THE AFRICAN WAR MEDAL
A NELSON BOY BRINGS BACK ONE
OF THE FIRST   TnAT WAS
ISSUED.
A. WILKIE MACKENZIE RECEIVED
IT FROM   KING EDWARD'S
OWN HANDS.
TJio first of the South African war
medals to be brought into Nelson was
that won by Trooper A. Wilkie MacKenzie, CC, Strathcorra Horse, who enlisted in Nelson,served throughout the
campaign with credit to himself and
returned home yesterday afternoon.
The medal is a handsome decoration,
suspended on a crimson, black and
yellow ribbon. Trooper MacKenzie
will wear two clasps, one for Natal
and the other for the Orange Free
State. A special feature In connection
with the medal Is that the Strathconas had the distinction of receiving
their hard earned decorations from
the hands of King Edward in person. The regiment was paraded at
Buckingham Palace and in forming
for the presentation ceremonies u bud
bull in drill tactics ��>as perpetrated.
The Duke of Cambrigde. and Lord
Wolseiey, both martinets, frowned but
King Edward smiled and accepted Colonel Steele's explanation, "We are not
tin soldiers. We left homo to fight,
not to learn squad drill," witli'auius-
ed complacency. As a result of of the
error, the British Columbia Bquadrou
was brought to the front and received
their medals first. Private Allan of
Rossland, was the first of the troopers
to receive from the lianas of the King
the neat box containing the medal.
Private MacKenzie was ubout thirtieth in the line.
This was the crowning event of the
trip. A close second wus when Lord
Kitchener addressed the regiment
prior to their departure from Africa
and commended them in the highest
terms for their services, remarking
that had they Neen the bundles of letters from various generals asking for
the services of the Strathconas they
would readily understand, why they
were worked so hard and continuously.
The men enjoyed the hard work and
were always keen for a skirmish with
the wily liners.' There was not a single desertion in the corps and no gen-
oral courtmartials were required for
the Strathconas. Hu'iiiuing up his experiences Mr. MacKenzie says: "I
would not have missed the campaign
for 8I>,000 und wouldn't have taken
twice that amount to remain in the
country amid the guerilla fighting
now under way."
General Buller is admired by ull
the troops that served under him, and
the Strathconas are no exception to
the rule. They say the criticisms of
his conduct of the Natal campaign
were penned by men ten or fifteen
miles away from the scene of the actual fighting and are, theiefore,
worthless,
Mr. MacKenzie had a touch of enteric fever but otherwise come through
unscathed and is several pounds heavier than when he enlisted here last
yoar.
EASTERN BYE-ELECTIONS.
Liberal Wins   In   East Queens���North
Bruce Doubtful.
(SI'KCIAI, TO THE MINKIl.)
Toronto, March 20.��� The result of
the North Bruce bye-election today is
in doubt, both parties claiming the
scat. Six polls remain to be heard
from and cannot report until tomiuor-
row. Campbell (Liberal) has 12 majority over Hulliduy (Consoravtlve)
iis far as heard.
In East Queens, P. E. I.,the Liberul
candidate has 1170 majority.
Latost returns from North Bruce
give Hulliduy (ConHeruvtivc), one majority with three places to hear from,
which will likely increase it to 20.

CHARTER 18 PASSED
The Crow's Nest Southern Railway Bill Approved in
Committee-The House Is Expected to Pass
the Measure-Little Opposition.
Victoria, B. O., March 20.���Contrary to the expectations of everyone
the application for a charter for the
Crow's Nest Southern passed through
the railway committee this morning
without opposition, and later in the
day was reported to the house.
It is evident that the government
for the present has withdrawn ifs opposition, and Premier Dnnsmuir's
statement in regard to his not being
dominated   by the C. P. R.   indicates
(SI'KCIAI. TO THE MINER.)
that the cabinet is not  bound to that
road.
In caucus a few days ago when the
railway policy of the administration
was under discussion it is understood that the premier stated that so
far as that matter was concerned he
intended to be guided entirely by
the opinions of his followers. As
there is a strong Jaffray element to
the right of the speaker it is not unlikely that the bill will go through
with little  opposition,   especially   as
the opposition    is  almost   unanimous
in the matter.
A statement made in this correspondence a short time ago that the
government was waiting ��o see the
course of events in Ottawa is confirmed in the premier's and attorney-
general's speeches today. Both of
them Baid that so far as the local government is concerned it is ready now
to disclose its policy, but they
thought it better to wait to see what
action was taken at Ottawa with regard to the large railway projects
now before the country.
us, the sons of your ancient institution will each in his place play his
due part in the maintenance and government of the empire, in tho development of which your countrymen have
figured so conspicuously, and that
they will add to the long roll of names
of Irishmen who have rendered distinguished services in the various
branches of human activity."

At the Charge That He Was Dominated By theC P. R.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Victoria, March 20.���There were
warm words from Premier Dunsmuir
in the house today over the charge
by a lawyer of the city, E. V. Bod-
well, at last night's big meeting in
favor of the revival of the V. V. A E.
charter to Kootenay.
Mr. Bodwell said the premier and
the executive were under control of
the C. P. R. Mr. Dunsmuir repudiated the charge and said he had only
one interest in the house. That was
the Interest of British Columbia and
he would not sell the province for
ull the corporations and companies In
it. He also said that the government
was quite redy to announce Its railway policy but It was thought better to await Information with regard
to tbe position the Ottawa cabinet
intend taking re projected railways.
Mr. Martin concurred in the premier's position re charges.and applause
came from both sides of the house.
A   HAPPY IDEA.
Victoria Manufacturer Will Discharge
Ills Chinese Laborers.
(SI'KCIAI, TO THE MINER.)
Victoria, B. C, March 20.���Angus
McKeown, shoe manufacturer, successor to Ames, Holden A Co., told the
Chinese commission this morning
that he would discharge 10 Chlnose
now engaged by him and replace
them by white laboi. At present be
employs only four whites. His reason for doing so is that the evidence
given has shown that the employment ot Mongolians displaces white
labor.

TBE KING'S "AT HOME."
His    Majesty   Receives    Deputations
From All Parts of the Kingdom.
London, March 20.���At St. James
Palace this afternoon, King Edward
wearing a field marshal's uniform received between forty und fifty deputations from various parts of the Kingdom, bearing addresses of condolence
und congratulations. His majesty
made an acknowledgment to the general body, but made separate replies
to the Free Masons and to the deputation from Trinity College, Dublin.
The Duko of Connnught presented
the Free Mason's address. The King
expressed his greut regret at relinquishing the grand mastership.
King Edwnrd is growing more and
more exacting concerning the formalities on these occasions. A few hums
before the reception of a recent deputation, his majesty asked the Lord
Churabcrlaiu what dress they would
wear. "Frock coats, your majesty,"
replied the Lord Chamberlain. "For
the last time then," said King Edward, "In the future uniform or
court dreSB uiubt be worn. This is
not urepublia."
Ilo promised as protector to continue watching over tholr interests
anil to rejoice over their prospeilty
and growth. He also announced his
great satisfaction that "one near
me in blood and united In sympathy
with the fraternity" has been chosen
as his successor in the grand mastership, referring to the Duko of Con-
naught.
To the Trinity College, Dublin,
deputation, King Krlwurd said: "I

THE ROSSLAND FIGHT.
Burns Won   After   a Game and Helen-
Battle.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Rossland B. C, March 21.��� The
fight between^ Burns and Goflf, which
took place in the Rossland opera
house under tbe auspices of the Ross
land Athletic Association this even
Ing, was won by the former in the
ninth round. Burns put a right on
the jaw and left on neok, and as Guff
tottered to a fall, he struck him with
his right at the back of the heari, at
the base of the brain, doff went
down and out. As Referee McArthur
had counted to four when the gong
sounded, GorT was carried to his cor
ner, but when time was called for the
tenth round he was too groggy to
come to time and his seconds threw up
the sponge.
Tho fighting was fast and furious
from the start. In the first round
Burns rushed Goff nnd had him grog
gy, but he braced up and In the succeeding rounds he did some flue work
punishing Burns severely and once or
twice had him badly distressed. Guff
lacked the strength to give the coup
de grace to his bigger antagonist.
Altogether it was the best contest
that ever took place In the Kootenays,
as both the pugilists wore as game
as pebbles, fought all tho time they
were In the ring and displayed much
science and cleverness. Nearly 500
people witnesses the contest, Including a contingent of Nelson sports.
HOPE FOR
THE MINES
A Commission to Inquire Into
the Whole Subject of
Mining.
The Entire Mineral Resources
of Canada Also to Be
Advertised.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Ottawa, March 20.���This was private members' clay in the house, so
the budget debate was laid over
until tomorrow.
Replying to Mr. Prior, the minister
of the interior, stated that the question of tbe advertisement of tho mineral resources of Hritish Columbia
and the whole of Canada was under
consideration. Tho government was
also considering the question of the
appointment of a commission to inquire into the whole subject of mining.
Mr, Bonnet moved that duties
should be levied upon lumber imported into Canada corresponding with
those now existing upon lumber entering the United States. American lumber at present successfully competes
with Canadian lumber in Manitoba
and the territories. The purpose of
Mr. Bonnet's resolution is the giving
of the British Columbiu and New
Ontario lumbermen a chance to get
thls'iuarket. The support of the resolution therefore, came chiefly from
Ontario and British Columbia members, while the opposition came from
northwest members. Davis, of Sasak-
tchewun, said to adopt the resolution
would be not only against the Interests of tlie province of Manitoba
and the Northwest, but the Dominion at large. It was only the province of British Columbia tint wanted
a duty imposed. A circular distributed by British Coliiinhiu lumbermen said that it was the only industry that was not protected. To place
a tax on lumber used for farm buildings in Manitoba and the Northwest
would be Injurious to the best interests of the country, and it was not In
Manitoba alone that this tax would
be felt. Charlton supported the resolution.
The orrlor of business changed at 6
o'clock ami the discussion had nut
been concluded at that time. At the
evening session private bills were advanced a stage. The house adjourned
at H180 p. in.
8250,000,000 INDEMNITY.
Washington, March 20.���It is stated
that the sum total of the indemnities
claimed by all nations from China
cannot bo calculated at this moment
because of the lack of agreement
among the powers on the basis of settlement, but assuming the powers are
willing to accept the scheme of adjustment proposed by the United
States, allowing a certain amount for
each missionary killed or injured,
and another allowance for property
destroyed, tbe sum total uf the claims
would lie considerably less than 8-50,-
000,000.

GOVERNMENT OWNERSHIP.
Citizens   of   Vancouver    in  public
meeting assembled   have placed them
selves on record   as   unanimously   fa
voring  the  government   construction
of all railways.    It must be  apparent'
to the most   thoughtless   tbat a sentiment in favor of such a policy   is rapidly growing   in   Canada.   Indeed, it
has already assumed   such formidable
dimensions that serious consideration
to the suggestion is demanded from tbe
federal and  provincial   governments.
Hut as   to   whether   this course  will
ne finally pursued is  a  matter which
altogether depends  upon  the measure
of public support   accorded   tbe   proposal.    There   is   perhaps no Important question upon which public opinion has crystallized mure rapidly than
that of the public ownership  of  railways, and the   arguments which  are
advanced by those who favor an adoption of the policy are very convincing.
When a subsidy is granted at so much
a mile  the   invariable  tendency is to
construct as large a mileage as   possible in order to secure the  government
subsidy, and to Sell   the bonds   of the
company, most charters  giving   them
power to iBsue bonds in the proportion
of 820,000 per   mile.   Hence  the  road
is pushed through rapidly,often greatly in advance of public requirements,
and population strung ont sparsely in
small settlements instead of the country being peopled compactly and consecutively.    Under   government   construction   the   work   need be pursued
no faster and on farther than   required, letting settlement  advance gradually and fill up the surrounding country.   Roads   built   In order to  claim
subsidies and sell bonds, in advance of
tbe legitimate demand   of  traffic   entail heavy freight and passenger rates.
The management fix the rates   sufficiently high to   cover   the   interest  on
bonds, sold generally at  a heavy  discount, as well as on   the   government
subsidy, and in   addition  thev figure
on paying a  dividend  on   their common stock.    Until this point Ib reached all expostulations   as to the extortionate figures charged are met by the
answer that the  line   does  not  pay,
and that,   therefore,   they   cannot reduce them.    Under governiuut ownership all that the  road  would  require
to earn above running expenses would
be the   actual   cost   of   construction,
The Toronto   Globe   thinks   tbat   the
whole system needs revising and   that
the  first step   In it  should be to  kill
subsidy-hunting aB a trade.    It   says:
"If it is felt that   the undertaking of
the construction of   railways   by   the
governmeut Is too radical a   proposal,
measures less liable to awaken opposition may be   chosen.   The  objectionable feature of   the   present system is
he free gift   of public  money to private parsons.    A middle way  may   be
found.      A loan secured by the   property which it helps to create, and provision for full knowledge of tbe financial   arrangements   and   expenditures
thereon,   might   be  regarded as  that
middle  way,    We   have   in the   past
made grants   to   railways  and  given
them almost whatever bonding powers
they   asked   for   without having anything like an accurate  knowledge   of
the probable cost when completed.
sumo that the tariff was perfect, and
he was not prepared to assert that
there were not some cases of inequalities, but, on the whole, tne interests
of the country would be best served
by maintaining the present tariff.
One amendment would, however, be
proposed with respect to beet-root
sugar. The government has been urged to give a bounty  for   the manufac-
._.__. _.._" but   the system
was tried some years ago without success, and the government was not satisfied   that   it   would  be   justified in
granting   any   bounties   now.    As he
had   predicted   in    his     last    budget
speech, the revenue had exceeded   the
850,000,000 mark, and there was an increase  of over 84,000,000 as compared
with the   preceding year.    The   chief
increase,   of  course, was in  customs,
but   it   is   interesting   to   learn,   by
comparing   the   poBtoftice   receipts in
January   with   those    of    the    same
, month of 18(18, that  more  money was
' received under the   reduced   domestic
postage rate of two cents   than   when
the rato  was three cents.   The   total
ordinary   revenue   last year was 851,-
030,004, while   the   total ordinary expenditure was 842,075,371),   which   left
a surplus of 88,054,715 on June 30 last
as the result of the  operations of  the
I year.    This   was   the   largest surplUB
which   has ever   been known   in   the
history of the Dominion,    There have
been large expenditures on account of
railways   and   public   works, and the
extraordinary outlay  involved by   tbe
South   African   contingents,   and   it
would therefore not have been surprising if the year had witnessed a  large
addition   to   the   public    debt,   Mr.
Fielding was,   however, able to make
the statement   that all these expend i
turcs had been provided for, and a re-1
duction of 8779,030 made  in  the debt. >
Coming   to     the   current  year,   Mr.
Fielding announced  that up to March
10 last the revenue   bad been 834,042.-
177���an increase of 81.237,003 over the
corresponding   period   of  last year-
while the   expenditure  for the   same
period had been  827,731,050.    He estimated  that   the   total   reveia  .        to
June 30 would be  $53,750,000   or   81,-
730,000 in excess of last   year.    When
the   year   closed   he   estimated   that,
including supplementary estimates yet
to be brought down, the total expenditure would be   840,000,000, and in all

The citizens of Montreal have got
themselves into a nice mess. A large
loan was necessary for permanent
street work, but the council voted it
down owing to sectional jealousy.
The people should promptly bounce

of 80,390,000.   The total   expenditure
chargeable   for   capital, the  minister
expected,   would     reach    810,700,000,
and, deducting from this the existing
surplus   and   sinking   fund  it  would
probably involve   an   addition to  the
public debt of 81,800,000.    It wus   too
soon, Mr. Fielding  thought,   to  talk
of the next fiscal year,   beginning  on
July 1, but  estimates   totalling   8fi0,-
.98,-21   had   already    been     brought
I down.    In   addition   to railway   subsidies   81,000,000   would   be    required
for   bounties   owing   to   the development of the   iron and steel   industry, I
and be wonld not be surprised if  the
latter sura did not turn out somewhat
larger.    As to the   revenue, the   most
sanguine   Supporters  of   the   government do not anticipate   that the rapid
increase,  which   has marked  the past
three   or   four   years  will   continue.
Doubtless   there   will be a   period   of
rest, but he would   be   a   disgruntled
and   pessimistic    individual    indeed
who would refuse to  take  cognizance
of the  fact   that Canada  is  enjoying
great prosperity   at the  present   time
and that it has a   magnificent future.

The city council has acted very
properly we think In refusing to endorse the new School Bill in its present form. Nothing cuuld be more
reasonable than to insist that the
council should have representation
upon the school board in order that
the exponditnres on education may he
doalt with- fairly.

abroad   that   there Ib an   alliance between the government and the   C.   P.
It. for the purpose of  converting  this
province into an almost exclusive preserve for tho railway company should
by   any   act of  the administration be

discover   that   they had  made a serious   mistake.   If   it has  been   determined to kill   the Crow's Nest Southern   Hallway   Bill,   it might as  well
be   done   openly.   Those   responsible

Berlin, March 30.���In German official circles, it is asserted that Britain
and Russian guards still occupy the
land in controversy at Tien Tsin and
that satisfactory adjustment of the
matter may be expected. Tbe press
does not consider the Tien Tsin incident vital. All the papers express a
belief that Great Britain will yield.
The Vossische Zeitung says that England cannot afford to engage in a serious conflict with Russia.
Tien Tsin, Mareh 30.���In addition
to Austrian*, outposts from the lines
of communication are coming in to be
ready in case of necessity. The British are under arms to prevent the set ���
tlement being rnshed, but they do
not anticipate such extremes.
l'cikn, March 30.���The British reinforcements consisting of ninety
marines, which arrived at Tien Tsin
last night from Takii torts to replace
the India guards on the disputed
lands, are expluned as due to a fear
lest any incident arising out of the
Russo-British land question should
cause tbe French troops, whose conduct has given much trouble, to precipitate a collision. The British commander desires to have enough troops
in Tien Tsin to preserve order in the
streets. General Bailloud left here
this morning to inquire into the conduct of the French troops at Tien
Tsin. At today's conference of the
foreign ministers, general matters
were discussed and no conclusions
were arrived at.

LAMP IN MEXICO
Undone By Coffee Poiso_ing.
Down In the City of Mexico, in the
country that raises its own coffee, I
tbey have plenty of stomach trouble
and nervous headaches brought on by
coffee drinking.
A lady writing from there says, "I
bave used oo*ee for a long time and
was inordinately fond of it. At any
time I would cheerfully have given
up" all the balance of my meal If necessary, in order that I might bave
the coffee, but I aequired a jvietohed,
myddy, .bloW^y complexion, had prolonged attacks of excruciating nervous headaches, was troubled with insomnia, and finally complete nervous
prostration, that horror of horrors.
I wm compelled to give up coffee
lot It was>b�� poison that worked my
undoing, then I concluded to take on
Postnm Food Coffee. I did not believe in It and knew I would not like
it, for I eonid not bear to think of
aeytniug that was to take the place
oifmy beloved ooffee.
I was driven to despair by Illness
aid willing to, try jmost anything to
obtain relief. Imagine my eurprlse
whep I made Postnm Cereal Coffoe-ac-
eording to dlreetlona and liked It >���
well as any coffee I ever drank.
So tbe problem was solved. 1 began
to improve lo health, could sleep
well nigbtf ��� my beadoehee disappeared
and 1 kept gaining in flesh, until I
went from IU pounde to 1B0. and I am
bow perfectly well and feel to. I
have been able to do an enormous
amount ot extra work that would
bare been .absolutely Impossible under
the old conditions.

tbe Marion, and,from participating in
the proceods of ore already moved.
Chaplin Ib the registered owner of a
half interest in the Marion.
THE CITY'S STAND���
The text of the message wired to
Victoria in regard to the views of the
city council on the proposed amendments to tbe school bill as stated in
yesterday's Miner, aro as follows:
"In the opinion of this council section 14 should be amended so as to
give the council representation on the
school board or control of the expenditure. Section 7 should certainly
stand. Section 0 should provide for a
new election of the whole board.
(Signed on behalf of the couneil),
Frank Fletcher, mayor."
NEW PASTIME SUGGESTED���
A number of enthusiastic members
of the curling club have brought forward an interesting suggestion in the
shape of a proposition to form a bowling club for the summer season. In
the east bowling haB become very
popular, particularly among curlers,
the two games resembling each other
in their essential points of play.
Bowling also forms a pleasant sport
for those who desire an outdoor pastime without heavy physical exertion.
The expense attached is comparatively
light once a suitable green is secured.
It is probable tlie matter will be
brought up at the meeting of the
curling ulub on Friday night.
LACROSSE NOTES-
The lacrosse enthusiasts who talk
of reorganizing the Nelson club have
concluded to tuke no action in this
direction until there is some likelihood of other teams being organized
In the district. Unless this eventuates
it would be useless to revive the
game here, because of the fact that it
would be impossible to arrange for
games.
FRATERNAL FUNERAL���

McNair will take place this afternoon

LAYING A SEWER���

work on Baker street laying a sewer
between the corner of Falls street
aDd the Sherbrooke hotel. The necessity for the work is n. p_rt.--ilarly
pressing at this time but as a considerable fill is to be maoe on that
section of Baker street the council
deemed it wiser to go ahead with the
work than to wait until laterj when
the amount of excavating wouldj be
considerably greater,
ALBANI AND COMPANY-
Madame Albani,    who   will  appear

the other members of her this  season
company���Douglass    Powell,   Nachez
Brossa  and   Frank   Walkis.   All  the
artists composing Mme. Albani's support, as  will  be noticed, are  people
new to Canada; they are  nevertheless
individually eminent in their   respective spheres.   Muiiel   Foster has been
a  great   favorite at the Albert  hall,
Queen's   hall,   and   "Monday   Pops"
in London, her   rich   con ralto  voice
challenging  comparison    with; Clara
Butt.   Douglas   Powell, the   baritone

by the late Sims Reeves, who   in   1891
engaged him   for a   provincial   tour.
Mr.   Powell     studied   in     Frankfort
with   Stockhausen,   and subsequently
in Paris   with   Bouliy and  S'briglia.
Trivador Nachez, the Russian   violinist, has been decorated   by nearly  all
the   ruling   monarchs,   and   there   is
scarcely  a   court in Europe where he
has not  appeared   by  command���notably befire the   late   Queen   Victoria
on no   fewer   than   five  occasions, at
Berliu   before   the   Kaiser   Wllheim,
twice at Weisbaden   before the  King
and     Queen   of   Denmark, the  King
and Queen   of   Sweden   and   Norway,
the Duke of Saxe-Cobourg and  Gotha,
and many other notables.    M. Brossn,
the flautist, comes especially   to play-
the obligato to  one of Mme. Albani's
numbers;    and    the       accompanist,
Frank   Walkis, has been   continually
en tour with the madame  since  their
first association in '03.   The company
is   booked for but one concert in   this
city, appearing  at the opera house on
the 1.1th of April.

that all lands   deeded to railroads   in
the shape of subsidies   are still to   be

and the amendment is made retro.peo-
