NELSON: rFRTD^Yf MORNING FEBRUARY 1 1901  r      *��.    _J  y   PRICE ^FIYE CENTS  PETTI&BBW  Declares That Filipinos Are  ��� Not Enemies.  THE TRUTH IS SUPPRESSED  BATTLE OF FEBRUARY 14 ORDERED  FROM WASHINGTON.  Organization of the Provisional Government   Completed  and Will  Soon Be Enforced.'  Washington, January 31.���In  the senate today Mr. Pettigrew  referred again to the fact that the  senate had refused "to - pass his  resolutions making- inquiry, for the  facts concerning the situation in  the Philippines.^ ^He") asserted his  belief that the' full records would  show that the battle of February.  4th, 1899, had been ordered from**  Washington and he charged that  only such facts were given torthe_  public as would suit' tlie, purpose of  the party- in' power.. He charged  ._ that general MacArthur|s report-  had beeii suppressed ��� for" partisan  purposes aud that ".the reports of  the Taft commission'- were "colored  on orders from  Washington to fit  - the* emergency.} He .asserted that  the Filipinos' were not' enemies of  the  United'*State8   antf he 'hoped  they would be  successful .in their!  contest for liberty. ..   \ ~~  "I hope the day will never come,"  " the said,-"when'I shall^ceaee to.sympathize with a people struggliugfbr.  - liberty no matter, where they are."  Mr. Pettingrew introduced and- had  read a long >letter -from Thomas  Masearde, a military- governor of  the Philippine islands, iu which/ it'  was,charged that severer torments  'upon the Filipinos by the American troops had been inflicted than  the Spaniards had ever been guilty  of. Robbery, pillage, violation and  murder, the lettersaid, are the flrst  proofs of protection, we receive  when the American soldiers enter a  Filipino community.     ���  The, letter writer characterized  general Otis as the blind instru-'  uient of' the ambitious McKinley.  Mr. Pettigrew said he would not  cite the letter if the charges made  _in it,-were.not eonfirmed-by��� letters  from American soldiers themselves.  He believed these barbarities were  practiced by the Macabees, whom it  was now intended to enlist. Mr.  Pettigrew presented an article by  Sixto, which Mr. Pettigrew said refuted some official literature as to  the diversity of tiibes. Other Filipino documents which were read  alleged that their forces when captured were exposed to extreme  torture, despite the official orders  that civilized methods of warfare  be pursued. The unalterable purpose of continuing the war until  liberty was secured was set forth  at length.  Mr. Calliuger inquired as to  whether Mr. Pettigrew personally  believed the United States soldiers  were guilty of atrocities and tortures in the Philippines. He said  that for one he did not believe  American soldiers were committing  atrocities anywhere.  Mr. Pettigrew responded that  perhaps the New Hampshire senator had failed to read the secretary  of war's testimony before the" military commission that 'Macabees  who murdered and robbed were  being enlisted.  Mr. Teller of Colorado rose to  state that United States officers  were being disciplined for practic- ���  ing the "water cure" on natives.  The senator also had received a call  lately from a man who came on a  party just* after they had inflicted  this deplorable torture and saw the  victim covered witli blood and  mangled about the mouth. Senator  Teller criticized the course of the  war department in seeking to discredit those who opposed the army  canteen. After describing tlie horrors of the water-cure torture, Mr.  Teller said the American flag could  come down none too soon if it re  quired such efforts to uphold our  authority..  The senator condemned a statement attributed to general A. Mac-  Arthur, in which he is said to have  told a returning regiment-that one.  of its chief services was in engendering a warlike spirit, without which  no nation could endure. *    ''  Senator Hale here arose to * state  that he felt a sense of surprise and  outrage that the commander of the  main portkttTof the. United States  ar'myYwhile engaged' in war should  be so possessed with the old world  spirit pf military conquest and mil?  itary ambition as ' to use ' the  language attributed to'him.Y and if  it proved true that this language  had been used, Mr. Hale-said he  feared there would be a terrible  reaction from such sentiments.  Senator Teller proceeded to give  TT   _ _       jJ��$S_ty of the allied  f ^JgSISlSS^flnitely worse  than the Boxers. Senator Teller  characterized the Philippine friars  as tlie vilest of the vile, whose con?  duct could not with propriety be  referred to openly in the senate  chamber, arid yet the Philippine  commission had put this obnoxious  class in charge of all the schools " of  the island. ,-��.-.��� -f*-     ��� '-       ,-��-*. -  ROSSLAND AGAINST NELSON  THE  HOOKEY    GAME  ' YOUNGSTERS.

A'special meeting of the Nelson  Liberal Association was held at  the board of Trade rooms last evening. A letter was read from president W. A. Galliher, M.P., in which  he stated that he wished to resign  from his position. His resignation  was accepted and Dr. Forin was  elected by ballot to the presidential  office. "Mr. Galliher was unani-"  monsly elected honorary president.  The vacancy in the executive committee made by the election of Dr.  Forin to his new position will be  filled by James McPhee. Other  business of a more private nature  was also transacted. ' There was  over twenty-five members present.  Dragged by Runaway Horse.  Lbwiston, Idaho,' January 31.���  Ben Reeves, a well known stock  man of this city, met with a painful accident today. He threw a  riata on a fractious horse while  standing on the ground. The horse  became frightened and started to  run. The long rope became half  hitched on one of the man's legs  and dragged him for 40 or 50 feet  to the railroad.. The foot came in  contact with tfae rail and stopped  the horse by the jerk long enough  for spectatorsto release the victim.  The leg was badly broken below the  knee.**  ' The hockey game between the  Juniors .of .Rossland, better known  as the "Cyclone B(3h_zeyC\v.\},"tmdx  the' Juniors'- of 'Nelson, which was  played at the rink last--evening, .resulted in a tie.

The Secretary of the Vancouver  Trades and Labor council wrote the  Slocan Miners' ��� Union recently regarding the proposed Coast-Kootenay railway. The union appointed  a committee to act in conjunction  with the council, consisting of J. A.  Baker, H ,L- Fife and R.' C. Andrews. This matter is, says the  Independent, regarded as of the  most vital importance to the workers of this province' and the Kootenays in particular. The miners of  the Slocan in a long communication  say they regard this Coast-Kootenay railway as almost the last hope  of the Kootenays for a successful  legitimate and proper competitor  to the C.

The .sense  of security which possessed  these  people   is' best evidenced   by the  overtures  which have been made  for the installation of all kinds of  gambling devices from nickel-in-the-  slot machines to the roulette-wheel,'  and going so far iu &ome cases as  to acccount for the delivery in Nelson of the  machines  in, question..  This may be-accepted by the tin-  horus as   an   intimation to walk,  thus saving   themselves   and   the  police unnecessary trouble.  An effort is being made on behalf  of the employers, of   Chinese and  Japanese labor to secure the disallowance of the legislation passed  during the last session of the legislature, in. the interests of the white  wage-earners   of > the  province , as  against Chinese, and. Japanese im-.  migrants.    These acts are known as  the-British Columbia Immigration  Act and the Labor Regulation Act,  1900.   The first requires that every  immigrant, before being permitted  to enter the province,  shall be required to write out and-sign in his  own handwriting, in some European  language, an application for permission to enter.    The second- act  requires-that all- persons employed  upon .any-, public  work, or other  work carried on under a-provincial  charter, shall Jbe required-to read  the provisions' of tho act, in some  European language.     In  framing  these acts the members of the legis-  , lature practically adopted the sug-  Ygestionsof the imperial and Dominion;, authorities, , of* applying-,an-  educational test-similar to  that! of  .the Natal Act.   With-respect to the  Immigration Act the legislature has  power-* undeiythe "British ���; North  America Act to "make -laws-- in relation to immigration so long as such  laws are not repugnant i to any .act  of the Dominion parliament.*,    It is  worth, noting that. the. Dominion  statute-'sets out that. Chinese, may  come.in to the, province-, upon payment of" a head, tax of $100, and  the issue turns upon^the-' question-  whether this further condition, that  theyrshall   have  a, knowledge of  some European language^ is~repug*r  nanttothe Donxinion act.   For its.  own purposes the ^Dominion says  the Chinamen must contribute $100  in cash to the federal exchequer,  and the government ��� of the province in which they propose to make  their residence adds, .for its -own  benefit,.that in addition they shall  have knowledge of some European  language.   As to the Labor Regulation Act it is simply a matter of  agreement, in which applicants for  charters and privileges from   the  provincial government'agree, that  in  consideration for such charters  and privileges they-<Vill not, employ  in- any capacity any -person who  cannot read  the provisions of.;the.  Labor Regulation Act.   The government  of -the   province   should  have no difficulty in warding off  diallowance if it displays the same  energy as the men who are seeking  to bring disallowance about.  The city council of Kamloops is  being urged by one of its local  papers-to take such steps as may  be necessary to convert the city  into one huge hospital for the consumptives of Eastern Canada. This  is probably the largest price which  Kamloops could possibly pay for  i fame.          For Reorganization of the Army.  Washinoton, January 31.���After  an eventful legislative experience,  beginning with the present session  of-, congress and covering about two  months, the bill for the reorganizing  of the army of the United: 'Statbs  passed its last stage in congress and  nowagbes ��*' the* presidentufor. his  8ignature.^The-Jinal step was taken  imthe senate, where.by a.vote of 33  to 25 the conference report on the  bill was agreed to.

T. R., international limited, conductor Patrick B. Mahon, and driver John Curran, came down the- grade   a mile  east of Bowmanville   station   at  a'  speed-estimated not less than 60 or  65 miles an hour, intending as is the  usual custom to   pass   the*- station  without stopping, but1 today, being  somewhat behind time,   the   train  '   was making very rapid.tims.  Coining from a* part, of,'Bowmanville in a: covered buggy; with.the  top up, on what is familiarly known  as the Wharf road, just at the time  were Herbert Hallet, of Whitby,  ' stepson-of'W. J.'Hallet,-farmer and  milk dealer, Jiving about two^niles  ���west of Whitby town, and his two  cousins, Misses Helen*'and Amelia  Knight, -j only daughter's of Mrs.  William Knight, widow, residing in"  this' town, in* poor circumstances.  Whether engaged in earnest conversation and > ignorant .of the  approach of the flyer, or making an  attempt to''cross1-< the track, before'  the train reached the crossing and  y failing, ,will never be known. All  three were' instantly ' killed, and'  only.' one individual' besidess, the  driver of the engine "is known" to  l&ve witnessed the:8hocking calamity. ~ The .carriage ^was about. half  way over the-railway- track-.when  the engine struck it, carrying the^  vehicle 30 or 40 rods on the cowcatcher. The horse was scarcely  injured, though thrown over-with-  the forces of the,.blow, /one. shoe  being wrenched off.' ' In a'twinkling  the shafts, tugs and holdbacks  were snapped aud the horse went  free, galloping to the, residence of  Mrs. William Puley, a mile distant,  where Helen, an elder sister, resided  with her aged aunt.        *-- "  :Amelia, a younger sister,., was.  carried 10 or 15 rods and dropped,  on the side of the track, rolling into  a ditch just in front-of Robert  Stanley's- residence.'. Helen Knight  and Herbert Hallett "were carried on  tlie engine to,the station, where the  train - was -.quickly   brought to a  ^ standstill and/an investigation immediately " instituted. ' All three  were dead and the elder Miss Knight  was terribly injured about the body  and head,- her arms and legs being  broken.: Hallet was likewise badly  cut on the right side of the head  and was considerably bruised about  his body. The younger woman was  bleeding profusely when found,  having also sustained some bad cuts  about the head and face.  Dr. Tilley,'after hearing tho particulars, decided no inquest was  necessary,.as no blame attached to  the train hands. The whistle was  blown long -and loud before the  train reached the crossing and the  deaths were purely accidental. The  crossing is not considered a dangerous one as the fields all around  it are level', and there is a full view  of .the trackfqr a considerable distance on eitlier'sicle of tlie road.  Prohibition Dpsen't Prohibit.  For a-prohibition'i>own in a state  where prohibition^ said to -.be a  success, Portland, Maine, seems to  be fairly well supplied-with "blind  pigs." The sheriff of Portland" an-  , nounces that he isgoing-to -try to.  shut up "thirteen hotels, eighty-:  eight saloons, seventeen kitchen  bars, three wholesale <. drug stores,  fifty drug stores, four bottling establishments and about fifty other  places where liquor is spld in the  city." - Portland is a city about  four fifths the size of Winnipeg but  on the showing of its sheriff, it completely eclipses Winnipeg in the opportunities it affords for the quenching of alchoholic thirst.  Death Sentence Commuted.  From Ottawa comes confirmation  of the telegraphed report that James  Slorah of Dawson City, who was  convicted of murder and sentenced  to be hanged on March 1st, lias had  his sentence- commuted.

Mr. Mills'recommendation.   The,. unfortunate man  will be taken to the^British Columbia  penitentiary,, where   he -will  spend the - remainder of his days.  James Slorah, who went to the Yukon from Seattle, was - a bartender  at one of the hotels in Dawson City.  He married Pearl Mitchell, who was  a solicitor for drinks at one of the  resorts of the city.   She continued  in that capacity after she~married.  From the evidence in the case it  appears that Slorah came home late  oue morning and bis wife proceeded  to upbraid him. He had been drinking, and the result of the quarrel-  was "that, he sent two shots'into her**  head.  -A defense of suicide was put-  up at the trial, but it failed, and'  the   jury brought in a verdict of  guilty of murder with a recommendation to mercy.-. In view - of; that-  recommendation, and -also on4.account of there being no premedita--  tion.'the executive has changed the  sentence to- one Yof | imprisonment  for life.

The Prince and Liberty BolL  Salt Lako Trlbuno,  And now they are telling that  when the prince of Wales came to  America in 1800, partly in a joke  and partly in'irony, he was invited  to visit Independence hall to view  the treasures which are the most  forcible reminders of America's de-.  fiance to her mother country. The  young prince went there, took in  the portraits of the men who stirred  up- tbe revolution, made complimentary remarks upon them, looked  with interest on the manuscript of  the Declaration of Independence,  and took in his hands the swords of  the men who fought the armies, of  George III. Finally he came'to a  garret and was told that there  was where the bell was-rung when  the declaration was read. Then he  wanted to know what had become  of the bell. They found it for him  with the aid of their canes. It was  hidden away beneath a mass of  peanut shells, orange peels, waste  paper and other debris.  The prince was shocked. For a  moment he gazed at the poor  cracked bell that had rung at the  nation's birth, and then. he said;  "This old bell' is the greatest relic  this republic has today.
