Nelson,  British Columbia, Thursday,  February 14, 1901.
Eleventh Year
The Stamp Mill Is Not Sue
cessful In Saving the
lined the Waterloo
Camp McKinney there has been
most active demand for the snares.
Upward ol 100,(100 shares and calls
have been purchased by local operators within the past three days. It Is
said that the oro in the winze will
average $40 per ton and that the vein
is the full width of the workings.
Frozen Up Greeks Hamper
Athabasca and Granite
The Chapleau mine on Lemon creek
was shut down yesterday, all the crew
2oming down the hill. The reason
given by the management for this action is that the mill recently installed
on the property has failed to save the
values out of the ore. They are satisfied that the ore is not strictly free
milling and Ih it to operate tbe mine
successfully, a new process of reduction must be determined upon, probably a cyanide plant. In the meantime the company, which operates
with French capital, has stopped work
and no hope Ib held out of an immediate resumption. The news is unwelcome but not altogether unexpected,
rumors regarding the situation having
previously reached the city.
The Chapleau company has something over 8100,000 invested in their
Lemon creek property. Among the
heavy items of expenditure was for
the stamp mill constructed in the
closing months of 1000 and started
about the middle of December. It
was hoped that with the starting of
the mill tbe troubled chapter in the
history of the property would be closed, but disappointment was met
with. The ore did not prove amenable to the milling process and a large
proportion of the values in the ore
was carried away in slimes. Another
factor was that development in the
mine was not sufficiently advanced to
keep the stamps going constantly.
When matters began to go wrong,
Luclen Weyl, who was in chaige of
the property as commercial manager,
cabled the facts to Paris, and M.
Mourgues, the company's engineer,
came out to investigate, lie went
to the mine a couple of weeks since,
and yesterday the instruction to lay
off the erew were read,
Mr. Weyl came down from the mine
yesterday afternoon and was seen here
by a representative of The Miner.
He states that a considerable amount
of good pay ore is in sight In the mine
but that the failure of the mill to
handle the product makes it impossible to continue operations. M. Mourgues remained at the property to make
a thorough examination to form the
basis of a report to the company's
head office. Mr Weyl was unable to
state whether or not the Chapleau
company would lesume work, but
stated that another corporation
would be ready to purchase the Chapleau and proceed with development
The men at the mine were paid
with checks which are to be payable
on the lsth instant.
��� ���   ���
Tbe question of water supply for the
mines in the Nelson district is again
to the front and with a vengeance.
Give Out creek, which supplied the
Athabasca stamp mill, has lived up
to i:s cognomen during tbe last day
or two by giving out to such an extent that it was necessary to shut
down the mill and the compressor.
As a result 40 men came down the
hill Yesterday. It is thought that the
cold spell will not last more than a
few days longer and the creek will
then be running strong again.
The same trouble has been experienced In a less degree at the Gianite
mill. The plant is operated by water
piwer from Eagle and Sandy creeks.
Fjr several days pabt the creeks have
been running light and it became
necessary to shut down ten of the
twenty stamps and reduce the compressor to half speed. Yesterday the
wafer was running more freely as
the result of the slight thaw and it
was possible to operate 15 stamps. In
previous years the winters have invariably been punctuated by thaws which
renewed the sources of the creeks, but
the present frost has been so continuous that water is becoming scarcer
than for years past.

Vancouver   Board   of    Trade   Trying
to Secure Amendments.
Vancouver, Feb, 13.���The board
of trade of Vancouver will inform
the Dominion government and request
the other British Columbia boards to
do the wane, that trade in thiB province is imperilled by the faulty insolvency act of the province. They
will personally urge the government
of British Columbia to afford more
protection to wholesalers and creditors in British Columbia by preparing
a new assignment act, adopting the
Ontario Creditors' Reliet act, and
adopting amendments to the Bills of
Sale act, shortening tbe date under
which such shall be unregistered and
rendering such registration imperative
against traders who may wish to give
Toronto, Feb. 13.���At a meeting of
the executive of the Canadian Manu
facturers' Association yesterday afternoon W. K. McNaught, a welt known
manufacturer, gave notice of a motion urging the Dominion government
to extend the preferential trade tariff
on goods coming from Great Britain
through Canadian ports only. This
motion is due to the action of the
Grand Trunk railway iu diverting traffic from Montreal to Portland, Maine.
If tbe motion were put Into effect by
the government it would discriminate largely against the ports of
Portland, New York and Boston, and
build up the ports of St. John, Halifax, Quebec and Montreal.
Toronto, Feb. 13.���To a deputation
of prohibitionists this morning, Premier Ross refused to grant any further
leigslation in the cause of temperance
at present, and asked the deputation
to let the matter rest for two years.
The deputation withdrew and are
holding a meeting thiB afternoon to
consider the premier's proposition.
Premier Ross informed the deputation of the Dominion Alliance tbat
the government would not undertake
to pass a prohibitory law until the
privy council had passed on the legality of the Manitoba statute. In tbe
meantime the government would en*
force the law.
Kingston, Feb. 13.���Before the
Alumni conference last night J. S.
Willison, editor of the Toronto Globe,
said that government patronage was
no great advantage to a paper. He
said for instance that the Toronto papers with an income of 8325,000 or
$350,000 only secure $4,000 or 85,oo�� lu
patronage, and, in return, he added,
"they pay out 87,000 or $8,000 a year
for political matter that people could
just as well do without."
London, Ont., Feb. 13. ���A trio of
safe crackers visited London thiB
morning. They blew open the Bate
of Charles Depper's general store on
Hamilton road, securing only a few
cents. The explosion blew out the
front window and attracted the police
who gave chase, capturing one man
after a fusllade of shots in which no
one was hurt. The captured man gave
the name of Vincent Latimer, Toronto.
Montreal, Feb. 13.���The liquidators of the defunct Banque Ville Marie
today declared a second dividend of 5
per cent, to the depositors. The
first dividend was 10 per cent, and
the shareholders will probably not
get much more.
Quebec, Feb. 13.���The'Quebeo Central railroad is tied up with bhow fall.

Jeffries. Ruhlln and Trainers
Awaiting Judge Hollls-
er's Decision.
Case Will Probably Be Appealed by the Interested
" Cincinnati, Ohio, Feb. 13.���Present
indications are that the Ruhlln-Jeff-
ries contest will not take place at
Sangerfest Hall next Friday night.
There is now not so much about the
time and place aB about the decision
of Judge Holllser. Sporting editors
from all over the country arrived today and besieged the offices and quarters of Managers Brady, Madden,
Cooke and others, who told them that
they eould not advise them as to anything until tomorrow afternoon. As
soon as Jndge Holllser shall render his
decision the managers will hold a
conference with the directors of the
Saengerfest Athletic Association and
decide upon their plans for the fu
ture. They promise to make a statement for tbe public as soon as possible
In the afternoon.
In the absence of definite informs
tion today, tbe local and visiting
sporting editors, together with tbe
managers and promoters held a sort
of meeting of expostulation during
the afternoon. The newspaper men
held that the pugilistic department in
their line would be dropped from the
papers unless something was done.
It is regarded as possible that the
court may grant what is known as a
modified injunction, which would be
a restraining order against holding
prize fights at the Saengerfest hall,
but not against a boxing contest, such
aB that which is named in the permit
of Mayor Fleishmanu. In this event
radical action ia expected from the
governor as the promoters would then
no doubt postpone the event for a few
days only and continue under the per
mit of the mayor and under the advice
of counsel, holding that they were
proceeding without any intention of
the violation ot the law and that it
would be tbe mayor's part to see that
the event did not violate his permit
or the law.
It is learned on good authority tonight that the decision of Judge Hol-
liser, on which he has been working since Monday,will be very elaborate and unusually lengthy. It is announced that he will deliver it at 11
o'clock tomorrow morning. While
there^aie reports about Governor
Nash having three or four regiments
under marching orders, it is not believed here that any troops will reach
the city this week at least.
The members of tbe Saengerfest
Athletic association as well as the
managers of the contestants insist
that they will not attempt to proceed
if a permanent injunction is issued
against them, and the general opinion
Is that such will be the rendering of
the court. Tbe promoters would then
make no further effort to conduct the
fight until after they had applied to
tbe circuit and supreme courts and if
they are defeated in the eourt of last
resort, they state positively that they
will declare the fight off. Meantime
the prosecuting attorney and sheriff
are vigilant, and the former still has
Jeffries and Ruhlln under bonds, under charge of training for a prize
fight. The cases will be called at
once, if the injunction is not issued.
Chicago, Feb. 13.���The grand jury
ot Kane county has returned indictments against Eddie Croake, lightweight champion of Iowa, young Peter Jackson of Chicago, and Referee
Coster of Chicago. The indictment
charges a violation of the state law
against prize fighting.
Toronto, Feb. 13.���By a standing
vote a joint resolution of condolence
to King Edward over the Queen'b
death and of congratulations to his
Majesty on his accession to the throne,
was passed by the Ontario legislature
yesterday afternoon.
You should'nt send out of town for

Ex-Mayor of Rossland Interviewed on the Railway
Says Self   Interest Should
Compel Us to Support
the G.P.R.
Rossland, Feb. 13.���Yesterday's telegraph dispatch regarding the possible
consequences of James J. Hill getting
the charter he is after, has attracted
a great deal of attention locally and
aroused much discussion. A representative of the Associated Press asked
Mr. A. S. Goodeve, ex-mayor of Rossland, if he had read the article and
what he thought of it.    He replied:
"I read the article this morning,and
if the situation as stated is correct, I
think it Is the duty of every citizen of
British Columbia to oppose to their
utmost the granting of the charter
sought for by Mr. Hill and his associates. Naturally when a new railroad
is mentioned as likely to open up any
district we all look upon it with favor
and do what we can to encourage it,
particularly if as in the present case,
it iB known Is an opposition or competitive line. Instinctively we feel the
truth of the old adage 'competition is
the life of trade,' and at once come to
the conclusion that we must benefit
by such opposition. Ordinarily this
conclusion holds good and we must,
therefore, look for some underlying
but sound reasons why it Is not so in
this case.
"In the fi:-st place, who are Mr.
Hill's associates, and what are the
steps, so far aa known, leading up to
the present ileal'.' Tbe American
Smelting tit Refining company is a cor
poralion whose principals are mem
bers of the great Standard OU trust of
America and in whose control Is tbe
smelting industry of tbe United
States. In dealing with tbe mining
industry they will pursue the same re
lentless course as in dealing with the
oil industry. It is a well known fact
that owing to the manipulation of
the Standard Oil trust many proper
ties were forced to close down in the
United States with the result that in
some cases cities with a population
much larger than our own and with
more substantial building have become
practically deserted and thousands of
individuals and many independent cor
porations ruined, When these same
people, headed by Rockefeller, took
hold of the iron industry, everywhere
conld be seen the trail of the serpent
and the same relentless crushing of
the individual."
"What will be the result in this
"Now that these men have turned
their attention to this province, lt
behooves us to watch with jealous
care every move on the chess board
in order that we may not be entrapped into Belling our birthright to this
alien corporation. What is our present
"It is stated in tbe public press that
Mr. Hill (representing the Ameriean
Smelting and Refining Co. backed by
the Standard Oi I Co.) has purchased
the control of the Crow's Nest Coal
Co. This, Mr. Robert Jaffray, president of tbe coal company, denies.
Mr. Jaffray can well do thiB, as It Ib
understood the purchase has not actually taken place, but is conditional on
Mr. Jaffray being able to secure for
Mr. Hill the eharter applied for.
Should tbey succeed in securing this
charter and at the same time the control ot the Crow's Nest Coal, in,what
position would it place the mining
industries of this province? Absolutely at the mercy of tbe American
Smelting & Refining  Co."
"What treatment can we expect?" J
"Already because of the lead stack
established at Trail, they bave refused
to purchase the silver lead ores of the
Slocan and increased the price of refining lead smelters iu Canada by 84
per ton, so that we would be forced to
sell every pound of silver-lead ore to
tbe American trust and only those
high grade properties tbat could stand
the long haul and combine treatment
rate eould hope to succeed. The result would be equally disastrous to the
gold-copper mines of tbe Rossland and
Boundary districts. Every citizen of
Rossland knows tbat tbe prosperity of
our city and district depends absolutely on being able to secure low smelter
"Now what is to become of our In ���
dependent and competitive local smelters if their only practical source of
fuel supply is in the hands of this
alien trust?
"Already when owned and controlled by Canadians, I am informed that
It is difficult to obtain sufficient coke
from the Crow's Nest Coal Company
to keep our present smelters running,
owing to the ConUaeta made with the
Ameriean smelters; this is borne out
by the fact that the eleotric light
company of Greenwood, and Paul
Johnson of the Greenwood smelter
have been compelled to place contracts
for coal with the Gait Coal company
at Lethbrldge, paying for a longer
haul and consequently a higher
freight rate and using a coal not as
suitable for their purpose."
"Do you not favor competing railways?"
"I am aware that in answer to this
it may be stated that we are alieady
In the hands of the C. P, R. and
while I do not propose for one moment
to defend all their actions nor to contend that they are inspired wholly by
patriotic motives, I desire to point
out that they occupy an entirely different position in regard to the people
of Canada and this province in particular than their opponents. Tbeir success is so intimately bound up with
the development of our country that it
would mean suicide for them to do
anything that would retard that development. This is essentially so in
this province. Tbeir only hope of
obtaining a revenue from their already
large investments here is by giving
such rates and facilities for the carrying aad treatment of our ores as
will conduce to the rapid development
of our mining and smelting industries,
theiefore, as true Canadians, we cannot afford at this time to throw our
influence on the side of those whom
I fear, if successful, would use that
success to our injury."
Seamstresses Turn Out and are Ap
plauiled by Students.
Paris, Feb. 13.���Today was fixed as
the opening day for the start of the
strike of tbe seamstresses in support
of tbe tailors. Only a thousand girls,
however, left work. All the work
people of two big houses and a portion
of those of four others struck. In several cases the employers took the precaution not to allow their employees
to take luncheon outside, and free
meals were provided within. Bands
of tailors and seamstresses paiaded
tbe Rue de la Paix all day long bnt a
strong force of police kept the strikers moving. Tnere was much good
natured chaff and no disorder until
bands of students began to arrive as
the evening advanced. These lustily
cheered the girls and the police then
cordoned the strike.
Capetown, Feb. 13.���Piet Dewet,
who arrived in Capetown yesterday to
engage tbe Afrikanders in the peace
movement, has ai appointment for
Friday or Saturday with Mr. Theron,
president of the Afrikander Bund,
wbo is coming heie for the special
purpose of discussing peace possibilities. Mr. Dewet, on bebalf of the
Boer peace commission, desires the
Afrikander Bund to announce clearly
that the invaders can expect no aid
from the Cape Dutch, and then to send
a deputation to Mr. Steyn and General
Dewet to endeavor to prevail upon
them to surrender.
Piet Dewet says he is confident that
Commandant General Louis Botha
will surrender if Steyn and Dewet
would do so, and the surrender will
be practically witbout conditions.
Rossland, Feb. 13.���The carnival
proper opened with a very successful
masquerade. There w<*re 300 maskers present and 1,200 spectators. It
waB a successful and enjoyable affair.
So far in the curling games Messrs.
Hall of Sandon, and Rae of Nelson
are well up in the finals of each event
so far contested. No final results
were secured In the curling   today.
The Large Attendance Contributed to a Great
Braiding the May Pole���List
of Prize Winners and
Toronto, Feb. 13.���Word has been
received here from General Manager
Moxham of the big steel works at
Syndey that tbe new Iron furnace has
proved to be a complete success. The
sulphur which was the doubtful
point in the enterprise, is under control.
The carnival at the rink last night
under the auspices of the Ladies'
Hospital Aid was a great success.
The attendance was the largest of the
season, the maskers were more numerous than previously and the costumes more artistic, while the music
was excellent. The financial results
were not figured out laBt night but
the hospital cannot fail to be in a
snug sum on the proposition. The
ice was Boft but this did not appear
to dash the spirits of the skaters who
went in for the past time enthusias.
At nine o'clock the Ice was cleared
and the braiding of the Maypoie took
place. The participants were Mes-
damc-i Connon and Akehurst, Misses
Cummings and Kynouk and Messrs.
G. Bell, R. Carley, T. J. McCammon
and A. E. Eskrigge. A tall pole
planted in the center of the rink was
hung with red, white, blue and green
ribbons, eight in all. The skaters, moving in and out, braided the
ribbon in a pattern as low on the pole
as practicable, and then by reversing
tbe movement rinhraided the May pole.
The feature was gracefully performed
and elicited rounds of applause. An
orchestra from the Rocky Mountain
Rangers band was in attendance and
played unusually well.
The competition for prizes was
keen, and the judges had no small
task In making their decisions.
The prizes were awarded as follows:

It Is not surprising that attention
is once again being directed towards
Mr. Joseph Martin. The most notori
ous politician in Canada has been re
markably quiet for some time, but his
recent movements go to show that the
old amibtion for power is again as
serting itself in his bosom and he may
be expected to be heard from to a con ���
siderable extent In the near future.
Of one thing The Miner is quite certain���the people of. British Columbia
have no_use for Mr. Martin as a poli
tician. He had a chance once in this
province; and what did he do? Did
he display any capacity for successful
and wise leadership? Did he initiate
any useful legislation���did he,in abort
meet the expectations of the people in
bis governmental programme? No;
he proved the rankest kind of a failure. He oame to be known as the
Wrecker���the Great Disturber. Where
there was peace and quietness before
all was turmoil with Martin at the
helm. He tinkered unnecessarily
with settled business conditions, forced through the house drastic measures
affecting numerous large industries,
and raised Cain generally. That is
Mr. Martin'B record in British Columbia. Yet now it is seriously hinted at
in some very influential quarters at
the coast that Mr. Martin may receive
recognition and be placed in a position to have a-voice once again in directing the public affairs of the country. This move, if contemplated, had
bitter be abandoned, if -it were wise
t> give heed to the temper of the peo
pie of British Columbia. They want
no more Martiulsm.nor Martinitc leg
islation. They have bad a taste of
that and a further dose would be
nauseous. The present administration
at Victoria may not be an ideal government. It may have made mistakes;
and perhaps the personnel of the government is not all tbat could be desired ; but we think it will be generally admitted that it is honestly endeavoring to administer the affairs of
the country in a satisfactory manner.
If, as the political wheel revolves,
there are to be changes In the present
government they m'-st not include i:
place for Mr. Joseph Martin. Almost
anything would he better than that.
Mr. Martin is a very able man���everyone will admit that; but he is able
only in the senee that he ia a pugnacious critic. He bas been properly
termed a political pugilist���a man always at war. Such a man is dangerous in any public capacity. Mr. Martin has proved himself a dangerous
man ; and the people have no further
use fur him.
The foregoing remarks regarding
Mr. Martin may be more timely tliaii
most people imagine. Mr. Martin
has been doing some tall intriguing
lately and unless the people arc watchful it ia within the realm of probability that he may Bo direct events as
to once again And himself in a seat
on the treasury benches at Victoria.
Once there, it can easily be imagined
what would happen. British Columbia would onee again feel the Martin
whip and Capital would take fright
and scamper away until the row was
over. Do the people of this province
want another experience of that kind?
The Miner thinks it may answer for
them and reply in the negative.
It was a strange -coincidence which
placed a note found in a turkey���
which came among a shipment of two
thousand from Ontario���in tbe hands
of a yonng lady in Nelson who was
horn near the place where the gobbler "got it in the) neck." The note
was signed by a Miss Alma Palmer;
and the unfortuate thing about tbe
matter is that the greasy epistle did
not find its way into the hands of
Borne young trentleman pining for a
help-mate. But perhaps some enterprising Nelsonite will take the hint
and talk turkey to Mise Alrna.
Tbe Chinese Emperor has asked
Ojrtain of his subjects to commit suicide. The Miner will go further than
that and extend a general invitation
to all the Chinese tn tbis province to
fo Bad do likewise,
And now It is reported that King
Edward VII. is going to Germany ti
visit Emperor William. Verily, thlt-
friendship between the two inonacrlis
is growing into a love match.
If, as asserted, there is spine question about the public wharf being B��fe
for traffic, the matter ought to be
taken up ami attended to. Neglect
might prove a very costly piece of
folly. __
Tho Toronto Globe is displaying indecent verbosity as the paid pleader of
the Crow's Nest Pass Coal company,
Its long arguments would be more
effective if tbey were characterized by
The C, V, R. is to be commended for
Its enterprise in arranging a. double
train service for the convenience of
its patrons, from Robson, when ocpa-
sion necessitates thjs through the boat
from Arrowhead being late.
Nelson is steadily establishing Its
prestige as the gieat shipping point of
the Interior. As the country develops
It will thrive and prosper and become
a very large city. That seems about
as safe a prediction as one  can make.
The proposal tn raise the saUry of
the mayor of Nelson to $3,OOo'is naturally exciting some local interest. The
mayor of any city should be paid a
salary commensurate with his duties
and responsibilities���what the amount
should bo is of course regulated by tbe
financial condition of the city and the
feeling of the taxpayers.
As indicative of the great value and
growth of the pulp wood industry ip
Ontario it is interesting to note that
the revenue derived by the province
during the past year was 913,POO,
compared with $4,828 during 1890. We
hope the time is not far distant when
a similar industry will be found thriving in this province, whicli is peculiarly adapted to support it,
The closing down of the Chapleau
mine is to be regretted, but the faet
that this step was necessary must not
bo taken as indicating that the property is not a valuaole one and will
not uUiliiatjly prove a dividend pay
er. It is only another instance of the
costly mistakes which are made by an
improper method of ore treatment being adopted because of inadequate preliminary investigation.
Miner readers who anticipate that
this paper will some day inaugurate
a campaign of personal abuse against
individuals with whom it might not
unreasonably be expected to have a
difference of opinion, will be disap
pointed. This paper will devote its
energies to an endeavor to give the
people what they want���the news,
with legitimate comment thereon,
and leave the pastime of throwing
mud to some else.

And Felt They Snveil the Honor ot
the American Navy,
Every grnduiitlng class nt Annnpnlls
leaves behind it thu fame ot certain heroes in the Hue ot physical pruwesa or
uiental endeavor. One uf those bei-oei
was George Dewey, a line, iniiiily, at hint
Ic youth, tho pride ot the boxing und
fencing musters and the terror of ull bullies.
In Dewey's class wus a youth of an excellent bent for applied mat hematics, but
so tender of physique thnt he often suffered from the roughhorseplay of Ills elders. Dewey took tho boy under bis protection, and the two became fust fi-lends.
They swung their liummocUs in tbe muni*
watch on their graduating cruise und
when th* ship touched ot Liverpool obtained permission to run up to London
on a day's leave. By rigid economy the
two had scinpcd together a little more
than t'i apiece, und they lunded in the
English capital arrayed in spiek and spun
new uniforms, with the nil' of linuiii'hil
magnates. A round of Bightseelng hnd
reduced their combined capital to two
sovereigns uud their return tickets when
their boyish appetites announced the
hour of noon.
With the cautious economy of his ancestors the Scotsman suggested a chop-
house, but nothing but the best would
suit Dewey, and he accordingly steered
his chum into the finest hotel he could
The two seated themselves nt one of
the tables nnd scanned the menu with a
���magnificent air. The very first Item thnt
caught their eyes wns "strawberries and
cream," and this, with its reminiscence
of home, they proceeded to older.
Now, tbe time was winter, and strawberries from tbe hothouse are expensive
In London, so It was small wonder thnt
the other guests who hnd learned the order looked Inquiringly al these specimens
of tbe jeunesse dores of the American
navy. An Oxford lad who sat next tbem
seemed particularly impressed nnd turned his large eyes upon them In awe. The
strawberries were good, and all went well
nntll the obsequious waiter returned witb
a bill for ��1. The Scotsman nearly collapsed, but Dewey noticed the eyes of the
Oxonian upon him, and, turning superbly to the wniter, ordered two more plates.
The middies left with empty pockets,
but haughtily conscious thnt they hnd
saved the honor of the American unvy.���

ValnHble Ground Won by a Rose.
The convent of Snn Francisco de As-
���Is, Lima, was founded ou tbo same day
as tho capital 0[ I''*ru, in 1535. The
church was built in the year 1553. This
church has 20 altars and is the most
magnificent in Limn, both interunlly nnd
externally. The altars are extremely
rch and of modern construction.
Connected with this church there is a
very curious historical episode. The first
site assigned to tbe father of the order,
Fernando de la Cruz, for the Franciscan
convent, was outside the city and very
small. The friars applied to the viceroy,
the Marquis de Canete, for a more suitable place, and he offered to give them
whatever ground tbey could Inclose in
one night. Acting on this promise, the
monks collected the necessary materials,
and in the short time allowed they raised
four fences, one of wbich completely
stopped up a street, now called Oallo
Aparicio, and thus inclosed a whole
"mauznnn," or plot of ground 10U yards
square, containing an orchard and a large
pond. The municipality of Limn protested against this act as an encroach-
ment on its rights and demanded thnt the
street should be restored, but tbo viceroy
had the ground in question vnluen and
paid for the same out of his own purse.

A writer In The Ladies' Home Journal
tells an Interesting story of Sargent, the
artist, In connection with his great mural
painting in the Boston Public library.
Sargent had given much time aud study
to his theme, but went to some friends
one day iu a mood of artistic despair, insisting that he had conceived an iden beyond bis powers of execution. He ex-
plaiaed, then gloomily insisted, that he
was going home to destroy the entire
batch of drawings. Tbey pleaded with
him not to do so before they had seen
tbem. He consented, and, spurred on by
their encouragement, finished bis noble
design. But for the Insistence of Sargent's friends we would have lost one of
our most treasured works of art.

do not mean the boy Pinto Badsha,

worst, tempered, little rascal In the village���a nuisance and a terror to all tha
other.children?" .
"Excellent sir," protested the.gbatuch,

therefore unable to lie, I solemnly de-
ciare, tbat all such reports are evil gossip,
I set about by those persons who do the
youth great Injustice oo account of tbeii

sir, that such calumniators of tbe just
should go unpunished!" And the gbatuch
turned up tbo whites of his eyes in pious
"What examinations, them, bat tb*
youth passed?" asked, the zemindar.  .,
"As to examinations, sir," replies) the
ghatuch In n tone and manner as If that
were a mnttcr of little Importance,, "so

Is no doubt that he would carry all before him were be to compete with other

"Tbat is, indeed, a different report of
thu youth to that which I hnyu heard,"
replied tho latter digultary,, "for. It wus
said that, he was an Idle, good far nothi
lug boy, who spent the greater, part of
bis time lu hunting and tormenting his
younger brothers and sisters. I confess
that I do not like tbo proposal."
"Noble sir," continued the ghatuch,
assuming n more confidential manner,
"when 1 add to the assurance, 1 wbo am
descended from Brahma, that those reports are all false, tho additional promise of a handsome present for yourself;
perhaps your high excellency will be
pleased to consider tbe mutter Id a mora
favorable light."
To the cautiously observant ghatuch
the effect of the Inferred money peraua-,
simi upon tho zemindar was soon apparent, for after protesting that the matter of a present bore ne weight with him
whatever ho at last agreed that if the
question of caste were satisfactorily settled, that no ill omens were manifested
and that tho present took tbe form of a
good sum of rupees he might be disposed
to think well of tbe proposition.
Overjoyed at tho success of hit efforts, the ghatuch, with a succession of
low salaams, then took bis departure,
feeling assured that the money lender's
big fee wus already due in his hands.
Now, a few days afterward, all un-
conscious of the dismal fate In store for
her, little Choti Tagore, flying a kit*
from the roof of the zemindar's bouse,
attracted tbe attention of a group of
boys out iu the road, among whom were
the sons of Soman Uopalabrishna and
Badsha Das respectively. "You see her,"
Biiid young Pinto Badsha, pointing out
Choti to his playfellows. "She Is to be
my wife, and 1 Intend to beat her well,
because 1 think that Is the right way to
treat girls."
"How would you like to be treated In
tbat way yourself?" at once asked young
Ilnri Uopalabrishna, who had a long
standing feud with the other boy. "If
she were my sister, I would beat you
well In return." "You would? I should
much like to see you do it," retorted the
other, with a laugh that merged Into a
Among boys everywhere, such a position being reached, a personal encounter,
becomes the sole court of. appeal,, and,
soon, amid a cloud of dust, the two were
thrashing away in a fashion that meant
some bodily barm. Down went Pinto,
bringing Ilnri at the. same, time to the,
ground, where they rolled over and over
until Ilnri, securiug his adversaryj.com-.
polled him witb loud lamentatious to, sua

"What is all this.?" called out. toe voice
of the zemindar, appearing from his compound and. surveying tha. struggling.
youths. Harl rose instantly and stood,
panting, for breath, witb. flashing oyes
and dilated nostrils, as handsome a
youth as one would be likely to se�� in
"Why have you been beating your

"He said he intended to beat the-little
girl on,the roof when she came to be his
wife,.so I beat.hlm to.sep. hoyv he,lil(ej|,.

"Oh, indeed!" replied the zemindar,
"And who mayvyau be^pray?"
"I am Harl, the sou af Soman Oopala-

"No, sir; I am Harl Gopalabriahna,"
reiterated the boy, "and that Is Plhto

L Nelson Daily Miner, Thursday, February 14, 1901
Funeral   ServiceB    Over   Mr.    C.   I).
Mackenzie Was Largely Attended.
The remains of the late C. 1). Mackenzie were sent east lust night for
interment at Cincinnati. Ohio. The
last tribute of respect from the deceased gentleman's friends in the city and
4|strlot was of an impressive nature,
calculated to emphasize tho measure
of esteem in which the late manager
of the Arlington mine wus held. The
Wipers from the property arrived at 2
o'clock In the morning. At 4 o'clock
p. m. tho cortege was formed at the
undertaking parlors on Vernon Street
and proceeded to St. Paul's Presbyter-
Un church. The Odd Fellows, forty
Strong, led the way. Following was
the hearse, aeooinpanied by the pall
bearers, Messrs. S. B Fowler, consulting engineer lor the London St 11.
C. Gold Fields, Bruce Whito, manager
of the Molly Gibson mine; George
Kydd, manager of the Royal llanlc;
Captain Duncan, manager of the Duncan Mines Ltd, ; Hamilton Hyers,president of the 11. Byers Hardware company, and O. O. Buchanan, president
Of the lluuhauun Lumber company of
Kaslo. Behind the hearse were the
mourners, intimate friends nnd business associates of the deceased. Then
came the Miners' union under Secretary James Wllks. The crew of the
Arlington were it this section of the
Cortege whicli aggregated 70 men,
A contingent of a score or more prominent mining and business men accompanied the procession to the church.
At St. Paul's Hev. H. Young of
Ymir, who officiates at the services
held at the Arlington, and llev. William Munroe, pastor of Emmanuel
Congregation church this city, received the body which was placed within
tbe altar rail. The choir was in attendance and sang nn appropriate
Selection as the procession entered.
The service was brief. Rev. Mr.
Young made a short address in the
course of whioh a manly reference
wbb made to the late Mr. Mackenzie's
position in the community.
After the service the procession was
formed and marched to the city
Wharf where the casket was placed
aboard the steamer international.
:% It Is stated that the great English
i(rro of Vlckers, Sons und Maxim have
Instituted negotiations for the purchase of the Midvule Steel Works
and the Cramp Shipbuilding Yards of
Some of the great English, shipbuilding flrras should consider the advantages offered by the Maritime provinces of Canada for the establishment
of shipbuilding yards. The Montreal
Star very truly points out thut there
might be more profit in establishing
new shipyards in Canada than in
bpying old ones in the United States.
It is true that Canadian shipyards
could not expect to get contracts for
warships from the United .States government, but Great Britain will probably (five out as many contracts for
ngn- warships as the United States,
and a very extensive business might
be done in supplying foreign powers
| with warships. Steel can be made
more cheaply at Sydney, C. B., than
at any pther point in the world on
tide water, and shipplatcs could be
cheaply transported from Sydney to
St. John or Halifax, which have fine
[harbors open throughout the year.
[ The magnificent harbor of Sydney
itself is open nearly the whole of the
year, and shipyards could be located
close to the steel works.
The remarkable geographical position of Sydney harbor, between 800
land 900 miles nearer to Europe than
(Philadelphia, and. at the same time
[nearer to the chief ports of South
| America, Africa, and Asia than any
port on the Atlantic coast of the Unit-
led States, would make it a most fa-
tvorable location   for   shipyards.
If the report that the British war
office has decided to fortify Sydney
harbor and make it a great coaling
itation be true it would Increase tbe
Wantages whicli tbat harbor offers

"My first suspicion that coffee was
slowly killing me came from reading
in the newspaper the experience of a
person suffering from the poison contained in coffee, and how he had been
relieved by leaving off coffee and taking Postum Food Coffee.
"I had for a long time, suffered
from palpitation of the heart, indigestion, biliousness, and intense headaches and neuralgia.
"If I did leave off coffee for one
hour beyond the usual time in the
morning, I had the most excruciating
headache for the rest of the day, but
I made the change from coffee to Pos
turn without the slightest inconvenience, by first having the Postum prepared with a little coffee mixed in it,
then the next day a little less and the
next day a little less, until in less
than a month I was having the Postum Simon Pure, and the cook got so
she could make it so strong and delicious that I enjoyed my Postum better than I had ever enjoyed the old
fashioned coffee that had been undermining my health and rendering life
a burden.
"One by one, and day by day, all
the old symptoms disappeared. A
feeling of tranquil strength and even
temper replaced the tormer unnatural
conditions. Sleep was complete and
"The change was so complete, and
radical tbat 1 could not doubt the
ca-ise, which lay simply in the withdrawal of the poison, and the addition
to my diet of a nourishing, health-
giving, liquid food, Postum.
"I can give the names of many per-
sons who have been benclitted by the
change from coffee to Postum, and am
never tired of making converts. How
many times we hear people complain
of this and that obscure symptom of
d sease, and wonder what can be the
matter with them. In nine cases out
of ten it is due to nothing in the
-world but coffee poisoning. I am
sure if all those who have ails of one
kind or another, serious or trilling,
would try the experiment that I did,
there would result an enormous aggregate of improvement in health, and
coffee would take its proper place
among the other poisons."
It Is well for people to know that
cooks who first undertake to make
Postum boil it too little and therefore
do not extract tbe flavor and food
value. It is delicious it prepared according to directions, (and that is
