London, April 8.��� The correspondent of tho Standard at Klerksdorp,
TrunBvaal colony has cabled a graphic
account of the battle at Dornbalt farm
on March 31 in whien the British lost
tbree officers and twenty-four men and
had sixteen officers and 131 men
wounded while the Biers had 131 men
hilled or wounded,
A small foice of Canadians and
Mou: ted infantry, the correspondent
says, were opposed by sevenfold tbeir
mum ber. Six hundred llocis charged
confidently calling upon ihcm to surrender. LientenaDt Carrutbers, of
tbe Canadians, sprang to his leet and
exclaiming that he wonld not surrender, 6hot the foremost Boer with
his revolver at a distance of 15 paces.
The Canadians had no cover except
the short grass. Lying prone upon
the ground they fired steadily and
forced the Iloers to seek the shelter ol
a screen of treos. Many of the lioers
climbed these trees and fired down on
the Canadians. The latter kept the
enemy at bay for two hours. When all
but 15 of tbo Canadian troops were
killed or wounded, the Boers ventured
another rush and captured the handful
ol survivors. Lieut. Carruthers was
the only Uritish officer who was not
seriously wounded.
Ho had several flesh wounds but
refused to go to a hospital.

London, April 8.���A spocial order
was issued today to the customs staffs
of all the porta ol the United Kingdom
forbidding them to issue the u��ual
order for entry to all vessels oarrying
free goods. This applies not only to
timber but to all cargoes at present
free of duty.
The customs authorities in London
are very reticent on the subject ot this
comprehensive regulation but the general character of tbe order is believed
to be intended to erisuic secrecy regarding tbe intentions of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sir Michael
Hicks-Beach. That his budget proposals will be usually important, is
indicated by tlie fact announced in tbe
Houso of Commons this afterncon by
Ihe goveinment leader, A. J. Balfour,
that the budget will occupy tbe nouse
both Thursday and Friday.
Mr.llalfour's announcement that the
budget will be debated for two oars
is regarded as indenting a very controversial budget. All kinds of rumors
are afloat but according to the best
opinions the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sir Michael IlicKs-Bcach,
will not depart from his traditional
free trade policy.
The war expenditure is eMimutcd ��t
��140,000,000 as against ��00,000,000 last
year, while the grant to the new
South Africa colonies is only ��j,800,-
000 as against ��0,000,000 last year.
Altogether Sir Michael Hicks-Beach
has to meet an estimated expenditure of
��171,000,000 as against ��197,000,000
last yoar. It is expected that the
chancellor will endeavor to raise ��0,-
000,000 by additional taxation, bringing the revenue, roughly speaking up
to ��150,000,000 and he will provide the
remainder by a loan, for the interest
on wnich he may posBibly tax the
resources of the Transaval. A persistent rumor is current here that besides
timber, iron ore will also be taxed.

The two factors which will result in

a resolution was nnaniomnsly adopted
in   favor   oi   the   government taking

S��n   ca i��   and   Great  Bntata
���d to nationalize th�� land telegraphs
of the Dominion, the charges for the
hansmis.i0T. of messages in both instances   to   be   reduced to the   actual
operating cost.
In .peaking on this sublectHIr Sand-
ford Pluming. K.C.M.G., at the meet-
log of the Press Association   in  Winnipeg in March, brought out some in-
Xing   facts.      -Sir   landlord   first
alluded to the faet that   Marconi   ha
startled the world   by   his  successful
effort   to   transmit    electrical    wave
signals across the Atlantic.    Marconi,
when on this side of tie Atlantic, the
sneaker stated,   entertained no fear ol
failure;   be   was   full of hope tbat he
would   prove   his. invention   to be  a
commercial success, and he  expressed
the belief that he   would   be  able to
transmit   messages across tbe Atlantic
��Itb ample profit   at one or two cents
a word.     It  appears,   however,   that
there   is   a   Marconi   company   to be
,eckoned   with, and in financial matters   the   distinguished   inventor  has
not all bis own way.     Instead   ol.the
very   low   rate expected the   Marconi
company olaimB 10 cents per   word for
the transmission of ordinary message-
Take., by itself a reduction of frcm I
cents to 10 cents per word is   a   great
step in tbe right   direction,    and   tbe
arrangement   entered iuto by the gov-
ernment to effeot, If possilbe, the  desired end, may be   regarded   as  to  a
Urge extent, s-itisfaclory and wise.  A
reduction Of 00   per   cent   on   present
eharges.assuining that the experiments
and tri.ils.soon to be undertaken. BUC-
ceed.will provo a great public benefit
and its inlluenee for good   will be felt
in many ways. __,._._.
Sir Sandfurd then stated that he
had pointed ont in his letter to the
postmaster-general in January last
that a state-owned cable conld
transmittrana-Atlantlo messages lor
five cents a word and that there
would be a prospect of a further re-
dutlon if the trnllic increased,. In his
letter to Mr. Mulock he furnished
evidence enough tu show that there is
sollicicnt business in sight to keep a
government owned   Atlantic cable m
operation for 12 hours per dav. If,
however, a cable were operated for 21
hours a day at two cents a word he
holds, would be sufficient with whioh
to pay ope.ating expenses and even
fixed charges. As an Atlantic cable
owned by the government would b\
lowering Ibe charges s0 per cent.interfere more or less with the existing
cable it is suggested, so that the companies' business may be interfered
with as little as possible, it might be
desirable to reuuee the charges by
gradual process, Ue would begin with
a rate ot live cents a word. Uy a
lowering from 28 cent, to 6 cents he
holds that cable correspondence would
beuome popularized and the volume of
business would be mfflahmt to make
the operation profitable.
In sneaking In support of the
nationalizing cf the land telegraph*
of the Dominion ho pointed to the pos-
tsl telegraph system of the I niteo
Kingdom as a mod:! to be imitated II
Its essential feature, for tho reason
that it ia B remarkable public service,
unparalleled in any part of tbo world.
The telegraph Hnei ��cro owned lithe first place by railways and other
private ccri)orhlions..-iTU��y.were ex-
appropriated on the authority of an
act of parliament, and have since been
oon trolled and extenoed, lor a period
of over 30 years, by the government .
liy means of the state owned telegraph system, any person in the three
Kindgoms oan send to any other person, however remote, a message of 12
wolds for six pence, and eacb additional word fcr one half penny.
The porposal to have this system, as
iar as practicable and applicable,
introduced in r ,inula, of course, with
sucb modifications as experience has
proved to be advisable, aud to suit tbe
conditions of tbe country, seems to Sir
Bandford to be expedient auu proper.
In arguing further for state   ownership of the land lines   be   states   that
Canada   is   the   only   eountry   in the
British empire where the   telegraphic
service is not owned by the state and,
witb the exception   of Canada and the
United States, every   civilized   nation
bas taken tbe telegraph   lines   out  of
private     Lands,   and   in     these   two
countries telegraph rates   are twice as
high as tbey are   eleswhere.     To  the
objection tbat the telegraph branch of
the Uiitish   postal   department shows
a deficiency he replies   that   last year
there   was   a deficiency of ��353,210 in
the earnings  oi   that   branch.     Witb
respect to the cause of it he quotes the
postmaster-general.     His   report   for
1��95 and tbe preceding documents show
that   for the previous 25 years, during
which period   the telegraphs had been
under government control,tbe receipts
exceeded the expenditures   by a   total
of ��1,70.1,000, equal to an annual av-er-
age surplus of ��71,800.     But this does
not   include   the   interest fur the purchase money of tbe   original   lines,   a
charge which iu recent year is included and is far higher tban   it  ought to
The department also pays for messengers to deliver telegrams three
miles from the receiving office and it
foregoes earnings of about ��80.000 a
year by transmitting railway telegrams tree ol charge. This is because
several of the railways had conceded
to them when tha lines were taken
over for 30 years the right to free
transmission of all their telegrams
and these have increased out ol all
proportion to the growth of public
But tbo matter which most seriouslv
affects the receipts is the extremely
low ano unremnnerative rates charged
for press despatches. Tbe oharge for
press telegrams is the lowest in the
orld. Tbe rate for public telegrams
is a hall penny a word and the
press telegrams are sent lor 12 words
per half penny. He would make all
charges for telegraphic service.alike
and charge the press tbe   same  as the
He submitted a recapitulation and
asked the members of tbe Canadian
l'ress association how long the present
state of affairs should coutinue:
(1) Canada remains the only
eountry in the British empire where
the     telegraph   service   is   not   state
(2) With two single exceptions,
Canada aud the United States, the
teleeraph service ol evety civilized
nation on the face of the globe is
controlled by tbe state.
(3) In Canada and the United
States, the charges for the transmission of telegraphio massages are practically double tho rates charged in all
other civilized   countries.
Sir Sandford concludes by pointing
out how state owned land and submarine lines would have a most beneficial effect in binding tbe British empire more closely than ever together
and th?t it would stimulate the growing spirit of imperialism

The Uritish Culumbia Mining Record
in its last issue discunsc�� the Companies Aet of British Columbia, as it
says in a tontativo way, taking for
'.est the remarks on that subject In
Tlie Miner ot March 8. No very definite suggest ion is made tbouph from
the tone of the article it is evident
that] some matvrial changes in tlic
act are necessary.
The act as it now stands is burdened witli conditions and regulations
whicb have been found irksome in
their operation, and this is particularly so as regards mining companies.
The provision lor the issue of mining
company stoct at a discount as fully
paid is a provision that has assisted
mining in that it bas, nt least, it-
moved a doubt whieh existed under
the aet that ol 1897 superseded, but it
is iu f'e condition tbat the trouble
arises. No possible advantage can
arise from liling with the registrar
general the list erf shareholders, so far
as those doing businoss is concerned,
for the reason that a creditor cannot
bold one of them tor any uupaid balance on his stock, though it may at
times be useful and necessary for a
shareholder to know how many shares
the directors,lor instance, bold. This
could easily be required to be furnished without putting the secretary
In the work of making out lists that
in somo instance contain several hundred names.
The penalties under the act Could
easily he made more reasonable,say in
the way ol giving^only those directly
interested the right to enforce them j
and only to dale from the time tbat
the damage began to be saffered.
Much more data and statistics are
now required than there is any practical use for.
What   is   desired   is an act that   is
understandable,   not complicated, and
that   gives   security   to   creditor and
shareholder, and   procures   houesty of
management.     MiniDg companies, no
more than individuals,    care to   make
the internal atfairs of their companies
public   property and as the aet stands
tbeie   is   no way for the workmen   or
the trader to know   whether   it is sale
ior him to   accept work, or to   supply j
goods,     unless       he     makes     those
inquiries   into   the   financial position
of   tbe   company.      These    inquiries
would   not    be    welcomed    by     tne
directors   and     it     is    impracticable
that   they   should   bo made lor  every
small transaction.      When no liabllty
attaches to the individual shareholder
tbo only  alternative   for   the  person
extending   the OTidIt is to make rigid
inquiry   iuto   the nature of tbe credit
he is extending       Liability   exending
to the director,   as was   urged by Tlie
Miner, would give the  desired protection to all.     The responsibility   thus
incurred would lead   to moru   careful
management   and   would protect   the
shareholders  who would thus be   less
liable   to have   their property encumbered without their knowledge,for the
piling up of debts would cease as soon
as  tbe   companies'   money   was  expended.
The Companies' act, as it relates to
mining companies, could be very
materially simplified and bo made
more workable. The form of requirements (jr registration could bo mado
briefer, the statutory articles of association could be made to conform
more nearly to those that are commonly adopted by companies and all
companies should be required to conform to thofe articles, the foes could
ho lesBentd, tho provision for the
furnishing of Information to shareholders and creditors could be made
less cumbersome, penalties could be
made more conformable to the damage
suffered from non-compliance with
the act and greater security could be
given   to  creditors  and  alinreholders
by increasing tbe responsibility of the
Provision for the enforcement of the
requirements of the act and for the
cancellation of charters of companies
which have fallen by tbo wayside
would also help to keop things running smoothly.

\     MINING NEWS,     J
A. Klockman, who returned to Spokane on Monday from a meeting of
the Idaho-Continental Mining Co.,
held in Dulutb, said to a Spukesman-
Review reporter: "We have several
plans in view. It is probable that the
Ureat Northern will build a line to
the mine from Port Hill, branching
off from the Kootouai Valley line.
In case that does not materialize
there is a strong probability that the
stockholders of the Idaho-Continental
Co., will build a road themselves.
It is certain, howevei, that the road
will be built this summer." The
mines of the Continental Co, are
located near Port Hill, Idaho.
Superintendent Parker has about 40
men at work on the North .Star in
East Kootenay. A promising strike
was recently made.

Borrowed a Seal Garment For Trip
The following paragraph appeared
in Thursday's Kootenaiau : Maggie
Brown, who lives on African avenue,
reported to the police on Tuesday
morning that her diamonds bad been
stolen the night before. Chief Cody
went to the house and arrested Charles
Johnston and a girl by the name of
Teddy Vaughn. After lodging them
in jail he went back to the house and
searched the room that had been occupied by Miss Vaughan.but not a spark
could be found. The easy living
couple appeared before Justice Carney
in the afternoon, on a charge of being
inmates of a house of joy and weie
fined $15 or 10 duys. Sentence was
suspended, and yesterday morning
the couple hied themselves to new
diamond   fields.
The Nelson police were not
notified by those of Kaslo that
the couple referred to had come
to Nelson, hut Saturday afternoon
Chief Jarvis received a letter fiom a
solicitor in Kaslo notifying him and
asking him to keep an eye on them
for any trace of the diamonds. A
search failed to get any trace of the
pair for a while, but at 7 o'clock a
woman from Lake streat reported that
the Vaughan woman had that morning
borrowed a sealskin coat worth $300
and other articles ot apparel from her
and had not been seen since. It was
found that sho had taken the train for
Spokane immediately aftor borrowing
tne articles. A message was sent to
the police in Spokane who found and
arrested her. The complainant decided
not to prosecute, so tnat the Spokane
police seaured the coat and other
articles and Bent them back by express, but no trace of the diamonds
was found. The man in the case evidently did not stop in Nelson but kept
on travelling.

the food does not supply the right
materia! to rebuild the brain. You
cannot use the brain without breaking
down small particles every day and
you ennnot rebuild unless tn ' food

material, and that is albumen ard
phosphate of potash. Not such as you
get from the druggist but such as
Nature stores in certain kinds of food.
Grape-Nuts contains these particles
and well defined results can be obtained from using the toothsome,
delicious fcod.
A brain worker whoso nntno can be

got in a desperate oondition through
excessive mental work and lack of
proper food. I was finally compelled
to abandon all business and leek absolute qniet and rest in the country

physician for several months, but it
seemed my food did not rebuild the

Down at the ferry I purchased an
evening Journal and my attention
was attracted to the headlines of a
Grape-Nuts advertisement which road,
'Food Curo Nature's Way.' I read it
carefully and decided to give Grape-
Nuts a trial, so next mowing I went
in on the new food and in two weeks'
time gained 10 pounds nnd felt like a

A freight train 011 the Crow's Nest
railway was wrecked Sunday afternoon just west ef Wardner. A freight
train with two locomotives, west
bound, ran over a cow. The flrst
locomotive was not derailed but tbe
second was snd also lour of the
freight cars,loaded with merchandise.
The fireman was badly injured. The
engineer caught hold of the hood of
the cab as the locomotlvo turned over
and escaped with a few slight bruises.
The brakeman kept running backward as the cars left the rails and
saved himself from being hurt as the
rear cars were not thrown from the
track. It was not until 4 o'clock on
Monday morning that the wreck was
cleared up so that the west bound
passenger could puss. Thc wreckod
cars were burned as they were smashed beyond further usefulness while
the loe'omotive was on its back with
its wheels in tho air.
Chris Foley, is iu the city en route
lor the Labor convention at Kamloops. Mr. Foley in speaking about
tho effect of the work of the Federal
Chinese Commission, of wnich he was
a member, said it was reasonably certain that parliament would put
into law the recommendation of the
commission that a heavy head tax be
put into effect to stop thc tide of
Chinese immigration which is and lias
so long been pouring into tlie province. MessrB. Foley and Clute recommended in the report that a head tax
of $500 be placed on eacb Chinese
entering British Columbia, while Mr.
Munn, the third commissioner.reported in favor of n tax of $300. Mr. Foley
was not certain which of theso would
be adopted by parliament but he felt
reasonably certain that one or tho
other would ho and he thought it
would be effective in keeping out the
Chinese. He did not think that anything would be done in tbe matter of
Japanese immigration. j

That Became a Fact and Pleases Many
��� Bald People.
A. R. Lewis, M.D , in a lengthy
article in the columns of lhe American
Journal of Health, says concerning
hair: "Its deterioration is a constant source of worriment to humanity, consequently bald people are
readily deceived by 'fake' hair restoratives. The wisn that a ha r preparation will 'fill the bill' ia father to tbe
fancy that it is likely to do so. A
rare case in point is that of Newbro's
Herpicide, which actually does 'fill
the bill.' It destroys the parasite that
attacks the hair root, and prevents
dandruff, falling hair and   baldness."
