Interesting Report Submitted
to Annual  Meeting
Yesterday.
The annual general mooting of the
Kootenay Lake Geeneral Hospital
society was held yesterday afternoon
in the Hoard of Trade rooms. Those
present were Messrs. F. Bailey, F.
Fletcher, F. W. Swannell, Dr. Arm-
stiong, T. G. Procter, H M. Fuller-
ton, Thomson, D. McArthur, S. P.
Tuck, sheriff, B. Robertson, Dr. D.
Labau, H. R. Cameron,S. M. Rrydges,
.1. A. Turner, J. M. Lay, Dr.Quinlan,
George Johustouo, D. ,1. Robertson,
F. Starkey, C. W. Husk, W. P. Tierney, J. Gibson.
The minutes of the preivous meeting wero road and accepted. Tlie
president then read his report whioh
was as follows:
Gentlemen,���I have niuLdi pleasnre
in presenting to yon the annual report
for tho yoar 1001, giving tho results of
the operating of our hospital for that
period and for your own and tho gen-
eral public's Information, what the
present board has accomplished.
At the commencement of the year,
the directors had to faoe a debt of
about $3,10!), outside of the current
accounts, whioh hnd been incurred
during the previous year in the erection of the cottngo adjoining the main
hospital. We were fortunate enough
to obtaiu an increased grant from
both the city and the government for
building purposes whioh enabled us
to clear off this debt and complete
the furnishing of tho new building.
During tbe year our revenue from all
sources was lis,249,71 and this you
will see by the treasurer's accounts
was practically all expended. Only a
small b-ilan u rem lined on hand. The
cost of operating the hospital for the
year was in round figures $14,000.
The balance of rooeipts was expended
on building and furuiture accounts.
The steady increase of expenditure
speaks for itself as to tho growing
needs of increased hospital uoccmmo-
dation in this section. I might remark that this hospital is not, I ronton
fairly at all times bv tbe outlying
towns. Although there nre other
hospitnls in the district, we tiud that
there is a groit tendency to send
pauper patients, who are liable to bo
tedious cases, from all sections to this
hospital���in some cases even lisking
the lives cf the patients. One very
unfortunae case happened lately. A
patient named Bradley was sent from
New Denver to this hospital suffering
from a severe attack of typhoid fever
aud Cied shortly after admittuco. I
understand that there are two institutions in that section that have ar-
rangemento to receive government aid
to treat such cases,when tho necessary
authority ean be obtained lo admit
them. This is a matter where the
governmont should issue proper instructions. I mention this . as yonr
diieetorsfoel that eaoh section should,
as far as possible, look aftor its indigent sick.
We have treated duriug the year 11(17
patiouts, discharged MS, died 17, remaining 22.
The number of days tieatmont
7,210, average number of patients
treated per diein 10.77, average cost of
maintenance per capita per diem
81.0027.
With reference to tho cost of main"
tenanco, I might say that the now
cottage, although a very useful building���owing to its not boing connected
to the main building, is a very serious
cause of extra expense���necessitating
at least two extra nurses and an extra
expenso of practically $1,000 per
annum.
The staff employed during Ibe year
comprises: House physician, throo
trained nurses, four probationers, one
janitor, and two cooks.
The growth of tbo district forces
upon us the great need of a new wing
to the main hospital. This certainly
will nave to be the aim of tbo board
r tho future. Last year tbe grounds
were fenced and other improvements
made.
I   would   placo   the   assets  of  the
society as   follows:     Main   building,
cottage and land, $18,0S0;   equipment
jand furniture, 82,000.     Total, 820,000
Taking tho operation   for   the   year I
on the whole, I think that your directors are to be congratulated in having
, beon able to make both   ends  meet���u
HOSpllal   Board   MeetS   Extra I very difficult matter in public institu-
, tion of this kind.     All   of   which   is
| respeotfully submitted.

Toronto,Mnreli 11.���The cily council
laat night by a voto of 22 to 2 voted
against giving a contract for street
paving to a Chicago firm, because it
was au American firm, despito the faot
that the firm's tender was the   lowest.
Mr. Marter, Conservative, gave a
new turn to the prohibition question
in the leigslature last night by proposing that the plebiscito be taken at
the general election as to whether the
people desired the submission of tbe
probibition bill to tbe referendum.
If the people voted against submission
there would be no necessity for a
separate vote on a separate day at
great cost.
The premior said that the matter
might be considered before the bill
came up again.

largely attended special meeting of
the board of trado held this aiternoon
a strong resolution urging the provincial government to grant immediately, as a measure of justice, Wo
representatives to the Boundary district in the provincial legislature

and rapidly increasing population of
the district and its enormous contributions to the provincial revenue.

Hearty Reception of Prince Henry
Augurs Well For Good Feeling,
Berlin, March 11.���The semi-official
North German Gazette, commenting
this evening on the departure of
Princo Henry of Prussia from tbe
United States referred iu the warmest
terms to the generous hospitality and
unvarying courtesy and good will extended to the Emperor's representative
and continued : In the strengthening
of tbe traditional friendly relations
between the two grent powerful and
progressive nations, in the renewal of
the old confidence, we couple in our
thoughts with gratitudo the ooutless
American men and women who everywhere gave Prince Henry . joyful
welcome coming from sincere hearts.
It is just these perlectly spontaneous
demonstrations of friendship, coming
trom all classes of a proud people,
that give us confidence tbat the good
feeling which has been engendered
and manifested both here and over
thers by the visit to the land of
George Washington, will continue is
influence on the relations between
the German empire and the United
States politically untroubled as they
are in any way, to the advantages of
both peoples.

Protest to President They Want Only
Civilized Warfare.
Washington, March 11.���C. H. Wcs-
sels and A. D. Wolmarans, tlie Boer
delegates in the United States, had a
talk with President Roosevelt today,
at the conclusion of thc cabinet meet-
ing. They called to pay their respects
and to say good byo, as thoy will
ltave for Europe on tho 29th.
During thc oouise of their interview
thoy said tnat theyy desired to pirtio-
ulaily make known to the President
that they did not ask for, desire or
expect intervention on the part of this
or any other country. What they
��ant and what was laid before thc
American government, Mr. Wessels
said, was a request that civilized war-
faro be insured in South Africa.
President Kruger is not seeking intervention in Europe, be ooneluiled, and
all stories of tbat kind may be denied
whenever tbey are heard. The Boon-
have nothing to lose ano all to gain
by keeping up this fighting. They
may call it guerilla war if they want,
but it ia at least human warfare
Victoria, March 11.���John .lames,
John Johnson and Albert Fan I ker,
believed to bo sailors from a deep
wnter ship in Royal roads, were
arrested Yesterday for impersonation,
at the instance of J, H Lawson and
Dr. Jones, two of Ilodwell's scrutineers. The chargo against Fuulkor
was diopped but the other two were
up tolay. the first charged with impersonation and the other with oon-
spiring to impersonate. The charge
wns remanded till Friday.
The official recount of the election
closed at noon today, the return
being: Prior, 1,530; Hodnell, 1,484,
majority for Prior, 55.
The house toduy continued tho discussion of the speech from the throne
after Col. Prior had been introduced
by Dunsmuir and Wells amid loud
beers. Hunter spoke for the government and Curtis replied at length,
slating the Martinites for ineonsisi-
ency, attacking the premier's position
in selling his railway, while still
premier, to the Canada Northern, and
declaring in favor of the referendum
before any valuable concessions are
made by the government, as well as
thu referendum on whether the Coast-
Kootenay road be undertaken as a
government oi a competitive railway.
He submitted an amendment to the
address declaring the Canada Northern terms unsatisfactory, while declaring for the railway; declaring for a
line to the north end of Vancouver
island with a branch to Alberni with
control of rates, tor immediate work
on the Coast-Kootenay line, and for
tho re-enactment of anti-Oriental
legislation.
Tho session olosed in unseemly recriminations over alleged advances
made by the present opposition
through Curtis last session to the old
opposition to defeat the government.
Curtis denied doing anything dishonorable and McPhillips, Garden,
Helmcken, Murphy, Fulton, Greon,
llayward denied boing concerned in
any conspiracy.
Prince Konoye, president of the
Japanese house of peers, recently gave
the Japan Advertiser an interview on
the' Manchurian question. As the
head of the National Union league
and founder of the Toyo, edited
weekly under the style of too Kipon
Shu Ho.he hns taken a prominent part
in a protest against Russia's territorial plans on Chinese soil.
Japan wiil never consent to a Russian Mauchuria, said the princo. On
this point the government is absolutely determined. Nor should wc
hesitate to tako recourse to armed
remonstrance, were Russia to continue
in her recent semi-defiant attitude.
We havo tie sympathy of both the
United States and Great Britain in
this matter, and know what wo are
doing. Japan has no objection whatever to Russia's leasing Port Aithur.
It does not, and would not, in any
way menace our interests. As far as
tho trans-Manchurian railway, wo
regard its construction with lively
satisfaction. In that it will unquestionably serve to open now fields Iji
foreign industrial and commercial
undertakings.
But Russia would have to muintain
troops along the nil 1 wny in order to
keep it from any attack on the part of
tho natives. Would Japan object to
Russian troops in Manchuria fcr tllis
purposo? Not at all. Where the presence of such troops is necessitated, as
is the case with the railway, Japan
would never objeot to their presence,
but Russia's great territorial army on
Chinese soil must be withdrawn
beyond the frontier and that without
further loss of time.
That province must be kept entirely
under Chinese control, not only because of its mineral and other wealth,
but also as being the birth place of
the present Chinese dynasty Con-
tinned occupation of any foreign
power whatever would mean ine
downfall of the   present   dynasty and
subsequent revolution and anarchy,
I am convinced that the tenure of
Manchuna as a Chinese Btate ls positively necessary to the maintenance
nnd continuance of the present Chinese
government.
What is thought in Japan of the
attitude taken by the United States in
this connection, was asked.
It is viewed wilh gratitude and
respect. The United Stales has fiom
tho first, insisted on the open door
policy for nil nations, nnil a Russian
Manchuria would be directly opposed
to such a policy. We have implicit
confidence ill the bona fides of the
United States in this matter ns in
others, and are persuaded thnt the
United States will back ni up in the
stand we huve taken. Tho United
States is, we hold, the one absolutely
unselfish and strictly just power. We
have had frequent proofs of tbe correctness of this view.

Fred Lowden Perishes and Chris Sher-
beit Frostbitten on Achilles Group.
A distressing accident occurred a
short distance above the Mollie Gibson
mino on March 8, news of which
reached tho oity only yesterday. Fred
Lowden and CLris Sherbert went up
to the Achilles group about four
weeks ago to do development work on
those claims and tho two wero living
in a cabin. This property is reached
from the Mollie Gibson mines by a
tiail about 4,000 feet in length and at
this season of the year none pass that
way.
From the Information that was sent
to Nelson yesterday by telephone it
appears that on Saturday night last a
snow slide oame down burying the
cabin in which the two mon were
under several feet of snow. Lowden
was pinned in by the snow and
smothered and his companion never
afterwards knew exactly what happened to him. Sherbert after desperate efforts succeeded after 3(1 hours
work in getting freo from the collapsed cabin aud with difficulty mado
the best progr.ss he could, half walking and half crawling, toward the
Mollie Gibson mine, shouting for help
as ne went. Tho men at the mine
heard his cries, came to his assistance
and took him to tbo mine. He remained there till yesterdayjaftcrnoon
when he was taken to McGuire's
ranch by the mine people. In the
meantime they had gone to the cabin
where they dug out Lowden, who was
''ead, they could but surmise how
long. His remains were taken to the
mine nud then tr McGuire's with
Sherbert, The latter was rather
badly frozen about the hands and [oet.
On the news being telephoned to
Nelson, Dr. Hawkey and Provincial
Constable Young, went up to Mc-
Guiro's on tho stenmer' International
to render what, assistance they could
to the Injured man, and to learn the
facts of what bad ooourrod. Sherbert
was somewhat better when they got
there and be uud Lowden's remains
wore brought down late last night by
the steamer Halys.
Lowden was about -In yeais of age
and has been in Nelson since 1H02,
Ho has been prospector und miner
since, among the properties he has
discovered being the Copperhead group
on Crawford creek. Ho was not a
partn.'i- in tho Achilles but in this
instance was taking the place uf
another in doing some work on it. He
was a particularly muscular mnn, of
those sterling qualities tbat gained
bim the resepct of nil whu knew bim.
Ho waB a brother of Cliff Lowden.
formerly a member of the Nelson Fire
brigade.

London, Maroh IS.���Tbe Daily
Chronicle understands tbat Lord
Kitchener will bo relieved of much
administrative work in South Africa
to unable him to take thu field in
person and lend a large nn noted force
in nn endeavor to capture DeWet. The
Chronicle is also informed that when
he is released, General Methuen will

mand in South Africo. A casualty
list shows thnt four officers wero
killed and ten wounded, including
General .Mi-1hucn,dangerously.
At the cabinet meeting today it was
decided that the time bad not yet arrived for enforcing the drastic clauses
of tbe Crimes Act. For the present,
therefore, there will be no pioclama*
tion of tbe United Irish league. t The
government's now land bill will be
introduced next week in thc House of
Commons, by George Wyndham. the
chief secretary for Ireland, and it Is
understood that his view prescribed in
tbo cabinet that coercion should be
avoided as far as possible until it is
seen whether this bill will have tho
effect of tranquiliziim Ireland, that it
would be injudicious to revive the
recriiniuatioii about coercion at the
moment of introducing the new bill.

After the men refused tbo owners'
offer this afternoon, public opinion
strongly condemned tbem in view of
the concessions accorded by the owners. Somo crews then withdrew from
the majority and decided to accept
the owners' terms. The police
afforded these men protection and
enabled the owners and crews to reach
the ships in spite of the threatening
overtures of the strikers. In the
meanwhile tbe feeling had spread and
scores ot men joined the other ships.
The aggressive strikers bonrded these
vessels and drove tbe men ashore.
The steamer Aurora which was lying
in midstream secured enough men to
prevent the aggressive strikers from
coming on board Gradually contingents joined the other ships. Al.
length the committee of the strikers
seeing that tho situation was getting

MINIS0) AT DEPTH.
In the W'itwatersrand in South
Africa some deep boring* have recent
ly been made. The Mouth African, a
paper published there says: "In our
issue of August 10 of last year we
recorded thc striking of the main reef
series by a diamond diill at a depth
of 4,825 feet, and gave many interesting details. In the second borehole
to tbo west the main reef was subsequently encountered at a depth of
4,842 feet, thus confirming tbe con
clusiou based on the success of the
first borehole that the whole forma
tion continues to a depth far beyond
that calculated on till the diamond
drill ended the controversy. After
striking the reef iu the second boro-
hole too work was continued to a
depth of 5,083 feet, doubtless with
the object of comparing the formation
underlying tho main reef sories at
this point witn that cut in No. 1
borehole."
On this continent the miners are
working at the great depth reached by
tbe diamond drill in Suuth Africa,
ln ihe Calumet and Becla in Michigan miners are taking out ore from
a mile below the surface and making
a prollt op it. The Yellow Jacket
���shnft in Virginia City, Nevada, is down
3,220 feet aud thoro is another mine
on the same lode that pierces the
bowels of the earth 3.3Q1) feet. The
War Eagle shall in the Rossland camp
ls dowu about 1,41)0 feet. The Last
Chance tunnel taps the ledge at a
vertical depth of 1,000 foet. There
should be no insuperable difficulties
experienced in .South Africa iu mining at the depth of practically a mile
which is about thc distance reached
downward by tbo diamond drill.
There is always an increase iu heat
with depth, but this increase is not
always the same. Different degrees
of neat are experienced in different
localities. The miners in the .'uluinet
and Ilecla work a mile below tho
Miliar,, without any great discomfort,
It iB true theio ia considerable heat
but it is not as great as it is on the
C-jmstock lode ut 3,000 foet. There
the beat is so intense that it is almost
unbearable. The formation on the
Comstoek seems to slake out when exposed to tho combined action of air
and wntor like lime under tho inllu-
enco of the same elements and the
water coming from tbo rock steams
with heat as it is emitted. Minors
operating machine drills in some of
the hotter drifts could only work
fifteen minutes at u time and then
were compel led to go to u less heated
portion of the mine to cool olf. Il
was like a continuous Turkish bath.
It took three sets of mou to operate
one machine drill ou n s'tiift, as while
one set was working tho other two
were cooling oil' and icstiug from tho
extioiue exhaustion oiUBBd by working  iu  so  hot  an  atmosphere.   In
addition to this the wnter came iuto
{he workings in large quantities and
the coi-t of pumping was large. The
lodo was rich at 11,000 foet. but the
costs of keeping thc water out and of
mining were so great tlmt tho lodo
Was finally abandoned until recently
when cheap powor wns put into ui.e
for uwatering purposes, bnt the success so far attained bus not been very
great. In the Calumet and lleala the
heat is not so great and the volume of
water is uot large and for these
reasons tbe mines can be worked at a
prollt for :.\000 feet deeper than is the
case on tho Comstoek.
In Mouth Africa if the conditions
are found favorable at the depth
reached by the diaonicd diill there is
no ffiaSOU why they cannot be operated down to 5,500 feet and perhaps
at considerably below that point.
When compared with the Calumot
and Ilecla the depths reached in the
Kootenays aro small, and show that
wc have but little moro thnn got outside   of   thc   zone   of   surface distur-i
bauces in our deepest mines. It ia the
opinion of ruining experts that the
mines of the Kossiand camp can be
operated at a profit to at least a depth
ol 5,500 feet. There is but little ~ater
and the increase in the heat as tho
shafts are driven down is very small.
In some of thc Boundary and Slocan
mines the same conditions prevail,
and it is probable that tbey can be
operated to similar depths. It will
take many years yet, however, before
any ol tbe mines of the province will
have shifts which stretch from the
surface iuto the bosom of Mother
Karth ior a distance of a mile.
V1C10U1A ELECTION.
The election of Hon. E. G. Frior,
minister of mines in tho Dunsmuir
government, to the seat in^tlie vacant
Victoria riding, is considerable of a
disappointment to those who wished
to see the defeat of the present ministry. The return of E. V. Ilodwell
would, it is certain, have been of
material aid in giving stability to the
government and in restoring the lost
prestige of the provinco. There is not
so muoh opposition in the interior to
Col. Prior individually as there is
because of the fact that he is a part
and parcel of the discredited Dunsmuir government.
Mr. Dunsmuir and his colleagues
recognized the fact most clearly that
they were tottering to a fall and
unless Col. Prior was elected that
their cause was hopelessly lost.
Therefore lhe premier, the members of
the cabinet and those supporting the
government strained every nerve to
elect Col. Prior and won by a rather
narrow majority. Had the election
been conducted on normal lines without tbe lease of life,of the ministry
being dependent upon its outoome
there ia no doubt whatever Mr. Ilodwell would have won. He is an able,
popular and patriotic citizen who
earnestly desires to see the commonwealth prosperous aud had he been
elected ho would have done a great
deal towards giving tbe country
what it neons, a restoration ol its
former prosperity.
However, Col. Prior is elected and
thereby the government has secured a
short renewal of the lease of life, as
Col. Prior, being a veteran politician
and withal a man of considerable
popularity, may be able to induce
some of the wavering legislators to
become for n brief period the supporters of tho government. The government, however has no attributes
that will insure its longevity.
Tbe bad condition ol affairs in the
present bouse and in two or three that
preceded it must lead all to the conclusion that there is something radically wrong when such a deporable
stato attains for so long a period. The
evils aio due to the absence of party
lines. As the members are at present
elected they owe no allegiance to
party and are free and unplodgcd aud
not subject to party discipline and
they feel at liberty to do as their
fancy dictates and the result is kuown
to all. It makes tbu house a mere
meeting place for fighting out personal feuds and public business is
wol'ully neglected.
With party lines and party discipline each member could be pledged
to carry out certain principles, and
would bo amenable to party discipline
and knowing this, would be more
anxious than at preseut to perform
effective work for tho constituents.
The result would be less quarreling,
mote woik and thought given to legislation aud in a short time there
would be a government in tile saddle
in whicb the people of the province
ns well as the investors iu the financial
centers of tho world would have the
utmost confidence. Then capital
would pour in from all sides for investment and this would cause a
resumption of the prospetity which
characterized the province four or fivo
years since. The introduction of
party linos cannot be much longer
delayed, and that it would bring
about a much hotter condition of
affairs than at present attains is
certain.

ent importance to entitle it to n sepnr-
ate representative. Tho Associated
boards of trado made several mistakes
in policy, as shown in the resolutions
adopted, and not the leust of them
is the one requesting but one representative for the Uoundary. Why did
not the Uoundary delegates look nftor
their own interests more closely?
They had othor tlsh to fry and apparently in their eagerness to havo them
well cooked they seemed to have overlooked a mattur of great Importance
to the poople whom they were sent to
represent. It is important, in view
of some of the mining legislation
already on the statute books and also
whon some of the legislation recommended by the associated boards of
trade Is considered, that tbu mining

BOUNDARY REPRESENTATION.
Editor Miner,���I was very much
surprised to seo that at the meeting of
tbe Associated boards of trade at
Kaslo, a resolution was passed asking
that the Boundary country be givm
but one representative in the leca
legislature.
I have, ever since I have been in
the legislature, been advocating that
the Kottle River Alining division,with
the possible addition of territory ex
tending to Lake Ouanagan, be given a
representative; also that the Grand
Forks Mining division be given a
representative.
There is no doubt at all that each
of these rapidly growing divisions
should have representation in tbe
Douse wbea a redistribution bill is
brought down ; and it is too bad that
the delegates to tho Associated boards
from these divisions should have permitted any such resolution as that
whioh passed to come beforo the Associated boards.
I hope that the press will start a
campaign Ior two representatives for
the Boundary oountry, and strengthen
my hands in demanding what is unquestionably tho right of that district,
ou account of population, rapid
growth, and large mining and commercial interosts. I am, your faithfully, SMITH CURTIS.

BREAD DYSPEPSIA
White Bread Makes Trouble With Some
People,
Loading up with whito bread and
starchy ci-roals is quite suie to ultimately bring oil some disorder of the
bowels, and is frequently tho cause of
appendicitis.
The starches aro uot digested in the
upper stomaoh but aro treated in the
duodonum and from thero on down
through tlio whole length of the
bowels. Consequently, if too muoh
starchy food is usod, particularly
white bread, trouble is likely to set
up. White broad does not contain the
diastatie prinoiples which nature
placed in the wheat berry to help
digest starch, but the white flcur
miller leaves that part out.
Grape-Nuts Breakfast Food was perfected purposely to supply the starch
���of the cereals and the other parts
intended by Nature for use, and presents tbem to the body in a form that
will easily be digested. In fact the;
are predigested by a natural nieanB
during the process of manufacture, so
that one can get all the energy aud
value from that sort of food without
overloading the organs.
A man from Brantford, Out., says:
"For the first twentj years ol my life
I lived out of doors, thou I took up
my present employment, which is
indoors, and requires tho exorcise of
the brain rather than the body.
Gradually a languid feeling took
possession of me, which developed into
dyspopsia and later into constipation.
These conditions continued for several years in spite of pills and laxatives without number. After a time I
began to suffer from great lack ot
vitality and from time to time with
cramns in the bowels wbich usually
laid nio up for three or four days.
Finally the physician discovered that
1 was on the point of appendicitis
After one ol these severe attacks,
about six mouths ago, a neighbor
brought in part of a package of Grape-
Nut t" try, and 1 noticed good results
from the flrst, and havo continued to
use the Food in place of white bread
una ceroal I formerly usod.
I have gained eousiderubly in
weight, feel much better than I have
in years, my complexion has cleared
up, digestion is good, and I have not
had a cramp since starting; but more
important than all else, I notico a
distinct clearness of miud subtained
by an energy and nerve force that I
have not known before.
1 havo learned an exceedingly valuable Icsbon in living aud will not.
hereafter, load myself down with food
requiting too muoh bulk to supply a
sufllciout amount of nourishment us I
used to. This lesson in moderation
in diet, aud knowing how to select
proper food is wortli everything to

(I. 0. Buchanan Thinks Province Now
Learning in Experience's Schcol.
G. O. Buchanan, of Kaslo, was iu
the city yesterday previous to leaving
for Oltawa as one of the three delegates who were appointed to present
to the Dominion government the
views of the Associated boards of
trace. The other delegates are James
Cronin, of Moyie, and W.li.Aldridge,
of the Trail smelter. Speaking of the
subjects that would he discussed with
the ministry, Mr. Buchanan mentioned tlie readjustment of tho bounty
on the refining of lead, the imposition of a duty on lead products and
the dividing of tho riding of Vale-
Kootenay-Caiiboo into two ridings to
be diyided by the Columbia river,
and the holding of an election at an
early date so that that portion of tbe
country might nave representation to
wbich it is eutitled before the time of
the next general election,
Theso matters have been discussed
fully at the convention of the boards
and he thought that something would
be done. The tone of the mine operators in the Slocan was more hopeful
than in times'past and if they got just
a little more for their lead there
would be a very large output. Owing
to the high duty on lead shipped into
the United States tho advantages of
that market cannot be procured for
the Canadian mines and when the
lead is sold in England or China it
would come into competition with the
cheapest lead produced anywhtre in
the world.
The larger mines of the Slocan, Mr.
Buchanan said, were showing up well
with development so that there was no
fault with tbe country. Among those
making the beet showing were the
Rambler-Cariboo wbich looked likely
to become the largsst mine of the
Slocan,or, at least,would be surpassed
Hy only the Slocan Star. Tlie Ruth
was again ready to send out oie and
other mines were looking good
Recently there have been some slides.
On Saturday last Mr. Buchanan added
everything came down that was loose
and in consequence the roads were
bad and it was likely that shipments
would be low for some time to come.
Speaking of the Victoria election
Mr. Buchanan was of the opinion that
tho people of this province had not yet
had enough of the non-descript governments that it has had for the past
few years and he thought that after
the people had worried along
with tne same state of affairs for a
few years moro, they would be in the
humor to be more careful as to the
qualifications oi the men who were
sent to the legislature. For his part
he did not look for much change from
the old condition of affairs as the
result of thc election in Victoria.

greeted   by a bumper house last evening, the opera houes being crowded to
the doors.     The   company  had   been
heralded as an excellent one   and  tho
theatre  goers were   not   disappointed
for with the exception of  the opening
farce, "Peek's Bad Boy, Alias Johnny
Riley" which was a shade long, there
was   not   a   dull   number on the programme, and the audience  manifested
its appieciation iu no uncertain   way.
The   name   comie   players is no misnomer   so far as it ooncerns this company.      Miss   Nellie Goodwin in  her
songs and dances was well appreciated.
Bert Wiggin and Fanny Wiggin   wore
abovo the average.   The former being
an eccentric and humorous Irish comc-
diat and the later   an   artistic   vocalist.   Tho two little troubadours gnv e
the prison scene from   "II Trovatore"
very well, considering  tlieir age,   and
were   oorapelled   to   respond   to   two
encores.    George and   Lizzie   Bird   in
their   trip   to a Chinese   theatre  gavo
very clever   Imitations   uf  Mongolian
histronics and vocalisms   and brought
down tbe bouse.     Tbe Manhattan trio
rendered several   songs in an   artistic
manner and won tbe good will   of the
audience.      Ihe   Royal    Marionettes
proved   interesting   and   the  dancing
skeleton whose arms, legs and  skull,
insistud     on   separating    thcmsolvea
from the other portions   of the   frame
created quite a sensation.     "German-
town on the lludsun,"   In which  the
Tyrolean   Warblers  gave vocal selections  and   the   little   troubadours   a
cake walk, was one of the   features of
the show.      The  singing of the Tyrolean Warblers was   superb.     Tonight
the   company   gives   its farewell performance,   and   theio   will bo a complete change of programme.
