THE STORE
By the little we tell of it week by week. Not one in
fifty of the happening's here gets a word In our advertisements ; they change too quickly even for printing
presses, and maybe we don't talk about the things you
wish most to hear of.
We've told you below of special values 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.

CAPITAL CITY GOSSIP.
From a Special Correspondent.
Viotoria, April 16���For- two weeks
white winged peace hag hovettd orer
Victoria j two weeks ago lobbyists disappeared, warring delegations came no
moro, and the silence across James
Bay was ho longer broken by the disputing solons of tho British Columbia
legislature, and railway promoters
hied themselves to the Yules ami Koot-
enays to give the suffering people of
those districts a twinge of the agony
Victorians have long endured.
All this Ii changed to-night. Peace
has flown and Victoria is the storm
centre of warring railway and political-
elements, and on every hand can be
heard "What will the Government do
in the event of ",   "The Govern*
t,
ment will not dare to go to the country,"  "Murphy is pledged against it,"
"Hay ward has gone with tho crowd,''
"Government will be defeated,''  etc.
M.P'a., railway promoters And politicians nre nil  busy preparing for the
battle royal which will open this week
and will be waged  until  it  is known
whether Canada and particularly British Columbia, is to be dominated by au
alien monopoly,  nnd exploited for the
benefit of our Yankee friends, or if it
is to remain under the control of a
monopoly purely   Canadian,  and exploited for rhe benefit of English and
German   stockholders,   or   until    the
Government decides thnt this province
shall neither bo delivered over to mi'
alien   corporation   or  longer  remain
under the sway of the  "Almighty  C.
P. E." and uridertnkes  the construction of   railways   rn  be-half   of   the
people.
At tho Government buildings nothing
could be learned today.   Chief Commissioner Wells fiould not be seen, and
his deputy would vouchsafe no information when asked about the tenders
for tin  construction   of   tshe  Coast*
Kootenay rtfad.   Tne time for receiving tenders expired,   but  it ucuU not
learned if any tenders had been received,   iu   fact,  no one would talk.   Tho
executive council,   however,   wus  in
session all day, nud it is presumed that
tho railway policy wae being consider*
el.   So careful have the Goverument
bean that nothing should leak out that
ordors were issued tc-duy  not to print
"The Ordars of the Day'' until to-morrow,  copy   for   which   would not be
furnished until the last mrnuto before
tha House   convened.     All   sorts   ol
rumors are in the Air.   but there is nothing more substantial  than rumors',
It is not believed, howover, that the
Government will declare their policy
for several days.
Tho last two weeks have given Vic
torians sufficient   breathing   time to
realize that they have boon tarried off
thoir feet by the banner and drum campaign of the promoters of the V. V. &
Ft., and a strong reaction has set in.
Nowhere today can  bo heard the violent and extravagant statements and
declarations of a few weeks ego. and
the people of this city are now in a
reasonable frame of miud.    While not
inclined to look with favor on   the C.
P. 11., they are beginning to fear they
are being buncoed, and to look askance
at   tha   V. V. & E.,  and  if the last
named  company secures   the coveted
charter with Victoria's rnpport it will
not be because it loves the V, V. & E.,
but becauso it hates the C.P.R.   This
change in the spirit of our dreams haa
been brought about  by  several second
thoughts.    Victorians are  essentially
lovers of fair play.   Tho work of the
V. V. & E.  agents is not considered
fair.   Their trip into tho ridings, their
meetings, appealing to iho prejudices
.of tlie   people,   enlarging upon their
giievauces againsjt the C.P. It.,  and
their attempt to force triembors cf parliament to pledge themselves to vote
for the V. V. & E. charter,   ii   no.v
looked upon as un attempt to iiitiini-
daie the Govern limit and  to bulldoze
them Into adopting a certain courau
with  rupedt to thu granting of the
charter without regard to the interests
of the province as seen by  thoae moat
interested in  its welfare aud  before it
ia known wfiiit the policy of tl>e GoV-
ernment may bo
Tbe V. V. & E. agent's riavd'pliiytfi
skilful game, and one well calculated
to win,  but friends of that company
here nre not haunted by the fear that
tbey   hnve wasted their trumps and
that  their opotieuta hold all the suit
and will get the odd trick.
Since Mr, Bodwell has admitted that
the V. V. & E. will  be constructed by
Jim Hill and operrlod  as a branch of
tho Great  Northern, those  who have
heretofore beon ardent advocates of a
competiting line with   Victoria as a
terminus are asking themselves if the
granting of the V. V, & E. charter and
the construction and operutioii of the
road by the great Northern   will prove'
all that is to be de&lrcd.   They point
out  that the Great Northern has terminal facilities and  a fine harbour at
Everett,  Wash., that it has a large
smelter there and  thnt it is fostering
other large industries located at that
placo.   Tho.'tno under the charter asked for will run only to Midway in B.C.,
and  will thero oonnefct  with n road
running from Republic   to Spokanp.
Hera, thon,they argue, is  whore Victoria will bo buncoed  and where her
grand ferry schema will prove a delusion.    Instead of  being   made  the
terminus of a great transcontinental
railway system and the homo port of n
line of steamers sailing to the Orient,
transpacific business will  be handled
from the Sound aud Victoria will be
merely a port of call  as heretofoie.
Instead uf the ores of tho Boundary I
being brought to the coast cities for
treatment they will ba used to feed the
smelters a�� Everetr. nnd Tacoina and
the resources of British Columbia will
be drained touu'ifd up rival cftfea on
tbe Sound, and the mainland ferry for
which  she will  pay so  high a price
will be run aomi-occasioually, or when
enough Victoria business is offered to
warrant it.   Thus VictcrV-t lioj.es so:
glimmering,  aud  her people aid now
turning fo Government  construction
as the only solution of the vexed ques
tion.   Government construction,  they
say, will give relief,  and is  feasible.
The Government to lea?* tho construct
ed lines for long terms of yea****  under
conditions guaranteeing genuine competition, and  relSvfnti them  from the
exact ionas of either nn American or
Canadian monopoly.    It' is definitely
known that this idse. will  receive tho
careful  consideration of the Govern
ment if they are unable to in ake re.i
sonable terms with tha two companies
asking for charters.

TUE EDUCATION BILL.
Pasting from a minute examination
ot tho Education Bill, Introduced by
tho Hon. J. D. Prentice, Miuister of
Education, we have to consider the
principle of the Bill as a justification
of Its adoption by the legislature, To
framed Bill somewhat revolutionary
without being reactionary is a dis
tlngaUhing mark of a true statesman,
as compared with the pandering motives that too often actuate the ordinary legislator, Iu all ages and nations
man have risen as stars on the political
firmament as tho exigencies of occasion
demanded, That an emergent occasion
for the renovation of the educational
sylitem of this provinoe is at hand
uot even the bitterest critic ur the
moat strenuous opponent of the Bill
will deny. And wo say it in no sycophantic terms that the Hon. Minister
haa shiHvu himself a master of detail
as well as exhibiting an unfaltering
purpose to do justice to the poople as a
whole. Tho bill aims to equalize tho
burden uf cost of education, as woll as
ramoye certain ineongruitias in the
management of the somewhat com plus
methods hitherto in practice. To do
this much of tlie school law, as it now
ti, had to bo rearranged and flystenia
tUeil, iu order that it might como up
to modem require men ts. Hence the
principle of tho Bill ia unassailable, an.l
iu that fact I ins its especial Bireugth.
Opposition to the bill or any measure
of information is the avowod purpose
of a partiaan press .ts woll as that of
tha politician who ia the exponent of
strong partisan views. But we are
confident tho Minister of Education
will have tke hearty approval of all
fair-minded m?n in iiis efforls to
ameliorate or totally solve the educational problem in this province, since
he has con-tented to a modification of
aime minor details in the Bill. The.
honorable gentleman may Hell assume
a justifiable pride in having mado such
advancement iu hia rehabilitation of
the educational system of this province
from which preceding minister.-, had so
often roeoilej.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
Between tbe census and the Chinese
commission now sitting there can be
little il'iuh*. that sufficient data and
evidence will bo produced to warrant
the Dominion Government in prohibiting further Oriental immigration.
Otlier countries have had to slay ihe
yellow wave iu soli-preservation aud
no sound reason for permitting this
country to be overfi >wn with a people
who bleed it to tiie very death has ever
existed. Britain Is teeming with mou
aud women who would gladly avail
themselves of the opportunities British
Columbia offers to wjge earners and
home builders were it not for the pre
���ence here of Japancso and Chinese.
Tj expect whito men to compete with
coolie labor ispr>'iiv.iIeiHto degradati m
from civilization to barbarism. The
coolie bus no though: of intellectual or
social Improvement; the glow of patriotism will never penetrate his cold,
clammy heart to fight for the laud of
\i\* temporary adoption, nor will he
ever he available for tho various to
aponslbilltlosof goo.l citizenship. Surely thpra are enough poor person, and
pnonp.li of indigenous wickedness iu
B.C. without importing from the Orient by the shipload.
Only ihoho who are hliinl.il by n-1
fish and servile interests oppose tbo
CO nit met lon of the Coast Kootenay by
a cam pany independent of tho C. P. R
Why sliould not tho great octopus al
low into thefL'ld of competition an
honorable rival in thes-une way that
individual competition in any businsiS
Bj-h'-TC is permitted uiid usually with
benefit to all coneprned? The people
of British Columbia have groaned long
enough under ihn burdens of monopoly
and they will not come into pos.se-isiou
of all their rights until they throw off
tbe Uoi'.oou th.it binds and grinds ao
unmercifully the spirit oT liberty and
enterprise so necessary iu the development of thia great court try. Competition ti, iiide..d, the life of trade then
let it ))��� fostered and encouraged by
every legitimate means.
Notwithstanding tht) opposition to
the bill to legaliseobampor'y there are
many men of undoubted legal ability
tvft-o favor the Mil, notably twdCablnet
ministers, and of course the introducer
of the bill, Mr. Joseph Martin. There
are not a few newspapers also in favor
of the bill. The majority of people
���Alio give the subject serious thought
btlieve that it ie much better and far
more honest to have it legalized than
to have it practiced under cover ai it
now ie. Few lawyers nowadays are
exempt fiom its practise, and tho lawyer, for self-protection, is justified in
making a bargain with his client to
whicli he consents for services rendered
in his behalf. As to champerty driving
capital out of the country it ia the veriest clap-trap and urged for political
purposes solely.
The Outcrop of last week condemned
tho Government for the tax ou minerals
and says it is a hindrance to development. Wo ��h!nk otherwise. Taxation
of natural resources is the very best
form of taxation any Government can
adopt. Iu fact wo need more of it in
order to relieve the tax on labor and
industry. Today the "moro improvements a man puts on his place the
more lie is taxed Tor doing so. This
wants to be lessened. Tho reason the
-Government is now considering the
advisability of raising the poll-tax
from S3.CO to $5.00 is because there is
not enough revonue raised from the
taxation of natural resources. We ire
naturally anxious to see mines devel-
opid, but at the same time Ihey ought
to pay a fair share ot the revenue of
the country, aud none are better ab'.e
to do so,
MADE STRONG COMMENTS
D.miel Moliat rold tbe Royal Commission re Oriental***, on Friday, that
when fire boss in Wellington mines, he
put. up danger boards across a gassy
plaoe, nnd hnd written a warning in
English and Chineso, snys a Nanaimo
In tho Victoria Times of yesterday, but
shortly after he found Chinese with
naked lights at this place. They told
him they never road the written notices.
Ko had known other cases where the
Chinese deliberately tacked back the
curtains in front of tunnela, and also
sot tiro to them aceidently, rushing to
Ihe shaft to get out without warning
anybody. The Chinese he bad found
utterly untrustworthy, cowardly, sel
fish and careless. Nanaimo was full
of idle whito men, who could get work,
but for tho presence of Chinese. Chinese
here meant ruin for gro-ring lad*.
David Cartwright, a Lancashire miner
said ha had advised friends iu England
not to come here, because of Chineso,
He considered Asiatics the main cause
of British Columbia's backward condition.
Witnesses from Extension mines
wsro expected today, but did not come.
Commissioner Munn said if they
di iii't coine they would have to take
it that they wore afraid to do soon
account of losing th 'ir positions ff
lltev gave truthful evidence us to Chinese working there.
The Commissioner will go to Union,
and probably Extension.
THE CHAMPERTY BILL.
The following extract is from the
Kamloops Standard and exhibits soms
of tho phases of the Bill as seen from
a layman's standpoint:
'We ara glad to see Mr, McPhillips
doos not intend to let Mr, Marti./ %
Chaupert.-Billbjrusliedthrough with*
t mature deliberation. The surprl-
51nif thing is, that tho Attorney General and Minis nrof Mines, both lawyers,
have been induced to give it their support, the more so that the Attorney-
General bad previously opposed it.
The object of the bill is to allow a client
'0 mako terms with bis lawyer asto
the fool to be pai.l on any work hc may
��� nd-'itake. The argutnont is that
many a poor man is unable to take into
court his wrongs, or what he may be-
l.'ove to be his wrongs, for adjustment,
owing to the hard and fast rule asto
the payment of fees lo his lawyer, and
that if the bill pasnes a parson miy go
to his lawyer with a case, agreeing beforehand that if he does net win it he
receives no 'remuneration, and if lie
does tho lawyer gets moro than he
would were he to bu paid according io
schedule*. Ou the face of it tbis appears
to b* reasonable, but, unfortunately,
it leads, in tho States in which it is
allowed, to a lot of unnecessary and
vexatioujpliligation, and tends to en
courage a breed cf lawyers known as
'���shysters," of which we have very few
at present. Those who are acquainted
with California will know (hat the
lawyers there tout for bus'ness almost
as importunately as hotel runners, and
an innount of litigation is entered into
and blackmail paid, which is not the
f.wm so fariu ihis Province.   Cases j
whero lawyers sell their clients are
common. If a lawyer thinks he can
make more money by dropping the case
be commenced, he is tempted to do so
becauso he is no longer tha servant of
his client as he is in British Columbia
but becomes his partner in a soheme
to extract money from other people. In
Alaska, a fow years ago, a lawyer made
a practice ol bringing vexatious suits
against a company doing business there
not in the interests of his clients but
in order to obtain an annual income
from tho company to abstain from
bringing suits agaiust them. He wat
perfectly within his rights, yet no one
will pretend that he was a benefit to
the community. It has been argued
that the Incorporated Law Society of
British Columbia is so zealous of its
professional honor, that it would deter
its membars from -engaging in such
blackmailing practice, but tbe Law
Society only hears ofthe flagrant cases
and is unacquainted with the small
tricks of parasitical lawyers, who, if
they got the chance, would fatten oo
the people, Last year wo believe, six
cases of malpractice on the part of
lawyers were brought before them,and
only two were disbarred. If the bill
passes it will tend to leaver the standard of this Province, and that in itself
is sufficient reason for its rejection."
Itedttead Money-Order Itatei.
An arrangement has just been concluded between the United States and
Canada, under which all postal moneys
sent between that country and Canada
will go at tbe domestic rate of three-
tenths of one per |cent. instead of the
international rate of one per cent as at
present. This concession ia regarded
as more important to the money ordor
business than any action taken since
the inception of the system. The money orders annually sent to Canada from
the United States now aggregate about
$2,000,000. The exchange of these orders has been restricted to 4,000 offices
but under the new oraangeroent wiil
beextended to 30,000 offices in the United States, any money order office in
either country being thus authorized
to issue or pay them. It is said that
tho radical reduction iu the rate will
treble the business,
A Pl-iIn-Mpvaklnir Oleilc.
The Rev. Mr. Kettlewell, in the
he course of an address recently delivered iu Guelpb. Ontario, on "Christian Socialism," said: ''In many of
oji- cities aro to be fouud the sweat
shops, in Montreal, Toronto nnd Hamilton, and even in Gait men were earning
five dollars per week making shoos.
Itis easy to talk of the sins of the
Jews; it is easy for the congregation
io crucify the Pharisees, but tho dan
ger is coming nearer home. You have
heard, no doubt, of the recent coinbin
ation formed by the furniture dealers. Thot company is offering prefer-
ent* stock at 74 cents, and has paid
a profit of 18 cents on the stock, yet
in my own town I have known thero
to pay their employees 80 and 90 cents
per week���not per day.'

Met Ii oil 1st lUlnltfteri and tke  TCred,
A despatch from Toronto says:���The
Methodist Court of Appeal discussed
several matters of church discipline at
the annual meeting, hold hero today.
k most important case arose out of a
misunderstanding as to the wording
of Church Discipline, which makes the
loiter of the discipline of uo effect in
convicting a niininter of smoking- The
smoking clergyman is Rov. W. W.
Baer, of Victoria district. His cute
was Uid before the district by Judge
Williams, and the Chairman of the
disrict, Rev. Mr. Speer, ruled that
tho paragraph cited in the case did not
apply to ordained ministers. It was
a technical question, and tht case was
thrown out.
Mr. Williams appealed to Rev. Mr,
Whitihigton, President of the British
Columbia Conference, who sustained
the iiiling of the Chairman, and the
Court of Appeal has been asked to decide as to the working of tht dlsoip
line. The Court allowed the appeal,
and sent the cats back to the district
for trial. Rov. Mr. Speer should have
ivied it when it came before him. It
is explained that some years ago Rev.
Mr. Baer fell a distance of fifty feet,
disorganizing his nervous system, and
he suffered from insomnia, from which
he was relieved by the administration
ot opium. Later he substituted tobacco for opium. Tht Rev. Dr. Carman presided and the members-af the
Court ino'tided Messrs. J. J McLaren,
IC. C; Rev. Dr.* Shaw, of Montreal;
Rev. Dr Ant life, ef Montreal; Rev. S,
Bond, of Londo.i; Dr. James Mills, of
Guelpb; Judge Deacon, of Pembroke;
Mr. N.W. Rowell, of Toronto, and
Ruv. Mr. Grundy.
Lord Kelvin on Newspaper Batadlag,
In his attitude toward the daily press
Lord Kelvin presents a curious contrast
to Bishop Creighton, whose ignorance
of journalism has been referred to in
this column. To an interviewer who
asked him whether he read a great
deal, Lord Kelvin a little while ago
made a rather startling reply that he
had not read a book for thirty years,
'���I read nothing but the daily papers.
Well perhaps thit isau overstatement;
it may not be thirty years, but it is a
long time. Of course I am continually
referring to books, but I have not the
time for steady reading, except tbe
daily papers, and I feel especially bound
In crises of our history to study the
course of events." Compare this with
Mr. Balfour's statement: "I never

GOLDEN is the key to the Upper Columbia Valley
the head of navigation on the Columbia River, and the
centre of an extensive stock-raising and ranching country, extending from the headwaters of the Columbia River
in the south to Tete Jaune Cache in the north.
The important mineral discoveries recently made in
the Golden and Windermere districts, together with the
fact that transportation is now assured at an early date
by a railway running the length of the Columbia and
Kootenay Valleys, from Golden to Cranbrook, ensure great
activity in the mining camps of North East Kootenay.
Negotiations are also proceeding, which will ensure the
operation of the Golden Smelter within the next few
months.
THE GOLDEN TOWNSITE now offered forms
the only land available for the extension of the building
area.

Hoapltnt Notes.
Anyone visiting the Golden Hospital
could not have failed to notice the
much needed improvements and renovation uf its interior and exterior. Of
all institutions a hospital should be
cheery, cleanly and comfortable. These
three essentials have been attained to
a praiseworthy degree in this home for
the sick. To the energetic secretary,
Mr. Robbins, Is due, largely, the credit
for having accomplished the necessary
renewing nnd indeed the whole staff,
including surgeon and nurses are to lie
commended for their untiring efforts
in all that pertains to the welfaro and
oversight of ihe sick*
A well is being sunk at the hospital
to which a windmill will ho erected
for the supply of water to the building.
This will prove a great convenience
aud one which will he fully appreciated
hy nil connected with  the institution.
That nature loaned a generous hand
in the attractions of the hospital
grounds only a visit is necessary lo
verify. Nestled within a wealth of
trees the building smiles and almost
bids one to come in. The lawns and
pathways are being embellished with
flower beds and shrubbery that will
often cheer the weary invalid in his
daily promenade.
Patients receive tho best of attention
and all refer in kindly terms of the
doctor nnd nurses.
MINING NEWS.
The silver-lead production of British
Columbia of 1800 wns fairly doubled in

The Highland mine at Ainsworth
hss practically closed down because tbs
conditions, it is claimed, prevent the
properly being operated profitably it
present. Increased charges for treat
ment and thu low price of lead ars tbe
reasons assigned for the suspension of
operations.
The Britannia mine on Howe Sound
has been bonded to W. A. Clark, of
Montana for $1,000,000, of which
f 10,000 was paid in cash and the balance to be paid in a year. There are
15 claims in a group and an enormous
quantity of oro Es exposed.
It is estimated that in the uear future the smelting plants of southeastern British Columbia, whioh now have
a total capacity of 3,450 tons, will be
enabled to handle twice the present
amount of ore.
CHINESE COMMISSION.
Conl Mine   Superintendent  GIym In-
Ureatlng Evldanee.
Before the Chineso Commission on
Tuesday last at Nanaimo the evidence
of S. M. Rubins, superintendent of the
New Vancjuver Coal Company, occupied tho whole of tho morning sessiou.
Mr. Robins has been superintendent
of tho company for eighteen years.
His testimony is very important as he,
perhaps, has a wider experience and a
more accurate knowledge ot the value
of Chinese labor than any individual
in the Province.
He siAd the total number of men in
the employ of tho company was 1,330,
of whom the total number of whites
was 1,093, and of Chinese 243. The
whole number of whites employed below ground was 918. Those above
ground 175, The Chinese were all employed above ground as follows: Stokers, 37; banksmen, (under supervision
of a responsible whito mau), 48; timber-
men, (preparing the timber for the
mine), 10; making a total employed for
the mine, 104. Besides these the company have a large number (57) emplo y
ed just at that moment clearing land,
which was being done with all possible
speed to enable the planting of crops
for the season.
When this work was completed they
would be dropped off again. The number of farm hands proper wat 8, making G5 employed at this work.
The smallest sum paid a Chinaman
was $1,124, and the highest sum paid
them per day was $1,25, which was
paid to 85.
The miners, who worked by tbe ton
almost exclusively, earn, roughly
speaking, from $3.00 to $5.00 per day,
There were few who earned less than
$2.60 per day.
Continuing, the witness said that
following on the Wellington explosion
in 1S88, an agreement had been reached
by tho colliery owners with the men
to keep the Chinese out of the mines,
d since thon no Chinaman bad ever
set foot below ground in Nanaimo.
The immigration of Chinese should be
Bu'.irely stopped. Por one thing it
caused manual labor to be looked down
upon by the younger generation. There
was at present a large surplus of Chit-
ese in the province, and no industry
would suffer by prohibiting Mongolian
mmlgratlon, He objected to the introduction of a servile class. The
Chinese anJ Japanese were too servile
to suit him. He had never employed
Asiatic domestics, and knew nothing
of them. The servant problom was
largely due to the want of experience
of the mistresses.
As Mongolian labor was reduced its
place would be taken by white labor
and not necessarily cheap labor,
He would himself work to maintain
tbe standard of wages. He would deprecate bringing cheap labor from
eastern Canada or other places. Men
had offered to work for the company
at $1.75 a day and their services had
been refused. The management did
not want to bring down the standard
of wages. All laboring men should
have adequate remuneration, and therefore it wae advisable to restrict tbe
importation of the cheaper class of
white labor. He did not care where
the restriction came from, it was of
first importance that a living wage
should be paid. H he could not walk
about the town without being ashamed
to look a working man in the face be
would rather walk out ot it. An agreement had been made ton years ago
between the company aud the men.
There haa been no strike during that
period. The union had never forced
anything upon the company. He most
emphatically preferred to deal with
organized rather than with unorganised laboi. Labor conditions might
change with changing markets, but
under no conditions would tho compauy
employ Mongolians underground again.
At the afternoon session Dr. B. E.
Mclveehnie gave evidence which was
strongly ugainat the Chinese, and Dr.
Walkem dwelt on instances ot their
fil'hy habits which had come under
his personal observation.
