DEATH IN A
SNOWSLIDE
Two Men Burled Under Many
Feet of Snow While
Sleeping.
One Perished and the Other
DuglHlmself Out ln 36
Hours.
It was announced last evening that
there would be no inquest held on the
body of the lato Fred Lowden, who
was killed by a snowslide on Kokanee
mountain. Chris Sherbert is now at
the Kootenay Lake General Hospital
with bandaged hands and feet, gradually recovering from tbe effects of his
terrible experience, although it is uncertain yet whether be will lose part
of his feet. His story an told yesterday at the hospital to a Minor reporter
showed a truly marvelous escape on
his part. The cabin stands iu the
main Kokanee range about 1.000 foot
below the summit, and separated from
the Molly Gibson group by a 'ow Hogback mountain, lt was built in 18911,
and occupied each summer since while
the owners of the claim wore developing their propeitc. Sherbert stated
tbat tho first fall when leaving the
cabin for tho winter he had placed
rows of stakes along tbe side of the
mountain in the vicinity of the cabin
to ascertain if snow slides ever came
down that way, but these stakes had
stood intact until Saturday night.
On Saturday night at about 10
o'clock, the occupants of the eabia
had been in bed about half an hour.
Thc oabin was a strong well-built
one, measuring 10 by 20, and the two
bods wrre on opposite sires of it.
Suddenly, Sherbert stated, lie heard
a tremendous roar and crash, followed
immediately by a solid weight of soft
snow pressing bim down hard on the
bed. ne lay there for a minute unable to tell what had happened, having been asleep He was lying on
his face and when he realized what
had happened, lie wriggled and finally
managed to turn over on his back
after a lot of exertion. When this
���was accomplished, and finding to his
joy that he could breathe freely.be sot
to work to extricate himself from bis
blankets;after what seemed an ago he
got one arm free, and then tbe othor.
His only method of movement was to
break the snow olf with his hands and
squeeze it into hard balls, gradually
getting a space of a few inches clear
around his body, then slowly and
laboriously be worked himself into a
Bitting position, squeezing the lumps
of snow underneath his head and
shoulders. When this was done he
started to burrow upwards. The snow
was wot and already partially paoked
dowD and breaking the pieces off with
bis bare bands after a slioit time
became most laborious, but be was
fighting for life and inch by inch he
worked his way up till further progress was stoppod by two boards.
Along these be wormed his way and
then upwards again. Twice again he
encountered boards in the two nights
and ovor a day that it took him to
cover the few foet between himself
and daylight and freedom. It was a
desperate struggle for life.
When ho emerged, clad only in the
remnants of a thin flannel shirt bis
hands and feet were badly ftostbitten
and be was almost totally exhausted.
Tho snow was piled level over the
walls of tho cabin,the roof lying seme
distance Hway In the snow. While
struggllngs in the snow below ho hud
three or four times heard faint noises
which he know to bo Lowden also
fighting for life, but in his condition
lie could do nothing to aid his
comp..nion.
A short distance away he knew
there wore men working al the Molly
Gibson an.) ho made his way across
the snow as fast as IiIb partially
crippled condition would permit.
After bo orossod the hogback he called
us loudly as he could, hut for some
time without effect. At last,lie states,
one man left t hose who wore work
ing and climbed some distance towards
him, but then turned back, tbe others
watching him but paying no attention. He Dually leached the camp and
(old of the terrible catastrophe that bad
occurred, and also how Lowdon was
at that lime lying buried under many
leet of snow,     The  mon employed  at
the Molly Gibson aro mostly Italians
with a few French, aud he bad considerable trouble in explaining the
situation but finally thoy started up
the bill and he gave out.
Shortly after dark they returned
and wh?n ho asked them where Lowden was he was told tliat they had
dug down till they could see his face
and that he was dead, Sherbert tried
to porsuaue tbem to go abek and dig
out the tody but this they refused to
do, saying it waB not safe to go back
there for fear of another slide. He
could not get them to return but in
the morning tried again to persuade
them although suffering considerably
from his hands and feet. Finally be
offered them first (5 each and then 810
to uny four who would go. Tbe foreman said that they would go for the
latter sura, but the whole lot who
were there would have to go, and
Sheibtrl, who thought tbat porbaps
Lowden was still alive suffering tlm
agonios that he had gone through,
signed an agreement promising to pay
li. Cortiana (100 for services rendered
in getting out the body ot F. Lowden.
They left about 7 o'clock, getting
back three hoars later with the body,
wrapped In tlie blankets that he had
been sleeping iu. Sherbert with the
body was ttien taken down to the
landing where word waB sent to Nelson, and Dr. Ilawkoy left immediately to see what could be done. The
tug Halys made a special trip down
bringing in the body and Sherbert
lato Tuesday night.
Lowden was a magnificently formed
man. of almost herculean strength and
the body showed that he had mrrie a
hard struggle for life, the nails of the
hand being torn off where he had dug
them into the snow and debris.
Louis Cortiana, brother of the man
in whose favor the note was made out,
and foreman of the Molly Gibson
mine,was seen by a reportei in regard
to the matter. He stated that they
had not seen Sherbert coming down
the hill, and when he arrived and
aftei they had understood what had
happened they went up. Oo digging
dorrn to Lowden thoy saw by bis face
that he was dead and as they believed
it was against the law to touch a
dead man unless in the presence uf a
policeman they did not try to dig him
out. and caino back again. Ho also
said that a Doard lay across Lowden's
necu so tbat ha must have been held
there and smothcied. Tho next morning they were offered the money to
got out the body and take it down to
the landing and they accepted the
offer.

RECORD OF THE SUNSET.
Sandon,March 12.���Tne Sunset mine
in tho McGuigan basin has made a
splendid record in the past 15
months, During that period it has
nettod its four owners $12,000, besides
paying (10,000 for tho mine and for

John Daily nnd Henry C'ookshutt.
Washingtsn, March 12.���The senate
committee on immigration today
agreed to report the Chinese Exclusion
bill,known as tho Mitchell-Kahu measure. It is substantially tho same as the
modified bill submitted by the Pacific
toast committee, only a few verbal
corrections having been made.
A point wbich occasioned much consideration by the committee was
whether or not Chinese should be excluded lrom the Philippines, or
whether the whole proposition should
be loft to the Philippine commission.
The committee agreed with tlio principle of absolute exclusion, taking
the ground that the United States
wantod to ietain the Philippines, and
that the latter wore as much opposed
to tlie Chinese as were the Americans.
The point about which the committee
debated at length was tho excluding
of Chinese seamen from ships of
Amerioan register. This proposition
also was retained in the bill,but with
a proviso to tbe effect that in case of
accident, stress of weathor or serious
illness, the captain of a vessel may
ship a crow lor the voya'.'e upon which
he may have entered. The provisions
regarding the privilege of transit of
Chinese across tho U. S. aro changed
in phraseology, but remain practically
tho same in effect. There alsojire ������.:���-
bal charges in the provision concerning tbe detention of Chinese who seek
entry at American ports and the following penalty is provided for fail ne
to observe tbis provision :
"Every person bound under tbis section to detain a Chinese person who
shall refuse or wilfully neglect
promptly to perform sueh duty shall
be deemed guilty of a felony, and on
conivction Bhall be punished by a fine
of not loss than $1,000 or moro than
(5,000, or by imprisonment for a term
not less than one year, or by both uuoli
fine and imprisonment." The paragraph concerning the return of
Chineso is changed so as to read as
follows:
"Tne duty of returning Baid Chinese
person is hereby imposed on tho master, owner, consignee or agent of the
vessel and on the railway corporation,
its general officers and agents, and on
the owners or general officors nnd
agents of other transportation linos or
modes of conveyance, collectively and
severally, binding him to the port at
which entry is denied him, or aiding
him thereto."
"Every person bound under this
section to return a Chinese person,who
shall refuso or wilfully neglect
promptly to perform such duty,is subject to fine and imprisonment, and
subordinate offioers, agents and employes also are subject to penalties."
Aiding in the escape of Chinese held
in detention is mado a felony, punishable both by lino and imprisonment.
A new provision applies the exclusion
provisions of the bill to Chinese who
enter as merchants, students and the
like, and become laborers,

1900 has been over 40 per cent.; it
was over 50 per cent, from 1899 to
j 1900. The value of the product in
j 1900 was $9,280,5115, The imports of
Portland cement in 1900 were over
2.1100.000 barrels. The total consumption of Portland cement in 1900 was
o'er 10.70o.U00 barrels, more than
8,000,000 barrels greater than It was
in 1899, The report states that high
grade cement Is manufactured more
cheaply iu tlie U. S. than in Europe,
is sold nearly a dollar cLeapcr per

GOVERNMENT OWNERSHIP.
New York, Match 12.���Martin A.
Knapp, chairman of the intei-State
Commerce commission, delivered a
lecture tonight in Cooper Union on
transportation iu which he advocated
the government ownership of all
railways.
Most of the promoters of tho Pacific
Portlcan Cement Oo. are residents of
this city. The deposits which the
company is operating are located on
the Tend d'Oreille river in Washington. The Newport Minor ot a recent
issue has the following regarding the
company: Tho Pacific Portland
Cement Co. is constructing a cement
manufacturing plant at lone, r,0 miles
below Newport, w'men will bo completed and in operation before tbe
elose of the present year. Newport
will be the business headquarters and
distributing point for this concern.
which purposes establishing at least
two industries of a kindred nature as
soon as the construction work in hand
is completed. The intention of the
company is to manufacture three
brands of cement, to wit: Pacific
Portland cement, Newport Hydraulic
cement, and Pcud d'Oreille Hydraulic
cement.
On interviewing Thomas Procter,
who with nis co-directors in Nelson,
is looking after tbo interests of his
company it was learned lhat tbe late t
advices are that the first sample lot of
cement arc now being manufactured
in the preliminary plant, and are
being shipped as samples to railways,
smeltei plants and city engineers, bo
that the quality may he tested.
'It is anticipated," said Mr, Proctor,"that tho company will be able to
fill orders for any quantity of eament,
according to tho kind desired, within
90 days. The analysis of the last
sample received from the company's
works is as follows!
Por cent
Silica 25.04
Alumina  8.70
Lime    02.20
Iron  3.18
Magnesia      nil
Alkalis     nil
"The analysis shows," continued
Mr. Proctor, "our Portland coment to
be equal to any manufactured in the
world, and with the important
patented devices used in our plant the
assuianeo is that tlio output will bo of
uniform quality. This uniformity is
of great importance, as most of the
coments on the market cannot guarantee uniornnty, whictt is so essential.
"Tho company has its own sawmill
running at the site of its works and
now that the severe frosts of the winter are about over tho construction of
the main works is being rapidly proceeded with. The bunk houses, cook
house, assay ofliee and manager's residence are completed. Thoro is ample
room for 50 men in the bunk bouse.
A flume and a ditch a mile and a half
long are finished. The power to be
used will be furnished by Pelton
water wheels of 400 horso power
capacity.
"Tho company," Mr. Procter said,
"has made arrangements as io freight
rates with the railways and steamboats. I expect, however, shortly to
proceed to Now Yolk for the purpose
of having a flrst class steamer constructed. This boat, besides transporting the freight and cement for the
company, will also do a regular transportation business along the river. It
Is expeoted that tho sawmills will
furnish considerable traffic for it, as
it will deliver lumber for them at the
railway at Newport.
"The consumption of coment,"
said Mr. Procter, "Is very largo and
in gathering statistics concerning it 1
bave learned the following facts:
Its production is distributed over several states, including Pennsylvania,
Now Jersoy, Illinois, Michigan, New
York, Ohio,Colorado, Indiana, Texas,
Oeorgia and West Vingnia. According to the report of the mineral
resources of the United States for 1900
tbe production of 2-1 cement works in
1894 was 798,000 barrels; in 1899
thirty-six works produced ovor 5,000,-
000 barrels and in 1900 fifty works produced 8.492.000 barrels, more than the
total domestic product and the imports
combined in 1899. Tho average rate

CUBAN TARIFFS.
Compromise   May   Re Affected   on   20
Per Cent lleeiproeol HoMs.
Washington, Marcli 12 ���Overtures
bave been made for a com promise of
the conflict over tariff concessions to
Cuba, and there are evidences tbat the
two elements in the Republican party
will eonio together, probably on a
proposition to have the 20 per cent,
reciprocal reduction apply for uno
year from next December, and covering tlie sugar crop. It is understood
tbat Chairman Payne and Represents*
live Dalzell mado tho overtures
toward an agreement. One of the
loading members of tbe opposition
sain that Messrs. Payne and Dalzell
had mado the suggestion to him and
had asked for an answer. This was
folllowed by a hasty canvass of opposition members,which developed wide
differences of views, Representative
William Aldon Smith said no compromise would bo accepted nntil a meeting was held where it could be delib-
elated.
Representative Tawncy said the limitation of time was immaterial and
that no compromise conld be effected
which affected manufactured products
without affecting similar union manufactured products. Soon after lho offers
of comprcmiso were made, the leaders
of the element opposed to the Ways and
Means committee plan called a conference in tho rooms of William Allien
Smith. Soon ;t0 members were present
and the discussion lasted about two
hours. The senitinent was rather unfavorable to accepting the plan of 20
per cent reduction and some one pret-
ent favored rejecting the plan, but it
was orged against this course that so
long as overtures for adjustment had
been mado in gcod faith, it was only
proper to meet tho committee representing the Ways and Means, and Mr.
Payne and his associates therefore
were advised that ihey would bo met
by a committee fiom the other side.

OUR SPRING
ANNOUNCEMENT
TBERE ARE OTHERS.
The Trail Creek News says that the
Nelson Miner is the only paper in the
province which found fault with the
proceedings of the Associated Boards
of Trade. The News is very much
mistaken, as the Sandon Paystreak
had an editorial which criticized some
of its actions to the extent of over a
page. The Slocan Drill also pays its
respects to the augnst body in vigorous though somewhat severe style, as
follows:
An aggregation of commercial
freass.known as the associated boards
of trade, met in annual conclave at
Kaslo last week. As was to bo expected from such a gathering, a host
of resolutions weie proposed upon a
variety of subjects and solemnly
adopted. So long as the counter
jumpers struck to their owl legitimate line of thought they did well,
but they became ambitious,and sought
other fields wherein to air their ideas
and do their trick at resolving. And
therein they erred and erred grievously. They adopted a resolution dealing with the provincial mineral tax,
under which they allege the mining
industry is groaning, and that despite
the government figures of progress to
the contrary. In their resolution, the
freaks asl' to have crown grin ted
claims do $400 worth of work each
year or pay a tax of fifty cents an
acre. Uncrown granted claim? are to
do 880 worth of work annually and
pay $12.50 for recording same. Money
so raised to be that much less to be
taken from the tax on the output of
mineral. Why can't these .lohnnies
attend to their own knitting and leave
matters beyond tlieir ken alone'.' By
their resolution the freaks seek to
propitate the mine manager, and entirely overlook tho injury they are
doing to the pioneer and mainstay of
the country���the prospector. Has he
not enough to pay as it is from year to
year without adding more to his
agony. Every step he takes in his
career ls taxed, from the taking out
of his license to tho crown granting of
his claim. If these company ducks
down in Rossland would be content
with smaller salaries and establish
economical management rules, there
would be less talk about ''unjust taxation." As lur the associated boards
of trade, they have exhibited great
aptitude in evolving 'assinine
legislation.
A NOVEL IUEA.

on mining at depth alluded to the increase iu heat in shafts nnd a subscriber calls attention tojthe Interesting iact that scientists now purpose
to utilize, if possible, thu heat of the
internal fires of the earth and to turn
them into motive power. At the same
time he furnished a clipping from an
eastern paper which states that I'ro-
fesMir William Bollock, of Columbia
university, has outlined a plan fur
securing steam from the heat which is
to be found in the earth. The professor estimates that at a depth of
12,000 feet thero wonld be found a
temperature of 840 degrees, lie proposes to sink two Wells 50 feet apart
to a depth of l'.'.UUO feet. liy means
of heavy charg's of dvnninite lie calculates that lie ean blast out a fissure
in the rock whieii will c mneet the

According to a recent census bulletin Miere are 114,081 males and 64,576
females in British Columbia. Tbis
leveals that there are 49,505 more
males than, females. ,., Of the males
74,183 are unmarried and of the
females :i4,54il are single. Of course a
large number of both sexes who are
unmarried are not yet old enough, but
even tiking these iuto consideration
the proportion of the single is large.
The government should establish a
mariiige bureau.
The Canadian Mining institute at
its recent meeting in Montreal, which
1 asted for two days, March lith and
7lb, adopted a resolution to tho effect
that in view of tho great extent of the
Dominion, and tho long distances
to be traveled by members in older
to attend the meetings of the institute, it is expedient to organize local
brunches in mining towns camps and
other centres. These branches are to
be subject to the constitution, bylaws
and charter of the institute. The move
is a good one as it will afford opportunities for more frequent meetings,
prumote the reading of papers and
interchanging of ideas and thoughts
on mining subjects which cannot fail
to be beneficial. It will also increase
the membership of the institute and
widen the scope of its usefulness.
The V. V. and E. railway has succeeded in defeating the effort made
to keep it from entering the Kettle
River valley by the promoters of the
(irand Forks and Republic railway,
this intelligence will be welcomed by
all who desire to see the Boundary
enjoying the benefits of competing
railways. The policy of keeping out
competition in transportation, if it
prevailed, would be most injurious.
Let there be a fair and open field and
no partiality shown any particular
transportation concern. Give all the
railway companies that desire to build
in this section an opportunity as it is
impossible to have too many roads in
a country which must have cheap
transportation in order to successfully
develop the mineral resources.

tell you how tliaukful I feel for the good

wonderful effect of yonr Asthmalene, for the cure of ABthma. My wife has
beeu afflcted with spasmodic nsthma for tho past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to seo your sign upon your
windows on 180 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmalene.
My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using ono bottle her Asthma hns disappeared

REQUEST FOR COOPERATION.
Surrounding Towns as to Work   With
Tourist Association.
The comraittoe of the Tourist Association has commenced their work by
sending tbe following letter to representative men in the surrounding
towns soliciting the suppoit to the
project, and in view of the fact that
the benefits to be derived from the
work of the association will not bo
confined to any one city it is expected
tbat there will be a liberal response to
the appeal:
Nelson, H. C,  March 8, 1902
Dear sii,���At a publio meeting held
here ou March 4th, it was decided to
form a Tourist Association covering,
if possible the wholo of Southwest
Kootenav. As we feel that in order
to make it a success and obtain important results by advertising our country
and placing its attractions before the
public at a distance, it is absolutely
necessary for all sections to join
hands.
Our desire is to obtain the opinions
of the merchants and business men of
each section and if the project meets
with general approval to organize
looal boaids at each point, when all
matters appertaining to eaoh section
will he under their supervision. In
that way the assoeiaion can got up an
attractive, well illustrated pamphlet,
will endeavor to obtain the co-operation of the different railways in its
distribution. It is also the intontion
of the association to appoint a good
live man as secretary who could visit
each section when necessary.
We have already started au associa
tion here. The membership fee is
fixed at (1, and so far we have met
with great suceose, having obtained a
membership of about ISO, with the
probability of getting from 50 to 100
more.
We shall be glad if you will take
this mattor up with friends in your
neighborhood and let us have your
views as to the assistance we might
expect from your section. We shall
be pleased to get this infomation at as
early a date as possible. Yours respectfully,
(Sg.)     J. FRED HUME,

BOUNDARY REDISTRIBUTION.
Editor Miner���Referring to the lot-
tor of Mr. Smith Curtis and your re-
murlts thereon in tbo matter of tne
resolution of the Associated hoards of
trado on tho subject of additional representation for the Rossland riding,
the recommedstion of  the  convention
is meant to be that an extra member
bo immediately given to that riding
as a measure of temporary relief. It
was framed to suit the views of some
present who stated that theie was reason to believe that the government
would favorably consider sue'n a suggestion. I think Mr. Curtis was
quoted as having expressed some hope
that such au arrangment would secure
the consent of the legislature. There
was no intention to impair the claim
of the territory covered by the operations of the association to the representation to which by its population
it will be entitled, when a general
redistribution is effected.
As Mr. Curtis points out, au equitable and conveient readjustment of the
representation of tlio Boundary distriot will involve changes is East Yale
as well as in Rossland riding, and
this can only be accomplished as pait
of a comprehensive scheme covering
the whole province. It appeared to be
the mature judgment of some of the
delegates (men who in their younger
days had been politicians) that in the
present condition of public affairs
such a redistilbution was not to be
expected and desiring to confine their
deliberations to practical and present
issues tbey did not act as thoy might
have done for five additional members
for Southern Yale and Kootenay, giving the impiession tbat I gathered
from listening as chairman to the discussion that ocenrred. Yours faithfully, G. O. BUCHANAN.

AROUND BONNER'S FERRY.
Talk of a Smelter and Sampler���Work
on the Mines.
William Van Gasken, of Bonner's
Ferry, Idaho, is in the city on a business visit. He is bere selling sawlogs
and disposed of half a million feot to a
local concerns, ne is also looking up
a market for tame and wild hay. ne
says that there bas been an appropriation, made by the U. S. government
several years since, of 8250,000 for a
smelter and sampler at Bonner's
Ferry. It has been laying dormant
and now the people of that seotion
are talking seriously of building the
smelter and sampler and securing the
bonus. Ore could be secured on both
sides of the line. He reports that tbe
Continental mine, whioh is just south
of the boundary line and 25 miles
west of Port Hill, has been shipping
considerable ore over a wagon road
which wns constructed during the
latter portion of tlie fall and the commencement of the winter. They purpose constructing a T-rall tramway
from boundary creek to tho mine. A
concentrator are being erected at the
mine. The company has ample capital
and intends to push matters. Just
east of Port Hill Zaoh Montgomery
and associates of the Copper King
Mining Co., ere doing considerable
development work on seven olaims.
The Hosier Boy Gold Mining Co.,
enother concern whose properties are
tributary to Bonner's Ferry, has a
group of seven claims whioh has
been extensively developed. Within
a short time a ten stamp mill is to be
eroded out of which the company expect to make sufficient for development work and for the enlarging of
the 10-stamp mill to one of 25 stamps.
The country is filling up with settlers
from the south and middle west, new
sawmills are coming in and the section is enjoying more prosperity than
it has for several years.

AGAINST IMPERIALISM.
French Canadian Press Think Laurier
Has Gone Too Far.
Montreal, March 12.���Tho French
papers aro ondeavoring to arouse public sentiment against what they call
Sir Wilfrid Lnurier's imperialism.
Both the Pionnier and Debuts urge
the public to speak out their minds
upon tho proposals which are formulating themselves, both in Groat
Britain and the colonies, to be consid-
eied by tbo Imperial-Colonial confer-
enee iu Loudon next summer.
Debate declares that Sir Wilfrid lias
soparated himself from his compatriots by his yielding to the
"sinstor propositions" of Chumber-
laiu, and that his projected voyage to
London alarms the Frenoh-Cnnndlan
people. They fear thnt "he will compromise the future of our raco."
Both papers demand tbat publio
meetings shall De held throughout
CJueboe before tho premior leaves, in
order that ho may know tho real senti-
monts uf Frenoh Canada upon
imperialism.
Even La Presso, conservative as it
is in its views, in contrast with the
Sunday papors, asserts that military
Imperialism will never gain a foothold in Canada. It is however, willing that tho Dominion should maintain one or two training ships to open
a new career to Canadians. But that
is as far as it wili go.

WILL NOT VISIT IRELAND.
Reasons   Assigned   For King's Abandoning Irish Trip.
London, March 13,���The announcement tbat King Edward bad cancelled
his visit to Ireland was published t'.o
late to elicit opinions tncreon in
Dublin. There is no doubt, however,
that this action will cause keen disappointment although the inynl
decision has been anticipated by semiofficial announcement.
There are several reasons for this
decision. The first is that the coronation festivities whieh involve fatiguing obligations and needful rest
would postpone the visit until
Autumn, when the weather is bad;
secondly, the fears that the present
temper oi tbe Irish Nationalists and
the United Irish League agitation
may lead to some offensive demonstrations; thirdly, it is said that several of the leaders of Ca'holic opinion
in Ireland have warned the government that it would be inexpedient tor
the King to visit Ireland so soon after
h's aeeession to the throne and his
declaration against [toman doctrines
in    England.       The    announcement
