The Prospects Are Bright
for British Columbia
Points.
Torouto.April 5.— Bradstreets'ssays
today: Only favorable advices come
from Canadian trade ceutres. Fine
weather has helped at Montreal, country orders being liberal and the
Northwestern demand is a feature.
This is also noted at Toronto, which
reports the best trade in years for the
season, low fares having attracted
buyers.
Tbe eagerness of distributors to get
supplies would seem to indicate fears
of a shortage later. Inland navigation
will shortly open and shipments will
he heavy. Trade at British Columbia
coast points is better, shipments to tbe
north being large.
Lumber is active and coal shipments
to San Francisco are heaAy. An increase in the acreage is looked tor iu
wheat in Manitoba. Clearances fur
the first quarter are 20 per cent ahead
of last year, while failures are 13 per
rent fewer. For the week clearings
aggregate $31,813,065; a loss of 22 per
cent from past week and of 10 per ceDt
from last year. Failures for the week
number 1$ against 22 last week, 29 in
in this week a year ago and 25 in 1900.
it is suspected, furnished information
to Congressman Richardson. So far
it has not been successful.

PROSPECTIVE SETTLERS.
Spokane, Wash., April 5.—It is estimated by the immigration committee
of the chamber of commerce that between 300 acd 400 prospective settlers
arrived in Spokane yesterday. It was
the heavipst movement since the recent snop blockades.
DANISH WEST INDIES.
Copenhagen, April 5.—There was an
exciting debate on the Danish West
India islands treaty in the executive
session of the landsthing (upper house)
today, The opposition members violently attacked the treaty and plied
tbe foreign minister with numerous
questions, to which he replied firmly
and clearlv. There is great public interest in the question, and the agitation aud excitement are intense. Both
sides are confident of success. A
strong effort is being made to identify
the members of the  landsthing, who,

It won't do to look at the reverse
side of a tapestry that you admire,
nor is it well to go behind the scene*
if you desire to preserve the illusive
impression derived from a Iront row,
says the New York Herald. Everybody knows tbat grand and impressive ceremonials cannot be obtained
impromptu, and yet there is still in
human nature such a spice of that
curiosity that wrought such havoc in
the Garden ot Eden that we all want
to see l'euvers as well as l'endroit.
When King Edward is crowned in
Westminster Abbey next June the
c»temony will move to majestic music
and will assuredly be most august.
To make sure of this effect it is necessary to have rehersals. Of course,
there is something grotesque in the
spectacle of a grinning "bobby" being
fitted with a mock crown to the accompaniment of thunderous peals
from the great organ and the shrill
voices of th« boy choir; but, alter all,
this doe* not detract from, but really
assures the due impressiveness of the
coming actual event.
A curious and interesting exposition
will be opened iu Antwerp early in
May. Its official title will be the Cartographic, Ethnographic and Maritime, ar.d its object will be to popularize geographical sciences, to make
those countries recently opened to
commercial science better known and
to contribute to the development of
the mercantile marine and of maritime enterprises. One section will be
devoted to ancient and modern maps
and globes, surveying instruments
meteorological and ocean sounding
apparatus, and another will contain
important ethnological collections,
among which will be several Irom the
Congo Free State. There will also be
a colonial section, as well as a department which will be devoted to everything relating to the progress of navigation and in which will be exhibited
models of ships and of great maritime
works, improvements in the art ot
navigation and trophies ot voyage of
exploration.
i storing life in case of drowning or
! suffocation which appears to be more

have in this way been brought to life.
It is called "rythmical tongue-
traction," and consists in the periodical pulling of the tongue from twenty
to twenty-five times per minute. This
can be done with the hand,a handkerchief being wrapped about the tongue, j
but it is more easily and regularly;

chine  driven   by   clockwork.     The j
method has come into use iu many '
hospitals in this country as well as in I
Europe, and the results are regarded
as very valuable. The effectiveness of
tongue-traction is based up >n the fact
that it directly excites the pneumo-
gastric nerve, which is the nerve governing tbe action of the heart and
lungs. In cases of drowning, tongue-
traction is more effecti ve than the old
method of working the arms' up and
down to restore breathing.

Situation,    Environments   and    General
Resources.
The City of Columbia is 'situated
near the junction of the North Porks
of the Kettle river with the main Kettle river, and is distant about 300
miles east of Vancouver.
The natural situation of the eity ton,
beauty In not excelled in Ameriea. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespan?led
rolling prairie.'traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forffiing a charming combination of picturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Paoiflc Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center of Columbia, and the
Vancouver, Victora A Eastern Railway oompany, has looated its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the corporation, thus giving
the oity connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacific railway oompany has large interests in the city,
having selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway oentre.
The climate, taken all the year
around,'is the best in Canadn—part of
the summer is rather hot and dry, but
the rost of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley
there is an extent of fertile agricultural land, part of whioh is now being cultivated.) „.
Apples, plums, pears, .prunes, cherries and .all the small, fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Co'luntbia, divided into small frnitand
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.    ''
Building material'is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prioes,aud tiriok lime and stone
of good, quality can always be obtained when required. !
The mining interests are of the first
importance td this' country," and will
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
throngh the mountains adjacent to
ithe city, and what were mere prospects a short time sinoe are nbw largo
paying mines. .    ,•.'
Water is supplied the city by pump-
. ing from a beautiful spring of excep
tioual purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfect plaut
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 prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be an educational oentre, a city of
homes, as well as a wholesale distributing point; and when Anally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest oity in the interior.

The Canadian Rifles Add
New Laurels to Their
Record.
London, April 5,—There was severe
fighting all day long on March 31st in
the neighborhood of Hart's river in the
northwestern extremity of the Transvaal, between a part oi Gen. Kitchener's force and the forces of Generals
Deiarey and Kemp, resulting in the
repulse of the Boers after heavy loses
on both sides.
Lo.d Kitchener's official report,
dated from Pretoria yesterday evening, pays the following high compliment to the Canadians:
"The Canadian Rifles especially distinguished themselves, one party commanded by Lieut. Bruce Carruthers
holding its post until every man was
killed or wounded. The forces showed
great steadiness, allowing the Boers
to advance within 200 yards of them
and then repelling them with steady
rifle fire."
