New York  Palace Donated by Andrew
Carnegie to Members of
Three Institutes.
New York, April 17.���The handsome
building In Fortieth street, opposite
Ilryant Park, which is to be the home of
three national engineering societies and
for the erection of which Andrew Carnegie gave $1,500,1)00, was thronged
with visitors today. It was the second
and big day of the dedication exorcises.
Those in attendance included many of
the famous European scientists who
came over to attend the opening of the
Carnegie Institute In Pittsburg.
Today's programme Included addresses by the presidents of founder
societies and the presentution of the
John Fritz gold medal to Dr. Alexander
Graham lie]] and of olher medals for
distinguished service to Ralph W. Pope,
Dr. F. R. Hutton and Dr. R. W. Raymond.
The throe national associations thnt
are to find homes fn the new building
arc the American Institute of Mining
Engineers, the American Institute of
Mechanical Engineers nnd the Society
of Intellectual Engineers. The three
have become affiliated under the name
of thc United Flnglneering Societies.
There are In reality two buildings,
one facing Thirty-ninth street and the
other on Fortieth street, the two being
connected by a passageway. One building is to serve ns a club home for the
members, while the other houses the
great workshop und laboratory with
the library-room for the throe scientific
societies. The library Is to be thc lnrg-
est purely technical library yet guth-
ored together, designed especially to
furnish the engineers wllh the tools of
their trade so far as books may he thus
designated. Then, there are In addition
rooms for research, for experiment, for
drafting, each organisation having Us
own particular apartment. Iii connection
with these Ib the greal auditorium,
lnrge enough to conveniently sent tiny
number of persons brought together for
scientific purposes.
Mr. Carnegie donated outright 11.000,-

Will Attempt Improvement ol City
as Well as Advertising���Want
Constitution -and Bylaws.
The deferred annua] meeting or the
20,000 club was held ln tho board ot
trade rooms lasl night with 26 members
present. Reorganization was effected,
new officers were elected and a committee was appointed to draw up constitution und bylaws. The appointment
of a secretary, location of office and
Plans of work were left to the new executive.
C. G. Reeder, of Spokane, addressed
lhe club on the subject of Kootenay
river land reclamation.
The meeting came to. order about 9
o'clock with the following members
present; T. G. Procter, F. M. Chadbourn ,L. B. DeVeber, G. G. McLaren,
H. Williams, A. Lean, H. Wright, J.J.

Gillett, F. J. Deane, A. W. Dyer, M. S.
Parry, E. W. Wlddowson, R. Q. Joy.
T. G. Procter, president, opened the
meeting with a few remarks on the
good work accomplished by the club,
lie thougbt there was still work to be
done to justify the existence of the club.
The appointment of a secretary was the
most important busineaB in hand, and
he thought should be left to the new
lie gave a brief financial statement
ns follows: revenue during 1906, $1,908.-
75; expenditure, $l.!iuli.:iii; balance,
$2.39. Amount subscribed for now
folder, $1,055, of which there is collected, $255; expended from this sum
for ordinary use, $160. Other small
sums have been spent In connection
with the preparation or the rolder.
There is now in bank to the club's
credit, $75.
C. G. Reeder, of Spokunc, then addressed the club, by permission, on the
subject of Kootenay river land reclam
a tion.
Mr. Reeder rehearsed the familiar ar-
gumenta for reclamation, and pointed
out the advantages to the city ot Nelson by the settlement or nil that land,
uf which, he said, Nelson must continue to be the commercial centre und
He then addressed himself to the objections that have been urged. He asked
his hearers to trust to the Dominion
and provincial governments to prevent
any change In the water level ot the
West Arm or the main Kootenay lake,
either In the direction or flooding or
or making any part of the outlet less
navigable than now.
He stated that all that he and his
associates wanted to do was to prevent
thc bucking up of water above Kootenay Landing by widening the outlet at
the Narrows and flrst rapids.
This, he said, was an engineering
project, nnd he assured the meeting
that if engineers declared the project
dangerous to Nelson ln any way, it
would be abandoned.
In reply to J. M. Lay be suid that he
did not hope lo entirely save the lands
rrom flooding In such circumstnnces as
the Hood or 1894. Hut the possibility of
raising crops In normal yenrs would
give the lands a value.
After answering some otbor questions Mr. Reeder withdrew.
The chairman then stated his opinion
that the new folder would be paid for
out or runds already collected or promised. _ _.
He then culled on E. K. Beeslun to
give the results of his vlsil to similar
organisations In the coast cities.
Mr Ueeston repeated the views expressed by him In a recent interview
with The Daily Canndlan. He emphasized the courtesy extended to him by
the Tourist Associations of Victoria and
Vancouver. He spoke of their well- appointed offices, permanent secretaries
and assistnntB, abundance of views and
descriptive pamphlets, the associations
successful efforts nt civic improvement,
and the generous financial assistance
given by the city councils.
Mr Heeatnn's final advice was He
sure vou have a city in every way worth
showing before you advertise It.'
His remarks and advice were warmly
endorsed by Mayor Gillett and F. A.
Starkey. ,      , . . _
The chairman advocated retaining
the name of 20,000 Club nnd was supported by J- M. Lay and M. 8. Parry.
A vote was taken and the suggestion
The location of offices was left to the
executive committee.
A motion of E. W. Wlddowson, seconded by W. H. Jones, tliat a constitution und by-laws be drafted was adopted. Mr. Jones thought the club's past
proceedings bad often boen most unbusinesslike, and Irregular. The drafting of lhe constitution and by-laws was
entrusted to a committee composed of
MesBin. Deusy, Jones, Dyer, Ueeston
und McMorris, to reiiort at the next
The following officers were then
elected; honorary president, Mayor Gillett; president, T. G. Procter; vice
president, E. F. -Gigot; treasurer. J. M.
Lay; executive committee, Messrs. Annable, Joy, Deane, Deasy, Ueeston, Dyer,
McMorris, Nelson, Jones, Wright, Webb
and Wlddowson.
Mr. Procter promised to conduct a
vigorous campaign.
An audit of accounts was ordered, the
auditor to be appointed by the executive committee.
The executive committee will meet

Notorious   London   Crook   Helped   to
Emigrate to Toronto���Dominion
Officials Slow.
Toronto, April 17. ��� Isaac Isaacs,
whose reputation as a bad crook arrived in Canada almost as soon as he
did, came up In the police court yesterday. The Toronto authorities are
trying to arrange to return the prisoner
to England. He pleaded for his liberty
yesterday, and said that the Prisoners'
Aid Society in England sent him to this
country. He reported to the police ln
the Old Land just before sailing, and
they made all the arrangements to get
rid of him. The fact that the authorities were using Canada as a dumping
ground did not move the crown to
"The Prisoners' Aid Society sent him
out here, and the authorities are now
sending him back again," announced
Mr. Corely.
The magistrate pointed out that
Isaacs had been in jail for three weeks
and asked what was causing the delay.
"The department at Ottawa Ib to
blame." replied the chief inspector.
"The matter has been before them for
some time, but no action Ib yet reported."
Col. Denlson said that something
must be done, and lf Isaacs were not deported before next Thursday he would
receive his liberty. The magistrate's
view was that the man. even with his
bad record, should not be kept in custody to accommodate the department at
The Dominion government officials
have caused a great deal of trouble to
those who look after the criminals In
the country. The delays and trouble
which precede the deportation of undesirable citizens, make It extremely difficult to get rid of the criminals who
come across to try their luck in a new
"field ot endeavor."

Russia Prepares Blow at
Orand Duchy
Empire oi Czar Saf f alng from Tenor-
ism, Rebellion and Famine-Arms
for Intending Strikers.
London, April 17.���A correspondent
of tbe Evening News declares that he
ls able to throw light on tbe methods
pursued by the Russian terrorists in securing arms and ammunition. He says
that lt ls the duty of no fewer than
12 revolutionary organizations, possessing headquarters in London, to assist
political refugees and to provide arms
and ammunition, the bitter being always required. The demand at the
present time Is considerably tn excess
of the supply.
Something like 2,000,000 rllles and
1,000,000 revolvers are wanted to arm
the masses of the population, as the
next general strike will possibly be declared at an early date. Every market
in the world ls being tapped In the purchase of weapons. The buyers are carefully distributed throughout the United
States, Oreat Britain and the European
continent. AIL weapons are first sent
to England, where they are shipped ln
water-tight cases, bearing false labels,
on board the steamships that run to
the Baltic and Black Bea ports. As the
vessels near the coast the cases are
thrown overboard at places that have
been marked by small buoys, and then
are easily secured by the revolutionists.
London, April IT.���A despatch to the
Daily News from St. Petersburg Bays
that conditions in Finland have caused
the government anxiety for some time,
lt is known that large quantities of
arms have been Imported there, and the
government believes tbat a revolutionary militia is being secretly formed.
The new Diet, elected by universal (including women) suffrage, is overwhelmingly Socialist. The existence of such
frankly radical people under Russian
rule is not agreeable to the government, which considers their influence
unhealthy. There are undoubtedly some
people who consider that Finland ought
to be the base of a Russian revolution,
but a majority of the Finns, having
gained the restoration of home rule, do
not wish to Interfere in Russian affairs.
St. Petersburg, April 17.���There are
grave reasons for believing that the
government is planning an armed occupation of Finland and a blockade of
the coast ln order to prevent the landing of arms. If the plan is carried out
lt ls expected that Sweden .which possesses Borne Islands fringing the coast
of Finland, will remain neutral, giving
Russia a free hand. Possibly the design is only to be executed ln the event
of tbe Douma being dissolved.
Lods, April 17.���Two buildings were
damaged by bombs ln the suburb ot
Huluty this morning, but there were no
casualties. Later an unidentified man
began shooting at some young Jews,
killing two of them and wounding three.
The Jews are panic-stricken.
London, April 17.���Dr. Kennard, commissioner of the society of Friends, who
was sent to investigate the Russian
famine, writing from Samara, April 3,
"There are 20,0000,000 people distributed in the south-eastern provinces of
Russia, who cannot live to see another
harvest without aid."
In Samara, he added, thousands are
dying and 700,000 are starving. Of the
latter only 372,700 are getting relief,
one meal In twenty-four hours. As a
meal Is only two pounds or bread and
a bowl or soup, this according to the
commissioner means dying by degrees.
Even this meagre dole in countless Instances Is divided among many mouths.
There are only sufficient runds on hand
to last until May 1st, whereas money ts
needed until the end ot July, when the
harvest will bring relief.
The commissioner especially appeals
for canned milk. He says there are
300,000 children ln Samara province
who have no milk and are forced to eat
coarse bread made ot acorns, powdered wood and cucumbers, resulting ln
thousands or deaths and much disease.
In conclusion the commissioner appeals to the Anglo-Saxons tor $2,500,000
to save "twenty millions or human beings who are dying lingering deaths,"
irom starvation.

Mining Co. at its smelter at Trail, which

Into In 1906 between the two corporations. This was done although there
was still a considerable tonnage to go

this action was taken owing to the -unsettled labor conditions which prevail.
French Valet Robs New Yorker In Paris
���Then Crowes Atlantic.
New York, April 17.���With the arrival of the North German Lloyd liner
Kron Prinz Wllhelm, which docked last
night in Hoboken, It became known
that Sidney Smith, real estate broker of
this city, had been robbed of $36,000 in
Paris. Mr. Smith was travelling on the
continent with a party of friends and
while stopping at a hotel in Paris,
placed $20,000 in cash, and jewels
valued at $16,000 in a steel box which
he kept in his room. The police of
Paris were notified and they began a
search for a valet who had been employed for the party. They traced him
to the southern part of France and
were close upon him when they found
���he had booked passage for New York
on a slow, second-class steamer. Mr.
Smith said that the man was now in
this city.
Bay of Islands Fishermen Carrying Appeal to Supreme Court of
St. John's, April 17.���The supreme
court yesterday resumed consideration
of the appeal by the Bay of Islands fishermen from the penalty of $600 or the
alternative of serving three months in
prison, imposed in November by a magistrate at Bay of Islands, npon their being convicted ot working on the American schooner Ralph Hall during the
herring Ashing season. The magistrate
ruled that such work was contrary to
the provisions of the Colonial Bait Act
In February, when the case was appealed, the supreme court sent a communication to Boston and Olouchester
to take testimony as to the terms under
which the men were hired and this was
read ln court today. Sir James Winter,
who at. different times has been premier, attorney general and supreme
court judge, appeared for the appellants wltb Mr. Howley, who formerly
was the sole counsel for the fishermen.
Sir James Winter withdrew the former
plea that the fishermen were entitled to
rank as Inhabitants of the United
States and entitled to all privileges
under the treaty of 1818, and claimed
that they were hired servants ot American fishermen entitled under the treaty
to fish. It ls understood that Sir James
was retained by American interests ln
tbe case and that the previous plea of
the appellants was withdrawn at their
direction. The new feature ot the situation has created much Interest here.
The argument will be resumed Friday

of Legislature.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Victoria, April 17.���Yesterday afternoon's session or the legislature waa
taken np mainly with discussion of the
Land Act Amendment Act. Dr. King,
member for Cranbrook, op-posed the proposed Increase of the royalty on timber. He charged that the increase
would not affect speculators at all, but
would greatly reduce the profits of the
lumbermen. He also urged that since
the change would not be effective until
Jan. 1st, 1807, there would be little loat
by deferring legislation until next session.
The bill creating a British Columbia
court of appeals, and the bill making
the Doyle timber scalse official tor the
territory'east ot the Cascader,, were
given second reading.

Countaaa Da Jo-temps Escapes Poverty
and Disgrace by Suicide.
Paris, April 17.���The Countess De
.lotempe committed suicide by /hooting
herself with a revolver ln this city yesterday. The countess was a Russian,
27 yeara old, and possessed of considerable beauty. She was married two years
ago against the wlahes of her parents
to the Count De Jotemps. The -couple
were continually In financial straits.
Last summer the count was arrested on
a charge of pawning -certain jewels
that had been sent htm on approval by
a Paris dealer, and was held in custody
for two months. Upon his release the
countess went to Russia, presumably
with the object of appealing to her parents for aid. On her return to Paris
she appeared most despondent and
made no attempt to conceal her desperate situation. The fact that her husband, after his arrest, was ostracised
by society, added greatly to her anguish
and lt is believed helped to unhinge her

The coal mining Industry In the Hast
Kootenay and Alberta fields is now at a
stand still. The mlnea of all lho companies are Idle, and until a settlement
can he reached, or a new Foroe of miners Induced to take the places of those
who have walked out, thero will be no
coal  produced in  those lieids.
The question Is a public one, and uo
more serious crisis Industrially can
arise in British Columbia, certainly'not
In Kooteuay. The siik-Iluss of Nelson,
Trail and the Boundary are dependent
upon tlle Kasl Kootenay and Alberta
lieids for etial and ctsko. ii they cannot
get it, they cannot operate,
it the smelters cannot accept ur*.- Ito*
treatment, lew or the mines will continue to lie operated, ami so, thf sinks
111 the coal Ileitis may put a stop to the
mining and smelting Industries ,oi'
Kootenay and Houndary.
It is patent, therefore, Unit the good
offices of governments, boards of trade
and any other organisations of Individuals who can exert any Influence tin the
contending parties, cannot act too soon
ir Industrial disaster is to be averted.
That is the outstanding feature ot the
case that appeals first and most to the
There are other features, however,
which should not be Ignored in nuy public discussion of the question. The mln
ers assert that their chief, almost their
sole grievance is the annoying uncertainty ol the scale or wages on which
they are working, antl the arbitrary
making ol new rules ant! regulations, in
regard to which, Ihey allege, they art-
not consulted, antl ol whicli no notice ir.
given until they are actually In force.
Por this Btate of affairs they, rightly or
wrongly, hold one man responsible, G.
G. 8. Llndsey, manager of lhe Crop's
Nest Pass Coal Company,
It Is probably impossible for any one
not on tho ground and In the confidence
of both operators and employees to
judge of the merits of lhe case, but undoubtedly there is in the minds or the
ctsal miners a deep seated distrust or
Mr. Llndsey whioh does moro than anything else to prevent the restoration of
guild relations between employers and
If thore Is any ground for that distrust the retirement of Mr. Llndsey can-
nut  come too soon.
li lias often been proclaimed that it
Is Intolerable that thc industrial prosperity of llrltlsh Columbia should be at
iho mercy of ;i union of cosmopolitan
laborers who can go on strike without a
grievance antl paralyze every industry,
wil liinii any material loss to themselves. Thul is quite true and just,
but it is at least equally Intolerable
that llie whole counlry shoulil suffer by
the dictatorial and arbitrary acts of
une man.
The tithor feature ul the case, which
has its comic us well as Its serious side,
is the demonstration of ihe utter futility of Mr. Lemieux' new Conciliation
Act. Mr. Lemieux undoubtedly meant
well, but his bill hns, besides tlle special
defect that It provides no machinery for
iin iswn enforcement, lho general weakness of all such measures. Laws may
b.- passed forbidding strikes and lockouts, proscribing methods of arbitration,
and fixing penalties fur failure to comply. But it lias invariably boon found
that Buch laws can be onfurcetl only
against iho owners. They have property which can be attached for damages
when thoy aro convicted of fault. Hut
no law has yet been dratted whicli can
compell llio obedience of a labor union,
much less of the Individual inonibeis
who make up the union, il is easy to
pass a law declaring that laborers who
ssrike without waiting for arbitration
are guilty of an offence antl subject to
lino or Imprisonment, but no adequate
machinery has yet been devised for collecting such linos or imprisoning the
The 20,000 Club has reorganized
with sonio show of interest and even
enthusiasm and has declared Its Intention of conducting n vigorous campaign
during the coming season to attract
both tous-ists and permanent residents
to Nolson and its vicinity. The retention of a ridiculous name���20,000 Club-
may not prove a very serious handicap,
although   lt   will   undoubtedly   deter
some from taking an active pnrt In Its
work. The chief contributions to last
evening's deliberations were made by
Mr. Proctor untl Mr. Beeston, Mr. Procter's plea for a live secretary whoso
whole time will bo available Iui* tbo
work, nnd of course reasonably paid,
must lie granted lf anything is tu bo
dtsiio. Antl Mr. Heeston's advice to Improve and beautify iho city In every
possible way before Inviting tourists
wns equally wise, li is regrettable that
so small a proportion of the merchants
and properly owners of tho city, the
ohlal beneflciarleB by nny Improvement
Hint may be effected, were present Tho
absence or the groal majority Indicates
either Indifference to the promotion uf
their own mid the general Interest, ur
else distrust of tlie efficiency of tliu
means proposed.
The agitation in northwestern Ontario for such a division of the province
as will give self-guvornnicnt to .the
newer part lias so far attracted little
attention in official circles, or among
the general public outside the tllstiict in
whicli ItHMia arisen. On general principles it will be condemned, Canada bus
nt present, more legislators and legislation per thousand of population than
any other part of lho British Umpire.
Legislation is nearly us costly as litigation and those who pay aro not in all
cases satisfied thui they are getting thetr
moneys worth. It is probably but a
passing phase. The same thing lias
happened more than once ln British
Columbia. For a long time tho people
of the Lower Mainland regretted tholr
union with Vancouver Island which
then held the balance ut power. As
late as a few years ago there were
sume who complained tliat Kootanay
was unfairly treated hy coast politicians
antl would be better off as a separate
provlnoe. New Ontario will soon -recover from its growing pains.
The announcement of the reduction
of postage rates on British papers and
magazines is one of the most welcome
received by Canadians lor a long lime,
untl one for which all credit will be accorded to Mr. Lemieux. Canada Is still
too thinly populated, and her population
too scattered, to permit of the profitable
production pf magazines to suit all
classes, and consequently for some
lime to come our periodical literature,
both light and seriuus, must be Imported, It is a greal relief to know that
decent publications may now be received on reasonable terms and llinl lho
market will not bo givon over lo such
disgusting productions as Ainalle'a,
Munsey's, tho Smart Sel, and their like,
and to tlle turgid rhetoric of Collier's
and Everybody's.
The scheme for the reclamation of
hind in the valley of Kootonay river,
In Idaho and in the Kootenay by widening the outlet of Kootonay lake, has
been before the public of Nelsou for a
long time. Thero Is general agreement
that the reclamation of the lands would
be a good thing antl probably beneficial
to Nelson. The only objection Is the
possible danger to navigation on the
West Arm and a general change of
water levels. Those questions cannot
be sel tied by public meetings but only
hy competent and responsible engineers. Until such engineers report that
the scheme Is feasible, physically and
financially, and involves no danger to
eny of Nelson's Interests in tho West
Arm, public tliscussiun Is futile.

Winnipeg, April 17.���That the pro-
piiBal to form u new province In the
northwestern pari of Ontario la an assured fact Is the opinion of Thomus
McDonald of Enio, Ont., who ls ln the
city on IsuslneBs, and who speaks Interestingly on tho Bubject of tho contemplated changes In the geograhpy of the
old province.
"This formation of a new province la
a popular topic in the northern districts," said Mr. McDonald, "and 1 feel
certain that It will result In the attainment of the object which waB projected
at the recent meeting held In Emo.
Sssine of Ihe Ontario members have
been expressing various views on the
matter, aud profess to look at It in an
indifferent spirit, hut they are not familiar wltii the conditions us 1 am, and
Ihey will be surprised at the dissatisfaction that exists when they commence
tu make investigations for themselves.
"We want to keep thla matter separated from polltlcn as much aa possible.
1'eople ln Nortbern Ontario of both political partlea dealre a change In the ail-
luiulatrutlou of utluira. They feel tbat
ins j bave beeu neglected. This neglect
may not bave beeu intentional, but it
hus beeu neglect Just the same, and the
people ol Noitbern Ontario do not propose to be tbe victim* any longer. Tney
will take things iuto their own hands,
and will endeavor to give themselves
what they have been relused from other
There Is one point which I wish to
deal with, however, and that la the
slutenient suggested by Ontario members of parliams'ut that there was a
sentiment displayed towards annexation
to Manitoba, i'nat phase of the problem
was uot mentioned at the meeting held
recently at Emo.
"it. li. Uamey has stated in an interview tliat the better class of population
Is satisfied with present conditions.
That is a matter of opinion. However,
Mr. Uamey's suggestion of a commission is along the line of Improvement
for which he should bu given credit.
Aa to tbe published statements of
Messrs. Aubin and Smyth that there Is
no feeling of discontent in their constituencies, we prefer to wait till the
people of these constituencies have
been heard from direct. 1 think when
Ihese reports have been made the local
members will reform their opinions.
Thc commute drafted at the Emo
meeting Is busy sending out circulars,
and it is expectod that the first general
meeting will bo called at an early date,
and othera will follow closely. Dr.
Smclllc's suggestion that he could not
sen how Emo could become the capital
of the new province is aside from the

"Regarding the causes which have
contributed to make the people dissatisfied, Mr. McDonald said there were
First there Is the matter of the grants
made to the veterans, which set apart
ICO acrea tn every square mile. These
grants are exempt from all taxee except the school levy for ten years, thus
Increasing the burdens which settlers
In pioneer districts have naturally to
undertake. I believe that the veterans
could have been taken care of In other
ways Just as satisfactorily as by the
plan hit on by the government. If fact
lf this land had been set apart for the
future assistance of education, and disposed of for that purpose, thers* would
have been no objection on the part of
tho pessple.
"At preBent, and so far as the government regulations are concerned, tho
school support Is accomplished almost
entirely by direct taxation, though recently the government has decided to
contribute something more substantial
In the way of grants.
"The government road from Fort
Francis to Ilalny Klver, approximately
fifty miles, constructed In 1876, haa
been left In an almost Impassable state
notwithstanding repated petltiona for relief. It Is no exaggeration to say that
thla road Is Impassable In the summer
season. Railway facilities are almost
an unknown quantity. The Canadian
Northern, the sole road running through
tlie district, gives a disgraceful service,
and this winter tlie labor of the settler
In thc woods taking out timber and
other products has produced no returns,
as the timber is lying at the sidings,
the road being unable or unwilling to
haul lt to the markets. Though the Ontario government pays a bonus to the
company, It has no control over the way
In which the transportation facilities
are to be carried out. All kinds of agitation has failed to secure an Improvement In this matter, and the people of
the district traversed by the railway
have practically been deprived of their
earning power this winter.
"We estimate tbat ln the area which
lt is proposed to organize Into a new
province there are 158,000 people,
qtiite sufficient to form a well-populated and prosperous province, offering
some facilities for the progress and advancement of those Inhabiting lt. The
movement Is one of the people by the
people and for the people. I have not
the least doubt that lt will bear fruit.
"It is a remarkable circumstance that
governments of Ontario, past and present, have evidently labored under the
Impression that the wealth and resources of New Ontario should be utilized
for the benefit and upbuilding of Old
Ontario. They have apparently given
no thought to the problems of the people who aro living In the New Ontario.
Such conditions hnve existed for many
years, but now the people are commencing to think for themselves, and are
botyimlng weary of seeing the wealth
of their country being utilized for the
benefit of the older portion of the province."

Shoemakers' Union.
The shoemakers of Nelsun have formed a union. This step whs deemed necessary on account of the increase in

There will be a slight advance in all
i ustom work, and the shoemakers look
to the public to sustain them in their
effort io put the business on a paying
basis. On that date all shoe stores will
dose at C in the evening, except on
Saturdays and days preceding holidays.
Fatal Accident at Procter.
While removing some sawdust Isaac
Nicks was caught in the belt of the
main drive wheel at the mill of the Cooperative Lumber Co,, at Procter yesterday, and was killed instantly. There
was no one present when the accident
occurred, but as soon as Mr. Nicks was
missed the whistle blew, and the machinery was stopped. Deceased was retarded one of the best sawyers in British Columbia, but he was always a little
venturesome, and it is feared that his
death was caused because he failed to
exercise due precaution in removing the
obstruction near the wheel. Isaac Nicks
was well on in years and spent all his
lifetime around sawmills. He was born
in Ingersoll. Ont., and thirty years ago
managed a sawmill at Hurford, Ont..
for the father of Postmaster Kane of-
Kaslo. He has lived ln Hritish Columbia
for a number of yeara and his death
a ill he mourned by many of the pioneers of the interior. The funeral take?
place at Kaslo tomorrow. ���*�����.
