Eleventh Year
JAPAN NOW
READY FOR WAR
Fears  That   Her   Relations
With Russia May Result
in Conflict.
British Government Takes a
Pessimistic View of the
Situation,
London, March 22.���The foreign
oflice takes a pessimistic view of the
immediate future in the Far East in
spite of the settlement of the Tien
Tsin dispute and entertains grave
fears that relations between Japan
and Russia may shortly reach the
danger point. Judging from information obtained iu various official quarters in London, Japan has confided to
at least some of the powers her de -
termination to oppose at all costs any
secret agreements made between Russia and China by which the former
oould secure territorial or other advantages contiguous to Korea. The
British government received no official
confirmation that the Japanese fleet
is mobilizing, but it would not be
surprise to learn that such were the
fact.
A highly placed British official said
to a representative of the Associated
Press today:
"All Japan wants is a free hand
against Russia. This she has got so
far as England and Germany are concerned, and, I presume so far as the
United States government is concerned, although 1 do not imagine for one
moment that any of tlie powers mentioned would be drawn into a win-
between Japan nnd Russia. If Japan
sees nothing for it hut to fight, she
woulrl have the moral support of ob-*
jectlons committed to paper by ut least
two other powers against secret treaties with China. That is ail; but Japan sr cms to consider it sufficient to
provide against interference."
Confirmation of the foregoing definition of the solution wns afforded by
the secetury of the Japanese  legation.
Berlin, March 22.���The war office
has received the following from Count
Von Waldei.ee: "The Anglo-Russian
disputejit Tien Tsin has been settled
from a military standpoint in a manner satisfactory to both parties at a
conference between (Jencral Wogaclr
and General Barrow. Doth guards
nnd posts have been withdrawn and
salutes have been exchanged. The
British declare that no offense to tlie
Russian flag was intended, nnd that
the alleged removal of the Russian
boundary marks was neither by the
command nor with tlie knowledge of
tbe military authorities."
The work on the disputed land will
not be continued until tho governments have reached an agreement us
to its possessions or until a special
understanding has been attained.
London, Mnroh 22.���Sir Henry
Campbcll-Ilannerman moved the adjournment of the house today In order
to cull attention to the failure of the
government to givo the house Information yesterday of the settlement of
tho Tien Tsin dispute. The whole
opposition seconded tho motion. The
government leader, Mr. Unltoui', do-
dared he had never hoard an adjournment suggested on such a frivolous
��iute.\t. Perhaps It was desirable that
ord I.unsdowne Bhould have sent
the Information to the house, hut < It
was absurd to attack him, Mr. Dal-
four, for not doing so, The liouso
divided on the question uf tlie adjournment, which wus defeated by n
Tote of SAO to HIS.
THE CURLING   CLUB,
Business Wound Up at   tlie   Semi-Ail-
nual Meeting   Last Night.
Tbo soml-annnHl meeting of the Nelson Curling club took place at the
Hotel Hume lust night. Tlie business
of the organization for tlie season wus
wound up, and for the first time in
the history of the club the books
showed a cash balance in hand. The
season closed a few weeks ago was
easily the most successful in the history of local curling; nnd with a
view to holding tho club together tho
suggestion hns been mudo that tho
members should take up tho pastime
of lawn bowling, whicli resembles in
many respects the "ronrln' game."
At last night's meeting the matter
was brought forward and discussed
witli interest. Those presont appeared to be much interested in the prnpo
si tion, and it is probable that if the
lawn bowling scheme proves feasible
there will be no difficulty in securing
all the   players   desired.
The only matter which will prevent
tbe proposition going into effect will
be a possible difficulty in securing
proper grounds. A bowling crease
requires to be liberal in dimensions
and well sodded, the quality of the
play depending in so small measure
fin tbe condition of the grounds.   Ae
good sod is lisril to obtain in this district it may pt, ��� necessary for the
new club to '_. 0"//)c. -'"uple of carloads from the out...' *i __ l
A special committee c_. I'tVy <,,*
John A. Turner, Dr. E. C. <.- *Ji
and Franu A. Tamblyn was appointed to go into the matter of grounds.
If it is found that the plan can he put
into effect a general meeting will he
called for the purpose of considering
the question of organi.aiton.
In connection with the winding up
of the curling season for 1901, The
Miner desires to express its appreciation of many oouitestes at the hands
of Vice-president Frank A. Tamblyn,
in connection with the games during
tlie winter.

LOVE'S DREAM SHATTERED
Gol. Steele Anxious to Retire
From Northwest Mounted Police.
A   STOLEN   HONEYMOON   INTERRUPTED   HY   THE CHIEF
OF POLICE.
ITALIAN    YOUTH    ELOPES   FROM
GREENWOOD   WITH   WOMAN
MUCH HIS SENIOR.
The Kootenay hotel saw the finish
of an interesting romance yesterday
when Chief of Police Jarvis ruthlessly
tore Cassi Torretti, aged 17, from the
arms of his beloved Teresa Bompelli,
aged 40, and informed bim that he
would have to return to his mother
today. The happy .couple were eujoy-
ing a stolen honeymoon Bnd tbe young
man was terribly cast down when he
learned that the strong arm of the
law had stopped in to interrupt his
dream. Cuss! and-Teresa had spent
four or five days of unalloyed pleasure
in Nolson and were coming to tbe
conclusion that the Queen City of Kootenay suited them immensely. Now
the youthful lover will have to return
to his home in tlie Boundary nnd will
probably pay up for the short period
of bliss with an intcrlvcw in whioh
the slipper of his maternal parent will
figure prominently.
The hero and heroine of the elopement to which the chief of police's ap-
pcnriiirec put an end, are Italians.
Torretti is a good looking and sturdy
lad of seventeen summers at the outside. His partner in the escapade is
probably about forty years of age and
big enough to make four of tho lad.
Age nnd weight, however, cut no figure when love sets thu puce, and thus
it was that Cassi and Theresa hurriedly loft their homes in Greenwood
and headed for Nelson determined to
find a sojourning place where nothing
should interfere with the devotion
thoy folt for cneli other. Thoy put up
at the Kootenay hotel and were enjoying the experience immensely, when
Chief Jarvis put in un appearance.
The officer had been notified by wlro
of what, had occurred und was requested to see that the lud was sent' home
as soon as possible. Cassi didn't want
to go buck to Greenwood. Tbo town
would bo a wilderness without Teresa,
and when tbe chief insisted the youth
was badly broken up. T'crcsu may follow him If she likes, for tlie Chief's
Instruction do not concern her und
ihe is at liberty to go wherever her
will muy dictate.
This morning's train will carry to
Greenwood a youthful Italian who
bus learned at a tender age Hint the
course of I run lovu runs unilil rouks

over a boulder of large dimensions,
TROOPS WITHDRAWN.
Disputed   Territory   In   China Abandoned���Question of Indemnity.
Pekin, March 22.-Tlie Hritish head-
quarters here report the withdrawal
of both Kusslati and British troops
from tlie disputed territory at Tion
Tsin. M. Do Giers, the Russian minister to China, believes that everything will bo amicably udjusted at'St.
Petersburg nnd doubts tbe possibility
of further trouble in the matter.
General Voyrou, commander of the
French troopB has ordered a now regiment to Tien Tsin to replace the one
now there. At the meeting of tho foreign ministers this morning the only
question considered was tbat of policing the legations' quarters.
A committee of ministers has been
appointed to discover China's resources
and report on hor ability to pay the
indemnity to be demanded by the
powers.
Many ministers lire strongly opposed to China's having to pay to keep
an army of ten or twelve thousand
men here for the next two years,
thinking tills entirely unnecessary.
Even those ministers who wero here
during Hie siege , are tired of seeing
Pekin a military camp. Tbey hope
China will be put upon her feet us
soon as possible.

CITY'S  LIGHTING SYSTEM
QUESTION OF SECURING FURTHER
POWER FACILITIES IS UNDER
CONSIDERATION.
LIST OF   THE <NEW   SIDEWALKS
WHICH   ARE   TO BE  CONSTRUCTED.
The question of securing further
power facilities for the operation of
the City's electric; lighting system is
now fairly before the city council, the
proposition of J. Keith Reid to erect
a powei plant at Kootenay bridge
having beeen taken up at a meeting
of the board of works yesterday.
Chairman Patterson informs The Miner that the matter was gone into at
considerable length, and finally referred to tbe .city engineer, for an
opinion. Whether or not the proposition will be gone into it is probable
that the question of power having
been opened up, the council will take
it up and determine on some course of
action. The corporation now has a
mill site and water rights at a point ten
or twelve miles down tire river and
can utilize these if necessity demands.
Referring to the matter, Alderman
Patterson soys: "If the eity goes in
for a new power house, the present
property will be a very valuable asset
for the purpose of inducing manufacturers to looate here. The present facilities develop some 430 horse power, and with this available for manufacturing purposes, the city should
be in a position to secure various institutions which would materially assist in the growth ot the town. Cheap
power is a strong inducement to manufacturers, und with the Cottonwood
creek plant available we will be in a
position to hold out very decided advantages. "
Alderman Patterson also stated that
the committee had recommended to
tho council the construction of the
sidewalks petitioned for as follows:
Six foot walk on the east side of
Stanley street from Robson to nous-
ton streot.
Six foot walk on the east side of
Josephine street from Mill to Hoover
street.
Six foot walk on the east side of
Hull street from Latimer to Robson
street.
Six foot walk on the south side of
cover Btreet from Hall to Hendryx.
Six foot walk on the north side of
Observatory street fiom Ward to
Stanley.
A crossing on tho west side of Josephine street across Lake.
Crossing on tlie oast side of Josephine street across Victoria.
Extension of the sidewalk on the
south side of Robson street cast to
Hall street und a walk to Miss Houghton's residence.
A walk on the north side of Carbonate street from Cedar to Park
with a crossiug on Cedar street across
Park.
The opening of the lane between
Latimer and Hoover streets from
Ward to Stanley.
The grading of the road at the corner of Kootenay and Robson itreuts.
A recommendation will also be made
to the effect that the city wharf bo
braced sufficiently ' to withstand the
effects of high water.
The matter of the application for a
site for n Hour mill came before the
committee and was favorably received.
Before further action will be taken
the promoter of the project will be
requested to place before the committee a definite statement of what he
desires to secure from the city.

BELATED     WEDDING     PRESENT.
He Is in Nelson En Route to
Scene of the Outbreak
at Phoenix.
Dr. C. I. Fagan, of Victoria, secretary of the provincial health board,
arrived in the city last night en route
to Phoenix, where he will investigate
tho smallpox cases reported from that
point and ascertain that proper mens
ures are being taken to prevent the
spread of the disease. The last teport
received from Phoenix by Dr. Fagan
was similar to that received here.
namely that eight cases existed. The
length of his stay there will be governed by tho exigencies of the case.
On bis return he proposes to spend a
day or two here and then to proceed to
East Kootenay for tlie purpose of examining the situation there.
In regard to the preventatrve measures taken by the Nelson authorities
to prevent contagion from the infected points, Dr. Fagan is disposed to
criticize somewhat the clause of the
regulations requiring travelers from
infected districts to produce certlfl
cates of vaccinaton within three
months. He considers that vaccination within a year or two would be
ample provision, particularly as the
provincial authorities have established a strict quarantine at the infected
towns and are sparing neither trouble
nor expense to prevent tho spread of
the plague. "I believe," says tire
medical health officer for the province,
"that we have the smallpox fairly
in hand at the present time and will
have no difficulty in stamping it out
at an early date."
Readers of The Miner arc aware
that at the present time obligations
incurred nt the time of tbo smallpox
outproak here a year ago are still unpaid for the reason tbat the quostlun of
responsibility _ hns been at issue.
These obligations aggregate something
like 83,000, and the parties to whom
the various sums are owing include
professional men, merchants, builders
and others. It is contended on the
part of the city that as tbe one case
which gave rise to all tho expenditure
originated outside of the city und was
only admitted within the corporation
on suffrance, the province is very
properly liable to bear the expense Incurred. When queried on this point
last night Dr. Fagan reuiurked:
"The last word I heard regarding
the matter at the capital was that tlie
province would not pay these accounts. In taking this action the
provincial authorities are only following tho course pursued with nil incorporated cities. The fact was that the
fiatlent was only found to be sufl'er-
ng from smallpox after be bad conic
into Nelson and once lie wus inside
tho city limits the province's jurisdiction ended and the municipality's began. An appropriation was brought
down to meet tlie probable expense of
tbe case but this action was taken
before the matter was investigated,
and when it was looked Into we had
no course open other than to decide
that the city was responsible nnd not
the province It anything was done
by the province toward Snoring the
cost it would be out of good feeling
and not because tlie province admitted
any liability. Tho cases at Rcuver-
ton wore looked after bv the provincial board which bore all the expense
when tho bills were properly submitted, I am very sorry that a iiilHuiirlcr-
stnndlng arose, but the mistake will
not be niaile nguln."
FISHER VS.  HARRIS.
Will Ho Tried at the Next   Hitting   of
the Supreme Court,
It Is now regarded as assured that
the case of Fisher vs. Harris will come
to trial ut the next sitting In Nelson
of the supreme court. Tho suit involves the tltlo to tho group of claim
iu the White Grouse basin which w.rc
bonded last full to a stiong San Francisco syndicate by Mrs. Jennie E.
Harris of Kaslo, und as the purchase
price agreed upon wns 812,1,0011 it is
probable a pitched legal battle will be
fought before tho matter Is adjusted.
Mrs, Harris bad negotiated Ihe deal
for the sale of the claims and thu representative of the syndiente, Philip
Corcoran, wns In Nelson with a marked check for Jio.oon to make the llrst
payment, when one of the Interests
bolted and the consummation of the
deal wns postponed. Since then negotiations for a settlement of the disagreement among the owners have
been under way and nt one time It
seemed as though the mailer would
be arranged amicably While In thu
city yesterrlaj, however, Mrs. Harris
stated that no settlement could be arrived at and that tbe ease would undoubtedly come to trls). She Is confident of a victory in Ihe courts. Mrs.
Hsi ris is one of Hie   very   few   ladles
Reached the Recepients Nine Months
Aftor Marriage Ceremony.
To receive a wedding present nine
mouths after the gift was made is
rather an unusual experience in these
days of rapid delivery, yet such was
the experience of B. H. Patterson,
foreman of the Highland mine at
Ainsworth. On tbe occasion of Mr.
Patterson's marriage a number of
his friends purchased a handsome dinner set at the Hudson's Bay stores,
and had the box containing the gift
delivered at the Waverley hotel where
Mr. Patterson was residing at the
time. When the box was delivered it
was placed In the store room with Mr.
Patterson's belonging,but no one happened to mention the fact to the recipient. The result was that when Mr.
Patterson left he did not remove the
box and it would probably have been
lying at tbe hotel yet had not one of
tlie subscribers.chanced to ask if he
'.iked the dinner set. The query started nn investigation, and after much
running about the town, the box was
located in the store room at the Waverley where it bad lain undisturbed
foi eight or nine months.

Granby smelter in efficiency, both in
regard to equipment, labor saving
devises and cheapness of treatment.
Two parties of Great Northern surveyors of 14 mcu each got off nt Mar-

of mining, if it is needed to insure
the rapid development of the coal
mines in that district it should be undertaken as a provincial work.
In the debato on the public school
bill today, the clause making it compulsory for tho school trustees to have
$500 wortli of real estate was opposed by Mr. Hswtbornthwaite.who said
that the tendency might be to create
a board more anxious to keep down
the tax on rcul estate than to advance
tho educational interests of the city.
Garden, Tatlow and the opposition
also favored striking out this section,
which finally stood over. On the aeo-
tion to relieve the board from tbe necessity of having books examined by
the city council, Hon. Mr. Turner
rose and said be would not support It.
A number of other government supporters expressed the Birme view and
the section was withdrawn.
The bill confirming the right of the
province to collect royalty on timber
cut on lands granted on a subsidy
to railways was read a third time.
Almost every section of the school
bill wns opposed vigorously, and tlie
tenth clause only was reached when

GOVERNMENT OWNERSHIP.
In another column we publish a
very interesting communication from
James Bannerman, on tbe subject
of government ownership of railways.
Taking a specific case in which the
government might apply the principle,
Mr..Bannerman presents a very strong
argument in favor of the construction
of the proposed Crows' Nest Pass
Southern railway as s public undertaking. Assuming that the amount
of business which will be offered the
road from the development of the coal
fields will be as large as has been estimated by experts, it seems quite
plain that it would be a very good
business proposition for the government to underake the construction of
the road. The sentiment in favor of
such a policy is steadily growing in
Canada. In the eastern provinces it
has already assumed formidable dimensions, and even in British Colum
bia signs are not wanting that tbe
day is not tar distant when the policy
of government ownership of railways
will be adopted by tbe provincial administration. Proof of this is fur-
. nished in the announcement made on
./Thursday last by Premier Dunsmuir
j. tbat in granting a charter for tbe
.Coast-Kootenay railway provision will
be made for the aquirement of the
road by the province after a term of
years. This is a very decided step
in the direction of the nationalization
of public necessities, and may be taken as indicating that in the very near
future such a policy will be wholly
adopted in fact.       >
THE MINING   INDUSTRY.
In an interivew with the Victoria
. Times, W, M. Brewer, mining engineer and correspondent for the Engineering and Mining Journal, of New
York, makes some interesting observations relative to the situation affecting the mining industry in British Columbia. He admits that it is not in
ns prosperous a condition as in some
other sections of the world, notwithstanding the fact that the output for
Hint) averaged about 25 percent, great
er than for the year previous. He
thinks tbat one of the chief troubles
is that' there is too large an area of
mineral bearing ground held by prospective, and others in such a poor
state of development that none of
the claims possess any real value, because there are not sufficient indications shown to warrant an attempt to
interest outside capital. Mr. Brewer
suggests, as a remedy for this, giving
permission for men to hold only tlie
number of claims they could develop
properly. This being done there would
be u vast urea thrown open for other
men to exploit. This seems very
good reasoning and we think that un
til the prospectors and investors themselves learn the wisdom of such a
course from experience or else are
taught by legislation, this province
will not progress as rapidly us her
mineral resources really warrant
Dealing with the government's re
sponsibility In connection with the
fostoring of the mining industry, Mr
Brewer thinks they are "up against a
hard proposition." He says: "Rev
enue must be raised to keep the country running. Somebody must be taxed to raise thut revenue, and the question is as to who ought to pay the
heaviest taxation. I doubt if there
Is a representative of nny industry in
fills or nny other province but who
will claim thut his luxes arc too high.
Personally it looks to mo as though
a producing industry should be foster
ed and cherished especially in the
stage In whicli tlie mining Industry
is in the province today; and at any
rate the luxation on the output must
appear to tho world ut large and
especially to prospective Investors as
though tire disposition was to dis
courage rather than foster the Indus
try, For yeais we fought successfully
agulnst the Imposition upon the out
put, wbluli the farmers in the leglslu
ture of South Dakota invariably at
every season endeuvored to put on the
product of the mines in the Hlae���
Hills, whioh formed a very small section of the territory. Much time and
money were expended, nnd a good
deal wnsted at every scbbIou, because
of the necessity of sending lobbyists
to the legislature to defeat the farmers' purpose of tbe Imposition of such
u tax. Fortunately, however, the
lobbyists were ulways successful, and
to this fact almost as much ns nny
other Is duo tbe present prosperity nnrl
progress of thut comparatively small
camp, in aiea covering about as many
square miles as the Srinilkameerr mining division, but the output of which
runs up to about ��l 1,000,000 per year.
I know many people object to comparisons being drawn between this province and sections of the United States,
but when we come to consider that
it Is experience and the ability to
draw comparisons from sctual observ-
ution which   gives   value tu the opin-
MR.   BLAIR'S  VIEWS.
In yesterday's edition of The Miner
tbe   very   interesting    announcement
was made in a special   dispatch   from
Ottawa that the   railway   committee,
acting upon tlie   suggestion   of   Hon.
Mr. Blair, rejected   the application jf
the British Columbia   Southern   railway   company   for     power   to   build
branch lines throughout   the province
whenever authorized by the goveruor-
ln-council aud   to get a five years' extension of time in   which   to complete
the road. The committee also  adopted
the minister of   railway's   suggestion
to   give   the   company one  year's extension in which to   begin   work   and
to limit its power to build from   Fort
Steele to Golden.    Mr, Blair   has been
looked upon as the strong man of   the
cabinet   and   apparently   he  well deserves   tbat   reputation, as      hat   he
says generally "goes."    The minister
of railways has very broad ideas upon
the   subject   of   railway   construction
in the west.    Dealing with   this question   a   few     days     ago     be     said:
"The   question of   railway   construe
tion in Canada is not   one   vt'     '       s
ceased to be a live question.   I believe
we are only entering   upon   the work
of   railway   construction   in   Canada.
Railways   are     just   as   necessary at
highways.    You will have to increase
your railways   in   our   great   western
country ten fold, twenty fold, perhaps
one hundred fold, before   you get that
country  developed. {We are, in   fact,
only upon the threshold of the'opening
up and the proper   development of our
gieat western inheritance.    Let us not
forget that the people in these   different localities are impressed to a degree
that we perhaps in  this section of the
country can   hardly   realize   with Unimportance   of   having  railways   laid
down in their  midst.    These railways
are an absolute   and   vital   necessity,
if this country is to be filled up;   and
when the   people   are crying   out   fcr
railways,   I do not   think It would 1 e
a wise policy for parliament   to place
undue obstacles in the way of chartering these roads.    The same experience
will be undergone in the west that we
have had   in   the   east.   We will find
people there crying   out almost in despair for the construction   of railways
to  the   great   centres of the country,
supplicating   their   municipalities for
help, giving   aid   themselves,   calling
upon the provincial   legisatnre to con
tribute, and also  upon   the Dominion
parliament   to come to   then    rescue,
They do   so   because railways   are to
them a paramount   necessity,   and be
cause there is  no   reasonable   amount
of debt that they do   not feel justified
in incurring   in order   to  secure railway   construction   in     their     midst.
Therefore, we in this part of the country ought not tir-bfl   any loss generous
in our treatment  of  applications  for
railway assistance iu   these   unopened
sections of our   great   west   than   we
have been in the past in   dealing witli
applications  for   railways   nearer the
great centres and   in tlie   older prov
inces   of   Canada.    We must not shut
our eyes to tbe growing  necessities of
that country.    We   cannot   refuse   to
give   It   liberal     treatment.    If     we
should we will be ndopting nn unwise
policy, and one  which will be attend
ed with    much   more   serious   results
than even   a   little done to tlie   other
extreme."
Railways, railways, railways! If a
man had a cent for ever time the word
railway is mentioned in British Columbia tlrese days Carnegie would
not be "In It" with him us a bloated
millionaire.
Inasmuch us the members of the
board of works huve decided to grant
the request for a mill site made by tire
parties who purpose establishing u
Hour mill here, It seems certain thnt
anothei important addition will short
ly be made to Nelson's industries.
It    is   earnestly   lo bo   hoped   that
there   will   bo   a ready   and generous
response to Secretary Bwannel's application for public subscriptions tc
defray the cost of sending u board of
trade delegate to Ottawa to Interview
tho government on tho matter of tlie
establishment of the propose,
finery.
Capt. Dernier will start shortly on
his expedition In search of tlie North
Pole. It would seem to be In accordance with tlie eternal fitness of things
if tlie duty of locating that much-
sought-for point should be successfully
srried out by a Canadian, representative ot n rnco which seems to excell
in everything.
It is hard to say whicli of tbe rival
applicants for a charter to build the
Coast-Kootenay railwny will be favored by the government; but, rending
between tbo lines of lire rather ambiguous announcement of governmental
policy made orr Thursday, it would
not be nt all surprising if support is
given to the 0, P, 11. proposal.

Mr. Martin oppo.es the idea of imposing a duty on lumber, on the
ground that it savors too much of protection. Perhaps it does, but its exactly the kind of protection the industry requires.
Mr. Joseph Martin has introduced a

probably exercising wise precaution
to ensure a means of earning a livelihood whon he retires from politics.

QUESTION ANSWERED.
Yes.August Flower still has the largest sale of any medicine in the civilized world. Your mothers and grandmothers never thought of using any
thing else for Indigestion or HiliouS-
ness. Doctors were scarce, and they
seldom heard of Appendicitis, Nervous
Prostration or Heart failure, etc.
They used August Flower to clean out
tlie system and stop fermentation of
undigested food, regulate the action
of the system, and that is all they
took when feeling dull and bad with
headaches and other aches. You only
need a few doses of Green's August
Flower, in liquid form, to make you
satisfied there is nothing serious the
matter with yon. For sale by W. F.
Teetzel & Co. Get Greens' Prize Almanac.
If yon don't like Blue Ribbon Tea it's
because you've never tasted it.

per day promised when the road is
completed. That means i!00 cars of
.0 tons each, or 20 train loads of 15
cars each per clay. Where is there in
Canada a railway with such tonnage?
Why, we think it a big thing when
00 cars arrive in Nelson in a day;
and it is a big tiring. But fancy five
times that many!

people we can laugh at any American
combination to shut up our smelters

as to its value. About two and a half
feet of ore well mineralized was found

MADE A TEST
To Prov# the Effeots of Coffee-
In order to be sure that it really
was coffee that had oewedIthiitrou-
lbe to my husband and myself, we
made a careful test with tire following results: We bad been using
coffee, moio or less, for twenty years,
and for many years husband was troubled with headaches, sluggish circulation,    and dizzy spells. I   had   sick
Jada.hcs, stomach trouble and felt
nervous and despondent most of the
time Two years ago we began using
I'ostum Food CoiTeo in place of our
coffee. Husband soon began to improve, and looked  and   appeared   ltke
Another pe�����"' AU the <$<$"'!?'
nhl. symptoms disappeared. In order
?���blbe sur. that it was the coffee that
,_d caused the trouble lie began
rinking coffee again/.and the old cll_-
_v sdcIIs, sluggishness and headaches
.egaPn to come back. That settled it,
and he immediately dropped coffee for
K���od and all. and has since been using Postum und is perfectly healthy.
I have stuck to I'ostum, and am today
a healthy, fleshy. iosy woman, where
before I was thin, pale and sallow.
You may believe we know something
about whether coffee agrees with us
or not, and we also know how well
Postum does agree with US.
Mrs Madison, 128 H. Division St.,
here in Auburn, N. Y., has been cured of indigestion and nervousness by
leaving off coffee aud taking up Postum Food Coffee. 	
Mrs. Caffery, 1447 S. Halloa St., has
beer, greatly bneflttcd by using Postum after leaving off coffee.

To the Editor,���Much has been said
recently  about   the    advisability   of
granting   a charter   for a  roatl   from
Fernie to the   Boundary.    Many   contend   that   to do so would   mean   the
putting of our smelter interests at the
mercy of the large trusts.   Those who
are in   favor of granting  the  charter
say tbat until the people as represented
by   their   government    undertake   to
build   railways,   charters   should   be
granted   to   all companies   willing to
build without bonus.    To prevent any
combination   against  British   Columbia smelters power should be taken to
prevent export of   coul  and coke until
all Hritish Columbia orders are  filled.
There is another   party (and  it is a
growing one) thut   suys that ull charters   should be refused, and   that  the
government step in and build thu railways for the people.   They  say   (and
with reason) that the people   of   Canada   by bonuses and  guarantees  have
built the roads aud that the promoters
own   them,   while  thoy,   the  people,
have to pay   freights large enough   to
pay expenses and interest on their'own
money.    Sir,   I believe   that   nowlrero
in Canada is there u better   opportunity presented for a government building and owning a   railway   than   we
have here todav.
The Crow's Nest Coal company say
that by tne time, a ruilway is completed from Fernie to the boundary
line they will be able to deliver coal
to that line at tire rate of 0,000 tons
per day besides filling all demands
made ou them from the home market. James J. Hill on the oilrer hand
agrees to find a market for that quantity. Now a railway from Fernie to
the boundary, say 100 tulles, can bo
built equul to tho Columbia A Western
extension for 18,000,000, That is a
high standard to aim at, but none too
high for a roarl carrying such
traffic.
The output of coal  at 0,000 tons per
day will amount   to 1,800,000   tons  a
year of 300 working days. On this our
government   has a   royalty of 10 centB
per ton, equal to 8180,OOO   per annum.
The government   can issue  $.'1,000,000
thirty   year bonds  at four   per   cent.
For this they should  get par.   It will
take 1180,000 to pay   interest,   leaving
still JOO.OOO of the royalty.   This (flit),-
000 per annum put into a sinking fund
at four per cent   will   in thirty   years
retire the S3,000,000 bonds   and   leave
1200,000   besides   to   pay   for looking
after   the   sinking   fund.    The    road
when comlpeted can be leased to   Mr.
Hill for a term of years.    For   such   a
lease he   should   pay SI,10,000  per nn
num, or five per cent, on   the   outlay.
No doubt he could be   Induced to sign
au agreement   to   that   effect   besides
building   the   necessary    connections
from   the boundary   line to   Kalispell
or some other point on   his main line.
