DANNY BAIN
IS THE HERO
Vies Beat Shamrocks After
a Most Desperate
Game.
Vivid Account of How Winnipeg Won the Stanley
Gup.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Montreal, Jan. 31.���Hurrah for the
West. The hockey players of the
effete east have succumbed to the
Winnipeg bisons ana the Stanley cup,
closed up nicely in a box, will soon be
travelling towards the land of tho
Setting sun. The second and deciding game in the series whicli briugs
about this result was played in the
Arena tonight before an immense audience. The play was of the nerve
racking kind and when time was called with tbe score a tie, one game
apiece,the suspense was simply awful.
Minutes seemed hours to the supporters of the two teams and although defeat did not mean as much to the
Winnipeggers as to the home team,
for they still would have a chance to
pull out in a third game, the strain
was just about as great as on the admirers of the wearers of the green.
There was not a Winnipegger or
ex-resident of tbe Hull's Eye city at
the game who,under the excitement of
tbe last few minutes, would not have
gladly given away a large share of
his earthly possessions just to see the
wearers of the rod put the elusive
gutta percba between the posts, so
anxious were they to see success
crown the efforts of the Victorias?
Their ardent desires were gratided
after five minutes extra play and
everyone was'delighted that the man
who did the trick was Danny Bain,
tbe captain, who has sacrificed so
much for the team. He won the cup
aud match with a dash which did not
differ from scores of others made by
him during the game, except "that it
resulted in winning a goal, the game
and the Stanley cup.
The enthusiastic outburst which
greeted his performance is beyond the
power of pen to describe, naif the
people in the rink sat motionless with
the word disappointment written all
over their countenances,the other half
rose as one man and broke iuto prolonged and frantic cheers. The immediate supporters of the team fell on
one another's necks, but', uulike tbe
prodigal son, did not weep and if they
did, it was tears of joy htat they shed.
Scores of them poured over the sides
of the rink and literally carried the
boys into the dressing room where
they were hugged and mauled.by their
friends in the outbreak of ecstacies
which naturally followed the long
period of high tension.
The game itself was the best seen in
the east this season, and quite as fast
and furious as the best of the Stanley
cup series a year ago. The Bisons
played fifty per cent better than they
did on Tuesday evening, while the
efforts of the Shamrocks were marked
by the courage of despair. Tho
"Pegs" checked heavily from the outset, and the Shamrocks retaliated
with the result that they could not
work their combination in the usual
effective way. On the other hand,
the western men got together better,
and their combination was vastly
superior to that of Tuesday.
As far as the actual play was concerned they should havo won by a
larger score, as the Shamiook defence
men played in great luck during the
first half. There were short periods
of play when every Winnipeg forward would plunk the puck goalward,
but in some miraculous way it would
be prevented from going through. On
the other" hand it is doubtful if
Brown had more than a couple of
shots, to stop in the first half.
The puck never got past the two
Pletts, who played superbly throughout the match. Beddy got the puok
every time it came near him,and Magnus held his body much more effectively than in the first game. He was
a veritable stone wall. On several
occasions when Johnson felt the need
of a little let up, he would drop back
to cover point and Magnus would go
on tbe rush line. This was part of a
preconcerted plan which proved very
effective, for while Flett could bold
his end on the forward line, Johnson
was taking a breathing spell and preparing for further rushes. The forwards all played magnificently but
the honors go to Bain and Cingras,
with Charlie Johnson close behind.
There was no kick coming on the
game Woods put up either, for he
played hard and consistently all
through the game. He is not yet
quite as good as the other three veterans of the forward lino, but another season should make him the peer
of any of them.
It was not till the second half that
Brown got an opportunity to show
the stuff he was made of and then be
played up to his reputation of "Wizard" Brown. He stopped several
shots which would have puzzled any
player, particularly a hard one from
Farrell which went between Flett's
legs.
"BUNCH"   MACKINTOSH KILLED.
Second Son of Hon. C. H. Mackintosh
Fell in South Africa.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Vancouver, Jan. 81.���"Bunch"
Mackintosh, second son of Hon. C.
H. Mackintosh, late lieutenant-governor of the North,-vest Territories,
was killed yesterday in South Africa.
A wire giving the distressing tidings
was received in this city today from
Ottawa, friends of the family getting
word to break the news to the family.
Young Mackintosh enlisted in
Strathcona's Horse in Nelson, when
that famous corps was formed, and
fought his way through tbe whole
arduous campaign in which it took
part. Nothing has been heard from
him lately and his parents were under
the impression that he bad sailed for
home with the rest of the corps, but
apparently he stayed behind.

TJEWET IS ON THE MOVE.
Kitchener Wires Concerning South
African   Operations.
London, Jan. 31.���General Kitchener, telegraphing from Pretoria under
date of today, says: "Dewet's force
crossed the Bloemfontein-Ladybrand
line near Israelpoort, during the
night of January 30. Hamilton's men
at the waterworks were unable to get
in touch with them.
"French with cavalry and mounted
infantry is sweeping the country
east of the Pretoria-Johannesburg
railway between Delagoa Bay aud
Pretoria. He met about 2,500 of the
enemy at Welge valley. The enemy
retired with four killed and nine
wounded. Our casualties were one
killed and seven wounded. Knox
reports that he engaged Dewet's force
south of Welcome, January 29. There
was continuous fighting for some
hours. Five Boers were buried.
They removed many of their casualties in carts. Our casualties were one
officer and one man killed and thirteen wounded."

PARADE NOW
IS ARRANGED
Full List of Those Who Have
Agreed to Take
Part.
Regulations for the Day as
Issued by the Marshal.
Do you want to rent a room or secure boarders? A few words in The
Miner want columu will help you.
The general committee for Saturday's memorial service met again yesterday afternoon to complete the arrangements for the service. Dr. Quin-
lan, marshal in chief of the procession, reported that the local C. P. R.
officials had notified him that the railroad trainmen and steamboat men
running out of Nelson would be represented in the parade as many of
them as would be in the city intending to turn out in uniform. The committee by resolution determined to
place the C. P. R. and other transportation companies' men next to the
board, of trade in the order of parade.
It was announced that instead of
leading the gathering at the recreation grounds in prayer, Rev. Father
Ferland, rector of the church of Mary
Immaculate, would deliver a brief
address eulogistic of the departed sovereign. With this change and tho
substitution of the hymn "Nearer
My God to Thee," for "Days and
Moments Quickly Flying," the programme announced originally will be
adhered to. The military band is
practicing for the occasion and will
lead in the singing.
Saturday's service should, if the
committee's plans aie carried out to
the letter, not occupy more than from
35 to 40 minutes, and it is thought
that this will not be regarded as excessive unless colder weather sets in
or rain should fall. In the latter event
the ceremony will be confined to the
procession aud the public will be invited to participate in one or other of
the memorial services to be held in
various churches on Saturday and
Sunday.
On Saturday morning President
Holt desires the members of the board
of trade who are not turning out
with other organizations to meet at
the board room at 11.15 o'clock. After the members have assembled they
will move to -join the balance of the
procession   at   Fraternity   hall.
A detachment of militia men weie
engaged yesterday in cleaning up
the Maxim gun which is to
be taken in the parade. The gun will
be drawn by a horse led by two members of the company. A nunioer of
militia and regular army and navy
veterans have signified their intention
of joining the procession and these
will be placed in front of the rifle
company.
There are two, and only two, great
financial institutions in the cities of
Nelson and Rossland who are not
draping their places of business out
of respect to the Queen's memory.
One is the Bank of Montreal of Nelson, and the other is Mr. Samuel Sll
verstone,Hebrew pawnbroker of Ross-
and.
AMERICANS  TO PARADE.
The Americans lesident in Nelson
are going to take part in tomorrow's
procession as will be seen from the
subjoined notice:
"United States citizens present in
Nelson on Saturday, February 2, are
requested to meet at tbe office of T. G.
Procter, Baker Street, at 11 a. ni.
sharp, for the purpose of taking part
in the public memorial services for
her late Majesty Queen Victoria.
"RANDOLPH E. FIS1IBURN."
MARSHAL'S INSTRUCION.

lan, marshal of the procession, are as

participating arc requested to be at
Fraternity hall at 11 o'clock to enable

Those who are not present in time
to form with one of the respective
companies are expected to join the
citizens' section of the procession. On
the conclusion of the ceremonies at
the recreation grounds the companies
are at liberty to march back to the
starting point with one of the bands
in attendance or to disperse   at  once.
Each of   the  organizations  taking

BANKS  WILL  CLOSE.
(Special to  The Miner.)
Victoria,   Jan.   31.���The lieutenant-governor    has   issued  a
proclamation making Saturday,
Feb. 2, a legal holiday.
Ottawa, Jan. 31.���The government has isued a proclamation
making Saturuay next a legal
holiday so that the banks will
be able to close. The previous
proclamation did not give them
power to do so.
The result of these proclamations will be that all banks,
stores and places of business
will close tomorrow.
CANNERIES COMBINE.
Japanese   Fishermen   Will   Probably
Be Barred Out  This Year.
(SI'KCIAI. TO THE MINER.)
Vancouver. Jan. 31.���The salmon
canners are busy this week in Vancouver arranging the details of a close
combine which will go into effect
this season. In 1900 there were four
canneries which remained out of the
pool. Anderson's of Westminster and
three English canneries represented
by J. R. Russell, of Vancouver This
year all the canneries are included in
the combine.
Of course the amalgamation is for
the purpose of controlling the price of
snlmon.and regulating the pack. The
fishermen, however, will have something to say regarding these details.
There are now three white unions and
two Indian unions, namely Vancouver, New Westminster, Eburn, Met-
lakatla, and Fort Simpson, the two
last being Indian unions. These five
unions will elect an executive to treat
with the canners when the time
comes. It will be remembered tbat
last year the Japanese came in by
thousands, secured naturalization pa
pers by fraud���they could not fish
without them ��� broke up a strike
among the white fishermen, and down
went the price of salmon. This year
owing to the operation of tho Natal
act, theao Japanese may be compelled
to remain in the United States, where
tbey are wintering, or if they do get
through it is likely that their naturalization papers will be confiscated by
the government, according to the request^ the Trades and Labor Council
of Vancouver.
ATTACK ON JOHANNESBURG.
Johannesburg, Jan. 30.���Four or
five hundred Boers recently invaded
the British patrols, reached Benonia
and attempted to destroy the mines.
Some fighting resulted and the Boors
were beaten off, carrying away most
of their wounded and leaving two
wounded behind them. The British
captured three prisoners. One Briton
was wounded.

OUTRAGES BY
U. S. SOLDIERS
incredible Statements Made
in the Washington
Senate.
The Army Reorganization Bill
Passes Senate Despite
Attacks.
Washington, Jan. 31.���After an
eventful legislative experience beginning with the present session of
congress, and covering about two
months, the bill for the leorganiza-
tion of the army of the United States
passed its last stage in congress and
now goes to the president for his
signature. The final step was taken
in the senate, where by a vote of 35 to
25 the conference report on the bill
was agreed to. The house of representatives already had agreed to the
report. The conference report was
kept before the senate constantly today, even tbe shipping bill giving
way. Opposition to the bill continued
to be vigorously expressed, Mr. Pet-
tigrew and Mr. Teller making extended speeches in criticism of the war department and of the measure in general.
Mr. Pettigrew referred again to
the fact that the senate had refused
to pass his resolutions making inquiry
for the facts concerning the situation
in the Philippines. He asserted his
belief that the full records would show
that the battle of February 4. 1899,
had been ordered from Washington
and he charged that only such facts
were given to the public as would suit
the purpose of the party in power. He
charged that General McArthur's report had been suppressed for partisan
purposes, and that the reports of the
Taft commission were colored on orders from Washington to fit tbe emergency. He asserted that the Filipinos
were not enemies of the United States
and he hoped they would be successful
in their contest for liberty.
"I hope the day will never come,"
he said, "when I shall cease to sympathise witb a, people struggling for
liberty, no matter where they are. "
Mr. Pettigrew introduced and had
read a long letter from Thomas Mas-
card, a military governor of the Philippine islands, in which it was charged that severer torments had been inflicted upon the Filipinos by the
American troops than the Spaniards
had ever been guilty of.
"Robbery, pillage, violation and
murder," the letter said, "are the
first proofs of nrotection we receive
when the American soldiers enter a
Filipino community."
The letter writer characterize! General Otis as the blind instrument of
the ambitious McKinley. Mr. Pettigrew said he would not cite ths letter
if the charges made in it, were not
confirmed by letters from American
soldiers themselves. He believed
these barbarities were practiced by
the Macabees many of whom it was
not intended to enlist. Mr. Pettigrew
presented an article by Sixto which
Mr. Pettigrew said refuted some official literature as to the diversity of
the tribes. Other Filipino documents
were read, which alleged that their
forces when captured were exposed to
extreme torture despite the official
orders that civilized methods of warfare bo pursued. The unalterable purpose of contiuuing the war until liberty was secured was set forth at
length.
Mr. Gallinger inquired as to whether Mr. Pettigrew personally believed
the United States soldiers were guilty
of atrocities and tortures in the Philippines. Mr. Gallinger said that for
one he did not believe that American
soldiers were committing atrocities
anywhere.
Mr. Pettigrew responded that perhaps the New Hampshire senator bad
failed to read the secretary of wai 's
testimony before the military commission that Macabees who murdered
and robbed were being enlisted. Mr.
Tel.Jr (Colorado) rose to state that
United Stntes officers were being disciplined for practising the "water
cure ' on natives. The senator also
had reeeived a oall lately from a man
who came on a party just after he had
inflicted this deplorable torture and
saw the victim covered with blood and
mangled about the moutb.
Senator Teller criticized the course
of the war department in seeking to
discredit those who opposed the army
canteen. After describing the horrors
of the water cure torture, Mr. Teller
said the American flag could down
none too soon if it required such
methods to uphold its authority.
Tbe senator condemned a statement
attributed to General McArthur in
which he is said to have told a returning regiment that one of its chief
services was in engendering a warlike spirit without which no nation
could endure.
Senator Hale here arose to state
that he felt a sense of surprise and
outrage that the commander of the
main portion of the United States
army while engaged in war should be
so possessed with the old world spirit
of military conquest and military ambition as to use tho language attributed to hiiu, and if it proved true
that this language had been used Mr.
Hale said he feared there would be a
terrible reaction from such sentiments.
Senator Teller proceeded to give
instances of the cruelty of the allied
armies in Chiua declaring that it
constituted an impeachment of foreign
looters whose outrages were infinitely
greater than the outrages of the Boxers. Senator Teller characterized
tbe Pnilippine friars as the vilest of
the vile, whose conduct could not
with propriety be referred to openly
in the Senate chamber, and yet the
Philippine commission had put this
obnoxious class in charge of all the
schools of the land

ABOUT ADVERTISING.
We are going to worry you with
just a little bit of shop talk. It's
about advertising. During tbe months
of December and January The Miner
carried in its columns more advertising than was ever carried by any paper in Nelson during tbe same period.
This proves that The Miner is recognized, by those who advertise their
wares, as the best advertising medium in Nelson. A business man
Speaks to tbe community upon which
he relies for support through the paper
that will bring him the quickest and
greatest returns. The business men
of Nelson by their liberal patronage
of the columns of The Miner, leave
no doubt as to their choice of advertising mediums. If you don't advertise in The Miner don't kick because
you don't do any business.
For the past ten days there has been
practically but one absorbing topic
discussed by the public, detailed iD
the news and commented on in the editorial columns of the press in every
part of the world. In the death of
Queen Victoria the empire received a
shook which went tingling to its farthest extremities, and the great event
naturally overshadowed everything.
During the past two days, however,
we have printed telegrams winch
show that our troubles are not over,
and that the empire has still great
questions to grapple with. The negotiations in Pekin have been resumed, and the missionaries, whom many
consider the real cause of the Chinese
troubles, are urging the powers to
mane more stringent tains. But the
most significant telegram of all was a
short cable from South Africa referring to Lord Kitchener's vast preparations as now nearly completed. Today there is an official despatch stating that Dewet is on tbe move, and
also General French, the hero of the
relief of Kimberley. It may be tbat
Kitchener is ready at last, and that
the moment, so long waited for, is at
hand, when the elusive Boer guerrilla
leader will be brought to bay at a
second Paardeburg, and the South
African war stamped out at lust. May
the end come quickly as a good omen
for King Edward's reign.
Appalled she stands, in  voiceless sorrow, grand,

There is a certain breed of politicians who are always ready and anxious to believe that every possible atrocity is being committed by their
countrymen. Tlioy* habitually accept
the wildest statements on the most
meagre and suspicious evidence, and
retail them as gospel, incidentally
getting a good deal of free advertisement for themselves. There are several of them in the imperial parliament, Henry Labouchere and VV. T.
Stead (though the latter is not in tho
house) being specimens. Judging
from the debate on the Army Reorganization bill *n the American senate, a report of which we print today,
the breed seems to be rampant in
Washington also.
The citlzenB of the United States
resident in Nelson are going to take
part officially, so to speak, in the
memorial ceremonies tomorrow. As
will be seen by a notice elsewhcie,
they aro requested to foregather at
Mr. T. G. Procter's office. "lis a
graceful and courteous act on the part
of our American cousins here, and is
in line with the good feeling and sympathy which theii fellow countrymen
have been everywhere showing us during the past few days.

HACK FROM THE WAR.
An Interesting   Letter From   Thomas
Brown.
George H. Neelands has received the
following letter from Thomas Brown,
who went from here to Calgary to enlist in the second contingent. The relies referred to in the letter will be
found in S. Neelands' store window.
The letter, which is dated Montreal,
follows:
I Dear George, etc.,���I arrived homo
with the second contingent. I have
arranged my transportation to stop
over until spring, if necessary. A
short sojourn In civilization will do me
considerable good ns u.y health is
somcivhat impaired hy enteric fever,
which I was unfortunate enough to
contract late In tbe campaign. My
regiment took part in about thirty
engagements always doing their duty
well and earning tho highest praise
from our general olllcers. Gen. Hut-
ton proved himsulf our best friend, always thoughtful of our comfort and
oareful to explain his plan us far as
practicable before going into action.
Still none would rate us half so soundly as he when wo needed it.
The people at home iih a rule know
more of the general operations than
we did although I see on perusnl of
the back papers tbat much that seemed to us vitnl, and the general plan of
French and Mutton's brigades' operations on the west was entirely over
looked by out correspondents. The
British Columbia men all did well
and return safe to their native mountains. At present they are enjoying
thmselves in the east.
1 send a couple of war relics, the
first a Boer pom-pom shell I picked
up after the fight at Witpookt tne
day Borden and Hirch were killed.
The clip of empty Mauser shells I took
from behind an ant hill at Nooitge-
dacht when 0.1 of us stood off two
commandos, two Krupp guns and a
pom-pom with about four hundred
men for three hours. They finally retired losing thirty two men, our casualties eight captured, four wounded
and eleven horses killed. (Put the
empty shells into the spring clip).
Of course it would be impossible to
even give a comprehensive sketch of
our wanderings in a letter, but I hope
some day to disciiBs our travels with
you in Nelson.
I am improving my time while convalescent by doing some extra work at
McGill. Am due to give a paper before the students mining society
shortly. Yours very trulv,
THOS. BROWN.

FOOD IN MEXICO*
American Food, Grape - Nuts,  Replaces
Native Pood.
A gentleman from the Ctiy of Mexico, Paul T. Gadsden,writes that himself and some other members of his
family could not live comfortably on
tbe ordinary food in Mexico, and after using tbe native food for some
months, finally got into a run dowu
and exhausted condition.
He says: "An American feels most
acutely the need in mind and body of
some of the invigorating food he has
been raised on in the States. Several
months ago when I was partieularly
feeling the need of some change in
food, I noticed Grape-Nuts in the
window of one of the large grocery
stores here, and remembering how, in
tbe States, some little nieces and nephews had grown fat and healthy on
it, almost exclusively, I bought two
packages, to see if it succeeded as
���well with grown up people.
"From that day to this it has never
been absent from our table. With us,
the exhaustion and enervation causer1
by this climate and the miserable
diet, has entirely disappeared, and we
are all in most excellent health, vigor
and spirits,"
Some small boys have been stealing
W. Herring's pigeons. He gives notice
tbat the next offender will be handed
over to the police.
The .Minors' union moved yesterday
from their old quarters in the hall at
the corner of Kootenay and Victoria

HOCKEY (1AME A TIE.
Rossland   Cyclones   Declined to   Play
the Match Out.
The Nelson juniors failed to get
away with the Rossland Cyclones last
night, but they played the visitors to
a tie, and were in a good way to win
out had the visiting lads been willing
to continue the game. The game was
well contested and in spots tbe play
was more or less scientific. Generally speaking tbe visitors put up the
best game of the two teams. Their
players appeared, in tho first part of
the game partieularly, to adopt combination tactics more easily than the
homo players, and throughout the visitors lifted the puck in much better
style. The game lasted for an hour
and a half and when time was called
the Cyclones declined to play longer,
alleging that NolHon's action in replacing at half time a player who had
been taken siek,was unfair. The line
up was as follows:
Nelson. Cyclones.
Steve Johns goal .F.Higinbotham
Les  MoBeath.. point Bob Inches
J. McDougal... cover E.Harris
Hi Mel.can... .forwards.., ..I. Dickson
Bert Wallace..  A. Keating
L.  Gilchrist.., ..B. Rowlings
P.   Gilchrist... ..H. Lockhart
Umpires���Ben Chambeis, H. P.
Jones.
Timekeeper���Lance Farewell.
Reforee--R. II. Carley.
On the start tbe Rossland lads put
their combination tactics into practice and rushed Nelson strongly.
This continued for a time until Nelson
got into its swing when the center
of activity was transferred to the other end of the rink. Thus the puck
went from end to end. neither team
shooting effectively, the game degenerating from hockey to a series of
struggles around the :;ypsu "-out
20 minutes after the face-off, Reccing
of Rossland secured a good shot on
the Nelson Haas and scored with the
help of Johns who made a mistake in
clearing his goal. This was the only
game scored in the first half. During
the half Harris, the Rossland captain,
received a cut over the eye, but this
did not quench his ilow of language
which was one of the few objectionable features of the game.
The second half also opened in fa
vor of Rossland, and Keating who was
playing the neatest game on the ice,
added another tally to the visitors'
sscore. The fortunes of war then
changed and the visitors were hard
pressed from this out. Nelson's first
goal was scored by Wallace from - a
scrimmage. Another goal was scored
within two minutes of time, after the
neatest play of the entire game. Wallace took the puck witli a rush from
Nelson territory into Rossland ground
and passed over to McLean at the
quarter mark. McLean had a clean
field and converted the play into a
goal amid applause. This concluded
the game. for.while the visitors were
wrangling over a change in the home
team made at halflime, the timekeepers closed their watches and the Cyclones did not care to play over the
limit.

AN OLD TIMER IN B. C.
William M. llennessy of Spokane is
spending a few days in Nelson renewing old friendships, He is one of
the veterans of the Sloean being best
known as the locator and operator
for some time of the Noble Five
gioup. Since that time Mr. llennessy
has mined in Mexico and in Alaska
with more or less success. He is now
interested in properties on the Midge
creek divide and expects to see that
section come to the front later when
sufficient work has been done to demonstrate tho merit of its mineral resources. The surface showings are
excellent and give every indication of
holding good with depth.

STRIKE ON  SILVER KING.
Captain J. R. Gifford, manager of
the Silver King mine has cabled the
following important message to the
London head office of the Hall Mining
and Smelting company:
"Have discovered a good body ot
pay ore, eight feet in width, No. 0
level east, south vein, crossout. As
says give 16H ounces of silver per ton,
Oro contains eight per cent, of copper."
This is the first official announce
ment of a strike in Nelson's oldest
mine since the resumption of work
last summer and the discovery will
be hailed with a pleasure in this city
almost   equal  to that of the   English
shareholders.
��� ���   ���
SMELTER TO BLOW IN.
Paul Johnson, manager of the B. C.
Copper company, is in the city today.
Mr. Johnson states that his smelter,
the Mother Lode, is complete and will
blow in fourteen days hence. The
company has been delayed from time
to time through difficulty in securing
the prompt delivery of plant, but
the consummation of their labors is
now in sight, and before the end of
the month the Bmelter will be an accomplished fact in every sense. Coupling this with the recent rich strikes
in the Mother Lode mine the B. C.
Copper people seem to be entering on
an era ot prosperity.

color, also his eyes, and he suffered
terribly. His malady was Yellow
Jaundice. He was treated by the
best doctors, but without benefit.
Then he was advised to try Electric
Bitters, the wonderful Stomach and
Liver remedy, and he writes; "After taking two bottles I was wholly
cured." A trial proves its matchless
