Eleventh   Year
WAR PAETY
ASCENDANT
Argentine   Populace   Indlg
nant at the Terms of
Peace.
Withdrawal  of   Police  Dls-
Approved ln Buenos
Ayres.
Washington, Deo. 28.���Official advices received in diplomatic quarters
here indicate that the Chile-Argentine
controversy is again opened. According to these advices, the peace nro-
tocol referring the whole subject to
:i rl ii (ration was signed in Santiago
three days ago, but the action of tho
Argentine minister in placing hia
signature to the document seems to
have caused resentment at Buenos
Ayres, both among the prominent
officials and the people. Accordingly,
yesterday the Argentine minister informed Ihe Chilian Foreign olliee that
he wns unable to concur in all of the
terms which hnd been agreed upon
heretofore and signed. In particular
he specified two points on whioh tho
Argentine government refused to
.subscribe, first, the withdrawal of the
police from Ultima Esperanza province and second, tho submission to
King Edward VII. of England. The
formal refusal of Argentina to sign
has not yet been submitted, but the
informal statement of the minister to
the Chilean Foreign office is regarded
as a serious interruption if not n ter-
niinatiou of the proposed settlement.
The riotous demonstrations, which
occurred ir the streets of Buenos
Ayres last night aro thought to have
resulted from the signing of this
protocol and to have been expressive
of popular disapproval of tile settlement with Chilis. The popular sentiment in Argentina is very warlike
and this leads to the belief in well
posted quarters that President Roca
will not succeed ia any policy which
contemplates an adjustment with
Chile. The Chilean Charge d'Affaires
Mr. Infante,said today: I note that a
published statement to the effect that
Argentina looked upon the recent
protocol as an evidence of her very
pacific-tendencies, iu that it yielded
what she regarded as her unquestionable rights in the Ultima Esperanza
district. As a matter of fact the
Ultima Esperanza district has been in
the undisputed possession of Chile
for some time. Our police were there
and so when it came to a question of
arranging a status quo, pending a
final settlement, an understanding
was reached that the jurisdiction of
Chile should bj maintainea in Ultima
Esperanza territory. In these circum
stances it is difficult to see how Argeutina has yielded any unquestioned
right, for if there has been any yielding in the interests of continued
peace, it. has been through tbe oonsid-
erateness of Chile.
say that Gen. Teovigildo Rodriguez
commanded Honda's small garrison.
Gen. Marin's large fcrce of insurgents
attacked the place early in the morning of Dec. Oth. At 8 n. in. Gen.
Londono brought up 200 government
reinforcements from La Ciguente
across the Magduloaa river, facing
Honda,
By 11.30 the combined forces drove
away the enemy from Honda. In the
evening the insurgents on arriving ut
Caraoli, near Marquita, awaited the
government troops in two wings. It
was there that bayonets and machetes
were freely used as the insurgents'
ammunition was exhausted. The vanguard being surrounded the government troops with the aid of the rear
guard succeeded in breaking the line
and utterly routed the enemy. On the
following morning when 400 were
found to have been killed, the insurgents retreated by way of Guayaquil
taking their wounded with thorn. The
fighting in this engagement has been
characterized us uncivilized. The
Liberal colors bore Ihe device.: I
neither ask nor give quarter.
CONDITIONS MORE STRAINED.
Venezuela Suspends Traffic on the
German Railway.
Willemstadt, Island of Curacoa, Dec.
IS.���Reports reoeived here from Cara-
cas today say tlie relations between
Germany and Venezuela become more
strained every day. The Venezuelan
goveroment suspended traffic on the
German railway beoause tbo company,
in view of the threats of the insurgents, refused to transport troops
unless tho government guaranteed it
against losses which might be sustained by Ihe destruction of its road
and equipment. The stations are occupied by troops. The German lega-
tlou at Caracas has entered an energetic protest against the government's
action.
REDUCTION IN TREATMENT RATES
Canadian Smelting Works at Trail  Cuts   Smelting
Charges on Products of Silver-Lead Mines
$3.00 to |$4.00 Per Ton.
SALE OF ST. THOMAS.
FIGHTING IN COLOMBIA.
Danish Government Will Submit the
Step to a Plebiscite.
Copenhagen, Dec. 28.���The agitation
against the sale of the Danish West
Indies has planed tho government In
an embarrassing position. There is
considerable difference of opinion as
to how far public sentiment against
the sale is genuine and how far it is
the work of speculators and promoters. At any rate, it has impressed
the Foreign minister to the extent
that he is determined to request Secretary Hay to allow an arrangement
being made for a plebiscite. This
matter will be settled through Copenhagen aud not through the Danish
minister, O. Urun, at Washington.
It is generally declared in well informed circles here that tbo islonders
favor the sale. The chief argument
advanced, however, by the large
majority is that there should be a
plebiscite liko that of 18B7. The fact
that thc Danldh government is roopen-
ing tho negotiation indicate that
there is considerable doubt in the mind
of the authorities as to how accurately
they have gauged the sentiment. In
the meanwhile those who are opposed
to the sale ure formulating numerous
plans for realizing on the tropical
asset so long neglected. A company
has just been formed for improving
the econoihic status of the islands in
the event that lliey are not sold.
A Refinery to Be Erected at Trail at Once.���Nelson
May Have One in Near Future.���Precautions
Taken Against Falling Prices.
(SPECI41. 10 TDK MIM'.U.I
Trail, B. C, Deo. 28.-W. H. Aldridge has just returned from an extended eastern trip and states that
the Canadian Smelling works will
proceed at once with the construction
of a refinery at Trail of sufficient
capacity to handle thc present bullion
output of the country. The plant will
be, to a certain extent, experimental,
bnt as soon as it is shown that sufficient bullion can be obtained to insure
its becoming a commercial success it
will be enlarged and extended, or
possibly, another plant will be built
at Nelson or on the coast. Mr. Aldridge says that nil of the metal
markets have been most unsatisfactory to mines, smelters and refineries.
The fall in lead and silver has effected receipts of some of the Kootenay
silver-lead mines to the extent of
$11011.001), annually, comparing the
quotations for these metals in January with those at the present time.
The smelters have also lost heavily,
in buying and selling on a falling
market, it requiring on an average of
from four to five months for the smelters to realize upon metals purchased
from thn time the ore has been bought
from the mines. Thc decline in metal
prices since thc beginning ot the year
has been, approximately, as follows:
Copper from   17   1-2   cents to   12   1-2
n
I cents per pound ; London, lead from
��18 to ��10, and silver from 62 cents to
54 cents per ounce.
The railways and smelters are
thoroughly ali^e to the situation, and,
while London lead is at present
prices, will join In making a reduction for the coming year in freight
and treatment charges, on clean lead
ores, of 81 per ton. The smelters are
willing to reduce their charges, providing they can bo relieved from tbe
danger of incurring further losses due
to decline iu metals, and as it is generally conceded that the present prices
of metals have nearly reached bottom,
it wonld seem entirely fair to the
mines to make the change at this
time. To accomplish this it is proposed (hat preliminary stetlements involving the payment of 90 per cent, of
the proceeds will be made as soon as
the results aie obtained at the smelter, the final settlement to be made on
quotations for metals 90 days after the
preliminary settlement. It is proposed to rednce the zinc limit from 10
per cent, to 8 per cent., which would
mean that on clean lead ores carrying
40 per cent lend and over, the total
reduction in freight and treatment
charges will be $4 per ton, while on
ores containing over 8 per cent, zino
tho   net   reduction    will   bo   $3   per
ton.
Tbe above reductions in rates will
not oompensate tbe mines for their
losses in the decline of metals from
the first of the year to the present
time,but as the quotations for London
lead during the latter part of 1900
and the beginning of 1901 were abnormally high,it is hoped that the mines
will find it in their interest to continue operations at these figures.
Thc average price of London lead for
a number of years has been between
��12 and ��13 sterling, aud as a reduction of $4 per ton for oro is equivalent
to til per ton of lead, assuming thc
ore to contain 40 per cent, lead, and
that the smelter pays for 90 per cent.,
tbis reduotioti of $4 would correspond
to an increased price foi lead in oro
of ��2 Us. making the present lead
quotation, on the basis of last year's
rates ��12 9s. 9d.
Mr. Aldridge says his company is
spending large amounts oi money in
enlargements and improvements, and
will oontinue to do so tn spite of tbe
present temporary depression in the
metal markets, believing that there
will shortly be an improvement in
these prices, aod that the production
of the silver-lead properties of the
oountry will get baok to former
figures.

A FATAL FORECLOSURE.
A Wealthy Farmer Riddled With
Ilullela By the Evicted People.
Hudson, N. Y., Dec. 28.���A sensational episode to one of the most sensational murders .ever committed in
this vicinity culminated this afternoon in tho confession by Harvey
llruce, aged 21, in the form of a statement to his mother and aunt. The
statement is witnessed by Mayor Chas.
S. Hatvey and County Treasurer N.
Mucy, and tells how the murder of
Peter A. Hnllenbeck, the wealthy
farmer of Grcenport, was committed
by himself and Willis, Burton and
Fred Van Woriner, brothers, aged 20,
and 20, nephews of the murdered
man. The full purport of the confession will not be given out until Monday morning at tho inquest by the
coroner, but enough has been told to
show that the murder was deliberately plauned. It shows that the
prisoners who all lived in Kinder
hook, 18 miles from the Hallenbeck
home, rode on Christinas eve to Ihe
scene of the crime, tied their horse
to the burn of the victim, walked to
the lonr of the house in the bright
moonlight, rapped on the <'oor nnd
when the old man opened it, shot him
to death, tiring 13 shots, 11 penetrating the body. The crime was witnessed by Hallenbeek's wife and old
mother, tlio other members of the
family attending Christmas evening
services less than a mile distant. The
Van Warmers lived until last fall in u
house in Grcenport, mortgaged to
Hallonbeck. The mortgage was foreclosed and the family evicted. This
was the basis of the ill will held
against the victim.

STORM SWEPT
PUGET SOUND
Froser River  Farmers  Suffer.���One   Logger
Killed.
Many  Vessels Went Ashore
or  Dragged  From
Moorings
VuEoouver, Dec. 28.���The results of
the wind storm here on Thursday
judged by all information obtainablo
to date will not be nearly so disastrous as at flrst conjectured. The
dykes washed away on the delta
lands were iuferior structures of looso
earth, which were not calculated to
stand any extraordinary pressure.
The loss among farmers resident on
Lulu and Sea islands and on other low
lying sections around the mouth of
the Fraser will probably be considerable, >iut it is thought that salutary
effects will follow in lending to thu
construction   of modern dyke    works.
No   loss of life fairly  attributable to
tbe storm Is thus far reported, excepting tbe ease of George Clark, a logger
t Sechelt, who was killed by tho
falling of a tree, which was blown
lown on top of the shack in whieh he
was sleeping, crushing the structure
and himself.
DISASTERS AT CLALLAM.
Seattle, Dec. 28.���The saddest of
marine disasters in the history of ths
Noith Pacific is expected by locul
marine men from Clallam bay. Tbo
late of nine vessels cntight by the
Christinas storm in Hint body of
water, is not known. Mariners fear
thut one or all may be lost. Sound
tugs have gone on the lookout for
these craft. The vessel are: American
ship William S. Mucy, American ship
Banalore. British ship Oweenee, lliit-
ish ship Ivema, American barkentine
Katy Klackingvr, American bark
Carleton, three American schooners,
names unknown,
All were seen at anchor in Clallam
bay on Christmas day and none of
them is known to have left before the
storm broke. That any vessel caught
in lhe buy during the storm could not
have escaped is tho opinion of marine
men.
VESSELS BLOWN TO SEA.
Port Townsend, Dec. 28. ���Reports
of havoo wrought by the storm down
the straits arc. being brought in by
boats and confirm the worst reports of
the disaster to shipping with the exception of the ship Pnekard, which
according to reports brought hero by
the steamer North Pacific, is now
ashore on Trial island, after dragging
from her ar.cbnruge in Royal roads,
nnd brought up near the entrance to
Victoria harbor. She is not in immediate danger unless another storm
should come up. The schooner Minnie
A. Cain is high and dry on the north
side of Smith island. The British
bark Uankburn is reported missing,
She was anchored in tho Royal roads,
and her captain who was ashore when
the storm came up, was unable to get
aboard. During the night the bu
broke from bcr anchorage und nothing hns been heard from her since,
RAILWAY WORKS DESTKOVED.
New Whatcom, Dec. 2S.���The storm
of Thursday wrought great dumuge to
property along the water front here.

PLACER MINING
If the Horsefly placers should yield
anywhere near as much gold as the
Klondike they would maku a number
of miners wealthy. The Klondike
placers have up to date yielded about
$n;, 000.000. The output last year was
$28,000,000. The returns for the present year nre not yet in, but it is
thought tbey will fall sightly behind
that of last year. The belief is prevalent that the output from now on
will decline and it is conceded tbat
by the end of 1003 the richer gravel
beds will all have been worked out,
So far as explored there are in the
Klondike about seventy miles of creek
btd gravels cntrcing gold in paying
quantities These beds vary in width
from 20 to 1,000 feet. The gold is dis"-
tributed unevenly, with lean and
rich 6pots. After the placer miner
will oorae the big hydraulic and the
'ode companies who will prolong the
productive life of the country indefinitely.
The placer mines of East Kootenay
were found in 1801 and in a few years
Wild Horse and other creeks yielded
about $n,000,()0l). Then came the
bvdraulicing companies, and the section has yielded more or loss gold
eve.-y year since and a reoeot estimate
of the Fort Steele Prospector placed
the output this year at something ovre
$211,000.
The Cariboo placers were found in
1861. There were four miles along
Williams creek wbich nre said to bave
been the richest gold placers ever
worked The bulk of the gold was
taken out in !he lour years following
discovery. The yield of gold in the
four yenrs following the first find in
Cariboo wns about $10,648,239 from the
Cariboo and othei placers. Ilydraulio
mining is still in progress in Cariboo
today forty years after the discovery.
The mining is in the bunds of large
corporations. There bus net been
much lode mining although there aro
a numuer of lodes carrying ore of n
pay grade. Owing to the difficulty of
getting in machiuery lodo mining has
not assumed large propoitions. If
Cariboo had railway transportation
lido mining would soon becoome a
large and profitable industry.
The plnctrs of California were
practically worked out so fur as the
individual placer mines was concerned in about ten years. The placer
miner wns replaced by hydraulic and
lode mining companies aud now over
half a century from the time of discovery gold is still being hjdrauliced
out of ,the gravel b.ds and extracted
from the lodes. In the 58 years since
discovery 81,860,000,000 in gold has
been extracted in California.
In the Klondike history will repent
itself and in a short time thc placer
miners will be replaced by large aggregations of capital which hydraulic
down the hills along the rich
creeks, and Und.old ertek and river
beds which will be ns rich as the
original claims were. The lode
miner, too, will operate the ledges
Gold will be won but it will be witb
the expenditure of more time and
money than wus the case with the
placers.
Should the Horsefly river placers
turn out well it would be of great
benefit to thc province in many ways
It would bring it into increased prom
inence aud would aid iu tlie develop
ment of the lode mines, as capital for
uD Borts of miuing would be attracted
here   more thnn ever.
Novy will rank with Jenner and the
other great leading lights in tbe medical world if the antiseptic wh'eb is
called benzozone will do tbis. In
fact, Professor Novy will take higher
rank than Jenner as vaccination only
prevents smallpox in some instances
and in others varies in intensity,
while be has apparenty discovered a
remedy whicb will prevent a group of
tbe most destructive diseases known.
Cholera is one of the most fatal of
diseases while typhoid fever claims
victims in nearly every community
during oach year and but few communities are ever entirely free from
its baneful effeots. The new antiseptic would have resulted in the saving
of many lives in South Africa where
enteric fever has been as destructive
to the soldiers fighting the Boers as
the bullets of the enemy, if it had
been earlier known. It is sincerely
hoped that the discovery has all the
merits which are claimed for it.

Manitoba's oup of materinl prosperity this year is full to the brim.
It is announced that in addition to a
bumper yield of over 50,000,000
bushels of wheat, nearly 28,000,000
bushels of oats. 6.500,000 bushels of
barley, the province's dairy products
of tbe season is worth no less than
$!)2(i,000. The Manitoba farmers have
also sold this year 152,000 horses,
263,000 head of cattle, nearly 95,000
hogs, and many 6het)p, and a good
hay crop has been stacked.
Canada's material prosperity is ad-
incing in a rapid manner. The story
told by the revenue returns for the
five months of the fiscal year ending
in November is thus set forth in the
Toronto Olobe: "The total of $23,141,-
976 was 81,037,271 more than for the
corresponding period of the previous
year, and $6,941,129 in excess of the
ordinary expenditure for thc same
period. Tbe expenditure on capital
account during the period under con-
side ration was 85,285,225, an aggregate exceeding the expenditure under
that head for the corresponding five
months cf tbe previous year by about
$800,000. An impoitant item in expenditure was the payment of $227,837
for iron bounties, of whioh $42,25?
was paid last month. By the recent
legislation introduced these bounties
are made lo gradually diminish and to
disappear in five years. Of the aggregate revenue $13,262,089 came from
customs, a gain of $1,01)3,750 over the
corrpponding period in the previous
year. Excise taxation yielded 84 -
200,183, an increase of 875,703, and
the receipts from pablic works aggregated 82,758,539, a gain of 8253,774.
The various sources classed as 'miscellaneous' show a slight decline."
IS IN FIELD TO STAY.
A dispatch from Montreal states
that the Canadian Pacific syndicate,
which last summer pun-hnsed a group
of iron claims near Kitchener from C.
P. Hill and associates had recently
acquired four more for 825,000, and
had bonded the remained of the properties owned by Mr. Hill and associates. This means that the syndicate
is satisfied with the iesult of the extensive development work wbich il
caused to be done on the properties
to demonstrate the extent of the iron
ledges and the fitne��s ot the ore for
iron and steel making. It also means
that the syndicate has determined to
go on with the plan made public
sevcial months since of extensively
developing the properties und erecting
iron and steel making plants elose to
the location of the iron deposits. It
is cenain, too, when work is resumed
iu the spring that it will be on a
large scale. In this work a constantly increasing foico will be employed
and when the iron and steel plants
are finished they will furnish work
for an indefinite period for hundreds
of men, skilled and unskilled. Tbis
determination of the syndicate to go
on willi its plans means a great deal
to the province, and will be of considerable help to Nelson. It will give
Kootenay another resource to stand
on besides gold, silver, copper and
lead mining.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
An earnest effort is being made hy
parties Interested In arsemo-carrying
ores in Canada to have bounties placed
upon its production by both Federal
nnd Provincial governments, says the
Mining and Engiueeiing Journal. A
meeting of citizens was recently held
in the town of Aotinolite, and an address uskirg for the bounty was sent
to the Minister of I'inHnce ut Ottawa,
and a similar appeal wus made to thc
Commissioner of Crown Lands at
Toronto, The pica is made that the
trade in tbe United States ought to be
cultivated, nnd the Canadians wish to
he placed in a position where they can
ooiiipetc successfully with arHenio of
European production in tbe American
markets. At present no artenic is
produced commercially in tho United
States.

There is nothing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in tbe worst
cases.   It euros when ell else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,
111., says: "Yonr trial bottlo of Asthmalene received in good condition, I oannot
tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ton
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1

this dreadful and tormenting disease, As-
i.hma, and thought you had oveispoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
Fo my astonishment the trial acted like a
charm.    B��nd me a full size bottle.

BANKRUPT SALE
Uur Sale continues to be a big success and the reason is not far to seek, for we bought the
stock at a low rate on the dollar and we are therefore enabled to sell goods at
Much Lower Prices Than Some of Our Opposition
Although somewhat small we are evidently a sharp thorn in the side of one of our numerous wculd-be big competitors, who have condescended to take notice of our big sale. They
say they have no old bankrupt stock (sour grapes) for the same people tried hard to get
this same stock, but were just a trifle too low. 1 his stock of Clothing of Mr. Madson's is
the Newest in Nelson, for the reason that it is only about two years since he went into (he
Clothing business, and moreover Mr. Madson is well known to have been a friend of the
working man and for that reason did not purchase his goods from Cheap Labor Shops
but from the most reliable manufacturers in the Dominion. Isers and would-be Stayers
sometimes sell Branch Stores and also have Discount Sales to raise the  wind, by George.
No small io per cent discount in our sale but everything in the store   goes   at and under
wholesale cost, which means a saving these hard times of 50 per cent and over.

comical situations and is  interspersed
with solos and dnets, the leading ones
