r*'-      PROCESSION
Royal Coffin to Be Carried
by Highlanders and
Sailors.
Cowes. Jan. 29.���Duke Albrecht
will represent the King of Wurtem-
berg, at Queen Victoria's funeral.
The Crown Prince Ferdinand of Rou-
mauia is expected in London on
Thursday night. The Orleans family
will be represented by the Duke de
Chartres, younger brother of the late
Count of Paris, the Duke d'Alenoon,
und the Count d'Eu, sons of the late
Duke de Nemours, between whom and
the late Queen,Louis Philippe in 1838,
tried hard to arrange a maniage.
The King's order directing that the
draping of buildings be purple has
created no little consternation. Many
buildings here and in London and
other places are already covered with
black. It will cause no end of expense to make the necessary alterations. In addition, the supply of pur-
pie iB all endy getting short.
The coffin will be borne from Osborne
house by the Queen's Highlanders on
Friday at 1:45 p.m. to a gun carriage.
The household of tbe late Queen, the
royal servants and the tenantry will
be drawn up on the carriage drive.
The Queen's pipers will lead the procession through the King's gate to
Trinity pier. There will be an imposing military display along the
route, massed bands and drummers
playing funeral marches. Behind the
coffin will walk Admiral Sir Michael
Culine-Seymoul (lirst und principal
aide-do-camp to the Queen since 1899),
tbe King, Emperor William, the Duke
of Connaught, Crown Prince Frederick
William of Germuny, the Duke of
York, Prince Henry of Prussia. Prince
Christian of Schleswig-Holstein and
other princes. Then will come Queen
Alexandria, tbe Duchess of York and
other princesses.
Bluejackets will bear the coffin
from the pier to the royal yacht Albert while Admiral Culme-Seymour,
four naval aides-de-camp, and two
ladies-in-wating will accompany tbe
remains. Tbe King, the Queen and
Emperor will accompany the remains
and the other members of the royal
family will embark on board the
royal yacbt Victoria and Albert.
GUARDING THE ROYALTIES.
The Detective Forces of Europe Have
But One Object.
London, Jan. 29 ���The entire detective machinery of the United Kingdom and the continent has been set in
motion to protect the royal personages
and other notable paople now gathering in London. Unwieldy as the continental secret services appear to be,
every effort is being made to unify
them in order that no injury may befall any royal personage attendant upon the obsequies on the late Queen.
Sir Edward Bradford, the energetic
one armed commissioner of police of
the metropolis, has devised elaborate
plans to deal witb the crush expected
on Saturday, but to protect kingly
and princely guests, precautions have
been taken which are illustrated by
the fact that Sir Edward Bradford's
residence is surrounded night and
day by constables in plain clothes and
detectives, and that no person iu allowed to approach unless his card
has been passed  in.
These precautions are applied in the
case of all royal personages and of the
principal officers of the Crown. Scotland Yard maintains the most intimate and secret affiliations with every
detective agency in tbe world and it's
devices for tracing continental suspects are now being operated under
Chief Inspector Frank Freesi, who is
reputed to have a wider acquaintance
with the rogues of the world than any
other police chief in Europe.
Malatesta and other anatchists residing in London assert there is not
the slightest probability of violence,
because England is an asylum for the
persecuted of the continent.
At Cowes detectives are stationed in
large numbers of both sides of the
Medina river inquiring into the antecedents of strangers, and watching
all who approach the royal personages. Nothing definite is feared, but
the government desires that the utmost diligence should be exercised, especially with a view of keeping Emperor William from harm.
LANE OF   BATTLESHIPS.
London, Jan. 29.���For the first time
since his accession, the King's train
today was preceded by a pilot engine.
His Majesty was vociferously cheer
ed on bis way to Marlborough   house.
The privy council has ordered the
Archbishop of Canterbury to prepare
a special form of service in commemoration of the Queen to be used on
Saturday in all churches in the kingdom. The Duke and Duchess of Aostu,
the former is a cousin of the King of
Italy and the latter a* daughter of the
late Count of Paris) will arrive here
on Thursday. Mr. Joseph Chamberlain waB among the King's visitors
today.
London, Jan.30.���Tho war office has
invited the colonial officers and soldiers in England to take part in the
funeral procession. Minute guns will
be fired from all the ships in the Solent and at Cowes commencing when
the Albert leaves Trinity pier. Each
���hip will cease fire immediately as
the end of the procession passes her.
After the procession lias passed, the
battleship" Majestic, the foits and
ships in Portsmouth harbor will commence firing minute guns and continue to do so until the Alberta is
alongside. No standards will be displayed. Ensigns and Union Jacks
will be half masted. The admiral's
flags will be fully hoisted. As the
procession passes each ship, its crew
will present arms and then rest on
reversed arms until the procession has
?-one, the band meanwhile playing
uni-riil inarches.
THE KING'S UTTERANCES.
His Transvaal Proclamation Causes
Much Comment.
London, Jan. 30.���King Edward's
speech to Orown Prince Frederick
William of Germany, investing him
with the insignia of the Order of the
(lartcr.is approved on all sides an furnishing additional proof of the friendly relations between the new monarch
and Emperor William. The morning
papers, however, are almost more interested In tho peculiar wording of
the proclamation of the King by Sir
Alfred Mllner in Pretoria as "supreme lord of nnd over the Trans-
van 1."
The general opinion is thut the use
of such an unusual phrase must have
some significant meaning.
"It Is possible," says the Dally News,
"that tbe government desire to leavu
Naval   Pageant   Will   Be   an   Unique
. . Spectacle.
|| London, Jan. 30.���In Loudon active
preparations are being made all along
the route. Houses are being draped
and seating acoinmodations are being
provided. A-committee of ladies has
obtained peimission to hang wreaths
of evergreens along tbe line, one to be
affixed to each lamp post and all being three feet in diameter and of uniform pattern. Of all the ceremonies
no doubt the naval will be the finest
pageant. The Alberta with the body
will slowly steam along a line of battleships extending eight miles Facing these giantB of the British navy
will be smaller vessels and numerous
foreign battleships. Whatever the
weather may be, the spectaole of the
remains of Victoria traversing a lane
of warship", the guns of all booming,
will be unique.
INSCRIPTION  ON   TnE   COFFIN.
London, Jan. 29.���The following
is the inscription on the coffin of the
Queen: "DepOBitum, SernniHsiuiue,

PRINCE OEOROE HAS MEASLES.
London, Jan. 29.���The malady from
which the Duke of Cornwall und York

and this is the explanation of his
failure to visit Emperor William on
the anniversary of his birthday, and
his ubaence from the ceremony of Investing Crown Prince Frederick William with the insignia of the Order of
the Garter. Sir Francis Laklng, for
many years surgeon to the lute Queen,
is attending him. Duke Johunn Albrecht of Mecklenburg-Schwcrln was

SOME NOTES
OF THE MINES
Work   Will   Start at Once
On the Iron Horse
Group.
Fourth of July Mine Will Soon
Ship���Some Mining
Items.
Mark Manley of Spokane is in the
city today and leaves tomorrow for
Slocan City where he will start work
on the Iron Horse group at once. This
will be an event of considerable importance in the progress of the Ten
Mile creek country as the Iron Horse
is regarded as .meof the most promising prospects on the creek, while the
company formed to operate it is strong
enough to demonstrate its merit.
B'unher work will prove the accur-
racy or otherwise of the theory that
the Enterprise vein extends into the
Iron Horse and if it does the future
of the property is assured. A small
crew only will be employed until
the work advances sufficiently to enable the management to enlarge its
working force to advantage.

R. C. Campbell Johnston of Nelson
has leased the Kelpie group, locally
known aB the Lakeshore and the lessees have commenced work. The property is located on the hill back of New
Denver and crmprises five claims. Considerable work has been done on the
claims, the vein having been opened
in several places. As yet no mineral
has been found in place and it is estimated that the first ore chute will be
encountered some 00 feet further in
on the tunnel which has already
been driven 1(10 feet on the ledge.
The float found In the section is as
rich as any discovered In the   Slocan.
��� ���   ���
Work Is now proceeding steadily at
the Fourth" of July mine on Coffee
creek recently taken over by Vanstona
brothers on a lease and bond. J. L.
Vanstone is In charge of the work as
superintendent. Ore is being rawhid-
ed to the wagon road and within a
couple of weeks, It is probable the
first shipment of the season will be
made. This will aggregate about two
cars and further shipments will be
made during the winter while the
trail holds good.
��  ���  ���
James Fitzgerald, a well known
Ainsworth mining man, left last week
with his family for Oclampo, Mexico,
where be will assume the duties of superintendent of the property recently
bonded to a New York syndicate by
J. C. Beatty of Los Angeles, Cal., who
spent the hummer of 1899 In Nelson.
The Mexican property consists of five
mineral claims the first of which was
staked in 1822 and the balance from
year to year up to 1820. It is a free
milling proposition, gold and silver
values being recoveied In a 30 stamp
mill. The report on the group states
that since location fifty milPons huve
been recovered and that on one claim
alone the water Invel reached. In addition to the dRiiiis the company
owns a townslte, 40,000 ncres of timber nnd all the water rights in the dis-
ti let.
��� ���   ���
M. S. Logan, of Rosslnnd, manng-
Ing director of the Juno company,
spent yesterday on Morning mountain
Inspecting the work lugs on the property. Excellent progress Is being
made with the uialn tunnel. The vein
holds guild and recent unsays nre
rjii 1 te up to the expectations of the
management.

DUNSMUIR'S   NATAL ACT.
Ciroulars have been sent by the Attorney-General's department to the
members of the provincial police containing extracts from the Labor Regulation Act, 1900. The act was framed
with the view of preventing the employment of oriental labor in competition with white, and its provisions
seem stringent. In a word, no person
or company who is carrying on any
construction work or is engaged in
any business by virtue of powers conferred by any act hereafter to be passed, may employ anyone who is unable
to read the act in question in some
European language. Tbe penalty is a
fine of from S10 to 825 payable by the
employer for each man so illegally
employed, and in default 30 days' imprisonment for each offense. Agents
who procure the employment of laborers who cannot pass this test are
equally liable. The act further directly instructs all provincial consta
bles to make any laborer whom he
may suspect pass the test, nnd if it be
successfully passed the constables are
further empowered to give the laborer a certificate stating that the bearer
is eligible for employment undei the
act. In the case of an European who
does not understand English, a sworn
interpreter may be employed for the
purpose of discovering whether or no
he can read the act in his own language. Altogether the act seems
effectually to bar all orientals who
cannot read English from competing
with white labor. The act, however,
does not apply to charters or government contracts given before the passing of tbe act.
This year, for the first time, there
has been sufficient ice in Nelson to enable our hockey players to get a reasonable amount of practice before trying conclusions with the crack Rossland teams. The result wns shown
last night when the Nelson hockey
club down 3d the Rossland Victorius
by five gouls to four, thus winning
the championship of Kootenay. Many
of our hockey enthusiasts come trom
Winnipeg, and they will be doubly delighted this morning, when they sec
that their old town beat the Montreal
Shamrocks by four to three, thus winning the first game of a scries of three
for the championship of Canada, and
consequently of the world.
A telegram will be found elsewhere
announcing that J. S. Carter of Winnipeg has been appointed district passenger agent of the Kootenays, with
headquarters in tbis city. This means
that a now district has been created
for passenger service purposes and
that the affairs of the Kootenays, bo
far as the passenger department is
concerned, will be administered from
Nelson instead of from Vancouver as
formerly. The same bulletin contains
tbo appointment of C. J. Bury to be
superintendent of the Crow's Nest
road, with hcadquurters ut Cranbrook,
vice J. A. Cameron.
TROUBLES IN VENEZUELA.
The Schooner Burned Wns Not British

��� Investigation shows thut the schooner recntly burned by the Venezuelan
gunboat, .Mirundii wus a Venezuelan
vessel and not British. (July vague
rcportB reach here regarding the
events which are transpiring In the
vicinity of Curupnno. Thnt town is
first In the possession of the insurgents und then ugnin occupied by the
government forces. As thiH despatch
is forwurded, the Venezuelan government troops ui-o occupying Ciirupiino
where the French cruiser Huchet re-
inuins ut anchor.
Advices from Barcelona say the
government troops In thut neighborhood urc pursuing the insurgents
very nctively. The dispute between
the Bermudcsc nnd New fork Asphalt
Companies lu still unsettled. The
United States minister, not wishing
to oniise further dllllciiltics for the
Venezuelan government nt this time,
it Is suid, bus not proposed the presentation of un ultiiuulum on thu subject, but United .Stales wur vessels unexpected. The Lancaster Is on her
wav tn I .ii Ouayrn nnd tho Scorpion Is
at (luiriu.
The Venezuelan government has n I
yised   the   Bermuclese company to ap
peal to the Venezuelan courts but the
company refuses to do so, alleging
that the courts are under the influence
of President Castro. . On the other
hand, it is suid the United Suites
minister is making un inquiry into
the dispute and that as soon as it has
been ended attempts to cancel the
concession of the Bermuflese company
will be no longer tolerated.

ASKS FOR INDEMNITY.
Louisiana  Justice   is   Not   Equal  to
the Occasion.
Washington, Jan. 29.���The president today sent a message to congress
renewing his recommendlion of last
session that congress make "gracious
provision for indemnity to the families" of the two victims of the Tullu-
lah, La, lynching, July 20, 18119, who
were subjects of the Italian government. The messuge is accompanied
by a report made by the secretary of
state in which he says:
"On representations made of the
affair by the Italian ambassador ut
this capital, the governor of Louisiana, at the request of tbe secretary of
state, took prompt and active measures with a view of bringing thoguil
ty parties to justice. The matter has
been the subject of careful investigation by the federal government and
has been investigated by three successive grand juries of the parish of Madison with the result thut no indictment has beon found, nor other steps
taken resulting in tbe apprehension
and punishment of the guilty parties,
and notwithstanding the cordial cooperation of the governor of the state
with the federal government in order
to bring them to justice he reports
that he is not prepared to say what
farther steps will be taken."

The award by the arbitrators in the
matter of Beer vs. C. P. 11. arising out
of a dispute as to the valuation of
certain land required by the company
as a right of way for the Balfour extension was taken up recently by the
company. The arbitrators decided
that the land was worth $J."i an acre,
just what the C. P. K. had originally
offered. The expenses of the arbitration were almost 8700.
A man named Callahan was arrested

being committed for trial Callahan
will be brought to Nelson.
A statement has been issued by Dr.
G. A. H. Hall to the employees of the

The statement is of special interest
inasmuch as it shows that tho Ymir

not yet been a death from sickness or
accident. The toial number of patients treated by Dr. Hall was 107 and
the visits for the year   numbered (111).

SUPREME COURT  SITTINGS.
Two Cases  of Special   Interest Which
Will Be Heard.
Among the cases set down during
the last day or so for the approaching
sittings of the supreme court are several of more than ordinary interest.
Among these is that of Fawcctt vs. C.
P. R., which will probably be the
most closely contested case on the
docket. A special jury consisting of
selected members of the grand jury
list has beea summoned for the case
under the provisions of the statute relating to the formation of juries.
The plaintiffs in the suit are the
father and mother of the la.e Allied
P. Fawcett who died here on October
21, 1899,from injuries received at Robson on the previous day. Deceased
was in charge of a train running out
of Nelson and was huit at the Robson
end of his run. The plaintiffs claim
that a defective brake wheel, which
the deceased was required to use in
the performance of his duties, was
the direct cause of the fatal accident.
The plaintiffs ask damages under the
Families' Compensation Act of 820,-
t'00 or, alternatively, damages as compensation under the Employers' Liability Act of 84.MO. Messrs*. Elliot
tit Lennie will conduct the plaintiff's
case with Charles Wilson, Q. C., of
Vancouver, as counsel, while the de-
��� fence will be in the hands of Davis,
I Martin tit McNeil, of Vancouver.
Another ease of special interest is
the mining action of Marino vs. Alexander et al. arising out of the affairs
of the Marion mine at New Denver.
The plaintiff is O. J. Marino and the
defendants are George Alexander,
Florence L. Mclnnes and Alexander
Sproatt, each being the owner of an
undivided quarter interest in the Marion property. It is claimed by the
plaintiff that in October 1898, a copartnership was entered into for the
purpose of developing the Marion and
that he loaned the partnership a total
of 82,038.12 for this purpose. The
stntement of claim filed in the case
sets forth that during the existence of
the partnership a considerable quan
tity of ore was raised from the mine
and shipped by Defendant Sproatt to
the Trail smelter and that the plaintiff has not been able to secure from
his partners an account of the partnership transactions including the proceeds of the ore shipment. The plaintiff further asserts that he acted as
mine foreman for the company during
October and November at a salary of
S.r> per day and that 830.1 is coming to
him on this account. Marino asks for
an accounting, dissolution, a receiver,
judgments for 82,038 and 8205 and
payment of the amount found to be
due him.
WANT A HOLIDAY.
Montreal, Jan. 29.���The bankers are
registering a vigorous protest against
the proclamation inviting all Canadians to observe Saturday as a general
day of mourning. The proclamation
only requests instead of orders, and
according to the Banking Act, the
banks will consequently have to remain open on Saturday. The bankers
desirous of joining in the manifestation of the empire's grief, will endeavor to have the day made a public holiday so as to permit of their   closing.
The high Bchool class at the Central

ARCHITECT'S FOOD.
Orape-Hati Turned  Into Big Buildiogo
The duties of nn architect aro so
multitudinous, looking ufter the
thousand and one delallM required
in the construction of largo buildings, that many of thuin sulfur from
the constant mental application and
require the best of food to keep up
their work. The chief draughtsman
In the office of R, X, Newberry, Architect, at 1227 New York Life llhlg.,
Chlcngo, by name, Henry 0, Ileiigels,
says: "After nine months' constant
application In the preparation of the
necessaiy plans and details for the
largo hotel known as thu Wust Tavern
and the Post Building, at llnttle
Creek, as well as several othur large
institutions, 1 found myself in a very
debilitated nnd dyspeptic condition
nnd unfit for work.
"Instead of medical treatment, 1
used Grape-Nuts food In place of the
usual breakfast cereals. The Hist few
days gave great encouragement, nnd
after a weeks use, quite an appreciable improvement manifested Itself.
Blnoc then, dally use has entirely
restored the digestive functions to
their natural healthy condition and 1
have gained about ono pound per
week. I am now entirely well and
strong again and am able to apply myself to woik with more than usual
vigor. I consider (Irnpc-Nuts a most
valuable food for all brain workers.
The help this food has given me is incalculable."

demand evidence. If further proof were needed to substantiate the claims set
up in support of chirosophy, the fact thnt this science alone reveals tho past in
a man's life would suffice.
