Bicentenary of Birth of Fielding Celebrated in London.
London, April 22.���The bicentenary
of Henry Fielding, thc earliest of England's great novelists, was observed today by literary societies throughout the
United Kingdom. In London a notable
dinner was held under the auspices of
the Society of Somerset Men. Sir Arthur Canon Dyle occupied the chiar and
several score of literary and dramatic
celebrities were ln attendance.
It was Just two hundred years ago
today that Fielding flrst saw the light
of day near tbe town of Glastonbury.
He was sent to Eton and studied for a
time ln Leyden, but bis life was careless und the remittances from his father
small and Irregular. His subsequent
career was as interesting as that of any
of the subjects of his pen. By the time
that he was 20 he was writing for the
stage, and making some headway, but
his Income waa uncertain and hia habits
reckless. In bis 27th year he married
a beautiful and amiable girl who
brought to him a dowry of several
tbouaand dollars. He determined to
settle down, but bis love of pleasure
and display overcame him and be soon
squandered all the money. He was over
.0 years old when he produced his second and most famous novel "Tom
Jones." His third novel, "The History
of Amelia," was published when he was
45. Two years later he died of dropsy,
while on a visit to Lisbon.

made yesterday on Palatine Hill. Whilo

Palatine Acropolis snd also to exploro

found, evidently a pit or tomb. It Is
similar to those discovered on the Roman Forum. It is believed to be connected with the earliest habitation and
to have been constructed by the found-

Foster-Ayleswortb Duel
Si tlie Topic
Insurance Commission, Mere Weapon
oi Ottawa Machine, Will Cost
Canada $105,000.
Ottawa, April 22.���The duel between
Mr. Foster and Mr. Aylesworth ls still
the chief topic ln parliamentary circles,
although the whole session has been
full of sensations. The patently deliberate purpose of the Insurance Commission as organized and Instructed by Mr.
Aylesworth, to kill Mr. Foster politically, la admittedly without a parallel in
the history of the Canadian parliament.
There was a question on which the
Commission spent a great deal of time
and which Mr. Aylesworth debated at
���great length, whether all the directors
of the Loan company understood the
nature of tbe transactions. It had been
suggested that one or two of them,
whom the commission and tbe government does not wish to -condemn, aa they
are party friends, did know tbat Mr.
Foster and other co-directors were concerned In the Land company. But Mr.
Foster produced tbe records showing
that every detail was set forth in tbe
documents presented to the full meeting and mentioned ln the minutes. One
director told the Commission that he
could not remember agreeiug to or hearing some of tne resolutions adopted and
Mr. Aylesworth without making a Btatement himself, repeated the statements
of the Commissioners, casting doubt on
the records. Mr. Foster went through
tbe whole record showing conclusively
that all the proceedings were endorsed
by all tbe directors, and that each of
ihem had or waa ln a posi sion to have
full knowledge of every detail.
This land transaction proved to be
altogether safe and exceedingly profitable. Tbe cumpany has got all its
money back with Interest and |40,000
bonus together with $30,000 or $40,000
profits on management of the lands.
Very little was said by Mr. Aylesworth respecting the Trust company's
British Columbia investment. Mr. Fowler deult with it fully. Reference to his
Bhare of the discussion will appear ln a
future letter, lt Is enough to Bay that
no question aroBe In the British Columbia investments In which Mr. Foater
was accused of a personal interest. It
is true that an examination of Mr.
Fowler's books by the commission dis-
closed the fact that Mr. Foster had
borrowed $2,500 from him, and the commissioners went out of their way to say
that out of the profits "Fowler paid
Foster at least $2,500 and probably
$7,000." This misrepresentation Is an
Instance of what Mr. Foster called the
"abandoned maliciousness" of the finding. It wsb in regard to such statements that Mr. Foster spoke of the reiiort aa "a damnable record, full of falsehood, to the utter abandonment of all
sense of honor, all truth and manly
conduct." ,.      _
But Mr. Foster's language, though
used by a man speaking under the
sense of personal Injury , was not
Btronger than that of his leader, Mr.
Borden, who held up to scorn and ridicule tho malicious attempt which had
been made to Injure his associate, it
wob not so strong bb some of the expressions used by several other members, Including Mr. Bennett, Mr. Fowler,
Mr. Lennox, Mr. JackBon, Mr. Porter,
Mr. Boyce, Mr. Le/urgey and Col. Sam
HughoB. Several of the members referred to the previouB record of Judge
McTnvUh, the chairman of the commission. A few years ago he was appointed by the Robs government on a -commission to Investigate the notorious and
scandalous West Elgin election crime.
The commission, as members state, submitted a report whitewashing every act
in that Infamous carnival of crime.
Thero were many exciting scenes during tho debate, though no government
supporter -except the minister of Justice
ventured to say a word lu support of
the charges made agalnBt political opponents. Slanders either open or Insinuated from the government benches
have already brought sufficiently dire
consequences to the government ranks.
One minister has dieappeared, another
Ib In exile, and ministerial members are
nainfully unoertaln where thc next blow
may fall. Meanwhile Mr. Foster can
congrntulato himself on the fact that he
has the loyal support and the ��r" confidence of his own party In the House.
Perhaps never In the history of parliament was a speaker applauded more
often, and more heartily than the member for North Toronto during his ad-
Mr. Fielding announces that the com

He Is to have a general fee In addition,
and strange to say the amount of thla

results. His -associate,. Mr. Tllley, got
$50 a day and expenses and has received $4,000 on account. To the Actuary $50 a day and expenses was paid,
and he had two assistants at $20 a day
each. The pay of the commissioners
was $30 each per day tnd expenses and
they have drawn $6,500.

Southern Roada at War With Interstate
Commerce Commission.
Washington, April 12.���One of the
most Important cases which the United
State supreme court has had to deal ln
a long time came up for argument before the tribunal today. Tbe caae is
one In which several of the prominent
southern railroads are aligned against
the Interstate Commerce Commission.
The direct question ai Issue Is the right
of the railroad companies to advance
the freight rate on lumber.
But there ls a far broader queation Involved than this direct issue of lumber
ratea. Thla is the scope and power of
the Interstate Commerce Commission.
The case has been pending since
April, 1903, when the Central Yellow
Pine Association, composed of manufacturers of that product In the territory
eaat of the Mississippi river and west
of Georgia, waa formed for the purpose
of fighting an advance ln freight rates.
They alleged that the advance was unreasonable In Itself and the product of a
conspiracy among all the carriers of
yellow pine in the South. The matter
waa taken before the Interstate Commerce Commission. About the same
time a similar action was begun by the
Georgia Sawmill Association agalnat
tha railroads ln that territory. In Feb-,
ruary, 1906, the commission decreed
that the advance waa unreasonable and
the railroads were ordered to desist
from further demanding of lt.
But tbe railroads were not satisfied.
They gave a supercedea bond of $500,-
000 to repay the shippers for an excess
of chsrges ln the event the decree
stood, and then appealed their caae to
the United States circuit court of appeals at New Orleans. This court upheld the decree of the commission.
The railroads then took an appeal to
the United States supreme court.
Should the decisions of the lower
courts stand unshaken, the ruling of the
Interstate Commerce Commission will
be justified, and the right and power of
that body will claim another precedent.
At the same time the lumber shippers
of tbe South will have won a rate on
shipments which ln a year's aggregate
of business will mean a saving computed to be more than $1,000,000.
Oreat Northern Railway Company Buying Mora Coal Fields In That
Robert Stevenson, the mining pioneer
of the Simiikameen and Cariboo,- ta expected to arrive ahortly In Princeton
from Spokane, where he has been seriously 111 for some months. Mr. Stevenson hss a host of friends scattered over
the country among whom he Is always a
welcome guest. His reminiscences of
early day privations and encounters
with wild animals and hostile Indians,
besides of his marvellous feata of
strength and agility would make material for a large biography. He has some
fine mineral holdings In this section
which await shipping access. Last winter he sold his ranch above Princeton,
carrying the coal rights, for $14,000.
Major Anderson, of the Great Northern
bought It, It is Bald, for the railway company. Mr. Stevenson Is nigh the allotted span but all hope ho will break that
record and live many years to enjoy tbe
fruit of bis efforts and the prosperity
now dawning.���Simiikameen Star.
The ranch with coal rlghta referred
to, adjoins the site of Ashnola. and Is

same character ln the Immediate vicinity. It ls on the strength of these properties and the certainty of their development ln the very near future that W.
C. McLean has determined to lay out
the tow nof Ashnola at once and make

Commons delects Burl's
Straight Party Vote Defeats Recommendation in Favor of
Parity in Elections.
The following Is the full text of a
resolution moved ln tbe House of Commons by Mr. Borden, and defeated by
a straight party vote:
"That thla House deplores the existence of corrupt and fraudulent practices at elections, aa evidenced by the
disclosures during recent years of
bribery, personation, ballot switching
and other similar frauds carried on by
organised methods and upon a very extensive scale.
"This house condemns the organised
system of corrupt practices, by which
the election ot a minister of the crown
as member for the city of London waa
secured ln 1905.
"Thla Houae Is M opinion tbat the
existing electoral laws should be amended forthwith, and tbat provision should
be made (a) for the more effective suppression and punishment of bribery;
(b) to prevent the fraudulent marking,
counting, or substituting of ballots and
other similar frauds; (c) for the better
regulation of the conduct of elections on
the part of both officials and candidates; (d) to prevent the accumulation
of huge campaign funda, and to prohibit contributions thereto by corporations, contractora and promoters; (e)
to expedite the hearing of elections petitions to prevent collusive arrangements for the discontinuance thereof,
to provide for thorough investigation of
corrupt practices and to aimpllfy the
procedure therefor; (f) to carry out
more effectively the law so amended.
"This House regrets that, notwithstanding the pledge of this government contained tn the speech from the
throne, and, notwithstanding the declarations of members of the government
from time to time submitted to Parliament at the present session, no effective steps have been taken by the
administration, either to amend the
laws or to punish their violation."

All the Interest of Kooteuuy and Alberta will be centred tomorrow on the
conference at Ferule between tlle coal
mine operators and their employees.
Several representatives of other interests will be there to use their influence
with both parties to the conflict.
The situation Is the most serious that
bas confronted Kootenay In all Its history.
If the hopes of a settlement of the
ipiarre] and resumption of work In the
mines fail, the freight aervlce ot the
C P. R. will be discontinued at once
and within a week the passenger ser-
vlrn will be, if uot discontinued, at
least seriously interrupted and delayed.
Idleness of the coal mines will necessarily mean the cessation of freight service, the closing down of smelters, the
stopping of shipments from metalliferous mines, and the interruption of every
Industry that either Imports material
or exports products. At lonst DO poi*
cent, of the workingmen of Kootenaj*
will be out of employment.
Are the causes of the disturbance
commensurate with tho damage it is
doing and will do?
The men are striking for an Increase
of wages equal to about 10 per cent.
But they say, through tlieir mouthpiece, Mr. Sherman, that they would
not have been discontented with the
present scale of wages if they represented face value. But tliey charge
that, either from mallco or mismanagement, work haa been most uncertain,
and men have lieen laid off so frequently that In Bome cases they have received ln the course of a month only
half their nominal wages.
On tbe other hand, by the operators
or on behalf of them. It is alleged that
they and their employers, the share
holders, are weary of the dictation of
agitators and are determined to resist
all further demands.
There Is probably in this particular
instance a measure of right and wrong
on both sides.
But, though people are slow to realize It, the strike in East Kootenay Ib
only one example of what Is happening
all over Canada, from east to west.
It ls commonly said and admitted
that the cost of living has increased
enormously ln the last ten years. Nothing is really more difficult of production
now than then. But everything is more
costly now than then. The one element
In tho coat of production which hns Increased  ls wages.
Organized labor replies that as the
price of everything that the workman
must buy has increased his wages also
must Increase or he is the loser. Ho
does not see that he is himself responsible for the enhungod price of everything, partly by the higher wages which
ho has secured, and partly by the almost continuous strikes which have
greatly reduced production and materially altered the relations of supply and
demand upon which finally the price of
everything depends.
The greed, the determination to "get
rich quick," which has become the ruling feature of national character in
North America, as much now in Canada
ao in the United States, is the ultimate
cause, but it is one that legislation
cannot, and public opinion obviously
will not, remedy..
In British Columbia the whole question Is complicated by the Contract Labor law. A virtual monopoly has been
given to organized labor iq this province. When a strike is declared the
strikers have no occasion to resort to
terrorism to prevent its being broken.
Government has made lawlessness for
that purpose unnecessary by prohibiting
employers' securing other laborers. In
the endless game between capita! and
labor democratic governments have
loaded the dice In favor of labor. But
It. Is not capital that Buffers. Capital
can always wait. It is the non-striking
consumers who are crushed in the
game, ignored alike by capital, labor
and government.
If the coal miners' strike will reveal
these facts plainly enough for all to see,
force them on the attention of the lawmakers and those who elect them, lt
will not be an unmixed evil.
Vancouver City, the teaching profes
sion, and the whole province, as well
as his personal friends, have sustained a
heavy loss in the death of James O.
Shaw, late principal of Vancouver College. His quiet, almost secluded habits,
have prevented his becoming known to
many outside of tho city in which his
work lias been done, but hundreds of
pupils who huve come under his influence, and the few who have had the
privilege of knowing hlm Intimately,
will recognize that the province has
lost In him oue of Its finest exponents
of learning and culture. Mr. Shaw
represented a type of scholarship all too
rare ln America. He followed learning
for her own sake and for the nobility
of thought, feeling and purpose to be
developed by lt. His personal kindll-
noss and courtesy endeared hlm to all
who knew him.
If It is true, as reported from Ottawa
today, tliat the resolution of Sir Wilfrid Laurler on the subject of readjust-
.ment of provincial subsidies, has passed
through CommonB and Senate in a defective form, and oue that cannot be
presented as the basis of a petition to
the British parliament, it will mean
that Premier McBrlde's present visit to
London has been made unnecessary and
that, falling a fair settlement in the interval, he will have to go again next
year, it is not a matter for regret
however. There Is much useful work
that the premier can do in England, it
Is from the British Islands tbat we
hope to attract settlers to British Columbia, and Mr, McBride will now have
au opportunity of studying conditions
for himself, and determining what
measures are necessary to attract them.
Seven Juvenile offenders were dealt
with in the police court this morning-
It is of coure regrettable that children
of tender years have to be publicly reprimanded and punished. In some cases
perhaps parents are hardly able, from
absence or other cimcumstnnces, to exercise the care of their children,that
they owe to the children, to themselves
and the community. Bui children indulged in lawlessness are almost certain
to graduate into the class of professional criminals. Only prompt and effective
deterrent punishment at the outset can
save them. Under the circumstances
either to shield or pardon the ofTeuders
would be not kindness but cruelty.
The grievances of fruit growers on
the West Arm, and of the Nelson
Wholesalers' Association, will remain
in abeyance for a time. While there ls

We congratulate our esteemed morning contemporary, The Daily News, on
the completion of five years of useful
existence, and wish It many more that
may be profitable as well as useful.
Important Clause Omitted  From   Petition on Subsidy Readjustment
���A Year'a Delay.
Ottawa, April 22.���In the address to
the King, which has passed the Commons, respecting the proposed increased subsidies to the provinces, It is
believed an error has been made. The
address purports to be based upon resolutions which were agreed to by representatives of tlle several provinces at a
conference at Ottawa last November.
The following resolution, which ls to
be found on page 4, has been omitted:
"The populations us ascertained by
tlie last decennial census to govern except as to British Columbia, Manitoba,
Saskatchewan and Alberta, and as to
these four provinces, population to be
taken to be that upon which, under the
respective status, annual paymeuts now
made to tbem respectively by the Dominion, are fixed until the annual population is by census ascertained to be
greater, and, thereafter, the actual pop
ulatlon ao ascertained to govern."
The omission waa discovered by Senator Ferguson after the address was
sent to the senate. As submitted by the
government It would only nilow Manitoba a per capita allowance until 1911
on a population as ascertained by the
decennial census of 1901 Instead of by
the quinquennial census of 190C, and
estimated Increases In population within the present quinquennial period.
The Iosb to Manitoba in five years
would be somewhere between $500,000
and ��G00,000, while Alberta and Saskatchewan wot||d suffer proportionately,
part of the minister of justice to
stralgthen out the tangle. As the ad-
dresB deals with financial matters the
senate cannot amend it. The orror.

It would require some Ingenuity on the
of justice, cannot be corrected by an
Interchange of messages between them.
Apparently the only course open for
the governmenl Is to begin de novo in
Commons, hut in that event Speaker
Sutherland may feel himself bound by
his recent ruling against .Mr. Bourassa's
secoud motion regarding "Wine, Women and Grafe" charges. Further, the
passing by the Commons of another address would be a violation of principle
that a Bdcond mol lon having tlie sanie
object as the one already passed cannot
b<> accepted during the same session of
parliament. It will be Interesting to
observe how the government will wriggle out of the difficulty.

Cosl Miners Complain of Arbitrary Layoffs and  Consequent  Heavy
Loss of Wages.
Under the caption "Labor Notes by
a Labor Man," In Saturday's issue of
The Morning Albertan, of Calgary.
A. B. R. contributes the following plain
Btatement on the coal miners' strike,
Itn causes and  probable course:
In this trouble between the coal miners and operators of Alberta and southern British Columbia, there are many
things that the average citizen does not
understand, aB there must be in all coal
mine troubles. And It Ib unfortunate
for the mlnerB that it is so, for those
who know something of the bUBiness
and what the men are up against are
the readiest to sympathize with them.
Hut there is one outstanding fact
which should be lost Bight of by no one,
and that Is that the miners are greatly
dissatisfied with the conditions under
which they have been working, and the
way ln which they have been treated by
Ihe operators. This was shown conclusively by the overwhelming vote In
favor of a strike and the fact that the
men did not even wait to get the consent of their union before going out.
These men have not gone out for the
mere pleasure of loafing. They have had
too much loafing already this winter.
President Sherman stated at a public
meeting in Calgary some time ago that
during the time when the whole West
was Buffering from want of coal, the
miners were experiencing the slackest
season they had ever known. This was
caused hy lack of cars to convey the
fuel, and the men were being laid off
continually. This Btatement by Mr.
Sherman was corroborated by the memorandum isBued by tbe Frank board of
trade last fall, which Btated that the
mines in that district had been working only about half time. But those
who denounce the poor miners for tying

up the Industries of the WeBt had little
to say when those same Industries were
tied up by lack of foresight on the part
ol the railways.
This -constant laying off of men must
be taken into consideration when computing the wages which they receive.
If they receive $5 a day and are compelled to loaf half the time, they are
getting no hetter than 12.50 per day.
But the miners have, In walking out
before a strike order was issued by
their union and before tbe conciliation
board had a chance to enquire Into tho
matter, played into the hands of their
enemies. They have done Just what the
operators liava been trying to goad
them Into doing. In the jockeying for
position the operators have managed
to put tbe miners In a false light before the public. The notices posted of
reductions In wages, the refusal to deal
with President Sherman���these things
have the appearance of having been
done with the deliberate purpose of making the position of the men so Intolerable that they would quit work. Public
opinion counts for something ln labor
disputes nowadays, and lt is unfortunate that the men have put themselves
In the position they have.
But the matter has not gone so far
but what it can be remedied. The best
thing for the men to do under the circumstances Ib to go back to work and
wait for the rendering of a decision by
a conciliation board or an agreement
hy the parties interested. The men
know Just what they want, their demands are just, and if they do not get
what they want or something approximate thereto, lt will be time enough for
a strike order to be issued.
There are already signs of a break between the British Columbia and Alberta operators, and this may work to the
advantage of the men.
In this connection it may be said
that the British Columbia mining laws
are among the best on the continent,
laws which Alberta would do well to
copy. The miners believe that the
eight-hour bill of the laat session was
abandoned at the behest of the mine
operators. In plain words they believe
that the cards are stacked agalnBt them,
and there is one reason why they have
little faith in tbe new labor disputes act
or In any other law. They believe that
the laws are made for and by -capitalists
and that the workingmen can expect little justice where the Interests of the
two classes conflict.
Anothsr of ths 71  Reasons for "Semi-
ready" Tailoring Keeping at ths Top
The Semi-ready store has just received another large shipment of the
Semi-ready tailoring and they are very
much pleased with them. As usual,
the Semi-ready coats have those distinctive touches which were so highly
commended at 'he recent Tailors' convention held in Chicago.
"The remarkable thing about the
Semi-ready tailoring," said the salesman, "is that they always seem to get
ahead of the custom tailors in their
designs. The old-style ready-made
garment never amounted to much at
any stage by reason of their being always a season behind the merchant
tailor in their styles.
"The new roll collar on the Semi-
ready coats were pronounced one of the
most artistic creations at the Chicago
Garment exhibition in the spring, hut
as a matter of fact, these same models
were shown by the Semi-ready Company
last fall."
