Successful Efforts oi New
York Physician
Old Method of Treatment Superceded by Simple Mechanical Effects.
New York, June BO.���Dr. Joseph w.
Goldsmith, of the house stair of the
I/mg Island College Hospital, has discovered what he believes to he a cure
for meningitis. At all events, since application of his curative principle, ten
Cases have been successfully Irealed al
the hospital within a year, according to
nn assertion made hy Dr. Goldsmith,
and only iwo cases have been lost,
i uese two cases were far gone when
they were brought to the hospital, and
ihey died within an hour or two after
*'l evolved this cure." said Dr. (Jold-
siniih, "by working on a purely mechanical basis. The first thing to do in a
case of meningitis is to relieve conges
tion. Heretofore opium or some derivative or opium has heen used to this
end. Under my system the patient receives two baths u day nt  a tempera

physical condition ot the sufferer is

The physician added that this treat

the remedy was out of the question.
He said he experimented for some time

there is n very large showing of lead

its estimated comparatively high cost,
those Interested have not yet been able
to Induce the provincial government lo

have commenced li themselves, hoping

government towards, iis completion.

C. P.  R. and Hudson's Bay Companies
Refuse to Sell Except in
Small  Blocks.
Winnipeg, June 26.���All the land offices report a very steady and increasing inquiry for bloeks of good farm
land, and the general opinion is that
ihey are very hard to secure. American buyers especially from Illinois,
Iowa and Minnesota are persistent In
ineir efforts lo procure blocks of 25,000
to 50,000 acres, while several buyers
representing Kuropeun capital are looking for much larger holdings.
Blocks of lauds were easily gotten
last year, and, in lhe ear)y' spring of
this year, but they are undoubtedly
very hard Io procure now.
Tne policy of the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company not to sell their laud
en bloc; the fact that the Hudson's Hay
Company, retuse to sell iheir lands in
any other way than by retail, and the
fact also that Canadian Northern lands
already earned by them have all been
disposed of practically, have all been
productive of the present situation. It
would look as though the wholesaling
of land is practically a thing of lhe
past in Western Canada, and that the
business of the future will lie selling in
small kits���sections and half section
and quarter section lots.
Some sales have heen made of considerable acreage���5,000 acres and upwards���during ihe past week al $0 per
acre, together with survey fee, and
land men who lasi year looked upon
land at $7 per acre as being dear in
price, now speak of $\i i>er acre as being a reasonable price. On the whole,
lhe Impression was gathered from different firms that the land values had
risen about $:! per acre since Ihis time
last year, and Ihe conviclfon seems
general that lhe same thing will happen
lie! ween now and next spring. Two
causes will contribute to this result,
the one being the excellent prospects
for the crop, and lhe olher, still more
important cause, being the enormous
Immigration taking place from tho
United States and Europe. Even the
mosi optimistic westerner had no conception n few months ago of the number of thousands of people who would
he travelling through Canada this year
in a greedy search for land. Every one
who hns heen west tells lhe same story
���namely, thai wherever one goes ho
finds hundreds of fanners, principally
Americans, travelling here, there and
everywhere, looking for land to buy.
As for would-be homeseekers, there are
thousands of Ihem in every part of the
country, and homestead land of a quality which was two or three years ago
passed by is now being readily taken
uo. We heard of a number of Instances
where homesteads hnve been taken by
anxious searchers, although out of llio
acres less than half would do for cultivation.
Saskatchewan seems to he the arena
of greatest activity, due partly, no
doubt, to the great progress of railway
construction in thai province, and partly to the fact that this province promises to he one of tho greatest of our
wheat-growing districts. Lands at retail prices will not remain at the present level very long, hut ihiH fall, when
lhe new railway lines are very well forward and this year's crop has heen harvested, values will be from $2 to $5 per
acre higher than Ihey are at the present lime. In olher words, the general
consensus of opinion is that prairie
lands will be running within a reasonable length of time from the present at
$15 to $20 per acre, and good sale ut
that, Instead of $11 lo $14 per acre,
the price at which they are now selling.
The value of Improved farms is also
on the rise. Altogether ihe farm land
Bltuation Ih one or the greatest promise
nt the preseni time. Nothing now can
stop the progress of Western Canada,
and land holders are reaping the reward
of iheir investments.
Roof Garden lhe Scene of
a Tragedy
Most Sensational Tragedy in New
York  Criminal History-
Late Last Night.
.New York, June 2C���Stanford White,
a member of the firm of McKim-
Mead & White, architects, was shot
and killed during the performance at
Madison Square roof garden last night.
The police slate that the murderer Is
Harry Thaw, a member of a well-known
Pittsburg family. The murderer was
captured. It was opening night of the
big roof garden. During the second act
of the performance, while a comic song
was being sung, the audience was
thrown into consternation hy the firing
of three shots. Immediately afterwards
It was announced tbat a murder had
been committed, and the audience was
The performance was drawing to a
close, aud Spice's Big Six, a sort of up-
to-date "Floradora" sextette, came on,
when Mr. White entered the place. The
six women on the stage had begun
their song, when Thaw left his wife,
and, walkingr apidiy down the aisle,
stood for a few minutes directly behind
Mr. White, looking at hitn. White apparently was ignorant of his peril.
Thaw quickly pulled a pistol from his
trousers' pocket, aud in quick succession fired three shots, Two took effect.
eithe* wound being fatal. Mr. wmte
fell to the floor without a sound, Ihe
chair and table falling on top of him.
Policeman Debs, who had heard the
firing and the cries of the audience,
was the first officer on the scene. Thaw
was taken by him to Ihe police station.
New York-, June 20 ��� Perfectly calm,
Harry L. Thaw, who last night shot and
killed Stanford White, a prominent
architect, faced a coroner und a number of jKilice officers early today, absolutely refusing to make any extended
statement as to tho motive which led
up to the tragedy on the roof of Madison Square Garden as the first night's
performance of "Memselle Champagne"
was being sung to a close. While
Thaw, in Immaculate evening dress, sal
in a cell in the Tenderloin police station, detectives were scouring ihe city
for his wife, formerly Evelyn Florence
Nesbitt before her marriage, a chorus
girl and artists' model.
Mrs. Thaw disappeared as her husband was being hurried from the playhouse by a policeman, and after throwing her arms around his neck and crying. "Oh, Harry, Harry, why did you do
it?" she is said to have entered an automobile anil been whirled away before
the crowd or police recovered from the
excitement caused by one of the most
sensational tragedies in New York's
criminal history.
The search for Mrs. Thaw was continued throughout the night. During
the forenoon Captain Hodgins, of the
Tenderloin station, said lhat she had
heen located, hut lhal he did not Intend Io do anything hut watch her���for
the present, at least. Long before the
time set for the arraignment of Thaw
in the Jefferson market police court,
his valet went to the Tenderloin station with a change of clothing for the
prisoner, so thai he would not he compelled to appear In court lu the even-
lug clothes which he wore when taken
Into custody.
It was reported today on the authority of several persons interested in the
case that Thaw's defense will he that
he was and is Insane. It was said lhal
at his trial he will be represented by
the best and most noted lawyers of the
day, who will ask for Ihe appointment
of a commission on lunacy to examine
as to the state of Thaw's mind. "There
can he no doubt/' said one of these
men, "that Thaw was and is hopelessly
Insane, and lhal the commission will re-
port  him so."
New York, June 2*J.���Harry Kendall
Thaw, of Pittsburg, brother of the
Countess of Yarmouth, who shot and
kilted Stanford White, the noted architect, last night, is a prisoner in the
Tombs today. Thaw admits Ihe killing,
pleading that his act was justifiable.
He said that White had wrecked the
life of his wife, the beautiful Florence
Evelyn Nesbitt, whose marriage to
Thaw scarcely more than a year ago
wns one of the sensations of the limes.
Tho murder of White was probably the
most dramatic and sensational tragedy
the city has witnessed since the killing
of Jim Fisk by E. S. Stokes more than
110 years ago. Aside from the prominence of lhe principals, the setting for
the crime was unique. Surrounded by
more than a thousand persons, who
crowded the great open-air theatre on
the roof of Madison Square Harden,
Strangely enough White met his death
ou what has long  been recognized as
one of the great monuments to his genius,
Proceedings in Ihe case against the
prisoner today were carried on with
unequalled rapidity. From his cell In
the Tenderloin police station Thaw was
taken to police headquarters, where his
photograph was taken and his measurements made. He was arraigned in the
police court and remanded to the custody of the coroner, nnd shortly afte*
noon he was in a cell in the Tombs,
formally charged with murder and held
WtthOUl hail. The coroner set the inquest for Thursday, and said that counsel on both sides desired lhal the case
he submitted to this month's grand
Jury. Thaw's defense probably will be
Insanity, and already threp noted alienists have heen called in to report on
bis mental condition.
Counsel for Ihe prisoner announced
this afternoon that they knew the
whereabouts of Mrs. Thaw, and that
she would be produced at any time her
presence is desired. The mother of
the prisoner is a passenger on the
steamer Minneapolis, which Is due to
arrive in England on July 3rd.
The funeral service over the body
of Mr. White probably will he held at
SI. Rartholomew's church on Thursday,
Bishop Coadjutor Greer officiating.

Prominent Labor Leader    Advises   to
Kick Over the Whole
Wellington, New Zealand, June 2G.���
At a large meeting of Labor Unionists
held here ou Monuay, a prominent leader, discussing the compulsory arbitration act, summed' up its effects in the
following terms:.
"While we are receiving no increase
in wages, our expenses as regards
house rent and the cost of living are
increasing year by year. Up to the
present time we have had to counsel
palience to the disaffected, members,
but we cannot go on crying 'Peace,
l>eace,' when there Is no peace. I do
not know what is going to happen unless you kick over the whole concern,
and If that eventuated I should bo
afraid of the results. If such a thing
as a strike once started. I feel sure that
there would be no holding the unionists, the disaffection  Is so deep."
In Western Australia the report of
the executive committee of the council
or mines recently pronounced compulsory arbitration a failure, while a| few
months ago a prominent Sydney labor-
ite qualified the measure as "this cursed
arbitration act."

morning for Its ninth annual convention. There is a very large attendance,
chiefly of teachers from the Lower
Mainland district.
President F. H. Eaton, M. A., superintendent of Victoria city schools, mado

would prove helpful to those taking
The first address on the program was
on "Modern Tendencies in Education,"
by James L. Hughes, senior Inspector
of public schools of the city of Toronto.
Mr. Hughes has a fresh, breezy, unconventional and very vigorous style,
which at once took with the audience
and held their attention. He covered
the whole field of modern educational
effort from classics to manual training.
He urged that while all schools should
keep abreast with the latest improvements, that the old staples of learning
should not be neglected. He dwelt especially, and approvingly, on the steady
growth of interest In the practical side

Blue Started by Child threatened to
Wipe Out Town.
After several years of immunity,
Sandon was visited by a conflagration
yesterday morning, which destroyed 15
dwellings. For several hours the whole
town was threatened, but the steady
efforts of the firemen and other cits,
zens, aided at last by a fortunate turn
of the wind, saved the town at the expense of the timbered hillsides.
The fire was started by a child playing with matches. The loss is In the
neighborhood of $15,000, only partly
covered by insurance. Among those
whose property is destroyed Is W. Davidson, M. L. A. for Slocan riding.
Mahara's   Minstrels'    Performance   of
Fair   Merit���Coming   Again.
Mahara's Minstrels, which played at
Sherman's opera house last night,
pleased a fair-sized audience. The
management announce a return engagement during the celebration Monday
and Tuesday, July 2nd aud 3rd.
Afler those who saw the show last
night tell their friends about It, there
Is reason fo believe that they will be
greeted by better houses on their return.
The company's orchestra Is especially
good, and the Juggling feats are certainly Ihe best ever seen In Nelson.

of the Ymir district met yesterday afternoon, and granted the application
for the transfer of the license nf the
Mersey hotel, Eric, from Mrs. MucBean
lo .1. R. Unimex.

[i   is difficult  al   this distance rrom
ihe theatre of Russian affairs for  tho
observer to correctly  Interprel  thi   actions of ilie charai tors upon lhe stage
nf political strife in thai empire.   Tlu
despatches bring to us with wearisome
repetition tho story of the conlllcl  between tlie eniii'i partj and thi   peasantry, ihe story ol massacre and riot, withoul giving us any clue to the immediate cause of ihe dissensions and of iho
discontent which precipitnti    these con
fllcta,   We feel Bure, therefore, thai the
majority of our readers will appreciate
some statement of the essenilal caus a
which    underlie    Ihese    repented out-
bri aks,
The agrarian  question   has    always
been the baste problem in Russian economics,  aud   ii   has   now  become   the
mosl  urgent  question  In  Russian  poll
tics,    As RusBla is li ss urban than an.\
other European stale, nnd us the revo
lutiannry centres nre naturally  In  the
towns,  the  peasnniB���or   muzhiki    as
ihey are called   are nol well organized
for  revolt.    The  present   muzhik  attl
nine is especially to bi  feared iu Rtib
ala, because these people have hitherto
been  the one elemcul   In the  Knssi.in
population thai hnve noi challenged the
emperor's    authority.    Now,    however,
peasani animosity is thoroughly aroused
agaiusl  ihe  ministry,  ihe  landed   proprietors, and even againsl the little father  himself.    They  hnve  prosecuted
their destructive and BUlcldal purposes
ami pursued   their fanatical   policy    ol
destruction till one can travel for fiftj
miles in many areas and nol find n sin
glo largo country house standing. ".Millions of dollars'  worth  of grain,   rye,
wheat and  barley,  together with   fat in
implements and  tho property   oi    lhe
land owners,  have    been    burned and
scattered   In   lhe  mlro,"  and   this, too

The agrarian   ri .'olutlonlets,   eras -i
by years of misery, fancy thai all iheir
woes are from an Insufficiency of land,
and thai  tholi  wrongs can ho righted
only by wholei ale  and  I ircibli   Hpi rn
pr la tion of land.   Through their ropre-
son ta Lives In the Douma they have been
demanding the expropriation oi till the
lands  belonging   tn tho    crown,    tho
church nnd private owuers, though the
carrying oul  of bucJi a  projeel  would
increa.se  ihe  present   peasant   holdings
by only some two acres.    This expropriation could he effected In ono of two
ways���eiihcr by payment or by force.
If payments were to be made, ;v largo
innn would be required, amounting to
three   billion    dollars,    with    Interest j
charges   of over  a   hundred  and  fifty I
ihe land Is to bo taken by
| force, a revolution will be required, am
j li would seem as though the peasantry
urged on by the revolutionists, are pre
paring for Ibis. The czar appreciates
the gravity of lhe situation, because
Ihe discontent and misery of the peas-
inns Is appealing to bis soldiers, and
their loyally Is being suspected���not
without some signs of cause.
The  vasi   majority  of  the  illiterate
peasantry favor a resorl  to arms, hm
there Is ;i  middle party who, while in
favor of appropriation of the necessary
hinds, are willing  that   they should  be
paid for.   This latter class is represent*
ed in the Douma by the constitutional
democrats, and,   fortunately   for   the
country, they nre largely in the majority in the Douma.   The demand of ihis
parly is not that the lands of the crown
and churcb be confiscated, but that they
be  leased,  and  that   ihey   ho occupied
by muzhiks who shall pay their rentals
in work done on the adjoining or unloosed properties of the landlords. This
proposal   goes   bul   litlie   further   than
tlie land purchase act now so successfully In operation in Ireland.   The agrarian program of the muzhiks has been
so eloquently and logically explained In
the Douma  by peasant  representatives
that, In their apparent grasp of the subject, they have changed  popular opinion as to the illiteracy of ihe muzhiks
as a class.   Tq enacl  such a program
would require no revolution, and  if it
were enacted, would without doubt materially and  quickly  alter  the   peasani
conditions In Russia.
The ministers ami landlords, how-
��� wi, seem as obatlnnto in their resistance of the proposals as lhal class were
in England in ill i days when the feudal
wars began, and the same dark period
may be In waiting for Russia as prevailed in England before the matter is
finally adjusted. The struggle for
agrarian rights Is only a step ahead of
Lhe struggle for economic rights and
Industrial rights, so Russia has a long
and thorny road to travel before she
catches up wiih later civilizations In
her respect for ami constitutional guar-
of tho liberties and rights of her
The Lardenti Mining Review, commenting on the "yellow" journal methods of criticizing lion, u V. Green's

The Daily Canadian, June 26, (906
City  Council's First  Formal   Division���
Endorse Suburbs' Petition to
Education Office.
The negotiations for a new lakeside
park havo fallen through for the present. The city council rhinks tjoo an
acre should secure a clear title without
limitations as to use, and the company
owning ilie property in apparently not
in a hurry to sell. The old tramway
park will be used at least for the, balance of iho current year.
The proceedings of last nights regular council meeting were enlivened by
a debate and a formal division over the
disposal or a request from ihe Salvation
The council met al X o'clock, those
present being Mayor Gillett, in the
chair, and Aldermen Hume, Selous, Annable, Kirkpatrick, Rose nnil Irving.
Tho minutes of lhe last meeting wero
lead and adopled.
The mayor reported that lhe collars
lor lhe lire department horses would
be replaced hy the Toronto manufacturing firm wiih properly fitting collars
Without extra expense.
Tlie finance commiltee asked for Information about a salary provided for
an extra policeman. Tlie mayor explained it as being due lo extra work in
enforcing the cily bylaws. The committee then rejrorted, rerommending
payment ol accounts totalling J4.159.51
nnd a payroll of $lS5.or>. The re|>nrt
was  Adopted  and  payment ordered.
A ielter from Jl. nnd. M. Bird in regard to the city's right of way down
Cottonwood creek for the city pipe line,
enclosed a letter from .1. S. Dennis. 0.
P, It. land commissioner, slating thai a
right of way could not be granted, and
Ihe city must deal wiih the purchasers,
i ne letter was filed.
A letter from Brigadier Smeaton, of
the {Salvation Army, asked for a grant
from the city In aid of their Rescue
Hume work.
Alderman Selous moved to refuse.
The mayor thought ibe work deserved
aid. Other aldermen favored Iho movement, bul thought thai the city's tlnan-
clal position did not warrant a graid's
being made.
On a motion lo refer the request to
llu> finance committee, Alderman Selous
objected that lhe only report that could
be made was already known to ihe
Alderman Hume moved to grant *t$Q,
but was nol seconded.
Alderman Irving's motion wns carried on the flrsl division of Iho year
that required a poll���yeas, the mayor
and Aldermen Irving, Amiable and
Rose; nays. Aldermen Selous, Hume
and Kirkpatrick.
A letter from fi. Crow Maker merely
acknowledged the receipt of a letter
from tho city clerk slating Hint the city
objected to the clause in tho proposed
agreement of purchase of the new park
limiting the city lo lhe use of tho property [or park purposes only.
An informal discussion followed. Alderman Kirkpatrick suggested expropriation*, but was answered tbat such
a course would involve lhe same limitation.
Alderman Rose remarked lhat Nelson
has n park capable of improvement)
but others thought that a park on the
lake front should he secured if possible.
It was resolved that tho city should
pay lhe taxes and make some improvements on the old park.
W. A. Mncdonald. K. 0,, wrote in relation lo tho West Kootenay Power and
Light Company's appeal, stating ihat
he had .secured nn agent in London,
nnd would have n senior counsel engaged shortly. His own fee as junior
counsel was agreed upon with the commit lee.
In reference to the question of lhe
p'Loughlln building, the former Qrand
View hotel, the City solicitor gave his
opinion lhal unless It wns considered a
dangerous nuisance, its dombUUoti
could not bo ordered, and In any case
a bylaw would bo necessary.
Tho letter wns referred to the mayor
and  Chief  Oensy.
A potMion from the property owners
of Addition A for a school, or for permission io send children to iho city
schools,  wns  received.
A. Hinde was present on behalf of
iho petitioners, and  was introduced by
Alderman Rose.
Mr. HindQ said that all the petition*
ors wished In send their children to
lhe Nelson schools, nud hoped lhat nr-
rangements to that end might be made.
Il was resolved thai lhe council
should endorse uio petition for a grant.
In tho discussion ii was resolved that
Die city voted In annex Ihe soclton in
which tlie petitioners live, rfhd that the
mutter had died four yours ago in Iho
office of Iho provincial secretary. On
motion of Alderman Hose, the clerk
was instructed to write inquiring as to
Ihe stains of Ihe n'��'S'i<>n-
Alderman Rose inquired about two
requests of his referred to tho fire, water nnd light committee, and never reported upon. A meeting was (hereupon
arranged for today.
The cily clerk asked Instructions as
to Hie purchase of city debentures, and
was loltl to purchase as funds wero
Alderman Irving reported that Kwong
Wing Ohong had 14 nozzles at work
keeping his house cool at the city's expense. Tho mayor undertook to investigate.
The council then adjourned to .luly
