Byrnes, the auctioneer, a pioneer of
British Columbia, ha"ing been in Car-

bsou confident expectation for a considerable time of a rich strike on Granite Creek, but this discovery is said to

Last With Charges of Bribery
and  Corruption-
The Hon. J. Fred Homo, member of

Riding, and Provincial Seorettry of
Miues, is not yet ont of the woods.
A protest has been entered against bis
election with William MoCundlish as
petitioner, tbe papers being filed at
Victoria last. Saturday. Charges of
corruption and bribery are named, the
protest being based upon two or three
specified cases One of the instances
cited shows where Mr. Hume promised
a citizen of Nelson a position ill exchange for the support of tbe citizen
in question and also where Mr. Hume,
signed a letter which may count very
badly against him. It is quite likely
that the petition will uot be heard by

more, bnt those who are interested
claim that Mr. Hume certainly will
be uuseuted. This of course remains
to be seen. Tbe petition has been
filed ana thu Full Court miist do the

(lays ngo among the rocks on tbe shore
about four miles west of El Morro as
those of Admiral Villamil, who commanded the Spanish torpedo boat destroyers in the naval battle whioh resulted in the destruction of Admiral
Oervera's squadron. General Wood
went in a tug to investigate personally
as to tbe truth of the report that the
body of a Spanish officer had been
found, tied in an arm ohair at tbe
point designated. The report proved
well-founded. Nearly opposite the
point where the wrocked torpedo boat
destroyer Plutou lies, General Wool
found au arm chair with ropes around
it, a skull, bones on the ground and
the ragged remnants of the uniform of
a captain in the Bpuiiih navy. It
was evident that the buzzards bad
stripped the bou s of il-sh Ir is un
derstood here that Admiral ViHnuiil
was taken ashore from the Plulou in a

aud the supposition is that he died

body being left abandoned among the
rocks, where it remained undiscovered
until a few days ago.

AT ACTION OF OTIS
Stops Negotiations For Release of Prisoners.
WOULD AID INSURGENTS
General Bios Sands a Dispatch to His
Government Urgine it to Appeal to Powers-
London, Maroh 18.���It is reported
from Manila that General Otis has ordered a discontinuance of tho negotiations between the Spanish General Rios
and Aguinaldo for the release of the
Bpanish prisoners on the payment of a
heavy indemnity, as such payment
would strengthen the Filippiuo oause
by replenishing the insurgent treasury.
NEWS IN MADRID.
Midrid, March 18.���General Rios.
the Spanish commander in the Phillip-
nines, in au official despatch acquainting the Government with the fact that
M jor General Otis bas stopped the
negotiations for the release of the
Spanish prisoners iu the bands of the
rebels says: "I protest in the name
of humanity and believe the time has
arrived to appeal through the consuls
to the good offices of   the   powers.''
The despatch says also: "I am told
���hat the Filipinos are at war with
be Americans aud tbat the prisoners
���aimot be ransomed for mouey, as that
would improve tbe position of the in-
���infgents. In view of my situation
between lhe Americans und tho Filipinos, I await the orders of the Government.
A copy ot tbe despatch waa sent immediately to Senor Silvela, the Premier, who had a long conference with
General Polavioja, Minister of War.
Both admit tbe gravity of the situation and the despatch will be submitted to the Cabinet Council tomorrow.
The Government is perplexed at seeing no clear solution of the difficulty.
At the Ministry of War this evening
it was said that no reply will be sent
to General Rios, pending the Cabinet's decision. The plan of negotiating with Aguinaldo direct, without
reference to Washington has been
abandoned, however, and Senor Silvela in the capacity of Minister of
Foreign Affairs will probably not
await the decision of the Cabinet regarding tho despatch before communicating with the American Government.
UNFORTUNATE    ALLAN     LINE.
One of the Big New Boats is Prob-

on Gamut Rock ledge, near Yarmouth,
aud is in u bad position. Two of h er
holds are reported full of water. The
disaster occurred during a thick fog
early yesterday morniug. She was
bound for Liverpool, and her cargo
consisted of 100,000 busbelB of wheat
and -1,000 tons of Onturio cheese, hams
and a general lino of merchandise.
There were 18 horses and 400 sheep
aboard. In the cabin there woro 20
passengers, eight in the intermediate
aud 22 iu tho stoerage. During the
night the wathei was hazy and they
proceeded slowly and cautiously, carefully looking out for buoys or land.
Suddenly breakers woro seen aud at
once tho vessel struck forward, but
quite gently, the shock not awakening
the passengers. She struck at 3:40
iu the morning. Thore was uo confusion and all orders were obeyed with
coolness aud promptness. As the en-
ginos would not take her off, the captain decided to wait for daylight, and
send ashoro   for   assistance.    The   sea
was comparatively smooth. About 6
o'clook the chief offloer and purser
wero despatched to convey the news to
tho land. Tbey proceeded to Tusket-
wodge,  tho  nearest   telephone  office,
and communicatod with the local
agents ot the Allan line, and tugs were

RUSSELL THE MAN
WILL SUC0EED   LORD  HERSCHELL
ON COMMISSIONS.
The  Times Says That England's Ohief
Justice Will be the Government's Choice-
Londou, March 14.���The Times says:
"The Govsrnment will probably appoint Baron Russell. of Killoweu,
Lord Ohief Justice of Eugland, to succeed the late Baron Herschell on the
���Toi*"" V ;V* Commissiia and the A-
glo-Venezuolnn Commission. This
would be a highly advantageous selection, while his being a Catholic would
make him persona grata to Sir Wilfrid
Laurier and a large portion of the Canadians. Though it would be difficult
to spare him from his important functions at home, it would not be easy
to suggest an alternative appointment. "
A   BIG    SMELTING     COMPANY.
Three Powerful Concerns Enter Into a
Syndicate.
New York, March 13.���The agreement by whioh a majority of tbe lead-
lug smelters und refining companies in
this country consolidate under the title
of the "American Smelting and Refining Oo. " was issued today. The underwriting syndicate consists of Lew-
isohn Bros. Moore and Schley, and H.
M. Roberts, a Standard Oil magnate.
The new company will have a capitalization of $65,000,000, half of which
will be in preferred stock and tho other
half in oomraon stock. Ouly oue cou-
oeru of importance, M. Guggenbeimer

All offorts to bring them into the combine have thus far proved futile.

We have always held that it would
be unreasonable for tbe colonies tu ask
the British taxpayer to reverso his
whole flsoal policy for the purpose of
developing or encouraging this, that
or the other colonial industry. As bo
has for the last fifty years turned a
deaf ear to pleas of that kind when
made on behalf of classes in bis own
country, it is scarcely likely that be
would listen to them when mado on
behalf of classes in another country,
even though tbat oountry was a purt of
tbe empire. To preteud to ad vise him
to do so for his own sake was apt to
have an ambiguous souud. He was
surely the best judge of what was good
for him. If, howevor, ou his own
motion, and for tho furtherance of
purely British interests, he wero disposed to lav au impost ou wheat, it
would not be improper for tho colonies
to speak ont. Canada has led tbe way
in establishing the principle of inter
imperial preference, and could without
presuming souud the home Govern
ment on a still further extension of
the idea. We hnve by no means ex
hausted the distance which wo might
be disposed to go iu the direction of
preferences to tbe motherland, und
there can be little doubt that if once
duties on grain were resorted to as a
means of revonue the probability of
gottiug a preference for colonial grain
in the markets of the United Kingdom
would be greatly increased. To gain
so desirable an end wo may be sure
that every influence in Canada would
at the proper time bo brought to boar

pioes so memorable a change took

Rome, March 18.���The Tribune as>
serts that Italy has not delivered her
ultimatum to China. On the contrary
the Italian Governmeut has discovered
the action of Siguor Martiuo'regnrding
the Sau Mun Bay affair aud has recalled him, ooniiding Italy's interests
to the British minister at Pekin, Sir
Claude Macdouald, until tbe suooessor
of Siguor Martiuo arrives there. The
news of Siguor Martino'sj recall oame
as a complete urprise to the public. It
is understood that bis note asking
China to re-accept the first Italian note
was regarded by the Italian Government as too conciliatory but ] the general belief is that China will interpret
the call as a sign of weakness, Connt
Orfini, Italian Minister at Tokio, will
be appointed to succeed Siguor Martiuo.
ENGLAND STRIKES OUT.
London, March 13.���The Shanghai
correspondent of the Daily Mail says:
"The Chineso here roport that Great
Britain has seized Miatoao Islands,
opposite Port Arthur in tho Strait of
Pechili, noith of Teng Chan Fu.in the
northwest portion of the Shan Tnng
Peniusula.''
THE   VERY     BIGGEST     HOUSE.
"Ole Olson" a Big   Attraotion  at the
Nelson   Opera   House.
Al. E. Markham's"Ole Olson, Jr.,"
played at the Nelsou Opera House last
night to the biggest house in the history of the theatre. It was a good
show, too, and Mr. Markham convinced
everyone that he is a leader in the
Swedish dialect work. He has the
advantage of being able to speak the
Swedish language and has spent several years in Sweden Btudying the
ways aud characteristics of the Swede.
He has also a very good voice and his
songs took well. The play is of hit
own composition and was put through
last night without a hitch at any
stage. Miss Mamie McOlure, who
played the purt of Jennie, the twice
married housemaid, is u very pleasing
actress aud her work last uight was
muoh appreciated. Mrs. Al. E. Mark-
ham as'Mrs. Austin was good and her
efforts were much appreciated. Jaok
Winters, in "Patsy, the Sport," and
Barney McColwell as George Van Dkye
were much above the average.
By request Mr. Markham has consented to again appear in Nelson
Thursday evening in "Mavourneen,
or Katv of Kildare. " It is one of the
best attractions put on by the Markham company and should draw a good
house.
FIGHT INTERRUPTED.
Plattsburg, N. Y., Maroh 18.-The

QUEEN'S COUNSEL
Tbe newspapers that are disposed
to criticise the recent nomination of
(Queen's Counsel evidently find it an
nngracious task. For to say that this
gentleman or that should have received the honor means that
some other gentleman who has
been appointed ought to bave
beeu passed over. Ana they do not
care to say this, for the reason that
those who have beeu advauced to the
silk are ull very worthy and estimable
members of the bar of British Columbia. All, thut is, excepting the prcseui
Attorney-General, neither whose legal
attainments nor long professional
standing entitle him to this mark of
precedence over a score of others that
might be named. But the Act by
virtue of which the appointments have
been made was careful to provide
that the Attorney-General should be
made a Queen's Counsel. The present
incumbent, therefore, is an ex officio
Q. C., although it is not provided in
the Act that with the loss of his
office he shall cease to wear his honor.
Tbe others are passable ; some of
them even more than passable. And
complaint cannot be ma:lc tbat undue
political partiality was displayed in
making the appointments. Three of
them aro Liberals and three are Conservatives ; three of tlj***ii are supporters of Mr. Semlin's Government
and three of them are opponents. For
t lis equal distribution of honors we
are quite sure tlie public are indebted
to some other member of tbo Governmeut than lhe Attorney-General, who
was never known to study or practise
courtesy to his opponents An exception to tbo usual run of the newspapers is The Victoria Globe, which says
in no subdued tone that several of the
appointments aro objectionable.
The extent of The Colouist's severity
in criticising them is to express regret
that an old, honored, and distinguished member of the bar in the person uf
Mr. Pooley was overlooked. It might
have been nioro severely critical without being unreasonable. Tbe Miner
had thought of two other omissions,
aud is encouraged to refer to them by
tbe outspoken language of Tbe Globe.
Many of us may not agree with
Sir Hibbert Tapper's politics, but no
one will deny that Sh Hibbert Tupper is a distinguished Canadian, who
has been Minister of Justice and has
filled other high and responsible positions in the public service. He is
eminent in his profession. As legal adviser for the British cnsi; he was present at the conferences of tho Paris
Iribunal that settled tbe Behring Sea
disputes with the United Slates. For
bis servicos on that occasion ho was
honored by ihe Imperial Government
and Her Majesty with the title of
Knighthood, He was also selected by
the Dominion Government to appear
as counsel in those arbitration proceedings, iu oonneotion with the old
scaling question, tlint were held a
few years ago at Victoria, aud to this
happy circumstance the Province is
indebted for the pleasure of since having him heconie a citizen. It was
scarcely courteous to bave overlooked
Sir Hibbert Tupper in favor of somo
others who bave never been particularly distinguished for anything.
If his politics were au objection,
those responsible for the appointments
caunot make a similar   excuse  iu   the
Hero is something important if true,
and interesting iu any case. It is
taken from The Toronto World, which
has a great uoso fot enterprises that
are beiug secretly hatched, aud we
do not know that any one need be
greatly surprised if the future should I
develop that the present story has sub-
stantial foundation: "Things are mov
ing very rapidly these days in railway
matters. By putting two and two
together, The World very much suspects that a new Canadian transcontinental railway system is at presont
iu process of formation. For a long
time there has been a general impression that Messrs. William Mackenzie
and Dan Mann bave been associates of
tho Canadian Pacitic Railway, or,
rather, agents of that Company, and
that as fast as they got charters and
bonuses they turued them over by
agreement to Sir William Van Home,
It looks now as if a split had taken
place between Mr. Mackenzie and the
O. P. R , and that war is on between
them. Any day we may look for a
declaration of open hostilities. The
fact that Joe Martin's Government in
British Columbia threw out Macken
zie's British Columbian & Eastern
Bill the other day is significant.
This road was to run Irom Vancouver
to Nelson, with the intention of securing a right over the Crow's Nest
line to Letbbridge. Tbe throwing out
of the Bill deprives Mr. Mackenzie of
the customary bonus, and thus prevents him from uudei-takinfe tbe construction of the road. Messrs. Mann
& Mackenzie have, therefore, to look
for another outlet, and their various
schemes bave now prettly much taken
the following shape: Beuinniiig at
Port Arthur. Ihny propose to build n
railway to Winnipeg, and from Winnipeg vin (Hailstone unit nlong the
Dauphin road, over tin* old Mackenzie
snrvev, ami through the Rocky Mountains to tbe Const by the Yellowlu ail
Pass. Messrs. Mackenzie <fc M-n:i are
also reported lo have bought Hh-jIi
Sutherland's charier for a road from
Winnipeg to Hudson's Bay. This road
Includes western connections beyond Manitoba. For several weeks
Messrs. Mann & Mackenzie and
Sutherland, and Premier Groenway
and Hon. J. D. Cameron of Manitoba,
have been in oousultatiou| here, and
the Ottawa end of it has been represented by Hon. Mr. Sifton, who is reported to bave very much at heart the
interests of the Mann & Mackenzie
projects. Practically, thin, Mr. Mac
kenzie 's scheme is for a railway from
Port Arthur to the Paciiic coast, via
Winnipeg, Luke Dauphin and the Yel-
lowhead Pass, going to tho north of
the present 0. P. R. line, and also
through a country whioh is said to
contain better laud anil afford a better
traffic than the C. P. K. "

F. W. SWANNELL,

Of the proposed Corbin Road The
Victoria Globe says: "We had thought
that with the construction of the
lino from Robsou to Boundary the
chief cause of complaint had heen overcome. The residents of that part of
the Province said : '(live us any road ;
that will satisfy us.' But it seems
that the dissatisfaction is not uow
coming from the residents of that part
of tho Province but from outsiders
and some in this city, who seem to
think that railroad communication
should be ijnide from the south in order
that we may havo a conipeting line
via Seattle. This argument we do
not approve of if we are to have any
communication   with   the    Boundary
district let it be direct. The question
of a direct line from the Coast to
Kootenay seems to ns more important-
than ever." It is nonsense to suppose
that British Columbia can be well
served by having ils trade diverted
into foreign channels. That is not
the way to build up a Province; but il
is the certain way [to undermine and
weaken il.

A Map of Nelson and Vioinitj to be Issued by the Board���New Members Eleoted*
There worn several petitions before
the South Kooteuay Board of Trade
yesterday evening on the occasion of
the regular monthly Kenurnl meeting,
no less than four gentlemen desiring
the honor of the B. 0. Commissioner
ship at the Paris 'Exhibition of 1900.
Dr. B, 0. Arthur sent, in an application ; Mr. 0. M Rosendale, until recently metallurgical olerk at the Hull
Mines Smelter, also sent in one accompanied by a largely signed petition, as
did Mr. Jeremire Robillard. The latter
petition was about 20 feet long aud,
when unfolded, reached right across
the Board of Trade room. Mr. J. A.
Turner, who had been elected chairman in the absence of Mr. J. Roderiok
Robertson, stated that he had been ro-
i-nested to announce that Mr. A. H.
Holdioh, the well kuown assayer, was
also a cuudidate for the positiou.
After an animated disousaion it was
lesolved, ou the motion of Aldermeu
Hillyer and Thomson, to lay over
the question of endorsing any of the
applications until the next general
meeting, it being understood that there
were several candidates who had not
yet [deolarert themselves. Mr. J. M.
Lay also stated that Dr. Dawson's sou
had beeu appointed Dominion Commissioner and it appeared doubtful whether any British Columbia man would
tie appointed at all.
In a general discussion which ensured, Mr. J. Bannerman considered
that if the exhibit were to be productive of practical results, a really good
collection of ore must be provided.
Messrs. H. B. Thomson and T.G, Proctor concurred, aud thought that the
Boards of Trade in the various Kootenay towns should make it their busiuess to ensure attractive collections e-
ing forwarded from their respective
districts. The following resolution
was then passed on the motion of Mr.
II. B. Thomson, seconded by Mr. W.
H. Grant: "Tbat the South Kootenay Hoard of Trade authorize the
Council to Investigate the best menus
of securing an exhibit to be placed at
the disposal of the Provincial Government for the Paris Exhibition and that
the Council is hereby authorized to expend S150 in Ihe futrheruneo of this
object." It was understood tbat, if
deemed advisable, Ihe Board might increase the grant, and it was also hoped
that the Provincial Government might
be induced to devote part of their 916000
appropriation towards this object.
Mr. H B. Thomson thou staled that
while at the coast recently he had
found people in a state of doploralile
ignorance as to the position and advantages of Nelson, and suggested that a
umi) of Nelson and tbe vioinity, in
the form of a folder, showing its central position and its varied resources
and advantages would ho an excellent
advertisement. He referred to a similar publication got out by Kelowna,
Okanagan, wilh excellent results, lie
also thought that the people of Nelson
might be relied on to back np the
scheme financially. The idea was considered an exoellent one. and on tbe
motion of Mr. H. B. Thomson seconded by Mr. T. G. Proctor, the following resolution was passed: "That
a committee be appointed to look into
the nuostiou of getting out a map
lo be published hy the authority of
Hie Hoard, of the country tributary to
and surrounding Nelson, and that this
ciimniitleehe authorized to secure estimates of the work and to proceed wilh
same, expending u sum not exceeding
1800." Messrs. J. A. Turner, G. F.
Beer, H. B. Thomson, A. E. Hodgins,
P. Fletcher, ,1. Bannermau and T.
G, Proctor were eleoted to serve on
the committee.
A petition to the Dominion Gov-
ernment asking for the erection of
suitable Post Olliee, Customs aud In
land Reveuue buildings, which had
heen prepared by tbe council, was
��dopted, and **()0 copies thereof will
be printed. The petition contains a
great deal of interesting information
regarding the resources of; Nelsou,
pointing out, among other things, that
the revenue derived last year from the
Nelson port of customs amounted to
���Mllll, 772.19.
A report o the council containing the
gist of correspondence with tho Provincial Goverumeut regarding Ihe appropriations for the Paris exhibit, and
���' Registry olllco was read, and some
communications from tho Kaslo Board
oi Trade urging tho advisability of
���suding au exhibit of ore to tbe Karl's

MYSTERY OF THE TIDES.
���lutr Reasons   I hnl War* Aaeltiaed
For Their i;i.l> and Flow.
The tldos, those mysterious -pulsations
of tho sua, have been the theme of curious
speculation ever since man be^aii to ask
the reason of what he saw around him.
Many sagos and clever bruins In the ages
of the I*:* 1 tried to explain away the
periodical ebb uud flow of tho ocean, nnd
many plausible if erroneous Ideas were
seized upon and used to solve the problem,
and somo of tho ourlous notions uf these
old world philosophers are worthy ot lute rost.
Aristotle, who tried to find a logical
reason for everything In nature, thought
that t ides were caused by the sun, which
moves and whistles the winds ubout so
that they fall with great vlolenoe on the
Atlantic, the only great ocean known to
tlie Greeks, which tints swells and causes
the tide. Plato accounted for them as be
im: caused by an animal living lu a **uv
em, which, by means of a huge orifice,
created the ebb and flow. The ancient
Arabs believed that tides wore oaused by
tlie moon heating the waters and causing
them to swell, while others averrod thut
they were caused by the alternate decomposition of the sea by the air, and of the
air by tlie seu, thus causing nn ebb und
flow. A writer as late as thu thirteenth
century coolly remarks thut tides are
caused by tho efforts of tlie earth to
breathe.
Suintly St. Jerome explained tho mystery by means of cavos, and Bede stated
that the ebb and flow were caused hy an
enormous serpent, who swallows and
vomits the water. Another old sags
thought that thoy wero caused by the
melting of tho ice at tho poles. In Kus-
ita, dwellers by the neashoro popularly be-
Hove that the tides are governed by the
water king's daughtor.
Tho Shotlandors used to bollove thut
periodical tides were caused by a monstoi
living in the sea, or, to quote from an old
Shetland worthy, "a monstrous sea serpent that took six hours to draw in hi!
breath and about Blx to lot it out again."
The Chinese believe that -mpernuturul beings, weird and wondorful, cause the
tldeB, while the Malays aver that they art
caused by the movements of a huge crab
Some of those old thinkers have been very
near the solution of the problem, while
some of their crude notions are only fantastic���Scottish Nights.
THE 6TRA1GHT HAIRED GIRL.
Advice to the Yosng Man Who Ia Inclined Toward Matrimony.
Some one of tha oraoloa whoso mission
Is to advise young women how to select a
husband, and to warn young men against
feminine wiles, has rooently set up a new
guldepost for masculine wayfarers on the
road to matrimony.
"Marry a girl with straight hair," sayi
tho oracle. "Tho chanceB ore that hoi
ways aro as straight as hor locks, while
tlie heart of the curly headed girl is ai
full of twists and quirks as hor hair."
Tho theory is expounded at some Jnngth.
If n!l men will but bo guided by this sibylline voice, the day of the straight haired
girl is close at hand. Sho needs compensation. For years she has fought an unequal light against hor slstor of the curly
locks, and her temper has boon worn
threadbare, ull on account of hor hair.
What chunco has a straight haired girl on
a windy dayV Her hair Is straggling in
frnntio wlspB over her collar and her ears.
Sho looks untidy, disreputable, and all
the time the curly haired girl is becoming
more and more buw Itching. Her stray
locks orisp and ourl und flutter fluflily
round her faco, and she smiles in serene
consciousness that tho wind is quite powerless against hor. Whon rainy days oome,
the straight haired girl sighs dolefully
and looks limp and dejocted, In spite ol
Bwoll clothos. Hot days have tho sume
depressing effect upon her hair and spirits.
Sea bathing has no charms for hor. Even
golf can't be to hor what it is to tho champion with curly hair. Hut, If straight bail
1b to be a certificate of eligibility for matrimony, thero will be balm for all these
wounds
Tha Unique Tolatol Family.
"Count Tolstoi's wife and children,"
sayB Ernest H. Crosby in Loslie's Weekly,
"follow him at Intervals. Tho wonder to
me is not that there should not be entire
agreement among them, but thnt he hai
Influenced them as much as ho hus. Mine.
Tolstoi siMtuvd to mo to agree, on the
���whole, with nor husband's theories, but
she thought that ho was in advanco of the
times, and she would not consent to educate tho children as peasants. The
count, like a good nonroslstant, graoefully
ylolded. Nevertheless his children mor��
or loss accept his principles, and one
daughtor had boon planting potatoes with
a peasant woman on the duy thut I arrived.
"One little story, told me by the governess, will illustrate his way of dealing
with the ohlldron. His youngest daughter, Saoha, a pretty child of 10 years, had
oomo running Into the houso a day or two
before with her arm black and blue where
a peasant boy had struck her, and she
wont orylng to complain to hor father. He
took hor on his knee and quieted her and
then said: 'If 1 wero you, I would go to
the pantry and got a plate of swectmootl
and tako It out to him. Don't you think
thnt it will do him more good thun a
whipping!-' And he actually persuaded
her to do aa he said."
Good Atlvlec.
In n small vlllago in the south of Scotland nn cldor lu tho parish church wu!
