List of Measures Which the
Government Will Bring
Down.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Ottawa, March 5.���The new Inter-
provincial bridge between Ottawa and

81,230, ()()(), and is one of the finest of
Its kind in the Dominion.
The premier today gave notice In
the house of a motion to give government business precedence on Thursday. In this connection the premier
said that it was expected that practically all the measures the government
contemplated bringing in tins session

alien labor aot.
There may be some minor measures later on. The 'government will

Mr. Mulock's resolution authorizing
/the governnifept to guarantee the payment of 3V; of the principal sum of
��2,000,(100, the estimated cost of the
Pacific cable. Mr. Mulock In this
connection pointed out that the original coit was estimated at i'l.7(io,(iou,
hut it had since been found tbat tbe
cost would exceed that sum. In this
connection he pointed out that the
government of New South Wales had
made an arrangment with the Eastern
Extension Telegraph and Cable Company. This would have some effect
on the enterprise before the house,and
it was proper that the house should
know this before taking action. Be
also announced that instead of the
various governments procuring money
for their part of the cost of the cable
themselves, the Imperial government
should make an entire loan and then
the other parties to the agreement
could provide a guarantee for their
share of the money so loaned. The
resolutions were passed and the bill
given its Brat reading.
On motion to go into supply,
Hughes, Victoria, called attention to
an Imperial parliamentary discussion
in whicli it was shown there was an
imression that all colonial troops were
paid 5s. per day. He brought up the
question that the matter of an equality of pay might come before the minister of mllltla. The house then went
into supply.

the unsatisfactory state of the asylum.
He ascribes tbe following causes in
brief: Excessive salaries to subordinates and nurses, too large a staff, unnecessary officials, such as shoemaker
and farm foreman, lack of economy in
supplies, lack of organization in
store's system, absence of system in
business department, defeotlve heating
arrangements and consequent big
fuel bills, undesirable and unattractive surroundings for patients, allowing refractory patients to occupy one
bed room, poor bedding and lack of
exercise for the patients. Mr. Clarke
recommends proper and elaborate
schemes of employment, biush making, carpenter work, gardening, purchase of farm lands for establishing a
from colony, and more drill and exercise.
Captain McKenzie, who has chnrge
of the arrangements for the Great
Northern car ferry from Victoria to
Liverpool, opposite New Westminster,
says he expects plans In a few days
from Frank Kirby, designer and
draughtsman for the Detroit-Dry Dock
and Shipbuilding Company, which
have designed some of the famous
Russian ferries. The ferry will be of
1,500 tons, 200 feet long, and will carry 12 cars. The barge Georgian has

THE_CITY.
TO VISIT THE WEST���
In private advices received in the
city yesterday was contained the information that it had been arranged
that His Royal Highness, the Duke of
York and party would visit British
Columbia on the return from Australia.
THE DOG TAX���
Poundkeeper "Bill" Herring is still
awaiting the arrival of the dog tags
which he ordered In the east on being
notified of the appoint ment to the post
in the municipal service.   He proposes
to have the section of the bylaw under
which   he   works   printed   on   posta
1
cards, one of these to be forwarded to
every Jog owner in tbe city. If tbe
gentle hint thus conveyed as to the
payment of taxes is not acted on
"Bill" will go on the warpath.
AT ROBSON YARD���
A switching engine and crew is now
boated permanently at tho Robson
yard, with the result that freight
business is materially expedited.
Formerly the crew of a train running
to Robson had to switch their trsin
before returning, but as the regular
yard outfit now makes up all trains,
the Nelson crew can pick up a train
awaiting them on their arrival and
return without the vexatious delays
which have hampered their movements up to the present time.
REGISTRY OFFICE���
Land Relgstrar Macleod now has
the routine of the registry office moving smoothly and a large number of
deeds arc coming in for registration.
The main office Ib located at the north
side of the building and takes up the
entire width of the structure. The
tegistrar's private office is located at
the southwest corner and is comfortably furnished. The heavy echo in
the building due to the concrete
Doors, has been overcome by the use
of rubber matting.
ANNUAL WORK���
The engineer's department of the
local C. P. R. staff will have a couple
of woik trains running out of Nelson
within the next week or two at tha
outside. It is proposed to do considerable work in connection with the
improvements to the line between Nelson and Robson, including two large
rock cuts, considerable ditching and
ballasting and the replacing of a large
number of ties with new material.
The tenders for the supply of the latter are already filed, and something
will be known shortly about the disposition of the balance of tbe work.
IT WORKS' WELL���
The latest form in which nectar is
served by the white-coated fraternity
tht presides over Nelson's bars is the
"Carrie Nation cocktail." The
draught is compounded on the regulation cocktail lines, with the addition
of a dBsh of sherry to give a touch of
dryness and acidity calculated to remind the consumer of the personal
appearance of tl;e Kansas female cyclone,and if taken with immoderation
the new cocktail is guaranteed to
elevate its devotees to the identical
pitch of enthusiasm which animates
Mrs. Nation when Bhe start out on a
joint-smashing excursion, J
NO MORE ARCS-
No more arc lights are to be used in
lighting the city streets until the
facilities for furnishing power to operate them are provided. The dam on
Cottonwood creek is full, and it looks
as though there would not be another
shortage of water this season, hut as
the arc and incandescent lamps are
operated from the same machine, and
the power is not sufficient to keep
both going satisfactorily, it has been
decided to serve the iuterests of citizens first and cut out the big lights.
Until further arrangements can be
made the clusters of incandescent
lamps are answering the purpose of
street lights fairly well.
THE  ROARIN'  GAME.
Cold  Suap   Revive*  Interest���Several
Games at the Rink.
The local curlers had quite made up
their minds when the recent thaw set
in that the pastime was over for this
winter at least but the cold snap beginning on Monday has revived interest and several excellent games have
been played in the last day or two.
The ice is hard but the surface is not
in as good condition as might be desired. However, the enthusiasts bave
gone in for the pastime with unabated interest and appended will be found

RE BRITAIN
AND GERMANY
The Relations Are Fairly Discussed by Chancellor
Von Buelow.
Both Countries Should Live
In Peace. Friendship
and Unity.
Berlin, March 5.-The chancellor,
Von Buelow, in a speech today, laid
emphasis on the noble impulse aclunt
ing the Emperor in the matter of the
relations between Great Britain and
Germany,
"I observed two months ago," said
the chancellor, "and I repeat today,
that nothing is changed In our relations with Great Britain since I declared in the icichstag that we were
ready and willing to live in peace,
friendship and unity with Great Britain on tho basis of mutual consideration and absolute equality. If, therefore, the Emperor, by his preaenc
and demeanor in England, opened the
way for a continuance of such normal
GOOD RELATIONS
It is advantageous to the two countries. No doubt there are many sore
points between the two countries, but
all the same they are numerous and
necessary points of contact between
them. Good, neighborly relations are
required in both countries, and there
is no political reason why we should
not cultivate relations with Great
Britain in as careful a way as the
other powers do. The accession of the
new sovereign will not change the relations of Germany and Great Britain..
Perhaps there have been people who
hoped that the change would exercise
an unfavorable, influence, but these
expectations have not been realized,
whioh Is also advantageous to the
two powers and to the general peace.
"Herr Schlader said the Emperor's
visit violated our neutrality towards
the South African war, and I have
also seen pictures drswn of tbe Emperor's visit to England and the
NON-RECEPTION OF KSUGER
in Berlin. The parallels arc not correct. The avowed object of Presiden
Eruger's projected journey to Berlin
was to compel us in an unusual manner
to interfere in the South African complications, whereas His Majesty's visit
to England had nothing to do with
the South African war. I deny In the
most emphatic manner that the Emperor acted in any way contrary to
tbe interests of the country in adopting and responding to attentions.
"Regarding the decorating of Lord
Roberts with the Order of the Black
Eagle, that was solely a matter for
the King of Prussia to decide. It is a
qustion of the constitutional, personal
prerogative of the crown. Lord Roberta is not a political personage,therefore the distinction conferred is of no
political importance.
REGARDING PRUSSIA.
I am fully convinced that one ot tho
foremost endeavors of our policy Is to
cultivate the most friendly und most
neighborly relations. 1 am firmly
convinced that German and Russian
interests lie Bide by side in most matters, and there is no point where,
with mutual good will prevailing,
our lute'ests need clash. There is no
antagonism separating the two empires which cannot be bridged, but
here alBo we require complete equality. Germany Is no more dependent
on England than they are dependent
upon us."
SOLI) ONCE AGAIN
A special despatch to the Seattle
Post-Intelligencer, dated Spokane,
March 2nd, says: "Definite announcement was made here today of the
closing of the deal for the sale of tho
Crow's Nest Coal Company's mines
and business to American smelter interests. The amount of stock secured
was the controlling interest, and the
amount that is understood to havo
been paid the Canadian owners of the
great coal fields was 8>iu per share.
This is the culmination of a big deal
by which James J. Hill, of the Great
Northern railway, and associated with
him two other prominent capitalists,
J. Picrpont Morgan, and .1. I). Rockefeller, havo become the owners of the
highest grade coal mines in Western
Canada," Nslson Daily Miner, Wednesday,  March 6, igc\.

THE AMERICAN   VIEW.
For the information of the gentle
man who are so dogmatic in their
assertions that no element of danger
to Canadian interests exists in the
possibility of a charter being granted
Jim Hill and his associates to build a
line of railway to connect the Gieat
Northern with the Crow'a Nest coal
fields, we ask them to peruse the following American view of the situation,
contained in a special despatch from
Spokane to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer: "It will be of great advantage to
the American smelters, who will be
able to use the coke produced. The
move is viewed with much apprehension by tbe British Columbia smelter
interests, the Crow's Nest field being
their only source of coke supply, so
that the American trust is to be congratulated on a very tactful move, as
the British Columbia smelters are deprived of n very great essential In the
dcvelnpmt lit of their industry. Application has already been made to the
Dominion parliament for a charter
for a line of railway from the conl
mines iu Crow's Nest pass tc connect
with the Great Northern system, so
that transportation to American
smelters will thus be absolutely controlled. The coke and other products
from the mines is of a very high
grade, and in great demand by the
American smelters. The coke will be
distributed through Montana and as
far south as Omaha, and the advantage to American mining interests
will be very great. Several weeks ago,
when the permanent shipment of coke
to the American side was first suggested, the Canadian Pacific railway
people put up a very strong fight, iu
an endeavor to head off tbe Great
Northern in any arrangement they
might attempt, although the deal, as
consummated,has been under negotiation anrt practically settled tor some
time. The opposition of the Canadian
Pacific riilway was based on the shortage of coke that would result to the
Kootenay smelters, in which the Canadian Pacific railway was interested,
if large shipments continued to be
made to the American side of the line.
But the opposition of the Canadian
Pacific railway was futile and the announcement of the deal is made on
the best authority."
Here it is stated that the American trust is to be congratulated on a
very tactful move, as tbe British Columbia smelters are "deprived of a
very great essential in the development of their industry." Suppressing
any inclination'which we may feel to
go into hysterics at such an an
noiiiicciiient, wo respectfully submit
that the boards of trade of Southern
British Columbia might very well
bave displayed more caution before
placing themselves on record as sup
potting an application for a charter
for a railway which will have the
effect of "depriving" the British
Columbia smelters of a very great
essential in tho development of their
industry.
ical subjects, of whioh u list is given
in the "Biography of the Royal Society of Canada." He received the degree of LLD. from Queen's University, 1800, aud from McGill University,
1801. In the same year he was awarded the Bigsby gold medal by the London Geographical Society for his services to the science of geology, and
he was elected a fellow of the Royal
Society. In 1863 he was elected president of the Royal Society of Canada.
In 1804 he was elected a corresponding
member of tbe Zoological Society of
London; in 1*03 a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement
of Science; in 1800 he was appointed
by the council of tbe British Association president of the geological section for the Toronto meeting of the
associatiou; and in 1807 he w
awarded the yearly gold medal of the
Royal Geographical Society for his
work as a whole. He was commissioner for Canada at the Paris Exhibition,
1900.
A GREAT LOSS.
Canada   has suffered a great loss by
the death of Dr.G. M.Dawson,director
of the geological survey.   He was well
known by reputation in the west.  His
work   on   the   geological   survey   was
done chiefly in   British Columbia  and
the Northwest Territories, and in the
discharge of  his official duties   he explored a large section of   the   western
country,   including a boat   journey of
1,300   miles, with one  portage   of   30
miles, from the   basin   of   the   Laird
river to   that of   the Yukon.    One   of
tbe most important of   his public services   was   in   connection    with   the
Behring   Sea   arbitration.    As one of
the   British   commissioners,    he spent
the Bummer of 1802 in the Behring Sea
region, for the   purpose   of   inquiring
into the conditions and   facts of  seal
life.    The report of the commissioners
constituted the case of   Her Majesty's
government   on   this   branch   of   the
subject,   nnd   was   of   great   service.
For his services on   this  occasion   he
received the   thanks of   the Guvcrnor-
General-ln-Council, and   the C. M. G.
from Her Majesty.    In addition1'to his
official reports, he was   the   author of
It is a very happy circumstance
that the practice exists in Nelson
whereby publicity is given through
the columns of the newspapers to the
constant increase In the population
which is not the result of immigration. It is doubtful if there is another city ou the continent of America
where the same publicity is given to
announcements of such new arrivals���
but that tloes not deter ns from saying
that Nelson's system of dealing with
the matter is   a very excellent one.
over the matter when it Is known that
Japa arriving at coast ports offer to
do all sorts of work for to per month !
Tlie complaint of the people of tbe
Boundary district that there are no
sittings of the supreme court in that
section is a very just one, and we
hope that the authorities may take
early steps to have the grievance
remedied.

His latest action Is to call attention
to the necessity of further precautions
being taken to ensure a pure milk
supply. He points out that the matter of surface water in this connection
requires looking into and proposes to
insist upon the dairies making connection with the city water mains
inside of thirty days.
The medical men of Nelson have,
very properly, we think, entered a
protest against the movement which
bas started in Victoria to secure
sweeping amendments to the Medical
Act. Should tbe suggestions which
have been put forward be adopted,
there is extreme likelihood of the
province being rapidly filled up with
quacks; and this is eminently undesirable.
The corporation of the City of Nelson will shortly forward a petition to
the legislature asking that the city
schools be turned over on the
same basis as the system by which
Vancouver and Victoria control their
educational Institutions. There will
be hardly two opin'ons about the expediency of such a move, and we hope
that the prayei of the petitioners may
be granted.	
The Quebec government is reported
to have declared that the present allowance of the Dominion government
to the provinces is entirely insufficient
and that Quebec intends seeing it is
raised. Well done, Qucbeul And
while you are about it, pleuBe do not
forget that there is a small place out
west called British Columbia which
has some claims for recognition in
the same respect.
Signs are not wanting that the
lakes of Kootenay and Siocan districts
will shortly become famous as resorts
for tourists; and in this connection it
is gratifying to be told that with the
inauguration of the Imperial Limited
service this season due prominence
will be given by the 0. P. R. in their
advertising matter to the attractiveness and advantages of these unsurpassable pleasure places.
Tbe annual convention of the Canadian 'Mining Engineers and Mine
Managers,- to be held under tbe auspices of the Canadian Mining Institute at Montreal shortly, will unquestionably prove of very great importance. British Columbia will be well
to the fore, as no less than seven
papers are to be read by men from
this province.
"Tlie Greenwood convention acted
very properly In passing a resolution
inviting His Royal Highnesathe Duke
of York to visit British Columbia on
his colonial tour. Similar action
ought to be taken by every city of

ed, if possible, in accordance with the
wishes of the people of the West.

Sir Wilfrid Laurier has decided not

The list of Nelson's industries has
been added to by the establishing of

The war office is getting a severe

CURRENT COMMENT
Is there to be a reconstruction of
the cabinet? Some of the Victoria
correspondents who have been exercising their wits, declare that Vancouver is to be represented directly in
tbe ministry. But Vancouver returned two Independents and two Opposition members. Can it be that Mr.
Dunsmuir is tired of office and would
willingly give up to the opposition'.'���
Vancouver World,
There is confidence in the Kootenay
that construction of the new line to
the coast will be commenced this
year, Because some surveyors who
have taken the field in conuecton with
the project travelled west on passes
i��sued by the Groat Northern, it is
further announced that Jim Hill will
back Mackenzie & Mann in its construction. The certainty of an opportunity to do this would be a liberal
return for the passes.��� Columbian.
The halls of our legislatures are
haunted by railway- promoters. Day.

must be wrestling with the mighty
problem of sifting the legitimate
enterprises from the speculative men.
They are paying the penalty which
attaches to the bonus system of en
couriigiug the construction��� of rail
ways. Not that the system Is' wrong
under the peculiar conditions existing
in Canada, but that a discrimination
is required in selection which is generally lacking in those who are called
upon to deal with the matter.���Victoria Times.
Sir Henri Joly's speech at the opening of the legislature was thoroughly
neat aud businesslike. It is a good
sign of the times that public men are
at last beginning to abandon the old-
fashioned, prolix and verbose misconceptions of oratory which have tried
the nerves of so many generations of
listeners. Very few* men are orators,
but every man can talk common sense
if he tries, and if he puts himself out
of mind and is thoroughly in earnest
over his subject. The average audience is very quick to distinguish .the
sincerity or otherwise uf a speaker���
and draws its own conclusions.���-The

THE CITY WHARF���
The public works committee of tho
city council meets this week, and one
of the matters to be gone into is that
of repairing or altering the city
wharf while tho wator Is' at low
mark. The shippers who agitated for
Improvements at the wharf some time
ago have had nothing to say regarding the matter for the past year, from
which the inference might be drawn
that the necessity for alterations on a
large scale is not as pressing us was
formerly the case. In any event the
committee is likely to make some recommendation to tho council dealing
with    the   matter of   changes nt   the
wharf.

Frew arrived in Winnipeg from Ran

duties.
THE (IUN CLUB���
There is a possibility that the Nelson Gun Club may not be reorganized
this year. A number of the old members have lost interest In the club,
and do not propose to go in for the
pastime this summer. It is hoped that
the remaining members will malic u
strong effort to keep the organization
alive.
THE CENTRl'Y FL'ND-
Rev. Dr. Wright, acting pastor of
St. Paul's church, haB been empowered by the synod of Kootenay to look
after the interests of the century mill

just from tbe coast.
QUIET IN LONDON���
J. Fred Ritchie, a well known
Itossland mining man, was in the city
yesterday ou business. Mr. Ritchie
states that in a letter to him, Jean
Richard, the Belgian engineer Jwho
visited Nelson recently in the interests of a prominent London syndicate,
remarked that it was next to impossible to secure a company to take up a
mining proposition in London at the
present time. He was about to leave
for the Gold Coast to look into the reported strikes there.

HEALTH DEPARTMENT.
GOOD CUSTOMER-
Three Sear Old Boy.
The right kind of food will work
wonders in the way of changing a
sick person to a healthy one, and by
the same rule keep a person in good
health.
Arthur W. Fanning, 14 Throop St.,
Chicago, 111., had such a remarkable
experience himself with Grape-Nuts
Food, tbat he recommended it to a
friend for his child, for whom the
parents were unable to find food tbat
would agree.
It was supposed the child's stomach
had been ruined by the use of medicines. When he was put on Grape-Nuts
he began to improve and Mr. Fanning
says, "I will wager that, although he
is but three years old now, he Is the
best single handed customer the Post
um Cereal Co. have today. He has become big and strong, and is in perfect
condition. 1 have received thanks
many times from his mother for
bringing Grape-Nuts F'ood to their
attention. The whole family are
using the food now.
"My own experience was remarkable. I had, for years, a stomach
trouble, I got so that I could not eat
anything for breakfast except an orange; all solid food and meat being
out of the question.
"When I was induced to take on
Grape-Nuts I did so with fear and
trembling, but found out,to my pleasure and surprise, and great benefit to
ray health, that I had a food I could
hold on my stomach, and could do a
���good forenoon's work.
"I have not bad a headache since
using Grape-Nuts Food, and in one
yeai 1 have gained Hi pounds. I am
so much of an advocate of tlie food
that people Hiispcct me of being Interested in the Co. I have won over a
number of friends who are now using
it, and speak in the highest terms
of It."
Grape-Nuts Food wins its own way
without any trouble. It can be borne
by tbe weakest stomach, and contains,
tbe strongest food elements known.
All   first-class   grocers   sell   Grape-
Nuts Food made at the  pure food factories of the Postum Cereal Co,, Lim

REDUCTION AT ONCE���
A communication has been received
from the Mainland Fire Insurance
Underwriters' Association in which it
is stated in response to a query that
the proposed reduction in rates for
Nelson if improved fire protection
methods are adopted along the line
laid down in the communication forwarded recently by the secretary,
would go into effect at once. This
means that citizens would not have to
await the expiration of existing policies before reaping the benefit of the
reduced rates, and will probably
strengthen the hands of the city coun
cil in dealing with the matter of reorganizing the fire brigade.
WERE JUSTIFIED���
The members of the volunteer fire
department who recently resigned and
took with them certain artioles which
the remaining members insist belong
to the organization as a whole and
not to any individuals, state that
eleven of the sixteen members of the
brigade voted to dispose of the articles
in a certain manner and that this
justified their action. As to the 850
balance claimed to be in the treasury,
it is asserted that when the department was reorganized the treasury-
did not contain a cent, the available

TALKED OF NELSON���
The Spokesman-Review in its issue
of yesterday prints a lengthy interview with Mr. II. W. R. Moore, which
it introduces thus: "H. W. R. Moore,
until recently night editor of the Nelson, B.C.. Miner, passed through Spokane yesterday on his way to Sitka,
Alaska, where he will take a position
with an English mining company,
which has extensive interests on Bar-
anoff island. Speaking of mining
conditions around Nelson, Mr. Moore
said: 'The prospects for a successful
mining season In the Nelson district
are very bright. The various properties in the vlcilnity of tbe town are
going steadily ahead, and several that
have been closed down will be opened
up again In the spring.' "
BUYING A TEAM���
Alderman John Irving, chairman
of the fire,water and light committee,
started out yesterday in quest of a
new team for the fire hall, as authorized by the cuoncil.- In company with
Chief Lillie, of tbe fire brigade, he
examined a local team which had been
recommended to tho authorities, but
tbe animals were not up to the standard, and were rejected. As this is
the only likely pair of animals in the
city, the committee will probably
have to go to Spokane foi the horses.
A pair of sound animals 1,400 to i.r,iui
pounds each, and otheiwise suited to
tho purpose, is desired. Chief Lillie
weighed the combination hose and
chemical wagon yesterday and discovered that the outfit weighed 4,490
pounds with Driver Jim Boyd on the
seat. An ordinary coal wagon will
run about 1,50(1 pounds, so it will be
recti that the Nelson fire team has no
ti illnj contract.
