Nelson, Feb. 29.—Thomas G.
Blackstock, of the War Eagle-Cerj-
tre Star and St. Eugene Mining
Companies, arrived in the city yesterday and iB quartered at the
Strathcona. Mr. Blaokstook's particular mission here is to endeavor
to devise ways and means for scouring a market for the lead output of
the St. Eugene mine in East Kootenay. It is claimed for this great
property that it can output more
lead than any other silver-lead
mine in the world, if it were operated to the limit of its capacity, as it
has great reserves of ore. In the
evening Mr. Blackstock held a conference with James Cronin, manager and large stockho der in the St.
Eugene, A. C. Garde, manager of
the l'ayne; W. A. Galligher, M. P.,
and Bruce White, of the Slooan
Star. It wae in reference to the
best means of marketing the lead
output of the St. Eugene and other
mines of this vioinity. At the conclusion of the conference Mr. Blaok-
stock was seen by a reporter of the
Daily News and asked what his
misbion in this country was.
"As I stated in Toronto before I
started for the west," he replied,
"I am looking for a market for the
lead output of the St. Eugene. I
believe we will be able to find such
a market and I have oonferred with
James Cronin, the manager of the
mine and others in relation to it.
Nothing has assumed definite form
and proportion as yet. I believe,
however, that matters will so eventuate that I wiil be able to give
you something definite for Tuesday's issue of your paper. That is
all that I care to say along these
lines at present."
In speakiDg about conditions in
the west Mr. Blackstook said:
"There is a widespread belief in the
east that the business conditions
are improving in the west. I myself feel that if we handle oor
opportunities right and do no loose
our heads we will have a revival.
I have kept in the closest touch
with conditions here for the past
seven yearB and it is the first time
that I have felt that way. We
must not get too high notions, but
adjust ourselves to bard pan, to
actualities as they are. We are,
j I believe, moving in the right di-
, rection and thiugs are so shaping
themselves that prosperity is with
in measnreable distance, provided,
as I said before, we do not lose our
heads."

Saturday night that his official answer to Russia over the expedition
into"Tibet waa that Great Britain
would allow no other power than
herself to have predominance in
Tibet. The deolaration is on a
par with the deolaration some
months ago that any power seeking
territory or influence on the Persian gulf must first reokon with the
Empire in arms and bas caused
even a greater commotion in European diplomatic ciroles as showing
that Great Britain is ready to pick
up the gaunlet of war if any nation
chooses to throw it down.
France haa ohosen to consider
the definition of Great Britain's
polioy as a menace to her own
possessions in the East and has
seut out powerful reinforcements
to Cochin China. It is said in
offioial ciroles in Paris that the
reason of the prouncement is because of the reoent territorial and
diplomatic acquisitions whioh
Franoe has lately succeeded in
obtaining from Siam. French
territory now to the north of Siam
presses closes on the eastern boundary of the Indian Empire, threatening the old trade route existing
through the passes of the Shan
hills from China into India via
Burma and Siam
It is asserted in London that the
real reason of the advance into
Tibe was not the Tibetan diplomatic difficulty whioh was supposed
to have settled by a speoial com
missioner, James Hart, brother of
Sir Robert Hart, Direotor General
of the Chinese Foreign Customs, in
1886, during bis visit to India, but
whioh agreement was not held to
by the Tibetans in whose name
James Hart, as the specially accredited envoy from Peking, was
speaking. This difficulty has been
existent for a generation and advantage was taken of it to press the
Tibetan expedition with a view of
drawing off Russia's attention frqm
Manohuria and Korea and bo helping the Japanese.
Tbe Indian Empire by the connecting of its Burmese system of
railways with the purely Indian
system has brought the whole of
her magnificent army in striking
distance of Yunnan on the couth-
west oorner of China. To the north
of this lies Tibet, lying on the western boundary of China and flanking its wealthiest province.Szchuen,
(three neighbors, Russia in Manohuria to the north, Great Britain
in Tibet and Burma to the west
and southwest and Franoe in Co-
ohin.China.between Burma and the
sea to the south. Should Russia
invade China from the north Great
Britain would be in a position to
do tne same from the southwest,
just as long as the French in Cochin China were not sufficiently
numerous to have to be reckoned
with. Tbe Empire would have the
best of the three powers as she is
working on a base olose by with an
army, not counting European reinforcements of more than half a
million of men on a peace footing.
St. PeterBburg, Feb. 29—The
revolutionary societies of Ruasia.are
doing their best to counter against
the officially inspired patriotio demonstrations their idea is that if
the war is proved a failure through
lack of patriotio endeavor then the
Tsar can be called upou to abdicate with some chance of suooess
by the Nihilists.
Mosoow, Feb. 29.—It is stated
that disease and cold is decimating the Russian soldiers en route to

Seoul, Feb. 29.—Wiju has been

Washington, Feb. 29.—Tbe Russian press are bitterly attacking
the government of tbe United
States for entertaining tbe Japanese proposal tbat they be allowed
to land a cable at Guam as to connect with the oable and telegraph
system of the United States. If no
suoh connection were permitted
and the Russians were to succeed
in outting the main Japanese oable,
Japan would be isolated irom the

THE   TWO   PER   CENT   TAX
There is one argument in favor
of the repeal of the two per cent
tax, whioh the Vancouver Province
usee, which is that the establishment of this tax has caused eastern
capitalists to advanoe it as a reaBon
against the investment of further
capital in a province where one-
fifth of the net profits of a company
are swept away by the government.
This argument was also used by
John Houston as a reason why the
Kootenay press should not draw
attention to the iniquities of the
tax. However, this is no valid
reason for silence on the part, of tbe
press, inasmuch as the press being
Bilent on this point might as we)!
be silent on others. The reform'
that are wanted in Kootenay art-
for the" Bake of the peoplej who
dwell therein, and not for the sake
of the outsiders, who are concerned
in a lesser degree.
nent,   on   the  unpreparedness  ol
Great  Britain    when    Bhe   found
found   herself   confronted   with  a
war in South Afrioa.    It was assumed (by such men as John Brisbane Walker of the Cosmopolitan)
that other nations would not be so
unprepared ancl talked of Ilia inevitable   thrashing    the   Empirt
would get were she at war with a
flrBt claBB power, especially such a
first olats power as Russia.   And
the talk, as a recent issue of the
Cosmopolitan shows, still assume**
much similar nor,Beni-e.   Thero is
no doubt  that Great   Britain  was
unpiepared.   There is no doubt to
the historical student that Great
Britain has nearly always been unprepared. JBut theBe things~are a
matter   of  comparison.     Ab at s

WANTED, A PARTY.
During the past few years tbe
Progressives, the Liberals and the
Conservatives have each drawn up
a platform and the province is but
little better for any one of tbem.
The fact of the matter iB that the
average politioian does not in the
least endeavor to   live up to the
spirit of the platform on whioh* he
is [supposed to stand,   His   chief
endeavor would seem to be to find
a way in which he can, more or
less honorably in his own estimation, wiggle out of it.  Really what
should be done, only it will never
be, so hidebound is the party spirit
of the present generation, is to draw
up a platform for Kootenay.   We
Kootenaians know what we want,
and if we all joined together as a
Kootenay party, regardless of the
ties binding us to Progressive or
Liberal or Conservative or Socialist
parties, the strongest government
at the Coast oould not defeat our
gaining our desires.   A Btep in the
right direction was the formation
of the Interior Liberal Association.
But the  name Liberal is fatal to
any Conservative joining that association.     Then let the Conservatives form another Interior Association of their own, and let the other
aspirant parties do likewise.   Then
let them all join together and select
a platform and one on whioh all
oan Btand.   It will   be wonderful
how very similar tbe platforms of
the various   Interior Associations
would be and how many things
they all  have in common.   Then
let candidates be ohosen who will
always vote together where Kootenay is concerned.    But of cours
Ihis idea is chimerical.    It is good
sound sense just the same, but is
not   practical   politics.    It would
seem   to   follow,   therefore,   that
practieal   politics are not always
horse sense.

Africa is not.to be compared for a
moment with the complete disorganization of the Russian army
and navy shewn in and off Manohuria. Of course the comparison
oan now be shifted to Germany and
Franoe, but the oomparison has
oome to late, Great Britain has set
ber household in order nnd the
Empire has hundreds of thousands
of trained fighting men today
whioh she had not a few years ago,
and in the case of need will show
that her unpreparedness was in
deed but comparative, when that ol
ber enemies comes to be considered.

CHAPTER X. (Continued)
Now, if the elder sitter had won
me at first sight, my feelings were
still more wonderful to the other.
If the elder had the plaoid sovereignty ot the eveniog star, Isobel
was like the planet of tbe morning.
From head to heel she was in
white. Upon her forehead her
fair brown hair was stained blaok
under a coverchief and wimple aB
olorless aB the hawthorn   flowers.
This same fair linen, in the newest fashion of demurity, oame down
her cheeks and under her ohin,
framing her faoe in oval, in pretty
mockery of the steel coil of an
armed knight. Her dress below
was of the whitest, softest stuff,
with long hanging sleeveB, a won
drous Blender middle drawn in by
a silk and silver cestus belt made
like a warrior's sword wear, and
a skirt that descended in pretty
folds to her feet aud lay atwining
about them in comely amplenees.
She was as supple bb a willow
wand, and tall and straight, and
her face when in a moment she
turned on me—was Wondrous plea-
Bint to look at—the very opposite
of her eister's -all pink and white,
and honestly ashine with demure
fun and merriment, which constantly twinkled in her forecast
eyes, and kept the pretty corners
ol her mouth at ditching with
covert, ill-suppressed, unruly
smiles. A fair and tender young
girl indeed, made for love and
gentleness 1

three sprang up two fatal passions.
Read on, and you shall see.
CHAPTER XI
Now, when that fair young English girl, al her father's voice turned to acknowledge my presence-
thinking it waB some other new
koight of the many who oame there
every hour, she lifted her eyeB to
miue—and then, all on a sudden,
without rhyme or reason, she started baok and blanohed whiter than
her own wimple, and then flushed
again, equally unacoountably, and
fell atiembling and staring at me
in a wondrous fashion. Bhe oame
a step forward, as through she
would greet some long looked fer
friend, and then withdrew—and
half held out her hand, and took it
back, the while the color oame and
went upon her faoe in quick
flushes, and,stirred by some stran ge
emotion, her bosom rose and fell
under go'den cestus and the lawn
with the stress of her feelinge. The
sudden storm, howevert invoked,
shook that sweet fabric most
mightily. There, in that very
minute, it seemed—there, in that
me, but a gaudy gallant a little
more thoughtful looking, perhaps
than those she often saw, yet. all
the same, naught but a stranger
galloot, unknown and nameless to
her—moved by some affinity within-us, just as tbe alchemist's magic
touoh converts between two breaths
one elixir in his crucibles to another, so, before my eyes, I saw in
that fair girl's pallid faoe love flush
through her veins aud light her
heart and eyes wilh a responding
blush.   ,
And I—I the unhappy, I the sor
row bestowerVas I saw her first,
what c t all things in this wide
world Bhould I think of- what
should leap up in my mind as [
perked my gilded Bcabbard and
bowed low to the polished oake
floor in my glittering Plantagem
finery—what vision Bhould cm"
to me in that latter day ball,
among those mandolin-fingering
courtiers, before that oostly rai-
mented maiden, the fair heiress of
a thousand years of care and gentle
living, that girl leaning frightened
and shy upon the arm of her strong
father like a soft white mist cloud
in the shadow of a mountain—
