Tcilfnrr Vitill Be to Deflect Trade
from Hew York d Roitm
to Porta Farther to the
I.ONDON. May t The suggestion thrown
out by 81r Wilfrid Uunsr. the Canadian
premier, to the effect that the Imperial
government, without violating lt free
trade, principles, might give the colonies a
quid pro quo for their prcferntlal treat
ment of British gtx1s by subsidizing lines
of steamers between England and the more
Important colonies. Is being seriously con
sidered by the cabinet.
The object of the suggestion Is to bring
about a reduction In freight charges, thus
giving an Indirect form of preferences to
the colonics. Those In close touch with
the government, however, point out that
the British government ha spent millions
of pounds sterling In profitless railroads In
Africa and that this Is the legitimate fore
for a preference which the colonies are
entitled to expect. The Canadian premier
specially suggested Imperial steamship
lines between England and Canada and
Canada and Australia, reducing the time
from England to Australia to twenty' In
stead of thirty day, and in the end di
verting some of the traffic now going by
way of New York.
Botha Springs Sarprtse.
General Botha, premier of the Transvaal,
sprung a suprlse at the imperial conference
today by the declaration that he was un
compromisingly opposed to a commercial
conference within the empire. It was gen
erally supposed he would agree with Alfred
: Dak In, whose views already had been
strongly endorsed by Blr Joseph Ward,
. Frederick R. Moor and Dr. Jameson, re
spectively, premiers of New Zealand. Natal
and Cape Colony.
General Botha declared it would be quit
competent for his government to raise tar
iffs against British goods or against those
of other countries If that policy commended
Itself. lie protested against any attempt
to rob the respective governments of their
freedom In tariff matters.
AFTERMATH 0F MAY DAY
Majority of Mrs Arrested la Parla

FARI8. May 2. There was no echo today
of the May day rioting. Jacob Law, the
man who fired at a detachment of cuiras
siers from the top of an omnibus, wound
ing two of them, and who was severely
handled, probably will recover and will be
tried for attempted murder. The man de
Clares himself to be an anarchist and says
his only regret la that he dtd not kill one
of the officers. He claims to be a natural
ised American, but his naturalization pa
pers have not been found, and It Is ap
parent from letters in the possession of the
police that he lived only a short time in
the United States.
Leas than twenty of the men arrested
yerterday for riotous behavior will be pros
ecuted. The others have been released.
The majority of the newspapers expreas
the opinion that the occurrences here yee
terdsy would have been avoidable If the
government had allowed the workmen to
parade as they do in Ar.glo-Saxon c.un
trtes. The opposition press Is inclined to
hold the cabinet responsible for the action
of the socialists. The Figaro says:
It la difficult for a government to defend
social order when several of Its members
dwe their political fortunes to the ardor
.. with which they attacked it In the past.
The surprising thing is that anarchy has
not been sunk deeper into the masses of
MONEY FOR CANAL AT KIEL

Dollars In Work at This
BERLIN. May Z.-The Reichstag today
passed the first reading of the bill which
appropriates IX.7SO.000 as the first Install
ment of the amount to be expended la
widening and deepening the Kiel ship canal.
Various speakers agreed that the enlarge
ment was desirable, but blamed the gov
ernment for falling to foresee originally
that larger dimensions would become neces
sary. Bom complained that the German gov
ernment's explanation of the necessity for
enlarging the canal was founded wholly on
Herr Leonhardt said the Baltic ports had
failed to reap the expected advantage
from th canal sod that only Hamburg had
profited by It-
It was further Insisted that the addi
tional expenditure of I'iS.TW."). although
th canal only cost 40,(.J,000 originally,
must b regarded as a heavy sacrifice on
the part of the coux.try, considering the
fact that the present canal had not yet
reached the stag of being able to pay the
Interest oo the Investment,
The bill waa referred to a committee.
