|Dr. George F. Shrady of New York
city, in an inteiview published in the
Herald commenting upon the dispatch, said that the medical profession did not place much confidence iu
the serum treatment of tuberculosis,
lie said:
"The medical profession now holds,
after centuries of experiments, that
the proper treatment for tuberculosis
is a change to dry, pure air. The impression that men are not cured of
consumption, is a prevalent and an
erroneous one. Thero have been many
thousands of cure . The fact that Dr.
Villnr does not give the formula of
his remedy would prejudice the medical profssion against it. A remedy
designed to benefit the human race
should be as free as air or wuter."
THE LOCAL
LEGISLATURE
A   GIGANTIC   ENTERPRISE
A. IIK1   COMPANY     TO   OPERATE
POWER AND   LIGHT PLANTS
IN RUSSIA.
SIR     CHARLES    ROSS     AT     THE
HEAD OF  THE   DEAL���HIS
ASSOCIATES.
During his recent visit to the city
J. A. Macdonald, general superintendent of the West Kootenay Power
at Light company, gave some interesting information with regard to a giant enterprise in which the promoters of the company and other capitalists havo embarked. He stated that
the executive otliccrs of tho West Kootenay corporation had us yet but a
smattering of information regarding
the proposition but that the outlines
of the situation had been made known
to them. Tbe undertaking is no less
than a syndicate of capitalists, prominent among the number being Sir
Charles Ross, well known in Nelson
through his connection with the Ron-
nington Falls Power plant, Richard
Croker, the millionaire boss of the
Tammany wigwam in New York, and
James Ross, the Montreal street railroad magnate,with a capitalization of
a bundled million dollars to operate
lighting and power plants throughout
the empire of Russia. For political
reasons the corporation is an American institution.
Mr. Macdonald stated that the syndicate has already secured the lighting
ulants in St. Petersburg and other
large cities. It was their intention
to extend operations throughout the
empire, and arrangements have been
made with the government for exclusive privileges in many instances.
The syndicate has a corps of electrical engineers in Russia at the present
time, and it is not at all unlikely that
the principal officers of the West
Kootenay Power & Light company at
Rossland and Bonnington Falls may
receive marching orders for Russia
within the present year. Report has
it that L. A. Campbell, manager oi
the company, is slated for an important position in connection with the
syndicate's Russian concession and
that he is to be transferred to the
land of the Tzar on the completion of
the extensive additions to the plant
at lionningtou Fulls.
CURES  TUBERCULOSIS.
An Argentine Army Surgeon Seems to
Have Found the Secret.
New York, April 27.���A dispatch to
the Herald from Buenos Ayres says:
Dr. Carlos L, Villa., an Argentine
army surgeon, has just published u report of the treatment of 50 cases of
tuberculosis with his serum at the
military hospital, in this city. Tlie
treatment extended from December 2,
1000, to April 20, 1901. Tuberculosis
in the early stages, says   Dr.   Viliur,

How Secret Process in Gun Making
Leaked Out.
PariB, April 27.���The spy who has
been arrested here on a charge of
having communicated to Herr Krupp
the secret of manufacture ot euns at
the Commentary arms factory, Ib a
Pole named Ivanovitz. He was a head
waiter at tho Hotel Chatham in Paris.
During on absence last winter he was

suborned a number of employes of
the Commentary arms factory into betraying for Krupp the secret in tho
process of manufacturing a certain
metal employed for cannon and sliots
in the Commentary factory. Pour of
tho factory workmen have been arrested. Much interest is displayed in
the Pole's arrest but there is no excitement overit, as the secrets divulged are industrial and do uot concern   tho state.
Sessional Indemnity of the
Members Increased to
$800.

Fiscal Year.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Victoria, April 27.���Hereafter tho
sessional indemnity of the members of
the British Columbia legislature will
be (fHOO. Provision is mado for the increase in estimates brought down by
the government yesterday, and is in
response to a round robin presented
and signed by most of the members,

and of over 8250,000 in expenditures
as compared with last year.
There are small increases generally
all along the line, due to incieased
needs of a growing province. The allowance to members of the legislature,
now 8000, is increased to 8800. Public works are placed at 8800,0OO,an increase of 8140,000.

THE MOUNTAIN HOTELS
C.P.R. Western Resorts? Improved for
the Summer  Tourists.
Walter Pratt, Jr., superintendent of the dining and sleeping car department, has returned to Revelstoke
from a trip of inspection through thei
moutain summer resorts. He anticipates that a very large number of
tourists from all over the world wilL
visit the Rockies this summer and
the company aro making preparations,
already for the opening of the hotelB-
and for numerous changes that will be
made for the increased accommodation,
required.
The Swiss guides who for the past
two years have been stationed at Banff:
aud Glacier to assist tourists and
mountain climbers in their .journeys,
into the interior will return again
this summer. A departure is to be
made this summer which will doubtless be very acceptable to holiday
seekers wishing to enjpy'the pleasant
mountain air during their stay as
much as possible. Shelters are to be
erected at different places along the
trails, which are being improved and
ponies will be provided for parties to
make trips of from three or four duys
from the hotels. A guide will accompany each party and they will also be
given tents und camping equipment.
Speaking of the changes to be made
in the hotels. Mr. Pratt said that at
Field work was started on the addition to the hotel there which gives an
increase of thirty-five rooms, all to bo
finished in the most up to d��te style,
The North Bend hotel is also being
eulurged. The Sicauiou. hotel, situat
ed on the banks of the Shuswap lake, | TTTp   BOERS
promises to be a very  popular  resort   ������ ' ' "��"JJitlw
this summer. The hotel is a cosy, romantic little place with twenty-five
bedrooms and having a delightful situation. The lake provides the best Ily
Hshing in the country and there will
be several house boats ou the lake to
accommodate pavties of six to ten.
These liouse boats will be moved
about by means of steam tugs. The
trails to Emerald lake and the Great
Falls glacier, north of Field, will be
improved this year so that the beauties of these places can be seen with
comfort.
A WONDERFUL CATCn.
Vancouver, April 37.���Tho fishing
steamer New England oas established
a new record. She arrived in port
yesterday from the north end of Vancouver island, where in a single day
the catch aggregated 110,000 pounds of
fish. On several occasions the 100,000
mark has been reached for a day's
fishing, but never before  exceeded.

GROWS NEST OPERATIONS
VICE-PRESIDENT     ROBERT    JAFFRAY INTERVIEWED AFTER A
TRIP OF INSPECTION.
EXPECTS RAILWAY COMPETITION
WILL LESSEN COST OF COAL
TO   CONSUMERS.
In a recent issuo of the Winnipeg
Free Press appeared the following:
Mr. Robert Jaffray of Toronto, president of the Toronto Globe Co., and
vice-president of the Crow's Nest Coal
Co., arrived in the city yesterday on
his way home after a visit to the west
where he has been looking over the
Crow's Nest Pass properties in which
he is interested. Mr. Jaffray was
seen yesterday at the Clarendon and
in the course of an interivew stated
that he was very well pleased with
what he had seen at the Crow's Nest.
Everything there is progressing nicely
with tliu coai raining operations and
he was gratified with the prospect for
an increased output of coal. The
Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co.'s undertakings are already quite extensive as the
men employed by the company itself
and the contractors working for the
company now numbe-- about ono thousand and the monthly pay roll approximates about 840,000. The company is
now carrying on operations at three
different points in the coal fields-
Coal creek, or Fernie. Morrissey creek
and Michel. Coal is being shipped
from Fernie and Michel, at the rate
of 70 or 80 carloads a day and this
amount will probably be increased
shortly. As yet, development work
only is being done at Morrissey creek,
but it is expected that shipments will
soon begin from this point also. The
output will be increased gradually and
Mr. Jaffray anticipates that within
four or five years it will reach a daily
total of nine or ten thousand tons. At
present the output is about seventeen
hundred tons per day. The company is
also making a feature of the manufacture of coke hand at Fernie there are
now 312 coke ovens finished and in
use, it is expected to increase this
number to about 500 during the year.
Preparations are being made for the
construction ot 400 ovens at Michel
this year and one or two hundred at
Morrissey. The season in which these
ovens can he erected in is shoit, lasting only from May until November,
and there are difficulties with regard
to freight and labor to be overcome,
but Mr. Jaffray expects to have 1,000
coke ovens ready and in use by the
time the new railway gets in.
Regarding the new railway, lie said
that he expected to hear of the granting of the charter to build very soon;
it will run from the Crow's Nest PasB
to the boundary, and the Great North-
ren will build a branch up to meet it.
He is of the opinion that the railway
competition will tend to still further
lessen the cost of coal to the consumer, although even now it is very low.
the "run of the mine" being delivored
f.o.b. at the mine for $2 a ton. After
that, as Mr. Jaffray says, the price of
the coal is a matter between the con-
suiLer and the railways. The demand
for coal for the Hritish Columbia
smelting industry is slackening off of
late, although Mr. Jaffray is of the
opinion that the industry will greatly extend if the ore shipments are
good. The silver lead ores are good,
but owing to the fact that the American Smelting Trust has stopped taking
them, very little has been done with
them of   late.    Other ores  are not  so

A.arshal Suppressing Disloyal
Utterances���Pro Boer's
Reception.
London, April 28.���Henry MaSSltig-
ham, writing in the Daily News says:
"The BoerS uro greatly worn nnd bar-
rassed and they yearn for a settlement, but they will not trust any settlement on Cliamberluin-Milner terms.
They would, however, surrender vhc
whole of Johannesburg and Rand gold
fields district to Great Britain on condition that independence is restored to
the Orange Free State and that Trans-
vaalers were allowed to found a republic in the wild uncultivated north,
subject to British control of foreign
affairs."
Illoeinfoiit.iii, Orange River Colony,
April 27.���Tho provost marshal, presiding over a court of sunimaiy jurisdiction, has announced his intention
to suppress disloyal utterances. lie
has ordered a British subject named
Mitchell to be deported to Ceylon lor
abasing an army order to the effect
that householders shall suspend a
board outside of their doors, giving
the names of all the occupants of that
particular house.
Cape Town, April 27,���Eight cases
of bubonic plague were reported here
yesterday, four of which were European and four colored persons. Two
Europeans and three colored persons
died of the plague.
Edinburgh, April 28..���J. II. Merri-
man, ex-treasurer of Cape Colony,
who, with J. W. Sauer, is now representing the Afrikander bund in Great
Britain and urging the immediate federation of South Africa into a self-
governing community, under a Mag,
addressed a meeting of 3,000 in Wav-
erly market, Edinburgh. Before he
could proceed it was necessary to suppress organized disturbances by ejecting a large number of cat-callers and
howlers and arresting several persons
for assault. Eighty policemen were
needed to keep order inside the hall,
while a large force of mounted police
outside prevented them from raiding
the hall, Several persons were injured in the scrimmiges.
Fifteen thousand people waited to
see Merriman when he emerged from
the building, but he managed to make
his exit unobserved by a private door.
FROM SEAT  OF WAR.
Returned British Officer Talks of the
Transvaal and Africa.
Vancouver, B. C, April 27.���Major
Boulanger was a passenger on the last
Empress of China from the Orient.
He stated that he was on the staff of
Lord Roberts in South Africa all
through the war until they reached
Pretoria. He wa- lien sen1 by L
Roberts as special courier to the British commander at Pekin, at tlie same-
time escorting 300 Boer outlaws to
Ceylon. The papers that he carried
were advices from Lord Roberts iu
connection with his lordship's contemplated radical reforms in the Hritish aimy. Major Boulanger says that
no living man can intelligently size
up the situation in South Africa.
Guerilla wurfare may last indefinitely
or the end may come tomorrow. He
will never believe that Dewet and his
wily associates have been captured until he bears it from the war office.
The major brings out tho first authentic news of the international fracas
between Russia and Japan over the
Taku-Pekin railway He says: "In
the first place Britain made a grave
blunder by handing tho railway over
to Russia, and it was only secured
again after long effort and endless diplomacy. The railway was being repaired by the British when a Russian
civilian claimed that the men were
digging up his property, he appealed
to the Russian consul who stutioncilfa
picket on the spit. Tbe British work
men stopped digging, lint the British
stationed a larger picket than the
Russians alongside the Russian picket. The Russiau civilian had no claim
to the property as there was no
land registrar and the man had no
deed. General Waldersee was appealed to and he visited Tien Tsin, and
on looking over the situation said to
tlie Bosnians, 'Remove your men.
This is a matter for the courts not
for the military,' lie then invited
both pickets to lunch with him and
that wns the end of tin- matter.'1
Major Boulanger continuing, said,
"Tho Russians have aoted like uncivilized on iii Jli y wi re
vicious, atroa.-iou.-j and unreasonable,
so much so thai the French officers
and officers of other nationalities cut
thoni socially on sight. The Russians
are playing a foxy game in the Manchuria affair. There will bo no war
between Japan aud Russia. Russia
will not risk (bat. Although tlie relations between llritain und Japan
are very friendly and although tin'ie
are no political understandings, Russia would take no chances from the
alliance of these two powers against
her, but Russia does not intend to
leave Muii.liurla, although she has
promised Japan to do so. The Manchuria railway has cost many millions
of dollars and Russia will not give it
up. but will continue from time to
time on one excuse or another to hold
hor ground.
TRAM FARES

MID-WEEK  HALF HOLIDAY
THE       THURSDAY       AFTERNOON
CLOSINU-   MOVEMENT GOING
TO HE A .SUCCESS.
NEARLY   EVERY    MERCHANT    IN
THE CITY  HAS   SIGNED THE
AGREEMENT.
Tho Thursday afternoon closing
movement in Nelson is going to be a
success. Nearly every merchant in the
city has already signed the agreement already published in these columns, and those whose signatures
have not yet been obtained have nearly all expressed their willLigncsa to
join in the movement.
Next Thursday afternoon, therefore, will be observed in Nelson as a
general holiday and if the agreement
is lived up to every Thursday afternoon during tho months of May June,
July and August will be likewise observed. After the first Thursday it
will of ochirse rest with tbe merchants
themselves as to whether it will continue or not. Tho agreement is so
worded that a violation on tho part
of any one merchant releases all others in the same line of business. It is
not believed that anyone will desire
to take the responsibility of upset
ting the work already done and that
anyone will prove false to the agreement.
On Tuesday next circulars will be
sent to every home iu Nelson notifying the citizens that on Thursday
noon at 12 o'clock every store in tin
city will be closed and asking them to
do their shopping in the morning.
In addition to this every store, in the
city will be supplied witli cards bearing the inscription, "This store will
be closed on every Thursday at 12
o'clock noon during the months of
May, June, July and August." Notices will be sent also to the mines
and surrounding towns so that the
entire locality will know that then-
is no shipping to be done in Nelson

money to defray tne expense of liiis
advertising has been I'aiscd among
the clerks of the city who will be the
ones most benefited.
To those who have been opposed to
the movement it has heen pointed ou!
that Nelson is doing now only that
which has been done by eastern toWni
and cities, both in Canada and the
United Slates for some time past. Ii,
the Old Country, too, a midweek oi
Saturday half Holiday has been the
custom for years. Large employers of
clerks have found thut their business
lias not been effected in the /slightest
degree by such a move. In fact in
many instances employers have stated
that they have found a better feeling.
a feeling of greater loyalty among
their employes because of this concession. That the same results will be
obtained in Nelson there is little
doubt. Nelson employers and employes are the same as those the worjd
over and what is good fur others is
good for tliein. .
Quebec, April 87.'���-Picard, confidential cleik of Mr. Arcnuil, who disappeared yesterday, left a letter in
winch he confessed to his employ8i
that he had lost 830,000 belonging to
him.    lie asked to lie forgiven.
Nelson Electric Tramway Co.
Announce a Concession
to Patrons.
Fares Reduced to Five Cents
On and After the First
of May.
The Nelson Electric Tramway company licld a meeting yesterday and decided to supply a long felt want of the
regular travelling public by reducing
their fare to live cenls. They think
that the regular patrons should have
some advantage over the stray passengers not operating from philanthropic
ideas, but that it is the regular pas
senger travelling daily on the line
that pays to help swell the receipts.
Tickets, therefore, will be supplied
to conductors or at the olliee 10 for no
cents. The company feel they cannot
make a further reduction to the work-
ingmen but this live cent faro will
answer the constant petition of a
cheap fare all day. The general restriction of the early morning and returning from work cheap fares will
therefore he done away with. This
is the greatest bugbear tramway companies have, by the public not understanding the hours they can travel
with such tickets and tlie company
feel that the workingmen should not
grumble at not having their schedule
of prices further reduced and feel that
the concession should meet all demands. The cars will still be run on
the same time, 20 minute service,
leaving the termini at tho hour,
twenty past, and twenty to. Passengers notifying conductors can always
be taken to outgoing trains and cars
meet the 11.811 a. m. and 10:10 p. in.
trains. Last car leaves the up town
terminus at 10:20 p. m. This reduction comes into effect on May 1st.
CONTROL   OF   SALMON.
Cauners and Fishermen Dubious as to
Fisheries Control.
Vancouver, 11. C, April 27.���Tho
uncertainty prevailing as to the future of the control of the salmon of
thin province is proving cmbarrassi-ng
lo the canners. Several petitions have
been presented to the provincial government asking that the control o.
the salmon fishery affairs of this prov-
iecc should be vested in the province
Instead of the Dominion. Already fishing has begun in the nortb, and In a
few weeks the time will arrive when
licenses must be taken out for fishing
in the Fraser river. The dinners and
Hie fishermen are as yet uncertain as
to whom thev must pay. The preference that has been evinced in favor
of thu provincial government|is_a decided one, for it has been proved more
nr less conclusively in years gone by
that Ottawa is at too great a distance
lo properly and easily administer the
affairs of the industry. If Dominion
lakes conliol of the fisheries the whole
machinery of the provincial fishing
department will have to be wiped out
if existence, One of the great needs
it the present time in this matter is
the establishment of hatcheries and it
Is very desirable that some action
should be taken in this matter during
the present year. The Americans on
I'ugoi Sound apnear to be wilhuir to
take the matter up and the recent
suggestion of United States Consul
Dudley, of Vancouver, to construct
and equip joint international hatcheries is a practical one that should
lead to reults.

CARGO OF CELESTIALS.
Vancouver, April 27.���The steamer
Empress of China, whicli has just arrived in Vancouver from the Orient,
had on board 500 Chinamen. To
guarantee the head tax of 8100 ou
each, the Canadian Pacific Railway
deposited with the Dominion government 8500 to cover the whole of the
Oriental cargo. For each Chinaman
who can prove thut he has been in
Canada before 8100 of this amount
will be returned to the company and
the latter will of couise collect at
Vancouver for the Chinese who are
Immigrants. Many of the Chinesu
passengers left for the eastern states
and others for Mexico where they will

THE POLITICAL   SITUATION.
The events of the past week in mat-
teis political have in all conscience
been exciting enough. Tho legislature
was nol in session yesterday and no
dispatches were leceived regarding
tlie crisis. Among close students of
the situation, however, the opinion is
Unanimous that startling developments
may be looked for almost immediately.
The government, while possessing
sufficient numerical strength to leave
no room for doubt as to its ability
to hold on to ollice for some time, is
yet in such an extraordinary position as to make it apparent to the
most casual observer that complications may arise at any moment, which
may result in disaster. As we remarked before, ,Ioe Martin's connection with any party is enough to
damn it in the eyes of the people of
tins province. The Dunsmuii govern
ment may imagine that it has done a
very clever tb'ng in securing the support of Mr. Martin, but unless we are
ve-y much mistaken it will discover
very speedily that it has made a very
great mistake. Joe Martin is a thoroughly discredited politician. The
people of British Columbia have no
use for him. He played horse with
this province when he was in power
until it stunk in the nostrils of investors all over the world. Now he has
joined hands with the Dunsmuir government and may he expected to be
largely instrumental in directing its
policy. Such action will not be welcomed by the people and the government will assuredly pay the   penalty.
THE   RAILWAY     SUBSIDY    BILL.
Immediately upon the announcement of the terms upon which the
government would subidi/.e the railways which are projected in the remarkable "railway policy" which has
been put forward, The Miner declared
that the clause relegating to the government power to alter conditions at
any time was in itself sufficient to
damn tlie proposal. It is very gratifying to note that this contention is
supported by no less an authority than
the sedate aud conservative News-Advertiser of Vancouver, Mr. Cotton's
organ. Commenting on the bill, the
News-Advertiser says there is one
detail which, while not affecting its
object or principle, is so objectionable
that it is not necessary for us to delay
a single day in expressing our strong
condemnation of it. We refer to subsection (g) of section 10 of tbe bill
which reads as follows: "That the
conditions of this section may be varied at any time, and so from time to
time and as often as the lieutenant-
governor in conncil may deem advisable; always provided, that control of
the subject-matter referred to in this
section by the government of Britisli
Columbia be not abrogated," Section 10 includes the dates on which
construction of the contemplated railways must be commenced; the time
when tlie_subsidies shall be payable;
the condition that four per ce_t. of
the earnings of the railways shall be
paid to_the province and the security
for such payment j the limitations of
the routes of said railways; the maintenance of provincial control over
freight and passenger rates; the
methods by which the piovince may
acquire the ownership of the lines;
tlie prohibition of any action whereby tho lines way pass from the jurisdiction of the province to that of the
Dominion and other provisions incidental to or connected with tho foregoing matteis. Upon the basis of
these definite and important provisions the legislature is asked to sane-
ton donations of tho public money to
these enterprises: in the form of subsidies. It is impossible to avoid the
conclusion that these provisions are
inserted as showing tho consideration���assumed by the government to
be valunbli>-which the promoters of
these schemes are willing to give Id
j-eturn for gifts   to the largs approxi-
Nelson Daily Miner, Sunday. April _R, 1900
mate araouut ut 65,000,000. Yot by
sub-section (g) the government proposes to give the lieutenant-governor
iu eouucil (which is, of course, only
the official term for the government)
absolute power to vary from lime to
time and as often as it may deem advisable all these important conditions.
The only restriction proposed ou this
extraordinary exercise of power by
the government is that "the control
of the subject-muttcis referred to in
this section by the government of Britisli Columbia be not abrogate-l." It
does not require a person to have a
legal training to see that the restriction proposed amounts practically to
nothing. In short, should sub-section (g) be allowed to remain in thu
bill, the wishes of the legislature, |
the stipulations and conditions which I
it may suppose it imposes by the
terms uf tlie Hill, would amount to
nothing. For example all these lilies ,
must, by sub section (a) be eominenc- \
ed by a certain fixed date, Under the
power sought to be vested in the lieutenant governor in conncil by subsection (g) the date might be changed
lor one or all of the lines. The condition that a certain percentage of
gross earnings shall bo paid to the
province might be so "varied" that
one railway should pay less than the
rate mentioned and another more.
And so on through all the conditions
and stipulation.,this power to "vary"
might be exercised in a manner and
to an extent that would either nullify
or greatly nmdi'y tlie view held hy
the legislature and whicli induced it
to pass the bill, it is possible that
in drafting the bill the government
did not perceive tlie immense Scope of
sub-section (g). If that be the case,
it will, we think, on its attention being called to it, expunge the clause.
If, however, it had the sub-section
inserted with the object of placing in
its hand the power to make most radical and substantial changes in matters which the legislature would undoubtedly consider as material and us
deciding its action in passing a measure of so much importance to the provincial taxpayers, we must express
the deliberate opinion thut the government is seeking authority which
it has not right to exercise, and
which trenches most dangerously on
that control which the l.gislatuie
alone should have over provincial interests.

All the independent newpapers in
the country are denouncing the government's preposterous railway
policy.      	
About the only thing which the
government has accompished thus
far is the increasing of the sessional
indemnity from $000 to SHOO. Tho
needs of the country can wait yet
awhile
CURRENT COMMENT
The railway policy submitted to
the legislature is the menu of a bar-
mecide feast. While it outlines the
construction of several important rail
ways, it gives the province neither
government owned railways nor permits of construction by corporations.
If it means anything at all it means
that by the government under its
right to control rates (If it were
possible to build railways under the
terms suggested), must maintain
these rates sufficiently high to ensure
that the earning power of tlie roads
will admit of a four per cent "pot-
latch" to the government. This piebald policy practically precludes railway construction of any kind.���
Greenwood Miner.
The truth may as well be told now
as at any other time. The government asks for ��5,000,000 to bonus railways of whicli the most important
will bo built by the C. P. R. and enable that corporation to fasten its
tentacles securely in the lich mineral
belts of the province. It iB true that
a number of conditions are laid down
under which the railways aie to be
built, but the condition demanded by
the people that whether the Coast-
Kootenay road be built or not, it
shall not be built by the C. P. R., is
lacking and as the government will
give no assurances on the subject,
there can be little doubt of the use
it is intended to make of the extraordinary powers it asks.���Nanaimo
Herald.
The railway policy of the government is said to have been brought
down, We are rather sceptical about
that. The government asks power to
borrow five million dollars, which it
proposes to lay out as it sees lit without going through the formality of
consulting the legislature. Paiagraph
of section 10, in which what purports
to be the railway policy of the administration is set forth, says, "That
the conditions of this section may In-
varied at any time, and so from
time to time and as often as the lieutenant governor in council (which is
the government), may deem advisable." A legislature which will
swallow that might as well go out of
the legislative business. The government's railway policy has not been
made known, but it has at least
shown its hand sufficiently to enable
a fairly shrewd guess to bo made as
to what its policy is. When it is
made known it will be found that it
is more in the interests of corporations than of the people of British
Columbia. ��� Victoria Times.

so, indeed, that if they can get a
guarantee of 300 tons of ore daily they
will build a railway between (irand

their ores and are equally anxious to

GOOD I'laACTlCE���
The Rugby football players had a
lively practice at the iccreution
ground, yesterday afternoon. The
team is in good shape for the match
with CranbiooK on Saturday next and
the exhibition promises to be well
worth witnessing.
HAND CONCERT���
The members of the Kochy Mountain Bangers1 hand are arranging to
hold an open-air entertainment at an
early OHte, probably this week, on
Maker street. The band has heen practicing steadily for some months and
has an excellent repertoire of popular
anil classical music prepared.

HIGHLAND COLONEL���
Lieutenanl-Cilonel VV. C. Macdonald, of Toronto, was in the city yesterday on business in connection with
the Confederation Life with which
he is connected. Colonel Macdonald is
the officer commanding the Forty-
Eighth Highlanders of Toronto, rne
of the two Highlander corps in Can-
lid- and as fine a militia regiment as
is numbered on the roll of the Canadian militia.
THE GATE SYSTEM���
After today the gate system will be
enforced in connection with the C. P.
R. steamers, Under this arrangement
no one will be permitted to board the
steamers without producing a ticket
indicating their destination. The
travelling public will thus be compelled to purchase tickets at the C. P, li.
uptown ollice or at the ollice on the
eity   wharf.
THE EMERALD DUET���
Messrs. Smith and Miller, the famous Emerald Duet, gospel temperance singers and speakers, arrived in
the c'ty yesterday by steamer Moyie.
The evangelists will hold three meetings during their stay. Mass meetings will be held in the opera house
this afternoon at 3:4,1 and in the evening immediately at the close of the
services in the churches. Collections
will be taken at these services to defray cost of the liouse.
AT THE SHIPYARDS���
The C. P. R. shipyards continue to
be a busy spot, although the rush of
work is over for thfe present. The
mechanical department is busy witli
tho repairs to the steamer Nelson and
the carpenters aie working on the
pontoon for the Lardo wharf. The
latter will be launched shortly and
taken to Lardo al once as the slip
there must he got into working order
as early us possible.
TO CURE THE GRIP IN TWO DAYS
Laxative Broino-Qiiiniiio removes the ciuihc.
ASSOCIATION FCOTIIAI.L���
A movement is on foot to reorganize
tlie Nelson association football club
for the coming summer. Last year's
team was most successful and carried
Nelson's colors to victory on a number
of occasions. The game was fairly
well patronized and if other pastimes
a��*e not gone into it is quite likely
that the association game might enjoy
the popularity which l.icrosse and
baseball has enjoyed iu past seasons
A meeting will be held this week to
go into the matter.
THE BUILDING SEASON-
While over a score of residences are
under way in Nelson at the present
time, it may be stated that up to the
present time the building operations
are hardly up to the mark of last
year at this time. A prominent architect in discussing the situation said
yesterday, "A number of people who
intend building this summer are
letting a golden opportunity pa��s. At
the present time a building can be
erected at less cost than would have
been the case at this time last year
Later on us more work gets under
way this may not be the case, but in
any event building will not be a cent
more expensive- now than last year.
CONGREGATIONAL CnURCH���
Considerable interest is being manifested in the Odd Fellow's church parade to Emmanuel church this afternoon at a o'clock. During the service
the Rocky Mountuin Rangers band
will play the anthem "To Thee O
Lord." At the evening service Rev.
Wiliam Munroe will preach on "Citizenship Life or Politics." The musical
piogramme includes the anthems,
"Make a Joyful Noise," and "Now
the Day is Over," and the solo "The
Children's Home," by R.Thompson.
THEjlOAT CLUB���
The executive of the Nelson Boat
club is meeting with much encouragement in its canvass for new members,
and the indications are that the organization will enter the rowing season with a strong membership roll.
A general meeting of the club will
take place early in the new month
and several committee meetings are to
be heid prior to the general meeting,
In order that tho executive may have
a comprehensive programme mupped
out for the members to discuss.
A HOT CONTEST���
The sparring contest nt the opera
house on Tuesday evening merits a
bumper bonse. It is in the way of a
benefit for Dick Slugg, the popular
lightweight, who has spaired in this
city ou a dozen occasions. Slugg bus
always been at the disposal of promoters of smoking concerts for patriotic and charitable purposes and has
more than once suffered pecuniary
loss through his willingness to oblige
in this respect. The proceeds of
Tuesday's entertainment will largely
go to him and it is up to the citizens
of Nelson to see that he gets a substantia) purse. Aside from this consideration it is safe to predict a fast contest and one that will repay the spectator for the outlay of time und the
uiodernle gate fee.

QUESTION   ANSWERED.
Yes.August Flower still lias the largest sale of any medicine in the civilized world. Your mothers and grand
mothers never thought of using uny
thing else for Indigestion or biliousness. Doctors were scarce, and they
seldom beard of Appendicitis, Nervou
Prostration or Heart fa!lure, 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 wilh
headaches antl other aches. You only
need a few doses of Green's August
Flower, in liquid form, to make you
satisfied there is nothing serious the
matter with you. For sale by VV. P.
