At a meeting of tbe Canadian Press
Association, Sir Sanford Fleming, whos
is one of the highest authorities on
telegraph and cable services said:
I submit for your conspiration three
remarkable facts:
(1) Canada remalna ths only country in the British Empire where the
telegraph service is not Stateowaed.
(S) With two single exceptions,
Canada and the United States, the telegraph service of every civ ilized nation
on the face of tbe globe is controlled by
the State.
(3) In Canada and the United Stales
the charges for transmission of telegraph messages are prac'ically double
the rates charged in all other civilised
" I leave it with yon, gentlemen of
tho 'Fourth Estate,' to determine how
long this condition of affairs should
last in this British Dominion."
Thus advances publio opinion on
State ownership ot puplie utilities.
Pretoria, April 21���Gen. DeWet has
gone to Heibron, Orange River Colony,
Gen. Botha, the Transvaal commander,
has gone to Vryheid, and Gen. Delarey
and Mr. Steyn hare gone to Klerks-
dorp. Tl.ey have arranged to meet
the burghers at different renslervous
und submit the British terms. It Is
believed the Transvaalera will everywhere accept the terms, as ihey are ia
no way anxious for a winter campaign.
The only difficulty likely to occur will
be, it is thought, with the Orange Free
Staters, many of whom are expeotstd
to prove recalcitrant. In the meantime thero will bo no cessation of hostilities The delegates are expected
back to Pretoria the middle ol May,
and in anticipation of tbeir return they
have given orders here for new clothes,
provisions, etc.
The following is an extract from a
statement made by Mr. Curtis to tbs
Viotoria Times :
" The statement of the Colonist that
I withdrew frjrn the commission because thecominissioner refused to malts
the Government disclose its telegraphic
cipher is utterly untrue. I already
knew the cipher and had known it for
days. 1 withdrew because lho commissioner, after pretending to state ths
effect of Ihe telegrams of 28th February, 1902, from W. McNeill, private
secretary of Mr. Wells, to Gresnshields,
said it was more of a private (i.e. immaterial) nature than other telegrams,
and so ruled it out, while ss a matter
of laot It was a most important telegram, referring distinctly to th* contract aud to Greeusbielda and the Government."
In ono of Great Britain'a Eastern
possessions, an English soldier saw a
big, raw-boned Turk on his hands and
kuees, drinking from aa brook The
soldier, tn pure wantoneoa, gave him a
kick. Tho Turk jumped to his feet,
and without a word struck the English soldier square on the face, felling
him to the ground.
Three other Englishmen made for
the silent Turk nnd prepared to take a
hand; but two Irishmen oame up, and
seeing that the fight was uneven, insisted on fair | lay. The Turk whipped two of the English.uen, and as hs
gave tlie third one a finishing touch,
"Now, ye villains, whin he taekle ���
Turk agin, be sure hs doesn't oome

FRIDAY. AMU 25, 11)02.
The news brought from the coast by
Messrs O'Brien and Parson relative to
tl.e intentions of the C. P. 11. with re
g.rd to Iheir buildings here is, after
the many disappointments Golden hns
had on this subject, almost too good to
be true. Mr. Marpole, when lit comes
to look over the ground, will bo met by
members of the Board of Trade, and it
is to be hoped that no sectional jeal
ousies will be allowed to interfere with
our gettitig a new station this summer.
The Board of Trade aro to be congratulated on their action, and also ou
their selection of delegates, ns Messrs.
Parson and O'Brien have shown them
selves to be very much alive to the
necessities of Golden, and, what is
more to tho point, they seem to have
secured the ear ot those in whose hands
the remedy for our needs lies.
It will he noticed by reference to the
estimates, published in this issue, that
out of the millions of acres of wild
laud held by corporations ai.il indi
viduals for speculative purpi sea. in this
province, the Uorernment only collects
(1.'10,OUO in taxes. About a year ago
the Hon. Minister of Finance wns
worrying about getting money for
school purposes, and suggested that
the revenue tax be raised to $5. If
additional money is needed for school
purposes why not put an extra tax ou
wild land? Everybody knows that
settlement in this province is retarded
by land (peculators, and an extra tux
ou ihem would produce gon.l results,
first, by raising the inouey Available
for school purposes; secondly, by mak
it loss profitable to hold lund out of
use. The policy at present pursued by
tlie Government puts a premium on
land speculation and greatly retard
progress and development.

Tbe controversy bet Keen Gen, Bulh-r
and Gen. Sir Charles Wnrren, is proved
to bs even more bitter than previously
hinted at, while a new extract from
one ol Lord Roberta' despatches brings
additional ceusuro ou Gen, Buller.
Lord Roberts declares that Gen. Butler's endeavor lo put the responsibility
for the defeat on Gen. Warren was not
justifiable. The Field Marshal holds
that it was Biller'a duly lo intervene
when he saw that things were going
This remark wus caused hy a ,dis

or command hia forco himself. We

Thequesiion for the responsibility
for the neural retreat from Spion Kop

The Board of Trade met on Monday

placed in the estimates. While at the
coast Mr. Mar,ole was seen in refer
to the much needed new depot here,

On Monday word wn*, received by
Mr. Griffith to commence work on the
Kicking Horse protection works aud
on Tuesday morning a gang of men,
under lhe direction of Mr. Jas. Noble,
wero hard at work on ths rivor bank
opposite lhe post office. The old crib
is being taken out and a new one built
a few feet fur her back, the face ol the
bank being coverel with malirassing,
which will make a permanent job.
This work has been started none too
soon, as there nre other points on the
river where work is urgently needed,
and there will need to lie some rapid
work done if things are to be put in
good shape for the floods this year.
This work has been delayed by the
indifference of she Dominion Govern
ment, who were expected to share with
the provincial authorities the cost of
this work, but who. iss pursuance of
their policy of neglect of B.C., refused
to make any grant fur the purpose.
Hon. Chief Commissioner of Lands
and Works, however, being well aware
of the necessity uf lho work, has attended to the matter ut once, an I tha
���eaidenis of Golden certainly appreciate
his attention to iheir needs.
