It now seems more certain lhan ever

thn I'onatruollon of two linns nf railway from Midway to the coast.
Among the passengers on Friday's
train was .las. H. Kennedy, of St.
Thulium, Ont.,and a party of surveyors,
whn will lie engaged for some time in
running the preliminary line of the V.
V. _ E. railway from Midway west.
Tht; party left on Saturday for a point
about, 15 miles west of here and will
work towards Midway,
It is .now the intention of Mann h
Mackenzie to huild the V. V. & E,
whether the government, subsidy he
granted or not and il. is a sure thing
that, if they do, the C. P. R. will not
he lung behind them in commending
operations.
The western terminal of lbe Coast-
Koolenay railway will he Vancouver.
Thu route will extend through the valley of the Fraser river, scale the Hope
mountains, traverse thu Siniilkameen
and Okanagan districts and a portion
of the. Boundary district. Considerable
speculation is being indulged in respecting the eastern terminus of the road.
Both Cascade and Midway, points in
the Boundary district on the international frontier, have been mentioned
as lbe pi obable terminal, Hisohviims
lhat the proposed railway will be useless unless it forms a connection with
some other line in order lo handle
through truffle ; that Jim Hill of the
Great Northern has an understanding
with Mann _ Mackenzie is also apparent. Th** .simple circumstances that
the surveyors travelled west an passes
issued by ihe (ireat Northern tells its
own story ; moreover Howard Hill, a
inemher of the outllt is stated to he a
relative of the president of the company.
Jim Hill's surveyors Lave already
surveyed a line from Marcus, a point
on the Spokane Falls k Northern, up
tbe water grade of the Kettle river
through the Colville reservation lo
Nelson, Wash., a point foui and one
half miles from Grand Forks, The
survey also touches a point on the
frontier, twelve miles east, at Cascade,
II. C. If Jim Hill does noi build further wbbI. lhan Casende or Nelson the
Mann k Mackenzie people will have to
cross the divide hetween Boundary
creek and Fourth of July creek, a feat
that can not be accomplished without
the expenditure of a large sum of
money. Hill, however, would have no
difficulty in extending his line further
west, from Nelson by following lhe
water grade of the main Kettle river
entirely Ihrough American territory
to Midway, B. C. If Hill comes as far
ae Nelson, a point west of Cascade,-il
is evident lhat he will also extend
south to Republic and other camps on
the Reservation, The best engineering talent has expressed the opinion
that the alternative route via tbe San
Poil valley .is impracticable owing to
the cost.

province :
* "The recent increase of Are insurance

to British Columbia. On account of
the greatly increased Are waste of recent years, this action nf tbe companies has become necessary. It has also
heen made evident to them that the
cause of these fires must he removed
so far as possible and greater protection
supplied. To accomplish the former a
system of specific ratings has been
adopted hy them for the eastern cities,
similar to tbat at present, in use in British Columbia. Specific ratings are
separate rates, ptihlished for each
building, and made by an inspector
after a personal and thorough inspection of each building, taking into con
sideration construction, occupancy,
surroundings and condition of the
building. The advantages in this system to the owners and companies alike
can readily he seen. A well conditioned, constructed and protected building
will enjoy a low rate of insurance,
while one adjoining il, which is poorly
constructed and in alittered and untidy
condition, must pay for such deticicn
cies and neglect. The owner of the
latter will want to know why bis rale
is so much higher than that of his
neighbor, and unon learning the company's reasons will recognize the consistency of the difference and willingly
correct the limits, so far as it mny lie
possible, in order to obtain a lowof
rate, Thus much of the fire hazard is
eliminated. The system formerly in
use in the east has lieen to establish n
rate for each of four classes of buildings
in a city and apply such rale, regardless of the many deficiencies and causes
from accumulation of combustible litter and rubbish frequently found iu
huildings."

The Dominion Government proposes
to guarantee five-eighteenths on Sfl,
000,000 towards the cost of. laying a
cable lietween Canada and Australia.
It is very satisfactory to know that
in the course of a few days lhe members of the Chinese Commission will
leave Ottawa for the coast to begin
the investigations, wbich has been
entrusted to them,
Mining men will be interested in the
announcement which has just been
made lhat the Provincial Government
has determined to increase tbe size of
placer claims lo 250 feet square. A
great deal of lhe provisions of theold
net emanated from Atlin mid oilier
northern districts and this will now be
removed.
The Provincial Government has
pledged itself to support the Coast
Kootenay Kailway and a party of
surveyors are already iu the field for
the purpose of making the survey for
this line. Tbis certainly looks as if
the V, V, „ K. would he built, at no
late date for Mann k Mackenzie have
promised lhat, if the Dominion and
Provincial subsidy be granted, 100
miles of Ihe mad will he built Lefoie
the end of the year, It is almost a
certainty that if the V. V. k E, coin
niences to huild tbat tbe C. P. It. will
be forced to extend its line from here
to the coast, because Ibat corporation
will never allow any other road to
have a monopoly of ali the traffic between here and the coast.
Veidi'p will contains one curious
item. The residuary legatee is his
niece, Maria Verdi, who Is married to
Siguor Carrara. To the infant asylums
and tbe hospital for the blind at Genoa
he bequeaths £4,000. Large sums are
also lefl to the charitable institutions
and lo the poor of his native village,
Roncole, and also to those of Hussein,
where he lived for many years. Then
comes the following uncomfortable re
quest,: "In the dining room of my
villa. St. Again, will he found two large
wooden lioxes of great antiquity. I de-
sire that neither shall be opened, hut
that both he burned immediately aft*
my obsequies." What these mysterious
boxen contained can be mailer only for
wildest conjecture. .M.8.S. of unpublished operas is what the majority nf
the guessers are pronouncing.
The Federal Government afler making a diligent enquiry into matters nf
establishing a branch of the Royal
Mint of Canada, has, il is understood,
decided to begin operations in connection therewith, so soon as the necessary preliminaries ace arranged. Of
course it will take some lime to com
plete all Ihe preliminaries, but nevei
theless the tact remains that Canada
is to have a mint, * It will not, how
ever, be located iu the west as was at
first supposed, Imt in all probability at
Ottawa, ii being the capital, where the
paper money, postage stamps, inland
revenue stamps, etc., are. printed.
People in this Province would like to
have seen it established in British
Columbia, hut would much rather see
it established at Ottawa than not to
have it all, us a branch of the Imperial Mint will greatly benefit the
entire Dominion.
A Oovernnient assay office is to he
established at Vancouver, and it is
most likely that W. Pellew-Hai vey
will be placed in charge. The Dominion assay office will lie a distinct und
entirely separate institution from the
Provincial assay office now conducted
by Mr. Harvey at Vancouver. This
action of the Dominion Government is
looked upon with satisfaction by ull

We notice in Eastern despatches
that Dr. Horsey M. P. for North Gray,
bus mt induced a hill at Ottawa wilh
the object of making May 24th an
annual public holiday in Canada. This
is a good idea from several points of
view—it being a very fitting tribute to
ber late Majesty to commemorate her
glorious reign in this manner, and
again from a practical side, a holiday
at this time of Ibe year is most desirable lieing conveniently situated between Easter holidays and Dominion
Day. In speaking of this matter a
correspondent to ihe Toronto Ololie
says :—"I think the most beneficent,

Let them speak through tbeir mouthpiece, the ubiquitous press; let tbe

following resolution with respect to
the Pacific cable : That whereas hy

An Appeal.
• [The editor of the South African
News has been nriested al Cape Town
fnr quoting a London paper containing
a false and seditious libel against Lord
Kitchener.)
Oh, Little England gentlemen,
Who sit at houie at ease,
I'm writing wilh a painful pen,
From South Africa across the seas.
Our soldiers (as you hinted It)
Are steeped in every sin ;
Yet when I went and printed it
They promptly ran me iti.
I fancied I was pretty smart
In fabricating tales
That would distress Ihe Irish heart
And raise Ihe wrath of Wales.
But, friends, I must apologize ;
The papers that you run,
For really quite stupendous lies,
Deserve—and take —the bun.
Ah, you can guess, dear friends, how
much
• We chortled when tbey came;
How all the dear, die loyal Dutch
Rejoiced to read the same
It's quite impossible to tell
Why peaceful ihey abide,
Wiih sueli incentives to rebel
As weekly you provide.
Spare Briiish Boers, a l bought for me,
When sitting o'er your u ine ;
I gniHn beneath a tyranny ; •
A dreadful fate is mine.
For Kitchener—lhat man of blood-
Has shouted in my ear :
"Look here, young man, stop slinging
mud ; ,
1 wnn'l have libels here."
Yel I was quoting things lhat are
Tbe "faeis" you daily tell;
How we've ('let loose in Africu"
Considerable hell.
Like you, I've only scattered mud,
And sworn a lie wis true ;
But, then, you have no man of blood
To play the deuce with you.
Ah, friends nf Boers (as friends; of
Greece.) ,,
You have a glorious past.
Although you're hound to keep the
peace,
Your sympathies are vast,
And if yon hale a lance nr gun,
And loath the cannon's roar,
You yet can hetler any one
In faking np a war.

I given him,
The Whole Town In the Hand* Of
a Receiver.
The entire town nf Molson, Okanoganicounly, Wash., is at present enjoying Ihe unique distinction nf heing
in the hands of a receiver. Molson is
a small town in the Okanogan mining
district which is owned or claimed to
be owned by one Geo. Mecham, And
"there's the rub," for there are a number of people who do not believe that
Mnlsun is tlie lawful property of
Mecham.
The occupancy of the town hy J, f).
Mitchell, as receiver, and a numher nf
deputies Under his orders is the sequel
to the proceediiiKN begun in Spokane
on Ilie lilt.h of this month. Happy ft,
Hindman of Spokane and A. G. Neill
of Chesaw represent the creditors of
George Mechnin. These attorneys in
behalf of theft'clients on the liiih day
of February, 1001, Hied a petition of
involuntary bankruptcy against George
B. Mecham in the United Slates circuit
court situated in Spokane.
The petition was granted hy Judge
Hanford, and J. D. Mitchell was subsequently appointed receiver. Upon
receipt of the order from Judge Hanford appointing a receiver I he Spokane
attorneys telephoned word of the
court's aclion lo Mr. Mitchell, who
proceeded to act out bin part iu the
little drama, The affair has caused no
end of excitement in Mnlsun, us well
as in Ihe surrounding towns, nnd every
detail is being paid the closest attention.
Thc Tuesday issue uf the Seattle
Post-Intelligencer snys :
"Monday night, acting under an
order of the court, which was telephoned in from Spokane, J. I), Milchell, as receiver, accompanied .hy a
host of deputies, swarmed down upon
the unsuspecting town of Molson and
proceeded tu take charge of aff iirs ann^j
make ao inventory of Ihe liquors in
saloons, lhc furniture nf the buildings
and closed up the Colville 'Reservation
syndicate's offices. ' They also took
charge of the Hotel Tnnavket, one of
the finest hotels in Okanogan country.
"The affair which precipitated the
action is recited in the fact that George
B. Mecham Ave months ago left fir
New York to nrgnnize'a company for
the purpose of raising money to develop the Poland Cliinn mine and also
to greasy the wheels for the further
growth of Molson and its tributary
mines. Whetr Mr. Mecham left he
was considerably in debt, and the
petitioned set forth thnt it is their belief thai Meibnin iloi's not intend to
return, in spite of lhe aulhoiitativ,
statements given out hy hN agents at
MiiNoll that he hart been successful iu
financial unit ters in the east nnd that
his return would he n matter of bul a
short time.
"Ernest Peck, counsel for the On!-
ville Reservation syndicate, of which
Mr. Mecham Is the controlling spirit,
stated to-day to the Post-Intelligencer
correspondent that, he had imt been
officially informed of the proceedings
yet, hut Ihnt the case would be fought
ont in Spokane al an early date. The
company intends lo resist Ihe charges
made, and il is hinted thnl proceedings
have l>ecn irregular on lhe part of the
receiver so there is a prospect of a big
legal fight Id determine the equity of
Ihe case. Mr. Mecham is now on his
way from New York to Molson."
W. W. Hindman, of the firm nf
Happy k Hindman, Spokane, when
asked about the mailer snid : "We
telephoned the inforinatioii concerning
lhe order of lhe court, np to Mr. Mitchell, and I guess, he did the rest. We
have not heard from Molson directly,
but from what, we hear in a roundabout way everything seems to las
going all right. Our lino, working in
conjunction with A. G. Neill of Chesaw, represents three of lhe creditors.
As this is a rase of involuntary bankruptcy I do not know how many uioie
creditors there are and I can't tell how
long it will he before we will be ready
for trial, as Mecham is not here and
we don't know where he is."

Columbia River Bridge.
The work of construction on the tl.
P. R, bridge across the Columbia
river below Robson, is progressing
satisfactorily. The east and west
abutments have lieen completed and
piers No. I and 8, which adjoin Ihese,
have also heen finished. The foiinda
Won for lhe pier upon which the pivot
will be placed, being No, 4, has been
completed to the level nf tne water.
The caissons for piers Nns. 2 and H have
l«en constructed and will he sunk into
place witli concrete within a few days.
The masonry work Ih also gel ting
along well. All the piles that will he
required Jo complele the work
have been delivered. These will be
used chiefly in the construction of pier
No. 5, and also for dolphin, to which a
schooner will he anchored, from which
the masonry of the deep water piers
will he done, A new consignment of
cement to bu, used nt the bridge Is
now on the way from Vancouver.
There is now no doubt that one
and probably two railways will be
building out of Midway as soon as
spring opens, and Midway is destined
to become the commercial and railway
centre of the Boundary country.
Now is the time to buy lots in the
town. They will make you rich. It is
not a speculation, it is an investment.

The Berliuer Gram-o-phone is louder—clearer, simpler and better than any
other talking machine at any price. It sines every kind of eonj*. sacred, comic,
sentimental, patriotic, "Coon" songs, English, French and Scotch Songs, selections from Grand and Comic Operas, plays cake walks, waltes, two-steps, marches,
in fact everything that can be played on any instrument or number of instruments
can lie rcpruluced on the Berliner Gram-o-phone with the wonderful indestructible record discs.
It tells funny stories or repeats a prayer. It can entertain hundreds at one
time in thc largest hall or church, or it can be subdued to suit the smallest room.
The Records are not wax, they are Hard, FUt, IndeatroctlbU Mac*, which
will List 10 years.
The Berliner Gram-o-phone is made in Canada, it is guaranteed for five yean.
