NEW YUKON LAW.     3
Police   Magistrate! Will   Have   Same
Powers as   in Ontario.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)

Hon. I>. Mills moved the second reading of a bill to amend the Yukon territory act and to make further provision for the administration of justice
in the said territory. Ho said tbe
bill was purely administrative. The
bill proposed to give police magistrates the same powers of summary
jurisdiction as were possessed by magistrates in Ontario.
High Russian Circles Greatly

Disturbance.
A   NEW   FREIGHT   TARIFF
NEW   SCHEDULE   ON   C. P. R. BETWEEN OWANOGAN VALLEY
AND NELSON.
EXPECTED TO   MAKE   MATERIAL
DIFFERENCE I�� VOLUME OF
BUSINESS.
The C, P. R. freight department is
distributing copies of a new tariff
between the Okanagan valley and Nelson, which is expected to make a very
material difference in the volume of
business between the Kootenays and
the section that is frequently described as the garden of the province. The
Okanagan valley is famous for the
quantity and quality of the vegetables
and small fruit raised by its ranchers,
and the fact has been notorious that
the percentage of these products marketed in the Kootenays has been infinitesimal heretofore, although a
glance at the map will indicate that
the natural market for the products
of the Okanagan lies in the district of
which Nelson, is the distributing
center. While tho ranchers have
shipped their produce east and west on
the mainline of the C.P. It., extending
tbeir operations as fir into the territories as Regina, practically none of
the output has come to this section;
and the Kootenays have depended upon pioducts of the Palouse and Col-
ville Valley for their supply, even in
seasons when the crops were heaviest
in the Okanagan country. The rea
son for this has been ascribed to the
fact that the C. P. R. charges for
goods shipped to Nelson were so large
that no margin was left for tbe ranchers after they had cut their prices to
meet the competition from the south.
Apparently the railroad people have
risen to the situation and are determined to give the Okanogan ranchers
such concessions in rates as will enable the road to secure a slice of the
fruit carrying trade, which is now
practically a monopoly for the N. A
F. S., tapping the American fruitgrowing sections. The new C. P. R.
schedule is figured on a basis which
will permit the ranchers to delivei
their product in Nelson at a small advantage over the American producers,
exclusive ot the charges for customs
and examination which gives the Canadians a further advantage. It now
remains to be seen whether tlie new
schedule will answer the purpose of
inducing the Okanagan growers to
ship Into the Kootenays. The new
rates are effeotive on the 20th Inst.,
but the shipping season does not commence for several months. A representative of the Kelowna Shippers'
association was in the city recently
for the purpose of opening a connection with the local produce men, and
this gentleman is expected to return
a few weeks hence to go Into the matter further.
A DELICATE POINT.
U. S. Government Will Have to Admit
Britain's Conquest.
Washington, Marcli 19.���The status
of the Transvaal or Orange Free State
in the eye of the government of the
United States probably will be for the
first time fixed when a consul-general shsll be sent out to Pretoria to
succeed Adclbert S. Hay, who haB just
returned to Washington on leave of
absence but without the purpose to go
back to Pretoria. It is said that so
far as known there has been absolutely no official declaration ou thut
joint.

St. Petersburg, March 18.���Alarm
pervades high circles here. The police
have notified house owners to have
their dvorniks or house police report
for duty and hold themselves in constant readiness. A sot-ia,or company,
of Cossacks passed the Moscow gate
this morning on their way to Tsars
koeselo, 17 miles south of St. Petersburg to whicli place the czar bas just
removed. The police said they would
escort the czar back to the winter palace and that he would return by car
riage instead of by rail. It appears
probable, however, that the Cossacks
were merely sent to Tsarskoeselo as
a precaution, since his majesty ii
more easily protected there than here.
It Is apparently confirmed that three
students were killed yesterday. The
Cossacks rode into the crowds oh the
sidewalk and many laces were cut
open by their knotted whips. Students and working men threw rubber
shoes, canes and snow balls at the
Cossacks. It is reported that one Cossack was killed. An official of the
political police said 1,000 prisoners
were takeu, among them being 350
women students.
The presence of working men among
the -rioters rendered tho demonstration
more dangerous than any known in a
generation. After reading the manifesto, the students threw their crumpled copies into the crowd and raised
a flag inscribed, "For liberty." The
students also shouted, "Help us get
our rights" and the mob responded
with cheers.
The Official Messenger which published a report of recent disorders in
various Russian cities and of Sunday's
outbreak in St. Petersburg, says of
the latter: "When the crowd, num-
ering 3,000, became turbulent the
Cossacks and police were summoned.
The demonstrators retreated to the
cathedral of Our Lady of Kasan, pelting the Cossacks and polio* with various missiles. Tbe students a'tempted to- display red and white flags
bearing various inscriptions. The
crowd came into violent collision with
the Cossacks and police. A portion
retired Into the cathedral although
Bervices were going on, behaving noisily and smoking cigarettes until ejected. Altogether 339 male students, 377
women, mostly students and 44 other
persons were arrested. A police commissioner with 20 policemen, four Cossacks and thirty-two rioters, male and
female, were wounded."
RUSSIA IS HAUGHTY.
Won't Discuss   Munchurian   Matter-
Thinks England's Hands Full.
St. Petersburg, Maroh 19.���Answering a question of the correspondent of
the Associated Press, a competent
official today said: "It is not true
tbat Russia has yielded to the representations of any of the powers and
has modified her demands respecting
Manchuria, because no representations
were made. Every tentative move to
address the Russian government on
the Bubject of our "pour purlers"
with China has been categorically declined. Russia is a great power and
has no right to hold negotiations
with any other government and no
other power has a right to Interfere.
Soundings made in a friendly spirit
have received a friendly answer. Hut
plainly stated, Russia "cannot receive
inquiries regarding the above 'pour
parlors.' "
The informant of the correspondent
of the Associated Press admitted
thut the power rebuffed was Great
Britain. He was not willing to discuss details respecting Monoglia and
Turkestan, but lie repeated that Russia abides by the August declaration
and desires to safeguard thu railroad
and her thousand kilometre long
frontier.
The informant of the correspondent
ridiculed the talk of a military conflict at Tien Tnin. He suid: "There
is a misunderstanding about certain
lands which the English authorities
pretend belong to the railway company. Russia has expressed her willingness to examine the question. If
the claim of ownership before the Russian occupation is established, that
will end the discussion. If diplomacy
is Unable to settle the controversy,
Russia is willing to submit it to arbitration, perhaps to tbe Hague tribunal or to some other arbitrator.
"After England captures Dewet,
perhaps she will have the courage for
a military conflict In another quarter
of the world. While he is promenading around the   British forces, it is

she loaded a thousand tons of coal,

IN A QUANDARY.
(Special to The Minor.)
Victoria, B. C, March 19.���
There are evidences that the
government is iu a quandary iu
regard to its position on the
railway matters now before the
house. A section of government
supporters backed by united opposition insisted on proceeding
with the consideration and passing the preamble of tbo charter
for .laffray's railroad yesterday,
although the government was
anxious to defer it. Today no.
sitting of the railway committee
was held, the government convening a caucus of itB supporters
instead, when the whole railway policy was talked over, although results were not disclosed.
The house took up almost the
entire afternoon in committee on
placer mining and other bills.
The adjourned debate was also
resumed on the school  bill.
PROVISIONS OF
SCHOOL BILL
CONVENT  IS   DEDICATED
A MOST IMPRESSIVE AND INTERESTING CEREMONY YESTERDAY MORNING.
IT WAS WITNESSED BY A LARGE
GATHERING OF THE
CITIZENS.
The formal dedication of the convent and chapel of the Sisters of St:
Joseph yesterday morning was a most
impressive and interesting ceremony,
The ceremony was witnessed by a
large gathering of citizens who crowded the chapel and overflowed into the
community room adjoining. Bishop
Dontenwill had arrived on the previous evening and occupied a throne in
the chapel where tho proceedings opened. From there a procession was
headed by his lordship, wearing the
mitre and sacerdotal lobes and carrying tbe crozier. He was accompanied
by Father Ferland and an acoylyte,
ten sisters of St. Joseph following.
The procession moved to the various
rooms, the Bisters chanting the Mis-
crera. As each apartment was reached his lordship pronounced a blessing.
Returning to the chapel, the bishop
celebrated the episcopal mass, assisted by Father Ferland. A choir formed
of the sisters sang tbe mass of tbe
Annunciation and rendered the Ave
Marie as an offertory.
Bishop Dontenwill delivered an
eloquent exhortution to tbe assemblage. He pointed out tbe extent of
the sacrifice made by the Sisters, who
had renounced everything to give
their services to the work of educating tbe young and ministering to the
sick, going at some length into the
history of the Sisterhood and explaining the objects and methods of their
labor. In the course of the address
the audience was. urged to assist the
Sisters with their sympathy and with
the practical lfolp they required to
make their work tbe success It should
be. His lordship remains in the city
a week to conduct a retreat for several of the Sisters, who are preparing
to take their final vows in the order.
This ceremony will proba'bly take
place on the 25th instant.
The convent and school that has
now been occupied by tho Sisters of
St. Joseph for a month or six wec'.ts
is a decided acquisition to the city's
educational facilities. Tba building is
well constructed, neatly finished and
well arranged. The class rooms are
roomy, well lighted and heated and
ventilated on an excellent system.
The dormitories for the accommodation of boarding pupils are comfortable and arranged with a view to securing the best results from the
standpoint of discipline among tho
students.
Tho pride of the building, however,
Is the chapel, a handsome apartment
on tho second story. It is intended to
be the center of the devotional life of
tbe Institution and has been planned
with a view to tho ornamental. The
roof is vaulted and the altar Is a
work of art. Over the altar is a life
size crucifix and to the right and left
arc statuettes of St. Anthony nnd St.
Cecelia, all tbree the gift of a friend
of the convent. Over the entrance is
a choir loft in which the convent choir
is located when services are being
held. The floor Is stained and the
pews of neat design. Altogether the
chapel is an attractive reproduction of
an ordinary church interior.
Tlie work of the Sisters has been
most successful since their location
in the city and it is safe to predict
that in tho admirably designed building now at their disposal the usefulness of the order will be materially
enhanced.
School Trustees Will Protest
Against Property Qualification Clause.
Board of Trade Will Discuss
- the Matter Tomorrow
Night.
Opinion in Nolson   is divided   as  to
their demands arc not complied
with. The mines are worked by tho
worst class of convicts and among
those who bave mutinied arc twenty
life prisoners. Warden Tomlinson
has refused to grant their demands.
Many complaints Jhave been made
by thu prisoners because of the grade
of food furnished them, and to this
dissatisfaction have been added allegations of mistreatment. No out-
brcsk was attempted, however, until
the men who hud entered the mine
refused to return until their demands
should be granted. They killed the
mules used In the mincs'und are living on this meat. Finally the con-
viots surrendered.
MODIFICATION SUGGESTED.
In   th
No   Popery   Oath"���Matter
Discussed in Parliament.
London, March 19.���In the house of
Lord Salisbury referring
raised by   the   "No
lords today,
to   the   question
the merits of several of the provisions j popery Oath" takon by the" King, said
of the school bill now before the legis- be must regret very much that Ian-
lature.    Yesterday draft eupies of  the | K"ago of   such   indecent violence  had
bill were received from Smith Curtis,
M. L. A., by the city cleric, and tbe
school trustees and the board of trade.
Mr. Curtis requested the recipients to
go through the measure and wire their
opinions as to its effectiveness.
The trustees met, a resolution
was prepared for submission to tho
legislature by the city council and
the council of the board of trade will
meet tomorrow night lo take action.
A difference of opinion exists as
to the bill between the trustees and
the council, and their recommendations to the legislature do not agree
on some points. Tbe principal sections of the proposed bill that appear
to cause a division are clauses 7 and
14, reading as follows:
"7.���In City school districts, any
person being the registered owner iii
the land registry office, of land or real
property in bucIi city school district
of the assessed value on the last municipal assessment roll,of five hundred
dollars or more over and above any
registered incumberance or charge,
aud being a British subject of tbe full
age of . tw8��ty-ori'> years, and otherwise qualified by this act to vote at an
election of school trustees in the Baid
city school district.sball be eligible to
be elected or to serve as a school
trustee in said city school district.
The provisions of this sub-section
shall not-govern the qualifications of
any trustees at any election held before the first day of April, 1901. "
To these property qualifications the
trustees have entered a protest on the
ground that the conditions are such as
to prevent in some instances citizens
who are to all intents and purposes
qualified from offering themselves
for election as trustees because of technical reasons.
The other section under discussion
relates to the financing of tbe school
board as constituted under the bill,
and reads: "The board of trustees
shall ou or before the first day of February In each year, cause to be prepared and laid before the city council
a detail estimate of the sums required
during the current year for the purposes set forth in section 3ti hereof,
which sums the council shall forthwith order to be paid over from time
to time as required, upon the order
of the trustees, by the city treasurer,
to the several persons or corporations
for whose use such moneys are payable: Provided that, if the Baid estimates shall include a sum or sums required for tlie purchase of lands or
buildings for school purposes, or for
the erection or enlargement of school
buildings, which cannot be provided
out of the annual revenue of tbo city,
it shall be the duty of the council, on
or before the first day of April, to
submit for assent of the electors In
the manner prescribed by seotion OH of
the 'Municipal Clauses Act,' a by law
authorising the council to borrow said
sum or sums on the credit of the
municipality; and in the event of
such bylaw receiving the assent of
the electors in the manner set forth
In sections 75 and 79 of the 'Municipal Clauses Act,' the city treasurer
shall pay out of the proceeds of the
debentures so authorized to be issued
all expenses connected with tbe issuance ofsaid debentures, slid the balance thereof shall be paid out in the
manner hereinbefore in this section
provided, for the purposes specified in
said by-law."
The trustees support this clause, but
the council do not see eye to eye
with them.
A resolution was prepared on the
subject aud will be forwarded to the
capital. Tbe nature of tha resolution
Is intended to impress upon the legislature the necessity of having the
city counoil represented upon the
Bchool board in order that the expenditure on education may be adjusted
consistently with the necessary expenditure in other channels and with
tile civic revenue.
CONVICTS ON STRIKE.
Took
Possession   of   Coul   Mine    in
Kansas.
Leavenworth, Kas.. March 19.���In
tho Kansas state pentltentiury coul
mine at Lansing, 231 prisoners who
went down into the mine ou Monday
morning, have mutinied und aie
holding fifteen guards as hostages.
I'lic.v refuse to'let the guards come to
the surface until Warden Tolminson
promises to give them better food.
They   threaten to  kill  the guards  if
over been planed in the King's antl-
Itomnn 'lutholic oath, but If it was
modified or repealed, a great many
people, perfectly sincere though not
very wise, would say that such action meant supporting Iran-substantiation. He proposed on behalf of the
government that a committee be appointed to consider the declaration
required for the sovereign on his
accession and to determine whether
its language could be modified advantageously without diminishing its
efficiency as security for the maintenance of tlie Protestant succession,
Tho matter will be considered Thurs
day.
CHAPLEAU   ON  ITS FEET
ALL THE   EXECUTIONS   AGAINST
THE MINING COMPANY ARE
WITHDRAWN.
THE   WHOLE   ARRANGEMENT   IS
REGARDED AS   BEING MOST
SATISFACTORY.
The flrat payment of 310,000 by the
Chapleau Consolidated on account of
the obligations incurred by the company has been received and as a result
all the executions'obtained against
the company have been withdraw!!.
R. S. Lennie, legal representative of
tho Chapleau, received the funds by
cable together with a message stating
that the balance, about as much
more, would be forthcoming in good
time before the extension of 00 days
expires. The money hud been banked
to the credit of R. S. Lennie and A.
M. Johnson, as trustees for the creditors, and will be disbursed immediately. The remittance is equal to 50 cents
on the dollar of tbe liabilities, and
the whole arrangement is regarded as
most satisfactory, particularly as tbe
Chapleau people are apparently about
to continue their operations in this
district on a larger scale than formerly.
The increase in the capitalization
pending is understood to be for tbe
purpose of acquiiing other mineral
land and for the development of the
same. G. L. R. Weyl, the Chaplcau's
financial agent, left this morning for
France. He is making the trip in
the way of a holiday and also for the
purpose of laying the exact condition
of affairs here before the directors.
Mr. Weyl is also manager of the Rossland Proprietory company,which owns
an addition to the Rossland townsi-tc
that contains mineral veins supposed
to be valuable.
GERMANS  AFTER   BUSINESS.
Berlin, March 19. -The Reichstag
has agreed to the proposal of the
budget committee to include in the
next.budget a credit for 20,000 marks
towards instituting chambers of commerce abroad, although Baron Von
Dicbthoff, the foreign secretary, deprecated their institution, declaring
that if the establishment of such
chambers in America would be of any
appreciable value, Great Britain
would long since have established
them.
RUSSIA'S   CONCESSIONS.

tbe clause granting her exclusive privileges in Mongolia and Turkestan and
also to modify various other clauses

WU'S   PUILOSOHPY.
Chinese Diplomat's   Eloquent Defence
of Chinese Civilization.
Chicago, III.. March Hi. ���Wit Ling
Fang, Chinese minister to the United
States delivered the convocation address of the University of Chicago at
the student's theatre this afternoon
before the faculty of the institution
and an audience that packed the theatre to the doors. Mr. Wu took for his
subject, "Chineso Civilization." His
defence of civilization of bis native
country in comparison with that of
the civilization of Hie Occident waa
much applauded.    He said:
"True it is that China's Isolation
has served to strengthen the nation's
character and give it u marked individuality, but this has not been gained without great losses, The most
serious is that the nation has not
been able to profit by the trials, experiences, and achievements uf the
rest of the world. This is especially
true with regard to scientific knowledge und mechanical Inventions. K
must be admitted that today China is
centuries behind the age in her knowledge of chemistry, electricity, steam
navigation, rapid transit and other
arts und sciences. But docs civilization consist of railroads, telegraphs,
telephones, electric lights, battleships, rapid lire gnus, magazine rifles
antl a thousand and one things which
are regarded as necessary for a pro-
gtessive nation'.' This would lie a
very narrow Interpretation of the
word. Civilization has, 1 believe, a

THE POLL TAX.
s?!S��*��ass^^iSSr_rs
pedtenvy uf providing some measure
of relief from the conditions which
ars now operating so harmfully'.'
The on'y thing wrong about the proposal q'f the government in   regard   to
tho increase of poll tax is that provision is not made in the act for the   exemption of those who pay ten   dollars
or more per annum of taxation in other forms.    The present   system   under
which   non-property   holders     escupe
with a tax for all purpose- of  only ?:i
per annum is a childish   arrangement
which no  one   could   expect   to  continue.    In   tho   territories   east    and
south   of   British   Columbia   personal
taxation amounts to about 8s per  annum and nearly every   man   pays  it,
whereas in British   Columbia the rate
has been heretofore S3   and   nearly 50
per cent of  the   qualified   voters   and
many Wbo are not voters evade il.    In
almost all   parts of America men contribute the equivalent of two days labor per annum to the  roads fund���besides school���and county rates of various kinds.
Many persons forget  that in British
Columbia outside of   city   and   township   municipalities    tbe    provincial
government   assumes     tbe    functions
that devolve upon county   municipalities in other countrios.    The province
collects all  taxes and   provides foi all
branches of  public   service, local,   us
well us   provincial.    The   chief injustice at present is   this.    Hint the government   collector   of poll tax (generally   paid   by     commission)     collects
promptly and ruthleSBly from business
men   and   property   holder,   who are
easily got at,and neglects to collect at
all from the salaried man who is, perhaps, much   better   able to   pay,   but
who, having   no office or   fixed domicile is able to give the collector   more
trouble than the 15   cents commission
is worth.    The   man who is liable   to
the government   for   hundreds of dollars   in   other   forms of   taxation,   is
compelled   to pay bis poll tax on   the
3rd of January,    The   gentleman   unencumbered with   property dodges the
collector a few times   and is then forgotten.    An   annual   revision   of   the
provincial voteis' list and   the   exclusion   therefrom   of   all   non-property
owners who fail to produce a poll tax
receipt for the current year   would be
a measure of substantial justice. Taxation without   representation   is  vicious.   Is the reverse principle less so.'

1 MORTGAGE  SALEf
RefelSTER*-!
Of valuable property across the Lake from the City of Nek**, known as
SQUIRE'S   POINT.
������������������������������
Pursuant to aTowcr of Sale contained in a certain Indenture of Mortgage madei by Fred ].
The Miner was called upon to make
the disheartening  announcement yesterday   morning   that   the  Highland
mine   at.Alniworth   has   practically
closed down, this course of action be
ing necessarrowing   to existing con
ditions making it impossible   for   the
property to be worked st a profit.   No
one who has tbe true   interests of the
country at heart can view   with   com-
posure this alarming situation. Some-
th.ng must be done and   that   at once
if the mining   industry in    this rrov-
inc. is not   to  be   completely  stilled
and   rendered   a   thing of   the   past.
rhe industry, instead  of  thriving, as
,t ought to do with  such   magnificent
opportunities as we know it possesses,
is steadily   and rapidly   diminishing.
This is a   disagreeable   conclusion   to
arrive   at,   but we shall never   secure
tlie prosperity   we ought to enjoy unless we are willing to   look   facts   in
the face, and   set to work   to   remove
the causes which hinder our progress.
We have in   British Columbia one  of
t,hemost   valuable   mineral   countries'
in the   world,   containing  the northerly extension of a mineral belt which
has produced enormous   wealth in the
United    States.     Experts    ore     all
agreed   that   a   sufficient evidence already   exists to warrant   us   In   concluding that our   mineral lands will,
upon   development , yield   similar results.   The   mining industry of British    Columbia   depends very   largely,
for Its future success, upon  the introduction of foreign capital in order   to
aecure development of the mines.   The
experience of the last years hus taught
us that the development of a prospect,
uo   matter   how   promising,    into    a
mine, requires an expenditure of from
��50,000to   8100.000 at   the very   least.
The   scarcity   of   roads,   the cost  of
transportation, the   expense of neces-
__ry machinery   and the high price of
all articles of consumption  effectively
prevents tbe   prospector from opening
'    ���p a  mine without  the aid   of   capital     Foreign capital has almost ceased 'to flow into tbe   mines   of   Hritish
Columbia.    If   anyone     doubts    this
statement let Lira consult those whose
business it is   to   procure   capital for
any mining purpose,   whether for the
purchase of a  mineral   claim,   or   for
shares in companies which are operating good properties, or, most convincing of all, let   him   make a   personal
effort to obtain capital  for any   given
mining project and   he will soon real-
J_ethe   truth   of   the   above   general
.tatement.    Prospectors   and companies alike   have   been   losing   heart in

THE COAL SUPPLY.
To the Editor,���Every smelter in
Hritish Columbia depending upon the
Crow's Nest Pass coal fields has Buffered from lack of coke, yet this company, under the pretence of being able
to supply a surplus, are asking for a
railway charter to carry away a commodity that should be kept here . to
supply home consumption.
The charge had been openly made
that the Crow's Nest Pass coal fields
could not supply the home demand.
Wiry did the representatives of "Jim"
Ilill, under the guise of delegates
from "Associated Board a of Trade,"
in convention at Greenwood, positively refuse to hear the representatives
of the smelting Interests? Mr. A. C.
Flumracrfelt, of the (jrsnby smelter,
was prepared to produce incontrovertible evidence that the Crow's Nest coal
fields could not supply the local demand for coke. Put the "Associated
Hoards of Trade" were not looking
for that kind of Information. Th.y
had already determined to barter
away the nations' heritage and did
not court investigation as to the justice of their act.
The fact that Mr. J. B. McArthur
is manilesting an undue interest in
the welfare of Mr. "Jim" Hill Is not
the least of the many reasons why
Hill Bhould not be granted the charter. McArthur belongs to that class
of men, who, for the sake of personal
gain, would obliterate the International boundary line.
Every ton of Canadian coal in tho
bowels of the earth contributes toward our national assets, and coal
more than any other commodity is
valuable, inasmuch as it is an essential requisite in the development of
manufactures. Denuded of her coal,
Canada is powerless lo compete with
the outside world as a producer or
manufacturer. There may be an inexhaustible supply in the unexplored
coal areas, but until it is known that
there is a vast surplus of this commodity, it is desirable that we provide ogainst a possible shortage in the
future. Of what value will be all
the mineral resources of British Columbia if thie verjtessential factor
in its development is hypothecated,
bartered and disposed of to our not
too friendly neighbors to the south of
us? Yet this would be practically
the result of placing tlie coal fields of
the interior of British Columbia under the absolute control of the Hill
monopoly. CANADIAN.

to the general hospital on Monday
suffering from a terrible gunahot
wound In the shoulder, is still very
low. The operation he was to have
undergone yesterday has been postponed until the patient Is strong
enough to stand the ordeal. It is feared the wound will result fatally.
INTERESTING POINTS���
A meeting of the council of the
board of trade has been called for tomorrow night. The business on hand
Is ot considerable Interest including
the consideration of the proposed
school bill, the reception of the
special committee report re the de
partment of mines, and other points.
QUARANTINE MATTERS���
The diptheria patients from the
Club hotel. Miss McLeod and ;Mr.
Cnrran'e little daughter,were removed
to the east Baker street residence secured for hospital purposes yesterday.
The report of the infant's death on
Monday was quite incorrett. Uecause
of the prevalence of smallpox at Phoenix quarantine regulations against
that city have been declared.
There Was No Ctse   at Hotel Hume as
P.eported Freely.
A most ridiculous report was in circulation last night regarding a case
of smallpox at the Hotel Hume. A
gentleman arrived from France, after
a wcaiisome trip and retired to bed at
an early hour" to recuperate. This
simple fact was made the basis of a report that he was suffering from smallpox.
On learning of the report the
management of the' house promptly
called in Dr. Symons, who has been
identified with the quarantine here.
The physician went to the guest's
rojm and after an examination inquired if the whole matter was not a
practical joke. Then he stated that
there was nothing wrong with the traveller.
At this time smallpox "scares" are
suie to crop almost daily, but as the
health authorities have undertaken to
give ample warning in event of a gen
uine case occurring, citizens may safely take street rumors with a grain of
salt. With the precautions now being
taken to keep out the plague Nelson
should easily keep from infection.

HE SAD IT
And Every Word Was Worth a Gold Pieoe
When an old, experienced druggist
advises a man to throw medicine to
the (togs and use good common sense
and the right kind of food the advice
is worth heeding.
"An old friend of mine whom I
knew to be not only a first class druggist, but an honest man as well, advised me, in order to cure my dyspepsia which I had suffered with for
12 long years, and spent hundreds of
dollars In order to get well, to quit
meat of all kinds and make my meals
on Grape Nuts Food and croam, with
cooked fruit and Postum Cereal Food
Coffee.
"I took his advice and In a few
days a great change had taken place.
I was no longer troubled with pains
in the side, smothering spells, palpitation, and pains about the heart,
and when night came I looked forward to a good night's rost. I was
also free from headaches and sour
stomach that had been with me for
years before. It fact I was a new
man, and improved so rapidly in
health that I went up to 220 pounds.
I am enjoying as good health as I
ever did in my life, and no healthier
man can be found I firmly believe.
During the past winter I was out of
doors every day, and wc had some
very severe weather. Those who
worked with me and used coffee and
tea. and other kinds of liquid beverages were constantly complaining of
the cold. I did not suffer in the least,
nor did I contract a bad cold during
the entire winter.
I know a lady in Pittsburg who
fullered from dyspepsia as much as I
did. She was a terrible sufferer. She
had a deathly color, but she went
on Grape Nuts Food and Postum Cereal Food Coffee and gained 23 pounds
In less than three months. She lost
the greenish color of her complexion,
sad now her cheeks are as rosy as a
school girl's and her eyes bright as a
dol I at.
I know when I am well off and stick
to Grape-Nuts and Postum Food

The chancellor gave figures illustra
tive of the importance of the trade
between Germany und east Asia,
amounting to 80,000,000 marks, while
a hundred million marks are invested
in Shan Tung province. Germany
therefore has the greatest interest in
preventing the Chinese trade from
becoming the booty of a single power
or several powers without her participation. Count Von liuelow also declared that the center of gravity of
Germany's policy remained in Europe
und that she had no intention of allowing it to be displaced while pio-
tectin'g her interests in Asia.

Berlin, March in.���During the
course of thu debate today on the
third reading of the budget In the
Reichstag, replying to l'rinuu Bismarck's criticism of Count Von Hue-
low's recent speech, that the chancellor had insisted too much on Germany's Interests in Manchuria, und
ltint Germany's interests would bave
suffered even if Kiao Chou hud not
been leaHed. Count Von liuelow said
Germany had thu greatest interest
in preventing friction betweon the
powers now negotiating in China.
Moreover In eastern Asia, Geununy
had many interests to safeguard. In
the Shan Tun province she hud millions Invested. Above all, Germany
bad to insist on adCquutu compensation being given for the murder of
Baron Von Ketteler. That was a
question in winch the honor of Germany was engaged ami in which she
hud vital interest. In his speech the
chancellor fnrthci said:
"I have left no room for tbo slightest doubt   that   no   German   political
Interests   exist   in Manchuria, but  at
the same   time   I   have   stated that it
must   naturally   be    our   desire   that
'"Iiinn   must   not too surely   diminish
her capacity for   satisfying   the   just
claims of   the   powers   for compensation.    This is   not  misunderstood   in

Ycs.August Flower still has the largest sale of any medicine in the civilized world. Your mothers and grandmothers never thought of using any
thing else for Indigestion or Biliousness. Doctors were scarce, and they
seldom heard of Appendicitis, Nervous
Prostration or Heart failure, etc.
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 Green's August

satisfied there is nothing serious the
matter with you. For sale bv W. F.
