MINING
MATTERS
Progress of Work at Highlander Mine in Ainsworth
Camp.
The Hewitt In Silverton Camp
Will Have a Tramway
At Once.
Maxwell Stevenson, junior, manager
of the Highlander mine at Ainsworth
is in the eity today on business. As
the Highlander is the only property
in the Ainsworth camp where work on
an extensive scale is being carried on
at the present time, the details of the
work are of more than ordinary interest. Mr. Stevenson states that the
work on the b'ig tunnel iB in full
swing and that the face is being advanced at the rate of five feet per day.
The result of the extensive diamond
drill tug carried on at tlie property
last fall and winter, the management
is able to estimate within a small
margin the time required to tap the
leads which the tunnel is designed to
open up. The first ledge should be
encountered on May 10th. This vein
is of soft material and it was impossible to tell from the borings exactly
its width owing to the cores being
broken up. The second lead will be
encountered 140 feet further in and it
Is quite 100 feet in width as indicated by the diamond drill cores. Fif-
teen_fcet of the ledge is in ore, the
balance being ledge matter. An in
teresting feature in connection with
thc matter is that a couple of feet of
iron and copper was met with in the
prospecting with the drill. There was
no indication of this lead on' the
surface aud as the copper values are
good the property will benefit materially by the discovery. The copper-
iron ore is alongside, though quite
distinct from the galena ore. When
thc main ledge is reached thc management figure on drifting and then
on running an upraise to tbe surface.
This raise will be 1,000 feet in
length, which is probably as gieat
depth as is attained by any mine in
the Kootenays or Boundary.
Extensive improvements are to he
carried out at once at the Hewitt
mine in the Silverton. camp. C. T.
Cross local manager of the property,
returned yesterday from a trip to
Spokane where he was in consultation with the managing directors of
the syndicate which owns the Hewitt.
One of the features resolved upon is
that of the erection of a tramway to
connect the mine with the head of
the wagon road. The distance to be
spanned is .,4110 feet and a contract
for the work will be let about the end
of the present week. It is estimated
that" the tramway will be finished
within oo days of the commencement
of work. The programme is of special interest for the reason that its
completion will place the Hewitt on
a permanent shipping basis, thus
giving Silverton a regular shipper on
a considerable scale. The product of
tho property is a dry ore which is uot
affected by the slump in lead. At tho
present time 800 tons of ore is sacked
at the mine ready for bhipment and
hy tbe time the tramway Is completed
this reserve of ore is likely to be substantially increased. The principal
feature of the work in tlie mine at
the present time is a cross cut tunnel
to tap the load at considerable depth.
This is now in 250 feet aud an average of 25 feet per week is accomplish
ed under favourable weather oondi
tions. Another thousand feet has to
be driven before tbe pre is encoun
tered.
Thomas R. French and Alex Erick-
son of Kaslo were in the eity yesterday, leaving last night for Granite
Silling to start work on their property, the Shenango and Venango, adjoining the l'oorman propeity. The
claims are crown granted and have
good showings of ore. The partners
will remain on thc claims lor some
time and figure on doing considerable
ground sluicing for tho purpose of
exposing tho lead on the surface.
ton, which lie is working in the interests of the York-Manchester syndicate. Development is now largely
confined to the new lower level
which is being opened up to tap the
lead at depth. Progress is being made
at the rate of four feet per per day
and the tunnel is in ,100 feet. It is
anticipated that the lead will be encountered in the uew level during the
present month. As the Alice is practically the only working property in
Die vicinity of Creston considerable
interest attaches   tu its   development.
MR. SIFTON, SB., ILL. '"'

ALWAYS UNDER THE FLAG
EIGHT      MONTHS      AWAY     AND
HOUND THE   GLOBE  UNDER
BRITISH    ENSIGN.
I. COWDREY  OF   MACLEOD GIVES
HIS   IMRESSIONS   OF JAPAN
AND THE PLUCKY JAPS.
K
T.  G.   Procter   relumed  yesterday
from a trip to the Alice mine nt Cres-
Around the world and never away
from the sheltering shadow of the
British Hag, is the experience of J.
Cowdrey, of Macleod, who was in Nelson for a day or two this week on his
way home after eight months of travel. With the exception of his visit
to Japan Mr. Cowdrey was not oft'
Hritish soil and one of tho most striking impressions he brings back to
Canada is that of the vastness of the
empire of which the Dgnmiion forms
a part.
Mr. Cowdrey turned his face eastward when he left Macleod eight
months ago, and spent three months
in England. Then he sailed for the
Mediterranean, stopping at Gibraltar
and Malta. From Aden a side tiip
was taken into Egypt and from the
land of the Nile the journey was resumed to India. Mr. Cowdrey spent
some weeks in India, visiting the famous points of interest in the Himalayas. His next stop was at Hong
Kong and from there he went to Japan where he spent several weeks very
pleasantly.
"When one sees the plucky little
Japanese and realize the tremendous
strides they have made in the past
half century," says Mr. Cowdrey,"one
is moved to amazement. Their splendid army was very much in evidence
because of the trouble in China having
drawn attention to this feature. The
men aro diilled on lines laid down by
German instructors who have followed
the standard of the Prussian army
closely. Tho men are, of course, diminutive in stature, hut they ap.
pear to be wiry. Certainly they are
splendidly trained and armed and
every man is overflowing with military ardour. The navy is the same.
The ships are not surpassed by those
of any other fleet iu the world and
the flotilla is being strengthened continually. The Japs are copying the
British in modelling their fleet, but
are not above taking pointers from
other nations. On the Empress of
China on which I returned was one of
the prominent executive officers of the
Japanese navy. Ho was coming to
America to study the latest wrinkles
in naval construction adopted hy the
United States navy. It is safe to
predict that if he sees any improvements no time will be lost by the Japanese naval constructors in utilizing
the idea.
"The Japanese would be fighting
Russia at the present time if the nation's exchequer would permit. 1 believe tho conflict will come yet, but it
will not be until the Japs are perfectly prepared to encounter the Bear.
The repeated bank failures in Japan
really have not the significance generally ascribed to them. When I tell
you that there are something like S00
banks in the empire and that their
average working capital is only about
150,000 you will understand that comparatively trilling circumstances are
likely to set a few dozen financial institutions toppling."
Mr. Cowdrey has returned home
thoroughly pleased with his trip and
laden with souvenirs of the scores of
interesting points he has v'lited.
GAUMUR'S
CHALLENGE
Canadian   Oarsman   Offers
English Rival  ��50 Expenses for Race.
Navigation Opened at  Fort
William���Steamer Arrives
to Load Wheat.
(SPECIAL, TO THE MINER.)
Winnipeg, Man., April 30.���Jake
Gaudaur of Rat Portage received a cable this morning from George Toms,
of London, England. Toms refused
to row Gaudaur at Rat Portage unless
he was allowed ��50 for expenses, but
is prepared to row on Toronto bay
without any allowanoe for his expenses. Sullivan, Toms' backer, is of
tho opinion that Gaudaur is not anxious to row. In order to prove tbat he
is anxious for a race, and that Sullivan is mistaken in his estimation of
the champioD, Jake has sent the following reply to Toms' cable:
"Rat Portage, Ont., April 30.--I
will guarantee you ��50 expenses for a
race here during the month of August for ��350 a side. As soon as you
cover my $500 now in the Imperial
bank here, articles will be forwarded
and money will be transferred to final
stakeholders when articles are signed.
Articles must be   signed   by June 1st.
(Signed)       "JAKE GAUDAUR."
Guadaur has given way in everything to Toms hut the course, and if
the latter wants a race, now is his
opportunity.
Navigation opened at Fort William
today, when tho steamer Rosedale entered the harbor to load wheat.
THE CITY
EAST KOOTENAY SAFE-
The medical health officer of Cranbrook has had placed in the offices of
the principal hotels here statements to
the effect that having become aware
that report are in circulation of a nature calculated to deter travellers from
going into iho East Kootenay country
he desires it understood that only
one case of smallpox exists there and
the patient is quarantined and isolated in such a manner that not the
slightest danger of   infection  exists.
INGENIOUS MACHINE-
A. F. Gibson, of Toronto, is at the
Phair, the guest of his brother John
A. Gibson. Mr. Gibson represents the
General Engineering company of Toronto, which manufactures the automatic stoker that has met such favor
in many of the largest industrial institutions of the east. The device is
rapidly attaining popularity as a
thoroughly satisfactory means of securing perfect results in the use of
coal,asidejfrom which it embodies the
strong points of being a labor saver
aud of utilizing indifferent qualities
of fuel to good advantage.
THE SLUGG-ELL1S GO���
The smoker at the Nelson opera
liouse last night was fairly
well attended and tho programme
good. The ten round mill between Dick Slugg and Jimmie Ellis
was the most important feature of the
programme and was somewnat of a
disappointment to the audieuee who
expected a knock-out. Ellis proved to
be taller than his plucky opponent
and aired a movement that would
have done credit to a Dutch windmill.
However he fought fast in spots
and had the mill bean to a finish it
would have been a warm affair. Slugg
was by long odds the most popular
man andjwas warmly applauded.
NEEDS REPAIRS���
The long Hum; which conducts the
water from Anderson creek to the city
reservoir is out of repair. Since the
flume wbs built some years ago the
expenditure on repairs has been practically nothing and the council feels
that the time has arrived to thorough
ly examine the line and put into
effect several ohanges whicli will materially add to its uscfulnss. At the
point where the flume leaves the dam
on the creek the water fills the entire
box. When the water is delivered at
tlie reservoir the flume only carries
about foui inches of water, the balance of the fourteen o fifteen inches
having been lost en route. At various points the Hume lias saggedout of
the horizontal and at other points ex-
tenive leaks occur, which account for
the discrepancy. Tim board of works
has the matter in hand and will
doubtless report on repairs at an oarly
dale.
TOM BROWN IIOME-
The last, but emphatically not the
least, of the volunteers from South
Africa to arrive in Nelson is Corporal
Tom Brown who left this city over a
year ago to join the western battalion
of the Canadian Mounted Rifles. Corporal Brown arrived on the boat yesterday afternoon and spent the balance of the day in receiving the
hearty felieitations of scores of friends
who were delighted to welcome him
home. He came through the campaign practically unscathed though
present iu every engagement in which
the regiment fought with the exception of Belfast when he was in the
hospital with enteric. On arriving
in Canada Brown was seized with a
relapse of the fever, but pulled
through and now looks well, though
several pounds lighter than when he
departed.

VICTORIA WIRINGS.
Three Masted Vessel   Ashore and Dismasted��� Richer Than Nome.
(SPECIAL TO THE lUIHER.)
Victoria, Ar>ril 30.���The steamer
Tees, which arrived here this morning, reports that while at Skidegate
on Friday, an Indian brought in a report that a three-masted schooner dismasted, was ashore on the west coast
of Graham island. Graham island is
inodt northerly of the Queen Charlotte
group. As far as could be learned
from the Indian the vessel was deserted. Rev Mr. Freeman and Mr. Dem-
orster of Skidegatc at once left for
the wieck,going by water as the overland trip is impossible owing to the
roughness of the island.
Yon Swauson, an old Nome miner,
is heie from Wreck Hay,which he says
is richer than Nome. Swanson says
Sutlon will take out two hundred
thousand this year.
A TEERIBtE FIRE.
ITive Members of an   Ontario  Family
Burned to Death.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINEII.)
Parry Sound, Out., April 31).���A
shocking and disastrous fire occuried
near the village of Uurdville last
night in which five persons, members
of the family of Joseph I'arton, were
burned to death. The fire broke out
in the middle of tho night. Farcon
and his wife were asleep in a room
down stairs and both suddenly waking up found the place in flames. The
stairs being on lire thoy were unable
to rescue any of those upstairs and
it was with difficulty they themselves, escaped from the burning
building. Of the six who occupied
the rooms upstairs only one escaped.
Tbis was a boy who jumped from a
window. Tho ones that perished were
aged from seven to eighteen years.

A Review of the Stirring Political Events of thc Past
Week.
Probability of a Special Session of the Legislature
in July.
Victoria, B. C, April 30.��� It is
probable that a special session of the
provincial legislature will be held in
July or August, for thc purpose of
dealing with the railroad question.
The proposed short line between the
coast and Kootenay connecting with
the Great Northern and thence down
to Spokane, has nearly been the cause
of wrecking the government. All
last week the provincial administration at Victoria had all it could do to
hold together, but now it is understood that the crisis that was deemed
inevitable this time last week, has
been averted, temporarily at least, by
adjourning the whole discussion until
a special session is held later in the
year. The whole of the session that is
now drawing tc a close has becn'char-
acterized by tbe fight between the
Great Northern and the Canadian
Pacific railways. Before the session
began the Great Northern acquired
the charter of the Vancouver, Victoria A Eastern railway, and since
then it has been the main object and
ambition in life of the political fighters of the Canadian Pacific to prevent thc bonus being renewed to the
V. V. & E. Premier Dunsmuir and
several of the leaders of the government fell in with the views of those
who weie opposed to  the new line.
Last Tuesday the government
brought down a definite statement of
policy, in which no company was
named, as a receiver of the bonus,
which is to be given for the construction of the short line. Instead of
making a direct bonus, the government essayed to pass what they called a loan bill for the giving of $5,-
000,000 to this and other proposed
lines of railway at the rate of $4,000
per mile, but left the name of the
company to whom the bonus should
be given to the lieutenant-governor-
in-eouncil. It was this powei of determining of the company that is to
bejthe short line to Kootemiy being
left to the executive council that caused all the trouble in the cabinet and
throughout the government ranks.
Many of thc members of tho legislature spoke vehemently in favor of
making the bonus directly for the V.
V. A E.
Smith Curtis of Rossland, and one
of the best known members of the interior, pointed out ill a strong speech
that competition in railway business
between Rossland and Vancouver has
been demanded over and over again-
Deputation after deputation had been
sent to Victoria to impress upon the
government the necessity of having a
line built by a company independent
of the Canadian Pacific, and the
boards of trade and other municipal
bodies had passed resolution after
resolution to th ��� same end. But ' -.m-
ier Duusiuuir declared that the gov-
ernemnt would stand or fall on this
railway policy. The victory for thc
Canadian Pacific, for the moment at
least, was apparent.
Then came the secession in the government ranks. II. D. Helmcken of
Victoria, one of moat outspoken members of tbe ministerial aggregation,declared that he would not support the
government In the bill that was
brought down. He and nine other
members of the government, including
Messrs. Tallow and Gaiden, two
stiong members from Vancouver,
demanded that the coiupauy be named
by the government itself and not left
to the executive council. Then came
the split in the opposition as well as
in the government. Strangely enough
ex-Premier Joseph Martin agreed to
the policy as outlined by the Dunsmuir administration and with a large
following of the opposition favored
the government in the loan bill. Hut
Mr.j Smith Curtis of Rossland took
his seceding stand and with the disgruntled members at his back formed
what was practically a new opposition. This state of things held the
! floor at  Victoria for about two   days.
Then the government began to hedge
on the proposition and modified the
four per cent, gross earnings which
was to come from the company to the
government for the receipt of thc
bonus, to two per cent of the gross
earnings. Other modifications wore
made and now every effort is being
put forward to quiet tho storm that
for a few days promised to effectually
break up the government ranks.
Now it Is proposed to take up other
questions, including the budget whicli
has ju ' hi. - ug' ! n by Hon.
J. II. Turner, minister of finance, and
lay over the whole railway question
until the later session. This will
ensure the government against defeat,
for the present at least, and it is
probable that hy the time the next
session is held a solution of the problem will be come to.
Tomorrow, Thursday, May '.', all
retail stores of Nelson will close at 12
o'clock noon and remain closed during the remainder of the day. Do
you shopping early and don't attempt
to do any after 12 o'clock.
NO  CENTRE   STAR  DIVVY
BIG   ROSSLAND   PROPERTY WILL
DISCONTINUE DISTRIBUTING
PROFITS FOR AWHILE.
ORE VALUES   ALLEGED TO HAVE
DETERIORATED ��� TORONTO
WIRINGS TO MINER.
(SPECIAL, TO THE MINER.)
Toronto, April 30.���The stockholders of the Centre Star Mining company will receive a circular tomorrow
announcing the result of the meeting
of the directors of the company in
their offices this afternoon. As was
anticipated the directors decided to
pass a dividend. The decision to pass
the dividend was based upon advices
received from the management to the
effect that under the present conditions the continuance of dividends
was not advisable. It is understood
that while the mine is shipping some
1,800 tons each week thc ore has deteriorated and is now of considerably
lower grade. It is not believed there
will be a resumption of dividends for
some time although the directors
would make no statement on this
point. In regard to the purchase of
the Trail smelter, it was given out
that no settlement had been reached
and it was also denied that negotiations had been broken off. It is still
believed in mining circles tbat the
War Eagle and Centre Star will be reorganized as one company but the directors of both companies declare the
matter is not under consideration.
The passing of the dividend of the
Centre Star|caused only a slight decrease in stock values today.
Toronto, April 30.���The Victoria
university executive has agreed to
pay $55,000 for a piece of land north
of the uuiversity for a campus and university purposes. Of this sum $15,000
will be paid down in cash.
The last of the settlers' excursions
which railroads interested in Canadian traffic arc running left yesterday
over the C.P.R. and it was one of thc
best excursions of the spring. The
Canadian Pacific trains went out in
two sections of fifteen cais each. Most
of the exeursionists were bound for
the coast.
RAILROAD MATTERS.
New Proposition   Made���Mr. Turner's
Successor.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Victoria, 11. C., April 30. ��� 11 Is un
derstood that thc V. V, at E. have
made a proposition to the government
whircby they arc willing to undertake
the construction of a part of the Coast
Kootenay road Immediately and complete thirty miles of the coast end and
thirty miles of the Kootenay end this
summer. The company is willing to
undertake this exclusive of any Dominion government subsidy, but only
for $4,000 a mile guaranteed 'by the
province in the railway bill. The
question of terms would, of course, in
ease the offer he accepted be subject
to revision.
Speculation Is rife here as to whom
will suecend Turner as finance minister. The general opinion is that at
tbe close of the session Brown of New
Westminster, one of the opposition
chiefs, and finance minister in Martin's cabinet will be taken into the
government. Supply was completed
before the house rose  this   afternoon.
ANOTHER
BIG DEAL
Plerpont Morgan and Associates Secure an English
Shipping Concern.
Connection    With    Mantle
Transports May Affect
Other Lines.
London, April 30.���The first step in
the direction of tho consolidation o*
some of the biggest transatlantic shipping interests has been- accomplished
by the purchase by J. Picrpont Morgan & Co., ot the Leyland line of
steamers. A deposit on the purchase
money has been paid.
The officials of the Leyland line In
confirming the sale, told a representative of the Associated Press that a
statement will be issued from the head
offices of the line at Liverpool tomorrow. It is understood that the slum-
holders of the company will receive
��14   10s. for each ��10 share.
The Leyland line, whose Meet will
thus pass into the control of Americans, is one of Great Britain's great
est shipping institutions far exceeding
the Peninsular ai. Oriental Steam Navigation company in tonnage and importance.
When some months ago It was suggested that the line was likely to pass
into the hands of the Atlantic Transportation company much comment
followed in regard to the effect it
would have on British lines, as it was
generaly felt in speculative circles
tbat such a wide reaching shipping
amalgamation, in close touch with
American railroads, would have serious consequences for lines outside the
combination.
A representative of the Associated
Press learned the purchase of the Ley-
land line is tantamount with its connection with the Atlantic Transportation line.
For the present the Leyland line
will retain its name and be under the
same management, though changes in
the directorate are likely to occur
shortly.
President Baker of the Altantio
Transport line today confirmed the
purchase by the Morgans. Mr. Baker
will sail for the United States Saturday. The projected connection will
be a steamship company with the largest tonnage of any company in the
world.
The report of the Leyland i ..
for l'.inn just.issued, says the puich...,c
of the West Indian and Paci'*')
Steamship company has been completed. The company now owns upward of !i!i per ceot of the capacity oi
the Wilton and Furuess-Leyland lines.
Steamers of the value of 41,000,000
were recently added to the joint fleets.
The directors declared a dividend of
0 per cent on their shaies and set
aside ��370,000 to the account of the
reserve fund.
While the subsidy bill was pending
the representative of the Associated
Press learned that the White Star
line, the Cunard line and other English companies were approached with
the view of entering into a combination, which should transfer a certain
amount of tonnage to the American
corporation, so as to secure for it tho
benefits of the projected law. These
efforts, however, have been desisted
in since the bill was defeated.
London, April B0.���The Daily Express asserts that financiers for whom
J. Picrpont Morgan is acting are oi-
deling 10 big liners aud that the
Americans will spend 410,000,000 upon new vessels during the coining live
years.
��� .     I
MOVING A TUG���
It Is understood thijt one of (he features to be introduced in the Trout
Lake district as a result of the railroad work is that of navigation on
Trout Lake. Report has it that the
C. P. R- will transfer the tug Procter
from Nelson to Trout Lake and that
the craft will ply between the lower
end of the lake and Trout Lake City.
In the section Itself it is further
rumored that the managements of the
Nettio U and Silver Cup, the biggest
properties operating in tho district at
the present time, will no longer ship
their ore by the wagon road through
Ferguson but that the ore will be
takon direct to the lake and transferred there to car barges.  __ W.W^H Nklson Dailv Minrr,  Wk��n8��i.av. Mav t, 1900

A WORD IN PROTEST.
lor. Subsequently, in a letter to Mi,
Sifton, dated Ottawa, January, .0,
1901, Hon. Mr. Haultain asked the
minister af^Uie interior to urge the
earliest possible action on the part of
the government. Replying on -March
ti, Hon.Clifford Sifton suggested that
the best way of bringing the matter
to a more definite position would be to
arrange for a conference upon the
subject between the representatives of
the Dominion government a committee of the council representing the
Federal government. Attorney -Gen-
ral Haultain ii a letter dated March
90, agieed to tins suggestion of the
minister of the interior and intimated a desire that a conference be held
immediately in order that the discussion should be advanced as far as possible before tbe legislature met on
May '.'. On April ."��� lion. Mr. Sifton
wrote to Mr. Haultain expressing the
fear that it would be impossible to arrange, fin meeting prior to the meeting of the legislative assembly and
asking Unit discussion be deferred until after the prorogation of the Dominion parliament. The question
lias therefore become a live issue to
be dealt with within the ne.xt few
months.
THE PHONE NEWS AGENCY.
Perhaps It is permissahle for a bumble interior newspaper to enter a protest against  an   abominable   practice
which   prevails at the coast,    in   the
profession of journalism   one   of   the
unwritten laws whicli is  never failed
of observance   by   wieiders of the pen
who know their business is   that  the
personality of the editoi of a newspa-
peir ought not to   come   into the discussion in a   newspaper   controversy.
Yet we see day after day certain newspapers at the coast   openly   violating
this law in a most flagrant and offensive manner.    Reference   after   reference to   the   personality of  editors of
certain papers appear   for   no   legitimate leason whatsoever.    Mr.   C.   H.
Lugrin is editor of  the   Victoria Colonist.      He is one of the   ablest journalists in Canada today, and since going to Victoria has doqe a great   deal
through his own   personal   eft'orts  to
advance the interests of the city.   Rut
time and time   again   he has been attacked for views expressed by the paper which he so ably edits.    Newspaper writers  have   seized   upon   every
possible   pretext   to "take a dig"   at
Mr. Lugrin.    That gentleman's  chief
offence seems to be that he has   identified   himself   with   all    progressive
movements in the eity where he makes
his home.    Hecause he has convictions
on public questions   and   the courage
to give utterance to them, he   is  held
up as an object   of   lidieule by newspaper scribblers who are not fit to engage in the   task of sharpening   lead
pencils for the man they attack.    The
writer of these lines  knows Mr.   Lugrin very well.    He knows him to  be
oue of the most competent journalists
on   the   continent���a   man   who  has
made    large    sacrifices   in   order   to
faithfully perform   his duty to  those
be was called upon to serve in his professional capacity.    Kind  and courteous to his employes, always willing to
give them the benefit of   bis  matured
wisdom, assisting   and    encouraging
them   whenever   occasion  offered   by
friendly words of advice, it is annoying in the extreme to see   him repeatedly maligned and   insulted   by   irresponsible scriblbers who know nothing
of the man's true worth.    The   writer
knows of no one who   has, as   an   individual, done   more   by his pen   and
voice In the   interests  of the   city  of
Victoria and the province.   To remain
silent when such a   man   ia  attacked
would be an exhibition of base ingratitude.    Mr. Lugrin has ubility which
should���and  we   think   will���eventually win   him   recognition   from   the
people  of this province���that   he  has
not already done so is dueno doubt to
the abominable   methods employed by
envious   writers   who,   dialing   at   a
knowledge of   their own   inferiority,
would keep in the background anyone
whose abilities warrant him   in   taking a   prominent   place   in thepubllc
eye.    But such   methods fail of   their
purpose.    Wortli and merit arc   never
defeated by the poisonous arrowb shot
at them by jealousy; and   Mr. Lugrin
will eventually have   the   satisfaction
of triumphing  over   the contemptible
creatures who have gone out of   the!I
way to abuse him in a wholly   unjustifiable   degree.    There is a   limit  to
everything���even   to   the patience  of
people who witness the  snappings  of
curs who envy the liberty and progress
of their fellow men.

a time. The American system of piping the oil from the place of production to the port of shipment has heen

CURRENT COMMENT
In tbe city of Budapest, capital of
Hungary with some 000,000 people,
there has been established an agency
for the distribution of local, telegraphic and general news, which is
to somo extent a competitor with and
rival to the modem newspaper. Its
m.thods are described by Mr. Thomas
S. Dennison in the World's Work.
To begin with, there is a separate telephone system in Budapest devoted to
this enterprise, having all tbe lights
of au ordinary telephone company as
to the location of its post and wires
about the streets. There are 0,200
subscribers to the system. The com
pany collects news by all the agencies
of the modern newspaper, 'reporters,
telegraph messages, etc. At stated
hours durir.g the day and evening
from 10:30 in the morning till 10.30
in the evening, the news is transmitted from central to all the subscrbers
who choose to listen to it. The time
for giving out each class of news is
scheduled and tables furnished to each
subscriber as for instance the stock
quotations at the time of opening and
closing of the stock exchanges. A
reader called a "Stentor," with exceptional vocal qualifications, reads
the news into a central receiver from
which it is transmitted to the subscribers, each of the latter being furnished with a pair of receivers similar
to those used by the young persons at
central.
There are some obvious drawbacks
to the system as compared with the
newspaper, and some obvious advantages in favor of the phone system. An
etxra can be Issued at any hour of the
day. A fire,or a battle is in progress,
and at half hour intervals if necessary
the news is transmitted directly to all
tbe subscribers. Of course there is no
record of the news and subscribers
are simply told what is going on. If
they wish to refei to any particular
matter afterward they must depend
upon incnory. We conclude therefore
that the phone news system can nevor
wholly take the place of the newspaper. Nevertheless Mr. Dennison tells
that the enterprise is distinctly a success iu Budapest. It has passed beyond the region of experiment and
will no doubt be extended to other
large cities.	
THE RAILWAY   HILL.
The railway bill just brought down
by the government is in itself a fiat
defiance of the people of Hritish Columbia. Instead of offering a subsidy
to secure a line from Kootenay to tbe
Coast free and independent of the C,
P. R. company and to be kept free of
that company, the five millions authorized by thc bill will be in the
hands of the goveruor-in-council to be
offered to any company which lie ami
they may select.
If this hill is passed the whole business will be in thc hands of the gov-
ernor-iiicoiineil. Neither tlie people
nor the legislature will have any voice
in the mailer and this province will
be in tbe strangle hold of Ihat company, which is uppermost in the
affections of the Dunsmuir administration today.
The stipulations in the bill would
bo laughable under ordinary circumstances. Some ot them are plainly
"ultra vires" of the 1 egislature. All
of them are outrageously impossible
of acceptance by any business man or
company of men. The objection of
the bill'is to kill the last chance of
railway competition between Victoria
and the interior.
It is impossible to believe that this
bill will be passed by a majority of
the house, every member ol" whicli
knows tbat the light is between the
people and the C. P. R. company. It
is impossible, to believe that men
elected to faithfully discharge their
duties to the public can he found to
vote for a bill so deadly to the interests of the province. If they do
vote foi it, in defiance of the will of
the people so emphatically expressed,
in betrayal of the men who elected
thein, and to the enslavement of themselves and their children, shame and
contempt will be their portion during
their natural lives and long after they
are occupying lots in the cemetery.���

AN IMPORTANT CONFERENCE.
A conference between representatives of tbe Dominion government and
the government of the Northwest territories will take place during' the

Industrial troubles in Coimany appear to be increasing rather than abating. The groat Krupp iron and steel
works have discharged .1,111111 more of
their operatives, making 11,011(1 turned
adrift since October last. This represents nearly one fifth of his full force
when all his industries are working,���
47,fl()0 men. Nor is the depression
confined to the Krupp works or to the
Iron and steel industry. The Berlin
Tageblalt says that ono fourth of tho
working people of IJcrmany aie either
idle or insufllcieiitly employed. These
conditions existing under high protection at a time when in most other
countries the industries are fully employed are suggestive of something
wrong in Germany.

KITCHEN EXPENSES
Reduced by Ready Cooked   Grape-Nuts.
"Modern food saves gas bills (cooking, )labor, and doctor's bills, and the
food I refer to is Grape-Nuts," says a
Chicago woman.
"We have used Grape-NutB over a
year. I weighed, when I began using
it, about 100 pounds, but have gained
22 pounds since I have recovered entirely from dyspepsia since using this
tie. icious food. My husband and children enjoy Grape-Nuts as much as I
do. and they have all been decidedly
benefited by ils use. My baby is very
much healthier than ray other two
children were, at his age. I attribute
the difference to the use I have made
of Grape-Nuts Food.
Of course it is a great advantage lo
have a food that is alieady cooked and
sure to be in good condition. This
is not always true of many cereals."
Mrs. Geo. S. Foster, 1026 Waban.lu
Ave., Chicago, 111,
