grinding out laps in a mechanical manner this morning after au uneventtui

lledell team. Walthour aud Hedeii,
smarting under a decision rendered au
hour earlier, when a spill robbed them
of a lap that they had nearly won,
started out at a mad pace that kept
all the riders bent over their handlebars to do their best, and kept tne
spectators lu a continual roar of cheers
and excitement. Relieving each other
al every few laps, Walthour and lledell kept going at their best pace and
forced the other riders to call on their
partners tor help and relier. Georget
and Stole, whose partners had been
hurt lu the spill at 2 a. in., were the
only riders who could not get reiiei
and they bad to bear 'the brunt ot the
tight for their teams. It was killing
work and they finally lagged to such
an extent that It was thought they Had

out at 4 o'clock, Bhowed uo change.
lledell and Walthour are in good

County Councils Must Provide Funds
to Pay for RelAfious Instruction In Stcokr Schools.
London, Dec. 14.���Parliamentary circles here show much Interest in the
prospect of James Bryce's appointment tu the ambassadorship at Washington, and some of the Irish members
asked the chief secretary for Ireland
if they might congratulate hlm. Mr.
Bryce did not deny tbe report but
merely replied, "You must not believe
everything you hear."
Should Mr. Bryce go to Washington

London, Dec. 14.���The house of lords
have reversed the decision of the ap-*
peal court ln the West Riding case in
regard to the payment for religious Instruction and holds that the county
councils are bound to pay for the
whole curriculum, religious aa well aa
secular. The law lords thus uphold
the original Interpretation of tbe act
of 1902, under which the "Passive re-
sisters," headed by Dr. Clifford, were
fined and imprisoned.
The Education "Act of 1U02 was intended to compel local authorities to
pay for religious Instruction ln tne
voluntary schools and led to the "Passive registers" movement, under whicn
numbers of nonconformists refused to
pay the rate levied to cover this expenditure. The education bill waa introduced to remedy this condition, in
tbe meantime the county council of
the West Riding of West Yorkshire
refused to pay teachers for tbe time
devoted by them to religious Instruction.
The board of education then sought
the assistance of the courts, the court

Berlin, Doc. 1'.��� Kmporor William
lunched with Chancellor von Buelow
at the chancellor's palace today and
presumably they discussed the poi. 'cal
situation brought about by the dissolution of parliament.
The emperor and chancellor have
been lu complete accord throughout
on the treatment of the colonial question and desire to relieve the government from depending on the clerical
parly. This, lt appears will be as much
an Issue at the coming elections as tho
question of tho retention or the German colonies. The imperial govern-
ami the Vatican have got along lainy
well since the beginning of the lale
Prince von Schenloh's chancellorship,
but tbe radical attitude of the counter
or clerical party of recent years has
been one of annoyance to ministers
and court circles. It Is not Intended
to completely break with members ot
the counter party, but only to show tne
senate that they are Indispensable.

That Mr. Peter Verlgin, the apostle
oi the Doukhobors, has gone to Russia
on more than a personal mission is
apparent from the serious comment
that is going the rounds of the Eastern press at the present time. In the
several interviews accorded the press
oil the eve of .lis departure for his
native land, Mr. Verlgin loudly sang
the praises of Canada and expressed
every confidence that the communities
of Doukhobors already settled in the
Russian colonies on the prairies would
become loyal citizens and valuable ac-
quialtlons (o the farming communities
ol the Northwest, Whether there is
any truth In the report that he is mak
ing arrangements for their repatriation is not Tor tht nonce the most serious questiou arising from his present
mission to Russia. Notwithstanding
the large sums that have beeu spent 111
seeking to domesticate the Doukhobors
there Is a growing feeling In Canada
that if they would voluntarily return
to the land of their nationality there
would be experienced a sense ot relief. It is scarcely likely that this ls
seriously contemplated, because sucll
a proposal is in contradiction oi the
further report that Vengiu proposes
to biiug 10,000 more Russians lo Canada to pei form the menial tasks ot
clearing and grading ou   the   railway
hues that are in process ot construction in the northern regions ot the
piaii.es ami tile west.
it ls well known that this worn is
about the only employment in which
the Doukhobors have exhibited any degree ot Interest, and it is no tar st retell
ol the imagination to supiwse ihat railway constructors have Induced \ en-
gin to go forth to Russia and bring
over more of that class of laborers
who have all their lives been accustomed to drudgery and want aud who
possess au unlimited capacity ior hard
We are informed that Premier Stolypln advised Verlgin to go 10 the districts of Russia where famine had prevailed and where want had most severely pinched the peasants to recruit
the hordes with which he proposes 10

De a shortsighted policy fur Canada
to tolerate the importation ol a horde
of Russian peasants, the best ot whom
have been nothing better to us than a
hill of expense and a cunstaut source
01 irritation, annoyance and anxiety,
Aud since it is the Drand Trunk Pacific, that pet scheme of Sir Wilfrid,
that Is at the bottom of the proposed
to import them for this work, It will
not he amiss for the whole country to
keep a vigilant watch on every pro-
iwsal that is made to pour into tho
country a stream of undesirables who,
alter their slavish task is over, wm
have to bo cared for by the country
itseir. Canada can assimilate a moderate number, even of undesirables,
but to have a whole Russian pauper
commune dumped on our shores at one
time is a prospective evil too great to
he contemplated with equanimity. Del
us hope that the alarm Is more lau
cied than real.
The Mall and Empire has an intelligently written editorial on growing
Canada inspired by the recently proposed C. P. R. developments on Vancouver island. It sets forth in sane
and measured terms the latent weaih
ot the various parts of British Coum-
bia and concludes as follows:
"The remarkable fact with reference
to the Dominion is that we never seem
to reach the end of it, either as regards area or promise of wealth. New
centres are opening up in ali directions, and in out of the way places,
and every such enterprise is based upon a sure foundation. Some ot our
itritish contemporaries are discovering
that there is something in Canada alter all. We in the Dominion cannot
blame ihem for being somewhat late
In finding this out, for It took those of
us who are on the spot some little
time to appreotate ihe situation."
The proposal to delay definite nction
in the matter or church union among
Presbyterians, Methodists and Congre-
gationansts until the Anglicans and
Baptists are ready to amalgamate, wm
not hasten but delay final action. .Noi
lhat there are greater fundamental
doctrinal differences between these
latter and the others than between the
two former. Hut the bigger the bony
to be fused ihe more heat Is required
to reach the fusion point, and the heat
of passion for church union is about
the only thing lacking In the movement. "That they all may he one" is
procrastinated by the question, "Union
According to newspaper reports the
Sociaists intend to place candidates in

sooner the Socialists learn that they
are a valuable element in society, because they serve a good purpose hy
continually emphasizing the Inequalities and Injustices of economic conditions and thus conduct a valuable campaign of education, the better for an

this Is about the extent of their Impor

that a deputy minister be appointed,

8. Walker of Cariboo City, and J. hi.
Annable then addressed the board on
behalf ol the residents on the Arrow
lakes, who complain of Inadequate
HDamer service.
On motion of .T. 1_. Annable it was
resolved that a deputation ot the board
interview the C. P. R. division off_o.aH

A resolution or the Crnnbmok board
Of trade wub forwarded by C. IhiiiKer-
It��t'd-l'ollen, secretary of lbe Kootciiny
Centrnl railway, asking co-operation tn
urging the provincial government to
assist in hastening the construction
Ol ihe railway.
lt. was explained lhal the provincial
government had offered a bonus, nut
it had lapsed, ^
w. H. Jones thought there was lime
to be gained by helping la company
which was unable lo go ahead.
S. S. Taylor replied that the resolution was partly for ihe purpose of tnst-
���ing ihe govt'i-nmont's assuiance mat
such a road would be built  by the C.
i'. it. oompany.
After further discussion tbe resolution was endorsed,
The petition for a road to Thrums
and beyond, published in yesterdays
issue of The Canadian, was then read,
along wiih others endorsing it.
Jamea Johnstone strongly advocated
Its endorsement by the board.
The president thought lhal mere en-
dorBement of the petition was inadequate lo the occasion. He thougni
that the many interests to be served,
Including   the   Queen   Vietoria   mines.
made it a matter of the first importance. He thoughl. a sp'-cial Oommlttee
should be appointed to draft a resolution.
.lames Johnstone then raised a bigger question. He thought before many
yenrs there must be a bridge over the
Koolenay at Nelson, which, he claimed, WOUd serve all purposes for ever.
S. S. Taylor thought that If a bridge
were asked for little would be given
for rOSds, He suggested cable f>rrles
instead and pointed to lbe example
of Kdmonten.
A. H. Kelly opposed the suggestion,
lie thought the bridge would not Ho
cosily and would be paid Tor a thou-
snndiold by the development of tbe agricultural anl mineral wealth of the
Kontenay valley, which he Claimed is
superior to that of any district in the
The petition was then endorsed and
.1. M. Lay, J. E. Annable and D. It. McDermid were appointed a committee to
draft a resolution.
A letter from the Kingston board 01
trade asked for the oo-operfillon of alt
boards of (rale In urging the Dominion
government to improve the canals. As
the members of the board knew nothing about the matter they declined to
act and filed tbe commiutUaliou.
a long communication from the exploiters of Seattle's proposed Alaska-
Yukon exposition asked for approval ot
llrltlsh Columbia's participation and
Financial support. The mutter was
then referred to n committee���*1, u.
Nelson and H. U. Uoodevu*��� to report
ttt the next meeting.
The Manufacturers'   association   ot
Toronto asked the board's support ln
urging upon the Dominion government
the importance ol establishing a national system of technical education,
which, ii Is claimed. Is supported by ull
manufacturers! by   educationists   ami
h> Organised labor. The resolution
was endorsed.
A ettor from the Ymir Citizens' association asked aid In securing government aid fur a rond from Nelson
to Ymir. The letter wus left over lor
consideration at ihe next meeting,
A letter from Avomlale, -Colo., asked
tor iniui in.iiinn about farm lands. It
was referred lo the secretary of the

A petition asking the provincial government to take Step! to remove the
dearth of labor was read, but no nelion was taken.
S. S. Taylor urged thut before uny

Importance to Nelson. On his motion
the board went on record as being opposed to such u scheme.

.), B. Tlerney returned last nignt
liuiu a six-weeks trip to Chicago in
the interests of a Boundary nmung enterprise. Mr. Tlerney says that his
tup was entirely successful-
The Nelson-Bruce company arnveu
from llossund at noon loday and the
members are at the Queen's. Since
Its last appearance here the company
has beeu strengthened by the return oi
William Yule, considered by many
good judges to be the best comedian
who has ever appeared in Nelson.
The Koscian Opera company concluded its'engagement last evening when
Balfe's '"Bohemian Uirl" was presented to a fair-sized audience. The production was about up to the average
in artistic merit. Mr. Wallets, Miss
Nola and Miss Godfrey carried oft the
honors. The chorus work was very
good, and altogether the performance
was an enjoyable one. The engagement
of the Kosctans cannot be said to have
been a sucessful one from a tinanciat
point of view, but it must be admit tea
that the company is one of the best
musical organizations, if not the gest,
that has ever visited Nelson. Lack or
patronage may be attributed to several
causes, the principal one being that
the holiday season is ut hand and the
people who are accustomed to spending money on the theatre are now saving up for the demand that will oe
made upon their purses lor Christmas
presents. Tonight at the opera house
tht Nelson-Bruce company will present
the Western melodrama, "Arizona,'
with which they scored such a success
on their last visit. Tomorrow's tix-
tures are: Matinee, "Soldier of J*or-
tune";   evening,   "Prisoner   of   Zenda.'
