tic circles, and ahe endeared herself
i" Neapolitan* not only by her aurpas-
���lag   beauty,   but   by   her   benefit 06.

followed by that of the valet.
According to their version, the old
duke, just before breathing his last,

Valerlano and the bonds to the valet.
The valet, needing ready money, gave
a parcel (,i tlie bonds to ValurMuu, who

Chicago, April 16.���A temporary Injunction restraining officials of railroads
from putting Into effect an advance of
100 per cent, in milk and butter freight
rates was granted by Judge Kohlsaat
here yesterday ln the United States
circuit court. The bill for a permanent Injunction was filed by the Butter
and Creamery company and the Blue
Valley Creamery fallowing an announcement by tbe Michigan Central, Orand
Trunk and Pere Marquette roads of 100
per cent, advance. In the bills the
roads were accused of conspiracy to
raise the rates in violation of tbe Sherman anti-trust law. The advance was
scheduled to go Into effect today but
the injunction will prevent any change
of rates until the hearing of the case
far the permanent injunction comes up.

Wednesday,    April    15,    1907.
The followers of the present Dominion government never weary of claiming for Sir Wilfrid Laurler and Mr.
Sifton entire credit for the developmeni
of the Canadian west. Mr. Slfton's
connection with It is obvious and is
unders'ood lo have been a very profitable connection for him. It must also
be conceded that It has been profitable
to the west. Mr. Slfton's adminlfitra
Hon and his policy which Frank Oliver
still tries to follow, are good for th<
west, though Canadians cannot help
feling ashamed that one ot their ablest
public men paid himself so liberally in
It is perhaps not known to those who
now acclaim Mr. slfton's work, it is
evidently unknown even to Duncan
Rosa, that Mr. Sifton's policy was a
complete reversal or the traditional.
Liberal treat ment of the west. II Ib not
twenty years yet since Sir Richard
I'artwright was telling American audiences, with the evident lull approval of
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, that the Canadian
prairies were a frozen waste, unflt for
human habitation, and be frothed at the
mouth when Sir Charles Tupper predated that he would live to Bee the Northwest produce 100,000,000 bushels of
The uccepted view of the west among
the Liberals, down to 1898, was of a
place where Conservative governments
squandered money to Had useless work
for favorites to do.
Mr.   SI 11 on,   knew   better.    He  Knew
the capabilities of the west and appreciated the wisdom of Conservative
treatment of it. Fortunately he was
strong enough in the cabinet to make
his views prevail although It involved
some very vigorous swallowing for most
of his colleagues Including Sir Wilfrid
In his recent speech on the budget.
In reply to Mr. Foster. Mr. Sitton airily
waved all such matter away "to the
limbo of forgotten things." It Is a
very convenient and comforting thing
to be able to do. From Mr. Slfton's
iwlnt of view It is hair justified. He
was not responsible for the imbecilities
of Sir Richard Cartwright. To be sure
he endorsed them for election purposes
in the east. It was dishonest of course,
bue we have never detected any symptom of respect for honesty ln Mr. Sifton's   career.
When a man like Duncan Ross tells
a Liberal nominating convention that
Sir Wilfrid Laurler's policy has made
the west, he Is talking nonsense. It
was Mr. Sifton's masterful appropriation of Conservative policy at a favorable opportunity that has enabled the
west to flourish as It has within the
past tew years. The most charitable,
and by long odds the most likely, Intel pn ration Ib that Duncan doesn't
really  know any better.
The Ontario government has decided
that the general elections shall be held
all on one day. There Is no reason
why the same should not be done in
lhe Dominion elections except that
���Otne Liberal candidates are alrald of
a straight decision, and want bye-elections.
The Liberals of Yale-Cariboo have
unanimously renominated Duncan Ross
as their candidate for parliament. Dun-
��� an probably, from a Liberal polntTif
view deserves tba doubtful honor. No one
c lUld conceive of him taking any attitude   but  one  of  slavish   unquestioning
obedience to his party leader Tbe silly
adulation of the resolutions adopted by
the nominating convention, and the
thuroutrh-goiug acceptance of every act
of Liberals and condemnation of every
act of Conservatives, are familiar phenomena in connection with such gatherings.
After all the flagrant dishonesty that
has been exposed at Ottawa within the
last few months, a vote to sustain the
Laurier government would be equivalent   to  compounding  a   felony.

Vienna. April 15.���What is probably
one of the most extraordinary cases
of fraud on record Is now being investigated by the Vienna police. They have
arrested a woman named Margaret Erb,
who has for years past been victimising residents in the humbler sections
of this city by giving herself out to be
a prince, forced to adopt female attire
to escape intriguing  relatives.
The accused woman ��� possesses a
STlking personality, and her masculine
features and deep voice helped her ln
gaining credence for her amazing story.
A fluent speaker, and of refined habits,
she firmly convinced scores of people
that she was indeed "Prince Egon,"
as she pretended to be, and from one
shopkeeper and his relatives she obtain nearly $4,000, for the ostensible
purpose of bringing legal proceedings
against princely relatives scheming to
obtain unlawful possession of an imaginary estate worth some millions of
The lmposter went further than this,
and obtained the consent of a respectable merchant to her "marriage" shortly after,with his daughter. The intended bride was completely duped, and
even now declines to believe that her
"lover" Is a woman of forty-six, a
former inmate of a lunatic asylum.

Infant.   Traved    From   Whitehorse    to
Dawson Without Harm.
Dawson, April 15.���Babes of tender-
est age, mere buds ln arms, are coming
over the trail from Whitehorse to Dawson without auy trying experience.
Many a wee kiddle has gone from
Dawson to the outer world wrapped In
the robes on the luxurious stages, and
many a one has come in, and no serious
results have been experienced. If anything, the youngsters thrive and grow
fat on the trips. They can be held ln
arms aa the rig files along over the
Hiiowy rooads, drawn by Ihe four never-
lagging nags, or can be made equally
comfortable tucked away In the bottom
of the stages, close beside a charcoal
foul-warmer. With a large fur robe
wropped eaiefully about the diminutive
humanity, there Ib scarcely any attention   required at tlmeB.
Mr. and Mrs. Neubaumer, of lower
Dominion, who arrived this week,
brought two little ones with them on
on stag*, The youngest child is four
months old  and  the eldest 20  months.
Alairie Seguin, who got in the day before yesterday, brought two samples of
inanity who have more endurance on
the trail than the hardiest man. They
are two youngsters, two and live years
of age respectfully. The children who
are large enough to run about have
more vitality and endurance than older
people, and the majority of them go
without fur coats.
During the trip just made by Mr.
and Mrs. Neubaumer and Mr. and Mrs.
Seguin from Whitehorse the temperature was nearly 50 below zero, the coldest of the winter. Every twenty-five
miles there is a roadhouse at which the
stages stop, so the babies In arms can
be taken out in the middle of the day
and at the end of each day's Journey
and given all the comforts of home until the start ls made behind the big four-
horse team bright and early the next
