The Nelson Oraad Jary it Complaining
of Fernie Justice.
Cranbrook Herald-
Re Gaol—We vidted the gaol and
found tbirty-two prisoner*, about half of
whom came from Fernie, in Bast Kootenay, and although we were unable in
tbe time at our disposal, and tbe distance
of Fernie from Nelson, to gather exact
facts, we are of tbe opinion tbat a condition of thing* exists in the local just ic-
lary in Fernie, to warrant an inveatiga-
tion by the attorney general'a department without delay.
The foregoing I* ■ clause which ap
pear* in tbe presentment of tbe grand
jury at the Nelson assizes, which was
made on Thursday afternoon. Just
wbat it mean* is left largely to Ibe imagination of tbe reader, a* everything in
tbe way of details ia lacking, but upon
it* face it would appear tbat tbe manner
in which "justice" haa been administer,
ed in Fernie ha* been so unsatisfactory
at least to the members of tbe grand
jury is a matter wbicb can only be determined by a duly constituted commission of enquiry, but now that the matter
has been thus passed upon by the Grand
jury, it becomes the obvious duty of tbe
attorney general, in justice to tbe men
whose reputations are clouded by lhe insinuations contained in the above paragraph, to see tbat tbe commission for
tbe enquiry issues without delay.
If, as it bas been intimated in Nelson,
some money judiciously placed, is a
more potent factor in determining cases
in Fernie than any otber, the sooner tbe
fact is proven and the guilty punished,
the better. But It must not be assumed,
without trial, that the local justiciary is
blameworthy. The stories of monetary
influence may be wholly without foundation, and even the aeemingly inconsistent sentences, whicb it is said caused
the members of tbe Nelson grand jury
sucb concern, may be capable of satisfactory explanation wben all of the cir*
cumstances surrounding them are properly understood.
Tbe above is from tbe last issue of the
Feroie Free Press. It is news to this
part of Ihe district and The Herald is at
a loss to understand Ihe meaning of tbe
declaration made by the grand jury at
Nelaon. uYet, in thi* case, aa in the
matter of tbe license commissioners, we
believe the best way and tbe fairest way
is to bold an early enquiry. It ia not
right to leave any officer's reputation
under a cloud, and a rigid inveat jgatiou
places every innocent man right before
the public. Tbe Herald coincides with
tbe Free Press on this point. Right is
right at all times, and on all occasions.
British Coloabia Budget
Brltiah Columbia will atart the next
financial year with a net deficiency of
•104,000. The cauae of thia la that tke
revenue for the current year ia leaa by
•3*18,000 than that of the previoua year.
With the wldeat area of any province
of the Dominion, the new revenue from
lands for the next year I* estimated at
only 940,000, though an equal amount of
collections from previous sales Is
expected to be made. Timber licenses
and royalties are expected to yield only
•80,000, which is •S.OOO less than last
year; timber leases, however, are
down forjlio.000, of which one-half
is for arrears. Mining receipts are put
down at 15,060, and the regrettable
feature is that, ln thi?, tbe province of
mines, that sun represents a decline of
•35,000 on last year. Besides the tax
oa mines there Is a mineral tax, measured by tbe product, which will produce tbis current year, (85,000. This Is
exclusive of coal, oa which there Is a
royalty, and which is expected to yield
1130,000, owing largely to the development of tbe Crow's Nest Mine, from
which the Minister expects 873,000, at
Its present rate of production. Real
property is expected to yield •130,000
aod personal property 880,000; the fact
tbat of this latter some three-foartbs Is
for arrears, shows serious delay. The
wild land tax Is •50,000. to which f75,-
000 of arrears have to be added. This
is nothing unusual; where tbe land
yields nothing, tbe taxes must be paid
out of some otber source. Tbe Income
tax, |40,000, shows an estimated Increase of »5,ooo. From fisheries only
•35,000 Is expected. Tke province expects to receive 815,000 as Ita proportion of the licenses. It will be noticed
that several of these Items are different from those found ln otber provinces.
The expenditure Is going back, and yet
there Is tbe deficiency above named.
In 19oo tke ezpendltar* reached 8233,*

The   Dominion   in   Better
Shape than Ever.
English  and  Americas  Papers Speak
of Canada'*  Great
We bave often said ln tbese pages
that tbe eyes of the monled world are
looking wltb favor 00 British Columbia
and Indeed on the whole of the Dominion. Tbese facta are most emphatically
born out by tbe newspapers of both
England and the United States.
Tbe London, England, Dally Mail says
iu tbe course of a long editorial..
''We bave seen the American boom bnt
now we bave a Canadian boom of such
magnitude that lt ia bard to aay where
It will end."
While, perhaps, British Columbia
may be said to be laboring under a
temporary depression, it Is very satisfactory to note the great, we might say
the unprecedented prosperity, enjoyed
by the rest of Canada, and although the
English papers call It a boom, with all
due defence to them, we say lt la not
bnt that lt Is the outcome of the
country's natural resources. The
customs returns for the month of April
1603 showed an Increase of 8513.731 00
over April 1901.
The New York Journal commenting
on the Influx of Americans Into the
Canadian north-west prints signed
letters from former citizens of tbe
Northwestern States, wbo declare tbat
they are entirely satisfied. The laws
are just, tbe taxation Is light, and
churches and schools are being rapidly
built, Many Americans, Indeed, wbo
bave taken farms are growing rich,
ani even firm-laborers And steady
employment at good wages. Moreover,
ln Western Canada there la hardly a
trace of tbat narrow provincialism even
yet to be fonud occasionally tn Eastern
Canada, which fondly cherishes the
old hatreds engendered by the war of
the Revolution. The people feel little
Interest ln old shibboleths, and there Is
absolutely ne prejudice against Americana or American Ideas. On tbe contrary, all of whatever nationality, are
welcomed on condition tbat they will
take a band In tbe Industrial development of the country. Apparently the
sleeping Empire beyond la awaking to
a realization of Ita great possibilities."
Prosperity brings prosperity and we
bave said as the greater part of tbe
Dominion Is coming to the front among
tbe nations, with leaps and bonnds.
British Columbia will not be left behind
long, and therefore Eaat Kootenav, a
country with so many and varied resources as abe bas witbln her bounds Is
sure to make a good country and 1 prosperous country,
If tbere Is a depression iu the
province jnst now it la not without
causes. Tbe low price of lead has been
blamed for a good deal of it but lt Is
not only this. A stable government Is
a thing tbat British Columbia has been
without for a long time and capital la
alwaya "shy" of a country who's government Is not stable.
Of course this last can and will be reminded and lt rests with the people of
British Colombia to remedy it. All
countries bave their ups and downs aud
British Columbia is no exception bat
tbe time Is coming and coming quickly
when our province will be able to hold
up ber head among the confederated
provinces and say she Is as well govern'
ed as any of tbem.    Ob let it be soon.

Edgar would be pleased at the trust reposed in him.    Everybody liked Edgar,

one of the men drew something from his

"What's that?" he said.

Tbe eye of the man with the revolver

struck up tbe weapon with his left arm
and thrust his right elbow witb all tbe
force be could command into the second
man's face. There was a sharp report,
and Edgar felt something like the sear of
a hot iron across his temple. The lingers
of his left band caught the ruilian's
wrist, and witb bis right hand he struck
him n crushing blow in tbe face. The
second mnn, dazed for a rnomeut, sprang
forward oud tried to grapple with Edgar
from behind, but the lotter, fighting desperately for possession of tbe revolver,
bad whirled his man half round, nnd for
n second or two it was impossible to
grasp him. *
"Joe!" gasped the first rullian. The
man who had been guarding Mny and
wbo bad paused irresolutely wben the revolver report rang out sprang forward
with a short billy in his hand. At the

and the first ruffian dropped to bis knees,

rush with a revolver shot. The fellow's

witb pain. At this the second mnn turned into the street and rnn swiftly down
the roadway. The third man followed
him, but much more slowly.
It had all happened so quickly—the halt,
tbe struggle, the discomfiture of tbe highwaymen—that the impulse to scream had
not come to Mny. She had stood on the

Same Expression*, the tne of Which
Should Be Reformed.
"Extra" Is an abused word. People
say "extra good" or "extra cheap" lu
order to Intensify "good" and "cheap."
But "extra" has no such force. So far
from Intensifying a given condition, It
denies it by indicnting that the thing
bo described lies outside the sphere or
quality named. Thus, "extra judicial"
does not mean more than ordinarily judicial, as though a judge had dredged
bis conscience In giving an opinion, but
outside of Judicial and therefore Incapable of being judged at all ln the prescribed way.
A grievous fault Is the use of "Identify" in a phrase like Ibis, "He Is Identified with the antivacelnatlon movement." A man can only. Identify blm- ij
self with another man or set of men.
Ho can Identify himself with the opponents of vaccination—and even here
the word carries a shade of meaning of
Its own, distinguishing the phrase from
such n one as "lie Joined the opponents
of vaccination."
One should not spenk of "high" or
"low" caliber; but, remembering the
meaning of "caliber," one should npply
to It only such adjectives as "great" or

If you apply this test to medicines for; coughs, colds and .similar ailments, you will select Dr. Chase's
Syrup of Linseed and 'J'urpentine,,because of the extraordinary merits which it possesses, and which have become known to tho public generally through years of trial. The sales of this remedy aro far In excess of any

Ur. Chase's Syrup ol Linseed nnd Turpentine is prized especially necnuso of its far-reaching effects, even in
the most serious cases of bronchitis, whooping cough, croup nnd osthma. It is not a mero relief for coughs,

j Tlie• lingering tortures of i-heumn-
tistn nre too well known to need description, but it is not so well known
that medical science now recognizes
that the primary cause of rheumatism is impure or impoverished bicod.
Tlie result is that hundreds of suller-
ers apply external remedies which
cannot possibly cure the trouble. The
only thing that will really cure iheu-
mutism is an internal medicine that
will enrich the blood and free it from
rheumatic taint. The surest, i|uick-
cst and most effective way to do this
is to take Dr. Williams''I'ink J.'JjIs,
which nre proved to have cured thousands  of cases  of rheumatism, muny
[of tbem nfter all oilier medicines had

Peevishness and Sleeplessness a Sure
Sign That Baby is Unwell.
When babies are restless, cross, or
peevish it is the surest possible sign
of illness. Well babies sleep soundly
aad nre cheerful and playful when
awake. Wben baby is cross too
many mothers give so-called "soothing" medicines, which contain opiates that deaden but do not remove
the trouble. What is Wanted is a
medicine thnt will go right to the
root of the trouble and make baby
sleep well, eat well and be cheerful
in a natural wny. Such a medicine
is Baby's Own Tablets* which are
sold under un absolute guarantee
that they contain neither opiates nor
otber harmful drugs. All mothers
wbo have used them for thoir little
ones speak of them in terms of wannest praise. Mrs. Albert Young,

Swnllovrlna; Salt Water.
Ono of the most beneficial features of
a sea bath Is the salt water Inadvertently swallowed by bathers. It Is a
wonderful tonic for (he liver, stomach
and kidneys. In mnny enses lt will
curo biliousness wben all drug preparations have failed. It Is peculiarly effective In ordinary cases of indigestion,
disordered stomach and Insomnia and
bns been known to produce excellent
results In mnny eases of dyspepsia.
Clean sen water Is full of tonic and
sedative properties. It won't hurt nny-
body. Indeed two or three big swallows of It would be of positive benefit
to nine bathers out of ten. It is not,
of course, n palatable or tempting doso
to take, but neither is quinine or calomel. You seldom If ever see an old
Bailor who is bilious or dyspeptic or a
victim to Insomnia, and why? For the
reason that nn ocean of good medicine
spreads all about his sky, and bo doses
himself copiously with lt whenever his
physical mechanism becomes tbo least
bit deranged.

Comment tka Blna-er Made on a Kin
Tba< Patti Rei-cired.
While the rivalry between Pnttl and
Gerster in San Francisco In 1S34 was
at its height It was mnde known that
General Crittenden, governor of Missouri, had given Patti a kiss. Thereupon Mme. Patti wns Interviewed,
when she spoke as follows:
"I had just finished singing 'Borne,
Sweet Home,' last Thursday evening
when a nice looking old gentleman,
who Introduced himself as Governor
Crittenden, begnn congratulating inc.
All of a sudden be leaned down, put
his nrms around me, drew tne up *t>
him nnd kissed me. He said. 'Mme.
Pnttl, I may never see you again, but
I cannot help it,' nnd before 1 knew It
he was kissing me. When a gentleman, nnd such a nice old gentleman,
too, and a governor of a great stale,
kisses one so quick that oue has not
time to see nnd uo time to object, wbat
can one do?"
The following dialogue on the subject between Mme. Gerster nnd a reporter who had Interviewed ber was
afterward published:
Modest Reporter—I suppose, Mme.
Gerstor, you have beard about that
kissing affair between Governor Crittenden and Patti?
Mme. Gerster—I have heard that
Governor Crittenden I 'ssed Pnttl before sho had timo to re-ist, but I don't
seo anything ln that to create so mueh
Modest Reporter (Interrogatively)—
You don't?
Mme. Gerster—Certainly not There
is nothing wrong in a man kissing a
woman old enough to bo his mother.

"Commence" op "DeBlrt."
Commence or begin? The best writers, and the best speakers, also, prefer
"begin" to "commence" for nil everyday purposes. The reason for this preference Is not as sonic hnvo said, that
"begin" Is older, for "commence" Is of
very respectable antiquity; nor Is It,
ns others hnve said, tbnt "begin" is of
Anglo-Saxon origin, for words of
French or of Latin origin that have
beeu fully adopted Into our lauguage
nro Just as good English ob native
words. It Is rather thnt "begin" bns
tbe strength of simplicity, whereas
"commence" has fallen Into disrepute
from being associated with tbo cheap
Huery of writing.—Elizabeth A. WIthey

Oft.Mi Found Himself Unable to Lie
Down Without the Greatest Pain
—Cured by Dodd's Kidney i'ills.
Aniprior, Ont., Feb. 8.—(Special)-
A very mnarknble cure ot Backache
and Kidney Trouble has Just been
brought to notice at Basin Depot,
near here.
Wr. J. JI. Martin suffered for oVer
eighteen years with Lome Hack .so
that he actually couldn't walk or
lie down without, enduring tho most
dreadful pain. Ifu tried many meOi-
cines without getting relief, and was
very much discouraged.
Dodd's Kidney Pills wero recommended lo him and he commenced n
treatment. and improved \ Dry I. si
from tho first. As the treatment
continued the improvement Increased
until he was able lo go about liis
work as well as over.
The theory so often advanced thai
tho kidneys are tho most important
organs of tho body and that n large
percentage of the sickness and pain
which humanity suffers, Is duo fo
imperfect Kidney act Ion seems Lo be
amply proven in this particular rase,
for ns booh as Dodd's Kidney Pills
regulated and restored tho natural
action of tho kidneys all Mr. Martin's  troubles left  him  at   once.
Many romarkablo cures by Dodd's
Kidney Pills have been published,
but certainly none ns wonderful as
that of MT. Martin.
lie has written a long letter Riving the farts of his case, and his tin-
tu ai (ement. thnt lie was al It) to
work <omfortably once nr-ru after
such a prolonged period of suffering,
has started people wondering if there
is any cuse of Lame Back. Rheumatism or other Kidney Trouble that
Dodd's Kidney Pills will not cure.
An  ignorant    man  is a    merciless
It's a waste of time to repeat hair-
raising stories to a bald-headed man.
J.W. Wilder, J. r..I*afureviiio, N. X.. writes*
"I nm snbjtiti . to severe ntt;;clfaof Colic and
Kidhoy i.)ilik'.ii!ly,n..d Jlud I'urmoloo's Pills nf-
ford me preufc ruhef, wliito «!1 other remedies
have failed. They aro the best medicine 1 have
ever used." In fact so great is the powurof

of almost * .pry n*imo uud uaturo aro driven
from tho body.
Dow It Feci*, (a tVtnr a Coal of Thin
Fearful   Mixture-.
People who roncl of tarring nutl fratli-
erlug know tbnt tho punishment Im a
very unpleasant one, but few Imagine
how terribly painful mid dangerous It
Is. In Wyoming I onco saw a mnn who
had boen tarred nnd feathered, and. nl-
tbougli ho fully deserved the discipline,
I could not help pitying him. Hardened tar Is very hurd to remove from
the skin, nnd when feathers are added
It forms n kind of cement that sticks
closer thnn a brother. As soon ns the
lar sets the victim's suffering begins.
It contracts ns it cools, and every one
of the little veins en the body Is pulled,
causing lhe most exquisite agon;. The
perspiration Is entirely stopped, nnd
unless the tnr Is removed death Is certain to ensue.
But tho removal Is no easy (ask nud
requires several days. The tar cannot
bo softened by the npplicntlon of bent
nnd must be peeled off bit by bit,
sweet oil being used to make the process less painful. Tbe Irritation to Ihe
skin Is very grent, ns the hairs ennnot
be disengaged, but must bo pulled out
or cut off. No man can lie cleaned of
tar lu n single day, ns the pain of the
operation would be too excruciating
for endurance, and until litis Is done lie
lias to Stiller from a pain like thai of
ten thousand pin pricks. Numbers of
men have died under (he torture, and
none who hnve gone through It regard
tar nnd feathering ns anything but u
most fearful Infliction.—Exchange.

The most Important employment of
