OVER HISTORIC GROUND
G. B. McMillan and R. Robinson Ready
to  Start from  Quesnel  for
Ingenika River. ,
I Special   Correspondence.)
Quesnel, B. C, April 25.���We arrived
here Wednesday at 7.50 p. in., being
three days on the road from Ashcroft.
The road from Ashcroft to 150-Mile
House was fine, but the rest of the way
was the worst 1 ever rode over. Everyone hus read of the Yale-Cariboo Wagon
Road, and when il is considered that it
is nearly fifty years old and that in late
years the traffic did not Justify great
expenditure for the purpose of maintenance it is not to be wondered that It ls
uot in a good state ot repair. Besides
tbe heavy rains have contributed towards ita present bad condition. Nevertheless, 1 am Informed tbat lu summer
time it is a beautiful drive, and its historic associations cetVAuily render it an
inLeresting one.
Quesne,, itself is not lacking In historic interest, at leusL to the gold seeker. It will be remembered that iu 1859
rich deposits ot gold were fouud on the
(quesnel river, it is claimed by old
timers thai the Quesnel was fully as
rich as auy part ol the Fraser. After
tbe discovery they followed up the north
folk of the yuesnel lo Keithley creek.
In the town itsell the visitor is still In
the utmospbere of tbe frontier mining
town. Tbe townspeople still look forward to the lime when it will again become the centre of a great mining excitement. The merchants seem to be
doing a good business and the residents
generally are of the prosperous class.
We bad no difficulty in securing the
material to bin'iii a boat and Robinson
and 1 are at work on its construction
and hope to have it completed in live or
six days.
We have been very fortunate here ln
meeting Louis Mero the real discoverer
of McConnell Creek, a tributary of the
Nigeniha and about 120 mllea trom the
mouth ot the latter river, or commonly
called the North Fork. Mero is au interesting person, and is a true type of
the French-Canadian gold-seeker. He
has travelled a great deal and his
stories are another proof of the old saying that truth Is stranger than fiction.
He has four men with him and they will
tuke in five tons of provisions. Mero
lias given us much valuable information
about his recent discoveries, and I can
only say that we are not sorry we started, aud we have reason to congratulate
ourselves on meeting him. He has built
two large dug-outs, and we will all leave
together on or about May 1st. He has
made the trip several times and informs us that the river ls easy and that
we can go straight to his cabin ln a
boat.
We would be ready to start even
sooner but we are waiting for the ice
in the Upper Fraser to come down.
It might be interesting for those on

on the night of April 5th, was continued
yesterday and evidence -was brought out

LIGHT JtESTORED
City Plant Is Again In
Operation
ALL DEFECTS REPAIRED
Service Was Resumed This Horning
���Whole Plait Now Declared To
Be in Good Order.
Nelson's electric light and power ser.
vice is again in commission, a little
earlier than waa exi,.   ted yesterday.
The emergency sup, ly of oil ordered
from Spokane arrived uuring the night
and waa delivered at the suoslution this
morning. .. . .^1
At the same time a telegram arrived
from Milwaukee authorizing A. H. C.
Jackson to Udte charge for the Allis-
Chalmers-Bullock company.
immediately, aa soon as the transformers were filled, the current was
turned on and gradually worked up to
full strength.
The plant ls now reported In good
working order, with all reconstruction
and improvement work complete, and
tbe company will probably offer It for
final test within a tew days.
The appearance of a faint light this
morning shortly after 11 o'clock was
hailed with delight as the succession of
nights with halt lit homes and wholly
unlit streets was becoming depressing
even to Nelsonites.
Now. all Is well, and after the second
unit is Installed, a beginning of which
will no doubt be made this year. Nelson's  light and  power will be secure.
ASQUITH DROP8 HOME RULE.
First Speech to  Reform Club  Haa No
Mention of it.
London, April 30.���The Liberals held
a party love feast at tbe Reform Club
this morning to welcome their new
chief. Premier Asqulth, and gave him an
opportunity of publishing a declaration
of hia policy. Resolutions of loyalty
to Mr. Asquith were adopted by acclamations after which the premier proceeded to outline his programme. He
nailed to the mast tne irags of free
trade,' education, licensing and old age
pensions, but he fought shy of home
rule. This is considered as confirmation of the rumors following the defeat
of Winston Churchill in the northwest
division of Manchester that the premier
had notified him of hia disapproval of
Mr. ChiirchlU'B pledges to the Nationalists regarding home rule.
Receipts Declining.
Ottawa, April 30.���Customs receipts
for the Dominion for April totalled $3.-
449,947, a decrease of $1,018,440, as compared with April ot last year.

to be carried across to the city.
Neither Plesd Nor Elect.

of wandering over the world ..with detectives at his heels Captain Colin C.
Harbottle, former secretary of the Toronto Club, and at one time one of society's favorites, was before Police Magistrate Denlson today to auswer a

charge Is the embezzlement of $14,595
from the Toronto Club, but there are a

and  was   remanded.

futile. Uut an improvement is now
promised iu the organization of tlie

ci.airman himself,
Ou this subject and not at all in
a parlizan spirit, the Toronto News
says:
Mr. MSbss, chairman of the federal
railw.'i.t commission, has announced
ihat the board will hold regular sittings

lilair and Mr. Killam there were no
regular fixed dates lor ibe hearing of
applications, and this lack of delay made
for delay and contusion. Mr. Mabi B B
announcement is a first step towards
a better organization of the board. Bvt n

the board may do its work with l.'h

Moreover, parliament should abandon
tbe proposal to create a deputy chairman, and should place a!] commissioners outside of the chairman on un equal
footing, each with power lo hear cases
and to report the evidence to the lull
board at Ottawa. This is tie principle
upon which Un- interstate commission
at Washington li now organised, and it

Liberal organs seem still unable to

they are really accusing him of know-

report ot ilie commission has revealed

When You Buy Fruit Land
IT  IS  WELL TO   REMEMBER THAT WHAT  IS  IMPORTANT IS NOT THE   FIR8T   COST OF   YOUR   FRUIT
FARM,   BUT  THE  AMOUNT  OF PROFIT WHICH  YOUR   FARM  WILL YIELD   YEAR   BY   YEAR.
DON'T be attracted by cheaper,  Inferior or  Inaccessible  lauds  which exist ln the  Kootenay,  as elsewhere
���hut get Uie  best.    Take advantage of a double selection.
1     Our selection  was  ninde wilh  the  utmost care at a tllYic when we had the whole district to pick from.
2.    Your   selection -made   trom ours���thus you get the benefit of a double  and  cumulative selection.
FURTHERMORE,     remember that to be successful the following five qualities are absolutely essential:
11).    Title;   i").    Boll;   (3). Water;   (4). Accessibility;   (5). Transportation.
WE SELL OUR OWN LANDS.    We own over 20,000 acres, title perfect.
THE  SOIL  Is deep loam  with clay subsoil, free from stone.
THE  WATER on these lands  Is  pure  and  abundant  both  In   running streams and numerous Bprlngs.
THE   MARKET  for your product  is  right  at your door ou existing lines of  transportation.
BUT when you buy an orchard tra.'t you want  more than soil;  more than pure water; more than transpor-
tatlon;  you want A HOME���A place to live in���THAT IS WHAT WE HAVE  FOR  SALE.
Post   office   with   dally   mall service;   express trains, stores;  schools���A   home   every   few   steps.    You   got
the comforts of civilization combined  with the pleasure of a  profitable, healthful and beautiful rural home.

Pilgrimage to  Rome.
Now York, April 30.-���Amid cheers
from a large crowd and much embracing and other tokens of farewell, the
Cunard steamship Slavonia, having on
board a large number of Catholic pilgrims bound for Some, sailed at noon
today. The delegation numbers several hundred, including many prominent priettS, laymen and women of the
faith, and is headed by Bishop Mt>
I>.-iineM of Brooklyn, who officiates as
the spiritual director of ihe pilgrimage. During the voyage mass will be
celebrated daily in a cabin specially
set aside  for  the  purpose.
The first stop will be at Gibraltar.
Krom there the pilgrims will proceed
to Naples. They will visit Pompeii,
Capri and Monte Casino before going
to Home. The party will be present
al the jubilee celebration of the Pope
and then it will disband. Some will
visit the Holy Land, while others will
go   to   Northern   Europe.
Russo Swedish Alliance.
St. Petersburg, April 30.���The preparations for the wedding next week
of Prince Wilhelm of Sweden and
Grand Uucvhess Maria Pavlona, daughter of Grand Duke Paul Alexandro-
vitch are practically complete. The
King of Sweden, who is coming to attend the wedding, is due to arrive tomorrow. He will be escorted by a
Swedish squadron from Stockholm. The
details of the programme are not published in Russia for fear they might
he used by the terrorists to make an
attempt on the lives of the Emperor
and his guests. The coincidence that
the marriage occurs at the same time
aa tlie centennial or the fall of Svea-
borg and the passing of Finland to
Russian control has been much commented upou. On the day of the wedding there will be a gathering at. Hal-
singfors to commemorate the surrender  of  Sveaborg.
Attell and Sullivan Ready.
San Francisco, April 30.���Not for a
long time has so much interest beeu
displayed in a pugilistic event here-
abottt.s as is manifested iu the bout between Abe Attell an 1 Brooklyn Tommy
Sullivan, which is to be decided in the
Coliseum tonight. Both lighters are reported today to be in the best of condition, a fact which gives promise of
the prettiest boxing seen in California
in many a day. This will be the third
time that Attell has defended his championship title against tlie Brooklyn
lighter. Un the occasion of their iirst
meet, which took place in St. Douls,
Sullivan knocked out Attell decisively.
being the only fighter who ever turned
the trick. I^ist summer the two fought
a draw at Alton. The agreement for
tlie present match calls for twenty
rounds at 123 pounds, a weight which
is much more favorable to the champion
than to Sullivan. A preliminary event
of Bfteen rounds is to be lurnished by
Fred  Landers and Johnny Frayne.
