Makes the  Most Wonderful
Discovery of Modern
He Received Electrical Signals Across the Atlantic.
St. John, Nfld., Dec. 14.���Signor
Marconi informs tbe correspondent of
tlie Associated Press that he has received wireless messages from a station in Cornwall, England, solving
the problem of s gnalling across the
Atlantic ocean without wires.
lie explains that before leaving
England he had made his plans or
accomplishing thn result, or while
his primary object was to communi
cate v. ith oean liners in miducean, he
also hoped to succeed in attaining the
wonderful scientific achievement of
wireless telegraphy across the Atlantic, Signor Marconi's station in
Cornwall is most powerful. He
possesses an electric force generated
there a hundred times greater than at
his ordinary stations. Before he left
England he arranged with the electrician in cbaige of tbe station, which
is located at Poldbu.to begin sending
signals daily after a certain date,
whicb signor Marconi would cable
him upon perfecting his arrangement
here. Signor Marconi arrived here a
week ago and seleoted Signal hill at
the entrance to tbe Harbor as an experimenting station, and moved his
equipment there. Last Monday he
cabled the I'oUilm station to begin
sending signals at 3 p.m. daily and to
continue until 0 p. m. These hours
being respectively 11.30 a.m. and 2*30
p. in. St. John time. During these
liouis on Wednesday Signnr Marconi
elevated a kite with an aerial wir^
ray means of which signals are sent
or received. He remained at the recorder attached to tlie receiving apparatus, and to his profound satisfaction, signals were received by him nt
intervals, according to the programme
arranged previously with the operator
at I'oldhu. These signals consisted of
repenting at intervals the letter "S"
which in Marconi's code is made by
three dots or quick strokes. This signal was repeated so frequently and
aocording to the detailed plan arranged to provide safeguards against
possibility of a mistake that Signor
Marconi was satisfied thai it was a
genuine transmission from England.
Again on Thursday, during the same
hours, the kite was elevated and the
same signals were renewed. This
made the assurance so complete that
Signor Marconi cabled to his principals in England and also informed
the Governor of Newfoundland, Sir
Cavendish Boyle, who apprised the
British cabinet of the success of the
Signor Marconi, though satisfied of
tbe genuineness of the signuls and
that he has suocceded in his attempts
to establish communication across the
Atlantic ocean without the aid of
wires, emphasises the fact that the
system is jet only in an embryonic
"'��gc, but that the possibility of its
ultimate development is demonstrated
by tlie success of of the present experiments, with incomplete and imperfect
apparatus, as the singals oan only be
received by the most sensitive adjustment and Signor Marconi is working
under great difficulties owing to thc
conditions prevailing here. The
Cornwall coast ia 1700 miles from St.
Johns, In view ef the success attend-
lnK these trials, Signor Marconi will
-'or the present disregard the matter
o* communication with the trans-
Atlantic steamers. He will return to
England next week and will conduct
tlic experiments from Poldhu himself.
"8 explains that with great electrical
power theie it will enable him to
send more effective signals. He will
undertake this work himself leaving
assistants here to erect a mast and revive hia signals as he forwards them.
is not possible lo send   return   sig
nals from here until a powerful electric battery shall have been installed.
Sir Robert Bond, premier of Newfoundland, offers Signor Marconi
ev��ry facility within the power of the
colonial government for the carrying
��"t of his plans.
Secretary   Long   Now   Has   It   Before
Him Por Review.
Washington. Dec. 14.���The secretary
of the navy now has before him fc
review, the report of the court of
inquiry in the Schley case He is
naturally taking time to do this care
fully so that immediate action is not
expected. Meanwhile the couri is
technically in session and will remain
bo until dissolved by order of Secretary Long, who convened it.
The question has been raised since
the appearance of the two reports in
print, how far Admiral Dewey, the
president,.subscribed to the opinions
expressed in the first report and in the
findings by nppending his signature,
that signature being required of him
apparent ly by the regulation above
quoted, regardless of his individual
opinion. In response lo inquiry on
this point, the judge advocate general
of the navy sayB: According to the
naval practice Admiral Dewey, by
affixing his signature to the report of
the court of inquiry in the case of
Rear Admiral Schley, expresses full
concurrence in all the findings of fact
and iu all the opinions reached by
couri except those with respect to
which he has in term signified dissent
in his minority.
Opinion in the senate is divided as
to the probability of a congressional
investigation of the Schley controversy but is upon the whole against
the probability of such a course. A
majority of the Republican senators
appear to be adverse to the reopening
of the question and those of this view
include the friends of Admiral

London, Dec. 14.���Reporting to the
war oflioe from Pretoria, under date of
yesterday, Lord Kitchener says:
"Bruce Hamilton after a loDg night
march surprised Piet Viljoen's laager

Bonds Must Be Changed to Cash Says
Washington, Dec. 14.���It is said to
be denfinitely decided that President
Roosevelt will not accept the offer of
Andrew Carnegie of $10,000,000 of
bonds of the United States Steel Corporation for the purpose of founding
an institution for higher education in
this city. The views of prominent
senators and representatives, as they
have oeen given to the president, are
practiaally unanimous against the
acceptance of the offer in its present
shape, but the president, however, is
very hopeful that an adjustment can
be made by which Mr. Carnegie will
convert the bonds which be tendered
into cash or United States bonds.
New York, Dec. 14.���Andrew Carnegie today ou being asked about his
$10,000,000 gift offered to the government for a national university said:
That Washington matter will come
ont all right. If 1 had to sell those
bonds myself, I would have no trouble
in getting the money for them. There
will be no trouble about the matter,
mark my words."
New York, Dec. 14.���Andrew Carnegie was thc principal speaker today
at the laying of the corner stone of
the new High School of Commerce.
This is the first free High School of
Commerce in this country. Mi. Carnegie was very warmly received and
said in part: This school is the
pioneer high school ot eommerce in
New York, or in tho country, and it
owes its creation to the fact that the
United States has become the leading
commercial nation in export of its
products, even Great Britain being
now second The exports of ita agricultural products have long been flrst
among the nations, but recently we
have entered into competition with
them in manufactmed articles wbiob
we formerly had to import for our
own wants.

New York, Dec. 14,���The admiralty
authorities are being urged to make
an effort to seoure the servises of
Canadians and Australians as officers
in the King's navy, so that the consciousness tbat the navy is au Imperial service should be fostered, says
a despatch to the Tribune, from
Lonon. It argued that the position of
the navy as the foundation bulwark of
the British empire wonld be better
understood in both Great Britain and
the colonies if the admiral commanding in the Mediterranean was an Australian and the admiral commanding
the future north sea squadron, a
New York, Dec 14.���The London
correspondent of the Tribune says it
s stated that an important agreement
will shortly be arrived at in connection with the proposed fast mail service to Canada. Correspondence is
now proceeding between the Dominion
authorties and the Colonial office on
the subject and it is understood that
the long standing difficulty as to the
proportion of the subsidy to bo borne
by the Imperial government will be
disposed of by the Dominion government's contribution upon condition
that tbe contractors give special facilities far carrying Canadian dairy and
other products for the home   markets.

Rapids in northern Minnesota.
It is Raging in Wyoming and Shows
No Abatement Signs.
Cheyenne, Dec, 14.���The storm
raging in the southern part of Wyoming for the past 48 hours shows nn
disposition to abate. The temperature
is below zero with a wind blowing
that onts to the marrow. Several
herders have been frozen to death in
efforts to gather scattered bands of
sheep. The loss of sheep in Red
Desert cannot be estimated, as the
flocks are aeattered to the four winds.
Snow plows bave been working at the
most threatening points on the Union
Pacific and though tbe truck has been
kapt open, trsins are delayed from 6
to 7 hours. The stage between klnako
river and Rawlins became lost last
night and [or several hours the passengers were compeled to walk. One
man had bis feet so badly frozen that
amputation was necessary. A snow

below zero tonight.
Fort Worth, Dec. 14.���Tbe blizzard
prevailing over the Panhandle of
Texas will very probably prove a disastrous one tu the cattlemen. There
has been a long dry spell and feed has
been soarce and high, preventing any
great amount of provision for wintering the cattle. The entire section is
covered with snow, and, if it stayj on
the ground lor any length of time, the
cattle not in prime condition will die
by hundreds.

Under     the    heading "Overloading
colliers^'     the    Times   this    evening
says:     "Considerable   comment was
heard this mnrni-ig in shipping circles
on the  overloading   of ships.     On al
British steamers there   is  a   Plimsoll
mark   on   the   side  of   tbe vessel   to
determine   tbe   amount of cargo   they
shall   carry   io   winter, as also in the
summer  time,     but on tbe Ameiican
craft,    it   is   stated, there is no  suoh
gauge and result   is that liberties  are
frequently   taken   in the loading of a
ship.     It   is   now  asserted   that  the
Mattewan,   whicb it appears now has
gone to the bottom,   was  overloaded,
but   it   is   known   tbat  she carried a
very heavy  cargo  and  it is said  that

noteworthy fact tbat the large colliers

There is no certainty that tbe estimate of City Engineer MeCulloch that
tbe installing of a 1,000-horse power
electrical plant for the muni:palty
wuuld not cost considerably over $150, -
000. Tbis would be at the rate of
only $l.ri0 per horse power. The cost
of installation per horse power is less
in some places, but this is where the
price of labor and materials are much
smaller than they are here.
The cost of installation on
this continent of first class plants
varies from 8150 to $000 per horse
power and the average is about $200.
Take the average cost and the city
plant would probably be that much.
and it would   cost   $200,000.
For power additional machinery
should bo supplied in the shape of
transformers, and Mr. MoCulloch's
estimate m.iln-s no mention of this
extra plant, nor does it provide for
duplicate machinery in case of unci
dents. To install extra and duplicate
plant and a second pole line, so as to
guard against shut downs, consequent
on breakdowns, $50,000 additional
would be required. Included in this
would be an additional generator at
the falls and different sets of transformers both at the falls and at the
city sub station.
Supposing, for instance, the city
wished to supply the Tramway com
pany with porter this would necessi
tate the expenditure of about $8,000
for suitable transformers. At present
the Tramway company gets its power
in the form of an alternating current
of 2,300 volt* from Bonnlngton Falls.
Tbis is delivxrcd at 20,000 volts and
Is reduced by transformers owned by
the West Kootenay company. The
power enters a motive generator and
Is transformed into the direct current
necessary for the propulsion ol electric
cars. The motive generator is the
property of the Tramway company
and cost S18.000.
In view of tne fact that the city
would come very nearly to the limit
of its borrowing powers, if it should
elect to borrow the 8150,000 under the
electric bylaw, would it be businesslike to think of undertaking the construction of the plant until it is absolutely eertaiu that the amount it is
proposed to raise would cover the oost
of an efficient and up-to-date plant?
This is a question which all tbe ratepayers should pondjr over. Many
cities have received great setbacks
through the reckless expendture ot
publio money in the earlier stages of
their existence and in that way driven
capital awav instead of entioing it.
The cost of the proposed plant for the
city has not been figured out close
enough to justify embarking in the
enterprise until a more careful esti
mate has been made. Anotner pertinent question is: Are the times auspicious for the undertaking of au enterprise which will cost so much
money? Pay day will come and
should there not be an improvement
in the times and an increase in the
size and importance of the city, the
payment of the principal and intcr-
eit would be quite a burden.
��as the senloi officer of Santiago, ln
absolute command and entitled to the
credit due for the glorious victory
whioh resulted in tbe total destruction
of the Spanish ships, the public of
the United States, except those few
vho are admirers of \dmiral Sampson, will heartily agree. The object
ot the massing of tbe fleet off Santiago was to destroy the Spanish fleet
and thia was done by Rear Admiral
Schley and so thoroughly tbat not a
single Spanish vessel escaped. Surely
this ought to satisfy the most exacting. The truth of the matter is that
Admiral Sampson was a little late In
arriving at tbe scene of action
and in order to take away the credit
fiom Rear Admiral Schley showed
that he had broken some ot the bonds
of red tape which the naval department at Washington had tried to bind
him. The verdict of mankind will
be like that ot Admiral Dewey, however, that Rear Admiral Schley is
entitled to the credit for destroying
the Spanish fleet after it steamed out
of the harbor of Satlago and was shot
to pieces by the vessel under his command. It was Schley's duty to destroy the Spanish fleet and he succeeded in performing it.
There would have been just us
much sense in trying Admiral Nelson,
for bis action at Che Battle of Copenhagen. He was hotly engaged with
tbe enemy when the admiral, bis
superior officer, signalled for bim to
witbdaw his ships and retreat.
Nelson felt that he could win and
putting his telescope to his blind eye
declared that he oould not read the
signal. The fight was kept up by
Nelson, and one of the greatest naval
battles in English history won
through his bravery and his refusal to
obey orders. Bad Admiral Nelson
been in the American navy be would
probably have been tried and condemned for disobeying the orders,
but the English people and Nelson's
superior officer never thought of
doing so foolish a thing.
Admiral Dewey already has many
admirers among tbe American people
and his minority verdict, will greatly
increase his popularity. If he was a
dangerous candidate for president
shortly after the battle of Manila he
ib now more to be feared than ever by
the politicans.
The report of thn naval tribunal
whioh inquired into tlic conduct of
Rear-Admiral Schley during thc Santiago oampaign, which has just been

The London Times is always dignified and in replying to the feeling of
antagonism whieh bad beeu raised in
Germany by the utterances of Hon.
Joseph Chambelairi, concerning the
conduct of the GermauB during the
Franco-Prussian war, it said: "We
must beg to remind the Germans that
we claim an equal right to guard our
own honor and to resent accusations
founded upon the most hateful and
personal calumnies, disseminated
with a deliberate persistence inexplicable in a friendly community. We
hope the German people and government will understand that the British
nation will not acquiesce in any impeachment of the honor of our gal
lant soldier, which is as dear to us aB
is that of tbe German army to the
German nations."
The text of the bill providing for the
building of the Panama canal was
published in this papei yesterday and
it may be said to be fully before Congress. The bill provides that not
more than 8180,000,000 shall be spent
on its construction. The expenditure
ot the money is placed in the hands of
tho president; tt will, therefore, be
honestly disbursed, and there is no
doubt that the canal will be constructed. It is a gigantic undertaking, but still a small one when compared with the wealth and sire of the
American republic. The completion of
this waterway will be of as much
benefit to British Columbia as it will
to Washington and Oregon, the states
bordering on the ooast to the south of
this province. It will just about ont
in half the journey to the leading
markets of the world and enlarge our
market and increase the price of all
the commodities whioh we have for
export. It will raise valueof real estate
and this will be especially the oase
with good farming and timber lands,
which are not too far from tbe ooast.
It will divert some ofthe through
trade from the Orient, as when the
waterway is finished steamers trading
between Europe and China will go
via Panama, but this will be made up
for by the closeness to whioh it will
bring this province to markets that
can readily absorb all our surplus
products. The completion of the
canal should witness, therefore, con-
temporaneouly a boom of considerable magnitude in British   Columbia.
The petition by creditors for the

an extremely tempting reorganization
scheme as a bait, and it might have,
been supposed that shareholders would ,

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
There is nothing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in tbe worst
oases.    It cures when nil else fails.
The Rev. O F. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,

tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I wus a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat and nslhmn (or ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your ndvertieemeut for the cure ot
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you had overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.

wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been afflcted with spasmodic asthma for thr- past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottlo or Asthinalen��.
My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and ehe is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflioted with tbis distressing disuase.

The recent rise in tbe price of platinum from $14 to $21 an ounce has
directed the atteation ol prospectors
and mining men to this comparatively
rate mineral. The demand for it has
(frown very ripldly in the arts, th;
commonest uses being in the waking
of incandescent light globes and for
oruoibles. The whole production of
this mineral thronghont tbe world
does not amount to twelve tone a
year and as Its specific gravity is 21.4b
While that of gold is only 18 it will
be seen that the quantity is very
Platinum has been found in Rritish
Columbia in small quantities and a
little of it has been markettcd. Mr.
McKillop, thc assayor says that the
only time he came on it was in some
black sand brought to him from the
fcimilkarneen. It there oocurred in
small scales with an occasional^nngget
about the size of a small pea with
rounded corners.
On looking up some text books and
from his knowledge of it Mr. Killop
stated that the chief source of it was
in the Ural district, Russia, where it
is washed by hand from the alluvial
sands ol the river. Ocasionally a
little gold is found with it there.
Borneo produces about from 600 to
SOU pounds a year and some is got in
Brazil. Small quantities have also
been found in many other parts of
the world such as Australia, New
Zealand, and Sou'li America, California and Canada. The prospectors
of Cariboo fouod it among the placer
gold in the curly days but did not
recognize it.
It is usnally found in alluvial diggings and he srouts the suggestion
that it is likely to be found in payable quantities in rock.
In Ural tt Is found on crome iron
In a serpentine rock, in Brazil it is
found with gold in a syenite formation, and as a brilliant tin white sand
intermingled with magnetic and
copper pyrites at Sudbury, Ontario.
All of these rocks are found in British Columbia but to look for lt among
these rocks would be a discouraging
task. Its occurrence id dolomite
heavy spar, barita and fahl ore explains its being found in placer
Mr. McKillop stated that platinum
would be easily overlooked in making
an assay as it alloys with silver and
lead. Should it come out iu the button and in a less proportion than two
and one-half to one and the button be
dissolved in nitric acid for gold the
platinum would dissolve with the silver aiid would not manifest itself.
He therefore thinks that the most
probable means of finding it is in the
black sand in placers, where it ia
quite distinguishaDle from thc sand
by its brighter oolor.
Ono of the most important events
in the history of this camp, and Ferguson in particular, is soon to materialize. N C. Wood of Minneapolis,
representing Chas. W. McCrossan, has
arrived in town, to make ready for
the receptiou of the Vulcan furnace
plant which is now on the way irom
San Francisco to this place, says the
Lardeau Eagle. The smelter will oc
bollt on thc Daney addition, just east
of R. Koran's residence, overlooking
the banks of the north fork of Lardeau
ctreek only some 500 yurds from the
business centre of the town. The
order for lumter for the building was
placed with the local saw mUl on
Monday evening. The plans call for
a building 85x00, two stories high. A
wagon road up thc hill to the high
side of the smelter will also be built.
The work will be done by day labor.
Mr. Wood expects to see the plant in
operation 40 days after its arrival
here. Mr. McCrossan who has been in
'Frisco to seethe plant shipped, is
expected here his week, with a com
petent man from thc factory to instal
and take charge of the plant. The
irelghters will ruth the work as hurriedly as possible. As the Eagle has )

a capacity of reducing 30 tons of ore
to matte per day. Add what was more
than many expected, Mr. Wood in
forms the Eagle that their company
will buy the nre on the spot, giving
all values to the ore seller. The re
suit of this policy on the part of the
company can scarcely be realized.
The man with one ton of ore can turn
it into money as quickly as the large
mine owner. The new company
known ai "The Lardeau Smelting
and Refining company of British
Columbia, " have plenty of money to
back them up in their undertaking
and the Eagle wishes them every

not be in opcraion for about a month
for the reason that the arrival of the

There are three of these wheels which
will furnish the power for the concentrator. While here yesterday he learned
that they had just been shipped.

Editor Miner,���The question of
Kelson City ligtiHng is areitted by all
citizens to be a very serious it not
obscure question.
The general opinion appears to be
that the defeated bylaw failed on account of the obscurity of some of its
i-isions! Had it coutained one
clause namely to take not less than
100 and not ovor 200 h. p , it, iu all
proh:iiblity would have oarried.
Is there no way whereby a simple
contract upon these lines could be
entered into at once. Afcer this has
been done time will be afforded our
worthy city engineer to carefully
check over his figures, when the site
is actnally fixed upou hy which time
���lso business may be better and a better price obtainable for city bonds.
At present it appears even doubtful
whether the bonds could be sold at
,|1, It is also B serious question as to
now an extra indebtedness of $12,000
a year is going to affect the value of
reiil estate and buildings. The passing of the $150,000 bylaw will not
improve our light for at least twelve
months; what are we going to do
now. Meanwhile we are paying for
Hi candle power and getting about
eight candle power; this is a rank
Imposition on the ratepayeis and it is
surprising that laTge and small consumers alike do not refuse to pay for
what they do not get.
Christmas trade is generally a good
one. What do the storekeepers suffer
from poor light���what are we all
Buffering���heorkeu to tbe language

spurious coins or the issuers of forged
bills���but then the ways of these gentry aie like Bret Harte's Chinamen,
known as "v*ays that are dark end
tricks that aro vain.' We had almost
overlooked the opticians and eye
doctors! It )b stated that the passing
ol tne blyaw will moan lots of money
spent in Nelson. Um! Yes, perhaps,
after the money is borrowed aud the
plans and specifications prepared and
the weather permits of work being

Our Sale has been a decided success^ so much so that it has evidently
hiTsOTieof our competitors hard who are advertising discount sales
ranging from 10 to 50 per cent., which means that on good staple
goods you only get a 10 per cent  rebate.
Now we bought the stock we are at present selling, at a low rate on
the dollar, and we are letting everything go at and under wholesale
cost, which means a discount of so per cent, and over on all goods.
The clothing we bought in this stock is high-class, manufactured by
some of the largest firms in  the  Dominion.    Our stock consists  of
Clothing, Gent's Furnishings, Hats, Boots, Shoes,

Reinenber, the nerves transverse
the entire body, and when tbey are
ont of order, convey their trouble to
some one or more parts. No living
being can tell just where the nerves
will deposit the trouble, but It is certain they will plate it somewhere in
one or more organs.
Iu some cases disease is slowly bnilt
np, foi instance, in the kidneys, or
in thc brain, or perhaps in the
bowels.and docs not make any violent
show for weeks or months, but lt is

tbat when enough diseased cells are
built to make a showing, tbe tumble
Is so far gone that many times it is

The only safe pathway for anyone
who cares for health, is to throw ont
the poisonous drug coffee as bop-1 no

If you are a Coffee Drinker examine
yourself very carefully indeed. It
will pay you big returns for thc examination.
If you find that in the weeks and
months past you have been suffering
small or great aches or ails anwyhere
io the body, no matter whether in the
leg, body, heart, or head, you may
depend upon it that the root uf tbe
trouble is an unbalanced, disordered
nervous system, caused wholly or in
greater part hy ooffee drinking,
disease, shown by aches or ails, or
uncomfortable feelings anywhere in
the body.
Highly organized psople are distinctly poisoned by coffee and think
it hard to give up the drug (for it is a
drug habit). It is really no task
whatever to rid one's self of coffee; if
one will take on Postum Food Coffee,
the result of tbe change will be so
pleasing in point of good, healthy,
comfortable, feeling, that one is well
repaid, particularly when there Is no
self denial for the taste of Post.im
Food Coffee is so clearly marked and
delicious when it is properly prepared
(and lhat is easy), that the ohange
from the old   coffee   is not   noticeable
Stop   disease   when it is small   and
you are   able to sotp it.    If you allow
it   to  grow    It     will    master     you.
