ASSESSMENT ROLL.
Report of the City Assessor Presented
to the Council.
To the mayor and council   of the city
of Nelon:
Gentlemen,���I beg herewith to make
return of the assessment roll for the
year 1001. The total assessed vnlue
is (2,201,075, made up as follows:
East Ward: Lands 8002,000, im
provements 8500,240, total 81,201,330;
West Ward: Lands 853s,750,improve-
ment 8401,805, total 81,000,045.
The assessed values in 1900 were,
lands 81,230,035, improvement 8823,-
200, total 112.050,835, showing an increase for the year in the assessed
value of the real property of the city
of 8232,140.
The total assessed value ot the
lands in the city shows a Small decrease 85,705) from tbat of Idb. year.
This is accounted for by thc fact
that several properties which were
then assessable nre now exempt from
taxation. Wero it not for this there
would have been a small increase in
the assessment of lnnds,
I have the honor to be, gentlemen,
your obedient Bervnnt,
J. K. STRACHAN,
Assessor.
Nelson, B. C., May 27. 1001.
Among the several properties exempted from taxation, mentioned in
the above report aie: The land now
owned by the Dominion government
on Vernon street where the new post-
office and oustom house is to be erected, the Congregational church property, the property belonging to the
streot railway company on whioh is
ercoted the car barns, and lands held
by R. Marpole In the Interests of the
C. .P R. which are all exempt from
taxation.
ANOTHER LAKE DISASTER.
Milwaukee, May 27.���The officers of
the steamer lloston, which arrived
here todny, reported having sighted
tho masts of a schooner which was
abandoned during the gale of Friday.
It is thought that this tells of a second disaster near Sheboygan, as the
wt-eok was sighted a score of miles
from the place where the Rlabs and
batch covers supposedly from the
schooner Hack ley were discovered
Saturday. The Boston did not get
sufficiently close to ascertain the name
of the abandoned schooner,whose decks
were awash.
| Everett, Wash., May   27.���A special
from Skykomiah, Wash., says:
A frightful accident occurred on the
Jlne of the Groat Northern railway
early this afternoon, which resulted
tn the demolition of an engine, al-.
most half a train of loaded merchandise ears and a large steam -shovel.
That no one was instantly killed is
regarded as little less than a miracle.
WeBtbound freight train No. 15
passed through the big tunnel shortly
after noonj and was speeding along
down the rugged western slopes of the
Cascades nnd had reached a point
about lour miles east of Skykomish,
when suddenly a loaded push car came
Into view.
Engineer John McGhourly, who w��b
in charge of the forward end of No.
15, mnde every possiblejeffort to check
his engine, but the momentum; was
too great. When within a few feet
of the then deserted push car he and
his firemen were horrified to see can
after can of giant powder piled high
on top of the car. It was too Ate to
even tlitnv < jumping and the two
heroically stood their ground.
A second Inter and the pilot crushed
into the push car. Explosion aftier
explosion rapidly followed each succeeding one being more terrific, if
possible, until finally, whon the
smoke had cleared, the awfulness of
tho havoo created was realized.
The engine was literally tor. to
fragments, her boiler raised clear of
all other parts, while her great trucks
were hurled up the sto'ep mountain
side for a considcrnble distance. ' The
steam shovel, which stood on a siding nearby, wns torn to splinters and
will be fit fo nothing but scrap.
About 75 yards from tlie scene of the
teirible explosion stood the shack of
the track walker. It, also, was utterly
demolished, but strange to say, the
trackwalker himself, who was in the
shack, was but slightly scartched.
Loads of merchandise of various kinds
are scattered promiscuounly In all di
rections. A hole sufficiently large to
bury a locomotive in was torn in thc
roadway.
Engineer McGhourly wns severely
injured about the bend and otherwise bruised up as a result of the concussion. He wns put nboard a special
train and taken to a hospital nt Everett. The fireman was also badly bruised, but not seriously injured. No one
else was hurt.
Traffic on the road is at a stnndstill
mid no information was obtainable
as to how long it will require to make
necessary repairs.

GREATER   THAN   CROW'S   NEST.
Gould    Syndicate    Offer    to   BuHd
Rnllwny.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Vancouver, May 27.���Tlie steamship
Tees has arrived from the north
bringing news of great excitement
over the Tnlqunn Valley con I fields.
It iB reported that they are bijfifer
and greater than the Crow's Nest
fields. Thirty miles of ooal fields have
been acquired by the Howard Gould
syndicate, nu English syndicate, and
Robins of Nanaimo. The Gould syndicate offer to huild a railway 150
miles to I lazclton for land grant, to
tap their mines nnd coal fields.
Spioer's shingle mill here wns destroyed by fire   with n loss of 810,000.
HIGH WATER  AT THE COAST.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Vnnoouvcr, May 27.���The warm
weuther has melted the snows of the
mountains and turned the mountain
streams into torrents. The 11.40
11min was delayed yesterday for several hours owing to the snowshed near
Hear creek being washed away. The
Fraser is also rising rapidly and danger from Hood Is said to be more Imminent than for years.
When the city council sidetracked
the cemetery by-law it waa evidently
for the purpose of clearing the way
for thc dlscusson- of-ft question more
local and pressing in its character.
For the third time, within as many
weeks, the unsettled question of the
duties of the local health officer and
his relation to the other physicians of
the town, and also his relative duties
to thc city, formed the chief matter
for discussion at the regular meeting
of the city dads last evening. At the
meeting of the council it was intimated by the mayor that a communication bad been received from Dr.
Hail, who was present, and suggested
that the council should form into a
meeting of the board of health,
which suggestion was acted upon, and
the letter from Dr. Hall was read enquiring-into the attitude of tbe health
officer cn the Graham case.
Alderman Hamilton said it appeared
as if tney had formed Into n committee to discuss the question as to what
the dtities of the health officer were.
Mayor Fletcher stated that it was
the duty of the doctors to formally
report every case coming under their
personal notice.
Alderman Hamilton said thnt -so
far as they could understand the case,
there appeared to be a difference of
opinion as to what the duties of the
health officer were, and they had better have that difficulty, removed. They
had had difficulty in the past and
there should surely bo some authority
to define tbe duties of the health officer and tlie doctors also, and they
had better have their duties clearly
stated and make them all perform
their work. ,
Alderman Gillett suggested that as
Dr. Hall was present that he should
be given an opportunity to state hie
case.
Dr. Hall then went on to refer ��� to
the Graham case and stated that he
(Graham) did not Know tbat he was
required to get a certificate of release
from the doctor until he saw it in the
paper. .
The mayor enquired if the Graham
case was still under  quarantine.
Alderman Irving said that the
quarantine was lifted on Saturday.
Somo further discussion followed,
when Dr. Hall stated that having had
a consultation with the other doctors
of tn city,, lie would, with the consent
!of the board of health, giije his views
on the matter.
Dr. Hall,was then asked to state
his grievance, and said that the city
admitted that it was responsible for
the prevention of the spread of contagion by establishing quarantine
regulations and when _n person takes
it the city alone Is responsible. If the
precautions taken to pi-event Its
spread are efficient there Bhould be no
danger but he failed to sec how a man
could efficiently discharge those
duties unless the health olllcer
personally investigated tbe cases
himself.
The medical men were not always
in a position to state definitely if it
was a genuine case of infection and
when | they reported suspected eases
they were entitled to the opinion of
the health-officer -on the matter, as
sometime! they were given to understand by the patients cr their attendants that their services would no
longer be deemed necessary, and he
thought they ought to have the matter Bottled definitely so-that they
might know where they stood.
Thc mayor suggested that there
might be n little more of give and
take in tho matter. He suggested that
It was the duty of the health officer
after the case was reported on 'suspicion to visit, the patient a few days later and ascertain for himself, ns cases
frequently occurred where It wns
practically Impossible to tell if it
were an infectious case or not. The
nttend'.ng physician wns often professionally   prevented   fiom     reporting

furthei on the case. And he knew of
four doctors who were informed by
| he friends of those they were attend-
I ing that if the patient got any worse
they would let the doctor know. In
regard to genuine enses of smallpox
he, as a physician, would simply report it to the health officer and would !Tile GOnSOlldfltlon Of a Num-
not go bank again.
Alderman   Selou.��� "Did     I   under-1
stand you to   say   that in   a   genuine |
case of smallpox that yon   would   not
go back?"
Dr. Hall replied that he certainly
would not go buck, even if it were
his wealthiest patient and no modi-
eal practitioner could afford to do so.
as his practice would very soon be
confined to a solitary patient, and
there was nothing in the by-law to
compel them to do so.
The mayor enquired if the physician reporting the ease definitely stated that he was not attending the case
if that would not improve the situation.
Dr. Hull stated that they were not
always .ure, citing cases from his
own practice to bear   out   his   point.
He further suggested that except iu
cases of smallpox, nnd the more virulent types of fever that if they were
quarantined upstairs that thc locnl
health regulations would not entail
such-hardships as under the present
conditions many people conceal the
cases in their own families.
Alderman Hamilton enquired if all
oases reported were under quarantine,
Dr. Hnll���"No not all."
Alderman Hamilton���"Some hnve
been quarantined."
Dr. Hall���"Yes."
Alderman Gillett asked how he accounted "for that.
Mayor Fletcher��� "Have any cases
been reported in writing which have
not been quarantined?''
��� Dr. Hall-*-" Yes. The cases so far
had only been of n very mild chnr-
ncter, but nt any time 'cases might develop into malignant types."
The mayor stated that in those
cases where they neglected to call in
the physician or report-to the health
officer they were liable to n fine.
��� Alderman Irving asked if tbo Graham case had really been one of scarlet'fever.
Dr. Hall replied that ho was not
.uro if it was or not.
Alderman Irving���"Had the health
officer cnlled?"
Dr. Hnll���"I do not know."
Considerable discussion of a similar character took place, when Alderman Patterson suggested that the doctors all meet and say what they wanted and report to the council.
The mayor agreed with the pronosal
that they all meet and decide what
was wrong. When it was all simmered down it meant that the health
officer had certain duties to pot-form
a nd they bad bettor have the matter
settled as to what was right or wrong.
Dr. Hall thought that the local
board of health should be willing to
adopt what a majority cf the physicians were in favor of.
Mayor Fletcher said that a way out
the difficulty would be for them to
meet the health olllcer nnd draw up
local regulations, which they did not
at present possess but which they
had power to mako, and tbat the locnl
board of health adjourn and meet
again at an em l.v date. After some
further discussion it wns decided
that the council ndjourn until after n
conference of the medical men, when
It will meet, to consider with the
health olllcer the i-ecomineudatiouii.
The most important mutter before
the council, before discussing the
above, was the reading a first and second time of by-law No. UU, the objuet
of which in brief is for the purpose of
opening, widening, extending, prolonging, constructing or reconstructing, or altering streets where the
whole cost of thu imprvement is assessed against the property fronting
or abutting upon the street or portion
of street to be opened, etc., and the
owners of the land to be taken for
such opening, widening, etc., must
dedicate thc same to the city free of
cost.
The by-law also provides that after
a certain day to be fixed by the council that all futuro expenditure in the
city of Nolson for the several classes
of Improvements, shall be by special
assessment of the property benefitted
and not exempt by law from assessment provided that In any case the
council affirms by a two-third vote
that thc work undertaken benefits the
municipality at lntgc, etc.

Phoenix, H. C., May 27.���Organization of the Granby Consolidated
Mining Smelting A Power company,
limited, with a capital of 815,000, -
ODD is now complete. The final meeting of tbe shareholders to ratify the
plan of consolidation was held here
yesterday being the last of the several
required by law. George W. Wooster,
treasurer and also' liquidator of the
old company, drove up from Grand
Forks, nccompnnled by H. N. Uiiilnr.
of the Grand Forks office,to be present

capital 81,500,000; Grey Eagle Gold
Mining company, limited, capital,81,-
500,000; and Granby Consolidated Mining A Smelting company, limited,
capital 8900,000. All but the Old Ironsides company aro British Columbia
corporations, thnt having been organ
ized in the slate of Washington. Of
the mnny shareholders in the four
old companies there was not a single
dissenting vote when n pioposition to
consolidate the several corporations
was formally laid before them and1 its
objeetB explained.
In addition to the smelter, water
power and realty owned at Grand
Forks, the new company comes into
possession of the following ten crown
granted claims In this camp: Old
Ironsides, Victoria, Fourth of July,
Aetna, Phoenix, Knob Hill, Grey1
Eagle, Hanner, Tip Top and Triangle.
The properties are all in one huge
block adjoining each other, and are
worked with power from two 10 drill
Rand duplex air compreEsors. Tenders
are now being received for an additional 40 drill compressor to be installed some time this year and to be
used in connection with a new five
compartment shaft. More work hns'
been done on these properties than'
on any other group of mines in the
Boundary, and up to date since last
August over 150,0 tons of ore have
boon shipped.
WORK ON THE ALICE   MINE
Promising Showings  on   Silver-Lead
Property nt Cteston.
The management of the Alice mine
report lhat the lodge has been cut at
thc 250 foot level, and proves to be of
as good value us at thc 100 foot level,
and somo three feet wide. The ore is
silver-lead, some running as high as
HO per cent, lead with silver values of
from 2�� to 25 ounces to the ton. The
company under the management of
T. tl. Proctor of Nelson, with J. Hudson as fin einan at the mi no, havo systematically developed this properly
for tho last six months, having completed some Slid feet of tunnelling
since starting. Tho lower tunnel, just
completed, is a crosscut about OOfl feet
in length, and tapped the vein Bt 250
feet from the surface A large body
of ore is now blocked out and everything being made ready for stuping.
A tramway will be erected In the near
future to the Crow's Nest railway.
The government havo promised to
help in the completion of the wagon
road io tho mine from Creston, which
will tap several other mining properties. An expenditure of a thousand
dollars will be needed for thU.
The serious drop In thc price of lend
during tlie last few months may curtail tbo shipment of ore for the present but the Alice should soon be on
the shipping list, as the ore is said to
be of the highest of lead ore, and
free from /.inc.
The company have other properties
under development, but not ns fai ad-
avneed as thc Alice. It whs floated a

The following will have special interest for ninny in Nelson at this
time. It is taken from an exchange:
"Ii has always been supposed that an
agreement, such as that for early
closing among the merchants, could
be broken at will and with impunity
by any one of them. This belief is
undoubtedly responsible for many
failures to engage in an early closing
movement. A case which has just
been decided by the Kentucky Court
of Appeals, however, shows that the
law regards such "contract entirely
legal, and capable of being enforced
jtt.t as any other contract. The case
was interesting. The merchants of a
certaiu town agreed to close at 0.30
in the evening from May 15 until September 1, One of the parties to the
compact afterward changed his mind,
and notified the others that after n
certain date he should do business in
the evening. The other merchants
sued for an injunction and iho Court
granted it, stating thnt the conttnet
for early closing contained nil the
elements of a legal contract, and could
therefore bo enforced against all par
ties. The consideration, without
whicli no contract is legal, wns tho
mutual agreement on the part of all
theBe merchants to forego the evening's business."

The very serious chat-go of immorality has been preferred against Mr.
Hall (.nine's new novel, "The Eternal
City." It ccmes from the Lady's
Magazine, whicli has declined to publish it for that reason. Mr. George
N. Morang, the enterprising Toronto
publisher, had arranged to bring it
out in August next, slmultnncously
wilh its publication In London and
New York, and in view of this aspersion he was interviewed by a Globe
reporter, to sec to what extent his
plans might be interfered with. He
declares that it will make no difference; that the book will come out ns

sand men, or close to it, working in
the mines of thc Boundary, uml the
shipments of ore nre now over a thousand tons iter day. Tins is nn average of a ton per mull, out there are 11
goodly number woi-hing in properties
that are not shipping yut. Of the
Hi.uu,nnil tons mi-re Ilia 11 half is sunt
out of Phoenix camp, nnd nearly 01
quite hnlf of the men working in this
eeutlon nre employed in and uroiiud
Phoenix.'
We hope tlie Kosslatid pimple aro not
laughing at. us, us thc following par-
agrnph from The Miner of that town
might be taken to Indicate: "Kossland will huve its new postotHce bo-
fore the foundation of the building
granted to Nol'on is completed, unless the French contractors who aro
building the latter display more activity thun they have for the past few
months. The conttnet. for the Nolson
office was let over two mouths ngo,
and the only progress made up tn ditto
is the completion of 11 portion of the
excavations for the basement, nnd the
rains of the past few days have gone
far toward lllling up the   hole."
Alexander Newell, hondmnster of
Westminster School, who nourished
about 1640, wns the author nf the catechism and thc discoverer of bottled
heer. Such is the purport of a paragraph at present going thc rounds.
It can truly be said of Mr. Newell
that he did not live in vain,
TO SECURE MUSK OXEN.
Edmonton, May 27.���Ex-fnctor Jns.
McKinlay returns to the north country for the purpose of securing a number of live musk ox and bringing them
out to civilization. There are no
musk ox in any of thc zoological collections in the world and $10,000 a pair
is whnt thoy nre worth. Mr. McKinlay has spent between sixteen and
twenty years in the noith country and
is familiar with the habits of the
animals he seeks and with the means
employed by tho Indians to hunt and
kill them. Hnll'alo Joues and other
northern travellers have tried to so-
cure pairs of these rare beasts, but
without success. The musk ox is a
habitue of tho Ilarren Lands and
the difficulty in hunting them hns al-
way been that the hunter wns compel led to carry wood and supplies and
so was unable to go very far or stay
very long. This difficulty Mr. McKinlay will overcome. In the north
ho knows of a spot where the timber
belt extends out into the muskj ox
country. He intends to invade their
retreat at this point. He will build
a shanty, erect stnblos nnd put up
liny. Then, when winter comes, he
with his Indians, will go out after the
musk ox. When they are located nnd
the old ones killed he counts on being
able to capture the calves which he
will bring back to his stables and
feud,and keep them until spring when
they will bo floated ou a J raft across
Great Slave lake, and brought out to
civilization by Hudson's liny company boat. Mr. Mi-h'inlay expects to
be out again with his captures next
spring.

AN ENJOYABLE OUTING.
Char and   Trout   Beginning   to   Bite
Well at Outlet.
Quite a number of gentlemen from
Nelson took -advantage of the holidays just past to secure some of the
good tishing now to be had at. the
Outlet. Among the guests at the
Outlet hotel, at Procter, from Friday
to Monday, were Mr. and Mrs. T. Q
Procter, and Messrs. O'Reilly H. J.
Evans, Buchanan, Heaven and W. II
Dowsing, who between them captured
(is pounds of char, nlso u number of
fine trout. Tlie largest char reached
the handsome weight of 1 a'_ pounds.
The fishing is improving daily and
for some time now should be very
good, as the char bave just commences to run into   the Outlet.
The Outlet hotel Is now open for
the season under the able management
of Mr. and Mrs. R. .1, Daniels, The
guests were afforded much amusement by tho antics of tbe young bear
captured by some Indians n couple of
weeks ago, which is now tlie property
of Mr. Daniels.
DANUERS   OF HYPNOTISM.
Woonsocket, R. I��� Mny 27.���During
an exhibition of hypnotism given by
Prof .'rank E. Farnswoith and wife,
of Pitchburg at the local opera house,
one of tho subjects, Thomas Bolton,
also of Fitchbury, was killed. Mr.
Hullen was a member of Prof. Faros-
worth's company and wns resting between two chairs with a lion-pound
stone placed on his body, when a local blacksmith, Clifford Trask, at
tempted to break the stone with a
sledge hammer. Affer Trask had
given tlie stone two heavy blows nnd
succeeded in cracking it thc chair on
which Bolton's head rested gave way
under the weight of Ihe stone nnd the
subject fell to the floor, the stone
crushing Mr. Bolton's head almost to
a jelly. He died shortly after. Dr.
Barry working unsuccessfully toward
helping the fatally Injured man.
As soon as the accident happened.
Prof. Famsworth was placed under
arrest and Trask, having left the hall
and being very much affected by the
.sad accident, went to his boarding
bouse, where he was also shoity after
attested. Both men will be held pending an investigation.
have been recovered at the Universal
colliery in Shengheny In the Rhondda
valley, where an exp'osion occurred
last Friday morning. The gruesome
work proceeds very slowly, and many
pninful scenes arc witnessed at the
pit's mouth. King Edward has sent a
messsage of sympathy to families of
victims and has expressed his admiration at thc gallantry of the rescuers.
y FROM SILVERTON.
The Red Mountain wngon road, says
the Silvcrtonian, is now practically
assured and work will be commenced
upon it at once and rushed to completion. This road which will be u
trunk line will connect Silverton with
all tbe Rod Mountain and Silver
Band Bhsin properties. With the
completion of this road tho Miner-
(Iravos syndicate will resume work
upon tho Rockland mine, machinery
will he installed and the mine properly developed. During the week the
Hewitt Mining company, of this
place, acquired the interests held by
A. S. Reed, in the lUncon and ftiu-
con fraction mineral claims, thus giving them title to the whole of the
property. These two claims lie below and adjoin the Hewett claim and
by this recent purchase the company
now owns over 1,000 feet of the Hewitt vein.
RAISING    TROUT   AN   INDUSTRY.
Anaconda, May 27.���Thc raising of
trout is becoming a popular industry
around Anaconda, and it is becoming
so tbat almost any time of the year a
person going to a restaurant for a
meal can have a good big member of
the finny tribe served up on his plate.
C. A. Barker and C. VV. Atwuter,
two of this city's well known citizens, have commenced building a
hatchery out on Clear cteck on a large
scale, whicli they expect will be about
the llnest to be found anywhere in the
west.
This murning the work of building
two Inrge ponds by means of the
hydraulic process was begun. Instoad
of removing dirt by hand or with
scrapers nnd teams it is being done by
hydraulics.
Only two ponds will be built this
year. Tlie intention is to stock them
up right away, and when the spawning season comes on next year another will be built a little lower down,
in which tiie larger flab will be placed. The trout aro possessed of cannibalistic traits and therefore it is necessary to keep tho smaller ones separated from the larger. This is done
by means of a succession of ponds,
and enables the owners to have fish
of almost any size ut any time of the
season.

FLOWER THIF.VBS-
During the past week many of Ihe
residents of Stanley street particularly
have been annoyed by the depreda
tions of the (lower thitf or thieves.
The number of valuable plants that
have been taken Is surprising. On the
24th the garden of Captain Troup's
house was entered and every rose bush
was dug up and carted away on a
wheel barrow. Captain McMorris
was.also a loser, a large number of
choice plants, winch had been set out
on the verandah over night having
been taken. The thieves seem to be
possessed of good taste and discrimination in their choice of plants, care
ally picking out the best from eucl
garden tbey visit.
dered. He claimed that the city engineer was already overworked and that
to carry out the provisions of tha bylaw tbey would have to engage more
help for the city engineer and also
hire solicitor to undertake the legal
work of it. Thirdly the whole by-law
was full of unequalities, by asaing
ratepayers to pay half the tax. Similar systems had been tried in other
places which had developed endless
and costly litigation. So far as he
could see it had not one redeeming
point about it and he thought it
would be very niiuli better to drop it.
Mayor Fletcher stated that nearly
every city in Canada was working on
the same system of local improvement
by-law today,and did not know of on-
city but what bad come down to this
matter of incurring expenses in pull
ing up pavements, etc. ' And there
was no reason why in the outlying
districts tlie cost of such impiovementa
should not fall on those most benefitted.
Home further discussion arose on the
matter when it was finally decided to
read the by-law and reserve the discussion on it until the next meeting
and form into a committee of the
whole and go into the discussion of it
with the city solicitor.
The report of the city assessor, pub
lisbe.d iu another column was read by
the city clerk and the date of the
court of revision was fixed for July
10th at 10 o'clock, and the mayor and
Aldermen Hamilton, Gillett, Irving,
and Patterson were appointed as the
court of revision   for lhat occasion.
Tenders for e'.eotric light poles were
received from eight contractors, but
as their tenders varied from H._ .to 11
cents per foot without in every case
specifying as the exact nature of their
tender the matter was referred to the
lire, water and light committee.
The finance committee report for
the payment of accounts amounting to
$.9. was authorized to be paid.
Hoover street1 between Stanley
and Ward, streets, waa ordered to
be graded at a cost not exceeding 8. 00
and on Victoria stieet between Hendryx and Cedar-al cost not exceeding
.125. Catch basins were authoiised
to be put in on Silica street|between
Hendryx and Ward streets and on the
corner of Vernon   streot,   and   Ward.
The Bum of 825 was also voted for
the building,of a horse kraal.
A now barrow   was ordered   or  the
street scavenger and under  this head
ing the mutter was   discussed  regarding the custom of some   of   the   store
keepers of sweeping their dust and pa
pops on to the street.    Ihe   mayor intimated that the  police have been in
struotcd to notify the parties guilty of
this practice.

New York, May 27.���A. Ho.telman.
general superintendent of the trans-
Siberian railroads and assistant division superintendent of the nineteen
steamships connected with tho railroad service in and around Port Ar"
tl'ur, has had an important conference with E. H. Barriman. Mr.
Bostelman represents tbe Russian government in a semi-official way, and
his mission in New York is understood to be a traffic arrangement with
the Union Pacific lines aud the steamships in this country controlled by the
Union Pacific.
Mr. Bostelman said last night
there was little hope far speedy connection between San Francisco and
Chinese ports until the freight rate of
811 a ton is lowered.' It is understood that he and Mr. llarriman went
over the subject fully and that Mr.
Bostelman told Mr. llarriman that the
Russian government desired the most
cordial relations between its railroads
and steamship lines and the lines
leading to the Pacific seaboard.
Mr. Hostelman also saw men ideuti
tied with the Northern Pacific In   this
city     and   made    particular   Inquiry
about   the great freight ships  being
built for that company  at New   Lon
don.
Mr. Bostelman said:
"I will have to be excused from
discussing official affairs. We are
doing nicely'with the railroad across
Siberia and Manchuria, and liupe to
have an all-rail route within the next
15 months."
