(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)    .
Victoria, B. C., April iii.���There is
a rumor circulated In the liouse that
Hunter's resolution is due to the fact
that the 0. P. 1!. and the lireat
Northern came to terms, consenting to
the Coast-Kootenay being built by an
independent line, with which the two
roads mentioned will have equal
terms and rights. Helmcken's resolution read as follows:
"Whereas it was announced in the
speech from the throne that it would
be the policy of the government to
subsidize a line of railway from the
Coast to tlie Kootenay country, should
the work not be undertaken by the
government as a public work ;
"And, whereas, the interests of the
province impeintively demand that
such steps should be taken as will
ensure that railway construction
should be commenced during the present year and pushed to a speedy completion ;
"And whereas there has been a
strong and almost^ universal expression of public opinion in favor of the
construction of the said railway by a
comrany which will operate independently of the Canadian Pacific railway system;
"Therefore, be it resolved, that In
the opinion of this liouse, thu exigencies of the situation demand that at
the earliest possible moment such
steps should be taken by the government as would enable a company of
proved financial ability, and having
independent eastern connections, to
build such railway as an Independent
competitive line with the C. P, 1!.,
anil it is branches
"And, further, that the company
accepting such bonus should not be
promoted by the C. P. 11., nor by any
person or persons acting directly or
indirectly in the interests of the said
C. P. R. company; and further, that
such company should not at any time
be amalgamated with the C. P. R.,_or
with any company operated by the
said company, or as a part of the ^C.
P. R. system; and further, that the
undertaking of such subsidized company should not at any time hereafter
be leased, sold, operated or controlled
by the C. P. R. company or any of its
branch lines; or hy any company atlil-
iatod with the C. P. 11. company, or
operated, controlled or managed as a
part   of the C. P. R, system; nnd
"Further, be it i.solved, that any
proposed agreement witli such company should, before execution, be approved by the legislature."
Hunter will move an amendment as
follows:   "Hy   Inserting   after   word
"been"   in   the   seventh   line of   tbe
preamble,   the   word   "an," and  by
striking out in said line words "strong
and   almost   universal."      By adding
to the   preamble the following words,
"with a view of obtaiuing a competitive line," by   striking out all woids
in said motion after   word, "ability"
In third line,   and   inserting   following,    "and   having, or capable of obtaining   independent   eastern connections to build such  lailvvaynsan   independent competitive line with   Canadian Pacific railway, lireat Noi them

any of the said railway companies, or
by  any person   or   persons acting directly or indirectly in   the interest of

that such company should not at   any

this morning lie was

even if it meant a rupture with his
leader, lie would leave his constituents to decide whether or not Ills position was justified.
Victoria, B.C., April 80.���Estimates
arc tabled in the liouse Ibis afternoon,
the finance minister promising the
budget speech on Monday.
The bill was completed in committee
amending the Coal Mines Regulation
Act, providing that miners underground must have certificate of qualification issued after examination by a
board composed of representatives of
miners, mine owners and of the government ; must also be conversant
with the English language.
The government is likely to make
material modifications in the railway
bill, probably relinquishing the section by which contracts for contemplated railways will be given by or-
iler-in-council and providing in its
place that a special session be called
in July or August, when the legislature will award tenders. It is also expected Unit this will reduce tlie percentage claimed by tlie province on
the earnings of tho road from 1 per
cont. to 2 per cent, of the gross earn
ings.
AN IMPORTANT
CHANGE MADE

believed, however, that a change was
contemplated in the hour of departure
from Nelson southbound but was disposed to believe that the company
would not be In a position to make
the service a solid passeenger train,
for the reason that the passenger traffic between Northport and Nelson
would not permit of the additional
expense in putting on an extra freight
to handle the business now l-.milcd by
the mixed train. From Northport to
Spokune the service would bo doubled
and a chair car or buffet car would be
operated on tlie run. Mr. Jackson

Henry Boy, manager of the London
Consolidated and Richlleu companies,
is in the city today on business in
connection with tho affairs of the
companies. Mi. Roy states that the
���vork on the Silver Hill mine is con-
lined at the present time to development, and that Hie next interestin
feature at the Silver Hill will be the
construction of the tramway to connect the mine with the Crawford
creek wagon road. The work on this
enterprise is to be commenced at an
early date when the snow goes off
sufficiently for operations to be conducted. The tram will be one of the
longest iu the district, as the distance to be spanned is 10,000 tect.
The eleven miles between the bay and
the property is reached with a 3)i per
cent, grade, but from that point to
the mine tlie ascent is very steep,
making the tramway very desirable as
a means of bringing the oro to the
road eouomlca.'ly. From Mr. Roy's
remarks on the subject the inference
may be taken that on the completion
of tlie tramway a large force of men
will be put at work on the mine and
that extensive shipments will be
made regularly.
A. II. Uracey, engineer of the Imperial Development syndicate, has
gone, or is about to go. to the Lardo
to inspect the work on the syndicate's free milling properties, Tlie
last report from Lexington Moun
tain, where the properties are located,
was that the work was progressing
nicely and that the showing was Improving consistently. It is worthy of
note thut shares in Hie Imperial syndicate are now at $100 premium.
R. Roberts, engineer of tlie Taiu-
arac mine near Ymir, was in the city
last night for tlie purpose of meeting
F. VV. Rolt, president of the company. Mr. Roberts states tbat arrangements aie being made to ship 100
tons of ore from the Tamarac
to the reduction works at Silica, 11.
C. ,for test purposes. It is believed that
tlie ore will prove amenable to one of
the cyanide processes and that the
experiment ut Silica will oemonstrate
which of the methods is best suited to
the product. When this fact is demonstrated the company will erect its
own reduction plant at a point where
the truinway reaches the railroad
track.
Yesterday's mining records were
light: Locations, the Robinson Crusoe, on Hull Creek by Thomas Livingstone and Richard James; certificates
of   Work,   to   John   Callahan   on   the
An important change is announced
in connection with the C. P. R. despatching staff on the Nelson division,
The despatchers number four and are
located at Nelson und Smelter Junction, the lutter crew operating the
Rossland branch and the Columbia &
Western. On May 1 the entire force
will be moved to Nelson and the despatching for the entire division will
be done from this point in future.
John S. Lawrence, chief despatcher
and trainmaster of the C. A W. and
Rossland branch, will be trainmaster
of tlie entire division, and John Hamilton, of Nelson, who has been trainmaster of the lines within the limits
oi the division on this side of the river, will take the position of chief despatcher of the entire division. In
this capacity he will have charge of
three despatchers who work eight
hour tricks und undei take the movements of trains through to Rossland
and Midway. All the lines in tlie division, the Columbia A Kootenay, Co-
Imbia at Western, Rossland branch,
Nakusp A Slocun and Procter branch
will receive train orders from Nelson,
and the arrangement materially increases Nelson's importance as a railroad center.
The   work on the bridge across   the
Columbia river at Sproat's Landing is
rapidly   drawing to a   close  so far as
the masonry is concerned.    II. J.Cambie, resident   engineer of   tlie Pacific
division, -vas   in the   eity  yesterday,
and in   reply   to  a query stated   that
Contractor   Gunn would have his contract finished and   be away  from   the
ground in two   weeks.    No announcement   has   been   made   as   yet   as to
whether the company   would   proceed
at once on the   conclusion   of the masonry work   with the erection of   the
superstructure   for   the end span.   It
was understood   that this work would
probably be done   at  once,   although
the   superstructure   for     the   central
spans could not be touched until after
the next low water period.    The piers
at the bridge are regarded  as  an   excellent piece of work and the eoutract
is to   be   finished   easily   within   the
specified period.   At  one juncture  it
was   feared   that   high  water  would
overtake  the   work before   the  piers
were above the high water point  and
it was at   this   time   that Contractor
Gunn bioke away from   the   principle
he has clung to   throughout  his business career and   worked   his   men on
Sundav.    It is only fair   to state that
from   start to finish   there  was  only
one Sunday when a tool was  lifted ou
the   piers, aud this   makes the bridge
somewhat of a novelty a-iong the railroad undertakings of the Kootenays.
A report is current in regard to
Pan-American exposition rates that
the roads operating out of Nelson will
g-'ve a rate to lluITalo below the sin-
i e fare tariff decided on from coast
points. It is thought that a 850 rate
from Nelson will be granted and that
this explains tho delay in confirming
the rate up to the present time.
Yesterday the last train of ballast
was hauled into the C. P. R. yards
and distributed, the work having
been completed. The steam shovel
will be kept in commission at Five
Mile point for some time, however,
and ballasting will be continued east
of the city as far as the recently acquired section of road extends. The
appropriation work on the division is
not proceeding as rapidly as the engineering stuff would like, largely
because the facilities for getting out
material are not available. The shovel
at Five Mile point is a good one and
does splendid work, but the other
shore] on the division, now lying at
the depot, is worn out and does such
indifferent work that it is practically-
useless. This has naturally kept the
work back.
The spring work on the boats of tho
C. P. R. fleet is in full swing and all
of the craft are undergoing changes
or repairs. Ihe Nelson is tied up at
the shipyards, and the Moyie is having the Interior altered. The space in
the vicinity of the dining saloon is to
be rearranged to permit of the addition of five state rooms, the demand
for sleeping accommodation being
somewhat greater than the supply
heretofore.

The departure of Ihe location party
for the scene of operations on the. Lardo railroad practically removes the
last suspicion of doubt as to the C.
I'.R. pioceeding with the construction
of tlie line this summer. The daty of
the location party is to precede the
contractor and plant the stakes for
the work. An announcement is expected about the loth instant, as to the
contract for the road and local railroad men arc disposed to connect tbe
firm of Larson, Welch and Stewart
with the undertaking. The turning
of the first shovel of earth on the
road is safe to inaugurate a boom in
the Laido. The compuny has been
waiting for a railroad for several
years aud with this in a fair way to
be accomplished within a few
months, the district will enjoy the
prosperity its mineral resources en
title it to.

greatly exceeding the exports. Some
relief is hoped from tlie additional

thai Joseph Martin had been taken Into the Diiiisinuii cabinet as attorney-
general in place of D. M. Eberts, resigned. The Miner's special correspondent nt Vlotoria sends us nothing
ou Hie 11,alter, and the story is probably a canard. Yesterday's despatches
from tin- coast capital throw a little
new light on the political situation.

THE CENSUS.
A I, lirst blush It would seem easy
enough to stute how the population of
Canada increased from decade to decade from the time the lirst census
wus taken down to the present time,
but. an examination of the record, or
rather record., shows that early censuses were taken in very pleoomeal
fashion.und thut the term Canada covers u very different part of the earth's
surface at different times. Then the
old enumerators hud a wry provoking habit of taking the census of Ar-
endin In one year, nnd then the census of Quebec five yeurs Inter
to get an idea of the population of nil

Canada a good ileal of estimating nnd

done; and In u country like Canada,
constantly receiving Immigrants,noth

Yes,August Flower still bus the lurgest sule of uny medicine iu the civilized world. Your mothers nnd grandmothers never thought of using any
thing else for Indigestion or biliousness. Doctors were scarce, and they
seldom hoard of Appendicitis, Nervous

They used August Flower to elenn out
the system nnd stop fermentation of
undigested  food, regulate   Ihe  action

CURRENT COMMENT
THE POLITICAL CRISIS.
Less thun a year ago it might have
been suid in the words of the immortal Gilbert that the Hon. James Dunsmuir had been "wafted by a favoring
gale, to a height which few cun
senle, save by long and weary
dances." Certainly the dunces which
terminated in the election of the
premier to his present position were
neither long nor weary, lie rose like
the proverbial rocket, from political
nonentity to the supreme scut at a
single bound, und, it may be added,
signs are not wanting that lie will
surely come down like the slick.���Nanaimo Herald.

Why we are enabled to manufacture Tailor-
made garments ready-to-wear.
Because we have the Experience 1
The Proprietors of the "Royal Brand" have been engaged
in the development of tailor-made garments for many years and
only after perfection had been attained were the public given an
opportunity to purchase this clothing.
Because we have the Foreman and Designer 1
Who must necessarily possess experience and taste.    Need-
I less to say the head of this department in the manufacture of
" Royal Brand " clothing possesses both.
Because we have the Makers!
Those engaged in putting- together "Royal Brand" clothing
are master hands. Much depends on the making and ordinary
tailoring would not hold its shaplih'ess nor give the wear which
is demanded from these garments.
In future this label will be attached to all garments and
will be found in tbe left hand pocket of the coiU
Registered Brands " Royal" and " Fit-Reform."

The "Ooffee-Never-Hurt-Me" People.
Some famous brain workers have
made a welcome discovery along the
line of recoveiy of health by the pio-
per selection of food. Several were of
the "CofTce-ncver-hurt-me" kind,
but, as an experiment, tried leaving
it oft' ten days, aud the use of Postum
(deal Food CotTee in its place. A
definite and decided improvement in
health is practically certain to attend
such a change. Look carefully into
the state of health of the individual
who knows that "coffee don't hurt
me," and you are almost sure to find
some form ot physicial ail or functional disturbance���perhaps muddy
complexion, or weak eyes, incipient
heart failure, kidney trouble, liver
or bowel disorders, or some form of
weakness tbat shows plainly enough
by the cry for relief sent up from
some organ of the body.
Why does the dismissal of Coffee nnd
the use of Postum bring help? Experiments in artilicial digestion show
clearly to the scientific Investigator
that coffee arrests digestion, an.l according to one authority allows only
ill per cent of the food to be digested.
That strikes at the very key-stone to
the ar.h of health. Failure in digestion means lack of good blood, and
therefore a lack of food for the nerve
centers. As the nerves control the organs of the entire body, one can readily understand that a disorgani/.ed
nervous system may show effect in
any part of the body. Therelore, a removal of the cause will allow nature
to right herself. A powerful assistant to nature is I'ostum Cereal Food
Coffee, composed of the albumen,phosphates, gluten,otc,from which nature
builds in the delicate tissues of tbe
nerves.
Postum aids digestion without
drugging, and furnishes a concentrated liquid food as well as a most delicious morning Coffee.
If the reader has ever failed to
make I'ostum satisfactorily, it will
he found that to allow it to boil IO
minutes after boiling commences, will
solve tbe problem, as it must be so
boiled to extract taste, color and food
value. It is the only original Food
Coffee with a pleasant coffee flavor.
Many imitations of Postum are now
upon the market. The only palatable
ones thus far tested prove to be made
of a low grade of coffee, and some
other articles, notwithstanding the
Jond claims that they are "pu-e."

THE MEN'S RECORDS���
Jim Hums and Charles (luff, the
men who are to meet here next month
in a sparring contest, have arrived in
the city and will commence training
for the event at once. Hums is registered at the Hume with his trainer
George Lawler, and Goff is at the
Phair. Burns comes from Detroit and
has made sparring his profession for
five years. His hardest proposition
was at Memphis, Tenn, when he met
Jim Hall tho Australian and the contest resulted in a draw. He has
sparred at many points east of the
Rockies and has a good record in the
west. In December last he defeated
Vic Lang-ley at Wallace, Idaho, in the
third round. In February he met
Charlie Goff at Spokane and fought
ten rounds ending in a draw, on
Marcli SO he defeated doff at Rossland
and a week ago he put Eel Cuff out
of business with ease at Rossland.
Charlie Goff has fought. 85 contests
from New York to San Francisco,
meeting all the middle weights of any
repute except Ryan and McCoy. He
has been the sparring partner of Cor-
bett, (lus Ifiililin and alim Jeffries.
Hums is the heavier of the Iwo men
but (Joff is superior in science and
quickness so that the two are well
matched. The promoters of the exhibition guarantee that the contest
will be brought off solely on the
merits of the men.
