Brotherhood of Trackmen Iioftisod Insurance Compnny Privileges.
Ottawa, March 20.-The application
of the Brotherhood of Railway Trackmen of Amorica, of which John T.
Wilson, of St Louis,Mo.,is president,
for permission to carry on insurance
business in Canada for tho benefit of
its members, has been refused by tho
Dominion government. The principal
reasons are that the department is not
satisfied that the calling of the tracic
men is sufficiently dangerous to pre
vent trackmen from obtaining insur
ance at reasonable rates from ordinary
companiea; that the rates are too low ;
that special assessments are levied and
that insurance money has been used
to pay expenses of strike.

Capetown, March 20.���Cecil Rhodes!
died peacefully at 5.57 p.m. Ho slept
dming the afternoon, but his breathing became more difficult and his
srength perceptibly diminished until
he passed away. He was conscious
until 5.55 p. m. when he muttered a
few words and sank quickly. The
immediate cause of hia death was two
successive attacks of heart failure.
At his bedside were Dr. Jameson,
Dr. J. W. Smart, tne commissioner of
public works; Col.-Elmhurst Rhodes,
director of signalling of the South
African field force; Mr. Walton, of
Port Elizabeth, member ol the assembly. Mr. Rhodos mst words were tbe
names of his brother and some of the
others present, whieh were meant to
be good byes. The only person who
attended him during his illness and
who was not present at his deathbed
was Dr. Stevenson. All his other
friends and personal servants were
admitted at the last.
The body will be taken to Groote
Sohuur, his residence near Capetown,
in a special train tomorrow. There it
will probably lie iu state for a day or
two, and the publio will be admitted
to view it. It has not yet been determined where Mr. Rhodes will be
buried. lt was his wish that he
should be buried at Matoppo hills,
Rhudesia. Certain cl' his friends
will proceed to Matoppo hills to determine whether it is practicable to
carry out this wish. The features of
the dead man are placid and a death
mask of them   will be taken.
The government has decided to give
Cecial Rhodes a publio funeral. His
remains will be brought here from
Uroote Scbuur for tho burial service
wbich will bo hold in the Cathedral.
The body will then be taken back to
Oroote Scbuur and will eventually be
buried at Matoppo hills.
Since Mr. Rhodes took to his bed
three weeks ago, his friends had been
most anxious that he should recover
sufficiently to be taken back to
The cottage where he died wns a
simplo seaside cabin, small and close
to the railway. It was ill 111tort to he
a sick chamber, although the utmost
waa done to improve the ventilation
and make it more comiortable. Dr.
Stovenion Blept by his patient every
night that he might be iu readiness to
administer cxygen, whieh practically
kept Mr. Rhodes alive. Last Sunday
he lost all interest in everything and
Bince then he doled tlio hours away.
His rally from tho crisis of Tuesday
left but tho faintest hopes for his ultimate recovery. They were entirely
abandoned with the renewed attaok
at noon today.
The news of his death spread
through Capetown between 7 and B
o'clock tins evening and caused profound grief. All places of amusement
were immediately closed. An open air
concort was stopped and thc audience
uncovered while thc band played the
Dead March. The people then suddenly  dispersed.
London, March 27.���The estimates
of the careei of Cecil Rhodes and the
effect of tbat career ou the history of
the Uritish empire are oolorod largely
by tha political views of the papers
making tbem. But the opinion is
unanimous in the press here that in
spite of the defects and tho limitations
of bis forceful oharacter, few men
have more profoundly impressed tho
imaginaton of their contemporarieB.or
played a larger part in the world's
affairs   than   Cecil   Rhodes and   tbe

With the expressions of admiration
for his great services are mingled

Tne Standard says: Theie was a
certain largeness and magnanimity
even in bis failings. He remains a
impressive and inspiring ligure and
the real lover of his country, who
sacrificed much to make England
great and powerful.
Tho Daily Mail describes him as
the successor ol Lord Clive and Warren Hastings and says: The violence
with which he was hated abroad is
tbe measure of his servico to England.
Tho Daily Chronicle says: There
was nothing in tlie career of Cecil
Rhodes to support the charge that he
was a vulgar money grabber. There
was i othing small about bim, even his
olunders were colossal.
The Daily News which bitterly
attacks Mr. Rhodes on account of the
Jameson raid, declaring tbat not even
Randolph Churcbiil shattered a more
brilliant career by a more conspicuous
act oi folly, also defends him from
the charge of money grabbing.
The Daily Telegraph says: If
Cecil Rhodes was guilty of a blunder
in 1895, he paid as dearly for it as
his most bitter foe could wish. Now,
lhat he has passed beyond the reach
of malignity, of censure, only the
magnificent services rendered tho empire bo loved will be remembered.
The Times says in an editorial:
With all his undeniable faults, and
the errors which marred his noble
work, Cecil Rhodes stands an heroic
figure around which the traditions of
Imperial history will cling.
Tho newspapers all devoto much
spaco to sketches of the career of Mr.
Rhodes, to reminiseenses of the man
aud tho expressions cf foreign opinion
concerning bim. Considerable curiosity is evinced as to the probable
disposal of hi? property and interests.
The general notion ia that the bulk of
his property will bo bequeathed, not
to an individual, but to public interests in South Africa, and that Dr.
Jameson will be designated to succeed, so far as any one can succeed,
to tbe charge of his Rbodcsian
interesta. It is understood that Rhodes
wished to be burioJ at Matapopo hills
bucausu this was the scene of his
histoiie conference with tho Matabclu
A dispatch from Capetown published
tbis morning in the Dally Express
says tbat Dr. Jamuion is authority for
the statement that Cecil Rhodes left
Oroote Scbuur, his residence near
Capetown, to tbo people of that city,
and large sums of money to cbnrilies.
New York, March 2(1.���Earl (Jrey,
before sailing for England gave the
Associated Press an interview concerning Cecil Rhodes.     He Bald :
"Cecil Rhodes is the only example
perhaps in our generation of those
idealists who in the days of Elizabethan adventure, made the Anglo-
Saxon the predominant partuerfin the
world's firm. Tho world, at least its
governors, do not much like such men
as those who keep tbem awake at
night, and so the greatest Englishman
of our day has coino to be looked upon
with somowhat mixed feelings. Ho
had a never failing confidence in the
growth of tho federal system of the
government. I personally have always
opposed home rule, being at that time
in the bouse of commons, I left Mr.
(Hailstone's     party   over   this   issue.
Rhodes, however, never wearied of
I assuring me that I ougltt to have gone
j forward, that iu tbis direction alone
I was safety.
"Rhodes, in the first place, was
premier in Cape Colony, he knew
I Kruger would light to tile death any
federation of South Africa nnder our
flag; he knew that either South Afiiea
must come under the Dutch flag or the
English flag.
"If the Transvaal, arming to the
teeth.continued this condition of preparation, then, also every man in our
colony of Natal must similarly arm.
It is no longer possible that a cioss
board of little armed 'nations' can be
permitted. Rhodes saw this; he saw
that, 'independence' on the Kruger
plan was incompatible with individual freedom ; that involved all round
Passing to the effect of the death of
bis friend, Loid (Jrey said :
"The world will be poorer, no one
will dream such dreams, and try to
draw them on maps; no one living
porhapB, will try as he tried to federate the Empire on the American system. A great genius goes out with
Rhodes; true bis work will go forward in somo ways more smoothly
perhaps, becauso ho had inevitably
aroused great antagonism,but ne shall
not see his l��ke again, and bis passing
will for mo and many others take
much color from our lives."

The delegation from tbe Associated
Hoards of Trade, which recently convened in Kaslo met the government a
lew days since and presented tho matters which they had been directed to.
Tbe main question presented by the
delegates was the protest against the
tax of two per cent on the product of
the ore from the njines.less the freight
and treatment charges. The delegates
held, and with very good reason, too,
that tbis tax bears heavily and sometime* unfairly upon thuse mines which
only return a small net profit per ton
of ore. Tho smmlness of tbe profit is
due to large cost ol mining, or to the
low grade of the ore. The Colonist,
wbich i? the mouthpiece of tbe government, treats the petition in rather
a cavalier mannei. For instance, it
compares the royalty collected by the
government out ol tlie product of ore
to tbe poll tax. It says if a rich mining company is not making a profit
out of its ore it ought to be taxod just
the same because the poll tax is levied
whether the laboring man is working
cr not. This is not a proper spirit, and
if it represent.* the sentiments of the
government, it is not tbe right sort to
display towards an industry which if
properly fostered will be of the greatest help to the province ln making it
rien and prosperous. The tax as at
present levied works in many in-
stances an Injustice, as it often has
the effect of actually increasing the
losses of a mining company. Supposing, for instance, that two per cent,
was taken from the gross proceeds of
the eoal that is mined by Mr. Dunsmuir and others in this provioce, less
the cost of freight, what a howl
would go up about injustice. We ore
not talking about 3 per cent, on the
profits, as the miners aro not allowed
to deduct the cost of mining from tlie
gross returns from their ore. If it
would be unjuit and inequitable in
tbe one case why not in the other?
Some more equitable tux should be
placed on the mines and tho burdens
thrown upon them should be made as
light as possible.
Another matter presented by the
hoards of tride was the request that
tbe recording fee for recording annual
assessment be raised from $2.50 to
$12.B0. This is something that should
not be done. Mayor Qopdonough, of
Kaslo, and ti F. Martin, a banister
of that city, wero on hind at Victoria
to protest against tbe raising of the
recording fee and entered a vigorous
protect ugainst its being done. Tbey
stated that it would be a seri >us mistake to inciease the rscoroli g fee on
each annual assessment from |3,50 to
$12.50 as suggested by the Associated
Th Kaslo boaid of trade's suggestion
that tbo government should appoint a
commission to take evidence on the
question ot milling taxation is a good
one, This board could by catiful
inquiry and the taking of evidence
arrive at u prop"r conclusion on the
subject aud frame an equitable substitute for tbe present manifestly unfair
The government promised to take

dent of the Geographical   society   and
founder of Nigeria,    has just returned
to London   from a thorough investigation of South Airican affairs.      While
there he conferred with   Lord Milner,
Lord   Kitchener,    Cecil   Rhodes,     Sir
William    Iieiy-Uutchinson,   governor
of the Cape of Good   Hope,   and other
prominent   personages.     Sir     (leorge
regards the condition in   Cape   Colony
as dangerous   and he says tbat serious
ditliculties will be   encountered   there
in   tbe   future,    besides those   which
exists at   present.     The   question   of
pe.-u'e negotiations rests in   the   bands
of President Steyn, as be declares that
Mr. Kruger and   the   other   Boers  of
Europe     no   longer     represent   Boer
sentitnerit.     The real   obstacle   in the
path of peace, he believes, is the question of granting   Bmnesty   to tbe Cape
and Natal rebels. The vague promises
made by tbe   British    government   in
the past have not   the shghest   weight
while tbe rebels are in   their   present
frame of mind.    Sir (leorge favors the
granting of amnesty to the   rebels but
insists that everyone   be disfranchised
for life.    He estimates   tbat the Boers
have   a   force   of   10,000   men in  tbe
field. Tbis is a remarkable number in
view   of   the fact that  according to a
recent   compilation   there   are  42,000
Boer prisoners.   The estimate is based

The fact that the British army
authorities in South Africa have
allowed Acting President Schalkburger
and his party to pass through their
lines on their way to KronBtadt to
endeavor to induce the Boers to come
to terms would indicate that they
think that there is some hope of
bringing tbem to proper terms.

Thc release of General   Methuen by
Commandant     Delarov,      no     matter
whether   the   act   was   inspired     by
chivalry   or   because   the Boer   ufllcer
did not desire to trouble   himself with
a wounded prisoner,    has   produced a
good impression in llreat Britain   and
tbere   is   renewed talk ol peace.   The

The long cherished dreams of the
people of Cuba for self government
will be realized on May 20th, when
the United States will withdraw its
military forces irom the island and
turn _e diiection of its affairs over to
tbe recently elected President Palma
and bis cabinet. After many
struggles, after much bloodshed and
cruel repression the Cubans are a free
people and will oDjoy the luxury of
living without being under the Spanish yoke. It will be a glorious day
for General (Jomez and his fellow
patriots who fought so hard and so
long and made so many patriotic
sacrifices for freedom. It remains
now to be seen whether the rather
turbjleut people who inhabit Cuba
are capable of self government, and
doubtless in case tbey are not it may
.et be the duty of the United States to
step in and take the island over. The
giving of Cuba to the Cubans is in consequence of a promise made at the
commencement of the Spanish-Ameri-
can/vnr by the United States to the
insurgents who were then fighting for
freedom against Spain, that thc war
was not one of conquest and that in
tho event of victory tbe island should
be turned over to the people. The
United Stutes in keeping faith with
the people of Cuba is performing a
magnanimous action, for Cuba, which
is known us the pearl of the Antilles,
is a most valuable possession. The
United States is entitled to great
credit for its action.
Although the Americans were so
kind on tbe one banc as to give the
Cubans the country for which they
fought, on the ether hand, and notwithstanding that the war was not at
first intended to be one of conquest,
brfore it was over, they became
alllictod with tlie lust for territory
and when the opportunity came they
took possession of the Philippines.
Tho people thore had beeu engaged in
a struggle for freedom whicn broke
out at intervals during several centuries against the Spanish rulers. In
many respects the situation waa similar tu that in Cuba. Thore is no talk,
however, ol giving tho Filipinos
liberty nnd the right to self government which thev so much long for.
In one case a promise was givon, nnd
in the other this was not the case.
Tho Filipinos besides aro an entirely
different kind of people from the
Cubans and broke faith with the
United States, The determination is,
therefore, to subjugate tbem, and this
is being slowly but surely done. As
the Americans are better colonizers
and wiser governors than the Spanish
thoy will, wo believe, he able in the
course of a few yenrs to tranquilizc
the people and will give them' an
infinitely superior government to
that whioh prevailed during Spanish
ascendancy. In time the Filipinos
should become loyal American
advances made by Marconi with wireless telegraphy were made. In view,
however, of the piomised perfection
of ihe wireless system it might be a
wise move on the psrt of the Canadian
government to postpone tlie construction of the proposed cable for a period
in order that it be known whether the
Marooni system will not render the
cable obsolete. Cables are costly and
it is better to wait for a time rather
than to make an expenditure for one
which in the course of a short period
might become valueless.
There was a time whenneaily all
of onr mining was of the haphazard,
cut ana dry, variety; and during
that period speculation was rife and
all mining was considered as a grand
gamble and lottery, says Alines and
Mineral. Mining is now being done
upon a more or less scientific basis
and tbe mining business compares
favorably with any other business in
the country, but the impression that
it is all a lottery still prevails among
a, large class of people. The best cure
for tbis condition is tbe education of
the general public as to the true
status of the mining industry at the
preseut time. The more widely miniug information is disseminated
throughout the country, tbo more
stable will tbo mining business
become and the more popular will be
miniug Investments. Educate the
public in regard to the magnitude of
the mining industry and its present
condition, and the mining lakir must
of necessity disappear and become
an extinct specigs.

Be Sure and Get the Genuine. _\
The gruesome  murders   of the Benders   and   the awful   crimes of Burke
have     parallel   in   a   guild of criminals who   were   banded   together   for
robbery   and   murder   at   lleaumont,
Texas.    No less than BO murders, it is
said, can be traced to this gang.    The
scheme of the thugs   was to   approach
men in saloons Or   on   street   corners,
entice   them   to the house of   a negro
woman,   who   gav.i thorn   "knockout
drops."     Tnen,   while    unconscious,
they    wore    robbed     and    in   most
instances   murdered,   as   tbe   ruffians
went on the old black flag theory that
"dead men tell no tales."   Tht bodies
were   thrown   into   the water   where
they were nearly always   devoured by
alligators. For about a year past large
numbers of strangers have   Hoiked   to
Beaumont owing to the oil disooveries
there.       As    those   murdered     were
usually     strangers   there     waB    less
chance for inquiries,   concerning them
and   for   a   long time the   murderers
plied their horrible   vocation   without
lisoovery.     The lleaumont  tragedies
convey   tbe   moral   that   visitors    to
strange cities should be   careful  witb
whom   they     associate   and     should
endeavor  to   mix   only v; ith those of
known respectability and   reputation.

Puts a Dash of the Comic in tho Case
For Threatening.
At the court house yesterday the
case of John Mclntyre, who was
charged by li. A. Ibbotson with
threatening to "smash him" and
whom the latter asked to have bound
over to keep the peace, eaiuo up for
trial. The trial occupied all of the
morning session and a good deal of
the afternoon, owing to the difliuulty
of getting proper evidence from two
of the witnesses, who apparently
were indisposed. Tho two principals
in tho quarrel were related and, as
tbe magistrate remarked, the whole
affair arose out of bickering and that
under ordinary circumstances he
would have bound both parties over
to keep the peace.
One of tbe witnesses especially
caused considerable suppiessed hilar-
ity among the audience in the court
room. As he carao on to be sworn ho
remarked confidentially to the magistrate that he was "a Bob Ingersoll
man but respected tlio law and had no
objection to taking the oath." This
drew a sharp rebuke from Mr.
Crease, who asked him what he meant
by offering to be sworn if he did not
believe in the scriptures. This the
witness indignantly repudiated, and
said he did believo tuem, bis former
remark being figurative.
lie then was questioned as to the
defendant's reputation but acccording
to the reply it was hnrd to judge what
this was, as "some thoug! t ho was a
good fellow, while otheis thought he
was any kind of an old thing.''
Aftor considerable fruitless questioning he was asked if lie had not
been drinking intoxicating liquor.
"I had my hair cut.''
"Anything else?"
"Yes, I had a shave."
"Anything else?"
"Well, I have not tounned liquor
since last July till this morning, and
then I had a drink,"
The magistrate finally cut short the
testimony of the witnesses and dismissed the oase with costs against the

A meeting of the Independent Labor

party on that occasion.
A member of the band discussing
the probability of having a band lor
the coming summer says it is only a
question of money. In times past the
Nelson band has had a reputation for
ability that is wider than the province. It has regularly played music
which few except professional bands
attempt, and in every way bas been
ono of which tbe city might be proud
of. The patronage has been limited
while the cost of maintenance has
been high. The band, therefore, has
usually bad difficulty in procuringsuf-
licient funds to buy music and to pay
the wages of the men for the time
they pjse from their regular employment. The sum of $200 a month
assured, or even a little less, would
assure a band for Nelson whicb,
though uot perhaps in number*,, at
least in ability, will equal tbat of any
band outside the largo citios.
A number of the rifle shots of the
