GOODERHAM
ON THE C.RR.
Toronto Capitalist Criticises
Action of the Railway
People.
Says Freight and  Smelter
Rates are Very Much
Too High.
Toronto, Jan. 18.���The Toronto
News publishes the folio.ving intoi-
vlew witb Mr. George Gooderham. on
the freight situation, as it affects
Southern British Columbia:
"If the Canadian Pacific railway
does not reduce its freight rates on
ore, all the mines in British Columbia, whicli are subject to the tolls of
that corporation, will have to be shut
down eventually."
"And that means that the War
Eagle will discontinue operations,
sooner or  later?"
"Assuredly, the War Eagle as well
as others."
Such were the statements made
hy Mr. George Gooderham, president
of the War Eagle Mining company to
a News reporter, and it accounts for
the rapid fall iu that stock on the exchanges daring the past few days.
The value of the stock has declined
without apparent reason, and outside
operators, when questioned, professed to be Ignorant of any reason for the
fall. There was a rumor on the
Btreet tbat the Oooderham-Blackstock
sydnicate was at war with the Canadian Pacific railway and had threatened unless that corporation showed
more liberality in its freight charges
on ore, that it would withdraw all its
Interests from British Columbia. Mr.
Gooderham was questioned as to the
truth of this report. "Well, we cunt
say we'll withdraw our interests at
���present," be said, "hut you can say
f.iis���We will not proceed any farther
with our investments unless the Canadian Pacific railway gives us better
treatment. The object of the company now Is to get as much as they
can without making us operate - the
mines at a loss. We do not propose
to submit to this. In addition to the
high freight charges, the rates for
treatment of ore at the Trail smelter,
which is owned by the Canadian Pacific railway company, aro excessive.
We made an offer for the purchase of
the Trail smelter, but the Canadian
Pacific railway company demanded
from 9600,000 to 8800,000 for it, a price
we regard as too high by at least 25
per cent. They have also refused to
meet us in the reduction of freight
rates.''
"Then, if you fail to come to an
agreement with the Canadian Pacific
railway, as to the purchase of the
smelter, and as to the froight rates on
the* ore, the War Eagle will have to
shut down?"
"Ye, baldly stated, that will be
the result," answered Mr. Gooder-
hoiu; "but I think that tho publication of soch a statement will have a
bad effect on tbe stock. Ihe brokers
would take advantage of It to hammer
down the stock "
After further discussion. Mr. Good-
erham concluded: "1 think the Canadian Pacific railway company, will
yield, as great pressure is being
brought to bear on it."
THEY CAPTURED  HIM.
Slgmund Hertz Arrested at Qtieens-
towu Charged   With Forgery.
Queenstown, Jan. 18.���Tho Allan
line steamer Corinthian, Captain Hnn-
ey, which left Halifax, Monday, Jan.
7, for Queenstown and Liverpool, arrived here at 10 o'olock lust evening
with some difficulty. Sigmund Hertz,
of New York City, for whoso extradition the United States authorities are
asking on charges of forgery is on
board. His wife accompanied him.
They were the enly pussengcrs booked
for Queenstown. They were transferred to the tender and Hertz was immediately arrested by three detectives.
When charged with forgery Hertz
merely replied: "I know nothing
about It." Ho had given his name in
the passenger list as "Henry Enden"
and h�� described himself ns a merchant. Hertz will bo charged before a
magistrate this morn'ng. It is believed that he possesses a largo sum of
money and a quantity of bonds, tbe
.proceeds of forgery, but the police
search discovered nothing.
MURDER ON A TRAIN.
London, Jan. 18,���A sensational
murder won committed yesterday afternoon on a train of the London and
South Western railroad. The murderer, said in some quarters to be an
American, entered at East Leigh the
car occupied by Mrs. King of Southampton   and  Pearson of-Winchester.
When passing Surbiton the man
drew a revolver, killed Pearson and
wounded Mrs. King in the cheek.
He then rifled the pockets of Pearson.
The murderer jumped out of the train
at Vauxhall and was .pursued and
captured.
APPEAL FOR YEOMANRY.
Lord Huberts Asks For a Prompt
Response.
London, Jan. 18.���Lord Roberts,
who was entertained privately at
dinner last evening by the United Service Club,' the guests including the
Prince of Wales, the Duke of York,
the Duke of Cambridge and some three
hundred officers, has issued from the
war office a stirring appeal to the
country for a prompt response to the
call for 5,000 yeomanry, for whose
past services in South Africa be highly commends the gratitude of the nation. The authorities continue to
hold a hopeful view as to the South
African situation but they seem to
recognize that vigorous measures are
necessary. The proclamation of martial law throughout most the whole of
Cape Colony, Lord Kitchener's strong
measures against the population of
the republics, the placing on reduced
rations of tbe wives of the men on
commando,and similar measures go to
show that tbeie is still heavy work
ahead.
British offensive operations have
ceased for the present. It is supposed
that Lord Kitchener is collecting his
strength for a final effort to crush or
trap the commandoes by a repetition
of the tactics which caused the surrender of General Cronje and General
Prlnzloo. It is alleged that the Boers
who are concentrating at Warola aad
Ermenlo are preparing to descend into
Natai. The casualty list issued yesterday shows that the Boers have released 297 British who were captured
at Helvetia and Belfast. The reports
regarding the captures at Belfast
have not yet been allowed to transpire. It is asserted that more heavy
naval guns will be landed at the
cape. Information as to the doings of
the invaders is hard to obtain, but it
is clear they are getting very little
help from the Dutch. Twioe they attempted to capture Barkly East, but
both times they were repulsed. For
three days they occupied Soutberland
but,they cleared out on the approach
of a* British column. Small scattered
parties are reported operating in various parts of Cier's district. Apparently the invaders abandoned the idea
of attacking Clan William on finding
the town well defended. A commando
of 1,000 has been active in the Richmond district but there the Boers have
secured only 100 Dutch recruits.
REPULSED THE BOERS.
British Beat Off an Attack Made By
1,000 Boers.
Standcrton, Wednesday, Jan. 10.���
Colvllle's mobile column marching
from New Denmark to Vlaglacht was
attacked by 1,000 Boers divided into
two forces. One force made a determined attempt on the baggage and
the other on the cavalry constituting
the rearguard. The cavalry were compelled to retire under protection of
four companies of rifles hidden behind
a ridge who were waiting with bayonets. The Boers then made a speedy
retreat leaving several dead and
wounded from the heavy British fire.
Eventually both attacks were repulsed,
tbe Boers losing heavily. The British
wei'M not able to pursue the Boers owing to the necessity of protecting
their baggage. Their casualties were
one killed and 15 wounded.
ROUTED   THE BOERS.
New Zeuluuders and Bushmen Make a
Vigorous A.tack.
London, Jan. 18.���General Kitchener, telegraphing from Pretoria under
date of today, says Colonel Grey with
New Zelandors and bushmen has vigorously attacked the enemy eight
miles west of Ventersburg and completed routed the Boers. General
Kitohenei adds details of tbe lnsigaifl-
cent casualties of both forces, and
continues, 'Colvllle's mobile column
was attacked north of Standerton on
January 17 by a concentration uf the
enemy, who weie driven off with severe loss. Our casualties were 15
wounded and one killed,"
WILL ENTER MARCH 5TH.
The Hague, Jan. 17.���The state
entry of Queen Wilhelmina and tbe
Prince Consort "into Amsterdam has
been fixed for March 5th. This announcement seems to set at rest the
recent Btories of disagreements as to
settlements and citizenship.

Cyanide Plant at Athabasca
Almost Completed���Heating Plant In.
Other Matters of Interest in
Connection With Mining
Affairs.
The cyanide plant at the Athabasca
mine is practically completed. Yesterday the steam heating apparatus for
the cyanide building arrived here and
today the first installment of the pipe
and fixtures went up tbe hill. Mr.
Fell, manager of the Athabasca, informs Tbe Miner that the addition of
the heating apparatus will complete
the work on the building. The inference is tbat the cyanide plant will
be in operation shortly, and the Athabasca will then have one of the few
complete reduction works in the Kootenays.
��� ���   ���
MAY AND JENNIE.
First Shipment of Plant Delivered at
Siding Today.
The first shipment of plant for the
May and Jennie mine was delivered
by the C. P. R. at Granite Siding today. This is the initial outfit of the
mill machinery from Fraser & Chalmers, tbe big Chicago firm. Considerable work has been done at the property in the directiou of preparing the
ground for tbe mill building. The
wagon road connecting the May and
Jennie with the terminus of the Royal
Canadian road is in excellent condition and the machinery can be placed
on the ground with. ease.

PARADISE CLAIM.
John Miles Believes He   Has  One of
the Best on the Creek.
John Miles, owner of   the   Paradise
claim on Forty-Nine creek, is in  the
oity today.  He states that the devlop-
ment   of   the   claim     is    proceeding
steadily, a distance of 50 feet having
been reached in the tunnel.   The vein
has widened out to six feet and  Miles
believes his proposition is one of  the
biggest   things   on   the    creek.   The
samples of ore brought into  the  city
today are unusually fine  specimens of
free milling   rock.    At   the  Republic
adjoining the Paradise, Joe   Duhamel
and a couple of men are at work.

MARKS'   CALIFORNIA
Reaches a Stage Which Makes Regular
Shipments Possible.
'A. J. Marks has a crew of men at
work on the California property back
of New Denver. The mine Is 3,500
feet above the level of the town and
has been developed to a stage where
ore could be shipped regularly. The
expense of pucking down the hill is
excessive, however, and it is unlikely
that shipments will be made this winter. Before another season rolls around
it is probable the mine will be equip
ped with a tramway which will reduce tbe charges for handling ore to
the shipping point from 812 to 81.25,
a very material reduction. The Call-
fonla is looking well and promises to
develop into a very valuable proposition.
���   *   *
ON THE TAMARAC MINK.
Rapidly Nearing Producing Stage and
Much Oro in Sight.
0. II. Master, superintendent of the
Tamarac mine at Ymir. was in tho city
over night en route to Rossland on
business in connection with the property. The Tamarao is rapidly nearing the producing stage and the management figure that before this time
next month ore will be moving from
tho mine to reduction works at Silica
or elsewhere as may be arranged. The
tramway now In course of construction by B. 0, Riblot under the direction of P. Lemleux is rapidly nearing
completion. The cables are stretched
and both ore bins are almost finished.
It is likely that any delay In the
commencement will be due to the
Nelson & Fort Sheppard people
failing to complete the spur from the
mainline to the terminus of the tramway. Grading has been started on
this work but this and the laying of
the steel is likely to take some time.
At the mine everything is In shape
for sloping and whon the shipping facilities are available the crew will be
increased and ore taken out at a lively rate. Considerable money has been
expended in opening up the property,
the main tunnel being in 600 feet and
other development work on a good
scale whicli demonstrates the presence
of an ore  body of  sufficient dimen
sions to keep up shipments for a considerable period without further
work, althongh, of course, the company proposes to keep its development
well in advance of the, mining operations. Tbe values aret carried in arsenical pyrites and a conservative estimate of the entire ore body places tbe
average values at 810 and on this
basis the property can be worked at a
good profit. Eventually the company
purposes installing a cyanide plant for
the purpose of treating the ore on
the ground.

ALARMING RUMORS.
Story of   Queen   Victoria's   Seriously
Illness Promptly Denied.
London, Jan. 18.���Alarming rumors
were circulated today to the effect
that Queen Victoria was seriously ill
And that her family has been summoned to Osborne. Inquiries of the As��o-
ciated Press at Osborne at 3 o'clock
this morning elicited a flat denial of
the report. The Prince of Wales is
now at Marlborough House, where no
news has been received indicating
that her majesty is not enjoying her
usuni health. The Duke of York
went to Sandringham this evening.
In spite of denials from Osborne
and Marlborough house the rumors
about the queen 'stillness alarmed the
public and adversely affected the stock
exchange. According to early Cowes
telegrams the queen was not well yes
tcrduy and had not improved today
bnt later news from Cowes said the
queen had been suffering from insomnia but was better this evening. Sir
Francis Lnklng, surgeon to her majesty, bus been called Into consultation with Sir .lames Rcld, her majesty's resident physician. The Associated Press communicated with Osborne house at 0 o'clock this evening

COMES THIRD
ON THE LIST
Nelson More of a Shipping
Point Than Some People
Imagine.
C.P.R.  Barges   Bring   Ship
Tonnage Away Up���Figures For It.
Nelson's importance as a shipping
center is very generally overlooked
and the majority of The Miner's readers will probably be surprised to learn
that in the statement of vessels, British and foreign, employed in the
coasting trade of Canada, arriving and
departing from Canadian ports as
compiled in tbe trade and navigation
returns last issued by the government,
Nelson comes third in the Dominion.
For the purpose of comparison the
figures for tbe three leading ports are
appended:
VESSELS  ARRIVED.
Ports.        No. Craft      Tons Crews
Montreal 3,340      1,460,404 58,155
Vancouver.. .2,107        429,050 31,406
Nelson 1,854        646,450 31,294
Under the head of "Vessels Departed," practically the same figures are
repeated. The totals represent the
movemenets and tonnage of the 18 or
20 certified craft which ply on Kootenay lake.
In view of these facts it Is not surprising that W. W. Stumbles, special
commissioner for British Columbia
representing the department of marine
and fisheries, spent several days here
in November securing information regarding Nelson's shipping*, interests
and receving suggestion from local
steamboat men as to improvements
desired. Mr. Stumbles returned to
Ottawa with the intention of recommending two important features for
Kootenay lake. One of these was
the replacing of the old platform and
cage buoys now employed In the west
arm with modern tubular buoys of
steel. The channel between Nelson
and the Outlet changes regularly with
the seasons and is as tortuous as the
average river channel, which justifies
the department in adopting every
precaution to protest lake craft. By
reason of its Indestruetihle nature
and the fact that It cannot upset is
the present buoys are prone to do. thu
tubular buoys will be a step In the
right direction. There seems to he i 0
doubt in the mind of steumbout men
tbat the change will be mnde a few
months hence. Further than this the
commissioner was impressed with the
necessity of establishing a lighthouse
on Cape Horn in the Pilot Ray section and It is quite probable that this
will be done in the near future, Capo
Horn projects into the lake at a point
where the sweep of tho wind from the
south und of tho lake hns a tendency
to dash steamers against the rocky
shore of the cape, and the mariners
would be relieved from much anxiety if the point wns marked hy a
light.
The understanding Is that the department of murine and fisheries Is
to locate nn olllcei permanently In
this province, und In this event It Is
thought that little difficulty will he
encountered in securing a resident
board of examiners for the Kootenay,
Arrow and Slocan lakes.

It was a oompliment to be proud of,
that paid by Hon. John Gould, of the
dairy department of the United States
agricultural bureau, to the dairymen
of Canada, in an address delivered to
dairymen at London, Ont., yesterday.
Mr. Gould maae the statement that
Canadians were the best dairymen in
the world. We had always believed
that Canadians excelled at almost
everything they put their hands to,
bat it is especially pleasing to find
that there are men of other nations
who also recognize our good points.
Tonight the Sandon hockey team
comes to Nelson to test their skill
against that of tbe hockey players of
Nelson. The attendance at the rink
to witness tbe match should be large.
The home players should be encouraged and the visiting sportsmen
should be shown that Nelson takes an
interest in her athletic young men.
In this connection it is not out of
place to refer to the carnivals to be
given at Sandon and Rossland In the
near future. To both of these events
Nelson should send her most skilled
ourlers, hockey players and skaters,
and thereby lend her aid toward the
success of the efforts of the people of
our neighboring towns. On July 1 of
each year we send out invitations to
all the people of the Kootenays to
come and make merry with us. If we
accept their invitations at other seasons of the year they will accept ours
on Dominion Day and the day following and the spirit of good-fellowship will be abroad in the land. Let
Nelson send us many people as it can
and as much money as it can afford
to the celebrations of our neighbors.
The announcement that Madame Albani is to favor Nelson with her presence next April was undoubtedly read
with a great deal of pleasure by Nelson people yesterday. As Canada's
gruutust songstress she should be
doubly welcome in every town that
she will visit in the Dominion.
YOU BET IT IS.
Nelson, B. C., must be a prosperous
sort of a town. At Christmas an enterprising Nelson firm offered a turkey free to every poor person who applied for it, and only six persons took
advantage of the offer. And th ire are
seven thousand people In Nelson.���

BEST IN THE WORLD.
What an American Authority Says of
Canadian Dairymen.
London, Out., Jun. 18.���At a meeting of tho Westorn Ontario Dairymen's Association hero yesterday,
Hon, John Gould, spoclal agent of the
duiry department of tho 1'iiiteii Status
bureau of agricultural Industry In the
course of an uddress on "American
Dairying," said the Canadians wero
the best dairymen In the world. Prof.
Robertson, Dominion dairy commissioner, called uttentlon to thu bright
outlook whicli Canada enjoyed. He
said there wore more people In Canada today than there were In the
whole United States at the beginning
of the last century and now, through
the United States had seventy million
of people as a market for dally products, Canada today had a far bettor
chance for development than the United States hod then.

London Times' Views as to Probable
Action of Great Britain.
London, Jan. 18.���The Times in
the course of an editorial on tbe Nicaragua canal controversy quotes from
its New York correspondent, Mr.
Smalley, the statement, "I do not believe that a majority of intelligent
Americans either expect or desire
Great Britain to submit to what is
unmannerly." "It may be taken for
granted," continues Tne Times," that
In some form or other, Lord Lans-
downe will explain to President Mc-
Kinley and Secretary Hay tbat we do
not snare the senate views of the
freely repudiable character of an in
ternatlonul bargain and that we have
no intention of allowing the senate
to accept all we offered bv tbe liny
Pauncefote treaty, nnd then to take
all we retain as a condition of our
offer. It will only be necessary to recall the terms (of tbe agreement accepted a year ago with gratitude by
American statesman and to refuse to
assent to a wholly different Agreements, and to intimate that until
the agreement is ratified or other ion-
sonable proposals are courteouly presented by ;the American government
we shall continue to stand upon the
Clayton-Bulwer tidily. "

THE WAYFARING MAN
Though a fool Would Have to Draw the
Same Conclusion.
" 'Coffee soup1 was a common dish
on our table during my boyhood. My
family were farmers and we used to
have early breakfast, then a lunch at
10 and at 3 p. m., beside the regular
meals. We always had the coffee pot
on the Btove and 'coffee soup' was a
regular part of each meal.
"I very well remember when 11
yeais old, overhearing my teacher say
of me, 'the most nervous child I ever
saw.' I was a constant sufferer with
dyspepsia, sour stomach and indigestion in its worst form, belching, etc.
Finally a liver tronble came on and
I had three different atacks of gall
stone.
"In addition to this I was a complete nervous wreck, sleeping hut very
little at night. I was thin, sallow,
and exhausted, with a bllllous complexion. After all these years of suffering, when I reached the ago of
thirty it gradually dawned on rae,
three years ago, that I was a coffee
fiend and a coffee wreck.
"Some one told me to quit coffee
and go to using Postum Food Coffee.
I am .'. professional man now, dulnp; i
largo amount of mental work. Within u Bhort time after leaving off coffeo
and taking Postum Food Coffeo, 1
began to linprovo. Now I nm proud to
say tbat the indigestion and dyspepsia
have disappeared. The liver and stomach are sound. I sleep 1 ileu a log and
have gnlnt'd thirty pounds in flash,
"My spirits are at the top notch. I
nm fresh, rugged, and rosy. The old
dull, sallow complexion is gone. My
habits ore in every particular tho
same, as in the years before, except
that I have abandoned the coffee habit for all time. Am I not right in
drawing tho conclusion that the wayfaring man, though a fool, would
have to draw, that the change Is en-
tliely due to leaving off coffee and tho
use of Postum Food Coffee?
"I have a friend, Mr. Frank Fnr-
bush, who was as bad a wreck as I,
with like symptoms, plus excessive
nausea and vomiting. Six month, of
no coffee and the use of Postum has
put him right. He Is now as fresh
as a new born babe. His wife, who
was also a sufferer from coffee, has
recovered, and they are both in a fine
condition of health, but I was compelled to hold a coffin before them,
boforo I   could   scare
The playeis for tonight have been
finally selected as follows: Goal, Neelands; point, Archioald; cover, C.
Jeffs; forwards, Wetmore (captain)
Perrier, Nace and Joe Thompson.
"Bob" Carley will probably be selected to referee the game. The match
commences promptly at 8:30 o'clock
and the admission is 25 cents.
CDRLING CLUB MEETING.
Mayor Fletcher Will Give Prizes in   a
New  Tournament.
The curling club meeting took
place last night and was well attended. In opening Mayor Fletcher
volunteered to present individual
prizes to the members of the rink
winning in a new tournament. The
offer was promptly accepted and
the drawings for the series will be
made shoitly. The club also resolved
to give a consolation prize to be played for by the teams defeated in the
first series.
Invitations were received from bon-
splcl committees at Golden and Sandon requesting Nelson to send rinks
to the competitions. The members
conclnded that Golden was too distant
for Nelson to enter, but will he represented at the Sandon carnival. As
many rinks as can be formed will go
to Sandon and all players who will be
in a position to take in the trip are
requested to send in their names.

A GOOD THING.
German Syrup is the special prescription of Dr. A. Iloshee, a celebrated German Physician, and is acknowledged 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 oi years, giving satisfaction
in every case, which its rapidly increasing sale every season confirms.
Two million bottles sold annually.
Bosche's 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.

fiheo,lthe Palmist, Is Scoring a Oreat
Success���Hundreds Visit Her.
All day long yesterday crowds were
waiting in the parlors of Rheo, the
palmist. It seemed as though everybody was restless to have their palms
read, and one after another the long
string passed through the consultation
room, the majority emerging witb
broad smiles on their faces. Many
were turned away, unable to see the
noted palmist. There is nothing of
the gypsy   about  Rheo's   remarkable
readings. Her fee is 81.00 for a life
reading, and the truths Bhe tells you
are so startling and they come in such
quick rotation that one certainly gets
his money'B worth from this standpoint alone. She also tells you what you
are best fitted for in life and whether or net you will be successful; If
you should make business changes;
if you will travel; If you will bo successful in lova affairs If absent
friends will return; so, from a financial standpoint, one gets his mnnoy's
worth and Rheo gets the money. Parlors nt Mrs. Rellly's, Ward St., next
