hoff, chief of staff, wus fatally burned. This incident may prove more
serious than appears on the surface.
From the Chinese standpoint it was
impossible to consider the return of
the imperial family as long as the

forces was in actual occupation of
the imperial palace, but a new objection is created   in the removal   of the

Their villages burned and their crops
destroyed.
London, March 18.���The chancellor
of the exchequer, Sir Michael IIicks-
lleuch, rose In the house today at 4 ;10
p. in., amidst rounds of cheers and
commenced the budget statement. His
opening sentence was not promising.
"During the last live years," said
the chancellor of the exchequer, "we
have been invariably able to congratulate the bouse on a general increase
in thu prosperity of the conntry, bift.
the year 1000, especially the last siK
months, shows symptoms of a change.
Our foreign trade during the year cofti
siderably increased, but in value
more than in volume. This has been
mainly derived from the high price of
certain articles, notably coal, from
which the receipts showed a surplus
of ��2,077,000 over last year." lint for
this his estimates would not have
been realized.
Reviewing    the   various   items  of
revenue,     he     mentioned    that    the
revenue from beer was ��40,000,000 less
than tbe estimate,   "Thut  decrease,"j
said     the   clianceellor   of     the     ex-1
chequer," is probably attributable   to
tlie fact that very many beer drinkers
are in Soutli Africa,and also to the decrease in the   spending power  of  the
people owing to the price of coal. Experience has shown that we have practically reached the limit in the profitable taxation of spirits.    The receipts
from the death   duties were ��1,606,000
below   those   of   preceding year,   but
lie had   expectations   for   uext   year.
The prolongation of the war and   the
absence   of   business on the stock exchange wore responsible   for   the   unsatisfactory   yield   from    stamps.    In
noting that the yield from the Income
tax was ��1,1.0,000 above the estimate,
the  chancellor of   the   exchequer   remarked that   in   twelve  years the income on which taxation had been paid
had been   increased by not  less   than
��180,000,000 d fact that he   hoped   the
house would remember when he reached a latter part in his speech.
"The deficit, ��3,:i07,O00, showed
thut they had paid -Li,413,000 out of
the revenue for the cost ot the war.
The total amount provided by the
state last year aggregated the enormous sum of ��198; 310,000.
"As to the national debt," said the
rprise. 1 chancellor of exchequer, 'it stands
��� in painful contrast with last year.
But the funded debt had decreased by
��1,425,000. On April 1st the national
debt stood at .0.870,00(1, an increase
of ��55.000,000 on account of the war.
Turning to the present year,the chancellor of exchequer said that the total
expenditure was ��187,000,000. On the
existing basis it was estimated the
revenue would be ��51,870>O5<0, leaving
a deficit of about -55,000,000.
"How is the deficit to be met,"
asked Sir Michael. "1 will nevei be
responsible for the fatal policy of paying the whole cost of the war out of
loans without putting a reasonable
amount on the taxpayers of the day.
The real difficulty, however, is not so
much the cost of the war in South Africa, us tho operations in China, iib
they will increase our ordinary expenditure, even if the war comes to
an end within thiee or four tnontlis���
(this statement caused cheering from
the Irish members)���or soonei than
the honorable members suppose.
"Our ordinary expenditure would
not permit of additional taxes at pres- i
ent. It tbeiefore becomes necessary
to put our expenditure on a broader
busis. The house has reached a point
when it is necessary to widen Ihe
scope of taxation, but direct tax payers must bear their share of the burden. I propose that two pence shall
be added to tho_ income tux, making
one shilling and two pence on the
pound. The extra two pence will
realize ��3,800,000. There will be no
addition to the wine, beer, spirits or tobacco duties. I am not disposed to impose a customs duty an maim,
factured impoited goods, as suggested
bv Sir Howard Vincent.
"The average eon.umplton of sugar
Sugar  is taxed  in
is ��.a per   head.
every other community in  Europe and
is taxed in the United States.   In this
country tuxes remained on ��ugar long
after   the   institution  of   free   trade.
What I propose is   u protective   duty.
The   effect   of   my   proposals  on the
price i.f sugar is doubtful, as the price
of   sugar   is governed by   the   bounty
system.    The gieat hula of imports of
sugar comes from bounty-giving countries.    Tbe   bounty   system    is thut a
country givjs a bounty on the average
production of sugar within its borders
and at the same time   does  its best to
restrict competition by its own people
by every possible means. The result is
that   there   is   an   enormous   surplus
which hns to   find   a   foreign   market
and   this   country under   the   present
circumstances   is   the    only   market.
Therefore, it is quite conservative,unlets of course,the bounty-giving conn-
trie,   reduce   the urea of their  sugar
products oi lower their own duties on
sugar for   the   benefit   of   their   own
people, both of which   actions   would
mean   the   abolition   of   bounty  systems, that the   result   of the tax,   although at   first the   price   might rise
and consumption   consequently   be re-
dueed, would   be  that there would be
such an   inflow   into   the country   of
bounty   fed   sugar   unable' to go elsewhere that the price might be brought
down.    Again,    I   do not  believe   the
duty will injure membeis using sugar
to anything like the extent feared. Of
Course   provision   would be made   for
imposing a duty on   manufactured articles from foreign   countries   coming
Into competition with the home   article;    I   have endeavored   to  reconcile
the    conflicting     interests.    Nothing
must be done   to ^protect the   British
refiner   to   the   disadvantage   of   the
British consumer.    On the other hand
fair play must be given to the lirilii.li
refiner us compared   with   his   continental trade.    I propose a duty en refined sugai of, four shillings  and   two
pence a hundred weight. A half penny
per pound would be tour shillings and
eight pence, so a   margin of six pence
is left to cover the customs, etc.
"There is, therefore, no reason why
a tax of four shillings and two pence
should increase the present price more
than a half penny pet pound. The
graduated scale of taxation would be
us follows: Refined sugar, which is
polarized at OS and upwards and
which represents two-thirds of total
imports, would pay the full tax. This
will diminish to a minimum of two
shillings per hundred weight on raw
sugar polarized at 70. This scale is
only tentative and I am perfectly
willing to listen to criticism and the
benefit of experience and better
knowledge. Molasses in which are
included the grocery syrups, consumed largely by the poor, pay two shillings per hundred weight and glucose,
of vrbich a great deal bas been heard
lately, and is'used iirthe manufacture
of jams and areated waters, will have
to bear a tax of one shilling and eight
pence. I anticipate a yield of ��5,100,
000 from this tax. The West Indies
will notJbc exempt.
"My   next proposal is a novel   one,
unknown     in   this    country   for    45
years.    It is an export duty of a shilling a ton on coal.    In   aiming to   secure a revenue from coal I am not sacrificing trade.    The   imposition   of   a
shilling,   which   infinitely   less   than
the fluctuations   in price, will   do   no
real   injury to the  coal   trade.    Even
supposing the export of  coal is checked, I am not sure that even that result
will be an   evil.    From tbis   source   I
expect ��2,100,000,makingan aggregate
of ��15,000,000 from taxation.  My final
balance will be, from taxation, a rev,
nue of ��122,200,000; from   no taxation
�����21,055,000���a   total   of     ��143,255,000
pounds.    I propose to reduce   the   expenditure   by   again   suspending   the
sinking   fund   to   ��182,0u2,000     This
shows a deficit of ��80,707,000 to which
must   be   added   ��1,250,000.    For   the
fresh debt 1 have to  borrow.    I   must
ask the house to   give  uie   borrowing
power considerably   in excess  of   this
deficit of ��41,1)00,000.    In order to fin-
ance the exchequer   I   ask   power   to
borrow ��00,000,000   by   means of consols.    As   to   obtaining  contributions
from the   Transvaal,    Sir   David Harbour's reports are not   encouraging at
present.    I   ihink   the house will   see
that the war has brought  the country
to   tbe   verge   of     ruin.    (Opposition
cheers   greeted   this    remark.)    This
cannot   longer   be     considered.    The
small war has cost    tin 1.000,000���double   the   cost   of   the   Crimean   war.
There wus .07,000,000 of the unfounded debt redeemable   within   the next
ten years.    I have tried   to put before
the house a true account   of   tbe   finances at the present time and immediate future.

Victoria, April 18.���Al the government caucus last night it is suid a
stoimy scene was enacted, a number
of members insisting on competition
in railways. Premier Dunsmuir
accused four of bis colleagues ot at ���
tempting to undermine him nrd
threatened to resign. No basis of
agreement wns reached and the caucus
was called again for tomorrow night
when if the government won't conciliate dissatislied factors some startling
developments are loi ked for.
In the house today Mr. Turner said
the government was making arrangements to supply explosives in carloads
to farmers at greatly reduced prices
through the medium of secretaries of
Farmers' Institutes.
A long debate took place on the
champerty bill, indications being that
the measure will pass as the government and principal members of the
opposition favor it. MoPbilllps
spoke two hours opposing it.
Eberts, attorney-general, said if the
bill passed he would offer two amendments providing that judges adjudicate on agreements between cliciitij
and lawyers if necessary and also
that lawyers could not contract themselves out of liability for damages owing to negligence in the conduct of

Rossland, April IS.���The last boring
made by   the   diamond   drill   ou   the
Green Mountain shows tbat it has one
of the largest   ledges in the Trail dis-
tirct.  Recently   till1 diamond drill was
started from tlie surface   and a boring
made   at   an    angle   of   45     degrees.
When the drill had penetrated 200 feet
a   ledge   wus   encountered.    Die   was

FISHERMEN VS. CANNERS.
Have Troubles of Their Own Over
the Price of Salmon.
Vancouver, Ii. C, April 18.���The
fishermen have made a proposition
to the dinners that they receive not
less than 15 cents per fish for the coining season. The banners have considered this offer and formally refused it.
From the opinion expressed by some
of the winners today, it is believed
that the fish themselves will regulate
the price. The canneries interviewed
state that it would uot be fair for
the fishermen to exact any price from
them in view of the fact that the
number of ilsh in the river is an unknown quantity. In fact, the price
may be much lower than 15 cents
and It may be higher.
J. II. Watson, who hns always
championed the interest of the fishermen, states that it is not so much tbe
price pei fish as the quantity the fishermen are limited to per boat. In
the meantime the canneries state thut
they   purpose   to deal   fairly .he
fishermen 1 "t do -*ofe propose to '
dictated to, and are in a beuur position to defend themselves than they
were last year. Immediately preceding the last season's fishing hundreds
of thomands of dollars were advanced
to white fishermen by the canneries,
the United canneries alone advancing
850.000. This certainly gave some of
the more unprincipled white fishermen a decided advantage over the
canneries. This season not one dollar
bus been advanced to a white fisher-
man. On the other hand many of the
Japanese fishermen, to whom money
was advanced last season, were unable to pay it back and have been
practically without work during the
winter. The canneries to retain u bold
on them have again advanced them
sums of money enabling them to start
fishing this season and tide them over
the waiting time.
the ledge is practically 115 feet wide,
making it the widest ore body so far
found in the camp. Tbe Le Roi has
one ore body, now being sloped
from wall to wall, which is 105 feet
wide. The ore in the Green Mountain find curries molybediilt", gold
and copper, It is identical with the
ore found in Hie Giant nnd the management of tlie Green Mountain
tliink that the ledge is an extension
of the one, found in the Giant. The
borings run from 88 to 810 to the
ton. Doubtless rich oie shoots will
be encountered when the ledge is
drifted on. The ore can be readily
concentrated and the find may be regarded us the most important that has j
been made in the camp for several
months.

Ottawa. May 18,��� The railway committee of the commons today resumed
consideration of the Crow's Nest
Southern railway company's application for power to build from the
Crow's Nest mines lo the 1'nited
states boundary, when the minister
of the Interior announced the terms
of the agreement which has been entered into between tbe Ciow's Nest
Coal compuny, the Clow's Nest Southern railway company and the government of Canada, by which the government considers Canadian interests
would be guarded against discrimination ill favor of American   concerns.
The agreement recites the occasion
for tlie contract and stipulates that
neither the coal company by discriminating in charges foi coal and coke,
noi the railway, by discriminating in
rates nor rebates, shall have power to
charge Canadian concerns more for
their coul and coke than is charged
where it is sold outside of   Canada.
Upon the production of evidence of
any violation of the agreement the
governor gencral-in-council is given
power to impose such restiictions and
conditions upon the sale of coke and
coal outside Canada that prices for
such shall not be less than prices
charged Canadian purchasers. Where
this understanding is set at defiance
by coal or railway company, the gov-
ernor-gencral-in-eounei! is given
power to recover 83 per ton for each
ton exported in violation of each bargain, to be recovered by process of
law.    The bill was reported.
The trades union labol bill was almost unanimously rejected by the
banking and commerce committee of
the senate. This is the third time it
has been thrown  out   by   the   senate.

American Nursery Stock Will Now
He Admitted to Canada,
Washington. April 18.���An order
in council has recently been passed by
the Canadian government modifying
the operations of the San Jose Scale
Act, whicli practically prohibited tbe
Importation from the United States
of all kinds of nursery stock. According to a report to tbe state department from Consul Graham at
Winnipeg, tin- order exempts from
the San Jose Act any trees, shrubs,
plants, vines, grafts, cuttings or buds
known as nursery stock from any
country to which the act applies.
All importations of such shrubbery
are permitted to be entered at the customs port of Winnipeg between March
i.'i and May 15 nnd between October 7
and Decembei 7 and ut the customs
port of Vancouver from October 15 to
March 15. Entries are not permitted
at other ports than those mentioned.
The plants must be thoroughly fumigated but the Cwiadian government
assumes no responibllity for any damage resulting.
The general tariff: law Imposes a duty of .'i.'i per cent
on cncli budded or improved
tree and an ad valorem duty of 20
per cent, on shrubbery imported from
the tiiited States. Seedling stock
for grafting and Horists stock In general aie admitted free of duty. Consul Graham suys there is a growing
demand foi nursery stock in Manitoba and the Northwest Territories and
thnt the United States should supply
it in a large measure, notwithstanding tbejtariff us trees grown in oui
northwestern slates are best adapted
to tlie Canadian climate.

Till'. OUINESE COMMISSION.
When ihi' Chinese commission yets
tlirongb with the work of taking evidence in British Columbia and makes
(ts report to the Ottawa authorities
there can no longei be any doubt in
ilic minds of "the powers that be*1
that the people of the west arc ovei-
whelinlngly opposed  to  the Chinese
and desire such legislation enacted as
will result in their complete exclusion
from  On nlry.    So far. wUh few
exceptions, the witnesses examined
have all expressed the belief that the
presence of Chinese in Hritish Columbia is most undesirable. And these
witnesses were not only working men,
lull contractors, professional men and
large employers of labor. The commission is now in session at Nanaimo,
The evidence of Samuel M. Robins,
Superintendent of the New Vancouver
inal company at the latter point was
taken. Mr. Robins said the removal
of the Chinese from the mines alter the
accident in 1SS7 was entirely satisfactory to him. They were an undoubted
danger below: liable lo panic, and it
was certainly in the interests of the
company to have them excluded altogether apart from the question of profits. No Chinaman had set foot in
any of the company's mines since 1M87.
Financial reasons forced the company
to employ them above ground. They
were now face to face with entirely
new conditions in the coal maraet,
whicli greatly reduced the output
from the province, lie referred to
the introduction of oil in California
as fuel. The conditions as far us he
could see would force them to reduce
wages if Chinese were removed, Chinese immigration, he was convinced,
was ^harmful to tho province, and
should be stopped by prohibition or a
prohibitive bead tax. He deplored the
fact that ail labor not defined as skilled is looked upon as a humiliation by
the white population aud by many
with horror. They are ashamed to do
work now being done by Chinese
Assimilation with such a race as
Chinese, which implied marriage,
would mean the luin of any country.
Chines" never pressed for higher
wages. The miners had the late Mr.
Hunsmuir to thank for the exclusion
of Chinese from tlie mines, but the
men made arrangements in their ex
elusion. He always depreciated bring
ing iu outside labor to reduce wages
Men who had offered to work for the
company at lower than the standard
now paid had been refused often. Of
bis own choice he would most emphat
ically rather deal with organized than
unorganized labor. Mr. Robin's evi
deuce is very valuable and uo doubt
will have great weight when the
matter comes to be dealt with by parliament.
THE cost  OF THIRST,
The American lirocer presents the
public with some interesting statistics
as to the growth of the drink habit
in the United States. It does not con-
line itself to the merely intoxicating
methods of moistening the mucous
membrane of man, but deals with all
beverages other than aeiated waters.
Accoiding to the authority named the
people of the 1'nited States spent no
less than 81,388,074,925 in flavoring
their breaths in the year 1000. This
sum was divided as follows:
Alcoholic   drinks 81,059,663,787
Coil'ee       125, 798,530
Tea        37,312.608
Cocoa  11,000,0111)
Total , 81,228,874,925
Tlie great preponderance of alcoholic drinks In the table tloes not mean
that the people consumed more of
such, but that the "nip with a sting
in it" costs a great deal more. It is
calculated that the price paid foi
coffee would furnish 1,257,985,296 gallons, and us titty per cent, of the intoxicating expenditure was for beer the
flgnrea would represent 1,221,500,160
gallons of that article. The (irocer
lias been investigating and shows
that by the per capita ligures for   the
past t��U years tile eousuuiptioli Ui iii
tOXicatlng liquorB is not oil tlie increase. Indeed, the consumption of
spirits fell from 1.48 In 1891 to 1.37
in 1900; wine went from .45 down to
.40. There was a slight increase in
heft', which went from 15.31 to 10,01.
The conclusion is that, notwithstanding the immense total expenditure for intoxicating liquors in the
North American republic, tbe people
only spend 4\. cents a day per capita
in drink, and the tendency is to adopt
the l'.uropeaii-Oerimili-custoiu of using
beer intend of strong drink. It is but
one of several instances tending to
show that the European element In
the United states was changing tht
American Character instead of laing
changed by it,
Till: OUI'.AT STEEL COMBINATION,
The Standard oil combination with
its capital of 8110,000,000 has long
been looked upon ns a business Colossus unequalled ill history as a wealthy
and wealth producing enterprise.
The new steel trust, known as the
1'nited States Steel Corporation, recently formed, has a capital ten tunes
as great us the Standard Oil Trust.
The Standard Oil company bus about
40,(11)0 employees. The new steel corporation has Uiii.lino persons ill its employ, and the dallv payroll is half
a million of dollars. If all these employees nnd their families and dependents were gathered in one place there
would be �� steel corporation metropolis of from .(in..Ull to 1.000,000 inhabitants. To show the enormous development of the steel Indutry it may he
mentioned that three years ago the
entire capitalization of the companies
engaged in Ibis line was 840,000,000.
Today the total capitalization of all
steel industries is not far from 81.-
500,000. Of this the new steel corporation represents more than two thirds
otf-papor, and about til) per cent, in
fact. The steel Colossus embodies ten
gigantic concerns, of which the Carnegie plant is one. and sonic live or six
bundled smaller concerns. The possibility of effecting so vast a combination now established, shows the Increasing power of wealth in the woild
and suggests how entirely the masses
may vet be placed in tile power of the
gigantic trusts of the present and future. In that direction evidently lies
a peril whose magnitude we cun��� as
yet but dimly forsee. ___,,
Reports from Kimberley indicate
that the outlook for th i East Kootenay mines is excellent.

TOT CAUSES NIGHT AL
' One night my In other's baby was
taken with Croup,:' writes Mrs. ,1. C.
Snider, of Crittenden, Ky.,"it, seemed
it would strangle before we could get
a doctor, so we gave it Dr. King's
New Dhoovery, which gave quick relief and permanently cured it. We
always keep it is the house to protect
our nhitdren from Croup and Whooping Cough. It cured me of a chronic
bronchial trouble that no other remedy would relieve.'' Infallible for
Coughs. Colds, Throat and Lung troubles. 50c and 81.00. Trial bottles
free at Canada Drug & Hook Co..
DDKS IT PAY TO BUY CHEAP'.'
A cheap remedy foi coughs and colds
is all right, but you want something
that will relieve and cure the more
severe and dangerous results of throat
and lung troubles What shall you
do'.' Go to a warmer and more regular climate? Yes, if possible: if not
possible for you, then in either case
take the only remedy that has been
introduced in all civilized countries
with success in severe throat and lung
troubles, " Hoschee's Oerman Syrup."
It not only heals and stimulates the
tissues to destroy the germ disease,
but allays inflammation, causes easy
expectoration, gives a good night's
rest, and cures the patient. Try one
bottle. Recommended many years by
all druggists in the world. For sale

All public-spirited citizens will approve of the action of the city council
in determining that the unsightly
verandahs on the business stiects must
be removed.
Everyone will hope that as an out
come of the present situation tlie
opera house will he put in such shape
as to make it woitliy of a city so im
portant as Nelson.
Nelson is fortunate in having the
Methodist conference held here this
year. Our visitors are sure to carry
away with them very favorable impressions of the city.
Ottawa ear conductors aie to be
prevented fiom embracing lady passengers. We hardly know to whicli
of tbe two parties concerned we
should offer oui sympathies.
The city council has very wisely de
cided to insist upon storekeepers keeping the sidewalks free of obstruction
The law in respect to this   matter has
been too long ignored in Nelson.
The city council has acted very properly in deciding to make an investigation mto the condition of the city's
finances befoie authorizing further expenditures for public work. This is a
matter in which it. is essentially an
act of wisdom to "make haste
slowly."
Mr. A. E. McPhillips. junior member for Victoria city in the local legislature, and formerly a staunch supporter of the present government, has
kicked over the traces. More defections may be looked for shortly unless
the government acts witli some show
of decency in dealing with important
questions.	
No doubt an investigation will he
ordered into the causes of the disaster
on the Fraser river by which a number of people lost their lives through a
passenger steamer's boiler exploding.
The accident must have been due to
carelessness of some sort���either faulty
inspection or the employment of un
incompetent engineer.

The Nelson Boat club started the
season of 1001 last night with an enthusiastic general meeting of the
members The sportsmen who compose the organization have felt that
aquatic pastimes have been neglected
in the Queen City of the ICiiotenays
and have made the firm resolve to
bring the sport to the front in a milliner which will assist in   bringing the

for
as the inland center for all water
sports. With a view to attaining
this end and mailing the boat elub a
live organization, a strong committee
was elected and authorized to take
various steps which will tend to make
the club a genuine, live athletic institution.
The ollicers elected last night were
as follows: A. II. Buchanan, president; Captain J. 0. Core, vice-president; .1. W. Ford, secretary; El. W.
Matthews, captain; C. 1!. Winter,
Vice-captain, Messrs. Heaven, Wet-
moie, Thompson, Playford and
Wragge, committee.
The first step in the new programme
was taken by resolving that the club
should become identified with tho
North Pacific Oarsmen, the club
which controls amateur rowing on tbe
Pacific coast. This step places the
Nelson club in touch with the strong
est rowing organizations in the west
and will be of material assistance in
securing competition from outside
points, in addition to which the members of the lo:al club have, by renson
of the club's connection witn the N.
P. ()., a recognized standing wherever
the letter's influence extends.
It was resolved that the committee
should look into the matter of securing for the club a pair of lapstrcak
boats. These would be a marked improvement on the cuiftat present owned by the club, nnd would give the
racing members an opportunity to develop the speed necessary to make a
showing against outside talent.
The old craft, while excellent for
practice purposes, were quite nnsuit-
ed for use against crews trained in
lighter boats. They will still be of
considerable value for the purpose of
training intermediate crews.
.The subscrption for membership
was placed at $5 per annum and the
entrance fee formerly levied has been
done away with. At this, figure the
club will obtain the suppoit of n number of the citizens who may not care
to particpate actively in the pastime
but who are willing to encourage legitimate sport. The committee was
authorized to collect subscriptions
and otherwise promote the interests
of the club.
Alderman Selous having indicated
his intention of retiiing from active
membership in the elub, a resolution
was unanimously carried expressive
of the members' regret at his decision
and. voicing the hope that he would
continue to exercise at l��ast a fatherly
interest in the organization.
A special committee consisting of
Messrs. Wragge, I'ord and Johnston
was appointed to prepare bylaws for
the regulation of the club. These
will be laid befoie the next general
meeting which will take place early
in May.

"the company did not huve much to
go on when the first section of railroad was built. The Rossland and
Slocan districts were unheard of. and
practically the only indication of mineral rcsouiees In the Kootenay was
the Silver King properly which at
that time was only a prospect. The
development since is really remarkable. The only exit to the south at
that time was liy trail to Marcus and

THE GREAT NORTHERN KAIL-
WAV   SVSTKM.
LIKELY   TO   HAVE   EFFECT   01
PLACING NELSON   ON THK
THROUGH ROUTE,
Approaching changes on the Great
Northern system are likely lo have
the effect of'once more placing Nelson
on tho through route to Spokane. This
will mean that the mixed train now
running between Northport and tins
city will be replaced with a solid passenger train as was in operation prior
to tlie opening of tlie Kootenay Valley route. When m Spokane yesterday .lames ,1. Ilill, president of the
(ireai. Northern, announced various
changes which are likely to result ns
stated. The passing of the "cattle
train" on the Nelson >v Pert Bhep-
pard line will be hailed with pleasure
by residents and business men of the
city, who have never ceased to pio-
test against tlie slow service to the
lioundary line. The passenger train
makes the trip in a little over two
hours less than is consumed by the
mixed tiaia at the present time, and
the faster run will enable the morning train to leave this eity that much
later each morning and make the
same running'time to Northport where
connection is made with the regular
passenger train In Spokane. Under
ibis arrangement the morning train
will leave Nelson about 11:10, which is
a much more desirable hour of departure than the present hour.
The Great Northern railroad people
have apparently come to the conclusion that it is sn impossible task to
induce the travelling public to go to
Spokane from Nelson via Kuskonook
and the Nelson & liedlington. For
six months the bait of n fast service
has been held out. but traliic fell considerably below the murk attained
when the through passenger service
direct from Nelson wus in force. The
(V P R. benefited materially by the
change, a considerable amount of travel to Spokane having gone via Kossland and the Red Mountain line since
the Nelson aV Port Shepptlrd service
was reduced to a mixed train. Tbe
(ileal Northern road probably figures
on winning back tbe ground lost by
restoring the old order of things. BuB-
iness between Nelson and Northport
bus, of course, not Buffered because
passengers had uo choice of routes,
but tbey have protested vigorously
from the start against, the slow sei-
vicc and poor accommodation afforded,
and the change will be very welcome
from tbeir standpoint. The Kootenay
Valley run will now have the mixed
trains, if the suggested changes are
put into efi'ect as seems to be likely.
Il will he interesting to note the
effect the improved Schedule between Nelson and Northport will
have on the application for the eastern mails to lie brought into tlie Koo-
Nelson aV liedlington
trains running
from ltoiiners' Perry to Kuskonook it
is quite possible that mail btought
over that road would not arrive beie
as expeditiously as if brought direct
from Spokane to Nelson by the
through passenger service lo be resumed shortly.
