Real   Issue la Autocracy Agalnat Self-
Government���Strength of Clericals
and Socialists.
Berlin, Jnn. 25.���The voting in Ihe
reichstag elections began today. Emperor William called upon the chancellor, Prince Von Buelow during the
morning, after which the chancellor
drove to the polling place and voted.
There was no disorder.
The general election, precipitated by
the action of the kaiser ln summarily
dismissing tbe reichstag after Its refusal to pass the measure which Involved a large rvote In the Interests of
his colonial policy, has aroused more
popular Interest than has any similar
contest since the foundation of the empire In 1871. The nominal Issues of colonial maladministration and German
military prestige bave been lost Bight
of by the people. In the opinion of the
average elector the real Issue at stake
is whether the emperor is going to lead
the nation or the nation Ib to rule It-
The real duel Is between the government aud the Centre and will only
occur when the new reichstag meets.
If, as anticipated, the Centre, which
commands three oul of the eleven million votes composing the imperial electorate, returns with undiminished numbers and becomes allied with the Social Democrats, it will be strong enough
at any time to upset the governmenl.
If on the other hand. It returns weakened, it is expected that a period of
reaction against the autocracy will set
In, which will only accentuate Ihe
feeling of pessimism In the empire, arising chiefly from discontent with the
heavy pressure of taxation and the
agrarian tariff policy. Consequently,
whatever Ihe result of the elections,
grave dangers and a new and much
more Berlous crisis threaten the empire's domestic peace.
A prominent feature of the Bltuation
In the popular resentment thai the 11-
tramonlanes. who acknowledge the Vatican's Biipreme rulo. are able to exercise a carting vote In questions of national Importance, thereby forcing a
dissolution. The Moderates and Fr��
grcsslsts havo combined to tennlna e
the Ultramontane power, bul tne ���
tramontanes are confident of undtato-
ished success in tomorrow s elections.
The Roman Catholic populatIon of
Southern Germany assures a ���n���
tion approximately of the present numerical strength of the party.

Railway Companies Owning Goal Nines
Report of   Inter-State   Commerce
Commission Contains Drastic
Washington. Jan. 25.���The Interstate
commerce commission today transmitted to congress its first re|iort on lis
investigation of discriminations and
monopolies under the Joint resolution
of congress of March 7, 1906, known as
thc Tillman-Gillespie resolution. The
ivpnit deals with the bituminous coal
district, bounded on the west by the
Ohio river and interior, on tlie south
by the Norfolk & Weslern railway, ou
the north by Canada, and on the east
by the Atlantic seaboard. The roads
involved are the Norfolk & Western,
Chesapeake & Ohio, I). & O., Pennsylvania. Buffalo, Rochester & Pittsburg,
Beech Creek division of the New York
Central & Hudson River, the Pittsburg
& Shawmul, Buffalo & Susquehanna,
and Western Virginia Central & Pitts-
burg, now the West Maryland.
The report Bays that all the above
companies own, directly or by stock interest In other companies, large interests In coal isnds. The report is practically a summary of the Information
gleaned as a result of the investigation
thus far made, together with tlie presentation of facts pertinent to the general inquiry. The reiiort concludes
wllh these recommendations for legislative action:
First���Thnt every common carrier
engaged In Interstate car distribution
put Inlo effect upon its railway and
the several divisions thereof, rules
showing how the equipment for coal
service ls divided between the several
divisions of its road and how the same
in times when the supply of equipment
does not equal the demand is divided
among the several mining operations
along each road*, and that the carrier
lurther be required to publish at stated
periods, and a t each divisional headquarters upon Its line of road, the system of car distribution In effect, and
the actual distribution made to each
mining oiieratlon under such system.
Second���Tbat where the capacity of
the mines is the basis for the distribution of equipment, a fair, just and
equitable rating of the mines be required and that provisions be made for
the representation of owners of the
mines at the rating thereof.
Third���That after a reasonable time
carriers engaged In Interstate commerce be prohibited from using individual or privato cars for the handling of
coal traffic.
Fourth���That carriers engaged in interstate commerce bo forbidden after
reasonable time to own or have interest directly or indirectly In any operated coal properties except such as are
exclusively for their own fuel supply,
and that ownership either directly or
indirectly by officers or employees of
common carriers of any coal properties or any of the stock of coel companies along the line or road by which
tliey are employed, be forbidden.
Jury in Thaw    Murder   Cas? May Be
Completed by Monday.
New York, Jan. 26.���District Attorney Jerome and the counsel for the defence in lhe trial of Hatty K. Thaw all
express themselves as gratified at lhe
progress being made in lhe selection
of the Jury. Five men wero in the box
when the court adjourned yesterday,
and, as Ihe examination of jurors so
far developed, is not nearly so aeyere
as was expected, the prospects are
gosiil that the additional jurymen will
be obtained today. Some of those connected with the caso predict that thc
jury will be completed by Monday
night and that tho trial proper will begin on Tuesday. Thaw himself took
more Interest In the proceedings yesterday and two additional jurors would
have been secured had lt not been for
His interference. A talesman had
moved acceptable to the district attorney and to Clifford Harbrldge, lead
ing counsel for Thaw, when there was
a sudden gathering of heads over the
table at the end of which was Harry
Thaw. The juror was about to be
sworn when this occurred, and Mr.
Harbrldge stopped proceedings to hear
what Tha whad to say. When the conference ended the prospective Juror
was challenged for cause. The proceeding happened a Becond time during
the day.
Thaw again objected lo a talesman
who was acceptable to cunsel. Thaw
seemed pleased with the day's work.
Ab he entered the Tombs he aald to
the keejier, "We got three ln the laat
half hour (meaning Jurorsl. and they
are good men, too, I think." The dlatrlct attorney kept np hla hammering
on the "unwritten law," and a possible
deviation from the written law governing the criminally Insane. Yeesterday
afternoon he added another feature to
his plan of examination, asking the
talesmen If they were capable of withstanding appeals to their own emotions
and feelings, and whether they thought
they could pass on the prisoner's case
coldly and calmly, according to the Instructions In the law they would receive from the Judge. This was taken
as a sign of the district, attorney's anus i|iution of the promised appeal from
M. Delphaa, of counsel for the defence.
Preparations for    Withdrawal    of   All
Ruaaiana From Manchuria.
St. Petersburg, Jan. 25.���The Russian government has decided to withdraw Its troops from Manchuria immediately Instead of waiting the date,
April 16, fixed by the Russo-Japanese

Workmen Against It
Belfast, Jan. 25.���The labor conference today overwhelmingly rejected the

The opponents of the proposition declared that it would create Irreparable

Enthusiastic Reception of Conservative
Candidate in Big Eaat Kootenay
(Special to The Daily  Canadian.)
Moyie, Jan. 24.���McGregor hall was
packed to the doors last night to listen
to J. A. Harvey, the Conservative candidate, discuss the issues of the campaign. H1b address to the people
showed that he Is a thinker and a convincing speaker more than a magnetic
orator; self-controlled, a fearless truth
leller, and sincere. He was pleased
to have Kelly, the Labor candidate, on
the platform with him, as throughout
the campaign he had found him a fair
opponent and a gentleman. He had
Utile fault lo find with the Labor plat
form, and said it was similar in moat
respects to the one he was running on.
But British Columbia needed both capital and labor and the legislation for
one needed to be as well safeguarded,
as for Ihe other, and the two must
work In harmony to bring about the
best results for the province. He pointed to the excellent record made by
the McBride government, and gave
ample reason why It should bo re
turned. There was no doubt In his
mind about the government being sustained, and in view of this the Cranbrook riding should have a government
member in the legislature. Mr. Harvey was at his best and he did effective work. His remarks were punctuated throughout with hearty applause.
Thos. E. Kelly, the Labor candidate,
spoke for almoBt 40 minutes. He fell
lhat labor was entitled to representation and he thought tho arfalrB of the
district woqld be safe in his hands. If
elected. He read his platform and said
he would stay by it, and further that
he would not affiliate with any of the
political parties that have been, or may
he. represented in the house.
Thos. Caven made* a few happy remarks and made It plain why he was
supporting Mr. Harvey. He , also
pointed to the fact that lt was Impossible to defeat a government which
had brought ahout such prosperity.
Mr. A. P. Macdonald waB chairman of
the meeting.
Relief From Japan.
Tacoma, Jan. 25.���Several cargoes of
ooal shipped from Japan will be received at Puget Sound within the next
week to help relieve the fuel famine.
Liberal Candidate Sold to
Admit Defeat
Opposition Chiefs Angry and Divided
Over Conduct of Campaign���
Angers a Failure
(Special to Tbe Dally Canadian.)
Cranbrook, Jan. 25.���The fact paten!
to every man of the three parties now
in the field for the Cranbrook division
ls that the widest possible line of cleavage exists between the Labor party and
those supporting Dr. King. This can
be attributed to the utter want of tact
of our present representative ln hia
speeches in Cranbrook, Port Steele and
other places and the still more glaring
Indiscretions and stupidities of his
spellbinders. Angers especially, and the
mouthtnga 'of his rooters around the
saloons and street corners. Dr. King
personally admits the hopelessness of
his campaign, and when this is backed
np by a like admission from the man
who haa the largest personal issue ln
the fight, lt Ib no betrayal of confidence to give the public the benefit ot
this absolutely uncontrovertible Information.
It was hoped that by securing Angers
as a stumper and general booster the
vote of the French-Canadian lumbermen would be secured. Angers has
proved as great a failure aa Mclnnea
and so far from securing the labor vote
he waa booted and ridiculed at the labor meeting here last evening. An absolute riot has broken out in the King
camp. The Llberala recognise that
their organisation has fallen Into the
wrong hands and that a whirlwind of
talk In the opening of the fight was
merely "sound and fury, signifying
nothing." The moral of the political
situation here may be summed up In
the expression, "King Is out of IL"
This may be attempted to be refuted
as a campaign lie, but those In the Inside of the Liberal camp here know Its
truth In all IU bitterness and tbat bitterness is not soothed by the internecine warfare among the Liberal chiefs
who, liiidlng the set of public opinion
against their man, are squabbling
among themselves as to who fs to
1,1am i Ior the Impending catastrophe.

Protesting Railroad Merger, and
Watered Stock.
St. Paul, Jan. 25.���Attorney General
Young today b?gan proceedings ln the
supreme court to compel the St. Paul,

not be forfeited. This company, formerly known as the Minnesota ft Pacific company, la really the parent of
tbe Great Northern Railway company
and the Great Northern to joined in
thla issue, as it ls the owner of the
Manitoba company stock. The complaint goes into alleged details connected with the forming ot the "merger"
known as the Great Northern Railroad
company. Mr. Young charges that the
St. Paul, Minneapolis ft Manitoba Railroad company since Its transfer to the
Great Northern on February 1, 1(80.
has ceased to perform the functions for
which It waa created. It ia charged.
Further, that in the alleged purehaae of
the property a large amount of watered
stock waa iaaued by the Great Northern
company.   Mr. Young continues:
"It seems that the Great Northern
company was created solely to make tt
noaslble to Inflate the capitalisation of
tbe system bv making a sale ot proper-
les to the Great Northern at a price
in excess of their value. It la eaay to
see why, under the circumstances, the
Great Northern company should pay a
premium of five million dollars In purchase of stock of the Manitoba company."

Hheor pervorfllty, ... A. Macdonald,
erBtwhile Liberal leader, hat. attacked
the meaimre uh Htrlklng at the efficiency of the public HehoolH.
A curious parallel Bii-KKe-BtH Itself. In
England quits recently an Education
Bill hau panned tbo bOQM of commonB
and been rejected by the lords. Its
object waH to replace a real Education
Act passed in 31*02. The second bill
really differed from the present act only in respect of rollgloiiH Instruction.
Bo, an alleged Education bill merely
provided an occasion for strife between religious organizations.
In   British   Columbia,   a   Bchool   Act
was in reality a financial measure on
J>. It. did not. affect the school system
In an,, particular, either in theory or
in practice. It left the curricula unchanged; it did not change the qnaiifj-
catfonH for teachers or trustees, H retained the system of Inspection, the in-
ppeotOTSl districts, the school districts.
the relations between teacherH and
trustee, and between both and the provincial  education   department.
Its sole purpose and Its Hole result
was to transfer a part���and a very
Hmal! part.���of the financial responsibility entailed by a free school system
from the provincial treasury to -the
municipalities, which were clothed
with new powers of levying rates for
that, purpose.
Let It be candidly admitted that the
change caused at first a Hale confusion, as the financial duties were new
to a majority of the trustees���to all,
Jn fact, who had not served as school
trustees In other parts of Canada. But
Quite as much difficulty would have
been created by a change in the mln
ing laws, or In timber regulations, and
far more by a change in the 1* d registry act. Some trustees, either from
mere Indolence or stupidity, or actuated by partizan malice, refused either
to perform the now duties or to make
way for others with sufficient Intelligence. But. Hiich a childish attitude
could not he long rnalnlalned and, a-H a
matter ,of fact, the school trustees
throughout the province are now performing their duties faithfully and efficiently.
Two Liberal memlmrs at once attacked the bill, .John Oliver and J. A.
No one, except himself, ever takes
John Oliver seriously on any subject.
But ,1, A, Macdonald chose to regard
the bill as a serious innovation on the
school system. Why he did ao Is a
mystery, unleR. It be that he felt he
ought to figure at leaHt once as a ser-
Ioiih  critic of  the  administration.
It Ib hard to underntand how hfs
advocacy of "slate education" and the
evident suggestion that the present
system Ih not state education, can pam-t
the scrutiny of his own analytical
mind. If by "state education" ho

For an exhibition of utterly disen
geuooo*. pleading, the leading edi.orial
In this mornings edition of The Daily
News has had few equals during the
First there is an explanation full an-i
fair enough, of the News' ridiculous
misunderstanding of C. H. Bonner's
telegram, c!ostng with the following
"The Daily News, therefore, wronged
Hi Macta;- tfl saying thai he had refused lo make a faatemen*. As a matter of fact, he has had no chance, for
the mesaage from The Daily News has
not reached him. The same thing being true of Mr. Green, the silence of
tnese gentlemen cannot bf taken as
damaging evidence."
Then follows a comment on t he explicit denial of the World lies by Granville Cuppage. who wa? accused of being a pan/ to the bribe, steai or what
ever is suggested by the World. Then,
curiously, is the following:
'The denial given by Mr. Cuppage oa
this score is accepted; but it scarcely
alters the situation; the only denials
that can be of any value must come
from Mr Green in the firs' place, from
bis colleagues in the second, from Mr.
Macka:- in the third and, finally, from
Sir Adolph Caron "
Now, the News has already stated,
in the aame article, that the silence ot
Mesirs Greea and Mackay is fully explained by their being away from tei**-
graph communication. Messrs. Mc
Bride and Tatlow have already given
the invention a straight denial. There
only remains Sir Adolph Caron, who
is presumably home in Quebec.
It is har-J that a number of honest
men should hav*- to combine to undo
the effect of a slander manufactured
and published by a vile Journal that
has king nince given up all pretence of
honor and decency.
There is a great outcry from Liberal
orators and editors because the McBride government did not remit all ordinary taxes Oj the people of British
Columbia and take the whole revenue
required for the administration of the
province out of the railway companies
The argument of course is a favorite
one, because corporations are always
unpopular and railways in British Columbia, on account of the prevailing
high passenger and freight rates,
especially so. Everyone knows that
British Columbia presents greater
cfTTficultles to railway construction
than any other part of the North American continent. It required liberal aid
ln money and land and exemption from
taxation, to induce anyone to build. It
Is a question If any railway company
has made a profit to date out of any
branch In this province. Of course, as
population and production increase
these conditions will change. In the
meantime it Ih neither right nor expedient to put Huch a burden upon the
railways as will prevent the possibility
of a balance of receipts and disbursements on their lines within the province. Even corporations are entitled
to fair play. For years the railways
paid no taxes at all. The McBride government has Increased their taxes &00
per cent, and by the School Act ha��
made them liable to taxation by the
municipalities. Isn't that a fair beginning? Incidentally the Liberals have
carefully refrained from saying what
they would do about It, If In power.
The Innate goodness of human nature
Ih Illustrated by the remarks made
on the latest story about Robert F.
Green. It will be remembered by many
that at the close of a trial in Nelson
of a charge of attempted murder, the
learned Judge, In spite of the evidence
or two eye-witnesses, and abundant corroborative testimony, held that the offence was so horrible that no man
could have committed It. In the present case the view la expressed by some
that the publication of such a story, it
false, would be such a blackguardly act
that there must bo some truth In it.

the way, why is Smith Curtis running

int associated in any one's mind wiih
J A. Macdonald and Wfitte Mclnnes?
Smith Curtis could certainly be elected in Rossland. where J. A Macdonald
is gome to be beaten. He would be a
for more formidable candidate in Ymir
than J Fred Hume. But Smith Curtis
wi*h whose political views we do not
agree in the slightest, is personally an
honest aad honorable man. He hates
and despises the Ottawa machine as
much a.? any Conservative does, and he
has rightly, nothing but contempt for
W W B. Mclnnes. the tool of that machine, and ior J. A. Macdonald, bis
half ashamed accomplice.
Our morning contemporary has a
high Id*__. of journalistic honor and honesty. It la quite certain that If the
London financial News was not bribed
by Mr. McBride, it praised his administration merely as a favor to R. K. Gosnell. The conception that the article
was written as an honest expression or
opinion by a reputable financial journal seems beyond the Xews' intellectual horizon.
It is something refreshingly new in
journalistic enterprise to announce the
arrival of a man on mere hearsay evidence, however bona fide, and then impute fear or some other equally creditable motive for his failure to keep the
appointment made for him.
Would The Daily News mind directing a lot of Ignorant Conservatives to
the hiding place of that C. P. K. campaign fund that its clairvoyance has
located. ,

ifiii as to realize a sum equal to
���ati-r than  the  present valuation
��� reserve as now situated, therein1 province should be willing to

;sji|slls'si   for."
- held that this argument did up-
ill'  Kaien Island transaction for
the reason that the establishment of
terminals there has added enormously
to the value of the lauds t.djacent thereto reserved by the province. Hut It
does. not hold good In the present
Instance. The province has no land adjacent to the Indian reserve In question: it would have no part of the
shore line and would not share In the
acreage contiguous to any townsite lhe
company might eBtabllBh on the lands
It wants to acquire.
Before the government sold to tho
Qrand Trunk Pacific Its present holdings on Kaien Island, the lands thereabout were valueless for any purpose
save that of a railway terminus. They
were unfit for agricultural purposes
and were not known to contain mineral
The government therefore could look
In one direction only for a customer
likely to purchase and whose occupation of a part of the lands would add
value to thc remainder. The government had to deal with a railway company.
Hut railway companies seeking Pacific coast terminals were not by nny
means Bhut up to this or any other location on crown lands: and if the
Qrand Trunk Pacific decided to deal
with private parties whose holdings
were crown granted prior to 1897 the
province could claim no interest in the
tinder the circumstances the govern
ment would have been justified ln of
ferlng very strong Inducements to procure the location of a railway t- s minus
on theso lands. It cannot be denied,
therefore, that the termB of the Kaien
Island deal were the most favorable
the province could hope to secure.
Ab a result of lt, however, the province has ln addition to thc (10,000 obtained from the company 2500 acres of
valuable city and suburban property,
in nnd contiguous to a seaport terminus of a great transcontinental railway; one-quarter of the water front of
the said city and 30.000 acres of land
In the Immediate vicinity thereof.
If, on the other hand, the deal proposed    by    the    Ottawa    government
force any conditions as to its rights
on the water front or on the land adjacent to the townsite that would be
thuB established, and the company
would have the absolute monopoly of
the coast line in that vicinity���say
aboul 80 miles���and of the lands adjacent thereto. In short, the province
would lose all It had gained except the
$10,000 by the Kaien Island transaction
and the company would absolutely control Its terminals and all the lands adjacent thereto.
This contemplated raid on the province of course fully accounts for the
extraordinary activity displayed by the
Ottawa government in the present campaign. The company failing In Its attempt to cajole the premier into giving
away the people's Interest in the coveted lands callB in the aid of Its good
Mand, Sir Wilfrid Laurler, and he and
his government have the hardihood to
embody the demands of the company
in a formal Minute of Council, a copy
of which opens this despatch.
This action is probably without par-
cllel in the hlBtory of Canada for even
the Laurler government, subservient as
It has always been to corporations and
other greedy friends, has probably
never before lent itself to any other
equally barefaced attempt to despoil
the public.
The reply of thc provincial government shows that the premier was fully
alive to the interests of the province
and was not to be intimidated hy the
Implied threats of the Ottawa Oordor-
In-Councll, for there was such an Implied threat. When a Dominion government undeitakes to tell a provincial
government that the public interest of
the province require the latter government to pursue a certain course of action, and when that action is avowedly
Tor the purpose of furthering tho Interests of the pet coriioratlon of that Dominion government, It does not require
much sagacity to Bee that the refusal ot
the provincial government will bring
against It the full political Influence
of the Dominion government and the
full financial power of tho corporation
in question. The premier fully appre-
should  go through,  the  value of this j elated  that fact and  knew lhat if he
suffer defeat by defending the property
of his constituents rather than to buy
Immunity from Ottawa hostility with
the heritage of the people.
His estimate as to the result of his
refusal to far as the activity of the Ottawa government and the railway company is concerned ls fully justified by
events. Sir Wilfrid cannot afford to
to refuse Messrs. Cox and Hays anything they want and as he could not
fully satisfy them with concessions
within the gift of the Dominion government and falling to Induce the premier
to fatten the potlatch with provincial
properties, his emissaries have been
Bent out to persuade the people to defeat the government which has been an
obstacle in the accomplishment of the
plana devised for the benefit of the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway company
Tbat lt Is necessary to his plana
that he should be able to control the
legislature of British Columbia is evidenced by the fact there there ls the
spectacle of judges, governors and
other federal officials, resigning lucrative positions to contest seats in the
provincial legislature. For it ie not
sufficient to the purpose In view that
thc new legislature should contain a
majority of ordinary Liberals, but It
must be dominated by those who have
been trained to feed from the hand and
to yield absolute and unquestionionablo
obedience to the commands of the boss.
The only kind desired are the "machine" variety, and all otherB, In every
instance where It has been poBBlble,
have been turned down.
The question before the electors,
Iherefore In this campaign is not only
one as between the government and
the opposition, but as between a legislature controlled by citizens of BrltlBh
Columbia, and one dominated by
greedy eastern corporations, through
"machine" politicians, who know no
higher law than the command of those
by whose favor they hope to obtain
what would be impossible by their own
unaided exertlonB.

fl harvest of the past year and for material prosperity. It refers to the conference of the premiers of the various
provinces held at Ottawa as a result of
which It is gratifying to observe that
a fair basis of division as between provinces and Dominion was arranged. It
also refers to the bill giving increased
represesntation to Alberta in the house
of commons.
The province haa been honored by a
visit from his excellency Earl Grey,
Lady Grey and family. Attention is directed toward a measure for the establishment within the province of courts
ot Justices. In creased activity In railway construction makes it imperative
that provision be made for uniform law

of the counter-claim, the second against
the verdict and judgment on the main
claim. The re-ult of the appeal is entirely favorable to the defendant on
the points of law; R. M. Macdonald for
appellant, E. P. Davis, K. C, for respondent.
