Pass Coal Co. held In Toronto at which
Senator Cox, president of the company, explained that there wa. no intention on their part to evade contract, with Kootenay smelters; that
they were willing to nndertake to
supply the local demand and to furnish
all the coal or coke needed. He said
th. object of the oompany was to extend and develop the trade in general,
and inatead ol restricting their output
to 1,800 ton. per lay, as they are
forced to do al preaent, they would pnt
on a staff thai would turn out 10,000
to 19,000 tonsper day. In other words
S��nntor Cox aad. It clear that they
are not going to give up one market In
favor of another, bat to add to their
present bualsni by taking on the
American trade. This programme i.
decidedly interesting aod it remain, to
be aeen whether _the people of thi.
country an going, to give up their
prospects of a hug. export trade in
coal, which will moan thousands of
dollar, per y��ar In royalty, merely for
the .ake of keeping the Kootenay as a
private preserve for the C.P.R. Here
il an Opportunity to develop southern
Britieh Columbia Into a teeming centre
of indu.try, ansl mu.t it be sacrificed
on the altar of protection���for the
Canadian Paoiflo Bailway. Behind
all the opposition to this scheme is the
influence of the great Canadian corporation, whioh doe. not want a line of
railway connected with the Oreat
Northern for fear of competition, not
only In the coal carrying trade but in
the general carrying business. We
do not want to be understood as wishing any harm to Canada's transconti
nental line, but we do believe in com
petition. We would prefer to see tbis
line built by no Oovesmmeat, bat In.
lieu of that we would like to see the
Northern Paoiflo extended as a competing line, lu the event of their
dealing unfairly with B C. .inciter,
the Government can easily regulate
matters by as export duty.

gariam are a gsnerou. people and they

A serious state of affairs is threatened in Canada If tbe Morgan-Bock-
feller syndicate succeed in obtaining
control of the Dominion Steel Co. and
the Dominion Coal Co. of Sydney, Cape
Breton. The huge trust is making
every effort possible to buy up the
stock of this Canadian Industry. Some
peopra claim that the deal Is already
completed, while H. M. Whitney, pre-
sidentof the Dominion Steel Co,, claims
that the deal Is not yet through. The
following interview on this subject Is
taken from the Toronto World:
"Itis a good thing," said the gentleman interviewed, "for the promoters of the Sydney enterprises, (the
Dominion Steele Co.) and a good thing
also for the steel trust. The former
are playing for safety, while the latter
by combining the Sydney and Pittsburg propertiea, stand to get enoagh
mbney out of the Canadian taxpayer,
In the way of bounties, to help towards
paying a dividend on the bonds oi the
trnst. The plant at Sydney is calculated to produce 5,000,000 tons of if otl
annually. Thi. means that the Canadian people will have to pay the trust
$15,000,000 annually In bounties at $3
per ton.
"It the Trust Should increase the
plant at Sydney to give an output of
10,000,000 tons, it would mean that
in 1908, when by the sliding scale the
bounty will disappear, tho taxpayers
of Canada will have paid Mr. Morgan
and his associates 1100.000,000.
'���This mean, that Canada will contribute one-third ot the bonded indebtedness of thegigantio Amerioan syndicate
through the bounty system.
"The worst feature ot the business,
however, is this, tbat Canada will be
paying millions annually to the Morgan trust to aid in killing all British
trade in neutral markets, because the
Sydney plant is to be used exclusively
tn manufacturing for export. Tbe
Pittsburg and other plants In the United States will manufacture for the
American market, and Sydney will
compete against England. Through
the $3 bounty Canada will be turned
into a olub for the use of monopolists
in pnr.uing the'., competition uRninat
There is another feature of the matter not lea. serious. If the Canadian
Parliament ehould repeal the bounty,
Morgan and Bockfeller will promptly
shut down the Sydney works, a policy
which will suit them almost as well as
to draw the bounty. The deal gives
them absolute control over the Sydney
concern, and they are made complete
masters ot the situation.
"The Government at Ottawa will bo
in the clutch of the trust. If they
annuled the bounty they would lose
Nova Scotia, they would stir up the
concerns and ail who are Interested in
them at Hamilton, Midland and the
'Soo.' The political party in newer
that would defy the trust would be
deader than any herring that ever was
"Now this is the situation with the
Morgan syndicate controlling the iron
and ooal Industries on tbe Atlantic
seaboard ot Canada, Interested also In
the ooal of the Crow'a Nest Pass, and
reaching out for otber enterprises, and,
incidentally, taking possession of tlio
Government of Canada, thiough control of the party. The outlook is
f .-aught witb deep concern for Canada.
Mr. Whitney in the following letter
to the Toronto Star denies any intention of forming a combine or of selling
to the Morgan syndicate:
To the Editor of tbe Star: I have
heretofore elated that there is no truth
in report that the Dominion Iron nnd
Steel Company haa sold out to Morijan
syndicate. I do not know bow I can
be more explicit,
Nor have there been any negotiations
looking tn such purchase. Neither is
there likely to be any temptation offered
in the way of exchange of securities
which would Induce stockholders ot
Steel company to part with their pro
Considering our nsttlinl advantages
and our low fixed oharges, we occupy
a unique aud impregnable position.
We shall join no syndicate, but shall
go on and develop our enterprise on
lines originally projected which results
In the actual making of iron have do
mon.trated to be aound. (Signed) H*

March 4th) snys: He Wet was moving

about 40 miles north of Phllippopolis.

If the War oflice confirms the report
thore will be grent rejoicing through*

Colesberg, March 4.��� The blame tor
General De Wet's escape is placed on
the system rather than on the commanders pursuing him. It has been
impossible to direct operations by telegraph, and the feeling is that great
discretion should be allowed commanders in the field. Gen. De Wet
marched five miles a day faster than
the swiftest Britisli column.

In its report of the proceedings of
the House, on Friday last, The Province had the following which will be
read With interest and pleasure by the
electors of this Constituency:���The debate this afternoon wa. concluded by
Hon. W. C. Wells, tho chief commissioner of lands and works. He was
greeted with hearty saivas of applaus
from both sides of the chamber, for
whatever charges are leveled agrinst
other minister, he rarely comes in for
criticism. All members of I he legisi

in the morning often until midnigh

presides, he has obtained, siuce taking

The New star,
The new star which hus suddenly
appeared in the constellation of Perseus
is one of the most Isnportant astronomical events which have occured for
many generations. Not since 1670 has
& similar phenomenon been presented
to the eye of man. It will, therefore,
be watched with untiring interest,
while it lasts, which may be for some
weeks or months. It is noteworthy
that the star was apparently not visible a week ago, and yet today it ie ne
bright as some ot the first magnitude
stars. ���  ,
Tho Nova, for such is the name
given to such stars, will be found in
the very beart of tl.e constellation
mentioned, midway, ns it were, between the three brightest stars in it,
of which one, its nearest neighbor to
the southwest, is tlio celebrated variable Algol. It is shining with the
brilliancy ot Capella, the splendid sun
in Auriga, which it resembles to a marvellous degreo in size nnd color. Capella
is to theeast of the new star, wbicb will
probably be known as Nova Persol,
and which should be observed by every
student of science. On Saturday night
when seeing was very pood, it was
examined both telescopicnlly and spec*
troscoplcally In Toronto by a number
ot the members ot tho Astronomical
Society. The star is a beautiful object,
being of a whitish-yellow, with a tint
of purple. It is said to present a peculiar spectrum, having many dark and
hydrogen lines.   No doubt the Nova
ill prove to be one of the most interesting astronomical pl.ono.nen.. of the
year, and possibly, of the century, for
there appear to hnve been not more
than four of such stars, including the
new one, since 138 B, C.
An Ideal Storage Butterv.
New York, Feb. 24.���The Now Tork
Journal today makes the announce-
ment that Edison has Invented the
storage battery for which electricians
and inventors havo been searching for
yeare. The Journal gives Mr. Lewis
E. Bomeblcr, n member of a big law
firm In New York, as ita authority for
the statement that Edison's invention
is something entirely new. Without
going into details, he says that Edison's new battery will be able to produce power so cheaply that coal will
be worth little more than sand. Steam
smoke, soot and ashes will nearly disappear and coal will be used for very
lew pnrpoees. Mr, Bomeisler sajs

OttiYWu, March I.���In the Dominion
house of commons yesterday Mr.
Kobinson, ot Elgin, moved a resolution that railways that have received a franchise or uid from the country should furnish members of the
house with free transportation upon
tho certilieate of lhe clerk of the
house, and that no mileage indemnity be paid to members while in attendance upon their purlin ment nry
Mr. Vuttee, of Winnipeg, supported
the resolution. He laid speeiul stress
on the impression abroad that railway legislation was facilitated tn
the house through the influence of
passes given by railways lo members.
Mr. Ulchnrdsou, of Lisgar, did uot
believe legislation was influenced by
passes. He considered that government mileage allowance wns intended to Include, besides actuul transportation expenses, also the cost of
meals, 1'ullman, and perhaps time
lost. However, he was prepared to
support the resolution.
Mr. Maclean, East York, came out'
.Igorously against the practice of
members travelling on passes and
still drawing their travelling allowance from the government. He snid
some members justified such a prns-
tice because of the sessional indemnity. M?. Maclean pronounced himself in favor of an increased sessional Indemnity.
Mr. Schell, of Glengarry, Beeined to
think tlie proper remedy would be
for the government to furnish pnsses.
Mr. It. L. Borden said he did not
believe members were influenced in
their action on railway legislation
by pusses. He thought it might bo
better If members were to pny their
fare In the ordinary wny and have
this expense mado good at Ottawa.
The premier pronounced the proposed measure a drastic one. He
held it was a tradition of British
legislation not to compel the giving
of a service without compensation.
Ownership wns sacred nnd should
not be invaded without compensation. Tho fact that subsidies hnd
been granted to railways was no argument in favor of the proposition.
In order    that the    whole question
ight be fully considered he moved
the adjournment of the debate.

Suddenly, us he paused for breath,

her, hnt being, to the man's wirpr.se,

of the range of his curses.
When she was sure she was quite ont
nf the possibility of the man's overtaking her, she felt a desire to rest, but
knowing if she did this she wonld- faint,
she kept swimming on, biting her lip-.
until the blood ran down her chin as
ihe slowly propelled herself through the
ripples. After a time a yacht passed near
her. Sbe colled, and they heanl her.
Very tender hands lifted her outfof tbo

it was not altogether unexpected, and
she hnd lu a measure prepared heraelf

according to her own gunge of matters,
that the event did not have that blighting effect upon her physical or mental

to say how ahe came to he In the tar*
rlble plight In whleh lhe yacht owners
found her, and resolutely withstood all
temptation to make a charge against
her cousin. When all preparations had
been made for her return to the morth

which the following paragraph is tak.-n:
"(tod has my thanks for preserving

with a laugh, to Salter, who seemed te

Of all the bores In police court proceedings the talkative witness is the
most tiresome. Tbere are Individuals
so constituted thot they Insist upon going into the minutest details when asked
a simple question. They seem to think
tbat they must relate their whole per*
soual history, tell family secret a and lay
hare the story of their wbole past life,
uo matter how colorless or uninteresting
it limy lw to the judge, lawyers and spectators. Sometimes It requires tho entire
luucliinery of the court to shut them off,
und even theu they will begin to bust
again at the drat opportunity. A char-
ncier of this sort cn lined more amusement tban pain tho other doy wheu he

tbe fiirmrr-polltlcliin, rising In the witness box and shooting a withering glance

There are thousands of youug girls
throughout Canada who owe their
good health, if not life itself, to the
timely use of Dr. Williams' I'ink Pills
for Pale People, Among these is Miss
Maud Patterson, whose home is iu
iho vicinity of Slrathroy, Ont. To a
reporter who interviewed her, Miss
Patterson said : "Several years ago
I began to suffer from headaches,wns
easily tired oul, and could see thai
my health was not, whut. it hud been.
At first I did not think there was
anything serious the matter, and
thought tho troublo would puss away.
In this, however, I was mistaken,
for as lime went on 1 became weaker. The headaches attacked me more
frequently, my appetite failed. If 1
stooped I would grow so dizzy that
1 would almost fall over. I became
very pale, nnd always felt tired nnd
worn out. I was advised to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, and I have reason to rejoice that I followed the advice, and as I continued their use, it
seemed us though day by day they
were imparting new life to me. My
appetite improved, the headaches disappeared, the pallor left my face, the
dizziness that bothered me so much
also disappeared, nnd I felt altogether like a different person. 1 feel thut
I owe my renewed health entirely to
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, nnd ns I
know that there nre many girls who
suffer us I did I would urge Ihem to
lose no time in giving this medielho
n fair trial."
The case of Miss Patterson certainly curries With it a lesson to others
who mny be prilo, languid, easily
tired, or subject to headaches, or
tho othor distressing symptoms thnt
mark the onward progress of anaemia. In cases of this kind Dr. Williams' I'ink Pills will give more certain und speedy results than uny
other medicine. Tliey act promptly!
