HE AN APPEAL
TO MM CITIZENS
Kootenay   Lake   Hospital
Directors Act.
LETTER TO THE PUBLIC
>1bo Wire Bon* J- Fred Hume Asking
Him to Oare Tor Their Interests-
Some   Faots and Figure***
The Directors of the Kooteuay Lake
General Hospital and the Ladies' Hospital Aid Society mot yesterday and
took action regarding the matter of a
money and land grant to the Reverend
Bisters, for the establishment of a
hospital in Nelson. Telegrams were
dispatched hy both organizations to
Hon. J. Fred Hume protesting against
the action of the council and asking
that the interests of the present gen
eral hospital bo protected.
The meeting also decided to lay before the citizens of Nelson some facts
iu connection with the Kootenay Lake
General Hospital aud authorized Judge
J. A. Forin to draw up snch an epistle,
which The Miner has been asked to
publish and which is as follows:
To the Editor of The Miuer:
Dear Sir -.���The action of the City
Oouucil in rushing through a resolution to give block 49 aud |6,o00 to the
Roman Catholic nursing nuns for
hospital purposes was a surprise to the
public but worso than that to the Hospital Ladies' Aid and tha Board of
Directors of the Geneva) Hospital.
However, the rush may be explained
bv a perusal of the pro*-eni';n *.*������_ of the
Provincial Legislature for the currrnt
24 hours.
For two years I have sat with tbo
Bonrd and although I had heard detractors before joining that body, 1
was glad to find them n body of citizens, ladies aud gentlemen, freely giving their time and attention to the
work. I discovered also that the cause
of the criticism was an old fuod whielt
shuuld be buried, iu any evont not
taken up by aldermen.
The showing of the hospital is excellent and by comparison I find it
better than many others. The following figures may be interesting, at
least explanatory.
The expenditure from March 1. 1898.
to Feb. 1, 1899, is as follows: March
*5!)5.42, April ff.B4.8B, May if-MO.Ol,
Jnne $477.74, July $875,75, August,
805.79, Sept. $568. B9, Oot. $615.15,
Nov. $558.86, Deo. $688.22, Jan. $780.-
88, Feb. $597.58, a total of $6,474.85.
On the other hand our revenne has
beeu made up from three sources; the
Government grant, private subscriptions and pay from patients aud corporations. Our receipts from tho
latter source were only $2,970.86 showing that a large portion of our income has been devoted to oharitable
work and without tbo Government
grant of $8000 we oould do very little;
deprived of this and we would have a
hard time.
We have already applied for block
49 aud asked for a grant of $5000 to
build or assist in building a uew hospital. We offered the old hospital to
the Government and now without an
intimation we find the Oity Counoil
undoing all our efforts.
From March 81, 1898, to Feb. 1, 1899,
we have treated uo less than 170 patients. We treated 48 oharity patients,
aggregating 1082 days of treatment.
We have 16 beds and two highly
qualified nurses, Miss Crease aud Miss
DesBrisay, who will be glad to show
any visitors through the hospital during visiting hourB. For nearly three
months over 16 beds were full and
still the deaths for the year were only
15.
We have a hospital doctor who responds as promptly as possible to every
call and we pay him. The other doctors can use the hospital on paying
$la.00 a week lor each patient, or guaranteeing the hospital fees. Our hospital doitor in under tha name restriction.
We do not refuse any oharity patient
when we have room except, the city
pauper patient's and we ask the city
to pay for them. But if a patient is
able to have his own medical attendant, surely the hospital fees should
be made secure withont dunning a
patlont for them.
Strange to nay the greatest trouble
to* heipttal bU has bt��n with  the
j city.    They givo us nothing, yet thiuk
I that all their charity  patients  should
| be dumped on   us,   but  instead   they
! have harassed  us,   iuterferriug  with
our water supply, putting us  to over
$100 costs to defend the rights  of   the
hospital which means the rights of the
unfortunate suffering inmates, instead
of helping the   Ladies'   Hospital   Aid j
and the   Board   they  have   shown  a
contrary spirit.   We   expected   better
things from the uew Council.
In a spirit of fairness we appeal to
the publio. Ought not the city to
give us a grant to treat their charity
patients?
If tho hospital is not large enough
give us funds. The kind ladies of the
Hospital Aid aro doing a splendid
work. The Board are working with
an eye single to tho success of the
hospital, and through good report and
ill have gone on and now, just as we
are getting ahead, a proposition to
take the land and graut applied for by
us, comes from an unexpected source.
Our anunal meeting is next month
and the annual fees are due. It is to
be hoped that the good citizens of
Nelson will visit our hospital, look
over our work, read some of the
grateful letters from those we have
treated and nursed aud freely, if yon
wish, inspect our accounts which are
free to any person. Then givo to a
local institution a loyal support so
that we will be able to build a new
hospital aud enlarge our work.

via Hampton Roads with four of the
crew of the Hamburg-American

Second Mate Scharges, Quartermaster Carl Ludtke and John
Schultz and Seaman Wm. Stark.
They were picked up by the Vittoria
formation.   A ooroner's inquest was held | from ;lncl open boat of the  Bulgaria
in the afternoon and after viewing the
body was adjourned until today in order
to enable the constable to secure as much
evidence ae possible and witi esses.

MAY MEAN  WAE
GREAT BBITAIN AND FRANCE HAVE
A CHANCE TO QUARREL*
Both   Countries Take a   Decided   Stand
Regarding  the  Coaling Station
Near Muscat.
London. Feb. 22-The last meeting of
the Freuoh Cabinet held by President
Fnure on th�� day of his death, deoided
on rather a strong 'policy of opposition
to England in oonnectiou with the dispute about the coaling station near Muscat, on the Persian Oulf. Foreign Minister Del OB**se submitted lo the Oabi
net, the draft of a protest agaittHt England's olaim of suzerainty of lhe ProV-
i. 0'of Oman anil t ie ooi.a-'t-u-ut right lo
forbid the Siilsn to givo Franco a coaling
station. It was arranged that Russia
should join in a similar protest. President Faure agreed to the matter and the
Minister of Foreign Affairs went back to
the Quay Doiiuy to prepare bis note to
send to the Ilritish Foreign Olliee. This
protest was delivered to Lord Salisbury
on Monday, the death ol tho French
President not interfering with tho policy
deoided upon. Great Britain, in the
meantime, had been proceeding in r.n active manner at the sent of the trouble,
The Commandant of the Bombay naval
station had been ordered to notify t' e
Sultan of Oman that he had no tight to
grant France a coaling station ou his
coast, and tho commandant had gone
about enforcing his instructions in rather
an unexpectedly effective manner. When
Her Majesty's Cabinet assembled yesl.ei-
day in Downing street, tn consider the
Muscat question aud France's note ot
protest, despatches came from Ihe Bombay naval officer saying that the Sultan
had concluded it best to withdraw ll s
grant to France. Just how this was effected is not yet known, but tho English
emissary undoubtedly was  more  vigot-
dlv needed here ns at present there
no place in whioh to put prisoners.
The Canadian Paoifio railway company
tire now interested in Ihn townsite anil

MH. JAMESON KILLED.
Winnipeg
Member of Parliament for
Shot Himself.
Winnipeg, Feb. 82.���Citizens of
Winnipeg were greatly shocked today
to learn that It. W. Jameson, member
of Parliament for Winnipeg had accidentally shot himself. Deceased was
extremely popular in Winnipeg and
his death is greatly deplored. Mr.
Jameson attended a Hoard of Trade
meeting in tho afternoon, at which the
Kettle Valley Railway ehattcr whs ilis-
cUBBed. He moved a resolution, urging the charter should be granted, al d
no monopoly given any railway in
British Columbia*. He supported tha
resolution In a speech, and at the close
of the meeting went home to dinner.
After tbo meal he read tha impels,
and discussed with his wife the danger
of carrying Hcarins. He said: "I
have one here uow," in d

His wife turned away to her household
duties,and a fecund later the weapon was

A. Thnrman, of NcIsod, B.C.
Mid com.nuiiii.a-i.iug with her. There
was a heavy sea on and his vessel
drifted away from the disabled craft
bul he steimed toward her and
again located her. He saw the men
aboard the disabled vessel attempt
to lower a boat andjust as four men
gat into it, it broke loose from
the steamer and drifted away. The
four men made an effort to row
back to the Bulgaria but could not
approach her on account of the high
seas. The Vittoria was preparing to
lower a boat to go to the assistance
of those on the Bulgaria when the
four men came alongside. After
considerable difficulty they weregot-
ten aboard. During a lull the second
officer of the Bulgaria, accompanied
by six of the crew of the Vittoria,
manned the boat just vacated and
started for the sinking ship. They
were scarcely away from the side of
the Vittoria however,before another
gale began and the brave fellows
not being able to reach the Bulgaria
found it impossible to return to the
Vittoria until several hours had
passed.
Captain Wetherall would not give
up hope of being ot assistance to
those on board the ill-fated vessel
and remained in sight of her until
nightfall when a perfect hurricane
arose and carried the waiting ship
miles away. In the morning the
Bulgaria was not to be seen and
lhe Vittoria proceeded on her
journey. The story of the experience of the Bulgaria and her passengers and crew, as told by Second Olficer Scharges, is a thrilling
one.
"Sea after sea swept over us,"
said Scharges, "smashing in the
doors of the cabin and deckhouse,
flooding the main deck, washing in
the awning deck and creating havoc
and disorder all over the ship. To
make matters worse one hundred
horses, thai sveie stabled on the
upper forward deck, stampeded and
in their fright made a wild dash,
trampling each other to death. This
state of affairs lasted until all but
about 20 had been killed or drowned
in the wash of the waves. Then
the butcher of the vessel, svith a
number of seamen, went into the
pulled out * pen and tried to quiet the beasts
examined. | that remained. This failing, as did
also the attempt to  force   the  fren-
board to lighten ship, but it was of
little avail. Inch by inch the ship
settled and as she sunk deeper the
waves washed with greater force
and freedom over her. One wave
carried away eight of the life boats
from the low-lying port side, and
with these went much of the hope
from the hearts of the passengers
and crew. At four o'clock on the
morn'ng of the 5th, the order was
given to call all hands on deck to
prepare to take to the small boats.
The water had flooded the engine
room and four pumps could not. keep
it down. It was then up to the grate
bars, but the firemen still managed
to keep the fires burning. Each
passenger and seaman was given
a life preserver and the remaining
boats were gotten ready and provisioned. Shortly after daylight the
thiee steamers, the Weehawken,
Vittoria and Kourdistan, one after
another, hove in sight. The Wee.
hawken was the first to be of service, as she sent two boats in which
the twenty-five women and children were placed. These were landed safely on the Weehawken, but
after that the storm increased in
violence. One of our boats was
smashed and it became almost impossible to lower another on account of the vessel being so far
down on the port side, and corres-
spondingly high on the starboard
where the remaining boats were
made fast. Another attempt was
made and one of them was gotten into
the sea. I. and three men who were
saved with me, jumped into her to
take the oats, when hy some unfortunate aetident we w* re cu' li s\ Thr
men ou the vessel were seen after, to
try repeatedly to lower another boat,
but without success."
The second officer stated that
throughout sll the conduct of crew and
passengers was excellent. The women
wi re especially btave. He thiuks there
is little likelihood the Bulgaria weathered the storm that night, as she was
iu a sinking condition when he left
her. The Bulgaria has no accommodation for first-class passengers, and
all the passengors on board were in the
Cerrage. They were mostly Germans
from different parts of the United
Slates It is feared than 101 persons
went down with her.

and Sir Louis Davies arrived in Ottawa
this morning fiom Washington, Both
are apparently in very best of spirits.
They were met at the central depot by

adjourned through inability to come to
an agreement on the Alaska lioundary
ijiii'st ion. the Canadian Commissioners
not beiDg prepared to give away to the
position assumed by the American represents! ives on this issue. As to the
tone of today's dispatches from Washington that the Dominion need not im-
ngine that she is going to obtain more
favorable terms next summer than she
s offered now, Si: Wilfrid plainly intimates that the British Commissioners
have simply made it their endeavor to
net-lire our rights iu this matter, at
least the fair arbitration of the boundary, and did not leet prepared, on behalf of Canadian interests, to accept
any lesB.
WHAT TIIK TIMES* THINKS.
Loudon, Feb. 122��� The Times in its
editorial comments upon the statement
of the British Foreign Office, regarding the udjou.nment of tbe Joint High
Commission, do s not take a serious
view of the matter. It says: "Even if
the Commissioners had agreed, the
agreement would have been submitted
to ihe new Congress, entailing about
equal delay,"
The Times believes that neitner
eountry would quarrel over the Alas
Ian dispute, and it is therefore still
I'u;.efiil thut some meaus may be found
of rebuming negotiations and arriving
at a satisfactory settlement.
WHAT TIIK TRIBUNE THINKS,
New York, Feb. 22.���Referring editorially to the adjournment of the
Joint High Commission, the Tribune
today says: "The adjournment of the
Joint High Commission to meet again
at the beginning of Aufust, is neither
to he wondered at nor to be regretted.
It does not indicate that the Commission bad failed in its work, "nor that a
settlement of at least some of tbe con-
troversios between us aud Canada is
no to be reached. On the contrary, it
strengthens tho expectation of such
settlement. Obviously the results of
the Commission's work must be embodied in a treaty whioh must* be rati-
lied by the Doited States Senate. It
would have been idle for the Cummin-
sion to offer at this tune a treaty dealing with part of the issues before it,
because there is not time ut this session for the Senate to act upon it and
it would be undesirable to have it laid
over until fall. Moreover, it is desir
able to have all tbe settlements included iu a single treaty. The plan is
therefore for the Commission to coma
together in August and closo up its
work, so as to have a treaty ready foi
submission to the Senate when the latter body reassembles in December
next. It is ,1 practical and promising
plan."

A DANGER SPOT.
Nelson will be noted for its building improvements this year. At
the last meeting of the City Council a request was made for the establishment of a grade on Front
street, in behalf of the Parsons Produce Co. and the Brackman & Ker
Milling Co., both of which desire to
proceed very shortly with the erection of large warehouses. The
Hudson's Bay Co. is preparing its
plans for a handsome brick store on
its new site on Baker street. The
same can be said of the Montreal
Bank people, These two fine structures are expected to be under way
within the next few weeks. It has
also been announced that Mr. Burns
will build some time during the
season, and it is believed that preparations have already taken shape.
These are all business structures,
and the three latter at least are expected to be decided ornaments to
the town and to contribute in a substantial manner to its appearance as
a business centre.
Mr. Burns is a man of very great
enterprise. That is evident from
the character and extent of the
business he is carrying on. He is
the fortunate owner of a valuable
site on Baker street, the old buildings on which long ago became unsuitable. He would have replaced
them with better before this if it
had not been for surrounding conditions; and even now, although
haste and energy are driving him
forward, we believe he is undertaking the new building, if not with reluctance, at least with something
suspiciously like misgiving. This
is because the new block will be
almost surrounded with old frame
buildings that, as long as they
stand,will be a menace to its safety.
Some of them are little better than
rookeries, such as often become
food for fire in the end. It is believed that other property owners in
this vicinity are deterred from building blocks more in keeping with the
character of the town through fear
of the same danger.
The entire block, from Ward lo
Josephine and from Baker to Victoria, is regarded by insurance men
as much the worst risk in the city.
There is a huge nest of inflammable
buildings in the interior of it, which
are expected some day to become
food for a disastrous conflagration.
The apprehension of this has a most
predudicial effect. It discourages
all but men of splendid nerve like
Mr. Burns from engaging in improvements; it subjects business
men who are obliged to occupy
buildings to an insurance rate that j ,r B Howin
is equivalent   to   a   penalty.
Parliament loses one ot its best
members in the death of Mr. Jameson, of Winnipeg. He was a man
of fine manners and good education.
These are rare enough in Parliament, dear knows, but what is rarer
still, and what Mr. Jameson pos-
sjssed, is a political conscience that
discriminates between right and
wrong in public affairs. The member for Winnipeg was loyal to his
party; but his first allegiance was to
honor and honesty, and he was
scrupulous in paying it. His party
in Winnipeg has no one at the present time who can take his place.
The others are politicians; Mr.
Jameson was innocent of intrigue,
and scorned the arts of the machine men.

It would be presumptuous in The
Miner under the circumstances to
judge between the hospital factions
in respect to the action of the City
Council in voting to dispose of
Block 49. That may have been
wise or otherwise; we do not know.
But The Miner does know that it
will be no party to cries calculated
to foment religious or denominational prejudices. There has been
too much of that in Canada during
the past six or eight years; we do
not want a repetition of it on however small a scale in Nelson. The
country has already had as full a
measnre of Protestant intolerance
as its credit can  stand with safety
Messrs. Gooderham and Black-
stock refuse to countenance the proposal to establish a departmental
store in Rossland, and the project
has in consequence fallen to the
ground. Let it lie there. Neither
Rossland, nor any other town or
city in the Province, requires a departmental store. We have enterprising trade's enough to supply the
wants of the public, and it is they
who should be encouraged, not the
one or two of a departmental store
who want to monopolize the entire
business.
Fernie will be disappointed to
learn that, as far as can be ascertained from the Estimates, either original or supplementary, no provision is made for school facilities or
school accommodation in that town.
If the people themselves had the authority to organize into municipalities and to establish and maintain
schools, without this everlasting de
pendence on Government for every
bite or crumb, perhaps it would be
better.

Our School Boys,
BY MISS LIVINGSTONE.
Over a Hundred Ladies Were Present and
LeanW a Great Deal About
Making Soup,
Over a hundred Nelson ladies
know more about making soup than
they did yesterday morning. Miss
Livingstone commenced her course
of lectures at the School of Cookery
yesterday, and dealt with soup and
how to make it. She made some,
which was tasted by all present and
pronounced excellent. Her demonstrations arc very interesting, and
she holds the attention of her pupils
closely as she tells what should be
done and does it.
The first lecture yesterday   was
free and there was a very  large attendance.    In the hall   over   Neelands'  shoe emporium,   where   the
school will be conducted,  Miss Livingstone has a large   range,   kindly
supplied by Mr. James Lawrence, of
the Lawrence Hardware  Company.
Coal, also provided   by   Mr.    Lawrence, keeps a hot fire burning constantly, and Miss Livingstone gives
a  practical  demonstration  in  connection with the explanations of just
how much flour and  milk  and  salt
and pepper goes to  make   up   the
ingredients of the dish   under   discussion.    She is an interesting lee*
turer and an excellent teacher. Mrs.
]. Roderick Robertson, president of
the Women's  Council,   under   the
auspices of which the school  is  being conducted in aid of the   Public
Library,   introduced   Miss   Livingstone in a short  speech,   in  which
she referred to the kindness of Mr.
Neelands in providing the hall,  Mr.
Lawrence   for   lending  the   range,
and the Hudson's Bay Company for
contributing some needed  supplies.
She explained the object  for   which
Miss Livingston had been asked   to
come to Nelson  and   expressed  the
hope that the ladies of Nelson would
seize this opportunity to learn more
about the science of cooking.
Then Miss Livingstone started in
on soups. The ordinary male newspaper man may be pardoned for not
being able to retell how to cut carrots, slice onions, boil bones and
strain cooked tomatoes. He can
say, however, that the whole thing
was most interesting and the ladies
followed the lecturer wilh an intelligent attention that should result in
the decided improvement in the art
of making soup in Nelson. The
pupils were armed wilh note books
and pencils and took copious notes
as Miss Livingston inumerated the
different things she used to make
the soup.
The lectures will be continued
every afternoon for two weeks and
the full course will cost the pupils
three dollars, Single lectures may
be attended for fifty cents each. A
large number of names were added
to the list of regular pupils yesterday and the attendance will certainly be large. A lecture that will be
of particular advantage to the male
portion of the community will be
one on cooking while camping. In
such a country as this such a lecture
should be of great benefit and at
will no doubt be largely attended.
On Saturday morning at 10.30 at
lecture will be gi"en on cooking '"or
school girls and the little misses of
the city should avail themselves of
the opportunity to learn something
that will be of great value to them
when they take charge of homes of
their own.
Tea was served yesterday and
made the afternoon a very pleasant
one for the large number of people
present. One of the ladies made
the mistake of carrying off another
lady's ostrich boa. As the mistake
has no doubt been discovered by
this time the return of the boa to
the school this afternoon will be appreciated by the owner.
j dishabille. There were others, however, who were in his fix and some
of them suffered while on the way to
other hotels with the thermometer
nearly 40 below zero. It is unfortunate that more property was not
saved from the building. A great
deal was burned that could have
been taken out if the people had appreciated the danger of the situation.
But thev didn't until it was too
late."

a myth. They will simply put in a

been arranged to take place in April

Hotel guests in Vancouver urn greatly
to be envied. The usual monotony of
life in that city is varied by bear limiti*,
in which the guests fortunate enough to
possess firearms are privileged to take
part. They had some grand sport u few
days ago. A citv in the woods is not
williont its attractions after all.
Messrs. Wallace k Miller, of this cily,
always I have unbounded laith in   the future of

I  Rot .Mr. Miller recently ml ur 1 from a visit
A Traveler Who was in   the Building the Night it Burned.
George E. Ellis, of P. W. Ellis &
Co., wholesale jewelers, Toronto,
was in Nelson yesterday on his semiannual visit to the trade. Mr. Ellis
was in the Hotel Manitoba fire in
Winnipeg and with him was Mr. T.
Western, another traveler for Ellis
& Co., and the man who was mentioned in the dispatches as losing
his sample cases containing several
thousand dollars worth of valuables.
Mr. Ellis said he and Western
with many other travelers and several curlers had rooms in tlie fourth
floor of the hotel, and it was on this
floor the fire appeared after burning
its way out ot the dining rojm. It
was his second hotel lire,hesaitl,and
he knew enough to hustle. He hurried on with his clothes and then
started down stairs with trunks of
diamonds and jewelry. "I
sleep with them,"   said   he,
they were my first thought.

Mr Martin, of Comopolis, who has
been paving a short business visit to
N lson, reports that wr.rk on the Arrowhead and Kootenay branch of tho
Canadian Pacific will begin almost immediately. The engineers are busy in
locating the line, and within a few
weeks it is expected the contractors
will be at work. This roi dis of some
interest to Nelson, as it is claimed that
when il is completed to Kootenay Lake
it will divert that por I ion of the through
trade over the Crow's Nest, and Intend'
ed for up country,from this city. Nelson, however, is quite content to take
her chances, and rejoices at this
additional widening of railway development that is doing so much for Ihe
Province.
Trout Lalie is so isolated that its iu.
terestion little | paper, The Topic, of
date the 9th inst., has just come to
hand. This Arrowhead branch will
pass through the place, and The Topic
undoubtedly rejoices at the prospect of
being rescued from its isolation. It
sees great things ahead. The branch
will be au attractive route for through
traffic* between East and West. There
will be but one transfer, from Kooten-
ny Landing to the head of the Lake,
which wi'l shorten the present mo by a
length of 80 or 90 miles, and the transfer will be considerably shortened, it is
claimed, when the Crow's Nest is extended to Nelson.

ARE IN A POSITION TO OFFER
Mining at Fort Steele is certainly
active. These items are from The
Prospector of that place:
Tho John L. and Jayisee claims situated on Tracy creek have been stocks-1
for $1,000,000. Senator Turner is
president of the company and Mr.
Knox secretary.
Montana claim situated on Tracy
creek, has also been stockod for $500, -
000.
Copper Crown, situated near Isa-
dores Canyon, has been bonded to
Spokane parties for $25,000.
Bill Nye, on Wild Horse creek, has
been bonded to Spokane parties.
It is becoming more and more certain that the mining properties situated in the Fort Steele district, are
attracting the capital. All the above
named properties have been secured by
Spokane Syndicates. There are several large deals under consideration by
Spokane parties, involving the trans-
fering of a group of fourteen claims
which are situated near tbe head of
Wild Horse creek. A group of claims
near Luke lako hns also been   secured.
We learn that the property located
by Wm. Yiolet, J. W. Wheeler and
several other parties, consisting of a
block of fourteen claims, situated on
Quartz creek, near the head of Boulder
creek, has been secured by a Spokane
syndicate, and stocked for $8,000,000.
Tho contract on which the locations
have been made run through tho district from Elk river north, aud varies
from a mile to two miles iu width.
The formation is slate, granite, porphyry, quartz and lime, and large
veins are found traversing this contract in every direction. Large bodies
of copper ore covered by u heavy iron
cap have been found, and many locations mads.
The development of the ledgos in
tho copper belt east, of Port Steele
still continue) lo give the most encouraging results, and assessment
work is being performed on n large
number of claims ou Wild Horse croek
aud ils tributaries.
