City Engineer Van Buskirk is  Not
Professionally in Love w!th
Plan.
The City Engineer reports that
are normally not more than 100
inches 0, water to be found in Trail
Creek. If the concentrators above
divert sufficient water into the
creek it is possible 500 inohes may be
obtained. This has yet to be done.
He therefore reoommends that the
city pay on 100 inohes of water and
no more and he has been instructed to apply at Nelson for this
amount on the original reoord if
possible.
Tbe instructions given to Major
Van Busbirk by tbe late mayor
bave issued in the form of a plan
whereby 100 inches of water could
be diverted near the Valley House
from Trail Creek, conducted a
mile below, securing a fall of 300
feet, and thus generate about 100
to 150 horse power.       * '   ,
On the other hand it is maintained thnt it would take about
700 horse power to run the eleotric
lighting of Roesland on the present
basis where, by an excessive oharge
for the lights, much fewer are used
than would be the oase if the rate
were cheaper.
Power might be obtained from
the West Kootenay or the Cascade
Power companies and figures are to
be got from .both.

Vancouver, Feb. 24—Mr. James
Breen, one of the best known and
most suooessful smelter men on the
oontinent, and who, with Mr. H
C. Bellinger, established the smelter at Crofton, on Vanoouver Island,
is making arrangements to either
purchase or build a smelter on
Boundary creek in the Boundary
district. Mr. Breen oame over
from Viotoria yesterday morning
and lefl iu the afternoon for the
interior.
A few years ago Mr. Breen secured control of the Dominion Copper company, and [spent much
money in developing the properties
of the oompany. He then figured
on the erection of a smelter for the
treatment of the Dominion Copper
company ore, and went so far as to
seoure an option on a smelter site
at the mouth of Eholt oreek, about
one and a half miles above Greenwood. He went to Toronto to discuss the projeot with the officials
of the company and an agreement
oould not be reaohed. Mr Breitn
then turned his attention to other
interests, and the mines of the company   remained  idle some  time.

St.   Petersburg,   Feb.  25.—The 1 ed herself with glory.
wildest rumors have been afloat
here regarding the reported Japanese repulse at Port Arthur, but up
to midnight nothing official could
be learned
It is reported unofficially that
the Japanese while attempting to
land at Pigeon bay, lost two cruisers and two transports.
St. Petersburg, Feb. 25—It is
officially announoed from Port Arthur that four battleships and two
Japanese transports have been
sunk in a fresh attack on fort Arthur.   The attack was repulsed.
Paris, Feb. 25—The Russian
embassy here has received a communication to tbe effect that a Japanese squadron duriog tbe eight of
February 24th tried to block the
entrance of Port Arthur, at the
same time attacking Russian warships there with torpedo boats and
trying to set them on fire. The
Russian battleship Retzivan, supported by the coaBt batteries, repelled this attack, forced the Japanese to retire and succeeded in
eiuking four of their vessels.
The news of the Russian victory
was posted in the lobbies of the
chamber of deputies tin-' the Ben
ate during the sitting today, and
caused great enthusiasm.
Praie, Feb. 25—A despatch to
the Ha vas agency from Port Arthur '
says four Japanese cruisers and
two Japanese transports bave been
sunk in a fresh attack on Port
Arthur. The dispatch adds that
the attack was repulsed aud the
Russian battleship Relzivan cover-
Chefoo, Feb. 25.—The steamer
Governor JaeBcbi, while passing
Port Arthur at 3 o'clock this morning, heard heavy firing in that
direction. There is a persistent report abroad that several Japanese
warships have been disabled, but
so far it iB unconfirmed.
Another steamer passing Dalny
about the same time that the
Governor Jaescei was off Port
Arthur, reports that she heard no
firing. Thirteen warships are said
to have passed WeiHaiWei today heading east. There were 10
ships in the original fleet.
St Petersburg, Feb. 25 It appears that tbe announcement from
Port Arthur that four Japanese
battleships and two Japanese trans
ports had been sunk in a fresh attack on Port Arthur, was given out
1O5 official by mistake. There iB nu
official confirmation here of a Russian victory at Port Arthur. Both
the report of the sinking of the
Japanese ships and the denial that
the announcement was official were
sent out by the semi-offioial telegraph bureau, the Russian News
ageucy.
Shanghai, Feb. 25 -The Japanese army corps landed at Chemulpo, Korea, totalling about 30,000,
have alreany been deployed between Seoul and Piugyang. Ihe
advance guards are even northward of the latter place. Owing to
tbe partial thaw, the roads are
bad and the transportation of provisions and war munitions is most
difficult.

GOOD TIMES.
The Nelson Newe declares that
the good times are not coming, they
are already here. It shows that
the Providenoe haB deolared a div
dend, the Rambler-Cariboo like
wise, the Granby company and the
Le Roi No. 2 and theCentre Star,
Le Roi and War Eagle are all
showing profits.
Too little consideration is taken
as to tbe manner in whioh the majority of the mines of the Kootenay
bave been treated. Take the Le
Roi, the Le Roi No. 2, the Centre
Star, the War Eagle, the Granby
and many another mine of like
nature. Facts show that theie
mines in order to deal with lie
huge bodies of refractory ore have
had, at a heavy expense, tosche
the question of treatment of tbe
ores, have had to install heavy and
expensive machinery at the cost oi
millions of dollars and have had to
do this out of the profits of tne
mine, or by running it into debt.
If the profits have been paid immediately, then the shareholder?
bave been without dividends. If
borrowed money has paid the bill
then the profit in after years will
have to pay back the loans, and
the shareholders will be without
dividends until the borrowed
money is replaced. The Le Roi,
to put up its plant and to purchase
its smelter, has spent within the
past Jfour years a million and a
half dollars. This now has been
practically repaid, and the mine is
now getting iu a position co pay
dividends.
What would be thonght of a
shareholder in a hotel company
buying a Buitable building, but
negleoting to provide the furniture
and expecting the hotel to procure
furniture out of its profits, and yet
pay a dividend? That eminent
financier would be looked upon is
a lunatic, but wherein is he worse
than the shareholder in the mineB
of the Kootenay?
manner. Such a word as Canton
ia hopelessly Anglicized, and the
correct spelling, Kwangtung, would
no more be recognizable than
Kalkhuttha for Calcutta, although
both cities pronounce their nameB
in the manner indicated. The addition of "fu" or "foo" (city) and
"kiang" (river) ia unnecessary aud
merely prolongs the agony, espeo
Lally aB journalese often has it the
■'City of Chaoohaofu" or the
•'Yangtsze KiaDg River."
NameB of individuils an'd;ff"r-
ent, as the first sy'lablo invariably
indicate the surname uf the person,
whereas the other two are hie giv»n
names at different periods of bis
existence. The first will never
change, but the second and third
may several times. Hence it is ae
oorreot to print Prince Li's name
as Li Hung Chang, as to set in
type John Henry Smith. But
Lady Smith is not printed aB two
words, when the famous town that
stood the'memorable siege is meant.

NOTE AND COMMENT.
The Spokesman-Review speaks
of Newohwang commanding the
railroad to Port Arthrr. Now
Newchwang and. Port Arthur are
the two ends ol the two lineB, both
running from Mukden. If Newohwang passed out of the hands of
the Russians as far as the railroad
was concerned, there would still be
through communication from
Vladivostok, Harbin or Mukden to
Port Arthur.
The young man of today is the
best poBted individual on earth
concerning Btyle, fit and workman
ship. He knows when a Bhoulder
is built right and he looks closely
to thei lapels [and the eet of the
collar. If a garment iB modelled on
graceful lines and hangs well he is
pleased. That is lhe reason we

CHINESE  NAMES.
The general publio is muoh confounded by the practice too prevalent in English countries of printing Chinese names with a capital
for each syllable. Hongkong and
Shanghai, Amoy and Swatow are
usually printed as one word instead
of Hong Kong, Shang Hai, Swa
Tow and A Moy, and the rest ol
the Chinese names of places should
be spelt as one word. The reason
of the mistake is that the Chinese
language is monosyllabic and each
syllable has some signification
But if it comes to that most other
names of whatever language can
be analyzed in muoh the same way.
Hong Kong means Fragrant
Streams and Swa Tow, Bank Tail
(the tail of the bank), but there is
no more reaeon why they should be
spelt in syllables than for doing
the same with West Minster or
Grace Church. The average British Columbian or New Zealander
would be Fomewhat surprised to
find bis newspaper spelling those
