an Increase ot 12 over tbe correspond'
Ing month of 1908. The Jobs In working
days was approximately 8S,i:tO, us compared wllh 45,8TB In May last year. The
Increase Is largely due to Ihe strike of

Railway Commission'* Verdict After Investigation of Western Conditions.
Ottawa, June 27.���Aa a result of the
investigation made by thu Dominion
Hallway Commission, through Mr. Dll-
linger, one of the traffic officers, in to
the blockade upon the Canadian Northern in tlie west last winter, that company hus doubled its orders of locomotives and equipment. The company
has shown its good faith by throwing
all Its hooks open for inspection and
lias convinced the commission thut it
baa done all In its power to secure the
needed equipment.
The commission has also looked Into
the posaiblitics of (lie contractors for
the equipment delivering the locomotives und cars, and believes that they
will do so in sufficient quantity to preclude lhe recurrence of any future
blockades on the Canadian Northern
The commission Is now Investigating
the equipment needs of the (Irani! Trunk
and Canadian Pacific, in order that
theso companies may lie able to cope
with lhe developing traffic of the Dominion.
The Railway Commission is now devising a system under which the railway companies will be able to report
permanently ou their equipment from
time lo time, and ln this way the board
will be In a position to know exectly
what the different companies can do in
handling traffic.
Generally speaking, the experts have
conte lu the conclusion that the railways in the west are duing all that
they possibly can tu increase their motive power, equipment and rolling slock
and will be ln a fairly good position to
bring out the wheat crop this fall. Tho
experts were not sntlsfled with the reports of the companies in regard , but
got the additional Information as to
where the orders had been placed and
when delivery was to he made to tho
companies. The experts are now getting
further Information from the Canadian
Ilesldes the matters mentioned the
board and IIb experts are dealing with
the questions of reciprocal demurrage
and diaft bills of lading. The consideration of the matter hns been leri over
until after August 1st, at lhe request
of thu Hankers Association and other
commercial bodies.
New Weapon for Bears.
Capt. Gore, who Is In town again after

Fifty Cbnts a Month
Evictions Cause Riots in
Rioters Arrested but Revenge taken
by Peasants ot Intrusive Amateur Photographers.
Cork, Juue 27.���Evictions on the
Leahy estate, at Kllmacowan and Gow-
lane, near Castletown, llerehaven. were
proceeded with yesterday, when ubout
a dozen holdings were visited.
A stubbcrn resistance waa offered,
noihwlthstaudlng lhe grotesquely large
aimed police force, to the number of
cloBe un 40 men.
This excessive army uf cunstabulary,
brought together at very considerable
cost, for the purpose of ejecting about
two dosen fatal leu or starving peasants,
has been seve.eiy commented upon,
and Instead ut' being instrumental in
the preservation of peace, had the effect
of driving the very poorest of Irish peasantry to desperation.
At the sight of tlie hated invaders the
women of tbe village lost their beads
completely. With shrill cries ln Irish
nnd English they rushed down on their
laggard menfolk and told them what
they thought of them for hanging back
Irom the fight.
Al last Uie men made a rush on the
police. Bul lulling rain aula' ihe sight
of men with rifles ure poor helps to
valor. The rush was a half-hearted
affair. They came splashing through
the muddy street, but stopped Irresolute when within a short distance of
Ihe poliee. ��
At Ihls Ihe women were terribly put
out, and rushed un the policemen themselves, courageous us suffragette*, shouting "English dogs.'' English towards."
They were promptly arrested, whereupon the shrieked as they were Iu Ibe
arms of the policemen. "Dirty English
cowards, would you hit a woman!" Tbe
policemen look it very well, used the
women with as little roughness us possible, and released them after.
Then occurred the most exciting incident. A party of villagers, about two
doaen altogether, had climbed the top
of some rocks overhanging the houses
where tbe evictions were to take place.
From here they commenced to hurl
down good-sized stones and heavy sticks.
A party of police stormed the rocks aud
had quite an eventful time before they
managed to reach Ihe top. Here thoy
fell upon the wild Irishmen, and after a
business-like tussle on the top of the
rocks, ln view of the whole excited village, managed to arrest the men.
There were a few comic interludes.
The army of police were followed by a
rearguard of amateur photographers,
anxious to gel snapshots. They were
fair game tu tbe infuriated villagers.
What they could not do to the police
they did to the cameras, and every
amateur who tried to get a picture
when the trouble was hottest had his
instrument promptly taken from him
aud danced upon. Fragments of plates
and cameras strewed the muddy road.
Political   Oiwussions   on   Elections   In
Cuba Ends in Duel.
Havana, June 27.���A duel was fought
Monday In the town of ('album's, Havana province, between Dlguel Hernandez and Gabriel Lopezgarcia, thu first
a partisan of Senor Zayas, and the other
a partisan of General Comes. The dispute began in a discussion about the
respective merits of the presidential
candidates when Garcia used strong
language against Zayas. Then they decided to fight It out. The weapons used
were revolvers and Garcia waa shot
through the left arm. The official report by Governor Nunez of Havana says
the cause of the fight was a political
discussion and that both men struggled
n long time with their fists before resorting to arms. Hernandez was a well
known leader In the revolution against
President I'alina. Garcia Is a prominent
Liberal also.

Grand Forks, June 27.���The chief
topic of conversation ln Grand Forks
today Is who will be tbe next mayor of
Ibis city. The strong opposition that
Aldermun 8am Horner, N. D. Mcintosh
and James Hardy have shown to the
salary by-law at the last session of the
city council Is reported to be the result
of the mayor's action as a licensing
commissioner ln cancelling the hotel
license for the Grand Forks aud Square
hotels, as these three aldermen opposed
ihe mayor strongly on thla license question. Mayor Jeffsety Hummer says that
as mayor he feels that be Is entitled
to a salary of $400 for his year's services as mayor,-and this salary question
waa one of the nidln planks in his platform when he west before the municipal electorate last January. It Is intimated today -that a representative
deputation of the ratepayer* will call on
ex-Mayor Hammer and try and persuade
him to withdraw his resignation, but It
Is extremely doubtful It he will do so.
This Is the second term of office for
Mayor Hammer, and while his administration Is somewhat distasteful to a
minority of tbe citizens It Is generally
conceeded that he Is tbe best mayor
Grand Forks has ever had, and for this
reason an effort will be made to have
him replaced in office.

Sproule's Charge Against
Orange Grand Raster Says They Take
Tolls oa Contracts, aad Even
on Recommtfldations.
Calgary, June 27.���In an interview
this afternoon. Dr. Sproule, M. P., sovereign grand master of the Orange
Lodge of Canada, made un attack upon
tbe French members of parliament,
charging them with selling patronage,
charging ror appointments and grafting
In the most open way. Dr. Sproule.
when asked about tbe election, said
that Sir Wilfrid Laurier had promised
or half promised that there would be no
election until after another session. He
did not place much faith in that statement, however, for he bad noticed that
the premier did not always keep his
promises, and the matter of elections
would be a matter of expediency. He
did not know that it would be expedient for an election to be held before
the coming session, but he doubted.
The Interviewer asked if It waB a fact
that French members opposed an early
appeal to the country; Dr. Sproule said
it was so. It was always so. French
members liked the sessional indemnity.
"But," said he, "that is only a small
part of it. The sessional Indemnity is
only a fraction of what comes to the
French member*. By selling patronage,
by holding up contractors, by selling
recommendations to office. French members make many times more out of
parliament than the sessional allowance
comes to."

81. Petersburg, June 37.���The Emperor today accepted the resignation of
Charles Von Schwansbach, the comptroller of the empire and leader of the
reactionary wing in the cabinet in the

Brutal Murder of Young Foreigner by
Companion for Vary Small
Sum of Monty.
Kenora, June 27.���Tbe district of
Rain River has not had many sensational
cases, and the murder case now before
ihe assizes haa aroused great curiosity
throughout " the district The man
charged with murder, William H. Paul,
was arraigned this afternoon on the
charge of murdering a young man
named Henry Shelling, near Pine Wood
on the Rainy River on November 30th
last. The crime allow* muck deliberation and brutality. The prisoner, Paul,
is a young man of about 21 years and
an American. Shelling, the murdered
man, ia of about the same age and It
appears from the evidence that both
of them came over from tbe states to
the town of Rainy River looking for
work. Shelling, who was a German,
was apparently a prudent living young
man, and for a short time got work
with the lumber company at Rainy
River and from them got a check for
about (20. Besides this he also had
about $150 with him In American bill*.
On tbe 30 of November, Paul, in company with the deceased, called at the
farmhouse of one McCarthy and stated
that they were on their way back to
Minnesota. McCarthy having some
cedar to cut in the vicinity of Plnewood
aaked them to do the work and they
went to see the timber. On their way
they dropped into different stores and
farmhouses and their journey to the
woodlot of McCarthy is traced by the
enquiries they made aa they strayed
from one point to another on the Rainy
River until they finally reached the
homestead ot a Mr. Manning, about a
mile from the McCarthy place. After
this they are not again seen together,
but the crown will endeavor to prove
lhat Paul brutally murdered his companion with a pair of skates.
Paul was Been returning from this
direction, buying a shirt from a storekeeper named Procter at Plnewood,
which he changed in the store for the
one he was then wearing and which Is
seen to be stained with blood from the
shoulder to the elbow. Then, In Ralney
River, he cashed a check made in favor
of Shelling for 121, and with a $100 bill,
changed at the Bank of Commerce, paid
his own bill and that of Shelling.

of defeated candidate. There was not
a Dominion or Ontario general election
in over 20 years in which Mr. Aylesworth was "saertt.ct*d at the altar" for
his party. To one who has suffered so
much, much may  be forgiven.
Mr. AyU-sworth Is talking a great deal
now. In defence of some of his late
colleagues, who need not be named
since tbe? are dead politically, he recently attacked the private life of a Canadian statesman long dead. The attack
was tik> low for comment even by the
LU.eral  press.
lint Mr Aylesworth'!. hatred of Tory,
ism was not yet appeased. He has resurrected the Family t'ompaet for execration, an institution io long dead thai
its career has for 2o years lit .mi taught
to school children as a part of early
Canadian history. Of Mr Aylesworth s
slaying of the slain, the Toronto News
say i;
"Mr. Aylesworth continues his assaults on the Family Compact. At Newmarket he attacked that unfortunate
group of political reactionaries with
great ardor and enthusiasm. The graves
said not a word in reply. So far as can
be ascertained, the feeling in North
York is against the Family Compact.
Mr Aylesworth's chances of re-election,
therefore, are excellent. It was time
that ihe nuisance of modern problems
was put down, and the attention of the
people turned to the Family Compact,
whose mischievous doings have been
neglected far too long The Dean of
the Faculty of Liberal History is going
backward with great energy, and the
Tory Loyalists of IS 12 may find, if they
are not careful, that their epitaphs will

If anything weit" required to convince
those who still doubted of the utter degradation of tho Ottawa Machine, it is
provided in more than abundance by bj
the line of argument adopted by the
leading Libera] organs in tht' Baet, and
as a matter of course by the
lesser literary lights ol the party
thoughtout the country. While
persisting, with eyes and hands
uplifted towards Heaven, against
the Iniquity of the Tory press in
exposing the wrong-doing of ministers
of the crown* their only reply, evidently
deliberately recognized by themselves
us such, is a dead-tut agalnat two Conservative members, George E. Foster
and O. w. Fowler.
We do not propose to inflict on our
readers any fuither discussion of the
acts of those two gentlemen in relation
with their private business.. All the
facts are known to the public and
placed in the rucst unfavorable If gut
possible by a partisan commission, pre
sided over I
a partizan Judge and di
rected by the Hon. A. H. Aylesworth.
Mr. Foster has replied and his reply
has been accepted hy the people for
whom he was acting, the only people
who ate concerned, it is easy for those
who can see only from the outside tn
Bay that it was very wrong of Mr. Foster, as a trustee, to risk other people's
money in Speculative invetsment. The
fact remains that Mr Foster wus chosen
hy the shareholders tn manage those
funds, and that his management resulted In profit to those concerned.
But, even if Mr. Foster and Mr.
Fowler were as guilty as the Machine
press tries to represent, while they are
members of the opposition, that concerns only the electors of their respective constituencies. They are responsible to their own.   But a cabinet min
ister, an official advi&er of the crown,
is responsible tor his public acts to the
whole country, and. which i& of far
greater importance, the prime minister
is responsible for all his colleagues.
Since H. R. Emmerson ceased to be
a   member  of   the   Dominion   cabinet
though he  remains a  member of  the
House of Commons,   ihe   Conservative
press has no further interest in his ca-
reer, except to record the proceedings
of a trial which has aroused some degree of public interest.   The Conservative prea* \a not houuding either Clifford Sifton or Charles  Hyman.    Once
they   ceas-ed, ,to   t*   ministers pf the
crown the privileges of private life are
- d to them.
The   indictment   against  Sir Wilfrid
l-aurier. his government and party   is
no: of the dishonesty or immorality of
private   luembeta,   -.'  MMtaJ  ministers, or even oi halt the cabinet.    It Is
that the whole represenutioo of that
part]   ir:   partbuaeaat,   c*>an;ierjinced   if
not inspired by Sir Wilfrid himself, has
conspired   to   suppress   Jcnovledge   of
nauis upon the public, to eo*iv)oc.e -.hem

knowingly the receivers of stolen goods,
and their  conduct   Is  shameJess.y  de-
fended   by   a   subsidized   and   servi 1-j
press from Halifax w Victoria.
That Is the indictment laid against
the I-aurier government by tbe Conservatives, and the only reply is a personal
attack upon two Conservative member*,
surely they are presuming too far on
gullibility even of their own flock.
cannot expect that such a reply
will satisfy the rank and file of Canadian Liberals. Tbe fate of Mercier and
of Koss should teach them better if
ihey were capable of learning anything.
A. It. Aylesworth, at one time a lead-
Dg member of the bar of Ontario, was
summoned to Ottawa by the leader of
iiis party to strengthen a cabinet painfully lacking In Intellect.
Mr. Aylesworth has had a long po-
1 'tlcal career already, although his par
rainentary career has not been long.
It is doubtful If any other Canadian politician has so often enjoyed the position
The Dominion Day celebration committee has done its work well, and has
arranged a very attractive programme
for the two days, sufficiently diversified to gratify all tastes. It only remains now for the citizens generally to
support the committee by patronizing
the sports, and by beautifying their
premises day and night, so as to make
the city as attractive as possible to the
many visitors who are certain to be
here. There cannot be other than general approval of the work of the committee on water sports. Nelson has an
unrivalled sheet of water which is its
chitf asset among its -scenic attractions
and among its means of recreation. It
would be folly to fall to draw visitors'
attention to ft. It Is to be hoped that
arrangements can be made to let all
who wish have an opportunity to witness It.

which the flames shoot forth like beacons,   it Is a weird and terrible sight.
"Settlers and prospectors arc everywhere escaping before the flnmcs. Most
of them have burled their camps and
supplicB and dynamite. It Is feared,
however, tbat In their eugerness to get
away uonie may not have hud time to
bury fhi'lr dynamite, making tremendous-) explosion certain.
"Tbe character of the country, the
absence of all but the most primitive
trails, and IU distance from tbe railway, inakiH (he position of some of tbe
prospectors very hazardous, and cauues
fear for Iheir safety. No news of nny
fatalities, however,, has yet been
burned. The men who were nt work on
my claim were thoroughly alarmed, and
refused to go back even a short distance with me.
"Ultimately I hope the loss to the
province wlirnot be as serious as is
generally thought. The timber destroyed Is not the valuable kind,, mostly jackplne. It* destruction will enable
iii(> proHpectorH to get at the minerals
more easily, although a great temporary
inconvenience���und In many cases severe want���may be experienced. Some
bave had all their Kiipplics and equipment completely destroyed, and hove no
money lo recoup themselves."
Mr. Gamey la not inclined to think
tbe firea could be Incendiary. "Such a
terrible crime ia scarcely credible," he
said. He recognized in this exceptionally dry season they might be easily
started accidentally, either by the failure to properly quencli camp Area or
the carelessness of foreign and Ignorant
workmen utflUfl railways
Hon. Mr. Cochrane, minister of lands
and mines, is busily seeking to circumvent lhe fires. Special rangers have
been promptly despatched to James.'
Smyth and Tudhope townships, and
special officers npjwinnted in charge to
assist Chief Fire Ranger S. C. Macdon-
ald. Telegraphic reports of the exact
condition of affairn have been asked for
immediately from all the districts, and
these are reaching Mr. Aubrey White,
the deputy minister, with increasing
Hangers on the T. & N. O. railway report no serious damage, except in the
Gillies Limit (the smaller). Fires started at several points, but they were all
put out promptly, and none spread. The
rangers have the entire section under
Sault Ste. Marie rangers report no
great damage In their agencies. Ugly
fires broke out in De Roche ami Hodgins
townships, but the Sault company succeeded in confining them to the old cutting, and ft rained heavily on Tuesday,
removing Immediate danger.
Fire Ranger Hector McDonald, from
the Thessalon dlatrict, reports that considerable alarm was experienced for
some daya, but a heavy rain on the 17th
fnst. saved the situation.
From Chapleau, on the C. P. R., the
Beat of the regtorted fires, there is silence. No message to the department
has got through.
Rangers at Webb wood and along the
Spanish river report a very serious forest Are raging in Dunlop township, and
that the timber in Shakespeare township ia also on fire. It ia spreading
rapidly. There has been no rain in this
district since June 3rd.
Up to noon today these were all the
reports received.
"80 far as we can learn from the
rangerB," Mr. White told the correspondent, "no life has been sacrificed,
and the fullest inquiry is being made
wherever there was special reason to
fear danger.
"So far aa yet learned, too, there has
been no pine damaged on tbe Crown reserve, which is being fully manned and
watched by special officers."
The department ia sending out instructions to all rangers to be exceedingly diligent. It is possible the force
may be increased.

Children's Concert.
The closing exercises by the children
of St. Joseph's school, held in the opera
bor.se last night, were as well attended
and successful as the pains-taking prep
arations for it deserved. All the nuiii
hers were very creditably given, but the
most popular performances were the
dla o.irues, action songs and musical
drills. The young performers showed
not only thorough training, but Id many
cases, genuine talent.
What the Advance Man Says.
An investment of 110,000 represents
thj must spectacular minstrel tirst-part
ever offered by the Dandy Dixie Min-
stles of 4U colored performers, who will
be seen at Sherman's opera house on
Monday, July 1st, with the same big
company of ail-star performers and olio
features which played the Wistaria
Grove at the New York theatre roof garden all of last summer. This monster
organization is-headed by Campbell
Bros., whose inimitable song parodies
enteitain'-d New York theatergoers for
No   Pominion   Day Cricket.
It is not at all likely that there will
be any cricket match in Nelson in connection with the Dominion Day celebration. The matter will be decided at a
meeting of the Cricket Club to be held
this evening. A. W. Dyer, secretary,
t-xplains that the cricket club asked the
sports committee for a very small aj>-
propriation. much less than the actual
cost of bringing a visiting team. They
asked for the reservation for them of
the recreation grounds late Monday af
ternoon and early Tuesday morning.
Even this could not be granted, on account of junior baseball, horse and
mule racing and other miscellaneous
events. Mr. Dyer thinks the executive
Is certain under the circumstances to
turn down the proposition to play on a
part of the grounds while other events
are in progress. The club made an expensive trip last year and may make
another this year. They naturally feel
aggiieved at the very slight consideration shown them. It is unfortunate that
Nelson has only one recreation grounds.
As a rule people who enjoy cricket
don't care about junior baseball or mule
