Canada May Yet Take Positive Repressive Action.
Buffalo, dec. 3.
tbe guest of honor at a banquet
Charlton  was
lie   was
liy the Liberal club tonight
given a hearty reception,
other things, Mr. Charlton said: The
day swiftty approaches when positive
actions in the expansive direction on
tne purt of the United States will be
necessary to avert positive action in
tlic repressive direction on the part of
Camilla. Tlie Canadian desires broad,
liberal a"<l friendly trade relations,
but these conditions in the near future must exist on more than one side.
The fraternity of feeling and interests that existed under the old reciprocity treaty have passsed from recol-
lectlon, except on tne part of a Boiall
pen enlace of the men r. ho were then
living. The tendency has been under
the conditions that have existed since
that ilay to develop bitterness of spirit
springing from supposed injuries the
result of grarjpisg aotion, embodied
in a tariff that sought to set aside thu
first principles of commercial intercourse by refusing to make exchanges
ami seeking through a policy nf cx-
cluaion to Hell much aud buy little.
Canada is prepared tor any reasonable
arrangement about trade policies that
will be mutually advaniageous and
thnt will tend to develop commercial
relations and insure enduring peace.
To tbls end and for the purpose of
aiding to secure this object, let us arbitrate the Alaskan boundary question and remove that Source of irri-
i lotion. Let us adjust our mutual
fiscal systems and place tbem upon a
basis that will give due regard to
mutual interests and serve to promote
onr mutual prosperity. Absolute free
trade between all states of the American union has existed since the union
"as funned. Diversity of soil, of
climate, of Interests or of conditions
as great Dctween different groups of
states as between the United States
ami Canada have existed and still
Diversified conditions have not been
permitted to lead to any restriction
whatever upon Interstate commerce.
Unmixed blessings have followed the
application of this free trade Bystem
and as the extent of the area of whioh
it held sway, Increase, the supremo
advantages pertaining to the system
become, more apparent. The trade
Principle that applies to all tbe states
01 the American union could be extended to the British American prnv
"ices anil territories with precisely
h:o same results and while the two
countries ure likely to retain their
separate nutonomy it is in the
interest of each to apply to Ihe greatest possiblle extent the system that
governs the relations of American
states to each other, and to secure to
tt�� greatest attainable extent the
material advantages that would result
'rem union.

Washington, Dec. 3.���The senate I wheD they
listened io the first message of Presi- [their own
dent Roosevelt today and adopted a
resolution directing the appointment
of a committee to co-operate with a
like committee from the house to oon-
sider by what token of respeot and
affection congress might express the
sorrow of the nation upon the tragic
death of the late President MoKinley.
The reading occupied nearly two and
a half hours and was listened to with
marked respect by the senators.
Not In many years have the members of the house listened with such
rapt attention to the reading of the
annual message of a president of the
United States as they did today to the
reading of tne first message of Prosi.
dent Roosevelt.
The reading occupied two hours
but not over a dozen members left
their seats until it was ooncluded.
On motion of Mr. Grosvenor (Ohio)
that portion of the message relating
to the death ol the late preisdent was
referred te a committee to consist
of one member from each state to
join a similar committee of the Senate
to consider and report by what token
of respect and affection it may bo
proper for Congress to express tbe deep
sensibility of the nation to the tragic
death of the late president. The
speaker appointed a committee hoaded
by Mr.Grosvenor and then as a further
mark of respect the house adjourned.
President Roosevelt transmitted
his first message to oongress yesterday. The message opens with a
reference to the death of President
McKinley and to the serious aspect of
the growlh of anarchism. After an
eloquent eulogy on the dead president, thc message adds, no man or
body of men preaching anarchistic
doctrines should be allowed at large
any more than if rreaching the mnr
der ol some specified private individual. Anarchistic speeches, writings and meetings are essentially
seditious and treasonanle, and be
recommends congress to take into
consideration the passing of a law
dealing with anarchists or persons
professing principles hositle to all
government and justifying the minder
of those placed in authority. The
crime of anarchy he places in the
same category as piracy, and should
bo so declared by treaty among all
cilvlized powers.
A reference to the commercial
prosperity of the country naturally
leads up to the questions of trusts
Old laws and customs which almost
had the effect of laws are inadequate
to the requirements of the problems
of the twentieth century. It is not
that the rich have become richer and
the poor poorer, for at no time has
there been greater general prosperity.
There is a general oonviction thnt
the great corporations known as
trusts are in certain of their features
and tendencies hurtful to the general
welfare. Combination and concentration should not be prohibited bnt
supervised and controlled within
reasonable limits. To accomplish this
pnblioity is the only suro remedy
that can now be invoked ; the government should have the right to inspect
and examine the workings of the
great corporations engaged in Interstate business. The president advises
the creation of a new cabinet officer
to be known as secietary of commerco
and industry.
The   president recommends the immediate   reenaetment   of the  Chinese
Exclusion act.     A   paragraph
voted   to   trades   unions
is de-
in which he

combine insistence upon
reports with iawabiding
respect for the rights of others, but,
he adds, "there must also in sore
eases be action by the government in
order to safeguard the rights and
inteiests of all."
Thc president advises oareful econo
mic and educational tests applied to
all immigrants and ln dealing with
trade matters recommends the extension of reciprocity which was always
intended to go hand in hand with
protection.    He says:
The phenomenal growth of our export trade emphasises the urgency of
the need for wider markets and for a
liberal policy in dealing with foreign
nations. Whatever is merely petty or
vexatious in the way of trade restrictions should be avoided.
He proposes the lowering of tbe
duty on those commodities whioh can
be imported from a foreign country
which are no produced at home and
on which r doty is no longer necessary for revenue.
Attention is called to the restoration
of the American merchant marine but
no recommendation for a subsidy is
made. He improves tbe Act of 1900 to
establish gold as the standard money
of the country. Reference is then
made to the work of the department
of agricultuie in giving scientific
assistance to the fainers. Tbe preservation of the forests is touched on and
the relations with the colonies dealt
with at considerable length. He
recommends stringent measures to put
down the rebels ln the Philippines.
He urges every effort to introduce industrial enterprises there The construction of a cable from the islands
to points in Asia and from the United
States to tbe Islands should not be
delayed a day and arrangements
should be made either to lay a government cable or tu arrange by contract
with a private company on such
terms as to secure similar advantages.
The president emhpasises the importance of the construction of the
Panama canal which would benefit
east and west alike. The signed
treaty wherein Great Britain abrogates the Clayton-Bulwer treaty will
be laid before the senate.
The Monroe doctrine is mentioned
at considerable length and what the
president conceives it to mean set out
folly. The Hague conference acquiesced in the statement by the
United States of that doctrine as com-
pat'ble with the purposes and aims of
that confernce. The Monroe doctrine
is a declaration that there must be no
territorial aggrandisement by any
non-American power at the expense
of any American power on American
soil. It la in no wise intended as
hostile to any nation In 'heold world.
Still Icbs is in intended to give cover
to any aggression by one new world
power at tho expense of any other. It
is simply a step and a long step
towards assuring the universal peace
ef the world by securing the possibility of permanent peace on this hemisphere. This doctrine has nothing to
do with thu commercial relations of
any American power, save that in
truth it allows eacb of them to form
such as it desires. In other words it
is rca'ly a guarantee of tho commercial independence of the Americans.
We do not ask under this doctrine for
any exclusive commercial dealings
witb any other American state. We
do not guarantee any state against
punishment if it misconducts itself,
provided that punishment does not
take the form of acquisition of territory by any non-aAmencan power.
The president points nut the necessity   of  building up tbe navy, and of
maintaining the efficiency of the
army, which need not necessarily he
increased. He thought the time had
arrived when the Indians should he
recognised as individuals and not as
members of a tribe. lie advises lilt-
breaking up of the tribal funds and
effort should be made to make the
Indian work bis land like any other
man. The marriage law should be the
same as those of whites.
The events in China and the negotiations by which peace was restored
theie are reviewed and the steps taken
to assist the commerce with China iu
Tuioh the "open door'j with all tbat
t implies had been persistently kept
in view by the American envoy.
Satisfaction is expressed at the results
of the Pan-American congress in
The message concludes with a reference to the deaths of Queen Victoria
and the Empress Frederick, ol Germany, and of the assurances ot grief
and regard from every quarter of the
civilized globe at the lamentable
death of President McKinley, and
with tho expression of hope that international relations of respect and
good will may continue.

Great Rejoicing
tile Circles
Morning Papers Generally   Appreciate
Tenor of President's Message.
London, Dec. 4.���Practically all the
morning papers here publish a long
summary of President Roosevelt's
message to Congress.
The Daily News in an editorial on
tbe subject says: It shows a bold
man struggling with the devil fish of
party intrigue and is in refreshing
contrast to the spread eagles of the
earlier period of American jingoism.
President Roosevelt has set himself a
very high ideal of conduct in pnblic
life and we have no doubt he will rise
to it.
The Pall Mall Gazette, however,
thinks the message will win the
praises of all except the Fenian clubs
to which Mr. Redmond is spouting
sedition. It says thai tbe ideas contained in it are those of a wise bead
firmly set on its shoulders. The Pall
Mall Gazzette highly approving of the
president's suggestions relative to repressive measures to prevent, as the
paper puts it, America from becoming
the dumping ground of the blockheads
and stai velings of Kurope remarks
that there is a contrast between tbis
advocacy of strengthening restrictive
measures and the callous indifference
of the British legislators to flooding
the east end of London with indigent
The St. JameB Gazette says: It is
gratifying to find that thc statesmen
of a country like the United States
are not afraid to make proposals on
the question of anarchism,! which on
the surface are open to the cirtleisui
that they are subversive of personal
lioerty. There is no surer sign of
true statesmanship than the insight
'which realizes when a good theory
becomes mischevious in practices.
Washington, Dec. 3.--It was stated
at the War department today that tbe
decision of the United States supieme
court in the insular cases did not call
for any change in the existing tariff
arrangements in the Philippines.
The secretary of the treasury today
issued to collectors of customs in the
United States a telegiaphic order
directing them to admit free of duty
goods imported from   the Philippines.
Manila, Dec. 3.���The local newspapers hero published extras when
they received news that the United
States supreme courts decision inthe
"fourteen diamond rings" case that
the Philippines were American territory and that the impostiion of duty
on articles imported into the United
tSates from the Philippines is improper. The announcement of the
decision caused great excitement and
jubilialion among the merchants and
general public here. Representatives
of thc principal business houses say it
will revolutionize the entire trade of
thc orient. The civil authorities here
have not yet formed au opinion on
the subject but they think the law
only applies to goods going to the
United States, und are anxiously
awaiting an otlieial communication on
the subject since the decision holds
here fresh means for ootaining funds
to rnn the government will be necessary. The customs house was besieged
tcday by importunate enquiriers and
tbe decision of the Supreme court was
the only tiling talked about at the
clubs, in mercantile circles and in the
civil aud military offices.
Paris, Dec. 3.���The financial affairs
of Count Himi de Castellane again
came betore a Frcncli tribunal today,
when the court of appeals began the
hearing of thc count's nppca! against
ajjndgmeut obtained in the tribunal
of commerce in favor of the banker,
M. Davillier. The judgment In question ordered Count de Castellane to
pay bills amounting to 2,000,03(1
francs drawn by the count in favor of

Beilin, Dec. .'>.���On the resumption
of the tariff debate in the Reichtag,
Count Von Powadowky-Wehner, secretary of the interior, took up the cudgel in defense of the bill. The secretary contended that Germany was
largely dependant on h��r export trade,
which must therefore be protected.
Tho United States had introduced pro
tective rates not only against Germany, but against the world in the
interests o f American finance and
American industry. It was impossible lo maintain a free trade basis in

Ont of the 000 odd soldiers and
officers who aro to make up the third
Canadian contingent 70 of them will
be recruited in llritish Columbia and
ten of these in Nelson. The force
will probably be made up as follows
One lieut.-col , one major, second in
command; one adjutant, one quartermaster, one medical officer, one
veterinary officer,one aoting sergeant-
major, one quarter-master-sergeant,
oue Hcrgcunt and cook, sixteen privates,two clerks,two orderlies, twelve
batmen, fonr companies each consisting ot one captain, live subalterns,
one color-sergeant, five sergeants,one
farrier sergeant, four shoeing smiths,
one saddler, six corporals, four lance
corporals, two buglers, and 118 privates, total of all ranks, 030. Out of
this number four or five of the officers
should be selected from British
Columbia, besides the 70 enlisted men.
The preference is to be given, it Is
understood, to those who have seen
previous service in South Africa, and
in this city five who have previously
fought against the Iioers have signified their desire to again servo the
empire. The rate of pay for privates
is 28 cents per day from tbe time of
enlistment to date ot embarkation at
Halifax and $1.20 per day after that
The men who go this time will
understand better than did their predecessors that they havo bard campaigning before them and will,
therefore, be better prepared for the
actualities of war. They go under
different conditions from what the
other contingents did. Then thc
empire_was .thought to be in danger,
not from tbe'Boers, but from the intervention of some of the nations
hostile to the British, and the people
of Canada were in a fever heat of
patriotism, and showed the depth of
their feeling. Now that the danger
from tbis source is over and that the
war has resolved itself to a mere
mathematical proposition the view
taken of the situation is different
The spirit of patriotism, of imperialism, is just a strong as it ever was,
but us tho danger line has been passed
there is not the same call for it. The
mother conntry needs a few troops to
take tho place and to assist those who
have become wearied by long and ex-
hanstiiig service under trying oon-
ditions, and Canada is dutifully furnishing them. A correspondent of thc
London Times aptly describes the
condition of affairs in South Africa
as follows: "It would seem that not
even after two years has it been
properly grasped at home that this
war is unique of its kind. Not only
docs it entail the subjugation of a
white race, characterized for centuries by a dogged perseverance akin
to unreasoning obstinacy and determined to continue the struggle so
long as a man, a rifle, and a round of
ammunition remain; but it is being
waged over a country of which thc
difficulties arising from tho immense
distances and the peculiar configuration cannot be adequately realized by
European mind."
The burdens, therefore, that have
been thrown upon the Mother Country
by the war are immense and it is but
just and proper that Canada should
help her put down these stubborn
people. It should not take long to
accomplish the task. That the end is
near is shown by the following, recently pointed out by Mr.    firoderick :
(1) In October, 1000,the railway wan
cut 82 times; ln October, 1001, not at
(2) The Boers accounted for nre
MS,000, of whom nearly half have been
taken during tbe twelve nionih-
under Lord Kitchener's command.
(8) FreBh troops are to be sent out
to infuse renewed energy into tbe
task of wearing down tbe enemy.
Tbe latter clause in tbe statement
of Mr. Broderick ia tbe real reason
why Canada has been asked to send a
third contingent. It seems certain
that tbis will be tbe last call that
will be made on us for troops for
South Afrioa for the beginning of the
end is apparent and Canada will be
entitled to a fair share of the honor
when the struggle is brought to an
and, for her sons have shown their

A meeting of the Mine Owner's
Association is to be held in this city
tomorrow for the purpose of considering
the question of the erection of a lead
refinery. In the call issued for the
meeting it is stated tbat something
definite will be laid before it. The
Minor has taken pains sinco the announcement of thu meeting was
made to compile from the government
reports the quanities of iead sent out
of thc country and the amounts of
manufactured products of lead
brought in. In the month of September the lead products cost the people
of Canada a little over $100,000 and
had the mannfactnrers paid three cents
a pound for tbe lead it would have
oost 878,000 and this would leave them
a turnover of $22,000 or $204,000 a year.
A business that handles over a quarter
of a million dollars a year is one of
no small consequence. Then there is
the bounty of Sr> per ton on refined
lead which is quite an item in favor
of the home refinery. It would be
possible for the mine owners, the
refinery owners ar-d the manufac-
tuers of the products of lead to combine tbeir interests, so that when
the time was ripe for it the tariff on
lead and its products could be advanced to such figures that tbey would
havo complete control of the Canadian
markets. In doing this tbey would
be but imitating the example set
them by the lead trust of the United
States. This would relieve the silver-
lead mine owners of the present
dependent position in which they find
themselves���completely at tbe mercy
of the lead trust. Tbe fust step
toward breaking the Bhaokles which
bind tbem is the erection of thc lead
refinery. The building of the white
lead works, shot tower, lead pipe
works, etc., are mere details which
will follow the refinery as certain as
the night does the day.
Tho erection of tho refinery is not
Buch a stupenduous matter and only
involves the expenditure of about

that it will pay when he examines

What would this sum bo If it would
rejuvenate and place on a firm and
profitable basis forever the silver-lead

of such great importance? As an

only way to resume is to resume. So

in a few years hence. -If the parties
who so far have had thc matter in

with the work let the mine owners interested take huld and pneh it through
to a successful completion. When
the magnitude ot the interests concerned are so vory great and the
good which is to be derived by those
interests so large, one would think
that there should not be but little
trouble in raising tbe money needed;
in fact, none of the parties to tbe
enterprise need actually put np any
money. With the bonus promised and
a pledging of personnl credit there
need not Do tho slightest difficulty so
far as securing the money needed is
concerned. The scheme is ono in

big profit, and why Micro should be

There is nothing liko Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in tbe worst
cases.   It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,
111..says: "Yonrtrial bottle of Asthmalene received iu good condition, I oannot
tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
yenrs. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you bad overapoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial acted like a
charm.   Send me a full size bottle.

troubles whioh combine with Asthma.
Its success is asbonisbiug and wonderful.

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of doty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been nfflcted with spasmodic asthma for th^ past 12 yenrs. Having exhausted
my own skill as well aa many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmaleno.
My wife commenced takiDg it nbout tho first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one boltle her Asthma has disappeared
and Bhe is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflioted with this distressing disease.
Yours respeotfully, O. D. PHELPtt, M. D.

Tlio attendance at the Nelson public
schools for the month of November
shows a slight increase but might be
soma higher as to average. After
New Year the actual average of attendance will have a cash value to the
oity, as the provincial government
apportions its grant to the city for
schools on that, the rest of the expenses of tho sohools having to be
made up by the city. During the
month of November the number of
pupils attending was 293, whereas the
average was only 242.32, which is
just S2 per cent. In a city where the
sidewalks arc good, as in Nelson, and
no pupil has very far to go to schoo
there is no reason why the average
should not be 95 or 90. Next year this
increase will mean that the oity
would receive from the provincial
government $510 more than it would

that 11 was the heaviest, shell fire he
had ever seen. Only five men were
lost during the retreat. At one point
a bridge had to be crossed and here
the enemy concentrated his lire. The
retreat was under command of General Alderson and was conducted In a
masterly manner. Gen. Alderson
has the credit of being the senior
mounted infantry officer of the British serivce. On the day of the retirement the Jobannesurg fort was taken
by a rush made by a command of Ian
tlamilton with a loss of 90 men and
the Boers retired to the north.
Tho Orange Free State clasp was for
the engagements of Zand river and
Vet river in which the Canadian contingent played an important part.
The Cape Colony clasp was for ihe
suppression of the rebellion in the
Prciska division. Although there
was no hard fighting it played an important part in the campaign by
keeping Roberts' communications intact to the south and so enabled him
to act with a free hand in tho north,
in the Orange Free State.
It is expected that the Cape Colony
government will also give those who
took part in the suppression of the
". Preiskn rebellion meduls for their
services. The operations in Prieska
were conducted under the command
of Lord Kitohener.

Work is to be started on the clear

creek again as soon as thc weather
will permit by the city. Tho C. P.
R. also intends having considerable
work done on the channel above the

laundry that was undermined by the
high water of last spring still hangs
over the creek, and the owners will
probably be ordered to remove it as
in case of another high water it
might be swept down and form a jam

How to Properly Feed the Body.
Physicians nowadays realize how
necessary it is that the food contain
the right elements that the body requires to rebuild Itself, and replace
tlie loss that occurs each from activity and energy.
If one lifts an arm, tbat means the
expenditure of a small amount of
energy, and the burning up, so to
speak, of certain deposits from tho
lood. This means certain loss, and
this loss must bo made up each day
from food. If the food does not contain the things required, nature hoists
a flag of distress; aches, ails, sickness
of some sort sets in, meaning that
there !s something lacking lu thc
The reason physicians so generally
advise the use of Grape-Nuts Breakfast Food is that they know from
what it Is made and what it contains.
The medical journals iu various parts
of the world have Riven the analysis.
The famous "London Lancet" went
so far as to make a very un refill
analysis by its own chemist. Its re
marks are worth repeating.
"Thc preparatory process undoubt
cdly converts the food constituents
into a much more digestible condition
than iu the raw cereals, This is evident from the remarkable solubility of
thc preparation. No less than one
half of it being soluable in water.
The soluable portion contains chiefly
dextrion and no starch. According to
our analysis the following Is the
Moisture  h.02 per cent
Mineral   matter  2.01    "    ���'
Fat   1.60    "    "
Proteids 15.00    "    "
Soluable Carbohydrates..411.40    "    "
Unaltered carbohydrates^ U7   "    "
The features worthy of note in this
analysis are the excellent proportion
of proteids and mineral matter, and
soluable carbohydrates.
The mineral matter Is rich phosphoric acid. Our analysis shows that
it is a nutrituve of hign order, since
it contains the constituents of a complete food in Ihe right proportions,
and in an easily assimilable state."
Notice the carbohydrate total is
about 75 per cent. These produce
energy and warmth. The phosphoric
acid in the mineral matter comes, as
do all of the other ingredients, from
thc field grain, net ono article being
introduced as a drug.
Physicians know that the soft matter in the brain and nerve centers
throughout tbe body aro made from
tho elements of albumen acted upon
by phosphate of potash. Albumen is
a very common article in almost
every food, but phosphate of potish
does not exist in all foods, nor is it
found in easily digestible form always. However, in (Irape-Nnts these
elements exist, and are presented to
the body ln an easily digestible form,
and explain the reason why uners feel
the new spring of life, the brain and
nerve power increase, after they have
been UBing 3rape-Nuts for a time.
There Is a reason for it. The doctors
know it, therefore they prescribe

Litigation Regarding Internal Affiirs
> of Wallace-Miller Co.
Chief Justice McColl held a session
of the Supreme court yesterday when
thc only case on trial was that of
George vs. the Wallace-Miller compauy and the individual shareholders
of tho company except of course himself. From the pleadings it appears
that in August, 1808, the plaintiff,
Patrick W. George, bought an interest
in thc business of Wnllacu-Miller and
an incorporated company was formed.
Thc plaintiff had contributed $12,902
while the other assets of the company
were valued at 827,000. Business was
carried on at at Nelson and Greenwood. He became dissatisfied and in
July of this yoar tried to arrange
terms upon which ho could withdraw
from Ihe firm. He made an offer for
the Greenwood business which was
not in- ���rpinl. He also suggested an
arbitration but nothing came of this
either, and later he commenced this
action to enforce a settlement. In
his statement of claim he applies
among other things fcr an accounting
from the incorporation of the company, a full statement of the assets of
Ihe company, tho apointment of receiver, the removal of the present directors and for other orders and
decrees subsidiary to these. The
eases had not proceeded far when his
lordship suggested an adjournment to
see if a settlement could not be
reached. The continuance of the trial,
he said, could do the business no good
and as it now was a profitable, one it
would be better for all tbo litigants
to reach an agreement if possible.
An adjournment for this purpose was
consequently made.
Imperial   vs.   Valparaiso   was   ad
journed to next court.

Another ridiculous food fad bas been
branded by the most competent
authorities. They have dispelled thc
silly notion that one kind of food is
needed for brain, another for muscles,
and still another for bones. A correct diet will not only nourish a particular part of the body, but it will
sustain every other part. Yet, however good your food mny be, its nutriment is destroyed by indigestion cr
dypepsia. You must prepare for their
ppearance or prevent their coming by
aking regular doses of Green's August
Flower, the lavonte medicine of the
healthy millions. A few doses aids
digestion, stimulates the liver to
hea I thy action, purifies the blood, and
makes you feel bnoyaut and vigorous.
