The new briquetting plant oi the
Granby smelter is working satisfactorily. Briquettes are being made
without any lime save what is in the
Hue dust. They arc so hard that they
are sent direct to the fnrc ace. Ordi-
uarily they would have to be mixed
witb from 3 to 5 per cent, of slaei:
lime and then dried for 24 hours
before being dumped into the furnace.
The advantage enjoyed by tbe Granby
ores is the largo quantity of lime they
contain.

Statesman and the Genera!
Hold Acrimonious Correspondence.
Former Says Omissions In
Dispatches  Were  Made
for Latter's Sake.
London, March 25.���An acrimonious
correspondence between A.y. Balfour
and Gen. Buller bas been published.
Mr. Balfour contends that General
Uuller was in chief command at the
battle of Spion Kop, while General
Buller denies this assertion. To his
contention Mr. Balfour says: "There
is no reason why all the Spion Kop
despatches should not be publisbod."
To this General Buller rejoins that
he hopes the despatches will be published, without manipulation.
Yesterday Mr. Balfour replied to
Geneial Uuller and protested against
'he latter's insinuation and declared
that the only manipulation which had
been exercised r.ith regard to General
Buller's despatches was tho excision
of a single sentence, criticising Sir
Charles Warren, whilst the omissions
from Lord Hoberts' despatches, relating to operations ln Natal,wero made,
said Mr. Balfour, "Sololy for tbe purpose of, if possible, sparing your feelings and maintaining yoJr military
reputation."
IUISU LAND BILL.
Nationalists     Do   Not     Seem   to  Bo
Enthusiastic Over it.
London, March 25.���The chief secretary for Ireland, George F. Wyndham,
introduced the Irish land bill today
in tbe house of commons. The main
provision of the bill authorizes the
land commission to take over the
whole, or any part, of an estate,
whoso owner is willing to sell. Tbe
commission will then resell it to the
Unants. The assent of three-quarters
of the number of tenants is necessary
to purchase the land before the commission will undertake to transfer
any part of an estate. The Irish
membors evinced little enthusiasm
over the bill.
John Redmond, the Nationalist
leader in the house, said he purposed
to reserve his judgment until he had
studied the provisions of the bill
carefully. He warned the government
that universal compulsory purchase
must be the ultimate solution of thc
problem, as nothing else would be
���icceptable.
Timothy Healy (Nationalist) said
he believed that bill would do something towards settling tho question,
but that much depended upon the constitution of the new estates and the
commission.
CUBA'S NATAL DAY.
It is to Be Made an Independent
Republic on May 20.
Washington, March 25.���This after-
coon Secretary Root made public Ins
ordei to Generul Wood by wiring him
to turn the control and government of
Cuba to its people on May 20 next.
The order requires tlie Cuban government to assume all treaty obligations.
It directs General Wood to leave a
small artillery force on the island to
avoid leaving it entirely Defenceless
until the Cuban government shall
have had an opportunity to organize
its own forces. Gen. Wood is instructed to instruct the Cuban congress
before May 20 to consult with President-elect Pulma and to substitute
such persons as be shall desire for
those now holding offioial positions
in Cuba.
The Cuban question occupied nearly
the entire time of tho cabinet meeting
today, tbo details of the transfer of
the islands to the new government
being considered at groat length. It
iB the desire of the administration to
provide as fully as possible for the
absolute and complete turning over of
tho government as soon as the Cuban
flag is raised. There was only a passing reference to the rei'ODt Miles incident and a disposition was manifested
to ignore the case for tho present.
AN INSULTING CARTOON.

Piince's Visit.
Berlin, March 25.���Simplicissimus,

often been confiscated by the police,

Chinese Exclusion hill and by a practically unanimous vote ordered that it

A WISE TARIFF POLICY.
The Toronto Telegram complains
that protection has never had a fair
chance in Canada, and it declares that
even Us great apostle, Sir John A.
Macdonald, was lacking either in the
oourage or wisdom to fully utilize the
principle foi the upbuilding of the
country. Canada has been nominally
under protection for nearly 25 years
and in that time the^country has built
thousands of miles of railway at the
public expense. Continuing the Tele
gram says: "A polioy wbioh docs not
develop the iron industry of the
country by making its own rails is a
poor half hearted apology for genuine
protection. Canada is not developed
as the country would have|been developed if her conservative leaders had
been inspired by tho wisdom and
courage of their professed   principle."
While it is probobly true that Canada with her immense iron and coal
deposits could long since have em-
barkea profitably in the making of pig
iron, steel and rails for her railways
It was not until recently that the
home market was a large one, and ono
of the first essentials for success in
any manufacturing enterprise is a
good sized home market. Under the
Liberal administration the Dominion
Iron aud Steel Works has been making rails for several years and is
finding a roady market for its output
at home. At Sault Ste Marie, Mr.
Clergue und associates have established large iron and steel plants and
will Boon be turning out rails. At
Kitchener, a few miles southeast of
this city, another large iron and steel
enterprise is being pushed and the
outlook is that before a groat while
it will be turning out iron and steel
and further on rails. There are one or
two iron and stool enterprises in process of formation at the coast, which,
if they materialize, will in due course
of time be turning Canadian iron
ore into rails for Canadian railways.
While it may bo true that the policy
ol the Conservatives wus half hearted,
as the Telegram suggests, thore has
been nothing weak about the Liberal
polioy in regard to the protection of
industries which have load to making
rails. The enterprises above refeired
to snow that the parties embarking in
tbem havo firfUi in the policy of the
governmont nnd know that their output will be protected,by a duty sufficiently large to insure 'heir salo at a
profit iu the homo markets. It was
probably the half heartednoss of the
Conservatives, which tho Telegram
admits, as much as anything else,that
caused them to lose the reins of government. The Liberal tariff policy Is
a wise and boneflciul one and is building up the country.
SCHOOL OP MINKS.
Now thnt tho legislature is in session an ofTnrt should be made to
secuie the school of mines for Nelson.
Rossland had the sell nil fir three
winters nnd during Inst winter allowed ft to lapse through indifference on
tbe part of tho citizens. The school
coulo have been kept in motion thero
had the citizens been willing to defray
a part of the cost of running it, but
they allowed it to lapse because the
city's affairs wero in �� depressed condition owing to the strike. Anyway,
be people of Rossland allowed the
school to lapse for one winter and it
should be no* given to some city
which would taks enough interest in it
to make it a constantly going concern.
Nelson should now tako np the school
and we believe would make more of
a success of it than Rossland has. The
mining school is an important institution, inasmuch as it can be mado the
means of giving thoso who cannot afford, or have not had the opportunity of taking a scientific mining
course, a ohanne to learn the rudiments,   at   least, of   geology, miner
alogy, etc., so that they will make
better miners and prospectors than if
they did not attend tbe lectures and
demonstrations of the school. Nelson,
by reason of her geographical location
and mild winter ia more of a rendezvous for mining men, prospectors and
others during the winter months than
any othor town in the Kootenays, who
would take advantage of the school of
mines. Besides, we believe it has a
larger proportion of families with
growing children than Rossland.
Many of Nelson's boys could, with
advantage, attond tlie mining school,
and we believe that they would do so
were it established here. Naturally,
as mining is the chief industry of this
section, they take a deep interest in it
and would welcome an opportunity to
study so as to gain at least a elementary knowledge of it under proper
guidance.
The school, if prcpeny fostered,
should grow in time to a large institution. Some of the best mining
schools in Germany are located in
centres where mining is carried on,
and the students are thus given the
opportunity to acquire both a scientific and practical knowledge. Nelson
has mines near enough to its limits
to offer like advantages to the German
towns. The people of Nelson should
make an effort while the legislature is
in session to necure the school of
mines for next winter. The board of
trade could take up the matter and
with a little energy and the help of
the Nelson representative in the legislature, the secorng of tho school
should not be a very diftioult task.
ROOM FOR FRAUD.
Now that the redistribution bill has
been brought down by the government, accompanying it there should
be a measure adopted hy which the
voters' lists could be put in better
shape than they are. At present there
are opportunities for fraud, which
makes it essential that the present
lists be cancelled and that registrations be safeguarded to prevent tbe
possibility of fraudulent voting.
Under the present system it ia possible for many fraudulent names to be
on tbe register and for them to be
voted, although they do not legally
belong there.
Among the reasons for reform are
the following: (1) Names were
registered unaccompanied by affidavit); (2) tbe lists are tbree general
elections or more old, and perhaps
one-third of the names represent
those who are absent. It is possible
for those who desire to do so to vote
the names of the absentees; (8) anyone could register fictitious and
illegal names by simply filling out
blanks and mailing them to tbe
collector.
As a remedy for this the following
is suggested: (1) New lists to be
made only on affidavits as to faots
made befoie some official competent to
administer oaths Those admitted to
reigstration to be compelled to give
residence and occupation foi identification purposes; (2) allow voters only
to voto in the polling divisions where
they are registered; (3) provide for
separate wards in towns and cities,
and for precincts in districts outside
of towns and cities.
With these safeguards opportunities
for frauds against the ballot box
would be reduced to the minimum
and would be a great improvement,
we think, over the present loose
method of registration of voters. The
matter should be taken up hy the
present legislature and passed contemporaneously with the redistribution
bill, which is now pending in the
house.

Here is the condensed logic submitted by the Editoi and Publisher to
the fellows who don't know whether
advertising pays or not: "The only
purpose mon have in advertising in
the newspapers is to secure business.
They will not advertise if it doeB not
pay to do so. Hence the fact that the

A Fronchr count, de Saint Ouen.
has left $2,000,000 to b6 used to raise
a race of giants. People of large size
are to be induced to marry by a
$20,000 dowry for one such marriage
eaoh year. Frederick the Grout, it
will be remembered, was very fond of
giants and formed a reigment of
guards whieh he assembled oy securing the eivilued world for them, and
he gave special inducements in order
that they might enlist in his giant
corps. If giants had intelleots in
pioportion to their size they would he
tbe rulers of the world, but it is more
often the case that the largest of men
have not the brightest of minds. Men
of medium size are usually the
brightest. Just what Count do Saint

I     MINING NEWS,     |
$*************************
At the record office yestnlay eertili-
cates of work wero issued to J. H.
Wallace on the Lochaoer, Lizzie and
Ella mineral claims. Neil McDonald
recorded the location of the Lucky
Stone oo Evening mountain.
Captain Uifford, manager of the
Silver King mine, reports that a few
men have recently been discharged
pending the result of the diamond
drill explorations in the lower levels.
Th 1 mine is in good condition and is
now constantly shipping 50 tons ofore
por day and tbe shipments have been
kept up steadily since Decomber last.
The oro bins are full and everything is
moving along in a satisfactory
manner.
Dr. E. C. Arthur, who bas just
returned from a visit to the east, reports that the newly reconstructed
Athabasca Co.expects to resume operations on a largo scale by the end of
June or the 1st cf July. lt is now
conceded that in tho Venus property
the new company has ore reserves
sufficient to jun the ten-stamp mill
to its fullest capacity and to provide
sufficient funds for tbe development of
the Athabasca claim.
Good news comes from the Rambler"
Cariboo, in the Slocan, as it is announced that tho big ore body had
been met iu two places on the 000-feet
level. The large and very rich shoot
of ore, it is claimed, it has been dem -
onstrated, extends down to the depth
of 600 feet. The ledge has been crosscut and is from three to three and a
half feet wide, and runs 200 ounces in
silver to tho ton. The shaft, which is
being sunk, ran out of the ledge
between the MO and 600-l'oot levels.
When the 000-foot level was reached
a drift was run to tho north and
south. The crosscut to tho north
struck the ledge several days since
and on Monday tbe ledge was struck
in the south crosscut. The strike is
an important one, as it demonstrates
that the ore body is strong at depth.

Word bas been received from Cranbrook tbat the East Kootenay team
that is coming here on Easter Monday
is an exceptionally strong oro and is
doing some good hard practicing in
anticipation of the game. Tbo local
team will be well up to the standard
that has been able to bold its own in
the nast, and if they have the benefit
of a good practice on Friday should at
least be able to make a close game of
it. The practice on Friday starts at
4 o'clock and everyone who can is
particularly requested to turn out as
the team will be finally picked after
the game.

EASTER BONNETS
MANY   GORGEOUS   CONFECTIONS

LINE? SHOPS.
Said to |.Fabulously Rich in Ooarse Oold.
Prospecting for gold makes husky
men even if tbey don't always find
tbe gol A. Sometimes theso men can
tell interesting tales.
Joseph Morehead whose headquarters are in Elgin, Ore. writes, " Last
Fall I came down here, attracted by
the rich strikes in the Baker City
fields. On my arrival I heard a 'fairy
story' of a 'lost lake' in the Rlue
Mountains whiah was said to be
fabulously rioh in coarse gold. The
story bad all the 'ear marks' of the
'lo^t mine' and 'lost cabin' stories to
be heard in evory mining district;
prospector driven out by Indians,
brought pocket full of nuggets with
him, died and left the customary
rough sketch of the locality, etc., eto
I determined to have a look for it,
and as the formation is volcanic it is
too rough for pack animals. The
problem was how to cany food
enough, in addition to my pick, pan
and blanket, for a two weekB' sojourn
in the mountains.
I had, a short time before, been
prospecting with an old mouutaiueer
in the Hitter Root lange in Montana.
He was au enthusiast on the subject
of Grape-Nuts and Postum Coffee. Iu
fact he lived on them. I used to
'josh' him about his'gru ' but soon
grew to like it myself and finally got
to eating Grapa-Nuts three times a
day and as much uftenor as I gol the
chance.
So with my former expeiience in
mind I got five packages of Grape-
Nuts and Bome packages of Postum
Coffee which, with a litlte sugar and
Bait, were all the supplies I took with
me, and for nine days' laborious
climbing over the roughest country
out of doors I had nothlnir else except
an occasional trout caught from the
stream. I came back feeling first class
and am offeing to bet that I can average thirty miles a day over mountain
trails with thirty pounds of blankots,
etc., ou nothing but Grape-Nuts, "
This food can be digested and will

sustains and works wonders witli tho
hardest physical and mental workers,
including football and baseball players, athletes of all kinds, doctors,
ministers, lawyers, business men and
Other brain workers.
SOMBER BLACK IS TBE PREDOMINATING COLOR THIS
SEASON.
The origin of tbe Easter bonnet is
lost in the mists of history but it is
certainly an object that at the present
season of the year occopies the
thoughts of womankind generally to a
very large extent. Although it is
only a few jears since tbe flrst millinery department was put in at Nelson
vet already the display of ladies' head
gear nt the semi-annual openings are
looked forward to with eager interest
not only by the ladies of tho city but
also by those of all the surrounding
towns. The displays this year are very
handsome and re licit much credit on
the skill of those responsible for tlieir
creation.
At Kerr and Co.'s Miss T. McGrory,
the bead milliner, showed a Miner
reporter some most beautiful creations,
Blask is the predominating color this
year, caused princ'pally by the early
date ^that Easter falis on. Of the
other colors beige and different brown
shades probably lead. An Anna Held
style was shown whioh was a large
picture hat of black horsehair braid
and meline, trimmed low on the hair
at the back and flare in at tbe left
side. The ornaments were black beads
and cabacbons. Anothci handsome
hat was a French toque in pale green
and blue, with rose crown and pearl
ornaments. The window Ot the
new premises occupied by the millinery department is beautifully draped
with purple and white.
Mrs. Enfield has also a very handsome showing of hats. The most expensive one shown is a dress hat witb
a turban effect, French roues, sequin
crown and trimmed with black lace
nnd drooping streamers. Another
striking bat is a handsome black
Gainsborough w ith white plume,
cabochons and pearl beads. Mrs.
Enfield stated that the back part of
the bat seemed tc be the most important this season.
At Fred Irvine and Co s' a large
number of ladles were Bbsembled all
day yesterday admiring the large
variety of hats. Miss Darvuau showed
the reporter two of ber principal hats.
One was a hat of Nacre chip straws,
crown of heavy Arab lace. A cascade
of Coquelicot satin and velvet ribbon
between two wreaths of foliage and
cherries held in place by two cut steel
and pearl cabochons, the colors being
nacre and Coquelicot. The other was
a toque with facing of circles of crinoline braid, the crown also being made
in like manner. The draping is made
of tucked ohiffon through which is
ruu veiy narrow straw biaid. Cockade
of brush osprey in rossette of taffeta
Mousseline iibbon, and gold bar set
with pearls.
Besides the brown shades there are
some very pretty designs shown at all
of tbo stores in baby blues and greens.
The styleB as a rule this year are net
anything like as bright as is usually
tho case, but are uot any the less
pretty on tbis account.

for boating.
At the police court yesterday morn-
ng Bowell and Scranton, tbe two

Beeton and Co., were brought up for
trial. It was the first appearance of
the former in court and as be manfully took his share of blame be was
released on suspended sentence, his
employer going surety for bid
future good behaivour. Scranton, the
elder of the two, who had been the
principal in the affair, had a bad
record and had been up a short time
before for drunkenness. The magistrate sentenced him to six months'
imprisuninent.
There was considerable discussion
around town yesterday on tbe best
means of placing some safeguards on
the city wharf to prevent any further
loss of horses there and also loss of
human lift, which might occurr at
any time. The great difficulty ol
placing a railing or chain that would
be of any use lies in the high water
experienced at the busiest time of lhe
year, when tbe wharl is covered at
the lower end by many feet of water,
the steamers coming right ovar it. The
steamers also are compelled to change
their landing places to suit the varying stages of the water and a permanent rail would not answer, while for
the guard rail or chain to be of the
slightest use it would have to be
strong. Probably the only satisfactory
solution of the difficulty will be to
widen the wharf and place foot paths
raised at either side. This, however,
Is not likely to be done for some time
��� to come yet.

A Coffee Slave
Plenty of Them All About
"To my stispiiso I discovered Unit
the coffee habit wns fixed upon me, and
I looked forward to the beverage at
meals ns indispensable.
"I felt that I would rather do without lhe balance of the meal than thc
ooffee. and became impressed with the
fact that my free, independent iniiii-
homl wns practically gone,
"My heart gradually became weaker
nnd winker until it was so crippled that
my feet nud bands were nlwujs cold,
except immediately after di irking coffee; snd
after the effeot of the
coffee wore oil, I hnd
thut horrible, relaxed,
wrimg-out liken dish-
rng feeling thut made
feel like an old, decrepit
man nt the age of thirty
five.
"When I awakened t<>
my oondition I quit coffee niid took up Posluin
.Cereal Food Coffee,
"finding it a most pala-
tablo nnd perfect beverage My heart had reoovered its normal strength,
and I am again a young and henlthy man. It is very plain to me now t-at
coffee was robbing me of my strength and vigor. Postum helped me quit
and built up my nervous system.
"My wife, also, hss been wonderfully bonefitod by the use of I'ostum
Food Ooffee, and wc have been engaged in an active crusade in its behalf.
Have found many peoi le who bad turned down Postum solely on account of
not making it propei 1 . It is easy to make if ono will use four heaping
teaspoons to the pint 01 water and allow it to boil long enough, We always
use good, rich cream, uml sweeten thecup to taste It is a delicious
beverage.
"The following persons wero affected very muoh as I was, and have recovered thoir health by the use of Postum Food Coffee: Dr. J. A. Schuelke,
of the United States army, also Mr. John Corcoran, of South Omaha, with

of this city are as substantially represented as possible. The Trades and

quota of delegates and it is expected
that many other unions will shortly

Charles Hillyer, of the Nelson Planing mill, is back lrom a visit to the
coast, whither he went for the purpose of bidding on some additions to
the Banff hotel and other work. In
tho several towns between Nelson and
the coast and in the coast cities he
reports tbat all are in a buoyant condition and have an air of prosperity.
The residents of these places declare
that business is good and they anticipate even livelier conditions during
the coming summer and fall. Mr
Hillyer says if the few who go about
croaking about hard times in Nelson
would cease to do so that it wonld be
of material benefit, as in some way
or other the impression has got abroad
that this city is in a bad condition.
When told that this was the case
while on his journey he told his informants that Nelson was in good cor-
dition and that the outlook for a
good year heie was most promising.
