I/union, June 27.���M. E. Ingnls, lhe
chairman of the municipal ownership
commission of Ihe National Civic Federation of the United Stales, in an interview published here yesterday said
he noted as the most striking feature
of British municipal government, the
number of men of first-rate capacity
and Integrity who were willing to devote tbelr time to civic affairs. Such
men in Ihe United States, he said, generally were engaged about their own
affairs, and had no time for municipal
w-ork, and therefore municipal government in the t'niteii States is rarely so
good as here.
Mr. Ingals further said lhat conditions in America are distinctly averse
to municipal ownership, and that it
does not follow, because we have a system working well here, il can immediately he transplanted lo lhe United
Stales, Besides, we find many instances, such as gas works, where private companies are doing public work
with  equal   efficiency.
Mr. Ingals observed that it was curious that monarchical England was tending so strongly toward socialism, while
republican America was still remarkably  Individualistic.

he consented lo it and was only tiding

Paris. June 27.���Special representations have been made' by the French
government t/> the government of
Ureal Britain on the subject of joint
measures to prevent e anarchist outrages.
The French government Is particularly anxious lhat the aliens act passed
by Mr. Balfour's government should
no applied so ns lo exclude all persons Buspected of anarchistic sympathies, and that an understanding should
be come to by which the police of
lioih countries should keep in closer
touch with one another.
When Sir Henry Campbell-Banner-
ntan's government relaxed the aliens
act so that political offenders should
not come within its terms, it was stated by a section of the; French press
that Herbert Gladstone's exemptions
would make England tbe sanctuary of
anarchists compelled to -flee from other countries.
As matters now stand, the must noto-
tious anarchist need only say on
reaching England that he is emigrating to escape the penal -es of a political offence, and, accon lug to the
government's instructions'.' ,'..? rjri'.i^ii
immigration officers must give him the
lieuefll of doubt;
An iufliteniial official of the French
pulice today said that one of the greatest difficulties of his subordinates is
ihe want, of a systematized method of
dealing with crimes of this description.
For want of such a system the threads
of an incipient plot are lost in four
cases out of five.
He declared that If England would
only agree to some method of watching
ihe anarchists she already harbors, and
refused to receive others, a great deal
of good would result to every country.
The police of every capital would then
look after their own anarchists, instead of casting them out to batch fresh
crimes unhindered in London.
The nearness of Paris to Ixmdon
makes the execution of a plot that has
been launched In London an easy matter in the French capital.
The enormous number of travellers
who cross the channel between France
and England every day makes it almost impossible for French officials to
exercise the same scrutiny over suspected persons as they can al frontier
points converging from  Paris.
The French government is also heartily seconding the proposal for an international anti-anarchist congress
made hy the Italian government, nnd
is anxious lhal it should be held with
fhe least possible delay.
will to the new minister. Revs. J. T.
Ferguson and E. H. Shanks were present, and spoke briefly, welcoming Mr.
Powell to the ranks of the Nelson ministry.
On behalf of himself and Mrs. Powell, whose illness prevented her from
being present, Mr. Powell thanked his
congregation and his fellow-ministers
for their kindly greeting. He referred
feelingly to his pastorate at Vancouver,
which he left with great regret, but
added that already his heart waa centered In the work at Nelson. Briefly
he spoke of the relaiions which he
thought should exist between the
churches and society, saying that a
church was either a moral force or
nothing. He appealed especially for
the co-operation of young men.
A musical program was rendered, Including solos by Mrs. Thurman and Mr.
Shaw and several quartettes. Later all

Bealiy, daughter of tbe late Marshall
Field, will receive stocks and bonds to
tne value of $857,000 by a decree entered yesterday by Judge Walker In Iho

San Francisco, June 27���The diamond rings and other personal effects

Bouton nt Mount Cutler, In Colorado,
still who, with Nulda Olivia, lured William Ellis from Australia to Berkeley,
where Ihey attempted to take his life,
were sold in Oakland yesterday at a

by Andrews and the Olivia woman last
winter when he killed bis companion
nnd himself to escape the clutches of
the police.. The bidding for the gems
was brisk, and from these relics of a
life of crime the estate of the noted
criminal has received upwards of
$1.00(1. The money belonging to the

Victoria. June 27.���A better system
of police protection on the Fraser river
during the salmon Ashing season than
haB ever before prevailed is planned
this year by the provincial government,
which Is seeking assistance of the federal authorities in the matter. Correspondence on the- subject is now passing between Victoria and Ottawa, and
it is hoped that satisfactory arrangements will be concluded in time to permit of the establishment of the police
patrol by July 10th, when tbe fishing
season opens.
Although no statement haB been
made by the provincial authorities as
to what aid Is expected from Ottawa,
canners believe that the province desires to get some financial assistance
from the federal government. The Do-
minion receives a large amount of money from the sale of fishing licenses, and
possibly it may be Induced to spend
some of It on the policing of the river.
Grand Trunk Securities.
An Ottawa despatch received on Saturday states lhat the Grand Trunk Pacific may deposit standard securities
with the government in place of the
$5,000,000 cash which the company had
to put up as a guarantee of good faith.
We suppose Grand Trunk Pacific stock
will he regarded as a standard security.

(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Victoria, June 27.���At yesterday afternoon's session of the provincial
teachers' institute, the invitation of the
school trustees and city council of Nelson to hold the annual convention of
the institute for 1907 in the Kootenay
metropolis was accepted hy unanimous
Last night's session was taken up by
the papers of J. D. Buchanan on "The
School as an Agency in Training for
Citizenship, and James L. Hughes, on
"Dickens as an Educator."
Mr. Buchanan advocated a detailed
and sympathetic teaching of history,
especially of. the history of Canada in
all its parts, a closer and fuller study
of Canadian literature, and attention to
current questions in the national life.
Mr. Hughes' paper on Dickens dwelt
on his sympathetic insight into modern
life and his treatment of the apparently
trivial interests of the units In the
mass that make up the nation. The
paper was at once scholarly and popular In style, and was greatly enjoyed.
Today the institute is divided Into
sections, as described yesterday. The
three public school sections, presided
over by Inspectors Wilson, Stewart and
Gordon, are discussing conditions of
"High School Admission, Departmental
Instruction, Three R. Proficiency, Individual Instruction, Inductive Geography Teaching, Non-Essential Arithmetic, Literature Teaching, Nature Study,
the Time Element In the Lower Grades,
Field Work, Text-Books and Juvenile
The high school teachers, presided
over by Principal Stromberg, of New
Westminster, are considering "Junior
Grade Time-Tables and Examinations,
Options and College Work."
Manual training directors, with H.
Dunnell in the chair, are considering
"Metric Measurements as Compared
with English, File and Glass Paper, the
Woodwork System, Color Work, and the
Ethics of Manual Training."
In the domestic science department,
under Mrs. Jenkins, school trustee of
Victoria. "Sewing and Cooking, ai> Subjects of School Study," are being discussed.
In all sections the discussion Is open
and unrestricted. A few speakers have
been named to open each debate. Ample time Is given for question and discussion, and full advantage Is taken of
il by the teachers generally.
The arrangement has been found
most satisfactory, and it is the general
opinion that the present is certain to
be the most helpful convention! to the
rank and file of teachers in the history
of the provincial institute.
This evening there is to be a public
meeting in the Victoria theatre, at
which the subject of discussion will be
the question of a provincial university.
The election of officers will be held
tomorrow morning, when all business
will be concluded. James Leamy. of
New Westminster, Dominion timber
agent, will speak on "Forestry."
Tomorrow afternoon and evening the
visiting teachers will be Victoria's
guests at the Gorge park.

" By one won] we are sometimes Judged lo be

foolish. 1*1 us therefore be mri-fiii what �������

Tho practice of reloaBing prisoners
from oonfinemonl under what is known
as ihn tlcket-oMeave sysiem is one
which n few years ago was favorably
reported upon In numerous instances
where it had been tried both in this
and oihcr countries. The ideas under*
lying the adoption of the system were
wise and humane, and with equally
wise administration tho system itself
would doubtless prove to be B valuable
aid In tl)<} reclamation of the fallen and
the reform of tho criminal. Whal was
intended to tie���ami. under judicious
administration, would doubtless have
proved itself to be���a strong Incentive
to good conduct on the part of those
serving terms in our penitentiaries, lias,
under an unwise administration ol tlte
net, led lo a clamor for Its repeal.
Among recent occurrences, the ease
of Brothier, released apparently under
lhe provisions of this aei, is fresh In
tho public mind. A notorious criminal,
with tbe foulest reputation, convicted
of a peculiarly revolting crime, and regarded by those most Intimately acquainted With his career as guilty of
various offences of the vllesl character,
Is pardoned by the governor-general nn
Iho advice of the minister of justice
afler having served only two of his
seven years of sentence. The feeling
throughout this province is very strong,
and In effect thai a serious miscarriage
of justice has taken place. It is reported thai Mr. McPherson, M. P. for
Burrard, stated on tbe floor of the
house at Ottawa thai if be bad had to
choose bet wen the release of Hill Miner,
who so recently was sentenced to penal servitude for life, and the notorious
scoundrel Brothler, he would certainty
havo selected the latter for tho clemency of the court. These remarks indicate one way by which the act in question is  being  brought  into discredit,
Among other utterances discrediting
the administration thai this acl bas
boon receiving, we iimi the following
in a recent Issue of the Toronto Globe.
Ii is a statement of Dr. Gilmour, warden of tho Central prison. Toronto, in
regard lo its effect Upon tbe criminal
classes as observed  by him:
"The present ticiict oMeave act," declared Warden Qilmour, emphatically,
"gives the pull to the man who can
hire an excellent lawyer, or who has
Influential friends at court. Men have
come into the Central prison cracking
Iheir lingers tit tne as they cam", and
saying they did not can. for me; they
had a pull, and would soon be out It
was true, too, and they wen.' out cracking their lingers at mo again' This was
an injustice keenly fell and bitterly
resented by other prisoners who had
no Influential friends or money, nud It
increased the difficulties ol any real reformation   work..'
Concerning this statement of Warden Gilmour the Montreal Star remarks:
"If the notion gets abroad that the
working of so delicate a system as the
tieket-of'-Ienve law goes by favor and
not by justice, public opinion will demand its repeal.    Nor could  the inde
terminate sentence system survive such
a suspicion. II is an experiment to permit anyone but (he (rial judge lo say
how long a criminal shall remain lu
prison; and such a charge as that of
Warden Gilmour puts the experiment
decidedly on Ihe defensive. It would
Certainly seem that this statement cannot be permitted to remain in the air."
Wisely administered, this acl should
be productive of excellent results, but
unwise administration of it is causing
ti vigorous clamor for its repeal. If
Warden Gllmour'fl statement, from
which tbo above Is extracted, Is true���
and of its truth Itrolhier's release is an
exemplification���pull and Influence
wiih the Ottawa authorities, and not
exemplary conduct, govern its administration, It is not penitence and reformation which secure a favorable
consideration of the case of a prisoner,
hut personal and party influence. Administered thus, lhe effect of this system upon the criminal can be only injurious. It works no reformation in
the prisoner, which was obviously tho
intention in introducing the system into Canada; it brings; into vigorous exercise and expenditure money. Influence and pull. Hotter to have (ho act
repealed than through it havo Insubordination introduced into our prisons,
and have our prison doors thrown open
prematurely t�� unreformeii and unre
peaiitim criminals,
The cily council was called upon on
Monday night to make its first division
on a question after a good-natured controversy, over the request of the Salvation Army for a contribution of civic
funds to its rescue work. Without suggesting thai it speaks either well or ill
for the harmony of the council that
(hey see eye toi eye on so many questions, the one above was not one upon
which they should have been asked to
go on record. The petition or request
of the Army officers put the members
Of the council where they wore.forced
to choose between their personal or humanitarian feelings and (heir sense of
public trust. That they acted wisely
in declining the request we think must
bo apparent. This is without intended
reflection on the good work of the
Army, for whoso persistent ami usually
successful work this paper has the
greatest res poet nnd admiration. But
the principle of devoting public money
which the council holds in trust, nnd
which Is levied from all classes, religious and Irreligious���from those who
favor rescue work and those who do
not, alike���lo the assistance of this or
that religious body, would be to establish a precedent which would undoubtedly work mischief in the future administration of civic affairs, One of
the saddest and most bitter occasions
of strife in Canada und other countries
lias been the alleged favoritism shown
by governments in diverting public
funds to assist in the educational nnd
other affairs of religious bodies. There
is, first, the Jealousy aroused between
the rival recipients; and in lhe next
instance, Ihe temptation to scheme and
Inveul methods by means of which a
good case for further appeal may be
made out. Happily in British Columbia
we have so far been free from sectarian
strife of (his kind, nnd, howoer deserving ihe individual case may he, the
principle of voting public money to be
used for religious or humanitarian purposes other than of the mosl general
nature is mischievous.

rtage. Last night's general meeting
wan largely attended, unci progress waa
reported in every department. Two
Importanl suggestions won' made���by
vv. ii. Thornton for a permanent ��ource
of Income, nml by K. Btarkey fur u more
determined eHort to secure a linger
Klmru or Ihe tuiirlxt truffle of lhe con-
I inont.
Though no definite action could bo
taken al ouco on eliner suggestion,
fbelr reception left no doubt thai both
will receive full attention.
Tbo meeting wan held In the board
nf Irade rooms at 8:3(1. There were
presenl T. o. Procter, vice-president,
In Ihe chair, und J. M. Lay, W. W. Ilcer,

18811.40, Expenditures amounted lo
It-Is.25, and $250 more was authorized,
leaving less than f>00 to meet other
prospective liabilities.
W. W. Beer, for lhe advertising committee, reported that no new work bad
been undertaken, bul lhe circulation of
news was steadily maintained as authorised,
M. S. Parry asked If any replies had
been received, and the secretary replied
���as at the executive committee meet-
inn, and previously published���thai
many mining papers in San Francisco,
Seattle. Oakland. Denver ami other
Cities were regularly publishing the
mining statistics smt out hy the club
M. S. Parry then suggested lhal Inquiry be made, and thai the statistics
heb no longer sent to papers that do
nol use Ihem. A motion to that effect
was adopted.
W, W. Beer suggested that no haste
be used, as some distant papers were
only now receiving the reports The
suggestion was recommended to the
new advertising committee, as was also
A. Lean's suggestion that an effort be
made io Interest agricultural papers.
I. (I. Nelson, for the entertainment
committee, reported lhat the lies! terms
obtainable tor an excursion on Ihe
steamer Kaslo was 76 cents a head. Negotiations had been attempted with lhe
headquarters offlce In Seattle. He advised against an excursion euiller than
the middle of July.
.1. L. Buchan thought there was still
a possibility of securing the Kuskanook. The committee was instructed
to secure it if possible.
T. G. Procter reported thai the may-
or had offered the pavilion at the tramway park fo the club for entertainments
free of charge except for maintenance.
On motion of F. A. Starkey, the offer
was accepted.
W\ G. Thomson advocated a regular

W. H. Jones.
