THE PLAGUE. IN EGYPT.
London, April 8.���According to a
despatoh from Cairo to the Daily Mail,
the bubonic plague has reappeared in
Egypt, one case having occurred iu
Alexandria.       '
IT IS  ONLY A MILD CASE
RECENT ARRIVAL FROM PHOENIX
FOUND TO BE   SUFFERING
FROM   SMALLPOX.
SAFELY PLACED JN QUARANTINE
SO IS LITTLE   DANGER TO
COMMUNITY.
A mild case of smallpox was discovered In the city yesterday and
promptly isolated. The patient is
John. Bertram, a man who was quarantined at the Old Ironsides bunk-
house in the Phoenix camp for some
time. He arrived in the city on Saturday night with a clean bill of
health from the medical health officer
of Phoenix. On Sunday he did not
feel well and on Monday morning
his condition had not improved.
Bertram is a miner uf -more than
average intelligence and suspected
that he might have contracted smallpox. Cn coming to this, conclusion
he went to the offices of Doctors Hall
and Rose and told them of his suspicions. The physicians examined Bertram and pronounced his ailment to
be smallpox In a very mild form. Dr.
LaBau was notified of the case and
corroborated the diagnosis. He sent
Bertram to the old pest house on tbe
city park grounds beyond Cottonwood gulch, a mile from the city,
and had the furniture stolen by the
Chinamen residing in the section replaced in order that the patient
might be comfortable. Clayton, the
young man who wail in the institution lu -1900 aS a patient, was placed
ill charge as nurse. Bertram was able
to walk to the isolation hospital and
was about the place all day. IIu has
been successfully vaccinated on three
occasions, the last being a year ago.
This makes his case unusually mild
aud it is hardly likely that he is in
any'danger. Moreover, Bertram's
promptitude in reporting himself to
the physicians-was praiseworthy, as
the! case had not developed to the
stage where the danger of infection
arises and the likelihood of others
who had come in contact with liim
taking! the disease is not regarded as
serious.' The physician's offices were
immediately disinfected and the house
where Bertram'slept after reaching
the city was also fumigated.
The medical health officers arc disposed to criticize the actions of the
provincial health authorities in
regard to the situation at Phoenix
in the severest terms. The charge is
Made that the provincial authorities
were influenced by the mining companies interested to raise the quarantine at Phoeni x before the dangerous
preiod had passed; and in support of
tbe oharge the fact is instanced that
within a day or two of tbe raising of
the quarantine three cases were discovered at Phoenix, and that others,
such as the Bertram cam, are likely
to be moving through the country.
The local authorities have spent a
considerable sum of money in establishing quarantine regulations and
while these have proved irksome in
some respects, the result has been
that that disease has been kept out
of the city. Through the action of
the provincial authorities, however, a
man is allowed to come into the city
with a clean bill ot health, whereas he
is at the time the certificate was given bim undoubtedly in tbe early stage
of the disease Had not Bertram
been ail unusually decent fellow his
plight might bave gone unnoticed until incalculable trouble was caused.
Apparently the eity has a first-class
kick coming.
CARS DASH
INTO LAKE
The C.P.R. Sustained a Very
Heavy Loss Yesterday
Morning.
Loaded Barge Sprung Aleak
and Couldn't Be Beached
In Time.
The C. P. R. sustained a heavy loss
yesterday morning through the , loss
or partial loss of a fifteen-car bargei
loaded with "0. C. S." coal and:
coke. The accident occurred in the
main lake an hour and a half's sail
out of Kootenay Landing. The new
tug Valhalla was bringing the big
barge into the city when tbe tow
sprang a leak. The tug headed for
the shore in an attempt to beach the
barge before it sank, but the -statement is made that the erafVwent
down by the head to such a degree
that seven ears went over the end and
wero.completely lost. The barge with
the lemainder of her load was brought
almost to the shore where it is now
submerged. It is riot known whether
the remainder of the catgo and the
barge can be raised, but an effort
will be made to accomplish this in
ordei to avoid the heavy loss mother*
wise inevitable.
A peculiar accident occurred this
morning at the depot. Locomotive
No. 35, which is used on the passenger run between Nelson and Robson,
was standing in the roundhouse and
was being 'fired up for her regular
trip. Suddenly the .ngine made! a
bolt and' before the roundhouse men
realized what had happened the
heavy locomotive plunged into the
turntable pit, running her entire
length into tbe stonewalled pit and
leaving tbe tender on the rails. It is
supposed that the throttle became
opened in some manner, The engine
was taken out of the hole during the
day by means of jacks.

FRESHETS IN NEW ENGLAND.
Likelihood That Record of Flood of
189U Will Be Repeated.
Boston, Mass., April 8.���The freshet
conditions in the various rivers of
New England resulting from the copious rains of the past week or more
did not improve today. The tivors
continued to rise and indications at
nearly all points were that the record
of the flood of 1800 would be repeated,
if not surpassed. The absence of ice,
which went out last week from many
of the rivers, thus far has prevented
serious damage to property, but today
thousands of mill operatives were
compellod to stop work as factories
could not be operated on account of
high water. Railroads and highways
suffered from washouts.
WHICH WAS FORGED?
New York, April 8.���The two wills

ROSSLAND
STRIKE OFF
Miners' Union Turned Proposition Down by Twelve
Votes.
Officers of tlie Union Said to
Be Disgruntled at the
Outcome.
Rossland, April 8,���The Rossland
Miners' Union today balloted on the
question as to whether a strike should
be inaugurated to sustain the muckers in their demand for an advance of
from $2.50 to S3 in tbe pay per day
and aj to whether certain other grievances should be remedied on penalty
of a walk-out. When the balloting
was concluded last evening it was
found the vote stood 1. short of the
number required for a three-quarters
majority, the number necessary for
the striate,-and this, of course, means
that there will be no strike.
The officers of the union are much
disgruntled over the. result. They
claim a riumber of grievances and the
ehief of these is the violation ot the
agreement entered into last year ii:
whicli it is claimed the mine managers
promised to allow tbe officers of the
union the privilege of soliciting members from among non-union miners.
It is alleged that this - agreement has
been broken by refusing tbe walking
delegates access- V) the mines.: ��� ���
They also object to the system of
espionage which exists in some of tht
mines and object to being spied on by
detectives of an al ion agency..,
They also object, thoy say., to the
attempted di-rnptirm of the -union.by
the frequent discharging of nnion
men on various pretexts and also to
the importation of alien labor. On
the other hand the bosses allege that
if the strike had been organized that
they would have closed down the mines
and lowered -the wages to 83 for machine men and to S3 for muckers
against $3.50 and 82. so, the present
wages.
STAR CLOSED   DOWN.
Rossland Property Suspends Operations Until Shipping is Possible.
Rossland, B.C., April 8.���The Evening Star yesterday closed down on account of the condition of the roads
and the likelihood of not being able
to ship for the next 60 or 00 days.
The following dispatch was received
from Spokane directing that the mine
be shut down:
"At a meeting of the directors held
here tonight, it was resolved to shut
down the Evening Star mine for the
present. (Sgd). Geo. B. McAnley,
managing director."
Mr. Chamberlain, who has been in
charge of the work on the Evening
Star since November 29, 1899, when
operations were resumed on the property, by the reorganization of the company, Stated last evening that the
last shipments made showed that
the ore ran 830 to the ton in gold.
There is a good showing of ore in the
mine on .the. third level and elsewhere. .Two assessments of one-half
cent each have been levied and the
shares are still assessable to the ex-
lent of a cent. It was thought best
to close down tho mine instead of
levying another assensmont and as tbe
roads will not be . in good: condition
for two or perhaps three months, it
was deemed expedient to cease opera
tions for that. period. When operations are resumed there is ore enough
in sight an the third level and in
other places which can be taken out
and used for the running expenses.
The property has -been developed down
to thei 400 foot level, nnd is in a much
better condition than when the new
company took hold of it.
JAPAN'S LITTLE HAMMER.
Dealt a Severe Blow to Russia's Prestige in China.
London, April 0.���In a despatch to
the Times from Pekin, dated Sunday,
Dr. Morrison comments upon tbe
blow to Russian prestige in China resulting from the chock to Russian ambitions regarding Manchuria. Tbis
blow is all the more serious, he says,
because Japan, whom the Russians
have, affected to treat with the utmost
contempt, has   had the   largest   share
in dealing it.
There is little doubt that Russia
will renew the struggle in some other
shape. It Is a remarkable outburst of
popular feeling which has thus enabled China to_withBtand Russia. All
the appeals against the convention
concerning Manchuria were addressed
to the emperor. It is therefore difficult to believe that tho empress dowager has not been affected by tbe defeat of thejpolicy of which her henchman, Li Hung Chang, is the sturdiest
exponent.
ENGLISH PUBLISHER DEAD.
London, April 8.���The death of Sir
George Murray Smith, the well known
English publisher, was announced
here today. Sir George was a mem-
bcr'of the Ann of Smith, Elder A Co.,
and published some of the lirst editions of the works o _ WiUi-fti- Makepeace Thackeray. He founded the
Cornhiii m_g_-iue in 18(.���.
TO BEGIN THE POSTOFFICE
TnE FIRST STEP   TOWARDS CON
STRUCTION   TO BE TAKEN
THIS   WEEK.
CONTRACT    HAS    BEEN     CLOSED
FOR THE EXCAVATING AND
FOUNDATIONS.
The first step towards the construction of the new postofiice in Nelson
will be taken this week. Charles Lc-
Moine, of Ottawa, a member of the
firm of contractors, LeMoine A
Viau, who secured the contract for
the building from the department of
public works arrived in the city on
Sunday and registered at the Queen's
hotel. Mr. LeMoine will be in the
city until Friday. He seems to be
decidedly enterprising, for after being
here less than 36 hours he had closed
a. contract-with Shae-leton brother*
for the excavating and foundations.
The work amounts to some 83,000
and is to be commenced at once.
Mr. LeMoine stated to a representative of Tbe Miner last night that the
building would be pushed abead us
rapidly as possible. His estimate of
the time which will be required to
complete construction is twelve
months. The contract price for the
work was 850,000 and Mr. LeMoine
believes that it will not cost over 865,-
000. The men required on the building will be hired right here in Nelson, despite rumors to the contrary.
Mr. LeMoine states that there is an
abundance of skilled labor available
und that in any event the cost of
bringing men from the east would be
so great as to make the proposition
impracticable.
After seeing the excavating under
way Mr. LeMoine will leave for tho
capital,where the firm has other work
in hand. He will return in June next
and remain here several months. Mr.
Viau, the other member of the firm, is
not likely to be in Nelson, his tune being devoted to the firm's enterprises
in the caBt. On the completion of the
foundations the question of erecting
the cut stone portion of tbe walls will
be taken up. It has not yet been decided where the supply of cut stone
will be secured, several first class
qualities from various quarries in the
district being available for the purpose .
BIG FIRE AT OTTAWA.
Theatre on   Fire   and   Crowded Hotel
Threatened.
(SPECIAL TO Til- Mi-Bit.)
Ottawa, April 9.���The Russell theatre is on fire and the Russell hotel
with 300 guests is threatened. The
fire burst out witli alurming fierceness
at 1:40 this morning. "The Belle of
New York" company played there
tonight and had just got all their
stuff out. It depends on lllf fire brigade if the adjoining [hotel will be
suved.

Peklu, April 8.���According to expert opinion, China will be able to
pay from ��20,000,000 to ��30,000,000
sterling without crippling hor financial resources, while the amounts
whioh the powers ut present demand
aggregate from ��80,000,000 to_ i'loo,-

MR. HILL'S
NEW PLAN
Alms at  Placing Big U.S.
Railroads Under One
Management.
Proposed   Corporation   Has
Been Styled New Transcontinental System.
New York, April 8.���The Mail and
Express says: "From people .close to
Messrs. .lames J. Hill and J. I'lerpont
Morgan, it was learned today that
there is ground for the story that a
now eusporutloa is Ucing considered
for the purpose of carrying a controlling interest in the stocks of the large
railway companies which some have
styled the New Transcontinental
system.
This new corporation, II formed,
would hold shares of the Northern
Pacific, Burlington A Erie and possibly the St. Paul and Great Northern.
It is not settled whether the debentures of the new company would be
issued against the underlying securities, but this is considered likely.
This is the method pursued because
of the Railway Securities company,
which was organized by the Harri-
man people, for the purpose of handling the Illinois Central.
In connection with a plan to change
the charter of the St. Paul road,. Bo as
to permit a majority of the stock,
instead of two thirds, to Increase the
capita!, soma new points of interest
were brought out. It was alleged in
the application that James J. Hill
and associates had made a traffic deal
between tbe Northern Pacific and
Burlington, which diverted a large
amount of business to the .Burlington
which formerly went over the St. Paul
road ; and it was alleged that unusual
discrimination is being practiced under tbe new regime against the St.
Paul company. It is claimed that
Mr. Hill and bis associates. bave a
large block of St. Paul stock and seek
to coutrol it.

THE GUGGENHEIM DEAL.
American Smelter Trust Enjoined
From   Completing the Deal.
New York, April 8.���Justice Dixon
at Trenton, N. J., today died the
opinion of the court of errors and appeals iq the case brought by minority
stockholders of the American Smelting and Refining company to enjoin
the purchase of the property of M.
Guggenheim A Sons. This opinion
has been awaited with great interest
by corporation lawyers as It in considered most important as affecting
corporations in New Jersey. The importance of the opinion is in the construction placed by the court of forty-
eighth and forty-ninth sections of
the general corporations' act. Vice-
Chancellor Stevens, one of the moat
learned lawyers of the state held that
tbe court could not go beyond the decision of the boord of directors as to
the value of the property to bo purchased by tho issuing of stocks. The
court of error on the contrary holds
that it must be clearly shown that
the value of such property is at least
reasonably near the price to be paid
and that the action of the directors is
subject to review at the Instance of
any stockholder who considers himself
aggrieved.
The court orders that tlie stay be
continued, enjoining the purchase,
and that proceedings to increase stock
should likewise remain in statu quo
pending final argument and a decision
by the court of chancery as to the real
value of the Guggenheim property.

CAPTAIN FIT/STL'BBS.
The retirement from official life of
Captain Fitzstubbs seems to demand a
special reference, in view of his long
official service in the province���extending over a period of thirty years
���and of the high esteem in which he
is held in this community. In un
age when the holding of official positions is so frequently used by the incumbent as a stepping stone to self-
aggrandizement, it is refreshing to
point to one who has, in his official
life, had the single eye to duty, and
the weal of the country; this in a
marked degree, applies to the official
under comment; and perhaps the greatest tribute that can be paid to his
integrity is that after so many years
of hiB manhood devoted to public life
he leaves office comparatively, if not
altogether, a poor man. To a man of
high character, and best instincts,
wealth is not all; nor is it the leading motive of life. To follow the
Btraight path of duty a/id to diverge
: not therefrom, even while self-interest would suggest such a deviation
requires a moral force of character
possessed but by few, but which is universally accorded to Captain Fitzstubbs. When government agent���
which position he held for many
years���many opportunities were
offered him to obtain pecuniary advantages were he to have diverted
government appropriations from what
he considered the general interest of
the conntry demanded; but it is on
record that no regard of personal advantages to him were allowed to stand
io the way of the expenditure of the
government funds apart from the
manner in which he considered the
best interests of the country. A gentleman by birth, education and eaily
associations, he has a personality
peculiarly his own and while urbane
and courteous to all, be yet carries
with him a special reserve of manner,
which prevents him from being what
Is considered a popular man; but the
marked appreciation and respect
which universally attaches to him in
his public career, are intensified by
the semi-exelusivenesB of his nature.
Many a one in positions such as he
occupied, could have gained popular
ity by a familiarity with all classes
or by a convivial turn which goes bo
far towards making casual friendship in mining camps; but Captain
Fitzstubbs owes the esteem in which
be is held by every class to no such
aids as these; and when saying this
we pay the highest tribute that we
can utter to the sterling worth of the
man. It is a matter of much regiet
to all who know Captain Fitzstubbs
that his state of health is very poor
and all trust that the declining years
of his life may be spent in comfort
able retirement; and sweetened by
the happy memories of having done
his full duty in bis several official
capacities in which he has served his
country. At the last session of the
legislature, a superannuation allowance was voted Captain Fitzstubbs
The amount seems too small in view of
the length of service und age of the
beneficiary. We trust the government
may see their way clear to increase
the amount to such sum as will enable this old, well tried and faithful official to spend his remaining
days without worrying himself with
financial cares as to how he shall keep
the "wolf from the door." We will
say no more on this point than that
any liberality shown by the govern
ment in this connection will meet
with warm appreciation.
grading to the professional man who
permits himself to descend to it. It
is a matter for surprise that the pernicious measure lias received the support already accorded it in the house,
us there can be no doubt whatever
that the placing of such an act on the
statute books is likely to have serious
and possibly disastrous results on
the mining industry. The Vancouver
New-Advertiser very properly sounds
a note of warning. It says there Is
uo question that the conditions under
which prospectors nnd miners work
���owing to the natural characteristics
of the country���present peculiarly
favorable oppoi tunnies for the legal
pettifogger and his accomplice to utilise advantageously the privileges
which tlie passage of the bill will confer on the legal profession.
An English gentleman���a mining
engineer connsctcd with a number of
important mining companies in this
province���says that the news of such
an net being passed will affect most
unfavorably the attitude of many
British capitalists to mining investments in British Columbia. The
greater certainty prevailing here���as
compared with the situation in ^the
United States���in respect to the titles
to mineral claims, has been regarded
as something to set oft* against other
disadvantages. Now, if they are likely to find themselves in constant litigation with unscrupulous adventurers,
aided by the least reputable or honorable of the legal profession, the engineer says, many investors will decline to take any chances and invest
their money elsewhere.5 We have been
greatly surprised at the reason given
by one well-known lawyer in the leg
islature, when asked how he came to
vote for the Champerty bill. He said
that he knew that some members of
the profession acted contrary to the
law at the present time and thereby
got business to his detriment. So he
desired to have champerty legalised to
put him on the same footing as hi
dishonest rival. A lawyer able thus
easily to quiet his conscience is no
better than a grocer would be who
desired to be allowed to put sand in
his sugar because he believed that
his rival around the corner did so.
There )6 yet time for the legislature
to reconsider its decision and rescind
it at a later stage of the bill's passage tbrough the house.
great good of the province. Mr. Turner, the agent general, haB more than
oidinarv capacity, and is gifted with
just that character and those qualities which should make the time
which he spends in London a source
of valut and profit to the province.
It is ipulpabl'i tbat Messrs. Turner
und Gosnell will make a stiong team
and as they have been long associated
with each other, nnd as each' has an
admiration for tbe other, they will
pull well together while they are in
London.���Rossland Miner.

The constant cry for railway competition which comes from the
Boundary country has' often raised
the question of why tlieie is such a
pressing need for such competition.
This, to those who have Investigated, is an easily answered question.
The Boundary must have a competing railway because the ores of this
Section, while occurring in vast bod*
ies, some of tbem of a size almost inconceivable, are generally of such low-
grade as to make their profitable
treatment a serious problem under
the most favorable conditions. Tlie
question of cheap smelting has been
grandly solved but wbat is tlie advantage in having a cheap smelter
treatment if the freight charges to
get the ore to the plant eat up its total values?���Grand Forks" Gazette.
THE CHAMPERTY BILL.
Too little attention seems to have
been paid, both in the house and in
the country, to the bill introduced by
Mr. Martin to legalize the practice
of champerty. It has already passed
the second reading, and will become
law unless a strong protest is entered
against it. The Miner is of the opinion that tbat protest ought to be made
at once. A little thought will convince anyone that the measure is
fraught with grave danger to the
mining  Interests    of   this   province.
The immigration to Manitoba this
season promises to break all previous
records. No leas than five, special
trains with settlers and effects from
Ontario arrived at Winnipeg on Saturday last;	
The complaints which are being
made regarding the manner in which
the quarantine regulations are being
enforced seem to call for immediate
action on the part of those competent
to provide a remedy.
The Grand Forks Gazette has published a very excellent special illustrated number devoted to showing
some of the resources of the Boundary
country and the advantages of Grand
Forks. It is a very creditable num
ber indeed.
Premier Roblln has withdrawn his
libel suit aguinst the Winnipeg Free
Press. What promised to be a very
sensational case is thus settled out of
court and the public robbed of an op
portunity to revel in the delight of
witnessing   interesting "disclosures.
Emperor William's recent astounding utterances have had the effect of
reviving the rumors that his mind is
affected. Reading some of his remark
able speeches, it is difficult to refrain
from accepting the theory that something is wrong with the Kaiser's intellect.

THE AGENT   GENERAL'S   OFFICE,
The decision of the local government
to oper the office of agent -general of
the province in London, England
without delay is a commendable one,
and it is a mattei of general hope
that the work which it is to carry on
will be prosecuted in an active and
enterprieing spirit. This office, the
duties of which if properly discharg
ed by the man who is placed at the
head of it, will, no doubt, be of great
benefit to the province and ought to
turn the attention of capital to our
mining district here iu a manner even
more prnouonced than hitherto. Ac
cording to a despatch Mr. R. E. Gas
nell is to go to London at once for the
purpose of opening the office and pre
paring the way for Mr. Turner. No
better selection could have been made
for this duty than Mr. Gosnell. He
understands the country and believes
in It. He is a man of ability and a
bard worker, and will perform the
duties of tho office well and conscientiously Mr. Gosnell, perhaps, has as
complete a knowledge ot the various
resources of this province as any man
in it, as he has given them the closest study for mnay years, and may,
therefore be termed a specialist in
this Jmatter. For this reason he
should, and we believe he will, be
able to impart a knowledge with
which he may be said to be fairly
saturated, of the province to those
with whom he may come   in   contact

A cheap remedy for coughs and colds
is all right, but you want something

QUESTION ANSWERED.
Yes, August Flower still bas the largest sale of any medicine in the civilized world. Your mothers and grandmothers never thought of using any
thing else for Indigestion or Biliousness. Doctors were scarce, and they
seldom heard of Appendicitis, Nervous
Prostration or Heart fa-'ure, etc.
They used August Flower to clean out
the 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.

MAIUTIM8
Statement     That    Big   Four   Co.   of
Rossland Will Erect One.
The Spokane Review of yesterday
has the following:
���'We shall begin the erection of a
smelter on the property of the Big
Four Consolidated Mining Company
at Kossland two months from now. I
am on my way to Edinburgh now to
arrange with Scottish capitalists for
its construction."
So said James Lanier, owner and
manager of the Big Four group of
claims, who reached Spokane
night on the Spokane Falls at
erll He leaves this morning
Northern Pacific for the old country
via New York. He states that owing
to developments in the mining situation at the Big Four it has been found
necessary for the properties to have a
smelter ot their own, and that construction will be begun immediately
on bis return from Edinburgh.
"British.Columbia and Washington
smelters are closed to me," said Mr
Lawler last night. "Northport has
announced that it will be unable to
handle ore for some time on account,
of the great supply already on hand.
The.outlot.to the_Trail smelter is inaccessible, and for a property like ours
there is but one resource left-build a
smelter of our own. That wo shall
do. I expect to have all arrangements completed soon after my arrival in Scotland.'.! Four streams run
through our land. One is from the 0.
K. and I. X.] U, another. Is fcoffl
lJecT"lJar_"mouutain, the third is from
the head of Trail creek and the last
is Little Sheep creek. It gives a situation unsurpassed. The capacity of
the plant will he over 500 tons a day..

cHily"not"foFs_Te7 We are down 400
feet. On the No. 2 claim the ore vein
is 22 feet wide and solid with a 10x10
station. This showing has induced
us to refuse all offers and get the
group in working shape at all costs.
For this reason the decision has been
made  for Bmelter construction "j_i____,
FELL FROM A WINDOW.
What Happena In ��h�� Conr��ry Vkn
tbe Letters Arrive.
Did you ever see tho mail arrive?
The row of unkempt hones gnawing
the hitching rack before Wise's store
and impatiently kicking at disturbing
flies testifies to the fact that the mail is
due to arrive.
The slouching groups of jean clad beings, the unwonted activity and importance of the stiff haired station agent
and the expectant alertness of the young
and sunbouneted persons In the farm
wagon all add to the impression.
The station Is much the same as other
stations. Its knife scarred walls are decorated with campaign lithographs, legal
notices aud advertisements of navy tobacco.
A platform of sun warped planks extends around two sides, beginning at two
steps and a soap box and terminating at
the usual "jumping off" place.
Upon the platform a lean cur is slowly
baking in the midday Bun, stretched at
full length.
The agent, as Ib patent to all observers,
possesses leather suspenders and a thorough nnd complete acquaintance with every man, woman, child and dog in Gil- :
nier county.
"Yonder she comes!" |
The blacksmith across the road leaves
a half shod mule and comes to the door
of his dingy shop, wiping his grimy
hands upon the sides of his leather apron;
the young women in the muddy wagon
remove their sunbonnets and smooth rebellious wisps of hair, giggling with ex-
citenieut.
The loafers jump from platform and
barrels, close their pocketknives aud
strain their eyes down the track.
A rapidly approaching column of
smoke is seen around the curve back of
Henderson's woods; a Bmall boy, far
down the dusty pike, leans over the dash
of his rattling wagon and belabors his
gaunt horse with a stick.
Two short, metallic Bhrleks, the clangor of a bell, and the fast mail whi.zea
past with a Jarring rumble of wheels, a
streak of varnished woodwork and glittering glass and metal, leaving behind it
a dust filled vacuum.
The blinking countrymen, holding fast
to hats, gaze after its quivering rear platform with awe.
The brass bound mail pouch hurtles
through the air, skates along the cinders
beside the track and brings up against
the red cattle shoot, where it is pounced
upon hy three small boys.
With it the agent plows across the
dusty road, followed by the crowd; the
cling cliuk of the blacksmith ia resumed,
and one's impression of the station resolves itself into a vista of shimmering
heat waves, whitewash and gleaming
rails and hot yellow dust.
Thu mail has come.���Chicago Record.

A Well   Known   Mining   Man
Injured at Portland.
John 0. MeOuigan, a pioneer of the
Slocan   countrv, is lying  in   a   Portland, Ore., hospital suffering from the
effects   of   a   terrible   accident.    Mr.
McGnigan was   sitting   on a   window
sill on the fourth floor of the Imperial
hotel when he  lost   his   balance  and
fell 80 feet to a skylight beneath.    He
sustained a fracture of the skull,   but
it is thought that unless some unforeseen complication   ensues   he will recover.   Thomas McUuigan.mannger of
the   American   Boy mine   at   Sandon
and a brother of the injured man is in
Nelson today.    Ho was advised yesterday that his brother's  injuries, while
serious, were by no means necessarily
fatal.     John U. MoGulgan wus one of
the   discoverers   of  the   Slocan.   The
first piece of silver float found in   the
district was picked up by   John   Sea-
ton, who, with Eli Carpenter, located
the Payne the same day, early in July
1891.    Willlum M.    llennessy   learned
of  the   find,   and  with   his  brother
John, Frank Flint,   John   McGuigan,
Heaton and Carpenter,   he went  from
Ainswortb into the new camp  nnd   28
claims   were   slaked.    Among     these
were   the   Noble   Five   group,     Last
Chance, R. E. Lee, Northern Hello and
Slocan Boy.
MoOuigan took a conspicuous pint
in the development of several of these
properties and ninny others, later
prominent among the producers of the
district. It ��us after Jack Mctiiiigiin
that the town and creek of MoQulgan,
between Sandon und Kaslo, were
named.
About a year uud a half ago Mctlui-
gan went Into the Bumpter district
(Oregon) und secured possession of the
Alamo, near the town of Alaniu. He
developed this well known gold property and incorporated It in   Spokane.
fie is still  superintendent   of  tins
mlno and tho principul stockholder.
His brother, Thomas Mclliiigan, is
also closely identified with the curly
history of the Slocan. He located the
American Hoy and hus beun in charge
of itB development from the lirst. Ik
is still superintendent and a large
stockholder.
The Wrong Gla.a.
"Some years ago," Bald a man, "when
the book 'As In a Looking Glass' was th* i
rage,    there    was   considerable    outcry j
against the work on the score that It I
was immoral.   This led my friend's wife ,
to instruct her spouse on no account to
read  the   work.    He,  as  was  natural, j
rushed down town straightway and purchased the forbidden volume.   At dinner
that night he Baid:
" 'Well, Sally, 1 don't see why yon
didu't want me to read that "Looking
Glass" book, for, although I've read
through every page, I must say I
couldn't find anything out of the way
with it,' aud he produced the book he
had purchased, which turned out to be
Lewis Carroll's 'Through the Looking
Glass, and What Alice Found There.'"
"I can match that story In kind," Bald
his friend, "for 1 remember about the
same time a small niece of mine went
to church, and on being asked the text
on her return home, said it had been 'As
In a Looking Glass'! Subsequent inquiry showed the actual text given out
was: 'For now we see through a glass,
darkly; but then face to face.'���I Cor.
xiii, 12."

When Golnc to Bed.
No matter how busy one may be it Is
quite possible always to attend to one's
toilet at night. One should not simply
drop her clotheB and tumble into bed, else
neither oneself nor the clothes will look
attractive In the morning. Have plenty
of hot water and a dash of eau de cologne
and give your face a thorough laving.
The result will be as refreshing as an
hour's Bleep. Brush the hair for 20 minutes. It will be glossier and thicker for
the trouble, and your nerves will be
Boothed by tbe process. Then, after
the exerciso, robe yourself in a warm
dressing gown nnd drink a glass of hot

SimIa Water For Ilanirer.
Doctors lire using carbonic water (plain
soda water) to relieve hunger In the cases
of pulleuls to whom food cannot be given. The carbonic acid gns lessens the
Beuse of hunger, not because it haH any
Biistnining qualities, but because It presses on the solar plexus, nnd the solar
plexus, besides being useful when one fellow wants to knock out nnnthor fellow
man, is tho seat of hunger. The House of
gnawing and "goneness" and of ravenous hunger arises from irritation la
this part of the body, nnd the carbonic
acid gas often cheeks tbe symptoms nb-
snliili-ly. Of course the remedy Is useful only where the sense of hunger Is
due more to nrtlficlal Irritation than to
actual want of food, In the latter case
sodn water would prove decidedly useless. Beefsteak still holds the fort for
that ailment known as appetite.

COMMUNICATIONS
To the Editor:
A great deal of dissatisfaction has
been expressed during the past week
or two at the very tardy manner In
which the Nelson quarantine ofUcers
perform their duties. Boats and
trains containing large numbers of
passengers have been kept waiting,
pending the arrival of the inspecting
physician who is paid 85 for each
boat and train he meets and w.bo is
supposed to be on hand at the pro-"
per time.
. On_Siinday afternoon, for instance,
the steamer Moyie arrived at the
city dock at 3:55 o'clock. A police
olllcer was there to prevent the people
leaving the boat, and after he bad left
his instructions he started up town
to find Dr. Symonds, who should
have been at the dock at the time of
the arrival of the hoat. About thirty
minutes later the officer returned
with the information that Dr. Sy
nioiids would be down after a while
���not very cheering news for those
aboard the hoat, who were anxious
to get off and get up town. At 4:50
o'clock, fifty-five minutes after the
boat had arrived, tbe doctor bad not
yet put in an appearance, but Chief
Jarvis came down In his place. Those
who had certificates of vaccination
or whose tickets showed that they
had come straight through from
points not affected with smallpox,
were allowed to go. The balance were
taken over to the C. P. R. dock, this
delay being for the purpose of allowing the doctor plenty of time to
reach the boat. But the doctor did
not visit the boat even then. Chief
Jarvis did what inspecting was necessary. But the city will probably pay
85 to the man who should have met
the boat.
Another instance of the careless,
manner in which these matters are
handled occurred Friday or Saturday
night. Tbe train from Robson was
held up at the depot, the car doors
being locked to prevent any one escaping. For forty minutes the impatient passengers, waited and then the
dootoi telephoned down to let them
all go. There might have been
twenty smallpox suspects among
them. ~*
There iB another thing, too, in connection with the arrival of - the boats
which shows what a farce all these
quarantine regulations are. When
the doctor does meet the boat and refuses to allow certain of the passengers to land, they can remain on the
boat until it reaches the C. P. R. dock
and then walk off unmolested by anyone. There is usually no officer or
anyone to prevent them leaving at
tbat point.
The incidents mentioned above are
but two of many. If the quarantine
Is to remain it should- be strictly enforced. If this is uot done it should
be raised.

CLEVER CHILDREN���
The children of the Methodist
church gave an excellent entertainment at the church last night, entitled "Easter Day," a cantata illustrating the resurrection of Christ.
The audience ciowded the church to
the doors. The entertainment was
gratifying success. The fact was
demonstrated that the children of the
church possess talent above the aver
age and that the ladies and gentlemen
who had trained the little ones had
exercised great pains in the preparation of the production. The large
audience was a gratifying compliment
to Conductor Irwin and his assistants.
TO CURE THE GRIP IN TWO DAYS

THE MINSTREL   SHOW.
The Annual Entertainment Tonight
Promises To Be Very Enjoyable.
The Nelson Minstrels annual entertainment tonight promises to be quite
up to the standard of previous years.
Last night the final rehearsal took
place and the show went off without
a hitch. The opening part is particularly strong. The membei'8 of the
company are neatly attired in white
costumes, with the exception of the
end men. The interlocutor, Judge
Thompson, promises to make a hit in
his capacity. The curtain rises after
a few bars of the opening chorus, and
reveals a pretty tableau whicli must
be seen to be appreciated Manager
Charlie Honeyman opens with a clever coon song in which the company
joins with good effect. He is followed
by William Martin in a bass solo
that merits a recall. "Willie" Fisher
is next with, a topical spng, "When
Reuben Comes to Town," and not only
sings the song well, but makes a hit
with his stage business. Charlie
Prosser follows in a sentimental air
the chorus of which is sung in quartette. "Ole Bill" Ross is then introduced in a coon song with a rattling
chorus. W. J. Caldwell contributes a
bass solo in good form and is followed by ".limmi.e" Worth in a clever
song. Charles Benedict winds.up the
solos in n dainty little sentimental
song with a fetching chorus. A lively
tabldau sees the curtain down and the
second part is a clever farce in which
eight or nine of the company take
part. The first part is replete with
up-to-date "gags."
