Winnipeg, July i7_The weather for
ihe past week has not been so favorable
to the growth of the crops as the previous. Fortunately lhe hot, damp days
were not general over the Canadian
wesl, for If they had heen no douhl serious damage from rust would have re*
sulled. As It is, the Free Press is able
to say, afler checking all the Information available, lhat, considering there

the best lhe country has ever had. and
the crop Is at least ten days earlier

St. Petersburg, July 17.���-The emperor last night approved ilu* bill of the
lower house of parliament, which was
adopted by the upper house, appropriating $7,500,000 for famine relief, thus
support ing the contention of both
houses of parliament against his own
ministers, This law is the flrsl enact*
ment Of the Russian parliament, and
n presents the net legal result of a session of over two months.
The papers today say that the authorities at Peterhof nre again asking

leader of the conservative center party,
to renew their attempts to Induce the
constitutional democrats to enter a coalition cabinet The agrarian committee of Ihe lower house of parliament
has completed the draft of an appeal
to ihe country to counteract the effect

Wolf  in  Sheep's Clothing.
Toronto. July 17.���"The steamer on
which your husband is coming back to
the cily has been blown up.'"
This was Ihe startling announcement
a man dressed as a Salvation Army soldier made to Mrs. George McKetrick,
LAsgar Btreet, shortly after 7 o'clock
lhe other evening. With a cry of distress lhe wife hurried oul, leaving the
house open, and rushed to the nearest
telephone OfflCO; She spoke to the office at the dock here, and used the long
distance to reach lhe place from which
lhe steamer had started. The heartless
canard proved to be a lie. When she
returned home she found lhat $2S in
bills were missing, aud there was no
trace of the man In uniform who had
told the slory. Mrs. McFetrlch belongs
io the Salvation Army herself, aud
gave credence to the man's statement
OU this account, although he was uu*
known lo her.

Lloyd, archdeacon of the diocese,   of
Saskatchewan, was In this city yesterday arranging with the authorities for

Kaslo vs.   Kuskanook.
A letter has heen handed to ihis office by one Interested In the conlrover-
sy over the relative speed abilities of
the Kuskanook, tho new C. P. R. steamer, nnd the older and popular favorite
Of the Q. N. U.. the Kaslo. The letter is
too long for Ihese columns, hut the following va'cy sentences show Ilm genius
of the writer:
"Editor Canadian���Sir:     Some  daya
ugo a Statement appeared iu a morning
paper regarding lhe wonderful speed of
ihe O.'P. It. torpedo boat destroyer
Kuskanook, and Ihe terrible healing Ihe
Kaslo received from lhe said T. B. D.
Such a gross misrepresentation of the
facts brands Ihe News' correspondent
as having a reckless disregard of the
truth. Giving him rope enough, he haw
hung himself, He pins his faith to the
linker slreet nautical experts, who may
possibly know the difference between
a steamboai and a typewriter, When
a founlnln pen pusher poses as a marine expert, il Is time steamboat men
took a correspondence course In bookkeeping. Ihereby qualifying for navlga-
lion experts."
The letter goes on to explain how the
Kaslo. In Ilie recent race, was laken
unawares wiih dirty grates nnd bad
coal, as well as other handicaps well
known to steamboai men, and It also
asserts that lhe Kuskanook did nol
give any warning lhat a speed contest
was lo be made. While nol actually issuing a challenge, il states that Ihe officers of the 0. V. R. sleamer know belter than to go up agalnsi the Kaslo in a
fair race, and Is confident that if sucli
were done ihe laurels would be carried
off by Ihe tl, X. R. sleamer. The matter
is one of great public interest, and this
paper suggests that the Twenty Thousand Club arrange for a race beiween
these :wo monqEers of the deep, and
lhat lhe question of "race supremacy"
he sellled once and forever lo Ihe peace
and quietness of ihe community.

gresH of suelaHsI inter-parliamentary
committees opened here loduy under
the presidency of James Keir Hardy,
the socialist member of parliament and
fhairman of the independent labor party. The first action of the congress
was to expel the newspaper men present, the foreign delegates feeling lhat
detailed reports of the proceedings
would hring them unpleasantly to the
notice of their governments. The attendance was not large. The European
continent was represented hy aboul 25
delegates, Including a member of the
Russian parliament. Several women

Peculiar Accident.
D, White, nf hadysinlth, who has returned from the north, says In an interview with the Uuiysmlth Ledger that
on his way ont of the Mount MeKlnley
district he met the Cook party. Professor Cook, it will be remembered, is
at the head of the party which left
Seattle with the jntentton of scaling
Mount MeKlnley, if possible, for scientific purposes. At the time he was met
hy Mr. White he was in very poor luck.
He had lost four horses under most peculiar circumstances. The accident occurred at Squanta river, in the vicinity
of Cook's Inlet. The horses, which
were loaded with pacfts, suddenly disappeared from sight, nnd it was afterwards ascertained that they had fallen
through the earth into what is supposed
to be a burning coal vein. The horses
aud packs were lost. Professor Cook
also lost four horses at Tynook river,
which left him only 12 ont of the original 20. Mr. White is of the opinion that
the expedition will be a failure, as it is,
he stated, an impossibility to make the
Former President's Friend.
Rtionos Ayres, July 17.���Dr.    Carlos
1'eiligrini, former president of ArgenU
na, died last night.
President of Board of Trade on C. E
McPherson's   Counsel  of
B\ A. Starkey, president of thu
board of trade, returned lo the city
from Rossland Jaal night. Seen this
morning in regard lo the vIowb on lho
question of a mnrist hotel near Nelson,
expressed by C. 0, Mel'herson, of the
C. P. R. company, he said:
"We know perfectly well lhat the
Strathcona and Hume are good hotels.
We'ro proud of them. But that Is not
to the point. We require a tourist hotel
out of the city at some good'point on
Ihe Wesl Ann, or on the'mnln lake.
"Tourists don't want to stay in town;
ihey want fresh breezes and shade.
They may or may not want to tlsh, bul
they all wanl to be close to a shore.
"Now. the Strathcona and the Hume
are excellent as city hotels; of their
class there are none belter in the west,
but they are not tourist hotels, and
they are both well filled most, of tho
time. They can nnd do accommodate
the transient travel through Nelson,
which is very considerable, but they
could not accommodate In addition nny
large party oi* tourists who wished to
stay any length of time.
"For such people wo have only the
Outlet hotel at Procter, which is small
and not, as luxurious as tourists like,
and two houseboats, which are expen
sive for small parties and inadequate
for large parties.
"We are all pleased to learn that the
C. P. R. eompuny is routing passengers
through Nelson and giving reduced
rates. This is the first year they have
done that. We are aware, too, that the
passenger service has been greatly Improved by the addition of the steamer
Kuskanook, and we are grateful for
"But still we are not getting our
share. We are doing far more for the
C. P. R. than they do for us. The people of Nelson are constantly subscribing to provide attractions to bring people here, and thereby making traffic for
the railway company. Surely we are
entitled to something in return.
"It Ib easy for Mr. McPherson to
preach patience, and tell us that it
takes time to do these things. But i'
takes more than time���it takes effort.
"C. P. R. officials have always admitted that they were not bringing tourists
through Nelson, and gave as their reason the fact that there was no accommodation for them. Now Mr. McPherson replies to a suggestion that new
accommodation should be provided hy
telling us that our hotels are good
enough, and that we must wait till the
population Increases. It is Increasing
fast, but we can hasten the growth by
offering better attractions to tourists
than we have at present, and. with or
withoul the C. P. R. company's assistance or encouragement, we are going
to try."
Sunday Picnic Ends in a Shooting Affray.
Montreal, July 17.���Two men were

was attacked hy Mqrnettl and his
friends, aud after receiving several

falling to the floor from a blow on the
head, he drew his revolver and fired In
self-defence. None of the wounds are
serious. Primrose was arrested and
locked up for the night.

Justice Martin's Decision Upheld���Th��
Lumber Company's Appeal
An Important judgment was delivered
by the appeal court of the province yesterday. The appeal of John Hanbury,
of the North Star Lumber Company,
against Justice Martin's award of (2,000
and costs to W. Rich, was dismissed
with ousts.
The ease was tried at Nelson December 5th and 6th, 1905, S. S. Taylor,
K. C, appearing for tne plaintiff, and
W. A. Macdonald, K. C��� and W. F.
Uurd for the defendant.
William Rich, a boy of 19, was ln the
employ of the company at Elko. A new
stack, weighing 3,500 pounds, was to be
raised. The gin pole was cut too short.
The stack had to be gripped below the
middle, and two boys, Rich and another, were placed on It to balance it. As
the stack was swinging to the perpendicular, the chain broke, and the sharp
edge of the end of the stack descended
on Rich's foot, severing It. The chain
had been too short, and a small piece
of thin chain had been added, but It
was the main chain that broke.
The defence was that the foreman,
Richards, used reasonable care ln selecting the chain.
On cross-examination Richards admitted that he did not test the chain before use, and Hough, another witness,
said he had urged Richards to wait until he got a new chain from Fernie.
It was shown that Richards was an
experienced foreman, and that he had
used the chain many times without mishap, and was justified In thinking it
S. S. Taylor contended that for a
task Involving danger, a special test
should have heen made, and that the
task should not have been attempted
with gin pole and chain both too short.
The Issue was clear: What degree of
care must an experienced foreman ex
erclse to absolve his empldyer?
Tue case was tried without a jury.
Justice Martin gave judgment for the
plaintiff for (2,000 and coBts.
Appeal to the full court was taken,
and the result was watched with Interest oy the Lumbermen's Association,
every member being vitally interested
in the decision.
The nppeal was argued In April by
S. S. Taylor and E. P. Davis before
Chief Justice Hunter and Justices Irving nnd Duff. Judgment wus handed
down yesterday dismissing the nppen!
witi. costs.

(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Victoria, July 17.���News to the effect
that negotiations were In progress for
a new modus vlvendl regarding pelagic
sealing, whereby a cessation of the Industry is proposed, attracted considerable Interest ln Victoria, as was natural,
considering the fact that this city is tbe
greatest pelagic sealing depot ln the
world. Some of those Interested ln the
sealing Industry said yesterday tbat
they had been expecting such an arrangement tn view ot the rumors that
ban reached this city of proposals for
a readjustment of differences existing
between Canada and the United States
in this matter.
The speech made by Earl Gray, the
Canadian governor-general, when at
New York some time ago, was also taken by those Interested in pelagic sealing as an indication of an arrangement

A prominent member of the Victoria
Sealing Company Bald Cat he had no
doubt that the arrangement would be
made In the near future, but no Information had been given to the sealing
interests, nor had the men Interested
ln the industry been communicated
with In any way. He said that while
he does not expect that the sealing Interests would be considered in the
forming of a treaty between Great Britain and the United States, ln this matter the government of Canada would ot
course be cognisant of the arrangement, nnd should fully inform the sealers of any contemplated change, so
that they might not go to great expense In preparation for future sealing

���' Hy one wota we are Botnetimei j idged to tu
win and by one word sometlmei judged t'�� be
tuniitfii. Ijji us therefore be careful whal we
���We huve po fused whh tbe greatest
Interest the reporl of the officers of the
British Columbia board ot trade al Victoria in their annual address to tbo
members of thai body. The address is
an exhaustive one, and while it contains matter that is of particular Interest to the cousi localities, it Is, on the
whole, much more general in Its scope,
and should make profitable reading foi
nny British Columbian Into whose
hands it may fall. The time was, unci
not long since, when the Vancouver
board of trade expressed its Indignation that the Victoria merchants should
arrogate to themselves the name bj
which they designate their association,
but in the expanded references made
In the report referred to, there is some
justification for the assumption thai tbe
interests of the whole province are being considered. In any case the time
has gone by when any single sect ion
of the community can afford to be indifferent to the interests of the province as a whole, while each Individual
board will huve as its .chief interest
the affairs of the locality in which it
exists, a broad and genera) recognition
of lhe advancement of other parts of
the country and the relation which may
rightly and wisely exist between the
widely separated sections will help to
unify the trade interests that are com
inon to all parts of Hritish Columbia.
Tbe address has additional interest
because of jik suggestion of possibilities
for Hritish Columbia which huve not
yet received general recognition, and
the full extent of whai may lie in store
for this western "sea of mountains" has
perhaps not yet suggested Itself to the
average citizen. As Instances of what
we mean by this, we quote the follow-
Jug excerpt:
"As a result of investigations recently
bade by expert vilif niturisis, certain
districts tributary Lo Victoria have been
pronounced capable ot producing grapes
on a large scale. It has also been discovered thai the climate is very favorable to the breeding of silk worms, and
a company is now being financed in
London With the object of embarking
In the production of raw Bilk. The fact
that Smyrna figs were found growing
Wild near Xannimo encourages the hope
that the mulberry and grape win nourish with cultivation, and tbal two new
and important Industries are on the eve
of being established."
If the coast Climate is congenial to
the cultivation of silk worms, that of
the Interior should be much more so,
and thus a new industry is among the
latent possibilities of these vast areas.
As a further Illustration of the progress which is being made by the principle of provincial ownership of public
utillUes, the reporl has the following
"That in case of the building of u
bridge at Seymour Narrows or elsewhere connecting the mainland of Hritish Columbia With the Island of Vancouver, such bridge and the approaches
thereto, and the land on both sides of
the water running back from same,
such distance as may be deemed reasonably necessary to allow of free ac
cess thereto, be owned and controlled
by the government of Canada, with
the view of according equal rights on
and over such bridge and its approach
es lo all railways desiring to use it."
Victoria is notoriously hide-bound ou
general questions of political advance
or reform, and to have such a recommendation is only another evidence that
the principle is bound sooner or later
to be forced into an issue in political
economy in the province of which we
are a part.
There is still another clause in the
report which challenges public attention, and Is the more forceful jn its set
ting, in as much as a board of trade is
not ii political organization, but a strict
ly business association. The question
oi' tariff readjustment will not down apparently, and the disabilities under
which some of the B. C. Industries arc
laboring at the present time is illustrated in the declaration of that board:
"Shipbuilding being a matter of na
tional importance, the presence of the
royal commission on transportation was
availed to represent the disabilities under which that Industry is carried on in
Canada. In brief, the case was stated
as   follows;
" The inconsistency of the position in
which our shipbuilders are placed lies
in the fact lhat a ship can be imported
free of duty, hull, machinery and everything else, with all the labor applied on
her being old country labor, while our
builders have to pay duty on most of
tho raw materials they use, as well as
a heavy duty on the machinery which
they may Import, amounting lo 27) per
A recommendation was forwarded to
the Dominion government upon this
question, and it. only remains to be
seen how the matter will he dealt with
by the authorities there.
The report coniulns many other interesting features, and should be printed in pamphlet form for handy refer
ence and for general circulation.
A timely stricture on the unquestionable prejudice of W. J. Bryan, aspirant
for the presidency of the Uniled Stales
on the Democratic ticket, will appeal
to  the average  British  subject.
Not a few of those who have been
reading the comments of Mr. Bryan,
now on a tour round the world, which
have for some time past lieen appearing weekly iu a number of United
States newspapers, have observed and
wondered at the strong animus which
they have perpetually manifested towards Croat Britain and her methods
Of government iu the various colonies
visited by him. That animus culminated in a violent outbreak of bad temper and violent language when he went
to India and wrote of the British methods of government "there. He found
everything wrong. In the course of his
travels he arrived in Egypt. Every
traveller except himself who has been
in a positiou to contrast the condition
of things there some twenty-five years
ago with that of today���how Lord Cromer, the agent and consul-general of
Great Britain, haH during that time
given the fellaheen a recognized position before the courts of the country���a
thing which they had not previously,
made them, In fact, free men; how he
has reduced taxation In Egypt by ah
most one-half, and while doing so has,
oul of tlie revenues of the country,
made rouds und railways through II
with consequenlly better transportation
I'ijeflilies for both people and products;
has huilt dams, Including the great
Assouan dam, for storing the waters of
the Nile and enabling them to he utilized when needed for Irrigation; how
he has placed her finances, previously
In a very bad state, accrued Interest on
her debt having heen unpaid for years,
In a most healthy condition; has given
greatly increased educational facilities
to her people���has each and all borne
willing testimony lo the manner in
which   Britain   lias  by   such   means as
these rejuvenated Egypt How. then,
does all this beneficial work appear to
Mr. Bryan? Surely he can lind here
something which he can write ahout
with some favor! Not so, however. His
comment on all ihis is summed up in
the following words: "English influence has been less harmful in Egypt
than In India." He is apparently determined to see nothing good in Hritish
colonial methods, Where others are
loud in their praise of what Britain has
been able to accomplish for lhe benefit
of that country, and what she has further mapped out for its fuiure, he can
only say, "England is better for beiog
watched." We can characterise this as
only a clear case of a determination not
to see or acknowledge the truth.
Those who have closely followed Mr.
Bryan's utterances will agree thai he
has blinded himself to the advantages
of British methods, and perhaps this
id the more (rue in as much as British
methods differ so radically from those
of the  United Stales.
The East Kootenay Lumber Company and the city of Cranbrook will have
ilie sympathy of the entire province in
the loss ot ibe extensive property of
the milling company there, It is satisfactory to know that the operations of
the company will not be seriously interfered wiih for any length of time, and
ihat immediate reconstruction of the
mill is contemplated.
