Portsmouth, Jan. 30.���The warships
are assembling for Friday's great
naval pageant. The arrangements
which have been completed provide
that eight torpedo boat destroyers
will lead the procession from Cowes,
followed by tbe royal yacht Alberta,
with the Queen's body on board. Following this will be the royal yaeht
Victoria and Albert, with King Edward and Queen Alexandra and the
English royal familv, the royal yacht
Osborne, with other royalties, the imperial yacht Hohenzollern with Emperor William, the Duke and Duchess
of Connaught and others, the admiralty yacht Enchantress and a Trinity
house yaoht, with the officials on
board.
Tbe main squadron of battleships
and cruisers will be moored two and
a half oables apart in one line extending from Cowes to Spithead. The
Channel fleet, under the command of
Vice Admiral Sir Henry Houldsworth
Rawson, will form the eastern portion, and the reserve fleet, under Rear
Admiral Sir George Henry Noel, will
form the western portion. The foreign war vessels are to be moored
southwest of the British ships in the
or.ier of their arrival and alongside of
them will be moored eight British-
gunboats, the Antelope, (1 leaner,Ship-
jack, Lede, Rattlesnake, Alert, Circe
and Speedwell.
After leaving Trinity pier, the Alberta with her attendant escort will
steam along the deep channel between
the coast of the Isle of Wight and the
single line of battleships and cruisers.
The mainline will be as follows, beginning at Cowes:   Alexandra,   Cam-
perdown, Rodney,

On the arrival at Portsmouth the
royal yachts will remain in the harbor that night. Minute guns will be
fired by all the ships in the Solent and
at Cowes, commencing when the Alberta leaves the pier. Each ship will
be directed to cease firing immediately after the tall of the procession has
passed her. After the procession lias
passed the Majestic, the forts and
ships in Portsmouth harbor will commence firing minute guns and continue
firing until the Alberta is alongside
the wharf. No standard will be displayed and ensigns and Union .lacks
will be at half mast. The bands are
to play tho funeral marches of Chopin
and Beethoven only. The national
anthem also will be played.
On the approach of the procession

harbor. All the sen front aud the
dockyards will be manned by murines
and sailors while Harrow Island is to
be manned by boys from tho training
ship St. Vlnoent and men from the
gunnery ship Excellent,
The Spanish battleship Pelavo,
Spain's representative at the funeral,
is oummauded by Oapt. Diaz. Moreau,
who was commander of the Christopher Colon which was lost In the battle of Santiago.
SCENE IN LONDON.
London, Jan. 30.���The procession
in London, as Indicated by the war
office orders issued this afternoon,
will be a gorgeous military pageant.
Detachments of forty regiments,
with an almost equal number of distinctive uniforms embracing all arms
of tbe service, will make a constantly
changing picture. The uniforms of
all the great armies of the world will
appear, and in addition to the brilliant entourage of the v'siting kings
and princely envoys, there will be the
military attaches of the embassies
and legations. All the field marshalls
of the British army, able to endure
the fatigue, will ride with their
staffs. The naval corps will also take
part in the procession, which will be
two miles long.
Londoners are just awakening to the
fullest proportion of the obsequies
and the result of the days of mourning, which to numerous tradesmen
and others means absolute closure and
is causing consternation. Suddenly
to stop every industry in the United
Kingdom and to turn the masses into
the streets with millions hoping to
concentrate along the two miles of
the route of the procession is an undertaking which has begun to be fully
appreciated by" the police, but the
public of London is dismayed to find
that all the great markets,Covent Garden, Smithfield and others, where the
food of the metropolis is supplied,
are to be absolutely closed at the end
of the week.
Restaurants and bars will be shut
down and the crowds will have to
wander in the streets. There is a
world in itself living from hand to
mouth; and the closing of the accustomed avenues for the supply and
distribution of food, drink and amusement from Friday to Monday will
mean a loss and inconvenience that
no American city could appreciate.
London learned last year bow to-
tall/ Inadequate the police and military are to protect, and the apprehensions of Saturday's crush are enough
to appal Londoners, but, apparently,
these considerations do not deter thousands of every rank from flocking to
the metropolis.
OBSEQUIES AT WINDSOR.
STORES ARE
IN MOURNING
Chief Dignitories   of   the   Church   to
. Conduct the Service.
Windsor, Jan. 31.���Rehearsals of the
distinctive features of the obsequies
are recurring constantly. Practically
the whole of the royal borough will
he draped In mourning, whereas elsewhere, only the route of the procession
will be thus marked. The services
in St. George's chapel begin at 2
o'clock. The body is expected to arrive at Windsor at 1:30 p. ra. The
route to the chapel, which occupies
half an hour,will be lined with troops
two deep, the Eton volunteers participating with the guards.
The service will be tbe ordinary service used for the burial of the dead
with special music. The choir will
sing from the altar steps whence also
the Garter King of Arms will an
nouncc the decease of the sovereign
and all her titles. Accommodation
has been reserved on the left of the
coffin for the princesses. The King
and other orownod bends will stand
at its head. The service on Saturday
will be conducted by tho Archbishop
of Canterbury, tho Bishop of Winchester and the Dean of Windsor.
The Archbishop of York and the Bishop ot  Oxford will be present.
Masses of flowers made up in crosses
and crowns from rare blossoms that
aie the gifts of royal personages down
to bumble posies sent in by children,
several thousands of flower pieces, including tokens from most of the members of the aristocracy, numerous
clubs, country towns, cities and societies, regiments, inmates of workhouses and even the smallest nosegays
are laid out for publio view side by
side with the designs of the great
florists. Some of the flowers are fud-

NO WORK SAT UK DAY.
London, Jan. 30.���During the morning King Edward proslded at a meeting of the privy council. The business transacted was of a formal
character. The King signed a proclamation suspending business on Saturday thoughout the United Kingdom,
The closing down will be so complete that even the restaurants and
saloons will ue shut up for four or
Ave hours In the middle of the day.
Some of tha uftcrnoon newspapers
will not be published on Saturday.
KINO AT COWEfl.
Cowes, Jan. 30.���King Edward arrived here soon after four o'clock.
Count Von Eulenberg, Emperor Wll-
Jlam's grand court marshal,accompanied him. A large crowd of spectators
were present.
Letters received here from the government offices at Ottawa are written
on square mourning papnr, tbe black
edge being a quarter of an Inch wide.
The   Merchants  of  Nelson
Rise Generally to the
Occasion.
A Short Description of Some
of the Best Draped
Windows.
The Nelson merchants are very
generally decorating in mourning
hues as a token of respect for Saturday's observance of the late Queen's
funeral. In many instances the windows are effectively draped, considerable taste being shown in the arrangement of the displays.
The centerpieoe in William Hunter
Co. 's store is a portrait of the departed sovereign draped in black and
overhung with union jacks. The
balance of the window is draped
w'th black relieved by flowers. F. A.
Tamblyn has a neatly arranged window, the principal feature of which
is a portrait of the late Queen draped
with black tied with purple ribbon.
Black hangings with purple streamers
complete the display.
J. F. Weir and ��� Charles Parker
have their windows hung with purple and black steamers.
Lillie Bros, window is purple,
backed with black curtains part of
which are draped with white ribbons.
Black shoes onlyjare shown and tbe
effect is exc llent.
T.Dover has a window filled in with
black cloth relieved here ana there
with purple ribbons.
Hamilton Byers tit Co. have a couple
of well dressed windows. Both are
hung throughout in black and purple. One contains a portrait of the
late Queen with a portrait of the Duke
and Duchess of Cornwall at one side.
The other has the portraits of the
King and Queen beneath wbich are
the words "the King and Queen."
picked out in Mauser cartridges
Martin O'Reilly tit Co. still show
the handsome window design which
tbey arranged on the day of the
Queen's death. Fred Irvine & Co.,
Kerr tit Co., and Paternaude Bros, also
adhere to their original displays.
The Nelson Hardware Co. exhibit a
very large portrait of the late Queen
heavily draped in black with a display of rifles in the foreground.
J. A. Gilker has one of his large
show windows filled in with puiple
and black with suitable goods displayed while the other is finished in black
and white.
Kirkpatrlck & Wilson have a strk-
ing display in purple and black.
Streamers of these hues are draped
from the plate glass front to the back
of the window as a sciting for a portrait of tbe late Queen, the effect being quite novel.
The Lawrence Hardware Co. also
show a portrait of the late Queen
appropriately draped. The Dominion
Express Company have festooned the
window of their olllce with crape and
draped a couple of pictures of royalty.
Tho Royal Hank and Hank of Com-
meice huve each draped their entrances with the purple and black of
the royal mourning with excellent
effect.
Tho west window of the Hudson's
liny Stores is devoted to tho insignia
of mourning, a tasteful design having
been arranged. Tho front of the
Hamilton Powder Co.'s office is also
draped with black and purple.
In other stores more or less effftrt
has been made to comply with the request of Mayor Fletcher in the matter of draping business houses. Others
will doubtless follow the example
prior to Saturday.
ANOTHER DISASTER AT SEA.
Pieces of Wreckages Strewn Along
the Const,
Viotorln, Jan. 30,���News was
brought by the Queen City tonight
that much wreckage has been found
rn the west const. Four days ago a
piece of teak believed to bo from tho
back of a ship's boat was picked upon
Ilonllla point by Lighthouse Keeper
I'n.vlii'i. It had tho letters Andra out
into it,nnd it is believed to havo come
from the missing ship whicli was
blown from the Columbia some weens
ago.   On an   island near  Kyoquot, a
pair of oars, lead color, ten feet long,
stamped with the letter "H," a bundle of corn brooms, and much lumber
of all kinds lay on the beach for miles
and a number of tins of salmon without label were found there. There
was lumber all along the coast.
The Queen City brought another
8(ipo from Wreck Bay placers. The
cutter Grant waB' seen at Cloose.
LACROSSE IN AUSTRALIA.
A British Columbia Team   May Tour
There.
(SPECIAL, TO THE MINER.)
Vancouver, Jan, 30.���H. H. Allans*-
ham, Vancouver, has received official
notice that the colonies of New South
Wales, Victoria and South Australia,
have come up with their guarantee of
��200 sterling each, towards the expenses of a Canadian lacrosse team's
tour through Australia. Mr. Allang-
ham, who is the father of the scheme
to send a Canadian lacrosse team to
Australia, states tbat all his efforts
to enthuse Montreal and Toronto have
been in vain, and if the guarantee of
the Australian colonies is to be taken
advantage of, the team visiting Australia must be made up of British Columbia players, something after this
fashion : Five from New Westminster
and the balance from Vancouver,
Victoria and Nelson. Mr. Allangham
is calling a meeting of lacrosse enthusiasts this week with the idea of
arranging a plan by which an additional $3,000 may be raised in British
Columbia in the shape of a supplementary guarantee to the touring
team. It has been suggested that the
Provincial government be asked to
contribute $1,000, the several city
councils 81,000,between them and that
an additional $1,000 be raised by a
series of popular concerts.
TWO NORTHERN TRAGEDIES.
Japs Caught Selling Liquor to
Indians.
Victoria, Jan. 30.���The steamer
Willapa brings news that on the 22nd
two Indians arrived at Port Simpson
and reported to the government agent
that the schooner Kionso, Port Roberts, Wash., was, found drifted on
Dundas Island, with two men dead
in her. Clothes of ohildren were
found on the beach. The names of the
dead could not be learned or how
many were lost.
Harman Wooster, tannery man of
Skeena, was found drowned on January 21. He left in a skiff to go to bis
sloop on January 12 and on not arriving his wife went ashore on the 20th
and informed the agent who Instituted a search. Wooster was found
floating next day.
Discoveries of black sand have been
made at the extreme north of Vancouver island.
The Indian agent today seized 16
cases of liquors consigned to Japanese
who were alleged to be supplying Indians. The liquor was intended for a
put Inch which the Indians propose to
hold.
POLYGAMISTS  NOT   WANTED.
Question Came Up in the Agriculture
Appropriation Bill.
Washington, Jan. 30.���The anti-
polygamy crusade which resulted in
driving Mr. Roberts, Utah's representative, from his seat at the last
session had an echo In the house today during the consideration of the
Agriculture Appropriation bill. When
the section making the appropriations for agriculture colleges of the
several states wns reached, Mr. Landls
of Indiana offered nn amendment pro-
vidlng*tliat no money should be paid
to the college In Utah until the secretary of agriculture was satisfied that
no trustee or tenchor in the institution practised polygamy. The amendment came as u complete surprise.
Mr. King who succeeded Mr. Roberts
tried In vain to head it off with a
point of order nnd then Inveighed
against it as simply an aftermath of
thu Roberts crusade. He insisted
that polygamy was a thing of the
past. Mr. Landls replied by alleging
that two of the professors of the Utah
agricultural college were polygamsts
and that one of the trustees had seven
wives nnd 31) children. The amendment wus ndopted.
Subsequently when the bill was reported to the house, the Landls
amendment wus stricken out by a vote
of (II) to 111.    The bill passed.
HOCKEY AT SANDON.
Sandon,   Jan.    30.���In   the  hockey

REVIEW FOR
LAST MONTH
January   Shows   Increased
Mining Activity Everywhere.
Several Mines Have Recently
Reached a Shipping
Basis.
The first month in the new century
bas witnessed several interesting developments of the mining industry.
The period opened with a feeling of
unrest in tbe silver-lead camps of tbe
district bcause of the smelter trust's
refusal to renew old contracts but the
feeling of unrest has passed away or
the mine operators now understand
exactly what they have to face in the
way of freight and treatment charges.
The most apparent effect of tbis move
on the part of the smelters is the recent closing down of the St. Eugene
concentrator. The C. P. R. is said to
have been the direct cause of this and
a heavy increase in the rate on St.
Eugene concentrates was the instrument in the railroad's hands. The
general impression is, however, that
tbe C. P. R. must, in justice to itself,
as deeply interested in the advancement of the country, concede a .few
points rather than permit the St. Eugene to lie idle and act as a drag on
the development of the district. Other
properties are shipping as usual.
The failure of the Globe concern in
England was thought to be a serious
setback to the mining industry in this
province in common with other parts
of the world. Apparently no very serious harm has been done as yet. No
English companies operating in the
country havs closed down. In fact
within the month at least one English
concern has taken up property in the
Kimberley camp, and it is freely stated tbat several bonds recently made in
the Slocan were on behalf of companies, capital for which had been secured in England. Local promoters are
adhering to their plans for the spring
campaign and do not look for any particular trouble.
In the Nelson district January has
been a month of marked progress
While in no special instance bave tbe
advances been sensational, in the
aggregate the indications of progress
cannot fail to elicit attention. Many
mining camps have been boomed far
and wide on the strength of less real
progress than has been witnessed in
the last  month about Nelson.
During Januaiy a couple of properties have entered the shipping list on
an extensive scale. The London
Consolidated shipped some ore Inst
month from tbeir Silver Hill mine
but it was not until January that the
real shipping operations commenced.
During the last thirty days the output
of ore hus aggregated close to 1,000
tons, and, while the management has
declined to issue any statement as to
the roturns, it is freely reported thut
tho month's output has netted not less
than $-10,000. The Molly Gibson also
shipped in December und previous to
thut month, but during January the
shipments wero regular and large,
practically indicating that the property is now on a proper shipping
basis, At both mines the development
Is kept well ahead of the mining
operations and both promise to be
shortly regarded as among the banner
producers in the Nelson district.
Much was accomplished at the Highland mine near Ainsworth. The loo-
ton concentrator which had been under way there for several months was
completed and commenced crushing.
The plant has worked smoothly and
is undoubtedly among the best mills
in the country, a spoclal feature being
the labor saving devices adopted for
delivering the ore from the mill to the
wharf. The first shipment of concentrates from the Highland mill will
be delivered to the Hall Mines smelter
today. The advent of the Highland
to the permanent producing stage adds
another important porperty to the list
of mines whicli help to build up the
country's reputation as a Held for Investment.
The United Gold Fields took stcpB
during January to place their May
and Jennie property on Forty-Nine
creek on a producing basis hy installing a stump mill, or, rather making
the initial  move  in   this  direction,
Two cars of the plant were delivered
at Granite last week and arrangements arc being made to transport the
outfit to the mill site.
At the Poorman mine an interesting
experiment was made with the Rand
baby drill, a one-man machine of
which much was expected. It was
demonstrated that the drill did excellent work and it is stated that tbe
company will put in several more
drills at an early date. Operations at
the Poorman have gone on quietly
and the mill has, been running constantly, about 1,000 tons of ore having
been treated, the result of which will
be^ known later. The piogramme of
work for the Granite has not been
settled as yet. It is expected, however, that this work will be commenced within a comparatively short time
and that the operations will be on an
extensive scale.
Nothing of special Importance has
developed at the Silver King mine
where development is proceeding
steadily. The new plant brought in
to expedite tbe opening up of the
lower levels is in position and in tbis
respect the mine stands in a very different position at the present time
than it did at the first of the   month.
The cyanide plant at the Athabasca
mine is complete or almost bo, the
final touches having been put on this
month. This addition to tbe reduction works will enable the management to handle the tailings from the
mill, and from now on the returns
from tho Athabasca will be solely in
bullion instead of containing a large
item for values represented in tbe
tailings. Another feature is tbat the
Athabasca will be enabled to treat the
Exchequer ores which are not susceptible to the free-milling process.
At the Tamarac mine, near Ymir, a
tramway is in the last stages of construction and will be in operation
early in the coming month. The tram,
which is being built by B. C. Riblet,
of Nelson, Is 0500 feet long and will
have a capacity of 100 tons a day.
When the tramway is in operation this
mine will also join the ranks of the
shippers.
In the Slocan the month has been
one of considerable activity. Several
deals have been put through, others
advanced almost to the final stage and
several strikes of more than ordinary
importance are recorded. At the Enterprise, on Ten Mile creek, tunnel
No. 2 cuts the vein in ten inches of
clean ore which assayed 40 ounces silver and 00 per cent lead. At the
Phoenix back of Slocan City tbe development work came into ore of good
width and quantity while similar
strikes were made at other properties.
February opens up with all the
proportieB in the vicinity of Nelson
working with full crews and a probability of advances during the monti.
equal to those of January.
��� ���   ���
A. II. Gracey returned yesterday
from Lexington mountain after a trip
of inspection over the Imperial Development Syndicate's property. He
states that there has been no special
change in the aspect of affairs since
his last inspection, und thnt the properties aro showing up well. The syndicate has about 20 men on the ground
and tho work in hand consists of seven
tunnels under way at various points.
The greatest depth attained in any of
the tunnels is no feet at which level
the ore seems to be identical in appearance and richness with that found
on the surface.
��� ���   ���
It Is reported here that tho Ottawa
group on Springer creek has been
bonded to the new syndicate whicli J.
Malllnson Williams has formed In
England. The price Is stated to have
been In the neighborhood of 8.10,000
whicli Is a fair price for the property
in Its present shape. The Ottawa is
one of the oldest locations on tho
creek and the pioneers of tbe section
set it down on the list of claims which
would round Into a mine with development. Recent work has shown up the
pioperty In good shape aud considerable high grade ore could be shipped
this winter if desired.
��� ���   ���
Randolph 13. Fishhurn has returned
from n trip to the Bachelor property
which he is developing on Two Mile
Creek near Sloean City. The Huchclor
is one of tho dry ore properties in the
.Slocan so much In demand at tho
present time because of tho self fluxing properties of the ore. A contract
for Km feet of tunnelling on the vein
has been let and tho work will be concluded during February. Tho vein is
not wide but carries excellent values
and if furthei work demonstrates that
it holds good with depth, the Bachelor will prove a valuable   proposition.
POSITION IN THE
CITY OF PEKIN
The Punishment of Chinese
Officials Is Still Discussed.
Missionaries Suggest Amendments to Note of the
Powers.
Pekin, Jan. 30.-The minister's
punishment committee met this morning to continue the discussion of what
measure of punishment to demand for
provincial officials, where foreigners
have been killed. The ministers refused to furnish any information as
to the result of their deliberations. A
meeting of all the ministers will
probably be held tomorrow.
Three Italian soldiers intending to
loot, entered a house occupied by Mr.
Janiieson, an American, near the legation, supposing it to be inhabited
by Chinese. They insulted Mr. Jamie-
son's guests and Mr. Jamieson sent for
the guard stationed at the legation.
In tbe struggle an Italian was wounded. They were all arrested and turned over to the Italian authorities who
have requested  an   explanation.
The missionaries last night met and
prepared final resolutions which were
presented to the British minister, Sir
Ernest Salow and to Minister Conger
today. The preamble sets forth the
faef'not sufficiently emphasized in the
note," that the Chinese attacked
everything representing progress; that
there has been no adequate rebuke of
the flagrant violation of treaties and
that no indemnity is asked for the
Chinese Christians who suffered heavy
loss. Finally, the missionaries say
nothing bas been inserted in the note
safeguarding the missionaries, and
they earnestly requested Sir Ernest
Salow and Mr. Conger to see that the
former treaties protecting missionaries
are reaffirmed, that tbe government
should be forced to live in tbe interior, that friendly intercourse between
the i missionaries and officials be en
couraged and tbat relief should be
found for tbe suffering native Christians.
The missionaries earnestly hope
that Great Britain and the United
States will take a leading part in tbe
coming transformation of China, helping the rulers to enter those lines of
reform which alone can save the
country.
OPERATIONS IN CHINA.
London, Jan. 31.���A strong German
force, with a month's supplies and

The mining season ot 1001 bids fair
to be a prosperous one. Elsewhere
will be found a sketch of the progress
made during January in some of the
properties tributary to Nelson. The
account is by no means exhaustive,
but it indicates a steady development
right along the line. The London tit
Globe smash will undoubtedly render
the flotation of new mining companies more difficult for a while, but
meritorious propositions can always
find a purchaser. In the meantime
dividends are tbe best advertisement
this country can have. A dividend
paying mine makes each of its shareholders an advertising medium for
British Columbia. A great deal of

note that increasingly handsome returns are likely to be reaped therefrom.       __________
The sad but impressive naval scene
between Cowe6 and Portsmouth will
remind many of the great naval review off Spithead (near Portsmouth)
when 125 British war vessels were
drawn up in two lines, without counting the foreign squadrons, on the occasion of the Diamond Jubilee nearly
four yearB ago. But what a difference 1 Then it was a great empire rejoicing in the prolonged reign of a beloved sovereign, and in tbe blessings
her rule had brought; tomorrow, the
fleet that rules the seas will Btand
Bentinel while the remains of their
dead Queen are borne to their last,
long home, the last resting place of us

NEW COMPANY LAW.
The general opinion in London is
that we shall see very few new companies floated for some time to come,
as the new English company law has
put a serious obstacle in the way.
The promoters and vendors have to
state in the prospectus what their
profits are, a perfectly fatal provision
from the promoteis' point of view.
Even the most respectable flotation
involves the multiplication of the
purchase price by three, before the
property can pass from the original
owner to the company. The margin
partly goes to one aud another, promoters or intermediaries, and partly
to Stock Exchange firms, as induce
ments to create a market. What will
happen when shareholders find that
such large slices go to their advisers
remains to be seon, but it is obviouB
that promoters and Stock Exchange
men are not enamored of the new
law. They threaten, therefor, to take
up no new companies unless there is
some amendment to the iaw.���Engineering and Mining Journal.

Berlin, Jan. 30.���It is noteworthy
how coolly the Gorman press treats
the news regarding the. honors shown
to Emperor William and the Crown
Prince in England. Couipnratvely little comment is made. However, the
alleged remarks of the kaiser with reference to the little sympathy displayed
by the Reichstag and the Prussian
liiet in connection with the death of
Queen Victoria, although frequently
repudiated, still continue to be challenged by the ultra conservative
papers.

In speeches opposing the bill und severely arraigning its alleged favoritism. Mr. Jones declared it should

ENGLAND'S EMBLEM.
The following- is contributed by
Jerry: Jereraie Robillard say that
No. !l is the embleme of the House of
England. The Due of Kent tbe father
of our present Queen was one member
of a family of i) children. Queen

she was 19 years of age, she had 9
children and the drst born child it
was on the 9th of November. The one
who married the daughter of Christian IX. of Daneraark. and she was 19
year of age and as far as we can
guest part of the above mention royal

THE CJNARU LINE.
From statistics at hand it appears
the Cunard line landed in America
last year 32,970 steerage passengers.
This line is now in a better position
than ever to take care of its constantly increasing steerage passenger traffic. With tbeir already grand fleet
of floating palaces, i. e., Campania,
Lueanin. Uinbria, Servia, Aurania,
etc., and the late additions, viz., tbe
-magnificent new twin-screw steamers
Saxonia and Ivernia, 000 feet long,
13,930 tons, having special new features for steerage passengers, in fact,
twentieth century steerage accommodation, and the large twin-screw
steamer Ulonla, 313 feet long, 9,-
000 tons (lattor carrying steerage
passengers only), the Cunard line will
be able to maintain a service of two
steamers each week, with fortnightly extra sailings during the rush sea
bop, thereby giving ample room for
all passengers at all seasons, giving
them prompt transportation with no
delays.

HARD LINES
To Make a Han Toe the Mark.
To take both tobacco and coffee
away from a man seems pretty tough,
but the doctor ordered me to quit
both as my health was very poor, and
I had got where I could do but little
work.
About a month after quitting I commenced on tobacco again because I
could hardly stand it. I got along
without the coffee for the reason that
I had taken up Postum Food Coffee,
which I found very relishing to tho
appetite   and wonderfully   beneficial.
I have gained twenty-live pounds by
its ubo, and today I am a well man
I discovered in this way that It was
the old fashioned coffee that hurt me
and not tbe tobacco. When I first
tried Postum I did not relish it, but
found that it was not made right,
that is, they did not boll it long
enough. Next time it came on the
take it was fine and I have been using it ever since.
Mr. Fetcher, an old soldier of this
pace, was troubled wich dyspepsia. I
told him of my experience and my
cure, and told him to quit coffee and
one Postum Food Coffee. This was
some time ago. I saw him yesterday
and he told me he had not felt better
in twenty years, and nothing would
induce bim to go back from Postum
to the use of common coffee. He had
the same trouble in getting it made
right to sturt with.
John Asbford of Dillon was also
troubled with dyspepsia. I told him
of my cure by the use of Postum
Food Coffee, aud warned him to be
careful in having the Postum cooked
long enough when he did try it. Today he is perfectly well and his appetite never better. 1 could give you
the names of a number of others who
have been benefited .by using Postum
Food Coffee. I believe you are a true
friend to suffering humanity��� Thomas

THE NEW CHALLENGER.
Glasgow, Jan. 30.���In the frame
work of the America cup challenger
already set up, the Associated Press
learns, are indications of some strik
ing departures from conventional
yacht designing. The most noticeable
of these is thut the bulk of the yacht
is thrown extarordinarily far forward. Tho timbers at present in posi-:
linn suggest the framework of the old
buff bowed type yacht, more than the
modern racing yacht. This appearance will be modified when the frames
to entry forward the overhangs are
in position. But it is certain the
greatest beam will be forward of tne
mast. Every precaution is still taken
to prevent information about the cup
chullenger getting ubioad.
COLSON-CLARK.
A qniet wedding took place last
evening when Mr. George Colson was
married to Miss Mary Jane Clark at
the residence of tbe bride's mother,
Mrs. John Finnerty, on Silica street.
The* bride was attired in a brown
travelling suit and tbe bridesmaid,
Miss S. Napp, wore a black satin
gown. Mr. and Mrs. Colson will leave
in a few days for Honolulu where Mr.
Colson will engage in business.
DEWET IN  CAPE COLONY.
Queen's Last  Inquiry   Was After Her
Army.
London, Jan. 31.���"It is reported
unofficially," says the Capetown cor
espondent of tbe Daily Mail, "that
General Dewet has entered Cape Colony with a fairly strong force. The
impatience felt in Great Britain at tbe
slow progress of operations is not
warranted, as preparations are being
made for a general movement shortly.
"King Edward haB sent tbe following despatch' to Lord Kitchener:
'One jf the Queen's last inquiries was
after jourselt and the gallant army
under your command.' "
The work up to the present time all
goes to support this theory and further operations will be   watched with
interest.
��� ���   a
Recent ore shipments received at
the Prospectors' Exchange are as follows: Copper ore from the Faller
gronp, White Fish creek, East Kootenay ; gold ore from the Ophir, on Bird
creek; gold ore from tbe Etlente group
Nelson district; gold ore from the
Redaina group, Butterfly Pass, Windermere ; copper ore from Orinoco
group, Nelson district ;"gold ore from
the Alpine group,Slocan City diBtiict;
copper-gold ore from the  Lily   group,
White Grouse basin.
��� ���   ���
The syndicate now developing the
properties of the Dominion Copper
Co., in this camp, are sparing no
time or expense in the operation.
Men have been added to the force
steadily as fast as a place can be
found for them to work, and today
there are over 100 men on the payroll
���more than twice the number employed, when the company ceased
operations in March of last year.
Supt. Parker evidently believes in the
theory that the top expenses are not
more for 100 or 150 men than for 50,
and is aoting accordingly. One immediate result Is that excellent progress Ib being made in opening up tbe
excellent properties of the company.
��� This week the raise from the 150
foot level, in the south drift of the
Brooklyn, to the surface, broke
through, the distance being about 85
feet. This shaft is a short distance
to the rear of the oompany's office,
and will be of no small utility in
working the property, as it will provide fresh air in tbat part of the
mine.
On the Stemwinder the force has
gradually been added to, and that
well known mine is also being thoroughly exploited. This week the old
200-foot tunnel, the portal of which
is just above the old stage road, was
opened up for the first time in many
months and some exploratory work
will he alone there. A draw briage
has been built to carry the waste over
the road way. A raise fiom this tunnel comes up directly under the assay
office. The tunnel was used for a
time as a powder magazine, but a new
log building was erected this week,
far back on the upper part of the hill,
for this purpose.
This week a small force of men has
beon at work on the Idaho claim
