REARRANGED
Redistribution   Bill   Making
Many Changes Introduced.
Tales of Death and Disaster
From the Southern
Seas,
Victoria, March 20.���The redistribution bill submitlod today increased
the motnbers of tho house to IS, Viotoria retains 1 and Vanconver gets 5,
South Victoria and Vancouver island
are united and part of North Victoria
is merged into Saanicli, while all
islands of tbe gulf aro made into the
Islands constituency. North and
South Nanaimo become Newcastle;
Esquimalt loses a member; Nanaimo
City, Alberni,Cowichan and Ooraox remain the same as before. Delta,Chilliwack, Dewdney, Richmond and New
Westminster has eacb a representation
of one, while Cassiar is divided into
Atlin and Skeena with a member
each. Cariboo retains two while the
remaining; ridings are: Lillooet, two
ridings combine; Yale, Kamloops,
Okanagan, Similkameen, Greenwood,
Grand Porks, Ymir, Revelstoke,
Slocan, Nolson City, Rossland City,
Kaslo, Columbia, Cranbrook and
Fernie. It is believed to be generally
fair, although an increase in representation is regarded as a step in the
wrong direction. The opposition will
llkel;. hold for a reduction in committee, while approving tho general
principle of redistribution.
Victoria, M%roh 2. ��� rii:-:-��.��.!iht
month of February the natives of the
islands of the South seas gather on the
coast in large numbers and the vessels
which go to recruit laborers bring
home many stories of .treachery. This
year is no exception to the rule and a
number of those stories beirg htought
here by th? steamer Aorangi, which
arrived this iroming from Australia,
Suva and Honolulu.
The Ketch Venture while in Cadell
straits.a narrow and difficult passage,
was attacked by natives who attempted to climb over tho sides. In the
tight which iollowed this attempt two
members of the crew were killed by
spears in the bands of tho natives
tleorge McCabe, recruiting officers ol
the labor vessel Rhoderiek Dim, was
another victim,
The cruise of the barque bad been
fairly successful and the voyage without speoial incident until tbe island
of Malayta was reached. However, it
was decided to land for tbe purpose oi
obtaining a few recruits, if possible',
and although no instances of treachery on the part of the natives were
known to the officers of the vessel,still
McCabe took precautions against disaster of any kind. In the boat commanded by MeCabe were a number of
his trusted men, and another of the
ship's boats was also in attendance to
cover the landing patty. No nativts
were seen on the island, but Bhortly
alter the officer had landed and proceeded some distance up tbe beach be
was suddenly fired on from the rear
ty some of the islanders concealed
in some thick undergrowth. McCabe
was killed instantly. The murderers
after committing theit treacherous
deed, immediately lied inland and
thus escaped tbe wrath of the crew of
the Roderick Dbu. McCabe's body
was recovered,and later buried at sea.
Tho captain of ono of the recruiting
vessels adopted a novel method of
gettiDg natives to enter into contracts
with him. He secured a phonograph
and before leaving Queensland had a
native, already engaged on a planta
tion, talk into it, telling of the good
time he was having. This was taken
to the native villages and turned
loose. The natives flocked to the re
cruitmg ship. The Danish barkentine
Puck with 170 recruits on board ran
ashore and was wrecked. The recruits
and crew were rescued by the Ger
many steamer Meteor.
Another wreck, of wbich news was
received by the Aorangi, was that o
the schoonor Prosperity bound from
Newcastle to north Queensland
When oft Point Lookout, Stradhoik
island, tbe man at the wheel drew the
attention of the mato to land ahead
The mate for answer struck tbe mau
and immediately   tbe  schooner  weut
ashore. The crew, with the excun-
tion of the male who locked himself
in tbe cabin, spent tho night in thu
rigging and swam ashore in the morning. The mate and cook were
drowned,
A tribal war was in progress in
Noumea, one hand of villagers aitnok-
,'ed a rival village and according to reports received at Sydney a number ul
mon were killed and tbe wounded
were decapitated. It whs also said
that cannibalism was practised by the
sucessful party.
There were 20 eases of plague in
Sydney on February 24 and soveral in
llrlsbane. In Sydney tho theatres bave
been closed aud every precuation is
bciug takon to prevent a spread of
tbe disease. It is oonlined to one
locality. Tbo steamer \orangi called
at Suva this trip, this port having
been included in tbe ports of call of
tho Canadian-Australian linors. She
had 116 passengers. All accommodations en tbo two steamers to follow
her has heen booked hy passengers
bound fur London for the coronation.

Luxton Returns Aft Reaching Australia With Capt. Voss.
Victoria, March 20.���N. K. Luxton
wbo left here with Captain Voss on
the yacht lillicum, ao Indian war
canoe housed over, returned home
today,having abandoned the trip after
reaching Australia. Capt. Voss has a
new companion and is continuing the
trip in whicb he hopes to encircle tbe
world.
The news reached hero tonight of
the finding of wreckage on Mary
island on the northern coast. It is
believed to be from the collier Ilristol
which was wrecked a short time ago.
There are no idle ships here now,
the Gwydr Castle aud Ulenmark having been towod to Taooma to load
wheat, the owners accepting a very
low rate in preference to allowing
their vessels to remain idle. Tho

schooner King OyruB, which also has
orders to come here, hats arrived at
Honolulu with coal from Newcastle.
MAKING STEADY' PROGRESS.
Improvements  and  Addition to C. P.
R. in Koutenay.
The C.P.R. has beei adding to its
force of men on the line between Nelson and Robson until now there are
from 250 to 300 men employed. Work
has baen started on the bridge at
Slocan crossing but a much larger
force is engaged at the Kootenay river
crossing bridge near Nelson where
there are about 00 men. The two
piers are well undec way and can
easily be kept ahead of tbe rise ot the
water. The base of tbe masonry will
all be above water at the low stage
of the river, but not, by many feet, al
high water.
Good progress is being made witb
filing the approaches to thc Rcbson
bridge. A few days ago the most
powerful steam shovel on the Pacific
division was put to work and is doing
excellent execution. The design is
known as the Mairioo and tho machine is capable of lifting two and
one-half yards of earth at a load and
of filling a gravel car holding six
cubic yards in less than a minute.
It is expected that three weeks will
see almost, if not qnite, all ol tho
tilling done and then the Boundary
train will be run through to Nelson
ovei the bridge.
This change will make necessary
the doing of the greater part of the
repairs of cars for the division in Nelson. This will entail a eonsiderablo
addition to the working force here
which will number more than 150
men. A machine shop will be
equipped and it is possible tbat a new
one will be built.
A new Shay engine for hauling the
ore from tbo Rossland mines to the
Trail smelter has been built and is
expeoted to be oo the way to the
Koutenay division from the shops in
Lima, Obio,by April 1. It would take
about two weeks to come out. There
is already one Shay engine on the
division now on tbe run from I'honeix
to the Granby smelter. As shipments
from the Rossland mines increase tbe
rolling equipment in ore cars will be
added to also, and then od thc
division there will be a complement
of about 200 ore cars.
RECEIPTS WERE EXCELLENT.
Winnipeg,   March 20.���Receipts  for
the    tbree   hookey   matches   for  the
Stanley   cup   played here were  about
$7,500,     The Montreals share of   tbis
|is $1,800.
Have Unlimited Support and
Large Number of
Cattle.
London, Marcli 21.���A desn.ttcb to
tbe Times from Klerltsdorp, Transvaal
colDny, says tb.,t the Iloers in the
western Transvaal are well supplied
with guns and ammunition aud have
unlimited support and a large amount
of stock, that their numbers give them
oonddenoe, whilst tho blockhouse system has not yet extended fat dough
to ftlarm them. What is possible has
been done, continuos the correspondent, but owing to the insufficiency ut
troops the llritish columns havo boon
too small to cope adequately with the
Iloer forces, which are all composed
of fighting men without any intention
of surrendering.
FITZSIMMONS HEARD FROM.
His Terms Regarding Purse Considered
Rather Exacting.
Los Angeles, Cai., Maroh 20.���Manager McCarthy of the Century Athletic
club, received a telegram from Robert
Fitzsimmons today stipulating the
conditions under which he would
accept the club's offer to fight
Jeffries. The text of Fitzsinircon's
message has not been made public.
Piesident McCatthy said: "Fitzsiui-
mons is too exacting. He combines
two of our propositions and wants
both. We still think our bid of a
$25,000 cash purse is the best to be
had and perhapB Fitzsimmons will
come to sse it that way. We have replied to bis telegram, but I am not
ready to state tho conditions therein,
an answer Is expected tonight,
however.
When shown Fitzsiromons' statement that he would fight In Lo.
Angeles under certain conditions,
Hilly Delaney, Jeffries' manager,
said: I bave not heard from Jeffries
regarding tho despatch but I know he
will grab at anything that means a
meeting with Fitzsimmons. 1 don't
know whether the Los Angeles club
will consent to suggestions from Fitz
or not, but I do know that tbey will
do anything within reason.

HA_ MADE NO DEMAND.
Unitod States Has Not Asked Turkey
to Pay Miss Stone's Ransom.
Washington, March 20.���The persistent circulation of reports that the
State department bas made a demand
upon Turkey for reimbursement of
the money expended in tbe ransom of
Miss Stone, is causing the officials of
that department a good deal of annoyance. It can be stated as a fact that
tbe State department bas made so
such demand on Turkey and consequently tbe Turkish government bas
not flatly  refused to pay.
ROWING EVENT AT CORK.
Washington, March 20.���Ambassador
Choate has transmitted to the State
department a circular sent to tbe
United States embassy by the chief
secretary to the Lord lieutenant of
Ireland relative to a proposed rowing
race at Cork in connection with tbe
exbibition wbich will be held in that
city next July.
The Lord Chief Justice has promised
to give a cup wbich is to be won "out

race will be open to all amateurs of
all nations and it is desired tbat
publicity be given the project in the
United States.

Scenes of Disorder and Tu-1
mult In the Imperial
House,
Traitor and Liar Were Terms
Bandied Among the
Members.
London March 20.���One of the
liveliost scenes witnessed in tbe House
of Commons since the palmiest days
of the Irish Nationalists, ended tli 1^
afternoon with the suspension of John
Dillon. During the discussion of
South African affairs, the Liberal
leader, Sir Henry Campbell-Banner-
man vigorously protested against the
government's conduut in uttering
"malignant slanders" in calling the
Llbeials "pro-Boers,"
Tlie Colonial secretary, Mr. Cham-
beilain, in the cour..o of an equally
incisive reply, said bo desired deliberately to accuse Sir Henry Campbcll-
ltannerinan of losing no opportunity
for slandering bis countrymen, the
soldiers and tho government. Consequently, the "malignant slanders"
had come from tbe opposition side.
Mr. Chamberlain, proceeding, referred
to the Iloers who arc fighting in the
British side, when John Dillon. Irish
Nationalist, interjected, "They are
traitors," on which Mr. Chamberlain
retorted, "the honoiahlc gentleman is
a good judge of traitors." A scone of
groat cunlusion ensued. When order
was partially restored, Mr. Dillon
demanded a ruling on Mr ��� Chamberlain's words.
Tbe Speaker said : "An honorable
member spoke of soldiers serving
under the British flag as traitors. I
deprecated the interruption and I
depreciate the retort of tho other
member."
Mr. Dillon then said: "I will tell
the rigbt honorable member that he
is a damned liar."
A dead silence followed this remark. Such unparliamentary language seemed to stun the bouse. Tbe
Speaker invited Mr. Dillon to with
draw the expression but the latter
said: "I will not withdraw
���'Then I must name you," said the
Speaker.
The government leader, A. J.
Balfour then said: "I beg to move
that Mr. Dillon be suspended from the
service in tho bouse.''
The motion was carried by 248 to 4S1
votes. Mr. Dillon's suspension under
tbe present rules cannot exceed a
week.
The ejection of Mr. Dillon did not
serve to clear the atmosphere and the
remainder of the debate was fillo d
with personal allusions and unpleasant exchanges, the nature of
which would havo excited comment
bad they not be discounted by the
first explosion. David Lloyd George,
Welsh Nationalist, bitterly attacked
the government, drawing a harrowing
picture of the conditions in South
Africa and charged the war olliee with
pigeon-holing important information.
Sir Cbarlos Cajes, Conservative, interrupted Mr. Lloyd Georgo saying
that the speaker was playing to tbe
pro-Boers, whereupon Mr. Lloyd
George characterized tho interruption
of Cayes as "an insolent remark,"
This caused confusion in the honso
and cries of 'withdraw." John Redmond, leader of the Irish party in the
.-louse of Commons, appealed to tbe
chair, and Sir Charles reluctantly
withdrew his statement. Mr. Plummet and Mr. John Redmond then hud
an altercation and after moro disotder
Mr. Lloyd Georgo succeeded in finishing with tho remark tbat he did not
know who was responsible lor all the
errors and incompetency in South
Africa, but that the men who had
profited by these conditions now sat
upon tho government bench.
Mr. Broderick, the secretary of state
for war, answered Mr. Llr yd Georgo
with a long defense of the war
policy.
During the day's nlscnssion in the
House of Commons Mr. Broderick and
Mr. Chamberlain showed themselves
to be very hopeful over the position ot
affairs in South Afiioa. Mr. Chamberlain estimated there were still
0,000 lighting Boers in tbe field. The
optimism Is rather offset by the fact
that   the   government   has again jtelc
Assay Offloe at Vancouver Anticipates
Largo Receipts.
Vancouver, March 20. ���William Mc-
Cafl'ry, manager of the Vancouver
assay office, today intimated that he
looks forwaid to a rushing season this
year. Every oue on the coast in the
northern gold-bearing regions of the
Yukon and Atlin, and iu Cariboo and
the Northwest Territories is aware of
thc large amount of gild dust bandied
at the local assay olllcu last year, and
if the expectations of Vancouver are
realized the amount of dust received
this summer and fall will be far
greater than that handled last season.
All winter the Vancouver assay
office has been kept busy handling
small consignments of gold dust from
nearly evory placer mining section of
lower British Columbia and tbu
Territories,nud while it may bo stated
that tbe volume of business none was
not great, still the gold received was
sufficient to keep tho staff busily
mpluyed.
Manager McCaffry stated this morning that ho tloos not expect to handle
much Yukon nnd Atlin gold dust until
the latter part of June or the beginning of July when tho first big cleanups from winter mining in the Yukon
and Atlin will uenin to arrive in the
city. Owing to the fact that it is
possible low water may prevail in the
North aftor the first freshets, it is
likely that tho minors will pnt forth
every effort to make tbeir cleanup as
rapidly aa possible,and such being the
case the gold will come in wilh a rush
when it starts Vancou verwards.
Tho excellent service rendered by
the Vancouver office last season is so
well known now throughout the
North thut in the natural course of
events much more gold dust will bo
handled here during the coming summer and full than was tbe case last
year.

A NOVEL SUOOKSTION.
In connection witli tlie proposal to
erect an electric power plant at Ilon-
niogon Falls to supply Nelson with
electric lights and power �� suggestion
emanates from Rossland which seems
feasible and ia worthy of consideration. In hrief.it is suggested that the
cities of Nelson, Rossland and Trail
enter a partnership and erect the
plant, so that each of tho cities will
ho enabled to secure the power for
lights from the plant, It Is eon-
tended that the cost would he less to
eaoh than if three separate plants
wore erected and that the desired
result of plenty of power for nil lithts
lieeced would at the same time be
secured. The cities could each '.ako a
third interest in the plant or they
could hare interests in proportion to
their population. Tho proportion
which each should own is h mere mater of detail which scould be arranged later on if thc scheme should
meet with the approval of the
citizens cf this and the other towns
mentioned. Nelson is entitled to the
site and which will doubtless bo given
to it during tho present session of the
legislature. The above suggestion appeared in the Rossland World a few
days since.
One   tf   the chief objections to   the
city   of   Nelson embarking in tho enterprise of building tho   power   plant
last   year    wns   that   protests    were
made to incurring to large   an indebtedness as $150,000 for tho construction
of an electrio power plant and   a pole
line betwoen   bonnington   Falls   and
this   city   at a time when the mining
industry was under a cloud   owing  to
the very low price   of   metals,   which
made the future of the district Bnd the
eity   appear   gloomy   and   uncertain.
Now, however, tho price of   metals   is
riBing, a number  of new   raining and
reduction schemes are   being   pushed,
the out'ook is brighter,and the matter
of providing a power plant for the city
is again coming   to  the   front.     The
sugzestion   above   outlined,    if   it   is
caariod out,   has one merit which will
entitle lt to careful   consideration   on
the   oart  of   the  people of this city,
which is that it will enable   them   to
secure   all   the power needed for considerably less of an   expenditure  than
if they   alone   erected the plant.     Of
course,   side ownership is always better than partial ownership,   nnd   friction     would   doubtlcs   arise   wero a
plant owed by thiee cities.
One method of preventing this
would be to secure contracts from
Rossland and Trail to furnish them
with lights at a little above cost and
then to have Nelson erect the plant. If
this could be done the income would
be large enough to yield a pood profit
ami to guarantee the psyutent of the
principal of tho indebtedness in short
order. Besides this capitalists would
lend money on much moro faverab1!!
terms on n plant which w.-.s lighting
threo cities than they would on oue
which was performing a like serviee
for only one town.
The city authorities shook! carefully consider the above suggestion as
we believe it is worthy being looked
into.
and give representation in proportion I
to papulation. Tho legislature with
IS members is quite laigo enough at
present and there wns no particular
necessity for increasing its si/.e by the
addition of four members. One good
effect of the redistribution bill, if
udopted, is that thu mi: ing sections
of tho province will ho a represented
by a larger delegation than hitherto.
Under this condition nmru attention
will be paid to legislation of a nature
that will bo beneficial lo the minirg
industry, fts the representative fiom
Kossiand, Greenwood, Nelson,eto,will
he elected by mining constituencies
they will of necessity have a

BEDI8XB1B0TI0N HILL,
A redistribution bill wns submitted
ln tho house yesterday, which increases the number of representatives
from 33 to 42. It puts Vancouver
island, which formerly was in the
ascendency, in the minority, The
mining districts will he well represented. Nelson division, for instance,
will have two members nee from
Nels'iu and the other (rom Ymir, instead of one. The Hound:iry country
is given two members, ono at Greenwood and one at Grand Forks, and
there will still bo ore member for
Rossland. The redistribution seems
to have beon made with a desire to be
just   to   each   section of tbe  province
EDITORIAL NOTE?.
The Vancouver Province recently
published a rather pessimistic article
ou the condition of the mines and cf
business in the Rossland cump. The
Rossland board of trade took the matter up and stated that Rossland mines
were in splendid condition, that thc
quantity of ore shipped was laige ana
iucieasing, and lhat tbe general oondition and outlook were never brightei
in the history of the camp. The Prov.
ince realizing that it had been misinformed published the following
amende honorable: "The Province is
glad to learn from a resolution of thc
Russlnnd board of trade,reproduced in
another column, that the prospects for
tbe immediate future in Rossland are
much brightor than this newspaper
thought for in writing of it a few
days since. Rosslnud cannot be any
too prosperous to suit The Province.
Good luck to you, neighbor."
It would bo hotter for llritish
Columbia tc pay for the building of
tho Canada Northern railway through
its territory and keep tlm eight millions of acres of land, says tho New
Denver Lodge. ��� The building of the
road will make the land very prollt-
able and the province can make much
more than the cost of building the
road. To givo away the land and
money besides sounds like a scheme to
rob tho people. We should retain
something if we ever expect to got out
of debt.
A bonus ls offered by the Net
Zealand government to the inventor
of the most successful appliance for
saving gold Irom black sands. The
conditions of the offer are that the
invention shall be new, portable, and
capable of utilizing local wator; that
it shall have a capacity of 30 cubic
yards per hour, and be able to treat
material valued at bnt 3d per cubic
yard at a profit; that it shall save not
less than 80 per oent of the gold ln
the sands treated; and that it shall
work six months, treating not less
than 100.000 cubic yards of material,
before the bonus shall be payablo.
Copper mines as a rule are long
lived. Some of the earliest opened lis
the United States fifty years ago are
still productive with no signs of
becoming exhausted very soon. One
of the oldest copper mines of tbe
world is at Fahlun, Sweden. This
mine has b;en worked for seven hundred years and lias produced 500,000
tons of copper, fifteen tons silver and
one and one-quarter tone gold, representing a value of 8277,500,000. Evidently people in Sweden are not so
much in a hurry as they aro in the
U. S,, or their facilities for working
mines aro not as good. In MOO a
single copper mine in tbe United
States yielded 00,000 tons copper. At
that rate this mine will produce more
copper in ton years than the Swedish
mine has in 700 yenrs.
Should a Canadian accept knighthood or a baronetcy st thc hand of the
Imperial government, or, ns it is
formally pnt from tho crown, is a
question which has been ranch discussed. Knighthood and baronetcies
are at best but survivals of what was
once a reality. That reality never did
and never can exist in Canada. The
sentiment of Canada is against the
importation of the time-dried shell.
The man of action is admired in
whatever walk of life he may be, and
it cannot bo said that anyone has been
the reeeipient of this title has been
raised in public estimation by such
artificial honor. As a rule it wonld
appear that in this country the people
look upon a man who has accepted a
title as on one who has been tempted
and has yielded; they forgive him but
do not forget that he has fallen. They
honor much more those who have resisted. Then there are those who wish
to be tempted and it seems that it is
this desire to be tempted that is guiding to some extent the politics of
llritish Columbia.

It is again rumored that the
Gooderham-Blaokstock syndicate, ih
negotiating for the purchase of tho
Trail smelter.
The Trout Lake Topic declares that
Lardeau's output of this year should
reach 82,000,000. A large output certainly and easily likely to be realised
quite so soon, judging by present appearances. But until railroad facilities and hotter general 'ransport, and,
perhaps, also the smull looul smelter
successfully at work, an output ol at
least (1,000,000, or more than thrice
thut of 1(H)1, would seem to be likely
enough. And appearance suggest
every possibility of tbo (1,000,000 ol
annual output doubling In 1908,
The   sample   mill   of     the    Sutisot
smelter (formerly Standard smelter)
at Houndaiy Falls, recently purchased
by the Montreal and Boston Copper
Company, is boing dismantled, preparatory to pntting in a larger plant,
says the Phoenix Pioneer. A No. li
Gates rock crusher and a Bridgoman
sampler have been ordered and a
largor engiue tnan the ono previously
installed has been purchased, and,
with the other now plant, will shortly
bo received at the works. Much of the
sampling plant lirst put in will bu
used, but it will be supplemented by
the heavier machinery. Nothing definite has yet beon announced us to Die
company's intentions in regard to the
furnace already built, but it is sntici-
puted tbat whatever butierments are
required in this department of the
new smelter will shortly be taken in
band. Alterations and extensions of
the buildings and the erection of
additional ore bins are among the improvements tbat will bo made. With
so much to do to g��'t the works in
proper shape for continuous bmelting
on a sufficiently largo scale to make
U pay, it appears unlikely that tbo
furnace will be blown in before next
June.
The Ashcroft Journal of tbo 15th
inst. says: Four or five prospectors
returned from tho Horsefly discoveries
this week and report that they failed
to flud, after ten days' prospecting,
any encouraigng results. One of them
plainly says that he did not linri any
gold. He was one of a party of three
or four and he claims that thoy prospected all the creeks, sinking some 40
holes to bedrock, a dopth of about
three feet, and that the product in
gold was nil. The snow, ho says,
was from two to two and a half foet
deep, but they had no difficulty in
clearing it off and sinking to bedrook.
Others who reached the creeks about
the same time, this prospector says
are coming out by the lake and others
down the river. The Journal nevertheless doolares that it bolieves there
is something in the much "boomed"
discovery. Meanwhile really substantial corroborations is still wanting,
and the most that can fairly be said is
tbat the Cleaiwater and Horsefly districts will bear furthet prospecting by
a fair number of men, who know their
way about and can afford to risk loss
of time and of a moderate amount of
cash and energy should their searches
prove unsuccessful as regards gold
finding. It will, however, be worse
than folly, as matters stand, to encourage an early tush of many hundreds to tbe spot.

FINAL CURLING MATCH.
An account of a curling match held
on Wednesday by rinks composed ol
members of thc Curling club, copied
from the club minute book is rather
interesting. The extracts reads as
follows: "Tho games were skipped
by Wallace aud Carrie, Wallace winning by the score of 10 to 0. The
game was a hot one right from the
start, some sensational plays being
made by Tamblyn and Carrie
(although some said they were flukes,
but some people don't know good
pluying when they see it). Wallace
and Stocks could occasionally set a
stone in the rings, and Bird would
sometimes get one down by rolling it
on edge. Beer would get the broom
just whore he wanted it but the stone
did not seem to land just where he
expected it to. Turner played a star
game chasing Tamblyn and Carrie
close for the honors although when he
made an extra good shot he would say
hat tbat was what be played for even
when it was on the opposite side of
the ice rink from the broom.
Wateborn played a good independent
game. He didn't believe in showing
partiality to any particular part ol
tbe ice and wben be did get the
bioom the stono generally landed
somewhere. Dr. Armstrong played a
very showy game. He would start his
stones one afier another without playing any attention to the skips and
tbon he would step up on the boards
and walk down to the other end
smoking his cigar and would look
mad if Tamblyn didn't sweep his
stones into the rings."

Regarding'! tbe proposal tbat tbe
Fish and Uanr.e Protective Association
should endeavor to get the government
to pass a law prohibiting the selling
of trout, a very pertinent suggestion
was marie by a gentleman interested
in the matter yesterday. lie said that
it would in all piobabllty be found
impossible to get the legislature to
take any sucb drastic step, but that if
instead to have a license required to
sell trout it could bo arranged with
out much difficulty. This would have
much tlie same effect as the prohibi
tory law, if tbe license were made
high enough,say $T,0 per year. If once
the market for trout was removed tbe
unlawful means of destroying trout
would quickly ceise.
NEW THEORY
Cause of Hay Fever
Hay fever is not so much a result of
climatic oonditloans as it is a showing
of tbe "weak spot" in the general
condition of tbe body. If a hay fever
sufferer can be fed up to a prime condition of health by the use of well
selected food th? chances are the hay
fever will not present itself.
As an illustration, a lady in Cave
Spring, On., explaios bow the cbangi
of food affected her. "Tbis past sum
nier I found myself in a very low
state of health and much emaciated.
I got down to OS pounds and was wor
ried, especially as I had to look
forward to my annual tussle with hay
fever in September acd lelt it would
push me even father down.
One   day   a friend told me she   had
been   using    Grape-Nuta    Breakfast
Food and that shy felt like a new person with greatly Increased strength
and vigor. 1 graspd at the straw and
begun the use of Urape-Nuts. The
effect was really magical. In a week
I felt toned up and in a 111 nib berran
in earnest to gain Oe.to and strength.
Ity September my weight had I a areas-
od to 110 pounds an I inu.-h to my
amazement I discovered that when the
hay fever sufferers began to Qompla in
I had not one symptom and escaped it
altogether. Inasmuch as I had suffered for yeBrs from this misernblo
disease and bad male no change except in my food,I naturally concluded
that my imp-oved condition was
caused bv the daily use oi (irape.Nnts
and bv observing lhe usual laws of
health." Name ean be giveu by

SOFTNESS OF SEALSKIN.
Is Rivaled liy Human Hair Where
Dandruff in Eradiated,
Sealskin is admired the world over
for its softness and glossiness and yet
the human hair in equally as soft
and glossy when healthy; and the
radical cause of all hair trouble Is
dandruff, wblob is caused by a pestiferous parasite that saps the vitality
of the haii at its root. Newbro's Herpicide is the only preparation that is
fatal to the dandruff germ. Without
dandruff no falling hair, hut a luxuriant giowth of glossy, soft hair is certain. Scouring the scalp won't cnio
landruif. Kill the ''andruff germ.
Thousands of women owe thoir beautiful suits of hair to Newbro's
