MARCH 16, 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  LORD   WOLSELEY   REPLIES  DEFENDS   HIS   POLICY   AS  MANDER-IN-CHIEF.  COM-  Admits He Underestimated the Fighting Strength of Individual Boers.  Lansdowne in Rejoinder.  London, March 15.���The house of  lords was unusually crowded today  in anticipation of the reply of lord  Wolseley, the former commander-  in-chief, to the'criticism of the former war secretary, lord Lansdowne,  now secretary for foreign affairs.  Lord Wolseley in  his opening remarks said he regretted being compelled to discuss a personal matter.  But lie could not pass unchallenged  the severe comments of lord Lansdowne on the manner in which lie  had performed the duties of commander-in-chief. Lord Lansdowne's  personalities   had   evidently   been  premeditated.       His    indictments  were grave and it almost seemed  as if the personal attack had been  made in order  to  divert attention  from   tlie   question   at  issue   and  throw   upon    the    commander-in-  chief blame for mistakes  made by  tlie government.    Until  the recent  debate he had never had reason to  suppose that he did not possess the^  full confidence of lord Lansdowne  and tlie cabinet.  Early in 1900 circumstances occurred which left him "no alternative but to resign, which he did. If  he had not possessed the cabinet's  confidence that had been an-opportunity which might legitimately  have been used to appoint another  - commander-in-chief. Lord Wolseley then proceeded to refute the  specific charges launched by. lord  ���Lansdowne. He said he had made  every effort to improve" the auxiliary,forces. In February, 189G,'he  recommended that additional troops  be sent to South Africa and recommended strengthening . the -Natal  garrison and defensive occupation,  not of the.town of Ladysmith, but  of Paardesberg range, which was 25  miles in advance of Ladysmith. He  never had considered Ladysmith  and its surrounding hills to be  tenable. Lord Wolseley admitted  that in common' with all the other  authorities he had underestimated  the lighting power of the individual  Boer.  Three weeks before Mr. Kruger's  declaration of war he had urged  lord Lansdowne to send out an  army corps, a cavalry division and  five battalions tor the lines of communication, in addition to the ten  thousand troops already in South  Africa. Such a. comparatively  small number of troops employed  early-irn7tlie campaign had often  achieved results which five times  their number could not produce  Jater. The mobilization of this  force at that time would have produced a considerable effeet in South  -Africa. If the country had not  been prepared at the outbreak of  the war, ifc had not beeu because he  had not urged the gradual aud unostentatious reinforcement of the  forces.  Lord Wolseley concluded by saying : "I have said as little as possible consistently with justice to  myself. The noble marquis made  strong personal statements which  were not supported. I have made  my; reply, which is also' unsupported. I cannot, however,--leave  the matter thus. I feel I am amply  justified in moving that all the papers be laid on the table. "I am  prepared to prove by official documents all I have said."  Lord Lansdowne in replying said  he thought lord Wolseley had  hardly comprehended the purport  of .his former speech when he said  it had not been a personal attack  on himself (lord Lansdowne). After  thus breaking lord Lansdowne's  windows lord Wolseley could  hardly expect that there would not  be retaliation on his own conservatory.  Proceeding, lord Lansdowne  questioned the correctness of some  of lord Wolseley's statements. He  reminded the latter how after the  Glencoe disaster Wolseley had suggested that the British should fall  back on the Tugela river. If the  suggestion had been given earlier  it might have saved one of the  most untoward disasters of the  war. Lieutenant-general sir William-  Butler had written a private letter  to lord Wolseley suggesting that  40,000 men might be necessary for  the campaign. Lord Lansdowne  did not wish to excuse himself for  .underestimating the enemy, but  lord Wolseley should bear his full  share. Lord Wolseley had suggested, among other things, the  occupation of Delagoa bay and an  appeal to the colonies.  Lord Salisbury said he thought  it undesirable that all the papers  referring to the debate should be  circulated. He was not aware that  any personal charges had been made  against lord Wolseley.  Lord Roseberry enumerated lord  Lansdowne's charges- against lord  Wolsele^and said they were pergonal in,%|l5��|^����nent of the mass  CONFIDENT OF SURRENDER  BELIEVE DEWET AND DELAREY  WILL AGREE.  in-the-  A Warlike Attitude  London, March 15.���A question  in the house of commons in regard  to the dispatch from Tien-Tsin announcing friction between the Russians and British there elicited a  confirmation from lord George  Hamilton, the secretary of state for  India, who said Russia had claimed  the land in dispute by virtue of a  concession alleged to have been  granted" by China since the disturbances commenced. The authorities on the spot were dealing, witli  the matter. The government has  not sent special instructions, as  throughout the China operations  the British officers had shown a  spirit of excessive conciliation.  London, March 15.���A dispatch  received here from Tien-Tsin by  Reuter's Telegram Company from  chat city today at 3:20 p. m. says:  "The Russians are now entrenching  in the disputed territory. A company of the Hong Kong regiment,  with fixed bayonets, is in front,  while two companies of the Madras  Pioneers, under the command of  major Johnson, are held in reserve.  Both the Russians aud the British  are-waiting instructions from-their  governments."  Lake Steamer in Danger;  Racine, Wisconsin, March 15.��� ���  , Forty persons, 15 of whom are passengers, ;are 'in-great danger" on  board the Goodrich line steamer Indiana, which lost its rudder off  Northpoint, outside this port early  today. The steamer was within  100 feetNof the shore when she succeeded in getting a line aboard aud  was towed out. No further trouble  was apprehended. The anchor was  run out and for ^a time the vessel  rode the heavy sea. Soon, however, the anchor began to drag and  the steamer gradually drifted  southward under a strong gale  from the northeast. It is feared  that before nightfall the rocky shore  will be reached. Hundreds of people  have lined the shore south of this  port throughout the day and preparations to take off the passengers  and crew have been made.  Chicago. March. 15.���Officials of  the Goodrich line in this city say  "that'the^teaih^r^^tlantaris ready"  to assist the "Indiana in case that  vessel cannot manage to keep off  the rocks south of Racine. The  officials express entire confidence  in the safety of the vessel.  Printers Lose Their Lives.  Boston, March 15.���Three lives  were lost, nearly a dozen men were  more or less injured and many  thousands of dollars damage was  the result of a fire started in the  pressroom of the Daily Advertiser  and Record in the seventh granite  front building in Newspaper Row,  Washington street, tonight. The  dead are: James Richardson, sr.,  of Boston, proof reader; Judson  Gretfel, proof reader, of Cambridge;  Walter Luscomb, proof reader, of  Salem. Among the injured are:  Harry Holt, D. B. Farrel, Murphy,  Hubbart, and Duffy, compositors.  Four firemen were slightly cut and  bruised.  Steyn Is Irreconcilable, but  lowing Is too Small to  Reckoned With.

New York, March 15.���The feeling of confidence that terms of  peace with the Boers will be  arranged is increased, says a London dispatcli to the Tribune. The  argument which is heard among  them is based upon the natural inference that Delarey and Dewet  can saddle upon Botha the responsibility for the peace movement.  The only honor which remains for  the Boer generals, who have resisted  the resources of the British empire  for 18 months, is that of holding  out in the last ditch and being  drawn with reluctance into peace  negotiations. Dewet and Delarey  can now have the distinction of  being faithful to the end and yielding to an appeal from Botha to  abandon the hopeless conflict.  Military men are convinced that  the Boer conference will be held, to  take place this" week, if Dewet be  over the Vaal, as is now probable,  and that the Boer leaders will begin by protesting against surrender  and end. by accepting the terms  offered by lord Kitchener and sir  Alfred Milner after holding Botha  accountable for the final collapse of  their cause.  President Steyn remains in arms  and is probably tho. most irreconcilable among the Boer leaders, but  the Transvaal Dutch, in the .person  of Botha, have signaled-for a truce,  and. .their allies from the Orange  Free State are no longer in a position to insist uponjfightingm.the  last "ditch "to thebitter endi" ".*" " ** .  It is stated that the delay in concluding.the negotiation with Botha  has been caused by. some friction  between, lord Kitchener; sir Alfred  Milner and the home government.  It is now reported that as the basis  of the settlement of the South African question, the Rand mines  shall ultimately bear the cost of the  rebuilding of the Boer farm houses  and the restocking of the farms,  and the feeling is growing that if  lord Kitchener had been left to  settle the terms himself matters  would have been arranged several  days ago. The British commander  has throughout been anxious to  grant the Boers more liberal terms  than the imperial authorities at  home cared to sanction.  Dewet's Mental Condition.  Americans to Evacuate.  Washington, March 15.���An order was sent to general Chaffee  today for the evacuation of China  by. American troops, leaving only a  legation guard of 150 men. The  troops will be removed from China  by the last of April. It was said at  the war department that this  clears up the Chinese situation so  far as the war department is concerned, as the protection of the legation can in no sense be taken as  occupation of Chinese territory and  the guard cannot be used for any  other purpose.  London, March 15.���Sir Edward  Saunders, president of the Odonto-  logical Society and dentist to king  Edward aud queen Alexandra, is  dead.  Bloemfontein, March 15.���Prisoners who have lately been released  by general Dewet say they think  he is a mad man. They aver that,  the terrible fatigues that he has  undergone, his anxieties and the intensity of his feelings have unhinged his mind. . Apart from this  view qf general Dewet's mental  state, some of his peculiarities are  that he rarely sleeps within the  bounds of his camp. He seeks rest  outside withoa few trusted followers. Thus the orderlies of his subordinate commanders are frequently  unable to find him to receive orders.  His secrecy is extreme. He absolutely imparts his plans to no one.  He repudiates the peace negotiations whieh are going on. He has  declared openly to the men under  him that no terms outside independence will satisfy him. A recent  utterance attributed to him is that  after the British he hates the  Transvaalers. His whereabouts for  the last two or three,days are unknown, nor is it known whether  president Steyn is with him.  Meeting of Generals.  London, March 16.���According to  a dispatch to the Times dated  March 15th from Kaalspruit, it is  reported there that generals Botha,  Delarey and Dewet will meet on  March 18th to discuss the situation.  Fatal Row at Denver.  Denver, March 15.���Jimmy Coo-  gan, a local lightweight pugilist,  was shot through the head and instantly killed by Frank Salter, better known as "Plunk" Salter, at  1:35 this morning in a saloon at  Nineteenth and Market streets. According to witnesses, Coogan first  London Underground Railways.  Liverpool,, March 15.���A number  of reporters awaited the arrival today of the White Star steamer  Teutonic from Ne\> York, in order  to interview Charles T. Yerkes on  the object of his-raission and to ascertain his plans in regard to the  underground "railroads and street  railways. To a representative of  the Associated Press Mr. Yerkes  said:  "I have come to England to look  after the work I - have undertaken  here, namely, the Charing Cross &  Hempstead railway. That is my  sole mission. I do'not know how  England will take to American  methods, but it strikes me there is  a great field in London. Our railway will run underground to a  point several miles beyond Hempstead Heath. Thence we propose  to run an extension trolley line  seven miles further."  Accompanying Mr. Yerkes were  J. W. Chapman, electrical engineer,'  associated with Mr. Yerkes for the  past seven years, and AViliiam  Clark, foreign manager of the General Electric Company. Mr. Yerkes  will return to New-York from Cherbourg early in April.  ACTIVITY AT THE BOUNDARY  PROVINCE  AND   DOMINION  CHINESE  CAPTURED  THE LINE.  CROSSING  British Columbia Will Have Mineral  Exhibit at Toronto Fair���Vancouver Jottings, Etc-  Nelson Citizen's Views.  E. Ferguson of this- city has just  returned from a successful business  trip to the Boundary camps. He  was greatly, impressed by the activity with which mining is carried  on there at present. Nearly every  property is being developed steadily  and an immense output shipped  to tlie smelters daily, which are being operated to their full capacity."  Mr.-Ferguson stated that-as soon'  as the treating accommodations are  greater.the mine owners.and con-  trplling^companiesL irvtend- _ doing,  ��� more extensive development work.  Rossland, March 15.���For some  time past it has beeu suspected by  the customs authorities at North-  port    that    Chinese    were   coming    into -Washington    viai; the  road which leads from Rossland to  Northport.   The   customs authorities conferred with A. A.  Patterson, the Canadian customs officer at  Sheep's   creek   station,    which    is  located a short distance north of  the   international   boundary   line.  Mr. Patterson reported that he had  seen quite a number ' of .Chinese in  that vicinity recently and advised  the American, inspectors to secret  themselves.just south of the line in  some bushes and that they would  be certain to catch some contraband  Chinese.   On Thursday night   W.  H. Hutchinson, inspector of customs  at Northport, and colonel Walker,  Chinese inspector from Seattle, hid"  themselves in a place shown them  by Mr. Patterson.   They went there  early   in  the evening and  as the  night was cold the vigil was far  from comfortable.  Shortly after midnight four  figures appeared through the darkness and after glancing furtively  around stepped gingerly from Canadian to American soil. - They had  only taken a dozen or so steps in  American - territory when Mr.  Hutchinson and colonel Walker  stepped put from their hiding place  and told the Mongols to throw -up  their hands.

In running the  road it is proposed to reach all the  mines of that section, among which  are the Brooklyn, Stemwinder, Ironsides and Knob Hill. It is also intended that the line shall be run to  Deadwood and Whito.'s Camp, whicli  are situated some distance on, and  the : road may probably be built  jfcpJ2holt.=IfcJsJ;heJntention=of=the=  company to use the road principally  for'- the hauling of ores to the  different smelters.  Another matter also forcibly impressed itself on Mr. Ferguson. He  said that there were, two survey  parties stationed one at the east  and the other some distance to the  west of Cascade. They are laying  out the work in connection with  the proposed V. V. & E. railroad.  Although the original" company's  charter has been lost the people of  that district are of the opinion that  this is being done so as to have the  charter renewed.  After Charles Clark.  Anaconda, Montana, March 15.���  A special to tho Staudard from  Butte says: The police officials  made public today the details of an  attempt to blackmail; Charles W.  Clark, son of senator ^W. A. Clark,  out of $5000. Mr. Clark' a few days  ago received a letter directing him  to send the money in small bills to  "Wydz," Butte postoffice. The letter was turned over to the post-  office' authorities and the police.  The general delivery window was  watched for several days and finally a small boy called for a package  addressed "Wyoz." He was arrested and said a masked man had  given him 25 cents to call for the  package.. He proved his innocent  complicity. The blackmailer is  still at large.  Millionaire's Death.

Mineral Exhibit at Toronto.  Victoria, March 15.���It has been  practically decided that the province would be represented by a  mineral exhibit at the Toronto exhibition this year. The minister of  mines is impressed with the special  advertising medium which the  Toronto fair would be this year  owing to its proximity to Buffalo  and the large number of visitors  who would be sure to attend the  "frtirr^ItTias-been suggested-that"  the exhibit should be shown at  both places, his recent visit to New  York state having convinced him  that investors in this province in  the near future will be from south  of the .international boundary  rather than from England.  Captain Tatlow has a motion on  the order paper of the legislature  asking the government and house  to affirm the principle that a subsidy should be granted to encourage the ship building industry in  this province.

Toronto, March 15.���Experts.at  the university have decided  that the fish sent by the  fishery department some days  ago, whicli was taken from  Lake Simcoe, is a whitefish of the  Labrador variety, but how it got to  Lake Simcoe is a question which  puzzles all the authorities.  Big Slide on Great Northern  Kauspkij,, March 11.���A landslide of considerable extent and im-  portanceoccurred-this^aftei'noon-at-  a point along the Kootenai river  about 19 miles west of Troy and  near a statiou called Katka, where  the railroad hugs the side of the  mountain and overlooks the  river. It is a most hazardous  place, probably the most unstable along the entire line of  the Great Northern, and a great  deal of trouble has been experienced at that point since the road  was built. About 200 feet oi" track  was buried by the slide. The east  bound passenger train No. L was  west of Katka when the slide occurred aud is now tied up at Bonner's Ferry, where it will, probably  lie twelve hoars, the extent of the  slide making it improbable that the  track   -will   be  open  in  less  time.  Superintendent Kennedy ordered  out the wrecking train. All the  available workmen along the route  were gathered up and orders were  given to bring a train of 150 Japs  from this point. The latter order  was revoked, enough men on the  west end joining forces Avith  those from the east end to  proceed Svith the work. Four  years ago at or near that point a  slide occurred which tied up the  track for four days and again last  year when a locomotive went over  tho grade 200 feet down in the  river.           Bubonic Plague Cases.  Cape Town, March 15.���Eleven  fresh cases of bubonic plague, including one European victim, were  officially reported today. Iu consequence of the removal of the Kaffirs  to a reservation outside the city as  a plague precaution, the Malays  held a mass meeting today and resolved to resist eviction by force if  necessary. Several thousands are  now here.  New York, March rl5.��� Andrew-  Carnegie, who, since retiring as   au  ' active figure in the steel world has  been able to devote"his time exclusively   to   his   other   passion,  the  founding of libraries, has made his -  departure for Europe this spring  memorable by the largest offer  of  that kind ever advanced. "If New  York   will   provide the sites and -  maintenance, he has  promised to  give $5,200,000 to establish sixty-  five branch   libraries in  this city.  The offer was made in a letter to  Dr. John   S. Billings,  director of  the New York public library, last"  Tuesday.'   The correspondence in  connection with   the   matter was  made public  tonight.' Mr.  Carnegie's letter follows: ^  New York, March  12fch,  1901.���  Dr. John S. Billings, Director New  York Public Librai y:     Our. conference  upon   the   needs  of   Greater  New York for branch  libraries  to  reach the masses of the people  in  every  district has convinced me of  the wisdom of your plans.     Sixt y-  five branches strikes one at first as  a very large order,  but as other  cities have found ono necessary for  every sixty or seventy thousand of  population the number is not excessive.     You estimate the average-  cost- of these libraries at $S0,00O  each, being $5,200,000 for all.    if  New- York   will- furnish   sites-for  -  these branches for the special bene-'  fit of the masses of, the .people, as it -  has..been   done   for-the- central,  'library,,, and   also agree   ih satis- ,  factory form to provide for  their  maintenance   as   built,    J    should  esteem it a rare privilege to be per-.,'  mitted  to   furnish   the  money as  needed    for ' the   buildings,    say  $5,200,000.    Sixty-five   libraries  at  one   stroke   probably   breaks  the  record, but this is  the  day  of  big  operations and New York is soon to  be the biggest of cities.  (Signed) Andrew Carnegie.

London, March 15.���During the '  debate on the army estimates  in the house of commons today  lieutenant-colonel Arthur Hamilton  Lee, Conservative, who was British  military attache with the United  States army during the Spanish-  American   war   and   subsequently   ^was military attache with tlie British embassy in Washington, said  the American recruits in physique  and intelligence were superior "to  any other troops in the world. lie  pointed out that the American  term of service was only three years  with an option of re-enlistment, of  whieh advantage is usually taken.

Victoria is not  - a very large city, yet it has been  ��� estimated that, aside from the new;  high school,  and  taking  into con-  ��� sideration the government grant of  ' $13 per capita, Victoria will this  ; year   be   called   upon   to   furnish  $33,-100 for educational purposes.  TiiERH is nothing like unanimity  ' among tlie board of trade delegates  . who are now at the provincial capi-  ' tai boosting for the scheme of the  i Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company  | and the Hill railway and smelter  I trusts to corner the fuel supply of  ! the mining districts.    Patriotism is  ��� the only influence which is lacking  ; in the delegation.  When the United States lead and  smelter trust will pay Mexican competitors $47,000,000 for a0 plant  which   is   not   worth   more   than  ��� $22,000,000,    iu    order   to   perfect  .��� their corner on the lead market, it  ��� may be taken for granted that the  ._ trust does  not invade  new territories for the benefit of its health.  ; In Mexico it will dominate the situ-  ��� ation by purchase. In British  v Columbia, should its railway ally  ' secure an entrance into the Fernie  ; coal fields, the trust will dominate  : the situation by starving smelting'  competition out with a fuel famine,  ��� a   much   cheaper  though   equally  ��� effective method.  husband may summon him before a  police magistrate, stipendiary magistrate, or two justices of the peace,  who, if satisfied that the husband  has neglected or refused to support  his wife, may order the payment of  such sum as, may be considered  necessary- for the wife's support,  not exceeding, however, the sum of  $20 per week. An enlarged meaning is given to the term "deserted,"  so that it will cover the cases of  women living apart from their husbands by reason of assaults or acts  of cruelty. Right of appeal is given  from the order of the magistrate or  justices, but the taking of such appeal does not stay the order. The  second bill provides for tho registration of maternity boarding  lnuses, for the care of infants by  the municipal corporation in which  the same are located, as well as  regulations governing the same in  the interests of the little unfortunates who comprise their inmates.  Tub American Smelting and Refining Company, which is tho corporate name for the great lead and  smelter trust, has won the first  round in the fight made by certain  shareholders against the issuance of  new stock for the purchase of the  Guggenheim's plant-in Mexico. The  bucking shareholders represent over  27,000 shares of smelting and refinery stock. They secured ah interim injunction restraining the  company from carrying out the  Guggenheim deal, but were refused  their application for a permanent  injunction. The only effect of. this,  however, is-the shifting of the fight  to a higher court. One of the arguments advanced by the minority  shareholders in the trust [was that  the plant which it was proposed to  purchase for $47,000,000 was not  worth more than $22,000,000.  Finance Minister Turner has  given out that there will be no  wobbling,.on the financial features  of the government's bill to amend  the School Act. The cities that are  interested in the respective powers  of the school boards and the city,  -councils, in connection with educational expenditures, will have an  opportunity- of presenting their  views; but no suggestions as to increased, grants to municipalities, or  reductions in the provincial revenue  tax, will be entertained. This year  the finance minister is going to fulfil a prediction which he has often  made, a.revenue growing by leaps  and bounds.  The present legislature is not  bound by the action of its predecessors in granting $1,320,000 in  subsidies to the promoters of the  Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern railway scheme. Big as this grant was  no bona fide attempt was made'to  earn it, and eventually, the bonus  was withdrawn. There was no repudiation in such action, and the  province owes much to the men  who withdrew it, since it can now  accept the offer of the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company to build  without provincial assistance the  same railroad which the holders of  the V., V. & E. charter demanded  $1,320,000 for building.  One of the admitted conditions  attached to the Hill purchase of  Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company's  stock is that Hill shall take delivery, of 0000 tons of coal per day.  It would be interesting to learn  how this condition will operate.  Can Mr. Hill demand his pound of  flesh as soon as he has direct railway connection with the colliery?  If it is in his power to take all the  output up to 0000 tons per day,  and the present output of the colliery is 1500 tons, how long will it  be before the Crow's Nest Pass Coal  Company, can meet the demands of  the Canadian smelters?  Lawyer. McPhillips is going in  [ strong for domestic legislation this  session. He has one bill before the-  house which provides for the maintenance of wives deserted by their  husbands, and another to regulate  ; maternity boarding houses ��� and for-  the protection of infant children;  The first bill provides that any  ���married woman  deserted   by  her-  When the advocates of the Hill  charter are talking glibly about the  oppressive rates charged by the  Canadian Pacific Railway Company,  they are careful never to cite the  company's rate for carriage of  matte from the British Columbia  smelters to the. refinery at Newark,  New Jersey. It is because the Canadian railway, in its efforts to encourage   home    smelting,    carries i,  matte to the seaboard at a lower  rate than it carries cheap commodities, such as cement, from the seaboard to Kootenay.  Will Buck the Big Traat.  Western Mining Journal.  New York advices says that Mr.  H. II. Rogers says that there was  not a word of truth in the statement that there has been any settlement between the American  Smelting Co. and himself. He had  gone out of the company and would  stay out. Letters that have been  i eceived from Colorado give details  regarding the plans of important  interests in that state to enter into  competition in the smelting aud refining business with the American  Smelting & Refining Co.  The plans of the new .enterprise  aro stated to be well in hand and to  include the building of up-to-date  plants with the very talent in tho  smelting and refining business already secured to take charge of the  plants. Ample capital is reported  to be ready to back the project and  among those behind the new company are mentioned Herrinoldp,  David Moffat and half a dozen otln r  rich mine owners. The plans of  the new smelter interests include  the building near Denver of a big  plant of 2000 tons, 400 of this for  lead smelting and the rest for matte.  The Rocky Mountain * plant at  Florence of 000 tons aud the Golden  smelter now building, also of 000  tons, both copper mattes, will be included. -    "::   '     "       '���'  Mining Records.

South-central Canada has a great  river, the Saskatchewan, fed by  scores of streams, that descend the  eastern slopes of the Rocky mountains. Ib is navigable for 1200 miles  by light draft steamers. Every  year, after the wheat harvest, many  rafts are' seen lloating dowu the  Saskatchewan laden with Alberta  wheat. It is a cheap form of transport for a Commodity that requires  cheap freight rates. Perhaps the:  only rivers iu tho world on which  wheat rafts are a conspicuous feature are tlie Saskatchewan and the  Danube. Ten years ago there were  no wheat rafts on this river. There  were few farmers-in' the big,' dry'  province of Alberta to raise grain.  ���No railroad crossed it except the.  Canadian   Pacific.      The    hamlets  'were few and far between, but  cattle ranches were beginning to  spread over- the prairies. Farmers  who too'k butter, poultry and eggs  to Edmonton, ou the north fork of  the Saskatchewan, were often compelled to take them home again for  lack,of buyers. The pioneers wondered if prosperous days would ever  come. A railroad today connects  Calgary on the Canadian Pacific  with Edmonton far north. All along  ,the little streams that goto swell  the Saskatchewan ground lias been  broken and grain sown. ��� When  water is needed it- is carried from  the streams to the fields in irrigation ditches. The railroad-to Edmonton is lined.with farms, and  ^eattle^ranclies^streteh^awayr^par-^  tieularly in the south of the province.  The croakers used to say that Alberta could never amount to anything, for it was too far from the:  markets. But markets have sprung  up at the very doors of the province. The great gold and silver  l-egion of British Columbia, just  across the mountains, has attracted  many thousands of miners, new  railroads have brought them within easy reach of Alberta, and they  tkke their cattle and grain from  these prairies, which are their nearest sources of supply. In the Edmonton district last year about 2,-  500,000 bushels of wheat, oats and  barley were raised. 'Alberta sent  50,000 head of cattle into the mining districts of British Columbia  and even to the Yukon, besides shipping a large quantity east. Butter  and cheese factories are multiplying, the hamlets are becoming thriving centers of trade and: markets  are found for all agricultural products. With.its growing prosperity Alberta is still on the threshold  of its development. The wilderness  of ten years ago in this remote part  of Canada is today the scene of  thriving industry and is dotted  with thousands of homes. The full  flower of civilization is blooming in  the waste places of yesterday. It  is the history of our own prairie  land repeating itself on the other  side of the border.  Twentieth Century Printing.  Chicago Inter-Ocoan.  From Loudon comes the story to  the effect that electricity has invaded the field of tlie pressman and  promises to print without ink. For  a, long time it has beeu known that  a current of electricity passing  through a paper dampened with  certain chemicals would decompose  the chemicals and leave a mark or  stain at ono of the points of contact. Working on this theory, F.  Greene of London, has perfected a  combination of chemicals which  will show the same effects when  dry. He has found that the chemicals can be mixed with the paper,  pulp. The finished paper is said to  look like any ordinary unsensitized  paper," and, owing to the common  nature of the chemicals used, costs  little more than ordinary white  paper. Its sole difference is, apparently, that when touched with an  electric current it instantly yields  a dense black indelible mark.  It would naturally be expected  that elaborate new forms of printing presses would be required to  print with electricity on this new  paper. Such is not the case, however. Ordinary presses, divested of  the inking mechanism, can . do the  work. One wire of an electrie circuit is attached to the type or  stereotype plate and the other to  the cylinder that presses the paper  against'the type. When the current passes through every spot in  relief on the type touching the  paper prints its forms indelibly on  the paper, almost exactly as if ink  were used, except that there is no  dampening and no smearing. It is  said that half-tones, electrotypes,  wood cuts and all metal designs iu  relief print even more. perfectly  than at present. The results are  reported to resemble lithographs  closely. To add to the ease, and  cheapness of the work, the current  passing through an ordinary incandescent light is sufficient to do  all the printing on a large press.  It is further- reported that the  managers of several large London  dailies have become so interested in  i the development of this electrical  printing that "they have placed  their plants at the disposal of the  inventor for ' experiments. A recent . test on a Blackpool rotary  press, witnessed by a large company of scientists and printers, is  said to have been most successful.  The press was run. at the rate of  100 impressions a minute, or 0000  copies an hour, and the work was  declared perfect in every way. If  these reports of electrie printing  are correct the printing of the  twentieth century is certainly in  plain prospect already.  Says Hill Has Control.-  Wcstern Mining World.  The Toronto syndicate owning  ,the-Crow='s=Nest=coal=fields=-closed=  negotiations with J. J. Hill this  week and transferred to bis control  this vast property. Mr. Hill refuses  to discuss the question and president Jaffray said the transfer to J.  J.

BOARD   OF   HEALTH  REGULATIONS  For the Prevention of the Spread of  Smallpox in the City of Kelson.  Revelstoke  Opposed  to the   Charter.  The Revelstoke Herald, in discussing the application for the Hill  railway charter whieh is to tap the  icoal fields of 'East Kootenay, says:  "Things have come to such a pass  that the very existence of mining  in Kootenay depends upon our  being able to get local smelters and  refineries established in,the district. It is a very doubtful point  whether the powers behind this  proposed charter are not hostile to  the establishment of any smelters  or refineries in this province. It  may be taken for granted that the  smelting combine recently formed  in the states is not likely to be  friendly to the existence of rival  smelters and refineries in Kootenay.  They did not go to the trouble of  forming their trust in order to  build up competitors in Canada.  Now we want the Crow's Nest coal  fields to help us build up our smelters, but the men behind the desired charter are closely allied with  the American smelter combine.  This is the crux of the whole situation and no amount of talk about  the benefits of railway competition  All passengers arriving at the City of Nelson  from all points oast of the Kootenay.

Emory will be taken to New Westminster this evening. Constable  Young will take him as far as  Nakusp, while constable Forrester  will have him in charge the rest of  the way.    An important strike is reported  from thfl'Noble Five, near Sandon.  AMONG THE WHOLESALERS  This Week's Business.

Whittington of Vancouver, superintendent of the  Methodist domestic and foreign  missions of this province,, was in  the city for a few hours yesterday  en route to Trail from the Slocan  district. Speaking of the work here  he said that there was a movement  on foot to establish regular services  at the Silver King and Athabasca  mines. Tf the project goes into ef-  "fect another Methodist minister  will be stationed in Nelson and the  two will take turns in holding services at the mines each Sunday.  This will be one of the principal  questions under discussion at the  general conference, which will meet  in this city on May Oth.  To Interview Other Boards.  Tho members of the Nelson Board  of Trade are still considering the  lead question, although they practically disposed ; of ifc afc the last  meeting. They are now discussing  the proposition of sending the secretary or some other member to the  various boards of the Kootenays to  get them to select delegates to accompany the Nelson delegates to  Ottawa. This is in accordance with  the movement of the Kaslo board  of trade, and as some of the local  members do not agree wifch ifc, it  may result in nothing. However,  the question will be discussed at  the next meeting of the council of  the board;  ' '���  Kaslo Delegate Here.  The move taken by the Kaslo  Board of Trade, in favor of a  government bonus in aid qf lead  refining is stirring up much enthusiasm. G. O. Buchanan of Kaslo,  who was appointed to interview a  number of the boards of trade, is in  the city in consultation wifch the  Nelson board and city council, asking them to co-operate and send  delegates to Ottawa.  Mr. Buchanan speaking of the  matter said: "We do not expect  to send to Ottawa representatives  who do not understand the question,  but men whoare thoroughly familiar  with   ifc.    We expect that every  EEC.    BWBES  <fe  OO.  3STE3LS03ST  ETA8LO  s-A-isrooisr  STOVES!   STOVES!   STOVES!

Governments like to  deal with principals. When the  lumber or cattle men have dealings  with the government they send the  largest operators in their respective  lines. Therefore we are sure that  any delegation unaccompanied by  men who could demonstrate the  necessity for the extraordinary aid  asked for would be very week.  There is no class of men whose  representations would have greater  weight with the government than  a delegation of the labor unions,  who could certify that the situation  is so grave that the laboring class  is~already suffering, and that men  are being driven out of.the country  for want of employment."
