New   Westminster,  April  29.���������The  Royal City is now a.shipping point  for northern liners. Since" thc Great  Northern has come ,to run regularly  into this city several large shipments have been made here of freight  from eastern cities en route to the  north. Whether . this trade will  grow to large proportions remains  to lie seen.  The latest shipment is one OX      a  thous-aud tons of steel rails to be used  in ithe north  in  thc construction  of the Dawson, Grand Forks      and  Stewart River  Railway.    The peculiar     fact is  that  these rails  were  transhipped      fiom  Seattle, and  arc  now  being loaded  on scows in     the  Fraser River.   They are to be towed  to     Skagway by  the steamer Alk-i,  which arrived in the river yssterday  from the north.  From Skagway they will be sent in  hy the White Pass & Yukon route,  and from White Horse they will go  elown thc river in scows. The first  thousand tons of rails will probalily  suffice to build about thirty miles of  the road, and another thousand tons  are waiting in. Seattle ready to be  shipped north when needed.  Mr. Henry Gray, who is representing the London capitalists interested  in the railroad, is at,piesent in   thc  city.     He   states that the   Dawson,  Grand     Forks     and '"Stewart River  Railway  Corporation is the successor of  the old   Klondike Mines  Railway     Company,  to which a charter  was granted some time.ago.

Mr. Gray -.explained-  tliat it was the intentie.n of the company   to  extend   the  road  at    some  .iilure time  to make connection with  the White Pass  &  Yukon route     at  ���������''While Horse.

Bet tin, April 20.���������An intimate con-  neclion between'influenza and spotted  fever,     or cerebro-spinal-meningitis,  now epedemic in Germany, is surmised  by some German investigators of  the  cause   of   the  disease.   Scientists  appear not to be .fully, satisfied that  the  baccilus  meningoccoccus  is     the  sole cause of the disease since      the  same bacilhis is present in pneumonia. ' The.   so-called   pfciffcr, baccillus  which -causes  influenza has  been discovered in a number of cases of irnen-  ing-itis.    The  epedimic   literally  has  assumed      a serious form of silesia.  Sporadic     cases     are now reported  daily from nearly all  rarts  of Germany, '      j  $ ^-^>,/J-..V-l    "���������"- _���������-��������� i ������������������*���������������������������������������    "1  11  "gig���������  THC DAILY LtOGER  |*ublished   every day except Sunday  BY        THE       DAILY        LEDGER  COMPANY.
