Winnipeg, Nov. 20.���The Northwest
Farmer, westornCanuda's farm journal,
in its issue of todny publishes an exhaustive review of the western crop
yields for the past year gathered from
correspondents of the paper in Manitoba and the Territories, who were
asked to furnish reliable information
as to the returns from this year's orop
and the conditions during the past
season, as woll as to ascertain the
amount of land in readiness for next
year's work.
Introducing the reports the Northwest Farmer says : Striktrg an aver-
ago of tho_yie;ds reported, we obtain
the following results: Manitoba���
Wheat, 23.76 nushels to the acre;
oats, 44.44; barley, 85.431 flax, 18,60.
In Assinaboia���Wheat 2!) ill bushels;
oats, 50.00; barley, 39.03; Flax,
17.50.
Alberta���Wheat, 30.20 bushels;
oats, 54.13; barley 37.it.
Saskatchewan   ���   Wheat, 28.50
bushels; oats, 50.55; barley, 38.33
We think these averages pretty ac
curately represent the actual crop
returns for the divisions ot the
country which they represent. No
estimated yield for the crops in the
terirtories has ever before been prepared during the growing season by
the territorial list of agriculture,- but
it is interesting to compare the figures
obtained from our correspendects
w'th the August crop bulletin issnec1
by the department of agriculture for
Maniotba. That report gave estimates
from the standing orops as follows:
Wheat, 24 28 bushels; oats, 48.78
bushels; barley, 33.08 bushels. With
the more actual information which
threshing results have enabled our
ooirespondents to gather it will be
seen that the average for the wheat
crop has been slightly lowered while
those of oots and bailey have been
raised. It will be noticed that the
best yields as a rule are reported from
the parts of Manitoba lying to tho
north, a fact whieh may be more or
less duo to the greater percentage of
newer lands being brought into cultivation in these districts and which
also suggests that perhaps the productiveness of tbe land in  what wc  have
CALAMITY
ON THE RAILS
New York, Nov , 20.���Anturo de,
Hrigard, consul-general of Colombia,
today received private despatches informing him that the liberals had
surprised and captured the Oity of
Colon last night. His telegrams
p)ace the loss at 12 killed and 30
wounded.
Further advices state that on receipt
of the news that General Alban, the
military commandbr of the Isthmus,
had started to attack the liberals at
Chorrora, near Panama, the latter
detached 160 men under General Patin
to attack Colon. This force embarked
at Los Cascades station on board a
train bound from Panama to Colon
yesterday evening, previously cutting
off telegraphic communication across
tho Isthmus. On arriving at the outskirts of Colon, where the government
usually maintained a small guard,
the liberals left the train and tn the
initial skirmish which began soon
afterwards, Patin was killed.
The command of the liberals then
devolved ou Colonel I'rederioo Har-
retra and they continued their march
on to Colon ariiving there a few
minutes after the train thus surprising the whole town. The government
troojis at Colon were outnumbered by
the liberals. Fighting immediately
began at the barracks which were
soon taken. Senor Jane, a judge of
the criminal court, was killed and
Senor Mnskus, the dlstriot representative of the department of the
interior, was mortally wounded.
Fighting subsequently occurred at the
town hall which was also taken by
the liberals. Among the prisoners
captured there by the liberals were
the prefect guardian and the commandant of police. Senor Paroles, the
mayor,managed to reach the gunboat,
General Pinzin, which sailed last
night for a destination unknown,
probably Carthagenia.
The whole affair was over in less
than three hours. Communication
with Panama was restored today.
This reveals that no lighting has occurred there, that everything is quiet,
and country is still in the hands of
the government.
The  issue   now entirely depends on

In-
Isthmus of Panama that communication had actual I.v been stopped in such
a fashion as to seem to requiro the interference of the United Stales naval
forces. The first news of tlic trouble
at Colon oarae from the U. 8. consul-
general at Panama. He telegraphed
the state department that a consider- iTWO Heavy ThrOUgfl Passable number of Liberals had taken
possession of the railroad, lie did not!
indioate where, and arriving at a certain point had cut the telegraph wires
and taken up a rail thus -breaking
communication, luitor thero came a
second message from Consul-
General Cndger announcing that
Colon had been taken. This was confirmed more explicitly by U. S. Consul
Malmoros, stationed at Colon. The
latter official said that Colon had been
taken by the rebels last night. While
all business   is   suspended   transit   is
not interrupted and American life and
property are safe and   not likely to be
in danger.
Taken   altogether   these  despatches
were regarded by the officials  here as
indicating a lack   of  purpose  on   the
part of the Liberals to   interfere with
transit across the Isthmus.
Still   ns a result of the consultation
today   Secretary   Hill   cabled Consul-
General Cndger a direction   to  notify
all parties who are engaged in molesting or interfering   with   free   transit
across the Isthmus that such   interference must ccaae.
He  was  also   directed   to   consult
freely with Capt. Perry, the  commander   of tho U. 8. battleship Iowa now
lying   at   Panama   Capt.    Perry   was
oabled by the  secretary   to   land   marines, if necessary for tho free transit
across the Isthmus,in accordance with
the treaty rights   and   obligations   of
the United States.     At the same time
Copt.   Perry   was   enjoined   to  avoid
bloodshed,   if   possible.      Meanwhile
news came that Commander McCren of
the Machias which   is   now   lying   at
Colon had anticipated this instruction
from the navy  department by landing
a   force   oi bluejackets  at Colon   and
occupying the rnilway   station.     The
understanding at the navy department
was  that   the landing party consisted
of aWout 100 sailors, who are employed
in   lieu   of   mar'ners," of   whom   the
Machins has an insufficient force.

those from Manitoba but this is only

We do not think the reports have
anything of the "boom" collected
about them, in fact, in some cases it
may be that they are rather below
than above the actual returns. The
general tendency of the reports seems
to indicate a loss sometimes of one or
two grades of wheat on account of the
wetness of the fall, although somo
correspondents do not report much
detriment from this cause. It is gratifying to observe the general immunity
from damage by frosts; and In contrast with the season of 1000 there

SAYS HE WAS BOYCOTTED
Los Angeles, Nov. 20.���A fatal
wreck occurred on the Santa Fe railway one mile west of Franconia,
j Arizona, a switch station 20 miles of
Needles, Cai., early today. Seven
trainmen were killed, three passengers
and 14 trainmen injured.
Limited trains,east and west bound,
crashed together while runningat full
speed. The enstbound train was
drawn by two engines while the westbound train had but one locomotive.
The threo engines were crushed and
blown to pieces by an explosion which
followed the collision. Roth trains
were made up of vestibule cars of the
heaviest kind and whilo they stood
the terrific shock well and protected
the passengers of a great extent several of the ears took fire and burned
up. The dining cars, one on each
train, ono Pullman and two composite
cars were destroyed. Following is a
list of the dead: P. M. Elliott.engi-
neer, ; P.P. Goldsmith, fireman; E. F.
Iiarnhardt, barber; Walter Davorage,
waiter; W. L. Cawse, fireman; A. H.
Wiltage,fireman ; Sam Brown, waiter.
The bodies of the latter three are
missing.
The collision is said to have been
due to a disregarded order by the
crew of the westbound train, though
full particulars ou this point are as
yet lacking. From all accounts, however, it is gathered that the eastbound
train had orders to take tho siding
at Franconia and wuit the passage of
tho westbound flyer, which was running two hours late and trying to
make uptime. The enstbound train
failed to reach the siding and, as tho
westbound train did not wait for it,
tho two trains came together without
warning nnd with an awful orasb.
The boiler of the westbound engine is
said to have exploded immediately
after the crash scalding to death those
of the engine crews who had not been
killed outright.
A scene of awful confusion followed
the crash. The massive engines piled
up in an indescribable mass of broken
and twisted steel while the scalding
steam hung in a dense suffocating
cloud over the debris from which thu
agonizing ories_of the injured and
dying engine men could be heard.
The ncavy Pullmans and composite
carB jammed the dining and baggage
cars upon the heated pile of denris
carrying death to the dining car
crews and setting the cars on lire.
From the meagre details of the scenes
gathered from the passengers it is
learned that the sleeping cars with
one or two exceptions, suffered a light
damage and as a result the passengers
were afforded comparative immunity
trom injury.
At Santa Fe hendquaiters at Los
Angeles it was stated that the blame
had not been definitely settled, but
from all appearances it rests with (he
orcw of  the   westbound   train.     The
cstbouud limited carried a full
passenger list from eastern cities but
it appears none were injured,

BOUWELL IN POLITICS.
Tho entrance of a man ol the ability, character and standing of E. V.
Ilodwell, K. C, into politics is an incident which should meet with the
lioarty approval of all good citizens,
as he will be a distinct power for the
betterment of political affairs of the
province once be gets into its service,
Mr. Ilodwell is a lawyer of recognized
ability anil foi a number of years has
enjoyed a lucrative practice, and this
ho lays down, giving np his corpora
tion briefs, In order that he may more
faithfully and conscientiously serve
in his new capacity of a servant of
the people. This will involve eonsid
crable of a pecuniary loss, but we
believe that Mr, Ilodwell is unselfish
in his political aspirations and ro-
spondes to the wishes of bis friends
because be helieves that he can be of
real service to the people at a time
whon their political affairs aro in a
hopeless jumble. Mr. Hodwoll, even
amid the hard work, rush and the
constant and exacting call on his time,
consequent upon the large legal practice which he enjoyed, found time to
take an active part in public n(lairs.
Whenever a public question of importance came up be addressed the people upon it,and his views were broad,
comprehensive and statesmanlike.
There was nothing narrow nor small
about them and it was characteristic
of his speeches that they were patriotic and abounded in lofty yet practical views. They showed that he desired abovo all things to see the pro?
incc advanced to the place which its
great material resources entitle it in
the galaxy which makes up the
Dominion. The time is most oppor
tune lor the entrance of a man like
Mr. Uodrccll into politics nnd it is
certain that he will aid in bringing
order out ot ehoas and in giving us a
stable government, which is something which Is greatly needed to restore confidence, both at home
and abroad.
The platform which ho has outlined
Is certainly ono of the best that lias
yet been put forward. The first plank
is in favor of the extension of trunk
railway lines throughout the province.
The physical features of Ii. C. are
such that much of the country will
remain in its primeval condition unless opened by railways. Thore are
so many mountains that transportation by wagon over any great distance iB impossible and railways arc
absolutely essential in order to develop tbe mineral and the forest
wealth.
The plank relating to the restriction
of Mongolian immigration is worthy
ol a trial. The attempts of the province to check the Oriental evil have
only met witli failure so fat, owing to
their conflicting with imperial intor
ests. He purposes instead of legisla
ting locally to enlist the sympathy of
Ottawa, thus securing oo-operation
between the Dominion and the
provincial governments, and he thinks
that tlie two could induce the imperial
government to modify the treaties
with Japan and China so as to obtain
a restriction of emigration from these
two countries.
He reuognizes that the silver-lead
miners of the .Slocan, Lardeau and
Kast Kootenay are in such a position
lhat it would lie wisdom for the provincial and Dominion governments to
do all that can possiblv be done for
them. If elected lie would take up the
lead question with tho Federal
authorities and try to devise some
plan by v/hicii the industry could he
placed in a more advantageous position
than it is at present.
As Mr. Ilodwell is an able man and
as he stands on so beneficent a platform it seems almost a foregone conclusion that he will be elected so thai
he may be given an opportunity of
carrying out his most, meritorious
ideas.
of their time in hunting   up   and giv
ing   utterances   to   reasons     why   it
should not   be   built.    In the   mean
while   the   Sullivan   Group     Mining
company,    according to E. D. Saund
crs and   L. F. Williams, who were in
this      oity,       a      few     days     since
is      preparing        plans       for       th
construction of a refinery  and smelter
at Marysville in East Kootonay. They
state that tho   refinery   is to   be   constructed simultaneously with the smelter.     They   have   no   doubts     ''bout
securing enough   matte   to   ke       the
refinery in operation.
The people who are operating the
Sullivan Group Mining oompany for
merly controlled the Le Roi Mining
company. When they found that the
freight and treatment charges for the
haul to the Trail and the reduction in
the smelter, which was then controlled
hy F. Aug. Hoinze, were too high and
that a considerable saving could be
made by having a reduction plant of
their own, they built one at North
port. By this means tfiey reduced the
charges,for freight and treatment
from_811 per ton to less than $4.
They are receiving no bonus for tho
erection of the refinery at Marysville,
nor will thoy ask for one. _ Tbey will
be satisfied with the natural profits
which will result from the venture
and the $5 per ton bounty allowed by
tbe Dcminion government on lead
mined and refined in Canada. The
West Kootenay refinery has been
offered inducements to locate in cei
tain tewns and yet the people having
tbe projeot in hand hesitate and by
filing all sorts of objections, some of
which are of tho most frivolous nature, endeavor seemingly to throw cold
water on the scheme. They ovidently
want a mortgage on the entire silver
lead industry before they will even
consent to move. The silver-lead mine
owners should, under the circum
stances, form a company with a capi
tal of say $200,00" or $250,000, and
erect the refinery tbemclves. It now
looks as though they might have to
do this owing to the policy of masterly inactivity pursued by tbe people
who have tlie refinery project in hand.
Perhaps aftor tho Sullivan Oronp
company has shown them that there
is profit in a refinery, they will woke
up and erect one. By that time the
East Kootei ay refinery will have
secured contracts for the, bulk of the
lead matte and the West Kootenay
rotinory will have to hustle to secure
what little there is available.

There haa never been any known
discovery of a specimen of native
7,ine, says the Lead and Zinc News.
A few yenrs ago native zinc wns said
to have been discovered in northern
Alabama, hut it was not proven. The
ores of zinc are numerous and occur
all over tho world, nnd it is rather
curious that the metal has not boon
found native. No specimens of native
lead have ever been found in tho
lead region of Missouri or Kansas as
far as known, and, in fact, in no
other locality in tlie United States
with the one exception of Franklin,
New Jersey. Now Jersey has pro
duccd some specimens, but; the lead
has been in such minute particles that
the specimens were of chief value as
curiosities.

P At various times the proposal to in-
oiease the accommodaion of the city
wharf bus been under discussion. On
ono occasion the city engineer prepared plans for a double decked wharf
lo rcplaco tho present city wharf,
whicb was built by the provincial
government, and subsequently transferred to the city. Wharfage has never
been collected there.
The Dominion government hns
renounced all right to the foreshore of
the Inland waters of llritish Columbia
so tbis vests tlie title in Iho provincial governmont except to that portion, namely the part west ot linker
street, tbo title of whioh has been
transferred to tho C. I>. R. Tho Nelson Haw Sc Planing mills has a lease
to tbe portion occupied by it, and the

stands, it is understood on yearly
leases,
Small steamers, particularly, load
and discharge freiglit at considerable
Inconvenience and increased wharfage
would be a great assistance to ship-
l'ine; which gives evidence of probable
very large growth. Tho enlargement
of tlic wharf theretore, will very soon
become a pressing question. Tho

Vancouver, Nov. 20.���Ward de Ileek,
a lumber man of llriti.sh Columhia is
responsible for tbe statement that if
llritish Columbia desired to sell he.-
timber limits as the United States
does Bhe could pay off her provincial
Jebt in three years. Mr.de Heek says
that American capitalists will buy
British Columbia limits at p.o an acre
and he lias offered this sum frequently for Government lands, but has
always had to explain that British
Columbia will not sell her limits outright hut charge 10 cents an acre per
annum. The Americans, however,
decline to rout from the local leigsla-
tnre as thoy say that they buy the
iinnts for the purpose of expending
large sums of money to operate them.
If thoy rented the llritish Columbia's
government would become their landlord and could raise the rent, turn
them out or placcobuoxious restrictions
on thorn which would make them
wish they had not subjected themselves to llritish Columbia's shifting
laws. These Americans say that if
thoy oould hold limits in British
Columbia in fee simple they would
certainly build mills on the Canadian
side to work the timber, but they
must not bo tied down Dy restrictions.
The Dominion government have
rescinded the law allowing 40 cents
rebate on lumber exported, and cut
from timber secured on Dominion o
Canada timber limits, on the ground
that mill men have no disadvantage
in this connection in computing with
American mills. A short time ago
thc government inspector was astounded to And that through a miscalculation, the Canandian government wns
paying millnien live cents per thousand more in rebate than they wero
charging them in royalty. This was
stopped. Subsequently a law was
passod permitting settlers to cut all
the timber they liked oa Dominion
anils and sell it to whom thoy chose.
These sellers have been selling largely
to thc mills, und thus tho rebate was
becoming a complicated matter to
koep track of and was disallowed for
this reason as much as any other.

COFFEE COMPLEXION
Many   Ladies   Have   Poor   Complexions
from Ooffee
"Coffee canse dark colored blotches
on lay face and body. 1 had been
drinking it for a long while nnd these
blotches gradually appeared, until
finally thoy beoame permanent an1
were about as dark as coffee itsolf.
I formerly had as fine a complexion
as one could ask for. When I became
convinced that coffee was the cause of
my trouble, I changed and took to
using Postum Cereal Food Coffee, nnd
as I made it well, nceoroing Indirections, I like it very much, and have
Mince that timu Mod it entirely In
place of oolTee.
I am thankful to say I am not nervous any more, ns 1 was when I was
drinking coffee, and my complexion is
now as fair and good as it was j'enrs
ago. It is very plain that the ooffee
caused tlie trouble. Please omit my
name from public print."
Mrs. , 2081 Ogden Ave, Chicago,
III. The name of. this lady can be
given by the Postum Cereal Co., Ltd.,
Battle Creek, Mioh.
Most bad complexions are caused by
some disturbance of the stomach and
coffee is the greatest disturber of
digestion known. Almost any woman
can bave a fair complexion if she will
leave off coffee nnd ubo Postum Food
Coffee and nutritious, healthy food in
proper quantity. The food coffco furnishes certain arts of the natural
grains from the field that nature uses
to rebuild the nervous system and,
when that is In good condition, one
can depend upon a good complexion as
well as a general healthy condition of
Ihe body.

The next joint meeting of the
wholosale and retail grocers will he
held next Tuesday night at Miners'
Union hall. It is not known as yet
what aotion will he taken by either,
but it is believed that an agieement
will be arrived at if possible that will
be mutaully advantageous to both
sides in the controversy.
Tho work of removing d foot or two
of superfluous mud from the surface of
Ward street will be commenced this

roadway is in a deplorable condition
After the mud has been removed some
gravel will be used to fill the holes

roadway.

came up before Magistrate Crease at
the court house yesterday afternoon

in Nelson yesterday on his way back
from the Lardo, whither he went on

him. Rossland seems disposed to
favor Revelstoke for the bonspiel,that
city wanting it and being one in
which good ice is assured. Sandon

liKely to be a sharp contest between

exeollent presentation of A Man of
Mystery to a crowded audience at tlic
Nelson Opera house last evening. The
play contains an agreeable blending
of comedy with tragedy nnd in the

delighted the audience.     A somewhat
unusual obsraraotsr was introduced in
the mesmerist who employed his art to
aid him in living a double life with
out detection. As usual the specialties between nets wero decidedly
creditable particularly the trick
bicyclist. Tonight The Fireman's

QUEEN DRAG A SHOT.
Vienna, Nov. 20.���An unconfirmed
rumor has reached Vienna that Queen
Draga has been shot in the streets of
Belgrade. The Neue Freie Prcsse and
other Vienna papers publish various
reports, one declnring that the Servian queen was assassinated, another
that she was wounded and a third
that she had committed suicide. Reports from other sources deny tho
statement that Queen Draga was
killed and asserts that the rumor of
her death was catisod by an hysterical
scene with King Alexander. There
is no reliable information on the subject here, but it is generally believed
that a serious crisis exists in
Belgrade.
REBEL STRONGHOLD DESTROYED
Manila, Nov. 20.��� Major L. W. T.
Waller of the marine corps has cabled
Rear-Admiral Rodgers at Manila a
full and detailed account of the attnek

Three insurgent camp were destroyed,
forty bamboo cannon wero captured
and much rice aud other stoics destroyed. Tho rebel stronghold was
almost impregnable. The trails loading to it wero lined with poisoned
spears sticking from tlie ground and
were filled with bidden pitfalls.
KING'S HEALTH EXCELLENT.
London, Nov. 21.-Sir Frederick
Treves, surgeon to King Edward,
whon submitting the toast to tbe
King at a banquet at Aberdeen yesterday said it was pleasant to know
that his majesty had never enjoyed
such excellent health ns at present,
BRAIN-FOOD NONSENSE.
Another ridiculous food fad has boon
branded by the most competent
authorities, They have dispelled the
silly notion that one kind nf food is
needed for brain, another for muscles,
aud still another for bones. A correct diet will not only nourish a particular part of tho body, hut it will
sustain every other patt. Yet, however good your food may be, its nutriment is destroyed by indigestion or
dypepeia. You must prepare for their
ppearanco or prevent their coming by
aking regular dosns of Otecn's August
Flower, tho lnvonte medicine of the
healthy millions. A few doses aids
digestion, stimulates the liver to
healthy action, purifies the blood, and
mokes you feel buoyant and vigorous.
