American [alls at il o'clock this evening. It was the most sensational suicde
in years. The woman jumped ovor
the railing of Goat Island bridge,
about ton foet from shore. William

FIRE IN NANAIMO.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINEIl.)
Nanaimo, April 3���Fire broke out ut
11 o'clock tonight in a big boarding
house on Fraser street, neal the centre
oi the city, and is now blazing. The
building is doomed and surrounding
buildings are threatened. Tho fire
department is handicapped   for   want

W. A. Macdonald, IC. C, is back
(rom Ottawa, whithor ho went to appear before tho Supreme court of
Canada in two British Columbia appeals. One was Fawcett vb. C.P.R.
In lrlflii. Conductor Fawcett was killed
on the C.P.R, at Robson, and this
action was brought by his father to
recover damages. On the trial in
Nelson, Mr. Justice Irving dismissed
the case and on appeal to the Supreme
court of tho province this decision
was uphold. Appeal was taken to the
Supreme court of Canada and the
decision has uot yot been given.
Associated with Mi. Macdonald for
the C.P.R. was E. P. Davis, K.C., ot
Vanoouver, while ,1. T. Garrow. I(.
C, of Goderieh, was counsel fur Elliot
and Lennie, who represented the
plaintiff in thc llritish Columbia
courts.
The other case was Collom vs. Man-
ley, an action regarding the title to a
fractional claim adjoining the Ailing-
ton mine in the Slocan. This case
chiefly relies on the question whether
suction 24 of Iho Mineral Act cures
defects in tho location of a mineral
claim. E. P. Davi?, of Vancouver,
appeared with Mr. Macdonald for
Collom and W. A. Galliher, M.P., for
Mauley. In this caso also, judgment
wus reserved.
As to metalliferous mining, Mr.
Macdonald stated that thore was a
disposition not to inves*. in them on
the part of onstt-rii Canadian people
for the present, the chiel objection
being the unstable form of government that has prevailed here for somo
time. The people there would prefer
a party in power tbat would be likely
to remain tor tho regular term of four
years, whether Liberal or Conservative. There havo been so many
changes in the labor and other conditions that thoy prefer to wai t or
some time. Conl and iron propositions
seem to he their favorite investments
and were any in the production of
thoso minerals offered lhe people
would be disposed to invest liberally.
The shaics of the ("row's Nest Coal
company had advanced very rapidly
which showed how thoy viewed such
an enterprise.
Mr. Macdonald thought that were
the matter pushed vigorously that
thoro was a possibility that a duty on
lead would be ltnpoEOd in order to
protect the smelting and refining in-
dustiy.the samo as other manufactures
are. Nono that he spoke to would
advance any argument against the
step,particularly in view of the bonus
and protection that iB granted to the
iron industry.
The ueputation from the Associated
boards of trade had not reached Ottawa
when he was there.
He was disappointed on returning
to find complaints of slack business
prevalent in Nelsou. He thought there
was no justification for this feeling
as business condit ons here wore comparatively good.
NEW POLITICAL PARTY.

i Account of Court Martial on

War,
Avenged Officer's Murder and
Participants Severely
Punished,
London, April 8,���Lieut. Witton,
one oi thn Australians sentencud to
life imprisonment at penal servitude
at tho same timo that the Australian
officers were sentenced to be shot for
shouting and robbing Boors who were
travelling to Pietersburg with tbe
object of surrendering, has arrivod in
England to sorve his sentonce. He
give an account of tho affair as fol-
luws: Oue of their (three Australian)
officers had been murdorei hy Boors.
Shortly afterwards, tho Australians
captured a number of Boors including
one wearing ihe uniform of the murdered office!. They immediutly held
a drum court martial, found the man
guilty and ordered him to be shot.
For this the Australians were arrested
in October and tried by court martial.
Their sentences, after revision hy the
Imperial government, were communicated to them in February. Two of
the Australians were 6hot."
IN A DIl.EMNA.
Gorman Prohibition of Importation of
Meats Premature.
Berlin, April 3.���The government
has been placed in a mest awkward
position on tho prohibition of the importation of meat treated wilh boraoic
acid, hy a declaration today of the
society for tho protection of the in-
teiests of tho German chemical industry, that the government did not oon-
suit the Imperial health council. This
body composed of eminent specialists
from all parts of Germany is advisory
to the Imperial health office. The
government's statement in the North
Gorman Gazette Saturdav affirmed
that tho council was unanimously for
prohibition. It now appears according
to the chemical society that the mat-
tei was never brought before the
council.
A prominent member of the council
informed the Imperial Secretary of
State for the Interior, prior to the
publication of the statement in the
North German Gazette that he was
surprised that so important a step had
been taken without consultiug the
council which was decidedly against
prohibition.
Awaiting His Appointment to
Command Canadian
Militia.
Recognizes In Citizen Soldiers
Strongest Bulwark of
Empire.
Montreal, Apiil 8,���The Star's London cable says: 1 have authority to
stato that Lord Dundonald, of Lady-
smith fame, will assume command of
Canadian militia at the termination ol
Gen. O'Grady Haly's term of office.
Lord Dundonald is now at Ascot
awaiting the gazetting of his appointment. Iu view of Lord Dundonald's
selection, I have turned np recent
expressions of his own. lis has tremendous belief in citizen soldiers as
an increasingly important element in
the defence of tho empire and in providing freolv everything to secure tbis
efficiency. He points to his experiences in Natal in the dark days of
1890-1111)0 as proof of the splendid work
in the field which civilian soldiers
were capable of doing when formed
into regiments undbr good regimental
officers.
lie says that en the true recognition
of citizen soldiers depends tho solution of one of the gravest political
problems before our race. Ho dwells
on the paramount importance of good
shooting to make lho empire safe.
Such are the changed conditions ol
warfare, wo must he a niitch for tho
euomy at a thousand yeards or moro
uv.'ay. This is only attained by constant practice at rifle shooting.
Lord Dundonald anticipates his
work in Canada with the keenest
interest. He duly appreeintos that the
oonditions of Canadian life whieh
must guide him, il possible, to avoid
the pitfalls of his predecessors. Lord
Dundonald sends me this message for
publication: ''Canadians who solved
under me iu South Africa, were men
from the tops of their heads to the
soles of their feet, or to be more explicit, there aro persons with ritlcs
and men with rifles. When a general
has men under him with rifles, he
knows what ho can do and what risks
he can take."

Iloers Charge that Louisiana Supply
Station is Unlawful.
Washington.April B,���Secretary Hay
has recoivod from Governor Heard, ol
Louisiana, the statement referred to
in this morning's publications alleging the existence of a British camp
atChalmetto just below New Orleans
on the Mississippi river. By direction of the president it has been referred to the attorney-general with a
view to securing an opinion on certain legal points involved. Meanwhile
it will not be mado public.
Wiile the State department will not
hestitate a moment to make inquiry
into the correctness of any charge preferred by any responsible person, such
as tho governor of Louisiana, it is believed that even now the departmtnt
is not without its own idea as to what
is going on at Chaluietto anc this
Knowledge has not shaken the department's original view that thoso operations aie entirely lawful.
Goncral Samuel Pearson, formerly
of the Boer army, has returned to
Washington from Now Orleans where
he wont to gather proof to substantiate his charge tbat thu llritish
authorities in Louisiana have set up a
regular military establishment fiom
which their army in South Africa is
being furnished with men, horses,
mules und supplies. General Pearson
made this charge iu a letter to President Roosevelt who, he says, sent to
Governor Heard off Louisiana or investigation and report and the latter,
in turn, culled upon him (Pearson)
for proofs.

Impressive Ceremonies Previous to Removal of Rhodes' Remains.
Capetown, April 3.���Throughout tho
morning contiuous streams of people
passed by tbo coffin containing the
body of Ceoil Rhodes, as it rested in
tho Parliament house.
The fnneral procession this afternoon was most imposing. Tho coffin
was draped with the Union Jack
whioh belonged to Mr. Rhodes and
whioh he regarded with peculiar veneration, and with the tattered Hag o f
the British Chartered South African
Co., which went through the fight at
Massikeasi, and was carried on tbe
"Long Cecil" gun carriage, used at
the siego of Kimberley, through the
crowded streets to the cathedral. The
streets were lined by troopers who
saluted the passing cortege. The pall
bearers wero Sir John Gordon
Spriggs, the premier of Cape colony,
and six others. The chief mourner
was Ool. Frank Rhodes who walked
alono and bareheaded, and was followed by tho brothers of the deceased
und representatives of Lord Milner,
Ihe British high commissioner, and
Sir Waller Hcaly Hutchison, the govornor and commandoi-in-chiet ofthe
Cape of Good Uope.
All business was suspended during
tha funeral and all public buildings
were draped in mourning. In trout
of the cathedral stood a huge crowd
and the building itself was tilled to
its capaoity. The archbishop and
other clergy received the body at the
poich and there tho opening sentences
of tne burial service were pronounced.
Tho procession passed down the main
transept. The Archbishop made an
address during which he declared that
Mr. Rhodes had faults, of wbich he
probably was as eouseicus as any one,
but nevertheless he was a groat man.
Though not a great church goar, co--
tlnued tho Archbishop, Mi. Rhodes
was essentially religious.

procession   reformed,   a   dead   march

it is only the more pronounced since

CREMATION.
A finely Illustrated pamphlet,   published   by   the Mount  Royal Cemetery
Co.,   ot   Montreal,   has   reached   this
oflice.   It gives in a concise form   tho
history,   practice   and   advantage   of
cremation as a method of disposing oi
the bodies of thoso who  have died, as
well  as a bistoty of the company.   It
seems tliat four years since the lato .1.
H.   Molson   left a legacy of $10,000 lo
the   Cemetery   Co..    for the establishment  of a cre'natorlutn, but as legislation was necessary the bequest  was
declined.   Sir Win. Macdonald in.KiOO
offered   to   supply   tho needed   funds,
and when this was done the   company
applied   for   und   obtained the necessary change in its charter and a crematorium   was  erected.    No   charge is
made for cfomation and the conditions
under which   creiniilion   can   be procured are:     That   the   deceased shall
have   the   right   to   be buried in   the
cemetery ; shall have   expressed   a desire,   which must he reduced to writing, for  cremation;   that there  shall
be a medical ceitiflcate of  death,   and
that    the   permission   of  tbo coroner
shall be obtaineti.     These   rules  arc
essentia!   to   prevent   tbis   method of
disposing of the dead irom being used
in destroying evidence of crimes,as in
the   cases   of   those   who   have  been
poisoned.
Modern cremation, which is now
being received with considerable
fnvoi-, is but thc readoptoin of an
ancient ens'om. It was practised
among the primitive Ari.ins, who had
tho belief that only by means of fire
could the body be tarnsformed into
spirit. The ancient inhabitants ol
Haul and Hritlany burned their
dead. The Scandinavians for many
centories previous to the Ninth century did likewise and the piactice
prevailed among the Slavs until the
Klevouth century. For a time the
practice ��as ibandoned, but iu 1707
Legrand D'Aussy, a .lesuit lather and
a number of the institute of France,
began an agitation in its favor which
had considerable effect. In Italy in
1860 it was adoveated by a large section of tbo per pie of that country.
Garibaldi directed that his body be
given to the llames, but his friends
refused to carry out his wishes and he
was buried. In 1891 the Italian law
was changed so that those who desired
it could have their bodies cremated.
In 1878 Fanee adopted a similar law.
In Kugland the first modern cremations took place in 1885, in Germany
in 1878 and in the United states in
18~li. Now there are crematories In
Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester, and
Working in Great Britain, und a
number in I-iance, Germany, Italy

crated by the outing and the exchange

discussed and these aro of bont&t to
the teacher as thoy are tho results of
actual experience in the school room,
Teachers huve most important functions as they have charge of the education ol the young and at a period
when the character is being formed,
and,if they have tho proper attributes,
the re(ini-��ite know ledge,and love tlieir
work and are endowed with the capacity f.jr itnpaiting lhe knowledge
which they possess to those who ure
studying under them, which Is much
rarer than is generally supposed, their
power ior doing good, though confined to the iour walls of a class
rooin, is sometimes very large.
Earnest able teachers, who make their
profession their lilc work, can bring
cut all the better qualities of those
in trui-t.-tl to their charge, whi'o
pedagogues of the Squeers type, so
uptly described by Dickens, simply
degenerate those whom they endeavoi
to teach. The calling of teacher is u
noble ono, when followed with the
pre p-r spirit and with a sincere dure
to make it so
The teachers assembled at the insti-
tuto, in the main,seemed to be endowed with the proper spirit as they were
evidently animated by a aeaire to
learn from one another, to keep
abreast of thc times and to put themselves on as high a palne an possible.
As these institutes result in eo'nmcli
that is beneficial they should be held
as olten as possible. They serve to
encourage the teachers who attend
them and are certainly of a distinct
advantage to education.

rROIilWTIuN Dlil'MATED.
A   referendum   was taken iu Manitoba on Wednesday to   decide whether
the   prohibitory, liquor  act should or
should not go into force   with the   result that it was  defeated by a considerable majority.    This will settle,  we
believe,   for  a  considerable   time a
vexed   question   which  has   agitated
the  people   of   Manitoba   for  several
yearn, ano a period of quietude should
ensue   on the  part of the advocates of
prohibition.     The" contest  for prohibition   began   when Hugh John Mac-
doin.id was premier.   Ile'promised thc
prohibitionists   it they   would   decide
by   plebiscite  that  tbey desired  prohibition ho would have  passed an act
favorable to them. The plebiscite was
canied  and   in   oue time the legislature,   as   promised,  passed a law- prohibiting the sale of intoxicants.     Tbo
constitmionality    of    tho  act    was
attacked  by   the   liquor interests and
the    case   was   fought   through   the
courts  till     it   reached     the    Privy
council,   which   decided that the act
was constitutional and that the legislature of Manitoba had  power vested
in it to pass such a measure.      By tbe
time this was done Premier Macdonald
had   been   succeeded by Premier Roblin.    Th; latter waa oot so friendly to
the interests of the  prohibitionists  as
'he   former  and   Premier Kohl in decided before the aci should be put into
effect  there   should be a  referendum
and that it should secure 02 per   cont.
of the totil   vote    polled in order  to
carry.   Tho government caused   a bill
embodying     these   provisions   to   be
adopted   hy   the   legislature and   the
referendum was taken   with the result
that proihibition was defeated.
It is a matter of history thai prohibition has been a failure wherever it
has been or is in existence. The
attempts .to enforce its provisions are
evaded and it is claimed there was no
ciminution in druukeness in those
places where it has been in effect.
South Dakota tried prohibition for a
period and so many fueds were engendered by a system of espionage put
into effect by the stronger ��� adovcates
of temperance that it gre?�� to the
dimensions of a great public evil. A
majority became so dissatisded with
thia condition of affairs that the law
was repealed. During the prevalence
of prohibition there seemed to he no
abatement in the drunkeniess, and it
seems impossible to enforce temperance by statute. Tho better way
would be to teach the children the
evils of intemperance in the public
schools.

through, and there is every reason to
bslieve it will, the new company will
continue tho work now being prosecuted with a largely iucreasetl force

being driven, ore was encountered and
there is every indication of thepruseiice
of a largo body ol oro as tho tunnel is

A very big and impoitant strike of
oro was made on tho Monitoi last
Monday. The stiikc w��s made in the
lower levul, No. 4 tunnel, where the
main ore shoot has been developed for
a distance of -'75 ieet on the horizontal. The paystreak shows in the drilt
tbree feet of solid oie with every indication of it opening into a very

A raise has been driven on the ore
shoot from No. 4 to No. ',' tunnel, a
distance of 132 feet, and tho ore wok
found absolutely continuous, from

Pro-
Steps Taken For Formation of a
tective Associatiou.
The annuul meeting of the Teachers'
association w��b brought to 0 close
yeBterday afternoon and In the evening tho visiting teachers tendered a
reception to the staff of the looal
BOhools and their friends in the pailors
of the l'hair hotel. It was a convention tnut was enjoyed by all and the
papers road were of interest and
helpful to these who heard thorn.
On assembling iu the morning
Inspector Wilson asked leave to intio-
duce the subject that had been discussed the previous day and suggested
that the telegram sent regarding a
joint convention with the coast institute scarcely conveyed the views of
the association and might be construed to imply a want ot sympathy with
the coast people. He moved a resolution declaring the sympathy of the
convention with the Provincial institute and appreciation of its offer to
hold its text meeting in the Intoriur.
lie also suggested that Eevelstoke be
named as the place of meeting for the
provincial institute. These resolutions were oarried but his third
motion suggesting names for the
officers of the provincial institute
was negatived by a narrow majority.
Officers were elected for the ensuing
year as follows: Honorary president,
D. Wilson,[of Nelson; piesident, J, S.
Brandon, B. A , Trail; first vice-
president, D. N. McTavish, Bossland ;
second-vice-president, Miss K. Scanlan. Nelson ; third vice-president, D.

A. Sullivan, of Nelson, instead of
reading a formal paper gave an address on the viBit he paid last year to
the National Educational association
at Detroit, which was full of valuable
suggestions to the teacher.
Iupector Wilson followed in an
admirable paper en Tho Recitation.
At tne afternoon session D. S. Tait,
of Rossland, gave a paper on elementary arithmetic and H. A. McTaggart,
of the Rossland High school, on Pupil
and Teacher. Rev. Dr. Wright concluded the regular programme with an
essay on the beauties of Tennyson
which was an excellent guide to a
compreheDBive reading of that poet's
Works. He was accorded a hearty
vote of thanks fcr tlio parer.
After some discussion a resolution
was passed leaving with the executive
"KING LEAR" WHEN A HOY.
A good story is told of John
Maguire the veteran Montana manager, who is known to every theatrical person who has ever visited that
Silver State, as a jovial, wholesoulcd,
prince of uoocl fellows, and a wag of
the flrst water. A few years ago,
MaRuire was managing the Grand
jpeia house in ilutte City. The welt
known tragedian Frederick Warde
was due to appear there in "Kinu
Lear.'' Mr. Warde's advance agent
put in his customary advent of a
week ahead ol his attraction,and aftei
transacting his routo business witn
Mr. Maguiie, was about to depart tor
the next place that Mr. Warde was
booked, when Maguire asked nim for
a cut of 'King Lear." Tbe agent Baid
that he had none, explaining that in
a recent hotel Ure his cut trunk had
Veen cremated and that he did not
have a Biugle cut of "King Lear"
left. Nothing daunted by this state of
afloirs, Maguire said: "I must have
a cut of some kind for that long
article on King Lear" in Sunday's
paper." "Come to think of it" replied the agent, "I havo jut one cut iu
my hotel trunk���but that's Warde as
Hamlet." "Go and get it and 1 will
do the rest," Maguire said seriously.
It duly appeared in the Sunday paper,
and Mr.Warde's consternation may bo
imagined when he saw it, for it road:

A TEARFUL BABY
Wanted to Wiite a Letter.
A man came upon his little girl in
a grevious and tearful oondition, because sho had been restricted in her
allowance of Urape-Nuts. The father
says, "I am little at home and I
hardly understood why the absence of
one particular footl should excite her
urief, but upon inquiry discovered
tbat she had taken such a deoided
fancy to il. that .hi was refusing
meat and almost every other kind of
food.
Since she has been using (Irape-
Nuts a serious oondition of constipation of the bowels has been changed
to a thoroughly normal condition ano
hor rlesh is as solid as a rock.
I quieted ber grief by agreeing to
lot her writo a letter,or 1 would write
if she would tell me what to sa\, so
here it is: '"S'y dear Mr. drape Nuts:
Mamma will not give me all the
(Irape-Nuts I want. Sue says I must
eat some beef, nnd 1 don't like it; i
just like (irape-Nuts better than anything else, with cream tin tbem.
Mamma Used to soak them in water,
but now 1 just eat them dry with
cream on them. If I bail ten dollars
to buy Grape-Nuts with, I would lill
th- big pantry shelf, then ma in ma
would give mo more. 1 am six years
old. With love, and thanking you for
making (irape-Nuts.    D,  L   F.' "
Her father adds: "Right horc I
may gratefully give eretlit to Orape-
Neis, (which has largely taken the
place of rich, Indigestible food in my
own case,) for curing a distressing

A CITY IN FLAMES.
Great Loss of Property in a Seaside
Resoit.
Atlantic City. April 3,���Twelve
hotels and more than a score of small
buildings adjoiiing tho board walk,
which is built along the oieau edge
were aestioyed hy lire today, wbich
swept the beach front for two long
blocks. Ihe less is believed to exceed $750,000. ln this respect tho
conllagration is tbe most disastrous
that has over visited this city.
Tho loss will be only paitly covered by lnsuraite, as the rate of fire
per cont. charged by insurance companies on property here is regarded as
almost prohibitive. Fortunately no
lives were lost, though probably a
dozen persons were injured and burned during tho progress of the fire.
It was reported early today that six
'mon perished in tbo ilames, but the
rumor was without foundation.
The origin of the lire is unknown
but it is suid lo bave been started in
llradley'd bath o>- tho Tarleton.
which adjoins the bath. The city
tonight is guarded by a company of
militia whose services were requested
by the municipal authorities, to aid
the police in the prevention of looting. Some arrest) were made during
the day.
Charles Kelcr who conducted a
drug store on tbe board walk at
Kentucky avenue, estimates his loss
ut $1)0,000 and Victor Freisengor, pro-
pietor of au art store at St. James'
palace and the board walk said his
loss is $f)0.o00. Other losses range
from $5,')00 to $1(1,000. There were
numerous other smaller hootho and
serveral cottages iu the rear of the
board walk which were either partially or entirely destroyed.
The lire was discovered shortly
aftor 0 o'clock this morning aud for
nerHiy five hours the Ilames raged
with such violence as to tbrjaton the
city with destruction.

"I sell him cheap!
YOU can judge the value of an animal and
most articles in commerce by appearance
and price. ��� With Seeds it is different.���Any
S-jcd must be valued by what it wiil grow
and oot by a "cheap" price.
Poor Seeds nre those of uncertain growth
and product���thoy are as valueless as the
broken-down mule. It is extravagant waste
to use tbem. " Cheap" Seeils may give
greater profit to the seller but the user is
the loser.
"GOOD QUALITY" In Seeds Is the
foundation of worth -it is the result
from selecting and Improving strains,
together with care and intelligence In
growing and means success to the user.
Steele-Briggs Seeds
aro known for thoir "Good
Quality"and"Worth." Moro
of them aro sold and used In
Canada than any other kind-
Buy your Seeds from dealers who sell
Steele-Briggs Seeds
and Insist upon having thcin. If you
cannot get tlietn from a local merchant
sond your order direct. Refuse substitutes or "Just as Good." Sond for
catalogue If you have not received it.
