Nelson,   British  Columbia. Saturday,   February 23, 1901.
Eleventh  Year
MUST REFINE
OUR OWN ORES
W. E. Zwieky Points Out the
Advantages That will
Accrue.
Factories are Also Needed to
' Manufacture the Refined
Product.
1 W. E. Zwieky manager of the Payne
mine is among the prominent mining
men who are watching with the keenest interest thu development ot the silver-lead Die market problem. As the
head of the largest and richest producer in the Slocan his views will naturally cany weight, and it is worthy
of note that Mr. Zwieky comes out
strongly in favor of the establishment
of a refinery in the Kootenays. Referring to the proposition submitted to
the government to the Dominion
government by an eastern syndicate
aa detailed in yesterday's Miner, the
manager of the Payne says:
"The erection of a refinery at the
present juncture would be a great
boon to the silver-lead mining industry. The proposition now before the
government would
ANSWER THE PURPOSE,
though I have not gone into the figures closely enough to give an opinion
as to whether the subsidy asked, 85
jper ton for the refined product, is rea-
;sonable or not. The refinery would
be a big stride in the right direction.
-The lead industry in British Columbia demands to ensure prosperity
that not only shall the lead be mined
and refined here, but that It shall be
manufactured. When British Columbia is turning out the product of her
silver lead mines In the form of lead
pipe, sheet lead, paint, etc., we will
be independent of American trusts
and in a position to compete for the
-world's trade on an equality with all
���the world. Canada, itself,would take
a large share of the manufactured output, and the residne, I should gay,
���eould be placed with ease
IN THE ORIENTAL  MARKET
.that will be reopened   long before the
refinery   is   established.     I    do  not
I  think we sbould stop  at the construc-
r   tion of the   refinery.    Competition   is
I ao severe in tbese days  that a mining
; section,to secure the best results.must
be thoroughly np to date.   Give us the
jrefinery   by   all    means,    but ' don't
stop until the   factory   is equally   an
-accomplished fact."
THE PAYNE MINE
'.- Is now shipping its ore to  Trail, and
it ia understood tbat a  portion of the
| output ia  being   treated   at   Everett,
Washington.    The   output   is not   as
Barge-- as. was the case   last year, but
Ijwpecial attention   is being paid to development.   The most interesting tea
,|ure of the new -work is the large tunnel under way to tap the' main vein at
.|*1 point   950   feet   below   the  present
.- ifcorings.    The   tunnel starts 400 -feet
' ifrelow the present main . tunnel and is
,'.' to be driven 1;500  feet in   the  course
I of which the additional depth is gain's ed.    The outcome of   the new work is
I awaited with interest by Slocan   min-
I ing     men     generally.    Should      the
^ayne's ore chute prove continuous at
this   additional   depth,   the  existing
theory that the Slocan ore bodies hold
good   and   even   Improve   with   deep
Workings will   be practically confirmed.    In addition the Payne's ore body
���will be just doubled  and many years'
reserves of ore blocked out.
��� * SMELTER READY TO START.
- H. E. Price of   Quebec city, Was- in
Nelson yesterday   en   route east from
Greenwood where he has spent several
Weeks in connection  with   the Standard Smelter enterprise. He is a brother of the well known Quebec   millionaire lumber man who is financing the
new Greenwood  smelter^  Mr.   Price
'states---that- the   Standard    Smelter's
plant   io" practically   completed   and
that the operation of blowing in   now
awaits the  arrival of sufficient ore at
the smelter to ensure   a   safe reserve.
The Institution will   treat   about  350
tons dally and is to operate exclusively on custom ore until the mines operated by afHiliated   companies are on a
shipping  basis.    The   smelter has received five or   six   oars of coal during
the last few days.    Mr. Price left this
nlorning for the east.
���   ���  a
Notice   was filed at the mining re
corder's olllce yesterday that D. II.
Mm in, whose miner's licanse had
lapsed, applied to have his interest in
the Farnham claim entered in the
names of J. C. Spcllmnn and Albert
Grey.

WATER-RIGHTS
Referred Back to Land Commissioner���Payment on
Yellow Jacket.
Rossland, Feb. 22. ���Chief Justice
McColl, at a sitting of the supreme
court here today, granted an order
referring back to the land commissioner at Nelson for re-consid.iration
a former decision of the commissioner
awarding to the Trail smelter certain
valuable water rights on Murphy,
Trail and Stoney creeks. The order
was sought by the War Eagle and
Center Star mining companies, which
held that the Nelson award had been
made without their knowledge and at
a time when their own applications
for water rights were pending before
the gold commissioner at Rossland.
The effect of the chief justice's order
will be to enable the land commissioner to cancel, or amend his first
award and to allow the interests of
all the parties to he  considered.
The second payment consisting of
820,000 was made by the Onondaga
Mining Co. yesterday to Messrs. J
M. and C. B. Etner and J. tit D. Cro-
mie. The claims purchased consist of
tbe Maude S, Yellow Jacket, Standard
and Touch Me Not mineral claims,
situated some seven miles from Waterloo, which the Onondaga Mining Co.
has been formed to operate. The property was purchased by the Will brothers of Syracuse, N. Y., for? 805,000.
Ten thousand dollars was paid down
last year, and 820,000 yesterday by
Mr. Thomas James, the manager for
the company. The balance of the
purchase price, consisting of 835,000,
is to be paid in about 00 days.
The properties purchased have been
under development since September
last and the showing of ore caused
the management recently to purchase
a ten stamp mill. The mill plant is
now on tin* ground and will be-in
operation in about three months.
Thirty-five men are employed in the
erection of the mill and in tbe development of the property.
The Will brothers are wealthy mining men and candle -manufacturers,
and have made a great deal of money
in both mining and manufacturing.
Mining men speak in high terms of
the possibilities of the properties of
the Onondaga Mining company, the
capital stock of whlcn is all held by
the Will brothers.
WINNIPEG NOTES.
(SPECIAL��TO THE MINER.)
Winnipeg, Feb. 22.���Armstrong, an
old man of 70, who has a notorious
record as a counterfeiter and recently
confessed his guilt on the charge, wag
sentenced today to three years in the
penitentiary.
Hon. D. II. MacFaddcn, provincial
secretary, has been re-elected grand
master of tbe Orange grand lodge of
Manitoba.
LOST AT GOLDEN GATE
Big Packet Boat Rio de Janeiro Strikes on
a Rock in a Fog-One Hundred and
Fifty Lives Lost-Consul Wild-
man Among the Dead.
San Francisco, Feb. 22.���The stenm-
ship Rio de Janeiro sank outside the
Golden Gate th.s morning. The Rio
de Janeiro was due from Yokohuma
and Hong Kong with a number of
passengers and a valuable cargo. There
was a dense fog all night and this
morning on the bay and outside the
head. She struck on a ledge of rock
while entering Golden Gate and sank
in 20 minutes. A large number of people were drowned.
There are several conflicting stories concerning the fate of the captain. The steward says he stood beside the captain when the vessel went
down. Two other survivors say that
they also saw the captain but Quarter-
roaster Frederick Lindstrom emphatically declares that Captain Ward
went down into his cabin where he
met his doom behind a locked door.
It is certain that Captain Ward was
drowned, however.
From stories of the survivors of the
calamity, all of which conflict more
or less in detail, it is safe to presume
that Pilot Jordan, wbo was in charge,
is the only living person qualified to
tell bow the catastrophe happened and
who is responsible for it. Captain
Ward is dead and between him and
the pilot the sbip was steered to her
dooin. Jordan's story is to the effect
that when the ship had entered the
Heads, the fog enveloped her. He
notified the captain^that it was unsafe
to proceed but the latter ordered him
to go ahead. The captain's order was
obeyed and then the pilot confesses
himself at fault. For, the moment he
took tbe ship in band,his authority in
all matters pertaining to ber navigation was supreme and he was responsible for her safety and the lives of
the people upon her.
There are also conflicting statements as to the conduct of the officers
and ciew. Some say the officers and
sailors were cool and conscientiously
endeuvored to get out the boats and
save as many passengers as possible,
while others declare that as soon as
the seriousness of tbe situation became apparent there was an end to
discipline among the seamen,and that
it waB every man for himself. Captain Ward's voice was heard above
the shrieks of the women and the
howling ol the Chinese ordering the
men to save the women. In the
launching'of tbe boats, it is said,confusion prevailed, and one load of passengers and sailors was dumped into
the sea. The first boat that got
away carried several of the ship's
officers, and the boat was impaled upon a spar as the men aboard it were
trying to row away from the suction
caused by the sinking vessel.
Four boats were cleared, but, so far
as can be learned, only one of them
got safely away and landed its passengers. Italian fishermen occupied
the others. The wreck lies about
three-fourths of a mile south of Fort
Point and about a thousand yards off
the rock shore.
Quartermaster Lindstrom says thu
lead was carefully used wbile the ship
was coming in and that the sounding taken a moment before she struck
showed a depth of water more than
sufficient to float a vessel of double
her draught., Fog signals were con-
stantly sounded and every possible
precaution was taken against accident. Lindstrom is at a loss to account for the ship getting so far from
the regular channel.
Quartermaster Lindstrom had the
wheel when the steamer struck and
his  narrative is Interesting.
"I was on the look out," ho said,
"when I heard the pilot yell and the
next inBtant the ship struck. Instantly all was confusion. Many of the
passengers had assembled on deck to
see the harbor as the ship passed and
the women seemed to lose control of
themselves. They sereamed and the
men, crew and passengers apparently
were dazed by the suddenness of the
calamity. My attention was olaimed
by the ship, however, and I bbw at
once she was badly punctured.    When
she struck she was beginning to settle
by tbe head and in a short time went
down. When I saw all hope of saving the vessel was lost, I turned in
and aided the officers and crew in saving the passengers. The Chinese were
even more panic sticken than the women. They rushed about the deck,
howling, and some of them jumped
overboard in their frenzy. We did
our best to get the boats, but our time
was limited and I do not know just
how many boats werelaunched. I saw
three boats filled with people leave the
ship, but what became of them I had
no means of ascertaining."
Captain Ward had been in the
employ of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company for many years He
first entered the service as a cadet on
the steamship Tokio and in 1888 waa
assigned to thu command of tbe Rio
de Janeiro. Later he was transferred
to the Peru, and then to the China,
and then to the City of Pekin. He
was then placed in charge of the Rio
de Janeiro again, and had been three
years and a half on the ship. Captain
Ward was 35 years old and a native
of North Carolina. A sister and two
of his brothers are residents of Raleigh.
Ten bodies were recovered, two
white Women, one white man and seven Chinese. It is thought that nearly
150 persons were drowned. The most
prominent passengers on the steamer
were Hounsaville Wildmau, U. S,'
consul at Hong Kong, who was accompanied by his wife and two children. It is thought all are drowned.
The ship was in command of Pilot
Frederick Jordan when she struck.
As nearly as can be learned there
were 234 people on board the Rio de.
Janeiro as follows; Cabin passengers, 20; second cabin; steerage (Chinese and Japanese) 58; officers and
crew, 140. The following have been,
accounted for; Rescued 70, bodies at'

(SPECIAL TO THE ItllNEII.)
Ottawa, Feb. 22.���At a conservative
caucus last night, it was decided unanimously to support an increase in
the sessional indemnity of members to
81,500 and also a salary to the leader
of the opposition of 98,000 in addition
to his indemnity.
OTTAWA NOTES.
(SPECIAL TO THE MIXER.)
Ottawa, Feb. 22,���The government
will receive a joint delegation from
the Canadian boards of trade nnd labor unions on March 5. Thu usual
annual delegation from the Labor
Congress will wait on the government
on March 4. Dr. Geo, Landerkin will
be gazetted a senator tomorrow.
CABINET MEETS
Differences Between Britain
and United Status are
Discussed.
London, Feb. 22.���In spite of tbe
great secrecy with which, as is usual,
the deliberations of the cabinet are.
guarded, tbe Associated Press is able
to assert that one of the subjects un
der discussion at today's meeting was
a despatch from Lord Pauneefote,
which, it is understood, dealt with
the probable attitude of the United
States toward Great Britain's counter
proposals in the Nicaragua canal
matter. Inquiries in official quaters
as to whether the Nicaragua or China
questions were even mentioned meet
with the inevitable non-committal answer that all the proceedings of the
cabinet are carried on with the the
greatsst privacy, and that it is impossible to admit the truth or falsity
of suppositions regarding even the
general nature of the affairs discussed. As the official action resulting
fiom today's meeting has not yet had
time to take definite shape, it is impossible to say what conclusions were
reached. United States Ambassador
Gboate will probably be summoned to
tbe foreign oflice next Monday, when
Lord Lansdowne is likely to communicate to him the British views regarding the Nicaragua and China controversies.
No expectation need be entertained
that this interview will settle one
way or the other the Nicaragua canal
difficulty. Great Britain has no intention of ratifying the Hay-Paunee-
fote treaty in the form desjred by the
senate unless her counter proposals
are agreed to within the short time
which remains before that treaty
lapses, and this is recognized to be almost Impossible.
Further information was desired
from Lord Pauneefote, and at the
request of Lord Lansdowne,he sent the
despatch which was discussed today.
There is no reason to believe that it
has affected the decision, previously
announced by the Associated Press,
that the British government has decided not to give in to the demands
of the senate without a "quid pro
quo."
MERCENARIES CAPTURED.
London, Feb. 23.���A despatch to the
Daily Mail from I'ictermaritzburg
records the capture of a gang of German mercenaries and dynamiters who
were attempting to destroy a bridge
near Krugersdorp. After they were
catpured they tried to escape, and
some of them had to be shot down.

Gallagher.
1   r-.'lnfl, Feb. 22.���The questions to-
......  i.i the house of   commons were of
lilt'.c general interest, hut Mr. St.
John Ilroderick, secretary of war,
took the occasion to offer an explanation regarding the retiiemect of Major General Colvllle for which he (Mr.
Roderick) has been so much criticized. General Colville, said Mr. Broderick, had been sent home by Lord
Roberts for inefficiency in the field.
General Colville had never been tried,
and thiugh his case had been considered on his return to England and
he had been allowed to resume his
command at Gibraltar, he had
NOT BEEN EXONERATED
from blame. Subsequently tieneral
Sir Evelyn Wood, tbe adjutant-general, had brought the Llndley disaster
to Mr. Broderick's notice. After consultation with Lord Roberts, wbo had
advised that General Colville should
not be allowed to retain his command
at Gibraltar,Mr. Broderick had ordered action in accordance with tbis advice.
Mr. Ilroderick added that he understood the matter would be brought
to the attention of the house Inter,
and therefore he would defer a fuller
Statement.
Replying to Mr. Redmond, Irish nationalist, Mr. Broderick admitted that
Lord Roberts had previously commended General Colville, but subsequent events necessitated Ins removal
from the army. Replying to Mr.
Dillon, Irish nationalist, Mr. Broderick said he had received a telegram
from Sir Alfred Milner confirming the
Hi treatment of natives by the Boers
at Calvin Sir Alfred Milner said
he had absolutely no doubt but that
the
BOERS MURDERED THE MAN
named Esau who was flogged and   afterwards shot.
Lord Cranhorne, parliamentary
secretary for the foreign oflice, assured Mr. Redmond that the Emperor of
Germany had not offered to arbitrate
the question of terminating the war
in South Africa.
Replying to a question on the cost
of the war, Sir Michael Hicks-
Beach, chancellor of the exchequer,
said thus far _81,(Mr,O00 worth of
bonds hud been issued, and that the
weekly issue was fiom ��1,000,000 to
B 1,2 50,000.
Mr St. John Broderick imparted the
information that the Boers in the
field had recently been estimated at
from nineteen to twenty thousand.
In January there were 10,000 Boer
prisoners and this number had since
been increased.
Lord Salisbury, in the house of
lords today,referring to the nuti-Cath-
olic declaration contained In the oath
which King Edward took at the opening of parliament, suid that though
he
DEPLORED THE LANGUAGE
in which the declaration was couched,
it must be remembered that the enactment represented the passions and
feelings of the period when it was
adopted. The passions of parliament
now were not so strong, but there
were undoubtedly parts of the country where the controversy which the
declaration represented still flourished, ��nd where the emotions wbich it
produced had not died out. If legislation were undertaken it ought to be
started in the house of commons, and
he wns not certain but that strong
feelings might be aroused there.

The Nelson Miner
THE COAL  SUPPLY.
__o*f*"
II is to be hoped that Mouday evening's meeting of the   Nelson Board (
Trade   will   be   largely attended,   a
the matter which will be   discussed i*
of vital importance to the district.
In its issue of yesterday The   Miner
reproduced from the Vancouver World
a report   of   an    interview    with Mr.
Ellas   Rogers,   managing   director  of
the Crow's Nest Pass   Coal   company.
Mr. Rogers   indulged   in   a repetition
of the   arguments   which   have  been
advanced time and again on the question of the smelters and   the  coul and
coke supply, but it will be interesting
to examine into   the   matter   a   little
and see if he is   unite correct   in   his
contentions.      lie   says   that   at   the
present moment tha company aro turning .nit more   coal   and coke than the
market of liritish Columbia can take;
tlint it only requires  300   tons of coke
and   BOO   tons  of   coal   per  day.    To
commence with, the   tonnage   of coke
required   is   4()0   tons per   day.    The
Greenwood   smelter   may   increase to
seven    times    its  present    capacity,
Which will add 20.1 tons in the way of
coke;   the   Granny   smelter   will     at
all events double  its  capacity���which
will mean another 100 tons of coke per
day-anil may increase  its capacity to
five times what it is now ; and at present it is using 111" tons per day.    This
is actually contemplated by the Granby
Consolidated     Mining    &     Smelting
company.    It looks as if   the company
might be able to get enough out of the
ground     u>   supply   the ^present   demands; but what if all the Bmeltersin
the country increase their capacity at
the   above   ratio?   The   Crow's   Nest
people   are absolutely  ignorant as  to
the possibilities   of   this   country   as
an ore producer and a   bmelting   ceu
tre.   It   was this   ignorance  tbat led
them to make contracts   with   United
States smelters   at the time   that   the
Hall Mines  and   Canadian   Smelting
works shut down,   which   is liable to
happen   at   any  time.    They did   not
take the   trouble to find   out whether
the shut-down   of these two   smelters
was only temporary   or to   be of long
standing.    They   had     barely     made
their contract-with the   United States
smelters when the Trail smelter started up again full blast; and   while the
coal company were supplying smelters
to the south with coke   the  Canadian
Smelting woras had to shut down once
or twice on account of non-delivery of
coke.    It will tax the coal company to
the utmost to keep   up  with   the   development   of    this    country.    What
slack can be converted into coke   will
be supplied smelters and cities and the
surplus taken by the Canadian Pacific
railway.    Not   one   pound  of coal  or
coke   should   be allowed to   go out of
the country   until   the coal and   coke
supply for the Kootenays   and Boundary district is assured for fifty   or one
hundred years to come.    Not only has
the railway   been forced to buy steam
coal at Lethbrid^e at  higher   figures,
while the coal company   were supplying the   American   market,   but   the
Greenwood   Bmelter    and   Greenwood
Electric Light company had to borrow
from the railway   company and  were
then forced to get. a supply from Leth-
bridge.    This does   not look as if the
Crow's N*st Coal   company eould supply home   industries.  From Mr. Rogers' own statement it looks as if  they
were working   in   such a manner that
the least accident to their   machinery
or their oven would   put   them out of
the   business     temporarily   and   em-
harass     the     whole     country.    This
means, in other words, that they   are
working   to   their  full capacity   and
have no surplus   to   fall   back on   in
ease of accident.    What   is the use   ol
talking of increased   smelting   facilities   and   refineries when we are  dependent on the Crow's Nest Coal company and cannot get   a sullicient supply for present demands'.' Because it is
absolutely necessary for James J. Hill
and the United States  smelters to get
onr  coal   and coke   is no reasoc why
we should not look   after our  own interests  and   keep   it ourselves, as we
are   more   in   need   of   it.    The only
hardship   the   Crow's  Nest Coal company labor under is the fact that they
are tied down   by   the   agreement   to
supply their coke at a   maximum rate
of 82 per ton when they can get high
er prices from the United States.    But
do they not get a higher   price in   the
home market'.'    Will   Mr.   Rogers  say
something about this?   To   whom   do
they sell in the   Kootenays and in the
Boundary   at   the   prices   they) have
agreed to   sell at, under penalties that
have never   yet   been   enforced by the
government?
The city council ib to be commended
for the promptitude which it display
ed in making an appropriation for the
relief of the sufferers by the recent
disastrous coal mine explosion at

The rapidity with which Canadian
senators are shullling off this mortal
coil is just now the subject of much
comment. The death of Senator Al-
inon at Halifax the other day reduces
the Conservative membership in the
upper house to -IT; and when the vacancy is tilled the Liberals will have
34 in the senate.
T*ie name of Smith Curtis M. P. P.
is mentioned in connection with the
vacancy of leader of the opposition in
the legislature, caused by the resigua
tion of Mr. Joseph Martin. It iB altogether likely that the choice of the
party will fall upon him. and perhaps
no better selection could be made.

The decision of the provincial government to give free grants of land to
the South African volunteers who en-
isted from British Columbia will meet
with general approval and no doubt
the offer will be taken advantage of
by many of the men. Ontario did tbe
same thing; but, strange to say,
there were few applications for the

The foundering of the big mail
steamship Rio de Janeiro outside the
Golden Gate at the entrance to the
harbor of San Francisco is a most extraordinary marine calamity. Such
an accident at such a place could only
bave been due to gross carelessness.
The Rio de Janeiro was a very fine
vessel and ran for years out of San
Francisco to Australia and Oriental
ports. 	
The announcement that tbe British

a stop to the traitorous sentiments
expressed by Laboucherc, Stead and

We note with regret in the report of
the proceedings at the opening of the
House on Thursday, that it is stated
that the lieutenant-governor was in
very feeble health. Sir Henri Joly
is a splendid type of the true gentleman ; and since coming to British Co
lumbia has endeared himself to all
with whom he has come in contact, so
the news that he is ill will cause
very general regret. We hope he may
speedily recover from his indisposition.	
The assembling at Victoria of the
returned South African volunteers has
.esulted in an excellent suggestion
being put forward���that a re-union of
the veterans be made an annual
event, meetings to be held on June
iith, the anniversary of the fall of
Pretoria, at Victoria, Vancouver and
New Westminster, in rotation. The
idea is a very good one, and no doubt
it will be acted upon. Such reunions
would piove very interesting affairs
and do much to cement the growing
good feeling between the island and
the mainland.

THE RETIRED  BURGLAR.
Driven   Away   From   a  Houae   Very
Easily by a Very Small Boy.
"I never was more completely routed
in my life," said the retired burglar,
"than 1 was once by a very small hoy,
tliniiidi he did hate to help him a Iiiiti-
tin horn. Pretty nice sort of a house it
was, and, mussing around, I got into this
small boy's room. I don't know whether
he heiird me in the hall, though 1 don'l
believe lie did, because I'm not ordinarily
a noisy man around the house���thut is,
around other people's houses anyway���
or whether he saw the oue beam of light
I threw into the room for a second from
my lamp, hut I guess it was the light.
"Anyhow, before I'd taken two steps
in that room I heard the teeritickest
blast on a tin born I ever heard, and il
seemed as though It was right within a
foot of my head. I turned my lamp ta
where it cume from, and there, sitting up
in bed and blowing loud enough for a fog
horn, wus a small boy, 10 years maybe,
with his hair standing on end, if any
human being's ever did, but blowing this
horn good and hearty. I suppose tin*
youngster must have been nervous or
wukeful over some celebration that had
come off or that was coming that they
blew horns In, and he had his horn under his pillow and was lying there awake.
He'd read his literature enough to know
what a light from a bullseyc meant in a
bouse at that hour in the night, and
when he saw my light creeping over the
carpet he reached under his pillow and
got that horn and begnn to blow it, scared half to death, but never flinching, and
blowing all the better on that account.
"Well, you know, co'irage nnd nerve
and all that are very necessary parts ol
a man's outfit If he calculates to amount
to anything, but there nre times when,
no mutter how much a man's got of 'em,
he doesn't wunt to unpack 'era nt all,
but just wants to light out un fust us
ho can, and this seemed very clearly tc
be one of those occasions, because II
wouldn't be two minutes beforo the wlioU
neighborhood would be around the bouse,
and I started right away, hearing the
folks on that floor slamming doors open
and making a grand rush for the snitill
boy's room as I went down the front
stairs. His excitement kept him a-blow-
ing a second or two after they came, and
that time was a great help, and then, of
course, it took him a little time to tell
his story, and thnt gave me more time-
enough to get away in.
"But if 1 did get away 1 suppose they
must have luoked ou little Willie as a
hero, and I think mvself that Willie wan
pretty slick."

Webaler Paid Him.
The late George Bnrtle, who was keeper of the great seal in the state department for over half a century, knew Daniel Webster well and had the honor, as
did so many of that great ninn's friends,
of being his creditor, but, more fortunate
thnn many, received back the loan in full.
"Have you any money with you, Bur-
tle?" asked Mr. Webster, at that time
secretary of state, one day abruptly.
"No, sir," promptly replied his clerk,
knowing the idiosyncrasies of his chief.
"Have you got any at home, then?" demanded his chief.
"Yes; a little," responded Bartle cautiously.
"Have you got as much as $100?" queried the great man further.
"Yes, sir." The answer was given re-
luctnntly.
"Then bring it to me at once," ordered
the secretary.
Tlie money was soon in Mr. Webster's
hands and several weeks after, promptly
on demand, was repaid, much to the surprise of the lender, who looked upon it
as gone forever.���New York Tribune.
An Iowa Flah Story.
Here is an Iowa yarn thnt raises the
limit on fish stories: "Wo wet our lines
in Shell Rock river, a few miles below
Cedar Falls, and caught a catfish that
weighed 190 pounds. Being without lisb,
flesh or fowl at the camp, we put a
pole through Its gills and shouldered it
half a mile for dinner. On opening it
we found that It had swallowed a smaller cat that weighed about 15 pounds, so
we said we'd eat the latter for dinner instead of the big fellow, as it was perfectly fresh. But when we opened No. 2
there was a still smaller cat in its gullet,
one that weighed five pounds, and as tho
party consisted of only three we made a
dinner on that. I have abundant witnesses."

Plant br the Indian..
.The Indians regnrd tbe coca with ex-
trrnn. reverence. Von Tucliiuli, the Aus-
triim s.-i.'Utist, who made a most thorough study of the undent customs of the
Incas, says: "During iliviue worship the
���(.rieHtM clm-weil coca leaven, and unless
they wera supplied with th.-m it was believed that tha favor of the gods eould
Dot- be gained. It was also deemed nee-
i��ssary that the aupplicator for divine
grace: should approach the priests with
an 'acullico' in his mouth. It was believed that any business undertaken without
the benediction of coca leaves could not
prosper, and to the shrub itself worship
was rendered. During 1111 Interval of more
than 800 years Christianity has not hecu
able to subdue this deep rooted Idolatry.
tor every where we Uud traces of belief in
the mysterious powers of this plant.
"The excavators in the mines of Cerro
���del -Pasco throw chewed coca upon the
kard reins of metal in the belief thnt it
softens the ore and renders it more eusy
to-work. The Indians even nt the present
time put coca leaves in the mouths of
dead persons in order to secure them a
favorable reception on their entrance into another world, and when a Peruvian
on a journey falls in with a mummy he
with timid reverence presents to it some
coca leaves as his pious offering."
One of the scientific explorers who has
been worKing up iu this region told me
of bis experience with a coca chewer.
"_ man was employed by me," be snid.
"in very laborious digging. During the
gvt days and nights he was in my service he never tasted food and took only
two hours' sleep each night, but at Intervals of two hours and a half or three
hours he repeatedly chewed about half
an ounce of coca leaves and kept an
'acullico' continually in his mouth. I was
constantly beside him, and therefore had
the opportunity of closely observing him.
"The work for which I hnd engaged
-him being finished, he accompanied me
op a two days' journey across the level
(round. Though ob foot, he kept the
pace of my mule and halted only for the
chaccar (chewing). On leaving me he
declared that he would willingly cngnge
himself again for the same amount of
Work and that he would go through it
without food if 1 would but allow bim a
lUfficient supply of coca. The village
priest assured me that this man was 02
fears of age and that he had never
known him to be ill in his life."���Sucre

��� _Tay Gould was noted for turning any
-a*nd every circumstance to his own pe-
cuniary advantage. His connection with
the Erie railroad furnished a brilliant opportunity for him iu this respect, according to a Wall street man of the older generation, whom an incident recently led
into _-reminiscent mood. His own expul-
sion from the company was the opportunity. He made it a basis for an extraordinary, bull movement in the stock. Legal: steps had been taken to oust him,
saya* the authority for the yarn, and the
movement was backed by powerful banking interests in London and able legal and
influential political parties in this country.
At last it became apparent to him that
ke would be turned out. He saw thnt
nothing .could save him. When the situation- .was absolutely hopeless���not before, for Gould was a good fighter���he accepted it with a good grace and immediately set to work to turn it into an opportunity- for profit. Erie was selling low���
20 or. so. -Gould knew that his displacement would be hailed with delight, the
popular opinion being that he was doing
all in his power to wreck the great railroad system for his own benefit. He
,kBewk therefore, that once the property
bad passed into other hands the stock
would boom. Consequently be promptly
.proceeded to quietly accumulate the
stock at the low price for which it then
told.
- -Not before he had gathered into his
hands an immense amount of the depreciated certificates did he cease fighting,
and so valiantly did he fight that many
thought his dethronement was by no
means a-sure thing. Then came his ca-
pitulatlou, and Erie stock, hitherto despised, became the most eagerly sought
after of any on the list. The price advanced, to about 50, and Gould closed his
venture with a1 magnificent profit. Little
wonder that he took so philosophically
that defeat, which the financial writers
ot the time were wont to allude to us tho
most crushing ever suffered by a Wall
street king.
The Conrt Staid by Him.
"The neatest piece of sarcasm I ever
heard from a court was at Madison when
Judge-Garland was on the circuit bench
of this district," remarked a lawyer
While talking to some other people about
laughable thin-'s tbat sometimes happen
Ib a court, '"i.i'wvet Blank of Madison
was arguing the si,!" of a case he repre-
icnted, and after gni-���; along for awhile
Judge Garland remarked: 'I believe the
eoutt la with you. It is with you.' This
was a decision in Blank's favor, but he
-, kept.rlght on with his argument. Pretty
'Delivered tO aflyi.TJOmt W�� the judge said again that the court
was with him, but Blank would not quit
and finished his argument nt some length.
After   he   had   finished   Judge   Garland
���said,.-'In spite of your argument. Mr.
Blank, the court is still with you,' and
then Mr. Blank tumbled."���Sioux Falls

(SPECIAL TO THI: MINER.)
Montreal Feb. 22.���The minister of

Itritain from the reopening of navigation on the St. Lawrence. The contract for the year is nominally from
May 1, and the tenders are to be in
by Marcil. The names of the steamers intended to cany mails, their
speed and the necessary financial estimate are to be submitted.
In view of the application for a
charter for a line from tbe Great
Northern into liritish Columbia, the
C. P. R. have decided to carry out a
number of important improvements
on the C. N. P. branch of their system during the coming summer. Fifteen locomotives have been ordered
for use exclusively on this line, ami a
large amount of rolling stock which
has been ordered is expeoted to be
ready to cope with the traffic about
the 1st of March. It is to meet the
rapidly expanding output from the

(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Ottawa, Feb. 22.���The Dominion
Rifle Association will hold its annual
meeting in the railway committee
room of the house of commons on
Wednesday next. Tlie council in its
annual report is going to bring several matters to the attention of the
government, which naturally looks to
it for suggestions regarding tbe promotion of rifle shooting. Among
other things it will be suggested that
an increased supply of ammunition be
furnished the riflemen, and also
that increased grants be made to rifle
associations. The work which these
organizations are doing iu the direction of cultivating the abilities of
young shots, merits, in the opinion
of the council, a generous treatment
at the hands of the government. The
appointment of an inspector of musketry is also suggested.

���gainst the   prices at   which   supplies
are purchased for government   steamers,    lie mentioned   the steamer Minto, and   said     that   the    government
,. ,knew what the   government  steamers
���J required,   and   that    these     supplies
'ahould be purchased by tender instead
nun  being   given   to   party   heelers at

the case of the new steamer had   been
purchased   bv   Captain    McElhinney,

To tbe Editor:
Sir,���1, as an old Second Contingent,
mounted riflemen, do make an appeal
to you, the citizens of Nelson, in regard to a motion on foot at the pres-
entdate to materialize a smoking concert for >he sole benefit of one of the
supposed Baden-Powell South African
constabulary, i as an old resident of
your city, do not think it a square
deal to me, and the remainder of the
contingent, about to leave here for
South Africa, as we were about to
materialize a smoking concert for the
benefit of all the boys leaving for the
front, and not for an individual. In
an interview with a city official today I learned that in his and the other officials estimation that tbey were
fully entitled to give this individual
a presentation if so desired, but 1
am sorry to say as a soldier of our
Queen and King, that I do not see
where the presentation comes in on
a public smoker as it would not cost
the above mentioned eity officials one
cent. This Ueing my third adventure
to South Africa for Queen, King and
country, I hope the citizens of Nel
son will consider the same as true
blue.    Yours,

MAKE THE CHANGE
Before Ooffee Wrecks You.
"The right man came along one day
when he told me that coffee drinking
was the cause of my gastritis, nervousness, torpid liver, and trembling
bands that interfered with my business, that of mechanical drawing,
but coffee was my only habit and I
loved it so that I did not see how I
could give it up.
If he had not been so enthusiastic
regarding the relief in his case by
leaving off coffee and taking Postum
Food Coffee I could not have mustered
up will power enough to abandon my
favorite beverage.
I left off coffee that day at lunch and
had a cup of Postum. It was made
good and had a rich, dark flavor that
I could not tell from regular coffee.
It p'eased the eye, smell and palate,
so I had it each day at the restaurant
for the noonday lunch, and discovered
a decided improvement In- my ���condition, but it was not uOtil I left off
coffee for breakfast and used Postum
in its place that real relief set in.
Now I am free from gastritis, headaches, and fully appreciate the valuo
of the'nerve ease.' No more trem
bling hands and no more nervous
prostration. I am well, and feel that
I should say to others who are being
poiBoned by a beverage that they <lo
not suspect, 'coffee,' 'Make the
change before the poison works destruction in you.' "

The creditors of the Chapleau mine

TOOK NO ACTION���
The executive of the Mine Owners'
Association met at Rossland on Thursday. Several members were in the
city yesterday but state that no ac
tion was taken in the matter of deter

ARRANGING THE YARDS���
Within a few days the work of
clearing the site^for the new C. P. R.
ship yards at One Mile point will be
finished. Timbers for the ways are
ordered and should be here shortly
When the Valhalla leaves the present
yards, their usefulness will be past,
and no time will be lost in getting into the new quarters.
ALL SATISFACTORY NOW--
The railroad slip at Procter is now
working satisfactorily and trains are
being run in daily. With the barges
making double trips the C. P. R. traffic men have tackled the job of reducing the congested condition of the
yards at Kuskonook and with every
prospect of restoring ordinary conditions in a few days.
PULLED A CHINAMAN���
Sing Chong waB arrested yesterday
by the police on the charge of theft.
It is claimed that Sing stole certain
movables from the city health department's stables. It is thought that
the Chinese colony west of Cottonwood creek ia responsible for the disappearance of several hundred dollars'
worth of blankets and furnishings
from the smallpox hospital.
AUSTRALIAN LACROSSE TEAM���
An impression prevails that the promoters of the All-British Columbia lacrosse team propose to ask tbe provincial government' for $800 to J3000 to
pay the team's expenses. H. H. All-
ingham, the father of the scheme, denies the statement vigorously, stating
that a Small grant only will be asked
to place the tour under government
patronage and to give the project a
start. Alliiigliam adds that if the
Nelson and Rossland men have players they can guarantee there will be
no trouble in having their names considered as candidates for tbe team.
WILL SAIL SOON���
The work of putting the tug Valhalla ship-shape is proceeding rapidly and the craft ib almost ready for
active commission. Since she was
launched some time has been required
to put finishing touches on her upper
works and complete the Installation
of the steering gear and- lighting
plants. These details are about complete and within a few day a the Valhalla will be ready to sail. Captain
Alfred Taylor, of the Ymir, is to have
charge and the steamboat* men are
wondering who will succeed to his old
command.
LAID TO REST���
