REFERENDUM
tho Hudson's Bay Co.,   was   destroyed
by fire today.    The loss is heavy.
prohibition Bill   Brought In
but Government Not
Committed.
Newspapers Will Ask  Further Reduction on Paper
Duty.
Toion'.o, Feb.' 12.���The Canadian
Press association is not satisfied with
the reductions made by the government on the duty ou paper in that it
dues not give relief to small purchasers. The restriction of the reduced
duty to paper costing not more than
2 1-4 cents per pound does not give
them much relkf. Tbe government
will bo asked to reduce the duty
further.
The lioprd of Trade today passed a
resolution that if Great Britain should
place a tax on similar products tc
those produced in Cauada, preference
should be given to products grown
within the empire. The resolution
will be forwarded to the premier for
transmission to Hon. Joseph Chamberlain before tbe British budget is
brought down.
I'romicr     Ross   brought   down   the
prohibition bill in tbe legislature tbis
afternoon.    It proved to be along   the
cxpoeted lines.   In introducing it Mr.
lloss reviewed   tho   progress  made in
temperanoe  in  Ontario  and promised
that if ti_ bill were sustained  by the
electoiate of the province in  a way to
indicate   that sufficient strength was
assured to enforce it, the act would be
unforced.    The  act   to  be enacted is
that passed by tho   Manitoba   legislature.     It   would   he   referred   to the
electorate  after   being carefully considered, clause by clause. If suilicie.nl
stiength were indicated as being   behind it, it  would   then be   enforced,
lie  defeuued tbo referendum and said
Bourinot   had   assured   him   it was a
perfectly constitutional course.    Most
of   his  speech   was an   argument  in
favor of the  constitutionality   of  tbe
referendum rather than an elucidation
of the bill or a committal statement regarding the advisability of enacting a
piohibitory law.   As to  the  majority
necessary to secure success,   Mr.   Ross
was non committal.      Some  states  of
tbe American union, he said,   require
only   a   majority, others  demanded a
two-thirds    majority.       He    quoted
opinions of prominent men who believed    there   should    be   a    substantal
majority befoie a prohibition measure
could  be properly   enlorced  after  its
submission to tbe people.

Pekin, Fob. 12.���The news of the
signing of tbe An lo-Japanete treaty
of alliance became known to a few
diplomats here today and was an
absolute surprise. The treaty is re
girded al the most important move
made in far eastern politics io recent
years. The Japanese minster visited
Prince Ching, president of the Foreign
office, and gave him a copy of tbe
treaty. It is not doubted among tho
| diplomats here that the new alliance
will effectually veto the signing of
the Manchurian treaty.
The British minister, Sir Ernest
M. Satow; tho Japanese minister,
Uchida, and tbe United States minister, Mr. Conger, have recently been
pressing Prince Ching to postpone
signing the Manchurian treaty and
obtained a promise to defer so doing
until fresh representations could be
made, whicb representations were
made today in the form of a copy of
tha Anglo-Japanese treaty. Tbe
Chinese officials who were informed
ot the signing of the treaty expressed
the greatest satisfaction. They said

ASK ANNEXATION.
OPINION IN FRANCE.
KENTUCKY FEUD.
Deputies Tiy to Make an Arrest and a
Pitcned Battle Follows.
Middlesboro, Ky., Feb. 12.���Six are
dead and as many more are   dying   as
the result of a battle between Mlddles-
boroughers   aud mountaineers  which
ooourred   this   afternoon  at Lee Turner's   saloon,   threo   and.a half miles
from Middlesboro. Last month Turner
had   some   mules   and    other   gooas
levied on, in payment for a  debt, and
a few nights  ago, it is  said, he with
others went  to   Vinguia,   where  the
property   bad   been   taken,   securing
what waB formerly  his  and  returned
to his home.     Today Deputy William
Thompson   summoned a posse of 10 or
IS men for the   purpose   of  arresting
Turner.     Railway transportation was
refused tho officers and they   footed it
through the mountains.     Turner  had
heard that an attempt  would be made
to arrest him and be and his men,    15
in number, were prepared.    The saloon
is   built   of   buge   logs   and   is surrounded   by a   30-foot fence in   which
loop  holes   were  cut.   Turner's surrender was demanded.
His  reply   was  a round  of   shots.
Charley C. Cecil, of Middelsboro,   was
riding   a   horse   in plain view of  the
Turner   gang.   Someore,  believed   to
have been Mike Welsh, Turner's  bartender, fired through a widow, killing
Cooil  instantly.     The   murderer   fell
baok pierced by a half dozen   bullet*.
The officers scattered,   hiding   bebind
trees and rocks.   In the shooting that
followed, John Doyle,   a   former railway man,was badly wounded, perhaps
fatally and Simon Bean,   another   ex-
railroader,    was   shot.     A   torch was
applied   to   an   exposed   side  of  tbe
building   and   in   a few minntes  tbe
building   was   ic   dames.   Sevoral ot
the mountaineers camo to the window
and were immediately shot down. Lee
Turner  and   several   of   his  friends,
however, escaped.   Several of his men
perished in the flames.   Many ruaiors
are reported tonight,   one   being  that
five of the Turner   gang   were  killed
and  that   five   more   perished   in the
flames.
lt is believed that the deputies lost
several men. Some of tho deputies
came in tonight and state that half of
the men are still at the saloon and
that they will return with reinforcements. Turner, it is said, graduated
from a college at Roaeball, Va.
How French Newspapers Look Upon
British-Japanese Alliance.
Paris, Feb. 12.���The view taken in
diplomatic circles bere is that tbe
Anglo-Japanese alliance, boing purely
defensive, ls a no wise Disquieting
element in Ihe eastern situation. The
agreement.it Is here claimed, excludes
Manchuria, and Russia, therefoie, is
not menaced thereby. The alliance is
taken to indicate that Great Britain
has abandoned ber opportunist and
vacillation attitude of recent years in
the far east for a fixed policy and that
the result will certaiuly make for the
peace ot tbe world.
The question of Cores, provided in
the first article, oannot load to a disturbance of peace. Japan also is not
in an aggressive mood. One of the
flrst results of the alliance will probably be a new Japanese loan as Japan
has need of money.
The Temps says: The new alliance
seems to indicate that the British government intends inaugurating a new
policy in the far east. It is an innovation without precedent for a century. England thereby changes he
polioy of "free hands'' for a policy of
"tied hands." There is, perhaps, a
direct relation between this and the
sort of diplomatic revolution and
change of situation regarding Wei
Hai Wei.
The Journal des Debate remarks:
We think Enlgand gets tbe best of
the bargain. She merely assumes theoretical obligations toward Japan,
whereas the latter's obligations
toward England take a much more
practical character. It does not seem
as if Japan bas much reason to congratulate ncrself on the treaty, wbile
tbe other powers cannot remain indifferent to an alliance which will
leave England much less accommodating in the far east.
The Franeais says: The moBt important result will be to give England
greater lreedom in the remainder of
the world.
Berlin, Feb. 12.���The official Reich-
anzlger this evening published the following: ln order to clear up definitely
the question, so far as it affects Ger.
many, in regard to the attitude of the
powers in the spring of 1898 relative
to tho idea of Intervention in thc
Spanish-American conflict, we publish the two documents which follow:
The flrst is dated Berlin, April 15th,
1898, and is addressed to the Emperor
by Count Von Buelow, then scoretary
of state. Count Von Buelow transmits
to the Emperor a telegram from Dr.
Von Holleben, dated Washington, as
follows:
The   llritish ambassador today took
tho  initiative   in   a eery  remarkable
manner, in a new   collective   step  of
the representatives of the great powers
here.     We suppose the  Queen Regent
made representations to   tbe   Queen of
England.     in     this   sense,    the   six
representative?,    at the request of   the
llritish   ambnssador,   telegraphing   to
tbe governments in   the   sense   which
follows:    In   view ofthe  attitude of
Congress  no   nope   of peace cau   any
lenger be entertained and the   general
opinion is, that tbe powers also would
have no objection   to   war.     A   good
basis   for fresh negotiations   appeared
to have beon afforded by tbo   Spanish
minister on April 10th.     If this  view
is shared by the governments, it seems
advisable    to   dispel   the    erroneous
notion bere that armed intervention in
Cuba meets witb   the   support   ot   the
civilized world.    The president in the
message of December said iB was only
iu that case that he desirod   intervention.       Thc   representatives   of    the
powers   hero   think, in these circumstances, that tbe great   powers  might
direct  the  attention of the  Amerioan
government   to   the   Spanish   note of
April 10th, and might declare that ini
torvention   did not appear to   them to
be justified.     Tbis   declaration might
take tbe form of a collectivo note from
the powers to the representative of the
United   States.       Such   a    document
would   produce   a greater   impression
and the representatives of  the powers
here would not then incur the riBk of
appearing   only   to repeat  their  first
step, which the president in his latest
message has not eveu deigned to mention.     In   the   event   of an identical
note being decided upon it   would  be
advisable to publish it immediately in
order   tbat    the   civilized   world    to
whose authority tho   appeal   is made,
may   be   absolved   from   reproach  in
approving of this attack."
Dr. Von Holden adds: "Personally
I regard this demonstration somewhat
coldly," and to this concluding sonj
tence of the ambassador, the enipero-
appended the following note: "I regard it as completely futile and purr
poseless and therefore prejudice!. I
am against this step."

Representations of the Federal Philippine Party to Washington.
Washington, Fob. 12.���Tho memorial of the federal party of the Philippine islands was transmitted to the
Bonate this afternoon by the Secretary
of War, together with a letter of
transmittal by Governor Taft in whose
charge the document was given. It
waB adopted at an extraordinary session of the federal party held in
November.
The memorial proper is divided into
two parts. The first of theso is a
petition for annexation and a representation of tho form of government
desired. Philippine independence
with or without a protectorate means
a holding of power by all tho terrible
elements of sects which predominate,
and would predominate still lor some
years until the anger of tho Filipinos
toward Filipinos shall have been completely calmed, education become
general and the fanaticism wc have
inherited from Spain exiled. Federation or annexation would settle all
these difficulties by concentrating the
interest of the Filipino people upon
education and labor.
A preliminary form of government,
similar to that of the territories of tbe
United States, is outlined as suitable
for the Philippines. The plan provides
for a governor and four executive
secretaries to he appointed hy the
president of the United States and for
a territorial senate in addition to a
house of representatives, consisting of
30 members, 1G of whom are to be
elected by the people and the others
appointed by the governor. The memorial asks tbat the islands bu represented ln the United States house of
representatives by two delegates.
In this subdivision the federal
party sets lorth that it has made an
exhaustive study of both the Filipino:,
und tho Americans and concludes that
from the mass of data collected it is
the "intention of the two peoples tbat
they should never bo disunited."
Tne memorial announces as principles
for this union the formation of a
"more perfect union, establishment of
iustice, tbe insurance cf domestric
tranquility, promotion ot tt)o general
welfare and the secuiing ot the blessing of liberty."
Tbe ruomorial then proceeds: "To
make of the Philippines a colony of
the United States,or to grant independence to the Philippines, would be to
hand the Philippines to disorder and
to anarchy, to destruction and to
choas. In effect, the colonial s) stein
involves tbe principles of difference of
citizenship, inequality of rights and
other consequent abuses and injustices
of all of which we Filipinos were
surteited under tho Spanish government, and for this reason we reject
everything which tends toward a
colony."

fight. To our summons to snrrendei,
which was accompanied by a blank
eannon shot, the Crespo replied by
firing on us, to which the Libertador
answered by directing the fire of ber
heavy guns and rapid firing guns on
the Crespo. The latter kept up firing
for a time, but ber shells did not
strike us, while our shells inflicted
sciious damage to her. After half an
hour's fighting tbe Crespo surrendered

VICTJRY.FOR TOE PEOPLE.
The Dominion government has
declared that a combine exists among
tho paper manufacturers of Canada
and has reduced thc import duty on
paper from 25 to 15 per cent, ad
valorem. Early last year the price of
paper used by newspapers was suddenly advanced so that none waB sold
for less than 82.50 per 100-pounds in
carload lots, whereas formorly the
price ranged from $2.10 1-2 to $2.25
per 100 pounds and in one ca��e a
paper paid only $1.87 1.2 por 100
pounds. The cost for less tban carload lots waB put up to not less
than $3 per 100 poinds. The
owners of newspupers protested
against the advance claiming that a
combination existed to raise prices,
and appealed to the government,
basing the appeal on section 18, chapter 10, of the am to consolidate and
amend the acts respecting the duties
of customs.
This provides "Whenever the Gover-
nor-in-Council has reason to believe
fjiat with regard to any article of
commerco there exists any trust, combination, association or agreement of
any kind among manufacturers of
such article or dealers therein, to
unduly enhance the price ot sucb
article or in any other way to unduly
promote the advantage of the manufacturers or dealers at the expense of
consumers, the Governor-in-Council
may commission or empower any
judge of the Supreme court or
Exchequer court of Canada, or of any
superior court In any province of
Canada, to inquire in a summary way
into and report to the Governor-in-
Council, whether such trust, combination, association or agreement exists.
If tbe judge reports that such a trust,
combination, association or agieoment
exists and if It appears to tbe
Governor-in.Council tbat such disadvantage to tho consumer is facilitated
by the duties of customs imposed on
a like aiticle, when imported, then
tbe Governor-in-Council shall place
such article on the free list, or so reduce the duty as to give to the public
tho benefit of reasonable competition
in such article."
The government appointed Judge
Tascherau to investigate the complaint
and he spent several months in making a most exhaustive inquiry. He
interviewed the Cunadian manufacturers and consumers, inspected the
mills and found that the cost of
manufacturing paper in Canada was
only a shade higher than It was in the
United States. He went to New York
and heaid the testimony of manufacturer'', both in and outside of tbe paper
combine. The result of his investigation leads to the conclusion that tne
contention of the newspaper proprietors vas right and that a combination did exist among the manufacturers a..(1 dealers Iu paper in Canada
to keep the price at higher figures
than the conditions justiried. The re-
psirt was recently submitted to tbe
government and yesterday the dispatches announced tbat the duty on
pai or had been lowered from 25 per

This is a notible victory for the
newspapers, should result in the high
price being taken off paper, which
should fall to the figures which prevailed before the com blue to raise
prices was formed. It is creditable,
too, to the government as it reveals an
unmistakeable determination on its
part to oppose trusts nnd to prevent
them from in any way oppressing the
people. It shows, too, that the
trusts cannot hope to havo their own
way in Canada, no mattei how rich
aud powerful tbey may oe, so long as
there is an honest and faithful Federal
government in powor. Tho victory is
a signal ono, and is distinctly in the
interests of thc peoplo.
OUTLOOK BRIGHTENING.
Tho Kontennys and Yale will soon
have six active smelters as follows, at
Nolson, Trail, Grand Forks, Green
wood, Marysville   and FergusoD,   be
sides three that are not in operation,
the pyritie plant near Greenwood, the
silver-lead plant at Pilot Bay and a
smelter erected some years since at
Golden.
The plant at Ferguson will soon be
in operution.while a couple oi months
more should see the fire in Marysville
furnace actively burning. The plant
at Ferguson is a small one,but it will
do considerable In the way of developing a section which is rich and promising. It is a district where many of
the ledges are so ricb that tne properties can be made to pay from the start
and where those who work on tribute
can operate to advantage. Where ore
like that in tho Ophir-Lade can be
found, which gives smeltor returns of
about $700 to the ton, the "tributer"
can make money, and at thc same
time develop and show tho posslbil i-
tios of the property in which he op��r-
ates With a smelter close at hand,
like the one in Ferguson, the
"tributer" will have out little trouble
in transporting his ore to wheie he
can get quick returns from it, which
Is a great desideratum to those who
work under such a system, as they
usually aie men of small means. The
smelter at Ferguson should therefore,
play a very important part in the
development of thc Lardeau countiy.
The Marysville smelter will when
completed, coupled witb thc advance
in the prico of lead, cause the resumption of work on the Sullivan,
St. Eugene, North Slar and lead to
the development of othei silver-lead
properties iu East Kootenay; indeed,
it should give a new impetus to a
region which has a number of proper-
tics of more than ordinary merit.
At Ooldon there is a movement on
foot looking to the starting up of the
smelter which has so long been cold,
and doubtless ero long this will be
done.
With lead renfierics, at Trail and at
Marysville, more tban ample smelter
capacity and coke ebeaperon this side
of the lino tban it is on tho other, as
the price has been reduced to $4 per
ton, the outlook is that tbo smelting
industry will soon reach a stage in ith
existence when all of the ore produced
In B. C. will be smelted at home.
This will be bo for the reason that the
mine owners will be able, with so
many competing home smelters, to
sell their ores to better advantage
than if tbey sent them abroad for
treatment.
The season is opening well and with
the betterments in smelting and refining and an advancing lead market
the year 1902 should be a profitable
one to the silver-lead miners, as it
now looks as though tho worst had
been passed and from now ou
any changes that may take place will
be in tbe direction of an improvement
in conditions.

All hope of the missing sloop of war
Condor bas been given up. It Is certain tbat the vessel snsenmbed to tbe

another terrible disaster of the seas
with not a soul left to tell the terrible
details.
What Mr. Chamberlain is determined to have in South Africa is "Peace
with security." From the way the

feebleness of the resistance non

and tbe recent attempt at peace negotiations it will not bo long before Mr.
Chamberlain's desire will be reached.
Some judges remain on the bench
aftor their faculties begin to decay.
A movement is to be made in parliament to put an end to this state of
things. Judges are often reluctant to
retire because the retiring allowance
is not equal to their full pay, hut
when thoy are unable to properly perform their duties tlie very 6cnso of
the justice und of what is due the
public should compel them to give up
their seats at the proper time.
Advertising is thu life blood of tbe
business world today, aud well directed advertising is like the powerful
searchlight of a river steamer, thrown
upon a distant cottage on the bank,
cutting it out like a picture painted
on a black canvas. Thc timid buyer

publicity, just as surely as will the
eyes ot tbe steamer's pissongers follow the light thrown from tbeir vessel. They will not search the surrounding gloom for objects of inteiest

There is noth ing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in t e worst
cases.   It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, o Villa RidKe,

tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you bad overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial acted like a
charm.    Send me a full size bottle.

SORPEME COUKT.
Yesterday   Taken   up  With  Chamber
Work and Consent Orders.
A session of the Supreme court
opened yesterday before Mr. Justice
Martio and considerable business was
disposed of, though no trials were
heard. His Lordship at the opening
of court heard Chamber applications
when the following matters wore
taken up:
Fraleigh vs. Hall Mines���Defendants applied for the postponement of
tho 'rial <>' 'ne action ou account of
tho absence of H. Kinkeel, a material
witness. The order was opposed and
his lurdship would make the order
but imposed the condition that the
defendant should pay all costs of the
application and those incidental to
the postponement as a condition precedent to further trial. Tho delen-
dants refuied to accept tho terms of
tho order and the case will go to trial,
tho costs ot the application to be costs
to thj plaintiff in any event. R. M.
Mnodonald, for the defendant; S. 8.
Taylor tor tho plaintiff.
Paulson vs Heenjan et al.���The
defendant applied to strike the case
off the list for want of prosecntion.
This was refused on the ground that
an error had been made by the registrar in issuing tho writ, and the matter will come up on a new summons
today. S. S. Taylor for the plaintiff,
('. W. JIcAnn for the defenant.
West vs. Waterman���The defendant
applies I for a postponement and [ir a
commission to examine R. C. Waterman, in California. Trial was postponed and the commission granted;
costs of the postponment to be costs
to tho plaintiff in auy event, and ol
tho commission to be costa in the
cause. W. A. Macdonald for plaintiff;
S. S. Taj lor, /or the detendant.
briggs vs. frust Mining Co.���Plaintiff applied for the postponement of
the trial on account of the illness of
tlie plaintiff. Oranted, costs to be
costs in the cause. S. S. Taylor for
the plaintiff, W. A Macdonald for
defendant.
Felt vs. Dickenson���Application by
one of the defendants, R. Wilson-
Smith, to dismiss the action as far as
he is concerned for want of prosecution. J. A. Macdonald, of Rossland,
for defendant; R. W. Hannington for
plaintiff.
In court the following cases were
disposed of:
Crow's Nest Coal Co. vs. Kanotise,
vs. Malloy,vi. Carscallen���By consent
of counsel judgment was given for the
plaintiff with oosts. W. A. Macdonald for plaintiff, P, E. Wilson for
defendants.
Homer vs. Beeman et al���A.
Wheeler, for the plaintiff, announced
that the case had been settled and it
was stiicken off the list.
Adams vs. Hickey���A. Wheeler for
the plaintiff, announced that oounsel
had consented to an adjournment to
next court,
Craig vs. Rnae��� By consent of
counsel all matters of account, involving several thousand dollars, were
referred to E. A. Crease, P. M., as
special referee, for Inquiry 'ind report. Further trial of the action und

court. S. S. Taylor for plaintiff, P.
E. Wilson for defendant.

ing and eating up the waste products
and returning tbem to tbeir original
elements of air and soil. Every time
we breathe we inhale a few thousand
germs of different sons; every time
we take a diink of milk wo swallow
several billions of germs. If all
germs were noxious it will be seen
that we would soon succumb. In the
U7h century a draper of Holland made
a lens by means of which lie was able
to distinguish some of the forms oi
life found in water, but no ono traced any connection between the germs
and diseaso until 1845 two French
scientists, Davno and have discovered
germs in the blood of animalsj that
had died of anthrax. Their researches
wero completed in 1869-11 by Louis
Pastcui, und Robert Koch,
He then pabsod on to a description
of the oharastelrstic oi the vurious
germs. In size they averaged about
1-20,000 ol an inch iu tlieir largest
diameter. Most of the gcruxH grow
best at tho temperature of tho body
and in darkness. The threo ways by
wbich disease germs were transmitted
were through the digestive tract, the
respiratory tract or by contact. Even
in the bodies of healthy persons these
germs were to be found, but they did
not do any harm until conditions
occur favoring tlieir growtn, then
they rapidly developed causing
disease. He described the different
diseases caused by certain germs, and
said that at oue time it was believed
that consumption was hereditary but
medical science had shown that this
was incorrect, although the children
of consumptives eeeined lrequently to
ha\e less vitality aud less power of
resistance to the diseaso than others.
The mortuary examinations of bodies
of pe sons who had diod of diseases
other than tubercular showed that 50
to 70 had had consumption. This
showed conclusively bow prevalent
the disease was, but also showed that
a large number of systems were able
to throw it off. The death rate of tho
world showed that out of overy seven
death one.was from consumption. The
death rate for Nelson wus oue from
consumption to 10 from other causes.

ABOUT QERM LIFE.
Intrestiug   Lecture   By  Dr.   Rose   in
Presbyterian Church.
At the Presbyterian church last
evening Dr. Rose delivered a very interesting lecture on germ life and its
relation to disease, illustrated by
microscopic views of the different
forms of life dealt with. In commenc
ing Dr. Rose touched briefly on the
good work of the Florence Crittenden
society, under whose auspices the loot
ure was given. He then prefaced his
lecture by saying that lt was peculiar
how vague the impression was in thc
mind of the average layman regarding
what a germ was. Most pocplo thought
they were little animals that ate into
the system and destroyed the various
tissues. In the Brst place they were
not animals but the lowest form ol
vegetable life, and ln the second place
they did not eat and destroy, the
tissues. The majority of germs were
beneficent and those that were not, in
tho couise of their growth, produced
poisonous or toxic matter whioh acting on the system caused disease. All
life was dependent on the growth of
tho beneficent germs for it was by
means of them that plants grew. The
germs break up the salts of the Boil
and resolve them so that they can be
assimilated by the plants, and plants
that were placed in soil without
germs and watered with water that
contained no germ would die. The
flavor of cheese Bud butter was caused
by the presence of a certain germ, and
yeast was produced by the action of
another, as were also beer and all
fermented liquors.
The beneficent germs were   also the
great scavenger agents of life destroy-
The Seeeders From Liberal Convention
Put Martin in Ascendency.
The delegates to the Liberal convention at Vancouver returned late on ]
Tuesday night. Speaking of the convention J. A. Macdonald said
that from the first it was apparent
that the convention was divided on
the old Vancouver-against-Victoria
lines and eventually the Vancouver
party carried the day. The first fight
was over the credentials and when
that was settled, though perhaps not
altogether in the way he would have
liked to see it go, tbe Victoria delegation left the convention. There was a
disposition on the part of the Victoria
men to seat the Liberal editors of
newspapers, of whom there wero only
four who claimed seats, but tbe Vancouver roen ana a number from up-
oonntry were opposed to that and they
were shut out. In the credential committee some were in favor of admitting the executive committee to seats
In the convention and others to referring the mat'er to the delegates about
whose seats there was uo question.
Neither of these suggestions was
adopted and the credential committee
pronounced against the executive taking pait in the convention When this
announcement was made and adopted
the most of the Victoria delegation
withdrew as did also those from Rossland. Had these remained the result
of the convention might have been
different as some of the executive were
otherwise qualified, Their withdrawal
left tbe supporters ol Martin in the
majority and they acoepted him as
leader of the party in British
Columbia.
The Nelson delegation considered
tbat they wore there to tight for tho
instructions they bad received from
their association even though things
did not go to suit them and Mr. Macdonald thinks tha*. if ail the delegates
had takon the same view of their duty
tho result of tbe convention would
have beon further in the line of progress than it was, In the election of
the executive tho Nelaon men favored
the putting of a Rossland man on the
committee as representative of the
Rossland riding and Dr. Sinclair
was appointed though he had been
one of the bolters.
Until further notice the steamer
Kokanee will only make a trip to
Lardo once a week on Thursdays.

THE CITY
Yesterday a train of r,G cars of coke
was brorj(fht in lrom Proctor. Two
engines were required to 1 ri'ig it in.
The regular Ash Wednesday services
were held in St. tfcviour's church and
the Church of St. M;uv Immaculate
yesterday.
Six teams have been employed for
the last two weeks hauling ice for one
firm alone from the cars to the ice
house for storage. A large amount of
ice is being laid in.
Tomorrow will be St. Valentine's
day and the different stationery stores
are showing a large assortment of
pictorial tokens, ranging from the
sentimental and artistic to '.ho glaring
atrocities of the oheap comic designs.
Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Katchelor and
family, of Fairview, desire to render
their sincerest thanks to the many
friends for their beautiful floral
tokens of esteem and the deep sympathy shown them in their recent sad
bereavement.
Notices were sent out yesterday hy
the city clerk to those whose premises
were yet unconnected with the sewer
ordering tbem to have ennuction made
within BO days, otherwise action will
be taken at the expiration of that
time without further notice.
Another shipment of ore from the
Silver Hill mine will be bruught in
today. It consists of 14 carloads and
is the second lot sent out. The property is now working 50 men and with
everything in shape this property will
probably make a splendid record during the year.
COFFEE DOES IT
Facta Not Generally Believed
It is curious to natch a coffee, toper
and observe how lie or she will resist
all suggestions as to coffee being the
cause of their various ailments.
They will charge thc coated tongue
nud bilious condition to something
they have eaten, likewise the wretched condition of thu bowlcs and the
palpitation of tlie heart. The sallow
complexion is generally attributed to
a "naturally bilious" temperament.
But once in a while a p.;rson wakes
up and thows off ooffee entirely, then
tho truth begins to appear, and it ,is
an easy job to make this change if
Postum Food Coffee is tauen in place
of coffee.
A man in West Plains, Mo., writes,
"As tho colfee habit grew on me my
health declined in the same ratio. I
wao (object to nervousness, constipation, dyspepsia, and a general weak
feeling which made me unfit for business, and finally 1 became bo nervous
and thoroughly bickon down that I
could not attend to business und turned everything over to my assistant
and went to the mountains in Colorado hoping to find health in a
chango of climate, hut alter six
months sojourn I came buck in worse
condition than 1 left.
A friend insisted that I rjiiit coffee
and trv Postum and although I did
not believe it was the cause of my ill
health, I Contented to try the new
colics'. I bought a pacalige and wife
prepared it strictly according to
directions nnd t was wonderfully
pleased to Hud it so delicious nnd
refreshing: the qulttlog of coffee was
a pleasure rather   than n task.
I have now been drinking Postum
for over a year and my health bus
steadily improved; the nervousness
and dyspepsia huve entirely disappeared. 1 have gained 2!> pounds in
weight and feel, nt least, ten yenrs
younger than 1 did a year ngo.
Mnny of my friends have quit cofT
and   nre   using rustnni und 1 do   not
know   ol   u   single   ono who hud   not
been benefited,   Home of these did not
like Postum at lirst, but in every case
1 found the cause to huve been Dot
having boiled it long enough. The
directions are easy enough tn follow,
and when followed a delicious beverage is the result, hut some slovenly
cooks put it on to boll for five or ten
minutes, hut that tines not make good
Postum. After the real bubbling or
boiling has begun it should he allowed to boil nt least It minutes.''

When the result tvns announced,

Some of the nlderuien who had supported Lillio stilled that they thought

Larger Mines of the Slocan.
"The Fisher Maiden promises to
make one oi the larger mines of the
Slocan," said VV. W, Urconwood to a
Miner representative yesterday. Mr.
Greenwood is the manager of the
Fisher Maiden, which is being operated by tho Fisher Maiden-Troy
Mines, limited. The propoity is
located on Four Milo creek in the
Slocan. Continuing Mr. (Jroenwood
said: "During tho past month we
have been getting mutters in shape for
shipping and are row sacking oie as
a preliminary thereto. Tho new company took hold of the property on
March 14th, 1001, and I took charge
on the flrst of the present yonr. Under
the old regimo the development was
confined to the upper portion of the
property. Since then we have traced
tho vein down iho slopo for a distance
of 1,500 feet and have developed tho
kdgo by tunnels driven in on it.
One of the tunnels is in 30 feet
and tho other iH in 04 feet, and a
crosscut 12 fuet fr.ira this hns tapped

surface for 1,500 feet and when the.
lower tunnel is driven in the proper
d'Htance we will have 7f,0 feet of

of nn ore shoot we have.
"The ledge is from eight to twelvo
feet in width and tlio payslreak is 38
inches wide From a mnn bur of
assii.\H, which have been mnde after
cnreful samplIng, I am confident that
the oro, which Is whut is known as
dry ore, will eas'ly average 101) ounces
in silver to the ton. We nre ccrlniii
of this ns there nro portions of tho
lodge thnt will assay 130 ounces to the
ton, but I want to be conservative and
1 would rather underestimate than
overestimate the value of tbo ore. The
formation is vely easily worked and
ns much as four und n hnlf fuet of
drifting can be miiile in a dny. The
mine is about seven miles from the
lake nnd we estimate thnt the cost of
mining, tranaportatloo nnd treatment
will not run over $1"> to thu ton. As
the gross smeller return will ho about

shipping about March 1st, At first we
will send a carload a week and anticipate thnt this quantity enn be in-
