The   Montreal   Gazette   of   January
2��nii contains an interview with Smith
Curtis member of the provincia
from  th?   Rossland   riding,
the following is a part:
Being questioned as to tho railway
question, Mr. Smith Curtis spoke as
���'I notice that certain newspaper
ntleranceB in llritish Columbia are
inserted in the eastern press directed
imalnst allowing or assisting 'Jim'
Hill's brunch lines in Southern British Columbia. Our people want railway competition, and are bound to
have it. We have a right to ask the
Dominion government to assist these
branch lines through mountainous
districts. The railway must prece'-e
population in such cases. Theie is no
nanger that American railway connection will be other than beneficial to
r.s. If non-intercourse witb the South
were not good for ns it would not be
good for Montreal; cut off your city's
connection wilh the south before you
actively prevent our connection with
the south.
"Thc proposed Coast-Koutenay rail
wny has caused tha foundering of the
Dunsmuir government which haB
sided with the Canadian Pacific railway, and delays its construction. The
opposition of the Canadian Pacific
railway is easy to understand The
new route makes the distance from
the rich Boundary country 325 miles,
as again the Canadian Pacifio route,
(ISO miles. There are only a few
thousand people now along tho route
of the Coast-Koottnay railway, but
once the railway is started the population will tremendously increase, and
rich mining, farming and ranching
country will be exnloitod.
"lion. Mr. Siffn bas recently
stated that the yearly interest on the
money given to aid the Crow's NeBt
railway is (100,000, but tbat the
customs and Inland Revenuo have
keen increased thereby 8500,000 I
year. The building of the Coast
Kootenay railway will duplicate that
result, and the government of Canada
tinould aid tbis and other necessary
railwny lines whioh we desire to see
huilt. We have territory opened up
justifying the building of over twelve
Hundred miles of railway, and these
lines should be built within the next
four years, and will mean an expenditure of $35,000,000; two-thirds of this
would go in wage3; and will enormously conduce to the rapid growth of
the province,
"If the federal and provincial governments would but awaken to the
requirements of our province its
Rrowth would be a happy surprise.
Our preseut population of 177,000 cau
In ten years be made 500,000. British
Columbia has large areas of farming
"id grazing land, but these require
railways to connect them with the
o��an and the markets! It is a mystery
to me why our department of the interior does not turn lis attention to
getting settlerB for British Columbia,
'or the aggregate per capita tax paid
'" the federal exchequer ls about $20
in lintish Columbia, as against about
8t in Manitoba and the Territories.
We, therefore, have a big claim on
Ottawa which has not been fully
honored up to the present.".
Mr. Curtis having been Informed
"Ht -Montreal had lost a good deal in
several western mining deals, made
Ice following statement:
The people in the east have con -
'used mining with share speculation,
-toe newspapers, instead of showing
^crimination in criticism, have ex-
"Bgerated the losseB in share speculation and at tho same time attributed
'"em to mining. One of your leading
''i'izona the other day quoted an
article appearing in a oity paper here.
'����t spring, and asserted the losses of
Mottreal peorle to be 125,000,000 in
the mining cme. This is a a popu-
>u delusion.
'The journal in question arrived at
to* conclusion  that  over  $30,000,000
Let me tell you how wrong thin
conclusion is. Uooderham anil Hlack-
stock, the promoter, nave always kept
a majority, probably 81,000,000 of the
shares| tlie public got about 750,000
shares, not at $3.88 a share but at
prices ranging from (iOc up. The number of shares actually sold at 83.88
probably never exceeded 5,000. There
has been no real loss to flooderhain
and Hlacks'o.ik on the shares they
have kept, as, douDtless. the shares
they did soil to tbe publio, recouped
them for any money advanced. The
average loss per share to the publio
doea not exceed $2 per shnre ou the
750,000 shares, or a total loss of
$1,500,000, and I venture tJ say that
not ono-third of that loss has boen
bane by Montreal people, So I could
go on through the whole list.
The great hope of Canada, we all
assert, 1 iea in the development of the
west; there is whore the census has
shown and will show the big increases. It will be retarded by our
press unfairly decrying it. Let me
tell you the truth about British
Columbia's mining future. The
mineral output this current yoar, in
spite of tho recent fall in oopper and
lead prices, will amount to $10,000,���
000. Her mines ten years ago could
probably all have been bought for
$5,000,000; today thoy are worth at
least, $75,000,000. In six or seven
years the annual output will be, at
least $100,000,000. The dividends will
be possibly 815,000,000. The value of
all her mines $22 ,000,000. To obtain
this increased mine value will require
$15,000,000 of outside capital for development purposes.
"Are our eastern capitalists disgusted by unreasoning share speculation, going to allow this increased
value of her mines to gu to outsiders
entirely, or not? I hope thoy will
net. I assert that legitimate mining
means big profits; even during the
depressed mining period we have passed through, I ean prove it ao.
"Take one section of our mining
area���I mean the Boundary country.
Woric was begun there on a small
scale in 1897, it got railway facilities
only twenty months ago. The total
amount of capital to date, over and
above the proceeds of ore sale,paid out
for the prospects, for their development and for smelters, does net exceed 81,500,000; yet the fair market
price which cau be now obtained for
the mining properties developed in
tho Boundary is, at least, $15,000,000.
"Some properties, ot course hsve
failed to realize expectations, but on
the whole, under adverse conditions
there have been shown enoromus
prodts. Notice that where money has
been intelligently dirested to mine the
ground there is a safe ana large return, and it should not be confused
with the operations of broken ra inlng
the publio."
Mr. Smith Curtis said, in conclusion, that the increased value of
British Columbia mines in the next
few years~~wonld be $150,000,000,
caused by a capital expenditure, of
abont $15,000,000; yet, he added, that
most dividend paying mining shares,
no more than railway and industrial
shares, are not a desirable investment
for people nil" wish a steady fixed
income, and should be avoided by
orphans, widows and clergymen.

Mackinaw City, Mich., Jan. 29.���
After 17 hours of hard work the two

good offices in bringing them to a
To this Holland asked wbethei
(Ireat Britain would be willing to
permit a Dutch commission to proceed
to South Africa, to enlighten the
Boer leaders in the field us to the real
position of affairs und more especially since it is understood lhat there
is not the slightest chance of intervention on the part of any European
government and that thc prolongation
of hostilities is useless. The Dutch
government expressly amojneed in
this note that it possesses no authorization whatsoever from the Boer leaders, either in Europe or South Africa,
to take this suggested step, but that
it appeals to (Ireat Britain on the
ground of common humanity for
military permission for the Dutch
commission to accomplish its mission
of pence. Such permission would
bind neither the British government
to the discussion of terms or the initiation of auy negotiations nor pledge
the Dutch government for the success
of its self-imposed task. It is understood tbat Great Britain is awaiting
the receipt of Lord Kitchener's views
on this suggestion and is willing to
grant the request, safe oonduct of the
Dutch commission, if Lord Kitchener
offers no objections, though it is not
hopeful of any practical result from
the effcrt.
Unison of Capital  and
Labor  Came  Foremost.
Correspondents Charged With Interfering With Arrangements.
Washington, Jan. 29.���The state
dapartment is disposed to attribute
the failure of the negotiations looking
to thc release of Miss Stone to the
newspapers. The recent arrangements
for her release have completely miscarried, a body of Turkish troops
guided, it is stated, by the finger of
the press, having appeared near the
scene arranged for the surrender and
caused the captors to seek cover.
London, Jan. 29.���The Sofia correspondent of the Times, wiring under
date of January 20th, says: "It is
reported that Miss Stone and Mme.
Tsilka were liberated this morning
on Turkish territory."
Minneapolis Business Men Ask Him
tn Quit the Fight.
St. Paul, Minn., Jan. 29.���Governor
Van Sant today replied to the petition
from Minneapolis business men who
asked him to cease his fight on the so-
called merger. In the letter declining
to comply with the request, the governor quotes the state law which prohibits the consolidation of competing
lines of railway. The so-called consolidation of the Northern Pacific and
the Great Northern through the
organization is, lu his opinion,clearly
a violation of the law whic'u he says
it is his sworn duty to enforce.
New York, Jho. 29.���A verdict was
rendered in the United States circuit
court today in favor of the Baron de
Hlrseh fund whieh had been sued by
James Arthur, a contractor, cf Philadelphia, for 870,000. Arthur built a
house for the fund at New Orange, N.
J., under a certain agreement and
claimed this agreement had been
broken. lie asked for judgment for
a loss of $53,000 and 817,000 interest.
Arthur's attorneys gave notice of a
new trial.
New York, Jan 29.���The annual
banquet of the New York Board of
Trade ano Transportation was held
tonight in the grand ball room of tbe
Waldorf-Astoria hotel. The function
this yoar had a double cbject in view:
First, to do honor to the memory of
William McKinley, and secondly, to
encourage the closer union of capital
and labor. Among the guests were
two former members of President Mc-
Kinley's cabinet, Charles Emory
Smith, ex-postmaster-general and
John W. Griggs, ex-attorney-general.
Then there was United States Senator Banna, Col. Myron T. Herrick and
Charles A. Moore, all close personal
friends of Mr. McKinley, Oscar S.
Straus, president of the Board of Trade
and Transportation, was chairman.
The meuu card bore a figure of Commerce with figures of the employer
and the employe clasping hands.
The souvenir consisted of a papier
niacins weighing scale on the side of
which was an anvil with sledge and
angle resting against it, while on the
other side was a bag labeled
Fire Captains William Clark aDd
Charles Autenreilh and four of their
men were blown down a stairway on
Cortlandt Etreet tonight where they
were fighting a fire, lhe flames were
on the third fiuoi and tbe firemen
were caught in a back draught of
flame which sent them tumbling backward to tho second floor landing. All
were burned and bruiBed and were
sont to a hospital. The monetary loss
is placed at 810,000.
The first toast was "The President
of the United States" drunk standing
and in silence. "Wm. McKinley and
His Politics" was the first toast to be
responded to, and Former Postmaster-
General Chas. Emroy Smith, was the
Mr. Smith in tho course of his
speech which was a tribute to the late
President McKinley said: He was
called to great deeds and he rose to
the full height of his opportunity. He
ruled in one of three distinctive epochs
in the development of the republic
and he dominated his era as Washington and Lincoln dominated theirs; if
we believed had a divine hand picked
and fitted them for tbeir great work
in the evolution of the American
uuion, tbe guidance of an over-ruling
providence is no less plainly stamped
on the life and the mission of Wm.
MoKinley. First of all, a man of the
people and preeminent in understanding their temper, he was the incarnate
and refined genius of the popular will.
No less a leader of leaders, be waB
equally skillful in swaying tbe
councils and shaping the action ol
political chieftaus. He moved amid
mighty events in a ureative and convulsive period and he left his deep
and beneficial impress on the nation's
history and the world's progress."

request for this action last Saturday,
urging his desire to dispose of the

with France respecting the Newfoundland htiore.
The colonial cabinet, in acquiescing
to Mr. Chamberlain's request retorfled
the fact that it was done as the
colony's contribution toward the
eolation of Imperial problemB in
South Africa: Newfoundland being
unable to send men there, takes tbls

that the redress of her grievance will

Toronto, Jan. 29. ���Hon. Geo. E.
Foster delivered air address on imperialism last night. The best future,
ho held, for Canada was a national
life in conjunction with the Old
Country that gave her birth. Some
people seemed afraid of the word
Imperialism, but there was no reason
why under true Imperialism Canada
should not hold all hor present power,
and at the same time bo a oloser component and integral part of the British empire around tho world. There
were two great reasons why imperialism was a growing power fiom within
and pressure fiom without. Power
from within was the strong loyal feeling toward institutions, form of government and lite general lines of progress and civilization typified by the
Mother Country Outward pressure
was the hostile sentiment with which
almost every country in the world
regurded Great Britain.

The election of Gorge Riley to Oil

made by thc unseating of Col.

Liberals of Ii. C. will appreoiiste. In
tbis election Mr. Riley defeated Frank
S. Barnard, formerly Conservative M.
P. for Cariboo. The victory is a
signal one when the majority is taken
into consideration as well as the fact
that ever since 1871, when British
Columbia enteicd confederation,
"Victoria lias been represented m commons by an unbroken succession of
Conservative members, and now Mr.
Riley has broken the spell that existed
against Liberalism and hereafter the
constituency should be represented

Liberal party. The change was not

supply the Canadian demand. There
are portions of Canada which are
suited to raising tbe sugar beet. The
industry should be a paying one as
Canada imports between 86,000,000 and
37,000,000 worth of sugar per annum,
to say nothing of molasses and other
sweet products.
Besides men who can shoot and ride
T-ord Kitohenev now wants SO Canadian trackers. The London Globe
in commenting on the matter
says:    "In the  more  northerly  parts
Only a few years since mines were
run for one metal and were known as
gold, silver, copper and lead mines,
but now many mines, owing to tbe
advances made in the treatment of
metals, produce four metals and
depend partly on each of tbem for
their profit. There are Borne mines
that produce as bigh as seven metals
nnd this is the case at I.eadville
where some ol them output
silver, lead, gold, copper, zinc,
bismuth and maganiferous iron. So
close is the business conducted that a
reduction of any considerable magnitude in the price ot one of the metals
means that the mine cannot be operate at a profit.
During a cold snap like the one
wbich this section is passing through
information concerning fuel hss an
added interest. A Mr. Hoffman is the
latest to bring forward a fuel ot the
future. His fuel is composed of common clay, the same material that
enters into the composition of so many
of us. He takes 90 per oent. of oil
and mixes it with 10 per cent, clay
nnd certain other ohemicals, which he
does not name, and which he says are
his secret. It is claimed tbat the new
fuel burns in the stove, grate or furnace readily, that il creates nu smoke,
no cinders and hums to white ashes
which are limited in quantity. The
coal barons who are supreme in cold
weather, had better look to their
laurels if the supply of oil   holdB out.
A rock drilling contest was held in
El I'aso a few days since which attracted considerable attention. The
main contest was won by Malley and
Chamberlain who in 15 minutes
dril'ed 40 3-8 inches ln Gunnison
granite with seven-eighth Inch drills.
The Tnrr brothers came next with
one-sixteenth of an inch less. It
seems that the Tarr brothers had a
misfortune the previous day caused by
drilling |;into an old hole. It was
alleged by their backers that they
were discouraged by the accident and
hence did not drill up to tbeir usual
standard. As a result of this a second
match wns made for a prize of $2,500.
Iu the second match the Tarr brothers
were victors with 39 3-8 inches to
their credit while Chamberlain and
Malley had only 37 1-4 inches. Tbe
former struck 1,130 blows, whilst
fhnmherain and Malley struck 1,227
blows. Each blow struck by the Tarr
Brothers drove the drill 0.34B0 inches
and by Chamberlain and Malley
0.3033 inches Chamberlnin and Malley
hail from San Pedro, Mcx., while
the Tarr brothers reside at Globe,

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
white von: s tin; ano ai>��ui:ns plumy.
There is noth ing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in t e; worst
eases.   It cures when all else fails.
I [The Rev. O. P. WELLS, o Villa Ridge,
111., says: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good oondition. I oannot
tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid Bore throat and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw vour advertisement for the cure of
thia dreadful and tormenting disense, Asthma, and thought you had overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial acted like a
charm.    Send me a full si/.e bottle.

Dn. Taft Bros. Mbdicinb Co.,
Gentlemen: Your Asthmalene is an
excellent remedy for Asthma and Hay
Fever, and its composition alleviates all
troubles which combine with Asthma.
Its success is astonishing and wonderful.
After having it caretully analyzed, we enn state thnt Asthmalene oontnins
no opium, morphine, chloroform or ether.    Very truly yours,

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been nfrlcted with spasmodic asthma for tho past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 1IS0 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmaleno.
My wife commenced taking it about tlie first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflioted with this distressing disease.
Yours respeotfully, O. D. PHELPis, M. D.
Dr. Tapt Bros, Medicine Co, Feb. 5,1001.
Gentlemen : I wns troubled with Asthma for 22 years. I have tried numerous remedies, bnt they have all failed. I ran aoross your advertisement and
started with a trial bottle. I found relief at once. I have since purchased your
full sized bottle, Bnd I am ever grateful. 1 have a family of four children, and
for six years wns unable to work. I am now in the best ot health and am doing
business every day.   This testimony you can make such use of as you see St.

Mother Rather Got the 8tart of Them.
Sometimes the mother plays a turn
on the young people and greatly to
their benefit. A young lady in Memphis, Tenn., Miss B.Dye of 822 Carroll
Ave., comments in an interesting way
about thc- harmless little deception
her mother played npon one of the
family during the Summer.
She says. "Every member of our
family could write a testimonial
about I'ostum Food Coffee and what
it has done for us. Father has really
Deen made over since quitting coffee
and using I'ostnm, but I must tell
you about Brother.
When he came home from college
last summer he was thin and looked
dreadful. We questioned him about
his food and drink. He said he drank
coffee, 'Of oourse I can't get along
without a good cup of coffee three
times a day.' Mother did not say
anything to him, but made Postum
for him just the same, and at the next
meal he complimented her on the
ooffeo. Several times he said, 'Now
H I just had such coffee as this at
school I could make tetter averages in
my Btudies.'
So during the whole summer he
drank Pot-tum, thinking it waB strong
coffee, and we could all see, from day
to day, how mnch he was improving
in health. His complexion gradually
cleared up, and he gained in every
way. When he wont back in the fall
Mother told him the secret she had
kept for over three months, and put
several packages of Postum in hiB
Yon may depend upon It, the lesson
was one he will never forget. My
younger brother quit coffee about a
year ago and has been using Postum
Food Coffee, and he has been built up
from a regular invalid until he is now
a fat rosy cheeked boy, full of life
and fun. Just the other day he remarked he was getting along so much
better in his studies than ever before
and he wondered what caused the
change. Mother remarked "It is
���Postum.' "

The Boundary Creek Mining oompany, owning the Last Chance mine
in the Skylark camp, is soon to be reorganized and placed on an assessment basis. The mine has been closed
down for some time past on account
of a lack of funds., but by making
the stock assessable it is though there
will soon be enough funds in tne
treasury to go ahead with the work.
One of the reasons why the move is
made is the fine showing that has
lately beeu made in the Lake claim,

Know How to Get Part of the Breakfast
" '1 know one dish I can prepare
for breakfast as well as any cook on
earth,' said mv husband one day when
the cook was ill anrl he had volunteered to help get breakfast. He ap
peered with his dish and I discovered
it was Grape-Nuts which of course,
was easy to prepare for it was perfectly cooked at the factory,but it was
a good illustration of (he convenience
of riaving (irape-Nuts about.
Wu just added a little cream and,
of course, hud a delicious hit   of food
We took up  Grape-Nuts Immediately
nft'-r returning (rum il the years'
sojourn in a hot country and our
stomachs were in bad oondition and
we were in bad health generally.
When wc llrst tried it I confess wo
thought there were other and better
things to cat anrl weie told we must
acquire a taste for this new food. Sure
enough, in a lay or t.vo we lilted
Grape-Nuts better than any other Jiind
of food on the table, We both gained
steadily iu health and strength, and
this was caused by (irape-Nuts and
Postum Fooii Coffee.
A friend of ours had a siiriilai experience. She was seriously ill with
Indigestion ami could fled nothing to
eat that would not give her heart
burn and palpitation, especially at
uii.> lit.
She found that a small dish of
Grape-Nuts with cieam rnario her a
f-ntisfa'toiy supper and gave her a
comfortable night's rest, In a shc.rt
time she has gained several pounds in
weight." The writer lives in 1'opeka,

clad sustained a number of severe
frostbites ou the way. Dr, Hall who
happened to be at tho mine was called
ta see him aud gave instruction to
have him taken hack to the hospital
for medical attention. He may lose a
couple of toes as a result of the fool
hardy trip but otherwise will prob
ably be all right in two weeks,
with tho more solemn theme of the
rest of the programme, which is an
exceedingly well ananged oue. There
has been a good sale of seats for this
event and tonight there should be a
bumper bouse.

good numbers on the programme is the
dsiet by Mrs.Parry and Mrs. Hannington. Of the choius, it may be said
that it contains nearly nil of Nelson's
talented musical amateurs and it is in
first-class form for tbe rcrbr.nance.
