Friends   Decline  to  Come to the Assistance jfW   B. B. Collins.
W. B. B. Collins was sent over
(o the Nelson jail last evening.
Under ordinary circumstances
there would have been no difficulty
in ohtaining the small bail asked
by the Crown, but Collins has not
many personal friends, being naturally a reticent man and his religious friends strongly resent the
position Collins' alleged conduct
has placed them in, and they declined to come to his assistance.
Collins will come up for trial at
the Nelson assizes which will commence on May 6th.

SURGICAL
OPERATION
Grafting Piece of a Dog's
Skull Upon a Human
'    Head.
Saginaw, Mich., April 23.—Physicians of the college hospital have
performed a remarkable operation,
that of grafting a piece of dog's
skull upon a human head. The
patient iB John Olberg of Kenton,
Houghton county. He is now recovering from an old atlliction.
01berg*B skull was fractured four
years ago and over the hole, which
was an inch and a half in diameter, there formed a foreign growth.
This pressed on the brain and
caused convulsions. When it was
decided to operate on Olberg the
doctors chloroformed a dog and removed a piece of skull. The piece
taken out was then implanted iu
the opening in Olberg's head.

BIG FIRE
AT BUFFALO
High Wind Aided Flames-
Four Firemen Were
Injured,
Buffalo, N. Y., April 23.—A
special to the Times from North
Tonawanda says the fire which
started on Oliver street early today
destroyed a steam laundry and
several houses.
A high wind prevailed. Two
firemen Charles Baker and John
Fanshaw, were overcome by heat
but will recover. Two others
were struck by falling timbers and were rendered insensible for  two hours.
A Record   Feat.
Corresponded   Only   and
Were Married by
Telephone.
Cincinnati,April 23.—A Dayton,
Ky., widow and a Hopkinsville
man will meet today for the first time
after having been married over the
long distance telephone in the
drug store of A. Goetz, Dayton.
They had never seen each other
before. The telephone charges
were $23. The courtship was carried on by correspondence.
Last week R. A. Brown performed a record breaking feat at
Volcanic City when he and his
men dumped in the river no less
than 70,000 feet of logs with three

It Should Fail.
FOUND VALUES
Reason  for the Jump in
War Eagle.
WASTE ROCK CARRYING VALUES
A Statement From   Toronto  Confirmed the Locating of the Ore
Body in Lower Working's.
Although no authentic details
are obtainable there seems to be
no doubt as to what caused the
recent quick advance in the stock
of the War Eagle company on the
Toronto market.
News from Toronto received in
Rossland last hight stateB that a
valuable body of reasonably high
grade ore has been disclosed in the
lower workings of the mine,
It is said that a second teBt of
some of the rock taken out of the
workings and thrown ou the waste
dump revealed the fact that the
supposed waste really contained
high values, and a further exa-n-
ination confirmed the fact beyond
question.
If this is the true story it is by
no means a new experience in
Kootenay mining, and several instances of a similar state of things
can be readily recalled by all mining men.
For the moment no official information is obtainable either here
or in Eastern Canada, but there
eems no good reason for supposing
that the ore body haB not been located.
Recalling the rumors current
last summer when the mine waH
closed down by the labor troubles,
the present news just fits in with
what was Baid to have been hopefully expected at that time.
The finding of values in the
lower workings of the War Eagle
will be welcome news, not only
here but all over Canada.
The stock of the company lias
just doubled in price as a result of
the latest news, and if the rumor
is officially confirmed in detail the
shares should stifiien and rise much
higher than they are at present.
Canadian Fruit in England.
Toronto.April 23.—W.A.Mackin-
non, Dominion fruit inspector,
leaves today for England to study
conditions under which Canadian
fruit reaches England and also
find out what improvements in
packing would cause Canadian
dian fruit to reach British merchants in better shape.
THE LATEST CURE.
What the
Railway  Arbitration
May do.
Bill
Hon. William Mulock has decided to do away with strikes on
railways. He has introduced a
bill that is understood to provide
for boarda of arbitration to consider and settle all troubles between
railways and their employes.
That sounds real well. But so
far Mi. Mulock's Labor Department has simply provided jobs for
a few pampered individuals, who
have had as much influence over
labor troubles as they have over
the weather.
They have, however, drawn salaries and acted as a pretext for the
government's claim to be the friend
of the working man.
Surely Mr. Mulock's labor trouble
panacea is not of the same variety.

DEFEAT
OF REBELS
Insurgent  Force   Capitulate   to  the  Government Forces.
Colon, Colombo, April 23.—The
German steamer steamer Hercynia
which left this port for Bocas del-
Toro, several days ago, with reinforcements of government troops
board, returned here this morning
and announced that Bocas del
Toro, which was captured by the
insurgents, April 18th was again
in possession of the government
owing to the timely arrival nf the
reinforcements on the Hercynia and
a threat of bombardment on the
part of the government gunboat
General Pinzon.
The insurgents at Bocas del Toro
capitulated to the government
forces.

MR. HILL'S PURCHASE.
The report haa been made very
frequently of late that Mr. J. J.
Hill, of railway fame, has purchased the Granby company's
holdings in the Boundary. The
Btory is told and retold with many
variations, but even if there is no
truth in the rumor there ia at leant
good reason why it might be true.
The Pioneer states that in 1901
the Granby company paid the C.
P. R. in freight charges the sum of
$380,000. For the current year
the company will probably pay
the railway nearly $600,000 in
freight charges, and this notwith
standing the fact that matte shipments to the east have been discontinued and only blister copper
90 per cent fine is now Bhipped to
the refineries.
With these figures in view the
importance to a railway company
of securing such a Bteadily increasing business can readily be understood.
THE TERMS.
There is unquestionably a strong
desire on the part of the British
government to have peace declared
in South Africa prior to tbe coronation festivities. For the cause
stated the government has apparently receded from its original position of unconditional   surrender.
When  thc matter waB uueulioued
in the houBe Mr Balfour was silent
respecting the terms offered by
Lord Kitchener and Lord Milner.
These must have been definite or
the Boer leaders would not have
dispersed to consult their commandos.
There is a general feeling that
the Boer chiefs felt assured that
their followers would favor a settlement, and that the continued pressure of military operations will not
tend to excite irritation and resistance.
Apparently the optimistic views
of Sir Charles Dilke, published
laBt evening, are shared by many
members of the house, who already
look upon the war as virtually settled.
There is a good deal of anxiety
as to the terms offered,but it is improbable that the British government haB materially changed the
original offer.
had been such would they have
had the courage to prefer honeBt
laborious misery to blameworthy
ease.
Finally Zola asked his listeners,
that, considering the useleBS, idle
lives they led, what right had they
to meddle with philosophy, literature and politics.
It is to the credit of the ladies in
question that, while some of them
demanded the invitation be with
drawn for the two remaining lectures, the majority refused to do bo.
As can easily be supposed the
lecture? nre the sensation of the
hour iu Paris.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Time is ripe for Hon. William
MuUck to rush to his deputy-mm
ister, W. L. M. King, to South Africa with instructions to mediate
away all existing differences b&
tween the Boer generals and Lord
Kitchener.—Toronto Telegram.
The Canadian arch at the coronation should not be all wheat and
pumpkins. There should be steel
in it from Cape Breton, and gold
from the Klondike, and ore from
British Columbia, and other evi
dences that we do more than follow
the plough and wield the woodman's axe.—Grand ForkB NewB.

The collapse of the Asphalt
Trust reveals the unsound basis on
which some of the gigantic trusts
are founded. The trust was capitalized with $60,000,000. The
fixed charges to run the combination were $2,150,000 per annum
The net earnings of all the com'
panies embraced amounted to $400,-
000 in two years.
ZOLA'S LECTURES.
Emile Zola, the famous French
author, was recently invited by an
aristocratic women's literary and
political club in PariB to deliver a
series of three lectures on literature
and politics. Zola surprised his
friends by accepting the invitation,
but at his firBt lecture he surprised
the Parisian "Bmart set" a good
deal more. He told the ladies that
a real knowledge of literature and
politics was only acquired by hard
work, and that as none of the audience before him were capable of
that, they knew nothing about the
Bubjects in question.
"You spend your days in gossip,
which is Btupid when it is not
wicked," declared the lecturer,
"and you grovel with astonishing
alacrity to gain admittance into
circles above your own and cannot
conceal your assinine contempt for
people supposedly below your set."
Warming to hiB subject the author
declared to his thoroughly astonished audience that it was a mere
accident of birth that they were
not factory girls or dry goods saleswomen and demanded that if they
Citizen and Country, the social
reform paper of Toronto, ia to be
published from Vancouver. R. P.
Pettipiece. it is understood, has
secured a controlling interest in
ths paper and will take the position of managing editor. G.
Weston Wrigley will remain with
the paper. Mr. Wrigley is now on
his way from Toronto. THe name
of the publication will be changed,
but the same policy will be followed.
Workingmen have the right to
organize for the purpose of securing higher wages or shorter hours
of labor, or otherwise improving
their relations with their employes,
and have the right to Btrike where
their object is not to gratify malice
or inflict injury upon others, but
to secure better terms of employment for themselves. This is the
ruling of the New York Court of
Appeals in a case decided recently.
The name adopted for the new
movement is the Provincial Progressive ''arty. The name is good.
The party henceforth will not be
restricted to trades unions and
socialist bodies for its support, but
will be broad enough in its principles and and motives to afford
common ground for everyone who
aims to shut off the land-grabbing,
monopoly-giving, law-breaking aggregation of grafters which now
masquerades aB a government in
British Columbia, and substitute
instead a legislature of level-headed public-spirited men who will
conduct public business for the
benefit of the public. Then we
will have stable, progressive government.—Sandon Paystreak.

FIGURES TALK.
The fi th annual meeting of the shareholders
of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal company was held
in Toronto on March 7th.
The net profits of the year after paying all
operating expenses and all charge of every kind,
amounted to $207,848.39. After paying a dividend at the rate of ten percent per annum, a balance of $28,142,.89 was carried forward to the
credit of profit and loss.
This company's assets are their coal minus
and the townsi'e of Fernie. Four years ago thia
company had no transportation facilities, and their
stock sold aa low as eleven cents per share. Today their stock is selling at $90.
The Similkameen Valley Coal company, limited, assets are coal mines, timber, water power,
agricultural and horticultural land, city water
works, electric light plant and the townsite of
Ashnola, surrounded by the following resources:
gold, copper, silver, lead, iron, lime, fire clay,
platinum, and a fine stockraising country, and it
is the smelting center of the Similkameen valley, with a climate that is all that could be asked,
You can secure an option on this company's stock
by paying 10c per share down, and ten cents per
month until fully paid, wi h non-forfeiture clause.
This price is subject to twenty-five cents advance
without notice as soon as transportation is assured.
The present price is $1.10 per share. Oo not wait
until it is too late, hut get in on the ground floor,
and make a handsome profit. A purchaser of
one hundred shares now, may gain a profit of
$8,990. Crow's nest shares as an example. Tbis
would be a fair profit on an investment of ten
dollars per month for eleven months. We invite
the fullest inspection of the company's affairs by
intending purchasers. For further information

THE BAR KICKED
Attempt to Do Away With the Local
Office.
According to the provincial estimates the  office  here of deputy
registrar of the supreme court was
wiped out of existence.
A hurried meeting of the local
bar waB called yesterday afternoon
and a strong protest was wired to
Victoria it is believed with the
desired effect.
The office is now filled by the
registrar of the county court, and
on many occasions the office at the
court house would be closed up
during the sittings of the county
court, and at other times if there
were no deputy-registrar.
The bar were unanimous yesterday that the office should be maintained, and so informed the government and Smith Curtis, M.P.P.

that on Saturday next the Hall
Mines at Nelson will close pending
further instructions from company
head quarters in London.

has made no official statement and
it is said, does not know what the
future policy of the company will
be.
The closing of the mine will not

is a customs one, and it is stated
that the plant will be kept running
as usnal.
General sympathy is expressed
for the Hall Minea shareholders
who have made Buch a plucky fight

hoped that work may bu again resumed.
