Nelson, Maroh 8.—C. Pernau,
consulting mining engineer of
Newoastle-on-Tyne, and Oscar Le-
febvre, representing Henri Samuel,
banker, of Brussels, have returned
from a visit along the line of the
Crow's Nest railway. As a result
of their visit they have definitely
decided to locate a zinc smelter at
either Fernie or Frank. So far as
the ereotion of a lead stack is concerned, the idea of erecting it has
been abandoned, as they found it
impossible to secure contracts for a
stable quantity of silver lead ore
to keep the proposed smelter in
operation.
In speaking about the trip over
the Crow's Nest line and its results,
Mr. Fernau said: "We have just
returned from a week's trip ove;1
the Crow's Nest line, during
which we visited Frank, Fernie
and other points. We were muoh
struck with the enormouB quantity
of ooal to be found in the measures of the Crow's Nest pass, and
the really good quality of fuel
produced when compared with the
usual American product. We
have decided to ereot the zino
smelter at either Fernie or   Frank.
We oan only decide on which
one of these two points it will be
after our return from a visit to
Montreal. We will require from 30
to 50 acres for the enterprise. The
initial oost of the enterprise will be
$150,000, and it will employ from
60 to 75 persons, with prospects of
that number being increased to
four or five times as many by the
end of three years, Our idea in
locating the zino smelter where
cheap fuel can be had direot from
the mines is tbat it is oheaper to
haul the zino ore and the zino con-
oentrates to the fuel than it would
be to ho ul the fuel to where the zinc
is produced.
''As for the zino enriching plant,
i is to be located at Roseberry, on
slocan lake. Work on tbis plant
will be commenced just as soon as
soon as the snow leaves the ground.
Tbe plans and specifications are
all ready, and tbis will be the first
of our plans to take material shape,
although the zino smelter plant
will be constructed just as soon as
we can arrange the site.
"We failed to obtain the necessary contracts for lead ores to keep
the proposed lead smelter supplied
with ore, and at present we are not
considering the scheme. It might,
however, ba taken up later il the
conditions justified it."

Shanghai, Maroh 8.—The news of] spatoh, if suoh it is, is discredited
the bombardment of Vladiv stok is
well authenticated, although, from
here.   It is pointed that the last
authentic aocounts from Port Ar*
Russian accounts, there was little j thvr showed that no Russian war-
damage suffered by them, The j ship is or bas been outside the harbor to more than a reoonnoitring
distance. Moreover, there is no
credible reason why the Japanese
should land a foroe in the Shantung peninsula in wholly hostile
territory and a distance all the way
round the Gulf of Pechili from Port
Arthur. The Miaotu islands are
off Tenohau, aoross the straits of
Peohili from Port Arthur.
London, Maroh 8.—The military
expert of the Tims regards the
advice of Gen. Dragomiroff tact
Russia evacuate Port Arthur as
thoroughly Bound.
Gen. Dragomiroff, he says, is a
man of first class ability. No other
Russian Boldier possesses suoh
keen insight or suoh inborn genius
for penetrating the inmost heart of
a military question by the most direot road. Undoubtedly he wae
well acquainted with the conditions at Port Arthur and throughout the Far East, and gave his advice with cbaraoteristic bluutness.
"But," says the expert, "that a
preud military Empire Bhould consent to suoh a sacrifice wae not to
be expeoted for a moment. For
Napoleonio strokes and Napoleonio
decisions, the first requirement is
a Napoleon. Frederick at Prague
oould net decide to abandon tbe
siege, and fell back in the defence
with all his foroes. Napoleon at
Mantua left all the siege works
and batteries a prize to the enemy,
certain that if he oould meet tbe
relieving army in the field that
Mantua and all its possessed would
return to him in the natural course
ot events.
"Russia was not prepared to accept the full consequences of her
faults, and by olinging to the useless fortress from motivss of military vanity she is preparing for
herself an entanglement lar worse
than that of Ladysmith. with far
less exouee and with open eyes."

Japanese fleet seem to have got
away unscathed. From a private
telegram reoeived here from Yokohama it would seem that the object of the Japanese ii to get between the Russian naval squadron
basing upon Vladivostok and its
port, and as it is certain that the
Russians are hovering in front of
Possiet Bay in order to intercept
Japanese transports, thiemanoeuv-
er is successful. The Russian ships
: .ave a full allowance of ooal, but as
they can get into no ooaling harbor
in the northern sea they will either
have to risk a naval engagement at
sea or run for the south away from
the theatre of war, practically abandoning Vladivostok to its fate, as it
iB rumored that the Japanese have
already blown up the line between
it and Harbin and are marching
from Possiet Bay in order to entrench themselves on the Hue of
communioations.
New York, Maroh8—Mr. Allen,
the United States minister, according to the despatches from several
independent souroes, bas decided
to send United States marineB
from Seoul into the heart of the
gone of military operations in
Northern Korea, in order to pro-
teot some mines owned by Amerioan citizens.
The State department is astounded at the proposed aotion of the
minister and discredits the report.
Suoh an invasion would be unprecedented and would almost
inevitably result in a clash with
one or both of the opposing   foroes
London, Maroh 8— Despatches to
the London Daily Chronicle, purporting to oome (rom Shanghai,
state lhat from misslonery information reoeived there from Tengohau,
the northernmost point in the Shantung peninsula, the Japanese landed in foroe for three days, beginning on February 25.
Acoording to the Chronicle's alleged roundabout information, a
Russian warship engaged the Japanese vessels employed in the landing, the engagement taking place
between the Miaotu Islands and
Port Arthur. One Japanese vessel
was sunk as was the Russian warship. Chinese junks pioked up 200
Japanese from the water, but none

A CENTURY AGO.
During the past few days England has been told to beware of a
Continental combination againBt
hor. It is to be wondered at whether or no her monitors ever read
English history. A century ago
England was but the leading state
in three oountries and one was in
rebellion against her. Her population was something under fifteen
millions. Her credit had sunk to
50 oents on the dollar. She had
the greatest general the world ever
saw arrayed against her, wielding
at one time the armies not alone of
Franoe but practically of Europe,
even as its navies were in the hollow of his hand (what England bad
left 01 them). England was fighting that terrible war with almost
every nation. She fonght at Toronto, at Washington, at New Orleans,
in the West Indies, in Buenos
Ayres, in the Philippines, in Java,
in the Muuritius, in Mysore and
the Punjaub, as well ae over the
Dekhan with the fierce Mahrattas,
at the Cape, in Sicily, at Naples, at
the Balearic Isles, at Cartagena
and a hundred battlefields through
the Peninsula and France and the
Netherlands. England fought upon
every ocean throughout the wide
world, and through it all, though
the Bank of England suspended
cash payments for many a long
year, though the prioe of bread
went up until it. waa a costly
luxury, though not a family in the
country but mourned a son or
father, her pride or pluck never
failed, and the meteor flag streamed Uiumphani over every ocean
highway.
Today it is different.   It is no
longer little England, backed by a
sterile, struggling Scotland and a
few scattered and weak colonies, her
first born in arms against her and
her sister island openly rebellious,
but a worldwide Empire, in whioh
England is one of a family of nations, an England which is backed
by a proud ard wealthy Scotland,
whose armies  are  recruited with
valiant soldiers from the Emerald
Isle,   a   Great   Britain   which   is
nobly seconded by springing, lusty
young nations such as our own, as
Australia, New   Zealand and the
Cape, an Empire which includes
within it the mighty satrapy of India, with its hosts of gallant soldiers,  a   Dominion which  countB
within it a fifth of the world, nearly a third of its population, and
with the aid of her first bom, the
United States of Amerioa, one-half
of its wealth.   Truly Shakespeare is
now more than justified when he
declared: "Come the three corners
of the world in arms and we shall
shock them I"
tator has recently called the London Times to account foi the manner in which it has shewn up Russia and Russian methods.   It does
not say that the expose is not well
warranted by the facts, but it does
say that it  is unadvisable at the
present juncture of  affairB.   And
the present juncture of affairs, according to the Spectator, is that all
the nations of Europe, particularly
France and Germany, are united in
in a hatred of  the   Empire   and
would   like to see it overthrown
that RuBBia is eager lor an ix usev
to withdraw from tii" Esst am' pro_
voke an European   war in  which
thaNcouulry  standB to gain  and
not to lose, as at present.   But wero
this to prove to be the case it is unlikely that England's forbearance
from criticism would be a factor in
the making up the mind of collective Europe,   except,   indeed,   that
that forbearance were taken aB a
mark of pusillanimity.     The Speo
tator is evidently of the same opiu-
ion as Senator Albert J. Beveridge
whose recent book upon the Far
East, while scoiing the farm burn
ing of the British in South Africa,
forgetting Sherman's march through
Georgia, haB nothing to say about
Skobeleff  slaughtering 20,000 de
fencele-H men, women and children
at Qeok Tepe, or the horrible crime
committed by his favorites the Rus
sians at Blagovestchengk recently
when they drove an unarmed mob
of thousands of Chinese into the
Amur river, so that the river was
actually   dammed   by   the    dead
bodies.   This free and enlightened
citizen bas four lines recording the
deed and many a page excusing it,
pointing out that there has been
quiet  in   the   neighborhood   ever
since.   Ab if a neighborhood now
now existed!
When the press of Great Britain
fears to expose euch deeds as that
of Geok Tepe, of Blagovestcheusk,
of KiBhinefF, of Finland, and a
hundred other enormities, it will
fall from the high reputation it en
enjoys and whioh it would not enjoy if it followed the cowardly lead
of the Spectator.

CHAPTER XI (Continued)
Full of wonder and surprise, I
waited for a moneut for some sigrf
or show, if not of answering fire, at
least of reason; and then, as I
cheeked in full course my passionate pleadings, that wretched thing
before me burst, not into the tears
I expected of maidenly capitulation, nor into the proud anger of
offended virgins, but into a silly,
plebeian simper, whioh began in
ludicrous smothered merriment under the foldB of the lawn she held
•• across her faoe, and ended, amid
what appeared contending feelings,
in a rustic outburst of sobs and exclamations.
I was on my feet in an instant,
- all my wild love making dammed
baok upon my heart by suspicion
and surprise, and as I frowned
fiercely at that dim seen form under tbe distorting shadow of the
windows, it rose—to nothing like
Alianora's height—and stepped
out where the evening light better
better illumined us. And there
tbat poor traitress tore off in anger
and remorse the lace and linen of
a well born English maiden, and
stood revealed before me the humblest, the meanest seeming, and
the most despised kitchen wench
of any that served in that baronial
halll
You will guess what my feelings
were as this indignity I had been
put to rushed upon me, how in my
wonded pride I crossed my arms
savagely upon my breast, and
turned away from that poor, simpering, rustic fool, and clenched
my teeth, and swore fierce oathB
against that cruel girl who, in her
pride and insolence, had played
me this sorry triok. Wild and
bitter were the gusts of passion
that swept through my heart, and
all the more unruly since it was
by and for a woman I had fallen,
and there waa none for me to take
vengeance on.
In a few minutes I turned to the
wretched tool of a vixen mistress.
'Hast any explanation of this?' I
Sternly ashed, pointing to the disordered finery that lay glimmering
upon the floor.
The unhappy kitohenmaid nodded behind her tears and the
thick red hands wherewith she
was streaking two wet, round
cheeks with alternate hues of grief
and dingineBB, and put a hand into
her bosom and handed me a folded missive. I tore it open and
read, in prettily sorawled old Norman Frenoh, that oruel message:
This is to tell that namdess
knight who has notbtng to distinguish him but presumption, that
although tne daughter of an Eng-
glish peer must ever treat his suit
with the contempt it deserves, yet
will iho go so far as to seleot him
from among her father's vassalB
one to whom she thinks he might
very fitly unburden" his soul of its
load of 'love and fealty.'
Suoh wrf ' e missive, one surely
penned by as ungentle a hand
aa ev ministered to a woman's ■<•: t. I tore it into a bun
dred fragments, and then grimly
pointed my tradacer to the narrow
wicket in the remote wall leading
down by a hundred stony stairs to
the scullion places whence she had
come, She turned and went a
little way towards it, then came
sobbing baok, and bur t into grief
anew, and 'Alas! alasl Sir,' she
oried, 'this is the very worst Wk
lhat ever I was put tol Shame
upon Lody Alianora, and doub'<i
shame upon me for doing her behests.

MINOR MENTION
Smith Curtis is in the camp.
The City Council meets this
evening.
The Le Roi No. 2 concentrator
has shut down ior lack of oil.
C. 11. Hamilton has gone to Nelson to hold a court of revision.
A twelve pound boy was born to
Mr. and Mrs. K. D. Stinson on
Sunday laBt.
There were some pro ceedings be
fore the registrar in tbe Giant case
yesterday.
T. Q. Blackstock has returned to
the east. He will oome here more
frequently in future. The camp
will boom.
The Miner is quite fulsome to the
Board of Trade as newly constituted
Has a War Eagle man as vice-
president.
The rocks are already beginning
to show on the southern slopes of
Red Mountain, thanks to the three
days thaw.
Not a single laboring man is
placed on the executive of the
Board of Trade for the year to come.
Perhaps the War Eagle objected.
There have been 264 summary
convictions and 48 indiotable offences tried by the police magistrate
last year. Who says he is not earning his money. It is more than one
eaoh working day.
There are several shacks fallen
and falling around the camp. Were
the City Council to remove tbem or
see that they were repaired there
would be less danger to life and
fewer fire traps.
Word has been received in the
oilp of the death of Mrs. Henry
Roy at St. Johns, P. Q. The death
was unexpected and Ms. Roy is
prostrated, by the shook. The body
will be placed in a vault until after
his arrival.
President McNeill's report for
last year showed that Rossland is
producing nearly half of the mineral wealth of the provinoe. The
Miner buries and back-pages this
statement. It has a political spite
against the president which it
vomits editorially.
The first organization meeting of
the Laurier olub waB held last
evening at the rooms of the President, Dr. Sinclair. Theie were
about 17 present, eight new members being ballotted for. The officers at president selected aro the
Rt. Hon. Sir Wilfred Laurier, Honorary presidend, Dr. B. C. Sinclair,
President, Henry Roy, Vice President and George Urquhart, Trea-
suer. The Seoretary haB yet to be
nominated and a place of meeting
found for the sessions of the  club.
The next meeting will take pace
on Monday night next at Dr.
Sinolair's rooms.
The objeots of the olub in no
wise conflict with the Liberal Association of this oity and it may be
regarded in a manner as auxiliary
to it although such may not be
said about it offioialy. To jobs
the club it is necessary that the
would be member is inspired with
an admiration for Sir Wilfred
Laurier as one of Canada's great
statesmen and further that he is
willing to abide by the constitution of the Liberal Party and it
platform as laid down by the Convention of 1893, modified, of course,
by the subsequent enaolments of
Sir Wilfred and hiB party.
The rai son d'etre of the club
may be Baid to be free trade. But
it is not free trade in the English
sense. That is free trade in name
only according to the Laurier olub,
its real essence being free imports.
The Laurier club believes in free
trade and not in free imports and
will trade freely as is possible
compatible with a tariff for revenue
purposes only with the country
that will trade equally liberally
with it.
The annual meeting of the Western Fedeiation of Miners. District
No. 6, convenes today at Nelson.
Messrs. P. R. McDonald. Blair
ChiBholm, Rupert Bulmer, Angus
McLeod and Riohard Tenby left
last night for the Cily by the Lake
as delegates from the Rossland
branoh.
It is stated that an attempt will
be made, whioh may prove sucees-
ful, to get the Western Federation
to endorse the oandidature of a
Socialist for this Dominion constituency. It is understood that the
Rossland delegation, though more
or less favoring several planks of
the Socialist platform, are not in
favor of running a separate candidate on such a basis.

per oent. of the entire mineral output of the province, He also referred to the progress which bad

works and the developments which
they would inevitably lead to,
