Eleventh  Year
TIME RIPE
FOR ACTION
Proper Pressure at Ottawa
Will Get the Bonus for
Refinery.
S, S. Taylor Explains the Situation in a Telegram to
The Miner.
contractors have signed the new scale
but all the members of the union were
called out.
A strong delegation to assist W. A.
Galliher, M. P., in convincing tbe
government of the necessity of subsidizing the mining industry in Hritish
Columbia is now regarded as the principal factor in achieving the end so
much to be desired from the standpoint of the mining and business men
of this district. This statement is
made on the strength of a telegram
received yesterday by Tlie Miner from
S. S. Taylor, K.C., who is now in Ottawa. Mr. Taylor states that he has
seen Hon. Clifford Sifton who favors
the proposition, and that the remaining ministers are not unfavorable. In
this frame of mind the ministers may
be readily convinced that the interests of the Kootenays and indirectly
those of a widely diffused business
element are wrapped tip in the matter
of securing encouragement for the
mines of this province. The most sensible way of
CONVINCING THE GOVERNMENT
of the facts is to send to' Ottawa a
delegation of men who are capable of
bringing out the facts clearly and of
placing before the cabinet tbe information to support their position on
the question. Tbe point tu be accomplished is that of demonstrating to
the government that the lead industry
has claims outweighing those of other
Industries tbat are ashing assistance.
Hon. Clifford Sitton has undertaken
to secure for the delegation nn interview with the entire cabinet, so that
the delegates will have an exceptionally good opportunity of making a
strong case.
The government has apparently
taken a decided stand against estab
lishing a portfolio of mines as was requested by several trade organizations
In this province. The matter was bo-
fore the Nelson board of trade, and it
was decided not to forward a petition
for a
PORTFOLIO OP MINES
as requested by other boards of trade.
The position is taken here that an
efficient bureau of mines would accomplish much for the mining industry and as action in this direction is
promised in the immediate future, the
attitude of the government meets with
the approval of local interests concerned.
Nelson will have four man at Ottawa. S. S. Taylor, K. C, is now at
the capital, and has already taken action in the matter of sounding the
ministry on the subsidy question. S.
8. Fowler the second representative of
tbe buaid of trade left Snnday morning for the east and H. E. Cioasdulle,
who actB for the Mine Owners' association and tbe board of trade jointly,
expects to leave tomorrow morning.
J. Roderick Robeitson also left on
Sunday for Ottawa where he will
bring matters affecting the industry
before thu government.

Loudon, April 1.���The private secre
tary   of Lord   Salisbury,   Mr. Sehom
berg McDonnell,   informs  the Associ
ated Press that the premier is. making
excellent   progress,   and there   is   no
truth in the   statement that his phys
icians have   discovered   symptoms   of
Blight's disease, or any other complication.    He   is still somewhat  weak,
as the result of  influenza, but expects
to start for the   Riviera at   the end of

# Government Will Protect B. C.
From Coal Famine.
R. W. Hannington received a
telegraphic message yesterday
from his legal partner, S. S.
Taylor, K. C, who is now in
Ottawa, giving intelligence of
the utmost importance legard-
ing the Crow's Nest Southern
legislation now before the
house of commons. Mr.
Taylor stated that the
charter bill wonld come before
the railroad committee today
and that its passage was assured. Also that the bill would be
presented to tbe house after the
Easter holidays and that it
would certainly be carried. The
government cannot insert in a
railroad bill any restriction regarding the hauling of coal out
of the country, but has under ���
taken to safeguard the Canadian
consumers against any shortage
in the fuel supply by the imposition of an export duty or the
establishment of government
coal reserves.

THE   BALANCE OF THE
SESSION.
(SPECIAL TU THIS MINER.)
Ottawa, April 1.���The premier stated in reply Mr. Hughes of Victoria
that the government had been invoiced by the imperial government to
send a representative to England to
consult with them in reference to a
change ii. the constitution before the
judical committee of the privv council. No Canadian delegate had been
appointed.
The premier moved that hereafter
government business should have precedence on Wednesdays. Wednesday
is now only reserved for private member's business, and this means a rushing of the work of the session,
On the suggestion of tbe leader of
the opposition it was decided that tlie
resolution should not go into effect
until Wednesday of next week. The
premier moved that adjournmoct for
the Easter holidays should be from
Thursday until Tuesday. However,
as there seemed to be a general
opinion that adjournment should be
from Wudnosday he had no objection
to tbis proposal being carried out.
This was earried.

Henri returns.
Sir Hlbbert Tupper intends leaving

THE plague; INCRKASHS.
Capetown, April 1.���The bubonic
plague Is Increasingly virulent in
Capetown. Five deaths, one European and four colored, occurred today
and six new eases were officially reported.
The matter at issue between the
city and the Kootenay Lake Telephone company was the burning question before the city council last night
and no small proportion of the session was devoted to the discussion of
the topic. It will be remembered
that last year's council passed a resolution authorizing the telephone people to utilize the city's electric light
poles for stringing telephone wires
on payment of an annual rental of
25 cents per pole. The city instructed the city solicitor to prepare an
agreement to be executed by both interests, but this was never consummated, first because the agreement did
not suit the telephone company and
second because an amended agreement was alleged to have gone astray.
In the meantime James McPhee, Inspector of the civic lighting system,
reported to the fire, water and light
committee under whose direction bis
department is operated, that the
stringing of the telephone wires interfered seriously with the city pole
men and that the extra labor thus
incurred more than counterbalanced
the amount the city was supposed to
receive in pole rental*. On the
strength of this report the committee recommended that the telephone
people be required to remove their
wires within the shortest possible
time. The question was raised at
last council meeting and referred for
a week to allow the telephone company's headofllce to be heard from.
At last night's meeting G.C. Hodge,
district manager, appeared for the
company with a sheaf of documents
relating to tbe matter. He had letters from the company stating that
the non-execution of the agreement
was enly an oversight which would
be remedied at once. James McPhee
was present also and considerable
cross-firing ensued between him and
Mr. Hodge on the point of interference. After the council had listened
to botli men, Alderman Selous suggested that the question of the agreement was not the one at issue. It
was for the council to determine
whether or not the city's lighting
system was to suffer. The fact that
the city had only some three wires on
the poles while the telephone company had thirty would seem to indicate that the latter had decidedly
the best of tlie bargain.
Mi. Hodge put special stress on the
point that when the company strung
its wires on the city poles they had
done so with the consent of council
and under the impression that the
agreement would be continued for a
number of years. In addition to this
they had put telephones in citizens'
homes which could not possibly
have been reached had it been necessary to erect a new pole line. If tho
company was now compelled to take
down Its wires before they were
hardly in proper working order a severe loss and hardship would be incurred, as would be realized at a
glance. Their entire year's work
would go for nothing, and in view of
the fact that this work had been
done in good faith he thought the aldermen should give the company a reasonable time to recoup themselves for
their outlay.
The upshot the discussion was that
the entire matter was referred back
to the fire, water and light committee with authority to hold a meeting
at which MesBrs. McPhee and Hodge
would be present for the purpose of
giving the members   information.
The board of works presented a report making various recommendations
ns follows:
1. That a six-foot walk be laid on
the west side of Josephine street from
Mill to Hoover street instead of on
the cast sldo as formerly.
2. Hint Hoover street be made passable for teams from Josephine to
Cellar streets, and that   the   sidewalk
G.P.R. to Build New Bridge at
Kootenay Crossing This
Summer.
Nelson to Be Division Headquarters for Engine and
Train Crews.
Continualon Fourth V_g��,
The C. P. R. will replace the present bridge at Kootenay Crossing with
a nenv and more substantial structure
this summer. This statement was
made yesterday by William Whyte,
general manager of C. P. R. lines
west of Fort William. The company
now has'engineers at tbe bridge making surveys and collecting other data
in connection with the proposed
work. Mr. Whyte states that the
new bridge will bo erected this summer. Tlie fact is of considerable interest In Nelson, not only from a general standpoint but because these extensive operations in the immediate
vicinity of the eity naturally bring
grist to the mills ot the local wholesalers and co business houses as a
whole.
AN IMPORTANT GATHERING
of C. P. R. men took place in Nelson
yesterday. Among the officials who
spent the day here in addtlon to Mr.
Whyte were R. Marpole, general superintendent of the Pacific division,
John G. Sullivan,district superintendent of the construction department,
H. J, Cambie, resident engineer for
the Pacific division, J. Lonsdale
Doupe, assistant director of the lands
department, C. W. Milestone, superintendent of the Moosejaw division,
and Secretaries Armistead and Coyle.
During the day the party visited the
station grounds and inspected tlie
new shipyards near Honeyman's
foundry.
In the course of an interview Mr.
Whyte divulged some Information of
far more than ordinary interest to
Nelsonites. He stated that the super-
stucture for the
NEW BIDGE AT ROBSON
would be delivered here by the manufacturers in June next and that tbe
work of placing it in position would
not occupy nny great 1 jngth of time.
It waB then the company's intention
to run through trains from Nelson to
the Boundnry terminal points and the
effect of this move would be to bring
to this city as permanent residents
the engine and train crows for the
entite division with the exception of
a couple of crews employed on the
road between Rossland and Smelter
Junction. This would neeeasltate a
material increase in the capacity of
the roundhouse at the'depot and plans
were being made to add a number of
stalls to the present structure. A
repair shop would also be constructed here for the purpose of handling
all repairs to tho locomotives running
out of this
DIVISION HEADQUARTERS.
It was probable that when the Bound-
house was enlarged four of the stalls
would be employed to house the repair
shop. He could not say how many
mechanics would be brought to the
city through this change, but the
staff would bu ample to handle the
work expeditiously. Altogether the
proposed alteration In the operating
system would bring to Nelson a large
number of men drawing high wages
and of the stamp which made first
class citizens, all of which should
very materially benefit the city.
Asked as to possible changes (In the
stlyc of rolling stock now used, Mr.
Whyte replied that it was unlikely
the company would Increase the
weight of the rolling stock used on
tho division when the through service
was inaugurated, as the present engines and cars were au heavy as it
was thought advisable to employ with
the present weight of rail.
Another feature which will redound
to tbe
BENEFIT OF NELSON
Is the work on the road between Nelson and Robson. Last year and In
the year previous considerable appropriations were expended In improvements to this section of the line, and
this summer it ts proposed to lay out
sin ther substantial appropriation on
the same section. Mr. Wliyto stated
that bt bad found everything running
smoothly in this district and that he
was much pleased with the possibilities for securing a first class shipyard at the cast end site selected for
tbe purpose.
Referring to the Lardo road, Mr.
Whyte remarked that while no contracts had been let for actual construction the compuny was going ahead
rapidly with the preliminary work of
completing the slip at Lardo, getting out ties for the road and bringing in steel. Developments might be
expected in this direction almost
daily.
Mr. Whyte and party left this
morning for a trip over the Boundary
lines. During his brief stay in tbe
city a number of Nelsonites took advantage of the opportunity to renew
old friendships with the popular western manager of tbe  C. P. R.   system.

RULED OUT OF ORDER.
(Special to The Miner.)
Victoria, B. C, April 1.���
John Houston's motion re the
undertaking of tlie Crow's Nest
Southern railway as a provincial work, was ruled out of order
by the speaker today as involving government policy. Mr.
Houston made a short speech,
in which he rehashed tho bogey
that the building of the road
would result in the ruination
of three-quarters of the mining
industry in the Kootenays.

Victoria, April 1.���The D. G
Quadra, with Mr. Peak, Pacific cable
engineer, and J. W. Wilson, superintendent of the C. P. R. telegraphs, has
returned from the west coast. Alternative sites for a landing for tbe cable
have been selected at the mouth of
Banfield creek and at San Juan and
referred to Ottawa. Of the two sites
selected as a terminus that at tlie entrance of Barclay Sound (Banfield
creek) seems preferable. The approach
to the landing is through ooze, in
which the cable would sink, thus protecting it from disturbance. Al San
Juan there is twelve fathoms, but the
surf there Ib much heavier than nt the
first named point. Mr. Peak leaves
for Australia the latter part of this
week in connection with the project.
He stated that a vessel of 10,000 tons
is being built in England for- the purpose of laying tlie cable.
Nine more bodies have been recovered from the wrecked mine at Union.
Yesterday afternoon Win. Snedden
and his Chinese helper were taken
out. Later on George Turnbull was
recovered with his legB badly injured
by falling rock. This morning thu
bodies of Thomas Lord. P. Bono, and
Andrew Smith were brought up.
.Smith was recognized by his having
lost two fingers on the left band. Later still a Jap was recovered, badly in
jured, having been thrown some instance by tbe force of the explosion,
and a Chinese brattieemun. Allison,

One of the little incidents
which, in highly colored form, fre'
queutly enter into the composition of
mining romances was enacted a day
or two ago on the south side of Koo-
teay river eight miles west of this
city. On the divide between Sproule
and Bear creek, is a group of claims
formerly owned by a mining company
several years defunct. The company
took up the property as a copper proposition and shipped a quantity of
high grade ore mined from a number
of enormous boulders on the surface.
No effort was made to locate tlie
lead from whicli the boulders came
und apparently the company's affairs
were loosely managed for the claims
were allowed to lapse. Some prospectors were quick to seize the opportunity and promptly relocated the
group. This happened three years
ago and while no development or assessment work was attempted the
prospectors were on hand each year to
relocate the claims. Joe Duhamel, a
well-known Nelson prospector, cast
his eyes in the direction of the property aud acquired one claim several
years ago. He determined to get bold
of others and on ascertaining when
the claims ran out together with the
fact that no assessments had been recorded determined to get in on the
ground floor. Accordingly ou the
night previous to the day on which
the former locations expired he carried his pack to the ground and al
daylight staked tlie claims. Before lie
hail time to get nway the former
owners appeared for tbo purpose of
relocating the ground, but Duhamel
showed them his stakes, whicli were
in perfect order, and they departed
sadder but wiser men. Dnhainel's locations were the C. A. K., Copper
Prince and Star. When in the city
yesterday Duhamel wus making preparations to depart for his new property and stated thai, it was his intention tu prospect thurooghly tor
the ledge supposed to exist within
tire confines of tlie claims.

IMMEDIATE ACTION   NECESSARY.
The Miner is in receipt of a telegram from S. S. Taylor who is acting
as a delegate from the Nelson board
of trade at Ottawa, explaining the situation as he found it at the federal
capital in connection with the establishment of a lead refinery in British
Columbia.    Mr.   Taylor's  telegram is
as follows:
Ottawa, April 1.
Editor Miner, Nelson, B. C.:
I have had an interview with Hon
Mr. Sifton. He strongly favors grant
ing a bonus on refined lead. Other
ministers are not unfavorable, but
they must be immediately impressed
with the supreme importance of the
question if it is to Becure priority over
the demands of other industries. It
is most important that Messrs. Field
insg and Cartwright Bhould be im
pressed with the desirsbilty of grant
ing the bonus. I advise that t
strong, capable delegation be sent
here Immediately In order to assist
Mr. Galliher. Hon. Mi. Sifton has
promised me that he will arrange an
interview with the whole cabinet.
The government is emphatic in the
opinion that it is unnecessary to create
a portfolio of mines, but promises to
establish a bureau of mines immediately. S. S. TAYLOR.
It will be seen that Mr. Taylor asks
that a strong, capable delegation be
sent at once from Nelson to asBist
him in presenting the case for the refinery before the government. It is
quite apparent from what he says that
the government is not disinclined to
act generously in the matter and that
If infficlent pressure is brought to
bear at once the necessary assistance
will be forthcoming. The importance
of the people of Nelson taking immediate action in the matter is quite
apparent and we hope no time will be
lost in arranging for Mr. Taylor's
hand* to be strengthened in *be Planner he suggests. Perhaps if a public
meeting were called at once that
would be as good a plan as any for
. arranging for the selection of a dele
gallon. One thing is certain. Im
mediate action is necessary and The
Nelson will not be
tbe   hint
ties   and   thus    the   building  of   the
much-needed line will be deferred indefinitely.   If tbe latter should be the
outcome of   the situation the   government will be placed in the unenviable
position of being called   upon   to  explain why it imposed such stipulations
as had the effect of  temporarily  killing the  scheme.    The   people  of   the
districts which   would be much benefitted by the building of the line   will
be very   loath   to   accept   the government's   protestations of   innocence of
any desire to play   into tbe hands  of
those who stand   to   oenefit  by   construction   being   delayed.     The government is in a very awkward plight.
If   it   retreats    from    its    position,
such action will be  tantamount to  a
confession that It made a   mistake  in
its  policy���which   would   have    the
effect of weakening the government in
the eyes of the public���and  if it persists in   demanding  compliance  with
the conditions it   has   named   in   the
advertisement calling for tenders, the
road   will   not   be built and   a   howl
will go   up all  over the country,   so
loud and long as to leave no   doubt in
the minds of anyone what   the fate of
the Dunsmuir administration will  be
when next it appeals to the people.
in preventing the colonial secretary
taking a course calculated to plunge
the country into serious international
difficulties.
Tons of paper and gallons of printers' ink are being utilized by the
press of the United States in an endeavor to do justice to the marvellous achievement of General Funston
in arresting Aguinaldo. We are told
that the latter's capture was not ef-
ected without a terrible and bloody
battle. There was a discharge of real
firearms in the hands of at least .10
men and two men wero actually
wounded. Gracious! Funston ought
to be the next president.
MR. TURNER.
It is announced unofficially that
Hon. J. H. Turner will shortly retire
from the government and go to England to take up the post of agent
general for British Columbia. It has
been known for months past that the
retirement of Mr. Turner was agreed
upon, so the announcement does not
come in the nature of a surprise. Mr.
Turner should prove a very efficient
agent-general. He is one of the best
Informed men in the province, a good
speaker and haB adequate knowledge
of the resources and advantages of the
country. He should be able to do
good work for Biitish Columbia in
London, both in the way of interesting capitalists and fostering emigra
tion. It is whispered by those close
in touch with political affairs that
Mr. Turner's retirement is uot of his
seeking���that it'is, in fact, foiced
upon him, in order that the government may carry out a promise made
its supporters when it look up the
reins of office. It is hard to name a
likely successor to Mr. Turner In the
position of finance minister. There
may be a general shuttle of portfolios
and a cabinet position found for H.
D. Helmcken, K. 0��� M. P. P., the
senior member for Victoria and for
years a staunch supporter of the Turner government. Vancouver Ib sure
to put up a strong fight for representation in the cabinet.

CURRENT COMMENT
Miner hopes that
dilatory   in    acting    upon
which   Mr.   Tavloi   has given in
above telegram,
the
THE     COAST-KOOTENAY      KOAD.
Tbe Vancouver World is very greatly Incensed at the action of the government In imposing such conditions
In regard to the building of the Coast-
Kootenay road as to make It impossible for any responsible compuny lo
undertake the work. The World boldly declares that It believes the government Is playing into tho hands of the
C. P. R.    It says:
"It oppeara to us that cluiise one,
giving tbe government four per cent.
of the gross earnings ns n first charge
is calculated to kill all competition,
as it will delay the building of a road
Indefinitely. No company will give
the government what Is tantamount
to 12 per ocnt, on Its net earnings and
thus the C. P. It. will huve no competitor in Southern Hritish Ciiluinbliiiiiid
Itself will feel no need to build the
road. That clause alone In the conditions blocks progress. Tho V., V.
and Eastern railway compuny Is prepared to build the line at once under
reasonable conditions. Mr. J. .1. Hill
has already arranged for the money
and Is iendy to stint construction im-
me_H��i*ly. starting ut Vancouver city.
Will 'the peoplo of this city allow
tbe government to stand in the way
of their progress? Are we so meek
and mild that we will let the cabinet Interfere with the development
of onr city? Without competitive
railways we may ns well get out of
the town- The C. P. R. and progressive ��nch re have luiiile.villagcH but not
blff'Clt,ICH. "
The people of Victoria are also very
much aroused over the mutter and at
a public meeting hold on Friday evening last denounced the government for

RAILWAY CHARTERS.
If legislation could be effected
whereby, whenever a railway charter
is granted, work on such railroad
must be at once commenced, it would
be a decided benefit not only to the
province bnt to the entire Dominion.
Charters that have been granted
years ago by the Province are today
being peddled around by enterprising
charter mongers to the highest bidder. Such legislation if effeoted
would either put a complete stop to
this kind of work, or be the means
of having such a network of railways
in British Columbia that the transportation problem would be forever
solved. There are at the present time
no less than 13 railways seeking incorporation at the provincial legislature, with a total mileage of about
5000. If charters were granted to all
these and actual construction commenced within a reasonable time after
granting such an era of prosperity
would exist in British Columiba as
would attract the attention of the
entire ciivlized world. Grant all the
chatters applied for, providing those
seeking them guurantee the immediate construction of the road. It would
be necessary under these conditions
for the government to have the control
of rates, the competition "Iif force
would I soon satisfactorily | arrange
them.���Trail Creek News.
Mr. Houston, the well-known news-
papei man of the interior, made a slip
yesterday afternoon, which may bring
the profession into disrepute as users
of impolite English. Mr. Houston
recently spent a week In Seattle, and
while sojourning with the unsophisticated residents of that burg picked up
some colloquialisms which he repeated
in the house. It was on the debate
to the i legal professions bill when he
referred to the shyster lawyers of
San Franscisco. "Shyster!" exclaimed Hon. Mr. Turnei aghast. "What
does that word mean. We cannot allow tbe debate .to proceed until we
are informed." Mr. Houston did not
proceed to enlighten the house in
regard to the outlandish term ho had
learned in the eouth, aud Mr. Turner
evidently remembering that there
must be some great and good reason
for a man of Mr. Houston's newspaper
experience using such a word allowed
the question to drop.���Vancouver

It is well for the people of Canada
that there is a man at the head of the
department of railways who is unswerving in his determination tc
serve the masses in preference to the
railwuy charter mongers that infest
the Dominion nnd BritiBh Columbia in
particular. We allude to the application of the British Columbia Southern
railway t. have an extension of five
years added to its already ample time
for tlie construction of the road. The
Hon. Mr, Blair took a business like
view of the application, nnd gave
them one year in which to begin act-
ual construction, otherwise the company would forfeit its charter. The
line from Golden to Fort Steele is
affected by the minister's decision and
it is hoped it will have the desired result of muking tlie company build
without fuither delay. The country
to be benefitted by this line iB rich in
mineral and agricultural resources
and these industries must not be al
lowed to languish to favor a few
charter mongers who have well nigh
exhausted the patience of the people
and the minister of railwuys ns well.

Very general regret will be expressed at the news that Loid Salisbury's health is falling and that hlB
retirement, from political life is Imminent. Lord Sallsbuiy is considered
the ablest living British statesman

post which he so ably tilled for so
long will be felt as a very distinct
loss to the nation. When ho leaves

Premier Roblin's Manitoba   Contracts
May Fail���Canadian Wirelets.
(.SPECIAL, TO Till-; MlM'.It.)
Winnipeg, April 1.���J. H. Brock,
one of Manitoba's delegates, who
went to Ottawa to oppose the endorsing of the railway contracts, returned today. In conversation he
said: "The opinion of Wallace Nes-
bit, who is acting as counsel for the
delegation, is that the Dominion parliament cannot legalize the contracts
entered into and even if the bills are
passed, the contracts can atill not he
legally entered into. I am of the
opinion that when the whole case In
opposition to the contracts is piesent-
ed, the bills will not he passed."
Donald Todd, charge.l with the
murder of John (ioidon, took the
stand in hi. own behalf at the assize
today. De gave a general denial of
eivdence adduced by the crown, and
made a good impression, A severe
cross*examination failed to shake his
testimony.
Halifax, April. 1.���Premier Murray
in the legislature today brought down
the estimates for the curront year.
An unprecedented development in coal
mining operations has inflated the
revenues from royalties until today
that is the lagest Item of piovincial
revenue, exceeding even the Bubsidy
from the federal government. The
total revenue estimated was SI,034,900,
with an estimated expenditure of 81,-
036,365. The principal item of revenue wasjestimated of 8400,000 royalties from mines,

CURTIS' RAILROAD 8PBB0B
Makes Point   iu Regard to Conditions
Imposed by Government.
(SI'KCIAI. TO THE! MINER.)
Victoria, April 1.���Amid frequent
interruptions and in spite of tbe pro-
teat of the speaker, Smith Curtis today unburdened himself of a speech on
the railway policy of the government.
He made a strong attack on the ministry, inferentiallly implying that
Dunsmuir was swayed by business relations with the C. P. R. aud a fear
that the development of the coal lands
of the Similkameen would result in
lowering the price of his coal. Curtis
also Insisted that the same onerous
condition attached by the government
to the company building the Coast-
Kootenay line should be imposed on
the extension of the island road in
which the premier is financially interested.
The house will adjourn on Wednesday till the Kith. The premier will
dine all the members nt the Hotel
Driard tonight.
NICE POINT  OF LAW.
Should English M. P.'s Have Offered
Themselves For Re Election.
London, April 1.���The measure
known as the retroaspective bill ren-
deiing re-appointment to ollice. unnecessary In-consequence of the demise
of a sovereign passed its second reading in the House of Commons today,
by a vote of 180 to 83.
In the course of the debate on this
bill, it was pointed out by Mr. William Oderthy, Irish Nationalist, that
a penalty was incurred of a ��500 fine
for each time an unauthorized person
took a seat or took part in a division.
Cabinet ministers who are members
of the present house of commons, have
made themselves liable to fines
amounting in the aggregate to ��1,-
000,00(1 for not having stood for the
election to parliament upon being
officially notified of the death of
Queen Victoria and the accession to
the throne of King Edward VII. Mr.
Lubouchere raised the question
against Mr. Balfour, as a matter of
privilege and the deputy speaker ruled
that he ought to have raised it the
first time Mr. Balfour re-appeared in
the house after resigning if he raised
it at all. It was now a question for
the courts.

ESCAPED THE INDEMNITY.
London, Aprll3.���Mr. Chamberlain's
announcements in the house of commons say that the British Chartered
South Africa Co. has escaped the payment of ��1,000,000 ns Indemnity in
view of the Jameson raid has given
rise to considerable dissatisfaction.
"It reveals a scandalous state of
things," snya the Daily Chroniole,
"ministers owe It to their own reputations and to tho population of the
country to take action oven at the
risk of failure to recover this money."
A Mystery That Was Rurally Ex��l-1_-
ed by a Sclentiflo Mass.
Professor W. J. McGee, in charge of
the bureau of ethnology, is well known
as a member of tht famous Society For
Psychical Research and suys that he
used to have a fad of sleeping in haunted
houses, but never succeeded in finding a
(host indoors, although he once hunted
up and caught one out in the open.
"While I was once ia a country town,"
he said, "a clerk in a store shot and killed
a burglar who had succeeded in forcing
an entrance. The coroner, a superannuated politician, was called from a neighboring village, viewed the corps, and pro
nounced the man deserving of death.
Without an examination the body was
thrown into an ordinary box, carted oS
to the cemetery and unceremoniously
buried.    The  townspeople,  incensed   at
I such a careless proceeding, protested, and
' a physician was later deputized to disinter the body.   This was done.   Later the
I body was returned to the grave, and the
box was only about half covered with
earth.
"Within a few months there began to
be vague rumors about things not being
exactly right at the cemetery. I paid mo
attention until an old, hard headed farmer came to me and, explaining that he
had beard that I professed to some scientific knowledge, asked me to Investigate
the ghosts which, be said, he had seeq
the nirrlit before in the graveyard.
"I > aited a few nights, fearing a practical joke and, going ont the back way
across lots, reached the cemetery about
10 o'clock, the night being very dark. I
stopped at the corner of the graveyard,
about 75 yards from the robber's grave.
It was a chilly night, with an occasional
gust of wind. I waited probably half or
three-quarters of an hour, occasionally
glancing toward the spot until I, like tha
others, 'saw something.' I watched tha
specter for a long time.
"Above the grave hovered a white flg-
uro tapering toward the bead and answering the descriptions of the peopl* bo-
holding it previously, who had said It
wore a tall, peaked cap. It made irregular movements, sometimes crouching,
lometimes' standing. I had heard rumors
that there appeared not only tbe ghost
���t the robber, but tbe little ghosta of bis
children, who, the presumption was, had
starved to death. Sure enough, the little
ghosts began to appear. The figures were
apparently indulging ia weird orgies. I
started toward them. As V approached
they gradually became more indistinct
and finally melted entirely Into the atmosphere. I went back some distance
until they reappeared, like blue flames of
j fire. Suddenly I remembered a former
experience,  and  the  whole explanation
I was clear. The ghosts were in reality,
as I afterward proved, the phosphorescent fumes due to decomposition ot the
organic gases thrown off by the robber's
body, half covered as it was, in the ���till,
humid air. Yet tbis waa as veritable a
ghost as has ever been seen."���Washington Times.	
In Little Bohemia.
The two literary people were going out
to luncheon together.
"How much money have you got?" asked one.
"Twelve cents, Just," said the other,
counting.   "And you?"
"I've got only 5 cents. I thought you
had enough."
"Ah, well, I can borrow 8 cents."
AfUfca luncheon on coffee and cakes
amoiMlbg to 10 cents each the younger
literary man said, "I'll match you for the
cigars."
"But we haven't a coin to match with,"
���aid his senior in "the business."
The younger man was an optimist. He
said, "Wi.'"ll go to the cigar .tore aud
borrow a coin and match, and the loser
Will get the man to I rust him for cigars."
"You go to the  1" said the older,
who waB a pessimist. "You get the cigars on credit, and when we are paid this
aftornoon we'll match, aud the loser will
do the paying,"
The younger got the cigars. Later the
older man paid for them.���New York

QUESTION ANSWERED.
Yes, August Flower still has the largest Bale of any medicine in the civilized world. Your mothers and grandmothers never thought of using any
thing else for Indigestion or Biliousness. Doctors were scarce, and they
seldom heard of Appendicitis, Nervous
Prostration or Heart failure, eto.
They used A ugust Flower to clean out
the system and stop fermentation of
undigested food, regulate the action
of the system, and that Is all they
took when feeling dull and bad with
headaches and other aches. You only
need a few doses of Green's August
Flower, In liquid form, to make you
satisfied there is nothing serious the
matter with yon. For sale bv W. F.

nOAXED THE LAWYERS.
April Fool Joke   at   Expense of Leading Eastern   Lawyers.
(SPECIAL TO THK MISER.)
Montreal, April 1 ���Not for years
have so many eminent legal gentlemen of Montreal gathered together aa
the result of an April fool joke, as did
this morning at the G. T. railway
station. As each gentleman arrived
with a valise he was surprised to see
other leading lawyers already at the
station. They were in the waiting
rooms, on the platforms, knocking
their feet together keeping warm
while they conversed in groups, not
a hint dropped as -to each other's
business. All, however, inquired for
the New Yoik train which to make
matters worse was nearly two hours
late.
When the train at last pulled in
everyone stepped out to meet some
one there. After tbe last passenger
stepped out on the platform without
one of the lawyers recognizing a
friend or client, they looked at one
another in astonishment. After
moment's silence some one suggested
"An April fool" and a moment's
consultation convinced them that
they had been made victims of a huge
joke.
A few days ago every legal firm of
prominence received a letter from
Fitts, lllickham and Ware, 44 Weed
Btreet, St. Paul's Churchyard. London,
E, C., stating that Mr. Blickham,
member of tbe firm, was on his way
to Canada on business with the Canad
ian customs department and required
legal assistance from tbat particular
firm. The leading member, who mnst
meet the train from New York on the
morning of April 1st, must also be
prepared to accompany Mr. lllickham
to Ottawa. They were there with visions of a profitable client. The lawyers made the best of the joke_ taking
the matter good naturedly.

Dr. Armstrong, Dominion veterinary inspector for the Nelson riding,

waB 'sub-Inspector for the Rossland
district, has been removed to the asylum at New Westminster, and the
work of the inspection has fallen on
