Eleventh  Yeai
Frank Will   Soon  Be  Producing 800 Tons per
Oihcr Properties In the Crow's
Nest Pass Being Developed.
From a gentleman who returned
yesterday from a trip through KuBt
Kootenay aud western Alberta, it was
learned that there is cousicrable
development going on to the cast of
Fernie, iu Alborta, in the coal measures. The Canadian Amorican Coal
aud Coke Co., at Frank, is now taking out MO tons ol coal per day and
within six weeks will lie extracting
r>00 additional tons, which will make
the total output of 800 tons a day.
The Canadian Pacific railway is taking most of the output lrom Frank,
and the renini.idor is u<'posed of in
Alberta. The company lias let a contract for the construction of 250 coke
ovens, and work on them is to bo
commenced as soon as the contractors
can make tho necessary arrangements.
The Fleutot syndicate iB developing
some coal deposits seveu miles from
Frank. Mr. Fleutot ia at present in
Paris, in company with W. tl. Gebo,
and uxpects to return in a short time
financially equipped to build seveu
miles of rallwav needed to connect the
mines with tbe Crow's Nest railway
und to further open the measure .
At Blairmoie considerable work has
been done by tlio Fishb. .ne syndicate on llieir mines, and some of the
coal bus already been marketed, A
spur ihree miles in length hs needed to
connect the mines at hlairmore with
the Crow's Nest railway.
There are a number of prospoctors
in that section who have coal lands of
known merit to sell, hut it is sometimes hard to rind purchasers. In
Kootenay Pars thero are many
thousands aores of coal laud which
ha�� not yet been taken up.
The trow's Nest Southern railway
is annul one third completed and it is
tbougth it will be three and perhaps
four months before it is finished.

Manager Holland   Denies  Any   Intention of Jumping Q. N.   Grade.
Grand Forks, Feb. 31.���A banner
shipment of 46 carloaJs of ore from
the Gianby mines at Phoenix was received at the Granby smelter yesterday. Ore reserve are being accumulated here in view of the starting up
o[ two additional furnaces within the
next fortnight. W. Yolen Williams,
superintendent at Phoenix, arrived
here today for the purpesa oi conferring with .lay P. Graves and A. C,
Flummerfelt of the Granby company.
S. S. Fower.manager of the Casoade
Water, Light and Power company,
reached here today. He reports that
the wire for the pole line between
Cascade and Phoenix is being strung,
and that the compauy will be prepared to furnish power to towns and
mining camps on and after June 1st
Tracy W. Holland, manager of tbe
Kettle Valley line, returned today
from a trip to Republic. Asked hy
your correspondent if it were true
that he had instruetad his surveyors
to locate a line over the Great Northern grade between Cascade and Grand
Forks with a view to'jumping'1 the
Great Northern grade, he replied:
'The idea is perfectly absurd. It
must have originated with some irresponsible newspaper correspondent or
was inspired from some hostile or
malignant source. It is true I had
engineers out taking the oontour of
the country for the Kettle River Valley railway. This company has a
charter covering the territory from
Cascade via Grand Forks up the north
fork of Kettle river to Franklin camp
with a branch from near Grand Forks
to Midway. It is the intention of the
Kettle Kiver Valley Railway company
to survey and locate the entire line
covered by its charter with a view to
tbe early construction of the same.
The recently discovered coal Holds on
the north fork coupled with its timber
resources and the potential ore tonnage has emphasized the importance
cf a road being constructed into this
distriot as soon as possible.

Berlin, Feb. 21.���Andrew D White,
the American ambassdor here, presiding tonight at an assemblage ol .1011
Americans, who celebrated Washing-
Ion's birthday at the Kalserhof by a
umsical entertainment followed by a
supper and a dance, said in an address: Sundry writers on this side of
the Atlantic have been specially eloquent in denouncing the general
hatred of Germany und the Germans
which they insist obtains in tho
United States. Much has been said of
Deutsnhenhetz (German baiting) and
this has been placed in such a lucid
light that one would almost believe
that tho appearance of one of our
German-American fellow citizens upon
the streets of an Amerioan city tho
citiz.'iis of American birth were ready
to cry havoc and loose on him tlie
dogs ol war. It has been my duty (or
Ave years to read with considerable
conscientiousness the number ol tbe
foremost American newspapers representing the dominant thought in various parts of the union and I ran most
truthfully say that I have fuiled to
Snd tbe slightest trace of such
"dentschcnheiz," I did not discover
anything like hatred or a persecuting
spirit toward the Germans Americans
on the American contiuneut. Even if
there were no other reasons, the
Americans are too busy aud too good
naturcd for an amusement of that
On the other sido it has been
beon insisted hy more or less well
meaning people in thu United States,
that a dark cloud between the
countries really exists nnd that in the
times uf which ancient history makes
mention and especially during our
Spanish war, the Gorman government
waa somehow hostile to tlio United
States or in some manner, which nobody seoms able to givo witn precision, the German government did
something which it ongbt not to have
done nnd left undone something it
ought to have done. To this answer
bas been made, if I may be allowed
here to refer to it by myself, as one
competent to express opinion of the
suhject, with the declaration that the
conduct oi the German government
toward the United States during the
Spanish war was excellent. The German government observed a strict
neutrality, and showed no unfriendly
spirit. From first to last it never made
any suggestions or proposals that
emabrrassed us in the slightest
degiee; in fuet,the conduct of the German government was all that we could
desire it to be."
Armory  of  "1st Regiment New York,
Burned This Morning.
New York, Feb. 22.���Fire which
broke out after midnight destroyed
the 71st Begiraent armory between
83rd nnd 34th streets on Fourth avenue. The building occupied tbo
entire block and was headquarters foi
the 71st regiment and headquarters of
the Fifth brigade, second battery and
tho lirst signal corps. The Ure started
on tbe main floor and burned upward
very rapidly. Before 2 o'clock the
entire building was in ruins.
It was feared at that hour that the
car barns of the Metropolitan street
railway to the south would also be
ignited. A large quantity of powder
stored in the armory has exploded.
Ambulance calls were sent to the hospitals but it is not known whether
any one was injured. Hundreds of
persons occupying a row of flat buildings in Thirty First street, who were
ouBted by the police, were eared (or in
neighboring houses.
Last  Act  in the  Making of the Hay-
Pauncefote Treaty.
Washington, Feb. 21.-The final
ratification of the Hay-Pauncefo'e
tieaty giving England's assent to tho
construction of a canal across Central
America by the United States, were
exchanged at the State department this
afternoon. There was very little
ceremony at the exchange. Copies of
the treaty had been prepared precisely
similar, excepting the faot that the
signatures were invorted in one copy
and these were formally exchanged
between Lord Pauncefote and Secretary Hay, a protocol being signed
formally attesting to that fact which
will form part of tho record.
Discuss Significance of Prince Henry's
German Blandishments Will
Not Estrange Britain and
London, Feb. 21.���The Weekly
Review makes tho impending arrival
of Prince Henry of Prussia, at New
fork, the occasion of another chapter
in tbo Spanish-American war controversy. The Spectator reviews at
length tbo whole htory of the diplomatics exchanges with a view of controverting what it terins "the distortion of the actual facts hy the German
The puper disclaims any intention
of attempting to mar the reception to
be tendered Prince Henry, hut declares
that both Englishmen and Americans
see through Germany's game and re
fuse to be mislead by tho "inspired"
attempts to undermine their mutual
friendship and understanding. A fact
which will be written down by the
historians, says tbe Spectator, is as
well reoognised today as it wiil ever
be. That is tbat England used her
influence, and the Americans know
she used it, on the side of the United
States as against those who wished to
take the side of Spain. A test of the
attitude toward America during Ihe
war displayed by England and Germany icspectively, is found in the
respective attitudes of the English nnd
Germany squadrons toward Admiral
Dewey in Manila Bay. The Germans
nearly fired on the Americans. If they
had done so tho English would have
acted on the American side.
The Outlook treats the matter
lightly. It says that Emperor William,now,as in China, is using Prince
Henry us a bait for the German hook.
Neither Prince Henry nor his astute
brother, the Emperor, will ever succeed in weakening the substantial
grounds upon which Anglo-American
co-operation now rests. In tbe same
connection,the Outlook expresses gieat
satisfaction at Secretary Hay's note to
Russia and commends it as a strong
document, which gains additional
force from its despisal of old fashioned diplomacy.
The Saturday Review, on the oti.er
hand, pursues its costomary anti
American course and roundly abuses
the government for being drawn into
this fresh "humiliating position" und
denominates the whole controversy as
an ''international slanging matdi."

If the organs of the 0. P. R. continue to make a bogey man out of Jim
Hill the time is not far distant when
mothers will frighten their children
when they are naughty by telling
them that the ogre Hill will come
and curry them away if they are not
good. They continue to misrepresent
hm and attribute to him the most sinister designs on British Columbia and
a desire, in some dark and mysterious
way, to injure its mining and smelting interests. What is the truth ol the
matter? Mr. Hill is a native of
Canada, although today he is probably the most able railroad man in the
United Sates. One of the ambitions of
his lile is to become popular in his
native land, and he has caused the expenditure ol considerable money in
British Columbiu in tho construction
of a system which wives tlie people the
beaefit of competing lines. What
would the Kootenays und Yale be and
what would the freights and fares be
if it were not that there is competition in transportation? It is ditlicult
to imagine at what the heights the
prices for railway scivice would be
under such an unfortunate situation
as a monopoly by the 0. P. R. Mr.
Hill knows the possibilities of this
country, understands that it has
boundless resources,and fully believes
that tho railroad ventures which he
has made, which he is making and
which be will continue to make, will
be of benefit to the province of British
Columbia and the Dominion in which
ho was born. It is his desire that his
native land should have the benefit of
a part of his genius as a railroad
man, as if it were not for that wish
he has a larger field for his energies
in the United States. Those who are
intmate with Mr. Hill know witb
what enthusasw be speaks o( Canada
and Canudiuns and bow earnestly he
discusses his plans for tbe giving the
country new lines of transportation
and how strong: his desire is to play
as important a part in benefiting the
country as his circumstances and op-
portuntos will permit. It is certain
that the great railway magnate has a
warm spit in bis heart for Cnnadn,
and, therefore, that be should seek to
injure it in any manner is simply
One of the means whieh the organs
opposed to Mr. Hill are using in an
endeavor to discredit him is the
fact that he is a part owner in the
stock of the Crow's Nest Puss Coal
oompany. This ownership cuine about
in the most natural way in the world.
During the strike in the Slocan in
191)0 the demnnd for coke from tbe
smelters fell off to almost nothing.and
it became necessary [or the Crow's
Nest Pass Coal company to find a new
mnrket. Coul nud coke were shipped
over the C. P. K. through tbe mountains to Lethhridge and lrom thence
via a narrow gunge line to the Great
Northern. From there it Tias sent to
the smelters at Butte anil elsewhere.
Tbe ohargo mado by the C. P. R. for
the haul from Fernie to Letiibrulge
was so high that the margin o( profit
was very slender.
When 'he strike was ovei and tho
smplters of Kootenay were operating
up to their former output the productive capacity of the coal mines und
coke ovens had increased and the
possibilities o( the market to the south
of the boundary linj wero better understood. The coke of the Craw's
Nest basin is of a superior quality
and the smelters in the states want it.
Tbo railroad transportation charges
were so high that it wus impossible to
ship via Lethbrislgo and make anything ncai a legitimate profit. The
Great Northern system extends Ior
hundreds of ">iles through the stites
to the south o( the line. A more
direct route was needed as the home
market only consumed n tithe of the
product. After a desperate fight, during which tho C.P.R. used nil of its
influence and adopted its usual buccaneering tactics to prevent it, a
Charter was secured (or a railway lrom
the coalfields oi the Crow's Nest Pass
south to the boundary line. Mr. Hill
agreed to construct this line and also
a line from the boundary line south
to a connection with the Oreat Northern system at Jennings.
In consideration o( this Mr. Hill
was permitt'.'d to purchase a three-
tenths interest in tho stock of lhe coal
company for which he paid a prem.
ium. Thc pur value o( the stock was
*500,i)00 and Mr. Hill paid $800,000
for tbe three-tenths which he acquired. Upon tliis transaction the stories
that Mr. Hill had acquired a control
of the stock of the coal company were
made. Thu officer! o( the company
have repeatedly denied that Mr. Hill
had obtained a control of the stock.
They also asvovetute that the control
is held by a syndicate which Is
pledged to not part with a control
nnder any circumstances to Mr. Hill
or anyone else. There is uot the te-
motest possibility ol the control passing out of the hands ot the syndicate
of Canadians who now manage the
compauy, nnd it is to be hoped that
this assurance will satisfy the several
organs of the C.P.R. who are so
frightened whenever tbe subject is
mentioned that they go into hysterics,
like the Tribune did yesterday morning when it indalged in capitals to
add emphasis to a dispatch which
purported to have come from Minneapolis, and wiiieb stated that tbe
Securities company was negotiating
for stock of the Crow's Nest Coal company. The Securities company may
want control,but they cannot get it.
The attitude of the Tribune in the
controversy anent ooal and ooke is
curious as it is found fighting on tbe
side o( a railway monopoly. For
years it posed as a friend of the
worker and was the Don Quixote of
the labor element, obarging on every
occasion on tho windmills of capital,
but now it is the loudest advocate of
the C.P. B. How is it that the mighty
adovcate of the cause of the people
has fullen to such a dept as this ?
Tho weakness of tho government
was palpable shown at tne opening
of the legislative assembly by the vote
for an adjournment of the debate,
when it carried its point by a majority of two. That it recognized its lack
of strength was also revealed in the
overtures which it made to the oppo
sition caucus when it offered two
seats in tlie cabinet and the speaker
ship if tho oppositionists would join
bands with it to defeat Martin. By
tbe latter act, if tho offer was made in
good iaith and was not the result of
understanding with the wily Martin.it
must have estrnnged and excited the
hostilty of Martin and as the overtures were rejected it thus added con-
siderbly to the chances* of its final
overthrow. It is in such a predicament, being between tbe Devil und
thn deep sea, that thc least addition to
the number of its opponents will bnt
hasten its end.
Ab several of the members, notably
Smith Curtis, of Rossland, E. C.
Smith, of East Kootenay, JoR"ph
Martin and his personal followers,
are pledged for redis'.iibution, it is
probable that a crisis will be avoided
until after such a measure has been
adopted and then, as there are so
many discordant elements in tbe
legislature, lt is probable Unit a general election will have to be held. In
this event there will be a new shuffling of the political cards and it is
difficult to foretell what eltment will
be in the ascendency when the result
of ��ho polling is known.
There should be a ohange at tbo
capital, and as soon ns can be and the
elemetts of disorder which have boen
congregated there whenever tbe legislature couvenes, should be relegated
to the quietude of private life. There
are several members of the legislature
who place tho welfare of the province
before tbeir private affairs nnd who
earnestly endeavor to give the people
a gootl and stable government. These
Should be re-elected. On the other
hand, there are several whose only
desire is to servo private and personal
ends, and wbo seem to looso sight of
the fact that tncy are there to serve
thc people, and these should be retired and better mon chosen in their
places. Tbis continual strife and
turmoil in tlie governmeent and the
legislature should be stoppod if thore
is any desire on the part of tho people
for prosperity, pence and stability.

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
There is noth iofc like Asthmalene. It
brin js instant relief, even in t e worst
cases.   It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, o Villa Ridfre,
111., says: "Your trial bottle of ABthma-
lene received in good condition. I cannot
tell you bow thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat nnd asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your ndvertisemeut for tbe cure of
tbis dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you had overspoken
yourselves, bnt resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment, the trial acted like a
'.harm,    bend me a full size bottle.

My wife commenced taking it about the flrst of November. 1 very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one boltle her Asthma has disappeared

Tlio otc shipments through Kaslo
during tho week were 200 1>I tons.
A forco of 35 men aro employed at
the Knterprise, says the Slocan Drill
Almost all 0�� the ore extracted is
uoinff sent through the concentrator.
A carload of concentrates will be
shipped early next week.
The Arlington shipped 50 tons of oro
during the work. There is a carload
of ore sacked at the chutes ready for
shipment, the grade of whioh will be
squat to that sent cut lost March, thc
nut proceeds then being $5,200.
The promoters of tho Eepubllo com-
panv, owning property on Erin moun.
lain, write that the condition of the
concern is very sound. Instruction
have been given bv the president to
li, fi, Campbell-Johnstone to let the
contract 'or building the wagon road
to thu Kepiiblie group. Operations
will be oommenced just as soon ns
their engineer advises and will not be
suspended, but the mine opened up iii

The Kootenaian says the Orent
llritain group, consisting of five
claims situated on the headwaters of
Cooper crtok has boen sold to C.
Sutherland Clute. of Spokane, who
represents Couer d'Alene capital, tor
810,000. The group iB said to be one
of the best ln the Lardeau district.
The ore gives assays of 77 ounces
silver. $12 In gold and 4 per cent copper. About 300 feet of work has been
nunc on the property.
The Slocan Drill says that the
lessees nnd owuers of the Ottawa were
informed on Wednesday that the
money was in the bank to cover the
option held on that property by Pittsburg capitalists associated with W.
D. Wrighter, of Spokane. A month
since Messrs. Wrighter and Coleman
secured a 30-day option on the Ottawa
which expires .today. Tho price of the
bond in about $45,000. The Ottawa
is said to be looking uncommonly

of shipping ore in the face of tho
Mr, Robert Seifert, of Vaneouvor,
has received some wimples of mica
from the llig Ueiid of the Columbia
river district. Some twelve or fourteen claims have been staked on the
Vi in which is located about four miles
west from Kinbasket lake a widening
of the Columbia river below Donald,
borne mining was done last fall and
as a resulit of tests of tbe mica made
in Iloston an option on the property
bas been secured by a Donald man. A
test of the mica received here Is stated
to have been extremely satisfactory.
Mr. Seifert contemplates a trip to the
Big Bend oountry in the spring. In
the working of the vein, it is understood, that boats will bo loaded and
dropped down the river from Kinbasket Jake to Revelstoke, at which point

Ooffee Drink-vs Acquire Proof.
When persons insist en taking some
kind of food or drink that causes disease it is nut fair to blame a doctor
for not curing them.
Coffee keeps thousands of people
sick in spile of all the doctor can do
to cure them, 'there is but one way
to get well. That is to quit ccfl'ee
absolutely; a great help will be to
shift over to I'ostum Food Ooffee.
A ease of this kind is illustrated by
Mrs. E. Kelly. 833���8th Av., Newark,
N..L, who says, ''1 have been ailing
for about eight years with bilious
troubio and indigestion. Every doctor
told me tc give up coffee, 1 laughed

attend me regularly.

coffee, but prescribed I'ostnm Food

that I could not tell the difference in
taeto between I'ostum and the common coffee,
I b.*gan to improve right away aud
have never had a bilious spell since

When 1 started I weighed 100 pouds,

what has made tlie change and, of

At the police court yesterday morning W. Lewis pleaded guilty to un
lawful possession of on overcoat, the
property of Charles Malys, and was
sentenced to threo months with hard
labor. His partner, Jackman, who
was accused of stealing tbe coat
pleaded not guilty and the casu was
remanded until aiternoon. When tlie
case was called the second timo the
prisoner Hrst stated that ho had taken
the coat, intending to return it, hut
after a little questoning from the
magistrate confessed that he was
guilty and received the same sentence
as his partner. The case of A. and P.
llrewster was next called. They were
accused of stealing an overcoat from
the Grand Central. A. llrewster stated
that ho was guilty and had stolen the
coat. He said that he had not seen his
brother for a number of years until he
met him ou Thursday.and their father
having died four months before they
felt badly over it and gut drunk, and
he took the coat without knowing
what he was doing. He said that his
brcther was perfectly innocent . in the
matter. The magistrate did not seem
to think the grief was fresh enough to
excuse the conduct of the elder brother
and told him he was a little to old to
make the orphan plea. He therefore
gave him three months with hard
labor. The younger brother was dismissed there not being any evidence
to show that he was guilty. Archie
Brewster gave the name of Dan
llrewster when arrested.

We wish to secure the Bcrvfces of families to do knitting
for us in tlieir homes. Our method is lho same as adopted
In England. We are the Introducers of this plan and the
largest    knitting   concern   In  Canada.
Alter long experience, we have been a'ule to produce an
Automatlo Machine by which all kinds of seamless knitting ls now done by our Family Machine, thereby enabling
anyone of ordinary intelligence to quickly learn to dn the
work from tho Instruction Guide. All wo require is that
von use thc machine according to directions. The Machine
being made expressly for this purpose, and the operation
so   simple,   lt  cannot possibly make a mistake in its work.
The great demand now Is for Bicycle Stockings, Woodmen's Socks, and Motormen's Mittens, and as we are unable to supply the demand, have taken this method of advertising   for   more  help.
Tbe largo 'export trade to the North-west Territories,

knit ono pair of sample socks or stockings and a simple
nnd complete Instruction Guide, showing how the work is
to bp done. When the samples have been finished and

which you knit and return likewise when finished We
prepay charges on all work one way, and our workers pay
return charges. The work, as we have stated, Is simple and
rapidly done, the machine having a capacity of ten thousand stitches a minute. We have many persons now in our
emnlny who can knit from twenty-five to thirty pairs of
socks or stockings a day, and where the time of a family
Is devoted to the work, you can readily see that $15.00 or
J^n.OO  per week can be easily earned.

free, and everything that is necessary for the work. We
are furnishing the machines only for the exclusive use of
