A* 1 have itatod, our production
of conl1 in 1000 wai 414,000,000
short torn. Tbe total production
of tbe world was over one billion
short tons. In the combustion of
each pound of ooal about 2 1-3 lbs.
of oxygen ore taken out of our atmosphere and 3 1-8 pounds ot car-
bonis acid are given oil. Take tho
combustion of ths United Btatea coal
alone and Ignoring what additional
supply is added by the consumption
of oil and gas, and by the exhalation of men and animals, the quantity of cacbon dioxide thrown Into
ths atmosphere last year by the consumption of ooal ln this country
was approximately 8,000,000,000,-
000 pounds. What becomes of it?
One of the great consumers of oar?
bon dioxide is the forest, and these
are telng used up even faster that
tht coal. It la true that the cultivation of our farms and the raising of our enormous crops of corn,
of wheat, of hay, of vegetables, etc.
provide for tho consumption of this
product of fuel combustion, but will
thoy be able to do so If we continue to Increase the production and
consumption of coal? One scientist
has told mo that the corn crop of
Kansas will take up as much carbon
dioxide, na all the trees cut In a
year. I am not tn a position to
deny It, but I am Inclined to doubt
On the other hand, leaf decay and
the oxidation of plant life year by
year, form another source of carbon dioxide    which probably equals
tho consumption of It by growing
vegetation. In fact, no less an authority then Kelvin haa been credited with tho prediction that the supply of oxygen will be used up before
the supply of carbon ns represented
by our conl beds and forests. This
would produce a condition that will
mako tho mirth unhabitable by men,
but, before that time arrives, we
mny rest nnsurod thnt mnn's genius
will hnve so subdued and utilised
the forces of nature thnt the need
for the romhufttlon of fuel In tho
production of hent, light nnd pr-wor,
will have passed.

Tho seventeenth meeting of the
City i Council wus held in tho City
Hull un Monduy evening. Mayor
Nicholson presided and there were
present Aid. Campbell, ItobertB, Haworth, Brown, McKinnoll and Muth-
A communication waa road from
the Union uf Canudiun Municipalities stating that a convention was
ti) be bold iu July and extending tu
the Muyol* and Aldermen a cordial
invitation to be present.
.On motion tbo letter was received
aud filed and tho Clerk instructed
to write a suitable acknowledgment.
A letter was read from a Toronto
firm stating that they would like tu
tender for any bolting thut tho city
might need for tho proposed electric
lighting plant. ;
On motion it was ordered to Luke
tho same course. i
A communication was road from
Constable flatbed, of Chemainus, re-.
lutivo to a bill which was returned
by the Council at the last meeting.'
The accqunt was for $8/55 and was
incurred iu taking charge of an al- \
loged citizon of Ladysmith whom tbe
constable found wandering almost
naked and apparently in a demented
state in tho neighborhood of West-
holme. The Constable wrote that if
tho Council refused to pay tho account he would havo to refer the
matter to tho Attorney-General and
suggested that the Council could collect the money.from tho man himself
Aid. Brown thought thc best thing
tp be dono would be to try and get
the man to puy the account himself
und so settle all disputes.
Mayor Nicholson remurkod that
they would not be going out of the
way by doing so.
Aid, Matheson was rather chary of
such a procedure. . If they started
to meddle with it the chances were
that they -would havo to pay It themselves. So for tbey had had nothing to do -with it.
Aid. McKinnell asked if Constable'
Callander had kept tho men In the
city gaol?
Constable Callander stated that ho
was asked by Dr. Frost to take
charge of tho man for two or three
days. So soon as the doctor certified ho was aide to go, he allowed
him his liberty again. The man had
told him that ho would pay all expenses insldo of two months.
His Worship thought that if tho
circumstances were explained to the
man ho would probably make ah effort to settle up sooner.
On the motion of Aid. McKinnell,
seconded by Aid. Haworth the Council resolved thnt they could not seo
thoir wny cloar to pay tho bill.
Tho report of tho 'Returning Officer
stated that tho result of the poll on
tho Electric Light By-law was: For

An invitation to tho Moyor and
Aldermen to attend the celebration
of Victoria Day in Nannimo on Mny
25th was ordered to. bo filed and
suitably acknowledged.
•A lottor from a Winnipeg engineering firm in regard to tho electric
light plant was ordered filed for fu-
ture reference.- '
Accounts totalling 9184.85, of
which 91-13.85 represented tho money expended on the improvement of
Oatacre street last week, woro presented nnd referred to tho Finance
Road Foreman Callander reported
that there wero two loaks In the wator pipe leading to thc cometory and
that Mr. McAskill was willing to repair tho pipes provided tho city
would furnish a man to bore tho
pipes. Thero was also a ditch on
the West end of Fifth Avenue which
needed to bo deepened in order to
carry away tho stagnant water from
tho street.
It was decided to furnish a man
to assist Mr. McAskill nnd to deepen the ditch on Fifth Avenue.
Dr. Fagun's lottor, laid ovor from
last week caused a little discussion
ori being brought up again. Dr. Fagan asked for a donation from tho
city to holp build a snnitorium for
Aid. Haworth thought tho 'Government should provide tho money.
They exempted such corporations us
tho 'C.lMl. Company from taxation,
and then Municipalities wero asked
to contribute monoy whivh tho gov-
vernmont should provide.
Aid. Matheson said tho city could
certainly do with all tho money they
could scrape up. But such an institution would bo beneficial to the
Province and probably to Ladysmith
Ho thought thoy might givo a little
something, and moved that 950 bo
Aid. Brown seconded, and the motion curried, Aid. Haworth alono
voting against it.
Tho Electric Light By-lnw was
thon afllrmed and Anally passed.
In this connection a lottor wus
read from Mr, Isaac Gould in which
he objected to and protested against
tlie election for tho reason that it
was not a secret ballot.
Aid. Haworth suggested it .would
bo in ordor to locato a site for tho
power-house nnd get ready to . put
their debentures. With regard to tho
latter tt was agreed to advortise for
tenders in tho columns of tho "Monetary Times."
There followed a long discussion
on tho quostion of a site. Aid. Matheson suggested tho spot on which
tho merry-go-rounds wore last pitched, right in front of whore the now
Post Office buildings aro going up.
Aid. McKinnoll favored the Green,
somowhoro noar tho Pavilion. His
Worship hnd In view a placo below
lho bunkers. Tho flrst point to be
achieved was economy in tho hauling of conl nnd tho socond a hnnriy
wator supply, Tho site mentioned
by tho Mayor best fulfilled theso conditions   and   it   was Anally decided
that Mayor Nicholson should inter-'
view, tho representatives of the Wei-
Hngton Colliery Company as to whether this situ- could be obtained.

Aid. McKinnell. Aim%iiMc&innel - observed that they had' agreecl on a
course of action before ascertaining
which site would be tbe cheapest for
their purpose, nnd without going to
seo whether thore was n site below
the bunkers. His Worship said there
wus a site and he know they could
got it. Whereupon Aid. McKinnell
remarked that tho Council was kept
too much in the dark on these points
If the Mayor hud information he
thought it should bo imparted to the
Aldermon as the representatives of
tho citizens. If they were not worthy to havo it they had no right to
occupy their chairs. It was public
money they wero spending.
Mayor Nicholson repliod'that' he
could not bo oxpected to glvo away
information imparted to him privnto-
ly and confidentially. As for tho
spending of the public money, ' the
wholo Council aud not ho individually authorized it.
The Council thon adjourned.
At a meeting of the Management
Committee of tho Football club lust
night it wus decided to end the city
league "by playing the Shamrocks
and Contralias on Sunday in the final. Of course thore were other
games to be played, but thu Thistles hadn't a game to thoir credit,
and tho Hearts hail no show to win.
Accordingly it was agreed to. play
the Shamrocks uud Centralias together for tbe final.
Tbe game should produce a keon
struggle Tbe Shamrocks havo n
point thc bost of it and a draw will
give tbem a tio for first pluce. Tho
Centralias have been strengthened
since they last played and should
make the wearers of tho green travel
to reach that cup. As it is tho first
Sunday game for n long timo tho
game will doubtless be well patronized. Mr. Hugh Fulton will act as
referee, and the kick-off is fixed for
2:30 p.m.
Will Be Shortly Commenced in Town
by Mr. Winch.
Ladysmith is to have a cigar factory. Mr. Percy K. Winch has rented tho store next to tho Grand Hotel un tbe Esplanade .and will commence business su soon us ever hc
can get tho fittings, the men, and
tho stock, or in a week's timo ut
tho latest.
Mr. Winch was for five years a
partner in the firm of H. Behnsou &i
Co., the manufacturers of tho Big B
cigars, Ho has therefore, an intimate and practical knowledge of tho
business, and has the further advantage of being well known in town
Thero Is no doubt at all that the
factory will bo a groat and immediate success. Hitherto tho town hus
supported, und supported well, two
Nanaimo industries. Now it will
huve a cigar of its own, manufactured in town. "Support home industries" is a motto that needs no
commendation to the townspeople of
BAIUUSBU'RG, May 13.—The second of the series of conspiracy cases
growing out of tho contracts for the
furnishing and equipping of the new

CHICAGO, May 12.—A despatch
to the Tribune from Laporte says, a
complete solution of the mystery of
the Guiness .murder farm is expected
within 43 hours. The officials who
have bocn conducting the search for
the victims of the house of many
crimes add this fact today. They
refused however, to mako known
their purpose other than to say that
the final step may be taken today
or tomorrow at the latest.
The mystery surrounding four of
tho fourteen deaths, wldch occurred
at the place, is cleared by the allegation that Ray Lamphere, the former farm band, prisoner in the county jail, set fire to the house of Mrs.
Guiness on tho morning of April 28
nndthereby caused the denth of the
widow nnd three children. For this,
if proven guilty, he is liable, under
the provisions of the Indiana state
laws to conviction for murder In the
first degree as well as for arson. Indictments against him upon both
these charges will be asked for of
tho grand jury on Wednesday.
As to thu maimer of death oi tho
ten murdered persons whose bodies
were covered in a little patch of
ground, guarded by closely woven
wire netting, the silence of the officers in response to queries as to the
arrest oi one or more accomplices
provides the only answer, that the
victims came to their death from
the administration of' a deadly a-
mount of cblorol has been proven.
The places at which the drugs wero
purchased during the last eight years
havo been found. The corpses then
were dismembered either in the
chamber of horrors on the second
floor tfTthe Guiness home or In the
basement hus been shown to the satisfaction of the Investigators. Two
knives, one a six-inch dagger, and '
the other a needle-pointed doublo
razor-edged surgeon's knife, has been
found in tho ruins.

LONDON. May 13.—With Ihe object of checking the wanton slaughter of birds, Lord Avobury (Sir,
John Lubborek) introduced a bill in
the Houso of Lords today prohibiting the importation of plumage except that of certain species of birds
set forth in the bill. Lord Avebury
pointed out this measure was framed on the same lines as the New
York state law on the subject. It
entails heavy fines for breaking the
Lord Avobury says that unless the
British parliament follows the ox-
ample of tho New York legislature,
tho extinction of tho most beautiful
species of bird life is only a question of time.
SAN FIMNCTSCO. Cal., May 12.
—Tho visit of the battleship fleet' at
San Francisco continues to run in
a perfect whirl of entortainme-nt,
amazing in its extont and variety.
The programme arranged for today
provides for excursion trips for oil.-

and Palo Alto, a'reception and ball
for tho enlisted men nt the Auditorium tonight, band concerts, athletic
sports, nnd n reception at Proiinv

hand in killing them and in disposing of their bodies is said to have
been established without question.
Tho one remaining question, that of
whether she had assistance in her
crimes, is to be mot by the action
that is expected almost hourly.
Hero and there bits of evidence
have leaked out, but the great array
of facts it is suid was secured from
statements made by Lamphere.
The chief agent in securing tho
confidence of the prisoner has boen
Rev. E. A. Schelt, pastor ot the
First Methcdist church, who ever
since tho day of the prisoner's Incarceration, has been a visitor at his
coll. On tho report of tho clergyman tho Investigators . havo built
their cose.
Mrs. Colpham of Laporte, who for
six yenrs was a' neighbor of Mrs.
Guiness, says that on tho only occasion on which she called upon her
a strong breeze coming through an
open window blew aside the fold of
a loose house dress wbich Mrs. Guineas was wearing nnd revealed about
her body a wide belt containing
pouches of various sizes nnd sheaves
which scorned to have been construct
ed for knives.
Thero Is a possibility that the
grand jury which convened yesterday
will begin Investigation of tbe chnr-
ges im ainst Ray Lamphere today.
Lost night prosecutor Smith said
ho might tnko the ense before tho
jury today or tomorrow.
Tho Socialist meeting in tbo Finn
Hall on Saturday evening was vory
thinly attended. Mi'. Parker Wll
Hams, M.P.P., was the speaker, and
ho delivered a truly interesting address on "Socialism and Religion."
His first point was that Socialism
did not Interfere with the creeds und
beliefs of its followers. There was
room for either the Alhiest or tho
Christian, but the former type of Socialist was always singled out ns being a product of Socialism. As a
mutter of fact, Socialism stood for
a definite economic theory, aimed nt
tho material emancipation of tho
individual. Religion represented a
spiritual system which had for its
object tho spiritual snlvation of tbe
individual. Whore was the conflict?
Tho real point wus this. Socialism
was seeking tho overthrow of capitalism. Either this object was right
or it was wrong. If it was right,
tho Church could not refuse its assistance, and herein would lie tho
great test of Its usefulness.
Thero was a point ol conflict in
the attitude taken up by the two
systems in regard to environment
and its influence on character. Socialists argued that you could only
change the man* by changing tho
circumstances aud conditions of his
life. Tbe Church on the other hand
contended that you could only
change the conditions of life by
changing the heart of the individual
against this position uf the
church, Mr. Williams argued that the,
mon in whose hearts this change was
supposed to huve takon place differed to no appreciable extent from the
men who were in the outer darkness
of,unbelief. For example could any
one in tho hall toll him whether
Mr. Dunsmuir. wus nn Athiest or a
Christian. Then there were men like'
Mussey, McDonald, Eaton and others, ull of them millionaires, and all
of them*model Christians, and pillars of the church. Did their methods in business diller at all from
those of other men who had no connection with the church? As a mutter of fact tho conditions of success
in modern business were so absolutely rotton that a premium was placed on dishonesty. After going carefully over the ground he subscribed
to the Socialist position that envir-l
onment shaped and moulded charac-1
ter rather than that character deter-,
mined and influenced environment,     j
Now there was absolutely no conflict between Christianity and Soc-'
ialism. Tho origin of both wus very
similar. Christianity was on its beginning a working class movement,
begun by a band of working men.
Moreovc.* they would flnd that tho
groat reforms of the world had originated from tbo bottom rather than
from the top strata of society.
Ill dealing from this point Mr. Williams took up the question of tbo
declining attendance of tbe working
men iu the various churches. His
reasons for this were that the church
is losing tho hold it used to ' havo
by reason of tho muss of religious
superstitions that bound und hold,
tlie people. Tho growth of educa-!
tion, the discoveries of science, and
tho results of historic criticism,, had
all tended to dissipate thc old super-'
stitions and tho church could no:
longer depend, to tbo sumo extont
upon its appeal to the supernatural.
To live it muBt devote Its attention
to social questions and gather up
into its activities tho common interests. Unless it did something of
this sort its power and influence
would still further decline.
The Rev. Mr. McMillan, who wns
presont at the meeting, roso to ask
a question und made rather a lengthy reply to Mr. Williams. With
much of what Mr. Williams had suid
he wns in perfect agreement, but tho
attitude of 'Socialism iu regard to
onv romnent wus wrong and mischievous. If, by an act Of Parliament
tomorrow they could change the conditions of life and existence no gooii
would result to mankind unless individually it was ready and prepared for it. Chango the Individual
heart, und everything else would
change of Itself. As for the effects
On religious belief of the discoveries
of modern science and the conclusion
of scholarly criticism God had hot,
as Mr. Williams had asserted, been
driven further and further from man
and the universe. On thc contrary,
what had been established was thut
back of nil tho laws and forces
which had discovered and explained
was a supremo intelligence, a design
cr, a planer, a creator. It was
God. Tho Church had not dono its
duty. It was not today what it
should bo. But In Christ's teaching
they had tho ono effectual r*midy
for tho ills of the world. They were
no slaves of chance or onvir. UHOllt,
but freo men with tbe will aivl the
power of determining thci; own character and making their own destiny.
Iwldie  Conway's    Hare Achievement
In MeGill Examinations.
According to Eastern mail advices
Mr, _., J. Conway, familiarly known
here as l-jlilie Conway, has covered
himself witli glory in tho linal examinations at MeCUl University, Mr.
Conway is taking the science coarse,
witli special attention to metalliferous mining ami tlie smelting industry, and in this year's examinations
he Is easily the most distinguished
student oi the unversity.
It is Eddie's third your and in both
thu metallurgical course and lire assaying he headed tno list. This in
itself' is no moan achievement, but
Eddie did better lliau that. Apparently he got pot-mission to take the
fourth year papers as well, and iu
the uietuMurgical course he made tho
second man to get through, while in
lire assaying lie was tho only man
to get a pass -witli the fourth year
papers. Thus he has not only carried 00 all the honors in his own
year, but actually he has crowded
two years into one and carriod the
duy with dying colors.
lt is a rare and brilliant achievement, aad Eddie's numerous friends
and indeed the town, may well feel
proud of him.

The question of a power house for
the site wns also discussed at some
length. Somo of the aldermen had
been pondering the subject and three
suggestions -were made. The first
came from Aid. Mathoson who proposed the spot below the Esplanade,
Where last the merry-go-rounds wero
pitched. Aid. McKinnoll favored tho
Green, somewhere noar the pavilion.
His Worship, the Mayor, expressed
his preference (or a site between the
Wellington Colliory Company's bunkers and the transfer wharf. After
some discussion the majority of the
a.dermen declared in favor of this
site and Mayor Nicholson was deputed to find out from tho responsible officials of the company whether
or not lt was available to the city.
On tho lines that' the discussion
took there is no doubt 'that tho
bunker site had more to recommend
its selection than either of the others. The first consideration Ib the
haulage of tho coal. In this respect
the site adjoining tho bunkers easily
held the advantage over the others.
It will lie possible to uso the small
cars that are now employed to carry
washed conl, and to fix up a short
trestle spur so thnt the contents   of
the cars can be dumped out right at
tho boilers. Of course, short spurs
could huve beon laid In to cither of
tho other sites mentioned, but but
the coal would in any case have been
further to haul. Again, thoro con

LAPORTE, May 11.—The mayor
of Laporte, after a conference with
prominent citizens last night, declared that the investigation into
the Guiness murder mystery will be
pushed with tho greatest vigor.
"Up to tho present time," said the
mayor, "thero- has boon only a luko
warm inquiry into tho amazing case.
B** this timo all tho lakes of the
Guiness farm should^have been dragged. Tho pond back ot tho graveyard has not boen investigated. It
will \be dragged Immediately. -I suspect that moro tragedies will bo discovered,"
LAPORTE, Ind., May ll.-Plcklng
up tlio shreds of tho evidence tending to connect Ray Lamphere with
the deaths of Mrs. Guiness and hor
Andrew Holgelen, ls the main pur"
pose of tho authorities hore today.
Whether search for more bodies will
bo prosecuted has not been finally
determined, Sherill Smutzer Indicating yesterday that further excavating may bo postponed until tomorrow.
Tho sheriff has found difficulty ' In
carrying out the work tecause of the
morbidly curious persons who have
flocked to the place where the ten
corpses wero discovered last week.
Friday the excavation in tho barn
yard was hindered und Saturday it
was halted by the crowds, it is
expected that the numbers ot visitors will be lessened today, some 15,-
000 persons having Inspected the
grounds yesterday and presumably
sutisiied their curiosity.
The grand jury was to have met
today to consider the Lamphere ease
but this procedure has been postponed fur a  week.
Experts, were called Into the affair by Sheriff Smutzer and they advised this cuurse, although Prosecuting Attorney Smith announced that
he waa ready to go into court with
the evidence at hand. Since then
the case hoe been strengthened by
tho discovery of Lamphcre's trunk,
containing several letters which he
said will establish tbe prisoner's par
ticipatlon in the murder ot Holgelen
and by the information extracted (rom a number of persons
wbo were intimate with the prisoner
to leurn from him much concerning
his relations with Mrs. Guiness. If
the sheriff discovers more evidence it
is likely that the caso will' be pushed toward a conclusion rapidly.
Prosecutor Smith wanted Lamphere to go before the jury today
und endeavor to clear the dock of
several minor cases already scheduled, Thc attitude ol the detence has
not been revealed. The prisoner has
received stringent ordors from his
attornoy not to discuss the charges
against hjm and the attorneys have
not committed themselves to any
particular llne\ot action. They have
been free in announcing theories to
account for Lamp-hero's action before, and following his arrest, and
havo also given ouj alleged evidence
which they sny established the fact
that Mrs. duinrss and not Lamphere, sot flre to the houso.
Thus far efforts to substantiate the
announcements by the defence have
failed, several persons having, repudiated lntcrvlows accredited to them
by Lamphcre's, clolms whilo the tacts
found by the four physicians who
performed post mortem examinations
do not boar out tho conditions of
the defence.
Word haa been received from the
Provincial government ln regard to
tbe application mado by tho city a
short time ago for the right to take
water from tho south fork of tbe Nanaimo river for city purposes.
Government Agent Bray received
word that the government had sustained his decision to grant the city,
this privilege.
It will be remembered that the
Wellington Colliery Company, when
the hearing came up, made objection
o tho city's application and wished
lo hold It up unless the city agreed
to certain tonne laid down by the
company. Just what grounds the
company based Its contentions on it
not known. However they cannot
be very substantial as the order in
council of the government shows.
According to the act, as contended
by Mr, Simpson, wbo wae acting1 for,
the city by exuppropriution they,
could ln any case socure water so tho
case of tho company was very flraey.
There are certain charges in connection with the application, $50 tor
recording and ti annually lor privilege, and these will llkoly be passed
at the council meeting this evening..
Now    that    tbe city has a  clear
ight to the South Forks water, no-
doubt active step! will be undertaken by tho council to push the work,
and secure tho new water at as early
a date as possible. There are a.
lot of details in connection with the
work, such ns the determining of.
how ths Work shall be done, by city
or contract work, the kind of piping;
lo uso, the raising of the money and!
so on, so tbat the council may expect a busy time of it for the noxt
few month!. Whether the work will)
be finished by next tall and tho newt
water be used li highly problematical ln view of the many difficult)
problem!, facing thl council In connection therewith.

NEW YORK, May O.-An Important decision was handed down in
the courts the other day, whereby in
cases of children born in a certain
religious faith, and through the
death of parents lelt In charge of a
person of a different belief, it ie
Justifiable to tako them out of the
care of that person and place them
ln charge of a guardian who will
rear them In the faith In which they
were born. Tho children in question were bom in the Catholic faith
and by tho doath ol their mother,
wart left in charge of their stepfather. Although the latter had provided well for the children and had
been a good guardian, the tact that
he was a Protestant caused tho
court to order the children placed in
charge of a Catholic until they
should reach the age of maturity,
and bt able to decide for themselves
