Referring to the atiempts of the Mo*
Keinsie-Mann people to bulldoze the B.
.ft' Legislature tlio Toronto Sentinel
says: "It Hon. Joseph Martin is
able to clear the lobbyists from the
legislative halls of British Columbia,
lie will accomplish a good thing for
that province particularly anil for the
Dominion generally. The lobbyist is
a greedy parasite upon the political
hotly, which is constantly sucking the
life-blood of sincere purpose from tbe
legislators of tho country. In every
house of parliament and legislature
upon tbe continent the lobbyist flourishes only by destroying iho integrity
of tho members and leading thein to
the adoption of laws that are contrary
to the publio interests. The successful
lobbyist must be a man of infinite re*
sources devoid of conscience and
thoughtful only to attain his end. A
selfish individual of considerable talent
which be prostitutes to tho most sor
did uses, it i*9 only necessary to know
him and his methods to appreciate tbe
importance of driving him from the
legislative halls. The Hon. JosepTi
Martin will (ind him more difficult to
dislodge than he found tho late government ot" the province of British Columbia, but it is of more importance for
tho general good that this particular
form of parasite should be dtstroyed
than even that there should be a
change of government. If Hon. Mr.
.Martin can deviso a way of getting rid
of this class of people in British Columbia, there will be some hope of
their elimination from the consideration of piivate bills in tho legislature
of Ontario and in the parliament of
' anada. -Fighting Joe' is not the
most agreeable man in Canadian politics, but lie is certainly one of the most
elective "
To this the Winnipeg Tribune adds
"Apart from the character of the
' lobbyist' and his work, is the character of the people wbo employ
and the purposes for which they use
him. It is not the plain citizen seek-
ing clean, economical government who
uses these men, The lobbyist is the
fit instrument of tlio subsidy-huuier,

Quebec P. Q. Mar. 20,���A very short,
very pithy nud weighty statement   is
given for publication by  Miss.   Lizzie
Linsey, ol ihis city.   This   statement
made und signed in   the   presence  of
witnesses, carries a message of   hope,
and encouragement to the vast majority of women, for nine of  every   ten
women are sufferers from one or other
of the long train of ills known popularly as Female Troubles.
To these, to them all, without exception, Miss Linsey's statement proves
that there is in Dodd's Kidney Pills,
positive and permanent cure for the
diseases tbat rob life of all its pleasures
and joys,
Miss Linsey writes: "I have been a
great sufferer from Female Weakness
and Headache. I suffon.il all the tortures attendant upon these diseases,
and could get no relief, though I iried
many different kinds of remedies. Some
tune ago I b gan using Dodd's Kidney
Pills, aud my complete cure began at
the same time. I am now strong and
well In every way, thanks to Dodd's
Kidney Pills."
Weak, pule, nervous women, whose
lives are a continual round of suffering
need look no further for a enre. If
they will use Dodd's Kidney Pills,
tbey are sure of complete restoration
ta vigorous health.
Dodd's Kidney Pills strengthen the
Kidneys, and the Urinary Organs, and
bring health, strength and vitality to
weak, defective organs. No Kidney
Diseases can exist when Dodd's Kidney Pills are use!.   -

Party Leaves on Monday.
The placer strike recently made on
the tributaries of the Fraser River in
tho vicinity of Tete Jaune Cache appears to be creating a lot of attention
at Edmonton, end it is reported that
500 people will shortly leave Edmonton for the new Held going in by the
Yellovvhfiad Puss. Another party is
supposed to be outfitting at Calgary
for the supposed El Dorado. People
are also arranging to go in from Golden und Donnld. Among others the
Veil, Archdeacon McKay and Chun
Ruttan laik of going to Tete Jaune
Cache instead of Atlin as at first they
intended. One of the best means of
access will be by water going from
Beaver by lhe Columbia River, running or portaging Surprise Rapids 20
miles north of Beaver, and thence by-
boat to the Big Bend, where Canoe
River comes in, which is said to afford
good facilities for boating for over 40
miles beyond the Big Jam. This jam
affords in itself no difficulty as Mr.
Evans informs us tbat he has taken
boats over it by cutting away some of
the over-lying timber. Ssveral people
at Golden are urging that the Govern*
.nent should have tbat district at ones
tacked on to the North East Kootenay
Gold Commissioner's district and that
a mining recorder be sent there. At
present Mr. Evans is mining recorder
for tbe camp.
Let ut say plainly that in our opinion, from all that we have been able to
learn, there is nothing to wairant any
insane rush to that country as yet.
Gold, is there, but it bas yet to be
proved that it exists in quantities.
The country ie large, and we believe
affords a first-class field for tbe prospector as there is a large atea of it
unexplored, and away .north on the
Parsnip, Pence, Omenica. Nation,
Osilinca, Findlay and other rivers,
which can be reached conveniently
from Tete Jaune Cache, there is known
to la much excellent gold-bearing
For those who wish to take in
horses the Moberly trail from Donald
north is available and appears to be
far an 1 away- tbe best route of travel
connecting Tete Jaune Cache with the
railway and moan-) of communication,
'Some pans of tha trail are, however,
desperately bad, being boggy and
marshy, whilo softie of the rivers Such
as Bush River, are bad to cross. The
route is, however, oue over which
first-class trail or wagon road cau be
built and the matter of bridging tho
worst of the rivers should present no
difficulty, providing the district offers
sufficient attractions and tho traffic is
sufficiently large to justify the Govern
ment in arranging to carry out the
A route 180 miles from the railway
line at Donald or Beaver presents undoubted attractions over the route of
240 miles from Kamloops, cr .that of
4S0 miles from Edmonton. The traffic to that country undoubtedly has
its natural Outlet si this end, and
while unwarrantable booming is to he
deprecated, we believe the great western valley of the Rocky .Mountains
north of Golden is sufficiently large
and wealthy fo justify efforts to develop its reeources.
Reports reach Golden that 60 men
started last week from Edmonton for
Tete Jaune Cache.
The Edmonton Bulls in publishes a
letter received from one of thi prospectors at Tete Jaune Cache, by name
Jackson. It appears that Jackson
went in there last year and was the
first to find gold dn Swift Current,
having picked up a piece of quartz
showing the precious metal. This lie
communicated to Holliday and party
from Golden, and who went in there
last season. Thoy prospected Swift
Current and found good prospects at
riin rock, came to Goldi-n and outfitted, returning in the fall when the
present strike wits rtfude.
In his letter* to his wife Jackson says
that there wad a dispute as to who
should stake the discovery claim, and
meeting of the1 prospectors from
Golden was held, when it was decided
that as Jackson was* the first to draw
attention to the ground he should
stake the claim, and the others staked
after him. Jackson states that he
has eunk a shaft to bedrock and has
pay-dirt running 60 ctnts to tbe pan
and that a man can make 140 a day.
He describes the trip which he had in
from Edmonton as n very bard one.
There Is considerable excitement at
Donald over the new And, and on
Monday and Tuesday thfiYgs were
quite lively in the old town when ten
of the residents formed a mining partnership, at $10  a head, to send out a
party of prospectors to locate ground
for them. The party will consist of
the Veil. Archdeacon McKay and
Messrs. Patmore, jnr., W. Martin, of
Beaver, and T. Forest. Winnipeg hus
been telegraphed to for toboggans and
it is intended to get some dogs together
if possible. The party intend to start
from Beaver on Monday, folio,ring
the Columbia River, and should reach
the new goldfield in the course of a

cough and influenza. It has become
famous for its cures of these diseases,
over a large part of the civilized world.

been received, giving accounts of its
good works; of tho aggravating and
persistent coughs it hss cured ; of severe colds lhat have yielded promptly to
its soothing effects, and of tbe dangerous attacks of croup it has cured, ofton
saving the life of the child. The extensive use of it for whooping cough
has shown that it robs that disease of

M. Bournnis is making a fine showing (iii the Silrer Hill and Maraiwitb
claims, which he lias located three
miles souili of Windermere. The ore
is galena. R. A. Kimpton has taken A
bond on the property.
It in stated that the English syndicate which has bonded ihe Porcupine
Creek cluims will start soon to open a
good road to the property so as to get
in mining machinery and supplies,
Tbe Hon. F. W. Aylmer informs nt
that when at Windermere he saw Mr.
Starke, who had just come in frem th*
Delphine and tbe property continued ta
maintain its promising cha.scter as
development work prbeceded.
W. B. Robertson and F. Stalker
started out from Beaver on snow-shoes
to visit the Porcupine Creek claims
where Sam Yuill is putting in the
winter. They were out two days on
the trip Hhd tho travailing <hitS scf
iieavy that they decided to abandoif
the trip and returned when within
about four miles of the property.
H. B, Foster has taken an interest
with Messrs Kimpton and Starke on
theB. C. and Chilberry claims on Toby
Creek. Development tvorii will be
started on the property in tho course
of two or three weeks. We are jflacr
to see Mr. Foster taking such an active interest in the development of the
mining nnd ranching resources of
Windermere district and hope to serf
his enterprise rewarded With satisfactory rbsults.
Work on ibe Delphine is being-
pushed on night and day. When Mr.
Stark came in to WibdWaiere lateljf
he stated that tbe ground was changing and becoming easier to sink through
He expected that by the end of MarcU
the shaft would be Sown 2(W feet, A
fine winter has been Experienced at thd
mine, and operations have processed:
without obstruction. The ground is-
now practically bare of snow and indeed there has been very little snew u|i
Toby Creek this winter. So favirable'
has been the winter that though there
has been very little traffic to keep tlief
trail open Mr. Kimpton himself recently rode up to the mine and back ltd

the Increased number of Immigrants

A poet is cross with me because I decline firmly to read his manuscripts nnd
advise him as to the desirableness of
taking to verse with all his young energy. Other poets may take a statistical
view ot their caso. Let them consider
the estimated population of the globe.
How many of them have justified their
conduct in lieing poets! At this honr
is there one such being anywhere ? Suppose, for the sake of argument, that
there are six. How many millions to
one is it against tho success of the neophyte ? But, if versify he must, let him
send his work to all tbe editors. If they
think his poems worth printing (and
paying for), then let him mako friends

supply comes from the Ural Mountains,

quantity, regardless of price, slnco
wherever platinum is used lt Is nn Imperative necessity, so that any change of

thnt tho syndicato has not been able to
obtain control of nil thu mines, so that

Why It Wiih Named Rubber.
A recent tenon from n British consul
In one of thu Central American states
gives the following us tho origin of the
mime rubber, as applied to caoutchouc:
An English artist discovered in 1770 that
the new gum was admirably adapted for
rubbing out pencil marks. Ho wrote a
paper on tho subject and Informed his
contemporaries that u cubic inch of this
substance, costing only 3 shillings, would
last for years. It was used for no other
purpose in England than effacing lead
pencil marks for about half a century
After this discover}*; hence tho n&mo "rubber,"
After the Introduction of tho raw material and the scientific description of the
plant by Frenchmen it was first manufactured into waterproof clothing in
Franco toward tho end of the eighteenth
century. L&tor on the firm of Mcintosh
of Manchester greatly improved on tho
French idea and manufactured waterproofs on a largo scale, and ''mackintosh"
Is the name by which waterproofs havo
been known since that time.���Philadelphia

London, Eng., Hospital, the first (even
days not recovering consciousness. I am
now 35 years old and from the time of my
accident .until I began taking Dr. Ward's
Pill*, five months ago I had been subject to
fainting spells, never being more than two
weeks without an attack of fainting, As
I grew older these spells became more
frequent, lasted longer, and left me with
less vitaiity. I was weak, had no strength
or stamina, always very low-spirited and
down-hearted; imagined that everything
and every person was going against nae,
and life only had a dark side for me. My
appetite was poor most of the time, but 1
am now happy to say that, since taking
Dr. Ward's Blood and Neive Pills, I have
only had one fainting spell, shortly after
1 began taking them, so 1 have no
hesitation in saying that Dr. Ward's
Pills cured me. Before taking these
pills I always looked for a fainting spell
not more than two weeks apart; now,
I would be greatly surprised at a recurrence of these spells. Life is now bright
���the constant, morbid, down-hearted feeling is gone, being replaced by a contented, hopeful feeling. I feel like working.
My appetite is good, and in every respect
Ihave experienced the health and strength
restoring properties of Dr. Ward'* Blood
and Nerve Pill*. They certainly have
proved a great blessing to me. Your*

A Qai.bec Parmer Tells  How He Wat  Restored Prom Almost Hopeless Suffering
to Complete Health.
Mr. Wm. Goodard, a well-known
farmer, living near Knowlton, Que.,
says:���"A few years ago my health
gave way aud I was completely prostrated. The least exertion would use
me up nud make it difficult for me to
breathe. I suffered from headaches,
aud had no appetite, and fell off iu
weight until I was reduced to 1*10
pounds. Finally I grew so bad that I
was forced to keep my bed, and remained there for several moiiilu. I
was under the care of a doctor, but lie
did not seem to help me. One duy a
frieud urged me to try Dr. "Williams'
Pink Pills, nnd I procured two hoses.
When I had finished them I conld
not nee much improvement aud wonld
havo stopped taking them bnt for the
nrging nf my friend, who said that in
my condition I could not expect to sec
immediate results. I continued taking
the pills, and by the time I had taken
a couple more boxes there was no doubt
that they were helping rae, and it needed no further persuasion to induce mc
to continue them. In tbo course of a
few months I not only regained my
henlth, but increased in weight fifty
pounds. These results certainly justify
the faith I have in Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, uud I strongly urge those who are
weak and broken down to give them n
fair trial.
More weak and ailing people have
been made strong, active nnd energetic
by using Dr. Willinms' Pink Pills than
by nny other means. They fill the
veins with new, vigorous blood, and
strengthen every nerve in the body.

Cure of
Perhaps you've suffered with constipation for years, tried all the pills and purgatives you ever heard or read of. without
getting any more relief than the one dose
ofthe medicine afforded.
Then you were left worse than before,
bowels bound harder than ever, the constipation aggravated instead of cured.
All the miseries of constipation���Headache, Sick Stomach, Biliousness, Pimples,
Eruptions, Blood Humors, Blotches, Piles,
and a thousand and one other ills crowded
back on you again with redoubled severity.
Wouldn't you consider it a blessing to
be cured of your constipation so that it
would stay cured? So that a repetition of
all the suffering you have endured would
never come again ? Burdock Blood
Bitters can cure you���cure so that the
cure will be permanent.
That's where it differs from all other
remedies. It makes a thorough renovation of the whole intestinal tract, tones
the bowel wall, acts on the liver and
stomach, and causes all the digestive and
secretory organs to so work harmoniously
and perform their functions properly and
perfectly that constipation, with all its
.-ittcndant sickness, sufferingandill health,
become a thing of the past.
Miss Arabella Jolie, living at 99 CarruVe
Street, Montreal, Que., bears out all we
say in regard to the efficacy of Burdock
Blood Bitters in curing constipation permanently.   This is her statement:
" I'or over a year I suffered a great
deal from persistent constipation and
could only get temporary relief from the
various remedies I tried until I started
using Burdock Blood Bitters. I am thankful to say that this remedy
lins^completely and permanently cured me and
/ have had no return of
the constipation.

seemed to give any relief. I wus aide
to be around all the time, but constant-
ly suffering. I had tried everything I
could bear of and nt last was told to
try Chamberlain's Puiu Balm, which I
did, and was immediately relieved and
in a short time cured. I am happy to
say that it has not since returned.���

who shall have the land required surveyed, at his own cost, by a duly authorised provincial land surveyor, in
accordance with tbe pvouisions of this
It shall be the duty of the surveyor
