oi an enterprising and deeply loyal

with the utmost order and a total absence of the wearisome delays and oth ���
er features which frequently mar public ceremonies of a similar nature.

witnessed and participated in the ceremony.
The procession   at   11:30  came  off
punctually,   it was   arranged   in   excellent order and was the  most interesting feature of the day.    The  mem
bers  of   he various   fraternities par
ticlpatlng were at their  headquarters

'When the procession  moved off  the
band  swung into the opening bars of
tbe Dead March from   Saul,   and   tbe
entire parade moved at a slow march.
The scene was indeed  striking as   the
long line of marching men crept slowly up Baker street   between sidewalks
crowded  by  spectators.     On   leaving
Baker street a faster step   was  taken
until   tbe  main    thoroughfare    was
reached    again.      The      militiamen
marched well with arms reversed.    In
front  of   the   company, in the  place
of honor of the   entire   parade,   were
tbe men who had borne arms at home
and abroad in defence of   the   Queen.
This party included H. E.   Croasdaile,
late  lieutenant  Her Majesty's Navy;
W. W. West, late   H.   M. Navy,   and
Halifax regiment for Red River  expedition ;   Sergeant   Major    Luscombc,
late Twentieth infantry and Fifteenth
Argyle  Infantry, two   medals for service in  Crimea   and   Indian   Mutiny
medal with clasp; John   Rodway, Alberta Mounted   Rifles,   Northwest rebellion; Norman   D. Stewart,   Fifty-
first Stonewall rifles in   Fenian   raid ;
tiergeant-Major   W.    S. Volme,   First
Ontario Rifles, first Red River expedition; Peter   Bruce,'  Imperial service,
medal  for  Soudan campaign;   J.   H.
Ellis, Eighteenth Hussars;   S. C. Sut-
oliffe,   Twenty-fourth   regiment,   Indian Mutiny; Thomas   Kinehan,   Second Hampsbires, Afghan   medal  with
two clasps and good conduct medal.
The American citizens turned out
in good strength and were headed by
a standard bearer earrying the Stars
and Stripes furled and tied with
crape. Randolph E. Fishburn, late
lieutenant U. 8. engincesr, headed the
Americans  in   line.   Tbe uniformed
At the recreation grounds a pint-
form sixteen feet square had been
erected in front of the baseball back
stop. On this the officiating clergymen together with the mayor and
council took their positions. The
militiamen were drawn up immediately in front of tbe platform with
the B. M. R. band to the right and
the Salvation Army band on the left.
The balance of the organizations and
citizens in line were massed behind
the rifle company with the marshals
in the rear and citizens to the sides
and in the grandstands. An estimate
of tbe number of people assembled
placed the aggregate at not less than
Tbe proceedings opened with the
hymn "Nearer My God to Thee." an
nounced by Rev. J. Burtt Morgan.
Tbe Salvation Army band lead the
singing and the gathering took up tbe
familiar air with spirit.
Rev. Father Ferland followed in
tbe only address of the day. The reverend gentleman's remarks were brief
as the occasion demanded, but his
words rang with genuine patriotism
and made a deep impression. He said:
"Fellow Citiens:
"We are met here today to pay a
tribute not of gold, not of compulsory
service, military or otherwise; but to
make tbe freest of all gifts, to pay
tbe tribute of our tears for the death
of a noble and beloved Queen. Conceived in gratitude and in love this
sad and solemn demonstration is both
Btting and proper. Eighty-one years
of unsullied life, sixty-three of a just
and wise reign deserve recognition at
the hands not only of one people, but
of all civilized nations. It is not
strange therefore, that the grief caused by the death of good Queen Victoria be so widespread,
"There may have been in the past
sorrows more intense, but history
does not record one so universal. It
is a mourning not only of tbe Anglo-
Saxon race, but of the Teutonic and
Latin alike. There is sorrow deep and
sincere not only among the followers
of the Reformation, but also as well
among those who still adhere to the
chair of St. Peter.
"We had thought, because in this
case certainly tbe wish is father to
the thought, that our lamented sovereign was almost immortal, and we
wonder in our affliction how inexorable are the laws of death. We would
in our attachment recall again to
life our beloved Queen, to surround
her once more with our devotion and
love, but that is impossible. How
beautiful then, must Heaven be,
and how great the weight that presses
on tbe grave, since the one can keep
captive the soul, and the other the
body of a ruler loved by so many millions. But jinoe we cannot change
tbe laws of Nature, we bow in resignation and sorrow to the will of the
only Ruler Who reigns forever, but
we will always cherish the memory
of our noble, beloved and lamented
good Queen Victoria."
At the conclusion of the address,
Rev. H. S. Akehurst, rector of St.
Saviour's church, who wore full canonicals, read the beautiful burial ser
vice of tbe Church
solemn   sentences
touching   prayer   in    the    following
"Almighty God, Thou art the Supremo Ruler and the final judge of
men. We come before Thee in the
hour of National bereavement, sorrowing for the death of our beloved
Queen whom in the fullness of her
days, Thou hast taken to Thyself.
We mourn for one who was more to
us than a sovereign, but was even aB
a Mother to her people. And yet in
our grief there is no bitterness. Our
hearts are rather full of solemn
thankfulness. We thank Thee for
the pure and beautiful life just ended.
We are glad that for so many years
Britain's greatest glory lias been the
unsullied life and consecrated womanhood of Britain's Queen. May that
life be for many a year and example
and inspiration to the millions of
her subjects. We are very grateful
for the heartfelt sympathy so freely
extended to us by all oivilized nations, and especially by our nearest
kindred. It bas comforted us in our
"O Lord, remember our Empire in
Thine infinite meroy. May thi throne
be established in righteousness. We
entreat Thy blessing and protection
for our beloved soveielgn. With full
hearts we pray, 'God Save the
"And now, O Lord, we commit ourselves into Thy gracious keeping,
praying that when this life is past
Thou wilt receive us each into the
everlasting kingdom of our Lord and
Saviour Jesus Christ.   Amen."
The hymn, "Rock of Ages," followed, Rev. Will'am Monroe, pastor
of the Congregational church making
the announcement. Adjutant Gill
then announced the National Anthem. The grand old air was taken
up with a gusto which spoke volumes
for the patriotism of the crowd, the
male members of which uncovered
almost to a man. The fact that it
was the first occasion on which th^
new wording in which the King's
name is substituted for that of tbe
late Queen, was used in Nelson, made
the rendition doubly interesting.
While .the, number was sung, the militiamen and members of the uniformed rank, K. of P. came to the salute.
This closed the programme and the
procession reformed for the return to
Fraternity hall where the parade w,as
Almost without exception the stores
and business houses throughout the
city closed out of respect for the occasion. Toward evening some of the
business houses handling necessaries
reopened for the convenience of their
customers. The general committee
and others having the arrangements
in hand are to be congratulated on
the success which attended the day's
programme in every detail.
The   Sons   of England Benefit Society, Lodge, Nelson's Queen,   No  241,
assembled at Fraternity   hall   to take
part   in   the  public ceremony of  the
memorial   service   to   our    lamented
Queen, and   while   tbeir   ranks   were
considerably   depleted, owing   to   the
fact that many of its members marched with tbe Rocky  Mountain Rangers
and several   with   other societies, yet
they  made   a   goodly   parade,   oeing
marshalled   by Bro.   E.   McLeod   aud
led by Bro. John    Watson,   with   the
flag of their ledge draped   and lowered. Their ohief parade, however, was
made to St.   Saviour's church  in   the
afternoon.   They   assembled   in   full
force in the schoolroom   adjoining the
church at 2:45 p. m., and   led by Bro.
Rev.   H.   S.   Akehurst,   in   bis vestments, filed   into   the   church   as tbe
Dead March in Saul was played by tbe
organist.    At   the   conclusion of   tbis
sad voluntary, a most imposing   ceremony was performed, that of saluting
the   flag.    This   was   carried   out   by
Bro. Phillips attended  by a guard  on
either   side,   namely   Lieut. U.   Beer
and Sergt.-Major Steel, and   supported by the president of the  lodge, Bro.
T.    Morley.    The   lowered     flag   was
raised and inclined   first   to   the   left
then  to   the   right,  again raised and
supported while all stood at attention.
After   this   the   service   began   with
hymn   399,   "When   Our   Heads    are
Bowed witb Woe, " then the first part

for His Sympathies With
Berlin, Feb. 2.���Excepting a few
Liberal papers like the Vossische
Zeltung and tbe Tageblatt, the German press has in no way received the
advances of the British press this
week graciously. Nine-tenths of the
press persist lu pretending that the
German Emperor's visit was a mere
matter of filial piety, and that tbe
honors mutually conferred there were
solely meaningless civilities in no
wise touching or influencing the sen-
tments of the two nations towards
each other nor reconciling their conflicting interests.
While for a couple of days after the
Queen's death, even the Anglophobe
press kept a truce, during the last
half of the week the press organs
speak out openly upon the. subjeot of
Anglo-German relations as existing
upon Ring Edward's accession. Tbe
Berlin Neueste Nachrichten today
prints an editorial rather friendly towards England, but points out the
enormous difficulties i f an entente between the two countries and demands
that England must once and for all
drop her old superciliousness and recognize Germany as her full equal.
Only thus could an understanding be
at all maintained.
The Lelpsic Neueste Nachrichten
and the Hamburger Nachrichten print
articles severely blaming the Emperor
for his prolonged stay in England,
the latter saying: 'That the Emperor's English sympathies collide with
his duties as German   Emperor."
The Cologne Volks Zeitung claims
that ic is a bold fight between tbe
pi- -Russian and pro-British parties in
Gernijiy, while the correct thing
would be to preserve good relations
towards both. The semi-official
press during the week bas been rigidly silent and is evidently awaiting the
Emperor's return and intimation.
Every German paper that has in any
way referred to Anglo-German relai
tions has scouted tbe idea of an Anglo-German alliance.

there Is another great alliance hatching which will carry the community

Pacific, and in practically the same
way the New York Central and Pennsylvania have joined hands, thereby
ending for all time the chances of
rate disputes between the two companies.

Description of  the  Chapel.
The Procession.
Buffalo, Feb. 2.���The beautiful and
impressive memorial service whicli
was held this afternoon in St. Paul's
church bespoke eloquently the Iov*
that the late Queen of Great Britain
inspired in the hearts of all who had
ever been her subjects, the esteem
wbich was cherished for ber by persons who, though being citizens of a
country of different institutions, had
recognized her as a woman of great,
power, of great capacity and great
virtues. A more impressive service
has not been  conducted   in   this  city
London,     Feb.      2.���Tonight    the
Queen's body lies in the Albert chapel
at   Windsor,       guarded      faithfully,
awaiting the last rites.    Within,   the
castle   is   brilliantly   lighted.    Three
kings and beads of principalities with
special   representatives   left   Windsor
this evening   after   lunching   at   the
castle.    It   was   at Windsor that   the
only   hitches  In   the   elaborate   programme   of   the   day   occurred,   and
these added   to rather than   detracted
from the   dramatlo   and   pathetic interest.    The   first   and most   striking
was the   utter   Intractability   of   the
horses   attached   to the gun   carriage
bearing   the  coflin.    The   alarm   and
chagrin   of   the   King and   Emperor,
who had hurried   up to   ascertain the
cause of delay in the procession   leaving Windsor station, was patent upon
their countenances.    The horses struggled in the traces and the   coffin   was
nlmost thrown from the gun carriage.
Lord   Roberts   asked   the   King    for
permission to take out the horses and
substitute   for   them   ".lackics"   who
had come   up   from Portsmouth  as   a
guard of h��mor.    This suggestion was
quickly sanctioned, and the   last time
Victoria's body was borne before   her
subjects   was   by   hei   royal   "handymen," who at an   opportune   moment
saved the situation.    The other   hitch
occurred during   the religious part of
the ceremony.    The   trembling   voice
of the Archbishop of Canterbury, whu
is   almost   blind, had   scarcely   ended
the final benediction before he turned
to go   up the   alter steps.    Ills   sight
and strength failed him, and   he   tottered and groped and was on the point
of   falling,   when   the Arcboishop  of
York, who had   been   standing  some
distance   behind   him,   advanced   and
caught   bis hand   and gently led   the
honorable prelate to the  Holy   Table.
Then   they   both knelt,    the  greatest
dignitaries of England's church, next
in rank to the royal blood,their heads
bqwed upon the purple altar cloth.
Then the stream turned, for orders
came for the suites and ambassadors
to go out by another door. The returning throng met those coming up
almost at the coffin, well nigh causing
a melee.    Finally   they   reached    the
the    most     slnceJ
for   many  years.    St.    Paul's,    that
stately   plaoe   of   worship which   has I other door, and the body of the Queen
held many memorial   gatherings, was i was left alone before  the  altar,   save
filled to overflowing and before its
massive doors and on the streets surrounding it,were people who had tried
in vain to get in.
The   disposition   of   the four handsome gold lockets   donated by   Mayor
Fletcher for the bast rink  of   curlers
was   settled   last   night when   Rae's
Rossland rink won tbe final match by
a  comfortable     majority.    The   run-

was happy.
Deep solemnity filled all heats.
There was reminiseent grief, the feeling that one of the empire's great Institutions was missing, but everyone
felt that the inevitable death had
dealt kindly with their sovereign,
that her passing had been happy as
her life was useful. They gathered to
honor her memory rather than to
mourn ber loss. As a Queen, she
was an examplar of solid virtues and
the aspirations and lives of the middle class of Englishmen, and   they fit-
Windsor,   Feb.   2.���The   great east
windows of St. George's chapel   with
its   quaint   stained   figures   threw   a
soft light un this hurial and worshipping   place   of   Kings.     Before   each
oaken stall   glimmered  the wax taper
that burns   when   the   Knights of the
Gaiter   worship   there.    Above   their
heads, resting   upon   the   carved embrasures of the stalls were tne special
insignia of each   knight, while hanging over   head   were   the   motionless
banners hearing the strange device of
the   members   of  this most  powerful
order.    Un   each side   of the  chancel
flamed two rows   of  candles,   causing
the gold   and   the  red threads of  the
I knights to glitter. In sombre contrast
with these rows of   light   and   colors,
sat the long line of ptincesses and lad-
lies-in-waiting, making   a   foreground
j of deepest  black.    On   the   altar   two
j tapers   burned, but   within   the   rail ,|
I on each side stood two large   candela-
bras.    The      profusion     of    flowers
which was displayed outside the chapel ceased within. Iu the chancel there
were only a few   lights,   and the most
delicate green ferns were used  fur the
nltar   decorations.    There    was      no
crepe anywhere.

The   memorial   services    yesterday
were   a   solemn   function,   and   altogether   unique in   the history of Nel-
s in.    Nearly     three fourths   of    our
adult male population took part in the
preliminary procession,   a  proportion
probably   unequalled   by any city   in
the   Empire.    As befitted   the   solemn
occasion,   sectarian   differences  were
dropped, and   the clergymen of all denominations in the city   took   part in
the memorial   service.    It   was prop-
.erly regarded   by the citizens of  Nelson as a national occasion, while  the
presence  of  a  contingent  of  United
States citizens   lent   it   an almost international air.   In so far as  in them
lay,   the   people   of   Nelson   testified
yesterday   to   their   devotion   to  the
throne   and to their love for   our   departed Queen.

With the tact   for   which he   is famous, King Edward seems to be doing
everything   tbat   is possible to favorably   impress   his   nephew,   Emperor
William of Germany.    His  efforts are
cordially   seconded   by   the    English
press and   public,   who  would like to
see  more   cordial   relations   between
the two   great nations.    If  the   press
despatches   are   to   be believed, however, this feeling iB by no means reciprocated   In   Germany, which seems aa
uncompromisingly   and   unreasonably
anti-British as   ever.    The reason   for
this feeling is hard   to   seek, unless it
be jealousy of our commerce and   colonial empire.

Crawford creek section has   just  been
closed   by   W.    N.    Brayton,   a   well
known   promoter   who has made   his
headquarters at   Kaslo for some time.
A   month ago   Mr.    Brayton   bonded
the Mabel May   group of claims   four
miles   up   Crawford, creek   from   the
bay.    He   has   now   turned the property over at 8100,000 to a syndicate  of
capitalists   from   Montreal,   Toronto,
Chicago and   St. Paul,   retaining   an
interest for   himself.    The Mabel May
comprises 400 acres   of   mineral   land
and is a big copper-gold   proposition.
Eight   contact veins   cross the   property ranging   in   width  from   twelve
inches to 30 feet,and carrying average
values   per   ton   ranging   from JIB to
872.    Some 82,000 worth of   work   has
been done on the claims, the principal
feature   being   thu   stripping   of   the
main lead which   is   exposed for 2,000
feet.    Under   the   terms of  the   bond
work is   to   be commenced   within 00
days.    The   size   of   the    proposition
makes it probable that the idea of establishing   a   smelter     on   Crawford
creek where the   timber,   power   and
lime rock required   are available, will
be gone into in   earnest   at   an   early

was built on a curve through the
heart of a mountain, and when competed it was found tbat both ends fitted to a sixteenth of an inch while the
grades were absolutely correct, a

Importance of the Food Cure.
To discover a food that will cure a
nervous wreck is indeed a Godsend.
Mrs. Stella Penal, 1227 West Thrity
first street, Los Angeles, Cal., had a
very remarkable experience. She
says: "About twelve years ago, I was
run over by a carriage and my spine
injured. My left arm was partially
paralyzed, walking whs difficult and
I had continuous paius and aches in
my whole body.
"To induce a movement of the bowels, I invariably had to resort to mechanical means. I would sit up in bed
for hpurs, suffering severe colicky
pains, caused by the non-digestion of
the starch of the food. My heart was
Bo weak that at times no pulse could
be felt, and it seemed at times as if
I must die. I fainted very often
sometimes lying in a half fainting
condition for hours, unable to make
or speak, though conscious.
Shortly after Xmas Providence directed me to buy a box of Grape-Nuts
food, which I have since eaten twice
a day.
"The Improvement in health has
been wonderful; now I can eat and digest food, my bowels act naturally
and regularly, circulation is better,
catarrh moderated, and I gained much
in weight and am better every way.
I can read and think, while before
my eyes and brain felt too weak to do
either. I can walk a long way and
have not used my air cushion for
some time and I have no further need
of it."
This is a direct demonstration of
the fact that Grape-Nuts food surely
does rebuild the soft, gray matter in
the brain and nerve centers, and any
depleted person can prove this by use.
One can not get well of nervous troubles without the right sort of food to
rebuild this curious substance which
is found in the brain, and this must
be rebuilt from the food
state uniform, their breasts a mass of
gold braid.    All   the members of   the
cabinet took   their   seats   in   a   row.
Lord   Salisbury   followed   wearing   a
velvet  skull   cap and   a   plain   court
uniform. The ladies in waiting, veiled
as the princesses were yesterduy, took
seats    on   a  long  bench   below  the
stalls.   The   first member of tbe dip
lomatic corps to arrive was the Turk
ish ambassdor. Long before the stalls
were filled the nave   was  packed.    It
was here that   the  stands   had   been
erected   and   the chancel's screen   on
the organ  completely prevented   Bev
eral hnndred in the   nave from seeing
what went on   in   the   church.    Lord
Rosebery   came   in   about  1:15.   The
majority of the diplomatic corps occupied nearly two   entire rows of  stalls
on the right of the chancel.   The ambassadors, cabinet   ministers, knights
of the Garter,   and   the noble congregation  waited   patiently,   while  the
gentlemen-at-arms    took     up    their
stand at the   chancel  immediately  in
front of the pitiful   line of   mourning
women.   In   their right   hands  they
carried halberts and even against, the
brilliant background  of the stalls the
scarlet figures stood out conspicuously.
At. 2:15 o'clock Sir Walter   Parrott
at the organ commenced playing Mendelssohn's march in E minor from the
"Songs Without Words."   The castle
clock  Btruck   the half hour  and   the
organ ceased.   Quietly, with  no   heralding, the Archbishop of Canterbury,
the   Bishop   of   Winchester   and   the
Dean   of  Windsor,   walked Irom  the
vestry   dovjn   to  the   chancel.     The
nobles rose to tbeir feet and remained
standing. Behind the bishops came the
chor.   The  sound ot the guns   saluting was slowly heard   and silence fell
on tbe assemblage. Ten minutes passed   and   Sir   Walter   Parrott   played
softly.    The   white haired   statesmen
one by one dropped   into   tiieir     ..ts,
the strain was too much, and the diplomats  followed suit.    The music   of
the bands   playing   could   be   heard,
first faintly and tnen nearer and nearer until the   majestic loll   of the funeral march penetrated  every corner ot
the church.   For 15 minutes the  congregation   listened   to   the    military
bands   outside.    At   3:20   p.   m.   the
doors swung open.    "I am the  Resurrection," waB   sung   by   tbe    choir.
Slowly   the   white   robed boys  made
their way   up   the   aisle.    After   the
Archbishop of   Canterbury   came   tbe
white robed clergy, then the coffin and
then the  equerries   carrying-  the pall
and the   regalia.    Grenadiers   carried
tbe   coffin.   All    walking    together,
came the Ring, Emperor William and
the   Duke    of    Connaught.     Behind
them were the King of  the  Belgians,
the King of   Greece and the  King  of
Portugal,   and   after   them came  the
royal princes who   filled   the  chancel
and aisle, and   whose suites   crowded
into the nave.   Mr.   Choate, in  evening dress, entered with the procession
and sat in the   corner near the master
of   ceremonies.    The     choir    having
passed to the right of the   altar,   and
the   Queen     and     princesses   having
passed   to   their   positions     in    the
Queen's galleiy overlooking the altrr,
the   service   proceeded.       The   Archbishop stood at the altar steps directly
before the coffin.    On his left was tbe
Bishop of   Winchester   clad in scarlet
robes, who   read the   regular  prayers
for   the   dead.      The   Duke   of  Cambridge had to be   helped to a stall being unable to stand   any -longer.    As
the benediction   was   pronounced the
King and all present bent their heads
low.      An impressive   feature was the
Norroy   King of     Arms'   pronouncement   of   the   t'tles  of the  deceased,
ending up with "God Save the King,"
delivered so   forcefully   and dramatically that his hearers were stung into
a realization of  tho change of regime
which had so   suddenly   come   about.
At 4   o'clock   the   service   was   over.
The Archbishop of Canterbury   bowed
bis head on the altar and prayed, and
the kings and princesses passed to the
left of the altar leaving the coffin and
the catafalque   and   passing into   the
railroad men hold a midnight meeting and determined not to work today
as they had been requested to do. An
imposing service was held at Edinburgh in St. Giles cathedral. The
late Queen's retainers at Balmoral
and the people of the countryside
generally toiled through the snowbound roads to the services at Crathle
church, which was attended by the
Queen when at Balmoral.
Berlin, Feb. 2.���Memorial services
for Queen Victoria were held today in
many towns of the empire. The
service at Hamburg was attended by
the Empress of Germany, the hereditary Prince of Saxe-Meinigen, the
crown Princess of Greece and Princess Frederick of Hesse. At' Munich
the prince regent of Bavaria and other princes and princesses attended a
service, and at Kiel eighty-one guns
were fired by the war ships.

London, Feb. 2.���In every town and
village throughout the three kingdoms
business was stopped, shades were
drawn down, the public buildings
were draped and there were services
for the dead in all the Anglican and
in many of the Non-Conformist
churches. Some half a hundred individuals and societies at Birmingham
in a snowstorm piled up wreaths of
flowers at the foot of Queen Victoria's
statute. At Manchester thi> civic
body aud leading men marched in
procession through the principal thoroughfares to the cathedral servioes,
and the Non-Conformist bodies at the
same time held a great memorial
meeting in Free Trade hall while
others   attended    overflow   meetings.

German Syrup is the special pre
scription of Dr. A. Boshee, a cele
brated German Physician, and is ack
nowledged to be one of the most fortunate discoveries in Medicine. It
quickly cures Coughs, Colds and Lung
troubles of the severest nature, removing, as it does, the cause of the affec-
ton and leaving the parts in a strong
and healthy condition. It is not an
experimental medicine, but has stood
the test ot years, giving satisfaction
in every case, which its rapidly increasing sale every season confirms.
Two million bottles sold annually.
Bosche'B German Syrup was introduced in the United States in 1868,
and is now sold in every town and
village in the civilized world. Three
doses will relieve any ordinary cough.
