FLURRY IN STOCKS.
Active Speculation in Dominion Steel
and Dominion Coal.
Montreal. April 4.���There was another big boom in Dominion Steel on
tho Montreal market today. Iu the
vicinity of 12,000 shares chunged
hands. The stock opened strong at
05 1-4, three points about last night's
closing and steadily sailed upon buying orders to (III 1-3. Then it eased
oB tbe morning board closing with a
sale at 07. In the afternoon there was
a furthei decline to (54 1-4.
No one knows why people nre buying the stook at the price, though
there are plenty ol stories going none
of which appear to havo any substantial backing. The rise is generally
attributed to the act that people bave
got it into their heads that steel is to
duplicate the      poifurmince       of
Dominion ooal. As a matter of fact it
is known that there has been some
realizing by inside iuterests who look
with disfavor upon tne spurt as tending to destroy public confidence in
the future of the stock. It will be
worth all that is being paid for it
some day but not at present.
Dominion coal also did some gymnastics. It opened at 142, three points
advance on yesterday's closing, then
steadily dropped to 181 recovering
to 135. Stories that the company
will be absoibed by the Steel company were current again today but it
bus little foundation as regards immediate action in this direction as tbere
has been for some weeks past.
I Demand From West Indicates Possi-
i bility of Shortasje of Goods.
Toronto,April 4 ���Rradstteet's will
say tomorrow: Only favorable advices come lrom Canadian trade centres. Fine weather has helped at
Montreal, country orders being
liberal and northwestern demand is a
feature. This is also noted at Toronto, which reports the best trado in
years for tbe season, low fares having attracted   buyers.
The eagerness of distiibuters to get
supplies would seem to indicate fear
of a shortage later. Inland navigation will shortly open and shipments
will he heavy. Trade at British
Columbia coast points is better, shipments to the north being large.
Lumber is active and coal shipment-, to San Francisco are heavy. An
increase in the acreages looked for in
wheat in Manitoba. Clearings for the
first quarter are 20 por cent, ahead of
last year, while failures aro 13 per
oent. fewer. For the weak clearings
aggregate (31,888,065, a loss rf 22 per
ceut. from last week and of 10 per
cent, from last year.
Failures for the week number IS
against 22 last week. SO in this week

the fact that it reveals for the first
time under his hand and seal that he
was no mere British imperialist, bnt
that he was essentially a citizen of
the English speaking world.
Mr. Rhodes first will was   made   in
September, 1877, when he was a young
man of 24 years of age.     At tbat time
he   was   only beginning to mass  the ', lai^best   aim.

these latter attributes will likely, in
after life, guide bim to esteem the
performance of public duties as his
Marks for these four
should     be    awarded
ade him a multi-millionaire, not in
dollars but iu pounds sterling. His:
last will was dited July 1, 1SB9, but
the two documents are essentially
alike in sentiment. Thay both embody
in express terms, what was ever the
master thought of this master mind
the necessity for promoting tbe reunion of the English speaking races.
His executors are charged to undertake the duty of acting as trustees for
tho educational endowment fund of
exceptional interest, whioh will provoke the liveliest discussion and excite the keenest interest through both
tbe United States and the British
empire lor both communities share in
tho benefit of Mr. Rhodes' bequest.
Mr. Rhodes was a graduate of Oxford
aud a student at Oriel college to
which, by the way, he has left a
special bequest of ��500,000. He has
made Oxfoid university, in whose
glory the American descendants of its
founders share equally with those
who still inhabit the old country, the
centre of his educational scheme and
he has left a sum which may be
roughly capitalized as representing
8100,00,000 forthe foundation of Anglo-
American scholarships, tenable at
Oxford for three years. To his thinking, tho   noiveisity,   better  than any
somewhat in the lollowing proportions: 4-10 for the first, 1-10 for tne
second, 3-10 for tbe third, aud 2-10
for the fourth.
Maiks for sever.il qualifications
would be awarded independently as
follows: Tbat. is to say, marks for the
Bist qualification by examination, tor
tbo second and third qualifications
respectively by the ballot of fellow
students uf tho candidates and for the
fourth quali lications by the head mas-
tors of the schools aud the result of
the awards, that is to say, tho marks
obtained by each candidate for each
qualification,should bo added together
and the successful student be the one
who received the greatest number of
marks giving him the highest all
round qualification "
His object in laying down these
conditions was to secure the best men
for the world's fight, to bring them
together in one center aud to secure
for them the best education obtainable. He bas undoubtedly succeeded
in changing what he calls the calls
monotony of modern competition.
Of Mr. Rhodes' political will and
testament, it suffices to say that there
stands in its forefront the promotion
of unity uf Engllch speaking races
and   although   it   is   not   laid   down
would receive great help   aud   assistance from such advice.
Regarding the American scholar-1
ships Mr. Rhodes says: Whereas 1
desire to encoorage and foster an appreciation of the advantages which 1
implicitly believe will result from a
union of English speaking peoples
throughout tbe world, and to encourage in the students from the United
States who will benefit by these
scholarships an attachment to the
country from which thoy havo
sprung; but, without I hope withdrawing them or their sympathies
from the land of their adoption or
both.
Tho will provides that the executors
may at their discretion delay establishing any territorial scholarships
until such timo as they may think lit.
but it provides also that the territorial
scholarships once established shall
not lapse upon the admission of the
territory to statehood. Another nro-
vision is that no student shnll be
qualified or disqualified for election to
u scholarship on accourt of race or
religious opinion.
Mr. Rhodes desires that the students
should not patronize any particular
college but distribute themselves
throughout the universities. Trustees
are allowed to suspend or remove any
scholar at their discretion. Mr.
Rhodes expresses the hope lhat the
trustees will arrange an annual dinner an*, reunion for all students and
scholarship graduates, who are able to
attend and invite thereto as gnosis,
"persons who havo shown sympathy
with the views expressed hy rae in my
will."

vivifying oentre of race unity. lt
free from all political complications!
and a residential university with the
old traditions of Oxford, seemed to
him the best fitted for the purpose he
had in view.
Mr. Rhodes,therefore, having selected Oxford as his race centre, from his
love of bis old Alma Mater,bas drawn
up a biond outline of the general con-
dition upoii which such scholarships
should be awarded. The central principle cf his scheme is that every
English speaking colony and every
state and territory in the American
union, should be offered a scholarship of the value of Vt,500 a year tenable for three years at Oxford. By this
means, Mr. Khcdes believed it would
be possible to make Oxford the centre
of the spirit of race unltv, where
students from every part of the
English spoaking world would meet
on common ground in the most famous
ot tbe old universities.
Having decided that jach state or
colonial unit should have one scholarship alloted to it, every year, Mr.
Rhodes' will proceeds to define the
terins upon which these scbolaiships
should be allotted. Mr. Rhodes
always opposed the modern ideas of
awarding an educational prize sulely
for literary attainments. Tbo tendency to award a scholarship solely
for success in passing literary examinations, seemed to him to put a premium on hook works. Hence he has
drawn up a scheme for the election of
students for his scholarships, which
is extremely original and very characteristic of the man. It is as follows:
"In tbe election of a student to a
scholarship regard should be  had   to,
statements in which he has expressed
hi-; political ideas, he has specifically
set forth that the key to the practical
solution of the question is to be fuund
in a copy of the constitution of the
United States.
" What an awful thought it is," he
writes, "that if evcu now wo could
arrange with the present members of
the United States' assembly and our
house of commons, tbe peace of the
world would be secured for all eternity. We could hold a federal parliament five years in Washington and
five years in London. Tho Amerioan
has been taught the lesson of bome
rule, and of tbe success of leaving the
manngomet of tbe looal pump to the
parish beadle. He does not burden
his house of commons ��ith the responsibility of cleansing the parish
drains, Ths present position of the
English house Is ridiculous. You
might as well expect Napoleon to
havo found time to have personally
counted his dirty linen belore he sent
it tu the wash aud to have recounted
it on its return."
BROAD IN SYMPATHIES.
WHALER KATULEN.
Crew Took to Boats   When   She   Sank

St. Thomas, B.W.I., April 4.���The
nine men from tho whaler Kathleen,
of New Bodf >rd, Mass., who reached
the island of Dominica in an open
boat, are now at Antigua.
The previous report that the wife rf
the captain of thc Kathleen was in
the boat tnat reached Dominica is incorrect. Further particulars of the
Loss of the Kathleen arc as follows;
When in lat. 13.07 n , long. 41 w., a
point about 1,100 miles eastwaid of
Barbadoes, three boath from thc Kathleen were pursuing a shoal of whales
on March 17. When at some distance
from tbe ship they noticed that she
was signalling them to come to her
immediate assistance. The three boats
returned towards the Kathleen. It
waa learned that a large whale had
struck the ship 10 feet below the
water lino starting her timbers and
that she was 111 ling rapidly. The
captain of the whaler aud his wife
and those of hor crew who were still
on board hurriedly gathered whatever
property they could and abandoned
the ship in the four boats at 5 p.m.,
half an hour after the whale had
struck her. Threo buats of tbo whaler
Kathleen reached Poruanibuco, Brazil,
about March 20.

TUE SAVING HABIT.
New Yont eity Savings banks
encourage the savings habit nnd incidentally increase their business by
visiting the houses in order to gather
coin. ',The system is a simple one and
ojuld with advantage be conied in this
country. Minature safes are given to
such families as desire them on payment of $2.50 by prospective depositors. Solicitors malie a house-to-
house canvass, install the box, collect
the initial deposit and iisue regular
passbooks. Onco a month a collector
calls, unlocks tlie safe with tile only
instrument with which this can be
done, enters the amount of savings in
the passbook and carries the money
lo the bank. The depositors ean thus
put money on deposit without leaving
the house and with snch an encouragement to thrift so close at hand
the deposits increaso with moro rapidity than il they wero compelled to go
to the bank. Saving is a habit and a
good habit and tbis system does much
in tho way cf encouraging it. In some
fbrailles after one box is put in all the
members who are earning money d��.
sire individual safesnnd in large bouse
holds there are sometimes as many as
half a dozen of those. This shows that
the   saving habit is contagious.
The accumulations in the savings
banks are growing so rapidly in New
York state tbat they are seeking to
extend the scape ot their investments.
The Krura bill, which is now pending
betore tho legislature, if passed, and
there is but little doubt but that it
will, extends the permission heretofore
granted to savings banks to invest
tlieir funds in the bonds of railways
in the state.and those of certain other
specified roads thioughout the country,
to the bonds ot a number of additional railroads.
copper, lead and coal mines. When
the war commenced the output of the
Rand mines was about Ts0.000,00u a
year lt is claimd that thc loss in
the supply of gold due to the war
reached the very large total of $300.-
000,000. It is possible tbat had tbe
development of tho gold fields not
been interrupted by tbe war that a
number of producing mines would
have since been added and the output
would have reached considerably more
than even $200,000,000.

EDITORIAL NOTE?.
���'^In N3W Denver, says iho Ledge, we
used-to talk about babies, Silverton
and other interesting subjects, but
lately all topics not touching on
tourists or smelters have diited into a
knife-blade whisper with signs of
pinching entirely.
It is doubtful if Mr. Martin made
the statement attributed to him, tbat
liBj.would defeat the government after
the redistribution bill bad passed and
appeal to the country, says the Nelson
Economist. If he did, it was done
probably with the intention of inducing several of the Opposition memhers
to rush to the assistance of the gov.
eminent.
Tbe stook in Marconi's wireless
telegraph company whieh a short time
since had no great commercial value,
must be rising rapidly. The company
has sold its jights in tne Units'
Slates to a company with a capital of
80,150.000. The piice paid by the
company is not mentioned,but it must
have been a large sum, as the capital
of the company represents so many
millions of dollars. Marconi, who
was comparatively poor, will soon be
rated us the possessor of many
millions.
Another negro has been burned at
the stake uown iu Georgia, says the
Minneapolis Tribune. Tho redeeming
feature of the affair���if such an affair
can bo said to bave any redeeming
feature���is that the crowd that chained him to an iron stake and piled the
brush around him did not wait to see
him die but disappeared and left the
tlames to do their cruel work in solitude. This argues some touch of finer
feeling on the part of the mob, and a
less rovolting than the idea of tho
crowd remaining to gloat over the
victim's sufferings.

once he has determined on a plan ot
action. No man has received more
abuse, both at bome and abroad, for
t-e position he has taken in regard to
the Boer war than he. ont he gives as
little heed to detractors, exoept to
renew his determination "to hew to
the lino let the chips fall where they
will." There has been no faltering on
bis part since tho war commenced.
Even when he raiso I tho storm ou the
continent by stilting that Germany
and other nations of Europe had
adopted more cruel methods than had
been put into effeot in South Afiicu
during the Franco Prussian war and
at other times, and when oven his
friends wero blaming him for what
they considered intemperate utterances, his reply to the avorso criticisms was that he had nothing to take
baok; that he'had uo regrets for anything he had Bald, This shows his
fibre and his Wcndernl moral strength.
He is the today the strongest and
most prominent figure in Great Britain
and us such will meet with tho reception which a patriotic people like
those ol Oanada love to give to those
whom tbey honor.
GOLD OUTPUT INCREASING.
The output of gold at Johannesburg
shows a fair increaso, lhe products in
February, according: to the reporj. of
the Tranvpial Chamber of Commerce,
having been about $l,0i!0,000i against
about $1,430,000 in .liinunry.iind $800,r
0110 in December. This is at tho rate
of about $20,000,000 a year or about
the same values as were taken out of
all of the mines of llritish Columbia
last year, including the  gold,   silver.
There is a considerable excitement
iu Kaslo and vioinity ovor placer discoveries that have been made on
Cooper oreek, in the Lardo. The
Kooteanian in commenting on the
find says it is enabled to give news of
tho placers "through a most trustworthy source. Coarse gold that
yields 25 cents to the pan has been
found. Gold has been known to exist
there before, but not in such large
quantities, The rush is now ou ; the
creek has been staked for half a mile
and companies are being formed." It
is hoped that the find will not prove a
fiasco like those reported in the
Horsefly oountry.
It has been determined to bring the
body of "Father Pat" to this province
for burial as it, was the scene ot his
good work for many years. Tho most
appropriate place for his burial would
be in the same plot with his wife
whose untimely death took the sun out
of ''Father Pat's sky and saddened
all the years of his life afterwards.
Tbe determination of "Father Pat's"
family to erect a hospital in commemoration of his labor in British Columbia ia one that is in k-eping with his
unselfishness. It will serve better than
n monument to porpetuate the memory
of one in every way worthy ol the
honor.
The people of the Australian com-
mowealth fully feel that they are a
responsible portion of the empire and
that they ure ready to assume whatever obligations it may bring is
obvioun. Recently Mr. Burton, tho
Australian premier said ; "The difficulties cf the empire were difficulties
of Australia." The Australians, he
continued, must be prepared to take a
share in all matters affecting the
integcrily ot the empire, if necessary
sending men and ships abroad to help
in its wars. In conclusion he states
that Australia must sec that her
defences are efficient, and no expense
must be spared for that   purpose.

tn enquire about Church's Cold

He says, "these goods are superior to anything you can use. Alabas-
tine is a cement for tinting and decorating, that permits of recoaling

nasty musr, of washing and scraping

Hitiniis of the free passage of air,
which eminent sanitarians have
written is "essentia!! to a
healthy home." Vou may have
observed the close, stufly smell in a
papered room. This ia because the
p;i per obstructs wall respiration; and
then the mouldy paste used to make
tlie paper stick emits an unhealthy
odour. Especially is this so in
damp weather.
He hands the lady a circular of tints with directions, requesting her to write the Company for I

ing and other ourposes.
Another matter that was gone into

The question of obtaining a further

tbougnt would lead to a better enforcement of the bylaws.

which had existed betweon them and
ot the regret which all experienced at
parting with him, although they were
pleased to nole that he had been
promoted.
Captain Fraser was eompletly taueu
by surprise���as he expressed it himself aftewards, "you could have
knocked me over with a feather''���but
he pulled himself togeth r and cordially thanked the donors lor their
valuable token of good will, and said
he would wear it as long as he lived
and tbat it would be the proudest of
his possessions. The watch has the
Vanguard movement and on the inside
dome the following inscription has
been engraved: "To our captain,
presented bv the officers and crew of

A Nelson man who happens to have

broils to a household in a town in the
Northwest. He has lived bere for
several years and some timo ago his
wife went to live in the town referred
to. He has been writing to her but
there is another women in that town
ol the same name and she received the
letters. A few days ago the person
who received the letters got a telegram directing her tu eome home at

waB time to investigate. Bis wife
had been away on a visit for a short
time last summer and though he was
not inoliDed to be suspicious he
waited to know what there was to be
known. He has therefore written to
this city to learn thn source of these
letters to hiB wife As soon as the
reply reached him no doubt there will

DAILY BLOWS
Brought od Appendicitis.
If a person will continue to put a
little posiun in tbo body eauh day, for
instance like a cup of coffee each
morning when coffee acts as a poison,
and it frequently does, tne result will
be an attack some day in some of the
organs of tho body, 'the little disturbances each day pile up and finally
become a big disturbance.
Many eases of appendicitis have
been brought on by coffee drinking.
It first affects the nerves of the
stomach, and the disorder travels on
down through the bowels and icsults
in Bome kind of bowel trouble, frequently appendicitis.
A lady in Fredonia, N.Y., says:
" During ray school life, bath as a
student and teacher I drank Oiffce
regularly. Most ot tlie time I knew
the coffee was injuring me b-it did
not feel like giving it up. First my
nerves telt the eft'oet and later on constipation developed, ard afttr that
the last year I had a severs altaek of
appendicitis. My doctor and friends
all agreed that these troubles wete,
largely caused by ooffee di Inking.
While 1 was ill some I'ostum was
setpt me hy friends. I supposed it was
cuiTee and hesitated at the first cup,
but when the difference was explained, aii'l I drank ns much as I cared
for, with such good results, 1 concluded Postum was just what I wanted and have used it ever since. lt
greatly ails iligeation, la nourishing
and refreshing.

gellii? well from appendicitis were

If I had known of Postum years
ago I might have been saved a tremendous amount ot Buffering brought on
by coffee rtriuking
Rev. ,     is   one of my converts
to Postum. He suffered greatly fron
dyspepsia nut lias entirely recveieri
since lie quit coffee and began using
Postum.
llr. who suffered a long   while
from nervous troubles says Postum
brought him out when he quit coffee,
and he constantly urges it on his
patients who are coffee drinkers.

LANDSTHING EXCITED.
Copenhagen, April 4.���Thore was
an exciting debate on the Danish
West India islands treaty in the

Congressman Richardson. So far it
