dnced

Consumption
The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the city council was held in the council chambers Monday evening, all
tbe members being present, witn the
exception of Aid. Rutherford.
The eity solicitor reported on
various matters now pending before
the council. The rules of the railway commission, he stated, prohibited trains from running through
thickly populated centres ata higher
speed than ten miles an hour, and a
man must be stationed on the pilot
to warn people. Corporations, however, were granted the power to limit
the speed. Hallways had the right
to construct sidings on their own
property inside city limits, provided
they did not cross any streets or
highways. The solicitor also submitted a letter from David Whiteside, counsel for the Kettle Valley
line, asking for a postponement ol
the matters iu dispute between tbe
city and the company until new
plans could be drawn, as the old
ones had been defaced in the recent
Are in the Morrison block. The request was granted.
Mr. Sutton also asked for instructions in regard to the action of R.
Mcintosh against the city, which
was set for a hearing in tbe county
court on the 20th mst. lie wished
to known whether he should consent
to a postponement of the case if
asked foi, or press an early hearing.
On motion, the council instructed
the solicitor to proceed with the case
at once, and to object to an adjournment of the same. Aid. McCallum
offered an amendment to this resolution, by moving that Mr. Mcintosh's bill against the eity be paid,
but the motion failed to receive i
seconder.
The finance committee recommended the payment of ihe usual
number of monthly accounts, and
also ad viced the payment of all taxes
on tbe properly purchased by the
corporation a", last year's tux sale.
Approved. The various other committees iilsu reported on unimportant mutters,
Aid. Clark was granted leave to

The semi-annual meeting of the
Presbytery of Kootenay was held in
St. Paul's church, Nelson, last Tuesday, Rev. H. G. Grant, moderator,
presiding. There were present Rev.
A. T. McLeod, Grand Forks; S. Lun
die, Phoenix; M. D. McKee, Greenwood; J, Fernie, Cascade; T. J. Robinson, Rossland; J. T. Ferguson, Nelson; C. O, Main, Cranbrook; A. Keu-
inuir, Slocan; W. T. MeCrie, Moyie;
It. A. McConnell, Fort Steele; Messr*.
G. H. Findlay, Slocan; D. C. MeMor-
ris, Nelson.
Rov. J. T. Ferguson was elected
moderator for the present year. At
the afternoon session an acknowledgement was received from Rev. Dr.
Herdman, Calgary, of tho Presbyterian resolution of appreciation of his
work as home mission superintendent,
A letter wns read from J. J. Bell, Toronto, reporting Ins attendance as
representative elder at the last general
assembly. His report referred especially to the union negotiations, Mor-
inoiiism in the west, the Vancouver
college and the appointment of Rev.
Dr. Shearer us agent in temperance,
moral and social reform.
Rev. C. O. Main reported that all
the congregations but three, Rossland,
Grand Forks and Ymir, had contributed to the synod fund. The total receipts had been $!)0 and the expenditures $74, with accounts due amounting to $15. The hope was expressed
that all the congregations would honorably meet their obligations.
A letter was read from Aubrey Ful-
lertoii, editor of tho new weekly, The
W'estland, asking for the cooperation
ofthe Presbytery ill increasing its circulation, The meeting expressed its
interest iu this undertaking, and recommended that ministers should call
their people's attention to it.
Capt. D. 0. MoMorris submitted a
report regarding systematic beneli
eence, which showed that the tendency was progressive, but much remained to bo done iu the way of introducing good methods of giving to
religious objects. Some eli'ort,he said,
must be made to rise to a higher standards. Congregations, like individuals, would find that in giving to help
others they would be helping them
selves towards better things.
It was resolved to ask Capt. Mc-
Morris to put his recommendations
into the form of a leaflet for distribn- j
tion among the olliee bearors and to j
introduced to the people.
it was reported that all over the (
Presbytery there had been a response
to the appeal of the synod for a larger j
contribution   to   the   home   mission

FRIDAY, FEBRDAY21, 1908
The Conservatives in the Dominion parliament, led by George E.
Foster, tbe mythomanias are now
engaged in challenging the policy of
the Liberal government with respect
to the administration of timber lunds.
Among other things, itis suggested
(for the Conservatives never permit
their tactics to reach the dignity of
a direct charge) that limits were improperly granted to friends of the
government. Would the people of
Canada be surprised to learn that
George E. Foster, the advocate of
purity in politics (who was once unseated for corrupt practices), himself applied for lilty miles of a timber limit, but when he found there
were other competitors be calmly
withdrew his application. This considerate politician declined to enter
into competition for the limit; so
long as he could got it for nothing,
all was well, but when he found he
might have to pay something the
limit ceased to interest him. This
is the gentleman who says the government has acted improvidently in
giving away limits for less than they
were worth, lie applied to get one
free. The gravamen of Conservative
charges is tbat the limits of the West
have been disposed of in advance of
public requirements. How, then,
can they defend disposing of 29,322
square miles between 1878 ind 1S9G,
as was done by the Conservative
government? They don't pretend to.
How futile would it be for the Conservatives to attempt to justify the
giving of 10,326 square miles of timber in the year 1888. when there
was scarcely any settlement in the
West, antl this area given, not to
lumbermen, not to settlers, but io
speculators and politicians at a time
when there wns practically nn demand for lumber? How can the
Conservatives justly base a criticism
of the Liberal government for granting 8456 square miles of timber in
eleven years, nt a time when settlement in the West bus reached immense proportions, and there is a
steady demand for lumber? With
this additional fact in view, that
every acre wus put up fur public
competition and in every case went
to ihe highest bidder? The Liberal
administration of timber lands has
ceen honest, uml in uddititioil has
produced a large revenue fur the
people, nnd has reduced the necessity for taxation to lhal extent. Conservative administration of limber
lands was a public BCandul uud a national disgrace. Their policy added
to the wealth of the individual pur
ty worker; it increuseil the substance
of the party supporter, but it worked
a great injustice to the people nt
large. Conservative ministers ofthe
crown, senators, speculators and defeated Tory candidates made money,
but tbe people paid tbe price, bo-
cause the resources of the country
were impoverished that these men
should become rich. The next time
Conservatives challenge comparison
between their administration and
that of Sir Wilfrid Laurier's governmenl they should be careful to look
up tbe doings of the men who were
once in olliee and who suffered  de
feat at the hands of the people for
their misdeeds, and the unfortunate
but scandalous transactions of prominent men in the party would not
experience such disgraceful exposure as that to which they had to
submit during the discussion of this
subject in the house.

actually offered the nomination by
the Conservative organization,
through Mr. George W. Fowler, its
leader; that he accepted, committed
himself to the campaign, and threw
himself actively into the work, only
to be informed at the lust minute
that in order to retain the political
honor which nad been tendered him
he must fulfil conditions destructive
of bis personal honor, one of the
conditions demanded of him being a
contribution of #1000 to the Conservative campaign fund. That he
refused and surrendered the prize
rather than be party to questionable
political methods is greatly to his
credit and will increase his hold
upon public respect. That the organization which placed him in this
dilemma,which forced him to choose
between a position of personal embarrassment and open consent to
and camplicity with corrupt policiti-
cal methods, will forfeit more than
Dr. Pearson's personal support, goes
without saying. Not only his friends,
but all who favor fair play and clean
politics will strongly resent such
practices.

How to Prepare a   Simple
Mixture to Cure Rheumatism
ney or  urinary disorders  or rheumatism.
Cut this out antl preserve it. Good
rheumatism prescriptions which really
relieve are scarce indeed, and when
you need it, you want it badly. Our
druggists here say they will either
supply these ingredients or make the
mixture ready to take, if any of our
readers so prefer.
This Town Has Its Share of
Dread Disease—Yields to
Simple Recipe
CITY NEWS
To relieve tho worst forms, of rheumatism, take a teaspoonful of the following mixture after each meals ami
at bedtime:
Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half
ounce; Compound Kargou, one ounce;
Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla, three
ounces.
These harmless ingredients can be
obtained from our home druggists, and
are easily mixed by shaking them well
in a bottle. Relief is generally felt
from the first few doses.
This prescription, states a well-
known authority in a Cleveland morning paper, forces the clogged*up, inac-
tiva kidneys to filter and strain from
the blood the poisonous waste matter
and uric ucid, which causes rheumatism,
As rheumatism is not only the most
painful and torturous disease.but dangerous to life, this simple recipe will
no doubt he greatly valued by many
sufferers here at home, who should at
once prepare the mixture to get this
relief.
It is said thot a person who would
take this prescription regularly, a dose
or two daily, or even a few times a
week, would never have serious  kid-

The Circus Combine
Much has been said and printed
relative to tbe combine which was
made the past year, in which the big
circuses of this country were amalgamated. Before Norris and Rowe
entered into the arrangement, they
gave the Bubject great thought. It
has been their aim always to give
the public a clean, moral, refined
performance, and that the succeeded
in this is best illustrated by their
past success. Wishing to give the
public more for its money each year
has been a constant problem that
they have worked on incessantly.
When the powers that be of the big
combine approached Norris and
Rowe and invited them to participate in the benefits to be derived
from the union, they gave the matter further conBidaration. After so
doing they saw a way clear in the
saving of vast sums of money that
had been wasted in useless warfare
for territory, and in divers other
ways to increase in size, and in the
general excellence of their entartain-
ment. By the aereement entered
into the Barnum & Bailey circus will
make the New England states; the
Sells-Forepaugh circus has been retired from service entirely; the Ring
ling Bros, will take the middle West
and Southern states, and the Greater
Norris ife Rowe circus has been given
the territory west of the Rockies,
There will be but one of the big circuses in the trust to visit any section of the country any given year.
This applies only to the big circuses;
any of the little one-hir-e i ffairs
may go where they please. The
trust has a special representative in
each of the' big cities of Europe
booking the big sensational acts, securing the strangest freaks, and the
most expensive and rare animals.
These acts and novelties are equally
distributed among the three hig circuses to the agreement, an advantage that heretofore has not been
possible. The Greater Norris it Rowe
circus lias been enlarged to such an
extent this year that it is now on a
par with the other big shows in the
combine, and will hereafter be one
of the "big three." Their engagement in San Francisco this winter,
which extended over a month, was
the most successful ever played by
a tented exhibition in the history of
the west. Thc entire press of the
city were unanimous in proclaiming
it to be the best circus ever seen in
that city.
The surest way to evaporate busi
ncss troubles is to give your stationery
the nacessary talking qualities by
having it printed iu a modern oflice

B. C. Copper Company
A Greenwood dispatch states that
although General Manager McAllister, of the British Columbia Copper
company, is not expected to return
to Greenwood until the end o' this
week, the report of President Colgate
Hoyt, presented to the annual meeting held at Charlcstown, W. Va.,
has reached the shareholders and
contains an assertion that he confidently expects "an early resumption
of operations on a much larger scale
and a more satisfactory earning
br.sis." The report is being well re-
caived by the shareholders in the
Boundary, and the president's statement reflects very fairly the sentiment in this district.
In spite of the fact that the report
showB a net income for the year
ending November 30, 1907, of only
$88,1.55.42, this amount is arrived
at after charging up 8114,898.41 for
development, which has resulted in
the blocking out of much more ore
than has been taken from the mines.
To find the year's net profit on the
sale of copper, there must be added
also $75,000, the purchase of the
Lone Star and Washington, and
$201,200 paid in dividends in July
last, making the total earnings of the
year at least $479,253.83, or about
half a million dollars, Had the company been able to deliver its copper
on quotations at date of shipment,
the net profits would have been ap-
proximajely S'MiS,4Q0. As it is, a
large allowance of .$'106,244.21 has
been made for shipments in suspense at the close of the year. The
company's surplus after deducting
this allowance, first cost, devolop-
ment charges and dividends to date,
is $176,041.31.
Referring to the various difficulties of the past year and of the condition of affairs that led to the closing of the mines and reduction
works last November, President
Hoyt continues hopefully as follows:
"During the interim vigorous and
successful efforts have been made to
materially leduce the cost of production,   and   your   president   is

thut nearly all of the embarrassing
conditions which rendered our operations so difficulty to carry out during the past year, have been removed. We do not fear again any
embarrassment from the lack of railroad cars, and we have assurance of
ample fuel supply now, which will
permit of continuous operation at

This is particularly important,
for during the last year, in spite of
the splendid equipment ofthe smelter, with its three blast furnaces and
converting plant, capable of handling 2000 tons a day, they were able
only to operate the plant at half its
cipacity.
So far as can be learned from the
officers of the company now in
