LAST PARIS
SENSATION
Unlimited    Adulteration   of
Milk Caused  Many
Deaths.
ThePreslaent Heads a League
to Prosecute Offenders
Paris, Jan. 18.���A crusade has been
started here to fight the adulteration
of Bilk, to which the great majority
of the deaths of infants is largaly
attributed. The agitation is an out-
comejof the giave concern expressed
at the depopulation of Frince. The
Matin has organized a "Citizens'"
league for the protection of human
life,"which will carry through the
prosecution of every case of milk
adulteration."
As an instance of the unscrupulous
character of thn milk adulteration it
is pointed out that a carrier was recently arrested at night time while he
was filling his can witb stagnant
water from the fountains of tbe Place
de la Concord.
The Matin today announced that
President Loubet, M. Fallieres, president of the Senate, and M.Deschamel,
president of the Chamber of Deputies,
have accepted invitations to become
patrons of the crusade.
KNOWS WHERE HE IS SAFE.
Col. Lyn eh Did Not Attempt to Reach
the House of Commons.

Lynch, the recently elected member
of the house of commons for Galway
City, who is Baid to have fought on the
aide of tbe Boers in South Africa, in
an interview with a representative of
the Associated Press today, denied
that he bad tried to go to Ireland for
the opening of parliament. Colonel
Lynch said he bad not left Paris for
the good reason tbat he appreciated
the faot that he vsould not be allowed
to roach his goal, the house of commons. He had some time ago contemplated going to tbe opening of parliament, but said, jokingly: "I did not
think then that a nation that consid
ers itself one of sportsmen would be
so unsportsmanlike as to seek to reach
me in cold blood when it might have
had me in warm blood lu the Transvaal."
Colonel Lynch added that his future
movements would be governed by the
counsel of the Irish party,in which he
has every confidence, and by tbe
wishes of his constituents He declared the stories published in the
English papers of his recent visit to
Dr. Leyds at Brussels, with whom he
was alleged to have business connections, were pure inventions. He only
passed through Brussels and has no
business relations witb Dr. Leyds of
any kind, though tbey are on friendly
terms.

to Yale.
Cambridge, Jan. 18.���Harvard lost

STANDS BY
HOME RULE
Liberal   Leader   Announces
Adherence to the Old
Policy.
London   Gossip   of   Court.
People   and   the
Boers,
JOINT CONSULS SUGGESTED.
Sweden and Norway Discussing a
Scheme For Such a Step.
Stockholm, Jan. 18.���The proposal
submitted on December 28th last by
the Swedish Foreign minister, Carl
Lagenheim, to tho Norwegian minister of State, for Ihe appointment of a
committee of two delegates each from
Sweden and Norway to consider tbe
abolition ot the present joint consular
system, has been adopted and the cm*
mittee has been appointed.
Norway advocates a complete separation In the matter of consular representation, while Swedon desires, in
tbe event of separation, that the respective consulates should be subjeot
to joint supreme control.
DIED UNDER THE KNIFE.
Lonlon,Jan.l8.-Sir Ellis Ashmead-
Bartlott  died this morning, the result
of an operation for appendicitis.
JURIS-CONSULTS WILL DECIDE.
No Opposition Expected to Panama
Land Sale.
Paris, Jan. 18.���It Is explained here
that if the sale of the property of the
Panama Canal company is concluded
juriB-consnits will be appointed to
de*ide whether a ratification by a
French tribunal is required, nr
whether the voto of a general meeting
will suffice. But in any case, it will
be a mater of form. No obstacle is
anticipated on that score.
London, Jan. 18.���The most important event of the reassembling of parliament was undoubtedly the emphatic declaration of Sir Henry Oamp-
bell-Hannerman, the Liberal leader in
the house of commons, tbat the
Liberal party is still committed to
home rule. This was so utterly at
variance with Lord Rosebery's
Chesterfield speech that it was taken
to completely nullify tbe other passages of Sir nenry's opening speech in
which he endeavored to conciliate the
Rosebery faction.
Tbe Spectator says this re-nailing of
the home rule flag to the Liberal mast
is a new and violent repudiation of
tbe imperialistic wing. Three-quarters
have taken the Hume rule matter as a
de facto bid for the support of the
Irisb party. But this does not appear
to be a prolicide contingency as John
Redmond and other leaders ot tbe
Irish Nationalists have continually
declared and proved it to be tbeir intention of fighting the home rule battle unhampered by alliances, but supporting Sir Heiiry Bannerman when
tho occasion suits them.
Dr. Leyds, tbe representative in
Europe of the Transvaal, according to
a di'jpateh from Amsterdam to
Renter's Telegram company held a
conference today with the Boer delegation at the house of Mr.Wolmarans,
at The Hague. No official statement
regarding the conference has* been
given out but there is the beet authority for asierting that it was merely a
periodical meeting. Tbe despatch
further says the reports of a strong
Boer peace movement are ridiculed by
the Boers themselves, who say that
such stoties are simply fabricated by
British agents with a view to British
publications subsequently turning
them io adavutiige in South Africa,
The Iloers deny any negotiations are
iu progress.
There was a smart military wedding
this afternoon at St. Margaret'a
ohurch, Westminster, when Capt.
Godehrey Heneage was married to
Dorothy Helyar, whose mother, now
tbe wife of Lord Saville, waa well
known In Washington 15 yeaTS ago.
King Edward Bent the bride a diamond and sapphire brooch with an
autograph letter expressing His
Majsty's good wishes.
Lord Wolseley is busily engaged on
his military history. He has nearly
completed the volume describing
Napoleon's campaign of 1796. Wolseley is also writing his own memoirs
at the conclusion of which be intends
to again take up the Life of
Marlborough.
King Edward's visit to Earl Howe
at Fenn honse, Aincr.-bam, Is proving
a brilliant social and sporting event.
The other guests include most of those
known as the inner circle, the Hon.
Goo. Keppel and Mrs. Keppel, Earl
DeGrey, the Hon. Sidney Oreville,
Lord Vsno Tempest ana Viscount
Curzon, Friday's shoot was a record
day for Penn houso, the bag being
1,203 I'hoosant, ten brace of partridge,
ten bares and 20 rabbita, Tbe King
daily uses his motor car and will
probably use it for the journey from
Penn house to Windsor on Jan. 31st,
where the Queen will join His
Majesty. She is at present at Marlborough house.
Considoiable flutter was created here
by tho announcement that King
Edward had appeared in a frock coat
with deep turned up velvet cuffs.
Hundreds of fashionables immediately rushed to tbeir tailors and ordered
similar garments in spite of tbeir ex>
traordinary novelty. Consternation
now prevails as it is learned that what
tho King wore was a frock overcoat,
on   which velvet cuffs are often worn.
' Andrew Lang joins thc long list of
crlti.'s of Kudyord Kipling's poem
The Islanders, with a scathing tlnnun-
ciation of the author's personality
Mr Lang takes the character of
Stalky and Company, generally aup
posed to be Kipling himself,and holds
him up to derision for his "unathletle
brutality "
Marie Corclli, in a letter to a paper
caps the climax on thc anti-German
feeling existing in England. This
authoress declares passionately
against the similarity of the British
army uniforms to those of the German
army. Marie Coelli adds that it is
scarcely necessary to allude to the
widespread indignation at the color
and design of the new postage stamps
which are so essentially German in
appearance.

executed by the British authorities in
South Africa for murder of John
Douglas Foster, an English lawyer,
who was on the staff of Lord Roberts

The Lord Chief Justice Baron Alvers-
ton, today, sustained the contention
of the defence of Dr. Krause that the
cbBrge of inciting to murder must
fail bb there was no evidence that the
letter in . the oase had reached
Sroeoksman; but the question of
"attempting to persuade" must go to
the jury. Dr. Kranse was found
guilty and was sentenced to two
year's imprisonment.

New British Destroyers to Make Only
25 Knots.
Glasgow, Jan. 18.��� The British government has invoked tenders on the
Clyde for the construction of ten
torpedo boat destroyers, larger and
stronger, but slower than those heretofore built. The idea of the government is that the reduction of speed of
35 knots will be more than compensated by tbe superior power, more reliability and greater coal room.

connection with tbe restoration to the
Chinese government of tbe value of
the silver bullion amounting to

been restored long ago, and, indeed,
Secretary Long had conterapla ted

Standard copper was rapidly forced
down by further large sales for for

COPPER SITUATION.
The reaction in the price of copper
has apparently set in, as the London
quotations show considerable advance. The reason for this is thought
to be an agreement between the large
producers of the metal. The price of
the metal should go steadily upwaid.
The report of James Lewis and Son of
Liverpool on copper gives a clear outline of the situation. It is aB follows:
Drastic measures have been adopted
by the directors of the Amalgamated
Copper Co. to induce olher large producers of copper to diminish tbeir
output to an extent suffleient to
equalize production with consumption
and so avoid the accummulation of
stocks We have reason to believe that
two of the largest outside producers,
with an annual prodnctioan of about
B5,000 tons, have undertaken to rcduoc
pro-rata with the Amalgamated Co.
and that efforts are boing made to
persuade, or coerce other large producers to follow their example.
That production should not be
allowed to materially exceed consumption and tbat restriction of production should not be confined to the
mines under the control of the Amalgamated Copper Co., other competing
companies benefiting from the restriction without contributing towards it,
is but reasonable. Persuasion having
appatcnly failed,the Amalgamated Co.
have tried coercion, and having thern-
Belves sold about 50,000 tons of copper���of which 35,000 tons, we understand, is to American consumers and
15,000 tons ln the form of standard on
the London market, the former with a
guarantee of a rebate should prices
be lower than 10 1-4 or 10 3-8 cents.
after the flrst of January���they have
allowed the quotation for Lake
Now York to fall to 13 cents per
lb. and of Standard in London to ��47
1U8 per ton. This appears to have
followed upon large sales of Amalgamated and Rio Tinto shares���made
during the recent fall of 60 per cent,
in the value of the former, and of 25
per cent, in the value of the latter���on
the repurchase of whieh at the decline
enormous profits must have been lea-
lized. Should a nun mil agreement be
arranged, as seems probable, for the
requisite restriction of production, we
may shortly see a return to the level
of prices maintained for the last two
years and latge profits again made
from the advance in the value of
shares which will follow upon the od
vanee ln the price of copper. It is
hardly likely thnt the chairman of the
Amalgamated Co. will submit to the
defeat of his declared policy nf maintaining copper Ht such a level as will
allow of good dividends being obtained from the mines controlled by the
company.
The sutplus stocks held by producers in the United States is understood to be About (10,000 tons. Against
this haH to bo set a reduction in the
public stooks of England and France
cf about 10,000 tons and in the stocks
held by consumers In the United
States, England, France and Germany
of probably 10,000 tuns. The total
excess of stoelm In the United States
and Europe may therefore be taken as
abuut 30,000 tons���or less than ouo
month's consumption -of which 21,000
tons in due to tbe reduced consumption of Germany in ISiOl as compared
with I'.nii). Allowing fur tho small
stocks held by smelters, teflners and
consumers in Ktiglaml and France, the
oonsuinptiun of theso two countries
has doubtless increased during the
past yoai, while it is stated on very
good authority lhat the consumption
of copper in the United States, in con
junction with Unit of iron and sleel

PROPOSED CANADIAN CANAL.
As stated by Mr. Gallihei, M. P.,
three very important subjects will
come up to be legislated upon at the
forthcoming meeting of the house of
commons. The one of these which
has been longest under discussion is
the canal by way of the Ottawa river,
Lake Nipissing and the French liver
so as to make the great lakes accessible to ocean-going vessels. In some
places the natural waterways could be
used, but for the most part a series of
locks and canals would be necessary.
The cost of this undertaking would be
large even for a oountry of the re
sources of Canada but on the other
hand the advantages would be large
Not only would all the industries of
Western Canada be assisted by the
lower freight rates that would then
be possible oo grain, ore and timber
going to the eastward but un all the
heavy merchandise imported into the
vast area that can be called tributary
tu the lakes.
No only would the Canadian producer and ooosii mer profit by any reduction in the rates of freight but the
completion of the canal would divert
through Canada a very large proportion of the carrying trade originating
in those western states from whioh
grain and mineral products, particu
larly iron, can be conveyed cheaper to
a lake port than to a point on the
Atlantic seaboard. The recent in
crease in the iron exports of tbe
United States means increased activity
among the iron mines of Lake
Superior; cheaper transportation from
Lake Superior to the seaboard ir.ny
eventually means that the manufacturing will be done nearer to the mines
than at ptesent; that instead uf the
iron ore being sent to tbe foundries
of Pennsylvania and the produce
hauled bv tail from there to deep
water, if the reduction in rates Is
snflicinnt, tbat the coal will be Mauled
to the mines and tbe manufacturing
t.o be done there, Mr. Clergue, the
genius of Sault Ste, Marie, maintains
that iron can be manufactured cheaper
there than anywhere else on the American continent. To carry those Iron
products to the markets of the world
means a very lnrge trade passing
through Canada and particularly by
way of Montreal. The vessels may not
be all British bottoms but with the
trade available the way would be
opened lor profitable investment for
much Canadian money and work for
Canadian workmen.

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
PEACE NEGOTIATIONS.
The rumored peace negotiations
again attracts more than passing at
lent ion to the war in South Africa. It
is not probable that anything will
grow out of these conferences, which
seem to have been initiated by the
Hutch premier, unless the Iloers are
willing to come to the terms desired
by Great llritain. The situation in
South Afiiea warrants the assumption
that the struggle cannot be prolonged
muoh further and a glance at the conditions will reveal this.
When Lord Roberts left the seat of
war it was generally considered tbat
while he had rendered the empire services of great value at a critical time,
yet considerable fault was found with
him for a strong spiiit of gener-
OBity, which was mistaken by the
Hutch for weakness, and which it is
claimed helped to prolong the struggle. It was, therefore, thought, that
Lord Kitchener, a man aast of a
sterner mold than "Bobs," would be
more snceessul in bringing the war to
a close.
Consideiably over a year has elapsed
since Ihe hero of Omdurman assumed
command of the army in South Africa
and s'.ill the war drags on, but lately
it looks as though the finish would
soon be at hand. A large number do
not understand thc di*Hculties which
have confronted Lord Kitchener, difficulties which lung since wonld have
completely discouraged a less stout-1
hearted and persistent soldier. At the
beginning of the wnr Ueneral Huller
and afterwards Lord Roberts had to

There is] nothing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant ^relief, even in t-ej worst
coses.   It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, o Villa Ridge,
111., says: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good condition. [ 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
years. I despaired of ever being cured. I
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you had overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial aoted like a
charm.    S��nd me a. full size bottle.

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmnlene, for the cure of ABthma. My wife has
been affiefed with spasmodic asthma for tho past 13 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 tn street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmaleno.
My wife commouced taking it about the first of November, I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently re-
oommend tho medicine to all who are alllioted with this distressing disease.

Gentlemen: I wbb troubled with Asthma for 22 years. I have tried numerous remedies, bnt they have all failed. I ran aornss your advertisement and
started with a trial bottle. I found relief at onoe. I have since purchased your
full-sized bottle, and I am ever grateful. 1 have a family of four obildren, and
for six years wns unable to work. 1 am now in the bestj/if health and am doing

during   thu forthcoming   year in con-1 entrenched force in Natal.     Owing to
peotion with the dovalopmcnt  of elci- J his fighting  the Boers   with   the  old
method of frontal attacks and other
reasonB General Duller made a failure
of his campaign and wis succeeded
by Lord Sobers. When thu lutter
took command thc Hours were in high
feather as they had succeeded in repulsing thu three columns which were
endeavoring to lieut thum back tc the
north Out of Natal, Lord Huberts
when lie took command put into effeot
the tactics which hail been successful
on manv a Held against the Afghans
and others and in a short time he won
a scries of brilliant victories ending
with tbe fall of Pretoria, the capital
of thu Transvaal,
Ooueial Buller and his successor,
Lord Roberts had beon confronted
by large bodies of well armed men
who made entrenchments aud occupied
strategic positions until they wero
driven from them. When Lord Kitchener took control the tucties of the
Boers changed and thoy became mere
guerillas. No stand was taken and
the plan h&s been to harass and attack
weak and small sections of the British
army, capture trains and wagons,
transporting supplies and n'umuui-
tion, and then to disappear as suddenly as they appeared. Besides this
the line of communication to be kept
up by Lord Kitchener was larger than
that of his predecessois. Thc line
from Capetown to Pretoria Is over
1,000   miles   in   length   and     passes
through three colonies, In which there
are a large number of the disloyal.
These conditions made the task which
Lord Kitchener is accomplishing a
difficult one but the results so far accomplished show that he Is crushing
thu life out of the resistance offered
and that tbe end seems almost in
sight. This may account tor tho
minors lu circulation concerning
peace negotiations whioh appeared in
Mm telegraphic columns of yesterday.
It is evident tbat the last hope of the
Boers has vanished.

BLACK AND RICH
Is The Way Postum Ooffee Should Be
A liquid food that will help a person
break a bad habit is worth knowing
of. Tie president of one qf the state
associations of the W.C.T.U., who
naturally does not want her name
given, writes as follows: "Whenever
I was obliged to go without coffee for
breakfast a dull, distracting headaohe
would come on before noon. I dis
covered that, in reality, tho nerves
worn orying out for their accustomed
stimulant.
At evening dinner I had tieen
taught by experience that I must re-
ruin from coffee or pass a sleepless
night. In the summer of 1000, while
visiting a physician Hnd his wife I
wns served with a most excellent
offec at their dainty an elegant table
and, upon inquiry, discovered that tho
charming beverage was Postum Pood
Coffeo, and that the family had beon
grenty benefited by leaving off coffee
and using Postum.
I was so Id love with it, and so
pleased with the glimpse of freedom
from my one bondage of habit and so
thoroughly convinced that I ought to
break with my captor, that upon my
return home I at once began the use
Postum Food Coffee and have con-
Vaccinatioii of Pupils Causes a
Lengthy Discussion.
The first meeting of the nevi school
board was held lost evening in the
office of Dr. Arthur, all the members
being present.
On motion of F. W. Swannell,
seconded by A. h. McKillop, Dr. Hall
was appointed chairman of the board
for the ensuing year. Dr. Arthur was
appointed secretary of the board, and
Messrs. Swannell and McKillop as
Ilanance committee. It was decided
that the board should meot on the Snd
and 4th Fridays of oach mouth at the
oHico of the secretary.
Mr. Annable called the attontion of
the board to the necessity of increasing the time of the noon recess, the
hour given at present not bring
sufficient to allow the scholars to go
home to get tbeir dinner and get back
to school again. After some discussion it was decided to instruct the
secretary to apply to the department
of publio instiuction to allow the
noon recess to be from 12 to 1.30, the
extra half hour being added on to the
afternoon session
The attention of the board was
called to tho notice issued by the city
health officer regarding the vaccina-
tion of the pupils attending the
schools, which was to apply on Monday, but owing to the supply of vaccine only having arrived that evening,
many of the children would be debarred from attendance.
Another noint was that in many
families where there were a number
of children lt would be quite an expense to have them all vaccinated at
once. On motion of Mr. McKillop
seconded by Mr. Annable, it was
therefore deoided that the secretary be
authorized to request the mayor to
provide vaccine and a vaccidator to be
present at the school on Monday
morning for the purpose of vaccinating, free of charge, those who have
not the proper certificates, or are nut
en the register.
It was decided to move the pupils of
the High school from the temporary
premises now occupied to the new
building on Latimer street next Saturday,
Considerable discussion followed the
arranging of the estimates of expense
for the present year. A copy of the
estimate has to be presented to the
oity council on Monday. It was arranged that the first Tuesday of each
month should be tho date for the payment of acoounts including tho salaries of teachers and others connected
with thc schcol. Payment is to be
made by���the city treasurer on receipt
of au order from the school board.
Each month the secretary of the board
will prepare a payroll which will be
given to the city treasurer, wbo will
have it signed by each one receiving
money on school accounts. This puy-
roll will then bo given back to the
board, while the city treasurer will
rotMin tho orders given bh vouohors.
Tho meeting then adjourned to next

VACANT. JUSTICESHIP.
Gossip as to Who May   Succeed  Chiel
Justice McColl.
There was considerable discussion
among lawyers and others yesterday
as to svho would fill the vacancy on
the Supreme bench made by the deatn
of Chief Justice McColl. The appoint'
ment will be made by the Dominion
government. Among the names of the
coast members of the bar mentioned
wero E. P. Davis, K. C, E. V. Bod
well, E. 0., Hon. Auiay Morrison,
and Gordon Hunter. It is doubtful if
Mr. Davis would accept for the reason
tnat be has a practice, which is said
to be vorth considerably over 120,000
a year. Mr. Bodwell up to the time
that he threw up his corporation
briefs in order to enter the race for
legislative honors was in receipt of an
income from his praotise quite 'as
large as that of Mr. Davis Both Mr.
Davis and Mr. Bodwll reeeeive about
four times as much from their practice as the salary pa id to the Bupreme
justice amounts to. Hon. Aulay
Morrison is on the right side
polities and probably would accept
the position if it was tendered to him.
Gordon Hunter is a lawyer of ability
and would make an excellent justice.
The vacant justiceship, however,
should be given to some lawyer in the
Kootenays. Recent appointments to
the bench from the bar of the coast
cities has lowered the general average
of the legal men still in practice
there, while tho growth of the business
interests of the interior of the prov
ince has drawn a preponderance of
the buttter men to the upper country
Aomng these are many eligible men
for the position. Appointments to the
bench are not always made from those
who previously sipportetd the poli'.i
cat side in power, and within the bar
of Kootenay the choice would be
wide. On the Liberal side there are
W. A. Galliher and S. S. Taylor
among those mentioned, and on the
Conservative side aro W. A. Maodoo-
aid, of Nelson, and A. II. MacNeill,
ol Rossland. The feeling is strong
that the bar nf the interior should be
recognized in making the appoint
ment.

Some ot the curlers were joking F.
A. Tamblyn yesterday that lie had
not won a game his yeai so he decided
to show tbey what iie cruld do in an
emergency. In the evening the ic
was so hoavy that no game in the
Bunyan competition was called so be
got together a rink composed of N. T.
Maeleod and J. U. Wallace, who had
seldom seen a stone before, with Stanley as a steady, tried man on whom
he oonld rely. As O'Shea was present
he was put on to lead making live to
the rink. McLaughlin was given
rink of veterans. The game was full
of enthusiasm, more of it than the
building could well contain, and the
surplus went through the atmosphere,
for several blocks in tbe vicinity. If
the night had been b-ng enough thev
would have played the regulation
twelve ends but as they had to leave
the building at midnight the game
was called otf at the end ot the sixth
end when the score stood il to 10
Tamblyn's favor though there was no
means of guessing how many more
the majority would have been had
play continued. The sides were:

ceptud. The report it is stated, is very
voluminous, going into all phases of
the question and attempting to meet
the objections that any legal complications will arise out uf tho purchase
or that there wili be any-international
difllcultics should the deal be consummated. The report was completed

THISTLES AND DANDRUFF.
An   Interesting   Parallel and a Valuable Deduction Therefrom.
Cutting down thistles no more relieves the land from thistles than does
scouring the scalp euro dandruff. In
each case permanent relief can only
come from eradicating permanently
thc cause. A germ that plows up the
scaip in searching for the hair root
where it saps the vitality, causes
dandruff, falling hair, and baldness.
If you kill that germ, you'll have no
dandruff but a luuriant suit of hair.
Newbro's Herpicide is the only hair
preparation In the world that cures
dandruff, falling hair and baldness by
killing the germ. 'Destroy the cause,
you remove the effect."
