All stock in the Northwestern Development syndicate or the Gold
Finch Mining company which has
not been exchanged lor stuck in tbe
Camborne Mining company, with the
assessment ol live cents a share on llie
Camborne stock paid, is now delinquent and is being sold by the Camborne Mining company tor the price
of tbe assessment, five cunts a share
on the Camborne stock, whioh is
equivalent to 11 cents a share ou the
Northwestern stock.
Secretary John B, Curtis, oi Cal-
uinel, reports lhat there iB equivalent
nf ubout 75,0011 slum's of Camborne
stock delinquent, und uf this amount
between 15,000 and 20^000 shares wore
sold ou Deo. 12th, and loth,,those being the first two days of dellnqtionoy.
He says that the finauoialcondition
ol this concern is now better I ban it
ur any of its predecessors bus been
since December, 1902, when the
Northwestern Development syndicate
lirst begun to incur an indebtedness,
From that time forth the financial
situation grew gradually worse, until
entire liquidation was averted only by
a fow of the heaviest stockholders
forming a triisleu's company which
issued a blanket mortgage, nnd paid
off tbe indebtedness, at the same timo
preventing a sheriff's Bale.
This mortgoge of $15,0110 is now thu
only claim of any nature against the
property, quit claim deeds to (he entire group of claims and all equipment
having been secured. Tbe property is
entirely out of danger from loieolosuro,
as the mortgage syndicate is composed of tho stockholders who have
tbe greatest interests at stake, being
composed, at tbe same lime, of some
uf the strongest and most trustworthy
financial Interest, of tbe copper country.
There is now in the company's
treasury a (und ol between $5,0011 and
$11,000, derived (rum the present
assessment nud delinquent stuck sale.
Thero are uu plana to begin any work
on the property until Ibis fund is
materially strengthened und enough
is iiii baud to make an attack that
will promise suine ilelinile results.
Thestampmill is said tube in good
condition and a watchman is looking
after its safekeeping.
There nro two methods by whioh
more money may be raised—tlm further sale of stock or the culling of
another assessment. It bus not been
determined which method shall be

benches being littered with cases of
liquor. Indians have broached some

Sometimes we havo pumpkins eul

Ill my experience llm most difficult
i iiiie to make milk Is tho latter p i"t
of October nud early November wh,-u
ihi' grass begins to suffer from fco-t
nnd tlm cold winds chill the cows
Sllngo fills this gap admirably. If
pasture is .'hort, we sometimes food
ri.in along from tho lime WO I'll

pumpkins to tho tons when thoy
camo in al night. When these woro
gone, we BUbstlluted a food of earlv
cut hay. Tlm shrinkage in the milk
il iw was very marked, being nearly
a quart per animal. This happens,
even with good pasture al our command. Our first severe frost did no:
con,"   until   October    -.">.     We then
opened the silo and began I ling -i
ball bushol or about in silage lbs.
per cow. In Is hours tho flow of
niilli was again Incroasod to normal.
The amount of sllngo to bo given a
cow, doponds largely upon the uni-
mal. When silage Is abundant an
tlm cows are in tlie stable, I lia
my Quornseys will average, in llm
two herds, nliuiiL 85 to It) pounds
siliig,: per day with an additional
grain ration of about six pounds
which is supplemental with a small
feed of live or six pounds of hay at;
noon. It Is our custom tu feed tho
grain just boforo milking. 'Ihe silae/c !
Is also given llie cows after the milk-1
ing is done, while the hay is given ■
them at noon. This is largely al
matter of convonloncc, Cows will do
jus( us well after they get accustomed lo it without lho noon feed, i; i
they have all ihe roughage limy'
wanl. at night nud morning. This I
period is no longer than from six
o'clock at night lo five o'clock lu thu,

Q There is no specific for
consumption. Fresh air, exercise, nourishing food and
Scott's Emulsion will come
pretty near curing it, if there
is anything to build on. Millions of people throughout the
world are living and in good
health on one lung.
(§ From time immemorial the
doctors prescribed cod liver
oil for consumption. Of
course the patient could not
take it in its old form, hence
it did very little good. They
cm take
and tolerate it for a long
time. There is no oil, not
excepting butter, so easily
digested and absorbed by the
system as cod liver oil in the
form of Scott's Emulsion,
and that is the reason it is so
helpful in consumption where
its use must be continuous.

The Mayor, Aid. Palmer, Trimble,
Tapping, Howboii, Caley, Abrahamson
A letter was read from W. Cross,
who is in charge of C. P. R. mechanical department, asking quotation, for
50 b. p. electrical power.
R. Gordon was called in and said an
expenditure of $6,500 to put in a new
machine and equipment would enable
the power to bo provided. A sluicegate would be required to allow of continuous running. A Btcam plant
would cost $111,000 to $20,000 to install and would require an income ol
$9,000 to maintain it. It would be a
long time before the city could got
that revenue. It was a mistake they
did not put in a power machine instead of the new one thoy bought. Ho
pointed that nut to the bite Mayor but
lie was opposed to it.
Tbe Mayor suggested referring the
matter to the Fire, Water and Light
Committee to go fully into with Mr.
Aid. Abrahamson pointed out it
would be necessary tu ascertain what
minimum power would be used daily,
as it would not (lo for the city to go to
the expense of putting in a plant and
then find they were not getting
enough revenue from it to make it

by Aid. Tapping, the matter wus re-

From Canadian Woodmen, asking

He recommended a brand bo used for
city tools.
Aid. Palmer asked him whether bo
would recommend a brand to work by
electricity or lire.
Aid. Trimble reported Mr. Gordon
bad everything running satisfactory
at tbe power-house, and the work was
being pushed ahead but was waiting
logs. A shed was required for storing
lire wood.

the city must provide its own gaol.

as that could not lie tolerated.
Aid. AbrahaniBon also urged the

Portugal's assurance to the world
Hint the slave trade his been stopped through the establishment of
Portuguese military stations alung
the slavo-trado route is discounted
by Mr, Nevison in bis language:
"There are two ferries over the
Ciinnzu, one close under the Portuguese fort, the other a comfortable
distnnco upstream, well out of ob-
Bervation, It is a typically Portuguese arrangement, The commandant's duly is lo stop the slave trade
but how con he he expected to see
what is going on a milo.or so away!
Even as you come down to the river
you find slave shackles banging on
the bushes. You cross the stream
in dugout canoes, running tlm chance
of being upset by one of thn hippos
which snort and pant a little farther up. You enter the forest again
and now the shackles arc thick upon
the trees. This is tbo place whoi'o
most of the slaves, being driven
down Irom the interior, ore untied.
It is safe to let them loose here.
The Cuauza is just in front, and behind llu-in lies the lung stretch of
Hungry Country, which they could
never get through alive il they tried
to run hack to their homes. So it
ia that the trees on (he western edg>)
of the Hungry Country boor shackles
in profusion—shackles for (he hands,
shackles for lho feet, shackles for
three or four slaves who are clamped together at night. The drivers
hang them up wilh lho idea of using
them again when they return for the
next consignment of human merchandise; bul, as a rule, I think, they
find 11 easier tu make new shackles
as they arc wanted.
"A shackle is easily made. A native hacks out nn oblong hole in a
log of wood with an axe; it must be
big enough for two hnmlB or two
feet, tn pass through, nnd then a
wooden pin is driven through tho
hole from aide lo side, an that the
blinds or feet runout stir until it is
drawn nut again. Tho twu bands
or feet do not necessorily belong to

over for the present,
"For many months after the war
even the trafiic to San Thome almost ceased. It lms begun again
now, and is rapidly increuslng. An
order was issued in December, 19U4,
rcqblrlng the government agents to
press on the supply. Hut at present
tho slaves ne coining down in smaller gangs. 'I"hey are not, aa a rule,
tortured; they are shackled only at
nigtil, and tho traders lake a certain
amount ul pains to conceal the
whole traffic, ur nt least to mako
it look respectable.
"As to secrecy, they ore not entirely successful. A man whose word
no olio in Central Africa would think
ot doubling hns jusl sent down notice Irom the Interior lhat a gang ot
251) slaves passod through thu Nuna-
kandundu district, bound for tbo
coast, in tho end of February
(I90.->), shackles and all. The man
who brought the message had done
his best'to avoid" the gang, fearing
for his life. I ought to have met
them near Mashlko if they had not
taken a by-path or been broken up
into small groups.
"It was such a small group that
I met within u day's journey of Cal-
nla, the largest truding-liouse in
lliho. I wns walking nt about half
an hour's distance from the road,
when suddenly I camo upon a parly
of eighteen or twenty buys and four
men hidden in the bush. At sight of
mo they nil ran awny, the men driving (he boys before them. But they
left two long ehicottes ur ajnmlioks
(hide whips) hanging on the trees,
ns well as the very light loads they
had with them. After a time I returned, and they ran away again.
1 then noticed that they posted a
man on a tree-tup to observo my
movements, and ho remained there
till I trekked on with my own people."
Of his meeting with another slave
caravan Ihe writer suys:

It is an old saying that once a
lie gets a start it is hard to overtake it, In connection with the
late school trustee election- for this
city a Blory was actively circulated
f,.,r some time before the election
that tbe late chairman of the
Board and another of the candidates had in view making a change
in the headmastership of the public
school. None who knew these men,
and the high estimation in which
they hold the teaching staff, be
lieved the canard, but tbe story
was confimed by some who ought to
have known better, apart from those
who circulated it for purely mischievous and personal reasons. In
justice to the men affected we have
investigated the charge most thoroughly and find, as we expected,
there is not a word of truth in it.
All who were connected with its
circulation should be ashamed of
We si all be glad to show any
persons interested the correspondence in our possession on tlie matter, proving beyond question (he
gross wrong done these men. Mr.
Lindmark has been connected with
the  Kevelstoke school  for many
Thu Attorney-general has introduced a bill consolidating and
amending tho municipal law, and
milking better provision for bylaw
powers thun have hitherto existed.
The late oity council sent in some
suggestions for amendment of the
existing law, and the opportunity
is one which the city councils
throughout the province should
take advantage of to make suggestions to the government with a
view to overcoming any dilliculties
of administration they have found
in the existing laws.
The amending bill introduced by
the Chief Commissioner provides
thnt all timber cut on Crown lands
must be used or manufactured in
the province, and in case of this
not being done the leaso shall be
cancellod. As an alternative provision is made that the government may seize timber which il is
proposed to oxport und refuse to
release same until such security is
given as shall ensure its being manufactured in the province.
With reference to our article in
iast issue on reducing the electric
light rates in the city, we arc informed the rale at New Westmin
ster is 12c. against 17c, the rate
for Revelstoke.
C. P. R. Freight Train Runs
into Passenger.
On Wednesday night a. No. 96 wn,
on her way from Vancouver east, and
Hearing Kamloops, the engine broke
down and the train had to be stopped
for temporary repairs. A brakeniun
wa, sent back to llag against any rear
trains and the repairs having been
effected the Bagman was called in.
On stinting again, however, It, was
found the engine refused to work and
the llagmaii was sent out again, but
before reaching hi, point a freight
train, with Engineer T. .Sweeney in
charge of the engine, came along and
run into the passenger train badly
damaging the pullman car.
The result might have been eerioua
but for the presence uf mind of Conductor Risteen, who saw the light of
the (rcighl train and immediately
signalled the engineer to move on
with a view to lessening the shock
and giving the freight train time to
pull up.
The passengers paid the highest
encomium, to Conductor Risteen for
the action ho took and whioh undoubtedly fined the passenger train
from more serious consequence
It is stilted the peculiar circumstances of the accident are snob that
no one waa to blame lor it, but an
investigation will be held by the 0. P.
R, ollicials of tbe Vancouver division.
The Mail-Herald will be delivered
to any part ol tho city, or mailed to

"An Act to consolidate uud amend

Drury (Victoria City) had givon
notice for a motion that an order be
granted for a return showing number
of timber lenses grunted during lilOf)
on Vancouver Island with names ol

moved this motion, as Drury was nut

about one Henry Fry, a civil engineer,
and wanted lo know whether he waB
paid or employed, and if so, how
much, on a new road from Cowichan
station to the King Solomon mines,
how much it cost, and why it was not
full width, lie was promised an answer shortly.
Murphy (Curiboo) wanted to know
if .1. P. ISabcock is iu the employ of
the Government. Replied to in the
affirmative. Then now much wa, be
paid ? $3000 a year. Oil,and did the
Government give permission to Mr.
Bnbcock to net us a meiubor oi the
Fisheries Commission? They did.
And bow long bad the lish hatchery
at Seton Lake been in operation ?
Since July, 1903, replied the Government. Then Mr. Murphy asked how
many salmon eggs bad beeu placed
in the hatchery each year, bow many
young salmon bad been released each
year, and bow many men were employed this season thereat.
Jiuw, Mr. Murphy's sudden interest
in Salmon iB understood owing to the
locality where be resides, to be largely
of uu academic nature. Hi, face, as

The Atlin County Court Hill was
read a third time und passed. The
Act to amend tbe Small Debts Act
wa, reported complete in I ninmittc
without amendment.
In moving the second reading of the
Aet to amend tbo Assessment Act,
1003, Finance Minister Tatlmv referred to the fact that the Act as
brought in the session before last was
a long one. Some amendment, were
made to it last session, but experience
bad shown tbo advisability of further
cnange,. The purpose of the present
amending Act wa, to make more dear
the meaning ol one or two sections of
that measure, and lo obviate the
possibility of misconstruction of its
intentions in other section,. There
wa, nothing in il to raise the taxes in
any way, in (act, it wa, a, proposed
decidedly in favor of the taxpayer, ono
of it, princip, I provisions lieing that,
where land, revert to the Crown for
taxe,, the taxpayer shall have a longer time to redeem his hind.
The Bccond section ol tin proposed
Act, continued the Finance Minister,
which dealt with real property luxation, wa, iu order to define more
clearly to what person, the lower rule,
of taxation shall apply. The intention of the original clause hud lieen
to help the poorer landholder, by a
low rate of taxation on property not
exceeding |2,000 in value, but it bus
been found in tome case, that people
possessed two tracts of land in the
same district, both under $2,1)110, yet
together aggregating nearly $4,01X1,
and that these persons bad taken advantage of the smaller rate, while
owner, ol land at $2,500 or $3,000 hud
to pay the higher rale, This new
clauae would remedy by taxing a
man', aggregate holding, in one
The next amendment, aaid dipt.
Tatlnw, waa to make clearer the rat*
at whioh income tax should be
charged. It had been found on experience that the original clause dealing w'-.h thi, admitted of much mi,
construction, and the intent nl the
present meaiure wa, to cancel that
clause entirely and bring in a new
one, in which the' rates of taxation
were the same, but tbe wording so
definite that the intention of tbo Act
should uo longer be misunderstood.
The speaker went into extensive details showing the trouble that had
ariten Irom misconstruing the intent
of the original clause. He farther
explained a couple of minor section,;
one to amend a clerical error, and the
other to extend the time for the redemption of land.
Hawthornthwaite (Nnnsimo) approved the bill, and paid several
compliment, to Ihe Minister of
finance on being the right man for hi,
office. He detired, however, to
suggest the exemption from taxation
of the small farmer whose holding wa,
under $1,000.
Murphy (Cariboo) moved the adjournment of the debate.
Hon. Mr. McBride introduced an
"Act for the relief and ditincorpnrati, n
of the Municipality of Dewdney,"
which patsed its first rending.
That the {rightful lo„ of Hie in tbe
wreck ol the Pacific Coast Steamship
Co.', ateatner "Valencia" on the west
coast of Vancouver Island the night
before laat had profoundly impressed
the members of the Legislature was
evident thi, afternoon, when, on the
House meeting, Mr. Manson (Alberni)
moved, Oliver (Delta) seconding, a
strong resolution to the Dominion
Government, asking lor the establishment of life-saving station, on thi,
dangerou, coast-line. Messrs. McBride and Hawthornthwaite made
strong speeches in support of the resolution, which carried unanimously.
On report of the Bill to amond the
Small Debts Act, Parker Williams
(Newcastle) moved an amendment to
exempt from garnishee wage, ol workmen not exceeding $100 monthly.
This special piece of clue, legislation
did not meet the unanimous approval
of tha House at all, although the
Attorney-General lent it hi, support,
and, after a rather warm debate, it
wa, defeated by a mixed vote uf 22 to
17, some Government member, voting
lor it and others against it.
The rest of the day was devoted to
the discussion of Dewdney Relief Bill.
John Oliver, who has, in connection
with school taxation, persistently
made out himself and bis constituency to be a couple of deserving mendicant*, opposed the bill furiously;
thereby drawing upon his head the
delicate attention of Hawthornthwaite
of Nanaimo, who supported the measure and seined the opportunity to
make what is vulgarly known as a
"holy show" ol the Delta member,
Murphy (Cariboo) attempted to
adjourn the debate, but hi, motion
was defeated, and he was ruled out of
order whan attempting tn tpeak.
Tha House finally adjournod on
motion oj Mr. Wilson.
