Tomorrow, the nrst Sunday after
Trinity, Uj^e beginning of the long
period, nearly half the church year,

pusslon, resurrection and ascension,
and the fulfillment of Ills promise in
tho descent of the Holy Ghost. The

The gospel foi* the day contains the
difficult parable of Lazarus and Dives,
the suffering of Lazarus on eartli compensated hy Ills joy iu heaven, und the
Bolllsh luxury of Dives paid for hy eternal suffering. The two do not typify
merely, the rich and tbe poor, bill the
life of sellish indulgence and that of
self-abasement and denial.
The closing passage is full of catholic
significance. In reply io the plea, "Bui

Routing   LIberal-Conaervatfve   Meeting
Held  at Victoria  Last
(Specinl to the Dally Canadian.)
Victoria, June lfi.���The annual mooting of the IJheral-Conservative Association was held last evening in Instl-
tule hall, and was attended hy n large
and representative gathering���one of
the best In years. Considering the season of tho year and the fact that "there
was nothing," as the premier expressed It, "lo whet tho political appetite,"
It was very gratifying Indeed. One of
the satisfactory features of tho meeting was the unanimity which existed,
resulting In practically the re-election
of all the old officers und a most enthusiastic reception of the speakers.
The premier's address was one of his
beBt. It was a plain, straightforward
account of the stewardship of the government, now In the fourth year of office, nnd gave his reasons why it
should have the continued support of
tho electors of British Columbia. These
were baBed upon a record of fulfilled
promises, financial success and an honest and economical administrative record. Everywhere throughout the province there was dominant a note of confidence nnd of prosperity, and for that
the administrative po'ley of the government was largely responsible. Industrial development had been placed upon
a progressive basis, because tho people
who were backing Industry with effort,
and capital were no longer afraid   of
unstable political conditions and financial discredit. The premier dwelt In
glowing terms upon tlie outlook and
possibilities of the parts of the Interior
which he had recently visited, and reflected In hlB remarks th<; optimism
that pervaded the utmosphere everywhere. Mr. McBride made a splendid
Impression upon his hearers, and was
mosi heartily applauded throughout
In every respect the meeting of last
night was a bucccbs.

Insane Affliction Increases Every Year
Is Row Living Like Wild Animals
on Crumbs and Fruits-
Guards Terrified.
Vienna, June 16.���In well informed
quarters here It Is considered probable
that King Otto of Bavaria will soon be
deposed. When Prince Luitpold was
in Vienna recently he took part in a
discussion in court circles as to the
inadvlsabllity and absurdity of Bavaria
being ruled in the name of an insane
sovereign and of the Viennese courl
communicating, this view to the Bava-
rian government. Prince Luitpold, il
is understood, was assured that both
the German and the Austrian court circles approved the plan, for| some time
actively discussed in Bavaria, of mak
ing him the king. A change in the Bavarian constitution, however, would be
necessary before this could be done,
and it is doubtful if the diet would as
sent to the project.
King Otto, who was insane when he
ascended the throne 20 years ago, has
grown worse each year, and is now
living like a wild animal. He permits
nobody to approach him. His only
nourishment is bread crumbs and dried
fruit. He is In a frightful condition
from neglect, which his physicians and
custodians are unable to remedy because, according to monarchial tradition, they are not permitted.
Berlin, June 16.���A despatch from
Munich says that serious illness has
again taken hold upon mad King Otto
of Bavaria. By a peculiar coincidence
today happens to be the twentieth anniversary of King Otto's ascension to
the throne. Several years before he
succeeded his mad brother, King Laid-
wig II., Otto was afflicted with a most
dangerous form of mental trouble, and
for 20 years he has been hopelessly insane, the country being under the rule
of a regency. Ludwig ll.*was found
drowned -in Starbergen lake, on the royal estates. He had committed suicide.
Ludwig's form of insanity was an exaggerated passion for art. Otto's pas
slon is to kill. For 20 years his guards
have stood in dread of their lives while
on duty watching over their insane
luler. He is a man of gigantic stature,
with unkempt beard and wild eyes. His
pastime was shooting at peasants who
chanced lo pass within range of his
windows. It is said that he would) sit
at a window all through the day waiting for a chance to kill a peasant.

The United States was today beaten
In the doubles for the international
contest of the Davis cup, and thus lost
all chance of recovering tho trophy In
1906, tho British holders having won
Iho two singles yesterday, thus having

But Do Not  Hurry���There's Plenty of
Toronto, June 10.���At the annual
meeting of the Toronto Methodist conference Thursday. Rev. Drt. Carman,
genet al superintendent of the Methodist church in Canada, speaking of
cliurch union, said:
"I admire the statesmanlike course
of our Presbyterian brethren. They
have sent out to their people a simple
statement of the facts of the case, to
let the people mature their judgment
in the matter. That suits me entirely.
I think our Presbyterian brethren did
the good and right thing."
The speaker deprecated anything
like rush or hurry in the matter, and
said he would he sorry to see Methodists slacken their diligence or efforts
In anticipation of whnt  might be.

Provincial Curricula Preferred to Those
of Universities���Will Close
Next Week.
An important decision was made
last night by the board of school trus
tees in regard to the work of Nelson
high school. Since the organization of
the school In January, 1901, the curricula have been as various as the desires of the pupils, Involving increasing work for the staff. Hereafter the
work of the school will be limited to
the options allowed in the courses authorized by the provincial department
of education.
The board met last night at 8 o'clock
In the secretary's office. There were
present A. D. Emory, in the chair, Dr.
Hall and Dr. Arthur. The minutes
were read and approved.
The matter of the future standing of
non-resident pupils was deferred to a
special meeting.
A. Sullivan, principal of the public
school, drew attention to) the fact that
one of his staff had paid a substitute
teacher out of her own salary. On motion of Dr. Hall, It was resolved that
in cases of teachers' illness, the board
should provide substitutes for two
weeks, the motion being made to cover
the recent case.
C. M. Fraser, principal of the high
school, was present by request to advise as to the choice of high school
courses. He made a full comparison
of the departmental curricula with those
of the universities. The' first point of
comparison is the end of tbe third year
In the high school, when Students have
the option of trying for intermediate
certificates or for matriculation. The
second choice is between senior certificates and first year college work.
On account of their Involving less labor for staff and students, less inconvenience about arranging for examinations, shorter notices nnd, fewer fees,
Mr. Fraser recommended that! (he provincial courses be followed. The report wns adopted.
The payrolls for June and accounts
for $00.70 were passed and payment ordered.
On account of the decision of the
majority of the teachers of tho public
school to attend lhe teachers' convention in Victoria, It was resolved that
the public schools should close down
on Friday. June 22nd. At the request
of Principal Fraser, permission wns
given lo vary the hours of high school
work during the last week.
Wednesday, June 20th, at 8 p. m���
was the date fixed for the special meeting.   The board then adjourned.
Jews Buy Their Escape.
Berlin, June 16.���A despatch from
the Tageblatt frdm Bialystok, dated

ing places Is in possession of the city,
which is on fire. Further llres are continually breaking out; the situation is
frightful. A few Jews through high
payments have been allowed to escape."
To Replace Companies
of R. M. Rangers
Inspector-General Entertained by the
Local Militia���Promises
Generous Aid.
The visit of Lord Aylmer will long
be remembered by the Nelson company
of the Rocky Mountain Rangers. His
words and manner to them from the
beginning of the inspection last night
to the end of (he smoker program,
when he rose to say farewell and replied to the enthusiastic cheering,
united the kindliness of a father, the
heartiness of a comrade, and withal
the zeal of a soldier. As Captain Form remarked at the close, "The men
have fallen In love with him."
Owing to the weather, the inspection
hour was changed from afternoon to
evening, and was held In the armory.
There were on parade Captain Forln,
Lieutenant Stewart, five sergeants, four
corporals, two buglers and 21 privates,
a sergeant and nine privates being unavoidably absent. The present strength
ot the company is 44.
The Inspection conducted by Lord
Aylmer and Colonel Holmes was short,
but thorough, and drew from the general warm praise fur tbe evident seal
and perseverance of officers and men.
He praised the loyalty that led to the
sacrifice of time necessarily devoted to
training, and expressed the hope that
more men would follow their example.
A smoking concert then began, with
a varied program, Including a boxing
match, Edwards vs. Holland; singlestick contest, Marks vs. Coppen; songs
by S. Wye, E. J. Marks; piano solos
by R. Howe and F. J. Palnton, who was
the accompanist of the evening. The
program closed about 10 o'clock with
"The Brave Old Army," sung by Captain Forln.
In reply to "He's a Jolly Good Fellow," followed by ringing cheers. Lord
Aylmer rose to say good-bye.   He said:
"Fellow-Citizens: I am sincerely
sorry to have to say good-bye so early.
1 have enjoyed this evening very much.
I see you have many other accomplishments besides drill, and you seem proficient In all. x
"My trip to British Columbia has
been a revelation to me. This Is a
magnificent country, especially these
mountain regions, and I am highly
pleased that in so many places the
question of national defence has already been faced.
"1 hope that the movement will grow. ���
I promise you on my own behalf and
that of the headquarters staff that any
assistance or encouragement we can
give you will be given promptly and
"I hope that each company of the
Rangers will become before long the
nucleus of a regiment, and tbat there
will be available soon not one regiment, but a brigade of Rocky Mountain
"I sincerely hope that it may be my
good fortune to come again soon and
renew this acquaintance that has been
so pleasant.
"Oentlemen, I thank you for your
kindness   and   hospitality.    Good-bye."
Lord Aylmer, his aide-decamp. Major Eaton, and Colonel Holmes left for
Rossland this morning.
The Brothler Secret
Ottawa, June 10.���It is learned here
on good authority that tbe pardon of
Desire Brothler was preceded by an application to the minister of Justice for
a new trial on the perjury charge, made
in regular form by petition. The
grounds upon which the request was
made were purely technical, but It was
flatly refused. The application in question was made by a Vancouver firm.
When it failed another effort was made
on Brotbier's behalf by some Montreal
people, who asked for his pardon and
release, as already reported. Among
tho grounds given was a statement to
the effect that Brothler wished to leave
for France, where he had a mother and
sister dependent upon him, to whose
support lie was anxious to contribute.
This plea appears to have enlisted the
sympathy of Influential people, as, although the minister of Justice could
see no reason why the case should be
reopened by way of a new trial, he
made the formal recommendation that
he be set at liberty. The Dally Canadian, June id, i906

We crave the Indulgence of our readers while we essay .. discussion of the
hackneyed question of the Lord's Day
Alliance and the proposed Lord's Day
observance bill now before the Dominion house. This is Saturday evening,
and n discussion of the hill will nol be
an unfitting Introduction to the day of
rest, the more especially as the public
of Nelson have been so often treated
io dissertations upon [he Bubject that
we feel sure their weariness is nol unfeigned.
The hill now under discussion in the
Dominion  parliament   has   passed   (lie
committee stage, and is properly before
tho law-makers, as  well as  before  the
country.   A brief resume of its history
nnd of the society  responsible ror Its
Introduction  will Interest  the  readers
of this paper.   The Lord's Day Alliance
ih an organization of some antiquity in
Canada,  bul it is oulj   within  receni
years that it lias become somewhat of
a nuisance to those who hold and prop*
agate lax views as to the method of
observing   the  clay    commonly  called
Sunday.    The Alliance first made itself
felt iu the province of Ontario, where
it had besieged  the late  Ross government to enact legislation for the more
strict observance   of the   day   of   rest.
The  Itoss government,   with   its   usual
method of escape from embarrassing
questions, us on the question of prolii-
biuon, for example, doubted the powers
of a provincial    government    to pass
Sunday  laws;   promised  the advocates
of such   legislation   that   if the     privy
Council would so rule, and having it in
their   power,   they   would   enact    such
legislation us would meet  tho petition
^of the Alliance.    The privy council, if
���wo remember, decided thai it was the
'prerogative    of lhe  Dominion to enact
such  general  Sunday  observance  laws
as might make the observance of the
day  uniform  throughout   Canada.    Certain   rights  and   responsibilities     were
Riill left  to the provinces, and these
have been urged by the Alliance In Ontario somewhat tn the discomfiture of
the government  there.
The heavy artillery of the Alliance.
however, wai silenced as fnr us provincial legislation was concerned, and
the full battery turned upon Ottawa.
with 'he express purpose of securing
legislation for the whole Dominion, and
the bill which is now before the house
lb the outcome of the pressure brought
to bear upon ihe Ottawa government
by public sentiment in tbe east as
crystallized in the demands of the
Lord's  Day Alliance.
We can scarcely repress a smile at
the Innocence of the Alliance and  lhe
duplicity of Hon. Charles Pltxpatrlck,
when the former submitted the draft
of a bill embodying the desired legislation, and the latter, as reported by
the delegation who appealed to him,
agreed to enact the bill as In substance presented to the department, of
which he was the head. Tlie Revs. J,
(1. Shearer and S. D. Chown left the
sanctum of the minister In high glee,
and reported through the religious organs which they control that th"1 question would be settled forthwith by the
enactmenl of practically all such legislation as the Alliance asked for. In
this they had failed to reckon with the
sentiment of the country, particularly
the religions sentiment, which, alas, is
always too ready to assent to any sort
of legislation, provided it is thereby
able to evade responsibility for the
moral and! ethical practices of its own
community. The result has been as
might be expected, that when the bill
actually became a threatening probability, the sentiment of the country
weakened, protest nfter protest has
been lodged, and the bill has been mutilated till, to quote an eastern paper
more expressive than cultured, "its
own mother wouldn't know it."
With the objects of the Lord's Day
Alliance as they are expressed in iis
constitution, we are in fullest accord.
The desirability of securing such Immunity from toil as will guarantee to
each laborer the free enjoyment of one
day of rest In seven will command iho
BUpport of secularist, scientist and religionist alike. But to reduce such a
law to definite and unambiguous terms
so as to cover the field of desirable
legislation without treading upon tbe
tender sensibilities of many upright
and Irreproachable citizens in a country so cosmopolitan as Canada, Is n
problem which will not tie solved today
or tomorrow.
in our opinion, the fata] weakness of
the Lord's Day Alliance is, first, in that
It would presume to give a dogmatic
deliverance upon the debatable subject
of what is right and what is wrong on
Sunday; ami, in the second place, the
assumption that people can he made
moral by act of parliament By these
two parallel lines of latitude the efforts
of the L. I). A. seem to be bounded, and
in morals and ethics, as wed as in
geography, they are largely Imaginary
While we heartily concur in such legislation as may be necessary to protect
the toiler from all encroachment upon
his rights and his time, we are equally
convinced that tbe Lord's Day Alliance
will better spend Its time, energy and
money if it will devote Its efforts to an
evangelistic campaign which will create a wholesome moral sentiment, cor-
reel lax views and enlist ihe sympathies of all classes of society in tlie
proper   observance of  the   Lord's   day.
As usual, the province has excelled iis
previous record, but ii lias taken ten
years to reach a gross output of AM,-
500,000, which includes coal, gold, cop*
per. silver, lead and zinc. To British
Investors, the development of iiie metallic mining industry lias been tardy
and disappointing. To American mining im u it has been a cause of amazement that tlie most highly mineralized
portion of the North American continent has been so comparatively neglected. Tlie British Columbian boasts
vaguely of the great richness of the
country, and points to individual prospectors who have made a 'slake' by
the sale of their claims; but the fact
remains that there is today hardly one
prosperous mine owned aud operated
by local capital. Eastern Canadian,
Itritish and American capital has been
spent, and in a few cases returns are
now being received; hut local enterprise has not been conspicuous."
The reply .it the Colonist is a clincher, and only that it lias to be made to
thai peculiar class of Ignoramuses, a
pair ut which evidently edit "Canada."
it would be effective. To such people,
however, mere is no rational appeal:
"There Is but one way to deal with
the statement respecting the dale of
tbe appearance ol the minister of
mines' report, and that is to quote tlie
opinion of one who is an authority on
the subject- - Horace Stevens, author
of 'The Copper Handbook,' recognized
everywhere among mining men. Writing voluntarily to the editor of the Mining Record, lie said: "In my work on
"The Copper Handbook" 1 have to keep
iu touch with tbe mining bureaus of
the entire world, and 1 wish lo go on
record as slating lhat for some years
past, without exception, the annual report ot* tlie British Columbia Bureau
ol .Minis has In en the first to reach
me from any oflioial bureau, division
or department dealing with mining
mailers' To lie first in all the world
ought to settle the editor of 'Canada'
on that  score.
"Now, as to the other statement
made, 'Canada' is. if not equally astray,
they are al least equally uncalled for.
It is true that the majority of the large
producing mines are controlled hy outside capital, but iu that the province of
British Columbia simply follows the
bad of all other mining countries.
When money is required in the millions
for development of such mines as the
Oranby, or the Le Rol, or the Crow's
.Vest Pass Coal Company, it is necessary to go to the money centref to get it.
There are local shareholders in all our
mines, and there are a number of the
smaller properties owned by and operated by local men, but when the mine
reaches a certain stage, it is almost Invariably reorganized for the purpose
of increased capitalization. This Is
the rule everywhere���in South Africa.
Australia or Mexico, as well as in British Columbia. Such criticism as 'Canada' indulges in demonstrates lamentable ignorance of the conditions which
obtain in mining, ns its news columns
do in respect to the various mines of
Hritish Columbia. It succeeds in placing some of the largest of the Boundary mines in tlie Sloeaii-Kootonay, together with the Frank smelter In Alberta: and under the head of the
'Crow's Nest Pass Coal' it gives the
returns of the Le Rid, Centre Star and
other Rossland mines."

There is a new publication in England, a weekly paper which calls ItselT
"Canada." nnd which has been Imbibing the prejudices of certain opposition
papers In Hritish Columbia, descending
to their level in Untruthful assertions
reapooling tbe department of mines.
The Colonist lakes the paper to task,
and neatly tarns the tables, showing
thai ii is either Ignorant or unfair, and
convincingly establishes the fact ihat
in the department of mines there id 111-
He left undone that It Is desirable to
do.    The Colonist   says:
"We refer to certain communis It
has made on the mines' report and the
mining development which appear In
lhe last issue at hand." It then quotes
from Canada:
"Unfortunately the authorities of
Hritish Columbia are as tardy as ever
In preparing the annual provincial statistics; and it still takes them nearly
Ave months to ascertain and announce
the value of last year's mineral output.
The action of the executive council
of the legislative assembly of British
Columbia in deciding to order the fullest Inquiry into the workings of the department of lands and works will compel the admiration of political friends
and honorable opponents alike, ITiat
would seem lo he ihe only way to silence the horde of slanderers who have
been seek Ins to poison ihe mind of the
electorate in respect lo the administration of that department, Unfair a procedure as it is, they have forced the
department to do what is never naked
of an accused person in any court of
law or public opinion���that Is, convince the public of lis innocence. From
the riot that was raised one might have
expected that definite charges would
have been preferred, and In some way
that the department might have been
placed in the position of tin ordinary
defendant In the case. The chief commissioner, however, asks lor an investigation, and thereby gives evidence
of his readiness to account for the inner workings of the branch of the administration over which he has charge.
Tin- outcome of this inquiry will be
not only a boomerang for tlie calumniators, hut win probably result in some
of them finding themselves In a serious
position al the (lose, There is for
some people and some newspapers only

process of inflicting penally for u violation of the decencies of life may he a
wearisome one, il will not in the end
fall to g< t  there,
Thut the Inquisition will he full and

will convince the people that the better

Will Meet Most of Expense-
Good   Progress   Made.
The problem of extra lighting for the
muln thoroughfares of Nelson nt limes
���)f celebration, fulrs anil holidays has
jeen solved. The necetBury equipment
will be acquired by the city at a total
coat of about ��600, only about $100 of
which will be borne by tlie city treasury, and oven of that amount a considerable proportion would lie necessary
in any event.
The work lu connection wllh the Installation nf lhe extra service will be
done under the supervision of the clly
superintendent of elociric lighting, w.
P. Dickson.
The progressive measure is the act
of tho celebration committee, and the
credit fur lis Initiation is due chiefly
In .1. A. Irving und W. Irvine.
The arrangements were practically
concluded lasi night at the meeting of
Hie Dominion Day celebration commit
tee. The result will be the saving of
all bul a trifling proportion of nn annual
expenditure of about }:ioo for extra
lighting when required.
The general work of the celebration
committee is well advanced. A credit-
ulile program of sports for two days Ib
arranged, anil ..ullii-i'-in financial support lo cover all necessary outlay is
practically assured.
The commiltee met in the city hall
at H-.'Mi o'clock last evening. In the
absence of Mayor Gillett, .1. .1. Malone
was elected to the chair. Others present were VV. Irvine, secretary; J. A.
Irving, A, Tliomas, W. E. Gosnell, \V.
It. McLean, C. Walmsley, F. Brewer,
E. McLeod, Chief Deasy, J. H. Wallace,
.1. E. Annable and G. P. Wells. The
ti i j nu i ���.-. of the last meeting were read
and appioved. _-
.1. A. Irving reported on the question
of street illumination that the city had
undertaken to supply the lights and
the feed wire, and that a tender had
been received from J. H. Illngrose foi
the supply of 20- strings of 20 sockets
each for *350.
After a short discussion it was agreed
that the celebration committee should
pay >2S0. and ask lie Agricultural Society to pay the remaining $u��>, unless lhe surplus from the celebration
fund Bhould be sufficient to cover the
whole  amount.
W. Irvine reported for tho printing
anil advertising committee that the
posters were now ready for distribution, and would be sent out at once,
and that numbered tickets had been
secured for admission  to lhe grounds.
O. P. Wells stated that the management of the Itossland lacrosse club
had replied, accepting the invitation to
play in Nelson on the 3rd of July.
The secretary reported that no definite reply had been received from the
club, but that the members had declared their willingness to assist in
the celebration in any way desired.
The chairman reported a request
from the tennis club for a grant of $50
for their tournament. The matter was
favorably discussed, but no action was
The finance committee, through W.
E. Gosnell, reported $1,120 collected to
The meeting was then adjourned to
Wednesday night at  8:30.
Half Sense���Half Satire.
Canadian Methodism in one of its
eastern conferences regrets that tile
youth of the land is more prone to
honor athletic than Intellectual great-
The youth of tlte land might make
answer and say tlint the conferences
of the church are more prone to honor
worldly success than spiritual greatness,
The glory of Canada is not In the legs
uf William Bherrlng.
Nor is tlte glory of the conference in
the poeketbnok of some Methodist millionaire, or in Ihe political success of
Hon. Clifford Sifton or some other denominational  politician.
It Is a sad fact that Ihe youth of the
land does not pick its heroes from
among the Ithodes scholars instead of
from among the Marathon runners.
it Is a sadder fact that the conferences of Ihe church pick their heroes
from among the millionaires In the
membership insteud of from among the
superannuated Soldiers of the Cross
who have preached three times a Sunday on a salary that may have averaged $5511 per annum in tlie forty or
ilfly years' battle for their Master,
Where is the conferenco that honors
good deeds In the recorda ot! Its older
members as much as it honors millions
in the bank accounts of its richer
The conference that makes heroes of
rich men Is in no position to rebuke the
youth of a land that makes heroes of
Its strong men.
Leave the boys to the wot ship of
the Marathon runner. He is admired
for the strength of his legs. The idolatry of athletics is a mistake. It is not
a sordid folly. The boys will outgrow
It and live to Join Ihe conferences in
the worship of Ihe stock Jiibber, the

Ittg success in filling the opera house
to the doors fur every production, and
no audience has been disappointed.
The generous patronage Is eloquent
testimony to Ihe charm and grace of
the juvenile players. They seem to
Improve with each production. Tho

have brilliant careers before them, and
tiie average standard of dramatic ability for tlie whole company Is remarkably high.
In "A Gaiety Girl," which was pre

the numerous choruses, which were
excellently rendered.

be made of the next offender.
