RUSSIA WILL SEND TROOPS  TO THE CHINESE  Late dispatches from St. Petersburg- state that Rus  sias near-ultimatum to China and the reply froni China is  unsatisfactory, and that the Czar has ordered troops to  the Chinese frontier with the object of of at once seizing  the Kuldja district in Chinese Turkestan.  The Chinese reply falls far short of the Czar's demands. China says that the granting of Russia's demands  (would give the latter a commercial monopoly of Mongolia,  even excluding Chinese trade. Russia demanded "freedom  | to trade and liberty to travel and residence to Russian  subjects in Mongolia and the territory behind the Great  Wall." China contends that this is unwarranted and not  provided for in the treaty of 1881.  In her reply China agrees to the establishment of  Russian consulates at all the points mentioned by Russia  except Chenguasua, but insists that article 12 of the' treaty  providing for the withdrawal of traffic exempting when*  ever trade warrants the establishment of a Hsasian consulate be adhered to. This denies Russia's general contention for freedom from Chinese tariffs.  mend   his clothes; who can cook  On Monday tbe west] his fooil with economy and' flavor  to bis taste.  Why? Why? Why?

Not much is likely to come out  of the pother and smoke raised in  the legislature by Dr. McGuire's  resolution on the question of the  price of coal. If the government  were really sincere* in this matter in the* public interest and  were not trying1 to hocus pocus  thr penplr in the Mackenzie &  Maun interests it cmild yery  quickly arrive at the facts without laying the cn-ie he fore the  Domitiiou government and at tbe  same time* protect the interests  of the watered *U..ck in Mackenzie's coal mines.  Mackenzie acquired control of  those mines by the very simple  expedient of taking au option on  them for $11,000,000; While the  option was in lonv he bonded  them for ten million, which he  used to pay lor them, ffe and  his aHsor.lates still have ten millions sti ck in them which cost  them around a million .dollars  Even if the bonded price is uot an  inflated one, which is more than  probable, it is a certainty there  is abmit nine millions* of watered  stock in the concern.  It was to pay dividends on this  vast iiilUtion that Mackenzie  tried to get other coal companies  to raise the price of coal a dollar  a ton to consumers. However,  the other operators knew the  temper of the public better than  McKenzie did, and refused to gu  into the arrangement ���Sunset.  A Light oh Maternity  The late Williams James Harvard's famous psychologist, would  often illuminate a misty subject  with an appropriate anecdote.  Discussing motherhood in a  lecture on psychology, Prof.  James once said: "A. teacher  asked a boy this question in fractions:  "Suppose your mother baked an  apple pie aud there was seven of  you-*���the parents and five children. What part of the apple  wonld you get for your portion?"  41 A sixth, ma'am,'the boy answered. "But there are seven of  you,' said the teacher. Don't you  know anything about   fractions?'  "Yes ma'aiu,' said the bov, 'I  know all about fractions, but I  know all about mother, too.  Mother'd say she didn't want no  piel"  5000 Facts About Canada.

It is  a marvel of condensation, presenting in small space striking  figures relating to every phase  and department of Canada's resources, trade  and  national life.  Its popularity and large sjile'  can easily be understood, in tact..  it is, as has been said, "worth its  weight in Cobalt silver or Yukon  gold."

Some little  sufferer is sent to school with a sore  of this nature. At play the children  change caps, and right there the infection is  spread���the  damage done.  Some children are particularly liable to scalp sores, etc., and often  these break out with annoying frequency. Such a case was that of the  daughter of Mrs. Albert Gaedike, of  485 Amherst St., Montreal. Mrs.  Gaedike says: "My little three year  old daughter suffered frequently from  sculp disease, and try as-we would,  we ((inUl not rid the little one of this.  We tried everything we could think  of, but failed to effect a cure, until  wc were advised to try Zam-Buk.  This balm seemed entirely different to  anything we had ever tried before,  and from first applying it there was a  marked improvement. The sores be-  came less inflamed and less irritable.  After a few days, they ceased to  trouble the child; and in less than a  fortnight from first commencing with  Zam-Buk, they were completely  healed. In view of these facts I feel  it my duty to let mothers know how  beneficial Zam-Buk is."  There is no doubt that for scalp  sores, ringworm, ulcers, abscesses,  cold cracks, chapped hands, frostbite,  and similar sores, Zam-Buk is absolutely without, equal. It is just as  good for piles varicose sores, poisoned  wounds, cuts, burns and scalds. Rubbed well in over the affected part; it  cures rheumatism, sciatica, etc., etc.,  and rubbed into the chest it relieves  the tightness and feeling of weight  due to contracting a bad cold.

Greenwood  and    Phoenix  Play Second Game of  1 the Series.  The Rossland Miner has the  following to say about the second  game of hockey, which was played between Greenwood and Phoenix: "   '  "The Greenwood combination  was the-onlv one in the Carnival  to play their usual line-up, the  other teams being considerably  strengthened. Certain Nelson  players telephoned asking if they  could come to Rossland to play  for Greenwood, but the Boundary team informed them there  was nothing doing.  "As Phoenix were the champions of the Boundary league they  were favorites, although general  sympathy lay with Greenwood.  The line up was:  Phoenix , Position Greeuwood  GOAL  Lang C.  McCarthy  POINT  Neill Cliff Russell  C. POINT  McVVha   E. McCaugherty  ROVBR  Sautid>rs G. MacDonald  CRNTRK  r.ynne F. McCarthy  LEFT WING  Ouilett D. J. MacDonald  RIGHT WING  Thrasher   - Clerf  A. F' H. Clark, Missoula, referee; Mercer, Rossland, judge of  play.  "Right from the face-off the  Phoenix team attacked and Ouilett. scored, well within 15 seconds. This sudden reverse did  not have any bad effect on Greenwood, who .pressed strongly and  McCaughtery put in a shot which  just missed the goal. Another  breakaway by Phoenix was negatived by off-side, but eight minutes from the start Lynne scored  the second for Phoenix, and three  minutes later added a third. It  looked at this  time as if it wer  going to be a  rutia.way.fof Phoc-.  nix, for,   try as   they would, the '  Greenwood team could not pene- j  r.  trate  the  strong  defense.     Just j  at the  close of   the  first   period  Greenwood    did -get    the   puck  through, but   as   the  referee had  rung the bell on account of a man  being hurt, as he thought, it was  not allowed.  In Hie second period, in spite  ot the fact that they were three  goals behind. Greenwood went at  it finely and in "two- minutes P;  McDonald scored with a lightning shot. The cheers that greet  ed this success.urged thcni'on mi'l  Phoenix had all they could do !������  keep their opponents out..

McCaugherty put. on a  goal for Greenwood with.a long  shot and sometime later F. McCarthy added a third. ' Phoenix,  retaliated with, one from Saunders and Cliff Russel grave.

The Real Estate Fever, wr  The recurrence of the-speculative fever is responsible for an.  awakening in the western-;; real  estate market, and a great Ideal  of noise is being created by certain interested elements for their  own benefit. There is> no doubt  that the prosperity and continued  development will give increased  value to land in all parts, of the  country. Opportunities fpr! legitimate investments will be off  fered, and healthy profits..wil1 be  secured.  There is a limit to real estate  investment, however, and an el-  fort should be made to check; tb��  fever which is now breaking ;out*.  Many-people know to their.son:.  rovy that success iu land deals;  requires close attention to 'market  condttionH and an intimate kiibwj-  edge of values. Men who specialize in that branch of business  activity are the only'ones' who  are in a position to form accurate opinions. Others should  leave the speculative field and  attend to their own business.  Warnings without ' number'  have beeu issued to merchants  about the danger's of'"real'estate  gambling, and most of "'these.  have been disregarded.-' The  temptation to "take a flyr-V" at  an attractive proposition'usually  overcomes Hip scruples' based'on  obligations to creditors. 'The  situation is not hopeless-, and if  is possible that thc dangers may  seen in time to be avoided/ If a  merchant intends to speculate'in.  real estate, let him abandon the  arena of retail trade.

The relations of Russia and  China are strained to the breaking point. Russia notified the  governments of Great Britain,  France and Germany of ner intention to make a military demonstration on the Russia-Chinese  frontier .owing to China's persistent violation of the St. Petersburg Treaty of 1881. Russian  troops will be sent forthwith to  the district of Hi. The extent of  the demonstration, it is added in  the diplomatic note, will depend  entirely on the attitude assumed  by China. The vital question involved are free trade in Mongolia,  the extra territorial concession of  Russians in China, and the establishment of a Russian consulate  at Keobdo, Mongolia.

An increase of 22 in the number  of cases of typhoid fever at Ottawa brings the total number  registered at the city hall up to  601. The fever continues to develop at an alarming rate, and in  Water Street hospital, . death  claimed its twenty-second victim  since the outbreak of the epidemic. At the emergency hospital there are 89 cases of typhoid  fever. The nurses' quarters are  being moved to the annex and  their rooms will be used as wards  making rooms for about 40 more  patients.

A turn of  the lever instantly changes the draft so the fire is quickened  or checked, at will. Turned on, McClary's Magnet Wood*  Furnace produces the strongest heat in a few minutes; and  the nickelled steel tubes radiate this heat for hours after  the draft is shut off. Because of this stored heat McClary's  Magnet Wood Furnace is economical and a continuous roaring fire is unnecessary. The heat that goes up the smoke pipe  of ordinary wood furnaces, goes into the register pipes of the  Magnet. Like the position of the damper, the Magnet Wood  Furnace is right all through. Right in principle, right in construction; right in materials. See the Magnet at the McClary  agent's in the nearest town. Write to nearest McClary branch  for booklet, giving a detailed description.

Iii America, lhe British appear  to lead in the amount of tniney  invested by foreign ��� countries in  mining ventures. The French  public, which has the reputation  of investing prodigious amounts  iu enterprises abroad, and which  has in factcontributed largely to  American industrial corporations  seems, comparatively, to have neglected the mining industry in  this country. The English funds  tied up in the mines in the United. States reach the sum of ,��21,-  500,000, or $107,500,000, approximately. T.his doee not .include  funds, probably exceeding $50,-  000,000, invested' by tlje British  in the steel corporation, smelters,  mining lands, and in similar in-  vestments only indirectly, though  insepeiably connected with mines.  All in all, British capital invested  in the United States reaches the  monster total of ^,'688,000,000, of  which nearly ^600,000,000 is in  railway securities. In Canada,  the visible investments of British  capital reach ^373,000,000, with  an additional yearly influx of over  30,000,000 . in progress.

Object to Being Excluded.  The London A=sociated Chambers of Commerce has resolved to  make representations to the  Colonial office regarding the new  law of taxation of commercial  travellers in British Columbia as  a. consequence of which large  numbers ceased to send representatives to the extreme west.  The Colonial office points out  as there have been several occasions when tbe Dominion government has complained of the legislative acts of British Columbia,  it is possible that the offending  act may come before the Privy  rnuiir.il for review.  The Speech of a Statesman  While Champ  Clark's  opinion  tliul lhe   ultimate destiny ol   the  United Slates  and   Canada is   to  become   one   people   will   receive  very little attention in diplomatic  circles   in   Europe,   tbe   reply of  the   United   States   Secretary of  State will be  regarded as ol   the  utmost   importance.     Mr.    Knox  bas gone   farther iu his expressions of   friendship and esteem for  Great Britain   and   Canada  than  either   John   Hay or   Mr.   Root  could have done.    When it is remembered that only fifteen years  h'ave   elapsed   since   Mr.   Cleveland's      notorious      Venezuelan  message, with its   threat of war,  tbe change in  the outlook of the  political   leaders  of   the United  States seems little short of marvellous.-  Mr. Knox in the couise of his  Chicago speech   said:    ''If  there  should be any great world movement involving this continent,  Canada and the United Stales  would, as a mailer ol course, act  in tlie most perfect concert in defence of the roiumon rights of a  common blood and civilization.  Tbe United Stales recognizes  with satisfaction that the Dominion of Canada is a permanent  North American political unit,  and tbat her autonomy is secure.  The United States appreciates  the addition to the common welfare of the continent tbat Canada contributes in heT own strength  plus the strength ol Great Britain."  Mr. Knox is right. Canada is  a permanent political unit. Her  place on the American continent  is not that of a hostage for the  continuance of good relations between Great Britain and the  United States, but of a free nation proud of her positron as the  greatest of the oversea States of  the Empire. It is well that men  so influential in the moulding of  public opinion in the Republic as  Secretary Knox understand the  national aspirations of the Dominion and make them plain to  their fellow-citizens. The speech  of Mr. Knox was the speech of a  statesman  The Panama Canal  The completion of the Panama  Canal means a tremendous increase in the Pacific coast trade  of British Columbia.  California has appropriated  .S47,ij()0,o0lJ to finance and to prepare for the Panama-Pacific International exposition in PH5.

The Rush For Canada  The imigration rush to Canada  for l*ill is on. The advance  guards from England will arrive  some time this week. Scouts  have already put in their appearance to look over the ground.  The Grand Trunk, the C. P.

The starting ol the grand  rush of immigrants the first  week in February is eloquent of  "tbe popular feeling in England  for Canada as a land of opportunities, for lhe immigration  agents discourage as much. as  possible the coming of new settlors lo lb is country before March.  Thousands Are Dead.  The viceroy of Manchuria estimates the fatalities in Manchuria of bubonic plague at f*5,-  000," while the foreign office believes that inside the great wall  there have been 1000 more deaths.  It is the belief, however, th,at the  number of deaths will be nearly  double the official estimates.

According to advices received  at Washington from the American consul, none of lhe plaguo-  slricken people recover.

Subsequently  searchers were sent out and these  Slowing Passing  Can any broad-minded s man look  over this situation with a keen, open  mind, and not come to the conclusion  that Canada is slowly passing from  the list of protectionist countries?  We are not arguing against protection, or in favor, but simply trying to  face the facts squarely. We are  simply repeating our warning, that  the advocates of free trade are doing  broader and more effective work than  the advocates of protection. If Canada moves towards free trade  as fast in the next five years as it has  in the past five years, there will be a  tarriff for revenue only instead of a  tarriff for protective features. When  the Democrats came into power in  the United States Congress, as they  likely will shortly, what is to prevent  their enlarging the present reciprocity  arrangements so as to include many  other lines of manufactured goods?  Is there any reason to believe that the  farmers of Canada are likely to be  content with their present victory.  Langford Defeats Bill Lang  One of the largest crowds which  ever witnessed a. prize fight in London  was on hand last Tuesday when Bill  Lang, the Australian champion, and  Sam Langford, the Boston ' Tar  Baby" entered the ring for their 20-  round contest- Both fighters looked  fit and with the added incentive of a  probable battle with jack Johnson for  the world's championship each was  confident of victory. The fight was  for a guaranteed purse of $15,000 at  Hugh Mcintosh's Olympia annex.  Langford ruled favorite before the  fight, odds of 10 to 7 being offered  oh the negro.  Lang restorted to rough tactics in  the sixth round and fouled the American scrapper. He was disqualified  and the fight given to Langford. He  slipped down while making a swing  at Lang and the Australian punched  him before he got on his feet.  Guests at the Hotels  Windsor: G. Hv Jernberg, Van-  couver; J. F.
