from South Africa, 'the understanding being that the Department would
be reimbursed for money so expended.
It is not at all likely that Sir Wilfrid Laurier will visit the Yukon this
aeaaon. To do this it would been necessary for him to make two trips
across the continent and he would
scarcely do tba*. The idea was thai
.the Premier, Messrs. Sifton, Patterson and party would leave in July and
in addition to visiting points in Manitoba, Northwest and British Columbia would go straight to Dawson,
but aa Sir Wilfrid will have to go.
with their Royal Highno.ses, the
Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and
York, as far as Victoria, it is likely
. that he ,wul give up his Dawson trip
this season.

.(SPBCIAL TO THE MIMOH.)
V~>tp(fiJi,,B-. C, June 7.���There is a
strong probability of a test case going to the courts here between- the
Oity Co__.il and the School Board,
the Board asked for 830,000 from the
Oity months ago for a new high sehuol1
and according to the School Act this
should have been submitted in the
form of a by-law to the people within
thirty days of the requisition. The
council failed to do so and are now

Vancouver, June 7.���Tlie executive
committee of the fisherman's unions
ol liritisli Columbia representing an
arm'- ot about 14.000 fishermen and
biat pullers have met the executive
of the British Columbia canners combine which practically represents
some 75 salmon canneries, and tbe
latter have made a proposition to the
former to give them 12 cents per fish
for July and 10 thereafter. One million fixe h'nndred thousand cases will
be put up on the different rivers, and
as.there are 12 fish to the ease, the.
fishermen will be able to soil to- the
canners' 81,000,000 worth of fish. This
is what-is known ae the fourth year,
or the year of the big run,whicli takes
place every- fourth year. In 1807 the
year of the last big run the fishermen
were not organized and aocepted seven cents per fish. Since that time
thousands of Japs have gone into the
business and the whites] organized for
their protection with the result thai
tbe have an actual promise from thc
canners of.twice as much as they re
ceived four years ago. The canners'
oiler will be submitted to tbe whole
fishermen as a body. If it is refused
there will likely be another disastrous
strike as the canners say that they
can give no more. While it is freely
stated by some of tbem that in the
case of the white fishermen refusing
to be reasonable they will employ
Japs exclusively-, if necessary, under
military protection the same as last
year. The provincial government has
notified all logging firms that the ant
recently passed prohibiting the ex-
porta*ion of cedar logs to the States
will not become law until all cedar
logs at present out can be disposed of'
at the convenience of the owners. It
is likely that this notice may be interpreted to mean that all contracts
with Washington state firms by Canadian loggers may be carried out thiB
season. As there haB been a great
rush for Canadian logB recently, this
means that many millions of feet
will go over to Uncle Sam's country
before the act becomes law.
There il very little hope expressed
among canners here that the OnlTray
Salmon Combine on Puget Sound will
go through. For a number of years
options have been secured In' all the
canneries, bu they were never taaeh
up. Tbe British Columbia canners
desire tbe Puget Sound lombine as it
would impart a healthier tone to the
market and according to report half
tbe British Columbia pack would be
bought up by Onffray.

A Despatch That Should Bo Accompanied By a Chart.
Ann Arbor, Mich.,[June 7.���An important antiseptic discovery upon
which Drs. Fred G. Vovy and Paul
C. Freer have been working for over a
year in their respective laboratories,
has just been made public. The new
antiseptics are organic hyperoxides.
A water solution of five-one thousandths of one per cent, of active oxygen deerived from the hyperoxides
is fatal to all bactetia.
The hyperoxide which was used for
the experiments is benzo/.lactil and
this as was shown by experience on
nogs, can be taken interimentn in
large doses without poisonous effects.
the discovery may, !t is claimed, lead
to the further discovery of the fundamental causes iu an important field
of medicine and surgery.

Some   Improvements   Made
During the Past Few
Years.
How Nelson's Freight and
Passenger  Service Is
Handled.
Konr years ago the valley of Cottonwood creek from the falls down to
Hums' slaughter house was occupied
utmost exalnslvely by Chinese gardens. A repair shop, a red shed, hy
courtesy called a "Btation," a small
freight Bhed, and a few cabins .were
almost the only break in the fields of
green. There was one line ol track
stretching out westward, and two sidings. Where the present handBorne
station stands was a dam erected by
the imluvtr'ouB Chinks to raise the
water to a height sufficient for irrigating their well tended gardens.
A few fine cedars stood, scattered here
and there and the water rippling over
the pebbly bed of Cottonwood creek
Was the only sound,exce_it the pass-n ���
ger train arriving once a day,or an occasional freight. Baker street curved
oft* to the north opposite the Sherbrooke hotel and down a rooky hill lo
the old station. Two men were employed as car repairers at the "shops"
and any switching tbat was to be done
was managed by the trainmen.
Nothing in Nelaon is a better illustration of the growth of tbe city than
the extent to which the freight business bas grown, and tlie alterations
in the yards and railway premises
that have been made necessary by
the expansion of all lines of trade.
A wharf with several lines of rails to
accommodate thc immense barges
loaded with cava arriving' from the
east has been built far out into the
lake. With freight arriving1 each day
to the tune of sixty carloads, and tlie
shipments of Nelson wholesalers, to
their customers in outtyiti'g towns demanding Bix cars daily, two orews,
one fbr day and the other for night
are kept busy at switching alone; In
the round house and shops over thirty
men are employed at oar repairing,
eh). Thirty others are required to
handle the freight and passenger bus
iness, with twenty more in the general offices. Nine engineers and ten
firemen handle the trains running out
of NelBon, besides the other mm. eta ���
ployed on the trains. The few lone ���
some lines of rails are now multiplied
to twelve through sidings, five private
sidings lor the convenience of certain
large wholesale firms and eighteen
lines ot track. In tending these and
the tracks between bere and Robson
are at present employe. 25 bridgemen
and four section gangs.
A number Of large buildings have
also been erected, including the Station, freight sheds, roundhouses and
repair shops as also a number of
smaller buildings; and all are kept
employed to the full extent of their
capacity.
llaker street has- been continued
past the Sherbrooke and across Cottonwood creek, ending in *��� number
of branching roads tb the various sidings and the station. Where but a
couple of years ago Win. Lung and
All Lee watered their growing crops
with a can pierced with nail boles at
the end of a pole, heavy drays ar~
passing and repassing loaded with all
kinds of merchandise. All day and
night the yard resounds With the puffing of locomotives and tbe varied
noise's of traffic.
Besides tbe rail traffic an iminentu
freight bnsiness by steamer is done,
large shipments being mnde daily
to almost all the lake towns and mining camps in the district. Nelson
from its position, is the natural distributing point of the Kootenays, a
fact which the number of wholesale
firms who have found it advisable tn
lo.'iite here during the last couple of
years amply proves.
Kingston,Ont., June 7.���Miss Small
Fisher, aged 14 years, was instantly
killed In the corset factory it (lanan-
oque today. The unfortunate girl
left here a short time ago and started
to work at the factory only yesterday.
One of thc arms of thc machine which
was above the girl's head fell, crushing her skull.

'That's th' reason   it's   so   precio.s,'

it's so hard   to get.' he says.  'They'se

'Th'   wurruld   is full iv people wear-

The Public School system in Canada is based on the supposition that
every lad if sent to school will turn
out like this one of Mr. Dooley's,
who went to his class every day with
a half a dozen boiled potatoes in an
old newspaper and sawed wood in
thu evenings to pay bis fees. Never
was a greater mistake made. The
boy with the yearning for higher education will get it somehow and put
it to good use; the boy without the
yearning will never know what to do
with it if he bas it.

CONFEDERATION     LIFE      ASS'N.
On another page will be found the
annual report of the Confederation
Life Association, a distinctly Canadian company, that has built up a
most substantial business^ during the
twenty-nine years of its existence.
One of the most gratifying features of
this gratifying lepcit is the statement of the directors thnt the ratio of
expenses to income is the lowest in
the history of the . company. To
bring about such a state of affairs is
the aim of nil insurance companies
and that the Confederation Life is
accomplishing it will be a source of
satisfaction to its policy holders who
reap the benefit of the association's
prosperity. Already one of tbe largest flnanc al institutions of Canada,
tho Confederation Lifo in managed
by a board of directors and staff of
officers whose every effort is devoted
to furthering its interests and increasing its business. Its record is
one calculated to give those seeking
insurance pei feet confidence that in
placing it with the Association they
will be fully safeguarded. The i.i-
teresta of thc Association in Eastern
British Columbia are ably represented by Mr. Melviile Parry.
"The special settlements in the
shares of the Rossland Great Western
and Kootenay Mining Companies,"
says The Colonial Goldfields Gazette
of May 24, "which were supposed lo
have been arranged on Tuesday,
nave produced a crop o' complications
and embarrassments sufficient to
stock a dozen comic operas." Unfortunately they got beyond the comic
stage, and in the case of the B. A.
C, which was directly affected by
them, became intensely melodramatic.
TO CORRESPONDENTS:���We have
two letters on the question
of retail prices, but as there -is
no name attached to either tney cannot be published. And, in any case,
if the floodgates of discusBion were
opened on this subject, hea/en'only
knows where or when the end would
be.���The author of the very clever
acrostic sent in is clever enough _to
understand that its publication is out
of the question.

INTERESTING   STORY

Kg*
Bow a Nelson Salvationist Converted
a Blood Thirsty Indian.
An interestiug story of .-focal inter-
_st appears in the June number of the
McClure's magazine. It is an article
���entitled, "The True Story of Kebutli
the Aleut." aud the scene of the story
is laid in Skagway
<haraoters is Adjutant   McOill of the I
local   corps of   the  Salvation   army.
He was the instrument   of transforming one of the most  notorious   Indian
toughs to be frund in that   district in
(hose pioneer days     The correct name
of the Indian was "Jim"  Hansen and
he was long  regarded with terror   by
peaeably disposed   people.   His   pergonal record, while   free from the evidence of  crime, weie   dark   with the
���suspicion of deeds that had never been
discovered.    Under   the  influence  of
_tbe Salvation   army, which   was then
In charge of Adjutant McOill he   was
converted,     immediately     following
which   he sought out tho captain and
confessed that he, with   ten other  Indians, had   murdered   two   whites���a
man and a woman���on the   Lynn   canal, near Skagway, seme months   before.    He was advised   that it was his
dnty to give himself up to the authorities, and without a protest, he  went
to the United States deputy   marshal]
and told bis story of   the  crime.    He
was   tried   and   found ( guilty.    Thc
judge,    who  sat   on the  case, before
passing sertence of  death, asked   the
iusua!  question,    "Why     sentence ol
'death should not be  passed upon him,
'etc." and was met by the reply, "My
brother, 1 have done my duty, now do
yours,"
This story is one of exceptional circumstances and is well wortli perusal
not only as one of peculiarly local interest but as one of the many splendid
tributes to the work being done by
the Salvation army in every part of
the world.
SHAMUS O'UUIEN.
Chas. Erin Verner, the eminent
Irish comedian will produce thc famous patrotio and heroic ttish comedy, "Hhamus O'Brien" at the opera
house here ou Monday,  June 10th.
There ate few, If any, Irish stories
dealing with the uprising in the
cause of freedom of that strangely
loyal, yet self-assertive, people that
more faithfully portray the Irish
���character than does the play of
"Shauius O'Riien."
In    it   all   of Mr. Vomer's natural
genius as   un   actor, Muger aud   itan-
���  cer, ts   fully   drawn   upon,   and once
again the heio  of a century ago lives
before   the   audience,   und moie than
mind, "is   this   a piece of acting,
is it all a strange reality."
Mr. Verner's company is far above
thc average, and eveiy attention is
paid to the detail ajid "business" of
the piece, forming a correct surrounding to the strong central figure of the
patriotic "Shamus."   This  will  per-

A LUCKY FIND.
What proved to be a more profitable find than gold happened the other day to a traveller from San Francisco, while at lunch in one of the
leading restaurants in Nelson, lie
ordered a portion of Pumpkin pie,
when to his astonishment his appe-
titie, which he had lost fifteen years
ago in Arizona, suddenly returned to
him; with renewed- vigor. The pie
had a very solid texture and a rich
mellow flavor. The cook informs us
that it was made from "The Morse
Pumpkin Flour." None other jnst ns
good.    Insist on "The Morse llrand."

PATCHES.
Why Brown Ones Oome on Facet.
When a woman can get rid ol
brown patches on hci face by changing ber diet it is worth while for other women who care for their complexions to know something of the method.
A lady in Michigan City, Ind.. whi
doei not want her name mentioned,
savs that coffee caused the ba'owr
patches on her face by first giving bei
stomach trouble, then putting hei
nerves out ofjirder. and the result
was shown in her complexion.
She quit coflVe and began Mint
Postum Food Coffee and in less than a
month the stomach trouble disappear
ed ad within two months her complexion cleared up and is now line am:
rosy.
She speaks of it Mr. Knight and
Gideon Hunt, of Westficld. Ind.,"win
have both been improved in health a\
.carina- off coffee and taking in its
place I'ostum Food Coffee, also a .Mr.
and Mrs. Jesse Stanley, of the same
place,w_o were in poor health and
suffered from stomach trouble. Tho\
quit coffee and after using Postum ii
short time the result was natural
sleep, return of appetite, and a gain
in streng-.h as fast as nature will re
built.
She gives the names of a number of
otb. r persons who have been helped
by leaving off coffee and taking Postum Food Coffee.
It (a a safe proposition that if anv
coffee user has stomach or nervous
trouble, or bad complexion, he or she
can get rid of thc tiouble by discontinuing coffee and taking Postum
Food Coffee. Il is eaiy enough to
prove the truth of this by making a
trial. Every first-class

IMPROVING THE JAIL YARD���
Tbe work of beautifying tbe Provincial jail grounds in J>. laon has been
going on for some time. Out of a
rough ravine several large tenaees
have been constructed and the slopes

citv debentures���
Recently the City Council called for
tenders for tbe purchase of the City
debentures and a Toronto firm wbo offered the best terms were understood
to be tbe purchasers, when the act
which was recently passed by tbe local Legislature legalised thc transaction. Since the act was passed there
appears to have arisen some hitch
which has prevented the consummation ot the transaction. As the matter has been hanging fire for some
time neccssaiilv delaying the City
business it is understood tbat the
Mayor has wired the original tenderers for a renewal of their offers.
