His Death at Onion
Creek,
He Was Killed Instantly and
Companion Severely
Wounded.
(SPECIAL, TO THB HINF.R.)
Northport,Wash., March 31,���About
3 o'clock today Ernest Lutz shot and
killed Tomas Kane und wounded John ,,
Lacaase. The difficulty occurred on
Union cre;k, about eight miles southwest of Northport Ernest Lutz and
John Lacasse are neighlioring
ranohors their lands adjoining.
Thomas Kane is a member of tho firm
of Kane Bros., who are running a
sawmill on Onion creek. John
Lacasso, Thomas Kane and C. Kelly
were engaged in surveying and staking the line marking the boundary
between tho ranches of Lacasse and
Lutz. While they wero thus engaged
L-ntz appeared and ordered them off
his ground, claiming tbat thoy were
driving their stakes more than 2nd
feet in on his property and warned
them that if they dia not leave he
would kill them. He then went to his
house and came out with his rifle and
again iniormcd them that he would
kill them it they did not quit driving
stakes on his land. They refused to
leave when Lutz oommenced firing
and the flrst shot struck Kane in the
breast killing him instantly. Another
shot struck Lacasse in the hip.
Lacasse mado his way to a nearby
uamp and Kelly came to Northport f _r
a physician.
The decease1! Thomas Kino was
four years ago a member of the firm of
Kane Bros., general dealers, at Erie
and Craigtown. About three years ago
they sold their business an.) since
have beeu engaged in "lumbering and
in the getting out of wood, and tbis
year hud the contract of supplying the
Northport smelter. They are well
known to the business men of Nelson
and were steady, enterprising young
men
the most brilliant run of the day got
almost over the lino but in passing it
a Nelson player struck it with his
hand and a penalty try was tallied
which Edwards made a goal. The
game thus endo.i with two ties and
one goal to a penalty goal.
Nelson was pressed harder during
the last part of the game though the
ball was in their opponent's territory
when time was called. Among tlic
visitors Beale at three-quarters,
Edwards and W. Taylor at half and
Elwell in tho forward line did excellent work while for th'- home team
Macrae, Nase and Seatle at three-
quarters, and Hodge at halt and
Thompson in the forward line distinguished themselves.
The Nelson players gave a hearty
welcome to the visitors who in the
faco of many discouragements and
with much difficulty got the team
together, and their players were
gathered   from   all parts   of the east.
Tbree were from Moyie, one from
Fort Steele, one Irom Tobacco Plains,
two from Fernie, two from Elko aud
one fiom Kimberley, while the home
team gave them thiee men to complete
tho required number. Cranbrook alone
contributed ro players, some of thoso
coming over saying it was because
there was a ping pong tournament on
for Wednesday night in that towD.
The attendance of spectators waB
large and they thoroughly enjoyed the
gaud game and perfect weather.

.Nelson won tbe toss ard chose to
play into the western goal thus taking advantage ol the wind which
gave them considerable assistance.
Play for the first half was a succession of sorimniagoB and almost novor
did the visitors get tho oval past tho
centre lino. Aftor ten minutes play a
try waB obtained but Macrae failed to
improve it. On play resuming tne
ball waB again gradually worked
forward by a series of scrimmages
and in fifteen minutes Nnso by a
beautiful run secured a try in a position tbat gave evory advantage that
the wind had to give and :.:acrau this
tlmo sent the ball neatly betweon the
posts, scoring the llrst goal to Nelson.
On play resuming the Easterners were
again on the defensive till at Inst
Seatle by one of the most brilliant
cashes ot the day got behind lho goal
line, but this try Hodge failed to
improve.
Wilh thc wind in their favor the
Tisitors made a much better showing
in the second half, but tlieir goal had
several nnrrow escapes. Both teams
adopted   passing   tactics which  mnde
Gold   in   Paying   Quantities   Said
Have Been Found on Cooper Creek.
A correspondent from Kaslo' under
date of March 30, writes: Word has
been received hero from parties who
ean be relied upon, that gold exists in
Cooper creek, three milos from Lardo
city. Proulx, IT]v 1 n and others this
spring gave it a diligent search with
the result that thoy have come to the
eonclusio that geld does exist in paying quantities. Thoy ure now organizing a oompany and will give it a
practical test. Proulx ard Ulvin are
very reticent, but thoy are incorporating a company under tbe title of the
Cooper oreek gold mining oompany.
They have a forjo of men working on
the ground and have located nine
claims. They are building a dam,
and will carry all the waters of
Cooper creek in a flume past the
ground they intend working. A scow
load of lumber left Kaslo this morning, along with other supplies, for
the now company. This lumber waa
specially cut by the Kootenay Lake
sawmill.
The  gold   is   decidedly coarse  and
very often  a   pan   of  dirt from the ]
surface yields 25 cents.
There most be considerable truth
in the lumor of tbe rich atiike, as
prospectors are hying themselves to
the Lurdo. Cooper oreek, three miles
above Lardo, from the canyon to tne
railway traok, for half a milo haB
been staked. People around here are
awaiting patiently for tbe company to
finish the dura and make the test. If
everything turns out as first reported
the stampede tu Thunder mountain and
Cariboo will not bo in it. About 'JO
yoHrs ago Colonel Fry ot the mouth ol
Fry oresk panned out a largo 6um. A

diggings, and work was suspended.
Washington, March 31.���Secor
Concha, the Colombian minister,today
delivered to Secretary Hay a definite
protocol between tbe United States
and Colombia embodying tne terms
under which Colombia will agree to
concede the rights of way for the construction of a Panama canal. It is
understood that Cjlooibia gives un-
equallHed consent to tbe sale of the
rights of tbe new Panama Canal company, to the United States government and the consummation of its offer
of $40,000,000. It is stated that the
protocol embodies adequate and satisfactory provision for tne completion,
maintenance, operation, control and
protection of a Panama canal by this
government,
ln view of cetain allegations to the
effect that the Colombian government
was endeavoring to bargain with the
Panama Canal company for a portion
of the $40,0'I0,000 which it would receive from the United Stales It was
stated most positively today that
beyond the 500 0u0 francs in stock
which the Colombian government
holds in the oanal company, no portion of the $40,000,000 will revort to
Colombia.
It has been mado elcar that the
protoool delivered today withholds the
city of fanama from United States
sovereignty. Panama city is practically the state of PBnama, for there is
no other town of importance within
the state The administration of justice within the canal belt is provided
for in shape of mixed tribunals and
the right to pursue criminals charged
with crime committed within the
limits of the belt, to any part"of
Colombia,is bestowed. Compensation
for the oanal rights is deBired to bo in
the Bhape ot annual rental of $750,000.
Secretary Hay will give the protocol
his careful consideration and confer
with President Roosevelt in regard to
its provisions. If they ure found to be
sufficiently explicit and concrete the
convention will then be leferred to
congress.

R. Said to He Hastening Toward
Yellow head Pass.
Information was received in Nelson
yesteiday that the C. P. It. had let to
Stewart and Foley Bros, tho contract
for tho construction of 100 miles ol
railway from Moosomin, Man., in a
no,tbwesterly direction toward Piinco
Albert and Edmonton. Thero Is tbe
probability that 200 miles more of the
road will be let as soon ts the surveyors havo completed tneir notes.
It is understood that unprecedented
speed is to he nude in tho construction of this niece of line and those
acquainted with thu situation and
with the charters grunted attach more
than ordinary importance to tha letting of this contract. The surmise is
tbat the C. P. R. is looking toward
tbu Yellowhead pass and tbat between
tr.is oompany aud the Canada Northern there will be a race for that
coveted hrosk in the Rocky mountains. The Canada Northern is now
well lip to Prince Albert nnd is expected to be pressing farther tu the westward. Tbe country through whicb
these lines of railway would passj is
yet untested us to Hb capubilty for
grain production, but it is thought
that it will turn out as good a grain
producing section uh any in the northwest; the extent of it is enoimous,
and thu completion of one or both of
these lines will open for settlement a
country which promises to provo very
enticing for immigration. Several
people in Nelson will have interests
in ono way or othor with the work
that will he in progress in a very lew

BABES IN THE WOODS.
Alderman Webster Rogers in the
Phoenix Pioneer acknowldeges himself
to be the author of the resolution
parsed by the board of aldermen, of
Phoenix, requesting the government
to embark in the business of miniug
coal and making coke for the benefit
of the low grade gold and copper
mines and of the smelters of the
Boundary   country. Mr.    Webster,
among other thingB, criticises
the statement that $4 per ton just
about covers the ccst of production of
coke in a place like Fernie, where tne
cost of labor and supplies are higher
than they are in most any other place
on the continent. For instanoe, he
states that the Crow's Nest coal com
pany has paid a dividend of 10 per
cent, and says that this proves that
there is a profit in tho eoke sold by
theOo. lhe dividend was paid on
earnings made by the company before
tbe .1 rate went into effect and at a
time when coke was selling at a
higher figure than at present.
The Crow's Nest Pass Coal company
early in the present year, recognizing
that the profits of the miners had been
cut down by the low price of metals
lowered the price ui eoke to a figure
which just abont met the oost of
production. 'Ihe quantity of coke
turned ont is not large and it is
claimed wilh an increased output the
cost of making it could be lessened a
little undei the present figure, but as
conditions are at present, we reiterate
tbe assertioo that tbe present price
just about meets the cost of production. Mr. Rogers' argument in regard
to the dividend as will be seen, is
founded on conditions which did
exist, but which do not attain today,
because the company has voluntarily
cut off its profit on coke. So far as
coal is concerned the price is %2 per
ton at Fernie, and the profit is small
enough when the royalty, the cost of
miniug, cost of supplies, machinery
and everything is taken into consideration.
Mr. Rogers talks considerably about
monopoly in fuel in a country whioh
has been so magnificently dowered by
nature with coal measures as
British Columbia. A monopoly in fuel
in simply impossible. He talks as
though the Ciow's Nest Coal measures
held the only conl in tbe province
when there are others in almost every
portion of it. (In Vancouver Island
and along the coast of the mainland
there is many thousands of hoiob of
coal land. The mining of ooal and
the making of ooke is une of the lending industri-Js there. In the Similka-
raasn there are largo arcis of coal
lands, somo of wilic'i are now being
developed. Cn 0 le of the lorks of the
Kettle river about SO square miles of
coal lands bos lately been taken up.
This section is tributary to the
Bom dare country. In tho state of
Washington, which abuts against
Biit'H'i Columbia, there is coal in 14
counties, and ut some ot the mines
ooke is being made. It is certain thut
British Columbia has more coal than
any other like urea in tbe World, aud
besides thoso who iif,c fuel have the
Adjoining state of Washington to drnw
on, nnd tho monopoly of foel wliioh
Mr. Rogers nnd others talK so glibly
about is impossible.
Those establishments which are
producing fuel in tho Crow'g Nest
Pans are selling their output for less
than like prodnets oan bo bought
In any other portion of the Pacific slope. If this wore not true
how would it be possible for thorn to
hold the market ns tlio smelters of
thc section purchase their fuel where
tbey can prooure it the cheapest aud
they buy if nil from the Crow's Nest
Pass ('oal oompany, Another evidence
that tiny are telling iuel cheaply is
found in tho fact that in thc case of
thc Crow's Nest Pass Coal compnny
its  present   output  uf  coke   js tbree
times as such as a market can be
found for in Canada, and that thre��-
quarters ol it has to be disposed of in the states. Despite tbe
fact that an import duty is levied on
the coke in the United States still a
ready market ie found for it there,
even in the face of the competition of
the American product. The coal output of the same copmany is also in
excess of the lo^al demand.
Mr. Rogers says, "nnder a system
ot government ownership no dividends
would be paid to anyone, but the
wages of employes would be raised,
thu9 making business better. The
Bmelters would receive coke at lower
price, which would ooable them to
treat oro of a lower grade. Consequently,more mining propertioa would
be worked, thus increasing population
and giving stimulus to every branch of
business of tbe country. I leave it to
the judgment of the people of the
province which would be the better
policy."
Mr, Rogers is wrong for the government could not possibly sell coke
fjr less tban cost and as tbe actual
cost of production is about $4 per ton
how,could tbe government afford to
sell for less than tbis price. It would
not be just to sell for lesB than this
aud make the taxpayer pay the difference. If it would be good policy for
the government to take over the coal
mines why would it not be a wise
move to acquire all of the other inaus-
trieB, such as lumbering, farming,
eibpbuiding, the making of clothing,
flour? Why not alao have the government absorb all the groceries, drug
stores, meat markets, etc? The government might be able to carry them on
cheaper than private individuals could
and might be abie to sell cheaper
than any one else could. It wonld be
only carrying out Mr. Rogers' ideas
a little further than for tbe government to simply embark ln tbe fuel
business by mining coal and making
coke. If the theories ol Mr. Rogers
were carried out to a full and logical
conclusion the only ave-iue of preferment, cf distinction, would be by way
of the favor of the state, aa all individual effort would be stifled and of
no avail. There would be oreated
under such a system a great bureaucracy and under such a condition evils
ould grow whicb would be far
greater than at present exist. It
would be a reactionary and retrogressive movement and on tbe rock of
bureaucracy the government would
finally be shipwrecked.
We believe that there is too much of
a tendency in thiB provinpe in tbe
part of a few to call on the government for aid on every possible occasion. A good many act in this regard
as though they were helpless infants
and the government was made up of
their parents and bound to help them
whether they are right or wrong.
Parental government, liked that
seemingly desired by Mr. Rogers and
others, wbo mistakenly believe as be
doea, have been tried before and have
been found sadly wanting. Tbe
country wbich has the most self-
reliant citizens, who are able to meet
conditions as they exist and to grapple
successfully witb them, is always the
strongest and best. Happily a
majority of the people of Brtiish
Columbia aro of tbe self-reliant, self
respecting sort and are meeting the
condition which attain in a now
oountry like this in a manly and
vigorous manner and tbey do uot want
the government, either of the province
or tbe Dominion, to act as guardian
for them.
Mr. Rogers and those wbo share his
belief are fortunately hopelessly iu
the rainoriiy and that tbeir most
peculiai views regarding the functions
of government will probably never be
carried out as far as they would like
them   to   be, for  they   are   veritable
babes in the woodB" and probably
need the governmental help whicb
they often raise up their voices and
cry fur.
DKiMTY VS. HEALTH,
The people of the United States,like
tbOM of Canada and the British Isles,
are paying more attention than ever
to athletlol, Thia tendency is being
given additional momentum by the
publication of magu/ines devoted to
uihletics nnd besides the metropolitan
papers are devoting considerable
spaco to the same pnrpose. It is
pointed out in the publications that
drugs should be thrown to the dogs
nnd thnt the Health can be heat kept
and vigor longer retained by proper
exercise. President Roosevelt is b
believer In this method of keeping
himself strong and healthy, and takes
regular exercise Undei' tho direction
of u physical instructor, who visits
tho White House twice oach day. It
is said that tho president ims developed his muscles to such an extent
thnt bo ia able to occasionally put
both shoulders ot his tiainei on tho
mat when they ale indulging In a
little Graeeo-Romnn wrestling diversion. This haa brought about the adverse criticisms of somo of the older
members ol Washington political lifo,
who are stuight-luced and do not
belong to the class who fuvoi physical
culture. They consider tbat It is undignified   {or   toe   president   of    tbej

wrestle even otitn a professor of
physical culture, and Mr. Roosevelt
bas lost caste with them. He, how
ever, exulting in the increasing size of
bis biceps and the growing expansion
of his chest, can afford to laugh
merrily at the fault-finding of those
who would saoriflce health for personal dignity. Should some crack-
brained imitator of Czolgosz attack
the president and should the president
by reason of his being a trained
athlete be able to prevent the assassin
from carrying out his design then the
laugh would be on the old fogies who
object to the president taking exercise
under the direction of a professor of

ARE ALMOST EXTINCT.
The superintendent of the Rooky
Mountain Park, Banff, Alberta, re
ports that the buffalo in the park continue to thrive, and the increase bas
been most satisfactory. The herd now
numbers thirty head, being an increase in three yoars to fifteen. In
the United States, too, only a few
buffalo are left. With the exception of
a score in Yellowstone I'ark, a few
Bmall scattered herds in Montana and
one or two other western states, the
buffalo In the United States have
passed anav. Where formerly thore
were millions of these lords of the
prairies now there are probably less
than five hundred on the enliio continent, lt seems a pity that moro of
them could have have been saved.
They were slaughtered iniscrimi-

extinction.

l     MINING NEWS.     |
**************************
The Ymir Mirror says the London
and B. C. Goldfields has bonded thc
Ore Hill claim, near i<almo, and will,
it is said, work the property this
summer.
Late reports from the Ymir mine
state that the ledge encountered in
the long tunnel at a vertical depth of
1,000 feet, Hi feet wide and richer
than expeoted.
Work is proceeding on the Queen
mine, near whioh is located the
Yellowstone. The fonr carloads of ore
recently treated in the Nolson smelter
pave returns ol $r>0 lo the ton. The
tunnel on the second level has besn
driven in about Oil feet, and the showing of ore is improving.
Jay P. Graves, vice-president and
general manager of the Granby Consolidated, during his recent visit to
this city reported that by April 1st,
400 men would be employed at tho
mine and 2fi0 at the smelter, making
the total of 060, At present Very
nearly that number are employed.
On Lost creek,the leading properties
so far are the Wilson group and the
Crown, says tha Ymir Mirror. On
the former a tunnel has been run by
Charles Wilson a distance of 76 feet
on a four foot ledge of galena ore.
The Crown is a copper and silver
property, owned by Messrs. Devlin
and Ncelands of Nelaon. The vein
had been cut at 100 ieet by tunneling
ano shows sevrn per cent copper
besides high values in silver.
It looks as if there will be considerable activity in tbe vicinity of Salmo
this season, says the Ymir Mirror.
The Sagonne group recentlv bonded
by Finch and Campbell for $100,000,
will, it is rnmcred be actively worked
at once, as will also the adjoining
claims bonded by C. P. Hill for
$50,000. To work these properties suc-
essful'y a trail will have to be cut a
short distance Irom the Yellowstone
wagon road.
Supt. Harbotte has ceased operation
on the May BloBsom for the present
owing to an accumulation of snow
which renders work difficult, and has
turned his attention to the adjoining
claim���the Mav Day���which he declares to be the richer of the two.
There are two tunnels on the May
Day; one is in 40 feet and the other ;i"
feet, all is good rich ore, "rock as
rich and as green," to use ihe superintendent's own words "as if the
claim bad been located by St. Patrick
himself."���Ymir Miiror.

CHINAMAN HANGS HIMSELF.
Painted His Face to Scare Ghosts Who
Might Como For Ilia Soul.
Yestorday word was received by tho
police that a Chinaman named Chong
had committed suicide the day pre-
vous by hanging himseli in his shaok
un Cottonwood valloy. Provincial
Constable Young, accompanied by Dr.
Arthur, visited the scene of the occurrence and found the body laid out on
a bunk while a number of Chinamen
outside the door were burning paper
prayers and going through various
ceremonies doomed proper by them on
such occasions. Tbe suicide was an
elderly Chinaman, about 50 years olu,
who had been subject tr hallucinations for some time. He had a little
gaiden around the shack,but had been
driven away from his louely cabin by
three ghosts who, he said, were
haunting bim and used to come and
sit with hiin. To escapo them he came
down town and had been living in a
room in Chinatown. On Saturday
night ho was missed and on Sunday a
party of his countrymen went up to
the shack to look him up as he
frequently had threatened to make
away with himself. The cabin was a
low one, the highest part of tho ceiling being less than six ieet from tbe
tloor, with a heavy beam crossing the
centre. Apparently he had knelt on
the bunk and tied himself by the neck
tightly to this beam with a cotton
clothesline doubled. Then he had
slipped off ths bunk.
He had painted his face flrst with
a brilliant red pigment evidently
with the object of soaring the ghosts
away if they came to take his soul
away. A collection was taken up by
the Chinamen to pay for his burial.
His personal belongings outside of the
Squatter's right to the garden and
shack coiibitted of his clothes and a
couple of   packets of opium.
As I am retiring today from the
grocery business, I hereby notify all
parties owing accounts to call at the
old stand and ''cash up." I also wish
to thank my many friends for past
favors, and ask for a continuance of
same for my successors,"llell Trading

I feel l!ke writing you at once.
I am HI years old and for a great
manv year* have been a coffee
drinker. My nerves finally got into
terrible condition and fnr ahout two
yeais I suffered with sinking sp-lli
and was so nervous tbat it seemed as
though I could hardly live. I suffered
untold agonies, My heart would stop
and my kidneys gave mc no end of
trouble.
Abont six months ago I gave up
cctlee tor good and began u-ing
Postum. I insisted on knowing that
it was properly made by being
sufficiently boiled, ami I perfer a cup
of rid I'ostum to Java, Mucha, or
any other Coffee, My sinking spells
have left mc, my head gives me no
trouble new. the kidneys are greatly
Improved, and. in fait. I feel a great
change in my whole body. It is such
a comfort to be well r.gain.
I know a physician in San Antonio
who had become so nervous from the
use of coffee that his hand tierobled
so badly tbat he could not hold a
larct.or even take a splinter out, and
ennld scarcely hold anything in his
hand. Finally he quit coffee and
began using Postum. Now the
dor-tor's nervousness is gene and he is
in good health." Name given by

made by tbe ('rocers' association

I may say tbat I never said one word
to any person in Ross'and about prices
of groceries in Nelsou. and never even
thought about Nelson grocets until I
saw tne article complained oi in the

discuss my views in the press in matters of this kind I will do it over uiy
own signature.    Yours,
