friendship but to give renewed expression to the old friendly nations
natural to tho triple relationsnip of

Health Officer Issues a Challenge to Antl-Vacclna-
Asks them to Supply Nurses
for Quarantine Hospital,
Minneaolis, Feb. 15,���Health Commissioner Hall, who bas become
wearied of the efforts ol the anti-
vaccina'.ionists to escape and prevent
vaccination, issued a challenge to
those wbo believe vacocination is
objectionable to produce two of tbei
number for duty at the quarantine
hospital where there are a score or
more afflicted witb the disease.
None of the present staff of nurses
have bad smallpuax but all have been
successfully vaccina'od and none bas
contracted the disease during the
three months of their service among
victims. Dr. Hall claims that the
efficiency of vaccination can now be
proven by having two uuvaccinated
nurses put on dutv. The auti-vaccination people bave decided to accept
Dr. Hall's challenge and have promised to produce two women for duty
who have never been vaccinated. The
anti-vaccinatiomsts believe tbeir
nurses will prove as immune to the
disease as have the others.
The opponents of vaccination have
appealed to the eourts and been
beaten. Many in the Twin Cities
are keeping their ohildren from
schools rather than submit to compulsory vaccination. They accordingly
were willing to jump at the chance
Dr. Hall has given to prove what they
believe the experiment will show.
Ice Boats Carry  Them  to the  Island
Charlottotown, P. E. I., Feb. 15.���
Winter communication this year haB
aa usual, been attended with difficulty
and discussion Last season tbe two ice
steamers Minto and Stanley ran together on the Georgeton Plctou route,
each leaving port in thc morning
when poBslble-and both oarrying mails
and nassengers During tbe coldest
period the to boats became tied up for
a fortnight, and the province was
without mails for the greater part of
tbat time. One of tbe steamers became
stuck in the ice and the other could
not leave port. Barring this interruption, tbe service was kept up regularly.
This Beason the eastern people, contending that the Summerside-Cape
Tormentine route was worthy of trial,
suoceeded in huviug the Stanley
placed there, while the Minto was put
on the Georgetown-Plctou 'route. Last
year a special train, paid for by the
Postoffice department, connected with
the winter boats'���an arrangement in
force ever since a wintor steamer was
pnt on.
At tho beginning of the season tbe
mails were sent by tbe Stanley, bnt
as the Postoffice department declined
to pay for a special train, and the
Railway department considering that
the other department bad a right to
carry out the same arrangement as ln
other years, refuso to do so, and tho
people Wero obliged to suffer consid.
eruble inconvenience from delayed
mails, Recently the Stanley failed to
make trips with tbe desired regu-
luiity, and tbe mails were transferred
to the Minto, which was making satisfactory connections, A special train
bas been put on, and things are moving serenely onoe moro. The placing
of the Stanley on the western route is
an experiment which is worth the
trial at least, though many doubts are
entertained of its feasibility. It has
naturally caused a rivalry between
the west and east, each claiming tne
honor of being the winter port.

Mysterious Death of a Prosperous Young Merchant.
Beautiful Young Woman Arrested Charged With
New York, Feb. 15.���Walter S.
Brooks, a young commission merchant
of tbis oity, was found dying in a
room in the Glen Island hotel, West
Cortliin.lt street, last midnight, and
after his death, several hours later, in
a hosiptal. tbe police werenotified and
took in charge Florence Burns, a
handsome Brooklyn girl, with whom
Brooks had for some time been beeping company. She will probablv be
arraigned in court tomorrow morning.
A negro bell boy identified the girl as
the one who came to the hotel with
Brooks, but Miss Burns denies she
was the one, and declared that she
met Brooks at his place of business
early on Friday evening, leaving him
at 0.30 o'clock to go to her home in
Brooklyn. Certain it is, howover,
that Brooks and some young woman
went to the Glen Island early on Friday evening registering as "J. Wilson
and wife."
It was midnight when the bell boy
Bmelled the gas in cne of the hallways. Brooks' room was broken into
and he was found lying across the bed
unconscious and the gas pouring from
the burners. Doctor Sweeney was
summoned and noticed what he
thought was a simple cut on the back
ot the head. Later he discovered it
was a bullet wound and Brook's removal to a hospital followed. The
girl was arrested at her Brooklyn
home. At tbe police station she did
not flinch at the examination through
whicb sue was put, maintaining she
did not spend the night with Brooks.
The bell boy, however, picked her out
from three women liued up before him
as the one who had been at the hotel.
Dr. Sweeney and the police put aside
the theory of selfmurder beoause there
were no powder marks around the
spot where the bullet entered the head
of Brooks.

utmost strength of twelve men to carry
to tbe grave the casket containing the
remains of Dennis Leahy, whose
funeral has just been held. The uead
man weighed 700 pounds. His enormous weight bad been acquired within
tbe last ten years. When he turned

They Ask the C.P.R. to Not Play the

Indian Head, N.W.T., Feb.15.���The
flrst annual meeting of the Territorial
Grain Merchants' association has just
been held, delegates being present
fiom tbe principal points of the wheat
belt extending from Moose .law to
Moosomin. Tbe greatest enthusiasm
prevailed. The organization was completed and the association starts cut
upon a career of boundless usefulness. W. R. Motherwell presided,
opening the meeting in an address
pointing out the disabilities tha grain
growers are now suffering, and suggesting reforms which are necessary
if thia western country is to progress
as it should.
Committees on credentials, resolutions, finance and legislation were
appointed and their reports came up
for discussion in tho afternoon.
Hon. Mr. Bulyea, Territorial commissioner of agriculture, made an important speech in which be pointed
out tbe great influx of people to the
TerritoiieB and the necessity for moving out tbe wheat now in tbo blockade in order to make room for next
summer's crop. The Canadian Pacifio
had admitted its inability to cope
with the situation and he suggested
that the force of public opinion he
directed towards compelling the railway to carry the grain to Winnipeg
then over the Canadian Northern to
Poit Arthur and fill up the available
storage capacity there and also to
carry grain via Moosejaw and the Soo
line to Duluth at the same rate as to
Fort William, There was storage for
ten million bushels at Dulutb, which
could be utilized in tbis way. The
Canadian Pacific not being able to
handle the grain over its own line
should not act the dog in the manger,
but should prevent the calamity of
impending loss by carrying at i poolal
rates to Duluth.
A number of strong resolutions were
passed, deputations appointed, olliocrs
elected and arrangements completed
for a thorougn organization all over
the Teiritories.

j Relations With Germany Are
Strained to a Serious
Europe Interested In Probable
Status of the Philippines.
London^ Feb. 15.���What the Saturday Review now terms Lord Cran-
bornes "indesretion" would doubtless
have brought upon the government
severe critioism had not the Anglo-
Japanese treaty diverted public attention, and bad not tbe alliance been
generally regarded as a stroke of
diplomacy. As it is, the dispute has
served to strain to a really serious
point rilations between Great Britain
and Germany, which were none too
harmonious prior to the first question
of the subject asked by Henry Norman
in the Houso of Commons. Among
diplomats in London the controversy
is generally regarded as offsetting the
benefits of what had been privately
termed "England's coup in China."
An influential member of the Spanish
diplomatic service, now here, said to
a representative of the Associated
Press: We view the squabble with
considerable amusement, but have no
intention of putting in an oar.
Should we sav all we know, our relations with several of tbe European
powers which ure now quite satisfactory might be seriously impaired.
Moreover, we are not in the habit of
breaking tbe hard and fast laws of
diplomatio secrecy. We are naturally
pleased, however, that the affair has
brought out tbe fact that we practically gave in to all the conditions
demanded by the United States and
tnat our submission, on whieh tne
ambassadors deliberated on April
I4th,1808, was suppressed.
This allegation of the suppression
of Spain's submission is also discussed
at length in English official circles,
where it is declared tbat unless a
satisfactory explanation is forthcoming, the incident will be banded down
to history as a repetition of Prince
Bismark's action in regard to the Ems
There are indications tbat pour
parlers have recently been exchauged
between some of the European powers
regarding the Philippines, exactly for
what purpose or wilh what prospect
of materializing into definite action it
is impossible at present to say. However the Associated Press is able to
state that there has recently been a
keen recrudescence of interest in
Downing street and at other chancellories in the conditions prevailing in
the Philippines and the attitude of
United States toward them. Whether
this bas any connection with tho
Anglo-Japanese treaty is only a mat-
tor for surmise, but that an important
international undeicurrent exists in
regard to the probable hiatus of these
islands, is undeniable.

Several Hritish Columbia journals
have recently shown much agitation
over the assumed superior, not to say
sinster, influence of James ,1. Hill, in
the matter of coal snpply from the
mines of the Kooten&V district in
Canada, says the Monetary Times.
It is alleged that Bill has obtained
control of the Grow's Nest Pass Coal
company, and that he is about to so
manipulate matters that the United
States smelters south ot the boundary
line can obtain all the Canadian coal
they want at low rates, while Canadians must pay high prices. This
rathor alarming report lias caused us
to look into the conditions really
A dozen years ago, or more, an
offer was made by the Rritish Columbia governsueut of 20,000 acres of land
per mile to any parties who would
build a line of railway to dcvlop the
coal deposits known to exist nt the
Crow's Nest Pass. And ten thousand
acres of ooal bearing lands near the
Elk liver were bought, abont the
year 1802, by the Kootenay Coal company, whose successors arc the Crow'n
Nest Pass Coal company, situate to
tlie east of Elk river, and extending
from north of Coal creek to Morrissey
Creek, B. C. In ls',17, or thereabout���a
oharter having been previously granted to the British Columlba Southern
railway���au agreement was effected
between this road, the Crow's Nest
Coal company and the Canadian
Pacific railway.for the construction of
a road which should tap and develop
this valuable coal-bearing section of
British Columbia. Such construction
was deemed to be in the public
interest. A portion of the lands
granted by the governmont of British
Columbia to the British Columbia
Southern railway, also east of the
Elk river and adjsiining tlio lands of
the original purchase, was taken over
by the Crow's Nest people, who bo-
came liable to the conditions imposed
by virtue of that concession.
The Crow's Nest Pass road having
been built, the company came under
certain obligations. For example, it
was provided by tho government that
the prioe charged for coal by tho company should not cxeeod two dollars
por ton on board cars at the minos.
This arrangement was .'oi the protection of the people of Western Canada.
Again, a stipulation was made by the
C. H. R. foi its own protection, as a
large consumer, that the profits of tlio
coal company were not to excocd "a
leasonable price," that is to sny, 75
cents per ton prollt. Further, the
Dominion government insisted upon
receiving 50,000 acres of these coal
lauds as security for the due perform-
ane ol covenants, And tlie C.P.K. or
their part were given six suctions,
eiiual to H.H-IO aores of theho valuable
lands, siibjos.'t, however,to the restriction that for ton years from 1SU7 the
C.P.R should not mine coal. It would
seem, then, that what with restrictions as to price to be charged for coal
and the giving up of some 51.DOO acres
of its lands, the Crow's Nest Coal
people had given reasonable hostages
for good behavior,
They went to work developing at a
great rate, not only mining coal hut
ranking coko, the srrcltors of Kootonay demanding coke in great quantity. We are not told hov much was
expendel iu the years previous lo 1001,
probably from one to two million dollars, but In that year their expenditure wo�� 11,045,000, as follows:
In   plant,     machinery   and
buildings '   $   H.ID.OOO
In wages and  salaries      808,000

more than half enuie to Ontario; much
of it wont to Quebec and even Nova
Scotia, for miuhineiy. And the total
of their pay roll h-is boen steadily increasing until for the month of Decern
her last year it was (01,J01. In tho
erection ol coke ovens nt Fernie and
thereabout,   tbo   company   spent,   we

and their production and sale of coal

I This was very satisfactory progress
indeed. But is 1000 came the miners'
strike in the Kootenay district; production of ore fell off, and the consumption oi coke at the smelters fell
from thousands to hundreds of tone,
and finally, for three or fonr months,
the smelters were closed and ealeo of
coke in British Columbia were absolutely nil.
In these circumstancs, in order to
retain their men and to keep their
coal-raising and coke-producing plant
at work, the company had to look
about for other markets, seeing thai a
change in the mining laws or a stikc
of miners could work such bavoo to
productive industry as was done in
the Kootenays in 1000. Owing to the
greatly superior character of the
Crow's Nest coal and coke to that produced ,in Montana, it had^been lonnd
possible to transport our coal to Washington state, and also to take Canadian coke through the mountains
arouud by Lethbridge and down a
narrow guage railway across the
boundary and sell it to the Ilntte and
Anaconda smelters in Montana. But
the profit was slender because of the
long haul over an ill-equipped road.
Here, however, was a steady market
offered, which coneumed 5,000 tons
per dny and wanted this better coal.

America and its connections eon-
trolled j all tha railway mileage for
hundreds ol miles to the south along
the boundary. A direct route was
needed, to get tbis coal south instead
of making an expenive detour eastward, and the Crow's Nest people set
about getting it, A Canadian charter
was secured for a road from tho ..coalfields due south to the boundary, and
this is expected to be ready for work
in six months' time. J. J. Hill has
agreed to build southward from the
boundary an Amercan connection of
this railway, and this, too, is under
construction. To secure Hill's cooperation in the supplying of Canadian
coal to the Montana mining region,
he wiib admitted some months ago a
shareholder of the Crow's Nest Coal
Oo., and he bought a three-tenths
interest, at a premium, paying $800,-
000 for $500,000 of the stock, extra
shares being issued to him for the
purpose. Upon this last-mentioned
fact has been based a story that Hill
bus got control of the Crow's Nest
Coal company, and that the interests
of the consuming publij of the Kooto-
nays have been sacrificed to Mr. James
Juggernaut Hill (for Bo these B. C.
journals would designate him) and
his American associates.
We are unable to see the dangerous
and destructive etiaraoter of the transaction. If the situation had beeu re
versed, and American producers of a
superior Montana coal had arranged
to carry it by direct rail route across
tho border, to serve tbe interests of
Canadian smelters, it would perhaps
have been oonsidored a clever move.
Mr. Hill does not control the Crow's
Nest company, be is rot even a director of it, nor has he a single director
representing him, but he does help lt
to sell Canada's coal to Americans.
And the same safeguards exist that
havo always existed to protect the
rights or reasonable claims of the
Canadian Pacific railway and the
Canadian government in the premises.
The malt used in British Columbia
is brought in from abroad and costs
about lf.10 a ton. The Kulmoops Sentinel is endeavoring to induce tlie
farmers who raise barley in that
vicinity to erect a malt house. The
plan would only cost $5,000. Barley
in tho vicinity of Kamloops costs
about $20 per ton and as the malt sells
for $80 it is obvious that there would
bo considerable prollt in tho business.

complete apt oi teeth, to regain bis
lioalth by thoroughly chewing his
food, but he had an experience that is
well worth knowing of.
''Instead of improving I continued
tu lose Btrengh," ,ho says, "until 1
was a mere moving skeleton. I tried
a nuinbor of propured foods but none
ol thorn helped me until I got Grape-
Nuts. The flavor pleased my palate
at once. I soaked the food in cream
ami got along with it nioely. Within
a few days I noticed that I was not
so tired aud jaded. Gradually I
grew stronger, so I left off all other
foods and took only Grape-Nuts.
My old time vigor came baok and in
two months I gained 17 pounds. This
was romaikablo for I am of spare

To have tbe cars running again in

necessary for the past few days.

Mr. 'Jilmore said that Mr. Martin had

Circulars fiom a Oerflian state lottery have been received by a number
of persons in the city this week. The
phraseology of the circular is most
peculiar, having evidently been
written by one who had learned
English from books only. One paragraph reads: "After the drawing we
inform our customers lrom the result
of their participation, joining the
official prize list and forwarding the
prizes to all countries. Each customer
can also let cover the amount of the
obtained gain by a banking establishment by delivering the prize tioket."

At present none of the steamers or
railway trains leaving Nelson on
Sundays carry mail. This is being
found quite an inconvenience to the
business part of the community aud a
movement is on foot to nave an alteration made. There is a train out on
the Spokane Falls and Northern railway but no mail goes by it; the
Crow's Nest steamer leaves early in
the morning but it does not carry
mail, ncitner does the steamer for
Kaslu and Kootenay lake points leaving in the afternoon. Another great
convenience to business men would be
the oarrying of mails by tho morning
train over the C. P. R. for Trail and
Kossiand. The mail from Rosslanu
by tbe S.F. and N. arrives at 6 o'clock
p.m. and that via the C.P.R. at 10.10
p.m. These mails are distributed the
same night but after business hours.
In tbe ordinary course of events the
answer to a letter from Rossland
would be too late to catch the S. F.
and N. mail which leaves the upper
station at 10.80. If that mall is
missed there is no opportunity of
forwarding the letter until 0.40 in tbe
ovening by a mail that reaches Ross-
laud at 10.40, so that almost two days
are consumed before the Rossland man
gets a reply to his letter to Nelson.
If the correspondences originates in
Nelson ths conditions are no better.

New York, Feb. 15.���Eight blocks
of land on the South Brooklyn water
front have been bought as a site for
one of tho largest freight teiminals
