Londjn, Feb. 20.���A message to the
Exchange Telegraph Co., from Barcelona, via Perpignan, France, says a
tierce batile has been fought between
the troops and the rioters in tho suburbs of Barcelona, known as Sane.
Befoie the engagement the cavalry
and infantry bad beon poEed in the
most dangerous points and a field
battery had been located in the plaza
from which vantage point the guns
could sweop the surrounding streets.
When the final clash with the troops
occurred tho artillery was brought
into action and raked the streets. The
noteis engaged the batfries at does
range, bnt were finally driven off. It
is reported tbat 500 peisons were killed and wounded on both sides. The
near neighborhood was wrecked by
the Hindis The ruins caught fire and
this completed lhe destruction.
Further fighting is reported at
Mataro (16 miles from Barcelona)
where a quantity oi arms have been
discovered. Fighting is also reported
at Tortosa and Tarragona, respectively, 100 aud 50 miles southwest of
Two Factories Burned and Railway
Tracks Torn Up.
Madrid, Feb. 20.���According to telegrams received here late tonight from
Barcelona, the street fighting continues. The heavy rain which fell
during the day helped to disperse the
rioters and tho authoiilies are taking
severe measures. A proclamation has
been issued ordering all private individuals to surrender any weapons they
may possess under pain of severe
penalties. The sale of arms has also
been prohibited. Forty workmen's
associations have been dissolved and
the members of their committees arrested. The dwellings of the strike
leaders aud anarchists are being registered and put under guard.
Tho battleship Pelayo has been
ordered to Barcelona. The military
engineers have assumed control of the
Btreet car service and a few cars half
filled with soldiers are running. Even
the funeral coaches have tu be protected by the police. Wo letters have
been delivered in Barcelona in three
days and in some distant parts of the
town business is completely para
A pitched battle occurred in tho
outskirts of the city between the
strikers and the military escort attached to several wagons that were
bringing in provisions. Ihe contents
of the wagons wero dragged out and
barricades were built across the roads.
The rails have been torn up to prevent
trains from entering the oity.
The strike movement has begun to
spread seriously. At Castellene de la
Plans, taking advantage of the night
and the absence of the police, the
strikers burned two factories. At a
workmen's meeting held at Castellene
del a Plana a general strike was
voted. At Saragossa most of the factories have already closed down and
most of the workingmen stiikers are
bringing pressure to bear to compel
the factories still remaining open to
close their doors. The captain-general
of Saragossa lias wired for reinforcements.
A strike commenced at Valenoia,
hut owing to the refusal of the dock
laborers to participate, it did not become general. The police at Valencia,
assisted by the troops, have up to the
present time been able to maintain
order there.
There has been a strike on at Barcelona for several days past. There is
no particular reason lor thc Btrike
except tbat the working daises are
against existing social conditions and
the influence of the clergy.
It is estimated that 80,000 men and
women are on strike. Thousands of
malcontents line the downtown streets
of the city and attack savagely those

Viotoria, Feb 20.���The third session
of the eigh h parliament of British

by Lieut.-Go'ernor Joli in tbe presence of an immense crowd of people.
It was a beautiful day, as mild as

Royal Highnesses, the Duke and
Duchess of Cornwall and York. Tho
warm welcome and loyal enthusiasm

Royal Highesses was to me exceed
ingly gratiiying.

Canada bave been officially asked to

duty to convey to His Excellency, on
behalf of my first minister, an acceptance of the invitation.
It is to be regretted that tbe war in
South Africa unavoidably still continues. There is, however, every indication of hostilities being brought to a
satisfactory conclusion at an early
date, when an opportunity will be
offered to the citizens of this province
bearing arms there to return to their
In view of the unfavorable conditions which affected the mining
industry during 1901, it is especially
gratifying to know that the coutput of
the mines considerably exceeded that
of any previous twolvo months, and
that the year closed with several detri
mental causes removed, and with
piospects of greatly increased activity
and development.
'Negotiations witb the authorities at
Ottawa, begun last year, have been
continued by ray government and a
conference bas been agreed to for the

the relatioos of the province of British
Columbia and tbe Dominion of Canada

A report will be laid before you

possible, freight rates on agricultural
products. It is satisfactory to state, as
a consequence, that substantial reJuo-
tions have been made, and shipping
facilities have been improved. It is
also a matter of very great satisfaction
that the agricultural industry in this
province is so prosperous. To further
the interests of the stock raisers of
tho interior, a measure will be submitted providing for the establishment
of a system of cold storage in connection with abattoirs.
The subject of fishery development
is ono wliie^ has been receiving greatly increased attention and the efforts
of my government aro in the direction
of placing the industry on a more
satisfactory footing.
Steps will bo taken with a view to

Washington, Feb. 20.���Now that
the Schley matter has been settled
officially, it is understood that Secretary long feels that he is at liberty to
carry out tho projeot, cherished by
bim in the last year ol President McKinley's administration, to retire to
private life. However, Ibis is not ex-
pectod to ensue at once for there is no
certain knowledge of what may follow
in Congress, notwithstanding a strong
belief by thc administration tbat the
case is settled beyond revival. Therefore it is understood that the change
ln the cabinet circle will not take
place before the adjournment of the
present session of congress and perhaps not until next autumn.

The advocates of tbe Canadian
Pacific railway continue to inveigh
against the Crow's Nest Southern
Thoy now admit that they were mis
taken in their assertions tliat James
Hill owned a control of the stock of
the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co., hut
they still find fault with him because
he is building a railroad over
which some of the coke and coal pro
duced in the basin of the Crow's Nest
may find a market in the states.
The organs state that Mr. Hill's
Interests are south of the line, but
this is net true so far as reaching
smelters is concerned. liy means of
railway linos and steamers the Great
Northern reaches nearly evory smelt
ing point in British Columbia. With
the Nelson and Fort Sheppard railway
the G. N. can deliver fuel at tbo Nel
son smelter. If it became necessary
for the Trail smelter to have its fuel
shipped via tbe Greot Northern it
could be hauled to Northport by rail
und taken frcm thence by steamer on
the Columbia river to Trail. Grand
Forks, Greenwood and Midway will
be reached by the Great Northern
liranci, which is being extended from
Marcus. In case Kaslo builds a
smelter, or in the event of the Pilot
Hay plant resuming operations, they
could be served with fuel by the Great
Northern by boat and rail. From this
it will be seen that Mr, Hill has an
interest in the smelters nurth of the
lino and besides this he is giving the
people of the Kootenays and Yale the
benefit of a competing line.
Let a glance be taken into tbo mat
ter of marketing some of the coal and
coke of tho Crow's Nest measures in
ordc to learn if it will be so disast
rous to the interests of British Columbia to ship luel to tbe south from the
Crow's Neat mines, as the C. P. R
organs would like to make the public
believe. The report of the minister of
mines for tho year ending December
31st, 1000, which is tho liibt one issued
has the following concerning coal:
"The coal mining industry of the
province still continues to increase in
importance, and has again, tbis year
(1000), broken all previous reoords
with a totnl output of 1,.100,1711 tons,
of which 100,684 tons were converted
into coke, producing 85,140 tons of
coke, and leaving a net production of
coal of 1,489,605 tons. Of this production 914,183 tons of coal and 51,76'
tous of coke were exported."
Taking the total output ot 1,500,170
tons of coal producd and deducting tlic
914,183 tons exported in the form of
ooal and the .11,757 imported in the
form of coke what dors it leave to
be consumed at home'.' You cannot
subtract these latter1 lignres from the
total for the reason that it takes about
two tons of coal to"muko one ton of
ccke. By multiplying Uie amount of
coke exported by two it gives 103,514
tons. This added Ic the 014,183 tons
of coal imported gives a total of 1,017,
607 to;,s as the actual exports
Sub'.ratct this from thc total amount
produced, 1,500,179 tons, and it
leaves 572,482 tons consumed in the
provlnre. This is le*s than one-fifth
of the total.
If the Ideas of the reirogro->loiiists
were carried out and Junius Hill and
others prevented lrom marketing the
oosl of British Columbia in the United
States, and there is where the most of
the coal exported from British Columbia is marketed and what would bo
thc result? It would be a death blow
to one of the most important industries in the province. There are probably 5,000 men employed directly and
indirctly in the eoal industry in llritish Columbia, including those engaged
ln and about the collieries and iu tne
haulago and handling of It.
If the reactionary policy of tho C.P.
R. were carried out to a logical conclusion, although it would bo most
Illogical and inpolitic to do so, 4,000
of these men would have to be discharged and would be compelled to go
elsewhere to seek employment.
The puerile arguments  advanced by
the organs of the railway company in
tbis connection are hardly worth
answering, but as tbey might deceive
a few, for the sake ot those few, tho
real situation has to be shown if only
for tbe purpose of manifesting bow
utterly unieliable, how impolitic,
how out of keeping with the facts and
conditions they are. Some of the advocates of tbe C. P. R., like Rip Van
Winkle, seem to have just awakened
from a sleep of a decade or two and
are that far behind the times.
The copper market has apparently
gotten out of tho control of tho Amalgamated Copper Co., and prices are
Ising and promise to go still higher,
as it is evident that tbe trust has sold
out iU surplus stocks and is no longer
the big (actor in the market. In their
report issued at Liverpool on February
3rd tho James Lewis and Sons have
the following to say of the   situation:
Strenuous efforts have beeu made by
tbe firms representing the Amalgamated Copper company to prevent an
advance in the price of copper, as it
evidently does not suit the purpose of
those controlling this company thut
there should be an advance in either
copper oi copper shares at present,
thoy not having completed thoir preparations for ir.. In this endeavor some
7,500 tons of Standard for forward do
livery have been sold during tlie past
month���but without success. The
extraordinary ueinand from consumers, who considered ��50 a safe basis
upon which to replenish their depleted
stocks, accompanied by laige purchases on account of speculators
attracted Oy tho low pricj���"syndicates" being formed lor the purpose
in London and "pods" in Now York
���haB frustrated these efforts. After
failing lrom ��49 for cash on thc 2nd
ulto. to ��45 2s. Od. on tho 15th, Standard rose to ��40 on the 21st, declining
again to ��48 on the 23rd, but recovering to ��49 on tho 24th in sympathy
with a sharp advance in Rio Tinto
shares. On the 27th up to ��50 5s. was
paid on the execution of an order for
400 tons���apparently on American
account. Next day thc sale of about
2,000 tons with three months' prompt
by the representatives of the United
Metals Selling company, which was
rapidly abaorbod, failed to make much
impression on the market, causing a
decline ol only 5s., and although fur
ther 1,500 tons were sold on tho 29th
by tha same firm, prieeB quickly rose
until ��5(1 was reached on the 31st and
��57 today, the closing value being
��5b 15s for early delivery and ��5(1 10s
for tliroe months' prompt. Thc quo
tation for Lake Copper in New York
has been advanced from 11 to 13 cents
with an active demands from consum
ers. Up to $79 bas been paid for Amal
gamated shares and ��47 for Rio Tintos
���the increase in the value of latter
during the month being nearly
Very large sales of coppei have been
made by the representatives of the
United Metals Selling Company, proh-
ablyjaniounting to 20,000 tons. As
this quantity represents six months of
their production, the power of the
Amalgamated company to keep down
values must bo considerably reduced.
In another column will bo found a
communication fiom a resident of
Armstiong in which be outlines what
has hitherto been unsuspected by
many���what the plans of the Gieat
Northern are in this province. In his
opinion all tbo branches built into
the province and being construtcd are
part of a comprehensive plan of the
railway company to const rut a short
line to the coast which will ultimately
be made thc main line. In brief tbe
N'elsou nnd Bedlington is already built
from the main lino to tne foot of
Kootenay lake. Tbe gap between the
foot of tho lake and the Nelson and
Fort Sheppard terminus at Nelson oan
be covered by bouts the sameas is now
being done by the Canadian Pao!fie,
From Nelson the cars will run via the
Nelson and Fort Sheppard road and
the Spokane Falls and Northern to
Marcus. There they will be switched
to tlie railway which is beieg built to
Grand Forks, Midway, Princeton, the
Pacific terminus of which is at tbe old
market building in Victoria. lt is
claimed that this route to the coast is
a sho ter one than thu ono at present
traversed via Spokane and Seattle and
that when completed the through passenger trainp, and most of the through
freight trains bearing merchandise to
and from China, Japan and Siberia,
will go this way, and, as a conee-
queuce, pass through Nelson.
Should the Canadian Pacific exlond
tho Columbia and Western from Midway on to tbo coast then Nelson
would be ono of tho most important
railway contros in tbe Kootenays. It
looks as thought these railway events

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
There is noth ing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in t e worst
oases.   It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, o Villa Ridge,
111., says: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good condition. I cannot
tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful nnd tormenting disease, Asthma, nnd thought you had overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my us! niiislimiiut the trial aoted like a
charm.    Send me a full size bottle.
Rev, Dr. Morris Wecanler,
Rabbi of tha Cong. Bnai Israel,

Db. Taft Bros. Medicine Co.,
Gentlemen : J Your Asthmalene is an
excellent remedy for Asthma and Hay
Fever, and its composition alleviates all
troul.les whioh combine with Asthma.
Its success is astonishing and wonderful.
After having it carelully analyzed, we obc state that Asthmalene contains
no opium, morphine, chloroform or ether.    Very truly yours,

Drs. Taft linos. Medicine (Jo.
Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of yonr Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been nfflcted with spasmodic aBthma for tho past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill ns well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th streot, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of ABthmaleno.
My wife commenced taking it about the flrst of November. 1 very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottlo her Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to ail who are iifflioted with this distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D. PHELPS, M. D.
Dit. Taft Bros, Medicine Co, Feb. 5,190L

Body of H. V. Love Found
In Water at the City
Thought   He   Became   Despondent and Drowned
Yesterday morning abont 10.30 T.
Kelly, porter for the Madden House,
while down at the city wharf to rnoet
the incoming boat observed a body
floating on the water a short distance
fr.-.ni the wharf. Ho notified W. J.
Astley who was at his boat house.
Mr. Astley took out a boat aud towed
the body in and notified the police.
Chief of Police Jarvis and Constable
Ilevener dragged the body up on shore
where it was taken chargo of by Mr.
Bullock-Webster, chief of the provincial police, who had it removod to the
undertaking rooms of McArthur and
Co. A telegram was then sent to Dr.
Forin, at Slocan City, who was the
nearest coroner, in the absence of Dr.
Arthur. The body was recognized as
thatofH.V. Love who disappeared
from the eity in December last.
An inquest was held at 5 o'clock at
McArthur's tbe following jury serv-
inng: Dr. Quinlan, foreman; Dr.
Armstrong, H. Stevens, VV. Clayton,
T. W. Lillie and S. Allan.
Dr. McLellan examined the body
and stated that there was no appearance of any foul play, the indications
being that the deceased had been
drowned and had been in the water
for about two months. Chief Jarvis
stated that in November last the deceased who had till then been employed as janitor in the K.W.C.block,
had lost his position. He came to the
iail and asked for shelter and was
kept there doing small jobs around the
city office and a little work occasionally around town. On December 18th
after sweeping out tbe nicy hall ho
brought the keys to the police and
handed thcin over and without saying
a word went down tbe sheet and was
not seen again until the corpse was
found ln tbe lake. Ho had been very
despondent and low-spirited for some
time before he left the jail
The evidence was heard as to the
finding of tbe body and then the jury
brought in a verdict of death from
drowning. The funeral will be today
He was about sixty years ot age and
had no relatives living as far as

shortness of the road and tho superiority of the gradients by way of Nelson
will place it on the now. short, transcontinental route of the Great Northern iu preference to Spokane, and that
Bonner's Ferry will bo the point
where the new and the old routes will
diverge. As soon as the Crow's Nest
road is completed to tbe coast, it will,
undoubtedly, become the main line of
the C. P. K. as it will bo much
shorter, ana have much better gradients than the present main line. It
will also not be so subjeot to the
delays produced by avalanches. The
new road of the Great Northern aud
tho Crow's Nest road will bo the
shortest and best transcontinental
lines in America,and it is my opinicn
that both of llieni Kill pass through
Nelson. I write to you for the purpose
to diuwing attention to the fact that
the Nelson and Iledlingtou and Nelson
and Fort Sheppard lines are not mere
branches, as so many suppose, but
parts of whnt will undoubtedly be the
main line of one of the chief railways
of the world. 1 am sorry I cannot
give exact figures, bnt havo no doubt
you can easily get the exact figures. I
have no doubt also that lhe exact
figures will show that in distance and
gradients the route from Bonner's
Ferry to Marcus by way of Nelson is
distinctly preferable to that by way of
Spokane.    Yours, etc.,

May Soon Have tho Main Great Northern Through Line.
Editor Minor,���As you are well
aware the Great Northern railway
Co., is building a new road, which
will pass through Grand Forks, Midway, Princeton, etc., and have its
terminus in the old market building
in Victoria. This road, when completed, will undoubtedly become the
main line ot the Great Northern, as it
will have better gradients than the
present main line,and be considerably
shorter. The fastest through passenger trains and most of the through
freight trains bearing merchandise to
and from Siberia, China, Japan, etc.,
will, undoubtedly, go by the new
route. It is important, therefore, to
know exactly what towns in British
Columbia the new route will pass
The opii.ion is generally held that
the new route and the present route
will diverge at Spokane. It seems to
me that this opinion is not well
founded, and that Spokane will be
off the new route altogether, while
Nelnon will he on it. I have no Great
Northern timetable, but I have meas
ured the distances on a good map, and
it seems to me that the distance from
Bonner's Ferry to Marcus by Ihe
Nelson and Btdlington, Nelson and
Fort Shoppard, and other roads, forming part of tho Great Nortnern, is
considerably less than tbe distance
between the same points by way of
Spokane. Although I nave no the
figures, 1 should think that the gradients, also, would be better by way of
Nelson than by way of Spokane.
From Bonner'! Ferry to Nelson there
ia steamboat communication. The
difference in altitude between the two
places cannot.therefore, be very great,
and the railway from one place to the
other will run along the margin of
the river and lake all the way. From
Nelson to Marcus the gradients will
not be aa good, but still it seems to
me that they must be better than those
between Spokane and Marcus, and
cortainly the gradients between Bon
ner's Ferry and Nelson will be mnch
better than tbrjBe between Bonner's
Ferry and Spokane,
lt is manifest,   therefore,   that  the
Decision Givon on Filing Maps
Mineral Claim Advorsed.
The ease of Paulson vs. Beeman was
continued yesterday and in thc afternoon was adjourned. Tbis trial
brought up some points in mining law
whieh have not heretofore been decided. In the affiadavlt of the plaintiff filed in entering the adverse to tbe
mineral claim about which the action
arose, the jurat was not dated. The
defendant claimed that this defeat
made the affidavit A nu'lity and
aplied tc have the action dismissed.
After areument his lordship decided
that as the affladvait was only an evidence to the adverse and was not to
be used as evidence at the trial that it
was sufficient and dismissed that
Section 37 of the Mineral act requires that the action to adverse must
be begun within 00 days and that
within 20 days after entering the
action a map or plan of the ground
claimed showing the extent and
boundaries, signed by a provincial
land surveyor, must be filed with the
mining recorder. It has heen the
practice to have this done Uy making
a survey on the ground but in this
case the plaintiff claimed that this
was not necessary as the statute did
not state that tbe map or plan
was to be made from a survey on tbe
ground. It was held that the plaintiff's contention was correct and that
as the plan was not to he used for
proot at the trial the survey could be
made any time before the trial. The
application of tbe plaintiff to dismiss
the action on this ground was uot
granted. This in tbe first time that
this question has come before the
Supreme court.
The plaintiff then put in all his
evidence with the exception of proving tbe ftee miners' certificate and
putting in the survey. In accordance with an order made by the late
chief justice he applied for a postponement oi the trial till the survey could
be made. This was granted and the
trial adjourned to a date to be fixed
by Mr. Justice Martin, tbe survey to
be made in the meantime. Costs to
the defendant in any event.
Coulter vs. Lynch, the last ease on
the list, was then taken up and will
be finished today. Tbe plaintiff
traded a halt interest in an hotel in
Ymir with the defendent for her residence in Nelson, but when tbe exchange came to be made refused to
make the transfer and this action was
bronght to compel tbe trasfer. Tbe
delendant claimed that tbe hotel was
not free from incumbrance as represented, that it was not furnished, that
it was not occupied and that it was
not in the business centre of Ymir.
Tbe plaintiff held that the defendant
was aware of all the circumstances
when the agreement was made. The
question whether a judgment against
a partnership holds as against

Says tlie Lardeau Railway Will He
Finished in Six Weeks.
O. A. Carlson, of Kaslo, was in tho
city yesterday, and in speaking about
business in the Slocan he said there
had been a noticeable ohange lately
for tho better and that hopes were
high of a more successful year than
last. Each advance ot a fraction of a
cent In the price of lead, he said,
brings comfort and joy to the people
of the Slocan.
In relation to the railway v hich is
being extended into the Lardeau
country by tile Canadian Paoific and
on which he and his associates have a
contract, he stated that '.'00 men are
now at work and good progress is
being made. The train which used to
run into the end of where the track
has heen laid for somo 20 odd mile��
has been abandoned on account of the J
snow, and now the trip  to where  the |
principal work is in progress, which
is about .'10 miles from lhe lake, is
made, in sleighs. The winter lias
bren a mild one and tlic men havo
ocen able lo make nearly full time
since the snow began to fall. Up to
October it was difficult to secure first-
class men. but since that lime tlior"
have been more men, than could be
given employment. The bridges are
nearly nil finished and there still remains a mile ot filling near the lake,
and two miles of tilling near Ten del
foot creek and some finishing touches
here and there. Tile road should he
completed in six weeks at tin*
Mr. Carlson nays tlic roird was a
hard and expensive sine to build. The
grubbing and clearing was costly as
the timber-wus heavy.and as there is
considerable low ground a great deal
of filling had to bu done. There wus
not much rock woik. These difficulties and tho trouble experienced in
getting men Capable of doing a good
day's worn made the carrying out of
the contract expensive.
Mr. Carlson says the road will < pen
one of the finest mining sections of
British Columbia. Cons'derablo ore
will be shipped out of there this season, as development work in a number
of properties has been in progress for
a loog time.

A New Discovery That Kills the Germ
ar.d Prevents Baldness.
Prelty early all the hair preparations
for dandruff, have some merit in
allaying itching of the scalp, and in
heing a,fairly good dressing for the
hair, but there is only one that recognizes what causes dandruff, falling
hair, and baldness, aud that destroys
the cause, a little getm-and that is
Newbro's Herpicide. This germ eats
its way into the scalp, down to the
hair root, where it saps that vitality
causing dandruff as it digs up the
scalp into little white scales. Unless
it is destroyed there's no permanent
stopping of falling hair and cure of
dandruff and baldness. Now bio's
Herpicide kills lhe germ. "Dostroy
tlie cause, you remove the effect."
