Victoria,April 11.—Captain McCallum,
a retired officer of the Indian army, died
today at his much at Col wood. It would
be hard to erowd more trouble into the
same period than this genial old gentleman experienced in his twenty years residence in Hritish Columbia, due to a .sublime eonlidenoe in liis own ability to read
character which made him an easy mark
for (.very designing person who could
scrape up an iicqunintaiuee witli him.
Captain McCalluin acquired I lis greatest
fame by buying a supposed petrified man,
dug up from the Happy Valley ranch and
put on exhibition in Victoria. McCallum
bought the man for $2500 with a. view
of making a sale to the British museum.
Hardly had he secured it when the local
customs authorities seized the*, stone for
undervaluation, tbe San Francisco sharpers who sold it having entered it a few
weeks before, and buried it at the spot
Avhere the captain supposed it had lain
for centuries. McCalluin was later involved in the cause eelebre of Gray <fc
MoCalluin over the Ophir Bedrock Flume
Mining Company, and in much kindred
litigation was -wasted the modest competence with which he came to this province.

European News in Brief.
Lord Strathcona and Mount Royal,
Canadian high commissioner, is at present visiting Knebworth in Hertfordshire.
The court of revision which Avill be
held on June 1st, for the purpose of re-
A'ising the assessment roll as prepared by
J. K. Strachan, city assessor, Avill probably
be the most liA-ely court of its kind eA-er'
held in Nelson.
This   year   it   Avould   seem   that  the
attempt has been made  to  make  people
rich by increasing  the  assessed   value of
their property, and   incidentally  rendering them liable for increased  taxes, even
should the rate struck by the council this
year be as Ioav as   that  of  the  previous
year,    lb may be that the  champions of
the present city council will "point Avith
pride " to the big advance in the assessed
Aaluejof Nelson realty as an   evidence of
the statecraft of  the  green  hands  avIio
make up the council, but it may also happen that the patient taxpayer ••will A'ieAV
Avith alarm"  the  possibilities  Avhieh   his
increased assessment holds for  increased
tiixes and for additional debenture debts.
As a rule the men who have made real
estate investments in  Nelson  look  upon
the same as  likely to  produce a  profit
through advancing A-alue's, but  it  is- not
probable that there is a sane man in Nelson   who  Avill  gravely assert   tliat tlie
average   adAance  in  real  estate values
throughout the entire city has  exceeded
forty-five per ceiit over tiic values of the
previous year.   ' Y"et this is Avlnit the city
assessor's roll means if it means anything..
For the year 1898 the same  assessor returned the A-alue of the realty in tlie city
at   $800,870,   and   this   year   the  same
property is given a A*a I nation of $1,17] ,090.
The  explanation  offered  by. the city
assessor is that an amendment lias beeu-
made to the Municipal Clauses Act Avhieh
recites that for the purposes of taxation
the land within the city shall be assessed
tit its actual   cash   value.    Formerly the .
land was required to  be assessed at the
actual A-alue at  Avhieh   it  Avould  be appraised in payment of a  just  debt by a
solvent  debtor.     This  difference  in the
reading of Section 113 of the Municipal
Act. according to the  A'ieAvs  of the  city
assessor, taken in conjunction Avith such
advance as there has beeu in  real estate
\ralues, accounts for an increase of forty-
five per cent in the assessed A-alue of real
estate'for 1S99 over 1898.
As an illustration of the advance Avhich-
has been made in the assessment of Baker
street property it may be mentioned that,
the lot on the nortlnvest corner of Baker
and Ward streets, Avhieh has a fifty-foot
frontage on Baker street, OAvi.ed by
Harold Scions, is assessed this year tit
$10,000. ' Last year. the same property
Avas assessed at $6000. The lot on the
soutliAvest corner of the same streets,
Avhieh-"*i_as * a * thirty-foot-'frontage on -."
Baker street, .and for Avhieh the Bank of
Montreal was reported' to have paid
'$10,000,* is assessed at $7000.. Taken
in connection with ''this the lot on the
northeast corner of Baker and Josephine
streets, which has a 50-foot frontage on
Baker street, and Avhieh .the Bank of
Montreal refused to take at a lowerfigure
than that paid for the Baker and Ward
corner, is this year assessed at $7500, or
aii ad\'ancc of $500 oA-er the corner chosen
by the bank.
Another property Avhieh has come in
for a good boost is the Clements & Hillyer lot on the north Avest corner of Baker

As an illustra-  . fciou: Suppose a Nelson wholesaleinerehant  brings in a carload of canned goods from  Toronto, on Avhieh he pays a freight rate  of $1.50 per hundred,  and  distributes it  froiii Kelson  in  small   lots   to retailers  throughout Kootenay, they paying the  local rate of 35  celits a'hundred.    The  raihvay 'Companies   Avould receive $1.85  a  hundred  for  hauling   the ������ freight an  average distance of 2800 miles.    The Vancouver wholesale merchant brings in the  same class of goods from the same place,  on which.be pays 90 cents a hundred, and  distributes them in small lots to points in  Kootenay at a rate of 95 cents a hundred.  The railroads got  $1.85  a hundred ancl  haul the freight on an average 3G00 miles.  To the average mind this does not seem  to be tlie A\*ay to make  money.    It certainly costs something to haul the freight  the extra 800 "miles.   It wouhl be useless  The attempt made to change the city  account from the Bank of Montreal to  the Bank of Halifax Avas ill-adA'ised and  smacked a little of sharp practice. . The  city has' had fair treatment--from the  Bank of Montreal, and no good reason  could be advanced for making the change.  Business men do not change their  accounts from one bank to another without reason; no more should a city. The  debentures issued by tho city arc payable  at the Bank of Montreal, and as long as  the city receives fair treatment, the city  -account should be kept there. The Tribune is-of opinion that the city council  did not make* the change legally at its  meeting on Monday night, hence there  Avill be no change. Mayor Neelands made  a mistake in not counting all the members of the council present as voting;  had he done so, the resolution making  the change Avould have fallen, for three is  not a majority of seveji.

Cape Colony is preparing for another  general election, -consequent on the passage of the bill for the redistribution of  seats brought forward by the Sehreiner  government. Candidates are stumping  the country, and both sides in politics,  the Progressives or Illiodesites and the  Afrikander Bond, are putting forward all  their strength to assure success.  Recent developments in   South Africa  have brought new questions to the surface  and   raised   new issues.    Mr.   liof-  meyr, the leader of the Afrikander party  in the Cape  Colony, in a speech he made  lately indicated considerable uncertainty  as   to   the  outlook   in   the  colony.    The  Afrikanders, he protested, were thoroughly loyal  to the British crown, but they  "wore strenuously opposed to millionaires  domineering over the colony.    The immediate outlook,  he believed to  be as critical as   the late past; and   in the event of  the elections going against the Bond,-the  future would become darker still.    This  speech made a considerable sensation and  recalled that made by Mr. To  Water at  the time  of the   last general election, in  which   he  said  that   the  affirmation  of  British  supremacy,   inserted by  sir Gordon Sprigg,  in the  platform of the gov-  ' eminent  was   wicked.-   ill-advised,   mis-  chievious  and   shameful,  and   he   chal-  langed  any one to assert that the'Bond  desired  other than   British   supremacy.  But they wished to retain -what they enjoyed, for they had privileges  under re-  _ sponsible government, ' and   would,   not  _. brook interference from Downing street.  Mr.  To   Water  is  a   member   of   Mr.  Schroiner's  cabinet and  has  not   made  any  public; change  in the  views he expressed   in August   of   last '.year.    The  "Bond members." therefore, are going into  the  campaign with  a very - well-defined  policy., which is. loyalty, to the British  crown,  but no Rhodes domination.    The  result of the-coining elections ha ve, therefore, quite as much as imperial as a colonial interest.  As regards the two republics, a commission nominated by the Transvaal and  Orange Free State is studying the administrative systems of each with the object  ofp.bringing them into hai'iuony, and it is,  �� geuei-nUy understood tliat IvheneVer tlie  ppiitj(.��.l situation" permits - of it the two  stated will federate under ope gQvern-  ���tnent.

Great liabilities are being incurred for the construction of railways without eorresponding development of population and trade, and  English capital is not flowing into the  country in the way expected. It is hoped  tluit Mr. B-hodes's mission to Europe may  have some substantial results, otherwise  tho outlook will not be brilliant.  "Crammed" Scholars Make a Poor Showing."  Last month Mrs. Lew Wallace, wife of  tlie celebrated author of "Ben Hur," had  a. fine article in one of the leading American Magazines ou the question of mind-  stuffing versus rational education. She  most severely arraigned the craze for increase of the subjects taught, and painted a rattier fearsome picture of what tlie  over-taught children Avere-coming to.. It*  is an undisputed fact that the "crammed"  scholar makes a miserable showing'in'the  business and Avorking world as compared  with the plainly educated boy or girl,  who docs not know so many things passably  wcsll but  a   few   thoroughly.    It   is  not necessary to advocate a return to the  idyllic  simplicity of an  age which found  "readin', 'ritin', an' 'rithmetic" sufficient  for all   the requirements  of the time���it  is always  best "to avoid extremes in any  direction, even in reforming an abuse-  but that some radical treatment is called  for  in "the settlement of the education  question, as we know it in this province,  is  quite    evident.      Children   are' now  taught a. number of  things  that   will  never be of the slightest use to them; the  selection  of the  subjects  here, as elsewhere, is  not Avise; the juvenile mind is  not  only  over-burdened,  it   is  actually  paralyzed with the heterogeneous mass of  general   knowledge that  a mistaken system  attempts to crowd into it.    Again,  the present system gives the teacher no  chance'to do first-class work, he or she  cannot hope to turn out from their classrooms boys and girls avIio are to be described as clear-headed, efficient workers,  able for any of the duties of the office or  the store.    On the contrary, the children  now leaving the schools of America'have  had  tlieir minds  muddled; they know a  great deal they Avould be much better not  to knoAV, because it is mere useless lumber, hampering their minds and obscuring the natural common sense with which  they have beeu gifted.  THE   PEOPOSED   GEORGIAN   BAY  .. Ship Canal.  The idea of connecting Montreal with  the upper great lakes by means of a canal  is again urgently advocated by McLeod  Stewart, a son of the Canadian politician  by whom the scheme Avas first brought  forward some fifty years ago. The proposed canal Avould run from the mouth  of the French river at the northern end  of Georgian Bay, the, northeastern angle  of Lake Huron, to 'Montreal on the St.  Lawrence by a line as nearly straight as  any stretch of inland navigation can bo  expected .to follow. . Jts ad vocates maintain not only that it would shorten the  distance between Chicago and Liverpool  materially and do away with the delay  and expense incident tor transshipments,  but also that, OAving to .the configuration  oi the country traversed, it could be constructed at a relatively small cost. Of  these assertions the former at all cA*onts  seems to be borne out by facts. The distance between Georgian Bayand -Montreal is -130 miles; the length of the  Avhole route from Chicago to Liverpool  by way of the projected canal avouIcI be  3780 miles, while by way of Buffalo, the  Erie canal' and Hudson river to New  York, and thence to Liverpool, the distance is -149.) miles, or via the Welland  and St. Lawrence canals 41-IS miles.  Now, as regards the cost of construction. It appears a from the report^of the  surveyo'i's. nuide lialfaf een^ury ago!." jjlifij.  of the 13Q miles betweeii GleOi:giari Bay  arid Montre.il only "d(hpi\i fifty-eight  would need to be canalized. The rest Of  the Avaterway is provided by nature in  theforj-i^of a__clluiin-_-0��Jakes^ancl=idArers  The French river,itself is a Series of small  connected lakes, after which, as you proceed eastward, eoiiles lake Nipissiiig,  forty miles in length; next are encountered Trout Lake, Turtle Lake, Talon  Lake, Aiguilles Lake aiid Chant Lake.  The confluence of tlie Mattawa'n and  Ottawa rivers is then, reached, and tlie  latter watervvay is followed to its junction with the St. LaAVreiice. It Was  doubtless owing to the fact, that so little  portage was required oil this routethat  Chitmplain Avas led to adopt it in 1015 on  his way to the great inland seas of the  continent; for.the same reason it formed  for many years the principal channel for  carrying on the business of the Hudson's  Bay Company.  Tlie cost originally computed by goA'ernment engineers was $25,000,000, but  this Avas for a canal only ten feet deep  and fromolOO to sixty feet Avide. It remains to be seen how -much, this figure  Avould have to be increased for a canal  possessing depth and width enough to  admit vessels of the .modern type proceeding directly from Liverpool to .Chicago. As the present tendency of deep  sea cargo ships is toAvard enormoits  dimensions, beyond the possibility of accommodation, in canal locks, of Avhieh  there Avould be many on tlie proposed  route, it may be deemed wise to contemplate a single transshipment at Montreal  and to construct a canal of moderate size,  from fifteen to sixteen feet in depth, suit  able for lake steamers. The objection to  the projected waterway is the number of  locks tliat would be required. Even'  though the level of the summit lakes  should be loAVered,.as Ave are told it might  be, the highest point Of the canal Avould.  be (524 feet above. Montreal and eighty-  three feet above. Georgian. Bay. . There  are no mechanical obstacles, however,  that might not be surmounted,'provided  the canal be designed for vessels drawing  Wire Net Snow Sheds-  General McGlashan, of Truckee, Cali-  ifornia, has completed his test of substituting structures of Avire netting for the  wooden sheds, on the line of the Central  Pacific railroad across the Sierra suoav  belt, with satisfactory results, and Avill  submit to the Southern Pacific company  a proposition to adopt that method of  keeping their roadbeds clear of snow during the winter. The tests made shoAved  that scarcely any suoav sifted through  the interstices of the Avire netting during  the heaviest storm of this winter.. The  inventor claims that by the use of Avire  netting not only will the annual loss  from fire be averted, but its substitution  will enable tourists to obtain an unobstructed view of the "fine scenery Avhile  crossing the Sierras. The building of a  mile of wooden snoAvsheds  costs $78,000,  LUMBER  SHINGLES  and  tlieir  construction"  Avould be much cheaper.  of Avire netting  Advice and Suggestions.  Toronto Star;  Canadians living in the United States,  and approaching the United States government Avith advice ami suggestions for  changes in the republic's laws, would receive a scant hearing.
