���ad the Russian, over a piece of land
alleged to belong to tho railway co.li-

bt the oompany for somo years. Aocording to despatches from Tien Tain,
the Russians assert that this landis
part of their new concession, and therefore Russian property Mr. Kinder,
manager of the railway, had begun to
mak. a siding, bnt wa. stopped by tho
Russian authorities. Uo appoaled to
Col. Mcfjonald, who referred tab flutter to Oen. Barrow, Britisli chief of
State in Pekin, who replied: "Carry-
on the siding with armed force if necessary."
Guards were put on tbe line by Ibe

Gen. Wagasaka, Russian commander,
protested and said the work would not
have bsen done if Ihe Russians had
had as many troops as tho British,
adding that such matters should btf
left to diplomacy.
Col. McDonald again communicated
with Gen. Harrow, who telegraphed;-
"Cantinae the siding."

AN APPEAL.
To the workingnien of British Columbia: ���
A bill is now before the Provincial
Legislature asking for tbe increase ot
Ihe present 83 revenue tax to $5. This
fails ss a direct tax upon labor, and
should not be tolerated for an instant
by the workinemen of this Province.
We have already suffered long and
submitted patiently to the many indignities thrust upon us by- bungling legislators in tbe past, and. now patience
hM teheed to he a virtue.
We have been deprived of just representation, in the legislature, thi.
same reveuue ta* b.�� versr often beta
taken from u. by stealth, by drawing
our wages to tbe amount without our
consent or knowledge, and worst ot all
looking rejuvsnatsd and wearing the whu, oit ntu*0, hov�� been bent in toll,
old familiar "Wilk-onio" smile. Not
withstanding the many attractions ot
Ihe old land he much prefers the free*,
untainted air of B. C, lo the stifled,
ef ete atmosphere of tha old world. In
his peregrinations he kissed the Blarney
stone aud rummaged the catacombs,
made an ascent of Mt. Blano took off
his hat to the Sphinx and nearly broke
the bank at Monte Carlo. Mr. Wilkinson is the owner of many valuable
thoroughbred prlxe winners in all classes of farm stock, besides he possesses
a farm at Chilliwack which he culti
votes on scientific principles and with
a large margin of profit,
The council ot Public Instruction
has been pleased to repeal A. tide 20 ot
the Rules end Regulations and substitute therefor the following: "Every
Saturday, Sunday, Oood Frldr-y,
Easter Mondsy, Empire Dav(May 24),
Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and
King's Birthday shall he a holiday.
Any day proclaimed a holiday by tbe
Lieut.-Governor shall also be a school
holiday. Holidays proclaimed as such
by the mayors ot cities shall uot bo regarded as school holidays."
The merits ot ths Columbia valley
atmosphere have bun so often attest
etl in the relief and cure ot lung

In collusion with the men to whom
we foolishly trusted to guard our interests. Let us rise in our might and
put a. stop to thi. sort of thing at

this way . It this bill is defeated In
tho house on March llth, well snd
good. Don't forgot the members who
opposed II. They will be deserving of
the support of the people at, the noxt
election. It the bill iocarried, as it is
likely to do, then this Appeal is to call
to action, A copy is being sent to
overy constituency in the Province
that it io possible to speedily reach,
and you 'Sre urged to call public meetings in eaoh riding, pass resolutions
condemning the Aot, and ask for its
repeal.
Many of   Ihe  members will have

their hands strengthened by such resolutions.   To those who voted for It,
wo can only .ay : It is timo you (ound

if we say so, you must repessl this Act
or be dismissed, just tbe same ao any

of the amendment is to make the penalty not more thau 31,000 and not less*

that the penally is to be recovered only

Wo propose to modify that sectiorl and
to provide that tho penalty  should be

tho penalty is sued for.   Tbe second

In practico that this svord "peroonal
friend" is too clastic for practical pur-'
poses, aod that it may be made an oc-'

we propose to strike cut the word*

MUTE.
An Interruption cane to tht pleasure
Elizabeth found in her father's companionship. '
It reached her at the end of their
fint year's tour 'neatb the sunny skies
of Switzerland and other lauds.
It came to aer iu the shape of a Utter
ftom the lawyer to whom she had tn-
trotted her business, wheu sbe and her
father left the domain of the Stars nud
Stripes; this lawyer was net MrJaffrey,
Mr. Jaffrej having gone to Krauc on a
mission for the U. 8. Government.
The letter informed her that the
revenues froni her ttut.il [.o.-jessieti���th.*
"Esgle Bill" gold mine, in (Jfth.oru tl.
had undergone n. change of late, au 1
Here, in fact, failing fast oiy.pf;prin-.������

ot the Nald mine. The lawyer wl.ht-1
her to sign and.return to hm a docn-
limit fot- the said manager's dismissal.
which in a blank form he, rh.' kiwye-',
had em-lotted.
This said letter settled a mutter which
iu au indefinite chape had (remained In
KlizalK'th's mind for about a year.
Her father's sister's husband (wlm
wm* theu a widower) owned a mine in
Ci.liierua, adjacent tu the Eagle B'll,
nml this gentleman, whose nnme WSS
(Jodfrey, had a lovely daughter, named
Klsle, who had hi-en a chus-raate of
KliBiil-eth'sS some years before. Elian-
1 oth had often promised to visit Elsie,
but ber love for her father's co i p*mi ei-
i-h.'p had hitherto prevented it. Now
that she had to tnrn her attention for a
time to h.-r own mine, she reolved to
pny the oft-promised visit to Elsie, ami
at the fame time, personally Inspect her
owu possession. Accordingly she gr*
iiuiged with her father that he waa tu
gi. on to Florence, la Italy, where sli-j
would join him the following autumn,
wrote to her lawyer that she woull
defer signing her manager's dismlssil
}or a mouth or two, and in a fi w week-i
mmd herself back to her own native
country.
After she had beeu taken as near to
the Eagle Bill as the train conld ta'ie
her she had still before her a drive of a
couple of dosen miles, over the rough
trull which led to "Darcle's."
"DnreleV" was the name of the place
which boasted of a half-dozen hamlets
iu the centre ef this mining regio.i.
These hamlets comprised the saloon
kept by Dareie (the most impa.t.nr of
the bunch), the postoffice. the store, the
trading "post" aod tbe Ooveinm'-1 it
offlce.
Godfrey's mine, ''The Sure Footed
Colt," was distant from "DarJeV*
some two miles, and Elisabeth h d arranged by letter with Elsie for tl.e latter
to be thero on Friday evening to drive
hei over.
But Elisabeth had made much better
time than she had expected b>th by
stnge nnd train, and It was on Friday
noon instead ef Friday evening thit site
arrived at '"Darcle's."
The country had taken on Ita beautiful
vesture of June, and the landscape was
lovely in Its bloom and Intense, m Elisabeth, who waa passionately fond of the
glories, of nature, decided to wnlk over
to Godfrey's rather than wait for the
drive In the evening.
The young mau who held the nuraer-
otit offices of barkeeper, porter, stage
clerk, etc., etc., at tbe saloon, was only
too eager to de her the klnfineifS of
pointing out to her the way over to
Godfrey's. But I am afraid his attention waa so fixed on the fresh bloom of
KlisubethN face, that his description >t
the way she was to take suffered
thereby.
Uow beautiful the world looked to
her that afternoon. The *ky was of the
purest azure, and filled the void abore
the earth with Its dreamy beauty, In
tbe still woods the vines formed tbem*
selves into monster mosques,'Id which
one could fancy that, dryads held midday banquet* free from the cares of
this life. The flowers bloomed everywhere iu profusion, and here snd tbere
brooks flowed through the level putcho*
of the land, their voices dispelling the
solitnde of the trees, und Inviting the
K s the red chorus to join them Ih their
serenades. Through valleys here and
there, to the right of the woids, Klltn-
l-eth snw rivers flowing, with the lakes
beyond, over the slumberous bosoms of
which large bints met In play.
'.'Ob! how lovely everything Is!" the
girl mused to herself, "and what a pity
sin sud pain and hatred aro In the
earth."
Suddenly she emerged from the woods
nnd came, at the same moment, to an
Immense ravine, while beyond, stra'ght
nway lu the distance, stretched a lovely
low valley. She knew at once at the
sight of this that she had lost her way.
lor this scene was not In the direction*
t.lie had received.
Listening Intently, she fancied thnt to
the right of her she coiiM hear the fat t
MUiml uf an axe. To this she turned
ind soon esme tu where a young rain
Mlth a pale, sad, yet refined face, with
inrge, frank blue eyes, was hcwln; flick-
axe handles from some small timber
which he had cut down.
"Good afternoon," she said, In her
Hank manner. "I'm afraid I bare kvt
my way. Could yon tell me the direction 1 am ie take ta find Mr. Goiftey's
mfhe."
"With pleasnrr." ke replied, dropping
his axe. and coming towards ber with
the easy grace of a gentleman. 'If yon
will permit me, I will show yo:i tn the
clearing about Ave hundred yards ahead.
You will then bave to ford s creelt* aal
after thai-well, I think I csn ahow

OBTAINED TflBOUOH THE USE
OF DR. WILLIAMS' PINK
PILLS.
Mr, William army, ut Newmarket, Tells
How Bs Il<eouin�� Hals and Hearty at
the AdTaneed Age of Seventy After
Havlna Suffered Great Torture Frotn
Mclatlea and ftheuuiatl'in.
From the Express, Newmarket, Ont.
Mr. William Gray, who is well und
favorably known in the town of Newmarket and vicinity, is rejoicing over
his relcu.se from the pains of sciatica
and rhoumatism through thu use of
Mr. Williams' Pink Pills. A reporter
of the "Express called upon him for
the purpose of obtaining particulars
of tiio euro when Mr, Gray guve ihe
following story f-yr publication :���
"iVbout two and n half years ago 1
was seized with a very severe al lack
of rheumatism. Tho puin was eliiiply
torturing. At. times tho trouble was
stated in my knees, then fn my hips.
Kor nearly a yeur I sufTerod along,
working as twst I could, In the hepe
of being ablo to overcome '.he disease. During the day the pain wos
loss sovero, but at night it was juHt
us bad us ever, To Increase my torture I caught u cold, which resulted
in an attack of sciatica fn my right
leg. If I walked a short distance I
would be seized by sharp pains in the
hip and In time I became a used up
man; my appetite failed me, and I
could not rest at night on account of
thu pain. I tried ono medicine after
another without avail. 1 also consulted doctors with no better result.
was beginning to think thut I wns
doomed to suffer tho rest of my lift)
when one day a friend strongly advised me to try Ur, Williams' Pink
1'ills. I took his advice and procured
a supply of the pills and began taking them according to directions.
Hefore tho third box was finished I
noted a change for the better, so I
continued thu use of the pills till I
had taken teu or twelve boxes when
my trouble had olitirely disappeared.
To-day I am free from pain und feel
that life is worth living, oven nt lhe
ripe old age of seventy. 1 oun now
do a day's work with many men who
are twenty years younger than T. T
thank liud for my restoration to
health through the agency of Dr.
William's Pink Tills, and I trust
other similar sufferers will give them
a trial, for knowing what- those pills
have done for me I am .sure that
they cannot fail being us beneficial In
others similarly nillicted.
If the blood is pure and wlmlcsmi.c
disease cannot oxisl. The reason
Dr.Williams'Pink Pills cure so many
forms of disease is that they net directly upon the blood and nerves,
thus reaching the root of the trouble.
Other medicines act only on ihe symptoms of the trouble, and that is the
reason thu trouble always returns
when you cease these medicines. Dr.
Williams' I'ink Pills make permanent
cures in kidney troubles, rheumatism,
ryslpelus, anaemia and kindred diseases. But bo sure you get the genuine which bear the full muite Dr.Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People on
the wrapper around the box.

THE LOCAL'LEgTsLATUHF.

(From the Daily Coltaiai.)
Tb.ra wa. much lavorabla comment
upon th. apeech of the Chief Co.nmla*
aloner  ol Land,  and  WsTko on th.
Address.   Ha certainly anawered very
fully lbs. eriild.m. made agalnat hi*
administration ol h's department.   A.
a matter of faot, thoae were nol vary
aerious In their nature, and np attempt
was made to aupport them with proof,
hnt it   was   right   that the Minister
should give  them hi. attention, and
although ha began his remark, with
an apology (or occupying tha time of
the honn,  ha might have mado hi.
mind easy on that point, for tho number, were Tory glad to hear what he
had to uy.
Mr. Well, pointed out th.t th* ay..
tern of road* in charge of hie department aggregate, about 0,000 mile.. To
do ju.tice to .uch an extent of high'
way.   with   Ihe  necessarily   limited
amount ol money  at tha di.po.al ol
Ih. department la a matter of Impoeei-
blllty,   The MInlater can only do bl.
bait, and he la certain lo disappoint
[tome localltie.,   which ha would bt
glad to help, il It were poaiibl..   Mr.
Brown .poke ol tha desirability  of
dealing with .mailer ana. thoroughly
rather than  attempting lo oover too
much ground.   In theory thia i. very
good.   It it aomelblng lhat wt havt
all talked  abont.   Undoubtedly If It
were possible  tor the Department ol
Lands and  Work, to concentrate sll
its effort, on limited localities during a
reason, tbt roads thert wonld bt In
better shape  than nnder tbe present
sy.tem, and perhap. in th. long ran,
it woald bt Iht cheaper plan.   Wt do
not tee,   however,   how  this oan be
[ dont in a province of auch va.t dimension, a. Britiih Colnmbia, where tbt
Spulation it io .mall and Mattered,
ore thickly fettled and .mailer com-
munitlea  may  bt ablt to do thll, although wt do not know ol any which
[follow tht  practice; but If It  were
attempted In thii provlnco, thtrt wonld
be such an outcry ebat no government
could Hand' agalnat It; and what I.
vory muoh more to tho purpose, wc du
not tea how tht neglect of localltie.
wbich such a plan would entail could
be justified.
Under these circumstances the only
recourse left for the Minister I. to snr-
round himselt,with th. beat available
subordinates, and tndaavor to do ae
muoh parmanent work a. he caa from
| year to year. We think ll tho MInlater
would ahapt hi. polity to su lo work
in tht direction' of- completing tha
I highway! in tbe different localitlee as
rapidly as possible, he would be wis;,
aud we gather from thi observation.
of Mr. Well, that hi I. of thi. view".
But he would not be justified,.not po-
stically merely, but equitably, iu tun..
Ing (he deaf ear lo localities, lo whom,
| a. hi aay., half a loaf ii belter than
no bread. There I. no politic, lu good
road., and all partle. ought to unite in
aaai.iing In perfecting the sy.tem
unitr which the road money Is laid
{out.. We think there ie a general dl��-
politico among member, lo ual.t th.
Minister In making the most ef th.
grant for road., trail, and bridges, lor
.there I. bnt one opinion at to the ahto
lute necessity of keeping onr menu, of
travel in the best possible condition.
