALISTS
Criminals Helped Out of Country to
Escape Trial by Money From
Liberal Party Fund.
Ottawa, July A.���After the formal receptions to Sir Wilfrid laurler are over
his first task will be the filling of cabinet vacancies. One vacancy Inevitably
suggests the London election trial
which has been so often postponed. It
la generally conceded that the premier
must face the task of convicting and
punishing the corruptloniats, a task he
has so long shirked in Bplte of earnest
protests   from   the  opposition.
Last session but one, Mr. Borden,
took up the mutter at the first Btage
possible and moved another reference
to the committee. Meanwhile he had
obtained a confession of J. G. Prltchett,
who hud instructed the deputy returning officers of Hrockvtlle and Huron in
the ballot switching art. This affidavit
was read in the House. Here was Sir
Wilfrid's opportunity to bring a group of
ballot switchers to Justice. The premier
rose magnificently to the occasion by
calling upon the majority of the House
to vote down Mr. liordeu's motion, thus
burking the Inquiry altogether. Sir
Wilfrid promised to appoint a commission to investigate the whole matter,
l-ut no Inquiry ever took place and no
further exposure was then accomplished
and no one wus punished. The members for whom the Beats were stolen
remained in possession.
liui tho yeurs have brought exiHjsures
in unother way. Lust autumn James
Farr returned from exile and made a
sworn declaration of his share in the
West Huron ballot switching enterprise.
The following are the esaentlul por-
tlona of his confession.
I, James Farr, of the town of God-
erich, in the county of Huron, and province of Ontario, carpenter, make oath
and Bay as follows:
1. That 1 was deputy returning officer at polling subdivision number three
In tho said town of Goderich at the
election held between Robert Holmes
nnd Robert Mil..an on February 21,
1SU9. for the west riding of the county
or Huron.
2. That I had been deputy returning
oflloor In former elections ut the said
pulling subdivision.
8. That on the duy preceding the
election ono, James Yates, division court
clerk lor Goderich town, came to ray
house anil asked for the ballot box aud
papers and ballots which I hud received
from the returning officer. He wished
mo to resign my poBttlon In his favor
iiiiiI askud me to do bo. 1 concluded
that it was concluded that I could not
manipulate the false ballots as It wus
Intended 1 should. W. L. Ilorton. of
Goderich town, had previously asked
111*' to resign.
4. Alter the said James Yntes hud
interviewed me and left my houae after
I hud refuaed to grunt Ihlsrequesl.l went
down to the neighborhood of John Mur-
lln's hotel und I there met tbe said W. L.
Horton, who ugiiin requei"tod .no to resign lu favor of James Yates, which 1
refused to do.
fi. After the lust mentioned refusal
to give up my ballot hox and papers,
the said W. L. Horton asked me to go
with him lo Craig's hotel In Qodertch
town, which I did. Hoth the said Horton and I went upstairs in Crnig'B hotel
together and I wiib then Introduced to u
man by the iiuniu of tlanett and also to
a man mimed O'Oormun. Theae two
latter persona were introduced to me
by tho Bald W. L. Horton.
��. After 1 had heen Introduced by
the said Horton to the snld Gnrrott and
OOormnn, the said Horton nnd O'Gor-
man left tho room und Garrett and I remained nlone.
7. The said Garrett then Instructed
mo to switch ballots and I practised
Ihe method or doing so with him for a
short while.
8. Tho said Garrett gave mo thirteen
ballots mnrkod for Robert Holmes, and
I placed them In my pockot. However,
beforo doing so, the snld Garrott placed
my Initials on all the thirteen bnllots.
These ballots had no counterfoils.
0. The Biild Garrett's Instructions lo
me aa lo tho method of switching was
ns follows:
1 waa told to keep theso thirteen
bogua marked ballots In my pocket- so
that. 1 could readily have accesB to
them, nnd 1 was fimher Instructed to
alwnys put Die .oimterfolla In my pocket
so thut I could tnke out a bogus ballot
when 1 desired to do ao. without raising
suspicion.    When a person came in  to
vote, whose hallot I desired to
switch, I would take from my
pocket a bogus ballot, which the said
Garrett had provided me with and
would keep this ballot hidden under my
left hand which would be resting on the
table. When the voter would tender to
me hlB ballot paper with the counterfoil pro|.erly attached thereto, I would
place this good ballot under the left
hand fingers as if for the purpose of
tearing off the counterfoil and with a
sudden movement of the right hand the
genuine ballot and counterfoil would be
quickly removed together and placed in
my pocket and the bogus ballot marked
for Robert Holme* would be quickly
deposited in the ballot box.
10. During tbe hours of polling on
said election day, 1 was present in the
polling booth as deputy returning officer and succeeded in switching the
thirteen ballots which Garrett had given
n.e, marked tor Robert Holmes, and
placed in my pocket thirteen ballots
marked by voters for Robert McLean,
Instead of depositing the last mentioned
ballots in the ballot box.
11. About April 10, 1899, after the
aald election, I went to Toronto city and
worked there in the employ of the W.
D. Thompson company until July 12 of
the same year.
12. Just prior to quitting the employ
of the said W. D. Thompson company,
James Vance, the Liberal organizer,
came to see me at my boarding house
on Church street, in the city of Toronto,
and there interviewed me as to my going to the city of Ottawa to give evidence before the committee on privileges and elections aa to the West Huron
election inquiry.
13. I know that certain parties were
attempting to serve me with a subpoena
Issued by the said committee to give
evidence before them, but I did not attend, having for a considerable length
of time, evaded service.
14. The said James Vance provided
me with a single ticket for Hamilton,
North Dakota, United States of America, which was the place I told the said
Vance I wished to go to. If 1 left the
country. He, the niil Vance, also gave
me some money, but I have forgotten
the exact amount.
(Sgd.j       JAMES   FARR.
Sworn before me in the city of Toronto, In the county of York, this 8th
day of December, 190G, after the same
had been read over to the said deponent
and explained to him and t-ead by him.
(Sgd.)     ARTHUR   D.   GEORGE.
A notary public tn and for the province
of Ontario.
The man Garrett mentioned by Furr
in paragraph 5, and in subsequent
clauses, wus J. G. Prltchett who seems
to have been Introduced to the returning officer under a false name. Prltchett
himself in the confession read by Mr.
llorden gave an account of the ballot
switching operation which agreed with
that of James Furr. Prltchett has since
given testimony In tbe Toronto police
court in the London conspiracy case
and his 44ta.te.ment covers not only West
Huron but llrocKviiio, w��.t Elgin, South
Ontario, North Grey, Hastings and otlter
ridings in which similar operations were
carried on. Prltchett explains three different methods of switching. Here is
one of them:
A. I think I can explain the thing.
I am acting as deputy returning officer
and two gentlemen aid running of
course, one a Conservative and one a
Liberal, and It I am working In the
Interests of a Liberal, why 1 empty the
ballots out; we see they ure all Initialled
and then I drop the ballots Into the box
and If it Ib for Mr. Denlson, I call out
somebody else.
Prltchett acted as returning officer
under a fnlso name In one of West
Elgin polls where by this simple method
he changed the Conservative majority
of 11 to a government majority of 27.
Here Is his own statement of the case:
Q. And you did this In the West
Elgin  election  yourself?    A.    Yes.
Q. With the Conservative scrutineer
watching you? A. They were there to
watch me.
Q. They know about you? A. I
don't know.
Q. You switched how many? A. I
think twenty-seven. I think it wai
twenty-Beven difference.
Q. You switched twenty-seven. That
would be. I suppose. twenty-Beven of a
difference you made? A. No, nineteen.
Twice nineteen is thirty-eight. The majority was usunlly from twelve to seventeen the other way anil I put it twenty-
seven the wny I wanted It.
A second method, which was the one
thnt Prltchett taught to some half a
dozen Belccted deputies at each poll,
is thus described by the witness:
"Ho ttho deputy returning officer)
would have them (the bogus ballots) in
his pocket, keep It In the palm of his
hand and when you tear thu counterfoil
off, you will leave the substituted hnllot
there, pretend to take the counterfoil
and take the whole thing, the elector
thinks ho sees his ballot and It Is dropped In the box."
Q. How did you get iheue ballots, the
ones you had ready?
A. I would usunlly find them In n convenient place for my use.
At a later stage Prltchett said that he
sometime* found a bundle of bogus ballots ready lor him under the bed In his
room. The custom was to pay the ballot Bwllchlng returning officer f& for
each genuine ballot marked for Con-
BcrvutlvoB which he produced to show
that he hud substituted thut number.
These were hla vouchers.
A third method deacribed by Prltchett
wns for the officer to put a bit of lead
under hla thumb nail and mark with It
a certain number of Conservative ballots which would miike them bad. Thla
was done In counting at the close of the
poll. The returning officer was paid $5
for each ballot so destroyed.
ROME HITS BACK
Ultra-Liberals' Manifesto
Denounced
HEPLY OF^PIUS TENTH
New Party  Demanded  Reform of
Church Doctrine on God. Creation and Revelation.
Rome, July 18.���The first, move of the
Vatican against the ultra-Liberal Catholic campaign, in which, among others,
a secret international league is said to
be included, has taken the form of a
decree promulgated by the Pope last
night, sepciflcally condemning 65 statements taken from the writings of leading Catholic modernist writers, whose
names, however, are not given. Among
the statements condemned Is one approving a total disregard of the prohibitions of the Index expurgatorius and
of other Roman Catholic congregations.
The three last articles of the syllabus
setting forth the condemnations are as
follows:
Article ���3���The church shows herself
to be Incapable of guaranteeing the efficacy of evangelical morality for she
remains tightly bound to a doctrine
which cannot be made to agree with
modern progress.
Article 64���The progress of science
requires a reform in the conception of
the Christian doctrine on the subjects
of tlod, the creation and the revelation.
Aarticle 66���Modern Catholicism cannot be made to agree with science if
it cannot be transformed into Catholicism thut is non-dogmatic, that U to
say. Protestantism, large and liberal.
The greater part of the propositions
are such as any other Christian church
would have condemned as a menace to
Christianity. The Vatican will follow up
the syllabus with vigorous disciplinary
measures against all priests refusing to
subscribe to  Its decisions.
GERMAN CAUSE CELEBRE.
Ex-Professor, Accused of Murder, Shows
Great Control.
Karlsruhe, Germany, July 18.���The
trial of Karl Hau, formerly professor of
Roman Law In George Washington university, Washington, was continued today. Hau uppeared In the court room
looking as cheerful and confident as yes-
teiday. He surprised the court by making Important admissions concerning incidents of which he had hitherto refused to speak. When the presiding
judge called handwriting experts to
identify Hau's writing In thu despatch
sent from Pails calling Frau Moiitor to
lhat city, Hau anticipating the testimony, arose from his seat and said that
In order to expedite the case be would
admit that he wrote this despatch. The
Judge inquired whether or not he sent
it off, but Hau declined to answer. He
also refused to say whether his wife
wus awure thut tills had been sent.
Philip I'hlig, a merchant of Frank
fort, had seen a man at the railroad station, wearing a false beard and mous-
tuehe. The judge here asked Hau to
put on similar disguises and I'hlig then
recognzled him ns the same man. Anna Leroli, who left Washington with Mr.
und Mrs. Hau in tho capacity of maid
servant, testified that when Hau left
1 .uiulim to return tc the continent he
cautioned his wife to keep his London
address secret. The wife asked If she
might write to her mother and Hau replied:  "Of course."
C. A. Knitter, a newspaper mun of
Constuntinople, testified thut while Hun
was In the Turkish cupltal ho plnyed
the part of a capitalist. He spent money
lavishly, chartered a yacht, organized
revels nt a hotel with dancing girls, and
boasted of his wild life as a student.
He claimed to have an immense income
and showed a passion for collecting precious stones. Frau Mueller, a sister of
Hau's Htepmother, replied thut she uc-
enmpunted Mr. Hau, senior, to London.
Upon hearing of the atrust of Hau she
had nn interview with him In prison.
Hhe found him much altered and In a
state nf great mental agitation. He
mive her the Impression of a crasey man.
holding his arms rigidly to his sides
und then touching his foreheud in a
similar manner. Bho suld to him: "Are
you guilty, Karl?'" To this the prisoner
nnswered; No; I didn't do it." Hau
boarded with Kruu Mcllcr while nttend-
lru; the clnsslcul pruparutory school at
Treves. She snld he wus a good boy
and a model student, hut that he commenced to show slgna of amatory abber-
rnllonus soon tl he left school. Referring
to Nun's elopeiiHMit with Linn Moiitor,
the witness snld the couple went lo
^Switzerland where they were visited by
Mr. Hau. senior. They soon nfter ran
out of funds and were In despair.  Sho
was informed, the witness continued,
that the couple Intended to commit suicide and that Hau bad shot at Llna,
but missed ber heart. Llna then requested Hau to shoot a second time,
but the man's courage failed him. They
then planned to end their lives by poisoning, but the project was abandoned.
Upon hearing of his son's trouble Mr.
Hau, senior, decided that the couple
must marry, go to America and start
life anew. He undertook to assist them
financially.
COLLECTION   OF  RFRTft
froviadftl Ubimry; .Must
Never Be Used.
The Hague, July 18.���The American
delegation has presented to the peace
conference the following proposition:
"If for any reason, a captured vessel
cannot be tried, the vessel must be
released." The Peruvian delegation
has presented the following amendment
to the American proposition regarding
the collection of contractual debts:
"The principles established by this
proposition cannot be applied to cases
arising from contracts between the government of one country and the foreign
subjects of another; when the contracts
provide, differences must be submitted
to the judges of local tribunals." The
Venezuelan representative presented a
proposition on the same subject, making the addition that in case of contracts existing, all diplomatic means
of reaching an understanding must be
tried before recourse is had to the permanent court of arbitration. The Venezuelan declaration ends with these
words: "It is understood that said differences are to be settled througn
peaceful means without recourse to coercive measures implying the employment of military or naval forces."
Sailor* Drowned.
Copenhagen, July 18.���Fourteen per--
sons are reported to have been drowned
at Marsland. Sweden, by the capsizing
of a sailboat. Only one of the party escaped.
PAID EXTREME PENALTY
James A. Dale,    Murderer,   of   Carmi,
Hanged at Kamloop* Gaol
Thi* Morning.
Kamloops, H. C, July 18.���With the
same Indifference that characterized
his residence tn Nelson gaol James A.
Dale ascended the scaffold at 8 o'clock
this morning and waa haha*ed. Notwithstanding* the fact that petitions had
been In circulation for some time praying for a commutation of his sentence.
Dale had no hope that he would escape
the death penalty. Those who were
with him to the last unite In saying that
he had little concern in the outcome of
the effort made to save his life. It Is
quite certain that he would have committed suicide had the opportunity presented Itself, and for that reason the
guards were vigilant In their last watch
over the condemned man. The gash In
his throat, caused when he attempted
.suicide with the table knife several
months, ago, gave a great deal of trouble up to the last, and If he had not
suffered death thla morning, his misery
would have only been prolonged by a
commutation of his sentence. Throughout his incarceration he never expressed sorrow for his crime, and no
doubt, under the same circumstances,
he would have repeated the crime that
sent Peter Oodereau and Joseph Celle
to their death, near Greenwood, last
October. Ills father was In attendance
upon the son until the last, and it was
only during his meetings with the old
man that Dale showed any si|;n of emotion. His last night on earth was uneventful. He slept soundly and exhibited no signs or nervousness at any
stage In the arrangements for his execution. Dale had some good qualities,
but a bad temper was the cause of his
undoing.
Take No Chance*.
Paris. July 18.���United States Rear
Admiral Stockton states thnt Japanese
sailorr. will not be Invited to the entertainment arranged for tho American
sailors, and that shore leave will soon
be curtailed while the squadron is at
llrei.t In order to avoid all chance of un-
ploasunt incidents, which are always
possible when blue Jncketn ot different
nationalities meet on shure.
Plead* Heredity.
"Jim" Pouporo was telling stories of
Ms construction camp last night. One
of them illustrates hereditary tendency
to crime. A young American had n
wordy quarrel with a Swede. Neither
seemed very angry. The American
quietly went to hlB tent, returned with
a butcher knife nnd killed Ihe Swede.
He was nt once arrested. His only plea
tu that he couldn't help It. It was
learned later that Ills grandfather* *vus
bunged, and his father Is undergoing
Hie imprisonment, U.th for similar of-
1 fences.

EMPEROR DEFENCELESS
Abdication In Favor of Weak Prince
Will Mean Absolute Control
by Japanese.
Toklo, July 18.���As a result of urgent
representations by the ministers It is
very probable that the emperor of Korea will abdicate In favor of the crown
prince as the first step toward reform In
Korea. This will most likely be followed by the calling of a new convention, which will keep Korea's national
existence Intact, will limit the sovereign power in some form whereas the
ruler can exercise his powers only with
the consent and approval of the Japanese resident-general. The present ministers In Seoul are actuated by true patriotism and are determined to place
the Korean government upon a' firm
basis, and free from court Intrigues and
selfish plots.
Seoul, July 18. via Toklo.���Placards
were posted in one of the thoroughfares
calling for the death of all Japanese officials In Seoul. The ministers are
strongly guarded and every precaution
has been taken to prevent riots and attacks on tho officials. The emperor Is
reported to be too worried to sleep but
thla report is considered to be ono of
his usual manoeuvres to enlist the sympathy of the public
Seoul, July 18.���The cabinet ministers. Including the newly appointed
household minister, have resigned. It
is reported that the emperor is very
angry at his ministers on account of
their having advised him to abdicate.
He said to them that he occupied the
throne by right Inherited from his ancestors and that his subjects hda no authority to advise his dethronement,
much less to do so with ths support of
foreigners. Marquis Ito, In compliance
with the emperor's urgent desire to see
him, even for a short time, proceeded
to the palace this afternoon.
Seoul, July 18. via Toklo.���Tho emperor's loss of loyal adherents, of a
large portion of his subjects, will, it la
believed, result in the gradual development of his policy to always play one
minister or faction against another ao
as to prevent the concentration of a
power In a single body. The emperor
himself Is constantly distrustful of all
about him and haunted with the tear
of an attempt on hla life. The Chlng
Moi, a progressive association claiming
a membership of over a million, Is now
openly hostile to the emperor and it Is
doubtful If the few now standing by him
will continue their support until the
last. ,    j
FLOOD IN WEST VIRGINIA.
Bridget.   Houses  and   Churches  Swept
Away���Traffic Tied  Up.
Wheeling. W. Va.. July 18.���Despatches la.it night from Orafton, Tun-
nelton and other towns In the Tygarta
valley In northern West Virginia tell
of terrific rains followed by the liver going out of Its banks nearly its entire
length, causing property losses that will
aggregate nearly a quarter of a million
dollars. At Klklns the rainfall reached
the remarkable total of five Inches and
was nearly as heavy at other points.
Fifteen or more bridges are washed out,
railroads are washed out and at Orafton a church was five feet over tho
Baltimore & Ohio tracks and several
houses were washed away. At McCoras
tho wuter came In an Immense wave,
wrecking tho house of Mrs. Mary Ballard, carrying off three of her small
children, whose bodies have not been
recovered. At Orafton traffic on-the
llBltomore & Ohio is tied up. A railroad bridge passed there but It la not
known where It came from. It is feared
many other lives have been lost as tho
flood came without warning.
Stenographer'* Suicide.
Chicago, July 18.���While talking to
friends on the 15th floor of the Masonic
Temple Miss Anna Normoyle, a stenographer, deliberately walking to an
open court window and without a word
o fwarnlng threw herself to the stone
pavement of the rotunda, 260 feet below. The girl wns mutilated almost beyond recognition. No euii.se is known
for tho suicide.

THE   LOYAL   OPPOSITION.
-ki
still seeking to di-s;nut attention
irom the wholesale iteollng tn every
deportment at Ottawa, from the carnival
of bribery personation, baUot*switchtng
and ballut-bux hi tiffing by which Mr.
' Hyman's seal in London and a score ol
pthen throughout tin* oountry were
stolen from the electors, und from the
BhameleHB muclilno voting in the Housr
against every motion for Investigation
of conttiBHod fraud, Liberal machine
organs un; asking. "What inw the opposition done to Justify Ub existence?"
For unblushing Impudence the Question probably takei the record in Canadian political history. Pew Liberal editors would bave the effrontery to submit it, if it hud not been dictated by the
machine.
The Conservative opposition under
R. h. Borden bus, of course, put no teg
Islet-ion on the etfttute book. Their failure Ib not due to want of intelligent
effort hut to the callous rejection of
every motion offered, usually without
any attempt at Justification by a responsible minister.
it in deliberate falsehood to Bay that
the opposition has not protested against
the extravagant ex-jJendUure of public
money nor pointed to specific Instances.
They have never been guilty of obstruction or of opposition tor opposition's
Bake. They have assented generally to
the policy or increased expenditure for
public works to keep pace with the
growing ceeds of the country, especially of the west. Bui they have never
ceased to protest against extravagance
and dishonesty. They have proved on
every occasion allowed by the brute
majority In the public accounts commit fete, that a large proportion of the
money spent is not goin^ into development at all but Into the pockets of contributors to the Machine campaign fund,
and  inti. that  fund directly.    The  pur
chase of sites for stations for the Intercolonial were Jnvariubly made at
prices far in excess of the value of the
property acquired. Large accounts ot
the Grand Trunk Pacific company,
passed by the finance department and
qtiestioaed I*? the auditor general, were
withdrawn rather than have them examined by the public accounts committee. For the first time in the history
of the Canadian parliament, requests
for information and evidence were refused by the minister in charge, backed
by  a   servile parly  majority.
But the greatest insult to the intelli-
genoe of the people of Canada is contained in the taunt that the Conservatives have no taiiff policy. Their tariff
pulley Is still in iorce, substantially as
it was framed in 1878, Unlike their
Liberal opponents they do not execute
a volte face for the sake of opposing.
Liberal!) could advocate at the same
timfl Unrestricted Reciprocity, Free
Trade, Commercial Union, Tariff for
RSVI nue Only, aud Free Trade an They
Have It in Knglund���five distinct policies, and their record hai proved them
insincere aud dishonest In the uilvo-
eacy of each one.
What is tlie Liberal tariff policy of
today? Sir Wilfrid Laurler lias never
retracted his iamous vow, "never to
rest until he had wiped out the last vestige of the iniquitous system or protection." Israel Turte was dismissed from
the cabinet for having the honesty and
the courage frankly to avow a protectionist policy, Sir Wilfrid has accepted
and still keeps a Cobden Club medal for
his udvocacy of Free Trade, and at the
jame time appeals lo Brltlfeh audiences
to reciprocate In the matter of preferential tariffs. If Hubby Inconsistency
could go farther, no example has yet
been shown in Canada. Conservatives
may not, Indeed, be absolutely unanimous as to the last detail of a protective tariff system, but the reproach from
Liberal! is delicious. There is no difference of opinion on the subject, among
Liberals because there is no opinion at
all. It is easy for men to agree who
have  no  principles to  conflict.
If their work in the House of Commons had been robbed of all its value
by suppression by the Machine vote, the
Dominion opposition has still rendered
Invaluable service to the cotifttry in
protesting against the organized lying
and stealing of the Machine and lis
creatures, and in fairly presenting the
issue of tho People against the
Machine.
EDITORIAL  COMMENT.
The date of the next Dominion campaign is still the chief topic of political
discussion in the Kast. It is conceded
Lhat the money stringency, the epidemic
Of labor troubles at Cobalt and elsewhere, aud the general expectation of at
least a slight interruption to the good
times, are circumstances that make nn
appeal at B very early date advisable
in the Interests of the Liberal party
The trial of the London election conspiracy cannot be much longer delayed,
its revelations are not likely to he
creditable to the Machine. There are
two important vacancies in the cabinet
and none available to fill them. All
these things seem to point to an appeal
at an early date, but it is said that Sir
Will rid Laurler gave his personal
pledge to Mr. Borden that there would
be another  sessional
The proposal to establish a real
estate board in Nelson is one that will
no doubt meet with general approval.
Some citizens have occasionally had an
uncomfortable feeling that the strangers
who are buying fruit land in the district are not getting value for their
money. But those in the best position to
know maintain that at prices now prevailing Kootenay fruit land is the best
investment on the market, and that the
price per acre is destined to rise steadily for many years yet. The organization of a board means the creation of
a responsible body which cannot afford
to be guilty, collectively or through any
of Its members, of anything resembling
misrepresentation.
The Manitoba Free Vress of July l"��th
devotes nearly a page to a protest
against detective mail service in Manitoba. The Free Press is the leading
Liberal organ in the West. It is not
unnatural that postal facilities should
have failed to keep pace with the extremely rapid growth of Manitoba.
There will be no criticism from any
quarter if the postmaster general sacrifices his hopes of a surplus to satisfying
as far as possible the legitimate demands of the West.

GOVERNMENT^ CONTROL
Steps Towards Partial  Control   of   Railways Advocated in America-
Roosevelt Opposed.
Washington, July 18.���An entirely
new and extremely radical proposition
for control of rallrouds has been advanced for the conHideratlon of rivsi-
dcni Roosevelt. It involves partial ownership of transportation lines by actual
purchase of slock.
The suggestion has been made In a
seml-olliclal way, but whether President
Roosevelt would adopt the scheme,
which Is so nearly Socialistic in its de-
veloximent, may well be doubted. Jt
has been stated, however, that he is
actually considering such a recommendation, and lhat it is part of the prop-
usjtinn to bring; the railroads to time
by securing receivers for them.
The two schemes fit into each other
Iierfectly. It would be practically im-
Iiossiblo for the government to secure
the appointment of receivers or to control in any way receivers after they
were appointed unless it had a monetary interest In the railroad. If It
owned stock, no matter how small an
amount, It would have a standing in
court, the same as the largest creditor
of 'in* road.
The Idea of purchasing stock is a
practical one, but it is undeniably government ownership on a small scale,
and Inevitably would result In actual
ownership In the long run. The theory
of those who ha\'e advanced this
scheme for the consideration of President Roosevelt in that by a comparatively small investment in the stock
there might be a small measure of government ownership, but without any
government control, so far as the running of the road Is concerned.
It 1b not believed here that President
Roosevelt will give the new scheme favorable consideration, lie has declared
himself against government ownership,
by which hn meant ownership outright,
of railroads. He suggested that this was
Socialistic In its tendency.
It is easy to see that by the purchase
of stock in a railroad the government
would be in a position to secure much
better control than is now possible In
the first place, as previously stated, a
stockholder has a right to appeal to the
courts for redress at any time he considers his interests are Jeopardized The
small stockholder In this way indirectly
Is given some of the control of the railroad, although, of course, he has nothing to do with its actual operation.
The plan officially given out through
the department of justice the other day
for the appointment of receivers was
fatally defective, because the government would in no case be financially interested nnd would have only a precarious standing In whirl. The proposition to hny stock is sft necessary to the
Nelson L*nd Ptslrlct   District ol West Kootenay.

William AKuaaw Kum,.
Bcheme for the appointment of receivers that it Is almost evident President
Roosevelt cannot indorse one in hla
next annual message without taking
them together.
It has been suggested that In certain
cases the government might pursue ita
purchase of stock to a point where it
would have enough to entitle it to at
least one member of the board of directors. With a government director in
the managing body of a great railroad
it would be less easy for the QtHitToBtnt;
element in the road to resort to secret
means of financing or operation.
The government would be in position
to secure all necessary information as
to traffic arrangements, stuck operations, and consolidation with other railroads.
There are a great many people who
make a strong distinction between
these two things. They have no objection to a municipality or the government owning railroads or street car
systems, provided the actual operations
are intrusted to private hands. One of
the strongest objections to government
ownership has always been the manifest danger of creating enormoas political machines, the employees in turn,
on account of their political strength,
practically1 dictating the terms of their
own employment.
The suggestion haB been made, therefore, that President Roosevelt might not
object to government ownership to almost any extent, provided it did not involve government operation, but merely
still closer supervision than that which
now can be exercised by the interstate
commerce commission. The new scheme
is Socialistic, but even among those
here who have received it with something In the nature of a shudder it Is admitted that it would in the end put the
government in the position of being
able to dictate the general management
of the railroads of the country.
The same scheme might be applied
to big interstate corivorations. To purchase even enough stock to secure the
election of a director in half a dozen
different railroads involves the expenditure of an enormous sum of money,
and Congress would have to appropriate
millions upon millions, although in
some cases the government would receive its dividends the same as any
other stockholder, provided the railroad
was properly managed.
There are those who remember, however, an unfortunate experience of the
federal government in connection with
the Pacific railroads. They were given
enormous land grants and bond Issues,
guaranteed by the government, and In
return for this the United States always had a member on the board of directors of these roads. It is not now
remembered that this government's representation had any tangible effect in
the way of reducing rates or keeping
the railroads from violating the law in
any way they saw fit
It Is evident that the government
cannot control a railroad until it owns
a controlling Interest any more than an
individual can do it. When It owns a
controlling interest there is complete
government ownership, and it seems impossible to work out any theory by
which a controlling interest in a railroad would turn over Its operation to
the minority interat.
The result seems to be that the purchase of a small amount of stock would
necessarily be followed by the buying
of more and more, until first, government ownership, nnd then government
operation would become Indispensable
to the protection of the enormous Investment made by the government.
