DebBtt on tlm Spaaoh From (lie Throne—
Fer the pint Time in Hlatory of tho
Provlnoe the Art rivets U Adopted
Without n Olvlalou,
The debate ou the address from the
throne began on Monday, The mover,
M:-. Ross, Fernie., and the seconder,
Mr, Tay)or, Revelstoke, both made
masterly speeches, whieh were listen'
ed to with interest by both house and
galleries. A notable feature in the
remarks of both gentlemen was thai
tin y did uot merely echo the terms
from the speech from the throne, but
showed plainly that they had made a
d lep and careful Btudy of the moro
important legislation to be brought
before thr- bouse, and bad formed def;
inii.' opinions of their own on thc matter.
Speaking of the minin',' industry.
Mr. Hoss suited tbere was to be noted
a steady improvement*, the returns at
the close of the veiir just past amounted ti close to $20,000,000. This return
v. a-, he belioved, equal to that of 1901,
which had hitherto been regarutsci
the banner year of the mining industry in the province. Better prices for
mineral* had prevailed during the
year, aud zinc, formerly of uo valuo,
hnd lie:- mi" a marketable product.and
would be a strong factor in future iu
the districts where its presence had
hitherto been regarded as a drawback;
The present government on its ac*
ci ssion t" power had found itself faced by a debit balance "I $71,829.
Moreover thero were, in addition, contracts which had pledged tho credit of
the proviuce i" some$800,00 I. Today.
however, in spite ol tbat heavy handicap al iis Rtart, the g iverumeut could
point, at the cloio of the lirst fiscal
year, to the surplus of revenue over
■ A;- uditureol $27,706.95. Moreover,
it was to Ik' :vm-ui!,er-d that there
was an item included in theexpeudt*
hue  t-coiiat  of   the    la-'.    lUcai yo ir ,
which   bad   always   previously beeu '
charged to  capital  account, namely,
the  interest  on   railway ruarantees,
amountiug to $51,000.   [f, therefore,
the present statement  li id beeu ren
ci -r.-d. as bad  be >u d m 1 too often in
tho past, for the pi rpose ol showing
an apparent, in-., id of a geuuine,sur
plus, the amount would have beeu iu
the neighborhood ol W0.000.   Small
though the prosenl surplus might be,
it was none the less the lii-t thnt pro !
rincial   financiers   had been able io
■ \i"'.\ lor _'<i years; and it was a matter
for distinct pride that tbis new era of
surpluses should  be coincident  with \
the beginnin ;  of  11 Conservative re
..na" i;i British ' iolumbia.
While not in a position toforecasl
the government's policy on railway
1 iiittors, Mr. Ross fully endorsed u
bold and progressive line of action,
and thought the government wast-
be commended for going slowly.

Hon. Mr. McBride replied in one of
tho best speeches of the session, successfully refuting the arguments of
Uie opposition leader. Ho ridiculed
the insinuation that the;government
was ruled by the Socialists, as there
was no truth In it. He scored the opposition leader for stating the laws
were killing the mining industry,
pointing out that at home and abroad
the laws were recognized as sound and
geod, many of their features having
been incorporated in the statutes of
other countries. Mining men were
divided on the subject of the two per
cent tax, and the opposition had failed
to suggest a successful alternative.
The fact that last vonr's output of
mineral was above 816.000,000,and the
tax collected was only $06,000, was
evidence enough that the laws were
imposing no burden on the mining industry.
The premier's speech was followed
by enthusiastic applause, even some
of his opponents joining In. A somewhat awkward silence followed,broken
by the voice of Mr. Speaker:
"Are you ready for the question?"
Twice more it was asked, without a
response. Thus, for the first time in
the histpry "a province, the address on the speech from the throue
"■• passed without a division an
a inowlcdgement of weakness and
disunion in the Liberal ranks, which
surprised even those members of the

(■orcriimi'iil I'lll.
The new government bill dealing
with public schools is exciting much
interest throughout the province. It
does away with all previous laws and
amendments nnd is calculated to throw
more of tho burden of financing the
schools on to the people direct.
All schools ara to be tree and bon-
sectnriau. City school districts are to
be of three classes, place- like Slocan
being of the third class, Tho first
ela-s will get $350 a year from the
government; second das- S.';7r>; and
third class >'!*Jn, based on the number
■ if teachers employed. A further per
capita grant is to bo given of a dollar
for every dollar tli" trustees may supplement anv teacher's salary, up to
5100. This would figure out 'to $1040
a year for Slocan.
A voters' list of those entitled to
vote for trustees shall be made oul
each year and added to the ordinary
municipal list, Each voter shall have
as many votes as there are tru-tees to
be elected, but may only give one vote
to one candidate. Voting shall be at
the same time, place, and in the same
manner as municipal elections. Cities
of the third class shall have three
trustees, who hold ollice for two years,
those now sitting holding out ior that
time, Any person being a householder, 21 years of age,and a British sub
ject is entitled to become a trustee or
vote. The trustees shall meet once a
On or before Feb, I in each year the
trustees shall submit a detailed esti
mate of ui uiies required during the
year to the city council, who arc! to
provide the .same. If the council recuse any supplementary sum- required, the trustees have power to submit
It bylaw to the ratepayers to raise the
amount. The city council shall an
nually appoint an auditor t" examine
the trustees' books,and the lxiard shall
stand the expense. In January of
each year the trustees shall publish in
a newspaper for three insertions a detailed statement of their finances for
the past year.
Trustees shnll visit tbe schools at
least 'ince a month and shall provide
all Bchool books required free to pupils whose parents are too poor to pay
tor -ame. The new law is to take effect in January next.
The city council met for the first
time iu its new quartet's on Monday
evening, all the members being in attendance.
Communications read: From Win.
Davidson, M.L.A.. stating ho had interviewed thi! education department
regarding extra school grant to this
city and that the authorities bad it
under consideration.    Filed.
From the snme gentleman, asking
for city's reasons for desiring to amend
the land registry act. Referred to the
city solicitor to answer.
Mr. Davidson also wrote,.enclosing
cony of the new school bill.
Mayor Arnot' had studied the new
school act, but there was nothing in it
providing for outside pupils attending
city schools. It would be cheaper f01'
the government to support the school
here than to erect and maintain a new
school for the outside children. Ho
would like to see Mr. Davidson draw
the attention of the government to
that fact.
Aid. McNeish stated , the trustees
had been hammering at the government for months on the subject.
Aid. Teeter favored the govern ment
granting an extra per capita for the
outside pupils attending the city
school.rather than trustees to be given
power to levy rates on outside property.
Mayor A mot stated that if the government gave no extra grant, the trustees would turn the outside pupils out
of the focal school. It would then
force the government to build a new
school for the outside pupils.
Aid. Teeier moved that Ihe clerk
correspond more fully on the subject
with Mr. Davidson. Seconded by
Aid, Aitchison ami carried.
The clerk reported that he had n -
<■< i'.ed copies of the B. C. statutes for
the past two years.

favor of bills amounting to $35.35,
Ordered paid.
Bylaw No. 24 was brought up and

was taken up. Aid.Teeter moved that
the government be asked to amend
the municipal clauses act giving cities
power to levy rates sullicient to cover
school expenses; and that Win. Davidson, the local member, be asked to
support the amendment. Seconded
by Aid. McNeish and carried.
The Stewart resolution, laid over
from previous meetings, was brought
up and put to a vote, being declared
lost. Aid. McNeish and Aitchison
voted aye and Aid. Teeter, Madden,
and Mayor Arnot nay.
Council adjourned to next Monday
night and after that will meet the first

"I suffered so much with acute Indigestion that I frequently would walk
ihe floor through the long nights,"
said Mrs. Thomas Vincent, residing
at 98 St. Peter street, Quebec. "I had
been afflicted with the trouble," sho
continued, "for upwards of twenty
yeurs, but it was only during the past
year that lt assumed an acute form.
There -were times when I was almost
distracted; everything I ate disagreed
with me and the pains in tho region
of the stomach were almost unbearable. When the attacks were at their
worst my head would grow dizzy and
would throb violently, and sometimes
I would experience severe attacks of
nausea. As time went on I was almost worn out either through abstinence from food or the havoc it
wrought when I did take it. I tried
many much lauded dyspepsia cures,
but they did me no good. In fact 1
got nothing that helped mo until my
nephew urged me to take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. He had used them
himself with the greatest benefit, and
assured me that they would help me.
After I had taken three or four boxes
of the pills there was some improvement, and I continued to take the
pills regularly for about three
months, and at the end of that time
I found myself cured. I could eat a
hearty meal and eat It with relish; I
slept soundly at night, my weight increased, and my constitution generally was built up. I think Dr. Williams' Pink Pills will cure any case
of dyspepsia, if they are given a fair
trial such as I gave them."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure case3
like Mrs. Vincent's simply because
they fill the veins with that rich, red
blood that enables every organ of the
body to do Its work property. That
ls the reason why the pills cure all
blood and nerve troubles such as
anaemia, neuralgia, rheumatism, heart
troubles, skin diseases, St. Vitus
dance, parlysls and the special ailments of growing girls and women of
middle 'age. When you ask for Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills see that you get

It is quite the fashion," she adds,
"to play bridge all and every Sunday, when and wherever possible.
"Country-house 'week-end' parties
this year were all bridge parties.
They were all carefully selected with
an eye to the main chance. The
'play' generally began on Saturday
evening, and went on all through
Sunday up to midnight. One woman,
notorious for her insensate love of
gambling, took lessons in 'cheating'
at bridge before joining her country-
house friends. She came away heavier in purse by five hundred pounds,
but, of thnt five hundred, one hundred and fifty had been won from a

Winnipeg, Man., Feb. 20.—(Special)—Mr. Ben Raff erty, the well-

would be to get rest and sleep, and
they were the very things I could not

Acordlng to a well-founded rumor,
the Dominion Government will during
the present session be urged to Impose a custom duty on grades of fence
wire which are now on the free list.
That such a tax would prove an unjust burden to the farmers of Canada
there is no doubt. In the older parts
of the Dominion the old wooden
fences an being year by year replaced by wire structures, and In tha
Great West, which is rapidly being
Battled, practically all the fencing is
being done with wire in one or other
of its many forms of construction.
Were the kinds of wire most in use
for fence construction manufactured
in Canada, there might be some excuse for imposing an import ax, but
since there are practically no factories for making it in op« "*aticn in
thi Dominion, whom could i>r..:h a tax
That the price of fencing material
would be raised to practically the extent of the dutv there can be no doubt.
This would mean that a duty of 25
or 30 per cent, would impose an extra
tax of $150 to $175 on the fencing required for an average farm. Nor
would the rural community suffer or y
to the extent of an increased expeui.o

deal of farm improvem int .vould be

on knowing the exact fare before getting on the car. The following dialogue ensued:
Commercial Traveler — What's the

Jarvey—Ach, that's alrolght, sorr.

Commercial Traveler — Now, look

Jarvey—Shure, it's alrolght, sorr.

Commercial Traveler—I Insist on
knowing the fare before I get on.
Jarvey—Bedad, sorr, I'm that hard

Needless to say, when the commercial traveler finally got to his destination he was mulcted of an amount
much larger than the legitimate fare,

Editor and Proprietor of the Treherne
One of the peculiarities of Western
Canadian journalism is the fact that
towns—«8 they are by courtesy called
in a country as yet sparsely populated, though elsewhere they would be
deemed pretentious if they ranked
themselves as villages—with but a
hundred or two people, publish good
newspapers. To one whose knowledge <>f newspaper work is derived
from acquaintance with British or
even Eastern cities, no fact is more
notable or remarkable than this, in
those older communities a dense
population is a sine quo non for any
publishing enterprise. A man would

Western Canada ls proverbially a

He was born at Cedar Grove, near

when at the age of four was brought
to the West, his* parents settling at
Melbourne, on the main line of the C.
P. R. Melbourne at that time had ambitions. It hoped to be, if not as big
as Winnipeg, at least the rival of
Portage la Prairie, its dreams of civic
greatness never came within measurable distance of fulfilment. It never
passed the way-station phase of development. Today it has an elevator
or two, a post office, and a watertank,
and It Is doubtful if ever lt will have
more. But In the early eighties Melbourne, as said before, had ambitions.
It was the nucleus of the present town
of Carberry. The town moved on, after a   brief   and   strenuous   nativity,

somo miles west, and called Itself De
Winton. After another period of
strenuosity De Winton did as Melbourne—lt died. The citizens moved
on and founded Carberry, and, overshadowed by its prosperous successor, Melbourne has ever since been
an example of arrested development.
The McMillans moved with the
town, and, naturally, in due time became citizens of Carberry. Hero the
future editor attended school, and,
school days over, started "devilling"
in the office of the Carberry News.
Mr. W. O. Rogers was at that time
tho editor, and gave the youngster
much of kindly advice and encouragement. All accounts agree that Mr.
McMillan was wonderfully adept at
the craft of printing. No further testimony as to this is needed but the
fact that at the age of fifteen he was
made foreman of the News. After a
year of this responsibility he left for
Winnipeg. lie worked on the old
"Saturday Night," then published by
Mclntyre Bros., and from there went
to tho news room of the Free Pre<*s.

summer, and then came back to

while he went back to the Carberry News, the paper he had joined
after leaving school. It 'was then
owned hy Mr. .1. Rldington, and was
regarded as one of the foremost weeklies of Manitoba. Under Mr. McMillan's superintendence the News be-
cam", typographically, one of the best
papers published In the West. It was
while he was foreman on the News
that Mr. McMillan began to qualify for
editorial work, at which he proved as
adept as he hnd in the mechanical departments of the newspaper business.
In September, 1899, he determined
to start for himself, and he selected
Treherne as the centre of his field of
operations. Me was then but 20 years
of age. These were the days of small
things. Hut the business had in it possibilities, and these the boy editor
saw. The business grew. Increases
tn the plant drove Mr. McMillan to n
bigger and better building. The Times
is now housed In Its own 2-ft-story
home, 20x.",7, the office being below
and the residence above. It hns a good
range of body and display type, large
power presses (with onfiino tO drive
theni). and a live circulation of over
Sou. Moreover, it Is a power in the
land. It discusses things from a local
point of view, takes keen interest In
municipal topics, and never lets slip
an Item of news. The Times Is a live
paper. Mr. McMillan is no "scissor
and paste pot" editor, but one who
realizes that his opportunities nnd responsibilities, nnd does his honest
best to live up to them.
Mechanically, he is master of his
craft. He has tho genuine instinct
as to what constitutes news, and Bve
years of training has developed his
inherited gifts for expressing his
thoughts tersely and vigorously. He
is as yet young, and has proved his
ability tO achieve success on the business sule of newspaper work, it
seems unreasonable, therefore, to expect that Mr. McMillan will lout,-continue to personally conduct the Treherne Times. The probabilities are

As au offset to the Trail smelter's
aggrandisement in tho upper camp
after high grade galena ores,the Great
Northern Railway has cut the freight
rate on ores from Sandon to the Nelson smelter from $2.f>0 per ton to $1.-
50. Were the smelters to abolish the
iniquitous sliding scale of charges for
treatment, and stick to their celebrated flat rate of "$15," Slocau mineowners could have a fair run for their
money. Many more properties would
open up and prosperity return to the
country. The railways have reduced
their rates ou zinc and lead ores; will
the smelters be equally generous?
Hawthornthwaite's bill for an flight
hour day for men employed in sniel
ters iu the province met with defeat
pn its second reading last week, by a
decisive majority. Party politics were
dropped for the nonce, Grit and Tory

scattering few for it. Of the twelve
men supporting the bill, Hawthorn-
thwaite and Williams are Socialists;
Davidson, Labor; McNiven, Henderson and Jones, Liberals; Clifford,
Fraser, Houston, Macgowan, Shatford
and Gifford, Conservatives. J. A.
Maedonald, leader of the Liberals,
spoke against the bill but did not
vote, and neither did Attorney-Gene

The dominion bill granting autono

the country and hundreds   of peti
tions are pouriug into Ottawa for par
liament to negative the   proviso.   To
suggest separate schools is to endan
ger the life ofthe Laurier government.
Separate schools for Manitoba proved
a rock on wliich the Conservatives met
disaster, and the Liberals seem to be
courting the same experience with regard to the Northwest.   Canadians do
