OPPOSE THE
APPLICATION
The  City Council Takes
Hand In the Railway
Game.
Favor Investigation   Before
Gr.antlng Charter to the
Crow's Nest.
Tlie Nolson city council took n liand
in the railroad game last night by
passing a resolution recommending
the legislature to defer aetion in regard to the Crow's Nest Southern
charter until the coal supply question
could be thoroughly investigated by a
royal commission. The council was
unanimous on tho point, with the exception of Alderman Selous, who
strongly urged a change in the resolution by which the government
should be ashed to safeguard the interests of the province in respect to its
coal supply by making it a consideration in granting any charter that the
supply should be assured before any
coal waB exported. He requested to
be placed on record as opposed to the
resolution passed. All the regular
business of the meeting had been dispatched when the following motion
was introduced in neat, typewritten
shape:
"Moved by Aldermen Patterson
and Irving: Tbat, whereas, application has beeen made to the provincial
legislature for a charter for a railway from the Fernie coal fields to the
international boundary lino, and
whereas, there is a difference of opinion as to the advisability of granting
said charter at the piosent time in
view of tbe probable offect whicli the
granting of tlie said charter might
bave upon the fuel supply of the country necessary for tlie successful operation of Kootenay smelters, therefore
be il resolved that this council endorse the proposal that the provincial
legislature defer action upon said
charter until the matter has been
thoroughly investigated by a royal
commission."
In opening the discussion on the
resolution Mayor Fletcher expressed
his approval, remarking that while
it was tot desirable to shut out competition it was equally undesirable to
allow anything to be done which
would injure the country.
Alderman Selous then made his suggestion that the same end would be
secured by the government compelling
the Crow's Nest coal people to make
provision for local business before
undertaking to send coal out of the
country. He pointed out that in fairness to the communities which would
��� be benefited by railroad connection
this council Bhould not take action to
prevent the construction of the road
for the purpose of obtaining protection which could be secured otherwise.
An instance of the feeling engendered
by action of this kind was had in Nelson a few years since when the Vancouver people petitioned against the
��� granting of the Nelson & Fort Shep-
pard charter. At that'time Nelson-
, ltes felt very bitter, yet the council
'Was about to take action which was
���miliar that of Vancouver.
'The mayor's reply was that the
government should thoroughly investigate the coal supply question he-
fore placing this country in the hands
of any corporation. Personally he
Was satisfied that there was nothing
like the amount of coal available that
Was claimed in some quarters. He
had spent four months in the coal
district reporting on the conditions
and knew by examination that only a
'Oortion of the coal was of any use.
this course of a royal commission
Was more reasonable than to oppose
the granting of the charter. If tlie
applicants for the charter did not

ce in securing fuel. They had

be Michel   product had  proved a to
tal failure, in fact it   was more likely
than not to put out a lire.
The   resolution   was   then   put and
passed as stated.
The balance of the   business   docket
was aluio.it wholly of a routine nature.
Shacks and those   who   live therein
came   in for  considerable   discussion.
The mayor stated   that a crusade was
to   he Inaugurated   against  squatters
and that in this tho C. P. It. would
assist by evicting shackers from their
right of way. It was pointed out
that a number of Chinamen squeezed
out of the present depot site were locating in the city park land serosa
Cottonwood creek, where they were
clearing land. The mayor stated that
precautious would bo taken to prevent tlio celestials from cutting all
the young timber.
Tlie council decided lo lay 300 feet
of two-inch pipe to the general hospital lor the purpose of affording additional protection. Tenders for the
supply of 3,000 feet of eight inch sewer pipe were presented by II. ,1. Evans
& Co. and the II. C. Pottery company.
That of the Victoria concern was accepted, being, the lowest. C. Jisko
wicz offered to supply the city with
I'D,(Mil) hard brick at 811 per thousand
and it was decided to accept Hie offer
if tlie quality of tho brick was up to
the mark.
A. P, Flaherty, an agent for the sale
of maps, applied to the couneil for
a rebate of a transient trader's license

HIGHLAND   MINE   CLOSES
ADVERSE   CONDITIONS  PREVENT
THE   PROPERTY   FROM 1IEINO
WORKED AT A PROFIT.
INCREASED CHARGES FOR TREATMENT AND  LOW PRICE OF
LEAD ARE   REASONS.
The Highland mine at Ainswortli
has practically closed down because
tho conditions, it is claimed, prevent
the pioperty being operated profitably
at the present time. Increased
charges foi' treatment and the low
price of lead are given as reasons for
the action taken by the   management.
When seen yesterday in regard to
tho matter, E. R. Woakes, local manager of the Highland, said: "The returns from the concentrator for tho
period February 10 to March IS were,
tons crushed !.',100, concentrates yielded 280, all of which was shipped to
the Hall Bmeltcr. Owing to the continued fall in the price of lead coupled
with the increased smelting and refining charges, it lias been decided to
stop the concentrator at the end of the
present month. This means the stoppage of all stoping and tbe discharge
of about 40 miners. Work will be confined to the development of the mine
and no more ore will be shipped for
the present. The smelting and refining charges now amount to 835.25 per
ton of concentrates, and with the
price of lead down to 82.80 per hundred pounds, it is easy to figure out
that there ib nothing in lead mining
at tlie uresent time in this province.
Were tlie Highland mine situated
100 miles further south the -melting
and refining charges would not
amount to $15 per ton and thore
would be a larger margin of profit
even with lead at the present prices."
The miners who remain at tlie Highland aro those who will carry on the
system of development  decided   upon.
HADLY   INJURED.
Young Man Shot Himself Accidentally
Yesterday,
A young man named Wattio was
brought to tho general hospital yesterday from the 4 o'clock hoat suffering from a terrible injury. He had
been out shooting and was lifting his
gun from tlie row boat. As Wattio
drew the weapon toward him, it exploded and the entire charge of shot
entered his left shoulder inflicting a
horrible wound. The accident happened at Nine Mile Point and several
hours elapsed before Wattio - was
placed in the hospital. An examination of the gaping hole in his body
disclosed the fact that the shoulder
bone was hopelessly shattered and a
number cf the principal arteries of
the neck injured. Under tho circumstances it is   difficult   to   understand
London, March 18.���In the commons
today, Mr. Hugh Oakley, Arnold Foster, parliamentary secretary to the
admiralty, explained the naval proposals of the government. It was proposed to have 154,575 men available
to man the fleet, of whom 118,625
should be on the active list, 28,050 on
the royal naval reserve list and 7,300
on the royal fleet reserve   list.
'The government," he went on to
explain, "would ask for ��0,000,000 for
construction, the largest sum ever appropriated, out of which thirty-three
new vessels were to be started."
Proceeding to analyze the estimates,
Mr. Arnold Foster alluded particularly to the condemnation of the
Belleville boiler. He declared that,
even with the delays in the construction, England held preeminence in tlie
rapidity of ship building.
"The admiralty held no exaggerated notions as to die value of submarine boats," he remarked, "but we
have collected a great deal of information, which it is proposed to use to the
full value."
In tlie house of lords today, the
premier, Lord Salisbury, replying to
an inquiry on the subject of an investigation into tbe conduct of the war
in South Africa, said the government
had not made any promise to institute
investigation. He feared that. full,
just and equitable enquiry would lead
to a renewal of the same speeches and
of the regrettable discussion as occurred during the exchange of speech
between Lord Wolseiey and Lord
Lansdowne. Still, if the government
should be urged to make an inquiry,
it could not refuse without causing
suspicions upon the army.
Lord Rosebery wished to know
when the government had washed its
hands of the inquiry, who had promised it.
Lord Salisbury suggested the appointment of a preliminary commission to inquire into the promise,
whereupon the subject was dropped.

forward by Sir John Macdonald in
1879 and known as the national policy, the second part referred to a mutual preference; and in this connection Mr. Horden said that he did not
want to attack the policy of preference, but to add to a preference for
Canada in llritain. The third part
referred to discriminating against
these countries whose tariffs discrimi
nated against llritain. Sir Wilfrid
Laurier replied to Mr. Horden that
the policy was the same one as was
defined 22 years ago.

(SPECIAL, TO THE MIXER.)
Vancouver, March 18.���Owing to tho
numerous failures in British Columbia recently and the unsatisfactory
financial condition the wholesale grocers have threatened to shorten credit. They claim that the custom now
in vogue in Vancouver among retailers to delay payment for three and
even six months beyond maturity, has
become, to say the least, embarrassing. The Wholesale Grocers' association and the Retail Grocers' association subsequently met to talk the matter over. The retailers blame the unsatisfactory state of affairs on the
consumers, who had got into the habit in too many instances, of letting
their accounts run until they had got
so large that they were not able- to
pay, or until they were threatened
with legal proceedings. The wholesalo grocers intimated that this custom must be stopped, as in almost
every instance they (the wholesalers)
were obliged to pay cash for their
goods, and as u protection' to themselves, they had decided to shorten
credit, thus compelling retailers to do
the same with tbeir customers. The
Retail Grocers Association met together
afterwards and decided to extensively
advertise the fact, that all customers
without exception must pay their
hills before the twentieth of the
month, following that month in which
their bill matured. Failing to do
this they would be allowed three dayR
grace, after which time theyj would
be again nntifled. If the bill was not
then paid at onco it would be put in
the hunds of collectors. This plan failing, the incorrigable customer would
be black-listed, and would be unable
to obtain goods on credit at any other
store. The Retail Grocers' Association ore careful to explain that owing
to the action of the wholesalers they
are compelled to tuke this  action.

found the remains, stated that little
flesh was left on the body, and the
box must have lying in the open since
last summer. As the remains are
close to the Fraser the theory is that
an atrocious murder had been committed similar to the murder of Policeman Maine by Chinamen near the
same spot, two years ago. The headless trunk had evidently been brought
by water to the spot here it was
found. The head seemed to have been
cut from the body by a sharp instrument. The Stevcston police are investigating but so far there Is not the

(NI'Ki l \I. TO Till-: MINOR.)
Victoria, March Is.���The recent
decision of the Tull court of Britisli
Columbia that Japs have the right to
exercise the franchise is to be carried
to the privy couneil. Attorney-General Eberts so stated this afternoon ill
the house, iu reply to Mr. Martin,
wbo, amid loud applause, took Issue
wth the decision of the court. His
contention was that the privileges of
a subject given by naturalization did
not include that of the franchise. He
held there was no such thing as political right to vote. It was purely a
matter of statutes. Indians, Chinese,
men under 20 or over 40 all might be
excluded from tho right to vote, and
the aetion of the province in so doing
would be perfectly valid. The right
to vote did not come from the fact
that a man was a Hritish subject,
but because ho caino under the description of a voter as set out in the
statutes. Womon were debarred from
voting, but tbey wore still good British subjects. In Mr, Martin's view,
Hon, Mr. Eberts seemed to concur,
Mr. Martin also advised that in the
conduct of the appeal Canadian counsel be employed in preference to a
British one, Oliver Mownt having said
It was advisable to do so, owing to
the greater familiarity of Canadian
counsel with the laws and conditions
here. The house passed a resolution
this afternoon urging tho Dominion
and Provincial governments to promote shipbuilding in British Columbia. Hon. Mr. Eberts said the gov
ernment was fully In sympathy with
tbe proposal and was waiting to hear
from Ottawa, where certain representations re the matter had been made by
the government deputation. The
railway committee met this morning,
the room being crowded, owing to Mr.
.laffray's application, being before tho
members. Mr. Bodwell spoke In support of the bill, anil the evidence of
Mr. Jaffray was taken regarding the

of the transfer of that industry. The
evidence in each. Instance was, of

VERY  FUNNY.
A very funny thing happened on Sat
urdav evening. A gentleman named
E. J. McKay, who represents an east
em tobacco bouse, was a guest at tbe
Hotel Phair. Mr. McKay Is a wit
and together with two or three friends
determined to do something very
funny. So when Mr. Laird, a Miner
reporter, dropped in in the course of
his evening's rounds he was introduced to Mr. McKay and the latter proceeded to lie to him.
That was funny, wasn't it?
Mr. McKay told Mr. Laird tbat he
represented an eastern syndicate which
contemplated the establishment of a
refinery at some point in Hritish Columbia. Naturally, Mr. Laird questioned him on this point and elicited
sufficient from him to make a story
which was duly published in The Min
er as an interview with Mr. McKay.
Wasn't that funny!
Mr. Laird, of course, did not know
that Mr. McKay was lying for the
pleasure of it and assumed that what
he told him was true; and, besides, on
concluding his conversation with Mr.
McKay he was informed by those who
introduced him that anything Mr. Mc
Kay said was all right. And so the
story was printed.
Ha!ha!
The Tribune enjoyed the joke immensely. Alluding to the fun, yesterday morning, it said:
"Mr. McKay is described as a min-
--ing man hy Tlie Miner; but to his
friends he is known as 'Ed' McKay,
traveler for a tobacco bouse, aud a
'josher,' even when the victim of his
jest may be an unsophisticated reporter. No doubt 'Ed' enjoys the joke
quite as well as his numerous friends
in Nelson ; but it must be contested
that refineries are not built that
way."
It was an exceedingly clever piece
of work, but instances in which fun
of this sort may be bad may be cited
without end. For instance, somebody
who did not object to trifling with
the truth might get hold of a newspaperman some day and tell him a long
story about a man named Hoosten
how an extraordinary thing happened
to Hoosten. The story might run this
way: Hoosten was a Patriot. He
Loved his Country���was always Singing "My Country 'Tis of Thee" and
shouting "Down with Monopoly!
He was such a Patriot that the Image
of the Maple Leaf and Canadian Flag
was outlined on his Chest. But
strange Thing happened. (Of course
this is only a Yarn which might be
told.) Hoosten the Patriot went east-
say to Montreal���and while there he
was Seized by a Powerful Corporation
thrown down upon his Hack, his
Bosom laid bare, the Maple Leaf nnd
Canadian Flag obliterated and in their
stead a Shield, surmounted by a Ilea
ver, painted, something like this:
__aag*p__^_".��S2*3S-��S_s_--_.-_y;, r;
which bus seemed to offer noine difficulty in its solution, but men of eu-
terpiise und resolution will regard
the difficulty as more apparent than
real. As the resolution of the Nelson
Hoard of Trade says: "The Increase
and development of the industry are
Certain under favorable conditions,
whicli conditions mainly depend on
the miners being able to get their ore
melted at a reasonable charge for
freight  and   treatment."   With this
reasonable charge for freight and
treatment" and with a government
bounty of 85 a ton on tho product
smelted and re lined In Canada a market would not be far to seek. With
the competing railways which wo are
hound to have running from the Kootenays In the Paciiio const the rates
fur hauling to the seaboard should be
so greatly reduced that thu total cost
of transportation by rail and wator
to the Orient should give our product
a decided advantage in that market
over the product of any other country
Once a footing was obtained there,
tire market could, with the facilities
we would have for smelting and re
fining, lie permanently maintained
The encouragement which would thus
be given by the government to th'n
new industry would stimulate the de
vclopmcnt of the country in other respects and would not only call for tin
erection of refineries but would neces
sitate the enlargement of the capacity
of the smelters now in existence and
the erection of others. It would he
sides have a direct und beneficial in
tluence on the development of the
great coal measures of the province
and in numberless ways it would add
materially to the advancement and
prosperity of tlie country.

THE REFINERY.
The action of the Nelson Board of
Trade in making a move towards se
curing the establishment of a refinery
in British Columbia has been heartily
endorsed in Rossland. The RoBsland
Miner thinks tbat the resolution passed by tbe board will receive the approval of every resident of British Columbia interested in Hb welfare and
progress. The Miner is quite cer-
ta'.h thnt the development of our great
lead deposits should, under reasonably
favorable circumstances, become in a
few yearB' time, one of the most important industries of the conntry.
Those deposits are inexhaustible, and
the prosperity of an extensive area of
the province is intimately bound up
���with the successful treatment and
marketing of them. The question of
finding a sufficient and permanent
jjiarhet for the refined product is one
THE MINING   INDUSTRY.
Mr. A. C. Gait, of Rossland, has for
waidcd a very interesting letter to the
Victoria Colonist in which he dealfi
with the mining industry in Iliitish
Columbia and the extent to which it is
suffering from the operation of causes
which can be removed. He thinks
that if anyone could furnish a statement showing even one-half of the
money which capitalist, am." i-
holders have sunk in British Cuxuiuoia
during the past six years, the figures
would be amazingly large. And what
has been tlie return? How many companies have been able to reach a dividend-paying stage? And how much
have they paid in proportion to tho
anniunt t'.*r>c>mloil by them? If all this
disappointment were a physical necessity we Bhould indeed he in a Sorry
plight. But the present retrogression
is due to causes which are not difficult
to see, and which can be removed.
Tho expense of mining Is abnormally
high. Free miners' certificates, excessive fees for incorporating companies, customs duties which alone increase thu cost of operation by at least
25 per cent., income taxes, revenue
taxes, limber royalties, taxes on the
output of ore, all combine to render
mining on this side of the line lull 50
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 of the development of our mines.
The remedy whicli Mr. Gait suggests
18 to deal with tlie subject matter as
an infant industry, requiring all the
fostering care which the government
can bestow upon if. Instead of in
creasing the imposts which at present
overburden it, remove them, at least
for a period of a few years, until we
can show to the outside world a fal
array of dividend-paying mines which
will encourage people to invest thei
money in the industry. Obliterat
the present statutory enactments
which compel mine owners to disclose
their whole business to the public,and
thereby occasion fluctuations in the
stock market which areas injurious as
they are needless. If this course
were adopted by the government, and
we were able to proclaim our country
wide open for mining, the direct loss
which lire treasury would sustain for
the first year or two would he regained tenfold hy the indirect profit from
an Increasing and prosperous com
rounlty, and with this returning pros
parity there would be a rapid cessation of labor grievances which arc the
natural outcome of depression in business.
Victoria   has   caught   tbe    railway
craze.    A public meeting   will be held
there this evening to   discuss the situ
ation.
The Chinese commission is taking
evidence at Victoria. It is a farce of
the rankest kind. The Chinese and
Japs have lawyers present and are
questioning those who give evidence.
About tlie only thing which will result from the inquiry is that the commissioners will draw down good fat
salaries.
The very interesting announcement
collies from Victoria that a royal commission will be appointed to enquire
into the expediency of granting a
charter for the\'row's Nest Southern
railway. Such a course of action
will appear Indefensible to those who
argue   that   the     charter sliouiu   be
troversy ulioady engendered   will
continued with renewed vigor.

CURRENT COMMENT
THE CROW'S NEST SOUTHERN.
If the provincial government insists,
is despatches from Victoria declare is
the intention, on standing the Crow's
Nest Southern railway bill over until
next session they will be guilty of an
error for which they will never obtain forgiveness in the Kootenays.
It is possible that Mr. Dunsmuir
and his followers Jure of the opinion
that they can afford to ignore the
wishes of this district and can establish themselves more securely by playing in'o the hands of a gieat corporation than by serving honestly and well
tne best Interests of the people for
whom they have been apiiointed to
legislate, but they will discover their
mistake on their next appeal to the
people. The proposed resolution of
Mr. Pooley is the flimsiest kind of a
subterfuge to avoid facing the ques
tion fairly and honestly. Every mem
ber of the government, every member
of the house, who is informed to any
degree whatsoever on this matter
knows that the construction of this
road means industrial life and prosperity to the Crow's Nest country and
that without it comparative stagnation must exist. If, knowing this,
they allow themselves to be controlled
and dictated to by a railway ruonopoly
they arc unfit for tlie office they occupy and are traitors to the trust they
have assumed. That the government
for some tune Iiub beeii coquetting
with the C. P. R., the bitter opponent of the proposed road, is general
rumor and that the defeat of the char-
tei will be attributed to this influence there is not the slightest doubt.
That it will be lightly imputed to
this Influence we are quite convinced.
We trust for the good name of the legislature and for the credit of the cabinet that should Mr. Pooley introduce
any such resolution as it is understood
he will, it will be voted down by
a substantial majority. ��� Rossland
Miner.
Pending further information on all
the details in tbe School bill, we are,
however, inclined to critcise adversely the increase of sixty-six per cent,
in the tax at this time. The present
Government has the benefit of sources
of revenue which did not accrue to
its predecessors. Yet it has in its
short career in office practically doubled the tax nn Coal: doubled the mineral tax; largely inert- '.'he ���mcees-
sion duty and income .< aim added
very considerably to Indir""1* fixation
by raising fees and charges m certain
government depaitruents and now proposes to udd so largely to the revenue
tax. In all friendliness to the government we would suggest that this is
neither sound finance nor calculated
to favorably impress investors and settlers. It Ib easy to gain a transient
popularity Oy lavish expenditures ano
appropriations to all sorts of applicants. But if the whole fabric of taxation is to be augmented to do this,
there is certain to be a repetition of
the financial difficulties which in 1895
assumed a more acute form than many
persons Jtnew. Finance is the crux
of nearly every provincial government
in Canada and it is the one department in which so many of the administrations are shown by the results to
be very weak. Certainly the present
is not a propitious time for new ad-,
ditions to the taxpayer's burdens.���
Vancouver News-Advertiser.
The Sandon Paystreak has an idea,
and a good one. It suggests that in
order that the province be fully protected In case Jim Hill should try to
carry off all our coal and leave none
for the Canadian smelters when his
line into the Crow's Nest fields is
built, that he be not permitted to construct it at all; that tbe provincial government do that, and lease it to the
railway man. and we shall then have
him at our mercy. In case he shows
a disposition to pay any pranks his
lease may be cancelled and the country be perfectly safe from a fuel famine. As there cannot be the slightest
doubt that a railway which a company offers to build without a subsidy
will pay, and that handsomely, the
Paystreak seems to have struck a pay-
streak indeed. Tlie premier of Ontario
has promised to build a line under
similar conditions.but with a certainty that it will not pay for some time.
In the case of this short line in British Columbia government ownership
would be no experiment.���Victoria

There arc investments of another
class, which may be prejudicially
affected by legislation. When men
come into a country and in good faith
invest their money, they have a right
to some consideration at the hands of
the legislature. Thev have a right
to expect that the value of their investments will not bo lessened by
hostile legislation or by the enforcements of arduous conditions. Unless
care Ir taken in this legard, the people of British Columbia may find out-
when it la too late that they have let
a precious opportunity slip by, and
that the men, whose money is bo much
needed here to develop our great resources, have looked elsewhere, and
that tho men in whoso alleged behalf pernicious legislation is put on
the statute book, will be compelled to
seek elsewhere the livelihood, which
they have prevented themselves from
earning here.���Victoria Colonist,
The worst calamity that could befall the Crow's Nest Pass district and
also tlie coal consuming industries in
the Province would be for some United States coal company to buy out the
coal lands and keep them idle so as to
hold their place in the United States
market, but if any such design were
in contemplation there would be no
talk of railway construction to connect
with tlie Great Northern railway or
any other United States line.���Vancouver World.

HARRIS VS. PITTS.
Judgment in an Interesting Suit
Handed Down By Judge living.
The plaintiff in the aetion of Harris
vs. Pitts lias been awarded a verdict,
judgment in the matter having been
banded down by Mr. Justice Irving,
tlie trial judge. The parties to the
suit were .1. M. Harris, proprietor of
the Beeo hotel, the Kcco mine aud
part of the Sandon townsite, and II.
H. Pitts, mayor of the eity. Mr.
Pitts 1 uilt a store whicli was alleged
to occupy part of the street and to
militate against the vahio of property owned hy Mr. Hairs on the opposite Bide of the thoroughfare. In his
suit Mr. Harris sought to have the
portion of the building on the street
removed. The judgment is as follows :
"To entitle a. private person to
maintain an action for damage caused
by that which is a public nuisance
(such as the erection by the defendants of a bouse in tlie middle of a
street plainly is) the damage must be
particular, direct antl substantial.
The rule is founded on public policy
to prevent un infinite multiplicating
of suits. The only question in this
case is, Has the damage sustained bv
the plaintiff brought him within the
rule?
"In Hecket vs. Midland Ry, Co. (1.
r. 3 c. p.) as in this case, the thing
complained of was the narrowing of
'., the highway opposite the plaintiff's
premises and thereby obstructing the
free access thereto. This was held to
be such a private and particular damage as would entitle to bring an aetion.
"The building is a permanent building and, if permitted to   remain, will
^'permanently narrow the roadway.    It
'�� was   established   to   my   satisfaction
[ that  the erection of  this  obstruction
.'' substantially lessened the selling price
\ or value of   the   plaintiff's   property.
"I think he is entitled to the   relief
he prays with costs,    (Signed)
;  "P. M,   IRVING, J."

WOMEN AND MUSIC���
Madame Albani, who will visit Nelson April HJ, in an article on   "Singing and Its Inlluence During   the Past
Century," says, "We see the influence
of   singing   at   all   times and   in   all
walks   of   life, and even   the   humble
street-singer     has    an   Influence   for
good, and  a humanising influence upon the humble people  amongst   whom
he or she goes.    Where a performance
is to be given in aid of a   charity, the
first idea is to endeavor   to obtain the
assistance   of   some   singer���a fact of
which I have considerable experience.
If   a   celebration   is to ta��e place   or
some pci-Bon   to  be honored   the   first
thought is of   music   and   singers  to
sine it.    We need look back only during the last few months to see the innumerable   entertainments that  have
been organized   for   the benefit of the
sufferers by the   South   African   war.
I believe that nine-tenths of the whole
performances   were    undertaken    hy
singers and I think I am right in saying that   in eveiy case the result   entirely justified that course."

FOUND A BEER CHECK���
Engineer William McNab, of the C.
P.R., is in four bits and a beer check.
The two pieces of metal, ore of silver
and   the   other of brass,   were  taken
from the   stomach of his  spaniel  dog
"Bess" on Sunday   afternoon by Doctors   Armstrong     and   Lal'au.    They
had become   lodged in   the   intestines
in such a way that only an   operation
would save the life of the dog and the
operation   was   therefore    performed.
It was a very delicate operation,   too,
and performed with   as much  care as
though it had been upon a human be
ing.    The   medical   profession    were
much interested iu the event. Gathered around   the   operating   table were
Doctors Armstrong,   LaBau,   Doherty
and   Quinlan   and   Druggists   W     P.
Teetzel and   Johnnie Campbell.    Doo-
i ters   Armstrong   and   LaBau handled
I the knives and did their   work quickly and skillfully, so   skillfully indeed
that the   dog was   yet      l_y      itting
aronnd an lWclj   an ever.    The.   result-
of the search of the intei...        aie dog
was the fifty cent piece   and the   beer
check as mentioned above.    The latter
called for one glass of beer at the Log
Cabin saloon,   Seattle.    The  owner of
"Hess"   says   she   got   tired   looking
around for the saloon   and swallowed
the check.    As   a   matter of  fact   the
dog   has   an   abnormal   appetite   for
coins or   anything   that   looks   like a
coin.    For this reason her master never   leaves   any   Bllver   pieces   laying
around.    Tlie   two   bits of metal   she
did swallow were dropped by Mr. Me
Nab and gulped   down by the dog before she could interfere.    Mr.   McNab
says that   if   she   ever got  loose in a
bank she would break the   institution
before she got through.

QUESTION   ANSWERED.
Ycs.Augitst Flower still lias the largest sale of any medicine in the civilized world.  Your mothers and  grandmothers never   thought   of using any
thing else tor Indigestion   or Illlious-
ness.    Doctors   were scarce, and   they
seldom heard of Appendicitis, Nervous
Prostration   or   Heart   failure,     eto.
They used August Flower to clean out
the system and  stop  fermentation   of
undigested  food, regulate   the   action
of the system, and   that   is   all   they
took when feeling dull and   bad   with
headaches and other aches.    You only
need a few   doses of   Oreen's   August
Flower, in liquid form, to  make   you
