CENSUS TAKERS AT WORK
ENUMERATORS   IN   NELSON    DID
A GOOD DAY'S WORK YESTERDAY.
THEY   ENCOUNTER     LITTLE   OR
NO DIFFICULTY  IN OBTAINING  INFORMATION.
LADY COOK'S
TROUBLES
Asks That the Body of Sir
Francis Cook Be Exhumed.
False Stories   Charge  Her
With Having Caused
His Death.
Comber, Ont., April 4.���The bidy of
Fred Palmerston, a young Englishman residing iu Tilbury, was found
lying beside the Michigan Cent'-al
railway track, about two miles east of
thib place last night, with the throat
cut. The young man had deliberately committed suicide by cutting his
throat with a jack-knife, which he
had clasped in his hand when the
body was found.
Toronto, April 4.���Hon. McMillan,
lieutenant-governor of Manitoba, is
here to consult Premier Ross and Attorney-General Gibson, regarding the
constitutionality of the Manitoba railway bill. The bill deals with the
rights   of   Manitoba   to   fix  rates on
The census enumerators did a good
day's work yesterday. Eucli man
scheduled from 50 to 70 names at
which rate the census for the city
should be completed within three
w eks. It has been demonstrated 1
that the various questions to be asked are frequently very difficult to answer. The printed forms have not
spaces for the description of squatters
and in other respects the information
easily obtainable in an older section
such as central Ontario and Quebec is
more or less of a nuisance in this
district.
The enumerators encountered no
difficulty in obtaining information
wherever houses were found occupied.
In some instances shacks were found
padlocked and it was impossible to
judge from the surroundings whether
or not they were occupied at all. In
no case did an enumerator have to
resort to threats to enforce his queries. In fact the only incident approaching this at all was that of an
enumerator who called on two old
ladies residing on the hill. Thev replied eagerly to the long list of questions propounded and when the
blanks were filled proceed to furnish
tbe official with a quantity of miscellaneous information regarding themselves, their complaints, their views
on the city council, what thought
they of the west and all about their
sons and tbeir d.ughteis-in-law and
tbe daughters-in-law's offspring. The
official protested that he did not need
these items of information in his
business, whereupon the ladies grew
wratliy and relieved their feelings by
remarking tbat the census wouldn't
be of much service to the public if
these classes of information were
omitted.
At another west end residence a
mother was found surrounded by six
children. The enumerator started to
take the birthplaces of the various
members and was moie than astonished to find that no two of them had
been born in tho same place. The
eldest was a native of Coolgardic.
Australia. The second was born at
another point in Australia, and the
others each saw the light in various
points of tho world, the last being a
native of Nelson. In the same section
of the city was a prosperous ranch,
details of which look up a large section of the agricultural schedule. The
man of the house was totally ignorant, however, of the identity of the
parties who owned the ground. It
' had suited him when he wanted a spot
to settle and he was there and doing
' well. The enumerator entered the
family as squatters and placed his
own valuation on the ground and
: buildings.
Only one Chinaman was scheduled
yesterday, lie described himself as a
fire-worshipper from some unspeakable district in the Flowery Kingdom.
I When the Chin.se sections are run
across it is safe to predict that the
progress will be slower.
j The average time spent in each
houso by tha enumerators is half an
hour. As the men became more familiar with their duties this period is
likely to be somewhat shortened.
London, April 4.---The Echo says It
understands that owing to certain
unpleasant rumors Lady Tennessee
Cook, widow of Sir Francis Cook, has
applied to the home secretary to have
the body of Sir Francis Cook exhuni
ed. Sir Francis Cook died on Febru
ary 17. Friends of Lady Cook say
that false stories have been circulated
by a person not related to Sir Fran
cis, but who was disappointed at not
being remembered in the will. Lady
Cook desires that the exact cause of
her husband's death, which was
senile decay, (he was 84 years old at
time of his death) shall be especially
certified to, so that hereafter in the
event of, her death, nothing can be
alleged against her. Tne relations
between Lady Cook and her late husband's family are quite cordial.
Lady Cook, who is living in Kensington, London, made the following
statement to a correspondent of the
Associated Press tonight: "Since
tho death of my husband, there has
come to my knowledge a very thoroughly laid plan, concerted before his
death, to blackmail his reputation.
It was to be put into execution when
he died. Some parties to tlie conspiracy expected to secure Irirge large
amounts of money during his life.
His somewhat sudden death prevented
a realization of the hope. The conspiracy reached a culmination by the
circulation of rumors that Sir Francis
died au unnatural death and owed his
demise to me, the conspirators hoping
in this fashion to blackmail me.
"Had I not been a woman of worldwide reputation, I could have afforded
to let these calumnies die. Mv own
health also is extremely poor. Should
I die now, these lies might go on forever. I have therefore resolved to refute them now.
"I purpose to go to the full limit of
an autopsy, if necessary, in order that
the world may know how baseless
these stories are. Harrowing as it is,
I shall not flinch. My husband was
beloved by me, nnd I by him; and
these iniquitous slanderers shall be
stamped out if it costs me all the
courage and wealth I have in tbe
world. In this, I have the full cooperation of all my step-children."
FRANCE ENCROACHING.
The Republic Thought to Be Menacing British Interests.
London, April 5.���The Times lias received the following from its correspondent in Wellington, N. Z.,
"France after establishing a naval
station in the Pacific and increasing
her warships to five within a few
weeks, is now engaged in strengthening her land defences. This action is
regarded as menacing British interests
in tho South Pacific."
WHY THE
FLEET LEFT
Russian Foreign Office Tells
Why Russian Fleet Left
Toulon.
The Excuse Is Weak and Will
Not Be Generally Accepted.
Paris, April 4.���An official of the
foreign office informed a representative of the Associated Press that the
sensation that was being created by
the departure of the Russian waiships
from Toulon Is quite artifical. It was
never intended that the whole Russian
squadron should remain there during
the Franco-Italian festivities, and it
was recognized that the presence of a
third party would tend to check the
expression of feeling, while at the
sttiue time it might invest the events
at Toulon in the minds of others with
an Importance tbey do not possess.
The czar wishes that the Russian navy
should greet President Loubet at Toulon and it will be represented by at
least two warships which will stay
there during the festivities, in which
their officers Will participate. A
Russian personage in the city who
was Interviewed on the subject spoke
in the same strain, explaining that
had the Russian officers and warships
been in too great numbers it might
have diverted to themselves u part of
the demonstrative friendliness whicli
the Italians came to seek In France.
He said that there had been lack of
discretion on the part of the Russian
consul at Toulon and declared that
the Russian squadron had never intruded to take part iu ihe fetes.
He admits that the departure ot the
Russian warships was hastened in order to cut short, the reports in certain Paris papers, which had been
attributing undue significance to the
arrival of the Russian squadron at the
present juncture.
It is understood that the Russian
minister of war, General Katourak-
pine reckons upon the possibility of
having to despatch an army corps
southward into Korea.
KAISER'S ARMED GUARD.
Berlin, April 4.���The members of
tlie emperor's bodyguard, besides a
special corps of bicyclists, who relieve
each other,are now armed with lances
when accompanying his majesty on
horseback. The Evening Vessiche
Zeitung demands to know what justifies the Kaiser in showing such a
fear of the people. It compares his
precautions with those taken by the
czar.
PROCESSIONS PROHIBITED.
Madrid, April 4.���All the processions which had been prepared for
Holy Week at Granada have been prohibited nnd such processions will
probaby be forbidden at Madrid, Barcelona and elsewheie.
MONTREAL DEFEATED.

SOLDIERS ARE SCRAPPING.
Foreign Troops Quarrelling And Serious Trouble Expected.
London, April fi.���The Daily Chronicle publishes the following despatch
from Berlin: "Count Von Waldersee
has sent an urgent telegram to Emperor William imploring him to endeavor to hasten tbe negotiations for
the withdrawal of the allied tioops
on the grounds that it is Impossible
to prevent quarrels between the soldiers of the different nationalities
whicli might at any moment lead to
serious trouble."
the United States und Canada will
take effect on that day and negotiations are now in progress with tlie islands mentioned which are expected
to be Consummated in time for all
these arrangements to be effected simultaneously. This menus a reduction
on all money order business between
the United Stutes, Canada, the Philippines, of from one per cent, the international rate, which now obtains to
three-fourths of one per cent, which
is the domestic rate.

SERIOUS AFFLICTION.
Paris, Apiil 4.���There is no doubt
tbat the allliction from which the
premier is suffering is more serious
than shown by the medical bulletin
and that the trouble is only temporarily held in check by the operation.

subject of a visit to the United States,
but he would undertake it if his
strength permitted and if he could
hope for some advantage to the cause

London, April n.���The Reuter Telegram company has received the following dispatch from Pekin dated April

churian convention appears to be of
a rather temporizing nature leaving
the matter still open to future discussion."

ADDRESS BY MRS. REED, COMMISSIONER   OF  SOCIAL WORK
DEPARTMENT.
THE   ORGANIZATION     SUPPOTIT:
NO LESS   THAN   FOUR HUN-
1JRED INSTITUTIONS.
The Salvation army bai racks was
crowded last night, the occasion being
the visit of Lieut.-Col. (Mrs.) Read,
commissioner of the social work department of the army in Canada
Rev. J. H. White, pastor of the Methodist church,occupied tbe chair. Colonel Read's address was a genuine
treat. She has a remarkable fund of
information on the subject of social
work done by the army and a manner
of ii'laliug facts that appeals to tin-
interest and sympathy of the bearer.
Th6 nearest home established by
the army for furthering their social
work is at Vancouver, but the institution has already accomplished much
in the direction of rescue work.
Touching on the general work, Colonel Rend said that the army supported over 400 institutions, devoted to
men's shelters, rescue homes for women, prison work, etc. It was found
that convicts and other fallen beings
required something more than the
story of the gospel. Tbeir permanent
reformation, as well as that of women
could not be Seoured unless they were
given a helping and encouraging
hand; a change of environment, in
fact a helping hand oil the new pathway of life.
"What," said she, "could we do
when they came to the penitent form'.'
If a girl has lost her character by
stepping aside from purity and righteousness, who will take her In? Thus
you see we had a plain duty to perform." The army now directs a total of nearly ninety rescue homes, sixteen of which were established in tlie
Dominion. The numbers that have
been rescued and given a now start
had demonstrated the need of such
homes. It was a rude but appalling
fact that the United States alone had
350,000 fallen women, of whom 50,000
died every year without love or care,
without fear or hope of the future. It
grievedjjher, she suid, to admit that
despite the relative advantages of education,the evil existed and nourished
in Canada.
"This great crime," shu added dramatically, "is not always hidden under the gilded veneer of society. It
pollutes many classes, lurking iu so-
called respectable homes, or flaunting
itself in public places."
Continuing, she said the inmates in
the Canadian rescue homes during the
paBt two years had exceeded between
seven and eight hundred. It was indeed consoling that between eighty
and ninety per cent, of these women
had been restored to lives of purity
and honest industry. The work
throughout was carried out on certain
well defined and fundamental principles. Kindness was tin- dominant idea
in the work. The lecturer went on
to relate many instanceB where such
treatment had been a great factor in
redeeming the fallen and directing
them in the path of grace and salvation. She looked forward to the tune
when many of these homes would become self-supporting. The earnings
of tho homes where the inmates wero
taught some useful calling, last year
had reached fS,000.    It was an   invar-
Mr. Rudd of the Silver King
Mine Has No End of
Troubles.
An Inland Revenue Inspector
Thought Him a Moonshine
Whisky Man.
Continued on Fifth Page.
Mr. II. V. Rudd, storekeeper of the
Silver King mine, suffers from liver
complaint and therein lies a tale.
Like all sufferers Mr. Rudd is constantly on the lookout for relief. Ho
has tried doctors and patent medicines, patent medicines and doctors,
has felt improved at times ami has
become worse again. Recently he
was advised to quench his thirst with
distilled water alone. This was to
be a sure remedy and in order to test
its efficacy he sent to Chicago for n
small tin water boiler to which was
attached a worm for distilling purposes.
With the order for the distilling
apparatus Mr. Rudd also enclosed an
order for two leather conts, ono for a
foreman at the mine and onn for Engineer Ross. He oidrcd also a small
sword, the latter to be presented to
one of the small hoys at the mine
who has developed warlike tendencies. Tlie goods were to he sent forward by express in one package and
Mr. Rudd hud arranged for their entry through the customs here.
But here, in true dime novel style,
comes in the sleuth. He comes in the
person of Inspector Gill, of Ills Majesty's inland revenue department.
Like all good sleuths Mr. Gill suspects
everybody and everything. He is always "noseing" around, seeking
whom he may devour and ever intent
upon preventing anyone from defrauding his royal master of any
portion of his just revenue. At the
time of the arrival in Nelson of Mr.
Rudd's liver complaint remedy, the
leatliei coats and the toy sword Inspector Gill happened to be looking
about in this <-i.y. He looked with
suspicion upon Mr. Rudd's package
and it was ordered opened.
And wbut a find it was! Here wa��
a clue which would lead to the arrest
of moonshiners! There was the distilling worm, and leather coats usually worn by men who are Compelled
to live in the mountains duiing the
cold season of the year. There was
nothing suspicious, it is true, about
the toy sword, but that was evidently
thrown in merely afl u blind. The inspector, it is said, became excited. Upon his shoulders would fall the honor
of capturing the first moonshine
Whiskey men found In the interior of
British Columbia, He was "vre ot
bis prey nnd that no alarm might be
given the matter wns kept as quiet as
possible. Not a whisper of it should
reuch the newspapers or anyone else
who might give the secret away.
About this time Mr.Rudd's liver began to trouble him again and be wits
thirsting for distilled water. He Inquired if his package had arrived and
was told that it had but had been
confiscated jy the Inspector on the
ground that it was to be used in the
illegitimate manufacture of whiskey.
Mr. Rudd laughed. Then he becan e
mad. Then he laughed again. He
wanted to know if they thought he
wns a moonshiner; if they thought
the whiskey he got up at the mine
wasn't good enough and cheap enough
for him. He told them his liver was
troubling him and he wanted whut
they were pleased to term the "moonshine outfit" in orderjto secure relief.
He told them he didn't know anything about making whiskey and
didn't intend to learn now. Then
his liver took another kink in itself
and he got made again. Hut the best
he got wns his freedom for they didn't
arrest him on the charge of being a
moonshiner.
That was about a week ago. Mr.
Rudd's liver is still out of order. Engineer Robs aud the mine foreman are
wearing their old leather coats.
The small boy is still using a sword
whittled out of wood, and His Majesty, King Edward VII., has in confiscation what one of his servants
believes, or believed at least, to be a
moonshine outfit,

legislation to this end has ever been
_.lu. .1. .'be la ' 'a:- !s alio.'
tho unne as iu other portions of the
British Empire, pcihaps a littlo higher, but not much. The total of taxes
paid by the New* Zealander are however, heavy to a degree, :n fact they
are taxed higher than in any other
portion of the British Empire. At the
same time the country is one of the
most productive and most delightful
to live in that could be imagined.
UNIONISM   RUN MAD.
The   statement   is   very   often   put
forward in this country when matters
affecting   laboi 's interests are up   for
discussion   that   conditions   in    New
Zealand   are well-nigh   perfect,   that
there   have been   introduced   in   thnt
country such laws as tend to the raiti
atlon of   many   evils  which   exist in
Canada and that all who dwell in that
fair land are consequently  contented
prosperous   and     happy.    But    there
is another side to the   picture, and   it
is shown to be a very unpleasant   one
to contemplate by   Mr. Thomas Flem
ing of the firm of Fleming A Gilkison
millers  and   grain   merchants,   with
houses at Invergargill, Gove and Win-
ton,   New   Zealand.    This  gentleman
sayB that while New Zealand is one of
the  fairest lands   under  the  British
flag, the lawmakers   are   doing   their
utmost to kill it.   He has spent something like forty years in New Zealand
and   is   now   on u   visit,   to   Canada.
While he dearly loves the country and
thinks it one of the most  beautiful as
well as productive   bits of the Hritish
Empire, he is   utterly out of  patience
with the men who have   produced the
laws under which they are  obliged to
live and do   business.    The amount of
it seems to be   that   New   Zealand   is
lawed   to   death.    Men are compelled
to quit work at a stated time���by law.
Men cannot work on   Wednesday   afternoon, the law says   they must not.
If a   man   wants a loaf  of   bread   he
cannot buy   it   on   Wednesday   afternoon; if the baker sells   it he is fined
���the law so orders.   If you employ a
man or a boy more   than   eight hours
a day, the law steps in   and says that
it must not be.    No matter how pushed your factory   is   with   orders,   the
employes  must not   work over   eight
hours per day���no,   Dot   if your business goes to smash as a   consequence.
This is the law.    You are a manufacturer   and   desire labor.    Three   men
apply   for   work.    Two   of them   are
known   to   be inferior workmen,   and
the third   is   a  first-class   man.    The
two men, however, are  members of   a
union, and   the   law   says  that   they
must   have   the first   opportuuitv,   so
you are compelled to hire I. .rio
workman because he belongs to a union, and miss the opportunity of engaging the desirable man because he
does not belong to tbe union. If you
persist in engaging the non-union man
while union men are available���no
matter how inferior the latter may bo
���you are fined. It is the law. If you
wish a carpenter, a painter, a mason or in fact an artisan of ary description yoia have no right to pay
him according to your own and perhaps his estimate of the service performed. There iB a prescribed rate
of wage and you must pay according
to It. The legislature has kindly fixed this. You have no say in thu matter���so reads the law. Mr. Fleming
states that this class legislation���for
he declares it amounts to nothing
more���rolled into powei on the top
wave of trade unionism some twelve
years ago, and the circumstance is
one which all business men In the
country have deeply regretted ever
since. The question has become so
euvolved and has so hampered business that the whole country is now
suffering from it, and while New
Zealand is today one of the most productive countries on the face of the
earth and capable of a large export
trade in manufactured goods as well
as raw materials, it is doing little beyond feeding and clothing itself. It
would be just as fair and equitable to
enact laws to compel people to sell
tbeir products at a stated price us to
hamper the manufacturer und other
producers with the present, laws.
Asked if there was any chance for
overthrowing the present condition
of affairB, Mr. Fleming said that he
could see but little in the immediate
future. Everyone had a vote in New
Zealand. The servant girl bad the
same right of franchise as did her
master. In fuct, everyone who was
over twenty-one years of age and out
of gaol could go to the polls and vote.
For this reason the legislation enacted waa to a great degree class legislation, and the moneyed  class, being in
its provisions as all the matters coming from the hand of Hon. Mr. Wells.

The announcement that Sir Henri
Joly's health is such as to make a vacation and journey to California imperative will be received with unlver-
nsl regret. No man in any part of
Canada has ever achieved such general
popularity in such a short time.���

THE CENSUS.
To the people of Canada the Dominion's decennial stocktaking is particularly interesting, as the expectation
is held by many that a very large Increase will be Bhown in the population. Home hold the idea that it will
be demonstrated that there are todny
in Canada six million souls, but that
is rather an extravagant estimate.
Snch an increase would be much
greater than the two preceding decades, the numbers for which were as

An increase in numbers of 1,000,701,
or just double the inciease of the
previous decade, would be required
to make the population six millions,

Canada's population has been growing in a very satisfac��ory manner,
particularly during very recent years.

Since the government, however,
bas decided, for whatever reason, to
give the members an opportunity of
sounding their constituents, the last
excuse for granting the .barter to

from every town and city in the district culling loudly for a competitive

in respect to railways in this province. --Rossland Miner.

PROTECT  YOUR   BUSINESS
It is unfortunate that we should be
under the necessity of thus doubting
the good luith of tlie government, but
there is no other recourse open to ns
at the present time. This feeling of
doubt is shared all over the Province,
and tlie premier's breacn of faith is
largely responsible for this uncomfortable and undesirable state of
affairs. The promise he gave to reconstruct the cabinet has not been
kept, and so long as he retains as his
colleagues those ministers whom he
promised to supplant by others more
acceptable to the people, just so long
will the government be viewed with
distrust and misgiviig, Tbat this
sense of distrust is not unwarranted
is unfortunately too eleurly demonstrated by the attitude of the government on the railway question,by their
unpreparedness with public business,
and by their scheme to increase the
even   .  tax.���Kamloops Sentinel.
The Ontario government has a pro
per appreciation of the value of the
mining industry to the province and
will vote JO, 000 annually in aid of the
school of mines. Our own provincial
government might make a note of
this.
What will prove to be a very notable event Is the dinner to be given
on April 17th by Justice Taseheruu,
of the supreme court of Quebec, to all
surviving members of provincial par
llaments of 18(55 which voted for confederation.
There will hardly be two opinions
about the wisdom of the government's
action in proposing a resolution to
place a clause in all charters granted
by the house giving the government
control of rates on ull lines constructed in the province.
It was a very happy idea to arrange
that the Duke of York should present
the South African war medals while
on his tour through Camula. The
medals will be doubly treasured by
the recipients from the fact that they
will be given by royal hands.
A matter of considerable public interest is the announcement that postal
orders to and from the United States
will now be issued at a trifling rate

from one per cent to three-tenths of

Hritish Columbia is the most important factor in the welfare of the province, aud that this industry is cup-
ahle of almost unlimited expansion.
Few people, however, realize to
what an extent the country is suffering from the opeiation of causes
which can be removed.
The suhject iB a wide one. It can
only bo dealt with satit-fuctorily by
experts in various lines, suuh as political economists, minion men and politicians, who havo taken the pains to
study the question not only theoretically, but by practical observations.

Fact No. 4.���The mining industry,
instead of thriving, as il ought to
do with such magnificent opportunities as we know it possesses, is steadily and rapidly diminishing. This is
a disagreeable conclusion to arrive at,

pt-iity we ought to enjoy unless we
aro willing to look facts in the face,
���ml aet_to work to remove the causes
which hinder our progress.

Accounts for the year ending 3(lth

Claims were staked on Red mountain,
we find the receipts from free minors'
certificates were as follows:
1800 9 12,801
1801     17,903
1893     27.808
1893      23,015

1890   100,081
K      1897   139.750
1898    155,104
These -guies   teach   us thai the In-
teiest taken by prospectors and others
in securing   mining claims   increased |
rapidly   every   year from 1890 to  189(1'
With a single   diminuation in 1802-93, I
probably   caused by the silver depres
Hion in the Slocan   ut that   time,   and
that in 1890 the number of certificates
issued were   three times as   many   as
in 1895.    Hut in 1897-98 a sudden falling off, amounting to   nearly   $30,000
was experienced.
SMlt will be remembered that in the
year 1807 the Companies Act was
passed, repealing the former acts under which mining companies hud been
Incorporated, at a moderate cost, and
lntioducing numerous provisions
which added expense to the management of existing companies, and imposed very serious additional burdens
on all future companies.
The intention of the act was merit-
orioiiF,to prevent fraudulent flotations
���nd to protect' shareholders, and at
tbe same time to enrich the treasury.
\-The effect waB to suddenly stop the
operations of many people of small
means who were endeavoring���sume
Mtaestly and some, perhaps, dishonestly���to develop properties of more or
less merit.
The provisions of the act with re-
(fard to repressing fraudulent and negligent practices, were very valuable;
but it is idle to suppose thut fraud
can be suppressed by adding 8500
more or less to thu expense of incorporating a company.
Whether   the act has   succeeded   in
^extirpating fraud is more than duuht-
Kful.    It    has    certainly     obliterated

THE   MINING   INDUSTRY
Continued from Third Page.
individually, would have largely assisted in the development of the
country.
But, it may he said, the above figures show a considerable increase in
1898 over those of 18117.
I fear that the apparent increase
was due to a far different cause than,
any increase in the mining   industry.
In 18U7 an amendment was made to
the mineral act, imposing an additional burden of $.r>0 lor a free miners
certificate for a company having a.
nominal capital of 9100,000 or less,
and 8100 for a company certificate in
case the nominal capital was over
*100,000.
Companies which were then in existence were obliged to pay the $100
promptly or lose their propi I o :.
prosperous paying mining company
this imposition would bu unimportant, but to a few prospectors who had
banded together and incorporated a,
comphiiy for the development of their
property it meant much.
Let me otter another illustration
from the returns of the mining recorder at Kossland, which may be
taken, probably, as a sample of what
is going on throughout the mining-
districts. In 1896 tbe number of free
miners' certificates issued was 4,200.
In 1807 the number increased to 4,(1!) .
In 1807 the ordinary free miners'
certificates suddenly dropped to 8,890,
but by reason of the increased imposition on companies, 127 of these
special company licenses were taken
out, together with many substituted
certificates, whicli swelled the total
receipts accordingly.
In 18tit) the returns from Rossland
showed the issuance of only 1,1107
personal free miners' certificates, and
92 certificates for companies. Finally,
in 1900, the returns fiom Hosslanil
show only 1,3117 personal certificates
and HO certificates to companies. A
few substituted certificates were issued, but these would not materially
alter the position. Only one conclusion .an be drawn from the above
figures. Prospectors and companies
alike have been losing heart in the
greatest industry which Hritish Columbia posse.BiH, and have been diverting their energies to other countries.   I do not think the abolition of
fees from miners working in (by
employment) the mines would materially alter the above conclusion.
If anyone could furnish a statement showing even one-half of the
money which capitalists and shareholders have sunk in British Columbia during the past six years, I do
not doubt the figures would be amazingly large. And what has been the
return? How many companies have
been able to reach a dividend-paying stage'.' And how much have
they paid in proportion to the
amount expended by them?
If all thiB disappointment were a
physical necessity we should indeed
be in a sorry plight. But I have a
strong impression that the present
retrogression is due to causes which
are not dicffiult to see, and which
can be removed. Tho expense of
mining is abnormally high. Free
miners' certificates, excessive fees for
.poiaiing coi.. .nics, custom;
duties which alone increase the cost
of operation by at least ~. per cent.,
income taxes, revenue taxes, timber royalties, taxes on the output of
ore, all combine to render mining on
this side of the line fully SO per cent,
higher than it is in the United States.
As a remedy for this state of
affairs some have suggested a direct
bounty by the government in favor
ot the development of our mines.
The remedy which I would suggest
would be to deal with the subject
matter as an infant industry, requiring all the fostering care which the
govrnment can bestow upon it. Instead of increasing the imposts which
at present overburden it, remove
them, at least for a period of a.few
years, until we can Bhow to the outside world a fair array of dividend-
paying mines which will encourage
people to invest their money in tho
industry. Obliterate the present statuary enactments which compel mine
owners to disclose their whole business
to the public, and thereby occasion
fluctuations in the stock market
which aie as in j minus as they are
needless. I feel assured that if this
course were adopted by the government, and wc were able to proclaim
our country wide open for mining,
tbe direct loss which the treasury
would sustain for the first year or two
would be regained tenfold by the
indirect profit from an increasing
and prosperous community, and with
this returning prosperity  there would
be a rapid cessation of labor difficulties and other grievances which are
the natural outcome of depression in
business.

The statistics of the last four years
show an ominious decrease in the following statistics:
1. Free Miners' Certificates.���Indicating the lessening of activity.
' 2. C���tificatcs of Annual Assessment Work.���Showing abandonment
of claims and the failure to locate
new ones.
8, Transfers of Mining Interests.���
Showing that activity in this line has
become almost paralyzed.
4. Decrease in the Number of Companies Operating.���Showing that the
number of ventures which fail is not
being covered as it should in a new
country by the new enterprises
started.

iable rule that no ghl wus permitted
to leave the homes without learning
some means of livelihood. As illustrating the power of kindness and
symputhy the leeturer mentioned how
one woman, who hud led a life of sin
for twenty yeurs, had, ufter seven
yean1 oeaseleia persuasion by ariny
workers, reformed. The dominant Idea
always borne in mind wus |thut there
could be no reformation without regeneration   through   the   power   and
grace of ,iesus.
(ol. Head then dealt with the work
accomplished in looking after homeless waifs und uhnmloned children.
In Canada alone not less than four
hundred were being looked ufter. In
many    .uses   the little ones were   the
uiT-Kpi!ng of depraved criminals and
Inebriates, The League of Mercy
now had lutl workers whose principal
task was to visit the prisons und hospitals, bearing messages of love, hope
and kindness. Through this agency
uinnyj permanent reformations had
been accomplished even among hardened criminals. She quoted the testimony of the jailer at Hamilton, Ont.,
that tho remarkuDle decrease of crime
in that city could only be ascribed to
thi.laborH of the army. Not only the
county prisons, but the penitentiaries
wore regularly visited. The services
held on these occasions wero largely
attended. When tlie work commenced
in the Central prison there was not
one saved soul among the inmates.
Now the conversions had exceeded 100
und It wus noteworthy that of tlie^re-
foiined and discharged criminals not
une hud lapsed.

It is a mystery why women endure
llackuche, Headache, Nervousness,
Sleeplessness, Melancholy, Fainting

proved that Electric Bitters will
quickly cure such troubles. "I suffered for yeurB with kidney trouble."
writes Mrs. Phebo Cherley. of Peterson, la., "and a lame back pained
me so I could not dress myself, but
Electric Bitters wholly cured me, and,
although 73 years old, I now urn able

"I find Grape-Nuts very helpful to a
man troubled with the cares and wor-
rlment of business," says Louis Fink,
Jr., of 59 S 4th street, Philadelphia.
At the time I commenced using the
food 1 was very weak from want of
properly selected food.
The help I received from the powerful food elements in Orape Nuts was
indeed wonderful. I have come to
use the food regularly and do not
think a breakfast complete without
it." There's a reason why this food
gives one the feeling of new vitality
