Ninth Year
C. PI STANDS IN THE
W1Y OF THI MILL
DOVE TO   HIS DEATH.
Will Not Grant a Narrow-
Strip of Property.
THE SAMPLING WORKS
A Speoial Meeti"g of the Board of Trade
Has Been Galled For Tonight to
Discuss the  Matter.
At a speoial meeting tonight the
South Kootenay Board of Trade will
consider the present status of the pro-
pried Nelson sampling works situation. It appears that the gentleman
who wishes to erect the works here
bas good reason for thinking that
the C. P. R. does not, by any means,
view with favor this effort to supply
Nelson with another important industry. He is anxious that tbe aid of the
Board ot Trade should be secured in
urging the 0. P. R. to grant him a
small concession that will make the
building of the works possible. The
faoti of tbe cage, as learned by Tbe
Miner, are briefly, as follows:
Seuie mouths ago Mr. 0. W. McDowell, haviug made up his mind
that sampling works to treat Slocan
ores would be a good business proposition, commenced negotiations to secure inffioient property ta ereot the
works at Rosebery. The 0. P. R.
owned tba land that In desired and to
that oompany he applied. His communications were "forwarded" to
some "proper authority" and the forwarding prooess continued until they
were generally swallowed np somewhere, together with, no |doubt, other
requests that the big oompany was nut
over anxious to take action upon.
Finallj,after about two mouths dickering tb* land was ������cured, but try as
he would Mr MoDowell oould aot get
the 0. P. R, to quota him a rste.
He endeavored to have the freight
rate fixed but the oompany would not
do this. In consequence it was impossible to go ahead with the enter-
prise and Mr. McDowell bad to give
np the idea.
Tben he turned bis attention to Nelson where he thought he would bave
the benefit of railway competition.
In looking over the available sites
here he found tbat there wai only
one that would answer the purpose.
This is ��| th.* point where the 0. P.
R. and Neleon & Tort Sheppard roads
raa close together���where they would
be joined if oars were transferred
from one line to tbe other. Negotiations were then opened with the two
companies and tbe Government to secure the necessary land. It was easy
to make arrangement with the Government for 40x136 feet of the fore
���hore of Kooteaay River and with the
N. & P. 8. for a spur line to the
proposed mill and any property in
which the oompany was interested.
But there was tho same old trouble
with tbe 0. P. R. Por the purpose!
of the mill it is necessary to have more
property than the Government controls,
an additional eight feet, owned by the
0. P. R. being desired. Mr. McDowell set himself about to secure this
���trip, 8x126 feet, but again his communications to the 0. P. R. were
"forwarded to the proper authorities. "
Whether these "proper authorities" are hiding in the heart of Af-
rioa or are only dead, ii not known
bnt nething of a satisfactory nature
hai been received by Mr. McDowell.
The 0. P. R., has, however, offered
Mr. MoDowell all the property he
wants some place else in the city
where the Nelson & Fort Shsppard
Company cannot compete. This will
not answer the purpose ai Mr. McDowell wishes to treat both Slocan
and Ymir orei or none at all. He will
not accept the 0."���P. R.'s offer of another site as it would not pay hiss to
do io, and still hopes to secure the
narrow strip of land which means
sc much to him and which is too small
to be of much value to the 0. P. R.
Thus the matter now stands. To
dav Mr. Marpole, superintendent of
the Pacific division of the 0. P. R. ii
expected to arrive ia Nelson and on
this account it has been decided to
hold a special meeting of the Board of
Trade tonight to discuss the matter.
It will be readily Been tbat the importance of the question should assure a very large attendance of members.
A High Diver Lost   His Bearings  and
Was Fearfully Injured.
New York, March 8.���Thomas Don-
aldson of Bathbeaob, known the world
over as a champion high diver, dove
from the loof of Madison Square Gar-
don, u distance of 86 feet, this after-
upon with probably fatal results.
Douiililson traveled for some veuri
with Barnnni and Bailey and bus beeu
the Htar attraction at the sportmen's
show now ruuning in the Garden.
Ho 1ms been making two dives daily.
The lank is less thun eight feet deep
and on two or three former occasions
Donaldson did not bave the success expected aud came out of the water
with hemorrhages from nose aud ears.
Hurrv Cornish 1ms had charge of
the water sports aud it was be who
this afternoon gave Donaldson tho signal to dive. Three thousand persons
were present and suw the famous diver
lean from the platform, and falling
slowly forward, make the plunge. He
shot straight downward, but it was
plain before he had got half the distance that he had lost control of his
body. He struck the witter head first
uud failed to come up. Small circles
of blood came bubbling up from the
bottom aud Harry Reader, the amateur champion swimmer, and an attache of the Garden plunged into the
water. He dived several times and
finally brought Donaldson to the surface. He was apparently dead with
blood flowing from mouth, nostrils
and ears and from wouuds in the
head. Donaldson was carried into one
of the dressing rooms and attended by
several physioians. He was then re
moved to the New York hospital. He
has a fractured skull with compression of the brain and tho left side of
his face is crushed in. Tbe surgeons
at tbe hospital say that his death is
only a question of hours. Witnesses of
the aocideut say that as Donaldson left
the platform the colors which were
wrapped about him become loose. His
attention was diverted aud he did not
have his wits about him when he
struck the water. He weighed more
than two huudred pounds and struck
with terrific force. Donaldson was
46 years old. Just before making tin
dire, be said he iutended to challenge
Kearney Speedy, the champion high
diver of the world.
FOR WAR WITH GERMANY.
Frenoh Chamber   of Deputies Talks of
Tbe Army.
i Parii. Maroh 8. ���In tbe Chamber of
Deputies today the debate on the army
budget led to the usual references to
the necessary preparedness against
Germany and to comparisons of tbe
two armies. The members of the
House, while oomplaining of the bud-
net which totals up 875,000,000 francs,
admitted the impossibility of retrenching and the necessity of meeting German increases by corresponding additions. Tbe Minister of War admitted
tbat the Frenoh effectiveness was
inferior to the German but it was impossible to remedy this owing to the
lack of population. The Minister also
expressed the belief tbat mere numbers above a oertain point, did not
add to tbe effectiveness of the army,
as they could only aot as reserves and
he was convinced that the fate of a
conflict would be decided before the reserves could bo employed. It is not
tiecesaary therefore, to be alarmed about
neighboring increases. France must
meet quantity by quality. The rifles
and guns of the French army were
without their oquals aud the country,
therefore might await the future with
confidence.
AFTER   THE   BUSINESS.
San Francisco, March 8.���The board
of atate harbor commissioners took action yeiterday which insures ample
accommodatiou for all transports and
similar vtssnls in the service of the
United States Government on the Pacific. A resolution was adopted iu
structing tbe ohief engineer to prepare plans and specifications for transferring the Fremont street wharf into
a covered dock, with all the needed
appliances. This action is expected
to offset the busiuess men of Seattle
to make that city tba headquarters for
the Government's supply department
for troops in Hawaii and the Philip-
pi nei.
GERMANY'S NAVY
London, March 9.���The Berlin oor
respondent of the Standard, commenting -open tho resignation of Admiral
Von Knerr as Commander-in-Chief of
the Germaa Navy, says: "It is pr *h
able that the resignation is a prelude
to the re-organization of naval con
trol. The post of Commander-in-Chief
is likely to be abolished and the control of the navv to be placed directly
under Emperor William and his Naval
Cabinet."
MR. KIPLING STILL IMPROVING.
HOW M WILL HOLD
ALL THAT WE HATH
New York, March 8.���Rudyard Kipling's health continues to mend
���lowly. So far beef tea is his only diet
and nothing will be added to it until
an improvement in his condition
will permit. He has not been told of
the death of hii daughter Josephine.
Elsie, tbe other daughter, rested
quietly today.
Big Increase to Great Britain's Navy.
ESTIMATES ARE LARGE
They Will Show an Inorease For this Tear,
Over 1898, of Three Million
Pounds.
London, Maroh 0. ��� The Times this
morning says: "We uuderstand
that the navy estimates will show an
increase for the ensuing year of nearly
��8,000,000 over last* year's total aud
will reach almost ��119,000,000. It is
proposed to add between 4,000 and
5,000 men. The largest share of the increased expenditure, however, is for
ship-buildiug, repair?  and   the like. "
Commenting editorially upou the
foregoing, "rather Btartliug state
ment" the Times says: "It is prett\
clear that Sir Michael Hicks Beach.
Chancellor of the Exchequer, will have
an admirable opportunity to displaj
his powers us a constructive finauoiei
and we only hope he will rise to the
occasion But he poiitively must uot
���eek to escape from his difficulties by
a further increase in tbe already oppressive income tax."
JUST   SHOP   TALK.
One Place Where the Poor Newspaper
Man ia Well Thought of.
Trenton, N. J., March 8.���It is laid
that within o year, it all goos well,
(his State will be inhabited principally by newspaper men. The Honse
yesterday passed AasemMj nnui Klein's
lull regulating the hours and labor of
reporters and editors. It provides
that these individuals Rliall work eight
hours a day, the compensation for
whioh ���hall not be less thau $8 a
week. An amendment to the bill provides that all reporters and edtora shall
t*e allowed two hours for luncb each
day. The dream of the newspaper
men interested will likely be blighted
when the bill reaches the Senate.
MARINE DISASTER.
Newport News, Maroh 8.���Intelligence of the linking of the tug Jauiea
Bowen, with 12 persons on board and
the loss of the second mate of the
German steamer Albano on Tuesday

York state law prohibiting th* handling of pike and pickerel during the
"close" seaion wheu the fish are lawfully caught or purchased outside the
State, haa been declared uncouetitu-
lioual by the Supremo Court. The

to Canadian fishermeu as laige shipments of the fish mentioned are made
ilaily from Canada to Buffalo and
other cities in tho State.

Open Door Policy Must be
Adhered to.
WAR THE ALTERNATIVE
A Budgot of Chinese News From Various
i. ource^���Inuckling Down
to Italy*
Londou, March 8.���Rear Admiral
Lord Charles Beresford, who has just
completed his tour of the world iu tho
interests of tbe Associated Chambers of
Commerce of Great Britain , iu au interview with a representative of the
Associated Press, reiterated his well
kLowu views on the subjeot of the
"Open Door" in China as being tbe
ouly possible policy of Great Britain. In so doing, he said, it was impossible to estimate the importance of
the Chinese market, a single province of which was worth the whole of
Africa from a commeroial point of
view. The Admirol. also said that
there would be war unless the "Opm
Door" policy should be adhered to,and
tbun asserted that American trade iu
China was progressing by leaps aud
houiidi, proportionately much faiiter
than tbat ot Great Britain.
ANOTHER INTERVIEW.
Londou, March 8.���The Daily Mail
published an interview this morning
with Lord Charlea Beresford, which ia
practically a repetition of the one
tie had with a representative of tha
Associated Press already cabled to tbo
United States. He told the Daily
Mail intertk-wer ha ooul/1 say 'UtLk,
about bis tonr until he had completed
his voluminous report to the Associated Chambers of Commeroe, whioh
sent him on bis tour, but he insisted
that, if all the powers began grabbing
land in China, it could only result in
quarrels and war. "It is absolutely
neoeasary," he aaid, "to keep China
on her feet. Better stand up uow for
the "open door" than venture upoa
tbe dangerous course of spheres of influences. I do not suggest a cut aud
dried alliance. I de not think America would join such an alliance. But
America, Eugland, Germany and
Japan might agree to work together
to maintain the "Open door. "
"Of the six men who direct China's
policy, four have never been outside
of Pekin. Li Hung Cheng has no real
power. The Empress Dowager is the
real power and a very clever womau.
She signs the popular edicts herself
aud makes the Emperor aign the unpopular ones. The Provincial rulers
are more progressive than those at
Pekin. Thoy all favor the open door
policy and onlv want to save China's
face; but they think we are afraid of
Russia. Wo must help stiffen China,
which will not be a difficult task."
GETTING AROUND IT.
Loudon, March 8.���The Pekin cor-
respondent of tho Times Bays the
Chinese are diseussiug the advisability
of making San Mun au open port, so

British, Americau and German consuls, who on Sunday declined to bold

and obstructive tactics were tbe
ground of the consular complaint, as
heen superseded.

China's refusal to grant the concession recently domanded by Italy of
San Mun Bay, province of Cbekiaug,
to be used aa au Italian naval base
and coaling station.
SEALING SITUATION.
Washington, March 8.���In view of
tho failure of tlie Americau Canadian High Commission   to oome to   an
agreement on the subject of the seal
fisheries, the treasury department is
considering the question of despatching
oue or more revenue cutters to Behring sea to protect the interests of the
United Stales from illegal sealing.
This is customary on tbe part of both
tbe British and American Governments and is in accordance with the
provisions of the Paris tribunal of arbitration. Tbe tribunal also provided
that the regulations prepared there
under may be changed alter a certain
number of years, and the treasury nlll-
cials have called in tho State Depart,
ment for u statement as to the diplomatic situution before any action.

What tho Minister of Marine
Thinks.

out and patrols were sent to scour
the neighborhood, but tho culprits
were not discovered. The sentry says
he saw six meu running away. The

Berlin, March 8.���The budget committee of the Reichstag has adopted
the proposals of the Centrists (tho
Clerical party) which met the Government half way in its demands for an

growing  predominance  of  the ,Centrists as thu ruling party.

Globe from Dawson, dated February
1, says that Mr. Ogilviu's commission

the Minister of Justico for his extradition. In answer to questions by the
judge, the accused said the offence
with which he is charged ooourred
in March !8��0. At that time a reward
for his arrest was offered, aud he
seems to be under the impression tbat
if the Russian Government were informed that be has no money left it
would not bother going to tbe trouble
anil expense of taking him back. If.
however, after receiving tbis information, it still desires him to return, he
will go voluntarily. The matter was

Chicago, March 8.���A speoial to
tho Times-Herald from Washington
says that iu view of tho failure of the
Anglo-American Joint High Commission to finally agree upon the stoppage
of pelagic sealing in Behring Sea, the

nay. Throe Ministers and a prominent
private member are just back from
Washington, where they were understood to have had under discussion the
question of lead smelting and lead production in British Columbia. It was
probably the first time any one of them
had over given it a moment'a serious
consideration. It is fair to presume
that they come back with minds prepared for a full understanding of the
Canadian case. It is a good time,
therefore, to iuterview theiu ; and The
Mining Record suggests thut the abortive proposal of the Kaslo Board of
Trade be revived, and a deputation
sent to Ottawa to impress upou the
Governmeut the necessity of affording somo sort of relief to the present
situatiou.

Prices.
FROM
The Agent-Geuerul of the Province
in London complains that he is most
inadequately supplied with mining literature. If our Government at Viotoria wore loss intently employed in
[inh tical deals and schemes,they might
find time to do something beneficial
and thus earn the very liberal salaries
they draw. But Governments nowadays exist for the promotion of purty
ends, not public interests.
WHERE IS COLUMBIA?
The Review of the   Town in Question
Makes an Auswer.
The Columbia Review and the
Grand Forks Miner are having a little
controversy of their own. The following is from the last edition of the He-
view :
Our crony the Grand Forks Miuer
appeals to us for a little lesson in geography. We have not been at school
for some time ourselves, aud our own
education has been almost as sadly
neglected as the Miner's. But we
have taken a little troutile to find out
where Columbia is, rnd we have got
a few hints on the subject:
The Postmaster-General of Canada,
telegram dated January 7, 1899, recognized a post office named Columbia, at
a most advantageous point, on (but
not iu) the Kettle River. This point
was known as Upper Grand Forks during the dark ages in which the Miner
still lingers.
The Columbia & Western (otherwise
tbe Canadian Pacific) Railway Company abont the same time caused plans
to be made showing a station to be
Known us Columbia. This station, we
tleeoly reffret to say, is to be at quite a
distance from Grand Forks.
The British Columbia Govemmout
brought down the Provincial estimates
tbe outer day. On the page numbered
1)45 we find the item, "Works and
Buildings, Public School, Columbia,
$1600.
It is sad that the Miner should have
been without information on this subject, for the lack of it makes some of
its news items hard to understand.
For instance, from its last issue *.
,i "E. L. Beer has moved his office to
Columbia."
"H. T. Bragdon, hardware dealer,
has just opened up iu Columbia, with
a first class stock.''
"Dr. Hauna arrived in the city
Thursday. The doctor is looking for a
location. He will be found at the Pacific Hotel, Columbia, for tbe present."
We are of opinion, however, that
the Miner will have comprehensive enlightenment on this interesting geographical point very soon. But in the
meantime, as we are out of stamps
ourselves, we would fraternally suggest that the Minor write for information as to the whereabouts of Columbia
to the Dominion Government, the Provincial Government, or the head
offices of tbe O. P. R.
$200.00
TO
Because The Miner, in the interest
of the trade of Nelson and of the
Koottnay generally, doubts the wisdom of giving Mr. Corbin a charter to
build into tbe Bouudary country, it
is aoonsed by the B. O. Mining Record
of taking a narrow and selfish view of
the matter. That may be. The Miner
was not conscious of narrowness or
selfishness, but possibly it has been
guilty of both. And it gives fair warning that it will oontinue to be guilty
of both, in the same relation and degree, whenever the interests of the
Kootenay are involved. The Miuer
expeois to derive its sustenance from
the Kootenay, and is therefore exceedingly desirous to see it prosper. Whatever it oan do to advance that pros
perity, it will do. That is both its
duty and its pleasure.
But it will never endeavor to ad-
vanae the prosperity of the Kootenay
at the expense of other portions of the
Province or of the Dominion. Anx
ions as it is to see business flourishing
in its own immediate locality.it would
not turn a hand to promote it if injury
were to result to the community as a
whole. For the prosperity of the
whole is of greater importance than
the prosperity of any part. It is persuaded that au American railway that
just crossos far enough into the country to tap the trnde ot a section of it
and oarry it off through foreign channels is not calculated to help the
Kootenay, or British Columbia, or
Canada. It may be mistaken, but that
is its belief. And it arrives at it without-being in the least influenced by
considerations for the Canadian Pacific
Railway. It is under no oompliment
or obligation of any kind to that corporation, or to any person, thing, or
interest in the remotest degree relating
to it. It simply takes what it believes
to be a common-sense, businesslike
view of the question, and doing so is
unable to see how this country is to
be benefitted by having its trade |
whisked off to Spokane or Seattle.
Many of those  who profess to take a
different view   would probably   see as
The Miner does   if   they could  physic
themselves clear of that  mania which
is continually   seeing evil in the Canadian Paoiflc.    It is not  love   of  Corbin,     but    hatred    of      the      Canadian Pacific, that  colors   the   glasses
through which they are looking.    This
is a  species of idiotcy of   whioh   The
Miner has no ambition to be suspected ;
it leaves tbat tc   those minds   that can
take delight in   it.    For   itself it will
judge this, as it does other matters and
things of publio interest, purely on its
merits,   irrespective   of   how it  may
affeot   or   be affected  by this or  that
railway oorporatiou.   Following a Corbin charter, it can soe   trade going out
of the country, to the great  advantage
of American towns, American railways, |
and American employees; and it can see
nothing remainiug behind to  compensate for the loss.    A   Canadian Pacific
train oan carry  Canadian   goods  into
a Cana lian district as cheaply as   can
Mr. Oorbin's train, or Mr. Hill's; aud
through the carriage Canadian railway ���
employees, not   American,     Canadian
homes, not American, will be supported.    Who is to suffer  by providing for
this?   If there   is   the  fear  that   the
Canadian   Pacific   would   employ   its:
monopoly to squeeze the merchants and   t      TT      r\tT   A,TTpXITT"\T
miners of the Bouudary country, it   is O .      V .     U 1-lii U VTXl-Lllll ���
easy to provide further that rates shall __
he subject to the control of the Rail- ,
way Committee of the Privy Counoil
or of Parliament itself. If this Corbin railway were to open up and develop a large section of Canadian country something could be said iu favor
of it. But it will opeu up nothing.
It is intended to skip across the boundary just far enough aud long enough
to get our trade, aud then skip back
again. Not a Canadian shack, or hamlet, or town; not a Canadian interest
of any kind, or a Canadian citizen,
will be one penny tbo better of it at
the end of a year or of a hundred years.

MELSON WITHOUT POLICE OB LI-
0EN8E  COMMISSIONERS.
Hurried Legislation of th�� Semlin Got*
ernmeiit  Leaves  a Peculiar
State of Affairs.
UTKUARY AND MUSICAL.
The city of Nelnon is without a
Board of Polioo Commissioners or a
Hoard of Licensing Commissioners.
Major Neelands, or an noting mayor,
is alone qualified to sit with either
boards. John A. Turner aud A. B,
CreaBe are no longer members of thn
License Board anil VV. A. Maodonald
and Mr. Ortase are no longer members
of the Police Board. This is the effect
of legislation enacted at tho recent session of tho Legisluturo, when tho old
law governing license and polico
boards wus repealed and a new one
passed. Socton 18 of Chapter 82 of the
statutes passod at tho last session
provide for a board of License Com
missiouers consisting of the mayor and
two persous appointed by the Lieulen-
aut-t.ilovemor-inUonui.il, one of whom
is to be a member of tho counoil of the
city. As neither of the two to be
appointed huve beon appointed, and
us two constitutes a quorum, thero is
no board of License Commissioners
iu Nelson. The same law applies also
to tho Board of Pc lice Commissioners.
Yesterday tbe regular statuatory
meetiug of the board should have been
held but only Polioo Magistrate Ortase
and Acting Mayor Fletcher put in an
appearance. Mr. Orease was present to
anuouuce the faot that there was no
board aud after condoling with Acting-Mayor Fletcher departed.
Not until the Lieutenant-Governor
inuke.'i his appointment, therefore, will
Nelson have the Boards in question.
Oue oi the members is to be from the
Board of Aldermen and it is likely
Aid. Hillyer or Kirkpatriok will be
appointed, althongh the council will
probably recommend a member, either
Aid. Boer, Thomson, MoKillop or
Fletoher. Aid. Beer is a supporter of
the Seinlin-Martin Government aud
may get the appointment, but it is
more than likely that it will go to
Hillyer. Who the other member will
be, it is hard to say. It certainly will
uot be Mr. Orease, but may be Mr.
Turner.
Under the old law the Mayor was
oi-offloo ohairman of the two boards.
Under the new law (here in no provision for a chairman and tbat officinl
will probably have to be elected by the
three commissioners.    .
A High 01as�� Concert to Bo (liven ou
St. Patrick's Evening.
Nelson is to have a literary and
musical treat ou the evening of tit.
Patrick's Duy. Father Perlnud of the
Catholic church is arranging Cor a lecture by Mr. P. O'Furrell, nod a con
cert at which there will appear Mrs.
Melville Parry, Mrs. Brougham, Mrs.
Bruce While, Miss Wilson, Herr Franz
Steiner, Mr. Kydd, and Mr. Simpson,
There are only one or two of the
above who need an introduction to the
publio of Nelson Mr. P. O'Farrel is
the mining correspondent of the Toronto Globe and his writings are widely
read. Ho is said to bo a brilliant
speaker and perfectly at home on St.
Partiok's Day orations. The ladies
aud gentlemen above mentioned in
connection with Iho musical pro
gramme are well known, with the exception of Herr Steiner, who is a re-
oout arrival in Nelson. He is, however, us already recorded in these ool-
uniiis. a musician of rare ability and
his cello solos will be nu artistic treat.
It is not known whore the concert will
he held, but it will probably bo in the
Nelsou Opera Houso.
NEW OHIEF OF POLICE.
It is Said That Chief McKinnon is
Slated to Go.
It looks very much as though Chief
of Police MoKiunon was booked for
dismissal from his poosition as Chief
of the Nelsou Police Department. He
will probably be offered the positien of
patrolman, aud some one else appointed
in his present position. This, of
course, providing the Board of Police
Commissioners is filled up by the Lieu-
tenant-Governor. As it is at present
there is no one with power to dismiss
the Chief of Polioe. The; mayor mav
suspend him ponding tbe action of the
police commissioners but further than
this he cannot go. Mayor Neelands
was seen at his home in regard to the
matter of McKinnon's dismissal but
was unwilling to speak for publication. He bas been ill with grippe for
several days and can hardly be expected, under suoh circumstances, to pay
much atteution to oivio affairs. Hr
has left everything in the hands of
Acting-Mayor Fletcher, who was also
unwilling to speak in regard to the
matter. It is known, however, that
there was a feeling on the part of ihe
old Board of Police Commissioners that
a change in the bead of the police department should be made. Whether tho
new board to be appointed will take
the same view is a question. There are
Beveral applications for the position
and in case Ohief MoKiunon is let out
there will be no troublf in filling the
vacauoy.
HOCKEY   ON  SATURDAY.
Slocan City Will Send its Team to Play
With Nelson.
If the ice in the Crystal Rink sue.
cesgfully withstands the advent of
mild weather there will be a hockey
match, Slooan City vs. Nelson, on Saturday evening. The Neslou club ac
oepted the Slocan Oity challenge but
asked the latter to come to Nelson
which has better riuk accommodation. Slooan City has agreed aud thn
result should be a very interesting
game. Although they have held no
practices of late the plavers have beeu
skating and will go onto the ico In
Rood condition. The Slooan City team
Has been working industriously aud
Will be prepared to put up a good
game. The greatest drawback to an
interesting season of hookey in the
Kootenays in the lack of au association
���Jin regular schedule of matches.
��ext season this will be remedied if
Plans do not miscarry. It is proposed
to have representatives of the Ross-
"nil, blocan City, Sandon, Kaslo and
"evelstoke clubs meet in Nelson at
me time of the summer carnival in
July and organize a hookey association. A schedule of games will be
urawn up and a trophy offered for the
THE SCHOOL OF COOKERY.
Tho Last of tho Regular Locturos This
Afternoon.
The last of the regular lussous of
the School of Cookery will be given
by Miss Livingstone this afternoon.
A fowl will be roasted aud Miss Livingstone will demonstrate just how
it should be done tb obtain the best
possible results. Hot entrees, mayonnaise of chicken and aspic jelly will
also form subjeits for cousideratiou.
The leoture will be a very practical
oue and should not fail to draw a
good uttendauce.
Tomorrow afternoon the final leoture
will be given. It will be au extra
one and tbe subject will be the cooking of cundies Miss Livingstone
will make brandy snaps, salt almonds,
nougats and French creams. The admission to this lecture will be 35
cents. The subject should prove a
popular one as a knowledge of how to
make tasty candies should he a desirable addition to a housekeeper's information.
The subjeot doalt with yesterday
was jellies and creams which Miss
Livingstone treated in her usual
luoid manner. The Miner man can
vouch for the excellence of several of
the dishes prepared.
Markeson was banqueted by tho citizens of that town, who expressed their
regret at losing a citizen who had
shown such interest, iu tho town for
the past two years.
The Economist says: "Among
other matters tho city council might
liscuss is tbe numbering of tho houses
on the streets. Signs placed at the
streot corners with j the mimes of the
stn ets painted thereon would also bo
a source of great oonvoninuoe " This
is a Suggestion made by The Miner
some time ago and would certainly be
an improvement.
| The election of fire wardens under
tho Village Fires Prevention Act was
held at Ymir on Saturday, ut Kuska-
nook on Monday and at Creston on
Wednesday, under instruction from
John A. Turner, government agent.
Tho following were elected hy ueciam-
ination : Knskonook���Charlos Wright,
W. A. Alexander and A J. Fraser;
Creston���Frank Campbell, Charles
Graham and E. Miihinilnle; Ymir���
John MacLeod, J. F. Bourne, and
Grant Morris.
The Bedlington & Nelson terminals
have been located at Kuskanook, and
Contractor Carlson has a large force
of men at work upon them. This will
be iuorensed to 500 mon as soon as
thoy can be obtained, and it is hoped
to have the road completed to the C.
N. P. crossing, a distance of about
three miles, within the next two
mouths. Tho Crow's Nest Pass Railway has applied for running privileges over this portion of the Bedlington & Nelson, and the inhabitants of
Kuskanook need not be surprised to
wake up some April morning aud find
a train in town.

G. A. Farlni has recently returned
from Oro, the new towusite, on Lemon
Creek, at the junction of tho ��ecoud
north fork, 12 miles from Kootenay
River. A five per ceut. grade wagon
road has been completed from the river
to the towusite. The Uro Mining
and Milliug Company, an auxiliary
company of the B. C. Gold Fields of
Toronto, owns the towusite and adjacent claims, and has up to date, expended $04,000 on the property. A 10-
Statnp mill has just beeu completed,for
which the pipe Hue has bern finished
to convey the water to the Pelton
wheel. A flume 21,00 feet long, 700
feet on trestles 20 feet high, is ulso
part of the large amount of work done
by the company. The mines that are
being worked are the Golden Wedge
and Hiutou. They adjoin. Thero aro
two levels with cross cur tunnels with
700 feet of drifting. There are 10
stopes opened and 110 foot upraise
from the lower level iu which is a box
chute and man hole. An ore chute
fiom the lower level extends down lhe
hill 1100 feet to a 100 ton ore biu. At
the mill another ore bin, with a capacity of 000 tons, has heen built. Its
approach platform will accomodate
another 2,000 tons of ore. This ore
biu is probably the largest iu the country. Owing to the exoellent manner
in which the whole of the plant has
beeu arranged Mr. Fariui counts upon
running the mill with only three
men, instead of the six or seven that it
generally takes to handle a 10-stanip
mill. There are at present 25 men in
the stopes which will keep, with the
ore already ou hand, three teams going
at the rate of 30 tons a day. At present the ore is being stored in tho lnrce
biu aud when there is enough on hand
to warrant the continuous running of
the mill, the stamps will drop. The
mill is ready now but it will bo about
three weeks before stamping commences.
Of conrse with such elaborate preparations an important essential is
paying ore. This Mr Fariui is quite
sure he has iu abundance. Every day
a score or more of assays are takeu and
if the mill tests come out in values
equal to the tests it will uot be long
before the $04,000 will be again in
thu treasury. Mr. Fariui carries with
him now something JJvery rare in the
shape of ore. It is a sample of galena
carrying free visible gold, pockets ot
Whioh are encountered frequently.
Many geologists would question galena
carrying free gold but as seeing is In-
lieving, doubters should inspect Mr
Fariui'�� sample. Mr. Fariui leaves
today for Oro and will return in a couple of weeks to take a party up to the
formal starting of tho stamp mill.

"Molly"McOuire, Bupenutondout of
the Molly Gibson miue, left yesterday
for the mine. The work of rawhiding
tha oro down to the landing is proceeding and will likely be completed
this week. It is now probable that
the miue will uot (dose dowu, pending
the litigation regarding its ownership,
as the company will likely continue to
work it.

A Victoria syndicate has purchased
the Wasa group, which is situated on
Wasa Creek, north of Fort Steele, says
the Prospector. The Wasa group consists of the Mammoth and Wasa claims
and were located iu 1M3 by Wm.
Thompson, Wm. Haupt aud Pete Ros-
eudale. Development work consists of
a tunnel which is iu souie 90 feet.
The vein at tbis point is trom four to
six feet iu width. The oro is a quartz
carrying grey copper, red oxide of copper aud galena. The banging wall is
a porphyritio slate and the footwall
' black slate. Assay returns have run
as high as 22 per cent copper, 112
dunces in silver nnd $10 in gold.
��� ���   ��
JIMoyie will be heard from regularly
from this time forward. The Leader
of (he 4th says: "Ore shipments from
Moyie for "the month of February
amounted to 870 tons. Tbe St. Eugene
contributed 240 tons of this amounts,
and the Lake bhore came up with   the
A Silverton despatch Bays:���An
other mining deal was consummated
yesterday when Messrs Benediuni,
Kyte and Thomas of Silverton sold to
the Northwest Mining Synidcate of
London, the Lakeview mineral claim,
'this property joins the Bosuu group
On lhe south and covurs nearly all the '
ground between thut group and the i
Silverton towusite.
The OomstOOk mines are now haul-
ing concentrates from their new con- ;
centra tor to the Silverton wharf. Shipments from this property will bo cou- j
tinned, except during the breakup,
when the road will be iu too bad a
condition for hauliug for several
weeks.
The Wakefield mines, having made a
trial shipment to the smelters of 700
tons of ore, have uow settlod hack to
their plan of tho steady development
of this great property, which, when
their tramway and concentrator are
erected, will be one of the greatost
shippers, if not the greatest, in tho
whole slocan.
The Emily Edith owners are rushing
development work with an increased force aud are opening up three
levels nt once. The work already done
ou this property, which hns only been
running for about 12 months, has demonstrated that it will be a great producer aud well able to keep busy the
large concentrator that the management is arranging to erect this
spring.
Some ore still continues to come
down from the Vancouver group, although on this property the chief oh-
jeot of the management is to keep
tbe development well ahead of the
stopiug.
The spring is late this year and is
throwing back work on properties
that are uot far advanced, but as soon
as the breakup comes the number of
meu on pay rolls in the camp will lie
more than doubled and next winter
will see the Silverton camp the largest
shipper of the lake district.
* # *
The two new lead furnacei at the
lall Miuea smelter are expected Jto
commence this week or aa soon as
sufficient lead ore baa beeu accumulated to ensure a long run. The capacity
of these furnaces will be 80 tons and
140 tons per day respectively. This
will make the second lead smelter iu
British  Columbia.
* #   *
A Ymir despatch says: The shipments from the Second lielief mine
last week amounted to 08 tons, which
were sent for treatment to the North-
p irt smelter. The oustoma, valuation
lor this output was $'1100 which shows
tho ore uow being mined to be worth
over $40 per ton.
The Arlington mine, near the Sec-
o id Relief is also shipping ore from
us 300-foot level to the Northport
smelter. Tbis property ia owned
by the Hastings Exploration Syndicate.
The showing in No. 3 tunnel on the
Ymir mine is now one of the finest
ever seen in this country. The tunnel
has been widened out to form a station from wall to wall and has revealed B0 feet of solid ore.
The Porto Rico mill is now tempor-
nrily shut down iu consequence of a
Bcaroitv of water. It has been decided
to commence driving a f( uith tunnel
from the millsite itself. This tunnel
will be driven 2700 feet and will tap
the vein at a depth of 1200 feet.
Efforts are bting made to secure
the Good Hope group ou Wild Horse
i.'ieek but tho owners are holding out
for a high figure. This property is
traversed by �� remarkable ledge which
can also be distinctly traced across
the two adjoining claims through
the Good Hopo itself and for aj further
half-mile. In no place is it less than
five feet in width on the surface while
assays have ranged between $10 and
$105. Ou tbe Good Hope a crosscut
tunnel has beeu driven 10 feet at a distance of a further 25 feet will tap the
ledge at the depth of 150 feet.
About 200 tous of ore averaging
$35 in gold are now on the dump
awaiting tbe installation ol the stamp
mill at the Wilcox mine. Tbis installation will take place |iu the early
ipring. There is now 500 feet of work
done on this property in two tunnels
of 150 feet aud; 350 feet respectively
which are driven iu on the ledge.
On the latter a depth of 350 feet is
obtained,
