African coast. She sailed from Karachi on her homeward voyage ln tbe
summer of 1782, and Is supposed to

Pondoliind, about thirty miles norlh of
St. John's river gates. Of a hundred
and fifty souls on board, fifteen were
drowned when the vessel foundered.
The remainder attempted to reach
Capo Town hy land; one succeeded. A
few years ago hundreds of coins were
found in the supposed vicinity ot the
wreck, some of gold, thought to be
Persian. In August, 1905, a Hand syndicate determined upon a search of exploration.
After ten months' perseverance in
adverse clrcutnBtnnces, the wreck has
actually been located. It lies ahout

Philadelphia. Pa., Nov. 18.���Lawyers,
clergymen and men or affairs, representing many states, assembled at tho
Bellevue-Stratford In this city today at
the opening -the second meeting of the
National Congress of Uniform Divorce
Laws. The attendance was larger and
of a more representative character than
that of the first meeting, which was
held iu Wushlngton last spring. The
present meeting, which will be In session several days, Is to consider the
draft of a statute whicli the congress
will seek to have adopted in every
state of tlie union. The statute was
drafted by a committee of eminent lawyers und jurlBls and prominent clergymen, all of whom are conversant with
the so-called divorce evil.
The act Is divided into three chapters. The first consists of jurisdictional provisions; the second procedure,
and the third general provisions, and
It is entitled "Au Act Regulating Annulment of Marriage and Divorce."
While little or no change Is made In
Ihe given causes for divorce as now
existing certain provisions were evidently made wllh a view of arresting
the Increasing demand for legal severance of martial bonds. Under these
provisions. w-cret, or "star-chamber"
sessions -for hearing divorce cases before masters or other representatives
of the courts are done awaw with, and
'all hearings and trials shall be had
had before (he court. . . , and In
all cases be public." It Is also provided that "a decree dissolving the marriage tie so completely as to penult the
remarriage of either party should not
become operative until the lapBe of a
reasonable time aftr hearing or trial
upon the merits of the case." The
Wisconsin, Illinois and California rule
of one year Is recommended.
Another part of the proposed law
prohibits the solicitation of a divorce
case hy advertisement, circular or otherwise, and prescribes for such an or-
fence a fine of not more than 11000
and Imprisonment of not more than one
year. Annulment of the marriage contract, as distinguished from divorce,
will be made for the following causes:
Impotency, consanguinity, existing former marriage, fraud, force or coercion,
Insanity and Illegal age.
Divorce, It Is provided, shall be of
two kinds���absolute, and divorce from
bed and board. Under the first classification the grounds shall bo adultery,
bigamy, conviction and sentence for
crime, followesl liy two years continual
imprisonment; extreme cruelty; wilful
desertion; and habitual drunkenness
ror two years. The same cause will
prevail In the second class with Ihe nd-
ditlonnl cause of "hopeless insanity of
the husband." No divorce shall he
granled If It nppears lo tho satisfaction of the court that the suit has
been brought hy collusion or that thc
plaintiff has secured or connived at the
offence charged, or has condoned II
or hns heen guilty of adultery not
condoned. The new law also mnkes
some Importanl changes In the praotloe and procedure In divorce cuses
nnd Iheir trial.

the general movement for an eight-

cannot be left to thc senate, with a free
hand for that body, but must be pro
nounced ujion by the government.

San Francisco, Nov. 13.���Secretary

Rebuking Unfairness.
The buneful effects of unscrupulous
slatciueuts In the newspapers which
wus pointed otu by The Dally Canadian some time ago is becoming apparent everywhere. The Colonist re
"An up-country paper says that a
series of governments has criminally
wasted the resources of Itritish Columbia. VVe were about to say that
the paper referred to knows that what
it says is not true but perhaps this
would he a mistake. Tbe prufundfty
of the Ignorance of some of those
people who write about the affairs of
this province can only be compared to
Infinity. Al the same time It would
bo Just as well If they would curb
Iheir desire to display It. People In
the East read what they say and when
they are asked to consider onr demands for better terws, they reply:
'Read your own newspapers; they say
you would not need to ask for anything
If your governments had not criminally wasted your resources.' It would
be a useful contribution to the inimical literature of the day If some one
of Ihese papers would tell specifically
what particular resources have been
criminally squandered, whereby the
revenue has been reduced."
The recklessness of these members
of the journalistic fraternity who are
piopared to make deceptive and untruthful statements for partizan purposes should meet with rebuke from
the people thewselveB. The city of
N-ls n affords more than one case of
is tel.lgent men who have been deceived liy the misstatements of party
organs and who need only the presen
lalh n cr ihe facts to admit their mis
appr dtens on.
Organized Labor Burlesqued.
Generally The News sympathizes
with organized labor. Organization has
been a potent factor in bettering the
wages and the conditions of life for
thousands of workers. But now and
then certain regulation's and proceeding of a union do not command respect.
In New. York Mr. Schlff, the eminent
banker, wns requested to lay the corner
stone of a new synagogue. Before doing so he wns forced to become a member of the Journeymen Stonemasons'
and Setters' Union. He was Initiated
In due form, he made a solemn declaration thnt he would never work for less
than 70 cents an hour and then received his "card," entitling him to
work on the corner stone of the Ohob
Zedek Synagogue. Tills is organized
labor burlesqued. The only effect of
such a ceremony is to cast ridicule on
the union, and to brand lis officers as
irresponsible and foolish persons.���

Prairie  Indians    Must    Work    Under
Government   Direction���Will   Be
Taught 8elf-Support.
Raymond, Alta., Nov. 13.���The Do
minion government has undertaken a
difficult (ask. The Indian department
has decided that the Indian must
work. The first experiment will be
made upon the Bloods, who have their
camping ground In the vicinity of
Raymond, where the Indians, aa well
as every other kind of help, are very
much In demand by the beet factory.
The department proposes to close
the ration houses to Indians who are
able to work when the call is made
for help by beet growers, and the Indians will be given to understand that
those who respond to tbe call will be
given the greatest consideration hy
the Indian department and reservation
officials. It Ib proposed to give the
Indians a regular pay day either al
the end of the month or at the conclusion ot the work they have in hand,
and a representative from the reservation will ne present to assist In the
settlement, pay the Indians' bills and
tako care of the residue, that he may
get some permanent benefit from bis
earnings Instead of wasting what he
has worked for so arduously.
Then are on the reservation approximately 1200 Indians, and there are
.now employed ln the fields about Raymond nearly 100 of them. Already
there is a growing unrest and they nre
preparing for an exodus so as to be on
the reservation on November 8, which

that treaty day has been |>ostponed to
December 7, or some other day near
that time or at any date after the beel
season closes.

leach the Indians to be self-sustaining,
to take care of what they earn, and
purchase with their earnings what will

Some tew weeks ago The Dully Ca
nariiun, in commou with other Consor
vatlve newspapers of British Colum
bia, directed the attention of the Toronto Globe lo the injustice ot an at!
mck on the provincial governmenl
which appeared in the editorial columns of thai paper, We pointed out
that the Globe based its humily oil the
statements made by tbe parts organs
(if the opposition here, aud that these
q-wans are unreliable. We also Btated
that The Globe shoulil advise Itself as
tn the facts before it spreads broad*
easl such reflections upon the provln*
cial administration as appeared In its
The Globe replies to these criticisms in a tunc that Is Cull Of asp* iiu
ami instead of frankly admitting that
it hus been misled ii seeks lo evade
that Question i>y reading us a lecture
on ihe evils of the subsidy system, it
'It is neither our purpose nor oui
place to go into a discussion of Hritish
Columbia's methods in dealing with
laud, timber, and minerals. The
charge's of carelessness and waste
made by Western newspapers may lie
entirely without foundation. We hope
Ihey are, and we hope lhe defence of
the Hritish Columbia press is valid In
(���very particular. It is no affair of
ours, und were it not for the pemtclOUS
subsidy system the general question of
results would not be our affair either.'
The former strictures of the Globe
were aimed wholly at the present administration and It unreservedly stated that the provincial government had
given  away  lands  and   franchises and
them, these would amply provide funds
for the development of provincial resources.    It also censured the present
���system of road building aud public
works, and said that these thtngd
should be left to the municipalities interested.
It is not necessary to repeat hero
how wide of the murk the Globe's censures were, or to point out how his*
taken it was In the premises which it
chose as a basis for its curtain lecture.
Since it shifts the issue to the question of What it terms the "pernicious
subsidy system" we shall show that It
Is equally unfortunate in its treatment
ol' the province in that respect. It
"In discussing the subsidy question
it Is necessary to point out continuously that the Dominion can give the
provinces only as it takes irom the
provinces. Every dollar given must
first be taken away. The Dominion
might collect all the revenue or none
of the revenue of the provinces, and,
so far as the revenue is concerned, no
one would be better or worse off. The
evil of the system is that it gives tho
provincial politicians money to spend
without the restraining check of tho
duty of collecting. The Globe contends
iimt this evil should be lessened, not
increased. Inequalities can and should
be adjusted by levelling down instead
of Ity levelling up."
According to the Qlobe tbe position
of the federal authorities in the matter of subsidies is ihen one only or
a glorified tux collector who absolves
the provincial governments from collecting for their own distribution,
minus, of course, a percentage for the
��� Kpenses of collecting. We surmise
that  this is a new view of the subsidy
arrangement, one not originally con*
I- mplated when the provinces were
federated, and one certainly not lived
Up to by the administrations of the
If "every dollar given must first bo
taken away" what becomes of the millions that are taken away wid never
given back? The province of Bt-tfah
Columbia alone has contributed since
confederation nearly twenty millions
more than It has received. If ail tho
other provinces have exceeded their
receipts by a proportionate contribution to the federal treasury there must
be a snug sum somewhere to be accounted for. What British Columbia
complains of is, not the amount which
she contributes to the federal treas*
nury, but that she does uot receive her
The Daily Canadian
mend the entire abolition of the subsidy system and cau secure unanimity
among the provincial premiers, as was
declared to be necessary In the case
ot an increase for llrltlsh Columbia,
we do not opine that much difficulty
will be fouud in securing the consent
of ihis province.
Hritish Columbia, however, contends
that, owing tc the character of the
country, the geological aud topograph'
Jcul conditions, it merits such special
recognition as is accorded other parts
of the Dominion in ihe developmental
stages. The Yukon territory is a case
In point    H can be clearly shown that
sir win rid   i.auiiers   administration
has not adhered lo the Globe's dictum
that what is given a province musl
first be collected from the province.
During the nine yeurs from June, 18114,
to June, IStUu, the total revenue from
tlu* Yukon district was $11,671,848,
while the expenditure from the federal
treasury tor the same period was $18/
���969,698, thus showing that the administration of that territory cost in excess of the revenue the neat sum ol
$_,888,356f or something over a quariej
ot a million dollars a year.
It will be urged, of course, that the
Yukon ease is exceptional, bul we tail
to see how this can be successfully advanced. The exploitation ot the Yukon
either was or was not a paying venture
on the part of the federal authorities.
If it was a paying venture und if it
be held that the results justify the exceptional expenditure, then we can see
no reason why British Columbia
should noi have an equally favorable
opportunity to show thut she cau justify federal expenditures in the development ol her vast resources. If, on
the other hand, it be argued that the
Yukon territory has been a disappoint
ment, there cau be but oue conclusion,
and that conclusion lhat the administration of the affairs of the Yukon has
lieen bail.
In one other remark the Globe is
palpably mistaken,    lt says:
"This is our affair only through the
efforts oi llrlllsh Columbia to extend
the pernicious subsidy system and further shift the collection ol provincial
revenues  to the  federal  authority."
The Qlobe must know that the provincial premier was invited to Ottawa
to meet the federal authorities with
the olher provincial premiers with a
view to a readjustment of the subsidy
grants. Mritish Columbia was not
alone in its request for additional sums
from the federal treasury. Almost, if
not ail the oilier provinces made sim*
liar demands, and most of them were
granted to the last cent. How or why
British Columbia should be singled out
and made the Individual scapegoat Is
difficult to understand, unless the
Globe has caught the infection of the
Liberal organs of the West and is determined to punish this province for
the firm stand made In respect to its
The discussion is not without its
amusing features, however, as it is but
a few days ago since we were solemnly warned by a grit organ that it is
to the Laurier administration that this
province must look for auy increase In
federal subsidies. It was further asserted that the leaders of the Conservative party had placed themselves on
record as being opposed to the extension of the subsidy system.
it might not be an evil suggestion
to intimate the necessity for these
giant minds of the East and the West
to get together and agree upon some
common scheme of argument. With
the contrary opinions so solemnly urged It is becoming more aud more difficult to reconcile the warring factions
ln the Liberal party anil friendly critics do not know exactly what course
to pursue. Evidences of disintegration
are not wanting when every wan writes
according to his own sweet will and
with such utter disregard of the facts
when the special conditions are taken
Into consideration.
If the Globe  Ib  prepared  to  recom-
The widespread effeel of the complications existing at Fernie between the
Crow's Nest Pass Coal company and
Its operatives is perhaps the only excuse an outsider can have for attempting a discussion ol the situation. Tha
varying and contradictory reports
which have heen given publicity but
lend additional difficulty lo a proper
discussion of the affair. It begins to
appear, however, that the issue between the warring parties has resolved itself into a question of the closed
Bhop and nothing more, and lhal while
the miners are determined to force
tho closed Bhop on the company the
company In turn is resolved to forestall that r-asult.
While there may be important considerations Involved in an "Issue of this
sort that are fully understood by the
contending parties, ll is difficult for
an outsider to appreciate llie gravity
of such an issue or the necessity for
Its being carried to thc length or stopping the mining and smelting Industries of a whole province as well as
Inflicting    untold    inconvenience    and
h.u-ii.-'nip���urn ���am���c_r..cl_, rrmue*ei.r
The fuel famine which has ceased
to  threaten  nnd  which  has become a
reality is causing incalculable loss to
many private Individuals as well aB to
mining companies ami other industries dependent upon a full and regular
Supply of fuel for their proset-utlon.
Thus the evils of monopoly and the
uncertainty of human passions have
combined to throw the whole country
Into a slate of suspense and privation.
The situation is the strongest possible argument in favor of the ennct-
ment of a compulsory arbitration law,
if not, Indeed, the public operation of
coal mining Industries by means ur
which the needs of ihe people and demands of the Industries may be supplied. The Willingness of the coal
company lo arbitrate on oue question
and of the union bosses upon another,
while they fall to agree Upon the matter which shall be arbitrated, shows
that neither party is sincere anil that
a merely factional fight Is well pleasing to both sides, lt Is to be a test
of strength between organized capital
on one side and organized labor un
lhe other, with uo doubt ut all us lo
which will win in the end. The operations of lhe 0. N. I7. Goal company
have been carried on from the first
with a shrewd eye to maintaining command of the whole situation, and whatever the rights of labor may be in the
question it is as useless fur the miners to hope to win as it has been in
every olher case where conditions
have been the same. The company
can evict thorn and be well within Its
rights under tho law, whatever may be
the moral aspects of the case. Even
In the present day, when labor locks
horns with unlimited capital and (logged persistence, there is little "hahce
for any gain by the toiling classes.
On lbe other hand the evidences
show all too plainly tbat the men are
not themselves a unit in their opinions
and nothing more quickly alienates
the sympathy of the public than the
spectacle of a union or aggregation ot
men at war among themselves. It
shows that there is something rotten
in the state of Denmark aud the outraged feelings of the public will unfortunately be turned against those who
most need sympathy from that quarter.
It might not be unwise for the next
session of the legislature assembly to
pass such legislation as would enable
the government to break such dead
locks either by compulsory arbitration,
as in New Zealand, or by the opening
of such collieries under government
control as would afford roller to people
and Industries when men lose their
heads and come to a war of wages or
of hours, or what Is least uf- all Impor
tant, closed shops.
The neat little weekly papers published here and there have a way of
watching over the interests of their
respective communities lhat smacks of
ternal vigilance. For instance, the
Sandon Mining Review says
"We suggest to the Nelson Daily
News that Karl Creamer, the man who
has Ananias skinned to a fare-you-well
finish, bo given a permanent billet on
their editorial staff."
Having gotten the worst of tho better terms question oven In their own
minds, the opposition newsmongers
are now returning to the Kaien island
deal. Something in the New Testament about that class of people, is
there not?

"The Soldier of Fortune," author
unknown, waa the piece selected hy
Harold Nelson and Clifford Lane Uruce
to "pen their week's engagement ln
Nelson. Many very commendatory remarks could be made concerning this
drama, hut It is sufficient to say thai
it affords ample scope for a display of
the genius of the company producing
it. Mr. Nelson has been seen so often
in this city that little need be said as
to his merit as an actor. As Sir Rupert last evening he justified all the
flattering notices of the press in the
ciiies he has visited. Mr. Bruce is improving with age, hut ft is doubtful if
his part in "The Soldier of Fortune"
is altogether suited to his peculiar talent. Win. Yule was applauded by his
old admirers and he deserved it. too.
.\ new man in the company is Oeorge
Dayton, and he certainly gave au admirable presentation of the old chancellor. Mr. Nelson has a new leading
woman In the person of Miss Pearl
Reesor of Toronto. This young woman
has already acquired fame, and justly
so As the Princess Yetive she displayed a marked genius for emotional
parts. Many complimentary things
could be said of the olher members ot
tho company, but space will not permit. The stage effects were Up to the
high standard always maintained by
Mr. Nelson, Tonight "The Virginian"
will be given, with Clifford Lane Itruce
in the leading role.
