Alfonso Hissed and Hooted by
Angry Crowds at Madrid-
Government is in Desperate
Situation
Madiuii, July 28—Early to-day a
mob was formed and ni»rched to the
palace where a mighty Bhoutol "Down
with the King" struck terror to tbe
heart of the young monarch. Believing that his appearance would appease the wrath ol the people,
Alfonso appeared on the balcony and
attempted to addreSB tbem. He was
greeted with hisses, boots and jeers
and finally driven back into tbe
palace.
Tbe Spanish government is in a
desperate situation. While the rioting
waa confined to the province of Catalonia, there was hope tbat it might be
put down before it attained revolutionary proportions. With its spread
to-day to Madrid, the danger of a civil
war seems imminent.
Reports from Barcelona to-day indicate that the situation there is worBe
than desperate and drastic action on
the part of the government is anticipated.
Many companies ol troops at Barcelona aud other cities in Catalonia
have deserted the Hag and joined tbe
rioting strikers in tbe destruction of
property and shedding of blood Scores
were killed to-day when the rioting
was renewed and tbe few remaining
loyal troopB are powerless to cope with
the situation. They have taken refuge
iu tlieir barracks aud are being besieged hy the rioters. Reinlorcements
bave been ordered to the scene.
OVERWHELMINGLY' DEFEATED
GlBBALTAit, July 29.—Official advices Irom Melilla to-day Bhow that
the Spanish troops were overwhelmingly defeated by the Moors in battle
and bave been forced to abandon all
of their outposts.
After hours of fighting the Spaniards
were compelled to retreat to the forts
under the guns of the Spanish warship- in the harbor and the Moors
took possession of the posts previously
occupied hy tbe army of defence.
A Spanish gunboat today captured
a blockade runner containing 130
Kohyle tribesmen.
Confirmation of the Spaniards heavy
hisses iii the engagement with the
Moors at Melilla was contained iu a
despatch sent here today hy General
Mariana, commanding the troops in
Morrooo.   The despatch reads:
" On July 27 the Moora destroyed
our communication with tlie outpost*.
We shelled the Moors with batteries
but had to abandon our advanced
posts."
" In Tuesday's engagement we lost
General Mintoa, one colonel, live
captains, two lieutenants, many petty
officers and 1.000 enlisted men. Tbe
wounded number at leaBt 2500, including many officers, among them
two generals who cannot live. The
hippodrome is filled with wounded."
Ignorance of Moorish methods of
warfare caused tbe heavy losses, the
general's despatch explained. He
said that he believed the Moors lost
fully 5,000 men.
BEINFQROEMENTS roll llARL'ELONA
Mahrid, via Frontier, July 29 —
Indications that the government believes the danger ol a civil war in tbe
province ol Catalonia is more grave
tbau slaughter of Spanish troops at
Melilla were given today when strong
forces of troops aud a number of warships were ordered lo proceed at once
to Barcelona.
Tbe third and fourth army corps,
two brigsdeB ol cavalry, two cruisers
and three torpedo destroyers were
dispatched to the sceue of internal
strife.

A SUSPICIOUS DEATH
Brakeman Ardell May Have Been Murdered
-May Have Met With Foul Play
North Bay, July HO.—The finding
of C. A. Ardell, a C. P. K. brakeman
near Markatay, on July 1, and the
circumstances sun outidiug the tragedy
occasioned considerable suspicion at
tbe lime that bis death was not the
result of an accident. An inquest waB
held, and the body buried without
examination.
Ardell's train was held up hy a
wreck ahead, and he took advantage
ol the wait to visit a farmhouse about
a mile away, where a dance was in
progress, but the inmates deny that
he ever reached there. Hia body was
found next morning near the railway
tracks iu a mangled condition. In
Markstay, the impression is general
tbat Ardell met witb loul play, and
was layed upou the railroad tracks.

poor Dooley was nowhere to be seen.

Beyond this huge district we
have in liritish Columbia its glorious valleys and its sea-girt islands,
another West, the occupants of
which will gather in tbe riches of
the soil and live in comfort, if not
in opulence. The striking point
about Canada is the marvelous
manner in which new and splendid
fields for enterprise and industry
open up as v,e journey on. Seventy
years have given us an Empire. A
few more years and we shall have
the development of this magnificent
area well under way.
HOW WE HAVE GROWN
That the growth and prospects
of Western Canada are everywhere
recognized, is shown in a recent
article in the Mail and Empire,
under the above heading the
Toronto paper says:
''Seventy years ugn Western
Canada wns that portion of the
present province of Ontario lying
beyond Hamilton and lhe east of
Luke Huron. Here the Canada
Company was settling its lands.
To this Kl Dorado the colonists
were moving ilong muddy roads,
and amitlst great difficulties. Alter
weeks of travel the pioneer reached
his allotment in tbe forest primeval
and proceeded to carve out a home.
Faith,   enterprise    and    industry
must have been lhe qualities which
(sustained the fathers of Canada in
these early days,
Forty year- ago Western Canada
was that portion of   the  Dominion
of which Kurt Garry,   now   Wintii-
pi'Lr, was the centre    Some    tiiant
souls   bail   already   reached   this
promised land,     Certain  of them
had arrived by way of the Hudson

THE WHISKEY AND THE
INDIAN
The death at Shuswap of an
Indian from injuries received during a drunken spree once more
draws attention to the facility with
which Indians are able to procure
all the liquor they wish. Where
do tbey get it from?
It is a manifest duty of the
authorities to find out and when
they obtain lhat information to
punish the offenders with utmost
rigor. 11 is true that the law is
faulty in that it does not lay down
adequate punishment for this kind
of offender; but the law can be
amended. To secure the much
needed amendment to this legislation there must be brought to bear
the pressure of public opinion.
There has been much said nnd
done respecting local option, prohibition and other movements in
the cause of temperance, but there
tines not appear to have been any
thought worthy the name given to
the securing of legislation providing for the severe punishment of
those miserable beings who trade
upon the weakness of ihe Indian.
The native is not like the white
man in many respects ami the
drinking of whisky or other intoxicant effects him more strongly.
While umler its inlluence he lo.-es
all self control   and   what  he will
then do has heen demonstrated
over anil over again in this llislrict
uml elsewhere. It is only n Bhort
time since n tragedy was enaoted

Shuswap nre four within the current year uf violent deaths locally
resulting from drink. Hail then-
been adequate safeguards to discourage the illicit trnllic in liquor
among Indians those four deaths
niigbl have been prevented. But
we must ileal with conditions as
tbey are. The law is insufficient
and it is the duty of the people ns
well ns the law makers to see thnt
prompt measures nre taken to till
the need.— Kamloops Sentinel.
SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION
Rev. A. O. MoRae, Principal of
the Western Canada College, Calgary, while in Nelson the other
day, gave the Nelson News his
opinion on the administration of
tlie public schools in Canada. He
said:
"That is the greatest weakness
in tbo public BchoolB of Canada
today—the preponderance of lady
teachers. I do not, of course, mean
that they are less ellicient than
men but it seems to me one of the
most important principles of education for boys that they should
be taught by men directly they
have reached the age of 13. I consider that some effort should be
made to build up a profession of
male teachers, instead of letting
the work, as it is at present, be
merely a stepping stone to other
employments. In Germany, for
instance, the aristocracy of intellect is to be found among the
school teachers, und thia is due to
tlie fact that the teachers in that
country are comparatively well
paid, after they have proved
themselves tu lie suited
work, become eligible for a
frum the government."

JEFFRIES POSTS $5,000 FORFEIT
At New York to Bind Match with Johnson—
Latter Keen to Cover It
New York, July 28,—Actual steps
looking to a ligbt lietween .lames J
Jetl'ries ond Jack Johnson, for the
heavyweight championship nf the world
were taken today, when Jellries, on
his arrival (rom the WeBt, posted
$5,000 as a forfeit to bind a match
with the negro pugilist, for a tight ol
anywhere Irom 20 to 100 rounds. The
one-time boilermaker insists tbat tbe
fight shall be held belore the club
ottering the largest purse, and tbat
when articles are signed, an additional forfeit of $5,000shall lie poBted. The
whole sum ol $20,000 is to go to the
winner.
Jetl'ries will leave for a short trip in
a few days. He will visit tbe Springs
at Carlsbad, in Bohemia, and will do a
little preliminary training tbere. He
plans tu be ready to tight within live
months.
"Tbere is absolutely nothing tbe
matter with me in any way," Baid
Jeffries, alter posting the lorleit, and
added tbat he hoped the light wuuld
be in America. On posting his forfeit, Jeffries issued tbe lollowing statement:
"After decisively convincing myself
tbat it is easily possible for me to
defend my title aB Champion of tbe
World, aB I am in as good condition
as ever before in my life, I am today
posting my forfeit to meet the claimant of the title, Jack Johnson. In
reference to those wbo bave been sceptical about my intention of meeting
Johnson, 1 wish to say that when lirst
called from retirement, 1 said 1 would
never oppose anyone in the prize ring,
until I was certain 1 could attain my
former physical condition. After being
absolutely satisfied as to tbe same, I
s.ated that I would post my forfeit at
the expiration of my theatrical contract. My theatrical contract having
expired, I am posting my money, sincerely hoping that Johnson is as
anxious lor tbe match as he has made
it appear, and that be will be as ready
to live up to his public statements as
1 am."
Jackson, Mich., July 28.—"I'll leave
Chhagu on Monday nigbt Ior New
York, and cover that forfeit," said
Jack Johnson, the colored champion
pugilist of the world thiB evening,
when shown a despatch to tbe effect
that Jeffries bad posted a forfeit at
New York of $5 000, to tight Johnson,
and again place the honor of championship among the white race.
Johnson said he was not surprised
to hear that Jeffries bad posted tbe
forfeit.
"I will be ready to light almost any
time. I think I am in condition now
to clean Jeffries out within 15 rounds."
Johnson said be preferred to meet
Jeffries at San Francisco.
"That is the best place in the coun
try," be eaid.
Johnson reached this city by automobile late this afternoon.

MICHEL HUNTING FOR BLACK HAND DIAMONDS HIDDEN IN BEDROOM
five Prominent Members of the Italian Society Receive Demands for $200
MlOHEL, B. C, July 28—Great
excitement prevailed here Wednesday
upon the din-Insures tbat live prominent members of the local Italian
society have been threatened witb
instant death by the black hand unless
they pay $200 to be placed at various
places designated by tbem, one ol
which was a largo rock at the rear of
tbe Catholic churcl.
Four of the letters wore reooived
Sunday, and wero turned over to tbe
provincial constables, Stephenson and
Mulger, who at once took charge of
the case. The timo set lor the deposit
of the money was between 10 p.m. and
2 a.m.
Under orders from tho police, several men were posted at each designated place, and lake parcels placed
in the hiding places by the recipients
of the letters, but no attempt was
made by the black hand gang to claim
the booty. Not a member of tlio Italian socioty is working to-day. Everyone is armed, and a determined effort
is being made in assisting the police
in protecting the lives of their leaders.
A meeting was held Wednesday
afternoon by tbo Italian society with
about 350 members present. The
local force of provincial police will be
doubled. Reinforcements are to arrive
bere. Several Italians are under suspicions, but though secret efforts have
been made, tbere is not the slightest
proof against them, but they are being
closely watched, and any attempt to
leave camp will result in tbeir immediate arrest.
$10,000,00010 CHARITY
Large Amount Thrown to Beggars During
funeral In Bombay
Bomiiay. July 29.—One hundred
thousand dollars were distributed to
the beggars uf this city during the
funeral today ol Naoroji Wadai, the
last ol the old Indiau navy ship
builders.
Wadai was very wealthy, and left
nearly $10,000,000 to charity, including a large fund to aBBist poor girls to
marry.
Honest Officials
In these days ol graft, boodle and
rake-offs, it is pleasant tu realize tbat
tbere are some honest men lelt in the
laud wbo can spurn the temptations
set before tbem, says tbe Prince Rupert Empire: A case in point, and
one which should not be allowed to
pass unnoticed, was that which
cropped up in Prince Rupert's police
court last week, wbere it was shown
an attempt bad been made to silence
Chief Constable Vickers in the proper
discbarge of his duties by offering bim
a bait of fifty dollars. Had our chief
been ol tbe calibre of the ex-chief of
Simcoe, Ont., who iB now in the penitentiary, he would have fallen, and
the wheels ol justice would bave been
thwarted. With so many law-breakers
holding out the olive branch to our
officials, is there any wonder bo many
fall ? It is indeed pleasant to think
that Prinoe Rupert bas a chief which
cannot be tampered witb, and we only
hope he will always maintain that
integrity In the meantime, all bonor
to him, and the same may be said of
Magistrate Williams in bis condemning tbe attempt to bribe. Billy
Vickers is well known here hy the old
timers, he having been provincial con
stable ol this district in the early
days.
In the last twenty years Germany
has spent $150,000,000 on her waterways and now has 827S miles of

The Value of Irrigation
When tlie world waayo mg, says the
Winnipeg Telegram, the value ul
irrigation us uu adjunct to agriculture
was widely recognized. Kvery reli- ol
lust civilizations discovered to-day
reveal evidences of this fact. The first
extensive plan of this character
recorded iu ihe west was Unit adopted
by Brighiim .Tilling when he led the
Mormons into I lull and  undertook lo
utilize the valley ol the Great Salt
Lake. There was grumbling among
the sturdy characters In bis party
because their leader rejected the rich
bottom lands surrounded by heavy
fore-its and insisted on cultivating a
plain baked hard as a bone by ages of
torrid, dry weather. Then it was that
the genius astonished his people liy
turning the mountain st renin, which
he named ihe Jordan, onto tlie plain.
The irrigation methods were crude,
but tbe basin ol ibe Great Sail  Lake
he.'nine famiius throughout the world
ill a lew years lor the quantity and
excellence of ils fruit and delicate
vegetables.
Today irrigation has reached a
magnitude in Western Canada and
tbe States that suggests a revolution
in agricultural methods, Fur instance,
Arthur Hooker, secretary ol the hoard
ol control of the National Irrigat'on
Congress, will present a resolution for
approval by that organization at its
seventeenth Bessinn in Spokane, Aug.
'.I to 14, memorializing congress to
issue 3 per ceut. gold bonds, running
100 years, to the amount of $5,000,000,-
000, nr as much thereof aB may bo
necessary for the followiug specific
purposes :
One billion dollars for drainnge of
overflowed and swamp lands, thus
reclaiming bii area equal to 100,000
square miles.
One billion dollars for the reclamation by irrigation ol 40,000,000 acrt'B
of arid and semi-arid lands, now
partly or wholly waste.
One billion dollars to construct and
improve deep waterways, to develop
tlinii-ands of miles of territory now
without adequate triinspintation facilities.
iiue billion dollars fur g mil roads
ami national highways, fur the lack nf
which the luss tu tbe farm area of the
i nited States is approximately |600,-
000,000 annually,
One billion dollars for forest protection, reforestation and conservation
nl the forest resources, Hum insuring
limber and lumber supplies lur centuries tu onme.
Five billion dollars is all enorinous
sum and yet it is lii-ignilicant. in
ciiinparisun wi|h the amount ol virgin
suil in he hruiight   under  cultivation.
