Tbe .'.lock market for the paat week
was steady, with prices firm. There
aeemed to be a revival of business both
in Spokane and on Eastern exchanges,
British Columbia and Alberta stocks being very active on such markets.
Thu feature of the weeks tradings
was the rapid advance and unprecedented demand* for International Coal,
These shares advanced trom & to 6
cents during the week, and showed
every Indication of going still higher
before any reaction sets in. Nss reason
can be given for thin Hurry other than
the Intention of increasing the par value
of tlie Block to $100 per Bhare, and plac-
Ing the aame on the Montreal and Toronto exchanges, thereby making a much
larger market for Uie stock.
Rambler-Cariboo had another flurry
during one day's tradlug but sagged
again with but few trades effected. Con*
solidated Smelters were uninteresting
and almost unchanged. Giant of Kossland Ib in demand at higher prices owing to the purchase of this property
by Spokane parties and lta amalgamation with the California. Western Oil
Consolidated reacted slightly and waa offered more freely and at lower figures

great extent.

crata of Great Britain last night welcomod their Russian comrades who
bave come to London for the purpose
of holding u congress free from official
interference at the Holborn town hall.
The surging crowds Inside and outside
the building soon resolved themselves
Into a great demonstration against the
Anglo-Russian entente, and nearly all
lhe delegates spoke ln opposition to an
entente between the two governments,
and in favor oi uu understanding between tbe two people agalnat the common loe, despotism and repression.
The meellng was a remarkable display of thc International solidarity or
the Social Demoerau.. leu.y Meyers
liynuiaii, the most prominent of the
English Socialists, dellevered an address In which he declared that the
English Socialists were heart and soul
with their Kussian comrades and
wished them complete victory agalnat
their "Infernal" enemies.
One of tho Russian delegates, M.
Mishkuvlsky, make the speech of the
evening. He appealed to the British
Socialists to start on agitation against
the attempt lhat Sir Edward Grey, thc
loreign secretary, la uow making to
bring about an entente between Russia
and Great Britain which would enable
British capital to further oppress the
people of Russia.
"By the help of your good Socialists,"
said Mlshkovisky, "you will be able to
force your government to refuse to Russia the gold with which to crush what
la the beginning of the Socialist revolution of the world."
German, Polish, Lettish and Italian
delegates spoke ln tbe same strain. The
speeches were punctuated by the singing of revolutionary hymns. The actual

Grand Forks, May 24.���The labor difficulties In Southern British Columbia
are not confined to the white laborers
alone.. A well-known Chinese contractor
has -informed your correspondent that
he has been paying his Chinese wood-
choppers $2.50 a day and they now have
demanded $3 per day. He further added
tbat a couple of years ago there waa no
trouble to secure any number of Chinese
Laborers who would work contentedly,
but now great difficulty ls enperlenced
In securing their services at any price.
Following the report that the smelter
employees were likely to be granted an
Increase In their wages to $3 per day
for eight hours' work comes the report
today that the local hotel mon are very
seriously considering the advisability of
raising the price of board some 10 per
cent. The hotel men claim that owing
to the high prices of provisions this
small Increase Ib justifiable. It ls not
as yet known what action the smelter
employees will take If the proponed action ot the hotel men raaterlallzs but
they will undoubtedly take home action
to counteract the increase in the prices
of board.

Becker Suspected of Murder of Amelia
Staffeldt���Dlepoaed of Bloodstained Clothing.
New York, May' 25.���Further damaging evidence has been found against
Henry Becker, the suspect held for the
murder of Amelia Staffeldt to Elmhurat,
L. I��� Wednesday, according to the police today, following the dramatic confession of Becker beside the coffin of
the girl victim in which he said that
ho saw the murder committed and declared that lt was done by a man In
whose company he was, but whose
name he did not know.
The police report that they found ln
a Chinese laundry at Elmhurat a shirt
which Becker had taken there after the
murder. The shirt had two large spots
oh It which looked as though they were
blood stains. The shirt wus obtained
by means of a laundry ticket that was
found in Becker's pocket. The discovery ot the garment with Its suspicious
spots is considered significant In view
of Becker's Btatement that he had nothing to do with the murder excepting
that he stood by as a witness.
The police argue that the stains are
of blood and could not have been made
unless Becker stood closer to the victim of the crime than he admits. Another link in the chain ot Incriminating
evidence Ib a small hankerchlef which
Becker had In his possession. In one
corner there is embroidered the initial
"S," the handkerchief that was missed
on Wednesday afternoon by Mrs. Slm-
onson shortly after the disappearance
of Becker and his companion, who had
cleansed their hands at her pump. There
are several small spots upon the hand-
chief and the dectictlves say they are
blood stains. They will be analyzed by
a chemist. Mrs. Slmonson has Identified the handkerchief as that of her boh.
The pollco have secured a minute description of Bocker'a companion and
havo every confidence they will have
him tn custody within 24 hours.
Ottawa, May 25.���Trade returns made
up to the 10th March and sent out by
the department ot trade and commerce
snow that the customs taxes collected
during the previous twelve months were
$53,006,545. In the previous year the
amount was $45,129,089, which shows an
Increase of nearly eight million dollars
ln the year. In the last year of Conservative rule lt wae $19,833,279, and
that was about the average of the previous five years. Mr. Foster had collected as high as $24,000,000 ln oue year
during his term of offlce, but when the
taxes reached that amount he straightway reduced the duties and brought
down the receipts. The present govern-
ment has more than doubled the customs taxation ln the last eight -years,
and laat session made the tariff a grade
The    minister of cuatoma    contends
that taxation has not been increased,
because the percentage of duty on the
total imports ls not greater than ten
years ago.   As a matter of fact there
has been no reduction even in the percentage, lf account Is taken of taxation
transferred from customs to excise, and
of corn formerly re-shipped in bond but
now valued as an Import.   But the real
burden of taxation ia not the precentage
paid on the cost of the goods.   It Ib the
actual Bum    taken   out of the people
through the custom houae.   Mr. Fielding
does not pretend to collect the revenue
without the people paying It.   He has
found no outside paymasters who were
not there before the change of government.    As a general rule the customs
duty ls added to the cost of the goodB,
and the clstomer pays not only the tax
itself but the merchant's profit on the
tax.    Where there  ls competition  between home and foreign producers ln
manufactured goodB the price may not
be increased by the full amount ot the
duty. But the condition has not changed
in this respect ln the past ten yeurs.
So If the customs revenue per head haB
increased by about 100 per cent., as lt
has, the burden of taxation has doubled.
There ls one obvious fallacy ln the
claim   that   taxation ls not Increased
when the percentage of duty on  the
value ls the    same.     That argument
takes no account of higher prices.   A
large part .of the gain reported in Canadian  imports  is  not an  increase ln
quantities.   Prices are higher and the
same    quantity    imported    represents
much greater value.   The Importer may
have to pay $150 for the same supplies
that he bought ten or twelve years ago
for $100.   If the duty ls 25 per cent, he
pays in taxes $37.50 when he formerly
paid $25. The minister of customs would
say that taxation has not Increased. As
a matter of fact the consumer is bearing a treble burden, paying not only the
extra cost of the goods but the extra
taxation on the extra cost and the extra
profit on both.    A large part of Mr.
Fielding's growing revenue Ib obtained
ln that way.
When the postponement of the London election conspiracy triul ts alleged
to be due to the difficulty of getting
Mr. Preston's testimony, the real circumstance seems to he that Mr. Preston
haB kept out of the way tn order to postpone further exposures. Mr. Preston
has hnd no public duties which kept
him away. Ho was not wanted in England because he has been removed from
the London ofllce. The department has
undone much of Mr. Preston's work. It
cancelled his North Atlantic contract.
It re-appolnted Mr. Juat, whom he dismissed from the Immigration offlce after
Just had written to the department
showing how the Arundel printing job
was given out at three times the right
price. It has shown confidence In Mr.
Jury, who accused Mr. Preston of corrupt practices In office nnd declared
that he could not be believed on oath.
But Instead of bringing Mr. Preston
home and ordering hlm to tell the truth
about the ballot switching operations
described by the witness Prltchett, the
government appointed him at Increased
salary on the pretended mission to
Mr. Preston did not go to Japan but
to South Africa, He did nothing there
so far as can be learned except advertise Rhodesia at the expense ot
Canada. Some sort of trumped up mission to Australia waa next devised, but
the whole thing appears to be a scheme
to keep Preston away without giving
him any responsible duties. Now the
"Hugthe-Machlne" character Ib on the
wny to Hong Kong. The one thing
which Mr. Preston could do for the
public benefit was to lend his efforts to
cleur up that Augean stable at home.
This Is the only thing he has avoided
doing, and his name Is now used as an
excuse to prevent the performance of
that wholesome duty by anyone else.

Tide in Britain Already Turning���Exemplary Punishment for Socialist Graftera.
London, May 25.���The week haa
brought some sigus of exasperation from
the leaders of the government as fresh
causes of embarrassment and weakness
appeared. The colonial conference,
which began with invitations to a closer
union and co-operation, ended with protests. Then came the sharpest popular
rebuke ever Bung ln the taee of a Brit-
isn government by an outraged, disgusted public. The Wimbledon majority indicated a complete revulsion of
English public sentiment in the paat
eighteen months. The Radical organs
attempt to argue that lt la only an impression of Brltlah overwhelming opposition to woman suffrage, but thia is
childish evasion of the larger significance of the vote. It waa said more
than six months ago in theae despatches
that Great Britain would turn out the
Campbell-Bannerman government lt lt
got a chance. No sane observer any
longer doubts thla, but this does not tell
half the story. A general election would
now result ln a Unionist landslide almost as great as the Uberal vote ln
An object lesson In the enforcement
ot the laws for purity ln civic administration which has lust been given ln
the English courts may be studied with
interest.   Nine members of the Social-
ist board controlling West Ham, one
of the poorer districts of Greater London, received examplary sentences at
hard labor for the trifling offence of receiving graft from employers, etc.    It
was freely admitted during the great
campaign in March, which resulted ln
the defeat of the Socialist party which
had been ruining London with municipal
ownership schemes, that the membera
of the council were personally honest
and that their failure waa due to the
Intrinsic Impracticability of their theories.   It has been ln the lower grades
of the public service that the introduction ot Socialist control has brought the
Inevitable sequel of corruption.     The
Socialists  have   controlled West Ham
tor years, and for a long time their representatives on the Board of Guardians
have   been   ruthlessly   plundering   the
public purse.   English Justice ls swift
aud inexorable when a crime la once
discovered and the evidence ot guilt Is
available.   So lt has been ln the present
case.    The  leaders  get two yenrs at
hard labor, which Is an apalllng sentence.   Hard labor in the English penal
system Ib a terrific form ot punishment.
It means the limit of human endurance.
Criminals prefer 10 years' penal servitude whore life ls at least endurable.
This Is so well known that the eftect
of these exemplary sentences upon English public officials will certainly tend
to keep grafting out of public life for
many dayB to come.

The home team then braced up again

Prof.   Delbrueck   Thinks   Disarmament
Would be Provocation Rather
Than Detriment,
Berlin, May 24.���Professor Delbrueck,
the successor of Uauke and Treitactake
lu the chair of history In the University
of Berlin, contributes a remarkable article lo the Preusalsche Jahrbuecher, entitled, "Disarmament and Germany and
Professor Delbrueck says that there
cun be no doubt that the British proposals, as to the arri'ht of armaments,
at the Hague conference, will fail, even
though lt results In Oermany being regarded as the holder of burburlc and
retrograde Ideas. He believes thai the
llrst result of the discussion would be an
Increase of tenBlon between Ihe two
powers, ruther than u rapprochement,
an Increase of the danger of war rather
Ihan Us diminution. The cardlual mistake of those who advocate the arrest
of armaments, he says, ls that they believe their Ideas, If realized, will
sl lengthen the cause of peace. The
very opposlle will be the case.
He draws Ihe conclusion that there
can be no greuter safeguard of peace
than the "greatness and Intensity" of
existing armaments. He does not believe that the coBt of armaments presses
with greater weight on modern Oermany than it did 3D or 40 years ago.
Turning to the differences between
Oermany and England, he rejects with
scorn tbe assertion that England's alleged hostility ls due to envy at the
success of Germany in trade. The British people, he says, ure too great and
too nrble to bo actuated by such paltry
motives. The secret of their mistrust
and hostility Ib mldy and alone in the
Increase of the German fleet, and this
for the simple Teuson that the existence
ot the British Empire depends on the
predominant position of the British
Professor Di'lbrueck asks the question
whether Germany, In order to appease
England shall cease to build ironclads,
or whether there ls not some other
means which, if adopted, would quiet
British susceptibilities. He comes to the
conclusion that Oermany cannot cease
to build ships, hut he thinks thst British
nervousness might vanish If the British
nation finally decided to adopt conscription, and so increase their land forces
that they could view with equanimity
Ihe maritime growth of their rivals.

Church'*   Animal   Record   Ends   With
Trinity Sunday���Services
for Tomorrow.
To morrow will be Trinity Sunday the
feast celebrating the Triune Oodhead, of
Father, Son and Holy Ghost. It markB
the end of the church's annual record
of the cardinal doctrines based on the
events of the life of Christ*. Advent, the
preparation for His coming, Christmas
His birth, Epiphany, His manifestation
to the Oentlles, Lent, His suffering and
death, Easter, His resurrection, His Ascension, Whit-Sunday, the descent of
the Holy Ghost, and Trinity Sunday the
recognition of the Divine Trinity. The
remainder of the church year is undivided and Ibe Sundays merely enumerated as after Trinity are devoted to
general spiritual teaching.
The doctrine of the Trinity ls one of
thc most complex and difficult or all the
Christian doctrines, or indeed of all
problems of religion and philosophy.
St. Patrick's explanation of it to his
Irish Hock by the simile of Uie three
leaved Shamrock ls perhaps the best
that can be offered.
Readers of   Kipling  will   remember
the alleged translation of a Hindu fragment:
"The Three In One and One ln Three?
Not so
To my own gods I go
It may be they will give more ease
Than  your  cold Christ, and  Tangled
There is nothing ln any other system
of belief, ancient or modern, that corresponds in any way to the doctrine
of the Trinity. It la sometimes said that
the gods of Greece were originally worshipped as representative of different
functions or attributes of one Power.
Uut the origin of the gods of the ancients, or rather of belief in tbem, is
remote and confused. It is probably
nearer truth to say that out of their
many gods the Greek philosophers were
slowly evolving the conception of one
God with many functions. But the national decadence that followed the successive conquest of Roman and Macedonian turned, Greek philosophy into
mere mysticism and darkness. But certainly the nearest non-Christian analogy
to belief In a Holy Spirit was Socrates'
faith ln bis "divine prompter."
But none of the other religions of
Asia���and Asia has been the birthplace
ol every religion and pseudo-religion,
even or the cults ot theosophy und
Christian Science���contain any suggestion ol the special spiritual presence on
earth of God, sb ls contained in the
Christian doctrine of the Third Person
of the Trinity.

Miraculus Escape,
A pany of stilled mariners. Including John Bennett and J. W. Bannister.
with several lady friends, went out for
a launch ride yesterday afternoon which
nearly had a fatal termination. Thos*
who were in the boat are reticent as to
what really happened Mr. Bennett one
of the pany, on being interviewed, with
great unction denied that he was in the
boat at all, and expressed the opinion
that matters of this kind did not concern the genera] public. He further expressed the opinion that the papers
would do better to publish matters tbat
had to do with the elevation of mankind
and advancing the interests of the country than chronicling eTery little bit of
gossip they could gather in. No objection being ukun to this self-evident
proposition. Mr. Bennett said he had
'y-een in the launch, cut refused to give
the names of the other occupants.
Neither would he tell just how the
launch party came so near meeting with
a fatal ending. From another source it
was learned that the little craft was
allowed to drift below the danger line,
and was not noticed until it became unmanageable Fortunately it was caught
in an eddy, and with the aid of a paddle
one of the occupants was enabled to
reach shore. Mr Bennett went down to
Grohman creek today and will try to get
'he launch back to the dty. The occu
t*snts of the boat were very mod
