in tbe mines of Republic and vicinity,
which are waiting our arrival to be
shipped. We will have out opening
ceremonies and excursion from (Irand

CAN FEED A NATION.
D. R. Ker Speaus of the Grain Growing Resources of the West.
I). R. Ker, of Victoria, gcnPrnl
manager of the Brackman and Ker
Milling company- ha* been in the cily
fcr two days returning fr im a trip to
Edmonton, where the c impaoy has a
mill. He comes back more than ever
an enthusiast in the future ot the
Canadian northwest. Everywhere
along the line ol the Calgary and
Edmonton railway settlers effects are
on all the railway sidings and more
are coming in daily. Most of them
are from the western United States,
men accustomed to fanning and
exactly the kind who will malic a success of life in a new country. Though
most of them are American citizen*
they intend to make Canada their
home aud are ready to take the oath
of alleg'anee as socn as thoy can
qualify. The first large immigration
to that part of the country look place
last year and those who went in then
were so successful that they advised
their friends to come also. The cattle
country gives way to agricltura! about
75 miles north cf Calgary and from
there on tbe area being brought under
cultivation ie year by year increasing
and eventually there will be millions
of acres that will be brought undei
the plough. Somo years ago there
was occasionally the drawoaok ol
early frosts but with cultivation these
seem to disappear, but at no time
does anyone there remember a year in
which the crops were a total failure.
Mr.Ker predicts that within twelve or
fifteen years there will be enough
grain produced in the Canadian northwest and Manitoba to supply all that
is nee'ed (of Great Britain. As to
the area over which wheat can be
raised with profit tbat oan be spoken
of by tbe millions of acres. As an
evidence of tbis he inent'oned thnt
the Hudson's Bay company was this
winter hauling in on sleighs the machinery for a fifty-barrel Hour mill to
bo erected at Fort Vermilion, which
is 500 miles north of Calgary. This
would not be done by those familial
with the country unless there was
wheat there to   be ground.
Tbo capacity of the Brackman and
Ker mill for making rolled oatB at
Edmonton iB 50 tons a day. This
output is consumed chiefly in British
Columbia to as far west as Kamloops,
the Kootenays and in the North vest
as far east as Regina. Then was
more produced last year than was disposed of in that territory and the
coraoany Bent a few carloads to Montroal. This is the (list time that
rolled nats haB been sent to Eastern
Canada. The Imperial government
bought quite a laige quantity of oats
in the vicinity of Edmonton for South
Africa and paid a price of about 2s
oents a bushel tor them. This meiint
thu distribution of a largo amount of
money among the farmers.
Speaking of Ue tourist association
that has been formud in Nelson, Mr.
Ker said that in Vletoira quite a
large sum of money had neon subscribed, rooms were being opened In
tho city and a lecturer was to go on
the road. He would distribute literature and deliver lecturos illustrated bv
stsreopticon views. This tourist trade
was well worth cultivating and it was
surprising how much money the
travellers left behind them.

A Brilliant Dash by Which
100 Boers Were Captured.
Pretoria. Marcli 28.���From the first
prisoners captnied.it was learned that
General Delarey blmsell was outside
the actual cordon in the engagement
of Mareti 84,when the British captured
over 100 prisoners and recovered threo
guns and two pcins poms. Delarey
had slept some distance westward, but
Llebenber?, Kemp and other Boer
commanders were inside the column
troops. Tiie first body, consisting of
about BOO Boots, sighted at 10 o'clock
iu thc morning of March 84, retreated
at full speed, making for a gap be-
ween the Uritish columns. A race
for the opening ensued. Tne British
mounted infantry which had already
ridden upwards of .",(] iniles. pressed
their tired horses until they gave out,
when the men jumped off and raced
forward on foot Some ot the mounted
men, however, were able lo gallrp
right into the gap just ahead of the
Boers, whom they met with a warm
fire. These troops also succeeded
in driving back another body of 300
Boers who were forced to desert lhe
guns thoy had captured, from the
Vonilonop convoy in February. The
Iloers tried tn ge through several openings, but on each occasion were forced
to uouble back until they ultimately
found a gap and passed out of the
Uritish lines within s|;lit ol Klerks-
dorp. Night fell befoie tbe pursuing
columns could overtske the doers.
F'ive Canadians who foil out of their
column and tried to woik their way
back were surrounded by a lluer foico
and made a splendid oe'ence, but
finally seeing their case wan hopeless,
foui of them surrendered, Thc fifth,
however, indignantly refused to thiow
down his arms, and continued a single
handed light until he was killed.
This was regarded as one oi the must
interesting incidents of the day.
An Instance of tbe resource!ilnesa of
tie Boers was given by Liebenberg
and several hundred men. Taking
advantage of the confusion of the drive
he and his followers assumed a formation similar to that of a British
iluinn and moving close to ore of the
numerous gaps in tbe llritish lines,
succeeded in reaching the opening
before llieir ruse was ileti cted and tbey
got safely away.
Tho gunn oaplursd from Vondonop's
convoy were biilliuutly recaptured by
the Scottish Hor.o, who charged up to
the muzzles of the artillery and lodu
the Boer gunners off their feet belore
the latter bud a chance to lire.

RAILWAY SUBSIDIES
Premier Dunfmuir has signed the
agreement with Mackenzie and M��nn
for the construction of the railway
across British Columbia, Under this
agieeraent the railway is to recoive a
large subsidy in money and land ior
each milo of road ouslructcd.
The agreement will uojv be submitted to the legislature for ratification. It is hoped that thu members
will amend it so us to cut down, at
least,the land subsidy. The system of
giving away tlio public laud by the
wholesale ns has beeu the practice is
vicious in the extreme and is calculated to retard the development of the
country. There was a timo whon subsidies were necessary to seenre the
construction of railways, but that day
is past. Hereafter such railways as
are constructed should bo built without subsidies. Railways are no more
outitled to bonuses than any other
form of enterprise. In this connection
the following decision of Mr. Justice
Miller of the United States Supreme
court is interesting:
"Ol all the powers conferred upon
government that of taxation is most
liable to abuse. . . To lay with one
hand the power of government on the
property of citizens and witli the
other to bestow it upon favored individuals to aid private enterprises and
build up private fortunes is none tht
less robbery because it is done under
the ionus of law und is called taxation. This is not legislation. It is a
decree under legislative forms. Nor
is it taxation. 'A tax' says Webster's
Dictionary 'is a rate oi snm of money
assessed on tbe person or property of a
citizen by the governmont for the use
of the nation or state. Taxes are burdens or charges imposed by the legislature upon persons or property to
raise money fur public purposes.' . .
. . We have established, no think,
beyond cavil that there can be no lawful tax which is not laid for a public
purpose. . . But in the case before
ub, in which towns ure authorized to
contribute aid by way of taxation to
any clasvs of manufacture, there is do
difficulty in holding that this is not
Buch a public purpose as we have heen
considering. If it be said that a
benefit lesults to the local public of a
town by establishing manufactures,
tne same muy bo said ol any other
business or pursuit which employs
capital or labor. Thc merchant tlie
mechanic, thu inn-kcepe, the hanker,
the builder, the steamboat-owner, are
equally promoters of the public good,
and equally deserving if the aid of
tho citizens by forced contribution
No line can be ilruwn in favor of tlie
manufacturer which would not open
tho eofl'ors' of the publio tiensury to
the Importunities of two-thirds of tlm
business men ol the city or town."
GOOD NE VVS FROM LONDON.
News comes from London of a cheering character to tbo people of Rossland nnd of the district. It is reported
from there that Hon. C.II. Mackintosh
has succeeded even better with the
Giant and other properties which be
took there to plnce than he did
with the British America corporation.
Governor Mackintosh induced the
llritish America corporation to invest
about (8,000,000 in the puicliaee of
mines and mining properties in the
Rosslnnd oamp, nud probably a rail-
lion nud n half additional in their
development and equipment. Had it
not been for these investments the
Rossland   camp  would  not be nearly
ill the same advanced condition as lt
Is at present. Should it be truo that
Mr. Mackintosh Has succeeded in promoting another company like the
British America corporation and if it
hs�� anything like the resources which
the B. A. C. possessed when it started then Rossland will take another
long  step forward,   Mr.   Mackintosh
Bhould not, however, put his eggs all
in one basket; in other wordB, he
should try some of the other camps as
well as Rossland when it comes to
making purchases of the raining properties for the new   corporation.
The section around Ymir has probably a number of properties which if
developed would be as good aB the
Ymir, which today is probably the
most profitable mine in tbe Kootenays. If he wishes gold-copper prop
erties on the noith hauk of the Kootenay there are some fine showings
which are quite as wide and as rich
looking as tbe surface croppings of
the larger mines of the Rossland
camp. These when opened should
oiove quite as profitable as any of the
gold copper mines of Kootonay and
Valo. Besides there is tbe Slocan,
East Kootenay, Ainsworth and other
places, and ho can place a portion
of the lands with wbich he is to be
entrusted in any one of these districts
to advantage to his principals and to
the benefit of his own credit and repu
tation. Thu governor should show
more broadness of spirit in his
investments.
COUCH MOST MAGNIFICENT.
There is something sublime in tlie
with of Cecil Rhodes to have his eter
nal resting place in the Matoppo hills
in Rhodesia. It reveals that there
was more sentiment in tbe uncrowned
king of South Africa than those who
had business transactions with him,
and who knew what a firm grasp and
what a close knowledge he had of
things material, would suspect. The
tnasoleum in which his mortal remains will sleep will he located in tho
beautifful section which he aided
materially in bringing under British
control aud it is fitting that he should
tako his long rest suiid the scene
of his most patriotic und unselfish
achievements. Could one wish, as
William Cullen Bryant put? it,"cooch
more maguicfieut." Aroond him will
grow up in time one of the most
prosperous) of the British Colonies,
filled witb brave men and fait
women, wbo will deem it a loving
duty to honor the name and the resting plaoe of the departed statesman
and patriot, who thought more of the
interest ot his country than he did
of his own affairs.
There is something of a parallel to
Mr. Rhodes design in the burial placj
selected by Alaric.conquerer of Roma,
and king ot tho Visigoths, though the
latter's idea is more barbaric. Alaric,
it will.be remembered,directed that hiB
followers turn a mountain stream
from its course and in the center of
the channel dig a'grave and to place
bis body therein. Then tbey were
told to turn the toirential waters back
Into thejoriginal channel sc tbat they
would flow forever over bis grave.
His directions were carried out and
the conqueror has slept all tne centuries sinoe the year 410 amid the
wild music of the torrent as it sweeps
down the steep mountain sides on its
wav to the sea.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
At Loganspori, Ind., the city charge
for lighting dwellings with eleotricity
is in no instance twenty cents per
ligbt per month,and when sixty-seven
lights are used in one house, the
oharge is only 81.20 a month���or less
than two cents per light per montn
foi all night service! And that pays
enough profit to enable the city to
have 123 arc lights without costing
the town a cent 1
Ticket scalpers, although there is no
brotherly love for them on the part of
the railway corporations, will con
tinuo to be a necessary evil in the
United States. According to a recont
decision by Judge Chytraus, of the
Supreme court of Illinois, ''howevor
reprehensible and udius to a railroad
a ticket scalper may bo there is no law
that invalidates a ticket, which other
wise is valid.because it passes through
his hands." The decision was
given in the case of Moritz llorrowitz,
who bought tickets from a scalper for
himsulf nnd wife over the Chicago
and Northern Paoific railroad.
Thoy wire not permitted to
ride on the tickets and sued for damages and the trial resulteo in thoir
favor.
Hire redistribution bill brought in
by the Dunsmuir government mav be
classed as a success, so little real
objection having been found with it.
It is a fair measure and the people
realize that the government has
striven to justly treat nil paits of the
country, says tho Slocan Drill. A
little too much weight iH perhaps
given to tho north end of the province, but there is every likelihood of
that section gaining rapidly in population in the next year or bj, I'l
tho Kooterays and Yale the situation
has been fairly canvassed and general
satisfaction given. Local objections
will arise, but in the main tbe bill is
favorably received. One gratifying
feature of the measure i-a that the
claims of the Mainland have beon
acknowledged and it given the preponderance of representation. To do
this and, at the same  time,   diminish

MINING- NEWS.     |
1*++**********************
Last summer a numbtr of likely
prospects were located on Twelve Mile
creek, and all had good exposures of
ore, says the Slocan Drill. Some have
been sold, some are under optioo, and
others have been worked by their
owners. Of tbe latter the Uappv
Medium and International claims,
owned by Fred Benson and W.llineh-
lifT, are about the most encouraging. They have sunk an inclino shaft
on the vein for 50 feet and carried ore
down from the surface, and they have
the property in fair :.l ipe for stoping
An ore bouse has been built at the
thaft and in it is slored considerable
mineral taken from the incline. Io
addition to the shaft a crosscut tunnel bas been driven 50 feet. The lead
cuts across towards Ten Milo und
wonid break over in the vicinity of
the Kalispel.
Lemon oreek made its first shipment
for the year on Saturday, when tho
Duplex, situated on tho flrst north
fork, sent out 7 tons, the oro going to
the Nelson smelter, says the Slooan
Drill. It was shipped by J. Cross aud
J. .Nathan, they having been working
the claim all winter under a lease.
The ore will run woll in gold and is
expected to net the lessees 875 per
ton. The mine is left in much better
sbope than when work commenced.
Were a wagon road built up tho first
roith fork of Lemon creek half a
dozen properties would bo enabled to
make shipments of ore.
The force on the Ottawa has been
increased. The shipments from Slocan City during the week were 127
tons. The Duplex on Lemon creek
sent 7 tons; the Arlington on Springer
creek, SO tons, and the Enterprise on
Ten Mile, 40 tons. The total shipments from Slooan City for tbe year
aggregate 1,255 tons.
Tbe Rambler-Cariboo will distribute
a aividend of one cent per share
among its stock holdors on Monday
next. Ou iho "Oth the Sunset distributed $0,000 among its shareholders,
making a total of S3C,000 up to date.
The North Star lus declared its
eighth dividend. This time it is 1 1-8
cents per share. Tbe tolnl dividends
to date aggregate $373,00(1 and there is
abont $200,000 is in the treasury of the
company.
Returns from tho shipment sent out
a month ago from tho May, un Twelve
mile, netted the owners about $75 a
ton. The ore gave 130 ozs. in silver
and $20 in gold.

COFFEE PHILOSOPHY
Don't Blame The Dootor
The most dangerous false friend is
the one that under the guise of friendship, day by day insinuates himself
into your good graces and takes ad
vantage of the association to do you
harm; that is exactly the position of
coffee. It enters your sanctum under
the guise of a waim, close friend and
slowly, day by day, works away at
your destruction.
Why this should ho no one con say,
but it ia a fact nevertheless. Hundreds of thousands aro testifying of
the terrible straits tliat coil'eo drinking has led tbem into.
In our clearer moments we know
that health, bounding, perfect Health,
brings with it the poise of nerve and
clearness of mind that makes us kings
instead of slaves, and brings a heaven
on earth to us.
Through the very perversity of mankind,showing the elements of a tangible demon, we porsist in taking into
mouth and stomach the false friend
even after wo know it is working to
throw us out of the peaceful heavou of
health, and set up within us that con
citlon of disease that tho nerve show
variously in dyspepsia, heart trouble,
kidney trouble, etc., eto,
The patient physician wbo hns, for
years, been explaining to different
people under his ouro the powerful
effects of ooffee on highly organized
persons, finally becomes a bit careless
and feels that ho can only point cut
thc facts and then let patients go
their own path. Their very perversity will make of them slaveR, and
they follow the habit with the blind,
dogged fatalism that cannot be understood.
Coffee "soaks" them certnii and
Bure, and whon they aro hit hard
enough they finally come around to
the point where they are forced to
give it np, then Postum Food Coffee
comes as a reliof in the timo nf desperate trouble. ft requires no effort
to slip off coffee drinking for well
mado Postum, aud the change in
health is something miraculous in
many cases.

OUR   METHOD   OF   DOING   BUSINESS
MOVE TO I1IUH15K LEVELS.
Jackson, Miss.,March 2S.���The flood
situation is somewhat improved today
so far as trains are concerned but
trade bas not yot been resumed from
New Orleans, Vicksburg or Meriden.
Tho flood from the upper Country is
being felt and Peril river has already
backed up to within ono hundred feet
of the old capitol. Scores of families
moved to high ground today, but so
far tber bas been no loss of life.
Wo wish to secure the services of families to do knltt ng
for us ln their homes. Our method is thei same_u adopted
In England. We are the Introducers ot this plan and the
lamest   knitting   concern  in  Canada.
iflor long experience, wo have been able to produce an
Automatic Machine by which all kinds of seamless 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. AU wo require da that
you use the machine according to directions. The Machine
being made expressly for this purpose and the operation
so   simple,   lt  cannot possibly make a mistake In Its woik.
The gnat demand now is for Ulcycle Stockings. Woodmen's Socks, and Motormen's Mittens, and as we are unable to supply the demand,  have taken this method ot a<i-
V_baM__\x^_ tVaft 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
wilh 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 wo have sale for all the knitting we can have
The price we pay for finished bicycle stockings Is $10.00
per hundred, or at the rato of 10c per pair; woodmen's
peeks. 5c, and motormen's mittens, 12c a pair. All other
work   ln   proportion  to size. ...
The machine cau be operated by any one or a family,
and at our prices any energetic family should be aide to
sustain themselves comfortably, and in time bo a source of
Independent   comfort.
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
nnd complete Instruction Guide, showing how the work is
to be done. When the samples have been finished nnd
returned to us satisfactory, we send a quantity of ��-arn,
which yon knit and return likewise when finished We
prepnj charges on all work one wny, and our workers pay
return charges. The work, as we have stated, ls simple and
rapidlv done, the machine having a capacity of ten thousand stitches a minute. We have many persons now in our
employ who can knit from twenty-five to thirty pairs of
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
$20.00 per 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, ln
order to become a member, send us this Contract Order
Form, properly signed by Ihem, and at least one good reference, and remittance accordingly, to give us tbe necessary
assurance that the quantities of valuable yarn wo may send
from time to time will not be wasted or misappropriated.
Our Interests are mutual, and this confidence must be established if we are to succeed. We gunrantee 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
