Rhodes' Last Resting
Successful Plaster Cast
Statesman's Features
London, March 2a.���Iu a despatch
from Capetown, tha correspondent lm-e
of the Daily Mail says that Cecil
Rhodes selected the spot where he
do3ired to be buried and instructed an
architect about the memorial to be
erected when he last visited Matopto
hills. The place of burial is boneath
a natural cairn of giant boulders, on
a kopje adjoining that on wnich
Major Wilson's liltic force made its
last stand. The memorial to be erected will be a prominent feature of tbe
striking landscape.
The Jute of the interment of the
body o! Mr. Rhodes is doubtful, says
the oorrrespondent, owing to the
necessity of tlie construction of a
special carriage load from Uuluwayo.
At pesent there is nothing more than
a bridle path. Work on this road has
already been begun, but its completion will require one month. The
correspondent says that a death mask
has heen successfully taken. The
features whieh were distorted as a
result of his malady, resumed their
reposeful dignity in death. Aftor the
autopsy which revealed au extensive
aneurism of the heart, tlie remains
were placed in a coilin and conveyed
this morning to Groote Sehuur.
The body has since b^ei; placed in
a shell. It was found impossible to
embalm it, owing to the operations
necessitated by the attacks of dropsy.
The body will lie in the hull at
Groote Sehuur until next Monday in
order to enable the public to viow it.
It will be brought to Capetown next
Th executors of thc late Mr. Rhoues
are Lord Rosebery, Earl (Jrey, Alfred
Ileit, a director of the llritish Chartered South Africa Co., Mr. Michel,
B. A. Haw, K. Sely, counsel lor the
Uritish Chartered South Africa Co.,
and Dr. Jameson. The original will
of Mr. Rhodes is in London and will

De Beers oompany are draped la black
nnd all the mines have cloEed down.

I Princess   Radziwill     Elaborated    an
I Extensive System of Fraud.
! Capetown, Marob 27.���The hearing
ot the charges against Princess Radziwill, who is accused of forgery in
connection with notes purporting to
have been signed by Cecil Rhodes was
resumed today. The princess, who
waa apparently in good health and
spirits testified in her own behalf.
Sho was committed for trial, Bail in
��2,500 was furnished by her ana two
The evidence submitted hy the prosecution showed that last August
Princess Radziwill received two
telegrams from Capetown to Kenil-
worth, Cape Colony, purporting to be
from B. A. Hawksley, counsel for the
British Chartered South African company. The princess subsequently
bribed a junior clerk in the telegraph
oflice at Kenilworth for 10s. to insert
"London" as the office of origin of
these telegrams. She then showed tbe
messages to a firm of attorneys as
cablegrams from the solciitor of Mr.
Rhodes. This was done with the
object of securing a low rate of discount on a bill for ��2,000.
Mr. Rhodes cabled advertisements
to South African papers in which he
repudiated his signatures to all bills
but Princess Radziwill afterwards
attempted to discount notes for ��3,000
and ��6,000. The indictment against
the prineess includes 17 counts for
forgery and fraud and a charge of
contravention of the Telegraph Act.

The workers asked for an increase
in pay, a shortening of the working
hours to eight hours a cay and the
adoption of a scale for the entire district. The operators refused to grant
the demands as to time and pay, and
declined to permit the complete
unionizing of their properties. The
operators offered   to   meet  employees
ith grievances at any time but insisted thut there be no dislincti on
between union and non-union men.
They also asserted that the present
market conditions did not warrant

Russia  Will   Find   Pretexts
for Keeping Soldiers
London, March 27.���In a despatch
from Mosaow.the correspondent of the
Daily Graphic gives an interivew
with a Russian staff officer who has
returned from Amur, Sibciia. The
correspondent quotes this officer as
saying that the Anglo Japanese alliance has r-ealed the political destiny
of Manchuria, which, says tne officer,
will never pass out of Russia's possession. The brigandage rampant
there will be used as justification for
the retentiou of a poworful Russian
army. After the brigands have been
suppressed the Russians will remain
in Manchuria to protect tbeir railway
and secure peace in northorn China.
Tbe correspondent of the Daily
Graphic snys that this htaff officer

a fully detailed plan for tbe civil and
military administration of Manchuiia

Get many Stands For Open Door in
China With Reservation.
Berlin, March 27.���The Associated
Press has high auttioriiy for saying
that the government of the United
States has been sounding Germany as
to bow far the latter country would
go toward maintaining tbe "open
dour" in China. This inquiry wbioh
was initiated prior to the trip of
Admiral Prince Henry ol Prussia to
the United States was to learn, for
the guidance of Washington, whethei
in any event Germany would take a
resolute stand foe equal trade oppor
tunities. This inquiry resulted in
obtaining from the very head of the
German empire, the impression that
Germany while willing to take an
identioal attitude with the otber
powers for lhe open door,would not in
a final instance oppose something
that Russia really desired. This is
the first principle of Germany's exterior polioy and it applies fully to
the east Asiatic question.

that the Venezuelan government has
received a roport to the effect that
General Vareta defeated tbo revolutionists under Montilla in the stale of

junction with General Riera. General
Riera is said to have suffered heavy
losses at the hands of the governmont
forces. News reached here that thc
British legation in Caracas has notified tho government of Venozuola that
the governor of tho British island of
Trinidad has been instructed not to
permit the presence of the revolutionary steamer Bolivar at Port of Spain,
or in the llritish West Indies in tbe
Under these instructions tho Bullvar
will not be allowed to coal ut Port ol
Spain. She will probably leavo
Venezuelan waters immediately. She
may proceed to tho French island of
Martinique, The execution of these
orders will piuce tho revolutionary
steamor in a critioul situation. Venezuelan officials consider thut the ose-
fulucss of tbo Bolivar to the revolu
tlonists ia greatly hampered because
of the presence ai Port of Spain of tbu
Venezuelan gunbout Miranda, Bolivar
and Zumbador. These vessels are
under steam day and night, und ure

British Colonies.
New York, March 27.���Parliament
has adjourned for ten days, and tbe
rumor mongers, chilled by the eist
wind have little to chatter ubout, says
the Tribune's London ooriespondeot,
Talk about cabinet reconstrm tion has
died out. No cabiuet changes are
probable this year.
Joseph Chamberlain, colonial secretary, and A. J. Balfour, government
leader in the house of commons, are
intimate frionds and loyal friends and
neither is disposed to supplant or
stand in the way of the other. The
understanding among Mr. Chamberlain's friends is that he is not anxious
to succeed Lord Salisbury or lead the
commons, but expects to roraain_in the
Colonial oflice and work out the settlement of the South African question
after the war.

and Suuth Alrica.

In the death of Cecil Rhodes the
world loses one of her greatest men
and the British empire a citizen whose
place it will he hard to nil. Mr.
Khodes was gilted with the rare
faculty of Eeeir.g the prospects and
possibilities of '.he section in wnich
he was incst interested, Soutb Africa,
aDd did more than any other man to
enlarge British territory and to increase its inUuenoe in tvat portion of
the world. Already the territory over
which the Union Jack floats in South
A'riua is larger than the llritish
po-sessions in Asia, when the empire's
holdings in Southern Africa, Eastern
Africa and Western Africa are added
together. If bH comprehensive and
gigantic plans are carried into effect,
including the construction of the Cape
to Cairo railway, the empire will
secure the lion's share of the continent. The chief aim of his life was
to establish Uritish dominance in
Africa, and be haB accomplished much
in that direction. He was the chief
factor in obtaining mining rights in
Matabeland and Mashoualaod aod
among the actions that may be put
down to his ciedit is the acquisition
of the immense tract of country which
is known as Rhodesia. Up to lSflfi he
was resident director of the British
.South African company which played
an important part in the development
of the resource* of South Africa, aud
whicn also did much in the interest of
obtaining British dominance there.
The question is who is there large
enough, who bas the same knowledge
of the conditions, the same intimate
acquaintance with the sentiments of
tho people of the several oolor.ies, to
take up the important woik wbich he
has carried on now that lie bas laid it
down. It is true, as ne baa given an
outline of his plans, blazed the
way and told of the territorial and
other gains that can he made,that men
of smaller 3alihor aud less discernment can carry them out. His life
work may be compared to that of a
architect. He prepared the plans nnd
specifications and partly built the
structure of British supremacy in
Africa, and provided with these men
ess gifted can complete tho work,
which would he a mero question of
carrying out thc details fnrnishod by
Like other great, men he had foibles
and one of those was that he sometimes underrated the strength of his
oppponents. This was shown by the
fiasco of the Jameson raid in which
he tojk a prominent part. It is claimed, too, that he was nnder the impression that tho resistance of the Boers,
once hostilities against them were
begun, would be short lived Tbis
characteristic) of Mr. Rhodes,however,
is one .that is sharud hy nearly evory
brave and sueeushful man, and is
always one of the attributes' of lenders
of mon of the type of which he was so
pronounce! an example, Thoy are the
sort who win great victories whether
on the   balltk-Nold,   in diplo mucy  or
in   large   Industrial   and  mercantile
enterprise!, On the other hand, other
critics, and   among them Lord   Grey,
hold that Mr. Rhodes fully undeistund
tho btrengtli of the Boers aud was certain that they wold make a stubborn
resistance, but he also wan determined
tliat South Africa must como nnder
the British Hag, no ruiittcc what was
the cost.
Witli the  boldinga    whioh    Great
Britain has acquired in Africa, partially through tho help of Mr.    Rhodes,
with tho natural   adaptability of. th��
Anglo-Saxon us. a colonizer and wit!)
the well known ability of the nation
to hold what they aro onco in pns'cs-
sion of, there Is no reason to doubt
that the ''dream of empire" on thai
continent, which ho so often spoke of
that the red spots whieh mark imperial territory on tho map will he
enlarged   until   it   covers the  larger
portion of the continent, which will
result in increased prosperity to the
people of which be was a member.
When tbat time comes history will
give even more credit tban is
accorded at present t Mr. Rhodes,
acd many will then agree with Bud-
yard Kipling's estimate of him during
his life time as tbe "greaiest living
For several days there bave been
rumors to the effect that the Silver
King mine bac closed down and the
Rossland Miner published a story to
that effect. The management of tbe
Silver King stated yesterday that there
is no truth in the s'.ory. The mine is
shipping its daily quota of 50 tons of
ore and has been doing so for some
time past The story of the shut down
arose over the fact that a few men
who were employed in the lower
levels were dismissed, pending the results of diamond drill explorations
that are in progress.
The Associated boaras of trade did
not add to their power or reputation
for wisdom or fairness |when they
advocated to increase tbe recording
fees to $12.00, says the Cranbrook
Herald. It was a straight drive at tbe
prospector, and would be an additional burden upon him. The Herald
would preler to seo the prospector
encouraged. Were it not for the
bravery and zeal of the prospector,
British Columbia today would consist
of one or two small fishing villages
on the coast aud an unknown wiluer-
oess in the interior. The delegates
who voted in favor oi Increasing the
tax on the prospector should nang their
heads in shame. They bave been and

One hundred and fifty lumbermen,
representing practically all the large
mills and lumbering interests of the
Central Western States, will ou June
3rd leave Minneapolis for a tour of the
Pacific ooast and will visit tbe coast
cities of British Columbia. The itinerary will embrace a visit to the
grand gorge of the Colorado, Los
Angeles, .San Francisco, Portland,
Tacoma, Seattle, Viotoria and Vancouver, and otner points before starting homeward over the CanadiaL
Pacific. A stopover is provided for at
Banff. The local Tourist association
should at once open up correspondence
witb the Mississippi Valley Lumberman, through whicb the excursion is
being promoted,with a view to inducing the party to visit Nelson and
otner points in the Kootenay while on
the way east. By doing this the
party would learn something about
tbe mining interests of the province.
R. Marpole, general superintendent
of the Pacific division of the Canadian
Pacific railway, who haB been in the
south of France for tne benefit of his
health, is now on his way across tbe
Atlantio enroute for Vancouver.
While in London he was interviewed
by the representatives of the different
Journals there. He stated tbat interesting developments may be expected
from the Lardeau division this year,

is constructing into that camp will be
completed by June, and will greatlv
assist in opening up of large ore
bodies which have been exposed. In
discussing the future of he Rossland
camp, Mr. Marpole toon a far more
optimistic view than ihose who have
a less intimate knowledge of the situation. He referred to the building of
a branoh from Spence'a Bridge to
Midway, wbich will open valuable
mineral deposits, and be expressed his
doubt as to tbe existence of a railway
fouto over the Hopo mountains which
would not bo ruinously exponsive to
Lionel II. VVi'bber bas beeu appointed governmont inspector of mines for
the Transvaal. Mr. Webber while a
resident of British Columbia was the
promoter and manager of thc British Columbia Bullion Extracting Co.,
which built a laigo cyanding plant at
Silica, a short distance irom Rossland. The works would prcbably have
been a commercial success were It not
that the Northport smelter out down
lln rate for transpor nnd treatment
of Rossland ores to 14,SO per ton. Thc
plant at Silica was built express y for
the purpose of reducing the lo <    nolo
silicious ore of   the   Rossland    n.li	
The plant has been lying idle OS ol
the time since it was built and u uoi
ho called a commeicial incces . Mt.
Webber, although he did not pre.eid
tu fully understand metallurgy, hired
competent men for the positions in the
Silica works requiring technical
knowledge, and did everything that
was possible to maae the plant a
financial ���uccss, but was unable to
do so Just why his experience in
tills country has made him competent
to 1111 the responsible duties of inspector of mines for tho Transvaal it is
dilliciilt to understanl.

I     MINING NEWS.     J
A carload of ore from the Molly
Gibson came in on the Koaknce yesterday. The mine is now shipping a
car a day. Five four-horse teams aro
engaged in hauliug the ore from the
end of the tramway to the Molly Gibson landing. Tho roud is still a little
soft. Shipments will be kept up
indefinitely as there are large reserves
of ore in the mine. Tbe ore, nine is
being shipped, comes principally from
above No. 5 level at u vertical depth
of 500 feet.
This paper announced last week,says
the Midway Advance, that a deal bad
been made whereby tho Riversido
group had been bonded. Full particulars since received show that a deal
involving the sale ol two groups of
mineral claims, situate near Gieen-
wood and Rock Cicek respectively,
had been closed. The price lias not
been made publio, but it is generally
understood to be about $50,000 in all
and that a large cash payment has
already been made. The purchasers
are Stephen H. .lonos and S. Ely of
Duluth, Minnesota, for themselves
and other capitalists with whom they
are associated in tbis enterprise. The
properties they havo purchased aro tho
Arlington-Bums group, iu the Dead-
wood camp, about two miles Irom
Greenwood, and tbe Riverside group,
on the main Kettle river, a*-out four
miles above the confluence of Rock
creek with that stream.

new customers. ,
tically no particulats uf the accident
bad reached Elko when he left. On
the ovening of Wednesday a messenger came in from Twohey's camp,
about fourteen miles south from Elko,
bringing tbe information that ln an
explosion two men bad been killed
aud that a third was missing. Be had
been dispatched immediately to take
tbat information to Elko and to notify
the coroner. One of tne men was Mr.
Fawcett and the name of the other
was Brown, but nothing further re-
garding him was known. Cluis
O'Donnel, agent tor Twohey Bros, at
Elko, had sent the news to Nelson.
When Mr. McLean left they were
hourly expecting the remains to arrive
at the town.
Mr. McLean stated that Mr.Fawcett
had gone to Elko to be paid for a
team of horses that he bud sold to the
contractors- and had been required to
wait there for a few days to get matters settled. It was probable that he
had found it necessary to go out to the
camp and while thore baa decided to
go to work lor a few days. The work
a being carried on night and day and
where the accident occurred he understood it to be a big earth cut.
At a sawmill near the Elk river
crossing a man bad been killed on
Tuesday and an inquest was being
held when the messenger arrived with
the news of the disaster at Twohey's
Work on the Smelter  and   Mine���The
Lead Refinery.
George W. Hull, president and general manager of the Sullivan Group
Mining Co., was ai, the 1 hair last
evening en route from Spokane to
Marysville, East Kootenay Mr. Hull
has been a successful business man in
other lines and ahuut a year since he
became connected with the Sullivan
Mining Co. When it wns decided to
construct the smelter he assisted
materially in inducing eastern capital
to provide the funds ne'ded. In order
to fit himself for taking an active purt
in the conduct of tbe affairs of the
company he travelled for six months,
visiting the mines and reduction
plants of the United Stales in order to
learn how they wero operated.
Finally he was elected president and
business manager of the Sullivan Co.
In speaking about the Sullivan mine
yesterday he stated that a small force
is engaged in preliminary work at
present and that it was the intention
on May 1st to put a good sized force
to work for the purpose of taking out
ore, developing, etc. Woik is also to
be pushed on the smelter plant of thc
company at Marysville Thoro was a
temporary suspension of operations
owing to inferior brick. lt, will bo
July 1st he said before the plant will
be ready to bo blown in. Tbe smelter
structure 18 roofed and from now on
tho progress of the work should be
lapid. In relation to the lead refinery Mr. Hull stated that tho plans
for the refinery are now being pro-
pared and the task of building it will
be oommenced just as soon as the
smelter plant begins operation. Tho
load reflnery will be ready for operation by the timo a sufficient stock of
bullion is on hand to keep it in operation. Later on tho intention is to
put up load corroding works to manufacture whito lead,
Mr. Hull says that tho Sullivan, St,
Eugene And North Star mines aro a
trio of groat load producers and If
they aro each operated up to anywhere
near thc limit of their capacity tbey
should bo able to produce more than
Bullloiont oro to keep thu Sullivan
smeltor and tho Sullivan lead rollnery
in operation the year round.

Committee Declare Favorably on City
Park Allowance on Cottonwood.
On Wednesday afternoon Aid. Irving
and Solous, City Engineer MeCulloch,
and E. C. Davison, visited the site of
tbe city's park allowance up the valley of Cottonwood creek with a view
of deciding on its adaptability as a
raoo track. All were most favorably
impressed and it ia likely that the
project will be pushed ahead at onco.
There are several Chinamen now
squatting there who have a considerable portion of tho land cleared up
and much of it is level and with very
little work it is thuught that enough
could be fixed up for a race track and
recreation ground.
If tho matter is taken is hand at
onoe, as is likely, the track oould be
ready by the time tho regatta will
come off, and if the two oould be run
consecutively there is nc doub t hut
that with the advertising which will
be done by the Tourist association
that large crowds would be attracted
here for a woek. The celebrations of
tbe first of July thero has always
been in competition with the attractions at a number of other points,
besides Dominion Day comes so near
tho Fourth of July that it is almost
Impossible to get Amerioan visitors.
With tbe regatta coming, as it does,
near the end of July when there will
be nothing special going on at any of
the surrounding townB it should be
nossible with horse races and athletic
games as well, to give a list of attractions that would draw all classes.
A number of responsible parties
have expressed their willingness to
baok up the race track proposition,
and it should prove a very good thing
for the city. The grounds would also
be much more suitable for athletic
purposes than the present location.
As was mentioned in The Miner
before, the putting in of a race traca
hero would complete a racing circuit
aud this would be the means of bringing far better horses into the country
than anyone of the towns ouuld obtain
while acting separately in the matter.
l_ East Kootenay Bnd the Boundary
country especially, the interest in this
line of amusement Is very koen and
Nelson would soon become a centre
from its ounvonient position and equal
distance from both districts. To the
south alsu thore are a number of good
horses available tor races and the race
truck would be well patronised.

V. V. and E. Must Stop Construction
Near Orand Forks For Present.
Victrria, Marob 27.���The argument
on the appeal of the V. V. and E.
against the injunctions made against
tbat company in the suit of the Yale
Hotel company, limited, of Orand
Forks, was concluded yesterday afternoon, the appeal being dismissed.
The case for the plaintiffs, who were
tbe respondents in the appeal, was
argued by H. P. W. Clement, who
addressed their Lordships for nearly a
day and a half and was followed in
reply by A. II. MaoNeill after lunch
yesterday. The full court were not
long in reaching a decision on the
points argued. This was given by
Mr. Justice Drake, and was to the
effect that the questions at issue,
both in law ar.d in fact, viere so important that the whole matter could
not well be decided without completing the action in the usual way, and
that pending this trial the matters
remain in statu quo. The effect ot
this is that the appeal agaibst the injunctions is dismissed and the matter
still stands to restrain the V. V, and
E. from pushing their construction
acioes thc plaintiff's lands.
