BONDING THE OTTAWA.
Further details of tbe bonding of
the Ottawa group on Springer ereek
announced in The Miner some days
ago are given in the Slocan Drill as
follows:
J. W. Williams, acting for his
brother, J. M. Williams, has seoured
the well known Ottawa claim, Springer creek, for 833,000. The deal is in
the nature of a working bond, running for twelve months. The first
payment falls due in July and the balance next January. Work is to commence on or before April 1 and at no
time must there be less than six
miners employed. The parties signing tbe bond were W. R. Clement, C.
P. Wiehmann and W. E. Worden,
The Ottawa is one of the oldest
claims in the camp and has always
been prominent. The lead is a
strong one and has been exposed almost the entire length of the property. A great deal of work has been
done and the claim has been under
: steady development all winter. Two
I .men have been

leged letters are of a highly sensa
tional character.
One of the letters said to have been
written by Wilcox is given in duplicate, bearing tbe alleged signature of
Wilcox. It is dated Honolulu Jan.
31, 1890, and is addressed to Dr. Jos
eph Losad, Captain Marti Burgos
and Senor J. Luna, and introduced
to them, "A fiiend of mine, who is
a very able man to help you in your
cause." Among other things the letter says: "Mr. will be an   useful
ally to light for tbe cause of tne Phil
ippines.
"One thing is sure that you could
resist against any army of invasion.
You have a population of 12,000,00(1
and a disciplined army of 30,000 well
equipped with modern arms. I have
already made up my mind to join you
in your campaign against America in
case they Insist to ignore the right,
the justice, of your cause. Tell General Aguinaldo I am already giving
my services for your country, and
am ready to obey orders to go to
your country and fight for the inde
pendence of your people and country
at any "lomen t."

A LAST VOYAGE
in I
Between Two Rows of Warships the Royal Catafalque
Is Solemnly Borne from Osborne House to
Portsmouth.
Biief Description of the Imptessive and Pathetic Scene,
People of Nelson Prepared to Duly Observe
the Mournful
Day.
London, Feb. 2.��� Half a million of
the late Queen Victoria's devoted
subjects lining the shores of the Solent yesterday witnessed a majestic
and awe inspiring pageant   and  bade
last farewell to their beloved ruler,
happy in the circumstances of her
death, sovereign of the greatest naval
power in the world and fortunate in
the manner of her obsequies. The
ceremony was a fitting tribute from
n nation owning Nelson for its hero
to its dead monarch. All who
were witnesses of tbe function testify
to tbe profound emotion it inspired,
and agreed that the spectacle could
not have been surpassed for splendcr
and solemn effect. The dominant
note in tbe whole scene was its grand
simplicity, and, so far as human utterance was concerned, its silence.
The sad procession glided along in
beautiful order and precision as
though moved by some hidden power.
No incident of any kind occurred to
mar its Btately beauty. There was no
accident of any soit ashore or afloat.
Tho weather was tbe traditional
'Queen's weather," and the "Queen
if the Sea" was carried across the
waters to the accompaniment of minute guns and military music���a picture which w'll live in   history.
If the elements should prove equally
favorable today, which at the moment
of cabling. 3 a. in., seems doubtful,
the millions of the metropolis will
witness an even greater tribute to
the Queen, who will be burled as a
soldier's daughter. Thousands of
troops are now marching into London
to breakfast hurriedly preparatory to
taking their places in tbe line of
march. With this peaceful military
invasion is an equally large civilian
invasion from the provinces and
abroad.
From Victoria station to Paddington station the streets of London are
now draped in purple, black and
white. In St. James street, one
meets with a perfect blaze of purple
of all shades, Piccadilly is gorgeous.
Some of the clubs are entirely veiled
with purple cloth, relieved by white
bowes and rosettes. The lamp posts
in the middle of the road along the
route bave all been removed, and the
streets are being sanded preparatory
to the function of today. The cavalcade which will follow the coffin,with
King Edward in the centre flanked
by Emperor William and the Duke of
Connaught, will exceed in brilliancy
anything ever seen in England.
There will be nearly fifty kings and
princes, each wearing the uniform of
his own country. Following the
brilliant cavalcade will come the
princesses in carriages.
The order of precedence here observed emphasizes the great changes
the death of Victoria has made among
her daughters. Princess Christian,
Princess Beatrioe and Princess Louise
now yield places to the daughters of
the King. The first carriage will contain Queen Alexandria, the Duchess
of Fife, now Princess Royal. Princess
Victoria and Princess Charles of Denmark. The sJcond carriage will contain the daughter of Queen Victoria and
the King of the Belgians. The court
sent a special invitation to Mr. Henry
White, secretary of the United States
embassy to attend the service at St.
George's chapel roval today, and to be
present at the luncheon that will be
given in Windsor Castle.
Portsmouth, Feb 1.���The members
of parliament and newspaper correspondents representing every nation
embarked on a small steamer and
were   entertained   at luncheon  today
as guests of the admiralty. A' gauze
of fog hung over the still waters of
the Solent and the warships appeared
like gieat shapeless black rocks. The
fleet stretched from Portsmouth to
Cowes, the turrets of Osborne standing above tbe purple hills. Abreast
were tbe battleships Benbow and Colli ngwood guardlog the avenue ten
miles long through which the Queen's
body was to pass to the mainland of
the kingdom. There were 10 British
battleships, II cruisers and 80' gunboats. Eight naval ambassadors of
friendly powers were ranged along
tbe Portsmouth harbor and white gunboats and steamers with official spectators formed the remainder of tbe
southern line. The British ships were
an imposing sight with their uniform decorations, coal black hulls
with a line of red just above the water, white upper works and yellow
smokestacks. All displayed tbe jack
at the foremast and the white ensign
at half mast at their sterns. The foreign ships attracted most of the attention of the English spectators. Tbe
giant of the whole fleet was the Jap
anese battleship Haatsuz, the largest
war machine afloat, a fortress of clay
colored steel with the scarlet sun on
white field hanging at her stern, the
fighting emblem of the youngest world
power. Emperor William's navy was
represented hy the Nymphe, the Victoria Louise, the Hagen and the Baden, all having blue gray colored upper works. The Hagen was flying
Prince Henry of Prussia's flag, yellow arms on a white field.
The Dupuy de Lome, under France's
tricolor, was a fine sight, she is built
with a prow fronted long ram, high
of the water.
Portugal was represented by the
cruiser Don Carlo6. The ill fortune of
Spain's navy asserted itself at the
last moment for word came that the
Empradore Carlos V. had turned back
from her trip to the port with crippled engines.
The pathway between the warships
was a quarter of a mile wide avenue
of clear water. Behind the lines of
warships hovered a few yachts and
channel steamers. Black torpedo
boats and torpedo boat destroyers
were skimming about, and officers'
gigs and launches swarmed everywhere. Bugle calls came over the
waters and gaudy signal flags burst
out and disappeared. The British
ships were also lighted with gleams
of the scarlet coats of tbe marines.
Tbe black muzzles of the huge guns
swung from their ports looked very
impressive.
Queen's weather came at noon in a
burst of sunsh'iio and the clouds cleared away from tbe channel, and lingered above the treetops along the
crest of hills on either side while tbe
police boats ushered tho merchant
shipping and crowded exclusion crafts
back to their anchorages under tbe
shelter of the shore. Through the
whole length of the channel there was
only a long double file of warships
wth black messenger boats dashing
among them.
For nearly three houis the fleet
watched for the coming of the funeral. The officers on the bridges in
the most gorgeous uniforms with all
their decorations and medals scanned
the Cowes shore docks through their
glasses. An occasional brilliant burst
of sunshine showed tens of thousands
of spectators, subjects of the dead
Queen assembled to witness her last
passage from Cowes to Portsmouth.
Shortly before 3 o'clock white
smoke broke from the Majestlc's side
and a second later a report cracked
over the harbor and echoed to tbe hill
announcing the starting of the Alber-
ta from Trinity pier. From ship to
ship the salute was passed down the
line. Each vessel of the fleet was
firing minute guns. They all employ
ed their "shore side batteries so that
on the channel side there were silhouettes of hulls, spars and ironwork
before the backgrounds of dense gray
smoke. Tbe sound was that of
great battle. The funeral fleet was
just well under way when it camt
abreast of the press boat. Eight tor
dedo boat destroyers crept away, mov
ing in pairs like silent pall bearer*
marching before a bearse. They were
the Portsmouth squadron, of exactly
tbe same size, every inch of hull and
machinery painted a dull black and
with an officer standing like a statue
In its bow, their crews were aligned
"at attention," like sentries on theii
decki, and hardly a ripple came from
their bows, their speed being barely
five knots.
The pairs of torpedo boat destroyer
were jtbout one hundred yards aparl
with four boats between stem and
bow. A quarter of a mile behind, fo)
lowed the royal yacht Alberta. Al
her stern stood a tall officer, uniform
ed in dark blue, alone and as motion
less as if he were a part of the ship.
The Union Jack was at the foremast,
the roval standard fell from hall
way up the mainmast and the naval
ensign trailed from her stern. Tht
after deck of the yacht was roofed
with a white awning and beneath the
awning, through glasses, could In
seen tbe catafalque, of royal purph
and ruby lines, on which rested tht
coffin. Four officers in sombre uniforms stood at the four corners of tbt
catafalque, with their faces turned to
ward the ships. A few other person.'
could be seen clustered on the Alberta's deck.
As the funeral yacht moved slowl}
past, tbe decks of the warships wert
crowded witb their crews. They were
all manned to their full complement
The sailors, in blue, with straw hats,
formed a solid mass along the deck.*
of each ship, standing with thei
arms at "attention." A line of scarlet coats, topped by snowy, shining
helmets, on the after decks, showed
wbere the marines weie stationed.
The fighting tops and guns were also
manned. The officers stood out in
showy full dress array. The band of
each ship took up the funeral march
when the Alberta came abreast of her
and the spectators of all the othei
craft tqok off their hats.
Following the Alberta trailed along
five other yachts at regular intervals.
First was the Victoria and Albert, a
royal yacht twice as large as the Al
berta and of similar design. She carried the royal mourners who, as relatives or officials, followed the coffin.
King Edward and Emperor Willam,
were chief among them, but from the
observation boats they were the only
group recognizable. A few scarlet
coats could be seen, with ladies in the
deepest mourning, and on the upper
deck the Queen's Indian attendants
were distinugished by their white
helmets and turbans.
In the wake of tbe Victoria and Al
bert, Emperor William's yacht Hoh-
enzollcrn loomed up like an ocean
greyhound as large as a warship,
painted white with yellow funnels,
glittering unfunerally, carrying the
German flag at her bow and the naval
ensign at halfmast at her stern. Three
other yachts came in single file he
hind. Tbe Osborne, larger than tbe
Alberta and of tbe same class, next
tbe admiralty yacht Enchantress,
���mailer, aad then a little Trinity
house   yacht.    Finally   came another
vessel, a black torpedo boat destroyer.
Twenty minutes lifter the first pair
of torpedo bout destroyeis came
abreast of the press bout, the historic
parade had passed. The guns on each
win ship   censed firing when the   Al-
���rta had   gone by   aud   the   marines
reversed arms," but they and nil tho
crews remained ut their stations,
while the fleet of steamers from tho
Hhorcs, their decks solid masses of
black, and crowded with thousands
of the late Queen's subjects raised
their anchors and followed outside tbe
line of warships.
It was five o'clock when the echoes
of the last gun censed. The sun was
a great red globe sinking to the hill
tops, the clouds began to fall again
upon the Channel and the body of
the Queen was safe in Portsmouth
linrbor.
When the Alberta entered the harbor with the minute guns in the forts
sounding, the bells of all the churches
und of the city tolling, the ancient
line of buttle ship, Victory, moored
there, fired a salute from muzzle
loaders, the marines manning her
stood at arms, the admiral's band
played a dirge, the escorting torpedo
boat destroyers drew ahead and steam-
od to their berths and the Alberta was
moored in tbe clearance yard. A
juard of a hundred marines marched
on board. During the night, the
quarter deck where the bier restB is
lighted by electricity.
Conspicuous   among the  officers  on
luty aboard are Vice Admiral Seymour, who distinguished himself in
the China campaign, and Captain
Lambton. of South African celobrity.
The King's yacht was made fast to
i buoy in midsteain with the Hohenzol-
lern lying near. Tbe royal personages
ind their suites dined on board and
ivill pass the night there. Steam
launches with armed guards patrolled
irouiid both   yachts   all   night.    The
rowd in Portsmouth is   estimated   at
00,000.

OBSERVANCE  IN   NELSON.
The details of the memorial service
in Nelson were finally completed yesterday when one or two minor points
in connection with the event were
irranged. Unless something ultogeth-
,'r unforeseen arises in the next few
hours today's proceedings will out-
lank in every respect previous efforts
in the direction of public ceremonies,
ind will be on a scale worthy of the
inland capital of a great western
province. The procession, which is
to parade as an evidence of respect for
the departed sovereign, will represent
tbe best religious, fraternal, business
nnd industrial interests of the city
together with citizens generally. In
addition the presence of citizens of
foreign nations, partieularly those of
the great republic to the south, will
make the spectacle unique in the annals of the city and district. The
proceedings will embrace every class
nnd creed   of the community.
At 11 o'clock this morning the
lodge rooms of the various fraternities and labor organizations will
begin to hum with activity. For half
in hour the efforts of those in charge
will be directed toward getting their
companies of marchers into shape and
ou to the street,where the marshall of
the day and his staff take charge and
direct the various units to the points
which they are to occupy in the line
of march. It is confidently expected
that not less than 780 men will be in
line for the parade and as the task of
arranging these in order Is not small,
the fraternities are requested to assemble sharply on time.
The make-up of the procession has
already been announced. The Rocky
Mountain Rangers lead the parade,
followed by the navy, army and militia veteians. The militiamen will
bave with them tbe Maxim gun
which has been draped in royal
mourning for the occasion, and will
step to the air of the Dead March
from Saul with reversed arms. The
ine of march is from Fraternity hall
ast ou Baker street to .loscphine
street, south on Josephine to Victoria
street, west on Victoria to Kootenay
street, north on Kootenay street to
Baker, east on llaker to Ward street,
south on Ward to Front, thence east
to Hall street and tho recreation
grounds. At the grounds the programme outlined in The Miner will
be carried through. Programmes
containing the order of service and
the hymns for the occasion will be
distributed and the Salvation Army
band is to lead the singing. The service is intended to occupy from 30 to
40 minutes, it being deemed wise to
shorten the open air proceedings at
this season of the year.
Special attention is directed   to  the.
A   number     of     very      important
changes are contemplated   in   connection with   the   C. P. R. In   Kootenay
and Boundary districts   if rumor is to
be credited.    Local   railway men   are
watching the bulletins from the headquarters at Montreal with keen Interest, in the firm   belief   that   the next
few weeks   will   bring about  changes
which will surprise the  general   public. It goes without Buying that nothing definite has been   made known, in
fact Captain J.W. Troup who left last
week for   Montreal   wus   in ignoraneu
of what his hurried trip might   bring
forth.    It is stated,however,and probably with   considerable   knowledge of
existing conditions,   that   the   recent
absorption   of   the   Yukon   steamship
line    into   the  C.    P. R.   system   has
made a vacancy for a first class steamboat man and that in filling the  position the company naturally picked  on
Captain Troup whose  ability   in   this
line ib unquestioned.    When   it   came
to   sscuring   an   official    who  could
swing a steamer line and a section   of
railroad   such   as   the   White    Horse
road   the   company   probably decided
tbat the very best man  available   was
the gentleman who   has   managed the
Kootenay rail   and   steamer   lines for
the past year.
In event of this being done, report
has it tbat a very important change
will be made in connection with what
has been known as the Kootenay and
Boundary divisions. This is no less
than its establishment as a separate
and distinct district answerable only
to the head office, and under the
charge of a general superintendent
who will take charge of the Crow's
Nest, Kootenay, Columbia and Western and Boundary roads with a division superintendent in charge of each.
At present General Superintendent
Marpole of Vancouver, exercises an
oversight over the local divisions.
The reason for thecliunge would probably be tbat the business has increased
to such an extent as to justify the
extra staff. The name of II. E. Beas-
ley, formerly superintendent at Nelson and for the past year chief clerk
in Piesident Shaughnessy's ofliee, is
mentioned in connection with the
general superintendence with Mr.
Uuchesnay, now of Rerelstoke, as one
of the superintendents.
The Miner does not give the foregoing as a statement of fact, hut as the
gist of what is general talk among
local railroad officials. Hitherto the
railroad men have sized up the situation pretty accurately, and it would
surprise no one if their predictions in
this case should be very close to iho
mark.
The new C.P.R. tug will be launched on Wednesday or Thursday next at
tbe shipyards. The craft is complete
with the exception of u few finishing
touches which can bo applied after
she Is afloat, and the management
has decided to take advantage of the
favorable conditions now existing for
getting her into her natural element.
It is understood that a name has been
selected for the tug but it will not be
divulged until the lady who has tbe
distinction of christening the bout has
broken a bottle of I'ommery over the
prow and has announced the name.
The company will state beforehand
when the launching is to take place
and the public will be enabled to
witness the event.
Continued on Fourth Page.
The C. P. R. is now handing double
the tonnage of coal, coke nnd ore that
it was moving at this time last year.
This statement is given on the authority of a prominent freight official
and is a strong testimonial to the advances made by the country generally
during the last twelve months. In
the Boundary country, of course, the
ore shipments are several times as
great as at any previous time, this being largely due to the Miner-Graves
syndicate's operations.    In tbe Koote-

Office Diaries, 1901.
Today is the great day of mourning
throughout the length and breadth of
tbe empire. Saxon and Celt, Hindoo
and Mohammedan, alike will bow
their heads in grief. For today, all
that is mortal of Queen Victoria, the
mother of her people, will be laid in
their last resting place.
A thousand pens have paid timely
tributes to our dead sovereign, and
the civilised world has risen to acclaim her virtues. We knew also that
the grim reaper could not much longer stay his hand, that she had already
been long spared to reign over her
people with the wisdom of a great
ruler, and the tenderness of a mother
toward the unfortunate and suffering
among her subjects. A worthy successor, too, reigns in ber stead ; but
all this does not fill the void in our
hearts. As children we were taught
to reverence tha Queen, as men we
have learnt to fully value her, and
now that she has gone we all feel that
there is something wanting in our
national life. With highest authority
but without arrogance, of spotless life
amid every kind of temptation,
thoughtful for others when often bowed down by domestic grief,Queen Victoria is enshrined forever in the
hearts of her people. To our children's children she will be known as
"the Wise and Oool Queen."
Yesterday saw the royal yacht with
its priceless burden pass through the
grim ranks of her great fleet, manned
by the sailors she loved so well. Today the citizens of the great metropolis will see the body of their loved
sovereign carried to the grave, escorted by her soldiers and followed by tbe
mourners of the nations of the world.
Here in Nelson, many thoiiBand milet.
away, her loyal subjects will assemble, and, with equal sorrow, tender
their last token of respect to the memory of   the dead.
Happy is he, whether monarch or
subject, noble or peasant, of whom it
can be truthfully said, as of Queen
Victoria, "She hath done what she
could."

SHORT STORIES.
The late Sir Arthur Sullivan had a
good story about Sir V. Oore-Ouseley,
Oxford professor,who could talk nothing but music, relates the Newcastle,
(Eng.) Chronicle. "Sim" Egerton
(Lord Wilton) invited him to dine at
the Life Guards' meBS, aud Ouseley
sought to entertain them with tbe hn-
morous points in the degree "exercise" of an unsuccessful candidate.
The officers, of course, did not understand a word. Ouseley continued :
"And you'll scarcely believe me,colonel, when I tell you that the whole
movement was in the hypomxolydiun
mode."
"Hless my soul," replied the colonel, "you don't say bo!"
"It's a fact," gravely Baid Ouseley.
This amusing stoiy from the chronicles of an English rural town Illustrates the danger in kindling ambition in the rural breast;
An officer of a Yorkshire Yeomanry
regiment, in an address   to his troops
made a stirring allusion to the medals      0ur pjeture() havo a���  ^ charm o{
worn by some   army veterans   in   the   the person.    They   are   true   as   life,
ranks.    One   of the   volunteers after-' yet without the faults of nature,
ward went home in a very thoughtful |
frame of mind and   the next morning
he came on parade with several medals on   his breast,   Said   the  officer*

In response to the lequest of the
city council ut its last meeting the
secretary of tho Nolson Charity Organization has presented a .detailed
statement of Its disbursements In
charity for last year. The sooiety
received Sx.'n and disbursed $418, the
difference representing the deficit
which tho couucll has been asked to
make up. When the society was in
operation last winter the parties who
applied to the city hall for assistance were referred to the secretary
and if the case pioved to be meritorious, aid was given. Thus a number
of cases wore attended to which must
otherwise have been taken in hand by
the city officials, and the disbursements for charity by the city were
very slight when they might have been
heavy. In view of this it is likely
the new council will help theorganlz
ation out.

her) writes, "I had become almost a
coffee fiend, drinking it at each meal,
then afterward I was no nervous and
weak that I would drink more coffee.
I was a great sufferer with stomach
and heart trouble.
Everything I ate distressed me.
There would be great puffs beneath
my eves and my bands and feet were
terribly swollen. 1 was reduced to
108 pounds and was really slowly dying.
A gentleman talked seriously to husband and myself about giving up
coffee and using Postum Food Coffee.
He convinced me, from his own and
other experiences, that probably coffee
was the cause of my trouble, so we
tried Postum, but at first it seemed so
flat and tasteless that I was almost
discouraged. However, I looked at the
directions on the package and found I
had not been boiling it long enough,
so I followed the directions exactly and
had a clear, rich beverage, with a
strong ring of good coffee, and very
delicious taste.
I began to sleep better und was not
quite so nervous, my stomach and
heart trouble slowly disappeared, and,
of course, as I was getting well I
stuck to Postum, and that was easy,
hecauBe it tasted so good. Now after
a year's using I can truly say I never
felt better in my life, have no trouble
whatever with my stomach, sleep
well, eat well,and weigh 127^ pounds.
My neivous headaches have all disappeared. I feel like telling everybody
that is ill to try leaving off coffee
and use Poatum Food Coffee, for it
will surely work a cure." Mrs. Ella
Kituhig, (Salinas, California.
