After the viands had beon discussed,

acted as toastmaster, proposed the toast
"The King and tho Cinft," which was
responded to by all standing aud singing the National Atliein.
G. W. Kydd rendered -'Annie
Laurie" in an effective manner and
was rewarded with vigorous applause.
The toast " The (Irand Lodge of
British Columbia'' was first responded
to by E. E. Chipman, R. W. Deputy
Grand Master, in a felicitious manner. He declared that Messrs. Byers
and Quinlan had visited all of the
lodges in tho jurisdiction .and were
most intimately acquainted with the
lodges and could give a good
account of them. He was proud to
state that masonry was growing and
flourishing and spoke of the great
pleasure it gave him to visit Nelson
lodge and to meet his many old
friends among its members. In conclusion he thanked the members for
the very cordial rcceptiou accorded
him, both on his own behalf and that
of the grand lodge.
R.W. District Deputy H. Byers gave
a pleasing and interesting address in
response to the toast of "The Grand
Lodge." Gatherings like the present,
he said, were beneficial aline to
masonry and its members. He spoke
of the great harmony that existed
among the lodges of the order nnd said
ne hoped to fii-.d the lodges iu East
Kootenay equally prosperous.
V. W. Orand Secretary Quinlan told
some humorous incidents concerning
Messrs. Chipman and Byers wbich
brought down the house. Tlie present
year, he said, was the most prosperous
masonry had over had in Biitish
Columbia. There soon would be 38
lodges, where 11 years since when he
was first made grand secretary there
were bnt 13.
W. Bro. G. L. Lennox sang the
"Tho Maple Leaf Forever" in flue
' The Old Guard of Masonry in
Nelson" was respondod to by Wor.
Bro. W. A. Jowett, who heartiy
thanked the members (or the enthusiastic manner in which they had received the toast. He had been connected with masonry in the Kootenays for ten years and it pleased him
greatly to note the progress it was
W. Bro. Dr. E. C. Arthur responded
to tho toast "Old Guard of Masonry"
and gave an interesting account of the
first masonic logde in Nolson in 1803
and how it had grown and flourished
since that time.
W, Bro. George Johnstone also
responded to the toast of the "Old
Guard of Masonry" and spoke of the
necessity of getting the best muetrial
inthe ordei. Masonry, ho declared
had higher purposes than that of holding meetings and conferring degrees.
Captain Duncan also responded to
the toast of "Tho Old luard" and
gave ono of his humorous talks which
elicited a round ol applause.
"The Visitiug Brethern" was re-
spono to llrst by L.G. tlcndeison. who
mado a bliof but sensible talk. Captain Gifford responded to the same
toast in an interesting manner.

The War Office Will Ignore
Them Until Formally
Transvaalers Fcr Peace but
Free Staters Hold
London, April 9.���The charges made
against the conduet of British troops
in South Africa attributed ti General
Delarey have not been brought to thc
notice of the war office, and will be
ignored unless a question on thc subject is aiked in the House of Commons. Even in this event it is not
probable that any action will be
taken, unless a responsible authority
formulates charges in a more definite
and more direct form. It is pointed
out that if General Delarey had w ish-
ed to make such allegations he had
ample opportunity to communicate
them to Lord Kitchener, who, it is
believed at tho war olliee, woulc have
notified the home government of the
fact wbich he has not done.
Gerald Balfour, president of tlie
Hoard of Trade, said in a speech at
Leeds tonight that if the Boers still
insisted on independence the present
so-called peace negotiations in South
Africa might as wel'. bu broken off
The Associated Press understands
that the peace negotiations are progressing satisfactorily so far as the
Transvaalers are concerned; but tho
latest advices Indicate that there is
sinali probability of the Free Staters
surrendering in a body.
The negotiations thus tar have i>k.o
mainly explanations oi British intentions. It has beon made plain to tho
leaders that tlieir surrender will not
ODtail banishment, and this has a
potent influence. The leadiog Transvaalers urge their allies to arrange
peace terms. The inner circles of the
war otlico believe that if the present
indications are fulfilled and the
Tansvaalers agree to surrender, the
backbone of Boer resistence will be
broken and that the Free Staters' opposition will soon be overcome.

Manila Paper Very Severely
Criticises Major Waller's
Gareer of Reckless Boldness
and  Unreasonable
Victoria, April 9.���Tho Manib^
Times treats without gl^MHSjcuf
Waller ol tho United StateS-Marine
corps, who is being trod iu Manila
for tho murder of nativos, who ft is
alleged he had tortured. Tho paper
recounts tho alleged murders and acts
of cruolty and adds Major Waller's
previous appearance before a court
martial in Cavite when he was exonerated . *
He was of opinion that all that was
necessary in Samar was to form a
chain oi posts-across thc island and
drive and bag the insurgents like so
many rabbits. His plan proved a sad
failure, some twenty men losing theii
lives and many,more corning out of a
nightmare experience in" the hospital"
witb marks whtch tliujr wiJJ^iarry. to
their dying days. The "lajor went in
to establish a record and he certainly
did it. It is' believed that his sad
failure irritated him somewhat and
caused him to resort to the terribly
drastic measures already related.   -
Major Waller's career in the-mari.-.o
corps has beon a picturesque blending
of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde characteristics. In his varying moods he has
been piince bountiful to "his j-other
officers and even to persons outside the
service; at otjbers his "'soldiers, subalterns and e jil-.-rhis ft-llow citizens
hove ie_.__ i,. approach him on legitimate business lie exeruprrmrtt ^.i.
sides of Ills nature during the China
campaign a year and a half ago. His
undoubted courage and devil-may-care
mannor made him popular with certain of tho soldiers but others told
some dark tales. Among others it was
said that on the advance from Tonku
to Tientsin where an American and a
Russian battalion were ambushed and
enfiled, Major Waller gave orders to
abandon two wounded men and that
had it not been for the nerve nf a little medical officer and a lieutenant,
who stoutly protested that they would
never leave the field so long as a
wounded man remained behind, the
order would havo been obeyed. This
matter was hushed up but those who
witnessed it allowed it to be inferred
that had not the order been countermanded, a tragedy such as has seldom
occurred in the American service
would havo happened.

Shortage of Canadian   and   Argentine
Stock Sends Moat Up.
Liverpool, April O.���The rise in the
price ol meat hero is attribued more
to the prohibition of Canadian and
Argentine cattle than to the American
beel combination. During the first
quarter ot this year more than 8,000
fewer cattle were imported through
Liverpool than during the corresponding period of 11)01. and the South
American dead meat trade has failed
to oompensate for this shortage.
The butchers' associaiion and the
association ol foreign cattlo traders
aver that the scarcity in meat will
increase unless the government permit
tne entry of South American ana
Canadian live cattle which might
safely bo clone, as disease among the
stock has disappeared.

The Canadian at Dornbalt. though
overwhelmed by sevenfold their number covered themselves with glory and
rellected the highest honor on the
country which gave tnem birth. When
called upon to surrender by the enemy
Lieutenant Carruthers, though he
recognized tliat he and his little band
were boplessly outnumbered,sprang to
his feet and exclaimed that he wouH
not surrender and shot the foremost of
tbe Iloers dead. Then began one of
the most stubborn ol resistances which
was kept up until ol the Heroic ha__
only 1", were alive and unwound-
ed. Then the Doers made a rush and
captured the handful who were still
Bgbtinir. The bravery exhibited was
ro great that it excited even the admiration of the Boers and when it
was proposed to shoot Lieutenant
Carruthers the majority was against
it, saying he was too brave a man to
die that way. The severity ol the
fight may be judged from tho fact that
all of the oeaJ and most of the injured
had several wounds.
All Canadians must thrill with
pride over the way their countrymen
fought and died against the fearful
odds which confronted them at Dorn
has suddenly ceased to exist as currency and bfl been transformed into
a check on the United States government, having all of the safety of any
check and ready for incljsure in a
letter. When the payee receives this
check be treats it just as he would
any other check, indorses it and goes
to the nearest bank or postoflice and
deposits it or has it cashed.
The paid check finally reaches the
treasury department, when it is replaced by a new one with lho blank
place unfilled. This keeps the circu-
la'.iou at par.
No change is made in tho financial
policy of tbe government whatever.the
only change being in the character
of the bills of i'i Bnd under.
The bill also provides for the issue
of 178,000,000 in fractional currency
with blank space similar to those on
the bilis of larger denomination. The
government fee on the 5,10,15, 85, and
50 cent pieces is to be one cent each.
The many advantages of this system
are obvious.     It will not be necessary
for anyone   desiring to eend a   mouey
order   to   go   to the postoffice aud   go
through the formality of purchasing a
money order,which involves a considerable loss of time.   With a supply of
these bills on band small sums can be
sent without this trouble.     The   government   would   derive   considerable
revenue from tbe staups cancelled on
the bills and besides  would be relieved of the trouble and cost  of   mal-ing
nut   imney   orders,   and the only expense would be that of   printing   and
cancelling the bills.     If the system is
adopted iu the  United States it is certain to be copied by other countries.

Thev were in a position of th
raanfuiiy   confronted   it   and raadu
shining record for themselves, Tbey
showed that they inherited the pluck
oi brave ancestors when they preferred
death to surrender. It was a splendid
displav ol tliat true Lruvery which is
admired by all mankind, aud ibe
pages of tbo history of the war in
South Africa whiuh contains the
account of tbo struggle at Dornbalt
will be read with much pride by the
people of Canada in tlie future.
In every trying position in which
the Canadian volunteers have been
placed they have showed themselves
to be iutcrpid soldiers, resourceful,
alert and aide to tuke care ol themselves under any and all circumstances.
When alone or in numbers our boys
have the capacity of taking the initi-
ati-.o. The troops ol the regular
army have Heen trained in a different
school, Tbey are used to depending on
tlieir officers on every occasion as all
their training bas been against relying on themselves,and,tberelqre,when
out of bearing of tlic voice of those
in command they boom to lie hclplcES.
It is the very opposite with those who
are rented in Canada and particularly
in tbe went, where the spii it of independence an i self rolilnce is the
strongest. Tbis results 11 the production of a man who is vei , ilnsbl 1 in
the kind of warfare tl t i being
waged in South Adieu, rleuce we
believe had Lord Kitcf-euer 40,000
Canadians under bis command tne
war in South Allien could be quickly
brought to a close.
Among the bills pending before congress is one which will, if adopted,
greatly faciliatc the sending of
money through the mails, aud it is so
simple and hns so many good features
about it that it could, we believe,with
prollt, come into use in tbis country,
as it would be of great benefit to those
living remote from money order post-
The measure is known as the pott
check currency, bill and provides lor
the printing of II, )3 and $r, bills in
the future with lilanlr spaces on tbe
face. Thcsu bills nre legal tender and
pass from band to hand before they
are used. When it is desired to send
one through the mails the blanks are
filled in with tbe name of the payee,

F. Aug. beinze, who built the
Trail smelter and the Columbia and
Western railway from Trail to Rossland and from Trail to Kobson, and
who was a very prominent figure iu
the Kootenays a few years sioee, has
since made a large fortune by his
brilliant operations in copper mines
and smelters in ISutte and vicinity.
His career has been a remarakle one.
Starting a few years since as an
assayer in Ilutte ne has in about a
docade acquired a fortune which is
valued at many milions. He is
Napoleonic in his methods, is a man
of wonderful business and executive
capacity and has shown that be is
able to hold his own among the bright
and adriot copper kings of Butte, even
where they have had many times bis
resources. He shines as a tighter and
when he emerges from a contest, legal
or political.it 19 generally as a victor.

no telling what bis wealth  will be by
the   time he has lived another ten   or
fifteen years.    He is a man essentially
of   large affairs and bis   latest scheme
is the organization of a gigantic   copper company of which he is to bo   the
president   and   leading   spirit.    It is
stated that then the company will   be
capitalized   at  $".0,1)1)0,000,   of which
$���111,000,000 will be common  and   $10,-
000,000 preferred stock. Tbe properties
now grouped under  his name have an
annual output between 35,000,000   and
fiO 000,000 pounds of copper   per   year.
Mr. Ileinzehas beon engaged in a contest
for some time with the   Amalgamated
Copper Co.,  a   powerful   organization
in   the   metal market,   and it is   said
that   tho   new   company, which he   is
forming, is for the purpose of making
a   better   contest   with   his   wealthy
coprorate adversary.      With a  strong,
well   equipped and wealthy organization   behind   him   it is   certain   that
Bi Inze will be a   more   potent factor
than ever in   the   metal   market   and
even the Amalgamated had better look
to its laurels.

The bond on the Morrisou mine, to
be paid today, says the Spjkanc
Chronicle of Tuesday.has been thrown
up by A. C. Whitney, of Chicago, and
the property will be entirely in the
hands of the Morrison company tomorrow. Up till last night it was
thought the bond would be taken up
and the properly transferred. If, H.
Oliver, manager of the Morrison, received a wire last night stating that
the bond oould not be paid.
The bond was for if 185.OUI) and tbe
promoters of the bond wore una'ilo tu
raise lhat amount. In addition tney
had also to pledge $125,000 for development purposes. This would make a
total of $1)10,000 for the mine.
Of this sum but $148,000 could be
raised, and tliat under tbe condition
that fhe 8125,000 for immediate development be forthcoming. It is not yet
known what will be done by the
Morrison company. A meeting of the
di ectors will have to bo call-.d to lay
out future plans.
Marc Gilliam is in from the
liayonne group. He-reports that the
drift tunnel has been driven for 2110
feet and that HO feet of crosscutting
has been dono. The breast of the
drift has a vertical depth of 00 feet.
The ledge is 30 feet in width and is
looking well. The intention is to
lttep np the development continuously
during the year, although it may be
necessary to shut down for a month
owing to the impossibility of getting
in supplies until Juno. It is thought
the supplies on hand will be used up
before June. Pour men aro now at
work. Mr. Gilliam says the snow is
commencing to thaw and that the
journey of 27 miles from Kootneay
lake to the group at this season is a
difficult one. Mr. Gilliam is at the
Hume and intends to remain in town
for several days.
Word comes from Ymir that Mr.
Wood, who was at ono time foreman
on the Ymir mine, has returned to
Ymir and will take up the development of some other properties in the
vicinity of the Ymir mine. Mr.
Wood has the reputation of understanding the geological formation and
the trend of the ore bodies of that
camp, and as the properties he has in
view havo good surface showings, the
(act that he has the directing of capital is looked upon with satisfaction
by Ymir people.
A small force of men has heen put
at norrf on the Summit company's
property, on Summit creok, about
seven miles from Ymir. On this property there has heen a gieat deal of
work done which has shown up a
large and continuous body of ore. It
is the intention of the company now
o do about 200 feet of woik and probably this will be followed by 300 foet
moie. A wagon road has been constructed to the property and it is well
supplied with the necessary buildings.

A fire took place at 8 o'clock last
evening which did considerable damage to a house on East Haker street
between Hendryx and Hall, belonging
to W. N. Rolie, aud oconpled at the
time hy E. Smith. Tho fire lasted
about an bour and did about $800
worth ot damage,
Smith, who was living alone in tho
house, which is a two-story frame
building, bad taken a bath and was
just goiug to bed. As he passed a
table in *he bedroom on which a coal
oil lamp was standing, he accidentally pulled the tuble cloth, upsetting
the lamp,which Immedately exploded,
on tbe bed. Smith seized some
clothes and rushed out into the street
and au alarm of Ure was sent in by
lelephono from the laundiy across the
street. Whon the brigade arrived,
owing to the extreme dryness of the
building, the fire bad obtained a good
hold from the blazing oil,and running
up between the Inner and outer walls
set Are to the roof. The Uro sproad
inside the wall, and Oiled the house
with dense smoke although but little
Ore oould be seen for some time except
at the back whore the flames burst
out through the roof at the cornice.
Smitn was greatly excited and tried
to run Into the house repeatedly, having to be restrained by tho police.
He was finally persuaded to go into a
nelghboritg house. A strong hoad of
water was on, as a number of spectators on the north side of tho stroet
realized to their cost, when a btroam
uf water from tho bose whicb was
being played at thc rear found its way
over the roof and deluged the crowd.
The damage done was principally lo
tho roof which was burned through.
Two rooms upstairs escaped altogther
and only ono room clown stairs was

When You Tell People to Quit Ooffee
"At   least   75  people   among    my
acquaintances   have   boon   helped   or
cured by leaving oft' coffee and   using
I'ostum   food   Coffee   in   its   place,'
writes  a   little woman from Indopen
donee, Ia.    "1 will mention one case
Miss   Cora .    1   learned she   was
suffering   from   nervousness and eon
htipation   and   went   to call on   her.
Found her in bed, and she looked like
a   living   skeletjn.   so wild and   haggard that 1 feared for her reason.
1 asked Cora II she was improving
any. She said uot but was gradually
growing worse. Tho doctor was
coming twice a day and giving her a
powerful nervine, She said, 'I am
so miserable that I tell you privately
if I don't get better soon I will end it
all myself some day." 1 told her not
to talk tliat way for I believed it was
something she ate or chunk that cans
od the trouble and she might get well
by making a change in her diet,
told her my own experience in leaving
off ooffee when 1 waa In almost as baa
a shape _f she. but as soon as I inen-
lionen coffee I had a fight on my
hands, tor she insisted that coffee
helped her nud ber mother backed hoi
in it saying that it was 'the only
thing sho did enjoy' and 'she did not
believe ooffee hurt anyone.'
1 talked with them a long timo and
finally got Cora to agree to lot me
niako a cup of I'ostum Food Coffee for
her supper. alio was surprised that it
wus so good. Said she 'had heard it
was terrible wishy-washy stuff.' I
told her it was because they did not
follow directions in boiling it enough.
She promised to use it faithfully for
two or throe weeks and if she wns not
better I wonld admit that was I
I went to see hor again in about ten
days and Cora met me at tiie door
witli a smilo and said "Ada, your
doctor I'ostum is the best doctor of
them all. 1 can sleep all night, can
eat heartily, and am growing stronger
every day. Ma and all the rest of us
use Postum now in place  of coffee'
The facts aro the girl was being
actually poisoned to death by coffee.
Cora has since married and has a
happy home and you may depend
upon it no coffee is allowed to enter
there." Name given by I'ostum Co.,
Battle Creek, Mioh.

Thoie will he the regular meeting
of tbe Nelson board of tiadc this
evening at H.M o'doek in the hoard
The regular monthly meeting of the
hospitnl board wus held on Tuesday
afternoon, there being a good attendance of tbe members, Hesides the
routine business it was decided that
the maternity ward of the hospital
should be done away with as soon as
the present contracts expire. Tne
building will then be turned into a
residence fur nurses, that being tlie
purpose for which it was built. It
was also deoided that the tender system of purchasing supplies should be
continued and that supplies would be
purchased on six month contracts.
Thero was not a large attendance at
the concert given hy the Cosgrove
orchestra last ovening in the Opera
House under the auspices of the
Ladies' hospital aid, but the programme was one that pleased all
lovers of music. All the numbers wero
instrumental wth the exception of the
vooal solo hy a boy baritone, which,
though remarkably good for one so
young, was hardly up to the mark
when judged apart from this consideration. The dunce held in connection
with   the   concert   took   plaoe lo the
Fraternity hall and wai well attended
and the surroundings novo well
suited for an enjoyable time which
tnose who attended certainly had.
The musio of the Cosgrovo orchostra
was much appreoiatcd.
The new Wall Papers attract favorable attention. They leflcct good
taste in colors as well as in pattern,
and people of taste ccmrnend them.
Thev have an air of elegance and aro

in snch Wall Paper is a paying investment, before placing your order, it
will pay you to ace onr new designs,
