Washing-on, Feb. 25.���In connection with Admiral Dewey's request
for the battleship Oregon for "political reasons" the published statement
that the Admiral's despatch came in
u icii English is an error. The Department received from him the two
despatches yesterday, one relating to
the arrival of the Yorktown, which
wart in plain English, and the other
relative to the Oregon, whioh was in
the navy code. It was not intended
that this despatch should have heen
given publicity, but in the haste of
preparations of matter to go before the
Cabinet, it esoaped close scrutiny on
the part of Secretary Long und was
permitted to reach the press nlong
with the other onrront routine des-
patches. In the absence of further
news from Dewey, as to the carrying
of the Oregon to Manila, the officials
of both the War and Navy Departments
adhere to their original declaration
that the "political reasons" alluded to
iu the despatch mean simply the necessity of having an adequate naval
foroe to cover the many important
stragetic points iu the immense area
of th* archipelago. There is also
pressing need to cover many other
points where there are important foreign interests at stake so as to relieve
this Government of the reproach of allowing those interested to suffer and
to prevent the pretext, which might
eagerly be seizod by some powers, for
lauding marines at Manila or elsewhere. The presenoe of the Oregon al
Manila would go far toward solving
this problem.

John F. Stevens   Discusses   it Wilh a
Spokane Reporter.
After 'i long conference with President James J. Hill the other day, Mr
John F. Steveus was taken in hand
ny a leportor of the Spokane Spokesman-Review, who was not suoceasfu
in extracting any particular Informs

In relation to the work now being
done by the contractors, Foley Bros.
and thoir associates, with whom Mr.
.Stevnns is connected, he said . "The
ohi.-f efforts on I bo lino of the Kootenai Valley Railway have so far been
directed to putting ill supplies, for af

"How is work progressing on the

"Excellently, I think the work will
be completed about the 1st of July.
About 4,000 men are now employed,
hut that is a smaller foroe than has

Detroit, Mich., Feb. 25.���Hon.
David Mills,Canadian Minister of Jus-
ice, was the principal speaker this i f-
teruoon at the 63rd anniversary exercises of the Detroit Bar Association.
His subject was "The Comparative
Constitution Law of Canada and the
United States." Iu mentioning the
fact that the United States had recently orossed the "Boundary which
marks an Imperial system," Mr.
Mills said :
"You have entered upon the work
begun by the mother of free states a
century ago; you reoognizing your
high calling, have taken up'The White
Man's Burden,' and I am sure that
the feeling of every Canadian is that
Hns uew departure in your historical
development may le of great value to
yourselves and of priceloss advantage
to the world.''
Speaking of the relations betwieu
Canada anil the United States, Mr,
Mills said the Imperial Government
and Canada have always been anxious
f.ir more smypathctic relations with
the United States, but for sonic reason
this feeling has not. always been reciprocated. "When you exteiid your
possessions, however. I believe tha. by

ENJOYABLE   OPERA.
The Metropolitan Company Played   to
Three Big Houses.
After the very ordinary production
nf La Masootte on Friday night the
Metropolitan Opera Company showed
unexpected strength in their afternoi n
and evening performances on Saturday,
'Tho Chimes of Normandy" at the
matinee attracted a largo audience and
nveryone went away well pleased.
The chorus work was tho most noticeable feature, the voices blending well
ind considerable volume being prn-
Inoed, Mr. Smith's interpretation
of the part of Gaspard, the Miser, wa'
a ory clever piece of character work.
Mr. Rising was quite acceptable in
iho role of the Marquis. MissAldrach
added to the irresponsible lightheadedness of Serpolette a degree of
coarseness that entirely spoiled the
part aud removed th" good impression
she had made in ibe title role of La
Masootte. When Flnqttello drew lhe
eharacler he never intended lhat his
Serpolette should shout, at the top of
her voice, "and don't yer forget it!"
with all Iho gusto of a Bowery damsel Miss .lames took her part well
and made a oharming Germaiiis
"Frn Dlavoln" in the evening was
fully as well produced as was "The
Chinies." Mr. Rising was most prominent among the principals and was
surprisingly pleasing in   his   singing.
In tin* two previous performances he
did but lillie, but in lhe title role in
"Fr-H Dlavolo" be bad more tn do and
did it most acceptably. He sang two

serenade  and  the  other  a  laughing

engineers out in  that direotiou, how-
Muscat by British warships, the resurrection of the Khalifa and the reported
death of the Ameer of Afghanistan
were unfolded to the public gaze in
rapid succession, while the proceedings of the Anglo-American Commission at Washington have caused a feeling of deep regret here and the optimistic tone of the British Foreign Office
explanation is not reflected by the general public although the newspapers as
a rule profess to hope that the fresh
attempt to reach an agreement in
tbe autumn will prove more successful.
The Speaker cheerfully remarks:
"The fact that business arrange-
ments ou particular points affecting
large vested interests in both countries, cannot bo satisfactorily reached,
unappreoiably affeots the nations as a
whole. Nations aro still aggregates
and not persons.''
The Spectator says: "Arbitration
seems to be a diflicult mo.lc of settling international disputes. Tbe
professional diplomatists have a right
to chuckle a little. "
The St. James Gazett , during the
course of a long atricle on "America's refusal to accept an umpire,"
headed, "The Inconsistency of the
United States", contends that America
now refuses what she agreed to in
the case of tho Venezuelan arbitration
when King Oscar was empowered to
appoint an umpire.
The events at Manila have boon followed here with intense interest and
there has been general condem iation
of the attempt of the Filipinos to burn
the town. The Speaker calls it a
"Suicide Policy" whloh will only
injure themselves.
The Spectator says : "If the movement of tho negroes and uon-Ttigalos
race in favor of the Americans is
genuine, it will not only yield the
latter material for a Sepoy army, but
what is more important, it will furnish them with the moral justification
of thoir empire." A private cablegram loeeived in London computes
the loss to foreign merchants by tbe
bombardment of Iloilo at $5,000,000.
Only one European warehouse, it appears, escaped.
The London Municipalities Bill introduced in the House of Commons
on February 2!l,x by Mr. Arthur J.
Balfour, the Qovernmeul leader in the
House, has heen well received generally. The must striking fealttre of
the Hill is   the   revival of Ihe ancient
City of Westminster which will comprise the whole of the enormous valu
idle und busy area from Temple Bar
tn Knights' Bridge and frum Oxford
street lo the River Thames, in which
are included nearly all Ihe theatres
clubs, Government offices, parks,Royal
palaces, embassies and the aristocratic
districts of Belgrnvia and Mayfair.
It will be live times ils population
and it will be a serious rival of the
ancient City of London, whose rale-
able value is ��4,460,006,000, while that
of the Oity of Westminster is ��4,800,-
000.01)0. The Imperial and social importance of Ihe uhw city will be tre-
menduous.
An announcement, complimentary to
the United States, was made in Ihe
House uf Commons this week when
the President of the Hoard nf Trade,
Mr. O. T- Ritchie, promised lo ml induce a bill to compel railroad companies tu adopt automatic couplings,
Mr. Ritchie in so doing, said that lhe

times thi- week with Baron Yon Ron-

Associated   Press   that   the     German
Ambassador at Washington, Dr. Von
Hollnben, has represented to the
United States Government, informally
and in friendly manner, the advisability of recalling Mr. William Chambers, tho Chief Justice of Samoa. The
German Government is of the opinion that Mr. Chambers, since the publication of the letter to his brother,
which appeared in the uewsp ipiirs.
is an "Improper person to represent
the three Governments at Samoa."
It is further suid that he was put there
in order to represent the protecting
powers ami that for him to criticise
one of thoso powers,"makes him manifestly unfit to serve any longer iu Ins
present capacity."

Paris. Feb. 25.���Tho Figaro says
that among the papers seized at the
headquarters of the League of Patriots
yesterday were letters addressed to
senior officers among the generals, inciting them to the execution of a coup
d'etat. The Government, however,
knowing the officers addressed to be
above suspicion, has decided to make
no further enquiries in the matter bo
far as tbey are concerned. Government agents during the night and this
morning made many domiciliary visits in Paris, based upon information
outlined by the seizure of the papers
in question. These included letters
sent to prominent generals urging a
military coup d'etat. It has not been

THE KETTLE  RIVER ROAD.
By a majority vote the Winnipeg
Board of Trade have placid themselves "on record as strongly in favor
of grouting a charter" to the Kettle
River Railway. This action is based,
as expressed in the resolution itself, on
the ground taken by the Board at the
time of the disallowance of Manitoba
railway charters. They then "advocated freedom in railway building,
and opposed interference from outsider! in the purely local affairs of the
Province." They are for freedom
yet, and presumably also against outside interference.
It is a pity in that case that they
have resolved on interference in the
present instance. But this is a little
inconsistency unit may be overlooked
in men who, in their own estimation,
are so unselfishly devoted to the publio interest. The greater pity is thev
displayed such ignorance in their resolution. There is no similarity whatever hetween the conditions here am
the disallowance of Ma i tola railway
barters. Manitoba was fighting, nut
so much for a railway, as for a principle. It was fighting for both, undoubtedly, but the principle was the paramount consideration, Manitoba wns
desirous of establishing the feet tb
she was as free to charter railvays
within ber jurisdiction as were the
other Provinces. This wns denied by
the Federal GoverJBJCul of tlie day,
hence the conflict.
There is no conflict iu British Co
lunibia. This Province is not the vie
tim of Federal oppression or tyranny
We are not seeking to give Mr. Cor-
bin ii charter, in protest ng.-tinst the
Federal power of disallowance. Mr.
Oorbln bus not asked fur a local charter. It has been open to him to do
so, but he passes by Victoria nnd gees
to Ottawa, It is a purely Ottawa
affair, and Provincial authority or
rights or privileges are in no shape oi
manner involved. If the Biitilh Columbia Legislatr.ro had been endeavoring to secure Mr. Corbin a charter for
that part of his railway it Ih proposed
to coustruct in the Province, and if
the Federal power had been disallow
ing its efforts, there would bo reason
iu the resolution. Hut nothing of
this kind has been taking place. On
the contrary, being of Provincial interest, the Legislature has ventured to
express an opinion on Mr. Corbiu's application, and that opinion, supported
by an ovtrwhelming majority, was
that the application should not be
granted. Therefore the Winnipeg
Board of Trade is nol only guilty of
outside interference, nut Interference
directly Oppoied to the only expressed
wish of this Province. Before passing
another resolution on the subject, its
in-unborn will do well to consider lhat
it will bo quite lime enough to tender their sympathy when there is
either desire or occasion for it,
The minority members had some reason for their course. All hough the
charter is for a lew miles of Provincial road, the entire West ll interested
iu it. Winnipeg jobbers cannot view
with unconcern the proipeot of the
trade of un Important notion oi Southern British Columbia being diverted
to American channels, and us thn
application is to Ottawa, not to Viotoria, tbey aro quite within their
rights in protesting against it.
was not given the general   impression
is that it will be   favorable   to the applicants. Tho Companies will endeavor
to agree on terms. "
Mr. Blair has taken the right stand ;
tbe only stui'l possible,in fact, if faith
with the country is to be. kept. Tbe
Or

w
panics shuuld have the rig]
the tracks, subject to regulations approved by the Committee. The application of the Bedlington & Nelson is
the first mado, and to deny it would
be to hold the wish and intention of!
Parliament in contempt.
The endeavor to escape its obligation
is   uot    creditable   to   the   Canadian
Pacifu    But that Company is continually doing   things   to   incur the sue-
pioion iiud   animosity  of   the  public.
it appears   to le incapable of  dealing j
frankly and generously with any mat-
ter or ou any qu stion.    It   was  glad
enough to  agree   to   this condition in
order to get its   subsidy, but   the subsidy   safe it uow   seeks   to  repudiate
the terms.    The Canadian   Pacific has |
been of immense   benefit   to   Western
Canada, aud if it  has  not the  entire
sympathy   aud   good will   of Western I
Oanadians it has onlv  itself to blame.
To   express   it  shortly     and   perhaps
not too  elegantly,   the  people  believe |
it is much too hoggish

Winnipeg Board of Trade favoring a
charter for the Kettle River road. Mr
Whitla, one of the largest wholesalers of that city, said that if the Corbin railway got in. British Columbia
would lose millions which the C. P. R.
would otherwise invest in smelters
and railway!. This is something for
Kootenay miners and merchants 11

Notwithstanding the (act that there
seems to be little likelihood of tho Provincial Government making a grant
to the Reverend Bisters for a bospitol
in Nelson,nlong the lines of the resolution adopted by tne Oonnoil at iti meeting of hist Monday, controversy in
regard to the s .b.jeot still oontilines,
The letter ill 'Lhe Miner of Saturday,
signed "Oivis" is severely aritioized
on all sides and has called for n reply
from Dr. George A. B, Hall, physi-
cinn of the hospital. In his letter the
doctor enters unqualified denials to
charges made hy "Oivis" and regrets
that the matter eiinnot be discussed
without introducing misrepresentations and personalities "Oivis" also
comes in for a roast because of his failure to put his name to a letter iu
which he makes charges against a
charitable institution and those connected with it In this connection it
is noticeable that those who hnve
written in defense of the Kootenay
Lake General Hospital have written
over their own signatures This is
as it should be aud The Miner will accept no further communications in
this discussion except* over tho signature (for publication 1 of the writer.
This will leave no room for anonymous charges.
The letter of Dr. Hall in reply to
"Civis" ia as follows:
"In the disonssion of questions
such as the one before us at
the present time is it not really too
had that they cannot be argued upon
facts, aud let the best merited side
win without introducing insinuations,
misrepresentations and personalities,
snob as was the sum and substance in
the letter in this morning's Miner
signed 'Oivis'?
"It is mean man, indeed, who will
write charges against anyone, and
inoro especially against a charitable
institution and those connected then -
with, aud be ashamed to put his name
to the same. Such a person is neither
a credit to the side he supports (mid
I feol sure in this instunco is not desired) nor a detriment to the side he
opposes. It we judge "Oivis' " mental enpneity by tho time it took him to
formulate and write his urticle, we
will probably have a true estimate of
his ability.
"Suffice it to say, tho charges in
the above mentioned letter, so far us
my diities are concerned (and I nm
speaking for myself), are notoriously
false, which I am prepared to prove if
made by a responsible person, In conclusion, Mr. Editor, I venture the
opinion that tho person signing himself "Oivis" has not been in the Kootenay Lake General hospital half a dozen
times altogether, never contributed
one cent to its support, and furthermore is not n voting citizen, and I do
not propose wasting time and ink nn-
sweriiiK anonymous letters written by
such persons, as it is well known such
people have not, any weight with the
public.    Yours respectfully.
"(UOT.  A. B. HALL."
Judge J. A Forin also makes reply
to tho recent letter written by Mr
Kirby,   He says-
"1 beg ,0 point out thnt the number
of days on which Mr. Kirby buses his
letter is for the charity patients only ;
that is, he only calculates on lis i a
tients instead of 170. I think my letter giving statistics is clear. Now.
Mr. Editor, nil wo ask is that people
should visit our hospital, then, if
(boy think it should be conducted differently let them become members of
the sooiety, which they can do for the
small sum of flO per unnuni. They
will find the directors most amenable
to good ndivce. It may not be as perfect as it can bo made, but if instead
of throwing stones from the outside
they would come in and help us by
their advice; we would certainlv welcome them. I am quite sure lhat
overy director on the board will will
ingly givo way for new men, und if
tbe City Council can see their way clei r
to help us   we   will   be pleased, I   um

FKOM THE   ORANGE LODGE
This Week's Attraction at   the Nelson
Opera House.
Buchanan's  Dramatic   Players   will
be the attriciton   nt the Nelson Opera
House  all   tnis   week.    The oompany
i-i a large  one, carrying irs own   band
and orchestra.    There will be a change
o* bill each   night.    The  play selected
for   tho opening   will   he the   English
'comedy-drania. "Queen's   Evidence."
| "I wns not in   town very long"   said
j the   malinger   of the company to  Tin
Miller lust   evening, "before Iliad   it
I well impressed ou me tlnl Nelson was
I not a western milling   camp   ns   most
people imagine aud that no horse play
Or vulgarity   would   ge   down     here,
l We had no idea ot indulging in either.
Such complaint not  only   speaks  well
! for the better taste   of 'Nelson,   however, but will force us to be  especially
| care'ul *in providing nothing   but the
most legitimate amusement."
The military band will play on the
streets at noon and in the evening of
each day. The curtain rises this evening at 8:.-)().
M'LEOD THE WINNER.
His Rink Sncceels   in   Capturing   the
Forin Trophies.
Norman McLeod's rink won the
Forin trophies. The final game -was
played Saturday afternoon between
McLeod's rink and Judge Foriu's, the
former winning with five points up.
The trophies were presented at the
conclusion of the game. They are in
the form of curling stones, made of
gold and arranged for a watch obarm.
Around the stone is engraved "Nelson Curler, 1898-99."
The rinks in the final contest were:
Lawrence Richardson
Kinghom Lamont
Wallace Rae
McLeod���13. Forin���8.
Frank Donaldson is in trouble because he assaulted a Chinaman employed at the Bherbrook House. The
assault took place Friday and Donaldson was in the police court Saturday.
Pending a report from a physician
as to thu extent of the Chinaman's in
juries the case was continued until:
today.
A. B. Cooper, general agent of the
Passenger department of the Albert
Leu route, and L. 13. Graham, com
meroial agent, arrived iu Nelson last
niu'ht and will leave this morning
for Revelstoke on thoir way to the
0 inst. Mr. Cooper is a native of To-
routo, Out,, and entered into the railway business in the Uuited States sev- j
*ral veins ago, He is very much im-
pressed with Nelson and its surround-
logs and will holiday heie next summer.
The Nelson Gun Club held its first j
shoot of the season Saturday afternoon ;
on the Hats below the C. P. R. depot, I
and not one bird escaped. It wns \
a veritable slaughter. There were
present, Messrs. G. E. 0. Martin,
John G.Hirsoh, Percy Criddh, Dr. Sy-
nionds, Frank Fletcher, H. E. Hens-
ley, E. H, H. Applewhaito, J. M.
Lay, A. F. Sergeant, F. H. Forbes,
A. M. Johnson and others. The new-
traps which have been recently receiv-
e 1 were in use and a portion of the
large supply of clay birds bit the dust.
The only suspicions circumstance
in connection with the shoot is the
fact that the members absolutely refused to make public the scores. They
simply made the statement that "not
one bird escaped ;" for as one ot the
marksmen added, "if we didn't hit
it, it went to pieces when it hit for
the ground was hard.''

SLOCAN CITY TRANSFERS.
Mr. Smith Curtis and Mr. Wallaoh
have returned from Montreal and be-
Ing in Greenwood the other day gave
an interview to the Boundary Cieek
Times: "It was no long-*r necessary I
to seek capital in London or the!
United States, There was plenty of;
money in Montreal seeking investment in good mining properties. The
reason that Boundary Creek stands so
well in Montreal is not hard to tind
Mr. J. P. Graves BUOceeded in interesting some of the most prominent :
business people in Montreal iu the
Knob Hill and Ironsides, the Lincoln
and City of Paris, ami his smelter
OOtnpany. Montrealers also acquired ;
the B. 0. Now all these ventures
11 have dealt kindly with the investors, j
104 j and they are ventures which created a
jo good impression. Montrealers lost
j? I money in mining veuturos elsewhen ,
'f>. I hut none iu Boundary Creek. The
���21 Montreal capitalists are now ready
and willing to take hold of Boundary
Creek properties. All they want is
the assurance that they are not dealing iu wild-cats, and that there is
somo probability that the expenditure
12 of money in development will make
It was this favorable feeling
towards Boundary Creek that materially assisted Mr. Wullaoh in the disposal of 10.000 shares of King Company's stock to leading Montreal eapi
talists. Mr. Wallaoh is an old Montreal newspaperman, He was financial
editor of Ihe Star for several years and
was ill touch with the Montreal investors. They were soon convinced
tne Oro Denoro is a big property in a
big district, and soon bons-ht 100.000
shares at 12 cents. " Mr. Wallach has
since beeu authorized to sell 100,000
more of Oro Denoro, but at 25 cents
instead of 12.

Other Greenwood items are :
M. D. MacLeod of Anaconda has
sold tho Baltimore claim in Greenwood camp to the Baltimore Company,
which wns recently organized hy John
B. Moody of London, Out. The price
paid was $8000 cash. The Baltimore
is the old Clifton, which was worked
for some time by the Coolgardie Company.
The Oro and Mabel, two promising
iiroperites in White's Camp, owned by
John Douglas, of Midway, were bonded a few days ago to Edward C.
Finch, of Rossland. The consideration is $8000, 10 per cent. down. The
deal was arranged by E. A Bielen-
berg.
There was quite a skirmish for Mor-
ison stock on Saturday, when it be

Ou Tuesday, the rawhiders came
dowu from the Wakefield , their work
for the neasou being over.
A snow-boat, to be used in hauling
the ConiHtock ore, lias just been turned
out from the shop of S.  Daigle.
Tho Bosun mine has sent out 40 tons
during the last week. This brings
the total output of the mine, siuce
the first of January, up to iho tons.
The mines in this vicinity are gradually increasing their forces and making preparations for a big summer's
development work. This week, seven
miners packed their blankets to tho
Emily Edith mine and six were put
on at the Com stock,
W. Toinliuson, the well known mining expert of New Denver, paid a
visit to the Noouday claim, on Monday. Ho expressed considerable sur
prise at the amount of ore tho lessees
hud taken out and u.ickod. during the
short time they have been at work.
He regards the Noonday us the making
of a big property.
Ralph (iilletle passed through town |
on Friday, coining from the Hamilton j
group, on Twelve Mile, in whieh he |
is half owner. He says thut work is I
being done in No 2 iunncl, which is
now 86 foot. This claim lies about |
two miles from thclalo; adjoins the
Get-There-Eli, of which such good re-
porta ure in circulation.
From four to twenty in-hes of ore
has beon struck in the lower tunii'l of
the Adams claim, one of the Canadian
Group  near Saudou.   This  taps  the
tiiis winter began. For some tinn
the quantity thai will be Bhipprd
from ibis place will be light. The
t'oads will be breaking up and it, will
in consequence be a difficult matte
*o get ore dowu. A much lareei
quantity of   oie   went   nut from   tin
a*iin  durina   the   past   winter  th*.!
niring any previotl8 season in its brie
history; and the outlook is that tl*.
