T, c. Thompson and II. W. Ilcrch-
llncr, officials of the Crow's Nest Pass
I Coul company, were in Nolson yoster-
liinv mi their way to Oreenwood,where
lllii-y will watch tlie proceedings of
I the meeting of the Associated Hoards
of Trade of Southern British Columbia.
Interviewed by a representative of
The Miner, both gentleman volunteered some interesting information
regarding the controversy whicli is
now agitating the minds of the people of the west���the question of the
.smelters and the coal nnd coke supply���und stated whnt may be considered the case for the coal company.
"I deny," said Mr. Thompson,
"that there has been a shortage of
coal and coke from Crow's Nest for
the mines nnd smelters of liritish Columbia and that theie is any likelihood of there being any shortage.
There are five smellers In operation
in British Columbia, as follows-
Triiil, Granby, (Irecnwuod, Boundary
Falls and Nclsoii. The requirements
of the Trail smelter are 100 tons per
day; Oranby. 90 tons; Greenwood, 411
tons; Boundary Falls. ISO tons, nnd
Nelson, 26 tons. We are prepared to
enter Into contracts for the supply of
tnosc quantities at any time "
"How about the question of ashort-
*ige in the past, Mr. Thompson?" was
iked.
'In regard to that," Mr. Thump-
n replied, "tlio Trail smelter wired
us on the 21st of September asking a
reduction in the quantity of coke being sent tbem, from SO to SO tons.
Wc were shipping no coke to tlie
United Stutcs up to tlie '.'1st day of
February, 1000; nnd the reason why
contracts were entered into with thu
United States smelters was because I
the Trail smelter was the only customer whioh wc hud at that time.
As they cut us oft' on February 7, this
left us without a market for one
pound of coke, with 200 ovens burn-
iug sou! to make coke, which, as you
know, have to be kept going all the
time.
"Tho Trail smelter resumed coke
shipments on the 20th June last and
since then we have supplied tbem
with all that they could take, and in
July we shipped the Oranby smelter
some coke. We have never been
unable to meet tbe demand in British
Columbia. As it is at present we
nre producing 130 tons in excess of
the requirements eaoh day, which is
going to the United States." How
about the complaint of the Sliver
King people, who said the other day
tbat a shut-down was imminent, owing to a shortage of coke'."'
���"That," replied Mr. Thompson,
"was partly owing to a mix-up between the smelting and mining department of the Hall Mining tit Smelt
ing Co., Ltd ; but wo uro now billing
all the mining coal to tlie Silver
King mine, and the smelting coal to
the smelter. The Silver King is now
receiving plenty of joal. "
"How about transportation facilities; are tbey inadequate'."'
"They eertnlnly arc���particularly
between Kootenay, landing and Nelson. This prevents thu expeditious
handling of coal."
Asked as to the prospective development of the Crow's Nest coal property,
Mr. Thompson said: "We now have
the grading done and the stone quarried in preparation foe the erection
of _(io more ovens���and we have MO,-
000 lire brick en route from Pennsylvania. With tbe^neicase.l facilities
for production, our output will be
increased by 2(1(1 tons per diiv and this
would give a total output of 710 Ions.
This would more than till all existing
contractu in British Columbia nnd the
United Slates; nnd we will require
tti find a now market for a poition of
it.
"In regard to tlie statement that the
closing down of the Clreenwood smelter is imminent owing to a shortage,
I have  this  to  say;   Cuder   date of
requisitioned us for 40 tonjs pc. '���fy ��J-
with 500 tons for immediate shipment
for stock. Between the 28th and 31st
of January we shipped them (170 tons
and an average of 44 tons per day
since 1st of February, so they either
made a mistake in stating their requirements or have a stock on hand
at present.
"In respect to the Granby and
Boundary Falls smelters���On January 23 rd the lioundary Falls smelter
said their requirements would be 30
tons per day, commencing February
1st, whicli has been more than met by
a shipment ot two cars each day since
that date. This smelter, of course,
has not yet blown in. The Granby
smelter people on the 24th of January
asked for 00 tons per day, 'unless un-
forseen circumstances prevent.' Since
that date and during the whole of
December and January we have been
shipping nt the rate of 100 tons per
day thus assuring the Granby people a surplus stock."

DELAYED MAILS
More Instances of Inconveniences Suffered by Nelson
Business Men.
The publication in The Miner yesterday morning of certain complaints
in regard to the condition of affairs
in the Nelson postoffice caused many
business men to visit The Miner offlce
yesterday to relate further Incidents
and and to congratulate The Miner
upon having called attention to the
existing evils.
Mr. Eli Sutciiffe had a particularly
interesting story to tell. Bis father
had applied at the wicket for letters
and papers. The deputy postmaster
attended him, looked through the let
ters and informed him there were
none and then without looking
through the papers and packages Informed him also that there were none
of the latter. Sir. Sutciiffe, 8r., told
Eli Sutciiffe that he had not been
properly waited upon and the latter
visited the postofflce. He was told in
an offensive manner that some one
had already called for his mail and
further than that the deputy postmaster would pay no attention to
him, Then the next morning Mr. Sut-
clltt'e called upon Postmaster 01 lker.
Mr. (liliter listened to his complaint
looked through the papers and found
one which must have been iu the offlce
the evening be'ore when Mr. Sutciiffe
called. Mr. SutclifTe complained of
his treatment in the hands of the deputy postmaster and wbb told by Mr.
Gilker that he had better call for his
rauil when the young lady was at the
wicket, or in other words that Mr.
Sutcliff 5 must call for his mall when
it best suited the convenience of the
postotlice staff. Another time Mr.
Sutciiffe sent to Vancouver for two
pipe ambers. On a Saturday morning
lie received a letter stating tbat the
ambers bad been mailed at the same
time as the letter. He asked on Saturday if there were any packages and
wns told there were not. He asked
again on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, but still, according to the
poiitofflee clerk, there was no package.
Then he lnnilc a kick, a polite but
vigorous one. He admitted that if
the package wasn't there he could not,
of course, expect them to hand It out
to him. but he expressed his belief
that there wus in the Nelson postotlice a package addressed to him and
that if proper search were made It
could be found. The search was made,
and lo-and-bchold! the package
brought to view from the floor where
it hnd been probably since the previous Saturday, lfift the postotlice people didn't let Mr. Sutciiffe rest here.
lie hnd purchased some goods In the
cast and without any notification was
presented through the bank with a
sight draft for the amount of his bill.
Fortunately his overdraft editor had
been attending to his duties and the
draft was accepted and paid. Three
days latei he received a notice from
tho eastern firm that they were drawing on him at sight. The postmark
on the letter showed that It had
been in the Nelson postofflce for a
week beforc.it was delivered to him,
and lie bad culled at the postofflce at
least once every day whilo the letter
bad been there.
Further experiences of this kind
will be   related   by The  Miner  until
N.W.M.P. Report���Conserva
tlves Opposed to Preferential Tariff.
(SPECIAL TO TUB M1NKII.)
Ottawa, Feb. 27.���In the bouse today Robinson of Elgin moved a resolution that all companies thai bave
received, a franchise or aid from the
country should furnish members of the
house with free transportation upon
the certificate of the clerk of the
house, and that no mileage indemnity
be paid to members while in attendance upon their parliamentary duties.
Puttee of Winnipeg, supported the
resolution. He laid special stress on
the impression abroad that railway
legislation was facilitated in the
house through the influence of the
passes given by the railways to members. Mr. Richardson of Lisgar, did
not believe that legislation was
INFLUENCED BY PASSES.
He considered the government mileage allowance was intended to include, besides actual transportation
expenses, also cost of meals, Pullman, and perhaps tbe time lost. He
would have preferred that the resolution should read, simply to deduct
from the mileage allowance, the railway fare and allow the balance to go
to the members. However, he was
prepared to support the resolution aB
it was.
Mr. MacLean of East York, came
out vigorously against the practice of
members travelling on passes still
drawing their travelling* allowance
from tbe government. Mr. R. L.
Borden said he did not believe members were Influenced in their actions
on railway legislation by passes,
He did not lino tbe language of Robinson's resoli-.tion. He felt that publio opinion on the subject should be
considered. He thought it might
be better if members were to
PAY THEIR FARE
in the ordinary way. This expense
was made up at Ottawa. The Premier pronounced the proposed measure
a rather drastic one. It was imposing on the railways a duty for which
they would get no return. He held
it waB a tradition of British legislation not to compel tbe giving of services without compensation. Ownership was sacred and should not be invaded without compensation. Tlie
fact that subsidies had been granted
to railways was no argument in favor of the proposition. When they
got subsidies It was because of good
and sufficient reasons at the time.
He said there might be an evil, but
he agreed lt wbb not possible to find
that parliament had been influenced
by passes. In order that tlie whole
question might be fully considered he
moved tbe adjournment of the debute. The debate adjourned. ������
N. W.  M.    P. REPORT.
Tbe annual report of the Mounted
Police was submitted to paillament
today. In regard to orime, Commls-
soner Perry reported that 3(1 convictions were obtained out of 1,351 cases
entered, about 71 per cent. There
has been no startling increase of
crime and the state of the country
from a police point of view is very
satisfactory. Some owners in Southern Alberta complain of horses having
disappeared.
Under the head of "Indians," the
commissioner also says that the Indians maintain their reputation for
good behaviour. There is a steady
improvement In their condition and
on some reserves they havo now large
bands of cattle. During the early
months of the war In South Africa
disquieting rumors were abroad that
the Indians contemplated rising.
These had no foundation whatever.
There was sympathy for Boors among
some of tbe foreign settlements, but
it was of a purely ptatonic o der.
Syndey Porter of Moosejaw,has been
appointed homestead Inspector of Region district.
PREFERENTIAL TARIFF.
During  today's   sitting,   Mr. Mac-
Lean, East   York,  declared  that  the
the Nelson postollico   shows   signs   of
being conducted on a  business   basis. ' conservative   party were   opposed   to
tlie preferential tariff. The statement
was applauded by those who sat be
hind him. Mr. Sifton made reply to
MacLean.
The minister of finance, replying to
Clarke, said that to debar from the
advantages of the British preferential
clause articles partly manufactured
in Germany, or manufactured from
raw material giown or produced in
Germany, would be to debar many
British manufactures whioh depend
on foreign raw materials. However,
if the law was being evaded, the
government would look into tbe   sub
ject.

It is move than probable that they

H. O. Jennings, who has been working extensively on the Dean property

forced to erect a hoist, so that he

good Indication, and that he will find
the water issuing from an ore fissure.
London, Feb. 27.���General French's
most recent success, combined with
the advantages gained by the other
forces in South Africa, has created a
most hopeful feeling at the war ollicc
here. Lord Raglan, under secretary
for war, described it today as being
"the tbin edge of the wedge" and
this Is also the opinion of military
circles, who reiterate that while tho
war could not be expected to end
with a sudden stroke, this constant
capturing of men, guns, supplies nnd
horses meant that the operations
would soon be reduced to a Dacoit
stage.
General French is quite tlie
HERO   OF   THE HOUR
on Pall Mall, though, of course,   General   Kitchener's   controlling  hand is
recognized ui.d.;r   every circumstance.
It is felt by Mr    Broderick and   Lord
Roberts, that   so   long as  the British
forces are doing   something to diminish the Boer's   supply of men, mounts
and ammunition,   they   are achieving
the only possible   objective at present
In   sight.    It is hot   believed to be at]
all   likely   General      Kitcheuer   will j
grant any armistice as   a preliminary I
to peace, or if he does, he will not let I
the war offlce   know   of   it.    until he
learns the result.
In fact, small reliance is placed on !
suoh an offer, for even if General
Botha gave in, the war oflice is inclin-
ed to consider that his action would I
only affect the forces under his immediate individual command,and that
the same policy which is now being
pursued would have to be continued
against the other Boer forces opernt -
ing in vicinities far removed from the
Boer conimauder-in-cbief
PRESSING ON DEWET.
De Aar, Feb. 2(3.��� Thorieycroft's
column, when last heard from, was a
few hour's march behind Dewet. The
other columns have seemingly lost
touch with him, Hertzog, the Hocr
commander, is reported to have crossed the Orange river, and he appears to
be still inside the rectangle formed
by the railroad and the river.
BIG BATTLE   EXPECTED.
London, Feb. 2S.���liennet Burial***-,
wires to the Daily Telegraph from
De Aar nnder Tuesday's date us follows: "The Orange river remains
high. Cur columns are tightening
their grip upon Steyn, Dewet and
Hertzog near Petrusville, and our pn-
trols have been engaged. I anticipate
that a general action is admit to be
fought and that the collision Is likely
to prove serious.
HAS BOTHA SURRENDERED.
London, Feb. 27.���Tlie Daily Chron-
iolc,which has received a repent It believes trustworthy, though It has no
means of verifying it, tbat General
Botha bas surrendered to Lord Kitchener, says; "According to earlior information General Botha was to have
been received at Lord Kitchener's
camp about the end of this week. Hut,
if the foregoing rcpoit is correct
events have ripened with unexpected
rapidity."
K4MBEHLEY MINES.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Kimberley, Fob. 20,��� The North
Star mine shipped during last week,
42ti tons of ore. Tho Sullivan mine
shipped during last week 800 tons of
ore. The latter has ceased shipping
for a time. The exact reasons nre
unknown, but it Is surmised to be on
account of the fall In the price of
lend. Extensive underground development work is being enrried on and
will   continue for some time.
The Mount Sicker and 11. C. Development Co. have a good showing of
ore on their Quantrell propertyy, and
we trust thoy have struck thp right
place in which case another shipping
mine will soon be added to this camp.

NO MORE RECRUITS WANTED.
Ottawa. Feb. 27.���The militia department has sent out notices that
there arc more applications for positions on Baden-Powell's police force
than are requiied, so it is useless applying.
PUBLIC LIBEARY
Annual Report Was Presented
Yesterday���The Concert
Tonight.
The adjourned annual meeting of
the Public Library association took
place last night when the institution
was given a fair start on the new
year. It is hoped that certain suggested changes in tlie management
can be effected whereby the citizens
who have labored so earnestly to bring
the libraiy to its present condition of
usefulness, may be relieved of at least
a share of the anxiety attendant on*
tho financial management.
The officers for the ensuing term
are Judge Crease, president; Mrs. E.
C. Arthur. Vice-president; H. Bird,
secretary; Mrs. A. L. McCulloeli, secretary; directors, Mcsdumes Day,
II. Bird, P. Lamont,.K W. Uanning-
ton, nnd G. F, Beer, and Messrs. G.
V, Holt, Fred Irvine, R. R. Hedley,
J. H. Bowes, G. F. Beer and Frank
Fletcher.
The report of tbe last years' work as
presented by Mrs. McCulloch was as
follows;
During the past year the library
and rending rooms have been much
improved. Tbe rooms in the Broken
Hill block were found inadequate and
in May the library was moved to the
present moms on Victoria street which
are a very greot improvement. In
August Mr. Harrison, the librarian,
resigned and Miss Williamson was appointed, s^c lias efficiently diaunarg-
ed her duties. During the past year
the buying of books was left to a committee to secure the new hooks week
ly as they come out. This has been
found very satisfactory, and they have
bought 52 new books For thu con-
veu'enee of subscribers a catalogue
was printed which cau be obtained
from the librarian.
Last year tlicro weie only 10.9 subscribers to tlio library as compared
with 2!i3 111 1899, This decrease 1
think is due to tlie fuct that the canvas in 1000 wns not as thorough as in
1899. The attendance in the rending
and recreation rooms has Increased
very much. The highest monthly
attendance during ls'.in being 017
while in January 1901 the attendance
was '.' 000, an increase of 2,070, or
over BOO per cent. This proves without a doubt, tlio popularity and need
of an institution of the kind. It ia
encouraging to tlie directors and
should lulluence the city council to
either take over thu rooms or to give
the dliectors a liberal grant towards
the support   of the library.
The expenses for 1000 huve been
81.I7H. Our sources of revenue hnvc
been from subscribers to the library
8300, a grant from the city of WOO,
the proceeds of thu library ball 8110.
from tlie library carnivals, 8207; from
the Bale of magazines and fines 820;
making a total revenue of 81,2110.
The directors take this opportunity
of thanking tin* city council, the
public and the press for the llbuinl
support and patronage and trust the
new dircctorute will be successful in
securing a monthly grant from the
city and so make the future success ol
the reading room a certainty without the constant strain of financing
that the retiring board has experienced.

The summons Issued sets forth that
the presence of the party named Is
required "to testify what you know

Once again the cables bring tlie

THE   PO8TOFFIOE1    -      -
In its news columns yestirlay The
Miner published some information
about the operation of the local post
Olllce which is hardly calculated to
enhance the reputation which Nelson
bears for being an up-to-date town.
Ample testimony is offered that the
postotlice is miserably managed and
that the delays and inconvenience
caused tbe public in consequence are
simply scandalous. There seems no
special reason why this sort of thing
should be tolerated meekly. The post-
master and his staff may be very excellent people���no doubt tbey are; but
if tbey are incompetent or handicapped by any circumstances which prevent tnem from giving the publio a-
good service, the sooner that fact is
discovered the better. The Miner has
no inclination to pose as a grumbler;
but these complaints about the opera
tion of the postofflce are so persistent
and so specific, that it would be derelict in its duty if it did not take-cognizance of them. What is to be done'.1
Are tho people of Nelson to suffer
from this inconvenience interminably-?
.Surely it is not unreasonable .to ask
that the inspector give some attention
11 this public protest against a grievance whicli bears heavily upon the
people! The Miner promises that-it
will not "cease from troubling" until a remedy shall have been provided.
A number of��C'hinese oflicials have
been beheaded. Good! Let the good
work go on, and. in tlio language of
.tbe.immortal bard, "damned be he
.who first cries hold I enough '. "
Mrs. Nation has taken to editing a
newspaper. . That ..settles. . if. The
hatchet campaign j/s ,yyor, for she
will now realize that editors are as
much iu need of philanthropic caro
aud attention as tin- class in whoso
interest she has been; so industrially
laboring.   	
The joyful news is hashed across
the continent fiom Ottawa that the
members of tlie Chinese commission
are preparing to start for the coast to
begin the investigation' Which has
been entrusted 16 them. Another message will no doubt be received when
the start has actually been made.
lt would i.ot be at all surprising if
the,story that Lord Kitchener has met
lieneral Botha to arrange for the surrender of the Boers should prove true,
as it can only be a question of a short
time jn. any event before the Beers in
the field will see tlie hopelessness of
the struggle nnd throw up the sponge.
THE   GREENWOOD   CONVENTION.
Todny tbe Associated Boards ot
Trade of Southern British Columbia
will hold their annual meeting at
Greenwood. It will prove a very im-.
portant convention, and much will,
depend upon the result of the deliberations. Perhaps the most iali'ri'stiug
question which will uome up for cnn��-
sideration is" that of the smelters, the
coal and coke supply and the application for a charter for a railway:
from the Crow's Nest coal fields south
to the boundary line. Both sides of
the great controversy which bus engaged public attention for many weeks
will no doubt be ably presented ami
full information given so that a wise
decision may bo ariived at. We take
it that the fate of the application
for the charter hangs on the nature
of that decision. Certainly it will
havo great weight both at Victoria
and Ottawa, as it is a reasonable assumption that the people of the districts affected know what they want
and will say so. In another column
is published an interview with repre,
sentntives of the coal company who
state their side of tlie caie. The decision of the meeting on this very Important question will be awaited with
profound Interest.
W. W. _���'. Melnnes, M. P. P., is
reported tb have ' commenced "orating" in the legislature. Those who
are compelled to be present during
'the'egojisltcal and bombastic eruption are to be pitied. It is a matter
for regret that an act cannot be> Introduced for the permanent suppres.
sion of the Mclnnesses.
The suggestion has been made that
steps ought to be taken to ensure the
proper measurement of cord-wood under the-direction of a civic official,
This is a good idea. No one, wo are
sure, will desire to see the wood dealers bankrupt themselves by throwing
in extra measurement, as is now said
to be the practice in Nelson.

these are known coal fields. What
are some of the Nelson people doing

with all the coal thoy will buy? That
would Vancouver Island today be
without its foreign markets'.' -.Wales,
Scotland and North England, do an
enormous export trade. Belgium and
France are competing for this trade.
India, Japan and Australia are opening up coal fields for the export trade.
We want to see' British Columbia

There is every reason to believe that

Strong pressure is being exorted to
have Premier Iliiiismuir cany out tho
promise he made his supporter! when
he assumed otllcu regarding rccon
slructlon. It is generally understood
that the changes will include the retirement of Hon. J, 11. Turner, who
will tnko tlie post of agent-genera!
in London.
Mr. John Dillon, Irish Nationalist,
is making a pretty spectacle of himself in tlio Imperial honse of commons. He charges the British with
acting inhumanely towards the liners
In (South Africa, which is of course
untrue; but how any man enn stand
up in defence nf a people who fiendishly used the white (lag to murder
British soldiers nnd afterwards flogged
and assassin.'!ted peace envoys, passes
comprehension.
A fitting aftermath of the peace
conference is fvrnjs-lied in .: the ..announcement just made in tho British
house of commons that the army and
niivy estimates for this year will
break all records in the immensity
of tlie. appropriations. The occasion
seems ripo for another edict from the
Czar of ltussia,advocating the turning
of swords into pruning books.
Nolson is to be ongratulatcd for
having made such an excellent showing in the number of recruits sent

Carrie Nation would bo a great

Western Canada will feel very much
disappointed if it should prove true,
as bus boon stated, that thoir Royal
Highnesses tliu liiilin and Duchess of
Cornwall and Vork,on their approaching- visit to Canada, will land at Halifax and only visit the Eastern provinces. Every effort should be made
to have the programme changed so

be overlooked. i

WHITE MICE ARE HIS PLAGUfi.
lullliilIcntlon   ol n l'nlr  I.  Drlvlaat
Their Owner to In.aiilty.
Two men met on La Salle street.
"Hello!" ejaculate!! ono of them.' "Seen
till,  Tom?"    The other man  shook  bis
I head. C     I .     ii       a :��� j. I _
"No, not 111; .not physically ill, Jack.
I It's���it's white mice."
"Great  heavens!"  gasped   his  friend.
I "Why,  I didn't  know  you ever drank
; enough for���for that!"
j    "lt wasn't drink, Jack, it wasn't drink.
But come with me.   Let me tell you all."
When they wore sented nt opposite Bides
of a Ki11n.ll table, the alllicted man coutin-
ued; ." 1
"Yes, Jack, Ifs white mice, .My hoy,
Thomas, Jr., got it into his head that lie
ought to have a pet. He wanted a dog,
but the bouse is small, nnd the cook is
nervous, and so wo told him no, uot a
dog, most anything but a dog, nnd we
finally coniprornlsod on a pair of white
mice. I brought them home in a nice,
roomy wire cage, and Thomas, Jr., was
delighted. That was two months ago."
The speaker pausedaud sighed feelingly.
"Well, nil went finely uutll about three
weeks afterward. .Theii one morning the
boy came bursting .into my room to inform me that, the 'mires had got soma
lovely little mlces.' And so they had;
fiveof them. Luckily the cage was large
enough for the growing family. But-
well, in four weeks we hnd 47 mice, in
six weeks 100. We gov* up trying to
accommodate them all in oue cage, and
so cigar boxes, work baskets, cracker
tins and even the bathtub were brought
Hilto requisition, �����
"Nuturally, two or three escaped every
day uml lived at large, feasting In the
pantry nt night and begging by onr chairs
nt monl time. They took such a liking to
the cook that they got to making her
room a sort of meeting place. Tlie result
could have been foreseen. My wifo has
been doing the cooking now for several
weeks. I have got so that 1 Bhake my
boots from fores of hifbit before putting
them on. One: nio-gping. I foimd i twop th
my shaving mug. And w�� hive them
served up to us at table in the cracker
jur, the sugar bowl and the cheese dish."
"But why didn't you get cats'/" asked
his friend.     .*��
"Cats? Great heavens! We've had 20
of them. We can't keep them about.
They stay three or four days, get so fur
that they can't walk, and then crawl dejectedly to the door, accompanied by n
frisking contingent of whits inlesi We've
tried cats, Jock."
"Well, then, rat jralson; turn yon tried
that?"
"Oh, yes; auita early In the game. The
mice seemed to thrive on that poison. We
tried traps, too. They caught a few, just
a drop in the bucket. And all the time
they kept right on increasing. We haven't
taken a census for nearly three weeks
now, but a, moderate estimate would
place the number at about 000. Just
now, when I met you, I was on the way
to sec a maa- who has ferrets. 1 shall try
to get n few dojen good, healthy ones. If
they don't help��� What's that?" he
shrieked.     "    ' *'"
"What's -what?" asked his filcnd.
"That? Why, just a piece of white paper!"
"Oh, I���I thought��� Well, 1 must get
on. I don't suppose you'd care to buy
that house, would you? No? Well,
good by." ������-..-> .;*
And the roan afflicted with white mice
crept dejectedly around the corner,'looking nervously at every piece of. tprn: paper thnt fluttered in the breeze.���Chicago

SHE GOT HER MONEY.
The story of a Juvenile*. Joke and
ike Sale Thereof.
One day the 11-year-old daughter of n
Journeyman humorist sat down in cold
blood to build a joke. Her. unconscious.
humor had brought many shekels into tlie
house, for she was a bright child, ami her
papa was too good a business manager to
allow salable jokes to go uusold. This
joke, however, Was prepared by the humorist's daughter with the idea of putting it on the market, and the humorist,
recognliing*lll'W'k commercial volne, ticked It off ou his .typewriter and sent it to
market.
By great good fortune the Joke found
favor in the eyes of the editor, who remitted $2 in payment therefor.
"Frances," said her father, when the
check came, "I have Bold your joke,
Here is half a dollar for you."
Frances was happy. She told everybody of her literary success. Sho also
told her mamma.
"Frances," said mamma, "papa got
more thun 60 cents for your joke."
"Did he?" said Frances.
Then she went after papa.
"Pupa, how much did the editor pay
you for my joke?" she asked.
"Two dollars."
"Aud you gave me 50 cents of it?"
"Yes, but you see I hnd to do the work
of typewriting it, and mailing it, and
paying postage, and sending stamps for
its return iu case It was uot available."
"1 see."
Frances went away. Presently she returned.
"Pnpn," sli* said, "you charge a high
commission for selling jokes, don't you?"
Pupa mnde no verbul reply. He took
Jl.tiu from his pocket and handed it to
her.
She put a dollar carefully in her littlt
purse am] handed CO cents back to her
papa,
"I think that's about right," she said.���

A country rector was showing a pnrty
of his pai-lBhloners over the rectory, when
thoy cume to a small room full of eurios.
Pointing to an nnnlct of dull gold, the
clergyman remarked:
"That ornament was found in a tomb
In Mexico, Central America. The tomb
wus probably 1,000 years old."
An old fellow standing by fidgeted,
Scratched his head and then remarked:
"Scuse mc, sir. They must 'nv* 'ad

ago, let alone 1,000."���Answers.

THE GITY i
A CORRECTION���
It was erroneously stated in Tlit

the sidewalk gang went to work.

GOT HER OOFFEE
And It Pulled Her Out-
"Doctor after doctor said I should
not drink strong colfee. It struci< me
as peculiar that this advice should he
so universal,
I have been a school teacher, and a
few years ago began to feci I was
pretty well worn out and nervous,
found that I was depending more and
more upon my coffee to carry me
through my day's work. Many times,
when teaching in a boarding school,
I have asked the matron for a cup of
coffee "sti-ong" because 1 felt I could
not get through the recitation without it.
Of course, I was living on borrowed
strength, and two years ago the
physical crash came. Nervous prostration and neurasthenia, For weeks
I could not even walk or stand alone
The physician said it would be
two or three years before I could recover so as to bo able to do anything.
My appetite was gone. I could not
sleep, and I was in a desperate condition, nervous and otherwise.
I was wanting coffee very badly,but
it was kept from me. One morning
about three weeks after the break
down,the nnrse brought me a cup of
coffee, of delicious flavor. 'May I have
it'." I exelalined, 'Yes. the Dr. says il
will not hurl yon now.' I eould not
understand it and did not liy. but
just drank the coffee, and had it every
morning after that.
My appetite began to return with
the first cup. and I had been enjoying
it for a month or more when Bister
said. 'Does your coffee taste as good
as it did before yon were sick'." 'Oh
yes,' said.'It never tasted better,' 'Is
it   strong   enough   lo   suit   yon'."     1
said, 'it could not be Improved.' 'Do
you know,' she said, 'You are no��
diinklug Mocha or Java, hut Postum
Food Coffee;' and so it was, every
graiu ol it,
I had often scoffed at Postum Food
Coffee before 1 knew of its value,
and its delicious flavor.
It has boon a saviour to me. Instead of waiting two or three years to
recover strength, I am now In good
working condition six months after
the break down and feel better than
I have   In-   ten   years  past."   S.   W.
U ..   Everett, Wash.    Full   name
given by_ Postum Cereal Co., Battle
Creek, Mich.
There is a reason for such rapid recovery. Postum Food Coffee contains
the natural phosphate of potash and
albumen from the grains of the Held,
which nature has sent for the use of
humanity in the body. These materials combine in the human system and
go to make np the gray matter that
fills the nerve cells in the brain and
all through the structure. We must
furnhh proper materials if we would
build the proper body.
You can get those materials in a
delicious form in Postum Food Coffee.
LICENSE COMMISSIONERS���
A meeting of the license commissioners was held on Tuesday at whicli
John Cosgrave'8 license for the Valley
hotel near Ymir,  whs transferred to
A. Anderson. Another meeting of
the commissioners will be held on
March 14, nt which nn application
from Erie will be dealt with.
STILL IN CHARGE���
Captain Fitzstllbbs is still in charge
of the provincial jail as warden, official notice of the government's action
in appointing R. B. Lemon to the
past not having been received as yet.
Another vacancy has occurred at the
jail through the resignation of George
Partridge, turnkey, who is leaving
for South Africa with the constabulary contingent.
WANT A CAPTAIN-
Nelson company, Rocky Mountain
Rangers held a meetirg at the armory
last night and in the course of the
session a petition was drawn up requesting II. E. Macdonnell, travelling
freight agent of the C, P. R., to accept
the captaincy of the company. The
members agreed to accord Mr.Macdonnell hearty and undivided support in
event of his accepting the position.
The petition will be presented   today.
A FINE RESIDENCE���
Captain Charles W. Busk of Kokanee creek was in the e.ty yesterday
arranging for the erection of a handsome residence at his fruit ranch.
The building is to he completed as
early as possible at a cost of some
83,000. Other improvements are to be
made at the ranch this year. Captain
Busk is also arranging to have the
steamer Angerona raised. He proposes to tako the machinery out of
the craft  and build a new  hull.
TO THE CONVENTION���
A number of representatives of
boards of trade throughout the Nelson
and East Kootenay districts were in
the eity last night en route to Greenwood to attend the Associated Boards
of Trade meeting. Among these
were: .lames Ryan and Aichie Leitch,
of Cranbrook; G. 0. Buchanan, A.
W. Goodenough and Mayor O. A.
Carlson of Kaslo; C, F Hannington
and James T. Laidlaw of Fort Steele,
and J. P. Farrell and Lewis Thomson
of Moyie.
FOUR MONTHS, HARD���
James Bcaniieu was sentenced to
four months imprisonment in the
provincial jail at yesterday's police
court. Tlie charges of stealing a
dresser from a neighbor's shack and
of stealing a dog belonging to D, McKay were both proved to the hilt and
Judge Crease imposed a sentence of
three months for the first and one
month for the second offence. His
Worship holds strongly that a snack
must be respected in the same degree
as any residenco in the city, and is
determined to put an end to the petty
larcenies from shacks dining the
owners' absence.
LACROSSE MATTERS-
A report Is OtirrOtlt here Hint u numbel- of the members of the New Westminster lacrosse team, who were
counted on for the All-British Columbia team to play In Australia, have
decided not to take the trip and that
the Vacancies thus occasioned are being tilled by selection from junior
coast teams. If tins is correct the
AIi-H. C. team will not get much support In the Nelson district. Two
members or the Nelson team, Arthur
Perrier and Dan McNichol, are fast
enough for any company nnd would
probably like to take in the tour. If
the team ib to travel as an All-It. C.
aggregation, the Kootenays should
be represented, and this is tlie concensus of local opinion.
THOS. PARKINSON LEAVES.
At the close of the regular Young
People's meeting at the Baptist churcii

regret at the departure of Mr. Tbos.
Parkinson fiom tho city." Although
it had only become known at a late
hour on Monday that h.* was about to

List of Accepted Applicants   For   Baden-Powell   Constabulary.
The recruiting in Nelson for the
South African constabulary is practically concluded. With the exception
of a few late applicants who may be
taken on to swell the quota, the local
contingent is as follows:

Yesterday morning Lieutenant Beer
had the entire outfit on the recreation grounds for the riding test. A
spirited horse was provided and all
the men were required to mount and
circle around the grounds. It waa
not expected that the volunteers would
prove to be expert riders, the majority of them having been engaged for
a longer or shorter period in occupations which do not demand expeiience
in the.saddle. If a man demonstrated
that he had some knowledge of
horses and was not timid in the saddle the inspecting officers were satisfied that he would do for the corps.
Not one of the men failed to come up
to the standard, and tho shooting test
in the afternoon was equally satisfactory.
The Rossland contingent arrives
this morning in charge of acting-Sergeant Gannoway, late of tlie Scots
Greys. They remain here until time
to go aboard the boat for Kootenay
Landing where further facilities for
handling the contingent have been
made.
Lieutenant Beer accompanies tbe
squad to Foit Steele where he will
wind up the recruiting in the Nelson
district.
Sorry to Leave Nelson   But Likes His
New Position.
Captain J. W. Troup returned to
Nelson last night after a month's trip
to the east. After being apprised of
his appointment to the superintend-
ency of the 0. P. N. steamship line,
Capt. Troup went to the Atlantic
coast and was there a week or so -in
connection with his new post. He
will remain here for a few dnya or until Mr. Downie, his SUCSeSBor, arrives
from the coast. This is a matter of
four of five days, after which the Captain will <;o to Vancouver and take
bold of bis new position.
Captain Troup is not by any means
dissatisfied with tlie change of olliee.
A substantial promotion is involved
and his duties will be in a department with which he is thoroughly
familiar besides which he has a preference for the sea coast, although asserting that if, required to live inland he know of no place more desirable as a residence than the Queen
City of the Kootenays. Mrs. Troup
and family will not reniovo from the
eity in the immediate future.
The Canadian Pacific Navigation
company, of which Captain Troup
will be in charge, in an impoitant
affair. Tbe fleet has a large aggie
gate tonnage and the service, aside
from the Vaneouver-Skagway route,
embraces the west coast of Vancouver Island and, more or less,the mainland coast. In connection with the
railroad a system tlie steamer service
promises to grow to large dimeusions.

W. J. THOMPSON'S SEND-OFF.
Last Night's Smoker   a Complete Sue
cess in Every Way.
The smoking concert at the opera
houBe last night in honor of ex-Chief
W. J. Thompson was fully as succeBB-
fuly as the similar affair accorded the
remaining members of the constabulary contingent on the previous even
ing. The house was well filled and
the audience ready and anxious to be
p'eased. Good fellowship had the
upper hand throughout and the coi
cert cannot be described otherwise
than as a success. City Clerk Struchan
occupied the chair and announced an
excellent programme. A special fea
tare was a three round go with gloves
between Dick Slugg, the local welter
weight and Harry Watkins, a colored
lad from Winnipeg. The latter was
well set up and a neat boxer The
two gave tlie fastest exhibition of
sparring yet seen in the building and
won rounds nf applause by their clever
work. Watkins afterwards did a sand
dunce turn which made a hit with
tho audience.
At the close of the proceedings May
or Fletcher presented Mr. Thompson
with a handsome lariat, as a toiteu
of the esteem in which he was held
by Ills friends. The ex-chief acknowledged the gift In an extremely neat
and happy speech.

QUESTION   ANSWERED.
Yes.August Flower still has the lar
gest sale of any medicine in the civilized world. Your mothers and grandmothers never thought of using anything else for Indigestion or Biliousness. Doctors were scarce, and they
seldom heard of Appendicitis, Nervous
Prostration or Heart failure, etc
They used August Flower to clean out
the system and stop fermentation of
undigested food, regulate the action
of the system, and that is all they
took when feeling dull and bad witb
headaches and other aches. You only
need a few doses of Green's August
Flower, in liquid form, to make you
satisfied there is nothing serious the
matter with yon. For sale bv W. 1<
