Attendance Small ���Important Business.
Accident   at   Bowmanville.
Enthusiastic Members of
B. P. Police.
(SPECIAL, TO THE MINER.)
Toronto, April .1.���There was a
very small attendance at the annual
meeting ot the C. W. A. compared
with those of a few years ago. Business did not last long and the most
Important matter decided on was the
determination of the association to
again assume control of racing. The
Canadian Cyclist Association has
practically given up the ghost and it
was pointed out bv Louis Rubenstein
of Montreal and Hal. II. Donly that
this organization would drop out of
the field entirely if tho C. W. A.
would assume the obligations which
they have entered Into. The executive was instructed to arrange about
the transfei and if It Is practical it
certainly will be accomplished. The
C. C. A. will be forced to retire
whether they like It or not. No compromise will be accepted. Secretary
Howson's scheme of dividing the
country into seven districts Instead of
twenty-one as has formerly been the
case went through in sweeping fashion. The formation of a junior
leagne was also favorably received and
in future all cyclists under tbe age
of eighteen years will be extended
half rate privileges A' capital stroke
was accomplished when II, II. Donly,
wbo has fought a good fight in the
interests of the C. W. A. and wheeling generally, was selected for the
distinction of having tho first honor-
��iy life membership in the association
conferred upon him.
Ottawa, April Si���Eleven recruits

Mrs. Holmes remains here a few days
with friends.
llowmanvillo, Ont., April 5.���A sad
accident occurred here this afternoon
from the result of which the youngest son of J. B. Martyn of this town
will likely lose his life. While out
shooting alone, his gun was discharged when he was crossing a creek at
the flats near town on a foot bridge.
The charge of shot entered his right
side, piercing his liver and striking
a rib where it scatteied, some ot it
entering his lungs.
YANKEES   TOO GOOD.
English Sporting Paper Admits U.
S. Yachts Beet.
London, April 0.���The Field commenting on the forthcoming raees
for'the America Cup says: "The average British sportman long ago arrived
at the conclusion that our American
cousins are one too many for us at
the yacht game and most yachtsmen
refuse to accept the hardy annuals
offered as apologies from successive
defeats. These excuses fall to account
for tbe fact that although since 1851,
some 25 races have been saile.l, only
twice has a British yacht come in
first."
MINES ALL RUNNING.
No Sign of Tiouble in the Rossland
Camp.
Rossland, April 5.���The mines here

except in free trade and declares that

009,000 to crush American independent
concern;.

RUSSIA'S
EXPLANATION
Maintains its Organization In
Manchuria Until Affairs
are Settled.
Deprecates Alarmist Reports
Circulated Regarding its
Intentions.
RAISED THE QUARANTINE.
Smallpox Epidemic at Phoenix Practically Stamped Out.
Phoenix, II, C, April 5.���On instructions issued by Dr. Fagan, provincial health officer, Victoria, Drs. Jones
and Boucher yesterday raised the
smallpox quarantine which has been
maintained against the Granby bunk-
house and Old Ironsides hotel for the
past two weeks. The epidemic is
practically stamped out. No new
cases have developed within tlie past
five days. The epidemic was not as
widespread as the exaggerated reports
circulating on tbe outside would lead
one to believe. In spite of the rigid
quarantine of so many miners the ore
shipments have not fallen off in the
least. Five thousand tons were sent
to the Granby smelter for the week
ending Maich SU;
A TOWING TRUST.
Buffalo, N. Y., April 5.���The May-
tham Towing and Wrecking Co., the
only opponents to the Great Lakes
Towing company a combination of
practically all the other towing interests on tbe great lakes will probably be absorbed by the latter concern. It is understood that an offer
made by the Maytham company is being considered by the Great Lakes
Towing company and that the proposition will be acted upon at a meeting
of the directors to be held in Cleveland next Tuesday.
J. E. PORTER DEAD.
Syracuse, N. Y., April 5.���A special
to the Post-Standard from Skanateles
says: "James Edward Porter died
in that village tonight aged 78 years.
Mr. Porter was born in Albany and
was secretary of the legation at Rome
for several years. He was related to
Commodore Porter. A daughter of
Mrs. Burritt of Walerbury, Coon.,
survives.
Washington, April 5.���The United
States government has received a communication from tlie government of
Russia of unusual importance. It
bears on conditions in China and particularly those relating to Manchuria.
The document has created a profoundly* favorable impression at the state
department, as it is looked upon as
the most salutary development that
has occurred in many months in the
eastern situation. Although the terms
of the Russian communication are
withheld, it Is known that Russia
takes objection to give a strong assurance of her disinterested purposes
throughout her dealings with   China.
The belief is held  in   official   quar-1
ters, tnat. tbe assurances of Russia are
so sweeping as completely to avert the
threatened crisis   in   Manchuria.
for   the   gradual    evacuation   of   the
province proved to be impossible.
As regards tlie eventual restoration
of the province to China, it is manifest that such intention can only be
carried out when the normal sittuu-
tion shall be completely restored in
the empire and the central government established at the capital, inde-
neinlei)t[aiid strong enough to guarantee Russia against an occurrence of
the events of last year.''
Tien Tsin, April 5.���It is reported
here that the Russians have been en
deavoring to force a purchase of the
disputed railway siding from thcorig
inal Chinese owners.
HUGE PASSENGER LIST.
New York, April 5.���The North
German Lloyd steamer Rhein, which
arrived today from Bremen had 3,440
steerage passengers,probably the largest number ever brought by a single
steamer to this port.

FROM A TRIP OF INSPECTION.

REPORTS.
St. Petersburg, April 5.���The Russian government concludes a lengthy
statement respecting tbe Manchurian
agreement in these words: "While
the Russian government maintains its
present organization in Manchuria to
preserve order in the vicinity of tbe
broad frontiers of Russia and remains
faithful to it original and oft repeated political programme,it will quietly
await tbe further course ol events."
St. Petersburg, April 5.���The official Messenger today published a detailed review of the negotiations conducted by the allied powers with the
Chinese plenlpotiaries at Tien Tsin
and Pekin and of the negotiations
that led to the presentation of tlie
French draft of peace conditions,
whicli consisted of twelve points, hut
are not vet concluded.
The Russian government makes the
following statement: "While anticipating an early settlement of the
questions affecting the mutual relations between all the powers and
China, the Russian government, on
its part, considered it necessary to
concern itself with the establishment
of a permanent order of things in the
Chinese territories along the borders
of which the Russian Asiatic possessions extend for a distance of eight
thousand veigts, (5,300 miles). To
this end provisional written conditions for a modus vivendi were agreed
upon, first between the Russian military authorities and the Chinese gov-
ernois of three Manchurian provinces,
with reference to the subsequent institution of a local civil administration ; and after a careful consideration
of all the circumstances the Russian
governmnt drew up the draft of an
agreement with China providing for
the gradual evacuation of Manchuria,
as well as for the adoption of provisional measures to assure peace in that
territory and to prevent the recurrence of events similar to those of
last year. Unfortunately, with the
object of stirring up public opinion
against Russia, alarmist rumors were
circulated in the foreign press regarding the purpose and intentions of the
Russian government. Falsified texts
of a treaty establishing a protectorate
over Manchuria wore quoted and erroneous reports were designedly spread
of an alleged agreement between Russia and China.
As a matter of fact, this agieemcnt
was to serve as a basis for the restoration to China as contemplated by the
Russian government of the province
of Manchuria, which, in consequence
of tbe alarming events of last year,
was occupied by Russian troops. In
order that the requisite military measures might be taken it was imperative
that the question should be settled
one way or tbe other. It was impossible to lay_down forthwith by means
of mutual agreement the conditions
of the evacuation of Manchuria. According to the news roccived, serious
hindrances were placed in the way of
the conclusion of such an agreement,
and In consequence of its acceptance
by China,   which   waa   Indespensable
J. C. Dicwry has returned from a
trip of inspection to the True Blue
group on Kaslo creek, and spent
yesterday in tho city. He states tbat
the recent strike at tlie property was
quite us good as he had been led to
believe and that there is every indication that tho property will turn out to
be a mine. The exploration crosscut
run to pick up the lead lost by the
former owners of the property came
into the ore under circumstances
which leave uo doubt that the vein
lias been recovered. The ledge at the
point where it lias been encountcied
is no less than seven feet in width
and tbe ore is identical in appearance
with the high grade product shipped
under the old management. The last
two lots sent to the smelter by the
former owners went 10 4-10 per cent,
and 12 l-lo per cent, in copper, re
spectively, together with 8:1 to $S in
gold. Specimens from the new strike
have been taken for exhaustive tests
and if the ore proves equally good,
which there seems little leason to
doubt, the Cauadian Gold Fields syndicate will proceed as rapidly as possible to make a mine out of tlie prospect. At present the development
crew is drifting on the recovered lead
for the purpose of establishing its
continuity. Mr. Drewry is naturally
elated at the success which followed
the plan of work mapped out by him
on taking hold of the True Blue a few
months ago,
A   NEW   PRESERVATIVE.
A Danish Butter Maker Reported to
Nave Made a Wonderful Discovery.
Copenhagen. April 5.���A Danish
butter maker lias discovered a new
preservative whicli exeells everything
in that line heretofore known. By
means of this preparation it is possible to preserve butter, meats and all
kinds of perishable merchandise. Experiments show that butter, for instance, can be preserved, melted and
cooled off again without losing any
of its freshness. It can also he placed
among goods that ate decomposing
or contain rank odors without being
affected. The preparation is not Injurious from a sanitary point of view,
and. it is said, will create a revolution in the shipping of perishable
merchandise.

salutes and the customary official
visits -vero extended.
The Duke and Duchess are. in excellent health and thoroughly enjoying
t.'.ll trip.
The Ophir on April 1 passed the
steamer Andia in the Gulf of Suez
with Lady Curzon, wife of the viceroy
of India, on board. The two steamers
exchanged greetings.
ROUSSEAU    IMPROVED.
Paris,    April  5.��� The   condition   of
M. Waldcck   Rousseau,   the   premier,
shows   considerable   improvement   lo
day.
Colonel W. S. Ray of the Molly Gibson alining company is in the city
today, his mission being to arrange
tho affairs of the company. Within
the next two or three days an announcement may be expected to the
effect that all the company's obligations have been wiped out and that
the property will start with a clean
sheet. The directors propose to lose
no time in putting the Molly Gibson
ou a dividend-paying basis and their
plans to this end are of a most comprehensive nature.
Colonel Ray was seen at the Phair
yesterday and divulged interesting information in regard to the company's
intentions regarding the big Kokanee creek mine. After expressing
regret that circumstances had been
such as to leuil the bank to withdraw
its support from the company, he
stat-d that upon receipt of the sews
he and a few of tbe directors bad
advanced the funda necessary to pay
the men, it being a principle with
them that tlie crew should not be permitted to suffer. He was not aware
of the action filed against the property until recently, but was not
disposed to criticize local business
houses for protecting themselves, pai-
ticularly in view of the fact that the
business men of Nelson had always
treated the company generously.
The directors had decided to erect a
concentrator at tho mine and witli
a view to determining tlie method of
treatment best suited to the class of
ore on tbe property bad tests made in
this district ami iu the east. It was
proposed to erect a mill of tho capacity of 7", tons per duy. Tbe ore as a
whole would concentrate three to
one.
Another decidedly interesting tea-
tuie which the eoirpany has had under consideration is a proposition to
construct un electric tram line from
the mine to the lake fiont. At present the charges for hauling ore are
$4.50 per ton, and it is maintained
that with an electric line this charge
would be reduced possible to 82, thus
consummating a very substantial saving. Power for the line could he obtained from Kokanee creek at a point
wbeie a fall of ��00 feet is secured.
The present wagon road would serve
as a grime for the track and the initial coat of construction would be reduced by the amount ordinarily payable
for grading.
Colonel Ray states that the confidence of tlie directois in Ihe merit of
tbe Molly Gibson is unimpaired. It
may he stated that this opinion seems
to be very generally held by the mining men and others who have examined the property and know the extent
of the ore bodies in sight. With the
improvements whicli the company
purposes inaugurating the mine will
undoubtedly be restored within a
comparatively short period to its old
position on tlie list of extensive producers.

A GREAT UNDERTAKING.
Taking tlie census is a great under
taking. An army of no less than 9,-
1129 officials are employed, consisting
of one special commissioner, two as
���istants to the special commissioner,
1. chief officers, 335 commissioners
and assistants and a,077 enumerators.
Of chief officers Ontario and Quebec-
are allotted four each, and the other
provinces one each.
The commissioners and assistants
are divided amongst the several provinces as follows: Ontario, 118; Quebec, 112; Hritish Columbia, 22; New
Brunswick, 2; Nova Scotia, 21; Northwest Territories, 20; Manitoba, 16;
Prince Edward Island, 5. Of the
8,1177 enumerators Ontario has 3,803,
Quebec 2,518, Manitoba 582, Nova Scotia 515, New Brunswick 40(1,Northwest
Territories 391, Hritish Columbia,
283 and Prince Edward Island 14!).
Tbe countiy has been divided into
census districts and sub-districts, corresponding respectively as neatly as
may be with the existing electoral di
visions and subdivisions and the units
of enumeiation for census purposes
are the polling subdivision area of the
several electoral divisions adopted for
the last parliamentary elections. With
���o large a number of enumerators,
and with such relatively small areas
to oanvass, compared with previous
censuses, there should be no difficulty
in completing the whole work of
enumeration and of making the return of schedules to the census ollice
at Ottawa before the end of the
month. The official instructions do
not give a meaning to the term "de
jure," which is the system by which
the census is to be taken, but leaves
. the question to be determined largely
by usage, following with reasonable
closeness the practice of former censuses. It is recognized as probable
that some persons may be counted in
two places, and that others may not
be counted at all. For example, a domestic may be reported at Mie ���*-.��_<���
of her   parents   as   a iiiemi.tr the
family de jure, the term meaning literally "rightfully" or "legally," aud
-she may be also reported as dc jure of
the household where she is employed;
or if absent from home for a comparatively long time, and in her present
place of service fo^only a short time,
���be may be left out of the enumeration altogether. The same may oc-
curr in the case of other classes of
Workers. Tbe enumerators, therefore, enter on a special form the
names of members of families or
households who are reported absent,
and whose absence is considered only
temporary. In the case of persons
who have gone away from their home
or domicile to pursue some trade or
calling, or to begin life on their own
account, in any part of Canada or in
another country, no record is to be
made when there is donht as to their
intention to return and they have
been absent for twelve months. Penalties are provided in the census act
for refusal or neglect to answer questions, or the wilful giving of false information, or neglect or refusal to fill
up schedules which the enumerators
have left.
memorialized by the  leading  citizens
of Victoria and Vancouver, who urged
In the strongest   way that tbe charter
should   be   giver,   to the V. V. at.   E.
company   in   order   that   the country
might have a Hoe competing with the
C. P. R.; a deputation from the Associated   Boards  of   Trade   of Southern
British   Columbia, the   region   which
the railway is chiefly intended to benefit, interviewed them and represented
the wishes of the   people here, and the
needs of the district and   the   general
voice of the   residents   of   the Kootenays has, with   no   uncertain   sound,
not in this instance onlj bur for years,
proclaimed the necessity   lor competitive lines of railway   What more does
the government   need, in the   form of
popular expression, to guide it in legislating for the benefit of  the country
and the good of the people?   Surely it
is not intended to   secure the views of
the residents   in the rural and   northern portions of Vancouver island   and
of those in Cassiar   and Cariboo   on a
matter   whicli   can    only    indirectly
affect them.    The   personal   wishes of
the premier in   regard to this charter
are   well   known to   the   public.    He
wishes to give it to the   C. P. R.   and
finds it difficult to   square his  public
duty   with   his   private   inclination
This   difficulty,     however,     is      one
which might very quickly he overcome
were not his political   future involved
in the issue,   and he  perceives that a
toto-cavalier.disregard of the needs of
the   country   is   certain   to   result in
ousting him from office.   He therefore
hesitates between   the fear of   openly
outraging popular sentiment  and   the
fear of alienating the   support   of the
monopoly with which he   is   on   such
an intimate   relations.    Delay, which
will give him   time   to rest  his overtaxed mind, and   which may possibly
offer a way out of the  dilemma,   will
no doubt be   grateful to him; always,
of course, granting that   no "job" is
to be formulated during the recess
longer, now that it bus been strengthened about fifty per cent, by the absorption of tbe great Guggenheim concern? It certainly can, unless there
has been, or is impending, a marked
change in general industrial conditions.
P_Nor is tbeSsingulartiy of the situation lessened by the circumstance
tbat, [according to the reports afloat,
the same concern Is] going to advance
the price of silver while lowering that
ofjlead���twojniutals pioduced"Jlargely
from the same 'mines, and. by tbe
same process.
Of course^there is a difference in
character of the demand foi these
the
metals. That for silver is almost
world wide aid the comparatively
uniform ; while the demand for lead
fluctuates greatly with the changes in
business conditions. As a result the
price of silver might be more easily
controlled than that of lead. At
the same time the fact is that tbe
trust has been holding lead at affixed
price for a considerable time regardless
of supply and demand, and if the
effort is now abandoned people na-

"I am told by a recent traveller in
Russia, "says an English correspondent of the New York Times, "that in
ternally and in asocial-economic sense
that vast empire is in far more distressed conditions than the outside
world is allowed to know. Those
riots of studentsjin St. Petersburg and
Moscow are but the symptoms of the
disease which is gnawing at the vitals of the state in almost every province, certainly throughout European
Russia; financially, too, affairs are in
a bad way, and much as I admire M.
de Witte for his pluck, 1 think the recent measures taken by him have
only helped to increase the confusion
and to paralyze many of the nascent
industries which he has strenuously
endeavored to nurture into vigorous,
independent existence. The expenditure upon the Siberian railway and
the Chinese schemes of occupation has
borne severely upon the already
strained resources of treasure, and the
power   of  the  people   to   respond   to

ORIENTAL IMMIGRATION.
To the Editor,���There is a sugges
tion relating to the immigration of
Chinese and Japanese into Caanda
which I had intended bringing to the
attention of the Dominion Labor
Commission, but not having incorporated with my written statement,
overlooked it. It is one which seems
lo me to offer a simple and reasonable solution of the tortured questi.il
of restricting Oriental immigration,
and one which if followed, wonld accomplish the object aimed at without
giving offence to either party concerned. Briefly, it is as follows: The
fedeial and provincial governments
should petition the Imperial govern
ment to enter into treaties with Japan
and China on behalf of Canada, pro
viding that subjects of either country
as immigrants shall not enter the
other in greater number than say one
hundred in any one year. Such treaties could be entered into without indignity of either party to the contract, and would furnish no ground
for reprisal or resentment in any
way. The immigration uf Japanese
and Chinese into Canada is of little
concern to the government of these
two countries as is the immigration
of Canadians into Japan and China to
the Canadian or Impelral governments. Such a mutual understanding
in the matter is Infinitely more desirable from a national standpoint than
the passing of petty restrictive and
labor laws, which give grave offence
to friendly nations, only bear hardly
on an infinitesimally small number of
tbeir subjects, and in the end fail to
accomplish the object sought. If the
solution suggested above is possible,
and is utilized, it would cause a general feeling of relief in legislative,
diplomatic and labor circles, and
would mevent much class antagonism
and heart burning agitation.

AN
INCOMPETENT
MENT."
GOVERN-
The Rossland Miner declares the
provincial government to be an incompetent one. It thinks that if any
one thing more than another was rev
quired to demonstrate the weakness
and incompetency of the provincial
government in dealing with tlie important matters which they huve been
empowered by the people to deter-
mioe in the best interests of the countiy, it is furnished by their decision
to adjourn the houee for a fortnight
to allow the individual members of
Ihe legislature to consult their constituents on the railway question. If
there Is no covert move in this action
of the cabinet, no concealed intention
of making a point against the V. V.
.t E. company, then it is a confession
on the part of the premier and his
colleagues that they are lacking in Usability to direct the affairs of the
province. What new light they hope
to obtain by sending tlie members to
their constituencies it is impossible
to Imagine,   Alieady they have   been
CURRENT COMMENT
SILVER AND  LEAD.
It now Becms certain that the legislation instituted in New Jersey to
prevent the combination of the Guggenheim interests with those of the
American Smelting and Refining company will result in complete failure.
The decision of Vice-Chancellor Stevens in the injunction proceeding was
favorable to the combine on every
point. About the time the deal was
made the Guggenheims published a
statement to the effect that it was
the purpose of the combine to take
the contiol of the silver market from
the London brokers and regulate the
price in the interest of the miners in
stead of the oriental purchasers.
That tlie London brokers act in the
interest of those having shipments of
silver to make to the east, is a fact
that has long been understood. When
the American miners have complained
of the condition they have been met
with the consoling answer that London is the world's financial center
and, of course, nothing could be done
in the way of bringing relief. The
Guggenheim statement promises to
change this, and if it is done, the silver miners will be duly grateful. And
now is an excellent time for the
change to be made, for, in the face of
steadily increasing shipments to the
east, silver haB been upon the downgrade for the last two or three
months.
Closely connected with the price of
silver is that of lead, and hero again
the smelter combine figures conspicuously. For about a year the trust hus
maintained the price at the arbitrary
rate of four dollars per hundred. At
the time of the arrangement doubts
were freely expressed as to the ability
of the trust permanently to maintain the fixed rate announced, for the
reason that there whb no V7ay of eon-
trolling the output. Nevertheless,
the price has been held steady for
about a year.
Now, however, just as the new combination has been effected which
brings all the larger smelting interests under the management, the report
comes from Salt Lake that there will
probably be a cut in the price of lead.
If this news is authentic, it presents
a rather complex and singular situation. If, for a year, the American
Smelting und Refining company could
keep up the price of lead, the query
naturally aiises why cannot the company continue to do it  for

Tomorrow is the one day of the yeai
when church services are exceptional
for their musical programmes. Incidentally new spring millinery euteis
largely into the calculations of the
ladies, but unless the present weather
moderates this feature is likely to be
cut out for reasons obvious. In all
the city churches, however, special
musical services have been in preparation and in this respect the day's proceedings pnomise to be noteworthy.
At St. Saviour's church morning
and evening services will be fully
choral. Fallis' setting for the responses will be sung and the usual
Easter hymns are arranged for. In
the morning the special features
will be Jackson's te deum, and F. C.
Maker's arthein, "Awake Thou That
Sleepest." After the morning service
the choral communion service by
Simper will be sung. In the evening
the programme includes Tour's evening service and the anthem "He is
Risen'' by Simper. The choir has
practiced thoroughly for the occasion
and they will be assisted by a carefully selected orchestra which has also
rehearsed the programme carefully.
The orchestra includes the following
musicians: First violins, Messrs.
Wambold, Harris and .1. J. Campbell;
second violins, Mrs. Morley and Mr.
Hannington, viola Mr. Morley, 'cello,
Miss Hedlcy, bass Mr. Otis.
At the Methodist church an excel
lent programme has been prepared as
follows: Morning, anthem. "God So
Loved the World," solo, "Calvary"
evening, anthem, "lilessed Is He Who
Cometh," solo "Resurrection," anthem "See Now the Altar." Special
interest attaches to the musical services because of the fact that the new
organ placed in the church last week
will be used for the first time in divine worship. The quality and tone
of the instrument promises to be a
welcome surprise for the congregation.
The pastor, liev. .1. H. White, will
deliver appropriate discourses. The
choir of St. Paul's Presbyterian
church will render special music as
follows: Anthem, morning and evening, "Christ Our Passover " by Schilling, evening solo, "If With All Your
Heart," (Elijah), George Kydd. The
sermons will be suited to the occasion.
The choir of the Baptist church has
recently been reorganized under the
leadership of Robcit Robertson. Their
programme for Sunday includes the
quartette, "Christ is Risen," by
Messrs. Robertson, Stocks, Benedict
and Pariknson, and a solo in the evening by Mr. Parkinson.
The subject of the morning sermon
will be, "The Risen Christ." Evening subject, "Individualism and So
cialism." The church will bo tastefully decorated with potted plants, etc.
At the -hurch of Mary Immaculate,
special stress is placed on tlie musical
portion of the service. The choir has
been practicing for the occasion and a
pleasing programme has been arranged.
Tomorrow at Emmanuel church the
saciament of the Loid's supper will be
observed at the morning service.
The subject of_ Mr. Munroe's sermon
will be "A Risen Church." In the
evening the subject will be "Social
Ressurrection." The musical programme is: Anthems, "Christ the
Lord is Risen," "Our Mighty Lord is
Risen." Solos, "I Know That My
Redeemer Liveth," by Mr Murray;
"Calvary," by R. Thompson "Guard
While I Sleep," by Mr. Caldwell
"Ave Maiia," by Chas   Prosser.

THE   CIVIL   LIST   OF   ENliLAND.
Providing for tlie King anil His Numerous Family.
London, April !i.���Tlie report of tlie
committee appointed to consider
changes in the civil list rcaommends
that the new civil list be fixed at
about ��470,000 us follows:
Privy purse, ��110,000; salaries of
household and retired allowances,
��11)6,000; expenses, ,��193,000; works,
��1.0,000; royal bounty, alms and special services, ��1.1,1)00, and sundries,
��8,000. The report recommends an
annuity of ��30,000 to the Duke of
Cornwall and York; ��10,000 to the
Duchess of Cornwall and York, and
��6,000 to each of the king's daughters. The queen's annuity, in the
event of her surviving the icing, is increased to ��70,000, and an aunuity of
��-.0,0(10 is provided for the Duchess of
Cornwall and York in the event of
her surviving the Duke..
The proposal for the civil list   show
a net  Increase   of   ��07,000.    Mr.    La-
bourehere, the   sole  signatory of   the
minority report, thinks   that   no   increase   Is   necessary.    In    a   piquant
paragraph, he says:    "The committee
did not deem   it   within   the scope of
their inquiry to   considei   whethei   a
continuance   of    the   pomp   of   pride
and cereomiiy   of   the   court is desirable.    Suggestions   havo   heen received that the cost of living has gone up
among the wealthier classes since Initiate majesty asoended the throne. The
idea   Beems   to   be due to the   present
ostentatious   expenditure   of some   of
those   who   have   suddenly    acquired
large fortunes.    But   your   committee
does not believe the   sovereign   would
desire to enter the   monetary   competition with   such   persons, oi encourage bv his example such   vainglorious
prodigality on   the   part   of his   subjects."

Wilmington, Del., April 5.���The
New Vork >. Texas Steamship company's steamer Denver was launched
yesterday from the Haian A liollings-
worth company's yards. An innovation in christening was the substitution of the imperial Japanese custom
of releasing white doves from a box
as the steamer started from the ways,
intsea.l of breaking a bottle of wine
over the bows. Tbe English method
of snubbing try fixed chains, instead
of by cables running througli winches
was tried for the_first time in this
country and worked successfully.

COMPLETED HIS TRIP.
General Manager Whyte Returns
l-'roin Rossland aud Boundary.
William Whyte, general manager
of C.P.R. lines west of Fort William,
has completed Ins trip through the
Boundary and Rossland districts, and
went east by the steamer Moyie yesterday morning. R. Marpole, general
���superintendent of the Pacific lines,
accompanied Mr. Whyte over the
Crow's JS'est road and will return over
the main line toduy. Superintendent
Downie of Nelson went over the lines
under his jurisdiction with the west
ern general manager. Mr. Downie
staced yesterday that while the trip
was largely of routine nature, several
points of interest had been gone into.
With regard to Ihe bridge at Kootenay Crossing it had*been decided that
the new structure would be of steel
on masonry p:e>_ and altogether a very
substantial structure. He anticipated
that within a few days a contract
would be let for some of the work between Nelson and RobBon. Much of
the balance would be done by tho company with work trains and their own
employees. A number of improvements to the Nelson-Robson section
were contemplated this summer and
fall iu order to put the road-bed in
good order before the Columbia bridge
at Robson was completed, to prepare
for the through sen/ice and the 110'
ton Baldwin compound locomotives
which would be used over the line.
A MISUNDERSTANDING
Arises in Connection With Lands Situated in Crawford Bay District.
A misunderstanding is said to have
arisen with regard to lands situated
in the Crawford Bay district. In this
locality is an extensive bench containing several hundred acres of land ad
mirably suited to gardening and other
agricultural purposes. A number of
persons located on the ground on the
understanding that it was government
land. After considerable work had
been done in the direction of improving the ranches it eventuated that the
land belonged to the C. P. R. as part
of the B. C. Southern subsidy and an
intimation was given to the ranchers
that they would be required to move.
J. Lonsdule Doupe, assistant C. P.
R. general land agent, was in the city
yesterday, and on being asked as to
the facts of the case, stated that he
was not familiar with the situation.
The lands In question belonged to
the C. P. R. and had not yet been
thrown open to settlement. If the
squatters had gone into the section in
good faith, however, the company
would as a matter of fairness give
them the first chunce to perfect their
titles by purchase nor would the improvements the ranchers had made
from time to time be taken into -consideration in placing a valuation on
the land.

To Fill Large Contracts - Cood Wagas
Easily Earned.
A Pair in 30 Minutes
Machine weighs 17 pounds. It le more wo"*
derlul than a sewing maohlno, Just
aa durable, and higher speed.
We want a few more workers in this
locality, at once, and in oriierto secure
your oo-operation without tits delay of
correspondence, we herewith expirin
our full plan in this advertisement.
The work is simple, and the Machine
is easily operated, and with the Guide,
requires no teacher,   if you wish to
join our staff of Workers let us hear from you
promptly with the Contraot, order form, and remittance, as a guarantee, and wo will send
machine and outfit to begin work at once.
OUR   METHOD   OF   DOINO   BUSINESS
We wish to secure the services of families to do knitting
for us in their homes. Our method is the same as adopted
In England. We are the introducers of this plan and the
largest   knitting   concern   In  Canada.
After long experience, we have been able to produce an
Automatic Machine by which all kinds of Bcamless knitting Is now done by our Family Machine, thereby enabling
anyone of ordinary intelligence to quickly learn to do the
work from the Instruction Guide. All we require Is that
you use the machine according to directions. The Machine
being made expressly for this purpose, and the operation
so   simple.   It   cannot possibly make a mistake In Its work.
The grtat demand now Is for Bicycle Stockings, Woodmen's Socks, and Motormen's Mittens, and as we arc unable to supply the demand, have taken this method of advertising  for   more   he-lp.
The large export trade to the North-west Territories.
British Columbia, and the British Colonies, furnishes an unlimited demand for our goods, and, with the combined cooperation of the many families we are employing, together
with the large amount of knitting we are able to turn out,
by which we save rents, insurance, interest on capital, etc.,
enables us to undersell any manufacturers of this class of
goods, and we have sale for all the knitting we can hav
turned out.
The price we pay for finished bicycle stockings is $10.00
per hundred, or at the rato of 10c per pair; woodmen's
socks, Fie, and motormen's mittens, 12c a pair. AU other
work   In   proportion   to size.
The  machine   can be   operated   by   any   one  of   a   family
and at our prices any   energetic  family   should   be  able   to
sustain   themselves  comfortably, and in time be a source
Independent   comfor t.
Our plan is to send out each machine to beginners with
a sock or stocking partially knitted, and remaining in the
machine ready to be continued, and also enough yarn to
knit one pair of sample socks or stockings and a simple
and complete Instruction Guide, showing how tho work la
to be done. When tlie samples have been finished and
returned to us satisfactory, we send a quantity of yarn,
which yon knit and return likewise when finished. W'v
prepay charges on all work one way, and our workers pay
return charges. The work, as we have stated, Is simple and
rapidly done, the machine having a capacity of ten thou
sand stitches a minute. We have many persons now fn ou:
employ who can knit from twenty-five to thirty pairs bi
socks or stockings a day, and where the time of a family
is devoted to the work, you can readily see that $15.00 or
>?0.00  ner week can be  easily  earned.
We furnish our workers all the. materials, yarn, etc..
free, and everything that Is necessary for the work. We
are furnishing the machines only for the exclusive use of
those desiring to take employment with us, who must, in
order ,to become a member, send us this Contract" Order
Form,' properly signed by them, and at least one good reference, and remtttanee accordingly, to give us the necessary
Assurance that the quantities of valuable yarn we may send
from time to time will not be wasted or misappropriated.
Onr Interests are mutual, and this confidence must be established If we are to succeed. We guarantee fair dealing
and prompt payment for work, so do not ask us to deviate
from our terms, as we cannot make a distinction with one
snd not another: besides, we are doing an extensive bu.i-
ne��p,  and must  he   governed by business  principles.
Tlie manufactured price of the machine Is il!., and positively will not b*> sold to any others than those who will
a*?rre to do Vnlttlne for  us.
Tf ot anv time after you commence, and have done an
r��mount- of work enual to the purchase price, and wish to
discontinue, we will take back machine and refund the
amount natd for same, after deducting cost of our expense onlv.
There Is a Large Demand by the Trade for this class
of work. Our workers can depend upon It year after year.
nnd If you engaee with us (whole or spare time) we' will
keen you SU polled with work as long as you do It satisfa,-
torllv for us and ret urn ft promptly. We entrust our workers with lar<.e quantities of valuable yarn,  and as  we give'
references as to our honesty and Integrity, we must ask
you to du the same, in order that we may know with whom
We  are dialing.
We have, in as brief a manner as possible, endeavored
to Show vou what our work Is, and we simply say as tu th*
machine, it is just what we represent it to bt-, and will positively do everything we claim for it, oi- refund the money.
Each machine, securely packed with an outfit, is set up for
work, thoroughly tc ited, and a 3ock or stocking! partially
knitted before boxing and shipping. Should you decide to
engage with us, it will be necessary to send us Cash Contraot Order Form, properly signed by you, and at hast one-
good reference, together with the remittance, accordingly,
upon receipt of Which we will forward machine and "outfit
ready   to  commence. Respectfully yours,

"SO DKOWSr
When True Natural Sleep Comes.
Actual changes take place In the little corpuscles of the blood, and
these changes are brought about by
changes in our habits. For instance,
the coffee habit is said to produce a
thickened condition of the blood, that
is, under the miscroscrne the little
round corpuscles show apparent
fibres, an unnatural condition, which
makes trouble with the heart in cases
of coffee poisoning. It also affects
the complexion, frequently bringing
on heart disease in some cases, and
stomach and bowe". troubles are common with coffee drinkers.
"Coffee treated me very badly indeed. I got so I could not have a good
night's rest, and had not for five
years. My eyes and complexion were
duller than my mother's who was also a great coffee drinker.
Physicians told me I had acute kidney and bladder trouble, I was nerv
ous almost to the verge of hysteria,
and my memory failed me. I bad
grown so thin I was little more than
a shadow, and people were continually asking me how much younger my
husband was than myself. (So com
forting to a woman, you know.) In
truth he is five years my senior.
Well, as a forlorn hope I left off
coffee and took up i'ostum Food Coffee
about a year ago. I soon became so
sleepy that I could scarcely stay
awake long enough to take care of my
baby. I did not realize that I was
sleeping naturally and miming up for
lost time. Finally I got pretty well
'slept up,' the drowsiness disappeared
and I felt a decided impiovement in
health. In three or four weeks I was
quite well and only needed to regain
iny flesh and complexion, I waited
very patiently for an improvement in
these conditions but it was about five
months before I was rewarded, then
an almost instantaneous change took
place, and my complexion became
clear and rosy. I gained in weight
quickly, and friends and neighbors
commented on the remarkable change.
I have been constantly growing
better and now am feeling in finer
condition than ever before in my life,
and I can surely say that I owe it all
to leaving off coffee and using Postum
Food Coffee.
My sixteen year old sister like myself, drank coffee from a child. For
the last four yeais she was able to go
to school only a part of the time, and
the doctor said she should not study
at all. I induced her to quit coffee,
and now her bright eyes and fresh
fair complexion show the result."
It will be noticed that it look some
months before this woman secured tlie
result slin wanted in tlie matter of
complexion and flesh. The cbange
from coffee produces a change in this
particular within a month usually,
but it is evident, in her uaso, that it
required time to change the corpuscles
of the blood,> and that uhen that
change was made the let i ,,-as
very rapid.

A WET HOLIDAY���
Yesterday was the most dismal Good
Friday in the recollection of the oldest citizen. The stores kept religiously to their determination to observe the holiday, and the banks and
government offices were, of course,
closed for the day. The quoiting and
lacrosse matches were postponed to
await moie favorable weather conditions.

Laxative Bromo-Quinine removes the cause.
NARROW ESCAPE���
The night train from Spokane was
an hour late last evening and had a
narrow escape. Between Summit
and Yniir the engineer noted something unuBual in connection with the
track and on investigation discovered
that a dead tree had slid down the
bank and entirely displaced one of the
rails in such a manner that the train
must inevitably have been ditched
.si.ack the sp u sp...d. The
incident occurred just at a point
where an emergency rail was located
and after a short delay lo permit of
the new rail being laid the train pro
ceeded.
