QUEEN of tmm
AT DEATH'S DOOR
The Aged Sovereign of All Britishers Dying in Osborne Castle,
Her Isle of Wight Home.
Prince of Wales, Princess of Wales, and Other Members of the
Royal Family at the Bedside.

Cowes. Jan. 20���Midnight���The Queen of England lies at death's door. She
was stricken with paralysis tonight. The Prince of Wales has received authority to
act In Her Majesty's stead, and thus has been created a practical, though not
constitutional, regency.
develop. The country knows that the
life of the feeble queen hangs by a
thread.
Cones, Jan. 20.���2 a. m.��� The
queen's condition is unchanged.
London, Jan. 20.-12:30 a. in.���It is
announced that though there is some
slight improvement, her majesty's
condition is most giave. Mr. C. T.
Ritchie, secretary of state for the
home department, will arrive at Osborne today and it is said that Lord
Salisbury will accompany him. The
Princess of Wales has urrived at Osborne.
Cowes; Isle of Wight, Jan. 20.-2:10
a. m ���The Prince of Wales will go to
London this morning,where, with the
Duke of York, he will meet Emperor
William. Whether the emperor will
proceed to Osborne depends upon the
result of this interview.
London, Jan. 20.���The official bulletins regarding the queen posted at the
Mansion house and Marlborough
house Saturday were read with much
evident anxiety and discussed by the
large crowds around them up to a late
hour in the night. A "slight improvement" was read with some incredulity.
Cowes, Jan. IB.���Midnight.���A local
rumor, purveyed by Osborne employees, directs that tbe queen cannot live
until Monday but this receives no
official confirmation, though it is nd-
mltted that it is serious,and even likely that the queen, if she recovers,will
never regain the use of those vigorous
faculties which have distinguished
her among the women of the times.
(lathered at her bedside are j,the
Prince and Princess of Wales, Princess,
Louise and other members of the
royal family, while Mr. Ritchie, the
secretary of the state for home affairs,
otlloiully represented the cabinet.
Lord Salisbury is in constant telephonic communication with Osborne
House and it is rumored that be had
arrived at Osborne, but this docs not
appear to be true. The arrival of
Emperor William and other members
of the royal family is anxiously awaited. For three days the queen has
been kept strictly to herself. The last
t|me she drove out in Cowes, the rain
beat down heavily upon her.
Even the natives who have grown to
look upon her majesty as an ordinary
body have noticed that she looked
more delicate and shrunken than ever,
the mere shadow of her former self,
yet, with feminine persistence, the
queen forbade those around her to say
that she was ill. She fought off the
ravages of worry, the deaths in her
own family and her increasing years
have brought upon her. For two
nights she dined alone and never stirred from the apartments she occupied
at Osborne. Humbly, for this tiny
woman rules her court with uo uncertain hand, her court officials implored
her to seek medical aid, These messages she steadfastly ignored and
though tonight her condition is admitted most serious there are only in
attendance Drs. Powell and Bald,
Doubtless the Prince of Wales will se-
eure additional medical attendance,
Her majesty lies helpless and almost
speechless on her bed in Osborne
Bouse, surrounded by every comfort '
Fruits, flowers, and all the accessories fo modern medicine are at band.
Osborne house is buried amid a
gloomy park of firs. The winds come
up from the channel and surge
through the trees like a death dirge.
A mile away stands the lodge. Beyond its portals none but the household can pass. By them, without the
sovereign's knowledge, are posted bulletins, announcing her condition. For
all the excitement evident it might
not be known that a "Scottish Laird is
dying in his mountain fastnesses."
Beyond the bulletins nothing official
Is intimated.
The village wiseacres who have seen
her from girlhood, wag their heads
tonight and say It is a bad day for
England. The official bulletins may
be descibed as optimistic. Their
value in describing the queen's ailment may be accepted as merely official essence of the facts. The information obtained by Iteuter's Telegraph
Go., to the effect that it is paralysis
from which the queen is suffering, Is
based upon the highest possible authority. By Monday It is likely that
the truth will be announced to the
nation. The extreme weakness of her
majesty and the loss of all her favorites appear to be at present the chief
cause for anxiety. Stimulants are being freely administered. In the opinion of those best qualified to know the
queen's present serious condition was
precipitated by intense worry over
the losses and hardships suffered by
the British troops in South Africa.
Frequently she has remarked to court
attaches that another war would kill
her. In this connection the Reuters
Telegraph company learns that she
was most seriously ill while last at
Balmoral in the autumn. Word of
this did not become public, but it
appears that she was then almost
dying, although that rigorous etiquette she Imposed prevented her family and attendants from making her
condition known. The present stroke
is a sequel to what occurred at Balmoral. If she survives It, she will
prove herself to be not only the longest lived monarch in England's history, but also the possessor of the
most marvelous constitution with
whluh a woman was ever endowed.
Locally it Ib taken to be a Bad coincidence that Sunday is the anniversary
of the death of Prince Henry of Hut-
tenbury, for whom special memorial
services are always held. The arrival of the Prince of Wales at about
six o'clock this evening accompanied
by Home Secretary Kitchle and the
arrival of the Princess of Wales at 10
o'clock tonight occasioned no signs
of any kind. They embarked upon
the royal yacht Albert and went up
the little river separating (.'owes from
Osborne. Entering the royal carriages, they were driven through the
half gale which prevailed, straight
to the royal residence. Mr. Ritchie
it Ib said waB especially summoned
to supervise the details of banding
over to the Prince of Wales the necessary authority to transact state business. Though no official announcement of this transfer appears to be
constitutionally necessary, it Ib likely
to be made. Fearful sorrow, not
unmixed with expectation, is written
upon every face. The official secrecy
which stops all callers at the lodge
gates, does not serve to mitigate tbe
dread that prevails of the end, whicli
it is expected the next 48  hours  will
London, Jan. 19.���Probably nowhere
else in the world has Queen Victoria's
prostration been so conservatively
treated in the newspapers as here,
where it is of the most vital importance. The papers, like her subjects,
hesitate to speak plainly of tbe fears
oppressing them regarding the queen.
The head lines of most of tbe afternoon papers today were confined to
non-committal words in big type, like
"Her Majesty's Condition." But the
news vendors were doing a tremendous business with every edition. It
waB a gloomy day for London. The
anxiety of every faee.from the east end
workingmen to the frequenters of St,
James' club, comported with the
dreary drizzling rain. London's comments on yesterday's official statement
was that It might mem little or
much. The bulletin of today forced
the conviction on tbe public mind that
it meant much. The officials told the
newspapers that they hoped for the
best, but their manner showed they
feared the worst. Withal tbe intelligence did not surprise the people.
While the queen was wonderfully
strong physically for her ace, the
cares and sorrows not only of the war
but arising from the death of her
grandson in South Africa, and of her
favorito lady in waiting, dowager
Lady Churchill at Christmas, affected
her vitally and the Empire awaited
the news from Osborne with the keen-
I est suspense in the memory of the
queen's subjects.
LONDON LETTER.
Captain of Lipton's Challenger  Talks
of Coming Contest.
London, Jan. 10.���Mr. Jackson,
treasurer of the Oxford Athletic club,
speaks hopefully of the prospects of
the Oxford-Cambridge and Harvard-
Yale games In New York. He informed a representative of the Associated
Press that while the negotiations have
not been resumed, they doubtless will
be this term.
George Manoscles, the society sharper who worked New York, and the
hospitals and who was discovered at
Genoa while starting for Constantinople selected Vienna as his last field
for operations, de called himself
Prince George De La Haworle. He Is
charged with stealing from a Russian
Grand Duchess a diamond necklace
valued at ��0,000, hence his arrest
Edward Sycamore, the captain of
the new challenger for the America's
cup, has arrived in London from Glasgow. He has refused to be interviewed but he has at last talked with a
representative of the Associated Press
to whom ho said: "It seems to me
that magnificent opportunities for
sport have been thrown away by the
'practice of taking a challenger to the
other side and using her there only
for the purpose of sailing the races
necessary to decide the onwership of
the America's cup. These boats, of
course, have been built with the object of bringing back the cup and that
must always remain their present
work. Shamrock II. will cross for
that object and nothing will be allowed to interfere with that. When
the races shall have been decided,how
ever, I should like her to bo sailed  to
a few races against the pick of the
American fleet for whatever prize be
offered. Tbe cup contest is sailed
under conditions calculated to give
the fairest possible test. Still it is
conservative that theBe very conditions might tell heavily against one
of the boats. I think ic would be
satisfactory to the owner and designer of the defeated boat and good for
sport to have a trial or two at open
racing. If we are fortunate enough
to win the cup, we would be glad it
our opponents had an opportunity for
revenge under other conditions. If
unfortunate enough to be beaten, we
would prefer an opportunity to try at
something else instead of the certainty of returning empty handed."
In view of Sir Thomas Lipton's
promise to take tbe Erin and possibly
the Shamrock II. to some of the principal American yachting centers, the
challenger is likely to be seen on
more courses than that at Sandy Hook
this fall.
RECRUITING
OFFICE HERE
Men Will Be Asked to Join
the Baden-Powell Constabulary.
Enlistment forms Now on the
Way From Ottawa���Military News.
Within a few days it is probable a
recruiting office will be opened' in
Nelson for the Baden-Powell constabulary. Dispatches front Ottawa indicate tbat the enlistment forms are being forwarded to the officers commanding the local militia companies
and on receipt of these steps will be
taken to receive applications. Until
the papers arrive it is impossible to
stale accurately what the. conditions
of service will be, but it is probable
that the requirements for recruits
will be about the same as for the
Strathcona Horse. Applicants must
be between the ages of 20 and 35
years, good riders and shots. The
usual course in recruiting for a permanent corps, such as the constabulary will bo, is to pick the men whose
physical condition is best suited to
the service and to train them for the
service after enlistment. The term
of enlistment will be four years and
the pay for privates five shillings per
diem with rations and equipment
free. The pay is much more liberal
thai Is allowed for the regular army
and for tbis reason enlistment is likely to be lively. Service in Baden-
Powell's police is certain to be exciting and men who are familiar with
the existing circumstances predict that
the police service is certain to be'dangerous and that the oorps will suffer
severely from "sniping" nntll the
country is restored to order. Major
Bennett, of tbe Duke of Connaught's
Rifles whose offer to recruit 100 British Columbians for the corps first
drew attention to tbe matteiyis slated
for the command of the company
from this province,
A number of changes are anticipated in connection with the local
in'lltla company. Lieut.-Col. Benson,
dlstriot officer commanding, has informed the local officers that tne pros-
peel is excellent for securing an addition to the establishment of the Nelson company of ten men and a subaltern. The extra section will be placed In charge of tbe Maxim gun and
will enable tho corps to man the gun
without making serious draft on the
strength and appearance of the company. Heretofore it has been necessary to detach an entire section from
the company for the work and the
result is to spoil the appearance of the
parade. Within a few months the
militia company is likely to be reorganized. H. E. Mncdonnell is mentioned in connection with the captaincy and several other appointments
are to be made in connection with
the establishment of officers.
without bonds, makes her guardian
of the minor children and gives her
one third of the estate. The remaining two-thirds is to be distributed
equally among Mr. Daly's four children, Mrs. Margaret Brown, of Baltimore, and Miss Mary and Harriet
Daly and his son MarcuB Daly. In the
event of the death of Mrs. Duly before
the trusts imposed upon her by the
will are executed, the four children of
the testators or their survivors are to
become trustees and executors in her
place without security. Any of the
children may during the life of the
trust dispose of his or her share by
will. The estate is valued at 820,000,-
000.

Chief Items of Interest in Mining For
the Week.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Rossland, B. C, Jan. 19.���The chief
feature of the week in mining was
the inauguration of shipping from the
Velvet mine on Sophie mountain.
Three carloads, aggregating 90 tons,
have been hauled to the Velvet siding
just below Sheep CreeK station and
will be sent to Nortbport smelter today or tomorrow. The road is in fine
condition and seven four horse teams
are employed in hauling ore from the
mine to the siding, nine miles.
About six tons are hauled on each
load. There is plenty of ore on the
dump and some 200,000 tons ready for
stoping in the Velvet mine that will
average 820 a ton. Some of the ore
goes much higher than this, but it
will average 82o, the values being lfl
gold and copper. The road should remain In good condition for the next
two months and the intention is to
ship 35 tons per day. The Great
Northern is surveying a line into the
Velvet and it is expected that a railroad will be built to the mine early
in the year.
The output of ore has been lighter
this week than it has been for some
time, owing to the Le Roi not shipping for a couple of days because the
smelter at Northport. is not ready.
The total shipments were 5,879 tons.
The Le Roi sent 2,683 tone, Centre
Star 2,160; War Eagle, 630! Iron
Mask, 180; LoRoi No. 2, 180; Giant,
23; and I. X. L., 23. Orders were given today to shut down the Giant and
this has been done. It is not known
to a certainty whether the deal for
its purchase by Gov. Mackintosh for a
London syndicate went through or
not,but the presumption is that it did,
although the principals of the transaction, Gov. Mackintosh and Mr. A.
D. Coplen, deny that a deal has been
made. Following are the shipments
for the week and year: Le Roi, week
2,683, year 9,333; Centre Star, week
2160; year 5,580; War Eagle, week
630, year 1,290; Iron Mask, week 180,

Kills Him Instantly.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Vancouver, B. C., Jan. 19.���There
was a terrible tragedy at Vernon, II.
C., last night. Leo English, a youth
of twenty years, shot his brother-in-
law, Thomas Carson, three times
through the body, killing him instantly, wounding William Carson in

SMELTER SITUATION
The Question as Looked at From the Standpoint of the Men Most Interested
In Its Settlement
During the past week a representative of The Miner has discussed with
several prominent mining and smelt
ing men all sides of the present smelter situation, a question of vital interest to the Kootenay country. The
Canadian smelter men and the operators of the principal dry ore mine in
the Kootenays appear well pleased
with the present situation, and this
mining men believe accounts for its
not being viewed so philosophically
by the chief produeers of silver lead
oreB.
The estimates of the output of silver
lead ores for 1901, (including dry ores
which at present do not amount to 5
per oont. of the total silver lead output), if not interfered with by legislation, wage disputes,or excessive smelter rates, has been oomputed by conservative smelter and mining men, as
likely to be from 100,000 to 125,000
tons for the aext 12 months, based upon an output of 60,000 tons from East
Kootenay, the balance being from
Sloean, Ainsworth, Lardeau, Nelson,
and other silver lead camps. Last
year upon a much lower output the
American smelters are estimated to
bave taken over 50 per cent, of the total year's product, the local smelters
being unable to smelt locally anything
like that output. Of this year's (1901)
output ot silver lead ores, it
is frankly admitted thnt the loca'. Canadian smelters oaa only smelt a small
portion. What is to become of tbe
remainder, is the problem, now that
the American smelters refuse to take
Kootenay silver lead ores.
It is stated that the Trail, Nelson,
Everett and San Francisco smelters
have entered into an arrangement to
aid one another in keeping up rates
and endeavoring to handle the expected output of 100,000 to 125,000 tons
this year. The East Kootenay ores,
have, in some instances, been shipped
to South America, and it is stated
that 50,000 tons of Kootenay silver
lead ore may this year be disposed
of in Europe, to the owners of which
will be paid the wages and profits of
smelting, which is a clear indication
that the local smelters are unable to
grapple with tbe present situation
and treat Ores locally.
The Canadian smelters have taken
advantage of the difficulty the mines
have had in disposing of their output
in every instance with the exception
of the above referred to dry ores, to
raise their rates, which on a 60 per
cent, lead ore, Buch as is the characteristic ore of tho Slocan, amounts to a
gross increase of 83.24 p-.*r ton, less a
reduction in freight of 81 per ton, or
a net increase of 82.24 per ton.
Should there be this year 100,000 tons
of this ore shipped it would mean an
extra cost of production to the mine
operators of 8224,000 for the year 1901,
which amount will have to be deducted from anticipated dividends, and
so render all mining properties, Including prospects,less valuable and attractive. Some of the readers of The
Miner may be unaware of the combination thut exists between the railroads
and smelters by which It is impossible
for mine owners to obtain a freight
rate direct from tbe railroad and independent of and separate from the
smelter rate. These arc arranged annually, generally In December, at a
secret meeting of Canadian and other
smelter representatives, the meeting
this year being held In Chicago. The
mine operator is compelled to deal direct with the smelter rpresentutive
who quotes (or does not quote) rates
which, however, in all instances art)
inclusive of the railroad freight rate.
The mining man hns no means of
knowing how much the smelter is
getting out of these rates, or what rebates are ullowed the smelter by tbe
railroad. These rebates are known to
be lnrge, and rumor has it that this is
the real contest now on between the
smelters and the railroads. Mining men
arc nil aware that the Kootenay mining Industry bos suffered severely
from increased cost of production due
to increase in wages and to increased
taxation, which Inter, on the basis ot
the estimate of the   product for   lfKII,
will entail extra taxes to the extent
of at least 8100,000 over that of 1900.
This, coupled with the increase in
wages, which, based upon the employment of 4,000 men, amounts to over
8000,000 per year, oi a total increase
in cost of operation of the mines, over
former conditions, for the year 1901
(supposing the mines operate tbe entire year) as follows:
Increase in   taxation 8100,000
Increase in smelter rates  224,000
Increase in cost of operation,
including increased wages,
coit of mill buildings and
other construction work, etc 600,000
Total  increase 8924,000
It has been stated that millions of profits have been made
by the Kootenay mines. During
the past two years, the present owners state, tbey would like to have
seen these profits, which, in fact,
have not been made during that period. It is perhaps interesting to r3-
fer to the reasons given by the Ameii-
cad smelters for refasing to take
British Columbia ores. These are
stated to be, tbat thu railroad rates
in British Columbia are so much in
excess of the rates obtained at competing points in the United States,
that it does not pay the American
smelters to treat British Columbia
ores that hare to be hauled over the
B. C. railways. This view of the
situation appears to be shared by Mr.
Gooderham of Toronto, tbe wealthy
banker and distiller, who is reported
to have expressed views condemnatory of the present British Columbia
railroad rates. Inquiry elicits tbe
information tbat all roads are
maintaining similar substantial rates.
It is well known tbat at a recent important meeting held in Sandon between prominent silver lead mine
owners and Mr. Braden, of the American Smelting and Refining Co., that
Mr. Braden stated he was prepared to
take any amount of silver lead ore at
reasonable smelter rates, if tbe railroads would meet them by reducing
tbeir freight rates. It is, however,
difficult to believe that the railroads
could for a moment entertain such a
abort sighted policy as combining
together to crush and paralyze the
mining industry of this country.
The tacts as gleaned above are
conclusive tbat the local smelters bave
seized upon the opportunity afforded
by the temporary withdrawal of Mr.
I Braden's companies, to raise the net
I combined smelter and freight rates a
net 82.24 per ton on tbe 60 per cant,
lead ores of Kootenay.
As a result of the Sandon meetlag
above referred to concerted actios between the mines is probable; this is an
effort to offset such combinations as
are working adversely to their already
heavily handicapped lndustiy. Practical men agree that If tbe existing
Canadian smelters can handle ores at
a profit (and their seeking ores again
this year is a proof thereof),the mines
can do likewise for themselves by erecting their own plants,as it it confideat-
ly stated that the question of dry ore
supplies will lie solved in the near
future. The smelting of the copper
ores, which output���if the large
Rossland and Uoundary companies
operate their mines at their reasonable
capacity���should amount lu 19(11 to
from 750,000 to 1,000,000 tons, la not
affected by the increased rates Imposed upon the lead no per cent, ores aud
the negotiations for the purchase of
the Trail smelter by Mr. Gooderham
doel not affect the lead question except indirectly, as lend ores are treated as well as copper at the Trail smelter. The silver lead industry has had
so many set backs, what with
shrinkage In the price of their
products, silver and lead, In 1893,
increased cost of production, and
extra taxation, that mining men are
aghast at this henvy further rate
imposed on them by the smelters.
If a four per cent, tax Is imposed,
ns is suggested In some quarters, on
jres exported, with a rebate of 2 per
oent. allowed on oren treated.In Canada, many of the mines would have to
close down, for It Is conceded hy all
capable of giving reliable information,
that thn capacity of Canadian smelters oould not treat one half of this
year's anticipated output. In addition to this, mining men say that any
serious increase in the assessment Act,
in which is included the mineral.tax,
cannot full to still further injure tho
mining Industries, /

"GOD SAVE THE QUEEN."
"The Queen of England lies at
death's door," waa the message flashed last night beneath the leas and
over land to every portion of the
globe. It was a message bound some
day to come, but one which, if the
prayers of all the universe were heard
and answered, would bave been postponed for many years. To those
whose ruler Victoria has been for
three score years the message carries with It more than a message
of impending death of any other
ruler could oarry to that ruler's sub
jects. Victoria is more than Queen to
Britishers. She is tbe embodiment of
all tbat a good woman is and for this
is loved and revered by all her people. And to tbe people of other nations the message will tell of a grand
life going out. and of the end of a
reign which has carried freedom, enlightenment and Christianity to all
quarters of the globe. It will be a
message which will stir more hearts
than any message since the metallic
wires first placed themselves at the
seivice of mankind. From the battlefields of South Africa, from far
away Australia and Mew Zealand,
from India, from Canada, from England, Ireland and Scotland, and from
all portion of the earth where her
subjects are gathered, the prayer will
go up this morning "Ood Save tbe
Queen." _______���-__
" The first bulletin received in The
Miner office relating to the condition
of Queen Victoria was received at 4
o'clock yesterday afternoon.   It read .
"Osborne, 6 p. m., Jan. 19.���TV.
following official bulletin has beer issued: The Queen's strength has been
fairly maintained through tbe day,
and there are indications of a slight
improvement in tbe symptoms tbis
evening. (Signed) James Reed,
R, Douglas Powell."
This was followed at 6 o'clock by
tbe bulletin appearing on the first
page of this issue. Tbe one reproduced above was the first indication of
the serious illness of ber majesty. On
Friday afternoon there was published
in The Miser a dispatch telling of rumors of serious illness but these wera
denied by members of tbe government
and of the Queen's household. There
had been similar dispatches received
in the past but la every case tbey had
afterwards pro-red to be either unfounded or exaggerated. Therefore
little attention was paid to yesterday's reports. The bulletin first received yesterday afternoon indicated
something serious however. It was
the first time In many years that tbe
health of the queen demanded a daily
report to her subjects, and tended to
confirm the rumors which gained currency on Fiiday but whijh were so
promptly denied. The icports received
lust night set aside all doubt and today will be one of anxious waiting
everywhere.
BE WISHED HIM WELL.
The little Englanders arc not gaining in popularity in Oreat Britain. A
London dispatch mentions that among
the Christmas gifts sent to prominent
people was one received by Mr. Henry
Lubmiche.ro. consisting of an outside
page of Truth, with the head of Mr.
Krnger substituted for that of Truth,
and inscribed below: "May your
Christmas dinner choke you and the
New Year see you in hell." Commenting on this In his paper, Mr. La-
bouohere says: "I am really grateful,
because It was witty."
MAYOR "JOHN" FLETCHER.
Nelson settled her municipal fight
in a sensible way. Tbe people picked
out "John" Fletcher for mayor, and
five good men for aldermen, and then
said, "these people go." That settled It. There was no election, no
contest,nothing but universal acquies

OPERATIC   SOCIETY BALL.
The Ball Next Friday Night Promises to Be a Great Success.
The committee in charge of the arrangements for the ball, to be given
next Friday evening at tbe opera
house by the Nelson Operatic Society,
ate working hard to insure the great
est success of the season. The opera
house will be especially decorated for
the ball and no pains will be spared
to malte it most attractive. Mayor
Fleteher and Mrs. Fletcher will act as
patrons of the affair and will probably receive the guests. Wambold's
orchestra of eight pieoes has been especially engaged for the dance and
can be counted upon to furnish the
best music to be heard in Nelson.
Two or three new dances will be
plajed during the evening. An attractive programme of twenty danoes
has been arranged with four extras.
The members of the society and orchestra will do their beat to make the
dance a success. The c*iolr rehearsals
at St. Saviour's' and St. Paul's
churches have been postponed to a
later date so as not to prevent any
ohoir members attending the ball.
Tickets can be had from any member
of the committee as no invitations
have been issued.
FENIAN RAID MEDAL.
Normal D. Stewart of Nelson, Receives His From Ottawa.
Norman D. Stewart, of this city,
has received the medal issued by the
Canadian government to the volunteers who served during the Fenian
raids. In 1870 Mr. Stewart turned
out as a private in the ranks of tbe
Fifty-First Stonewall Rifles under
Captain Livingstone. The corp's
best service was in connection with
the repulse of a body of 300 Fenians
at Trout River southwest of Montreal.
The militiamen were supported by a
small seotion of regulars from the
Quebec garrison, and marched to meet
the invaders 200 strong. When the
parties met the Fenians fired but one
volley which did but little damage to
the Canadians. The Canadians replied and the Fenians took to their
heels. The Canadians chased them
for a considerable distance, killing If)
of tne Fenians and capturing most of
their arms and equipment. After
this service the Stonewall Rifles were
nnder arms for some time but were
not called upon again to meet the
enemy.

of Toronto, now in Nelson, makes the
following stntments. "Before applying
to you for treatment my eyes were
giving me so much trouble and causing so much pain that I had quite de
sided to give up ny business as a
blacksmith, as the glow of the forge,
aad banding under horses was so
hard on them. 1 had consulted the
best eye doctors on tbe Pacific coast
and they could give me no help but I
am pleased to say that by the aid of
the spectaales you prescribed for me I
am able to work all day at the Hie
and tbe finest work without incurring
the least inconvenience and am entire
ly free from the head and eye aches
and general defects of sight from
which I formerly suffered. I bave
been wearing your glasses for nearly
three years and cannot express tho
thanks I feel."

A GOOD THING.
German Syrup is the special prescription of Dr. A. BoBhee, a celebrated German Physician, nnd is acknowledged to be one of the most fortunate discoveries in Medicine. It
quickly cures Coughs, Colds and Lung
troubles of the severest nature, removing, as It does, the cause of the affec-
ton and leaving the parts in a strong
and healthy condition. It is not an
experimental medicine, but lias stood
the test ot years, giving satisfaction
In every case, which Its rapidly increasing dale every season confirms.
Two million bottles sold annually.
Boscha'a German Syrup was introduced In the United States in 1868,
and It now sold in every town and
village in the civilized world. Three
doses will relieve any ordinary cough.

Eminent Dootor Orders Grape-Nut*
An old physician in Washington,
D. C, comments on the general practice government employes have of taking with them for luncheon buttered
rolls and a variety of non-nutritious
articles of food which they bolt down
and go on with their work.
Ultimately dyspepsia and gastric
trouble ensue, and in all such cases
where he has been cnlled to abandon
all sorts of food for the noonday lunch,
except Crape-Nuts, which is a ready-
cooked, predigestcd food and a concentrated form of nourishment. This
is eaten with a little fresh milk or
cream which can be secured from the
vendors who pass through the buildings during the noon hour. The doctor Bays: "Kor many reasons I would
prefer not to have my name used publicly. Do not object to your furnish ���
Ing same to any honest inquirer. I
have been prescribing Orape-Nuts in
numerous cases for about a yoar and a
half and am pleased to say my patients hnve reason to he thoroughly
satisfied with the results. lam myself
a strong believer in Grape-Nuts and
shall continue to be so long as the preparation gives the results I have obtained thus far." The doctor's name

Another Good Hockey Game Arranged
For Nelson Team.
Manager Sam Neelands of the Nelson hookey club received a telegram
from Rossland last night informing
bim that the Rossland seven would
come to Nelson for a game on Tuesday night. The local players practice
Monday night for the game which is
sure to be one of the fastest and
most exciting of the season. The
Rossland players are clever hockeyists
and have had more practice than tbe
Nelson men, to counteract which the
home players know the ice and thu
experience of one hard game already
with a visiting team. The game
starts at 8:30 o'clock sharp and is sure
to attract a crowded house.
On Friday night 300 enthusiasts witnessed the Nelson team getaway with
the Sandon seven quite handily. The
loual players lined up with Neelands
in goal, Archibald on point, Jeffs at
cover point, and Wetruore, Nace, Per-
rier and Thompson on the forward
line. Sandon led off with a goal after
a few minutes play. This was their
only tally until well into tbe second
half when they scored again. In the
meantime Nelson kept the puck in the
visitor's territory and scored seven
goals. The visitors were distinctly
outplayed and in spots the game was
very fast. The Sandon men proved to
be game and sportsmanlike players and
aro assured of a warm welcome on the
occasion of future visits to the city.

"I was troubled for several years
with chronic indigestion and nervous
debility, "wiites F. J. Green, of Lancaster, N. H., "No remedy helped me
until I began using Electric Bitters,
which did me more good than all the
medicines I ever used. They have also
kept my wife in excellent health for
years. She Bays Electric Bitters are
just splendid for female troubles; that
they are a grand tonic and invigora-
tor for weak, run down women. No
other medicine can take its place in
our family." Try; them. Only 50
cents. Satisfaction guaranteed by
