Toronto, Maich s.���Premier and
Treasurer Ross delivered his first budget speech this afternoon. The esti-
matos for the ooming year are 111,788,-
298. This is an increase over thu esti-
mutes of last year of 1818,794 mid au
iiicreaae over the expendidures of last
year of (849,448, Increased revenue is
iooked for almost entirely from tho
Grown Lauds Department and the in
creased expenditure will bo devoted
to educational, increased asylum accommodation, and particularly to good
road making, in which direction the
Government will spend 1100,000 yearly
for ten years. Premier Ross estimates
the ooming linancial year will show a
substantial surplus of $200,000. Concerning funds held in trust by the
Dominion, bearing interest at 6 per
cent, and referred to in tbo report of
the commission the other day, Ross
said the Government had no thought
of withdrawing them from the Dominion Government. Correspondence
touching on that subject had been
solely with a view to seoiiiti if they
could be withdrawn and could thus be
safely counted on as an available asset.
This bad been satisfactorily demonstrated and the Outario Government
was more thou content to leave these
fuuds in possession of tho Dominion
Government rather than withdraw
them to receive u moderate rate of interest from other sources. Mathesou
spoke for a few minutes in criticism,
and the House then rose.
Ottawa, March II.���In the House today Domville introduced a hill respecting the Northern Commercial Tel, Co.

I isked the   Minister  of  Militia  if
this was the Great West Saddlery
Company, of Winnipeg, that supplied
65 saddles for Imperial authorities.
Dr. Borden pointed out that the ram
wddles were miulo in St. Louis and
Chicago. At present the firm bad
locked out all its employees in Winnipeg because they were denied tho
right ot Canadian citizenship, in not
permitting them to become members
ot unions for their own protection
He thought it was a most ungrateful
act for this firm to make complaint of
its treatment at the hands of the Im-
perial authorities. The committee lose
and teported progress. The House
went into committee  on   supply.

London, Murch 10. ���(4:16 a. m.)���
Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, Chancellor
of the Exchequer, when explaining to
the bankers the terms of the new loan,
gave them an intimation that tho Government considered the end of the war
ueai. "Sine the estimates were prepared," ho said, "events have taken
place that have changed the situation
and probably not all the money will be
required."
Whatever the Government may know
or intend unofficial opinion seems to
think that tbo Boot power is collapsing. The Eighth Division has buen
under orders to embark for several
weeks, but these orderB, so far as Ihe
artillery contingent is concerned, ha<re

command in the field, and Lord
Wolslcy are understood also to consider
that no more artillery is needed. Lord
Roberts bus altogether 542 guns including seige pieces. It is quite dear that
General Bnller will not try anything
large in the future, as be is to lose
Sir Charles Warren and the latter'a
10,000 men, who have been ordered to

operate a constantly iucreosing force

Loudon, March 0. ���(5:10 p. m.)���It
was learned lute this ufteruoou that
the peace rumors had been founded on
fact; that President Kruger had up
pealed to Lord Salisbury for a cessation of hostilities, offering at length bv
cable, the terms which he wns willing
to accept. These, however, were not
taken seriously, as they iucluded practically nothing more ibnu what the
Transvaal Government ottered prior to
tho issuing of the British ultimatum.
Official circles here remurked the propositions were merely a ruse for the
Boers to gain time and did not "ou-
sider that President Kruger was yesterday to consider the sweeping demands which Great Britain would
make as reimbursement for  the loss of
fe and war expenditure. It was
understood that President Kruger's
advanoes were met with a rejection , at
the hands of Lord Salisbury, who wus
believed to have said that no such attempt to retain the independence of
the Transvaal should be considered an
agreement by the British Government.

A GRAND DEMONSTRATION.
Loudon, March 9.���The editorials
in the morning newspapers admit that
yesterday's demonstrations wero quite
without, precedent and they teem with
patriotic expressions ot gratification at
the Queen's opportune and tactful contribution towurd the Unity of tho
Empire.
The Timea says : "The Qnoon has
had many royal greetings but it is
doubtful whether the spontsniety and
oxnberant enthusiasm of yesterday
have over heen equalled. There was
no pageant but there was a constant
exhibition and genuine popular feeling
which is itself the most impressive of
all pageants." Commenting on tho
Queen's visit to Ireland and the speech
of Mr. John Redmond in the Honse of
Commons, The Tim?s says: "Mr.
Redmond performed his difficult, task
with excellent judgment and tact."
The Daily News, which describes the
demonstration as an "Improvised Jubilee in some ways more impressivo than
the Diamond Jubilee," says: "Its
significance is beyond question. Nor
can it be doubted that Her Majesty's
visit to Ireland will also^bo a gioat
sneoess, providing care is taken that
it is not excited for political purposes.
Mt. Redmond's remarks in the House
were well received."
The Daily Telegraph says: "The
demonstration has never been equalled
in the annals of any other nation Not
even the Queen herself has evpr known
a demonstration of love nud loyalty so
deep, so poignant, so iuoxprissiblu in
solioitodo and tenderness, so touching,
and so thrilling. The bond betwoen
Empire and Queen are hopes of living,
hreathing, chivalrous devotion." All
the papers express oommendntiou of
Mr. Redmond's attitude.

ng with the disappointment expressed
hy the war correspondents respecting
I ho Poplar Grove battlo,; says:
"Doubtless it was not a great victory
since the enemy was not punished and
no great strategical advantage wafl
gained. It cauuot bo deuied that the
Boers have pursued a wise course in
defiance of the very bad tactinil and
strategical advice of l'tesideiit Kruger
and President Steyn. From the British point of view it is a pity that the
mlviie was not followed. In that case
Lord B0bettl would prruuhly have
captured the whole force."
Ixmdoii, March 10.���The Standard,
which is in closer touch with the policy of the 'Government than any other
ministerial organ, says: "Wo have
reason to believe thut un authoritative
statement will shortly be  made by the

to tbo Boer Republics which would involve a perpetuation  of  the political

The Canadian Pacific Company are
seeking legislation at Ottawa to enable
t1'.1111 to build an extensive system of
branch railways In Manitoba. Experience in some of the States of rtie adjoining Uniou loug ago dtmoust rated
that a rich prairie country would support railways ten miles apart, and
that in fact the limit of its development could not Le reached with less.
Thero is no richer prairie region in
the woild than Manitoba, but it is yet
far from having attained this Standard in railway accommodation. It is
believed thut the time has couio to
give practical consideration to a more
comprehensive system of branches,
hence the Company's apulicatiou to
Parliament. A Manitoba member
who is seeking popularity by denouncing the Canadian PBcifio as a monster
of greed and oppression opposes the
legislation ou general principles, but
particularly for the reason that some
of the proposed branches would parallel other lines. This same member
on other occasions has grown puiple
with indignation whenever the Company, in their own interest, have
thought it necessary to object to the
chartering of a railway that would
parallel one of their own lines.
Whether paralleling of railwajs is an
6vil, in tho estiuiotiou of a olass of
whom this member is a type, depends.
It is just aud right if the road to be
paralleled is a part of the OP. R. sys
tem, but an outrage if it iB the 0. P.
R. that seeks to do the paralleling.
Whatever its course, and under all conditions, these people belieio that the
0. P. R is a public enemy that ought
to be stoned to death.
her, bns given an order that all Irish
regiments may wear tllO Shamrock on
next St. Patiick's Day. Which menns
all the St. Patrick's Dmys that will
evei come. It is a oomplimcnt which
those brave fellows dei- >rve, if only
because of the splendid cournge and
devotion displayed by the Irish regiments In South Africa They have had
their full share so far of the fighting,
and, alas, more than u fair share of
the casualties.
The Canadian Magazine for March
is a military number, very military,
indeed, both in letter press, and illustrations. It is this instiuct of timeliness more than anything else that
has enublod the editor to make such a
gratifying success of The Canadian.

Interest in Mr. Martin's endeavors
to form a Government must not be allowed to monopolise all our attention.
A day or two ago the dispatohes spoke
iu the most flattering manner of tho
part taken hy Capt.Bell's Maxim company in the action nt Paardeberg. This
has special interest for Nelson. We
rend that the Captain "displayed great
gallantry in getting his weapons uoross
the river nud advancing to a position
on the lelt. flauk. Every step be took
was in the face of a heavy Roer lire."
A Maxini company is composed of
about ten or a dozen men, and two of
those under Captain Bell are Mr. Pat-
erson and Mr. Lee of this City. Their
follow citizens are proud to know
that they conducteJ themeslves with
a gallantry that commands special
mention, although truth to tell nothing less was expected of them; and
tbey are rejoiced to know that they
came through the hot firo of the enemy
with whole skins. May they fight as
well and escape as safely until the last
Roer lays down his arms.
Nelson is forging ahead. A feature
ot tho opening of the largo new stores
of the Hudson's Bay Company was
the illumination at night. They
wero brilliantly lighted with gas, and
the occasion was no less a celebration
of the enterprise of the Coke and Gas
Company. On the samo day the first
definite information was given of the
plans of those extensive improvements
which the Cunadian Pacific Company
have had in contemplation, and whlol
insure to Nelson the substantial ad
vantages of being made tho centre nf
the Company's operations in Southern
British Columbia. It will not be
many years before Nelson will be the
secoud city of the Province,
There were two announcements In
yesterday's news which should Stagger
the country���one, that the Canadian
Pacific Company had reduced tho passenger tariff in Manitoba to three cents
n mile, and the other that tbey had
increased the wurbs of section men ten
cents a day. This is infamous; altogether Intolerable, If the Government
ami Parliament of Canada do not Instantly sandbag this Company of tyrants and robbers, the people will rise
in their might aud cast them into the
sea.    Where,    in   Heaven's   name,   is
John Houston?
The Midway Advance says: "A
Bill to limit the time of the labor of
underground miners to eight houis,
brought before the British House of
Commons by a private member, has
been thrown out by tbu rejection of 11
motion favoring this being read 11 second time, Bad our Provincial Legislature lust year simillarly declined to

A year iik'o some Irish soldiers were

The   Debilitated   Man.
In the treatment of those nervous disorders of men, young and old, which result
from the abuse of some law of nature, early
indiscretions, later excesses, dissipations,
etc., there is much to be considered. Ihe
subject is deeper than most physicians
think it.    One thing is certain.
Drugs Only Stimulate.
They do not tone nor strengthen. It is just
like taking a glass of whiskey to temporarily relieve the mental torture of some financial or family trouble. I soon saw drugs
were not giving my patients satisfaction
and went to work experimenting, just as a
bnsiness man does if he wishes to change
some condition of his affairs which are not
proving profitable.
The first thing I  discovered was that
the weakness was  not local.    For proper
results a remedy had to be found which
would build up the whole organism.    I knew then that I should

And to meet this demand I invented a portable chain battery, which developed into my present famous Dr. Sanden Eleetric Belt, with
attachment for men.    This appliance is a model home self-treatment.
It generates the proper amount of Electricity in the proper way.
It iB made especially for weak men. You wear it all night for (10 to 00 days, and take ordinary care of your general health During
this time it is building up every organ of the body. Over 0,000 were cured during 1808. Currents are instantly felt, though controlled b) a

Kriciinmciirtpil For  a British Liunten-
niicy by Untncre,
Tho fiillnwiiiK extract from a letter
reoeiverl by one of Tho Miner staff
Irii'ii a frit nil in tho Unitetl States,
will Rive n very Kood jjea of tbo materia! svinrjntby tluit exists among
Americans, ot the intelligent class,
for England in her present wai : Von
Will urrlml'ly like to know that Irvine Hey, of Norfolk, who went nbvnarl
last Hii.iiiini hns been leoornnienrlid for
a oommlsslon for bravery in action
while with Brabant's Horse, one
ol' Ih" British volunteer organizations
now lighting iii Capo Colony.
Hey, though only 21   years  old,  is a
veteran of the Bpanlsb-Ainerioan war.
The latter ]mrt of last summer lie left
here lor Europe, with a consignment
of thoroughbred horses, owned b) his
father. When the stock was disposed
of Colonel Avhton and young Hey
made a tniir nf Kurojio and Northern
Africa. From Algiers Hey went to
East Loudon, Cape Colony, where he
enlisted iii General Hiahant's Horse,
organized, equipped and maintained
by a South African imilli millionaire
to avenge the loss of bis two sons killed iu battle by the Bncrs.
Because of his superior horsemanship, marksmanship nnd experience
Hey was made a sergeant, with a salary of |00 a month. In the battle nf
December 10 before Htormberg, ho led
his tioo]i in a bayonet charge up a
kopje, all the olticer: having been
wounded, and escaped without a
snatch. A bullet passed through his
cup, but he was not aware of   it   until
afic] tic engagement,
General Brabant was on tho seem
when Sergeant Hey distinguished himself and recommended him to (leneral
Qatacre for promotion to a lieutenancy
for his bravery, and by this time be
has probably received his commission.    ���   ���   *
