LABOR
CONVENTION
It Was A Most Harmonious
And Businesslike
Gathering.
Several   Important Resolutions Adopted.���The
Executive.
Kamloops, April 17.��� The convention cloEed its lahor last night just
before midnight liy completing tho
platform, drawing up a set of resolu- i
tions and electing an executive for
permanent organization.
Up to the last everything was carried out in perfect harmony, and there
was every sign of a determination to
holu together.
The oflicers elected represented the
miners, typographical, boilerinakers,
aud railroad unions, but of seven,
three are from tho upper country,
three from the const and one from
Kamloops.
Tne plat foi m was adopted and roar-
ranged in the afternoon, leading Socialists deilaring themselves satined
and willing to accept , the decision of
the majority.
Tho following resolutions ware
passul:
l Tnat all school books should be
printed in the province.
;. Condemning provincial attorney-
general and minister of justice for
inaction in enforcing the alien law,
and asking that action should he made
compulsory.
:i. That Canadian telegraphs should
bu asHuiuuu by tne government.
4. Dominion government to legalize
the union label.
5. Provincial government to place
union label on all its printing.
ti. Condemning Sunday lahor.

today.
men, recruited nt IMeiboro, will accompany them.
The conrl of appeal today gave
judgment in u case respecting the
const! tu tonality of the Lords' Day e it
of Ontario. The decision, Chief Justice Armour dissenting, sustains the
law in icgaril to the prohibition of
Sunday sales, Sunday labor excursions, and streets cars, but holds that
the provincial act doia not apply to
corporations operating exclusively
under Dominion franchise, nor to individual   employees   of   corporations.
The latter exception "ill probably
greatly nullify the working of the
act.
Lieut.-Col. Pellatt, who will command the Canadian contingent, whioh
will attend the coronation,lias offered
to tend the bugle band of the Queen's
Own Hide corps he commands, al his
own expense.
BUDGET ON MONOAY.
A TITANIC   BATTLE.
Canadian Pacific Has Foe-nun   Worthy
of Its Steel.
Montreal, April 17.���Tho acquisition oi the Ottawa, Northern and
Western linos by the Canadian Pacilic
Hallway company, which is practi-
oally an accomplished fact,is an event
whose tremendous import and significance were entirely unrealized by the
journals ia which the announcement
was made for the flrot lime to the
public recently.
It marks the beginning ol the grimmest and (iercost struggle that has yet
been ktown in the history of rail
roading and of   commerce.
t is the preliminary to the first
round in the grapple of giants for the
transportation of the present and potential commerce of Canada to the
markets of tbe world���the giants being the Canadian Pacific railway company on the one hand and thc Vanderbilt capitalists of the United States on
the other.

BULLER IS HIT HARD.
Official   Dispatches   Show     That   He
Seriously Blundered.
London, April 17.���All the official
dispatches referring to the defeat bus-
tained by the British troops under
Gen. Buller at Spion Kop, Natal, on
January 14, 190U, we-e given out this
morning. These hitherto unpublished
dispatches merely emphasize how
hopelessly muddled were the prcpar-
alions for that engagement. The
controversy between Gen. Buller and
tlen. Sir Charles Warren is proved to
have been an even more bitter one
than previously hinted at while a new
extract from one of Lord Robert's despatches brings additional ccasure on
Gen. Buller.
Lord Roberts declares that Gon.
Buller's endeavor to pnt the responsibility for the defeat, on Gen. Warren
was not justifiable.
Roberts holds that it was Buller's
duty to intervene when he saw that
things were going wrong. This remark was caused by a dispatch from
Buller in which he says: "1 saw no
attempt on the part of Warren to
either grapple with the situation or
command his force himself. We lost
our chance by Warren's slowness. He
seems to me to be a man who can do
well what ho can do himself, but,who
cannot command. I can never put him
again in an independent command.
I ought to havo assumed command
myHelf when 1 saw things were not
going well, I blame myself now fir
not doing so.'
nave discredited the latter with thc
troops, which was an especially serious matter, as if Uuller had been
shot Warren would have succeeded to
the supreme command.
The question of the responsibility
for the actual retreat from Spion Kop
is shrouded in a maze of despatches
proving that a mistake had been made
in sending out a heliograin and that
there was a general desire to shirk the
onus.
message to th
them  of the
I United States but warning tbem tbey]
I most deliver up the assassins of the |
American Boldicrs. The general i'c-
mined the dattos that the island of
I Mindano had passed into the possession of the United Staled by the
treaty of Paris and that the Americans intend to explore the country
and build roads and otherwise occupy
it, peaceably if possible, but that
they will not hiook interference on
the part of the native thirls. Thc
general added that the Americans
would not interfere with religion, but
will unfailingly protect the American
civil and military officials in tho discharge of their duties. A force of
1,200 men under Col, Baldwin will
start on April 2.1th from Malalmngo
for Lano loavlng behind a reserve of
000 men.
Gen. ChafTee is sending the transport Hancock to Mindano. in case tho
dattos resist, which seems probable,as
they muster a total oi 20,000 men, of
whom 000 sre armed with rides. The
remainder are spoarmen and bolo
men. These natives are a different
breed of lighters from the Tagals of
Luzon. They are religous lanatics,
to whom death while fighting is regarded as being a passport to heavcu.
Tne American officials hope however, to avert a crisis.
TO BE TRIED FOR TREASON.
Witnesses Brought From Africa to Appear Against Lynch.
London, April 17.���Although there
is no indication that Col. Arthur
Lynch, who formerly fought on the
Boer side in tho South African war
and who was elected to represent Gal-
way City in parliament in November
last iia�� any intention of placing
himself within reach of the British
courts, the government is bringing
witnesses from South Africa to testify
in support of the oharges of treason
against Col. Lynch.
Lewis Handley, an American by
birth, but a naturalized llritish subject, and a farmer in the vicinity of
Glencoe, Natal, landed in England
this morning. He says Col. Lynch
was with tho leader of a Boer force
principally composed of Irishmen
whicn raided his farm in 1HOO,0 onfiR-
cated his stock and othor moveables.
Lynsh informed Handley tnat he was
a British subject.
PEACE REPORTED NEAR.
Daily Mail Says British Offers Will
Likely Be Accepted.
London, April is.���Tbe Daily Mail
claims to havo authority to announce
that a basis of peaco has been practi
eally agreed upon at Pretoria, but it
says that some little time will elapse
before tbe details of the plan can be
perfected.
The paper adds that upon finding on
Wednesday that the British government refused to modifyjits terms with
regard to amnesty, banishment and a
responsible government, the BoM delegates met again on Thursday. The
British decision practically leaving
them the alternative of accepting the
British terras or breaking up the conference was then communicated to
them and the delegates proved more
reasonable. Wten Loid Milner, the
British high commi-sioner in South
Africa, promised thc delegates one or
two seats in tbe legislative council
subject to tbe approval of the government and pending the restoration of a
responsible government they practically agreed to accept tke llritish
terms.
Some details, continues tbe Dailv
Mail, which are not likely to create
difficulty still remain to be settled.
Lord Milner has summoned an Australian expert from Johannesburg,
who Is to assist in estimating the cost
of rebuilding and restocking the Boer
farms. The delegates,[the paper concludes, have acted so far quite independently of   their   reprenntatives   in
Holland.
REBELS MAKE PROGRESS.
Thirty Chineso Towns Held and Insurgent Well Armed.
Hong Kong, April 17.���A Chinese
banker who lied from the province
Kwang Si and has arrived here, says
the rebels in that province hold over
30 towns and villages, that they arc

huve placarded the countrv with announcements that the present dynasty
has sold parts of China lo foreign
powers. These posters urge the people
to resist the collection of tuxes for the

Crimes Act proclamation issued last
night by the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Earl Cardigan. lie said that an
infamous conspiracy was on foot In

Redmond continued, stood ready to

Wyndham, Ihe chief secretary foi Ireland,to change his policy, but ii he
continued would meet him face to fuco
and give blow for hlow. Their answer to his coercion of Ireland would
be to harden their hearts, strengthen
their organization aud compel redress.
Mr. Wyndham replied that while it
was true that there was a eomparn-
t've absence in Ireland of crime
against the person, the lives of peoplo
were made miserable by Intimidation
and boycotting, Tho government wns

A motion for adjournment to discuss coercion, made liy iir. Redmond,

cly hopeless and ale   now
bring   a    close   to   thc
PEACE IN SIGHT.
(In October Oth, 1800, or a little over
two   years   and   a   half  since,   Pani
Kruger,    president of   the  Transvaal
issued his historic ultimatum,   which
was framed for the   purposo of   deliberately   bringing   on   hostilities.     It
demanded    that   the   llritish    troops
massed on the border of tho Transvaal
bo withdrawn, that ah rotnforcemenU
which had arrived within tho previous
year   should   leave  South Africa  and
that those which weie then ou the sea
should be sent   bach   without   disembarking.       Falling    a    satisfactory
answer within 4S hours   "the   Transvaal   government   nit], with groat regret, le compelled to regard the action
of   Her   Majesty's   government   as  a
formal declaration of war, for the consequence   of   which   it will not hold
tself responsible."
The answer despatched the next day
(Oct. 10) through   Sir   Alfred   Milner
was: "Ilei Majesty's government have
received with deep regret   the peremptory demands of the government of tbe
Mouth Afiican   republic,   conveyed   in
your telegram of   the   8th of   October.
Vou will   inform  the government ol
tfle South   African   republic iu   reply
that the conditions demanded   by   the
government of the   Mouth    African re-
puhlic   are   snob   that. Her   Majesty's
government   deem   it   impossiole    to
discuss."
Such wan the beginning of the war
that has resulted in two and a half
years of fighting and which has led to
the eliminaitou of Boer influence in
Africn and established British
dominance thero firmly and forever.
At the outset of the war the Iloers
ol the two republics were agkressive
and victorious. They invaded llritish
territory and drove tha small forces
opposed to tbem into entrenched
positions and besieged them at Mafe-
king, Kimberley and Ladysmith.
Besides this they drove back at
Colenso and Magersfontein tho commands sent to relieve these places
For a time the fortunes of war
went against the Uritish, but the
garrisons at Matching. Ladysmith and
Kimberley made heroic resistance
and hold out against the fierce attacks
made hy the Iloers in the ir endeavors
to storm these places.
Lord Roberts finally took command,
succeeding Mir Redveis Uuller, and
Kimberley, Ladysmith and Maieking
were relieved. We all remember well
how the people of the Kootenays
celebrated tho relief of Mafeking;
General Cronje was forced into a corner and captured with all of his command, Pretoria, the capital of tbe
Transvnu] was captured and President
Kruger compelled to lice to Europe,
where be aud some of the other agents
of the republics have been unsuccessfully endeavoring for the past year
and a half to induce the intervention
on the part of some one of the powers,
which one they did not seem to care.
After tbe taking of Pretoria Lord
Roberts was succeeded by Lord Kitchener as commander in chief oi tbe
Mouth African forces. Though the
back of the Hoer lesistanco was
broken with the fall of Pretoria and
despite the fact tbat no very large
foico of burghers has since been
assembled to confront tho imperial
troops still tho task assigned to Lord
Kithencr has been one full of diSlcul-
tieH. The Iloers split up int'i small
commandoes under Dewet, Delarey,
Botha, et al, und have succeeded
in prolonging the btruggle by means
of guerilla Warfare. Lord Kitchener,
although his task was a most difficult
one has kept extending a system of
blockhouses and by placing tbe
women, children and other non-
combatants iu concentration camps
and other methods has succeeded in
crowding the commandoes so closely
and harrassing them so severely tbat
tbey finally realized tbat tbo  struggle
was complet
seek i ng to
hostilities.
Considering that the Hoots had been
preparing for tbe struggle for Kev. ral
years, the nature of the country, the
difficulties ���Jiicotintered iu transporting supplies nnd munitions of war,
the distances over which troops had to
he transported from where tbey were
cnlited to where they could fight, the
intimate acquaintance of the enemy
witli the countri'.the friendship of the
Dutch in the Cape Colony witb the
rebels, the stubhorlicss with which
the lioors oarried on the war, and all
of tho circumstjees, the imperial
troops have accomplished wonders,
and aru worthy of great cimmcndn-
tion for the bravery and pcisistcnce
which they have shown. The method
of warfare adopted by the Hoers was
something new to their experience
and at tho onset some mistakes were
made by the llritish soldiery ns the
result of meeting a foe under conditions which they wero unused to.
The cost of tbe war has been grout
iu money and blood but the spoils of
victory will be large and worth all
tbey oost. All feai of Hoer dominance in Mouth Atiica in at un ond.
and will never again be a menace to
British interests thero. Uy putting
down the Iloers, we believe, the way
has heen successfully paved for llritish dominance over a slill larger portion of Africa and it will finally result in ijnperial ownership of the
larger portion of the continent whicb
is one of great natural resources. The
British possessions in northeastern,
eastern and southern portions of
Africa will expand and finally be
joined. The possessions in Western
Africa will also grow till' altogether
they will embiace the major portion
of the continent, wbich will form a
valuable heritage for the Birtish
people nnd one tbat will compensate
ibem manifold for what hus been
spent in carrying on the war.
Hitches have arisen as to terms, but
that tho Boers will be gcnerouslv
treated is shewn in the Speech ol rir
Michael Hicks-Reach in the commons
on Monday when be referred to the
government's intention to restock the
Hoer as well us the colonial farms.
He also praised the valor of the Boers
and expiessed a hope for subsequent
friendships between Britain and Boer
and waB cheered by the members.
Tbe war has beon most chivalrously
conducted and will serve as a model
for future wais. The British army
while fighting the Boers has beon
feeding and oaring for 115,000 of the
wives, children and adult male relatives of the Boers, who are in arms in
the field, or have been dep orted to St
Helena and other places where they
cannot use tlieir guns against tbe
British. Not only are those in the
concentration camps fed and clothed,
but the children are being educated.
A recent report of the officer iu charge
of the Orange River Colony Refugee
camp says that out of 13,000 children
of school age (between 0 and 14) there
are at present over 10,000 on the different school rolls. Tho teaching is
non-political,and with the exception of
hymn and a Bible lesson in Dutch at
the commencement of each session,
work is entirely conucted in the English tongue.
When terms of peace are once
arranged, and they should be concluded shortly, thev will be alike
honorable to both Briton and Boer,
"and with the humane measures outlined by Sir Miohael Hicks-Beacb the
two erstwhile Dutch republics will
soon become loyal British Colonies.

PLATINUM IN PLACE.
Platinum in paying quantities has
been found in the Similaltmeen
country. Samples of the ore from the
Diamond B. and Olympia cliiinis, on
Kennedy mountain, were sent to a
Newark, N. J., firm to be tested, and
they report tliat the ore samples contain platinum in commercial quantities. The finding of platinum in
place has caused no little excitement
and thero is a rush to stake claims
adjoining those in which the platinum is found. Should the deposits
prove as extensive as it is thought
they are there is no doubt that tbo
working of them will prove profitable.
It has long been known that platinum in considerable quantities existed on tbe Tulameen fork of the
Similakmeen river, on the east side of
the Cascade mountains. The area
where it i. most plentiful is in tne
valley of State creek and along the
Tulameen river below its tributary,
Eagle creek.
Nearly all of the commercial olati-
ncm comes from Russia where' the
productive districts are located ilong
the eastern watershed of the L'rals, in
the eastern portion of Perm, in
Kasan, and on the western wutershed
further south, A few vears ago the
largor portion of tbe Russian platinum came from the district of Nijni-
Tagilsk, east of the city of Perm j bnt
now the largest 6Upply comes from
the (loroblagodat and Biserk districts,
about 130 miles further north and
northeast of tho town Nijni-Tagilsk.

if mi'i '���������nil ii imi in lint-Muni umii
and the produotive platinum ground,
about 2.000 square miles in area, is
found along the Iss and the Veya and
on the Tura. The platinum ia found
in the beds of tho streams and above
water level.
Platinum, says Professor J. F.
Kemp, of tbe United States Oeological
survey, is very spareely distributed
in its mother rock and tbe chances of
finding it in sufiloiant quanti'ics to
mine aro small. He thinks that large
and permanent placers are to be looked for in very old land areas which
have been subjected to protracted
degradation and concentration.
It is evident, therefore, tbat tbe finding of platinum in ledges in the
Similkameen is an important event
and as the rivers in the vicinity of tbe
find have platinum is their sands and
banks it, is probable that tbe deposits
are extensive and can bo mined to
advantage.
CHINESE EXCLUSION RILL.
The United States senate has
adopted a Chinese exclusion bill submitted hy Mr. Piatt, of Connecticut,
in lieu of tbe more, drastic measure
prepared by tbe senators and representatives of the Pacific coast. Tbo
measure adopted is similar in many
respects to the Oeary exclusion act
which is already in force, witli the
exception that its provisions extend to
the insular possessions of the United
States, and Chinese persons connected
with expositions are to be admitted
and certificates of identifications of
the Chinese in insular professions
like the Philippines are provided for.
The Senate is a conservative body and
represents the railway and commercial interests of the republic more
than the house of representatives,
which is closer to the people, and tho
fact that there was but one dissenting
vote against the bill in tho senate
shows how unanimous is tho sentiment
against the Chinese. The exclusion
bill will new havo to go to the house
where it will be adopted, probably
with some amendments, which will
doubtless be concurred in by tbo
senate.

Ymir
This    Property    Proves  Oood
Prospects Bright.
D. A. Cameron, superintendent of
the Active Gold Mining company, of
Yinir, was in the city yesterday.
Speaking of the work done by this
company, which is operating tde
Union Jack gioup a"">out seven miles
up Porcupine creek, bo says tbat the
results from what has been done during the winter are most satisfactory.
Tho group consists of live claims.
Most of tbe woik has beeu done on
tne tjueen claim, where a tunrel of
'Jo5 feet has been run following the
lead. In the course of this work the
tunnel has passed through an ore
shoot of 80 feet in length and five feet
in width, carefully takon samples
from which shows an average value of
*40 to the ton in gold,silver and lead.
The face of the tunnel now shows an
ore body of five feet. This tunnel will
bo extended Ior 150 feet further before
other development work will be done
on that ledge. The depth already
gained is about 175 teet.
On the Union Jack ef the same
group, another tunnel is boing run
and is in a distance of 170 feet following a lead which is crossing the
main lead of tho property diagonally.
It is expoot that when it has been
continued for 75 feet further the main
lead will be orosscut at a depth of 150
feet. Both the Queen and the Onion
Jaok leads have been explored to a
considerable extent on the suiface and
gold values have been shown.
This group was located by Cameron
and (locdlad in the spring of 1897,and Tftienhone��
since then they have put all their
savings into exploratory work until
last fall, when Cincinnati people
procured an interest and have undertaken to supply the means to keep six
men at work, but the results have been
so good that instead tbey have'
increased the force to eight. The company intends to do considerably moro
work before making arrangements to
put in machinery and to ship ore.
The prospects of Ymir camp were
never so good as they are this spring,
said Mr. Cameron. The people have
been waiting to see what would be I
the result of the development of tbe
Ymir mine at depth, and the ledge in
that mine having been struck at a
depth of 1,000 Ieet, demonstrates that
the ore bodies persist to depth aud it
is generally understood tbat the results there have been satisfactory.
There is scarcely a day but four nr
live parties of prospectors are seen
going out to do assessment work alid
the results have been most cheering.
One of the lujky ones was James
Qraham wbo has the Hlack Ilawk

:' A man who has made something of a
study on this line writes from Iowa
City : " When 1 first tried Otape-Nuts
it was at the table of a prominent
state official and the remarkable taste
attracted me. I afterwards investigated the subject carefully and discovered that Grape-Nuts contains dextrose sugar. 'The starchy part of the
food is transformed into Jstaich sugar
or dextrose. Thoso same results are
produced by the digestive organs hy
tho action of the saliva and the pan
creatio juices on starchy foods. These
facts convinced me that Grape-Nuts is
a natural, pre-digested food and just
what I required and needed.
I had beeu Buffering from a full
feeling after meals and generally
mora or less headache. All this
trouble left when I quit using white
bread, warm biscuits, etc.
It was about this time I came home
fiom school, broken down physically
and mentally. I only weighed 120
pounds. At my earnest request Mother
brgan serving Grape-Nuts every riiea)
and she said had never eaten anything that agreed with tier physical
condition ns did my ''new food," as
she termed it.
In live weeks I weighed 138 pounds,
a gaining of 13 pounds, and I fool so
strong tbat I have been able to do
from 10 to 15 hours of liird work
daily. Mv mind has never seemed so
clear before and I am thoroughly convinced that there is no food like
Grape-Nuts to produco health and a
strong and clear brain.'' Lee Arlington, Box 1755, Iowa Ci,y, la,

VASELINE NO GOOD FOR nAlli.
Dandruff Germ Thrives in It,   as Well
as in all Grouse
A well known Chicago hair specialist invited the Inter Ocean reporter to
come to his offloe and see, nnder a
microscope, how tlie germ that causes
dandruff thrives in vaseline. Tbe
specialist said- tbat all hair preparations containing grease, simply furnish food for the germs and help to
propagate them. The only way to
cure dandruff is to destroy the germs,
and the only hair preparation that
will do that is Newbro's Herpicide.
"Destroy the cause, you remove the
effect." Without dandruff no falling
hair, no baldness. Ask for Herpicide.
It is the only destroyer of the dandruff
