PEACE A��D WAR REST
WITH Til PEOPLE
Governments No Longer Can
Have Their Way.
SO SAYS PAUL CAMBON
French Ambassador to Great Britain
Pleased at the Frio (Haass of
the Two Countries*
London, March 7. ���M. Paul Oatnbou,
French Ambassador to Great Britain,
was the prinoipal guest this evening at
tint banquet of the Loudon Ohamber of
Commerce. Iu reply to a toast the
Freuoh Ambasador said that peace and
war no lunger rest with Governments,
but with the people. He noted with
gieat pleasure the determination of
tbe promoters of commerce in Great
Britain and France to augment the
cordiality of relation between the two
nations and foster that "real spirit of
conciliation by whioh all differences
oan be readily settled." The utterances of M. Cambon are particularly
notable, aa reflecting tbe improvement
in the relations between Loudon and
Paris.

Charleston, West Virginia, March 7.
��� Hut sight, was oue of discomfort
aud actual suffering. The slow falling
of the water, addetl lo Ihn low lumpor-
atitrti, lmu made the situation a gloomy
one. Many business men were compelled to use threats to those necking
provisions and fuel. The Governor
was forced to use a boat to go from the
executive mansion to his offloe iu the
state houso. Much drunkenness und
disorder has prevailed. The loss to
timbermeu up Elk river will be |ieavy,
as that river traverses the heaviest logging districts in West Virginia. Immense rufls are thrown in loose and go
into the Kanawha, sometimes doing
heavy damage to coal docks, barges and
tipples. Tho Winnifred docks are gone
with several barges, and au expensive
tipple between the east bauk aud Belmont was swept away.
TO  NATIVE   SOIL
A SETTLEMENT ASSURED.
Parii, March 7���The following semiofficial   note was issued that evening:
"A satisfactory settlement between
Franoe and Great Britain of the questions arising out of tha Fashoda incident may be expected within a fortnight. The delimination of tbe respective territories baa so far advanced
that the starting points aud general
directions of tbe frontier have already
been arranged and Great Britain ban
admitted that Franco was unified to a
commercial outlet on the Nile."
SLOWLY BUT SURELY.
Kipling's Progress Hai Been Very
Satisfactory.
New York, Maroh 7.���Mr.Donbleday
tonight reported both Rudyard Kipling and his little daughter Elsie to be
slowly but surely convalescing. Mr.
Kipling bas not yet bean informed of
the death of his child and he will not
be told abont it until he is praotioally
well. 8h�� waa bis favorite and the
physoians dread the possibility of a
relapse should he learn of her death
in any manner. Some of tho more
important cablegrams and messages are
daily read to Mr. Kipling and occasionally he is allowed to read them himself. Every suoh message is carefully
censored to prevent the father reading
even an illusion to his loss. Great
quantities of flowers continue to be
sent to the Grenoble Hotel by friends
of the Kiplings. At 10 o'olook to
night Mr. Donbleday said that Mr.
Kipling had done splendidly during
the day and had made more progress
toward recovery than on any previous
d��y.
A QUIET FUNERAL.
New York, Maroh 7.���Mrs. Kipling,
accompanied by her sister, Mrs. Dr
Dunham, and Dr. Gonial d of Battle
boro, Vermont, tbis morning, left the
hotel where the author lies. Shortly
after 2 o'olook they returned with
flowers in their hands. It was presumed that they had been to the funeral of Rudyard Kipling's daughter
Josephine.
THE REASON THEREOF.
Berlin, March 7.���Emperor William
has reoeived through Herr Von Holle-
ben, the German Ambassador at Washington, a message from Mrs. Rudyard
Kipling, expressing ber thanks for
the despatches sent to her by His Majesty yesterday, iu which he expressed
his solicitude for Mr. Kipling. His
Majesty's message is muoh commented
on here. It is believed it was not sent
from the motives of wyjipatby and
oourtesy, but to create a pleasant political impression.
WET  AND   COLD.
Climatio Conditions And Floods Cause
Great Dieoomforts.
Norfolk, Va., March 7.���From Hat-
teres to Norfolk a terrible storm is
raging, exceeding in intensity that of
February 18. The -wind is blowing at
the rate of 40 miles an hour, accompanied by snow and cold. A big vet-
sel,whose name cannot be ascertained,

LORD  HEflSOHELL'S  REMAINS ON
BOARD THE TALBOT.
Full Naval  Honors Aooorded  the
of the Distinguished
Statesman*
Body
New York, Maroh 7.���The body tf
Lord Herschell reached Jersey Oity
from Washington at 7 -.40 this morning,
and was taken on board the British
cruiser Talbot, which will oonvey it to
England. Tbt special train over the
Pennsylvania railway bearing the remains was met at the station by the
British consul-general, Percy Sanderson ; Commodore Philip, commandant
of the New York Navy Yard ; Lieu
tenant-Corn mandor Kelly, United
States Navy, and detachments of
Amerioan and British marines. The
marines escorted the casket* from tbo
train to the Navy Yard tug Narkeeta,
ou which it win transferred to tho
Talbot. Noon had been set as the
time for the sailing of the Talbot, but
it was expected sbe would be delayod
ou account of the storm.
As the casket was lifted out of thn
oar at tbe railroad station, the Amerioan marines presented arms and tbe
drummers rolled the "Four Ruffles,"
tbe highest funeral salute known, excepting that giveu to Royalty. Six
British tars stepped forward and placed
over the casket the flag of England.
Before the march to the tug was mado,
a number of gentlemen who had ac-
oomnanied the body, stepped np and
laid on tbe coffin wreaths of flowers.
Those who came from Washington
With the remains wero C. 0. Cart-
wright, Seoretary of the Joint High
Commission; J. O. Williamson, Private Seoretary to Lord Herschell, anil
bis body servant, T. Martin. Aftar tho
flag of England and tbe flowers hail
been deposited on the coffin, it was
plaoed on a truck and wheeled to Jthe
freight elevators and lowered to the
floor below, who re another squad of
British sailors awaited it. Again six
of them stepped forward aud lifted the
coffin to their shoulders. The buglers
of the Navy Yard Marines sounded the
"call," the marines presented arms,
the officers saluted, tho civilians raised
their hats and the sailors slowly bore
the body to the navy tug boat Nnr-
kota. It was securely fastened to the
forward deck and wben both Amerioan
and Britis'i marines were ou board,
the tug returned to Ellis Island,
where lay the cruiser Talbot. The
snow was falling fast by tbis time and
before the tug proceeded a cable length
from the pier a white pall had settle 1
ou the cntket covering it completely.
FROM THE QUEEN.
Washington, Maroh 6 ���The following message from Quaen Victoria to
the President has been roceived at the
executive mansion:
Windsor, March fi.
Tho President of tbe United States ���
I desire to thank you siucerely, aud
the American nation, for the honor

NO SHARE OF CHINA
Will Stand Aloof When Partition Comes.
WU TINQ FANG TALKS
Ohineie Minister at Washington is Pleased
at the Aotion of the United
States-
Washington, March 7.���Tbe Chinese
Minister,Mr. Wu Ting Fang, expresses
himself us highly gratified at the definite determination of the Uuited
States to keep hands off China and to
resist the intimations of other powers
that the time is ripe for this country
to take for itself a part of the ooast
line of China as mado known by au
authorized statement giveu [[yesterday.
"I am sure the Chinese Government
and people will not fail to observe this
strong evidence of good will" said
Mr. Wu Ting Fang, today. "It is not
ouly another bond between tbo two
countries, but it has u special significance just now. While tho old world
powers seem moved by rapacity, the
United States takes that lofty positiou
of equity, justice an 1 humanity,
whioh has characterized her dealings
with other international questions of
late, and iustead of joining in encroachments iu China, assumes an attitude of strict neutrality."
The Minister bad a long conference
yesterday with Secretary Hay as to the
situatiou in China. While le will not
discuss the conference, he udoubtedly
learuod in nu official way what was
made known to tbe public later in the
day and communicated the information
to Pekin. It, is understood that the
position of the United States in refusing any territory will bave an important influence ou affairs in China,
strengthening tbe hands of tboso iu
authority. Sje iking ^of Italy's action
iu seeking ��J "Open door" on the
Chinese ooast by the acquisition of San
Mun Bay, Mr. Wu says he was much
surprised at this move as Italy has
practically no trade with China. What
China will do as to accepting or rejecting the Italian claims. Mr. Wu has
not yet beeu advised Officially.
LOOKS   SUSPICIOUS.
The Explosion at Toulon Waa Probably
the Result of a Crime.
Paris, Maroh 7.��� The deaths resulting from the Toulon explosion of Sunday morning number 54, aud 180 persons were injured. The reports tbat
the oatastrophe was the result of a
crime are renewed. It is assorted tbat
a fuse five feet long ���han been found iu
the ruins of tha magazine. M. Lock-
roy, Minister of Marine, in the course
of"an interview had with him, said
that none of the theories advanced was
admissahle. "Imprudence ou the part
of the personnel," he added, "was impossible, as tho explosions occurred
several hours after the gates bad beeu
closed. The heatiug theory, too, is unsound, as the temperature of the building waB always low aud the air dry. "

Brussels, March 7.���Queen Maris

broncho pneumonia, passed a good
night and her condition this morning
shows a marked improvement.
AFTER ALBI.
New York, March 7���Gils Rublin, of
Akron, Ohio, met and dofeatod Joe
Goddard|of Australia,in the fifth round
of what was to bave been a 20 round
bout before the Lenox Athletic Club
The life savers are on the I tonight. Both men stripped in excel-
lent condition, but Ruhlin hud the call
in tbe betting. This was certainly
justified from bis appearance and from
the outset he hold his opponent cheaply.
He evidently saw that Joe could uot
offset his rushes nnd from the very beginning forced the lighting. The Australian went down frequently wilh
good cause, but toward the close of the
contest he dropped without cause and
their homes orjgo to the upper stories. I was deservedly disqualified. Ruhliu

Cincinnati, March 7���Notwithstanding the low temperature nnd tbo bigb
winds of last night, the Ohio river
continued steadily rising at the rate of
3-10 of a foot per hour. Newport is
tbe earliest sufferer, from high water,
and already a considerable portion of
her territory is flooded, aud families

That the Spokane Police thought
| that Albi, tbe Italian murderer,headed
this way to elude them is evident from
i the following from the Cascade Rec-
I ord :   For a   couple  of days this week
Cascade has had a visitor in the person
! of O. E. Cole, Deputy Sheriff from
I Spokane,   who    came   to   search  for
William Albi, who murdered James
j Lacey in a Spokane   gambling  den on
February 18. It was thought that Al-
I bi, who has a couple of brothers on the
I railway   work  in this  vicinity,   bad
made for British Columbia, aud was
Idisguised as a woman. Constable liar-
I raugh wa�� notified by telephone, and
! kept a sharp outlook for the fugitive,
j who it was believed would seek cover
I in some of the Italian railway camps
\ ou the new line. It is uow thought,
i however, by Mr. Cole, thut Albi is still
| in the vicinity of Spokaue. Mr. Cole
I followed one man to Cascado, feeling
: certain that he had the murderer, but
j it proved to be a cousin   of Albi, who
bore a great resemblance.

Treacherous Warfare of Philippine Insurgents.
DRIVING   OUT   REBELS
Enemy Endeavored to Capture a Position
Held by the| Amerioans But
Were Repulsed*
Manila, March 7.-8:45 p. m.���This
afternoon Gen. Hole's brigade oon-
tinued the work of driving out tho
rebels from the country between the
reservoir and the water works, a distance of about three milos. Tho country is now clear on the left of the river
but the enemy is still in front of General Wheaton's line. Near San Pedro
Macati they huve been attempting to
make the positions of the sixth artillery ou tbe hills untenable,tneir sharpshooters keeping up a coustaut fire all
day. Private Lnvojoy, Co. 0, Washington volunteers,was killed by astray
bullet Major Bell, 7th United
Slates Cavalry, Private E. Young, Oo.
M., 120th Infantry, Privato Outran,
Oo. H, 30th Infantry and Private
Parks, Co. I, 1st Wyoming volunteers,
wore wounded today. This morniug
the enemy in front of General Over-
sbiue's division displayed a flag of
truce but retired when Lieutenant
Kohler with two men advanced to
meet it. This afternoon they again
showed a white flag and again two
officers and an inspector advanced.
Whon the Americans were within 200
yards of tho rebels, the latter dragged
rifles from behind their backs and
opened fire upon them,but fortunately,
without effect. Hawthomo's battery
fired two shells, killing several of the
enemy. In accordance Jwitb instructions to the land and naval forces, a
general order was issued today instructing tbe troops to give particular attention to tbe duty of furnishing
full protection to the lives and property of all German, Austrian, Dutoh,
Italian and Portuguese residents, and
with the co-operation of the resident
German consul, to give aid and assistance wherever necessary. At 3 o'clock
this afternoon tbe temperature was 8!)
degrees Fahrenheit and the heat is intense, espeoially on the lines where 2b
men were temporarily prostrated during the day.
CLEARING THE WAY.
Manila, March 7.���12:10 p. ni.��� A
detachment of General Hale's aud
General Wheaton's brigades were engaged for two hours this morning
clearing the country in frout of their
lines on both sides of the river, the
enemy concentrating with the apparent purpose of cutting off th< garrison
at the waterworks The rebels bolted
at the first sign of the advance, but
they sep rated into small bodies, when
ever the cover afforded opportunity,
and kept up a running fire. By a
series of rapid advoneeB, followed by
flunk movements, the enemy was completely routed as far out as Guadaloupe
ou tbe right and almost to Mariquini
on the left. The causualties reported,
Capt. O'Brien, Company F, 1st Wyoming Volunteers, and two men
slightly wounded. The rebel loss was
heavy. No rebels were visible at
noon.
A TRANSPORTATION   PROBLEM.
Washington, March 7.���The purpose
of the Administration to send large
reinforcements to General Otis at
Manila presents a sorious problem of
transportation to the officers of the
quartermaster's department. About
27,500 troops are under orders to prepare for transportation to Manila by
way of Sau Francisco aud the Paciffc
ocean. The only troop ships available
for the service are the Arizona, Bonn-
dia, Newport, Morgan City and Zeal-
atidia. The last named is the only one
at San Francisco, all the others being
in tbe Orient.
it was warmer yesterday than on
any previous day this year. A little
more such weather aud we will think
that spring has set in iu earnest. But
old timers yesterday predicted another
cold snap before winter finally shuffles
, away.
COMMISSION'S WORK.
Washington, March 7.���Renewed in
terest   iu tho situation   in tbo Philip-
' piues is awakened by the establishment at Manila of the civilian members   of   tbe   Commission which  baB
i been designated bv the President to
represent bim in the archipelago. Tbe
speculation regarding tbe duties of this
Commission, and the authority it will
have  in ilm colonial government, are
! set at rest by the publication of the
order issued by the President to tbe
Socretary of State. It will be noted
that the military goverumeut of the islands under General Otis will be continued without interference until
tbe powers of the Commissiou, while
important,   are largely advisory.    The
, order says;   In order to facilitate the
i'iohi illumine, speoiflo and effective extension ol authority throughout these
islands, ami lo secure with tho least
possible delay the belielils of a wise
mid generous protection of life and
property  to  the   Inhabitants, I have
named Jacob G, M-liiiriiian, Rear Admiral Dewey, Major General Elwoll
S. Utis, Charles llcnby ami Dean 0.
Worcester to constitute a Commission
to aid iii the   nocniniilishiiiont of these
results.   In  thu performance of ibis
duty, the Commissioners are enjoined
to be, at Ibe earliest possible date, in
tho olty of Manila, anil lo announce by
a public proclamation their presence
iintl the million enlruslud to Ibcm,
carefully selling forth that, while the
military government already proclaimed is lo be maintained and continued
so long as necessity may require,
effort! will be made to alleviate
the burdens of taxation, to establish
industrial and commercial prosperity,
nnd to provide for the safety of poisons
and property by suoh means as may be
found conducive to these ends. Tho
Commissioners will endeavor, without
interference with the military authorities of Iho United States, now in control of the Philippines, to ascertain
what Improvements in public order
may be practicable, and for this purpose thoy will study attentively the
existing social nnd political state of
the various populations, particularly
as regards the form of local governments, the administration of justice,
the collection of customs and othor
taxes, the means of transportation,and
the public improvement, Tbey will report through the Stat * Department the
results of tht-ir observations and reflections, and will recommend Suoh executive action as may from time to time
seem to them wise and useful. The
temporary goverumeut of the islands
is intrusted, however, to the military
authorities, uni will so continue until
Congress shall determine otherwise.
The (It-sire oi' the President is. that ia
all their relations with the inhibit urn s
of the islands, the Commissiouers are
to oxereise duo respect for all the
ideas, customs and institutions ot Ibe
tribes and rueoa which compose the
population, emphasizing upon all occasions the just aud beneficient intents
of the Government of the United
States.

TO KEEP TIE ISLAND
Delegation   Interviews the
Ministers at Ottawa.
RE DEAD MAN'S ISLAND
It Was Pointed Out That at One  Time
tbe Oity Was Not Ovor AniiouB
to Keep tint Island*
Ottawa, March 7.���Vanoouvor delegates, who arrived iu Ottawa last
evening for tho purposo of protesting
against sanctioning of n leant* of Dead
Man's Island for the erection of a saw
mill, were hoard this forenoon in the
Premier's offloe, There were proseut
Laurier Ourtwright, Sifton, Tarte and
Borden. Each of the five delegates,
Messri. Seuklor, Mctjueen, MoLagau,
Buscomh and Cowan, in turn,addressed
tho Ministers, pointing out that the
louse woultl mean tho destruction of
property for park purposes aud injury
of Stanley Park adjoiniug. It was
further olaimed that the island had
beeu handed over to the city in 1887
by tho Government, unless needed for
military purposes. Iu course of the
discussion it was brought out that the
Oity of Vaneoi.vet voted n bonus of
1100,000 in 1890 to a conoorn which
proposed erecting a marine rnilwny
thereon. Another point, to which attention wns drawn, wns thnt tbe island had beon used ut oue time as a
site of an isolutiou hospital and cemetery for smull pox victims. This was
taken as evidence that the sanctity of
tho property for Park purposes was
not at that '-'tie reeongized by tbe
oity. Tbo Minister of Militia, from
whom the lease was recently obtained
by Ludgate, ou recommendation of
the local member, Rov. Mr. Maxwell,
stated that he had taken all due measures to satisfy himself tbat tbe island
was not needed for military purposes,
having been informed by the admiral
ou that station. It was represented to
him that 1250,000 was to be expended
in improvements, 1,000 men employed,
and that tho saw mill enterprise would
bo of direct advantage to tho oity. It
was ou these grounds that the lease
was grained, rental being fixed at a
reasonable Bum. The Premier desired
the delegation to embody their views
in a memorial whioh would receive
tlue considtratiou.
LABORERS STRIKE.
John AtkiuBon.   of    Hamilton,   Runs
Pastor Thau   a Horse.
A novel   race took place in Victoria
Park yesterduy afternoon, when   John
Atkinson,   a    well   known     sprinter
urouud town, ran against William Mo-
Goo's horse and won by two feet, says
tho   Hamilton   Herald.    Six   hundred
or   more   watched   the   contest.    The l
trade was muddy, which was in favor*
of tho horse.    The   distance   was  one |
hundred yards and around a post to the
starting point. ,
George Nicholson, of the Horseshoe
Inn, handled thu pistol, ami stmt tbo
contestants off a couple of minutes after 8 o'clock. Big Bill Hunter handled the linos for Mr. Ma-joe, and
drove well. At tho turn Atchison
slipped in the mud and slid on the
ground for a couple of yards. Tbe
win was a narrow one, aud it was
claimed by some that Atchison did
uot go around tho post. The referee
decided that ho did. The time was
not taken. Mr. Magee is confident that
his horse can show its beels to Atkinson, and has posted $20 as a forfeit
with the Herald to run unotbor race
under the sumo   conditions us the last.

Mr. James Fisher is by many degrees the ablest man in public life in
Manitoba. We can say this without
committing ourselves to his opinion
of the commercal navigability of Hudson Strait, on which u Manitoba politician is not necessarily an authority.
Recently he has been delivering nn
nddre8S to the "Industrial Independents" of Winnipeg. Mr. Fisher is a
Liberal of the old school, brought up
on the party faith, and still believes
in the necessity of pnrty as a means of
government. But he also believes
that in its modern development pnrty
in being abused. There is too much
subordination of individual judgment
and conscience. We hand both over
to the leaders, and the remnant of
oonscience left is soothed by the comforting reflection that we are uo longer
responsible for what happens. Mr.
Fisher does not put it exactly in these
words, but tbis is his meaning.
How true it is no reflecting person,
himself not the victim of the mania,
reqnires to be told. Thero is ono thing
that will stir tho party man into
thinking for himself, aud that is his
own personal interest. Touch his
pocket, and instantly it will uppear
that he has convictions of his own
But in all other respects he is content
to he passive. He will nccept a priu
oiple today that he scorned yosterdav,
if but bis party leaders require him.
He will bolt a party dishonesty or rascality without the straining of a muscle. We may juggle with our own ren-
son ns we will, hut to this low level
hns pnrty been dogrnded in Onnadn.
As low as tbis nnd lower if possible
hns it become in our Provincial poli
tics. Here party iB divided betwesn
the Onts and the Ins; there are no distinguishing political principles separating them. The Ins are handed together to stay in, and as we have seen
thiB session their roproseutntives in the
Legislnture will stick at no baseness,at
no stultification, to achieve thoir purpose. And out in the country, among
the eleotors who have not a penny to
gain ons way or the other, those of
them who are partisan cheer them ou
in the entirely satisfactory belief that
they are doing the very thing for
���which thev were elected.
Honest government is becoming   impossible in Canada;   it   is   u question
if it bns not already  become impossible.    And only   in   slight degree  perhaps is it worse one  place than in another. Whether at Ottawa, or Halifax,
or Fredericton,   or  Charlottetowu,   or
Quebeo, or Toronto, or   Winnipeg,   or
Victoria, it is all the same, or so little
different as scarcely   to  be noticeable.
The cleanest spot   today is Regiua; in
all all other  places it is a struggle between the Outs aud the Ins, scheming
and intriguing everywhere,   with   the
field   strewn     with   broken promises,
violated pledges,and nbautloued principles.    Gt ���'erumeuts   trade for support
at the public expense as freely us if it
were a virtuous thing to do.    And the
most lamentable pnrt   of   it all is that
the people look ou and applaud.   There
is no public conscience left   to   touch.
To   secure   better    government    Mr.
Fisher   says  the   people   must  either
keep more vigilant watch over legislation or we must resort to the   referendum.    The latter he does uot favor, and
greater   vigilance,   with   the    people
parties to tho wretched  game, is next
to hopeless.    Yet therein  lies our only
ohance   of   safety.    The   people  must
awaken   to   tbe   fact  that politics  is
something more than a mere  race  for
power.
IgOTOUS development, however, and
isters hastened to disclaim any
such intention, The Sandon Mining
Review points out that this tax is already burdeniOBie enough; indeed,
that it is worse thau burdensome, as
it is wrong in prinoiple nnd therefore
unjust. A mining proporty in any
stage of development is subject to the
I;.**.. It may prove a mine, or the
thousands of dollari oxpended on it
may all in the end be lost, yet tbe
few sacks or tons of ore mined during
development and shipped out to help
pay the cost are made to oontributo to
the Government treasury. This ia a
tax on enterprise aud industry, not on
value. When n mine is established a
tax ou the output would not be objec
tionable, either in prinoiple or In Hi
practical operation; but to tax itwhilo
still in process of development, and
before it can be known whether
it may not hnve to be abnndoued, is to
discourage   enterprise.
In this connection our Sandon contemporary raises the question whether
the whole system of taxation, as in
operation in this Province, is uot
constructed on a wrong basis. The
Government appoint assessors ovir n
territory of snch enormous area that it
is impossible they can make themselves familiar with volues. They visit
a place liko Sandon, for instance, and
in a couple of days are expeoted to learn
all there is to know of stocks, incomes,
personal effects, etc This is manifestly impossible, nnd as n result "un
(Ier assessments, over assessments, and
total omissions nre the rule." That,
however, is merely n matter of detail
in operation; the principle underlying
it is more serious. Why should the
Government send out these agents to
levy and collect taxes which, if imposed
at all, should be imposed by local authorities and collected for local purposes? There is too much paternalism
about the system. The great need of
this Province is a little more home
rule. The peoplo ara treated as if incapable of looking after themelves,
and are therefore taken in chnrge by
Government and their agouts. They
are put in the category of minors or
imbeciles. It hns been for some time
a puzzle to The Minei to discover why
there should he such a Government
official as a Gold Commissioner. Perhaps in the earlier days of tho Province it was necessiiry to furnish the
peoplo with guides, monitors,and caretakers, to keep them out of mischief;
but in these days it is surely safe to
permit an ordinary citizen to put his
head out of doors to seo how the wind
lies without the protection or consent
of a Gold Commissioner. In the matter of schools, tho people aro absolutely
powerless; they cannot, as our contemporary puts it. "buy a broom or a
cord of wood" for their puplic schools
with the certain knowledge that it
will ever be paid for. In respect to
management or coutr )1, the people aro
as much children ns the little ones
who attend the school.
A politicnl party who will shape a
new policy on nil mutters of locnl
government, and inaugurate a system
of radical reforms, will find many adherents.

they got it "somewhere" 111 Columbia.
The $11103 was found to be all there.
It appears ihat the package was
sent by Dominion Express from Nelson, and traveled via Revelstoke, Pen

���he used only a few ingredients in
preparing hor camp meals. Flour,
dried fruit, rice, salt, pepper, baking
powdor and salt pork were the contents
of the larder from which she worked.
She prepared some dough for the purpose of making bannocks.but also utilized the dough in making of several
other dishes. There were so raanv on
the stove oooking or on the table in
course of preparation at one time that
many of those mun who knew nothing
whatever about oooking before attending, became confused and gave up trying to follow tho lecturess, but did not
forget, however, to help themselves to
a portion of the several dishes whon
they were passed about. At the conclusion of tho lecture Messrs. Monoghnu,
Bates and other of Kootenay's early
prospectors, pronounced themselves ns
thoroughly satisfied that Miss Livingstone oould oook about aa well lu the
mountains as in a kitchen.
The ladies of the Nelson Local Conn-
oil of Women are very much indebted
to Miss Livingstone for the lecture.
It was given in aid of the library fund
and was Miss Livingstone's donation.
Many tiokets were sold and several
dollars taken, in at the door aud the
total will be quite a  help to tbe fund.

through the mud in tho blackest of

corner Ward and Victoira streets when
he fell into a hole, which was neither
proteoted by planks or guarded with a
lantern. He managed to pull himself
out and it was then he made his way
to The Miuer office where he cleaned
his clothes as best he could, seoured a
lantern and left for homo. K Miner
reporter afterwards paid a visit to the
manhole in question aud found it all
that the indignant citizen had claimed.
There were two other excavations in
the vicinity, both with lanterns hang

not marked iu any way. It was right

FOR A FEDERAL   BUILDING.
0. P. R. Does Not Look Kindly Upon
tbe Sampling Works.
Nothing lias yet beon hoard from the
C. P. R. officials at Vancouver in regard to the request for a site for the
sampling works in connection with
which G. W. MoDowell has been iu
Nelson for several weeks. If an answer is not received within the next
week or 10 days Mr. McDowell will
withdraw from Kooteuay entiroly, -o
far as the sampliug works are concerned, and neither Nelson nor any other
point will secure the industry. The
site asked for by . Mr^ McDowell includes eight feet by 25 feet of the C.
P. R. right-of-way, the balance of
the property being 40x125 feet of tlie
fore shore of Kootenay River. Mr.
McDowell is assured of the Government
property but oan do nothing until he
hears from the O. P. R. If tho site is
granted him he will immediately proceed to build ; otherwise nothing will
be done. He has already placed orders
for the -machinery for the mill and in
case"he is refused the site he-will'be
compelled to cancel the orders al a
big loss to the people be represents.

City Places an Order for Six Hundred
Feet of Paragon.
At a meeting of the Board of Works
Committee of the Oity Council held
Monday afternoon a contraot was
awarded to the Gntta Peroba aud Rubber Manufacturing Co., of Toronto, for
the supply of 000 feet of Paragon cotton, rubber lined fire hose, 2% inches,
at 90 cents per foot, with couplings
oomnlete, two Maltese oross flexible
rubber play pipes aud four Babcock
Chemical extinguishers, of six gallon
capacity each. The sale was made by
Mr. A. G.McKenney, British Columbia
agent of the company, who has
equipped nearly evsry town in British
Columbia with fire hose and other
equipment of that nature. The matter had been referred to the committee
by the Council, with power to aot
and it waB partly npon the recommendation of Chief Thompson that the I that'saton "the
South Kootonay Board of Trade Should
Act Quickly.
The South Kootenay Board of Trurto,
if it does uot aot quickly, threatens to
make the same mistake that it made
one year ago, that of being too late
with its request to the Dominion authorities for a Federal building in Nelson. The Parliament meets on Mnroh
16 and it has been the intention of the
board to lay before it a Board of Trade
report for the purpose of showing why
Nelson should have the building it
asks for. This report has not yet been
compiled, partly, it is true, hocause of
the accident which disabled Secretary
Swannell. Thero is no time to be lust
uow in having the roport prepared
aud printed and forward to Ottawa.
The feeling is general that Nelson is
entitled to a Federal building but there
is little hope of getting it this year unless the people of Nelson themselves
become active in tbe matter.

Cascade Oity, is thus   reported in the
Record of that town : The case against
Howard  Cameron of the B. O. Tobacco Oo., which recently did business in
tins city and left a  number  of unpaid
bills, when   the   members  of the firm
departed, came  np   on   Monday,   and
was continued   till Thursday.    On the
latter date Mr.    Cameron   was   represented   by   H.   S. Cayley,   of  Grand
Forks, and the accused was discharged
liy Justices   Roehussan and  Rose.    It
was held that ha   had personally   had
nothing to do with   attempting  to get
goods by misrepresentation.    The case
made out by W. A. Milne on Thursday,
on a similar charge, was also  dismissed.    Mr. Cameron's father is expeoted
to arrive  from   Edmonton   tomorrow.

Provincial Constable Lowe, of   Kolomna, has been   dismissed   by the Attorney-General.    Some time   ago   Mr.
Ijowo received notice that he was to remove to Gladstone, a new town on the
Robson and Midway Railway, the Attorney-General having deoided to abolish the position   of   constable   at Kel-
owna.    Mr. Lowe requested that he bo
givuu some   other   post, and  a  oinglo
man seut to Gladstone, which at present* is a rough construction  camp, and
au unfit place   to   take   a   woman  or
young children.    Board   at  Gladstone
costs $40 to $45 per mouth, and   out of
a constable's salary of $86 (no house allowance) it   would be    impossible for
him to live there and keep  his family
elsewhere.    This  request would   seem
a fairly reasonable   one, but   its reply
came in tbe shape of a  notice that his
services   were   no   longer  required.���

A dispatoh  from   Republic
says: The sensation in mining
of
Wash.
���.,_ .  circles
for the past two dayf is  the discovery
of free   gold   in the North   San   Poil.
Th * management knew  that the  shaft
was being sunk in a  chute of rich ore
but had   not discovered that it carried
free  gold until  it   was   found   quite
plentifully on the dump.    An   investigation followed.    The   shaft  was   inspected and   samples taken   from   the
sides   and   bottom   of it that   showed
values by assay of   from   $72   to  $841)
in gold.    Then the dump was sampled
and this showed a value of $235. Then
the entire   bottom   of   the  shaft  was
thoroughly sampled   and   that resulted
in getting a little  more  than $200 per
ton.    The   remarkable part of this  is
that the shaft is six feat in width.
The discovery is regarded as the
most significant that has ever taken
place in the district. The gold bris
tlas out all over the rock and shows it
to be thoroughly scattered through the
rock. There is a streak about two
inches in width that will irobably as
say $1000 per ton in gold. As high i\h
150 ounces of silver  per ton   have also
been obtained.
��   *   #
Where the system of co-opeiation lu s
been given a fair trial it has proved n
success, says Stocks. Many a miner
works underground for six months in
the year to save up enough to prospect
in the hills during the summer sea
son. Some are not fortunate enough
to seoure work during the winter
months and to defray their expenses
sell their claims for very little.
Mining is a   branch   of business  in
which co-operation would be advantageous.    Instead of   scattering in all di
rections, it   would bs better for a few
practical   men   to  get together,   pick
out the most promising   -laint ou their
list and co-operate in working it for all
it is   worth.    At   present   they  often
sell their claims   for a few dollars, th*
property   passes   into   tbe     bands
another, who accordingly turns it over
for four or five times  the price   paid,
and so on until finally   it   comes   into
the possession   of some  syndicate that
reaps tbe profits that might go into the
pockets   of   the  original   locator and
would be his if  he but   conducted his
business on tbe co-operative plan.    Instead of selling undeveloped properties
for a mere   trifle   he might,   on   this
plan, develop them and get more. Such
a system   would also be  beneficial
the   country   at large and tend  to
speedy development.
*   *   *
One developed property in a district
does more to establish a reputation
than a score of prospects, however good
they may be. It does not require
more capital than tho ordinary miner
or prospector generally possesses to go
into a scheme of this sort. When men
show their faith in a property by de
voting all their energies to its development they natiirally gain the confidence of capital. Pactical men will
know a good thing when they see it,
and if it be their own they will work
it mors energetically and economically
than if it were in the hands of some
corporation. Sufficient work can generally be done by hand and a cheap
installed to demonstrate the
property before heavy aud
expensive machinery need be introduced. Mining is essentially a business adapted to thn co-operative plan.
A dozen men or so, bound by ties of
self-interest, if nothing else, could accomplish mnch in tbis way. Tho
idea is worthy of consideration.
* * *
It is probable that an extensive shipment of Slocan ores will be made to
smelting works in Manchester, England. Arthur Brown, representing
the English company, is in the Slocan
oountry, making arrangements for
the shipmout whioh will go via Ta
noma or Seattle aud thence by water to
the Old Country.
