Qoebeo, April Id.���Le Soliel in its
issue of Saturday night reproduces an
interview witb the Hon. Mr. Tarte,
published in the Journal de Pniis, in
wbioh the Canadian Minister of Public Works is quoted as saying that it
is quite possible tnnt ninety-nine per
cent of the Frenoh Canadians disapprove of the presont South African;
war, and think that Canada could,
have pot tbe monoy spent in sending,
contingents to tbat oouutry' to hotter I
practical use. Bnt ns good citizens,)
we bave to sub-nit to the opinion of
tbe majority, otherwise no pi.ngrese
would be mnde," said Mr. T.Vte.
"Frenoh Canadians,"he added, "wcte
loyal becanse they were obligor! to be
for reasons both economical and
; social."
The interviewer remarked tbat some
> ot the   French   Canadian   papers Im
unlisted themselves before tbe British
in a manner  painful   to observe.    To
this  Mr. Tarte   replied that   this was
not the  case  with   "La Patrie" pub-
1 lisbad  by his two sons, but under hisj
1 supervision, declaring tbat   that paper
���would continue to defend the tricolor,
'"that  unique  and   hnly  relio  which
1 still bind* .onr hearts to France.''

upon the British Colonial authorities
to prevent snch Japanese from crossing
the line, beyond that of mere neigh
borly interest. Although the recent
reports from San Franoisco of the arrival of considerable numbers of Jap
anese laborers, be taken in connection
witb the stendy increase of the Japan
ese population of the Hawaiian Government, it is said that even suppos
ing tbe presenoe of the Japanese with
in the United States limits should be
regarded ns undesirable is one entirely
beyond exeontive reach at preseut, being one for tbe consideration of Congress. Some of the officials have been,
and many still are of the opinion that
the steady growth of the industries in
Jnpnn, attendant upon the phenomenal
development of tbnt nation in other
lines, and tbe need for raw material,
out of wblob to make soldiers and
sailors for the Japanese nrmy and
navy, would oreate a snflicieiit home
demand to remove any menace to tbe
United States from Japanese immigration. Figures of tbe Immigration
Bureau on tbe Pacific Coast nro, how-
over, being olosely watched, for on
tbeir showing may depend important
recommendations on tbis subject.

Washington,   D. O., April   16.-Up
to this point nothing has boen done by
tbe  Washington   authorities,   looking
toward   the   restiietiou of   the immigration of   Japanese into tbis country,
U indicated  by   despatches from Victoria, B. <-'.. beyond the application nf
the contract lnbor laws.    Knforoemeut
of these laws  is   intrusted to the  officials of tho Treasury Department, aud
so far an is known, they   have not discovered  any   movement   towards   the
bringing   into  tbe   United  States  of
Japanese   coolies,   under   labor   oon-
traots.    Thoy   aro   not, however,   authorized to Interfere with  the incoming of  nny  Japanese   who oan satisfy
the requirements of   tho   immigration
laws.   It is believed that, unlike other
Orientals, tho Japanese of tho laboring
class fall to  make a sulllcient showing
, on these points to pass muster and   so-
cure   admission   at   tho Golden Gate.
If, however, tlio  tide Of Japanese immigration, now   setting   towards   the
British      north Western      possessions,
should include  Jnpnuese coolies under
oontrnct to lnbor in the United States,

Nelson enjoyed a buildiug boom last
summer whiob pnt a great deal of
money in circulation and supplied the
city with several handsome brick
blocks and scores of private residences.
This season another boom seems imminent. A walk throngh the residential
districts of tbe city sbowa a surprisingly large nnmber of residences in
courso ot construction. On iilm.ist
ev.ory street in tbe city the souud of
tlm iu(wu,upir tells of new homes fen-
Nelson's <:jti/(jiiH. And tbe architects
state that veiy many more are contemplated. The satisfactory feature
of it is that before a honse is finished
it can be rented a dozen times over.,

handsome three story blook that will
be erected by Messrs. Kirkpatriok,
Wilson and Clements on tbe oorner of
Ward and Baker streets is already under way. Ernest Mansfield returns to
Nelson next month and;; he will commence the ereotion of a blook on.the
lots recently purchased from T. Q.
Procter. As Mr. Manslleld never does
things by halves it may be taken for
granted tbat this block will be a tie
airily handsome oue. As Mansfield has
also purchased the West Kootenay
Briok and Lime Company it is probable tbat tbe beantiful marble from the
company's quarry will be used principally in tbe building of the blook.
The location of Traves' bntober shop
and Tburman's tobacoo store will like
ly boast of a handsome briok and stone
blook this summer. Plana aie now
being prepared. There is al least one
other brick blook being contemplated,
but nothing is being said about it at
present. Oity Engineer MoCnlloob Intends to erect a blook on tbe vacant
lot adjoining the old Hudson's liny
���tote. Tbat makes at least five brick
blocks whioh will go np this summer
to maintain Nelson's position as the
metropolis of the Interior. The 0, P.

bouses, etf., will further add to the
building aotivity. The work on the
Balfour extension, fiom whioh Nelson
merchants aie reaping a rich lewnrd,
aud iho r'opening nf tha mines will
also make business brisk. Last spring
was ��� may one for Nelsou, but this

Washington, April 16.���During nl-
uiost the entire session today, the Senate had under consideration the Alns-
kau Civil Codo Bill. The amendment,
providing for the mining of gold
along the bench in tho distriot, wns
perfected, the discussion lasting nearly (our hours. Wheu the Senate then
resumed the consideration of the Alaskan Civil Code Bill, the pending qnestion was nn ameudnient, olfered by
Mr. Stewart, ns to the regulations for
tho mining of gold below low water
mark, along the const of Alaska. After
somo diBnussion Mr. Stewart withdrew
his proposed amendment. The provision iu relation to mining at Cape

Mr. Berry snid he had information

Tupper Opposed to the Preferential   Policy   of
Laurier.
In It Canada Gives Everything
Away Without Any

Will Put Canadian Industries
at Mercy of Those of
Other Countries
(SPECIALS TO THE MIUER.)
Montreal, Que., April 19.��� Sir
Charles Tupper, speaking to a deputation from the Junior Conservative and
Sir John A. Macdonald clubs, again
discussed tbe Imperial questions. He
took exception to the polioy of tbe preferential trade with the Mother Conntry, of which thu effect is, be said, to
prostrate Canadian industries and to
pnt tbem at tho mercy of those of another country. It was not to tbe
point to say that this other country
was Ihe parent state. He also said
that while he was for unity of Empire nnd for the extension of trade
within tbe Empire, he wonld nut commit tbis oountry to any but a cloarcut
and well defined policy. Tbe Hritish
l.mpiio League had decided tbat Imperial interests could best be conserved, and tbat trade within tbe Kuipnn
oonld best be fostered by cultivation of

Writing to a friend iu Nelson, Mr.J
Hugo Boss,mining broker, of Toronto,
says: "It is extremely bard to do
anything with propositions here at
present, ne our ranrket hns hnd such a
setbaok onacconntof tho labor troubles
thnt it is still suspicious." We hope
this suspicioj will soon be dispelled.
The lnl.or troubles have been happily
settled, nud no further disturbance is
npprcheuded from tbat source. It iB
not likely tbat perfect confidence will
be established until the electors effect-
iially dispose of Mr. Mnrtin nnd his
freak Government. He is more of a
menace to mining development in tbis
Province tbat half a dozon Eight Hour
laws, bnt it is pretty safe to say the
electors will take euro of him on tbe
nth of June.

Some   Canadian   Snbhitarinns   have
asked the Government   nt   Olta'va   to
, give instrnctious to have   the   Domin-
I ion  exhibits  nt   the Paris Exposition
closed to the public on Sundays.    It iB
! said tbat the Government have ngreed
I to refer the  matter   to   the Canadian
j Commisionotfl   at   Paris.     They   may
i spare   themselves    the    trouble.    The
' Parisian authorities bave absolute con-
' trol  over   all   exhibits, uud they hnve
I aleady   decided   that   the   Exposition
shall   not   be dosed ou Sundays.    The
Canadian   Government   bave   no more
right  to iuterfeie  with   the  management of the Exposition than tbey have
with the laws of France.

Used in the Kootenay.
The Biblical dojtriue thnt it is im
possible to serve two masters is dis
proved by The Vancouver World. It
not only can but in serving two,of tbe
most extremely opposite natures aud
who profess the most extremely anlag-
onistio priuciples. Ir is serving; Sir
Wilfrid I.mirier and Mr. Joseph Martin. A few months ago it was openly
daoouttolng tho one aa a dangerous man,
whom the people of this Provinoe
shoo Id not tolerate on any account,
and it was known to havo but a very
indifferent regard for tho other. Today it is praising both and supporting
both. In iiB sympathies Tbe World
has a marvelous range, and It has an
amazing oapacity for turning sharp
corners.
A few (lavs ago it was disoussing tbe
question ot Chinese immigration. It
expressed the fullest satisfaction with
Sir Wilfrid Iaiorier's promise to deal
with it this session. It bad no doubt
the Federal Premier would rise to tbe
occasion. Then it went on to show
thnt nny legislation on the subject
would necessarily be influenced by Im-
pi'i'in'i considerations. "The Imperial
authorities, " It said, "will not allow
auy Colony to enact legislation whiob
will in tbe slightest degree imperil
the f-.iendly relationship which at
present exists between tbe Empires of
Great Britain aud China. As we all
kuow, the interests which Great Brit-
am has nt atnke in China are of enormous importance, and in view of the
presence there of her boldest competitors���Hussia and Germany- it oan
easily be seen tbat any step taken by
the Dominion authorities which would
tend iu the slightest degree to enibsr-
rnmi Great Britain in those extremely
inhale negotiations whioh are oon-
tumidly in progress at Pokin would be
mist unfortunate. We are perfeotly
n iitidtnt that this mattet cnn be left
Ti .ih isfety in tbe hands of Sir Wilfrid
' lnurier and his ablesjolleagues. "
' in the other side of the paper ou
which these sober amlaonslble remarks
are printed appears Mr. Mnrtln's plat-
form, of which plank number five
reads ns follows: "The re-anactment
of the disallowed Labor Regulation
Ait, 18B8, nnd also all the statutes tf
1899 containing anti-Mongolian
clauses, if disallowed ns proposed by
the Dominion Government" The
World is supporting n Provincial Premier wbo, if given a majority in tho
Legislature, will do the very thing it
commends the Federal Piomier (or uot
doing. It supports Mr. Martin and
hi-i anti-Mongolian polioy, and it anp-
portl Sir Wilfrid Laurier for deprecating tbnt policy. Publio sentiment
111 British 1 ''in in hia in so dlsnnsod that
we have suffered ourselves to drift
into n stale of shocking callousness,but
It will Im strange if this does uot prove
loo strong fnr the public stomach.
The WorW kuowH that Mr. Mnrtin Intends to re-enaot legislation thut the
Federal and Imperial Governments
linve regarded an highly improper. It
itself admits that it would be "most
tinferlniinte." and onlculnted If en-
foroed " to Imperil the friendly relationship which at present exists" aud
which is of "enormous importance" to
lJiiili.li interests in China.    Ye'   it  is
"Editor Nelson Miner: Could you
or any of the Government cfHcialB inform a stranger iu the district if there
is any game law iu force in British
Colombia. I have either heaid or
droaint thnt tbere wns such a law, but
what I really wiBb to know, wus (here
or Is there nnythiug of the sort. Kind
ly answer through youi valuable columns and oblige a Sportsinnii(Visiting
Britisher.)" We really do uot know.
Thero is a gauio law on the statute
book, aud a vory good it is, hut we
cannot say it is enforced, There is
Borne doubt, indeed, whether it is yet
positively understood that the Kootenays are to be considered M Within the
pale of oiviliflntion
This ia the opinion of The Star,
Montrenl: "Should Mr. Mnrtin succeed at the polls, which seems very
Improbable, British Columbia will
hnve the most uniqne Government in
tbe annals of constitutional history.
It will be n Governmont of untried
amateurs led by a man whose record is
that of a trouble breeder and mischief
maker. This bodes ill lor tbe Pacific
Province. Tbe chances aro, however,
that the lirepresBible Joseph is more
successful as n breaker thun a maker cf
Governments, and thnt his lease of
power will be as short nt it hns beeu
exciting."

Because a Watch has
run for years is no indication that it does not
need cleaning. Many a
watch is ruined by being let run too long without it. The oil becomes
dry and invariably the
little machine becomes
cut and worn. Wehave
every facility for leplac-
ing any part, or making
a watch throughout if
necessary. Kirst-class

In the case of the Merchant's Bank
of Halifax vs. Houston nud Wnrd, tha
lion. Mr. Jnstloe Irving, of the feu-
iirome Court of British Columbia, in
banding down his opinion reversing s
lodgment of the lower eoait in fnvor
if Houston nnd Ward, and giving a
i-irriiut for tha bank, said in part:
"Tbe learned judge dismissed the
plaintiff's notion witb oosts, although
he defendant Wurd had admitte.1 that
tho hank was entitled to a direction
ny the court that they bad priority
over his nsignnient by virtue of thoir
liill of sale of the mill machinery, eto.
On this point the appeal must be allowed, and tho direction asked for by
tbe plaintiffs mnst he made, and on
the main point in my opinion this
transnotion is one wbioh the bnnk waB
uitboriaed by the act to enter Into.
t'he net distinctly nntbo-ises the bnnk
io ndvanco to a purchnser of a whole-
lale trnnsactiou tho money necessary to
carry out such a oontrnct. Lawford
WUS engaged in a wholesale transac-
iou, and the fact tiiat he was Gray's
nookeeper at tht time, and that Grav'n
'iiil 1 wonld benefit to the extent of
lotting the logs into lumber does not
iffect the validity of the transnotion.
N'either does the fact that in order to
irnteot himself he obtainod notes from
3ray in respeot of tbe sums he die-
i.iM-ii. The logs having gone to
I'rav's mill the right to the logs pass
*d to Gray's mortgagee, Honston.
th,nsinn can have no higher right tbnn
his nssiguer Gray. Tbe ncoounts produced show the payments made for the
legs by Lawford with the money advanced by the bnnk. The appeal
-It.mlil he allowed aud an aooonnt will
hnve lo he taken of the logs still existing, nnd the lumber manufactured
from the logs bronght to the will, and
A'hnt has beoome of it; nn injunction
���s pinyed in the claim, aud the plain
tiffs will have the costs of this appeal

A SPLENDID CONCERT.
Loni��o   Brnhnny  and   Hor  Associates
Please n Pull  House.
It wns the   unfortunate luck of  Tbe
Miner representative at  the oonoert at
the Opera HimBj Inst  night to he seated directly in front of n larly who waa
very   decided   aa   to  what shade   her
spring dress should  be and n few seats
away   from   a   baby which   was   not
only content- with   mantiontinir several
programs but felt itself   in duty bound
to endeavor to give utterance to various
notes   whicb   it   hnd ahsoilied   during
tho progress of tho programme.    However, the dress question   was settled at
last   and   tbe   hnhy   was   lulled   into
sleepy    forgetfnlness    by   the    sweet
tunes nf   Miss Hrehany's voice   by the
time Ihe latter half of   the progiamme
was leached, and it was not too late to
gather   a   few ideas nf   the   entertain
incut.     Tb.ise   ideas   wero   distinctly
pleasant,    The   Opera   House,   whioh
wns   crowded, never   had a better  attraction   than    tho   Louise    Brehany
Company.    Each   member  was n treat
in   itself.    Miss Brehany horse f    ns a
magnificent  voice, well trained, clear,
rich nnd nt times of   wide range, and
each of   her   numbers  were   en.'ored.
Forrest D. Cnrr, the basso, met with a
success equal to   Miss Brebany's.    His
vicli, full   voice was heard to splendid
nffct   in   liis   different  numbers,   and
especially in Martha did lie meet witb
great favor.   Mr. Mintz, the tenor, bas
a   very   Fweot   voico   of    considerable
power ai d Mjhs Munroa, the contralto,
sings    well   but   baB   a   small   voice
which requires all her efforts to fill the
tlpeia     House.     Tha   violinist,   Miss
Srhinoll, only appeared once   nnd   the
"niiience   wished   it  bad seen more of
her.    She   is   certninly an artist and a
m irvellnns p'nyer   for one of   hor age.
Mr. rinnvlot, the pianist,performs in a
wonderful manner.    He held Mb audience with his mngnifioeut playing and
was loudly encored.   The latter half of
tho nrogmmme consisted of the B?coud
act  of  Martha, and   it   was certainly
splendid.    All   the   aitistn  saug their
hest  nnd   greatly   pleased the packed
house.    The management of the Opera
House wonld do well   to engage   more
attractions as capable as Miss Brehany
nnd her associates.

The boy developes into the man, strong or weak, according to

thirty years I have used Electricity in the treatment of all results of indiscretions and excesses. I apply it by means of my
invention, ihe Dr. Sanden Electric Belt, now used throughout
