CITY COUNOIL.
A. C. Garde, manager of the Payne
mine, in the Slocan, was at the Phnir
on Sunday. In talking nbout tho
development of the Payno Mr. Harde,
said that the conneotion made aorr.-
pleted last week between No. !> ami
No. 8 levels was, tho most important
work done in the mine for the past
two years. It gives an opportunity
to open up tbe three levels whieh are
being run into the large ore zone
that is unown to exist below No. !>
tunnel, in which hitherto but very
little prospecting haB been done. No.
(I tunnel is being driven on a showing
whijh is encouraging for the future
of the mine. The upraise from No. 8
was driven under engineering instruction a distance of .115 feet to connect
with a shaft sunk 70 feet iiom the No.
5 level and they both met ns even as
possible.    The Payne Is looking well.
In speaking about the concentrator
Mr. Garde said it would bo ready for
operation on May 1. lhe electric
plant, to furnish the power for the
concentrator and fur the drills, is nt
the mine and will soon be in position
and it is anticipated that all thc
machinery will be reBdy to start hy
June 1. Tbe development work is
being pushed with vigor by a force
of lid men.
In regard lo the electrical drills put
into use at the Payne several months
since Mr. Garde suid they had been
doing good work. With the improvements that the company which manufactures the electric drills are ranking
he thought it resonable tbat they
would in the near future be the most
used for mining puri/oses. This type
of diill has only been ou tbe market n
year, aud they certainly have been
successful. They are undergoing a
process of evolution and the outcome
will be an increased effectiveness.
They are not as yet adapted to thc
hard formation, like the diorite of
Rossland, but it the slate and generally less indurated formation of the
Slocan they can be used to advantage.
This is especially the case where the
properties operated are in remote and
inaccessible places where it is difi-
cult and expensive to securo any other
power than electric. There is an
abundance of wator power in the
Slocan which can with a moderate
cost bo turned into electrical energy,
Mr.  3urde concluded.
THE LEAD DELEGATION.
James Cronin, manager of the St.
Eugene, was at tbo Phnir yesterday.
He returned a fow days since from
the East, whither he went in company
witb G. 0. liiichanan and W. H.
Aldridge, as iiipreseutatives of the
Associated boards of trade, to urge
upon the government the necessity o(
laising the duty on pig lead and some
of the manufactured products of lead.
They had interviews with i'remier
Laurier,Minister Cartwright,Fielding,
Templeman and Mnlock. They wished
to have a conference with Hon. Clifford Sifton, but be was not in at the
capital. The premer and the ministers
gave them a cordial reception, a
patient beirlng and went over the
lead question very thoroughly. Tnera
seemed to be a desire on lhe part of
tbe government to do what it could in
the premises, The government, however, Beemed loath to raise the tariff
on the lead, because of the objections
of the farmers, who are disinclined to
pay an advanced price for white lead
for painting, etc., and it was Mr.
Cronin's impression that this is the
only obstacle in the way of granting
the petition whieh thoy presented.
Still, he felt certain, now tbut the
government had a clear understanding
of the question, that something lavor-
able to the silver-lead miners would
result from tne visit. The government
did not, however, commit itself to a
definite promise, but merely said it
would take the question under .ts
most serious consideration.
"Premier       Laurier,"     said    Mr.
Cronin,   "impressod   mo at a wonder-
Steps   Will   lie Taken to Extend   the
City Limits.
At the meeting of the city council
lust evening the first business to come
up was the report of the finance committee for tlie week. Tho committee-
recommended tho payment of accounts
aggregating 8382,25, also the lirst estimate on the addition to the city hall
of $200. The report was received and
adopted.
A petition was received for the
grading of Heudryx street from Silica
to Mill streets, the laying of a six-
foot sidewalk on the south side of
Carbonate street from llendryx to
Cedar streets and tho putting in of aa
electric light at the corner of Carbonate and Cedar streets. This^was referred to the board ol work".
The reports of the city engineer on
the cost of taking into the city limits
that piece of land including the extension of Cedar, Hoovor and Observ-
tory streets was read, giving au estimate us iollows, water raaiti !f(j75 -,
sewer $502; total 81,41-'. Tbe report
of the city assessor ou the subject was
also lead, which estimated tbat the
assessable value of the lauds arid improvements would c.e $23,3a0, and tbat
the rates and taxes would amount to
$'.185 annually. Some discussion followed and it was pointed out that as
it would take a year to have the incorporation put through, if it was to
be done it should bo started at once.
The city would not have to put in any
of the improvements tbis year. It
was decided that tbe necessary steps
should be taken to procure the incorporation of the section mentioned.
Bylaw 10'J, to ohange the name ol
the eastern end of Lake street from
the intersection of Hendryx was intro-
duoed and read the first, second and
third times. The oouncil then went
into committee of the whole and
docided to christen the now street
"Edgewood Road,". The final reading and adoption of the bylaw will be
at the next meeting.
Thu report of the treasurer for the
past quurter was then read and it was
decidea to refer it to the finance committee after which it Bhould be
publihsed.
The mayor informed the council
lhat the work on Cottonwood oreek
was practically finished and the water
of the oreek turned into the now
channel.
Thc couucil then adjourned to meet
immediately as a board ot health, Dr.
McLennan being present.
A communication wns read (rom Dr.
Fagan regarding the enforcement of
certain health regulations pertaining
to milk and other matters.
Aid. Selous called the attention of
the board to the state of Anderson
creek which was used by u number of
people for drinking and domostio purposes, although it ran through a hog
ranch farther up.
It was decided to obtain a formaldehyde generator for thc use of lhe
city medical health officer.
Chinese laundries took up a considerable share of discussion and it was
decided that somo means should be
louud of getting them all together
where the variouB sanitary regulations could bo strictly enforcsd.
The shacks along the foieshore then
came in for their Hhare. A vigorous
plan of campaign against lhe shacks
was planned and it was decided that
at   all   costs   they   must be removed.

Chancellor of the Exchequer Announces Impost on Wheat and Flour to Meet
Cost of the War.
Fraises Gallantry of Boers and Meets Feace

CRIMEAN VETERAN DEAD.
London, Ont., April 14.���James
Crawford, ex-sergeant of the London
police, is dead, of convulsions. He
was a Crimean veteran and was also
at the front during tbe Fenian
troubles of 1886.
in it will be adopted. It is equally
oettaiu that none of these proposals
will meet with the unanimous approval of either side of the house.
More important, perhaps, than the
curious forms of the new taxation, is
the statement made by Sir Michael
Hicks-Beach, the chancellor of lhe
exchequer, that the government had
acceded to tbe Boer demand concerning the restocking.
The chancellor in rising to delivei
the budget speech showed but slight
weakness from bis recent illness, but
the severe strain to whieh the delivery
subjected him was  apparent at times.
Thu house and crowded galleries
awaited almost with impatience until
he lead up to the topie of the hour,
the expenses of the war and the taxes
that it was proposed to levy to meet
this continued heavy expenditure.
The cost of the war for threo years
was ��105,034,000 but in addition to
the hope of repayment fiom the
wealth of tho Transvaal there was
their share of the Chinese indemnity,
which was a very valuable asset and
would probably be devoted to a reduction of tbe war debt.
The Nationalist members received
the reference of tbe chancellor
ironically.
After touching on various details,
thc chancellor turned to thc prospects
of the future. He estimated the expenditure tor the coming year at
��174,000,000. The revenue on tbe
present basis of taxation was ��147,-
785,000 leaving a deticit of ��2l!,8:i4,-
000. This would be increased by ��18,-
51)0,000 by a gratuity to the troops
and bringing the soldieis home, thc
maintenance of the South African constabulary and the cost of the interna-
tion sugar convention, etc., making a
gross deficit of upwards of ��45,000,-
000. War was a costly thing to wage
und a costly thing to terminate. After
tlie war was over there would be the
great expenses of the relief ol the
settlement of two colonies and the
restocking of farms. He hoped that
when durable peace was mado, parliament would be generous and loan
money for restocking the farms, not
only of those who fought on tue
British side but of those who had
been honest eDeinies and whom thoy
now hoped to make friends, and for
railway and other enterprises to serve
to develop the two states. It wbh his
duty not to take a rosy view of the
case but to provide for tbe worst, He
had hopes of a huppy result from the
i-onfercnce in South Africa, but he
had put tbem aside, l'repura'ions (or
the continuance ofthe war was lhe
best gunruntee of peace,
The ohsnccllor ot the exchequer proposed to suspend the sinking fund, reducing the deficit by ��4,500,000 und to
increase, by n penny in the pound,
the income tux, yielding ��2,000,000
increase. From July 1 there would
be a peuny to two-pence i tamp duty
on sight bills, including dividend
warrants und oheeks, yielding
��500,000.
Aftor   mentioning that   he  did   not
propose to interfere with beer, wine,
tea ond sugar, the chancellor said he
must select for indirect taxation au
article practically in universal consumption, the taxation of which
wonld not unduly press uny class.
The ordinary expenditure of the
country,   quite   apart   from the   wur,
lluanco system on a basis equitable
alike to all the taxpayers of the
country. He was of the opinion that
the repeal by lhe late Mr. Lowe of the
import on wheat hnd not realized the
expectations formed at the time. The
effeot of a duty of 3d per 100 weight
on wheat would mean but a very
smull traction of a farthing inorease
in lhe price of the loat und the competition of the bakers was so keen
that any one trying to raise the price
of bread on such a ground would
probably find sucb action not to bis
advantage. Tbe chancellor denied that
the registration of duties on grain
and flour violated the principles of
free' tirade or would increase the cost
ot food
He thought the duly had been recklessly abandoned and declared the
remission did not reduce the price of
food. He therefore proposed an import duty of 3d per 100 weight on all
grain, with a corelative duty of 8d per
100 weight on flour r.nd meal. The
total yield of tllis duty was estimated
at ��2,050,000 bringing the total estimate of the revenue from the new
taxation to ��5,11:0,000. Of the balance
ol the deficit, the chancellor propused
to borrow ��32,000,000 and to find the
rest by drafts on the exchequer. He
feared lhat the duty on grain would
arouse prejudices strong and deep and
that the cry of taxing the food ot the
people would ouce more be raised, but
he was convinced thut by uo other
form of indirect taxation could so
much money by any possibility be
found with so little effect on the
article on which it was imposed, and
with so little injury to the trade and
commerce of the country.
Tne chancellor of the exchequer was
loudly cheered by the occupants of tho
ministerial benches as he concluded.
Sir William Vernon Harcourt
(Liberal) was the next speaker, lie
corroborated the view expressed by thc
cbancollor of the exchequer that the
duty on wheat would meet witn
strong objections. This taxation ol
the people's lood, he suid, would bring
home to the people tho lesson of the
war. Wheat was a thing of necessity
and ho was opposed to u return to the
fallicics of protection, Sir William
declared it the most objectionable proposal by far made to tbe country in
many years. This passion for expansion of territory and the annexation of
independent countries involved ruinous expenditures which, he believed,
would have to be defrayed by tho British taxpayers exclusively, as the
security of the Transvaal would not
in any way meet the expenditures.
The gigantic fortunes made in the
Rand hnd not been produced by the
mines but by projectors selling
worthless mines to the Ignorant and
trrdulous.
It Is learned on excellent authority
that the principal provision of the
budget, namely the treasury loan of
e.32,01)0,000, upon whieh Sir Michael
Hicks-Beach was remarkably reticent,
has a serious beating upon the pcaco
question. There is a very strong
beliel that owing to thc expelled
early termination of the war, this
loan will never be needed. Before
suuply passes the peace negotiations
will probably have reached sucb shape
that a diminuation of today's estimate
can be announced. All accompanying
! incidents appear to indicate that the
was greatly increasing and in view of I government   has   itrong   hopns   of   a
progressing   at   Pretoria,    it will   bo
ready and determined to push the war
j to a finish, should the llritish terms of |
I peace be refused.
Sir Michael Hicks-Reach is seldom
dramatic, but when he referred today
Ito the government's intention to restock the Boer us well as the colonial
farms his voice rose to an eloquent
pitch. His gesture, as be spoke in
praise .of the valor ol lhe Boers and
expressed his hopes for subsequent
friendship between Briton and Boer
look the house with him and tho
cheers, especially (rom the opposition,
prevented tne speaker from conl inning
his speech for several moments.
During this pause, the chancellor of
the exchequer turned towards Mr.
Chamberlain, the colonial secretary,
who sat pile and motionless and palpably none too pleased at this official
recantation of his "unconditional surrender" formula. The opinions gathered by the Associated Press in interviews with members of the House of
Commons indicate tbe existence ol a
considerable divergency of ideas with
regard to the new taxation which
although comparatively unimportant,
in the rovenuo it will yield, affects
importaut economic principles, which
have hitherto been held rather scared
by certain schools of English
politicians.
Sir Charles Dilke voiced tbe opinion
of many of theBe when hi! said: "The
budget is a roveision to protectionist
principles and although only trivially
so, 1 Bhall oppose it on those
grounds."
John Redmond said: "1 can only
speak from the Irish point of view.
We regard the whole thing oh a wni
tax and Ireland has never approved of
the war. We shall naturally light it
for that reason. Tbe protection of
Irish agriculture is a good thing but
this duty on flour and corn is too
small to do any good. Indeed it will
merely raise the price of cheap meals
imported from America and largely
used by the Irish peasantry, besiocs
making bread dearei.
One of the great disaduvntages appreciated on al! sides is the small
amount Sir Michael Hicks-Roach
raises by direct taxation and thu huge
loan of ��82,000,000 which he hud left
to posterity,
John Burns was particularly vehement in speaking of the budget to a
representative of the Associated Press.
"It iB a eovardly budget," lie declared, "for a bullish war. It devolves upon the very poor tho cost of
aggrandizing the adventurous rich. It
taxes the industrious producer at
home for thc prodigal speculator
abroad."
Henry Norman'voiced tlie opinion of
tlie Imperialist liberals when lie said:
'You cannot call it protection. It is
a tariff for revenue only und America
will have no cause for retaliation.
But it is irritating without being
compensating. Of course it will pass.
If the government told its supporters
to eat their lints they would do So
without a mumur. The regulation
concerning checks is a slavish imitation of the American action during
the Spanish-American war."
Outside of the House of Commons
the income tux and the increase in the
amount of Stamps to he. placed on
checks have crested the nrist comment. Tin: "man in the street" is
gem cai ly very angry over both these
issues.

SKEENA LANDS.
A small pamphlet Is being sent out
from the provincial government otlices
describing the forming and grazing
lands along the Skeena river, and
particularly Bulkloy valley, situated
about 200 miles inland from the
mouth of that river. The ".district is
part of that mentioned in Tbo Miner
of Saturday last. Tho reading matter
is a condensation cf the reports of the
surveyors who made exploratory surveys for the government in 1891 and
1895. There is evidently, from the
reports, a large area of land in that
portion of the province that will
eventually become the homes of prosperous settlers.
Tbe closing paragraphs of tho worn
mention that a man in Vancouver is
secretary of the proposed colony and
that the colouists will get 100 acres
of land by living upon it for rive years
and by doing improvements to the
amount of the piesont purchase price
of the lands according to the Land
Act.
Why this Vancouver man becomes
the secretary of the colony und what
is to become of tbe remaining 220
acres of the preemption of 320 acres
to which each settler is eutitled, are
questions which require further elucidation. Is this man working on
salary or is he to get the 220 acres?
One paragraph of tho conditions
reads: "No one included in the concession shall be other than a practical
farmer," Bnd another paragraph:
"The concessions contained in the
foreglong refer, so far, to iho original
100 settlers who will take up land in
the valley under the conditions
aforesaid." If tlio Vancouver man is
employed on salary to exert himself
in the procuring of Bettlers for this
district tho step taken by the provincial government seems a good one, but
if all the land of this valley has been
granted to a syndicate or company
which is to roeeive the remaining 220
acres in each pre-emption on condition
of getting settlers, and the whole valley has been reserved for thorn, the
plan adopted to obtain such settlers is
deidedly reprehensible. Tho original
exploratory surveys were made nt considerable cost, by money belonging to
tile people of the provinco and that
the good results should thus ho practically given away to bo exploited for
the benelit of individuals Ih not in tbe
line of getting value received, it is
giving individuals the results of public expenditure. If tho government
wish Bulk ley valley settled tho reasonable way senilis to bo to announce
the attractions it has to olfer, to build
the wagon roads promised in the
pamphlet uud to let those who huve
the desire lo go there do so nnd reap
all thu advantage that can bo leaped
ns the result of tho hardships aud Isolation they endure in tho early days
of settlement.
The brochure is printed hy the
King's printer; Is thi". also dono tn
heip a syndicate to obtain more than
a hull of an nien wbich is described
as ouo of the richest in the province?
Tho whole scheme is oue on which
moro light in needed, and some member of tiie legislature would be doing
a service by Inquiring into nil the
details of this noncosslou and of the
relation of the Vancouver man to tho
provincial government..
will   see   that   the     risk   is  thereby
I minimized."
The above announcement is a part
of a prospectus   recently issued   by   a
I London, Canada, promoter for a mining company which lie is pushing. It
is in marked contrast to the glowing
promises held out in somo of the mining prospectuses wbich bave in times
past been put in circulation. There
is no false pretense about it.
nere in tho west most of those who
invest in shares of new companies
fully recognise that they are taking
chanjes, and that it is not overy prospect that makes a mine. There is an
element of chance In investments of

knowledgo of the conditions. The
western man generally kows something
of mines, and is better able because of
this knowledge to make investments
in them with more probability of
success, and is not so often imposed
on by the wildcatter. On the other
hand, in the east there is not as intimate a knowledge of mining and the
promoter of fraudulent mining
scheme has in the past been quite
successful nnd numbers bis victtns by

dishonest operators may be traced the

to look over the prospectus above

A FOOLISH RUMOR.
A communication appears in tbe
Cranbrook Herald signed Observei
which contains the statement that it
is rumored the coal mined at
Morrissey is to be hauled across
the lino and manufactured into coke
at a point near Gateway, Idaho. It
may be true that such a rumor has
been put into circulation by designing
persuns, but that eoal will be hauled
from Morrissey to Gateway and turned
into coke there would be an operation that would not pay. It takes
about two tons of coal to make one of
coke, and what would be the use of
hauling two tons of coal over tbe distance from Morrissey to Gateway, unloading it from the cars, putting it
through the coking ovens, reloading it
on the cars and sending it to points
where it can be marketed when the
coal cau be taken from the mines at
Morrissey to ovens there, coked, placed
aboard the cms and hauled to the
point where it is to bo consumed? In
the ane case there is but one ton to
haul and in the other there is two
tons. In the one event there would
be fieight paid on two tons and in
the other on only one. The management of a coal mine and coke manufacturing establishment guilty of such
an act of folly would soun be removed
and one with some business sense put
iu its place. A denial has been ob
mined from an authoritative source
that there is no foundation wiiutevei
for tha rumor.

luindlod while ho was being intitiated
into a court of the Modern Woodmen
of America. When ho was placed
astride of the lodge goat the members
who were inducting bim twisted his
leg and injured it so seriously that it
had to be amputated. Mr. Lewis has
sued tho court for 850,000 damages.
This wus a more trying experience
than thnt which .lames Neill, actor,
passed through when in the Spokane
lodge of Elks. Mr. Neill says he was
subjected to gieat indignities, such as
being struck from behind, whioh no
gentleman should submit to, but in
his case no bones were broken. lie-
sides it is claimed tbat he made a
mountain out of a molehill and exaggerated the severity of the ordeal
whieh he was subjected to. In the
case of Mr.Lewis he should he giveu a
verdict for the full amount for which
he sued. While it is pioper to have a
little fun at the expense of tbe
novitiate when this becomes exug

dangerous to life and limb, those wbo
indulge in such practieos should be
severely punished.

tbat it occurred on tbe Packman claim
owned by John Jackman. The claim
was located four years ago and since
that time considerable work has been
done on it The lead is fourteen leet
wide, of free milling gold quart/., and
tho highest assny of it beforo last
week was $6. An assay taken then,
however, gave a return of i. to the
ton. In appearance the ore from
wbich this last assay was taken does
not differ thc slightest from the rest.
Whether it is only a small pocket will
not be known for a lew dajs yet.
The sinking of the shaft in tbe
Poorman mine was finished last Friday at a depth of :t20 feet, and drifting has now been started at the 150
and 300 foot levels. The last 100 feet
of the shaft was sunk in very quick
t;me, taking only 42 days, notwithstanding that the rock is a very hard
granite. A quantity of timber was
shipped down by teams yesterday over
the Nelson-Granite road to be used in
timbering the drifting. The mine is
looking very good.

What Has Ueon Done in Minnesota to
Curtail Liquor Influences.
B. H. lln.tey, of Minneapolis, gave
an interesting address in the Congregational ohurch on Sunday evening
after the regular service. The building was well filled with members of
that and other congregations. Mr.
Iiattev desoribed in an entertaining
way what had been done by the Anti-
Suloon league in the state of Mi nuc-
Bote. The objoct of the league was
not necessarily prohibition CO much as
the union of all the opponents of
saloons, and its influence was directed
largely toward municipal and state
legislation. One objeot of the league
was to agitate in favor of temperance
without unduly irritating any sections of the community, and particularly the members endeavored to interest the strongest men of the community ln the work. Close watch was
kept over legislation aud oare was
taken when applications was made lor
oity charters to leduce where possible
the influence of the saloon element
and to procure local option. Another
department of the work of the league
was to procure the enforsement of the
laws tbat exist, and in this the members had been very successful. Where-
ever possible city and distriot attorneys were elected who would enforce the acts against the liquor
element so that private citizens were
not called on to interfere. Au instance
of what the league could do was the
faot that in the city of Minneapolis
all the saloons are confined to a comparatively small part of the city'3
area and there are none in tbose parts
of the city where the residences,
schools and churches aro Bituated.
The separation of tho suloons from
other businesses was accomplished
and in the state not more than ten per
cent, of the hotels bave liquor
licences, Tho wineroom question had
been taken up and they had boen
declared illegal and in mott cases had
been suppressed.

WARDE IN HELl'HEOOE.
That Frederick Wardo is a favorite
in Canada and British Columbia and
that his performance is ono of very
strong attraction to the public is conclusively proven by tho lollcwlng
criticism on the play and company by
the Viotoria Times:
A huge audience greeted Frederick
Warde and oompany on tlieir appearance at the Victoria theatre last evening in the lomautic drama, "Tho
Montcbank." Lost night's performance demonstrated that he has this
year surrounded himself with one of
the strongest companies ever associated with him, the leading roles
being altogether in the hands of capable and painstaking artists and
artistes. The tenor of the play runs
through tho wholo gamut uf human
emotion, from the height of absurdity
to the deepest of pathos. Thero are
scenes in the play affording scope lor
the strongest display of histrionic
talent. In the second aet, when tbo
pool, faithful mountebank, Helphe-
gor, returns home and finds his vi ife
and child gone, thore iB a rare opportunity for emotional actirg. which

Sometimes the wife of a doctor can
bring her husband around when he

known physician in Washingtons, I).
C, concluded thai ooffee was the causo
of the doctor's sleepless nights, She
says, "He would retire and lie for
boura unable to sleep a wink. I
thought perhaps ho wts nervous from
tho coffee wbich he drank at his moals
and suggested that ho trv Pustum. To
my surprise he objected most decidedly. I said nothing but tho next
morning made Postum Coffee instead
of the regular coffee and gavo thai to
the doctor. I made it according to
directions and it had a beautiful
colfeo color and llavor. Ho drank his
cup and remarked that the coffee was
unusually good that morning and
nssed for more.
Krom that time 1 served him Postum
nt every meal, and in the course of a
week or two ho showed such remarkable signs of improvement in health
and strength that I told him he had
been drinking Postum from tho time
ho bad begun to get bettor.
You never saw such a surprised
man. He snid, 'Well, if tho good
coffee I have had is Postum, and leaving off regular coffee has made such a
eliaiifo in my health, I never wnnt
any other Ulna in my bouse." Since
then he regularly prescribes Postum
to many of iii" patients and with good

HERPICIDE
TO HAVE
THICK,
LUXURIANT
HAIR
Is the most longed-for de-
si re of every woman.
Stic knows whatapower-
ful aid to beauty it Is,
and endeavors to make
her own as soft, glossy
and thick as possible.
Comparatively few of
them are aware as yet
that Newbro's Herpicide,
a recent scientific discovery, will enable them
to possess hair as thick
and luxuriant as anyone
could desire.
It works on a new theory of destroying the
germ that feeds upon the
hair root, and thus making dandruff and falling
hair impossible. It then
proceeds to produce a
growth of thick, glossy
hair that Boon becomes
the pride of its owner.
One trial will convince ,
you ol its virtues.
