GO HIGHER
THAN EVEK
London, April 18.���Tho government
leader, A. ,T. Balfour, in the House of
Commons today made the following
important statement: ''After two conferences between Loid Milner and
Lord Kitchener and the Boer delegates at Pretoria, Lord Kitchener
while refusing to grant an armistice,
on military grounds, has agreed to
give facilities for the election and
meeting of representatives of the various Boer commands to cousider the
position. The Beer Icadeis have
therefore left Pretoria to carry out
this plan." Mr.Baltour added that It
is not expected that communication
between tho authorities and the Boer
leaders could be resumed in less than
three weoks time.
Mr. Balfour's statement made a
generally favorable impression. It
was argued among tho members of the
House of Commons that the action of
thc Boer leaders demonstrates tnat at
any rate, a majority of tbe delegates
favor tho acceptance of the suggested
British peace terms.
The submission of the question to a
plebiscite of the burghers is, aocoi cling to a Boer law, which requires the
leaders of armed forces in the field to
tako tiie opinion of their followers before conoluoing peace.

Brussels, April is.���The chamber ol
representatives today by 84 to 64 votes
rejected the proposal to revise the
Belgian constitution bo as to provide
for universal suffrage.
Tho debate in the chamber today
followed yesterday's lines. M.
Smeets, Socialist, accused the government of being anxious to let loo6e
1)0,000 soldiers against their brethren.
But he added, they would be unable
to exterminate socialism and enough
Socialists wonld remain to continue
the struggle. As the government was
not willing to counsel the king to
do his duty, nothing was left- but lot-
toe Socialists to address His Majesty
direct and plead for his intervention.
If ho but said the word peace would
be reestablished. The vo'e was then
taken.
M. Woeste, the leader of tho right
part in the chamber, when summing
up the debate fir tbe government
pointed out that a vote hostile to
revision ol tlio contitution did not
imply absolute hostility to reform if
tbis was discussed in peaceful times.
"The government supporters are
prepared," said M. Woeste, "to consider proposalB for reform in plural
voting although they could not go as
fur ..o universal suffrage, pure and
simple." This speech is regarded as
showing tlie willingness ot the government to grant partial reform in-the
tuture.
Groat excitement followed tho vote
in the chamber. The Socialists held
a meeting in the Maison dn Peuple at
which M. Van tier Velde the leader of
the Socialist government in Belgium,
urged his hearers to bo calm. He said
that he hoped King Leopold still to
intervene. The meeting adopted a
resolution to continue the strike and
disperse without disorder. .
A eorious riot has ocsurrcd at Tou-
vain, near Brusstls. Tho Socialists
held a demonstration in front of the
residence of M. Scolarit, the president
of the chamber of deputies. When the
police attempted to disperse them they
were received with a shower of
stones. The civic guard then fired on
the mob. A similar riot occurred in
another part of Touvain and altogether five persons were killed and 12
wounded. Some of tne members carried tbe dead and wounded to the
Maison du Proletaries.
The rioting at Touvain began at
about 7.30 this evening. A band of
Socialists paraded the stieets of the
town, smashing windows with bolts
and rivets. Thoy broke through the
police cordon in tlie  Rue   Tirlemont.
The civil guards stationed in tbe
palace St. Antoine became hard
pressed by the riotors and fired a vol
ley. The guard fired a second volley
in Lont of the Catholic club. It is
reported that 12 policemen were
wounded. In somo quarters the, num
ber of wounded policemen is placed at
20 and several are said to have been
mortally injured. All houses ol Ton
vain are barricaded and maintenanc3
of order lias been assumed by the mili
tary.
Another riot is reported lo have oc
eurred ut Bruges, in Flanders. Here
tne police charged the Socialists with
drawn swords and ten of the latter
were wounded.

CAPITAL   PLENTIFUL   AT HOME.
Much is lunrd of Uritish and United
States capital Ior the development of
Canadian resources and it is spoken
of as a necessity. The fact is that
there is no neceisity of going outside
of Canada fur any money that'may be
required for tho ordinary enterprises
of tbe country. Canada stands high in
the matter of the amount ol ready
money at the disposal of its people.
If industries have lagged, or cuter-
prises remained inactive, it is because
Canadians have not shown a disposition to assume tbe flnamal risks involved in their prosecution. On June
80, 1001, thore was to the credit of
tho people of Canada in the post office
and government savings' bank $!>��,-
048,!).r)7, and on February 38, 1003,
there was on deposit payable on demand with the chartered banks-
$288,086,128, making a grand total
drawing only savings bank rate of
interest, 8205,045,080. This amounts
to almost ifiiO for every man, woman
an child in the country. There waa on
deposit in the chartered banks on
February 28, payable on demand,
which may. be presumed to bo the
current amounts of business men,
$04,804,000. /
The amount in the savings banks is
constantly inreasing and besiacs there
is quite a large sum in the hands of
private banners and loan companies as
savings deposits so tha'. the amount
available for incestment may be
stBted in round numoers, us $:iU0,00O,-
000 Looking for outside capital is
therefore apparently not a necessity.
It only remains for the people of
Canada to turn their attention to the
opportunities there are for the profitable investment of monoy, to persuade
them that the investment will return
fair profits for tnern, to cultivate the
habit of taking greater risks than
they have so far done, to make all the
money that is needed procurable for
any and all lho enterprises that have
merit. As the scope for profitable
foreign tiado] widens the means will
he available for commerce, manufactures and shipping, and in mining
when continued profits are snown in
such steady Buccesson that confidence
whioh was badly shaken by the boom
of a few yoars ago, is restored, there
will be, as there is now no necessity,
to look abroaft for financial support.
methods under which publie funds
could ho used to greater advatitage
than in this direction.
THE MINING  LAWS.
A good, sound and level headed set
of men is embraced in the legislative
commitee on mini ig. They have reported to the house that tbey consider
it inadvisable to make any changes in
he mineral and placer mining acts
during tbe present session. Such
wisdom is remarkable and merits por-
petuatiou. Peace und tranquility are
assured in the land and no hideous
dream may haunt the sluraberB of the
timid and coveted investor.���Slocan
Drill.
While it might not be necessary to
add anything to mining law, there
is considerable that might be takon
away from it to the advantage and
benelit of tt.o mioin<r industry. For
instance, the two por cent, tax could
be abolished and some moro equitable
method of tixation framed and put
into effect. Tho clauses in the Companies act which provide such severe
penalties for merely technical violations could be expunged from the
Btatute bouk. With these exceptions
we agree with tho views of the Slocan
Drill.
EDITORIAL NOTE?.
Kaslo is making preparations to
celebrate Victoria day in fine style.
Considerable money wil! be hung up
for prizes for the several sporting
events and au enjovable time is promised to all wbo attend. A number of
Nelson people will go to Kaslo to
participate in the celebration.
The legislature has passed a law
prohibiting alien property owners
from voting at municpal elections,
which privilege they have heretofore
enjoyed. If aliens think enough of the
country to invest their money in city
proporty if they desire to voto they
should buoome citizens. That was
the view that the legislature took of
tbo matter when the law was adopted.
Alexander Dick who, practised in
the Kootenay as a mining engineer
for several years, is now assistant
manager of tbe Dominion Coal Co., of
Nova Scotia. Recently he returned to
Halifax from a tiip through Europe
were he placed a number of orders for
coal for is company. Mr. Dick thinks
it would be a good advertisement for
Canada to build a warship at Sydney
of Canadian steel and present it to the
Uritish navy. The better way would
be to build a warship ol Canadian
steel nnd present it to the Canadian
navy. Australia has a navy of her
own and why should not Canada be
aoujrded a liko privilege.
The Kansas City Journal says if
Canada owns the North Pole, as it is
now claimed "why doesn't she put a
fence around it and tack up warnings
to trespassers?" The claim to jurisdiction over the North Pole was set up
by Hon. C. H. Mackintosh when he
was Governor of the Northwest Teiri-
tories, and tnen it was intended more
as a joke than anytning else. Those
oountries which have possessions
which border on the Arctic ocean
would probably each claim a share
In the pole if ever it iB lucated. The
countries are Canada, Russia, the
United States, Denmark, Norway and
Sweaen. It is doubtful, however, if
ever the question of which country
has jurisdiction ever the pole will
cause international complications of
a soriouB nature, as it is not at all
certain that man will ever he able to
reach it. His efforts in that direction
have so far not been over successful.
A LAUDABLE UNDERTAKING.
The proposal of E.O. S. Seholefield,
the provincial librarian, to organize a
llritish Columbia Lfbrary association
so as to promote tho establish ment ol
public libraries and reading rooms
throughout the province and to seeing
that they are reasonably equipped and
looked after onco tbey are established,
is a laudable one, and. one which
should meet with the full cooperation
of the public. Ontario bus a similar
organization whicb ia in a nourishing
condition, and the members of which
hold annual nieetiugs for tho discussion of topics pertaining to libraries.
Nelson has a freo library; that is to
say, the public have access to the
books and periodicals free of charge
ln the library, but in order to become
book borrowers small membership
fees are exuded. The Nolson library
has proven to be quite an undertaking
for the association having it fa onargo
to carry on. It is a most useful institution, considering the lifb'culties
which it lias encountered, owing to a
lack of sufficient funds to place it on
a better footing. The management of
tho library will, therefore, be greatly
pleased to receive whatever benefits
may come to it through the efforts of
Mr. Seholefield. A library association
would certainly be of groat help in
aiding tho Kelson library and othur
libraries. The proviuco should appropriate a fair sized sum for this purpose,   as we  believe  there   are   few
A glance at the list of eases coming
befoie the full bench of the Supreme
court at Vancouver will easily demonstrate that justice will not be done to
the interior of the province until a
resident judge of the Supreme court
has heen appointed with place of residence in Kootenay. There are 35 caBes
on the list. Of these five are appeals
from the Yukon, one ia from North
Yale, one from Greenwood, ono from
Grand Forks, one of the parties in
which has a Nelson solicitoi, one
from Rossland and eight from Nelson.
This makes eleven from the upper
country as against nineteen from all
other parts of the province, and five
from the YoKon. If the number of
appeals may he taken as a criterion,
and it seems the only reasonable one,
NelBon is as much entitled non to a
session of the appeal eoort as is Vancouver or Victoria. It would be much
cheaper to have the judges take the
trip to tnis oity tban to nave counsel
in one third of the total number of
cases to be heard journey to
Vancouver.

Why
ALABASTINE
Should bo
Used for Tinting and Decorating Walls and Ceilings.
1. IT IS SANITARY.   Physicians say  " Tho walls of a room lo be heallhy must breath*."   Ala-
bastine being a porous cement, permits the free paisagi of nir.
2. IT IS PERMANENT, and hardens with age, en;;- ly different from Italsoaiine preparation..
3. EASILY APPLIED.   Anyone can brush it on���no one can rub it off.
i. CONVENIENT, as it is ready for use by lhe addftion of cold water.
0. IT IS ECONOMICAL, costing for material less than one cent por square yard for plain tinting.
0. LABOR SAVING, as it admits of re-contir.jr from time to time as is necessary to renew, doing
away with the nasty muss ol washing eft" ktJsomlBes and scraping off wall paper.

Work is still proeeeding with most
satisfactory results on the Cooper
creek placers and the diggings are
attracting considerable attention
amongst men working in tbe neighboring district, says the Kootcnaian.
One man, an old timer in tbe prospecting field, and now working in
tho Mc*uigan basin, remarked to a
Koolenaian representative the other
day that as soon as be got through
theie he would make a strike for the
Lardo diggings. ''I've beeu there
before and 1 know the stuff Is there
right enough." Other remarks of a
similar nature were heard in Sandon,
McGuigan and Whitewater and were
dropped from men who know the lay
of the land. That our townspeople
have faith in tlie richness of tho diggings is shown by the fact that Mayor
Goodenough, Gus Kuester, Charles
Bonner nnd others are forming a company to woik claims there and have
sent up representatives
diggings.
to    the
Tho Climax is a very promising
group of claims located on tne summit between Hammill and Toby
creeks in tlie Lardo district. Tbis
property is owned by J. P. Miller,
Chas. Dickson, Andy Olson and Captain Ed. Nelson, und consists of five
claims upon every one of whioh the
ledge baa been traced by means of
open outs. The ledgo averages twelve
feet wide for the entire distance, the
ore taken out assaying 10 par cent,
copper and $7 in gold. In running a
short tunnel on oue of tho claims
about a carload of tbis ore was taken
out, which could, with proper transportation facilities, bo shipped at a
profit. Adjoining this group are somo
propertioa upon whioh J. 3. lleutot
bus done considerable development
worn and in the samo neighborhood
is tbe McLaughlin group which was
bonded to a Boston company last, fall.

RACEJTKACK SUE.
Committ<:e Thiuk Well of Location on
Granite Road.
Yesterday        afternoon Mayor
Fletcher, John A. Turner, Blake
Wilson and J. Fred Hume drove out
over the Nelson-Uracite road to visit
the proposed site for a race track. On
thoir return they were seen by a
Miner reporter and all expressed
themselves as much pleased with the
prospective site nnd thought the
scheme would bo feasible. Tbe road
proved a revelation to all of them, as
although al! wero familiar with the
old 4i)-creek trail, which the road
follows in some places, none thought
such a beautiful dike could have been
made along that route. They followed the road out to the end and stated
that Nelson undoubtedly has one of
the prettiest drivts that could be
fonnd in tbe Kootenays. Of the site
itself the thteo members of the committee will make a report at the meeting that is to be culled and it is
hoped that it will be possible to go
aneud at once. Tlie principal drawback
to the site had beeu its distance from
tbe city, but as the railway track
passes within three hundred yards it
would be an easy matter to have a
trail cut so that those who wished to
to the races, and did tot choose to
Tho
Hat,
utterly useless for any other purposos
than those contemplated, but admirably fulfilling these. The road from
Nelsou to the site is a good one and
with a little fixing would be first
clasp, and the grade being very light
two and one-hall miles would not be
too far foi a pleasant drive or walk.
Tho lake and tho city are in viow
almost the whole distance, going and
coming, and although the grade for
the first mile and one half is a Utile
stiff for comfortable cycling, going
out, beyon '. tllis is a long level stretch
to delight the hcurt of the rider, it is
expected before the meeting that a
number of those interested in tne project will visit the site.

When people are kept awake by
ooffeo drinking and get into a ner-
, vous condition from it, the try all
sorts of ways to overcome the trouble
but generaly endeavor to Slick to
coffee.
A lady says in part of a long letter:
"The only way I could get any sleep
at all, at that time, was by walking
at night in the yard until I got so
tired I would (all asleep as soon as I
touched the bod, but after a little 1
would commence rolling around and
could not lie still or sit in ono place
or any length of time.
I lieoame des^'mdeiit and unhappy.
My stomach was all out uf order and
mv nerves absolutely broken down.
One day a lady friend when calling
said, 'My dear, I believe it is eolt'ee
that makes you so sick and nervous.'
I replied 'I dont believe coffee hurts
anyone. My physician knows that I
use coffee and he has never said anything about its being huitful' She
replied, '1 can't help thut, they did
not toll me either but 1 found out
myself when 1 quit coffee and began
to use I'ostum that I got well.'
I will never forget that October
evening tbree years ago, whon I hnd
my flrst cup of Postum. It was mado
right, and tasted, oh, so good. In
loss than a week I oould see a considerable improvement and tho second
month 1 was well and happy and
peaceful again. 1 have kept so ever
since nnd am now the plcturo of
health and do lots of bnrd work when
I want to." Name given hy Postum

J. Kirkpatriek received a lettor
yesterday from J, Q, Bunyan, who in
working on the erection of a tramway
iu Wyoming. The letter gives an interesting account of the work and
concludes witb an account of a gold
discovery that the camp was just recovering from. It appears that in
sinking a well oue of the mon became
impressed with the idea that thero
might be some gold in the sand at
the bottom, and announced his intention of trying a fow pans. Bunyan
had a Bmall botlle with somo gold
dust from Forty-Nine creek, near
Nelson, aud sprinkled it in the sand
at the place where he knew the other
would try, with the result that great
excitement reigned for several days at
the namp and all mado preparations to
go into gold digging tbeie on a grand
scale. Before any expense was in-
ouried by anyone, however, he gave
the snap away.and since has had hard
time making his peace with some of
tho men who had seen their golden
dreams provo to be rainbows.
