J.   P.   MeGoldrick   Discusses   Plans   for
Mill  in  Fairview.
J. P. MeColdrlok. who has been visiting the Kast Kootenay mills and camps,
was present at the lumbermen's meeting In Nelson yesterday. To a repre-
senlattve of The Daily Canadian who
asked as to the probable dale of the be-
ginning of operations in Fairview. he
"Our plans arc not quite definite yet.
We haven't completed all the Improvements we have planned for our Spokane
plant Cntll 1 have something definite
to say I don't wish to say anything. I'll
be here again within a month and may
have more definite plans then.
"Yes, 1 visited the site, and I was
surprised at the fecundity of the soil.
We left It cleared, aud In some way,
without any aid that we have been Informed of. a flock of ducks, a number
of pigs and a pigpen have grown right
out of the  Boll."
Mr. MeGoldrick was quite willing to
discuss the lumber situation generally.
He said: "I understand prices are not
going to be raised, and I don't Bee how
they can lie lowered. The price of everything is rising. Wages for labor have
gone up 50 per cent, and efficiency has
gone down SO per cent Horses that wo
got a year ago for $200 now cost |350
Hay has gone up In a year from $11 to
$21. and yet It is the farmers who are
making these profits that kick' about
the high prices of lumber."

Subject of Discussion at
The Hague
Britain Maintains Right of Blockade
���Brazil Gives Qualified Support to America. .
The Hague, July 9.���The entire afternoon sitting of the committee on the
Geneva conference the The Hague
pea' e conference was devoted to a discussion of the American proposition.
submitted by Joseph II. Choate on
June 24th, regarding the inviolability
of private property on the high seas.
The committee Bat under tbe presidency
or Pror. Da Maartens, M. Nelldoff, (Russian), president of the conference, was
present. Joseph H. Choate, General
Horace Porter, i". M. Rose and C. M.
Huchanan, of the American delegation,
and David J. Hill, American minister to
the Netherlands, were present. Many
delegates surrounded the place reserved
for the American representatives, who
were busy answering confidential Inquiries regarding the scope and exteut of
the American doctrine.
Immediately after the opening ot the
sitting. Mr. Choate said the American
delegation regretted It was unable to
conrorm to the decision reached by the
president that all propositions be submitted by the end of the week, because
some propositions were not yet quite
ready. They asked to be allowed to
submit these later. The committee assented.
The discussion of the American proposition was then begun. This proposal
is as follows: "The private property of
all citizens of signatory powers with
tho exception of the contrabrand of war,
shall be exempt on the high seas or
elsewhere from capture or seizure by
the armed vessels or military forceB of
said powers. Nothing In this rule Implies in any way the inviolability ot
vessels which will attempt to enter a
port blockaded by the naval forces of
Bald powers, nor of the cargo of Bald
W. H. De Beauford (Holland) then
read a declaration stating that the
Dutch government adhered to the
American principle, considering It great
progress toward the humanitarian Ideas
prevailing in the present time, consequently Holland would support any pro-
posal  tending to secure this principle.
M. Ruy Hurhosa (llrazlll delivered a
long speech, In which he explained that
the statement made by him on June
28, owing to the semi-secrecy of the
conference had been wrongly Interpreted as an unconditional adhesion to
the American proposition. He wished
to make it clear that Brazil wus not
the catspaw of America, although she
supported this American principle. M.
Ilarbosa continued that as a general
understanding could not be reached on
the American proposition, he begged to
Introduce several amendments that
would constitute a temporary solution
or the matter along the lines bo far as
possible of applying the principles of
land warfare to private property at sea.
Prof. De Maartens read a declaration presented In writing by the Argentine delegation saying they were
favorable to the conservation of the
right of capture.
Sir Ernest M. Satow, then made a
declaration on behalf of Great Britain.
He said he realized the serloUB character of the arguments In favor of the
Inviolability of private property on the
high seas, but tho diBcusslon showed
the evident and logical tendency toward the abolition of the commercial
blockade. Sir Ernest demonstrated to
what an extent the limitation of block-
ados would complicate mnttcrs, and
create new causes of dispute, as a result of which the discussions between
belligerents would give rise to fresh
Irritation, which might tend to prolong
the war instead of shortening It. The
Inviolability of property and the limitation of blockades are Inseparable
questions, the English representative
continued, and Great Britain for the
moment does not find the movement
toward the Ideal aim, namely, the abolition for war, sufficiently accentuated to
bo able to associate herself with the
American doctrine.
"What Groat Britain thinks necessary
to establish." Sir Ernest then declared,
"Is respect for tho Interest of neutrals;
thnt Is why she proposed the abolition
of contrabrand."
Baron Marsohal Von Blerbersteln
(Germany) Bald that Germany would
be ready to collaborate In the projection of private property at sea but on
condition thai tbe queBtlon how to make
this protection efficacious be first eluci
dated. M. Tcharykoff declared that the
Russian delegation has profound respect
for the ideas set forth by Mr. Choate
Inn It did not think the queBtlon wuh
yet ripe for solution. Dr. F. Hagerap
then voiced the adherence of Norway
to tho American doctrine. He said that
Norway would vote for the American
proposition on condition that the question of coctrabrand was examined. The
Portuguese delegated subscribed to the
statement of the German delegate, that
It Is first necessary to solve the questions of contraband and blockade.
Old   New   Brunswick   Liberals   Oppose
His Promotion.
Toronto, July 9.���A St. John, N. B..
special received here today declares
that a strong undercurrent of hostility
to the advancement of Hon. Wm. Pugs
lev has developed in tlie ranks of Ihe
old-time Liberals of St. John. The Lib
erals. It la said, do not want the promotion of PugBley, and do not want an
added measure of David Russell Influence. They would turn Mr. Pugsley
down if at the same time they could
see their way to strengthen the claims
uf st  John to gain favor.
The Liberals favor the appointment
of Senator Ellis. This would be merely carrying out a promise made when
the Laurier cabinet was under construction In 1896. The New Brunswick portfolio was to have gone to Senator Ellis
but was handed over at the last moment
to A. G. Blair, notwithstanding which
Mr. Ellis has unswervingly maintained
his allegiance to the best Liberal tradition. In the rehabilitation uf the government. It Is urged, the appointment
of Senator Ellis would be quite In order.

many from the i'nlted States, climbing.
There are 160 people in camp.
Rome Declares War.
tu��me. July 9.���The Vatican has been
Informed of th*, avistence of a secret
International league, embracing Kalian
and Anglo-Saxon countries, of which, It
Is said, many members are of the German Catholic centre. The ostensible object of the league is the petitioning of
the Vatican for the suppression of the
Index Expurgatorlus, but it is stated
that Its real object Is to stir up strife
among Catholics, causing schisms similar to the ultra-liberal movement In
Italy. The pope, it is asserted, will
Bhortly take Bevere disciplinary measures against the new league.
Provincial    Ministers   Well   Received-
Westerners Want Only More
Port Arthur. Out., July 9.���Last
night's meeting of Ontario cabinet ministers here developed Ihe fact that bo
far as bccosbIou Is concerned there is
no sentiment here In that direction. Tho
utmost friendliness toward Ontario was
manifest in the applause and general
tone of the meeting. Mr. Preston, the
local member suggested thnt the riding
should be divided, and In this sugges
tioh wns backed by R. R. Gamey and
other New Ontario members. The min
istei-H themselves did not mention this
subject, nor did they reject It.
Mr. Cochrane, referring to the agitation on Rainy river, said there was no
way by which a division of the province
could take place. Perhaps by a general
vote of the people It could, but OKI On
tarlo would never consent to a division.
In the matter of Improvements, the government desired to do everything possible, but the growth had been so rapid
that difficulty to keep pace had been
experienced. On the policy or settlement, he declared against opening ot
townships lor settlement which do not
contain at least 40 per cent, of agricultural lands. TownBhlps which do not
come up to this standard should be held
as forest reserves. All roads should
be built before Bottlers are located. He
did not think it right to place families
In the bush away from highways.
Dr. Roaume's principal announcement
was that the government's local buildings should be Improved to harmonize
with the growth of the city.
Intrusive Advertising.
The land owners on the north shore
'of the Arm are aroused al tho defacing

Toklo. July 9���The Anaki publishes
an interview with a Japanese naval expert who says: "It would be Improper to
Infer a demonstration In the transfer

movement is part of a pre-arrangemeut
and is a result oi the constant growth
of the Americah navy and the Increasing importance of the Pacific from a
strategical ixrlnt of view No significance need be attached until nt least 30
ships have been transferred to the Pacific. The Ashal also publishes an article setting forth the same views. It
regrets the American fleet cannot visit
Japan to reassert her sincerity and to
reciprocate the naval hospitality evtend-
ed to the visiting Japanese warships at
Jamestown. The paper also urges the
abrogation of Article 2 of the existing
commercial treaty in order to put an
end to the cause of the anti-Japanese
feeling at San Francisco. Almost all the
papers treat the matter with calmness,
finding ti iwiuini Cot t*h�� United states

London. July 9.���The Daily Mall, in
an article on the Japanese-American situation, says: "Around the immense
arena of the Pacific Ocean the embattled nations of the world are gathering
as the nntions gathered around the
Mediterranean 2,000 years ago. Careful
observation will cause universal agreement that the great events of the 20th
century will be around the rim of this
vast saucer. War between Japan and
America is unthinkable. We believe
the Intentions of the States, of both
countries, are profoundly pacific, and
that tho incidents at San Francisco are
not responsible for the movement of the
Araorlcan fleet. Japan commenced the
war with Russia without previous declaration by destroying half of the Russian fleet. Such a move was very effective the first time It was performed
and henceforth no nation will wait for
the formal declaration of war, but will

Railway Commission Orders Carrier to
Assume Risks.
Ottawa, July 9.���The railway comls-
sion has Issued an order approving a
new Canadian freight classification. No.
13, to become effective not later than
Sept. 1st next. The more important
features of this revised classification
are that some 240 commodities, which
have hitherto been carried at the risk
of the owner, will hereafter be carried
at tlie carrier's risk without any advance in ratings, and that on these articles, which will still he carried at the
risk of the owner the risk is to be specified and restricted to breakage, chafing,
leakage, sifting, loss, damage or deterioration by fire or weather as the case
may be. These restrictions are also intended to cover only risks necessarily
incidental to transportation, but no such
limitation, expressed or otherwise, is to
relieve the carrier from liability for any
loss or damage which may result from
any negligence or omission of the railway employees. These changes are distinctly an Improvement on the old system, and should prove of great benefit
to the public. Provision Is also made
against any special contracts on the
part of the railway companies to release
them from liability for damages from
any cause whatsoever except those expressly permitted by the claslflcatlon.

Cobalt, July 9.���The present trouble
at the Nlplssing, which resulted in
about 250 men walking out yesterday
morning, Is due, as gleaned by a correspondent from the manager and members of the Miners' Union, to a dispute
over contract matters and the schedule
ot wajces. Mr. J. MeOe're, the president of the union, and Mr. Arthur Betly,
the financial secretary, last night attended on Mr. T. R. Drummond, the manager, and presented him with a schedule
of wages prepared by the union. Mr.
Drummond is giving the matter of the
proposed schedule his consideration,
and will give his decision on Saturday
next, when it Is altogether likely that
there will be a settlement. In the
meantime, those who quit work are
quietly awaiting the result. They have
assured Capt. Maye, of the Nlpisslug.
that they have no Intention of making
any out of the way demonstration.
The property of tho National Silver
Cobalt company, which consists of three
twenty-acre lots, lying adjacent to one
another and one mile north of Cassldy
Station, is being thoroughly developed
this season under Mr. Joseph Hicks,
the superintendent. Mr. Hicks is also
the superintendent of the W. J. Trethe-
wey, which lies about one mile west of
the National Silver property. The policy
of the comoanv for the season is to
thoroughly prospect their lots by stripping and trenching when necessary. For
the present at least no sinking will be
done, owing the lack of machinery. A
force of ten men are employed on the
property doing the development work.
So far there have been exposed about
half a dozen fissure veins ranging in
width from bIz Inches to two feet, with
abundance of calcite, which show
stringers of quarts carrying Iron and
copper sulphides. In fact nearly all the
known sulphideB are present In most
of these veins, but there is no showing
of silver. Smaltito, galena, and some
zinc sulphide are shown in several
places. All told there has been done on
tho property over one thousand feet of
trenching, the width aud depth as necessity requires, running from three to
four feet. Although no sinking Is being
done nt the present time, several shafts
were being sunk before the new management took hold of the property. On
the most southern, near the railway, a
shaft has been sunk to the depth of 87
feet. Some work may be done soon on
this shaft, ns the vein showing here is
most encouraging, the vein at the bottom showing native silver, which discovery was made at the time the property changed hands.
Methodist S. 3. Picnic.
The annual picnic of the Methodist
Sunday school will be held at procter
ou Thursday. The steamer Moyle will
leave the city wharf at 8:30 a. m. and
1:30 p. ni. There will be the usual programme of sporta.
The meeting of the lumbermen which
waB in progress yesterday afternoon,
ended shortly before ti o'clock. O. P.
Wells, secretary, Informed The Dally
Canadian that the only business transacted was a revision and readjustment
of prices which would not amount to
either a general raising or lowering.
Mr. Wells tendered his resignation as
secretary, which was declined. W. A.
Anstie was appointed assistant secretary, his chief duty to consist of visiting the mills and keeping in touch with
conditions and requirements. Mr. Wells,
with additional assistance, will supervise the work of the central ofllee.
The rest of the business was informal
but not unimportant. It was stated by
many that attempts to buy timber sooth
ot the border had been unsuccessful, as
owners there are realizing higher prices
and greater net profits than those in
It was agreed that conditions In general promise improvement at once. The
mill men were glad of the recent comparative slump as it enabled them to
overtake the accumulation of orders.
Nevertheless, on account of the scarcity of labor, and the unprecedented cost
of material, equipment, supplies and labor, many have declared their intention
ot greatly curtailing their next winter's
out and reserving their assets until conditions improve. Such a policy, Mr.
Wells remarked, will lead to a scarcity
of lumber nest Spring as there will certainly be no reserve, or sn Insignificant
one, thla fall.
Depositions as to Bradley Incident Continued���Moyer Next.
Boise, July 9.���The reading of the
depositions taken in San Francisco in
connection with the explosion at the
residence of Fred Bradley, whom Orchard swears he twice attempted to assassinate, continued today as one of the
closing features on the side of the defence in the trial of William D. Haywood, accused of the murder of Frank
Steunenberg, by the state. The Bradley incident is looked upon aa one of
the most important features of their
case In support o fthe Orchard story.
The defence has all along maintained
that the attempt to poison Bradley and
his whole household and the explosion
at the house, which Orchard says was
caused by a bomb placed by im, are a
fabrication. Orchard says that he was
commissioned by Haywood to go to San
Francisco and kill Bradley, who had
been a consistent enemy to organized
labor. He swore he first poisoned the
milk with arsenic and, failing in this,
placed a bomb under Bradley's front
door mat with a string attached to the
handle. It was, according to Orchard,
one of the bombs invented by Petti-
bone. At the time given by Orchard an
explosion occurred at the Bradley house
just aa Bradley himself was coming out
of the house, smoking a cigar. Bradley
was terribly mangled, but recovered.
Shortly after the explosion the owner
of the house sued the company for damages and got judgment because of an
escape of gas, which It was claimed
caused the explosion. Bradley still
m.-tlntalns his belief that the explosiou
was caused by gas.
It Is not likely now that Moyer Will
go on the .stand before tomorrow. His
testimony will probably take one day
and on Thursday Haywood will be
called. His examination probably will
take up the remainder of the week and
the state's rebuttal is hardly looked for
before  next  Monday.

Aprojiros of tlie return nf Premier Mr-
Bride from wliat it is pleased to call a
"prolonged jaunt to EJngland." our esteemed locul contemporary is pleased
to remark:
"There will be some prelence of a
triumph achieved in London to justify
Mr. afoBride's long absence from the
province, but after the political fireworks are over it is to be boned thai
the premier will get down to business
and dispose of several matters lhat
have  long   been  held   over."
It would be Impossible for editorial
comment to be more Inept, II Knglish
words nu an anything tlie hurried business tri|i of the premier lias been anything but a jaunt. Ue lias not been
wasting his time saying florid nothings
at banquets and posing In plintngra-
pbers' studios or elsewhere. Canada
sent one representative to London who
can do enough of that for the whole Im
"Some pretence of a triumph
achieved" must refer, if the words are
lnlended to convey any coherent meaning, to the elimination of the words
"final and unalterable" from the
amendment asked to the British North
America Act's financial  clauses.
Lord Elgin. Mr. Winston Churchill,
Sir Krancis Hopwood and other olllclals
of the llrltlsh colonial office imagined
that they were recommending a very
Important alteration, the British House
of Commons look Ihe same view. The
press of Eastern Canada, Irrespective of
party, acknowledges the significance of
the omission. Hut these authorities are
nothing to our esteemed local contemporary, to whom It Is only "some pretence of a triumph."
But the logical conclusion of such a
statement must certainly have eluded
our contemporary. If the triumph Is
nothing, It can only be because Ihe
words  mean  nothing,  and   Sir  Wilfrid
Laurier is guilty of incorporating a
meaningless rhetorical phrase into an
Important amendment to the act which
is the constitution of Canada, it is im-
possible to belittle the achievement of
Richard Mcliride without impeaching
the intelligence of Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
Of course our contemporary didn't
see that.
Tho opposition press of British Columbia is seriously perturbed because
there is one empty chair in the provincial cabinet. There has been a period
of about six months during which the
department of lands and works has
been In charge of a minister holding
another portfolio.
Granting that It Is best, In the Interest of efficiency that there should always
be a res|ionslble minister In churge of
each department of the public service,
and that a double burden should never
be placed upon one man unnecessarily,
what have the Liberal press to say of
the vacancies in the Ottawa cabinet,
where two departments, the two most
important of all, public works anil railways, whose interests are not confined
to one province but extend from ocean
to ocean, are still without responsible
In ads? One of them indeed, the department of public works, has been vacant
for nearly  two years.
The situation is without a parallel In
Canadian history, as are the means by
which c. S Hyman was last elected In
London, and his clown play with his
seat and portfolio since he started on
his  nervous prostration holiday.
Of the situation and the hopes and
fears arising from It, the Toronto News
"It Is laborious work reorganizing the
Ottawa government during the hot season, and particularly dining the absence
of Sir Wilfrid Laurler. It was careless
of the premier to leave the country with
this task Incomplete. The suspense and
I lie hot weather may be fatal to some of
Ihe aspirants. It is trying also to journalists who have the burden of cabinet,
making on their shoulders. How can Mr.
Archie Campbell enjoy his holidays with
his gaze fixed on a vacant portfolio? Is
Ihe summer for Mr. Calvert, of Strath-
rody; Mr. Hardee, of Sarnla; Mr. Sutherland, of Windsor, to be a fragrant
memory or a life-long regret? We cannot answer, nor can they. Even the
fate of slippery William Ib unsettled,
but that Is a case where sea air and
sea bathing will give a measure of relief. Deep are mysteries of statesmanship, and footsore and weary are they
who go up towards the high places.
Hut It should be possible to get at Sir
Wilfrid by cable."
By the appointments to provincial offices announced yesterday, two faithful
and efficient public servants, 10. A
Crease and W. R. .larvis. retire from
positions they have filled In the public
interest foi- many years, anil another.
W. H llulliick-Websler, passes from Ihe
cnmniand of the provincial police In the
district, a position in which his services
have been an important factor in keeping a good name for Kootenay in re
spect of observance of the law. All
three pass Into other spheres of activity
and will carry with them the best wishes of their follow citizens, who are all
pleased tliat tho changes do not involve
the removal of any of them from Nelson. The new appointees have their
spurs to win. but It can be said that all
reflect credit on Ihe committee that recommended mid the government that appointed them. The retirement of Chief
.larvis from tlie head of the city police
force will presumably mean the promotion of Sergeant Arthur A. Pitchford,
who has well earned It by zealous and
intelligent performance of every task
hitherto assigned him
Canadian    Northern's    Detailed    Report
Shows  Northwest Crop  Prospects Excellent.
Winnipeg. July 9.���The Canadian
Northern railway crop report received
today Is one the most favorahle that

every other point. The weather is also
as good for rapid and healthy growth
as could be desired, and the reports of
the agents throughout the section generally conclude with words to the effect
that "Weather conditions could not be
improved." At Invermay the growth
has been splendid and the wheat there
is over 10 inches high, while from other
points equally favorable conditions prevail. At Mayment the wheat Is 20
inches high.
The Carman to Virden section has
been equally favored. Baldur, Ninnette,

where the attempt to establish the still
was made.
Even with that the work might have
gone on In comparative security if tho
man who seems to have been the executive head of the affair had payed his
rent, but the non-payment of the rent
and a subsequent seizure of the property discloaed such a remarkable state of
affairs that the officers of the law were
fairly nonplussed.
In the meantime the executive head
referred to cannot be  found.
Some time ago, a French-Canadian
gentleman of good address, rented a
warehouse belonging to Mr. Frank K
McKeyes, owner of the Dominion Mutton works, whose establishment Is at
428 Visitation street.
The warehouse rented is right in the
rear of the factory.
The gentleman In nuostion, who has
prominent social connections, paid his
rent a month in advance, and announced that he Intended to go into the
business of manufacturing Canadian
Later developments, however, have
given rise to the suspicion that this
was only a blind, and that in reality he
intended to manufacture Canadian whiskey on the quiet.
As soon as he took possession he
1 itiutrd the windows of the warehouse,
and started to acquire a lot of lumber.
This lumber, he told Mr. McKeyes upon
Inquiry, was intended to reinforce the
second floor of the building, where he
Intended to put eight big vats for the
reception of the wine.
The vats were delivered at the warehouse and they were immense affairs,
capable of at least containing 500 gallons each.
Then a very suspicious thing happened. Gangs of Italians were seen
coming Into the warehouse at early
morning hours, and sometimes at night.
What they did no one knew, but the
neighbors had their suspicions.
Gradually Mr. McKeyes, who owns a
couple of dozen tenements in the vicinity of the factory and goes around each
week in person to collect the rent, was
informed that there was something
strange going on, and when it happened
that the tenant asked for a small extension of time to pay his rent in advance last month, the extension was refused him.
The next thing was the mysterious
and inexplicable absence of the tenant,
an absence which neither his friends nor
his family could explain, and on top of
thsl came the Information that the revenue officers had stealthily visited tlie
Mr. McKeyes placed the matter in
the hands of his attorneys, and started
suit for rent and was appointed guardian of the place.
Then the wonderful discoveries were
made. The lower floor of the warehouse,
where a new wooden floor had been
laid just previous to the new tenant
corains in. was found to be in the
greatest confusion, xmu Un* floor had
been torn up, and in one corner was
found a deep hole.
On the ground were hundreds of bags
of fresh earth, disposed of between the
eight huge vats which *vere supposed
to hold the new Canadian wine when
it was manufactured, and in one end of
the warehouse was a mound containing
tons  of  earth.
The hole was Investigated next, and
was found*to be the beginning of a tunnel two and a half feet in diameter,
and running along the western wall of
the building for a distance of some 25
or 30 yards, terminating in a subterranean chember 10x15 feet.
The subterranean passage and chamber are very carefully boarded up along
the sides to prevent any cavein,
It is stated by some of the neighbors
who, with envious eyes, seemed to have
kept a watch day and night upon the
doings of the tenant, that ou the evening previous to the visit of the revenue men a big contrivance was taken
out of the warehouse, and carted off in
the dark. They claim that this was the
private still.
Information obtained from some of
the people who seem to have been on
fairly intimate terms with the lessee of
the place, who has disappeared, would
go to show that he has gone either to
Winnipeg, or to St. Paul, Minn.
He told Mr.McKeyes that he had a number of prominent gentlemen associated
with him In his undertaking, and a number of gentlemen at various times telephoned to Mr. McKeyes asking how his
tenant was getting ou, but Jhey always
refused to give their names.
Mr. McKeyes states that efforts are
being made to unravel the mystery of
the subterranean passage and chamber
both by the authorities and other Interested parties; but In the meantime Mr.
McKeyes will sell the gigantic vats to
make up for the damages which this
mysterious tenant has Inflicted upon his
