Talk Together-
The Rosslaud N ine Operators do not Accept the Ohange���Intention of
Hall KineB aid L-&B.GG*
The interest, in what is generally
known as the "Kiglit Hour Question,"
is increasing rather than diminishing
as people begin to appreciate the fact
that everyone in Kooteuay, directly or
indirectly, is virtually interested iu
the speedy termination of the dispute.
It is evident now, for information
received yesterday from unexceptionable sources, that Mr. Houuessy of the
Rossluud Miner's Union was rather
disingenuous when he caused it to bo
announced that the miue operators of
Kossland had determined to quietly accept the altered conditions.
The facts, so far as the two chief
companies operating in Rossland, tlie
B. A. 0. and Gooderham-Bluokstook
syndicate, aro concerned, are these:
When the totally unexpected tidings of
tlie new law, coupled with a demand
from the Miner's Union for the
niaintainence of the old scale of wages,
reached Rossland, they fouud Mr. W.
A. Gariyle of tho B. A. 0. in bed with
a broken knee cap. Unable to get
around and not. wishing to aot hastily
in such an important mutter;Mr. Oarlyle gave .irders that for the rest of
the month the company's n.ines
should be worked with eiglit-lu.ur
shifts, at the old wages. The object
of this was to obtain time to consider
tho best plan of action, and in the
meanwhile to see how the new system
figured out. Iu the War Eagle* they
hud been working three eight-hour
shifts for srtme little ��� *-. as 'tlii*-c*
was a certain amount of work which
had to he completed with n a E*peoi
lied time, and the management was
about to revert    to   the old system   t.l
two 10-lionr shifts when this news
came And Mr. Hastings adopted a
similar course to Mr. Carlyle for similar reasons.
It should be distinctly understood,
and The Miner has the best authority
for so stating, that the two large
corporations above mentioned bave not
scqulesoed in the change; they have
but temporarily accepted it, and that
under protest*. As a matter of fact
the mining men of Rossland are now
preparing a memorial on tho subject
which will be seut to Victoria in the
hope of inducing the Government
not to enforce the law. Should the
memorial fail in its onjeot, and should
it be found that the new system is
more expensive, it is the declared intention of both tho above mentioned
companies to shut down their mines
rather than submit to an increase in
the already heavy cost of production.
In tlie meantime the miliars are said
to be straining every nerve in an effort
to accomplish in eight-hours what
they formerly did iu ten, But doubts
are expressed as to whether they will
be able to keep it np.
The busiuess and mining mon of
Nelson are also very much stirred up
m the matter, and yesterday decided
on prompt and combined action. An
impromptu meeting was held yesterday afternoon at wnioh a considerable
number of the leading business men
ami mine operators of this section were
present, and the question was discussed in all its bearing!, Tlie recent
legislation was univeistilly condemned
as inimical to the best Interests of
the Kootenay. It was decided to circulate two petitions, one got up by the
City, and oue by the mining men,
praying the Government not to enforce the oight-honr regulation. The
two petitions are quite distinct and
will ho circulated todav for signatures,
Mayor Neelands, who attended the
meeting, was appointed delegate for
tho City to take the petition to Victoria anrl make all possible representation! to the Government, and Captain
Duncan and J. J. Cumpboll wero given
a similar Commission on behalf of tho
mining meu.
The opportunity may now be taken
to correct a somewhat-misleading statement which appeared in yesterday's
Miner, when it was stated that tin
Hall Miues Company only paid their
miners $3 a day. The fact, of the mat-
tot' is that when a new miner applies
fm- work, he iB first engaged at the
rate of $3 per day; but if he turns out
to bo a competent man he is giveu the
option of working by ccutract. About
76 per cent, of the work at the Hall
Mines is now done by contract, and
the avoiage earnings of tho men working on this system is considerably over
18.60 por day. The management of
tbe Hall Mines intends to go on offering their mon on contract work tho
same price per foot, but has not yet
decided what action to take in regard to the men who ure working for
a daily wage If tho men do not accept*, and the post.of tho unit of work
is thereby lnorea��*j4, -V *-ri".i Mines

Washington, March 31.���The delegates Jfrom the Cuban Assembly.
Messrs. Villalon aud Hevia, called informally at ll*o h I a' i (lepartn.i **,* today and bad a long conversation with
Secretary Hay. The all airs in Cuba
were freely discussed and the delegates
presented the resolution of the Cuban
Assembly. Secretary Hay assured
the delegates that tho United States
Government would not increase the
amount to pay the Cuban army above
the three million dollars already sent
to Cuba. He said this matter could
not be further considered. He also informed them that the President would
not, consent, to nny scheme for raising
money by the Cubau Assembly to pay
the Cuban troops.
Later Beoretary Hay mentioned the
call to President McKinley, and lhe
President informed him that then
would bo uo oilier or further answer
to the delegation than that which had
already been giveu   by the   Secretary.
German Troops Have teen Landed  and
China Fears More  Extended
Operations Shortly
Pelciu, March 31.���Iu consequence of
the recent, attack by natives upon a
German patrol, a small German expedition is being landed at, La Chnu, a
coast town a short distance from
Kitui Chou. Tho presence ot nearly
tbe whole of the German fleet at K11..1
Chou, it, is believed, indicatss the
possibility of extensive operations and
tho Chinese, in consequence, aro seriously alarmed. Tho Tsung Li Yameii,
in order to show its desire to remove
all possible causes of frictiou, has dismissed three magistrates voluntarily,
although tne German Minister, Baron
Von Heyking, bus beeu constantly
pressing'for   their disgrace.
Tbe fearful ravuges of the Yellow
River flood have caused terrible misery
and discontent in the Province of Shan
Tung and the native ollicials have
been unable to maintain order. The
landing of tbe, Germans is intended
to show tho Chinese that if thoy are
unable to control tlie populace, it is
necessary for the foreigners to protect,
themselves. The imprisonment of the
German missionary near the German
sphere of influence, about Kiau Chou,
is dillicnlt to explain, as the place
mentioned is within easy maroh of a
German outpost. The Chinese fear
that the present operations will expand the German administration to
tbe Hundred Islands horo.

dense. At 4 o'clock the Casuat Rocks
suddenly loomed up through the fog
bank and tho steamer almost inimid-
lately afterwards struck amidships.
The captain, seeiug that tlio Stella
was fast sinking, ordered the life-boats
to be launched. His instructions
wore carried out with the utmost
celerity and the women and children
were embarked in the boats. The captain then ordered tho men to look after
A survivor states thut he uud 25
others put oft' trom the Stella in a
small boat. When this boat was a
short distance uwuv from the wreck,
the utiilers of tho Stella burst with a
terrific explosion and the vessel disappeared in tbe sea. Thu last thing tbe
survivors saw was tho figure of the
captain of the Stella standing calmly
ou the bridge and giving his last orders. The captain perished with nis
vessel, tho suction caused by the sinking steamer being   very   great indeed,
Continuing, the survivor referred
to, said:
"The suctiou was so tremendous
that we thought our boat would he
engulfed. I saw five boats and the
collapsible boat, besides our boat, leave
tho wreck They coutaiued altogether
between 50 and" 10(1 passengers. Five
of the boats wero soou lost to view but
we took a boat filled with women in
tow and tho occupants of our bout
took the oars in turn and rowed all
night long until most of us dropped
asleep, thoroughly exhausted.
"We sighted a small boat at0o'clock
in the morniug but the Great Western Railway Company's steamer Lynx,
from Weymouth, had meanwhile hova
in sight. She bore down on us and
took us all ou board. She eventually
landed us at Guernsey."
The Great Western Railway Company's steamer from Southampton
picked up 40 others of the survivors
und landod them at Guernsey. According to the latest, estimates of the officials of the Loudon and Southwestern
Railway Oompany, not more than 70
passengers were drowned out of the
220 on board the Stella when she struck
on the rocks. Other reports, however, place the number of drowned
much higher, The disaster caused
intense excitement*, in the Island of
Guernsey aud here. There were harrowing scenes at the office of tho London and Southwestern Railway at both
places. Many Guernsey families lost,
relatives. Husbands are inquiring
for their wives and wives are askingg
for their husbands. Parents are seeking news of lost children, and children
are looking for missing parents. All
the flags are half-masted at St. Peter
Le Port.
Up to noon toduy 102 passengers had
been accounted for including .1. Par-
ton and wife. Mr. Pnrton is manager
of the Western London office of the
American line. The steamers Vera
and Honfleur are cruising iu the viciu-
ity of the wreck. Later accounts say
that the Stella had 148 passengers on
board and thai her crow numbered 42
Another   steamer   of tho same company which arrived   at   the   Island of
Guernsey     at   noon   reported   having j
passed many bodies 'if   victims of  tho j
disaster ahont   the   Ousuet  Kocks.    A |
survivor of   the   Stella   named   Bush. ]
says the speed of the vessel in lhe   fog ;
was   not   diminished   though   tho fog j
whistles were sounded.  Bush adds that
at 3:30 a. in. the engineer showed him I
in the engine room a dial registering a
speed of   18>3   knots   and     thut    the
vessel struck"within '.'5 minutes   after-
wards.    Bush further  asserts that two
lifeboats were sunk with   the steamer,
Whieh, after  resting  on tho rocks for j
about 15 minutes, split in two and disappeared.
Continuing Bush said: "When the
Stella disupoured 40 or 50 passengers
wero discovered clinging to pieces j
of the wreckage or cabin furnituro
and crying piteously for help. All
the passengers and crew hud been provided with life belts and there was
littlo panic.    I   first   slipped into   the
fe'i^'-i^i'iirVii^" -���-" ~!"^ fho
towed supposedly in the   direction   of
Guernsey, but   seven  hours   later  w
found ourselves   near   thej wreck   and
saw dozens    of    passengers   clinging
to the rooks."
Tha boat in which Bush was a passenger, was afterwards picked up by
the Lynx. The passengers all agree
that perfect order and* discipline prevailed on board. The vessel's entire
company took their stations when the
vessel struck, served out the life belts
and lowered the boats. The scene at
the moment of tho sinking of the
vessel was heartrending. Women
were Screaming and praying and people were clinging to spars and other
wreckage in all directions. Those who
had succeeded in getting into the noats
,had a narrow escape from the suction
of the sinking vessel. The voice of
Captain Rooks from the bridge wns
frequently heard urging the rowers
to pull for tl.eir lives.
The disaster is generally attributed
to tlio high speed at which the steamer
was travelling in the fog. The second mate was the only officer of tho
Stella who was saved. The captain
and other officers, moat of the crew
and many of the passengers of the
Stolia were lost. A boat in charge of
the officer capsized and almost all its
occupants were drowned, A few of
them were packed up by other boats.

Southampton, March 31.���The
steamer Honfleur returned this evening after having made tho circle of
the Casuet Rocks. She picked up two
boats containing women's clothing,
money, jewellry, and an opera glass
case. The last had evidently been
used iu bailing. Many most pathetic
incidents are reported. In several
cases men lifted their wives and children into the boats and then perished
themselves iu their presence. One wife
who was thus bereavod lost her reason.

in blankets.

W. J. Terry Makes the Trip   to Skagway on a Wheel.
Seattle, March 31.���The steamer Oity
of Seattle, which arrived tonight
from Skagway, brings the news of a
$20,000 fire at Dawson, March 9.
The fire started from a defective flue
in a barber shop in the Rosenthal
building, which was destroyed together with the Adoock building.
William J. Terry, who arrived at
Skagwav last Friday with a bicycle
claims to have made the trip from
Dawson on his wheel in a little over
nine days.
Thomas Pawcett, formerly Gold
Commissioner of the Yukon, was a
passenger on the Seattle.
The investigation of the charges of
irregularity against Pawcett hav,,
been completed by Administrator
Ogilvie, and the findings have been
forwarded to Ottawa. Mr. Pawcett is
on his way to Ottawa.
Great  Brithin   aud   the  United   States
Seem   Inclined  to   Accept
the   Proposal.
He Makes a Bitter Attack on the
Laurier Government.
Ottawa, Maroh 81.���In the House
of Commons today Sir Hibbert Tupper, Conservative, made a bitter attack upon the Government for the
manner iu which it hud conducted
things at Washington before the High
Commission. He said thut the Canadian Commissioners were not acquainted with the subjects uuder discussion,
and this allowed the United States
Commissioners to take advantage of
them. It was enough, he exclaimed,
to briug the blush of shame to the faoe
of any Canadian wheu he considered
the position taken by the United States
Commissioners in regard to the Mus-
kan Bouudary. The reason for the
United Stutes taking that attitude,
hesaid, was owing to the speeches t!e-
liv .red by members of the Liberal party
*���*��� ym yo��
Sir Hibbert devoted tho greater
part of a lengthy speech to attacks on
the policy of the Government iu the
Yukon district, in which the Government allowed its agents to terrorize
and rob  tho people.
Kiao Chau, March 31.���Tho population of a village near 1-Tscho-Pu
(I-Chau-Fu). recently attacked with
guns a German officer named Henne-
man, a dragoman named Mootz and
a mining engineer named Verschute,
who were on a peacoful journey to I-
Tscho-Fu. In the fight which ensued
several Chinese were killed aud others
were wounded, but the Germans finally arrived here    safely.
London, March 31.���The news of
the disaster to the Stella spread slowly
through London in the absence of the
usual evening newspapers, it being
Good Friday.
As the afternoon advanced small
groups gathered at the Waterloo station where many painful scenes transpired among the inquirers tor friends
at the railway office. A large orowd
collected to await the arrival of the
train from Southampton at nine this
evening which brought three of the
survivors, Messrs. David King, a Lou
don merchant, Heilbon and Greener,
all of whom were wrapped in great
rugs uud bore evident traceH of their
sufferings. They were immediately
surrounded and anxiously quostiouod.
Ono of them said : "The greater part
of yesterday was exceedingly pleasant
but toward evoning we encountered a
mist which soou developed into a
dense fog. Thero was, however, no
apprehension. Suddenly a great shock j
told us that the Stella had struck the
rocks. Screams rent the air. Tbe
crew behaved splendidly, loworing the
boats with tho greatest promptitude. Every woman was supplied
with a life belt. At first we thought
there would be time for ull the boats
to clear away hut suddenly the boilers
burst with a deafening report, rending
the ship amidships."
Mr. King and two firemen, Osborne
and Barclay, wore the last to leave the
vessel. He had just given up a life
belt to aid a clergyman's wife and
was literally pulled into a boat by tbe
secoud mate, Reynolds, who was instrumental in Baving many lives. The
boat with 22 passengers drifted for 15
hours iu tho intense told and was finally picked up by the great Western
Railway Co.'s. steamer Vera from
Southampton. Mr. King believes that
live boats wero launched. He saw one
upturned with childron clinging to it.
United States Will Employ Natives,
Necessary, to Oarry on a Guerrilla Warfare-
Washington, March 31.���It is said
at the War Department that with the
captuie of Malolos, General Otis will
not make a campaign during the rainy
season, nor is it believed that he will,
at present, chase the Filipinos into
the mountain fastuesses of Luzon. The
officials consider it evident that all
the fight that was in Aguinaldo has
beeu whipped out of him, and it is believed, he cannot hold the Filipino
army together muoh louger. A short
rest will determine whether the Filipinos intend to keep up a guerrilla
warfare aud, if so, a plan is already
maturing to meet any such couditious.
Natives will be employed to light
the guerrillas and the government
can give them better pay and afford
them greater protection than Again
aldo. There is no doubt about the
ability to employ natives in this way.
If there must be guerrilla lighting
during the raiuv soasnn whioh soou
will be upon the Philippines, tho
TJuited Stutes will uot sacrifice its
troops in such warfare wheu the natives can be obtained.
Washington, March 81.���A modus
vivendi for the settlement of the
Samoan troubles has beeu proposed,
and is now under favorable consideration by   the   three   governments   cou-
rued It contemplates the creation
oi a Joint High Commission consisting of one member from each oountry
to pass upon the receut, clash of authority aud resulting disorder, The
proposition, it is understood, was put
forward by Germany und it is the
second oue submitted for a settlement of the entire question.
The first proposition was that the
United States and Great Britain join
with Germany in removing all the
ollicials now serving in Samoa through
whom the troubles had arisen. To
this tbe United States and Great
Britain replied that as their respective officials were not regarded as having acted in the wrong, it could not
be conceded that they should be withdrawn and thus discredited. Now
the new proposition is presented, to
leavo the whole question to High
Commissi* tiers, oue from each Government, the High Commission to
havo supreme authority is reaching a
This would suspend, for the time
being, the authority of the present officials in Samoa so tar as tbe recout
difficulty was concerned, aud leave
the settlement to an entirely uew
body, free from projudice, and with

weight, to irs findings. It would be
temporary in character, not suspending or varying tho Berlin treaty, except for the special purpose und for
that reason would come uuder the
general designation of a modus vivendi. Tlm treaty itself contemplates
this speoial arrangement, as it provides in Section 1,,Article VIII, that
any special amendment may be adopted by the consent of the three powers wilh tho adherence of Samoa.
Up to the present timo uo final acceptance litis been given, either by tbe
United Slates or Great Britain, but in
view of tho troubles reported within
the last few days, all parties seem
much inclined to accept, this affording
at least some prospect of a solution.
This is borne-** out by today's cable, ud-
vices from Berlin referring to the favorable acceptance of the lust proposition. The cable gives uo hint of
the specific proposition, but, it is ou
tho linos above laid dowu.
Berlin, March 3).���The German press
having strongly intimated that Mr.
White and the Americau government
showed bad faith when tbey recently
assured the Gerniau Government that
oonoiliatory instructions had beeu
cabled to Admiral Kautz, Mr. White
has deemed it advisable to denounce
this as a libel and as untrue, adding
that neither the Washington authorities nor he, knew anything of the
Samoan bombardment sooner than the
German Government.
Assassination of   Spaniards   Causes  a

Havana, March 31.���The steamer

exodus is noticeable because of the ,
numbers. There have recently been at j

Commencing next Sunday   The Miner
will be published every Sunday
morning. There will be no Monday
morning paper hereafter.
With the close of March,
gone   out   with   the   most
which has
genial   of
smiles, winter may be said to have
come to an end. It has beeu on the
whole a pleasant and prosperous season. Nelson has nothing to complain
of; there is much for congratulation
and thankfulness. Our population
has continued to increase, and busiuess has beeu good. There is nothing
to indicate that the progress of the
past two or three years is iu danger of
being arrested. Ou the contrary, ull
the signs inspire the strongest belief
that Nelson will continue to grow until it becomes oue of the first of the
commercial and industrial centres of
the   Proviuce.
Ou all sides mining development is
going on apace. Railways are being
eitended. aud in connection with
theui towns are springing np that give
excellent promise of large growth.
The entire Kootenay country and west
to the Pacific is now or soon v. ill be
open to enterprises of all kinds. Tbeie
is every reason to believe that the Slooan will this season experience a most
gratifying revival of activity aud progress. Before another year the rich
resources of the Lardean country will
be made accessible to the enterprises
of the miuer. Look in any direction
we will, and the prospect is oue of
great hopefulness. Development is in
the air. Tho people have confidence
that Southern British Columbia is on
tho threshold of unwonted prosperity,
and that is more than half tbe battle.
And there is another confidence pregnant with even greater promise.
British capitalists are looking and
coming our way. and if nothing untoward should occur to revive their timidity we may expect a rush of investment that will establish mining development on a solid, enduriug   basis.
These are the signs, and they all
count for Nelson's advancement
There nan be uo development in all
this regiou that will not have its beneficial iufiueiK-e on this City, Our
citizens feel this and an inspired by
it. Tho natural effect is to induce
them to prepare for tbe general prosperity, in order that each may get his
"hare of it. The town was uever
more confident or active than it is today. Perhaps there is uo better indication of the conditions of a community than the advertising columns of its
newspapers. A reference to these will
show that the business men of Nelson
are alive to the times, and have the
sagacity to make the most of them.
Let the development in the regions
contributory to this City be what it
will, our business men are prepared to
cop.< with it. That iu itself is a
healthy and most gratifying condition.
Building Improvements are most active, yet they cannot keep abreast of
the demand. There are no empty
houses, and new ones are snapped up
even before completed. That is another healthy sign, for it means that
Nelsou is fust gathering to itself a
large population. The outlook is
more than hopeful, and if only true to
ourselves a splendid future is assured
to us.
Company and in rivalry with it, hence
its campaign of abuse against that corporation With this explanation,
we quote from The Globe: "The*
Miner's position will be better under-
Stood when wo explain that Mr. '
Heinze is suing the O. P. R. Co. for
a large amount in connection witli the
recent purchase of his interests; that
he is one of, if not the lending spirit
in the smelting combine recently or-
ganized in the United States, which is
in dea liy opposition to the smelter at !
Trail; and that Mr. Heinze is associated with Mr. Corbin and others in
securing a charter to tap the Bound
ury country, in opposition to the O.
P. R. No oue, therefore, need be surprised at what The Miner may suy in
opposition to ihat or any othei Canadian institution which may stand in
the way of Mr. llcinze's designs in
this country. The truth of the matter
is, The Rossland Miner, an excellent
paper in many ways, is simply the
agent and mouthpiece of men, who, a
capitalists, monopolists, and aliens,
are endeavoring to exploit the riches
of British Columbia in their own interests It exists in Rossland for that
purpose and no other. As a bright
newsv newspaper, backed up by
American capital aud brains, it has
outside of Rosslaud and vicinity a
certain influence, being wrongly
supposed to represent the views of
that important district, and is therefore all the more dangerous. We want
tbo public, however, to understand the
real facts of the ease. Mr. Heinze,
as head of the great smelter combine,
is doing bis best to crush the* smelting
industry in_ British Columbia, and as
a partner of Mr. Corbin, for a -similar
end in view, is endeavoring to secure
a charter for a railway zig-zogging
the international boundary in order to
tap here and there the mines of Southern Vale and divert the ores, which
should be smelted ill British Colombia, to the United States. The Rossland Miner's denunciation of the C.
P. R. as a monopoly and an octopus is
no more than Mr Heinze's plan of
campaign���part of au organized conspiracy���to enrich himself and his  as

I'lie sorely tried patience, of Iho tin-
|r]i*r nniy huvo n fitting reword duriug
the Easter holidays. The last two or
three niRhtfl have been comparatively
warm. However bright uud vnrin
the miil-day sun may he, tho trout
will not rise readily until tho frosty
nights abate Like the hunter, the
angler weloomes "a southerly wind
and a cloudy slty" provided the wind
be not too strong; for on Kooteuay
Lako a stiff breeze is somewhat dis-
00n*��erting to the average   eanoist.    It
is no uncommon sight to sen  a  canoe
ou a squally day behaving like a disorderly weathercock. There are days
too when the larger craft need a measure of skill in their management,
days on which tho pious Aeneas���ere
ho had shuffled off this mortal coil
might have been attempted to address
Ins helmsman, Palinurus, in less
dignified strains than those which Virgil has attributed to him. But the
pious one and hiB biographer havo
now but the Styx wherein to angle,
���with the worm that dielh not, and
bis unblemished name is handed down
posterity without the record of one
single "big, big D" having been uttered by linn ; A worthy und fitting
example to every Nelsonian, tho angling fraternity in particular.
Kut to return to our muttons given
a continuation of warm nights and
sunny days, the Easter anglers should
return homo with more in their baskets than empty Husks and depleted
tobacco pouches. Th? fly should be
the cause of a decrease in the trout
population of Kooteuay; the trolling
enthusiast may buoy his hone with
the inemoiy that th* eutrepid, indescribable, finny monster, which last
season was reported in The Miner us
having seized, more than once too, the
trout which some undoubtedly vera
cious angler was in the act of lauding, giving that abglsi a rare tustle
tor some minutes before the prey was
relinquished, bus yet to be finally lured
to his doom.
* *   *
Last Sunday though the night was
cold and the wind in the morning bitter, several hardy anglers Hallied
forth 111 quest of saluio-purpuratus.
Two boats contained "early birds,"
and they had the pleasure of breaking
through tho ice opposite Squires' Point,
thus cleaving a way for tbeir more indolent followers. The foremost boat
"made it" but, the second boat was
warned by an individual on the bank
that it wus impossible to get through
the ice. Not wishing to share the fate
of Franklin, the second boat bout an
honorable retreat, and sought a brief
solace in the calm but to them unprofitable water opposite the town. They
hoped, but iu vain, that should the
first beat's crew reach tho happy fishing ground below Urohman 'Jreek and
have any BUOOOSS with the trout, the
ice would enclose the said first boat's
orew on (heir return journey, would
hold them prisoners there until the
crack of doom and so effectually prevent the disconcerting reports of their
superior success to be bruited throughout the lov.'ii. But "rh"inm�� propose
mais Dieu dispose;" the second boat's
crew, after a few frnillii-s casts, returned home at noon; and the first
bout's crew came home iu the dusk
with four nice trout, an unholy thirst,
and an irritating attitude of intense
superiority, A youthful occupant, of
that second bout, who had made sure
of his "man" drawing first, blood, is
looking for that individual who
warned tliein not to venture to cross the
belt of ice. These four fish aie believed to be tho first taken with the fly
this season. They were of goodly proportions and if laid in a line, would
havo been nearly equal in length lo
that of their capturer. A doctor was
seen to take a large char on the troll,
but the bait was not particularised,
possibly it was a special asceptic preparation of his own.
* *   *
Now is the time for the angler to
make ready his stock of tackle for the
season, The Nelson stores oiler a great
variety iu this line some good, some
indifferent and some undeniably bnd.
As a rule, the store Hies are apt to bn
too large, too gaudy, and tho wings
are unduly large for tho size of the
hooks. The wing of ally should not exceed the length of the hook more than
an eighth of an inch; they should,
foi wet, flv fishng, lie flat ovor the
hook, be dressed with soft feathers
and not be too heavy. It is strange
that the almost obsolete flies dressed
on the gut should be universally sold
here. In the old country und in the
Eastern States, eyed hooks are almosl
always used. The advantages of the
latter are undeniable ; the fly can
be more expeditiously changed when
dressed on an eyed hook, (he gut when
cracked or frayed at tho head (where
it always first givis signals Of distress)
can be easily renewed on an eyed honk,
whereas till) fly dressed on the gut
would be worthless whim once the gut
is destroyed,
The new bronzed hooks now iu
vogue in tlio old oouutry are far
stronger than the old blank or blue
honks, Before purchasing a fly the
hook should be tested in the sumo way
as a careful fly dresser should always
test his hooks'. The point would be
fixed into a piece of softwood then the
honk should be bent upwards. If the
metal is too brittle the hook will break
it too pliable it will bend. This simple process will save much disappointment, und many wholly uiiuoe.oHsary
words. Gut should be round and
opaque; milky colored, Hat gut is
Worthless. A large stock of tackle is
unnecessary bnt good for trade; if
you have a friend who ties his own
Hies borrow or "lake by mistake"
his liy box and help yourself, for locally
fled flics seem to appeal more lo the
front's uppetite than (he trade articles. On tl.e choice of rods more
and a host of disciples nt Isaac. Walton were nut after the elusive trout,
If was t**o cold, however, for big
baskets and, strange In say, almosl
every fisherman admitted that he had
caught nothing.

they should he, anil therefore the gro-

Athabasca Mine.

Blow.���Operated  bj One Han-
Some Mining Item..
A novel machine is now beiug tried
for tbe first tinib iu tbe history of
British Columbia milling at tbe Athabasca uiiuH. It is called tbe Elmore
Hand-power rock drill, and is a Chi-
cagnnn's invention. Tbe machine is
operated by one uiau, and uses any
kind of ordinary drill steel, which is
pounded by an ordinary miner's hammer. Tbe inventors claim that it has
au automatic feed, and the drill makes
a perfect turu after every blow. The
hammer ia governed by a removable
spring, uud the strength of t-ie blow
given varies with the strength of the
spring. The strength of the blow cau
ne varied, as stated above, from 100 to
550 pounds, so a uniform rate of speed
oan be maintained irrespective of the
hardness of the rock. It may be
mentioned that the -weight of au ordinary man's blow is estimated at SO
pounds. The power it developed by
a very clever system of levers.
The machine is worked on a stretch-
bar, placed across the tuuuel or shaft
as the case may be, and is operated
by au adjustable lever, it being so
contrived that a hole cau be driven
iu any direction. When put up ready
for shipment the whole concern
weighs 1(55 pounds, and oan be readily packed ou a horse. It bus already
been tried   in Mexico with success.
Messrs. W. C. Hepburn and A. D,
Sykes. who are sole agents for 13. 0.,
have taken a contract at the Athabasca, and, if it is a success there, several mines in the vicinity have promised to give it a trial. The great advantage claimed for it is, that, while
it does not supersede labor, it greatly
lessens the cost of mining.
Mr. Reynolds, tbt representative of
the Eastern syndicate which has bonded the Yellowston* mine near Salmo
for $50,000,is staying in N'elson the
guest of Judge Forin. Mr. Reynolds
quite recently visited the mine, aud as
there is a heavy payment due on April
0,aud mafliinery is now beiug shipped
to the mine, a Miner reporter yesterday enquired of Mr. Reynolds whether
it had been defnitely decided to take
up the bond.
"I am uot in a position to say MC-
actly what plan of action will be
adopted with regard to the mine," replied Mr. Reynolds, "as everything is
not settled yet. But ynu may say that
I visited the mine, aud was very well
pleased   wifh what I saw. "
Beyond this guarded statement, Mr.
Reynolds would not go, through to
the outsider the probability of the
Yellowstone soou being added to^ the
list of producing miues seems veiy
Rossland, B. O., March ill. ���Superintendent Morris of the Velvet was in
from Sophie Mountain today aud reports tbat the ledge in the south crosscut has wideued out to nearly 80 feet.
This, with the other development,
gives the Velvet ample stoping ground
to commence shipments were it prr
vided with shipping facilities in the
way of a spur from the Red Mountaii
Railway, a distance of sii miles. It
proves the Velvet to be a mine. The
Velvet is operated by the New Gold-
fields of British Columbia, of which
Sir Charles Tupper is the leading
Tbe Evening Star has ' sent two carloads of ore to the Trail Smelter.
There are some 16 carloads ou tbe
dump at the miue aud us soou as the
road is iu a more satisfactory condition this  will bo   sent to the smelter.
It is expected that   the   smelter   returns will show   that  the ore ruus be
tweeu f-J.j and ��10 per tou.
��   #   *
Northport, March 81.���After being
shut down for over two months the lie
Roi smelter was started tip. At exactly 1 o'clock p, in. yesterday blast
furnace No. 1 was blown iu, a big
crowd being present This is good
uewB hero, the long shut down working considerable hardship on] the men
employed. Must of the old employes
of tba company are here, however,
BOd will resume their old pssitioiis.
Furnacu No. 2 will be running by
the end of this week, at which time
the plant will be run at full capacity.
Daily shipments are being made, and
this, with tho ore already on baud and
roasted, guarantees a steady rnu for
some months to come.
