Aehcroft, 11. C, March 23.���-A
rumor has been in circulation for
some days of the murder of a Chinaman in Ashcroft. This morning Barrister Jenns of Westminster, arrived

eied.

HOISTED FLAGS.
AFTERWARDS       RETIRED       BUT
LEFT FLAGS   FLYINU-CUR-
RENT COMMENT.
London, March 2-1.���The Sunday
Specials' correspondent from Tien Tsin
says: "A new and unfortunate
hitch has occurred in the Anglo-Russian siding dispute. After both par -
ties had withdrawn according to
agreement, the Russians suddenly returned to the disputed spot and planted flags over all the territory. They
afterwards retired leaving the flags
flying."
The Berlin correspondent of the Sunday Specials says: "The settlement
of the siding dispute was the work of
Count Von Waldersee who interfered
at the (special request of Emperor William, the latter considering that the
maintenance of friendly relations between all the metnberB of the international forces was clearly within the
scope of Von Waldersee's duties as
commandant."

beneficial. Italy has formally expressed the thanks ot the Italian cabinet for Count Von Buelow's statements
in the Reichstag, regarding Italy's
attitude in China.

Health Officer Says Isolation

Community.
Protests From a Number of
People Regarding Its
Location.
It was Not Quite Up to Previous
Week's Record.
Rossland, Mareh 23.���The output
for tho week owing to a temporary
mishap to tho big hoist at the Le Roi
has not equallod that of the previous
week, the corrected shipments of
which were 0,277 tons instead of 0,174
tons. The coriect shipments therefore for the year, up to and including
March Ifl were precisely 78,472 tons.
The output for the week ending tonight was 8,010 tons. For the three
previous weeks tbe shipments have
averaged 0,000 tons per week. The l'.o
Roi No.2 has done especially well during the week having shipped 000 tons.
This is a record week for the Prince

BRITISH TERMS IMPOSSIBLE.
Herman Press Say Chamberlain's
Terms to Boers Averted Peace.
Berlin, March 23.���Severe press
comment continues on the Bubjeet
of the Kitchener-Botha negotiations
as revealed by the documents submitted to the British parliament. The
opinion is unanimously expressed that
Mr. Chamberlain missed a good opportunity for restoring pence, his
terms rendering it impossible for the
Boers to accept them. The Tage-
blatt says llreat Britain is still insufficiently impressed with the difficulty of tbo South African situation,
otherwise sho would make propositions acceptable for the Boers.
The action of the local health officials in locating the detention hospl
tal for patients suffering from contag
ious diseases in an east Baker street
house, has given rise to a series of
protests on the part of property own ���
ers interested in the section. A. J.
Marks voices the sentiments of the
citizens who object to the present location of the of the hospital premises, and, in explaining the stand taken on the matter, points to the fact
that the bouses adjoining tbat occupied by the diphtheria patients are
tenanted and that there are several
small children living in the immediate neighborhood. The owners of
these houses have had some difficulty
in renting them because of the character of the neighborhood prior to
last year; and just as they have about
overcome this difficulty they find
themselves again injured by the placing in their midst of a colony of diphtheria suspects. This, and the fact
that the new detention hospital is one
of several houses clustered together,
leases the authorities, Mr. Marks
claims, open to just criticism. Be
maintains, too, that there are several
other houses in Nelson unoccupied and
isolated which could as easily have
been secured.
In common with all questions this
matter has two sides, and for the purpose ot bringing out the other aspect,
Dr. LaBau was asked as to the city's
policy in regard to the detention hospital. The medical health officer
said: "The isolation hospital is not
in the slightest degree a menace to
the health of the citizens residing in
its vicinity. The zone of contagion
is bounded by the walls of the building and outside of the premises there
is no way for the infection to spread.
Before the hospital was located on
East Baker street we searched the city
thoroughly for suitablo premises and
could find nothing to suit our purposes as well as the premises now in
use. It is an unfortunate fact that in
outbreaks of contagious diseases the
Interests of a few people sometimes
suffer. It may as well be understood
once and for all that the isolation hos
pltal will remain where it is as long
as there is any necessity for its maintenance. In view of this fact, the
citizens who are protesting against
the action of the health officials may
as well save themselves further trouble in the matter."

(Special to Tlie Miner.)
Montreal,March 23.���President

to the terms of an agreement
by which the C. P. R. consents
to withdraw its opposition to the
application of the Great Northern railway for a charter for a

fields arc incorrect. He admits

A WALKING CIGAR FACTORY.
Buffalo, N. Y., March 23.���Louis
Walter, a young man employed as a
canvasser, died at the emergency hospital tonight from nicotine poisoning.
Enough tobacco was T'emovcd from
Walter's stomach to make half a dozen cigars. It is thought he swallowed the cigars with suicidal Intent.
A. Benard Buckworth of Ymir, census commissioner for the Nelson district, leaves shortly for Revclstoke
where he will meet R. L. Dr.ury, chief
census officer for the province, who
recently returned from Ottawa. This
meeting is fixed for next week,
probably commencing Tuesday, and
full instructions as to the carrying on
of the work will be given the commissioners and assistant commissioners.
The census, being taken according
to the de jure system, will represent
the population as it was upon the
31st day of March at 12 o'clock at
midnight, so that everyone born before that hour and everyone dying after it will be counted in the population.
The country will be divided into
census districts, to correspond with
tbe electoral divisions as they existed
for the last parliamentary election,
with few exceptions.
Census districts will again be divided into census sub-districts to correspond with polling sub-divisions for
electoral purposes. The actual
work of taking the census for the
sub-districts will be assigned to the
enumerators. Every officer employed
In the carrying out of the census is
bound under oath to laithfully and
exactly carry out his work. He is
not permitted to disclose any information whioh may be gathered for the
purposes of the taking of the census.
The facts and statistics collected are
to be used for statistical information,
and may not be used for taxation ot
any other object. The work ot
enumerating is to commence Monday,
April 1st, and will be prosecuted
continuously from day to day until
completed, Sundays excepted. The
population is grouped under the heads
of families, households and institutions. A family consists of parents,
and sona and daughters united in a
living and housekeeping community,
but may include other relatives and
servants. A household includes all
persons in a house-keeping community
usually with one of their number occupying the position of head. Single
persons living alone who have a special dwelling and carry on their own
housekeeping are also regarded as
households. Other persons who only
sleep in a house will be included in
the household which carry on housekeeping for them, although they may
take their meals elsewhere. An institution household includes establishments such as prisons hospitals, etc.,
whose inmates, if they have no home
or domicile elsewhere outside of the
Institution, are to be entered under
the head of the institution. The attendants, cooks, etc., are not to be
entered with the inmates or guests
but with the household of the head of
the institution, or with theii own or
other households of which they form a
part. The heads of families, households and institutions are required to
furnish the enumerator with all particulars regarding every person in the
family, household, or institution as
called for in the schedules.
The races will be designated, white,
red, black and yellow. Only pure
whites, will be classified as whites.
Children born of marriage between
whiteB and any other race will be
classified as red, black or yellow. Un
der nationality, Canadian will be used
to describe every person whose home
is in the conntry and who has acquired rights of citizenship. A peison
born in any foreign country who is a
naturalized citizen will bo entered as
a Canadian ; so also will be a person
born In the United Kingdom or any
of its colonies whose residence in Canada is not merely temporary. Instructions are Issued to the census takers
for the proper valuation of property
and other matters pertaining to the
census numeration under the provisions of the "Ceosus Act' whicli requires that it be taken every ten
years.
WHY SKEETS WASjBARRED.
London, March 23.���The friends of
J. H. (Skeets) Martin, the American
jockey, attribute the refusal to grant
him a license to ride during the coining season, to the fact that Martin
offended a prominent member of the
jockey club by his method of riding at
Cairo this winter. The papers are
inclined to treat him leniently but
the inexpiable rules of the Jockey
club seem fatal to his chances.

DECLARATION ABOUT SOCIAL
CONDITIONS.
THROWS
UPON
BLAME   FOR   ATTEMPT
BIS LIFE UPON THE
NATION.
Berlin, March 23.���The reply of
Emperor William to the Prussian
diet's congratulations yesterday, in
which his majesty, ignoring the officially established facts that Weiland,
the man who threw a piece of iron
at the Emperor at Bremen striking
him on the cheek, Is a life long epileptic, and for years was an inmate
of an asylum, nnd on the day of the
attempt was under medical treatment
for fits, threw harsh blame upon the
nation for conditions breeding such
attempts, is the sensation of the
day.
A lively debate followed in the diet,
Heir Richter contending that such
admittedly unauthentic statements of
the Emperor's words spoken without
the presence of a responsible minister, were unconstitutional and had
never happened before during the
past 30 years.
When Herr Richter began sharply
criticizing the Emperor's words, President Von Krolier. culled him to order. Herr Richter said this proved
the truth of his contention.
Tonight's papers are full of references to Emperor William's   remarks

GUARDING THE KAISER.
Extraordinary Precautions to Prevent
Repetition of Attacks.
Berlin, March 23.���Tlie correspondent of the Associated Press is reliably
informed that yesterday's unusual
precautions when the Imperial couple
visited the mausoleum of Emperor
William I., including the strictest
shutting out of the public from the
whole Charlottenbur Castle and park
an hour before Emperor William's
arrival, forms part of a regular programme mapped out for all public occasions by Police Chief Von Wlnde-
helm, and approved by His Majesty.
THE  JAPS'   PROTEST.
Pittsburg, Pa., March 23.-The
United States Steel Corporation, the
greatest combine of interests In the
world, will, from present indications,
be doing business on April 1st; and in
tlie Pittsburg district and the leading
iron und steel centres of the country,
over 5000 employees in the mills and
blast furnaces will have new employers. It is not the intention of the
new corporation to make any changes
in the management of the constituent
companies, but it is likely that new
systems of operations will be introduced. Among the concerns embraced in the big steel combine, the Carnegie company heads the list with the
largest number of employees and is
closely followed by the National Tube
company, aud the Aineiican Steel
and Wire company. All are open
mills, only those of the Tin Plate
Company and several of the American
Sheet Steel company being under the
jurisdiction of the Amalgamated Association of Iron and Steel and Tlnplate
Workers, the wages being regulated
by an annual scale agreed upon by
that organization   and the companies.
The wages at the other plants are
arranged by agreement between the
workmen and the companies. It seems
likely that this system will be called
the United States Steel corporation.
No announcement has been made of
the formulation of a general wage
scale for the various departments of
the big combine.
Edinburgh, March 23.���The Scottish and North of England steel makers are negotiating with the object of
sustaining the present prices with a
view of competing with the American
steel trust. The Scotch steel makers
claim to have full orders.
STRIKE AT  THE KING.
Another rich strike is reported
from the Silver King mine. It
is stated that in the course of
the development work on the
eighth level In the mine, a body
of ore was discovered whicli rivals in quality the richest ore ever
taken out of the property. As
the best previous record was
something like a 81,000 to the
ton, the strike, if as reported,
means a big thing. Captain
Gilford, manager of the mine,
could not be secured over the
'phone yesterday in regard to
the matter.
U. S. Government Made Aware of
Japan's Attitude re Manchuria.
Washington, March 23 ���The state
department has been made aware of
the fact that the Japanese government
has made u rather energetic protest
against the conclusion of the Russo-
Chinese agreement relating to Manchuria. This, however, has not been
conveyed to the department by means
of any formal note of cotninunieation
but has been verbal in character and
has been in line with the well understood attitude of opposition which
Japan has manifested for some time.

LYNCHING IN ARKANSAS.
Little Rock, Ark., Mareh 23.���A
special from Pocahontas says that
Geo. Chevcy, who day before yesterday, shot aud killed the town mui-
shal, John Morris, when Morris was
performing official duty, was taken
from jail by a mob of 250 men last
night and hanged. The coroner's
jury held Chevey for murder but owing to the feeling against hint, the
trial had been postponed until next
week. The members of the mob were
masked.
SLAVERY ESSENTIAL.
German Colonial Minister Says Settlers Must Have Slaves.
Biiilin, March 23.���The Reichstag
debate Wednesday was interesting
because Herr Rebel's motion to declare legally free all children born of
domestic slaves in the German colonics was rejected with tbe aid of
the centre party. Germany now
stands confessed before the world as
perpetuating slave holding power.
All that the colonial chief, Dr. Stuc-
bel and other advocates could say was
that slavery was absolutely necessary for settlers In the German colonies.

GOVERNMENT OWNERSHIP.
The   announcement    is   made   that
John Houston, M. P. P., will move on
Wednesday next that the Crow's Nest
Southern railway be   undertaken as a
provincial   public   work.    Aside from
the fact that this action on   the   part
of Mr. Houston is execedinlgy   interesting  because   of   his   previous atti -
tude on the question of the expediency
of   allowing   the   road to be built   at
all, it is a move   that is   calculated to
precipitate a very   lively discussion in
the   legislature   on   a   topic which in
now engaging   more   than   any other
the mind of   the electorate of Canada
���government ownership of  railways.
His motion will receive the hearty endorsement and support of Mr.   Joseph
Martin   and   his   followers, but   that
fact is not likely to prove  much of an
aid to Mr. Houston in his endeavor to
secure the   support of the   house   and
the country to hrs proposal.    Without
in any way   endorsing   Mr. Houston's
new attitude   on the   question of   tbe
construction of the Crow's Nest Southern railway, it is very   interesting   to
recall in this connection   the remarks
made   by Mr. Richardson, member   of
Llsgar,   in   the   Dominion   house the
other day,   during   the   debate on the
motion- to   appoint   a   railway  commission.    Mr.    Richardson    presented
some very valuable und timely information showing what Canada hns "iven
for its railway system.  Hoaaiii.    The
people of Canada have given   in cash,
up to the present   time���and I include
the   municipalities,     the     provincisl
governments and the   Dominion   government ��� JP23,000,000   in   ensh     for
railways.    From what tho minister of
the interior (Hon. Mr. Sifton) told us
the  other   day,   it appears  that  the
country   has    contributed     00,000,000
acres of land for tbe   construction   of
railways.    You   will   agree with   me
that, in view of the   statements made
by my hon. friend   (Mr.   Davis),   and
in view of the facts   produced   in this
house from time to time, $3 an acre is
a very moderate estimate of tbe value
of   this   land.    Estimating  on     that
basis, you will find that the people of
thU country have   given   8403,000,000
for' the   construction     of    railways.
Just   let   the   lion,    members of   this
honse pause and think for   a   moment
what that means.    It   means that   the
people   have   given     far    more   than
would build the entire system of railways in this   country.    And what   do
We own?   We   own  the   Intercolonial
Railway, which,    I  presume   actually
cost about   S25,000,000���we   paid 850,-
000,000 for It, but it   was   not   worth
that amount of money.    Tliink of this
expenditure   in   connection   with  the
proposition   that wo shall attempt   to
regulate   rates   by appointing a commission.    Wc cannot do  it.    The only
way in which rates   can be effectively
controlled   in   this country is for   the
government   to   own und control   one
road on whicli thei-;  shall be no overcapitalization, and on which fair rates
shall be charged, based   on the actual
cost  of   the   road.    When the government takes that position, I assert, we
���hall   have   the   transportation   question effectively solved. As I havo said,
I   am not one who says that the country should, at present, go into the enterprise of   controlling   all   the   railroads  of   the  country.    But I   would
be willing to go even that far,   If   we
cannot get   justice in  any other way.
Look at the example of the Australasian colonies.    According to an   article
In the North American   Review that I
read recently these colonies have paid
$4100,000,000   for   their   railways.    At
present   these   railways   charge more
favorable rates than ours do, rates   In
accordance  with   the condition of the
settlers,and they are ublo to pay three
per cent, on that   vast sum of money,
and pay  operating expenses as   well.
If tbat can be done In  the   Australasian colonies,why can it not be done in
Canada?   It is perfectly true that   we
Have made   this   bad   start; it is per
fectly true that wc have paid this vast
untn of   money   and   have   practically
Bo return for it.    But. surely, sir, we
are not going to perpetuate tHIs colos
sal error.   The time hus   come   when
the transportation   question Is knocking at the door of parliament, nnd tines* the people's  representatives deal
It is now admitted in high official
circles that war is imminent between
Japan and Russia, tbe particular bone
of contention being the secret agreements made between Russia and
China by which the former secures
territorial and other advantages contiguous to Korea. Trouble between
the two powers has been brewing for
a long time and It now seemB inevrt-
able that Japan is determined to
"have it out" with her formidable antagonist. The extreme gravity of the
complex problem in the Far East does
not appear to be rightly appreciated
either in America or Great Britain
and under certain circumstances it
may yet prove the greatest problem the
world has had to face. The magnitude of the question, the want of precise information as to the issues involved and the fear of foreign complications, have combined to produce
an acquiescence in the attitude of
successive governments which hitherto
has practically been a policy of waiting on events. Under this policy Russia was able to get possession of Port
Arthur, and with it the practical control of the whole of Manchuria, an
area of over 300,000 square miles.
Manchuria is not one of the eighteen
provinces of China proper, but a dependency of the Empire since the beginning of the present dynasty. It is
a white man's land and climate, with
a population of more than eight millions, a vigorous race possessed of all
the best qualities for the making of
an army. Manchuria is rich in mineral wealth, arable land, and natural
resources. It is known as the "heaven ordained" home of the dynasty
and as "the cradle of tbe Manchu
race," while Liao Tung is called "the
regent's sword," and is regarded as
the gateway of Pekin. The management of the Eastern Chinese railway
throughout Manchuria connecting
with the Trans-Siberian trunk line
will be entirely Russian. The advantages conceded by China in this connection are textually not to the Russian government, but to tbe railway
company, which is nominally a private concern, though in reality a department of the Russian government.
Its articles of association were sanction by a Russian Ii. rial ordinance
issued in St. Petersburg nn December
23, 1808. The holders of .nares in the
company are limited to Russian and
Chinese subjects, but its monetary requirements are provided hy the Russian government. The company possesses the power to levy rates at its
discretion, so that sooner or later the
door may be effectively closed against
the trade of the other powers which
ure nlreudy admitted under "the favored-nation clause" to the somewhat
considerable markets of Manchuria.
When au attempt is made to speak
about China, the oldest and in some
respects the greatest empire in existence, with a venerable and historic
civilization, und about her intelligent,
hardy, sober, ingenious, enterprising, thrifty, and industrious people,
it is perplexing to decide where to
begin, and it is difficult to determine
where to stop. The population of the
Chinese empire is estimated at 400,-
000,000, or not far Bhort of that of the
entire population of Europe, while
the area of China proper and her dependent territories, viz, Manchuria,
Mongolia, Thibet, Jungaria and East
Turkestan, extends to about 4,200,000
square miles, or rather more than
one-twelfth part of the entire land
surface o* the globe. The area of the
Chinese empire is about thirty-five
times larger than the area of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and it is difficult to form an adequate itlea of Its vustness.

were formed in Calgary from the
available ranchmen, cowboys and
mounted police. Inspector Steele,
as he at this time was, commanded
them ; and joined by some of the Canadian infantry with a few nine-pounders, and under the chief command of
Major-General Strange,they did invaluable work. They met with no seri-
oui opposition until they reached Victoria, north of the Saskatchewan liver, some 30 miles from Fort Pitt���a
Hndson Bay trading post, where "Big
Bear's" redskins had massacred a
number of whites. Here, after the
first attack, General Strange had to
retreat in good order, but a week or
ten days later "Big Beat's" army
was divided, that powerful chief was
captured, and the rebellion wus crushed. It was Steele who personally arrested "Sitting Bull,'' the great Sioux-
chief, and released ut the same time
the Indians' captives, including the
Misses Fraser, who had been most
cruelly treated by the redskins.

In "Canada Under British Rule,
1760-1900," just issued by Copp, Clark
& Lo., Toronto, Sir John Bourinot,
the author, has given us a well-
thought-out essay on Canada under
British rule, which not only enables
the reader to follow every phase cf its
development from the close of the
French regime to the beginning of the
twentieth century, but which places
before him an interesting summary of
the numerous events in its history
up to the present time. In an appendix the author compares the leading
provisions of the federal systems of
the Dominion of Canada and the Commonwealth of Australia, and supplies a useful bibliography of works in
tbe Dominion which acts as a useful
guide to the student of colonial history desiring to further pursue his
studies.	
CURRENT COMMENT
In view of thri unprecedented aetiv-
itv of promoters and Subsidy hunters,
this apathy or stupor or whatever it
may be called, in regard lo financial
matteis, does not augur well for the
interests of the taxpayers. Perhaps,
these remarks my arouse some of the
members to the fact that there are
other matters requiring attention besides the passage of all sorts of academic resolutions.���Vancouver News-
Advertiser.
There are few in British Columbia
who do not strrve to do by the Chi
nese as we would have them do by us
if we were pilgrims and strangers in
their country. But the testimony of
the classes of the community which
have thus far been heard by tbo commission leaves little room for doubt
that at least nine-tenths of our population tliink that they should be either excluded absolutely or a tax inr
posed which would amount to the
same thing.���Victoira Times.
Redistribution wrecked one  govern
ment, and is the most  dangerous sub
ject that the   provincial   ministry can
take up. Therefore, Mr. Brown presses
It upon   them.    He   might   profit   by
the embarrassment of the government,
and is not concerned at the loss to the
community   involved   by the continu
ance of the chnos of  the   Semlrn-Mnr
tin epoch.    Our member   should pluce
before bis   personal   interests those of
his constituents, who   are vitally   interested   in   tbe   carrying out of   the
railway policy to which the   Dunrmiir
Government   stands    commuted.���Columbian.

British Columbia possesses resources second to none and it would
be well for her to march boldly into
the camp of her competitors nnd let
this fact be known. This could be
accomplished at comparatively little
expanse by opening a Hritish Columbia office, or bureau of information
at the Pan-American Exposition. With
a good live commissioner in charge,
well versed in the advantages antl re-
sources of the province, and supplied
with abundant carefully compiled literature, much could be done towards
turning at least some of the tide in
this direction.���Kamloops Sentinel.
COLONEL STEELE.
The announcement is made, that
Colonel Steele is seeking superannuation. Very general regret will be expressed at his retirement from the su-
perintendency of the Northwest
Mounted Police. In a recent issue of
the London Daily Mail there appeared a very interesting sketch of his
career. Like many of his men in
Strathcona's Horse, he won hie spurs
as a scout long yeurs ago, and he has
never since allowed them to grow
rusty. Thirty years ago there were
men in tire northwest who were
ready to swear by Sam Steele, and
told tbe stranger that Steele was
"chuck full of sand"���a westernism
for tho man who knows no fear. At
tlrat time he was a sergeant-major in
the Northwest Mounted Police at. Fort
Walde, In the centre of the most turbulent Indian tribes, with a couple of
hundred men,practically isolated from
civilization. A splendid frontiersman,
a dead shot, a giant in strength, and
a man with a reputation for horsemanship even in this land of the
ranch, he made so lasting an impression tbat it is said the Indian squaw
to this day uses his name to still the
papoose to sleep. When in 1H8S Louis

MADAME   ALBANI'S VISIT.
The success with which Madame
Albani and her company are meeting
in the east has fully justified the action of her manager in arranging for
the present Canadian tonr, The artists accompanying the Canadian prima
donna are spoken of as among the
best ever visiting Canadian cities and
their reception everywhere is most
enthusiastic. Manager Annablc of
the Nelson opera house is confidont
that the capacity of his bouse will be
taxed upon the occasion of the visit
of the company to Nelson on April
15. Some years ago when on a tour
through Canada a child was brought
to Madame Albani by Mr. Torring-
ton, the well-known director of the
Toronto College of Music, who asked
that the great singer would give audience to tbe little girl of thirteen
Bummers. Madame Albani beard her
sing and not only predicted much for
her but also presented the youthful
visitor with her photograph, luuglr-
ingly saying, "I am afraid I have a
rival inj you."    The   other day   at   a
Serformance of the Messiah at which
[lie. Trcbelli was to sing but wits
unable to do through indisposition
Miss Killed] Millelt took the whole of
the solos at a moment's notice, malt

whose kindly advice tended to encourage the little mite who today is soaring away in the florid runs uf Handel s matter works,

PURSEf HANDED TO MR. MUNROE.
OF THE EMMANUEL CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH.
MARK OF THE   CHOIR'S APPRECIATION OF HIS FAITHFUL
LABORS.
The proceedings at the weekly practice of the Emmanuel Congregational
church choir on Friday night were enlivened by an event of unusual interest. This was a presentation to the
pastor. Rev. William Muuroe, of a
purse containing a substantial amount
in gold as a mark of the choir's appreciation of his labors. This sentiment
was set forth in an accompanying
address, which reads as  follows:
"Dear Mr. Munroe,���It is now nearly a year since you came to Nelson to
establish the Congregational church
in our city. During this time you
have been brought face to face with
many difficulties in the progress of
your work whith would undoubtedly
have undermined the perseverance of
any person but yourself. In spite ot
this you have proved equal to the occasion and by constant attention to
your work, established in our midst
a church which is a credit not only to
the city bnt to the Congregational
church at large.
"We have during the progress of
thiB work had occasion to assist you
somewhat and can vouch for the zeal
which has characterized itself in your
oveicoming the work which you
had in hand. For some time we have
wished to show our appreciation of
your sei vices while you have been
with ua and on behalf of the choir of
Emmanuel church we now ask you
to accept of this small gift as a slight
mark of our respect and apprccation
for the untiring interest you have
shown in your work and also for the
help you have been to us individually.
Under your careful and constant
supervision we are safe in predicting
a still greater progress in the work of
Emmanuel church in the future than
has been done in the past."
The address was signed by the choir
committee. Rev. Mr. Monroe expressed his surprise and gratification becomingly and the party spent half an
hour pleasantly.

AS OTHERS SEE US.
Mr. Lasoellea Carr, the celebrated
English journalist of Cardiff, Wales,
arrived in the city yesterday on his
return to Ottawa from his trip
through the west, says the Winnipeg
Free Press. When interviewed, Mr.
Carr expiesscd himself as being most
favorably impressed with the Canadian
Northwest and Britisli Columbia. The
raining resources of British Columbia
Mr. Carr considers simply stupendous,
and sufficient to enrich a great province. Tbe ooal deposits at the Crow's
Nest are inexhaustible, and the English newspaper man cannot comprehend why the people there oppose a
railway outlet for the products of
these coal mines. He states that
the coal there is better than the average South Wales article, and makes
the best coke in the world; it can be
mined cheaply, and the area ot the
coal districts extends over hundreds
of miles, so that there need be no fear
of its being exhausted for many years.

QUESTION ANSWERED.
Yes, August Flower still has the largest sale of any medicine In the civilized world. Your mothers and gland-
mothers never thought of using uny
thing else for Indigestion or Bilious-
nesB. Doctors were scarce, anil they
Beldom 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 Groen's August
Flower, In liquid form, to make you
satisfied there is nothing serious the

ROCKY/MOUNTAIN RANGERS!
A MEETING CALLED   TO DISCUSS
ARRANGEMENTS   FOR THE
SUMMER'S WORK.
More Home Knitters Wanted
CAPT.     MACDONNELL     PROMISES
TO PROVE A MOST EFFICIENT
OFFICER.
A meeting of the members of No.
2 company, Rocky Mountain Rangers
has been called for Monday night, for
the purpose of discussing the arrange
ments for the summer's work. All
militiamen are requested to attend as
business of considerable importance
will be considered. Within a few
weeks the company will be in the
midst of spring drill and the approaching season promises to see a number
of changes which should contribute
very materially to the efficiency and
popularity of the corps.
H. E. Macdonnell is expected to
take command of the company as captain next month and with the establishment of officers thus arranged the
company will be in a position to go in
for the year's work unhampered. Captain Macdonnell promises to be a most
efficient officer. His last service was
as senior subaltern in a crack com
pany of the Ninetieth Rifle' " "" ur
peg, and he holds a certificate o_ eflic
iency from the Manitoba school of in
Btruction. Having been promised the
undivided support of the members of
the company Captain Macdonnell is
likely to bring the corps to a high
state of efficiency. A special feature
will be made this summer of the
shooting at the rifle ranges. The experience of the troops in the South
African campaign has been such as to
place greater stress on the necessity
for accurate marksmanship than has
been the case heretofore, and it
likely that in future the corps that
can shoot well will be accorded
higher place in the estimation of the
militia authorities than the corps
which attains proficiency in drill tactics alone. The rifie association of last
year was very successful and shoot
ing was brought more prominently to
the front than was ever the case in
Nelson previously. This season it is
asserted that shooting at tbe ranges
will be more popular still and it is on
the cards that the company will make
an effort to secure representation on
the BUIey team. More than one of
the local rifle experts would have stood
an excellent chance of wrnning a
place on the British Columbia contingent last year had they competed at
the provincial association mutches.
The construction of the drill hali
here, promised by the militia department, will contribute very materially
to the success of the corps and it is to
be hoped that the long roll of red
tape which always attends the completion of such an undertaking will
be unwound in time to have the building erected this summer. The hall
would enable the corps to introduce
some of the social features which assist in bringing the militia in into
popularity. The suggestion has also
been made that another company could
readily be raised in Nelson if the
facilities wore such as they should be.
In any event, it is probable the department will institute a Maxim gun
section, as has been done elsewhere.
In all other regiment equipped with
Maxims the department has granted
an addition to the establishment of
a subaltern officer and ten men. In
Nelson it has been necessary to man
the Maxim out of the strength of the
company and this has been a drawback. Now an application is before
the militia department for the increase In the establishment and there
would seem to be no reasonable ground
for_refuslng the request.

the   exception of  Major   Bennett,   of

firoud   of the appointment.     Ho  was

the time when ho will have another
bruah with the liners.
We wish to secure the services of families to ao knitting
for us In their homes. Our method is the same as adopted
In Bnglan.If. are the introducers of this plan and tire
largest    knitting   concern   in   Canada.
After long experience, we have been able to produ.e an
Automatic Machine by which all kinds of "jamtMB knitting is now done by our Family Machine, thereby a nam iu,
anyone of ordinary intelligence to quickly learn to do the
work from the instruction Guide. All we require is tlat
you use the machine according to direction. The Machine
being made expressly for this purpose and tlie operation
so   simple,   it   cannot possibly make a mistake In Its work
Tlr-ii demand now is for Bicycle Stockings, Woodman. OCkl and i m 1 Mlttei 'lit! t we are unable to supply the d.    and,  uave taken  .his n...hod of ad-
VTn.lni!r_er expo��� tr... to the North-west. Territories.
British Columbia, and the British Colonics, furnishes an un-
mired demand for our Roods, and, with the combined cooperation of the many families we are employing, togothei
With the large amount of knitting we are able to turn our,
���v which we save rents, insurance, interest on capital, etc
enables us to undersell any manufacturers of this class o!
goods,  and we have sale for all the knitting we can have
'i'he price we pay for finished bicycle stockings Is tin.00
per hundred, or at the rate of 10c per pair) woodmen��
socks, Be, 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 nt our prices any energetic family should be able to
sustain themselves comfortably, and In time be a source of
Independent   comfort. 	
Our plan Is to send out each machine to beginners will
a sock or stocking partially knitted, and remaining In rhc
machine ready to be continued, and also enough yarn r<>
knit one pair of sample socks or stockings and a simph'
tint! complete Instruction Guide, showing how the work Is
to be done. When the samples havo been finished nntl
returned to us satisfactory, wo send a quantity of yarn.
Which von knit and return likewise when finished. 'Vie
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 thou
snnd stitches a minute. We have many persons now in 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 thP work, you can readily see that J15.00 or
J70.O0  nor week can be easily earned.
We furnish our workers all the materials, yarn, etc.
free, nnd everything that is necessary for the work. \V-
are furnishing'thP 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, properlv signed by them, and at least one good reference, nnd remittance accordingly, to give us the necessary
nssurnnoe 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 es-
t.tbllfrhed 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
and not anotber: besides, we are doing an extensive business,   nnd  must be   governed by business  principles.
The mnnufactnred price of the machine Is $15, and positively will not be sold to any others than those who will

If at anv time after you commence, and have done an
amount of work equal to the purchase price, and wish to
discontinue, wo wlli take back machine and refund the
amount paid for same, after deducting cost of our expense  only.
There is a Tjirge Demand by the Trade for this class
of work. Our workers can depend upon it year after year,
and if you engage with us (whole or spare time) we will

HARD   TIMES
Seems to be the cry with many merchants because
all the patronage in the Kootenay does not go their
way. While we do not claim to have all Kootenay,
we do claim, and in fact we know, that we have the
majority of the best customers in Nelson and vicinity; and this is quite feasible, too, when you consider the quality of our goods as compared with the
prices of others We have no reason for crying
"hard times" so long as the business is coming
our way.

OUR PRICES ALWAYS THE LOWEST.
NO circumstances or conditions exist that make it possible for competition to under sell us. "Giving better
values than others" is the basic prop of this whole business. Kerr & Co's. was begun, has succeeded
and will be continued on that principle. Under every possible stress and exigency we sustain our well
konwn policy. If another dealer, as a sporadic expedient or experiment, cuts his regular rate on any
line of goods to match ours, we immediately indulge in still larger reductions. The market is watched with tireless vigilenco, and whenever we find that a house, for mere sensational effect, has paralleled a price established by
us, we cut under.    Here's a page full of proof that vindicates our claim.

A BUSY WEEK.
Good Progress Made   on   the Work at
the Columbia   River Bridge.
During tbe past week more worn
has_been done at the bridge across the
Columbia river near Robson than during any previous week since the enterprise was commenced, although
the contractor departed from his custom and permitted work to proceed
on Sunday last. The two deep water
piers are now well above the level of
the river and a continuous supply of
stone delivered from the cars on the
Robson slip by barge at the work,
equal to 50 yards daily, will keep the
masons on No. 2 pier fully occupied
No. 3 pier is well advanced, the
supply of stone for this portion of the
work being delivered from the SproatB
Landing spur. The pivot pier, No.
4, is about completed except the coping, which has been delayed owing to
a car loaded with stone having Jbeen
disabled.
Should the river not rise to spring
flood before the usual period there is
every possibility of the masonry be
ing completed. It is understood the
contractor will not be compelled to
resort to Sunday work again in order
to finish hi. contract within the stipulated period.
TO CURE THE GRIP IN TWO DAY8
Laxative Bromo-Qirinirie removes the cause.

the Hall Mining and Smelting Co.
Ltd., of Nelson. The heat of the fire
softened the iron and the poking
cause the bar to twist itself into the
perfect knot shown in the picture.
We are indebted to Mr. Ian C. Camp>
bel, of Nelson, B. C, for this."

People who do not know how tu select the right kind of food to sustain
them become ill, and some sort nf disease will show forth. It Is worth
one's while to know of these facts. A
young woman ut Grindstone City,
Mich., Mrs. A. P. Sage, began to run
down while she was at school. She
finally broke down completely and was
taken seriously ill with a number of
different troubles. The stomucb trouble was the most serious one. Her
heart also troubled her so she had to
sit up high in bed as possible. This
was caused however by her s'omaeh.
She says, "In the morning 1 would
be no weak I could hardly move. I
was kept on the simplest foods.prinel-
pally liquids. After some months, I
seemed to get n little better, then I
got worse, so thut 1 finally was
brought to the point of death from
non-assimilation of food,"
At this time a lady recommended
Grape-Nuts Food. She says "Little
did I think what a help it was to become to mc. I became greatly inter
ested when I read the description on
the box, that the food was pro-digested and In the shape of grape-sugar. I
had been unable to digest anything
starchy at all, but I began on Grape-
Nuts and it was so grateful to the
taste, and soothed my stomach so well
that I have been using it ever since,
and have never grown tired of it.
My stomach trouble Is entirely gone.
I am much stronger now and can
ride a bicycle and take long walks,
and have gained very considerably in
weight, all of which I owe to Grape-
JJuts Food."
