 ���to  >*4  THE FILIPINO CAPITAL CAPTURED  "t&t  BY   THE   AMERICANS.  Aguinaldo "Was in Command   of the  Insurgents, Who Appear to Have Been  Defeated at Every Stand.  Manila, March 27���7:10 a.in.���The Americans have advanced along the line of  the Dagpan railroad, driving the Filipinos  from Malinta and Cycayan,  where there  were  3000   inhabitants.     Last night the  brigades of Otis and Hale encamped in  the  enemy's   trenches   at    Mas'cauyau.  Wheaton's   brigade   formed   a   junction  with the remaiuder of McArthur's division at Maliuta, and the latter, leaving  Wheaton there, marched along the railroad to Maycauyau.   This place was fortified,  and   for  300   yards   from   it   were  trenches on each side of the track.   These  were taken possession of by the American  troops.   The day's   work of the United  States troops consistedcin   storming the  successive treuehes.   The Filipinos occupying them were completely hidden.  The euemy-poured a strong fire from  every trench until tliey were disturbed  ' by flanking volleys, when they would disappear into the woods and jungle, only to  make a stand at the next line. The American-loss was remarkably small, seven  being reported killed and tweuty-five  wounded. It is known that the Filipinos  were so protected that they sufferedlittle.  No dead insurgeuts were found in the  trenches. Forty prisoners were taken by  the Americans and the estimated rebel  casualties numbered twenty. The insurgents broke their guns when compelled to  ��� abandon them. Cruiser Helena aud a  . gunboat shelled Malaban aud the country  beyond, While the Monadnock used all its  batteries on Parana que for two hours for  the purpose of destroying the military  stores there. A. great smoke was caused,  but as the insurgents are iu possession ot*  the town the results of the shelling are  not obtainable.  The  evacuation  of  Malabon  was picturesque;  thousands of men, women and  children,   loaded  down   with  household  goods���some with their dearest treasures,  fighting cocks, under their arms���poured  across the swamp in the early morning.  The    exploded   caisson at  the   railroad  bridge proved a bar to the Americans.  Ten   soldiers   of   the  Oregon   regiment,  while searching for two of those killed  early in the fighting, sueaked into thecity  in the morning and found the place in a  V   condition of. chaos.   The inhabitants see--  H ing  them,   fled" in   panic,   thinking the  ^Americanforces were in possession.

Japan Taking the Lead.  Seattle, March 27.���Advices by the last  Jtipane.se steamer state that the government of Japan is seriously contemplating  the   nationalization   of railways, and  a  commission recently appointed to investigate   the   subject met at Yokohama ori  March 6th.   A bill has been introduced in  the  Japanese  house   of  representatives  granting special navigatiou subsidies for  a period of ten years  to steamship lines  plying between Japau and Europe, and  Japan and Seattle  and   San   Francisco.  The European line is to recieve annually  2,073,833 yens, the Seattle line 034,300 yens,  and the San Francisco line 1,013,880 yens.

Philadelphia, March 27.���An erecting  gang from the:Pencoyd Iron Works will  leave this city in a few days en route to  Africa, to build a bridge across the Atbara  river in the Soudan, near Khartoum. The  seven spans of the bridge, with a total  length of 1100 feet, have already been  shipped. The order was placed with the  Pencoyd Iron Works by the British war  office; less than six weeks ago, the company agreeingto build the structure it-  seven weeks. The Pencoyd company, it  is said, was given precedence over-the  English bridge builders, because the latter  had Stated that it would require seven  months to complete the structure;.'.

Further, all towns  abandoned by the Filipino troops are first  to.be burned.

Tne shelling Of Pkranaque was not pre-  uiediated. The tiU'ret ship Monadnock  was anchored off the town, and the insurgents, emboldened by the long silence of  the warship on guard duty, opened fire on  her with muskets, with the result that  one man was killed and three wounded.  The Monadnock then destroyed half of  the town, including the church.  The Washington regiment had an exciting experience and displayed much gallantry. The soldier., found a band of insurgents concealed in a stone house over  which a French flag was flying. A private volunteered to set fire to the building. The troops approached when the  building was burning and the Filipinos  hadapparently fbd, but they were greeted  with a sudden volley from a balcony of  the house. This resulted in the building  being cleared of the enemy, iii short order.  Steamer Ashore.

It is  first bf a carload shipment which will be  sent to the smelter just as soon as the ice  breaks up on the Arm.   For the last ten  days the force of men who will be employed at the mine taking out ore and developing it have been building a rawhide trail  and putting  up   cabins,   and yesterday  this work was completed and everything  was in readiness to commence the series of  shipments contemplated by the company^  From everyone yet who has seen the new  strike and the amount of ore in sight, the  verdict has been obtained that the Nettie  L is one of the best of Trout Lake's developed prospects.   From recent assays received the Ore can be said,  without exaggeration, to be the x'ichest ori the average of any yet exposed in the district;  Billy Poole has been given a free hand  as     far     as   the   development   of V'the  property is' concerned, and he is going. tbV  thoroughly develop the mine during the**  coming season, employing as many rrieri,  from time to time, as the progress of the*  work justifies, in order to have the property on a  sound   shipping basis  by the  time snow flies nextafall.

A rainy week-day the normal man can  live through witliont an excessive display  Of spleen, but a rainy Sabbath is apt to  make the most affectionate of husbands,  fathers and sons the very incarnation of  grumpiness.>��vVith the gentler sex, atmospheric dampness^has more effect on their  vanity than on their spirits. The new  dress or hat which had been expected to  put all rivals in the shade, roust be admired privately; its public appearance  must be postponed till a fine Sunday  comes along���an event which happens  occasionally.  Eminent statisticians, whose hair has  entirely disappeared or turned grey  through laborious hours spent amid  figures, estimate that on a wet Sunday  three-quarters of a million London fathers,  happy and otherwise, nurse a similar  number of babies. If the latter were  placed in a straight line, head to heels,  they would reach from Loudon to Liverpool, a distance of 201 miles.  Furthermore, on a wet Sunday people  spend most of the day in doors, and more  food is eaten than during any twenty-four  hours in the preceding week. The consequences are indigestiou, attacks of  "nerves" and visits to doctors or chemists.  To these two professions a rainy Sabbath  in the metropolis means ah increase of  fees varrying in the aggregate from ��1000  to ��1500.  ..,;V---'---;'.^,':V;P.53^  Vf. P.

Want a Duty on Lumber.  A meeting of the council of the Kaslo  Board of Trade was held on Friday evening to consider various matters affecting  the district. A circular letter was read  by president Buchanan urging the _3o-  minion government to impose a reciprocal  duty wpon sawn lumber and shingles imported into Cauadaf similar to that imposed by the Uuited States upon like articles going into that: country. After considerable criscUV-siOn it was resolved upon  the motion Of 11. F. Green, M. T. P., to  memorialize the government aloilg the  lines asked in the letter. It was also re-  Solved to presentsanew to the government  the reasons why lead manufacturers  Should be subjected to duty, with the adj  ditional request that bonding priviliges  be secured froiu the United States, so that  lead ore shipped to that Country may be  returned to Canada for manufacture here,  without the additional cost of the United  States duty. On Monday another meeting of the council will beheld to take into  consideration the advisability of memor-  alizing the local government to construct  a wagon road up Ball creek from the  Upper Duncan. It is alleged that thi��  road will give an outlet for.several large  mines which must otherwise remain undeveloped.   A Better Monthly Yield Expected.  Although the former clean-ups at the  Athabasca have been disappointing to  those who thought that the company's  mill was running all the time on high-  grade ore, it is likely that the clean-up  for March will be much better than those  of any former month. During the past  month the average value of the ore milled  has been a great deal higher, and there  has not been so much country rock put  through. In former months the average  valuo of the material put through tlie  mill was iu the neighborhood Of $20 to  the ton, as against an average of $90 per  LOCAL   NEWS   AND   GOSSIP.  "Bob" Nelson has completed the contract of running an additional 50 feet of  tunnel on the Princess mineral claim,  which is owned by mayor Neelands. The  extra work did not tap the ledge as was  expected, and a contract for another fifty  feet will be let. It is thought that the  ledge will be encountered within half this  distance, and the balance of the work can  be done in drifting along it.  JY K. Strachan will have the assessment  roll of the city ready to lay before the  city council on Monday, April 10th. The  new roll will show a considerable increase  in land values as wellas a big advance in  the value of improvements, as it will include nearly all the building which took  place last summer. When the former roll  was made up, nearly all the new buildings  were in course of erection and.no attempt  was made to take the , value of the improvements into account. For the same  reason, the buildings which are now going  up will not appear until the roll for 1900 is  made up. V  " The v Sal mo sawmill has completed the,  order placed by the city council for the  lumber necessary for the completion of  the electric light flume. The lumber is  now on thecars ready for shipment. It  will be distributed along the line of the  proposed flume while the snow is on the  ground, and when the frost is out of the  ground the.flume will be carried; through  to completion without further delay.  In answer to an inquiry made by himself, mayor Neelands has been informed  by the deputy proyincial secretary that  the board of license commissioners for the  city is now complete, the third member of  the board being John A. Turner, government agent. The board of license commissioners is therefore composed of mayor  Neelands,; alderman McKillop and John  A. Tjirner.

'���'  I was visiting a friend the other evening,  when   the door bell .rang, aud   the  maid   brought  in  a  card.      My  friend  glanced at it and said :   "Show Mr. ���   into the drawing room, and light the big  chandelier." Tome she said, "Now, we  can chat for an hour. He will stand in  front of the big looking-glass, and pose to  his heart's coutent. He is never so happy  as when looking at himself. That is his  sole object in coming here. We always  leave him to himself for some time, and  he tells everybody that he enjoys his  visits here more than to any other house.  And yet men contend that women are  vain, and they are not. I am sure no girl  is so possessed of vanity as the gentleman  I have mentioned.  Anyone who has lived along the main  lice of the Canadian Pacific in the  mountains of this province is aware how  easy it is to raise a stampede over a  reported discovery of placer gold. Such  a discovery was reported last fall, and  now in every town from Laggan to Revelstoke parties are outfitting for the newel  dorado. The following regarding the  reported discovery is' from the Golden  Era of the 24th :  The placer strike recently, made on the  tributaries of the Fraser river in the vicinity of Tete Jaunne Cache appears to be  creating a lot of attention at Edmonton,  and it is reported  that 500 people will-  shortly leave Edmonton for the new field,  going in by the Yellowhead pass.    Another party is said to be outfitting at Cal-'  gary for.the supposed el dorado.   People  are also arranging to go iu from Golden  and Donald.   Among others from Donald  archdeacon McKay and  "Chan" Rattan -  talk of going to Tete Jaune Cache instead  of Atlin, as at first they intended.  One of  the best means of access will be by water,,  goingfrom Beaver by the Columbia river,  running  or   portaging  Surprise  rapids,  twenty miles north of Beaver, and thence  by  boat to the Big, Bend, where Canoe  rivervcomes  in,   which is said to afford  good facilities for boating for over forty  miles beyond the Big Jam.   This jam affords in itself no difficulty, as boats have  been taken over it by cutting away some'  of the overlying timber.  Reports  reach Golden that fifty men  started  last   week   from Edmonton  for',  Tete Jaune Cache.   The Edmonton Bulletin publishes a letter, received  from one  of the prospectors at Tete Jaune Cache,  by name'Jackson.    It appears that Jackson went in there last year and  was the  first to find gold on Swift Current, having  picked Up a piece of quartz showing the  precious metal.   This he communicated to  Holliday and party from Golden,and who  went ;in there last season.    They pros-   ;  pected  Swift Current  and* found   good   ,  prospects at rim-rock,   came   to Golden  and outfitted, returning in the fall when  the present strike was made. Inhis letter  to his wife Jackson says that there was a "_  dispute as to who should stake the dis-" -  cove'ry claim, and a meeting of the pros-  pectors from^Golden wasahe.ldi^w:fifl'iTf.itp''ft'  was decided that as JacksOhiwasthe fi  to drawa;ttentiohtb thecgrbund;heshould^.,  "stake ;the^claimfahdfthe.5pthers  af terv hi_hl.V"iJ-icksoh "states -thatthe ?lmBV v  sunk/a shaft to bedrock andj'has:/pa.yfdii.ii;;;  .runnin'g(fif tyVcehts.tovthe panV and.that Ja.S  __uauvcan-rnakeV$4pVa day."rHp, describes.

C.  ���   The business men of Fernie have organized a board of trade, with the following-  named as officers: H. JBentley, president;  J. VV. Nay, vice-president; G. G. Henderson, secretary; GeorgeLevassenr,G. Cody,  H. J. Johnson, A. Joyce, A. B. Trites and  W.    W.    Tuttle,   executive   committee.  Fernie is the Crow's Nest Pass railway  coal town, and the manager of the Crow's  Nest Coal Company was present at the  meeting at which the board of trade was  organized.   He is reported as saying that  the formation .Of a board of trade was a  naatter of interest to the town and would  have the hearty support of himself personally and Of  the company  he  represented, if conducted on proper lines.     It  was   considered   undesirable    that    the  company should have any official connection with the board* as the latter would  be   more   unfettered   in   their  action if  independent, but as long as they confined  themselves    to    promoting     the    commercial   success   of the  town   his  sympathy would be with them.   They should  avoid  interfering   with  public   matters  which  did not properly  fall within the  scope of such an institution, notably town  management and   control, which should  be exercised in friendly cooperation with  the inhabitants���-by the company until incorporation became necessary, when such  matters would pass into the hands of the  municipal council. With this reservation,  and on this distinct understanding, the  board of trade could count on tbe support  of  the  company, and  he wished  them  every success.   Evidently, Fernie is to be  The attention of the city engineer is respectfully called to the time that is taken  to repair leaks in the water main.:, and  also to the number of consumers who are  shut off every time a leak is repaired.  Today every consumer of water on Vernon  street was put to inconvenience because  of a leak in the main on Ward street. A  few valves on the mains would prevent  these oft-occurring annoyance1?.   .

He was sent  tb Ottawa as a delegate by those opposed  to the Deadman Island lease, and while  there on that mission, which is.on'e that  concerns .Vancouver alone, he loses no opportunity to get ih a word against the  Kettle River Valley railway charter.  McLagan was one of the bitter opponents  of the building of the Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway.  Tub Canadian Pacific give it out that  an addition will be made to the Hotel  -Vancouver-this-year-that-will-r*nake-that"  hotel the equal in size of the Palace hotel  in San Francisco. It has not yet been  hinted that before commencing the work  a taxation-exemption bylaw will have  to be passed by the ratepayers of Vancouver.  Tiirc mail facilities in Kootenay were  never good, for some reason. It takes  letters eight days to go from Nelson to  Kokanee Creek, a distance of 12A miles.  Is Arbitration a Fad?

They fin ally agreed  to arbitration, but split on the question of  choosing an umpire, and all their negotiations came to naught. This is one more  instance of failure proving the absurdity  of international arbitration. An agree-  meent to arbitrate a question pushes aside  the question and raises a number of  others, which in most instances are as  delicate and difficult as the original one,  and require tbe same righteousness, courtesy and forbearance. If the Anglo-American Commission had attempted to arrange  the details lor submitting the choice of an  arbitrator to arbitration it would have  been in loyal and logical harmony with  the spirit of this modern fad.

"See, see! a stone church!"  "Where?"  "On the farthest hill, nearly  away; don't you see its steeple  the sky?"  Surely there was no mistaking* the  Reaissance steeple, and the dignified mass  that, crowning a ..'ommandin*? summit,  was clearly outlined against the sky. It  was certainly a. church, and more���a stone  church���which in a region of' frame buildings gave it great pre-eminence and  interest.  This is the land of the "Acadians," the  descendants of the peasantry who in 1755  were deported from Grand Vre to the  southern colonies, aud who, many years  after, when the troubles were over, returned, only to find the lovely Grand Pre  region fully occupied by newcomers. Sadly they turned their course to the sterile  shores of St. Mary's bay, where they settled, midway between Yarmouth and  Digby, Nova Scotia.  Though comprising the bulk of the  population of the region, here and there  may be found families of New England  origin, with their peculiarities of dialect  and custom.  Little villages of frame cottages line the  road i'or twenty miles���very small, humble homes, indicating the narrowest mar:  gin of living, hue neat, often bright with  flowering .plants which fill windows and"  doorways, aud quite -free from au air ot  poverty. It was, however,, a strange  neighborhood for a large stone church!  As a long ascent was  before us, we dis-  'mounted,  trundling'our cycles.   Presently we overtook a farmer riding in his cart,,  "r-drawn by.asmall ox between the" shafts,  which were secured to its head by a rope  bound and fastened to the horns,-a device,  which  every true Nova Scotian declares  .  to be the only humane and   efficient way  - of attaching beast to-cart.     .     *  Such incidental acquaintances usually  afford'opport unities for securing information, and often entertainment; no wise  person will miss them. We hastened to  the social feast.  "That seems to be a fine church up on  the-hill."  "Yis; I guess it's about the finest church  in Nova Scotia."  "Well, that's surprising. The people  don't seem wealthy."  "No,   they  ain't.   1 don't suppose the  people in any part of the province have to  work so durned. hard  for a living; but  ..the,  church,   that's  all   owing to lather  Cote."' -.   '   " >    *'   ���     " "  "^And who is father Gpte?"  '���Oh, he's .Out5' priest. He's a rhighty  ^knoAviug^man.=^He=vvas=at-Ool!ege at-Que-  btic, and learned all they r?oitld teach in  every line: and then I've heerd lie studied  abroad. He's a great than, anyhow, father  Cote is. Why, he planned the church and  built it, top!"  "Before he came here we were a-going  to get up some sort.of a cheap church, and  i*aise���;u_otiey lor it by picuics and fairs,  lots of 'em ; but when he came he just put  his foot down, father Gpte did, put it  down real hard, too, iind said : "We won't  dishonour Godr_> cause in that way. We'll  \yprk, afld we'll bcig for it first, .aud let  people everywhere that will have a chance  to give to thi. Lord's house; You, Franqois-*,  go o-i'-jbo' the fishing villages and see what  you can get; and ypu, Aiphonse, go over  to the mines and get what you can there."  And so he set one and another to work,  and worked himself the hardest of. auy,  until nine thousand dollars were raised !  Nine thousand dollars ! Just think of ait  ���wasn't that a monstrous sum ?, All the  rest was labor aud material that our folks  gave.  "Then he just bossed everything all the  ���way through. Why, he'd take the commonest sort of a man, and in a little while  break him in so he could do anything he  wanted of him. Yis, sir, and he didn't  mind time and again taking off his coat  and working with the rest of us; there  wasn't anything stuck up about him.  But wasu't he wise, though?  "In the beginning, when they were set  to build of wood, he said: '1 see you've  got lots of stone ou your land. It's very  bad for the farms, you ought to get rid  of it.',  " 'But what can we do with 'em? No-  boby don't want 'em, as far as ever we've  heerd.'  " 'Haul them all over to the church  grounds; they will be out of your way  there, and I can dispose of them.'  "So the people cleared up their farms,  and great piles of stone rose on the  church grounds, until everybody began to  be frightened, and were saying: 'What  will he do with 'em? . What will he do  with 'em ? Alas! alas ! it's ruining the  place !'  "Then he began to say :    'What a pity  Are   now  prepared   to issue  Drafts and Letters of Credit on  Dawson City, Yukon District-  not to build a stone church, now the stone  is all here!'  " 'Before long we all saw how kuowin'  he was. He'd got our farms cleared of  stone so we got bigger crops, and at the  same time he'd got all the stone right  handy for a new church���and, of all  things, a stone church !  "More and more the people were glad  to work under such a man ; and they did  it with a will. Aud just think���he planned  it all, even the great trusses that carry  the roof ! The carpenters were afraid  they wouldn't hold it up, and the whole  business would be down ou the top of  their heads ; they'd never seen anything  like 'em. But he said : 'I'll be responsible ;  go ahead.' And they stood as solid as a  rock!   Oh, he's a wonderful man !"  "I suppose the people are very proud of  their church?"  "Yis, they love that church, they've put  so much hard work into it."  "Does father Cote get much time to look  after his people, aud know them ?" ..  "Tell ye he does. There are seven or  eight hundred of us, and he even knows  the names of all our children. Seems as  though he's always looking out in some  way for the good of the families, big and  little."  We now approached the church, which  we were curious to investigate, and,- bidding goodbye to the enthusiastic and sociable farmer, we made our way to the interesting building.  It was a large structure of the native  grey stone, very simple aud plain in its  exterior appearance, but solid and dignified.   .  Its frout doors being locked, we proceeded to the rear, where we found men  and teams preparing the foundations for  a considerable annex to the main building.  Presently one seemed to be directing  their efforts���a dignified and very courteous man���stepped forward and invited  us into the church. Accepting his guidance, we entered what proved to be a remarkably effective building, capable of  accommodating some eight hundred or a  thousand people, and possessing in an unusual degree qualities not ofteu found in  conjunction���dignity and cheerfulness.  Us walls, built of the rough stone.that  came from the farms, as well as by very  common labor had re.quiied unusual thickness tor stability,-and this gave deep interior jumbs (some two or three ��� ieet)\to  the lolty windows. It was. surprising'how  greatly this expression, of mass and  strength contributed a feeling of grandeur  to the whole interior.. .   *    V    *.  A handsome barrel ceiling crowned the  .nave, its form and lightness contrasting  agreeably with the plain, sturdy walls.  The style was in the manner of the French  Kenaissance, simply treated; the coloring  was light, relieved sparingly, by gilding.  . The altar, which arose nearly to the  height of the lofty ceiling, was the culminating point,of effect, and while _no  costly materials orraro workmanship en.  tered into its composition, it was very impressive, partly from proportion . and  mass,,aud in no small degree from the  manner in which it was lighted���in part  by concealed windows whose sole purpose  was to give emphasis to some portions of  the picturesque structure.  As we remained in the church we ielfc  more and more its charm, and were led to  make inquiries of our guide (who proved  to be'fatner Cote himself) as to the history  of this building,* which wpuld" in most  places have,(-Osb, thirty or forty thousand  dollars.  j-ki_jjiinj3 thpiysaM-JlQU-i_gs_jjl money, her  infprmed us, hadrbeen raised and expended;,beyond that all had been accomplished  by ���t_ie labor of the p-trish,, which,.had  bfee'n most freely and generously given.  "Why," stud he, "each man noVy gives  twenty days' work iu the year for the  church and its needs !"  On leaving we accepted an invitation to  rest a while in his study���a sunny room  in the plain little manse hard by. ���This.  gave .opportunity for further inquiry:, regard i tig the details of the work, especially  how it was1 possible that tlitSlGast* fertile  region of Nova ScStia c.oiifd buifd the  finest chtirchPf all tlie country districts.  "More than anything else," he replied.  "I think it is because the people have  taken it up as a matter of service to God.  That has ennobled the whole thing���the  made self-denial sweet, has made has  work the great desire of the hearts.  "A very usual way here, if akichurch is  to be built���I do not kuow if it is so in the  States���is to have a succession of fairs and  festivals, and to raise the most of the  money, I have never believed in it. In  many country places where the fairs continue several days there is a great deal of  intemperance, and it has seemed as  though the evil quite outbalanced the  good. But, aside from th.it I do believe  it is the right way to obtain money for  the Lord's service. So I have told my  people that they must work for the  Lord's house; save for it; give and beg  for it; they must do it as au offering to  Him, and lie would forward the undertaking, own it, and bless the House to  them. They have done so, and He has  favored them beyond all expectation.  More than that, their efforts have made  them a very different people; they love  and respect their religion more, are more  faithful and devoted. Is it not always  true that that which we struggle and  deny ourselves for, gains imperceptibly a  strong hold upon our* hearts ? It is, I am  sure, a great mistake to eliminate self-  denial from God's service; we lose the best  means of developing Christian character."

While the large, substantial church was  tbe conspicuous symbol of what had been  accomplished, of infinitely greater value  was the change wrought in the community ; the training in giving and doing "as  unto the Lord."  Bidding good-by to our new friend, we  passed around the church to get bur  bicycles, and in so doing met one of the  carpenters who was working out his share  of labor on the annex.  "You give very much to the church,"  we said.  "Yes, we have all of us given a good  deal, right straight along, for the last six  or seven years ; but one thing J am certain  of���and I've thought it over a good deal���  we are each one of us today every bit as  well oft' in pocket as weshould have been  if we had not given at all. Not a man,  woman, or child.is anything poorer for  whit they have done! I know that's so."  Was it strange that in our dreams there  and in our waking since, a personality of  great dignity arid force has been much  before ih; that of one who with fine  talents and endowments, gladly accepted  a lowly lot, buried himself in its duties  and interests, and upon high principles  wrought a noble work?  African Eailroads.  It is expected that within the next ten  years Africa will have not only completed  the railroad from Cario to the Cape,_but  that there will be two or three cross-railroads.   The North road is completed to  Omdiirman and the South road has crept  up to Fort Salisbury.   A railroad from  Beira on the east coast to Port Salisbury  is almost completed; the Uganda road in  British  East Africa is  under way.  and  a   third road   to   run   west   from Zanzibar.   Old   Kruger   is   the   only obstacle  in   the way of the  road  from   Delagoa  bay to the Cape Town Buluwayo road.  Great  Britain   is   repeating  in    Africa  what our railroad men did between 1885  .and 1890 in our great west.   It was in our  country that the fact was discovered that  there is no other agent to compare with  the locomotive in the settlement of-a new  country.   When it raises its voice in the  wilderness announcing the coming of an  epoch; when it leads the way, then wild  beast and  wild man alike flee before it;  the frontier itself vanished and alongits  steel trail," on unsoiled sandals, civilization  follows, and with all their stately accompaniments peace and industry begin  to  build their temples.  Africa waited a long  time for the working of the great miracle,  but at last it is being performed, and with  a swiftness,  too,  which  makes the lion  tremble in his lair and the slave-hunter  quake as the thunder of the tread of the  new evangel shakes the earth.  m Tremont Hotel  We are now open and ready for business.

Dackfed*   -Briees tu  20 AND 2S WEST BAKER STRKKT, NELSON  imer  THE EMINENT PIANO MANUFACTURES  have been attaining1 enormous success recently with their new scale cabinet pianos. In Ontario and Quebec provinces especially, recently many  leading- families have purchased these high-grade pianofortes, in preference to those of any other Canadian maker. The trade associations which  the Messrs. Nbrdheimer have enjoyed for over fifty years in connection  with their representation, for the Dominion of Canada, of the world-,  renowned Steihway, Chiekering, and Dunham Pianos, have given the  house the true ideal as to what a strictly first-class musical instrument  should be. It is gratifying* to note the success that is now rewarding:  their efforts in the production of the upWg-ht pianos of their manufacture.  P. J.
