Railway Company Pays $50.-
000 and Injunction Is
Dropped.
(SPECIAL TO THN MINEIM
Orand Forks, April 10.���As the
result of a deal, whieh was closed here
today the induction proceedings instituted in the Supreme court to restrain
the Great Northern railway from
crossing the ranch of John A. Manly,
live miles below this city, have b>en
dropped,
The land in question is vested in
the Vale Hotel Co., whose directors
adopted a resolution agreeing to dispose of the tract comprising 1,000
acres, the purchaser being the railway
company, and the compensation $r,0, ���
000. After the papers had Been signed
by the contracting parties, the purchase money was depcsited in the
Eastern Township's bank here to the
credit of the vendor. All obstacles to
the immediate extension ot the road
into Republic have beeu now removed.
Two weeks will probably be occupied
in excavating a cut un the Manly
property. The settlement just effected
disposed of one of tbe knottiest problems over encountered by J.J.Hill.
After the Yale Hotel company had
obtained an interim injunction restraining the railway from crossing
tne petitioner's lands, counsel for tbe
Great Northern \ppoaled to the full
court on a technicality, nnd on this it
was not sustained, tbe court ordering
the ease back to the trial judge for
hearing on the merits. The case was
pending when the settlement above
outlined was reached. Meantime the
Grand Forks Board of Trade having
taken up the matter and having
adopted resolutions, Chas. Curaings,
chairman of the railway committee cf
the hoard, proceeded to St. Paul. Ab
a result of his interviews with President Ilil'. several wesks ago Mr. Cuin-
ings returned to Grand Furks with
authority to negotiate a settlement.
The papers were signed in his presence this afternoon. Speculation
already is rife respecting the use Mr.
Uill will make of the ranch.
The formal opening of the Republic
and Grand Forks railway will take
place on Saturday next without fall.
The tracklayers laid two and one-half
miles of track today, rail head tonight
being Ave miles from Republic. Two
shifts are at work and the entire road
will he completed late tomoriow
night.
NORTH FORK COAL.
Preparations Under Way to Explore
tho Ground Thoroughly.
(SPECIAL TO TUB MIMlll.l
Grand Fonts, April 10.���Tho British
Columbia Coal Co., Ltd., which has
acquired all the coal locations on tho
north fork of Kettle river, will undertake a vigorous policy of development
during the coming season. As soon
as the snow disappears a diamond
drill plant will be installed. It is the
intention of the directors to lose no
time in opening up the eoal measures,
aud ample capital will he available
for tbe purpose. A good wagon road
extends from Grand Forks to a point
85 miles lrom the coal fields, and it is
oxpected that the provincial government will grant an appropriation for
the completion   of   the   road   for   the
remainder of tin' distance.
The existence of eoal is no longer
regarded as problematical; nil that
temains to be done is to determine tne
extent and thickness of the various
ledges. Tho directors tfel confident
that inside of twelve months North
Fork coal will be shipped to Grand
Forks by rail. Two veins, three and
six feet wide respectively, have been
uncovered, while the surface showings
at other points on the SO,OOl) acres
controlled by the oompany are regarded as encouraging. With the diamond
drill it is proposed to install, absolute tests as to the extent aud permanency of the seams will soon he determined. Several thousand pounds of
the coal was brought here on a pack
train last fall. An analysis at tbe
Granby smelter g��ve tbe following
return: Fixed carbon, 7r>.3 per cent, ;
volatile matter, 22.0 per cent.; ash,
.'1.7 per cent.
A sample sent to the government
assay otlice, Victoria gave this result:
Fixed carbon 73.5 por oent.; volatile
matter, 18.7 per_ceut. and moisture,
1.8   per cent.
From this showing alone tbe north
fork coal is equal in quality to the.
product of the Crow's Nest mines. It
is of the bituminous variety and
admirably adapted for making coke.
If the nisoovery should prove as important as is anticipated, tho coal aud
coke from the north fork would, other
conditions being equal, he able to
displace the Crow's Nest ioal aud
eoke in the Uoundary as well as in a
muoh wider area of country. The
directors are mostly business men of
Nelson, B.C., including Hon. J. Fred
Hume, ex-minister of miles, J. 11.
Ellis and L. Ernst. The local representative on the board is Geo. A.
Fraser, of this city.

the editor and proprietor of Freedom,
a local publication, who is charged
with sedition in publishing recently
an article from au Amerioan periodical with which the editor of Freedom
agreed and to which he added remarks
of his own, censuring the United

that when it staited in .Inly last every
paper in the eity upheld it, since
which they have all dropped by the
wayside as they would not support
arbitrary government, "especially
when evidences of carpet bagging and
rumors of graft were too thick to be
pleasant."
The    main   charges   were   that   in
many cases the Filipino  office holders
are rascals,   and that the   commission
has   exalted   to the highest   positions
Filipinos who nre notoriously corrupt.

Victoria, April 10.���Thc report of
Hon. Ldgar Dowdney, Who made a
survey of the route through the Hope
mountains for the proposed railway
from the coast to the interior of British Columbia, south of the C. P.It.,
was submitted lo tho legislature
today. The report is a very exhasutive
one. In it Mr. Dowdney says: Thu
result of the surveys shows that the
Hope mountains cannot be crossed
without encountering serious engineering difficulties, which would
necessitate a very large expenditure of
money, and I know ot nothing so
pressing, in the way of development
along any line that might bo determined on, to warrant its construction.
Outside of a few prospeots that have
been biongbt in by mineis. there is
nothing at present to give encouragement for this expenditure, except the
existence of some very line timber on
the west slope.

PRICE OF FUEL CONTRASTED.
During   tbo   speeches on the budget
in parliament on April 1st Dr. Arthur
S. Kendall in   replying   to opposition
criticism    said   that   the whole house
knew of tho great development in   tbe
coal industry in Cape Ureton,   but Dr.
Kendall   said   it   was   not  generally
known that on the Inverness shore   of
Cape   Breton   Messrs. Mackenzie   and
Mann     owned   coal   deposits    whieh
would before many years equal in out
pnt   the   mines at Sydney.    While believing   that   the   duty upon coal was
in   reality   a   loss   to the country, he
would not, so long as   the  tariff   was
framed nnon present lines,agree to the
duty being taken off.   To do so would
be   to save a   large sum   annually   to
the peoplo of Ontario,    who   now sent
large quantities of their produce   and
manufactures   to   the   Maritime prov-
niMB,    upon which the manufacturers
enjoyed the benefits of protection, bnt
tiiey took nothing in   return from the
Maritime   provinco.       At   the   same
time, Dr. Kendall said, the coal operators were taxing everybody too much
for their coal.      Be believed that   the
Intercolonial   railway last  year  paid
ffSUU.oOO   more   for the fuel   consumed
than   ought   to have beon paid.     The
8,000,000 of peoplo   from   Montreal   to
the   Atlantic   coast were at the mercy
of tho coal producers, an d the government must face the difficulty.    He had
been   assuied   bv   two   eminent  and
practial       mining     engineers       that
wheieas   in   Cope Ureton the   mining
companies charge If^.iiO to $9,90 per ton
for coal,   the governmont could   mine
tbat coal and put it on the oars for   $1
per   ton.     And   on   the mainland, in
I'ictou   and     Cumberland    counties,
where it now cotts $3 or 83 15,it could
be mined and placed   on   tbe   cars   at
81.25   p��r   ton.      If   the   inineowners
persisted   in   Reaping   up  prices   Dr.
Kendall     suggested    that     the   provisions   of   the   Crow's Nest   railway
bargain with respect to   the   price  ot
coal formed a precedent whieh   might
be followed with advantage   in   Nova
Scotia and Cape Breton.
It   will   he remembered during  the
" crusade   wbich   was   in   progress   in
January   and   February   and part   of
March, which was engineered with so
much energy by the  Canadian   Pacific
railway, and thut portion of the press
and   publio   that was under ItB domination,   the   object   of which was  to
secure for an allied company of the C.
P.R, thc   government resorve   of  eoal
lands   in   the  (row's Nest Pass,   and
wbich as directed against  the   Crow's
Nest Southern railway and the Crow's
Nest Coal Co., that considerable of an
effort   wus  made   to produce the im-
pruHsion on the public mind   that   the
prices of coal and coke at Foruio were
higher   than   they   should   be.    At   a
meeting   of tho Nelson board of trade
resolutions wore adopted advising tlie
Dominion government to open up   the
coal reserves held by it in the Crow's
Nest basin, and in favor of the reduction oi the price of fuel.   One  of   the
arguments used at that time wan that
tho prioe of coal was cheaper in Nova
Stotia than it is in llritish   Columbia
The  price   of conl free on board the
furs   at   Fernie   is $3 per ton.   while
according to   Dr.    Kendall the mining
companies   at   Cape Breton    in   Nova
Scotia   chargo   from $'i.(10 to $2.(10 per
ton.      In   Pieton     and     Cumberland
counties in Nova Scotia   coal   costs $3
to $8,16 per ton.    It must   be remembered, in connection with these prices,
that     tho   oost   of   lahor,     supplies,
machinery and everything used in and
about conl mines   is much   higher   at
tho   mires   of   the  Crow's Nest   Pass
than tbey are in Nova Scotia. In fact,
it hns r.ocn estimated that   coal can be
mined in Nova   Scctia at least 50   per
cent, cheaper llian iu the   Crows' Nest
l'a���s,   and   despite   this   fact coal   is
cheaper at Fernie than it   is in   Nova
Bootia.      What really makes the  coal.
cost  so  much  to  thc Kootenay eon-.
sumers is the exorbitant transportion
rates changed by the Canadain Pacific
railway for its haulage. The facts
brought out by Di. Kendall should
put to confusion those who brought
forward the argument that coal was
cheaper in Nova Scotia than it is in
Uritish Columbia and shows how far
the henchmen and adherents of the
Canadian Pacific railway will go
whtn tbey desire to make a po'nt for
the monopoly they serve.
FATUr.lt PAT MEMORIAL.
Now that tho remains of Hev. II.
Irwin, "Father Pat," have heen laid
to rest in that city with which he had
so many tender associations and
beside thoso of his beloved wife, who
was tbe sun of bis life, the question
of the perpetuation of his memory in
the Kootonays,where he was so highly
honored and loved, will no doubt be
taken up. His relatives have decided
upon a memorial hospital, which is in
entire keeping witb the unselfish life
ho lived. One cannot but thiok tbat
had he been obliged to choose a memorial for himself the hospital is what
would have undoubtedly selected,
tnough he would have in his dislike
of ostentation, deprecated the idea
that his work were worthy of any
commemoration. The sum that has
been subscribed toward a memorial
has been raised to a laige extent
among those who revereo him on
account of his labors on behalf of
suffering humanity ratner than for
his devotion to the church ot which he
was a worthy servant. One of bis
cherished schemes for the comfort of
his fellowmen who might be without
the home surroundings was a club
building al which any who wished
might spend their sputa time pleasantly and free from the temptations
which commonly abound iu other
places of resort. With this end in
view he procured the promise, if not
the gift, oi a site and steadily he was
working toward the raising of the
nece.-sary raaans to the carrying <:ut of
his object.
Now tbat he has been called hence
before he was able to accomplish this
work, ii seems most fitting that tbis
task he set himself to should be
carried through by others. In every
town of any size in British Columbia,
particularly in the Kootenays there is
need of such an institution. The
memorial club must necessarily be
located in one town, whose inhabitants will reap the benefit, but the
example of the good which oan be accomplished would instigate those of
other places to work toward tne erection of similar institutions. Such a
club would be more lasting and nave
more meaning than entablatures or
stained windows and no more fittingly
oould his unselfish life and works be
held up as an example to others. If
bis relatives would entertain the
idea and the site for the hospital be
selected in the upper country, the
addition of a wing for some particular
class of hospital work would also be
most seemly.
EDITORIAL NOTE?.
A demand has sprung up for molybdenite, and inquiries are being made
by a London (England) firm as to the
possible supply. Its great value can
he appreciated when it is known that
its selling price is $600 a ton. As an
electrode it ranks very high, and is a
good substitute tor platinum in electrical work.
One of Canaaa's most notable captains of industry passed away when
ox-Senator A. W. Ogilvie died in
Montreal on March 2. Mr. Ogilvie
was of the type of man who accomplishes results in whatever field of
life they occupy and was a leading
figure in public life aud business in
the Dominion ; in fact, the people of
Canada are much indebted to him lor
his successful buslnoss enterprise.
Mr. Ogilvie was born in St. Michael,
Quebec, in 1839, and waa educated in
Montreal. Ir 1852 he was taken into
the flour milling business by hit
uncle,the late James Ooudie. On Mr
Ooudie's retirement in 1854 he founded
the house of A. W. Ogilvie and Co.,
grain merchants and proprietors ol the
(Ilnora flour mills, Lechine oanal.
lie retired from the firm In 1874, Having taken in as partners hiB two
younger hrotheis, John and W. W.
Ogilvie, the latter of whom afterwards became sole proprietor He
was connected with many of Canada's
leading commercial enterprises and
died regretted, by a large circle of
friends.
Sir William Van Home, rogarding
the matter from tho point of view of
the C.P.R., does not think favorably
of the Railway commission proposed
by Professor McLean, fays the Mone-
dtary Times. He thinks the Privy
oouncil ot Canada forms, tor this pnr-
pso, the best attuinablo tribunal.
This may be taken as settling a question on which there has beeu hitherto
some doubt. When the late Mr. McCarthy first proposed, in parliament,
the establishment of a Hallway commission, tnere were people who
thought it might be done in accordance with tbe desire of the C P.lt. Tbo

great railway companies would probably have tne ambition to control the
Railway commission, if we had one
and it is not certain that there would
be no danger from that source. If
there were a Railway commission,
more prompt attention might some-
timos bu got to complaints which are
now carried to the Railway committee
of the Privy council; though it is
proper to say that there is very little
to the debit of the Railway committee, under this head. The chances are
that Prufessor McLean's recommendation will remain without being acted
upon for some time. It is proposed
that the Railway commission should
make independent enquiries, whicb
the Parliamentary Railway committee
cannot do. The latter can only act
upon cases brought before it. In some
respects, the Railway and Canal commission of England would be a better
model to copy than the American
Interstate commission.

The Burlington Mining and Milling
Co., operating the Iron Horse mine en
Ten Milo, was incorporated last week
in Spokane. The company will re-
Bume work on tbe property an soon
as matters can be arranged to do so.
tlcorge W. Hull, geneial manager
of the Sullivan Group Mining Co., is
in the city buying supplies, and en
route (or Grand Forks to participate
in tho opening of the Republic and
(Irand Folks railway. Mr. Hull reports that work is in full blust ou tbe
Sullivan smelter at Marysvillle and
expects that, it will be blown in by
���July 1. Machinery is coming to hand
every day and is being put in position
us mpiilly as possible.
Tho final payment on tho Eva and
Highland Mary claims in the Lardeau
was made yesterday by the Imperial
Development Syndicate to A.F. ltosen-
ln'i'ger.the amount being $8,000. This
property was located two years ego
and development has been prosecuted
on it since with very encouraging
results. Tbo company has 1- men at
work at present, and at the annual
meeting of the directors held in February it was announced in the manager's report that the property was in
a most satisfactory condition. The
group is now entirely paid fur witb
the exception ot a small payment to
be  made on tbe Cholla claim.
Among tbe copper properties in the
vicinity of Nelson which is likely to
ba operated soon is the Queen Victoria
mine which is situated noar lleasley
siding on the Columbia and Kootenay
railway, and only 1.400 feet from the
railway track. This property bas as
large a surface showing as the famous
Hritannia mine that was considered
the largest of the province. The ore
crops out on a bluff and the development work so far done shows already
a body of ore 400 feet by 300 feet by 150
foet. This ore has abont the average
value of tliat of the Le Roi. This
mine only awaits the investment of
sufficient capital to make it ono of the
great mines of the provinco.
Cbas. A.Sandiford states that a new
company has been formed in England
to work tho Wakefield, and operations
w'll commence in May, probably
with Ward Macdonald as foreman,
says the New Denver Ledge. He also
received a cablegram Saturday to ship
100 tons more of zinc ore to Antwerp
from the Hosun, with the assurance of
a permanent contract if the ore ruus
well iu ?inc. Mr. Sandiford states
that the report in a Sandon paper
about himself and fatker having been
let out by the Northwest Mining Syndicate is ino irrect. W. H. Sandiford,

about the middle of May or sooner if

THE WARDE ENGAGEMENT.
IMPROVED MAIL SERVICE.
Mr. Gallilier Has No   Hope For   Duty
on Lead This Year.
The regular meeting of tbe board of
trade was held last evening in the
board rooniB. In the absence of the
piesident and vice-president, ,1. M.
Lay was appointed to the chair. After
tbe reading of the minutes a number
of commuications were read by the
secretary. Among these was one from
W. A. Qalliber, M.P., stating that
the matters of a mail car between
Nelson and Midway and of a Daily
mail service between Nelson and
Medicine Hat were under consideration by tne department and would
probably be attended to shortly. Rc-
gatdiog the memorial asking for certain changes in the lead duties Mr.
Oulliher stated that there was no hepe
of anythiug being done this session as
it had been resolved that no changes
would be made in the tariff till the
next session. He said that he hoped
that tne matter would be taken up by
all the boards of trade in tbe Kootenays, as it was of tbe most vital importance to the distriot.
It was pointed out in the clause of
the act relating to the incorporation
of boards of trades a change is made
by adding tbat it shall be possible to
form a board of.trade in any town or
oity having a population of 2,SCO or
more, except ia llritish Columbia,
where 1,500 shall be sufficient.
A letter was read from the New
Westminster board relating to the fees
now oharged in the county court, and
asking concerted action to havo them
reduced to a more reasonable basis.
A letter was reao from the Atlin
board in regard to the influx of
Japanese and Chinese labor into that
district.
A letter was read from Thoburn
Allan, tendering his resignation as
vice-president of tho board owing to
his contemplated removal to Culgary.
On motion of W. A. Macdonald,
seconded by T.Morley, tho resignation
was accepted with regret.
On motion of Mr Morley, seconded
by Y. Starkey, it was decided that the
secretary should be instructed to write
to the post offlce department in regard
to the transmission of bonded mail
from the onstoin house to (he post-
office, and vice versa, for which at
present there is no provision, leading
to delay.

An individual wandering along the
Helsm-Poorman road on Wednesday,
without hat, coat or boots attracted
some attention from a pass'erhy wbich
was incroased when he informed them
that he was crazy and inquired if
thoy knew where he could find his
missing articles of attire. After night
fall ho came into the oity and went to
an hotel aud slept off his peouliar
symptoms which were caused by the
after effects of intoxicants.
The date of the holding of the oourt
of assizes in Nelson has been fixed for
May 0, but it is not known yet what
judge will preside. There is already
a long list ef cases on the docket,both
criminal and civil. Among the criminal cases will be the Fern mino gold
brick caso, also the one pertaining to
the operations of tho Kootenay association, at Fernie. This association
was for the purpose of supplying persons in the east who were seeking
employment with positions. Two of
the partners Gabriel and Bride, are
now in the Nelson jail, the third one,
Payne, being out on hail.
Thc total numher of pupils enrolled
at tho Nelson publio schools for the
month of Maroh was BIS and thc average attendance wa6 274.1)3. The enrollment and tbe average daily attendance hy rooms are as follows:
Div. I., 28 and J7.ll; Div. II, 30 and
31.32; Div. Ill, 52 aud 45.05; Div. IV,
4? and 80.(18.; Div. V, 40 and 39.16;
Div. VI, 40 and 41.58; Div. VII, 57
and 50.42. Since Ihe Easter holidays
tbe attendance in the lower rooms has
increased somewhat. It is doubtful
whether a room in tbe province gives
a higher average for the ennrollment
than does the principal's room, which
is a percentage of 97.
The Chinese are still keoping up the
festivities iu connection wilh their
ceremonies held al the beginning of
the week in honoi of the doad. A
Chinaman who was asked regarding
the occasion said it was "all a-samee
Hist ol July," and pointed with pride
to a number of sheets of papei posed
up In a prominent position on Front
street. The paper was covered with
Chinese writing which was explained
as boing a list of tho Chinamen of the
eity and thc amount that each one hail
contributed, each Chinamun having
to contribute at least "two-bittee, "
while thero were also a considerable
number of $5 and $10 given. The
Chinese being essentially practical all
this uraonnt goes for edibles, this
being considered the most satisfactory
form of celebration possible.
The stopping ot the street care,
whioh took place commencing from
Wednesday night, was greatly felt hy
tho people living in the suburbs, particularly up thc hill. The cessation
of operations was consequent on instructions received in a cablegram
from London on Wednesday. It will
not bo known for suiue time yet how

The Constant Wearing of a Hat Propagates Dandruff Germs.
There are many men who wear their
hats practically all the time when
awake, and are blessed with a heavy
shock of hair; yet if the scalps of
these same men onco became infested
with dandruff germs, the parasites
would multiply all the quicker for
laok of nir. Baldness would ensue as
the final result. Newbro's Herpicie
kills these germs and stimulates unhealthy hair to abundant growth.
Herpicide is a pleasant hair dressing
as well as a dandmlt cure and contains not au atom of injurious
substance.
