Stanley Kida Sent up for Trial
for Unlawful Act—Engineer
Calder Makes Very Smart
A case not of every day occurrence
was tried thiB morning before Robt.

Court, Stanley Kida, an Austrian,
being charged with placing twn ties
on a rail ut the main line ol the
C. P. R., abuut one mile east of
Clanwilliam. Tne accused wan committed to -land his trial and will be
held pending the Assizes.
The Btory of the captuiu ol Kida
reflects great credit 011 Dave Calder
and .). Rutherford,C. 1'. K. engineer
and liien.an, wbo captured Kida and
brought him into the city. Coming
down the line with a light, engine
Calder noticed the ties on the track
ahead and stopped his engiue to remove the obstruction. ThiB being done
he rellected that as a freight train
waB only 25 minutes ahead of him
the offender must be somewhere in
the vicinity of the offence. Search
was instituted but without discovery
of the culprit and reluctantly but
slowly tbe trip into town was resumed,
Calder in the meantime keeping a
sharp lookout for hia human queBt.
After running a few yards a man
was discerned crowi'ing from one
bush to another to seek biding, and
stopping his iron horse Calder ran
out ami accused him of the deed.
This was admitted by Kida aud he
was, alter buiuc resistance put on
board the engine aud brought iuto
the city- Here he was turned over
by Calder to the Provincial police
after consultation witli the local C.
P.R. Superintendent.' Chiel ol Police

Long Case
— Elliutt than she had   already  given.
Interesting Argument in Tony ||™ n-m °'c^k wheu Mr.Biaok-
stock told the  girl   he  had  finished
with her lor the evening,
The sittings of the Court  of  KeviB-j , m ,
ion tu hear reaBuns why the names ol
certain voters should not  be  stricken   START  WORK  ON    NEW   BANK
(rom the  listB  ut the   distriel which i 	
was held  on   Monday were  not  pro
longed, there being only one case in
which lengthy argument whb resurted
to As a result uf the hearing all but
twenty-three ol the two hundred antl
ten names advertised as being ubjected
tu were eliminated from the voters'
list. Tho '.'.li established their right tu
vote in the cunstituoncy and consequently their names stand.
The contested case was that of Tony
Long, the argument turning on a
question as tu whothcr in Canada a
peistui has a legal right tu change his
name. The cuntention ul Mr. Lung's
tiiuinsel was that ill Canada a man
muy call himself by any name he
pleases As lhe case was unique in
the lucal cuurts it was relerred to the
ullice ul the. Attorney-Genera] Iur a
ruling ou the question abuvu staled |
During the argument uf tho qutis-
tiun and incidentally some interesting
statements wore made as to the courtly
method ol procedure in this country.
Many will recall tho caao of the late
Amor Dc Cosmos, ol Victoria, wbo
paid a large sum to have legislative
sanction for thu change of hia cognomen. It was ox plained that this
was to give tho necessary legal
individuality to lho name so that Mr.
Do Cusmos might be addressed iu a
business or social way by no uther.
It wuuld appear .Inducible thorofure
trum the abuvu that, withuut legal ur
parliamentary saiiotiun iu the case ul
a voluntary change ut name any man
may still bu addressed personally
iliruiigh the mails, in summons ni
cuurt or other legal documents, bank
drafts and the liko by his former designation.
As the changing ol unu's iigine is
nut a Oom mon practice, the ruliug uf
the Attorney General's ullice was
untight and in case this should gu
against Mr. Lung, there may still be
appeal to higher oourts.
Montreal   Contractor   Arrives
to Build for Molsons
Tho work of erecting the new building fur tho Molauus Rank in to he
begun at once hy Contractor Byers,
whu arrived hero Monday night Irum
Mie,Inal. The new building will
uocupy the samu lot as the present
premises, on tbo eurner ol McKensie
avenue anil Kirst street and the present structure will be removed to the
lot owned by A. Cowie, somewhat
farther east, on First street.
The plans lor the now building have
nul yet buon exhibited nnr lata the
OontrttOt price been locally announced,
bul particulars will be liiriiished in a
few days nn tho return ol Mr. Dyers
from Vernon, whero he haa a contract
lor another building,
In cuiiiiectiun witb the erection ol
the new bank here by outside parties
there is considerable fouling aiming
lucal contractors who claim thoy havo
a grievance ruapu ting the manner in
which their tenders were treated.
Their statement is that originally
plans lm a molt expensive and nuig-
ni.ieout building were sunt weat frum
Montreal tu obtain tenders un the
work ol construction. As tlieir plans
called for material not in common
use in British Columbia structures,
considerable expense had to be nogu-
tiated before tho cost nl such material
cuuld be learned and trips to Heattlo
and Calgary were necessitated. Their
rocilcl continues lhat when tho tenders   were sent tu  the head office at
Florence Kinrade Now Denys
Former Testimony Says
Stories of Concerts Untrue.
Little Progress Made.
Hamilton, Out., May 1 —Mrs. Kinrade was the lirst witness called laat
night alter the coroner bad refused the
request of the family's legal representative that lho remainder uf the evidence Le taken iu camera. Coroner
Anderson reminded Mra. Kiuradc that
bIio had disohoyod a furmor summons
tn attend, and that if she were a man
he wuuld have lined her. Mrs. Kinrade cuuld not remember what the
girls were talking abuut when she left
thu huuse, but they were bulb dressed
lur the street, wi'.h the exceptiun of
their furs.
Florence Kinrade was tben called.
After a few questions Mr. Hebaou objected tbat she was being held to repeat evidence sbe had already given,
in violation of the judgment of tbe
Mr. Blackstock agreed with this and
asked a series ol questions regarding a
bracelet. Florence said it hud been
presented to her by the Manchester
church choir. The tendency ol the
questions was that the bracelet had
never been presented, She was hazy
in her recollection of the event, She
cuuld not remember anyone whu was
proBeut, except that the presentation
had been made hy the leader of the
cbuir. She did not know the clergyman's name, how many Sundays she
sang iu the church, nor the house,
nor the name uf the street she lived
in, or whether it waa iu Manchester
or Richmond. She denied that when
she went to Virginia Beach Bbe was
in trouble ol any kind, but admitted
that she was very home sick.
At the evening session Mr. Black-
stock finally drew from the girl the
admission that the reports ot Bocials
and concerts she had attended in the
south and in Ontario were all false.
One relerred to a social given at Norway in her honor. The lady reported
as having given it repudiated il. Mr.
BlackBtock produced a letter written
by Florence from Norfolk, tu her
parents, iu which she spuke of the
reception about to take place. Other
letters written home relerred to the
church where she was singing in Manchester, its SLrpliced choir, etc., all of
which the girl admitted as false.
The ruports ol her concerta at Kincardine, Goderioh aud Stratford were
fiotitious, Miss Elliott, she said,
had brought ber to Hamilton. Thia
prompted Mr BlackBtock to remind
her lhat sbe had never belore mentioned Miss Elliott as haviug been
in Hamilton, and Florence explained
tbat she was there once her parents
were away. She could nut afford any
more   information     regarding    Miss

with a better understanding by the
people of each country of ihese oi
the othoi is the sure ( preventive
of catastrophe thai can he devised.
A striking evident e of thii awakening was given in Vancouver last
week hy Mr. A. .1. Dawson, editor
ul lhu "Standard of Empire," a
British newspaper founded to comprehensively deal with affairs of
empire. Mr. I la wson Btated lhat
''since its inception a year ago the
"Standard" has published over a
million words about Canada alone,
not one of which has been fruitless.
He mentioned alsu that two Scottish and two other English papers
had followed the path of the "Kui-
1 >ire" and are now its rivals in the
publication of Canadian news antl
the increase of circulation in Canada. Continuing, with the clear
visiun of lhe seer Mr. Dawson says:
•'1 ask you to consider just what
ihis means for Canada, and for
greater Britain generally; the widespread publicity that it means; the
widespread tendency to the establishment and extension of mutual
understanding; that mutual understanding which we are agreed is at
the Imsis ui nil enduring forms uf
unity, politically, commercially,
and in evi ry other wny. This is
what 1 call education by wholesale.1'
"Establishment and extension of
mutual understanding," nre the
hot words in Mr. Dawson's eloquent

the northwesl are similarly afllic- j
ted and British Columbia 1ms not
been without its share in suffering
from the bloody wurk. An element
of mystery overhangs nearly all oi
the tragedies and even when suspects or actually guilty parties are
apprehended the sufficient motive
f..r the taking of a human life—is
difficult if not impossible ot discov
ery. Epidemics ul such crimes are
uol rare. They pervade states,
communities and cities lifting a-
uddenly as thej strike, the puzzh
of all psychologists, Suggestion
one is imi a sufficient explanation,
and a modern Sherlock Homes to
leal wilh ih" psychological law
thai underlies these loctlized
pasms rn" human depravity is more
iue. .-Miry than one to unravel the
mysteries of an individual ease.
While in Canada justice is swifl
where iiiiii is proved and the
wholesome deterrence nf law must
be admitted the moral—or immoral
—lesson in be learned seems to lie
in a study of the Btrenuous efforts
that are made by counsel for the
defence to shield from justice those
concerning whose f_,uilt there can
be little tluubt from lhe the lirst.
Such tactics as keeping out of
court important witnesses who have
been served with coroner's warrants
by menu- of habeas corpus proceedings strike the layman as attempts
tu defeat the ends of justice. If
witnesses are in possession of evidence which would assist the crown
in arriving at the facts and the
jury ;it n verdict there would seem
—to the lay mind—no reason why
they should hesitate to tell all
they know. When they are restrained from doing so by the advice and assistance ut" counsel there
cannot hut grow up in the festering minds of perverts who contemplate crime a comfortable anticipation that clever counsel can
disguise and evade justice.
We ijn not believe as is uften
suggested, that money enn bribe
leading legal talent tu du this.
The explanation would seem to lie
in the sense of satisfaction that
arises from auccessa in attempting
something clever and especially
outwitting clever opposing counsel,
lu the end however, we believe the
effects of such clever work tu he
baneful ninl to sou), extent responsible for the spread of n morbid
desire lo kill.

Head Tax Criticized.
At the annual dinner ol the law
faculty ul McGill University in Montreal lust week, a unique feature was
that the chief speech was delivered by
Peter Huig, 'he Chinaman who beat
al! his riiuls at the examinations a
year ago, nnd may du s again this
year. The toast to "the best little
yellow devil that ever cume to tuwn"
was by far the most popular of the
eveuiug. Dealing with the awakening
oi China to the civilization ui the
West, and what Canada did to drive
the Chinese student to other countries
he said in part —
" China is awakening. She realizes
what a nation should possess in order
to be called a power iu the twentieth
century. She realizes the value ot
adopting a modern commercial policy,
the introduction ol better cummuui-
cution and transportation, the development of her industries, and the
establishing of a betier form of government aud judicial system, in urder
that she may he recognized to be a
member uf ihe international circle.
Tu bring abuut ihese changes, she
found that her old library system of
education wn. noi suitable, and by an
Imperial edict in  1901, the  old   edu-
prejutlice ie hardly nuticeuble among
the educated class, which reasons
according to sound principles. * * *

policy and is now trading with all the
nations of the world. Canada is

Sums to Be Spent by Construction Companies in Western j

Winnipeg, May 5.—Approximately
$85,000,000 will he spent by railroads
in actual construction in Western
Oanada during 1909, according to
statements made by head ollicials oil
the various companies. Thecunstruc-
tiun campaign laid uut by the Canadian I'acilic is the most costly and
calls for Lhe expenditure ol uver
$20,000,000. JaraesJ.Hill will spend
$15,000,000 uu the Great Northern
und subsidiary companies in Western
Oanada, together making a futirth
trunk system iteruss the prairies westward frum tllie city. The Canadian
Northern intends to spend some
$11,000,000, pari ul which will be for
the extension Of its main line towards
the i'acilic Coast. A like amount will
be spent by the Grand Trunk I'acilic
un its main line between Winnipeg
nnd the 1'ncilic Ocean, but the bulk of
the money used by this cumpany during lllOll will he un its brunch lines.

These three linee will bo the most
important ever built in Western Canada, as far as American farmers an

will give direct access to rich mineral

the uther northerly lino will give direct communication tu Hudson's Buy

There are uow thousands of students ment| happiness and prosperity ur a

leading colleges ol ihe United States 0f the people than Canada:
and many in Great Britain nnd the I have, of course, concerned myself

am sorry lu sny that there aie only Lj tbe industrial classes. As compar-
two Chinese university students in Lj witb the countries of the Orient,
Canada. 1 hope that belore long our i the jitVertnce iu the standards of liv-
institutiuns of learning, which are  by  jng uf   (jaLindiaii workerB,  both  rural
uu means inferior tu thuee uf imy
other country, will be better kuuwn to
the Oninese,
These young Chinese abroad,whether
Guvernnieiit ur private students, will
return tu China, alter the completion
ol their .studies. They will be influential leaders of the country, and no
doubt these Western graduates will he
deeply interested iu the future international relations between China and
other cuuntries ol the wurld.
Nuw, let ue set what encouragement
the Canadian Government gives to the
Chinese Btudents. I refer you to Lhe
Chinese Immigration Act. Prior to
1904 a Chinese student could come to
Oanada without mucb difficulty, In
that year the bend tax upon Chinese
was raised frum $100 In $600 Under
thai act a student upon Ins entry into
Canada lm<l todeposit $600 and after
having attended certain schuulo a year
is entitled tu a refund of lhe $600,
The Canadian Partisan nt bus pKSBed
many wise acts as the Lemieux Act,
and the act to prohibit importation
iiianu'acture anil Bale ol upiiini, but in
adopting such rigorous measures
against the Chinese students it is not
very complimentary,
Idmi'tsay that the action ul the
Government is wlmlly unjustified, but
I du sny that it is a wiser pulicy to
enonurtiKe the students to cume tu
Canada instead ol discouraging them.
Suppose ii Chinese student desires
to euiiie to McGill ur any oi uur sister
universities.    1   don't   think   that   he
would subject himself to tbe indignity
ol depositing $600 and then ask fnr a
refund later.      He   wuuld rather gu In
the States or tu Great Britain where
he is admitted Ire ly. * * * *

So tar as the Dominion is immediately concerned, the question of immigration is perhaps thu most important, Tu preserve the standards
which our industrial classes have
reached, restriction of immigration
from the Orient is an absolute necessity. This, happily, is reoognised by
the authorities uf the great countries
acruss the i'aciiit: hardly lesa than by
ourselves, and su lung us we are prepared tu act Willi the furbearauco and
moderation which should be dictated
by a consideration uf the difficulties
Eastern statesmen have to luce iu the
government ol multitudes, and by a
realization of our own positiun as a
part uf the British Empire and a
young nation asking to develop its
resources and expand   its commerce
and relations with other and older
countries, we need have nothing to
fear frum Oriental immigration, nut at
least fur lniiny years to come."
