Half Million Dollar Extension
to Power Plant at Bonnington Falls.
Job Most Extensive Contemplated In the Kootenays
This Summer.
Work will be. under way within two
or three weeks on the half million
dollar extension to the West Kootenay
Power & Light company's plant at
Bonnington Palls and tho undei taking is one of the most extensive contemplated in tlie Kootenays this summer. The company will woik an
average of 2W men for eight months
and the amount to be expended in
wages and maintenance is estimated
at 8850,000. Tbe wages paid will be
on the scale adopted or railroad work
in the district. For some time the
buildings nscessary to accommodate
the crew have been under way and
the final touches will be given to
tiiese by May 1. The buildings include a large bunkliouse for the men,
a dormitory for tlie officials and a
mess liouse. Tlie work will be carried
on under the superintendence of
Henry Ilolgate, electrical engineer of
Toronto, whose representative is now
on the ground. The company expects to ommence active operations
prior to the 15th of May.
The extensions to be made at the
Bonnington Falls power house will
increase the producing power of the
institution from 5,000 electrical horse
power as at present, to 12,000 horse
power. A market will be found for
the additional production in the
Boundary country, Northport and other points not now served by the company's system of distribution. Tbe
buildings now housing the plant are
to be increased by a generator building 80x1011 feet in dimensions and a
transformer building 40x80. Tlie
canal leading into the buildings is to
be increased in width from ��. feet to
50 feet and the dam extended toward
tbe railroad track correspondingly.
The rock cutting entails tlie lemoval
of 50,000 yards of material and 7,000
barrels of cement will be uted in the
extension of the dain. The electrical
apparatus for the additional plant will
be furnished by the General Electrical company of Schenectady, Mass.,
and the hydraulic apparatus is to be
suplied by tlie Stillwell, Biere at
Smith Vail company of Dayton, Ohio.
Altogether lliu cars of plant and material will be used 'n the course of
the work.
A feature of the plant will be the
wheel settings. These are to be 50
feet in width and will be the largest
in the world. The step-up transformers, three in number, aie of 1,800 kilowatt capacity apiece, tlie largest
apparatus of the* kind manufactured.
When the plant is^complete it will be
the largest electiical plant west of the
Rocky Mountains.
An unfortunate feature of the matter from the Nelson standpoint is that
this city is not likely to profit very
materially through the enterprise
in the direction of furnishing supplies. A. L. Campbell, manage! of
the company, is eiedited with stilting
that all the business arising out of
the enterprise and contiolluble by the
West Kootenay Power at Light company will be diverted to Rosslund.
In defence of bis position Mr. Campbell is said to claim that Rossland is
one of the company's big customers
and that the Nelson people turned the
company down when the company
sought entrance to this city.

Peru, Ind., April 25.���Henry Huff-
man, a well known animal trainer
with tlie Wallace shows, met a horrible death here today, being killed by
"Big Charley," a monster elephant,
while the animal was bathing in the
Missinewa river. Big Charley wound
his trunk about Keeper Huffman and
hurled him far into the stream. Tlie
man was uninjured and when he returned he said, "Why Charley, I did
not think that of you. Weren't you

COMPRESSOR AT THE ATHAHA.SCA
OPERATING TO ITS FULL
CAPACITY.
Work has been started on the con
centrator to be erected this summer
at the Enterprise mine on Ten Mile
creek owned by the London & B. C.
Gold Fields. The contract for the
election of the plant which includes a
compressor has been let to George Mc-
Farland of this eity and the frames of
the compressor building are now being put together. A consignment of
machinery for the plant is now in
the city and by the time the buidings
aie ready for their reception the initial sections of the plant will be delivered at the property. It is expected
that the concentrator will be in operation by September next at the latest.
About 25 men aie now employed at
the Enterprise and sufficient ore is being shipped to pay running   expenses.
When the concentrator is started it
is confidently predicted that the property will be one of the largest producers in the Ten Mile and Springer
creek sections.
At the Iron Horse group below the
Enterprise work is being eariied on
with excellent results. A strike was
made on the ground recently and if
the showing develops the Iron Horse
is safe to bo an important producer
and that within the present year.
A crew of carpentcis is now at work
on tlie Arlington (Erie) concentrator
nnd construction is to be rushed forward as rapidly as possible. The
management anticipates having the
plant in operation before the end of
.nine. All told some 25 men are employed at the mine, although the
operations are confined to the mill
buildings. The road to the Arlington
is now in good condition, the snow
having gone off with the exception
of a portion at the upper end. The
ground between the Arlington eroup
and the creek has been staked. The
waste water from the mill will pass
over the ground.
The statement is made that the
owners of the Second Relief mine have
determined to postpone the construction of the mill at tlie property until
another year. The reason for the
step bas not been announced. On Hie
occasion of tbe last visit to the Second Relief of Mr. Neill, who represents the Finch-Campbell syndicate,
he stated that it was the company's
intention to proceed with Hie mill
this summer, and that the property
would be placed on a producing basis
at once. Apparently the syndicate
has changed its plans on this head us
no move bos been made to take out
timber or install a sawmill plant as
would have been done were . the mill
to be proceeded with this year.
The report is current tbat the Norway group iu the Erie camp has passed into the hands of an English outfit
which will open up the property this
summer. The representative of the
company was on the ground last
week.
The stuff of the Duncan Mines and
subsidiary companies Is now down
to lower water mark, but a turn in
the lead market will see their properties manned to the total of their
capacities. At the Poorman the usual
crew is employed and the mill is in
operation constantly, the increase in
the water supply making things more
convenient in respect to power. The
Rand baby drill put in at the mine
last winter is still in operation and is

Ottawa, April 85.���In connection
with the question of central armories
in which the new rities for rural

militia states it was proposed to issue 10 rifles or thereabouts to the captain of each militia compiny which
could be kept at company headquarters and used for practice the year
round. Dr. Borden agreed with Colonel Prior's sugestion that it was desirable that there should be a second
caitridge factory in the interior at
Winnipeg. Tlie minister also stated
that he had copies of the Canadian
defence scheme prepared a couple of
years ago by a committee of officers.

Nelson secuied a liberal share of the
honors at the high Cou.t meeting of
the Independent Order of Foresters
which has just concluded at Revelstoke. F. W. Swannell of this city is
past high chief ranger and delegate
to supreme high court, while G. C.
S. Paterson's musical talent secured
him the position of high organist.
The list of officers elected by tbe
high court is as follows:
High Chief Ranger, S. H, Pike,Van-

High Auditors, Ni.ol Allan, and Mr.
Owens, Vancouver. Among the appointed officers is High Organist, Bro.
G. C. S. Paterson of Nelson.
F. W, Swannell was strongly urged
to become a candidate for high chief
ranger but declined, despite a guarantee of sufficient votes to place him
easily at the head of the poll. Later
in the proceedings Mr. Swannell was
chosen to represent the jurisdiction at
the supreme high court which convenes in Los Angeles in. April 1902.
The competition for this honor was
keen, but Mr. Swannell led the ballot

The members of the order in Revelstoke entertained tho delegates most
hospitably. A feature of the programme was a banquet on the evening
of the first day. The gathering spent

A mystery lias arisen iu connection
witli tlie whereabouts of W. J. McLeod, an insurance agent well known
in Nelson. McLeod bad latterly made
his headquarters in Rossland and wus
a guest at tlie Allan House there. Between Feburary 25th and -tith he vanished and nothing bus been heard
from him since. He wus sober und his
accounts with the insiirunee companies arc perfectly straight so that it is
feared some misadventure has befallen
him. McLeod came to Nelson about
a year ago ami rustled for insnrance
here for several mouths, lie was
successful and after working tlie town
went to Kossland. where be hus been
since located, coming to the city
only occasionally. J, II. Brock, who
was in Nelson a day or so ago, went
oo to Kossland to institute a search for
the missing man. Mr. Brock is general agent for the (ireat West Insurance
company of whicli McLeod was un
agent. In the ordinary course of his
business McLeod came aud went frequently, so his absence did not create
any particular interest until a few
days ago. when it was found that In-
had left most of his baggage and his
private papers at tlie Allan house and
iiad not been seen for several weeks.
The proprietor reinembeied lliai McLeod had spoken of going to tlie Velvet mine to solicit business, and it is
thought ibat the missing man may
have attempted to reach the mine,
got lost and perished in the hills; It
wns remembered that McLod hud
taken with bim on bis last trip a
small valise. Had he left the country
for any reason it is natural lo suppose
he would have taken more luggage
and t'uit he would have destroyed his
papers before starling, j

McLeod was one of the (ireat West]
company's most trusted agents, that
his honesty was above suspicion and

people called to see McLeod for the
purpose of paying insurance premiums The missing nun came from

A Horrible Accident at the
Creistiam Chemical
Works.
Frankfort, Ky.. April 25.���The
uoileis of theGricshelm Electro Chemical works, near Oriesheim, exploded
this afternoon and the factory Caught
Are. Fifty persons are leported to
have been killed and 140 injured.
The three boilers of tbe works exploded. Tbe explosion was audible
here. The Frankfort lire engines
and ambulances have gone to the
scene of the disaster.
Later.���The number of dead and injured is estimated ut one hundred and
fifty, but cannot be determined, until tlie list of employees in the chemical works can be compared with the
survivors. The lire continues to
burn, although the fire department
and troops aie trying to prevent its
spread ing.
The flames apparently originated
by tlie blowing up of vats of chemicals in the explosive depaitnient of
tlie works at .1 o'clock this afternoon.
Tbey spread with frightful speed to
the adjacent buildings and then over
tbe river main to Schwanheini. Then
theie wus a second explosion the
fumes and gasscs of burning chemicals
made it impossible to stay in the
vicinity. The inhabitants of Oriesheim were ordered to leave the village
which they did, flocking to Frankfort.
The lust explosion occurred at 7:30
p. m. and when it was ascertained
that no further danger was anticipated the inhabitants returned to their
homes. At half past eight the fire
was still burning in the centre and
the work o' extricating the bodies
from tlie^debris was being curried out
by torch light, gas light notbeingob-
tainable. All railway traflie at
Frankfort was stopped timing the fire
except for trains currying the injured, li is still impossible to say
definitely how numerous are the victims.

SITUATION AT VICTORIA.
Beyond the mere fact that there is
an extiourdinury mix-up iu the leg'
Islature, which involves the complete
disruption of all party alliances previously existing, too little information
is at hand at this writing upon which
to base a prediction as to the outcome
of the strained situation. Dispatches
received yesUrday evening state that
a government caucus ivas attended by
the boiling members and that the gov'
eminent, railway policy will be
amended to meet the latter . wishes.
If this is done   the  government   will
have taken a big step towards freeing
itself from some of the cntjnglementH
which tnltfllt result in disaster: but
it seems quite clear   that one result of
til isis will he   the   formation of   a
new party under the leadership of

left Ihe old Opposition party foi good

Out of a total of 171 smallpox cases
found in Chicago between November
30th last antl the 10th of April, 110
had never been vaccinated. (If tbe
remaining thirty-one cases twenty-
nine were adults, with slight and unsatisfactory scars, the most recent being twenty-nine years old. Two out
of the 171 had scars that indicated
successful vaccination, and the most
recent of these was  made   more   than
to lie no thirty years' interval such as
was inflicted upon the repcllers of the
Fenian raids. The medal itself will
he a silver one,and will be granted all
officers and men of the British, Indian and Colonial forces, and to ull
nurses and nursing sisters who actually served in South Africa between
October 11. 180(1, and a date to be fixed in the future. A number of clasps

Army Order: "A clasp, inscribed
'Paurdeberg,,' will be grunted to all
troops within seven thousand yards
of General Cronje's final laager be'
tween midnight of Ihe   17th and mid
collected by the Chicago Record-Herald, and upon them it bases strong arguments in favor of vaccination. Such
figures dispose of the arguments of
Hie other side very effectively.
CURRENT COMMENT
IS IT A CRISIS'.'
There bus been a subtle something
in the atmosphere of the Legislative
Chamber for several duys which indicates that there is a storm of some
kind brewing. It is realized by the
members and the mun on the street
that at any time there may be a crash
and a scene of political coniiision snili
as we have grown somewhat accustomed to during the past few eventful
night of   February 26th,    1000  und lo  i'Ka,s of our provincial   history.    The
'government   party   has    never    been
conspicuous for its solidarity. The ad-
all troops within seven thousand
yards uf Koodoo's Hand Diift between
these dates. A clasp inscribed 'Drie-
fontein' will be granted to all troops
with army headquarters and Lt.-Gen.
French's column, i. e., the left and
centre columns, which advanced from
I'op.ur drove on March loih, 1000,
A clasp inscribed 'Jobannesberg,' will
he granted to all troops who on May
.'.ith, 1000, were north of and east and
west line through Klip River Station
(exclusive), and east of tbe north and
south line through Krugersdorp Sta-
ioii (inclusive). A clasp inscribed
'Belfast' will be granted to all troops
who,on August .(ith or 27th, 1000, were
east of a north and south line drawn
through Won-rionlein (the garrison
anil troops quartered at Wonderfon-
tcin on their dates will not receive
this clasp.) and west of a north and
south line through Dalinauutha Station,und north of an east and west line
through Dalmanuthn Station. A
clasp inscribed 'Cape Colony' will be
granted to all troops in Cape Colony
at any time between October 11, lHilli
and a date to be fixed hereafter who
receive no clasp for an action already
Specified in the Cape Colony or the
'Natal' clasp. A clasp inscribed
'Orange Free State' will be granted
to all troops in Orange River Colony
at any time between February .8,
1900, and a date to be hereafter fixed,
who receive no clasp which has heen
already specified for an action in the
Orange River Colony. A clasp inscribed 'Transvaal' will be granted to all
troops in tlie Transvaal at any time
between May 24,1000, and a date to be
hereafter fixed, who receive no clasp
for an action in the Transvaal which
has been already specified"
ministration was only accepted us a
"tentative" one by the members in
the first place. A promise of reconstruction on more acceptable lines
wus given before it was accorded
even tin- temporaly confidence of the
bouse. Winterer "the difficulties that
blocked the way towards the carrying
out of this particular pledge may
huve been once, they are immeasurably greater now. The administration has been given a fair trial and
the house seems to he slowly falling
into the opinion of the country that
it has been found wanting, The finance mnister has no doubt all along
been quite willing to take up the tusk
said to huve been allotted to bim in
London, but the other objectionable
elements could not be provided for so
readily. The opening of constituencies, notwithstanding the weakness of
the opposition, would prove beyond
doubt that the government has not
now, if it ever had, the confidence of
tbe country. It owes its existence to
an accident���to an arbitrary exercise
of power whicli the electors could not
but condemn and take chances on the
formation of an administration representative of their will. The government has not lived to tills day because
of any strength which it possessed as
n whole although there arc no doubt
good men in it, but because of the
fact that so many of the members arc
irrevocably bound over in their antagonism to the leader of the opposition.
Tlieie aie now at least tlnee parties
in the house, with possibly the Duns-
muir-C. P. It. alliance the strongest if
it can gathet within its fold certain
of the opposition stalwarts with
whicli it is said to be coquetting.
| It is, of course, within the bounds
of possibility thnt nil difficulties may
be temporarily smoothed away when
the written pledges demanded have
been given. But such a settlement
can at the best be but temporary.
Confidence iu governments onec destroyed cannot be restored except by
reconstruction. ��� Victoria Times.
Mil. WHYTE'S PROMOTION,
The Montreal tla/ette alluding to
the C.P.R. change*) recently announced remarks that the tremendously increased volume of business which
bus down in of late from the Northwest upon the Canadian Pacific, the
many problems which daily present
themselves for Immediate solution,
a_d the fact that competing transcontinental roads have selected as their
headquarters cities in the centre of
tbe continent has given Mr. Shaughnessy food for u good deal of thought
before fully deciding upon the nature
of the re-organization, which he declared some time since must eventually take place. What he wanted was
a strong right arm in the west, the
great ftfrafflo-giving section of the road
over which he so ably presides. For
this position Mr.  Whyte   hus   been se^

WHITE   MAN   TURNED  YELLOW.
(ireat consternation was ielt by the

turning yellow. His skin slowly
cl_iuged color, also bis eyes, and be
suffered terribly. His malady was
Yellow Jaundice. He wus treated by
the best docotrs, but without benefit.
Then he wus advised to try Electric
Hitters, the wonderful Stomach and

QUESTION ANSWERED.
Yes,August Flower still has the largest sale of any medicine in the civilized world. Your mothers and grandmothers never thought of using any
thing else for Indigestion or itilious-
ness. Doctors were scarce, und they
seldom heard of Appendicitis, Nervous

They used August Flower t<- clean out
the system and stop fermentation of

giving splendid satisfaction. J.
I.uiug Stocks is the authority for the
statement that when the crew at the
mine is increased several of the baby
drills will be installed. At the Queen
Hess in the Slocan camp the work is
confined to development, and the same
applies to the Highland in the Ainsworth camp. Both the latter are silver-lead propositions and have been
adversely affected by the drop in lead
and the increase in smelting charges.
It is understood that the company hns
a comprehensive programme of work
mapped out in event of matters taking
a turn for the better.
At the Athabasca mine the water
supp'y is now in Hist class shape and
the compressor is operating to its full
capacity. The next development of
interest at the Athabasca will be
when the Exhcequer property is started and ore is being shipped to the cy.
