The principal hope of filiating her In

Boston Congress Assembled Today
History of Organization Thirty Years
Old Now Covering Every Nation on Earth,
BOfltOD, Mass., Oct. 17. Since lhe
rirKt appearance of women In the field
til' politics and social reform there hat*
never been mich a demonstration an
that, which began in Boston today. Tho
occasion is lhe seventh triennial convention     of     lhe     World's     Woman's
Christian Temperance Union, which
was ushered in today with an all-day
service of prayer in the vestry of Park
Street church. This evening at Tremont Temple a banquet is to he tendered the distinguished guests from
afar, witli Mon. John I). l_ong, former
secretary of the navy, na toastmatiler.
Tremont Temple will he the scene ot
three business sessions dally during the
remainder of the week. In the absence
Of Lady Henry Somerset, the president
of (he world's organization, lho sessions will be presided over by Mrs. L.
M. N. Stevens of Maine, president of
the National W. C. T. U.
The magnitude or the organizations
which are participating in this convention is hard Io realize, and compared
with their modest beginnings their
growth is little short of miraculous.
Thirty years ago or more such a thing
as a Women's Temperance Union was
unknown. Throughout the United
States and and iu England there wero
a number of temperance societies, but
they were distant from each other and
worked independently, HOveri iu those
days there were some who dreamed of
having all the societies combined under one head, to found one grand non-
sectarian union which would take in
every prohibition society in the world.
Miss Francis B. Willard was the leading spirit in this new movement, and
her associates numbered women scarcely less qualified than herself for
their chosen work. Among them wero
Mrs. Louise Rounds of Chicago, Mrs.
Mary Clement Leavitt of Boston, Mrs.
Mary A. H. Woodbridge of Cleveland,
Mrs. J. Ellen Foster of Washington,
Mrs. Lillian M. N. Stevens of Maine,
and Miss Julia Coleman of New York.
In 1874 their dream came true and
the cherished hope of a Women's Temperance Union was a reality. Its success wns assured from the start. Local
unions sprang up all over America, and
these were federated into state and
provincial organizations. After Canada
and the United States England was
the next to fall into line, but though
she adopted the American system, she
chose to be known by the name of the
"Hritish Women's Temperance Association," there being some objections to
the word "union." Itut the English
proved themselves none the less ardent
workers, ami today there are branches
in every county In England. Scotland
and  Wales .
The comprehensive programme arranged for the present convention
tells a story of good work done and doing. The fact that sixty teuntrleS of
tbe world are represented among the
delegation shows hnw new fields have
lieen penetrated fnnn year to year.
Not only are the United States and
Oanada ably represented, but some of
the mosl remote countries of the world
have sent delegations. Mm. Kaji
Vajima of Tokyo, the president of the
Japanese union, represents that country. Far away Africa has sent her
president, Mrs. Mary F. Fermie of
Natal. From Germany has come Baroness Von Hansen, a recognised force
in educational circles as well as in the
social life of her home eity, Dresden.
Austria is represented hv Fraullen
Julie Knssowltz. Mrs. Alii Trigg llel-
onlUS of Helsingfors Is the delegate of
the Finland W. C. T. U., and from the
antipodes has come Miss Ida Henry,
representing New South Wales. Other
delegates from far-off lands are Mrs.
Harrison Lee of Melbourne, Miss Uogo-
berg of Sweden, Miss Helen Uuuhill
of India, nud the Misses Cnlleoperl of
(i recce.
The United Kingdom has a most distinguished delegation headed by the
Earl of Carlisle and his daughter,
Lady Dorothy Howard, representing
the Countess of Carlisle, who Is president of the Hritish W. C. T. U. In addition there are delegates representing lho local unions of Glasgow,
Leeds, Birmingham, Nottingham-. Lpn-
don. Paisley, and numerous other leading cities of England, Scotland and

James McDonald of Eholt aud A.
Chisholm of Franklin (lamp are of the
opinion that the two tAnsites already

steamer Princess Victoria, while on
her run from Vancouver, struck on
Fiddler's reef, off Oak bay, on the
western side of Vancouver island. The
night was Inky black and squally. As
viewed from Oak hay the Princess

United States Congress Will Be Asked
to Adopt Turbine Patterns in Constructing New Warships.
Washington, D. C, Oct. 17.���The
United States secretary of the navy
has received and turned over to the
naval construct Ion board a lot of the
data pertaining to lhe new Hritish
armored cruisers of the Indomitable
class, directing special attention to the
turbine machinery and ujion the report of the construction board he will
probably base bis own recommendations to congress at Ihe approaching
session relative to new naval construction.
The construction board rejected the
turbine machinery when last offored,
but recent reports touching the performance of the Dreadnaught has Inclined then) to reverse their judgnie*!
and It Is probable thai turbine engines
will he proposed in the plod's for the
20(000*ton battleship to be submitted
to congress at the ucxt session.
Details of the construction of the
Dreadnaught are coming lo light and
they show lhat the objection to the
turbine on the points of ntanoeuvering
capacity has been overcome. This is
accomplished by equipping the big
ship with four separate propeller
shafts and with two great rudders,
ono behind the other, giving great
power of steering.
Intimations hnve been reeolved
from some American shipbuilder to the
effect Ihnt with tho experience gained
In Ihe recent construction of merchant
ships aud yachts, equipped with turbines. Ihe cohI of these engines can
he considerably reduced.
What B.C. Premier ASK-
ed For Province
Expresses Surprise that Government
Could Constitute Two New Provinces But Helpless Now.
The Culonist publishes the following
special rrom oiluwa under date of tho
14th in-taut, anil reappears In the
Daily News thin morning aa part of a
"Bpeclal" telegram from Ottawa to
that paiier:
"The inter-provincial conference concluded iis labors this afternoon, but
concluded theni with one province unrepresented. That province was British Columbia. *
"Hon. Klchard McBride this week
has put up the fight of his life, and although he has not succeeded he will
go back lo his native province a greater man than ever.
"He has compelled recognition of
lust claims uf Itritish Columbia to additional compensation. An offer of
$75.01111, subsequently raised to $100,-
POO, to meet this contention was
promptly rejected hy him as wholly
"Coaxing, cajolery and bluff were
tried upon Mclirlde, and when he
found nothing better was coming to
him he, this morning, formally bade
lhe conference adieu.
"An Idea of Premier Mcllrlde's position can be had from the text of his
proposal, after arbitration had been
refused him, which is as follows "That
lu case the proposed readjustment of
subsidies, as set out in the resolutions
of the Quebec conference of provincial
premiers, be accepted by the Dominion
government, there shall be paid to the
province of British Columbia each and
every year, ln addition to the payments and subsidies otherwise provided, an amount understood to be what
the Dominion of Canada Ib willing to
pay and the province of British Columbia to receive as a nominal recognition of the disabilities borne by the
province owing to the. peculiar physical
conditions and for the other causes set
forth in the case of British Columbia
for better terms, and the accompanying memorandum that the said annual
amount shall be fixed ln the following
manner. One dollar per head until
Ihe amount reaches 1300,000, to remain
fixed until the population is 400.000;
75 cents per head of the population
thereafter until the amount readies
ft"i|.li(iO per annum, to remain fixed
uiiti' lhe population 1s 800.000; 60
cents per head of the population thereafter until the amount reaches $500.-
000. 11 ic-nalii fixed until the population Is ' r J0.000; 3H 1-3 cents per head
thereafter until the amount reaches
$1100.000, to remain fixed until the impulsion Is 2,500,000; 25 cents per head
of llie  population  thereafter.*
"It wns Sir Wilfrid I-aurlcr who
gave the blow lo British Columbia's
legitimate aspirations. The Liberal
majority In Ihe conference, who had
been taking their Instructions from
the federal premier all week, had
promised not to go beyond the $100,-
000 offer.
"Premier McBrlde's withdrawal was
a staggerer, and for some time Ihe
other delegales knew not where they
were at.
"British Columbia'- premier followed np his withdrawal by sending a formal letter lo the conference, putting
the rensons Tor his action on record
and protesting against, the decision of
Ihe conference.
"Seen by the Colonist corresuondent
tonight. Premier McBride said: 'You
know what hns happened. I withdrew from the conference beenuse I
believed British Columbia was being
unfavorably treated. I regret that I
had to do this, hut I could not do anything else.
" 'That British Columbia was enlllleil
to sneelal consideration was recognized, bul the sum offered Is slninly
nlwiinl. I retard It ns a strange thine
that eighteen months ago the Dominion government could undertake to
create Iwo new provinces without consulting the other members of 1he confederation: nnd now the Dominion
lavs down the doctrine lhat no Rpeclal
elnlms enn he considered without the
C'inRent  of all provinces.
"I return to Brlllsh Columbia In a
few davs and slinll make a full reporl
to my executive.'"

is out for Uie title, and has been training faithfully at McOray's academy
since he returned from West Baden.
On account of his youth, his victories
over Vlgnaux ind Slosson, and his
great exhibitions, Hoppe has been
made a favorite In the betting, though
the veteran, Sehaefer, has many ardent admirers, who are disposed to
take all the Hoppe money offered.

Berlin. Oct. 17.���A unique and daring robbery waa committed at Cop-nick, a small town seven mile* eaat of
Berlin, yesterday. The robber, In the
uniform of a captain of the guards,
met a detachment of 12 men on a
street in Berlin who were returning
from target practice. He produced a
forged cabinet order authorizing him
to take command
The men recognized hla authority
and he then ordered them to march to
Copenick. Upon arrival there they
proceeded to the town hall, arrested
the burgomaster and took possession
of the cash, $1000.
The robber then despatched several
of hla men to conduct the prisoners to
headquarters. He ordered the remainder to hold the town hall for an
hour. He then rode off alone In the
direction of Berlin with the money.
The burgomaster and the treasurer
were greatly mystified at tho meaning
or their arrest. Upon their arrival, in
custody at headquarters in Berlin they
learned that the ostensible captain
was a fraud and were Immediately discharged. The bogus captain has not
been heard from. The police and military authorities are without any clue
whatever as to his identity.
Jealousy Leads to Unintentional Stabbing of a Friend.
Berlin, Oct. 17.���A sensational crime,
reminding one of some gory "dime
novel," has just been committed at
Munich. A girl named Therese Nled-
ermalr had amorous relations with a
man named George Duni, but the lady
proved fickle and arranged to meet
surreptitiously another candidate for
her favors. The tryst, however, waa
observed by one Max Gundlflnger, a
bosom friend of Dunz's. who was not
slow in informing the jilted lover of
what he had seen.
'ibe latter, furious with jealousy,
rushed off with the Informant to the
girl's house the same night and demanded admission, threatening to
broak open tho door. The panic-stricken girl opened the door, but had the
presence of mind to extinguish the
light first, then slipped behind the
door and darted through, while the
maddened lover, who wag armed with
a long knife, rushed Into the darkened
room. Striking blindly about him, he
plunged the weapon into the body of
hla friend, Gundlflnger, who fell mortally wounded. Dunz then fled, but
was pursued and captures!.

Tho telegraph is a great Institution.
Not only is it possible to transmit a
literal message by means of the wires
but even the spirit of the sender may
be appreciably sent far across a continent. So it transpires that the Liberal party press has been regaling its
readers in British Columbia with
varied versions of What is taking place
in the conference ol premiers at Ottawa now in session.
Singularly enough we read little of
what is being done except that whicli
is being done by one man, Richard
McBride, premier of this provlnee. Mr.
McBride Is such an important figure
in the conference that he lias had tbe
limelight ever since the conference
opened. Special telegrams have informed us that he is obstinate, unreasonable, sulking, recalcitrant and if
there he any other words in the English language by which lie can be described as anything but a gentleman
wc may yet look for fresh character
The business of sending uujl also of
publishing special political telegrams
is curiously and wondrously managed.
We have beard or read somewhere of
the immense amount of time, energy,
care and even money that lias to be
spent before a newspaper can secure
a select staff of special correspondents
and we can readily understand this to
be the case. There is however, one
compensating advantage. After hav*
having spent a mint of money iu building up a special service a newspaper
can usually rely un getting Just lho
kind of service its business requires.
Whether it is to blast the reputation
Of a political opponent, slander the
Character or a private citizen, or boom
the interests of this or that corpora*
Uon, special correspondents when so
instructed will usually do as they are
told. That is to say after due care
has been made in their selection and
the proper amount of remuneration
paid them for their fragrant work.
We are inform* <l by a local paper
that Mr. McBride played a "baby
trick" at Ottawa. Thai In* "would
rather have a grievance than a subsidy." That he had to he "led back
to the conference by Premier Hublfn";
that he insisted on submitting his case
to arbitration, whereas then' was notb'
ing to arbitrate. These choice ('-need*
abiscuft wafers taken altogether with
the delicious aroma of Inuendo that
runs through the whole series of despatches leave but one conclusion, and
that is that the conduct of Premier
McBride Is attracting attention at Ottawa. How little veracity there is In
these despatches need not be Inquired
Taken in Iheir entirety they tell us
really nothing except that Mr. Me-
Bride wishes tor a graduated annuity
the terms and conditions of which are
set forth In a telegram we reproduce
elsewhere. K will be observed that fn
fhe despatch published in this paper
Mr. McBride Is "quoted," and U may
be presumed that he authorized the ex
act wmding of the telegram. This is
the only sort of news that is reliable
fur upon it the sender must stand or
fall. The proceedings of the conference are exclusive and secret and
what is sent over the wires is otherwise mere surmise.
In order to inquire as to the probable fake nature of these telegrams it
is only necessary to recall the genial
personality of Hritish Columbia's premier. He was never known to be a
political "sulk"; he has no reputation
for getting in a huff and running away
from pulitical caucuses. In his reasonably lengthy political experience ho
has never heen guilty of baby tricks,
or al least if he has, then the conduct
of his political opponents and several
gentlemen in the opposition must certainly be characterized as monkey
The facts of the case are probably
that Mr. McBride, thoroughly convinced of the righteousness of his cause,
Insisted on due recognition being given
to the special claims of Hritish Columbia, it might not be easy to make
the other premiers see this with tho
same force that lt appeals to Mr. Mc-
Hride; indeed it is probable that they
would not try to see it for a large majority of them are grits and their sight
where subsidies have to be distributed
Is proverbially guggle-eyed.
But supposing that all the small potato, political, special despatches are
true. Supposing that McBride did
leave the conference and admitting
tbat he refused tu return. Hritish Columbia will be proud of a premier
whose motto is admitted by his political opponents to be "no surrender."
If such is the case it is the second
time in the history of the province
that we have had in office at the head
of our government a man who would
not truckle and makeshift and compromise on any sort of sop that the
Liberal gourmands al Ottawa have
had the bad grace to throw from their
richly-laden tables.
All honor to the man, who when his
political slanderers have said their
worst will return to the province hav-
ing kept sacred his trust. It were far
better lo have an honest grievance
than to accept a subsidy ur a compromise which even the pulitical foes of
McBride would have hastened to stigmatize as a betrayal.
Lei the specialists go on delivering
the goods. When Richard McBride returns to his native province we shall
hear him, and hearing we shall believe
and we have ;io doubt the country will
honor htm as it has never had occasion to honor any of his predecessors
in office.
There is generally expressed regret
al the proposals of the city council to
place the old courthouse on the site
which has been selected for it as a
new library building. Apart altogether
from the Inadvi&abtlity of placing a
public building on leased property���
the point raised In objection by Dr.
Hose���the locality is one entirely unfilled for the purpose of a library or
public building such as it is proposed
to make of tbe newly acquired structure.
Looking but a few years into the future, there are many people in Nelson
who expect to see the waterfront built
Up solidly with wholesale warehouses
and other waterfront and shipping facilities und the adjoining streets studded with manufacturing industries.
Such a part of the city, If these hopes
materialize, will be the least suitable
that can be imagined for a hall of
public assemblage and a public library,
it  may be pleaded  that the expense
of purchasing, a suitable property for
the proposed structure is at present
beyond the ability of the city but such
surely cannot be the case. We believe
that if tho matter were taken hold of
in the proper spirit the citizens would
authorize the borrowing of the necessary amounl of money to procure a
couple of lots, move the old courthouse, thoroughly refit aud furnish it
and have it as a center of interest for
tourists, travellers and transient visitors as well as to serve the purpose of
a hall of assembly.
At any rate we are sure that the
present proposal if carried Into effect
will be regretted within a very few
years aud tbe same or perhaps greater
expense Will have to be Incurred at an
early dale as would finish Ihe case
When  calling attention    to    lhe  tin-
suilability of the site it is unnecessary
to mention somo other things that will
suggest themselves even to the superficial  reader.
Tomorrow will be the day of National Thanksgiving. C.fve thanks for the
exposures of political rascality iu high
places. It is better that they should
be exposed than that they should ex-
1st   and   not   be exposed.

Railway Companies for Fair Freight
Rates for Nelson.
The wholesalers of Nelson have re-
wived to carry their case to the railway commission if necessary for fair
rates for Kootenay.
The meeting was held promptly at
8:30. Those present were; F. Starkey,
president; I. O. Nelson, G. Nunn, II.
Li. Ooodeve, J. A. McDonald, J. A.
Montgomery, J, A. Irving, W. G. Gillett,
S. M. Ilrydges, K. K. Ueeston, J. K.
Hunter, K. Ferguson, E. F. Gigot, 1*
b&mont, R. M. Hood, W. G. Thompson
aiid others, ahout 25 iu all.
The minutes of the last regular
meeting and a special meeting were
read aud adopted.
The president remarked ihat the officers had held office for five months
beyond the time of the annual meeting. The elections were, however,
postponed   to  another  meeting.
The chief business of the evening
was then attacked. A letter from the
hoard of trade containing the resolution adopted last Thursday night on
the subject of freight rate discrlmfna-
fliin against Nelson was then read.
The chairman briefly recounted the
circumstances  already   published.
G. Nunn laid before the meeting the
figures oblalned by ��� Mr. Macdonald,
showing the discrimination In favor of
Vancouver against Nelson in shipments
hi Crow's Nest points.
After some discussion on the differ
ences In rates on different articles, H.
G. Goodeve said: "I think our main
contention Is that we should not pay
a higher rate from Montreal or Toronto to Nelson than is paid from iho
game   points   to  Vancouver."
This position was endorsed hy F.
Siarkey and others. Mr. Slarkey remarked that Bpokane merchants were
gradually winning a similar fight
against Seattle.
li. F. Gigot advised that an expert
be employed lo carefully prepare Nelson's whole case iu the matter, lo be
suhmflted first to the railway companies, and Uien. If necessary, to the
railway  commissioners.
J. A. McDonald remarked that express companies should he included, as
they were giving the same rate from
Vancouver to Fernie as from Nelson
to Fernie.
It was resolved on motion of H. G.
Goodeve and J. A. McDonald that a
committee be appointed to engage
some one to prepare a case with full
data, to be laid before railway and express companies, or before the railway
commission If necessary..
The president appointed G. Nunn, H.
G. Goodeve and J. A. McDonald to act
with  the president and secretary.
Mr. Nuun advised thai a finance
committee be appointed, as such a
campaign wutild involve funds.
The treasurer reported -16 on hand
and dues for the current year still to
he collected.
The president appointed J. A. Irving,
P. Lamont and .1. G. Nelson.
With instructions to all committees
to get to work early the meeting adjourned.
