Polar Congress.
Washington, April 20.���Herbert L.
Itiidgeinnn. of Brooklyn, has been designated as the United States government
delegate to participate in an International polar congress to be held next
month in Brussels. The object of Ihe
congress Is stated to be to unite the
nations in planning and carrying out
some practical scheme to reach the-
north pole.
Ottawa, April 20 ie puVk itiou of
the appendices to the ��� eport ot the civil
service commission is still lurnlshing
the capital with the livesl topic oenver-
sation. One of the most amusing features  is   the   recoid   ot   the   wholesale
purchase of buoys.
From east and west the agents uf
the department began to represent that
they had uol room to store the buoys
as last us they came, while the department al Otuiwu kept Insisting thai
there should be uumeruus spare buoys
at the stations. The British Columbia
agent hoped "no more buoys would be
s.lipped to ihe coast until we are in a
position to place iliem." Nevertheless
more were seut. as, to quote the royal
commission report, "the department is
evidently determined to make the B.
l.'. agency the dumping ground for all
the buoys Wlllsou call wheedle them
into buying, whether they are wanted
ro   not."     (Page   163.J
Meanwhile some buoys were going
adrift some were out of order, aud
some were lyiug at the depot. At one
tune the Victoria agent had six of
Wiilson's gas beacons and four of his
buoys ou a C. P. K. wharf, wilh only
one steamer to handle them, and begged that more be sent, IPuge 102.J Yet
seven day j later he was instructed that
nine more beacons were ubout to be
forwarded. In another three nionlhs orders weie given to ship IU more at $���<
000 each. The department paid $0.55u
for a buoy which was sent to Prescott and remained there, apparently,
for a year. Willson then had an order
from Brazil for one of that type and
had none ready. The department kindly traded off this one for two $5,000
buoys, which Willson had on hand, and
and then paid him the difference. Tbe
commissioners say that the government
got neither discount nor bonus from
this deal, and adds "the eagerness
of some of the officials of the department to serve the company in this matter without consideration for the government was quite remarkable." (Page
165.) Hy June 13th, 1907. the department had paid $S25,650 to Wiilson's
company for 201 gaB and whistling
buoys, and $27,000 additional for 18
beacons, with other payments for material and numerous orders ahead. "It
would almost look," say the commissioners, "as if lhe I. M. S. Company
were regarded by the department as a
branch of the department of marine,
aud a favored one at that."
The officials have recommended Will-
son's apparatus to the llritish and United States governments us highly satisfactory at Ihe same time that they were
receiving protests and complaints from
Offlolala all ulong  the line.
There Is u long uecounl of proceedings reaped lug Morln shoal. The shipping federation asked for a lightship,
but an acetylene buoy- with bell and
whistle attachment, was bought rrom T.
L. Willson and placed on the spot. As
the matter was urgent, Mi. Willson
wus to have the buoy ready In thirty
days. It was delivered ln four months
Prom October 9th to November 10th
the Willson buoy was on the shoal.
The local superintendent of buoys had
reported It unsuitable before it was purchased. There were many eon,plaints
afterward, und ufter six weeks' use the
department decided to replace it with
a lightship.
A similar story Is told of the hand
Hug and repairs of the Antlcosti light
ship, which coat 186,800 In three years,
nnd was In hospital most or the time.
The commissioners say that this was
a conspicuous case of "how not to do
Our old friend. Merwin, does not fig
ure by name extensively In this report,
but it Is shown lhat Chler Engineer
Anderson has strenuously protested
against throwing out efficient light
house equipment and replacing ll with
costly Imported apparatus recommended by the department.    The engineer
plainly   suggests   that   the   cry   against
| the Canadian lighthouses hus been rais
ed by makers of lanterns "simply so
that they could supply their own more
expensive style of manufacture." The
particular order against which he protested was for about $20,000 worth of
lanterns for half a dozen lighthouses.
It should be recalled that Mr. Merwln's
iii in:- have been paid fully $100,000 by
the marine department for buoys,
lights and other equipment.
E. A. Wallberg, better known In connection with the railway contracts, is
represented by the commissioners as
having things much his own way with
the department of marine. He secured contracts without competition for
several steel concrete lowers, three of
them because he was the only person
able to do the work thut seuson. Not
one of these was finished until the following year. Mr. Walberg haa a habit
Of writing personally to the officers of
the department asking consideration of
all the authorities until Chief Engineer
Anderson again interposed with the
statement that there was no patent, and
lhat the Walberg method hud long prevailed In concrete buildings. But for
this protest the royalty would have
been added to the cost of the numerous
lowers which Walberg seems likely to
Construction  Work at  Prince  Rupert  Ib
Actually Begun���Influx of Settlers Is   Rapid.
Hnru:*' Kupert, April 20.���Tho fir-st
subcontract fur construction work on
tlie main line ol the Urariti Trunk Pacific railway In Biltiali Columbia, waa
let by J. VV. Stewart, managing member in Canada ot Foley, Welch and
rite wail, to Messrs. Kuua and Carlson,
who have just completed contractu lu
double-! racking the C. P. R. between
Kenora and F6rt William. This contract is lor the lirst mile on the road
trom Prince Rupert eastward, on which
the work will be very heavy, principally rock work, aud they have one year
to complete it.
The lirst bluff, just west of Centre
Btreet, contains about 75,000 cubic yards
ot' rock, all of which will be taken out
and used for lilliug in tide Hats and
ground used lor u.-i .ninal tracks. This
station is made up of a series of rock
bluffs, and is considered a choice piece
of work. Active operations will be begun on Monday morning, and Ross and
Carlson estimate they can give steady
employment to 200 men for a year.
Work would have been started at once
but for lhe weather, which for the past
week has been the roughest and dirtiest of any during tbe winter months.
itain fell in torrents, then turned to
slush-snow, aud terrific winds prevailed
all the time. *
The 200 Swede laborers brought here
tor construction work, who have been
accustomed to the clear, cold atmob-
phere of western Ontario, grumbled,
were disincliued to tackle work in such
a climate, and Uie contractors had hard
work to hold them. The last two days
have been perfect, and prospects for
continued fine weather are good.
The Camosun arrived this morning
with 200 passengers and a very heavy
cr.rgo, also a carload of beef catile for
L. Morrow & Co., and nix heavy draught
horses for Kltamaat, consigned to Hars-
ton and Angus Stewart, and will be
used in construction work on their subcontract. These are the first horses
landed on Kaien Island, und are temporarily stabled In a large tent on the

few days a restaurant will be doing
business. Xew tent-houses are being
put up every day, several are now under construction, and each boat from
the soutb brings new residents who lose
no time in securing permits to occupy
a lot there, even though it is only temporarily.

Montreal, April 20.���The police are
looking for C.H. Ferguson, a well known
contractor of Spokane, Wash., who has
some contracts in Montreal. He has
been writing to his wife at her home
on Windsor Hotel paper and when she
got tired of living slone and came here
she naturally went to the Windsor hotel
and asked to be shown her husband's
room, but from tbe cab stand elicited
the information that the cabbies knew
her husband well, and had often driven
"them" borne. "Them," Mrs. Ferguson
found was her husband and another
lady. She went to the house indicated
and walked right Into the flat occupied
by her husband and a lady, whom she
recognized as the divorced wife of John
Roche, a well known citizen of Spokane.
She made no fuss then, and the husband promised an explanation later. All
this happened on Sunday.
When she, not hearing from the husband, went to the flat again, she found
the pair out and took possession of.it,
and all the clothes and belongings, demolished a number of expensive pictures of the woman who had taken her
place. Some of the husband's ttwuris
tried to frighten her away by representing themselves as policemen, but
she held tbe fort against all comers,
and bas Issued a warrant for the arrest
of her husband.
Steel Corporation Meeting.
New York, April 20.���The Wall street
district Is manifesting considerable Interest ln today's annual meeting of th*
stockholders ot the United States Steal
Corporation. The interest is due largely
to the recent reports that Pittsburg
stockholders ln the corporation are to
demand the removal of William E. Corey
from the presidency on the ground that
he is not competent to be head of the
great corporation ln times ot adversity. Wall street is inclined to take
these reports ot antagonism to President Corey with a grain of salt, and ln
the opinion of the majority of the prominent financiers Mr. Corey will be reelected to the presidency with little or
no opposition when the time cornea. 1 **3 Daily Canadian

Monday,   April   20,   1908.
All Canada is waiting expectantly for
the announcement of the dissolution ol
parliament aud Uie ilxiug of the date
tui lhe general elections. There is a
general recognition of tlie fact that the
present parliament haa exhausted any
mandate it ever received trom the electorate, and that there can he no definite
measure of reconstruction in auy department ol Canadian lile until either
Sir Wilirid Laurier's authority ls again
renewed or a Conservative ministry ls
Installed In power.
In nearl] even constituency in Basts
era Canada candidates lor hoth parties
are already in ihe Held and the campaign is begun, which can not be lor-
iiiinaled or interrupted until it ends iu
the general campaign. This is not a
healthy condition of affairs. The responsibility for it rests entirely with the
A system often advocated for Canada
Is that by which elections should take
place at intervals fixed by law, independently of the party in power, as ls
the custom in the United States. It
His so far not answered badly where
the executive is not really responsible
to congress and acts quite independently of It. So long as Congress Is in general agreement with the policy of the
president no harm results. But several
times, notably during drover Cleveland's last administration, the executive became hopelessly out of touch
wilh the legislative body.
The Canadian system with all it.-, defects of uncertainty and of the opportunity for unfair manipulation, has still
ti,H merit of providing for readjustment
at any time in the lac- of an evident
change of popular sentiment. All that
is required to make its operation '-it
tirely fro- from criticism is that the
premiers, Dominion aud provincial,
should exercise their rlglns with due
regard for the public interest. The
business community as a whole has the
chief title to consideration.
A unique practice has been Inaugurated by Premier Whitney ol Oman.,
In frankly taking not only the legislature but tne whole province Into his
confidence on the question of the date
of his next appeal. Ot this practice and
its probable results tlie Montreal Star
"Mr. Whitney's frank announcement
to the Ontario legislature ot the Btate
Of his mind, regarding the date ot the
coining provincial elections, is an example which might prolltauly becomi
a precedent It Is true that he has
not named the date; but he has told
the house that he himself does not yet
know il���which Is something worth
learning���and has added that it will beat on,, of two fairly definitely defined
times. It Is unfortunate that his knowledge was not a little more certain on
the occasion when he broke through the
old custom of secrecy and liver] up to
his own  record for frankness;  but still
A general meeting of the shareholders of the imperial Coal & Coke Company, Limited, will be held at tin of-

Per Geo.  Pyke, Secretary.
it ls a great step ln advance to get even
this much from a premier before "dissolution" Is actually announced.
"We will now see whether the constitution will suffer any very severe
wrench from this revolutionary departure. If It survives this attack upon
ancient custom, it tu-gnt possibly be
judged strong enough to endure this
sort of early announcement of intention on the part of tbe prime minister
whenever the time draws near for an
appeal to the people. The example
might even spread as far as Ottawa:
and we could then escape from the reign
ot surprise dissolutions in our Federal
politics as well. There was an approach
to it last year when tne premier was
said to have promised the K-ailt r of the
opposition that there would be another
session before dissolution; but it would
have been much nearer to the Whitney
case if the announcement bad been
made openly in parliament in the bearing of th,' whole people. After all, it
is ihe people who are chiefly concerned
in being abundantly forewarned of the
approach of au election, and not the
leader or a rival "team" who is going
to plai tin,- game of politics with the
premier on  that occasion.'
Speaker   Cannon     Declares    that   Tariff
Has  Not  Made   Paper Dear.
Washington, April 20.��� lu the event
that the attorney general does not soon

Dated at Nelson, this 9th day of
March 1908.
Owing   to   Difficulty   of   Procuring  Supplies  Close  Season  Declared.
Letters dated March 21 have Just
arrived from Ingenica this week, and
report the arrival there on March 10 of
the parties who discivered the creek
last fall, and who left here with several other prospectors with a summer's
supplies by dog tean; on January 15,
About 15 miners are now on the creek
and us many more are en route there
from Hazelton, the majority of whom
came   in   from   the   outside.
At that date no work had heen done
on the claims, apart from staking and
leeoiding. No gold has yet been taken out since the pan of the prospect
last   fall   by   the   discoverers.
A general shortage of provisions and
tools exists and miners have asked the
gold commissioner here to warn all
progpectivQ stampeders of Uie necessity
of taking wilh them sufficient provisions for the round trip. A petition
was sent the gold commissioner asking
for a closed working season this coming summer, on account ot the shortage of necessities and the uncertainty
of there being pay gravel sufficiently
rich to justify the incurring of the
heavy expense of putting in a working
outfit under tbe present difficult transportation conditions. The gold commissioner has granted the request, and
the open season has been set for June
25, 1909.
The creek on which the claims are
staked is in flood, making ground sluicing difficult. Some prospectors anticipate difficulty in sinking on account of
the wet nature of the ground. The
snow is going rapidly, making It well
nigh impossible to reach Ingenika before June, when there should he sufficient feed to enable horses to make the

St. Johns, Nfld., April 20.���Bringing
tidings of the sinking of the steamer

the serious injury of several others by
Ice floes, the steam sealer Newfoundland ilmped inter port yesterday, leaking badly. The Nowioundlund's bowls
and stern were crushed by ice, and
her crew of two hundred men were
forced to stand by for many hours,
pumping and bailing.
The Grand Lake met with disaster
last Sunday. She was shut up between
two great Ice floes until her Bides caved
in and even her engines were crushed.
She floated only three hours, but her
214 escaped to the steamer Vanguard,
which was close by.
A catch of 20.OU0 seals went down
with the Grand Lake. The cargo was
valed at $130,000, and was insured.
The steamers Iceland and Ranger
were also badly crushed by the ice, but
were kept afloat until temporary repairs were made.
The steamer Algerine ls also badly
