stopped by the Russian authorites.

will be in course of construction this

Under the heading of submarine
boats, the admiralty report savs:
"Five of the type invented by Holland have been ordered, the first of
which should be delivered next autumn. What the fnture value of these
boats may be in naval warfare, can

be made with nearly all the great
steamship companies in which their
finest vessels will be held at the disposal of the admiralty for employraei.t
as armored cruisers when required.

Resolution Urging Parliament
to Grant Application for
a Charter.
That th. parliament of Canada
should grant tbe application for a
charter for a railroad running from
the Crow'B Nest coal fields to the international boundary is the opinion
of the railway and transportation
committee of the board of trade, and
a resolution to that effect was passed
at the meeting of the committee yesterday, says the Toronto Globe of
March 8. Only one member of the
committee opposed the resolution, Mr.
C. W. Band, and he offered an amendment, which was voted down.
There were present at the meeting.
J. F. Ellis, in the choir, and Messrs.
Edward Gurney, J. D. Allan, H. N.
Baird, C. W. Band, J. W. Wood,
Peleg Howland, W. E. H. Massey and
W. Inee, jr. The other members of
the committee not present were J. L.
Spink, A. E. Kemp, M. P., Hon, Lyman M. Jones and A. E. Ames. The
original lesolution before the committee was that referred to it for its consideration by the couneil of the board,
and which reads as follows:
'Whereas an application is now
pending before the Dominion parliament for a railway charter running
south from the Crow's Nest coal fields
to the international boundary, with a
view of obtaining railway communication between the Crow's Nest coal
fields and the American railway systems;
"And whereas It appears from the
reports of the geological survey of
Canada that there is an exhanstless
supply of coul In the Crow's Nest district ;
"And whereas coal and coke are
both finished products, all labor being
expended on Ihem in the country, and
every dollar that comes into tbe country In return for coal or coke exported makes the country just that much
richer,and the faimer.the rancher, the
miller, the merchant and the manu
facturer all profit thereby.
LARGE EXPENDITURES.
"And whereas the Crow's Nest Coal
company, as appears by the statement
of the president of tlie* said company,
is prepared, provided the said railway
charter is granted, to greatly extend
its operations in the said district, and
ta proceed with a development of the
coal areas of the said district involving an Immediate additional capital
expenditure of over 8ooo,ooi>, and in
the near future an annual wage bill of
beween two and tluee millions of dollars;
'And whereas such development
will mean the establishment of new
towns and the building up of large
and important business enterprises in
British Columbia, which will be
greatly to the advantage of the people
of Canada;
'And whereas the merchants, man'
nfacturers and other dealers In sup'
piles in Toronto, in common with
those of other eastern cities, have
greatly benefited by tha present development lo the Crow's Nest district,
and wonld derive still larger benefits
from an Increased development in the
future;
'And whereas we believe that the
construction of the said railway would
promote tbe development of our coun
try, Improve its material prosperity,
Increase the comfort and convenienee
of Its citizens, and directly benefit
the merchants, manufacturers and
dealeis of Toronto, as well as other
cities In Ontario;
"Be it therefore resolved, that we
most respectfully and strongly urge
upon the parliament ot Canada that
the application for the said charter be
granted, aud that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the minister of
railways."
BAND'S AMENDMENT.
The amendment Introduced by Mr.
C. W. Band was as follows:
"A resolution having been referred
to this committee dealing with the,
application for a charter for a railway In the Interests of the Crow's
Nest Coal Co.:
"And whereas the said application
appears to be in tho interests of one
corporation;
'And whereas there Is apparently a
conflict of opinion about the advisability of opening up at this early
date, and before there Is given adequate time and opportunity for the development of Industries in Canada,the
section of conntry referred to by railway communication to United States
territory;
"And whereas It appears that Canada possesses an Inexhaustable supply
ot coal, suitable for coning purposes,
absolutely necessary for smelting, and
not found in any other place adjacent
to the mining district in the west;
"And  whereas It appears that the
development of the coal mines and
coking has not more than kept pace
with the development of mining and
smelting in British Columbia;
"And whereas there is every evidence to warrant the opinion that
milling and smelting interests will
increase rapidly in British Columbia,
and, therefore, it is questionable
policy to open up communication to a
foreign country, where these interests are weU established and competitive with our owp, as it would tend
to prevent rapid development in our
own country:
"And whereas it has been charged
that American interests have secured
a direct controlling interest in the
property of the Crow's Nest Coal company, and that the balance of available lands in British Columbia are
held out' of the market tinder an agreement with the said company;
"And whereas more complete and
full information will be forthcoming
when the said application for charter
will be brought before the railway
committee.
"Resolved, that this committee refer the resolution back to tlie council,
giving as their opinion that the present is not an opportune time to come
to a decided conclusion in the matter
until more fully informed as to tbe
full affect which such legislation
would have on the development of
mining and smelting interests in our
own country is better understood."
Mr. Elias Rogers appeared before
the committee aud explained the situation along the lines of his previously
published interviews and the address
of the president of tbe Crow's Nest
Coal company at the annual meeting
of that company. With the aid of a
map he also showed the committee
just where it was intended to construct the   proposed road.
SMELTER INTERESTS.
Another gentleman who addressed
the committee was Mr. G. M. Hysms,
who has large smelting interests in
Montana, and who wus passing
through the city on his way to New
York. Mi, Hyams, it is understood,
is one of the capitalists who purpose
erecting smelters in British Columbia
at convenient points for receiving
both the ore and the coal from the
mines of the Crow's Nest Company,
and to tbe committee lie strongly
urged that such a railway Bhould be
constructed. Mr. I'iyums pointed ont
the natural advantages in the. Canadian location. The committee, with
the exception of Mr. Band voted in
favor of the resolution calling for the
construction of the railway, and the
council of the board of trade will meet
on Monday to discuss It. Mr. Band's
amendment can be brought up   there.
The attention of Mr. Ellas Rogers,
managing director of the Crow's Nest
Coal company was directed lost night
to the statement in Mr. Band's
amendment that "American Interests
have secured a direct controlling Interest In the property of the Crow's
Nest company." He Baid: "The control of the company is now, and always has been, in the hands *of Canadians, and there is no reason whatever to anticipate their allowing It
to pass Into foreign hands. They are
satisfied tlie property is a good one,
and Intend to hold on to it."

ANOTHER   CONTINGENT.
Lieutenant George. 8. Beer
received a hint yesterday to the
effect that the Canadian government may shortly announce that
another contingent of 1,000 Canadians is to be raised for service
in   South   Africa   Immediately.
Further particulars aro not
forthcoming, but the statement
is made that the annnouncement
will be made public within the
next week   or two.
Tho proposition is decidedly
interesting aud evidences most
strongly the value which the Imperial government places on tbe
Canadians as recruits for the service in Africa.
Wliilo It Is probable that the
rush for enlistment would dot
equal that for the last contingent and those raised during
the last twelvemonth, tbe Nelson district can undoubtedly be
counted upon to furnish its
quota of good men,

six will serve two years and Mr. McLean will complete Mr. Mocleod's
term, which has a year to run.
The name of the institution will
not be changed. A resolution to this
effect was moved by Secretary Switn-
nell, hut the meeting decided that the
present was not an opportune time to
I make a change because the grant from
tbe government might be affected if
the hospital was known as a city institution.
At the director's meeting following
the general session officers were elected for the year as follows: Mayor
Fletcher, president; Dr. Quintan,
vice-president; Hamilton Byers,
treasurer.
The position of secretary was not
filled, Mr. Swsnnell expressing his
dsterminatlon not to accept the office
again. At the next meeting of the
directors an appointment will be
made.
THE LOCAL
LEGISLATURE
There was a decided upheaval in
hospital matterB yesterday at the annual general meeting of the Kootenay
Lake General Hospital Society. The
seven retiring members of the old
board were defeated in the election
for the new directorate and au entirely new board elected to carrv on
the affairs  of  the   association.    This
to
HOSPITAL IMPROVEMENTS.
The   New   Directorate    Planning
Enlarge the Building.
One of the first matters   which   the
of the general hospi
new directorate
j tal will take into consideration is the
'desirability of enlarging the building.
It   is     felt   that   the   present   main
building   is   not adequate to the   de>
came as a surprise to those   who were mand for accommodation and in some
not aware that certain matters at   is- ;quaitcis it is argued that the   cottage

sue in connection with   the   manage- to_y su]uUun t_ ^ ^ of afford.
ment of the hospital   had. given   rise lng extra Bpa���e #-, patj,._t8 and   will
to friction, but the outcome was fore- eventually     be     useful     only     as   a
shadowed bv events which   transpired nurses' home.    The   reason for this is
earlier   in "the   day.   Of  last  year's tbat a ���Mr*** building can  never be
board but three or four members remain, and the new directors have a
good majority. It now remains to be
seen if the  hospital  will continue  to
operated for hospital purposeseconom
ically.
A proposition is to be laid before
the directors to erect an addition to
the main building in   the   form of an
L" wing the addition completed last
improve in ' usefulness   and efficiency   -___.    In this  new wing it Ib propos
under.,,the new regime. As all the
new directors are business men, tbe
interests of the association are apparently in good hands.
The meeting at the board of trade
rooms was largely attended,the apartment not being large enough to accommodate the gathering. W. W,
Beer, president of the association,
opened the business by inviting the
members to appoint a chairman. On
motion, John Houston was requested
to officiate as chairman.
A communication was read from N.
T. Macieod tendeiing bis resignaion
as director, on the ground tbat his
future movements were uncertain.
This waB accepted. The reports of
the officials were then received.
The financial statement indicated
that the hospital hud received in
earnings 811,924 und in other directions sufficient to bring up the totul
revenue to 812,480.01. The disbursements for operuting were 89,052.92, on
building and equipment, 84,807.88,
and for deficit carried forward 8751.30;
total expenditure, 814,472.19; deficit
82,012.18.
Because of Judge Forin having been
called away to tlie bedside of his father at tho coast, no president's report
wus forthcoming, but Secretary
Swaunell submitted a statement from
the directors in lieu. The statement
dealt at some length with the affairs
of the hospital during the past year,
one of Its special features being the
appended section:
"The Institution has proved self-Sup-
portlg, as the members will be able
to see from the flnanoiul statement,
which shows that the exceSB of earnings over cost of npeiation wus 8'L-
871.64 which as been applied on lniild-
, ings erected during the term. The re-
Ipott shows a deficit of 82,012.18 but
the city grant of 82,000 for tlie current year will offset this and lenvo the
Boclety with two uores of ground and
buildings with equipment which
could not be replaced under 812,000,
Without a cent of indebtedness against
it. There lemains of course the accounts Incurred during the month of
February amounting to 11,608,05
hut these belong to the now year so
arc not taken Into consideration In
making the foregoing statement.
"The Increased efficiency of the institution will pethaps be best shown
by a comparison of the revenue from
paying patient- and the totul eurn-
mgs for the past three years:

"During the year a training school
for nurses has been started and tlie directors would cull attention to the
fact that although the staff has been
doubled In numbeis and efficiency the
increased cost has been trifling compared with the growth of Income."
Dr. Doherty, house physician, presented the statement of the year's
wbrk In the medical department.
During the year 308 patients were admitted, fil being free patients, 161
public ward pay patlcnW, and 60 private ward patients paying 815 por
week. On March 6, lllOO there were
eight patients In the institution, und
on Maroh 12 there were 38. In tho
year 340 were discharged of whom 3l>4
were well, 16 improved nnd one unimproved. Nineteen died, four of
whom passed uwuy within 48 hours
of admission. The death rate for the
year was 5.10 por cent.
The reports were received us read.
Election of drcctors was proceeded
with, tho nominations being: Mayor
Fletcher, E. 0. Travcs. Hamilton
Uyers, Dr. Quintan, Blake Wilson,
Mesdames Stocks and Woskes, George
Johnstone, W. W. Beer. Judge Forln,
W. Irvine and W. B. McLean. On a
ballot being taken the following were
declared elected: Mayor Fletcher,
II. Byers, Doctors Qulnlan and
Armstrong,   Blake   Wilson,
cd to locale the operating room, now
located in the front of the building
in a quarter not properly suited to
the ends of an operating room. It is
further proposed to have about 20
apartments in the suggested addition,
and the claim is made that the extra
accommodation thus afforded will
quiqkly justify the outlay.
A meeting of tho city practitioners
is to be called for the purpose of discussing the mutter und preparing a
report for submission to the board of
directors. It is maintained that the
practical experience of the physicians
in matters relating to the administration of hospitals is of great value to
the directors and the statement is
made that a feature of the new board's
policy will be that the advice of tbe
doctors will be sought ou all points relating to the improvement of the institution.

Next.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Victoria, March 12,-The debate today was purely a party one, being
based on the referendum motion of
Brown of New Westminster, It was
opposed by the government patty,
the main urgument being thut it
struck at the constitutional piivil-
eges of purlinment and British institutions. Curtis and Brown spoke in
support of the motion, the latter
holding that it Was simply an enlargement of the same principle now in
effect in municipal government. That
was necessary in provincial affairs,
he contended, as provincial representatives are re-elected every four years,
while municipal representatives are
elected every year, and are thus more
in touch with public sentiment.
The motion was voted down on a
stiaifht party vote of 11 to "3.
The remainder of the afternoon was
taken up with consideiation of the
amendments to the placer mines act,
the committee reporting progress.

THE FIGHT AT OTTAWA.
Politicians at the federal capital
are anticipating the liveliest fignt bo-
tween rival corporations which has
ever occurred in the history of Canada
when tne government is called upon
t) say jes or no to the application for
a charter for the Crow's Nest Southern railway. So important is the is-
Bue at stake, so keen will be the fight
for supremacy between the contestants
in the game, that it is even hinted
that Sir Wilfrid Laurier purposely determined not to go to Australia, so
that he might be present and take a
hand in the fray. The Ottawa correspondent of tbe Toronto Star writes
his paper as follows: "The opposition press throughout the country was
quite sure that the premier should go
to Australia. They brought Greek
gifts to him every lawful morning of
publication, saying he was the right
man to go, owin^ to hiB indisputable
eloquence, owing to the part lie played in the jubilee, but especially because he is premier of these confederated colonies. The press urged the
premier; the opposition looked friendly and weak to the point of foolishness���an opposition that noboby need
fear to expose one's back to. And yet
Sir Wilfrid did not go. There is one
reaBon for it, if not two. A certain
reason is the premier's inherent dislike for the long journey and the protracted ceremonials at the other end of
it. The second,or what may fairly be
guessed to be a supplementary reason,
is the coming up of the very important qneBtion as to whether the Crow's
Nest Coal company shall be allowed
to build a line of railway to haul its
coal across tbe boundary hue. This
is an important question. It is understood thut in regard to it members
of the cabinet arc not agreed, that
supporters of tho government arc divided, just as leaders of the opposition
arc not agreed and as their followers
are divided. It will not be a party
question, but its importance ta the
country is unquestioned. Tin; premier is no doubt anxious to see the
thing through. He is by long odds the
strongest personal influence in parliament, and everybody here knows it,
despite the election nonsense talked
about Mr. Tarte being "master of the
administration." The minister of
public works is a man of considerable
Influence owing to his great sagacity
aud many likeable qualities, the chief
of which is that he is a thorough-
bicd, and never says "die," but Sir
Wilfrid Laurier is und always bus
been master of this administration.
Here in Ottawa, on tlie spot, the election talk intended to create another
impression is considered amusing.
There will be a warm time over thut
railway bill, although those who advocate it are unublo to see how anybody
opposing it can face the conntry and
justify their course. These men ask
nothing but the right to go ahead nnd
do for themselves, at their own expense, what their interests require,
making uny bargain thut is deemed
necessary to ensure that the coal consumers of the Canadian West are not
injured. If their coal mines were so
situated that they bail water communication with tlie Ameiiean market
they need ask nobody's consent, but
could build boats ami curry ccal to
whoever might wish to purchase It.
No objection would be rinsed, nor oli-
���tuoles put in the way. If their mines
weie so near tho boundary that they
could build u chute und export the
coal iu that way thorn would not now
be a fight in prospect. Tlie company
today Is freo enough to curry coal
across tlie boundary in wugons or In
wheelbarrows, or to ship It by C. P, It.
to Vancouver and from there shower
it in unliimted quantities upon any
niurkiit In the world in which It can
find a footing. Looking at the case In
this practical way, It In seen that it is
purely a C. P. IL opposition that exists against the grnntlng of a charter
to a roud to carry ooal south in the
only cheap way known. There is also
to he leckoned on that essentially human tendency on tho part of some to
resist anything that will seem to
benefit Other persons."
Tho Ottawa Citizen advises euiitlon.
It says in the course of a long editorial dealing with the controversy:
"The   bcBt   rCinody la  caution In the
.outset. Our first duty Is to our own
great interests, -We Bhould not be
over-anxious to send out of the country an essential clement of u great
national Industry, and we arc of the
opinion that   the oonl   company   will
'find for many years yet a sufficient
field for its output in the vast   Canuil-
The dispute between the local rival
bands grows very interesting. At
present it would appear that the
liocky Mountain Rangers have a little
tbe best of the argument.
Western Canada has an easy time
with the effete East whenever it encounters the latter in tlie athletic field
���witness how the crack Winnipeg
hockey team whitewashed the boys
from Montreal.
Thousands of Boers are openly aiding the Hritish in driving off the
guerilla bands who are still fighting
Kruger's lost cause. Thus history is
repeating itself���the conquered taking
up arms in defence of the conquerors.
The Russian Rear is showing his
teeth and the Yellow Dragon flies to
other powers for assistance. It will
get it, of course; but it will be interesting to observe how much of the
dragon will be left when that "assist
ance" shall have been given.
Andrew Carnegie iB apparently dis
regarding the eight-hour law and
working overtime in making donations for public libraries. Ottawa is
the latest city to benefit by the great
Scotch philanthropist's generosity
If Nelson were not so modest	
A movement is on foot to abate the
mud nuisance on Ward stroet between
linker and Vernon. There seems
hardly any doubt but that those who
use that thoroughfare could get along
without difficulty with a lesser quantity than that which exists in that
locality at present.
The figures which are published
showing what money the Crow's NeBt
Coal company has been spending on
supplies and machinery are very interesting. It is quite apparent that Fernie huH as yet only witnessed the birth
of an industry which is certain to assume very large dimensions,
Mr. Hawtnorntliwiiite, the new lu-
bor member for Nanaimo city in the
provincial legislature, is rapidly
winning a name for hiinBelf us a very
vigorous debater. We think he dis.
played very bail taste, however, in ut
tacking Premier IhniMiiuir tlie way
he did in the house on Monday.
Tlie Chinese commission opens its
session in Victoria today. Is there
a man in tile province who hopes they
will accomplish anything towards
remedying the evil about which they
will deliberate. If there Is he should
have a guardian appointed nt once, to
prevent liiin from being run Over by
tin'street ears.
Persons who ride bicyles may con
siller it a hardship to be ordered oil'
the sidewalks, but they would not do
so if they properly appreciated the
dungers attending such practice. Let
them remember the futal accident
which occurred In Vancouver only a
few mouths ago, by which a young
lady lost her life through being run
down by a "scorcher."
The Seattle I'ost-Inlelllgcncer makes
the startling announcement that bubonic plnguc is raging In San Francisco. What cists doubt upon the
truth of this is tlie fact that nbsoliite-
ly nothing previously has   been lieurd
of it.   It  is  hardly   likely,   if   the
plague dlil oxiht, as alleged, In Sun
Francisco, thut the foot could bo kept
Bccrot for very long.
Tho Hosslainl Miner expresses the
opinion that everything points to
great uetlvlly In   mining development
In the Boundary country the coming
summer.   All who bave knowledge of
the Immensity of the mineral deposits
of thut district are quite certain that,
glvon adequate smelter and transportation facilities, there Is no portion of
the continent ol America wli'ch will
make greater strides iu progress and
prosperity.
Nelson has lost no time In getting
in line with the rest of the provincial
cities which have declared themselves
In opposition to the new School Hill
which has been Introduced by the
provincial government. It Is -difficult
to see how, in the face of such widespread disapproval of tile proposals,
the government can persist In its endeavors to secure its passage. We look
to  see   it amended in such a way   ns

FOOD AND WISDOM.
Brain Workers Learn the Secret.
Ambitious students who study hard
and try their best to gain an education, frequently give down under the
pressure and are greatly disappointed
when they find they cannot carry out
the cherished desire of their life.
This result is nearly always caused
by the lack of the right kind of food
to make up the waste caused by excessive brain work.
The average student does not know
how to select the right kind of food,
but a food expert has been at work
and has produced a food especially intended to nourish and rebuild the brain
and the nerve centers throughout the
body. This food is known as Grape-
Nuts.
A Student, Rosa Scott, of Kenoma,
Mo., says, "I was very ambitious to
succeed at Bchool, and started under
favorable circumstances with good
health and used what is generally supposed to be good substantial articles of
food, such as meat, vegetables, etc
I worked hard and soon became trou
bled with distress in my stomach. I
noticed a confusion of thought and
inability to memorize. I found it almost impossible to study in the condition I was in, and resorted to medicine, but that did not relieve me of
my suffering, and I seemed to grow
worse. I was in despair until one day
a friend, who had passed through u
similar experience, told uie to stop
using medicine, and In place of ordinary food use Grape-Nuts Food. He
said it contained certain elements necessary to rebuild the worn out tissues
of both body and brain, and positively assured me that if I woulil use tlie
food, I would get well and he able to
go on with my work.
It seemed too good to be true, and
I at once began the use of Grape-Nuts
Food, with an egg for breakfast.
For the midday meal I used four heaping teaspoonfuls with some cream or
milk and nothing else. Then for the
evening meal I used Grape-Nuts and
fruit. RiRht from the beginning,
my sufferings were not so great, and
gradually my strength returned, and
I could see that my brain was regaining its former activity.
The favorable symptoms continued
until 1 was entirely relieved from my
trouble and am now stionger than I
ever was before. Can study ten or
twelve hourB a day with results tbat I
feel arc a credit to myself.
I would like to have Btudcnts all
over the world know of the powerful
properties contained in Grape-Nuts
Food as compared with any ordinary
diet." This sort of experience teaches
plainly the fact that there is everything'in the selection of food if one
desires to work hard and make a success in tins world. There is probably
no food known that Is as perfect for
tbe rebuilding of tbe body and brain
��s tlrape-Nute.
ABOUT WIDE TIRES���
Alderman John Hamilton has advanced ideas of road building and it
is probable that one or more of tbe
features be advocates will be embodied in a by-law to be adopted later in
the year. One of the measures whicli
Alderman Hamilton favors is that of
compulsory wide tires for wagons
over a certain weight. He maintains
that this will prevent to a large extent the cutting up of the roads by
which the latter suffer at the present
time. The weight of the argument
cannot be denied, and in many
places local legislation along this
line is now enforced.
If you don't like Bins Ribbon Tea it's
because you've never tasted it.

MADAME ALI1AN1���
Amongst the many incidents which
took place in connection with the
deatli of Queen Victoria was the singing of Madame Albani, (who will fill
an engagement in Neleon next
month), in the Albert Memorial chap
el at VViudsor on Sunday February 3.
The King, recognizing the fact that
Madame Albani bad been for so long
much liked by the late Queen and had
sung to her so many times, graciously
commanded her to sing in the chapel
whe>c the mortal remains of her late
Majesty rested previous 1o their removal to Frogmore the following day.
Tbe rcene during the ceremony was
most impressive and one never to be
forgotten. In the beautiful chapel
erected by Cardinal Wolseiey and embellished by tlie Queen in memory
of Prince Consort rested the royal
coffin in front of tlie altar. Ileie upon il purple bier covered witli satin
pall and the Royal Standard lay the
body of the  first    lady   In    the   land.
Magnificent Horn] treasures lay around
completely lining every available space
in the chapel, while above all splendid palms arched. The only persons
present were the King, tbe Queen, the
German emperor and all the members
of the royal family. Madame Albani,
accoinpnuied by Sir Walter 1'Brratt,
sang. "C.imo Unto Him," and "I
Know That My Redeemer Livetli"
with most solemn effect and she touched all hearts. The King personally
thanked Madame Albani when she
had finished for what she bad done.
