C, FKIDAY MORNING,  APRIL 19,  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  EXPORT AM  IMPORT DUTIES  Now Face the People of Free  Trade England.  ONE CENT A POUND ON SUGAR  COAL IN THE FUTURE  AN EXPORT DUTY.  South African War to Sate Has Cost  Britain Double That of the Crimean Campaign.  London, April;. 18;��� The chancellor of the exchequer, sir Michael  Hicks-Beach rose in the house today  ��� at*'."4:10 p. iri., amidst rounds of  cheers, aud commenced his budget  statement. His opening sentence  was not promising : "During the  last five years," said the chancellor  of the exchequer, "we have been invariably able to congratulate the  house on a general increase in the  prosperity of the 'country, but the  year 1900, especially the last six  months, shows symptoms of a  change. Our foreign trade during  the year considerably increased, but  in Values rather than in volume.  This has been mainly derived from  the high price of certain articles,  notably coal, from which the receipts showed a surplus of ��2,077,0U0  over last year. But for this his estimates would not have:been realized.  Sir Michael . Hicks-Beach, in  reviewing the .various items  of.   ' revenue,'    - mentipned ,. that  " tlie'Vfevemie   " from "' beer'"   "was"  �����10,000,000 io&s than the  estimate.  -."That decrease," said the chancellor  of the exchequer, "is probably  attributable to the fact that very  many beer drinkers' are in South  Africa, and also to the ' decrease in  the spending power of the people,  owing to the price of coal. Experience, however, has shown that  we have practically reached* the  limit iu tlie profitable taxation of  spirits.", The receipts from the  death duties were ��1,500,000 below  those of the preceding year, but he  had expectations for next year.  The prolongation of the war and  the absence of ^business ou the  stock exchange were responsible for  the unsatisfactory yield from  stamps.:   In noting that the yield  ���from the income tax was ��1,150,000  abovethe estimate, the chancellor  -remarkedjthat iuAvyelye^years_the.  income on which taxation had been  paid had been increased by not less  than ��120,000,000, a fact that he  hoped the house would remember  -when* he reached a latter portion of  his speech. , .   -  The deficit of the past year, ��53,-  207,000, showed that the government had paid ��15,413,000 out of the  current revenue for the cost of the  South African war. The total  amount provided by the state last  year aggregated the enormous sum  ���of ��19S,310,000. "As to the national debt," said the chancellor,  "it stands in painful contrast with  last year. But the funded debt had  decreased by ��1,425,000. On April  1st the national debt stood at  ��t5>870;0:00,000, au increase of ��55,-  000,000 7 oii account of the war."  Turning to the present year, the  chancellor said that the total estimated expenditure was ��187,600,-  000. On the existing \ basis  it was estimated the revenue  would be ��51,876,050, leaving  a deficit, of about ��55,000,-  000. "How is the deficit to be  met?" asked sir Michael. "I will  never be responsible for the fatal  policy of -paying the whole cost of  the war out of loans without putting a reasonable amount on the  taxpayers of the day. The real  difficulty, however, is not so much  the cost of the war in South Africa,  as the operations in China, as they  will increase our ordinary expenditure, even if the war comes to an  end within three or four months  (This statement caused cheering  from the Irish members), or sooner  than the honorable members suppose.  '   "Our ordinary expenditure will  not permit of additional taxes at  present.       It   therefore    becomes  necessary to put our expenditure  on a broader bosis.   The house haa  reached a point when it is necessary to widen the scope of taxation,  but  direct   taxpayers   must  bear  their share of the burden.    I propose that two pence shall be added  to the income tax, making one shilling and two pence on. the pound.  The extra two pence will  realize  ��3,800,000.   There will be  no addition to the wine, beer, spirits or  tobacco duties.    I am not disposed  to impose a customs duty on manufactured   imported goods,' as suggested by sir Howard Vincent. The  average consumption of sugar is 56  pounds per head.    Sugar ��� is  taxed  every    other    community   in  j/>tnd is taxed in the United  Stg^aij^In this country taxes re-  mailjVJfon sugar long after the institution of free trade.     The effect  of my proposals upon" the  price of  sugar is doubtful, as the price of  sugar is  governed by the bounty  system.   The great bulk of imports  of sugar comes from bounty-giving  countries.   The bounty  system is  that a country gives a bounty on  the   average  production of sugar  within its borders, and at the same  time   does   its    best t to    restrict  competition' by    its'    own   people   by     every   possible     means.  The result is that there is ah enormous surplus which has -to ��� find a  foreign market, and ��� this country,  under the present'eircumstances, is  the only, market,   therefore * it is  quite conservative,"unless, of course,  the bounty-giving countries reduce  the area of their sugar products, or  lower their own duties on sugar for  the   benefit  of their own  people,  both of which actions would mean  the abolition of the bounty system,  that the result of the tax, although  at first the price, might rise and,  consumption   consequently be  reduced, would be that there would  be such an inflow into the country  of bounty fed sugar, unable to go  elsewhere, that the price might  be  brought down.     Again,  I. do'not  believe the duty will injure persons  ���using sugar to anything like the  extent feared.    Of course provision  Would   be.���_macl<t, -fpr_-imposing- ,a,  duty oh manufactured articles from"  foreign countries coming.in competition with the home article. I have  endeavored tb reconcile the conflicting   interests.     Nothing must be  done to protect the British refiner  to the disadvantage of the British  consumer.    On the other hand fair  play must be given to the British  refiner as compared with his continental trade.   I propose a duty on  refined sugar of four shillings : and  two pence a hundred  weight.   A  half  penny   per pound would be  four shillings and eight pence, so a  margin of six pence is left to cover  the customs, etc.  "There is therefore no reason why  a tax of four shillings and two  pence should increase the present  price more than a half penny per  pound." The graduated scale of taxation would be as follows: refined  jiUgar,=w;hich=is=polarized=at^98^and=  upwards, and which represents two-  thirds of.the total imports, would  pay the full tax: This will diminish  to a minimum of two shillings per  hundred weight on raw sugar polarized at 76. This scale is only tentative, and I am perfectly willing to  listen to'criticism and the benefit of  experience and better knowledge.  Molasses, in which are included the grocery syrups,  consumed very largely by the*  poor, pay two shillings per hundredweight, and glucose, of which  a great deal has been heard lately,  and is used in the manufacture of  jams and aerated waters, will have  to bear a tax of one shilling and  eight pence. I anticipate a yield  of ��5,100,000 from this tax. The  "West Indies will not be exempt.  "My next proposal is a novel one,  unknown in this country for forty-  five years.. It is anv export duty of  a shilling a ton on coal. In aiming  to secure a revenue from coal 1 am  not. sacrificing traded The imposition of a shilling, which is infinitely less ��� than the fluctuations in  price, will do no injury to. the trade,  even supposing the export of coal  is checked. I am not sure that even  that result will be an evil. From  this source I expect ��2,100,00, making an aggregate ' of. ��15,000,000  from new taxation. My final balance will, be from taxation, a revenue of ��122,200,000, from non-  taxation'��21,055,000, a total of  . ��143,255,000 pounds. I propose to  reduce the expenditure, by again  suspending the sinking fund, to  ��182,902,000. This shows a deficit  of ��39,707,000 to which must be  added ��1,259,000 for the fresh  debt I have to borrow. I  must  ask the house to give   me  borrowing powers considerably niu  excess of this deficit of ��41,000,000.  In order to finance the exchequer  I ask to borrow ��60,000,000 by  means of consols. For obtaining  contributions from the Transvaal,  sir David Barbour's reports are not  encouraging at present. I think  the house will see that the war has  brought the- country to the verge  of ruin (Opposition cheers greeted  this remark). This cannot longer  be considered. The small war has  cost ��151,000,000, double the cost  of the Crimean war. There was  ��67,000,000 of the unfunded debt  redeemable within the next ten  years. I-have tried to put before the  house a true accouut of the finances  at the present time and immediate  future. I have not laid proposals  before the house with ' a view of  getting transient popularity, but I  have endeavored to establish a  principle of contribution by the  whole community to the burdens of  the state."  Sir Michael Hicks-Beach concluded at 6.40 p. m. amidst loud applause, having spoken two hours  and twenty-six minutes.  Sir William Vernon Harcourt  complimented the chancellor of the  exchequer on the adility he had  shown, declaring that his speech  was characteristed by honesty and  equality, which was very much  lacking in the conduct of the war  in telling the house the whole truth  in regard to the position.  The budget,continued sirWilliam,  was but a chapter in the disastrous  accidents of the war. It was proposed to borrow altogether ��127,-  000,000 more, four times as much as  was borrowed1 for the Crimean war.  "We are living in an age of newspaper finance," said sir William,  "and of increased expenditures.  ��� We cannot goon without involving ��� this country in financial ruin.  Does anybody believe that this increase of expenditures is not to go  on?"; Sir William agreed that England'was not as strong" now as she  was at the close of the French war,  , and declared in conclusion that it  was the most disastrous statement  -that the exchequer had made.  .,_.- Afierthe jpeech^���the.cb.ancellor..  of the exchequer'in the house o'f-  commons, John Redmond, the  Nationalist leader, asked what interest Ireland had in the war, and  such au extraordinary disastrous  and disgraceful financial situation.  He protested against fresh taxation,  which he said imposed great injustice upon Ireland that already,  as admitted by the government  commission in 1893, was greatly  overtaxed. He severelyt attacked  Joseph Chamberlain on the war  policy.'  Replying to criticisms, sir Michael  Hicks-Beach said there were valuable assets in the Transvaal, but  that it was impossible to say wha,t^  the contribution for war in the*  present state of that country  would be.  Mr. Balfour said it was necessary  to pass the resolutions, whereupon  .the^hOuse^divided^on^the^s'ugar-  duty, which was adopted by a vote  of 183 to 125. The coal duty was  adopted by a vote of 171 to 127.  On the resolution to authorize  the war loans being put before the  house, John Redmond moved to report progress. Sir Michael Hicks-  Beach assented, and the house then  adjourned.  Milling Records,  ��� The following a^re the mining  transactions recorded yesterday:  Certificates of work on the Mars,  Independence, Venus, Flyiug Dutchman and Phoebus, all on Hall creek,  to W. H. Hutcheson ; transfer of the  Noonday, ��� on Hall creek, from  Michael Egan to Robert Corlett,  and King of the West and Iron  King from same to John Long and  Peter Battiste. The former claim  is on Hall creek and the latter on  Bird creek. Certificates of improvements were granted on.the.Mascot,  and Pilot Kuob. "John Riley re-;  corded two new locations on Beaver  creek, one mile from Sayward���the  Gem and the Beacon King.  An Arrangement Arrived at.  A private telegram was received  in Nelson yesterday from H. E.  Croasdaile, one of the Nelson delegates now at Ottawa, in which it is  stated that at a meeting of the railway committee of the house of commons yesterday,,/f;he minister of  railways announced that satisfactory arrangements had been arrived at between the government  and the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company respecting the safeguarding  of the fuel supply of Canadian  smelters in connection with the  Crow's Nest Southern railway  charter, y  GOVERNMENT STANDS PAT  WILL NOT BE HELD UP BY THE  \     HILL OUTFIT.  Legislature Will Probably Give Cities  , th�� Power' to Abolish the  Ward System.  Victoria; "April 18.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���It is not likely that  the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern  railway scheme will get any assistance from .the provincial government at this session, and the Coast  to Kootenay railway outfit are,a  trifle disgruntled today and the  spellbinders- have all* been paid' off.  The Crow's Neist Southern Railway  bill will be ainended on- the same  lines, as it has been in the railway  committee at-Ottawa, or perhaps in  a still more stringent way.   '  Martin's champerty bill was discussed in'committee today, --and _it  will undoubtedly become law.  Houston,-of.'Nelson, will make an  effort to secure a subsidy for a railway from'Fort Nelson to Golden. -  - The municipal committee will report several > amendments to -the  Municipal Clauses Act, one of-them  giving city ' councils power to  abolish wards.  Union Label Bill Thrown-Out.  Ottawa, Abril' 18.���[Special to  The Tribune'.]���At a meeting of the  banking and commerce committee  in the senate; today, senator Tem-  pleman's trades union label bill was  thrown out - almost unanimously.  Letters were read -from the unions  threatening to boycott the McDonald tobacco.'factory in Montreal,  which had a' decided effect against  the bill.     , ��� -   '.. .    "  BOAT CLUB'S NEW OFFICERS  '. Will Affiliate -WiUrthe'-N? P.-A. 0.  ���    /  A well attended meeting qf the  Nelson, Boat Club-was held last  night to arrange for the., season's  work, and from the - program outlined it is evident that aquatic  sports will receive the' "attention  they deserve this year. It is five  years ago since the club was  started, and it is pleasing to know  that it has grown in strength and  popularity, and that the oarsmen  are determined'to avail themselves  of the exceptional facilities which  Nelson offers for such recreation.  The election of officers resulted  as follows: A. H. Buchanan, president; captain Gore, vice-president;  J. W. Ford, secretary-treasurer; E.  W. Matthews, captain, and C. B.  ^Winterpvice captainr^MessrsrWet^  more, Bevan and Thompson were  re-elected on the committee, and  Playford and Wragge added as  new members.        ,.  The report and accounts of the  outgoing committee were" read and  adopted. They showed the club  finances to be in a healthy condition.  The secretary was directed to  write to alderman Selous expressing the regret of the club at his retirement as an officer, and hoping  that he would not sever his connection with the organization.  A suggestion that the club should  join the North Pacific Amateur  Oarsmen was discussed at length  and resulted in a decision -favoring  the move. Affiliation with the  amateur oarsmen is calculated to  promote interest in aquatics and to  bring out the best men in the club  to represent Nelson at the regattas  annually held on otJ^>r.rf.waters. It  was also decided .thai;'-,two new lap-  streaks be purchased, whicli will  give greater facilities for practice.  The question of finances was considered and a decision arrived at  that a subscription list be opened  and the public invited to contribute towards the fund of the club.  The committee were instructed to  make the necessary arrangements  for the boathouse and to have' the  float repaired.  The question of entrance fee was,  discussed and the majority uf the  members decided that this should  be abolished, but that the subscription, remain as heretofore, at $5 per  annum.  A special committee consisting of  Johnson, Wragge and the secretary  were appointed to draft rules and  bylaws and submit the same to the  next meeting, to ' be ��� held neit  month.  ��� It is expected that the Vancouver, Victoria and Winnipeg clubs  will be represented at the" annual  regatta to be held iri July.  No Pound for Wanderers.  The fact that the report of the  board of work's was laid over for a  month by. the: city council leaves  Nelson without a pound. There  was a suggestion in the report that  a few, stalls be erected east of the  recreation grounds in which wandering animals and unlicensed dogs  might be impounded, but in the absence of such accommodation the  poundkeeper is practically, powerless.' He cannot collect the dog  tax, as owners will not pay up  while ownerless canines are  allowed to roam at large "without  collars or tags. Horses, cattle, etc.,  enjoy carte blanche in Nelson just  now to the annoyance of the .public, and they will continue to do so  as long as there is no pound.    .  ' -   Collecting the Road Tax.  A few weeks ago Charles Waterman was appointed road tax collector by the city' council, but tbe  date at which he should - start out  on his duties was left to mayor  Fletcher to decide. His worship  has not given instructions on the  point .yet, and now suggests" that  the collection be done by the police"  and other city officials. This course  will probably be adopted on the  grounds of economy. ; A goodly  number of those who will be called  upon to pay the tax are from time  to time in the city employ, and the  amount-can be deducted from their  earnings, while it is thought the  police will be in a better position  to see that all newcomers pay.  To Be Buried at Egansville.  ' Ther remains. of the , late ' H. H.  Reeves were yesterday brought -to  town from, New-- Denver 'over- the  ���C.P.R.

He had.  recently"; been ihAthe"- employ,' of  -Hiinter .Brotheisj^atiThree.- Forks*  -aiid taking ill;"was'rembVed to"th'e  Hospital at New 'Denver, where he  succumbed to his maladies on Tuesday. -The body will ��be taken ,to  Egansville, Ontario, for interment.  Reeves was-about'23 years of age,  and-a great favorite with a large  circle of friends.   Obliged to Move On.  ��� Yesterday the contractor excavating the post office basement got  as far as the city weighmaster's  shack aud would havo scooped it  out had it not been removed in  time to avoid trouble. A couple of  horses were brought into requisition and the caboose shifted some  20 feet east, where it will" be safe  for the next few days. If the scales  are" not removed they will be covered up and rendered useless during the process of excavation.  Work at the Silver Hill Mine.  George Roy, superintendent of  the Silver Hill mine, near Crawford  Bay, was in town yesterday with  some beautiful samples of ore taken  from a ledge recently encountered  on the property. Roy has a gang  of men engaged in development  work, and says the Silver Hill is  looking better than ever. If the  assayer's report on the recent find  proves satisfactory a largo force  will probably be put on forthwith.  Bicycle Riding on Sidewalks.  Bicyclists would do well'to. remember that the sidewalks of tho  city are not intended for their  wheels, but for pedestrians, and  that the police have instructions to  keep the walks clear. It is not sufficient to ring the bell when approaching a person on a sidewalk���  a citizen has a right to be "there, a  mounted bicyclist has not. In the  outlying districts this habit is indulged in too frequently.  Quoits a Popular Game.  In addition to the Nelson Quoit  Club a number of similar organizations have been formed in the city,  and in every district may be seen  devotees of the game throwing  horseshoes when quoits are not  available. Arrangements are being  made by the boarders of a couple  of the uptown hotels to play a  match game, which is to come off  uext week.   W. T. Beadles Dead.  At about 1 o'clock this morning  W. T. Beadles, postmaster at Salmo,  died at the general hospital. Deceased was admitted to the institution on the 7th instant, suffering  from pneumonia. He was married  in Nelson in July last, and the day  befofe he went under medical treatment his wife presented him with a  first-born. W. B. Campbell of Spokane and C. Willis of Salmo came  to Nelson to see their ailing:friend,  but so low was his condition that  they would not .be allowed the  privilege. The deceased had a general store at Erie and another at  Salmo and was well known in  Nelson. .  More Chinese Superstition.  Washington, April 18.���The secretary of state received a cable  message this morning from Mr.  Squires, United States charge  d'affaires, dated at Pekin, on the  18th, saying that the winter palace  occupied by von Waldersee was accidentally destroyed by fire, and  that general Schawartzhoff, his  chief of staff was fatally burned.  This incident' may prove more  serious than appears on the surface.  From the Chinese standpoint it  was" impossible to " consider  the return of the imperial  family so long as the1 commander-in-chief of the allied forces  was in actual occupation of the  imperial palace but a new objection  is created in the removal of the palace" itself. Under Chinese usage  the imperial family must occupy  these exclusive quarters reserved  for them within the prohibited  precincts.   Comment on the Budget.   ."  \ London, April 19.���On the whole  'the statement of sir Michael Hicks-  Beach appears to have been fairly  .well received, and the chancellor of  -theexchequer is congratulated upon  a just distribution of burdensome  .debt.' There is little doubt .that in  raising new taxes instead of increasing old ones, sir Michael ' has  courageouslycourted much hostility  "and, given v" the ' Liberals an  opportunity toTclose their ranks  and attack the'" government"- on  its. financial policy;. "Many, ministerialists are^ dissatisfied 'because  tlie government has1 failed to grant  differential treatment to/.their interests, in .the sugar tax. The coal  duty,'" however'^, seems(^digitiwed^tO"  excite tlie keenest opposition. It  has created consternation in Wales  and the north of England. North  country exporters to the continent  assert-that the duty will almost  prevent competition abroad witli  Westphaliari coal. In Wales it is  urged that the duty will injure the  miners and materially assist the  United States and Germany. One  Liberal 'has figured out that the  war has cost ��1000 for every Boer  killed.          Take More Cattle Than Boers.  - London, April 18.���A despatch  from general Kitchener, dated Pretoria, Wednesday, April 17th, says:  "Plummer has occupied Bathfont,  capturing 13 prisoners and a number of rifles and ammunition.  Douglas' column has occupied Dul-  -strooin.���Six-Boers-were^killed.^Oh-  general Kitchener's advance from  Lydenburg, the Boers blew up a  long Tom. Thirteen prisoners were  captured. Elliot's division has  brought in a large number of  cattle."       The Plague in Cape Town.  Capk Town, April 18.���Ten new  cases of the bubonic plague, including two Europeans, were officially  reported today. Two additional  deaths have occurred. Official advices to the colonial oflice regarding  the progress of the bubonic plague  in South Africa show that prior to  April 13th there occurred 41 cases,  three of which were among persons  under the naval construction men.  English Turf Winners.  London, April 18.���The Craven  stakes of 500 sovereigns at Newmarket was won by Mr. Rassels'  Iligo, Champagne was second, and  Petrohius third. The double trial  plate of 200 sovereigns, the winner  to be sold by auction for 200  sovereigns, was won by P.Lorillard's  Cornetta, ridden by Maher.  Territory Instead of Cash.  London, April 19.���Some of the  London papers publish a statement  that Russia has offered to reduce  her indemnity claim to ��10,000,000  on condition that China signs the  Manchurian convention, and grants  further concessions in connection  with the Siberian railroad.  Ex-Governor Macdonnell in Rossland,  Rossland, April 18.���Ex-governor Macdonnell, of Idaho, was here  today on his way to the Boundary  district, where he will inspect  various mining propositions.

That the commercial interests of  the Dominion are frequently not  very widely separated from the  - s jlfish interests of Canada's greatest  monopoly, is demonstrated by the  fight which the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company is now making  at Vancouver for its fair proportion  of the business offering from the  Canadian Yukon. Ever since the  Klondyke was discovered the Canadian cities on the Coast were  robbed of what should have been  their legitimate trade by reason of  the discriminations practiced by  the United States bottoms in favor  of % Seattle and other American  ports;   and -Canadian trade stag-  - nated because there were no Canadian' transportation interests  strong enough to make war upon  the American buccaneers. Matters  remained in this unsatisfactory  state until the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company acquired the old  Canadian Pacific Navigation Company of Victoria, when it threw  down the gauntlet to its American  rivals. The C. P. R; now demands  a fair share ��� of the southbound  business of the Canadian Yukon  and proposes to get it.   It demands  -that American bottoms trading between Vancouver and the north  shall call at Vancouver when southbound before touching at any of  the Sound ports, and it gives them  the alternative of calling or keeping out altogether in order to avoid  a rate war. This is done to secure  business for the Canadian road, but  incidentally it will do more to conserve the trade of the Canadian  Yukon for Canadian cities than any  -others-move-that-could_be_made.-  Heretofore returning Klondykers  were carried past Canadian ports  against their will, and in a measure  forced to patronize United States  merchants and United States transportation companies when they  would prefer doing business with  their own people. Now that  coercion is met with coercion Canadian interests will probably get a  fair deal.  Hill, having decided to build the  Republic-Greenwood line without a  charter, does not follow the same  course with respect to the Crow's  Nest Southern road he is so anxious  to build.     -  UNITED STATES HAPPENINGS  SAN FRANCISCO, 18.���The  transport Rosecranz has arrived  from Manila with a portion of the  35th regiment.

Compares Kensit With Carrie Nation.  000,000 proposition practically destroys the prospects of atiy canal  improvements whatsoever. In my  opinion it was a great mistake not  to accept the improvement that  was within reach, and which would  have almost doubled the facilities  of the present waterway. No new  boats are beiag built and none will  be, and in three years'time I venture to say that the present number of boats will have been so reduced that the canals will be practically useless."

New York, April 18.���General  Samuel Pearson, the Boer officer  who was refused a writ of injunction by the United States  circuit court against the local  British officers by which he sought  to prevent the further exportation  of mules from this part to South  Africa, has sent a petition directly  to president McKinley asking for  the relief the courts refused. In the  recent decision judge Partange  pointed out that general Pearson  has this right, saying that the  matter being a political one, it  should be taken before the executive  department of the government instead of before the judicial.  Suit Over Slocan Boy Stock.  W. D. Wrighter has entered suit  in Spokane against  the  American  Boy Mining Company, in which he  asks for $1195 to pay for 5500 shares  of stock claimed to be due him and  $500 which he says the company  owes him,   Wrighter claims that in  June,   1900,' he   entered - into   au  agreement with the American Boy  Miniugand Milling Company whereby  it  was  agreed  that Wrighter  should take nn  option of 250,000  shares of the stock of the company,  which   he   was - to   float   in the  east-   for    not    less     than     five  cents per share.   A further clause  in the agreement, Wrighter says,  was to the effect that he should  receive 10,000 shares free and $500  - if he should sell the stock within a  certain   limited   time.      Wrighter  alleges he fulfilled the contract and  disposed of the stock within the  time limit, but that the company,  on the other hand, has refused to  do its part.    He claims the company has paid him only i500 shares  of stock  out of the  10,000 shares  promised him, and that the^oOO to  be given him has not been paid. He  thinks "the money  and  stock   are  worth  $1195,  for which  he prays"  judgment.  -&..f0*00*00*00-  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  ring  m  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  We have just received our first shipment of Carpets, direct from  Kidderminster, England.

"I  think it is typical of the Anglo-  Saxon for the minority to attempt  to overthrow the majority by lawlessness." His grace is quoted as  saying: "John Kensit declared several months ago that he would  break up the installation of the  lord bishop of London. John Kensit is like your Mrs. Carrie Nation  of Kansas. Neither one is truly  representative of any class, creed,  or political principle.

The members of the  board, however, were positive in  their assertions tliat there would be  no settlement of the trouble unless  all discharged men at tlie McKeesport works were reinstated.

The companies composing the  steel combine have been paying  $200,000 annually in pensions to  men who are wholly or partially  disabled by accidents. The average  sum received by each man is $250 a  year, or $2500 in ten" years! Most  of these pensioners are compelled  to live in idleness, and when they  die. the pension' stops "and- the  families are left in want and without homes. Now general ...Booth  Tucker comes forward ; and proposes" to the trust that the Salvation  Army shall care. for. -the ,^aged��  and injured employees of  the big corporation,. giving  each family a chance to own a  comfortable home and'ten acres of  land-on one of the home* colonies  maintained by the Salvation Army-  in the western states. The object  of the plan is to furnish a method  by which' tihese crippled persons  may still do some work and .secure  permanent homes for their families.

Of foreign  countries the smallest number of  divorces in the given year   was  in  Canada, where only 12 were granted.  Next, to the United States the larg-  estnumber was in France with 6245  in the year.    Germany was a close  second with only 100 less.  - From a religious standpoint there  are about 73 divorces to every 100,-  000. Catholics,  while, divorces for  the same total among Protestants  are 383.   More than 40 per cent of  all divorces granted in the United  Statesis on the ground of desertion,- and-divorces are five times as  frequent in the city as in country  districts.  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  Good Advice  ������������  Can  be given, taken and used without  to  to  to  to  to  ft.  spoiling it.  before; and  many use it,  advice we  can  the Kootenays  orders, and be  Just as good after using as  it makes no difference how  it is good always.

His salary as president of the South  African Republic was $35,000. a  year. Then his innumerable perquisites and extras allowed him  amounted to nearly twice that  sum. Then he wa$v' sharp about  contracts and -careless about his  word, and so it is"''belief ed---that he  accumulated $30,000,000, and that  he managed to get the most of it to  Europe in advance of himself. Tip  of the Tongue says that Kruger is  a very religious man as Boer  religion goes. About all the education he has was* derived from  diligent study, "of a great family  Bible.      ..'     -.        ..     ������'  Growth of Divorce. '  ' Iu 1870 three and a half per cent  of all marriages in the United States  ended in divorce courts. In 1881  the percentage had risen to four  and eight-tenths. In 1890 it was  six and two-tenths, and 1900 it was  eight per cent, In other words, the  percentage of divorces to marriages  in thei United States has more than  doubled since 1870. The total number of divorces in the United States  for a given year was 23,427. During the same year 20,111 divorces  were granted in all the world outside of the United States.

W. H. BULLOCK-WKBSTICR,  Chief Licence Inspector.  .Chief Constable's Olllco. Nelson; B. C.  Ap-illti'h, 180L  VISITOR FROM NEW ONTARIO  Who Talks of the Rainy River.  Among tlie arrivals at the Hume  last night was W. A. Preston, manager of the Olive mine. The Olive  mine is in New Ontario, and in  what is known as Mine Centre, on  Rainy lake. Mr. Preston says the  district is exceptionally rich in free  milling ores, and that up to date:  nothing has been found there but  gold and iron, but there is reason to  believe that some nickel deposits  will be uncovered. The ore, as a  rule, lies in immense bodies and is  low grade, but many exceptionally  rich leads have been located. The  district is an immense one, and is.  not prospected to any extent, and  being somewhat isolated and  difficult of approach, its progress  will be slow. There is little  machinery in at present, but a good  deal of satisfactory work lias been  done on the Olive. The climate  will never make the place a health  resort, as the fall is wet and the  winter long and severe���40 degrees  below zero not being uncommon.  New Ontario, which is now attracting a good deal of attention in  the east, is an immense tract of fertile land in the valley of the Rainy  river, between Fort Francis and the  Lake of the Woods. Hundreds of  families are going in this year and.  the district is fast filling up.   The  agricultural lands are very rich,  and the place gives promise of a  great future. Great belts of good  timber are scattered throughout  New Ontario and the water power  is unlimited. "But," says Mr. Preston, "the man who called it Rainy  river knew what he was doing. The  raiufall is very heavy, but when  the summer opens up anything will  grow there. It will be a rich and  populous country in the near fixture. Tlie Rainy lake drains the  Rainy river and a number of  smaller streams empty into it. We  are in the lake district, which is a  rocky country of early volcanic  formation in whicli gold is found  from one end to the other.

JSTEILS03SF  STORES   AT  S^ItsTIDOIET  GREEN MOUNTAIN'S LEDGE  Largest in Rossland Camp.  Rossland, April 18.���The last  boring made by the diamond drill  on the Green Mountain shows that  it has one.of. the; largest ledges in  the Trail Creek district. Recently  the diamond drill was started from  the surface, boring at an angle of  45 degrees. When the drill had  penetrated 200 feet a ledge. was enr  countered. Ore was bored through  for 35 feet, and then a porphyry  Avail was met. The porphyry  lasted for three feet, and next came  80 feet more of ore. Beyond this  what appears to be an ancient river  bed was met. This shows that the  ledge is practically 115 feet wide,  making it the widest ore body so  far found in the camp.'  The LeRoi has one ore body, being stpped from wall to wall, which  is 105 feet wide. The" ore in the  Green mountain find carries molybdenite, gold and copper.' It is identical with the ore found in the  Giant and the management think  that the ledge is an extension of the  one found in the Giant. The borings run from $8 to $10 to the ton.  Doubtless rich ore chutes will be  encountered when the ledge is  drifted on. The ore can be readily  concentrated, and the find, may be  regarded as the most .important  that has been made.in <the camp  for several months. The manage-;  ment is arranging to open the  ledge by means of shafts and drifts.  P. McL.
