\
A somewhat serious fire occurred
yesterday morning at the Poorman
mine. During the hour intervening
between the day aud night sliifts the
mucker who works in the interval
found thc drying room at the mouth
of the main tunnel in a blaze. The
alarm was given and the men turned
out forming a bucket brigade to the
creek. The Haines were finally extinguished but as a result opeiations
were suspended at the mine for the
flay. The drying room was utilized
for the miners to change their clothing after coining on and oft' shift. It
Contained all the men's woikiug
clothes and rubber boots. These
were destroyed and the loss to tbe
men will aggregate a considerable
sum. The company also bad a quantity of tools stoied in the room and
the damage to these,together with the
cost of replacing the loom, will probably reach $t00. Fortunately the draft
In the tnnnel was outward, aud this
prevented the Humes running in any
distance, although several sets of tim-
,beis were charred and will have to be
-replaced. Had it been a few months
earlier when the draft was inwards
the damage to the timbers might easily
have been serious enough to have
crippled th. property for several
weeks. The management will proceed at once to make good Hie damage, E. .15 Woakcs, the company's engineer, having arrived on the ground
within a few bonis of the tiro to
make arrangements for the resumption
of operations with the least possible
delay. Today the mine will be work
Ing as usual. The tire is supposed to
have stalled from a candle left burning.
Ii. K. Willey and Chris Sherbert
have arranged a comprehensive programme of development for the
Achilles group owned by them above
the Molly Gibson, and are only awaiting the departure of the snow to commence operations. The former went
up the Molly Gibson road as far as the
foot of the tianiway a week ago and
states that the snow is no less than
eight feet, deep at Ihat point and that
the roud is quite impassable for
teams for the last live miles. This
means that at the Molly Gibson mine
und the Achilles the snow is probably
10 to 11 feet in depth. Meantime
Messrs. Willey and Sherbert have
made active preparations for their
bummer campaign. A six horse barn
and a cabin have been erected at the
Molly Gibson landing and 7,000 foot
of timber with shingles and other
building material have been laid down
there u> be transported to ihe Achilles
us soon us Iho road breaks up. They
will put in a six horse team in a week
or so and propose to get into the
property on Ihe earliest possible dale,
A crew of four to six men will be put
al work, their plans calling for 500
feet of tunnelling. On the completion
of this It is possible the partners
will put in one of Ihe prospectors ie-
verberatory furnaces, having satisfied
themselves that this system of reduction is well adapted lo the Achilles.
The luttei idea is, of course, subject

Work bus been suspended temporarily on the .Juno group the reason
b.'lng that in carrying out the
contract in the tunnel now under way
harder rock was encountered than
had b-'on figured on when the agreement was drawn. M. S. Lagan, managing director ot the Juno company Is

considerab'e distance is practically
impassable for teaius. On his lust
trip into the property Captain Gilford
was ilia vii over tbe snow in a toboggan. It is necessary to walk most of
the distance on the mine end of tbe
load and tbe trip '.an only be accom-
lished with great difficulty. The usual reorts regarding the Silver King
continue to be circulated. One of
these is tbat the property has more
ore in sight at the present time than
was ever the case in its palmiest days.
Meantime the management maintain
a sphinx like attitude vrhen the topic
is broached, but there is an air of hilarity half suppressed about the jovial
manager of the mine which his
friends are disposed to regard us most
sigmHcant.
Charles T. Sleeper, whose name appeared in yesterday's issue of The
Miner In connection with the bonding of tbe Wild Cat mineral claim
neur Hall Siding,writes the following
further particulars of the deal:
"The propeity referred to was
bonded to me by Messrs. Jumier, Ba
taglia, Kalusha and Barnold, In the
sum of 835,000. The S100.000 part of it
is an indemnfying bond for the trans
fer of the bill of sule upon my performing my part of the contract, and
tendering the 825,000 on or before the
1st of March, 100K. The S8S00 referred to was deposited in accordance
with the contract prior to March 1 of
this year, and work was commenced
on the property ol April 3rd in spite
of the fact that the snow was fourteen
feet deep upon it and It was almost
impossible to get the necessary supplies in.  Work wMI in all probability

Victoria, May 3.���An original and
pretty plan lias been hit upon for
naming the new steamers of the C,
P. N. Ileot. Having an Empress line,
it is the desire or the C. P. I!, to also
have a Princess line, and the new
steamers of the C. P. N. Ilect will accordingly be christened after members of the royal family. There is
but one princess In the fleet at prcs-
eut, she being the Princess Louise;
und steps, are being taken to huve
another of the licet christened after
Princess Muy, wife of the Duke of
Cornwall. The vessel,to be so named
will be the Iliiylieu, now on Iho way
here from the Orient. Correspondence
is being carried on in respect to the
chungc and Capt. Troup hopes to be
ible to make the desired change as
soon us  the steamer arrives.
Capt. Troup states that he lias tieen
winking on the plans of the new
steamer intended for the Vancouver*

has several coiiipunles bidding on Hie

The Miner-Graves syndicate is in
the refinery field in earnest according
to .lay P. Graves, who was in the city
last night en route to Grand Forks
after spending some week or two at
the coast. Mr. Graves was seen at the
Phair last night by a representative of
The Miner and in reply to a query
stated that he had concluded his investigation into the situation on the
coast for the present and that the matter of the refinery now depended on
the result of researches elsewhere.
Englarging on the subject, Mr.
Graves said, "We have for some time
had in Contemplation the establishment of a renfieiy to treat ores mined in Canada and I have always held
chat such an institution should be established either at the west coast, on
the great lakes or at a point on the
St. Lawrence for reasons that will be
obvious to all who have given the
matter more than a passing thought.
During iny stay at the coast I looked
into all the matters relating to the
industry and have concluded that
there is an excellent prospect of an ore
supply sufficient to keep in operation
a smelter such as would be a feature
of the enterprise. At the present
time there are only a few producing
mines and the output of ore is not up
to the capacity of a smelter by many
tons, but there are a number of other
properties in a stage of development
and doubtless by the time the smelter
and refinery could be completed these
mines would be producing on a largo
scale. Apart from these considerations, however, a number of factors
enter into the proposition and it
will be impossible to give anything
approaching a definite decision regarding the refinery for seveial weeks
yet, until oui investigations in other
quarters are completed."
Mr. Graves was accompanied by A.
C. Flummerfelt, manager of tho Granby smelter, and both gentlemen left
this morning for Grand Forks.

At the opera liouse yesterday the children who are to take purl in the

reheursing and the noise of the hummers in the bands of the carpenters
who are repairing the building disturbed them somewhat, Joe Downs
went out and ordered the men to desist from the work. Of course the carpenters paid no attention to the old
circus artist and his wrath boiled
over. He hustled out of the building
and returned shortly with a revolver
which he proceeded to point at the
workmen. As the gnu was loaded
and Joe was in the same condition

Trooper   Stewart's     Gossipy      Letter
About the   Nelson Hoys.
Yesterday Constable Arthur A.
Pitchford received an interesting
letter from J. O. ..Stewart, one of the
Nelson boys in 1! squadron, Soutli African Constabulary. It is dated
Marcli 20, und' was wiitten the day
following their embarkation, At the
time of writing they were expecting
to leave atjuny moment und to make
sure of them the steamer was taken
out into midstream, Stewart refers
with pleasure to the enjoyable trip
they had after leaving Nelson. He also
refers with natural pride to the enthusiasm aroused by the S. A. C. on
their arrival in Ottawa, and claims
that II squadron from Nelson has the
best record and speaks of them as being "favoiiles ill general." Harry
It. Duvies has been appointed scr-
geunt, George Partridge, corporal,
Squadron II, while Charles llislop is
corporal In No. :i company, and all
are getting along tine. There arc
twelve hundred and twenty one of the
S. A. C. ou board, about forty coin-
missioned officers, two doctors, two
nurses, and one hundred and twenty-
live, ship officers nnd suilois. They appear to be enjoying themselves in
their life aboard ship. Tlie hummocks

London, May II.��� There was a large
attendance in the house of commons
today in anticipation of the discussion
on the new export tax on coal.
The government issued an urgent
"whip" to the unionist members, who
arc largely pledged to vote against
the tax. The government is standing
firm and is taking strong precautions
to secure a majority.
The full liouse and galleries had to
wait until nearly 'i o'clock for the beginning of the debate, Sir William
Vernon H.rcourt, liberal, led with a
severe, almost violent arruignmeut of
the government. He suid the tax-
would throw the coal trade into chaos
and confusion. It was nonsense to
say the foreigner would pay the tax.
because he would not do without coal.
The government of Ituly hud answered that plea by taking coul from
America instead of this country. The
trade of France was eqinlly divided
between tbis country, Germany and
Belgium,
The chancellor of the exchequer, Sir
Michael Hicks-Reach, interrupting,
suid: "We are beating the others."
"Then go on beating tbei_,7' said
Sir William Vernon Hurcourt. "Why
throw a shilling into the scale
against the country?"
Sir William contended that il was
class legislation, and Hint' the tax
would ultimately come ont of the
miners! wages.
The chancellor of the exchequer nd
initted that the tax, like every tux,
was an obstruction on trade. The
real question was, could the expoit
coul trade bear the tu.v, It could,
English coal was of no good a quality,
there was much of it,and it could not
be got in any other country, Thus,
to a large extent, it whb free from
competition.
The chancellor submitted masses of
statistics, which he summarized, us
showing that 1125,000,000 tons were
mined in 1(100, which, ufter deducting
��18,000,000 in wuges, more thun in
1H!I7, left the coal owners, it net pro-
lit of ��20,000,000 on n capital of Clio,.
01111,0011. He had some difficulty m
keeping his patience when deputations talked j bin bout th unp
tltable  condition of the trade.
As to the competition of the United
States, Sir Michael Hicks-Beach snid:
'"Lust year the p-ice of our coal at
the port of export rose very much
higher than the price of coul in the
United Stntes, but in spite of that our
export of coal was 88,000,000 tons, or
8,1500,Oiin tons more thun the previous
year. The United States exports a
little over 10,000,000 loos; if the United States could compete when the
price of our coal was very high, it
would be absolutely impossible for
them to compete when the price was
low."
Mr. Redmond, the nationalist   lead
er, suid the coul   tax   did   not   nlTecl
Ireland, ami In that   respect   il wus a
now era. on general principles he
urged the Irish members to do everything possible in their efforts to defeat the budget. Thc debate was ad

of un accident in whicli tho engine
ran over his ankle. Senn was injured

A RIDICULOUS GaOVEBNMENT.
Il would appear from the latest
wirings from the coast that Ihe Dunsmuir government, hus decided to
amend its extraordinary "railway
policy" so as to tiring it more in accord with the elements of decency and
justice���In other words, to desist
from further attempts to burk the
will nf the people. The government
will be acting wisely In so doing and
the country will stand to benelit a<-
cordingly; but after all is said and
done, what must the people of this
province think of the aggregation of
nincompoops at Victoria which goes
by the title, the government of the
province of Hritish Columbia'.' Is
there any intelligent man in the province who is not thoroughly disgusted
with the whole outfit? We do not
think so. The Dunsmuir government
���to put it plainly���bus done its best
since its assumption of ollice to make
nn ass of itself���nnd it bus succeeded admirably. It bas sacrificed every
vestige of self-respect in order to satisfy the whims of a few of its leading
members, outraged public opinion
to u scandalous degree and generally
so conducted itself as to bring down
upon its head the detestation of all
l-iglit-tbiuking people. Cun such a
combination of incompetents continue
tr, mle? It would be nn insult to tbe
inhabitants of this fair province to
even so much us whisper an affirmative answer.
of ull these millions of stalwart men
it is entirely impossible even'to estl-
mnte. Writers on the cost of war eistl ���
mute also that every war of any confluence directly affects practically
everybody on earth, no mutter how
far distant thev may be from the
scene of the conflict. Thus during the
American civil war, for instance, tbe
cotton mills of England were cut off
from their supply of raw material und
us u result there wns n "cotton fnm-
ine" in Lancashire, which took on
the proportions of a national calamity. As a direct result of the civil
war in the United States it has been
estimated that 100,000 workmen in
England, flcrruany, and France were
kept out of work continuously for
more than three years, with much
misery nnd starvation ns u result
T1.IIUTIC To MR, WHYTE.
TIM'. COST  OF WAB,
There appears to be great excitement in certain circles over the fact
that the war In South Africu has al-
reudy cost Qrsat llritain more than
(782,000,000. Compared with the cost
of some of the great wars of the last
century, bowevir,this sum is hardly a
drop in thc bucket. The most costly
war of all time was the civil war of
1861-65 in the United States, That
war cost the Northern States a total
of 6,200 million dollars, while the
South spent more than 2,000 million
in addition. And this does not con-
aider the enormous expense of the pensions which have been paid for the
lust thirty-live years. Next in cost to
the wur of the rebellion wns tlie
franco Prussian war in 1870. It cost
in round numbers, 2,500 million of
dollars. The Crimean war stands
third on the list of comparatively recent wars, with u total cost of 1,700
millions, The little affaii in Soutli
Africa has cost the Hritish up to
date, less thun one-tenth of what the
United States spent in the four yeurs
of its grent civil conllict, and less
thun a third ns much us I' inner and
dermany poured out in their short
struggle. Iho piesent aggregate wur
debts of nil the milium, in the ivorld
arc so great ns to entirely puss coin pin-
henslon,    Tbey   sum    up    more   than
no,ooo millions of dollars.   As there
arc nearly 1,600 millions of people In
the world it will be seen thut if
equally divided niiiong them Ihe
world's win debt would give an aver-
age of (18 apiece for every man, woman, ullil child In the world to curry
Even more  startling   are   the figures

the C. P. Ii.,"the Iiiroiito Telc'rum
says: "Canadians may criticize the
C. P. 11. us a force in politics without
censing to adin're it as a railway.
There is much to admire In the system which permits the power of .7. \V.
Leonard to rise to larger responsibilities at Winnipeg nnd encourages the
merit of Thomas Williams by promotion to the rank of superintendent.
The mun never lived who was less
spoiled by success thun .1. \V. Leonard. There is nothing of the gaudy
showman in bis make up, but lie is
capable in the highest sense, und his
future is bright with the promise of
larger uselulness to the railway, credit to himself and honor to his country. Merit also explains the advance
of General Superintendent Williams,
nnd his career should be crowned by
still greutcr success. A public value
attaches to the promotion of such a
mun as William Whyte to almost the
highest place in the leadership of the
C, P. H. Success worthily won und

and the railway service ne'er, in nny

been identified so long.''
must know, ure directly und expressly
repugnant   to the   Dominion   railway
law, nnd no railway   company subject
to the   exclusive   jurisdiction   of   the
Dominion   parliament    could   legally
comply    with  them,    The   legislature
and the public   must nut   forget   that
the settled   policy   of   the   Dominion
parliament    is   only   to grant  aid   to
railways   when   such   railways   huve
been   declared   to be for   the   general
advantage of Canada nnd have   tln?re-
by, under piovisions   of the 11. N. A.
Act, become   subject   to   the   general
railway law uf   Canada.    This is   thej
policy not of   any   particular   govern j
ment or party, bill   the settled    policy
of tbe parliament  of  Canada,   which >
is never   departed    from.    It  is there-!
fore obvious that no railway company
accepting     aid    from   the   provincial
government on the  attorney-general's,
terms can entertain the smallest hope
of assistance from   the   parliament of
Canada,
While the   ostensible policy of   the
government is the co-operation of the
Dominion    and    the province   with   a ,
view to aid    the railways   which   the
people of this   province   unanimously
demand, the real policy   put  forward
[ In Mr. Elbert's bill is that the govern-1
| ment shall   say to any   railway desir-
i ing lo tuk*- advantage  of   the offer of
(the   province:     'If   you   accept   uid
, from us you must be prepared to carry
lout the woik without assistance from
I the Dominion.'*    In other words, Mr.;
I Elbert's policy is that the construction
! of the Coast- Kootenay   railway   shall
i be   indefinitely   delayed.    The C.P.R. j
will gain what the people lose by this
delay.    The   people   will   await with
interest   to see who is for   Ibeiii   and :
who is for the C.   I'.  K.
Perhaps Mr. Eberts   hopes  Unit  he
wil" be able to   protect   himself   from
1 public   odium    by   arousing u contro-
| versy     between    the   Dominion   and
i tlie   province   on this subject, and he
may  expect   in   this  assistance from
I others   who   arc not members  of   the
I government.    Hut   thc   game is alto-j
I gether too transparent.   The people of
i Hritish Columbia   will nut   have   the'
Coast-Kootenay railway   sacrificed   to
I the advantage   of   Mr     Eberts, or to'

(IPalOAT NAVAL STATION.
Following tho announcement nf extensive works to be commenced iu
connection with the 'ortificutions of
Halifax this summer, comes the report, on what is considered the best
authority,that Halifax,which hus been
an iunpoitunt military station sime
1T4II, will shortly pass under the exclusive control of the Hritish Admlr
alty. The intention is to make Halifax one of the greatest naval stations
in the world, and In addition to the
men of the fleet, there will be a reserve of '.,000 sailors nnd marines, including 600 murine artillerymen. It
is proposed to station a regiment to
be known as the Royal garrison regiment at Halifax, which will of course
be under the orders of the adimralty,
and the geuerul who bus always commanded the station will he replaced
by a British admiral. The works ul
Esqulmalt, which hitherto have been
under both army and naval departments, are to be controlled in future
solely by the admiralty.

SOCIALIST MEETING���
Some time ago Rev. J. it. Morgan
preached a sermon in tbe llaptist
church on "Individualism and Socialism," which, suggested to the members of the Socialist club tlie idea of
inviting the rev. gentleman to attend
the meeting uf the elub and hear his
sermon discussed. This plan culminated last evening in the Miner's union hall wires Rev. Mr. Morgan addressed a full house on the question. A
good natmeal discussion followed his
address, when the church Ride of the
question anil the labor side of it were
discussed pro and con. Naimally
considerable ditVerence of opinion existed, but the utmost good nature pre
vailed. Some very pronounced opinions wen- expressed, but the proceedings were perfectly harmonious and
thoroughly enjoyable and the result
may be that meetings of tins character will become more gcneial.

that will relieve and cure the more
severe and dangerous results of throat
and lung troubles What shall you
do? Uo to a warmer and niqre regular climate? Yes, if possible: if not

take tbe only remedy that has been
introduced in all civilized countries
with success in severe throat and lung
troubles, "Iiosehee's German'Syl-up."

(iooD CONCERT���
Tbe Rocky Mountain Rangers delighted several hundred citizens with
their open air concert on Baker street
last night. The programme, while
biief, was well arranged and was a
fair test of what the organization may
be expected to do this summer. The
concensus of opinion was that the
band played' splendidly, the tempo
aud harmony being admirable throughout.
ONE IN THREE.
Every I aim IVmoii Poliunrd I.) Colter.
It is difficult to make people believe
that coffee is an'absolute poison to at
least one peison out of every three,
but people are slowly finding it out,
although thousands of them suffer
terribly before they discover tlie fact.
A New York hotel man says, "Each
time lifter drinking coffee, 1 became
restless, nervous and excited, so that I
was unable to sit five minutes in one
place, was also inclined to vomit and
suffered from loss of sleep, whicli got
worse and worse.
A lady said that perhaps coffee wus
te cause of my trouble, aud suggested
that I try Postum Food Coffee. I
laughed at the thought thut coffee
hurt me, but she insisted so hard that
1 finally bad somo Postum miiile. 1
have been using it in place of coil'ee
ever since, fori noticed ��� that all my
former nervuiiness ami irritation disappeared. I began to sleep peifectly,
and the I'ostum tasted as good or better thun the old coffee, so wbut was
the une of sticking to the beverage
that was ruining me'.'
One day on an excursion up the
country I remarked to a young lady
friei.d on ber gieatly improved appeal nee. She explained that some time
before she bad quit using coffee and
taken I'ostum. She had gained a
number ol pounds and her former palpitation of the heart, humming in
the ears, trembling of the hand, and
legs and ether disagreeable feelings
hud disappeared She recommended
me to quit coffee ami take Postum
and was very much surprised to find
that I bad already made the change.
She suid her biotber had also received great benefits from leaving off
coffee and taking on Postum Food Coffee." Henry A. Mader, :i2I W. 3,'ld St.
