Letter Prom South Afrioa.
Veereuinging, July 18, 1901.
Mb. D. Moroaii,
Dear Sir and Bro.:-I take pleasure
in writing a tew lines to let you know
I am well and that the Boers have hot
caught me yet. I hope this letter will
find you nil in good health. We have
had some exciting times with the
Boers. On the llth of July wo got
into a regular hornet.;' nest of Boers
and we had a hot corner for a while.
We had four killed and four wounded
and lost 17 horses. One of tho boys
who enlisted at Golden -Harry Sjn-oule,
oi Fort Steele,-got killed. Hi was a
fine young fellow and well likeJ. The
others,were from different parts oi the
province, But the Boers did not have
it i.H l|.tir_own way as we killed 25
and wounded about 40. We did pretty
woll as there was about twenty 10 one
in favor of the Boers. However, I did
not get hurt myself aud consider myself lucky. I think tbis would be a
good country 10 live in if the war was
over, but on acoount of tbe unsettled
state of affairs it is not so good aa it
might be. Martial law il in force all
over tba country aud one cannot travel
aronnd without a past. I have been in
several parts of the oountry and liko
it very much.. Wa are no: far from
Johannesburg and it is a most beautiful city und 1 would like to be statioi.-
ed there. There are lott ot Boer wid
ows out here and it won't be liard to
gat a woman aftet ths war. If I csn
run across a rich one I thiuk I had
better try and make a mash. Some of
the Boer girls are very handsome mid
make good wives, so I am told.
I like my job here fairly well, so far.
Of course, everything is not to my liking but I will havo to put up with it.
Hedley Dart and Albert Coliiua are in
tbe hospital with (over. They have
Iweu sick nearly evor since they cause
bere, but I think they vs 111 soon be out
again,
*******
I suppose you had a big time osi tbe
12th ot July. There was no celsibra-
tion bere, It was on the llth we had
tbs fight, aud on the 12th we hud five
fu;.crtt.s-four of our own meu and one
native scout���so it was a rather sad
celebration for us, for I waa woll
well acquainted with all of tbem. I
will give you the uaiues of the four
tbat were killed: Harry Sproulo, Fun
Steele; Chas. Begg, Rovelstoke j. Sari, .
Major Chalmers, Moosomin, aud J.
Sykes. The wouuded weie us I.jIIows:
Larry Hardliner aud Harry Uravtly,
Nelson, B C; T. Curtis,, Ro����laud, uud
D. Mclutyre, Fort Steele.
It was s-wtluiaied that there were
about 2,000 Boris aud ouly about isO
British. So I think we put up a y. r'y
creditable fi.[ht considering tba tig
odds.
1 will now close, wishing you ana
vour family and ail my at-qtiaiutaocts
.the very best pf luck,
I remain, yours rs-a.seutltilly,

THE TRACKMEN'S STRIKE.
We nre glad to note that both the
Toronto Globe and tha World are on
the side of the trackmen in their strike.
If is time the Government took a hand
in this fight for if it is much longer
es-iitinued the visit of the Royal party-
will most assuredly be declared off. It
cannot be expected that people with
even ordinary common sense will risk
their lives on a road that is not properly takeu care of by competent workmen. The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and York will never risk iheir
precious necks over the C.P.R. line
iu itspreseut condition and it is doubtful if even now the strike were settled
tlse track could be put in safe condition
by the time they are ready. It is said
that even the chief officials ot the road
will not travel on the line at night.
It is only since this strike began
that the public have learned whnt an
* important pnrt of tbe railway organization the trackmen renlly are. On
them devolves the duty of inspecting
thn roadbed and maintaining it in such
a sbs|H> as to ensure the public safety.
The C. P. R sny they have mon
enough to do the work of the strikers,
hut the number of accidents that have
rec'.nly heen reported is not consistent
with this statement. As a matter of
fact, the roidbed of the C. P. 11. is in
very bad shape; so much so that all
sensible people are avoiding the line,
although it is said all such peo|sle
formerly patronized It. Not only do
the men perform a very responsible
duly, but a certain amount ot skill is
ii.uessary is. tl.e discharge of their
dune.. The C.P.R. has recently found
Oul thai ordinary unskilled labor can-
iiui be entrusted to perforin the work of
llie trackman. He must be trained
for the work. We think, therefore,
thut ibe trackmen are fully justified
lu uakiii,. better pay, und (or the re-
coji.fliou of th'.lr union, jjst as the
trainmen, tl.e firemen, Ihe engineers.
I ie teltigrapbers have Iseen recognized
Tuai ll.Cj are willing to have their
claims left to arbitration shows that
they believe in the justice of their demand.
Nosv that the census has been takeu
tint substantial increase of population
iu the west aud B. C. is shown, we
think there can be no further excuse
on the part of Il.e Domlning Govern
mens for refusing Cabinet representa
tinn to this province British Columbia is the only province in the Dominion that is not represented in the
mnke np of the Government! G. B.
Maxwell, M P. for Bnrrartl, as senior
representative, should be gfveu a seat,
and. we believe, would prove a worthy
mem'er.

A STRONG APPEAL.
Montreal, Aug. 20, 1901
To the citizens of Canada:
The K"port of tbe General Chairmen
of the other Orders who were supposed
to rppre.eiit employees in other Ds>
partraents on the C. P. Railway is
vary unjust to tbe Trackmen who are
.sniggling for a fair share cf the
wealth they help to create, and alt
honorable settlement.
Their contention that the Settlement
proposed by the General Manager is a
fair one will, no doubt, be questioned
hy nil fair-mjnded men.
During tlte telegraphers- strike in
1896 a similar basis ol settlement was
proposed by the company to the Conciliation Committee who were trying
to effect a settlement between the oompany and the telegraphers. In commenting upon it In their report, thej
following paragraph appears!
"We saw at once that this proposi
tion would never be accepted by the
telegraphers for the reason that it left
practically little protection for a grtat
number of the striking operators and
agent nud provided that men employed
during the strike were considered permanent employes and should be retained in their service in preference
to men who have gone out on strike."
Tlie gentlemen who were acting as
conciliators had too much respect for
the grand officers, and the committee
representing the telegraphers to even
present tbe terms proposed by the
company to them, and in lieu thereof
they prepared what they considered a
fair basis of settlement whioh was accepted by both parties to the controversy.
Tho Grand President of Railway
Trackmen, with the consent of the
committee representing the mainten-
ance-of-way men on the C. P. R., has
proposed 10 submit the differences
between the company and the men, to
impartial arbitration. That should
convince all fair-minded jseople lhat
our President is not in the employ ol
Competing transportation companies,
and that if our committee hare made
unreasonable demands upon the company, they are willing to abide by Im
jtartiai arbitration.
Instead of weakening our position,
the report of the Conciliation Coin'
mitten will strengthen it. As to thu
insult offered to onr President demanding that he should leave Montreal
within twenty-four hours, this simply
increases our confidence in him, and
take it as a compliment paid lo his iu
telligencs, and. ability to correctly advise the committee. Messages and
letters are being received from members
of the Order on all pans ot the system
assuring our Presislent that he would
have the continued support ami confidence ot the men. Why the conciliation committee reoommended unconditional surrender upon the pnrt of
the trackmen is a question I wilt not
attempt to answer. Every Brother*
hood man I have met is indignant over
the action taken by the general Chairman, and eai-ecinlly at Ihe insult offered through them to President Wilson.
If they were influenced to take such a
course by the General Manager, I pro-
did lie will discover hi a short time
tliat he has created a "boomerang" for
himself. The end is not yet by any
means. The full Protective Board of
Ra I way Trainmen is in Montreal, and
members of ibe other Orders are arriving on every truln. It is reasonable
10 suppose that as soon as the facts In
the case are known tuch stejis will bs
taken as mny be necessary to afford
protection lo their lives, and the lives
of the trasfjjjlling publio.
I have just returned from a trip out
west,
Ti-MksMOa' Ultimatum.
Montreal, Aug. 19.-Having received
and considered the above proposed
terms of settlement the trackraens'
oosnmiltee on Saturday issned a mani
festo entitled "The rock on which th.
C. P. R. traokmen stand." It reads
as follows:
The principal conditions nnder which
the oommittee representing tha maintenance of way men on the C. P. R..
will make settlement with the company
are as follows:
1st. All men now on strike who hav*
not been eonvteted of crime in connection with the strike shall be reinstated in their former positions witb
out prejudice.
2nd. An sgreement must be signed
by the proper official of the C. P. R.
setting forth the terms and conditions
of employment of mainteiniice ol way
men wbieh will proteot them against
unjust discrimination by way of ihe
company's officials.
3rd. A reasonable and uniform in
crease in wsges must be granted snffi<
oient at least to make the purchasing
power of a day's wagss equal to what
i! was two years ago, or before the
general rise in prices. ^^B_^

TUB WRECK OFTHE ISLANDER.
A repott has been circulated in American papers to the effect lhat the
pilot and captain of the Islander wee
very much under the influence of liquor
at ihe time of the disaster. We publish below 1 he verdict of 1 he coroner's
jury, held at Juneau, Alaska, by United States officials and citizens, and
believe it will have tho desired effect
of jsutting the truth before the citixeus
of both countries:
United States Commissioner H. H.
Foisom, at Juneau, held au inquest
on the remains of Dr, J, Duncan before
the vessel left for Vancouver, and s
verdict was returned exonerating the
Captain and ail connected with! the
Islander from blame. The copy of
the verdict sent down by Purser Blah
op wss ss follows:
"In the matter ot the Inquest the
body of Dr. J. A. Duncan, deceased:
We, the jury impanelled and sworn
iii the above entitled manner, find lhat
tbe nam* of th* deceased is J. A.
Duncan, lhat lis came to his death on
the 15thof A-igust, 1901, by the wreck-,]

BIG PRICES AS WELL AS BUMPER
CROPS.
Toronto World;  Scarcely let)* important tban the amount bt our great
crop is the price that will b* realised
for it.   Canada seems to b* espwiaUy
fortunate this year,   because she not
only has an unusually larg* orop ot
grain, but tha prospects for big pries*
are very encouraging.   Th* shortage
of wheat in Europe has bs��en pretty
definitely ascartaiued by tbis time.  An.
suthentio es'imat* of  thii shortage
has just been published by thn Mark
Lana Express.   According to this an
thority, tb* wheat crop of Franc* will
uot  exceed  300,000,000 bushels Ibis
leaving a deficiency of 60,000,000 bub-
els to be supplied bv foreign countries
The total yield in the great territory pf
northwestern Europe is placed 896,000,-
OOO bushel*, and th* requirement* for
consumption at 664,000,000 bushsls,
leaving a balance ot 868,000,000 boih-
el* to be imported.   The  Mark Ltne
Express further ppints out that of tii*
wheat exporting countries India and
Egypt will hav* nothing thi* yur lor
export, while the surplus of Ruasis,
Argentina, snd the Balkan States will
be exhausted in supplying the irapoit
requirements of  Italy, Austria-Hun
gary, China nnd thaSpanish peninsula.
The meaning of all thi* i* lhat Europe
will   hsve to look  entirely  to  the
United States and Canada lo supply
its large storage in wheat.   Using up
the situation in sn article based on ths
Mark Lane estimate, the New York
Commercial  Advertiser   lay* "there
will be ready market for Ihe whole of
ihe immense balance whicli this country wiil have for export, and the Amerioan farmer will be kbit to nam* hi*
own price, ss was the esse in 1897-98."
According   to   the   ssme  authority,
" American Jarmers ara sure of receiving prices so far above tbe avei age that
wben taken In conjunction with th*
enormous production the  aggregate
profit* will be second only to the unparalleled season of 1898.   Fonr years
ago these conditions laid the foundation for the greatest ern  of agricultural and industrial development this
conntry has sversesn.   Ths same conditions recurring now ar* a guarantee
to the continuance of the existing prosperity which are  (ar  mora effective
than anything which appeared iu the
situation of a month sgo.   .   .   .Itis
fair to reason now thst ths Increases!
profits from wheat will go far, towards
offsetting the losses to the farming
communities   from  ths  shortage  in
corn."
If such good fortune is in store for
th* United Ststes farmer the Canadian
agriculturist will fare even latter, for
for while there ha* beeu n big shortage
of oorn in th* formar country Canada
ha* good crops ill round. Thademsnd
from Europe has already set in. That
th* European countries in keenly
alive to tbeir dependent position is
shown in th* extraordinary export
movement of th* put fortnight, wbioh
hu for outstripped any put record
During th* week andlng Aug.- 10, 8,-
000,000 bushel, ot wheat war* cleared
from various United Bute* ports,
whil* for th* week coding Aug. 17 th*
oloarances rose to tbe phenomenal total
ot 9,000,000 bushels.

THE TAX ON MINES.
NslsonT.ibuna: In dieouniug th*
mineral tax, the opp-.ut.nte of the tax
sask this quesiiou: "Would tb* Tribune bt willing to pay 1! per -cent, on
th* output of it* job offlce?" There
eould only be 6ns answer to audi a
���question, and it woold ba a* follows:
Tb* provisos ot British Columbia does
not glv* th* man engaged in job printing any speoial concessions; it sloes not
give him anything that could possibly
be construed as a valuable sseet; by
no possibls combination of clroum-
liianoes could ih* man engaged at job
printing makt a large ram nl money,
not even If ha owned ev.ry job printing
offlc* in tb* p/ovinc*. On th* other
band the province doe* give th* mine
owner a special concession; it gives
bim something that i* considered in
all countries a valuable asset.. lt
givu him a monopoly te tako from
aground, whose boundaries an defined,
al). the miaeral* therein; minerals
that once extracted and sold are no
onger an uaet of the province. The
miner also exiraoted may yield the
miner million* in profit, or they may
���lot yield him a dollar. Tb* job. printer
who get* nothing from tbe province,
except the protection of its laws, ia
required to pay taxu on the value of
bis plant,, and pay it every year
whether he makei a profit or a loss.
The miner who gets special concessions
(rom which millions ara sometimes
realized, ia not required to pay a duller
in taxes on either his realty orbls per-
ssonality ; he tl cnly required to pay 9
per cent on the value of the mineral
-actually mined, and Ihe tax is thsn
not levied on tbe lull value ofthe
mineral, bot only on its value after tbe
costs of transporting it and smelting
it ara deducted. The job printer pays
���a anuual tax on hi* capital,-; th*
miner pay taxes on aomething thit he
���gets from ths provinoe through th*
-employment of capital.
Every printing offlce in Britiih Columbia couhl be purchased outright for
-*600,t00. Them printing offices pay
th* province lu the neighborhood of
���6,000 a year in taxes. The mines In
Britieh Columbia oould not be pur-
st-based for ��1C0,000,0C0. Do the mines
|��y taxes aggregating II.OCO.COO?

Some time ago there wu a notable
automobile procession In the city of But-

also for tbe feet that it wu entirely com-
red ot automobile -sraeons (tike Uut

Or. Heme's automobile hu been 'the

tent to every important section of the
country, are doing more than merely
advertise Dr. Pierce's Remedies���ibey
are pioneers of progress, heralds of the

And this is in keeping with the record
mad* by Dr, Pierce and his latuous pie-
rtions, which bare slwoy* kept iu
front on tlissjtr nterita. Dr. Pierce'a
.Oolden Medical. Discovery Ts still the
leading medicine for disorders and dis-
aases of the stomach and digestive and

the Maoi and healing of weak lungs.

The vride benefits this medicine
hu brought to women bave been well
tumsaed up in the words " It makes weak
*A_me�� strong and sick women well."
The reputation of Dr. Pierce's Pics*
ant Pellets srs a safe* and effective laxative for family use is iatesdiatlonal.
It may be asserted without fear of contradiction that no other firm or company
engaged in the vending of put-up medicines cau rank with the World'a Dispen-
���ary Medical Asasciation, either in ths
opinion of tne medical profession or ot
tbe intelligent puMic. The 'iivalldS'
Hotel and Surgical Institute, which is
connected with tbe "World's Dispeu-
ssary," is alone sufficient to prove this
supremacy. Here is a greut modern
hospital, always Sited witb patients.
where every day successful operations
ere performed on mtn and women whose
diseases demand the aid of surgery. No
hospital in Buffalo is better equipped,
with respect to its modem appliances, or
the surjjical ability of its staff. Dr.R.V.
Fierce, the chief consulting physician nf
this great institution, has associated with
himself nearly a score of physicians,
seech am being a picked man, chosen
for his ability in the treatment and cure
of scnte special form of disease.
Tbe offer that Dr. Pierce makes to
men and women suffering with chronic
diseases of a free eoinnltation by Letter,
it really wituoiu*; a parallel. It places
without s��st or charge the entire resources of a great nvedical Institute at
tbe service of the sick. Such an offer is
not for one moment to be confounded
with those offsrr*of "free medical advice"
which are made by people who are not
physicians, cannot and do not practice
medicine, and are only saved from prosecution by artfully ���jording Iheir advertisements ao that they give th* iuiprcs-

airing the claim to sbe licensed.

It Is Impossible to trace the origin of the
domestic oat with certainty to any exlst-
ina* speoles or vu.Iety of wildcat. Indeed
the time at which the cat wu flnt domesticated and Introduced to human society Is
simply a matter of conjecture. Professor
Bhaler expresses the opinion that the domestication ol the cat must have been
muoh later than tbat of the dog, while naturalists give reasons lor believing to the
eutrary.
Bone peeplo agree with ProfecsorSfcaler
snd (or this reason: Tbat dogs were prob-
sbly km domesticated In order tesassMt In
hunting, and therefore probably In wbat
bulled the bunting age of bum**widely i whercM the oat has nowhere been
generally used u a hunting animal. The
dog 1. esMntlall* gregarious. BstsvosM
hunt In paoks, end whoa Introduced ton
human family herogardsthe family as his
pack and hunts accordingly, m that bo Is
sasUy made serviceable liy the human
hunter. The cat, on the contrary, Is un-
soolaL It lives alono and hunts alsue, M
that It could not be expected to be easily
trained to hunt, either with men or for
msn. In fact, the only member of the cat
family that Is known to hove been trained
to hunt Is tbe cheetah, though an snclcnt
JBgyptlan painting, whleh may be seen la
the British museum, reprcsonsa cat which
la apparently assisting a hunter to catch
birds.
There is another reason for thinking
tbat thecal must have been adopted by
man after tbe hunting age���namely, the
oat', wonderful attachment to localities.
Animals like the wolf, with which the
dog Is mott closely allied, follow their
prey over vast tract, ot country snd seem
to be entirely destitute of local attachment, Tbe wildcat, on tbe contrary, settles down In a particular spat and wslls
for lis prey to come. When removed from
Its accuatomed habitat, It seems to lose Its
skill, and therefore would be useless to
men In s hunting age, becauso tn that age
men seldom had fixed habitations, but
roamed abroad wherever gome was to be
fonnd. Of course much of thll Is eon
lecture. Whether the cat or the dog was
flrst adopted by man cannot now be oor-
titnly known, but tbe cat wu well known
u a domestic animal at an early period of
bumu history.���Boston Journal.
