Sum of $40,000,000 to
Divide.
French Shore Matter Now
Considered of Importance.
Winnipeg, Jan 3.���Taking tho government crop report as a basis on
whieh to figure, it is estimated that
the cash value of Manitoba's products
ti tho faiiner is in the neighborhood
of $10,000,000. These flgnreB are
obtained by taking the total yields of
the different varieties of grain and
potatoes, together with the quantity
of poultry and dairy products and
figuring out the value at thc prices
estimate J to have been paid to the
farmer. The revenue derived from
the sale of stock, hay or roots i s not
included in this estimate as there are
no quantities given, but these, of
course, materially incrense the assets
of the Manitoba farmer and give him
a large additional reveoue.

The livening Telegram's London
cable says: ''Interest in tbe Newfoundland and the French shore question is awakened by the reply received
from one of the highest officials of
the Newfoundland government in regard to the long standing controversy.
The Daily Express considers the
reply a remarkable arraignment of
the colonial office. It goes on to sny:
This cum,try is surely not n people to
condone Ihe perpetration of insult
and injury to loyal British subjects as
a sop to the unconscionable pretensions of a foreign nation.
The Morning Post observes that the
French government has more than
once shown a disposition to make
concessions whieh havo not always
been appreciated by the people of
Newfoundland.
Hon. J. I. Tarte is in town, today,
looking over public buildings preparatory to making up the estimates. It

appropriations will be made for

French captains ar.d dn'cd Portland,
November 212nd, and published by tbis
paper on December 28th In which the
writers ask the French consul-general
at San Francisco to intervene and
demanded a government inquiry into
tbe subject. Today's attiele contains
extracts from the letters of the French
captains showing that 87 French sailors were beaten and deserted their
ships at Portland during the month of
November. Le Petit Phnre urges that
French diplomatic nction he taken in
this matter and says: "This senndai
must eciiiO. It extends even to San
Francisco. It is not worth the trouble
for the r'reuch pnilinment to vote
premiums to our merchant marine
simply to fatten these pirates and
permit them to sell French sailors like
cattle at a fair. '

prominent in Egyptian Ilnnnco and
wbo was made a Knight Commander
of Sl. Michael and St. George for his
services In that field.
King Edward has decided to devote
thia gift to a sanitarium which will
accommodate, lilt) patients. Twelve of
the beils are to be reserved for wealthy
sufferers, while thu remainder will be
for those who are only able to afford
a small fee. King Edward has appointed an advisoiy committee in this
matter.
Three prizes of ��500. ��200 and ��100
respectively, have been offered in
c innection with this scheme for the
bust essays on and plans for the construction of the sanitarium and the
advisory committee will be guided by
the result of this competition in the
execution of His Majesty's wishes.
The competition is open to medical
men of all nationalities. Sir William
Henry Broadbont, when interviewed
on this subject, explained that it was
intended to employ the open air treatment for consumptives, the sucness of
which bo said was now ansolutely
established. Sir William was unable
to give details but said he nelieved
thc sanitarium wonld be within easy
distance of London for it had been
shown that the open air treatment
could be conducted almost as successfully in England ns In Switzerland.
The papers all publish editorials
applauding King Edward's purpose
and the noble gift which was enabled
His Majesty to carry out the idea
whioh he has so much at heart.
It is understood that King Edward
will be compelled, much against his
wishes, to ask parliament for a grant
to-."urds the Queen Victoria memorial.
The hope that enough money for tbis
purpose would be raised by public
subscription has not been realised.
Only ��185,400 have thus far been
subscribed and this sum will not
nenrly  sulice.
MINISTRY FAVOR SALE.
GOES DOWN
IN OPEN SEA
Probability Good For Sale of the
Danish Wast Indies.
Copenhagen, Jan. 3.���The flanne-
burg, owned by tbe minister oi justice, publishes an editorial today
deprecating the demand for a plebiscite on ihe subject of ihe sale of the
West Indies based on the same piivi-
lege being claimed for Sehlcswig. It
says tbe inhabitants of Sehlcswig
(Prussian province of Sehleswig-Hol-
stein) are Danes by origin, language,
education and sympathy, while the
people inhabiting tne Danish West
Indies are mostly negroes not even
speaking Danish and adds that sucb a
comparison is injurious to the Sehlcswig cause.
The editorial, however, accepts the
Monroe doctrine being applied to the
Danish West Indies and does net lavor
tho proposal to transfer the islands to
Germany in exchange for Sohleswig.
The ministry is united in favor of the
sale. The Lnndsthiug or upper house
is controlled by the opposition but it
will undoubtedly consent to the sale
of the islands. The Rigsdag, or Danish parliament, reassembles on January 10th.

Pilgnm-Balaz?i,has handed President
Castro a ntste in which the German
claims against Venezuela are clearly
defined and in whieh a limit of time
is set for President Castro's answer
thereto. This unofficial announcement at. the enme time, points out
that the handing of the note in question to thj Venezuelan president cannot be considered an ultimatum from
Germany, since the note does not contain any reference to Germany's future   action with regard to Venezuela.

Str. Walla Walla Sinks a Few
Minutes After a Collision.
Twenty   Persons   Drowned.
Remainder Have Narrow Escape,
San Francisco, Jan. 3.���A collision
at soa early on Thursday morning
between the steamship Walla Walla
and an unknown sailing vessel resulted in the sinking of the steamer and
the probable loss'of at least 20 lives.
The Walla Walla is owned by the
Pacific Coatt Steamship Company and
sailed from San Francisco on January
1st for Pnget Sonnd ports. She carried
.'Hi first class passengers, 28 second
class nnd a crew.of.80.men. When off
Cape Mciidi,Mi > on lhe California coast
at 4.10 o'clock on Thnrsay morning,
an iron bark, believe to be Fiench,
luti'iis up in the haze and crashed into
the Walla Walla's bow. TKm tho
sailing vessel slid off into the darks
ness and was seen no more. All the
passengers and crew of the Walla
Walla except the few on wateh, were
asleep but weie aroused by the crash.
The steerage quarters were in the bow
and it is believed some of the steerage
passengers and crew wero crushed to
death. A big hole was made in the
steamer's how and she sank in 39
minutes. The officers and crew maintained strict discipline'and boats and
life rafts were lowered. All who
were not killed iu the tollision got
off oxcept Capt. HaU who went down
with his ship. He was picked up
later by one of the boats uninjured
witb tho exception of a few bruises.
A choppy sea was running and the
small boats could not make a landing
on the shore a few miles distant.
They drifted about all day and finally
115 people were pioked up by the
steamer Dispatch whieh took them to
Eureka Another boat under command of Engineer Brown and containing 13 persons attempted to land at
Trinidad and was swamped. John
Wilkinson, quartermaster; William
Martol, fireman; L. Drube, passenger
and three unnkown men were drowned. Those in the boat who were saved
were Engineer Brown, Fireman John
McClelan, Coal Passer William
Shinn, Sailor O'Leary, Chief Cook
Marshall and passengers Wm, B.
Smith and Wm. Morehouse. When the
Dispatch reached Eureka this morning
with the survivors, tugs were immediately sent out for the mitsing boats.
The tug Ranger picked up one containing eleven passengers snd three of
the crew.
The Walla Walla was valued at
about $250,000. .She was formerly used
as a collier aud about 10 years ago
was converted into a passenger vessel
at a cost of $175,000. The vessel was
insured for about $200,000.
Eureka,. Cai., Jan. 3.���The tug
Ranger has arrived with a boat con
taining II passergers and three of tbe
crew of the Walla Walla. One boat
with seven peoplo in it, arrived at
Trinidad, 30 miles north of here.
As soon as the crash Oocurred boats
and life rafts were launched and
under the direction of Capt. Hall and
his crew, most of the passengers were
placed safely on the rafts and life
boats, but it is believed, that the loss
of life will be considerable. Tugs
have been sent from here to the scene
of the wreck. The Walla Walla
carried 20 first class passengers, 28
second class aud a crew of 00 men.
The following passengers were
booked for Victoria: Mrs. Capt.
Johnson, E F Adams, L Hanselman,
Mrs Bastings, E J Hastings, W
Tubler, R Nevans. For Vancouver: J
H Brown and wife, Mrs B S Edgar,
W B Moire.
Capt. A. L. Hall, master of the
wrecked steamer, gives a graphic ac
count of the disaster. He says. We
left San Francisco on Wednesday
being bound for Victoria and Puget
Sound points. The weather thickened
as the night advanced and on Thursday morning a heavy fog accompanied
oy a light rain set in about 4.10 a. m.
I was suddenly awakened by an awful
crash on the port side, well forward.
Second Officer Luke was on watoh at
the time.     Tbe housing, especially in
the ricinity of my cabin was shattered, the main force of tbe collison
striking her just forward of rav
stateroom. My hunk was struck and
thrown across the   room   on illy table.
After the crash tho vessel, whieh 1
think was a French hark, judging
from the language used by her sailors, rebounded and grouped alongside. I called to her to stand by. She
drifted by ami was lost to view. I
could not tell how badly she was injured but I do not imagine she was
severely hurt as slie struck us how on,
aod though her forward rigging must
have been broken, it is uot likely her
hull suffered materially.
Those of the passengers who had not
been awakened by the crash were
aroused at once. The vessel began to
till immediately and she sunk in 35
minutes. There wus no confusion on
board. The officers and crew kept the
passengers from becoming panic
stricken. The crew was Immediately
oidered to man the life boats ami
rafts and an effort was made to save
the baggage. This was given up,
however, the vessel filling at such an
alarming rate that nn thonght whs
given but for the safety of the passengers.
I gave o.'ders to have the port boilers blown out, that being necessary
to give the vessel a list to keep the
gaping hole in her side out of the
water. in a few moments all the
lifeboats and rafts were out with the
exception of two which were smashed,
One of these boats contained nine or
ten passengers. All were thrown into
lhe. water but managed lo board a life
raft which had been launched a few
previously. The seoond boat was
smashed by striking a heavy object In
the water, but all the passengers were
rescued by another life raft.
We had 05 first and second class
passengers on board and IliO souls all
told. We had no knowledge of the
vessel which struck us, the weather
being su thlck^she was not seen until
we had been struck, lt was very dark
at the time and ^the uncertain light
interfered to a great text wilh the
rescue of passengers. 1 remained os
board assisting them, I went down
with tne ship. After 1 had been
down, I don't know now lung, the
social hall deck broke off and I flouted
to the surface with it. Sighting a
life raft I commenced swimming and
succeeded in reaching it. after a hard
struggle and was pulled en bi'ard by
the three occupants. We floated about
all day and early in the evening were
picked up, two miles to the north of
the wreck by tho steamer Dispatch
which was proceeding to Seattle.
From tho information 1 have concerning the rescue of the passengers
and crew I am not able to state how
large the death list will be but in my
opinion it will not he less than 20 aod
possibly may reach 40 or more. A
number were injured by the fulling
timbers. It is almost certain a number of the steerage passengers peiish-
ed in this manner. The housing of
the fo-ward part was split into matchwood. While not very rough, the sea
was nasty and choppy and the continual wash over the rafts was a hardship especially to tne ladies, many
of whom were nearly in the last stages
of exhaustion when picked up by the
Dispatch.
The list of survivors at Eureka includes the following flrst cabin passengers: All McLellan,Han Francisco;
Mrs C Hastings, Victoria; Mrs R F
Edgar, San Jose; Mr and Mrs Jacob
Miller, Seattle; Joseph Roberts, San
Francisco; Miss Gertrude A Cadicn,
San Francisco; Mrs J L Timmons,
Dawson; Chas. P West, San Francisco; F W Daly, Everett, Wash. ; Theo
Naight, Los Angeles; Dr F Y Adams,
San Francisco; Albert Meydtinbaucr,

Mrs Meydcnbaner, Lakcport, Cai.;
Miss Rose Peters, F L M Smith, F L
Stream and wife, J H Brown and
wife, Miss Williams, Miss Millogan,
W P Sanders, San Francisco,
At. 10 o'clock tonight it is impossible, owing tc the confusing lists of
survivors received from Eureka, to
determine the names of the lost and
missing in the wreck of the steamer
Walla Walla. According to the compilations of the Pacific Coast Steamship Co. all bnt 27 have been accounted for. The known dead are seven,
aB follows: John Wilson, quartermaster ; Wm Barton, fireman; L Ilrulo. a
passenger, and four others whose
names have not been learned. The
remainder are supposed to be adrift at
sea in three boats and two rafts.
Fourth Officer Brown, Third Officer

There lias been considerable objection to (rovernment by injunction both
in Camilla anil tbe United Slabs In
thc latter country it hns nsuniecl the
piop'irtit ns of a national evil and   tbe
liuc Hnd cry ajrninst it has   1 n   long
and lou,l.     It bus  been the  practice,
principally     of   ths-    United    Stiitos
judiciary, to tune Injunctions,   wbich
were   -.weeping in tlieir character and
covering' a multitude of acts;   sumc of
these   acts   weie   not    in   the   statute
bonks,   but   went   nude criminal acts
by thc   mere   dictum   of   the   judffoa.
Ihose   violating-   the   letter   or   spirit
of these orders was brought into court
charged   with   contempt  of court and
without   the   option   of trial by   jury
were found guilty   and   sentenced  to
such   terms   of   imprisonment   as the
courts might   dictate,     At times  tbe
courts,  it is claimed,    have been arbitrary in the exercise of the   extraordinary power.      One   trouble   bus   been
that tho United states Supreme court,
whicb iu  the   appelate   court   of   thc
United    States   Ciicuit   and     District
courts, apparently jeiiloiis of the scope
of the powers of the tredetftl judiciary,
bas   suslaincd    the   latter   courts    in
ivhnt a number of eminent jurists considered   was   no usni |:t ion of powers.
which tbey dirt net reilly possess under
the   constitution       The principal and
most valid   Objection to this   form   of
government   by   injunction    is- that it
takes away the right cf trial   by jury.
This right was flrst granted by Alfred
tlio (irtat in the   Ninth   Century   aud
r-hough   subsequent   kings   sometimes
tyrannically   set   thc   right   aside   it
continued     Intermittently    in    force
until the Harons compelled King John
to   sign   tho   Magna   Chart?   in 121f
Fiom   that   time the right of trial by
jury   has   liven    thu   bulwark   ol   the
liberties of the, English   speaking peo
pics.      In the United States this right
was   copied into tlie Federal constitu
tion   anci    is one of its strongest arti
clcs.    It   is   also n part rnd pared   of
the constitutions of   tho  st'ltes.   It is.
therefore, held and rightly, too,   that
under tho cloak   of contempt ot   court
proceedings the judiciary has   exercised powers   nliiih have been denied to
powerful   English  kings���tbe right tu
try   aud   condemn without   trial by a
jury.
The injustices which have been pcr-
pctuutcd by government by injunction, which set aside lhe liberties ol
the people and placed them at the
mercy of egotistical and tyrannical
jndges and under which considerable
wrung was inflicted on the people, has
filially attracted the attention of the
lawmakers ol the United States und a
bill lias beeu introduced nhich it is
thought will remedy the evil hy Hep
teientatlve U. U Bartlett, of Georgia
in the house of representatives.
This bill divides contempt of court
into two general classes, direct aud
indirect contempt. For contempt of
the indirect class, that is contempt not
in the court room, all persons thus
charged are tu have the right of trial
by jury, which is denied them under
the exist/eg laws. For direct e-jn-
tciiipt, that is, contempt committed iu
the court room, the judge may punish
summarily.
This law should and doubtless will
be adopted by the American boose of
rupresentati9M and thc senate and it
will do away with government hy injunction aud prevent further wrongs
which huve grown up under the system. Tho aliunde ol some of the
judges is like, tbat in the Story of the
American backwoods justice of lhe
peace who was drinking at a but
when he fancied tbat hu hud been insulted by a fellow inebriate and said
to the offender, "I line you |6 for coro
tempt ol court." "The court is not
in session aud you oan't line me."
said tbe miller oi judicial dignity.
"I want you to distinctly understand," replied lhe court with all the
dignity that was possible under the
circumstances, "that tola court is always an object of contempt���no mailer where it may be."
son district is below the actual output
rather than above. That for Rossland
is calculated ut 3111 a ton which is low
enough when it is remembered tbat
all the ore shipped lrom the Centre
Star has averager! upward of $18 a ton
and that from the Le Roi No. 2 upward of $17. Though these mines
have uot heen such large shippers as
the I.e Boi has been, taking the vuluu
of the ore from the latter as given in
the reports of the managers, namely
in tlie vicinity of $12, cacli ton of ore
from the Centre Stai raise:; the average of three tons of that from the Io
Hoi $1, and each ton of Lo Roi No. "
ou live tons. The average from tbe
smaller mines of the Rcssland camp
lias been high, that from thu I. X. L.
and the Velvet being particularly so.
The shipments from the I. X.L. averages over JlOu to lhe Ion.
At to the Boundary though $l> ore
can be profitably worked,in quarrying
out as large a body as tbat of the
Kuohhill and Old Ironsides miieli of a
higher grade is encountered, while
the average ol the other mines la very
inuch higher, particularly that of the
Mother Lode and II. C,, and their oul-
pnt alone would raise thn average of
all Itoundury -ores, taking that of the
i.Jriinby properties at $11. to $11. In The
Miner the boundary output was calcu-
litcd at $'.i,
Some very high grade ore has been
shipped frniii lhe Slocan. higher than
the owners usually care to admit,tti.d
this will bring the actual output up
to all The Miner claims it to be. In
lhe Slocan there are several mines
which have made small shipments,
generally of very rich ore, whose
names do not appear in the list of
shippers published but tho value,
though the quantity is small, helps to
swell the total. lt must be remembered that there are two mines ln tho
Lardeau which arc producing ore at
the rate of about V1U tons a week and
as none but high grade ore from this
district will pay with present, means
nf transpirtation, the increase over
last published returns is considerable.
The isolated mines nre usually so tar
lrom railway communication that
ugain   only   high   grade   ore   can be
shipped with profit.
The output of thc lode mines for
1(100 was upwurd of $10,COO,001) and
the increase in the quantity mined in
Rossland and the lloundary alone
would make tho amount of the increase in value which The Miner
estimates. The Lardeau in 1900 ex
ported almost none so that these districts alone", oan account for tbe larger
oupttit. The Miller aimed at having
Its estimate below rather than above
the actuality and is firmly confident
that it   is very near the mark.

ENLARGING CENT UKLT.
THE MINEHAb PRODUCTION,
Tlie Miner's estimate of tbe mineral
prod action of Yale und Kootenny lins
caused con isliT.ii'lt' ilicussion and the
more it is discussed the more its approximate accuracy becomes Apparent. |
Copper cents arc not mueli in evi
denee in Western Canada. They are
freely "Red in tile Eastern portion ol
the Dominion and a few have crept
into circulation in Manitoba. Further
west, however, they are looked down
upon ar.d derided so much that it will
take some time before they are regularly reengnized as a circulating
medium. Here in the KootcnayB we
have not very much love for the
nickle. In Dawson quarter of a dollar is the smallest change recognized,
and anyone attempting to circulate
coppers would he thought to be a fit
���abject for public scorn nnd contumely. Thc West bus not yet reached
the eent era, but doubtless in the due
course of timo they wili circulate
quite as freely, as they do in the east.
An attempt was recently mnde to
introduce coppers in Calgary and it
has met wilh conside able opposition.
The Calgary Herald raises its voice as
follows against the innovation: Th
Herald's protest against the introduction of coppers in Calgary by the Hank
of Montreal has aionsed numerous
comments from the Western press,
The I'Jdnionton bulletin,Frank Oliver,
M. 1'., editor-in-chii'f, says: "Possibly the bank did it to meet a supposed
popular demand, but it acted on mis-
information." The Hullelin adds the
following naive remark: "What the
Hark of Montreal or any other bank
should do to be popular Is to inlio
duee large numbers <>f five dollar bills
in circulation, the more the beltar,
and still belter if they made them
teti��. It is the large ehauge we want
and plenty of it.'' Another paper says
the introduction of eoppers is "an
insult lo tiie splnt'of the West."  The
Alberta  Plaindealer,,    published    in
Btratboona says: "Coppers may be
very useful in a staid old province
like Ontario, but in the West we want
none of them. Silver is cheap enough
for us." Other papers have copied
the Herald's remarks approvingly.
From the opinions expressed by business men and others in the city, the
introduction of coppers is looked
npon with unmitigated disgust, and
if the management of the Hank of
Montreal do not wish to deliberately
ran foul of public sentiment in this
city and district, they will reconsider
the matter and withdraw the obnoxious copper from circulation.

There is] nothing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in tbe worst,
cases.    It eures when all else fails.
The Rev. 0. F. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,
111., says: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good condition. I cannot
tel! you bow thaukful I feel for the good
derived from it. I Was a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
years. I despnired of ever being cured. 1
saw yonr advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you had overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a ti ial.
To my astonishment thn trial acted like a
charm.    S��nd me a full size bottle.

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of yonr Asthmnlene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been nfflcted with spasmodic utitbmu for the past 12 years. Hnving exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to seo your sign upon your
windows on bill th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmalen".
-My wife commenced taking it about the flt'Bt of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disnppeuml
and sue iH entirely free from nil symptoms. 1 feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are alHioted witb this distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D. PHELPS-., M. D.

In the case of Marino vs. Alexander
Sproat, and Mclnne.s, the appeal will

Oourt at Victoria next week. This
appeal came up at Vanconver in
November when it was adjourned to
January 7th for hearing to permit of
the plaintiff cross-examining the
defendants. Affidavits weie made that
alleged the discovery of important
documents which it was charged that
Marino had kept secret at the time
of the trial. The cross-examinations

now be heard. Sensational developments are stated to have taken place
with rcgnrd to the lost documents In

A LITTLE THING
Changes the Home Feeling*
Coffee blots out the sunshine fiom
many a home hy making the mother,
or some other member of the ht.use-
hold, dyspoptic, nervous and irritable. There are thousands of oases
where the proof is absolutely undeniable.    Here is one.
Mrs. C. K. Larzelero, Antigo, Wis.,
says, "1 was taught to drink coffee at
an early age, and also at an early age
I became a victim to headaches, and
as I gpttfr to womanhood these bead-
aohes became, a part of me, as I was
scarcely ever free from one.
About live years ago a friend urged
me to try Postum Food Coffee. I made
the trial and the result was bo satisfactory that we have used it ever
since.
My husband and little daughter
were subject to bilious attaoks, but
they have bath ueen.entirely free from
them since we .began using Postum
instead of coffee., 1 no longer have
any headaches and my health la perfect.
If some of these nervous, - tired,
irritable women would only leave off
foffee absolutely and try Postum Food
Collee, they would find a wonderful
change in their life. It would then be
filled with sunshine and happiness
rather than weariness and discontent.
And think what an effect it would
have on the family, for tho mood of
the mother is largely responsible for
the temper of the children."
W. A. Jowelt is linen in Nelson
after an absence of two years in the
Old Country. He spent the major portion of tho time while sway In and
about London, but made jour eys to
Paris, llerlin and other places ou tie
continent, and hns come hack for an
extended stay.
Uo says that on account of ihe manipulations of WhltaHer Wright and
others and the losses occasion od to
British public through their investments lieru the province is in disfavor
and It is next to impossible to secure
a favorable hearing for any B. C.
mining proposition. Hon. ,1. H. Turner, tho agent-general for llritish
Columbia in London, bus opc.ied an
office in tlie Salisbury House, I'ins-
bury's Circus, which is within five
minutes' walk of tho Bunk of England, and in a favorable location.
The offices of the Lo Roi and other
British Columbia enterprises are situated in the same building. Mr. .lowett
had several conversations with Mr.
Turner during which he expressed the
opinion that he would bo able to do
good wcrk for llritish Columbia, .but
ho thought it would take some time
un 1 consideiablc hard work to turn
the tide of British sentiment in favor
of the province. Recently the agenls-
gcncral of all of the colonies approached the directors of the Royal
Exchange, whose building is opposite
to the Rank of England, for the purpose of inducing tbem to allow an exhibition of colonial products tu.be
placed therein. This institution has
never boen used but by Llo>ds and
other leading underwriters and financial institutions. Sentiment was so
universally in favor of tbe colonies
for their patriotism and for the httlp
they are affording the Empire during
tlio war that the request was granted
anil an exhibition is to be held there.
The exhibit from British Columbia
which has been at the Paris and
Glasgow exhibitions is to be used to
form the nucleus for the exhibition
hero. Mr. Turner would bo greatly
pleased if all infrcsted would supple
ment this display as much as possible.
The display, located, as it is,in what
is the financial heart of the city,
should do much in the way of attracting the attention of capital to tbis
province.
As far as the war is concerned, Mr.
Jowett said, tho minds of the British
people is firmly made up and the determination is that nothing but unconditional surrender will satisfy
them. They have got to the point
that they feel that it should soon be
brought to a close, but at the same
time they fully realise the difficulties
and are prepared to pay tlie necessary
cost, and to wait for a considerable
period, if needs be.
While at home Mr. Jowett represented the Nelson Board of Trado at
tbe sessions of the International
Chamber of Commerce. Thc meeting
was held in Londou in June of last
year and there were over 600 delegates
from all parts of tbe world in attendance. Canada was very strongly represented. The various meeiings were
addressed by some of the most eminent
business men in London. Lord Camborne, Mr. Ritchie, president of tlie
looal government board, Lord Avn-
bury, Lord Strathcona auo other
prominent men were among the
speakers.
Mr. Jowett says he is glad to be
baok among his Nelaon-friends and to
see the large number of improvements
that have been made. The number of
residences tbat havo been erected since
ho left for England, he says, is sur
prising.

COMEllY OF "CONFUSION."
It Was Finely Presented by   the Rossland Amateurs.
Lait evening nt the Nelson opera
house the com'dy '"Confusion" whs
presented before a good sized audience. The presentation was an artistic one and reflected credit on the
people who produced it. The play
abounds in whluisioil and ludricrous
situations which arc built up around
the misconceptions Which arise over
the ownershin of a baby. In the
Hands of a skilled playwright, like
(he one who wrote ''Confusion," it is
wonderful how many laughable
scenes, incidents anil sensational cli
tnaxes can be matle. The members of
tbe company have the true spirit of
comedy and brought out all the lights
ana shallows, the mirth nnd the pathos
wiib mure ihan ordinary fidelity and
the result was a very satisfactory per-
formaise, for amateurs, and one which
was somewhat better than those often
given hy somo prolessional companies.
A word as to the personnel of the
company, Jackson ltigv,y as Mortimer
Mumhli-ford, bad rather a difficult
role,that of a husband who thought he
had been wronged, to play,and he did
it full justice. Mrs. J.M. Kitzpatrick
gave a graceful and correct enaction
to the character of Boso Mombleford.
li. II. Hughes brought out the comedy
elements in Christopher Blizzard with
the ease of a veteran on the boards.
Mrs T.^Il. Linton played the whimsical old maid character of Miss Lucre-
tin, Tick ley true to life. Harold M.
Sills, who was cast as Rupert Snn-
burv. a iludish Britisher, had a part
lhat suited him well anil there were
times when he certainly held to advantage the centre uf the static. He
Would innke a success as a professional. Miss Lillian Renwick was
sympathetic, graceful and artistic as
Violet, W. .1. Nelson gave an urnale
rendition to tne part of llr. Bartholomew Jones, and wns hcnitily received
when lie fir t mafic his appearance.
Thomas Lewis was senn to advantage
ns the policeman in plain clothes.
Paul Renwick gave a creditable enaction tn James, the servant, and the
father of the baby that caused so much
trouble, Mrs. B. H. Hughes won
applause as Jane, nnd her coon and
other songs and in the duet with Mr.
Bills, were well received.

To Work at Their Homes
Under the Direction of A
The GLASGOW WOOLLEN CO.
3T MELIMDA ST., TORONTO,
To Fill Large Contraote- Good Wages
Easily Earned.
We want a few more workers In this
locality, at onoe, and In order to seoure
your co-operation without the delay of
correspondence, we herewith explain
our full plan In this advertisement.
The work Is simple, and the Machine
Is easily operated, and with the Guide,
requires no toaoher. If you wish to
join our staff of Workers let us hear
promptly with the Contraot, order form
mlttanoe, as a guarantee, and we
maohlne and outfit to begin work at
onoe
Maohlne weighs 17 pounds. It la mora wonderful than a sowing maohlno, Juot
as durable, and higher epeod.
OUR   METHOD  OF   DOING   BUSINESS
will
We wish to secure the services of families to do knitting
for us In their homes. Our method Is the same as adopted
ln England. We are the introducers of this plan and the
largest   knitting   concern  in  Canada.
Alter long experience, we have been able to produce an
Automatic Machine by which all kinds of Rcamless knlt-
tlng Is now done by our Family Machine, thereby enabling
anvone of ordinary Intelligence to quickly learn to do the
work from tho Instruction Guide. All we require Is that
vou use the machine according to directions. The Machine
iielng made expressly for this purpose, and the operation
so  simple,   lt  cannot possibly make a mistake In its work.
The great demand now Is for Bicycle Stockings, Woodmen's Socks, and Motormen's Mittens, and as we are unable to supply the demand, have taken this method of advertising  for  more help. ... .   _
Thc large export trade to the North-west Territories.
BritiBh Columbia, and the British Colonies, furnishes an unlimited demand for our goods, and, with the combined cooperation of the many families we are employing, together
with the large amount of knitting we are able to turn out,
by which we save rents, insurance, Interest on capital, etc..
enables ur to undersell any manufacturers of this class of
goods, and we have sale for all the knitting we can have
turned out.
The price we pay for finished bicycle stockings Is $10.00
per hundred, or at the rate of 10c per pair; woodmen's
socks, 5c, and motormen's mittens, 12c a pair. All other
work   ln   proportion   to size.
The machine can be operated by any one of a family,
and at our prices any energetic family should be able to
sustain themselves comfortably, and In time be a source of
Independent   comfort.
Our plan Is to send out each machine to beginners with
n sock or stocking partially knitted, and remaining in the
machine ready to be continued, and also enough yarn to
knit one pair otf sample socks or stockings and a simple
and complete Instruction Guide, showing how the work is
to be done. When the samples have been finished and
returned to us satisfactory, we send a, quantity of yarn,
which you knit and return likewise when finished. We
prepays> charges on all work one way, and our workers pay
return charges. The work, as we have stated, Is simple and
rapidly done, the machine having a capacity of ten thousand stitches a minute. We have many persons now ln our
employ who can knit from twenty-five to thirty pairs of
socks or stockings a day, and where the time of a family
is devoted to the work, you can readily see that $15.00 or
$20.00 per week can be easily earned.
We furnish our workers all the materials, yarn, etc.,
free, and everything thnt Is necessary for the work. We
are furnishing the machines only for the exclusive use of
those desiring to take employment with us, who must, ln
order to become a member, send us this Contract Order
Form, properly signed by them, and at least one good reference, and remittance accordingly, to give us the necessary
assurance tbat the quantities of valuable yarn we mav send
from timo to time will not bo wasted or misappropriated.
Our Interests are mutual, and this confidence must he established If we are to succeed. We guarantee fair dealing
*nd prompt payment for work, so do not ask us to deviate
from our terms, as we cannot mnke a distinction with one
and not another; besides, we are doing an extensive business,  nnd must be governed by business principles.
The manufactured price of the machine Is 111, and positively will not be sold to any others than those who will
agree to do knitting for us.
If at anv time after you commence, and have done an
nmount nf work equal.to the purchase price, and wish to
discontinue, we will take back machine and refund- the
amount paid for same, after deducting cost of our expense only.
There Is a Ijirge Demand by the Trade for this class
"f ,w?rk. 0ur workers can depend upon lt year after year,
and If you engage with us (whole or spare time) we will
keen you supplied with work as long as you do It satlsfac-
_?.;_*. "��� R1" return It promptly. We entrust our work-
"      *    ~      "      '    bit
references as to our honesty and Integrity, we must ask
