House Passes Second Reading of Crow's
Nest Southern Bill Before Member
for Nelson Riding Is Ready
to Speak.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Victoria, B. C, March 29.���All who
take an interest In the proceedings of
the legislature aro enjoying a good
laugh at the expense of John Houston,
M. P. I\, tonight, and the latter is a
very angry man in consequence.
The fun and Mr. Houston's discomfiture developed out of the second
reading of the Crow's Nest Southern
railway hill. For days past Mr.
Houston had been busy preparing a
speech for the occasion. It was to be
the speech of his life; so, when the
second reading of the bill was called,
all eyes were on the member for Nelson riding.
2 He straightened himself up in his
seat, and, wearing a scowl which boded ill for Mr. Jaffray and his associates, drew from his desk voluminous
notes which he proceeded to peruse
with close attention.
' In the meantime, E. C. Smith, who
moved the second reading of the bill,
was speaking in support of it, and it
was plainly Mr. Houston's intention
to follow Mr. Smith as soon as the
latter had rosumed His seat.
When Mr. Smith had finished his
brief speech, Mr. Houston retained
his seat, though all eyes were directed
upon him because of the fact that he
was known to be the only opponent of
the measure.
He'seemed In a fit of abstraction,
tor, before he had realized what was
going on, the question was put and
carried 1
Then the house roared with   laugh
ter and the tittering in the galleries
continued for some minutes.
Mr. Houston seemed dazed. When
he did realize that he waa not going
to be permitted to explode his thunder, and that the general laugh was
at his expense, he partly raised himself in his seat and shouted out. his
face white with passion: "That's
pretty sharp practice I"
At this there was renewed merriment; and the member for Nelson
w.Dt into tho lobby a very much disgruntled man.
There is a general feeling of jubilation at the passage of the second reading of the bill practically without opposition, |and Mr. Houston is severely
condemned on all sides for his silly
and unpatriotic conduct.
Considerable interest centered in
the second reading of the bill for extending the E. A N. road to the north
end of the island. Hunter, of Cariboo,
who moved it, said he had made an
exploration 22 yeais ago for the government and found 134,000 acres of
arable land north of Alberni, which
with other firming lands of Vauouver
island, was capable of sustaining
thirty thousand of population. Speaking of the great iron deposits on the
island be said he had in his hand are-
port of the geologist of the E. A N.
railway, which stated that he had
found extensive ircn deposits in fourteen different localities, and one near
tbe north of the island with millions
of tons in sight, and the geologist
said he had not been over half of Vancouver island.
Helmeken has a motion on the order
paper setting forth that the establishment of a lead refinery is the surest
way of fostering tho lead mining industry, and that 85 per ton bounty on
pig lead for five years, would be of
great assistance in establishing the
industry.

PHOENIX   RACE TROUBLE
W. H. BULLOCK-WEBSTER PROSECUTING   WHITE   MEN FOR
CREATING A ROW.
THEY   HUSTLED    A     CHINAMAN
OUT OF   TOWN���COMMITTED
FOR TRIAL ON CHARGE.
(SPECIAL, TO THE MIRER.)
Greenwood, Maroh 29.���Before W. H.
Norris, J. P., this evening at Greenwood, John Meagher and M. H. Roy,
hotelkeepers,and Fred Dultulle,miner,
all of Phoenix, were charged that on
January 5th they with other persons
unlawfully assembled at Phoenix
with the common purpose of preventing John L. Parker from taking a
Chinaman or Japanese into the city of
Phoenix and did so conduct themselves when assembled as to cause
persons in the neighborhood of such
assembly to fear on reasonable
grounds that tbe persons so assembled
would disturb the peace  tumultously.
Evidence was brought to show that
the three accused were present on the
evening of day named and took part
in a demonstration against John L.
Parker, mining manager at Phoenix
for tbe Dominion Copper Company,
who endeavored to take into the town
a Chinese servant to work in bis private house. Parker was met as he
drove into Phoenix by a crowd of two
or three hundred men, some of whom
it was deposed barricaded the road.
Both Parker and the Chinaman were
taken outof the buggy and the latter
was hustled down the road back to
Greenwood.
The crown has since had much difficulty in getting evidence outside of
that of two or three persons, but
eventually Chief Constable W. H.
Bullock-Webster, of Nelson, whom the
government instructed to work up
the case succeeded in getting it into
shape for prosecution. DuRelle and
Roy were committed for trial and
Meagher was dismissed. Bail was
fixed at S500, personal and two sureties of ?250. In each case, sureties
were at once forthcoming and Roy
and DuRelle were released.
The provincial police havo also been
making enquiries with a view to prosecution in another case in which it is
alleged that a crowd of men broke
into a Canadian Pacific railway work-
car and took from his bed therein a
Chinese cook, treating him with much
violence and compelling him although
but scantily clothed to proceed as
best he could over a snowy road four
miles to Greenwood. Tho_ Chinaman
states that he was badly used and
lost Sl.io.iluring the time he was being
roughly handled. These cases have
caused much public comment in this
district.

President Wllks of the Miners'
Association Discusses
the Situation.
Would Prove of Great Advantage If Public Interests
Safeguarded.
Mr. .Tames Wllks, president of District Association No. 6, Western Federation of Miners, was interviewed
by a representative of this paper yesterday afternoon upon the present agitation, having for its objeot the establishment of a silver-lead refinery.
Mr. Wilks expressed himself as
follows:
'Speaking as president of our district organization I will say that our
annual convention will take place in
this city on Tuesday, April 2nd, when
doubtless this important question will
be fully and thoroughly discussed
from its every aspect, and in all its
tendencies and bearings, and the public will receive in due course of time
tbe result of our deliberations upon it.
Speaking , personally, I cannot see
where there is room for serious difference of opinion as regards the desirability of having our ores refined in
our own country. That the establishment of lead refineries in Canada
would
BE OF GREAT ADVANTAGE
to the Dominion in general and the
silver-lead bearing districts in particular, and conld uot fail to benefit all
interests involved, is, 1 believe, a
matter of general belief, to which I
cordially agree, always provided that
due care id taken to secure their establishment under such terms and
conditions as will afford a reasonable
guarantee that they will be operated
with proper regard to the interests of
the mining industry, to the protection of which, and the advancement
of the general interests of our prov
ince.it is claimed their establishment
is an absolute necessity.
"I have discussed this question with
several of the leading mine operators
of this district aud am satisfied by
their representations that the silver-
lead industry of British Columbia is
pretty much under the thumb and at
the mercy of the American Smelter
Trust. This,to say the least,is a most
regrettable condition of affairs and
clearly detrimental to the interests of
the people of this part of Canada, who
very largely depend upon the development of the mining industry to bring
about a prosperous condition to all
classes of our community. I am not
going to champion the cause of
THE MINE OWNER,
or make any plea in his behalf, because I am convinced by experience
that he is well able to take care of
himself. I just want to say that I do
not consider this a mine owners'
question in the ordinary sense of that
term; on the contrary, I regard it
as a live, popular issue before the
whole people, who ought to be. and
who doubtless are, vitally interested
in it,' and whose best interests absolutely depend upon a proper solution
and an adequate remedy being found
for the difficulty which confront, us.
If the prime movers of this agitation are out for a refinery in the true
interests of tbe country, and are willing, to adopt such safeguards as will
secure fair treatment rates to the
mine operator and ample protection to
the interests of Canadian labor, then
I am prepared to regard their representations with some degree of favor.
But there is another point which I
regard as the most important matter
in tbe, consideration of this whole
question and it is this: I want to
see a clause in the subsidy act, which
will without any cavilling or doubt
give the government effectual control over and prevent the absorption
of our refinery when established by
the American Smelter Trust. If they
can see tbeir way to agree to this
wise precaution, then 1 am with them
heart and soul in the movement. I
do not wish to be understood as begrudging substantial profits to the
men whose money will be invested in
this enterprise, but I consider   this is
ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL
to the proper protection of the public
interests. But unless the terras and
conditions under which private enterprise shall acquire the right to establish this industry actually constitute government control, then I cannot favor the scheme. I will give you
my reasons for holding this view on
the subject: I quite agree with Mr.
J. Roderick Robertson when he suggests that care should be exercised to
prevent tile refinery from charging exorbitant treatment rates,and I assume
that be agrees with me that similar
provision should be made to protect
the interests of Canadian labor; but
I respectfully submit that we can put
ourselves to the trouble to protect
those interests in the most careful
manner possible, and if the government has no effectual control upon
the refinery, and has no penalty to
Impose other than the withdrawal of
the  bonus   for   non-compliance  with i
those terms, we will find ourselves at
a serious disadvantage and the remedy thus obtained utterly inadequate
to protect the public interests to the
extent which the measure of assistance tbe government will afford the
enterprise would justly entitle us to.
What I mean by that statement in
plain stated terms is this: If the
government has no string to that
boos to prevent it, the absorption of
our refinery by
THE NOTORIOUS TRUST
will be consummated, in my opinion,
just at the moment when the forinei
becomes a dangerous rival to the latter; or when it becomes desirable or
profitable for that giant corporation
to gobble it up. Now I betray no secrets when I say that our organization
is just as anxious as any other institution in Canada to assist in establishing new industries in this country under proper conditions and at the
same time free tbe silver-lead industry from the domination and control
of the smelter trust; therefore, I
make bold to say that if any effective
Bcheme is submitted to our convention that will create this much-to-bc-
desired condition I am confident it
will receive the enthusiastic and undivided Bupport of our whole organization. But I wish to qualify this
statement by saying that any such
scheme thus presented should contain
in itself beyond all doubt the element
of efficacy; otherwise I very much
fear that it will not create a favorable
impression upon our people. I expect
to be told that the restrictions I
would impose will have the tendency
of discouraging capitalists from ill-
vesting their money in the enterprise. In reply I would say that this
argument is not as strong as it sounds
for this reason: So long as private
enterprise would continue to operate
the refinery with proper regard to
ALL INTERESTS INVOLVED
there is absolutely no danger of the
government interfering with them;
because, after all, governments are
pretty much like individuals; at least
in one respect���that is to say, they
are very reluctant indeed, to impose
upon themselves or to accept new and
additional obligations and responsibilities. Furthermore, I contend that
if this industry is to receive public
assistance wc have a right to demand
that it shall be operated under such
conditions as will guarantee a due
and proper observance of the rights
of the people; otherwise no bonus
should be given. Nothing is settled
until it is settled right, and while we
are at this business we should adopt
9ome scheme which would obviate the
necessity of us having to grapple with
the same problem again in a few
years, which we will surely have to
do if the government does "not place a
strong string on that bonus, and place
the refinery beyond the grasp of the
trust. What do I think of the five
dollar per ton bonus proposition?
Well, I should say if the capitalists
who are interested in this subject succeed in getting this amount of subsidy
they should consider themselves exceedingly fortunate indeed and could
well afford a government control
clause to be inserted in their con tract.
Let us suppose a case and go into fig-
mes a little: Suppose the refinery
treated the whole of the production of
lead in British Columbia alone, which
is estimated to be
FIFTEEN THOUSAND TONS'
and it is admitted at the outset that
the cost of construction and equipment of a well-appointed refinery is
approximately 82.0,000���it will be
seen that the amount of subsidies the
government would pay to the refining
company in three years would practically be equal to the cost of building
the refinery and equipping it all ready
for business. And this, of course, is
without making any allowance for
the enormous increase in the production of silver-lead ores which is con
tidently predicted by the friend of
the bonus idea, in which case, of
course, the refining company would
receive a much larger amount in subsidies. Of course I am quite aware
tbat thu amount of capital which
would be employed in the business
when the refinery gets under operation would be a much larger sum than
the actual cost of construction and
equipment of tho refinery itself. Now
the capitalist behind this project undoubtedly have large capital at their
control and if the government Is persuaded to grant a bonus of five dollars
per ton all that is required of them
is to expend a quarter of a million in
the construction of a refinery and secure sufficient silver-lead matte to
enable tbein to refine twenty thousand
tons of lead per annum. They will
then be entitled to draw out of tlie
public strong box the modest sura of
$100,000 per annum in bounties or sub-
sidles.    Now 1 consider this a large
AMOUNT OF ASSISTANCE
indeed���$100,000 per annum would
pay interest at the rate of five per
cent, upon two millions of money.
The refining company would build a
refinery and, it is hoped, make good
profit. In addition to all this, they
would receive from the government a
sufficient -mount per annum to pay
five per cent, interest on the amount
of money actually expended in the
construction of their refinery and also
upon a million ami a quarter, which
they might employ in the enterprise
if they found it necessary on condition that they refine twenty thousand
tone of lead, which is generally believed would not be a difficult matter fur
them to accomplish. The position I
take is this: That if the government
gives any such measure of assistance
to this project they shou'.d retain
effectual control over it and preclude
the possibility of a condition arising
similar to that which exists at the
present time.    What do I think is the

Ottawa, March 211.���Wolves arc reported to bo fierce and plentiful in
Eardley township, in Gatlneau district, and arc carrying off sheep from
farm yards.
Under tlie caption.-A Political Harlequin," the Kossland Miner of Friday last publishes the following as a
leading article:
"If the lecord of Mr. John Houston, the local member from Nelson,
and the editor nnd proprietor of the
Tribune in tbat eity, were not so well
known to the people of Kootenay,
some store might he placed by his utterance and bis attitude in regard to
the railway policy of the province.
As it is, however, no person in this
district will treat anything that he
has to flay,or aDy aetion he may choose
to adopt, either iu his paper or on
the Hour of the house, with uught but
derision and contempt. In politics
in this province he has been "everything hy turns and nothing long"
in the fullest sense of the words. He
has coquetted with every faction and
been true to none. He aspired to be
the counsellor and friend of the Labor
party. He was the loudest shouter
in the province fur the rights of the
workingman, and as soon as he had
succeeded in ohaining, to a paitial
degree, at least, their confidence and
seeming their voice, he hetrayeu
them with a callous unscruprilousuesa
whicli has forever made tlicru his enemies. He posed for a while as a Liberal and then, without warning, transferred his wavering allegiance to the
Conservative parly. He nominated
Mr. MacNelll at a Conservative convention in RervelBtoke and through
his paper, did his utmost to weaken
that gentleman In th_ constituency,
and finally urged him to retire. He
took no stand, publicly, whatsoever
when Mr. McKane jumped into this
breach occasioned by Mr. MaoNelll'a
withdrawal, but gave his secret and
treacherous support to Mr. Calliher.
'As the editor of a newspaper he
for years shrieked wildly for provincial rights and competitive railways,
and posed as an enemy of railway
monopolies and therefore of the C. P.
R. Recently he paid a visit to the
federal capital and Montreal and on
his return he was a changed man.
Since that time lie has heen tho warmest and most uncompromising friend
of the C. P. K. He not only speaks,
writes and votes in favor of giving to
that company everything which it
usks, but he opposes every eoucession,
every attempt at concession, to any
company which can in tho most remote way be regarded as a competitor
of those whom he so faithfully serves.
An we have said, uo attention whatsoever would be paid to anything that
he may have to say, or to anything
that he may do were it not that his
position as a member of the assembly
gives hi in the privilege of blocking
legislation which is in the best interest of the district and of the province
at large, liy his single voice on
Wednesday last tho consideration of
the bill for granting the charter for
the construction of the Hritish Columbia .v. Southern railway was laid
over until next week, thus occasioning a needless and annoying delay.
Mr. Houston knows, or ought to
know, that neither he, nor the company whose tool he is. can prevent the
construction of this line; he knows
that the people of Ihe Kootenays are
demanding in Ihe strongest manner

THE COAST-KOOTENAY LINE.
The staunchest supporters of the
provincial government will hardly be
inclined to view with favor the ad
ministration's policy with respect to
the construction of the Coast-Kootenay line. There is a growing suspicion that tbe government is not inelin
ed 'o deal fairly in the matter, that
it has responded to the beck and call
of certain powerful influences, and
is endeavoring to defer the construe
tion of the road. This suspicion is
strengthened by the circumstance
that the government is calling for
tenders for the construction of the
road and imposing such conditions
as to make it almost a certainty that
no responsible company will submit
a tender. Should it develop that the
government Ib in reality aiming at
the prevention of the construction of
the road, it will be making a fatal
blunder. The people of British Co
lumbia are in no mood for trifling
and will resent in a very effective
fashion any such glaring attempt on
the part of the government to act in
opposition to the will of the people
upon this important   public question
THE LEGISLATURE.
If the Coast-Kootenay road is tied
up for another yeai or two there will
be a great roar go up from the
Iloundary district. And to a man
up a tree it will appear that the roar
is justified.
^<l4MiNi>^^
Very good news indeed is tlie announcement that the Molly Gibson
mine is to resume operations shortly
and that the financial arrangements
of the company have been put on a
good footing.
Thus far the proceedings in tbe lo^
cal legislature have been singularly
devoid of important happenings,
Little legislation of an important
character, with the one exception of
the new School Bill, has been introduced. The report of the visit to Ottawa of the delegation who laid the
claims of the province before the federal authorities was presented, and
proved to be a very interesting little
phamphlet; but inasmuch as nothing
is knowu as yet regarding the reply
of the Ottawa government to those
representations everyone i�� in the
dark as to whether anything of im
portance has been accomplished or
not. The government seems strong
as a government, in tbe sense that it
hus a good majority at its back; but
those who are closely following the
trend of events are convinced that the
government's strength is owing to
some extent to the weakness of the
opposition, rather than from the eir-
cundstance that the cabinet is made
up of able men who have the confidence of the entire country. Nothing is plainer than the fact that Joseph Martin is a millstone around the
neck of the opposition. He is greatly
distrusted in the country and the
people will always fight shy of auy
party with which he is allied. No
doubt if Martin could be induced to
retire, Smith Curtis would be tbe
unanimous choice of the opposition
for the position of leader. He would
prove a much stronger man than Martin and might possibly gather around
him such a following as would prove
a very serious thorn in the flesh of
the government. As for the latter,
they should pray that Mr. Martin remain where ho is. With him identified with the opposition the government is safe.
From all accounts RuBsia is holding
her own in Manchuria pretty well.
She don't say much but saws considerable wood,
There' is a great deal said about
the Steel Trust these days. How
should it be spelt, "steal" or "steel?"
Or are the words synonymous in
this instance?
Mr. Cook iB getting decidedly the
worst of it in tho senate investigation. After it is over lie will probably discover that he has not only
lost a sonatorship but his   reputation.
Great Britain is apparently determined to stick to her old free trade
policy for some time yet. Sit Michael
llicks-lleach, chancellor of tho exchequer, has just made the announcement that the government has no
intention of imposing duties on imports from other countries for the
beuclit of Canada.
No clearer indication that Nelson is
steadily progressing along the patli
which learis tc municipal greatness
could be furnished than in the statement showing the growth of the assessment figures of the city.
Mrs. Nation is still a "sensation"
in the United States. How differently she would be treated in Canada!
She wonld bo locked up for disorderly
conduct in about three minutes, and
tho "sensation" would end right
there.
The government of Manitoba is going to spend 310,000 in testing tho validity of the prohibitory law before
the privy council. It would have
been cheaper to get Carrie Nation to
play an engagement in the Prairie
province.   	
Eastern critics are unanimous in
saying that Madame Albani's singing
this season is quite what might be
expected from one who bears such a
great   reputation.    Nelson   is j
congratulated on the fact that tho famous Canadian prima donna will fill
an engagement in this city.
Most all of the great powers have signified their intention of leaving China
alone, which reminds one of what
happened to the monkey who put his
paw in a narrow necked bottle and
found that he could not withdraw it
without sacrificing all of the prize
he bad grasped. So with the powers.
The difficulty seems to be that they
can't let go.
Toronto is apparently envious of
Carrie Nation's notoriety and proposes to get in and get some herself
by applying the lash to habitual
drunkards, the number of strokes
increasing on each conviction. If the
recommendation made by the grand
jury in this respect is made law, it iB
safe to assume that the lash-weilders
will, in many instances, have to work
overtime. __
A sample of the polished courtesy
which characterizes the utterances of
John Houston, M. P. P., is furnished
in the following, which was wired
from Victoria to the Tribune by that
gentleman : "If Jaffray and his henchmen would go home the Crow's Nest
Southern railway bill would get better treatment than if they continue to
haunt the lobbies and the floor of the
house as they have been doing for tl
past three weeks."

In the eyes of the 80,01)0,000 people
in the United States today the greatest living hero is General Fred Funston, who arrested Aguinaldo. the Filipino insurgent leader. He is now
quite as famous as Admiral Dewey,
who displayed remarkable bravery in
demolishing a fleet of Spanish tubs
which had no ammunition, or Hob-
son, who was kissed by 10,000 giddy
school girls because he sank a vessel so
as to obstruct the entrance to the
harbor of Santiago.

The Proprietors of the "Royal Brand" have been engaged
in the development of tailor-made garments for many years and
��� only after perfection had been attained were the public given an
opportunity to purchase this clothing.
Because we have the Foreman and Designer 1
Who must necessarily possess experience and taste. Needless to say the head of this department in the manufacture of
"Royal Brand" clothing possesses both.
Because we have the Makers 1
Those engaged in putting together "Royal Brand" clothing
are master hands. Much depends on the making and ordinary
tailoring would not hold its shapliness nor give the wear which
is demanded from these garments.

STICK RIGHT TO IT
And Coffee   Will  "Do You" Good and
Brown, if You are  Highly
Organized.
It is remarkable how persistently
men or women will stick to a drug
through thick and thin, even after
they become convinced that tlie drug
is slowly killing them.
This is illustrated thousands of
times every day. A sample ease is
that of F. L. Wolford, of Columbus,
O., who says that all his life, since a
boy when he began drinking coffee,
he has been anything but robust, or
even in what might be termed good
health. He lias tried all sorts of
drugs and tonics, and consulted many
doctors. He quit tobacco, avoided
all intoxicating drinks, stoppeil eating pastry, and took life easy as far
as work was concerned, but tne same
old trouble continued and lie could
not get well.
He stuck to the coil'ee because he
said, "I could not do without it. The
climax came jnst about a year ago.
I went all to pieces with nervous pios-
tration, neurasthenia and insomnia.
The physicians absolutely demanded
tbat I cease drinking coil'ee, and put
me on Postum Food Coffee. I very
much disliked to tliink that 1 must
take something in place of coil'ee, but
ro my suprrise I found that I'ostum
was so delicious and so exactly like
first-class Java coffee in taste, that I
got on with it very well.
After a few days I began to notice
that I craved I'ostum as much 1 had
tho old coffee, and the longer I use
Postum the more satisfied I become
witli it, until toduy 1 look upon Post
um as the 'real thing' and the ordinary coffee as the   'substitute."
I wonld not give one cup of ''ostum
for all the coffee that grows in Central America, not only as a drink,
but for what it has done for my
health. I bave built up again until I
am in better health that I ever was,
and owe the entire praise to Postum.
It is simply a case of leaving off a
poison and using a healthful food
drink, containing powerful elements
of nutrition.
Many among my own friends have
quit coffee and begun using Postum
Food coffee:
Richard Wllhelm, s;3 E. Main St.,
and his wife, both suffered from
dyspepsia, but were cured by quitting
coffee and using   Postum Food Coffee.
James Nenitamp, a grocer on E.
Fulton St., had liver complaint. He
has been greatly benefited by leaving
off coffee and taking_Fostum.
I can give you the names of a number of others wbo bave either been
entirely cured or greatly benelitcd by
(,lie WIS ot Postum.
A FIGHT FOR NELSON-
It is possible that Nelson sportsmen
may have an opportunity of pulling
off a fight here between Burns ami
Goff who came together at Rossland
last week. Local sports have telephoned to Manager Armstrong of the
Rossland Athletic club offering a
purse ot Sr,oo for a 20-round glove eon-
test between Charles Goff and Jimmie
Burns. They wished Mr. Armstrong
to come to Nelson last evening to arrange details, but he said he could not
take the matter up until he had first
consulted tbe directors of the athletic
association, by whom he is still employed. Should he be able to get
leave of absence be will, however,
take up tbe business and arrange the
contest for the Nelson people.
THE B.-P. BOYS���
Further particulars are to hand regarding tlie Nelson hoys who left recently to join the Baden-Powell police
for service in Africa. All the Nelson
men were favorably impressed with
the prospects and none of them, despite rumor to the contrary, were sent
home, although all the other contingents lost one or more men through
the weeding out process. Captain
Beer was summoned to Prince Edward
Island from Ottawa by the news of
the serious illness of his father. Prior
to his departure he was assured by the
officer commanding that bis appointment wbb solely the reward for bis
services in connection with the recruiting of the variouB contingents in
the Kootenays, and not because of
any political inlluenee that was
brought to bear on the militia department. Captain Beer lias been posted
to a different squadron from the one
in whicli the balance of the Nelson
men are sciving.
PERSONAL
E. M, Fort, who lias been Beting as
clerk of the land registry office here,
returned to Victoria yesterday.
A. Bernaid Duckworth, of Ymir,
census commissioner for the -'Json
riding, was in Hie city lust . jl jii

Dr. C. I. Fngun. secretary of me
provincial board of health, was in the
city over night on his way to die

LABOR'S VIEW
OF REFINERY
Continued From First Pa���o.
best solution to the refinery problem?
Well, as I believe it would be a paying proposition I would prefer to see
the provincial government come to
the relief of the situation and erect
the necessary refinery. I believe the
Dornrnion government would rather
grant a bonus to our provincial gov-
er--_""t tb'.'-i to any cnvnnraiion in
Ci .    A refinery ow.    . ore....roll
ed by the government could and would
undoubtedly protect the r_ ...lg industry and all other interests involved, and the people at large would feel
comforted in the fact that the American Smelter trust would be powerless
to exercise its blighting influence upon the progress of our province.
What is my opinion of
MR. HOUSTON'S RESOLUTION
of government ownership of the
Crow's Nest Southern railway? Well,
I will say that I regard it as the correct idea and I hope that it is adopted
by the house; and that the government carries out the implied instructions. I just think the same of that
proposition as I do of the refinery
question���the government should either build it or control it. In my opinion the three most important events
that could occur at the present tinre to
a bring about a prosperous condition
in this province are the establishment
of a lead refinery; the building of the
Crow's Nest Southern, and the Coast-
Kootenay railway! by the government
for the people if possible; but at all
events under such conditions as would
enable the government to keep effectual control over the three enterprises,
or to acquire them by purchase when
the public interests demand that such
a course should be adopted."
U. S. BROKEN PLEDGES.
English paper Has a Scathing Rebuke
For   Uncle Sam.
Loudon, March 30.���The Saturday
Review, discussing the Nicaragua canal controversy in a page article,
says: "There is little hope of the
United States doing anything agree
able to England and if the American
government should persist, in defiance
of its pledges, in attempting to obtain exclusive control of the canal
whose neutrality is of the highest
importance to the whole world, there
would be only one course open. The
rest of tbe world must take steps to
protect itself." The article alludes
to "American aggression" and advocates '"united European representations."
BIG LIVERPOOL RACE.
London, March at).���Tlie Grand National steeplechase of 2500 sovereigns
run at Liverpool today was won by
Mr. Bletsoe'sGrudon. O. J. William's
bay gelding Dramcree, second, and
J. E. Rogeison's Buffalo Bill, third.
The event was decided in a blinding
snow storm.
WHAT'S YOUR   FACE WORTH?
Some times a fortune, but never, if
you have a sallow complexion, a jaundiced look, moth patches and blotches
on tbe skin���all signs of Liver Trou
lbc. But Dr. King's New Life Pills
give Clear Skin, Rosy Cheeks, Rich
Complexion. Only 25 cents at Canada

DOES IT PAY TO  BUY CHEAP?
A cheap remedy for coughs and colds
is all right, but you want something
that will relieve and cure tho 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
villi success in severe throat and lung
troubles, "Boschee's German 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
