Calgary,March 17.���What will probably be murder was committed at the
Atlautio hotel last uight.    Tbree men
Joe McDonald, George Scouting and i j{ wa8 frightfu'ly cut
a man named Mnellei, partners in the
livery business, bad some liquor and
were quarrelling io the stable of the
hotel when Roy McKenzie, the proprietor of the hotel, came homo. He
told McDonald and Scouting to leave
Mueller with him. McDonald and
Scouting then went into tbe hotel, hut
afterwards learning that Mueller wa��
in the dining room tbey looked in,
and again had some words. McKenzie again requested them to leave and
they started out. They had reached
the door 7;hen an Englishman named
Arthur Simpson, who had also been
drinking, interfered and oi("ored them
out. Scouting turned on Simpson and
after a few words they olinched and
fell to the floor. Immediately afterwards two shots were fired from a 38
calibre revolver. One bullet passed
through Simpson's coat harmlessly,
but the other entered the right side,
passing through the stomach and
emerged at tbe right hip.
Simpson will probably die and in
the ante mortem statement which bas
been taken, be accuses McDonald of
doing tbo shooting McDonald has
been arrested. Scouting immediately
jumped on a horse and lied to the
eoontry and the police have not yet
captured him.

A DETERMINED SUICIDE.
A Man Cuts His Throat and Throws
Himself Under a Train.
Passengers who came in from
Spokane last evening report that a
gruesome suicide ocenrred when the
trains was two and a half miles from
East Spokane. A man deliberately
stepped on the track in front of t")6
engine and was cut to pieces. The
air brakes were applied by tb e engi*
user and the train brought to a standstill. The body had been passed over
by tbe locomotive only as in some
manner after tbat bad been done it
was thrown to one side of tbe track.
ml   mutilated,
A few feet on cne side of tbe track
were found a pool of blood and a
blood stained razor. The neck showed
that the suicide had cut his throat and
was bleeding to death when lhe train
came along,and wishing to terminate
his existence with speed, he jumped
in front of the locomotive. The engineer saw him do this and stopped the
train. The clothing of the unfortunate man was searched, bnt nothing
was found to indicate who he was or
where he came from. The body
was apoarentlj that of labours mau
of about 35 years of age. He had a
light complexion and a red mustache.
No money or valuable were found on
bis clothing, which would lend to thc
conclusion that be was in destitute
circumstances and becoming discouraged put an end to his existence.
Tho coroner was telephoned to and
took charge fof the remains.

DETAILS OF DISASTER.
Methuen's Mounted Rear Guard Became Hopelessly Unnerved.
London, March 18.���Describing the
disaster to General Mothuen tbe Pretoria correspondent ot the Standard
repeats the dotails alroady givon in
Lord Kitchener's despatches, and adds
tbat General Methuen identified tin
Boor advance when it was tbree miles
distant.
The correspondent praises the gallantry of tne Doers who, he says,
charged headless of tho hot fire poured
into tbem. He also contrast the cool
steadiness of tne British infantry supporting tho guns, whom not evon tbe
Uoei charge when almost up to the
muzzles of their rifles could shake,
with the blind panic which unnerved
and stampeded the mounted rear
guards.
After placing the convoys in the
kraal in charge of Major Paris, continues the correspondent, General
Methuen galloped back to tbe guns on
the right. He enoournged bis men by
voice and gesture and became a conspicuous target foi the Boer marksmen, who concentrated their fire on
bim as he rode from point to point.
When Commandant Colliers unmasked a couple of 15 pounders aud
began shelling tho kraal,that position
became hopeless and under the circumstances it would have been nothing short of madness to look for any
favorable issue. The only means of
preventing unavailing loss of life was
surrender.

Liberal Lords Attack Courts j Oood  Reports   Continue to
Martial  In   South Gome From the Paradise
Africa. Group.
London, March 17.���In the House
of Commons today, Sir Henry Campbell liannerman, the Liboial leader,
moved tho appointment of a select
committee to investigate the whole
commercial prosecution of the South
Affrican war, including the contracts
for the purchases of remounts, meat
and forage and the contraots for the
purchases ot remounts, moats and
forage and the contracts for freight
and transportation.
The war secretary, Mr. Broderick,
replied that the government did not
fear an investigation. It was true
that in operations of tho magnitude of
those in South Africa there have heen
shortcomings but tho war offloe as a
right would demand an investigation
at thej proper time. Rut; British
operations in all parts of the world
would be paralyzed if an inquiry
were foroed now. Had the war office
be��� in the condition in which Sir
Campbell-Bannermen left it, the war
could not have been carried on for
two moanths, owing to tho shortage
of guns, ammunition and ail the supplies requisite for a campaign.
The premier, Lord Salisbury, was
called on to defend the government in
tbe House of Lords.owing to a motion
by Earl Spencer (Liberal) demanding
detailed inlormatlons regarding martial Jaw,coin Is martial and executions
in Cape Colony. Lord Coleridge
(Liberal) wbo followed leclared that
martial law was imposed over a vast
area of South Africa where not a shot
had been Hied Bnd where there is no
resistance to government authority.
Lord Salisbury said martial law
was u mere fashion of speech. What
everyone admitted was that it was
necessary to defeat the designs of the
King's enemies in South Africa. Tllis,
the government was determined to do
and ho added, there was plenty of
armed resistance in Cape Colony to
fully justify the application of martial
law.
The admiralty officially announced
tonight that all hope of finding the
Uritish sloop of war, Condor, had
been given up and ordered that her
books be closed and that tho money
due hoi officers and crow to March 17
be paid.
MONTREALS TAKE THE CL1I
Exciting Hockey Game Iletween
Evenly Matched Teams.
Winnipeg, March 17 ���The Montroal hockey team won the final game
for the Stanley cup and hockey championship ol the world, tonight, by a
score of 2 to 1. Tho Montreals were
early in scores, putting the puca
through first in four minutes and
again in eleven minutes. This was
in the first half and ended the Montreal counting. In the secon half llain
sored for the WinnipcgVietorins after
eleven minutes play, but no further
goals were scored by cither teams
The contest wns one of the finest exhibitions of hockey ever seen in Winnipeg and was witnessed by an immense audience. The brilliant rush
by tbo Winnipeg men wus followed by
a brilliant rush by the Montreals.
Repeated shots on goal v ere stopped
by the net keepers,and both teams had
an equal nuinbe of sympathisers.
The Victorias had the puck In Montreal territory nearly all of tho last
half but the wonderful defenso game
put up by the Montreals could not be
broken through. The victors are being
banquctted by the vanquished tonight.

Peterborough, Windermeio District,
March 12 ���A communication bas been
received^from lho deputy postmaster
geucral, OiUwa, to the effect that the
name of Wilmer will bo substituted
for that of Peterborough in the immediate future.
A meeting of the residents of the
Windermere district will be held at
Peterborough on Thursday, the 20th
instant, for the purpose of devising
wayB and means of improving the
mail service between tho C.P.R. main
line and Cranbrook, on the Crow's
Nest Pass railway. A united effort is
to be made to ovsroome tbe misrepresentations of certain pirtiss in regard
thereto, and to counteract the effects
of such misrepresentations and to
place the postal needs and requirements of the Windermete district iu
the tiue light before the postal authorities. Notices to tho abovo effect
signed by Samuel Brewer,.!.P , one of
the pioneers of the camp,are being distributed   throughout the district.
Just why tne Fort Steele stuge line
connecting Peterborough and the
Windermere district generally with
south east Kootenay has been taken
off is simply boyond any reasonable
common sense judgment. Under the
present ariangement one has to ttavel
between two and three additional
days to reach Nolson from Peterborough, whereas with proper stage
connection with tho Crow's Nest Pass
railway, Nelson oan be reached from
here between two and two aud a half
dayB. Under tho present system mining me] coming into S. E. Kootenay
from the United States via II. C.
Southern to Crows' Nest on tlieir way
to Windormere district will havo to go
aroud either via Calgary to Golden or
via Arrow lakes and Revolstoketo Golden, so it can readily be seen by this
how ridiculous it is to isolate tbe
mail system in a growing camp like
this fromS. E. Kootnay, specially
when tho system has been in effect
up to within a few months for tbe
period of some 15 or 10 years.
Regarding the resolution which was
passed at the recent meeting of the
associated boards of trado of eastern
B. 0., wherein that body recommends
the B, C. government to charge tbe
prospector a teo of 812.50 for recording
assessment work and insroad of $100
being tho annual assessment, work to
the value of $80 be accepted, I might
say that I agree with the prosnoctor's
views as expressed in your editorial
of the 5th inst. It would, indeed, bo
a heavy burden for the pospector to
carry und should not bo oonsidered
seriously by anyone having the future
mining welfare of the province at
heart,the prospector should be encouraged and nut hampered ; as it is lie
oertainly has a heavy load to carry in
tho way ol government fees.
The associated boards of trade of
eastern II. C. would do well to roconi-
mond tho following which is really of
vitul interest to the miniug welfare of
B. C.
That it should be compulsory for
any stock oompany or otherwise, to
ciown grant all claims before offering
stock to the public.
Tbe public has already too often
purchased stock from mining companies which havo allowed their
claims to lapse either through neglect
or otherwise. The public purchasing
mining stock should be protected in
every possible form by the provincial
governmont.
Latest reports from tho Paradise
mine arc more lavoraMe than ever.
This wonderful property is owned by
II C. Hammond, of Toronto, who
bunded it from Messrs. John Watson,
John Jeffry and Tom Jones, WatHon
and Jones being the two original discoverers, not Tom Jones as stated in
thc B, C. Mining Record by C, K.
Nicholson. The Paradise and Royal
Stage claims were located by Watson
and Jeffry after whieh Jones was
taken in partnership and the CoBltoOK
tho   third   claim   of   I in-   gronp.  was
staked.     This   proporty ia under  the
foremansbip of J. J. McMilhu.     It is
! understood that S.   S. Fowler,   M.E.,
1 who   visits tlie property occasionally,
directs the development.
Very luvorable reports reach town
occasionally regarding the Red Line
group of mines on McDonald creek,
operated by the MeDonaldCreekMines,
limited.under management of Thomas
Starbird, of Peterborough. The ore
from this property is of a high grade,
and the property is coasiderec one of
the big things of tbo Kootenays.
Practically all of the main properties of tbe district will be developed
this season and the present outlook on
that account  is indeed bright.

LIBERAL ASSOCIATION.
Government Asacd to Make   Rear   of
Postoffice Higher.
A lirgely attended meeting of the
Nelson Liberal association wbb held
last evening in the Hoard of Trade
rooms. The report of the delegates to
the Vancouver convention wiib road by
J. A. McDonald, and a vote of thanks
passed unanimously to the delegates
fur their services.
S. S. Taylor in a short speech proposed Dr. Hall for tbe position of
president 01 the association. Tllis motion was earned unanimously and the
Chair taken by Dr. Hall.
Thero were three vacancies on the
exocutive committee and to till them
tbe following gentlomeu were nominated ail uanimously elected, J. A.
McDonald, J. Rae and E. Feiguson.
A vote of thanks was tendered to
tbo retiring president, J. A. Gibson.
On motion of S. S. Taylor, seconded
by E. Ferguson, the following resolution was brought before tbe association and carricd unanimously: Ro-
solved, Tbat tho association is of
opinion tliat the postotlico building,
if constructed according to present
plans, will bo insufficient in size to
meet adequately present and future
requircmensts, and that it is desirable
that the annex be constructed of the
full height of the front portion of tUe
building, and that if so constructed it
will give the accommodation that such
necessities demand at 11 cost much
less than tho same work could be performed for at a subsequent date. The
change if maoe would add much
to the appearanco of the whole building, particularly in view of the fact
tbat the roof of the annex, according
to present plans, .is lower than linker
street, which is immediately to the
roar, and consequently tbe effect is to
givo tile building, according to present plans, an inferior appearance.
And tiiis association strongly recommends a change iu thu plans to suit
the above suggested addition. And it
is further resolved, that a copy of
this resolution be forwarded to the
honorable the minister of publl c
works and to Mr. (ialliher.
A communication from the Kamloops Liberal association regarding the
appointment of Senator Templeman
wus read and tho secretary instructed
to reply to same, A vote of thanks to
the government for its appreciation
of the interests of British Columbia in
the appointment of Senator Templeman to the cabinet, was carried unanimously, a further oliiuso boing to the
effect that a copy should be forwarded
to tlie premier.

Smith Curtis Scores Government on   Rossland
Prosecutions.
(SPECIAL, TO THE MIXER.)
Victoria, March 17.���Smith Curtis
scored the ministry today on the Ki-ss
land strike matter, being referred to
hy Col. Prior in his speocb. Curtis
charged the government witli interfering to prosecute men for trivial
offences and employing special coun
sel do so, while refusing to prosecute
the rich Lo Roi company for breaking
the law although asked to do so hy
the miners, Hon. I). M. Eberts reply
snid tho men asked him to prosecute
under the Alien act, whieh was a
Dominion statute and penalties collected under it went to tho Dominion
revenue, while in the other case ho
was merely prosecuting under the
criminal law, it having been reported
to him that a lot of men were harassing a poor boy in Rossland. Mr.Curtis
asked If the coi poration of tlie oity of
Rossland was not able tu enforce tho
law within its own boundaries and
Mr. Eberts said tliat ho knew political
capital would be made of it hut eh
wo'ild enforce the law against either
rich or poor man who broke it.
Mr. Curtis urged tlie cancellation
of the '.' per cent, mineral tax aud he
criticized Jos. Manin for declaring in
favor of the principle of excluding
Orintals while voting against Mr.
Helmcken's resolution lo enact the
anti-Mongolian laws. Bon. Mr.Eberts
said tho government would support
Mr. llelmckeu's bill when it wns
reached.
As soon as the debate on the address
was adjourned, the hou,:e rose, tho
government evidently not having the
redistribution bill ready nor tho railway contract. It ia said the latter
has fallen through owing to the
American partners of Hon. Jus. Dunsmuir refusing to part with tlieir interests in the E. aud N. lot $2,000,000
in bonds, insisting on cash.

AN IMPORTANT DEAL.
Tho largest doal ever made in
Lardeau mines was consummated last
week when the. Silver Cup property
was sold for $.10(1,0011 cash. The Silver
Cap has hitherto been owned aud operated by the Sunshine, limited, a subsidiary company of tlie Lillooet,
Fraser River aud Cariboo (Joldfields.
which is generally known as the
Horne-Payne syndicate. The purchasers are J. >T. Young and W, II.
Pool, who are well knownjin the Lardeau through their connection with
tbe Nettie L. mine near Ferguson,
There are eight claims in the group
situated on Silver Cup mountain about
seven miles from Ferguson. The Silver Cup enjoys the distinction of being
ono ol tho earliest strikes in the Lardeau, was tho first mine worked there
and the tiist to ship oro. Ore has been
shipped irom the Silver Cup to the
value of a quarter of a niillon dollars.
The ore is of a bigh grade running ;iu
per cent, lead 200 to !i50 ounces in silver and abont $8 in gold. It is claimed
that the ore in the property has practically heen untouched; as only that
was extracted winch was taken out in
tbe course of development. The new
owners are among the most progressive in the country and they intend to
open up tlio proporty un a large and
comprehensive scale by long tunnel,
etc., to the end that it may become
one of tho largest shippers of the
Kootenays of sivlerl-ead ore.
The purchase of this property for so
large a sum and by men who are practical miners, who will operate it simply for what it will pioduce and not
for what they might be able to make
through stock manipulation, reveals
that ihey must have the utmost confidence in its merits. With them it is a
business venture ont of which they
hope to mako a good profit.
It is also complimentary to the Lardeau district when so good a price is
paid fur a mine and by men who are
thoroughly acquainted and sith nnd
know the capacity of the district.
The extensions of tlie branch line of
tho Canadian Pacific railway into the
district, which affords cheaper and increased facilities for trausortati on
doubless bad consinciable to do with
the sale. Naturally the cost of transporting the ore will tie reduced and
hence lower grade ore can bo marketed and both the tonnage and tlie
profits will be larger. Tho Lardeau
country should make a good record for
itself this season. With a railway,
cheaper transportation for ore sent
out and supplies nnd machinery going in, wilh a smelter located at the
most populous town in the SSGtion,
tho output of ore should bo largely
increased, It is a seotion which has
some very rich mines and within a
year or two it should take rank among
tho divisions as one of lhe larger pro-
duceis of ore.
the time of the great Chicago strikes.
Mr. Altgelo was a man of considerable energy and no small ability, hut
qe directed thein in the wrong direction. Had he moved along different
lines and not been so fiiendly to the
elements of disorder and of anarchy it
is certain that his life would have
been more successful. Taken altogether his career may be regarded as a
failuie, as it was produtive of no
reully good or lasting results.

be any loser on the deal? Of course
everyone knows that to C.P.R. will,
bnt that is not what we are talking
about.
A rather singular incident of the
visit of Piince Henry to Albany occurred when Governor Odell showed
him the sword which it is claimed
Frederick the Great sent to Washington. The tradition concorniug the
sword is that one of tho conditions of
the gift was that it was never to be
drawn from its scabbard except in
defense of the country. Prince Henry
did not know of this nnd in order
to examine the blado unsheathed the
sword. At first it was agreed to say
nothing about tlie incident, but the
story leaked out and caused something
of a sensation. Iconoclasts who have
bad their attention drawn to tbe matter are spoiling the story by declaring
that Frederic!-- the Great never presented a sword to Washington. The
famous Prussian king did however
send his portrait with note sying that
it was a gift from Europe's oldest
sovereign to the United States' bravest
soldier.

WAS A  FA I Lb K K.
Tho stormy career of John ]'. Alt-
geld, of Illinois, was brought to a
sudden termination a few  days since
after ho h.id Indulged in a violent
Bnglophoblo speech. Governor Altgeld
was one of tho curiosities of American
politics, and his actions for a time occupied a large share of public attention. I lo was an extremist and his
tendencies were destructive. He was
a teurer down instead of a builder up
of Institutions. He had a capacity for
severely criticising and showing the
weak places in existing institutions
hut had not the necessary ability for
formulating anything tangible tbat
would take their places and make
them better: In short ho was an
iconoclast and at the same time demagogic in his methods. Jlr. Altgeld will
be chiefly remembered for pardoning
the   Chicago     Ilaymiirket     aiinrheist
assassins,   and for encouraging rebellion against the national authority  at
At last the figures of the census of
Canada for last yenr are in a shape to
make the count complete, says the
Monetary limes, The most striking
feature is the tendency of the population to move from the country to
towns. In four provinces, Ontario,
Mew ISrunswiek, Nova Scotia and
Prince Edward Island, the rural population has declined iu the decade.
Even in Quebec, the increase of the
rural population was only 3,847,
against an increase in the population
was only of the towns of 150,500.
The progress of manufactures contributed lurgoly to this result. Tbe same
is true of the increase of tho town
population of Ontario, which readied
110,754 It the majority of the immigrants settle in tlio rural parts, we
must conclude that the native population scarcely keeps pace with the immigrant, teeing that he rural increase
is not equal iD number to tlio new
corners. In Manitoba, as might be
expected, the increase is mainly in tho
rural population, Leing 711,210, against
29,2?5 increase in the urban population. Those divergencies may be expected to mo on, for some years, even
perhaps in a greater ratio. Tho decrease of the rural population of Ontario is in part due lo the emigration
from tint province to Manitoba.

Gcologicnlly, oro hodies are ordinarily, secondary formations, saya a
mining journal, With somo exceptions, they have accumulated long
after the countiy rook has been formed. While it has been widely recognized that close [relationships exist
between the formation of most ore
bodies and the character of their matrix, the vastly broador generalizations
regarding tbo intimate association of
ore with geological structures have re*
ceivod less attention. The exploitation of ore hodies is often carried on
in accordance with rules which the
limited experience of tho individual
lias pointed out. Where nn operator

It   is   to He Made   Up of   Labor
Reform Representatives.
James Wilks, piesident, of Nelson,
Rupert Hulmer, vice-president, of
Rossland, Alfred Parr, secretary-
treasurer, of Ymir, district association
No. li, of the Western Federation of
Miners, bave issued a call for a convention to bo held in Kamloops on
Monday, April 14th. The object of
tbe conveution is to decide whether
the labor and reform interests shall
tako an aetivo part in politics. Following are extracts from the call
issued :
Thc quostion of political action, being taken on the part of organized
labor with a view to securing u more
substantial and satisfatory representation of labor interests, in the Legislative assembly of our province, and in
the parliament of Canada, is a principle lhat has received careful consideration and thorough discussion at the
hands of local unions alQliated with
out district association.
The decision has beer arrived at,
that before any such step so impoitant
in its nature,and so tar reaching in its
effect, can be taken with any degree
of confidence and propriety.it is absolutely essential that the various labor
unions and reform organizations
throughout the province, should he by
some means brought together in the
closest possible touch, both in sentiment and action.
It is self evident that the only effective means we can adopt, in order to
ascertaiu the views o f those interested, and to reach sound conclusions
upon the subject, is through the
medium of a general provincial convention, at some suitable and centrally located point.
Tne executive officers of the association have received instructions from
the local unions affiliated therewith,
to assume the initiative in this matter, and we therefore do hereby issue
a call foi'a convention (for political
purposes) of delegates from all trades
and labor unions, single tax associations,socialist bodies and other reform
organizations in the province whose
aim is to improve the social condition
of the people of Canada by the ballot.
Tbe basis of representation will be
as follows: Central bodies such as
Trades and Labor councils, district or
provincial associations of Single Tax,
Socialist, Labor, or other reform
bodies, composed of 100 delegates or
less, shall be .entitled to two delegates, and one additional delegate
fot each additional majority fractional
part thereof.
Subordinate or lecal Trades and
Labor unions, Single Tax, Socialist or
other reform organizations with a
membership of 100 members or less,
shall be entitled to one delegate , and
one additional delegate for each additional majority fractional part
thereof.
Two or moro organizations entitled
to representation at this convention,
whose aggregate membership doos not
exceed 100 members, may combine
together and have the right to be represented by one delegate who shall
have but one vote.
The objects of the convention are
as follows:
1. To unite and harmonize all labor
organizations and   reform   bodies in
be province together lor purposes rf
political action,
2. To ad ipt a provincial platform
and promulgate a policy for the guidance^ organized labor aod other reform bodies in future political campaigns.
3. To do any or all other things
which in tbe judgment of the convention will in any way protect or promote the interests of those represented.
By special arrangement with the
C. P. K. Co., we have been able to
securo the fullowing reduced rates for
tho return trip. If fifteen delegates
attend the convention, one and one-
third, (1 1-3) fare will he ehaiged foi
the round trip. If fifty delegates or
more are in attendance a single fare
will be allowed for the round trip.

therefore asued some larger Doys who

with W. W. Bradley, and started to
find the owner. In a short time they
came on a woman searching very
anxiously for something and they informed her where she could find her
missing purse. She lost no time in
going to Mr. Bradley's oflice where
she identified it and left a suitable
reward for the boys. None of the

scarcely able to walk, and then only
���with the greatest difficulty, for I was
in constant pain.
I consulted Dr. Ilarnee, one of the
most prominent physcians here, and
he diagnosed tho case and inquired,
'Do yon drink coffee'.'' ' Yes.' 'Vou
must quit using it nt once,' he replied. I did so and commenced
drinking I'ostum in its place.
Tho swelling in my feet and ankles
and the rheumatic pains subsided
quickly, and during the past IH
months I havo enjoyed most excellent
health, and, although 1 havo passed
tho 08th mile post I have never enjoyed life hotter.

WANTS A WOOD MEASURER.
Editor Miner,���I read in a recent
issue of your circulation, a very appropriate and essential reference,bearing upon the system by which the
wood fuel supply of the city should be
conducted, and fearing that the spark
there so brilliantly struck, has not
ignited the mental hearth of the coun
cil chamber a little more wood may
be in order. I am only one of many
of the citizens who daily recognize
the inconsistency of the evident
discriminating system of dealing out
the two fuel supplies, coal aud wood
that is being permitted. There is a
system oi accuracy, applicable, as
well as demandable, with tho introduction of weights and measures,
weigh coal and measure wood, depart
from this aud dissatisfaction must
arise. If it were a matter of Sam
Slick selling Jim Jones two ricks cf
wood, so represented without mens
urement, acceptance through mutual
confidence in such an individual case
might be regarded rather favorably
but when it comes down that this
principle is applied to Messrs Five
Thousand citizens of Nelson nnd no
such mutuality exists, thon it becomes
a horse of another color, and truly a
rickety system bearing an expression
of more or less tyranny, 'lhe estab
lishing of legal systems in all things
bearing with corporations is to protect tho weak, as well as the stiong
the poor as well as the rich,and it reflects no oredit upon the Stewarts of
any trust, to slumber and give no
bred where the orror of their ways is
pointed out and remedial means easily
at their disposal, S'jrelv if the corporation sees fit to establish and
maintain a system dealing with coal
for the protection ot the consumer
whorein the consistency or justice of
ignoring the necessity of protectingthe
wood consumer fromto sav the least of
it, maladministration, No expense
need bo entailod upon the corporation. Tho oity weigh masetr can be
officially appointed to weigh and
measure fuel and by so bringing the
wood undur tho same   system   as coal
