The only Pure Cream of Tartar Powder.���No Ammonia; No Alum.
Dsed in Millions of Homes���40 Years the Standard
London, Feb. 27.���Inquiries made by
representatives of the United Press tend to
confirm the report that Mr. Gladstone's
resignation is inevitable within a few weeks.
Since Mr. Gladstone's return from Biarritz,
the cataract whioh has been forming in his
eye, has ripened fast, and Dr's. Bond, Grainger and other physicians whom he has consulted, consider an early operation advisable.
The treatment will necessarily involve
seclusion in a darkened room for a long
time, probably three months, with complete Cessation of all work attended by
brain strain or wony- Ur. Gladstone's colleagues wish him to postpone hia
resignation ot the Premiership until the
latest possible moment and to keep a sinecure seat in the Cabinet, such as taking the
office of Lord Privy Seal. Liberals are divided in opinion as to whether Mr. Gladstone's retirement will be temporary or
permanent. Mr. Gladstone himself freely
tells his friends that his hearing is going
with bis eyesight. His health otherwise,
however, is still vigorous. His voice in last
night's debate in the House of Commons,
was full and clear and hia bearing was upright and firm. The Radicals, who believe
him an obstacle to the reform of the House
of Lords, hold that Mr. Gladstone's withdrawal from the Ministry will be final. The
Edinburgh Evening News, io commencing
upon the report that Mr. Gladstone has re
signed and that he will recommend Lord
Rosebery as his successor, recalls
speech made by Mr. Gladstone at Manchester, on June 18th, in which he said:
"Lord Rosebery ia a man of whom you will
hear more than you have yet heard. In him
ihe Liberal parly see a man of the future."
The same journal adds: "As Lord Rosebery haa been for many years an advocate of
ending, under the guise of mending, the
House of Lords, even Radioal incorruptibles
ought to give him loyal support. Liberals
generally muat ask whether under Lord
Rosebery or Sir William Harcourt, the
party could go before the country with a
chance of success. There can hardly be two
opinions.    Lord Rosebery is the man."
The Standard (Conservative) says there ia
no doubt that the retirement of Mr. Glad-
atone cannot be long delayed and in a kindly
way it refers to the personal aspect of the
event. It would be deplorable, it aays, if
any one in the Opposition should view hia
retirement with indifference.  The Standard
Sredicis that his withdrawal will lead to the
isruption of the Liberal party.
The Daily Graphic thia morning says that
it haa received information that the situation as far as Mr. Gladstone is concerned,
remains exactly the same as it was when Sir
Algernon West sent out his statement from
Biarritz ou January 31st. Apart from the
contingencies mentioned in that statement,
the Graphic adds: "Mr. Gladstone intends
to remain at the head of the government
and to contiuue to lead his party in the
House of Commons during the coming
session."
The Daily News denies that Mr. Glad-
atone had resigned and refuses to devote
any space discussing the idle talk of a
speedy dissolution of Parliament. It aays:
"Parliament will not be dissolved until the
Government haa exhausted the mandate of
the electors or forfeited the confidence of
the House ot Commons." In discussing the
possibility of his infirmity, compelling Mr.
Gladstone to retire, an event which it hopes
is far distant, the News aays "there ia no
doubt that Lord Roseberry will succeed to
the Prercieiahip and that Sir William Harcourt will become leader of the House of
Commons."
The Daily Chronicle says: The situation
has undergone a rapid change in a few daya.
The situation that -hub enunciated in ihe
Biarritz despatch no longer exists. The
retirement of Mr. Gladstone is a matter of
the near fuure. The man whom the Liberal
party would summon to its headship with
preponderating preference is Lord Rosebery.
Mr. Labouchere is the centre of the opposition to his candidicy mainly because he ia a
peer. The Irish would be inclined to support either Lord Rosebery or Lord Spencer,
but would certainly claim pledges regarding Home Rule from any successor to Mr.
Gladstone before giviug their votea.
The Times regards the official denial of
the reports of Mr. Gladstone's resignation
aa equivalent to a decision to postpone what
has virtually been determined upon. It
dilates upon the supposed divergence of
opinion in the Cabinet, especially in regard
to many expenditures, aud expresaea the
opinion that after Mr. Gladatone's retirement nobody will be able to hold together
the diverae elements composing the present
majority in the House of Commons. . Lord
Roseherry's leadership, the Times adda,
would doubtless be more acceptable to the
country than the leadership of any other
liberal, hut he would be inceaaantly argued
against by the Radicals, who would probably receive the support of the Irish.
Fenians Demand an Amnesty
Political Prisoners.
Cork, Feb. 27.���The visit to Ireland of
the Right Hon. John Morley, Chief Secretary for Ireland, has caused a demonstration
of the feeling of resentment which the Home
Rulers have cherished against him since hia
refusal to receive a deputation oi the Evicted Tenants Association. Mr. Morley based
his refusal on the ground that, the government intend* d to introduce a R ioBUtcme.a
Bill at the next session of Parliament. This
treatment led the Eviittd T**n*n t.< Aaaooi-
alluu ol Cork to iciuri. to thu principles of
the old Land League, aod they appointed a
vigilance committee, whose duty it was to
see that the boycotting of land grabbers was
rigidly enforced.
YeBterday the Fenians placarded the city
with green posters, headed in large type,
with the word: "Amnesty." The placards
declare that Daly and other Iriah martyrs
are dying by inches in English prisons,
while Mr. Morley's promise to release the
political prisoners is still unfulfilled. Continuing, the placard Bays: "France and the
United States have granted amnesty to political prisoners. Shall England be the only
nation in the world to refuse? Speak, John
Morley, Ireland demands an answer. God
save Ireland."
The Dublin branch of the Irish National
League had a special session last night at
which the following resolution was posed:
"We avail <.ursulvea of the presence of Mr.
Morley >o point nut that he nnd the Government have failed to keep the promise
made to Ireland."
John Barry, M.P., for South Wexford,
made a speech in which he expressed lack
of confidence in Mr. Morley, and alluded to
Mr. Gladstone aa the''Grand Old Humbug."
Violent apeeche* were made against Mr.
Gladatone and Mr. Morley at a large meeting held here on Sunday.

About two months ago the Britiah barque
Loch Urr, from Newcaatle-on-Tyne for Valparaiso, was posted at Lloyds aa miming,
and on November 10th last the British
barque Bombay Bailed from Lobos Di Afuera
in South America, for L ndon. Neither
vessel has been heard Irom since. A
private letter from Port Stanley in
the Falkland Islands states that a
piece of wreckage marked "Loch Urr"
and a life buoy marked "Bombay of Fleetwood" had been waBhed ashore. From this
it would appear that the two vessels were
in collision in rounding Cape Horn, and
both are probably lost. The Bombay waa
owned by J. N. Ward k Co. of Flee.wood,
and waa built in 1862. The Loch Urr waa
owned by J. Sproat of Liverpool, and was
built in 1870. The Loch Urr waa loaded
with ooal and the Bombay with guano.

broker. Upon their arrival iu California,
Sherwin assumed the name of Thomas H.
Blythe and Ashton became known as Wil-
iama.

The young man with a bad handwriting
who seeks employment among business men
finds there is no demand for his awkwardness at any price. Everyone who uses a
pen ahould write legibly and attractively.
There ia no excuse in theae daya for a young

ahould be left to those of a past generation,
who were educated before the days of business training schools. Here all of ordinary
intelligence and application can acquire a

THE WILSON TARIFF AND  FARM
PRODUCE.
The Wilson tariff bill, if it is not spoiled
in the Senate, promises to be of much advantage to the farmers of Canada, especially
those of Ontario, Quebec, and the maratime
provinces. There is no doubt at all that
the Republicans, aided by the protectionist wing of the Democrats, will do
their best to destroy its value as far as Canada is concerned, just as it is reported they
have succeeded in spoiling it as regards
coal. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, the
leading organ of the Republicans in Washington state, says: "The Republicans are
entirely justified in the most extreme parliamentary opposition to the Wilson tariff
bill to the bitter end." It accordingly
exhorts the opponents of the bill in the
Senate to exert their utmost efforts to defeat
it. It will, no doubt, be greatly pleased to
hear that imports of coal are still to be
taxed, although much lower than the Republicans claim is necessary.
The following articles, which mostly belong either directly or indirectly to the class
of agricultural products, are to be admitted
free under the Wilson tariff, unless it is
further mutilated in the Senate:
Apples, bacon and hams, preserved
meats, beef, mutton, pork, cabbages, cider,
eggs, feathers, undressed flax and hemp,
hair, lard, milk, green peas, trees and nursery stock of all kinds, seeds, straw, tallow,
teasels, wool, wool waste and noils. On the
following articles there is a duty of 20 per
cent., but it ie only to be imposed when
coming from a country where a like duty is
imposed on American articles of the same
sort. This rule practically adds the articles
to tbe free list bo far as Canada is concerned,
for it is the avowed policy of the Dominion
Government to reciprocate in every case in
which the Americans reduce or abolish a
���duty. Buckwheat, corn, oats, rye, wheat,
wheat flour and rye flour. The heavy duties
levied on the following farm products under
the McKinley tariff are, by the Wilson tariff reduced to 20 p**r cent, ad ralorem:
Horses and mules, cattle, calves, hogs,
sheep, lambs, butter, cheese and beans.
The duty on barley is reduced from 30 cents
a bushel to 25 per cent. of its value. The
���duty on hay is reduced from $4 a ton to $2;
on hops from 15 cents a pound to 8 cents;
on honey from 20 cents a gallon to 10 cents;
on onions from 40 cents a bushel to 20 cents;
on potatoes from 25 cents a bushel to 10
cents; on castor beans from 50 oents a
bushel to 25 oents; on flaxseed from 30
oents a bushel to 20 oents; on vegitables
from 25 per cent, to 10 per cent.; on live
poultry from 3 cents per pound to 2 cents;
and on poultry, dressed from 5 cents per
pound to 3 cents.
Before the McKinley Act was passed, the
United States imported nearly $8,000,000
worth of farm animals; for the year ending
30th of June last the value of such animals
imported into the States fell off more than
one half. As the new tariff is lower in many
oases than that which preoede I the McKinley tariff, this imjinrtant trad* will of oourse
be restored ui.iler the Wilson tariff. Formerly the United States imported ubout
12,500,000 worth of eggs; iu 1892 the importations of eggs amounted only to about
$500,000 worth. This trade, too, will experience a revival, since eggs have been
placed on the free list by the Wilson tariff.
Large quantities of Canadian barley used to
be sold in the States before McKinley's imposition was invented. The market there
for this staple will be restored under the
new tariff. The placing of agricultural implements on the free list will give the Canadian makers of these articles a chance to
compete with Amerioan makers in the
Amerioan market. What success the Canadian makers will have will depend mainly
on themselves; so also with the Canadian
salt manufacturers, they can sell their salt
dnty free in the States, a thing whioh they
have long wished to do. The Wilson tariff
does not establish free trade with the States,
bnt unless the bill is totally spoiled in the
Senate, Which no one seems to expect, it
will be a long step in the direotion of free
trade.
the Coal Mines Regulation Act which he
ought to have known, and whioh he prob*
ably did know, was unconstitutional*
When the competency of the Provincial
Assembly to deal with the measure w
called in question, the Speaker ruled it
out of order for the following reasons:
First, because it aims to impose indirect
taxation contrary to the provisions of the
British North America Aet; and, second,
because it has been decided by the Supreme
Court of the Province that the power to impose unequal taxation does not reside with
the Provincial Legislature. It might be
supposed that in the opinion of any reasonable person these two reasons would be considered amply sufficient to prevent the
House entertaining Mr. Keith's measure.
It would be the merest folly and an inexcusable waste of the time of the Legislature
to enact a law which would be in contravention to the terms of the British North
America Act, and against the principles of
which the Supreme Court of the Province
had already decided. The Legislative Assembly would demonstrate either its ignorance or its insincerity if it spent its time
in making laws which oould not possibly be
of any force or effect after they were made,
and which, in fact, would be nothing better
than waste paper."
As was stated in our correspondence from
Victoria, published in our issue  of  yesterday, the Labor   Bureau   Act  Amendment
Bill will not be proceeded with this session
of the Legislature.    It appears   that  since
the bill was preparer) a report has   been received of the Royal Labor   Commission   appointed in England to enquire into   a   similar   proposition   made  there.     Hon.   Mr.
Davie  states  that  he  finds   the   report
strongly condemns   the   principle  which is
the main feature of the bill.    As the report
is bulky and contains a great mass   of   evidence, it is no light   task   to   study it, and
until the Government has had   opportunity
to fully consider the   matter   the   Premier
felt it would be   a   bold step   to  adopt  a
principle   apparently  condemned    iu    the
Mother Country.    It   might,   however,  be
that what was deemed   the   best  policy in
England and throughout   Europe   was not
the best for British Columbia.   The Premier
said he   was   not   prepared   to  pronounce
definitely on the subject now, but considered it would be the height of temerity, under
the circumstances, to proceed with the   bill
this session.    The present statute   will   re
main in force in the meantime,   and  can be
put into requisition if occasion should   arise
for doing so.   As the  Government   was impressed with the importance of  having  all
information possible   bearing   on   the conditions here, as well as in England,   it   was
the intention to recommend that a commission issue to take evidence during the recess,
and gather all the   local   information   that
can be had.    With this iu hand   the   whole
matter can be   brought  before   the   House
next session, and the  Government  of  the
day can   deal   intelligently   with   it.   The
Premier considered it his duty to make this
explanation in moving for the   discharge of
the second reading of the bill.

A Nanaimo  Druggist Petitions  Parliament-Redistribution Bill To-Day.
Victoria, Feb. 27.���[Speoial]���In the
Legislature tbii afternoon, Thos. Hardy of
Nanaimo petitioned that, as he had been in
business at Nanaimo as a druggist and
herbalist since before the formation of the
Pharmaceutical Association, some legislation be made which will prevent the association from interferins;  with his business.
The chief feature of the day was Beaven's
want of confidence resolution, based on his
statement of the financial condition of the
oountry. The mover argued at some length
in attempting to show the correctness of his
figures, and was followed by Turner, Booth
(who moved a negative amendment), Brown,
Davie, Sword, Semlin, Grant, Watt, Milne
and Kitchen, the latter moving the adjournment of the debate.
The Redistribution Bill will be taken up
to-morrow.

Successful Organization.
The adjourned meeting called to organize
an association to support a candidate for
Nanaimo city in the interest of the present
Provincial Government met last night and
was largely attended. Executive officers
and committees were appointed after which
the association adjourned to meet again on
Friday evening next in the Foresters' Hall
over A. R. Johnston & Co.'s store at eight
o'clock. Everyone in sympathy with the
present Provincial Government is cordially
invited to attend.
A Call to Arms.
Many unmarried and unattached males
were rather alarmed yesterday at receiving a somewhat documentary looking letter.
They smiled, however, as they read it, and
at the finish said, "Why certainly." It ran
au follows: "You are requested to attend a
meeting of Independent Bachelors of Nanaimo, to be held ou February 28th, 1894. at
8 p.m., in the Caledonian Athletic Club
Room, for the purpose of making arrangements for a ball to be given to the ladies of
this city as a token of our appreciation of
the many kindnesses they have conferred on
A Private Residence Burned.
Last night at 8:80 the ringing of the fire
bell attracted a large crowd to the fire stations, and the brigade having soon mustered
a run was kept up to the scene of the fire,
which was at the house of Mrs. Forest close
to the corner of Fry Btreet. During the
journey down considerable difficulty was
experienced in the muddy places; thiB was
obviated by running the hose carts on the
sidewalks. A good many of those running
with the hose reels thought that it wus
merely a bush fire, but on rounding the corner of the Esplanade all doubts were put at
rest hy the Bight of the burning building.
The hose reels were rapidly unwound and
the firemen with the assistance of many of
the bystanders, speedily got them con-
neoted with the Fry, Esplanade and Halh
burton street hydrants. Here occurred
some hitches, us through some curious arrangements the water could not be got for
some time through the hydrants, there be
ing no pressure at all, and it just streamed
gently at the nozzle. After the pressure
of the water had eventually become
of some service to tbe firemen
the water was poured unto the blazing
building. Up to this time, buckets of water
were thrown on the roof of the adjoining
buildings by volunteers handing and throwing water on the shingles and adjoining
house sides. The house was a 6 or 8 roomed
house of 1^ stories with veranda. On the
arrival of the brigade, Humes were issuing
from the roof, sides and veranda of the
building. The lire boys mounted by means
of ladders to tile roof and veranda and in a
little more than an hour from its start, the
fire was extinguished. It is understood that
Mrs. Forest, the owner of the building uud
her don, were absent at the Salvation Army
meeting when the fire Btarted, so that uo
reason for the conflagration can be given,
It is also believed that the house which waB
worth about $1,500, was insured and that,
the contents were not of much value. The
building is now practically a ruin, though a
room and outhouse escaped the fate of the
remainder. Several amusing incidents
occurred during the evening in connec
tion with the manipulation of the hose and
nozzle. Several tin.es the full stream of
water from   the   hone  came  on   the crowd
Sresent, creating a general punic und flight,
ne unfortunate fireman, whilst on the roof
and trying to operate the nozzle Bnccess
fully, was last Been on his back, with the
hose playing all over him, and many similar
instances of sudden duckings were visible
during the constant struggles with the hose.
The firemen are to be congratulated for
their gocd turn out and successful endi-a-
vors, all of them working with a he*rty
will.
It has been suggested that in a lew cases
a little more discipline would be an im
provement, some of the members of the fire
company all shouting directions at one time,
though the older members performed their
duty with coolness and despatch. The fire
was extinguished at about 10 p.m., und
though the walls of the house are standing,
it is a total loss, being completely gutted.

KASLO!!
KOOTENAY LAKE, B.C.
IS COMING TU THE FRONT WITH A BOUND
It is the center of the Silver-Lead Mining Industry of the famous Slocan Region, which is now
sending $75,000 worth of Ore to Kaslo per week for shipment to the American smelters.
Mining men from all parts of the world say that it is the richest silver district known. The progress of development work in the mines verifies this statement.
Thousands of men will be employed in these mines. The natural base of supplies is Kaslo, which
is admirably adapted for the purpose, being a beautiful townsite, situated on a bay possessing excellent
shipping advantages.
The right of way for the Kaslo-Slocan Railway has been cleared, and the bridge foundations
have been put in place, so that the work of grading and track-laying may proceed at the earliest possible moment after the snow disappears.
The growth of Kaslo last year was very considerable. It is now an incorporated town, having a
population of 2,000 people. That this population will be doubled before the end of the present year is

LATEST, FEBRUARY 26th, 1894:
Kaslo, B. C, Feb. 26.���Nearly all of Front street, Kaslo, between 3rd and 4th, waa destroyed
by fire on Saturday night. Thirty buildiugs were burned, including all the hotels except the Leland
and Slocan.    (xvec-n Bros.' buildings, J. B. Wilson's store and other parts of the town escaped.
Loss estimated at $100,000, with small insurance. The only fire p-otection is a small hand engine, with a volunteer brigade, the water having to be taken from the bay. The Customs Offices,
Byers' Hardware Store, and all the principal business establishments of the town were located on
this street, and succumbed to the devouring flames.
The best thing that could happen.    Seattle and Vancouver over
again.   A good fire

KASLO W_NAIMO, B. C, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28. 1894.
Wtty Grow Old.
I find tho* If old people aro pat on a
good meat diet in the way of strong
���oup, beef tea and animal food, and only
Just sufficient farinaceous food and fats
and sugar to maintain the heat of the
body, they increase wonderfully in en.
srgy and, as they often express it, feel
SO years younger. This is only natural;
tt is a food of energy���the food that
builds up muscle, do-to and oonstitn-
tional stamina.
The requirements of the system In old
age as a rule are not great, and more
harm is done by taking too much food
than by taking too little. I have known
people considerably over 70 touorire the
greatest benefit from a thorough change
in diet It seems to rejuvenate them.
Of course in old age care should bo taken
that the body is not subjected to rapid
changes of temperature. When the nervous power is decreasing as the result
of age and the system is losing its power
of combating cold and strain upon its
energy, a stimulating diet invigorates
and is conducive to maintaining constitutional stamina better than any other.
Any natural death but from old age
and general decay is an accidental death
���that is, it is due to causes which might,
and even perhaps could, have been entirely avoided and remedied ia earlier
years.���Gentleman's Magazine,
THE STARTER.
Molt Young Men Are Afraid of Babies.
"The average young uan," said a
traveler, "has do great fondness for
young children. I don't know how
many times I have heard a mother who
was carrying a little child, and who had
halted in the aisle of a railroad car say,
referring to the vacant seat aud addressing the young man by the window,
'Is this seat taken?' And I don't know
how many timea I have seen the young
man's face lengthen as he answered politely, 'No.' The mother takes the seat
and the young man begins to grow restless. He reads the paper still, but he
keeps his eye on the baby, and you may
bo sure the baby has its eye on him���a
beaming, good natured eye it is, too���and
the young man finds it not the easiest
thing iu tho world to appear wholly unconstrained with attention thus drawn
to him, but he makes a bluff at it and
does pretty well until the infant moistens one chubby fist in its mouth and
reaches out to make a print of it on the
lapel of the young man's coat. Then
the young man rises. 'Madam,' he ���
says, 'let mo give you this seat,' and he |
steps out into the aisle. And he doesn't
look for another seat in that oar. He '
makes a bee line foe the smoker. "���Ifew

The Food We BaS,
Hardly a day passes that we do not receive some shock, that we are not asked
to give up some favorite dish around
which clusters a host of tender early
memorio3, and after eating of which we
have for 20 years on end felt ourselves
grow fat and childlike and undyspeptic.
But the niodi.'-hi hygiene says it must go,
and if we retain it on our list we do it in
an anxious and guilty mood sure of it-
self to beget internal trouble. i
Seemingly simple things like dry toast;
oatmeal aud apples we have heard for*:
bidden of late as hard to take care of, '
and bananas, or, for example, the deli- ���
cious, but as we supposed deadly, fried
bacon cried up as food for babes and
sucklings.     This is  puzzling���it  goes
against personal experience, it upsets all
our dietary plans  and pleasures, and it
awakens the shrewd suspicion that mere
fashion is at the bottom of the change.

Taking casts from a living horse Is something new in the sculptor's hue. William

The Horseman says an owner should ex

Cold Air In Plaee of Im,
I predict that 10 years from now tbe
familiar ice wagon will be a novelty upon the streets of a city, so general will
have been the adoption of artificial refrigeration. For a long time brewers,
pork packers and storage men have been
independent of the ice crop, aud the introduction of the cold air pipe lines down
town has supplanted tho iirte of ice in hotels, restaurants and barrooms except
wherein it is desired to make a display
of the crystal commodity. In tune tie
distribution of cold air will be as general
in cities as is gas or water, and the system will be perfected whereby the refrigerating gas necessary for attachment
to a family refrigerator will be delivered
in a tank just like carbonated water is
to the soda fountains, once a month or
as required.���St. Louis Globe-Democrat

Until within a few years dueling in
France Was so common that fi.000 such

minister of war, discouraged the practice and rendered it option;:! under circumstances iu which it had been considered imperative. Amoug civilians, however, tho game goee merrily on, being
chiefly sustained by angry politicians or
excited journalists. It was calculated
in 1880 that since 1870 847 duels had
been fought in France outside the army.

THE ART OF SHOPPING
The art of shopping is not necessarily to make at all times a good bargain, but to secure a fair equivalent of the money spent, and to be able to do
this with the least expenditure of time and tr utile.
A   G-OOX)   _3_fiL.XtGkA.X2T
Is distinguished from a cheap bargain, but in these days of bargains and bargain-days, when from one end of Canada to the other���yea, and the
United States, too���the newspapers are crying bargains���and we read about bargains in this thing, and bargains in that thing, when bargains are by
many more to be sought after than wisdom, and when every dealer in the couttry from the "peanut vendor" to the "merchant prince" calk everything
a bargain���in these days it is not so easy to distinguish a good bargain from the cheap one.
\TJE1F  EESULT   OF   SSZOJP^IJsTG-
Should be a feeling of satisfaction with the goods purchased. A sense of having accomplished what you set out to do, and that in a reasonable
and sensible manDer.    Not a tired-to-death feeling, and an uncertainty as to whether that forty-nine cent article was worth fifty cents after all.
WE SA."Y* THAT T__r_��i wc ;__c___.__t
Who desires to make an art of shopping will fasten her faith to the store that proposes to give her always the cash value for her money. It is for
the trade of all who desire good bargains, as we distinguish them, that we work.
