Ottawa. Aptll 28.���-Recent 'developments in .Now Brutuv/icJc in connection with the construction of the St.
John Valley railway were the subject
of a debate In the commons this afternoon and evening, which was confined exclusively to members from
New Brunswick. F. B. Carvell made
a charge of scandal but not against
the federal government, which has
given the road a subsidy of J6400 per
mile. He said that there had been
boodling in connection with the building of this line and said that his object in bringug the matter up was to
warn the minister of railways and to
ask him to take out the construction
of the road. The substance of Mr.
Carvell's charge was that the road
was badly constructed, that it had not
cost as much as claimed, and that the
rest of the money should be accounted
for. He made reference to the connection of Mr. Flamming of New
Brunswick and Hon. H. P. McLeod.
federal member for York with the
Prtmier   Flemming   Mentioned.
For the first time since the strike
troubles on Vancouver Island among
the coal miners broke out, New Westminster Iiub been ordered to supply
a portiep of the military forces stationed at Nanaimo. Official notice
was received yesterday by Major C.
El. Doherty, officer commanding the
104th regiment In the absence of
Lieut-Co). J. D. Taylor, from Col, Roy
at Victoria, notifying him to prepare
two companies of 80 men each for
duty at Nanaimo.
One company will be sent from
New Westminster and the other recruited from the three companies
stationed at Chilliwack and Clover-
dale. Major Doherty is In Victoria
but will return to this city today.
It is not believed that the visit of
Ihe New Westminster and district
troops will be of long duration, the
civic and municipal authorities in
and around Nanaimo requesting that
additional aid be granted over May
1, when demonstrations may tako
The Nanaimo and Ladysmith city
councils refused to grant permission
to the union men to hold a parade-
through the streets on May Day. and
while this order might be observed,
the authorities thought the situation
warranted a request to the government for additional forces to the
number of 500.

President  Will   Make  no Attempt at

lion. j. D. Hazen, minister of ma
rine,  in   the  course  of  a  speech  ex
pressed  t'.ie conviction  that the com
mission  which  is to be named to in-1
iiulre into the charges will find  that I
they are without foundation.    He said
Premier Flemming is a sick man and
that it was inconsiderate of Mr. Car-
veil to bring the matter up in the federal house at the presemt time.    Mr.
Mcl.eod   accused   Mr.   Carvell   of   en-
deavortn     to  block   the   construction
of the  road,  while  Hon.  Mr.  Emmer
son declared that in view of the fact
that  Mr.  McDeod    was mentioned in
��� the charges, he should not have said
j anything.
I Hon. J. D. Reid expressed the view I
that things were not as painted by
Mr. Carvell and promised that the!
federal government would take steps
to protect the interest of the public.
The house then went into committee on the tariff resolutions, the first
taken up be.ing that to change the
surtax. Lnder the old law the surtax
was one third of the duty. The present law is that it may be anything up
to 2ii per cent of the value of the
New Surtax Law.
Hon. Frank Oliver pointed out that
the new law would permit of a higher
surtax than the old. Moreover, under
the- new law a surtax of 20 per cent
ad valorem might be imposed on free
goods, while none could be imposed
on free goods under the old law. In
this way the surtax might be made
the means of increasing the taxes ou
ihe  consumer.
W. S. ixjggle, Northumberland, moved for ta> abolition of the duty on
potatoes and the matter was under
discussion when the house rose at
12:30 a.m.

Ai rangements have been completed
for taking moving    pictures    of    the
May Day exercises to be held in this
city on Friday of this  week.    At the
meeting  Tuesday   evening   the    committee  having  the   matter   in  charge
reported that all details had been arranged and that it was expected that
some particularly interesting pictures
would  be taken.    The  views will not
only  depict scenes and  incidents relative to the May  Day exercises, but
will  also include a number of views
cf tlie city.
The pictures, as soon as completed,
will  be shown in this city, and later
through  the province.    In due course
of time    they    will    also be    shown
throughout the Dominion, the United

All Arrangements Made,
The' arrangements for taking the
pictures have been completed to the
smallest detail. The first picture will
be taken at H o'clock prompt, at the
market, and will show the crowds attending the market, the unloading of
the Chilliwack train and other interesting views in this connection.
Immediately following a number of
views will be shown of the harboi

Wilson extended today the protection

ordered three troops of cavalry from

Will Prevent Rioting.
Colorado members of congress say
the mere presence of federal troops
will restore conditions and prevent
rioting. Efforts of the federal government thus far to settle the strike have
failed. On this point, the president
made it clear that federal troops were
being sent merely to preserve order
and not to interfere in the strike controversy itself.
"I shall not. by the use of the troops
or   by   any   attempt   at   Jurisdiction,"
wired the president to Governor Am
mens,  "inject  the  power  of  the  federal government into the controversy
which has produced the present situ
ation.   The settlement of that contr >-
versy falls strictly within the field of
state power."
Militia to Withdraw.
The president asked that the militia
be temporarily withdrawn until the
state legislature, which is to meet
next Monday, considers the situation
and arranges for it to resume its police duties in the state.
The Colorado situation was brought
to the attention of congress by Representative  Bryan  of  Washington  introducing a bill declaring that a state

Kdltor The News:
Sir,���Would you please alow me a
little space for a letter on "Uogoiiie-
try." It is nice to bars one, or say
two, nice setter dogs for pots or in
conjunction with a household. Rut
when a man raises two or more of
the said dogs to an age of one or two
years and have one die by poisoning
it is no joke. The peculiar case in
instance is the dog which waa poison
ed 011 Albertu street, Sapperton today. The poor dog got the dose and
got within the front of his home before be cashed in his checks. Now,
if anybody has anything against anybody it is not right to get vengeance
on a dumb brute and if the animal
was doing harm to property it in
justice to the owner to notify him
before laying poison for the animal.
Dr. Watson, veterinary surgeon, says
the dog had been poisoned. The dog
wore a legislation tag on Ilia collar
and absolutely harmed nobody. Three
or four animals have preceded him
lhe same way on the same street. Although I do not li'di etig to the. "Jesse
James gang" I will certainly bring
the parties interested to justice if il
is ever in my power.
I remain, your truly,

To slacken the selling pace in the hot season���to t    L M#(
lessen Advertising activity���indicates a resignation
which has no place in modern business.
If we think we cannot keep our business booming in

"What a jolt it must have been to the fur trade, when
tlie first mid-summer fur advertisement was run in
a dally paper! Now many fur stores are following
the example of that progressive fur man who dared
to believe that fur sales need not go down as the
mercury goes up.
Energy, linked with Advertising, has turned the
month of January into the biggest selling season
for white goods. Advertisements of a high stimulative power, combined with a disregard of "seasons,"
have opened up automobile selling two months
earlier than was once thought possible. Advertising
has started  Christmas shopping early in October
instead of the middle of December.

Wide Differences of Opinion in U.
on Subject of Administration'!
In the comment Of eastern newspapers on the situation in Mexico
there are indications that the line of
cleavage will come on the question of
war in an actual or formal sense, as
against peaceful occupation of Mexico for the purpose of ousting Huerta.
Regarding the latter, there seems to
he some difference of opinion, a char-
acteiistic remark by the Hartford
Times being that "General Huerta's
course is so baffling as almost to suggest mental incapacity. . . . this
half breed soldier, In whom blend Indian stolidity and Latin pride, lacks
the intellectual equipment to perceive
the real seriousness of his own situation."
The Boston Transcript, liowever,
sees the character of the dictator in an
entirely different light and forewarns
the president and congress as to what
active Intervention means. It says:
"It has long been supposed that foreign intervention In Mexico wou)d
unite that country In short order.
Unquestionably this is the prize for
which Huerta is playing." The New-
York Tribune thinks "that would not
necessarily mean war, since from our
point of view we are dealing with an
individual    who   has    usurped power,
leading the coun-
path   to   an   un
"The Wilson administration sadly
mlsjulged this problem when it was
one of diplomacy, pure and simple.
Having failed with the diplomatic
method it has had to turn to the meth-
of police intervention. It Is a positive relief that the fatuous policy of
'watchful waiting' has been abandon-
morniniT ! ,'(1 alH* t'lal a more promising policy
fe I of intelligent action has been adopted. The country will stand behind
the president In his new effort to
smooth out an intolerable situation in
Mexico and will wish him far greater
success now that his rocking chair
dipleimatic problem has become a more
urgent diplomatic military one."
The Hartford Couiant is similarly
outspoken  when  it says:
"No rational-minded American citi-|
zen can look upon war against the (lis-
tracted Mexicon country and its ignorant people without misgivings or j
dread, it will be, if it comes, not a j
war of necessity or duty, but a war
of errors anil mistake's.    Let us hope
you are accustomed to look to your
long chain of events
try in a righteous
avoidable collision."
The New York Evening Post Is
more blunt and declares that the president "will speedily ascertain that a
real war with all its moving words
about tlie need of broad policies of
legislation In behalf of the victims of
political and social injustice, go much
waste paper."
Criticism of the  president  by    the
Louisville  Courier-Journal  is    severe j
and explicit.    It blames him for fail-1
ing to recoginze tlie de facto govern-1
ment of Mexico and says: Mr. Roosevelt's  perversion  of the  Monroe doc
trine  was  bad  enough;   Mr.  Wilson's
is even worse."
The Kansas City Journal takes an
other view and complains that "It is
difficult to understand why he (Huerta) should be singled out for punishment and Oeneral Villa and Oeneral
Carranza, who also have been guilty
of many affronts to the dignity of this
country, should be unmolested." It
blames the president severely for not
taking the country into his confidence'
regarding Mexican matters and urges
that he "has all but lost sight of the
great humanitarian elements In this
equation." It concludes that "the series of blunders that have marked th"
administration's .policy toward Mexico
during the last year shows no sign of
Frankly Cynical.
The Brooklyn Eagle, on the other
hand, is frankly cynical of the humanitarian view point and says: "We confess an indifference as to Mexico itself or as to Mexicans themselves,
which Americans need neither dissemble nor deny." The Pittsburgh Gazette scents politics and says: "We
. . can not resist the impulse to inquire the effect of a demonstration of
this character upon the future of parties and of men."
The Boston Transcript on this phase
of the question, is rather querulous
when it reflects "that the bloodless insults committed by the federals in
the south should be made the cause
of intervention, while wholesale outrages and insults by the rebels on the
northern border should have been sub-
mitted to in silence." It says, however, that "the president will receive
a solid backing in any move he may-
Tne Toledo Blade gets into line behind tlie president by saying that "all
will not agree with the president that
his foreign policy is the best and
wisest, but all will agree that the flag
must not be insulted." The New York
Globes   makes  historical  comparison,

at the annual banquet of the American Newspaper Publishers' association held at the Waldorf Astoria, Dr.
J. A. Macdonald. of Toronto, said, In
Three yean ago I was a guest at
the annual banquet of this association. On that occasion President
Taft was the guest of honor. The
burden of his message to you was
the Importance of the service which
the newspapers of the United States
might render in urging upon congress
the trade agreement with Canada
which he was so strongly advocating.
His advocacy was the more urgent
because he honestly believed such
reciprocity in trade would serve the
highest interests of both countries.
He also was of opinion that it was
timely, because, as he thought, if
Canada entered into a fiscal agreement with the rest of the British empire it might be impossible for her to
make a special trade arrangement
with the United States. His words
were: "Canada is at the parting of
the ways"���the way of fiscal freedom
and the way of Imperial limitation.
President Taft did succeed  in  putting that reciprocity proposal through
congress.   But when it v.as submitted
to a vote of the Canadian electors In
September, 1911, the Liberal government and the prime minister, Sir Wilfrid Laurier. were defeated. Not long
afterwards President Taft met a siml-1
lar emohatic defeat at the hands of
the  people    of    the    United   States. I

Still for Reciprocity.
I recall those incidents not to make
excuses  or  explanations,  not  to    express regrets for the political results,
and  certainly   not    to    confess    any I
change of mind ag to the soundness j
of the policy of international    trade
then at issue.   1 speak not for myself i
alone, but for The Toronto Globe, of
which I am editor, and for Canadian
Liberalism,   with   which   that  journal
is allied, when I declare that the experiences of the past two years have
brought no regrets; indeed, have only
confirmed the opinions then held and
advocated.    Better    trade    relations, j
easier     exchange      of     commodities, j
larger  fiscal    freedom    between    the i
United States and Canada would pro-\
mote  the   prosperity   of   the   peoples!
of both countries, would    strengthen
their civilizing forces without uniting
their  political   institutions and  would
make the life and leadership of North
America     tell     more     vitally,     more j
powerfully, more redementively on all j
the world.

Seattle. April 28.--.Iohn Lind, a subcontractor on the county road near
Denniaon, Wash., was instantly killed
by an explosion of powder early yesterday, according to a report received
by Mitchell Brothers, the. contractors.
He was striped of clothing and his
body was mutilated.
Lind  was engaged  in  blowing    up
stumps.    It is said he carried a partly
filled box of powder to the scene, but
the   cause  of   the  explosion  has  not
been de>termined.   It is supposed that
it  occurred   while 'he   was  placing  a
stick of powder under the stump.
I     There were two concussions, one of
such   force   as  would   be  made  by   a
single stick, and another as of a large
I quantity of powder.   The powder car-
| ried in the box was not to be found.
j    The  man  nearest to Lind was his
! partner, who was 150  feet away.  He
was not affected.
Mitchell said he was not acquainted
with Lind. and did not know where he
lived or if he had survivors. He had
a sub-contract from a sub-contractor.

Dairymen    Ordered    to     Pasteurize���
New Ordinance Receives Sanction
of   Board  of   Health.
j Toronto, April 2S. A new ordinance, enforcing the pasteurization of
all milk sold in the city of Toronto,
was drawn up by the medical health
officer, lir. Hastings, and sanctioned
by the local board of health yesterday afternoon.   It reads as follows:
"Inasmuch as unpasteurizi >i milk
or cream is or may be prejudicial to
public health, it is hereby ordained
that on and after the first day o,
June, 1814, ii shall be unlawful tor

cream, butter, etc., that has been
made with milk or cream, or milk and
cream that has not Jieen scientifically
pasteurized to the satisfaction of the
medical officer of health.
"Provided,  however, that   this doei
not apply to certified milk as defined
in  our  milk   bylaw  und   iu   the  milk
bill of the provincial legislature."
Menace to Community.
In  his  report, the    health    officer
','ves   much    information    explaining
the menace to a community of an un

ply.    "It   must    be    apparent to    Ih,.

he felt that il would he a good thing,

ther it could not find openings for
trade in the European conttueiitnl

by the practice of the leading militant society. A significant feature of
the new movement Is that It is fathered by suffragettes who were once
j strong supporters of militant tactics,
1 but who, at various times, have been
forced to withdraw from the Women's
Social and  Political  union.
The simmer ot discontent, which
now promises to break Into revolt, begun last year when Mr. and Mrs. F.
W. Pethwick Lawrence on their return from Canada were informed that
Mrs. Punkhu.'st no longer desired
their services on the executive com-
initltx. e,; the organization. This Intl-
i mation was carried to the l^wrenees
before their boat reached the dock.
They were Inclined at first to laugh
at It us preposterous, but on landing
tbey found that Mrs. PankJiurst had
made herself so powerful during their
absence that It would he hopeless to
fight her edict, so out they went.
Demand Results.
As firm believers in the efficiency of
militants tactics, the Lawrences did
not air their grievance, in the 'hopi
; that the autocratic regime of the I'ank
hursts would advance the cause, which
they held above all else. This truce
ami the determination of the various
fonsltutional societies net to criticize any tactics, which sought a common end. gave Mrs. Pankhurst and her
daughter, Christabel, abundant time
in which to perfect their organization,
before opposition was offend to their
autocratic sway. But the promised
results did not materialize, and now
the Women's Social and Political union faces both opposition without and
dissension within.
While dismissing members of her
personal staff, Mrs. Pankhurst has
also been discharging privates in the
ranks. One of these women, who was
expelled from the organization last
week declared that she was dismissed
on the most trivial pretext possible,
and that lately Mrs. Pankhurst had
dismissed a number of the workers
fromthe organization, apparently
through caprice. The dismissed
member asserted that the militant?
are dwindling dally until at the present moment there are only 3,000 active workers in the Women's Social
and Political union.
These women are subject to Mrs.
Pankhurst's decrees, and may be called upon at any time to perform militant deeds. In spite of the dwindling
number of workers the finances of
the organization are said to be in an
excellent state. This is due mainly to
two Scottish spinster sisters, whose
fortunes were made in an Atlantic
steamship line. Their subscriptions
to the funds of the militant fighting
forces are heavy and unfailing.
where the old Knglish had sufficiently
brutalized the game to give rise to
many adverse criticisms, fragments of
which have survived to the present
Legend has it that In 962, during
tbe Danish invasion of Kngland, a
good man of Chester captured a Dane,
beheaded him and knocked his head
out Into the street to furnish sport
for the "fellows." The game of kicking the head around the city streets
and even outside the walls of tbe ancient Uoman-built city grew in favor.
The exercise was Indulged in whenever a Chester sport could annex a
Danish head. But eventually the supply of Danish heads gave out. But
the sport bad secured a stronghold on
the exert.ise-loving Anglo-Saxons and
a "balle of leather called a football!-" was substituted.
The game developed into a rough-
and-tumble scrimmage, and the ball
itself would often lie forgotten for
hours while the excited players chased one another through alleys and
lanes and even into the houses of the
more respectable citizens as results of
arguments over tbe rules. It seems
lhat even before William tbe Conqueror invaded England the interpretation of the football rules was a
much-mooted matter. Sconces were
cracked, bones were broken and ftves
were lost. Yet the game spread In
favor, and. jumping over the intervening centuries, Is still spreading.
The modern school of football critics, just at present a subdued mln-
faction expressed by the public apd
the press, Is not a whit more bitter
than Philip Stubbs, a literary Briton,
who way back in 1583 raked football
of that day up and down, over and
across ln the following fashion: ���
As concerning footballe, I   protest
unto you  il may rather be called a I
friendlle kind of a tight than a play
nr recreation, a bloody and murther-1
Ing practice than a felowy sport or
pastice.   For doth not everyone lie in
wait for  his   adversary,   seeking  to |
overthrow him and plcke him on the |
nose, though It be on hard stoneB, or
ditch or dale, or valley or hill, so he
has him down, and he that can serve
the most of this fashion  is counted
the only fellow, and who but he.   So
that  by   this  means  their  necks  are
broken, sometimes their backs, some- j
times their   arms,   scftnetimes   their |
noses gush out with blood, sometimes
their  eyes  start  out;   for  they  have
the sleights to mix one between two,
to dash  him against the heart with
their elbows, to butt him under the
short ribs with their gripped fists, and
with their kneeB to catch him on the
hip and picke him on his neck with
a hundred murthering devices."

Trio of Convicts Stopped in Rush for
Freedom   at   Walla   Walla
Walla Walla. April 28. Mike Donnelly, probably the most desperat"
prisoner In the state penitentiary,
with two other inmates, Livingstone
and Miller, made an attempt to escape by overpowering the turnkey,
but three shots fired by guards after
tho men had gained lhe prison yards
made them give up and now they are
in   solitary  confinement.
Donnelly, doing life, has a record of
two escapes. Livingstone and Miller
two months ago were caught in an attempt to escape.
The attempt today took place during
yard exercise. Donnelly was locked
In his cell, but Livingstone and Miller were allowed In the corridor. I.iv-
| ingstone and Miller hid anil Donnelly
from his cell set up a cry. Turnkey
Connlck ran to the cell und Donnelly
told him a man in the cell above was
trying  to  hang   himself.
With   Knife   Attacks   Turnkey.
As Connlck started up the steps
.Livingstone, who had secured a knife,
attacked Connlck. J. Clark, a life
termer from Chehalis, clerk in the
turnkey's office, came to Connlck's
assistance and struggled with Living
stone. Miller came up with an iron
bar and hit Connlck on the head,
knocking him unconscious. Livingstone and Miller overpowered Convict
Clark and then took Connlck's keys
from his pocket, unlocking Donnelly's
cell. The three made their way out
Into the prison yard, separated by a
high wall from the rest of the convicts
and by other walls from the outside.
Guards on the walls begun shooting
and the men lost their nerve, throwing up their hands.
Tried  Before to  Escape.
Livingstone and Miller are five-
year minimum men and two months
ago during yard privilege hour secreted themselves In a lavatory against
the prison wall and started tunneling
out. They were missed and found.
Had they gone through the wall they
were working on they had another before them.
Donnelly escaped three years ago
from the jute mill in a duststorm and
was caught several weeks later In
Montana. About six months ago he
escaped from the center of the prison
about dusk and was arrested in Everett two months ago after a career as
a desperado, and fierce battle with
the police. Clark was sentenced for
shooting a bank caslhler at Chehalis.
