the Cauudlan premier, addressing tbe

no rear that Canada would bo Americanized. The American Immigrants lntu
Canada wore practical people who had
quitted tho United Stales for Canada
because they believed It a better country, with better laws administered tenfold better than the laws of the United

Mexico   Roused  at   Indignities  Offered
Her Consul In Guatemala���May
Enter the Conflict.
San Antonio, Texas, May 1���A special to tho Express from Mexico City
"The most extreme indignation and
wild excitement have been caused here
by the report and the American and
lhe Mexican legations In Guatemala
City have been stoned by a mob of several hundred men, instigated by agents
of Presldenl Manuel Estrada Cabera of
Guatemala. There Is evidently a strong
Inclination to give credence to the report, and no olflclal denial has been
made though thc federal authorities
refuse to confirm it.
Mexican troops are mobilizing on
tbe Guatemalan frontier, which action
i-s believed to be highly significant,
though the war department has stated
that the mobilization of troops Is nothing more than a move to insure strict
neutrality and to protect Mexican interests against any remote danger from
Irresponsible, marauding bands. Tbe
mobilized force ln the south will be
under the command of Brigadier General Antonio R. Florest, directly assigned to the duty by the war department. He will be aided by Captain of
Engineers Sains, who has already left
here for the Isthmus of Tehannalepec.
Reports are also current here that Minister Gamboa, representing Mexico In
Guatemala, has left that country and
crossed Into Mexican territory. As tbe
result of friction with Cabrera'B government growing out of telegrams sent
from Mexico to Guatemala .relative to
tho asslnatlon of General Manuel Barillas.
"Passports are said to be In preparation for Minister Manuel Girone, Guatemala's representative In Mexico, for bis
return to hlB own country.
Mexico City May 1.���Minister of Foreign Affairs Marlscal, issued a statement last night In which he said that
tho Mexican government had made a
demand on Guatemala that General
Kose Ma.-la Lima, of the Guatemalan
army, bo held on the charge of murder
of General Barillas until extradition papers reached the Guatemalan capital.
The minister says thst the Central
American republic Is not bound by
treaty to acquiesce In Mexico's demand.
He adds, however, that unless Guatemala accceds to Mexico's request on
the groundB of courtesy, diplomatic relations between the countries will be
Beverod. Hut this, thc document adds,
will not necessarily lead to a further or
more serious breach. It Is authoritatively Btated that the report that Mexican troops are being moved to tho Guatemalan frontier Ib correct, but the government maintains that such action has
no partlculor significance at this time.
No word has been received here from
tho Mexican minister In Guatemala in
several days.

Paris, May 1.���Although the entire
garrison of Paris was under arm. and
600 mounted Republican guard, and 400
police reservists were on duty in order
to prevent tbe gigantic May manifestation planned bythe Socialist., the city
presented almost ita normal aspect thla
morning. Troops were massed at the
Prince Eugene barrack., the Bank of
France, the opera, the Grand Palace,
the Bourse, tbe Rue Droit and other
strategic points, but all were discreetly
kept out of light in order to avoid
alarming the population.
The authorities, while not interfering
with the workmen's meeting., were re
solved to break up the flrst attempt at
street demonstration which might lead
lo serious disorders. It waa apparent
thla morning that the mas. of tbe people had not much sympathy with the
agitators. The appeala ot M. Jaures
and other Socialist leader, for a complete suspension of work throughout
France were generally unheeded. All
the stores and restaurants were open
and tbe omnibuses and bone car line*
and electric roada were running as
Rome, May 1.���The police forbade a
public meeting here today organized by
the Socialist, to commemorate May-
Day, at which Maxim Gorky had promised to speak. All the atret. leading to
the botanical garden, near the Coliseum, where the meeting was to be
held, were occupied by troops or police.
Workmen who gathered in the vicinity
broke through the cordons, entered the
gardens and held a meeting. The Socialist deputy delivered fiery speeches
but Gorky did not appear. According
to one report his absence was due to
the fact that he wa. suffering from
consumption, which prevented him from
making the Journey from Camp Rle to
Rome. But on the other hand. It wae
stated that Gorky had been cautioned
that he would be expelled from Italy lf
he attempted to raise a disturbance.
After this meeting ln the gardens the
workmen who had participated ln it, attempted to march In procession through
the principal strets of the city, but were
prevented from doing so by troops of
cavalry who charged and dispersed the
Boston, May 1.���An unusually quiet
May Day throughout New England, with
the exception of this city, was experienced in labor circles today. Minor
troubles In the building trades in some
of the cities and towns were the most
discordant notes outside Greater Boston district, where 1,600 men went out
for higher wagee today, while the
teamsters' strike, which started a month
ago, was still in force with almost daily
scenes of disorder. The majority of ts*
men who went out today were, bakers,
numbering 1,200. They ask for a 10 per
cent. Increase In pay. Asphalt worker,

the building trades and other Industries
an amicable adjustment of existing difference! was expected.

a letter from Hon. Mr. Whitney, who

F. Starkay'a Private Report to Board of
Trade���No Further Action
During   Dispute.
At a special meeting of the board of
trade last evening F. A: Starkey gave a
full report of hi. impressions on the
strike situation at Fernie. At the cloee
lt waa considered Inexpedient that
all that Mr. Starkey had learned
should be published at the present June-
ture, and the representatives of the
press present promised compliance wltb
the prudent wishes of the board.

8:30 with President Starkey In the
chair, others present being D. C. Mo
Morris, F. J. Deane, J. J. Campbell, J.

Mr. Starkey read a telegram from W.
Mackenxie King of purport similar to
that published yesterday.
Mr. Starkey then gave an a/count of
hi. ml.alon, Including the statement already given out.
The additional matter, however, was
rather Interesting. On the delegate.'
arrival in Fernie they were met by Hon.
W. H. Cushlng who told them that the
operator, had already told him that the
Intervention of tbe boards of trade was
unwelcome and would be futile.
In tbe public meeting of last Thursday afternoon Mr. Cushlng had denied
that any promise had been made by or
on behalf of the Alberta government ta
pass an Eight Hour law. He was prepared to do so now, but denied any for-
mer promise.
W. Mackenxie King alao denied ever
having made such a promise.
The rest of Mr. Starkey's report I.
withheld trom publication by the re-
quest of the board.
A vote of thanks to Mr, Starkey waa
passed on motion of J. J. Campbell, seconded by I. G. Nelson.
J. J. Campbell questioned the expediency of publishing the president's report
Mr. Starkey drew attention to the expression tn Mr. King's telegram, "Inadvisable to express an opinion at present," but also reminded the board that
the published report bad mentioned difference, among the men aa one of the
cause, of strife.
The vote of thanks waa adopted and
the meeting adjourned.

On risking to respond. Sir Wilfrid
Laurler received a great ovation (rom
the club members. Sir Wilfrid made a
graceful response, prefacing his remarks by stating he found ln England
far more than ln Canada the atmosphere full of the word "Empire." Proceeding he differentiated trom those who
thought the daya of the Brltlah Empire
were put. England waa the living
mother ot, all living nations and the
motto of the Empire should be Imperial
unity with local liberty.
Referring to the difference between
the economic conditions of the old country and the colonies, Laurier Instanced
the burden of militarism, which all the
peoples ot Europe labored under. He
thanked Heaven that Canada waB free
from that burden, and the forthcoming
celebration of a century of peace between Canada and the States would be
an example to all the world. Canada's
chief Item of expenditure was ln the direction, creation and development of
routes of commerce; she had a complete railway system to build to the
Georgian Bay canal.

Newfoundland which were the laws of

had been made would not be completed,
but this latter would form a very small
portion ofthe work that the C. P. R.
had planned.
Mr. White wu alao very much pleas-
sad over the fact that the miners have
returned to work, pending a final settlement, and asserted that he could see no
reason why they would not remain at
wnrk until a clear and amicable decision
had been reached between the miners
and the owners. Speaking of the elect
of the tie-up so far a. the C. P. R. wu
concerned, no particular effects were
at all noticeable. The close of
the western mines naturally compelled
the company to locate another place for
the purehaae ot their coal supply, but
provisions were Immediately made for
procuring lt In other quarters. Coal wu
purchased by the compiny In all available point., both in Canada and the
United States, and as a result Mr.

Until tomorrow night the people of
Kootenay and Alberta can only await.
ln anxious suspense, the result of the
voting by the coal miners In and near
the Crow's Nest Pass. If the miners
decide to go back to work the wheels
of industry will again begin to move,
and the tide of busin-ass will again flow
on. But if they elect to remain out,
mining, smelting and transportation will
cease, and Kootenay and Southern Al-
Jjerta will miss tlieir share of tlie progress and prosperity expected for thia
year throughout the west.
It Is an absurd situation. Perhaps
the more obvious the ubsurdlty becomes
the better, as tbe people of Canada will
be forced ln self defence, aB weJI as out
of self respect, to find a remedy.
It is not necessary for present purposes to go into the history of labor
unions. For many years unions worked
well. They gradually raised the condi
tion of tbelr members and secured safe
guards against dangerous employments
and against the carelessness of employ
No one will deny the laborers' righl
to a living wage, a wage that will per
mit a sober, industrious aud provident
workman to bring up a family in de
cency and some comfort. Such should
be tbe ideal of unionism, and such men
would be the strength of a nation. Some
unions, let it be conceded, still adhere
to that policy. By giving a fair days
work for a fair day's wage they avoid
the necessity for strikes, and benefit
their own members and the community
Bt large.
But ln some industries, notably mln
leg, on the American continent, the
unions have declared war on the representatives of the capital without which
thoBe Induttries could not be carried
on. They cannot win in that war. They
nj��>* s.cure lilgjer nominal wages, hut
by bo doing tbey are forcing up tbe cost
of the necessaries of life. They gain
nothing at all and the community as a
whole is left poorer.
Kor the prosecution of such a campaign It was necessary thst a monopoly
of the labor market be secured. It has
been secured through the cowardice of
professional politicians, Chinese exclusion, the alien labor law and contract
labor law, have made it impossible to
replace strikers with men willing to
work. It was assumed that the power
given to the unions would bring with it
a sense of responsibility. That expectation has not been realized.
In the present dispute lhe question of
wages Is not the chief one. Tbe issue
Is the principle of the "closed shop" or
an equivalent, that is an even more
complete monopoly of the labor market
than is at present enjoyed.
From the confused and conflicting reports that have come from the seat of
war, one fact is obvious: both parties
in this conflict have been disingenuous
in their statements to the public, anJ
both have shown a callous disregard for
the public interest.
The chief hope In the circumstances
lies in that fact than an Investigation is
nol desired by any of the parties, and
that fear of an Investigation may hasten
some settlement.
decent school accommodations must not
be longer denied. The issue will soon
be before the prop-arty ownera. Will
they advertise their faith in the city,
or fly signals of distress and despair?
Another issue to be faced iB the extension of the city limits to include
the suburb of Kairview, The people of
Fairview, with hardly un exception,
earn their living in Nelaon. All tbelr
Interests, Industrial, commercial and
social are the same as those of the
city. The benefits to the people of Fair-
view of union with the city are patent
anil hardly need even to be stated.
To the city the exts-nsloti would mean
an increase of expenditure for public
works this year or next, and a slight
permanent Increase In the cosl of administration of the tire and polios' departments.
On the other hand the extension
would make Nelson at once a city of
nearly, if not quite. T.UUO Inhabitants,
easily the fourth city in the province In
population as it bas long been In commercial importance. It would increase
thc assessed values and reduce the pro-
P'M-tion thereto of bonded indebtedness,
and it would be another declaration of
confidence and of resolution on the part
of ber cltijens to keep Nelson, what it
Is now, the chief city of the Interior of
British Columbia.
A Mr. Donahue, of New Westminister,
has objected to tbe names of over 800
voters on the list for Fernie riding.
That is the privilege of any citizen In
the province. We cannot sympathize
with any indignation over his act. The
objection is presumably on the ground
tbat the men are not now resident in
the riding nor even permanent residents
fn tbe province. Surely tbat Is a valid
objection. Tbe voter who ha_ no Interest In the welfare of the country, who
refuses obedience to its laws, and even
repudiates allegiance to its King and
his representatives, is a menace to the
country and has no right to a voice in
Ita government
Canadians who believe In the British
Empire, who wish to promote its unification and progress, and are willing if
necessary to make sacrifices for it in
peace or war, cannot recognize without
a feeling of humiliation that their views
are expressed In the colonial conference, not by the premier of Canada,
but by the premiers of Australia, New-
Zealand antl tbe Cape. It w-as not so
In the days of Sir John Macdonald or
Sir Charles Tupper.
The people of Nelson, especially the
prop-arty owners, will very soon have to
face two important Issues .the decision
of which will Indicate whether they believe In the permanency and growth of
Nelson or not.
The flrst duty of a civilized community, after the maintenance of law and
order. Is provision for education of the
young. The adequacy of such provision
may uot be a perfect criterion of the
state of learning ln the community, hut
It Is an excellent Indication of the value
placed upon learning.
It is to be hoped that in the past the
respect In which learning Is held in this
community has not been estimated by
any one from the appearance of the
public school buildings. Useful work
has often heen done in even cruder
buildings in pioneer days, but that Is
no excuse for retaining crude and unsightly buildings In a settled city community.
If Nelson Is to be what its builders
bave tried to make It, a city ot homes,
Prof. N. F. Dupuis Condemns It as Un'
suited for Common Use. '
Toronto, May 1.���Prof. N. F. Dupois,
of Queen's university, delivered an address on the "Metric System" before
the Empire Club in the St. Charles hotel
last night. The professor strongly
criticized tbe proposals of the metricists
to make their system universal. It was
shown tbat from the scientific standpoint the metric system was far from
perfect, and that if the British people
intended to reform their present methods of weights, numbers and measures, a better scheme should be adopt-
ed, more in accordance with the rules
of nature. After pointing out that a
wide Interval existed between the metric and decimal system, the professor
showed that the decimal system was
adopted accidentally and that It was
not the moBt perfect one w-hlch could be

To   Keep   All   Auitrallasla   for   White
Men���To Form Part of An Ever-
Growing  Empire.
London, May l���in an article ln the ���
Dally liall the Ideab of the people of
New Zealand are Bet forth ln the form
of a -sketch of Sir Joseph Ward, premier of thai colony. The drat point lt
shown In the words of the premier: "I
believe that the thing for ub to do is to
usBlHt the Old Und to make itself
stronger." Elaborating this he said:
"It ls Important tliat the colonies Bhould
help Ui-ltaln to have a navy bo powerful
as to make It impossible for any two
countries to conspire to attack England. As a common-sense people It Is
our duty not only to give assistance, but
to let the Empire Bee that the people
are behind the men who voice the colony's determination to do its duty to
give reasonable contributions for the
maintenance and future Increase of the
navy." The people of New Zealand
and their premier believe In Imperial
There Ib one other point In the colon-
lal Conference on which the premier of
New Zealand may have much to say.
Thoee who have followed Australasian
affairs during the past three years are
well aware that the recent revival of
Oriental power ie regarded with some
mlagivingB ln the Antipodes. To the
men of New Zealand the awakening ot
New China and the enormous growth
of ber population have their threatening
side. Sir Joseph Ward feels lt is his
duty to see tbat the question of maintaining the racial purity of our people
in tbe south ls faced by the conference.
"One of the greatest perils of the
dwellers ln the portions or the Empire
in the Southern Seas is the Yellow
Peril," he said not long ago.
New Zealand wants to make sure that
no Imperial obligations will be Incurred
that may compel lt to admit alien races
among its people. The men of the colony are willing enough to do their part
In bearing the burden of Empire, but
they are not willing that England
should practically pledge them withoul
thetr consent to plans perilous to their
national future.
Closer trade, mutual counsel, a
stronger navy, more Intimate trade relations, and the maintenance of a white
Australasia: these are the great points
that the New Zealand people desire
England to face ln the Conference of
Takes Great Interest in Plans for Beautifying   Ottawa.
and a concrete Instance of this ls af-
forded by a proposition which His Ex-
cellency has Just made.
Acting largely on bis suggestion the
Improvement commission has removed
the unsightly fence opposite the Rl-
deau hall grounds and beside that part
of the park leading down to what ia
known as Governor's bay. The old
park's board erected stables and a
storage shed which do not add to the
appearance of things and as they are
of little utility they will probably be
removed by the commission. This, with
the removal of tbe fence will afford
easier access to the river.    .
The main part of His Excellency's
scheme, however, ls that the point In
question at the entrance of the park
be turned into a flower garden of perennial blooms. He Is prepared to sup
ply the planu and bulbs if the school
children of the city will undertake to
attend to the cultivation. This is re-
garded as an excellent method of Instilling in the rising generation a personal interest ln the city's beautlfica-
tion. When formally made Earl Grey's
proposal will doubtless be very gladly
acceded to. The few to whom His Excellency has communicated his idea
have expressed their warmest appreciation of lt and of the kindly Interest
he takes ln his home city.

Commemoration of Fulton'a Earliest Experiments With Steam.
Bordeaux, May 1.���The International
Maritime Exposition, for which preparations have been ln progress for more
than a year, was formally opened today
with fitting ceremonies. The closing
date will be October 31st. The exposition is intended fittingly to commemorate the successful application of steam
to navigation 100 years ago and ln this
connection the exposition ls of special
Interest to the United States. The motive for holding the celebration in Bor*
deaux is found ln the tact tbat In 1803,
four years before Fulton's successful attempt on the Hudson with the first
steamboat, he made his initial essays In
steam navigation on the River Loire
near here.
The exposition Is housed In a number
of handsome buildings erected on the
great square of the "Qulnconces" facing the River Garonne. The history of
navigation from the earlleBt times ls
graphically illustrated by the various
displays. The collection of exhibits embraces models of every kind of ship,
ancient and modern, commercial and
naval, together with an illustrated display of all that pertains to ocean geography and to river and sea navigation
Says Only Millionaires Can Afford te
Pay Leaa for a Suit.
"Why don't you make the cheaper
clothes���suits selling below $16?" The
question was asked tbe Semi-ready
salesman. "Simply because the cheaper
clothes are the most expensive apparel.
Only a millionaire can afford to Indulge
in cheap garments. With the. enormous
amount of shoddy cloth hurled on the
market since the rise In the cost of
woolens, a man who pays less than 118
or $20 for a suit gets mighty poor cloth
for his money. It costs lust as much to
make a cheap suit as it does to make a
good one, so that the man who pays
$26 or |30 for a suit gets more value for
his money. The Semi-ready factory is
kepts as busy as it can be tailoring
.wits that men can bank on."
