As to Good  or Evil Results
Suffrage in  Aust alia���Pre
to the Rescue.
London. Jan. 8.���Apropos of the Suffragette movement, several papers have
been at pains to point out that the
granting of woman's suffrage In certain states In Australia has been followed with disastrous results���the demoralization td' political Issues no less
than the demoralization of male voters
The papers voicing these sentiments
have received a communication from
the Rev. W. A. Hobson. a Congregational minister, who has just returned
from a journey through Australia. He
declares thut the women who vote there
aro not partisans, "but always make
for a clear moral issue, and refuse to
support any party which refuses to
make pro eminent, not financial considerations, but national and civic morality."
"During the five years 1 resided in"
Queensland," the writer continues, "the
women's vote decided the question as
to shop closing and eight hours per
day labor, with the result that the people do just as much shopping before
fi p. m. as they do In Kngiand before
9 or 10 p. m_ and the people, young
and old, are free for healthy amusement
and recreation. A farther result la a
minimum   of  crime  and   immorality.
"Again, the Australian won .1 recently supported ;i bill, which v, . carried, forbidding betting on the race
course and everywhere else, also excluding betting tips from all newspapers.
"Heforo this last measure Sydney and
Melbourne were inundated with tlps-
sters and bookmakers, children received a holiday from school on race
days, and the governmenl encouraged
betting through a government totalizator. Tho simps of bookmakers are
now closed, the newspapers cleansed.
and war to tho knife is being pursued
by the women ngainst this evil, Intern-
pi ranee  and  all  social  evils.
"1 am a radical," tho writer says in
closing, "but I am astounded at the
shortsightedness and folly which checks
a true democratic movement. 1 say
emphatically, give the women the vote."

Counsel   for    Thaw    Summons   Former
Witnesses for Prosecution to
Swear  to   Insanity.
Now York, Jan. S.���The defence in lhe
case of Harry K. Thaw sprang the first
groat surprise of tho second trial today
by announcing that it had Issued subpoenas for several of the expert win
new Be a who testified for the prosecution at tho first trial, and who, when
District Attorney Jerome applied for a
lunacy commission, made affidavit that
in their opinion Thaw, at the time of
the inquiry, was suffering from an incurable form of insanity.
It is undoubtedly the intention of Mr.
Littleton, the new chief counsel for the
defense, to interrogate and draw from
those mon the opinion that Thaw was
also insane at the Unit* of the homicide,
and then t<> limit all testimony as to the
defendant's mental condition to the immediate period of the tragedy. If buc
cessfu] in this the defense would foro*

mental condition during lhe summer ot
Lunch recess was ordered in lhe Thaw
trial ai i*pW p. m., wilh three sworn and
six provisional jurors In the hex.
Predictions were freely made at the
beginning of this the third day ot the
trial of Harry K. I'haw tl .tt a jury will
not   be  secured before  tbe  middle  or
latter pert Of ne\t week. There were
but three sworn jurors In the box when
court OOnvehed ftl 10.4*3 and they repro-
. tiled the net proceeds of the lirst two
panels Of 100 talesmen each. The third
and lasi panel of the SOO originally sum-
tnoiacd this morning and it was not
thought that it would I'urnisJ. all tlu
material needed to complete the twelve
As a result the court ordered that 801
talesmen be summoned to report tomor
row and Friday. At the lirsi trial souk
7:'.u talesmen were examined before a
satisfactory jury was empanelled.
Rome, Jan. b.���Tho Tribune, in an
article on the cruise of the American
battleship fleet to tho Pacific, expresses tho opinion that President Roosevelt
perhaps was mistaken in view of the
excitement it has aroused In the United
States, both on the part of the people
and the press. The paper quotes Baron Takahjra, the Japanese minister
to Italy, as saying:
"The Japanese government loyally
maintains its promise to do everything
possible to diminish the immigration to
America, aa we have no net- tf s-'r-d
oft our superfluous population even alter the war. Japanese emigration,
much tho same as all alien emigration.
has been the result of special conditions in certnln regions, and it has been
augmented by the desire to seek better
oupnrtunities and the desire for adventure, and in addition. Intending emigrants have heen ably seconded hy the
agents of navigation companies. Although I am lacking official news 1
know that tho relation-s between Japan and the I'nited States are excellent. The despatch of the American
tteet to the Pacific cannot more than
merely interest us. San Francisco being thousands of miles away from Japan."
Toklo, Jan. S.���In connection with the
successor df Viscount Aoki as Japanese
ambassador at Washington, the Associated Press has heen informed that, the
Japanese embassy at Washington was
instructed a week ago to formally notify
the state department of the selection of
Baron Takahira, at present Japanese
ambassador to Italy, and to ask if he
would be acceptable. No reply has yet
been received and the foreign office attributes the delay to the pressure of
business at Washington, lt does not
believe there will be the slightest hesitation on the part of the American government  in accepting  Baron Takahira.

aud we think that America should allow us to show that we are willing and
able  to  rectify  them."
The despatch of tho memorandum was
the last official act of the Japanese government in the year 1907. This Is considered to be a significant desire on the
part of the governmenl to begin the
year 190S under better auspices. In
fact, an official of the Japanese government said: "We have every reason io
believe that the details or our admlnis-
tiatlon and future control of the emigration question will be satisfactory to
the American government. While doubtless some changes will be mode before
the matter Is finally disposed of, we
are of the opinion that the last official
act of li>07 will make tho dawn of 1908
blighter in both countries."
Paris. Jan X.���The Echo de Paris today prints an interview emanating, it
suys. from an '* authorized Japanese
source," with the object of showing that
Japan is so absorbed with the mainland
of Asia that war with America is impossible.
"The entire attention of Japan** says
the Interview, "is occupied with China
and Korea where developments are occurring. China has just dismissed a
number of Japanese instructors, who
have hern replaced with Germans. Thn
Manchurlan situation Is full or complications. China demands the immediate
int< gral application of the treaty of
Portsmouth, which would deprive -lapan
of tho possibility of exercising an of-
fi< ions Influence fn   Manchuria."
Japan opposes the extension of the
Pekin railroad to Foukin by way of
Shiumintu on the ground that the Pekln
agreement of 190a stipulated that China
.should not construct a parallel line injurious to Japanese interests. The Japanese occupation of Korea also is meeting with much opposition and for this
sud other reasons Japan is actively
pushing the woik uf im reaslng her
armaments. The message of lhe Kra-
peror of Japan clearly indicates that
the country is lc-oking to the far oast,
and  not   in the direction of America.

Tokio, Jan. 8.���The Japanese government handed to tho United States Ambassador O'Brien a memoramdum containing a reply to the suggestions of-
ered by the United States government
some weeks ago. whereby the American
government sought a friendly way to
assist Japan in perfecting plans for the
future restriction of Immigration, thus
effectively avoiding a possibility of friction over the question.
While the eontents of the memorandum are carefully guarded both at the
Japanese foreign ofiiee and tho American embassy, there is reason to believe
ihat the memorandum is couched in the
mosl friendly terms, and that, while it
accepts some of the American Suggestions, It declines others as incompatible
with the dignity of Japan, and outlines
plans for further restriction of emigration to America.
The memorandum has been cabled to
Washington, from where It Ib possible
a counter suggestion will be forihcoin
ing. but il is intimated that Japan plans
and now determines to demonstrate Its
ability to effectively prevent the emigration of laborers who are needed in
the development of Japan. The com
eensus of opinion of Americans in Japan shows confidence lu the sincerity
of the Japanese government and its
* om potency to control emigration as
well as its desire to maintain friendly
i elnt Ions  whh   Americana.
It Is pointed out, that the concessions
to Canada limiting emigration to thai
country, is a part oT its entire -scheme
of control because Vancouver afforded
an opportunity for large numbers of
Japanese to cross the border Into the
United Stales.
A promiuen! Japanese official said
t oday:
"It matters' not whether America
controls emigration from Japan or Japan controls emigration to America.
"Difficulties must arise in administration. Japan is now coping with n
difficult situation, resulting from mis-
lakes of Its own administration in the

Paris, Jan. S.���There is being exhibited at the Galerie des Machines a
new airship invented by Baron Kdmond
de Marcay and the l-utch engineer, M.
Kluytmans. The inventors believe that
one of the points which had hitherto
made it difficult to obtain perfect stability in an airship was the fact that
the propellers were attached to the
frames a considerable distance below
the centre of gravity, and. at all events,
some fifteen or twenty yards below the
centre of the balloon.
When at rest the airship thus possessed a certain equilibrium, but the
moment the propellers were started.
stability was also displaced, and airships became difficult to handle in an
ordinary calm, a difficulty which was
increased by any sudden variation in
tho wind or current of air. The idea
of the inventors, therefore, was to
fix tbo propeller In the centre of tho
balloon in such a way as to bear always on the centre of greatest resistance, and the airship which they aro
now exhibiting was intended to demonstrate tho practicability.
The balloon, which Is about the size
Of the ill-starred Patrie. carries a rigid
frame in tho centre, and is divided into
two parts, fore and aft, of about equal
size. The propeller is attached to the
frame in tho centre of ihe balloon.
and revolves like two immense arms,
describing a circle of larger diameter
than that of the balloon. The motor,
of course. Is in a separate frame below tho balloon, and tbe power is transmitted to the 1'ropeller shaft by means
of  a  belt.
The new airship has been Inflated.
and the trials, so far as they could
be carried out in tho Galerie des Machines, have appeared to justify the
claims of tho inventors. All thnt now
remains Is to give It n fair trial in
the open air. In the technical details
the designers have boon assisted by
the well known aeronaut, M. Paul Le-
Niagara Falls. Ont., Jan. 8.���The body
of 11. Grey Duberley, a young man who
committed suicide in Now York, leaving
a letter addresssed to Earl Grey, governor-general, and to Miss Hampshire Of
this city, has been identified as that ot
a Grand Trunk freight clerk, tor three
yeais employed in the local offices here,
and who has boon missing for the past
week with an alleged shortage in accounts of about $000. He was a refined
young fellow with one failing, a tendency to drink, and had a great many
friends in this city. The unhappy life
mentioned In his letter to his father
was only known to his closest friends
of whom  Miss  Hampshire was  one.
Toronto, Jan. 8.���Rev. Dr. Carman,
general superintendent, and Rev. Dr.
Sutherland, secretary ot missions, of
the Methodist church, have gone to New
York to attend a joint committee on

delegates from tho Methodist chur:h of
Canada and the Methodist Episcopal

Hamilton, Jan. S.���John Thonker.
president of the street railways men's
union, was discharged yesterday. The
company claims that Theaker was carrying passengers trot? of charge, bnt the
men aro inclined to <hink that the dismissal is due to Theaker. The mayor
and president of the trades and labor
council have been appealed to. There
may be trouble.
Paris, Jan. 8.���The French convict.
Gal Uy, who, it may be recalled, was
sent to the French penal settlement at
Guiana a couple of years ftgO for robbing the Oj-mptoir d'Escompte, recently died on his return to France. At the
time of his death he was engaged in
wilting memoirs of prison life. These
nnraoirs are now being sought for by
the French press. They throw a flood
ot light ui��on the French prison system
in the colonies..
According toGallay. the French penal
settlement is hades for tiie convicts who
have not acquired notoriety, for those
whose crime has faileu to interest the
public, and whose condemnation has
passed unnoticed. These unfortunate
criminals are sent out to perform tude
tasks under a broiling sun, to make
roads, clear tbe bush, and build fortifications. They are devoured by insects,
harassed by inhuman jailers, and the
hardships they endure may be guessed
at from the statement made by Gallay
that, out of 600 convicts who arrived In
Guiana from Fiance last July, only 50
are now alive. The remainder died from
illness, privations, or cruel treatment.
Another statement which seems almost incredible is that while in August last the penal settlement counted
37,000 convicts, today there are only five
or six thousand. The others, have succumbed to the climate or the rigors of
the terrible life they are obliged to lead.
But the other class of convicts, the illustrious criminals, the authors of sensational crimes or audacious robberies
���those whose exploits have occupied
columns in the newspapers and had been
talked about for weeks, these are well
looked after and carefully attended to.
They are taken to the lies du Saint, a
veritable Eden, where life is anything
but harsh, and are given light tasks in
tho prisons. If they are well behaved
and have sufficient influence, they are
pretty sure to obtain a reduction of
their sentence, or it is modified���as in
Gallay's case���so that thev may return
to France and finish their term in one
of the comfortable establishments main
tsdned for those who have been guilty
of what in France is enphenil*itically
called an "indellcatesse."

It is often said that Ihe German already pays taxes on everything, from
religion to cigarettes and from salt to
nvj'or-cars. The grumblers say that
tha* air they hreathe Ib the only thing
that Is free. But an imperial deficit
of .��8.000.000. largely on account of the
greatly increased naval and military
outlay (which will amount to .C6:i,000,-
000 in 1908,1 has to be faced, and fresh
sources of revenue must be found.
The Garman pays taxes to the city
in which he lives, to the state in which
the city is situated, and finally to the
Imperial government. State Income tax
amounts, as a rule, to live or six per
cent, of his earnings. He pays also
an '���industrial tax" on his business,
about 25 per cent, of the amount he
pays In Income tax: a tax on trade
turnovers of more than ��20,000 yearly;
a supph'Uientary taax on non-income-
producing property; a tax for the support of tho state Kvangelieal church; a
tax on his dogs, and a tax on sales of

Paris. Jan. 8.���According to statistics, the French people in the last century or so have made away with fl,-
6-58,600,000 in actual spa^cie, and no one
knows where tt has gone. It is calculated that the total amount of gold,
silver and bronze coin which should
have been In circulation ��*n 1906 was
$3,056,600,000. The oldest gold pieces
now current in France date buck to
1803 and tbe silver to 1852. Iu the circulation full account has been taken of
all the moneys withdrawn bv the mint.
All allowances made, lt has been found
that tbe above figure is that of the currency which should have been extant fn
France last year.
By a computatitm, particulars of
which are not given, it has been determined that the amount of money In
circulation at present in France is worth
only *1,39S ,000.000, comprising, roughly.
$960,000,000 gold, $400,000,000 silver,
and the rest bronze coin. The deficit
reaches accordingly lhe figure-given
above. Where have these*, millions
Accidents, fires, shipwrecks, the Indemnity paid to Germany after the year
1870-71, account for a portion estimated
at a fourth. How has the remainder
disappeared? Exports of coin are,
roughly speaking, compensated by imports of foreign money. Have the
French people some $1,000,000,000 In
cash hoarded up secretly somewhere, for
which the statistics cannot account?
Vesuvius' Cone Collapsed.
Naples, Jan. S.���Following a number
of heavy detonations yesterday, a portion of the cone of Mount Vesuvius
sank within the crater, causing great
internal ebullitions. An enormous column of smoke arose from the crater
and spread out for miles. President
F. MatteucI, director of tho observatory,
said there was no danger of a new eruption, the sinking of the cone heing
merely a geological   phenomenon.

Wednesday,   January  8.   1908.
The executive committee of the -".-
000 club are to he congratulated on t-he
decision to re-oomjnend a change of
name for Uiul urbanization. The name
20,000 club undoubtedly prevented many
who aro as zealous us the best for the
promotion Of Nelson's interests from
associating themselves with the work.
Publicity Bureau is intelligent and In*
teillgtblO) RDAsuggesta the character oi
the work contemplated.
After the vieissitudes ol two ft an
the club is now in a position to do ieall\
effective work, and the experience gain
ed by those who huvu sc> tar borne the
burden will be invaluable in the future.
Durfig 1907 the club has done very
valuable work. Alter Vancouver and
Victoria, Nelson is now better and more
widely known than nny other city in
Hritish Coolumbia- That is due parti}
to the enterprise shown iu sending exhibits to fairs in the various citie-fl of
Canada and Great Britain, partly to the
Influx of settlers to the orchard laud-?
of the West Ann. and partly to tbe reports carried away by visitors, of the
delightful climate, of natural beaut lea
and of rare sport with rod und gun. And
bettlers and tourists have both been al
traded by the efforts of the club.
What has been accomplished is really
remarkable in view of the fact Unit tin
club h_H been crippled for the whole
year by lack of funds and pressing Ha
bilities. Under the circumstances the
report which President Procter has been
able to present to the executive is far
more   gratifying   thau   any   one   had   a
right to expect
Ah to the future, it Is not to Ih
thought of thai the work should be drop
ped. Nelson, as a corporate community'
lias assumed heavy burdens, whicli
could be justified only by confidence ii
it great, healthy aud permanent growth
The burdens cannot be reduced without
the icrlflce Di ail the city's ambitions.
The only rational course tot the future,
then, in tu Lncreaao, ralher than diminish, efforts to attract others here to
enjoy the advantages ol life in Nelson
aud to help to pay their cost. The only
sure way uf achieving that end is for
the citizens as a whole, not only land
agents or those with mineral or timber assets to dispose of, but all who
have a substantial interest, as tax-pay*
��� is. iu seeing the city's wealth and
population grow and taxation reduced,
entering on a serious and whole-hearted
campaign to make Nelson's attractions
known everywhere.
An effort is to be made to have the
in. ana lor that campaign furnished by
all the taxpayers collectively through
Ui medium or the city council. That
maj be the most satisfactory, it Is certainly the most convenient, way to se-
'iii,��� the Bhanclal support required.
There will probably be opposition on
ihe ground that the city's annual expenditure is already too high. But there
is no use arguing in a circle. There
are only two alternatives lor Nelson:
��� it he i" to shorten sad and be content
with slow growth or none, or lo cheerfully accept all the burden and re-ohe
lo bear il In the hope of rapid progress
that will su Increase the number of ratepayers that the burden on each will be
lightened. The LSSUS is clear. The one
thing thai cannot go on is the feeble and
comparatively Ineffectual effort made
by a few with little sign even of sympathy from the majority.
How generally the progress of Japan
is appreciated throughout the world Is
well indicated hy the Importance attached to every utterance of her public
men, official or unofficial, and the prom
iuence given to It in telegraphic news.
At 0_e stride .lapan has stepped into
the circle of the great world powers.
Her voice cannot be ignored on any
subject in which she has a legitimate
interest. The people of the United
States and the Hritish colonies are already .realizing that if they elect to prevent or restrict Japanese Immigration
it must be on economic grounds lhal
can be justified against any race, and
that the fiction of racial Inferiority can
no longer he maintained. The Japanese have shown themselves overwln 1m-
ingly superior in war to one white race.
and they arr contesting for commercial
and industrial supremacy with all the
rest on equul terms,
