Denver, Col. April 12 —The distriot is, in a turmoil over the detention of the President of the Western Federation of Miners, C.
Moyer, being detained in prison by
the military authorities.
The facta of the oases are these.
The Western Federation printed a
plaoard whioh bad for a background the Amerioan flag protesting against the wrongful acts
whioh were being done by Governor Peabody under the shadow ot
the flag which iB supposed to fl;
over a free people.
He waB arrestsd on the teohnioal
ground of insulting the flag of his
oountry at the instance of the
military authorities and handed
over k the civil arm whioh committed him for trial and plaoed
bail at $600. This was furnished
but Moyer was again arrested and
brought before a judge who
plaoed the bail at ¥3000. This
was furnished. Whereat the
military authorities arrested him
themselves aud are keeping him in
gaol on their own aooount.
His friends moved for a writ of
habeas corpus and obtained it.
The judge concerned demanded the
person of C. Moyer and was refused
point blank. He then summoned the military authorities before
him for contempt of oourt. The
military refused to attend and the
governor of the state declares tbat
as there is a state of martial law
proclaimed the judges bave no
iurisdiotion over Moyer nor over
the military who are detaining
him.
On the other side it is urged that
aB the military in the first plaoed
brought Moyer before the civil
are they now go baok because they
are not willing to aooept the judgment delivered. In the meantime
the state is in a condition of ohaoB
and Moyer is still deprived of his
liberty without a charge being
preferred against him.

tions*

"this is the last telegram I receiv
ed and it says that England has
decided to intefrere in the war.
Japan will get the disputed territory and as this is all they want
and are a peaceful nation, peaoe
will be agreed to shortly."
Asked why England took this
stand he Baid, "to protect her trade

SEALING COMMISSION REPORT
Grant of an Additiodal Subsidy to
Mail Service to Australasia-
Ottawa, April 12.—The report of
the Sealing commission, which recently sat in London, is before the
Capadian government. The' Rue-
sains are prepared to pay damages
on two of the vessls, but not on the
remaining four. The owners of the
vessels will now be consulted.
The Dominion government has
agreed to extend until May, 1905,
the contract for the mail subsidy
for a line of steamships from Vanoouver to Australia. The oontraot
expired last spring, but there is a
better setvioe this season, and in
consequence the Dominion gives
$45,000 of an inorease. The entire
subsidy now totals $170,000.
It is understood .that when the
new government steamer GausB
goes to meet the steamer Neptune,
it will take one officer and ten
mounted policemen who will be
stationed on Hudson's Bay te supplement to small forces now looated
there.
Captain Bernier will navigate .the
Gauss to the mouth of the MacKenzie river. The steamer was
built three years ago' for tbe German expedition to the Antartio.

LORD'S DAY LEGISLATION.
The Lord's day legislators have a
fresh   antagonist, the Adventists,
who, reading  the  Bible, disoover
nothing of keeping the first day
rather than the seventh day holy,
aad consequently oome to the conclusion that tbere is no adequate
authority for changing the Decalogue and insist upon keeping Saturday, aa do the Jews, instead of
Sunday.    Now il these people are
compelled by law to keep the first
day and   their  religion  compels
them to keep the Beventh, they are
in a parlous state and are much
kandioapped in the world's   race
for riohes.   Were they Neapolitans
they would hug the ohains of such
belief and deolare tbe more holi
daya the.better.   Being merely Ca-
nadians theydou't like it and manfully are not afraid to express their
dislike.
Many very good people refer to
the first day ae the Sabbath and
target tkat the Jewish observance
of tbat day was done away with in
keeping the first day as a feast day
They still insist, that the Hebraio
command, whioh certainly applied
to tbe seventh day until the change
oame, shall be carried out. Indeed
they go farther and extend that
commandment to the forbidding of
salt amusement as well as work
And it is right here that the gen-
eral sense of the people is against
the movement. The keeping of one
day in seven was made a part of
tit*. Jewish religion but from the
ecenomle standpoint alone the or
dlnanoe is salutary. More work
can be got out of a man in his lifetime who rests each seventh day
than out of the man who knows no
Met The State oannot allow a man
to be worked every day. It is not
healthful. That man's descend-
eats? will averagely be degenerates.
They will not be of the same physical strength. Tbey will beoome
even -more quickly used up than
wete their fathers. But there is a
limit to things. Some people, such
aa railway employees, oannot observe any particular day as the
seventh or.the first. But the State
should oare to Bee that these men
are all allowed one day's rest in
■even. As far as health is concerned it is the same to a man if he
lies off on Tuesdays or Thursdays.
But the observance of the one
day in the week as a day of rent is
a boon which the world got from the
Jews. Tbat the day of rest was
treed from its Jewish stringencies
of interpretation is something that
Christianity must be given oredit
tor, whether the man be a Christian or not. It is therefore appropriately the Lord's day, for He gave
it to ui to be used, not abused.
twelve months in whioh to disal-
ow it. Up to the time ef the sit*
ting of the last session it had nol
done so. Judging from past experiences our provinoial legislators
felt sure that the disallowance
would be forthcoming within the
time limit which had not at that
time expired. Consequently they
enacted another measure hating
exactly tbe same objects and on ex-
aotly tbe same lines. Their wisdom haB .beoome apparent. Tbe
Dominion government has disallowed the first measure which is,
therefore, null and void. But the
second measure slill holds good as
it bas not yet been disallowed. It
will be possibly on the time- honoured and faroically exposed grounds
of being anti-imperial, but neither
Jap nor Chinaman can at present
land without paying a head tax
and passing an examination in
English in the case of the latter and
passing the examination only in
the case of the former. As kng ta
the examination is severe enough
any Japanese who wonld be inclined to indulge in manual labor
would be exoluded.
The Tory papers are kicking at
the disallowance. Then they must
kiok at MoBride for having the
wisdom to re-enaot the law. Sir
Wilfred must really be given credit
for knowing that the second measure had been passed. The only
puzzle to ordinary mortals who
oare rather for the well being of
the province than for the vagaries
of politicians and their changeable
faith and reedy platforms, is why
Sir Wilfred want* to take part in
suoh a farce. He is certainly above
such blatant fooling. British
Columbians want the workers to be
white and British Columbians will
have their wish if fifty Sir Wilfreds
stood in the way and ordered the
sea back like Knut of old.

Grave Scandal unearthed
at the Coast
 ' .V'i
MAGISTRATE NHL1 IJflUMRT
Follows Justice Martin's Example
and Hops on Victoria
Police
Viotoria, April 12.—"A species
of blaokmail," the ''grossest kind
of violation of the law," "a oontraot by the mayor by whioh the
law oan be set aside and treated as
ol no effect." In these end equally as strong terms Polioe Magistrate Hall denounced the aotion
of the oivio offioial* in allowing
Chinamen to traffic ln liquor contrary to the aot.
There seemed at first little remarkable about the oase ol Ktvong
Yee Hing, oharged by the Provinoial Lioenoed Victuallers' Assooia
tion with selling »hiskey withou'
a lioenoe; but it speedily developed
into the most sensational snit ever
heard in the police oourt here.
Evidenoe waB first given by Oity
Treasurer Kent to the effect that
he had received instructions last
year, irom the then mayor. Mr.
MoCandless, to issue lour licences
to Chinamen at $300 per ball year
for eaoh lioenoe. The- city reoeived
1900. He had issued the licences
this year without instructions.
The lioenoes were oalled wholesales
lioenoe, but the Board of Lioenoe
Commissioners never granted them.
The sale was restricted to spirit-
nous liquors brought Irom China
and Japan.
Ex-Mayor MoCandless gave evidence to the effect that he direoted
the licences* to be issued. He stated tbat he had been informed that
the Chinese sold- liquor without
a lioence and he took the matter
up to see what could be done ia
the way ol procuring revenue to
the oity and in the shape of •
lioenoe. Although these licences
were isaued to lour Chinamen it
wm understood that no other
Chinaman selling liquor Would be
molested* The licences did not
prohibit Chinese Irom selling liquor
to white men. The city needed
revenue. He knew the Chinese
oould not be regally granted a lioenoe.
Tim Kee explained how lorty
Chinamen were in a syndicate ana
contributed towards paying Ior the
licences. All the defendants pleaded guilty.
Magistrate Hall took this as an
admission that the licences were
not valid and legal. He styled it
as oue ol the most serious oases
that ever oame belore him under
the lioenoing act as it was admitted,
under oath, that the applications,
were frauds. They were false on
the face ot them. The evidence
showed a complete understanding
between the then Mayor and Tim
Kee, president of the Chinese
board of trade and representing the.
Chinese merchants. If licences of
this nature were to have any bind
ing force the legislature might as
well go out cf business. He expressed condemnation in the
strongest terms, and added:
"Another serious feature, and
this ie a statement under oath, but
not on tlie depoBitions, is tint these
arrangements were brought about
by threatening the Chinese to olose
their business unless they paid tbe
money for the licenoe. This is a
s eofts of blackmail and it should
not le allowed to 90 forth. lithe
Chinese were illegally selling
liquor purely there is maohinery
enough to enforce the law and punish them, instead ol entering into
a oontraot to avoid the law."
He bed no power to oancel the
lieeneee. another board must do
this. But he teit inclined to inflict the heaviest penalty. He referred to the peoular way in whioh
the lioenoes had been obtained
and said: "II this is not forgery,
it oomes pretty olose to it." From
the evidenoe, it seemed to him tbat
the transaction came near to a
oonepiraoy. Fnally, he convicted
the defendants, but allowed them
to go on suspended sentence, upon
suggestion ol the counsel lor the
defence.
