Commissioners  Are  Slow.
Constantinople, Oct. 4.���Delay on
the part of the Turkish commissioners to sign Ihe report resulting from
the Inquiry Into the frontier dispute
and tbe delimitation of a portion of
llle  vlllayet of Adrtunoplo,  which   led
to a somewhat sharp fight recntly between the soldiers guarding the post
al Sujuk and the, guard on duty at the
Turkish post of the Dervish Mogala,
has brought out practically an ultimatum from Bulgaria fn which that
country deolores that unless lt Is
signed by October 14 the Bulgarian
troops will be ordered immediately to
occupy Sujuk. The inquiry was concluded three weeks ago.

Canadian   Lumbermen   Are   Completely
Turning Tables on American
The recent enactment of laws nt
Victoria reg&nliiiK the rebate on all
lumber exported from this province
has had Lhe effeot of Inducing mill
owners and lumbermen to erect mills
ou this side of the line, saya the Van-
couved World, and the supply of logs
has now become so inadequate that Ca-.
muliiwis are purchasing logs on the
American side ami towing them to
Vancouver and other Canadian cities;
ami iu view of the fact that thousands
of logs are being purchased on the
American side American loggers have
raised the price by fl a thousand.
Considerable has been said about the
Canadian loggers also increasing their
prices by $1 a thousand, but this will
not be done. The price of logs fluctuates with the market, and since the
spring It Is probable that thc price on
uncut logs has been a-dvanced $1 a
thousand, but ihere is no set price on
the logs. There Is no export duly on
American logs and no import duty on
logs coming into Canada, so that In
many cases it is much less expenslve
for millmen to -go to the other side
and buy their logs there. Tbe cost of
tewing the logs Ih about 50 to 7fi cents
a thousand, and the prices here will,
therefore, never lie any more thnn that
much more than American logs. Canadian dealers can go to the other side
of the line and buy any class of logs
nt any time ami bring them Into
Canada without restrictions, and (he
shortage here makes tl imperative that,
the |pn be purchased on the American side.

Chief Justice Holds Railway Company Liable for Any Damages Caused
by Negligence of Agents or Sub-Agents���Many Tilts
Between Counsel.
The action for damages from forest
fires looks likely to last many days.
There Is a dispute as to nearly every
statement of fuct, and frequent controversies among counsel as to questions
of law.
A long argument took place this
morning between Messrs. I Indwell
and Davis as Lo varying degrees of responsibility of masters foi- servants,
and of principals for contractors. His
lordship held, however, agreefng with
.Mr. Davis, that in this case the responsibility ls the same. Many olher arguments took place as to the admissibility of certain evidence.
0, .1. Tultle of Fernie, log scaler,
who was engaged hy the Union bank
lo watch the clearing operations, was
in the box most of ihe day. His -evidence was entirely of fact. He had
been in the vicinity the whole time of
the fires and for some time before. He
testified as to various negligent acts,
ol omission and commission, on the
part of Qualfe, whom he warned.
On his cross-examination by Mr.
Und well his statements were unshaken, but be showed a lack of memory
about many things that occurred at
the same time.
When the case of the Fernie Lumber Co. vs. tbe Crow's Nest, Southern
Hallway company aud Us contractors
was continued yesterday afternoon at
;l o'clock, J. U. Cummings, surveyor,
was called by Mr. Davis.

put in as evidence and told of
his survey In the fall of last year and
of the conditions left by the fires of
the preceding year. There were fires
last year also in the same locality.
To the court witness said lhat the
later fire was nearly all within the
area of the old.
C. J. Tuttic was then called. He
was in the vicinity ln question in June,
July and August of 1904. He knew
Quaife and saw him and his party at
work. He saw the fires started lor a
distance of ;��GU0 feet at once.
Mr. Bod well's objections to tho evidence were overruled.
When court resumed this morning
Tuttle's evidence was continued. He
said that some trees of the right of
way were felled toward the centre of
Uie right of way, some outwards. No
part of the ground was free from inflammable material. During Uie first
tire several barrels, some borrowed
from the witness were kept in readiness. Then lt began to rain and nearly put out the fires but not quite.
Later, the fires became very active
and witness grew anxious and warned
At this point Mr. Davis anticipated
Mr. Hod well's objections and proceeded to argue that evidence was admissible as to Qualfe's being a servant of
Stewart -ft Co. and of the railway company, and that while he may not have
ben authorized to make any admissions, still u warning to him was a
warning   lo   the   other  defendants.
He quoted the judgments of the full
court of Hritish Columbia and the su-
dently bored to quite an extent with
this classical music. As soon as the
violinist, after a few explanatory remarks, commenced the serenade, the
man's face brightened up, and his
eyes remained fastened upon the player, and when the last melancholy note
had died away, as quickly as a flash
tbe cowboy arose and, swinging his
hat in the air, shouted nt the top of
his voice, "Play her again, old man;
play her again!" His request waa

Hot-kin vs. Le Hoi No. 2, to show Uiat
the test of the status of a servant
was supervision and control. He then
read Stewart's contracts to show that
the chief engineer of the rallwny company was in authority,
Mr. Bodwell replied that the evidence was not admissible since Qualfe
wuh not really made a party in the
case, and Mr. Davis had not shown
the responsibility of Stewart & Co.
for acts of Quaife. He argued that
neither the railway company nor
Stewart & Co. could be held responsible for Qualfe's neglect, unless It was
clearly shown that either or both had
exercised  the .right of supervision.
Mr. Bodwell read several Kngllsh
Judgments distinguishing the relations
of principal and contractor from those
or master and servant, and requiring
that actual supervision and control be
actually proved to consulate the relation of master and servant, and that
if the work could have heen done without damage hy Qualfe, the others were
not liable.
Mr. MacNelll also objected, pointing
out the special circumsUinces of the
contracts, described ati "sha-m" hy Mr.
Justice Nesbitt, In Hosklns vs. Le Hoi
No. 2. He also urged that* until It
was proved that the railway company
hail consented to the subcontract the
evidence was not admissible.

Quaife was really a servant, and a
warning to him was a warning to his
masters. Stewart and the railway company. I think also that it should be
held to he the duty of the railway
company to so clear Its land as to injure no one. The evidence ls admissible.
Tuttle was then recalled. Mr. Davis proceeded to Inquire as to precautions taken  by  other subcontractors.
Mr. Bodwell again objected at length
but was overruled, his objection being

Later, he saw fire spreading from
Qualfe's portion of the right of way,

the fires so caused. He then described the extent of the ravages of the

devoted to showing that the witness
knew little of the operations of subcontractors  other  than  Qualfe.
A long and somewhat amusing dialogue between counsel and witness followed as to ihe state of the wind the
morning of the escape of the fires.

expert on winds.
Mr. Hodwell���From his evidence, my
lord, I think he is a wind expert.

there might havo been more than four
water barrels kept   ou    the   right of
The court then adjourned till 2
At 2 p. m. the cross-examination of
Tuttle was continued. He said he was
instructed by the Union bank to
watch and see if any trees were felled
off the right of way. He enumerated
about half a dozen so felled. He did
not know just at what point the fire
first left the right of way. He first
sa-w it leave the right of way between
sections 882 and 883. He did not see
it actually crosB the line of the right
of way.
He did not know how many fires
were burning on the right of way managed by Macdonald, another subcontractor. He did not know that the
whole country was on fire as far as
Morrlssey, nor that hundreds of C. P.
H. men and others were employed
fighting fire that day, nor that much
property waa destroyed in Morrlssey
and elsewhere. He did not know that
Stewart's camp was near with many
men available for fire fighting. He
thought it wuh not so. The camp was
at Lever's cabin, near the mill, where

The witness' memory became uncertain when asked aa to the identity of
the three, four or five of Quaife's men
that he saw at station 920 the morning
of July 23, 1904.
He did not know when Stewart's
camp was established at Lever's cabin. He thought it was only being established at the time of the fire, July
23, but waa not sure it was there on
July It
Mr. Bodwell reproached the witness
for the misleading answers he gave,
and charged that they were characteristic. He accused the witness of
denying by implication that Stewart's
force was available for fire fighting
if needed. Tuttle disclaimed any such
intention, but admitted the possibility
of that result.
Re-examined by Mr. Davis, he said
he knew of no possible source of the
fire other than the right of way. Fires
were not being made anywhere else.
Mr. Hodwell objected to the question
but was overruled.
Tuttle sa4d no fire came that day to
that locality from any other direction.
He knew of no men being called to
aid in fighting fire from Stewart's
camp or elsewhere.
The witness denied having said that
the escape of fire from the right of
way was not due to trees being felled
outwards, although he had so answered Vr. Rodwell a few minutes before.

the Hardie section.
On the other band, a conference of
the railway servants, acting simultaneously at Cardiff, passed a resolution, after a long and bitter debate,
favoring the Hardie section. In spite

Earl Grey Makes Suggestions Leading
to Formation of Company to Capitalize Novel Enterprise.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Initial steps are being taken In Victoria to form a company to exploit the
fruit Industry, secure large tracts of
land, clear tbe same, interest British
capital and bring out English families.
This new enterprise is tbe direct result of a speech by Earl Grey ln which
his excellency said:
"Now, what is necessary. Is to enable hundreds of selected families
from England, aye, and hundreds of
hard working miners in British Columbia, too, to become the owners of these
desirable orchards,
"It appears to me tbat all that Is
wanted Is the establishment of such
an organization as will enable you to
take advantage of your great opportunities. You have the land and all
that is required ls the capital and labor to clear or plant lt.
"The capital required, I believe,
can be obtained. I know men who
would consider lt not only a pleasure
but a privilege to advance capital at
5 per cent, to a well managed organization which would undertake to clear
and plant land and offer It for sale at
small cost to selected families. '
"There Is no Investment which
yields higher dividends, moral as well
as material, than that which brings In
a certain revenue of, say 5 per cent.,
and Ihe feeling of satisfaction or knowing tbat this 5 per cent, has contributed to the upbuilding of a nation. The
required capital can, 1 am confident,
be obtained. It only remains to obtain
the other requisite, that of labor."

Fwly Slamps lo Operation at Ymir Mill.
Manager Hand's Purpose Achieved
After Months oi Preparation���
Cpal Strike Cute off Fuel
The Ymir mine, once the biggest
shipper In Kootenay outside of Boss-
land, shows promise now of recovering
its former prosperous condition.
Tbe discovery of a big, rich ore
body at 1000 feet depth and ln new
ground, has completely restored the
confidence of the owners, and their renewed interest and support have enabled the present manager, E. M.
Hand, to make many Improvements ln
details, effecting in the aggregate very
considerable economies.
While a general policy of improvement was being followed and the new
ore bodies were being thoroughly explored and their extent and Importance demonstrated, Manager Hand
was preparing for a forward move.
In spite of numerous economies he
saw that nothing could decrease the
relatively high cost of treatment unless a considerable Increase In the
tonnage bandied could be made. The
task required time, aa much of the
machinery had been long disused.
Preparations were never allowed to
cease, however, and yesterday morning the mill, for the first time ln near-
Ip five years, was run at Its full capacity of 40 stamps.
Manager Hand arrived In the city
last night, having travelled from Ymir
to Five Mile Point with his brother,
formerly manager of tbe Payne mine,
now of Butte, who bas been called to
examine the Krao mine at Alnsworth.
Asked aa to the progress of the Ymir

well. We began this momlug to run
the .whole of the 40 stamps. For some
time, a very long time, in fact, only
20 have been run.
"We han-e had some good rains lately and can now run the mill by water

"Our supply of coal ts already cut

In the three provinces of Canada
where Conservative governments are
in power there is manifest satisfaction at the policies which are being
enforced. Ontario is being rapidly redeemed from the rule of graft and corruption which was for so many years
a disgrace to the province Premier
Whitney hns completely reversed the
conditions obtaining and has already
won laurels front all classes excepting
the hardened and unscrupulous opposition press. The unfair methods
which have disgraced the relations of
the opposition press to public (pies-
lions has at last called forth the rebuke front Ontario's premier which
they have so justly merited. While
criticising the government's method of
administration, they have been publishing paid advertising matter entirely contradictory of the editorial matter ln their columns. While a newspaper has the right lo sell its advertls-
inging space for any purpose, excepting an admittedly or avowedly Immoral one, the opposition organs in Ontario have not done themselves any credit
by their misrepresentations of the
government's policy. In Manitoba the
case is almost similar. There has
no attempt lo fairly criticise the government but all manner of insinuations and inuencloes have been indulged in with a view to discredit the
Conservative administration.
But it is in Hritish Columbia lhat
the opposition press is driven to such
extremes that positive disgrace Ib
fastened upon it in its endeavors to
malign   ihe   provincial   administration.
ilnce the advent of the McBride ad-
inislration there hus been nothing
too crude or coarse in the way of
political warfare that has not been
indulged In by the political organs opposed to that administration. Fictions
and fabrications without number have
disgraced the opposition sheets and
wholesome criticism, always the function of a decent opposition press, lias
been forsaken for blackguardism of
the vilest kind.
Lofty Journalistic ideals have been
forsaken an the utmost scandal-mon-
gering has been substituted. It does
not appeur to these opposition organs
that there is anything like political
dishonor in their methods, as they appear content to invade the sanctuary
of public confidence by violating every
known obligation to truth.
The result of their malign influence
may be little or great hut It is certainly not In the Interests of Hritish Columbia to have a reptile press engaged
in a warfare of defamation of its chief
ministers, especially when these are
free from blame in the administration
of their various offices.
The desperate haste to attain power
fs not creditable i to the members of
the party that is out and when the
press descends to the level of inventing scandals  and  persistently  repeat
ing them there Js need for a more
healthy moral tone among journalists.
Scandals that cannot be made to stick
should be abandoned for all time and
when men in pubic office are true to
their trusts they should he free from
serious allegations of wrongdoing.
The practice of inventing "rumors" to
discredit public men has reached its
limit in British Columbia. There are
three papers who have been the chief
offenders in this regard and that they
will receive the execration they deserve at the hands ot the public is already begining lo be apparent.
When the Conservative press of
Canada charges the Liberal administration with corruption it makes good
its charges, hut, so far, all attempts to
manufacture scandal by the Liberal
organs has ended in discreditable
liascoes. And there is no province in
Canada that is more free from cause
of complaint than is Hritish Columbia.
Sol until the arrival of the Hedley
Gazette, aad the publication in yesterday's Canadian, did the inhabitants oi
the.city ol Nelson suspect the real
purpose uf the recent holiday of the
editor of Nelson's boastful morning
paper. .Many were the surmises as to
why he touk his holiday just at the
time he did but the cat is now out of
the bag aad it appears ihat the doughty
editor was iu search of a political field
for ihe exploitation of his political ambitions. Having once tasted power,
like the lion who cannot forget the
taste of blood, he is apparently seeking for a constituency, weak enough
to induce him lo offer himself upon
the altar of the country's opposition.
While wu claim no credit for tbe
shrewdness with which the Gazette
sizes up Editor Deane's chances for
election iu the Similkumeeu country
wo are of the opinion that thai paper
is right in regarding him as a political
impossibility in that district, ln fact,
as a political possibility, Deane is a
hack number anywhere. Not only has
the conduct of his paper put him out
of the running, but personally, he is
nut much in favor with the people who
control the funds of the Liberal party,
'flits has he amply shown by the frantic appeals which the Daily News has
made foi* public support during the
last six months.
That the editor of the News intends
to seek the nomination for the Simiikameen diat rlel will come as a matter of small surprise to his friends but
that it will be "stood for" hy members
of his party is another matter. Politics is sometimes a short way out of
trouble but whether it will be so in
the case of the News* editor is not as
yel  a  settled  fact.
There cun be little doubt that Mr.
Deane's friends In the Liberal party
will wish themselves "good-day" before
they endorse ihe candidacy of their
Belf-chosen candidate. When it is
known���as haa so repeatedly been announced���that the publication of a
daily paper is "tt business proposition,
first, last and always" there may be
some hesitation on the part of Liberals
to pay the required price.
Takee Hearst's Measure.
Here is an estimate of Mr. Hearst's
Character from the pen of the editor
of the Norlh American Review: As a
jniirnu'list, though keen, enterprising
and resourceful, he is a burning disgrace to the craft; as a politician,
though shrewd and at times even sagacious, he is no more scrupulous
than the basest of those whom he has
stigmatized as criminals; as a partizan,   though   earnest   tind   efficient  in
appealing lo lhe masses, he is a traitor; as an officeholder he is pre-eminent In shameful neglect of his duties; as an agitator his delight consists
in reveling in the incitement of evil
passions; as a dual personality, though
possessed of many engaging qualities,
lie is so utterly devoid of character,
so unsteady In even his own recklessness, so faithless to his professed
ideals, so .scornfully disregardful of
moral responsibility, so addicted to de-
testable practices in efforts to gratify
his ambitions, so sinfully persistent In
stirring the caldron of discontent, envy and hatted, as to he a living and
glaring reproach to American civilization.
Growth of Democracy,
No careful student of current affairs fu the churches today can fail to
be impressed by the growth of Democracy lu all denominations. And
with that is coming a more real sense
of (he church's opportunity and obligation as regards the whole round of
life in tho whole circle of human re-
la lions. Blunderingly sometimes, bewildered sometimes, aud yet In the
true spirit of sympathy aad helpfulness, the church in one form or another keeps iu touch with the crowd.
Hy that touch both lhe churc.t and the
crowd are saved, the virility of the
crowd going into the enterprises of
religion, and the vision of the church
saving ihe people from decay.���Toronto News on the Methodist conference.

Though the city fathers sat for two
hours and a half last night, they finally adjourned without absolutely fixing
rates for power. The evening was not
wasted, however, as, by the efforts of
the city engineer and city electrician,
the mayor and aldermen finally attained a working knowledge of the
subject of |>ower plants in their commercial aspect.
The difficulty encountered Is complex. It Is essential lhat the revenue
from the plant shall prove a fair return for the city's Investment; the
charge for power must not he too
great for the consumers to pay; the
bylaw passed on 1902 has fixed a rate
which cannot be adopted. The solution
will probably be found ln the adoption
of a schedule, not violating but Interpreting bylaw 122, and meeting, as far
as possible, the first two conditions.
The council met at 8, Mayor GIHett
In the chair, and Aldermen Hume, Selous, Irving, Rose and KIrpatriek present.
In reply to the mayor, W. P. Dickson gave 750 horsepower as the requirement of Uie city for all present
purposes, including motors now in use.
A. L. McCulloch gave 1000 horsepower as the immediate capacity of
the plant, allowing for every possible
loss. The final capacity of the four-
unit plant would be 6000 horsepower,
according to the accepted plans. Calculating depreciation at 2% per cent
and 5 per cent., according to material,
he estimated the cost to the city, at
the substation, on a coat of $200,000
for interest purposes, at $29.07^ per
year, plus $3.75 within the city, a total
of $82.8236 per horsepower. He allowed $7000 per year for operating expenses at lhe plant. His estimate
would be affected by a victory {pr the
city-on appeal to the privy council,
and also by any increase In the number of horsepower produced by adding
other units.
If 1000 horsepower were developed
anil used, Mr. McCulloch said, the
cost per horsepower would be $20.87Vis
per year. He expected that three men
would  be employed  at the plant.
A long discussion followed on the
siriking of rates. It was suggested
���hat $.i per month be fixed. There
was then a gttestion as to what proportionate charge should he fixed for
users for 10 or 12 hours a day.
W. P, Dickson had prepared a schedule, which gave $4.90 per horse power per month for a single horsepower
motor, wiih a graded scale for larger
motor users.
W. P. Dickson���lt will pay the
smallest motor user to take electric
power at $3 per horsepower per
month as a minimum rate. That is
far below the Spokane rate.
Alderman Rose���And then make a
slight reduction���say 25 per cent.���
for those who use It only for part of
the time?
W. P. Dickson���Yes.
Alderman  Selous contended that $3
a  month  should   he  the minimum  return to the city    per horsepower   for
the ordinary 10-hour day.
W. P. Dickson���That is a very low
rate. There is no ground for any one's
expectation that Nelson can sell power cheaper than all other places. There
need not, however, be a very great increase for longer use In the 24 hours.
Alderman Selous moved that tlte
rate bylaw be Interpreted, for a 10-
hour service, n-s follows:
Per month.
First h. p., per h.  p  $5.00
Additional h. p. to 5, per h. p...   3.50
Additional over 5 to 50, per h. p.   3.00
No vote was taken, as It was thought
some  modifications  might yet  be  re-
j quired.   The mayor suggested that the
J city  clerk be instructed  to communicate with present motor users and ask
how many horsepower they would take
respectively  at    rates    approximately
those suggested, and to intimate that
the city would not be prepared to furnish   water   power  after the   electric
power plant Is completed.
With such an understanding the
council adjourned until October 15.

This number is especially fitted for

not only sing tbe pari but looks it as
well. It was this song that won for
Miss Ferguson the diamond medal of
the Chicago Musical college.
