belief has grown almost to tlie ro-
speclabilltj of establtslmd laet wiih-
in t-he past   two weeks.
William Whyte, a prominent Ci
mvdlan Paclllc ulllelni, is quoted hel
as saying that Hie Canadian Paoil

tin- most emphasised s that the

capable of proof, the results to Spokane anil ultimately lo points wesi,

This is tin- view laken by a supporter nl (lie Canadian Pacific:
"Tlm Canadian Pacific can go into
the business at Spukane and can cnl
the rates from St. Paul, if H likes,
inure 1'liitn 35 per cent, and still
make 'money.     On  the olbcr    hand,
if it is decided t atulnlu t-he rait**
on ilu- Hill level, and did sn. ils net
earnings on lids through business
would be immense, in either case,
ilie Canadian Paeilie would have a
ureal advantage, because, If Mr. Hill
met tho mi rates on a permanent
Irasis to (lie intermediate points on
his line and the points beyond, The
Canadian Paeilie, on the contrary,
docs not touch any important American iity between the two terminals."
Mr. IHU, on Uio contrary, appear.
in have forgotten the Canadian Pacini' in tlie sheer delight ol making
Ureal Northern stock do fancy
stunts in llie Wall Street market
He still claims that if Uie railroads
get down to (Ireat Northern rales
they will all go broke long before
Ihey do any harm to him.
That is true so far as the Amor
ran lines are concerned, but il will
lake the railroad men of the United
States more than a generation to
forget the lesson the C, P. It. gave
in ilu- transcontinental freight bureau when it dropped a transport line
into tlie Golden Gate and smashed
Uie transcontinental pool into tin
flattest kind of a fizzle.
Tlie Canadian Pacific is powerful
ff it pushes its lines through Spok

If it links up with I lair imam and the

there will be just as much troubh
for it would moan quite a bit to Hie

DAN ALTON TALKS TO A PAPER
IN THAT COUNTRY,
I>.ui Alton, wbo Is travelling for a
Vancouvei miudrn pipe house, bus
been iii New Zealand ami Australia
ilu- past lew months. Last uum tti
Ire was iu Wellington, Now Zealand,
and gave out tin' tallowing to the
Times ol that uity;
Among visitors io WoUington at
present is Mr, it. Alton, representing
tin* Canadian Pipe Company, LU.,
nf Vancouver, ltniisli I'uluiiiliui, wbo
i* staying at the Empire hotel. Tbe

Iftle objccl nf Mr. Alton's visit to
New Zealand is uonneoted with liis
company's tendering Ior the projected waterworks system at Hotorua.
The govern ment, recognising t-he special suitability of wooden pipes fur
ihal wmk, has resolved Lu adopt
them, and two Canadian linns—llie
1'ijre Company, of Vancouver, and
anoUwr—aro understood to be tendering.
These pipes, which are an American
invention, are Iielng largely adopted
in Uu- United Slates and Canada,
where, in addition to theii other advantages, tliey are valued because ol
the fact that they arc not liable to
hurst, during the severe frosts prevalent in ihe northern districts. They
are not only suitable for new water
works, but when extensions are made
l-hey ean he profitably used in con-
junction with the Iron piping already
[.i-nl. The city uf Vancouver lias
made use of these pipes lur ils wat
erwurks. The pipes can be made to
withstand a pressure as high as 285
pounds tit the square inch. While
the particular purpose of Mr. Alton's visit is, as stated, connected
with the Hotorua waterworks, Intends seeing mure of New Zealand
and Australia, and bringing the merits ol Mie pipes under the notice ot
the various autltorlties. lie has
hopes that his company will gel sufficient supporl to Induce it to establish a blanch of ils business here.
In the course <>f conversation wltb
a representative of tl New Zealand Times," Mr, Alum had something of interest to say on the subject of tlie prospects ol trade between ibis country and Canada. He
noted with pleasure the Intimation
made lit our issue of yesterday to tire
ei'i.et thai a line of cargo steamers
between the Dominion and New Zealand ports, subsidized by tire respective governments, is to start running
next month. He is satisfied that,
wilh direct steamers and low
freights, a large trade may be developed between the two countries.
Prom his observation since Ire has
been tn New Zealand, he is convinced
thai we have many articles (bat we
can profitably exclmnge with Canada.
To ensure this development, how-
over, tariff revision Is necessary, tor
Mime articles are sn heavily taxed
thai trade would be iinieinuneraiive.

Montreal, Fob, 8—This afternoon
Sir Thomas Shauglmossy niailc the
lollowlng statement to the press:
"The Official Gazette ol Saturday
will contain a notice ot a special

Innii Hie present authorized amount
ot one lmii'tred and ten million dollars, has already been issiusl, to one
hundred and fitly million dollars.
"In view ol tlie greal Increase in
the company's business and ils continued expansion, It is desirable tliat
immediate provision be made lot
still further increasing the twill-ties
oi the company on every section ot
its system. The directors have,
therefore, decided, subject to the approval ot tlie shareholders, at Uie

HEALTH AND DISEASE.
IN
The ment Iiiii ol   sulphur will recall
, many   ol ns the early days when
it* mothers and grandmothers gave
our  daily dose of   sulphur    aud
olasses every spring and fall.
lt was the universal spring and

remedy was not withmit merit.
Tlie idea was good, but the remedy
was crude and unpalatable, nud a
large quantity had to lie taken tn get
any effect.
Nowadays wc got all the licncflcial

cenl rated form, so that a single
grain is tar more effective than a
tablespoonfitl of the crude sulphur.
NOT TAKING CHANCES,
There is a clever young phys-ioian
in Philadelphia who has never been
able to smoke a cigar. ".Iust one
poisons me," says the youlhlul doctor.
Recently tlie doctor was Invited to
a large dinner party given by a New

Uie repast, when the women bad lett
tbo table, cigars were accepted by
all the men except the physician
Irom Philadelphia. Seeing Ids Irieml
refuse the cigar, Uie host in astonishment exclaimed:
"What, not smoking. Why, my
dear fellow, you lose hull your dinner!"
Yes, I    know I do,"   meekly re-

ONE   VERSION UV   THK KAIEN
ISLAND DEAL.
(Vancouver World.)
Head    this and     draw your     own
conclusions.
I.arseu,
Bodwell,
MfltWrews, and
Anderson
were iu the secret of the Kaien Island grant, while tlie public had not
the advantage of the 'information
designedly kept secret hy ibe government (tor twenty months) and
these parties were able to make locations of adjacent tracts Ior speculative purposes. Messrs. Bodwell,
Anderson anil Mat-thews are liberals.
Mr. Larson is a foreigner-—a Swedish-American, very rich, very selfish
and very speculative. He was
the conspiracy from the lirst, supplied the money and the steamer for
explorations and surveys, made his
own 'bargain with the government
and the railway, and paid Anderson
and the surveyors for lheir services.
Kor twenty months Mr. Bodwoll kept
tho secret agreement iu bis pocket,
only he, his partners named above
and the "coiiservative" government
being aware of its existence. This
agreement proposed to deliver lo the
Grand Trunk Paolflu company 10,01111
acres of reserved land, at Kaieii island, for terminal purposes, at the
rate of one dollar an acre. Ul
course, Mr. Larsen, the foreigner,
who was Uie kingpin, the banker,
the "boss" of the whole out tit, acted witn profuse generosity toward
the railway company after he had
secured a pledge from the "conservative" -government tliat he would he
allowed to secure land adjacent lo
the new towns-ite at the going price
of one dollar an acre. Certainly, as
explained by Mr. Bodwell, he had no
complaint coming. He got hack his
money and the government saw lhat
■he was conipeusaled for his "generous" surrender ot the lU.UoO acres
by the practical gift of adjacent
lands which were reserved from every
one but the foreigner and his grit
Iriends. Dxaminc the details of
this transaction for a moment. The
chief commissioner, a dyed-in-Uie-
wooi conservative (so deeply dyed
that he would not walk 011 the same
side of Mie street with a liberal ii
he could help it, or sit in the same
room wiiii a grit withuiit opening
the windows (or the purpi>se of
fumigati-mi)-—-lliis lory commissioner,
who never could see any good iu a
grit anyhow, conspires with a grit
lawyer, two grit politicians and a
foreigner to wrench from lbe public
domain 10,000 acres of crown lauds
and signs a secret agreement Willi
the grit lawyer that eiilil-ltd Wm,
the two grit polilii-iaus and tlio
foreigner to dispose of the laud to
the railway company—to iraflic with
il at one dollar an acre, which he
was well paid tor from the public
cliest (nr doing himself. At the
time when the commissioner made
the   agrecim-nt   and    delivered    his
mini!; feature—no loophole through
which they can crawl. The Prior
government lost tlieir (reads for
much less. The scandal, like the
snowball, grows as ii is rolled along.
The government has given away $3,-
500,000 worth of public lands fur
$111,(101). Thai is the long and shall
of the whole scandal.

Prince Arl-liur of Coniiaughl, when

Calgary on his way Itoine, says a
writer in Vhe Calgary Alherlan. 1
suppose titat. tbe usual nonsens cal
practice of overwhelming distinguished utrangers wilh gusiiy and l^mi-
bastic addresses of welcome will be
adopted on this occasion. The mayor will probably call a secret mooting ot the council; an elaborate address firii of empty phrases ami
valueless expressions of good-will and
loyally will In- drawn up, Ihe mayor,
surrounded by ihe flower ami chivalry
of Caigary, will whoo! it oh when the
prince arrives; and t-he prince will
Ihrow il lo lim aide-de-camp and tor-
get all a-boul it. Surely, in ' Ibis
iweiiHH'h century, it is time suob an
idiotic practice was dropped for ever.
The King 1ms bad thousands of these
aifolr-esses presented to him in the
course of his career, and il is all
open secret thai his librarian was
receni'ly ordered to destroy a large
number of Ihem, iu owlor lo make
room for an extensive addition to
tlie library. The Calgary address,
if one is presented, will probably
share tlie same fate, or else the
prince will light his cigarette witli
it as he enters Regina.

Absolutely white flour makes the most
beautiful white bread—the kind we all like.
Hut white bread is not necessarily pure
because it is white. To be pure it must be
made from purified  Hour.
'Ihere is only one method of making
fli ur absolutely pure, and that is by elcc-
tric it v. No impurity can withstand the
searching, purifying work of this electrical
process.
The electrical method is employed by
every big mill ill tht United States.
In Canada the only flour purified by
electricity is
Royal Household Flour
therefore  it is the only flour   that can be
considered as absolutely pure.
Say " Ogilvie's Royal Household " to
your grocer—he'll do the rest.

Below stairs, among Uie kitchen
pots and pans, the lord steward
holds sway over tlw King's household. Lord llawksburv has jusl
!«vn given lhat job by the new
premier, displacing thai staunch
conseivat-ire nobleman, the Karl of
Pembroke. The pay is Uw same as
that n[ Un lord chamberlain—$10,00(1
a  wmi.        Ass. i dated   with  the     lord
steward in ihe management of the
depart men! is tlie treasurer of the

appointees and for that reason Vis-

Tlw    lord    slcw.iid,   lhe    treasurer
.iml complroller and two oi three
permanent liotiseltold officials comprise ihat mysterious Institution
known as Hie t I ..f green   cloth,

payroll, which was onco uver jfiiiu,-

which $09,000 represents llm amount
pahl domestic servants, Il derives
its names from ihe fael ihat lis
members, when ihey condescend    lo
make a pri'liiicc u[ earning lheir salaries, sit around u table covered
wiih green cloth.
By way nf living up Iu ils name,
the board has a green seal. It has
a kingdom of ils own extending 2U0
yards in every direction from Buckingham Palace. Within this little
kingdom-'the verge as it is known
round the green table cloth—Lhc
board bus power to punish a!! who
break tlie peace, ami it has a limited power, too, to save any of the
King's servants Trom arrest. No
servant of his majesty can lie ar-
resled for debt without a warrant
signed at the green table. Ami no
tradesman ean display that highly
prized document which proclaims him
a purveyor ot lollypops, eggs, bacon,
or anything else to his majesty unless it hears tlie green seal and signature of tlw lord steward. The
King's cooks and the King's "gen-
tolmcn of the cellar" are iu    tbe lord
steward's department, bul fortunately fm the satisfaction of his majesty's epicurean tastes their berths are
lint included among the spoils nf office.
There is a curious division of labor
Ih'1 ween tlw lord chamberlain's and
the lord steward's departments, when
ttie Kim; has bis annual spring house
cleaning, li is the hud chamberlain
wlm is responsible for the beating
and shaking nf bis majesty's carpets,
while the lord steward is responsible
for Urc proper cleaning of the royal
chimneys. Wlien it is stated that
there are no less limn 2,600 of them,
it might be Interred that the lord
steward really has a still hit of work
iii taekle occasionally. But as a
matter of fact he never coneerns
himself with the chimneys or anything else suggestive of labor with
which his department is nominally
saddled. It is a permanent official,
tlw master of tbe household, who
bosses all tlw work that has lo be
done and gets $5,7!iO a year tor it.
Thv lord steward simply drops round
on state occasions in a gorgeous uniform, pockets his $10,bou a year and
rejoices that some soft snaps are
s-iill reserved Ior the nobility.
Another sinecure, lho best paying of the lot, is that uf master of
the horse, which has been bestowed
mi the Earl of Seflon, who takes
over Ihe job from the Duke of port-
land. The latter, however, is too
rich to miss the $12,film a year,
which is lhe salary of the office.
Nominally the master of tlie horse
looks after Ute royal "mows"—as
livery stables are called here—and
lhe various equipages of his majesty.
But it is doubtful if lie ever crosses
tim threshold of tlw King's stables;
anyhow, his pay would never In
docked if lw didn't, Ile is only required tn turn up on stale occasions, At hig functions requiring
lhc King's presence his majesty is
under the charge of tlw lord chamberlain until he leaves the palace
dour. From that moment his sacred
person is In the care of tlw master
of llw horse until thc place of ceremonial is reached, wlnn thc earl
marshal -becomes responsible for
him.
The master of the huckhounds is
another dead easy IvilJet which is
uunvlnred among the loaves and
fishes of office. It pays $7,600
year and can In lield only hy a peer
or the heir to a peerage. Similar
salaries are also paid Lo the captain of the gentleman-at-arms and
the captain of the yocmen of tho
guard—the two bodies which' are sup-
I posed to do wlmt Scotland yard
really does-—guard tlw person of the
King at big royal shows. The captains are shifted in arcoidancc with
their politics when there Is a change
of administration, but it is only
members of the aristocracy who can
fill tin posts.
Some queer billets    exist, outside
the royal household, which arc in-
oludcd among tlie spoils of olliee.
Ot ihese the positions held hy tbe
junior lords of the treasury afford
the besl illustrations of the peculiarities sanctioned by the Brii-
tsh system ol party government.
There are three junior lords, uud
they may or may not he real lords
though under a lory admiuisiration
they are usually sons of peers. They
arc paid $5,0WI a year each for work
that they don't do, and noLiiing fur
tlw work that they do do. Apart
from ttteir initiatory function all
■Uiat they have to do with the ireus-
ury is lo draw their salaries. Wiwn
appointed they betake themselves to
a certain room in the building where
tlw business of the treasury is carried on and scat themselves at a
table there. Suddenly au official,
stalely and impressive in demeanor,
opens tlw door but advances no further than the threshold. "Will youi
lordships," he solemnly asks, "allow
your secretary to enter'.'" At this
Uiey all bow and in walks lhe financial secretary of Uw treasury. The
official who spoke before now says:
"Will your lordships allow your secretary to lake a seat at the table?'
Again they all gravely incline their
lwads and the financial secretary
lakes his seat. With that Uw three
lords of tlw treasury vanish and are
seen in Uw place no more. Yet mention of ilwm is constantly made iu
all official documents, as for uxampli
"1 am directed lo inform ynu thaL
my lords do not see lheir way," ele.
Tlw financial secretary who comports himself so humbly is really
somebody al lhe treasury, and docs
work there lor bis salary of $10,000
a year. Ile i.s the right band man
of tlw chancellor of the exchequer in
lhe administration of bis department.
The work which Uw junior lords
do for which they get no pay consists in assisting the chief whip lu
muster the followers ul lhe government when important divisions
take place and seeing to it that they
vote straight, In various other
ways, too, Ihey are expected to help
their party iu parliament ainl at
elections.
The transfer ot tlw government
from one politieal party to llw ot
er involves no such clean sweep o(
oflice holders as takes place when
there is a change in tlw federal government iu America or Canada. ■>-.
with tlw outgoing of one party
and the incoming of another, there
■are sixty-two offices which change
■hands, their aggregate salaries
amounting to Uw substantial sum of
$792,905. Therefore, tlw substilu
tion of Sir Henry Campbell-Banner
•man for Arthur Baltour, as premier,
means that sixty-two men, ot great-
Ier or less distinction, have had that
sum added to their annual incomes
and another sixty-twu have tost it.
JOHN MITCHELL, LABOR LEADER.
Indianapolis, Ind., l*Vb. d.—Julm
Mitchell, president of thc United
Mine Workers of America, the members uf which organization threaten
lo go on a strike on April 1, aod
who wbl lead the miners' forces ii
Ihey clash     with Lhe eoal operalutb,
directed the sLiikes uf the anthracite
miners in 1000 and 1002,
Mitchell is d"i yeais uf a&c, is an
entirely self made product. He was
horn iu the coal regions uf central
Illinois, and worked in Llie mines as
a mere boy. Jusl before he became
ot age he stalled uul lu see a liLile
of thc wurhl and went wesL, travelling through the milling country ui
New Mexico, Aii/.una and Colorado,
lie had bis pick and slrovel for a
passport and earned his way by work
in the mines.
Finally be tired oi this life ami returned Lo Illinois and mail iol an.l
SOtlflod duwn in his native lown. He
was still a miner nf sufL cual and as
such he became affiliated with the
union. He attended the meetings nt
tlw local branch uf ihe union, became an inlluciico in its deliberations,
and iu lime was elected in olllco in
Llw union, lie was iiiclllgcnt and
faithful, and his efficiency brought
tiiiii promotion,   steady and regular,
unlit!      lie Blood    al   llie  head  ul   lhe
soil coal organIzalion.     Then began
Uie Invasion ol lho anthracite fields.

Tins si like was merely a nm
nuisance in force, It was tint ii
tended as a decisive engagement, Its
clone left lhe organization with a.i
tied prestige, and something subslan
Hal in offer the men as inducement
t-o join ami prepare for the war ii
be waged laid. Then tlnro wen
two years uf (urihci preparation
wh.n unions weie strengthened, discipline  was  pel felled,  and   lhe  W'.ilk-
uicii weie drilled everlastingly in tho
lesson ul "no violence," Krom first
to last was the text uf Mitchell's
speech. He warned and exhorted
the men, that, as tbey Itopcd fur success, lo refrain frum all forms ut
violence and lu compel their fellows
to do the same.
Mitchell is imt convivial. He leads
a perfectly moral life. lie has not
fallen into lhe temptations of dema-
goguery; Iw does not say indiscreet
or foolish things. He has not permit-led himself to become pulled up
with vanity, whieh would bave been
his undoing; for all labor leaders aro
surrounded with jealous and ambitious lieutenants, who will forgive
anything sooner than vanity.
There is something priestly in
Mitchell's look; and there is mueh of
the Jesuitical in bis character. II
is a very serious proposition. He
does not smile or joke often. He is
kind,  mild spoken and  reticent.   Uo
is never tu   bt if    In

his word like   tl of Egypt.
