in quarantine and disinfecting tbe
place.
Shea is still at Dr. Green's house
and tbe yellow Hag; is out. The patient Is having good care and is rest'
ing as easily as eould be expected under the circumstances. Shea is about
40 years of age and Is a member of
the Ymir Miners' union in good standing. JThere is not much excitement In
town over the matter but quite a number are taking the necessary precaution ot being vaccinated.
GREENWOOD'S
CONVENTION
Nelson has quarantined against all
points where smallpox exists or to
which it 1b likely to spread,including
the whole of East Kootenay. Regulations to this effect went into force this
morning and the conditions of the
quarantine are to be enforced to the
letter. Last year's experience of the
plague was sufficient to last the city
for all time to come, and it is safe to
predict that should a caBe arrive at the
wharf, the patient will be kept out
of the corporation at all odds. Much a
step might look inhuman, but when
the interests of an entire community
are at stake the end must justify the
means. Outside of the city plague
stricken patients must be cared for
BY THE PROVINCE
and the city officials will not be disposed to handle another provincial
patient in view of the manner in
which tbe provincial authorities repudiated their obligations last winter.
It is believed that by demanding
from passengers arriving from points
east of Kootenay river, certificates of
vaccination and statements signed by
properly accredited parties setting
forth that they bave not been exposed
to infection, the danger of the trou
ble spreading to this city will be eliminated. Tbe uu......... . xi \uf**.
Moyie are-apparently exercising every
precaution to prevent the disease going further and with the regulations
strictly enforced here the chances of
trouble are reduced to a minimum.
NOTICE  WAS SERVED
Toronto, March 8.��� Colonel Denison,
president of tbe British Empire
league, has received a letter from
Sandford Fleming, supporting state-
owned cables.which concludes: "Our
aim is to remove all monopolistic tax
on free intercourse, all unnecessary
tolls on that marvellous gift of science
To that end we must be resolute and
strive to press upon the representatives of the people of Canada, Australia and the mother country, the
urgent need to nationalize the cable
system of this great empire."

"Whereas, owing to the well
known salubrity of tbe climate, large
numbers of consumptive. persons resort to British Columbia, and,
"Whereas the dry belt of the province is peculiarly suitable for the
treatment of consumption,
"Resolved, that this Association requests the governments of Canada and
British Columbia, to erect or aid in
the erection of suitable buildings in
the province for the treatment of consumptive patients and to take such
other measures as may seem desirable."

HILL BUYS THE MINES
And Railroad Charter Assured���
So Runs the Report.
(Special to The Miner.)
Vancouver, March 2.���The announcement was made here today on the best authority that
James ,1. Hill, of the Great
Northern railway, and J. P.
Morgan, and J. D. Rockefeller
with other members of American smelter trust, had purchased
a proprietory Interest in the
Irow's Nest coal mines. The
deal was closed - during the current week and though it .has
been on the tapis for some time,
is more extensive than was first
thought. It is gi)ven out by parties interested that the Dominion government is certainly
counted upon to.&ive charter to
a railway to the boundary line
so that transportation by the
Great Northern . to ��� American
smelters will be absolutely controlled.

yesterday on the transportation people that passengers from East Kootenay would require certificates of
health, and this is likely to simplify
the duties of tbe local officers, as the
railroad people are not likely to take
the risk of having another steamer
tied up for several weeks as happened
to the Moyie last year.
The fact that the Moyie-case originated with a miner who had come in
from Spokane would seem to point to
the Impression that the inspection at
tbe boundary line was not as thorough
as it should be, though there is a possibility that the man came through
before the regulations were put in
force.    With the disease at two points
IN EAST KOOTENAY
residents of Nelson are justified in believing tbat the time has arrived for
the most stringent measures to secure
the immunity of the city. The medical health officer wbb criticized in
some quarters last year for the severity of the measures he adopted, but It
is probable the citizens will be better
pleased now as the regulations increase in severity. Smallpox In Nelson would exercise a deterrent effect
on the success of the town which
would put it back for several years.

(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Moyie, B. C, March 2.���Moyie has
a mild case of smallpox. The victim .is
Dennis Shea, a miner who arrived
here about 10 days ago from Spokane.

ENFORCED TO THE LETTER,
as the intention of tbe   Dominion au
thorities Is to protect Canadian work
ers from unfair competition.
The output for the week ending this
evening,    7,711   tons,   is   the  second
highest ever made from the vamp,, be-
1 ng beaten only by tbe record for   the
week   before, last.    This  is owing to
the    fact   that   the  Rossland   Great
Western contributed over 500   tons I to
the week's output. This only partially
makes  up  for   the   deficency  in   the
shipments of   the Le Roi   during   the
time of tbe repairing of the old shaft.
The total shipments of   the year show
that just under 1,000   tons   a day  are
being shipped from   tbe   camp.    This
will   probably   put the shipments for
the year over 400,000 tons ana  should
DOUBLE THE RECORD
for last year   as the   mines at present
are   not  shipping   their   full   quota.
With the completion of  the  tramway
from the War Eagle that mine will be
able to ship much more than at  present.   It   is   pretty   generally known,
despite  the reticence of   the management, that   the ore bodies  discovered
, upon the eighth   level show tbat   the
) values of the War Eagle ore have been
1 recovered together with an even larger
area of ore than   previously  obtained
from that mine, and larger output may
be expected.   In a short whiie the Le
Rot will be enabled through improvements which are being made, to   ship
on a larger   scale   and the  Nortbport
smelter will soon be able to handle the
increased     output.     Tbe     Rossland
Great   Western   will probably be in a
position,   now   that   it    has  started
shipping   to   send 100  tons of ore per
day    continuously.    The    shipments
will be  swelled   by the output of  Le

a reasonable request. In putting the

figures, tbe evidence of which was to

so long been preparing. That it will
lead to the complete disintegradion
of the more Important of the Boer
units und possibly to the personal
SURRENDER OF BOTHA
and Dewet, the British war office earnestly hones.
General Kitchener is almost as reticent towards his chiefs in Pall Mall as
to the general public. When he has
taken General Botha into his camp
the war office expects to hear of
It, but not before. As an official said
to a reporter of the Associated Press,
grimly, "armistices are not in Kitchener's line."
The meeting of General Kitchener
and Sir Alfred Mile-ir at Pretoria,
probably occurring on Sunday, is generally taken as likely to result in the
establishment of a
MORE PERMANENT FORM '
of civil government in which the severities of martial law will be somewhat tempered in several sections of
the country, but neither in London
nor in South Africa ate the British
officials shutting tbeir eyes to the fact
that they have a long job ahead of
tbem which can only be lightened and
by no means solved through the victories over the Beer units.
The glory which tho British press
sometime ago showered on General
Dewet has departed from him. In
despatches and editorials, he Is now
belittled as
A DISAPPOINTED  RAIDER,

hie fruitless anger by  sjamboking his
reluctant handful of followers.    Calmer  observers, especially   officers  who

from   which   he   may be expected   at
any   moment to emerge  accompan'ed
by a force which, though not formidable in numbers, will be   particularly
formidable   in   execution.    The   false
announcement    of   General    Botha's
I surrender Thursday   will be a matter
ona of the most   extensive   Bllver-lead
producing   concerns   in   the province,
Mr. Drewry   is   naturally   anxious to
see the matter   carried   through,   entirely outside  of his connection   with

regards it as the solution of the  problem of   securing   to   the   country the
full benefit of its remarkable   mineral
wealth,   stating   that   the   syndicate
with which he   is   identified   will not
undertake   the   development   of other
properties until the issues now vexing
the silvir-lead    industiy   are   settled.
The   fact   that   mining   and business
men   generally   are   strongly supporting tbe proposal to establish
A CANADIAN REFINERY
will doubtless strengthen the hands of
the   syndicate   which   has   offered to
carry the project through,
Mr. Drewry states that the mill at
the St. Eugene has recommenced operations and that mining is being carried on at the Moyie and Lnke shore
properties, though somewhat under
difficulties because of the fact that tho
bunkhouses are ^quarantined. The
concentrates from the mill are being
shipped to Germany and Antwerp.
The shipment of ore to the Nelson
Bmelter from the Sunset mine at
Whitewater did not get through, aB

THE   GREENWOOD   CONVENTION.
The result of the deliberations of
the delegates to the third annual convention of the Associated Boards of
Trade of Southern British Columbia
may, we think, he considered as likely to have a very important bearing
upon the future development of the
Kootenays. It remains to be demonstrated whether or not the convention
acted wisely in endorsing tho project to build a line of railway south
from the Crow's Nest Pass coal fields
to the boundary line, though it must
be admitted thut the decision reached
by such a representative gathering
on this most important point is cal
ciliated to create the impression that
there is not much to fear on the score
of a possible shortage in the coal
nnd cone supply. The suggestion
which was put forward that a final
decision on the matter should be deferred until a thorough and exhaustive examination had been made into
tbe effect   of   the
proposed road upon the mining and
smelting industries of the province,
was, we think, a reasonable one and
might properly have received more
favorable consideratii n. The address of the retiring president of the
Association, Mr. J. Roderick Robertson, is a very interesting document.
It is very gratifying to be told from
so authoritative a Bource that the
past few months have disclosed not
able improvements in the general con
dition of the mining   industry   in the
All who have the best interests of
the country at heart will join with
him in hoping tbat this confidence
will he strengthened and assisted
by wise legislation, eo that a prolonged period of prosperity may confidently be anticipated. The reference to the labor difficulties of the
past is made in wisely-chosen language and is calculated to conciliate
the elements who have profeseed an
inclination to believe tbat a disposition would not be manifested to accord fair treatment. On this point a
very important suggestion is put forward���that a coinmitteo be appointed whose duty it would be to offer
their good services in an endeavor
to avert the ill consequences of any
future disagreements. This will no
doubt be acted upon and much good
may leasonably be expected to result
therefrom. The advisability of ton-
using and otherwise assisting the construction of smelters is touched upon. There is every reason to believe
that tho governments are In a mood
to view with favor a recommendation
of this kind and it is reasonable to
assume that at no distant date the
desired assistance may be forthcoming. A word of timely warning is
uttered to the provincial government
to refrain from making any further
alterations In the mining laws, so
that the mistakes of the past may
be avoided. Very properly, we
think, a strong protest is entered
against the suggestion to Impose an
export duty on lead ores, as such action would unquestionably work a
great hardship on the shipping mines
and likely have the effect of closing
down many properties. Taken In its
entirety the address of the retiring
president was a very able one and
the recommendations and suggestions
therein made are veiy valuable and
will meet with   general   approbation.
that   correspondence   Is     now   going
on between   Ottawa   nnd   London   on
this   very   subject.    The   correspondence at this   moment   Is   confidential,
and it is not in my   power to give the
communications to the   house,
out going into   particulars as
tenor   of   the   correspondence    I may
slate   that   I   am   altogether with my
honorable friend in thinking   that   it
would be   most   unfortuate   if   Their
Royal    nighoeuefl   of   Cornwall   and
York had not an opportunity of visiting every province    in    the   nonunion

and   I   believe   the best   mode of   all
would be for Their Royal Highnesses,
who   nre   to   return   from    Australia
next   September,    to   come by way of
the Pacific   instead   of   the   Atlantic,
landing at   Vancouver,    visiting British Columbia, the   towns of Manitoba
and   so  on   down   towards   Halifax.
This is   the   view   I think we can assume, Is    being   represented   at   this

The outlook for building operations
In Nelson during the coining summer
iH very good, and it is altogether
likely that a large number of new
structures, both residences and business blocks, will he erected.
That the outlook for a successful
season's trade is good is shown by the
report of the transactions by the
wholesalers during the past week.
All indications point to a considerable increase in the volume of business over lust year.
promise them what he Is not certain
they have a right to expect, or what
ho knows to be serviceable and proper
legislation, if passed. As a result he
dues not come to the standard of the
enthusiast who wants Rome built in
a day. The dishonest pettifgoger
will, however, promise the people
everything that tickles their expectations for the time being, and as a result he gets their votes. In time the
peoplo learn they have been fooled,
but in the meantime the good men
huvc been excluded from the legislature.
We have a stiiking illustration of
this in the caBc of Joseph Martin,
He was a resident of Manitoba in Its
earlier days, and by appealing to the
worst passions of the farmers' unions
and every other organization In the
country, that saw everything wrong
In the existing laws of the land because they were not growing wealthy
In u year or two, he became the lion
of the hour. In a few years, however, thoy marked humbug on his
back in large characters; and he left
for this* province where he has reported himself und with the same results.
He is now stepping out ot everything political in this province, and
retiring into private life, so it is reported, but he has been the author
of mure vexatious legislation and broken pledges than any other four men
who ever set foot in the provincial
house. It will yet become Impressed
on the conviction of the electors of
this province that the aspiiant who
panders to theit strongest prejudices,
and promises them the moBt for their
votes, will in time be shown to be
their greatest weight and worst enemy of the country. Until this is
fully learned, however, we may expect to see charlatans and quacks filling the legislative halls of the country.���The Mining Review.

VISIT   OP   HEIR APPARENT.
In the house on Thurday   a   resolution was passed pressing   tho Duke of
York   to   visit   liritlsb   Columbia   on
his return from   Australia.    It is sincerely to be hoped that the royal party
may be   induced   to amend their programme nnd   thus meet the wishes of
the people of Western   Canada.    (Some
of the eastern   papeis  have made   the
statement   that   the   intention   is   to
land at Halifax and   not  come to   the
Pacific  coast.    Colonel   Prior,    M.   I
for Victoria, brought   the  matter   up

has been blocked by a slide of snow
and mud, and that this will necessitate the dispatching of mall, freight

Nelson, has set thoughtful people to
speculating on the possibility of future developments resulting in an
abandonment of the main line to
some extent and the diversion of the
greater portion of the traffic through
Nelson. What that would mean to
the prosperity of Nelson may be left
to the imagination of our readers.

OFFICIAL BLUNDERING.
London, Maroh 2.���An almost uu
exarapled case of official blundering is
reported from Liverpool today. ' It appears that the war office was under
the impression that the Liverpool Volunteers were still in South Africa and
kept a new special service corps on
waiting orders until it could be as
certained whether the Liverpool volunteers required strengthening. The
Liverpool volunteers returned to Liverpool four months ago.

VIOLETS ON MARCH 2���
Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Cambpcll paid a
visit to their summer home across
the river yesterday and found beds of
violets and daisies in full bloom.
Last year the first were found on
March 12, so that this year brings
them   forth ten days earlier.
A CORRECTION���
In the Miner's reference to tbe
transfer of an interest in the IJluir-
more coal fields to R. E. Fishburn of
this city, an error was made in the
purchase price. The figure at which
tbe interest changed hands was $25
000 not $2,000 as was inadvertently
stated.
SECURED PROMOTION���
J. R. Crudge, chief clerk at the
freight sheds, has been appointed to
the agency o-f the company at Kaslo,
in succession to Alder Bishop, who
has joined the Baden-Powell constabulary. Mr. Crudge left yesterday for
his D.'w post followed by the best
wishes of a large circle of friends.
TnE MAIL ARRIVED���
After being luid out by slides for
several days the Nelson & Fort Shep
piird train came in last night only a
couple of hours late. A number of
Nelson people, Rev. J.II. White among
the number, were trainbound at Ymir
and other points for several days, and
in several instances the unfortunates
"hit tbe ties" and "walked back
home."
BAPTIST SERVICES���
Five more new members will receive
the hand of fellowship at this morning's service, which will make ten
additions in all since the year began. The morning sermon will be on
the subject, "Wanted���Convictions,"
and in tbe evening Pastor Morgan
will speak to young men on "Sowing
and Reaping." All are cordially
invited.
FIRE BRIGADE MATTERS���
At Monday night's council meeting
the fire, water and light committee
will present another report dealing
with fire department reorganization. The committee meets tomorrow
to go into the matter fully and their
deliberations will bo based on a report by Chief Lillie in which he deals
with the points enlarged on in The
Miner yesterday.
THE ANOERONA RAISED���
After reposing at the bottom of the
lake in six or eight feet of water for
six months, the steamer Angeionu
was raised yesterday by n crew of
men acting under the direction of
George Hale. A C. P, R barge was
used for the purpose, and little difficulty was experienced in getting the
croft to the surface. It was found
on examination the hull was damag
ed beyond repair, bnt that the engines had suffered but little from the
long immersion. Captain C. W
Busk, owner of the Angerona, will
build a new hull for the machinery.
A CRAVING.
Nature Hints to Us of a Food That is
Needed.
It is interesting to know that food
alone, if of the right kind, will surely cure most diseases.
A young lady in Corry, Pa., was
seriously ill as the result of two Her
Sous falls, and from overwork, wns
an invalid for 5 years. She says: "It
whs impossible to gain strength. 1
had to lie down most of every afternoon whether I had company, work
or pleasure I wanted ever so much to
enjoy.
"Two months ago I began using
Grape-Nuts Food and experienced a
gain iu strength at once. In less
than a week I did not require more
than un hour's rcHt and now when I
havo eaten my dinner, of which
Grape-N'nts forms the most part, I am
not obliged to go to bed, but go to
work or play instead. I am always
hungry for Grape-Nuts for they satisfy some craving I can scarcely   define.
"A friend of mine is nursing a 5
months old baby, she is inordinately
fond of Grape-Nuts Food but found it
necessary to forego the luxury of the
usual amount because it increased the
flow of milk so much as to cause
discomfort. "

are said to have netted tjSO per ton.
A LONG SIEGE���
Some of the passengers who arrived
in the city last, night on tbe delayed
Nelson & Fort Shcppard train had ���
long seige of it, having been since
Monday last aboard the train endeavoring to reach Nelson fiom Nortbport.
ORDERS TO MOVE���
John Spear who occupies a small
building on the rear of the new post-
office site has received orders from the
department of public works to vacate
tlic premises by the end of the month.
This would seem to indicate that the
postofiice buildings are to be com
inenced at an e"rly dute.

II. F. Macleod, district land regis
trur threw open the doors of the registry office to the public for the first
time yesterday morning at !l o'clock.
The first deed recorded was filed by
T. J. McC'ammon a few minutes after
the hour of opcnlntf. During the
morning a number of other documents
were filed making a good day's business. The books of the office are to
arrive here today. W J. Fort, a clerk
iu the office ut Victoria, will also be
in the city to assist in the local office
for a month or two.
EXTENDING THE BUSINESS���
Percy Chapman, manager of A.
Macdonald & Co. 's business in the
Kootcnays, has returned home from
Vancouver, where he spent a week or
two iu connection with the firm's
project of establishing a branch of
the business on an extensive scale at
the coast. Mr. Chapman states that
the proposition does not in any way
affect the business in this district.
With a coast branch, the A. Macdonald company will be one of the larg-
els wholesale grocery houses in the
west, having branches at Rat Portage,
Winnipeg, Nelson and Vancouver.
FOR THE LADIES-
Fred Irvine & Co. are advertising in
today's Miner a special sale of sum
mer dress goods. Tho goods to be
offcied were damaged at the ends of
the rolls in an accident on the Crow's
Nest line, and, with their usual
promptitude, the C. P. R. officials
settled with Messrs. Irvine & Co. for
the damage done. While for ail pur
poses the material is practically as
good as ever, the firm is enabled to
sell it at greatly reduced prices, and
the ladies of Nelson will benefit
thereby. The sale begins at
o'clock tomorrow morning and will
continue until the goods are disposed of.
FIREMEN KEPT BUSY���
The fire department had a busy of
ternoon yesterday. Chief Lillie had
the brigade out soon after lunch for
drill. The wagon was taken to the
corner of Hall and Baker streets
where ladder drill was practiced for
an hour or so. The apparatus had
barely been boused when Mayor
Fletcher sent in an alarm from the
corner of Stanley street and Hall
Mines road. The brigade turned out
again and went to the scene. Driver
Boyd bundled tho wagon well. The
team was nol pressed at any stage of
the run aud succeeded in climbing
the hill without a htop, although on
reaching their destination they were
winded and could not have made another block without a rest.
ON THE MAIN LINE-
Nclson is to be on the main line of
the C. P. R. for a few days. Because
of the interruption of traffic in the
Kicking Horse Pass through snow-
slides, the main line passenger traffic
has been diverted over the Crow's
Nest Pass line, and is now running
through this city. The first through
train arrived ut the landing last
night and 170 main line passengers
were brought in on the Moyie and
sent through to Robson on an extra
train. The Arrowhead lake steamer
was waiting there and the business
handled with much less delay and inconvenience to the travellers than
would have been occasioned by transfers over the snowslldefl. It is probable the main line will be open in a
day or two.
PROSPECT FOR BASEBALL-
Tlie passing of the hockey season
has led the local athletic enthusiasts
to look ahead to the opening of the
baseball season. The "fans" are even
now discussing reorganization and it
is probable a meeting will be called
within the present month for the
purpose of roorgauizating the club and
getting tho game under way. Rossland has already taken action in the
direction of deciding upon a professional line to be run under the auspices of the Athletic club. Local en
thusiusts state that a number of clever
baseball players, including a pitcher,
catcher, and first baseman, have Jo
rated in the city since the close of last
season, and that with this additional
material tbe home nine will be the
strongest in the history of the city.
CRAWFORD CREEK SMELTER���
Henry Roy, general  manager of the
London   Consolidated    and   Richelieu
Mining companies,returned last night
from   a   month's   trip   to    Montreal.
When Mr. Roy wnt east it was   gen
erully understood   that one of his ob
jects     was to   interest   capital   In   I
scheme to erect a smelter on Crawford
creek.    When   asked last night  as   to
the success   attending this part of his
mission, Mr. Roy was  somewhat retU
cent, only remarking:   "I have every
thing ready and am only awaiting the
construction   of   a   railroad into  the
Crawford creek   country."   When approached as to the feeling on the Hill
charter, Mr. Roy stated that while he
thought the charter  would   be grant
ed, the feeling was divided and that a
severe fight would  be necessary to
cure the granting of the charter.
TO CURE THE GRIP IN TWO DAYS
Laxative Bromo-Quinlno removes the cause.
CRIME WILL OUT.
Prisoner at the Jail Alleged to Be In
genious   Swindler.
That crime will out is evidenced in
the case of George Emory, a prisoner
undergoing a six months sentence at
the provincial jail for theft. His
offence was tbat of stealing a suit of
clothes from another man's room, but
since his arrest another and more serious offence has been laid at his door.
It is alleged by the authorities that
Emory worked an ingenious swindle
whereby the nail Mines smelter lost
over 850.
The story is that after negotiating
the swindle, Emory fled to the coast,
but came back apparently under the
impression tbat Nelson was an ideal
stamping ground for a smooth man.
Up to September last Emory nes em
ployed at the smelter as a laborer. On
the 19th of the month he went to the
foreman stating that G. A. Geselle,
another laborer, had requested him to
ask for a time check. Gesello's check
was accordingly made out and handed
to Emory who took it to the office
and secured a check on the Bank of
Commerce.
To secure tbe check he had to represent himself ns Geselle, and the same
imposture was practiced at tho bank
where the check was converted into
cash. Then Emory left town and
when the swindle was detected no
trace could be secured of his whereabouts.
About a month ago he came back,
nnd had not been in town! long when
the theft of clothing took place and
he was sent over the road. During
the trial for this offence at the police
court one of the witnesses called
suspected Emory, and in a few days
the police had further information
which seems to leave no doubt that
the George Emory in the jail and the
George Emory who swindled the Hall
Mines are identical.
On Tuesday afternoon Emory will
be placed on trial for obtaining money
under false pretences.
