THIS Hotel in one ofthe liest known and most popular houses
in the country.      It is located adjacent to tbe depot ami the

The dining room is strictly up to date and tlie Iwr su] | lied

seem to indicate that the    ttemptcd- S^0^ *^urd?t P'ip-r- •xji"^(lis
plot on the part of the opposition on
Monday, to secure by trickery
a snap
vote against the government, has, by
reason pf the circumstances and disgrace attending its (allure, exercised a
most disastrous effect on the opposi
tion themselves. One of the worst
featuiesof the affair was contributed
by a prominent up country Lilieral
member, who broke his agreement to
pair with Mr. Maegowan. Vancouver,
that trusting -gentleman remaining
over in the Terminal City on Monday.
The expressions of public disgust ut
tliis piece of treachery have lieen very
strong and general.
The past week has seen an unbroken
series of ministerial victories, with
majorities ranging from three to seven.
So much lor a weak government, "tottering to its fall."
The school liill passed its second
reading Tuesday liy a vote of 23 to 17.
On Wednesday it was considered in
committee of the whole, when all the
non-contentious clauses were dealt
with, and the house rose and reported
progress. '
Thc same day was embittered for
tie opposition byiinother defeat,when
th"' Songhces reserve bill passed its
second reading by a vote of 28 to Ki;
the amendment of Mr. Maedonald.the
leader of the opposition, to the effect
thut thc matter of disposing the re-
serve lands should Ih* left to the legislature, meeting defeat by the same
uumber of votes.
As it has pleased the opposition to
make a matter of violent partizan |>oi
country has had enough of it. Moreover, I am in possession of information, from a source which may be considered reliable, to the effect* that the
promoters of this company, in the expectation of their grant going through
tho house, have already granted an
option on their property to parties representing the Grand Trunk Pacific
railway. Wildcat promoters and
eliartermongers will receive no recognition from the government.
Monday's (18th inst.) session was a
ng at lour.
The speaker gave his decision upon
an amendment to the Songhces reserve
H<t, introduced by the opposition on
Friday through Mr. Cameron,Victoria,
and laid over till Monday, pendiug
sucli decision.
The question had arisen and had
l»eon rather warmly discussed as to
whether an opposition member could
thus offer an amendment to a government bill of this nature, inasmuch as
it encroached upon the government's
prerogative iu the matter of dealing
with crown lands, and be in order.
Oddly enough, uo previous decision
in the house appeared to bear upon
the case, and heuce it was laid over
for the speaker to consult authorities.
Speaker Pooley gave his decision in
lhe matter, which wtis to the effect
that the amendment was in order.
The triumph of the opposition was
shortlived, however, as the amendment thus permitted was immediately
voted upou by the house.and defeated
by 18 votes to 13. Mr. Cameron's defeated amendment provided for certain
free giants to the city of Victoria.
The house then went into committee
on the game act, which took up the
major part of the afternoon. There
were a few warm scenes, but good
progress was made with the measure
when the house reported progress.
Hon. R. G. Tatlow. miuister of finance, performed a plucky deed a few
days ago, whan, at considerable personal risk.he stopped a runaway horse,
and saved the two young fellows iu
the vehicle attached to the same from
an ugly smash-up.   Strange ho v that
ordered up for reconsideration and
final adoption at the next meeting of
council.
Mayor stated Paul Hauck had offered to purchase (he old lumber nt
the back of the Sloan building. Aid.
Aitchison said there were others who
wanted it too. Left to committee to
value it.
Aid. Teeter gave notice that at the
next meeting he would introduce a
bylaw repealing bylaw No. IB, being
the road tax bylaw.
The mayor spoke of the necessity of
effecting repairs to the Springer creek
bridge at Delaney ave.
Aid. Toeter favored asking for tenders in two ways, for lowering the
bridge in the centre two feet and placing caps on tho piles; also for filling
in the east end of the bridge up to the
piling, making it a permanent road.
It was moved by Ald.Teetor.second-
ed by Aid. Madden, that the clerk ask
!or tenders for repairing Springer
bridge at Delaney avo. Carried. Plans
and specifications to be seen at the
mayor's office.

EX-REEVE'S RHEUMATISM CURED
BY DODD'S KIDNEY PILLS.
Was so Crippled that he Could Hardly Get Around and Could Get No
Relief from   Doctors or  Medicines.
Dresden, Ont., Mar. 13.—(Special)
—"Dodd's Kidney Pills cured me ol
Rheumatism slick and clean." Mr.
W. O. Cragg, the well-known mer
chant and ex-reeve of this place was
the speaker and he evidently meant
every word he said.
"It was the Inflammatory kind of
Rhumatism I had and it crippled me
up so that I could hardly get around
to do my work in my store. I had
the best doctors and everything in
the line of medicines I could hear of,
but nothing even gave me relief.
"Then I tried Dodd's Kidney Pills
and six boxes cured me completely."
Dodd's Kidney Pills cure Rheumatism by curing tlie Kidneys. Rheumatism is caused by Uric Acid in the
blood. If the Kidneys are right they
will st-aln all the Uric Acid out of
tho li >od and the Rheumatism wlll
go wiih it.
THE BABY'S EARS.   .
Ther Really ll,*<i,ilre Attention Prom
the Moment or Birth.
The ears nre quite as Important little
members to be cared for as the eyes,
and when the.v stand out from the head
they are anything but ornamental.
From earliest infuuey be careful to see
tlmt tlio cars nre nlways kept bnck in
plnce. When the child Is lying on his
Bide be sure that the eur is lying flat
against the head, not folded over toward the face. Be enreful thnt the
child lies on one side as much as on the
other. If he lies always on one side the
ear on the opposite side Is npt to stand
out a little more than the one on which
he lies. Nurses when putting children's
caps on are often careless lu not seeing
that the ears are pressed Hat against
the head. Time and again when a baby's cap hns been removed have I seen
the little ears red and creased by being
bound forward by the snug cap, and if
baby has thick hair or curls which are
gathered In a little mass behind the
ear they, too, will prevent the ears
from lying back close to the head, especially where tliere is the slightest tendency of the ears to stand out. Tbe
mother or nurse should be very careful
of these little things, for if neglected
until the child is a few months old it Is
not easy then to commence to remedy
this defect. It must be looked after
while the child is very yeung.—Marlan-
na Wheeler in Harper's Bazar.
CULINARY CONCEITS.
Granulated sugar makes a better meringue than powdered sugar.
Save rice water when you have boiled rice for curry, as it makes a very
good foundation for stock or sauce.
In cooking tough fowls or meat one
tablespoouful of vinegar in the wnter
will save nearly two hours' boiling.
Oue cook nlways puts a crust of
bread into the water in which greens
are boiled. Sbe says that the bread absorbs an objectionable rankness of
flavor.
Nearly everything made with baking
powder may be raised equally wetl
with sour milk, buttermilk or soda, allowing one even teaupoonfu) of soda to
each pint of milk.
Beefsteak is often improved by rubbing two teaspoonfuls of salad oil over
it, theu leaving It so for several hours
between two plates. This is said to
soften the meat fiber.
RICB WARN BLOOD
Absolutely     Necessary    to    Health,
Strength    and    Comfort—Good
Blood   Banishes   Disease.
People with rich, red blood do not
feeel the cold of winter. When your
feet are cold, your fingers numb and
your face blue and pinched, it is a
certain sign that your blood ls thin
and your circulation weak. Your
blood needs building up with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. They make new
blood; they stimulate the circulation. The new blood they make races
through your Veins to every part of
your body from finger tips to ,toes,
and makes you warm, happy and
healthy. Mr. Alphonse Lacousslere,
St. Leon, Que., says: "About a year
ago my blood became impoverished
and 1 was badly run down. My hands
and feet were always cold and 1
could not stand the least exertion.
My. trouble was further aggravated
by pains in my kidneys and bladder,
and often I could not go about without aid. I consulted doctors, but
they did not help me, and I was almost in dlspair when I was advised to
use Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. 1 got
six boxes and before they were all
gone I knew I had found a medicine
to cure me. I took the pills for about
a month longer and every symptom
of my trouble was gone, and I have
since enjoyed the best of health."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills curo after
doctors and common* medicines Have
failed because they actually make
new rich blood, and so strengthen all
the organs and brace.up the nerves.
'J his is the way they cure Indigestion,
kidney uud liver troubles, rheumatism,
nervousness, neuralgia, palpitation of
the heart, St. Vitus' dance, part Ial paralysis and the secret ailments that fill
tho lives of so many women with
misery. Do not take any pills without
the full name, Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People," on the wrapper

"THE LAWS OF SICKNESS."
EipUeatlon ot the Principle* mt InturM-M
•nd of Their Application t* Fire, Lite,
Marine and Aeeldeet Ofliee*.
At the Canadian Institute on a recent Saturday night, the paper of the
evening waa by Arthur Harvey.   The
subject was "The Laws of Sickness,"
but it was    prefaced by an explana-
1 tion  of the    principles of insurance
| and    of    their application   to    fire,
j marine, life and accident offlceB.   Mr.
Horvoy having framed the first   in-
! iuranos law  of the  Dominion,     and
having had chargo of important   insurance interests, was enabled to take
a broad view   of   the   field,   and   to
bring forward    view* whioh    cannot
be Ignored.
AU iasuronco was said, to depend
on the persistence of averages, apropos of which tome curious instances
were given. From this persistence
those who make a study of thc ratioa
connected with any class of happenings, hoped to derive a financial advantage, which was quito legitimate.
If there were no such means of .estimating risks, insurance would bs
mere gambling, and not the serious
work it ia for the actuary and his
backers.
Mr. Harvey thought fire insurance
the most difficult of the main branches of insurance, on account, of the
constant and rapid changes In the
circumstances which cause'hazard. He
recalled the changes of fuel from
wood to coal, and of lighting, from
candles to burning fluid and korosene;
electric lighting, once claimed to prevent all danger from artificial illumination, had proved to be a frequent
cause of loss. Elevators were the occasion for now anxieties to insurance
people. The filling up of vacant
spaces in towns and cities, due to
their increase in population, tended
to the spread of fires, and the enlargement of business, which now
made into a large store what were
really several tenancies under ona
roof, had to be paid for in the increased risk or cost of insurance.
While the gradual rise in the rate of
fire premiums for some years past
was, perhaps, due to combinations
among companies, he was inclined to
think there had been a real increase
of hazard in the business quarters of
rising towns and cities, with which
protective systems had hardly kept
pace.
He thought, however, that if the
coYnpanies would combine to keep
down their expense account, thn
premiums which had prevailed would
be found sufficient to allow of a fair
profit. These premiums now amounted ln Canada to twelve million dollars a year, and the increase was
fairly constant, but thc losses were
Irregular, and had varied from 30
per cent, of the premiums in 1902 to
225 per cent, in 1897, and this inequality proved the necessity for
large capitals and reserves, for tho
Canadian field was evidently not
large enough to "establish an average."
Canadian capital ought not to attempt to monopolize Canadian fire
business, and no steps should be
taken which would discourage foreign
companies employing their capital
here. Tho official figures plainly
showed that there had been little, if
any, profit made by fire insurance
companies In Canada.
This led to a brief discussion of
municipal Insurance, to which, on the
whole,  Mr.   Harvey  was opposed.
As to life insurance, the author's
▼lews were adverse to Govornment
inspectorates and superintendoncies.
He could not sea why insurance
should be treated differently from
other kinds of savings companies,
where obligations covered in many
cases quite as long a period as insurance policies. Moreover, tho superintendence was a false reliance; tho
guarantee was the caro of thc directors and managers in making sound
investments.
Thore was here a digression to answer the question, "Is life insurance
a good investment?" Examples were
gfven to show the merchantable valus
of losg-standing life policies, and to
coatlast therewith the sums that the
premiums would have amounted to
by careful investment at fair current
rates. Of course, the companios had
realized the latter sums, often sovor-
al times tho face of the policies, and
many times thoir soiling values. Mr.
Harvey know that many peoplo
grumbled at this, but it was thc fortune of life, and they should reflect
their contributions had relieved many
an anxious heurt and benefited many
a widow and bereaved family. There
was a remedy, to bo satisfied with
less protection and to tako tho benefit Jn tho shape of an endowment.'' '
This naturally led to thb bojfftder-'
otion of the sick and fune'ful "benefit
provided by fraternal societies. .As
an actuary, Mr. Harvoy had several
times been called in to value tho
liabilities of such societios, for comparison with their assets, and he had
not found one which charged fees
enough to be really solvent. Tlie
laws of sickness were hern expounded,
and shown to be even less variable
than the laws of mortality. • Tho
deficiencies in the ordinary rates wero
pointod out and a tarill given which
it was thought would sullice, under
honest management and without
being hampered by Government red
tape.
The paper condiirled with an exposition of the' (lermnn system j of
wago-oarners' insurance, which Mr.
Harvey did not think would lxs acceptable to our people, or even financially prefer**li to our existing
methods. Some form of support in

NEEDS OF THE HAiK.
The  Greatest  Are  Cleanllneaa,  Ten*
Illation and  Friction.
The flrst and greatest needs of the
hair are cleanliness, friction and ventilation. Give your halo a sun bath
once lu awhile, and the silky strands
will fairly laugh with happiness. For
some crazy reason there are many Individuals who will not wash their heads
often enough to keep the hair decently
clean. We are not water animals and
do not need to soak our topknots every
day, but it is a pretty plain fact that
once every week or two t)ie hair should
be carefully washed. If there is an inclination to dandruff or if tbe hair ls
subjected 'to an unusual amount of
dust, a weekly shampoo is an absolute
necessity.
By using eggs Instead of soap there is
no danger whatever of causing the hair
to become harsh and brittle. Eggs are
as cleansing ns soap, and the sulphur
contained In them acts ns a tonic to
the growth. When eggs are used the
wnter should be very hot and tho hair
rubbed vigorously so that the eggs
will make good live suds. No soap is
necessary.
When the hair persistently suffers
from loss of vitality it is usually from
one or more of the following causes-
Dncleanllness, lack of cnre, anxiety,
worry, late hours, overstudy, want of
exercise or disease. Dyspepsia is responsible for many thinned out halos.
Tho hair, being the most delicate of
the body's formation, is the flrst tc
show that the body Is not receiving
sufficient nourishment. The use of
harmful restoratives or dyes will frc-
quently cause the hair to become gray
and broken. One ennnot be too carefu

That staunch Canadian institution

one-half of the capital stock and placing a funner $500,000 at the disposal
of the directors in order that the losses
incurred in the Baltimore and Toronto
conflagrations might be met without
disturbing the reserve funds of the
company. The fifty-fourth annual

FRUIT GROWING IN
MANITOBA.
Not many years ago it was the general belief that cultivated fruits could
not be grown in the prairie region of
Western Canada. While it was be-
leved that there was a great future
for the country in the production of
cereals, fruit growing was looked upon
as impossible. For cereal crops Western Canada has already achieved a
record unsurpassed anywhere in the
world, while even in fruit growing we
are gradually passing the experimental stage. A few enthusiastic horticulturists refused to accept the general verdict tuat fruit could not be
grown here. They began experimenting with various fruits, and to their
efforts is due the knowledge that many
fruits can be grown to advantage in
this country. Great credit is due these
men, who spent their time and money
in carrying on, this experimental work,
'i hey have accomplished much ln the
Interest of the people of Western Canada, for which they deserve hearty
thanks.
Among the pioneers of horticulture
in the Wset we may mention the name
of the late W. B. Hall, of Headlngly,
Man., who achieved considerable success In growing small fruits and crab
apples. Another name that deserves
to be held n lasting esteem by the
people of Manitoba for the work accomplished in this line, is that of the
late Thos. Prankland, ot Stonewall.
Besides small fruits Mr. Frankland
succeeded in growing several varieties
of apples, plums and crabs, and he
also produced a few cherries of the
Morello class. His crowning effort
was the production of a few pears—
the only fruit, of this class ever grown
In Manitoba. The pear tree which
produced ths fruit passed out of existence thc same winter that this tireless horticulturist ceased his labors
and passed to his long home. Another man who has been very successful in fruit-growing In Manitoba
is A. P. Stevenson, of Nelson. That
gentleman has done much in demonstrating that the standard apples can,
under the right conditions, bo grown
here. Since the estnblshmont of the
Dominion government experimental
farms at Brandon iind Indian Head,
much valuable work bas been done by
those institutions, not only in testing
varieties of fruit, but also ln learning
tho best methods of cultivating and
protecting them. Our grain farmers
early   learned   that   the   methods of
cultivation practiced in Eastern Canada would not. do for the West. This
is also true of fruits. When our people learn the best methods of cultivating fruit crops, the cause of much of
tne luck of success tii the past will bo
apparent.
Most extensive experimental, work
in fruit growing has for some years
been goini? on at Buchanan's nurseries, St. Charles, Man. Here experiments on a large scale have been
undertaken, not only to discover hardy
varieties of fruits adapted to growing
in Manitoba and the Territories, but
also to learn the methods of cultivation and growing best suited to this
country.    Plant! and trees have been
tested, not. of a few Individual sped-
metis, but by the thousand, and a groat
deal of valuable Information has been
accumulated, In currants, which are
one of the hardiest kinds of fruit, over
i'.r> varieties have been grown successfully, including red, white and black
varieties,   in raspberries, the number
of Varieties tested is even much linger,
nnd Includes red, yellow, black and purple vareties. A few varieties have
fruited well for several years without
any winter protection. It Is an eflBy
mutter, however, to bend raspberry
canes to tho ground and cover them
during winter.    Twenty or more var
ieties of gooseberries are grown, a
few of which have also produced enormous crops of fruit, without protection. Bushes requiring protecton can
easily be covered with brush, which
gathers the snow and affords an excellent cover. Splendid results have
also been attained with strawberries.
The results of experiments wiih these
fruits would lead to the conclusion
tnat with proper methods our farmers
should be able to supply themselves
with an abundance of all these healthful fruits, including currants, gooseberries, raspberries and strawberries.
Blackberries have also been grown at
the same nurseries. Mr. Buchanan
exhibited some very fine samples of
blackberries last season, Including one
sample about as large as a man's
thumb. These berries, however, are
generally regarded as too tender for
general cultivation here.
in tree fruits, some very fair cherries
have been produced. The sand cherry
is regarded by Mr. Buchanan as the
most promising sort for this country.
By careful propagation it is believed
that Improved vareties will be secured
W-ich will be well worthy of extensive planting. Many varieties of the
Americans and other species of plums
have been tested. The only plums
which have proved hardy (except, of
course, our native wild plums, Prunus
Nigra) are some of those belonging
to the American species. Many varieties of this species, however, do not
ripen here beforo tho frost comes.
Extensive planting has been done with
apples. Including all the hardy Russian and Minnesota varieties, and a
number of the trees are promising.
Quite a number of the large crabs or
hybrid apples have reached the fruiting stage. Somewhat extensive experiments have also been carried on
ln testing ornamental trees and
shrubs. Mr. Buchanan has recently
issued a catalogue which gives a list
of the various apples, crabs, plums,
small fruits and ornamental trees and
shrubs which have proved hardy here.
This list will be sent to anyone who
will ask for It.

air ls full of pneumnola germs, and as
soon as your body is weakened they attack you.
It is best to prevent pneumonia, and
this can be done by wearing warm
clothing, eating nourishing food, and
not doing anything which might lead
to catching cold.
If you have exposed yourself, take
a few drops of "Psychlne." This
will strengthen you and prevent 'the

The symptoms of pneumonia are
a general feeling of dullness and
langour, quick, short breathing, short
hacking cough, oppression in the

China's resources of coal and iron
are among the largest aad most favorably situated in the world. The extent

at 400,000 square miles—more than
seventy times the aggregate extent of
all the coal fields of Great Britain. It
is expected that very soon Chinese
coal will be delivered at Far Eastern
ports at prices with which no other
coal can possibly compete, and that
China. In consequence of this development, will become a large exporter of

FRIDAY, MARCH 24, 1905.
KllITOItlAL   UKOHPINUa.
Grand Trunk Pacific officials have
prepsred for the adrcnt of their road
on the coast by purchasing 17,000
acres of coal lands in the Telqua valley, 60 miles south of Hazelton.
According to the minister of finance
the amount of gold held in reserve by
the dominion, on January l,amouuted
to $35,306,823, while the banks held in
specie $17,617,589. It is a popular
fallacy among westerners that Canada
possesses no gold and the finance
minister's information will dissipate
many erroneous ideas as to Canada's
financial position.
Last week Hon. Mr. Fielding gave
parliament some interesting information regarding the Royal Canada mint
to be established at Ottawa. The
equipment and appliances for coinage
will cost $64,000, with tn estimated
expenditure per year for operation of
$75,000. The staff will be appointed
by the Imperial treasury, a deputy
master of the mint, assayer, superintendent, master mechanic and chief
clerk being seut out from England,
the remainder of the staff being Canadians. The capacity of the mint will
lie about 400,000 pieces per week.
There will be three presses, one of
them capable of turning out 200,000
pieces in forty-eight hours. The
charge for coinage will be three cents
per ounce for bullion not exceeding
500 ounces, and two cents an ounce
for over that amount. It is not known
how much money would be coined for
the British government.
After spending five weeks on the
coast, General Manager Morse, of the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, hns
departed for the east, in a very bad fit
of the sulks. He hnd used every in
fluence at his command to induce the
provincial government to bonus bis
rond through the northern part of the
province with a large laud grant, but
signally failed, the government absolutely refusing to part with n single
acre. Mr. Morso wishes the public
to understand that so far as his company is concerned, the negotiations
will never be renewed; their agreement
with the dominion government left it
optional with the company to commence construction from either end of
tho road, and they would build from
east to west; and that, as they had till
1911 to complete the road, they would
not touch the B.C. portion of it till the
last possible moment. What a temper
the good man bas put himself in, and
one would think all sorts of dire misfortunes would now happen to the
province in consequence. But the
people, not the grafters, will hardly
he convinced of this; rather will they
be inclined to congratulate themselves
upou the province escaping from tho
evils of a mighty wrong. All honor
to the government for standing to their
guns and refusing to part with the
heritage of the people. For the first
time in provincial history a government has lieen found brave enough to
withstand tho demands of a powerful
corporation-aided and abetted by
dominion government influence, immense capital, and intrigues of wirepullers. The Grand Trunk wanted
about 30,000,000 acres of laud, valued
at least at $1 an acre, but they secured
nothing, and British Columbia is today that much better of. The company have their bonds guaranteed by
the dominion for the major cost of the
mountain section of their road, and
that should be enough—as, indeed,
the B.C. electorate wore led to believe
it would be at the general elections,
hence the "solid seven." But as the
the philosopher has it: "You can fool
all the people some of the time, nnd
some of thp people all of the time, but
you can't fool all the people ali the
time." The Grand Trunk Pacific will
come to the coast iu due time, aud
they will oome without a land bonus.
too British Columbia is no longer
an easy mark, thanks to tbe Conservative party.
