Kingston, Jamaica. April 11.���The
commercial delegates of Canada have
completed their tour of thc Windward
and Leeward islands, ln a conference
at Ilarbadoes the delegates expressed
the opinion that efforts should he made
!���) establish reciprocal trade arrangements between llrltlsh West Indes and
the Dominion. The delegates Beemed
lo have arrived at the conclusion, afler
examining the various tariff! of the llrltlsh possessions in' this part of the
world, that at present Canada Is not
receiving fair play In thc West ir'**8���
that the tarlffB press more hardly ss*'
the products of thc Dominion than on
the manufactured goods of the Mother
Country���and -consequently they suggest thnt the manufactures nnd products of Canada should be placed on the
same basis as all olher llrltsh products.
Thai Canada has Just cause to complain against this state of things ls the
opinion expresBed among the business
men of this colony. If our schedules of
Import duties are closely scrutinized It
will be found that Ihe minimum amounts
have to bo paid on munufctured goods,
and the maximum amounts on flour,
meat, food products, or, generally speaking, the necessaries of life. No* the
Mother Country Is our principal source
of supply for all manufactured goods
On tho other hand, Canada and the
United Suites are our chief sourceB of
supply for tho necesarles of life. Hut
whereat the goods which are manufactured In Kngland come Into this Island
on an Import duty of IC l!-:i per cant,
Hour has lo pay a specllc duly of |2
por barrel, and keroslne oil lias to pay
a specific duty which works out at
something like 120 per cenl lt Is not
dllllcult to perceive that such a state
of affairs when fully understood musl
he reverse of satisfactory to the exporters both of Canada and the United
Statea. Within recent years the Dominion hns boen granting u preference
to sugar produced In the llrltlsh West
Indes, with the resuli lhal practically
the whole of the sugar manufactured In
Ihis Island Is now going to Halifax, instead of New York, Canada, however,
enjoys no reciprocal advantage. If It
Is taking a larger percentngo of our total exports It Is nol sending any more
o' its products to our shores in exchange for them. And sooner or later
Canadians will argue, "why should we
holster up the trade of the West Indian
colonies If the effect Is simply lo enable
lho colonists to Import larger quant I-
tloo of manufactured nrllclcs from
Great Hritain?"
Canadians will shortly havo an opportunity of seeing In the flesh Sir .lames

Moors Alarmed.
Paris, April 11��� The official despatch-
ea    received    from Fez say that the
1-rench claims were presented to the
Sultan March :ird. The news of the occupation of Oiiilja by French troops arrived at the Moorish capital March 29lh,
the day the column entered Moorish
territory, The impression prevails that
the Sultan will concede all the French
demands. The energetic action of
France caused consternation among the
court entourage at Fez, and Is expected
to insult In a prompt reply, but no official
notification of its nature has vet arrived here.
SPREADING THE GOSPEL.
Sir   Robert   Cranston   Advocates   New
Form of Imperialism.
Toronto, April 10��� The Imperial Idea
was eloquently elucidated before the
Empire Club at the St. Charles Hotel
by Sir Robert Cranston, ex-Lord Provost of Edinburgh. He took It for
granted that laying aside petty and paltry considerations, they were all looking for a united llrltlsh Empire. While
not ln sympathy with the present British government he had no doubt but
that lis members were true and thorough gentlemen ln every respect, capable business men, with the best interests of -he Empire at heart. A difference of opinion on public questions was
always allowable, however, and one of
tbe most important questions, debated
every since 1884, was the cry of Ireland for the Irish and Scotland for the
Scotch. The speaker didn't believe a
word of It. There was no such thing in
any policy looking to the well-being of
the country. lie favored local self-government as far as lt possibly could go,
for lt was Impossible to legislate at one
central point for all the countries under
the Hritish Hag. He referred to lhe
great Increase in the number of English-
speaking people, but with the language,
he also wanted the Hritish character
to go, so that there would he a Hritish
nation all over the world.
What he woud like to see was a parliament of all UritlBh people, with delegates from every country, meeting iu
London, or in Toronto, perhaps. There
should always be someone iu the government of the Empire thoroughly acquainted with conditions in every outlying portion of the Empire. He also
wanted to se free trade all over the
world, and Canada should be willing to
open its ports lo Britain. In many respects he upheld the Ideas of Joseph
Chamberlain, but uot in all, as he would
give free entrance to all British products and foodstuffs. He thought Can-
aslians shuuld impress on the world that
they were Canadians and not Americans. He closed with an appeal for unselfish work for the general welfare of
the Empire os opposed to party advantage, saying that one of the greatest
calamities that could occur would be
the breaking off or disunion of any of
the colonies. That would Boon result
,n the disruption of lho Empire. The
loyalily displayed in the South African
War had bound England more closely
tn Canada than anything else. Today
the British banner was more respected
than*ever, and to the colonies must be
ascribed a great share of the credit.
Shoplifting.
Instances of shoplifting in NelBon aro
rare, but one case of the kind occurred
yesterday. An elderly woman entered
a down town store in the morning, and
when she believed the clerk was not
looking, slipped severnl small articles
Into her satchel. It so happened that
the. clerk had been paying special at
tcntion to Ihe old lady, and Immediately
accused her o.f having stolen the artl
cles In hor possession. She confessed
her guilt, but snld she was not the only
woman In Nelson who was In the habll
of picking up things In lhal way. The
police were notllled of the theft, bul
the proprietor relented, and tho woman
wus allowed to depart In peace. She
Is well known In the city, and regarded
by mnny as being rather eccentric.

STILL lfi-DOUBT
Jury in Thaw Case Wants
Evidence Again.
MANY RUMORS AFLOAT
Professional Goesscr Predicts Dis-
Agreement���Prisoner Still
Expects Acquittal.
New York, April 11.���Dawn found
the 12 men who are charged wltb the
duty of finding Harry K. Thaw guilty
or not guilty of Stanford White's
death at his hands last June, still
locked up within the jury room in the
criminal courts building. They bad
been confined there since 11:20 laat
night, and they had the case committed to them shortly after 5 o'clock yesterday. Fewer rumors than usual are
filtering from the court house when a
great case is being tried, but scant and
comparatively valueless as these reports were, their trend was all fn the
direction of disagreement. Of course
guesses, some of them based on shrewd
deductions, and soAie of them on mere
hearsay, were not Infrequent. Daniel
O'Reilly, one of the prisoner's lawyers,
who has been credited with a successful forecasting of tbe way the jury
stood in the Nan Patterson case, said
that the jury stood ten for acquittal and
two for murder In the flrst degree. Mr.
O'Reilly was also convinced that the
Jury would agree by 10:30 o'clock. As
for the defendant the cheerfulness and
gayety wblch marked his recovery from
the gloom which almost overwhelmed
him when District Attorney Jerome excoriated his wife, and Justice Fitzgerald solemnly adjured the jury to do
tbelr duty, remained with him until
late into the night. Indeed, through
Clifford W. Hartrldge, his personal
counsel, he sent a message to one of
the newspapers, which quotes him as
declaring that he had the absolute conviction thnt he would be acquitted, and
added: "I fear no electric chair, nor the
mad house, for my act was justifiable."
After what is believed to have been
a fruitless night of discussion and hal-
lotting, the jury ln the case of Harry K.
Thaw was liberated from the conference room at 7 o'clock and taken out to
breakfast. The night had been a hard
one for many of the jurors and the
strain of the long trial and the longer
hours of deliberation upon a verdict
plainly showed on their pale faces and
reddened eyeB. The Jury, locked up to
consider a ca.su is given no comforts.
The Thaw jury has been a cheerful
body of men but today their countenances wore a serlouB look of men at
Issue with one another. There was nothing ln their demanor to denote that
they had reached any sort of conclusion. Justice Fitzgerald's charge of yesterday gave the Jury the choice of four
verdicts and it was said this morning
that the disagreement of the Jury may
havebad to do with the degree of their
verdict as much aB with the broader
queation of guilt or innocence. If the
Jury should come Into court today and
report their disagreement, there Is little doubt that Justice Fitzgerald will
send the 12 men mack to continue their
deliberations.
After deliberating for more than 18
hours without being able to reach a decision, the jury, into whose hands the
fate of Harry K. Thaw was given at
5:17 o'clock yesierday afternoon, reported before Judge Fitzgerald at 11 a.
m. today and asked permission to examine many of the exhlbltB Introduced during the trial, and also asked to have
read to them the (eBtlmony of several
oi the eye-witnesses to the tragedy.
Among the exhibitB called for wero
the.letters which Harry Thaw wrote
to Attorney Longfellow shortly after It
is alleged lhat Evelyn Neablt told him
in Paris the story of her relations with
Stanford White, and the will and codicil which Thaw executed the night of
hlB marriage lu PlttBburg, on April 4th,
1906.
The letters and will wore Introduced
hy Ihe defence lo allow that mental
storm which lt Is claimed was brought
upon Ihe defendant by the narrative the
girl related. The jury also aaked for
the diagram, of Madison Square roof
garden as It was the night Thaw killed
White.   This diagram was held up be
fore them as the court stenographer
read from the official record of tbe testimony the evidence given by James
Clinch Smith, the brother-lnlaw of Stan-
ford White, to whom Thaw talked for
more than half an hour the night of the
tragedy.
The evidence read included that of
Meyer Cohen, the music publisher
whom Mr. Delmas had quoted in his
summing-up address as saying thnt
that Thaw, after he had sent White to
his death, held ont his arms in tho
shape of a cross as a priest, might do ut
some sacrlflcal ceremony, the testimony of Henry 8. Plaze, of Paul Brudl,
the flremen who disarmed Thaw, and
other witnesses.
At 11 o'clock the jury came In for
further instructions and asked for
exhibits.
The action of the Jury In asking for
tesltimony of the eye witnesses of the
eye-witnesses of the tragedy led to
many conjectures. One of these was to
the eftect that the jury wanted to fix
ln lta mind either tbe question of deliberation and premeditation on Thaw's
part or else the rationality of his acts.
The plan of tbe garden was held up and
the testimony read to them.
The trial which began January 23rd
last haa cost New York county many
thousands of dollars, haa blocked the
criminal calendar more than at any
time for many years, and has kept the
jurors away from their business interests for an interval which in several
cases has meant a serious financial loss
to them. All these things being taken
into consideration will, it ia believed,
induce Justice Fitzgerald to hold the
jury at Its task until all hope of a verdict is given up. In the event of a mistrial Thaw would be remanded to the
tombs to await a second trial. This
would mean another Bummer for him
in the city prison, for his case could
not be reached again, even with extraordinary pressure applied, until early
In tbe coming fall.
When the newspaper men came near
the Tombs this morning and sent a
message to Thaw asking him how he
felt, he said he was still confident and
hopeful of a favorable outcome. It was
said that he had a good night's rest
after returning to his cell shortly before midnight. This morning the guards
at the tombs Bald Thaw was packing up
his effects ready to leave the prison at
a moments notice, should the hoped
for acquittal become a fact.
It waa two,minutes pas nine o'clock
when the jury returned to the criminal
court building from their breakfast.
Their meal seemed to have cheered
them up. They were Jaughing and talking among themselves* and seemed to
have the frown'of depression off their
faces. The twelve men went at once
to the Jury room, where they had spent
the night, and again to their deliberations.
Thaw today sent this note to the
newspaper men: "I am told that it ls
Impossible to tell what any jury will
do, so I am attending to my ordinary
affairs and preparing for the best, as
it is simpler to unpack my things, if
necessary, than it would be to return
here for them if the verdict is favorable.
I had a very good cold bath. The bath
room always is filled with fresh air
ln the early morning���with the same
temperature as outdoors. Next I had
weak coffee and rolls as usual. These
details must hare Interest as they are
often ralstold.
(Sigued)     HAKRY K. THAW."
Meyer Cohen la the witness whom
Mr. Delmaa quoted as having testified
that Thaw threw out his armB In the
figure of a cross after killing Stanford
White.
The jury also asked that the tesi-
mony of Harry 8. Plaze, another eyewitness of the tragedy be read to them
and thia was ordered done. As to exhibits, Foreman Smith said the jury
desired the originals of Thaw's letter,
will and codicil, as they were Important copy. All were furnished. AU the
members of the Thaw family are in
court. Thaw came In carrying an armful of newspapers he bad been Industriously reading. The jury's action is
taken to Indicate there Is still a possibility of a verdict being reached,
though not soon.
The testimony of Paul Brudl, the
fireman who took the revolver from
Thaw immediately after the killing, was
read to the Jury. The testimony of
Gordon Paxton, the engineer of the
roof garden, was also read.
The Jiiry'then aBked for the testimony
of Jamea Clinch Smith, Stanford
White's brolher-ln-lnw. who had n long
conversation with Thnw an the roof
garden a few minutes before (he shooting.   Mr. Smith's evidence was read.

Cobalt, April 11.���The big discovery
on the Temiskaming and Hudson Bay
to the northwest ot the town, has aet
all the mines in the vicinity digging
and trenching.
The U. 8. Mining company baa 40
acres in the first concession' of Burke
and 40 in the third. They are considerably gratified by the find on the Temiskaming and Hudson Bay as their
boundary line on lot 7 is only 200 feet
from the new discovery.
Mine managers who have not yet installed new machinery are becoming
worried. The rapid thaw will soon rot
the ice and aome ofthe shipping mine*
have no roads from Cobalt that do not
pass over lakes. These will either have
to wait until the heavy machinery can
be ferried across the lake or tediously
cut and grade new roads.
A small calcite stringer has been cut
in cross-cutting at the 100-foot level on
tbo Amalgamated Cobalt property.
About 20 feet of cross-cutting has been
done and a station ls now under construction. A small boiler and half duplex compressor plant to run six drills
is now on the cars for the Victoria
mine. It should be Installed and working in two or three weeks.
The Right-of-way is now engaged engaged in clearing out of No. 1 shaft the
ore from the Tlmmins drift
The Nipisslng Is still withholding

company. At no mine In iho camp haa
there been such rapid development.
Slartlng from the east tbe buildings
uow up are the cobb-house, a blacksmith shop, 16 x 20, oil house, machine
shop, and next to the office the powerhouse, 5C feet by 36 feet. It will accommodate two one hundred horse

000 acres, with their royalties, waa not
an excessive provision for a university

LAURIER  AND  CORRUPTION.
The Liberal press and Liberal orators
of Uie Dominion nevor weary of proclaiming the virtues and high standard
of personal honor of Sir Wilfrid Laurier. They seem to think that the clean
;ter��ona! record of their leader ie a
cloak large enough to hide all the sina
of all his followers, and that while ht
is not personally attacked, his name
will be enough to maintain the ptlty.
It is conceded that Sir Wilfrid Laurier (s neither a debauche nor a thief
He has gained no pecuniary BdraotKCI
trom his t^n years tenure of the highest office In ihe gift of the people of
Canada It i.s not many years since a
number of Liberal WB*toq ..nd members of the Commons subscribed a sum
sutlicleat to relieve their leader or financial embarrassment, an act honorable to both givers and recipient.
flut ptftOIMd rlfMinHmtl and hon�� sty
have ribt been so rare among ('ana !.'.'-.
public men as to entitle their possessor
to a pedestal. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, in
h!B character U a man and gentleman.
ha* never yet been attacked. But Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, the leader of a great
party, and for ten years prime t_iir.is.er
of the Dominion, must submit to a higher test.
"A good man but a bad Kin;:.1' a oner
popular description of Charles thu First.
was rldU uled by Lord Macaulay. "A
good man but a bad premier" rests on
no better basis. The leader whose fol
lowers disgrace their cause cannot escape the blame. Sir John Macdonalc
in like case could protest these hand.
are clean," but he did not attempt U
save himself by sacrificing his colleagues in detail. He bore the burden
and the blame and went down with his
party.
Tbe Toronto Qlobe and lti ex-rev-
} erend editor have put forward a singu-
i lar hypothesis that each successive minister's disgrace and fall only makes Sir
Wilfrids virtues shine more brightly.
As well might Dickens' Fagin protest
that he trained the boys to steal merely as a foil to his own spotless innb-
I co nee.
In a recent memorable debate in the
Commons Sir Wilfrid rhetorically,
though not originally, protested that
parliament was the guardian of its own
honor. Mr. Iiorden most justly replied
that the premier was himself its most
responsible guardian, and was in a special sense the custodian of the honor
ot his own cabinet.
In Britain, and surely the standard is
not too high for Canadians to accept,
the leader of a party accepts as a matter of course the fullest responsibility
for the acts not only of his chief colleagues, but of his whole party organization.
It would be cruel perhaps to hold Sir
Wilfrid responsible for such orgies of
political corruption as the last election
of Mr. Hyman in London, and similar
horrors in Brockville. Huron and Elgin.
Uut it is hard to exonerate him from
complicity, even granting that he
sought no personal gains, In such deals
as the Grand Trunk Pacific's attempt to
despoil Kritlsh Columbia, and the organization of the silly Mclnnes crusade
for that purpose.
Sir Wilfrid's idea of personal honor
ls xxj doubt very high, but his idea of
the obligations of friendship and party
association is peculiar It Is not forgotten lhat he was the personal friend,
as well as the political ally, of the no-
t�� rious Count Mercier, and that even
after the full disclosure of the latter's
dishonesty, did all he could to restore
his prestige without unduly risking his
own.
Since 1&96 the country has seen a
long procession of cabinet ministers
come and go. More than half of the
resignations���so called by courtesy���
have been due to public dishonesty or
private immorality.
It fs Impossible to avoid the suspicion
that the fall of ministers has been due
not to their character or their offences
���they could not have been unknown to
Sir Wilfrid���but to the fact that they
were discovered.
The plea of innocency entered on behalf of Sir Wilfrid is of no more avail
than the same plea put forward by Mr,
Hyman.   An boneit man will no more
accept the benefits of theft than steal
himself. The Liberal party has been
maintained in power by a system of organized corruption of which its leader
cannot   plead ignorance.
It is Sir Wilfrid Laurler's imperative
and immediate duty to cleanse his party
in parliament at least, and in the civil
service, of the open and notorious evil
doers. If he cannot or dare not do that,
let him step aside and make way for
mm who can and will.
J. A. Macdonald bas sounded the
depths of political pettiness in the few
wetks of this session of the legislature
in which opportunities for opposition
have been very few. His choice of issues has bean singularly fatuous oven
for him. The Better Terms resolution
and the University Endowment bill
should have been passed unanimously,
at least as far as Conservatives and Liberals are concerned. On both tho Socialists are committed to the declaration that until "The Revolution" is
achieved they have no interest in anything. On the Better Termi* resolution
the people of the province had spoken
decisively. Mr. Macdonald admitted it.
He could not pretend to disagree with
its declaration. But he chose to quarrel with the wording of the preamble.
Mr. Macdonald's peculiar theories on
phraseology are of no particular interest to any one but himself, but the calibre and capacity of his following may
be judged from the fact that they followed him to a man. His course on the
University Endowment bill is still more
reprehensible. Provision for higher education will never evoke the enthusiasm
of the general public. It must always
depend upon the efforts of an en'ight-
ened few. Here again Mr. Macdonald
concedes the wisdom of the general purpose of the bill but quarrels with the
methods proposed and wants a less generous provision. There are but two possible explanations; either Mr. Macdonald's mind is so narrow that he really
and sincerely feels impelled into such
courses, or he is opposing for mere obstruction's sake. If we could determine
which explanation is tbe more charitable to Mr. Macdonald we would cheerfully adopt it.
The Associate Press reports from
New York are conflicting and confusing,
alternately announcing acquittal and
disagreement by the jury in the Thaw
murder trial. It s��_*eius certain, however, that today or tomorrow at the
latest will see the end of one of tbe
most squalidly disgusting sensations
that have ever wasted the time even of
American criminal courts. It has beeu
from beginning to end a story of low
life, all the lower because of its luxurious setting. The life lived by Stanford
White and Harry Thaw���they differed
not at all in morals but only in intelligence���is a national disgrace. The motive of the murder was mere animal
jealousy and Mr. Delmas paid his countrymen a poor compliment by calling it
Dementia Americana. The trial reflects
no credit on either of the eminent counsel engaged. Mr. Delmas' fulsome
praise of the murderer as a modern St.
George, was an Insult tto the intelligence of the jury. Mr. Jerome's denunciation of him as "a common,, tenderloin murderer" rings false after his
impassioned declaration of hfs conviction that Thaw was and is insane. The
natural reflection from it all Is that the
administration of criminal law in the
United States leaves much to be
desired.
Attention of citizens is gradually being concentrated on the problem of effective dealing with juvenile depravity
in Nelson. Instances of pilfering and
destruction occur daily. While there
is no doubt that the blame lies entirely
with the parents who shirk all their responsibilities in the matter, the duty
nf curbing such lawlessness lies with
the city police authorities. Let the first
boy convicted be fined a substantial
sum, wi'h the alternative of a month in
gaol.   The parent who pays the fine will

Sketch of Conservative Member Whose
Speech Caused Emmerson's
Resignation.
Looking down ou the houne of Commons at work with its two hundred odd
members gathered from the four corners of the Dominion, und belonging to
the various classes and races composing our population, a spectator would
Bcarcely select Mr. Geo. W. Fowler, of
King's and Albert, N. U��� aB the embodiment of parliamentary amiability and
line feeling; aud if one made such a
selection he would lind alter listening
u day or two to the debates that he had
made a mistake. Mr. Fowler'B face is
certainly a strung one. there is much
determination in it, great will power
antl keen intelligence, but withal it Is
the fact of a man who makes his way
by means of strenuous pusbfulness
rather than by conciliation and sunny
smiles. When he is on his feet in tlie
Mouse everything about tlie man suggest that he is the adversary of some
one. "Belligerent" Ib stamped all over
him, on everything he says or does. His
whole attitude Ib that of a fighter. His
gestures are always emphatic and there
is a good deal of the clinched fist and
swinging arm about them. His tone,
when not taunting, Is defiant and he
rings out what he has to Bay with a
clearness that leaves no doubt as to his
meaning. Mr. Fowler belongs to that
class commonly known aB "born fighters." His ability in this direction has
had during the present session pretty
full scope.
The general elections of 1900 gave
Mr. Fowler a seat ln the house of commons. He won it by a majority of 183,
and four years later he held it by a
majority of 369. The constituency seems
to be pretty safe for the sitting
member. Col. Domvllle, now in the
senate, represented it during four parliaments and II was there that the Hon.
Geo. E. Foster won bis first victory in
1882, when he was elected as an Independent Conservative. He was also returned In 1887 and in 1891.
Before coming to Ottawa Mr. Fowler
had sat for King's in the New Brunswick legislature, so that he entered the
federal arena with a good preliminary
training apart from lhat which he received in the law courts.
WANTS NAVIGATION LAW3.
Col. Denlaon'i Proposal to Develop Big
Naval Reserve.
Toronto, April 11.���Lieut. Col. G. T.
Denlson in addressing the annual dinner ot Lodge, Commercial, S. O. E. B. S.
in the St. Charles hotel made a strong
plea for tbe passing of navigation laws
for compelling all trade between the
colonies and dependencies of the Empire to bo carried in British bottoms.
He reviewed, the history of the marl-
u.*s>e powers in the past, showing lhat
their supremacy lay in the command
of the sea. The flag of Holland 200
years ago flew on 10,000 of the 20,000
vessels then engaged in the commerce
of the world, and England had taken a
great part of this trade from the Netherlands by her navigation laws. Lleut-
Col. Denlson then told of his campaign
against commercial union with the
United States, and for preferential
trade within the Empire, and expressed
the belief that afler the pre-ent generation of British politicians had passed
away, or even before then, his doctrine
would have become au accomplished
fact.
Hon. Dr. R. A. Pyne thought the
school children could not be taught to
have enough respect for the Union Jack
and he intended, through tho public
schools to inculcate ln their breasts tho
proper reverence for it.
