"If we had the papers of Vancouver,

If the managers and editors of these 'palters were good Cnristlan men, we

Seattle, July 13.���Esther Mitchell,
who shol and killed her brother, (leorge
Mitchell, In lhe union station yesterday,
made a public statement last night in
which she descrlbeil the murder as deliberately planned. George Mitchell had
recently been acquitted of the murder
of Franc Edmund Creflield, a "Holy
Roller" prophet, on the plea of insanity. He claimed ihat Creflield had
wronged his sister Esther, who was a
"Holy Roller." Esther later planned
her brother's death. In her statement
she said:
"Mrs. Crenteld and I talked over the
matter of killing George. The one lhat
had the best chance was to do it. Mrs.
CreilleUi bought the gun. This afternoon I though! I would have u better
chance to do It, and Mrs. Creflield gave
me the gun. We agreed that it must
be done as soon as possible. My broth'
er Kred was up to my room today, and
said that Perry and George were going
lo Portland this evening. I went to tin
depot and saw Perry purchase his ticket. At lust 1 tyw (leorge, and I shook
hands with him. He and Perry were

This was the chance I wanted, nnd I
shot him. My brother Fred grabbed
me, and I sat down on his lap and put
my arms abount his nock. I sat there,
and the officer came. I intended to
follow him to Portland if l did not get

Large Compressor Plant to be Installed
���Railway  Disputes.
(Special  to  The   Daily  Canadian.)
Grand Porks, July 18.���Contractor J.
W. Jones, of Ihis place, has been given
the contract for hauling the mining machinery  from   Danville,  Wash.,  to    the
Minnehaha mine. The machinery consists of a compressor plant complele,
aa well as other modern appliances for
mining. In referring lo lhe contradictory sialemelils of Mr. ,1. I,. Ilarpur,
published In a recent Issue of the
Spokesman-Review, referring to tho
curves on the Belcher railway spur,
Mr. Jones last evening said:
"Mr. J. L. Harper Is perfectly aware
thai my statements regarding thai spur
were correct. To my personal knowledge the Belcher spur Is made on a 4
per cent, grade, and has UN degree
curves, which are practically unworkable. The Great Northern copper spur
at the Granby smelter, which I graded
some weeks ago, had a Ill-degree curve,
and it was all that an engine could do
to travel round the curve. Mr. Harper ts quite a bluffer, but he would not
substantiate his st at omenta in the
Spokesman-Review to my face. Ho is
an old newspaper man, but grossly ignorant In all matters pertaining to'
railroading nnd mining , although ho
holds the position of general manager
of the Belcher Mining Company."
Your -correspondent has made some
Inquiries regarding this matter, and so
far all opinions obtained relative to tho
Belcher railway spur are directly corroborative of .1. W. Jones' contentions.
Jolt Davis, the pioneer merchant of
Grand Forks, accompanied by Mrs. Davis and family, arrived here today from

F\ T. Andrews, right-of-way agent for
the Kettle Valley Line railway up the
North Pork, ln referring to the tlilli-
culty between hla eomnany and Mr. R.
A. Brown relating to the right of way
through Brown's land ai Volcanic mountain laii evening in an Interview, said:
"1 ottered R. A. Brown $80 an acre for
right of way through his land, and not
$1.1, as was stated. We are paying
from $15 to $40 an acre for land needed
for right of way. Where we pay $40
the land is cleared and near (irand
Forks, and is good agricultural land. I
made Brown a good otter, but he wants
the company to pay $60 an acre and
also build a tunnel, which our engineer
tells me will cost. $80,000. However, the
matter will be left to arbitration, and
we will continue const ruction work under an qrder of the court."
The management of the Pathfinder
mine have today laid off some twelve
men, bul will continue two shifts for a
short time, when the force will again
be increased to 30 men, as heretofore.
F. Starkey Tells of Prosperity and Con*

Strike In Strathmore,
Fred Starkey returned last night
from a business trip to the towns of
the Boundary district. He reports
great activity in mining and railroad
construction and persistant rumors of
new mines to he opened and new roads
to he built, and that in all the towns
there is an atmosphere of hope and expectancy. Of the various projects talked or, Mr. Starkey says:
"There is ialk of new railways everywhere. The only one actually being
constructed at the present time is tho
Kettle River Valley line. The section
between Grand Forl���� and Republic,
known as the HokAlr line, Is being extended from Grand Forks up the valley
of ihe north fork pt the Kettle river

throughout the whole district as to

"The general impression, however, is
that construction will not be much

and that the Boundary's prosperity is
certain to last nnd to Increase."

To Have Membership in
Legion of Honor
France Goes From One Extreme to
Another���Politicians Seize
the Judiciary.
Paris, July 13.���This was the closing
day of parliament, and It  was largely
devoted to the rehabilitation of Alfred
DreyfttB,  so  that the  national  holiday
tomorrow   may   witness  his  return   to
the army and the official effacement of
the slain placed upon his good name.
The Chamber   of    Deputies met    this
morning for the purpose of hastening
the parliamentary procedure, and War
Minister EUenne immediately presented two government bills,   one raising
Captain Dreyfus to the rank of major
of artillery and anotv^ nromoting Colonel Picquart to th
< r;il.    M. Etienne a
tion, adding that
ment's Intention  t<   ����� C.
name on the list o. .
cross of the Legion of Honor
nouncement brought out a storm of applause.
The bills were referred to the army
committee, which ut once went into
session, approved them and drafted
strong, favorable reports which will be
debated later. It Is expected that both
bills will become law before the close
of tlie day. The radical supporters of
Dreyfus are seeming to force the government to prosecute the many generals, colonels and high functionaries
responsible for his condemnation. Tho
amnesty law protcta them, but a movement Is on foot to amend this law for
the purpose of reaching Generals Mer-
cier and tiomez, Colonel Paty-du-Clam
and others who were instrumental In
the prosecution of Dreyfus.
The government newspapers declare
that the affair is closed, but others notably the Figaro aud Echo de Paris, report that Herce reprisals are ahout to
begin. The Figaro, however, appeals to
those who are prominent In obtaining
n revision of Dreyfus' trial not to attempt to obtain vengeance. The Eclair
asserts that the acquittal of Dreyfus
moans that politicians have seized the
judiciary. The prevailing tone of the
press testifies to the scrupulous Integrity of the court, and hails its decision
as a triumph of jusllce.
the fact that not long before his death
he sold $400,000 of his life insurance���
that Is, took his cash surrender value,
and sold his fine estate at Long Branch
at a great sacrifice. This he did to
fulfill his pledge to the trustees of the
New York Life Insurance Company
that he would personally make good
any money (if the company which ho
had paid to Andrew Hamilton and
which the latter was unable to account
for. Following this promise, he paid
over to the company $:...~,,<iim. About
$(jo,uoo of this represented the money
received for his $100,000 of insurance.
The appraisement shows that McCall
left no real estate. Tho entire personal
property amounts lo $74,000, from
which debts, administration expenses
and other disbursements amounting to
M8.165 are deducted, leaving $40,835.

Call, former president of the New York
Life Insurance Company, who died on
February ISth, amounts to only 140,811!
according to the appraisement (lied In

That bis estate is bo small Is due to

Unusual Number of Private Bills.
A Winnipeg police officer, in discussing the criminal records of Canada in
Winnipeg, last Tuesday made the following sensatioua! statements:
"ln all the criminal records of Canada there is not one case where an
Italian has been convicted of murder,
sentenced and paid the death penalty,"
he said, in speaking about the likelihood ot a conviction being registered
uguinst Michael lvano, under arrest ln
Port Arthur.
"There have beon Italians convicted
of manslaughter and attempted murder,
but there is not a single instance of
an Italian being given capital punishment. Even In the United States,
where the number of Italian murder
cases is exceedingly large, more than
six times the number of Canadian
cases, there are not more than isolated
instances of where an Italian was convicted.
"The reaBon of this state of affairs is
found In the fact that the Italians as a
whole work together for their common
good. If one Itallun sees where he can
benefit another Italian he does It, even
though some other person may get the
worst of It. So it Is when an Itallun
Is held ou a murder charge; they band
together and supply the money necessary for his defence. Of the many Italians who have been under indictment
for murder, there bus never beon one
who lias been compelled to adopt tbe
without-money plea to obtain counsel."
The police officer above quoted
should make an honest attempt to get
next to tbe facts before expressing such
wholesale condemnation ot a very numerous class in western communities.
Tbat no Italian has ever been convicted
ot murder and suffered the execution
of the sentence Imposed Is as far from
truth as well could bo.
In the spring of 1893 an Italian at
Nanaimo, whose wlfo had deserted htm
for a young paramour, followed the pair
to their temporary shack at Northlteld,
and In the shadows of night stabbed his.
fellow-countryman, inflicting fatal
wounds. The trial and conviction of
tho murderer followed swiftly, and the
criminal was executed at the Nanaimo
gaol within two months of the murder.
In the spring of 1899 an Italian at
New Westminster shot and killed a
woman of easy virtue in a brothel quar-
rel. He was summarily Indicted on a
charge of murder, the case was proved,
and bis sentence and execution followed each other within a month.
Ottawa, July 13.���Tbe house of commons prorogued today, with tbe usual
large and brilliant attendance of fashionables and notables who Invariably
lend the splendor of their presence on
such occasionB.
The speech from the throne waB read
as follows:
Honorable Gentlemen of the Senate
and Gentlemen of the House of Commons: ln relieving you trom further
attendance in parliament, 1 desire to
thank you for the care and assiduity
exhibited ln the discharge ot your laborious and exacting duties. Tour Invitation to his majesty the king to visit
this part of his dominions was duly
forwarded to Buckingham palace. That
it would be a source of great rejoicing
in Canada if his majesty would favorably entertain tbe invitation Is confirmed by many similar addresses adopted
in tbe several provinces, cities and
towns, all expressing the hope that hii
majesty may honor us with another
It is very gratifying to note that Canada continues to enjoy a prosperity
rarely equalled tn the history of the nation. The volume ot exports and Imports during the year just closed exceeds that of any previous record. The
revenue also shows a remarkable Increase, the receipts on account of tbe
consolidated fund having doubted in the
last ten years. Tbe large number of
private bttUutiat, have receivedjmh^~*��
approval, having for their object the
incorporation of railway and other Industrial enterprises, affords additional
evidence of the general prosperity prevailing over the Dominion. The stream
of immigrants seeking homes ln the
western provinces continues to flow in
Increasing volume, and, owing to the
favorable conditions now existing ln Al-
lieria and Saskatchewan, their vacant
lands are being rapidly taken up.
Several acts of great public utility
huve been added to the laws In the session now drawing to a close. Among
the number I am glad to note an Act
tor the better observance of the Lord's
Day; an Acl In restriction of usury; an
Act to secure the better marketing ot
fruit; an Act requiring that certain articles containing a portion of gold and
silver when offered for sale should be
honestly marked; an Act relating to
Immigrants and immigration, which,
among other provisions, will enable the
authorities to deport undesirable persons.
It is earnestly to be hoped that your
example in passing an Act setting apart
large areas for forest reserves will be
forwarded by those provincial legislatures having jurisdiction over their
public domain, and that a system of reforestation may be adopted In all parts
of the Dominion, thereby preserving the
uniform flow of our rivers and of our
valuable water powers.
In view of tbe many Important acts
passed and of the numerous amendments made to existing laws during
this session, it has been found expedient to stay the issue of the volumes of
the revised statutes In order that tbe
recent legislation may be embodied.
Gentlemen of the House of Commons,
I thank you In his majesty's name for

Just how much philanthropy, both intended and bu to-conscious, underlies the
EtctiviUea i��f tne ordinary professional,
commercial and Industrial Individual is
a subject upon which II would be profitable for many of the class-conscious agitators of modern limes to reflect. A
selection may be made from almost
any walk of life to successfully Illustrate our argument The case of a physician us an Instance���a profession
which is fundamentally philanthropic,
for there can bo little that is ��<> much
(ike u divine visitation to a sufferer as
the professional services of a successful pathologist who administers the
means of relief. While ii is true that
the professional services oi a physician
are ordinarily rendered in the expectation thai remuneration will follow,
there are many cases on the call list
of tbe successful practitioner from
which no pay is ever expected, particularly among the poor. The doctor's
time is ai tlif disposal of his patients,
:iml no hour, however Inconvenient, will
lind the true medical man recreant to
his professional duties.
The barrister who lias an honest
pride in his profession, and who enters
it wiih high ideals of professional honor
and a deep sense pf his responsibility
to his  fellows,   in   the  devotion   of  his
energies and legal acumen to secure
justice for his oppressed fellows, is do-
Ing what is essentially a philanthropic
service to society. It is true lie has his
office hours and his fixed remuneration,
but the ambitious and honest in this
professional class earn their briefs to
their homes, and, in their concern for
their clients' Interests, often worry incessantly until a cause Is won or lost,
So we might enlarge and show thai
whatever the remuneration attached to
this vv thin form of service, the idea
which underlies it Is philanthropic. To
suppose thai a man is noi a producer
simply because he does not toil with
his hands Is, in the proacnl complex organization Of society, to lull into grievous error.
Bui it Ih our Intention more particularly to refer to a gradually decreasing
section of society���.thai class commonly
Known as the middle man���the merchant, the retailer, or, Id other case:..
the wholesaler; ihe man who. In modern commercial life, stanus between the
great producing centres and ihe consumers and forms a connecting liul. fnr
the convenJenl distribution of products
on lhe one hand, aud supplying of necessities on the oilier; the merchant
or nuinager of small businesses as distinguished from those who constitute
the employed class, as the clerks and
shop-hands. The agitation for class-
coiiHcious existence and recognition, for
better wages and for shorter hours, for
holidays and half holidays, for early
closing and late opening, have all combined to work a singular hardship to
Ihe employer of labor,
The  employee  who.  having  finish od
his day's work, and iu due lime    his
week's work, goes lo his borne or lodg
ing with no necessary care or responsibility iill the next day begins. The
day's business may have been profitable
or the reverse���it boots him not. The
thousand and one conditions affecting
lhe markets, the slumps or rise in
prices, are all one to dim, save as his
���employer may direct his energies and
systematize his labors, It is not so,
however, with the employer. His day's
work is never done. The burden of
his business is ever with him. He has
no hours that he can call his own, unless in very affluent circumstances or
in command of exceptionally successful
business. The keen competition of his
rivals necessitates thai he should ever
be on the alerl less some favored opportunity should slip past him and drop
into the lap of bis opponent. The balance on bis ledger is bis constant con
cern, and the thought, worry and care
thai must be bestowed upon a thousand details of his business are things
which rarely occur to his employee; His
business���that of bringing within convenient reach the necessities of life-
is essentially philanthropic, and if he
Is capable and wide-awake, he is doing
a genuine service lo his community-
one perhaps as valuable to society as
any other,
We do not argue for longer hours nor
for decreased wages, nor for any lessening of the rights and privileges enjoyed
by the employees as a class. , Rather,
If possible, the reverse. These present
day privileges are the result of much
well directed und some 111 directed effort. We simply plead for a recognition of the value to society that is rendered in the services of those who are
often looked upon askance by the
masses aud by agitators and demagogues as a non-producing factor in society.
Many a journeyman artisan or unhappy clerk has drawn his pay for years,
grumbling al the supposedly happier
condition of his employers, who in after
years, launching out into business for
himself, has found thai the happiest
hours of his life have been those in
which be worked for wages and with no
care beyong his strict obligations to his
employer. The strife aud rivalry, good-
natured as it is, bei ween modern business establishments is such thai no
one need feel envious at the apparent
happy circumstances of this class. Ii
is mil by stirring up class^conscious
feelings, engendering jealousy and bete
thai society will be regenerated, it is,
lirsl, by calm, dignified Insistence on
personal rigbls, and ihen by generous
and jusi appreciation of the righis of
olhers. The reflection that we are all
pans of an organic whole, nnd thai our
System is such, and always musl lie
such, I bat each man who in some honest work of life is seeking to serve his
fellows is entitled io lhe respect and
credit which he earns, is one upon
which we all may agree. But there
are many occupations in which men are
placed between the upper and the
nether millstones, and modern business
Ine is one of them. Respect tbe middleman.
Now that the city has again secured
the privilege of using the tramway
park, und has had some necessary
dealing of tbe grounds performed, It Is
Up to some one or more of the many
societies of the clly to make provision
for recreations and other attractions to
Induce the people to patronize botli the
park and the tramway operated by the
olty. The hoi weather is upon ns to
slay, and while u number of city families have ranches or camping facilities
across the lake, the proportion of those
able to enjoy these is comparatively
small. The closing of shops at the hour
uf C o'clock leaves months "I fine and
warm summer evenings to be spent
somewhere, and there is no more ideal
spot than Lakeside Park, within easy
access of tbe cltlzi US.
A systematic program of attractions
should be undertaken, not only for the
good Ihey might do and the pleasure
they might afford, but indirectly they
would materially increase the revenue
of the street railway. The pavilion at
tbe park should be kept open and not
locked. There are no vandalB in the
city, and the trump element is practically extinct as far as the interior is
concerned, so that little harm would be
risked by leaving tbe building open.
Tbe leasing oi the pavilion for refresh
meni privileges Is not beyond ihe
bounds of possibility^ ami that In itself
would afford some Inducement for peo
pie to spend iheir evi Qlngs by the
lake, ii is satisfactory to know thai
this mailer was discussed ar a recent
meeting of the Twenty Thousand Club,
hut so far as we have learned, the mailer has ended ihen', like so many other
proposals that are discussed and left to
die unborn. Visitors to ibe city never
hear of th'' park unless by accident,
whereas a program id' some sort a few
nines a week would make j; ihe subject
of talk, irathe would be im ceased and
an Important source of revenue to the
ciiy developed.
If, as reported in our news columns
yesterday, a carload of fruit on its way
lo this cily was held at the boundary
from Monday till Thursday morning.
there must be some other explanation
for the delay than the indifference of
customs authorities or fruit inspectors.
Whatever may have been the ca.use of
the long delay, were such to occur frequently, it would seriously interfere
with the Importation of the class of
fruits which are so necessary to urban
life and which are not Indigenous to
the province of British Columbia. For
some lines of food and fruit supply Nelson bus yet io depend upon Importations, and, as in, the case of bananas,
a fruit of a rapidly perishing nature, a
couple nf days' delay will mean Ihe loss
of a shipment of goods. This will make
importers chary, aud directly injure the
business of the city, which is a distrlb
tiling centre for a large territory. The
Importance of the subject should not
be overlooked, and whatever is the
cause of delay should be removed, and
prompt shipment should be the rule
wiibout exceptions,

Judges Declined to Act in the Pendray
Thu Colonial, sets forth ihe reasons,
bo far an they are actually known, and
makes the following comment:
The provincial government has appointed M,r. Fred Peters, K. C, as commissioner to enquire into the charges
tbaat have been preferred against tho
department of lands and works in connection with the Pendray lots by the
Vancouver World. It will be remembered that il was at first proposed to
appoint a member of the supreme court
bench to act in this capacity, but as
the mailer of judges taking on other
duties than those for which they are
paid by the Dominion has had official
Consideration at Oilawii and has bi'eii
discussed in parliament, the local mem-
lii'iH of the judiciary naturally felt a
delicacy about accepting the eouiiiiis-
Blon. It is questionable, of course,
whether an enquiry of ihis kind would
fall within the ban of the law, as it
might very well be regarded as an invest igai ion in the public inl crest, in
which a judge, by the strict letter of
the statuie, would be permitted to act;
but our judges evidently decided t<> be
on the safe side, and Lhe government
was compelled to reaped their wishes.
Moreover, tlie authorities at Ottawa no
doubt feel thai there is an objection to
judges aciing In mailers in which po
liiical issues are involved, ami doubl-
leis have, by circular letter or otherwise. Indicated iheir policy in thai re-
gard. In this ca��e, the charges made,
of course, have a strong political complexion, and. to Koine extent at least,
won iii be embarrassing. Tho salaries
of judges bave been Increased in order
that no excuse can be offered for their
doing other than strictly judicial work.
In apiHiiniiiig Mr. Peters, we think
ihat the government has made a good
and a wise selection, it has shown its
confidence in the strength of Its own
case. Mr'. Peters, as is well known, is
a Liberal, and, therefore, it cannot be
said that any advantage has been
sought in the gentleman charged with
the conduct of the enquiry. Had a
Conservative, however well qualified to
try the case, or however fair-minded
lie might be, have beeu appointed, it
would immediately have been charged
by the opposition lhat it was for the
purpose of blocking a free aud full In*
vestigatlon of the facts. Now', however,
the position of the governmenl is unassailable, and. assuming ihat lhe finding
of Lue commissioner will be in its fa-
\or, it will have scored a great moral
and political victory over its opponents.
The investigation, we understand, will
proceed without   delay.
J. J. Hill Arranging to Build Factories
in   Duluth.
Winnipeg, July 13.���It was rumored
in Winnipeg railway circles yesierday
mat James J. Hill had completed arrangements for the -construction of a
large steel manufacturing plant at Duluth. Minn. Mr. Hill has returned to
Si. Paul from the easl, where it is said
he completed arrangements for ihe con
struction of the projected plant.
Practically all the steel of Ihe west*
ern states is manufactured in the east,
mostly in Pittsburg, I'a. With all tin1
natural facilities for the manufacture
or steel to be found ai the head of the
takes, Mr. Hill, it is said, believes that
the necessity of shipping steel from the
east to the wesi could be avoided. However, the primary objeri in determining
Mr. 11111 in ihe erecting of the steel
plant is the fact ihat ail of the sieel
rails of his railway would be manulac
lured ul his plant.
The erection of a steel plant at the
head of the lakes would mean a vast
economic saving to the west in freight
age, as ihe iron ore of the Minnesota
iron ranges is shipped to the large
plants In the east, lo be reshipped west
again In finished products. It was said
here lhat some of the capitalists of lhe
iron range district would be allied with
the Creai Northern magnate in the con-
���Uilbtlon of the plant.
Winnipeg  Street Car  Men  Conciliated
by Company.
Winnipeg, .Inly 12.-���The Street Railway Bmployees' union held a midnight
meeting in Friendship   ball   Tuesday
nlghl. aboul 200 men being present, to
receive and consider the report of Ihe
committee appointed by ihem to conduct negotiations with the company respecting working arrangements for iho
Sunday car service. The committee re-
ported having already met the directors, and ihat the following conditions
were offered by lhe company:
1. That runs for regular men conform as nearly as practicable to an
eight   and  a  half hour  work day    for
2. Any regular motormnn or conductor required to work over nine hours on
Sunday to receive pay a1 the rate of
time and a half.
The request for ten hours' pay for
eight nnd a half hours' work on Sunday
was refused on the grounds thai the
company had not asked for Sunday
catSj and at present were nol in a position to know if they could he operated
al a profit.
