ROSSLAND LIBERALS
The Big Land Grant to the
Canadian Northern Is
Condemned.
Rossland, March 13.—The meeting
of the Rossland Liberal association
took place last night and drew forth a
large attendance of members. Various matters of business relating to the
organization were brought ap and
disposed of.
Considerable interest was aroused
by the discussion anent the proposed
land grant to the Canadian Northern
railroad, and before concluding the
following resolution was adopted:
"Resolved that the Rossland Liberal association disapproves ol the giving away of land by way ol bonus to
railways, and consequently protests
against the terms ot the present
agreement entered into between the
provincial government and Ihe Canadian Northern railroad, not only on
account of the enormous amount of
land that the contract gives to the
said railroad but also on account of
its giving an exemption fioui taxation
on these lands lor all time while in
the possession of tbe railroad; a^d
that copies of this resolution be forwarded to all members of the provincial legislature."
The matters mentioned a few days
since with respect to the leadership
of Joseph Martin and the advisability
of directing tbe attention ot the attorney-general to the prevalence of public gambliag in Rassland were not
brought up.
MANY NEW VESSELS".
London, March 14.—The British
admiralty has con'erred with shipbuilding companies regarding the construction of five first-class and two
third-class cruisers aud two battleships.
CECIL RHODES CASE SERIOUS.
Cape   Town,   March  14. — Cecil
Rhodes passed a restless night, which
has apparently told on   bis  general
strength.
TOLSTOI'S CONDITION WORSE.
St. Petersburg, March 14.—A aud-
den change for the worse has taken
place in the condition of Count Tolstoi, who has been ill for some time
past. His weekness is more pronounced today.
HERBERT BOOTH ILL.
London, March 14—The report that
Herbert Booth, third son of General
Booth, who was in command of the
Salvation  Army   in   Australia,   had
withdrawn Irom the army is confirmed
here. Ill health is the cause of the
withdrawal.
LORD SHOLTO AMERICANIZED
Spokane, Wash., March 14.—Lo d
Sbolto Douglas. son of the
late Marques of Queensberry,
who bought a saloon here late
ly, in the "tenderloin," is now selling
boose on the endless chain plan. He
promises to give $3.60 in corn juice
for ten cents. He sells for 60 cents a
certificate containing six coupons. The
buyer sells each coupon to a friend for
ten cents. The friend is euppoRed to
take it to his lordship's wet goods emporium, and pay 60 cents lor a certificate like tbe first one.
When each of the original six coupons has been turned iu, accompanied
by 60 cents for the purchase of a new
certificate, his lordship will have received $3.60. Then he will give $3.60
worth of booze to customer No. I.
Each of the friends who bought a coupon and purchased a certificate, is
then supposed to rustle around among
his friends to sell coupons on the
same plan. Unless all of the six coupons are turned into his lordship, with
(3 60 each, the seller does not get his
corn juice.
It is estimated that if ten series of
certificates Bhould be all sold, his
lordship would take in $36,000,000.
He is said to have cleaned up ^30,000
selling bicycles on this plan in England.
FELL INTO A HOT PLACE.
Albion, Wash., March 14.—The nine
year old sou of Mr. Sliger, a farmer
residing near here, was most horribly burned a day or two since,
A straw stack had been set on fire in
Mr. Sliger's field several days ago and
burned at the bottam of one aide,
leaving the top in shape. The lad
ciimbed to the top of the stack and
fell down into supposed ashes, but
what was really living fire. His body
to the waist was burned nearly to the
bone, several toes of both feet being
burned off. He baa wandered away
to tbe stack by himself, and was trying to get to the house when found.
His suffering was terrible, and recovery doubtful.
TO NOME OR RENO ?
Reno, Nevada, March 14.—A sensational strike was made  in the Wede-
kina mine near this city.   At a depth
I of 27 feet, in a new shaft,   five   feet of

j is gray chloride, corbonate and sulph-
| ide of silver. There are from 10 to 20
! ounces of gold in the rock.

SATURDAY, MARCH 15, 1902
Eight hours make a sufficiently
long day for any class of wage-
workers. Twelve hours of labor seven
days a week makes a short-lived beast
of a man—a mere slave.
The new "union depot" of the R.
& G. P. railway company very much
resembles the toiuier C. P. R. depot,
and is located on the exact spot the
latter used to occupy iu Columbia; in
fact, the Ireiijht and passenger traffic
of both roads is handled at Columbia,
as usual.
People olteu wonder why it is the
Grand Forks Customs office does not
move in up-to-date busiuess circles
and have a ptione ? Is the Government exchecker so emaciated as to be
utitble to afford ii ? Perhaps the donation to the Canadian Northern might
be chipped enough to meet this emergency ?

is no question that John is that. The
Chinese are immune to typhoid fever,
which is something to boast of. They
are terribly subject to consumption.
In comparing the death rate of Chinese with the other population it
must be remembered that the former
is composed entirely of adults in tbe
prime of life." Here is a bit ol evidence by Dr. Walkem of Nanaimo:
"I have seen salads at hotels that
smell of urine. I saw a Chinaman
chew up parsley and spew it into the
pot of soup. I saw a Chinese, to save
the floor, spit into tbe cover of a dsh."

Situation,    Environments   and    General
Re^oi trees.
The Oity of Columbia la 'situated
near the junction of the North Forks
of the Kettle river with the main Kettle river, and is distant about 300
miles east of Tanoouver.
The natural situation of the city for
beauty is not excelled in Ameriea. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie/traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling water, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, fortfiing a charming combination of pieturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center  of  Columbia,  and the
Vanoouver, Tictora A Eastern Railway company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the.(corporation, thus giving
the city connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacific railway com-
Eany has large interests in the city,
aving selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway centre,
The climate, taken all the year
around,'is the best in Canadn—part of
the summer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley
there is an extent of fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated.)
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits gnw
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small fruit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material is plentiful in the,
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, and briok lime and stone
of good quality can always be obtained when required.
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this country, and will
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
throngh the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere prospects a short time sinoe are now large
paying mines.
Water is supplied the oity by pumping from a beautiful spring of excep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfect plant
of the kind in America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
city,
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautible environments, the bright prospeots for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be an educational centre, a city of
homes, as well as a wholesale distributing point; and when finally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest city in the interior.

GOVERNMENT OWNERSHIP
New Yerk, March 14,—Martin A,
Knapp, chairman of tht interstate
commerce commission, delivered a
lecture in Cooper Union, in which he
advocated tbe government ownership
ot railroads. In part, Mr. Knapp said:
"As I vitw this matter.tiie state hasa-i
much right to farm out the business of
collecting its levctiues or preserving
the peace, and allow tbe parties intrusted w.th these duties 10 vary the
rate of taxation according to their own
nterests or to sell personal prottction
to the highestbidder, as it has to permit
great functions of public carriage to be
the subject of special bargains or secret dicker to be made unequal by
favoritism, or oppressive extortion."
Mr. Knapp went on to say that the
highways from the earliest period of
mankind were considered as public
property, and that it was no more than
just and proper that all railroads
should be under government control.
As long as the railroads were owned
by private corporations, be said, those
railroads would be taking unto themselves civil rights which belonged only
to tbe government.
