Nklson,   British  Columbia, Friday,   March 14, 1902
Eleventh   Year
ACTION WAS
INCREDIBLE
Resolutions of the Associated
Boards   Meet Little
Approval.
Board of Trade Will Fight
Against Them  at
Victoria
At the regular meeting ot the boar d
of trado last evening the following
members were ptesent: T. Allan, H.
E. Croasdaile, J. .1. Cambpell, W.
Hunter. T. S. McPherson, J. M. Lay
R. Laing, W. W. Beer, R. Robertson,
S. S. Fowler, H. Byers, T. Applewhaite, 3. W. Holmes, S. S. Taylor.
The report of the delegates to the
meeting of the Associated boards of
trade at Kaslo was received and adopted. A memorial whicn it is proposed
to forward to the Dominion government, after it has boen submitted to
the other boards of trade in the province, asking for an increase to 25 per
cent, of the duty on lead was read and
referred to a committee to make some
alterations.
J. J. Campbell, speaking of the
memorial said tbat for Canadian lead
to be sure of a market it was necessary to undersell that imported itotn
England.
S. S.Fowler said that speaking from
the standpoint of the Mine Owners'
association it was an absolute necessity that something should"ba done in
this matter by the government. A
few years ago when rich silver ore
was being turned ont from the Slocan
mines It was a comparatively easy
matter for any man with a good prop-
eity to make money. Wow. however,
the value of the silver is far less
tban what it was a year ago and is
steadily decreasing. This with the
great cut that had been made in the
pi ice of the lead which was now their
chief product, made it necessary that
everything possible that could be
should be done to lower the cost of
production and to incioase the available markets for the Canadian
product. Taking the Whitewater
mine for example the amount of
silver in the ore was one half of what
it had been and tllis, with the price of
lead one half what it was a year ago,
made a serious condition of affairs.
It was all right for tho newspapers to
boom the country and induce capitalists to come in but if present conditions continued mines would simply
have to close up shop. The mine owners were working for tho good of the
community and also for themselves.
A letter was read from Mrs. Roderick Robertson thanking the board for
their expression of sypmathy on the
death of ber husband.
A letter was read from the secretary
of the Associated boards of trades
asking if the Nelson delegates could
go Friday to Victoria and also asking
regarding arrangements as to rates
for travel. Mr. Campbell made a
motion that Mr. Holt should be telegraphed to asking him if he would
represent Nelson in prssenting the resolutions of Ihe boards to the government at Victoria.
R.Robertson said be thought Nelson
should be represented in the mattci on
an equal basis with Rossland, which
was sending three delegates. This,however, was found to bo impossible.
Mr. Croasdaile said be would like to
call attont.on to the resolution that
hau been passed by the Associated
boards relating to the mining laws.
The resolution seemed to him, to express it mildly, most extroaotdlnary
that any body of business men in n
mining country could pass hucIi a resolution seemed to him almost incredible.
J. J. Campbell arose to ieply,saying
that in justice to the other delegates
who had attended the meeting of the
associated boards an explanation of
this resolution was due. It had first
come up in connection with another
resolution. Those who supported it
had pointed out that the value of
prospects in the country had gone
down very largely. If mining became
more popular aeain the value of these
would go up, but it was only by finding out the propeities worth working
that this would occur. If a prospector
had two well worked claims thoy were
ot far more value to him than half a
dozen half worked olaims.   It wus not
right or good for the country that
scores of good claims should be tied up
unproductive, useless to the owners or
to everyone else. By this resolution
the prospoator would only have to do
$��0 worth of work and pay $12.50 to
record the assessment, thus saving
n 'ariy $10. Of course tha sating was
i i time, but a prospector's time must
be worth monoy to him as well as to
any one else, and as a miner he could
always earn $3 or more per day. It
might be said that many prospectors
did not do the full $100 worth of
work demanded, but if such was the
case they were perjurers and as such
diil not deserve any consideration of
their feelings. The prospector who
did his work honestly wonlu be helped, and the government would also
leap the benelit. From the tremendous
number of claims there were the government would undoubtedly recoive a
large revenue. Prospectors now find
that claims are a drug, they ean do
nothing with them, and as the money
to work them is frequently put up by
the merchants of the towns the present
system is injurious. If they had
an incentive to work the claims, a
pin prick as it were, many good properties wonld be discovered aad opened
up. If we ask the government to reduce the 2 per per oent. tax on the
mines we must show them where they
can *iake it up.
H. E. Croasdaile���I do not wish to
bring any reproach against our delegates but I must say I do consider the
resolution a crazy one. Where a man
has frequently after four or five years
of hard labor been able to get a crown
grant on a mineral claim, and then if
he found that the governmont says,
instead of paying 8100 a year you non-
have to pay J100 a year what would De
save? Why should he he made *o
spend more money on land because it
is his own than while he was buying
it. Iu regard to this it seems to me
that mining is being made the milch
cow. Tho tax on oidinary wild land
is 7 1-2 cents an acre, but if there is a
erown gianted mineral a claim on it,
the. o..;ie, bas to pay 2r, cents an
acre. As to the argument of upholding the land unproductive, should a
prospector be robbed of his claim
becauso he cannot find a market tor
it? The effect would only be that a
man wonld not take out a crown
grant unless they had a cortain deal
on, and the government instead ot
malting by it wonld be the loser.
8. S. Taylor said that he would
second Mr. Croasdaile's ameudment.
The principle of taxing a man to compel him to work his property was so
utterly opposed to all principles of
equity that it could be called nothing
else than anarchy. The idea of taxation was to raise a revenue. To coiu-
pell a man to do certain things with
his own property, or in default pay a
large sum, was unjust and impracticable. This was what caused the revolt in the Ameiicaii colonies and if
enforced anywhere would cause revolt.
What would be the use of a man
owning property if this was to be the
case? If a man has property he should
pay taxes hut that is all.
Mr. Croasdaile also mentioned the
resolution regarding fnel. He said
that he thought few realized the benefits that had accrued to tbe mining
industry ot the province through the
opening up of tne mines in the Crow's
Nest Pass by the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal Co. The oompany had first given
them coke cheaper tban they had been
buying it from the coast mines and
then had. unsolicited, made a further
cut to 81 per ton. This had been dono
entirely of tbeir own accord, when
they had oo opposition and to develop
the country.
Mr. Campbell's motion, as amondod
by Mr. Croasdaile, seconded by Mr.
Taylor, to the effect that Mr. Holt
should be requested to represent Nelson, and to opposs the resolution le-
garding the change in recording fees
and working of orown granted claims,
waa then put to the vote, and carried
unaimously.
RAILWAYS IN NOVA SCOTIA.

Mr. Mann expects that if all goeB
well, he will have about 200 miles of

MINISTERS
INTERVENE
REFUSE TO
ARBITRATE
Cabinet Announces Postpone-! Railway Managers Will Not
ment of King's Irish
Visit.
Lord Methuen Said to Have
Been  Released   by
Boers.
London, March 13.���The official
announcement yesterday of the abandonment of tho proposed visit of King
Edward and Queen Alexandria to
Ireland whereby the ministers assume
the responsibility for an Imperial
boycott, is quite unprecedented in
form and caused much discussion, the
general tone of which is distinctly
adverse to the action of the cabinet
which is interpreted as displaying
petty spite ard spleen.
The suggestion sought to be con ���
veyod that the dedsion arrived at was
directly due to the outbrust of sympathy of tho Irish mtnbers in the House
of Commons whon the news of the disaster to General Methuen's column
was officially communicated to tho
house, is obviously false as it was
announced weeks ago that the visit
would bo postponed. There seems to
be good reason to believe that Their
Majesties themselves all along desired
to carry out the coronation visit, and
though they have deferred it on the
advice of tne ministers they have no
intention of releasing the latter from
the onus of what is generally regarded
as a tactless movn.
The Irish papers keenly disouss the
matter The Freeman's Journal voices
tho Nationalist views, saying: The
ministers havo put a veto on the intended visit of the sovereign to a portion of his dominions. It would be
difficult for his Majesty to regret the
veto of his constitutional advisers, but
it is plain that he insisted that the
responsibility Bhould be theiis, and
not his. His ministers could nut venture to allow the king to Bee with his
own eyes and hear with his own ears
of the barbarous methods of the castle
and the deep resentment of the people.
There was danger that his visit might
have converted him to home rule or
confirmed his existing convictions.
Even the Conservative and Un n list
papersregard the abandonment of Their
Majesties' visit to Ireland as being a
severe slap at England's government
of Ireland and as a blazing advertisement of barren statesmanship.
The War secretary, Mr. Broderick,
announced in the House of Commons
today that he understood that (jcneral
Methuen, who waB captured, severely
wounded, by General Delarey on
March 10, had been released and was
expected to arrive at Kloopsdorp,
southwestern Transvaal today. The
general's conoition was favorable.
Mr.Broderick added that the exchange
of General Methuen for Commandant
Kritzingor had not been contemplated.
The trial of the commandant had been
postponed because considerable of tho
evidence to be presented had not been
completed.
Mr. Broderick later said the telegram received did not specifically say
that General Methuen had been released, but fiom the fact that he was
in the hands of a llritish medical
otllcer, it was presumed he had been
released.
JOCKEYS BARRED.
London, March 13,���The racing
calendar today confirming the news
contained in these despatches some
days ago, anLounces that tin stewards
of tho Jockey club, aftor an inquiry,
have refused to license Otto Madden
who headed the list of winning
jockeys in 1001 and Rickaby, who in
addition Ib warned off Newmarket
Heath, both on the ground that they
associated witb persons of had character on the turf. Tho jockeys are
warned that uny infraction ot thu
rules will bo vigorously punished.
Among the juckoys licensed arc the
following Americans: Clem Jenkins,
Rlgby, U. Spencer and 0. Gray.
WITHDRAW FROM ARMY.
Lonon, Marcli 13.���Tho report that
Herbert Booth, third son of General
Uooth. who was In command of the
Salvation Army in Australia, had
withdrawn from the nrmy, ie confirmed here. Ill health is the cause of
Commander Booth's withdrawal.   ""
$1,649,46, The widow is now suing to
have the assignment set aside.
Commissioner Evangeline Booth, of
j the Salvation army, who is ill with
appendicitis, has passed the crisis.
Algonquin Park is overrun with
wolves and an effort is being made to
get rid of them.
Confer With Boston
Strikers.
Industries  Suffer  Frcm the
Lack of Goal and Materials.
Boston, March 13.���With 20,000 men
idle, their ranks likely to bo greatly
swelled by sympathetic volunteers
from the Building Trades oouncil, and
the Boston Central Lahor union, which
is meeting tonight and the entire city
beginning to suffer from the effects of
congested traffic, the only ray of light
visible tonight is the hope that a conference of business interests which
has been arranged may lead to a
settlement of tbe strike.
Yesterday Governor Crane had a
long talk with tho committee of the
allied transportation council having
the strike in chargo, but at the conclusion he announced that he could
see no way at present of solving the
problem. Later he sent for Mayor
Collins and the two executives were in
conference for some time. A little
later the mayor made a statement lhat
he had no power to act. He further
said: "Until the railway officials consent to having the differences considered by the arbitration board there is
nothing more that we can do. They
are obdurate therefore our hands are
tied. The governor and myself have
done all in our power to render assistance.
The answer from Senator Hanna
jdoes not leave further opening for
woiking for immediate settlement.
The railway company against which
the striuo is chiefly directed, the New
York, New Haven and Hartford,
showed no inclination to ask for
interference by the national civic federation, and reiterates what it has said
from tho first, that its duties as a
common carrier are defined by tho law
and tbat it is compelled to handle all
freight delivered to it, whether by
union or non-union teams, and that it
has no option in the matter. Freight
business at the various railwaye,
wharves and docks was almost at a
standstill yesterday, and tho moving
of accumulated merchandise is becoming a serious matter to merchants.
The strike of coal teamsters was one
of the most aggravated features of the
day and its effect was quickly felt at
hotels, restaurants aod places having
accommodation for only a limited
supply of coal.
The brewery employees will, it is
said, be locked out by Friday if tbe
strike continues as the supply of ooal
on hand at various breweries will give
out by tbat timo and work will havo
to be suspended.
The Central Labor union is not
pleased with tho manner in which
the present strike has been conducted
and especially with the tact that they
were not consulted before the strike
was ordered. There is a very strong
feeling against ordering a sympathetic
strike on tbis account, but it is tbu
general belief that although such
action will be bitterly fought, the
meeting will endorse the strikers to
the extent of ordering out the 00
bodies affiliated in its membership. It
is also believed that the Building
Trades council will take similar action as a matter of principle. The
effect of the slriko is being felt
severely In nearby towns. Lynn Shoe
factories, employing an aggregae of
3,000 hands, have been forced to shut
down becauso ot the failure to receive
consignments of leather, and some
other establishments aro running ou
half time.

only oue goal was scored and that by
the Victorias in 12 1-2 minutes after

WOULD WORK INJURY.
Winnipeg Hoard of Trade Opposes
Liquor Prohibition.
Winnipeg, March 13.���At a special
genoral meeting of the Winnipeg
board of trade held today the following resolution was passed by 45 to 30:
"Whereas, a measure entitled the
Liquor act is about to be submitted to
the peoplo by w��y of referendum on
the second pioxy and,
Whereas, such act, it enforced, will
detriaienally affect the commercial
interests of the people of the province
and create a feeling of unrest at a
most important period in oui history
whon a large iuorease is expected to
be added to our population, and
Whereas, such act is not a prohibitory act, but permits the free importation from the other provinces and
teiritories of liquor in any quantity
merely transferring the drinking from
licensed hotels to tho homes and
licensed resorts and will not materially decrease tho consumption of
liquor in the province;
Resolved, that while expressing no
opinion on the general question of the
prohibition of the manufacture or importation of liquor into the province,
yet inasmuch as we believe tbe Liquor
act will fail in its purposes and result
in injury instead of good to tho commercial aud social interests of tbe
people, thorefore.it should not become
law."

FALLS HEIR TO
A MILLION
Rossland   Butcher   Participates In a Family Inheritance.
Wagner Car Co. Settles for
Loan   Made   Years
Ago
Rossland, March 13. ���Julius
Wagner, a butcher of this city, has
(alien iuto a great fortune. Togsthcr
with his mother, sister and a brother,
he will divide $2,7tiO,0(JO in cash and
$1,000,000 in the shares cf the Pullman-Wagner Palace Car Co. The
first installment of the fortune will bo
distributed on May 1. At present
Wagner has an interest in a nourishing meat market on l-'ir.st a\cnuo of
this city.
The story is that many years ago
Julius R. Wagner, father ol the Kcss-
land man,put $80,000 into the Wagner
Palace Car Co., which was then in its
experimental stage For this sum
ho received notes and other securities,
but Bt no time did he realize any
returns from the Investment, nor was
the amount of the original investment
ever returned. After tie father's death
and the members of the family had
attained years of maturity an attempt
was mnde to recover something from
the Wagner Car Co., hut thc company
fought vigorously, and the case
drugged on in various courts.
For fifteen years the battle eon-
tinned, sometimes being contested
bitterly and at other periods being
carried nhea in it perfunctory manner,
by reason of the fact that, as compared
with the successful company, ami its
great financial resources the heirs to
the late Mr. Wagner's estate were
badly Handicapped. Latterly, however, matters took a change. The
Wagner family secured the backing
necessary to press their claim to the
utmost, then proceeded to do so.
Three times did the ease come beforo
the Supreme court ot the United
States, and on eaoh occasion the
claimants were successful hut tho
Wagner Car Co succeeded in each instance in having tho case reopened in
tho lower coutts on technical points
whioh necessitated the case being
fought over again. This was the situation up to a short timo since when
the defendant corporation, which had
in thc interim been consolidated with
tho Pullman Palace Car Co., concluded
to settle with the Wagner heirs.
A conference took place at Salt Lake
City, Utuh, in the course of which tho
terms were arranged. Julius Wagner
was nt that time on his way to Rossland. Under the settlement tbo
family receive mere than thiee millions in cash and stock as stated
above.
Julius Wagner has not the air of a
millionaire, noi does he seem to havo
any special feeling of exultation over
the fortune that has accrued to him
since his arrival in the Golden City.
His mot tier and sister aro in Portland,
Ore, aud will he in Rossland shortly.
They will remain here for the summer
at least, after which Mr. Wagner haa
not prepared his plans.
"Doctor" A. W. Lynch was arrested
here this afternoon on several charges
of breaking the regulations governing
tbe praotice of medicine, It is
allegod that Lynch has been accepting
payment for professional services
although not qualified to practice in
the province or elsewhere.
Tho Rossland Liberal association
adopted a resolution tonight disapproving of the proposed Canada Northern land grant.

it should not bo forgotten that the
board has received from patients, and
as Hospital dues from men working
for various companies $11,203 while the
annual subscriptions amounted to $>iT 1

der of the receipts was made up irom
the city and government grants
towari maintenance. These figures
show how much bas depended on tbe
board and particularly on the secretary to make tbe luspital undertaking
a success.
During the year tbo board added to
tbo hospital tbe very important ward
for maternity cases, a step which bas
beeu highly appreciated. The report cf
the president of the board calls attention to the heavy cost of maintaining
tbis depaitment. It is hoped that this
is not intended to be construed as a
hint that the new board should abandon tbe ward and devote tbe cottage
in which that woik is oarried ou to
the purpose for which it was originally intended, a residence for tbe
nurses. Tbe work done in this ward
is too necessary to allow for a moment
a thought of discontinuing it. In a
district such as that surrounding
Nelson, with families living far from
medical attendance, at mines, on
ranches,and in smaller villages, where
there may not be a physician within
miles, wheie pioper nursing is unobtainable except at very high cost,
and where other requisites of comfort
und treatment are not procurable at
any , coEt,.the"matornity.ward . is the
most essential part,; of hospital
work- and should have boen tbe first
established instead of tbe last.
It is possible that tlie experience of
this past year will show where, by an
addition to the main building, or by
other means, greater conveniences can
be obtained aud tho amount of labor
entailed lessened, which would lower
the cost of maintainance, but the
hospital would fail iu the function of
a hospital, the providing of comfort
and pioper attendance for sufferers,
if this ward were done away with.

OUR SPRING
ANNOUNCEMENT
A MERCENARY OUTFIT.
If the statement of Christopher Sherbert, tbe survivor of the recent snow-
slide in the Kokanee mountains is
true, and he has a good reputaiton for
veracity, the action of tbe men at
tbe Mollie Gibson was to say the least
inhuman, and uncommon among
miners of the Kootenays. Ordinarily
thore is no class of men wbo act moie
unselfishly or heroically when lives
can be saved or bodies rescued ut g,eat
peril than miners. When fellow
beings are in jeopardy they do not
stop to haggle over the question of
compensation, but loose all thought
of self and risk their lives recklessly.
Many of them bave perished in their
endeavor to save others.
Compare the action of tho Molly
Gibson miners with that of Anderson,
who was operating a small hoist at
the Young British American mine in
tho Rossland camp in the fall of 1897
Tho hoist, in question in some way got
beyond his control and the bucket,
heavily loaded witb waste, began to
descend the shaft with great speed.
This meant death tc tbe two miners
in the bottom of the sholt. Without a
moment's hesitation Anderson thrust
his arm into the cogs nf tho hoist and
stopped it. The llesh and muscles of
his arm weri torn to shreds and he
���was mado a cripple for life, but the
descending bucket was stopped and
tho lives of the men in danger at the
bottom of tbe sh:ift were saved.
Compare the conduct of the Molly
Gibson miners with that of Young
Drewry at the Sunset mine in 1S'J9.
This young beio was attending to the
hoist oue night when two of the
inincis in the lower levels were overcome by giant powder smoke. There
was no ono close at hand on the surface but himself, nud yet he descended
tbe ladders for several hutdred feet
aud dragged one of the unconscious
men to the ladder and got him part
way up where he was out of danger
and then returned for thc other whom
be was unable to reach in time.
When help arrived he was in a hysterical condition and ho cried and reproached himself bitterly because he
had not saved the life of the second
man. Mr. Drewry was given the
medal of tbe Canadian Hnmano
society for his brave action and he
well deserved it.
Whenever there is a disaster al the
coast coal mines and there ls a call
lor volunteers to go to the rescue of
those Imprisoned or to bring out the
bodies tif the dead thnre is DO lmnglug
back and the leader has always os
many men as he desires to follow him
even though the way leads into the
very Jaws of deatV, as it often does.
The superintendent  is  generally  the
leader and he and BCOres of the best
miners will often risk their lives, perhaps to save a single individual. Such
cunduct is admirable and displays tlio
very summit of human nobleness, for
what sacrifice can a man make greater
than to lc,s�� his life in an effort to
save that of another, In such a case the
ilsk is all that it man can risk antl
is not done for gain, either.
It would, therefore, seem that the
men employed at the Molly Qlbson
must hoof a different type, witn another idea of the duty which they owe
to their fellow men when they are in
jeopardy, lrom those working in the
other mines of llritish Columbia.
Their conduct through the entire
affair, as related by Sherbert, is so
different (rom that ordinarily exhibited by miners under like circumstances that it seems ex,inordinary that they should be tn a calling
in which noarly evory member is
a hero when the emergency arises for
displaying heroism. Wli-n Sherbert
pays the f 100, for which they exacted
from ti 1 m a promissory note,he should
at the same time piesent each one of
the men entitled to a share of the
vocoy a leather medal.

Ilofton is tbe centre of a big strike
ciused by the refusal of the freight
handlers of the New York,New Haven
and Hartford railway to handle the
freight delivered by non-union
teamstes. Over 20,000 are on a strike,
and the trouble threatens to spread
and equal in importance the teamsters' strike of last year in San Francisco, when that eity was virtually
tied up and business was at a standstill for several months. The National
Civio Federatiou, which is composed
of the leading representatives of labor
and capital, and from whiob oo muoh
was expected is powerless in tbe present instance for the reason that the
railroad company, against which the
strike is chiefly directed, shows no
inclination to ask for interference, lt
is to bo hoped that further on the
I ederation may be able to ubo its good
otlicGs and to bring a speedy end to the
trouble. Tbis is the first strike of
any magnitude thut has occurred since
the Federation was formed and it
should make a special effort to demonstrate that it can effectually settle
labor tlisputes, aud thus pavo the way
for still moro benetieent work. Much
was expected from the Federation when
it wus organized and it should not fail

wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has

my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your

My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to nil who are afflicted with this distressing disease.

UNIQUE LEGAL CASE.
Couvicted For a Crime That Does Not
Exist and Unable to Get Recourse.
The circumstances of the trial, conviction and appeal of a man named
Watson, who has jnst completed a
term in tho Nelson gaol are unique in
seveial particulars.
In tho municipal elections in Slocan
City a case of impersonation was discovered and afterward a man named
Mctlrath was brought before Magistrate Foley and Bull charged with
that offence to which he pleaded
guilty and was sentenced tu two
months' impiisonmeiit. At the same
time Wat'on was arrested, and though
defended by counsel,was convicted for
"aiding and abetting impersonation"
at the municipal election, and was
fined $f>0 and oosts, which amounted
to 611,65 j or two months in gaol. He
chose tho latter option but took steps
to secure his rolease.
It is stated by members of the legal
profession that under the municipal
act there is no such crime as aiding
and abetting impersonation, still he
had beon convicted ana a legal process was necessary to obtain his
release. There wero three courses
open, certiorari proceedings before a
judge of the Supreme court, the legal
costs connected with which would be
high, habeas corpus proceedings, in
which case even if successful the
prisoner would have had to 'dand his
own costs which would have amounted
to more than the original fine, and
appeal to tho county court, which
appeal could oot be heard until the
next regular sittiug ot tlio court. This
sitting was held on Monday last, or
the day upon which the sentence of
imprisenmeot expired.
Tho latter course was chosen and
the case was called on Tuesday last.
Counsel for the respondent, the informant in the original trial before the
magistrates, immediately pointed out
that two essentials in the appellants'
application had been neglected,
namely the facts wero uot proven tnat
ho had beeu convicted and that notice
of appeal had been served on the respondent. The judge held that tlie
proof of those facts wbb a condition
precedent to the hearing of the appeal,
and ho accordingly dismissed the appeal with oosts against the appellant.
Watson now stands in tbe position
that he bas served a term of two
months in gaol for doing something
which is no offonoo in law, he has to
pay the costs of the action and of tho
respondent who caused him all the
trouble, ho has to pay his own legal
adviser and tho conviction still lies
against him,and until that is removed
it is held by members of the legal
profession tbat be cannot institute an
action for damages, as he caunct have
the conviction removed because the
uotion be started, being iu incorrect
form, is as thougu it had never exist
oil,and the time to bring one ia in duo
form is long sinoe past, The whole
conditions of the case are probably
unique in the legal history of the
provinco.

policy would be pursued not only at
Vancouver but at other cities of the
province. Sir Hibbert Tupper argued
that Uritish ColumOia did not get
enough, to whieh Mr. Tarte replied
that llritish Columbia appreciated the
efforts made on her behalf. Mr. Tarte
said that Kamloops was getting an
armory to cost $9 700, Kaslo $11,700,
Nelson $0,700, and Revelstoke $9,700.

He Was Formally Inducted as   Pastor
of l'resbjtaian Church.
The Presbytery and tho congrega-
ion ol St. Paul's Presbyerian church
last night inducted Rev, Dr. Wright,
mho succeeds Rov. Robert Frew, as
pastor of the church, into the pastorate, Rov. Young, of Ymir, was moderator. Rev. Joseph Bull, of Trail,
delivered a briof..bot eloquent sermon
from the text "Uo not weaiy of well
doing." Rev.Dr..I. Milieu Robinson,
pastor of St. Andrew's Presbyterian
church, of Rossland, gave an address
to Dr. Wright. Rev. W, G. Fortunse,
pastor of tho Presbyterian church at
Cranbrook, addressed the people on
their duty. Rev. James H. White, oi
the Methodist church of this city, ond
Rev. William Munroo, of the Congregational church of Nelson, welcomed
Uev. Dr. Wright on behalf of the
churches of the city, paid eleoquent
tribute to his worth and hoped that
success would crown the efforts of his
ministry.
Rev. Dr. Wright in accepting the
charge of the congregation made an
impressive address in whioh he stated
that ho approached the task witb
diffidence, because ho felt that a
younger man might perform the
tasks better than be oould. Ho bad
accepted the oharge.howovor, and after
deep and careful consideration of all
tbe oircumstances and with the help
of the congregation and a sincere
desire to work for the Master he would
be willing to retire at the end of his
term and would cheerfully turn over
the church to some one better fitted
than he was, perhaps, to carry on
more effectively its affairs. He humbly asked for divine guidance so that
the church, tho congregation and himself might be a power for good and
might triumph only over tho power of
evil. Though a man uf years he again
consecrated himself to woik for the
cause of the master.
The mederator, Rev. Young, at the
conclusion of Rev, Dr. Wright's remarks said it was a good example for
the young tj see a man of Dr.
Wright's years consecrating himself
afresh io the service of the Lord.
Rev. Robinson escorted Rev. Wright
to the door and as the congregation
passed out oach in turn shook hands
with him and mutual congratulations
were indulged in.

A PROTEST.
Editor Miner,���My attention ia
drawn to a notice in your columns
tbat the annual ball of tbo Nelson
Miners' union will be held on Friday,
March 28tb. There is surely no one so
ignorant or ill informed as to be unaware that tho date mentioned is
Good Friday, and I am sure that there
arejmany others in this town who feel
as I do, that a ball hold on Good Friday, tho most scared day of the wholo
Christian year, is a sin against good

ments to the original protocols be
tween the United States on the one
side and Nicaragua and .Costa Rica
on the other, outlining treaties to gov
ern the construction of a Nicaragua
canal have been substantially agreed
upon. Tbo new protocols yet require
signatures but the fact that they have
advanced to this point, is probably
the basis for Senator Morgan's statement to the effect that working arrangements have been completed between the countries. It can not be
learned from any official source as yet,
upon what points the new protocols
differ from those presented to the
senate during tbe last session of congress, but the general statoment is
only that the alterations are those
absolutely necessary to meet the.
points of difference between the original Hay-Pauncefote treaty (which
failed) under which they were drawn,
and the tteuty as finally ratified.

SHOWS LACK OF INTEREST.
Ottawa, March 13.���Don. Jos
Chamberlain bas written the Dominion
government in the following terms
regarding the coming Colonial cou
ference: The only question which, ii
the opinion of my ministry, gives
promise of a full discussion is that of
commercial relations between the various sections of the Empire.
The political relations now existing
between the Mother  country   and   the
great self-governing colonics and par
ticularly Canada,   are regarded by my
ministry as satisfactory, with the ex
ception of  a few minor   details,   and
tbev do not anticipate, in the varying
conditions of the  colonies   that   there
can   be any scheme of defence applicable to all. In tho opinion of my min
isters, there is but a limited range of
subjects upon which the contemplated
conference oan be productive of useful
action.     Nevertheless   my   ministers
and   I realize the   desirability ol tak
ing advantage of eveiy opportunity for
discussion     by   publio   men   of    the
Mother Country and colonies  on qttes
tions      of     Imperial     interest    and
Canada's   representative   will be pre
pared   to give respectful consideration
to   any   proposals   that   may   be sub
initted by His Majesty's government.
The lack of interest in Iinper'al
affairs shown by tbe above despatch is

any druggist. Allavs itching Instantly
and makes hair soft as silk. Take no
