THE NEWS OF
THE DOMINION
Tlie railroad and coal question
reached the city council last night.
Every other organized body in the
Kootenays has bnd the topic under di.*;
enssion, and it was inevitable that the
problem would force itself on the attention of the local aldermen in ses
aion. After n brief discussion the
matter was quietly shelved, the mem
bers evidently preferring to leave the
disposition of coal and railroad puzzles to the organizations whose specialty is the consideration of general
economic questions.
The subject was brought np in the
form of a resolution forwarded by
tbe ulty clerk of Phoenix with abatement to the effect that the resolution
had been adopted by the Phoenix
council and the wish expressed that
the councils of other Kootenay cities
ahould take action along similar
lines.
Tbe resolution recited that, whereas, the present coal and coke supply
waB inadequate, that danger existed
of a still further shortage and that it
had been proposed to restrict the exportation of coal by refusing charter- to railroads proposing to build
iutu the coal fields which would be
disastrous to the interests of the country in other respects, the "Council recommended the imposition of an export
duty on coal and went on record as
strongly in favor of allowing as many
railroads as possible to come into the
province from the United States or
elsewhere.
After the reading of the communication and resolution, Mayor Fletcher
remarked that in in his opinion
there was genuuine danger of a shortage of coal In tbe Kootenays, but that
the matter had already been gone into
at great length. He bad had considerable experience in past years of
coal Held and was satisfied in his
own mind that when people talked of
millions of tons of coal in East Koote
nay and thousands of acres of coal
lands they simlpy didn't know what
they were talking about.
This was practically all the discussion on the communication and when
Aid. Selous and Gillett moved tbat
- the letter and resolution be acknowledged with thanks and tiled, there
was no dissenting voice.
Another resolution forwarded by
the Phoenix council received more
consideration. It dealt with the danger of private corporations securing
greater powers in the matter of as-
quiring water rights in the county
of Yale, urging upon the government
to make no amendments to existing
legislation which would give private
parties any rights in addition to those
possessed by civic corporations.
The council felt that legislation
such as was hinted at, while not
affecting this county, would naturally
have an influence in the future, and
it was resolved that a copy of the resolution should be forwarded to tlie
local representative in tbe legislature
with a request tbat the city's interests should be safeguarded.
The fire, water and light committee
did not go into tbe matter of reorganizing tbe fire brigade as was expected,
having deferred their presentment on
this .subject to a iater date. Their
report last night was as follows:'
1. That a suitable team of horses
be purchased for the fire department
and the present horses turned over
to the health department.
2. That. James Boyd has been ap ���
pointed driver on probation in the fire
department.
3. That II. Stutter be employed
temporarily as a fireman pending the
reorganization of the fire department.
The report was adopted and on motion of Aid. Selous and Gillett the
matter of purchasing the new team
was left to the committee.

circumstances, Cranley is oyer 70

THE TIME BALL.
City Clerk Strachan bas received a
communication from the postmaster-
general stating that, the matter of
having the plans for the new offices
here changed to admit of the addition
of a clock and time ball properly belongs to the department of the minister of public works to whom the city's
letter has been referred.
CHAPLEAU   DIFFICULTIES
THERE WAS A RUSH YESTERDAY
TO    SECURE    JUDGMENTS
AGAINST THE MINE.
A LIST OF  THE  ACTIONS WHICH
WERE DECIDED IN FAVOR
OF PLAINTIFFa
Yesterday's session of the county
court was largely taken up with litigation arising out of the. affairs of
the Chaplaeau Mining company. On
Saturday the solicitors for the company, Messrs. Elliot St Lennie, held a
conference with the creditors and
submitted to them an offer to discharge the Chaplenu's obligations.
The proposal was to deposit 85,000 in
the bank at once and to furnish the
personal assurance of the directors,
who are well known to be wealthy
Parisian gentlemen, tbat the balance
of the debts would be wiped out within GO days. This offer was accepted by
all the parties, witb the exception of
the interest represented by one of the
soicitors present. As the consent of
the creditors had to be unanimous the
settlement fell through.
Accordingly, when the court opened yesterday there was a rush to secure judgments against tbe mine. The
following actions were decided in favor of the plaintiffs, John Cholditch
& Co., 82,700; H. Byers,- ��3,000; Mc-
Callum & Co., 83,000; A. York . &
Co., 8700; Brackman & Ker Milling
Co., 8700; Kootenay Electric Construction & Supply Co., 8200; Hudson's
Bay, Co., 8200; Nelson Saw & Planing Mill, 81,200. It was maintained
tbat tbe York claim was incurred In
connection with the construction of
the wagon road, and that the company-
was not liable for tbe amount on this
gronnd. An appeal will be taken in
the matter. An appeal will also; be
made in the judgment secured by the
Brackman & Ker Milling company.
When court opened application was'
made by Elliot tit Lennie for tbe registration of a mortgage for 829,000 on
the Chapleau property in favor of one
of the original owners. The document was drawn in France and isinow
on the way.here to be filed. The matter was left over to be argued at a
later date. _ ��
A tiial shipment of Chapleau eon-
centrateB-waa made to- Nelson L��no? the
shipment netted 8700. This amount
���was deposited in the bank and has
been attached at tbe instance of the
creditors. The test of the concentrates would seem to indicate that
with proper treatment the Chapleau
ore would, net a handsome return. This
contention has been made continuously sin:e the properly was taken up,
and it is evident that the values are
in the ore without a doubt.
IN NEW OFFICE-
The C, P. R. travelling auditors for
tbe Nelson district, Messrs. C. A.
Bell and W. H. Miller, are now comfortably located in their new office in
tbe depot. It.is expected tbat ore of
the first changes which Superintendent Downie will put into effect will
be that of moving his present office to
the suite of offices reserved for tbe
superintendent and staff at the east
end of tbe station.

Discriminated  in Kootenay.
Ottawa,   March   4.���W.   A.    Galli
her, (Yale and Cariboo) in supporting
tlie statements of the mover of the
resolution on tho railroad question,
quoted from a memorial adopted by
the Fernie Board of Trade complain
ing that the rates between Fernie and
Lethbrldge, points on tbe Crow's
Nest Pass railway, 111 miles distant,
had been raised in May last as follows: First class freight from 60
cents to 81.02, second class from 58
to 85, third class 40-to 08, and fourth
class |fiom 35 to 51, and fifth class
from 31 to 46 cents per hundred
There was a clause in the charter of
that road regulating railroad rates.
It was safe to assume the railroad
started out by charging the rates they
were entitled to charge and that being the case, why wire tbe rates increased? He did not know whether
the matter had been ,reported to the
government or not. \ If the government had control efforts should be
made to legulate these rates and if
they were unable to do so, some other means should be devised. If they
conld not obtain a reinedy of all the
grievances complained of by the means
of a railroad commission they could
obtain a relief from many of them.
The railroad commission would be
able tn make personal investigations into these complaints and might
also investigate aB to the necessity
for new railways when charters are
applied for. '.,

(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Ottawa, March 4.���A deputation of
the Trades and Labor Congress waited on the government today to pn-s -
ent their annual bill of grievances.
These were Ralph Smith, M. P , A.
W. Puttee, M. P., J. I. Flett.of Hamilton, M. P.,J. 0. Reynolds, and Wm.
Draper, of Ottawa; Chas. March and
W. Henderson, of Toronto; John C.
Scott, of Quebec; and J. S. Fitchpat-
rick and J. 8. Rodler, of Montreal.
The interview took place in the premier's office and therej was present Sir
Wilfrid Laurier and Mr. Mulock, the
minister of labor.
Ralph Smith introduced the delega
tion and afterwards took up the first
subject. It was that in regaid to the
fradulent granting of naturalization
papers to Japanese. It was proven
in tbe courts that this was now done.
The Japanese controlled nearly all
the fishing in the Fraser river, through
obtaining certificates In this way.
There were five points that Mr. Smith
brought op���He wanted all the certificates granted for the past two. years
cancelled, that the time of residence
in the country be extended from three
to five years, that the Japanese
should produce tbeir entrance certificates before becoming naturalized,
and that no justices of the peace be
allowed to give a certificate, but
that tbis be left to a supreme court.
Sir Wilfrd Laurier asked Mr. Smith
if Japanese Immigration bad stopped.
Mr. Smith replied tbat it had. Sir
Wilfrid Laurier then said it might be
interfering with vested rights to can-
eel certificates, but what could be
done was to see that no ene who got
a certificate fraudulently should get
any benefit therefrom. He agreed
that a supreme court judge should
give out naturalization papers and
uot justices of the peace. As to extending the time from three to fire
years against Japanese, it would
smack of Krugerism and be did not
like the idea. Now that there was
very little Japanese immigration it
would perhaps do if they prevented
tha fraud. As to alien labor which
waa touched upon by Mr, Smith, the
premier said that the government had
it under consideration.
There was very little preliminaries
in tho honse today. A couple of bills
received a second reading and then
questions were put by members.
Replying to Prefontaine, the minister of finance stated that it was not
the intention of the government to,
at present,: amend the banking, act
with a view to preventing the use by
any one.of any name or description,
calculated to lead the public to believe
such person, was authorized lo carry
on a banking. lousiness, receive deposits and so forth.
The existing legislation was considered as effective as it could possibly
be made... A similar answer was given to a question as to whether tbe
government contemplated the enactment of legislation desiring to provide
for a more complete and effective inspection of tbe financial institutions
of the country.
The Oph iron which the Duke and
Duchess of Cornwall sail for Australia
leaves Portsmouth on March 10, and
is expected to j-each Melbourne on
May 6.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier has decided not
to go to Australia to attend the Commonwealth ceremonies owing to bis
parliamentary, duties. Mr. Mulock
will go in bis place.
' Mr. James Sutherland will be acting
postmaster-general while Mr. Mulock is absent in Australia. Mr. Mulock will sail on Saturday next. Geo.
Mercier Dawson, director of the Dominion Geological survey, died here
on Saturday evening, after 48 hours
illness witb bronchitis. He was the
eldest surviving son of Sir Wm.   Daw-.'

(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Victoria, March 4.���Capt. McKenzie, acting here for the Great Northern, has about completed a deal for
tbe big barge Georgia to be placed

CONVROL   OF    RAILWAYS
MR. DAVIS   MOVES   FOR  THE APPOINTMENT OF GOVERNMENT
RAILWAY   COMMISSION.
HE   GAVE    SOME  STRIKING   INSTANCES   OF   A   DISCRIMINATION  IN   FREIGHT RATES.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
tOtawa, March 4.���Davis,(Saskatchewan),introduced today his motion for
a government railway commission.
He said the recent action of the Manitoba government, In agreeing to purchase a railway for a great deal more
than its cost, showed that the people
were in earnest in their desire for a
release from the domination of railways.
A feeling existed among a great
many people that the government
should acquire control of all the roads
in the conntry, but he did not think
it necessary to go that length. AI -
most every road in the country was
bonded for more than twice its cost,
so that to acquire them would involve
an extravagant expenditure.
He pointed as an example to the
Regina, Long Lake tit Saskatcbewan
road, which cost 82,500,000, but^was
bonded for 83,800,000. We had power
under the act to regulate the freight
and passenger rates, and that was all
that was required.
As to the construction of new roads,
he argued that instead of granting
sueh subsidies iu the past as we have
done, the government, where there
was a necessity for the road, should
guarantee the bonds to certain
amounts, taking a first mortgage on
the road. Then as the conntry filled
up and the road began to pay It would
be easy to induce other people to take
up bonds, relieving the government
while the government would relieve
tbem of the mortgage. In the event
of the company not being able to pay
its way, the mortgage could be foreclosed and the government would have
nn asset In the road.
Davis then gave some striking Instances of discrimination in rates.
People in the west, he said, did not
expeot to get their products carried
for nothing. All they wanted was
reasonable rates, but when they were
called on to pay double what was paid
in eastern Canada, was it not time
to raise their voice against this oppression? And still we were told tbat
we sbould exclude American capitalists from entering the Canadian railroad field. Why should we hand over
to the C. P. R.  the entire   northwest?
CONDUCT OF
WAR OFFICE
Wolsely Declares the Soldiers
Do   Not   Like   the
System.
Lansdowne Retort. Wolsely
Did Not Know His
Business,
London, March ���!,���In the debate on
the conduct of the war office, Lord
Wolseley said he had worked with
the Marquis of Lansdowne and there
had not been a single disagreeable
incident. His complaint wan that the
professional commander-in-chief was
robbed of his chief usefulness, lie
had to band over the command and
the entire management of thu army
to a civilian secretary of state, assisted by subordinates with whom he
dealt direct.
Lord Wolseley outlined the present
system, which was entirely unsuiteil
for the army, nnder which It would
never be efficient, and he doubted
much if they would ever have a contented army. Up to 180.1 he (tho
commander-in-chief) was responsible
to the secretary of state that the army
was thoroughly trained for the war.
Since 1895 the responsibility hud been
with the under secretary of stale,
dividing it into four water tight compartments, each under a military bead
and each advising tbe secretary of
state without reference to the commander-in-chief.
"My lords,I need scarcely tell you,"
said Lord Wolseley, Impressively,
"tbat our soldiers do not like the war
office nor its civilian rulers. You
cannot flout the sentiment of the army
without injuring its morale."
The Marquis of Lansdowne, the former war minister, replied to Lord
Wolseley immediately He said he
waa constrained to say that Lord Wol-
sley during his term of office hnd failed to understand hiB duties. He might
at least have warned the government
that one army corps was not sufficient
to crush the Boers.
The debate will be resumed tomorrow.
DEWET'8 MOVEMENTS.
London, March 4.���A despatch from
General Kitchener dated Pretoria,
March 4, says: "Dewet was moving
on Phillipoplis, Orange river colony,
but was headed by our troops and is
now marching on Fauresmith, (about
40 miles north of Phillipopolis.)
ROBBERY AT GRAND FORKS.
Grand Forks, March 2.���At 2:30 this
morning a bold robber smashed the
plate window in Mayor M. D. White's
jewelry store,on Bridge Btreet, snatched two cases of rings set with diamonds and other stones, valued at 81,-
000 , nnd made good his escape. The
police were on the gronnd in a few
moments, but have no clue to the
identity of the robber, who undoubtedly has gotten across the line by this
time. The most valuable of the rings
taken weri> one large cluster of diamonds valued at 8100 and an opal
surrounded by chip diamonds, valued
at 150.
AFTER THE DAIRIES.
In reporting to the city council on
tne result of an inspection of tbe
dairies selling milk in the city, Dr.
LaBau. medical health officer, stales
that the matter of surface water will
shortly become a burning question.
Most of the dairies are still using
surface water and while this was satisfactory during frosty weather it
would become a men nee to the health
of the consumers when the soft weather rendered surface water utterly unfit for use. He proposed to order nil
the dairies to put In connections with
the city water mains inside of thirty
days, and failure to comply with
this order would result In the parties
being refused permission to sell within tbe city limit*..
THE IMPERIAL LIMITED.
The Imperial Limited service is to
go Into effect on a date to be selected
about tbe middle of June. The company propose making some changes
which will result in cutting down the
time between Montreal and Vancouver
by some hours. The ('. P. !i. is figuring on nn unusually large amount of
transcontinental business, among the
fixtures being several parties of English tourists who are expected to take
in the Kootenays. Tho C. P. R. houseboats on the Kootenay and Sloean
lakes are to be widely advertised and
are expeoted to be in nlmost constant

WELCOME TO NELSON.
Mr. William Downie, who   succeeds
Capt. Troup us superintendent  of the
C. P. R. lines in the   Kootenays,   has
arrived in Nelson.    Tbe Miner thinks
it may,   on   behalf of the entire community,   extend a cordial   welcome to
him,   and   aBsure   him  that it has no
doubt but that the widespread popularity which he enjoyed in the field of la-
bur with whicli he   has   ^ust   severed
his connection to take up his new duties in the Kootenays, will   also have
existence   during,  his soionrn in Nelson.    It is very pleaBing to know tbat
we   shall   be    fully   recompensed   for
the loss of such an   estimable   gentleman as Capt. Troup, by   the   presence
amongst us of one of whom his host of
friends cannot sny too much in praise.
As indicative of   the  esteem-In which
he is   held  at the coast we  reproduce
from the Vancouver   Province   the in
troduetory   remarks of the   report   of
the   banquet   which    wns     tendered
Mr. Downie:    "At   the   outset it was
intended to tender a   formal   banquet
to Mr. William Downie on the eve   of
his   departure   for  Nelson, where   he
will assume   his new duties���but Bueh
was   the   jnthusiastie response of the
etizens of Vancouver   that it   became
purely   a   rollicking   informal   affair
before the night   was   far   advanced.
The   scene of   the festivities  was the
Hotel Vancouver, and the most prominent and mercantile men in   Vancouver were in attendance   last   night to
ito honor to the guest of   the evening,
the cares of   everyday   lite   being left
without   the   door   and   the   be6t   of
gocdfellowship  prevailing throughout
the entire   evening.    Never before   in
the hiBtory of the city was there such
a popular send-off   given to a citizen,
and  this   fact   can   be accounted   for.
only by taking into consideration the
widespread popularity of Mr. Downie,
who  durirg   his   fourteen   or   fifteen
years'   residence    has     math*    many
friends on ever hand,   although   be it
granted that by nature be is of a ietir-
ing disposition.    Mr. Downie cast   in
his  fortunes   with   the C.   P. R. and
with   this   city   in the latter part   ol
1888, or   to be more correct he settled
in Port   Moody, for   then   there   was
practically no city of Vancouver.   Mr.
Downie   has   been  a railroad man all
his life, ever since boyhood days when
he enteied the service of the Northern
Kail way   of    Canada.    He   was   then
stationed at Toronto   and   commenced
his career   under   the tutelage of Mr.
John Harvey, finally rising to the position of train despatchcr   under   that
gentleman.    When   Mr. Harvey   gave
way in the ever   changing   course   of
events   to   Mr.   James  Webster,   Mr.
Downie was still to be found handling
the train deBpatehcr's   affairs   in   tlie
head offices of   tho   old-time   railway
company, which   few   of the   present
generation have any distinct recollection of, It having been absorbed many
years   ago   by   the   Grand   Trunk, of
eastern   Canada.     From     this    short
sketch   of   the   railroad   life of   Mr.
Downie   it   will be seen that   he   has
risen to his present   high and respon-
silbe   position from tbe ranks and entirely upon his own merits; therefore,
as one of   the spcechmakets  said  last
night,   Let   ub do him   all   honor���he
deserves it.' "
ion that Kamloops possesses a climate
unsurpassed in its health-restoring
qualities, so ou that score it possesses
considerable of an advantage over
other claimants for lecognition in respect to tbe selection of a site. We
assume that there will hardly be any
two opinions on the wisdom of the
recommendation tbat the government
should give consideration to the expediency of redividing the counties--
all the northern portions of the Baid
counties being together into one country ; the southern portion of Kootenay
to be a .second eounty and the southern portion of Vale to be a third county. Such action is desirable because
the Dominion parliament has voted a
salary for an additional county court
judge, nnd it is considered essential
that such judge should be given to
tlie Boundary district. What is in
many respects the most Important
resolution which wns passed at the
convention is that urging the government to at once establish and actively
conduct a literary bureau in connection with Jhe department of mines. It
docs not require nny argument to
show that such would prove of very
valuable assistance in dessemlnating
adequate and authentic information
concerning the vastness of the mineral resources of the province, their
development, the ontput of the mines
and value, and the erection of smelters and refineries, as a means of calling attention throughout the world to
the same, so as to induce a larger
investment of capital. We think we
can take it for granted tbat the government will display no hesitancy in
acting upon such recommendation.

MOKE RESOLUTIONS.
The resolutions passed at the concluding session of the Associated
Boards of Trade of Southern British
Columbia at Greenwood are rather
Important. One urges upon both the
federal and provincial governments
the desirability of assisting in the
erection at some point in British Columbia of a sanitarium for the treat
ment of consumptive patients. The
alarming progress which the fatal
"white plague" has made in Canada
during recent years will no doubt
have the effect of inducing the government to take some steps in the direction of establishing a national sanitarium; and for that reason the recommendation which has been made
by the Greenwood convention is timely. The citizens of Kamloops are displaying commendable energy in striving to have their city chosen as a site
for (be proposed sanitarium. It
lean* the  general   consensus of opin-
What a glorious opportunity Mr,
Joseph Martin is missing by notbeing
able to take a hand in the mighty
railway controversy which has set
Manitoba by tbe cars! It needs only
the influence of such a man as he to
raise a riot in the Prairie province.
A recent inspection of tbe customs
statistics has disclosed the fact that
Kootenay's exports are 40 per cent, of
the total fo>- the province. The gen
lUiuaii wbo handle the business of
the country ut Victoria would do well
to cut the above statement out and
paste it iu their bats.
Gentlemen who have just returned
from Greenwood, whore they were in
attendance at the third annual meet
ing of the Associated Bonrds of Trade
of Southern British Columbia, are
loud In praise of the open-handed
hospitality which was extended tln-ni,
and unite in characterizing Greenwood as a thoroughly up-to-date
town, full of push, vim and energy,

Major Hargrave, of Spokane, the
officer in charge of the Pacific division
of the Salvation army, wbo is now
in Nelson, finds the local branch in a
flourishing condition. Such an announcement is cause for gratification,
for, while the method of exeroising
Christianizing influences followed by
the Salvation army is in some respects
peculiar, all thoughtful people have
long since come to tho conclusion that
it is engaged in a very noble worn
and that its influence is unquestionably for the betterment  of   mankind.
Senator Cox, president of the Crow's
Nest l'nss Coal company is a man of
great expectations. At the annual
meeting held in Toronto the other
day he said: "There is a prospective
demand, provided we obtain access to
the American market, as I sball hereafter mention, for 4,500 tons of coal
per day. Within a year we expect to
increase our output to about 0,000 tons

replacing a broken shaft from Spokane. The repairs arrived on the delayed train and were immediately put
in place. The mill is now crushing
tu Its full capacity, and as the water
supply has Improved materially the
compressor is also being operated at
top speed.
TRACING THE LEAD���
G. H. Keefer and M. C. Monaghsn,
owners of tbe Muldoon, Mayflower,
Colorado and Belle fraction claims on
Forty-Nine creek have a surveyor on
the ground today tracing the Republic
lead across the group. The vein on
the Republic has proved to be strong
and continuous, and if it is developed across tbe claims tbeir value will
be materially enhanced.
8HRINERS TO WORSHIP���
Local Masons who havo been initiated into the mysteries of the Order
of the Mystic Shrine are much interested in tbe approaching ceremonies
in connection with El-Katiff temple
at Spokane. The occasion will be the
celebration of the return of the hundred pilgrims who recently arrived
home from Honolulu. A number of
local Masons will likely participate
in the festivities.
LOW WATER MARK���
Tbis is the month of low water in
the lake. Mild weather toward the
close of February raised the streams
whioh feed the lake, with the result
that the water was somewhat high r
than is usually the case, but the colder snap which has existed lor several
days is already lowering the level of
the water, and in a few days, unless
something unforeseen transpires, last
year's low water mark will be
reached.
INSPECTING THE SCHOOL���
A. C. Ewart. architect of this city,
is in Rossland today inspecting the
healing apparatus in use at the public school recently erected. Apparently there Is a serious defect in the heating system adopted as good results
could not be secured even with the
consumption of a ton of coal daily.
The provincial government instructed
Mr. Ewart to prepare a report on the
subject.
INSPECTED PASSENGERS���
On the arrival   of   the boats yesterday afternoon   the   incoming  passengers were inspected by a health officer
who was backed up  by a   policeman.
All   tbe     passengers     were     passed.
Mayor Fletcher infoimed   the   council
last night that tbe quarantine regula
tions were   being   fully enforced "and
that little difficulty was being experi
enced because of the fact that a quar
antine wus being enforced in   the   in
fected towns.
WHO'LL BE ENGINEER?���
At last night's council meeting i
letter was read from Robert Lillie applying for the post of engineer on the
road roller, and stating that in view
of having given satisfaction in a sira
liar capacity last summer he consider
ed he had .-��� prior right to the post. It
Was stated that the present engineer,
William Watkins, was engaged during the absence from the city   of  Mr.

��� igai-s, 8101,401 licenses, 837.00; total
84,8J)8,87. The aggregate collections
nre well to the murk of tlie proceeding
months.
LOCAL SPORTS���
Lacrosse enthusiasts look forward
to the coming summer with strong
hope that their favorite sport will he
revived and placed on a proper basis.
The trouble heretofore has been that
it was difficult to secuie teams with
which to play, hut the report of clubs
about to lie niganlzed in the lioundary
country hns led the local men to believe that the revival of interest may
prove general throughout tlie district.
TRIP TO ROSSLAND���
William Downie, tho new superintendent of the Kootenay and Boundary divisions who arrived on Sunday
evening from tbe const,spent yesterday
in becoming acquainted with the oity
and securing a grasp on the business

MOVING THE YARDS���
The C. P.R. Bteamboat staff will today begin moving from the old shipyards west of the city to the new
yards near Iloneymnn's foundry. For
the past week a crew of fifteen men
lias been at work clearing off the
timber and arranging the ground for
occupation. The work Is sufficiently
advanced to peimlt of certain parts of
the new yards being utilized and the
balance will be occupied as rapidly as
the plant can* be taken away from the
old premises and the i.ew buildings
erected.
STOLE THE STOVE���
The last portion of the equipment
of the isolation hospital to vanish
was the cook stove purchased last
winter by the city at considerable
cost. Mayor Fletcher inspected the
building yesterday and found the
stove was missing. No one knows
what has become of it, but a shrewd
suspicion exists that it could be located without much trouble in the Chi
nese colony in Cottonwood creek
gulch, together with the blankets and
other furnishings which bave vanished from time to time.
REACHED DESTINATION���
Mayor Fletcher received a communication yesterday addressed to
"The Mayor, Kootenay,Kootenay District, B.C." It had been posted at
White Horse, and apparently travelled
for several weeks before arriving in
Nelson. Tlie envelope bore ten postal
marks as follows. White Horse, Victoria, Golden, Medicine Hat, Fort
Steele, Windermere, C. P. It. Mainline, Nelson, and Vancouver twice.
The Vancouver postoffice people sent it
on to Nelson, where it wns found that
the contents were an unimportant circular.

QUEEN'S FUNERAL���
George II. Keefer has acquired the
right for the province to exhibit the
new cinematograph pictures of the
procession which accompsuied the
remains of the late Queen through
London. The views cover 2,500 feet
of film, and comprise 75,000 views of
the spectacle. Mr. Keefer will have
the films here shortly and will open
his tour of the province in Nelson.
BONDED A  GROUP���
Charles Robertson and Robert Quay
of this city have bonded a'group of
claims on the headwaters of Five Mile
creek to Edward Mace, at 815,000.
The group includes the Belfast, Armagh, Winnipeg nnd Brandon claims,
on which considerable work has been
done with good results. The purchaser agrees to make a first payment of
8750 on June first, a fuither install
ment on November.1, and the balance
on the first of January next. The
Five Mile creek country is practically
undeveloped as yet and the advent of
a new company will be a step iu the
right direction.
THOSE WASII-HOUSES-
At last night's council meeting Aid
ermun Irving brought up the question
of the Victoria street washhouses,
which nas vexed the present and for
mei councils from time to time.
Mayor Fletcher stated that jn company with the medk-al health officer
he had inspected tbe premises and,
that a further inspection ' would be
made as the matter of securing their
removal hinged on a legal reason being secured. Incidentally his wor
ship remarked that some of the shacks
near the laundries occupied by whites
were in even worse condition than
tbe Chinese places, and that they
would be condemned as nuisances in
the near future.
AFTER THE ASSETS- .
Trouble is brewing foi some one in
connection with the reorganization of
the Ure department. When the seven
old membeis of the brigade retired on
the appointment of Chief Lillie they
took with them a set of boxing gloves,
the minute book of tne brigade, a
photo of the firemen, a set of harness
for running races and the cash assets
of the Nelson Volunteer Fire brigade,
asld to amount to 850. The present
members of the brigade, about half of
whom were identified with the old or
ganization, assert that these assets
were the property of the' Volunteer
brigade as a whole and not on any individual or individuals. The opinion
of tbe city solicitor is to be secured
with a view of determining to whom
the property belongs,
