NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY, MAY 6, 19C5'.  NUMBER  INCUMBENT ON LAURIER GOVERNMENT  It is a distinct breach.of faith for tbe  Grand Trunk Pacific Railway  Company, to  demand from the Province of  British' Columbia-, large   subsidies   in  land or cash in  consideration of the  -work of construction being carried on  .from the Western end easterly.     Mr.  ���: Morse spent five "weeks in  tlie Province trying to negotiate a subvention  of   some   kind   with   the   Provincial  Government.   The Premie:- resolutely  refused to grant any concessions.   He  was perfectly justified in  that course  by the-promises made on behalf of tlie  " Government, and of tlie company, durging the election campaign,     After his  failure  Mr.  Morse gave interviews to  the Victojcia and Vancouver papers, in  which he let it be undcr-stuol that the  '-disappointment of the company at the  '��� obstinacy ofthe Provincial Govermeut  would probably cause the Province to  lose the incidental   advantages .that  would flow from the work beginning  at tbe coast and extending easterly.  Veiled threats have boen made to"force  the Province to grant the desired sub-  - sidi-'s.  This*course is absolutely indefensible,  "even if no promises had been  made.  The terms of the contract are admittedly liberal.     Only a moiety of tlie  total liability for the work is 'to be  borne by the company.     The Eastern  8ection--wili be built entirely by  the  country, aud.three-quarters of the cont  of the Western  section is  guaranteed  by the Government.     If il had been  thought.that, iu. addition -to the generous aid given by the Federal Government, demands would be made upon  the provinces, the  opposition  to the  terms would- have "been* much  more  ���vigorous" than it was.  ~~jWfis very point was raised in British  : Columbia.       The   Victoria   Colonist  Warned the people of the Province that  demands would be made upon  them  "for additional assistance.     In reply to  '.that Senator Templeman, at a public  -meeting in Victoria on November 2,  1904,   said:   "The   Conservatives   en-  ' deavor to make an issue of better terms.  I think that this great transcontinental  railway, to be built without cost to tbe  Province of one dollar or acre of land,  is something practical in the way of  better terras.". This was practically^  pledge from the Federal Government  to'the people of British Columbia. It  was accepted as such, and had its effect upon the election.  They were equally' explicit assurances as to the work being commenced  atthe Western end of the line. Mr.  Prefontaine, while" on an official visit  to the Province, announced publicly  that tiie railway would be begun at  tlie Piroilic Coast end, and constructed  to and through the liocky Mountains  eastward. Mr. .McPherson made a  similar announcement, which was repeated in Victoria and elsewhere iu  tlie Province. When Mr. C. M. Hays  was interviewed on this point shortly  afterwards, lie absolutely refused to af-  lirru. or deny what had ' beeii announced as the'in ten tion'of the.company. The "Colonist then.-challenged  the supporters Jof the Government to  produce wiitten authority from Mr  Hays that the work would begiii at  the Western end. Reply was made  by Senator Templeman, -who produced a letter from Mr. Hays, which  he read at a public meeting in Victoria, stating positively that as soon as  the surveys were completed, construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific would  be commenced at the Pacific Cbastend  withogj delay.  In Tiew of "these promises by the  supporters of the Government aud by  Mr. Hays, it is an outrage for the  company, to send Mr. Morse to.the  coast to try to hold "up the* Province  for further subsidies. Moreover, there  is a responsibility resting upon the  Government iu. this regard that cannot be-evaded. Mr. Prefontaine isa  member of the cabinet, and ,he gave  his word that the work would begin at  the coast. It is within tbe power of  the administration to compel the company to observe this condition, agreed  to by Mr. Hays and promised by a responsible minister. . It is a measure of  protection that^ the people have a perfect right to expect from the federal  power. Such disregard for obligations  assumed publicly is a serious reflection  upon the men who are at the head of  the new transcontinental railway company.���Toronto News.

V  "The Great Northern  is going from  the boundary line right into Prince-"  .. ton,"  continued Mr.   Armstrong,  '.'a  a trial line along the route has already  been  run, and the locations have been  completed.

From every point iu tho interior  comes reports of the remarkable development of the fruit industry. At  Grand Fork.,.where.there was scarcely  a fruit tree a few years ago, there is  now developing what will in time become a profitable fruit-industry. The  ���Slocan Drill states that a great change  is taking place in the Slocan valley,  almost all the available land having  been taken tip by ranchers, who are  going in mainly for fruit raising. Much  clearing is being done and a general  improvement is talcing place, the result being that in a few years all holdings will be valuable. One has only to  look around to become convinced that  great development along the same lines  is taking place in and around Nel.-on.  Every man, woman and child is taking  a deep interest in horticulture, and it  will be only a short time until the  Kootenay metropolis will become as  great afruit growing centre as it is now  an important mining and commercial  centre.  back. In this connection it might not  be out of place to say that there is no  likelihood of a good  team being got  together  in   Nelson   this   year,   and  more's thc pity.  The Victoria lacrosse club has begun  the Importation of players to till up its  team for 1905. The is a general belief  .amongst lovers of the national game  that the Victorians are making a grave  error in this regard. In the first place,  experience has demonstrated that imported players as a usual thing are not  as good as the home men. In the past  the coast teams have been experimenting with players from the outside with  the result that the imported men have  scarcely ever come up to expectations.  It is a well known fact that outside of  Ottawa lacrosse players do not average  up anything like as well as they do on  the coast, and as, far as the men who  have been brought.in from Winnipeg  are concerned, they have been always  found inferior to the home players.  And strange to say, Victoria is importing from Winnipeg. It is this wholesale importation that destroys all local  interest in the national game; and the  Victorians are to be severely condemned ifV indulging in a practice that  is certain to give the game a great set-  Dr. Osier's famous speech with regard to the best method of ridding'the  world of old men has been made the  subject of many humorous paragraphs  and poems. A recent issue of the New  York Life has the following from the  pen of one of its humorous contributors.

Wherever it has been tried the pamphlet has been discovered to be barren  of  satisfactory  results,  while  on   the  other hand, newspaper advertising bas  accomplished all that was desired. The  public take vcy little interest in a  pamphlet, but will read well written  ���J articles iu a newspaper. The proposal  of the B Jard of Trade is to circulate a  number of letters by means of the Associated Press, and to supply the samo  kind of matter to a number of the  eastern papers. This should result in  great benefits to the city, and also save  money in the way of advertising tho  resources of this locality. A greater  portion of. the money spent by the  tourist associations in advertising has  been wasted.'  CRAZE  FOR LIVING   OUT OF  DOORS.  There will be no.wigs worn, at the  assize court which opens here on May  9. What will become of all the discorded wigs ? ia a question often'asked."  Tn. a speech before, the Bench and Bar  of England, a few weeks ago, Joseph  Choate, the retiring American Ambassador, humorously referred to the fact  that Lord Erskino's full-bottmed wig,  when he ceased to be Lord Chancellor,  was exported to the coasts of Guinea,  that it might make an African warrior  more formidable on the field of battle.  The "Rosemaideu" cantata, under  the auspices of the Nelson Choral Society, will he. given next Wednesday  evening. The good \\:ork done at the  rehearsals inspire the ho e that it will  be a credit not only to the society, but.  to the city. There is little to be added  to what has already been said in these"  colums with regard to tlie production.  That it will be a success no one doubts  for a' moment.  There was a good attendance at .the  May Day concert last Monday evening, given under the auspices of the  auspices of the Success Club, and much  ofthe success was due to the ladies  who made the arrangements. The  different numbers were generously ap;  plauded, and tbe May pole dance  greatly admired.  M'GEE MURDER RECALLED BY DEATH OF PAT BUCKLEY.  Last year's craze for living out of  doors threatens this spring and summer to get a great many thousands  from under roofs.  Those who would tent in can not do  better than to take a lesson from the  camps. Any man or boy can with a  few days'labor, and at small expense  for lumber make a suitable platform  for a nine by twelve tent.  This should be raised about a fo��t or  eighteen inches above the ground, and  it is better for being double floored. The  platform should be-from four to six  feet Hngdr than the tent, and should  carry a frame of exactly the same form  as the tent over which the canvas will  snugly fit  When the tent Is ordered the contract should call fur eyelets around the  bottom, SO' that the canvass may be  buttoned down all round the lower  edge of the frame. A board about four  inches wide should run routed the  frame inside the canvas.  The part of the platform which extends beyond (he* tent is to form the  veranda. This may be enclosed with  a suitable fence, rustic or,otherwise,  and approached by a step or two.  Over the tent and beyond it, so as to  form the'roof of the veranda/extends  the fly; which is best secured by means  of ropes. Tbeso may" be'tied to racks  erected on each side of-the tent at  about the height of the eaves. ��� ,  If a tent is to be occupied, by more  than one persoii as a sleeping apartment, it should have about three feet  at tbe rear'cut off with light curtains  or matting' nailed on frames ^so as to  form two little dressing' rooms with a  passage between. Ifc is a simple matter  to cut.the remaining nine feet of the  tent .in two at night by means of a  light curtain running on a wire. There  is room for a comfortable narrow bed  on either-side of the curtain, aud the  sleepers have entire privacy.  The coolest part of sucn a tent by  day is the veranda, and ou all but the  hottest days of summer itis likely to  be a delightful place to work or read.  The tent itself, even with the fly over  it, is likely to be uncomfortably hot  from 10 to 5 o'clock on mauy summer  days, and it is absolutely necessary for  A di��patch from Ottawa announces  thedeath_of "Patrick" Buckleyrthe~vet-_  eran cab driver. Deceased drove every  Governor-General from Sir Francis  Head an. Lord Elgin down to Lord  Lansdowne.  Buckley was one of the Ottawa men  arrested on suspicion" of being connected with the murder of Thomas  D'Arcy McGee. He was in the House  of Commons oifthe night of the murder, and while McGee was ma king his  last speech, Whe'lan, who was afterwards'banged for the murder, was in  the gallery, and was several times seen  shaking his fist at McGee and afterwards speaking to Buckley. Indeed it  was a|Ieged that it was from Buckley's  vehicle the assassin alighted who killed  McGee.  Buckley was an intense admirer of  Sir John Macdonald, who put him on  the road to prosperity when he was  down at the heels. After the McGee  murder trial Buckley lost his mental  balance and was for a couple of years  confined in a lunatic asylum. When  he came out he returned to Ottawa  and established a public cab, driving It  himself, but all Ottawa seemed to  avoid him. Nobody wanted to patronize a man mixed up closely in a sensational murder. When almost in despair, Sir John coming out of Parliament square bailed Buckley's cab,  shook hands with the proprietor,  jumped in and-;gave the order to be  driveu^home.   Buckley with a keen  ,���.     ������-'������'������.  eye   to   business,    turned    his: horse  through the principal streets so that  people could see his distinguished patron- -That-turned thetide-and" the  genial Irishman had never afterwards  to seek fares. Business boomed and  he prospered as the swell liveryman of  Ottawa.  When Sir John was defeated and resumed his old profession at Toronto,  Buckley wwit there too. When Sir  John saw him driving along one day lie  hailed him, and went over to his cab  to shake hands. During all tho time  Sir John was out of power this faithful  old man insisted on driving him about,  and refused to accept a cent for the  service���a circumstance .which could  not be attributed to mere policy, as  there seemed little likelihood that Sir  John would ever be Premier again.  It could not have been Buckley's  good looks nor the pompous appear-  ance of his vehicle that had won the  favor of Sir John, for/ in former diiys  his old sorrel horse and lumbering,  faded, saggy-doored cab were the reverse of attractive, while the wizened,  wrinkled face���over which a short  sandy grizzled beard bristled out in all  directions, aud matched well with a  pair of shaggy eyebrows, from beneath  which a funny pair of eyes twinkled���  was more curious than handsome. A  curious little cap he used to wear made  his head look smaller than "it really  was. But Sir John in this odd figure  read tho one trait he required in a man  for this service, and that was faithfulness.  Buckley believed that no living  man dressed with the same taste as  Sir John, and tfbat increased his affection for his chieftain was that the  comfort and cleanliness that there be  an opening both front aud back.  The fly need not extend more than  eighteen inches beyond the tent at the  rear, though an ample fly is a gre it  comfort. If the (ent faces the bouth-  west the deeper the veranda the better.  A tent facing northwest is likely to be  cooler by day than one facing southwest, but the latter catches the prevailing cool night wind in this region.  A platform tent such as here -de- -  scribed is a good place to "sleep from  May to October. With a stove that  coststs $8 and burns- very litle wood  such a tent can be heated in a.very few  minutes for dressing and undressing.  It is amazing to see how long .after  the fire lias been started and tbe.draft-  have^li been shut off* such'a tent U  comfortable as a working place in cool  autumn weather. In this climate half  a cord of hard wood ought to make  such a,tent habitable all day long up to  the end of November,  The life of a tent, however, is much  shortened if itis used beyond the end  of September, and ' the storms' of a  single winter will do the canvas nioro  harm than ��� the wear of four or five  summers.  It is an easy and simple matter to  make a platform-tent practically iusect  proof. A few yards of mosquito netting at the entrances' from the front  and back will do this. The netting "  can be arranged with a long light stick  of wood at the bottom to keep itdown.  It is not so easy to keep mosquitoes  but of a tent pitched directly upon the  ground, but a mosquito canopy caii be "  made to protect the bed.  Nothing is more delightful than aa.  airy platform tent pitched in a shady  spot and properly furnisheu for comfort, aud even in this region, there is  probably no more wholesome sleeping  place.      The frame of the tent affords *  room for hooks upon which needed articles of one kind or  another'can^be  hung, and in the corners dry and convenient little shelves can be put up.  Just as a means of extending the  small suburBtm house the tent ls an  economy, for no other summer room  could   be   built for  three   times   the  i  money.  A.

Buckley would often contrast  this with the autocratic way with  which some of the junior depart mental  clerks would order him to carry a parcel up to the office, while tripping up  empty-handed themselves ; and then  carrying the contrast on to every other  member of Parliament, would slim up  with, "He's the most whundherful  man iu the worruld !"  When Sir John was in the throes of  his last illness, Buckley was on baud  to render his humble service day and  night, and as the tears rolled down his  cheeks, he said to a newspaper representative : "I have driven Sir John  thirty-eight years winter and summer,  and now they tell me he must die. I  have never known him to be but of  temper, never known him to say a  cross word, no matter how rough the  road might be or how careless I might  drive. Do you remember his gray suit  of clothes? One time I called for him  ancl he had on another suit. As he  was going to meet some important people I said to him (for I knew him so  well I could take liberties with him), I  said, 'Sir John, why didn't you put ou  your gray suit? You look so much  better in  it.'   'Is that so,  Buckley'?'  THE  PREVENTION   OF  APPENDICITIS.  Appendicitis is perhaps the-most  prevabnt disease of the present time.  Tiiere is said to be only one cure for it,  and that is by an operation, but it can  be prevented, and this is the way to do  it : "       "        '    A     '  1. Do not neglect chills when healed  by exercise, especially after games on  grass, or when much fatigued in mind  or body. The actual exciting cause in  most cases is chill, says Dr. Joseph  Kidd in the nineteenth Century. The  bacterial forces'are very quiescent till  the colon is blocked by undigested  food; then a chill develops thepcii-  tonitis, to which the inflamed appendix  adds greater intensity and danger to  life.  2. Masticate well, eat slowly, do not  swallow any food that is not perfectly  softened by the teeth. Even salads,  fruit, nuts, almonds, ond raisins may  be taken freely if really well masticated.  In the haste and bustle of city life, it is  better to take half a meal well masticated, than to bolt the whole in" a  hurry.  3. Avoid aperient salts, waters, or  pills. It is a far better to let nature do  her own work, undisturbed by purgatives of any sort. The doctor may  find It necessary to order an aperient  for a sick person, but the use of the  aperient ought gradually to cease and  uot become a habit. With patience  and diet management, nature may be  allowed, unhindered, to resume her ordinary habit of health, a slow, gradual  process. Patience is the opposite of  impatience which cannot wait. Alas!  it is the rarest thing in the present day  to find anyone waiting for the healthy  working of nature; all are impatient  for quick results, in haste to disturb  the healthy process (slow and sure) of  normal digestion.  when the freight train of which Mr.  said he, and he went and changed his- McNab was engineer collided with the  passenger train.

The Clarion is  printed at Vancouver, and is  regarded the mouthpiece of a  large section of tbe labor element of  the west. Its editor is a student of  labor problems, and it will be interesting to compare his opinions  with the sentiments expressed by  the speakers at the,meeting last  week, not one of whom can be regarded in any light as a representa  tive labor man. It will also be no  ticed that there is some conflict of  opinion between tbe Cia--ion and  the Nelson Tribune. The latter paper, Wednesday eveuine, gave vent  to the following specious remarks :  "The Mongolians resident in  Kelson would do well in refraining  .from any public demonstration just  now calculated to draw attention in  their direction. No oue has any intention of interfering with them  in  . -thft laundry, gardening and domestic  occupations where they do not com:  pete with white labor. -Within  those limits they are safe. Once,  however, they step outside, they.  ���Will find that public opinion in Nei-  son is a unit in the direction which  spells 'quit.' "  . Tbe assurance of the editor of the  _Mbune newspaper and of the jaui.  tor of the Tribune building that the  Chinese engaged in "gardening and  domestic occupations" will not be  interfered with, should be encour  aging and gratifying to the Mongolians thus employed in Nelson. .  levers of  short stories   will be  pleased ta learn  that Hon. D. W.  Higgins basjust completed"another  volume of tales, which will shortly  be produced by the publishing  house of Briggs & Co., Toronto.  They deal with recent events in  British Columbia somewhat on the  lines of the "Mystic Spring" stories, the 3,000 edition of which has  already been entirely disposed of.  Within a few years nearly every  available acre of land in the Kootenays will be under cultivation.  Then the residents of British Columbia instead of importing everything they consume, will be supplying the Northwest Territories with  the best fruit growu ou the continent.  There will be only a few criminal  cases for the forthcoming -assizes,  which speaks well for the manner  in which order is maintained in the  Kootenays.  :!?.- r-c..-:.L incident al Salmo, 13.  C, of the >viiite employees of the  Kootenay Shingle Company being  ousted from their employment.in favor of Chinese and Japanese workmen, has brought forth a lot of  high-flown editorial bomb-tst about  the intelligence, magnamimity, fore-  bearance and law-abiding proclivities of the Canadian citizen.  Maudlin sympathy galore has been  poured out upon the ousted workmen aud their families. To make  this sympathy especially palatable  to the afflicted ones, it has been  well seasoned with a savory and  judicious application of phrases  candemnatory of tbe shingle company for making the change of employees.  But in spite of it all the cold fact  remains that the cheaper labor will  hold the fort, and the ousted workmen and tbeir dependents will be  forced to fare forth in search of employment elsewhere. " If this were  to be their last experience of this  nature, it would not be so bad, but  turn which way they may, they will  still be confronted by a labor market as wide as the earth, and continually glutted with workers forced  to dispose of their commodity, labor power, or perish. That employers of labor will take due advantage  of the conditions of this labor mar-  ket in order to secure the cheapest  and therefore the most profitable labor from it, goes without saying.  And why they should not do so has  never yet been satisfactorily explained. The right of men to own  shingle mills and other forms of  property, and to purchase such supplies as they may require wherever  they can buy most cheaply, has not  been denied by the workingmen. In  fact, the Salmo workingmen who  have met with tbis recent unpleasant experience; we believe to a man,  voted at the Dominion elections last  fall in support of that right. So  long as the workers give their support to a system of property which  can o'nly stand by virtue of that  right, they should logically accept  the consequences of its application.  ���The-Kootenay Shingle-Company-  in this instance, in so far as we  know, violated iio law of either the  Province or Dominion, nor did they  step outside their rights as established by law and sanctioned by the  aggrieved workingmen themselves.  Id tho Uhi-.iese and Japanese were  disposed to turnish the company  with labor power at a lower rate  than they, the company was  within its rights, already established  by the franchise of tbe workers  themselves, in taking advantage of  the opportunity offered. The only  legal right possessed by the workers was to meet the cut in the price  of labor power (wages), or "vamoose the ranch." And as this right  was also established by the woricers  support of the political parties of  capital, it is really surprising that  they should have so forgotten the  "dignity of labor" as to have made  an unseemly exhibition of themselves by hooting the Chinamen  and Japs, and making complaint  over the company's action in the  exercise of its rights.  Some of these men, perhaps all of  them, will harbor ill feeling towards the Orientals, under the impression that they have been ousted  by these workers of another race.  If they will but stop to reason a  little they will discover that the impression is a false one. The3' weie  ousted from their employment by  the owners of the shingle mills, men  of their own race, and presumably  as loyal Canadians as themselves.  In taking advantage of the condition of the labor market to  obtain the cheapest labor possible, they have acted .only  iu obedience to the demands  of their property interests. The  Oriental as well as the white  laborers arc merely pawns upon the  chessboard of capitalist exploitation,  to be moved to suit the needs of the  Kings, Queens, Bishops, Knights,  etc., of capitalist property.  Neither editorial bombast nor  maudlin sympathy will heal thc  wounded feelings of the victims of  capital in the Salmo case, nor prevent the repetition of such occurrences iu the future. Equally useless for the workers to cry over  spilt milk. Tbe lssson. must be  learned no matter how painful the  process, that so long as the system  of property stands, the owners have  the-right- to_use_ their, property_in  such way as to best conserve their  interests, and the only rignt the  workers have is to take the consequences, no matter how often they  may be called upon to hit the trail.  ���Western Clarion, Vancouver.
