The stock market for the past week
has been rather more inactive than for

Now York, Oct. 27.���Washington advices to Ihe Tribune point out thut for
the lirst time In the history of the
United States the sixth article of the
constitution Is to he invoked against
Weal authorities within a state, to
compel respect for the provisions of a
treaty with a foreign power, and the
doctrine of state rights seems destined
to receive the severest blow lt has experienced since the Civil war. Present
administrations have remained helpless In the face of local action, whicli
has seriously embarrassed the nation
In its relations with foreign powers,
and outrages within the boundaries of
the several states have gone unpunished by tbe federal government because
of the belief that the federal government was without Jurisdiction.
It has remained for Elihu Root,
the present secretary of state, to enunciate the iiriuciplc lhat the constitution of the United Stales affords ample authority to com|iel observance by
any state of the provisions of au international treaty.
Article Bl of the constitution of the
United States declares:
This legislation and the laws of the
United States which shall be made in
pursuance thereof, and all treaties,
made or which may be made under the
authority of the United States, shall
be the supreme law of the land. The
judges in every state shall be bound
thereby, anything in tbe constitution
or laws of.the country notwithstanding."
Confident that Searetary of State
Root Is correct In his belief that there
Is full authority under the constitution, the administration will promptly
endeavor to put a stop to the recent
discrimination against Japanese citizens, which local .authorities within
the state of California have been and
are practicing in violation of Article
1 of the treaty of 1894 between the
Japanese empire and the United States
nf America.

Sad Story of Marital Infelicity Ends In
a Tragedy.
New York, Oct. 27.���U>uls G. Hamilton, secretary ot Uie United States
Trust company of this ciiy, shot and
killed Victoria 1. Taczkow, a beautiful
young woman, in the Hotel Griffin ln
West Ninth street last night, and then
committed suicide. Hampton was infatuated with tbe woman and they
had been seen together many times
during the past month. They had
been at the hotel where the tragedy
occurred since early yesterday. Whether it was the result of a pact between
him and the woman to die together
has not been determined, but the circumstances seem to show that tbe
young woman bad agreed to die with
her companion.
Hampton leaves a wife and two children. Mis Taczkow was 29 yeara old
aud lived with her father and invalid
mother. She was employed in a Fifth
avenue department store.
Tbe United States Trust company,
of which L. G. Hampton was assistant
secretary, is one of the largest and
strongest trust companies in New
York. Ex-Secretary of the United
States Treasury Lyman J. Gage was
its president until recently.
The events leading up to the tragedy have been traced by the police and,
according to them, the last chapter In
what looks to be an Illicit romance.
On Thursday afternoon last, Hampton, a distinguished-looking man of medium height, about 60 years old, with
iron grey hair, called at the Hotel
Griffin and engaged a room. He said
he would return later that night or
the next morning and expected to have
his wife with him. Friday morning
about 9 o'clock he entered the hotel
accompanied by a woman, and going
to the office registered as "Mr. and
Mrs. Sinclair, Burlington, Vt." The
woman was an unusually handsome
brunette. She was wearing a tailor-
made skirt, white shirt waist and carried in her hand a small traveling bag.
After registering, the couple went to
the hotel dining room and breakfasted
and then went to their room. The
woman left the} hotel several times
during the day, but Hampton remained
in the room. Soon after Bhe returned
from one of these excursions early in
the evening, a light dinner was sent
Up to their room, and a request was
sent to the clerk to call them at 11
o'clock last nlghl. "We want to be
called at 11 so that we may catch a
train," said Hampton. '
At five minutes to 11 a maid went
to tbe room to call them, but her repeated raps at the door brought no
refliro me, and she notified the hotel of'
rice. Accompanied by the proprietor
she relurned to the third floor and, after lapping several times, opened the
door wl Li her pans key. In an instant
tho L.lenci was explained.
On the floor, betwoen a large mirror
aud a dresser, lay the man, stretched
out on Iiis back. In his right hand was
grasped a revolver, while his Derby
hat was held tightly in the left hand.
Blood was everywhere around him and
a hasty examination proved that a shot
fired into his mouth had entered bis
brain, killing hlm Instantly. On the bed,
half seated and half lying on the edge
nearest hlm, was the woman, also dead
and bathed in blood. Her left arm
lay across her face as though to shield
it, and In tbe arm wore three bullet
wounds. Might under the left armpit
was a fourth wound, tlie result of a
shot fired after she had raised her arm
to her face. The bullet had entered
her body In n downward direction and
must have gone through her heart.

Second Vice Presldenl Kingsley of
the United Slates Trust company said
thai  Hampton's accounts Were correct.
Swlthchmen Refused Increase.
Chicago, III., Oct. 27.���The railroads
today Informed Grand Master Hawley
of the Swlthchmou's union that the demands of tin; men for an eight-hour
day and an Increase in wages would
be refused. Tbe offer of an Increase
of 2 cents an hour was repeated, but
the mon were told mat. this would be
all thoy could obtain. The refusal of
thu de.n]ands of the switchmen was
also made to apply to all other organizations of railroad employees who
have of late presented demands for
shorter hours or Increased wages. It
was made clear In the reply to the
switchmen that the requests of the
Brotherhoon of Railway Trainmen, to
which a reply was asked by Nov'ember
1 will be refused. Grand Master Hawley has called a meeting of the switchmen hero for tonight, but no strike
action will be taken until there has
been a referendum vote.
Nothing Daunts Fallleries.
Paris, Oct. 27.--When Presldont
Fallleries received the members of tho
cabinet, shortly after Us formation, he
made the following statement to M.
Vlviaul, the minister or labor: "No
doctrine, no reform, no    matter   how
bold, frightens me. The government
as constituted must be marched st tlie
head of the democracy, consequently 1
look with pleasure on the creation of
ministry of labor. In the present state
of the economic evolution tn France
such a ministry ls absolutely necessary."
Hindus Arrested for Vagrancy Locked
Up and Refuse Food.
(Special  to The Dally Canadian.)
Grand Forks, Oct. 27.���The Spokane
company that have been working the
Copper King property, up the North
Fork, have discontinued work on that
claim owing to the fact that there appears to be a cloud on the title. It Is
reported that W. K. White, a pioneer
prospector, has a prior right to the
claim, and this fact was only made
known to the present holders recently,
who wero making extensive preparations to work the Copper King all winter and were putting up substantial
winter quarters with that end in view.
Following the report that the Hindus
were In destitute circumstances here
and were bogging from door to door,
is tbe announcement today that some
of these people were last evening taken In charge by Chief of Police Savage and locked up for begging. The
question of dealing with them ls a
problem and It Is probable that an effort will be made to have them deported. A pitiful sight waa witnessed
here when these people were arrested,
as when they realized that they were
really prisoners and were going to be
locked up, they at once fell on their
knees and literally kissed the shoes ot
Chief of Police Savage In their earnest pleadings not to bo locked up.
It is reported today that these Hin-
dues confined In the city gaol on a
charge of vagrancy, absolutely refuse
to eat anything handed to them by the
city police, and it Is feared that they
may suffer unless they can be convinced that the food will not harm
Performance of Westminster Glee Club
Transcend. All Former Concert!
Heard In Nelaon.
"The beat ever heard in Nelson"
was the unanimous verdict of tho
crowd that left Sherman's opera house
this morning���at 12:20 a. m.���after
Ihe performance of the Westminster
Glee Club.
Manager Horstead had an anxious
time early ln the evening, as he assured the public that the concert
would begin as soon as the Crow (boat
arrived���at 9, at 9.30, at 10. As a matter of fact it began at 10:30. But Mr.
Horstead's diplomacy was amply justified by the event He stated afterward thai but for his conviction of
the excellence of the company he
would not havo attempted to hold tlie
When the concert began the house
was well filled. When tt ended no
one regretted having wafted, and all
were pleased to learn that the company would appear again tonight as
well as this ariernoon.
Every member of Ihe party is perfect. The favorite was probably Master Albert Hole. No sweeter or clearer voice was ever heard in Nelson, and
his "Cherry Ripe" will not soon die in
the memory of those who heard It.
Mr. Branscombe's "Rocked in the
Cradle or the Deep," followed by "Och,
the Dear Little Oirl," earned a burst
of applause second only to that which
greeted the boy soloist.
Mme. Marie Hooten's clear, sweet
contralto ln "Down lhe Vale," also delighted hor hearers.
Every number on tho _ program,
sacred, sentimenlnl nnd humorous, was
a gem.
Speclnl praise Is due to Mr. Harry
Ivlmey. Nelson lins heard many humorous entertainers, but none of the
same class ns Mr. Ivlmey. His caricature of drawing room amenities and
of comic opern were exquisite.
As announced elsewhere the company will leave for Ihe const  tonlgjil.

Edward's Dream of World
Peace About to Be Realized in
New Made Alliances.
New York, Oct. 27.���A London despatch to the Sun Bays that the close
secrecy which for a considerable time
has surrounded an event of first magnitude ln international policies ls broken by the announcement that a military convention, which In effect
amounts to a full defensive alliance,
has been made between Great Britain,
France and Italy. This momentous instrument has not nominally come into
effect as yet, but in reality it is already an almost dominating factor In
the European situation. It becomes
operative whenever the triple alliance
between Germany, Austria-Hungary
and Italy, or rather the three treaties
usually grouped under that designation
shall expire, either by expiration ot
time or by other cause.

The freedom of the new international compact has been accompanied by
and forwarded ln spite of various difficulties and even dangers. First and
obviously was the fact that Germany
would regard it not only with natural
resentment but as a direct menace.
It was negotiated on the eve of the
Algeciraa conference, and lt can hardly be denied that Ib was designed to
some extent to act in restraint of Germany at that time.
Its purpose, however, is In every
respect nonaggreqstve and It was and
Is Impossible for the Germane mperor
to criticize except by abandoning his
oft-professed love of peace. The political situation in Europe as a whole
Is more satisfactory today than lt has
been for several years.
Pessimists point to thc fact that the
death of the sultan must he exiiected
within a few months, and that the de
raise of the Emperor Francis Joseph
may create a crisis at any time, bill
the safeguards of peace grow stronger
day by day. King Edward's league of

isiii'i McBride, the attitude or British
��� Columbia has been ut Ottawa, thai uf
a "beggar with hai in hand," thankful
for the driblets of party favors doled
out to ihe representatives of the province.
II must have been a new thing In
federal und Eastern provincial circles
to encounter for the flrsl time a Western premier whose visit was devoid of
sentiment, parOtanshlp, party feeling,
und which meant business from first
to lust. It i.s no wonder thut some of
the Eastern men, who hud never met
anything like this from the West before, should be slurtled Into the Blip-
position that Mr. McBride was too
I'Irm or even that he wus stubborn.
The sudden rebellion of a province
from llie position of u servile suppliant to thai of a people Inhabiting un
immense  area,  demanding  Its  rights,
musi have been almost us great a
shock at Ottawa as the -errands of
tbe Kussuin tlsiiimu were at St. Petersburg.
There can lie no greater tribute I"
the diplomacy ul tlu- premier than the
now admitted fact that Hon. Mr. Fielding offered, its a final compromise, to
use his personal endeavors to secure
an addition lo lhe grain for Hritish
Columbia, which bad been placed In
tin eul and dried" schedule of the
other Libera] premiers. That these
others went to Ottawa with a cut and
dried scheme is umulier evidence of
llss' laet thai the East understands
very well bow the wheels iu the ma-
chine as'' supposed to go round. Tlie
conference with them was a merely
perfunctory affair to give the scui-
blanoe of provincial consent to arrangements prepared blghei up iu tbe
seals of llie mighty.
That the West broke away from

Tin' Toronto News, n paper which
has never lotfl its reputation ror independence and which Is remarkably fair
in lis diseiisslon of all political Issues
arising in Canada has its say upon the
mission of Premier McHrlde In Pre-
Muting the cluinis of Hritish Columbia
ul the inter-provincial conference, He-
moved as tbe News Is from the arena
it partizan conflict and withoul being
in a position to breathe the atmosphere
of tho Wesl its words should tell with
the thoughtful student of the affairs
with which the provincial premiers
dealt.   It says:
"The vagueness with which the Ontario case was put may be compared
witli tbe course pursued by Mr. McHrlde. His province Ib hard up and
does really need the Increase. We must
confess to being much impressed by bis
presentation of the difficulty antl expense of administrating that "Bea of
mountains" with Ha thread of population sifting here aud there through tlie
\alleys, each sparss'ly inhabited valley
meaning enormously eostly roads to link
it witli civilization, and the setting up of
llie machinery ot government. Mr.
McBride really wanted the money; he
knew exactly whin he did want; iio
came prepared with definite und detailed arguments; and lie submitted u
definite proposal. This proposal has,
in our judgment, Improperly been
Blyied an arbitration; us he expressed
it, it was rather au investigation of tho
facts by a competent commission; the
finding uf tluil body might be left to
work its effect upon the governments
oenoerned. Having a elear-eut case,
Mr. MoBrlde muck io it with a tenacity
whicli must increase the interesi which
his fellow-Canadians will lake in him.
Viewed from tlie strictly poiiiieal
Standpoint, his course, ut first sigiil at
ull events, seems clever. Hrltlali Columbia win g.i anyway the Increase
grained to the other provinces. Per-
hups she wil] get tin- additional temporary graut of (100,000 which has
been recommended! U the Federal government refllBOB this it will expose
itself to the imputation of trying to
punish tlie; province for the premier's
contumacy, Meanwhile Mr. McBride
is free to urge his extreme claims, fortified by an express declaration from
all the other provinces tha't British
Columbia's conditions merit exceptional treatment. He has his money und
iiis grievance; could an Irishman be
One aspect of the matter is gratifying. Apprehension was felt that the
Dominion would use the demand tor
money us a lever for an inroad upon
provincial rights. It is probable that
some disjiosiiion to do so existed; but
tlie provinces showed no inclination to
submit, und the only concessions which
they made related to the commercial
travellers' 'tax���confessedly an abuse���
and certain aspects of the taxation of
corpo.alt.ioi|s. This represents a danger escaped. We are by no means
sure, however, of lbe wisdom of the
annual assembly of this conference.
It opens the way for possible developments quite undreamed of In our present constitution; and it may In the
future lend itself to strange uianisfes-
tations, The best safeguard to provincial rights probably will be for provincial ministers to stick to their own
provincial capitalists. "
The king's printer at Victoria has
issued, under authority of the legislative assembly, bulletin No. 10 in a
fifth and new addition. The Information contained is revised and brought
thoroughly up-to-date and the booklet

only does it contain valuable information of the resources of the province
but It has minute directions ub to how-
to reach each point. The cuts aud illustrations are very fine, comprising

The Daily Canadian
Christ's Warning  to Apostles���Effect on
the  Church���Holy    Days���Services
Announced for Tomorrow.
Tomorrow win bu the twentieth Bun-
day alter Trinity, and alBo the festival
or st, Simon anu su Jude.   Thursday
will be All Saints' day, preceded on
Wednesday by All Saint's eve, or All
Hallowe'en, ori^nally this fast, audi aw
by the (.union oi thu church precedes
a!)  holy dayti.
Tile gospel tor St. Simon's ami St.
Jttde's (lay Ib from St. John, a pari
of the later direct teaching of Christ
lu Mis apostles shortly before His as-
oension- especially JIIb warning them
of tbe hostility of the world: "If ye
were of the woild, the world would
love his own: but, because ye are not
of I in* world but 1 have chosen you
oul of the world, therefore, the world
hateth you."
From such teaching the early church
came to think of Itself as a small army
In an enemy's country, with no concern lor worldly prosperity or success.
Us mlBBiou was to win others from
such cares and to keep itself "unspotted from the world." Hence the other-
uotldliness Of the church, resulting,
in individuals, in reuuueiution aud asceticism.
With the revival of Greek learning
at. the end of the fifteenth century the
joy of life, breathed in all Greek art,
melted the austerity of the church,
and then began the opposition of Iwo
forces in Christendom, and an allempt-
ed reconciliation of Chi.stianity with
worldly interesi and activity. Its first
impulse came from a Pagan, and to
that extant, anti-Christian source. The
extreme, perhaps, of tlie attempt to
unite the church and the world may
be found in the demand of Socialists
lhat the church shall side with Labor
In its war against. CapiLal.

Wide Renown, Discusses thc
Sterner  Sex.
Id nn article on Men's Dress, Mrs.
Bessie O'Connor, wife of T. P. Q'Con-
nor, M. i\, says thnt some men are
vain enough to imagine thnt neither
men nor women pay any attention fo
the clothes of the man. There never
was a greater mistake than this. Sure
ly women, who are constantly studying the eut, Uie lines aud the fashion
of Iheir own clothes, necessarily observe lhe cut aud 'the fashion of men'fl
"It was rather the custom of man to
associate the Idea of a well-dressed
man with an empty fop," she forcibly
writes, "but Uio modem man has au
eye for beauty and appropriateness of
attire, combined with greal cleverness
In other directions."
The Seini-ready idea in men's dress
perniltB the w-onrer lo see a suit as it
will look when he wears It. He dons
It al  tlie Semi-ready Wnrdi-obe just ae
ii stands ready to finish up. Tailored
superbly, designed in a smart and cultured style, the fabrics are the best
from England's mills. The modern
man known thaL misfits and cheap
materials are not economical, for one's
success in both social and business life
depends upon good tailoring. There is
a Semi-ready tailoring shop in nearly
all the chief towns of Canada.
J. A. Gilker, the pioneer merchant
ot Nelson, has secured Ihe agency for
the incomparable Semi-ready tailoring.
