returned from a trip ever the line of
the Crow's Nest Railway repents Unit
the freshets are doing considerable
damage along the line. It requires
large nanus of men in muiiy plucos at,
present, in order to keep the tracks iu
passable condition, while at the loop,
on Michel Crock some, twenty m Irs
east of Ferule, a succession of slides
have buried the line under hundreds of
tons of clay, making it necessary for
passengers to he transferred around it
from 0110 train to another.
The towns along the line tiro in vniy-
ing conditions as regards activity. At
Kuskouook considerable activity is
manifested at present, and several of
the stores and hotels which were deserted after the completion of the line
to tho lake have been again taken up,
and also a few now ones arc m course
of erection.
Sirdar, the next town is also fairly
active, the grade on the Nelson &
Bedlingtou railway being nearly completed to there, largo gangs of meu aiv
at work in the vicinity.
Several good claims havn been din-
covered in the vieiuitv of Creston. and
building iR also going.. on. Prom
Kootenay Landing to Kitchener the
grade is in fairly good condition,as the
road bed runs mainly over a rooky and
gravelly bed. East of Kitchener, however, a lot of clayey and marshy land
is encountered, where it will take considerable tune for tlio natural obstacles
to he entirely overcome. The nrinl.er
of men employed is very huge, every
mile or two gnnus being encountered
working on all threatening places.
Near Goatfall, a hill which to the
inexperienced eye looks very harmless
is giving no end of trouble. Although
tho slope is very slight, thero are a
number of springs cause! by the melting of the snow on tho adjoining
mountains, limning in channels
underground and being at present
greatly swollen, force their way upward and have converted the bill into
a veritable lako of thick mud, which
flowing down oarries large masses of
solid earth along with it. If the hill
was at all steep a state of things would
be caused similar to those existing at
the loop. As it is constant vigilance
and hard work is keeping the track
clear, although at considerable cost to
tho company, judging by tho number
of men employed.
Beyond the hill the land being very
soft will also need a lot, of work be-
for a permanently satisfactory roil
hod will be obtained. Ballasting anil
rilling gangs are keeping it as well as
can be oxnected during the present
freshets. The scenevv along the line
at many points is beautiful beyond description, countless small Rtroams,
swollen to immense proportions by the
warm weather dashing down lie sides
of the moutnins iu the wildest kind of
cataracts and rapids aro to be soon all
along.
Game is very plentiful especially in
the country between Kitchener and
Moyio. A few days ago a family of
Indians encamped nonr Yahk, succeeded in shooting ten deer and one of tho
largest black bents that have been taken iu that country. Some of the men
at work on the road have also shotBev-
oral door.
At Movie, although the past winter
and spring has been a hard one, things
are quite promising. The mines there
are undoubtedly some of the best yet
discovered in East Kootenay. The St.
Eugoue at present is employing HO men
but later the force will he increased
to the neighborhood of 70. On the
Lake Shoro a new shaft was started
the dny the Miner reporter was there,
and the first surface blast brought up
galena which it would be hard to heat.
The passengers trains all stop at
Moyio and tho townsito agents stated
that all freights had been doing likewise. However, a freight train caino

and signalling it roared past, --* "

30'miles. over ono of the roughest wagon roads in British Columbia.
At   Cranbrook,     people    are   hopeful   of   the   N.irth    Star    branch   of
the  C. P. R.   being  started    shortlv, I
and   the presence  of a party of 0.   P. |

merchants there have lately been erecting oomfortable homes and bringing
their families up fr >ni the east,
At fort Steele, the recent discoveries
on the Big Chief hns hud n very favorable effect on real estate values and
also on the prospects of the town.
The iinpres Ion that n railway branch
will be built in there either from the
0. J'. It. or Great Northern very soon
prevails among all classes The ranches
in the neighborhood of this pretty lit
tie town me well advanced, and much
new land has been taken up this
spring, the owners of which are at
present busily engaged   in   putting it
under cultivation.
From Cranbrook east to Frrnio there
tea trn r,nS; several recommends
their own. The steamers on the Koote-,
nay which run from Fort Steele and
Wnrdner, at Ihe crossing of the Kootenay by the 0. P. K., to .lenings, Montana, where connection is made with
tho Great Northern have not yet start
ed running, owing to the backward
spring keeping the water in (ho river
loo low. but the present warm weather is bringing it up rapidly, and thn
first steamer of Iho season will likely
lo up about Juue 1,being over a month
later than last year.
The telegraph line between Knlispell
and Fort S eel. has bpen extended from
Port [Steele to Cranbrook where it connects with the 0. P. R. system. At
St. May's I!. C. Mission between
Port Steele end Cranbrook, He Indians me well lihead with Iheir spring
operations. An order recently arrived
from Ottawa ordering further vaccina
tion. and Rev. Father Onoola, the
priest in charge of the mission, and H.
T. Galbraith the Indian neeut of the
Kootenay are now on a trip among
the different tribes vaccinating
them.
The fishing in the Elk, near Elko is
very good and an ox.mrsi.m from Pernio to Elko was planned for the 24th
of May, but owing to one of the two
passenger trains in service on that division being stalled at the other side of
the loop, and the other one being delayed by a washout at Hosmer for a day
the exoursion fell through.
Pernio is naturally tho busiest town
I etwecn Kootenay Lake and the prairie, on the Crow's Nest Linn today.
Such a large amount of men are employed at good wages on the mines
nnd coke oven that it keeps trade in n
-toady eonfitiou right along. Then
is a good deal of snow around the
mines yet, and it is down very low
'ii the mountains surrounding the
lown, sn that the variations of climate
^re rather trying. Directly the sun
sinks the sometimes oppressive
warmth, is changed in a few minutes
tn  a very marked degree of chilliness
There are quite a few cases of mountain fever in the town, but outside of
that, it seems fairly healthy. The
citizens of Pernio are at present much
exercised over tho slowness of the Provincial Government regarding the
school question. There are over 200
children in town while there is no
school accommodations whatever. A
notice which has been placed in tin
pnstofflce and other places there is also causing a good deal of comment.
It vends as follows:
"It is forbidden to mako any erection
or to earn' on any trade upon crown
lands without obtaining license therefore from the undersigned,
All tho land compassed in tho old
and the new towns of Pernio is Crown
Land.
(Signed) J. P. Armstrong,
Government Agent.
East of Pernio is where the road is
causing most anxiety to tho 0. P. Ii.
The work along most of the line there
bus been well dene, but so manv
swamps, exist, and also steep earth
slopes, traverse! by swollen torrents
that constant vigilance is needed. At
the loop it, is as yet imposible to divert;
or stop the mud which comes down in
immense quantities, It has oven been
impossible to get at tho bodies of the
two unfortunates buried in the slido or
last week.
At all the places liable to washout or
slido signalmen have been placed,
which has kept the trains running ns
regularly as is possible.
The sentiment at tho towns along
thn line seemed to be strongly ngninst
the eight hour law, nearly all spoken
to on tho subjeot expressing the hope
that tho miners would bo willing to
compromise the matter. All appeared
to realize what a heavy eetbnok to tho
oountry it would he if there was n
shut down of the principal mines in
West Kootenay, which would affect
East Kootenay almost as much, in discouraging the incoming of capital As
ono prominent merchant in Pernio
Raid: "Tne general Eastern public is
just beginning to know what a grand
country for the investor in mining the
Kooteiiays are What a pity it will be
if there arc troubles hern in the mines
which will immensely lower the value of much mining pronerty, and
thereby all property, and take years to
dissipate the impresssioli of insecurity
that it would create. Suielv the miners of West Kootenay will seo how
their own prosperity is built in with
the well doing of tho mines and also
how the porposed change will make
the piofitable working of many good |CUBANS
mines a commercial impossibility."
nim
Rossland,May 26.��� In the War Eagle
disaster inquest the jury returned a
verdict ut 9:80 last evening as follows:
First���We lind that thn deoeasud
came to their death by the skip falling
to the boltoui of the shaft which was
caused by the slipping of a bolt out of
its position, and that the machinery
in question was defective inasmuch
as safety pins should bnvo been inserted in all the bolts Iu protect the nubs
of  said bolts.
Second���Iu view of thn fact that certain defects took place previous to tho
present accident, we are of tho opinion that, men should not havo been permitted to ride on the skips until such
time as the machinery was perfected
beyond a reasonable doubt.
Third���Wo are also of the opinion
that a daily report should ho made by
the engineer in chief as to the working
order of the machinery and that this
rule should he strictly enforced.
Pounil���Wo would also strongly recommend that a certified mechanical
mil electrical engineer should bo appointed to exam,no all mining machinery iu operation.
Fifth���-We would further recommend
that the Government should appoint
several mining inspectors, as iu our
opinion the duties imposed upon the
present one are greater than he can
perform with satisfaction and it is further recommended that ono resident inspector should he appointed,iu least for
tins important   mining section.
Sixth���That the practice of employing uncertified engineers for technical
positions of responsibility in the
mines of this Province, which has
heretofore prevailed, is to be condemned and that in future the strictest rules should be enforced and that
if the present mining act be unsufli-
cient for tnis purpose it be amended
at tho next meeting of tho legislature.
BIG PIKE IN   NEW   BRUNSWICK.
A Thousand   People   Aro Burued  Out
iu St. John.
St. Johns, N. B., May 28.���A fiio
that broke out in a building adjoining
the general warehouse of P. Nase &
Sons, Main stroet,north end,this afternoon did enormous damage, A leading underwriter estimates Ihe loss at
1600,000 and Ihe insuianco about .*;i()0,-
000. For several hours the fire's progress was unchecked. Insufficient
water supply, a long term of dry
weather and a brisk gale contributed
io cause n conflagration which for a
time threatened nnnibiliation to the
wooden district whom   it   originated.
Tho flames spread to tho wharves
along the St. Johns river where much
damage was done, but tho general
course of the conflagration was away
from tho river. At B o'clock the destruction of sever.1 buildings on
Main street by the use of dynamite
stayed the progress of the (lames along
tho line of the street railway and tho
(Ireineu were able to direct their
efforts more particularly to the district
north of Mam street and including
the blocks of dwellings bounded by
Victoria, Metcalf, Bridge, Holly, Cu-
nard and Albert streets. The spread of
the flumes wns soon stopped and nil
the evening the ruins gradually burned out.
Thn area burned over comprises 15
blocks or portions of blocks, and the
buildings destroyed, 160, Tho district ravaged by the (ire was composed
of tenement houses and probably lot)
persons are homeless, a majority of
them sailoring people.
Two deaths aro to he set down to the
fire. Miss Ouuard, an aged lady residing on Holly street, was burned iu her
houses, and Mrs. Arnold Moweiy, who
resided a short distance from tho scene
died from the schock.

English  Papers Express Their Views of
What Should Be Done hy Both
Powers Concerned- ���
Washington, May 26.���The depart
mont of state has referred to the treasury department tlio arrangement of n
plan to protect the interests of ihe
United States, nnd u deoifiou from
Secretary   Gage is expeote I very soon.
The treasury department hns now
two courses open, both being rclil-
atory. The first is the prupnratiou of
an amendment to tho tariff net, largely
increasing the duties on the lumber
and forest products imported iiWo the
United states from Canada. Thero is
possibly another course. A seotion of
the Dingley act authorizes the United
States government in oasos where countries have an import aud export duty,
to add the equivalent to such export
dntv to tht import on such goods com-
iug to tho United Stales,
Tho Canadian Government is not
imposing iu so many words au export
duty on logs but it has prohibitedjtheir
exportation. The question before Secretary Gnge is whether this prohihi-
ticn may not ho regarded as iu principle the same thing as an excessive,
and therefore, prohibitive export tax.
If this view is sound, the treasury has
already at baud thn measure ot retaliation it seeks in the shape of an order
prohibiting the importation of Canadian logs into the United States which
would bear verv heavily upon other
Provinces iu Canada outsido of Ontario.
Loudon, Mny 27.���The morning
papers discuss tho feature of tho Anglo-
American commission with an apparent desire to pacify both Canada and
the United States.
The Daily Ohroniole Bays: "The
whole boundary dispute is small but
there is much reason to fear that the
lumber quarrel is the cause of the friction. Both sidos appiar to be thinking of perpetual retaliation and reprisals. Such a state of things is full of
evil. The committee afford nn onpor-
tunity to give aud take. It is urgent
that a settlement should be accepted.
Should this fail and should thn Nicaragua arrangement fail also, a very unpleasant relation might ensue. A
return to any nufrienuly temper between the two branches of the Anglo-
Saxon race would be u disaster to every
one aud above all to Canada   herself."
The Daily Mail says: "It is obviously unfair for the United States to
expeot the British empire to do nil the
giving and America tn do all the tak
ing. That is a form of diplomacy to
which wo are painfully accustomed
in our dealing with certain powers.
What America Books is an annulment
of the Clayton Bnlwor treaty nnd Canada presses for n decision regarding
the Alaskan frontier which is of
vital inti-mst to her. If arbitration
can anywhere be employed hero is
the place and no Opposition to it would
oomo from Great Britain or Canada,
for wo are confident of the justice of
our claims "
London, Mny 20. ���Tho Washington
correspondent of the Morning Post says :
"I am informed that the statements
representing that state department officials have reported the boundary die-
putO as hopeless are absolutely untrue.
The administration has been exceedingly annoyed by the statement, and
hopes that no creden-o will ho given
lo newspaper articles circulating the
rumors. Both President McKinley
and Secretary Hay hope that Sir Julian
Paunoefote will return to Washington
wUh such instructions from Lord Sal
isbnr.y ns will insure the settlement of
matters. "

CASE   FORWARDED  TO   SYNt. D.
Presbyterians   Refuse to Receive Back

Minneapolis, Mny 211.���Hermann
Warsznwink, the converted Jew, expelled two years ago, for alleged gambling, by the sessions of the fifth Ave
line church of New York, will have to
go to the New York Synod   for  relief.
Tho judicial committee appointed by

In respect to the memorial of the

mailer, hut left it to tho assembly,
which has not yet acted.

Nelson is waiting to bo moved up
to the front by that fast daily train
service over the Crow's Nest. It will
be bettor when the road is completed

the transfer at the Landing it will be
a great gain to this Oity and an important stop in advance to all of Kootenay. It is promised for a date between tho 16th aud 30th of June. It

it at that. He must
day aud give expression to his sentiment by marking a ballot for the bylaws. There is no other known way
iu which they can be carried. These
improvements aro all necessaary. They
cannot be made without money,
and the money cannot ho obtained
without the sanction of the oleclors.
Money by-laws are more often defeated
through neglect or indifference than
through opposition to tho purpose of
them, Let there be no neglect on Monday. Every elector having a pride in
tho City should make it his business to
attend at the polling and mark his
ballot FOR.
"With the large increase of population during the present year and the
consequent larger consumption of water, I have no hesitation ill saying
that with a cold winter, such as we
have just had, tho present water supply will be totally inadequate during
the coming winter," These are tho
City Engineer's words. The opinion
of which they are tho expression is
given on his professional reputation.
There may be differences in estimating
the iucrense of population, but any
one who will take the trouble to go up
and down our residential streets will
have ocular evidence of the most convincing character that there is a large
increase in the number of houses.
This means a largo increase iu tho
consumption of water. If we are content to depend on the accident of the
seasons, vre may forgo the duty of providing n supply for this increased de-
maud. That would be most culpable
imi rovidence. however. Wo cannot entrust onr domestic comfort and convenience to the mercy of an accident,
nor can we leave to chance the necessary means to protect our property
against tiro. It is the duty of the
ratepayers to do what is required of
them to euable tho Council to provide
a water supply that will assure safety
for the City against chance or accident of any kind. With this kuowl
edge of the situation, it is impossible
to conceive that the electors will refuse or neglect on Monday next to
vote for the waterworks by-law.
communicntion. Wo recognize, however, that tho Company havo done
wonders iu the time. Let us not be
too ready to hud fault. Rnilwnys cannot be protected in nil the details in
a day. When tho new service is established we will soon forget the little
inconveniences nnd aggravations of
tho past.
The sower by law has uu opposition,
Even professional obstructors have
too wholesome a dread of typhoid epidemics to go that length. Sewerage
nnd water supply run together, however, and an extension of our present
ewer system would be of little vnlue
t there wero not nn adequate sup-
lily of water. If wo vote ono of the
by-laws we must, to bo consistent,
vote both. The town has already
invested pretty heavily in the electric,
light plant, and to realise to advantage
it is necessary to expend more capital.
It will bo good business to vote the
electric light hy law. The ratepayers
have just been informed of the insufficiency of accommodation provided at the
City Hall, The position is not a cred -
ltnhle oue, nnd the money required for
improving it should bo voted on Monday. We are sure this will be done with
the greatest readiness and good will,
for parsinjony is not a characteristic of
Nelson citizens.
The town has not the least objection
in the world to a tramway. If a
company will build one, and expend
many thousands in tho enterprise, the
people will be glad to let them. They
will use it or not, ns they nlease, af-
ter it is built! but tho prospect of ir
is most welcome, and on Monday the
citizens will havo pleasure in voting
the franchise. Gas works arc everywhere regarded as a valuable additiion
to the enterprises of a City, and Nelson will be glad to allow Dr. Don-
little's company to establish them
here. The company stand all the cost;
we have only to grant tho permission.
THE ELECTIONS   IN  COLUMBIA.
Most   industrious   nnd    painstaking
efforts   have   been   made   to  frighten
lectors against voting for the money
by-laws, by flourishing in their faces
the bugbear of increased taxation.
The money is required because thn
town is growiug. If it wero not growing ; that is, if the population wera
not to bo greater than it was a year or
two ago, when its first municipal
equipment was provided, we could do
comfortably with what wo have. But
it has outgrown its clothes, nnd new
ones are necessary. It is this growth
that compels the expenditure of more
money, and the same growth will so
increase the assessment and other
wise contribute to the municipal revenues that the rate of taxation is
more likely be lessened than increased.
No town of healthy growth has ever
suffered through keeping up with its
requirements, ; nor will Nelson. The
danger of injury is in not doing it.
Tlio proposed expenditure is for requirements that aro absolutely necessary, and in providing them it is
doubtfnl if a ratepayer in tho City will
ever be sensible of increased charges
nn his business or property. On the
o intrary, the benefits that are certain
to result will improvo the condition
of both.

Matinee and Big Double   Bill   By the
Hairy Lindley Uo.
' Last evening the Harry Jjindley
company gave a smooth aud enjoyable
performance of Tillotson's pretty society drama, "Queena" or as it was called last night, "My Queen." The-art
ists showed that they were thoroiigly
familiar with (huh parts, something
that was lacking in some of the previous pieces. It is a pielty stoiy of a
separated husband and wife who were
happily brought together just before
the curtain went down on tho last
act, u habit that most of the plays of
this nature possess. The specialties
wero very good and were well applauded. Little Mys'ic's singing and
also the way sho handled her part in
tho play reflected grout credit on lior.
She is certainly a very clever lit'io girl.
This afternoon a piece that should
be very popular among tho children
will bo produced. It is "Uncle Tom's
Cabin" and the price for tho little
ones has been placed at 10 cents. For
nitidis tho price will be 2,"i cents.
This evening there will bo a big
double bill. "Our Boys" u standard
English comody aud tho old favorite
"Ton Nights in a Bar Room" will be
given. Between the two there Will bo
an olio of specialties, making in all
four hours of entertainment. Tho curtain will rise promptly at 8 o'clock
in order that it may bo rung down at
jnst one minute to 12 o'clock. Harry
Lindley is very popular in Nelson and
his friends should see that his last per-
forniance here should bo to a full
house.

Silverton, Mny 86.��� Silverton Minor's Union reorganized yesterday, tho
President nnd Secretary of tho Sandon
Minor's Union heiup; present assisting.
Three meetings were held, in the
forenoon, afternoon nnd evening. The
attitude of tho miners towards the
new state of things oansed by the eight
hour system was fully discussed and
the result was that tho miners determined to do every thing possible to retain the old rale of wiifjes under the
new state of things, to wulk out when
nn attempt would he made to re Inoe
tho wages and to stnv out until the
present ratH of wanes would lie conceded by the mine owners. The BlO-
cnii is therefore cortain to be afflicted
with a labor trouble in the near future
unless mine owners and miners can
como to terras,
* *  *
Mr. Seeley of  the Alexanrira-Delley
is down from the mine and staying
for a few days at the Royal. He reports orospocts as most enoouraging.
Development work is in active progress, and Mr. Seeloy's visit to town
is for tho purpose of engaging more
men.
*   *
Several very good claims lrnve been
discovered on the hill opposite the
little town of Kitchener. The ore carries a yood per courage of gold and
copper. The showing so far tire excellent. Five men arc working developing 0110 of the claims, and arc hopeful
of having struck a good thing.
* *   *
At Palmer's Bar there is considerable activity at present, among the little camp of prospectors located there.
CJold has been found in paying quantities on two claims recently taken up,
There were some good showings found
on the north fork of the Movie River
just before high water set in, but it
will bo some time before anything can
he done there. The water now is
some two feet deep over the claims.

Kelly's appearance on the stage was
invariably hailed as the forerunner of
unlimited fun. Mr. J. Wnldron, the
juvenile lead, Mr. Bittner and Mr.
Fredericks, who wns usually the vil-
lian also become favorites. The show-
is continuous with clever specialties,

berH a new tenor in their ranks,
whose voioe has been much admired

EAST KOOTENAY NEWS NOTES
A Chit With Ono  Who  Has Recently
Returnod From There.
Mr. G. A. Bigelow, tho well known
Nelson pioneer who has large lumber
interests near Creston is in the City
and yesterday discoursed to a Miner
reporter on the affairs of Creston and
kindred mutters with his usual pith
and point.    He said :
"The chances nre thnt ninny ot the
business' interests of CrcBton will be
transferred to  Crawford  Bay   in   the
near future. I know of several busi- \
iioss men who have  such   intentions, I
the reason being Unit tho work ou tho
Nelson-Bed lington railway will lie
oompleted by August 1, though Creston will always boa farming and mining center of importance.
"Crawford Bay, nioro properly
known as Crawford Creek is situated
six miles south of tho Pilot Bay smelter on the east shore of Kootenay
Lake. It is a mining region whioh
has been known for the past seven or
eight years, and is likely to come to
the front at once. From Kootonay
Lako to the summit, that is where St.
Mary's and Crawford Greeks, about 12
miles up, they split into six different
creeks leading off iu different directions. Prospecting has shown up good
surface showing" in thPt district, few
of the discoveries nut showing valuable mineral on ill- ��� face. I think
a stamriede is liki ly in rake plaeo in
that direotioil during tho next two
weeks. I know of several men now
going into business in that country.
"Business men are also being attracted towards Kitchener which is situated on Ihe OrOW'fl Nest Pass road
at tho junction of Russell Greek and
Gout River, and it is tho opinion of
some Of thn best and most experienced
mining men thai the surface indications near Kitchener in both directions point to the development of paying   mines.     Kvorybody     agrees   that
the surface showings   rtb remarkable,
They consist chiefly of big iron cap-
pings with values in gold and cop-
uer.''
