OPPOSED TO
SCHOOL BILL
The City Council Places Itself
On Record to That
Effect.
Provision Should Be Made for
Council Representation on
School Board.
Mayor Fletcher has taken action in
the direction of urging the legislature
not to take hasty action in the matter
of passing school legislation. Apparently the Nelson city council is opposed to. the . school bill in its present
form, and when the influence of the
council is cast in with that of the other .cities which are protesting against
the proposed measure, the government
is likely to bi induced to make the
changes urged. The leading objectionable feature In the bill as brought
in Ib that which provides that the
school board shall be entirely independent of the city couneil, and thai
the latter board will have to supply
whatever funds are legally requisitioned by the school trustees. There
are minor objections, but this is the
point on which the various delegations are urging the government to
go alow, Vancouver has a strong
delegation at the capital in opposition
to the measure, and Rossland has sent
Mayor Lalonde, two aldermen and the
c'.ty solicitor down to exert their Influence In opposition also. As Mr.
Houston had left the capital for Nelson a day or two ago, Mayor Fletcher
took council with Alderman Hamilton, chairman of finance, and wired
Mayor Lalonde to represent NelBon*
also, and to urgtv on the government
on behalf of the Nelson council that
no hasty legislation on school matters
Bhould be passed.
In referring to 'he matter after last
night's counul meeting, Mayor Fletcher said to a knot of councillors and
others: 'The appointment of a board
of school trustees to be elected by the
ratepayers and to be independent of
the city concil Is likely to cause trouble, and it would be a much better
Idea if the bill was amended so that
two or three members of the city
couneil would be school trustees as
well. This would enable the trustee
board to keep in close touch with the
couneil and the matter of arranging
the finances of both corporations
would be simplified. One can readily
understand that were the trustees out
of touch with the council, tbey
might, in their desire to increase the
usefulness and scope of the city's educational facilities, requisition for a
sum of money for which a debenture
issue, would be required at a time
When the council was badly in want
of funda for other matters affecting
tb* general Interests of the city much
more closely. With the bill as proposed the council wonld havo no option other than to issue the debentures and it might then be an extremely diffloult matter for the corporation to dispose of the securities.
Another point in which the bill is
faulty, is in connection with the
clause which provides that the present' trustees shall serve out their
terms of office before the bill takes
effect as to the election of trustees by
the citizens. If the bill is to become
lavf there should be a clean sweep,
particularly as the duties of the
trustees would be very materially Increased and the gentlemen who have
undertaken the positions under existing circumstances might not be willing to serve under the amended conditions. The ti'iat tenure. Is, in my
opii>ion,lliat provision should be made
lo nave the council represented on
the school boaid. This would tend to
prevent the Bchool board from erring
in the direction of excessive expenditure.and as the aldermen are equally
responsible to the electors, the result achieved would be the same,"
Alderman Hamilton expressed himself as dubious on the point of the
prop used school legislation, Ills opinion was that the government should
not. take action without carefully considering the possible effect of the bill.
Now that the city has east its lot
as opposed to the school hill as it
stands at present before the house,
the. disposition of the act will lie
watched with keen interest.

GREAT BRITAIN'S ANSWER
N_LSQNaV British Columbia, Tuesday,  March 12, 1901.
Eleventh  Year
*2�� MR. JAPFRAY
INTERVIEWED
WILL     NOT      ACCEPT     SENATE
AMENDMENTS OF HAY-PA UNCE-
FOTE TREATY.
NOTHING IN  THE   NATURE OF A
COUNTER PROPOSITION
IS MADE.
Washington, March 11.���The long
expected answer from the British
government to the state department's
comumnication reciting tba action of
the senate upon the Hay-Pauncefote
treaty, was returned at noon today.
Lord Paunccfote, the British ambass-
udor,already had acquainted Secretary
Hay with the fact that he had received a communication from his government on the subject, and.it is believed
it has been in his poseBBion for several days. Lord Paunccfote came to
the state department at noon by appointment.
He. brought the answer with him
anil read it to Secretary Hay. It was
an Instruction from Lord Lansdowne,
the British minister of foreign
affairs, to Lord Paunccfote, and of
this instruction he left a copy with
Secretary Hay. The secretary and the
ambassador were closeted for half an
hour. At the conclusion of the conference it was stated that the Instruction to Lord Pauncefote was to notify
the government of the United States
that the British government did not
see^its way clear to tho acceptance of
the amendments.
These amendments were, treated in
detail at k.iiiio length, in argumentative fashion, the purpose of the British government being to show tbat it
had sound reason for declining to accept them. After disposing of the de-
talls, the note concluded with an ex-,
preBslon of regret that such a course
had been forced upon the British government. There waR nothing in the
nature of a counter proposition nor
was an opening left for further action
by tbe _Britlsh government. Is was
stated thut if there was to be a further attempt to amend the Clayton-Bui-
wer treaty so as to authorize the United States to constiuct a waterway
across the isthmus, then It was for
the United States to make the overtures. The British government simply dropped the matter at this   point.
Secretary Hay carried the communication to the White House to talk
with the president as to the future
action of the department. The Impression prevails that there will be 1:0
immediate action looking toward the
negotiation of a treaty.
Vice-President of the Coal Co.
Talks to the News-
Advertiser.
Explains the Position of Hts
People in the Great
Controversy.
Mr. Robert Jaffray, vice-president
of the Crow!* Nest Ooal company, arrived in Vancouver on Thursday. In
an interview with a News-Advertiser
reporter he gave a most e .iphatic denial to the report that President Hill
of the Great Northern railway had secured an Interest in the coal company
or lands. The report, Mr. Jaffray
stated, was utterly false, and had
probably been circulated by those
opposed to a line being built from the
boundary, which would naturally introduce somo competition in railway
matters generally.
Questioned respecting the alleged inability of the company to supply the
local demand for fuel, Mr. Jaffray
stated that those opposing the grant -
ing ot tbe railway charter had endeavored to create this impression. The
company's output was between 1,400
and 1,500 tons per day, which was
considerably in excess of the British
Columbia demand. It was true that
it had been taking coke from the Trail
smelter for the Greenwood one, but
that was owing to the former having
been over-stocked, and it still held a
large surplus. The shortage that was
experienced for a short time was occasioned by the difficulty of securing
the required machinery and the delay
of the contractors in shipping same.
When the orders foi tbe machinery
were placed, great difficulty was experienced in getting any of the ironworks to a-cept the contract which
was eventually placed with a firm in
Nova Scotia. Instead of filling the
order in July or August last, they
were six-months late in shipping the
machinery. In the meantime the one
engine tbe coal company had in use
was overtaxed and broke down, which
eauaed a temporary inconvenience.
The capacity today was over 1,400
tons dally; they expected shortly to
double that and if the Great Northern
extension were built their output
would probably be increased to
6,000 TONS
per day by the time of its completion,
The industry was a most important
one for British Columbia, as might be
understood, when it was stated that
BOO men were on the present pay-roll,
with the output at between 1,400 and
1,500 tona per day. The increase in
the pay roll and tbe Influence of the
Industry upon the district when the
output waa increased to 0,ooo tons pet
day might be estimated from the number of men at present employed.
The majority of the directors of the
company held large Interests in British Columbia, outside of the coal property, and were anxious to nee the
province prosper and for their coal
and.coke business alone it was to their
interests to help.in securing activity
in the business and the prosperity of
the province. The Inference to be
taken from the reports sent out that
they were assisting in aiming a
blow at British Columbia mining and
smelting was tberetoie absurd, and
Mr. Jaffray was Inclined to believe
that the reports were almost malicious
In their Intent.
The company was anxious to seoure
a permanent market for its coal and
coke, to warrant It extending the
works aa was proposed. The British
Columbia market was at present neither very large nor reliable and if anything should happen to stop the mining Industry in this province, as had
occurred in the past, if the coal
company had no other outlet, it would
mean closing down its mines, etc.,
which would bo
ALMOST A DISASTER
to that portion of British Columbia,
as well as to tbe company. Tbe experienced workmen that the company
bad brought lu to operate the mines,
etc, wpnlil scatter all over tho place
and when conditions Improved and
the company wished to open up the
works , again, great difficulty would
necessarily be experienced in getting
the men oaok or replacing them,' For
these reasons a permanent market
was desirable. On the other hand a
good home market .was more beneficial than a foreign one, where they
had to meet the expense of transportation and, at any moment, rates might
be increased and obstructive legislation and prohibitive measures introduced. A good home market was far
preferable to having to find one
abroad, but where they had to adopt
the latter course, and it caused so
large an increase in the number of
men employed, pay-roll, etc., and did
not cause the local sppply to be cut
off then the province reaped the benefit. What British Columbia mostly
needed was capital ��� and labor and
every assistance should he given to
those endeavoring to secure these for
it. Referring to the pioposed V., V.
A E. railway and the large coal areas
it would aid in opening up, Mr.
Jaffray remarked that what would assist in developing and opening up the
province would assist those interested
in the province. He1 was not so narrow-minded as to wish to see development retarded because it would create
competition in coal. His company
should be able to produce coil as
cheap as anyone and it should not fear
competition which Was in reality the
life of trade. The greater the development of the province the larger tbe
market. Mr. Jaffray will remain on
the coast some eight or ten days, and
expects to return via the southern
route as lui wishes to- see some properties in which he is. Interested I in
Camp . McKinney and in the Greenwood camp..
On   the   day   following    that    on
which the  above appeared, tbe News-
Advertiser published the following:
To the Editor of the News-Advertiser:
Sir.���I regret that in yotfr very excellent report ot your Interview with
me there has been a misunderstanding
with reference to the relation of the
coal company and J. J. Hill. We
have stated explicitly what our connection is with Mr. Hill namely, that he
haB purchased shares In the com.
pany to a limited extent. He has
not at any time proposed or endeavored to buy the controlling interest in
it. Throughout the negotiations Mr.
Hill has not only shown no desire to
control the coal company, but haB asserted that the greatest success of the
enterprise must be Its continuance under Canadian control. In any event
tha Canadians'have made sure that tbe
control will not pass from them.
The question of the diversion of
the coke is best put right by quoting
in full a telegram from our accountant,. Mr. C. T. Thompson, at the
mines, Fernie, B. C, to the effect:
"Telegraphic despatch in Nelson Miner, Febiuary 27th, re diversion thirty
cars coke to Greenwood smeltei absolutely misleading. Find Trail overstocked with coke. They *ave. arranged with Greenwood smelter to relieve
them of twenty cars which will give
latter one thousand tons surplus.''
Your   Insertion of .the above.correc-
tton will much oblige.   Yours.,truly,
ROBERT JAFFHAY.

Blocmfonteln, March 10.��� General
Dewet. Is reported to be moving northward steadily at the rate of 25 miles a
day, with a view of crossing the railway to the eastward. He should,now
be west of Kroonstadt. Several small
commandos are in possession of the
south eastern portion of the Orange

(t is Impossible not to be struck
with the fact that a gieat portion of
the former enemies of (heat. Britain,
in South Africa now frankly throw
in their lot with the Hritish.
Brandfort, Kroonstadt and Blocmfonteln companies of ex-burghers are
now bring armed against the Doers.
They state their object Is not to operate against their former comrades, but
to defend their homes and property
against marauding bands.
Every town in the Free Stato occupied by the Britisli will soon become a
center of Hritish influence, extending a long distance in their vicinity.
Over 13,000 refugees are now within
the British lines, and many of them
demand arms and permission to take
the field. If their requests be granted, it will be easy to get 2,000 ex-burghers enrolled on the British sldo.

Retort���In Legislative Halls.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Victoria, Maroh 11.���There were
three debates in the house today in all
of which the debating talent of the
opposition showed possibly to greater
advantage than that of the government. Hawtbornthwaito, labor representative, from Nanaimo, moved the
second reading of tlie bill to provide
for an oxaminaton by a board, of miners working below ground for competency. He made a capital speech and
caught tbe ear of the house more
effectually than his predecessor, Ralph
Smith, lie was frequently interrupted by Premier Dunsmuir and finally,
while Hawthornthwaite was drawing
a contrast between the luxurious furnishings of the chamber and the dangerous interior of mines where his
constituents worked, the premier
said: "I would rather be there than
here." Hawthornthwaite Immediately, retorted I "There are hundreds of
miners III the province who heartily
wish you were."
Tbe other debate aiou; over Martin's
request that Ebert's bill respecting
the province's right to collect certain
royalties on railway land grants he
laid over till Interested parties lie
heard. Point was given to his argument by the reception, while be was
speaking by Smith Curtis of a telegram from A. 11, McNeill Haying he
would oppose the hill on buhulf of the
Nelson A Foil. Hheppaid, Tba government finally consented to allow the
matter to stand.
Martin also made an attack on the
government for dismissing Tlncko and
McLean, notaries public, on the
mainland, supposedly for issuing
fraudulent naturalization papers on
Japs, but without assigning reasons.
During the latter debate Eberts said
that while at Ottawa he had urged the
minister of justice to amend tlie law
so that where papers had been obtained fraudulently they could be abrogated by a judge and he believed the step
would be taken.
Chris Foley Is here today with the
Chinese commission. Sittings commence on Wednesday.
Tho Chinese reform association for

(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Winnipeg, March 11.���The perfect
combination, splendid stick work and
magnificent generalship of the Montreal Shamrocks proved for the third
tune this season to be of no avail
against the lightning speed of the forwards and stonewall resistance of the
defence of the Winnipeg Victorias.
When the final bell rang the ex-cham-
pious of the world were found to be
shut out with a score of 4 goals to   0.
The game was played tonight on
Bticny ice in the presence of 3,700 speo
tutors and was notable for the clean
play of both teams. The Vies replaced Ham, the captain of the team,
with Oidham, who at center forward
was the star of the evening and was
directly accountable for all the four
games scored, two of which he secured off his own stick while Wood and
Grlngas each secured one off his splendid rushes. The phenomenal work of
the Flett brothers on the defence was
remarkable and that the Shamrock
forwards never once broke through
speuks volumes tor their work.
The visitors played their usual superb game but never were in It for
speed with their opponents. Trihey
was closely marked down and could
not get away while Scanlan and Fat-
rell usually got Into the fence before
they got far on their journeys. Cum
mlngs put up a . good game and deserves great credit. Wall and Tansey
fought doggedly and stood off rush
after rush. At half time the score
was 9 to 0, and the same number was
added in the last half by the home
team. W. McFarland, of the Wlnul-
pigi, made an elllclent referee.
At the conclusion of the game the
Victorias entertained tbe Shamrocks
at a banquet in the Queen's hotel.

RUSSIA IS AT
CHINA'S THROAT
Threatens Harder Terms Unless Its Wishes are
Agreed To.
An Appeal Is Made by China
to Some of the Rival
Powers.
London, March 11.���The Times, in
its second edition today, publishes a
dispatch from Shanghai dated March
11, saying: "It is reported upon
trustworthy authority that Hussia has
notified China that unless the Man-
churian convention is sigued at an
early date,she (Russia) will withdraw
tbe convention and substitute harder
teriUB in its place. Li Hung Chang
declared he is powerless to; resist and
has appealed to the United States,
Great Britain, Germany aud Japan to
intervene in China's behalf."
Considerable uneasiness is believed
to exist between the Yang Tse viceroys and Li Hung Chang in consequence of the extreme friction.
Pekin, March 11.���Companies "A"
and "B" of the Ninth United States
infantiy, have been notified that they
are to remain in China. It is believed that Major Robertson will command them. Many Americans hero
urge the legation to use its influence
to have at least two field guns and
enough artillerymen to work them
left.. They say that during the siege
these 1 guns would have been more
valuable than 200 armed men, and
that the necessity for their use is liable to occur again. The Germans report that in the recent engagement
near Pao Ting Fu, 250 Chinese were
killed and four magazine guns captured. There were no German losses.
Despite the report that Li Hung
Chang is seriously ill and that his life
hangs by a thiead, his physicians suy
that his condition is no worse than
that of any ordinary man in tbe same
circumstances and would not be dangerous except for his advanced age,
They are extremely hopeful of being
able to bring him around.
Pekin, March 11.���The question of
the quarters for American troops remaining in Pekin is still the subject
of discussion. Army men favor the
temple of agriculture as being
healthier.
COMES TO NELSON���
Referring to the departure from St.
Thomas, Ont., of Mr. John A. Fraser,
who comes to Nelson to assume a po��
sition in the office of J. Y. Griffin A
Co., the following appears In the St.

complimentary banquet tendered Mr.
John A. Fraser last night at the new
Iroqulos hotel was one of the most
pleasant affairs of the kind that have
been held here. John Is a St. Thomas

all his life, with the result that his
many excellent qualities uro so well
known that the young men of the
city could not let him go to Nelson,
II. C, next Tuesday morning, without

his usual ability, the tonst list and
programme, which was well responded to. In proposing tho toast of "Our
Guest." Mr. Wickett Included in his
remarks reference to the high esteem
In which Mr. Frnser's late father hud

THE END OF THE WAR.
The impression appears to begain-
ing ground among those most competent to express an opinion on the
subject, that the South African war
is rapidly drawing to a close and that
the end is within measurable distance.
It will go down in history as one of
the bitterest conflicts ever waged between civilized peoples. Ex-I'resident
Kruger said he would stagger humanity, and he did���particularly in respect to the white flag outrages and
his shameful treatment of his prisoners. The war was fruitful in surprises. No one dreamed previous to
the commencement of hostilities tbat
the Boers were so well provided with
arms and ammunition. The shrewd
est military observers were deceived.
Surprise was felt when General Uul-
ler, on being asked to take charge of
operations, demanded an army of 80,-
000 men. No one could understand
why he wanted such a large army to
conquer such a small people. But it
was soon shown that he had underestimated rather than overestimated the
requirements of the situation; for
from 80,000 the army was increased to 100,000, then to 300,000,
and so on, until, at the height
of the conflict, there were nearly
300,000 men in the field for Great
Britain. Buller had a tremendous
task. Possibly he made mistakes.
Who would not, if placed In- similar
circumstances? But he dame ont of
it with honor. Lord Roberts, who
succeeded him in command, fulfilled
expectations and lived up to his reputation in a brilliant fashion; but had
he taken hold of affairs when Buller
did he might not have made any better showing. Kitchener, perhaps, hus
proved somewhat of a disappointment
to those who looked for huge achievements by the hero of Khartoum ; but
It is hard to say wherein any general
could have displayed greater ability,
when the nature of the country and
the. extreme mobility of the enemy are
taken into consideration.
But the war will be memorable
chiefly for its having demonstrated to
all the world the absolute urity of
the Empire. The assistance rendered
by the colonies was timely and very
valuable. Canada played an important part. She sent some of the best
and bravest of her sons to the front
and that they covered themselves with
honor nnd glory all   the world knows.

THE I'AN-AMEKICAN EXPOSITION.
The name of C.   II.    Gibbons,   managing editor of the   Vancouver   Province, is mentioned in connection with
the commlssionership   of the province
at the Pan-Amri ii'iui   exposition to be
opened shortly at Buffalo.    Tho   government   could   hardly make a   wiser
choice.    Mr.    Gibbons   is one   of   tlie
ablest journalists   in western   Canada
and possesses all the ability'necessary
for the proper fulfillment   of   the duties of   a   commissioner.    While it is
not the   intention of the   province   to
make an exhibit, it is felt thut Britisli
Columbia   should    bo    represented   iu
soma way.    It   is  proposed to   utilize
the presence of   the   many   thousands
attracted to the exposition to interesting investors,   manufacturers and industrial   population   of  all   desliahlc
classes and   grades; to   establish   and
maintain in convenient   quarters during the   exposition   a   British Columbia oflice, well equipped with authoritative   matter   relating to Hritish Columbia in all Its various   characteiis-
tics���of the resources,   area,   climate,
fertility,   manufacturing    opportunities, forest  and   fishery extent, markets, etc., etc., such office being made
headquarters for   visitors   from   British Columbia   during the  exposition,
and a bureau   of   Information on   all
subjects with relation   to   British Columbia and the opportunities   it presents to all classes of people.    Another
suggestion is to have a comprehensive
and np-to-date supply   of   descriptive
printed matter together with an intelligently prepared collection of photo-
gratis, illustrative   of the various  resources and industries of the province,
latent   or   active,   and    the  methods
most suitable  for their   development.
The   commissioner   would   have    his
printed  matter    for  distribution   so
Rossland is apparently holding her
own very well���the latest cause for
elation on the part of the citizens being the announcement that tbe record
of ore shipments for all previous years
was broken last month.
The New Westminister Columbian
thinks Joe Martin is only bluffing in
talking about resigning from polii-
tics. That may be so; but there is
no uncertainty about the fact that peO'
pie are not bluffing in desiring him
to step down and out.

The Vancouver Province puts forward n good suggestion���that inasmuch as Capt. Troup haB been appointed to the command of the C. P.

ship. 	
Tho Imperial Limited train.! on the

shortened several hours. The service
afforded by the Imperial Limited is
probably the finest on any railroad in
the world.

A majority of the provincial ex
changes which have reached The Min
er are loud in denouncing the proposal
of the government to increase the per
capita tax as planned in tho new
Bohool bill., W'c think tlie government
would have displayed wisdom if it
bad iiiiiilii .111 attempt to ascertain
public opinion upon the Suggestion he-
fore reaching a decision and bring
ing down a bill.
The government of (limit llritain is
displaying nn astonishing Indiffer
enec to the views of Senator Morgan
It lias actually had the audacity to
announce thut It will refuse to nbro
gate or modify tho Cluyton-llulwer
treaty, and this, mind you, in the face
of Morgan's threat to annihilate the
Empire If his views were not met I
Morgnn may be expected to he seized

The Kootenay Mail remarks that
the officials' of the 0, P, R. are entitled to great credit for the energy which
they displayed in opening the road
after the heavy blockades of a few
days ago. Wo think that if there is
one point upon which there is complete unanimity of opinion it is that
the 0, P, R, is 11 splendidly���almost
perfectly���managed institution, and
that Its olllclalsuru unsparing in their
efforts to advance the interests of the
road and look after the welfare of its
patroiiH.	
We do not think the proposal of the
government to increase tbe per capita
tax will meet with approval. Naturally no one likes to have his taxes
added to, especially in the ratio of (15
per cent.���Vancouver World.
The minister of education is a courageous man to propose to add to the
direct taxation of tne province, and
lie must be a gentleman of resource,
too, to securo the assent of the supporters of the government to his proposition.���Victoria Times.
The question of leadership, we are
told, was not even discussed at the
opposition caucus at Victoria. Joe's
talk of resignation appears to be
bluff. His is a kindred spirit to that

iu heaven."���Columbian,
The officials of the C. P. R are
entitled to great credit for the prompt
manner in which they reopened the
road east of Revelstoke after the
blockade caused by the heavy rains

it was well done. Superintendent

A more monstrous proposition was
never put forward even In the days of
the old Turner regime. The poll tax
is a relic of the middle ages, of the
days of Wat Tyler, and instead of be
ing increased should be abolished. It
is tbe most unfair and obnoxious tax
in existence. It takes the merest trifle from the rich man and deprives the
poor man of an appreciable portion of
his income. We shall be very much
surprised if the capitalist government
of .Hritish Columbia is permitted to
perpetrate this outrage upon the working classes of tbe cities.��� Naiiatino

. .   _UE BAND 14UK8TION.
The Rocky Mountain  Rangers   Solicit
Support From the City Council.
The band matter referred to in Friday's Miner came before the city
council last night in the form of the
following communication:
"The Rocky Mountain Rangers band
respectfully solicit your assistance
for the purpose of increasing the
membership of the band by obtaining
for us the instruments formerly purchased by the city and by public sub
soription, which were used by tbe
city band during a portion of last
year.
.' / "Also by making a monthly allowance from the olty treasury for tho
purpose of providing weekly public
concerts as has been done on former
occasions by your body. In soliciting
your support for this worthy object
we would respectfully beg to submit
that we are the only organization of
this nature which has successfully
adhered together since its inception,
as has been proved by the long engagements we filled at the park all
last summer and at the rink,and other
engagements wc are at the present
time successfully filling.
' "We consider that a city of such
.importance as Nelson is entitled to
have one first class band to worthily
represent it on all public occasions.
By our own private exertions we have
purchased sufficient instruments to
form the nucleus of a good ban J and
have provided a high class of music in
all our performances, but we feel that
wc cannot come up to the standard
whicli a city of this size requires by
our own unassisted extertions. We
consider that an object of this nature
should not only receive financial
assistance from tho city but also the
hearty support of the citizens generally.
"Your official support and patronage would be the first ami strongest
Btep in obtaining for us the general
support as Ib necessary in keeping a
musical organization of any kind together."
When the communication as above
was presented, Mayor Fletcher suggested that the matter should be referred to
him personally to prepare a report for
the council. There were several
knotty points to be looked into, he
said, before the matter could be gone
into Intelligently by the aldermen.
By resolution the letter was handed
over to the care   of his worBliip.
THE BAND QUESTION.
To the Editor,���In yesterday's issue
of the Tribune, was an extended article* to the effect that the smelter band
had been reorganized, and were apt to
take engagements at any time. The
writer also intimated that the R. M.
R. band was a cheap and selfish organization and did not deserve the
patronage of the pulbic. One accusation as to cutting the price of playing at the latter end of the rink engagement is a falsehood, and the
writer, it is hoped, has simply been
misinformed. I don't question their
integrity as to the manner in which
they acquired their funds to purchase
their instruments. All I can say as to
that is, a good musician almost invariably owns his own instrument.
Speaking ot the R. M. R. band, I can
truthfully say that wo have always
charged a fnir price both to our em-.
ployers and to ourselves and by sticking to the same have lost several engagements to the opposition, who,
though out-numbering us, havo offered to play for a lower figure. If tlie
smelter band was in shape to take the
rink engagement I' beg to ask why
they were not present at the procession when the lust sad honor was done
Her Majesty, the Queen? Also why
they were not in attendance when
the volunteers left for South Africa?
And why they did not attend the
smoker to help draw a crowd for the
benefit of the boys? All these dates
were cheerfully filled by the R. M. H.
band gratis. It is against our principal to antagonize anyone, but such a
base slur, and pack of untruths cannot go without contradiction.

weighing over 3,000 pounds, -six years
old and well adapted to departmental
purposes.
SPLENDID ASSAY���
James Hickey, one of the owners of
tbe Glad Hand gioup on the east fork
of Cottonwood creek, returned the
other day from tbe property, bringing a sample of the ore found in the
lower tunqel, which is now in 20 feet.
The sample was assayed and went $35.
The ore in the face of the lower level
is from a foot to 18 inches in width.
THE PLANT 11 ERE���
E. C. Traves has received the plant
to be placed in the cold storage department of the West Kootenay Hatch-
er company's establishment. The apparatus, which is the direct expansion
ammonia system, built by the Vulcan
Iron Works, of San Francisco, arrived at the depot yesterday and will be
placed in position as rapidly as possible. It cost about $3,0U0 laid down
at Nelson.
CHANCELLOB COMING���
The Knights of Pythias are making
preparations to receive James L.
Brown of Kamloops, grand chancellor
of the order in British Columbia,
who is to pay a formal visit to Nelson tomorrow evening. The regular
meeting baa been postponed to Wednesday, an arrangement having been
made to exchange with the A. 0. F.
who  have the hall.
PREPARING FOR TENNIS���
The members ot the Nelson Tennis
clnb are picparing for tho season
play. A number of the players have
already visited the courts and nccom
plished much in the direction of plac
ing the ground in good condition
for the pastime. The club of 11100 had
a most successful season, and it is prob
able that this year's organization will
enjoy equal prosperity.
ANNUAL ASSESSMENT���
The city clerk has been authorized
to proceed witli the compilation of
the annual assessment rolls. The intention is to have the rolls complete
for presentation to the council at its
meeting on May 0. It is anticipated
that the value of real estate in the
city will aggregate considerably more
than last year because of the extensive improvements carried ont in 1000.
APPEAL ENTERED-
Elliot A Lennie, solicitors tor the
Chapleau Consolidated Mining Company, have entered an appeal in the
matter of York & Co. vs. Chapleau.
Application will be made in chambers
on Thursday for a stay of execution,
pending the appeal. The appeal is
brought on the ground that the plaintiff's account was imurrod by J. M.
Williams when the latter was constructing the wagon road, that plaintiffs always looked to Williams to
settle the amount and that no evidence was produced to establish that
the company was in any way responsible for the obligation.
CAUGHT REIWANDED���
A trio of sidewalk bicycle searchers
were caught redhanded on Sunday afternoon. The lads were riding down
Kootenay street at top speed shouting to pedestrians to clear the way,
and generally malting nuisances of
themselves, quite obvious of a quiet
looking citizen who stood at the Hank
of Montreal corner watching their
movements. When they approached
the man stepped out into the middle
of the street and declined to give the
wheels the right of way. Furthermore
he "collared" the three scorchers and
tabulated their names in a little notebook. Soon after tho boys learned that
the citizen who had interfered with
their sport was Constable Hcavener,
and now they are waiting for blue
papers.
ABATE THE MUD-
The condition of Ward street between Baker and Vernon streets came
in for some discussion at last night's
council meeting. It was agreed by
the aldermen that something should
be done to improve the condition of
the block which is very properly regarded as one of the principal streets
of the city, and various means of
achieving this result were suggested.
It is likely that any permanent improvements will be left until the postofiice building is completed, although
the condition of the stree* during the
interim with tlie heavy Increase In
trallle consequent on the building operations Is not pleasant to look forward to.
ON THE ROAD-
Atter exhibiting in Nelson this
week the cinematogaph show, exhibiting pictures of the late Queen's fun
eral procession, will go on tho road.
It is proposed to take in the Slocan
towns and then go through to the
coast, where the attarction is expected to draw well. J. E. Annable will
travel in advance.

WILL START WORK���
Work Is to bo commenced at once on
the Achilles group, above the Molly
Gibson property. The group is owned
by B. W. Willie and Chris Sberbart

opment would seem to indicate that
with development the Achilles will
prove one of the best properties in
the district. Messrs. Willie and Slier
bart will proceed at once with the
construction of a house on the Acliil

claims continuously for the balance of

where he has spent the past six
months. Mr. Willie has extensive
mining interests in Mexico, being
part owner of tho Veta Grande (Rig
Ledge) group, a copper property of
much promise, which is shaping well
aa devalopment proceeds. When he
left the south, the winter season was
_t its best, the weather excellent and
the markets full of strawberries nnd
Other fresh fruits and vegetables.

Queen's Funeral   Procession   Pictures
Draw a Big Hous3.
The first production in British Co'
Iuinl>ia of the cinematograph pictures
showing the late Queen's funeral procession was greeted by the largest
audience seen at the Nelson opera
house for a twelvemonth. Half an
hour before the curtain rose,every seat
in the house was disposed of and
within a few minutes all the available
standing room had been occupied. As
a result fully two hundred people failed to witness the exhibition, and for
the benefit of these and.others the
management has been nrged to repeat
the performance tonight, which .will
be done.
Of the 725 people who crowded the
theatre last night it Is safe to state
that 00 per cent, were not only pleased
with|[the manner in which the performance was conducted, but impressed beyond measure by the pictures. The
magnificence of the greatest funeral
procession of the past decade has
been described in volumes but the real
Import of the de6ciiptions is not understood or appreciated nntil the spectacle is re-enacted before the spectator's eyes. This is accomplished in
the cinematograph where every feature of the procession Is reproduced as
though the spectator had actually been
an eye witness. The instrument which
oaught the thousands of photographs
that make up the exhibition was located in Hyde Park, a point where
nothing interfered with perfect results. Seated in the audience one saw\
the various units of the great. parade
pass by for fifty-five minutes, notability after notability,regiment after
regiment, horse, foot and artillery
until the magnificence of the actual
spectacle was borne in never to be
forgotten.
Among the first of the great actors
in tlie scene was Lord Roberta followed by a gigantic guarsdman. At
the sight of the veteran general the
audience applauded heartily. Later
on cuuie the massed bands of the
guard regiments, 200 strong, and close
behind the gun carriage drawn by
eight cream-colored horses .and bearing the casket with the royal crown.
Following the gun carriage were a
remarkable gathering of loyalties,
headed by King Edward VII., the
Kaiser and including no fewer than
forty sovereigns or members of royal
families. Toward the end was de
plctcd the touching scene at Windsor
when the naval contingent drew the
gun carriage after it had been decided
that the unruly gun team provided
could not be entrusted with the carriage and its|sacred burden.
At tlie conclusion of the funeral pictures the uudlence was entertained
with a series of stirring war views.
These proved to be new and decidedly
interesting.
