clotifl living, but thiB morning In spite
of a slight return of Indisposition appears to he In good condition.
Court opened at 0:40 a. in, und at
9:40 a. m. James (I. Hawley begun his
address to the jury. He suit! thut they
expected to prove that Hie offlosrs and
and executive committee of the Western Federation of.Mlners wus responsible
not only for the death of Steunenberg
but of a score of others besides. The
defence objected but the objection was
In reply to a ipiestion from the court
i\tr. Hawley said he expected to prove
everything he Bald, and that in his opening Ktiiiem,.ni he would keep "far
within the scope of the evidence."
Hawley said the ������Inner circle" of the
Western Federation of Miners alwayB
aimed at controlling not ouly the organ-
ization of tbe federation but lbe government of the different states where the
organization existed. Mr. Darrow again
objected on the ground that thc Btatement was a "pure piece of rhetoric aud
uo part of a Btatement of lhe case."
Hawley Bald he would prove that the
Weslcrn Federation of miners "left a
trail of blood, traded In blood, hired
paid assassins," and collected huge
sums of money which they UBcd and
squandered to carry out the objects of
the few meu of the "inner circle." He
said he would show that tbe inner circle" used this emergency fund to hire
the best legul talent to defend those of
their circle charged wltb crime.
Hawley, after describing Steuncn*
berg's doulh und Orchard's arrest, said
he would prove that after Orchard's arrest he received a telegram signed
"L" which was followed by the presence
In Caldwell of Mr. Miller, one of Haywood's counsel. Hawley said tlle prose-
cutlon would produce letters from Pettlbone to Orchard when the latter waB
In Jail. He also announced that Orchard
had made a "full confession" to Mc-
Partland, und that Orchard and Mc-
Partlaod would be on the stand.
He reviewed events Immediately preceding Steunenberg's death aud told of
the positions held by Haywood and Pettlbone In the Western Federation of
Miners. He said that Hurry Orhcurd
was also a member of the federation,
as was Jack Slmklns, wbo has never
beeu arrested. Mr. Hawley told the
Jury lhat while Haywood, Pettlbone snd
Moyer are not speclllcally charged
with having thrown or exploded the
bomb, it is not the pentose of the prosecution to prove tbat they were even In
lbe state at the time of lhe crime. Under
tlie laws of this state, however, accessories before the fact are not recognized
ub such, but must be charged with the
crime as principals.
"It Is our purpose," the attorney for
the Btate went on, "to show thut the
death of Steunenberg was the result of
thc conspiracy with the understanding
and collusion between the leadens of
the federation and other persons. We
claim that the leaders of this union are
responsible for this outrage antl it will
be our purpose to prove them such."
Mr. Hawley then went into information
of the federation, saying lt was organ-
Ixed In 18113. The executive committee,
he explained, wns given almost absolute control of the body. He said the
rank and llle knew little of whul was
going on thc few men and guiltless of
the crimes alleged. "Hut we will show,"
he said, "that the leaders of thla organ-
Ization have been responsible not orly
for the death of Steunenberg but of a
BCoro of others besides."
Attorney Dnrrow, for the defence,
bore declared that "the death of scores
of otherB" had nothing to do with the
case. "The court cannot tell at this
lime whether the statement is objectionable or not. Objection overruled." said
Judge Wood. Judge Wood nsked Mr.
Hnwley If he expected to show by evidence the responsibility of lho defend
ant lu the federation's alleged unlawful
acta and received a reply In the affirmative.

The council meeting last night lasted
over two hours. It was robbed of some
of its promised interest by the non-appearance of W. P. Tlerney. The provisional agreement with the West Kootenay Power and Light company was approved though It wan agreed that the
full text should not be published, for
obviouB reasons.

Rev. J. T. Ferguson, who, with F.
Starkey, appeared on behalf of the public library, asked for a guarantee of |500
for lhe curreni year, expressing the
hope lhat the whole ot that amount
would not ho required, as the directors
had still a small balance from the proceeds of the Kirmess.
The delegates were promised consideration at the next meeting.
F. J. Deane asked that the electrical
engineer be Instructed to give definite
Information as io tbe kind of motors re
quired by users of electric power. He
had already secured motors hut found
that they could not be used.
City Electrician Smith explained that
the 110-volt motors wllh one-horse power would not be satisfactory; they must
be 230 or 440 volt. He also thought lt
very bad policy to couple lighting and
power service on one circuit. The only
three circuits he would recommend are
220, 440 and 2,200 volts.
Mr. Deane was assured that he could
be accommodated temporarily ln any
The finance committee then reported

Alderman Selous asked as to the ownership of firemen's uniforms when the
wearers left tlie service. He was told
that tho city paid only a part of the
coBt. Sometimes, ub ln the latest case,
the early resignation of the members
made reoovery difficult.
Thu resolution ot 1905 that a fireman
leaving tho service within 60 days of receipt of a new uniform pay half the com
was read, and the clerk was instructed to furnish the chief with a

ant lots be cleared.
Alderman McMorls drew nttentlon to
the condition of the sidewalk on Lati
mer street near Cedar, and also to the
defective street lighting.
Chief Jarvls asked to.be relieved of

The mayor reported that ho had al-
ready cngitged K. MeCregor, an expert-
i-iitcil man, for the fluty at $100 a

A letter from the Union of British
Columbia municipalities reported the
success of all Its applications to the
provincial government, asked for the

Clauses Act was read. It reported endorsement of requests from Nelson,
Rossland, Victoria, Vancouver and other
places, and tbat all such requests had
been acceded to.

Aid. Rose moved that the agreement
between the city and West Kootenay
Power and Light company, entered Into
on May 22nd, be approved.
Aid. Rose was informed that the company would submit plans for the dam
and raising of the walls to the city for
The mayor remarked that while he
had no wish to have any proceedings
behind closed doors, it was not expedient always to have details of negotiations published.
Aid. Selous strongly endorsed the
latter part of the mayor's suggestions,
and thought that tentative agreements
should not be published.

whole, which was carried, Aid. Irving
The agreement was then read in committee and reported.
Aid. Rose'B motion of approval was

Aid Rose said he understood that the
present caretaker of the cemetery waB
keeping no record ot Interments. He
urged that the cemetery be plotted accurately and full records kept.

The mayor reported having been Interviewed by union delegates on the
subject of David Woods' salary. The
council had raised Its laborers' wages to

System of M Service
Writer ia Ottawa Periodical Tells
How Position and Promotions Are Secured.
Ottawa, June 4.���A recent article in
the Monthly Calendar of St. Patricks
Church haB caused a sensation. The
aVithorsliip is credited to Rev. Father
Whelan. The subject ls that of "pull
ln the civil service. The writer states
tbat competency and' qualifications do
not count It is a question of "pull"
as to getting in the service and promotion within. Political "pull" ls the last
of all necessities to getting on now. It
is the friendly or personal "pull," and
above all the sporting "pull." The
Capital lacrosse team ls instanced as a
prominent example, and sarcastic refer*
ences made to Its amateurism and British tour.
The article ls as follows: Space forbids examination Into tbe Individual
merits and evils of these "pulls," but
there is one of tbem in particular that
deserves special notice, because lt seems
to be so easily operated, and because
those who have succeeded by it bave
such a good time afterwards, lt is the
sporting "pull." As a single example
Is often time more Instructive than a
whole essay, we will draw from the
Capital lacrosse team, which has recently been enjoying a royal old time
and triumphal marcb throughout Oreat
Britain. The members ot 'tbls team
are, of course, amateur players; It Is
only the lacrosse they play tbat ls professional. The name of the team is a
misnomer; lt should be called the Civil
Service team of Canada, for, if we are
correctly informed, all but one of the
members are civil servants. Sport, lf lt
be of a right kind and under honorable
conditions, is both useful and admirable; but this grand tour of the Capitals to the Mother Country lacks both
the propriety and Independence tbat are
wont to grace clean amateur sport. If
the members of this team are public
servants, should they not be at their
desks doing their work, or iB lacrosse a
branch of some of the departments of
the public service? Their leave of absence is currently said to be three
months. Who are doing their work
during this time? Or ls their work of
such small importance that it can be
permitted to fall behind, or be dispensed with altogether? Are they receiving government pay during their
absence? In fine, are these young men
to be regarded as civil servants of
standard merit and usefulness, or merely as national athletes fed and favored
by the government? Wltb their salaries
running on and the emoluments derived
from playing lacrosse, these exponents
of Canada's national game are doing
pretty well���for amateurs. Who, then,
cap doubt or deny the power or* tbe
sporting "pull?" Young men and women, pass the qualifying examinations
lf you like, but get tbe "pull."
In the making of promotions, too, the
sume disregard tor the provisions and
spirit of the Civil Service Act prevails.
Kllieleney, length of service, and Just
order of succession are of little account
when up against the "pull." Thus, tho
promotion examinations have beon
brought into contempt and deprived of
their value and eftect. The saying Is
common among civil servants with regard to these examinations, and those
who conduct them: "Oh, if you are to
be promoted you'll pass." Men who
have given years of efficient service are
passed over by new men who have the
pull, while capable servants who have
not the pull are superannuated to make
place tor those who have.
The newly appointed civil service
commission is now sitting. Other civil
service commissions have sat before,
and that was about all they did id addition to drawing their salary. It Is to
be hoped that this one will get down
to solid work, and bring about a mens-
ure ot relief and contentment to that
long-suffering body, the civil servants
ln Ottawa. It Is further to be hoped
that the reiiort of the commissioners on
the increased cost of living and present
conditions will afford the opportunity
and data for the city to open negotiations with the government, with a view
to a more equitable financial understanding, and on a fairer basis than that
which at present prevails. Tbe tact
that the civil servants here are citizens
of Ottawa gives tbe city a right to take
an interest In their affairs, and at the
same time to forward Its own Interests,
which are theirs as well.
lt Ib suid that the order In-council
under which the commission is appointed gives it very wide powers; but these
wide pnws'is do not appear to extend to
the questions of how appointments to
positions In the civil services are made.
And yet this may reasonably be considered the beginning of al] the trouble,
just us the questions of salaries und
promotions are the continuance of lt.
The service Is made up of an aggregation of appointments, and these appointments honor or discredit the minister
who makes tbem, just as they are In accord with the provisions of the Civil
Service Act, or in violation thereof, and
Just as they are efficient or Incompetent,
it Ib the .appointments that give tone,
complexion and action to the whole service, and for them the ministers themselves must be beld solely responsible.
But bow are many���wonld lt be too
much to say most?���of these appointments made? Any schoolboy or schoolgirl In Ottawa will tell you you can get
Into the service if you only bave the
"pull." But which "pull?" There appear to be so many. To mention those
most frequently In operation, there Is
the social "pull" gradually coming to be
recognized as the exclusive property of
a section of the fashionable set who are
desirous of serving their country;
there Is the sporting "pull," which supplies the brawn and sinew deemed necessary in certain ministerial circles to
wield a pen, thump a typewriting machine and handle the more ponderous
matters In tbe departmental offices;
there Is tbe personal or friendly "pull,"
the last resource of the time-servers
and sycophants, and there is the "pull"
politically, which of late years has come
to be regarded as tbe weakest "pull" of
all. It Is a fact notorious that positions ln the service are continually secured by one or other of these pulls,
or by some adroit combination of them,
and this utterly regardless of the requisite qualifications or technical knowledge. Graduates from the civil service
examinations are legion, but the positions go to those who have the "pull."
As for political or party service, the
only time when lt seems to have any
show at sll ls during:the exciting and
promising days that -Immediately precede an election.
Revised   Programme   of   Meetings   of
Farmers' Institute in Nelson District
A change has had to be made ln the
programme of meetings of the Farmers'

G. G. McLaren, secretary has received a letter from J. R. Anderson,
deputy minister of agriculture, revising

other four meetings will be attended by
Mr. Fraser and the Rev. W. E. Dunham
of this place, who Is far and away the
best poultry man we have ever had, and

ernment recommendations and will restore tho officers and men without in
sisting on any penalties.

Petition Presented to Government
Agent for Better Mean
of Transportation.
The project of building a good wagon
road Into tbe Sheep Creek valley has
been mooted for several years. Its ad-
tages are obvious and tbe only good
reason for delay ao far bas been the
necessity for the most rigid economy In
provincial expenditure.
The agitation ls op again ,thls time
in very tangible form. A petition was
presented yesterday to Harry Wright,
government agent, by R. C. Alexander
of Salmo, signed by every business man
of Ymir,' Salmo and Erie.
The Sheep Creek valley contains already such well-known developed and
shipping mines as the Queen, Yellowstone, Kootenay Belle) Mother Lode and
Nevada. There are scores' ot other
prospects still undeveloped because
they are more remote, and the coat of
getting In machinery for development
is greater than the present owners can
But there has always been, for the
last three years, a very considerable
force of men employed to the valley.
Their means of communication even
with Salmo, the nearest point on the
railway line, are inadequate.
The Interest of Nelson in the enterprise lt greater than at first appears.
The trade of the Balmon valley belongs
to Nelson. No arrangement of transportation service can take lt away. Tbe
whole district from Ymir to the American boundary ta rich in minerals, timber and agricultural lands. The district
is capable of great development and
every gain It makes will be a gain to
Nelson. Nothing will contribute more
effectively or more Immediately to such
development than adequate means of
communication - and transportation
among Its various parts.
There is a apeclal reason why a road
should be .built through the Sheep
Creek valley, which stretches towards
tbe American line, and which might if
neglected from the Kootenay aide, become commercially tributary to North-
port and Spokane.
The petition of the business men of
Ymir, Salmo and Erie deserves every
Biipport that the business men of Nelson can give lt, and will undoubtedly receive favorable consideration from tbe
provincial government, which has already dealt most generously with other
parts of Ymir district

With today's issue The Daily Canadian enters on its second year of publication.
The past year has been one of varying
fortunes but on the whole a successful
The Dally Canadian entered the world
ot newspaperdom at a time when many
doubted if Nelson were big enough to
support one daily newspaper. The
great majority were quite certain that
a second daily could not possibly sur
viTe three months.
Ilb flrst year has demonstrated lhat
there is in Nelson a field for a live
newspaper that will furnish accurate
and reliable newg of the world
The year has been one of tic:-- .:���
and ptress. There were times when the
financial horizon was not tna from
clouds, when circulation was unoertaic
and advertising patronage fluci uit tine

Tfce fire: aim of The Canadian is to as
sift in promoting the welfaie of Nelsor
and of Koolenay by ttfatf legjuma:*
means, t'sually that purpose may be
followed with offence to Done, but when
the inieresis of Nelson and ihose of
other cities or districts conflicted, we
hare not shrunk from vigorous eham
plonship of Nelson's cause.
Because we be.ieve that tbe interests
of Nelson coincide with the larger interest of British Columbia and of Canada.
and believe that the interests of British Columbia and of Canada wil] be best
���erred by the success of the policies
and ideals of the Conservative pany of
Canada, and for no other reason, we
have given, and shall continue to give,
consistent support to that party so long
as we are able to approve of iu policy
and leaders.
At all times our aim has been to give
to the public, at the earliest possible
tlAjte. all news of public Interest, accu
rately and as fully as the public interest
demands and to comment upon current
events and tendencies intelligently,
fairly and without prejudice or malice.
We print today a despatch from Ottawa containing a summary of a trenchant
article on the corruption of the Canadian civil service. By a peculiar coincidence our local contemporary printed
this morning an editorial from the Toronto News on the same subject- The
latter is almost wholly expository, showing bow the civil service might be made
clean and efficient, and filing as examples the successful efforts made in
other lands.
Canadians have never doubted Un
liossibility, but under present circumstance's ihey may be pardoned for
scepticism as to the probability of an;
serious attempt being made.
Reform of the civil service was one of
the pre-election pledges of the Canadian
Liberal party, but alas: so was Tre*
Trade as they have it in England.' so
wa= Retrenchment and Economy, so
wfes Purity m Elections, so was tbe
Sacredness of Provincial Rights.
When aJi the other pledges have been
trampled under fool without remorse ot
shame, there is no ground for the expectation that Civil Service Reform Mtt
_*ave any different fate under LJberaj
On this, as on other subjects, il is
o;��en to politicians of the Fielding and
Emmerson type to reion that they are
ao: the only sinners.
Conservatives must sorrowfully admit
that the civil service bad under their regime heen used for tbe purpose of rewarding pany service.
But there are depths sounded by the
Liberals to which Conservatives never

be. a factor in popular education. The
allocation of a specific amount for the
payment of a competent instructor was
s wise move, made at the instance cf
Alderman Seious. Possibly this is an
opponune time to suggest to the executive of the band that "rag-time" airs
have no educational value for eitber musicians or aodience.

Success of Crop Depends on Favorable
Winnit-eg. June 4.���F. W. Haultain.
of Regina. ex-premier of the Northwest
Territories. speaXlng of the crop outlook
in the Wesl, stated that the general conditions had experienced a great improvement during the past week because of
the favorable weather and the abundance of rainfall.
The farmers of the older, settled districts, while not disposed to look upon
the situation with alarm, are well aware
that matters have been formerly unfavorable, and tbat practically everything
depends upon the conditions which will
exist during the next few weeks. IWth
everything favorable for rapid growth
from now on, however, it is generally-
conceded that the possibilities for a
good crop are as favorable as could be
expected. While no growth mentionahle
has as yet taken place, this same condition existed in numerous instances in
practically all otber years, even when
the grain had been sown three weeks
before it was this year.
The farmers do not look for any
growth worthy of mention before the
last week in May or the first of June.
As It is, Mr. Haultain says ihat the
prospects are very favorable.
