Eleventh  Year
Prospect of Large Immigration to Canadian Northwest.
Manltobans Petition for Compensation to Liquor
unanimously passed the following resolution : "That this board has watched with intense   inteiest   the   conduct
!of the Boer war, forced upon the empire by the insulting ultimatum of
Kruger, and .villi remembrance of the
treatment     of      tbe       Johannesburg
j refugees and tbe vandalism of the
Boer inavders in Natal, expresses its
admiration of the patience, endurance
and unparalleled clemency of our
troops In the enemy's country, and
the kind treatment of prisoners everywhere, and deprecates the malevolent
feeling sbown by a jealous continental
European press, from which we had
expeoted, if not a remembrance of
past services, at least a truthful and
just criticism.
Winnipeg, Jan. 28.���J. Obed. Smith
immigration commissioner, returned
yesterday from a trip to the Soo line.
He went out in connection with tho
arrangements for the reception of
large numbers of immigrants from the
United States. Immigration acuom-
���noilution will be required at a num.
ber of points. Two places already
selected, at which immigrants will be
accommodated are Hal hi ito and
Milcsitoue. The movement, Mr, Smith
says, has already commenced, but it
would be advisable that settlers
should not be encouraged to come too
earlv in the year.
When questioned as to tbe probable
number el pec ted from the United
States this year, he said he could not
yet form an estimate further than it
would be quite safe to SBy that there
would be at least twice as many as
caine in last year over the Soo road.
Tne numoer ot Americans who came
in via that route last year, was 18,000
and therefore Mr. Smith's estimate
is 36,000, The land along the Sao
line, which Bold for $3 per acre a
year ago is now on the price llBt of
the railway companies ana others at
horn $4 to $7 por acre, and the demand is very great.
The writ for the Portage la Prairie
by-election for the Manitoba legislature was Issued today. Nominations

A pptition was presented to the
legislature today by Thos. Taylor, M.
P. P., for Centre Winnipeg, calling
upon the legislature to grant reasonable compensation to liquor dealers
and property owners, ln event of the
Manitoba Liquor Act being enforced.
The petition was one of the largest
ever presented to the legislature, having nearly s,000 signatures attached.
Montreal  Contest  Narrowed Down to
Smith and Cochrane.
Montreal, Jan. 8.���The mayoralty
tangle was all smoothed out today.
This morning objeciiou was filed to
tne mandamus, when to everybody's
surprise, it was discovered that Judge
Langelier repudiated the judgment
upo.i which tne write of mandamus
had been issued. The explanation
given was that tbe issue of the summons was due to a clerical error. All
the juoge would do yesterday was to
order that the opposition she old be
giver, nine days to prepare arguments.
That will bring argument in ou Sat-
uiday the day of the election, and
eonsuquently too late to be of any
avail. Therefore Wilson Smith and
Cochrane are left alone in the field
with the chance in favor of Uouhrane's
election by a largo majority. The
Prelontaine people it is said will ask
for an injunction postponing the

War Office Pays Three Per Cent, on
all Disbursements.
Toronto, Jan. 28.���The Evening
Telegram's London cable says: "John
E. Barlow,Liberal member for Frome,
in the House of Commons today asked
whether those colonies whinh have
expended money at the request and on
recount of the war olliee have charged
a commission and if so, at what rate
per cent, it was the iutention of the
government to pay such commission.
Sir John Broderick replied that the
usual commission nf three pur cent.
on local expenditure in connection
with the raising and equipping con
tingents furnished for South Africa
would be allowed the colonies by the
Imperial government.
London. Jan. 28. ���There haB been
no dispute between tne colonies
and the War ofiico in regard
to the payment of colonial
troops. Canada, Australia and New
Zealand expended large amounts on
bebalf of the War oflice and in making up the bills, some of tlie businesslike Australian premiers added three
per cent, commission. The War oflice
referred the matter to tbe Colonial
office. The question wus raised by W.
ta. K. Redmond (Irish Nationalist) in
the House of Commons today and the
war secretary, M. Broderick replied
that such a commission was customary
for local expenditures in behalf of the
Imperial government and that it
would be allowed in the case of the
Representative Committee Will Build
One by Dollar Subscriptions.
Rossland, Jan.28.���At a numerously
attended publio meeting held heie
last night it was unanimously resolved to open a subscription list for a
memorial for the late Rev. O, Irwin.
A committee of 50, fully representing
every olass of the communitty was
formed and lists will be sent to every
portion of tbe province. Subscriptions
have been limited to $1.00 and it is
hoped tbat the call will be largely
enough responded to to enable the
committee to erect a suitable memorial to the memory of the man who
devoted his time and means to the
relief of distress and frequently denied
himself the common necessaries of
life that he might give to these
need. The officers of tbe committee
are J. S. Clute, mayor of Rossland,
chairman; J. S. C. Fraser of the Bank

Balfour,   government
Honse of Commons to-
overtures of peace had
been received from any authorized
sonrce to speak in behalf of the Boers
but tbat a communication was, however, received late on Saturday last,
from the Dutch government which
was now under consideration, caused
a sensation in the lobbies of parliament. Lord Rosebery is generally
credited with having brought about
this movement on tne part of the
Dutch government. Tt is recalled that
Dr. Kuyper, the Dutch premier, in an
interview published about Chistrmas
time, was represented to have urged
the impossibility of Holland's intervening in Soutb Africa, unless she
had reason to think that both parties
wished it. Consequently it is regarded
as certain that the present move was
inspired by the Boer delegates. The
Petit Bleu of Brussels, tbe organ of
the Krogeritcs,flatly denied last night
that the Boer delegates had charged
any one to make a peace proposition
and professed to be in entire ignorance of the Dutch communication.
The Hugue correspondent of the
Daily Mail, claims to have ascertained
that Dr. Leyds inspired the Dutch
Foreign Secretary, who was further
advised by Professor Asser, the international   jurist,   ai��d   adds  that Dr.
Leyds tho European representative of
the Transvaal is apparently attempting to draw Mr. Chamberlain, tbe
British Colonial Secretary, to disclose
the terms conditional upon the waiving of independence.
The Daily News this morning,
claims credit far the initiation of tbe
peace movement. This paper says
that after Lord Rosebery's speech at
Chesterfield, they sent Dr. Bischop,
wbo was recently counsel for the
Dutch government before the compensation commission, and who is neither
a Briton nor a Boer, ou amission to
the continent to invite the Boer delegates to a consideration of the base of
negotiations which Lord Rosebery
suggested namely to grant the Boers
self government on the Canadian
model; no unnecessary pr-longation
ofthe military occupation ; complete
amnesty to colonial rebels and to
Boers, and grants of money to enable
the Boers to restart the farms. Dr.
liischop had.a long conference with
the Boer delegates on the continent,
with the exception of Mr. Eruger.
Bnt, he was assured tbat the ex-
president bad delegated his authority
and that it was not necessary to see
hiin. According tu the paper, Dr.
Bischop persuaded the delegates to
hold a.conference and discuss bis proposals. Then followed the visit of
Dr. Kuyper to London.
Montreal, Jan. 28.���The coroner's
jury, today held Arthur Lanrin, the
son of Cyrille Laurin, the well known
horseman, as criminally responsible
for the death of George W. Smith, the
negro trainer, employed by his father.
Young Lanrin und Smith got into a
quarrel, during wbich Laurin shot

President Autbonzed  to Begin on the
Cable to Manila.
Washington, Jau. 28.���At a meeting
today the PaoiHc cable bill was
amended so aB to provide that the government cable shall be of Amorican
make if this canjbe supplied according
to the highest standard and at a cost
not exceeding 10 per cent, above
foreign manufacture. Another amendment authorizes the Postmaster-General, tho Secretary of War, and the
Secretary of the Navy, to make arrangements for a connection with
Japan and China.
A proposed amendment authorizing
the president to purchase a private
cable if he considered it advantageous
to do so, was defeated. As finally
determind upen, the bill provides for
a government cable from the coast of
California to Hawaii and the Philippines islands via Midway and the
island of Guam, or by whatever route
the president may oonsider most practicable. The cost iB fixed at not to
exceed $10,000,000 of which $500,000 is
made immediately available. The
work of construction is entrusted to
the army and navy departments and
after the cable is laid its operation is
under the control of the Postmaster-
General, Secretary of War and Secretary of the Navy. Provision is made
for government messages and al6o for
private messages at a rate not exceed,

Panama, Jan. 28.���The government
steamers Boyaca, Chucuito and Gen

make an attempt to bioak the blockade of Agua Du Ice, where the revolutionary fleet was last seen, and to
communicate with Goneral Castro.

General Pinto, with 3,000 men, bas
marched from Cali to Bogota, to reinforce the government troopa at the
I against such an elusive enemy. The
condition of Capt. David S. Porter's
I marines who took part in the expedition into the interior of Samar, is
much worse than previously described.
They suffered    [earful hardships   and 	
were without food   for   several   davs.   _,.       _
The natives who accompanied the i KH��y Defeats Barnard In Vlc-
marmes claimed they were unable   to
distinguish tbe edible roots,which the
marines did not believe. Tbe anger
of the marines against the natives is
intense. None of the latter returned
witb the marines. Tbe marines Buffered so acutely from starvation that
they ate the raw flesh of two dogs.
When Capt. Porter and the first
thiee of his men staggered into camp
tbey were delirious and difficulty was
experienced concerning tbe whereabouts of their companions.
Williams, of the first infantry,
headed the relief expedition in tbe
face of a heavy rain stoim which
flooded the rivers. He succeeded in
reaching the remaining ton men who
wonld otherwise bave certainly
perished. He found them all delirious. Two of the men were discovered
iu the branches of trees,   barking like
gs. Some of the marines are so ill
that they are not likely to recover.
General Chaffee has endeavored to
obtain full details of the trip of the
marines, but Capt. Porter is not yet
able to lucidly explain matters.
Contractor's   Statement   on the
York Tunnel Accident.
New York, Jan. 28.- The authori
ties are energetically at work trying
to solve the mystery of the terrible explosion of dynamite whioh killed six
people and did so much damage in
the vicinity of the Grand Central
station. After many hours of thought
on the subject District Attorney
Jerome said tonight that he had come
to the conclusion that fire undoubtedly
caused the explosion. He bad ascertained that Epps, the powder man,
had a candle in the dynamite house
and wilh it had lit another longer
candle. In doing tbis, according to
the district attorney's opinion, afire
may have been started which ignited
the parafined paper in wbich tbe Cartridges were wrapped. Mr. Jeromo
has concluded from information re-
cieved from various sources that at the
time of the explosion there was between 125 and 200 pounds of explosives in the house, and in the morning
there had been probably (SOO pounds.
John B. McDonald, chief contractor
of tbe Rapid Trannit tunnel, gave out
a long siatment in the form of an interview concerning the explosion. He
said the blasting work nearest to
the magazine, which exploded, was
nearly two hundred feet away and
he does not attempt to explain tbe
cause of the accident. He is inclined
to doubt that a blast did it. He also
agreed that dynamite ought nut to explode in fire and said that fulminate
of silver detonators which are used as
caps in tbe cartridges were not stored
in the magazine, this containing
dynamite onlj.

The steamer Queen City which
reached port this afternoon reports
that the boat found by tbe Indians
about four miles from Abousett reservation on January 6th was undoubtedly that of the Condor, The beat
was white painted, 17 feet long,
clinker built ard had round hardwood
panels on her bow with brass letter
C" in centre. There was also tbe
naval broad arrow un her stem, and
below this were the figures "XVI" in
Roman numerals, below were the
letters SUB, or SUB with the cross
bar obliterated. Below this was
SH 98, evidently the contlaution for
Sheerness 189**, she having been built
at lhat yard iu that year. She had
two galvanized iron gripes, an iron
ring six inches in diameter,four pieces
of galvanized iron chain, two feet
long, marked with the letters M T
and S R. There was a small hole
about one foot long by six inches on
the port side of her bottom.
No further news was received of the
wreckage found marked Red Bock.
At Cape Beale a good watch and a
chronometer have been washed ashore.
Tbe chronometer ls ef English make
and the watch is number 55883. It
had a long square link, guld chain,
and on the back uf the watch ia a
Maltese Cross with a green stone.
These are believed to come from the
wreck which was broken up off Cape
Beale. Tbey were found near there
by the light house keeper at Cape
The Times of this city prints a
story of wreckage having been fonnd
from the Condor near Alberni. When
the geographical position of Alberni
at the head of the long canal running
from Barkley sound is considered this
seems improbable. No news bas been
received iu confirmation and it ia regarded as a take. The Queen City
spoke tbe Grant at Uclulet and no report was given of the finding of
wreuksge. The Grant was bound to
Ahousett to secuie the Condor's   boat.

A System of National Granaries

ously dismissed an amendment to the
address In reply to the speech from
the throne at the opening of parliament, proposed by U. Seton-Karr
(Con.), regarding the old-time question oi tho food supply in war time,
saying that tho subject was thread-
hare and that so long as the United
Kingdom retained the command of tbe
seas, it wbb quite sufficient to depend
upon thc ordinary operations of supply and demand. A system of national
granaries would necessitate an uatlay
of ��30,000,000. He added that war
risks ought not to entail a rise of
more than ten per cent in tbe price of
cereals. The government law no

in the presence of witnesses, provided
the distance is covered within an
hour, conld point to with priae next
summer when the rohins are' singing;,
the peaches are ripening and the men
iu ihiiinels are tugging at oars
in their shells to cover the same distance in shout four times the lime.
Hibernal sports like skating, ski
running, tohhoggoniug, snoreshoeing
or hookey make those who indulge in
them strong, rugged and healthy. Indulgence in these health-giving pastimes is one of the reasons why the
men of the northern zone, even from
the earliest days, have been able to
defeat those raised where the sunshine
is almost perpetual, in war aud iu
games where strength, skill and
endurance were required.^The^Roman
legionaries because of their trained
skill in war, better formation and
superior weapons at first were able to
whip the men of the north. When,
however, the Huns and Uoths learned
moro about the art of war by experience, sulrmitted to discipline and_met
the Romans on ectOBi footing in this
respeut they overran the Roman empire almost at will.
The citizens of Kossiand have decided to erect a memorial in honor of
the late Rev. Henry Irwin. The
subscriptions to tile memorial lund
have beeu limited to 81, the idea in
thus making the sum, which each
subscriher shall give, small is that if
Rev. Irwin had the directing of the
gathering of the fund for the memorial he would resent any deprivation
that would inflict the least hardship on individuals for his sake. The
keynote of bis admirable character
was unselfishness of whieh o was the
embodiment in every fibre of his
being. Homo men have a lust for
money, others for power, or for fame,
but he had a lust foi doing good and
in this only did he indulge hiinself,
His humanity was so broad that it
embraced all races and eieeds, as his
only desire was to know that his help
was needed and that there was suffering that he could ease, naked that he
could clothe, hungry that he could
feed, bereaved that he conld   condole.
At the same time he was entirely
unaffected nnd thete was no eel!
glorification in vvnat he did, and his
chief regret was that he could not
give more and do in.-re, even when he
deprived himself of almost the neoes-
saries of life for thc sake of othcrB.
The people understood him from the
highest to the lowest and their regard
went beyond liking him���they loved
him as a orother. His charity was,
like that of a Magdealeu, who resided several years ago in one of the
coast cities. One bitter cold night a
poor wretch homeless, penniless and
dying knocked at her door, saying
that every other door was closed to
him and craved permission to shelter
his cold, enfeebled body from the pitiless storm. lie was taken in and
warmed and cared for hut it was his
last night on eaith and towards the
grey hours of the morning he died
with no hand but that ot the woman to
soothe his last moments. The reporters of tlie papers on learning of the
death came and asked the woman who
he was, where he was born, what was
his name, and the Magdalen replied,
"I did not inquire into his geneology.
The man was cold, weak and dying
and I did not caie what his name
was. He needed help and I gave it to
him. I took him iu and cared for
him, and that's all there is to it."
Father Put never Inquired into tho
geneology of those lie assisted. He
will live in the memory of those
who knew him ns long as they live,
but it is proper tint those of the
future Bhall know that amid the
misty mountain tops ol the Kootenays
there once lived a man who followed
as close as he could the teachings of
his master so that some cf them, mayhap?, will be induced to follow bis
good example, anrl. therefore. the
idea cf the reople of Rossland in rearing some sort of a monument to his
memory is a commendable one.
To the lovers of hibernal sport, and
there are many of them, the condition
are now most favorable for indulging
in them around Nelson. The snow
covered steeps afford splendid opportunities for toboggonirig anil ski running, while the sides of the rrrountain
furnish thc best of chances for those
who like to take tramps on snow-
shoes. On the lake in front of the
city, however, the cold weather has
fashioned a sheet of ice four 01 five
inches in thickness, which extends for
several miles up and down the lake.
This affords a large field for the
skater. He is not cramped here by
the four walls of a rink, but can let
himself out and travel for miles if he
has thn breath and the muscle for it.
It is seldom even in Nelson lhat the
opportunity comes for such excellent
i-knting and full advantage is being
taken of it, ns the ice has many
patrons. An ordinary skater should
be able to travel at lhe rate of ten
miles an hour with comparative ease.
A spin on   the  skates from   Nelson to
It is anticipated that the sale of ths?
DaniBh West Indies by Denmark to
the United States will soon be eon
firmed. It is hoped thst the people of
the Republic will carefully consider
this real estate deal. They acquired
by force of arms and by purchas3 the
Philippine islands from the Spanish,
but the trouble is that the people on
the.islands will not remain bought.

the O. P. R. were $11,857,585,   and for
the eleven months of  1901  they   were

month of December, the  net  increase
is 8294,308 above 1900.
There is considerable courtliness
displayedjin the following item, or is
it respect for the prowress of two individuals of brawn and pugilistic skill
that prompted the editor of the Ymir
Mirror to write tbe item la such a
respectful manner: "A couple".of
gentlemen are knocking around town
with their arms in slings and the
fingers in poultices as a result of a
little altercation in which fists nnd
teeth were used." Thia reminds ns
of the story told of an Oregon sheriff
who wbb a regular Chesterfield on all
occasions This was displayed in a re
innrkable degree when it became his
painful duty to hang two murderers
who had killed a man and a boy
while attempting burglary. He had
provided two comfortable cushioned
chairs on Ihe scaffold for them so that
they might be at ease while he read
the decree of the court to them.
When he had finished he said in tbe
politest manner tu tbe two ruffians
"Gentlemen, you will now please
stand up and be hanged."
The Sandon Paystreak thus in a
nutshell summarizes the condition in
the Slocan: What's the matter witb
the Slocan? Ore has been found ln the
Galena tunnel. A big strike has beeu
made at, the Trade Dollar. The
������silversmith 1b looking immense. The
Washington has a fine ore shoot in
sight. The Ivanhoe is a great big
proposition in any country. The
Slocan Star ls a world-beater. The
Ruth has enormous reserves of ore
blocked out. Tl e Rambler-Cariboo is
a veritable bonanza. The Noble Five
ia worth J)ore money today than it
ever was before. The Monitor oould
not be bought for ten times the purchase price of one year ago. The Reco
is all right. The Queen Bess is showing up more ore every day. The
American Boy haa the heaviest lead
ore on the North American continent,
bar none. The Bosun, Dewitt, Enterprise and Arlington all have more ore
in sight than ever before. Besides
these big mines there are twenty or
thirty smaller pronerties in a position
to ship. If thc Slocan district could
get fair treatment from the railroad
and smelter monopolies for the year
1902 the output would reach at the
very least ealctilntions C0,000 tons of
ore. The mines are in better shape
than they ever were before. This
camp only requires a fair show and
it will beat the world.

tell yon how thaukful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, ohainnd
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1

my own skill as well an many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your

My wife commenced taking it about the flrst of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one boltle ber Asthma has disappeared

pleaders, professing the loftiest and
most disinterested motives, as a cloak
to hide the real motive, the perpetuation and strengthening of tlieir own
monopoly; and I wish to add the
following: That if the cloak were
lifted it would reveal tlio fact that in
Collin's gulch and the Similkameen
Valley there is sufilcient coal to supply tbe entiro province, including its
smelters, with coal and coke, for the
next thousand years to come, which,
with the advent ol theOoast-Kootensy
railway cau be delivered to any point
in the province, west of Moyie, as
cheaply, if not more cheaply than
any other coal in the province, thus
exploding the predicted ooal monopoly ; or the holdup.of our smelters,
and giving the Hon. Clifford Sifton
an opportunity to sleep nights. No
other part of the province has more
naturnl resources or finer climate,
nor has any part of the provinca
suffered more from lack of transportation than has the Similkameen
country. In the year 1807, the V. V.
and E. road was granted a subsidy
and charter to build through the
Similakmeen Valley. With this arsur-
ance of transportation, hundreds of
people invested in that portion of the
district, only to be dlsnppninterl from
year to year up to the pre��ent date.
Prom that date to thin, the present
monopoly and political tinkering have
held a cloak over one of the finest district in the Province of British
Columbia. Meanwhile many a loyal
llritish subject he's lost his last dollar
waiting on monopoly.
I sincerely hope, however, that the
entire press of the province will combine with you in (honing up these
clogs in the wheel of progress in their
true light.

Excellent System Provided For Automatic Handling of Ore.
T) C. Riblet has completed the Silver
Hill tramway and leaves tbis moning
foi Spokane where he is to submit a
tenner for another trawmay to be 18
miles in length. Wort Mine in lrom
the mine yesterday that evorything
waa working satisfactorily.
This tramway has been rather dim-
CUI, of construction and has occupied
tbe contractor since October 7th, wilh
the exception of about three ��eeks

capable of carrying
ore and the tramway of delivering 200
tons in a day of ten hours. The ore
iB loaded automatically into the
buckets at the top, tlie buckets are
self dumping and tho ere falls in an
ore chute and from this drops into
special ore wagons or sloiglis
wliich, when they reach the lake, are
again emptied from the bottom into
ore'ehntes from which it again falls by
gravitation into railway ore cars
placed on barges. These binges are
towed to the end of the railway at
Procter and hauled to Trail where it
ih Hgiun discharged from the bottom,
to that from the time the ore is loaded
into the oie cars in the mine till it
reaches the smelter yard there is no
handling of it. The output of the
mine is thus moved to its destination
ns economically as modern appliances
devise. The only saving that
uld be suggested is the construction
of a railway frjni the lake to the end
of the tramway.
'1 lie ib sign of tlic tramway is one
that lias worked very successfully.
It differs from most others in that the
weight of the bucket is borne on a
stationary track wire; the buckets
are, os well, attached to a travelling
wire whose only purpose is to guide
the motion and to bring up the
empties which is done by the downward tension of the descending
buckets. The track wire is suspended
by a tension of ten tons, given by a
case of rock at the lowor end. This
wire rests iu grooved saddles at tbe
top of stanchions while the traction
cable passes over revolving beRrers
Tbe merits of the system is the taking'
of weight oil' the moving wire and the
consequent lessening of friction.
The Silver Hill tramway is'two
miles long, has a fall of 2,100 feet
and is the longest two-wire system in
British Columbia and the eighteenth
one Mr. Riblet has built in this province. All the parts of it, with the
exception of the cable und the castings, were made in his works in Nelson, lhe towers are of four posts
each, the arms being braced to the'
uprights. The longest span is- 2,000
feet. The track cable ia one inch in
diameter and the travelling cable
three-fourths of an inch. They are
made of the best English stocl 7iir��
aod were wound in Montreal. Tbe
track cable was specially made to
order ard consists of only two pieces.
There is a break in the centre lor the
tension station. The two portions are
there connected by a guide rail carrying the load from the upper to the
lower cable. The ordinary speed at
which the cable will run is 300 feet
per minute or about three and one-
half miles an hour.
The   completion   of   this  excellent
tramway marks another  step

Le Roi Discontinues Injunction Proceedings Against Miners' Union.
S. S. Taylor returned yesterday
Irom Ros��land where he had been
called on account of the pending
.litigation between the Le Roi Mining
company and the Miner's union and
individual members of the union over
the temporary injunction that was
granted by Mr. Justice Irving
at Greenwood lai-t fall, As a part of
the terins oi settlement with the union
it was agreed that this litigation
should be dropped and tins was formally done ou Monday. Thc interim
injunction wns very sweeping in its
nature and enjoined the miners from
having committees rne-it the trains
anywhere iu Canada to persuade persons who might be going to work at
the Le Roi mine from doing so, from
picketing the mine, and, in fact,
from doing anything or saying anything to the non-union miners except
explain the eiioutnvtances tn them. '
Mr. Taylor states that there seems
to be the utmost confidence hetween
the miners and Mr. MoKenzie, of the
Le Roi, while be has said thut be did
not coma to Rossland to fight but to
mine and so long as the miners attended to their business he would attend
to hiB. It was said that every union
miner in Rossland is now working.

the recklessness of sonic of Ihe skaters
this lias byiin more hy good * luck than
good management. Two unfortunates

High   Appreciation   in     Winch    Mr.
Robertson Was Held in Rossland.
On tbe streets of Nelson almost the
one subject of conversation yesteiday
was the loss the city had suffered
through the death of her most dis-!
tinguished citizen. J. Roderick
First among his characteristics mentioned was the breadth of his interests
in every part of the district. It is admitted without hesitation that he had
unbounded confidence in the Kootenays and hia excellent faculty for
organisation and lor raising enthusiasm in others played an important
part in the attention that has been
paid to mining during the past few
years. He was a thorough believer
in the wealth of the district and it
was his delight to see it progress independent of his financial interests.
It was as a result of this guiding
thought that he took so active a part
in the organisation of the Mine
Owters' association and in the Associated Boards of Trade. This spirit,
too, was demonstrated in tbe part he
took tu prnonre the establishment of
a refinery for lead at Nelson. He also
favored the publication of mining
statistics that the district might be
more prominently brought before the
attention of the outside world, and it
was in deference to the wishes ol his
principals that these bave not heen
regulrrly published. Many instances
were related of his warmth of heart
toward all, though some at first w.ould
not suspect the geniality of his
nature. As never before everyone now
realises that he has lost a man who
bad been a real friend, whom perhaps,
they had not fully appreciated till lie
has been taken away and general
sympathy was expressed for his
bereaved family and inquiries made
for their welfare. All would have
liked to be able to sho v in some public way their appreciation of him, but
so far bis late secretary bas made no
statement of any kind in connection
with his death, as, no douot, he is
overcome by the great loss which be
bas Butaincd,
A. L. Davenport returned yesterday
from a stay of two months in Spo-.
kane, While away he visited Sump
ter, Oregon, which ho says is now a
prosperous camp. He takes a hopeful
view of the mining situation in British Columbia and says that when one
gets on the outside and sees what
tber distircts are doing,or not doing,
he can seo that steady progress is
being made and that tbe prospects are
good in Nelson and surrounding
oountry. He returns on business connected with another payment ou the
Rayonne mine, on which he and partners have a force of meu working all
Largo St. Louis Hotel Suffers From
tho Raging Flames.
St. Louis, Jan. 2.��� At SMO tonight
tiro 'broke out in the six story building
in Washington avenue occupied by
the L. Rauman Jewelry company, and
in 15 minutes the building was a roar
l.ig furnace. A benvy wind was blowing and the fire seemed liable to
spread in all directions. At 10 o'clock
the Lindcll hotel, which is sitnatcd
directly east of the Ilnumsn building,
caught fie and was destroyed, The
guests had ample time to leave the
hotel and there were probably no
causuulties in this direction. The
l.re department was unable to control
the fire, the high wind carrying the
flames hundreds of feet in the air.
Two hundred and thirty guests of the
Lindcll hotel weie driven from their
apartments into the streets by the raging flames, which wrecked the adjoining buildings at the corner of Seventh
streot and Washirgton avenue, and
threatened to sweep away the
hostelry. The losses snfferod by the
concerns will approximate $H00,0 0.
Uses Herpicide Successfully   in Treating Sycosis of the Beard.
He says: ''I recsntly treated a case

of the lower lip, with Newbro's Herpicide. There was an extensive loss
of beard with inflammation extending
well down on the chin. The result
of the application of Herpicide w��s
