"The Board of Trade Suggests Itself as an
Organization Eminently Qualified to
Take This Matter in Hand."
Mineral Act, Section 117, (IJ.   A Certificate of Improvement shall not bo impeached iu
any Court on nuy ground except that of fraud.
Editor Era .-���The editorial in your issue ol the 17th inst., and
also letter signed "Free Miner," in that of tlte 24th, commenting on
that monumental outrage known as the Goldeu Smelti-r should afford
���atisfaetioh to everyone having an interest in the advancement of
mining or any business or enterprise in Northeast Kootenay, and all
must hope that now thnt the ball has been let rolling a determined
effort shall be made to eee this thing to a finish,
Tl.e Golden Board of-Trade luggetla itself lo ine us tn organization eminently qualified to take this matter in hand ; that Is, to force
the holders of the smeller .townsite either to show that they bave
complied witlr the terms of tho agreement by which they obtained a
title to the lands comprising what is kuown as the townsite, or that
they forthwith proceed to do so. Otherwise to arrange properly the
whele question so that it may b. placed intelligently before the Dominion Ooverninent.
I cannot see that any lengthened correspondence would be of any
material benefit, and that, 1 take it, ii what we are after.
Merely to attempt to impeach the title to the townsite would not
bs of benefit to anyone.   To force the owners of the smeller to make
an honest effort to do that for which they were given the townsite,
and which, ai yet, they have not even attempted to do, would be, I
3* think, a more in the right direction.

London, Jair 25-TK* Daily Newt
attaches importance to the despatch
from The Hague correspondent, stating
that priva e Soir.li African despatches
hnve reached military circles at The
Hague to the effect that important de
velopmeuts are expected lu Cape Colony. Tliey add that the power of the
Boers in ihe Colony are dally Increasing, and colonists are joining the Boer
ranks in steadily increasing number!.
Rebellion is constantly spreading. Tbe
executions of Lotter nnd Scbeepen
haveconslderablyexoited the loyalists,
an.l ure causing even lome of the oldeet
of them to join the Boers, whose position Is more favorable than at any
time aince the commencement of hos
tilitlas. The British forces suffered
twelve defeat's from September to November, ol whioh no'mention was
made in Kitchener's dispatohes. Tele*
grains from impartial correspondents
iu Suuih Africa have been received at
The Hague describing the prospects of
Iloi-r resistance as encouraging. Indeed, projects for the Government of
an independent South Afrioa are under
consideration by Botr leaders.

Redmond (Irish Nationalist), in the
House of Commons to day, why Com
mandant Scheepers, who was captured by General French in October
last, was executed last Saturday at
Rraat Relnet, Cape Colony. The Sec*
rotary replied that Scheepers was shot
because he had been convicted of various offences against the uiuages of
war, including seven cold.-blooded mur
dera of natives, and the flopging of a
white man. Mr. Brodarick added that
the faot that Commandant Scheepers
was a prisoner of war carried no exemption from trial for murder or other
violation of the rales of war.
Quebec, Jan. 29.���William Power, a

lei, Quebec, wai declared elected by

vancy caueed hy tha death of Hon. R.

Prior's Old Seat Lost to the
Victoria, Jan. 38. -Tbe bye-lection
in Victoria to fill the vacancy earned
hy unsealing Colonel Prior, retulted
iu the election of Geo. Riley, Liberal,
over 8. Barnard, Conservative, by ���
majority of 431.   The vote itood:
Riliy   1,797
Barnard  1,376
The result is a surprise to both
parties. Riley's friende felt confident
of his election, but had no hope of piling up such a big majority. Tbe Conservative leaders feel greatly disappointed aa they claim that a canvas of
the city gave them every hope of a
handsome majority for Barnard. At
the general election Prior and Eail btal
Riley and Drury, Liberals, by 351 and
the change to a Liberal majority of 421
astounds both aides. It ia tha first
time in tbe history of Victoria that
the city has elected a Liberal to the
House of Commons. The Liberals hail
a big parade and torchlight procession
with speeches and general jubilation.
Ottawa, Jan 37���The Canadian Pacific Railway Company has applied to*
lhe Dominion Government for approval of a resolution authorising the
Board of Directors, with the sanction
of tbe shareholders to increase tha
capital slock of tbe company for tha
purpose ot making great improvements
all along the line of the railway.
These improvements will aggregate
820,000,000, which it the amount by
which the capital stook ot the company
is sought to be increased. The work
of improvement has already been practically started, and will be carried out
in all parte oi ths Dominion during th*
next year or two. Thia is the first
time in the history of the Dominion
that a railway company has been
financially strong enough to raise additional capital by selling its common
stock. An additional arrangement,
beyond the fact of the financial standing of the company, has been effected
to insure that every dollar of stock
issued thall be represented by a dollar
in cash in betterment of the railway.
The Government haa stipulated, and
officers of tlu compuny bave absolutely
agreed, that none of the stock shall be
sold below par.
The purpose for which the additional
stock is to be disposed of is to enable
the company to double-track a largo
part of the line, and for new rolling
itock, locomotives and cars and th*
laying of heavier rails nlong the present line, and to provide such other improvements as may bs found necessary
to cope with the large increase in
traffic, and whicli is rxpeeiad to continue iu ihe future.
The money is to be expended in somewhat the following manner: Rolling
stock, $9,000,000; double tracking,
1(1,000.000; Montreal. $1,500,000; new
elevators, and improvements of terminals, 13,000,000; miscellaneous improvements, (500,000; making s total
of 120,000,000.
As a further safeguard ot publio
interest, besides the provision that tb*
stock must not hs sold below par, tb*
company has agreed that in calculating ten per cent., which, by the terms
of its original contract with the Crown
must be earned hy the railway upon
the amount of lis actual cash cost before parliament or tho Governor General in Council can interfere with ite
tolls, litis new stock and tlie proceeds
of it shall not be included in theactua^
cash cost of tht rail -ay. In this way
the time Is beiug hastened when the
Government has the right to interfere
and reduce the tolls of the company if
they are found to be unreasonable,
Again, questlona have been arising,
in parliament at to the exact meaning
ol this section, whicli excludes the
right of parliament to interfere with.
tolls until 10 per ctnt hat been earned
upon the caah coat ol Ihe road. Th*
Government aud the company have
therefore agreed to lubmit for friendly
reference to the Supreme Com t of Canada, or, 11 necessary, to tba Julicial
Committee of the Privy Council, in
order that an authoritative interpretation may be obtained without further
Tbe expenditure ot 120,000,000 of
United States and European money in
Canada will no donbt be of great advantage to thi! oountry.

FRIDAY. Jakuakt 31, 1DO-.
Tha Rev. Samuel Pearson, who ia
Slieriff of Cuuiherlanil County, Maine,
has on exhibition some extraordinary
devices for evading, the |>rohlbitiou
law. A big walti.iii,i:unt*, taken from
a peslsller, wns found to be vessel containing ten drinks of whiskey. A
semi-tireiilar tin tank, containing
whiskey, wai worn hy a woman at a
bustle. A man whose general appear
ance was that of thinness had an
extraordinary large "corporalion." It
wae produced by a hidden tank full of
whiskey. Chocolate cans ou the shel
ves of grocery stores tnd medicine
bottlee in drug shopt were seized aud
found to ooutaiu intexioanta.
By tar Ihe most interesting at well
as comical feature of Sheriff Pearson's
exhibition, however, waa hit graphic
illustration of how his deputies ltad
aeixed whlekey from the bed of a inp
posed sinall-|iOX patient and from the
cradle of a supposed dying infant He
had upon theetageabed fully made up,
and cradle of the old fashioned kind.
Hs got into the bod and covered him
tell up to thi chin to represent a man
whoao house wat lurched for liquor,
and wbo, as his wife informed the
officers, was "terrible sick." The
Sheriff gol up and went to the foot of
Ihe bed, from whicli he pulled dozens
of bottles of liquor, remarking as he
did it that lhe more whiskey the officers
palled out the sicker the man in the
bad became. Tbe officers had been told
thai thia man had smallpox, but they
went in and got the whiekey, while
th*. man got four monthi. The slieriff
it in the htbit of delivering lecturet,
and tome ol hit illustrations are remarkable. A bed and a craslls* are
placed ou tbe stage in order to illua
irate two cases. In one a man was
aald to be extremely ill of email pox.
The sheriff went to the bed and pulled
out doxene of bottles of liquor. Corn-
to the cradle inoident, the sheriff pus
on an apron and cap aad lat down bo
aide tbt couch of an imaginary tick
infant, aingiug a lullaby and rocking
thi cradle wiih ono foot. Then, aa he
rocked, ha related io the audience
how the deputies had gone to a woman's house 10 starch for liquor and
bad found tho woman rocking a cradle,
Sbe aaid ibe baby wai vtry sick, audi
really, it looked sick; but tbey w��re
after whiskey, and, concealed under
lhe inlant's bedclothes, they fouud 1:1
bottles ot it.
Wonderful ingenuity is shown in
these efforts to evade the law. Equal
Iy wonderful it the desperate era.iug
which will induce a man to dive into a
lane or alley and drink whiskey from
a hollow walkiug ittek. After die-
covering a good manv of thete Irickt

outjseot everything. Walls, legs of

common cy* are solid, he comes in

lag liquor.
S/dney. N.S-.W., Jan. 25-Theplacing of contracts in Argentina by the
British Wur Oiifce, to supply meats
ami other produce for the troopi in
South Alrica, hit engendered extreme
irritation throughout Auiiralla. The
action of the Imperial authorities ia
regarded as an evidence ol indifference
to the claims of the colonies; as ill au
cording with the expression! of im-
jserial solidarity ; aa a poor re pay ment

London, Jan. 95.��� Mr. O'Connor,
Irith Nationalist, made a strong fighting speech, in support of Ur. Redmond's
amendment of j tate. day, te the Address in Reply to the Speech from the
Thione, at ibe opening of Parliament.
He was frequently cheered. Mr. O'Connor made a epecial point ot the rtoent
reception of the Irish delegation in the
United States, by president Roosevelt,
who, he eaid, held the same views.
The speaker luither aaierted that the
greatest of obstacles to a good nnder-
understandiug between tbe United
States and Great Britain, wastbeIrish
queetion whioh haunted aud wbich
would continue to haunt Great Britain
in all parti of the world. The Irish
memben, before now, had made ministries, and tbey would make and unmake more ministries. Landlordism
in Ireland was doomed. The Government knew that it wae beaten all over
Ireland on the queation of compulsory
laud purchase, and the present debate
marked the commencement ot a new
epoch in tbe progreti of Ireland.

Tht boy'i ateurapoi amused the manager, who Jokingly advlttd him to ice Mr.

The boy's manner Impressed tbe uill-
