Eleventh  Year
A PROBLEM
SOLVED
very shortly as to Republic ore nnd to
tbe satisfaction of the mine owners,
I believe, too."
In the   Boundary   Success
Is Crowning Miners'
Efforts.
The Cheapest   Mining and
Smelting  ln   the
World.
Oaptain John R. Gilford, manager
of tne mining department of tho Hall
Mining and Smelting Co., limited,
has retained from an extended trip
through the Boundary country and to
the section in the vicinity pf Republic. In speaking about the trip
yesterday Captain Gilford said : "In
the Boundary they are about ready to
smelt a larger quantity of ore than
over. The plants are being added to
and at the Granby they are now reducing 1,100 tons a dny and mill soon be
in a position to reduce 1,500 tons in
the same preiod. There is no plaoe
in the world that I know ol where
they have got smelting and mining
down to a lower point than they have
in the boundary. The problem there
was how to reduce large bodies of low
grade ore at. a profit and tLey have
successfully solved it by adopting the
most scientific methods and all possible labor saving devices, The ore is
handled by hand as little as possible.
The plant at tbe Granby is as fine a
une as I have ever seen. To be sure
nature has given them a self fluxing
ore. The smelter at Greenwood is up-
to-date in a number of particulars.
Good results are being secured from
both these plants. Besides tbis they
have a converter -vhic'ii is I lining o.ii,
blistered copper. B8 per eeo,. fine.
"The towns in the Boundary are on
the mend and lately there has been a
distinct iuipiovement in Grand Forks
and Greenwood. The entire Boundary,
in my opinion, has a great future and
there cannot fail to be important
towns there. Thore are a number of
owners of mining properties there
who have been watching the outcome
of the wonderful enterprise of the
Granby Consolidated and the British
Columbia Copper Company who will
now go ahead with tbeir plants, as
these companies have paved tbe way
and shown that the ore can be successfully and profitably reduced. The
Montreal and Boston Copper Co. presents an instance of this. Tbis oompany has purchased the smelter owned
by the Standard Pyritie company,
near Boundary Falls, and will have it
in operation in about three weeks.
The Montreal and Boston company
will go ahead and smelt its own ores.
They have the Sunset mine well
developed and there should not be the
slightest trouble in outputting the 450
tons of ore required each day to keep
their plant in opeiation.
"The Snowsboe Mines, limited, is
talking of electing a smelter to treat
the ores from their property in the
Phoonix camp. At present tbe company is shipping to the Greenwood
plant, but there is no doubt that ere
long it will erect a smelter of its own.
"The Dominion Oopper Co., which
owns the Snowahoe, Stemwindor and
other piopertles In the Phoenix camp,
will, I believe, ^ultimately erect a
plant of its own. The properties of
this compauy have beeu extensively
developed and could, I believe, keep
a smelting plant in operation.
"A good many mining enterprises
have been waiting for putting In
machinery for the completion of the
plant of the Casoade Powor and Light
Oo, It ia now certain tbat this oompany will be ready to furnish power
by June 1st, and it is the intention
immediately this materializes to equip
soveral properties with electrical
plants. There is no question now but
that all of the power the company can
generate will be  taken,
"The Hot Air and the V. V. and E.
railways will have reached Republic
in about six weeks, and there is
pienty of oro at that town ready for
transportation. The ore is highly
silicimiH, and the question of the best
method of treating it has not yet been
determined. The region is in the same
condition aB tha Boundary oro >�� lew
years sinoe. Then it was not known
whether or not the Boundary ore could
be profitably treated, but that question bas been favorably determined
new.     The  question  will he solved(
HUNTER FOE CHIEF JUSTICE.
Official Statement of Government's In
tention to Appoint the Barrister.
Ottawa, Feb, 28.���It was officially
s*.ated today that Mr. Gordon Hunter,
K. C, Victoria, will bu the nev Chief
Justice of British Columbia. His ap'
pointment bus not yet been made, but
it is considered that there is no question that it will be mado within a few
days. The official statement is that
this decision has now been reached.
It has been suggested, in view of
the claims of Vancouver, in Connection with the appointment, that Mr.
Hunter be requested to reside in tbe
Terminal City. Whether tho government will take official action regarding this is not denfiitely stated. As
the largest city in the province, it is
agreed that Vancouver should be the
permanent residence of one of the
Supreme court judges, if not the ohief
justice. Tha contention that the chief
justice should reside at the capital
cannot bear much weight, seeing lhat
the last chief justice lived in New
Westminster. Moreover, it is stated
here that Air. H unter has expressed
himself as quite willing to live in
Vancouver, in view of tho appointment being made.

IS TBE WAR EAGLE SOLD?
A Rossland Rumor Says The Snow-
shoe Has Acquired It.
Rossland, Feb. 28.���There is a well
authenticated letter In the citv stating positively that the War Ealge
mine has been sold to the Snowsboe
people. The correspondent is in a
position to know that which he is
talking about but being necessarily,
for the purposes of publication anonymous, despite tbe fact that he is
willing to invest on the strength cf
his knowledge, the testimony oan by
no means be accepted i.t present as
conclusive without corroboration. It
is known that Messrs. Goodorham and
Blackstuck huve both visited London
for the purpose of plucing tlieir property advantageously if It oould be
done and that the latter gontleman is
still in Kngland. It is further stated
that A. J. McMillan, who is also in
England, haB been the medium
tbtough wnich the alleged sale has
been made. Both Manager Kirby and
A. J. McMillan's brother profess
ignorance of the transaction.
SETTLERS FOR SKEENA.
Contract Lot For Pacific Cable Station
on Vancouver Island.
Victoria, Feb.2S.���Another schooner
has returned to the west coast harbor
in distress. This time it is the sealer
Mary Taylor of this port, which has
been sealing off the Cahfornian coast.
She lost her head stays and side
lights.
The provincial government has made
arrangements to place 100 settlers in
the Buckley valley nenr the Skeena
river. They will be given 100 aores
of land oach and will be allowed to
pre-empt another 220 acres at $1 an
acre. This is one of the richest sections of tbo provinoe and a railway
is projected through it.
Joshua Holland, of this city has
been awarded tho contract for the
erection of the Pacific cable station on
tbe west coast of the island.
Lute this afternoon a bark passed
up tho straits with some of her rigging gone.
MANY MINERS KILLED.
Snow Slide Does Terrible Damage at
Liborty Bell
Telluride, Colo., Feb.28.���The moBt
terrible snow slide ever known in
Colorado caused the death of from 30
to 75 mun at the Liberty Bell mine on
Smuggler mountain today. Although
the soene of the disaster is scarcely
two miles from this place, information is difficult to obtain on account
of the precipitous character of the
roads and the vast amount of snow.
Nearly all the buildings near the
Liberty Bell mine wure enrriod down
by the slide. AH the books which
show the number and names of the
men employed arc lost, so that the
death list can hardly bo known for
many hcura; poBsibly not until the
rcsouers shall have removed the im-
menso quantity of snow, rocks and
logs from the canyon where the victims lie buried. It seems that the two
slides occurred practically in tho same
place, tho seoond burying thoso who
were trying to rescuo the rest.
Buffalo, Feb. 28.���Heavy rain arid
warm weather today changed insignificant streams throughout New York
and Pennylvania into raging torreuts
which overflowed their banks and
caused floods in the two states. Two
lives were lost in Scranton, Pa., and
three persons perished in the raging
waters near Wilkesbarre, Pa. Reports
trom various points at midnight indicate th^t tbe worst haB not yet been
experienced and that a further rise in
tbe water may be expected tomorrow.
In this city a large area of South
Buffalo is under from two to four feet
of water. Twenty-five blocks on
Seneca street are flooded to a depth
averaging five feet.

Halifax, Feb. 28.���James G, Harris,
manager of tho Nova Sootla nuisery,
was kllUd this evening while crossing
tbe car tracks at Bussed street. He
was struck by an electric oar and
badly cut.
J. F. Kenny, a prominent oittzen of

Kenny, died this morning, aged UO.
Montreal, Feb. 28.���The Star's London cable says: It is stated that important communications are passing
between the Imperial and Canadian
governments regarding the Alasitan
boundary. It is declared that the
Canadian ministers havo plainly told
Chamberlain that Canada has got to
about tbe end of her tether in giving
concessions to the United States.
The London correspondent of the
pro-Boer Manchester Guardian adds a
gloss of his own and says: Though
Canada had on many occasions not
received justice, Sir Wilfrid Laurier
thought it would be possible to preserve friendly relations with .the
United States but that it required the
exercise of patience. This is true, but
Canadians are beginning to see that
patience is required moro with the
British government, which, in its
soaring imperialism, is always obligingly ready to sacrifice colonial interests to an impoitant foreign power,
tnan with the United States. Canadians understand tho ways of Americans and can dnvo u baid bargain, as
well aB they ean, if left to themselves.
STOLE AN INFANT.
Ronit.ntic Servant Oirl Afraid bhe
Would be Separated From it.
Montroal, Feb. 28.���The directors of
the Dominion Iron and Steel company,
were to have mot today to take action
on tbe dividend on the company's preferred stock. Owing to the absonce of
Hon. George A. Cox tho meeting was
adourned till tomorrow.
Mrs. E. J. Wayland loit her two
children in hor homo on City Hall
avenue yosterdiy afternoon in charge
of her servant who had given her
name as Audley Earle. When she
returned, she found her eldest child
Bitting on the steps orying bitterly.
He imparted the information that the
girl had gone off witn some of Mis.
Wayland's clothes, a valise and the
baby. The police at onoe started an
energetic search and tonight found the
eirl and baby in a house on St. Paul
Btreet. The t.nly explanation the gn-1
would give is that she loved the baby
and feared she might be parted from
it. It turned out that her right name
is Ethel Young and that she Is passionately fond of novels, as indicated
by her assumed iiie.io.
The Canada Paper oompany's issue
of $275,000 of 7 per cent, cumulative
preferred stock was over-subscribed
four times. The allotment will bo
made next week.
SAVED TnE SITUATION.
Canada Aloue Made tho Pacific Cable
Scheme Possible.
Toronto, Feb. 28.���The Evening
Telegram's London cable says: Sir
Edward A. Bassom spoke yesterday
before the London Chamber of Commerce on telegraph line of the umpire,
concluding he said : "1 cannot bring
tbis lecture to a close without bearing
testimony to the great efforts made
by Canada to advance the cause which
1 have had the pleasure of interpreting
to you. But for tho tenacity of purpose shown by Cunada, and sacrifices
she has willingly made, there is little
doubt but that tbo Pacific cable
scheme would havo come to nothing."
WISH BONDS GUARANTEED.
Manitoba Legislature Propose to Aid
Canada Northern.
Winnipog, Feb. 28.���A bill respecting tho construction of certain lines
of railway and the guarantee of the
bonds of tbo Canadian Northern Railway company secured thereon, introduced in the legislature today, provides for guarantee bonds to the extent of ��s".Ono pur mile on branch lines
of the C.N.R. within tho province of
Manitoba. On some of these lines
the provinco had already agreed to
guarantee bonds Tho act provides
for    aid      to     certain      additional
lines. It is uncertain whether the
company really intends to build the
lines, or whether the legislation is
obtained to bo used as a weapon
against tbe promoters of other lines.
SENATORS   CENSURED.
LIVE ISSUES
DEALT WITH
Tillman Thought His Apology Sufficient And a Scene Followed.
Washington, Fob. 28.���Senators
McLaurin and Tillman, of South
Carolina, were severely oensured today
by the United States senate for the
sensational personal encounter between the two senators on the floor of
the senate last Saturday during tho
consideration of the Philippine tariff
bill. Tho adoption of the resolution
of censure probably closes the incident so far as Mr. McLaurin is con-
corned.
Immediately after the senate convened Mr. Burrows, chairman of the
committee on privileges and elections,
to which the McLaurin-Tillman controversy haa been referred, reported
the resolution of censure framed by a
majority of the committee. Accompanying the resolution was a report
setting out the conclusion of the
majoritj. Practically there was no
debate on the resolution and it was
adopted by a vote of 52 to 12.
During the roll cull when Mr. Tillman's name was called, he lidded a
new sensation to tho proceedings bv
rising and saying with ill concealed
emotion: "Among gentlemen an
apology for an offense committed
under boat of blood is usually considered sufficient." Mr. Tillman's words
induced Mr. Keen, of New Jersey, to
rise at the conclusion of tho roll and
said: "Having heard the senator from
South Carolina again insult the senate, I change my ��ote from aye to no."
At the request of Mr. BnrrowB, tho
statement of Mr. Tillmnn waB read by
the clerk. Instantly the South Carolina senator disclaimed any intention
of being offensive to the senate and
said if they were so considered he
wonld withdraw tbem.
The chairman, Mr. Frye, said that
by unanimous consent they might be
withdrawn but Mr. Dietrich
(Nebraska) objected. The incident
was closed without further comment.
Associated Boards of Trade
Pass Important Resolutions.
FIRED ON THE POSSE.
Rival Factions  Combine Against   the
Sheriff's Men.
Campton, Ky., Feb. 88.��� Sheriff
Stamper and posse had a pitched
battle at Vortex today with a gang
that had previously ongaged in a fight
in Mrs. Faulkner's yard at Harris'
distillery, in which Napier and his
followers and Faulkner and hia followers had shed blood. The sheriff
followed the trail of blood to the distillery where he found 14 mon of the
two factions dressing tho wounds of
Napier and Faulkner who bad dropped
their quarrel. The sheriff and posse
rushed at them with drawn weapons
and were fired on by the gang. The
fire was returned by the sheriff 'a posse
and six of the men were wounded.
Two of the sheriff's posse were slightly wounded. The men were caputred
and brought here and placed in jail.
Four of them, Buck Wooten, Jeff
Townsend, Clay Napier and John
Faulkner were left, as thoir wounds
were severe. Wooten and Townsend
are expeoted to die. There are indications of mob violence and a hundred
armed men are guarding tbe jail.
FILIPINOS STILL FIGHT.
Small Isolated Bodies of Troops Subjected to Attacks.
Manila, Feb 28.���The United States
Philippine commission has ordered

ViewsFxpressed on Fuel, Representation and Taxes on
Mines.
Kaslo, Feb. 28.���The Associated
Hoards of Trade cf Eastern llritish
Columbia concluded its labors today,
and will meet next year ut Fernie.
The proceedings closed with a banquet
tendered by the Kaslo board.
This morning, the hoard passed the
following resolutions: Urging the
Dominion government to make an immediate selection of the government
reserve of 50,000 acres of coal land
and lease them ��ith such safeguards
as will absolutely preclude now and
In the future, the possibility ot the
amalgamation with, or euatro] by the
Crow 's Nest Coal Co., or any allied
corporation, and that the maximum
pike to be charged f r cuke be $3.50
per ton f.o.b. und the maximum prioe
for 3-4-inch screend coal be $1.75 per
ton f.o.b. Tllis was an amendment
by the Roseland delegates, to the
original resolution offered by the
Greenwood board,which simply called
for the throwing open of these lands
under proper restrictions from the
government.
A resolution was pnssed asking that
tho Yule-Koctenay-Curiboo federal
distirct be divided at once on the line
of thc Columbia river nnd that an
election for a member of tho
Dominion ijatltauiciil oe i mined lately
held in the new district thereby
created west ol the Columbia river.
The following resolution was passed
in reference to the mineral tax:
That whereas there is now imposed
by the government of British Columbia tax of 3 per cent, on the gross
value of all ore aftei deducting tho
chargo paid for transpoitation and
smelting, uni whereas, the prosperity
and growth of the mining Industry of
this provincu largely depends upon
tho possibilities of profitably working
the low grade ore deposits of tho
country, and
Whereas the incidenen of the tax as
at present levied is considered to be
unjust, bearing unequally upon minus
having different conditions as to value
of ore and cost ot pi eduction, and
taxing all thc labor and supplies expended in ore production, and
Whereas, it is believed that a considerable portion of the revenue which
it may be deemed equitable to levy
upon the mining industry, could bo
derived (1) from the tax already
legally collectible npon crown granted
olaims, upon which less work than to
tho value of 8200 annually is done, if
such tux were systematically and
promptly collected, or in default
thereof, if the said crown granted
mineral claims wero to be sold by tho
government to the highest bidder,and
(2) by changing the conditions in regard to such crown granted claims,
so that work to the valuo of 8400
annually should be required, or failing that, a tax of 50 cents per aero bo
Imposed, and (II) by requiring that
instead of work to the value of 1100
being the annual assessment conditions ou nnn-crown gianted claims,
work to the value of 8*0 be accepted,
with an increase of the fee for recording assessment, work to 812.50 with
no increase in the number of assessments liefore the issuunce of crown
grants, and hy these means the development of the resources of the country
be stimulated,
lie It received that the government
be asked to look to the means herein
suggested fur a portion of the revenue
from the milling Industry, und to
reduce liy so much the amount to be
derived from the tax on mineral produced and to change ��� the incidence of
the tax by deducting from the taxable
value of the ore tho cost of mining,
exclusive of capital expenditure und
head otlice expenses, such deduction to
be subjeot to the jurisdiction of such
official as tlie government may
designate.

rather forced by   the   pressure oi   the
domineering monopoly and hence   tbe
Dominion authorities   should   not pay
the   sl ightest attention to it.
ON   CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE.
Tho conviction of_C. B. Bullock for
the murder of Leon Stainton at Edmonton, Alberta, is a verification of
tho old adage that murder will ont.
Tbo credit, however, of running down
the murderer is due largely to the
splendid dcteetivo work of Strgeant
j Iletheriugtnn. of the Northwest
Mounted Police. Tbe clncs which he
Had to work on were of tho most
vague kind. The body of a man was
found near Ponoka, Alberta, with a
bullet wound in tho skull. Many examined the body but none could identity il, and it was evident tbat the
murdered man was a stranger in that
section. Seigeant iletherington found
marks upon the clothing which led
him to infer that they had been purchased in Kalamazoo,Mich. Inquiiies
wers made thero and it was learned
that Staiuton was missing. Further
investigation lead to the disclosure
that .itiiintnn had left a place in
Wyoming witb Bullock, who was
later arrested near Great Falls under
an assumed name. With these materials at his command Sergeant
Iletherington wove tbo meshes of evidence so closely around the accused
and established so strong a case that
thc jury found Bullock guilty of murder and be has been sentenced to be
hanged on the 20th of MarcC. The
evidence was nearly all circumstantial, but as tlio learned judge before
I whom the case was tried said in
charging the jury: "The crown has
told you that a prisoner is rarely committed by   direct   evidence,     In   this
The fact that the C.P.R. was enabled to get a resolution through the
Assoeiated Boards cf Track' in favor of
a reduction in tbe price of coke and
coal by the Crow's Nest Pass Coal
company shows the power of that company when it lias any ulterior purpose
in view, and the necessity for curbing
nn influence whieh has   becume   over-1 "���'    ""'     ,   ,
        ,,._,. ,_ .,.. 'case   almost all of the evidence is cir-
shadowing and which is Hellish in the
extreme. That every town and almost
every interest in the province can be
browbeaten into carrying out its
wishes is evident by thu action ot the
Associated Boards of Trade. The
merchants, financiers and business
men who to a large extent made up
the personnel of the membership of
the Associated Hoards of Trade,though
they may not all acknowledge it, bow
to its intluence principally through
fear because they are more or less
dependent on it and think they cannot
afford to offend it.
Towns bave felt the weight of the
railway's displeasu'e. (irand Forks
refused to give the management of the
road as large a share of the townsite
as tbe greedy monopoly desired and
the result was the place was
sidetracked and an endeavor made to
build up a rival city, which was only
partially sncce-sful. owing to the
enterprise and energy of the citizons
and not to any lack of a desire to
injure Grand Forks on the part of tbe
railway management. Fort Steele
Buffered in the same way because it
refused to be "held up" by the C.P.R.
and the result was that the town is
now suffering for daring tu oppoBe tbe
imperious wishes of the C. P. R. Tbe
management evidently does not care
what private interests are trampled on
and injuied when it wishes to accomplish its purposes, lt is no wonder, therefore, that the rCDresentatives
of some of the towns, who knew what
the weight of the displeasure of tne
C. P. i!. means, ratbqi than subject
themselves to it, did ns they were
asked to by the represeiittivcs and
organs of tbe railway.
No resolution was adopted.howevor,
to the effect that the price paid to the
C. P. R. for the haulage of coke and
ooal Irom the Crow's Nest Pass to
Nelson, Grand Forks and Greenwood
should be less than it is. Every delegate present knows that it costs moie
than tbe coal does in the Crow's Nest
Pass to transport it from there to Nelson, Grand Forks and Greenwood and
yet no resolution setting forth this
fact and asking that a redaction] be
made to a certain fixed figure was
adopted. It is known that the prices
of both coko and coal aro higher at
the coast collieries and coke ovens
than Is the Crow's Nest Pass and yet
not a voice was raised in favor of a
resolution asuing that the coast companies loner tlieir prices on these
products. Yet there would be just as
much justice in the one case ns in tbe
other.
As the expression of tho Associated
Board of Trade wns forced by what we
believe to be a campaign of misrepresentation which listed for nearly
two months,during which every newspaper in the province that could be
secured to publish the literature
furnished by the C.P.U.   bureau   was
cumstnntial, bnt, such eivdence, if of
the right kind, may be even stronger
tban iirect evidence." The accused
protested that he was innocent when
asked tn stand up in order that sentence might be pronounced, Few
could, however, read tbe eivdence and
not believe him guilty. In tllis case
no one saw the murder committed.
After Bullock and Stainlon left Calgary no one saw them togethei and
yet It is morally certain that Bullock
murdered his friend and companion
and simply for tbe purpose of robbing
him of a few dollars and bis personal
effects, some of whieh he had with
him when arrested.

Wolves and coyotes annually destroy more deer than hunters in the
Kootenays as there is no closed season
for them. Game is a valuable asset
of the province and Bhonld be protected, if possible, from becoming tbe
prey of the wolves and coyotes. A
well known mining man informs The
Miner tbat whilo comnig lrom a mining property on the east slope of the
Ymir range he iouod oh the trail
within a mile, at a roint near Kootenay lake the half, eaten carcasses of
four deer. The deer had been killed
by wolves and their bodies partially
devoured. This incident shows that
the number of deer killed by wolveB
inns? be large each year, and that
the destruction go��3 on during all the
four seasons. Were it not for this
form of destruction the number of
deer would be much larger. It is said
that the wolves are equally destructive to caribou and elk. If the
wolves could be exterminated, and the
game laws rigidly enlorced game of
all kinds would be more plentiful.
Owing to tho mountainous nature of
tbo country and the difficulties experienced in getting into the remote
haunts of wild animals there should
be always an abundance ot game,provided the animals that prey on they
are got rid of. One method of accomplishing this would be to increase the
bounty paid by the government. Such
h course would greatly'stimulate their
destruction and in a yoar or two they
would become scarco. This is a matter of importance in view of the proposed tourist assocition which is to be
formed here and the one that is
already organized in Victoria.

The Marion has ma'"e another shipment of 40 tons of ore,and another 100
ton shipment is being brought down
from the mine, says the Sandon Mining Review.
A new crosBut tunnel was commenced last week on the Silversmitn
ground to tap the Slocan Star vein. It
is calculated that the ledge will be
intersected at 500 feet.
The celebrated suit between Coplen
and Callaghan over tho Cube Lode and
Cody and Joker is again ln evidence
at Victoria. In all this has involved
18 actions. So far Cal'aghan has had
the best of it in the contention that be
owned the ground claimed by Coplen
for tho Cube Lode, in the Cody and
Joker claims. The courts have all
along decided the Cube Lode is invalid in that it overlaps the others
registered previous to it.
The Sandon Paystreak says that the
owners of the Donnelly group, who
bave been working so long on that
property have at last opened a showing which justifies their faith in the
property. In the old Donnelly tunnel
thoy have opened np a seven-inch
streak of high grade galena which is
staying wilh them. The Donnelly
claims belong to tbe Urban Mining
company, a corporation of local
people, who have put considerable
money into the ground, but until
recently have never hnd a return in
sight. The Btock. which has been a
drug for many months, may now become valuable.
C. Hungerford Pollen, manager ot
the Estrella mine, is now at the ooast
on business connected with the mine,
says the Fort Steele Prospector. The
Estella is a big mine. Over 2,000
feet of tunnels, shafts and adits have
beon run. They have a large ore body
on which drifts have been run for a
long distance that will run well in
silver, lead and copper. The company
operating this property is of the right
sort, they arc blocking out ore and
developing the mine without making
any effort to ship. There is sufficient
ore blocked out to warrant tho construction of a large concentrator to
treat the product of tho mine. The
ore is an excellent concentrating ore,
it will concentrate three into one
making a most desirable product. It
has lung been the impression that the
Estella was a great mine, and under
the management of C. Hungerford
Pollen, F.Q.S., will turn out one of
the best properties in the distriot.
Twelve men are at work on a contract, lunning five hundred feet of

TO PROTECT GAME.
Association Formed to Preserve the
Fish and Oume.
An association for the protection of
fish and game was organized at a
meeting held yesterday afternoon in
the office of Macdonald and Johnson.
Those present were: 11. E. Croasdaile, who was chosen chairman; C.
I). Curtis, who was iequested to act a.
secretary; Rev. H. D. Uraham, Dr.
Hawkey, E. K. Woakes, A, E. Esk-
rigee, V. Hunt, H. A. Stewart, John
Patterson, A. M. Johnson, C B. Winter, and W. Beaven.
Some discussion took place as to
what oould be done toward the protection of the fish in the lakes and
streams of the interior and W.H. Bullock-Webster, of the provincial police,
who was present, made Home valuable
suggestions, being thoroughly conversant with thc regulations as they now
stand. He pointed out that under the
present regulation, which are those of
the Dominion government, it was not
contrary to law to catch trout at any
season of tho year, the provincial
game act not having provided for
these fish After discussion it was resolved to instruct the secretary to
write to VV. A. (Ialliher, member for
the riding, to ask him to use his influence to nave tho order-in-council of
March 3rd, 1894, making fishing regulations for the province of British
Columbia, amended so as to provide a
close season fur charr, rainbow trout
and land locked Salmon.
A resolution waa also passed asking
the attorney-general to introduce a
bill to amend the provincial game aot
changing the act so as to bring these
fish named under the act and to add a
clause to prohibit the sale or exposure
for salo of trout at any time, and to
provide a penalty for the offences, lt
was decided that the name of the
association should be tlio Kootenay
Fish and Game Protective Association,
and the intention was expressed to
prucure the organization of similar
associations at other points in the
district. H. E. Croasdaile was chosen
president, and C. D. Curtis, secretary,
but the election of other officers was
left over to a subsequent meeting.
A committee of Johnston, Curtis,
Stewart, and Giaham was appointed
to draw up constitution and bylaws
for the association. This committee
is to prepare its report which will be
submitted to a meeting to be called
by the chair.

A well equipped, well managed, up-

thougthout the mountains. There
is however, ft tract of good tillable
land in the beautiful Fire Valley,
which extends to the Arrow
Lakes, and is about 78 miles from
Nelson. The above company have been
unusually fortnnnte in seuuring 720
acres of this lnnd and for the past 14
months they have been quietly working along clearing tbe land with a
view to going into the dairy business
on an extensive scale. Owing to the
absence of heavy timber the cost of
clearing is unusually small,averaging
about $13 per acre. They already havo
over 100 acres cleared which will all
be under cultivation tnis year and
from which they expect to take a large
quantity of hay.etc. Should the company see fit to market this it would
pay a handsome dividend but such is
not their intention, as they require it
for their own s'ock which they will
place on tho ranch earl) in the fall
when they will begin Belling milk
and othei products and from which
they expect to receive larger   returns.
As will be seen from the above only

ANY ONE CAN
Prove tho Value of Scientific Food.
A good straightforward test of food
is worth much to humanity. Tho following is interesting:
Mr. T. K. Duiboraw of Grenfleld,
O., say: "After ;i months' sickness
with grip I found J had lost 42
pounds, with ilttle appetite and
almost no digestion. Wife finally put
mo on (Jrape-Nuts and I actually
lived on this food, taking it three
times a day, and a cup of Postum
Coffee at each meal for about four
weeks,
When 1 began 1 was so nervous and
weak and my srengtli wns exhausted
even by dressing,and, of course, 1 was
unable to do tlie work loaded upon
my desk, bnt I hammered away without auy tonics or medicines only toy
diet of Grape-Nuts and I'ostum threo
times a Hay.    I found at the end of 23
days my nervousness gone, strength
greatly increased end that I had gained 16 pounds,
: Finally, after getting hack to good
health again I, of course, took on
different   kinds   of   food,   and,   as  a
change, began using for breaa
fast. After a while some peculiar
spells began to appear in the morning
with deathly sickness and nervous
lassitude. I took treatment for
biliousness but that did not avail.
About   a   month ago I   gave up the
  for breakfast   and took on Grnpe-
Nnt.'i again. These morning attacks
left me ontiiely in a day or two and
I fuel that I have had sulllcient evidence of the scieiiliflc value of Otape-
Nnts as a vitalizing perfect food, that
does not require the heavy work of the
stomach occasioned hy the use of
starch foods wo use so much
nowaday."

John P. Forestell, formerly proprietor of the Deimonico restaurant, writes
from Silverton to The Miner, saying
that he has some debts in Nelson as a
result of the lack of profit while in
the Deimonico, which he is paying off
as fast as he oan. Since ho has been
at work he has paid debts amounting
to $07.85 and he is confident that he
will be able in time to pay all that he
owes here. It is his determination to
work hard and to live economically
until the last creditor is satisfied.
The name of Dr. Hall was omitted
from the list of thoso present at the
meeting of the School board on Friday
night. The trustees state that the
assignment of the teachers was not
discussed at the meeting. The board
is adopting the plan of having eacb
teacher report on the number of pupils
absent during the month and the
reason ior such absence. In easo the
buard come to the conclusion that
this irregularity of attendance can be
prevented they may take such steps to
do so as the appointment of a truancy
officer.

Yesterday morning about 8 o'clock
a team of horses belonging to II. T.
Steeper and attached to a delivery
wagon in which were a number of
trunks, took iright aud made a wild
dash from the corner of Mines Road
and Kootenay streets, where thoy were
standing, along the former street
to Stanley down which thoy turned
and continued their career to Baker
Btreet where they tried to turn .
Their momentum was too great to
allow this so instead they headed
straight for Walker's store. A small
boy was standing on the sidewalk
directly in line, but fortunately the
shout of a bystander aroused him to a
sense of his danger. Ho rushed first
into the doorway of Ferland's store
and then as the team reached the sidewalk made another run for down tho
street. The team stumbled and fell on
the sidewalk, sliding till their feet
went through the transom that gives
light to the cellar. The wagon swung
around but fortunately did not roaoh
the store. As the horses struggled
to their feet aod started to run again
they were caught by S. Y. Rrookman
who happened to bu passing.
MEETING HAS BEEN CALLED.
On Tuesday Night Practical Work to
Begin by Tourist Assoointion.
A meeting ot thoso interested in the
formation of a Tourists' association in
Nelson iB to be held next Tuesday
evening. The place of meeting will
lie announced in The Miner on Tuesday morning. Since tho matter was
first spoken of there has boon considerable discussion of its merits and the
vast majority of cornmonts on it have
been favo able. One instance noted
this week was that by a man who had
described thu advantages of tho place
to somo friends in England, wbo had
thereupon decided to include it in
their list of places to visit last summer. In Now York, where they landed,
they asked for a ticket to Nolson,
British I'lurabin, but tho ticket agent
had never heard of such a place and
tried to convince them that it was a
town In Florida they meant, and it
was only after considerable Investigation that its whereabouts wero ascertained. Another iustimoe was of
several visitors from Grand Forks who
were saying that if it was only possible to runt summer cottages along the
lake near Nelson that many of those
living in the interior snch as those at
their own town and Sandon, Rossland
and other places would  be  delighted]
to oome and spend a month oi two. If
the Tourist Association is formed and
a number of these three and four
roomed cottages erected, there is no
doubt but that it will bo an easy
matter to keep tbem occupied all
su mnicr
Another matter that can be handlen
by the association is the renting of
steam launches and houseboats.
Several persons have expressed tlieir
willingness to provide some of these
which will be rented at most moderate rentals. The petitioning of the
railway to provide railway cars more
in keeping with the steamers and tho
town itself will also be a part of the
programme as with these the trip lo
Bonnington Falls and other points of
interest nearby would be a much more
pleasureable affair than at preseut.
One of the suggestions thnt have
beeu made by a Kelson business man
wbo saw- the practical working of a
similar association abroad is that the
picture postal cards to be got up be as
large as will be permitted by the pott-
office authorities. One Half the space
both back and front can then bo left
for writing and the other half devoted
to a picture o* Nelson or surrounding
scenery, with underneath a few lines
giivng a short list of the attractions
to be found here, and stating that for
rent of cottages, or other information
to address tho Tourist association.
These cards could not only be for sale
at the stores for private correspondence, but as many merchants as possible would be persuaded to use them,
The booklets which would be got up
could be placed in tbe reading rooms
of the China steamers and also on the
Atlantic liners running to New York
and points north to Quebec. This all
means considerable work, but if tbe
matter is taken up by the proper
parties there is no doubt but that the
result will be an influx of visitors
such as Nelson has never witnessed in
the past and it will be the means of
advertising the city and district
everywhere.

AT THE THEATRE.
The McKanlass Alabama Warblers
are booked for the Nelson Opera house
on the evening of March 10th, Monday week. The eastern press speak
very highly of the organisation, among
them tha Toronto World, which says
"MoKanlass with the Alaba-jia Warblers is without doubt the finest colored organization traveling, a better
show or finer singing has nevor been
heard in Toronto."
On Tuesday and Wednesday, March
11th and 12th, Otto Fiechtl's Comic
Players will fill a two night engagement at the Nelson Opera house, giving high class farce comedy, vaudeville and comic burlettas. This is
strictly a specialty show introducing
singing, dancing and acrobatic features, quartette and sextette singing.
Tho Georgia Harper company also
wired for the same dates but as the
dates were filled thoy will probably
arpear later.
Managei Annable bas secured the
Frederick Wardo company for four
nights in April. A great many requests have come from Rossland to
bave half the time tilled in thoro, and
arrangements are now being made to
carry out this request. As Mr.
Warde's company consists of 21 persons, some of whom draw tho highest
nay of any on tho road, the actual
expenses of the company in the Kootenays will amount to over $,')00 per
day. The piices of seats will run from
81 to $1.50. Different plays will be
put on here aud iu Rossland so that
any wishing to see all the plays can
do so by attending all tbo nights o(
the engagement. His repertoire consists of Horatius, The Montebank,
King Lear, Virginius, and Juiius
Caesar. Thoso who have a preference
for any ot these plays may drop a post
uard to Manager Annable up to April
10th, and tho plays will bo put on for
which most requests have been made.

HAIR NATURALLY ABUNDANT.
When it Is Free of Dandruff, It Grows
Luxuriantly.
Hair preparations and dandruff
cures, as a rule, are sticky or irritating affairs, that do no earthy good.
Hair, when not diseased grows
naturally luxuriantly. DandrntT is the
cause of nine-tenths of all hair
trouble, and dandruff is caosed by a
germ. The only way to cure uan-
ilrulV is to kill the germ; and, to lor,
the only hair preparation that will
positively destroy the giem is New-
tiro's Herpicide���absolutely harmless,
free from grease, sediment,dye matter
nr dangerous drugs. It alluys itching
instantly; makes hair glossy and Hnft
as silk. "Destroy the cnu.se, you
remove the effect, "���dandruff.
