Eleventh   Year
A THOUSAND
MEN AT WORK
Construction of the Republic-
Grand Forks Road Is Being Pushed.
It
Will Be  Completed and
Ready for Business on
Jan. 1st.
(SPECIAL TO THlil MINER.)
(hand Forks, II.C Sept. 27.���Nearly
one thousand men nro employed on
the construction of tlie liepublic &
Grand Forks railway, connecting this
smelting centre with the well known
Co 1 v11 le reservation mining camp.
Alicad.v ono third of the grading has
been completed and the end of tho
present year will witness the road in
operation. Traeklaying at this end
of the line will bo commenced within
a tortnigbt. This reoord is regarded
us noteworthy, considering that the
lirst sod was not turned until June
5th and that the entire work was not
under contraot until August let���lesi-
than two months ago. The road will
be I.'i miles in length.
The necesnity of establishing railway communication betwoen Urand
Forks and Ropublio has long been
obvious, more especially since the
failure of the various mothoda for
treating tho liepublic ores at homo by
various adaptations of the cyanide
process. Tho Republic mine and
Mountain Lion mills are both closed
down, while a third mill in its unfinished stngo stands as a monument
to the folly of capitalists who disregarded tho opinion oxperts that by
smelting alone could tbo ores of the
camp yield the highest returns at the
minimum of cost. There was tbe
further dictum of the metallurgists,
since oonlirmod by actual experiment, that ideal results could bu se
clued hy blending the silicious ores of
Knpiililie with the sulphide ores of the
Boundary company.
The Granby smelter found the mineral from Republic so desirable tbat
the projeot of a railway between the
two points met with its hearty support; in fact, the management at one
time contemplated building the line
itself, only abandoning the idea when
a charter had been secured by other
parties,
During the week your correspondent
drove over the ronto and was greatly
impressed with the activity prevailing
from one end to the other. Tbo northern tenninns will be situated in the
Ruckle's addition of (Iraud Forks,just
Routh of the city limits. After crossing tlie C. P. R. tracks the railway
following an nir line traverses thc
Kettle river valley soutli to the International boundary, less than four
miles distant. Here it crosses the
Kettle river and passing through the
village of Nelson, "Wash., aBcends thc
west bank of tho river ovor nine miles
to a point one and a half miles north
of Curlew, Wnsh., and recrosses the
Kettle on a or,-foot Howe truss.
Leaving tho river at Curlew on its
southeasterly descent from Canada,tbe
road continues south through the
wide and open valloy of Curlew oreek
to tho nortli ond of Curlow lako.
Thence following thc west shoro of
that beautiful sheet of water the railway begins the nine mile ascent in a
southwesterly direction to the summit which is overcome through a
natural pass. Two miles beyond on
the other slopo the line taps the Tom
Thumb mino before roaehing tbe
Mountain Lion. Then tbe railway
swings round thc mountain from that
point along Ornnite crook to the
Morning Olory and CJnilp going north
up Eureka creek and passing the San
Poll, Bodlc, Hlack Tail, Lone l'ino,
Silver Dollar, Knob Hill and other
well known properties. Tlio Republic
depot will be located on the Ida mineral claim in the old town.
From an engineering standpoint the
ruute has been admirably choson and
woll located. It is the most direct
route that could he secured and
withal Is characterized by tho absence
of any steep grades or sharp curves.
Ini'eed the only heavy work encountered was at Trout lako near the summit whero considerable rock cutting
waB found to be necessary   and   earth
tion work is being rushed in due to
Charles Ferguson, a veteran Spokane
contractor with an experience of over
twenty years in building railways.
Mr. Ferguson (Ferguson Sc Co.) was
awarded the entire oontract on August
1st and subsetpiently ro-let considerable portions of it in small contracts,
the largest being soctionB not exceeding four miles long. Ily adopting
this method it was found that better
and quicker results could be achieved.
The grading from (Irand Forks to the
International boundary has beeu completed ; likewise tbe eleven miles separating Nelson, Wash., from Curlew,
Wash., with tho exception ot two or
three gapB aggregating four or five
miles, Good progress is being mado
on tbe rock work on each sido of the
summit.
Tho dominating spirit of this enterprise is Tracy VV. Holland, of Grand
Forks. Mr. Holland was the first to
perceive tho oommercial possibilities
of a railway between the Amerioan
camp and the Canadian smeltiug centre and lo its accomplishment, soon
to be realized, he has devoted bis
time and energies with rare singleness of purpose during the past fourteen months. To arrange the preliminaries was no easy task. In August,
1900, he obtained from the British
Columbia legislature after a hard teg-
islative light and by a majority of one
vote, a charter authorizing the construction of a railway from Orand
Forks to the international bonndary.
There yet remained to be secured the
authority for building the American
section betwoen the frontier and Republic. As the Colvillo Indian reservation is administered by the United
States government, Mr. Holland found
it necessary to pay half a dozen visits
to Washington. Although the obstacles loaned insuperable, Mr. Holland
with grim and praiseworthy determination stuck to his task. Ho had to
overcome various objections and provide guarantees tbat tbe existing
rights of tbe Indians would be safeguarded and that ample compensation
for traversing Indian allotments
would be allowed. The zeal of the interior and Indian departments for the
welfaro of its dusky world could not
be more scrupulous; and one by one
objection after objootion was ovei-
come, and tin ally tho order authorizing the uuilding of the railway was
signed by E. A. Hitcbcuok, seeretary
of the interior. At this writing every
Indian claim for damages bas been
adjusted and paid for, and that, too,
at the appruisement of officials of the
United States government. After tbe
organization of the Republic Sc Orand
Forks railway company, Mr. Holland
became its president and general manager. His eastern associates, who
raised the capital for building the
road, include Hon. J. E. Stratton,
provincial secretary of Ontario; F. M.
Holland, general manager of the
Dominion Permanent Loan Co., and
T. P. Coffey, manager of the Trust &
Guarantee Co., Toronto.
The railway will be in operation by
New Year, at the latest. It bas entered into a contract with the Republic mine owners for the carnage of
ure to the Granby smelter at Orand
Forks. Aocording to contract, the
freight and treatment rate must not
exceed 80.50 per too. At the outset a
tonnage of 500 tons daily is expected.
Within a yoar the tonnage will likely
be doubled as railway faciltics will
tend to stimulate development work.
A large subsidiary tonnage will be
obtained from various properties contiguous to tbo railway at various
places, such as Lambert creek, Lafleur
mountain, etc.
A MANIAC'S FRIGHTFUL DEED.
Cleveland, Ohio., Sept. _7.���The
small town of Little York station on
the Akron, Bedford & Cleveland rail
way, 15 miles south of this city, was
the scene of a terrible tragedy oarly
today. Mrs. Perry Curtis, the wifo of
a farmer, 38 years of age, drowned
her four small children in a well and
then committed suicide by jumping in
herself. Ber husband, Perry Curtis,
was in Cleveland and knew nothing
of the tragedy until he rend the account of it in the newspapers. Mrs.
Curtis was released from the Massil-
lon insane asylum as cured and it
was thought when she was still suffering a relapse that she committed tbe
terriole deed. The body of Harold,
the oldest boy, was terribly bruised.
He had evidently made a desperate
struggle to save himself.

miles of snow covered wheat farms
and prairie in an air that had tho
chill of winter and when they left
their train for the reception at Retina, the capitol of the Northwest Territories, were muffled in furs. Thoir
special train left the proivnee of Manitoba during the night and swung into

presented to him, the Duke said in
part: "Contrasting the froe, healthy
and use.'ul lifo which is found in the
country with the narrow and too of ten
unwholesome existence of thousands
in our great cities at home, one cannot help wishing that the prospects
here offered were more widely known
and more freely taken advantage of."
Service medals were presented to 25
men who had fought in South Africa,
and as the line filed past the Duke uf
Roxborougb and Viscount Crichton,
recognized in Sergeant Major Church,
of the Mounted Police, an old soldier
and friend of the Royal Horse OuardB.
As he handed Church his medal the
Duke of Cornwall congratulated hnn
on his long service.
The party lunched nt Government
house, and at 3 o'olook drove back to
the train, At the station the Duke
called Sergeant Richardson from the
ranks of the Mounted Police and congratulated him on winning tho Victoria Cross In South Africa. Richardson served with the Strathcona
horse, and rescued a wounded comrade under heavy fire. Tho Duke
also praised the Mounted Pulico on
tbeir efficiency aud excellent work.
The town of Moosejaw was reached at
5 o'clock and the Royal special inailii
a brief stay. The city formally welcomed tho Duke and Duchess and the
school children sang patriotic songs.
A stop of several hours will be made
touioriow at Calgary.

Britain Accused of Violating
tlie Rules of Civilized
Warfare.
New York, Sept. 27.���Chas. D.
Pierce, representative iu the United
States of Orange Free .State, has received a copy of the appeal made by
the Boers to tho administration in-
eouncii of tbo permanent eourt of arbitration at The Hngno. Tho appeal
whioh is dated, The Hague, Sept. 10,
aays in part: Now that this war has
gone on for nearly two years without
any prospects of an end thereto,except
in the way only recently acknowledged as being the most cllica-
cions, and at the same time the most
equitable, means of deciding international differences, to-wit: Submission to arbitration, the desirability
mutually for euch a peaceful termination cannot but become more and
more acknowledged. The statos represented by tiie undersigned, therefore, consider that thoy should repeal
the proposal already made by them before the war, but rejected by England,
namely, to submit to arbitration the
settlement of differences whioh eaue
rise to the wai ; in this way, particu
larly, however, in view of the question whether England is right in
alleging tbat action was taken by the
republics which had for its object the
suppression of the English element
and its expulsion from South Africa,
and generally, whether the repntlios
have made themselves guilty of any
act which, according to inlernation
ally recognized principles, would give
England the right to deprive them of
thoir independence. The undersigned
moreover, allege that England already, at the outbreak of the war,
commenced and has ever since continued to act in contravention of the
rules of war between civilized powers
generally, aud also by England
herself, acknowledged, and as solemnly confirmed by The Hague convention
of 20th July, 1800, concerning the
laws and usages of war by land, and
more particularly in contravention of
foreign articles of said rules, to wit:
4, 5, 7, 14, 15, 10, Ed. 3 (and thereof
the following subsections C, D, E,
F, G,) 25, 38, 32, 44, 45, lli, 47, 50, 58,
53, and 55, whilst England has more*
ovei quite recently by proclamation
issued by Field Marshal Lord Kitchener at Pretoria, and dated the 5th
day of August, 1901, virtually notilied
that she intends shortly to tako aotion
in contravention of article 20 also.
The governments of states represented by the undersigned are fully
prepared as soon as an opportunity
thereto shall be afforded them to substantiate tbe allegations herein made
by setting forth and proving lie particular facts to which they refer.
Since England sees lit to deny this
continual volution of the laws of war
fare, the states represented by the
undersigned consider that they may in
regard to this difference suck a decision the of permanent court to abntra-
tion. Should the English government
give an unfavorable reply it will
thereby be manifest that, they dare
not submit themselves to the judgment of a oonsciontioUK learned und
impartial tribunal.
The appeal is signed by W. J.
Leyds, A. Fischer, A. D. W. Wolmar*
anu, plenipotentiaries of the South
African republic, and A. Fischur nnd
C. Wessels, plenipotentiaries of tho
Orange Free State.

Aeoording to tiie definition uf a

in the   morning   lhe   velocity   of tho

MINE OWNERS' PETITION.
The Federal authorities it seems
cannot act on tho petition of the Mine
Owners' Association petition ami disallow the acts complained of, unless
it can be shown that they ure ultra
vires, and if there is nothing in the
acts which are not quite within the
power ol the local bouse. This will
nrobably make it necessary for the
Mine Owners' Association to bring the
matter before tho loeal bouse at its
next sitting -where it will be fully
treshed out aud if it cun be shown
that there exists grievances they
doubtless will be remedied.
Sir Charles Tupper in a recent m-
terivew declares that the Dominion
government cannot properly interfere
by disallowing tlio acts passed by the
provincial government,unless they can
be shown to bo ultra vires, and if
there is uothiug in tiie acts which
they complain of which aie not quite
within the powers of the local house.
The government, he said, can hardly
take exception to the two per cent
tax when they thsmsolveil passed
a 10 per cent tax on tho Yukon. Sir Charles thought it quite
right that the mines should pay
a small tax, but it should te levied
on tho nor, and not on tho gioos
values, whicli is liable to press un
Fairly on some mine owners. He was
convinced tbat in tho case of the
Y'ukon had u 5 per cent, tax been imposed, tho revenue to the government
from that source would have been
larger, as such an enormous tux as 10
por cent, only leads to much smuggling and disliuuei'ty.
Sir Charles Tupper is tho chairman
of the New GoldHelds of British
Columbia, which is developing some
promising properties on the west
slope of Sophie mountain and is therefore, in close touch with the mining
interests of the province. Thero is
justice in the position whicli he takes
as to the tax being levied on net and
not on the gross output of the mines,
a*) it is easy to see where it would
work a hardship on the mine owner.
The tax exacts 2 per cent, on the
gross returns of tho oie less the
freight and treatment charges.
Take the hypothetical case cf a
mine owner, who has piled up on the
dump during the course of develop
ment 1,000 ton of socond class gold-
copper oro that will average $0,50 to
the ton. This on* has cost him .5 a ton
to minp, but he can have it hauled to
the smelter and treated for 81.50 per
ton. If he leaves it on the dump it
represents a total loss of ,5 per ton.
If he sends it to the smelter he can
cut down tho los-i to .3.50 per ton.
Naturally be sends it to tbe smelter,
but tbo government Insists ou collecting two per cent, of tho SI.50, when
us a matter of fact the mine nwnei
has lost .3.50 on eaoh one of the 1,000
tons.
This is whero the 2 per oent. tnx is
a hardship and it also works a hardship whero the margin of proiit is
small as it is with most of the gold
oopper mines of Kootonay and Yale.
Let the fact that tlie tax works to
the detriment of a portion of the
miners bo demonstrated to tbo provincial government antl there is not
the least doubt that an endeavor will
at once be mado to make it more
equitable. It is the opinion of The
Miner that tho mining industry
should be taxed as little as possible

FOOLISH TREASURE HUNTERS.
Another exepedition is to be flttod
out, this tune in Victoria, to hunt
for tho treasuro whioh tho ollicial of
the Nicaraguan government are alleged to have nonces led on CocoB island
during the middle of the last century.
The government afterwards used tho
island for a penal colony and one of
the conviots oocidently discovered the
hidden treasure which consisted mainly of bullion. After his release ho
kept the fin it a secret until the island I
was abandoned us a penal settlement,
and tben ho set off in a vessel with
some friends to Bod the treasure. A '
sturm arose and the vessel containing
the party was lost and the ex-convict
nod those with bim   perished.     It  is '

further alleged that II. M.^S. Araph-
ion went in search of the treasure and
actually found the box in the ground
directly over the treasure when the
captain for somo unexplained reason
ordered the excavation olosed and
abandoned the search. Several other
parties havo diligently searohod the
island and have failed to find the
troasuro. Tho party from Victoria will
doubtless have the same experience,
for the story is an improbable ono and
even if, during troublous times, the
state treasure was concealed on the
island for a period thoBe who buried
it quickly found it again. It is like
the legends which aio ourrcnt in
every mining onmp of hunters, farmers or woodsmen finding, when alone,
in some wild and out of the way place
a ledge of tabulouH richeness from
which was broken off a piece which
went thousands of dollars to the ton.
The finder of these wonderful lodes.so
the stories go, either die suddenly or
leave tho country or have their feet amputate, or something else happened to
bim, which prevented him from returning to the lode, but usually bad
time to make a map or perhaps half a
dozen, and considerable time and
money has been lost by credulous people in au endeavor to looate the lodes
so curiously found. No one ever locates them as they are mythB, pure
and simple. Tho Victoria people wbo
purpose udventuring in the southern
seas in search of the uiysteriouB Cocos
islana treasure will probably have
their labor far their pains, and will
have gained considerable expieienoe
and be out of pocket large sums.
Tbeir experience will but serve to
support the old aphorism that fools
and their money are easily parted.
If these treasure hunters want a
show for thoir money lot them come
to the Nelson division where tnere is
moro hiddon treasure in a fow acres
than there is on all of the islandB in
the vicinity of Nioaragua.
and it is easy to discern a rejuvenation of the Slooan to its former prosperity. Lead cannot lung remain at
present prices and there are already
signs in London that its inclination
is upward and with an advance of a
couple of pounds in the present prices
it would produce a regular old fashioned boom throughout all the lead
pioducing sections.
LARUE ORB CONTRACTS.
The contract which has just boen
ontored into between the London and
Richelieu Mining and Smelting Co.
ar.d the Trail smelter for 15,000 tons
of oro is the largest that ever was
made for a dry silver lead ore between
a local mine nnd a local smelter. The
Trail Smelter, however, has made
much larger contracts than this for
gold-copper ore. Tho first large contract was made in lStlit when F. Aug.
lluitize operated the Trail smelter. It
was with the Le Roi Mining Company
for 7.1,0011 tons of ore at the rato of
'.'11 por ton for freight and treatment.
Two years since VV. II. Aldridge, ho
manager of the Trail smelter, closed
the largest contract ever made for ore
in the province witli the management
of the War Eagle and tho Centre Star)
Mining Companies. It was fcr 300,-
DOil toons of ore at tho rate of $0 per
ton for freight nnd treatment. This
lattor contraot has not yet beon finish
ed, only about half of the '100,000 tons
having boon deliveied. The contract
made between tho Trail smelter and
tha London and Richelieu company
providos for a rato of 87 for freighting from Crawford bay and for treatment and is a masonable rate for dry
ore of the character found in the section around Crawford bay. Tho ore
is of a high grade and by the time
thc contract is completed the mining
company should be in good linanolal
condition. Work on tho Great Dane,
tho Commonwealth an.1, other properties in the vicinity of Crawford hay Is
being pushed and the enterprise of
the London and Rieholicu company,
whicli is building a two milo tramway and has its properties well developed, is likely to be Imitated, and It
I . probable that several shippers will
be developed there during the coining
twelve months. The demand 'or dry
ores from   tho smelters will   increase
EDITORIAL NOTES.
A man who sold tea "with a wink
in it" for large prices at an old sot-
tiers' picnic in Indiana bas been ai-
rested for securing money under false
pretenses, as tho* beverage waB just
plain tea, says the Post-Intellgancor.
lt remains to be determined whether
a wink is a representation binding in
law.
"It will be strange If thei disallowance of the liritisli Columbia anti-
Mongol ian legislation docs nut cause
trouble," says the Hamilton Herald.
"If British Columbia ib not to be permitted to act in its own interest because its aotion might be bad for
imperial interests, Iirithh Columbia
should be compensated by the imperial
government.*'
A Chicago saving bank haB increased its business enormously by shrewd
advertising in the newspapers, says an
exchange Tbe manager scoffs at the
suggestion that advertising is heneath
the dignity uf a financial Institution.
"We have induced thousands of caro-
less people to become savers by daily
culling their attention tu the advantages of having money laid by, he
says: "No concern should be too dignified to tell the people through tho
newspapers what they should he told. "
Tbe Colony of New South Wales has
an enterprising mining department
which gathers statistics for the fiscal
year ending June 30th. In just fifteen
days after the end of the liscal year
the mining department issued its
report containing full particulars of
the output of the mines, gross values
of the output, and value of the different nietii's produced. It was a complete and aocurate report and the
totals were telegraphed to London
and elsewhere and served to advertise
the colony, In British Columbia the
annual report of tbe minister of mines
is not issued till live months ufter the
year which it Ib intended to report
ends. This is rnthei slow work for a
live western province, as wc should
at least be able to do as well as New
South Wales.

I    MINING NEWS.     J
l* +***********************
John Harris, mining broker of Spokane, is a' the Phair. He is enroute
for iho properties of the Silver Crown
Consolidated Mining company, which
hns two promising olalms near Ymir.
Mr. Iliu ris states that a crosscut tunnel is being run on the property to
tap the main lead at a depth of 200
feet. The tunnel has now been driven
SOU feet and it is anticipated that
tho ledgo will be interesacted when
25 feet further have beon driven. The
ledge outcrops strongly on tho surface
wtiere it is from six to 40 feet in
���width. Tho lode is a quart/, gangue
oarrying galena, copper and gold and
the ore is of a good grade and tbe
management expects to find a rich pay
shoot once the ledge is crosscut in tho
tunnel.
\V, II. JefFery and J. McKay Anderson are tho l'hair. The latter is an
extensive operator in the Duncan*
Lardo section and tho former has been
uxamining and making reports upon
some of them and it is anticipated
that a deal will be pot through in
this city within tbe next few days.

following transactions were entered:

FAVOR PARTY LINUS.
Nolson     Opinion   Is    That   Stability
Would He Promoted Thereby.
The general trend of public foeling
is strongly in favor of tbo next provincial election boing run on party
lines. Most of the politicians of the
const have reoogni/ed the inevitable
lint have, so far as noticed, not expressed any preferences. The business
men, who look lirst to the commercial
ami industrial interest of the province
and to party advantage second, see in
party lines the system most likely to
bring settled conditions.
In Nelson the Liberals bave put
themselves on reoord by issuing a let-
tei to the other Liberal associations
of the province asking them to cooperate m bringing about the estab
Jishmcnt oT party lines. The movement tlnis inaugurated will lead to a
formal declaration of tho Liberal
party.
A number of Conservatives seen
yesterday were equally as emphatic in
expressing a preference for the same
step. What they desired was settled
conditions,
"Wo have bad too many elections
recently," said Mr. Dover. ''In Nelson iiding there have been live in
eight yearB. A lew of tbo abler men
terra a government while the others
not being bound to any party feel at
liberty to change sides and so tho government is defeated and another election brought about."
So far the Consevatives of Nelson
have takon no action but should either
parly announoo party lines they
would bo glad of it and ready for the
cmr.paign. Only by such a course do
they expect to see stability in thegov-
erninent.nnd most of those seen would
prefer to huvo tho elections brought
on as soon as tbey can be conveniently. They considered that the proper course for Premier Dunsmuir to
pursue was to resign at once. For the
sooner tbo next contest is over tbe
sooner would the present chaotic condition of affairs be dono away with.
There might bo three parties in the
Held, the third being the labor unioiiB
who might niakw tbe rosult in Nelson,
the Slooan and RoBsland ridings
doubtful but in tho general result of
the province it wus dcubtfui whether
they could make it dangerous for
either party.

RHAIN-FOOD NONSENSE.
Another ridiculous food fad bas been
branded by the most competent
authorities. Thoy have dispelled the
hilly notion thut one kind of food Is
needed for bruin, another for muscles,
and still another for bones. A cor-
root diet will not only nourish a particular part of the body, but it will
sustain every other pait. Yet, however good your food may be, Its nutriment is destroyed by indigestion or
dypepsiu. You must prepare Mr their
ppoarance or prevent their coming by
a king regular doses of Uieen's August
Flower, the iavonte medicine of thc
healthy millions. A few doses aids
digestion, stimulates tho liver to
healthy aetion, purifies the blood, and
makes you feel bnoyant and vigorous.

Special Features of the
Florence   Hot   Blast
Our New Idea Deflector Fire Pot gre-itly increases the heating capacity of the stove, and in connection with the deflector ring forces the
heat to the lloor. The base is hot, the lloor being wanner than wUli a
base burner.
The Hot Blast Attachment takes in the cold air through a duct at the
rear of the fire pot, the heated air being discharged in a circle at the top
of (Ire pot, over lire, thus consuming all the gases and products of combustion. It can bo operated in connection with the front draft door, or
independently, by a screw register in the rear of base, insuring complete
control of the stcve with nearly perfect combustion.
The large Hot Air Circulating Flue on the back takes thc cold air from
the floor and ejects it. intensely heated, through the top adr'ing greatly
to the heating capacity.
Where the stove is operated according to directions we guarantee it to
consume all the gas contained in soft coul, thus deriving the benefit of
all the heat in the fuel consumed, causing a truly remarkab'e saving of
fuel over any other stove 011 the market. The stove will hold fire from
24 to 48 bouiM without attention.

A number of investing inquirers

and who take up I'ostum I'*oo Coffee in
its place, attempt to make the new
beverage with a little hot water and
two or three minutes' boiling. That
sort of a "lick and a promise" produces a drink thnt is simply exasperating. It is flat and tasteless,
whereas the person who will boil the
Postum full fifteen minute aftei the
actual bubbling and boiling begins,
will havo a beverage that is something.
There is a point between twelve and
fifteen minutes of boiling, when the
character of I'ostum is changed, the
food value Is extracted and the delicious flavor which much roHOinhlos the
milder and morii expensive grades of
���lava colfee is produced,
A lady in Halm, Oro., says: "Whenever I drank coll:*, nt night, I nlway**
p'tgsoil a restless, wakeful night. Extreme nervousness and a weak
Stomach have followed me ovei since I
bave been using colTiu. Finally I got
into such a state that my dyspepsia
took the form of spasms and heart

I HiilTered intensolj, and when a
physician was called, he enquired
among other things, if I dinnk ooffee

and we tried it (strictly according to

that 'children and fools judge of a

The new coffee was ilelioious and
from that day until now (which is a

interest to British Columbia. Tho
Minister of Marino and Fisheries has
jurisdiction over one of the most important of our industries, regarding
the conduct of which considerable
difference of opinion had arisen between practioal men and the oxperls
of the department during the tenure of
otlice of the retiring minister. There
had been no change in ihe policy of
the minister as compared with that
of his predecessors.
He should hail from British Columbia and he should bo capable of rising
abovo the traditions which have guided tho department in the past The
premiei should also depart from the
ways of his predecessors und refuse to
aocode to the clamoriugs of the men
of the oast who affect to have all the
wisdom of the centuries accumulated
under their hats and soein to fancv
they are wrongod unless thoy nru
granted positions on which thoy have
no legitimate claim.
