T0VNS1TE  -    NOTE AND COMMENT.  The 111111111 in the C.P.R. shops and  yard here aro very indignant at the  notice given them on Monday that  the company still considered the question of payment by the day or month  as unsettled and iindorYonsideratioii.  A former kick on the part of the men  resulted in payment by the clay for  February. On this plan men, who  were*' formerly getting bay * $10.00  per month and no overtime, were be-  gitminsr to draw over $50.CD This  seems to have caused some uneasiness  in the official world of the company,  with the result that the* concession has  been, practically withdrawn. The  Herald tUies not wonder that the  men are worked up over tho prospect  or a, possible reversion to the former  state of affairs, and entirely sympathizes with them, as theie can be no  doubt that the system of cltvy payment,  where so much over time and night  work is demanded is the fair and just  one.  CORRESPONDENCE.  , Mr. Haggen on Himself.  Tei the Editor uf the Herald.-  . Sir,���������Is not your main objection to  incorporation the strongesfreason in  favor of it? ,.You urge that the first  thing to be done is to clear up lhe land  titles. 'Is not a corporate hotly, vitally  interested in,the question, the most  powerful lever for bringing this about?  In Ros-sland a similar difficulty., exists,  but'Kossland is being incorporated,  and'you will see that the city council"  will soon havo tho question of titles  settled. I agree with yoii that the  qualification clauses of the Bill are  wrong, but a resolution from the people ot Revelstoke would probably have  secured the desired amendment in the  event of ".incorporation having been  ndopted. ..The majority have decided  otherwise, atid-L tor one, believe* in"  the minority loyally submitting to the  decision to the decision of the -majority. . '  '  Now, about your report of-tlie meeting, I regret having had to over-rule  your roporti*r's attempt to dictate the  -order ol'.huHiiriess/'its_-this ...is * evidently  the*}" 'reason*'-'for ".h's'~f-"Mll-nature'd  .report.. - My ...position as., chairman  was ii difficult''task.*-'owing" to'  a Wiint of knowledge* of "the rules of  debate on tho part of certain speakers,  aud also to the feeling displayed.' '".On  my. putting the issue to'the meeting  no one voted for the ameiidmei.t,'biit  seven'for thu motion, so that the former \vas lost. In watching the interruptions I -'overlooked -calling  simultaneously for the negative vote,  hut on this being pointed out I put ib  as soon as circumstances would admit.  About 11 voted against, so the motion  was lost. Yet you go out of your way  to say: "After Lnme hesitation' he consented to aelopt this view of ihe case."  You Will soon find that I have very  little hesitation about adopting anything that is right and in the public  _iiitertLst;_amljit_the_i*ieeting in question iuy desire as ch,iirniair"was~to"  give all parties fairplay.

The'Coast Line Shelved.  ... t  To the Editor c>f The Herald :  Sir,���������The two marked copies of the  Victoria Colonist and'the'DailyNcws-  Advertiser will no doubt iilreaely have  come to your notice���������if not, 1 think  they should as your city is vitally interested in the construction oE a com  poling railway freim* the Crow's Nest  Pass to tho Coast, anel its " branches.  This shelving is one of the most impudent political jobs perpetrated with  British Columbia as tlie victim of the  eastern wire-pullers; and this with a  Liberal government.  The writer trusts lhat you will take  the cpiestion up iu the same zealous  way as-tlie Colonist, so as to make the  Dominion Government realize* that  British Columbia first of all belongs  to the British Columbians, and that  while the latter are willing to let the  ea������t participate fullv of- its feast of  wealth and plenty, they yet insist on  having a prior claim.'  j Britibii Columbia.  Victoria, March 1st, 1807.  THE'GREAT HORN   GROUP.  A Wonderful Ledge Believed to be   the  Mother Lode of Lardeau River.  This important group of claims is  situated cm the North Fork of the  Lardeau River. It has been stilted by  experts that, tbev believe this������ledge  to bo the mother lode of the-Lardeau  River country. The ledge is from 20 to  40 feet wide, being contact of slate and  lime and is traceable on the surface  for seven o'r eight miles, having been  located at one end on the Fish Creek,  and.at the other on tho Duncan slope.  There are in the neighborhood of 25  claims located on the ledge, all of  which have good surface shewings.  The , lead is a ,galena proposition,  carrying silver, lead nnd copper and a  small percentage of gold. : A - number  of the claims have been bonded to a  syndicate, whb intend to do considerable development work in tho spring,  which will no doubt prove beyond per-  adventure tho value of the property'.

From Our Own Correspondent.  The'Donald Amater 'Dramatic Club  have decided to put on   "Not  such   a  fool as he'looks," an eccentric comedy,  in three acts, by Henry J.

Hewitt, Bostock, M. ,P., passed  through here last Wednesday en route  for Ottawa, .but owing tn boing pressed for time he was unable to stop off.  Some of the ladies are' trying to organize a Concert and Glee Club and  give a* series of entertainments  through the summer months, charging a small admission fee and giving  the surplus to a charity fund. We  hope lhat they may be successful a������  we have a lot ot good talent, in our  small_to_wn. and an undertaking of this  kind would be thoroughly ii'ppreciaTecV  by the music loving public. ' This  Glee Club together with tho Diamntic  Club's entertainments would make  our long summer evenings far moro  pleasant.  Thos. Needham. who had the misfortune to loose a part of his thumb  in ������ crane at Revelstoke the other day,  is progressing favorably.  Con. Barney Naso'n says "it is'a boy  this time."  _ Bob Barker has joined the henedicts,'  and Mr. 'Wlniley of Alton's bridge  gang follows suit next week.  A musical and magic lantern entertainment, was held at tho Oddfellow's  hull on Thursday evening tu a ".full  house, in aid of tho private school  here, in which the pupils look part  very creditably to their teacher Miss  Pitts. The'drill, marching and countermarching, was iiuile picturesque  and shewed the pains taken with  these small children. Mr. L. It. Johnson, locomotive foreman, took charge  of the lanterns and displayed a scries  of nearly (50 views, depicting a. trip  through" greater London, and winding  up with a few views of Canada. Most  of the views were explained to the  audience, and an enjoyable and profitable evening was spent by all.  MINING SENSATION.  Secretary of "Orphan Boy" Arrested For  Forgery of Stock, Which he -Sold  Below Ruling Prices.  Considerable excitement was manifest in mining circles, this morning,  over the arrest in this city l.isl. night,  of F. C. Whitney eif Revelstoke, secretary of the; Orphan Bey Mining Co.  The wairanlwiis issued on information  sworn out by J. *W. Haskins, president  of the company, lho charge boing lhe  serious one of forgery. ' II appeal's  that Mr. Haskins had gone lo S.in  Francisco to purchase* ������i ne*w stamp  mill for tho company, and, about the  same time, Whitne*y was married, and  went on his honeymoon trip. Subse-  sequently, he went to Spokane, arid  hud a large number of stock certificates printed, representing nearly  35.000 shares in the "Orphan Be'iy," to  which, it is alleged, he appended the  president's name, as well as his own  as seci otary. These ho sold, thiongh  brokers and others, at about -1 cents  per share.' This, alone, as then price  of "Orphan Buy" stock was 15 cents,  was enough to excite'siispicion.'as it  caused the price of lho genuine stock  to'drop fifty per cent.  On his return from the south, Mr.  Kaskins happened to see'some'of these  spurious share certificates in Vancouver,' and. at *ouco, pronounced them  forgeries, and clumsy ones-tit that.  He then ascertained that Whitney  was in this vicinity, and. tracing him'  up, he arrived in tlie - city,. yesterday  evening, aud located- him here.; 'He  then swore,out a warrant, for Whitney's arrest, and Sergeant Dillaliough  executed the same, and took his prisoner Jto Vanco'uver on the nine p. m.  tram.  Innocent -purchasers of the forged  stock will watch .with' .inteiest the  future proceedings.���������Columbian.   ���������      .,  THE CORLiSS ACT VETOED..  i  INSURRECTION OF GENDARMES  IN *"CRETE.

MARCH  1S'.)7.  WAR SCARE  BILL   INTRODUCED   INTO  AMERICAN SENATE  THE  THE    KINGDOM    OF   SPAIN  WILL IT   WORK  The proposal of Lady Aberdeen  to    celebrate     Hor       Majesty's  diamond jubilee by the collection  ot one million dollars for the formation of the "Victorian Order of  Home Helpers, has not   been  received with enthusiasm by a large  ���������section of the Eastern press.    One  )iaper doubts the wisdom oi' spending a million dollars  to  increase  the  supply  of  Canadian' nuises,  ���������who are now so plentiful that they  must    emigrate   to  the    United  States and be sent back C. O. D. in  due course by Mr. De Barry and  other    immigration      alienators.  Another  paper claims that what  we really want i.s a society for tbe  purpose of amalgamating men and  women into  one     human    race,  leaving the "higher ideal" to look  but for itself.    A facetious writer  in,another journal   suggests   the  formation of a Victorian Order of  Henpecked Husbands as a sort of  sister or brother  society to  the  Home  Helpers,   with His   Excellency  the Governor   General    as  President.     Even    the   National  Council of Women has not been  free'from criticism, and tho statement has  been made that its usefulness will depart with the present Governor  General  and    his  family. . The  Toronto  Telegram  lias the following candid opinion,  which will doubtless  draw down  ��������� on its devoted head the wrath of  many devoted adherents   of  the  Aberdeen movements:  ���������'There ��������� are t great many  Canadians who believe that this  National Council" of Women is  elevoid of usefulness, unless n  caoacity for supplying ladies with  official titles and excuses for  attending conventions is proof of  usefulness. Canadians, or at least  many Canadians, are just a little  wearied at this half concealed  assumption that they are an  honest peasantry to be urged to a  higher field of thought and action  by the kindly .stimulus of aristocratic patronage. The sixtieth  anniversary of Queen Victoria's  coronation is in danger of being  turned into a burlesque by the  formation of the Royal Order of  ~Victoria~H6me~Hel_5ers1 The idea  may become a fad, but its promoters are inspired mainly by the  approval of a distinguished  persouage, who must shortly  leave the country, and whendier  active interest is withdrawn, the  foundations of the royal order will  elisappear."  One thing at all events is  certain. Lady Aberdeen means  well, and deserves credit for her  efforts to improve the condition of  tbe -people of Canada. But  whether she will succeed in  ncbieviug that desirable object by  the present means is altogether  another question.  Is the Country With Which the Declaration Deals ��������� Senator Sulzor, of  New York, Behind the Movement���������  A  Memorable  Day for  Yankeeism  Washington, February 26. ��������� The  Senate was storm swept today by such  a passionate debate, such extraordinary demonstrations in the crowded  galleries, anil such dramatic personal  exchanges between conspicuous figures  of the Senate as to make the day one  of lhe most memorable in the annals  of the upper branch of Congress.  Cuba was the theme of discussion.  Representative Sulzor, of New York,  introduced in the House a bill declaring war between the .Kingdom of  Spain and her colonics and the United  Slates of America and their Territories, and that the President is authorized to use the whole of the land aud  water forces of the United States to  carry the same into effect, and to issue  to till private armed vessels for the  United States commissions or letters  of marc.uo and pcneral reprisal in such  form as he shall think proper, and  tmiler seal of the United States,  against all vessels, goods and effects of  the. Government of the said Kingdom  of Spam aud subjects thereof.  THE POWERS  CAME TO DECISION ON CRETAN  QUESTION  BUYING RAILS  AN AGREEMENT ANNOUNCED  NOT READY  FOR     PROVINCIAL    AUTONOMY  SAYS PREMIER HAULTAIN  Mr. T. 0. Davis, M. P. protein  for Saskatchewan, has allowed his  e-liarges against the Prince Albert  Electric Light Company for  failing to hang out the necessary  Mangle to drop. Mr. Davis has so  little faith in the great unpaid  and as a rule unqualified magistracy that he has remedied the  evil to the best of his ability by  having himself appointed as  Justice of the Peace. His antag-  niiist'* may seek to deprive him of  ihe- Justice, but they should  certainly make him keep the  Peace.'  A certain personator at South  Brant on polling day, was caught  in the act and chased into the  Liberal committee room by a constable who found on the person of  his prisoner a bottle of liquor  which was pronounced by a fairly  ������ood expert to be whiskey. For  the defence it is suggested with a  flavour of North Western innocence that the contents of the  bottle were methylated spirits and  peppermint for the purpose of  Thawing out gas pipes. This is  rather rough on the vocal organs  of the prohibitive orators who  frequented the committee rooms.  RECOGNIZES    CONCESSIONS  Made to the North West Territories in  Years Past���������He is Against Adhering Eastern Assiniboia to Manitoba  ���������Will Ask for an Executive Council  Ottawa, February 20. ��������� Premier  Hauitain is in tho city on business  with the Government in connection  with Territorial alfairs. He recognizes the concessfons- made to the  Territories in lato years from the constitutional standpoint, but being asked  what his view was with regard to  complete provincial autonomy he replied that the Territories were not  ready for it. Neither i.s he in favour  of any portion of the Territories being  added to Manitoba. He points out  that all the machinery of government  in the North West now applies to the  Territories as a whole, and that if a  portion of Eastern Assiniboia were to  be transferred to Manitoba it would  destroy the system of government as  it now exists. Premier Hauitain will  ask for a change in the Notth West  Territories Act to permit of the appointment of an Executive Council for  tho Territories in place of the Executive Committee, such Executive Council to be chosen by any member ol the  Legislature who may be entrusted by  the Lieutenant Governor with this  duty.  Salisbury and Balfour Give the Terms  to Parliament Today���������The London  Chronicle Excited���������Greeks can do  Their Own Fighting, George Says  London, February 25.���������In the House  of Lords today Lord Salisbury renly-  ing to Lord Duiiraven on the Cretan  question stated that the following declaration of policy had been forwarded  to the courts of the great powers by  England:  1. The establishment of an administrative autonomy in thc_ Island of  Crete as a necessary condition.  2. Subject to the above condition  Crete ought in their judgment to  remain a part of the Turkish empire.  3. Turks and Greeks shall be informed by the powers of this resolution.  ���������1. If Turkey or Greece should, when  recjuircd, persistently refuse to withdraw their military and naval forces  from the Island, then the powers  should impose their decision by force  upon the State so refusing.  London, February 21.���������A despatch  to the Daily Mail from Athens says:  "Tho Greek army is leaving Platania,  fearing the capture of their guns by  the foreign marines.

The King of Greece has published a  message enjoining the people of his  country to remain calm and dignified  and to repose confidence in the government. This message becomes  necessary on account eif the growing  excitement since the bombardment.  Today's special despatches indicate  little change 111 the Cretan situation.

ShakiDg  palsy, a jerking of the eyes or head  as seen in the aged, St. Vitus  dance, locomotor ataxia and many  cases of rheumatism are caused by  a tension of the nerves caused in  the beginning by the kidneys.  Bright's disease and diabetes,  opposite conditions, have 0 their  cause in the kidneys.  Catarrh and other diseases of the  bladder are caused by" the kidneys  doing defectivo work, leaving the  urine in an inflammatory state.  Gravel, weak ankles, hands and  feet always wet with perspiration,  and many cases where there is a  lack of perspiration, are abnormal  conditions - caused by " abnormal  kidneys.  Varicocele, varicose veins and  milk leg originate in defective  kidneys.  Curvature of the spine, in. old or  young, and gout, are caused by  deposits from the fluids of the body,  which .should be carried away, by  the kidneys.  , A cough or a fever may come  from; congested kidneys. Constipation and female troubles may  arise from the same source..  Paraplegia i3 often the result .of  weak kidneys. Paralysis of half or  the wholo body may have its first  cause in the kidneys.

FOSTER'S VIEWS ON  PUBLIC QUESTIONS  He  Deplores the Present Attitude of  the United States and Thinks it  Will Lead to Retaliatory Legislation���������Canadian Smelters  Rossland Miner: Hon. George* li,  Foster, ex-Minister of Finance, paid n  visit to the Centre Star nuue Tuesday,  having gone through the Le_ Roi anil  "War Eagle works the day previous.  When he returned Tuesday afternoon Cnniidii must, elo  from his trip he was asked to give his  opinion of those great properties. "I  cannot say any tiling at tlie present  time,'' was his reply. "1 am milking  a trip through the Boimclay country  and the Rnsslnud, Slocan and Nelson  districts, gaining nil the knowledge 1  can of mines aud mining from conversations and personal observations-, and  cannot express any decided opinions  ^ with reference to my impressions ol  the country until I have finished my  tour. Then I shall be prepared to give  my views, and from what I iTave  gleaned up to the present I do not  think they will be unfavourable to the  country."  "Then for the fntin being you have  given up politics for mining?"  "Well, one is bound to have one's  interest captivated by the chief interest of the locality, and here that undoubtedly is mining. Of course 1 retain my interest in politics, and I have  soon to return to Ottawa to take up  the business ot the session."  "What do you expect will be the  leading question of the coming Parliamentary session:-'"  "As to what course legislation will  take do you mean? That is ns unde-  eiiled in liiy mind,us I think it is in the  mind of the Government itself,*' he  said with a smile.  A RETALIATORY TARIFF.  "Is it-likely that attempts will be  made to retaliate on the United States  in tariff matters?"  "I think it is. We may have the  recommendations of the "United States  ways and means committee to Congress to guide us in that respect, but I  do not look for a completed tariff to  be passed by Congress during our session. The probabilities are that there  will be a long discy-ission, if nob in the  lower House in the Senate. The last  tariff revision took nearly two years.  Of course this will take a much shorter  period.  '.'But I think enough is known of the  temper of the dominant party in the  states to conclude that the tariff passed will be verv closely on the lines of  the old McKinley tariff."' The protection which was somewhat scaled down  in the Wilson bill on lumber and agricultural products, and on metals, will,'  without doubt, bs very considerably  raised, It goes without saying Unit  wool will uo longer be on the free list,  and a corresponding addition will I e  made in the rates' on manufactured  articles.''  DISGRACEFUL LEGISLATION.  -' "And wliat about tho alien clauses  of the immigration bill, Mr. Foster?"  "The alien clause is simply a disgraceful piece of legislation for any  country. The thing that 'I most regret is" that the   self  respect  of the  Canadian people will very likely drive  them to legislation in kind, which I  would deplore, nnd yet hope will not  become neeessniy. But there conies  a time when this'se>lf respect of a people can no long.-r permit it to be legis-  lateel against, when it must stand* up  tor its own people and give as good or  as bad as it receives.

Some Features of the New Companies  Act in British Columbia-- Registration Charges  The British Columbia Legislature  is engaged in an elfort. to improve the  law regulating mining and other companies. The Attorney General has  introduced nn act. containing among  other radical features, a clause reejuir-  irig ten per cent ot the capital ot a  company to be paid up before a charter  is granted.  There is very general opposition  tlirouglio.it the province to the 10 per  cent cl.-iu.ic. When spoken to about  the matter the Attorney General in-  dioiUed this provision "would not bo  adhered to as there was a general expression against it.  Another provision is that every foreign company shall have a registered  office in British Columbia and shall  tegister the name of its agent or manger. All companies will be compelled  to prepare a balance sheet once a year  showing receipts and expenditures for  the year previous airl this balance  sheet" shall bo printed. These balance sheets are to be verv complete in  detail.  The new rate of charges for registering companies will bo one-tenth of one  per cent on capitalization. Prospectuses are to lie prepared with much  greater care and detail than heretofore and there is a severe penalty for  any false representation or deception.  CROW'S NEST  PROPOSITION     FROM    THE  CANADIAN   PACIFIC  CONTROL IS YET DOUBTFUL  Lieut. Governor Mackintosh in declining the.itivitation of Rossland citizens to run for the mayoraltv says*.  "I am reluctantly obliged to decline;  first, the"' measure ot incorporation  contains a proviso as to residence, rendering me ineligible. Without attempting to intrude my opinions, 1  woulil urge as an issue of paramount  importance the policy of drainage and  sanitary measures practically and  scientifically applied; I would advise a  system - of rigid civic economy; ,the  selection of faithful representatives;  the exclusion of sectional aud personal  prejudices, and the adoption of stringent rules for the guidance and regulation of the .city council.

The Canadian Pacific Railway's offer  gives shippers into Rossland a concession, but this offer does not apply between Eastern Canada and other parts  of British Columbia.  Hon. Joseph Martin has been retained as counsel for the Canadian  Pacific Railway and his principal duty  will be to interview the members of  the Government and of the House and  endeavour to secure a majority of the  House in fat our of the Canadian  Pacific Railway's proposal.  ��������� No elfort has been left undone to  press the case of "the C.P.R. and  secure the assent of the Government  and eventually that of the House and  Senate.  The matter so far has only been discussed by members of the Government  individually and not in Council, but it  is understood that two leading members insist that the road must he a  national road, and be built, operated  and entirely under the direct control  of the Government.  Another member is said to have expressed his opinion to the effect that  the country should nob be burdened  with such an increase to the national  debt.   *    , s  "Work on the new standard guatre  railway from Trail to Robson is now  well under way.
