Great Proconsul Leres
Maker of Modem Egypt Says Farewell to Scene of His Lift Work
���Advice to Natives.
Cairo, May 28���Lord Cromer's farewell speech in Ihe opera house, Cairo,
was a remarkable declaration of his
liolicy, delivered in spite of physical
weukness und the emotion of a scene
ln which all the Eurojieun and Egyptian
officials took part.
"I am leaving," said Lord Cromer,
"not for any political reasons, but because tbe hand of time has begun to
press hard upon me, and I think I am
entitled to a rest." Replying tu the
eulogies of Lady Cromer by the Comte
de Serionne, director of the Suez canal,
and Mustapha Pasha Fehmi, he said:
"I felt a strong desire to change places
with the speakers. 1 should have preferred to eulogize Lady Cromer."
Then he named those with whom he
had co-operated ln the creation of a new
Egypt, of the late khedlve, who constituted an admirable link between the
reformers, whose zeal at all times he
tempered, and the people whose ultra-
conservative fears of reform ho used
his Influence to allay. "History will be
unjust," said Lord Cromer, "if il does
not accord lo Tewflk Pasha a somewhat
important niche In the Valhalla of Oriental potentates."
Compliments to other Egyptians included a prophecy of a career of great
public usefulness for the minister for
education, Zagloub Bey, the sirdar, Sir
Reginald Wlngate Garatin, Mr. Flndlay,
and Professor Maapero were among the
Europeans praised.
"1 refuBc to be reasoned out of what,
if it he a delusion, is ut ull events a
noble delusion, that the Egyptians, at
nil events the besl among them, do now
recognize that It was the hand of western civilization, acting mainly during
the last twenty-five years through the
Instrumentality of England, that has
raised them from tbe slough ot despond.
"When 1 first came hero 1 set two
principal objects before myself���one
was political, the other administrative.
My creed of International politics is almost summed up lnx the prase Ne
rompez jamais avec l'entente francalse.'
If ever two nations were marked out by
the force of circumstances to be friends,
certainly they aro France and England.
As long as the Egyptian sore continued
to rankle thut friendship was naturally
Impaired. For years tbe two nations
looked at each other askance, 'comme
deux chlens do faience.' We exchanged
some hard, fortunately only verbal
knocks." Lord Cromer noted that "le
b**utal Cromer" had now become "cot
illustre vlelllard." One of the happiest
daya of his career was April 8, 1904,
when the Anglo-French agreement was
signed. He did not claim to be one of
the principal authors. The chief merit
lay with the statesmen and his "talented
sovereign." But the continuous efforts
by ull in Egypt to avoid friction paved
tho way.
Turning to his administrative object,
he remarked on the wild talk about the
autocratic and trynnnlcal government of
Egypt. In a splendid "passage he dc
acrlbed tho moral and Intellectual advancement of the people, the abolition
of the whip, forced labor, the accursed
liiBtltutlon of slavery, the dethronement
of King Backsheesh from high placos,
the distribution of tho fertilizing water
of tho Nile to prlnco and ponsant alike,
tho fact that the taxpayer's money wns
not spent on useless palncea, and all tho
work of education.
Having quoted the Khedive���"It Is
time to devote all our efforts not only
towards the material wefare of the
population, but towards the satisfaction
o fthoir Intellectual and moral requirements. For my pnrt, I have no more
serious preoccupation than that."���Lord
Grimier Isald: "I heartllyuwoloomethis
declaration. His Highness can
more especially do a great
deal In the way of tlie moral
advancement of the people. He can put
u stop to the scnndals of (ho Wakfs administration. He can show his co-re-
llglonlsts lhat tho Mahomcdan law
courts can bo reformed without in any
way shaking the pillars of the Moslem
faith. He can sternly repress the proceedings of t*��e self-seeking and irresponsible advli'. rs who generally cluster
round an Orleital court, and whose Influence li so detrimental to public morality. He can use his great Influence to
encourage true reformers, who have tbe
well-being of the country earnestly at
heart. If, as 1 trust will be the ease,
Ills Highness does these things, he will
earn tho gratitude and respect of every
class In this counlry,"
Despite defects and anomalies, the
present system of government must be
continued. "Sir Eldon Curst. In whom
1 have such thorough confidence I see
Is strongly advised to follow what Is
called my policy. It may be summed up
in a very few words. It has been, to tell
the truth. Never forget that ln this
country the maxim, 'Union is strength'
must be fully applied. When all nonsense and exaggeration are swept away
It will, I think, be found that the differences of opinion between my opponents, especially, those in England, and
myself are really not so much of principle as of degree. They wish to gallop.
I consider a steady jog-trot is the pace
best suited to advance the interests ot
this country. My strong conviction ls
that if the pace be greatly mended a
serious risk will be incurred that the
horse will come down and break his
knees. I hope thst what I am now saying will be translated Into the vernacular language and will thus reach the
ears of some at all events, of the voiceless millions of blue-shirted fellaheen,
on whose labors the prosperity of the
country really depends.
"I, who claim always to have been
Iheir true friend, warn them against allowing themselves to be duped and misled by their pseudo-representatives, who
without a shadow of real uuthorty
credit them with Ideas which they neither entertain "nor fully comprehend,
and who advocate k political programme
the Immediate adoption of which, while
detrimental to all other interests, would,
I am firmly convined, be specially hurtful to those of the poorest classes of
the community.
"Progress, Instead of being too slow,
has been so fast that the reforms effected have not as yet been thoroughly
assimilated by tbe mass of the population. All In favor of rational government and steady progress, be tbey Moslem, Christian, European, African or
Asiatic, sbonld unite ln resisting those
forces which, whether from Ignorance
or intention, are ln reality advocating
the cause of retrogression.
"I do not doubt tbat difficulties still

Gorst: but my last word for him and
for all of you may fitly be the Greek
inscription which in former days vas
frequently Inscribed by the worshippers
of Iris in this country on their tombs,

The ladies of Carlo presented Lady
Cromer with a handsome souvenir.

Paris, May 28.���The report of the

are taken most promptly a conditions
similar to what which prevails in the

Canada Associated Press
Subsidized by Dominion Government
���Criminals Still Protected
and Rewarded.
Ottawa, May 28.���Attention has been
drawn to the marked difference between
the reports of the Imperial Conference
in the British press, and those sent out
by the government aided by the Canadian Press association.
A good many newspaper men und
some other taxpayers have been curious
to know what value the country gets for
the subsidy paid by the government to
the Canadian Associated Press, an organization supposed to cable news from
England to Canada. A majority of the
Canadian papers refuse to take this service, and those which do use it have
made a good deal of complaint. But the
subsidized association has during the
last few weeks made good its claim for
the continued payment of the government allowance. Its despatches have
given glowing accounts ot Sir Wilfrid's
performances. They have told us that
he was the central figure of the Imperial conference. The longest despatch of the season was the one which
pictured in glowing terms the wonderful prestige of Sir Wilfrid Laurler, and
told how he exercised a controlling and
restraining Influence over Imperialist
agitators on one side and Little England-
era on the other. Canada is also Indebted to this subsidized service for the
information sent by cable that a tailor's
trade paper has pronounced Sir Wilfrid
the best dressed man in the conference.
This alone iB worth the $10,000 to $12,-
000 subsidy.
The truth appears to be that Sir
Wilfrid has looked wise and spoken
gracefully, but that ln the council Itself
he has been a negative quantity. Following, as his custom Is, the lines of
least resistance he supported all the
compromises which have made the
meeting ineffectual. Finding the existing Imperial ministry opposed to
preferential trade. Sir Wilfrid took back
water on the preferential trade resolution which he himself moved four years
ago under the sympathetic influence of
Mr. Chamberlain. The Australian
leader, who took up the preferential
trade Idea after Canada, and who has
energetically supported it against the
recent hostile Influences of Downing
street, found the Canadian representative an impediment instead of an assistance.
Dredging contracts for the coming
season have been given out, the old
favorites receiving their share. Among
these ls the Mareton Dredging company
which operated at Goderlch last year.
Mr. Bennett brought out an interesting
circumstance in the committee of Bupply relating to thiB concern. Ho was
Informed by the minister that W. L.
Horton, who figured as a contractor, was
the Mareton Dredge company. Mr. Horton was identified by Mr. Bennett, M. P.,
as the gentleman deacrlbed by Pritchett
ln the course of his evidence of ballot
switching operation In West Huron.
Pritchett spoke ot Horton acting as
cashier in connection with this campaign.
Discussing election frauds ou April
ICth In the House, tlie leader of the op-

by James Farr of Goderlch regarding

United States Reported to be Seeking
Danish West Indies.
Copenhagen, May, 28.���It is stated
here lhal the question of the acquisition uf the Danish West Indian ialanda
by the United States has been informally broached again by the American minister, Mr. O'Brien, in conversation with
the Danish prime minister, Count Lev-
itza. It is considered, however, that political and other reasons will prevent
Denmark from consenting to the sale.
There la little probability that the government will be able to obtain a majority in parliament in support of the proposition.

Chicago, May 28.���At the urgent request of a number of governors and

ceived here laat night the four men who
gave their Uvea because of the Incident
were Dr. Julio Blanco, Dr. Jorge A. Villa, Dr. Echeverria, and Balthasar Rodtl,
a civil engineer. All of the men were
wealthy and belonged to the flrat families of the republic. Tbey had not heretofore been identified with any of the
policies ot the country. The story of
the capture and aubsequent death of
these men ia dramatic. Aa soon aa the
mine waa sprung they left Guatemala
City because, it ia understood, they
feared that Cabarera would trump up a
charge agalnat them. .They returned
later and went Into hiding. Oen. Viva-
duery of the Gautemalan army, heard

house and a battle ensued In which
Commandant Moreno and another officer were killed. Re inforcementa were
then called for and 300 of the regular
army surrounded the house. The official report says the four men thereupon committed suicide. The soldiers

The evidence as to the value Io Canada of the Industrial Disputes Act Introduced by Hon. It. Unilciix and parsed
during the closing days of the last parliament, Is decidedly conflicting,
Prominent employers of labor can lie
quoted for and against il, and only a
week ago thu Trades untl Labor Council
of Vancouver unanimously condemned
11 as worthless.
The recent settlement of the dispute
between the G. T. R. company and lis
machinists Is undoubtedly a valuable
achievement, und a triumph for the act.
But the circumstances were spi-dully
favorable. The machinists arc skillrd
laborers, probably above the average In
intelligence, the cumpany was extreme*
ly anxious to avoid Idleness and delay,
and both sides were extremely fortunste
In securing lhe services, us arbitrator,
of Adam Shortt, of Queen's.
Labor disputes are the greatest menace, almost the ouly nu-nuce at present,
to the prosperity of Canada. There Is
not a Canadian, of any shade of political
opinion, who would not be heartily glad
if a way could lie found to make all suspensions of work by disputes impossible. And If Mr. Lemieux' bill had lhat
happy result no one would refuse or
grudge him the fullest measure uf praise
for lt.
But, unfortunately lhat cannot be
claimed for the act. We may be thank-
ful for every success achieved liy It or
through It. But there Is nolhlng to lie
gained by Ignoring Its failures.
The act had hardly been signed when
tbe trouble In the Enst Kootenay and
Alberta coal fields broke out, and work
ceased In every colliery. Peace came
at last after several weeks of Idleness
and restriction of many industries. W.
MacKenzie King, deputy minister of labor, waB credited with having exerted
beneficial Influence on both parties to
tho dispute. But the quarrel was made
up between employers and employees
without the service of a conciliation
board, and, in spite of the express prohibition contained In the act, work was
everywhere suspended for several
Mr. Lemieux' grave assurance to the
House of Commons that there was nu
strike has not yet been explained.
A strike is none the less a strike because some humorist undertakes to call
it a vacation.
Other signal examples of the failure
of tho act are ln Ihe strike of the longshoremen in Montreal, and of the bricklayers In Toronto. Doth are still In
progress, in spite of every effort at settlement.
The weakness of the act Is that it creates a new offence while providing absolutely no means for either prevention or
It is, since the passing of the act, a
crime for laborers to strike In a body,
whether it Is a crime for any Individual
laborer to stop work Is not specified.
Therefore theru was ingenuity In the
Juke about taking a vacation instead of
going on strike, in spite of the transparent absurdity of the disllnctlon.
Of course no court of law would have
admitted such a distinction for a mo-
mem Every une knew that the coal miners, over 2,QUO In number, had broken
the law.    There was no suggestion uf
punishment   The furce at the disposal
of the authorities Is probably equal lu
llie necessity of any such case, but the
Wisdom uf attempting lo punish 2,000
men for an offence created by a new
statute is more thun doubtful.
The Lemieux Act is far from perfect.
If its present defects and weaknesses
tan be remedied, and It can be made
a really workable uct, applicable to all
cases, It will be matter for general
gratification. The questions with whicli
It deals ure too vital to bo allowed to
becomes Issues of parly politics.
Ills Worship Mayor Qlllett has called
a public meeting for tomorrow night lo
consider ways ond means of celebrating
In Nelson on .Inly 1st the 40th anniversary of Canadian Confederation. The
response will no doubt lie general, and
II. may probably be tnken for granted
that a programme of sports and attractions will bo provided which will draw-
to Nelson for the day or days of tbe
celebratlou large numbers of visitors
from surrounding cities and towns. That
is the apparently accepted conception of
the celebration of a national holiday,
and Nelson has scored in so many sue-
cesses on thuse lines that suggestions
for change or addition may he unwelcome. Uut Dominion Day means something to Canada, and that meaning
should be iu some way recognized by
adults and impressed upon tlie young.
We doubt if the meaning of Dsiminion
Day is adequately represented by lacrosse matches, root races, ruck-drilling,
und the pluylng of "the latest" American two-steps and marches, whicli have
been the beginning and* end of some
Duminlun Duy progrummes.
The Rossland Miner prefers a complaint against the Nelson 20,000 Club
because that flourishing mining camp
was not murked on the railway sketch
map whicli Is contained in the club's
new folder, The executive of Ihe club
explain that all points of interests. Including Rossland, are marked on the
colored map on the back of the folder,
but that the sole purpose of the smaller
sketch was to show Nelson's railway
connections, and consequently the only
points of inlerest were Medicine Hat.
Revelstoke, Spokane, Vancouver, Victoria and Seattle. Certainly there was
no intention to slight Russland.
The importance of the Issues with
w-hlch It has been called upon to deal
lately has had a stimulating effect upon
the Nelson board of trade. There is
no longer any difficulty In securing a
quorum or in getting motions offered.
All this is highly gratifying. The board
has also won recognition throughout
Kootenay as a very Influential body.
And well It may. Within the last month
it has issued instructions to the Dominion government, and at last night's
meeting It decided to join Issue with
two transcontinental railway companies.

Milan, May 28.���Duke Pompeo Lltta,
Uio last in.-inl.i-i- of an historical Lombard fsimlly, Is for the moment tbe most
dlsapiiolntcd man In this city. Eight
years ago he settled down here In the
ancient castles ol his ancestors, having
until Ihen travelled abroad. During his
wanderings ho became acquainted with
Die leaders of German socialism especially Barren Uebcl and Vollmar, and
became a convert to their doctrines.
Upon arriving at his ancestral home he
resolved to give proof of his faith. Accordingly he withdraw all bis large estate surrounding bis munsion and handed over for cultivation to 1118 peasant
families working on the eBtatu aB laborers, forming tbem Into an agricultural
colony on socialistic lines. He charged
the new occupiers trifling rents, which
only aggrcgrated $5,000 for the whole
large property.
At flrst the experiment produced excellent results, and the economical condition of the peasants improved greatly.
Duke Litta rejoiced at the Biiccess of
his altruism, but prosperity proved the
undoing o fthe colony. The peusants
grew idle, neglected to till the laud, and
began to cut down the lumber. Disagreements with the proprietor on this
subject led to the rise of the agitator
among the community, the members of
wblch were thus Induced to claim absolute ownership of the estate and to refuse to work.
The duke, deeply wounded by the ingratitude of bis beneficiaries, acknowledged that his sin*.sin has vanished. He
believes tbat the ignorance of the peas-
nuiry makes colieetlvlBm Impossible at
present. Nevertheless, he doeB not
abandon hope of a golden age in the future, and meanwhile he Is taking the
practical course of applying to the tribunals (o ensure him undisputed possession of his estates.

Heads of Justice Departments  Roused
to Action by Number of
Railway Accldente.
Ottawa, May 28.���The attorney generals of Ottawa and Quebec have a number of cases before them which were Investigated and submitted by the board
of the railway commissioners.
Wherever negllgonce had been shown
In the case of any railway uccldent It
has been reported to the attorney general of the province, with the request
that tbe party or parties be prosecuted.
Conductor Thompson ot Ouelph, was
the flrst case prosecuted iu Ontario,
another cuse has been prosecuted in
Quebec. There are other cases In which
no action has yet been taken. Where
tho cattes have been submitted to the
provinces the duty of the railway commission ends.
Commissioner Mills, in discussing the
matter, said that the crown attorneys
were, as a rule, entirely too lax ln neglecting to formulate and prosecute
charges of manslaughter against those
responsible for fatalities.
Mr. Mills ls of the opinion that the
law should be as strictly enforced In
the case of deaths resulting from preventable railway accidents as in all
other cases of manslaughter. Uut in
regard to railway accidents there ls seldom anything beard of them after tbe
report if the coroner's Jury. The doctor
pointed out that in the state of Minnesota tbe law provides tbat crown attorneys must actively assist ln the Investigation of all railway accidents in their
respective districts, and if negligence is
found on the part of any one connected
wltb the accident tbe crown attorney
must prosecute.
The attorney general of Ontario says
that lt is extremly difficult to get evidence lo convict, ln respect to duty
for 20 hours a day for several days, the
board bas under consideration the drafting of an order to regulate in some way
the number of hours per day an employee should be employed.

New Manager,
D. G. Maihias of Kenora, Ont.. ha? arrived in Nelson, and is now in charge
of the wholesale business of A. Macdonald & Co. Mr. Mathias has had a
lengthy business experience, and wil! no
doubt gain for himself an enviable position in the confidence of the business
community of Nelson.
Residing in London.
Wm. A. Carlyle, for years provincial
mineralogist, later manager of the Le
Roi mine at Rossland, has resigned
from the position of general manager of
the Rio Tinto copper mines in Spain,

Excellent progress is being made on
the new mill at the Hiue Hell mine. The

Drowned in Creek.
Sunday morning Alexander Grieve
and Jospeh Spatkins left camp at Lemon creek and started fishing up the
creek. They had to cross on a log at
one point. Spatkins crossed safely but
Grieve slipped and fell, Spatkins
reached a pole to him hut he did not
see ft. Running down the bank for 100
yards Spatkins got ahead of his companion and drew him out but he was
already dead. The creek at this season contains about 3 feet of water but
is very rapid and full of rocks. Spatkins thinks Grieve was stunned by striking his head either on the log or on
a rock. He went to camp, got help and
took the body down to Lemon Creek.
Word was sent to Nelson yeaterday
morning just ln time to let Dr. Arthur
catch the Slocan train. After examination he decided that no Inquest was
necessary. Grieve was a native of .Aberdeenshire, 22 years of age. His only relative In America is a half-brother, Geo.
