Cowes, Isle of Wight, Jan. 25.-1:30
���._,<���So hampered have.been the arrangements at Osborne that the body
of Queen Victoria still lies in tbe bed
room where she died.    The   elaborate
- decorations Decennary in turning the
dining room in Osborne house into a
ehapel ardenete occupied so much
time tbat although tbe royal household waited hour after hour for the
first private service it was found impossible to bold this yesterday. All
being well, however, the solemn ceremony will be performed this (Friday)
.morning by tbe Bishop of Winchester
in the presence of King Edward, Emperor William and almost every member of the royal family. The coffin
���as brought to Osborne lust evening
and was taken through the .Queen's
private gate which had not been previously used since her death. Emperor Wiliam was the first person to see
It. Tbe coffined body will be transferred this morning to the dining
room. The dais is wreathed with royal standards and on each side are
great candles. Madonnas by famous
painters hang from the draped walls.
In one corner magnificent wreaths
from all parts of the world crush tlielr
blossoms one against tbe other.
Among these   the most  beautiful  are
| from Emperor William   and   Empress
-Augusta Victoria. Around the coffin,
chairs are arranged for the royal
mourners. Lord Pelham Clinton authorizes the statement that there will
be no lying in state. However, there
is  good reason to   believe   that many
, persons will be afforded the privilege
of seeing tbeir dead Queen as she lies
in the gorgeously transformed dining
room where she will remain until
February 1. In the hope that this
may be the case people are already
pouring into Cow9b. If they are disappointed in .this respect they will at
any rate be rewarded by witnessing a
magnificent naval display.
Yesterday King Edward replied to
thousands of messages he bas received.
To those from rulers and great personages ho replied in person; to those
from minor dignitaries be commanded
his equerry to return thanks. A particularly grateful message went to
President McKinley.   The new  queen ���
' moved .ceaselessly around yesterday
seeing that everything should be done1
in good order.
She refused to allow herself to be
called Queen. "Your Majesty" said
one of the entourage, '' Your Boy al
Highness" you mean, was the immediate interruption. It was chiefly due
to Qneen Alexandra's desire to carefully-design the minutest detail ot
the death chapel that the first funeral
service was not held yesterday. Tbe
German-Imperial yacht Hohenzollern
is expeoted to arrive at four this afternoon with Emperor William's
suite. In response to an inquiry by
the correspondent of the Associated
Press Lord Pelham Clinton denies the
report of Emperor William's intention
to return to Germany today.
FUNERAL ON FRIDAY.
London, Jan. 25.��� It is understood
the body of Queen Victoria will arrive
in London on the morning of February Snd and be taken across tbe me-
tropolis.to Paddington. Troops will
line, the streets. The coffin will be
placed on a gun carriage and draped
with flags. On arriving at Padding-
. ton station it will be transferred for
Windsor, finally reaching St. Gorge's
chapel about noon where a magnihV
cent funeral service will take place.
"It la understood tbat the progress
Of the body of Queen Victoria through
London will be an imposing military
pageant, nnd that members of tbe
houses of lords and commons will be
invited to follow the procession. At
the same time there seems to be some
apprehension leat a change of  decia
ion should omit the London portion
of the programme. The Dally Telegraph editorially claims for London a
right to share -in the obsequies , and
declares that nothing but the deceased's own wishes should pi event this.
The funeral has been delayed to
enable all the foreign representatives
to arrive at Windsor in time. It - Is
announced that Grand Duke Serglus
and the Grand Duchess will come from
Russia to be present at tbe  ceremony.
DATE OF CORONATION.
London, Jan. 24.���The fact that the
court goes Into mourning - for a year
and the further faot that the public
is enjoined to go in that deepest
mourning lead to the supposition that
the coronation will not occur until
1002. The instruction that the Duke
of York is to be named In the prayer
book "Duke of Cornwall" ' seems,to
throw light upon the much debated
question ot the heir apparent's title.
It was supposed tbat the title "Prince
uf Wales," which belongs only to a
son boin of tbe King, would be conferred upon the Duke of York by Royal Patent but the' Gazette announcement seems to indicate tbat this will
not be done and that the Duke of
York will henceforth be known as
the Duke of Cornwall. King Edward
VII. has been proclaimed in many
cities and towns of the Unified Kingdom, tbe usual procedure being that
the mayor attended by other mem
bers of tbe corporation has read the
proc'smatlon in the town hall or mar
ket place. In Dubiii uniformed heralds proclaimed Edward VII. at one
of the cast'e gates in tbe presence of
Lord Lieut. Eard Cadogan and the
Irish privy council. An immense assemblage attended the proclamation.
The colonial office announces that
an immense number of telegrams of
condolence, have been received from
colonial . governors and public -bodies
in the colonies. There is* a- continual
stream of condolence messages from
other quarters. Cardinal Vaughn sends
word that he -will bring-from Rome a
speoial message from the Pope to the
new King. Tbe following; princes
from Germany will attend the 'funeral : Prince and Princess Henry .of
Prussia, Prince Arnulf of Bavaria,
the Grand Duke of Hesse, the Prince
of Saxe-Melningen and the,' Prince of
Hopenollein. Prinoe Henri' D'Orleans
is expeoted, and Beat Admiral Cer
vera will accompany Spain's ambassa
dor extraordinary, the Duke of Aman
das.
London, Jan. ?4 ���England contin
ues to give evidence that' she is profoundly touched by the universal sympathy, especially that of America,
expressed on the death of Queen Victoria, and papers like tbe St. James
Gazette, by no means noted for friend
llness toward the United States, have
been among the first to evince grati
tude. Tbe St. James Gazette returns
to the subject again today and says
"In particular we are grateful to
our kindred In America. The American press is in every way a popular
preSB. It knows and responds to popular feeling aud popular will, and it
is unanimous in its tributes of sorrow
and in recognition of the greatness
and goodness of Queen Victoria. Npr
have her publio men been backward.
Mr. Whitelaw Beid, who was in London as tbe special envoy of the United
States at the diamond jubilee, has
pointed out that the Queen had been
referred co for more than a generation
in America aB simply 'The Queen.'
That alone is enough to show how
Americans regarded her. All this is
well aud should touch us profoundly.
But It need not surprise us. Tbe
nearness of blood.And language are
not wisely counted in a political way
but when   simple  feeling - is in ques
tion���simple feeling In a matter over
which no controversy can exist���
then nearness of blood and community
of language will surely tell. Beneath
the differences of government, the
differences of place and many other
differences ot association there Is between the American and ourselves a
great common heritage. Shakespeare
and Milton are part of it, aad Washington is part of it. What Englishman ever thinks of Washington as an
enemy? We think of him simply as
a great man, a noble character of our
raca, and now -Queen Victoria is part
of this heritage of race and language."
. ��� ��
London, Jan. 25.���"There is no
truth in the rumor that a change in
the premiership is contemplated,"
says the Daily MaiL. "Mr. Balfour's
presence at' Osborne boose is due to
the King's kindly desire to spare Lord
Salisbury fatigue aud. trouble. "���'
London, Jan. 24.���The vagaries of
an apparently harmless lunatic occasioned some excitement at Victoria
Btatiou. During the entraining of the
King for Osborne hoi��st*,a weil dressed
Individual bearing a letter addressed
to his majesty was permitted to pass
the barriers. He hurried to an equery
and said he -wished to, present the
letter to the King personally. The
man .was handed over to the police.
The envelope contained only a c telegraph form on which were the words
"I wish to see my beloved Queen."  .**
London, Jan. 23.���The house of lords
and the house of commons continued
the swearing in of tbe members today. The Duke of Marlborough was
among the first peers to take the oath
this morning.
London, Jan. 24.���An extraordinary
Gazette publishes an order in council
that it is expected all persons upon
the present occasion, the denth of
Her late Majesty, of blessed and glorious memory, will put themselves'into
deepest mourning. Another order in
council substitutes "King" for
"Queen" and "Edward" for "Vie-
���toria." It also inserts,, "Our {Gracious
Queen Alexandria, George, Duke of
Cornwall and York, and the. Duchess
of Cornwall and York."
London, Jan. 24.���At the suggestion
of Adellna Patti, memorial services
in honor of Queen Victoria, conducted by Father Bernard Vaugn, took
place yesterday evening at -Craig Y
Nos Castle in Wales. The musioal
portion was arranged by Madame Patti and was extremely beautiful. She

Quebec Jan. 24.���A rdyal salute of
21 guns was fired from the citadel at

today paid a visit lasting a quarter of
an hour to the British ambassador,
Sir Edmund J. Monson, at the' embassy, to express bis condolence on the
death of Queen Victoria. - -..'. '"���.
Parrs, Jan. 24.���At the opening of
the chamber of deputies today the
premier, M. Waldeok Koasean, said:
"In announcing to the chamber the
event which has iust closed a reign ip
whloh is bound up almost a, century's
history, the government wishes to
contribute Its tribute ��� to the homage
and respect which the world renders
to tbe memory of Queen Viotoria and
guaging the sorrow of the English
nation by the affection displayed for
Its sovereign,   the government   bows
respectfully before.-the affliction with
wbich England is stricken." The
premier's remarks were cheered. Tho
president of the chamber said the
chamber joined in the regrets the government had just expressed.
Berlin, Jan. 24.���Tbe Berliner Neu-
ests Nacbbionton quotes tbe following
from Baron Von Dm son: "In 1845
court etiquette had thrust the Prince
Consort somewhat Into tbe background,and a toast-by King Frederick
William IV. first to tbe Queen, and
then to Her Most August Spouse,
deeply effected Queen Victoria, who at
tbe first compliment bowed and at tbe
second bowed very low. Her eyes
sparkled with tears and as the King
sat down, she bent over and kissed
him on the cheek, and then sat down
herself, beaming with joy. "
Madrid, Jan. 24.���Tbe Spanish cabinet has appointed the Duke of Man-
das, the Spanish ambassador at London, and Admiral Cevera, to be the
delegates of Spain at the funeral of
the Queen. Admiral Cevera's reported illness is apparently proved to have
been not serious.

weeks.
-Borne, Jan. 24.���King Victor Em-
anuel has ordered that tbe court go

NELSON'S  OBSERVANCE.
Meeting of Citizens Discuss the Matter in Publio Meeting.
The meeting of representative of local organizations to arrange for. a
suitable observance of the late Queen's
funeral- took place yesterday afternoon at Fraternity hall and was well
attended. Mayor Fletcher presided
and the: subject-was gone into at considerable length. The concensus of
opinion seemed to favor the holding of
the services on. the same day as the
.royal funeral takea^DJace in;-.England,
and final arrangement"s"C��fild nof 'toe
concluded until it was definitely
known when this would be. The suggestion is to have a procession from a
central .point to the recreation
grounds, In which tbe militia, civic
representatives, citizens, fraternities
and labor unions are. to participate.
At the grounds a platform will be
erected, a portion of which is to be
leserved for a choir picked from the
ohoirs of the city churches. Local
clergymen will take part in the brief
service to follow and one of the number will likely deliver a ten-rainute
address. Naturally the matter requires further consideration, and the
meeting adjourned to Sunday next at
3 o'clock in Fraternity hall when a
general committee including a representative of each organization and citizens to bo nominated by the mayor,
will conclude the final   arrangements.

British Bark Castle Rock Becalmed Off
Cape Flattery.,
���Victoria, B. C, Jan. 24.���The British bark, Castle Rock, 21 days from
���Hong j Kangt is becalmed off Cape
Flattery. Reinsurance on her is quoted at 35. She has been chartered to
take a full cargo of British Columbia
ores to England. Af.ter signing manifests of all British Columbia salmon
fleets ihe local shippers have arrived
.at.the conclusion- that the wreckage
found near . Astoria was from either
the Ardnamurchan or Machrihanish,
both owned by Glasgow firms. Salmon with marks similar to those on
the oases.wbich: were found near Astoria were shipped ou these vessels.
R. M. S. Aorangl arrived this evening

SPEAKER,OF QUEBEC HOUSE.
Quebec, Jan. 24.���H.   R.    Kalnville,
of  Montreal, Is to be tbe next  speaker of the Quebeo legislature.
The St. Eugene mine laid off 175
men on Wednesday and Thursday of
this week. This represents practically the entire force employed in taking out ore- and it is not known
whether or not the development crew
will be affected. The management
gives the unsettled smelter conditions
as the reason for the shut clown.
Another chapter in the somewhat
ruffled history of the Fisher Maiden
property in the Silverton camp was
enacted yesterday morning at the
sheriff's office when the ground was
sold to John Elliot, bairister, of Nelson, who is understood to have represented the Bank of Monti eal. The
group is well known throughout the
Slocan and has been advertised at
various times through litigation. The
property, which comprises .two claims
���the Fisher Maiden and the Silver-
ton, or ratber tbe relocations of these
well known claims���went to Mr, Elliot at 815,000. Bids of -810,000 and
812,000 were offered respectively by A.
J. Marks of Nelson, and Benry Roy,
manager of the London Consolidated
Mining Company.
The Fisher Maiden group was staked in 1894 by John I'ophinn and A.
A. Webb and was soon regarded as a
very promising proposition. The owners bonded the "claims- to George
Hughes and Ed Mann who put a crew
at work and took put considerable
ore. .A-shipment of 37 tons was made,
netting 85,500. Over this sum the
dispute arose which made' the group
more or less famous throughout the
country. The parties could not agree
as to who. her the money should be
applied to the bond or go to Hughes
and Mann or be otherwise disposed of
among the parties interested. Eventually the courts decided that the 85,-
500 should be divided equally among
the litigants, but iu the meantime
Frank Watson of Spokane had bonded
the property on abasia of 840,000 making the Fisber Maiden a stock prop-
position. A good deal of work was
done and some ore shipped, but trouble ensued for the company with the
result that the claims, which had run
-out once and been restaked under
new names, were Anally' seized by
the sheriff to satisfy a judgment in favor of the Bank of Montreal,,and disposed of this morning as stated. Tbe
effect of the litigation will he to clear
up tbe title on the ground and enable
the property to start afresh with a
clean sheet. It is understood that
operations are likely to be rcommenc-
ed in the spring.
���   ���   ���
Greenwood, B. C, Jan. 24.���After a
thorough testing of the machinery
at the sampler of the reduction works
of tbe British Columbia Copper company crushing ore has started preparatory to its going to tbe furnace. As
has already been stated, the I blowing
In of the 300 ton furnace will be unavoidably delayed on account of the
lack of coke. Shipments from the
Crow's Nest Coal company should have
started the first of the year, so that
an ample supply would have been on
hand to start operations by the end of
the month, but so far not a pound has
been received.
The mill building is a commodious
frame structure 70 by 05 feet in size
and 48 feet high, covered with u corrugated Iron roof. Its present capacity will allow of sampling 700 tons
each 24 bours. Hy extending the
building south when necessary -two
additional sets of machinery can he
installed, bringing the capacity up to
2,100 tons per day. On the west sido
of the building are located the upper
ore receiving bins. There are six bins,
each having a holding capacity of 500
tons, or a total of 3,000. From these
storage bins the ore is dropped into
cars that will contain 15 cubic feet of
ore, and these are run into the sample
mill building down an incline train-
way.
Following is the process through
which the ore goes, so that by the
time the assayer gets a sample it is
us accurate a sample of the whole
product as mechanical ingenuity has
so far been capable of devising: The
ore first goes Into a No. 5 Gates crusher, which reduces it to about Tour
inches in size. Next it goes through
a Johnson No. 1 sampler. The sampler takes out one fifth of the product
and rejects the balance, which goes
into the sample discard bins below.
The one-fifth sample next goes
through a No. 2 Gates crusher, which
reduces It to one and a half inches.
It then drops into a No. 2 Johnsoon
sampler, which takes a fifth and rejects the remaining four-fifths which
pass on to the binB.
The sample then goes to a bucket
elevator and is carried to the top floor
of the building, passing through a
chute back into a No. 0 Gates crusher,
which grinds it down to half an inch.
It then drops into a iV>. 3 Johnson
sampler, which again retains a one-
fifth and discards the balance. The
one fifth passes to a set of 10 by 20
inch Reliance rolls, crushing to one
eighth of au inch in size, the whole
passing through a second No. 3 Johnson sampler thut cuts out a one-fifth
and sends the same to the bucking
room. It has then reached a fineness
that gives an absolutely truthful sample of the whole original product.
The discarded ore is then taken from
the bins direct to the smelter mixture
bins for treatment. Most of the sampling mill machinery was designed by
Paul Johnson, the manager of the
smelter, and was manufactured by the
E. P. Allis company of Milwaukee.
Mr. Johnson claims for his samplers
a simplicity in their access for clean
ing, an extremely desirable feature
when custom ore is being sampled, as
It allows of no possible chance of
i salting the samples. The machinery
is driven by a 100 horse power Erie
i City engine with 10 to 18 inch cylinder.

Success.
When the central school reopens for
work on Monday, the first duly constituted high school class will be
Btarted. J. R. Clarke, the teacher
detailed by .the department of education to take charge of the class, has

central school in the room set aside
for the inspector's office. The curriculum will include the same first year
studies as bave been followed heretofore.
The first step toward the establishment of a high school building in
Nelson is thus accomplished and it is
to be hoped that tho success of the
venture will be so marked as to warrant the erection of a suitable building at an early date. It is only fair
to state that the efforts of Prinoipal
Soady have contributed in an important degree to the department's action
in establishing a high school teacher
here. For several years past Mr.
Soady has labored zealously with the
preparatory classes and succeeded in
passing the highest percentage of pupils in the province, the object in
view being to bring up the number of
pupil, eligible for high school work
to the standard required by the department. At the end of 1899 a number of pupils had passed the leaving
examinations an** * rVuld have gone into the ordina.-j .. .'.'���������atlons of life, Dad

The Montreal Herald   has   recently
cimmunlcated with tbe mayors of several  Canadian   and   American   cities
asking them for   their   opinions as to
tbe advisability of conducting municipal elections on party rather than on
non-partisan   lines.   Of   thirteen replies received and published last   Saturday, nine were strongly   in favor of
non-partizan   administration  of municipal affairs.    These   were   from the
mayors of Montreal,Moncton, Sydney,
Amherst, Gait,  Cornwall,   Ste.   Hya-
cinthe, Brockville,  Peterborough,   all
of them Canadian cities.   The  mayor
of Mobile, Ala., thinks that  partizan
administration   is all   right,   but  is
free to admit tbat perhaps the elimination ot politics from municipal affairs
might  be better.   The mayor of Lin
coin, Neb., is   a believer in   tbe non-
partizan system, but admits tbat  the
partizan system possesses some advantages.    The     mayor   of    St.    Paul,
Minn., says tbe   partizan system  has
worked well In his city   and  believes
that   "under   existing   conditions   it
would be practically impossible to introduce the purely   non-partizan   system of elections in American cities."
If    the      editor    of     Tbe     Herald
had aaked the editor of The Miner for
his opinion,   tbe   latter   would  bave

William Waldorf Astor gave a ball
at Cliveden a week or two ago, which
was marked by the absence of any
notable society people. Thev had
been invited but didn't come and William grew huffy and ordered the carriages at 1 o'clock. But the guests
wouldn't take tbe hint and continued dancing. Then Willie got
good ana mad and went right off to
bed, therenow. First thing this Astor chap knows there will be no
country open to him but Siberia or
some other equally  undesirable place.
The coasters on Nelson's hills are
still as careless as ever. By the time
tbe hospital is full and half the population is done, up in bandages someone
is going to make the terrible discovery
that coasting is dangerous. Then aB
soon aB the snow is gone tbe sleighs
will be put away.
The government offers twenty-four
cents a day .to those who will join
Baden-Powell'n constabulary. If thuy
would make it an even two-bits the
inducement to Canadians to join
might be stronger.

TEA VS. ALCOHOL1N RUSSIA.
The New York Sun of a recent
date says: Tea wus first imported
into Russia in 1633. Toaay each inhabitant consumes, on the average,
nearly one pound annually. The total consumption is 106,000,000 pounds,
and the total cost about 888,000,000.
Tea and sugar together cost Russia
about $265,000,000 pei year. For
brandy,beer and wine the country expends annually about 8550,000,000, so
that something like a quarter of the
whole revenues of the state are Annually expended on tea, brandy, wine
and beer, with sugar. Exact statistics are not forthcoming, but it appears that the use of tea is it ceasing
rapidly relative to the alcholic beverages���a consummation devoutly to be
wished, it is a remarkable fact that
this change has occurred since the introduction of the machine-made teas
of Ceylon and India.

Tbe game was warmly contested

VENEZUELAN TROUBLES.;
Port of Span,Trinidad, .Ian. 24.���-Advices which have been received here
regarding the mutiny of Venezuelan
troops in the Hoyo Barracks, at Caracas say tbe routineers numbered 300.
The outbreak took place at eight
o'clock in the evening of January 14,
and the colonel, two officers and
four men were killed. Half of the
mutineers were armed near Caracas
and the others surrendered next day.
The situation so far as it affects the
Rermudese Asphalt company grows
more critical every hour. The American colony in Venezuela continues to
protest against the indifference with
which American lives and interests
are regarded.

THE DOCTOR'S WIFE
Wbtohei the t'ffoot of Proper Feeding.
"I bave an excellent opportunity to
know of the effect of food In sickness,
for my husband is a practicing physician and has been recommending
Grape-Nuts food for some time. I
have watched the result, and have
never known a case where it has not
given satisfaction.
"One Instance will perhaps suffice
to Illustrate: A professor In the
high school here was in very poor
health from stomach trouble. He finally got into such a condition that he
oould not eat any food whatever without suffering, and /at so reduced in
strength that he could hardly walk.
He was put on Gape-Nuts food and
gained rapidly and Is now In good
health. His core was effected by the
use of Orape-Nnti food." Mrs.

Your eyes need attention, and it
is a most imperative duty that you
should have them attended to at
once. Do not wait. Do not wear
half fitted glasses. Do not buy
glasses from a passing peddler.
Go where you can receive careful
attention now or.at any time that
there is anything wrong with your '
eyes. '
