GEN. MALVAR
SURRENDERS
Pacified Area In the Phllp-
plnes Being Gradually
Extended.
Gen. Bell's Beneficent Policy
Produced   Splendid
Results.
Manila, April 10.���General Miilvnr
has unconditionally surrendered to
llrigadier General Franklin Bell, at
Lipu, Batangas province, with the
entire insurgent force of the province
of Laguna nnd Batangas. (len. Bell
Siivs thnt his (Hell's) influence is
sufficient to quell the insurrectionary |
movements in Tayahas and Cavite'
provinces and capture all thoso In lhe
Held who have not yet surrendered,
bnt Malvnr hns ordered the complete
Surrender of every insurgent lo the
nearest American force.
(len. Wheaton, reporting to the
division headquarters, says that all
resistance in his department has ended
ana that the surrenders just announced menu that tho ports will bo opened
and that the Filipinos in the interior
camps ean be allowed to return to
their homes in time to plant the
crops. (len. Wheaton is especially
pleased witb Gen. Hell's care of the
natives confined in tlie camps. The
officers in charge are hold personally
responsible for the quality ��nil quantity of tne looj served out and lor the
general welfare ol the occupants of
the camp. After securing the mountain passes (Jon. Hell employed volunteer bolomen for protection against
Ladronism. Numbers of Filipinos
volunteered and expressed satisfaction
at the treatment accorded them and
their fainilites who were in the
camps. Oen. Wheaton gives Gen.
Beh great credit for his Indefatigable
work In conducting the campaign. He
was in the Bold on horseback day
and night personally superintending
the most arduous operations. The
people of Manila nre delighted at the
prospects of a resumption of trade
with the pacified provinces and are
anxious to show 'jenerals Chaffee,
Wheaton and Hell their appreciation
of the fact that the insurreolion is
over.
About 3,000 rifles havo been received
by tho American officers in Batangas
and Laguna provinces during the past
four months. Gen. Malvar personally
requested an interview witn Gen. Bell
in order to make his complete submission. The lack of news from the
island of Samar is due to a defective
cable. It is believed, though, that tho
American commander recoivod the surrender of all tlio insurgents iu Samar
yesterday unless the planned proceedings were altered.
A case ol cholera has occurred on

the north fork of the Kettle river he
said: ,lI am favorably impressed
with tlio coal measure on tho north
fork of the Kettle river, The coal
Ihere has beon analyzed and this demonstrates that it is of tirst class quality and suitable tot coking, The
fields are now being prospected to
determine the quantity. If the lesult
of the explorations is satisfactory the
measures will be opened up. 1 understand that a company i? being formed
in tllis city for this purpose. There is
no doubt in my mind, if the coal
measures are as valuable as they are
thought to be,that a railway line will
be extended from Grand Forks to tap
them. Such a lino would also open up
some valuable mineral areas.
"Business," Mr. Mauley said, "is
good in Grand Forks and the opening
of tlie Kettle Valley lines ih certain to
be of great benelit. Settlers are going
in there rapidly. On the Crow's Nest
boat which arrived in this -ity today
there were 17 farmers, who weie bound
for the Kettle river valley for the purpose of embarking iu gardening there.
A majority of them intend to purchase
111 ol 'HI acre farms and to settle on
them cr the purpose of engaging in
market gardening. There is a splendid market for such produce in Grand
Porks, Phoenix, Greenwood and other
Boundary towns, Although I sold 1,000
acres of iny land recently I still have
l,u00 acres lolt and 1 intend to cut
this up into small users and to sell it
lo incoming settlers. The Kettle river
valley will support u large population, for it is a veritable promised
land." concluded Mr. Manly.

A CHAT WITH  MANLY.
Says There is Revulsion is East in
Favor of B. 0. Mines.
John Manly, chief engineer of the
Kettle Valley lines, is a guest at the
Fliair. He and furs. Manly havo been
on a pleasure trip to the east for the
past month during which they visited
Toronto, Washington ard other leading cities. Mr. Manly in speaking
about tho business siuation in the east
said: "Everything is looking well
there and business is lively everywhere. Money is plentiful and
some of it will be. available for mining. The feeling towards mining is
veering around in direction of British
Columbia and the outlook is that
within a short time rncritoiroua mining propositions need not go a beg-
giing in Toionto aud Montreal. There
will not be tho same opportunity for
wildcittiug tliat there was when
Rossland was in its heydoy, but there
will be a chance for mining enterprises of the right soit. It is my
opinion that the Granby will soon
begin to pay dividends and tbis will
have a beneficial' influence. Besides
this a number of Kootenay mining
companies are distitouting profits
among their fortunate stockholders
and this has aided in bringing about
a revulsion in favor of mining, and I
look [or considerable investing this
full in our properties."

Washington, April IC���The drastic
Chinese exclusion bill originally
framed by thc senators and representatives from the Pacific coast states
met defeat in the senato today and in
its place was substituted a measure
offered by Mr. Piatt of Connecticut
extending the provisions of the present exclusion law and applying tliat
exclusion to all Insular territory
under the jurisdiction of tho United
States. The vote by which tho substitute took the place of the original bill
was .. yeas to 11 nays. Onco the
substitute had been made all senators
joined in its support with the single
exception of Mr. Boar, the substitute
being passed by a vote of 70 to 1. The
friends of the substitute showed tlieir
strength throughout the voting on
amendments which preceded the final
action and succeeded in preventing
any material change in features.
Some changes of an important nature
were made, admitting Chinese persons
connected with national expositions
and providing for certicHates of identification of Chinese in insular possessions, but otherwise the substitute
was adopted substantially in thc form
that Mr. Piatt presented it. After
disposing of the Chinese exclusion bill
the Senate made the Philippine, government bill, the unfinished business.
The Senate committee on appropriations concluded the consideration for
the sundry Civil Appropriation bill
today. The total appropriation
carried by the bill as it passed the
house is increased $2,000,247, bringing
tbe grand total up to $52,710,043. One
item of increase is: Fixing boundary
line between the United States and
Canada along the mth parallel.
$100,000.

A VICTOKY FOR BILL.
Ho Gets Bis V. V. and E. Charter
From the Dominion Government.
Vancouver, Apri' 10 ���Word comes
from Ottawa of a notable viotcry for
the V. V. and E. before the railway
cominittee of the privy council. Mackenzie & Mann on one hand sought a
Dominion charter for which the V. V,
and E. has so persistently asked at
Ottawa in previous sessions, but
failed to obtain it. In former years
the C. P. It. was tho opponent. This
time tbo Keltle Valley lues was
against the proposal and was represented by Mr. Strattcn , of Toronto.
However Mackenzie and Mann had
such a strong lobby out that late on
Tuesday night Stratton and his associates realized that they were beaten
and retired from the fight. Yesterday
the V.V. and E. hill went through
without a dissenting voice The re.
suit is that J. J. Bill by building a
IB mile circular road, will ho able to

ore in tbe nine, und that the shares
uid not, as alleged, belong to a Portland man when sold but to Col. Hayes
Himself. The mine has not proved as
valuable as expeoted.

Speculations as to His Successor and
Other Appointments.
Rome, April 10,���The recent signs
of the increased feebleness of tho Pope
which led to alarming reports of nis
sudden death, tbe end of last week,
have caused a marked recrudescence of
activity among the cardiuals aspiring
to the pontificate. The campaign
preparatory to the next conclave proceeds incessantly. The sacred college
is divided into two distinct forces,
headed by Cardinal Rampolla, the
papal scire'nry of stato, and Cardinal
Vannutteili, respectively. The latter,
and Cardinal Gotti now constitute the
most probable successors to Leo XIII.
Those who are not now considered
dangerous candidates are fond of
pointing out, however, that almost ISO
cardinals have heen buriec during tlie
pontificate of Leo XIII and that the
prolongation oi the life of nis Holiness for a few years, is liable to cool
many more ambitious calculations.
Archbishop Faiconi, the papal delegate in Canada, has been definitely selected to succeed Cardinal Martiuelli,
the papal delegate to the United
States. This appointment will not be
officially announced, however, until
the meeting of the consistory next
October. It was belt that Archbishop
Falconi's experionce in Canada, bis
learning, his cjnimand of the English
language and his diplomatio abilities
especially fitted him for ,he Washington post.
Tratlie in tickets to the ceremonies

Tne surgeon of tlie Monna reports
that in Sydney there were is deaths
from bubonic plague during the two
weeks prior to March 35.
London, April 10.-The Associated
Press bas excellent authority iu saying that np to a late hour tonight
there have been no definite developments in the meeting of the Boor-
British negotiations, The Associated
Press learns lhat Lord Milner, the
British high commissioner, in South
Africa,has defined certain propositions
upon which peace may he scoured
almost immediately but tho cabinet is
said to havo disagreed upon the merits
of Lord -Milner s terms at its meeting
today.
"Sparring for lime" best describes
thu present status of the negotiations,
neither sido being willing to risk a
decision which would tireak off the
present conference. An agreement
may be reached at any moment, but
this is moie likely lo be the result of
semi-Independent action by Lord Milner and Lord Kitchener at Pretoria,
than the lather involved condition of
the cabinet at London,
The broad lines uf Great Britain's
terms are now known to the government representatives at Pretoria, and
upon these representatives the cabinet
lpparently .shifting the rosponsiiblity
of taking advantage to nil opportunities, piovidcd no cardinal principles
be sacrificed, The govormeot has ordered that the cahle and lhe government lines between London and Pretoria be k*pt clear to ensure rho most
prompt transmission of Lord Kitchener's messages. There ls good reason to believe that the Iloers are
vigorously demanding a representative
government and that this demand is
opposed witli equal vigor hy the British representatives.
It is understood that the Boers
strongly object to the long delay proposed by (.'rent Briliiu hefore a representative government be granted the
former republics and that they also
insist that the number of Boer Scots
in tho council bo specified. lt is understood that the cabinet will reas-
semble tomorrow to dircuss the matter further.

A NEW TARIFF POLICY.
The announce nent of Sir Michael
Hicks-Beach, ehancollor of the exchequer, that an Import duty of :ul per
hundred weignt on gram and of 5d per
hundred weight on Hour is to be imposed comes like a bolt from tho blue
to the peoplo oi tho empire. It bad
been rumored that Croat llritain was
about to depnrt from tho avowed free
trado policy but it wns not thought it
would tako this exact form. The
government had taxed incomes beuvi-
ly and tho graduated succession tax is
so severe that in some instances it
has been evaded by gifts and dona
tloos made before death. The tax on
grain and breadstuff* is claimed to
be necessary owing to the beivy expenditure caused by tlio South African
war. Tbo cost of this war for the two
years an a half, that It has already
lasted, reaches tho enormous sum of
��105,034,000 nnd the import duty on
grains whioh is about to be levied
seems to lie the only available method
of raising tho necessary funds.
It is a radical departure from tho
so-called free trade policy of (Iroat
Britain and also from the oiten
declared principle to keep tho tax off
the poormnn's table, and to confine it
to luxuries for the rich. Tho Cobdon
elub and other exponents of free trade
principles will doubtless strenuously
oppose the passage of the measure,
but that it will prevail is a foregone
conclusion, as the government has a
good sized majority . which stands
ready to carry out its will in almost
any direction.
It was in 1840 (80 years since) tbat
the duty on cereals was abrogated
and since then (ireat Britain lias practically been a freo trade country. Tlie
oonditions whicb brought about the
abolishment of tho import duty of
cereals were that bread was hign, the
hands employed in manufactories
were uot then organized into unions,
while the employers were organized,
and wages wero low The result of
high priced bread and low wages became so intolerable that it caused a
revolt of tbo manufacturing population and this loci to rioting in Man-
chster and elsewhere in England
The result of the agitation was that
the ministry of Sir Robert Peel caused
the corn laws, as thev were called, to
be repealed. They had been lu effect
witb occasional modiOcations sinct
tbo early part of the Fifteenth Century. The effect of the repeal of these
laws was hurtful to tbo agricultural
interests of tho British Isles, but It
stimulated manufacturing and commerce to a wonderful extent and the
little over half a century that hns
elapsed since the abolishment of thi
corn duties has been the most pros
peroos period that Great Britain has
enjoyed.
As the duty which it is purposed to
impose is small and ns tho condition
of thoso engaged in the manufacturing
industries much better than previous
to 1846, when tlio import duty on
grain was abolished, the hardships
entailed under the proposed law will
not be severely felt. It is the entering
wedge of protect ion, however, and may
result in the adoption of further import duties which will change entirely
the tariff policy. Freo traders will
therefore strenuously Oppose the measure and will doubtl-.ss make a strong
effort to have   the   duty   removed,   as
soon as the financial condition of tho
government is bettered.
The situation should he taken advantage of by tne Colonies to secure
the preferential advantages wbich
they have so'long been socking from
Great Britain. For instance, the
corcnls of Canada might, bo admitted
duty free, while like products from
other countries could ne subjected to
the Import duty. This is nn opportunity lor Great Britain to give practical   encouragement  to the  imperial
spirit and to benefit the colonies in a
large way. The question is, will the
Mother Country embrace the
opportunitv?
MIGRATION OF FARMERS.
Migrations occur at irregular intervals and one of considerable magnitude is in progress and tho movement
is from the Western stHtf-s of the
United States into Manitoba and the
Northwest ,'1'erritioiics. lt is a result
of tho enormous wheat crop of Western Canada and the excellence ol the
wheat raised there. The farmers of
Dakota, Nebraska and other western
states iind thut they can sell the land
they aie cultivatiug for un avcrugo ol
i"'0 per acres and that they can get
just as good land in Canada on wnich
they can raise better wheat for $5 per
asrc, and many of then arc selling
out and purchasing farms in Canada.
The number ot settlers which will
come in this year will probably be
larger than in any previous year. The
Dominion Immigration commissioner
places the number conservatively at
3(1,000, which would be double the
number that camo iu last year. The
deputy minister of agriculture for the
Northwest tenitorios is quoted as saying that fully 200,000 Americans
would arrive, in tbat portion ol the
west alone. The latter is, wo believe,
an overestimate. Put the figures at
40,000 and it will probably be within
the mark. The new settlers are of a
desirable class, are frugal and industrious and the large majority aro well
suppliea with tunds. Thoy will open
up a vast area of valuable farming
lands with their capital and labor
and as largo as was the wheat crop ot
Manitoba and the Northwest last year
it will bo but a year or a few years
before it will be doubled.
EDITOKIAL NOTE?.
The revenue of tht Dominion continues to grow under tho beniflcont
Liberal rule. For the nine months
ending March ill tbe revenue was $3, -
433,s(il moro than for the same period
in the preceding fiscal year. The excess of revenue over ordinary expenditure was $10,437,000.
Smith Curtis has withdrawn from
the inquiry before the commission
appointed to investigate as to whether
his charges against the premier in relation to the proposed railway deal
are true. If the account telegraphed
from the coast in relation to tho proceedings of Wednesday are true it is
no wonder that Mr. Curtis withdrew.
Again work has been stopped on the
V.V.and E. railway. Any other mnn
than James J. Hill, piesident of the
Great Northern, would be discouraged
by the efforts put forth by rivals to
delay tlie extension of his line. Bu is
a man, howerver, who is not easily
stopped onco he undertakes to do
anything. Besides a brand new charter has been obtained from the Dominion government.
The Byron N.White Co., of Sandon,
purposes utilizing the waters of one of
the large creeks of the Sioean for the
generating of electric power. This is
to be used for lighting the several
cities of tho Slooan and for power for
the mines. Electric drills can be used
to advantage in the Slocan and when
plenty of electric power is available it
will mean that mining can be carried
on cueaper than under present
methods.
In London tbe gilded youth are
eschewing the cigarette and taking
to snuff. The fahionablo youth now
carries a snuft box, whioh are much
smaller than those in use in bis
grandfather's days. It is hoped that
the habit will extend, for as bad as
snuff taking is it is infinitely better
than tho health destroying habit of
cigarette smoking. Tho snuff box
will bo welcomed if tho cigarette
package will go, as snuff is the lesser
of tho two evils.
Colorado has settled tbe mining
taxation question on what seems to be
an equitable basis. Mines aro seper-
ated into two classos producers and
non-producers. Thc former is a mine
with a gross yearly production ol
$5,000 and over, and is assessed on its
proceeds, after deducting the cost of
miuing, transportation and treatment.
No producing mines are not assessed.
A similar law should bo put into
effect in this proviried.

The dynamite, however, must bo well

the guncotton is ignited it burns so

PROSPECTS ARE GOOD.
All   Parts   of   East Kootenay   Shows
SignB of Progress.
R. L. I. Oalbiaith, Indian agent
for tho Kootenays, arrived in the city
yesterday on his annual trip of inspection. Ho at present is on his way
to visit tbo Indians along Arrow lake
The Kootenay Indians aro considered
somo of the best Indians in Canada
snd are progressing rapidly and becoming more self supporting evciy
vent. The health conditions among
them are very good, there not being
nny cases of srriallpox or other infectious disease. Mr. llnlbralth states
Hint tlieir farm- were well kept nnd
they took great interest in them.
lo East Kootenny ut present business is dull except near the coal miuing centers aud along the hue of tbe
Crow's Nest Southern, Portal is omul (he latest towns to come into existence in East Kootenay. It is situated
close to the international bouudury,
where the Kootenay river Hows into
the state of Idaho, it, was formerly
known as Linklighter's Hudson's liny
post and Is in tho midst of a rich
fanning and stock raising country,
A considerable number of settlers
havtu'oino into the eountry there during the last year and tho prospects
for the ensuing season are good. A
customs house is stationed there
North of Portal the. next town on Iho
new railway is Elk Mouth, where the
line crossed the Elk river. The track
is now laid to that point and as soon
ns tho bridge is finished, which is expected to be about May 1, traeklayicg
on the other side of thc river will be
proceeded with. The next station is
at Crow's Nest landing ou the Kootenay, a few miles from Elko, which is
a point of call for tbe steamer. The
grading on the road (rom Elk Mouth
to Elko is nearly completed and work
is being pushed vigorously, operations
being carried on both day and uight
by tne army of mon employed by tbo
contractors. At Elko times are very-
good at preseot, the business men
doing a good trade. At Morrissey considerable building is in progiess but
be ownilto is not yet ou the market.
Fernie is also busy, and Michel is a
lively town, a large amount of coal
being taken out
At Marysville work is progressing
steadily on the smelter and tbe prospects of both Kimberley and the flrst
mentioned town are bright. At the
hitler about r>0 mon aro employed on
development work nt the North Star
mine and thu ropoits are most encouraging. On the Sullivan, it is the
intention ol the management to put
a large toree to work us soon as the
smelter is completed to supply it
with ore. Fort Steele is quiet cut the
mines, especially on Tracey creek aro
showing up well. On Wild Horse
creek tnere will be considerable placer
mining done this summer, the results
of the last season's operations having
been the best obtained tor some yenrs
ir that diet.ret." On Perry creek a
groat deal of work has been done during the winter, particularly on the
deeper properties. A company of
Wisconsin capitalsts have purchased a
number of placer leases and aro putting in a hydraulic plant on this creek
to work not only the bed of thc oreek
but also the bench placer lands. Cranbrook is progressing favorably and at
Wardner a sawmill is to be put
in whieh will probably help the town
considerably. Captain Armstrong, of
the steamer North Star, had just passed through before Mr. Galbraith left
Fort Steele, on his way to Tobacco
I'laius, and it is his intention to rnn
the North Star between the bounaury
aud Fort Steele during high water. A
good deal of prospecting will be dono
through the entire section this season
and altogether Mr. Galbraith thought
that as soon as the silver-lead question was so'tied South East Kootenay would be the best section of
BritiBh Columbia. One of the first
white men to reach East Kootenay, he
is as enthusiastio as ever as to its
wonderful resources, and knowing it
thoroughly has good reason to speak
as he does.

PUSHING DEVELOPMENT.
Coal   Output   Will   Be Large on Completion ol Crow's Nest Southern.
A. Dick, inspector of mines for Eust
Kootenay, is in the Oity on bis way
home Irom Victoria, where be has
been on business. He states that the
coal mining industry of the Crow's
Nest Pass Is making rapid progress.
At Michel the compnny is timing out
000 tons of coal a day, and is putting
up 212 coko ovoiis. A large number
of the miners from Nanaimo and
other Vancouver Island mines have
come ovei recently to worn for the
company at Michel and the town is
building up rapidly.     While a tunnel
ns boing run from the lino, of U12
tipple near the creek to connect with
No 4 tunnel, a magnificent vein of
ooal 10 feet thick waa discovered, ol
the harden and best lump eoal that
has yet been discovered io this part of
of America. This ooal is an ideal
domestic coal. This new tunnel is to
be ^00 feet in length when com
pleted, und all the coal from No. 1
tonnel will bo brought out through it.
It is expected that it will be completed next month.
At Coal creek quite a litte town has
sprung up near the mines which are
increasing in chipping facilities at tho
time. Of the six veins that bave been
uncovered lor working, into which
eight tunnels have been run, Nos. 1
ind 2 are IH feel thick. The mines
are turning out 2,000 tons a day from
these veins. Fernie is very lively aud
n good deal oi building is going ou.
At Morrissey the coal -ompany has
erected buildings snilieient to accomodate about 200 workmen. Considerable
development work has heen done in
opening up the veins and an immense
lot of coal is ready for shipping and
is only awaiting tho completion of the
Crow's Nest Southern, to be shipper).
Quite a town has been built up there,
wailing for occupancy (or tho arrival
of the railway,   when a large force of
en will be put to work. The town-
site has not yet been put on the market, by Mr. Dick said he thought that
it would be a good town very quickly. Besides the drifting on the veins
that has beon done, ventilating apparatus bas boen put in and all made
ready so that when the railway
reaches the mine, providing an outlet
for the product, shipping can be commence Iramelately,

MERELY SURMISES.
Capt. Gifford Speaks of Hall Mine
Rumors and His Resignation.
In the mining department of the
Colonist of last Sunday appears an
item to the effect Hint a private cable
from London announces tbat the price
of Hall Mines shares has fallen, and
tbat Capt. Gifford, the superintendent
had resigned. From this a series of
surmises is made and the shareholders
commiserated witn.
Capt. Gilford, who was in the city
yesterday, states that there is not tho
least truth in the statement that he
has resigned and as to the remainder
of the item they are mere inferences
and nothing moro. Development work
is being continued and ore is being
daily shipped to the smelter. Just
what part of thc mino the ore was
coming from he did not care to say.

that there has been a very small increase. The fact that a redistribution

SWEET BREATH
When Coffee Is Left Off.
A test was made to find if   just
the
Fascinating
leaving off of coffee alone would produce an equal condition of health as
when coffee is left off snd I'ostum
Food coffee used in its place.
A mau from Clinton, Wis , mado
the experiment. Ho says, "About n
year aso I left off drinking coffee and
tea .and began to use Postum. For
several years previous ray system had
been in wretched oondition, 1 always
had a thickly furred, bilious tongue
and foul breath often accompanied
with sevoro headaches. I was
troubled ail tho time with chronic
constipation so that I wns morose in
disposition and almost discouraged.
At tlio end of the first week after
making the change from coffee to Postum I witnessed a marvelous change
in myself. My once coated tongue
cleared off, my small appetite increased, breath became sweet and the
headaches ceased entirely One thing
1 wish to state emphatically, you have
in l'osWnn a virgin remedy for constipation, for I certainly had about tbe
worst case over known among mortals
and 1 am completely cured of it. 1
feel,  in every way, like a new person.
During the Inst summer I concluded
that I would experiment to see if the
I'ostum kept mil in good shape or
whether 1 had gotten well from just
-leaving off coffee. Sc I unit I'ostum
for quite a time and drank cocoa and
water. I found out, before two weeks
were past, that something was wrong
and I began to get costive as of old.
It was evident the liver was not
working properly, so I became convinced it was not tho avoidance of
coffee alone that cured me but the
great value came from the regular
use of Postum,"
Uev. F. II. Graham,of St. Saviour's
church, is in receipt of a letter asking
the whereabouts of Pierson li. Linds-
loy, commonly known as .lack Linda-
Icy. Anyone knowing anything concerning Mr. liindslcy will confer a
favor hy communicating with Mr.
Graham at the Phair.

Yesterday morning as the steamer
International was passing Thirteen
Mile point, one of tbe deck hands
slipped and fell ovei board. Tbe
steamer was going at full soeed, but
before he passed astern a life buoy
was thrown, which the man in the
water caught. The boat was turned
as quickly as possible and came up to
him when ho was hauled on board
with a boathook none the wcrse for

The funeral of the late Hedley Vicar
Sinclair was held yesterday afternoon
Through the uourtcsy of the C. P. R.
arrangements were made by which a
large number of the steamer employes
were able to attend the funeral. The
funeral service was held in tho Presbyterian church, being conducted by-
Rev. Dr. Wright. A large number of
beautiful flora 1 token wero placed on
the coffin by the many friends of the
deceased. A number of the C. Y. R.
officials were present.
The committee appointed to visit
and inspect the prospective sites for a
race track has not yet made its
visit or report, but it is expected that
it will be ready at au early dato. As
it was decided that the Fairview site
would be too expensive, the city park
is considered the next best proposition, although it Is not known yet
whether it is practicable, as there are
said to bo several soft pieces of boggy-
land on the proposed site which would
seriously interfere with the buildings.
The site on the Granite road, which
is about two and one half miles
from tbe city, west of Norcross's
ranch is thought to be too far out,
although suitable in other respects.
The great advantage of building it on
the city's park allowance it that it
would be a permanent asset to the
oity, and once established would be
improved each year.
A rather dramatic incident took
place Tuesday evening in connection
with tho death ot H. V. Sinclair, who
was buried yosterday. A little over
three years ago, it is reported, Mrs.
Sinclair, his mother, took up a preemption a short distance south of tne
international boundary. An adverse
waB put in soon after and the case was
taken to the courts, resulting in a victory for the Sinclairs. Then this judgment was appealed from, with tho
same result, and finally after years of
litigation the final decision was given
in thoir favor. The lawaoit was a
long and expensive one, draining the
resources of the Defendant. Then tbe
eldest son, H. V. Sincair, took sick
and died, and thc body was removed
to the undertakers. It had been thore
but a short time when another body
was brought in and placed in a coffin
beside that of Sinclair. Tht second
arrival was James Amiot, who had
brought tbe adverse against the homestead, who had followed his opponent
so swilty afterwards to the great
hereafter.
