By the little we tell of it week by week. Not one in
fifty of the happenings here gets a wor*d in our advertisements; they change too quickly even for printing
presses, and maybe we don't talk about the thinpfs you
wish most to hear of.
We've told you below ot special valiws in curtains
and hinted at the unusual prices of other lines, but at
best they are suggestions only, taken at random." We
can do much better face to face.

Friday waa evidently considered the
day for spring house-cleaning in parliament and the order paper waa nearly
cleaned off. Morning, afternoon and
night sittings were held nnd onlv SI
bills were left on the order papar. Most
of these will pass without further dis-
ctftfeion or be abandoned.

given a biz months' hoist.

isi-iiit policy, as^iii making this ruling
s he Speaker foreshadowed tbe late of
lieluickeu's famous, resolution which
i.as hung bre so loug, should it ever bo
called up.
Bill alter bill cn the order papci* was
called up to-day until the loan bill was
reached, when Curtis opened the ball
for the Opposition, or rather what is
left of the Opposition. It took him
nearly two lloura to reiterate all that
he has said so many times before on
this question, and then he sprung bis
amsiudmettt calling for Government
construction in the form of a resolution. This was defeated, as told above,
but committed many doubtful members
to the support of the bill. Nothing
new waa offered during a rather warm
discussion, when Helmcken moved the
adjournment of the debate, td be resumed at to-nigbl's sitting.
The Government has offered several
amendments to tl.e bill which has satis-
tied their bolting supporters, in which
provision hae been made for the ratification ot conn-nets by tbe legislature
instead of by the Executive council,
and in a few minor points making the
meaaura more workable, and th* bill
wiil uow pats all but unanimously.
The bill is hot receiving this almost
unanimous aupport because it is considered perfect, but becauseit is thought
to be immeasurably tbe beat that oun
be done under the circumstance*, and
especially aince it transpires that the
opponents ot tbe bill, and those who
led in the out cry against it weie engaged in one of the mnst gigantic
charter raongering deal* ever attempted
In Canada, one which would have made
several men rieh, and oue or two millionaire*.
The game wa* this :

FRIDAY, May 10. 1901.
There are some unscrupulous newspaper correspondents in this country
who, in order to advance certain interest*, are willing to lie and put a
false aspect on sffuirs it. connection
with  Ihe mining industries of B. C.
The Ciilgi.iv Herald recently |sub-
li.hod an ariicl. on the mining outlook
of B. C. thai ws. rank misrepresentation from start tn finish. Tl.e correspondent took advantage of a temporary thutdown bythe St. Eugene
Mining Co. of Moyio, to spread tlie
report that there was a gonorul collapse
of mining business in this province.
The St. Eugene Mining Co. have not
closed their mine for lack of business
but iu order to make some repairs to
the plant and after these are made
operations will continue as usual.
The ohjsict of these false reports aro to
try aud influence the Government at
Ottawa to grant' a bonus to the silver-
lead of the Slocan district. We think,
however, thut this end can be gained
without falsehood. If the silver-lead
industry really needs help from tbe
Government the bust way to accomplish the desired result is to tell the
truth and produce plain facts.
Another object which the circulators
of these false reports have in iiihul is
to iiidu.0 the Government of the province to take off the two per cent royally on refined oro. Notwithstanding
all that is being said against this tax
we still hold to the opinion that the
mining industry of B. C. is paying no
more, comparatively speaking, than
any oilier class in the community,
and we strongly ujibold the Government in levying this tax. Tho only
complaint we have ..gainst the Government iu this connection is that it
does uot go far enough. Natural resources should be taxed for the bened*.
of the people and we think tl.e Government might collect a larger share
of tuxes from speculators iu land. If
railway companies who get large grants
from tl.e Goverument were made to
pay a heavy tax on the land they hold
they would nut ue so keen to get it
aud it would be laden up by tax paying settlers. Here is a legitimate open
ing lor tbe Guvermne.it to raise additional taxes for suhool purposes, etc.,
without having to resort totho unpopular method of raising funds by
levying a |ioll tax.
Appellute Court for Kelaoii,
Viotoria, May 1.���Ou the report
stage of the supreme court bill, Houston moved that Nelson be substituted
for Vancouver ae the place for holding
sittings of the appellate court, and
was supported by Curtis und Green.
Tallow, Martin and McPhillips opposed.
Houston claimed that 41 per cent of
the cases that went to tbe court of
appeal originated in Kootenay, and
tbat if the court waa to be decentralized sittings should bo held where the
cases originated, and not in two places
so close together as Victoria and Vancouver.
Hawthornwaite, secindod by Oliver,
will .novo tomorrow that instead of
four sittings a year, tl.e appellate court
shall sit live times, and that one of
the sittings shall be at Nelson. Thi*
may carry. Tlie debate wus adjourned
on motion of McBride,
What The V. V. As E.Wnnts.
Victoria, May 1. -Tbere are no new
developments iu the railway situation.
The statements that come from Ottawa
na to what roads will be subsidised by
the Dominion, are taken as part of the
Hill plan campaign to coerce tlie Duns-
u.tiir Government in!,, voting a subsidy to the V V. &E.
The V. V. & E. crowd are fighting
for three points.
First���That no proposal from the
Cauailiun Pacific shall be considered
tor the Coast-to Kootenay railway subsidy.
Second -That the four per cent of
the gross earnings clause shall be
changed so that uuder no condition
shall the province get more than two
per cent on the amount of tbe subsidy
given, and tbat the interests shall be
only a second, and not a first charge,
on the revenue of the railways subsidized.
Third���That all agreements made
between the lieutenant-governor-in-
council and the ruilway companies
must be ratified by the legislature.
There was a little breeze in tbe legi*
lature recently over u suggestion that
tl.e E. ft N. laud might be donlared
subject to taxation. There is a good
deal of popular misconception in regard
to theso lauds. We suppose that a
good many people are under the impression that Mr. Dunsmuir or bis
father worked a scheme through the
house by which a large area of land
was exempted from taxation. Tbis is
quite opposed to tlie facts. The E. & N.
land grant was not promoted by either
Mr, Dunsmuir or any one on his behalf.
It was made il. pursuance uf un agree
ment between this province aud tl.e
Dominion, to which tiie railway com
pany wss not a party: To attempt to
vary the terms of the E. ft N. land
grunt here would be to alter, not a
contract made with the company, but
one between British Columbia and the
Dominion of Canada. The distinction
between such a jiusition anil that of a
contract between the provincial government, and a railway company is so
very broad that we can hardly think
Mr. Martin unaware of i>, and for this
reason we lie-ituto to give bim credit

principle which he snys influenced hi...

Iu view of the prominence given in

StEjgene mine in South East Kootenay the following from the Cranbrook
Herald of May 2nd will be read witb
As was expected. The St. Eugene
Mining company is steadily emj loyiug
more men, until iu a short time a full
force will bo employed, und tbe mine
be in full blast. For a short time
there was a shut down, only 40
or 50 men being employed, but iu a
few days the mill was opened up and
run iu the daytime. Last monday it
was decided to run the single shift in
the daytime and work the samo mou
half a night shift three nights a week.
The ore from the mill is being obtained
from the large dump below the Lake
Shore No. 1 tunnel. Tbua, although
Moyie may be comparatively quiet for
some time, in a few weeks .', is ex pec
ted that everything will be in full
swing and Moyie resume her place as

The Spokane Spokesman Review
prints the foregoing despatch from the
president ot the Greut Northern Railway.
The message contains two important
pieces of information.
Ip tbe first place, it mean* that the
Groat Northern Railway, and through
it the Grand Trunk Railway, will
have a direct abort route to Vancouver
and freo access to tbe Canadian ooast
trade. Mr. Hill wiil utilise the
Spokane Falls ft Northern Railway
(already built) to the boundary, and
build thence to connect with the
eastern terminus of the projected
V., V. ft E. at Midway, B.C. The
latter road has a bonus from the B. C.
Government, and Mr. Hill, together
with Mackenzie ft Mann, control the
charter. The realizing of these plans
involvee active competition with tbe
C. P. R��� both for through and intermediate traffic.
Iu tlie second place, the message
means that Republic camp, iu which
a vast amount of Canadiau money is
iir/estesl, is this S'asou lo have a railway whioh will curry the ores of tl.e
oamp to (be Cauadiau smelters iti th*

Ottawa, May 6.-The death of Sen
ator Ross, ol Quebec, leaves two vacan
cies in the Senate, the other one being
caused by the death of Senator Almon,
of Halifax. The Conservative majority
after these vacanoiea have been filled,
will be reduced to nine, and three or
these are found frequently supporting
the Government.
If the Liberals would attend they
have now a sufficient number to out
vote their opponent*, because there ate
a number of Conservatives, who, on
account of failing health cannot attend.

All women love flowers, aud every woman
who grows them knows tbat their health
depends on dally eare. Not alone are
water and sunshine necessary to tbe health
of the plant. Their leaves and roots must
be guarded from th. parasites which soon

beauty and retain ber strength far beyond
the period wben the average woman, looks
old and feel, older than sbe looks,
Of woman's preservation nf her beauty
lies in tbe intelligent care of tbe womanly
health. So close ia tl.e relation between
the health of the delicate womanly oigans
and the health of the whole body, that
