Queen Victoria Interred
the Royal Mausoleum
at Frogmore.
London, Feb. 4.���The King has seDt
the following message to all the  British colonies and dependencies:
"To my people beyond the seaH:
"The countless messages of loyal
sympathy that I have received from
every part of my dominions over the
seas testify to the universal grief in
which the whole empire now mourns
the Iobs of my beloved mother.
"In the welfare and prosperity of
her subjects throughout Great Britain, the Queen ever evinced n heartfelt interest. She saw with thankfulness the steady progress which, under
the wide extension of self government,
they had mace during her reign. She
warmly appreciated their unfailing
loyalty to her throne and person, and
-was proud to think cf those who had
���o nobly fought and died for the empire's cause in South Africa.
"I have already declared it would
be my constant endeavor to follow the
great example which has been bequeathed to me. In these endeavors I
shall have confident trust in the devotion and Bympathy of the people and
of their several representatives assembling throughout my vast colonial dominions. Witb such loyal support I
will, with the blessing of Qod, solemnly work for the promotion of the
common welfare aud security of onr
great empire, over which I have now
been called to reign.   (Sgd.)
Windsor, Feb. 4.���The last honors
have been paid to Queen Victoria.
Her body now rests peacefully near
that of her husband in the mausoleum
at Frogmore. The final ceremonies
were more of a funeral and pathetio
character than any of the obsequies
which preceded them. Shortly before
3 o'clock, in the presence of tbe royal
mourners, the Grenadier guard of
honor lifted the coffin from its tern
porary resting place in the Albert
memorial chapel, placing it on the gun
carriage. In the meantime, the
Queen's company of Grenadiers,drawn
up in the quadrangle presented arms
and wheeled into line, their rifle muzzles pointing to the rear, at the reverse, and with slow measured steps
marched towards the castle gate.
At tbe head of the procession was a
band playing Chopin's funeral march.
Slowly   the  cortege passed under the
massive archway on   tbe Long  Walk,
which was a mass of blaok brilliantly
edged with scarlet.    Lii.i   Guardsmen
kept  the crowds   hack.    In  place  on
the gun carriage  were  the  same regalia which had attracted   the eyes of
millions since the march to the  grave
began at Osborne. Close behind walked the   King,   Emperor William   and
the Duke of Connaught, wearing dark
[ military overcoats and   plumed cocked
hats and   looking   pale and careworn.
In similar dull attire were the  Kings
of Portugal   aud Belgium.   All heads
vere bent.    The blue  and gray of the
German   princes   redeemed  the   royal
group from perfect sombreness of color.    Behind these walked Queen Alexandra and the royal princesses deep-
| ly veiled.   The  Queen carried an umbrella but the others  had tbeir hands
I folded.   As   the   last   of  these veiled
: women passed out of the  castle, there
' came t<wo boys  dressed in  bright tartan kilts and velvet jackets.   Between
was a young girl, her fair loose  hi ir
glittering   against   the   crepe  of her
mourning.    Two   of   these were children   of   the   Princess of Battenberg
and the other was   little   Prince   Kd-
|ward   of   York.    His tiny legs  could
i hardly keep   pace even with the  flow
progress of the  mourning   band.    The
rear of tho procession was brought up
���by the suites of tbe kings and princes.
i   Down the Long Walk,with the band
���till  playing   Chopin's    dirge,    this
���brong  slowly  made its way to the
nausoleum.    The  horses attached   to
be gun carriage   were inclined to be
iBtirc, but, as an extra precaution, a I
band died away and pipers commenced their lament. There between the
brond avenuce of Btatcly trees, the
crowds wore the thickest, forming
dense black hanks.
By 3:30 p. m. the crowned bier
had passed into the other lodge,which
leads to the Frogmore enclosure, where
none but the family and servants were
admitted. The choir met them and
the royal family and their relatives
entered the burial place so dear to
the late Queen, ranging themselves on
each side of the coffin. The Bishop
of Winchester read the last part of the
burial service. After further singing
by the choir, the benediction was given and, amid the privacy of the family tomb, the last farewells were said,
the funeral came to an end,the mourners drove to the castle and the crowds
Amalgamation of the Granhy Properties���B. C. Mine Not Sold.
Montreal, Feb. 4.���The annual
meeting of tbe shareholders of the
Knobhill mine waB held here today.
The shareholders approved of the
amalgamation of the Gronby properties. It was explained that the capital would he {15,000,000 in $10 shares,
divided as follows: Knobhill 82,500,-
000, Old Ironsides 82,500,000, Grey
Eagle 82,225,000, smelter and town-
sites, 84,800,000, reserve 82,075,000.
The old board was re-elected.
The shareholders of the Majestic
mine also met and re-elected the old
directors. It was decided not to ship
from the mine until tbe railway
reaches it.
The owners here of the B. C. mine
deny the reported sale to an American
syndicate. No sale bas taken place
and none is expected.

Talk With the Late Division
Superintendent on Railroad Matters.
Among the arrivals at the Hotel
Phair last night was H. E. Beasley,
chief clerk in the office of President
Shaughnessy of the C. P. R., and for
merly superintendent of the Kootenay
and Boundary divisions of the road
with headquarters at Nelson. It will
be remembered that Mr. Beasley left
here about a year ago for Montreal
carrying with him a handsome gold
watch and a quantity of valuable silver plate as a token of the esteem of
Recently circumstances have taken a
turn which may result in the former
superintendent returning to Nelson
and assuming the duties of his old
office. The acquisition of the Yukon
steamers has made it necessary for
the C. P. B. to place in charge a competent steamboat man and it would
surprise no one if the chance fell to
Captain J. W. Troup, whose reputation as a steamboat and railroad man
is firmly established. This would
leave a vacancy here and it would not
be an unnatural sequence if Mr. Beasley*, who knows the ground thoroughly
and has the additional advantage of a
year's training as the president's
right hand man, would be selected to
fill the important post. When approached on the subject Mr. Beasley
"Some changes may be expeoted at
ban early date, but I dfcnnot make
any statement as tr their nature for
nothing has yet been announced.
Some particulars will probably be
known on tbe return of Captain Troup
a few days hence." Mr. Beasley was
then asked as to whether in event of
Captain Troup taking over a new post
in the north, there was a possibility
of the captain's mantle descending on
his shoulders.
"That is another subjeot on which
1 cannot speak, no course ot action
having been decided upon so far as I
am aware," wbb tbe reply.
It was admitted, however, by Mr.
Beasley that his 10 years' experience
in the west had resulted in a leaning
toward the country and the people
which would make his return grateful to bim.   Tbe further question was
Continued on Fourth Page.
North East Kootenay  hns at length
got an  assured  shipping   mine.    The
Paradise  has   come   to   stay.    H.  C.
Hammond,   of Toronto,  and R. Randolph  Bruce,   M.   E,   are  now   the
lucky owners  of   the Paradise,   says
the Golden Era.    When   this property
was   located   last year it created such
a sensation that  W. G. Mitchell-Innes
bonded  it  for  8150.000.     Subsequeut
assays, however, did  not   justify   the
high values at first reported, and   Mr.
Bruce  secured   it     on    a    favorable
bond of 830,000  with sufficiently long
terms  of  payment   to  enable him to
fully develop the property and test its
values,    Mr.   Bruce   has    now    been
operating   in East Kootenay for  four
years and has persistently stuck to  it
through good and il] report; and that
despite representations that have been
made  to him again and again by  the
best mining men of the Province  that
he   was  only   wasting   his   time  in
North East Kootenay   and   would  do
better to move  to   West   Kootenay or
the Boundary, where matters  were in
a more advanced   condition.    But Mr.
Bruce  has     confidence   in   his    own
judgment   and' stood to his   guns  in
North East Kootenay, with the result
that his persistence gives every promise of being   amply   rewarded.   It  is
now   seven   months   since Mr.   Bruce
took hold of thu Paradise and in  that
time he   has   taken   out and  sac-nod
ready for shipment 1,000 tons of  sand
carbonate ores  averaging about 845 a
ton in lead and   silver.   As   depth  is
gained the values   improve  aud  late
assays have given values of about 870.
This  ore   too   is   nearly   all  on   the
way to the Columbia river for   transportation to tho smelter in the spring.
This is   probably   the smartest record
in mining in the province���1,000  tons
of ore shipped  from   a mine 17  miles
back in tbe  mountains   within seven
months of starting operations,   and it
is the best tribute that could  be  paid
to !Mr.   Bruce's  able    management.
The Bosun mine at   Sandon, operated
by Mr. Sandiford for   the   Northwest
Syndicate,bas hitherto been the record-
breaker, but now the   Paradise  beats
it as a   virgin   shipper.    The   ores of
the Paradise are most valuable smelting ores, and under favorable smelting
conditions   would   command a premium for fluxing purposes.    The   work
done at tbe mine so far   is as follows:
A shaft of 10 feet was sunk   on  the
outcropping exposure of the sand carbonates and a drift was   run from the
bottom of the shaft for 40  feet.    This
work showed that   the  surface exposures were due to a   thiow over of  the
ore body.    Some further sinking  was
done at   the end  of  this drift.   Mi.
Bruce then   went   back to the  mouth
of the shatt and ran a tunnel   with  a
view to finding  the main  ore   body.
This   was  driven   through  40 feet of
vein  matter,   when   an   incline  was
then sunk   following the vein  which
dips at an angle of about  30   degrees.
In   this   incline  a   well-defined  ore-
chute showing five feet   of  solid   ore
was struck.    The vein is a contact between a blue lime and slate.   This incline is now being sunk and will connect with No. 2 tunnel,   wbich is being driven at a level of 125 feet below
No. 1 tunnel.    No. 4  tunnel   is being
run 250 feet below No.2 and is now in
300 feet, and it is  Mr.   Bruce's intention   to  upraise   from   No. 4  to   the
bottom of the   incline   on   No. 2 tunnel.    Should the ore body hold out, as
it gives every   promise   of  doing, the
result will be to   place   an   enormous
body of  ore in sight on the property.
No.   4   tunnel is now in 300 feet  and
is being pushed on  rapidly.    The cost
of the development   work  in that section is also   comparatively   small, the
aveiage cost   of the   present  contract
at the Paradise being  only about half
the usual cost of such   ciiiitriicts_liil.il-
erto let in the dstrict.
Mr. Bruce is now arranging to put
in a horse whim at the mouth of No.
1 tunnel with wbich to operate the
incline,   and  be  intends  increasing
the number of men at the mine and
beginning stoping out ore next week.
The big vein is oxidised more or less
ull through and carries bunches of
galena. The vein runs as much as 50
feet in width, with an average of 40
feet. The new incline now gives a
deptli of 100 feet on the ere body, and
to No. 2 level it will give 185 feet in
depth. The raise from No. 4 level
will thus give 375 feet of depth on the
ore body.
Mr Bruce has introduced a most
effective system of sampling at tbe
mine, so that an exact record is kept
of the values of every ton of ore tbat
goes out of the mine.
Substantial improvements have also
been made in connection with the
operations. A bunkhouse has been
built to accommodate 32 men, and
tbis building is now being Homed and
a bathroom provided for the workmen.
Substantial offices, storehouses and
cookhouse have also been built, while
at the landing an ore warehouse has
been bult of dimensions 100 feet by
51 feet. A trail has been constructed
4% miles in length to Spring creek,
with a drop of 1,000 feet to the mile;
thence an excellent wagon road, built
by the government, connects with the
landing on tbe Columbia river, 12
miles distant.
Capt. Armstrong has the contract
for the freighting out of the ore at a
contiact price of 87.50 a ton from the
mine to Golden, and another charge
of 35 cents covers tbe cost of handling
the ore at tbe mine, so tbat the total
cost of the ore landed on the railway
curs at Golden is 87.85 per ton. Mr.
Bruce is determined to bave tbe whole
of the thousand tons of ore out by the
end of February, so as to take no
chances on an early spring destroying the road for, hauling, and with
that object in view 50 horses will be
at once put on for haulage.
In the short time the Paradise mine
bas been- operated by Messrs. Hammond and Bruce it hus done .-more to
prove the mineral wealth of North
East Kootenay than ' all the mining
enterprises yet prdjected iu the district, and we wish these gentlemen
the success they deserve for the energy, ability and determination with
which they have, prosecuted the enterprise in the face of great difficulties,
as they took up this property at a
time when almost every other property had been shut down in the district and investors were crying out
that the district was no good. Men
who can do what Messrs. Hammond
and Bruce have done to annihilate the
spread of such ideas are benefactors
to any community or district in which
they operate. Mr. Bruce estimates
there is now 8100,000 worth of ore in
sight at the Paradise.

Among the visitors in Nelson today
is W. H. P. Clement, K. C, of Toronto, a well known Ontario lawyer
who has held an official position in
the Yukon for the past two years and
a half. During this period Mr. Clement occupied the position of advisor to the commissioner and council, a
post parallelling witb that of a crown
attorney in an organized province,
particularly as it carries with it a
Beat at and a voice in the council's
deliberations. In this capacity Mr.
Clement is naturally in a position to
discuss the history and future of the
Yukon from an inside point of view.
He went into Dawson in October 1808,
and came out for the last time in the
fall of last year. While still retaining his position technically, Mr. Clement bas signified his intention to the
minister of the interior of returning
no more to the golden north. Family
reasons led Mr. Clement to tbis decision by which the department loses a
capable and  trusted agent.
Mr. Clement is one of those who
believe tbat the Yukon has many
years of life ahead.   f
"I estimate," he says, "that-it
will take from eight to fifteen years
to exhaust the mineral in sight, tbat
is to thoroughly work the creeks
known to be gold bearing. Should
new discoveries be made in the meantime the existenee of the camps will
naturally be prolonged indefinitely.
When the gold gives ont tbe country
will quickly return to its pristine
condition. While it bas been found
practicable to raise some garden truck
during the brief summer when growth
is almost tropical, there is absolutely
nothing to keep the people in the
country save its minerals. During
my stay in Dawson the city underwent a remarkable change. For the
first year the rougher elements were
very much in evidence but last year a
great many men brought in their
families and tne social situation was
quite revolutionized. As this continues tbe city is bound to progress
from a social point of view. Dawon is
by no means an unhealthy point.
The rate of mortality has been phenomenally low barring one or two
epidemics of typhoid and pneumonia.
The city is now provided with good
water, however, and tbe danger of
typhoid outbreaks is done away witb.
As administrator of estates, deaths
were reported to me as they occurred
and I was surprised at the low rate.
In discussing this point, however,
it must be borne in mind tbat tbe
class of men who have gone into the
north are almost exclusively young
and hardy fellows with strong vitality. Last winter there were from
400 to 500 young children in the territory and if my memory serves me correctly there was not a single death
among the lot, which speaks volumes
for the healthiness of the climate.
"One of the striking features of
the history of the Yukon to date is
its freedom from the acts of lawlessness and crime which seem to be an
accompaniment of the development of
American mining camps. At Dawson
we bave had the case of the Indians
who killed a party of white men and
were executed, tbe King murder for
which King expiated his crime on the
gallows and that of O'Brien now under arrest charged with murdering a
trio of miners. In addition there
have been several oases of men shooting women, but on the whole the
crimes are such as would huve occurred anywhere and punishment has followed swiftly. There has never been
such a thing as hcld-ups. A man
could start at Dominion and walk into Dawson with a sack of gold across
bia shoulders and never dream of being molested. In Dawson the condition of affairs has been what I would
term 'ordelly disorder.' That is to say
we have had the gambling and other
undesirable elements in strong force,
but tbe authorities bave held a tight
rein and kept tbe rougher classes  in
close check. An object lesson of tho
security of life and property in Dnw-
son is given by- the pawnshops und
secolidliund stores. New men going
in Invariably curry a revolver or
gun but nfier a time found the wcu
pons Useless und disposed of them nt
a heavy loss. A gun is just so inin-li
waste metul in the Yukon toduy. The
miners have become so used to this
condition of affairs thut they cease to
regard it as unusual until the facts
are drawn to their attention when
the majority admit that they bave
much to be gratelul for."
Naturally Mr. Clement is diffident
about discussing the Yukon administration. Asked as to the feelings toward the royalty, however, he said:
"A direct tax is alwayB objectionable
to tbe persons on whom it is levied,
therefore it is not surprising that objection is taken, and strongly too, to
the ten per cent, royalty. The miners
argue that where the cost of work is
so great as in the Yukon, the tax
should be on the not rather than on
the groBs receipts. They say that
8100,000 in gold dust recovered represents a profit of only $30,000 to 840,-
000, and that the royalty on the gross
amount makes a serious and unreasonable inroad on the profits. In view of
the fact that in Nome and elsewhere
Canadians are unable to acquire
claims either by purchase or discovery, I believe that the royalty should
be levied to the hilt on Americans
operating in the Yukon and relaxed
us far as Canadians are concerned.
The difficulty arises in arranging a
practicable scheme to this end. When
you begin discriminating against
Americans their holdings can be transferred to Canadians, who act as straw
men, and there is danger of losing
the entire revenue. Apparently there
must be a large revenue to meet tbe
very heavy cost of administering the
territory and the royalty is the only
plan yet devised to meet the case."
Mr. Clement leaves today for Grand
Forks. He is spending some time in
the province and will probably locate
in the Kootenays.
G. McLeod Is Appointed City
Accountant and Collector.
Aid. Selous Suggests Amendment to Municipal Glauses Act.
Excellent Goal In Unlimited
Quantities Proved to Exist There.
Two well known Nelson men, Randolph E. Fishburn and T. G. Procter,
with V. Hyde Baker of Cranbrook,
have made a strike in the Crow's Nest
coal lands, whijh gives every indication of becoming one of the biggest, if
not the most, extensive, proposition
in the great coal territory to the east
of Nelson. For some months these
gentlemen have been working on the
problem and the result has been to
demonstrate the proportions of their
holdings. That it is an enormous coal
property is practically proved, and
the development of the situation during the next few months will be
awaited with keen interest. It is
freely predicted that Blairmore, the
new coal fields, will outclass the
Fernie fields, nnd that too at no distant date. The subject of the Kootenays' coal supply is of importance to
every resident of the country in a
greater or less degree, an*' it is satisfactory to learn that in the near future all danger of a shortage in the
fuel supply is to be removed hy the
addition of a heavy producer to the
present output.
Blairmore iB located 40 miles from
Fernie on the Crow' b Nest road, and
the syndicate's holdings include some
3,000 acres of coal lands. The coal
measures occur in a basin overlying
limestone. Tbe strike of tho senilis is
nearly north and south magnetic, and
they dip to the west. The conditions nre such that the property will
be a tunnel proposition for many
years to come, a feature which will
enable the owners to work on a must
ceo.Mimical basis. A number of
seams of coal exist, in some the coal
being a splendid quality of steaming
and domestic coal while in others the
product is a fine quality of coking
coal. One seam is 30 feet in width, a
Bccond is 23 feet wide and several
others exist four feet wide and upwards. The formation is such thnt
expert engineers predict that the
seams will be continuous nnd wholly
Inching in the undesirable elements
of faults nnd dirt. In view of this it
is next to impossible to estimute the
quantity of coal available for mining.

The city council's session lust night
brought forth several matters of more
than passing interest, piineipal umong
these being u recommendation regarding an addition to the city hall and
the appointment of a hew clerk for
the city hall in the person of C. McLeod, now employed at the C. P. It.
freight shed office.
The city hall enlargement came up
uBder the head of the bourd of works
report which deult with the following
1. That the work of opening up Vernon and Railway streets be commenced at once, estimated cost, 8500.
2. Tbat a sidewalk be laid on the
east side of Ward street from Carbonate to Silica, with a crossing at Carbonate street.
3. That the boulders on Silica street
between Ward and Cedar streets and
elsewhere where suoh boulders are an
obstruction, be removed.
4. That in regard to the agreement
between the oity and the Electric Dispatch Messenger Service company, tho
rental of city poles used by the company be placed at 25 cents per pole per
5. That the city weigh scales be
placed at the northwest corner of
Railway and Baker streets.
0. With reference to the question of
providing additional office accommodation at the city offices your committee has given the matter full consideration and would recommend that arrangements be made with the C. P. R.
for the closing of parts of certain
streets aud for the conveyance to the
city of certain property and that a by
law be submitted to the city, and, the
electors confirming the proposed arrangement, that the necessary addition to the city offices be made on
lots 5 and 6, block 10, at the rear of
the present offices when such lands are
acquired by the city, such addition to
consist of a one story building with
fire proof vault, the estimated cost of
such building and vault being  83,000,
7. That a sidewalk be laid on the
north side of Mill strict from Ward
to Josephine street.
8. That tenders be secured for the
supply of all material required in the
city work.
Tbe report was adopted as a whole.
In regard to the . proposed addition
to the city building it was stated that
the idea was to close up the foot of
Kootenay Btreet and the alley in
block 04, both of which are valueless
from the standpoint of everyone save
the C. P. R., receiving from the company in exchange the lots behind the
city hall and the corner lots in block
04 across from the registry offices. A
bylaw was brought in covering the
closing of the ground and its transfer
to the company, but the whole matter stands subject to a deal being consummated with the railroad people.
A petition was read from residents
on Railway street and another from
Victoiia street residents protesting
against the existence of wash houses
in both vicinities and requesting the
council to take action in the diiection
of having tbe objectionable buildings
removed. J. H. Matheson and J.
Coxbead appeared on behalf of the
Victoria street petitioners and both
addressed the council. The former
urged the counsil to abate the laundry
nuisances on the ground that in each
case the washrooms were located in
basements from which steam nnd
fumes arose into neighbors' houses,
that the houses were overcrowded,
sometimes containing as many as 100
men, that the Victoria street sidewalk
was used by scores of Chinamen carrying washing, often crowding ladies
off the walks, and that insurance
rates were raised 3)4 per cent, by the
proximity of the laundries. J. Cox-
head followed in similar terms.
The mayor informed the deputation

The Nelson Miner
The secret of tbo commercial and
manufacturing supremacy of modern
England is due to her immense coal
deposits in close proximity to her iron
mines, and the mnnufactuiing cen-
treB where various raw materials are
brought in to be worked up. Abundant, and therefore cheap, fuel was
and is the key to the situation. The
most superficial knowledge of what
these conditions have brought about
in England will lend to an appreciation of the Incalculable value to southern British Columbia of the immense
ooal deposits which urc now in vuri-
ous stagos of exploitation in East Kootenay along the lino of the Crow's
Nest Pass railway.
The coal mines at Pernio are already well known, and now, aB will
be seen from an article appearing elsewhere, the Blairmore coal fields, own ���
ed by local men, are proving to he of
equal if not vaster extent, while Montana capitalists are also opening up
coal mines in the same region.
Not only will the development of
these mines settle once and for all the
domestic fuel question, but it should
give our smelters at least one advantage over the American reduction
works, most of which have to haul
their fuel for long distances. It is not
necessary to dilato upon the importance to Kootenay of anything that
will stimulate our smelter industry,
but we may fairly look further ahead
than that. Experience has shown that,
barring exceptional circumstances, it
is cheaper to bring the raw material
to the fuel than to transport the fuel
to the raw material. There are numerous industries in the east that could
be more profitably operated here, given cheap fuel and transportation, than
in their present location. Canada, too,
is but In its infancy, industrially
speaking, and what more desirable
place could there be for the establishment of a new industry, than in a
district where, cheap fuel and unlimited waterpower abound, with adequate transportation facilities. The
East Kootenay coal fields, properly
handled, will not only be of great
benefit to our present sole great industry���the mining industry���hut, unless history stultifies itself, should
also be the means of making the Kootenays famous among the manufacturing districts of the world.
Another factor in the situation,
through it is one of more immediate
interest to the fortunate owners of the
coal lands than to the Kootenays at
large, is that in Great Britain the
reserves of steam coal, though there
are still unlimited quantities of soft
coal, are within measurable distance
of depletion. In fact there is at this
moment in Eastern Canada a representative of one of the largest old
country manufacturing fiima who
is here for the avowed purpose of examining tbe Canadian deposits of
steam coal. If he be well advised he
will come west.

The structure stands on high brick
walla to raise it from the damp soil
of Frogmore. The cupola, from the
windows of which the interior is
lighted, is eighty feet above the
ground, nnd is colored blue and gold.
The rest of the mouument is mainly
of Peterhead granite.
There is a central chamber and four
transepts, giving the building a cruciform shape. At each side of the entrance stands a bronze figure of an
angel, one bearing a sword, and the
other a trumpet. The first object
seen ou entering is an altar, which
fnces the door from under a fresco of
Christ breaking out of the tomb.

murhles, frescoes and reliefs. Among
the statues are figures of Daniel,
David, Solomon and Isaiah. A recum-
lieiu statute of the Grand Duchess of
Hesse und her child, occupies a prominent place.
The American navy is to receive
additions in the form of several battleships that can send all tbe other
navies to the bottom. This only applies to existing navies. We shall
not build our Canadian navy until
these American terrors of the Bea are
out of date.���Toronto Globe.

Alderman   Selous'     suggestion   last
���night that the council petition the local member   to   introduce   an amendment   to   the   Municipal   Clauses Act I
providing that   the   voting   power   of,
rate payers   on   money bylaws   be   in I
proportion to the respective amount of |
taxes paid on their real   estate, is one
which will   provoke  considerable dis
cussion   and   probably   opposition in
some   quarters.    The  council   seemed
favorably   inclined   to   the   idea last
night, and   indeed   there is   much   to
be   said   for    it.    Shareholders   in   a
joint stock company have voting power according to   the number of shares
they   hold,   and   when   it   comeB    to
voting on a   money   bylaw,   which is
tantamount to a mortgage  on the real
estate of   the   city,   why   should   not
the property owners, who for the purposes of tbe bylaw ure shareholders in
that   real   estate, have  voting   power
in proportion to their holdings?

Continued from First Page.
The total will safely ron into tbe
millions of tons, a piorainent engineer and expert on coal prospects,
stating that Blah-more is the most
extensive thing he has yet seen in the
line of coal lands. The fact that the
coal can be mined through tunnels,
that the roof will be of strong shale
probably the best material for this
purpose, that excellent timber is
available on the ground, that the Old
Man river running through the
ground*J furnishes an abundance of
water and that an immense body of
ooal exists on the property combine to
make the proposition exceptional.
The demand for good coal Is practically unlimited. The growth of the
smelter industry will create a demand
for the product far beyond the present
producing power of the mines now
(hipping in the Kootenuys, while the
domestic ooal has a wide field begin-
ing in Manitoba and extending to the
western boundaries of the KootenayB.
Any surplus will be marketable to a
very large tonnage in Montana where
the railroads and smelters are very
largo consumers. That Blairmore coal
is all that can be desired is shown
by the appended analysis:
Coal Coke
Percent   Percent
Fixed Carbon ou.3 93.5
Volatile matter 24.2
Ash  �� 0.5
Sulphur Slight
At the present time a crew is at
work on the property. Development
work Is under way. The principal
features of the programme now being
followed are three tunnels for the purpose of developing the various seams.
On properties within four miles of
Blairmore four Montana outfits are
developing ooal beds, and from one of
these a shipment was made last week
to C. W. West tit Co , of this city.
The test given the article as a domestic ooal has been eminently satisfactory.
The development of coal fields adjacent to the metalliferous districts of
the Kootenays is one of the factors
which will contribute to tbe development of the entire country. Aside
from tbis every householder will appreciate tbe advantage of having an
unfailing supply of fuel, in which
event the annoyance experienced recently when the coal supply fell con-

quickly cures Coughs, Colds and Lung
troubles of the severest nature, removing, as it does, the cause of the affec-
ton and leaving the parts in a strong
and healthy condition. It is not an
experimental medicine, but has stood
the test or years, giving satisfaction
in every case, which its rapidly increasing sale every season confirms.

James McPhee has assumed his new
duties as superintendent of the city

know exactly when new tenants begin
to use the lights and can charge accordingly.
An interesting instance of the efficacy of Miner a>is is furnished by the
appended letter received by A. P,
Kosenberger of the Prospectors' Exchange, K.-W.-C. block, from a Boston, Mass., man: "Sir,���Your ad in
the Nelson Miner noted. Send me
descriptive circulars of various free
milliner, low grade, gold, partly developed properties you may have located
on the main or north fork of Wild
Horse creek, near Ymir." The Miner
has never claimed The Hub city as
part of its territory but apparently
nothing but modesty prevented the
claim being established.
A very interesting game of hockey
was played on Sunday afternoon be
tween the Nelson TenniB club and the
Electric Tramway company. The
matoh was keenly contested. Two
games were scored within five minutes by the Tennis club and it looked
as though the knights of the ball and
racquet had a cinch. Owing to a
marked disparity in the age of the
contestants the Tramway team won
out by six goals to four. R. Carley
officiated as reteree and scored a hit
in this capacity. A. Malnwaring-
Johnson kept the time sheet for the

a dangerous wound in the neck in

her huBbanrt. On Friday last Howard
became enraged at the woman and attacked her with a knife. He inflicted
a wound several inches long on the
left side of her neck, narrowly missing the jugular vein. On hearing the
woman'B screams several men rushed
in and one of the number, named
Shannon, arrested Howard and took
him to Creston. The charge of attempted murder waB placed against
him and he was arraigned before E.
Mallaudaine, J. I'., who committed
the prisoner for trial. The woman
was aiso brought up on the charge of
keeping a disorderly house and sentenced to a month's imprisonment.
Both were brought in last night.
ditions under which other tradesmen
work tho carpenters believe they are
entitled to the concessions requested
of the employing contractors. For
instance, a bricklayer's helper is paid
the snmo wage for eight hour's work
as is received by the carpenter.despite
the fact that the bricklayer's helper
is not a tradesman nor has be to own
and transport from 8*.'5 to $200
worth of toola. If a man devotes Sf
eral years of his life toward acquiring
a trade be is entitled to as much con
sideratlon as a laborer. Another feature is that according to our view of
the matter the change will not affect
the cost of building more than five per
cent, at the outside. Employers un
der the new conditions will Insist on
securing the very best and most skillful tradesmen and the result will be
that their work will be done faster
and better than was the case formerly
when indifferent workmen were employed. We have gone into figures
pretty thoroughly and have demonstrated tnat the increased cost of
work will be very small."

Callahan Sentenced���Several Chamber*
Matters Settled.
Yesterday was another busy day at
the Nelson court house. In the morning His Honor Judge Forin held a
session of the speedy trials court at
which two prisoners appeared. The
first was Patrick Callahan, charged
with the theft of a diamond ring val
ued at 8150 from Mrs. Cardenal of
Moyie. Callahan elected to be tried
speedily and pleaded guilty. He was
sentenced to three months' imprisonment in the provincial jail. Another
charge of breaking jail at Fernie was
then heard. Callahan pleaded guilty
to this also and was sentenced to three
months' impiisonment, the sentences
to be concurrent.
James Hogan was arraigned on a
charge of non -support. The matter
was remanded till today.
Later his honor presided at a sitting
of chambers at which several matters
came up. Application was made in
the case of Briggs vs. NeW8wander,by
S. S. Taylor. K. C, Mr. McAnn, Kaslo, contra. The application was refused. In the case of Oppenheimer
vs. Brackman tit Ker Milling Co.,
Ltd., application was made by S. S.
Taylor, K. O, for a jury, John Elliot,
contra. An order was made by consent for a special jury.
During the afternoon a couple of
examinations took place. Mrs. Mc-
Innes, one of the defendants in Marino vs. Alexander, was examined for
discovery by John Elliot and S. News-
wander, defendant in the case of
Briggs vs. Newswander, was examined by S. S. Taylor.
It is understood that the suit ol
Fawcett vs. C. P. R., one of the most
interesting cases on the docket for
the supreme court sittings, will come
up on the 11th inst.

out that the Chinamen had complied
with the law and that it would be necessary to prove them a nuisance before the removal could be insisted upon. On motion of Alderman Selous it
was decided to refer the matter to the
mayor to consult with the sanitary
and medical officers and the city solicitor to devise methods.
A petition was presented from a
number of residents of lot 182, group
1, Kootenay, adjoining the city on the
east requesting to be taken into the
city. This waB referred to the city
solicitor. The appointment of an accountant and collector for the city
hall was taken up, applications being
read from E. Anderson, C. E. Beasley, G. S. Beer, A. H. Hawthorne, C.
Maeleod, 0. Newlingand T. Bradford.
Macleod received six votes and was
declared appointed by the mayor.
The money bylaws regarding the
withdrawal of the 870,000 debentures
of last year and the new 8100,000 issue
were brought up and advanced to the
third reading, Alderman Hamilton
taking the chair in committee of the
whole. The ballotting on the bylaw
was arranged to take place on the
10th inst. The bylaws will be published in The Miner. The reconsideration and final action on the measures are set down for tha first meeting of council after the voting.
Aldermen Selous and Paterson were
appointed fire wardens for the ensuing
Aldermen Paterson and Madden
introduced a lengthy resolution dealing with health matters. Their
suggestion was that the sanitary department be instructed to remove all
nuisances from alleys and backyards
throughout the city,also to inspect all
elevated sidewalks and to remove
from beneath them any offensive matter found there.   Tbis was carried.
Alderman Selous brought up an interesting topic by requesting the coun-
oil to join in a petition to the representative of the Nelson riding in the
legislature requesting him to introduce on the floor of the house an
amendment to the municipal clauses
act which would provide that in voting on money bylaws electors should
exercise voting powers in proportion
to their real estate holdings or the
amount of taxes paid annually by
eash. The idea was not opposed and
went on record as a notice ot motion
to be brought up at the next meeting.
At the suggestion of tbe mayor a
resolution was carried calling upon
the government to appoint district
health inspectors for the purpose of
preventing the influx of smallpox and
other contagious diseases from the
state of Washington, and other infected districts. A letter was read
from the Nelson Power company per
J. Keith Reid offering to sell the city
electrical power in any quantity desired. It was pointed out that the
company controlled the only available
site for a power house between tbe
city and Bonnineton Falls and were
in a position to have their enterprise
in operation within three months of
the placing of the order for the plant.
The matter was referred to the.fire,
water and light committee.
This concluded the docket  of  business  and    council    adjourned.   The
members      present      were:     Mayor
Fletcher, Aldermen Hamilton, Selous,
Irving,    Gillett  and   Pat-
asked as to whether anything would
be done in the direction of forming
the Kootenays and Boundary into a
district under a general superintendent, to which he replied:
"I believe I am correct in stating a
that no change of that nature nas
ever been contemplated.-'
Speaking of railroad matters generally in this province Mr. Beasley
"Naturally I have followed the
course of events in British Columbia
from a railroad standpoint closely.and
think everyone must admit that the
C. P. R. has held the best interests of
the country In view. The eompnny's
policy has been to provide transportation facilities when any particular
section required them, and the west
has been looked after well. The Nelson dlBtrlot will profit thiB year by
the expenditure in the vicinity of the
city of fully a quarter of a million
dollars. Part of this is the appropriation for improving the road between
here and Robson and the balance is
the sum to be disbursed for labor during the construction of the bridge
across the Columbia. The whole
amount will go to labor on the 28
miles of roaa between Nelson and
Robson and should benefit this city
very materially. It is early yet to
state what effect the completion of
the Columbia bridge will have on the
passenger serivce, bit the prediction
is safe that the company will meet
every demand of the traffic. We have
started work on the Lardo wharf and
the steel for the road is now on the
way. This will probably remove any
lingering doubts as to the company's
intentions in that direction."
Mr. Beasley's mission in Nelson is
as a witness in the suit of Fawcett
vs. C. K R,, the accident by which
the late Conductor Fawcett loBt hiB life
having happened while he was divis.
ion superintendent. As the trial of
the case has been set down for the
11th instant; Mr. Beasley will have
an excellent.oppprtunity of renewing
old friendships.

of United States citizens against
Spain which the government of the
United States assumed by the treaty

bill so as to refer the claims to the
