IS OPPOSED  TO SCHEME  Wallace, of Camborne, Protests  Very Strongly.���������Lardeau Mining Transaction Pending.���������  A Game of Freeze Out  H. S. Wallace, of Camborne, who is  in the city on business, was interviewed  yesterday by.a representative of The  Daily News, regarding his mission to  Nelson at the present time.  "My mission here," said Mr. Wallace,  "is to interview the Imperial Development Syndicate directors and enter a  protest on my own behalf aad that of  other Calumet and B. C. shareholders  resident in Camborne, and vicinity,  against the plan by which a new company about to  be formed���������called the |  Wrestling Match.  We   tho   undersigned    do    hereby  agree to wrestle one (hour under con-1  ilitions named below.': Straight catch- |  as-catcli-can rules to govern contest:  1. Strangled hold burred.  2.

(Signed)  (Witnesses)   Robt,  Thos,  Jack'McLennan.  Jim'.Wilbur.  Trimble.  Peterkit).  Revelstoke, May 9th, 1904.  Wilbur informs us\ that he has  wrestled with the '"Terrible Turk,"  Yusoff, and has also*'thrown the noted  Eva Gold Mines, Ltd.���������is to take over  wrestler "Farmer  Burns.'.'     On   the  the Eva mine at Camborne.    A con  siderable amount of stock in the C. &  B. C.'Co.' is held in Camborne and at a  meeting of shareholders held there last  week I was appointed to representtheir  interests and endeavor to secure better  terms from the Imperial Development  Syndicate. Mr. Rosenberger, who held  the bond on the Eva for the C. & B. C.  Co., has relinquished the bond to the  Imperial Development Syndicate as he  found it impossible to sell enough stock  in the east to complete the' payments.  Mr. Rosenberger, acting for some eastern shareholders in the C. & B. C. Co.,  presented a scheme to the Imperial  Development Syndicate whereby the  C. & B. 0. shareholders were to retain  an interest in the Eva only on condition  of taking stock, assessable to 50 cents  per share, in the new company. This  scheme an eminently satisfactory one  from an Imperial syndicate point of  view has been accepted by the company and C. & B. C. shareholders who  are unable or unwilling to stand the  assessments will lose what money they  have put into the Eva,.   "  . "Cambornites, some of whom are  heavily interested, feel very sore over  the matter, as they were not considered  or consulted iri'this new scheme, which,  if carried out, will result in great loss  to them, as nut a man in the Lardeau  will take stock on the new basis which  puts'a value on the property of double  its worth.  "Of course, legally," .said Mr. Wallace, "we bave no rights, but we all relied strongly on the virtual pledge of  the Imperial directors that when it  came to a final settlement the C. & B.  O. shareholders would receive equitable treatment. In fact, a resolution  to that elfect passed in a shareholders  meeting of the Imperial and the retiring Imperial directors in (winding up  their annual report said: 'We beg to  say that after carefully considering  the question from all points of view,  we feel justified in recommending to  you and to the incoming board of directors, that the Calumet British Columbia Gold Mines be recognized as  deserving* fair and equitable treatment.'  "I happen," continued Mr. Wallace,  "to be a shareholder in the Imperial as  well as in the C. & B. C, but I consider  the present scheme of treating the  shareholders in-the-latter company���������  who have supplied the capital to equip  the property with stamp mill, tram  line, etc., as well as to pay $25,000 to  the Imperial���������to be nothing short of a  game of freeze out. Many of the C. &  B. C. stockholders in the Lardeau have  put their last dollar into the Eva,  which they believe will eventually  prove a profitable mine and they  bought their stock on a basis which  placed a valuation of a quarter of a  million dollars on the property. Under  the new scheme, they are confronted  with the alternative of buying in again  on a valuation of $450,000 or losing  their first investment entirely.  "It works out this way: Under the  bond, by assessing ourselves we could  secure the Eva for $25,000 outright, by  the present scheme we pay $200,000and  get only a two-fifths interest in the  property. The Imperial is to own one-  half the stock fully paid up���������we are to  get two-fifths of it by putting up another $100,000.  " In accepting this proposition from  Mv. Rosenberger or some of the C. &  B. C. directors (who are also directors  in the Imperial), the Imperial company  has broken faith with the C. & B. C.  shareholders. In one breath they tell  us 'we will treat you fairly and equitably,' in the next they repent them of  their honorable impulse and, like Shy-  1- ...   wail( their pound of flesh.  other hand MacLennan's ability as a  wrestler is well known,'-holding, as he  does the amateur championship of B.  C. and the Maritime provinces, the  match should therefore, prove an interesting one. . For further particulars  see hand bills. ,  Concert and Dance.  Arrangements for the concert and  dance under the auspices of the Revelstoke Orchestra are well - in handl and  a good evening's enjoyment is promised those who attend. In addition to  the local talent which will assist,, a  number of professional artists have  been secured for this occasion, '��������� among  whom are " Drakero," the human'  frog, an artist unparalleled in his' line  on the American stage; Melrose and'  Dene, comedians, John' Light burn,  elocutionist, and C. .Prosser, .talented  tenor singer. _ A ��������� specialty ,*pf the  concert will be a , selection . by a  Chinese orchestra, comprising^ nine  instruments, which alone^is wellworth  the price of admission.*, This]orchestra  has been in training, for, two months  and. is a novelty which thas; never  before been1 produced in-���������Revelstoke.  After the concert a'social" dance will  take place, to which all. those patron--  ising the concert will be admitted free.  Don't forget the date, May 19th, in  the Opera House,'admission 50 cents,  reserved seats 75 cents. 1  lock,  "Yes, its a lieautiful scheme," concluded Mr. Wallace, but I hardly chink  the copper country contingent who are  supposed to be ready to put up the  money are such suckers as to swallow  thc hook which has not even the merit  of being cunningly baited."���������Nelson  News.  Provincial* Mining Association.  A meeting of the Executive Committee of*the Provincial Mining Association of British Columbia will 'be  held at Nelson on Wednesday, 18lh  inst.. at 2 o'clock, p.m. The special  business of the meeting will be (1) To  consider the question of endorsing  the resolution affecting the silver-lead  industry of British Coiumbia, urging  that the surplus, if any, of the appropriation voted under the Lead Bounty  Act be distributed until June 30th,  1905, among producers of lead ore who  find it advantageous under present  rather unusual conditions to export  their ores for treatment and marketing, and (2) to consider the position in  regard to the location of placer claims  over lode claims, as shown by the  recent cose of Tanghe vs. Morgan et  al., arising_out_of__the_location_of_the  Shamrock placer claim over the Lucky  Jack mineral claim at Poplar creek.  Other business will include the consideration of correspondence since the  convention last February, reports of  committees, and other matters connected with resolutions passed at the  convention.  Their Brother Honored.  ���������Wall Papers,   newest  patterns,  Canada Drug & Book Co.  at  William Macnab of Nelson, and  Allan Macnab, of Revelstoke, the well  known C. P. R. engineers, have a brother who is managing editor of the  Montreal Star. This brother, Brenton  A- Macnab, hod a unique honor conferred upon him the other day when  he was selected vice-president of the  Canadian section of tbe International  Hall of Journalists, which meets in  convention at the World's Fair St.  Louis, about the middle of this month,  Mr. Macnab is to be congratulated. He  is a good type of the younger generation of Canadian newspaper men. He  has risen to a position of standing in  journalism by sheer strength of pur-  l>ose, unflagging capability and mastery of detail, coupled with a temperament for business as well as a taste  for literature. As head of a big daily-  paper, one would think that the multiplicity of calls upon his time would  preclude such a man from outside  efforts. Not so, however. Mr. Macnab  has found time to write poems for  magazines and political and historical  articles that are quoted as the work'of  a painstaking person, possessing wide  knowledge of men and things. Mr.  Macnab is probably'the youngest managing editor of a big daily in Canada  today.  LAWYER BANCS  HAS CONFESSED  Under Crown's Protection Admits Getting Stolen Money-  Famous Mail Robbery Mystery  is Solved.  Winnipkg, May 10.���������Lawyer Bangs,  who was released on. bail in connection with the Wilcox trial, gave sensational evidence at the hearing . in  Regina yesterday. He appeared as  a witness for the Crown and admitted  receiving money which he knew to be  stolen. Wilcox told him where to  find the 'hiding place of the Bank of  Hamilton bills. At the conclusion  Wilcox was committed for trial.  Bangs, refused to give his evidence,  in answer to Crown Prosecutor Johnston's questions, unless given protection against incrimination statements.  The witness stated that he received  about $7,000 or $8,000 in Bank of Hamilton bills of $5 and .$10 denominations.  Asked where he got them, witness replied from a client, what client he  would not say. After some argument  he received the Crown's protection and  went on. Witness was asked if he had  received the money from Wilcox, as it  was known that Wilcox was the client  referred to.  *- The witness hesitated, quibbled and  said he had not received the money  from Wilcox. He had received it from  no one. He had gone to a certain  ,'place to get it. He wns told by Wilcox the money was there and to go  .there and get it. He thought it was  about February 1. He beard of the  ���������loss of the money afterwards.  When he went to the place Wilcox  named, he took what was there. ' He  did-not-know how much. the parcel  contained; He took it home; opened  it and examined it. 'He gave Wilcox  $200. He knew hc needed, it, for "he  had asked for it. He hod .no special  authority to invest the money. 'Wilcox'instructed hint,to*get it .changed.*  _^ The amount i'etnainiggiin -witness'  control could be obtained and restored  Wilcox had told the witness that the  money was stolen when he directed  him to the place where the money  was. The bills produced by. Detective  Chamberlain were not part. of the  stolen money.  ��������� The cross-examination was brie'f.  Witness stated that he had a good  idea that the money was stolen when  he -went io get it. He had mode no  arrangements as to how much he  would receive. He had not known  when he was released on bail that he  would be called as a witness. He had  bad a talk with Chamberlain that  morning. ��������� Nothing was said ' about  giving .evidence that was not necessary.  No defence was offered and Wilcox  was committed for trial.  ?tyty*j.'ty'  BOURNE BROS.  ty Hay, Oats, Bran, Shorts, Feed Wheat,  Flour, Rolled Oats, Etc.

The concert and bazaar held by the  Ladies' Aid of the Presby terian church  was a success in spite of unfavorable  weather. Quite a number partook of  refreshments in the afternoon and the  "sale-of "world was satisfactdTyT^what  was left being auctioned off in the  evening. The concert wus opened by  the Orchestra with a selection that  made lovers of music in the audience  regret all the more that it is so soon to  disband. The second number on the  programme was "The Old Brigade"  hy Air. Burk, some four or Hve others  joining in the chorus." Then followed  a flne recitation by Rev. Mr. Murray.  The duet by Mesdames Dent and  ��������� Creelman and the solo by Mr. Cook  were rendered in their usual good  style; Mrs. Bourne's voice sounded  very sweet in her solo " The Gift," and  Mrs. George's recitation " The One-  Legged Goose," was highly amusing,  calling forth a hearty encore. The  choir girls looked pretty in their white  gowns in the tableau. Mrs. Bews sang  well and was recalled. Mr. Watt also  responded to an - encore to his piano  solo and Mr. W. H. Humphreys  proved as great a favorite as ever. Mr.  Stalker, in his recitation, expressed  well the pathos of one side of the  American civil war. Mrs. Wilks'  solo was favorably received, and Mr.  Annan's .wax also good. A second  number by the Orchestra brought the  programme to a close.  Knights of Pythias.

Chinks Will Hang.  Victoria, May 10.���������Two Chinamen,  Wong On and Wong Gow, after a  week's trial, were convicted yesterday  of murdering^ a fellow countryman,  Man Quong, on December 31st.  Man Quong was manager of the  Chinese theatre in this city, and the  quarrel is supposed to^have had its ���������-  origin in bad feeling- between two  Chinese societies.

During Mr. Hatha-  way's absence last winter for a week,  some miscreants broke open the door  of his shock, broke the windows and  stole a lot of provisions, blankets, etc,  and destroyed other stuff in the cabin.  It is a pity that the parties - who committed the act cannot be discovered  and severly punished.  Obituary.  Geo.

Prof.  Jones, who is .in charge of the club's  premises has all the paraphernalia  necessary for tho "present and is now  putting the boys through the different  exercises. The ladies' room has been  newly papered and will be suitably  furnished in a few days. Already the  advantages to be derived from such an  institution are becoming apparent and.  the afternoon and evening classes are  being largely attended and all who are  interested in the welfare of the club  are invited to join.}.  In most of the short stories dealing  with life, in raining camps mention is  made of the code of ethics that obtain,  special ��������� reference often being made to  the shelter and food that is frequently  found and partaken of in miners  camps and that when the owner is  absent it is considered quite in order  to make use of the-food and to,occupy_  the bunk with the understanding that  the temporary occupant leaves everything just as he found it. Knowing  the unwritten law the Revelstoke  Navigation Company, owners of  Boyds place, left two months provisions in the house, cooking utensils,  bedding, etc., and vegetables in the  root house, o sly to find on a recent  visit that some miscreant or miscreants had violated all the rules of  hospitality, carried off provisions and  furniture,'completely ruined the cook- ���������  ing utensils left behind, burst open the  root house door leaving it wide open  with the result thet the vegetables aro  all spoilt.. Too severe a criticism cannot be. meted out to the person or  persons" who are guilty .of such acts '  and it has caused the owners to determine that hereafter no provisions.wjll  be left in the house, in fact at the end  of the season every portable article  will be brought down by the boat to  Revelstoke.  The appeal of St. Andrew's congregation to the Synod of British Columbia and Alberta against the Kamloops  Presbytery, was heard on the 6th inst.  at Edmonton. The congregration was  i-epresented by Messrs. A. E. Miller,  John Lawson and Thomas More. The  appeal of the congregation was sustained.' This evening at eight o'clock  there will be a service in the church  at which will be present the Revs.  Messrs.

During thc present winter the tour-  ! ist steamers running to tho McJiter-  I r'anean, tire Canurj' Islaavis, Bermuda, the Buhainas, Barbados and tho  Antilles, ihe West Indies, Mexico  and Europe, have reached a deg,ce  of luxuriousncbs which, according to  lottcts written by ihoso wl.o aro  spending the Winter nbroad to their  ; friends surpass anything of past  | yeai s.  In view of ull this it is interesting  to recollect that so lute even as  16t3o an ocean voyage was something  to bo dreaded, and ono never  dreamed of embarking on tho  li,,'ii teas in thoso 'days unless compelled to do so by  t'io utmost call of nccc-sity. Had'  iinyono prophesied during tho "J0.1  that a dny would come when peoplo  would go to sea for pleasure ho  would have beeu set down as a madman or a fool.  The first passangcr vessels were,  of courso, ordinary merchant ships,  the niitsters of which engaged to  take a cei tain number cf pa-'Sengcrs  on each' trip. These old-fa. <hionoi  sea captains wore far different from  our modern, polite and accomplished  commanders of the big ocean greyhounds. They regarded the passengers as little bettor tban-sailois, suid  having grown hard and fust to the  old doctrine that the word of a ship  master is law at son, thej- could  not brook the least suggestion or  complaint.  TAUGHT CAPTAIN A LESSON.  Along in 1S5S a case, was tiled in  Bristol,'-England, which taught the  old-time sea captains a lesson, and  which gave t'jem to understand that  a pos&engor on board a ship stood  in an entirely dilrcront relation to  lho captain of tho ver>sel from that  borne.;by li.e sailors. Tie case attracted a great deal of attention at  thu lime. It is interesting, and  was rcpo tod as follows :  "At Bristol, England, the captain  of a merchant ship has been amciccd  in ?l,800;'damages for putting a passenger in irons. it appeared that  the passenger Was a bit of a Scottlr.  lavvj-er, and the captain something  of a brusque disciplinarian, and tha  parties were tho.-ofore just about  fitted for raising a breeje on shipboard.   The case is thus reported :  "Circuit Court, Bristol, England"���������  Before Baron Watson and a jury.  Ignatius Krog vs. Captain Frankli:i,  mavtcr of tl c merchant ship. Undaunted. The declaration charged  the defendant "with liavir.g'assaulted  the plaintilT, and put in irons, and  impri.-oned him.  KOW OVEll THE LIGHTS.  "Tlio plaintiff cmburked at the  Cape on the 10th of May. Notl.ii g  took pltv.o for some time, biit'on ti.e  Sth. of June, when Mr. Krog was  pacing the poop, iic heard a noise  below, and found there was an altei-  cation about putting out thc lamps  in the saloon at 8 o'clock nt night,  this having been done bv* tl e Captain's older for vexation and annoyance. Mr. Krog. not knowing what  the noise was about, 'asked.:':?, what  the row was. Tho captain called  out : 'Who the devil are jou ?' Mr.  Krog : "Mj- name isKrog." Ti:e captain repeated the name several times  in the: most insulting manner, and  pronounced it 'Frog.' **Mr. Kiog  said : 'Mj- status in society is as  good as yours.' The captain thon  began making a noit-e. Mr. Krog  said���������:. '-Captain Franklin, no doubt  j'ou are captain of the ship and ,  crow, and so.far.'as the crew arc  concerned thoy are bound to;.obey  j-our orde s; but it is different with  rojecct to the* passengers, who have  a right to the use 'and enjoyment?of  the saloori, but j-ou are tho landlord  of a floating hotel.'  PUT HIM IN IKONS.  "Captain Franklin became furious  and said : 'I wi 1 put you in irons.'  Mr. Krog did not believe he wns  poi'ious, and said : 'You dare riot do  that.'. The captain went to hi?  cabin and put a revolver in his pocket, and thon he rushed into the' Saloon and said : "Vou passengers l.avo  been endeavoring to tako poisos.-.ioi.  of_tlfis-ve7sci���������for" twenty-four "hours;  bul j-ou shall only do. this over my  bod.v, aiul here is my revolvor.' And  hc drew himself up like a captain  on the ttego. He piped up Lis  crew, ns if there'had been n. mulinj*.  'Ilie captain then retired/but Mr.  Krog was put in Irons, tnken below  and chuincd to the cabin floor.

Captain .'Franklin then removed the irons."  The result was that Captain  Franklin had lo prr.v Mr. Krog SI,-  800.

It   is  a  matter  of  regret   tlrat,   although this country is about lo assume  enormous liabilities in connection with  the   building   of   u     transcontinental  railway. Canadians are receiving scant  con.Mderalioii at  lho iinnds of the railway  company  which  is  to bcuufit so  much from tlie new road.   Tin* Grand  Trunk   has   a   number   of   surveyors  working  along  the  proposed line but,  sad to relate they  are all   Americans.  Canadians   are shut out from earning  any of  the money which this country  must eventually pay.    The injustice of  the situation  has  been brought to the  attention of thc Government on more  than one occasion  but those'in power  refuse  point blank to interfere in runway in behalf of   the   many   capable  young Canadians, who at considerable  expense and by hard work, have taken  courses  in  engineering.    Why should  they  be   ignored   for   foreigners who  come   from   a   country -which refuses  absolutely to allow Canadians to accept  positions from tliis side of the border.  "Where   is  the   much   vaunted Labor  Bureau?     In   the   United States the  thing would   not   bo   tolerated   for a  moment.

And tlie  railway is to be called   the   "National  Transcontinental!"  if it is "National"  the Government should at once put an  end   to   the   disgraceful treatment of  our own young men.  words  the common   incidents of   life  and we admire their work.

Some years ago  it  appears, Green   wus possessed of three  ID-acre   lots   sonii'vvheri* in Washington   state.      Ono   lot   ho  cleared and  pluiited   with   fruit Ircc-s.    The olhsr  two  ]ots  lie sold,   but   in making out  tiro deed the  fruit   lot was by mistake  included and one of  the other lots loft-  out.     Tho  mistake was noticed and n  new and correct deed made.     Here  is  whore   the   mystery   comes     in   and  anothcr'mistake made. The purchaser  vvas   allowed   to   retain   the lirst and  incorrect  deed   or   else  he   obtained  possession   of   it   afterwards.    Green  left   Washington state and eventually  became a trapper in Cariboo.      When  tlie report of his death reached Washington proceedings were taken to wind  ti ji the estate, which Was claimed'by a  sister.    The deceiver enters here.    He  records  the  deed  of  tlie fruit lot and  wipes out tho estate.   Green reappears  on the scene and  gives pretty conclusive proof that   he is very much alive.  The lawyer visits Ashcroft and has by  wire and mail further  communication  with Green aiid returns homo.    Green  will   arrive   from   Cariboo next week  and   when   lie   reaches    "Washington  there are pretty good chances of something   doing   of   intense interest to a  mnn who recorded a deed of property  not  his.

Canada,  was buncoed-in the Alaskan boundary'  award���������led like a lamb to the slaughter by the diplomatists of Great Britain and the United States. A copy  of the Ottawa Evening; -Journal, just |  . to hand contains the following :  Curiously -enough, just after Lurd  Alverstone rose to remark in England  this week about the desirability of  closer Imperial ties, Sir Louis Jette at  Quebec broke silence for the first time  on the Alaska award since his return  fiom the arbitration.  Sir Louis Jetton in an address this  week to the faculty of Laval University, referred to the award.  ������������������It was diplomacy that triumphed,"'  said Sir Louis. "The question hud  probably been negotiated and decided  in advance." To this indictment the  severest ever yet uttered of either  Loi-d Alverstone or the Imperial government, Sir Louis added tbe raking  condemnation:  "Wc- were not plenipotentiaries,  neither were we diplomats. We did  not   have   thc   right  to make conces-  ~sioiis or compromises; \Ve were  judges, and were told to interpret the  treaty to the letter."  This is not newspaper excitement or  shallowness. It is the deliverance of  an Imperial commissioner, a Canadian  jrrdge. lt itimatw* bluntly Hint Lord  Alverstone played a discreditable part.  No doubt concealed to himself it might  be, by a mistaken assumption as to  bis own superior weight and position:  but discreditable we agree. The best  Alverstone can do for Imperial unity.  so far as Canada is concerned, is to say  nothing.  Romance of a Gold Mine,  A tale is told of a rich gold mine in  Idaho, witha ledge of ore which once  extended   above   the   surface   of  the  ground   in "a clear, solid ridge several  feet   high   and   entirely distinct from  the    surrounding     formation.      This  ledge was long and unbroken, and lay  directly across the course whioli.huu-  dreds of prospectors  took  every year*  to  reach  other  gold  fields.    This ob-  I striiction  of rock���������the. great.value ol'  which   was   long   unknown���������was too  high to  be surmounted by  puck animals, so  the prospectors   cut  a trail  directly through it.    For several years  these eager gold  seekers passed backward   and   forward   oner  the trail in  search of   gold   mines.      Ono  night a  prospector,"camping near this ledge of  rock, picked up a bit of it, and from  force'of habit, took it to a creek near  by and washed it.   Then lie examined  the stone, und  to  his great astonishment   he   found   colors   in it���������bits of  sparkling gold.     Tlie  prospector, does  not mistake gold when lie sees it.    He  is not deluded by   iron crystals or bits  of mica, as the tenderfoot frequently  is.     The   gold   sparkle is clearer and  brighter than   that of any other mineral, und   it   is   the  same in sunshine  and shadow.     The prospector, treniu-  =lous!}^excited-,=broke=o������)Uniore=pieces;  of   the   ledge   and found more   of   it  bearing   free   gold.      Then lie located  his claim, and   that was the beginning  of   a   rich   mine.      Vet   for years tho  sagest of  prospectors had passed over  the trail through'tho   cut in the lodge,  never  .suspecting  its   value, although  hy   its  very  prominence it   seemed to  invite inspection.

There vvas pride and pleasure at seo  ]ng the lad made much of. Perhaps  there wus a little jealous'fear in Mr.  Meade's anxiety to hear how Philip  had fared at Mar well, where lie dined  ancf slept; Claude Medway, wiio had  renewed the boyish' acquaintance in  tie Crimea, being nt tho court just  then.

He  Is   Over  Sixty-flve  Years      of  Age, and Is Not Physically  Strong.  Tho generals who arc leading tlio  Japanese armies against Kussia aro  mon who havo proved thoir skill and  iilllulciicy. They have seen actual  service, nnd have fought over the  very ground whero they now meet the  Russians. The first on tho list in  order of scrvico is Field Marshal  Vamugnta, who is not only first in  rank, but easily first In the esteem of  the Japanese public antl in the judgment of thii Government. He is a  veteran ef many wars, having begun  servlcn in thu struggle that restored  the Emperor to power in 38<>8. In  the following year ho visited Hussia  and France, stud} ing military subjects. In 187*i ho beenmo Assistant  Secretary of War���������a position which  in Japan is always held by a general olllcer of the army. In the following year he was mado Lieutenant-  General, and two years later Secretary of Wnr.  Thc next year saw Japan in thc  throes of a fierce civil war. The rebellion wns led by her greatest soldier, Field -Murshnl Saigo, who had  wilh him some 50,000 of her best-  trained mon. The Government was  compelled to put forth  ITS GREATEST STUENGTTT. ,  An Imperial Prince was appointed to  the nominal command, but as Chief  of Stall Vamagata was the real Gon-  eral-in-chiof, nnd led the forces which  crushed the rebellion. Saigo having  been slain, Vuniugnlu became the  fust military man in the empire, and  ��������� was promoted to thu full rank of  General.  lleing a man of great mental ability, boundless energy and strong  personality, he soon became almost  as' prominent in the political world  ns in the military, and shared with  (Marquis Ito the position of greatest  In'lucncc with the Emperor, lie vvas  several times Prime Minister, nnd  when not in that posilion always  held soiro portfolio in the Cabinet.  ITe never ceased his active share in  tho development of the' army.  _ Through various official positions,  such' 'as* Inspector Gerrer.nl, Chief of  the General Slaff and Secretary of  * War," he kept himself in close touch  with all parts of the army organization.  When war started with Chinti in  1S9-1 Yamagata was immediately given command "of the first army that  invat'ed-Manchuria.    Those-who were  t with tho army at the time describe  the immense enthusiasm witb which  the coming of thc great General wns  ������������������ greeted by his soldiers. The rigors  of  a  Manchurinn   winter  speedily   re-  " drrced  Yamagata to such  a condition  : thnt the- Emperor, fearful of losing  altogether tie servires of his ablest  officer, called him back to Tokio to  act ns his ,  CHIEF MILITARY ADVISER.    -  After tho war* Yamagata was made  a Marquis and tho now military rank  of Field Marshal vvas established, to  which ho wus promoted. The active  interference of Russia, backed., by  Franco and Germany, which deprived  Japan of thc fruits of hcr victory,  led the Government to seek some understanding t.'rrit would* preserve the  independence of Corea. Yamagata  was " appointed" special Ambassador  t for this purpose nnd proceeded to  .St. Petersburg, where lie effected  the  ��������� treaty whicli  is the basis of  Japan's  . latest    demands upon     Russia.'    Not  trusting altogether to this, Japan  proceeded to double lier army and  jTcntly -increase hcr navy. Several  officers .were promoted to the rank  of Field, Marshal in the army and  an e- ������������������-] rank in the navy and organized into a Supremo Council of  War.        Of this Yamagata was-made  ��������� chief, a position which he still holds.  " Corsidcring   the season, of  thc   year  and the .fact "that he is over sixty-  five years old and ratlvcr frnil phvsi-  " cal'y, it_ is improbable that he will  take the field  in  person, but in    any  " case ho will occupy much the same  place irr this war that Von. Moltltc  did iti  the Franco-Prussian  conflict.  WOMAN'S MGERS  THE LIVES OV ALL WOMEN BESET BY SECRET TROUBLES  A Simple and Certain Method by  Which the Ills of Girlhood and  Womanhood May be Overcome.  Every  woman's  health depends  upon, hot* blood���������ils richness and its re-  gulaii'ty.      Sometimes  it is  hard   to  believe   that nen ly  a 1  common  diseases spiing from the blood, no mutter  how dilferent they  may seem.    It  is hard,  for instance,  to  realli'.o that  rheumatism and indigestion are both  I.he   ctitiso   of had   blood,    and    both  cured by  good  blood.   Rut tliere can  ho no doubt in tlio Case of the secret  troubles    of   a   woman's   life,     f om  fifteen  to  fifty.   Tlie blood  Ip  plainly  the  cause of all  her iriegularllies  in  health.     Thun conies the signs of secret   illness,   tho    headaches;      backaches    nr.d sr.'twhes; thnpalo cheeks  and     dull    eyes;   the  failing .appetite  nnd   irritable      nerves;    the hysteria  and  .blliotiKiic's:    tie  weakness     and  lnngor;  tho distress  and despondency  iintl',. a'l   the  weary   wretched   feelings  Unit, attack womon in  their times of  ill health.'.. And the blood  is to blame  for  it all.       When tl.o  blood   is  rich  and  red  and  regular,   there  is    littlo  trouble  in  the lifo of maid  or mother.     Tliat is why Dr. Williams' Pink  I'ills for  I'ale People are woi Ui ti eir  weight     in     gold  to     every   woman.  Tl ey     actually     mako     new     blood.

This     is  the  sre inl  mision of  Dr.  Williams'  Pin1*- Tills and theic is no other medicine in  tho woi 11 can do  it so sttc-  ccsft.lly.      Mrs.JGeo.

Mrs. Danby says :  "I.think Dr. Williams Pink  Pi'Is  a  blessing  to  suITeiing  women.  For  a long time I  was  a great  suf-  fe cr     from the ailments tliat  afflict  s.o many of my fox.   I was extremely  nervous at all times, suffered a great  deal  wiUi headaches and  indigestion.  In   fact   I   vvas in  a most miserable  condition  when  I  began the use     of  Dr.    Wil iams'   Pink   Pills,  but  after  taking 'ti cm a short lime I began to  improve,    and  through   tlieir  further-  use I am  altogether  like a new  wo  man.      T   am sure   if   moro     women  wot Id take Ur. Williams* Pink    Pills  tl ey would be convinced of thc groat  good  ihov can do." '  What Dr..Wi liams* Pink Pills have  now, with war probablo in the Far  East, thero is a boom in all things  Japanese.  Tlio most practical blouses have  their Japanese effect in quuint touches of  embroidery.  Small pieces of this embroidery���������  faithful copies of work centuries old,  and of great value���������may bo bought  nt reasonable prices, and delightful  effects arc obtained by their use, for  these old Japanese embroideries arc  soft and beautiful in coloring.  A blouso ia dull bluo silk crepon,  trimmed with Japanese embroidery of  dull old blues on bud silks, is a particularly good example ot this style.  The green and orango embroideries  harmonize Wonderfully with several  of our modern dark shades.  More pretentious,-but still with old  Japanese embroidery us their char-  nclori-.tic feature, are tlie blouses  made  from mandarins'  Jackets.  These tire almost solidly covered  with tho old embroidery, and frequently have gold Interwoven with It;  but even with a gold dragon ou tho  blouse front the elTect is not so gay  or spertncular ns it sotiiv.i'8, for tho  dull soft tones of the old embroidery  nro quiet, irr spite of the somewhat  startling  designs.  A dull red r.tttin, embroidered nil  over wilh dull blue shaded butterflies  of varying sizes, is one of the Jap- ]  anesc idens in materials. A (.Villi  g'O'.'n penreo boldly embroidered in  ecru cotton  is another.  At ono of tho Oriental shops nro  to ho found decorative buttons covered with old Japanese embroidery  and sot in-metal rims.

Several families arc now out of qii.-irarrLiiie  and it i.s expected that the ban will be  raised entirely a few days hence.  No. 2 of this morning was in two  sections, tin; first consisted of 4 carloads of Chinamen en route to the  Eastern States under escort, 3 carloads  of silk and 1 of fish. The second  section was made tip of 11 cars containing many recent arrivals from the  Orient.  Ed. Graham, who left early last  week for a hunting trip up I.-aac creek  was in towrr Friday and reported that  the result of his quest so far was a  splendid specimen of a silver tip  measuring S feet and a one year old  dark brown bear which he had caught  alive and has chained up at Wigwam.  Our esteemed contemporary pays  the telephonic and telegraphic communication rather an equivocal compliment in his last issue by attributing  to it the cause of delay in reporting  the accident which happened to R. G.  Hargreavc. one of the employees of  the The Silver Cup Mines Co. several  months ago.  Mr. John Pluinmer. a resident of  Clan William, was brought into the  hospital Monday in a state of unconsciousness, upon examination it wn.s  rfouncLtbat���������Lwo-i-i bs-had-heen-broken  in addition to abrasions on the head  and hands. It is believed that the old  gentleman lost his balance whilst  seaching for eggs and fell from the  ham loft to the ground.  Ruth Harley, 10 years old. was shot  at Calgary orr Monday morning by  some person unknown." The'unfortunate young girl was feeding the  chickens in the back yard of her  parents' home about 11 o'clock in the  morning when a shot was fired and  the bullet struck the young girl in the  throat severing the juglar vein, nnd  she died shortly after* at tho genera!  hospital. Up to the present the police,  of Caluritry have been unable to find  the party who fired the fatal shot.  tytytytytytytyty<M>tytytytytytytytytytytytytytytyty  ^VisS***--*^^^  ������ ALWAYS-RgMfiMftigft   ^5i&a '"  ASO  Are manufactured to  Secure Your  Confidence  and Patronage.
