(S^BfCIAlfTO THE MINER.)
J��Victo,ria, March 13.���Although tlie
Crow's Nest Southern railway hill lias
not yet Men.taken up. by the railway
committee', speculation is life as to
the fate St thfe bill. Robert Jaffray,
one of the promoters of the hill has
been here nearly all week together
with B. 8. S,. Lindsay, the well
knowri lawyer of Toronto, looking
sharply after the interests of the bill,
although they will not admit thut
this is the main or primary reason for
their presence here. .Tnffray has hail
' numerous interivews with members of
the executive and although lie will
not disclose the result fully, admits
that his reception while courteous was
not such as to warrant much hope that
his  proposition will be endorsed.
It is well,known that since the new
freight arrangement was entared into
Whereby all freight for Victoria is
handled by Dunsmuir's ferry and over
the rails of the E. A N., that the
premier has been more friendly than
ever with the C. P. K. and not disposed to ally himself with any movement
levelled against them.
It is qnlte possible that the bill will
not he allowed to get through committee. Many of the opposition are. of
course, ardent supporters of the bill
although it will be interesting to see
what stand will be taken by Messrs.
Martin and Mclnnes,' both of ..whom
are on record as condemning tlie Cox-
Jttffray deal originally, ns well as being iinti-C. P. R. Whatever course is

Angry   With a   Deputation
Who Went Down From ���
Vancouver.
Annoyed That They Charge
Him With Repudiating
Contracts.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Victoria, March 13.���A Vancouver
delegation had a lively time before
the executive this morning, Joseph
Martin was present, and after the deputation had stated its views in regard to tbe matter and before Turner
replied, he asked permission to speak.
He attacked a number of the speakers
for saying he had abrogated the subsidy to the V. V. A E. scheme. He
said be had done nothing of the kind.
The government had authorized a subsidy to a provincial company, which
excluded the V. V. & E., as it was a
Dominion one.
The government took advanuge of
that power, but did enter into an
agreement with MacKenzie A Mann,
these contractors being liable for going on with construction only if thoy
were able to get a subsidy from the
Dominion government. Progress was
to be satisfactory to the governor-
in-council. When he cams to power,
he notified them it was not satisfactory and when the house met the
agreement was abrogated, he holding that the executive had no power
to make a contract excepting for the
building of the road. In order to
protect Mackenzie & Mann against
loss, he put in a clause saying the
legislation would not, affect any remedy the contractors were entitled to
for damages. Tbat MacKenzie A
Mann had not a case was proved by
the fact that although they entered
suit, they never pressed it.
Then he pitched into the deputation, saying the citizens of Vancouver could not be bamboozled into
forcing the deputation to come down
to Victoria for the purpose of putting
money in anyone's pockets. Had the
V. V. A E. ever spent a dollar on the
scheme? He objected strenously to
mixing up promoters' interests with a
reflection on himself because he pursued a policy he believed in the interests of the province.
When he sat down Mr. Gillies for
the Vancouver deputation, criticized
Martin's course.and Turner said Martin ought to be obliged to the deputation for giving him an opportunity
for making such a good defence of
his policy. Continuing, Turner said
he could not give an explicit reply
for a few days. The government was
in full sympathy with the desire for
a road from the Coast to Kootenay.
The government intended to control
the freight and passenger rates to a
degree reasonable with operating the
road at a profit. He hoped to go even
further and secure a direct government interest in the earning of the
road.

SYSTEM.
many   others  the   following  leading

In opening the disposition of lots in
the cemetery is dealt with at considerable length. It is provided that the
lots shall be four feet by eight feet
and that tlie license securing these lots
to purchasers and their heirs shall be
SI:;.5i) for each lot abutting on a gravel road and $5.00 for ether lots, the
maximum number of lots to be acquired by any one person being six, of
which three only shall abut on a
gravel road. The ground having been
thus secured, may not be used for any
purpose other than interments, and
can be transferred by the original purchaser on meeting the requirements
of the cemetery committee that will be
appointed to take charge of tbe entire
grounds. Holders of lots will have
the right to erect monuments or stones
and to plant shrubs and floweis under
the direction of the caretaker. It is
required that the lots shall be kept
graded and turfed, the grass regulaily
mown and kept free from weeds. Arrangements can be made with the
caretaker to have this work performed, a scale of fees being fixed; by the
council, by which 82.50 Ib chaj-ged per
season, for cutting grass, watering,
sodding and top dressing, so that the
person who has all these matters attended to is under an annual expense
of $10 per lot; but" provision is made
for a reduction of 25 per ceni where
two oi more plots are held by tbe same
party. In the clauses relating to the
beautifying of lots it is provided tbat
willows, lindens, popularsy junipers,
yews, lilacs and snowballs are prohibited, and hedges and- box hedging are
not permitted.
Applications with respect to inter
mentB are to be made to the secretary
during office hours and at other times
the chief of police bas power to issue
burial permits, which must be obtained 20 hours before interment,except in
the case of persons dying from infectious diseases.
In eases of poverty tbe committee is
vested with power to remit the fees.
Where an adult is to be Interred, the
fee for such permit is 87.50, and for
children under ten yearsof, age the
chaige is $3.75. Other fees are charged varying in amount with the nature
of tne work to be done. The charge
for exhuming a. body when the work
is done by the caretaker is 820.
Several sections nte devoted to rules
concerning visitors. Bicy.les, tricycles, picnic parties, dogs and smoking are tabooed within the limits of
the cemetery. Horses must not be
driven faster than a walk within the
grounds, nor may drivers leave their
carriages during the performances of
a burial service. Persons disturbing
the quiet and good order of the cemetery will be ejected instantly. The
gates are to be open for entrance at 7
o'clock a. m., and closed in the winter at 7 p. m. and in the summer at 8
p. m. save for egress.

is charged with the task of keeping
everything neat and clean, the roads
in good repair and the unsold lots in
a proper condition. Where owners of
lots fail to comply with the regulations in the matter of keeping their
lots in proper condition, the caretaker
is authorized to do the work and to
charge the amount laid down for such
services to the parties who may not
use the lots for the purposes of inter
ments until the obligation is settled.
Under the by-law a secretary is appointed who attends to the business
arising out of the cemetery.
Under the heading of general regulations several lengthy clauses are devoted to further rules respecting the
cemetery, and for penalties for.infractions of the regulations as to preservation of  order, etc.
THE CHAPLEAU-
WILL RESUME
A Satisfactory Arrangement
With Creditors Almost
Arranged.
Company to Increase Capital
and Resume on Firm
Basis.
There is a strong probability
that the affairs of the Chapleau Consolidated will be straightened out
shortly and that the property will be
operated again at an early date. R.
S. Lennie, of the legal firm of Elliot
A Lennie, wbicn bas handled the
company's affairs since the financial
difficulties commenced, received a
cablegram from the Chapleau's head
office in Paris, France, yesterday that
indicates the policy to be adopted by
the company with regard to its future
actions. It has been determined to1
reorganize the corporation with acon-
sideraly augmented capital, the additional funds thus accruing to be devoted to wiping out the company's
obligations and to re-estalbishing the
treasury on a sound, financial basis.
Pending  such    reorganization,   the
company will  pay something  over 50 i
cents on the dollar of   its  obligations!
and  furnish  tbe   directors'   personal;
guarantee for the payment of the balance.    A proposition to this  effect   is
now before the creditors, and so far as
can be learned the feeling is such that
the offer is likely to be accepted, including  an  extension  of  60 days  to
the company.
The general understanding is that
the Chapleau company proposes to extend its operations in this district and
that one of the features of the reconstructed company's programme will be
the acquisition of further mineral
land in addition to their present
Lemon Creek holdings. F. Motngues,
engineer, is now In the city and part
of his mission in remaining here is to
examine and report on certain properties offered the company. Such an
examination cannot be put into effect
until the snow goes off.
The people who have put up the
8100,000 already invested in the Chapleau aie men of standing and wealth
in the French capital and while their
experience of mining in British Columbia has been anything but pleasant up to the present time, it is gratifying to note that their confidence in
the resources of the country is apparently unlmpaied.
gradual sinking until the end came,
which was marked by a single gasp
for breath as life departed from the
body of the great statesman. The rel
tives, with a few exceptions, and several of his old friends were at tho
bedside when he passed away.
The general's condition was so bad
tliih morning after a restless night
that the attending physicians understood that the end could not be far off
and bulletins were sent out from the
sick room to this effect, so that the
family and friends were prepared
when the final blow came.
The remarkable failing of the remarkable strength shown by the patient became more noticeable in the
afternon and a few moments before
the end, there was an apparent breakdown on the part of the sufferer.
The funeral will take place next
Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock.
Washington, March 13.���Deep Interest wns exhibited in all of the executive departments throughout the day
in the reports that came as to the condition of ex-President Harrison. As
ollice hours had closed for the day before the end came, the first information regarding the death will be deferred until tomorrow when, follow,
ing prcedents, President McKinley
will issue bis proclamation to the people notifying them of General Harrison 's death and setting out in becoming terms his virtues and characteris
tics. He also will order salutes to be
fired at the various army posts on
the day of the funeral and on ship
board when the news is received.

papers publish long memoirs of the
late General Harrison and editorials
dealing with his career.

The city council now has before it a
by-law relating to the cemetery. The
instrument is very lengthy, probably
one of the longest among all the city
by-laws, and is Intended to place the
cemetery on a proper and businesslike
basis. Up to the present time the cemetery has been run with little or no
system, and while there is no particu ���
larly pressing necessity for civic legislation on tlie matter at the present
time, the city fathers believe, and
properly too, that it is wiser to pass
a by-law reducing the management of
the cemetery to a system now than to
permit matters to ran indefinitely until an emergency calls for action.
The by-law as at present before the
council Is in draft form, and is liable
to as many amendments as the aldermen may consider advisable. The bylaw as it now stands  includes  among

Vancouver, B. C, March 13,���The

SCHOOL   BILL  CONSIDERED.
Martin's  Fight    For  City   Council's
Rights���Duke of York's Visit.
(SPECIAL, TO THE MINER.)
Victoria, March 13.���The new school
bill was discussed in the house today.
Prentice explained the provisions and
was followed by Martin who attacked
the two main provisions of the bill,
namely, the increased tax and the
power of taxation for school purposes
left with the school board. Prentice
estimates the revenue which will accrue to the province by tlie change
will be 8100,000. He said be would
not press the realty qualification for
trustees in cities and intimated that
Rossland will have a high school this
year. Prentice says the province will
get 860,000 more from Monoglians by
the new law th_n by by the old. Martin in reply insisted that the city
council alone should have the power
of saying what sums should be available for school purposes as well ub
other charges.
At both opening and closing of the
day's session there was great cheering. At the opening Premier Dunsmuir read a telegram from Colonel
Prior saying tthat tbe Duke of York
would be here in October. Just before the house rose he read a cable
from Mr. Chamberlain saying the
King had stated in reply to Hritish
Columbia's loyal message that the
Duke would visit the province.

Pittsburg, Pa., March 13.���Two
communications from Andrew Carnegie, which were officially made public
tonight, say the steel king's retirement from active business life and bis
donation of 85,000,000 for tbe endowment of a fund for superannuated and
disabled euiployces of the Carnegie
company is announced. This benefaction is by far the largest of the many
created by Mr. Carnegie and is probably without a parallel anywhere ii
tlie world.
This fund will In no wise interfere
with tlie continuance of the savings
fund established by the company flf
teen years ago for the benefit of its
employees. In this latter fund nearly
$2,000,000 of the employees savings
are on deposit, on which the company
by contract pays six per cent, and
loans money to the workmen to build
their own liomes.
In a letter to the president and
manageis of the Carnegie company,
Mr. Carnegie announces that Mr.
Franks, Ins cashier will hand over to
them, upon their acceptance of the
trust, 85,000,000 of the Carnegie company bonds in trust for the following
purposes: The income of $1,000,000
to be spent in maintaining the libraries built by him in Braddock, Homestead and Duquesne. The income of
the other $4,000,000 is to be applied:
(I) To provide for employees of tbe
Carnegie company in nil its works,
mines, railways, shops, etc., injured
in its service and for those dependent
upon such employees a* are killed;
(2) To provide small pensions to such
employees, after long and creditable
service, through exceptional circumstances, need sucli help in their old
age, and who make a good use of it.
Should these uses'not require all the
revenue and a surplus of 8200,000 be
left after ten years operation, then for
all over this, workmen iu mills at
other thad the Carnegie company in
Alleghany county, shall become eligible for participation in the fund, the
mills nearest the works of the Carne-
jgle Steel Co. being first embiaced.
Mr.   Carnegie   says:   "This fund is
notintended to be used as a substitute
for what the company has been in the
habit  of doing   in such   cases.    It  is
��� intended to go   still   further and give
to the   injured or   their families or to
employees who aie needy in   old   age,
.through no fault of thc>r   own,   some
jpiovisions   against   want   as long  as
needed   or   until young children  can
become self supporting."
Corsicana, Texas, March 13.���John
Henderson, colored, who brutally assaulted and murderer MrB. Younger, a
farmer's wife, living just outside
this city several days ago, was burned
to death in tbe conrt house square
here at noon today. A written confession of the crime, attested by
Justice Roberts, was secured from the
prisoner. Business was suspended and
many witnessed the burning.
Henderson was captured yesterday
after a long chase with bloodhounds.
Tbe officers took him to Hillsboro
and were impelled through fear of the

tbat he had murdered '"an unknovn
white lady, three miles north of Corsicana, March 6."
There was no one present, he said,
but himself and the woman'- two
little children. He said be did not
know why he had done it. When it
became known that Henderson had
confessed people assembled around
tho jail. It was decided to burn tha
prisoner at the Stake at 2 p. m., bnt
news was received that troops had
started from Dallas, and the execution was hurried.
A railroad rail was driven into the
ground in the corner of the court
house square. Boxes and dry timber
were piled around It and saturated
with oil. Just before noon about forty
men rushed from tbe Jail acioss the
square to the place where the rail
had been planted. In their midst was
Henderson, handcuffed. The men
formed a circle, liolulng to a chain
which surrounded the prisoner, to
prevent the crowd from tearing him
away. The negro was fastened to the
rail with wire and chains. Cans of
oil were emptied over bis clothing and
dozens of lighted matches touched tho
inflammable material. The fire
alarms were rung. Just as the pils
was fired, Younger, husband of the
murdered woman, jumped at Henderson and slashed him across the face
with a knife. Henderson gave uo Indication of pain or suffering. He
rolled his eyes to get a glimpse of the
angry faces which surrounded him,
and there was a slight movement of
the hands. In 10 minutes Henderson

than an occasional groan.

Crow's Nest Southern railway. Tbe
Montreal Witness, of Saturday. March
2, contains a very able article
which the subject is dealt with most
exhaustively. Accompanying the article is a map showing the rival
railway lines and the rrow's Nest
coal areas. 'Iha Witness argues that
the coal company is not dependent up
on the construction of the proposed
spui for a considerable share of American trade, as they have already been
able to make contracts both for coal
and coke, and continues: It certainly
would not be any benefit to British
Columbia generally to afford special
facilities at a sacrifice to the interests
of the Dominion and of other Canad
ian corporations simply to enable a
foreign company to secure at tbe lowest possible cost supplies of coal and
coke, and thiB would be tbe only result of granting the charter asked
for. Incidentally it must not be forgotten that the case already put for
ward by tbe British Columbia mine
owners and smelters is a strong one
and is accentuated by the fact here
brought out tbat the giving to the
Great Northern direot access to our
coke supplies would mean furnishing
the American Smelting and Refining
company, which is controlled by the
same capitalists, with the means of
still further reducing the eost of
smelting south of the line to the detriment of smelting in British Columbia,
and I in this connection the attitude
of this corporation towards British
Columbia smelters cannot be lost
Bight of, as it has already resulted in
closing tbe American -market to our
lead ores, and in compelling the* producers of galena to seek a European
market with the expense of a long
railway haul from the Kootenays to
Montreal and a corresponding reduction in their profit. Clearly then the
mine owners and smelters of British
Columbia and indirectly all tbe com
nmniticH springing up in the province
which depend chiefly upon these in
dustries, would be disadvantaged if
the proposed charter were granted.
There is, however, "another aspect of
the qnestion which has not been
touched upon at all. probably because
it is not generally understood. When
one comes to consider that the Great
Northern already possesses a railway
connection whieh would only be
shortened to the extent of thirty-nine
miles by the proposed new connection
it sets one thinking whether the
gaining of such a comparatively limited advantage would be worth all
the trouble which it is likely to cost,
and we may at once decide upon a negative reply. Whilst any increased fa
cility of transportation is worth having, especially if it deprives a competing railway of 130 miles of haulage,
and adds that to one's own mileage
earnings it is evident that the astute
president of the Great Northern is
after far more than this; and looking
at all tbe circumstances of the case, it
is only reasonable to conclude tbat
it is not so much railway communication as coal areas that he is looking for. For many years it has been
known that the Crow's Nest I'ass coal
areas extend southerly through the
North Kootenay Pass, and for some
unascertained distance into what is
known as the Wigwam conntry, and
the Great Northern railway company
has bad engineers and ptospectors at
work trying to find the extension of
this coal field south of the line. They
have not been successful, and among
the best judges it is now concluded
that tbe termination of the coal measures in this direction is well wilhin
the Canadian territory. But, whilst
this is so it is now p etty well understood that the coal extends further
than the limits of the reserve of S5n,-
000 acres, granted to the Crow's Nest
Pass coal company. The conclusion
is obvious and is certainly no straining of the probabilities of the situation, namely, that the coal company,
which, was among the first to determine this fact, relying upon the same
political "pull' which  enabled it five
years ago to secure control of   u property   which   was   then    supposed    to
"corner" all the available coal areas,
are now seeking to place their   newly
found allios in possession of the areas
which lie outside their   domain to the
exclusion   of   Canadians, who do   not
enjoy the good   fortune to be identifi-
d with their interests. In other words,
finding   that   what   they hoped was a
monopoly   is  not really so,   they   are
seeking by this method to  remedy tho
defect.    This scheme is an   admirable
one from   the   standpoint,   of the coal
company,   and   the   Great Northern,
and tiie more so because  it is  entirely independent of   the   concession   of
50,000   acres   to   the government, be-
cause the latter is to come   out   of the
380,000 acres actually held by   the coal
company, and if, ns they   claim,   this
5(1,00(1 acres is   not to   be   leased, sold
or worked except in   default of   their
ability to furnish tbe   necessary   coal
required for  consumption   in   Canada
at a price not exceeding   two   dollars
per ton. it would only remain for tbctn
to live   up  to   their   charter, and the
60,000 acres would be practically locked up in perpetuity   and would   leave
them nnd the Great Northern company
in   absolute   control of the   supplies.
This   is undoubtedly the true Inwardness of the situation   and the moral is
easily drawn. It is that whilst the ap
plication   for   the    railway    charter
should be considered entirely upon its
merits   as   a transportation   question
and as affecting the mining and smelting industries of the province, the obvious   intention    of the move   should
lead the government at once  to   make
their selection of the   50,000   acres to
which they are  entitled,   and   to   see
that these   areas are   secured in exact
accordance   with   the   wording of the
charter,   which    specifies   that    they
should   be   of   equal   value,   as   "oal
lands.    It should also be  made   clear,
as indeed, it is   from the wording   of
the clause referied   to, that the   government   is   under      no    compulsion
whatever to   lock up these   areas   and
simply   to   keep   they   as   a  card up
their sleeves, but that they have absolute freedom to deal with them at any
time as they may Bee   fit iu the interests of the country, and   are perfectly
at liberty   to   allow them to be devel
oped just as and when they like.

Another contingent of 1,000 men is
to be raised in Canada for service in

that Great Britain is assembling an

duty, so that she may withdraw her
regular forces for service elsewhere.
The situation in China <s becoming
very threatening.
The Dominion government has just
made a very great concession to the
miners in the Yukon district���reducing the royalty on the output from 10
to 5 per cent.
Signs are not wanting that affairs
in China are approaching a crisis,
Great Britain and Russia may very
easily be drawn into a conflict if wise
diplomacy is not displayed.

Tlie Toronto board ot trade favors

Kaslo wants a big deputation from

The Rossland Miner suggests that
Rossland should ask Mr, Carnegie for

The announcement that the railway
bill confirming the lease of the Northern Pacific railway by the Manitoba

in Manitoba politics for a long time
yet.  ^^^
It is .difficult to understand why
Mr. Bourassu who moved a vote of
censure on Great Britain for having
gone to war with the Boors was taken
so seriously. About the only thing interesting about it is the fact that it

speech in reply, whicli he, of course,
took full advantage of. As for Bourns-,

in consequence of the declaration of

THE G1TY
ALTERING THE ANNEX���
E. E.;phnir of the Hotel Phair has
a number'of men at work renovating
the annex to the hotel building. The
rooms have been repapcred and otherwise thoroughly renovated,
AFTERNOON TEA���
Tlie ufternoon tea given by Mes-
dames White, Gillett and Tuttle at
the Methodist parsonage yesterday
afternoon was largely attended and a
very pleasant time was spent.
CONGRATULATIONS���
Ira Cutler, purser of the steamer
Kokanee, is receiving the congratulations of his friends today on the
fact that Mrs. Cutler became the
mother of twin boys on Tuesday.
liORAD OF TRADE���
The regular monthly meeting of the
Nelson Hoard of Trade takes place
tonight at the board rooms. As the
order sheet contains several items of
interest the meeting is likely to be
largely attended.
STEAMERS CUANGED-
The steamer Moyie will be taken
off the Kootenay Landing trip for a
few days while she is being equipped
with new funnels. The Nelson will
take tbe run, being relieved in turn
at tbe Landing by the tug Procter.
HOCKEY MEETING-
C. J. Archibald, secretary-treasurer
of the hockey club, has announced a
general meeting of the club for to-
uigbt at 8 o'clock in tbe Hume Hotel.
All members are requests to attend
as the affairB of the organizaion are
to be wound up for the year.
BACK AGAIN���
Alex. Carrie, of ^the firm of Ewart
A Carrie, architects, has returned
from a lengthy trip to Ontario. Mr.
Carrie visited in a live curling town,
and is <"ntertaining tbe local devotees
of the roarin' game with tales of
the great gaines'he participated in.
FILLING TRACKS -
| The city stone crusher was started
yesterday, and rock is being turned
out for tbe completion of the work ordered by tbe council. Metal is being
placed between the rails of the
street car line, the city paying for the
material and the company doing the
work.
GETTING BETTER���
Word was received yesterday from
Ontario to the effect that William T.
Muller was recovering rapidly and
would soon be quite well without the
necessity of an operation. It will be
remembered that Muller was shot
here in October last and the wound
proved more serious than was at first
anticipated.
OPENING THK SEASON-
The local rowing enthusiasts have
opened the season of 1001 by taking
the four-oared shell out for several
spins. If baseball is not as popular
this year as formerly, it is probable
acquatic sports will receive more attention than has been the case in former years. A strong boating club in
Nelson would do much to advertise
the city.
SUPPLIES FOR SEASON���

NURSING IN ALASKA.
Need  of   Proper  Pood  and   Oare  for
Miners.
The character of the food used In
the mining camps in such that many
strong men break down under it.
Scuivy is a very common disease.
They drink quantities of coffee and
that does its worlt with thousands.
A nurse, Mrs. L. Lovell, who has
been employed in different places in
Alaska for the past three years writes
to say that she has induced many patients to leave off coffee and take Postum Food Coffee, which is very popular now in many of the mining camps,
for they have learned its value.
She says of herself that she has
been a great sufferer from the use of
coffee, and had a most shameful bilious complexion. She says, "I not
only suffered from, the looks but had a
verv serious s'omach trouble. When
1 finally quit coffee and began using
Postum Food Coffee my stomach began to recover its normal condition,
and my complexion gradually changed, until now, after a month or more
use of Postom, my complexion is as
fair as a school girl's.
X send you a list of many names of
miners that have given up coffee and
are using Postum, and in each case
there bas neen remarkable improve
ment in health.
I had one patient almost gone from
scurvy. He could not retain any
food but lived on Postum until
strong enough to take other food and
got well.
1 am going to take up a large sup-
jnlj of Postum nesUrlp."

THE HEWITT MINE.
Owners   Make    an     Inspection���Rich
Strike in Workings.
Among the visitors to the city yesterday were F. J. Holman of Spokane
and J, E. Gibson of Bennington, Vt.,
who are returning south after a trip
to the Silverton camp. Both gentlemen are members of the. syndicate
which owns the Hewitt mine, one of
the most promising properties in the
Sllvetton camp, and both are well
pleased with the outlook at the property. The Hewitt has been shipping
steadily since September last, and
as the product is a dry ore ranging in
values from 55 to 125 ounces of silver, its profit earning capacity has
not been interfered with by the recent fluctuations in the lead markets.
An average of three cars of ore have
been shipped weekly and the mine is
to continue on this basis for an indefinite period. Mr. Holman states
that the showings of ore in the woik-
ngs are moat gratifying The crew
employed at the present time numbers
30, and the management of the prop
erty is in tlie hands of the firm of
Cross A Co.
While at the mine Messrs. Holman
and Gibson examined with keen inter
est the rich strike recently encountered in tlie workings. While the tunnel
was being driven on the ledge, the ore
widened out until the entire tunnel, 7
feet in the clear, was in ore, with
ore on both sides. It was apparent
that a large deposit had been struck,
the dimensions of whicli will only be
established by crosscuttitig. For a
week the tunnel lias been carried on
In this deposit with no indication of
the vein resuming its normal width.
Tlie quality of the ore is excellent,
averaging 75 ounces of silver per ton,
and as the mining operations consist.
only of breaking the face into sacks
for shipment, the owners have every
reason for the gratification they feel,
l'lans are being laid for a tramway
to be built this summer connecting the
mine with the wagon road.

KASLO'S AMBITION.
Wants a Big   Delegation   to Go to Ottawa at Once.
At a meeting of the council of the
Kaslo board of trade on Tuesday evening it was decided to endeavor to get
all the city councils and boards of
trade in southern British Columbia to
send dolegates to Ottawa to lay fully
before the Dominion parliament the
needs of this section of the country.
Such a delegation composed of tbe
leading men of the Kootenays, men
prominent in every walk- of life, the
board thinks, will be received with
great attention at the capital und listened to with better success than
would attend a small deputation from
anyone point.
Tho chief question   to be considered
is expense, but  it was generally   admitted   that   the   state to  which the
mining industry   has come  makes   it
absolutely necessary   that   something
be  done   now,     whatever   the   cost
The idea of the Kaslo board  is briefly
this:    To   get, if   possible, two   nun
dred of the leading men of the   couu
try, and if not   that  many as near it
as possible, to leave by   special   train
for   Ottawa   about   the  end   of    the.
month.   The ears would be placarded
showing what it all meant.    The KaS'
lo board is in telegraphic communication with   President  Shaughnessy   of
the C. P. R. regarding  transportation
and it is expected   that   a very favor
able rate will be secured.
Mr. G. O. Buchanan, of Kaslo, will
be in Nelson today to interivew the
city council aud board of trade. He
ivsitcd Sandon yesterday. Mr. W, W.
Heaton, who originated the idea,
puBsed through Nelson last night, en
route to Rossland and the Boundary
country and East Kootenay.
COAST-KOOTENAY RAILWAY
Vancouver, B. C, March 13.���The
