Record ol One Session's
List of Resolutions Seeking Exposure
of Crime Voted Down by
Machine Majority. .
Ottawa, July 11.���A fair Idea of the
altitude of the two political parties on
questions of policy and administration
may be gathered by a brief study of the
votes taken in the House during the
last session. The following Is a partial
On the 10th of December, after the
people In the West had suffered great
hardships and when they were likely
to suffer more through tbe lack of fuel,
Mr. John Herron. Conservative member
for Alberta, moved a resolution dealing
with such conditions. Mr. Herron showed that there were abundant coal reserves In the West and that It would be
possible to guarantee to the people of
that country a regular and cheap supply
If the mines were not allowed to fall
Into the hands of monopolists. He
moved: "That coal lands owned by the
government of Canada should only be
alienated under such conditions and
subject to such regulations as will provide for Immediate supply of coal adequate at all times to the requirements
of the people, and at a reasonable price;
and that in respect of coal lands already
alienated legislative provision should be
made for such control and regulation In
emergencies aa will prevent loss and
suffering to the people of the West."
This motion was supported by opposition members but was headed off by
a government amendment declaring
that the recent troubles did not arise
from any defect In legislation. Though
this was not a proper amendment at all
It was adopted by a straight party majority of 77 to 39.
On January 9th Mr. Borden submitted
a resolution expressing the opinion that
legislation should be adopted for the
prevention and settlement of labor disputes and asking for a select committee
of nine to inquire into the whole question and report what further enactments are desirable and necessary.
This motion was opposed by the government and was finally shelved by a
ministerial amendment stating that existing legislation with certain proposed
amendments was all that was necessary.
The amendment was adopted on a party
division of 78  to 40.
On February 5th and 7th the House
debated a resolution moved by Mr. McCarthy of Calgary condemning the deal
by which a block of 380.000 acres of government land was sold to a group of
party favorlties at $1 an acre, with Irrigation conditions, which concession was
Immediately transferred to English capitalists at a straight profit of half a million dollars to the piomo.ors before they
bad paid a cent for the property. In
the same sale the favorlties turned over
another land concession at a profit of
$350,000, selling for $12 an acre a land
grant Just obtained from the government nt $1 per acre. The government
party by a majority of 86 to 63 voted
down Mr. McCarthy's motion and endorsed the deal.
February 21st Mr. Herron moved a
resolution condemning the above trans-
tion. One llrown applied for a closed
twenty-one year grazing lease of 00,000
acres of land early In 1902. llrown disappeared without taking the lease or
paying the rental and all the departmental letters to him were unanswered.
Contrary to the law and the advice of
officials tho conceBBlon was hold for
this unknown and undlscoverublo iicr-
Bon for some two yenrs. Then It was
round that a member of parliament had
been carrying round au assignment
from him nearly the whole period. This
government supportor came forward
when the lease was about to be cancelled, was allowed to take over tho
land, under an Irrevocable tenure, a
privilege that had been long previously
repealed, and was forgiven all the back
rent. Thereupon he Immediately Bold
out his concession to a genuine cattle
man for some $20,000. His only investment was $650. This deal wan endorsed
by n straight party vote of 80 to 49.
February 28th Mr. llorden proposed a
motion protesting against the practice
of delaying Iho judicial appointments,
thus impairing the efficiency of the
courts nnd Impeding the course of Justice. Among the vacancies to which
he referred was one which had existed
for a year on the Nova Scotia bench,
and had caused numerous postponements of trials and appeals, while the appointment was held to meet party convenience. Mr. Borden's motion was defeated by a party vote of 83 to 50.
On March 5th Mr. Northrup, of East
Hustings, brought up the case of an
Immigration commissioner at Winnipeg,
salary $3000, who had carried through
a land deal, giving him some $30,000
profit and had been sued successfully
on the claim that he had deceived the
purchasers. In his own testimony at
this hearing the officer confessed that
he had hade use of the services and reports of other government officers in
order that he himself "might make
money on tbe side." One of these reports received by the commissioner officially had been carried oft" bodily by the
land customers leaving no copy In the
office. On a straight party vote the
conduct of this officer was endorsed by
a government majority of 94 to 54.
On March 20th Mr. Borden moved a
resolution authorising further Inquiry
by the public accounts committee into
a claim presented to the government
and accepted by the railway department for alleged expenditure of the company on the G. ���. P. line. A part of
tlii.s claim, amounting to $160,000 was
disallowed by Mr. Shannon, government
auditor on the ground that the payments
were for promotion Expenses and not
expenditure on construction. As to
other portions amounting tu some $50,-
000 the auditor objected that no details
or vouchers were given. When investigation of these accounts became necessary the company, rather than have
them examined, withdrew the claim, and
the government took from the public
file* aU the documents relating thereto
and gave them bach to the company.
Under these Buspiotous circumstances
the Conservatives In the public accounts
committee undertook to ascertain the
particulars of this expenditure, asking
for the return of the accounts and calling the Grand Trunk auditor as a witness. Ministers snd their supporters
in the committee refused to ask for tbe
accounts and the Grand Trunk auditor
disregarded the summons and immediately sailed for Europe.
Mr. Barker, thereupon moved that the
House order an Inquiry into the facts
and Investigate the disappearance of
the official records which had been carried away. The House by a straight
party majority of 114 to 49 voted down
this motion.
It is supposed that a large part ot this
secret expenditure was connected with
the lobby and promotion of the O. T. P.
Lacrosse Gossip.

Austiu, Tex., July 11.���Laws that are
calculated to turn things in the Lone
Star state more or less topsy-turvey for
the time being will come into operation
at midnight tonight.
The new law of which the country has probably heard the most is the
Robertson Act, which requires foreign
Insurance companies doing business in
Texas to deposit 75 per cent, of the
reserves on Texas business in stale depositories. It also requires a tax of
1 per cent, on gross premiums collected. As a result of this law two-thirds
of the big Insurance companies doing
business in Texas have already withdrawn from the state und the rest will
probably do likewise before Dec. 31st,
on which date the first Investment and
deposit required by the law must be

or less radical nature and have attracted widespread attention. One of
these is an anti-pass law and another

hotels, sleeping cars and. o'her places
for the accommodation of the travelling
public shall furnish top sheets not less
than nine feet In length and provides a

The new law for the regulation of the
liquor traffic, known as the Basktn- McGregor Act, requires every liquor dealer
In the state, whether wholesale or re-
tall, to take out a new license. The new
licenses are to be issued only to persons of good character, who have resided for more than two years in the
county where the application is made,
who have never had a license revoked
or forfeited ana -wtio \.o.ve neTcr been
convicted of a felony.
The anti-pass law practically revokes
' the free railroad pass system throughout Texas. Even the state railroad
commissions will have to pay railroad
fare, as the new law cuts off all passes
for the commissioners and employees
of that body. All of the railroads of
the state have sent out requests to holders of annual passes and mileage asking that such transportation he returned
to the general office for cancellation.

President of Federation
on the Stand
State and Defence Both Claim Points
From His Evidence���Guessing
on Length of Trial
Boise, July 11.���Charles Moyer. tlie
prisoner president of the Western Federation of Miners, will take the stand
again today for cross-examination by
the state in the Haywood trial. It is
not likely that this feature of the case
will occupy much time, as counsel for
the prosecution states that their examination will be brief. Moyer has told
a straight story and the impression he
created was favorable In the extreme.
The position of the prosecution, however, is that Moyer has made an Impression sufficient to show that their
claims of intimacy between Orchard
and Haywood Is well founded. It. is
probable that Fred Miller will go on
the stand after Moyer, but the defence
may again pass him until Haywood has
been heard. Haywood's direct and
cross-examination may take the remainder of the week though it Is now
possible that the defence may close
Friday night.
London. July fl.���An Italian nobleman, Marchese Vlncenzo Peruzzi, the
present representative ot the Peruxxi
family, of Florence, Is collecting data
In support of a claim of his family to
a sum of some fifty millions pounds
from the Urlti-b governptcnt. rr>ie marchese is at present in London. The
claim is in respect for a sum of ��2.400-
000, plus interest, for loans granted by
some of the ancestors of the Peruzzi
family to Edwardl.. II., and III. The
Peruzzis owned the historical bank ot
that name. Its head office was in Florence, where the Peruxxi Palace Is still
shown to visitors. It is recorded that
at the time of the three first Edwards
and subsequently the Florentine, Genoese, and Lombard financiers played a
very Important part In the monetary
transactions of the world, and the Permits were considered one of the
wealthiest and most influential, and
held a position similar to that of the
Rothschilds of our times.
During the thirteenth and fourteenth
centuries the popes found It necessary
to appoint agents in England for the
collection of the papal dues, and the
Peruzzis were nominated for that purpose.
That fact brought the members of
the bank into contact with the King
and the British court. After the war
with France, King Edward III. found
himself in financial stains, and it was
probably at this period that he made
serious encroachments on the well-supplied coffers of the Florentine bank in
The Italian historian, Giovanni VII-
lanl, mentions the Peruzzi transaction,
and he also records the panic with
which the financial world of that time
was seized when King Edward II., on
May 6, 1339, issued a royal proclamation ordering the suspension of the repayment of loans granted to the State,
not excluding those contracted with his
Florentine friends, the Peruzzis.
The head of the bank was In Florence at the time, and as soon as he
heard of^the drastic royal measure he
left for London, where all his efforts
to settle matters proved of no avail,
and he Boon after died broken-hearted
In the English metropolis.
The Peruzzi bank was obliged to declare Itself Insolvent, and all Its property was aold.
The present representative of tho
family Is fully conscious of the difficulties of substantiating a claim of this
kind, not least among them the Statute
of Limitations, which might possibly bar
his rights, although he maintains that
during successive generations his family have been more or less punctual in reminding the British government ot what
was duo to Ihem. When King Edward
VII came to Rome tn May. 1903, Marchese Peruzzi wrote to His Majesty
about the claim.
Supposing that tho claim were admitted. My Lords of the Treasury would
have to draw out In favor of the legitimate representative of the Peruzzi family an order for the alarming figure of
��54,624,000. capital and simple Interest at I per cent., reckoned on the
basis of 569 years.

Thursday,   July   11th,  1907.
According to the last announcement,
which was his own cabled reply to an
inquiry from the committee ftt Quebec
which is preparing a public reception
for him, Sir Wilfrid Bails tor Canada
tomorrow. The first week after hits arrival will probably be spent receiving
loyal add reuses from It in followers In
Quebec, Montreal and Ottawa* The ad
dresses must of course he couched in
very general terms. Even the most enthusiastic Liberals cannot, seriously
credit Sir Wilfrid with any achieve
muni during his present trip to Ehirope,
It is hardly likely thu! they will offer
him any praise for his policy of Inactivity at. the imperial Conference, and
to laud his advocacy of the Aii-Hcd
Route would guggeet regret thut he al
lowed a better scheme with the sum*
object to lapse eleven years ago after
all arrangements had been made be
tween the Dominion government and a
responsible company.
Sir Wilfrid has been premier of
Canada for eleven years, leader of the
party for eighteen years, and a member of the parliament for 88 years.
Does his career show any consistent
purpose on tin; fulfilment of which bis
followers can honestly offer congratuhi
tlons? A reference to Free Trade
would be a cruel reminder that after
eleven years of power Sir Wilfrid still
allows "the iniquitous system of protection" to flourish in all Its verdure.
Provincial rights would BUggesi Inevitably" the autonomy bills for Saakatohe
wan und Alberta which the Liberal
governments of those two provinces
are setting themselves to remedy as fu:
us possible. Civil service reform would
only awaken thoughts of W. T. II, Prcs-
tion and his partners, and electoral purl
ty would recall Mr. Hyman's orgy in
London,    There is not one of Sir Wil
frid's early cherished ideals to which
his followers can refer without being
cruel. Ii would be most ungracious of
them to remind him on his home coming
that be has broken every promise he
has made to the country, and butrayed
every cause he once advocated.
However, the receptions will be held,
addresses of some kind will be presented, and Sir Wilfrid will reply in those
felicitous, meaningless speeches, at the
making of which he is un acknowledged
After thnt Sir Wilfrid has work to do.
According to Mr. Emmerson, his first
task will be to decide whether that
genl leman'B demurrer to the cluiin of
tbe editor of the Gleaner that his
charges were true, and published In the
public interest, constitutes sufficient
vindication of his character to justify
his return to the cabinet. Of Sir Wilfrid's decision on that point there can
be little doubt.
Hut he hub two vacant departments.
both of which should, in the interest of
efficient administration, he promptly
filled. For the vacancies he has a host
of aspirants, most of them comparatively well known, and none with any special qualification of character or ability.
Sir Will rid has to make choice of two
of thorn or uguin go outside of parliament for stronger men. His last expert*
ment can hardly Incline him favorably
to the latter course. Mr. Aylesworth
developed some popularity with the
rank and file of his own party, but his
short   public career has only served  to
damage Irreparably his own reputation
Without strengthening the government
in the House of Commons or in the esteem of the country.
It is true that Sir Wilfrid returns to a
Canada still prosperous, so far as Increased production and high prices constitute prosperity. That condition baa
been the salvation of the Liberal government. "Good times*' is the only avail:
able answer to the proved charges of
maladministration  and   corruption.
Hut the past  few months have tthown
thut the moral sense of Canada is not
wholly blunted by the gencrul success
of commerce und industry. Public protests againsl dishonesty und immorality
iu high planes have been so numerous.
so vigorous and so evidently sincere
that Sir Wilfrid cannot Ignore them. He
must make some show of endeavoring
to cleanse parliament and the civil service which under his regime have sunk
to depths unknown before lu Canadian
public  life.
Cnioitunately for Sir Wilfrid corruption has become an essential part of the
system by which he holds power, it
is doubtful if any effort of his, however
sincere, could Induce his colleagues and
followers to abolish the Machine. Nothing cun be gained by dropping ministers
one by one as their misdeeds become
public. The root of the evil is the Machine itself. An organization that ex
ists for the sole purpose of corrupting
the electorate cannot reasonably be expected to produce clean and capable
public men.
The great decision that Sir Wilfrid
has m make is whether to obey the gen
era! and earnest demand for clean men
and clean methods, or to ignore it and
trust still to the Machine for power
Our esteemed Contemporary suggests
thut it is the duty of some public body
In Nelson to extend a very cordial invitation to the party of British journal
ists who will visit Nelson during July
and August. We cordially agree. No
class of visitors to a city can do so
much to make its attractions and advantages known to the public as representative journalists. An invitation should
certainly be extended and no effort
should be spared to ensure its acceptance. But the board of trade is hardly
the proper body to fulfil that duty. The
80,000 Club exists for the very purpose
of advertising Nelaon and especially by
attracting visitors. There is a special
committee of the 80,000 Club formed for
the ��ole purpose of anticipating such
duties and attending to their performance. That committee consists of:
F. J, Deane, chairman, Harry Wright
and E. K. Beeston. We are credibly informed that no meeting of that committee has ever been held. The explanation is of course Mr. Deane's unfortunate absence from the city. While we
entirely ugree with our contemporary
us to the expediency of extending an invitation to the British newspaper men,
and ns to the obvious advantages to be
derived from it, we cannot too strongly
deprecate and condemn our contemporary's attack upon Mr. Deane for alleged neglect of duty while he is absent
from the city and cannot defend himself.
The Japanese war-cloud, which was at
first thought ridiculous by many, is
rapidly beooming the absorbing topic of
conversation, public and private. The
despatches from London yesterday contained an article from the Daily Telegraph pointing out that the issue is not
racial but economic. That is undoubtedly correct. It is only on the Pacific
coast that there is any pretence of holding the Japanese in contempt. Still
economic questions alone would not
cause a rupture at the present time.
The Japanese will not accept a position
Of inferiority. President Roosevelt is
quite willing to accord them equality.
The source of danger is iu the rights
miner nip tmmmwa*wn% txmsLiiunon of a
sovereign state. Even the federal government cannot compel one of the constituent states to comply with the terms
of the nation's treaties. It is not Inconceivable that the obstinacy of California may involve the whole country in
a war which would for a while, at leust,
destroy commerce on the Pacific. The
citizens of all civilized countries hope
that  a conflict   may he averted.
Reduced Postage.
Ottawa, July ]i.���The reduction In
the rate of postage on British publications corning into Canudu has had the
immediate result of having more than
doubled the volume of the mall from
Great Britain The reduced rate became effective at the beginning of April,
and from thut time until the end of
June 4250 bags of British mull were re-
cHvi'ti at  Montreal   During the same
month last year there were only B008
bugs of mall received. The increase is
1660 bags, or B0 per cent.

The School Trouble.
Editor,  The   Dally  Canadian:
An editorial  in the Dally  News or to
day purports to deal judicially With tin-
rather  stupid   tangle'      between     the
council   und   the  school   trustees
Would it not be just as well while
about it for the editor to cut deeper
and to say to the genl lemen ol the
council that they would better drop
quietly out of an untenable position ami
lea vi- the trustees to discharge their
duties in their own way and upon their
iwn  repsonaihllity?
The ������special committee of the council" never had any standing in the meet
Ing except such as might have been accorded to any deputation of citizens who
desired information before voting on
the loan bylaw.
The powers given to school trustees
by statute are such us have caused
many municipal councils to gasp with
astonishment, but the safety of the people obviously consists in the exercising of the same care in the election of
trustees that they bestow upon elections
to the council.
The rate payers of Nelson are In a
position to say that they have done
this���that the school board Is as good
as the council, and not iu greater need
of the check of extraneous Influence.

the United States if the American government reserves the right to insert a
clause in the compact excluding Japanese coolie labor from continental
United States is indicated l��y semi-official advices purporting to give the views
of Foreign Minister liayashl, which
were received here today from Ototaku
Yamooku. the personal representative
of Count Okuma, leader of the Progressive party.
Mr. Yamaoka, who visited the United
States in April and perfected an alliance with the Japanese of the Pacific
coast to bring about the overthrow of
the Saonji ministry and the annulment
of the exclusion clause in the immigration bill, is authority for the statement
that Foreign Minister Hayashi has received from United States Secretary
Hoot a preliminary "note" regarding
the new treaty, which the two govern-
mentB propose to substitute for the convention which will expire July 17, 1907.
The draft of the new treaty submitted
by Secretary Root according to the communication from Yamaoka called for a
renewal of article 2, clause 4 of the
preaent treaty, which gives to each nation the right to regulate immigration.
With reference to the "note" submitted
by Secretary Root, Mr. Yamaoka says
that Foreign Minister Hayashi has issued an official confidential memorandum outlining the Japanese government's attitude on   the question  of  1m-

migration, which in substance is as follows:
First���That the government of the
United Slates has submitted a proposal
for the enactment of a treaty, which
provides for the limitation of immigration. The government of Japan has rejected tbe proposal and will not in the
future entertain any such proposition.
Second���That in the new treaty
which is to be operated from tlie forty-
fourth year of Meiji U99*) the government of Japan will insist on striking out
article 2, clause 4 (defining the power
reserved hy tbe contracting parties to
enact laws with regard to police and
immigration regulations.) For that purpose the government of Japan shall take
a most vigorous attitude.
Although the negotiations for that end
are not yet developed, we (irmly believe
that the government ot. the United
States wilt tight with determination to
preserve this clause.
Third���That the government of Japan
contemplates sending representatives to
the United States to investigate conditions on the Pacific coast and to determine if the Japanese residents are
discriminated against.
Mr. Yamaoka, it is said, has sent
copies of Foreign Minister llayashi's
confidential memorandum to the Japanese societies of San Francisco and
Seattle, and to correspondents of Japanese newspapers in the United States.
Dr. Majusi Miyakawa, the Japanese
lawyer, admitted that he had seen a
copy of the-communication which is being distributed by Yamaoka and characterized the attitude of Foreign Minister
Hayashi as a concession to the. Progressives, who have strongly opposed the
clause iu the immigration bill excluding
coolie labor from the United States.

Lawn Socials.
This is the season of garden parties.
The ladies of St. Paul's church held a
very1 successful social on the Manse
grounds lust evening. The Jadies of
the Church of MRry Immaculate are giving one on Kev, Futher Althoff's lawn
tomorrow afternoon and evening, and
the choir guild of St. Saviour's announce one for next Wednesday afternoon and evening.
The   Hooligan   Nuisance.
Those in charge of the lawn social at
the Manse last night offer a warning to
others contemplating the giving of similar functions to make special arrangements wi^h the police beforehand. The
event last night was marred by the intrusion of street Arabs of ages ranging
from 6 or 7 to 18 or 19. The parents
of the juvenile ruffians are to blame for
a large part of the nuisance. For the
oidev degenerates probably ihe only adequate punishment Is imprisonment and
City  Police Court.
Police Magistrate Crease had two peculiar cases to consider this morning.
Harry Noble pleaded guilty to having
forged an order of 0. H. Crandon,
C. P. R. trainmaster, upon J. O. Pate
naude for a standard watch, which he
afterwards pawned. Noble was arrested
for drunkenness hy Chief Jarvis, but let
go as soon as he seemed capable
of taking care of himself. The chief
noticed that he had a chain but no
watch, and traced his dealings. He was
runu��rnjed till tomorrow for sentence.
Tho other urisoner was John Nelson, a
Swede to whom the V. V & K. Railway \
company paid $25 a month for over a
year for injuries. The company was
released from further payments at the
spring assizes. Nelson blames Dr. Hall.

Caverns  Under   Minneapolis.
Minneapolis, July 11.���Minneapolis is
built qvor a series of natural subterranean streams ami lake which have
formed great caverns in the sandstone
under the business portion of the city.
The fact ha* been known by the city
engineering department for six years
and was not made public until yesterday noon, when the linal work of putting In the concrete pillars for the Bafo
ty of the big oilice building was completed. Andrew liluker, tho city engineer, announced the fact yesterday,
but said that there had never existed
any real danger lhat the caverns,
which are from 80 lo 150 foot below
the surface of the st reets, would have
given away, but the city council has,
under pledges of secrecy, appropriated
money for the const motion of concrete
supports which Insures the safely of the
city for all lime lo como.
The caverns are of considerable extent, being located between Fourth avenue north and Bightta avenue south between Sixth and I ���nrih streets. The
largest cavern la.half an acre In extent
and they range from six to 22 feet In
height. Beautifully hewn out or the
sandstone by the action of the count..
lesB ages of percolating waters, the caverns present a wonderful picture. At
one place In Ihe network of caverns a
spring of clear water forms a stream
which tumbles over a beautiful underground waterfall fully 20 feet In height.
The floor of one ol the large caverns Is
as smooth as a ballroom.
