Baltimore, .ud., April s.���Today
marks an Important anniversary in the
hlstorj of ih. Roman Catholic Church
In the United States, It was just one
hundred years ago, on AVprli s, isos,
tbat tliu archdiocese uf Baltimore was
establlsjhed. At the same time four im-
porUuiL iliocvsi's uiuw arcluliocesesi
were ccuistituted, us follows: New York,
with bishop Conoannon aa its tirst bishop; Lkistun, with Bishop Clieverus as
.is tirst bishop; Philadelphia, with
Bishop EDgan as its lirst bishop; and
Bardstown, Ky., with liishop Flaget a*
ils  lirst bishop.
Trior lo this Important event there
was but oue Catholic, bishopric In the
United suites. Bishop Carroll, who
wus appointed as ihe lirst American
bishop .n 1780, had uie whole country
lor bis diocese. Oue hundred rears
anu there were not over sixty cuthoile
priests .ii the I nited States and not
more than seventy churches. The newly established metropolitan see oi Uul-
tinioie, wub Bishop Carroll at us head,
and the lout suffragan sees of itosiou,
New York, Philadelphia ami Bardstown, constituted tlie Catholic Church
organisation of the United States,
Up io tlie days when tlie Irish famine
ui im; brought thousands ot Immigrants io swell the Catholic population
of the country, one metropolitan see,
that of Baltimore, and one archbishop
suillced fur the whole country. Before
lbbs the number ol bishoprics had in-
oreased to over twenty. Today the 11,-
oou.uou communicants or the Catholic
church in ihe United States are looked
alter by fourteen archbishops and ninety
bishops. The number of priests exceeds
la.uoti and there are more than 18,000
The centennial of the archdioceses ot
Baltimore is to be observed by un elaborate celebration to be held here the
latter part of this month. The celebration win be held Immediately before
or ufter the annual meeting of the
Roman Catholic archbishops In wush-
Ington and the meeting of the trustees
of the Catholic University In thai city,

Quebec Bridge Builders
Very Careless
Directors Have Received About $50,-
000 For Doing Nothing���Echo of
Ex-Governor Mc Innes.
Ottawa, April 8.���Four additional ay
peudicea to the report of the Quebec
bridge commission have been presented
to parliament. One of these Is an examination of the varioua full-sized column tests that have been made in
America. The commiwsioners point oui
that uo evidence was forthcoming to
suow tbat either Air. Cooper or Air.
Bxlapjca ordered any investigation to be
mudy ol tne tests, data that were valuable, aud when the comparative magnitude 01 the undertaking is remembered
it is difficult to explain their failure to
check their conclusions on the Phoenix
testing machine^ which was at their disposal.
Another appendix compares ihe
atresia* in tht: several members of the
main trusses, computed trom the hiidge
as liualiy designed, with the stresses
authorized by the specilicatious. It
Bays that the error of Strsas in the main
chords near the centre post, due to an
airtor of assumed dead load was fully
lu per cent, No satisfactory explanation of the occurrence ot this eiror had
ij�� en offered. Messrs. t^eant., Bliftpka
and Coops* r-ermiited the shops and
ruhing mills to commence WOTS, without taking auy steps to test the correctness oi the assumed load, aud the probable dead load did not appear to have
been estimated from the plans until at
least IS months after the work of
fabrication was commenced. The commissioners are of the opinion that no
manufacturing should have been done
until the designers had so advanced
with their works as to be able to make
a proper estimate of the weight of the
bridge. Manufacturing was commenced
in July, 1901, without any checking, al
though the specifications called for it,
and the contract practically demanded
emblematic      of    championship, i atlng.
Ottawa, April S.���Returns are being
made to the commons of the resolutions which Laurier received in July
lOOti from the Yukon territorial Liberal association denouncing in most unmeasured terms Hon. \V. W. B. Mc-
Innis at that time commissioner of the
Yukon territory, and demanding his dismissal hy the government. From this
correspondence It seems that after
branding Mclnnis in the resolution as
notoriously untrustworthy, vain, self-
seeking, immoral and drunken, the
same association In November following passed a resolution repudiating the
other resolution as spurious and declaring lhat no such expression had been
authorized  hy   the  association.
Alderman Foran intends to propose

and sale act now before parliament,
declares it an offence to put auy foreign
matter whatever into cheese or incorporate an Interior cuid or cheese therein, penalties to appiy ugaiust any one
who either manufactures or deals in
these inierior products. This bill puts
an end to the cheese box romances
which have attracted some attention in
the old country. It had been louud
that glass bottles were occasionally
slipped into the centre of a cheese by
romantic dairy maids. This had caused complaint from purchasers in the
old  country.

associated with Otto P. Somnior, brother of Harry, who Is now In Chicago,
and the two pioneers exchanged much
uews of the survivors of the great rush
of ten years ago. Both men found this
morning that they had met to part
again aud that they were both starting, almost on the same day, for new
gold Holds and in two differeul directions.
There are many portages on the way
to the Arctic which the Carroll-Hall
party will have to make. One of the
worst, the Smith portage, fifteen miles
lung, can be made by cattle and horses
which are now plentiful there. The two
partners, however, anticipate no trouble
in muking their trip.
They expect lo winter at Gravel rivet,
and to reuch the Arctic early ln the
.���nunii.'i- of  1U09.

London, April 8.���The vacancy in tne
office of prime minister of Great Britain
caused by the resignation last Saturday
of Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman on
account of ill health, was filed at Biarritz, France, during the audience between King Edward and Herbert Asqulth, who had been summoned from
London. Mr. Asqulth first tendered
to His Majesty Ills resignation as chancellor of the exchequer and immediately
thereafter he kissed the hand of the
King on his appointment to the post of
prime minister and first lord of the
It is officially announced that King
Edward will leave Biarritz on April 15,
to hold a privy council ln London on
the 16th. The new ministers probably
will have their first audience on this
occasion as it is understood that Mr.
Asqulth was able to submit a list of his
main appointments to His Majesty this
morning. Mr. Asquith ls expected In
London tomorrow when he will complete his ministry.
The latest Information from well informed circles points to the strong possibility of the retirement of Lord Lore-

In the estimation of Mr. Asqulth, and
the appointment of R. B. Haldane, secretary of state, to this post, with the
peerage attachment. It Is known that
Mr. Haldane is ready to leave the war
office. He would like to become chancellor of the exchequer but It Is apparent that David Lloyd-George, president of the board of trade, has the keys
to that office in his pocket. In the
event of Mr. Haldane going to the upper house, Winston Churchill, under
secretary of the colonial office, will
most likely get the war office, which
would be more congenial to him than
the board of trade.

Wednesday,    April   8,    1903.
For Uie lirst time since 1890 there is
a distinct issue between Conservatives
and Liberals in the Dominion parliament, it dates from the rejection of
.Mr. Foster's resolutions in favor oi
civil service reform and the abolition
of the patronage list. As noted hy Independent Eastern papers Sir Wilfrid
Laurier was offered an opportunity to
accept the resolutions as entirely uon-
partizau. Jt is true lhat reform of the
civil service is au Important part of
Mr. Borden's programme, but it was
also a feature of the Libetai programme
of 1898, and until last week it had never
been publicly repudiated by Sir Wilfrid
J-amier or any responsible colleague.
Uut the Issue Is now definite. The
Conservative party advocates appoints
mollis to the civil service by competitive examination, and the purchase of
all supplies lor government departments
by a nori-partlzaii purchasing committee. The Liberals maintain the system
of appointments on the recommendations of patronage committees, and the
purchase of supplies from party friends
through middlemen, with Illegitimate
profits to both seller and agent to warrant a claim for contributions to campaign funds.
The sysiem now in vogue is, of
course, not the creation of Sir Wilfrid
J.aurier. It is as old as government In
Canada. Hut Sir Wilfrid Laurier gave
It prominence in his programme of It
yean ago, perhaps with quite honest
Intentions at the time, and has allowed
like his pledges on the sub-
Ing free trade, "as they
.: in England."
It means lhat the public is corrupted
with ,ts u��u money, that expenditure
of public funds instead of being regaru-
ed as a great iiuol i�� used to reward
party service in the past, or to buy It
for the future. It means a.so that ap-
poinlments to the civii service ate noi
n.auc w.ui the View ol securing honest
anu capable oihciais but solely to consolidate party strength.
'J hat ii the spoils system of Tammany
Hall. It nas been urged in its dcle-iic.
that seii interest oi parties will dictate
the appointment oi the best men available. But ihe experience oi au countries shows lhat to be a lai.acy. A man
who is given a position as a reward loi
pasl services is most unlikely to leei
any greai obligation on his part to render efficient service. He regards bis
post as a vested interest, properly acquired.
iiui jusl now in Canada we do not
have to argue about results. They have
been shown to us in all their disgusting
detail by the report of the civil service
commission, which may be summarized
as a verdict of ' Incompetence iu all departments,  and  dishonesty  in  most."
In the campaign that will be fought
on this issue the Conservatives will
have the support of every Independent
in the country and probably of thousands of Liberals. The evils of the system are best appreciated by those nearest to the capital. The following Is
the Independent Toronto News' comment:
"There Is no evidence that tenders
are often manipulated at Ottawa. Indeed   there   is   reason   to   think   ihut   a

high average of honesty prevails
amongst the permanent officials of the
departments. But It Is noteworthy Lhat
all over lhe country local Liberal politicians form themselves into companies,
or embark in business as Individual
contractoi-s. Lawyers, doctors and traders who have had no experience whatever in the field iu which they operate
are conspicuous in those companies and
they are singularly fortunate ln receiving public contracts. It ls interesting" to recall how many Liberal politicians have turned their energies in
this direction since 1890 and generally
with lairiy saiistaciory results. In short
patronage-making and patronage-giving
has become a science aud generally the
txpeits are acknowledged supporters ol
the government. There is no remedy
i.hort of a uou-partizan organization ot
the civil service under an independent
board, the honest observance of the contract system, and the destruction of the
patronage list. All this, by the way,
was to come as the result of the accession of the Liberal politicians to office.
Ii the only result has been to develop
and extend the system, they obtained
oiiice under iaise pretences and should
be relegated to opposition. In the
meantime the taxpayers are plundered
out of millions every year in order to
maintain a system which benefits a
favored political hierarchy and provides
an easy means of raising huge funds
for electoral corruption."

"Doctor BUI" Partridge Claim, to Have
Again   Struck it  Rich.
Tlioae who remember \V. J. Partridge, known as "Sailor Bill" and his
efforts Lo train dog teams in the streets
of Victoria for the north will be Interested ln the following from the Post-
Iulelllgeucer: "W. J. Partridge, tirst discoverer of gold ou Quartz creek, In the
Klondyke, original owner of the claims
which made the first fortune for Swift-
water bill dates, and one of the most
noted rovers and followers or mining
excitements in tbe world, ls In Seattle
ou bis way to London to linauce a mining venture in Mexico. Fot the past
two years Partridge has been in Mexico and says he has secured valuable
mining concessions which he will attempt to finance  in London.
"Mr. Partridge ls one of the most
noted characters that has ever visited
tills country. He is an Englishman
by birth, but has visited every known
portion of the globe where gold has
been discovered. Past 60 years of age
he has made five fortunes in his life,
ail of which have been lost on the London stock exchange. He served with
Lord Roberts iu the Boer war, alter
which he mined in South Africa. He
has also been engaged In mining in
Australia and was among the first gold
seekers to go north ln the rush to the
Klondyke. He was the original discoverer of gold on Quartz creek and located the claims which made the fortune of Swiftwater Bill Gates. He sold
out to Gates and the latter made his
name famous with the fortune which
he  took  from the  claims.
"It has only been my curse to lose
my money In stock gambling," said
Mr. Partridge last night, "but I believe
1 have made the strike at last that
will allow me to play the game with
the best of them. I have been all over
the world in search of gold. Five
times I have struck it rich and sold out
for various sums ranging from $250,-
000 to $500,000. Every time I have played in luck I have returned to London
and lost the money on the stock exchange. Some of the mining claims I.
have sold for a few hundred thousand
dollars have turned out to be worth millions,, but I was never lucky enough to
be in at the finish.

Building   Improvements.

Cleaning Day.
The mayor's attention having been
called to the fact that April 16th, the
day proposed by him for a spring clean-
ing day, came immediately before Good
Friday, he has put the date forward
one day. There will still be a little
dissatisfaction as two holidays in one
week and that the week before Easter
are thought excessive. Still there Is no
doubt of general observance as everyone approves the plan. A very little
work will make it quite presentable but
il must be co-operative to produce satisfactory results.
Lumber for  Doukhobors.
Feier Verigin, the noted leader of the
Doukhobor settlement in Canada, has
spent several days in Nelson, being a
gueBt at the Queen's hotel. Mr. Verigin
took his meals in his room and did not
mingle with any of the other guests.
In business transactions he was represented by his private secretary. But
he also had a timber inspector with
him. It is learned that the object of
his visit is to acquire timber limits in
Kootenay and arrange for the erection
of sawmills to supply his compatriots
wiib lumber for building cheaper than
they can buy it from retailers in the
prairie towns. So far, it is understood,
he has not yet decided upon any acquisition.
Spelling  Bee.
Tbe first spelling bee in Nelson was
held in Carney's hall. Dr. Arthur was
schoolmaster. It was under the auspices of the Presbyterian Ladies Aid
Society. A divinity student, a school
teacher and a master mariner all went
down on the same word, which led Rev.
Jas. Turner to remark that the "sky"
pilot, the "young idea" pilot, and the
"lake" pilot were each and all "knocked
out" In tbe same round. The prize was
awarded to Miss G. Robinson, a student
in the public school at that time, who
afterwards  became  the wife  of Mr.  S.

For Fullness, richness and mellownes

There Is a reason for this It Is because the hollow tone arm through
which the sound passes is made of
aluminum, which does away entirely
with the metallic sound so often noticeable in other machines.
