The Last Consignment to the
Smelter Broke Previous
Netted Two Thousand Four
Hundred Dollars���Notes
of the Mines.
The Bondholder mine on Springer
creek, which has achieved a wide reputation during the last six months in
the line of rich shipments, has just
broken all previous records and established a new high water mark for
properties in the granite belt of
Slocan. R. C. Campbell-Johnston
ceived yesterday the returns of
last carload of Bondholded
which he delivered at the smelter on
Monday. The shipment contained IIS'J
torn* which averaged 235 ounces of silver and 6}<i per cent, lead, netting
$2,400. This is the richest results by
eleven ounces ever secured from the
property and makes the Bondholder
the banner property in the Slocan
granite belt. It is stated that this is
one of the few Kootenay mines whose
ore carries chloride of silver.
J�� A full carload of ore waB
sent out of the mine but the
packer was apparently too anxious
to get the product to market and
delivered several of the rawhides a
thousand feet below the trail in the
bed of the oreek. One of the strong
points about the Bondholder is tbat
transportation is made easy by the
grades encountered. Report has it
that a man can sit down on a shovel at
the mine and slide to the Basin hotel
more than two miles distant in less
than twenty minutes.
The quantity and quality of ore being shipped from the Springer creek
section at the present time is attracting the attention of mining operators
generally to the district.as is evidenced by the closing of three bouds aggre-
Sating 8125,000 during tbe last 30
ays.f \

Alex. Sproat, who Is ih the city
from New Denver, attending the supreme court sittings, states that work
is progressing satisfactorily at the
Mountain Consolidated property on
Cody creek. A contract for a long
crosscut has been let to D. McDonald
and partner and they are now at
work. The outcrop on the property
and the ore taken from near the surface carried unusually high values
and it is hoped to develop an ore body
of equal quality at the level where the
crosssout will tap the vein.
British,     American     and    Japanese
Alone Act   Humanely.
Vancouver, Feb. 7.���C. F. Acker-
toan Bent by the New York Mutoscope
Co. to China to secure pictures of the
siege was a passenger on the steamship Empress of China. He says the
eondition in China when he left was
appalling. Foreigners bad couiinand-
ered all the provisions in many towns,
and this winter innocent Chinese
would die of starvation by thousands
French and Germans were also dying
fast for lack of proper food. They
had in many eases been saved by
English and American soldiers. All
nations, except the English,Americans
and Japanese were acting like savages. The Gfermans made absolute
slaves of the Chinese cooliss, and he
saw Germans heat Chinese to insensibility with clubs. The British, Americans and Japanese had acted humanely throughout the siege.
Sentences of Three May Be Commuted
to Exile.
Washington, Feb. 7.���The state department has received the following
report, dated Feb. Oth, from United
States Minister Conger at Pekin on
the progress of the negotiations there
between the foreign ministers and the
China government:
"The foreign ministers held a con-
feronce yesterday, the 5th, with the
Chinese plenipotentiaries who presented the difficulties in the way of the
execution of three Chinese notables,
Prince Tuan, Prince Lan and General
Tung Pn Siang. They gave assurances
of the execution ot Chuang and Yu
Hsion, but urged leniency for the others, begging that the court be not
placed in a position too difficult. The
foreign ministers have agreed to the
demand for capital sentences for Tuan
and Lan,   but   with   tbe  expectation
i that It will be commuted to exile.
They demand the death penalty for
the others also mentioned in the docu-
; ment, Yu Hsien, Chin Liu and Hsu
Chang Yu, the last two being now
prisoners  of  the Japanese at   Pekin.
j Posthumous  honors are also demand-
' ed for the four members of the Tsung
Li Yamen executed last summer."

Vancouver, Feb. 7.���D. G. Maedon-
nell says all rumors in connection
with tbe early construction of the V.
V. & E. and tbeir efforts to secure a
terminal Bite are incorrect. D D.
Mann, who is to build the road, has

Negotiations Now Under Way
Which Will Relieve Financial Stringency.
"The shut down at the Molly Gibson
mine was not occasioned through any
failure of the property to come np to
expectations,and negotiations are now
under way which will result in the
resumption of work at once, possibly
today," is the statement issued by
Manager Bruce White who returned
yesterday from a business trip to the
Slocan. According to Mr. White's explanation an unfortunate succession
of circumstnaces has led to the existing condition of affairs and the
mine itself is not in anyway responsible.
In the first place a grave error
was made in sorting ore for shipment
to the smelter last fall. Instead of selecting the.high grade product of the
mine which will net $25 after meeting all charges including that of mining and transportation, 5,000 Backs of
inferior ore, excellent for concentration purposes but not np to the mark
of clean shipping ore, were made up
while the tramway was under way
and were brought down on the completion of the tramway. The returns
from this ore were naturally most disappointing and the standing of the
mine in the eyes of the hank which
bad been furnishing funds to finance
the proposition was seriously affected,
nor was this wholly counterbalanced
by the very much better returns secured from higher grade ore shipped
after the error was discovered. The
management being thus crippled for
ready fuDds was compelled to shut
down the property. The outstanding
obligations total about 835,000 of
which from 88,000 to 87,000 represents
unpaid wages. There is every reason
to believe that the shut down is only
temporary in nature. Mr. White states
that his directors have wired him that
negotiations are under way whereby
the financial stringency will be
straightened out and the situation relieved. He anticipated further particulars today and may receive the
funds to enable bim to resume work
at once.
The Molly Gibson mine as it stands
at the present time represents an investment of more than 8100,000. Manager White states that he has no reason to alter his estimate that the ore
in sight in the property is worth half
a million dollars. He believes, however, that the concentrator, which has
always been a feature of the plans for
working the property, must now
he gone into as tbe next step in the
development of the mine. A large
amount of the ore available is just below the quality which will pay toj
ship over the twelve mile haul to the
lake but when concentiated would be
a very valuable product and place
the Molly Gibson on a basis equal to
other big Slocan producers.
Capetown, Feb. 7.���News four days
old from the Doom river country
shows that the Boeis have a base at
Calvin. From that point they have
sent patrols far and wide. Colonel de
Lisle is moving toward them.. He
lost Lieutenant Clowes and one man
killed in a skirmish with a Boer patrol. The country is wildly mountainous. British horse buyers have
secured 4,000 good horses and 3,000
mules in the colony. It was not suspected that there were so many animals available.
Toronto, Feb. 7.���A petition has
been sent to the Ontario government

Attractive Scenes Yesterday
In  the Old   Dutch
Description of the Ceremony
and Costumes of Those
.   Present.
The Hague, Feb. 7.���Wilhelmina,
the firit ruling Queen of Holland today married Duke Henry of Meckle-
berg-Schwerin who becomes Prince of
the Netherlands by proclamation in
the court gazette this evening. The
marriage was a series of brilliantly
colored pictures, but the severe simplicity of the Dutch form of marriage
which was followed to the letter in the
civil contract before the minister of
justice (Dr. W. A. Cort van der Linden) and in the old fashioned religious service in the Groete Kerk, gave
it a democratic epirit. A happier
surrounding no bride ever had. The
weather was crisp, sunny and inspiring. Multitudes of country people,all
prospeious and happy looking, many
of whom wore the gaia costume which
their ancestors for several eenerations
employed for like holidays, cneered
the big black horses of the state car
riagus with red and white livery postillions and the escort of 12 noblemen
in maroon nnd black who were aligned on horse back six on each side at
attention. The procession was a spectacle that was noteworthy. Fifty
Dutch Hussars rode ahead, then came
a handful of court officials with the
grand master of ceremonies on horseback, then a coach with the Queen
and Duke Henry. The Queen's mother's coach followed and the chief military officials of the place, the governor of the city, two adjutants on
horseback, and lastly, a group of five
mounted artillerymen. Green and
orange decorations with thousands ot
Dutch flags hanging across the streets
gave the route a brilliant appearance
The costuming of the crowds was
equally highly colored.
At U o'clock the marriage party
emerged from the palace, to proceed
to the palace of justice. Queen Wilhelmina passed down the steps on the
arm of the duke with the train of her
whiie wedding dreRs sweeping behind
her, then the Queen's mother in purple, the grand Duchess Maria and half
a dozen ladies of the court followed.
The generals and admirals fairly
gleaming with gold lace and medals
and at the salute on both sides, made
a truly regal picture. The gilded
coach presented by the people of Amsterdam was drawn by eight horses
bedecked witb orange colors. In the
white hall of the palace of justice six
high officials waited as witnesses,
they with the minister of justice, Dr.
van der Linden, were the only persons beside the Queen's mother and
the Grand Duchess Maria and two or
three clerks who saw the signing of
the contract. The religious edifice
in", which the final ceremonies was
held is a great bare structure of Gothic
type with high vaulted arches. The
body is filled with plain box pews,
The scene when the wedding guests
assembled however, was most magnificent.
There was an acre of many colored
uniforms and beautiful gowns with
flashing jewels and the glittering orders of the royal personages and feathers and flowers of the bonnets in the
center. On one Bide of the church
was a space of about 50 feet square.
From the back rose a big white column with an ancient pulpit of carved
oak built upon it ten feet above the
floor. Banks of palms and white Utiles Burrounded the pulpit and were
arranged back of the railing. A
plain red carpet covered the floor. On
the space before the pulpit was a rug
presented hy sixty ladies of Amsterdam, a squure of crimson velvet and
gold embroidery with a border of the
royal arms worked on white drapery,
the dark blue emblazoned orange lion
rampant of the Netherlands surrounding the square. Between the pulpit
and the rug was a short oaken railing
with a small table covered with green
velvet. On the left side chairs reserved for the marriage party faced
the pulpit beyond the rug. Behind
they were some 20 chairs for the ladles of the court, who wore gowns of
emerald and orange, pale blue, white
and pink. It was a handsome array.
The section of the church on the
right of the pulpit was occupied by
the burgomasters and aldermen of
Holland's cities, dressed lu bottle
green with red and gold trimmings.
Another section of the left held the
members of the senate and chamber of
depnties. Facing the left side of the
pulpit, in front of tht* organ loft, Bat
the diplomatic corps, the first two
rows containing the ladies of the di-1
plomatic circle. In the,; third row sat
tbe American minister, Mr. Stanford j
Newell, in plain evening dress. Gen j
cral Porter, the United States Ambus-j
ador to France In the same attire wan
on hiB left with the British minister,
Sir Henry Howard on his right. Dr.
Leyds, repiesentatlve of the Transvaal, had the most prominent seat in
the row, with the Spanish minister,
Seoor Bagado, between bim  and tbe
British minister. The galleries
around tbe three sideh were filled with
guests, most of the men being in
evening dress. The ushers where
court officials in blue uniforms with
gold epaulettes and broad lacings of
gold across their breasts aud down
[heir trousers, wearing swords and
currying chapeaus The seats, excepting a few chairs within the altar
rail, were filled nn hour before
noon. From the tremendous pipe organ, occasional strains of music float
ed out, solemn hymns with nothing
of the traditional joyous wedding
spirits in them.
A roar of cheers announced the arri
vul of the bridal party at half past
twelve. They entered the main door
in the vacant wing of the church,
walking up the steps on a strip of red
velvet under a red canopy bearing
the arms of Holland and proceeded
through a lane of palms to the aisle,
between the burgomasters and civilian
guests.fifty feet long, which was draped with blue displaying the orange
lion. With a heavy diamond tiara
on her head, a rich necklace of diamonds on her neck, with a big diamond brooch on her bosom and white
gloves to the elbows came the royal
bride. In both hands she held a bouquet of lilies of the valley, and
green, red and white satin ribbons.
While' the court chaplain, Dr. von
der Vlien, rose in the regulation black
gown, behind the railing and offered
a long prayer in earnest tones, the
choir sang a Dutch hymn, 'God Ideas
You," "Blessed be Your Earthly and
Eternal Portion," the Queen bowed
her head low and' the chaplain addressed the bridal couple for ten
minutes earnestly and solemnly.
The only sound which marred the
impressive scene was the sharp cracking of photograph cameras in the
press gallery facing the royal sextette,
all of whom noticed the disturbance
and looked anxious. The Duke fidgett
ed nervously and blushed under the
gaze of the congregation, hundreds of
opera glasses being turned in his direction. The choir sang another
hymn during which the congregation
stood, according to Dutch custom, as
those present did during all the
After this the Queen and Duke rose,
and the Queen removed ber right
glove, disclosing an immense jewelled
bracelet on her wrist. The minister
stretched out his arms and the couple
stepped forward a few paces directly
in front of the altar railing.
The Queen had handed her bouquet
to an aged lady in waiting, who laid
it on a chair and :r ranged the folds
of her mistress' gown which trailed
across the velvet rug. Duke Henry
took the bride's right hand in his left
hand, resting on the hilt of his sword
while the deep impressive tones of the
chaplain's voice rang throughout the
chinch as he repeated the marriage
The Queen stood very erect, blushing, while Duke Henry shifted his
feet nervouBly and played with his
aword. The responses from the bride
or groom could not be heard. Finally
the minister held ont a gold plate
from which the Duke took a ring and
placed it on the third finger of the
Queen's right hand. The Queen took
another ring, with a slight fumbling
and slipped it on the same finger of
the Duke's right hand. Then as the
chaplain's arms were uplifted in an at-
itude of blessing the couple sank on
their knees, and there was a great
mstle of relief after the tension of
the long listening throughout the
C. P. R. Have Bought   Two  Steamers
For Northern Route.
Vancouver, B C, Feb. 7.���The Canadian Pacific Hallway have purchased
two large steamers for the Vancouver-

Brown, executive officer of the Canadian Pacific railway, who told bim
that his company, since purchasing
the Canndlun Pacific Navigation company's interests.had bought two large
steamers in tbe East Indies, to put on
tho run between Vancouver and Skagway. That the steamers cost 8500, -
000. They will carry 2550 cabin passengers and HOI) tons of freight and nre
guaranteed to go an average speed of
1(1 knots. Mr. Brown further stated
that the steamers were being overhauled and the passenger accommodation improved as well as the cabin appointments, and that the ships would
be In Vancouver in ample time for
the opening of the Klondike trade in

another line of steamers to attempt to
compete with them for tbe northern
trade as far as British Columbia was
A telegram from the citizens' committee to Mr.Brown today on the subject elicited the reply that the citizens
of Vancouver need feel no uneasiness
regarding the steamer Bcrvloc to Skagway. That the C. P. R. had bought

Before the attorney-general instituted the proceedings ho wired Lord
Kitchener the substance of the letter

New Tug Is the Most Powerful Vessel on the
The C.P.R. officials have decided on
a name for the new tug which has
been building at the shipyards for
several months. She will he called
the Valhalla and will be launched tomorrow afternoon. The craft will be
released on the ways about 2 o'clock
and as the event is of considerable interest a nuinoer of citizens will probably be on hand. The steamer Koka-
nee will run down to the yards on her
arrival in port nnd do picket duty in
the river to prevent the newly launched tug irom going down stream with
[be current into the rapids.
The Valhalla will be by long odds"
the most powerful craft on the inland
waters of the province. Heretofore
the Yra'r has headed the list in point
of towing capacity but the Valhalla
outclasses her by 50 per cent. The
new boat will develop 400 horse
power. The boiler is 12 feet long and
11 feet in diameter while the engine
has cylinders of 14 inches and 30
inches with a 20 inch stroke, built to
work at a pressure of 160 pounds. She
will be lighted by an electric plant
from the Canadian General Electric
compuny of Peterboro. Thirty incan
descent lumps arc distributed over the
boat with a 400 c. p. searchlight provided with strong reflectors which
will cast a powerful beam of light.
Tne bout is painted white above
the water line and red beneath.
She is 100 feet in length und is unusually roomy for a ciuftof her class.
The material used in construction wus
coast fir and cedar, and throughout
the frame is stoutly reinforced. The
interior is finished plainly but neatly
in cedar and if necessary a couple of
dozen passengers could he accommodated. She will carry a master and
mate with live men.
The strong point alicut the Valhalla
is her towing capacity. Whon she
was projected it was intended to build
a tug which would be capable of handling two barges in any weather nnd
the designers believe this has been accomplished in the Valhalla. She draws
eight feet of water which will give
her a degree of stability and seaworthiness in heavy seas not possessed
by any of the other boats now in the
towing service. Tho Valhalla was
built under the direction of .1. Bulger, foreman ship cuipenter, and the
machinery wus installed by I). Step-
lions, port engineer. The craft promises to be a monument to the auillty
of both men.
St. Petersburg, Feb. 7. ���A competent authority hus authorized thi! As
SOolated Press to publish Russia's denial of the story that the czar's government Is demanding thirty million
taels as the price for the restoration
of Miinchuriu to China. This Is altogether false. "Russiu like othei
powers," said tho Associated Press
correspondent's informant, "Is asking
compensation for damuges sustained

the prediction thnt the whole world
will acknowledge when the facts can
be properly divulged that Russia's demands are exceedingly moderate compared with those of the other powers. "
Rome, Feb. 7.���King Victor Emmanuel Is confronted with a tusk of

The majority which defeated the government yesterduy consisted of a
transitory coalition of the members

Rudinl group supporting the govern
ment. The socialists opposed the cabinet because they considered It not
sufficient IV liberal, while the rightists accused it of lacking a coherent
policy and of yielding to the socialists.

tenays generally at the present time.
The reports of the existence of small
pox on the Washington side of the international boundary line ure the direct cause of the interest manifested,
and it is safe to predict that shuuld
the disease succeed in passing the
quarantine again this winter the local
authorities will be in much better
shape to grapple with tbe difficulty
than was the case last year. The establishment and maintenance of the
quarantine at the boundary line hus
passed out of the hands ol the provincial authorities Into those of. the Dominion government, aid a couple of
appointments have been made in connection therewith. Yesterduy a Nelson
man was notified by wire of bis appointment as quarantine officei at Ry-
kerts on the Nelson ,t Bedlington
roud. This will guard the entry
point to the Kootenays from tbe Idaho frontier, while Perry Wright is
now on duty at Wane's in a similar
capacity. As far as can be learned the
Dominion has issued no proclamation
with regard to the conditions affecting persons crossing the boundary into the province. Under the regime of
the provincial health authorities persons entering the province were required to exhibit certificates of vaccination and statement! signed by the
health authorities at the point from
which they hailed to the effect that
they had not been exposed to infection. As a result of these precau'ious
the disease wus kept out of British
Columbia, und li Is fair to assume
thnt similar regulations will be established under the Dominion administration. The fact that the duties of
health officers nt the boundary were
of un international nature led to the
Dominion authorities taking over tho
charge of the quarantine.
in connection with the smallpox
question it may be stated that the
course of the provincial authorities in
regard to last year's outbreak, if this
term is applicable to the ont-case with
which the local officials had to deal,
seems to be anything but businesslike.
The province inclined obligations
in Nelson aggregating 82,000, not a
cent of whicli bas been paid as yet,
although repeated applications have
been made by tile paities to whom
the money is due for services rendered
t.nd supplies furnished. Tbe situation is aggravated by the  lact that at
the last session of the legislature an
appropriation was made covering the
outlay. The attorney-general holds,
however, thut the city wus liable lor
tbe expenditure, hence the delay. As
a result it is probable that should ft
similar Base arise in tin future, the
patient will nut be permitted to enter
the city limits undei uny conditions
other than un express agreement that
the province would meet eveiy cent
of expense incurred. Asa matter of
fact the civic authorities would be
justified In resorting to any measure,
however extreme, to prevent a smallpox case com'ng into the city under
any conditions, anil it would surprise
no one if this couiie was udopted
should the emergency arise.
Tho city is now considering the
matter of erecting an isolation hospital, und application   bus been made to
the government for u site on which to
plucc the building. The corporation
already hns a couple of buildings on
the park reserve which were used lust
year, but their remoteness from witter and sewer sei vice is a great drawback coupled with which is the fact
thnt the buildings could only be used
for one particular class of disease.
When the new building is constructed
It is proposed to arrange tbe interior
so that alter a patient suffering from
any infectious disease is removed the
premises can be thoroughly and quickly disinfected ami used Immediately
for another patient without danger of
infection from the original disease
treated. Nelson is remarkably freo
from Infectious disease but citizens
generally will support the municipal
authorities in preparing for any contingency which may occur.
Dr. Lallan, local medical health olll-
ccr, recommends every citizen, who
bas not already taken   the precaution,
to be vaccinated ut once,   within the
next few days the school children
throughout the city who were not vaccinated last winter, will be required
to undergo the operation. This step
is In the ordinary course of preventative measures. The experience of last
year In dculing with smallpox wns of
consldeiable value to the local authorities, whose course of action in an
outbreak at any future time will be
guided hy tho knowledge gnlncd m
the past.

The authorities are right in taking
prompt measures at the first approach
of danger from such a scourge as
smallpox. The expense is not great,
and, though individuals may suifer
some trifling inconvenience, no safe
guards can be too strong to save the
community from even the chance of
infection. A smallpox scare, not to
mention an epidemic, would do great
injury to all the interests of Nelson
In this connection it may be mentioned that the Provincial government
have treated the city in a most mean
and miserly fashion over the solitary
case treated here during the scare
last year. The patient was a waiter
on one of the steamers, he was not a
resident of Nelson and had contracted
the disease in Seattle. The civic authorities could have, had they wished,
prevented the man from landing, but
out of compassion quarters were found
for him outside the city limits where
be received the best care and attention, finally recovering. The case
was one which properly came under
the Provincial jurisdiction, and was
only taken up by the city because immediate relief was necessary. The
government provided an appropriation
covering the amount, but have since
refused to pay it. This parsimonious
behavior may at any time have serious results for the next unfortunate
man who finds himself in a similar

If Enforced May Save Money For
Gertrnde Thayer, whose acquaintance ive must confess the unhappiness
never.to have made, predicts cheerfully that the twentieth century woman
will "be able to go alone to the theatre and restaurant without the pain
ful necessity of dragging a man along
with her." The New Whatcom Reveille makes about ail that is necessary of comment when it says the man
will be relieved of the necessity of
paying the bills by way of compensating him for the loss of her company.
PosBibly tlertrude had never thought
of this. When a man asks a woman
if he may accompany her to the theatre, the idea that he is being dragged
along as a mere concession to the
proprieties, and is footing the bills
because the downtrodden person whom
he perhaps deemed to be at least sharing in a mutual favor has no right to
foot them, although dying for the
privilege, is something new.���Tacomu
