their death at the hands of the while

St. Petersburg, March 28.���The newspapers of the city publish pitiable no-
counts of the condition of tho so-called

Samara. In the eastern parts of European Russia, tho efforts of thn Red
Cross Sooiety have staved off the horrors of actual starvation, but the society's funds are almost exhausted and

Alltged Crime Was Aotually

horrible crime. Moore murdered his
five children with a hatchet and knife

been feeling pretty bnd for the past
two or three days. The ohildren were
iu bed asleep I turned the lamp
down and went to bed. I then had
one of my worst spells and my bead
hurt me awfully and everything seemed floating before me and the next
thing I remember after this wns in
trying to get out of the house, I have
a recollection of going through a struggle like a dream that is li ill' remembered. All the' recollection J I have
about this is, that I would rather son
my children dead thau to leav Ihem
in the hands of my wife's people. It
was like a dreum to me that I done
something to the children, but I do

care and going into every point in

There is reason to beliovo that, nu

credentials for and instructions to the

will be ready for submission to tho

the Government of tho United Status
on the question of disarmament nnd
Sir Julian Pauncefote has been advised of his appointment us senior
member of the British delogntion. The
British minister to Tho Hague will
also be a member. M. de Staal, Russian Ambassador to Groat Britain,
will be a leading representative of the
czar at the conference and will bo assisted by Professor Maertens, Professor
of lutsrnationnl law iu the University
of St. Petersburg, and probably by the
Russian Minister to Thu Hague.
Following thn policy which it seoms
likely that ull nations will adopt,
President McKinley will accredit the
Minister of tho United States to the
Netherlands as one of thu American
delegates. Ambassadors White und
Tower will probnbly be tho other members of the American delegation.
It was explained by a diplomat having a knowledge of tho present programme of the Russian Government,
that upon the ussomblage of tho delegates a couiiuiltec will be appointed to

Important results which the officials

In two particulars at least the British Columbia Legislature, in tho sessiou recently closed, has given The
Colonial Goldfields Gazette cause for
hearty commendation. It was decided
to raise a loan of uearlv three millions, and the Minister of Miues has
been given a portfolio all to himself.
These are expected to have a stimulating effeot on the mining industry
of the Province. Let us hope our
contemporary's pleatant anticipation
���will be realised. It is expected, of
course, that much of the loan will be
devoted to thf development of mining
regions that are now in a condition of
stagnation owing to the want of proper transportation facilities. The
Gazette has no doubt of the success of
the loan. The Province, it says, is
one of the most prosperous and progressive iu tho Dominion, and its credit
Stands high. This hardly agrees with
tho claim of Goverumeut supporters
here, who declare that the lute Government ruiund thn public credit.
This is so far from being thu case thai
our London contemporary believes a
three per cent, loan would at least bn
as succfessful at tho present time as
the two and a half loan issued by
the Dominion Government iu ikiiT.
Of the new portfolio it says: "The
decision ot the Government to create
a distinct Department of Mines has
not been arrived at a moment too
soou, for it must bn abundantly evident that tho activity now being displayed in quartz aud placer mining
throughout tho Province is sufficient to
demand the undivided supervision of
oue official. In the past the mining
industry has suffered through lack of
efficient organization, and it is to be
hoped that iu future the Minister of
Miuss will be able to effect reforms in
various directions. The publication of
mouthly statistics should be the first
matter to receive attention, and for tbe
information of capitalists and mining
engineers the Government ought without delay to authorize a ooinplete geological survey of each mining district.

were of the utmost importance iu Ihe
case of the Crow's Nest; they are of
no importance at all in this case.
The incidental advantages loomed big
when the Government found it neces-
ary to make much of them in defence
or justification of their policy ; they
disappear as completely as a mist in
the morning when found inconvenient
in the advocacy of some other policy.
Yet nothing is more certain than
that e-ery incideutal advantage in connection with the building of a Corbin
railway into the Boundary oouutry
will accruo, not to Canada, but to
the United States. It is not pretended
that it is a development road; no one
iB so fatuous as to claim tLat it will
develop or help to develop a siugle
square mile of Canadian territory. It
proposes to cross the line just far
enough to get the ores of that region,
which it will carry off on American
rails, in American cars, manned by
American citizens, to be treated in
American smelters. Tliese wore incidental advantages which it was most
necessary to preserve iu connection
with the Crow's Nest, aud to a Rreat
extent they will be sacrificed if an
American railway be permitted to tap
the Boundary country. We undo to
day what was done at so much coBt
The Duke of Devonshire is taking
oharge of an Education Bill which the
Government hope to put through this
session. Replying to a Manchester
deputation that waited upon him a
few days ago. ha said that the Government had no idea or purpose "of exercising such supervision or control
over secondary education as might tend
to crush out individuality." It is a
pity Canadian Ministers and public

light. Here our education system

There is probably truth in the cabled report that Mr. Chamberlain and
Bir. Goschen take opposite views of
Mr Rhodes's African schemes. From
a Little Englaudnr Mr, Chamberlain
has expanded into an expansionist
of tho first order, while as Chancellor
of the Exchequer Mr. Goschen is
bound to look after the pounds, sin
ngs, and pence. Mr. Rhodes is pi
moling a railway for which he de
niuiids a Government guarantee. A
guarantee involves responsibility, and
Mr. Goschen is true to Ins post in regarding it with suspicion. But iu the
present tamper of the British it is
altogether likely Mr. Rhodes will get
his way, and thn dissension which is
the subjeot of the cable will blow over
and be forgotten in a short time.

(Joining lar West, the Toronto paper
says: '"'When it became evident that

dous development and activity in Brit-
ish Columbia, tbo problem arose how
this development could be helped while
at the Bamo time thn incidental advantage! of it aoorued to older Canada
and not to tho United States." This
was leading up lo thn Glow's Nest
road. The Kootenay had to bo furnished with railway accoiimiodution j
without this its development was im-
posiblo. tint it was also nccessury at
tho same limn to tne that the inci

should not accrue to tho United States

Mr* Gosnell Tells an Interesting Story.
Tort Steele, Moyie, Femie and Oranbrook
are all   PushiHg  Right
There is considerable interest fait in
Kelson regarding East Kootenay. The
Miuer last livening interviewed Mr.
11. 10. Gosnell, who returned on tin*.
S, S. Moyie from a trip over the 0. P.
R, to the Crew's Nest Pass. Mr. (jos-
nrll went us far as Fernie and took
the fltage to Fort Steele enronte,
"There is," he snys, "evidenoe of
p.'ogress on all sides, bat a oertain
amount of uncertainty exists ��t Fort
Steele and Cranbrook, with respeot,
particularly, to railway matters. Tho
gient question auitating the minds
of the residents of both towns jb where
tlm branch to the North Star mine
will leave the miiiu line, and how it
will affect their respective interests
There are several points of departure
inggested, at Oranbrook, at Fort
Steele Junction, and at Wardner. and
as many different routes. The peop'e
at Fort Steele feel quite confident that
it will ro their way 8Dd be extended
to Windermere, and eventually to
Golden, tbe line to the North Star

hope that a line will be built iu from
tho Boundary.
"Just what will he dona nobody
knows, and tbe it keeps a good many
guessing, The line to Windermere is
110 doubt suggested by tbe promising
outlook in that looality from a mining point of visw and the route is certainly a fuvornble one. Tho strikes
there have been unusually good, aud
already people are going in, preparing
for the boom this summer. There is
going to be a good deal of activity
thero. Fort Stoelo nt present is
quiet, but hopeful on acoouut
of its splendid natural Bit-
It is reported that the stsauier
on the Kooteuay from * Bonner's Ferry will not be continued this
summer. At Cranbrook business is
very lively, owing largely to travel
Trains from both ways meot there, and
stay over night and consequently creates a demand for hotel aeoommoda-
tiou every alternate uight, it being
usually very difficult, to seenre rooms.
Building is active. A notable feature
of the travel is the number of com
mercinl men who take in Cranbrook
nnd Fort Steele, It is safe to say thai
no other places In British Columbia
aro so thoroughly canvassed. Fernie
is progressing steadily and promises
to become a permanent, well built
place, with a population qraninouHur-
ale with tlie pay roll. The output
nt the coal mines is steadily increasing, and Mr. Fernie says that within
two years they will be shipping at
the rate of 2,000 tons per day. It has
lieeii decided lo build 250 more coke
nveiis this summer, and the material
is already on Ihe ground.
"The C. P. B. saw mill at Coal
Creek, which is a large and well
equipped establish Went is running
steadily, sawing about 40,000 feet a
day. Fernie has two goi d hotel , and
two only,that beiug the limit of the li-
censes issued, and two churches. A
lockup is being built. Thore are U8
children ot school age and the appropriation of |2000 for a school, not yet
begun,is not considered in anyway adequate for the requirements, Complaints are made of illegal liquor
selling, and the authorities^ are being
appealed to capture the "blind pigs"
which are quite numerous in the old
town. It is understood thnt u Miners
Union will shortly   be formed there.
"There was n heavy fall of snow
mi Sunday night last throughout the
district and now sleighing is good
again. Prior to that all tie snow
had gune, and the roads were breaking
"There is uo doubt" Mr. Gosnell
says "that Kast Kootonay, which has
so long lain dormant, Will during the
next few yi ars experience a very
marked development in common with
the whole of Southern B, O. Already
tlie Crow's Nest road is henvilv
taxed with freight, and it will in all
probability be necessary to double-
truck it within   two   or   three   years
"Some trouble" he says, "is going to

The Pound Keeper's   Berth is Not Always a lied of Roses.
a It has heen frequently remarked that
ninny nf the small boys of Nelson ai"
urn stinlly imiudent, not to say tough,
and an incident which occurred yesterday would certainly seem to boar ont
thnt impression, This time it was
the pound keeper who, iu the exercise
ot his olllcial duties, had a difference
of opinion with two of tho small hoys
aforesaid, in which, it would appear,
he enme off decidedly second best.
It seems that the poundkoeper dis
coveted a cayuse wandering nimleslv
aboul tinar the comer of Ward and
Houston streets, which he promptly
captured, and, putting ii-new ropn
round its neck, was about to lead it off :
to tho City pound. Thereupon a
small hoy appeared  and   claimed  the
norse.    An argument ensued, and   the
urohin, finding   the   offlolal obdurate,
whipped   out a  knife,    cut   Ihe   rope, j
lumped on his   pony, and   endeavored
to make off.
the  peundksspsr    caught him   in I
time, and got him off the horse;
when. In! iu the moment of victory a
second urchin appeared mounted oil a
second cayuse, and whipped up the
oaptured animal aud drove him off in
triumph, leaving the poundkeeper
Willi nothing but a cheeky youngster.
Wheu the collector of wandering
cayusi's and untagged dogs endeavored
to impress upon the boy the enormity
of his offense, nnd tho necessity of his
paying Ibe amount of the pound tine,
the latter, quite, unnbnshed, boasted of
his relationship to a prominent civic
personage, and, advising the pound
keeper not to "Got too foxy," ian off,
and there Ihe incident closed at least
for the time being.

A. H. Kelly, managing director of
the Exchequer Gold Mini ig Oo., has
returned from a visit to the property.
He reports that everything is looking
well. The management intends to put
on two more men next Monday, when
there will he three shifts at work
driving the tunnel
* #   #
At the Ymir mine only 10-stamps
art dropping during the day, aud five
during the night. The reason for
this is a shortage in the water supply.
The weather is showing signs of
breaking now, and the management
anticipates that all tbe 40-stumps will
soon be dropping, there being no shortage of water when the frost breaks

Secured the entire output of the Queen
Bess mine,near Three Forks,for a considerable period, and this ore, which
is a galena, can bo smelted to great
advantage by mixing it with some of
the Silver King ore that carries considerable silver but praotically no copper. The big copper stack will probably bo blown in about May 1st, when
a prolonged run is expected. The
roasters aud the reverberatory'furnnoes
are closed down at present.

The big dam which the Dominion
Mining aud Development Company.
with hoad offices at this city, is putting iu at Cascade City is now Hearing completion, all the hardest work
having beeu done. It is uncertain as
yet when the machinery will bo installed, but the management expects
that ore long everything will be in
working order. When completed the
electric plaut is expected to develop
20,000 horse power.
* ��   #
Kucouragiug     reports   are   received
from the Queen Bess mine near Three
Forks, which is being operated by
the Queen^Bess Proprietory Company.
The mine is shipping at the rate of
000 tons a month, aud the shipments
for the preseut mouth ure expected to
he tho largeBt ever made. The roads
have beon vory good until recently
but they nre becoming afl'ectod by the
soft weather. Unwinding is, however, still feasible.
* *   *
Iu an interview granted tho other
day, the Spokesman-Review quotes
Mr. \V. A Oarlyle, consulting engi
neer for the B. A. .0, us saying: "In
the Le Roi mine, on Iho fiOO-foot
level, un entire new ore chute has been
opened up for a length of 80 feet, showing for that distance a vein of solid
ore 07 feet wide, averaging $-1(1 lo Ijlil)
to the ton und at present the face is
one mass of solid high grade ore. The
discovery of the new chute 800 feet
west of the shaft, adds greatly to the
value of the mine. On tho 7011-foot
level ulso Iheie bus recently been
found a solid chute -l"> feet wide of
high grade ore, und lhe level is opening up magnificently as it is pushed
toward lhe west.
"On the 800-foot level the showing is most favorable, nnd altogether
Ihe mine probably never looked as well
us al present. The present output of
800 tons a duy will he maintained until tho new hoisl is put in the timber
Bhaft from the Hluck Hear tunnel, uf
tor which the mil put will be much increased. ''
e  tt   e
Speaking of the Coliiiuliiu-Koiitonuy
mine. Mr. Curlyle suid: "Since tho
new year, in driving thu No. 4 tunnel, a good chule of ore, one to live
feet wide,carrying values of from $16 to
f80O per toll, has been opened up for a
distance of 200 feet and nt the western
end of this ore chule n rinse litis been
made to tunnel No. 8, HO feet above.
uud this raiso has shown almost a
continuous ore body, two to six feet
wide, that has given daily average
assays of from |:I0 to |60 in gold. It
now looks ns if n line ore chute of llrsl
class ore bud been blocked out* above
Ibis tunnel. Other faces aro in me,
some of which are giving favorable
assays, and Ibis mine now promises to
be a heavy producer. "

Tho phenomenal advance in the
oopper market during the last few
months, nays au exchange, is attracting
general attention, just as the rise in
w bent a year ago excited universal interest, and it is worthy of commeut
that the same class of speculators are
engaged iu the manipulation of tho
copper market ns were interested in
the )/raiu deals. Moreover the causes
which have produced the remarkable
activity iu both caseB are strikingly
similar, and the conditions precluding
the successful continuation indefinitely
of the operations now being conducted
on such a gigantic scale will be found
to be the same lhat interrupted the
course of the during operators who created havoc with the wheat marker.
An unusual demand for copper was
created by the expansion of the electrical industries and other applications
into which the metal entered. This of
itself would have greatly influenced
the market, but the prevailing craze
for trusts and combinations and corners at the tune led manipulators of
industrial securities to invade the
field, with u view of commanding the
market. These operations soon became generally known, and the resell
wus an advance of values nil along the
Hue. The importance of the movement wus exaggerated by the public,
and there was a general rush for copper securities of any kind nnd nil descriptions. Old mines which had
been shut down for yours were reopened und their securities floated,
new compauies were formed and every
means known to the stock manipulator was resorted t.i for the purpose of
producing additional paper for the
speculating public. As a result it is
estimated by conservative experts, that
the market quotation of copper securities traded in at the present timo
represent an advance of at least 75
per cent, upon the highest possible figure which could be secured for all the
properties of this class under the most
favorable conditions in actual com-
meroial operations. The ultimate
result of such inflation of the value of
industrial securities must react upon
the industry generally.
