SANTA CM CITY
LOST TO TIE REBELS
The Expedition Was Aided
by Three Gunboats
USE FRONTIER TACTICS
General Lawton Accompanied  HiB Men-
���How the Battle Was Fought
and   Won.
Manila, April 10. ���1 p. m.���Santa
Cruz; wns the Filipino's strong hold on
Lake Laguua de Bay, and it fell into
the hands of General Law ton's expedition atter some sharp quick fighting,
forming oue of the most interesting
aud important battles of the war. The
plans of the United States commanders
worked perfectly with the exception
that the progress of the expedition was
delayed by tbe diffloult navigation of
the rivers.
About 1,500 picked men composed the
expedition, which was uuder the command of General Lnwtou, on account
of the illuess of Geueral King. The
troops partly surrounded the cily while
the gunboats Laguua do Kay, Nupidan
and Ceste, under the command of Captain Grant of the Utah "A" battery,
shelled the city and tlie outlying
trenches. Gen. Lawton and his staff
accompanied the troops, sometimes
leading the charges m Indian-lighting
tactics, which eventually resulted in
the oomph te route of the rebels, with
the smallest amouut of damage to the
city and Blight loss to the Americans
The expedition started from Kan Pedro
Maeati at dusk on Saturday, intendiiii
to capture Santa Crux hy assault ai
daybreak hut in navigating the shal
low Passig Kiver, perhaps through tie
cunuing of the native pilots, who wen
not anxious to see the Americans
successful, several boats grounded aud
it was early dawn when the troops
reached tho lu'.re. The expedition then
Steamed cautiously forward, the Nap-
idan and the Ceste a mile ahead and
the Laguua de Bay guarding tho rear.
Kebel signal fires.however, were lighted ou the mountain ton giving warning of the approach of the troops.
It was noon before the white ohuroh
towers of the city appeared in the
shadow of the great volcanic mountain
ou a marshy plain dotted with* occa
siona' palm groves. A casoo, a square-
edged flat-bottomed boat, with a force
of 200 picked sharp shooters under Major Weisehoger, mostly belonging ti
the First Washington Regiment, was
run iuto a shallow inlet about five
miles south of the city. Theu -i few
shells were sent towards the entrenchments of the rebels ut the edge of th,
woods, sending tho enemy scampering
inland. Then a number oi Americans
jumped into the water and wndin*.
about 100 yards, crept forward and
formed in line, covering the landing
of the remainder, which finished aboul
ii o'clock. Throe troops of the forth
cavalry, unmounted, were sent ashore
on a dangerous marshy point, directh
south of the City, under lire from tin
enemy's trenches.
Meanwhile, iu the town itself, then*
was utter silence and not a sign of life
General Lawton desiring to makt
an inspection aud to give the inhabitants an opportunity to surrender,
went on board the Luguna de Bay.
and, accompanied by the Associated
Press launch steamed slowly to the
dock, the whole fleet wutching anxiously. When it was discovered by the
glasses that the trenches and stone
buildings were swarming with white
clad soldiers, the two boats with
drew, i-oooiving vollevs from the
trenches thrown up on the marshy
plain north of the City. The fleet anchored in compact formation for the
night, ready to resist any attack from
the rebel gunboats supposed to be in
the lake. At sunrise today (Monday)
the assault commenced.
The American lines south of the cily
stretched two miles inland, and with
its left sweeping the shore, it moved
north. While the Fourth cavahy, the
men ou the point, advanced toward
the;oity pouring vollevs upon the
trenches. Simultaneously, the gunboats hovored along the shore, shelling
the woods ahead of the troops and
driving tbe Filpinos inland. The gat-
lings cleared several trenches. The
brigades wero divided into squads
of twelve, and the fighting was carried ou iu the old time frontier fashion,
from behind trees, crawling through
bushefl or rushing across the open.
The trenches that wero not cleared
by tho gunboats gave considerable resistance when the linos wero Hearing
the city, and the Lagnna de Bay and
Ceste bombarded thorn for au hour in
the hope of making it too warm for
them hut they did not succeed in clearing them entirely.
Gen. Lawton with the Fourteenth
Infantry battel,on approached a narrow
bridge across a stream on the border
of the town here. A company of Filipinos wns entrenched across the
Stream and behind B stone barricade
at the entrance to the bridge. The
Americans rushed forward in single
Hie in tho face of u galling fire, demolished the barricade with their
hands and dro/e the enemy from the
trenches, killing a dozen.
The Filipino soldiers in the town
secreted themselves in various build-
iugn and firing from the windows gave
the invaders an interesting hour,
lucre was a regular nest of them m
the stone jail, which is hedged in by
a wall. This was a veritable pepper
pot. The Americans singly or in pairs
entered the houses, aud many "native
warriors wero taken prisoners. A
considerable body of Filipinos fled
northward, crossing open marshes, but
the gatlings poured upon them a deadly
hail until they disappeared in the
woods, a dozen being slain.
Major Weiseuborger deployed the
sharpshooters along the creek and thev
crept steadily forward aiding the gatlings. Finally a largo body was seut
against the enemy in the woods driving them towards the mountains.
Goueral Lawton established headquarters at the elegant palace of the Governor and a guard was immediately
placed in churches as the sacred edifices are always the first ohjocttve of
looters. Within an hour the town
was patrolled and all looting rigidly
prevented. Almost all the inhabitant's
had fled during tho two preceding
nights, and only a few Chinese shopkeepers have omergod from hiding
and resumed busiuoss.
On the marshes north of the town
were found forty dead Filipinos some
terribly torn by shells and many
others wounded, to whom the Americans offered their canteens as though
they were comrades. A surgeon who
traversed the field counted 80 killed.
One Filipino attempting to make bis
escape, slashed violently at Major
Weiseuborger who shot and killed him.
Yesterday the insurgents captured
two mon of the Uth Infantry while
unarmed, but the Americans stole the
guns of their captors, clubbed them,
hid in the trees all night and returned
tbis morning. The gunboats this afternoon havo been searching the Santa
Cruz River for shipping. Tomorrow
the expedition will push forward, the
Americans having destroyed miles of
telegraph lines, cutting off tho insurgent   communication  east  and  west.

t'HE   INDIAN   MINT   QUESTION.
liluebook of Evidenoe Gathered By th*
Committee of Enquiry,
London, April HI. ���A blue hook giving the evidence obtained by tlie Indian Currency Inquiry Committee was
published today. It includes a letter
from lhe United States Secretary ol
State Colonel John Hay lo Lord Allien-
ham a director of the Bank of England dated Nov. 2b, last, saying:
"The Washington cabinet :loes not
consider it expedient for the U. S. to
reopen lhe   bimetallic   question al the
present moment in view of the oharaoter of the British Ministry's reply to
iho bimetallic commission iu 18H7."
Col. Hay added that the cabinet was
open to consider the question of a
ratio.
Lord Aldcnbam suggested before tbe
committee that negotiations be entered
into upon Ihe pari of Great Britain
with the United States with the view-
to coming to arrangements for the reopening of tlm Indian mint al the ratio
of 38 to 1, because thore was a possibility in the future of tho American
Government taking the hit in its teeth
aud re-enacting tho old latio. He
quoted Colonel Huy'u lettei iu support
of his views that the American Government was disposed to adopt the
ratio of 88 to 1. and added: "1 talked
with Colonel Hay when he was here
as amhassadorhe, seemed favorably disposed to this ratio but, said :
I '"I am au outgoing ambassador and,
of course havo no power' : "1 pointed
out that he would have considerable
infiuenco when he got back to America and assumed the Secretaryship of
Stato, aud I asked him to communicate with me. He waited for some
time after he returned, I think inteu-
lionally, until after the cougressionals
aud then wrote the letter. "

STHATHOONA'S WHEREABOUTS
FRANCE IS PROSPERING
He-, Foreign Relations  aw  all  Satisfactory mid Dreyfus Affair will
soon be Settled-
Paris, April 10.���The Premier.
Charles Alexander DUpuy, in the
course of an important speech to his
constituents yesterday at Lsepuy capital of tbe department of the H.uife
Loire, said that the situation both at
home and abroad was eminently satisfactory.
"The spontaneous election of a stalwart and worthy republican as president of the Republic" proves the stability and vitality of the Republic and
has disconcerted the factions who
dreamed of chimerical plebiscites and
futile restorations.
He referred approvingly to the recent
agreements with Italy and Great Britain and said that France was "Now-
free for industrial and commercial
development and a large Held of colon
izing."
Revelling to home affairs, he said
'The agitations are only on the surf an
beneath aro calm,industry and security. Tho end nf the Dreyfus affair ap-
pears lo be in sight aud the complications will bo unravelled by the court
if cassation, whose judgment will be
icknowledged by gall.
"The Government however attaches
importance to a reiteration of its determination to repress all polemics
which call the national army in ques-
ioii. As soon as the court of cass-i-
ion has given judgment, the Govern
ment will take the uecessary measures
*o determine tbe responsibilities and
v'l act accordingly, if that should b<
���lecessary ; but those acts and the pun-
shinent of individual faults will not
ifi'eef the army, which is our hope for
be future nnd the indispensable guard
an of the constitution and the law.
if certain peoplo think otherwise let
is leave them to their despicable folly

vard the army, full of gratitude and
confidence."

Moss Tangles Oroker up  Badly on the
Question of the Payment for
bis Roehling Stock-
New York. April 10.��� The second
day's session of ihe Mazet investigation committee commenced today and
a largo crowd waa on hand early.
Surprise was created when Mr. Mpsa
rose and said that; certain disreputable
individuals were going about extorting money upon the plea that they
had been engaged to serve subpoenas.
According'to Mr. Moss this plan was
to withhold the spurious subpoena for
a consideration.
Dr. O. Sullivan, who represents the
city departments, then rose and after
announcing that Frank Croker was in
court aud had been served with a subpoena, created a little stir   by adding:
"Mr. Richard Croker desires me to
say that he will be ut the disposal of
the ' investigation committee ut auy
lime up to the 18th of April when be
-ails for   Europe."
Mr. Moss Iben called for Frank Croker and the sou of ihe Tammany Hall
leader took the witness chair. He said
he was 21 lasl September He owned
170 shares oul ot the 60,000 in the
Koebling Oonstruotion Co. He had no
relative who was interested in tbe
other Roabling Co Xaunu Oroker said
lie himself proposed to his father that
lie outer the Roehling Co. He admitted he did not know much about
mgineering or fireproof construction.
He simply wanted lo go into a good
company. Mr. Mos*, hy his line of
questioning apparently endeavored to
intimate that Hit-hard Qraknr bad put
his nou ,iiiu tee ttoebllng Co. The
i-oiing man. however, was persistent
in the statement lhat it was his own
.ilea. Oroker said he paid $17,000 for
his stock. He paid it liy check to the
reasurer of the company. His check
���aine back in the ordinary course of
���Mills Then Mr Moss got very inter**
*-*tcil. Young Oroker said bis father
laid tho check, gave him the nionev
roi- it.
"Yon can get that check that waB
���iven you?'' asked Mr.  Moss.
" Yes sir.*" said Croker.
"Will you send it to me?"usked Mr.
Moss courteously, ami then it transpir*
id that there had beeu   no check ut all
n tho transaction.
Croker corrected his previous stato-
ment.
"Why did you say you gave a
cheek r" asked Mr.  Moss.
'1 thought you meant paid him
gave him a check, ' replied tho witness, who finally declared he had not
understood Mi. Mobs' question; The
money was paid to the treasurer of
the company, Prank Briggs,
_;Mr. Moss got ('nil; r to say that before going into the Roehling Conipanv
they ha,I explained the status of their
easiness to him and he had found
their statements to be absolutely correct. One of flic Roeblings testified
on Saturday it warouly recently tbat

next two, if   the   Province   were  left

to exolnde our own kith   and kin from

contemporary  will have to admit that
its "momentum" has   gone somewhat
lame.    Legislation   may  help prosperity, 5 and   legislation   may   retard   it.
With   tbe  former,   British   Columbia |

DOWN WITH   HOME   SMELTING.
A number of the Provincial newspapers are using the following, taken
from tbe Spokane Spokesmaa-Review :
'"If Mr. Hill will give the word,
Spokane can be made one of tbe chie!
smelting centers nf the United States.
He indicates a desire to do this. Mr.
Hill also comprehends tbe grave responsibility, if smelters are not established here, of the smelting industry
being firmly established across the
line in British Columbia. Already
sucoessful smelters are established at
Nelson and Trail, and plans are formulated for another in tne Boundary
Creek country. A large part of the
ores of tbe mineral belt along the
International Boundary will not bear
shipment to the oistaut smelters of the
United States, and if smelters are not
erected here, these ores will go to tbe
local smelters of British Columbia
and the tonnage will pass to the
Canadian Pacific''
It is neoessaiy in Spokane's interest
and in the interest of Mr. Hill and
the Great Northern, to close the smelters at Nelson and Trail and to make
sure that the one prepared to be established in tbe Boundary Creek country
shall never be erected. Therefore let
a oharter be given to Mr. Corbin to tap
the Boundary miniug region, which
will insure the latter and go a long
way towards accomplishing the destruction of those already established.
The Boundary ores must go to Spokaue
for treatment, otherwise local smelting will be encouraged and British
Columbia will receive the benefit from
its own mines that ought to be diverted to tbe enrichment of the neigbor-
ing State of Washington. And, of
course, tbat will never do.
We do not know whether The Toronto Globe is entitled to speak for
the|Government on the question of a
Kettle River charter, but it appears
to be quite positive tbat Mr. Corbin's
application will be gained. More often
that not The Globe is inspired, but
sometimes it is not. It was not inspired on the Senate question, nnd it may
not be on this. Before Parliament
takes til, irrurocaO?,: ����������**, t'iie xutuabMB
should reflect tbat there are a great
many things to be oonaidered which
have a direct bearing on this matter of
a foreign railway which oan develop
nothing locally but whioh will oarry
off all it oan get. The effeot on the
smelting industry of British Columbia
U one of them, and to it The Miner
would respectfully direct tbeir attention, begging them to give it as serious, as impartial, and as intelligent
consideration as the oapaoity of
their minds will permit.
Tbe attention of those organs that
are boasting of tariff reductions daring tbe past year or two is directed
for a moment to the Customs revenue
fur the port of Nelson for the month of
Mareh just passed. We imported dutiable goods to the value of |S0,180 on
which were paid in duties the sum of
$-,808. This is a fraction over 29 per
cent, a rate that will hardly be held
to be consistent with those free trade
piofessions that tickled the fancy of
the country just previous to the last
groeral eleotion.
Tbe Government at Ottawa have
no morn unwearying foe than Tbe
Montreal Star, yet it is carrying two
government advertisments. One does
not require to be very old to reoall the
time wben a Canadian Government
would as soon think of suicide as to
feed an Opposition newspaper with
patronage. Tbat was not a proper feel
ing, for Government advertising is a
pin lio business and tbe advertisement
should be inserted where the best value
would be obtained for the oust of it.
The large circulation of The Star
makes it an excellent medium, and it
is therefore employed in the public service. Uncompromising in its attitude
of hostility as it may be, The Star is
shut off from condemning the Government because of partisan favor in distributing their advertising  patronage.

Th* Daily Columbia!*., of New
Westminster, bas great faith in the
future of British Columbia. There is
nothing so very exceptional in that,
it may be said, for all British Columbians hare faith in the Province, and
believe that it is destined, within a
few more decades, to rank as first in
the Dominion in wealth, population,
and enterprise. A member of Parliament hailing from near by the other
ocean that laves our shores was
saying some pretty and flattering
things of us a few days ago, and these
have stirred our excellent and esteemed contemporary of New Westminster
into a burst of enthusiasm over the
future. The geutleniau predicted that
the next census would place us third
in tbe list of Provinces. The Columbian is hardly an saiitfuiue as that, although it sees that much may be
gaiaed in the two years yet to intervene. A good ii* ul of progress cau be
made in tbat time, it says, "when a
good momentum bas been got on such
as we have begun to travel under, in
the mining regions of the Province
particularly.''
Doe* The  Columbian   seriously   believe   that   this    "momentum"     hns
been aided by   the   legislation   to exolnde aliens .-ml the law which threatens to set the miners and mine owners
at each   other's   throats?   It  supports I

CITY WILL CHANGE
Bank of Halifax Will Hereafter Have Business
MEETING- LAST NIGHT.
Tbe Assessment of the   Oitj   Shows  a
MoBt Encouraging Increase
Over Last Year.
Tbe Oity Council decided at its
meetiuK last* evening to transfer its
bank account from tbe Bauk of Montreal to the Merchant's Bank of Halifax. A discussion in which all the
aldermen took part was the only lively
feature of the meeting which waa at*
tended by Mayor Neelauds aud all
tho Aldermen. Various reasons why
the account should not bo transferred
were advanced but iu the end those
in favor of it were triumphant aud the
recommendation of the Finance Committee was carried.
After the minutes of tho previous
meeting, the report of the Finance
Committee was the first order of business. It recommended the payment
of various accounts and the employment of J. W. Peck as auditor. Aid.
Hillyer raised the question of the discharge of Auditor John Humiltou.
He contended that last year's auditor could draw salary until he was
notified that his services were no
longer required. The question, however, did not interfere with tho ap
proval of the minutes which wore approved of after Aid. Hillyer promised
to bring the auditor question up later.
The report of the Finance Committee wus read und Aid. Hillyur moved
that it be considered clause by   clause.
Aid. Beer moved thut it be accepted
as read but as Aid. Kirkpatrick seconded Aid. Hillyer's motion the latter
was adopted.
All the clauses were passed without
discussion exoept the clause referring
to the bank account. Aid. Beer slated
that the duty of the'Fimince Committee was to ascertain tho best arrangement that tbe City could make regarding the City s account, Aid. Fletcher
thought that the reception of tenders
was Irregular. Aid. Hillyer thought
the Kami) aud expressed the opinion
that the Council should have been
consultid before any tenders for the
bank nccouut were asked for.
Aid. Beer said that the tenders came
before tho Finance Committee in the
regular course of business. The bank
account question was discussed at
some length during which Aid. Beer
said that the tender of the Bauk of
Halifax was the lowest aud was consequently accepted.
Then all the aldermen took part.
Bach hud his opinion as to just where
the City's account should go, the good
or harm it would do the City in
changing it aud the money that would
bo made in accopting the tender of
any bunk. Aid. Fietober and Hillyer
opposed uny change but aftor the mutter was thoroughly talked over the
question was put aud Aid. Beer, MoKillop, aud Kirkpatrick voted in favor of the transfer and Aid. Fletcher
and Hillyer against, Aid Thomson did
not voto.
The report of tho Board of Works
wns then considered. It contained a
clause that the City should take over
its own scavenging and that the
sum of |li,50l) Bhould be allowed the
Boird of Works for this purpose. A
discussion folloved the reading of this
claus*** but   it finally curried.
A clause in the report, which was
also adopted, urged tbe enforcement
of the law requiring land owners to
puy at) cents per foot frontage for scavenging services. The report further
recommended tho construction of sowers ou Bilicu street on Block ill and
then uloug tbe alley way between
Blocks 81, 88, 84, 86 and 11(1 and ou
Victoria street from Ward to Josephine. Sidewalks were also recommended on Baker from Kootenay to
Falls street; ou Ourbonute from Ward
to Stanley,and as the east side of Stanley from Silica to Ourbonute stroet.
Tho touder of J. A. tiny-ward for
lumber for Oity work ut $1) por thousand was   accopted.
City Assessor Straohan presented his
report for the year. It showed that the
total assessment wus $l,(l*43,!!ll. Iu
tho Kast Ward the assessment was
1954,880, and iu the West 9687,470.
Tho total land assessment wus $1.-
171,(11)0 and the total improvements
1470,616, In 1811H tho laud assessment
was 1800,870 aud the improvements
1174,678. This showed a totul Inorease
over lust year's assessment of 9660,869.
Tho court of revision was fixed for
tho ftrHt of June and the Mayor, Aid.
Hillyer, Fletcher, Thomson, and MoKillop were appointed membors of tho
court.
Mr. lnskip wrote submitting another offer from the English capitalists interested in installing a gas plant
in Nelson. His oompany wanted un
exclusive franohiso for 35 years and
would not givo the city a percentage of
the gross receipts. Mr. lnskip was
present und addressed the meeting but
his letter was reoeived and tiled.
John Oroft wroto offering a complete scavenging outfit to the City
for |600. On motion Aid. Fletcher
was authorized to investigate the mutter and roport to tho Council.
Tho question of putting in electric
J'glit metres wns brought up but was
laid over until further Information wns
received. The Mayor nad Oity Engineer were authorized to look into tlio
���lunation of providing the City with a
took ornshor and the Mayor waa also
authorized to order u uniform for the
Chief of Police uftor which the moot-
'"g adjourned,
OHIOAUO LADIES'   QUARTETTE.
A�� Artistic   Performance   Given Bast
Night in the Opera House
Promptly on the rising of   thy   our-
""I* ut the   Opera   House   lust  night,
he Ohiougo I.ady (Quartette came   de
murely on ttriiie stage, dressed iu
black, each with a colored token on
the left shoulder, and at once began
the openmt! piece, "Wake. Little
Kate" It was a simple little ditty,
and although oleverly nml tunefully
rendered the audience were not sure
that they were to have an evening's
entertainment. The feature of the
quartette, and the ono which struck
everybody, was the wonderful alto voice
of Mrs. Alice Raymond, pure, rich
aiui flexible, and managed in this,
as in other parts later on, with the
ease aud grace of a consummate artist.
Something could be heard, too, of a
strong, rich contralto, while the blending of the two soprano voices was distinctly pleasing. The effect of the
whole, however, was disappointing,
the reputation of the company having
prepared the audience for something
finer. Expectation was not reassured by the recitation of Miss Bolkcom,
who gave "Grandfather's Clock,"
the recital of an event of the Revolutionary War of 1770, in which the
British, of course, got the worst of it.
It required some courage, or a quality
of some other . character, to present
this to a Nelson audience.
From this on the company canied
everything by .storm, aud encores
wore the order. The break wns made
by Miss Dunn, soprano, and Miss Lut-
iger, contralto, in their duet, "Go,
Pretty Rose." Both were excellent
voices, highly trained, nnd the song
was capable of the artistic treatment
it received. The recall was too preemp-
tory to be disregarded. Miss Grace
Caborn, the second soprano, who came
next in the first solo of tho night,
was even more enthusiastically received and responded with a pretty littlo
pioce that gave delight. Of the quartette, of which thero were five or six,
the best was an arrangement of Scotch
songs by Mrs. Raymond, "Highland
Laddie," "Comin' thro' tho Rye,"
"Annie Laurie" and "Ye Banks"and
Braes. " This was loudly encored, and
a coon sung that carried much merriment was given in response. Miss
Lutiger's "Clans of the Forge" was
most acceptably rendered, her fine,
rich contralto coming out to great advantage. Perhaps the gem of the
night was Mrs. Raymond's "Daddy,"
pathetic enough to satisfy the most
sentimental,but capable of delicate and
skillful rendering, which it roceived.
Her beautiful voice, clear aud pure as
n bell, charmed the audience. Miss
Bolkcom appeared in two other pieces,
and was successful in gaining tbe full
measure of applause.
Should the Chicago Lady Quartette
ever find themselves within reach of
Nelson again, they will be tbo cause of
muoh disappointment if they do not
give the music lovers of the City another opportunity to hear their sweet
voices. They appear tonight for the
lasi time on "then- present engagement,
wilh au entire change of program mo.

COMMUNICATIONS,
ABOUT   FISH
Editor of The Miner:
Sir :���I bave now had an opportunity of holding a post mortem on a fish
known locally as a "ling". Yesterday a gentlemen, who had managed
to capture one kindly gave it to mo
for that purpose..
The fish is a "Burbot" or "Eel-
Put," the scientific name being "Lota
vulgaris," Tlio '"Burbot" is locally
distributed iu Central aud Northern
Europe, nnd in North America. It is
one of the best fresh-wuter fish for the
culinary artist to exercise his skill on
Sometimes it exceeds three Jfeet in
length. The fish should be skinned
and filetted ; then egg and breadcrumb the filets aud fry in fresh lard.
It would be hard for au epicure to
distinguish the difference to the "Burbot" so oooked uud the old country
sole.

Mr. A. li. Rami hue written Meeers,
Hall anil Murray, mining brokers, of
this city, iu v��**nril to the Athaliusen.
ilint tha KugliNh ���iliin-i'linlili'i:. are
highly pleased with tlio rosultH of the
working ou this property. A Battlement has been obtained from tin*
London Stork Exobanae on tho stuck
in-11 nl to the Kuglish holders, whloh
is uu important, point, for without the
settlement it was ptaotioally Impossible to sell shares in Bngland, Owing
to tha<1.('!auadian shares not burin*.*
been issued they could not be ini-lud
ed, but as soon aa exchange of tbe ex-
innii^ Oatlndiau company shares for
those of tho uow English company
is completed, a settlement of them
���will be secured. Mr. Hand says:
"Arrangements were oompletad, while
I was iu London, for this exchange,
aud the necussury certificates urn'*
books were being prepareiltwheu llleft
there for trausmission lo'tbo Canadian
Office In Nelson, B, 0. lloldewjof tin
Canadian shares should therefoie forward their certificates to E. Nelsou
Fell, at Nelson. for exchange a.-
quickly as possible nn that the settlement referred to may be secured, and
the English market thus made avail
able for Canadian holders. Tbe Stock
Exchange Committee in Londou made
up the last settlement price at 1?
shillings and ii pence, but transaction*-
have boon put through at il. ami
when 1 left Loudon the brokers' quo-
wtious were 17s.. Od, to 32s, Od.
"A dividend will not he declared ini
mediately, although the mine has
actually earned the dividend that was
expected to have boeu paid in April.
owing to the fact of February being
such a cold mouth, and the mill onh
running practically half-time, and thai
they have got the drift in so far thai
the steam will not reach it to work tin
drills properly, aud they will have to
wait until the compressor plant is installed (whioh will bo done just as
soou as the weather permits), the ill-
rectors thought it well not to deoUure
the dividend for the next two or thr**i
months.
"Recent developments have been
wonderfully good, aud it is estimated
that ore to the value of nearly (if nol
fully) $1,000,000 has been proven on
No. 3 ledge alone. The manager, under date of March 2, says that in th,
last 76 feet of the tunnel it was ditli
cult to pick up a single piece of roe.V
without seeing tree gold in it, and an
average of the ledge at that time Ravi
|U pel tou, nnd tbe last clean-ui
showed upwards of ISO por tou saveii
iu the mill and concentrates. "
At the foot of the main shaft iu th.
War Eagle, now down T'.-,*** feet, six
teet of solid ore has been encountered.
���ays the Rossland Miner. Assays
taken this week demonstrate that tin
ore will average 180 per tou. ami
the management is muurallv pleased.
Despite the fact that there is consider
ably over a thousand tons of broker
ore in the workings, the shipment*-
still ooutiuue to be on the small Bidi
"It is very slow work,'' said Man-
ager Hastings yesterday, "getting ool
tins accumulation. It will be anothei
week yet at least beforo we get the
miue into shippiug shape, but ono
���started, will make things lively." As
stated last week, rapid sinking is
now the iiuiiu aim of the management
The rest ot the mine will s*.vn be in *.*,
shape to take care of itself. Me;r,i
while ouly 468 tous were sent to
Trail during the week just ended Th,
shipments ate made uuder the A tree
ment with the Trail smelter to ship ll
least 800,000 tous within -.'4 mouths
It is understood that the time mentioned���two years���will not oomwenot
till June 1 uext. hut the shipments
will be lucreasod as rapdily as the cir
euiustnuce.s will permit. At the pre*
���nt time uo ore is being broken exoept
ou the tV.'o-foot level. The traniwnv
from the big hoistiug plant dowu to
the New Columbia -V Western railway
s.viteh on the Centre Star ground, is
ironed and ready for use. One tide Ol
the new hoist is working, aud all tin
ore shipped out at the soO foot level
Trie electrical compressor has been
running light off and on all Week, tncl
was workiug awuy all right *festerda;
afternoon.    It will   however, be   sonn
time yet before   the War Bagls   company will take over the whole plant.
At present   there   are several distinguished guests at the comfortable headquarters of the jompany, the party t*,<
leg made   up of   lniuiug  aspect* ��
