Tho Imperial Government have nsked the Dominion Government to disallow the anti-Japanage legislation of
the last session of the Province of
British Columbia, and the Dominion
Government has done so. Won't there
bo a row? The Province ought to
aud must insist on itt right* lo regard
to Asiatic lahor, and led by tho redoubtable Attorney-General we shall
expect to seo the leaders of public
opinion in this Province fight the mat
ter to the utmost. If tint people of
British Columbia consider Asiatic
labor should be restricted, and wb endorse that view, neither the British
nor tho Dominion Government has any
right to set at defiance the will of the
people. This principle is the foundation of the British constitution, and
must be maintained in this Province
as elsewhere.
Another scandal that we hear of is
the fact that tlio owners of the Ymir
mine have nworn iu special constables
and armed them with the alloyed intern tion of protecting the property of
the Company at Ymir against damage
by thu working miners owing to trouble over tbe 8-honr day. From what
we have seen of the working miners in
this Province they aro just as law
abiding as tbe mine owners, if uot
more so, and that they should ho ex-
usptrated by this sort of thing is a
matter that the authorities should not
pass by. The 8-hours day for miners
is a legitimate demand, eight hours is
long enougli for auy man to work underground at a time, nnd 8-hour shifts
form the best methods of working
mines. The matter of wages for eight
hours is a matter of equitable arrangement between the mine-owners and the
miners, nnd uo proprietory company
hns a right to threaten its employees
with special constables and guns unless tbere is somo justification for it.
There is no such justification in this
instance, Tho Attorney'General, and
his able Superintendent of Police, are
able to look after the interests of peace
and order iu this Province and no
private company has auy right to
arrogate to itself any auch powers.
Our opinion ti that the justices of the
Peace who lent themselves to this
piece of tyranny wero green-horns and
should be called to account.
The fact that Phillips A-a* kept in
prison for twelve mouths before trial
is u publio scandal, and a severe condemnation of tho admin 1st cation of
justice iu this Province. Phillij * has
been declared by a jury to be au innocent man, and thut a man, even if
guilty, Hhould have to lie iu gaol fur a
year awaiting trial is something that
wh hhould expect to hear of ill Russia
rather than in British Doiuluioin-., We
hope the Attorney General will have
the matter thoroughly investigated,

Referring to the Goldkn Eka Ai
Line, the Colonist says : "There has
been tall; from time to time of new
railway linen in Enst Kootenay. It
would 01*11 up a valley, rich in rosmir
ces and uloioKt unknown. There is
plenty of business for such a line, it is
said, and whether tbe new line ia
built the Canadian may be forced to
ahow its hand soon."
With the 44000 set aside by the
Dominion Government for the improvement of the Columbia river between
Uolden and Windermere a systematic
effort ought to lie made to have the
work done on tboM parts of the river
that most obstruct navigation at low
water. Last year tho voto waa largely
thrown away, and ar. oue pnrt of tiie
river the woik done resulted in more
harm than good.
Thanks to the efforts of Mr. Bostock
M.P., the Minister of the Interior
decided in favor of a reduction in price
of railway belt lands, of uo value fur
agricultural purposes or for the timber
growing thereon, from $5.00 per acre
to $1, This will, we know, be received
wilh great satisfaction by residents
withi.i the railway bolt. To miners
working claims within the belt this
reduction in price will be a very um
teiial boon.
Says the Sentinel; "An effort is
beliiii made by the Western members to
secure tbe appointment of a Railway
Commission' which would have some
practical control over tlte railroad cor
porations. When a resolution in favor
of suoh a Commission was under discussion iu tbe House a few days ago,
Mr. Bostock strongly endorsed It. Hu
spoke of the tyranny of Western roads
and thought the railway committee of
the privy council hardly competent to
keep them In check. He hoped the day
was not far distant when tbe Government would own all railways in the
oountry. Sir Wilfrid Laurier supported thi principle of a Commission ami
Intimated that ths Government had
under consideration a Bill dealing with
the matter. Sir Charles Tupper. leader
of the Opposition, flatly denounced the
resolution. He apparently has no
sympathy with the efforts of the west
to secure redress in tbe matter of excessive freight charges."

The week hits been one of the busiest and most lively pooh in Golden for
years, Tho cause of this was the outfitting ami departure of the parties for
the gold strike at Tete Jaune Cache.

Beaver. M. Dainard and 0. Hatch
took charge of her, and reached Beaver
early next morning, safely running the
rapids. Mr. D.tinnrd returned on
Sunday. At Beaver tho ''Good Luck"
was loaded up, but as it was found
she would not accommodate all the
cargo a raft had to be built to supplement the means of freight, and will be
towed along with the boat. At Stir

the supplies will be again portaged for

Canoe river, if the water is not too
high to take the boat up there. If it
is there will be no alternative but to
pack the supplies right on to Swift

Li the Division in geueral, there has
been very little actual development
work done this season (with oue er
two exceptions) beyond tho uecesnary
iiSi-piS-tineut work. All the well-known
claims Crown-granted are no doubt
bold by the owners at high figures.
Considering the large urea embraced

miles of trails and a large number of
well-known claims, ii i* to be very
Kb regretted thai they a;o allowed
stand uilo. 'i ne present .state of
affairs is liable to exist unless some
energetic company proves beyond
doubt that there is pay oro,then transportation facilities will uo doubt be
easily acquired,
Consideruble work hus been done in
tho Bugaboo district this summer, by
the Gulden and Fort Steele Development Companv, at the huad of the
creek, where s.veral claims are located
showing mineral, and several tons of
ore are now ou thu dump ready to ship.
Some trouble was caused by the
water encountered iu one of tho tunnels, and probably a difforcut system
will have to bo practiced iu order to
thoroughly tost the property. The
great distance from transportation facilities, in this case and many others,
is of course a drawback, but will be
overcome when mitlicient work is doue
to prove the property. There is undoubtedly a good showing on the surface, from which assays huve beeu
obtained up to I1C0 to the ton.

Remarkable Rescue.
Mrs. Michael Curtain, PlainUeld, III,
makes the statement, that she caught
cold, which settled on her Jungs; she
was treated for a month by her family
physician, but grew worse. Ho told
her she was a hopeless victim of consumption and that no medicine could
cure ber. Her druggist suggested Dr.
King's New Discovery for Consumption; she bought a bottle and to her
delight found herself benefitted from
first dose. She continued its use and
aftor taking six bottles, found herself
sound and well; now does her own
housework, and lias well as sho over

five miles to bo compleud before the
mine is reached; possibly next summer may see it converted into a wagon
road. The locatioa is good and docs
away entirely with the different summits which were encountered by tho
old route up tbe Spilliiimchoue.
The following report taken from the
"Golden Era" is said tn give a good
account of the work done up to date : ���
"Tho open cut on th-pBoBton shows up
a body of ore extending over a width
of "J2J feet, the ore being galena interspersed with gray copper. At HO feet
below this cut a tunnel (No. 1} has
been driven 192 feot. At a distance of
L:i0 feet from the mouth it cutt the
Boston lead and follows on the western
wall of the ore-body which was exposed nt the surface in the open cut.
At a point f)4 feet from the month, a
vein of rich galeua was cut. Two
drifts have been run north-west from
the tunuel, and one north-east, one of
which cu s the Boston lead at le feet,
another i  in 01 feet and om* a string
er which shows splendid ore. About
300 feet west of the tunnel an opouiiij;
has been mado on the western system
of leads, which forms so prominent a
feature of the property, and a rnnwl
has been ruu in ou them for n distance
of 35 lee:. One of these leads Is a
contact vein, two to four feet wide,
running with a porphyry dyke aud is
a particularly promising lead.
No. 2 tunnel is 750 feet below tunnel No. 1, and is run to develop the
Bennison lead, a body of gold-bearing
quartz. After running along thia lead
fer 158 feet the tunnel crosscuts it,
aod the crosscut will hc continued this
summer to cut tho Boston and other
leads to tbe south-east; this will practically develop the lead to a depth of a
thousand feet.
Assays made oa ore from the western system of veins show gold, silver,
lead, and coppor.
The property is now at that stage at
which very little more work can lis
dons till proper means of transportation are obtained, so that machinery
can be got in and the proporty placed
on a working basis."
The following work is hIbo reported
as having been done on Ottertail crook:
29 feet of tunnel mid !J7 feetof shaft on
the Bun day claim; and 70 feet of tunnel on tbo Hercules.
On the Middle Pork of tbe Sptlltma-

There has been considerable activity
in the Division this year, due not so
much to actual development work en
to tbe number of new locations with
good surface showings, which have
drawn considerable attention, resulting
several sales, offers, aud bonds
taken up and, in the ordinary course
of events, next summer should see a
big change in this Division,
Tbere are many good locations on
which no assessment work bad to be
done this year and it might be considered out of place to mention them before tbey are developed.
Considerable work has been done
this year on the Pretty Girl Group, the
property of tl.e New Golden British
Columbia, Limited, England. Thie
group is situated on Boulder Creok, n,
tributary of Horsy Thie**. A tunnel
has been driven in li'ih feet, tupping
the vein about DO feet below the surface, where a. Shaft is being sunk er
the ore to ' ���wjinn.-ct witli the tubnel.
This is a copper-silver proposition. A1
thousand pound* of the ore was shipped to England for a mill test, and is
said to have run $(i5 to tbe ion. Judging from the present indications, tho*
outlook is Very euconragirjg, and, in
all probability, permanent camps will
be put in next spring and development
work continued on a larger bcale. Tbo
same Company also own several other
locations of a promising nature, but so
far only assessment work has been
done on them.
The Hot Punch, on North Fork
Toby Croek, bonded to Messrs. Collett
& Starblrd, is looking well, An inclined shaft of 75 feet and a 35-foot
tunnel have boen driven. The quartz
lead is about 4 feot in width, with a
pay streak of 18 inches of solid galenn,
carrying coppor and gold, Tho ledge
is uncovered for about 500 feet, and
shows ore the entire length.

Both sections of tho committee on
laws of warfare of the peace conference, met separately yesterday and began the examination of the subject sub'
uiitted to them, tho Bed Cross section
discussing paragraphs o nud 6 of the
circular of Count Muruvteff, the Bus-
siuu minister of foreign uffuirs, and the
Brussell's conference section discussing
paragraph 7. Both sections met subse
quently and discussed the question of
conference, as regards a scheme for the
revision of tbe Geneva convention,
known as the Murguier scheme. The
Morgnier schema comprises modifications of the Geneva convention in connection with wounded and sick prisoners, int'iiiliers nt' the military hoHpital
service, convoys for the wounded, ambulances, hospitals, property belonging
to neutralized persons, religious and
medical stall's and kindred subjects.
The scheme applies equally to lund and
sea warfare. It was proposed to submit tho scheme to another committee
for revision, aud the question then wus
mined whether the conference whs com-
pentent to deal with tbe matter.
Those who took a negative view argued
that the conference had decided in the
principle, and all governments represented bad agreed tliat nothing should
he submitted to the conference beyond
tho eight points in the circular of
Count Muruvieif. They contended if
conference infringed this rule, u precedent would bn ereuteil letidii,,* to nu��
morons difficulties, inolndlng probably,
the springing of the Armonlail, Macedonian und similar questions mi the
oonfereno. It was also pointed out by
th opponents of the proposal to refer,
thnt inasmuch us the Murguier scheme
dealt mostly with the wounded uud
with hospitals, it would bo Impossible
to discuss the propoEed mod Mentions
effectually without the co operation of
doctor j, who alone were capable of deciding tbe many points in issuo. As a
matter of fact, there was no man of
medical training among the dclegatet-*,
Tho committee finally adjourned
without reaching a decision, There is
no truth in the statement that a proposal hus beeu submiitcd to the conference to abrogate the provisions of the
declaration of Paris, 1880, regarding
protection to private property in the
time nf wur.
; London, Mny 28 ���The Daily News
says: The British aud American proposals, though simple, are more practicable than the scheme of M. De Muar-

is likely that France und Russia and
even Germany will ultimately agree
with them."

Montreal, Juno 1.���The strike of the

the strikers. Mr. Lowe, organizer ol'
tlm Trackmen's union, returned to tbe

Quebec, June 1.���The professors of
Morriii college have been notified that
their services will not be required after
the expiration of the collegiate year
181111-iiiou. It is not believed there is
any intention of closing the institution,
but it wus deemed advisable to give
notico because tbe expenditure is at
present very much great:r than the
revenue. Principal Me Rae is likely'to
visit tho various parts of the Dominion
during the summer in the interests of
the institution, uud Dr. Warden, of tbo
Presbyteriun church, is here at present,
from Toronto to endeavor to interest
(Quebec's business men iu the college.
Tbe college is really a purely private
institution and the church is only interested in a general way in its success.

the millers and grain dealers of the
province will meet iu the board of

such a course would materially injure
the milling interests iu Outurio; tbe
decision of the meeting on the nintter
will ne presented to the council of the
board of trade at a meeting to be held
later in the afternoon.

A plain, apt uud eicellent illustration
of tbe popular expression, "tbe fortune
of war," ie thnsiognlor fact that Major
General Leonard Wood, the present
iuilitary governor of Santiago province.
is now in command of bis former commanding officer. This strange state of
iiffnirs is explained thnswise:
Jnst a little more than two years ago
General Wood was surgeon of the Fifth
Kegiment infantry, with tbe rank of
(tiptain, and after he hnd left tbe service to practice medicine in civil life at
Washington he wns remembered fondly
hy tbe entire regiment as nn officer wbo
was fond af athletics, especially foot
hull and wrestling. At the opening of
the late war he was appointed colonel
of the rough riders, and for gallant
nnd efficient services rendered he earned
his present rank and appointment. During the entire war the Fifth was the
only regular infantry regiment that did
nut have a chance to see service, but after the protocol hnd been signed and the
lighting troops were lieing sent home
the Fifth wns detailed lo do guard duty
lit Santiago nnder General Wood.
Ho it now happens tbat General
Wood's old colonel is under bis command, as are also other officers who
used to rank him when he was only a
captain. Thnt Is the way tbe world
moves np and down. Verily, there is
much troth in tbe saying that "He who
takes yonr orders today may be yonr
commander tomorrow. "���New York

line of 2,500 Spanish infantry, waiting
to receive them with cannon at the angles, bis horse was swept from under
him by a charge of canister and he was
left on foot, 80 yards from the Spanish
lines. 'I saw I could be of no further
me,' he remarked, in telling tbe story
to tbe writer hereof, 'so I took the saddle and bridle off my dead horse and
walked off tbe field.'
"Think of that I His horse had just

Discussion of a Bill RegalaUag tbe
Packing of Apples for Export-
Allen Labor Law.
Ottawa, May 81.���The honse of commons yesterday put through committee
the bill which changes the regulations
respecting the inspecting of ooal oil
and Nupth-. in suoh a way tbat the
price of oil will be reduced, though the
customs protection afforded on Canadian oil will remain unchanged.
There was a prolonged discussion
over a bill to amend the weights and
measures act. It provides that all apples packed iu Canada for sale by the
barrel shall be packed either in cylindrical veneer barrels as specified or in
ordinary barrels of specified measurements. It also provides that any one
who suffers or exposes for sale, or who
packs for exportation, supplies by barrel otherwise than in accordance with
the foregoing provisions shall be liable
to a penalty of 35 oeuts per barrel. A
number of members urged that the bill
should npply only to apples intended
for export because otherwise furmera
who sell apples locally in sugar and
flour barrels of varying size would be
liable to a penalty. In reply to this it
was stated that a similar law was now
in force. The only change ia allowing
ths use of cylindrical veneer barrels
aud one with regard to barrel measurement. Finally, tbe bill was allowed
to stand, in order that members may
consult their constituents witb regard
to it.
Before the question dropped, Mr,
McMillan, of Huron, asked the minister to incorporate in the bill a provision tbat eggs for export must weigh at
least 1 1-3 lbs. to the dozen. The minister promised to consider the matter.
Mr. McCleary brought up the question of the enforcement of tbe alien
labor law. He said tbat on Saturday
Inspector De Barry, of Buffalo, had
sent back a yonng Canadian who had
gone to Buffalo simply to visit a relative. He said it was understood that
the Anglo-American conference had arranged that neither country should enforce alien labor legislation, pending
the conclusion of the conference, and
said if the Americans were not going
to live up to the understanding, Canada should take steps to protect herself.
The premier said that at the conference there was a purely informal understanding that both aides would as
much as possible diecourage the enforcement of alien laws. He was now
in communication with Washington respecting the case of enforcement by De
Barry. He believed the reports respecting ail these cases had been much
exaggerated, but he had asked for a
statement of the facts under oath in
order that he might place tbe matter
before tbe Washington anthorities. If
tbe case cited by Mr. McCleary was
correct, and the man was sent back
simply when he was on a visit to a relative, it was an abuse of the authority. The American alien law did not

Toronto, May 31.���Grand Master N.
O. Wallace, delivered Ms address to the
Grand Orange lodge of British North
America this afternoon. He referred
to the extensive immigration into Canada and hoped the immigrants would
be absorbed and assimilated by the
British elements. There waa a danger,
however, aud it was essential that
Orangemen who constituted the bulwark of tbe state shoild exert themselves to extend to the still wider
bounds of influence the activities of
the association. Mr. Wallace referred
to the agitation for the amendment of
the coronation oath, whioh had been
vigorously promoted by branches of the
Roman Catholic Irish society. He
strongly condemned aay tampering
with the oath. If we begin by amending the coronation oath, he said, because, as is pretended, It wounded the
susceptibilities of a certain denomination in the land, where will the matter
end? What guarantee have we that,
having broken down one outpost, having captured the outer fortress, the
same spirit will not lead these people
to attack the very citidal itself, and
demand tbat the entailing of the succession to the throne to Protestants
shall be repealed. "There is a deep
design, which seems hidden behind,
and for my part, looking back upon the
history of Britain for two centuries,
since the accession of King William the
third, I unhesitatingly declare myself
against this movement, proclaimed to
be harmless as a dove, but fraught

A Joke oa tbe Jup.
The Japanese students at our colleges
find the American sense of humor as it
is expressed by the other students about
them a somewhat peculiar thing, but
not at all hard to understand. In fact,
it is quite simple and elementary. A
Japanese gentleman who wus a student
at Harvard not long ago relates that lie
was asked by some of his American fellow students to "teach them some Japanese words." He began by giving
them "Oood morning" in Japanese.
This phrase is represented in Japanese
by a word which in English equivalents
cannot be more closely represented than
bythe word "Ohio." The boys were
interested and promised to remember it.
Next morning, when the Japanese
student came to the lecture room, he
fonnd a group of the boys gathered to
give him the morning salutation iu
' 'Pennsylvania I" shouted one of
"Kentucky 1*' yelled another.
"Virginia I" "New Hampshire!'
"Rhode Island!" still others called.
But not one of them said "Ohio!" It
was the American idea of a great joke.

A Midnight Encounter.
Brown worked years ago lu t. glass factory at New Castle, Pa. His turn came
off at 1 o'clock In the morning, and getting home at that hour was attended with
somo difficulties. In those days tho traveling circuses had no large trains of cars
to carry their outfit, hut wero content to
haul their few vans along the country
roads, driving their docile animals in the
front of tho caravan.
Brown was coming from work one night
and, being a man of meditative mind, had
his head bowed as he trudged toward his
home. All at once he became conscious
thut he was up against the biggest thing
ho had ever encountered, Hosuwasimke-
like thing at his sido, again over his head
and again directly in front of him. He
put out his hands to fend off the expected
attack and grasped two hornlike things
that caused the sweat to break out all over
his body.
He wuh conscious that lie had met the
evil one, but he did not know what use he
had for a glass worker. His suspense was
relieved by hearing tho voice of a man In
the rear of thu nbjeut of his fear shouting:
"Qlt out of tho road of them elephants!
Did ye nover see a circus?"
Brown was so badly scared tbat he did
not go to work for several days and will
not now attend a circus on a free ticket.���

other day. He was walking down Pry-
tiiniii street uud noticed what seemed to
be the members of a household assembled around a small bonfire in a yard
adjoining a cottage. They were apparently deeply engrossed in somo nnnsnnl
proceeding, and a very peculiar, dense
black smoke was arising from the lire.
The scene was so mid that the good
man stopped to look, when, to his horror, a half grown boy in the crowd suddenly produced a large Maltese cat aud
thrust the animal directly iuto the heart
of tbe smoke.
"I wonder if that will do it." said a
woman who was looking on.
"Oh, this will kill anything!" replied
tbe boy. with a heartless laugh.
The humanitarian felt his blood run
cold. Tho dense volume of vapor screened the wretched creature, bnt iu his
mind's eye he beheld its agonized contortions, and he could hardly find words
to voice his indignation.
"You cruel villain!'* he screamed,
"release that cat immediately!"
The boy looked around with open
month. "Mind your own business, yon
old lunatic!" he replied with asperity.
"My own business!" exclaimed the
member of the Society For the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, boiling
over with rage. "This is my business,
sir I Take that cat ont of the smoke or
I'll have yon in the parish prison!"
The boy glared at him in apparent j
stupefaction, but the woman began to
laugh. I
"We ain't hurting the cat," she said. |
diving into the smoke and drawing
forth the animal by the tail. "Seel It's
our poor old Tom, uud he's been dead
and stuffed these five years! We're get

The humanitarian's jaw dropped. He
wiped his forehead, and the group snickered andibly.

Tlio following is Mrs. Kcirstead's

"With gratitude I can testify to the
wonderful curative powers of Burdock
Blood Bitters. Eight years ago our little
son, Freddy,Vas afflicted with salt rheum
and was In a dreadful condition. His legs,
from the soles of his feet to his body, were
entirely raw, and ran a bloody water,
which appeared to burn and itch until he
was often In preat agony,
" After trying several remedies, we resolved to give B.B. B. a trial.

of the second bottle, and from that time

They Reach
The Kidneys.
T.Ir. Conrad Beyer's opinion
No one ean be healthy with the kidneys
In a diseased or disordered state. The
poisonous Uric Acid which it is their
duty to filter out of the blood, is carried
into the system and produces Kheuma-
tism, Headaches, Hack aches and hundreds of ills and ailments.
Any one who has the slightest suspicion
that the kidneys are not acting right
should take Doan's Kidney Pills. They
are th* most effective kiduey remedy
known. Mr, Conrad Beyer, at E. K.
Snyder's Shoe Store, Berlin, Out., bears
this out when he says:
' 'Anyone suffering with kidney troubles
cannot do better than take Doan's Kidney Pills, for they cured my wife who
hus been utllietied with pain in the back
and other kidney troubles for a long
time. They have helped a great many
of my acquaintances in this town, and I
must say they ure the medicine that
reach tie kidneys with the best effects."

How tbe Moon Cllmbe Mount Hood,
From the point of view of most Port-
landers the moon was launched the
other evening on its jonrney to the
zenith squarely from the peak of Mount
Hood. The glow of the setting sun had
hardly faded from the big mountain
when his substitute poked its nose over
the north slope and sat for a second on
the shoulder half way np to thn summit,
like the earth mi the shoulder of Atlas.
Then it journeyed diagonally up tbe
slope till it reached the peak, dipping a
little, so thnt tho rugged outlines of
tho mountain stood ont sharply against
the deep red sphere. The moon left the
summit like a vast balloon, making a
little southing all the while. It seemed
to hang suspended a few minutes before going farther, Imt soon gathered
headway and journeyed forth into the

engaged in railroading on the Lake
Superior eeetion of the C.P.R. I was
exposed to all kinds of weather, aud as
a rexnlt sustained a severe artact of
rheumatism, whioh all but crippled
me, and from which I suffered much
agony. I spent more than a hundred
dollars on doctors and for medicine,but
was gradually getting worse and finally had to quit work. At this juncture
the dootor told ine be did not think
medioine could curo ine, and advised
mn to go to some hot apring*. I took
bin udvioe and went to the Hurristou
Hot Springs, iu British Columbia,
where I remained for eight weeks under the cure of the house physician,
but experienced no benefit. I then
went over to Taeoma, and took a
course at the Green ttlver Hot Springs,
hut with no better result. Completely
diecouraged I returned to my home in
Quebec, and weut to fanning, but the
rheumatism bothered uie so much that
I could scarcely do my work. Dr,
Williams1 Pink Pills were recommended to me and I decided to give thein a
trial After taking a few boxen I
found tbey were helping ine and I continued their une until 1 hnd taken sixteen boxes, by winch time every
vestige of ih�� trouble which had bothered me for yean, aud had cost me so
much money, had disappeared. It i*
now more than a year and a half since
I discontinued the o��e of the pills and
during that time I have not had the
slighteftt symptom of the trouble,
which I regard as the very best evidence that the cure is permanent.

mportant Changes to go Into Effect with the
Installation of a Fast C.P.R. Transcontinental Service.
Three Daily Trains Between Winnipeg and:
Brandon.���Daily Service on the Glen-
boro Branch; also to Mihnedosa.
The name of a train does not ordinarily signify much, but in tho "Imperial Limited" of the Caundiau Pacific
Railway and the connections which
will be formed therewith it ia safe to
say that Western Canada will derive
more advantage than from anything
which has been dono since tho establishment of the transcontinental service. This train, which will mulce the
run from tidewater to tidewater in
four days, the fastest time heretofore
made across the American continent-
will undoubtedly diveri u large share
of the business between the Atlantic
aud tho Pacific which has hitherto
pone via the United States routes, as
the time between New England aud
the east and the American coast cities
will be quicker than via Chicago.
Thia service ovet Canada's great
thoroughfare will afford strangers an
excellent opportunity of visiting Winnipeg and deriving a knowledge of our
western country. Probably, however,
the improved service will bo of more
advantage and much more appreciated
by the business men of the west. The
���Imperial-Limited" ie to be a daily
train, leaving Winnipeg at 10 p.m.,
reuohing Toronto at 1 p.m, nnd Montreal at 6 p.m. the second day, thus
making the journey iu forty and forty-
four hours respectively.
The train reaches Winnipeg from
the east at 6.30 a.m. and leaves for the
coast at 7.16, reaching Calgary at
breakfast time next morning and Vancouver in a little ovor two days.
An express service has also been arranged ever the Crow's Nest route to
the Kootenay country, whereby the
journey to K-Mnou will be made in 40
and Russian i*-ui iti hours.
This improved service will also
shorten up the time via the lake rout* -
to tho wast as - pusseogers will not require tn leav�� Winnipeg until 10 p.m.,
mabipo coornectioo with steamers at
Port VilliuCT'-ihe following morning
and reaching the east oa the second i
morning thereafter.
The chaBffW in the local train ser-
vico in Manitoba will be of a marked
improvement. A new train will leave
Winnipeg fer Moose Jaw at 8.30 a.m.
daily for thfa accommodation of local I
business���th�� "Limited" only stepping
at a few pointa���aud will reach Winnipeg from jfoose jaw nt 7 p.m.
A new local train will alao leave
Brandon at 8 a.m. and returning leave
Winnipeg rt-tf p.m.
A daily service will also be established on the Glenboro branch to
Souris, wor-Wln connection with the
M. & N. W;Co: there- will elso be a
daily train ro and from Miunedosa.
A service �� for-the accommodation of
Rat Portitg* business will also be established ao-soen as the season opens.
Tbe ruwning time of the limited between Winnipeg and Portage la Prairie will be obe hour  and  36 minutes;;
Brandon 3 hours and 40 minutes; Rat
Portage $ hours and 45 minutes.
These   atfbve changes take.effect on i

Kilmarnock, May $2. -The people of
this section ure among the shrewdest
and most level-headed people iu Canada. They know a good thing wheu
they meet it. And when they "run up
against" a good thing they make use
of it. That's the reason Dodd'e Kidney Pills are used iu nearly every
household in the county.
It is nothing unusual to hear of
several cures of Kidney Disease, every
day, bv Dodd's Kidney Pills, in this
neighborhood. The medicine is In
universal use. It has the record of
having completely cured every case of
Bright's Disease, Dm betes. Dropsy,
Lumbago, Rheumatism, Paralysis,
Heart Failure, Urinary Diin'nsj, Diseases of Women, or Blood Impurity.
iu which it has beeu used. Our people claim that it is tbe only medicine
on earth that  will cure these dUt'iises.
A still further chiai is made by
those who have used Dodd's Kidney
Pills. Thoy assert emphatically (und
to speak the truth, they bring conviu
cing proof) that Bright's Disease and
Diabetes are as easily cured, if Dodd's
Kidney Pills are used, as is a common
Mrs. Peter O'Brien, of Smiths Falls,
whose oure is tho latest reported, lias
many friends in Kilmarnock, and her
complete recovery amaze*, while It delights them. Her case was a sever*
one of Kidney Disease, and Dodd's
Kidney Pills worked h wonderfully
quick and complete cure.
Dodd's Kidney Pills are sold by all
druggists at fifty cents a box,six boxes
