R. A. Brawn Thinks Doyle Scale Allows
Lumbermen to Defraud the Logging Contractors.
(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Grand Forks, Jan. 23.���A sensation
hns been created among the logging
contractors of this district over the recent discovery of R. A. Brown, a pioneer timber cruiser of this district. Mr.
llrown, who has had over 30 years' experience as a timber man, has shown
by facta and figures that the mill owners al present, by adopting unfair log
scales, are practically robbing the logging contractors out of a large percentage of their timber. In an interview on this subject yesterday Mr.
Brown said: "Al present the logging
contractors of the North Fork district
and elsewhere are compelled to use the
Doyle system. This they have to agree
to In writing before they can secure, a
logging contract. The Quebec system
Is the proper scale to use. There ls a
difference of 33 per cent, between the
Doyle and th Quebec systems. In sawing up logs by the circular saw with
tho present system the band sawmills
will give 25 per cent, more on account
of the sa wcurve on the circular saw,
which cuts out three-eighths of an
Inch in saw curve or sawdust, while
thc band saw only takes out one-sixteenth of an inch, so the band saw
saves out of the logs 25 per cent, more
lumber than the circular saw does. 8o
actually the mill owners who are cutting tholr logs wllh the band saw are
saving out 68 per cent, more lumber
out of the logs than they are paying
for, over nnd above the Doyle and
Schribner scales, and 25 |��r cent, out
over and above what the Quebec rule
BCBles save, providing the logs are
sawed wllh band saws. As a final adjustment of the log scale In queatlon,
Mr. Brown has recommended tbat 25
per cent, more be added to the Quebec
scale when a band bbw Is used than
when It Ib cut with a circular saw. Mr.
Brown stated further that the logging
contractors as well ns the public generally have no Idea that, the mill owners nro robbing the public as they are
doing, getting 58 per cent, of their lumber for nothing. The logging contractors of this section are thoroughly
aroused over this exposure of Mr.
Brown's and Immedlnte steps will be
taken to have this log scale queBtlou
represented in Victoria when tho hotiBO

���Decision Deferred
London, Jan. 23.���The government
here has htard from Governor Sweet-
enham of Jamaica concerning Ihe incident Involving the withdrawal of the
American warship.-, from Kingston.
Absolute secrecy ls maintained at tbe
colonial oflice, but the fact was elicited that during the night a good many
telegrams wyere received Irom Sweet-
euham, some of which dealt with the
Incident. Tluse, it ls u.ider_toon, con-
fir inthe main features of affairs as
already known. It is not at present
the Intention of the colonial office to
make the teiegiams public, the official
view being that it Is a personal a fair
between a gov rnni'isi d part ii.siit, and
an i ffi.lal which is p.opetly adjustable
between them, and the authorities are
in.-lined to the view that the general
interests will be best served by having

meantime being dealt with through the
usual diplomatic channels.
James   Johnstone   on   Fruit Growers'
Debt to Government.
An interesting conversation, containing something of politics, occurred
yesierday afternoon In the office of J.
E. Annable. James Johnstone and Mr.
Annable were ln conversation on matters connected with the Kooteuay Fruit
Growers' Association when Dr. Hall
entered. The conversation then naturally turned to politics. Mr. Johnstone,
who has always been a Liberal ln both
British and Canadian politics, expressed the following opinions:
"I think that every one who is Interested lu fruit growing owes his support
to the McBride government. No one
could have done more to encourage and
help the growth of the industry than
they have done.
"They have sent into the district
their own expert officials and lecturers
from Eastern Canada antl the United
Slates. They have reported on our
soil and climate and have given advice
and practical demonstrations which
have been of the greatest value to the
aettlers In this district, at least, many
of whom were beginners In fruit growing. We have also been supplied with
valuable Information which has been
diligently kept up to date.
"We have received every possible assistance and guidance in the manage-
mrnt of our own associations and exhibition, and it Is the help of the government that has made possible our
participation In those exhibitions ln the
old country that have advertised onr
resources to the world.
"The fact that British Columbia is
now universally recognized as In th.
very front rank of fruit growing countries la due almost entirely to the gen
erous and efficient aid given to th
growers by the officials of the McBride  government."
It Is not recorded Ihnt anyone but
himself Is In a position lo say how Mr.
Johnstone will vote, bul hla fair and
frank testimony to the good work done
Is as creditable to himself as to thc
Many Miners Killed   by   Explosion In

Trinidad, Jan. 23.���Aa oxplosion occurred in the Colorado Fuel & Iron
Co.'s mine nt Prlmero early this morning and 20 miners are reported to have

list may even exceed 20.
Division Superintendent O'Neill with
several physicians left here on a apodal train at 8 o'clock today for Prl-
nii'i'o. Tho explosion occurred In the

been Impossible to gain an entrance.
The explosion occurred at 3 o'clock
Ihis morning. The miners employed
on lbe night shift aro In tbe habit of
going home any time after midnight,
when they have taken out the r. quired
amount or oro. This clcumstance
makes it Imposs ble to learn the exact
number of dead until the m'ne can be
completely explored. It is b -Moved
there were ut least 20 men In the mine.
Women and children are gutbered
ahout the entrance, seeking for hus-
banda, fathers and brothers. Miners

for Two Battleships.
Washington, D. C. Jan. 23.���It is
practically assured that the house committee on naval affairs will approve the
obstruction of another gigantic battleship ln addition to the one decided upon at the last session. As the result

President Koosevelt and Secretary
Metcalfe. Chairman Rosb of the committee said today that he expected the
naval appropriation bill will be reported to the house before the end of the

Preibyterlaln  Missionary Thinks  Hln-
���~    ~"   doos Good Settlers.
Toronto, Jan. 23.���In considering the
Hindoo immigration problem of the Canadian West, the Presbyterian foreign
missionary committee were led yester-
day to lake an opposite view of the situation to that held hy the directors of
lull n- organizations.
Alex Nugent, who had been commissioned from India to enquire is,;o thc
situation, reported that the Hindoos
were a fine class of men and not guilty
of traits ascribed to them. They would
not work for less wages than oralnary
white men. and would, If allowed, settle on farms In this country. Most of
them had been soldiers in India. Personally he would not favor them as a
class for immigrants, but they were
superior to Chinese and wonld make
better citizens In this country than ln
India. At present there were about
2000 of them In Canada. Tbe committee decided to appoint Nugent as a special missionary among the Canadian
Hindoos for the next six months as an
experiment. In view of the Increased
cost of living in Western Canada, tbe
salaries of missionaries were increased.

Summerland, Jan. 22.���Premier McUride arrived here last night on his
back to the coast after a most successful tour of the interior. Since leaving
Greenwood last Saturday he has addressed meetings at Rock Creek, Fair-
view, Keremeos and Pentlclon, at each
of which the gatherings of electors
were the largest ever assembled In
these places to hear political speakers,
and everywhere bis reception, has been
most enthusiastic. At Rock Creek,
Sibley, customs house officer, and Naden. opposition candidate In Greenwood, appeared on the platform to little other purpose than to exhibit the
weakness of the opposition arguments,
while at Keremeos and Fairvlew, Smith
Curtis, accompanied by a band of Dominion office holders that seemed to
be attendant on the Liberal candidates
in their campaign, was given full opportunity to air IiIb views, with the result that the premier, to use slang
terms, wiped the floor with bim, completely refuting Curtis' studied attempt
to make it appear that the government
is under the control of the C. P. R.
Shatford made a very businesslike
speech at Rock Creek, and It Is easy
seeing tbat be will head the polls on
election day.
Winkler, Socialist candidate, one of
the speakers at Fairvlew, said that a
remarkable feature ot tbe campaign ts
the number of Dominion office holders
taking sides on behalf of tbe Liberals,
pointing plainly to tlie attempt of Ottawa to get control of provincial affairs.
At Keremeos large numbers of people dr ve from Hedley, 30 miles away,
to hear the premier. Curtis had hoped
to capture the meeting there, but although his supporters commenced
noisy demonstrations they were soon
si'enced, and when McBride spoke he
completely carried his bearers away

Merely a Coincidence.
To Ihe Editor of The Dally Canadian:
It may be only a coincidence that my
request In yesterday's Issue of your paper for a statement of the policy of
the opposition ls answered this morning by the report ol another scandal.
So far, I am sorry tot say, I have found
no hint of a Liberal policy apart from
the dissemination of news, true or
false, of Conservative wrongdoing.
Now, I have voted Liberal In the last
three Dominion elections, twice In spite
of charges of gross corruption, some
of which, noably those ln connection
with ibe administration of the Yukon,
were practically admitted to be true.
I did so because the Dominion Conservatives' statement of policy was vague;
and in general purpose little different
from that of the Liberals. In so doing
I, In common with many more, condoned open wrongdoing for tbe sake of
having the development policy of the
present Dominion government pursued
by tbe party that initiated it.
Now, before I decide to ignore the
charges of wrongdoing against the
present provincial government���none
of which, so far as I know, have yet
been proved���I should like to ask once
more for a statement of Liberal policy.
Yours sincerely,
All   Candidates   Still   Confident   and
Cloae Contest Is Generally Ad-
Greenwood, Jan. 22.���A remarkably
warm spell has visited the Boundary.
Two very warm Influences, distinctly
separate, appear to have met ln the
dlatrlct. The one from the west, due
to the Japan current, ls removing tthe
snow from the hills with astonishing
rapidity and the other, from tbe east,
known locally as a Grand Trunk Pacific wave, is melting tbe ice from the
spirits of the Liberal party. This party now professes to have some hope of
making a respectable showing in the
coming election. To profess otherwise
would of course be fatal. The Greenwood riding has been liberal, and the
nominee of Ihe Liberal party now running is unquestionably the strongest
man the party could have secured, a
man of large business interests, well
and favorably known to nearly every
voter In the riding, and withal a man
whose Integrity none can assail.
The only explanation at hand for
the remarkably strong position of the
Conservative candidate Is his personal popularity and the profound Impression the efficiency of Uie McBride government has made on the people.
Neither Liberal nor Socialist candidate would seem to have quite loat
heart, however, and the recent warm
spell referred to haa put fresh vigor Into the campaign ot the former party.
Minnesota Protests   Increase   of  tha
Company'! Capital.
St. Paul, Jan. 23.���In the Ramsay
county district court today, Justice Oscar Hallatn signed an order enjoining
Ihe officials of thc Great Northern
Railway company from making the
proposed Increase ot t60.000.000 worth
of additional stock of that company or
issuing tho same or a part thereof
during the pending litigation without
first making application In writing
therefor to tre Minnesota railroad and
warohouse commission, and securing
Its approval thereof, aa provided by
sections 2872 of the revised law of 1905.
This is a vlotory thus far for the state
in tho action brought last month by
Attorney General Young to compel the
railroad to recognise the state railroad
and warehouse commission before .issuing the stock, sb the laws provide
that before a railroad can issue an increase of its capital stock it must make
application to the Btate railroad and
warehouse commission and make a
showing of the necessity for such an
Issue. The Great Northern railroad
claimed under its original charter lt
could Issue stock at will and that the
law granting this power to the railway
and warehouse commission Ib unconstitutional.

Trial ol Barry Ttew for
Associated Press Describes Costumes
Worn by thc Ladies���Defence
Will Head Insanity
New York, Jan. 23.���Scenes approaching absolute disorder attended the
opening of the trial ot Harry K. Thaw
loday, In tbe charge of murdering Stan-,
ford White. Most ot the clashes were
between reporters and correspondents
and the police. Of the newspaper men
there were perhaps 200, and there waa
a policeman for eaeh. The great squadron of bluecoats was commanded by a
police inspector. Only about 60 newspaper writers were finally admitted,
the remainder of the apace in the court
room being reserved for the 200 talesmen summoned on the special Jury
The trial began before Justice FiU-
gerald In part 1, trial term of the supreme court and was scheduled tor
10:20. Before that time the police
lines had be.n extended tram the corridor adjacent to the court room to la-
c.ude the entire first floor of the criminal court building. The public had
heen warned in advance not to attempt
to get into the court room and few appeared.
The quarrels with the police preceding the trial were quickly forgotten
when at 10 o'oloek Mn. William Thaw,
mother of the defeodane, appeared In
the court room. Following her came
the Counteas of Yarmouth and Mrs..
Geo. L. Carnegie, her daughters. Mrs.
Evelyn Nesbitt Thaw, wile of Harry,
came next and waa closely followed by
May MoKeoxie, the actress, to whose
home Evelyn Thaw fled oo the night
of the tragedy on the top of Madison
Square Garden, June 25 last The par
ty of relatives waa completed hy Edward Thaw, Harry's brother, and Geo.
Carnegie, hla brother-in-law. The
Countess of aYnnouth wore a modest
brown cloth gown, a brown far hat
and veil. Mrs. Evelyn Thaw was
dressed all In gray wllh a hat and veil
of the same color.
Dlatrlct Attorney Jerome appeared
in conn at 10:20. At this time most
of the talesmen had arrived and the
room waa crowded. Justice Fitsgerald
took his seat at 10:20 a. m. and then
the trial waa on.
There was a decided atlr In court
when two prominent alienist doctors,
Carlos McDonald and Austin Flint, were
escorted Into court and given seata Inside the clerk's rail, where they con-
aulted with Mr. Jerome. These same
doctors represented the district attorney when the Josephine Teeranova
trial was stopped ln order that a teat
might be made of her sanity.
Deming B. Smith, GO years old, a
retired umbrella manufacturer, waa accepted and sworn as the first juror In
the Thaw case.
When the roll call ot the Jury panel
waa begun there were several absentees
and the court Imposed a fine of $100
on each. Dr. Mabln, a third expert
lolned Drs. Flint and McDonald. When
the roll call had beon completed Mr.
Jerome moved that the trial proceed.
Judge Fitsgerald admonished the
thnn; In the curt roam thnt absolute
order must be maintained.
"Harry K. Thaw, to the bar," shouted
the clerk.
The prisoner appeared almost Immediately. He walked somewhat, nervously st first, but when he caught eight
of his mother and his wife aud the other members of his family his somewhat solemn face lighted into a smile.
He bowed as he passed to his seat
beetle h<s counsel.
Thaw carried a plaid ulster coat on
his arm. It was rather chilly In the
court room and he threw the coat about
'It, shoulders.
Wt'hont further ado the task of selecting a jury was begun. Charles W.
Brvson, an engineer, was the first
talesman. He declared he had no conscientious scruoles against capital pun-
shment but had formed an unalterable
opinion as to the defendant's guilt or
Mr. Jerome made his first reference
to the unwritten law.
He said: "There Is a so-celled higher law, an unwritten law. Would yon
allow such a law to enter Into ytour
Counsel for Thaw objected.
Justice Fitsgerald said the witness
had already replied that as to points
of law be would be guided by tbe

that a part of the credit belongs to
thc- government, though he thinks thai,

done still better. No one objects to

For Mr. Mclnnes' unblushing denial
of what is patent to all. the phrase that
at once suggests itself is the one that
JrTr. Mclnnes borrowed from J. T. Mortimer���"insufferable gall."

McBride government." Mr. Rithet has
Never been a party man. No one will

in Hritish Columbia bava testified in
their annual reports during the Iimt
three years 10 tlie marked Improvement
in Industrial sad commercial conditions. Local managers of banking
bouses have given tbe same testimony,
us have also tbe general managers in
iheir reports to boards of directors.
At lie1 beginning <.f ihe presenl campaign, .1. A. Macdonald was disposed to
concede ihe taci anil to acoord ei.'siit
to the government tor at leasl n pun
or it.
Bul Mr. Mclnnis. who has no respect for the eonscienlioiis and Renlle-
mnnly scruples of hip nominal leader,
anil who, in his attack on the McHrlde
government, has evidently resolved���
as he would express 11���to "go till'
whole hOR." ds'iil.'s the fact and of
course denies any credit.
There Ib no use denying that Mr, Mclnnes made more Impression than Mr.
Mncdonald on the Ignorant, the stupid
nnd the unthinking. People who are
mentally weak are easily domintni'il liy
a loud voice and a shameless and confident demeanor, even though the matter addressed t" litem he transparent
falsehood and fallacy.
The Isbuo as to the fnct requires little comment. All the electors w-hn
have any Bensc at all. If they are not
themselves in a psssinon to observe
(he change, will certainly ncrepi the
unanimous testimony of disinteresleii
financial   men and  business  organiza
tions. Mr. Mclnnes' foolish contradiction may be left to answer itself.
Hut the reply of Liberals, who are
sane enough to concede the fact, ls
usually that the era of good times in
mining, lumbi'iing, agriculture and
business generally. Is only In a slight
measure due to the present administration, that it has proceeded partly as
e consequence of the general prosperity of the whole of North America, and
partly as the result of the rapid growth
of population on thc prairies, and the
consequent creation of new markets.
No one will deny that both those influence's have had their effect.
Hut the two togelher will not fully
explain It.
The last period of world depression
was In 181)1. Canada suffered less, by
common consent, than any other country. As early as 1895 the revival had*
hegiin In Eastern Canada and the
I'nfied Slates. In 1S00 1he "Full Din-
n r Pall" reelected the late President
McKinley, and In the same year "Ca-
nda's Growing Time" relurned Sir Wilfrid  Laurier and his party.
lint Hritish Columbia was still in th.
depths, and mutters grew steadily
worse, until In liion the credit of Hritish Columbia nt home anil abroad hnd
completely vanished. This province
bad not even nt lhat time experienced
any share In the returning prosperity
of 'the country and of the continent.
These are not campaign fictions.

Financial News. B. E. Walker, general
manager of the Canadian Hank of Commerce, and many more, is the respiration of confidence resulting from the
flshlevement after years of successive
and steadily growing deficits, of a hnl-

Another is the establishment of stable

provincial legislature. A third Is the

The sneaking half apology In this
morning's issue of The Daily News is
worse than the deliberate falsehood or
yesterday's attack on the editor of the
evening edition of The Dally Canadian.
The offender Is Mr. Victor W. Odium, late of Vancouver. His only Information on the subject of the Conservative nomination in Nelson wss
gained In private conversation, which
he asked should be confidential and
privileged. That information he has
maliciously distorted and falsified, and
has used as the basis of a personal attack.
Apart from his offence against newspaper ethics and etiquette, Mr. Odium
has betrayed Ignorance of the code observed among gentlemen.

With apology to the local Liberal
candidate for adopting his style of emphasizing a point, we respectfully submit the following as being peculiarly
applicable Io the Liberal "little" giant
who held forth In the opera house on
Monday evening. We refer to Mr. W,
W. B. Mclnnes, whose platitudes and
airy nothings afforded so much satisfaction to the local "faithful." The
story Is told of an old colored man In
Alabama, who by thrift had accumulated sufficient funds to defray thc
cost of his son's tuition at a negro college ln the state. When the boy returned artcr the completion of his
course, he proceeded to air his opinions on various subjects in a more or
less dlfftiBe and florid Btyle of speech.
One day the old man took him aside
and addressed him as follows: "William Thompson Jenkins. I'Be been list-
enltf to yo' seheral days, an' It's my
opinyun dat yo* talk an* talk. Yo*
doan' reach Into de stummlck of yo'
subjeck; but yo' jes argufy an' argufy.
Yo' doan 'locate, William Thompson
Jenkins; yo' doan' locate."
It Is remarkable how intimate a
knowledge some Liberals profess of
the private affairs of their opponents.
The Vancouver World claims to know
of a corrupt transaction, kept secret
of course, between Sir Adolphe Caron
and R. F. Green, with N. F. Mackay
acting as agent for the latter. Tho
World's claim Is a little remarkable ou
lhe face of It. But W. W. B. Mclnnes
���who is among politicians what tho
World ls aiming newspajiers���claimed
ln his address in this city knowledge
equally remarkable. He knew all
about many private Interviews hetwoen
the premier and F. W. Morse, he knew
what was said and dune at every cabinet council, nnd he knew what conversation paBsed between the premier
and Mr. Green at the time of the hitler's resignation. Mr. Mclnnes and
the World place a very low csti.nate
on the Intelligence of their hearers and
I'ntll an uuthoratltlve denial is obtained from R. F. Green and N. F.
Mackay, we forbear comment on the
latest discovery of the Vancouver
World. We would, however. In the
meanwhile, merely remark that that
paper was the author of the Pendray
lots slander, which was declared hy
Commissioner F. C. Peters to he entirely without foundation. The Vancouver World Is a disgrace to Canadian
journalism, and the fact that this remarkable story emanates from Its
sanctum discredits lt at the outset.
A story Is related of a new member
of the Kansas state legislature, who,
after listening to a long speech void of
either Interest or merit, arose, and ln

a nasal twang replied, as follows: "Mr.
Speaker. I have listened for the last
hour or hour and a half to the honor
able gentleman, not ihat what he saisl
was worth listening to. or the manner
in which he said it was interesting,bui
because I could not prevent my auricular organs from performing their natural functions within a reasonable dis
lance of a noise of that description, and
the longer I listened The more I waa
Irresistibly driven to the conclusion
that the honorable gentleman had
started his mouth agoing and had then
gone away and left it."' How many of
those who attended the opera house
and listened to W. W. B. Mclnnes on
Monday evening will be honest enough
t.i make the application?
While the Liberal leaders and their
special organ, the Vancouver World,
are wallowing in the mire ln their efforts to make up for the lack of a case
by plentiful mud-slinglng, it is a pleasure to recognize the fact that the party's eandlitate In Nelson, Dr. Hall, continues to keep his language clean and
cojnporl himself as a gentleman. But
the circumstance strengthens our conviction that the doctor's friends and
admirers���and we are among them���
should not force the doctor into a .position where he would be the associate
of s'anderers and blackmailers.
"Stirring oiatory antl convincing argument" Is a large expression for the
rhodomontade about himself thai Mr,
Willie Mclnnes delivered in Nelson
Monday night. We do not quarrel with
the expression. Perhaps there were
some people stir, ed and conv'nerd by
Willie. If so, we are very sorry fur

quite different.
Paris, Jan. 22.���The Kingston incident has attracted much attention in
France where the prompt assistance
rendered by the United States to the
sufferers from tlie Mount Pclee disaster in 1902 is remembered gratefully.
The general view here ls that Governor
Swettenham's rude operation from the
present showing is inexcusable, but re-
latlouB between Great Britain and tho
United States should not be disturbed
by the act of a single pompous and
tactlesss official.
London. Jan. 22.���The Pall Mall Gazette today gives prominence to a
statement which lt characterizes as extremely important pronouncement from
"a highly placed English official."
The statement Bays that a definite
official announcement relative to thc
Kingston Incident will probably await
the reassembling of parliament bo as
to afford Foreign Secreary Grey an opportunity of completely informing the
hotise and country.
Continuing, the statement makes a
detailed anaylsis ot Governor Swettenham's letter, diking tho ground thai bis
course was the usual and necessary
one when foreign troops Innd,-.! without previously securing the authority of
the government.
London. Jan. 22��� Tho text of Governor Swettenhnin's despatch received
undnled this morning bill presumably
filed January 20, Is as follows:
"Slight earthquake shocks continue.
Confidence Is restored. The population
is -returning and the weather Is fins'.
H. M. S. Indefatigable, with suppllse
from Trinidad, arrived here today, lloth
hanks have reopened."

The Summer Stock Company opened
their engagement last night at Sherman's opera house in "Mrs. Temple's
Telegram" and proved themselves to
be one of the best repertoire companies that have visited Nelson for some
time. One of the most noticeable features of the performance was thc absence of any waits between acts, so
common with the ordinary repertoire
companies. George H. Summers as the
butler proved himself to be a comedian
of no mean ability. Helene Warde as
Mrs. Frank Temple was seen to good
advantage and gave a good conception
of Ihe part. The balance of the company was equally good and should
m'ke themrelvcs favcr'tes with Nelson audiences before the conclusion of
their engagement. The vaudeville
turns were well received, especially
the musical turn of the Valpos. The
bill tonight will be "Because She Loved
Him So," a comedv in three acts bv
