AGUINALDO      ADDRESSES      THE
FILIPINOS ANDSAY8COUNTRY
HAS HAD SUFFICIENT.
LET THERE   BE  PEACE. HE CONTINUES,    UNDER   GLORIOUS
BANNER  OF  THE U. S.   .
Manila, April 19.���The following is
Aguinaldo's address to the Filipino
people made public this afternoon:
"I believe I am not in error in presuming that the unhappy fate to
which my adverse circumstances have
led me is not a surprise to those who
have been familiar with the progress of the war. The lessons taught
with full meaning and which have
recently come to my knowledge, suggest with irresistble force that complete termination ot hostilities and
lasting peace are not only desirable,
but solely essential to the welfare of
the Philippine islands.
"The Filipinos have never been dismayed at their weakness nor have
they faltered iu following the path
pointed out by tbeir fortitude and
courage. The time has come, however, in which they find their advance along this path to be impeded
by an irresistible force, which, while
it restrains them, yet enlightens their
minds and opens to them another
course, presenting them the cause of
peace. This cause has been joyfully
embraced by the majority of my fellow countrymen who have already
united around the glorious sovereign
banner of the United States. In this
banner they repose their trust and believe that under its protection the Filipino people will attain all those
promised liberties which they are beginning to enjoy.
"The country has ileelnro.i unmis-
takeubly in favor of peace. So be it,
there has been enough blood, enough
tears and enough desolation. This
wish cannot be ignored by the men
still in arms if they are unlimited by
a desire to serve our noble people
which bus thus clearly manifested its
will. After mature deliberation, I
resolutely pioclaim to the world that
I cannot-refuse to heed the voice of a
people longing for peace nor the lamentations of thousands of families
yearning to see their dear ones enjoy-
iBg;the liberty and promised generosity of the great American nation. By
acknowledging and accepting the sovereignty of the United States throughout the Philippine archipelago as I
now do and without any reservation
whatsoever, I believe that I am serving thee, my beloved countiy. May
happiness be thine."
To signalize these important steps
in the pacification of the country General MiicArthur orders the release on
swearing allegiance to the United
States of 1,000 insurgent prisoners.

interest in the ease of Mrs. Muybriek.
"The worst thing that could happen for Mrs. Maybriek," said he, "is
for some one to resume the agitation
of her case in this country. Her
eventual freedom has been delayed by
the agaitation ovci her. The revival
of the talk bus led to abusive letters
being sent to the English authorities
in this country. Even Queen Victoria

from enthusiasts in Mrs. Maybriek's
ease.
"I have been working on the ease
ever since Mrs. Maybriek was sent to

something for the unfortunate wu-
man. I have exerted myself with every
home secretary iu the British cabinet. I bave no means of knowing
what King Edward thinks hut I do
not believe he will interfere in thu

rule to have nothing to do with capital cases. Mrs. Maybriek is in the

THE MINING   INDUSTRY.
An article from the pen of A. 11.
Hiildicli on "Taxes and The Mining
Industry." which appealed in the
Mining Record, is attracting a very
great deal of attention. The writer
complains that tlie government does
not exercise common sense in dealing
witli tlie industry, and thinks the
tax on tlie output of the mines a
great injustice, llu says: When an
able-bodied man comes rlrst into British Columbia he is promptly taxed 8:1
annually for Ihe privilege of living
here; and another $2 is added for
"road tax,1' although roads ate
chlelly conspicuous by their absence.
Possibly our able-bodied friend may
have a taste for mining-or thinks he
has. much the same thing. He must.
then take his free miner's license,
costing ..",. and his puoK on his back,
is free to examine tbo country. Let
ns suppose lie is so lucky as to find
indications of mineral; lie mus-. stake
his claim in a certain way, (chiefly
by guess.), and record it. for which
lie will pay H-.50, During the following yen he must do S100 worth of
work on the claim, swear that he
lias done so abd record the assessment���$2.50 more. While at the
office he may as well take his new
miners1 license, as the old one will
have about run out, costing ��5, as before. This },'oes on for four or five
years, by which time lie should know
whether his claim is worth anything
or not. hut during this time be must
not use one stick of timber fiom his
claim for mining purposes, without
being taxed for it at the late of 50
cents per cord���surely a high figure.
He may burn, waste, or otherwise
destroy ull bis own timber and that of
half tlie country besides if he likes,
lor nothing, but if he dates to put
Ihe timber to its natuial and legitimate use. he has to pay the government for it. And when at the end uf
the four 01 live years be crown grants
the claim, he is again taxed 95 cents
per.acre, and though he has legally
acquired possession of the land, the
act does not peimit him even to use
the timber on it for mining purposes
without taxing him, (If thiB statement is incorrect I shall be glad to
put r'ght, but the wording of the act
makes no exception. J Well our friend
having probably, during all these
years of hard work, been compelled
to ask bis friend's assistance in money
matters, is now anxious to see what
the mineral be has extracted is worth,
ami to recompense himself and his
partners for their labor to some extent. So he sacks it up and sends it
to the nearest smelter, whicli often
costs 835 to $40 per ton to accomplish.
Tlie smelter compuny samples it,
knocks oil' from it any possible loss
they might sustain by imperfect
Braelting���10 per cent, of the lead, 5
per cent, of tbe silver and gold, and
about I,1, per cent, of tbe copper���
lines the unfortunate owner for nearly
all the remaining mineiuls, and finally charges' him a good round sum
for -smelting. If tlie ore is exceptionally rich, there will be even then
a little profit left to counterbalance
the the cost of mining and other expenses. Then the government steps in
again and remarks, 'Hand over two
per cent, of that to us." Now, why?
What lias the government done during the whole lime to help the mine
owner'.' Nothing at all, but has been
bleeding him for fees cuutinuully,
and even declared that neither he nor
bis men shall woik more than eight
hours a day, whether they want to or
nol. On the other hand, what bus
the prospectoi und mine owner done
for the government? He has showed
up the value of the country, has been
the pioneer settler in the "primeval
forest" and has be��n the means of
many small towns springing up ull
around, all of which contribute heavily to the government through their
own licenses and fees. I would then
ask why in the name of common
sense does not our government encourage the mining industry, instead of
eternally worrying it anil hampering
it witli mischievous laws and lines.
For British Columbia has mineral resources which arc probably unequalled
elsewhere oil the earth, and it is to
Ibose resources that we must look for
our wealth : surely then thu development of them should be u source of
the gicutest anxiety to the government that nothing should be allowed
to binder, but everything to assist it.
Unfortunately, but few members seem
to know what a mine means, they
think apparently it is a spot of land
where you go with a pick and shovel
and get nut bushels of gold coin
ready made; and, consequently, the
wildest suggestion respecting drawing taxes from the mine is promptlv
made law. to the infinite and lasting
harm both to the country itself and
to its mainstay. I lie mining industry.
My sincere hope is that this pluiu
recital of facts may help to amend
0111 condition.
emigration from England. It will be
remembered that a few weeks ago
Mr. Chamberlain went to the Imperial Institute to bless the United Brit
isli Women's Emigration Association,
with which the name of the Hon.
Mrs. Joyce has for years been associated in the settlement of women in
Canada and other parts of the Empire,
But Mr. Chamberlain had not
thought of Canada when lie set himself to pour benedictions upon Mrs.
Joyce's organization. lie is just
now intent, above everything else,
upon South Africa, and a1! his persuasiveness was used to induce the association to send out cultured British
women to the land of the. liners, and
to encourage the British public to
subscribe handsomely to this work.
But even Mr. Chaiubei lain bad not
the last word in Bach a matter us
this, and some influential Indies in
Loudon society have been iired by Mr.
Chamberlain's speech and the stimulus they have received from certain
Canadian quarters to try if something
cannot be done to make the BritiBh
woman less of a rarity in tlie various
Canadian provinces. These ladies
have already got together a group of
willing pioneers: their eyes aie directed to a favored valley in British
Columbia for an initial experiment;
and tlie business quality of tbeir undertaking is shown by their idea that
these women's .settlements should be
iu some way allied with the promising movements which Lady Warwick
and others have started 111 England
for a more active and enlightened
share by British women in the lighter forms of British agriculture. Canadians bave no doubt heard of the
successful women's fanning colleges
and farms inaugurated in various
parts of England, and these institutions would undoubtedly benefit bud
they some such Colonial extensions
as these projected British settlements
over seas would afford. The whole
subject is still in its initial stages,
and it is safe to say that little encouragement can be expected from a colonial oflice whose sole efforts are directed towards promoting emigration
to South Africa. Indeed, Mr. Chamberlain has already done what he
could to direct interest from Canada
to Soutli Africa. But it is not by minister! of stale and government departments that the most successful movements have been started or engineered.

It is understood that the ��� govern

to meet the cost of erecting a national

urgent need of such a building has
long been felt, as the present museum

crowded together, with scarcely room
to move, and the unique collections

HA(I AND BAGGAGE���
A tiny tug steamed into the harbor

The (iooderows have had their Hoat
tied up at various points along the
lake and always seem to be in trouble. The head of the house is now
serving a sentence in the jail for assaulting a neighbor at Crawford bay
recently.
SWAM THE RAPIDS���
A big, shaggy dog called .Tumbo,
owned by one of the boarders ��.t the
Royal hotel, accomplished a feat yesterday that has seldom been achieved,
that of swimming the swift water at
Kootenay Crossing. The dog attempted to cross the river some distance
above the falls but was carried down
stream by the cuirent and went
through the rapids without harm,
[luring much of the time he was iu
the turbulent water the animal was
completely out of sight.
It prohably comes to every thoughtful person at times that there are
"plenty of common, mediocre people
and that if one determines to, he or
she can p>-ess to the front, pass the
crowd, and win position, fame and
gold. It is largely a matter of determination and health. Many a deter-
iinned character with brilliant possibilities, is held back by ill health.
Some timl that bright, keen thoughts
refuse to come to their brains, and
wonder why.
Tlie kind of brain work that makes
successful merchants,lawyeis, dootors,
authors, etc.. etc., makes heavy
draughts on the filling of the minute
nerve cells of the body, said filling
being composed of a greyish sort of
material which must be replaced day
by day, or the brain and oilier parts
of the body will nol act properly.
Coftee is a hidden but powerful
enemy to one's progress in life. Its
subtle, narcotic poison, weakens
heart, interferes with digestion and
has a definite and destructive effect
on the nervous system. People who
are content to load themselves with
impedimenta to progress, who refuse
to supply body with foud and drink
of the kind needed to make up for
the daily disintegration of the nerves
uud tissue, must stand aside in the
race for pre-eminence.
The ones who are properly fed, will
surely win the laurels.
I'ostum Food Coffee furnishes the
U'luten and phosphates of grain needed by Nature to nourish brain and
nerves with food. It does not, narcotize and tear down. It is frequently misjudged on first trial, because of
Improper preparation, but it will be
found to lie a most delicious beverage
if, after boiling commences, il be allowed to continue boiling for 1.1 minutes. This is necessaiy to extiact the
food value and llavor.
There are those who ate entirely
careless as to what goes into the
stomach, but the one who would make
all his movements tend towards
health and possible greatness, cannot
afford to risk adulterated food or
drink or even coffee.
FIRST RIFLE VUACTICE-
The first rille practice will be held
at Fairview range today. Owing to
several minor repairs to the targets
being incomplete shooting will not
commence until about 2 o'clock.
Riiies and ammmliuition may be obtained from the armory from 13 to

A BRIDGE BURNED���
The Boundary country was isolated
from communication by rail yesterday
through the _e.tr_.tion of a bridge by
fire. Early yesterday morning bridge
No. 10, located on ' the Columbia &
Western road about IB miles west of
Robson took fire, presumably from a
spark out of a passing locomotive
smouldering thiough the Dlght, and
the bridge was practically destroyed,
The trestle in question is lifly or
sixty feet in height and upwards of
a hundred feet in length, The facts
of the lire were Communicated to Superintendent Downey at Nelson, who
took prompt steps to repair the damage and reopen the line for trallic. A
special train with materials for rebuilding the trestle was dispatched
and within a couple of hours of the
destruction of the bridge, fully lllll
men were at work on the spot.    Luui-
A PECULIAR CHARARACTER���
Yesterday afternoon the following
despatch was received * from Ainu-
wortb I "Reporter, Miner office,���
Operate air drill in Highland tunnel
at Ainswiirth tonight at 11 o'clock.
(Signed) William Fell." Thus opens
a new chapter in the career of Bill
Fell, miner and eeeentrie, who has
received more or less newspaper notoriety during the last twelve months
by reason of his connection with the
police court. Fell is one of the most
remarkable ehaiaeters in this district.
He is said to be first class miner and
an all round handy man about a mine,
but with an aversion for work which
attacks him strongly at times. The
last time he suffered from ennui a
magistrate gave him six months in the
provincial jail. On the expiration of
his sentence Pill didn't want to quit
the institution. He had been well fed
and looked after and the thought of
going back to work did not attract
him. Within a few days of his release
he was pestering the police to send
him back to jail, and when they refused he put a few drinks of "redeye" under his belt and pretended to
run amuck. 'The police took him in
charge and nc was delighted with the
idea of going back to his old quarters
in the jail. To his disgust, however,
the authorities condemned him to durance vile in the city lockup. These
quarters (lid not suit him and on his
release he went to the Silver King
mine and worked a few shifts. Then
lie came down and sought refuge at
the lockup again. By way of repaying tbe police for a couple of nights'
lodging Fell cleaned out the entire
establishment and cut wood for half a
day. Then he got his check and headed for Ainsworth. where he got the
job at the Highlnder. Another of
Fell's peculiarities is that he craves
to see his name in print, and it is safe
to predict that the perusal of tbis
paragraph will give this remarkable
gentleman more pure pleasuie than
the receipt of his monthly check.
