make it evident that tlio prohiuitory

United States  Government  Retaliates
iu Tariff.
Washington, April 2.���While no
policy has been defined as to tbe
cuurbo this government will pursue in
meeting the new exclusion of the
Germans,all the measures that appear
to be practicable probably will be
adopted. The matter so far is only in
the preliminary stage, but today it
progressed so lar that facts and
figures bearing on tho trade and the
artices of import from Germany whieh
may be available for imposition of
sim iiar restrictions are now reaoy for
submission to the president and his
The department ot agriculture has
been gathering these facts and a list
ot artices found to bo treated with
borax or other preservatives against
which has been laid the charge that
they arc injurious has been completed
and the question of policy will be
given serious consideration very shortly. The artcles that first will be considered along this line are sausages,
wines, beers and delicatessen. A
large per cent, cf these among other
things bave been found to contain
preservatives such as might cause
tbem to be barred on tbe same theory
as that adopted by the Genians.
The United States has been excluding for some time articles containing
salicyllic acid Bnd another acid,
clearly proved to bo injurious,but the
enforcement of those conclusions undoubtedly will be made even more
rigorous. The German view of tbe
deleteriousness of borax will be accepted and used for meeting their exclusions and other regulations in all
probability will be adopted ban lag
stuffs treated with other presrevatives.
Whatever restrictions on articles
are decided upon, it ia likely that
Germany will not be specifically
refened to, though the articles selected will be such as affect mostly tie
imports from Germany.

chief justice of Canada, will retire

Chicago, April 2.���All question
about the ability of tlm management
of the athletic games to have Sir
Thomas Lipton's Shamrock III. in
Lake Michigan waters t;i compete in
an international yacht race off the
water front of the city was settled in
an interview between the Olympian
games officials yesterday and Captain
D. Sullivan, thu Chicago representative of tho Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Transportation Co.
The latter said: It will be an easy
matter to bring a yacht of the size of
Shamrock III fiom deep water in tbo
St. Lawrence to the lake trout. This
could be accomplished in two ways.
As the draught wator in the St.
Lawrence and Welland canals is
limited to 14 foet it would only be
necessary to use pontoons for the
purpose of lifting the yacht to conform
to that draught of water and to put
her in dock at Ouobec and hox her
keel, decreasing her displacement
sufficiently to reduce her to the required diangbt. There are two or
three companies at St.Lawrence points
which have successfully accomplished
this with other vessels in a number of
cases. There would be no risk to the
yacht and the expense would be
moderate. This has been done so
often that che proposition is a simple
one. It was done successfully when
thc draught was only nine feet in
the lower St. Lawrence and there is
absolutely no question about the feasibility of it now. Sir ThomaB said lie
would send the Shamiock III. to
ChieBgo if she could be taken to Lake

New York, April 2.���Believing that

bound lor four days and five nights
on the prairies of North Dakota in the
worst blizzard the northwest has seen

or two frugal lacals a day and with
such a small amount of fuel that tho
ladies had to wrap themselves in
blankets and the men had to wear
their overcoats day and night to keep
from iieezing.
Late Thursday nl'ornoon, tho train
crawled out of Williston In the hope
of being able to roach Minot, some 11
miles east befoie night. About midway is a place called Kay,where there
is only a siding, a water tank and a
coal shed. Theie the train was
stalled. The engineer started tbe
engine bacn to Williston for aid taking the conductor along hut the
engine got stuck in a drift in a cut
near town and had to bo abandoned.
Tbis left the train of eight coaclics
and about 250 passengers alone on the
siding with all communication cut
There was an incipient riot on the
first day. The second class passougers
insisted that they must havo as much
or more food than others and as they
were in lniger numbers and had more
ravenous appetites, it was difficult to
confine them to their quota. Thc first
class passengers insisted that tbe
women and children should he fed
and taken care of first, and after some
argument tho seoond class passengers
wero prevailed upon to subside.
On Monday evening, Prof. Colgrove,
of the University of Washington, who
had been dospondent, cut his throat
with a razor There was a physician
on the train, but he had no instruments and it became absolutely necessary to get communication with one of
tho neighboring towns. The passengers desperately broke open everything
in the train oheit. In the conductor's
box they found a telegiuph instrument. A young electrician faced the
blizzard,"tapped one of thc wires and
attached tne instrumnt, notifying the
operators at both Minot and Williston
of what bad occurred.
A snowplow was started from each
place in front of an engine.bearing a
surgeon. Tbe ono from Mino*, after
a hard night's work, reached tho
siding eaily the following morning
and the wounded man was removed
on the first train to St. Paul where
he was cared for at the city hospital.
The almost famished passengers who
bad suffered from the cold and exposure were given food and warm
bertns in the first train pushed
througn the diifts. The rotary plow
made one trip through tbo drilt
between Kay aud Minot, but the snow
piled in so rapidly that it was necessary lor the rotary to pass through
again and then preeeed the passenger
through the cuts.
Prof. Colgrove's jugulai vein is
partially severed. It is not believed
he can recover. lie had been ill and
had decided to spend a month with
friends and relations at Hamilton,

semi-official newspaper, has recently
published several indignant ar'icles
directed to tho authorities of lhe llritish island of Trinidad on account

All sorts of obstacles are being
placed iu the nay of the^contruction of
the V. V. and U!. railway in its attempt to get through the Boundary
country. Tbe company has built its
tracks up tu the lines of a eeitain
rannh and aro prevented from gbing
further by an armed baud of deputy
���hnriffs. Tbis does not seem to be
the proper spirit to show on tho part
of the people of tho Boundary
oountry. For several years the residents of tbat section, and particularly
of Orand Forks, have been anxious
to secure a competing line so that they
might have the benefit-, which it
mould bring. Twice attempt to socure
a charter for the road was defeated in
parliament, although the Boundary
peoplo sent delegatus to tho seat of
government to assist in securing the
charter, who made personal appoals
to the government to grant their
prnyoi-b. The attempts were balked,
and mainly through tliejnlluene-o oi
the Canadian Pacific railway, wnich
last year received 8100,000 for the
transportation of ore and supplies
f-tm one Bounnar.v company. Now
that the V. V. and El, is built into the
Kouudary and is carrjing on the extension of tbe enterprise witiiout
either a subsidy of money or land it is
opposed by some who will be most
benefited by its completion nnd by the
advent of a competing lin;.
Mr. Hill ha* evidently made an unwise move. Had be asked for a subsidy fiom both the province and the
Dominion and half of each of the
townsites which be passed through he
would not have been opposed ; on the
contrary, he would have had tbo path
of his builders smoothed, instead of
obstructed, and he would have been
welcomed ty public ovations and
brats bands.
It wonld appear from the obstructive tactics that are being used that
all tbe talk and fuss which tbe people
of the Kettle river valley made to the
effect tbat tbey wero apparently anxious to secure, the benefits of railway
eompetitiou, were mere pretenses and
tbat they are satisfied to go on forever
paying the present exorbitant transportation rates to the C.V.ll. Tbey do
not want cheaper rates ior the haulage
of their coke, ere and supplies, and
apparently, judging from tbeir actions.
are anxious to be left with only one
railway. If this is what tbey want no
effort should be made to help them.
We believe, lioitever if Mr. Hill
would pull up bis survey stakes, refuse to go on with his railway and
leave tbem to present conditions, they
would in a few days be sending delegations to St. Paul to interview him
and petition him to go on with his
enterprise and at the same time would
promise that no more obstructive
tactics would be resorted to. There
are many, however, who believe that
the C. P.K. is at the bottom of tbe
obstruction and that this compauy is
behind tbe Hot Air line, which is
pntially responsible for tbe delay
wbich is not being experienced in tbe
forward operations of tbe V.V. and

The circular of lames Lewis and
Soob, of Liverpool, of March 17, has
the following to say of thu copper
situation : The market for copper has
not been very active during the past
fortnight English consiliums continue to absorb copper very freely,
taking delivery of purchases previously made, nnd American copper hns
beeu forwarded from here to Oermany,
direct supplies not being sufficient for
immediate requirements. American
eleotrolytic copper has been exchanged for ordinary standard at 5s
Od. per ton premium, chief part of tbe
stock now uoneisting of this quality.
From ��53 lis. on the 3rd inst. Standard
copper rose to ��r>5 on the 10th, but
has gradually receded until ��3.1 10s.
for caBn and ��53 5s. Od. for three
month's prompt has been accepted
today. The Amalgamated Copper
company's shares fell to $03 on reports
that the dividend shortly due would
be passed. In addition to the fall in
tbe value of copper, this oompany
suffers considerably from the fall in
the value of silver, and, probnbly,
also from a decreased percentage uf
copper in the oro raised from thc
lower working of their mines. A
higher price than that at present ruling for copper would therefore aopear
to be a necessity to this company.
It will be depressing Dews for those
who have tbeir wea'th locaed up in
what aro supposed to be burglar proof
safes to realize that the cracksmen
can break them open in a lew
minutes. The best tempered steal
safe, no mntter hov thick, is not
proof aganist a new chemical compound, called thermite, which up-to-
date cracksmen have learned to use.
Wnen this compound ia mixed with
magnesium powder it will destroy the
hardness of the metal and 10b it of
its tepmer, euabling a burglar with
ordinary tools to cnt into it as though
it were lead. The best means for foiling burglars to be found, so the experts say, is tne electrical signal system, which when disarranged will
sound an alarm. It seems curious that
the cracskmen is able to open any lock
or get into any safe so far invented,
provided he has the opportunity for a
short period of doing so. The use of
the chemical thermite is a case in
point. Tbis is due to the fact that
human ingenuity in any direction has
a limit. The locksmith and the safe
maker working in one direction
although thev are very ingenious are
met by the ingenuity of tbe burglar
and the thief. If the ingenuity of the
burglar in picking locks is equal to
that of the locksmith who made it he
ean opoo it. This is the real reason
why no lock is made but what can be
picked or no safe so strong that it
cannot be broken into.

(which it does not) there might be
something in Dr. Montizamher's ideas
as to making the unvaccinated sufferer
from smallpox ameuahle- to a flue or
imprisonment or both. Unfortunately, the medical fraternity is forever chasing the eftcct, disease, in
place of the real cause, tilth. It
would be a great deal tnorH to tbe
point if the worthy doctor and those
wbo are inclined to endorse his proposed wild drastic measures for tho
elimination of the disease, if they
were to make it a crime punishable
as above for anyone not keeping his
body and surroundings scrupulously
clean. Only very recently has it been
admitted that public spitting is'condu-
oive to the spread of consumption
and quite a number of cities have
made it a punishable offence. What
shall we say then of the filthy surroundings in which too many live and
move and have their being to the risk
of contaminating the whole? If there
were more agitation over the true
prevention there would be 1'iss responsible ciiatter over the cute.

to Join Coast
Suggestion Made to Form a
Teacher's Glose Corporation,
Tlioic was tho same excellent at-
tondanco ut the DJeetlotf of the
Teachers' asooiation vestorday  as on
the previous day and keen interest
Was manifested in eacli nf the subjects discussed. The llrst paper was
ono by K. .1. Clark, M A,, of Nelson,
on school niHnagenient. In this he
dealt generally witli suggestions as to
discipline and the relation of the
pupil to the teuoher, The pupils
should be encouraged to think for
themsolvus. Thero should be no haste
and rules should be as low as possible,and these he would coiiden-e into.
tell the truth, and obey at once. The
subject matter of the paper was dis-
oussd by Messrs. Clement, Dove, McTavish and Clark.
S. li. Clement, of New Denver, then
read a paper which elicited a rather
brisk discussion and in it ho made a
dip into tlie future with a prediction
lhat startled tho more conservative
The duties of tho teacher was bis
subject and in developing his view of
this ho hold that while ideals of
i Inn actor building wero to be kept in
sight yet the parents demanded lhat.
tho suhool education should be such
as makes tho pupils successful in life
and to be able to grapple with tbe
problems of tho stnte. The trend
of things was changing in the
political world arm u new condition
of things s arising for which tbe
people should be prepared. Those
classes who previously had little
to say in affairs of government were
realising their power aud tliat power
was increasing. These olai-ses would
probably bo in command at some
time and tlio duty of the teacher was
to keep this iu view so tliat when
these great changes come, which some
oonsldor they will, they may bo
brought about au quietly 88 possible.
As to the duties of tho teachers to
each other he would advise tliem to
organise to protect their own interests
ou tlie lines of the societies in the
legal and medical professions. This
could deal with the matter of salaries,
hours, legislation and anything else
ull'eotiug tho teachers. Ho advocted the
adoption of a national system of education as one that would be more economical, and the pensioning of teachers with the view to making the profession oftener the life-long profession
of those who engage in it.
The general trend of tho discussion
Was opposed to the principles advocated by Mr. Clement and was participated in by Messrs. Claik, Wilson,
Tait, Itwin and Sullivau. Mr Tait
lavoreU the suggestion of a teachers'
In the afternoon there was a sharp
discussion as to what action should be
taken ou the proposal of the provincial association. That body had in a
letter sent to the executive proposed
that all the teachers of the province
should hold a joint session, and on
Tuesday morning a telegram was received by ^tne secretary lrom the
secretarv of the association uow in
session in Viotoria asking this association to name the olliceis for the
coming year and appoint a place of
Inspector Wilson moved, seconded
by K. J. Clark, tbat, Whereas it has
been hitherto impossible on account
of expense of travel for the teacheis of
the interior to attend tho meetings of
the Provincial Teachers' Institute
until this time always held at tbe
cowt. and
Whereas it is deemed highly neces
sary in the educational interests of
the interior that the meetings of said
institute be held in alternate years at
the  coast and in the interior, and
Whereas, for the reasons just mentioned the said institute now in session in Victoria.has by resolution requested this institute to elect officers
for its next meeting ut some point
in the interior to be selected by this
Therefore, be it resolved. That this

for the next meeting of the Provincial
Teachers' Institute to be held in the
This motion was defeated after
debute by a vote of 24 to 17. with two
spoiled ballots, and a resolution was
adopted instructing the secretary to
notify the institute to that effect.
Wilbert Elley, of Rossland. thon
read a paper on Should Music be
Taught in the Schools. He contended
that It should, as it was a noble ail
and thould be cultivated,   that it  had
a psychological value, on account of
Its bvgonic value as a breathing exercise, for the pit) mure and entertainment it gives, that both boys and girls
may have equal opportunity, that it
cultivates tlio aesthetic und emotional,
and that its general tendonoy is
toward good and morality.
A. ,1. Dove. M. A., of Kaslo. gave
the paper which was the most admired
of tbe convention, on Ideal Discipline. The object ol discipline should
be, he said, to enable tho child to be
self directing, to know that it must
suffer tbo icsiiHk of its own acts. It
must be shown how to build up its
own it.cals and to fcrm its own standards of history aud literature,
from Incidents tliat happen In the
locality, and in art from the ornamentation of thu school room aud tbe
grounds. lt was not the business of
the luacher to sit In judgment on tho
acts of the child but to teach it to
judge its own Hots. The paper was
listened to with great intorest and at
the eouelusion by resolution it was
decidud to have it printed and distributed to the members of the association.

Tho annua! meeting uf the True
l"lue mine took place at Kaslo, on
Friday, The old board of directors
waB re-cleoted, and the reports received show the mine to be in a
promising condition. Au adjournment
wus taken for several weeks, and at
thc next session figures as to the production and valuo of the ore will be
presented. During the winter months
considerable ore was minod and
shipped to the Uull smelter at Nelson. The breaking up of the rawhide
trails put an eud to sloping, and the
crew is new employed ou development. A tunnel is being run to tap
the load at greater depth. If the
development proves satisfactory it is
the intention of the company to go
seriously into tho question of constuct-
ing an aeiial tramway between the
mine and Kootenay lako, a distance
of some three and a half or four miles.
The cost ot this enterprise would, of
oourse, be considerable butprrbably
not exceed that of making a wagon
road to thc property, while the cost ot
transporting ore to the lako aftor the
woik is completed would be substantially less by tramway.
