Washington thought that the governments of Japan and Russia were
negotiating the exchange of Oorea for

Shot at a Woman lieoause She Would
Not Marry Him.
Orrllla, Dec. 0.���What nearly proved a fatal shooting affray took place
near Ardtres, Orllla township, last
night. Mrs. William Reid, a young,
good-looking widow, manages her

Safer to Havo Troops Near While
Filipinos Learn Self Government.
Washington, Dec. 0.���The war department today made public the first
annual report of Major General

up Ihe "situation in the Philippines
form a military point of view by
Btating that the provinces of Batangas
and I.aguna in Luzon and the islands
of Samar, Midoro, Cebu and Bohol
constitute the area now disturbed by
any embodied force of insurgents.
He says that to tho physical character of the country, to the nature of
the warfare of the rebels, who are
am I go and foe in the selfsame hour, to
the humanity of troops which is taken
advantage of by the rebels and the
inhabitants who sympathize with
them, and to the fear of assassination
on the port of the fuendly disposed if
tbey give information to the American
forces is due the prolongation of the
guerilla warfare. Commenting upon
the plan of gradually replacing military wilh civil administration, General Chaffee says; 'The withdrawal
of interference with civil affairs does
not mean withdrawal of the troops
from their stations to any considerable extent. On the contrary, this
should not be done hast'ly, and when
undertaken should be gradual and
more in tho nature o' concentrating
that reduction of force or abandonment of any considerable area of
He therefore recommends that there
bo no further material reduction of
troops before January, 1003. The
civil governments which are being
organized, provincial and municipal.
General Chaffee says, are both now
and untried and there is but one certain and reliable method of ascertaining the progress of the Filipinos in
self government, namely, observation
by the army.

Suience has finally given a quietus
to the theory that Bacon wrote the
divine tragedies and wonderful comedies of Shakespearo, and incidentally
knocked to pieces the cryptogram of
the late Ignatus Donnelly. In the
Popular Science Monthy, Professor
Mendcnhall, oi Worcester, gives the
ingenuious though fallacious theory a
death blow. The professor's system
is exceedingly simple but is one that
is convincing because it is on scientific lines. It consists of n graphic
representation of various authors'
styles upon a word curve foundation
which is based upon the number of
letters in words used by each writer.
Two million words were counted and
a lino drawn to represent thc average
for each author. It was learned that
the two curves for Bacon and Shakespeare were widely different. The
latter's vocabulary consists of words
thc average of which is less than four
letters, while his word o[ greatest
frequency is the four letter word.
Bacon's average word contains more
letters and this,it is contended, makes
It impossible for him to have written
the works of Shakespeare. It is contended by Professor Mendenhall that
style in composition is largely a
matter of habit aud that the selection
of words in a composition Is the result
of unconscious cerebration and largely mechanical. Notwithstanding this
most plausible and at the same time
really scientiflco test the admirers of
Bacon will not be convinced that he
was not the author of "Hamlet,
"Richard III." "Macbeth," and tbe
other plays attributed to the Bard of
Avon, The attenrut to rob Shakespeare
of the honors to which he le justly
entitled is one of the most despicable
in the annals of literature. It was
an attempt to rob the dead of an
honor in order to give the honor to
another dead man. Surely each of
these two great .masters of thought
achieved enough fame and honor by
their literary works to be content
wittiont having posterity rob one to
benefit tbe other. Those who would
rob Shakespeare should remember bis
words yihen he sayBi
"Who steals my purse steals trash,
Tie som'thliig, nothiog,
'Twas mine, 'tis his,
And has been slave to thousands.
But be who filches from rae my   good
Robs me of   that   which not   enriches
And makes mc poor indeed."
The City Council at its meeting on
Thursday evening decided to submit
four bylaws to the ratepayers, providing for the raising by way of debentures of the sum of $170,000 for the
following piirposus: 8150,000 for an
electric light plant; 810,000 for
school purposes, $50(10 for an isolation
hospital, ami $5,ooO for a lire ahum
system. These bylaws will bo voted
for by the ratepayers on Friday,
December 20th. Copies of Uicho four
bylaws appear in Other columns. Tlie
borrowing capacity of the city only
equals 1185,000 and if the ratepayers
decide in favor of the bylaws the
margin left for possible contingencies
will be only $15,000. It is within the
range of possibilities that action will
he taken in relation to the proposed
refinery nnd in that event it would be
ililllciilt tor the municipality to raise
the 850.000 which it has promised as n
bonus to that concern for locntlng it
here. The lead refinery bonus might
be raised by direct subscriptions from
the larger property Owrers, which Is
a custom sometimes adopted by cities
ln enscs of this kind. Of oourse the
rais ng of tbe money by tixuton Is the
more equitable, as tlie tax then falls
on nil of the   property benefitted   and

not on the few liberal property owners. The matter of providing an electric light plant, which is of great im
portance,is now fairly before the ratepayers and they can do with it as in
their wisdom they may eleot. There
is one feature about the providing of
electric light and power whioh is a
strong rei'ommendationjfor it. It is
in tbe nature of an investment which
will give tbe oity a peroetual revenue
and the right to forever supply the
citizens with light plant. The
only question to be considered is Is it
expedient at the present time to make
such a large expenditure? This is a
question which the ratepayers will
answer at the polls on the 20th of tbis
Tbo Victoria Times believes that
people should do something for themselves and not call on the government
to come to tbeir aid every time tbat
they are in need of anything. The
discussion alluded to in these columns
between the Times and the Colonist
concerning Dominion aid for a smelter on Vancouver island is still in
progress. Tbe Colonist favors government aid for the enterprise while
the Times is opposed to it. The Times
is dealing some lusty blows in lavor
of self reliance in the matter at issue
which are so good that one of its editorials on the Bubjeet is appended. It
is as follows:
"Certainly tho Times is in favor of
bringing ores from the north, the
south and the uttermost parts of the
earth to Vancouver island to be smelted if such undertakings are practicable. But there surely ought to be
something demonstrated before federal
assistance is talked of. There must
be a line drawn somewhere, however.
The government cannot be expected to
spoon-feed every infant industry that
applies for aid. Is not assistance to
new lines of communication, improvement of harbors, and various other
works of federal necessity, sufficient?
To bo sure, there has,been a departure
from established practice in the bonus
npon the products of steel and lead
furnaces, and it is a question of how
far it would be advisable to extend
this principle. We must not ue unreasonable in our demands, oi our
legitimate claims may receive less
consideration than they deserve.
Something must be left to private
enterprise. It is notable tbat in
British Columbia at least sraelterB
have been established in the localities
where they oan be operated most
economically,generally as close to the
ore supply as possible. By artificial
stimulus it bas been attempted In
more than one instance to overcome
the operations of this natural law,
and the result has been very lar from
what was hoped for. The mission of
the federal government should be to
protect our inteiests and secure to us
all tbat is ours by natural light and
natural position. When insuperable
barriers to progress are raised by
rivalB with the object of taking ad
vantage of onr comparatively depon
dent condition, then it should be the
duty of the government to oome to the
assistance of private enterprise. But
these departures from the normal are
dangerous, inasmuch as they are apt
to foster a spirit of weakness and

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
There is nothing like Asthmalene. It

cases.   It cures when all else fails,
Thc Rev. O. F. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,

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. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you had nverspnkeii
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial acted like a
charm.   Send me a full size bottle.

my own skill ns well os many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your

Tho curious experiences people have
with coffee   drinking  are worth pon
deriiig over if anyone   is   ailing  and
does   not   know     the   exact     reason
Coffee is a secretive worker, and
through the nervous sys'.em affects
different parts of the body in different
A young married woman. Mrs.T. I
Bliickmon, Oswego, Montana, Had a
conclusive experience in the effects of
coffee on her eyes. She says, "I have
used eollee since a child, bnt a short
time ago my eyes began to grow
weak, and the least exertion such ni
reading or sewing would cause shoot
ing pains and wavy lines of light so
that I could sec hut little else fu
minutes ac a time.
This alarmed me and I earnestly
sought the cause of the trouble,
Someone told me that coffee sometimes affected the eyes. I at once
decide to quit I* and see if I would be
benefited, but I must have something
to take the place of coffee, for I wauled to modify, as much as possible, the
sacrifice of giving it up.
Mo 1 decided to try I'ostnm for my-
Hitlf. When it came I made It strictly
according to directions and was wonderfully surprised and pleased with
it, Husband says that my I'ostum is
Very different, indeed, from that he
once drank at a friend's (utile,
I frankly own that I like Postum
better than I ever liked ooffee. It hns
a rich body to It that coffee lacks. 1
boil it longer than twenty minutes
and it improves it. Perhaps it requires longer boiling in the high altitudes.    I think it does.
For three months now I have been
using I'ostnm nnd have been wonderfully benefited. My eyes no longer
pain me, and are strong as they ever
wore. My complexion, Instead of
being sallow.ns formerly, Is clear and
rosy. I know to a certainty that mv
improvement has been caused leaving
off ooffee and using I'ostum, for that
ia absolutely the only change I have
made, and I have taken no medicine,
A Mr. Uandall.a friend of ours, has
obtained relict from Ills stomach

Mile creek. This group is owned by
Beamish Brothers and ErnBhaw. An
important strike has just been made
on the property. Recently a shaft
was sunk on the main showing to a
depth of 20 feet and a two foot pay-
streak found in the bottom of the
shaft. The ore is free milling, carrying gold and averages 816.80 in gold
to thc ton. \ tunnel has been started
which will tap the ledge at a depth
of 50 feet. The find is the most important that has yet been made on
Nine Mile creek Mr. Beamish says
if the mine holds out the way it looks
as though it will, he intends to apply
for membership in the mine owners'
association,us he will then be eligible
for membershp. Mr. Beamish is also
interested in thc Iiawdon group, which
adjoins the Eldorado on thc east. He
and his associates havo been working
on this property for tho past four
years. The ledge is seven feet wide
and assays as high as 850 ln all
values, the principal value being
copper. A pump is to bo installed
and operation resumed on the shaft
The intention iB to carry on opera
tiona on the two properties all winter.
Thc ground is much easier than that
at Rossland, as two men in the Eldorado averaged three feet a day in
running a tunnel for 45 feet All the
drilling was done single handed. A
government trail from the west arm
of the lake runs through the properly
and the intention is to widen this out
to a wagon road. Mr. Beamish left

Report of the Canadian Commercial
Agent at Sydney.
Ottawa, Dee.O. ���Tho Canadian commercial agent in Australia writes the
trade and commerce department from
Sydney under date   of   Nov.   0,   that
the announcement of the tariff, has
had little effect on the trade ot the
colonies. The imports of New South
Wales have lessened, but improved
trade in the other states has not foi.
lowed. This Is partly due to the uncertainty that still surrounds some of
the details of the duties. While the
government has been sustained in its
policy intimations were given during
the discussion that some changes in
the tariff will be made. Until the
tariff is finally passed, uncertainty
will make importers hesitate as to
future business. The newspapers on
the 29th contained a cable saying that
the London Times had stated that the
government of Canada was likely to
approach tho gcvernmeut of Australia
with a view to securing a reciprocal
trade agreement. This called forth a
statement from Premier Barton, which
appeared in tbe leading morning
newspapers. The Sydney Morning
Herald verson is: "Apart from the
question of policy involved, tho premie- rfated there were a good many
iioims which would bave to be considered before such a suggestion cculd
be entertained. First of all, overtures
would have to be reoeived from an
official und authoritative source.
Then some Instructions would have to
be obtained regarding goods which it
would be desirable to bring under a
reciprocal tariff. The more important
consideration still was the effect such
a preference would have on the relations of Australia with othor
countries. The recent experience of
Canada in connection with Germnay
was to say the {east \ery encouraging.
The suggestion had already been
made that there might be a conforence
of representatives of Australia,Cenada
and South Africa at the time of the
coronation. He had found, however,
that suoh oacasions are not faovrable
to the holding of a conference after
that kind.

Another ridiculous food fad has been
branded by the most competent
authorities. They have dispelled the
silly notion that one kind of food is
needed for bruin, another for muscles,
and still another for bonea. A correct diet will not only nourish a particular part of the body, but it will
sustain every other pait. Yet, however good your food may be, its nutriment is destroyed by indigestion cr
dypepsia. You must prepare for their
ppearance or prevent their coming by
aking regular doses of Gioen's August
Flower, tho lavonte medicine of the

digestion, stimulates the liver to
healthy aotion, purifies the blood, and
makes you feel buoyant and vigorous.
