BOTHA NEGOTIATES FOR PEACE.
With Disunion Among Leaders ol the Enemy
Finish ot South African War li In
Sight.
General Botiia linn re-opened negotiations with the British for
pence. An explained in Cape
Town, this action was determined
in part hy General Botha's discovery, at a recent nieeting, that
General Dewet's intellect had
weakened, and that his influence
with hit- followers was diminishing
and that a continuance of the campaign, in view of General Dewet's
irresponsibility, rested with Gen.
Botha alone. It is understood that
General Dewet, at his recent interview with Botha, refused to surrender, hut Gen. Botha regarding
him as irresponsible, undertakes to
negotiate in behalf of the entire
Boer forces. The British authorities consider thut if Gen. Botha
surrenders Dewet's following can
be easily taken.
A   Student   Weighing  Only   IN Pounds,
With n Lilt ot Over Two tons.
BO YEARS'
EXPERIENCE
One ol the daily province papers
a few weeks ago gave us this information: Harvard has a young
law student weighing only 150
pounds, who ban just broken the
intercollegiate svength test record
with a lift of l,8ij9 kilograms or a
little over two tons and one hundred weight avoirdupois. Lest any
one should attempt to work it out
that had this young athlete himself
weighed 300 pound*, he would have
been able to lift lour tons, it may
be pointed out that none of the giants of the college can come any
where near his record. He ie spoken of as a studt.it rather than an
uthlete himself, which makes his
achievement all the more interesting; he has never sought distinction in any branch nf college sports
and merely takes systematic exei-
cise for his health. This would
seem to be a case containing a
strong argument in favor of moderation in athletic training.

The Largest Ship Afloat.
The new White Star line steamer
Celtic, the largest ship afloat, was
launched at Belfast April 4 in the
presence of a large and representative gathering. The christening
was done hy the Marchioness of
Dufferin. Among the prominent
persons who participated in the
ceremony wan the Countess Cado-
gan, wife of the Lord Lieutenant of
Ireland, the Marquis and Marcbio'
ness of Dufferin, the Marquis and
Marchioness of Londonderry and
the Karl and Countess of Shaites-
bury.
The arrangements for the launching were similar to those of the
Oceanic, and the new vessel glided
from the ways and was pulled up
within her own length by dropping
three pairs of anchors.
The Celtic has nine decks snd a
capacity of 2,950 passengers. She
will carry a crew of 355 men. Her
tonnage is 8,600 greater than that
uf the Oceanic, and nearly double
that of the Kaiser Wilhelm der
Groses, and her displacement is
12,500 greater than that of the latter vessel, while her displacement
and tonnage are 10,300 over that of
the Great Eastern.
Fatal   Steamer Disaster on Fraser River,
The boiler of the steamer Rtt*
mnna, a vessel running between
New Westminster and Langly, on
the Fraser river, 30 miles from
Vancouver, exploded Wednesday
afternoon. Four persons were killed outright and of seven others that
were seriously injured not more
than two are expected to live.
The dead are Mrs. Henry Morrison, of Fort Langley, Mrs. James
Baillie of Mount Lehman, and two
deck hands who had heen on the
vessel but a week. The two women
were standing on the bow and were
knocked into the river and drowned. Two babies belonging to the
two women, who had been left on
the .upper deck were uninjured.

The V. V. & E, Survey.
The location survey of tlie V. V.
& E. railway has been completed
between Cascade via Grand Forks
to Curlew, Wash., a point ten miles
south of the Boundary line, und
where the Kettle river swingB northwest to re-enter Canada at Midway.
An advance party of engineers has
reached Chesaw, Wash. It is believed that the line will re-enter
Canada for the third time near
Camp McKinney.
Toronto to Have Another Big Hotel.
The contract for a new hotel on
King street, Toronto has been let
to an American construction company. The figure is $800,000. This
is in addition to $300,000 for the
Bite and estimated $200,000 for the
furnishings.
Notes By The Way.
The C.V. R. has set aside $100,-
000 to be applied on improvements
on the line between Nelson and
Robson.

CHRISTINA LAKE.
As a Pleasure Resort-Magnificent Scenery-
Flue Boating and Fishing.
Interest in Christina Lake as a
suitable place for summer outings
is growing more popular every year.
Even now it affords great pleasure
and much profit to the piscatorially
inclined, ajid for boatiug its waters-
can not be duplicated anywhere in
the northwest country. The lake-
itself is 18 miles in length and a
mile or more wide in places. Being wholly surrounded by high,
mountains, its surface is ever placid
so that the smallest row or sail
boot iB always safe from sudden
atmospheric disturbances. The
shores of the lake afford abundant
sports for the huntsman and mountain climber, and ducks and geese
are frequenters of that locality. Let
us step into the future u decade
a decide upon a visit to the then
broadly celebrated Christina Lake.
A magnificent roadway bas been
constructed around that entire
body of water. Besides several elegant smaller roadway public houses,
a magnificent hotel, erected at the
head of the lake, costing, furnished*,
not less than $250,000, is crowded
every summer with pleasure seekers
from the Boundary, Kootenay and
Coast cities, and from other parts
of Canada and the United States-
Two nr three steamers are plying
.between Cusccade and the head of
the lake, and altogether the scene
is a beautiful and enjoyable one,
and this imagination is not impossible of realization.
BRIEF  LOCAL MENTION
Mr. T*. F. Carden has been in
Nelcon this week undergoing an examination by the Board of Examiners for an Aseayors' License.
J. P. Graves and T. W. Holland
passed through Cascade Sunday
in a buggy, bound for Bossburg.
It is said they were going to Spokane on matters connected witb
the Grand Forks-Republic railway.
Frank Hutchinson, who has been
working in the mines at Rossland
the past year, has been doing
assessment work on some of his
claims on Shamrock mountain this
week.
A. H. Thompson will, during the
summer, run an express and passenger stage between Cascade and
Christina Lake, connecting with-
the boat on the lake and tbe C. P.
R, trains here.   Two trips daily.
A bridge repairing crew nf 10 or
15 men is now at work repairing
bridges between here and Gladstone
under the supervision of J.Carlson,
Mr. Wall having resigned the position to go lo Phoenix to reside
and take a position in the mines.
The housing in of the spans of the
big bridge here will begin in a few
days.
For some reason our Uossland
Miner does not reach this office till
the day after its publication. This
has only been the case for the past
two weeks, and may be due to a
negligent mailing clerk in the publication office. We can't afford to
be without the Miner, and we want
it up to date. f 2

// there is a blue mark in

The Houston nuisance has
not yet "been abated.
The Nelson Economist, a
Houston parrot, is denouncing
Hon. Smith Curtis. That's its
duty, as a C. P. R. conservative organ.
The innumerable enforced
schemes of direct and indirect
taxation in vogue, and increas'
ing with every session of the
legislature, are enough to depopulate the country.
An exchange complains of
the coming of the copper cent
in business matters on this
coast. A country that will
accept the Japanese and Chinese as citizens, must accept
the civilization they represent
We regret to note that the
Victoria Colonist is defending
the coming, presence and naturalization of Chinese and
Japanese immigrants. The
day is not distant when the
"Dennis Kearney Sand-lot"
agitation will be repeated on
the streets of the prominent
cities of this province. The
employment, by our premier,
of these laborers in his coal
mines, is a stain on his political character, that will render
"him obnoxious to the laboring
classes.	
Champerty, or the right to
stipulate a contingent fee on
the part of an attorney, is a
just an reasonable proposition,
and one calculated to be of
benefit to poor litigants. Opposition to it comes mainly
from large corporations. They
recognize the fact that employes injured by their negligence might under the contingent fee system, be compelled
to pay for theii negligence,
the injured person being otherwise unable to employ legal
assistance.
Premier Dunsmuir stands
between the people and the V.
V. & E. subsidy mongers,
says the Nelson Tribune, "He
says that he will make the
best bargain possible before
closing a deal to build a railway from "the coast to Kootenay." In other words, if the
Canadian Pacific Railway
Company offers to build the
road without a subsidy, he will
not pay the V. V. & E. crowd
a subsidy for building it. That
stand will meet with the approval of a large majority of
the people of the province.''
The above is a false position
taken by the Tribune in the
hope of misleading legislative
action. The people have had
enough of the C. P. R. "freehand,'' as the unanimous expressions of the local and associated boards of trade of the
province fully attest Instead
of being as the Nelson C. P. R.
organ states, the people are a
unit for a competative road.
The Vancouver Province
says the Phoenix Pioneer is
persistently pushing the claim
of the Boundary country for
two members in the local legislature, when the time for redistribution is ripe. The Pioneer is not pressing for two
members, but one, as all the
Boundary papers are doing.
Mr. Curtis is an active and
impartial representative, but
in view of the rapid growth of
the Rossland riding, and especially of that section of it
known as the Boundary district, the greatly increased interests of this rapidly growing
community, its demands have
become so enlarged that one
represeutative cannot, be his
intentions never so sincere
and honorable, do it justice.
The unanimous claim of the
Boundary press is that
this is, by population, volume
of business, etc., more entitled
to a member in the local legislature, than are some other
constituencies who have two.
All we ask over here is fair
treatment in the matter of
legislative representation.
The formation in the city of
Vancouver of the "Grocers'
Protective Association,'' makes
a very bad showing for the
terminal city. Seven hundred
and forty-two of its heretofore
supposedly honorable citizens
have been placed on the blacklist of the association as "professional bill-dodgers.'*
One thousand mules left
New Orleans the other day for
Cape Town, having been impressed into military service in
the Transvaal. The arrival of
these long-eared,muzzle-loaded
American recruits will probably settle the Boer war in
short order.
The C. P. R. is advertising in
England a conducted tour of
Western Canada, to commence
on Thursday, June 20th, at
Quebec, and extend to points
in British Columbia, including
the Boundary district, and return.    	
It is probable that Sir Wilfrid Laurier .with Hon. Messrs.
Sifton, Tarte and Paterson,will
visit British Columbia during
the summer season, and go as
as far as Dawson.
lie Railroad Outlook Still Eacoiimflnf.
Notwithstanding the etrong and
overwhelming demonstration of
public sentiment in favor of the
granting of the railway charters
! asked for hoth from the Dominion
I and Provincial governments, there
seeniB to be a very reluctant disposition, if not obstinate refusal, on
the parts of the two governments
to gratify the popular demand in
this respect. Still it is believed tbe
authorities will hardly dare to go
contrary to the absolute demands
of the people for these much needed
transportation facilities. Little by
little these matters progress, and
Boon we hope to see active building
operations begun on the various
proposed new lines. Yesterday the
surveying crew of the Great Northern began the setting of the location
stakes from the boundary line
south to Meyers Falls, which is
very reassuring in the matter in
which Cascade is most interested.
Some of our citizens claim to have
got a private tip and are wagering
that a contract will he let on the
survey between here and Columbia
in less than three days.
Mr. F. E. Tebo is expected to return here Monday.
���E. H. Robertson has returned to
Cascade from Robson.
Mr. Ferguson reports that Mrs. F.
arrived safely at Prince Albert, and
is enjoying the visit with her people.

a
MINOR MININQ NOTES.
It has been decided to employ
diamond drills in exploiting the
ore bodies in the B. C, Summit
camp.
In a distance of 146 feet in the
203-foot tunnel on the John Bull
group, near Gladstone, croescuting
of the ore body is progressing satisfactorily.
The Montana Ore Purchasing
company has declared its third
quarterly dividend of $300,000 or
at a rate of $1,200,000 per annum.
The Zela M. in Sheridan camp
has been bonded to an English
syndicate for $1,000,000.
A drift has been started following the footwall on the Blue Bell in
Summit camp. This claim with
the J. 8. was bonded last fall by
John Dorsey for $40,000. The
bond was taken over by the Lake
Shore and B. C. Copper Mining
and Developing company, a Chicago undertaking. Since then development has been actively pushed
in the prospecting of the Blue Bell.
A recent sample shipment of 540
pounds of ore to the Granby
smelter gave returns of $26.74 principally in copper.
BRIEF LOCAL MENTION
Blf Kootcoay   DcUjiIIod Now la  Ottawa.
Ottawa, April 10.���The largest
delegation which ever traveled the
distance of Canada to interview a
government arrived here to-day,
when 30 leading mining commercial and business men of tbe Kootenays came to Ottawa to lay before
the Government the requirements
of the mining industry. The members of the delegation are confident
that British Columbia is destined
to become the richest mining country in the world, but at present is
laboring under great disadvantages
on account of the lack of market
for. silver lead ores. This difficulty
has been brought about by tbe refusal of the American Smelting and
Refining company, a hundred-million-dollar trust, which controls
smelting and refining in America,
to purchase Canadian lead ores.
This makes silver-lead mining useless, as no revenue can be derived
from it. It is to provide a
market for the silver-lead ores that
the Kootenays asks assistance from
the Government. The delegation
is unanimously in favor of the
granting of tbe Crow's Nest charter.
Several other matters affecting the
mining industry will also be gone
into with the Govenment. The
mi ning men on the delegation rep
resent many millions of dollars.
The continued cool weather is
keeping the great army of prospectors out of the hills longer than
usual. During the storms of a
week or two ago, heavy snows fell
in the higher mountains, and it has
not been warm enough to decrease
its depth.
The Greenwood Miner comes to
hand now with eight pages of interesting reading matter and handsomely displayed advertisements.
In its present form it is the largest
and best appearing paper in the
Boundary country. Mr. E. Jacobs
has charge of the mining depart
nient which is a guarantee that it
will lie complete and reliable.
The dining, provision and sleeping cars of the bridge crew, which
had been standing on the sidetrack
at Fife, started on a run down
grade Tuesday, but came to grief at
the lower switch. The lady cook
was the only occupant of the cars
at the time, and left the car after
the manner of a flying squirrel just
in time to avoid the mixup that
took place when the cars went off
the track. Everything iu the cars
was badly spilled.
Traffic on the C. & W. has been
considerably interfered with during
the week. Thursday the noon mail
train was delayed four or five hours
hy a mud slide near Gladstone.
Yesterday a more serious obstacle
presented itself in the same vicinity, which delayed the same train
till 12 m. last night. Three spans
of the high bridge over Canyon
creek, 1-} miles northeast of Gladstone were destroyed by fire.
Mr. E. G. Robb, a student for
the ministry, arrived here from the
east Tuesday last, and will occupy
the pulpit of the Presbyterian
church during the summer. Gladstone will also he included in his
missionary field. There will be
services in  the church  to-morrow
both morning and evening, at 11
and 7 o'clock. The Sabbath school
will be held after the morning service.
Mr. Thos. Price, of Fife, along
with his other crops, is planting a
a lot of onions. Good onions command a good price everywhere the
year round.

POULTRY FARMING;.
During the fiscal   year ending
June 30,1901, there were imported
into British Columbia 346,617 dozens of eggs, and into the Yukon
335,065 dozens.   The   imports of
poultry into the province reached
$16,221 in value, and those into the
Yukon $8,852.   A local authority
on this subject says that these figure), must be multiplied by four in
order to-cover the shipments from
the East, that is, if we desire to get
*t the shortage of poultry products
in British Columbia. If this is correct, there is a market here and in
the Yukon for fully $500,000 worth
-of poultry products annually, with
a prospect of a steady increase.  We
do not think that, even with these
large importations   from Eastern
Canada and foreign countries, the
market is anything like fully supplied.   It ie certainly not well supplied,   for every   one   knows,   or
ought to know, that there are ti mes
when eggs can hardly be got fresh
for any price, and the poultry BUp-
ply is almost always inferior.   Yet
we would suppose that if there is
any line of farm work for which
this province is adapted, it is poultry raising.   We talk a great deal,
and very properly, about the value
of the timber industry, and we discuss ways and means of promoting
it.   Yet in tbe year mentioned, the
money which the lumber industry
brought into this province would
not very much more than pay for
what was sent out for eggs and
poultry, provided the local authority quoted is correct.   We think it
will occur to most people that conditions such as these are worthy of
attention.   We are not suggesting
that the government can do anything to promote poultry farming,
for there is probably nothing th ,t
it can do -except disseminate in
formation on the subject, and this
tbe press is Already doing.   But the
general public ought to know of the
existence of this great leak, and
possibly private enterprise will see
.that it iB stopped.���Colonist.
WHEN THE ICE BREAKS.
The various Yukon transportation companies are busily engaged
putting tbeir steamboats in readiness for traffic with the opening of
navigation oil the mighty river,
which it is expected will occur this
year about May 10. It is a great
deet that will be found plying tbe
golden stream. From White Horse
to the mouth of the Yukon, one or
more steamers are tied up in every
Available winter-quarter nook of
the river, and many others are
building.

John Connelly, whose body was
found, in a cabin near Wright's
Station, California, had rigged up
a guillotine and cut off his own
head. He swung a broad axe by a
rope in such a position that when
he cut a cord the axe fell across his
neck, which was stretched on a
block of wood conveniently located.
The plan worked effectively, as
death was instantaneous.
