aud sweethearts, and many tears were
shed as the train pulled out, carrying
away tbe recruits to new adventure in
far away Africa. A number of torpedos
bad beeu placed on the rails, and as the
train pulled out amid vociferous cheering, there followed the boom of explosions and tbe fierce clanging ol the engine bell. The train disappeared and
the crowd returned to town, many regretting tbe departure and uncertain
future of the friends that had gone.

The Nelsou Tribune ln its agitation
aboul smallpox in South Baal Kootenay
is guilty uf misrepresentations that it
should make haste to rectify. It says
there are cases, of smallpox in Fernie,
Fort Steele, Cranbrook and Moyie. and
that the country tributary to tfaete towns
are infested. There waa one tone case
in Fernie aud that is now cured and none
others bave appeared. One lode case
has appeared in Moyie that came from
Spokane, and that ia under absolute control. Tbere never haa been a case in
Fort Steele or Cranbrook and no Indications of the disease In any portion of
the district except those named. The
Herald believes io publicity in matters
of this kind, but It protests against in*
jurious misrepresentations. Tbe Tribune should be more careful In its state
uients.       __—^______  "

Galloway presiding. Thirty-nine delegates, three proxies and A. C Plum
merfelt of the Victoria board of trade.
John lioyd of the Vancouver board and
J. F. Bledsoe, representing the Vancouver Citizens' Association, were present. The meeting .was opened by the
reading ot the annual address of President Roderick Robertson, outlining at

products and amendments to the companies act and rivers and streams act.
The urgent necessity for the early construction of a railway from the coast to
Kooteuay was affirmed aud aid to the
same recommended witli specific precautions to control rales aud keeping in
view ultimate ownership by the government. Other railway resolutions were
passed favoring the granting ofa charter for the Kootenay-Central railway
from the Crows Nest road up Kootenay
and Columbia valleys to Golden, aud
railway from Midway or Rock creek,
via tbe west fork of Kettle river aud
Mission valley to Vernon.
A long aud interesting discussion 01:
curred on a motion emphatically de
daring for free tiade in railways and
advocating that all bonafide railway
companies desirous of building railways
in lhe province be permitted to do so.
An amendment which whilst supporting free and unrestricted railway construction through the province asked
that the granting of the charter to the
proposed railway from the international
boundary to the Crows Nest collieries be
delayed, pending a thorough exhaustive
ezauiiuation iuto the effect of tbe construction of that road might have upon
the mining and smelting industries of
tbe province, was defeated on a vote of
thirty against, to five in favor.
Other resolutions favored the passing
of a general railway act increasing the
facilities for the interchange of ma its between Kootenay lake points and the
United Stales via Bonners Perry; bonus
of five dollars per ton on Canadian lead
smelted and refined in Canada; redistribution of legislative seats upou an
equitable basis of area and population

Oue of tbe first changes ordered by
Superintendent Bury was tbe enlarging
of tbe station platform. Tbe work has
been completed, aud it is a great improvement aud one lhat is appreciated
by every one having occasiou to visit the
station wheu a passenger traiu arrives.
A change has taken place at the station.   Mr, Coleman the agent, with his
titlTof assistants, has opened au oflice

found hereafter. Mr. Mallory, the commercial operator, will move into the
room formerly occupied by Mr. Coleman, and hereafter will have charge of
the tickets. This change will prove a
great convenience to tbe business meu

The delegates took a promtu (tit part
in the proceedings, aud were rem, nixed
by those present from the opening of llie
session. Mr. Ryan, one of the Cranhrook delegates, had to return a day
earlier, the other delegates arriving on
Monday afternoon.
All of them speak In flattering terms
of the hospitality ofthe Greenwood people, and ofthe organization of the associated boards. It is the general opinion
that so long as the work is carried along
the present lines, it will tie a potent factor in the upbuilding of the best interests
in British Columbia. They admit of
nothing in the discussions tbat savors of
politics, and'furthermore they have
nothing lo do witb matters that are confined to one particular district, taking
tbe broad view that auch questiions
should be threshed out in tbe particular
district where tbey originate.
The question of free trade in railways
met with a warm reception. It was
freely discussed and when it came to a
vote there were only four or five recorded against the proposition to open British Columbia to any and all railroads.
Messrs. Betitly and Henderson, of Pernie, endeavored to secure the next meeting for Fernie, hut there was a partial
promise that it would go to Kaslo tbe

C. F. R. Officials Spend a Day ia
Arrange  for  Increasing   Facilities
Here and Look Over

Yesterday a number of C. P. R, officials arrived In Cranbrook from the enst.
The party consisted of J. O borne, general superlntendentofthewestern division;
V. R. Mclnnes, general freight agent;
C. ti,. McPherson, general passenger
agent, and H ti. McDonald, assistant
general freight agent. All of the gentlemen have their headquarters in Winnipeg except Mr. McDonald, wbo lives in
Nelsou. Superintendent Bury went np
tbe line and mot the officials, returning
wilh them to Craubrook.
It is becoming customary for the officials of tbe C, P. R. to Like these trips
over the western lines, more frequently.
for the purpose ui keeping In touch with
the people and the growth of the COUU-
During this trip the members have
been paying more than usual attention
to the towns along the Crows Nest division, and bave stopped ofl at nearly
every towu and met the businessmen.
This plan was followed in Ctaubrook,
since the company bad, beside the local
business to look after, plans to discuss
regarding improvements to Ik- made in
theC. P. R. works here, by way of enlargement 10 meet the growing demands
ofa greatly increased traffic.
During tbe afternoon the officials met
the merchants, add also took a walk
over the busiuess and residential portions of tbe towu. In tbe evening they
were entertained at dinner at .Superintendent Bury'S borne, and later met a
number of the busiuess men in social
converse at tbe Craabrook club.
Tbe Herald feels satisfied that tbe
>isit proved a most plt»saut aud profitable one lo tbe officials. They had the
pleasure of seeing a live western town,
meeting the finest lot of business men in
Canada, and swapping yarns witb as
smooth a bunch of fairy tale artists as
can be found in the province. Un the
other hand the people of Craabrook met
men who kuow tbeir business, attend to
their business, and find time to be congenial and companionable wben the busiuess is transacted.
Tbe party left today for Kootenay
Landing, but will return tomorrow and
remain aootber day.

Just as soon as the weather will permit, the people of Cranhrook should
commence their spring cleaning. There
is always bound lo )>>: a vait amount of
filth accumulate during the long winter
that needs attention with the warm
weather of spring. Streets should be
cleaned, alleys should be cleaned, front
and back yards should be cleaned. Let
the work he thorough and after it isonce
done, keep the town clean. (Jul houses
should be given Strict attention and
slops and refuse matter should not be
thrown out on the surface ofthe ground
to fester beneath the rays of a summer
stun to breed germs of typhoid and other
diseases. Straighten up your wood
piles. Clean in front of your store.
Dou't throw waste paper and boxes in

each resident will work wonders in the
appearance of the town. Stranger**
notice the condition of a place and it
does not give them n very favorable impression when streets and alleys look

The Outlook of Victoria Is makings

British Columbia. The editor, in a
series of ankles, is producing arguments that are appalling io ibe uninitiated, since thev conclusively demon
atrate what The Herald has always
maintained, that Chinese and .lipanese
labor is today the greatest menace to
the future prosperity of British Columbia.
Following are some Interesting tig-
nres on the employment ol Chinese ln
the city of Victoria, showing the vast
sums paid out each year to a class that
does nothing to promote tbe best Interests ol the community In which they

Total $548,300
The above sum, annually lost,
amounts to $31,08 per head for every
man. woman and child in Victoria, or
$108 40 for each family. It would pay
Interest at four per cent on $13,555,000.
In tbe lumbering business, Including
Shawnlgan aud Cut iiulnus, 353 Chinamen are employed, at from $1 35 to
Sl :.n [>cr ilay. This does not take lu
those engaged In logging, road making,
etc. The wages paid amount to $104,*
ooo annually.
Brick making employs ill Chinese,
wbo draw wages amonntlnd to $33,200
per year.
It is estimated tbat in private families, boarding houses, lodging houses,
hotels, restaurants, saloons, barber
shops, etc., In the city, from r>oo to 000
Chfnam-20 work as domestic servants,
rooks, dishwashers, etc , at from ten to
$75 per month. Taking the smaller
figure, and estimating the average rate
ot wages paid at $K< per month, the
yearly drain through this leak Is$00.000.
$543,300 per year—probably more,
and certainly not less—Is the price this
city Is paying for the pleasnre of John
Chinaman's company, and there are
several industries still to bear from.
Tbese ligures will give an Idea of the
hold the Orientals have on the coast
cities, and those who live ln tbe interior know they are gradually gaining
ground. If the work done by Chinamen In Victoria was performed by
white people, Victoria today would be
a thousand fold more prosperous. It
would vastly increase the revenues of
every mau engaged In business In the
town. Tne Chinaman is like the sponge,
he absorbs, hut he gives up nothing.
He Is of no benefit to a town in which
be lives. He does not as-simulate with
the people. He takes no Interest in the
progress of tbe community. What he
gets be holds until It Is time for him to
return to China to spend tbe balance of
bis days.
He takes the place of white labor and
gives nothing in return. Kvery white
person who labors, spends tbe money
In tbe community. If there were
greater opportunities for situations a

There nre few sentimental allusions
in uny of the reports which emanate
from the government printing office In
Washington under authority of the
commissioner of labor. It mny be no
surprise, therefore, to mnny to know
that the eleventh mutual report ofthe
commissioner of labor contains in tubulated form, reduced to exact percentages, a statement showing tlu'occupations of divorced women.
The bureau of the statistical expert in
charge of tabulation divides the female
population of the United States often
years or upward Into four general
classes. First there ure the married,
who number 13,10 per cent. Then there
an- the widow.**, who number 16.10 per
eent. Third is the class of the "aingli
and unknown;" these number 09.W4 per
cent. Finally there are the divorced,
who constitute nine-tenths of one per
cent, of the female population of ten
yeurs of age or over tn the I'uited Stntes,
and they lire distributed throughout
various occupations, which the statistical experts bave endeavored to state
wiih iindeviiiting exactness. Of the
total number of divorced women employed, it seems that .21 per cent, are
bookbinders, .Us arc shoemakers and
.CO are corset makers. A much smaller
proportion, .42, are saleswomen, while
60 are telegraph and telephone operators. Stenographers and typewriters
Hake up .07 per cent., and .SH are mill
The official statisticians at Washing-
on took neither to the right nor t.o thp
eft in their tabulation and it need bp
io surprise, therefore, to know Unit
1,23 of the divorced women of the United
States who have any business occupation nre merchants, lot are carpet makers, and .40 are hal nnd cap makers.
Milliners come under a separate division, their percentage of divorced
women being 1,38, Of seamstresses
there are 1.35, and of clerks and copy tats
.51. Moreover, .20 are bosmnkers, ,68
printers, ..11 cigarette and tobacco makers, .04 in thc confectionery business,
1,43 dressmakers, .4fi paper mill operators, and .1,1 in silk mills.
The professions have a considerable
number of divorced women, 1.24 being
music teachers and 1,1-9 teachers of art.
There are 3,33 per cent, described as
hotel, restaurant and saloon keepers
bihI barkeepers and a somewhat larger
proportion iw hoarding or lodging house
keepers;   1,62   as   laundresses;   1.8(1 ns
nurses, and ..si na agricultural laborers.
In one particular, however, lhc report
nf the commissioner of labor seems to
be pretty nearly exact, for :i.2Ci of the
total number of divorced women are
pill down as agents and it is a mat ter nf
very general observation that divorced
women make excellent agents where
ppralstence and volubility nre required.

One nf ihe suggest Ions announced for
the protection of the teals in northern
waters, which appears to be entirely
practicable, Is that proposed by President Jordan, of the Leland Stanford,
dr., university, of California, who advocates ihnt the government brand nil
female seals found in our waters, thus
destroying the skin for commercial purposes, and, consequently, offering no Inducement lo the .sealer to kill such
branded animals
President Jordan has just relurned
from Uie Prihyloff Islands with the
news that the revenue cutter Hush has
Inaugurated! the scheme. The branding
is effected by means of nu electrical device, whieh is both convenient and effective. Pr. Jordan says, in regard to
this branding process, that it is perfectly feasible to brand seals, and that
the brand will remain permanently, as
it dues on a horse or eow. One man can
brand female seal pups at the rate of
1,000 a day.
The brand will grow with the outer
growth of the animal. The outer, or
wnter hair, will hide it to some extent,
hut the part of the skin on whieh it up-
pears iK permanently spotted for ihe
furrier's purpose, ns. in the course nf
preparation for market, all the longer
or wnter hair ia removed. The adult
seals ean also be branded without injury, but they are not so easily handled,
It has heen Asserted that handling the

appears to be no foundation for the
statement, an the animals do not mind

The jury which mnde the awards ln !

exposition had 30,000 brands of wine j
to inste. It would seem that such a
task would be enough to paralyse the
nerves of every man's palate aud that,
moreover, the wine tasters would have
somo difficult; lu getting home after
tlicir dny's work. These useful members of ft reputable profession, however, know tlicir busiuess far too well
to be led Into any mistakes of that
kind. It is estimated that not a quart
of wine was swallowed by the entire
committee while eugaged Id tho testing. If they drank much, they wnuld
soon lose their sense of taste.
When tenting wines, these meu take
but a small mouthful of the sample,
let It slip back to Whero the taste nerve
is nud then spit it out Aftor trying
three or four samples the taster will

Long enough before I, a lieutenant of
Infantry, made my first trip across the
great Staked plains of Texas as an escort to n couple of civil engineers I had
heard of the death bird of the desert.
No living man had ever seen It. but
there were plenty who had hoard its
notes, and its notes always meant danger. One might travel to and fro on
tbe Staked plains for a year nnd never
see a bird of any sort except about their
edges. The only living things to be
met with nre serpents, lizards, scorpions and skulking wolves. The ar Illness
and desolation are too mueh even for
the buzzards.
The death bird, so the legend went,
appeared only at night, snd then no
man saw him. He came to give warning. His notes were peculiar, and no
hunter could Imitate him, but one hearing them In the silence of tho night nnd
the desert could make no mistake. Hefore mnking the trip nn old hunter said
to me:
"There Is but one danger to look out
for—the Apaches. They may follow
you clear ncross the desert. Thoy
will not nttnek you by daylight, but at
night, without your having seen a sign
of them, they will creep upon you as
softly ss serpents and span* none. Listen for the notes of the deyth bird, nnd
when vou hear them take instant warn
There were Hi of us tn the party
Fourteen soldiers woiv supposed to
constitute a force able to take cure ot
Itself anywhere. There was more nns
iety as to our water and rations than
as to the Indians who might dog om
footsteps. It was midsummer, ami Uu*
heat on that grent surface of sand ami
I whispered:
"That's a danger cry, or I never
heard one. I tell you we ore menaced
by some great peril!"
Thrice the death bird called its notes,
ind then all was silence as before. A
soldier was sent creeping away to call
In the sentinels. A few rods to the
north of us, ns we tind noticed when
going Inlo camp, the sands had been
toyed with hy some strung gale until
the rtdges almost formed a natural
fort With the greatest care and In tbe
deepest silence we left tents and bng
gage, and, taking nothing but our water bottles nnd muskets, we crept out
of camp to Uie north nnd by and by
reached the fort. It was so dark tlmt
men bud to be felt for Instead of spoken to, but nt tlie end of half nn hour
we lay In line with our muskets resting
on a sand ridge nnd pointing townrd
camp. One could tell by the reeling In
the air that the storm would soon
break and that the tlrst break would be
-a vivid flash of llghtulog. Tbe men
were instructed to ttre with the Hash lit
case it revealed Indians nbout,
At last, when we were all in n tremble with anxiety, the flush came. For a
few seconds It wns as if a great search-
i light hnd fallen upon the desert. It
was so blinding that every eye was
closed for a second. When opeued,
they behold a band of 20 Apaches uu
hands nnd knees withiu 25 feet of the
tents. A volley was tired straight Into
their faces nud a second as another
Hash showed a few in retreat, and
then wo lay there in the pouring rain
till daylight came. There had been In
the band, as near ns we could llguie it,
21 Indians. We had tired without aim,
nnd the destruction wrought was due
to luck or accident, hut there were 10
redsltlns lying dead on the sands
nrouud Uie camp. Among these were a
full chief, n subclilet' ami live or six
noted warriors. Uur volleys bad accomplished more than a year's campaigning witli 000 soldiers Indeed
they brought peace for two years. Said
one ot tbo survivors to mo afterward:
"We had planned to kill the entire
lot of you. We heard the notes of the
death bird nnd knew you would hear
them also, but we didn't believe you
would understand the warning. Had
you not understood aud moved away
not a man of you would have escaped."
Kor many days subsequently—aye,
for many mouths and yenrs—ns 1 was
posted along the desert or journeyed

I was sitting In the door of my tent
an hour after midnight, wondering
how booh the storm would break, when
there came to me from a point uot far

They sounded a bit like tbe cull or n

were like words instead of notes. They
were soft and clear, nud from the very

From the Enterprise, Brldgewater, N.S,
Mr. 0. D. Johnson la about 38 years
old, a gold miner by occupation, Is

Air. Juhnsou chanced in be in Porter's drug store, in Drldgowater,
when a case of Ur, Williams' Pink
Pills was boing opened, ami lie remarked to tho clerk ; "I saw ihu
time when a dozen boxes of those
pills were uf mure value to mo limn
tho best gold mine in the country."
A reporter nf tin* Enterprise happened to heur Mr. Johnson's rather
start ling remark und asked why
he spoke -so highly of tho pills,
Ah*. Johnson's statement was as fid-
lows: "About four yeurs ago I was
attacked with la grippe which kept
ine from Work ubout three weeks. I
(lid nut have It very lund apparently, but it left mo weak nil tho same.
AnyltOW. afler losing three weeks I
concluded to go to work again. The
mine I was working Iu was making
a good deal of utter ami 1 got wet
the lirst day. That night the old
trouble came back, witli lln* addition
of a severe cold. I managed to get
rid of the cold, bul the wholo force
of tho disease settled in my sLomach,
kidneys nud Joints, mid boils broke
out on my body uud limbs. Mj buck
wus su weak I could scarcely stand
alone, while food iu every form distressed me, and 1 bccuiiii* su nervous
that any unusual noise wuuld overcome ine. 1 tried several sorts of
medicine, but. none seemed iu do any
good. I wont to see a doctor. His
medicine helped nu' ut lirst. but afler
a short time lost iis effect, lie then
changed tin* inedieine, Imt with no
hotter result. About this time a
clergyman who culled al tho house
advised ino to try Ur. Williams' I'ink
Pills. I got a box aud used them,
but they did not materially benefit
me. I had been now some weeks iillo
und was feeling desperate, A friend
strongly advised mc lo go to a hospital for treatment und I had just
about decided to do sn when nn
acquaintance learning I luul taken
but one bux of tlie pills suggested
tliat 1 sliaald try three boxes moro
before giving them up. Tho matter
of money decided me on trying tho
pills again. I got three boxes and
when used I wus quite a bit improved, could eat light, nutritious food,
slept better, and felt noticeably
stronger. But 1 was still an unwell
man. As the pills were doing a good
work, however, 1 sent for eight boxes
more. 1 continued using them till
all were gone, wlicu I felt that I wus
restored to health. All my stomach
trouble hud disappeared, I was fully
as floshy as before tbo lirst attack of
la grippe, my nerves were solid as
over, antl I knew that work would
givo strength lo my muscles. So, after about six months, I wenl to
work ugain and have not had a sick
day since. One dozen boxes of Ur.
Williams' Pink Tills saved my lifo
and gave mc better health since than
I bad before, und that is why I said
they were worth more to me than
any gold mine, for all that a man lias
he will give for bis life."

It is a well-e.stalilistied fact thnt a
town bui rounded byu district containing
large deposits of coal—iu thin ease the
largest known to the world—gold, copper, silver and lend, need not worry for
generations to tome regarding itB financial stability or the prosperity of its
merchants or artisans, capitalists or agriculturists, professional men or laborers. The history of the new world
shows that the cities of great mining districts are the must prosperous and contain more well-to-do people than thorn?
of other classes.
That Beautiful Cranbrook is a great
mining center is alreinly a faet ho well

Nor is the mining interest the only

"What is greatuess? We are accustomed to call great those exceptional beings upon Jwhotn heaven bus bestowed
some of its choicest gifts, who astonish
and dazzle the world by the splendor of
faculties phenomenally developed, even
when these faculties are much marred
by defects and weakness, which make
them nugatory of good; but this is not,
in my estimation at least, Ihe highest
conception of greatness. The equipose
of a well balanced mind, the equilibrium
of faculties well and evenly ordered, the
luminous insight of a calm judgment,
are gifts which are as rarely found in one
human being as tbe possession of on t.
dazzling though less solid qualities, and
when these high qualities are found in a
ruler of men, combined with purity of
soul, kindness of heart, generosity of
disposition, elevation of purpose and devotion to duty, this is what seems lo me
to be the highest conception of greatness, greatness which will be abundantly productive of hap, iness and glory
to the people under such a sovereign; and
it' I mistake not, such was the character
of Queen Victoria, and such wete the
results of her rule"

and came to British Columbia to grow
wealthy. He wore a shirt this trip that
was a startling symphony in colors.

bnve paled into sombre colors beside it-
Loud? It made more noise than a (ire
alarm and a Chinese baud combined,
and .snow on the street turned to run-

was surely the warmest proposition in

Big Enterprise for Moyie.
From .Mni-.li' Leader.
A sawmill with the capacity of 35,000
feet of lumber per day uud one which
will give employment to hetweeu 75 and
100 men, is the latest euterpii.se which
is likely to be added to the already prosperous town of Moyie.
W. 11 and Sam Grant, brothet and
uncle of Malcolm Grant, of the llrm of
Grant & Sheady, have been in Moyie
several days from their home iu Fari-
bauHt Minnesota. They are practical
lumber and sawmill men, and inspected
the big timber limits on the north side
of the upper lake with a view of securing
same and erecting a mill near town.
They estimate that ihere ia nearly one
hundred aud twenty-five million feet of
first class timber in tbia tract. The
erecting of a $7,000 sawmill near town te
now almost an absolute certainty.
Full particulars will be given In the
Leader next week.

A Ptayali'lnn** View •»■ to the Proper
Time to Indulge.
A physician, who ia himself a wheelman of several years' experience aud
who has also devoted great attention
to other athletlos, lays down tliis general proposition: "Never take a cold
bath when you are tired." He points
out that Uie greater the exercise the
more poisonous waste material is created, and that a cold bath doe* not assist the skin in getting* rid of this product, whereas a warm hath does. Tha
doctor adds:
"Wben you take a eold bath you de
pend upou the heart to bring about pe*
action. If tins heart be already tired
by the loug ride it may not be atronif
enough to bring about reaction, and
the blood and Its waste material may
not be brought to the surface. later-
nal -congestions may follow, and, aa I
have Been in two ciwes, death may ensue. It matters not how hot you may
be, how mueh you may be perspiring;
the cold bath is harmless provided always the heart, be not tired. A almple
rule for the bicyclist, whereby he may
know whether the heart bo tired is
simply to count the pulae, having in a
previous -quiescent state ascertained
what bU individual pulse rate per min
ute is. When, after a long ride, his
pulse rate Is normal he may with safety use the eold batb. He -should, tihc-re-
fnr-c, rest after a tiresome Journey until the pulse is normal or thereabouts,
Bay eveu ten beats jter minute faster
than normal, or what hi far better, get
into a tepid hath, one neither very hot
nor very cold. When he has remained
in the warm water long enough for the
pulae rate to Im*-. about norma], hn caa
Uien, with jwrfect -safety, plunge lu-to
cold water, and these two proeedure.i
form the Ideal wny of using water 00
the surface after fatigue."
