He reports tDat the troop was lauded
at Durban, and from there they took
the train for Newcastle. He reports
that he bas lots of duty to perform but
tnat the outdoor life and exercise
keeps him and the rest of the troop in
good health and spirits. The trip
from Durban to Newcastle, he says,
was a pleasant one, tne country being
beautilul. There were lots of pice-
apples, bananas and peaches growing
all alone the route. The troops passed
honor   of   E.   W.Thompson,   who   is i through Colenso, where Lord Roberts'
son was killed and Sir Redvers
Buller's focres had the big battle.
They also passed through Ladysmith
from which the scars of the siege have
not yet heen removed. Lord Kitchener
inspected the tioop tlie day before the
letter was written and seemed to be
pleased with the appearance of them.
While en route from Durban he saw

The free Press says ton ight: It was
learned on good autboiity this morning that an American company has
applied to the C.P.R. for sites on
which to erect a nnmber of olevaors
in Manitoba and the Territories. A
number of applications have beeu
made outside of this for sites for era
elevators by private inilividals, but
tllis is a project of larger proportions.
It is stated that the American company
wishes to erect as many as tin elevators in this eountry next year. They
intend to have them completed before
the crop of nexl fall is moved. No
further details are (riven regarding
this scheme but the C.P.R. does not
deny that it has had applications this
year already for sites for 7.1 elevators.
This indicates the interest that
Americans are tailing in the western
country and is another step of what
somo are now calling an American
conquest of western Canada, it IooUb
to many, however, as a Canadian conquest of American capital a3 the
immense benefits that will accrue to
the Canadian west, as a result of the
inilux of Americans hero and of
Amerioan money, cannot be gainsaid.

Manila, April II.���Major Littleton
W.Waller, of the Marine corps, who
is being tried ty court martial on the
charge of the execution of Samar
natives without trial, addressed the
crowdel court today. The major said
he was either right or wrong in his
actions, and added that he desired to
cite five precodents which came under
thc head of his own case. He alluded
to the naval battle at Santiago and
the humanity he had shown the Spaniards who were captured, aud said he
had many letters from Spaniards
thanking him for thu kindness he had
shown them.
Continuing, Major Waller said that
in 1S82 he was with British forces the
in Egypt where Arabs captured the
pickets of the Bengal cavalry, decapitated thc prisoneis, and placed the
heads on poles. Afterwards all the
Arabs who were caught were shot
without trial. During the campaign
in China, the Chinese mutilated the
dead and tortured tho wounded to
death; consequently when a Baser or
a fanatio was captured he wa6 executed immediately without reference.
This was true iu the case of the troops
of every nation iu China. It was true
the three weeds he commanded the
Americans thore, but the same thing
occurred later, when lie was 110 longer
in command. No protest was made
and he had every ight to believe that
his acts were approved so far as the
American forces were concerned. He
knew they were approrveil by those of
tbe othei nations.
It is impossible to conceive such
treachery as that of tbe natives of
Samar, suid tho major. They revel in
blood and have an appetite for wanton
siorilego of the human body. Those
fiends stole Captain Connell's class
ring, filled the soldiers bodies with
jam and jelly, and attempted to murder my command. I shot thorn. 1
honestly thought then that 1 was
right and I believe so now. Neither
my people nor the world will believe
me to bo a murderer.
Captain Arthur T. Mariex, of the
Marine coips, representing Major
Wallet, in a forcible argument, maintained that Waller's actions were justified by martial law, quoting numerous authorities on tho subject. Capt.
Mariex also said he regretted very
much tbat the prosecution had seen fit
to call General Smith. He claimed
that nil thc testimony went lo show
that the major was justified. Tho
judge advocate, Major Henry P.
Kingsbury, of the Third cavalry, will
reply tomorrow.
The press colnmittee has had an
interview with Acting-Governor
Wright with reference to the sedition
law Mr, Wright replied that the
editor of Freedom, who was recently
arrested on the charge of sedition, had
in the columns of that paper, mude
persistent attacks on tho United States
commissioner and that he would now
have to prove his assertions.
Uay nnd SuncUy Schools Will Remain

Kossiand, April 11. ���Dr. Rcddiik,
medical health officer,wil! advise that
schools be kept closed for at least
another week. At present fifteen
houses are quarantined by the authorities and there aro several cases of
children's diseases under suspicion.
The city churchs have agreed to dispense with the Sunday sohools for the

Bnisscls, April 11.���The sitting of
the Chamber of Deouties today was
eharaterized by violent scenes. The
premier,Count De Naoycr, referring to
the deplorable events of yesterday,
said: The appeal of the Socialists tu
thc population prjves that ii is their
avowed plan to continue tne struggle
even after parliament has pronounced
on tho Revision bill. Their aim is the
dethronement of power and tbe triumph of revolution. The government
s resolved that the debite cu the Rc-
/ision bill shall occur in spite of tbe
assertions of the Moniteur Socialiste
to tho contrary.
At this point of lhe premier's
speech, violent altercations which
nearly led to blows, arose among the
deputies of the opposing parties.
Liberals and Socialists engaged in a
sharp discussion concerning the
agreement concluded between them
for the defence of universal suffrage
and M. Deblon, a Socialist, shouted,
"We are betrayed."
At the close of the sitting Socialist
deputies shouting, "Jesuit! Thief!"
stormed the president's tribunal.
Ushers were then summoned to preserve order and a violent scene ensued
in whioh blows were freely
After tho chamber was closed, members of tho Left parly und Socialists
proceeded to the Maieoh du Peuple
with the intention of persuading the
people to cease their demonstration
until next week. The Maison was
surrounded by the civic guard, but a
meeting was permitted to be held
inside. M. Vandervelder and the
other spakers at tho meeting advocated that the peoplo remain calm and
have recourse to a general strike next
woek if the government used force.
As the persons who attended the meeting were dispersing, and in spite of
the precaution of permitting only a
few ol them to leave at oue time, conflicts with the police occurred.
Mounted gendarmes cleared the streets
ard many of the demonstrators fired
their revolvers. During the oourse of
the evening there were several otner
outbreaks in the eity. Tho police
charged the riotors and about 25 persons were wounded and many others
weie aireited. All thoso arrested were
armed with revolvers.
Demonstrations and encounters occurred at Liege, Ghaut and elsewhere,
the most serious being at Uoudeng-
Goegries, in the coal district. During
the collision between the rolice and
strikers at that place, tlic latter usod
brick bats and llrcarmB. The police
fired upon the rioters killing a coal
miner und a young girl. Fifteen persons were wounded including two
policemen. Mounted infantry finally
dispersed the mob,
Troops arc being moved to the vari
ous provincial points wore there ate
disorders. Thc debate on the estimates has been llxcd in the chamber
for next Saturday. The Socialists seem
to fear that the government will rush
the budget and ptoroguo tho chamber
before next Tuesday, the day fixed for
the discussion of the imiveral
suffrage. Tbu civil guard is again
under arms toright and all the police
posts have been doubled.

Germany Makes Concessions to
Austria and Italy.
Berlin, April to.���Bcgatdiog the
conferences held in Vienna anent the
Triple alliance, Count Von Buelow,
the General Imperial chancellor,
said that the Triple alliance will
bo renewed for another term of
years. This news reached Berlin from
Vienna. Count Von Buelow's interview with Emperor Francis Joseph,
Count Goluchowski, the Austro-
Uungarian minister of foreign affairs,
and Dr. Von Koerber, the Austrian
premier, resulted in bringing Austro-
Hungjry into an agreement to which
Italy has already given her adherence. Fresh terms of alliance will be
drawn, embracing some of the concessions that Germany makes to Austria
and Italy. These concessions will
probably relate to trado questions. It
is reported hero that Germany is
really more greatly interested in the
renewal of tho Triple Alliance thau
was indicated by the utterances ol her
minister last January.

London, April 12.���That the fighting continues in South Africa is
shown by a casualty list given out
yesterday which contains the nanus
of a few of the killed and wounded in
the engagements which occurred at
three separate points as late as April
8 and 9, Preparations here continue
for the despatch of 20,000 additional
troops for the winter campaign. Lord
Roberts inspected thc first drafts of
Guards which will sail for South
Africa next week.
London. April II.���The War secretary, Mr. Broderick, informed the
House of Commons today that tho
government had received no < ommnui*
cations from the Hocr leaders regard-,
ing tbe terma of peace, and said lhat
no armistice would be grunted during
the absence of the Hour leaders from
their commands. Mr. Rroderiok was
asked if Lord Kitchener had been
authorized to offer any terms of peace
besides unconditional surrender. Be
replied: "1 am not iu a position to
make any statement, nor am I able (0
add anything to my statement of yesterday regarding the conference between the Boers."
A summons was issued this afternoon for a cabinet meeting tomorrow.
This circumstance started a fresh crop
of rumors to the effect tliat the government bad received a dispatch from
Lord Kitchener on the subject of the
peace negotiations after Mr. Brod-
crick's statement in the House of
Commons this afternoon. Should the
Boers taking part in the conference,
decide in favor of opening peace negotiations they will submit tlieir proposals to Lord Kitchener who has
been Instructed to furwaid them immediately to the government.
Inquiries made toiiight at the war
office by lho Associated Press elicited
that that office knew nothing about
Ihe minors of peace or the alleged
telegram from Lord RobeiU 10 Dover
in which he is reported to have said
tbe war was out.

The sudden calling of a cabinet
meeting and the fact that King
Edward rather unexpectedly terminated his cruise yosterday iu order to
return to- Loudon, convinces peoplo
that something important is pending
and bus led to the most extraordinary
rumors. Among other things it is reported that Mr. Chamberlain, the
colonial secretary, his   resigned. This
is quite untrue. Mr. Chamberlain

mouth of the Skeena rive',would open
up a very valuable country and one
of   more   than   average   possibilities.
The land is suitable for tanning ano
grazing; the salmon fisheries oi the
Skeena are valuable, and the presence
of the railway would result Id the
opening up oi the mines oi that sec-
lion and the area of mining development could be extended by branch
lines built to the richer and more productive portions.
With the terminus oi a transcontinental line at Skeena the trans-l'acilie
voyage eoulo be cut down at least a
day, which would be an important
desideratum, provided the i ail way
line could reduce somewhat the time
in crossing the continent. This wouli
make it the shoitest road to and from
the Orient aud this of itself woula be
an important (actor in attracting
freight and passengers. It does not,
tbereore, lcok unreasonable that tlie
Canada Northern has concluded to
have its terminus at the mouth of the
Skeena river instead of on Bute
I *
On Thursday Tbe Miner published a
statement from Ottawa to the effect
that the Yellowhead l'ass had beeu
abandond by the Oanada Northern iu
favor of tbe Pine River Pass with a
prospective terminus at Skeena. This
wonld bring the Pacific coast terminus at the month of tlie Skeena at a
point 500 miles north of Nanaimo. The
moufn of the Skeena river is wide and
is protected from the ocean hy Smith
and Kennedy islands. According to
the reports of F. O. Vernon, chief
commissioner of land and works, of
surveys made of the crown lands along
the Skeena river and its trib taries
and other nearby rivers the section is
a valuable one il" opened up by a
railway. There are a large number of
good pieces of land heaviiy timbered
along tbe coast, which conld be utilized. They valley of the Skeena with
all its islands, the benches above
Quatsalix. near Hazelton, tbe valley
oi the Kispyox, the uppo" branches,
without counting the valley oi the
Watson-kwa and other portions, the
reports says, after very careful computation, would give B00,U00 acres of
larming land, this more or less wooded. The report continues; The Naas
liver, north oi the Skeena, its islands,
the valleys of its higher branches,
including the valley of the Thi ax, to
the Skeena, niul the prolongation of
the valley lrom the Tsi-ax would give
an approximate area of 700,000 acres
of iarming land. Of this three-fourths
is wooded, and the rest is either
clear or covered with very light thickets. Of the higher land, exposed to
the summer frost, and where wheat
could not be grown, and high pasture
land, there are several scattered areas.
Around Kit-wan-eoolc, the higher
Denches on the upper Skeena and
Naas; the high plateau lying between
thu different branches of the Naas,and
between the watershed and the
Stickeen, can be used as grazing land
and is classified us such. A million
and a half acres would be the true
estimate ol the quantity of grazing
In speaking of the climate tbe same
report says: All of the area west of
the Casoade ; range is damp and
rainy. Near the sea the snowfall is
not great, but at some points np tho
rivers it comes to over six Ieet. After
crossing the range of mountains the
climate gets much drier, but in no
part of the country explored would
irrigation be necessary, unless it
would be in some of the valleys at the
head of tbo Skoot. The climate in
winter about Uuzeltun, which is tho
head uf navigation on the Skeena, 153
BiileB from its mouth, and at the corresponding point on tho Nans, is very
coin, the thermometer sometimes descending to 40 Kareinheit, hut the
eold is not so prolonged as it is east
of the Rockies; there nre always one
or two thaws during tho season. The
depth of snow is over threo ieet.except
on the heights where it is greater.
A great deal of attention has been
paid to the observation of the gardening done by thc Indians,and although
their gardens are cultivated very
poorly,it is easy to see thnt the season
ia about the same as in tho wctt of
the province of Quebec.
As to timber, in no pirt of tho
section bus the timber been found 60
large as would warrant the hope of
future exportation, except , may be,
the giaut cedar aud the spruce, but
everywhere it is sulllcient for every
local use. No doubt the balsam, poplar, aspen,Cottonwood and birch found
there will some dny bo of value for
the manufacture of wood pulp. The
section is strongly mineralized in
placers and gold, galena bearing
silver, quicksilver, coal and other
minerals are plentiful.

event is to be marked by an excursion from Orand Foiks to Republic
to which many guests from the
Kootenays and Yale as well as tbe
section around Kepublie, have been
invited. There will be a banquet at
Wbich speeches will be delivered and
much jubiliation over the event. The
opening of the road is an event in
every way worthy of tlie celebration
which is marking it. It will be the
means oi bringing into Uritish
Columbia for the first time in its history many thousands of tons of ore for
reduction In the smelters here. It
will boDoSt all of the smelters in
Southom llritish Columbia as the
mine owners of Republic and vicinity
will ship tlieir ore to the establishments which grant them the best
terms. The mines of Republic have
been under active development ior the
past five years and the output of ore
should be large. This will be turning the tables on the Americans for
the mine owners of llritish Columbia
have sent large quantities of ore to
the smelter in the States to be reduced
and now somo American ore is to be
brought to this side for treatment so
as to partly balance the account. This
will be of direct benefit to this section
as the monoy paid for the reduction oi
tbe America ore will be disbursed for
Canadian labor and Canadian

The Yale Hotel Company, of Grand
Forks, owned 1,000 acres of land a
short distance from the town through
which the V.V. and E.railway desired
to extend tlie tracks it is building to
Republic. Tho hotel compay de-
mad'ed $00,000 for right of way
through the land and on the refusal
of the railway company to pay that
price an injunction was secured prohibiting it (rom proceeding across the
land with its tracks. The dispute
was com promised,'jit is stated, by the
purchase ot tbe land ..by J J. Hill,
president ot the Great Northern, for
$50,000. Now that tins has been done
the tracks wiil be extended over the
farm and on to Republic, which will
shortly enjoy the benefits oi having
two railways competing for its traffic.
Tho railway people, realizing that tlie
delays would consume the best part of
the woraing season, concluded that it
would be cheaper to purchase tho land
than to allow the ease to drag its way
through the courts and so compromised by paying the $80,000, By
doing this the management doubtless
saved money but still $50,000 is considerable to ply tor a Kettle River
valley farm. John Manly is tbo chief
owner of the stock of tho Yale Hotel
company and will, thorufore get tho
lion's share of the $50,000. This coup
will put him on his financial foet in
good shape, and he doubtless wishes
he had other farms to place in front of
the construction forces of theV., V.
and E.
The beef trust in New York has
become so oppressive lhat evon the
retail butchers aro abo;it to wage war
against it. In order to do this effectively tho retail butchers aro forming
an association and purpose slaughtering cattle on their own account. They
propose to form nn organization for
this purpose with a capital of at least
81,000,000. A pnrtlal canvass has been
made aud thcie are said to bo 25 retailers who can contribute $25,01)0
each toward the stock of the new
company. There are a larger number
who can give 810,000 each and others
who may be jut down tor from $1,000
to $5,000 each.

1     MINING NEWS.     f
J. Frank Collom, managing director j
oi tho Arlington and Speculator properties, returned on Monday from a
tluee weeks' trip to Portland, Ore.
Things bave gouo well wilh the
Arlington of late and Mr. Collom is
feeling jubilant, Ma ch was one of
the b<ist months in the history of the
mine, giving the highest net results
the company has yet had. Though the
tonnage shipped was not vory large,
yet the grade of the mineral sent to
the 6meltor was much higher than
usual. The ore lor tho month averaged upwards of ISO ozs. to the ton,
while one car of 20 tons netted the
company $8,000, and a .'10-ton car
The mine is in excellent shape,
splendid success being met with in the
development of what is known as the
east vein. As this lead is now carrying a well defined wall and none nas
ever heen shown in the main workings on the west vein, the management has come to the conclusion tbat
the banging wall of the zone is that
now being followed on the east vein.
This would give a mineral bearing
zone of about 200 feet or more in
width. The. minerul being found on
the east vein is the first met with in
quantities and iB of extra high grace.
One big bunch lately encountered
gave the phenomenal returns of S.400
Big things may he expeoted of the
Speculator, adjoining the Arlington,
during tho summer. Mr. Collom stated
a hoisting and pumping plant had
been ordered and would be in just as
quickly as tbo roads would permit of
its being hauled up. Sinking would
ttien be resumed on the west vein and
a thorough exploration made of the
lead. A much larger foreo of men
will also be then employed.
The managements of the Speculator
and Arlington, working in sympathy,
are discussing tbe advisability of
prospecting their ledge or ledges with
a diamond drill, and it wonld not be
at all surprising to se6 a drill installed on eaoh property next summer.
It is maintained the cost of development would be greatly reduced.
The prospo>ctus of the Ollala Copper
Mining and Smelting Co., with a capital of $8,000,000 appears in a New
York paper. Tne directors include
several prominent men. The company
was incorporated in October nf last
year for the purpose of completing the
development and equipment of the
extensive properties which the company is saio to own. Among its
possessions are 00 mineral claims, tbe
townsite of Ollala, the charter for the
Similkameen and Keremeos railway
and telegraph and telephone franchises. The proporty is located in the
lower Similkameen valley in Southern
Rritish Columbia.
' Sixty tons of ore were shipped from
Slocan City during the week, 40 from
the Arlington, and 20 from the Enterprise. Bad loads prevonted heavier
shipments from being made. The
tonnage from Slocan City during the
year has been 1,8911 tons. The shipments from the ontiro Slocan for the
year total 7,01"i tons.
The Rosun, says the Slocan Drill,
will ship another 100 tons of zinc to

Some Kootenay and Yale Cases to Be
Heard Next Week.
At the sitting of the fnll bench oi
the Supreme court ot British Columbia, wbich commences at Vancouver
on Tuesday, April 15, the following
appeals will be heard: B. M. Paul
son vs. James Reaman, John Bendri.x
D. Nichols and Christ Kruger. This
action is an adverse with resneot to
the Iron Chief mineral claim in the
Lardo. The plaintiff claims under the
Iron Cnief that the defendants are
attempting to crown grant over the
ground occupied by the Poarl mineral
claim owned by nim. This case was
partially tried at Nelson before Mr.
Justice Martin, when the following
points were decided : First, that it is
not neeessary to survey in order to file
thc affidavits and plan of adverse;
second that an affidavit of adverse
with its jurat not dated,but otherwise
regular, is valid. Postponement of
trial was granted in order to allow
the plaintiff to seoure measurements
of the ground. The appeal is being
entered by the defendant against each
ono of these decisions. Taylor and
O'Shea for the plaintiff; McAnn and
McKay for tbe defense.
N. F. McNaught vs. Balfour and
Co. et al. This action was triea before
Judge Irving at Nelson and was with
respect to sheriff's interpleader. Judgment was given in tavor of plaintiff,
deciding an interesting point in mining law, namely that during the
sheriff's seizure the execution debtoi's
mining certificate ran out.   and Plain
tiff McNnnglit claims that as lie was
the co-owner of the claim that tlie
sheriff lost all right and had nothing
to sell. The execution creditors.
Balfour et al are tho defendants in
the issue. Defendants are now appealing from this judgment. Taylor and
O'Shea for the plaintiff; Elliot and
Lennie and Tupper and Peter, for the
Colbert vs Pettyjohn, an appeal
from Orand Fork. Tbe plaintiff is
owner of a large fruit ranch. To get
the water needed for irrigating his
ranch it was necessary to bring it
from the opposite side of tlie mountain
on which the ranch is situated. To
Uo this it was necessary for the ditch
to enler American territory and then
reenter Canada, the ranch adjoining
the boundary. Defendant Pettyjohn,
believing ibis to ho illegal destroyed
the plaintiff's ditch, and suit was
then entered hy the plaintiff for an
injunction and for damages and also
for a declaration that in any event
that tne water record was valid even
if the ditch was illegal. Judgment
was given by Judge Spinks of the
County court, for the defendant, and
the plaintiff is now appealing. Taylor
and O'Shea for plaintiff. Tupper and
Peters lor defendant.
In re Florida Mines Company���This
appeal is against the order made by
Mr. Justice Irving at Nelson ordering
the winding up of this company on
the petition of one of the shareholders. The company ia appealing
from the order, contending that a
shareholder can not compel a winding
up under the British Columbia Winding I'd Aet, as tbat act provides for
voluntary and not a compulsory winding up. Three other appeals in this
matter were heard during the last
court iu each of whieh the company
was successful in reverting the order
of Mr. Justice Irving. Taylor and
O'Shea for the company; Wheallcr
and Wragge for petitioning shareholder.
Tobiason vs. Grand Forks Mereai-
tile Company.��� Tbls action was tried
at Orand Forks before Judge Leamy.
and is a suit on a bond given for
security for costs on a' former appeal
in this matter. The defendantts are
aptealiog and contend that this boud
was satisfied by the goods in dispute
in the action having heen accepted hy
thc plaiutiff subsequent to the former
appeal; also contending that a bond
for security whioh the registrar of the
court settled contrary to the direction
of tbe judge, is null and void. II. S.
Cay ley for tne plaintiff, Taylor and
O'Shea foi the defendants.
Marino vs. Sproat and Mclnnes.
This is a ease arising in New Denver
and the defendants are appealing from
the judgment of Mr. Justice Irving
given at Nelson. During the trial
many important documents the plaintiff claiuie ' that he had lost or never
had. The defendant subsequent to the
trial instituted detective proceedings
to ascertain the truthfulness ol the
plaintiff's contention of tno tiial and
claims to havo got practically all
of the documents which the plaiutiff
claimed that he had not iu his possession. They are now moving to upset
the judgment on these grounds,
Elliott and Lennio for the plaintiff,
Taylor and O'Shea for the defendants.
Oppenheimer vs. ilraokman and
Ker.���Judgment was given in Nelson
in tbis n att r by judge and jury for
tbe defendant on counter claim based
upon the plaintiff's breach of contract
in not delivering hay. Tho plaintiff
is now appealing, contending that the
contract is aull and void because
of Brackman and Ker's acceptance of
contract���plaintiff's offer contained
paragraphs other than what referred
to the terms of the original offer.
Tllis anneal arises from the new trial,
the first trial being iu favor of the
plaintiff but reversed on appeal on
tho point that is now going to appeal.

Patients Drink Contrary to Doctors' Orders
Had food habits hurt the habitue
and sometimes affects others. A
mother was in such a miserable oondition from coffee drinking that when
her baby was bom��� but let her tell
hot own tale.
"I steadily grew worse. When
baby was born it was a skeleton of
mere bones and so weak and puny
that its little Iito soon flickered out.
I had been suffering for several years
with stomach trouble and nervous
diseases, the doctor said ' brought ou

At times I wonlU swell up udMI 1
could hardly breath, put I poohed
whon the doetoi told me coffee was
the cause of it all. Why I had used
colfee for years without seeing that it
did me any harm, go the silly idea of
a fogey doctor was not going to make
me give up my favorite beverage and
1 kept on using it nn the sly unknown
to him, while he gave me every sort of
tonio and pills to attempt to cure me
and got my nerves in a healthy
After baby's death I was suik in
bed and the doctor insisted on keeping colfee away from me. He put me
on Postum Food Coffee and iirupe-

relished the lirst cup of fragrant,
black I'ostum and how good the
Grape-Nuts with cream tasted, and,
as if by magic, I began to sleep all
night for the tirst time in months.
Slowlv I began to gain in strength
and llesh, and my mind began to clear
up, My stomach gave me no pain,
and tho doctor was giently surprised
at the change caused by the food and
drink and pleasantly named them the
'magic nerve restorers'for he says they

The conditions existing on the city

freight to and from the steamers
Moyie, Kokanee and International
were being transferred was most dangerous. There were eleven teams with
wagons all crowded together on the

were moving back or forward when
the passengers were passing, if a runaway or stampeae had occurred tbe
consequences would undoubtedly have
been most disastrous.

day night with the presentation of
Shakespeare's sublime tiagedy " King
Lear'1 whieh many critics contend is
Frederick Wardo s      masterpiece.
Though one of the most impressive of
Shakespeare's plays "King Lear" has
boen seldom played because few actors
are equal to the task. 11 requires a
genius to master "King Lear." in
the performance Saturday night Mr.
Warde will be seen as Lear, Air.
Charles Ilermau as Edmund, Mi.
Barry Johnstone as Edgar, Miss May
Warde (Frederick Wurdo's youngest
daughter) as Cordelia,Miss Antoinette
Ashton as Regan and Miss Virginia
Drew Tiescott as Uoneril. The scenic
production of "King Lear" is one of
the heaviest in Mr. Wardo's lepertoire
and the groat storm scene is said to be
one of the most inspiring aud realistic
eifeets ever accomplished in the legitimate drama.
This engagement will bo an event
in the history of the theatre in Nelson
and it will be due to tbe push and
enterprise of our local manager that
the treat is offered.

Frederick Warde to Appear in Nelson
For Threo Nights.
Arrangements have been completed
by Mr. Annable,manager of tho Opera
house, by which Frederick Warde,
the eminent aetor, and his distinguished company will positively
appear in Nelson for three ni nts
commencing, Thursday, April 17th.
To accomplish this Mr. Annable has
been compelled to assume a heavy
responsibility, but he claims that he
has no fears for the results as he feels
���hat Nelson and the surrounding
country will give him liberal support.
The engagement will begin on
Thursday night with the production
of D'Bnnory's romantic drama
"Belphegor, The Mountebank." This
play is one of the most striking types
of the grand old romantic school and
was originally played in Kngland hy
tho famoHB English actor Charles
Dillon. The character of The Monte-
bank runs the whole gamut of human
passioD and emotion and it requires a
thoroughly versatile and experienced
artist to do it justice. Mr. Warde is
said to ne great in tho part and his
company is admirably adapted to the
various other roles. The scenes oi the
play are laid in France and afford
some excellent opportunities for handsome stage settings.
Friday night tho hill will be
Shakespeare's historical tragedy
"Julius Caesar," which is said to be
one of the gems of tho Warde repertoire because the three central figures
of the story ure so excellently acted.
Mr. Warde will appear as Mare
Antony, Mr. Charles D. Herman as
Brutus, Mr. Barry Johnstone as
Cassius, Miss Antoinette Ashton as
Portia, wife of Brutus, and Miss
Virginia Drew Treseott as Ceasor's
wife, Calphurnia, This production
scenically is also complete and is exceedingly interesting.

*&____*!___ Wo want afew more -wl-ors in this
|j "-"Hir locality, at once, and in order to secure
| your co-operation without the delay of
correspondence, we herewith explain
our full plan in this advertisement.
The work is simple, and the Machine
Is easily operated, and with the Guide,
requires no teacher. If you wish to
join our staff of Workers let us hear
promptly with the Contract, order form
mlttance, as a guarantee, and we will
maohlne and outfit to begin work at once
We wish to secure the services ot families to do knitting
for us ln their homes. Our method ls the same as adopted.
In England. We are the Introducers of this plan and tlie
largest   knitting   concern  in  Canada.
After long experience, we havo been able to produce an
Aulomatlo Machine by which all kinds of seamless knitting is now done by our Family Machine, thereby enabling
anyone of ordinary Intelligence to quickly learn to do the
work from the Instruction Guide. All we require is that
you use the maohlne according to directions. The Machine
being made expressly for this purpose, and the operation
so   simple,   lt   cannot possibly make a mistake In its work.
Thc gnat demand now is for Bicycle Stockings, Wood-
men's Socks, and Motormen's Mittens, and us we are unable So supply the demand, have taken this method of advertising  for  more help. .   -     ,.   ,
The largo export trade to the Nnrth-west Territories.
British Columbia, and the British Colonies, furnishes an unlimited demand for our goods, and, with tho combined cooperation of the many families we are employing, together
With the large amount of knitting we are able to turn out,
bv which we save rents, Insurance, Interest on capital, etc..
enables us to undersell any manufacturers of this class of
goods, and we have sale for all the knitting we can have
turned out.
The price we pay for finished bicycle stockings is $10.1)0
per hundred, or at the rate of Mc per pair; woodmen's
porks, 5c, and motormen's mittens, 12c a pair. All other
work   in   proportion   to size.
The machine can be operated by any one of a family,
and at our prices any energetlo family should he able to
sustain themselves comfortably, and ln time be a source of
Independent   comfort.
Our plan ls to send out each machine to beginners with
a seek or stocking partially knitted, and remaining in the
machine ready to be continued, and also enough yarn to
knit one pair of sample socks or stockings and a simple
and complete Instruction Guide, showing how the work Is
to be done t When the samples have been finished and
returned to us satisfactory, we send a quantity of /am,
which yon knl* and return likewise when finished We
prepay charges on all work one way, and our workers pay
return charges. The work, as we have stated, is simple and
rapidly done, the machine having a capacity of ten thousand stitches a minute. We have many persons now ln our
employ who can knit from twenty-five to thirty pairs of
socks or stockings a day, and where the time of a family
Is devoted to the work, you can readily see that $15.00 or
$20.00 per week can be easily earned.
We furnish our workers all tho materials, yarn, etc.,
free, and everything that ls necessary for the work. We
are furnishing the machines only for the exclusive use of
those desiring to take employment with us, who must, in
order to become a member, send us this Contract Order
Form, properly signed by them, and at least one good reference, and remittance accordingly, to give us the necessary
assurance that the quantities of valuable yarn we may send
from time to time will not be wasted or misappropriated.
Our Interests are mutual, and this confidence must be established if we are to succeed. We guarantee fair dealing
nnd prompt payment for work, so do not ask us to deviate
from our terms, as we cannot make a distinction with one
nnd not another: besides, we arc doing an exlenslva busi'
neon,  and must be  governed hy business  principles.
Tho manufactured price of the machine ls $15, end positively will not be sold to any others than those who will
agree to do knitting for ub.
Tf at any tlmo after you commence, and have done an
amount of work equal to the purchase price, and wish to
discontinue, we will take back machine ami refund the
amount paid for same, after deducting cost of our expense only.
There ls a Tjarge Demand by the Trade for this class
of work. Our workers can depend upon It year after year,
and tf you engage with us (whole or spare time) we will
keep you supplied with work as long as you do it satisfactorily for us and return it promptly. We entrust our workers with large quantities of valuable yarn,  and as we give
references as to our honesty and Integrity, we must fl.'k
you to do the same, In order that wo may know with whom
we  are  dealing.
We have, In as brief a manner as possible, endeavored
to show vou what our work Is. and we simply sav as to the
machine, It Is just what we represent it to be, and will port-
tlve y do everything we clnitn tor It, or refund the money.
Each machine, securely packed wilh an outfit, ls set up tor
work, thoroughly tested, and a sock or stocking partially
knitted before boxing nnd shipping. Should you decide to
engage with us, it will be necessary to send us Cash Con-
tract Order Form, properly signed by you, and at least one
good reference, together wilh the remittance, accordingly,
upon receipt of which we will forward machine and outfit
ready  to  commence. Respectfully yours,

Tf you wish, to examine the machine and see the material before undertaking the work, you can do so l>y
sending $a.00 as a guarantee of good faith, and to defray
expense of shipping, and we will send everything to your
nearest express company, leaving a balance of twelve
dollars to pay the agent and 25 cents for the return charges
on the money to us.
We are so frequently and unnecessarily  asked if one enn
learn to knit without a teacher.     We say,  Yes; it regains
no  teacher; any person   of   ordinary    intelligence  who  can
read the Instruction Guide can learn  to knit at once.
