lierlin, Oct. 22.��� Tho Band der
JnJiistriclleii held a general meeting
here today at which was -Jiscussed the
"American danger" and the "new
German tariff." The general secretary o( the Bund, Dr. Wendlandt,
ilewribcd tim Amciicnn danger as extremely grave end said that the Ger-
inniifl were, fully conscious of this
ilmif-er. He quoted figures Bhowiug
Hie extraordinary growth of exports
from the United Stntcs to (lormuny
anil tlio decline in the movement of
(roods in the opposite direction, and
complained that the aveinge of duties
imposed by the United States is 50
por cent, while that of Germany is
only Hi por cent. A further hardship,
lie added, li the inquiring of a declaration nf invoices before a consul, thus
giving Americans possession of the
liu.siimi'RS interests of the Herman
market, He asserts that the United
States government maintained detectives in Uurmaii.v for the purpose of
discovering trade secrets and undervaluations ami cited the case of a fao-
tory in .Saxony whicli had been tuiued
Rcforring to President Itoosovelt'a
reported wish to come to terms with
Germany, the speaker said: Ger-..
ninny's best policy will he to wait for
tlio Americans to come to us and tben
to letorniinc tile removal of the worst
Injustices anil annoyances before we
begin a lixed treaty. Germany should
icfnse to act until the United States
reduces the duties below 20 per   cent.
Discussing the remedies at Germany's disposal, Dr. Wendlandt said
tlio chief one was the tariff, an io-
craiFe of which absolutely roust be
applied. This, ho declared, would
bring America to her senses and count-
erftot tbe boundless despotism of
tinsts. He recommended the forma
tion of a central European customs
union against the United States and,
admitting the great difficulties io tbe
way of this, declared that if it should
inovo impossible, then a committee
slinnld he made to treat American
goods differently from those of other
countries. Other speakers warned
hearers   against   a   tariff   war
London, Oct. 22.���A summary of
the Manchurlan convention which Li

Montreal, Oct. 21.���Mr. lloniassa,
M. P., for Labelle, whose r.ttitnde on
the South African contingents gained
him much not.'iiety. was tho princi:
pal speaker at a meeting tonight,
held to celebrate the anniversary of
the pioneer newspaper There was a
large attendance. J. A. Chicoyne, M.
L. A., for Wolfe, presided. Bonr-
assa's subject was Great llritain and
(���lunula. He took occasion to make
a violent a luck on Great Britain for
her action in South Africa He said
it was unjustifiable and due to Chamberlain und a few others. He ridiculed Chainbetlain and the Royal
family, and said tbo war had shown
now weak Great Britain really was,
England's anny was worthless and it
was not known what the navy was
worth as it bad not been tried. No
nation was now afraid of Great
Britain. He denounced tho acceptance of titles by Canadians and said
the constitution should he so amended
as to prevent Canadians from accepting Imperial honors. Ue believed tha
connection should be maintained
between Canada and Great Britain
but did not believe in independence or
annexation as the latter would be
death   to the French nioi*.
Turkey   Must   Respect
Treaties and  Obligations.
Other Nations   Will   Bring
Order Out of Chaos
Paris, Oct. 12--The fact that France
has not yet employed coercive measures to enforce a settlement of the
Lorando claim hy Turkey is due to
the unsettled condition of the interior
of that conntry. It is feared that suoh
action might bring about the disruption of Turkey. The miRgoverninent
of Macedonia, tho excesses committed
in Armenia and the dissatisfaction in
tbe island of Crete, have reached such
a point as to constitute a menace of
pence. The powers acting on the
initiative of Russia and France are
now discussing the basis of an understanding for joint representations to
thi porte, and for eventually obliging
the Sultan not only to carry out the
clauses of the tionty of Berlin rotating
to Macedonia and Armenia, but to
give guaiantees for fuither reforms
and tbe settlement of numerous pending Questions. The opportunity will
he taken to seek a fresh solution of
the Cretan question. Russia appears
tq have sounded Germany on the subject and the adhesion of Austria and
Italy is considered certain. It is be
lieved that Lord Salisbury, who proposed the Armenian reforms of 1894,
will suppoit the projected action.
France iu tlie meanwhile does not
intend to waive ner rights of forcing
her present clniins.

Chicago, Oct. 21.���Burglars last
nigbt stole ,?G,litis wortli of stamps
from the Cnicago postotlice and escaped without leaving the slightest trace
or clue. A tunnel, which had taken
more than a week to complete, wus
run from the rear of the building and
a hole was then drilled through the
bottom of the wholesalo stamp vault.
There were ninety-seven Pinall holes
arouud the square plate cut out, and
some of the drilling looked several
days old. The stamp vault was only
six feet way from tho cashier's vault,
which contained over 83(10,000 in cash.
The latter had evidently been the
objective point.

There is a growing disposition on
the part of the judiciary to discredit
the tstimony of experts in civil and
criminal oaees, as it is considered
that scientific men, like the rest of
mankind, nre prone to take sides in
any cause that, may come up. As s
result of his tbey oppose each other in
the witness box, nccorriing to which
side they nre retained, and swear
diametrically against each other.
This has been so much the cane that
they arc looked upon in many Instances, with considerable distrust,
being retained in cases the same
as the attorneys ��ro and seem to
tuke just as much interest in aiding
the side whioh they represent as
Iho regulnrly paid attorney. Courts
have denounced them time and again,
but Judge McMabon a short time
since did it most forcibly, when he
told tho Jury, after they had listened
to opinions of nearly forty experts at
the trial of Gerald Sifton fot the
murder of his father that their evidence was of "no oonseqnence, " and
inut they might eliminate it entirely
from the esse. The qnestiun was as
to whether the deceased came to his
death from wounds inflated on the
head witb an axe ot by a fall from
the loft   of a barn.
The New York Supreme oourt hail
just granted a new trial to Roland
II. Molincux, under sentence of death
for the alleged poisoning of Mrs.
Katciinc J. Adams, principally because the testimony of experts In
handwiriting in the oase was illegal.
The pacakge which contained tho
poison was addressed in band writing
which a cloud of experts declared to
be that of Molineux. Testimony of
other experts was used in rebuttal
but the conviction of Molincux was
secured cn thc general resemblance of
the handwirting on the package to
thnt of the the accused, whioh seems
to be small ground on whioh to
declare a man guilty of murder in the
first degree.
These two caseB serve to show the
ineffectiveness of expert testimony.
If testimony in this line whicb is
not biased could be aeoored it would
serve tbe ends of justice, but the
difficulty is that the experts become
parts nnd parcels of both the prosecution snd the defense and this de*
stroys the value of their testimony.
It, therefore, mme often defeats than
aids the ends of justice, as adroit
attorneys make some trilling
point apparently the main Issue and
so befog the minds of the juiymen
Hint they lose sight of that portion of
thc evidence thut Is really paramount,
and thc icsult is often a disagreement
like thnt whioh resulted In tbe Sifton
case. In thc Molineaux case Irregularities were allowed to creep In
while taking the expert testimony
which compelled the Supreme couit to
declare that it was Illegal. In thc two
cases it is very probable tbat tne
accused will finally secure acquittals,
or he tried on lesser oharge than
murdct in the lirst degree, as
already such an outcome is spoken of
in tbo Molinoux oase. The remedy
would be perhaps to pass a law prohibiting thc introduction of expert
testimony In criminal cases, except
that which is necestary. These **10uld

brilliant articles from his pen appeared in that publication. He had literary ability of a brilliant order and
his articles abounded In apt similes
aud he oould be humorous or satirical
aa the spirit moved him.
lie was first relumed fur Commons
for West Assiniboia constituency at
tho general election of 1891 and also
at the general oleotions, 1896. He
was defeated by Mr. Scott in 1900. In
polities he was a Conservative, waB a
strong believer in the future of the
west and favored a liber tl policy fot
its development. He visited this section In l'.K)(i and spoke is several of
thc larger towns.
Mr. Davin was an eloquent orator
and shone not only on the publio
plntform but in the House of Commons. Ho combined unusual literary
ability with an aptitude for business
and material affairs, making a combination which ib not often found in
one individual. Like many another
brilliant and capable man he lacked
oiily a little of being great. ilis
social and convivial habits were probably tho main reason why he did not
reach the higher goals which he evidently started for at the commencement of his career, and these foibles
earned to excess doubtless led, during
temporary mental depression, to self
slaughter, and thus a career which
might have been muoh more useful
than it was came to a mournfui
able to bring about a reversal of this
condition of nflalre. lt is only by
doing as tlie oolliers of East Kootenay
are doing that the balance of trade
can be turned in the right direction
in favor of Canada. Canada must sell
all she can of her raw and manufaot
ured products to the Americans aod it
is a mere matter of lime when they
will be purchasing moro from ub than
we are from them.
Coal from the deposits of East Kootenay Is boing exported to Spokane
whcio it comes into competition witb
the domestic product from ltoslyn and
othei collieries. The ooal is shipped
from tho collieries of East Kootenay
via the llonner's Perry route and hS6
to traverse a considerable portion of
the way over the tracks of the Canadian Pacifio railway. The Great
No-'thern ,is building a branch from
its main.line from JunningB, Mont.,
into the, EaBt Kootonay coal fields
which will be finished 'in abont six
months. As the coal sent to Spokune
can be handled ni,caper when this
tiraiieh road is finished it iu certain
tbat much more of it will be marketed in Spokane and adjoining places
than at present. It is a much bettor
article than the latter ooal and
will, in time, therefore, to a large
extent, drive the Washington product
almost entirely out of.the field so fur
us tbe ensturu portion of toe state is
concerned. It will be dilllcult for it
to get Into the-western part of Washington owing to the expensive haul
over the mountains and the plentiful
supply of coal of n fairly good quality
coining from collieries ou the wost
slope of the cascade mountains.
The balance of Canada'B trade with
the United States Is in favor of the
latter country but the enterprising
people of tbis country   should soon be
A ruling by thc Minister of the
Interior in relation to the water
power of the Winnipeg river should
be of considerable interest and importance in liritisli Columbia which
has a wealth of energy of this kind
waiting to be developed. Tbe ruling
is equitable as it is opposed to the
holding of power by speculators when
not utilized. The matter at issue, tho
water powers on tbe Winnipeg river,
was so important (hat it was accorded
close consideration. Officials of the
department had reported ou all the
details to the minister and he bas put
the stamp of his appioval to the
report. Iu effect the report is that
the lands, whleh are still ln the
hands of the department, will be
grouped In snch a way that tbe pur
chasers of the last group shall bave
one water power, and aa far as possi
ble no more than one shall go to a
single company. Tbe lands necessary
for eaoh water power shall be leased
upon condition that within a certain
period, to be fixed, the water shall
be substantially developed, after
which the applicant may acquire the
title. If the water power is not developed within thc stipulated period
the land is to revert back to the
crown. The idea is tu prevent use of
tbe water power for specnlative
purposes on thc part of water
powor mongers. It Ib to the in-
teiest of the commonwealth to have
tbe power developed am' the intention is to keep them from tho possession of thowi -who might hinder such
development. The aetion of the Minister of tho Interior is worthy of commendation.
Mr. A. W. Smith, M. L, A., is apparently becoming weak in the knees,
saya the Vanocuver World. His condemnation of the Dunsmuir-Martiu-
Brown unholy compact was strong
enough only a short time ago, but now
it la given to the Lillooet Prospector
to say: " We have authority from
Mr. Smith to state that so long as the
Dunsmuir Government woiks, as it
has in the past, for the good of the
province in general, and for tha welfare of West Lillooet, ho will remain
a faithful supporter of he same,"
With Mr. Smith it Is apparently not a
quostion of principle at all, but wbat

A Drawing Farce Comedy���II vVill Ilo
Again Produced Tonigiit.
Wilfrid Clark's farce conedy, "A
Wine Woman," was presented at tho
Nelson Opera House Inst evening by
the Leslie Davis oompany, The playwright who wrote this comedy evidently lind hut one object in view���to
made those who witnessed it laugh nt
tho humor, eoirical si hint ions and
funny climaxes which filled It like
raisins in a Christmas padding. The
members of the company producing
tho play are suited to it anil the fun
from tlist'to last was fast nnd furious
and there was scarcely a moment but
what the. audience was tittering or
loudly laughing at the efforts of the
players. "A Wise Woman*' certainly
mado a hit.
Frederick Murphy, as Paul Itoaeli,
an artist, had n comedy part which
suited liim admirably and he gave a
flno piece of chnractor acting, dale
Nallcrlee wns mildly humoio'is as
Peter Clincher and showed Hint he is
a comedian of merit. John Ferguson,
wbo enacted tbe port 0< Oliver Gold-
coyuc, an eccentric capitalist, won
tlie favor of the audience by his
whimsical portrayal of a fussy,
cholerio old man. Alice Ueer, as
Solena Roalch, was pleasing nnd her
coon songs lu ought down the house.
Ethel Illanclie, who played the sou-
biette role of Honor Rachel, was most
appropriately cast and wus certainly
fully imbued with the spirit of not
only the charncter sho represented but
also with the spirt of the play. Her
soprano solos were so pleasing that
she reoelvod oncores. Marie Laraour
was fairly good as Maud E/eltry.
Every seat in the honso was filled
and many stood up. The audience
was pleased with both the play and
the players, which wus   evidenced   by
the laughter and frequent bursts of

Special Features of the
Florence   Hot   Blast
Our New Idea Deflector Fire Pot greatly increases tke heating capacity of the stove, and in connection with the deflector ring forces the
heat to the floor. The base is hot, the floor being warmer than wuli a
base burner.
The Hot Blast Attachment takes in the cold air through a duct at the
rear of the fire pot, the heated air being discharged in a urcle at the top
of Are pot, over fire, thus consuming all the gases and products of combustion, lt can be operated in connection with the front draft door, or
independently, by a screw register in the rear of base, insuring complete
control of tbe stcve with nearly perfect combustion.
The large Hot Air Circulating Flue on the back takes the cold air from
the floor and ejects it .ntensely heated, through the top *,ad(,ing greatly
to the heating capacity.
Where the stove is operated according to directions'we guarantee it to
consume all the gas contained in soft coal, thus deriving the benefit of
all the heat in the fuel consumed, causing a truly remarkable saving of
fuel over any other stove on the market, The stovs will hold fire from
24 to 48 hours without attention.
