C, SATURDAY, JUNE 7, 1902.  $1.00 a year.  s  PEACE AT LAST  UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER—WISE CONCESSIONS GIVEN THE BOERS  General Jubilation Throughout The Empire at The  Glad Tidings of Peace—Kruger Has No Part  in The Ratification—Lord Kitchener  The Man of The Hour.  The terms of peace in South Africa were announced in the house of  commons last Monday as follows :  The burgher forces lay down their arms and hand over all rifles and  munitions of war in their possession, or under their control.  All prisoners are to be brought back as soon as possible to South  Africa, without loss of liberty or property.;  No action is to be taken against prisoners, except where they are  guilty of breach of the rules of war.  Dutch is to be taught in the schools, if desired by the parents, and  nised in the courts if necessary.  Rifles are allowed for protection.  Military occupation is to be withdrawn as soon as possible, and self-  !government substituted.  There is to be no tax on the Transvaal to pay the cost of the war.  The sum of ^3,000,000 sterling is to be provided for re-stocking the  Boer farms.  Rebels *re liable to trial, according to the law of the colony to  whidh they belong.  The rank and file will be disfranchised for life.  The death penalty will not be inflicted.  The British authorities absolutely rejected the suggestion oi the  Boer delegates that the terms of surrender should be ratified by Mr.  Kruger, and declared that the Boers in Europe had no hand in the settlement. The terms show that the British Government carried its contentions on every viital point, while the minor concessions, particularly  those in regard to generous financial treatment, will greatly appeal to  Boers in generaL  The ballot of the Boers at Vereeninging resulted in fifty-four votes  in favor of surrender and six against it.  On Wednesday in the house of commons, the leader of the government presented the following message from King Edward:  " His Majesty, taking into consideration the eminent services rendered by Lord Kitchener, and being desirious, in recognition of such services, to confer on him some signal mark of his favor, recommends that  he should be enabled to grant Lord Kitchener fifty thousand pounds."  It was announced later that Baron Kitchener had been created a  viscount by King Edward, and that he had sailed for England.  Gen. Baden-Bowell is arranging for the distribution of mounted constabulary in various districts. The police, railroads and telegraphs will  be handed over to the civil authorities as soon as possible, and the restrictions of martial law will be gradually relaxed.  General Louis Botha, the Boer commandant-general, has written  an open letter to the burghers, thanking them for their obedience in the  past and expecting them to be equally loyal in their obedience to the  new government.  Edwards-Hambrok.  On Tuesday evening, June 3rd,  at the residence of R. Whiteside,  Lulu Island, the marriage of Charles  Edwards and Miss Jane Hambrook  took place, the Rev. I. W. Williamson performing the ceremony. Only  a few friends of the parties were in  attendance, the bride being given  away by her father. After the ceremony an elaborate supper was partaken off, when the newly-wed  couple left for Vancouver to spend  their honeymoon.

We publish below a few extracts  from the railway bills and agreements made by the government,  which will bear close scrutiny. The  railway policy of British Columbia  is very pliable and the contrast between the sections are not at all to  be desired.  With all the shuffling, it looks as  though Delta may be deprived of a  Vrailway, although the Loan Bill  states definitely that the railway  shall run "from some point iu the  /neighborhood of English Bluff near  Point Roberts," while the agreements made with McLean's says,  "from a point at or near or south  east of the city of New Westminster  to the notith of the Fraser river,"  If the Loan Bill is adhered to the  railway will go through Delta, but  otherwise it is doubtful as connections can be made into Vancouver  by the Lulu Island railway from  Steveston, also following tbe north  side of the river to Westminster,  Which will be in accordance with  the agreement made but not by any  means what the Loan Bill provides.  Who owns tlie Lulu Island Railway ?  The C. P. R. or the government.  Does the the C. P. R. own the government or is there a government? It looks as if the whole proposition were in the hands of railway  schemers.  The following is an extract of  "an act to authorize a loan of five  million dollars for the purpose of  aiding the construction of Railways  and other public works," dated 1901.  "It shall be lawful for the Lieut-  enant-Goveronor in Council to grant  for and in aid ofthe cons! ruction of  the following railways and to be  paid out of the moneys raised under  this Act, a sum not exceeding four  thousand dollars for each mile of railway, of the uniform gauge of four  feet eight and one-half inches, viz:-  For a railway from the City of  Victoria, from the City of Vancouver and from some point in the  neighbourhood of English Bluff,  near Point Roberts, via Chilliwack  and Hope to Midway, in the Boundary District, approximately three  hundred and thirty miles:  "No person, firm, or company,  shall be entitled to a subsidy for the  ponstruction of a line between vicinity of English Bluff, aforesaid,  and Midway, except on conditio  that the company applying for same  Shall enter into an agreement with  proper assurances, satisfactory to  the Lieuteiiant-Coveronor in Council, to construct a suitable steal::  ferry, capable of maintaining a speed  of not less than fourteen knots per  hour, and to operate a daily round  trip service between the Mainland  and Vancouver Island, at Sidney,  Schwartz Bay or at the most convenient point, to connect with the  City of Victoria for the transportation of cars, freight and passengers,  such steam ferry service to connect]  with a direct line of railway to the  said City of Victoria.  Following will be found clause i  pf the agreement between ' 'the government" and McLean Bros.  The parties ofthe second part  covenant with the government to lay  put, construct, equip, fully complete  ar.d maintain, or cause to be laid  put, const! uctcd, equipped, fully  completed and maintained  a line of  railway, with all proper terminal  facilities, fror,: a point;.; or near the  City oi' Vancouver, with terminus  at tide water at such point, thence  eastwrrd, via New Westminster, by  the most feasible route through the;  Province of British Columbia to a  point at or near Midway,' in the  Boundary Creek District; and from  a point at or near or south-east of  the City of New Westminster to the  month of the Fraser River, to connect with the Victoria Terminal  City Railway and Ferry Company,  or such other ferry or ferries as may  be in operation between the said  points and Vancouver Island, which  said railway, when fully completed  as foresaid, shall be a standard  gauge railway, and up to the general standard of like gauge transcontinental railways, and shall be  the property of the parties of the  second part.  This is taken from "an Act to  incorporate the Vancouver and  Coast-Kootenay Railway company,  >ection 4;  The company may lay out, construct and operate a railway of the  gauge of four feet eight and one-  hall inches, from a point in or near  the City of Vancouver, with ter  minus at tide-water at such point;  thence eastward, via New Westmin  ster, by the most feasible route  wholly through the said Province  to a point at or near Midway, in the  Boundary Creek District; and from  a point at or near or south-east of  the City of New Westminster to the  mouth of the Fraser River, to connect with the Victoria Terminal  City Railway and Ferry Company,  or such other ferry or ferries as may  be in operation between the said'  points and Vancouver Island, with  power to build a branch line from  some suitable point on the main line  in a northerly direction to a point  at or near Nicola Lake, in Yale  District.  Below will be found section 4 of  "An Act to aid the construction of  a Railway from Vancouver to  Midway.  The Lieutenant-Governor in  Council may enter into an agreement with the "Vancouver ai:d  Coast Kootenay Railway Company,'  or with any other railway company,  for the construction of a railway  from the City of Vancouver to Midway. The said agreement, in ad  dition to other matters therein pro  vided for, shall contain the followin{  provisions:—  The Company covenant with the  Government to lay out, construct,  equip, fully complete and maintain,  or cause to be laid out, constructed,  equipped, fully completed and maintained, a line of railway, with all  proper terminal facilities, from the  City of Vancouver, with terminus  at tide water at such point; thence  eastward, via New Westminster and  ilie railway bridge at New Westminster now being constructed;  thence south of the Fraser River via  Chilliwack by the most feasible  route through the Province of British Columbia to a point at or near  Midway, in the Boundary Creek  District; and from a point at or near  or south-east of the City of New  Westminster to the mouth of the  Fraser River, to connect with the  ferry between the Mainlsnd a: d  Vancouver Island at the most convenient point on Vancouver Island  so as to give direct communication  with the City of Victoria, which  said railway, when fully completed  as aforesaid, shall be a standard  gauge railway, and up to the general standard of like gauge transcontinental railways, and shall be  the property of the Company.  ur Business is  1  to Make Happy Homes.

The war in South Africa is over,  the terms of surrender being signed  on Saturday evening with the result that rejoicing and demonstrations were held all over the British  Empire. The terms of peace are  published on another page. There  is no doubt that in a very short time  Great Britain will have as true and  loyal subjects in South Africa as can  be found in the Empire. From long  experience Britain handles her colonies and subjects with such care  and freedom that the longer they  remain under the Union Jack the  stronger is their allegiance. South  Africa affairs will now settle down  to business which will advance with  rapid strides.  Surrey Center.  Last Monday evening a surprise  party took place at the residence of  Mrs. Dafoe, Surrey Centre. This  was the mode agreed upon of bidding farewell to Rev. Mr Whittaker,  lor the past two years Methodist  minister here. There were present  a number of his congregation and  others of his many friends in the  community. Parlor games and  music made the evening pass very  pleasantly. Before supper was served Messrs. J. Boothroyd and Tem-  pler, 011 behalf of his congregatian,  presented the retiring minister with  an address, accompanied by a handsome writing case.  Forfeits Senatorship.  Senator Mason, who sat in the  Commons lor Terrebonne from confederation down till 1882, who was  minister of militia in Sir John A.  Macdonald's government, 1878 till  1880, and who held the lieutenant-  governorship of Quebec from 1884  till 1887 has forfeited his seat in the  Upper House by non-attendance at  the last two sessions of parliament.  The vacancy will not, however, be  officially declared till the House  meets again, as the senate must itself be made aware of the facts.  Provincial Party.  The Provincial Progressive Party,  the successors of tlie Labor Party,  which was recently organized at  Kamloops, has issued its manifesto,  dealing with the issues tabulated in  the platform published at the time  of the convention. The separate  labor organizations throughout the  province have received copies of tlie  manifesto, which states in detail the  objects of the new party, and asks  for the support of the various  organizations.  Customs Returns.  The Canadian customs collections  for the eleven months ofthe current  fiscal year total #29,165,577, a gain  of $2,822,707 over the same period  last year. For May alone the revenue is $2,776,980, an increase of  $350,475 over last year. This showing far outruns the largest customs  revenue of other years.  The summer session of the Normal school will commence on 4th  July. All teachers holding B. C.  provincial certificates obtained prior  to August, 1901, are eligible.  Forms of application for admission  can be obtained from Principal  Burns of Vancouver.  By-law No. 230 of the city of Vancouver is published in full.
