Ilnlifax, Jan. 23.���The western men
who form a portion of the seoond
Cnn.idian Mounted rifles in camp at
Willow drove are in u condition approaching Insubordination, In the
first place, the men are put ou, because eastern members of the continued, though they arrived in Halifax
after the western men,were sent away
first on tho Manhattan. * Just as soon
as they sailed they began drawing
fl.25 per day while the western men
nre still receiving only 25 cents per
day. On Saturday the men were given
a lew hours down town. A few of
them imbibed a little too freely and
ue a lesult got into the "cooler."
Discipline at camp Is most severe and
as a result ten more men have been
discharged during tbe past two dayB
for trivial breaches of discipline. It
Is just possible that the Victorian's
departure may be delayed on account
of ihe ugly ieeli.ig which has broken
out between some of the men and the
officers, until the most turbulent can
be weeded out and replaced by new
men. The number which may be so
dischprged, is said to be in the neighborhood of SO.
WINNIPEG WINS AT HOCKEY.
REDMOND'S AMENDMENT
Big Crowd Witness a Fast (iame With
Toronto Men.
Winnipeg, Jan. 23���Thousands of
people were unable to gain admittance to the big Auditorium rink, so
great was tbe interest taken in the
secuiul match for the Stanley cup
hockey championship between the
Wellingtons of Toronto and the Victorias of this oity. The crush was
terrific and it was with great difficulty that reserved ticket holders
found their seats. Tne competing
teams were:
Wellingtons Viotorias
Morrison   goal  liro,vn
Smart  point R Flett
Ardagh  c. point M Flett
Hill forwards Gingras
Chadwick        "  Wood
McKay        "  Cadham
McLaren        "  Scanlan
W.      McFarlane   again     acted   as
referee.
Tne match was played under Manitoba rules which differ slightly from
the Ontario rules under which the first]
contest was played. The fight was
fierce from the start and 25 minutes,
10 seconds bad elapsed before the
Victorias weie able to put the puek
into the net and score tbe flrst goal.
Curing this play several players were
ruled off for rough work. Play continued for five minutes more until
lialf time was called but no goals
were scored.
After the breathing spell, the
Toronto boys started in with a rush
aud in 2 minutes, 25 seconds put in
their first goal, making the score a

soared until nine minutes when tbe
Victorias put in the fifth goal and

year with the figures 5 to 3 in favor of
tho west. There was a great demonstration at the finish and the game
Pronounced one of the finest ever played in Winnipeg. Tho vanquished
Wellingtons are being banquctted by
the Victorias tonight.
Accuhch Government of Coercive Measure While Admitting Wrongs.
Loudon, Jan. 23.���The debate in
reply to the speech from the throne
was resumed ia the [louse of Commons today by John Redmond, who
moved an amendment raising the
wholo question ot Irish grievances.
He declared that instead of remedying
the admitted wrongs, tho government
had fallen back on tho old methous of
coercion.
The Irish people would yet teach
Mr. Wyndham, the chief secretary for
Ireland, to repent his rash refusal to
grant reasonable demands of Ireland
regards the compulsory sale and purchase of land. There was no country
in the world where orime was less
frequent than in Ireland. Yet the
Coercion act had been resurrected
after a decade and had been ruthlessly
applied to scores, including mem! ers
of the House of Commons, who had
been unjustifiably imprisoned, and
trial by jury had been abulished. The
whole intellect of Ireland was against
the government and In such circumstances resistance to the government
was a duty and rebellion became
merely a question of expediency.
Though a hundred years had passed
since the union, English rule of Ireland still rested upon force and corruption and the Irish would never bo
well satisfied until they were masters
of theii own country,
Hon. P. Hayden Irish Nationalist,
seconded the   amendment.
Replying to Mr. Redmond, Mr.
Wyndham traversed almost all of his
statements and declared that no government expeoted to settle tho Irish
question but only hoped Io do a little
toward improving it and tbat the
Land aot of 18^1 was too drastic a
measure having produced a litigious
war which had ruined many people
The Chief Secretary for Ireland said
that the strongest argument against
introducting compulsion into the purchase and sale of land was that such
action would provoke every landlord
and every tenant to fight from court
to e.'urt on every disputable point. He
reiterated his conviction that tbe
power of the United Irish league was
deolining; that it had only 74
branches and that it was having a
prejudicial effect upon economies.
The present agitation, declared Mr.
Wyndham, was the work of a few
determined persons, and no man who
was not a our would hesitate to take
such steps as were open to him to suppress this wretched form of bullying
the government. Mr. Wyndham said
he was determined, while dealing
justly with Ireland, to fight for
liberty and the protection of property.
A GREAT STRIKE
IN LAST CHANGE
Rich Ore Shoot Located at the End of Long
Tunnel at a Vertical Depth of
1600 Feet.
Find Important as It Demonstrates That
the Slocan Mines Are Rich in
the Lower Levels.
One of the most important mining
strikes made in tbe Kootenays took
place when the galena ledge was
struck in the long tunnel of the Last
Chance. This tunnel waa started a
little over a year and a half ago thu
work being done with machines, the
compressed air for which was supplied from the Noble Five. Tho tunnel has been run for 1,800 feet, at a
cost of $50,000 and penetrated 150 feet
past the Bpot where the lead was
���struck. About a month ago the managers decide to raise and drift on a
slip in a barren looking section
where, however.there were some indications of the ledge.
On Saturday last the ore was struck
at a depth of 1,600 feet below the surface, wliioh makes -tbis the deepest
wurkings in the province. The ore is
of a high giade.
The property is uwned by the Last
Chance Mining company, of which H.
S. Heap is the manager at tbe mine.
Dr. Bendryx, of Los Angeles, California, is the largest owner, and J, Stin-
son, Los Angeles, the Hoott Mac
donald estate, and II. Wilson, of Viotoria, are tbe other principal owners.
It is situated on Noble Fivs moan-
tain, about two and one-quarter miles
from Sandon by rail and trawmay. It
adjoins the Noble Five property and
there is at present said to be a difficulty between the owners of the two
properties, it being over  the  apex of
the last Chance vein which is believed to run into the Noble Five
ground.
The claims comprised in the group
were located in the spring of 1892 by
J. MoQuigan who at the same time
looated tbe Panye and the Ncble Five.
It is one of the earliest shippers of
the district,llm ore running 130 ounces
of silver and 65 per cent, lead, this
proportion between the two minerals
being uniform throughout the workings, The ore was for a lung time
shipped to the Selby smelter at San
Francisco, but Utterly has been sent
to Trail.
The mine is connected with a
brunch spur of the Kiinlo and Slooan
railway by aerial tramway which was
put in about three years ago by B. C.
Hiblet.of this city. A peculiar feature
about this trawmay is that on it is
the longest single span on any tramway in the world.
The striking of tbe lead at snob a
great depth, together with the strike
uf a large body of ore on tbe lower
workings of the Payne,which occurred
lately, are very oheering evidenoes of
tbe depth of the deposits of the Slocan,
and proves thoroughly that the ores of
the Slocan rnn deep without losing in
quality. The success of this company
will have an important effect in
bringing on a livelier state of affairs
in tbe district, and will greatly assist
in opening up other properties.

formerly seoretary-treasurer of the
rural municipality of St. Boniface,
who was again arrested yesterday on
a charge of embezzling the municipal
funds, was arraigned before Magistrate Cyr this morning and pleaded
not guilty. The caBO was remanded.
Southern Planters Contend Such Step
Would Help the Trust.
Washington, Jan. 23.���The Cuban
reciprocity hearings before the Way
and Means committee today were
devoted chiefly to the cane sugar interest of Louisiana whiohj are opposing the proposed concessions tu Cuba
on the ground that it will oripple the
sugar production of thut state. A
number of the large planters and
manufacturers of the Btate were present and the allied interests in beet
sugar and tobacco, which are similarly
opposed to concessions to Cuba, were
also numerously represented.
The opening statement in both of
the Louisiana interests was made by
J.'D. Hill, of New Orleans, an extensive planter. He asserted that the
sugar trust was behind the Cuban
movement and presented statistics to
6how the result of concessions to
Cuba, making the sugar trust the
real beneficiary, constituting that
organization a colossal monopoly in
Cuba.
STRIKE NOT OFF YET.
Miners Vote on Question Affecting
Only the Le Roi Mine.
Rossland, Jan. 23.���Tbe Rossland
Mirers' union voted today on the
question of calling the strike off so
fai as thc Le Roi mine is concerned.

known only to the excoutive board of
the union. The board will publish
the result in due time. It is understood tbat concession bave been made
by the Le Roi company, but the exact
nature of these could not be learned.
It is generally felt that the terms are
satisfactory and all that is required
is tt finish up the details. The result
of the agreement, if reached, will in
no wise affect the strike wbich is still
on against the Centre Star, War
Eagle, Le Roi No. 2 and other prop
erties in tbe camp. It is estimated
that there are about 400 striking
miners here, whicb will be a suoffiient
number to operate the Le Roi to its
fullest capacity.

Viotoria, Jan. 23.���The ship's boat

as Minister Wu is charged with the

defraying the expenses of tbe Chinese
legation in Washington, in Lima and
in Madrid, it is believed this money
will be applied to such purposes.
The details of a bill restricting
anarchy and anarchists was practically determined upon today by tbe
special committee of members of the
house judiciary committee appointed
to consider this subject. The language of some of the provisions Is yet to

INSOLVENCY LBUISLATION.
Insolvency legislation, which ha*
heen much discussed in eastern Canada during recent years, und which
is likely to come before tho Houae of
Commons at the next session, if
carried through on the lines proposed
by some, will make important changes
< in business methods. Chief among
theV' jhanges will be making it more
ilitlicult to obtain credit much beyond
tbe amount for which ample security
can be provided. The war is made
against preferences to favored creditors, out of which losses frequently
occur to unsecured creditors. The question is broad and involves from one
eziieme, the allowing of n.i prefer
encs at all, up to thc law now in
vogue in must of the provinces, whicb
allows all preferences, except those in
which fraud can be proven.
II preferences were done away with
excepting those given upon a bnsinesB
being established or subsequently
given with the consent of all the cred.
iters, which would practically mean
never afterward, the amount of credit
which a man in business could get
would be much less than at present:
As things go now there may be
several creditors who each continue
supplying goods in the expectation
that,when he thinks it necessary to his
safety,he can force a chattel mortgage
wheo the others would be the losers.
Were there not this uhance open the
credit would not be extended and the
man in business would either have to
curtail bis purchasing or suspend.
Tbe curtailing by this means of
the ability to procure credit might
work hardship in some instances, but
at most cases it would re'luce the
number in business, prices would be
maintained and payments enforced,
three things that would assist muoh
in making the retail business particularly, and in many instances the
wholesale business also, more profitable. According to the reports of the
commercial agencies the number of
failures in tho retail lines of business
are astouishmgly large, much more so
than there seems any necessity for,
and mostly caused by purchasing too
largely and giving too much credit.
It is also proposed that the new
Insolvency Act, ii passed, would pio-
vide for giving relief to insolvent
debtors. As the laws of all the provinces now stand the person who
assigns is never able to engage In
business on his own account again so
long as even one creditor refuses to
give him a full discharge. Eveu this
heavy penalty of failure has been insufficient to reduce the number of
failures and to inculcate approved
methodB considered necessary to buo-
cees. A lull discharge, in many
instances, which the man who may
have been unsuccessful an opportunity of again facing the world in
bis own name with the hope aud expectation that the experience he has
gained and the knowledge of his
shortcomings may enable him to make
his life a fair success and to till an
honored place in the world.
volumes. The volumes are thus used
over and over and have a much wider
range of usefulness than if they
were on the shelves of the library of
an individual, There can, therefore,
be no question as to tbe great benefit
which the institution confers upon
Nelson, and it should receive the
hearty support of every individual
who bas the well being of Nelson
in view.
The library association is composed
of ladies who founded the library and
who havo kept its doors open for the
past four years The city donates J500
a year towards its support and it is
money well spent. The visitors who
use it the most contribute the least
towards its support. It is necessary
that its resources be supplemented by
additional funds. As we have nu local
Carnegiea the supplemental support
needed must come from tbe community. It would never do to have the
only public library of any consequence in the inturior of British
Columbia closed through a lack uf
public spirit on the part of the
people.
The ladles Intend to soon give a
conversazione and dance, witn refreshments,nt the Phair for the benefit
of the library. This should be well
patronized.
Beside tbis those who can afford to
contribute should do so at onoe and
assist a most Worthy Institution out
of the financial difficulties wbich en
compass it.
In this library there is an opportun
ity for some local wealthy man to
confer a benefit on his fellow citizens
and at the same time perpetuate his
name for all time to come by making
an endowment of a sum sufficient to
plaoe it on a good footing. In this
event the library could take the name
of the donor. What better monument
could an individual leave than a pub
lie library. It would show to better
advantage that he had virtues, that
he was public spirited, and that he
loved his fellows, than a large
and costly musolenm of the finest
marble.
THE l'UHl.IU LIBRARY.
The Nelson publio library is short
of funds and its needs are so great
thai the lady manager may he compelled to close its doors unless the
public comes to its rescue with liberal
aid. The library is one of Nelson's
most useful and beneficent institutions. It is free to tho public during
thc day and evening, and while its
doors are open there is no lack of
visitors, who have access to the books
and papers. All who call are made
welcome and many strangers within
our gates, as well as residents, spend
their spare hours profitably among its
books. It has a number of members
who pay $2 a year for the privilege of
borrowing books. From its well
stocked shelves books arc taken into
families and the father, the mother
and the children read them. Students
examine the reference books and even
professional men occasionally look
up   useful    data   lrom     among    the I

The first carload of blistered copper
from the Granby smelter at Miner
passed through the city yesterday. It
was consigned to Newark, New Jersey, where the gold and silver will be
extracted and the copper turned into
electrolytic copper. Other shipments
will be made from the Granby converter. The next step aiter the converter will be a local copper refinery
and then there will be no necessity
for sending the blistered copper away
to be refined. The sooner this country
depends eutirely on itself for the accomplishing ot all tbe metallurgical
processes the better. Eaoh process
saves freight and besides this the
money spent in refining will remain
at home instead of being expended
abroad to enrich other communities
and to give foreign workers empluy-
i.Hinl. With a copper refinery and a
lead rem fiery, in addition to the reduction works already in operation, the
mining and the reduction industries
of the province would be entirely free
funii foreign influences and would
prosper to a much greater extent than
if dependent. The future policy
should bo self reliance and this is thc
one under which the highest degree
nf prosperity can be attained.
Six an.l !)-13th cents a day is a
pretty small sum with which to keep
boiy and soul together and yet this is
the record of the average cost of keep
ing prisoners in an Ontario jail. According to a St. Thomas, Ont , newspaper the jail at Elgin does not offer
many inducements to those who try
its hospitality to come again. In the
quarterly report, issued by thc governor of the jail, it is stated that during
tho quarter ending December 31st
there were SO municipal and nine provincial prisoners in confinement and
seven ot these were Insane. Tho collective stay of all the prisoners during
the three months was 73 days. The
total cost ot the focd given to thc
prisoneis during the three months was
J49.II0, being an average of 6 9.13th
cents woith of food a day for each

it is entitled to the distinction claimed for lt.   The prisoners did not need |

tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I woe a slave, attained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you had overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial acted like a

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been afflcted with spasmodic asthma for thf�� past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmaleno.
My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are alllioted with this distressing disease.

LE BOI NO. 2.
The Revelatione  Made by the Balanoe
Sheet of the Co.
The be lance-sheet of the Le Roi No.
���s from June 1st, 1900, to September
last'has now been issued, and accompanying it is a somewhat intricate
report by the auditors, says the London B. C. Review of Jan. 4th. This
report bears out tbe state Bents we
made in our issue of June 15th when
Wl, wrote: "The announcement of a
s percent, dividend by tho Le Roi
No. 2 was somewhat of a surprise to
the market and was not unnaturally
regarded as a piece of financial
diplomacy in view of tne approaching
proceedings in regard to the liquidation of the B.A.C. It is quite obvious
lrom the returns issued by tho company that unless the ore values in
this mine are very substantially
higher than from thc Le Roi the mine
lias not earned sufficient profits to pay
��30.000." as it now transpires that the
totnl profit earnod up to September
30th Inst only amounted to ��27.275.
There is one point that needs explanation viz., the payment of ��30,000 as
dividend, although 12,000 shares
owned by the B.A.C. were only partly
paid up. The directois, it appears,
reoeived ��1,500, being 5 per cent, ol
the profits of the company���which had
not heen earned. It is stated that
the Le Roi company have claimed
$6,000 against Le Roi No. 2 for development work done, which claim is not
admitted by the directors. There
appears to bo some slight discrepancy
here, as Mr. Frecheville states that
work costing f20,000 has been done by
the Le Roi in opening up the JoBie
and No. 1 claims.a piece of generosity
on the part of the parent oompany for
which they only desire to charge Le
Hoi No. 2 less than one-third of the
cost. The uncertainty in jegard to
the smelter charges on Le Roi No. 2
ores shows that those in charge of the
smelter weie either incompetent or
unbusinesslike. They commenced by
charging f5 a ton for freight and
treatment, afterwards raising it to f6
and later making a further addition
of $1.08 per too, which the present
directors consider to be 81.88 too
much. The company appears to have
managed to liquidate its Indebtedness
to the Bank of Montreal, but the
position   of   affairs   as shown in   the
balance-sheet shuwB that some time
must elapse before another dividend
can be distributed.

This game was very much closer
than the final score would indicate as
at the end of the eighth end the score
was 6 to 7 and at the end of tbe tenth
7 to 10, but in the last two end3 Fox
made a three and a four which made
up his big majority. Good play
marked the whole event which was
watched with interest by a large
group of the members. Several scratch

VELVET TO RECONSTRUCT.
It
for
Found ��25,000 Required
Further Development.
A circular has been issued by the
directors of the Velvet mine, in which
a scheme for reconstruction is placed
before thc shareholders with the object of raising about ��2.1,000 for
further working capital. The proposal
is io assess the shares for 2s (id each,
which will be called up by instalments extending probably over one
year or more. Tbis mine, and, in
fact, all tho properties on Sophie
mountain, have been greatly handi-
capped by the lethargy of the government in providing transportation facilities, which has made the lost uf
development abnormally high, and
tho getting in of suitable machinery, a
most arduous and costly undertaking.
The experience at this mine bas been
the same as at those situated on Red
Mountain���that down to the 400 feet
level the ore bodies are broken and
tanlty, but below that they become
regular. Although Mr. Sorensen. the
manager, reports lhat he has taken
out ore ready for shipment running as
high as 830 a ton, the sale of which
would provide money for development, it will be a short-sighted
policy not to provide the aecessaiy
working capital to carry on operations
on a large scale by which great
economies can be effected. As it is
generally acknowledged by all those
acquainted with the property that the
ore bodies already exposed are of good
grade, and that the property gives
every indication of becoming a valu
able mine, the shareholders will n<
doubt find the requisite capital.
GRAND MUSICAL FESTVAL.
The oratorio Stabat Mater, by
Rosatni, which has been under rehearsal for production on Thursday noxt
in the grand musical festival at the
Opera house, promises to be oanably
and efficiently rendered by all taking
part. The chorus has been selected
from the ehnrch choirs of the oity,
and individual singers, and has no
connection whatever with any
society. The surplus, if any, will be
devoted to the funds of tbe Presbyterian church choir who has assumed the
responsiblity of tbe whole festival.
It is hoped that the lovers of this class
of music will attend in large and appreciative numbers. Tbe "Hallelujah
Chorus" from the "Messiah" and
Mrs. Parry's solo, "Ave Maria" by
Gounod, are gems in themselves, not
to mention the instrumental pieces to
be rendered by the orchestra under
llerr .Stelnei. The plan opens at McDonald's confeotionery store on Monday next.

named Myers who has a nine months'
term to servo for petty larceny.
The police were active yesterday lli
putting a stop to the dangerous practice of coasting on the sidewalks with
hand sleds in which many of the
children of the city indulge. The
dangers of this practice on many of
the hills could hardly be overestimated and unless it is stopped serious accidents aro bound to occur.
The Nelson and Port Sheppard train
was over three hours behind time last
evening. The delay was caused by the

and the train reached Nelson over
three hours behind schedule time.

It Is some years since any damage

ber wolves hut on Saturday last a
rancher living two miles below Bur
ton on Arrow lake, bad a mule killed
and partly eaten by tbem. The am
mal had been left out in a pasture
field in which there wns a shed. That
night the rancher beard coy_otes making a great row in tbe neighborhood
to which he paid no attention. In the
miming the remains of the mule
were found and from thc tracks and
other sigrs it was seen that it had
been killed by three timber wolves
which after worrying him all louncl
thc pasture had finally cornered bim
in an angle of the fence and killed
him. The coyotes had waited till the
wolves got througn before taking
their share, ami then helped devour
Ing tbe carcass. The wholo affair
took place within one hundred yards
of the rancher's cabin, showing how
bold the animals were.

Chinese Emperor Receives Ministers in
the Forbidden City.
Pekin, Jan. 23.���The ministers of
the powers here bave attained the
goal which has been their aim since
intercourse between China and the
powers began. Thfiy have been received as representatives of sovereigns,
equal in rank to the Chinese emperor.
The audiences yesterday between
the emperor and the raiuisters were
held in the innermost large hall of
the Forbidden City. The emperor sat
upon a dais behind a table. Pour
princes were at the back of his chair
and a dozen officials at each side. The
dowager empress was cancealed by a
screen, according to the stories of attendants, ��nd remained invisible The
audience chamber was furnished
ornately, in oontrast to Ihe dingy
rooms which served for these audiences under the old regime. The secretaries translated the addresses of the
ministers, copies of which were
handed to the emperor. The replies
to these addresses were delivered by
Prince Cbing. The emperor was silent
throughout the audience and remained stolid and impassive. Formerly the
erepcror replied to the minBters in
Manchuria and the Prince interpreted
what he said. Today the emperor appeared as an automaton and secretaries of the foreign ministers who
were present report that he looked
weaker.
The ministers of the foreign powers
enterd the Forbidden City at the main
gate, leaving their military escorts
outside. At the second gate they
entered yellow chairs, like those furnished for the princes and secretaries.
They walked through the inner courts
of the Forbidden circle and their
cortege retired from the city by the
east gate.
Parmer Mauitobans Romcmber   Crime
of Whicb Gordon is Accused.
The dispatch in The Miner of yesterday regarding the arrest in Halifax, of Walter Gordon, or a man supposed to be he, was read with interest
by many ex-Mnnitobans who are
familiar with the district in which
the murder ot two brothers, of whieh
Gordon is accused, was committed.
One of these is F. A. Tamblyn, who
knew the murdered men and the supposed murderer.
Thc murder was a mystery for weeks
and Gordon stayed in the vioinity for
some time after it was committed. He
had worked for the men he is accused
of murdering and later had bought
their farm, making a small payment
on it. He lived on the same farm
after the purchase. The men disappeared and when inquires were made
Gordon said they had gone to Brandon. Not returning, inquiries were
made in Brandon and when they
could not be found there Gordon
quietly disappeared and this lead to
suspicion being attached to bim.
Search was then made for the bodies
and after quite a long search they
were found in a well, fresh earth having been thrown over them, and this
had lead to the discovery. It was then
remembered|that some of the neighbors had at one time seen ono man
chasing another near the houso, so
level is the country and so clear the
atmosphere tbat objects can be distinguished at a great distance, and
this Gordon accounted for by saying
they were killing a dog. I was afterwards supposed that one of the
brothers had been killed for a few
dajs, and that Gordon, fearing that
the other brothel knew abont what
had happened, had enticed him part
of the way to the village of Whitewater and killed him on the way,
throwing bis body also into the well.
Gordon had reached a safe distance
before these facts had been learned
and the rewara offered was not sufficient to induce a vigorous prosecution
of the search for him. The object
assigned for the murder, if Gordon
be the culprit, was that he wished to
avoid making further payment on his
farm.
MILITIA ESTIMATES.
Ranges   Will   Recieve   Special
Attention This Season.
Ottawa, Jan. 23.���It is understood,
says the Ottawa Citizen, that the estimates of thejMilitia department, now
in course of preparation, will contain
a very large and substantial appropriation for the construction of much
neeled rifle ranges in different parts
of tho country. Pressure has been
brought to bear upon the government
to make a liberal grant towards this
purpose, and lt is said that about
8200,000 may be voted. It is reoog-
nized that after all, the efficiency of
a soldier is very largely proportionate
to his ability to shoot and that latent
talent can only be brought out by
thorough and systematic rifle practice. Suoh is impossible unless opportunity for such work is afforded by
the inauguration of ranges, not alone
in the principal centres, but all over
the country. In thiB connection a suggestion has been made tbat. a board of
officers should be commissioned by
the government to go over the country
and select Buitnble sites. Three or
tour could do the work. They should
be practical shots and able to attend
to every detail of procuring accommodation for Canadian riflemen. A lot
of time and bother in obtaining
proper locations could thus be saved.
If the government sees fit to make
liberal allowances towards fostering
title shooting it will, it is agreed, be
performing a meritorious work.
PREPARING FOR NEXT CROP.
Winnipeg, Jan. 23.���Wiliam Mackenzie interviewed here, Btated that
the Canadian Northern had under contract ten locomotives to be delivered
by Juno 1st, and the number might be
increased to 2.r>. Contracts have been
made for the building of 1,000 cars to
lie ready for tho next grain crop.

INDUSTRIAL COMMISSION.
Final Report Making Several Recommendations in Printers' Hands.
Washington, Jan. 28.���The Industrial commission after years sp-.mt in
investigating the industrial condition
of the country, witb the view of making   recommendations   calculated     to
assist in the solution of the problems
of the times, has completed und sent
to the printer its final report It. It is
expected that this report will be presented to congress within the next
few days. The final document will be
a volume of about 1,0(10 pages and
will be a review of the evidence contained in tlie previously published 18
volumes. In this last volume the
various qnestionB which have been
considered in the course of the inquiry are dhcussed under separate
headings and recommendations aie
made. On the subject of trusts the
commission followed closely the lines
of the recummendations laid down by
the president in his annual message.
Supervision hy the national government is recommended. Tho most radical specific step suggested is that
direction by the reports is that the
books of all corporations be subject at
all times to inspection as are the
books of national banks. This, it is
claimed, would go far toward protecting the public against impositions in
upon I the way of capitalization and other
I devices.     The  commission  disousses

BOSTON'S BARBER REGULATIONS
Board of Health   Orders   Sterilization
of All That Barbers Use on
Customers.
A special despatch from Boston,
May 5, 1900, to the N. Y. Sun gives
as new regulations of the Boston
Board of Health as to barber shops:
"Mugs, shaving brushes and razors
shall be steralized after each separate
use thereof A scperate, clean towel
shall be used for each person.
Material to stop the flow of blood
shall be used only in powdered form,
