WON TIE CONTEST
Montreal Victorias Defeated
the Winnipeg Team-
GREAT HOOKEY MATCH
The Wiimipeggers Led Until Two Minutes
Prom the End, When the Mont-
realers Scored Two Game*-.
Montreal, Pel). 15.���The hockey
championship of the -world was the
bone of contention between the Victorias .of Winnipeg and the Victorias
of Montreal, tonight. The two finest
toanis in the world, the two that reduced hockey to nn exact soionce, lined
up against one another iu the presence
of six thousand wildly enthusiastic
Hpectators. It was the young west
against the old east. Three years ago
the same Winnipeg club sent out from
the west seven athletes who wrested
from Montreal the championship of
tbe world. A year later the vanquished
easterners journeyed westward and in
the most exciting game the hookey
world had, till that time, witnessed,
won back the title and the Stanley
cup, which is emblomatio of the chaui
pionship. Last -winter the Victoria!-
decided to go after the cup and, at a
consequence the team came to Mont
real and the first of a series of thret
games was played tonight. The nexi
will be played on Saturday evening.
No more exciting struggle could be
imagined than that which took plan
tonight. The Winnipeggers wen
ahead until the last couple of minutes
when the Montrealers, with one of
thoso finishes that have made then
famous, secured two goals and so woi
tbe first round. It was a great gam*
and both teams played absolutely perfect hockey.
The following bulletins, whioh give
running account of the game,   were   i*
ceived by the Miner eaily last evening:

ADRIFT   AT   SEA
SalLOES OF A WRECKED SHIP SUFFER GREAT HARDSHIPS.
Oast Upon a Barren Ialand,Th��y are Without Food or Drink for
Two Days.
Savannah, Ga., Feb. 15.���Every
member of the crew of the wrecked
steamship William Lawrence was
saved but only after the greater
number of them had suffered terribh
hardships, The tugs Cambria and
Cunthia came in this evening frorr
the Sea Islands of South Carolin;
bringing with them Captain A. L
Willis and 13 men, constituting
those who had been missing sine.
Sunday morning, when the ship wa-
abandoned in the breakers off Pori
Royal Bar, The tugs left the cit\
at daybreak this morning am
searched every island and inle;
northward until the castaways wer.
found at 9 o'clock on Hunting is
land. After 12 hours at sea in :-.
blinding gale, the two boats, nndes
the Captain and first officer, made
land on Capers Island, a desolate and barren little sand spot. In
beaching both of the boats were
smashed and the men were thrown
into the surf. Though almost exhausted they managed to scramble
beyond the reach of the waves
What little drinking water they ha.
was lost, together with the buiscuits.
There was no fresh water and extremely little fuel on the island and
no shelter. The captain had a few
matches in a metallic box and tearing the seats out of wrecked boats
a fire was made. Boats were also
of iron or they also would have
been burned, The men hovered
over the blaze during the sleet and
snow storm of Sunday and Monday.
On Tuesday one of the boats was
patched up and both crews got into
it and endeavored to reach Port
Royal. They had been without food
and water since Sunday. After
painful efforts they reached Hunting Island, where some soldiers,
who were stationed there, took them
in and fed and warmed them,
PANNING OUT WELL.
Ottawa, Ont., Feb. 15.���A letter
received here from Moore, McFar-
lane & Co., of Ottawa, in the Klondike, states that thera mine on
Dominion Creek is turning out $275
per pan when bed rock was reached.
This firm has a number of mines.
BONSPIEL NEARLY OVER.

Remunerative-
London, Feb. 16.���The Melbourne correspondent of the Times
says: The Samoan correspondent
of the Melbourne Argus writes that
the only solution of the difficulties
there lies in the immediate annexation of the islands by Great Britain.
He says the natives throughout the
entire group are almost unanimously
favorable to such a step and it is
also ardently desired by the British
and American residents. Failing in
annexation, the complete disarmament of the whole population is imperative, and in the opinion of the
correspondent of the Argus,the abolition of the kingship is also absolutely necessary to prevent constant
disturbances. The rival chiefs, he
says, would be satisfied if appointed
to rule their own districts with small
salaries.
REPORTED DISASTER.
A Grand Trunk Train Said to Be
Ditched in Quebec.
Portland, Maine, Feb. 15.���It is
reported here that a Grand Trunk
train, after breaking away from the
engine, was ditched at a point south
of Sherbrooke, Que. Several persons are reported killed. The train
is supposed to be that which left
here at 8 a. m. for Montreal.
REMEMBERED   THE    MAINE.
New York, Feb. 15.���A year ago
today the United States Battleship
Maine was blown up in the harbor
of Havana and 266 American seamen lost their lives. The event was
remembered in this city today.
Flags were flying at half mast
on the city hall, the public schools
and other buildings. Nearly all the
vessels in the harbor had flags at
half mast and on stores were pictures of the ill-fated battleship with
the phrase "Remember the Maine."
MADE HIMSELF UNPOPULAR.
London, Feb. 15.���The Constantinople correspondent of the Standard says: During the recent festival of Biarme, M. Oscar, the American minister, insisted on the custom house being opened to enter a
cargo of flour from the United
States. After some difficulty his request was complied with, but the incident caused great annoyance in
Turkish circles.
ANOTHER MAINE.
Philadelphia, Pa., Feb. 15.���The
anniversary of the blowing up of
the battleship Maine was marked
here with the beginning of work on
the powerful man-of-war which will
bea the name of the historic battleship. The new Maine will be built
by the Cramp Ship Building Co ,
and at the company's yards. At 11
o'cloek the first piece of keel was
laid.

ETRTJRIA--MARBLEHEAD
Th�� Engines of the Former  Were   Rt-
versed Just in Time to Avert
a Great Disaster-
New York, Eeb. 15.���In addition
to the many more or less apprehensive incidents attending a voyage of
one continuous buffeting b/ heavy
and strong gales, the passengers of
the Cunard liner Etruria, which arrived yesterday had the exciting experience on Monday morning of narrowly escaping a collision with the
United States cruiser Marblehead.
At 10 o'clock on the morning named,
when about 70 miles from Sandy
Hook, the officers on the bridge of
the Cunarder were start'ed by the
apparation, as Captain Ferguson
described it, of a large vessel looking out of the thick clouds of driving sleet and snow on the port bow,
only a few lengths ahead of the
Etruria and making directly across
the bows of the latter vessel. Chief
Officer Barr was the officer on the
watch and was on the bridge with
Captain Ferguson, Instantly Mr.
Barr, divining the danger that
threatened, signalled to reverse the
engines, then when the vessel had
slowed down to a standstill, the order was givor. to go full speed
ahead with the helm hard-a-star-
board. The Cunarder passed under
the stern of the Marblehead, So
close, in fact, were the two vessels
that, despite the mist, the officers
on the bridges waved their hands to
one another. Captain Ferguson, of
the Etruria, was averse to saying
much about the escape, but he remarked that if his vessel had struck
the Marblehead abeam, as would undoubtedly have happened, if the engines had not been reversed, the
cruiser must assuredly have gone
to the bottom.
Speaking of his passage, Captain
Ferguson said it was the worst he
had ever made in the many years oi
his experience. "The trouble
was," he said, "the gales were continuous.
"As a rule when we had a bad
voyage we ran into a little gale
lasting, perhaps, twenty-four or
thirty hours. Then we have a spel'
of fine weather before striking another gale, but on this trip it was
nothing but gales and high seas
right straight along from the time
we left the Irish coast. The spray
was so thick as to be likened to
nothing more appropriate than frozen fog."

The Grind Goes Steadily on at San
Francisco.
San Francisco, Oa!., Feb. 15.���The
sensation of the day in the six day race
waa the rank (putting of Earl B. Stevens, the Buffalo boy. He withdrew in
the early morning hours. HiB trainer
whipped him book to the track once.
but he sneaked out again, and when
examined by competent men wasfouud
perfectly sound and in excellent shape
to go on, he actually ay dowr. on the
floor and would not be carried out
Stevens claimed that he was going a 1
o pieces, but during his atays on the
track ont-spriuted all the riders, including Miller, Baruaby and Gimm. The
moment his trainer gave it up as a bad
job, Stevens donned his street clothts
uud walked from the buildlig. An
other feature of the early morning was
the superb riding of Barnaby, who is
rapidly becoming a factor in the con.
test. Hannah also quit. Bis quitting
was due to a poor stomach which
would hold no food. He rode 10 hours
on an empty stomach. Waller is
broken hearted over his being forced to
withdraw on account of his eyes. Ash-
inger'a stay on his wheel for 400 miles
and seven iaps without a dismount
strained the old man and he has not
kept np his reoord.    The race is but a
1 quarter over, but the present field will
' probably stay to the close.

Valuable Models  of War Ships Among
the Artioles That Were
Destroyed.
New York, Feb. 15.���Four alarms
were turned iu tonight for a fire i
machine shop No. 28 in the Brooklyn
Navy Yard. It was a three story
building built in the sixties and full of
old laths and old machinery. Tl e
woodwork of the building was so wc 1
saturated with oil that the flames made
great headway and tlie bui'ding wi s
apparantly doomed before the flrem* 11
got the streams playing on it. It is
situated at the east gate of the yar1.
Chief Engineer Windsor's office was 11

done there was some small work for
tne torpedo boats. The coppersmiths'
shop, the boilermakers' shop, the car-
renters' shop and the foundry we*e
soon in flames and burning fiercely.
The haze in the machine shop began at
6:30 o'cloek, at 8:10 the building was a
total loss. A portion of the building
wbb occupied as a patters shop. In this
building were stored and kept patterna
and models of the various warships
built from time to time. All of these
models and patterns were destroyed
Loss is estimated at $1,000,000 at the
lowest, and it is probable that it will
reaoh a higher figure as all ot the patterns and models were expensive of
construction. The loss of the buildivg
is placed at f350,000, on machinery

ABOUT BY
RAGING TEMPESTS
Hamburg   Liner    Pretoria
Without a Rudder,
LARGE PASSENGER LIST
Terrific Gales Were Encountered and the
Steamer Drifted Hopelessly for
Some Days���Safe in Port.
Plymouth. Eng., Feb. 15.���The Hamburg-American Bteamer Pretoria, Captain Keppf, which sailed from Hamburg
on January 29th for New York and whioh
was reported pnased Lizard January 31,
arrived here todaj, towed in by tugs.
The Pretoria encountered a heavy soiith-
-ly gale ou February 3id, during
which the rudder shaft broke. It was
temporarily repuired and Captain Keppf
decided to return thenoe to this port.
A succession of gales were met, through
all of which the Pretoria was
steered by meani< of her twin screws with
the assistance of hand gear. The 555
passongers on board the Pretoria had an
exciting expeiienoe. The outlook at
times was extremely gloomy but at no
time was there a panic. When the rudder shaft broke in the gale of February
3rd, the Petrol ia bore to the southward
for two days, on king the route of the
eastward bound vessels. On the fourth
she sj oke tlie German steamer Bengalis,
from Hamburg on January '��) for Baltimore, aud informed her of the accident.
Ou the fifth the Pretoria shaped her
course for Bi '��� >p's Rock, 'CI- miles distant. Attempt,, at lepairing were futile.
A severe hurricane on the sixth caused
great anxiety. The seas ran very high
and oil was poured on the water. The
bnrrioane contiuued for two dayB during
which time the steamer made only sixty
miles, as her engines had to be stopped
in tte big seas. Daring the remainder
of her trip to Plymouth a succession of
stormB was encountered.
DOING THEIR   BEST.
Treaty Between Canada and the States
Probable.
Chicago, Feb. 15.���A special to the
Times-Herald from Washington says ;
Great Britain and the United States
are to have a closer bond of friendship.
The joint high commission which
cauie perilously near breaking up in a
rupture Mouday will probably oon-
ilnde a treaty after all. The United
States commissioners instead of presenting au ultimatum as the Canadians wished, submitted a tnemorau-
um concilatory in tone offering certain
rights at Skagway and suggesting further negotiations.
Tho possibility of effeoting an agreement was also advanced by a cablegram received by Baron Herachel from
Joseph Chamberlain, England's minister for the colonies, directing the
Canadian commission to exhaust every
effort to reach an amicable agreement
keeping in mind the importance of
promoting the present cordial relations
between the United States and Great
Britain.
After a brief session the joint high
commission adjourned until noon today and the Canadian commissioners
retired to consider tho memorandum
of the United States. As a mult of
the conference a prominent member of
that commission stated that the stay
of his eollengiies iu Washington will
be prolonged,

GETTING   READY.
Mr. Hume has carried his RiUin
by a largely increased majority, but
the fact will hardly reconcile the
Government to the somewhat precarious situation in which they find
themselves. We quite expect
therefore, that there will be no interruption to the preparations for a
general election which Ministers are
understood to have been making
for some time past. Oui information is to the effect that there will
be a dissolution of the present
House soon after the close of the
session, and that on or before June
next the Province will be called
upon to elect a new one.
It is in anticipation of this event
that the Legislature is now being
asked to make such sweeping
amendments to the Eleetions Act.
Ministers are endeavoring to make
the way easier to success, and to
this end propose to disfranchise
large classes of voters who have
heretofore taken part in elections.
This expedient is no doubt the suggestion of the Attorney-General,
who experienced its advantages
during his meteoric career in Manitoba. It is proposed to enact that
"no Judge of the Supreme or
"County Court, no Sheriff or Der-
"uty Sheriff, no employe of the
"Provincial Government who is in
"receipt of a salary of at least $25
"per month, no sailor, mariner, or
"soldier in the Imperial service, and
"no officer in the Imperial service
"on full pay, shall be entitled to
"have his name placed upon the
"register of voters for any electoral
"district." Mr. Martin was the
author of a similar provision in the
Manitoba law, and he is doubtless
the author of this.
Whether by hook or by crook,
the Government are determined to
carry the next elections. We do nol
know that civil servants are numerous enough in any constituency to
sway an election, but they are understood not to be in sympathy with
the Government and that is considered reason enough for depriving
them of the franchise. Included with
the civil servants in this prohibition
are the school teachers, who have
heretofoie, in every Province, been
regarded as worthy of full citizenship. When this provision is carried,
as it will be, they will no longer be
entitled to vote.    That is  the   pen
regard   to   Dominion
This has reference to
method, in view of a general election. The other is the declaration
of a vital principle of responsible
(Government, which only recently has   ,       . , .   ,
f ., ' .. ��� . ;1T, With Kitchener to Khar-
been violated in this Province: "Resolved, That this meeting, called
for the organization o'f the British
Columbia Constitutional party, condemns the action of Lieutenant-Governor Mclnness in dismissing the
Turner Ministry, as an exercise of
the prerogative wholly warranted by
any facts existing at the time. Further resolved, that this meeting upholds the constitutional doctrine
that no Ministry should be dismissed
except upon grounds that can be
stated and justified to Parliament:
And further resolved, that this meeting is of the opinion that the omission of the Hon. Mr. Semlin, the
present Primier, to state and defend
the grounds of such dismissal to the
Legislature is in defiance of responsible government and in subversion
of the fundamental principles of the
constitution."

EXPENSIVE   SIGHT-SEEING.
Rogers' Pass, as all travelers on
the C. P. R. can testify, is one of
the grandest ot many grand sights
of the Rockies. Much of the tourist
traffic of the railway is due to it and
other sublime views that constantly
present themselves in crossing the
mountains. They are the great
drawing card, and the management
makes the most of them. The
station at Rogers' Pass has been so
placed that tourists alighting at it
have the best possible view of the
surrounding scenery. The tourist
traffic must be encouraged. It is
already considerable, and is yearly
growing greater. A tourist who
can alight at the base of a tremen-
duous mountain, and see other tre-
mendunus mountains all about him,
is naturally gratified, and is thankful to the company whose consideration affords him this great pleasure.
But it comes high. Rogers' Pass
is undoubtedly fine as a show place,
and that it is one of the principal
attractions for U urists is not surprising. The Company get the
benefit of the traffic, and the tourists
behold with wonder and delight.
But the other day all this cost the
lives of eight or ten human beings.
A correspondent of the Fort Steele
Prospector, Mr. J. M. Carrol, for
three years Postmaster at Rogers'
Pass, says that the recent accident
was just what had been expected
ever since the station was located
where it was. A mile farther west
is a level bit of ground, far more
suitable for station purposes, and
quite out of reach of possible snow-
slides. But it does not afford as
ijood a view of the Pass, or of
Mount Macdonald, or of Mount
Tupper. Now that human lives
have been offered up as a sacrifice
to lhe gratification of tourists, perhaps the Company will consider the
expediency of removing beyond the
reach of danger. It may not be
quite so igreeable to the tourists,
but the Company's employes who
go about with their lives in their
hands will be able to appreciate
ihe change.

A GREAT SUCCESS
CHARITY OARMVAL AT THE CRYSTAL RINK LAST EVENING*
Large Number of Handsome Costumes
and a Very Gratifying
Attendance.
The oarnival at tbe Crystal rink
last night under tho auspices of the
Hospital Ladies' Aid Society waa distinctly a success. It was probably the
biggest event of the kind ever held in
Nelson and is good evidence that when
Nelson ladies undertake to present to
the public an attraction, they leave
nothing undone to make it nil it should
be.
The costumes were good nnd dispute the ir.ild weather the ioe was iu
splendid condition. The judges of
the costumes wero Mrs. Goepel,Messrs.

The one mile men's open race created
considerable excitement. The entries

son and Arthur Perrier. Perrier took
the lend early in the race and won,
although he was pushed hard by Cowan who seemed unable to recover nfte r
the turus. The prize was a beautiful

During the evening the ladies served

HOME UNIVERSITY WORK.
Mr.
Gosnell, the General Seoretary, is
in tbe Oity.
The University Assoointion is the outcome of n Congress of University meu
held at Chicago during the World's Fair,
having for its object tbe popularizing
und extension of higher education. It
represents no particular ui iversity but is
rather a federation of the teoohing power-slot a number of the leading universities of the world and has associated
with it about fifty professors more or lets
distinguished rb specialists. It hns bad
marvellous success iu the Uuited States
aud the work is being extended to many
parts of the world.
lhe general secretary for B. C, Mr.
R. E. Gosnell, of Viotoria, is in the oily
aud will arrange while hero for the examination nf a looal reading centre.
There are about half a dozen courses already arranged���Universal Literature,
Religion and Theology, Politioal Economy and Political Scienoe, Astronomy
and Geology���all or any of which msy be
taken, practically bringing to the home
all the adviintages of a college course, nt
a nominal price. The basis of instruction is a pombo syllabus, containiug leo-
tures, supplemented by eopious extracts
from the standard authorities, whioh
supply tbe plnce of a reference library
and make each course oomplete in itself.
While a student may subscribe for the
syllabus and pursue the study by himself, tbe usual method is to form a reading centre or association which meets
weekly for the review of studies CBrried
on during the week. From 15 to 30 minutes a day devoted tc tbe work will carry
a student through a oourgo of a year.
LOOAL AND PERSONAL
After holding sittings of the Supreme
Court in Rowland this week, Mr. Jus-
ViO�� Martin Will return to Nelson uud r��*
sume tbe sittings here, commencing
next Monday. There are several oases
s ill to be disposed of on the NeUon
duoket.
E. J. Coyle, district passenger agent
of theO. P. R., was in Nelson yesterday.
There will be a special meeting of the
Cit ��� Council in the City Hall this afternoon.
Fernie is enterprising and ambitious.
It is uow endeavoring to organize a band
and a gun club.
Mr. C. E. Miller returned from the
Boundary country and Oasoade Oity
on Tuesday evening.
Mr. Harry Wilson, of Silverton, arrived iu the city aud leaves on this
morning's train for home.
Mr. H. Fisher, representing the Albert
Toilet Soap Co., Moutresl, is among the
drummers at present in the oity.
Mr. Geo. Doyle, who has been managing J. A. Gilker'i branoh store at
Ymir, returned to the oity Tuesday
evening.
The ice on the lake is disappearing- rapidly and the movements of
the boats are now interferred with
bnt slightly.
Miss O'Riolly, oue of the s'sif of teach
era at the Nelsou publio school, uj ill and
her olnsB ia being oonduoted by Miss
Nora O'Rielly, her sister.
A dauce will be given by the Dundee Gold Mining Oo. in the Master-
sou's Hall of Ymir this evening. A
large number of Nelson people are
going.
The Oddfellows oonduoted tbe funeral
of William Berkleman, who died suddenly in the Silver King hotel. It took
plaoe yesterday afternoon and was attended by many friends of deoeased.
" We may have one more cold spell,
but I don't look for it, said an old-timer yesterday. If the present thaw continues until all the snow is gone we
will see very little more now. I look
for a very early spring.
Thore are some people in Nelsou pessimistic enough to prophesy that the recent unprecedented cold weather iu
eastern Cauada will reach here iu a few
days. Nelson has had about all it wants
in this line this winter and it is satisfactory to note that the cold wave is heading towards Europe.
One by one all the leading business
houses are catering to the trade of tbe
Kooteuays. The Empire Tobacoo Oo. of
Grin,by, Que., has established a branch
at Vancouver, and Mr. R. L. Weldon,
the mauager.ia now in Nelson impressing
upon tbe trade tbe virtues ot hia leading
braids of tobacoo.
The Hon. J. Fred Hume will leave
tod y for Victoria and will in a few
dnys be again sworn in as a member of
the Provincial Legislature for the Nelson Hiding of West Kootenay. His
res'gi ation did not effect his portfolio,
aud he will a��sume the duties of his
office immediately upon his return to
Victoria.
Work on the new Opera House
is progressing- rapidly and each
evening it is more comfortable.
Now that there are no more political meetings, elections or carnivals,
running in opposition, the managers
expect a large attendance at the
remaining performances of the All
Star English Company.
Mr. E. J. Curran of the Club hotel bas
blood in his eye. Someone has broken
his back gate and his ire has been
aroused. He will pay $5 to anyone who
will give bim information leading to the
arrest of the individual in question sad
fur li r announoes that if he even finds
the man who did tbe damage there will
be a candidate for the hospital.
Mrs. Robert *Stokes,mother of the boy
who was injured in the gunpowder accident mentioned in yesterday's Miner,
died nt tbe Criokmay hospitsl Wednesday evening ot pneumouia. She leaves
a family of seven children, the youngest being two weeks old. Tbe sad
double affliction that Mr. Stokes, who is
road master on the C. P. R, has suffered has awakened a great deal of sym-
pi.thy for him.
The trouble with the reservoir is over
for this season. There is a big stream ot
water flowing in and everyone in town,
except those who have not yet thawed
out the pipes leading to their houses,
are getting a plentiful supply. Work
was commenced yesterday on Josephine
siieel where the main is frozen and it is
expected that it will be thawed out todny. That done the Victoria street main
will receive nttention and in a day or two
residents on thru Btreet may expeet service.
Tbe day after election day was a quiet
oue in Nelson. Those business men
who had given up their work to look
after the interests of their candidates
were trying to make up their minds to
get baok into the harness Post nior-
tems were held ou every corner aud the
"I lold you so" could be heard nil daylong. In some cases, too, the celebration of Tuesday night was continued,
ft was such a big victory, some of the
Hume men thought, that it was worth
more than the value of a few hours'
time.
Mr. E. E. Phair, proprietor ot the
Phair hotel, is io trouble. He had a jar
of preserved ginger the other eight
which he presented to a friend. The
friend pinned it oo the ssfe in the hotel
and asked that it be guarded until he returned, wh��n be would  MM ii hoflrt,
Afterwards another friend of Mr. Phair
pot in an appearance and he was presented with the same jar of ginger and
straightway oarried it away, Tbe friend
No. 1 put in au uppeaiauce and was told
by Phair that Mr. bad  carried  the
ginger away. The two Phair friends
met next day and one bought the other
a drink.
During the Carnival last night
there was a very exciting curling
contest. A rink skipped by J. H.
Wallace defeated Frank Tambyln's
rink by a score of 9 to 11, Tamblyn
leading until the last end when
Wallace scored three points and
won out. The ice was very heavy.
Tamblyn's rink was composed of
Messrs. Lawrence, Richardson,
and Carey, and Walloce's rink was
made up with Messrs. Hall, Lamont
and Russell, the latter pulling out
before the end of the game and
giving way to H. R. Cameron;

Loudon, Feb. 15.���The Toulon correspondent of the Dailv Mail, remarking
upon the extraordinary activity at the
arsenal there aud generally in the
French naval works, Bays;
"It is believed Unit M. Lockrey, minister of marine, expects war with England within two years and it is notorious that a war with England is being
preached in official circles in Paris.
Troops are being poured into Tunis,
Corsica and Algeria, and war material
is being dispatched to all colonies.
French colonies boast they will sweep
the British fleet out of the Meditei-

London, Feb. 15.���The Daily Chronicle publishes a letter this morning
from Count Leo Tolstoi, the celebrated
Russian philosopher, condeming the
conference proposed by Emperor Nicholas for the limitation of the armaments as"ouly worthy of contempt and
derision." Count Tolstoi says: "It
will be impossible to reduce armaments while natious not only persist iu
acquiring new possessions, like the
Philippines, Port Arthur and the rest,
but also keep what they have acquired,
like India, Poland, Alsace-Loraine and
the rest."

There is a rumor in Fort Steele thai
an English syndicate is making advances to purohase tlie North Star am
tho Sullivan group of mines. This is
not unlikely, but if it buys it it will
be a stiff price. The owners of thi
North Star think its virtue   is   up  in
the millions somewhere.
* *   *
Of the situation generally at Fori
Steele, the Prospector says: The
mines iu tho vicinity of Fort Steelt
are showing up in excellent condition.
A large amount of work is being done,
aud with development the value of the
properties is being made more apparent. It is not improbable that the mines
now being operatod on Wild Horse
Creek and its tributaries will rival
many of the now famous mines in
other districts of the Province.
* *   #
There is no excuse now for a minor
to be out of work. The demand for
men is brisk. Sickness seems universal aud not a few mines are sufferim-
a lack of hands on that account. The
Silver King could accomodate upward?
of thirty men now as it is ruuuin--
short handed. Sickness and the opening of the mine for additional mm
have brought about this state of affairs
