preferential tariff with Sir Wilfrid
Laurier and the other colonial premiers at the coronation conference,

STRENGTHENS MR. KAHN.

Will nelp U. S. Bill.

Chinese exclusion bill in tbe house
has received a dispatch from Canada
saying the special commission of the

Canadian commission recommends a
treaty which will permit strict exclusion and in the meantime a $500 head

States by way of Canada, Mr. Kahn
regards the action of the Canadian
commission as having an important
bearing on the exclusion subject in
the United States.

MANAGER
INTERVIEW WITH HAY.
Boer     Delegates   Discuss   Export  cf
Horses and Mules.
Washington,March 5.���Messrs. Wol ���
marans and Wessols, the Boor representatives, were received hy Secretary
of State Hay at 1 o'clock this afternoon. It was distinctly understood
that the Boers wero to be received as
private citizens and Mr. Hay talked
to tliom freely with this understanding.
The piincipal object of tbe delegates
was to induce the United States government to do something to terminate
tlie present struggle in South Africa,
though they wero not very specific as
tc what they wanted. A matter of
complaint by the delegates was tbe
shipment of borscs and mules and
provisions from the United States for
the British forces in South Africa.
Secretary Hay went over this subject
very carefully with them, citing
authorities and precedents which he
pointed out conclusively established
tbo lack of authority on Ihe part of
the general government to stop tbo
American farmor frum shipping his
provisions, and the stock raisor from
selling his produce anwyhero in the
world, where ho could get the host.
price. He also pointed out that the
government's attitude in this, as in
other matters connected with the
South African war, had been strictly
neutral and that the governmont had
done nothing to prevent shipments of
commodities to the Boer forces.

3. Ohed Smith  Speaks  of  Manitoba's
Immigration Prospeots.
Winnipeg, March 5.���J.Obed Smith,
immigration commissioner, is convinced that this coming year will be
the greatest the Canadian west has yet
seen in the way of immigration. An
indication of this was tho train load
of fine settlers who arrived on Friday
last. It ia unusual tbat settlers
arrived so oarly in the spring.
A large number of the new settlors
and those that have come in recently,
are settling in Southern Alberta. The
majority of these have not yet got
houses erecteo.and the government are
now sending out tents for these people
to live in till they get their land
plowed and the crop put in. Then
they will havo leisure to erect buildings. If the settlers put up buildings
now they would have to neglect the
work on the crop and in consequence
lose a year's work.
Mr. Smith explained tbe system the
dopartnient had of knowing just how
many immigrants come into a
country. Men on each train that
comes into the country from eithor tbo
United States or the east question
each passenger as to name, nationality, occupation and destination.
Thus, when it is said that last year
18,000 settlors came to Canada from
the United States, a name can bo
given for eacn settler.
Cables from the agcnicB in Europe
and reports from tho United States
agencies will soon be ooming into Mr
Smith, and these will bo a fair indi
cation of tbo season's work. This
present year Mr. Smith expects about
40.000 Americans to come and settle in
Western Canada.
As un indication of the interest
Americans aro taking in the country,
Mr. Smith mentioned how a certain
railway company, which had beon
granted land in Ontario, had established at Weyburn, on the Soo line, a
large immigration hall, and was practically doing work on parallel lines
to that the government waa doing.
The object of tho company, of course,
is to sell and settle their lands, but
that fact does not deteriorate from
the benefit that is dono Cana da.

It-en appuinied is manager of the
North Star, ono of the leading silvur-
lead mines of East Kootenay to fill
the position made vacant by tho resignation of Frank Bobbins, wbo baH
been manager foi several years. Mr.
Parker was formerly connected with
the North Star mine under Mi. Robins
in the capacity of superintendent.
Under the very able management of
Mr. Bobbins the North Star has been
most successful and became the largest
producer of silver-lead ore in East
Kootenay. surpassing in bulk of output and its value eveu tbe famous St
Eugene of Moyie. Since Mr. Bobbins
assumed the management tho property
has produced a net profit of $000,000,
ono half of which was paid out in
dividends and the remainder is in tbe
treasury. Mr. Parker's knowledge of
tbe mine, coupled with his ability as
a mining engineer, makes bim the
ritiht man foT the position which he
will fill to the satisfaction of both tbo
management and tho stockholders.
It will be remembered that Mr. Parker
succeeded Mr. Bobbins as manager of
tbe Brooklyn and Stomwiuder uud
now he takes his place as manager of
the North Star. These properties aro
all owned by Messrj, Mackenzie and
Mann, the well known railway contractors. Mr. Parker is in the city,

In addition to successfnily negotiating for tho Robin Hood group Miss

MINING LAWS.
the recent actions commenced in
tho Supreme Court at Victoria mid
Vancouver against certain companies
that have, it is alleged, not complied
Willi tbe requirements ot tile Companies Act, will suivo at least tho pur
pose of drawing attention of somo of
the clauses in which the Companies
act conld he improved. The clauses
under which action has heen commenced were Inserted in the act with
the object of giving tbe small share*
holdei tho rlxlit to demand certain
facts regarding the management of
tho company's affairs.
It lias boon found that the clause
has beon practically inoperative and
that the small shareholder is just as
much on tlm outside as lie ever was.
If he attempts to gain information
which the officers of the company do
not care to give he can obtain .that
informations only after a course of
legal actions, the expense of which he
will hesitate to incur.
Certain returns are to be furnished
to tho registrar.general and though
most companies comply with this requirement, until the commencement
of the actions mentioned no one either
in his public or private capacity ever
made any endeavor to enforce the
prompt making of these returns. The
initial intention uf the act was good
hut the carrying out of it was
defective.
It should not be difficult to draft a
section for tho act that would he a
reality and would give the minority
shareholders the security and the information to which he is entitled.
There should als-i in these regulations
be a distinction made between those
companies which are close, corporations and those whose shares are dealt
in on the market and are or have been
offered to public subscription, and
commercial and mining companies.
Close corporations, and that term
inigbt be deiiued, are under obligation
to only tbe few shareholders and the
creditors to whom debts duo have not
been paid. There seems no reason
why they should put ou filu with the
registrar-general a financial statement
and other information as to their
undertakings any more than an individual or a partnership should.
Commercial companies on whese
stock there is the full liability of the
nominal par value of tho shares come
in another category and the act as it
now is seems to have these specially in
mind. The provisions of it meets the
requirements of shareholders and
creditors very well.
Tho clauses providing for special
powers for miuing companies and
special regulations, seem to be the
work of a clumsy amateur and in
them nothing in reality has been accomplished except the raising of the
fees for Incorporation These companies are allowed to issue stock without further liability than that of the
first purchase prioe, This presumes
tbat thc stock will be offered on the
open market, and such being the easo,
as a natural consequence, there should
be a public official whole duty it is lo
see that all requirements of the law
are lived up to, and as in tho case of
banks and Insurance companies, theic
should be regular and olliciiil audits.
The filing of a list of the shareholders
is needless trouble because it is no
protection to the shareholder or the
creditor to know who aro the members of ilie company. Protection in
regard to these companies is required
for the dealer who extends small credits
to such companies and provision
should be made for personal liability
of tbe directors for unsecured
creditors. A mining property is not
always an asset that nan, evoo under
a judgment, be turned into money and
numerous have beeu thu cases where
persons who nre responsible personally,   have   bought   goods und  hired
mon whon they knew that the only
expectation of being able to pay for
them was from the sale of stock which
is always problematic. Though the
individual credit of the person older
ing the goods or hiring the men may
not have been specifically pledged it
was by inference, and in consequence
the merchant has frequently lost bis
gonds and tbe laborer his wages.
The regulations regarding prospectuses look well when reading the
act but it Is well known that the
tiling of a prospectus with the regis-
trai-geiieial, as required, has practically never beeu complied w'th. Then
there is the case when commissions
equal half, if not more tban half, of the
selling prioe are given agenU to sell
stock. Ibese are more interested in
celling the stock than in making a
success of tUo vonture fur which the
company was Incorporated,and tbcugb
the small part of the purchasers
money which was tn have gone to the
funds of the company may have been
propeitly expended, the probability of
enough money being secured to give
the company more than a shadow of a
show of being a success was small.
Selling stock under sucu conditions Is
little dill'ercnt from obtaining money
under false pretence. It is here tnat
tho government should stop in and
insist that a proper prospectus be gjt
out, and that in the case of a mining
ventuie that a certain sum should be
first procured before the monoy is
spent, otherwise it will bo returned.
fair regulations governing public
compunies should be enacted and once
enacted there should be an officer to
see that they aro complied with. The
provision of a penalty for uon-cora-
piianee has not been sufficient and to
make it everybody's business to enforce it means in this as in everything
else that it has become nobody's and
the act has nut been complied with.
TOUBIST ASSOCIATION.
At a well attended meeting, held on
Tuesday evening, tho Kootenay Tourist Association was formed. The headquarters are to he in Nelson and thero
are to bo branches in the other towns
of the Kootenay. Thc plan of enlarg
ing it so as to take in the entire
Kootenays is a good one. as thero are
many places worthy of a visit in the
mining regions of llritish Columbia.
The mines of this section, as one or
the speakers at the meeting pointed
out, should lorm one of the greatest
sources of attraction. Take a mine
and reduction plant like that at the
Ymir, where tho largest stamp mill in
Kritish Columbia is in operation. The
plant is not difficult of access from
Nelson, as it can be reached by a
short railway ride and a good wagon
road leads from Ymir to the mine and
the mill. Tho big mill, with Its
eighty stamps, thundering as they drop
and crush the ore, together with the
large cyaniding plant are well worthy
of traveling a leng distance to see.
The plant of the Hall Mines in this
city, where the operations of smelt
ing are conducted, should prove interesting to visitors. The management
might have an hour on certain days in
thc week when visitors should bo
allowed to examine the plant. The
Silver King, Granite, Poor man and
other mines in the vicinity of Nelson
as well as others in the several
division ot the Kootenays should he
interesting to tourists. It is the desire
of nearly every visitor to this sectiou
to inspect some of the mines and reduction plants and it should be the
duty of the members of the association, as well as those who aro not, to
endeavor to see that their wishes in
this respect are gratified.
Tho suggestion thnt the roads leading out of the city be put iu good
condition for driving is a good one
These roads, winding as they do
through the woods and np and down
slopes, can be made ^ost attractive, as
they afford views of mountain, valley,
river and lake that are full of beauty.
It should nut oost a great deal to put
them in such a oondition that they
will make first class driveways. Besides the benefits to bo derived from
the tourist attracted to the oity these
improvements make Nelson a more
desirable residential place aud hence
will cause a number to come here and
cast their lot with us.
Now that tho association is in working order its objects should bo pushed
with vigor. It is a business organization made up of business men, and it
should be kept as such and should not
enter into entangling alliances. It
should be kopt up us a distinctive
ton list association, as in this way it
can accomplish the best results. All
who are called on should contribute
what they feel that they cau afford to
maintain the association, as it will be
in tho nature of money invested on
wbich 'he returns to the community
will be many fold. The experience
of other corrinnmities show tbat such
organizations are a source of profit,
and that being the case the same
result can be achieved here, with the
expenditure of the proper amount of
time and monoy.
If every citizen will only feel that
he is a part and parcel of tho association and if all tho members will work
energetically and harmoniously together it is certain th at that the  end

Moyie has certainly a great mino in
the Aurora, aud if the price of lead
continuos to advance as at present it
will not be long until tbis property
will be shipping oro and paying dividends, says tho Moyie Leader. It is
estimated that already some $0,000
have been expended on development
work nn this group which consists of
five full claims. The No. I tunnel is
now in 825 feet. From this there aro
two crosscuts to tbe west, one 40 feet
in length and the other 35 foot in
length. These are running at an
angle from tho main tunnel and on
separate veins. Then there is a shaft
down 40 feet. This is on the vein and
tlie oro has averaged from 18 inches to
four feet in width all the way down.
The Aurora io directly across tho lake
and on the same lend as the St.
Eugene. It has more work done and
looks bettor today than did the Lake
Snore group at the time it was purchased by the Cauadiun Gold Fields
syndicate. The Aurora Is owned by
Thos. Rader, O. J. Johnson and Capt.
I. B. Sanbourn,
The steamer Alberta on Tuesday
brought in 150 tons of Rambler-
Cariboo ore for tho Selby smeltor at
Sun Francisco, and yesterday brought
another shipment of tho same amount
frum that mine. The International on
Tuesday brought in 35 tons of Whitewater for Trail, and 22 tons of Red
Fox for Hall Mines smelter; yesterday it brought 35 tons of Sunset for
the Hall Mines smelter and 35 tons of
Whitewater for Tiail. Tho Kokanee
yebterday brought in 30 tons of ore
from tho True Blue near Kaslo, for
the Hall Mines smelter. The total ior

HIGH SCHOOLS.
There Are Now Five in the Province���
Their Progress.
The pnbli.! school report, just issued
by tho department of education, contains the following account of the
high schools of tbe province:
In Januarv, 1001, a high school was
opened in Nelson in one of the unoc-
cuied room of thu public school building. This school should prove of great
advantage not only to Nelson but to
the many towns of Kootenay that are
tributary to that important city. With
characteristic energy, tbo citizens
dunni! the last summer erected, at a
cost cf about 810.000 ($5,000 ol which
was contributed by the government),
a four-roomed high school building.
On the 1st cf September of the present
school yoar Rossland secured the advantages of a high school, while on
the 6th January, 1002, a high school
���"ill be opened in Vernon, The action
of the legislature u- voting at the last
session ui the house, increased aid to
high schools throughout the province
cannot fail to have a stimulating
effect on these important institutions;
but boards of trustees must bear in
mind that before this grant can be
given the building and its equipment
must be satisfactory to the council of
public instruction. Coming to the
coast cities,it gives me much pleasure
to report that a fine new high school
is now in course of erection in Victoria, which when completed will cost
in the neighborhood of $40,000. In
my last report the old building was
mentioned as being quite unsuitable,
aud it is particularly gratifying that
the school board of Victoria should so
quickly have taken steps to carry into
effaot my suggestion that a new building should be erected at once. Tbe
high school of New Westminster is
comfortably housed iu the new wing
which last year was added to tbe Cen
tral school The progress of the Von
couver high school during the past
three years has been remarkable.
Affiliated with MeGill university,
officered by an excellent staff of seven
instructors, and having at present on
its registers the names of about three
hundred students, this school compares
favorably with any similar institution
in the older provinces. The high
school in Nanaimo is ably conducted
by Principal Hunter and his assistant
master, but it is doubtful whether the
building with its equipment is of
such a kind as to entitle the city to
the extra high school grant.
FAVORS A WOOD INSPECTOR.
Editor Miner,���There was a discussion through the press some time ago
nneut the desirability of having all
fire wood, used and delivered in Nelson measured, und certified to by an
appointee   of   the   city,   in the  same
manner that the coal i�� now being
treated. I also understind that it was
considered in the council with the
result (under legal advice) that it
would be flrst necessary to obtain
from the provincial government additional power to add to the prosont
bylaWB of the city to that intent.
Since that time tbo matter seems to
have laid iu abeyance, and nothing
further done, although the entire community were in favor of such an
action, and today it would meet with
universal approval, as there is manifest discontent all round, and complaint at tho present deliveiy.
Such a bylaw being enacted would
not only stamp out all dissatisfaction
but would be quite a source of revenue
to the city. I with others, would liko
to see this matter determined now,
that the government is in session, and
if necessary a petition circulated
which would he signed readily by
ever consumer in town. There are
other movements now under consideration for the improvement and welfare
of the town, and I think this being
equally beneficial, should be given immediate advisement also. Thanking
you in advance for space in your valuable paper, I am, yoars very truly,

SMELTER GOING AHEAD.
Marysville Tribune Denies That Work
Has Stopped There.
There have been countless rumors
regarding Marysvillo.and the smelter,
and many of them have originated in
the minds of vicious persons wbo
seemed possessed with a desire to injure communities as well as individuals. The Tiibune desires to state
rigbt here that there is no doubt
about tbe Sullivan company building
a smelter; tbat it will be built in
Marysville; tnat thousands of dollars
bave already been expended ou construction; that there is no foundation
in the statement or rumor that thc
plant will be moved to Elko or any
other place; that G. W. Hull, the
general manager, is pushing forward
the wort' as fast as men and money
will do it; anc that the man or men.
who circulated the stories that Mr.
Hull was entertaining overtures from
any source for a change in the location, In behalf of tbe oompany or witn
any idea of personal gain, is guilty of
vicious and malicious falsifying. The
Tribune would add that Mr. Hull,
representing large capital invested in
these works, is nnxious to seo construction proceed without delay, and
in his management is doing what ho
can to consei ve the best interests of
the people he represents. In carrying
out a project of tbe magnitude of a
smelter, too often there are those who
would do all in their power to create
discord and dissatisfaction. The time
haa arrived for a cessation of tha
kind of work, Spring is now here,
and with the mild weather work will
be pushed,the force will 'jo inoreased,
aud within two rnr-jths, the great
frames of the buildings will be enclosed; th" roasters will be completed,
and machinery will be going into
place, what has been developing during the cold season, will materialize as
a smelter, in fact as well as name,
nearly ready for handling the great
body of ore in the Suliivan mine
waiting treatment.

The case is one of the most unusual

suicide together, and that the man
weakened, allowing tbe woman to go
to her death alone. The defense disputed that there had been any agreement between the two to end their
lives together, and asserted that Mrs.
Nichol had takon her own life while
Burnett was lying intoxicated at her

The wator in tho lake in the twenty-
four hours ending at 3 p.m. yesterday
rose 2 inches. It is yet'one inch lower
than the low water mark reached last
year.
Tho death occurred yesterday morning of Mrs. I'eter Beryold, aged 31
years, from pneumonia. Hhe was a
native of Christiana, Norway. The
funeral will take place lrom her late
residence on Water street, on Friday
afternoon.
The plan Of seats for the Enid Martin concert which is to be held this
evoning at the Congregational church
is open at the store of the Canada
Drug and Book Company. The company is said to be a very good oue and
the concert tonight should bo well
worth attonding.
The first debate of the Young Men's
Literary and Dcbatiog society was
hold Tuesday evening in the parlors of
the Congregational chnrch, the subject
of dobote being "Resolved that foreign
immigration i^ detrimental to the best
interests of the country." The debato
was won by those representing the
negative side.
Mr. and Mrs. .1. P. Crafts, of
Hoston, Mass., who have been in the
city for the last couple of days,
stopping at the ilurae, left yesterday
for Eholt. Their mission in the city
was to search for a sou of whom they
have not heard anything for the I'ast
six months. The last letter received
from him was dated at Elioit, where
he said ho was working in a mine,
since then they have not been able to
get any answer from him or any information and they have taken the
trip across the continent to search for
him, fearing that he has in-t with
some serious accident.
.    FOUND IT
Ooffee Was Doing the Work in Good Style-
Members of tbe same family are
affected differently by coffee drinaing.
One may feel the effect in a disordered
stomaoh while auotlior may have not
trouble with the stomach so far as
known, but have palpitation of the
heart and finally organic heart
disease, or perhaps in another the
kidneys may become affected.
As an illustration, a family in
Murpliyshoro, 111., reports an experience. -*.:rs. Cole discovered that the
sour stomach and nervous restless
nights were caused by coffee drinking. Her mother suffered trom nervousness when coffee was used, while
tho brother of tlio family became I
wreck directly from coffee drinking.
Mrs. Cole, in her letter, savs, re
(erring to her brother, "lie wont from
one physiciau to another and his ease
puzzled them until he had ttiedll
different physicians. Some thought
he bad apoplexy, others locomotor
ataxia, 6ome advised operations to
relieve the pressure at certain points
ulthogcther his case became so alarming that we wee afraid to leave him
alone. He freqnontlv fainted away,
and was in a most i\ retched condition
Finally one of the physicians suggested that possibly coffee brought on
some of the symptoms, so he was persuaded to give op coffee and begin the
use of I'ostum Food Coffee. Then he
began to recover, and day by day the
old tonbles left. Now he has gotten
entirely well, has gained about 30
pounds and is the picture of health.
Of course he and bis family use
Postum regularly. He says ho would
ns soon drink a spoonful of poison as
of old fashioned coffee.
When wo first began to make Postum it was boiled but a few minutes
and none of ns liked it, but slnco we
began making if properly by having
it boil long enough to biing out the
llavor we all consider it superior to
the old fashioned coffee. lt is delicious when mane right and fliaf is easy.
A number of onr friends have been
cured of various ailments by leaving
off coffee and using Postum. Wilh
Mis. the coffee caused a smothering sensation, bloating and serious
trouble with thc heart. Sho has
entirely recovered since changing
from common coffee to I'ostum."
Edward Hunt and .1. Edwards, left
last evening for the main line on tbeir
way to the Horsefly country wheie

H. LaBrash and S, l'leif were yesterday committed lor trial at the
assizes by Magistrate ('reuse in the
gold brick case. The magistrate in
making the commitment stated that
when a thing was taken it made no
difference in the offence whether it
waa dune openly or secretly,the giving
of a receipt had also no bearing on the
offence. A servant had no lien on the
goods belonging to his master under
any circumstances and the accused
had admitted having taken the bullion
in question.

The coming Ping Pong tournament
in aid of the Kootenay Lake General
hospital promises to bo a great succets
and it is the intention of the committee to do tbeir utmost to make it so.
It is particularly desired to make is
essentially an open tournament and it
will not be confined to adults only,
children being equally eligible for
entry. The fine premises in Fraternity hall have been secured for the
event and six full sized tables will
enable several games to be in progress
at tho same time. A list of rules
governing the play will be published
in The Miner in due course by the
committee. The local merchants have
very kindly contributed handsome
prizes for the various events. In addition to thoso already published,
Teezel aud Co, have presented a handsome case of perfume. It is hoped
that tbe people of Nelson will cooperate with the Ladies Aid hoeiety by-
entering iu largo numbers for tbe
tournament, anil so contribute to their
own pleasure and to this laudable
object at the same time.
Henri Stuart, the energetic advance
representative of tho Fiechtl's Comic
Players is in the city and yesterday in
speaking about tho company which
appeal's hero next week be said: "We
ean guarantee the theatre goers one of
tbe best entertainments that evet
appeared in this ci'y. We give farce
comedy, high class vaudeville,
bulletins and the prison scene from '11
Trovatore.' Tho performance is a con-
tinuous one wilh no curtain until the
eluee. Everything is new, original
and up-to-date. Tlie Fieehtl sextet of
Tyrolean warblers came direct from
Berlin, where thoy oreated a sensation
with their wonderful vocalization,
liratt's Royal Marionettes are most
entertaining and novel. They give
their part of the show in a little
theatre of their own. They constitute an interesting and humorous part
of tbe show. George and Lily Bird in
their original sketch 'Scenes in a
Chineso Theatre' are most original
and pleasing. Nellie Goodwin with
her occontric danoing and excellent
singing, assisted by Master Herbet,
nevei fails to get an encore. Bert and
Fannie Wiggins with their singing
and sketch work are artiste entertainers. Besides those mentioned there
are othei'B. The closing act, 'German
Town on the Hudson,' introduces the
entire company, with elegant costumes, special music and elegant
scenery. Tho performance is under
the direction of Ocurgo A. Bird,"

GERMANY GETS CONCESSION.
China Grants Mining Monopoly in

London, March, 5.���The Pekin correspondent of the Times says he has
learned that tlio Herman agreement
for the acquisition of a mining monopoly in Shautug province is upon the.
ove of settlement, and that it will
confer great political advantages. The
agreement will practically close a
large part of Shantung province to
British aad American industrial en
terprises, and the question is not
naturally unaskud, continues tbe correspondent, how Great Britain and
the United States ean ignore the inconsistency of their attitude in protesting against Russian encroachments in Manchuria, while acquiescing
in the more insidious but equally exclusive policy of Germany in Shantung. Germany bases her claim to
this monopoly, concludes the correspondent, on the fact that it was demanded by the late Baron Von Kettler
and that she cannot withdraw a claim
