opinion that the city and provincial government were lacking In sympathy with

Archibald emphasized the need of a
radical change In the methods adopted
by thc school board to secure ubedlence

incidentally took occasion to designate
the chief inspector as a "faddist."

Montreal. March 20.���A prominent
banker stated that by April 16th there
would be plenty of money available
thronghonl Canada, in Ihe meantime,
however, the money situation ls acute
to say the least. Several banks started
to call money towards the close of last
week, and yesterday a promlnnt local
banker called on brokers for several
hundred thousand dollars. This created
a great deal of comment on the street,
and not a little consternation among
tho brokers, who found lt almost impossible to place loans elsewhere. One
broker said:
"There has been a small quantity of
private money floating around and that
has helped to relieve the situation a
little. When It comeB to taking new

Birthday of President Eliot, of Harard,
Duly Honored.
Boston. March 20.���President Charles
W. Eliot, of Harvard University, who
ls generally recognized as the foremost
educator In America, observed quietly
hlB "3rd birthday tinniversary at hie
home In Cambrldgo today. He passed
the greater part of the day as usual,
among his books, busy with his duties
as bend of the great university, although Interrupted now and then by
friends who came to congratulate him.
During the day numeroiiB messages
of congratulations were received by
President Eliot. They camo from other
colleges, from diplomats, from public
men. educational associations, and from
Harvard clubs scattered from New
York lo the Rocky mountains.
President Eliot has achieved the remarkable distinction of being the Harvard president for more than half his
life, for he was only 35 when he as-
sumed Ihe duties of his high office. Fifty-four yoars he has devoted to the
cause of education, for during the two
or Ihree yenrs or his early life when
ho was not teaching he was studying
university administration abroad and
gathering Inforninllon which has been
so successfully applied for the development of Harvard.
No other man was over president of
Harvard for so long a period as that
which distinguishes Mr. Eliot's life
When he entered Harvard In 1849 ho
was one or 6SI students; now there are

Ideas Gleaned from Coast
by E. K. Beeston
Tourist and  Improvement Associations Better Than Population
Clubs���Aid from City.
Mr. E. K. Beeston, who has recently*
been visiting the coast cities, took the
opportunity on behalf of tbe 20,000
Club, and at their request, of observing
the working of tbe tourist associations
at Victoria and Vancouver. He consented to give his impressions to The
Dally Canadian upon the understanding
that it was made perfectly clear that
he waB not seeking and could not accept any official position with the club
The first and mist noticeable feature
of these Institutions ls tbe prominence
of their commodious and well-arranged
offices. In both of these the secretaries
and permanent officials give the whole
of their time and attention to the affairs of the associations. The work of
the 100,000 and the 150,000 clubs has
been merged Into these, and It ls
generally thought that the title of'tour-
lst association" Ib better than that ot
one which apparently has in view only
the Increase of the population lo a
limited number.
Both associations have, however, as
their objects, "the advancement and lm
provement" of their respective cities.
Both also point wltb satisfaction to tbe
fact that they still continue to receive
the support of those who assisted in
forming the associations. Victoria points
especially to the new C. P. R. hotel as
the result of Its work, while Vancouver showB among other matters the
Improvements at English Bay as the dl
rect outcome of the tourist association.
In a variety of other ways both have
largely assisted the city councils In
bringing about Improvement tbat might
have otherwise not have received the
attention of the city fathers.
The advertising done by these assocl
ations has been carried on on a much
larger and more expensive scale than
has yet been possible ln Nelson, and
both claim, and apparently Justly, that
a large part of the tourist trade Is due
to their judicious and well-clrculat"il advertising. As an example of the benefits o fthe tourist trade and the advantage of a well-organized tourist association, it was stated in Vancouver that
the number of visitors to the rooms
who had registered during the past
year was 7,000, that about 20,000 persons had visited the rooms, and that
probably 80,000 visitors had remained
in Vancouver for a shorter period. A
largo part of these, without having
their attention directed to the nierltB
of Vancouver, would have passed
straight through, regarding Vancouver
as.a shipping place and transfer point
only, lt is estimated that the expenditure ��f these visitors averages $10. and
that thus. Borne three-quarters of a million dollars was brought Into the city.
Victoria, which Is fast becoming almost a suburb of Winnipeg, claims that
tbe advertising has largely brought this
The Victoria association also, in addition to Its well-appointed room for visitor!!, has one devoted to the display of
home manufactures and productst,
which lorms an Inter-eating attraction,
ln regard lo advertising, It has been
learned that the Vancouver assoclutlon
s'nt out last year 175,000 hook pamphlets and publications.
Both Victoria and Vancouver afford
much assistance to Nelson by prominently putting forward the Kootonay
pamphlets and pictures and answering
Inquiries about the interior of the country. The questions were raised as to
the co-operation of all the various associations in British Columbia to obtain
provincial government assistance In
more widely advertising the whole
country and of maintaining a central association whicli would circulate general
advertising matter as well as that relating to a particular district. Both of
these matters are worthy of further
In Victoria, civic assistance has been
given to the amount of $7,600 per annum, while in Vancouver $1,000 has
been given. In the former city some
objection is being taken by a part of
the new council to the amount given,
but It is thought It will be renewed,
and It is generally felt that those who
have mosl benefited by the work of
the association are the owners of real
estate, and that consequently 'the ratepayers  as a whole should  contribute.
Asked for some suggestions In regard
to the Nelson 20,000 Club, in view of
the expected general meeting, Mr. Beeston said that there were mar y which
presented themselves, but the y would
come better perhaps through the committees wbo mlghl be appointed. Advertising was the first necessity, and
lt waB generally conceded that a city
was like a merchant���the one who advertises most extensively and -well aud
has the goods to offer at proper prices
gets the business. To do this here civic
���assistance Is necessary. The amount
reticently donated to the city has but
barely sufliced to cover the extra cost
of tbe Increased pamphlet. In Victoria
the mayor le with great advantage,
ex-officio, the head of the association.
This removes the position from any
private choice, and is an assurance
that the public (unds are being wisely
and properly expended. Tbe work of
tbe association most largely devolves
upon the secretary, who in addition to
the literary work necessary for advertising, should give all his time to looking after visitors, etc. Proper rooms devoted to this purpose and not connected
with any particular business appear
also a necessity. In this connection, lt
Is suggested that they could be provided at the court house building, and at
the Bame time, a room could be given
for the proper display and care of minerals, fruit and other specimens. If
eventually the office of secretary were
united with that of the board of trade,
with which there is great affinity, and
proper civic assistance were given, the
full time of a secretary for this work
could be obtained and adequate remuneration could be given.
in the work of "development and Improvement," there Is obviouBly much to
be done. The removal of many unsightly and useless structures, the cleaning
np of the streets and especially the
lanes, the lighting of the city, and improvement of hotel accomodation,
means of travel, etc., are all matters
which could take up a great deal of the
attention of the association. The infusion of a spirit of improvement Into
the minds of property owners will do
very much to make the city more attractive, and it should be remembered
that every pleased visitor not only
means the possible bringing of many
others, but also the chance of many remaining to Invest their capital In the
country. A well-kept city is the strongest advertisement It can have. Real estate values can only Increase upon an
actual or prospective advance in the
population, and in thla respect Nelson
has great advantages. In .Victoria and
Vancouver the -amount of land that Is
being laid out in lots -and dally brought
Into the market ls ln excess of all possible requirements for an even larger
population than the most sanguine look
forward to In a few years. In Nelaon,
however, the amount of building land
is limited and a glance ar the map and
a corisuteratfon of the number of vacant lots will show how little spare land
there would be If the present population were only doubled. Nelson, geographically and commercially ts the centre of trade of the district and cannot
but grow with the development of the
country, and properly conducted advertising, on the lines laid out, cannot but
assist In attracting people. Its "advancement and improvement" must
come from the residents and property
owners, and real estate values will then
advance, and as already pointed out.
owing to the expansion of the area of
the city being almost Impossible, the
present prices are. comparatively
speaking, low.
The pamphlet is in the hands of the
printer and arrangements for Its immediate printing were made before Mr.
Beeston left Victoria.
Reported   Strike   of   New   Source   of
Wealth in Wonderful Cobalt District.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Toronto, March 20.���That thero is
platinum in the ores of Cobalt Is the
claim made by Mr. Robert H. Ahn. who
has had considerable experience In New
Ontario minerals. Yesterday Mr. Ahn
told the Olobe that this valuable metal
was found as an arsenide of platenum.
It existed In nlccollte, which Is found
in many Cobalt mines. Of late not a
great deal ot attention has been paid
to the nlccollte. Mr. Ahn says that he
can readily understand why the platinum has not been discovered in Ihe
assays because of its solubility when in
the alloy with silver by the acid used
In what Ib technically termed parting.
Thus its presence ie overlooked unless
otherwise Bought for. Mr. Ahn points
out that the first nickel ores mined in
the Sudbury district were thought to be
simply copper. He thinks that if the
mine owners were to have their ores
carefully examined for the platinum
tliey would almost be certain to find lt.
The Buffalo mine has now 1,160 feet
of drifting: Not long ago this property
sent a car ot experimental ore to a concentrating plant, and the results were
highly satlstactory. The management
are now considering the advisability of
installing a concentrator of their own.
English capital ts now being invested
In Cobalt. The British Premier Mining
company are now dally buying claims
in Bucke township, while the British
American company are also large purchasers.
Now Recognized by Public
Narrow View Ascribed to Enjoyment
by French Canadians of Freedom
Without Responsibility.
London, March 20.���The Morning
Post correspondent says Sir Wilfrid
Laurier will represent the views of the
French-Canadians only, respecting an
Imperial council. The Post editorially
says tbe pity of It ls probably his hostile- attitude is based on a misconception. The proposal to call the conference of an imperial council fs retained
In connection with the plan, bpt is
quite different to the original.
It merely aims to give the conference
a continuous existence by arranging for
responsible ministers of each state to
reside in London which would not alter
the principle of the existing conference.
The misconception, the Post says, probably accounts to some extent for the
hostility of Canada. It hopes the Canadian minister will consider tho Australian proposal on Its merits.
Discussing whether Botha will follow
Sir Widfrid Laurier rather than Jameson, re the colonial conference, Morning Post says the Boer general was
born under political conditions very different from those of Quebec. Ho represents a people for whom bogey militarism has no terrors. The Transvaal
Boers are unlikely to approach the
question of imperial defense from the
standpoint of the French-Canadians.
The future perhaps may prove people
which have known the stern realities
of Independence are more amenable io
Ideal imperial partership on a basis of
self-respecting alliance than one which
has enjoyed generations of irresponsibility as a colonial self-government.
In Johannesburg De Wet strongly objects to Botha's visit to London on the
ground he ought to have gone through
the full session of parliament. "Dinners
and again dinners and nothing but dinners may divert Genera! Botha's human mind from the business of his

To Save Historic House.
Washington, March 20.���Active steps
are at last being taken to save from destruction the old Key mansion, occupied
by Francis Scott Key, who wrote "The
Star Spangled Banner." The old Key
mansion ls located ln Georgetown and
is in a state of decay, having been neglected for many years. Several unsuccessful efforts have been made to preserve tbe historic house, but no real
progress was made until United States

Wife   of  German   Settler   in   Alberta
Takes Her Life After Brooding
on Wrong-doing.
Btettler, Alb., March 20.���Rumor was
brought in a few daya ago that a murder had been eonrmttted at Notre Dame
de Savole, a aetUemant some 20 Biles
eaat of Stetler. With their usual
promptness the constables of the Northwest Mounted Police commenced an Investigation, on the results of which
brought to light a pathetic suicide.
It appears that a German, of the
name of Strlbrltz, waa aummoned a
few months ago for assault on hia wife.
He waa sent up to Fort Saskatchewan
and detained there for two or three
monts. The man claimed to have cause
to suspect his wife of Infidelity, and
while he was away lt ls supposed that
she lived on intimate terms with a
third party. When Strlbrltz returned
from the fort he treated his wife with
kindness and consideration, believing
hia suspicions to have been unjust.
Curiously enough, qualms of remorse
for all that she had made her husband
suffer, struck the woman, and she confided to her son that ahe meant to shoot
herself. Her husband suspected her of
designs on her life and secreted all the
the fire arms in the houae. Somehow
or other, the unfortunate woman obtained possession of a revolver and
after writing a note stating ber intention in plain words ahe pressed the
weapon to her heart and pulled the trig,
ger. She had evidently held the pistol with both hands, one hand on the
barrel and the other on the stock, as
the palm of her left hand was scorched..
Btribrita waa away at the time looking for horses. Her body waa found in
an outhouse by her children, who at
once gave an alarm and collected such

now at Essen to take over the guns

concern, which maintains the greatest
secrecy us to methods, would not permit unless It had, or was desirous of
cultivating, the closest and widest commercial  relations with Japan.

Fair Terms Resolution Is
Under Discussion
Routine Day in the Legislature-
More Excitement Expected ior
Today and Tomorrow.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Victoria, March 19.���Today's session
of the legislature was brief and like
many others, almost excluslevly devoted to routine business. The bills already introduced were advanced a
stage, and good progress was made on
those now in the committee stage.
Two interesting sessions are expected
tomorrow and Thursday. Tomorrow
routine business will probably be hurried to give time for the debate on the
premier's Fair Terms resolution. Speculation is rife as to the stand the Liberals will uke. It Is not expected that
there will be any opposition to the prln-
clbles embodied in the resolution.
On Thursday J. A. Macdonald will
ask the premier: "Is it the Intention of
the government to Introduce legislation-
at the present session of the house providing for the granting of the city of
Rossland a portion of the mineral tax
collected, or which may hereafter ba
collected, from the mines within tha
corporate limits of Rossland?"
It is generally conceded that the circumstances of Rossiand are exceptional, and that the government might,
without risk of establishing a dangerous precedent, enact some apeclal measure of rellel A MoomaendatfBB tfc

Policyholders Will Be In Absolute Control of Company.
(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Toronto, March 20.���The bill to incorporate the Policyholders' Mutual
Life Insurance company of Toronto waa
considered yesterday morning by tha
Private Bills committee of the legislature.
The company ls capitalised at $100,-
000, of which 30 per cent ls paid up. In
order that the capital stock may bo
eliminated it ahall be decided from time
to time by lot which shareholders ahall
be paid off, and this process will be followed until the stock is entirely In the
handB of the policyholders. So long aa
any of the capital stock remains the
shareholders shall be entitled to one
director on the board for every 125,000
outstanding. Before commencing business they must have $200,000 worth or
Insurance, and must take the deposit of
(26,000 with the government, therefore
not having any privileges not enjoyed
by any otber company. Tbe shareholders, cannot be paid off until the legal reserve snd deposit have been provided
for. The plan ls said to be an entirely
new one, providing as it does for gradual evolution from a joint stock company to a purely mutual enterprise. The
bill in Its amended form was reported.

anything Premier MeHride may say or

To those whose minds are so small
DO rational appeal can  be made     It is
apparently not enough for them to distort the accounts of what has already

that could only be considered as deliberate mendacity from anyone mentally
n sponsible. Hut, even in speaking of
Uie future, they cannot refrain from
aserihlns low motives to the premier
for what they think he will do.
Such Liberals are bt-yond the pale of
rational discussion, and their hopelessty

piovlnce: to vole for him wns to postpone their own patty's hopea of victory.
Many of them undoubtedly chose lho
chose the harder and   more honorable
et ttrafl and preferred the interests of
the provinc to those of their party.
Hut the position is no longer difficult.
The relative strength of parties in the

Thero may be a few���if so they have

who profess belief in those claims, but
who sneer at the manner of its presentation and insinuate doubts as to
th< sinceriy of Richard McBride. Th.
men who voluntarily take so ccntemp

perhaps on a few national hotidays and

valor and victory. Hut the dally, rou

Presentation to  Sir Charles Tupper by
Lord Strathcona and Many Other
The loiiowing fs the Ixindon Times'
account Of the presentation to Sir
Charles Tupper of a portrait of himself.
The occasion must be a memorable one
on account of the address to sir Charles
read by Lord Sinuheonu. and Sir
Charles reply in which the late high
commiasioner openly and fully endorsed
the rlews on Imperial unity and the
means o( attaining it, championed by
the Rt Hon. Joseph Chamberlain,
"Sir Charles Tupper was presented at
the Westminster Palace hotel with a
portrait of himself, painted by the Ifite
Mr. A. G, Turner,, and Mibseribed for by
friends of different political views, as a
mark of their appreciation of his ser.
vie > to Canada. The presentation was
made on behalf of the subscribers by
Lord Strathcona in the room in which
forty years ago tlu- delegates from Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New
l.ruuswick concluded their labors in
connection with the framing of the
Hritish Norlh America Act, The agetus-
gi neral for Nova Scotia. New Hruns-
wuk and Prince Kdward island, and
Mr. Henniker Heaton, M. P.. were
amopg thos-' pr.. st nt at  the ceremony.
Lord Straihcona. in making the pres*
rotation, read an address acknowledging the services which Sir Charles
had rendered to Canada during the past
60 years, first in his native province of
Nov.i Bootia, and later in thf wldei
sihere of the Dominion. His efforts,
in conjunction with those of his associates from other provinces, to bring
about the confederation would be long
and gratefully remembered. The contract for the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway and the act by which
tl received parliamentary sanction were
notable events in his career. As premier of Nova Scotia, prime minister of
the Dominion, and the high commissioner in Umdon he had rendered valu-
abb service, and his name would pass
r.cvtn 'o txisterity as one who had done
nuirh to place Canada in the high position she occupied today in the Bmpln
and among the nations of the world.
Sir Chr.rles Tupper. in returning
Its, -said the value of the gi'f was
enhanced hy his receiving it from i-ord
.-    .   .. ':.:<   -���.;* ���,*  ssi r   in   "".     offict
of hiiih commissioner. After mentioning that he was the sole survivor of the
. resentatives of Canada who met
in the same room 40 years aco in connection with the Hritish North America
Art, he said that one of the early acts
of the Dominion government was to
; ������ Canadian      industries,     after
which the construction of the Canadian
I railway was grappled with, and
finally acomplished, with the aid of the
lion-hearted capitalist who presided.
With proper facilities for trading giant
Its could be accomplished in a
country like Canada.   He did not think
II extravagant to say, looking at the
almost illimitable resources of Canada,
that the child was already born that
would see happy Hritish homes provided on the norhern portion of the continent of North America for ns larg" a
population .ts now occupied the Hritish
Islands In his judgment th.' future of
that country largely depended upon the
realisation of the measaze recently sent
by Mr C'KuuboHatn to the people of
Canada���thai of all the bonds that
could unite nations the bond of com-
nine* was the strongest, and that the
��� Ion of that fact would ultimately
leal to the closest union between Great
Bli aln and her colonies. They were
: ncouraged in this matter when they
r lee ted upon what had been acconi-
pl shed in a period of little more than
three >*ars since Mr. Chamberlain gave
ti|' the high offlce which he held fn the
governm mt to devote himself to the
advocacy of the policy. They were en-
couraged also by the knowledge that
Mr Balfour wns pledged to mak" tariff
reform the first constructive policy of
his pgrty when they returned to power
He believed that the day was not far
distant when the great body of the electorate of tho country would recognise
the sfan ihat ;!..-��� question of the want of
employment wou'd have to be solved
. v the  policy of tariff reform.

Profit in Diamonds.
At the annual meeting of the Premier
Diamond Mines company at Johannesburg, the chairman stnted that (ho
profit for 1906 amounted to .t:t.7;;,n-l9.

Edward Brown, Defeated In Portage la
Prairie,   Decidea  to   Move.
Portage La Prairie, March 20.���Tho
people of Portage la Prairie are very-
much exercised over the action of the
Brown firm in advertising their entire
holdings ln this city anil district for
sale, following the election In which Edward Brown, a member of the firm, was
defeated for this constituency. The action Is regarded by thu majority as
typical of Kdward Brown and of his
notion of politics. It ls generally regarded as a big bluff, due to dlsiippoin-
mciit over the result of the election.
Whatever may be the MfiSBfB. Browns'
rcusoiifl for putting this property ou
the market at the present Juncture Jn.
thu munner in which they have, there
are those who do not hesitate to say
openly that lt Is done as a means of
"getting even" with Portage la Prairie,
who voted and worked against the Liberal leader ln the late election. The
manner ln which this has been handled
cannot hurt the city any, however, especially with those who know anything
about the situation. No one man .nor
set of men, by leaving the city or selling their property at a fair value or
even at a great sacrifice, which Messrs.
Brown are not doing, retard the development or progress of Portage. The
cily iH surrounded by the best farming
district In the whole Canadian West,
which guarantees Its permanency, to
say nothing of the railway development
that Is going on. If Edward Brown
hopes to kill a city such as this by
advertising that he and his firm are
pulling out of it, It shows that he has
a more exalted Idea of his own importance than the people of Portage have,
as they indicated by their votes on
March Tth. lu the past Edward Brown
has delighted to pose as the man above
all others In Portage la Prairie, who
was patriotic and loyal. He has made
alt his money here. If he was such a
loyal Portager as he claimed to be. the
people now ask why Is he so ready to
pull out, Immediately after his defeat.
