A TALK WITH
MR, ROBERTSON
General Manager of London
& B.C. Goldflelds Go.
Interviewed.

Nelson,   British Columbia, Wednesday,  March 27. 1901.
Eleventh Year

His Ideas Regarding the Pro
posed Reflnery_and Mining Matters.
J. Roderick Robertson, general manager of the London and British Columbia Goldfields, Limited, bas returned to the city after a pleasant trip
to Southern California. In the course
of his visit he travelled through the
heart of the fruit growing seotion of
the state and in this connection draws
attention to a rather remarkable condition of affairs. The heavy rains of
this season after several years of comparative drought have resulted in an
extraordinary fruit crop, but the producers cannot secure cars to ship their
product. The number of tourists visiting the state during the season has
been far in excess of former years and
to accommodate the passenger business it is stated that the railroads
have heen operating extra trains and
employing in this service the locomotives which would otherwise have been
used to haul fruit cars. Without
power to handle the cars it is impossible for the fruit producers to market
their crop and it is likely that the advantages of the heavy crop will be
lost, much to the disgust of the
planters.
Touching on local matters,Mr. Rob'
ertson remarked that he had kept In
close touch with the leading topics of
public dlscusion by means of the district papers nnd other reports. The
refinery proposition lie regarded as of
great Imports nee, as it was inoBt desirable to terminate the present tension
as soon as possible, but he considered there were features attached to the
question of a subsidy which had not
had the thorough consideration desirable under the circumstances. The
fact had apparently been overlooked
that if the granting of a subsidy to
the smelting industry was not made
conditional upon concessions to the
mining industry, the latter would not
permanently profit by the expenditure.
If the subsidy was to be employed to
swell the income of the smelters instead of being utilized to reduce present, in many instances increased,
charges for treatment the mining companies would be exactly in the same
pes! lion they occupy today and thus
the opportunity of relieving the situation would be missed. On the other
hand if the smelters would make the
subsidy a means of reduoing their
charges by that much, the mining Industry might reap some benefit and If
a bounty was granted it should be
conceded with this object in view. A
bounty to the smelting industry, which
recently had benefited by advanced
charges for treatment, reduced railroad charges and reductions in luel,
would seem to take it for granted
that smelting could not be conducted
profitably. It this was the case, it
might perhaps be reasonably asked
how could the mines be expected to
operate profitably in view of the increased charges for treatment, wages
and the additional taxation imposed
by the legislature. It Is equally important to reduce taxation and cost of
production of the mines. There is
the danger, too, that the government
having conceded a bounty to the smelters would wash its bands of the mining industry and to requests for legislation favorable to the development of
the mining industry directly would
say: "We have subsidized your output, what more can you reasonably
ask?' A careful scrutiny of the situation failed to convince him that the
bounty on refined lead would in itself
alone greatly stimulate mining unless
it acted as an inducement to smelters
to reduce the charges now demanded.
Nor was there anything to indicate
that the smelters would act along this
line, In fact tho weight of evidence
was in the opposite direction, as, in
instance, the prompt manner in which
rates were geneially increased when
the American smelteis ceased to purchase ores in the Kootenays.
Mr. Robertson had read with interest the dispatch In yesterday's issue of
The Miner to the effect that the government had apparently gone into the
matter of proceeding with the Coast-
Kootenay railroad as a government
work. In commenting On the proposition, he deprecated at present any action of the government proposing such
a radical overturning of its fiscal policy at a juncture when the capital necessary for the development of the
country's resources was in such a condition that such radical financial departures from its former policy would
have a highly prejudicial effect. In
his opinion the government would
have done well to leave the railroad
building matter alone until a more
aqspicious juncture, particularly as It
had been demonstrated that government ownership of railroads had not
proved an unmixed blessing to tha
merchants and  bueiueos  men,   How
ever, if the government is determined
upon embarking on public |works of
this nature, Mr. Robertson hoped they
would begin with the lereotion of
government smelters and ^refineries
which individuals appeared to be shy
of constructing by private enterprise
and leave the building of railroads
to those private parties who appeared
to be so anxious to do so
Mr. Robertson met several friends
from Nelson in the sunny south,among
these being A. H. Buchanan.and wife,
W. A. Macdonald and wife and A. H.
Kelly, all looking very much better
for the change of air and scene. Dr.
Hendryx, an old and well known Nelson man, was among those with whom
Mr. Robertson renewed old friendships.    --.
A NATIONAL MEMORIAL.
London Launches a Movement to Erect
a Monument to the Good Queen.
London, March HO.���The Mansion
House was crowded this afternoon,tho
occasion being a public meeting under
the presidency of the lord mayor to
consider the best means for launching the movement to erect a national
memorial in honor of Queen Victoria.
A communication was read from
King Edward contributing ��1,000 to
the fund and expressing the hope tbat
"sufficient money will be forthcoming
to erect a lasting and worthy memorial to the great Queen, my beloved
mother."
Other donations announced including that of the corporation of London,

Victoria, March 26.���Statements received in dispatches from the east respecting the negotiations which are
said to be on between the Canadian
Paul (le railway company and the
Crow's Neat Coal company, looking to
an amicable settlement of the matter
in dispute between the two corporations over the application for a charter for the Crow's Nest Southern railway, lias jaused a good deal of speculation here, as has also the presence
of representatives of the two corporations in the o'ty.
Speaking on the matter Mr. Jaffray
said: "You may say that you called
on me and that I gave you the statement that our advices from the east
are of a similar tenor to the press dispatches already published. We have
not as yet received any material details of the negotiations, whicli are
practically concluded."
Mr. Jaffray was of the opinion that
an amicable arrangement would be
carried out.
George McL. Brown, executive
agent of the Canadian Pacific railway,
was also approached for confirmation
or otherwise of statements made in
regard to negotiations.
"I am able   to tell   you," said  he,
that advices I have received state
that the negotiations respecting the
matter are under way In the east. It
is altogether premature, however, to
say that the agreement is concluded. I
wish you would say that as soon as
the future of the smelting industry of
British Columbia is properly safe
guarded all our opposition  ceases   at
Under the caption "An Unqualified
Denial," the Montreal Daily Star of
Thursday, Mareh 21st, publishes the
following:
Senator Cox last evening, before he
left for Toronto, gave an unqualified
denial to the statement attributed to
him that an agreement had been practically arrived at between the Canadian Pacific railway company and the
Crow's Nest Coal company, by which
In return for important mineral concessions the C. P. R. will withdraw
all opposition to the new charter
which the Dominion Parliament is
asked to sanction from Fernie to the
United States border.
As one of the directors of the Crow's
Nest company, Senator Cox stated
tbat absolutely nothing had as yet
been definitely settled; The matter
had been for some time, and is still
in abeyance, pending the result of the
negotiations at present taking place
between Mr. T. G. Shiiughncssy,
president of the 0. P. R.,i and Mr.
Clarke, the solicitor of the Crow's
Nest Coal company. Certain matters
were under discussion between these
gentlemen which were still the subject of consideration. The negotiations were being conducted in a most
amicable manner, and there was every
reason to believe that a conclusion
satisfactory to both parties would, in
a short time, be reached.
"The only real point at issue, after
all," said Senator Cox, "is the price
of coal in that district. The C. P. R.
company want to make sure that they
can get their supplies at a reasonable
figure. The fact is that we are today
supplying the company with what It
requires. The matter will soon be settled, bnt there U no definite agreement

Ottawa, March 26.���The senate committee to investigate the charges made
by II. S. Cook, to the effect that he
could have had a senntorship if he had
910,000 for it, met today. The committee room in which the meeting
was held was crowded. Cook was the
chief witness and gave evidence at
length, much of which waa very
vague. He produced copies of letters
from the late M. C. Cameron, ex-governor of the territories, with whom
he alleged the conversation regarding
a senatorship had taken place, Camer
on acting as go-between with Sir
Richard Cartwright. Mr. Cook said
he spurned the offer of a senatorship
with a 810,000 price, as he considered
his long service to the parliament
should get him the position. Tbe
committee adjourned   till   tomorrow.

turned King's evidence.
Lennoxvillc, Que.,March 20.���There
is trouble at Bishop's College, over
the, fee for supplementary examinations being raised to $10. r>reviously
it has been 85. The students objected
and wrote the council asking a retuin
to the old fee and demanding an answer within 24 hours. The council
was greatly incensed at the tone of
the students' letter. Rev. Principal
Whitney summoned the students before him and notified them thnt unless
the whole letter or sentence demanding an answer was withdrawn in a
quarter of an hour all the sludentB
would be rusticated. The students refused and the sentence went into
effect. Several students left the college but the prospects tonight are for
an amicable settlement.

(SI'KCIAI. TO THE MINER.)
Ottawa,   Mareh   20.���In   the  house
today Nortlirup introduced a   bill   to
amend the Dominion elections act.
It Ib designed to provide for the punishment of anyone who by means of
promises of reward induces a candidate to withdraw from an election after he has been nominated nnd before
the election takes place. Mr. Hackett
of Prince Edward Island, closed the
budget debate. He spoke at length
upon island affairs. Hon. Mr. Dubell
of Quebec followed.
A happier or healthier looking lot
of men never left Ottawa than the
members of the South African con
stabulary who entrained this afternoon at the central station en route
for Cape Town. Notwithstanding
unfavorable weather, thousands
thronged tho streets and vicinity of
the Btatlon to sec them off. The men

New Yoik, Mareh 26.���The World
says: "Nihilists and Russian anarchists in this city today, started an agitation to aid the Russian students

good.''
KITCHENER   HAS   FAILED
AFRICAN   CORRESPONDENT  SAYS
THE MAILED   HAND PLAN
IS A FIASCO.
MILNER   WANTS   A    FREE HAND
AND CHAFES AT KITCHENER'S   RESTRAINT.
London, March ' 27.���The Pretoria
nnd Bloemfonteln correspondent of
the Times sends long despatches admitting that Lord Kitchener's policy
and operations have failed to achieve
the results hoped for and pointing
out tbat tho British public must be
prepared to retuin to tbe original policy of occupying towns and studding
the country with military posts as the
only means of effecting complete pacification. This, the correspondent
says, will occupy much time and necessitate a constant suppy of fresh
troops. The strain on both officers
and men has been and will be immense and arrangements must be made
to send absolutely fresh troops to
the front in order to enable the others
to be sent home.
"Until tbis aspect of the case is
grasped by the authorities," says the
advice to the Times, "there is u probability of the war lasting for years.
It is quite useless to renew peace negotiations. Nothing approaching
'tetuis' as the word is generally understood, |,would be politic or even
possible with the Boers."
~ The Daily Express prints a rumor
that Sir Alfred Milner is dissatisfied
with his qualified authority and has
asked the government to give him
"either a free hand or no hand." Mr.
Chamberlain is said to have replied
that it would not be advisable to dissociate the authority of Sir Alfred
Milner from that of Lord Kitchonei
and the rumor goes that Sir Alfred
contemplates resigning "It is an
open secret," says the Dally Express,
"that Sir Alfred Milner has long chafed at having Loid Kitchener at his elbow to check or modify his proposals."
The Amsterdam correspondent of
the Daiy Mail wires the substance of
nn interview with Mr. Kruger whom
he found in a most pessimistic frame
of mind. General Babblngton'a victory over General Delarey had been,
Mr. Kruger thought, exaggerated in
the reports. He said the Mugalios-
berg range and Rustiiigburg were
again In tbe possession of the lloers,
continues the correspondent, and tbe
old guerilla programme will be continued until Great Britain will be
forced into making peace overtures.
The correspondent of the Daily
Express reports the capture by 100
Boers, of 130 colonials in a rocky defile near Richmond last Thurday. lie
asserts that the colonials lost 13 men
before they surrendered, adding that
they were all liberated after having
been stripped of their accountrements.
The depatch from Vryheid ii regarded as giving the total of General
French's captures throughout his operations. It indicates, therefore, the
capture of one additional gun and of
additional Boers and war material.
GIVES SALISBURY THE LIE.
Berlin, March 26.���Referring to the
recent answers of Lord Cianborno in
the house of commons to questions regarding the applicability of the Anglo-German agreement to Manchuria,
a high German official said today: "It
was Lord Salisbury himself who during the negotiations preceding the
Anglo-German agreement, wished to
insert in the agreement, a paragraph
formally excepting Manchuria. Count
Von Buelow'a statement in the Reichstag, Mutch 15, was correct. We can
produce the document* any day."

wounded or captured 1,200 Boers. He
also has taken seven cannon, 1,000
rifles, 1,800 wagons and 226,000 head
of horses, cattle uud sheep.
Washington, March 26.���The crisis
in the Chinese question brought
about through the expiration of the
period allowed for the signature by
China of the Manchuria agreement
was the principal topic before the cabinet today. To make clear to the public the complete disapproval which is
entertained by the United States for
this sort of secret treaty making, it
was deemed proper to give out for
publication the following memorandum :
"Chinese correspondence, March I,
1901.���Telegraphic instructions sent
to representatives of the United Suites
in Berlin, Vienna, Paris, London,
Rome, Tokio and St. Petersburg:
"Department of State, Washington,
March 1, 1901.���The following memorandum, which was handed to the Chinese minister on February 19 is transmitted to you for ypur information
and communication to the government
to which you are accredited:
"The preservation of the territorial
Integrity of China having been recognized by all the powers, now engaged
in joint negotiation concerning the
injuries recently inflicted by certain
individuals and subjects of the Chinese empire, it is evidently advantageous to China to continue the present
international understanding upon this
subject. It would be, therefore, unwise and dangerous in tlie extreme for
China to make any arrangements or to
consider any proposition of a private
nature Involving the surrender of territory or financial obligations by convention with any party or power; nnd
the government "of tho United States,
aiming solely at the preservation of
China from the danger indicted with
tbe principles set forth in its circular
note of July 3, 1900, and in a purely
friendly spirit toward the Chinese empire, aud all the powers now interested in the negotiations, desires to express its sense of impropriety, inexpediency and extreme danger to the
interests of China in considering any
territorial or financial arrangements,
at least without the full understanding and approval of all the powers
now engaged in negotiations. (Signed) HAY."
Tlie administration believes that
the second agreement between Russia
and China is in violation of the spirit
if not of tho letter of the general understanding to which a'l the powers
subscribed last summer, and the United States Is prepared to uso all its
moral suasion and influence to prevent
its  consummation.
Pekin, Marcli 20.���The foreign ministers will not meet again until the
committee is icady to report on
China's resources. The committee is
still hearing merchants, bankers and
others on the subject. The Australian contingent left hote this morning
for Taku and will sail for home tomorrow. A Japanese regiment is
starting today for Japan.

(SPECIAL. TO THE MINER.)
Victoria, B. C, March 26.���The day
in the legislature was spent in committee without any noteworthy changes,
with perhaps one exception. On the
suggestion of Smith Curtis, strongly
���upported.by Hawthorntwnite.of Nanaimo, a section was added to tin Met
alliferous Mines Bill requiring that
engineers iu charge of hoisting plants
arc required to work only eight hours.
Hawthornthwaite said inattention
of engineers was induced by weariness
und often the cause of an accident,
and he complimented Curtis on taking
a step for the protection of labor.
Under the same bill all mines shipping or treating ore in British Columbia will be obliged henceforth to supply a monthly statement of operations.
ONTARIO WIRINGS.
Ministers Will Edit   a Chatham Paper
���In the Legislature.
(SPECIAL, TO THE MINKIl.)
Toronto, March 26.���The government's liill to provide aid for the university of Toronto provoked a spirited debate in the legislature today on
the occasion of its second reading.
Ilnriourt, minister of education, explained the bill. Whitney followed,
taking the ground in most emphatic
terms, that tbe government had not
gone far enough in Its measure of relief and declaring that even now the
opposition would buck them up in giving all the debate asked for and would
allow the government to take credit
for the step. The bill was read u second time without division.
The $100,000 issue of civic deben-
tures were sold yesterday to AiueB *
Co., of Toronto, for 9103,8150 or at the
rate of 108*. The next best bid was
made by the Imperial Bank of Canada
which tendered for the securities at
103. Another tender Waa received for
practically the same amount, and tho
others wero but slightly below, That
of Ames & Co., financial agents of
Toronto, was accepted and the clvio
authorities wired tlie successful tenderers to this effect.
Tho excellent figure realized for tho
debentures speaks in fluttering terms
for the eredit of the city, At this time
when capital is chary of investments,
the city might havo been well satisfied to have received par for the securities nnd the premium came as a
pleasant surprise. As a matter of
fact, however, the purchaser has scur-
ed a splendid Investment. The debenture issue is equal to a first mortgage
on the entire city and as the entire
debenture debt is only about a tenth
of the assessed value of the real estate
in the city and a still smaller percentage of tho actual value of the improved real estate, it would he difficult to
liiMgine a more substantial investment. The action of the council in
consolidating the various debentuie
issues Into one issue uf respectable proportion doubtless helped to dispose of
tlie securities to advantage. Financial houses will bid eagerly for 8100,-
000 in debentures, when they take but
a languid Interest in half a dozen i>ep-
arate issues, even when the aggregate
is as large. The growth "of the city's
credit in the financial centers _f the
Dominion is Illustrated by tbe increasing value placed on civic debentures
year by year. In 1897 a 850,000 issue
sold at   98 cents   realizing 848,000.   In
1898 a 965,000 issue   brought 98,'4.    In
1899 a 860,000 brought 1(17, on this occasion the purchaser being a private
party who was especially anxious to
secure the securities. The financial
institutions in 1890 bid around 103,
one being KM, the fact being that at
that time tlie wave of prosperity was
at its highest ami capital was seeking
in vestment everywhere.
Mayor Fletcher and the members of
the council regard the price secured
from Ames .- Co. as very satisfactory

Sir Robert Hart's proposal to settle
china's liabilities by internal taxes
doea not met with favor hero either
officially or in the press. Count Von
Buelow is still of opinion that an increase in tea tolls would be the best
method, and Dr. Stonbel's mission to
London is partly intended to remove
England's objections to such a course.
The view said to be held at Washington that the United States rhould
receive 82f>, 000,000 as indemnity and
Germany 960,000.000 is unanmioudy
ridiculed by the German press of
every shade as unfair and not corresponding with the sacrifices made by
Germany,
THE CUP DEFENDER.
New Departures Embodied in the Craft
��� Launching April 20.
Glasgow, Marcli 20���The spars and
rigging of the Shamrock 11 are now
being prepared for setting up. They
include several new ideas One is thu
abolition of the lop mast and all top
mast fittings She will have a Hingle
metal spur, the largest ever fitted to
any ship,measuring from step to truck
148 feet This saves the extra weight
caused by the neeeessary overtiming
of the lower mast and top mast und
the weight of the housing gear and
giving also, it is  thought, a   stronger
and better braced spar. Tho Shamrock
II will be unable to havo ber top mast

wind, but this has happened only once
since the America Cup races began.
Mr. Wndd, the managing partner of

THEIR    DIFFERENCES   SETTLED.
If statements made in dispatches
both from tho east and coast points
respecting negotiations between the
C. r. R. and the Crow's Nest Coal
company are to be believed, an omio-
able settlement of the matter in dispute between the two corporations
over the application for the Crow's
Nest Southern railway has been reached. This, we take it, is a piece of
very good news. It means that the
coal company will be permitted to
pursue its own course in the development of its magnificent property on a
very large scale, and, furthermore,
that the C. P. R. will be given a free
hand with the 3,840 acres of coal lands
in the Crow's Nest district which it
received in addition to the subsidy it
obtained at the time the Crow's Nest
line was built. A great deal might
be said���a great deal probably will be
said���on the question of this "understanding" between the two corporations. We think, however, that it
is a matter for congratulation that
the controversy hns ended so happily
aud that assurance is given that the
interests of British Columbia are in no
wise likely to suffer because of such
arrangement.
THE OUTLOOK.
��� RS''
No one who has been watching the
trend of events for tho past few
months can fail to be impressed with
the conviction that the outlook for
Hritish Columbia is very ro6y indeed.
It now seems settled beyond all doubt
that the immense coal fields in the
Crow's Nest district will be developed
on a huge scale. What this means to
East Kootenay, and, in fact, to the
whole of southern Britisli Columbia,
may be left to the imagination���suffice
to say that an era of remarkable progress and prosperity will bo ushered
in if the statements referring
to contemplated undertakings made
by the officials of the coal
company are to be believed. Then
again, we think it may be taken as a certainty that the near future
will see the establishment at some
point in southern British Columbia of
a lead refinery, which will give a
great aud permanent stimulouB to the
mining industry and permit of the
thorough development of many properties whrch are now lying Idle. The
building of tbe Coast-Kootenay road,
which is now, ull admit, assured,
will also tend greatly to benefit the
Kootenays. Taken altogether we
think thero is every justification for a
feeling of confidence tbat stirring
times, fruitful in progress and prosperity, are immediately before us.
developed In   a   comprehensive   man.
ner.   Premier Dunsmuir In addressing
Sir Wilfrid Laurier on thlB Bubject on
the 28th   of   January   last,   concludes
his letter us   follows:    "1   beg to remind you again that the   pioviucc   of
Hritish   Columbia is  contributing   at
tlie present time   about   two   million
dollars to the Federal Treasury in excess   of  expenditure.    This   iu   itself
would seem sufficient   to   entitle   the
Province   to   receive very large subsidies for purposes of development; but
apart from that   altogether, it   is not
unreasonable to   assume thut,    if   the
developments suggested   were   carried
into effect, within   five yeais the population   dlreotly   resulting   therefrom
would be increased fifty thousand. At.
the piesent   tatc   of   taxation���which
per capita is, roughly   825 per   head���
such an increase   would   augment the
revenue to the Dominion by a million
and a quarter dollars annually, a sura
in itself,    together   with   one half   of
the present annual net contribution of
the Province to tbo Federal Treasury,
more   than   sullicicnt   within   fifteen
years to recoup the   Dominion   for its
share of the total outlay   necessary to
build three thousand miles of railway.
As   an   illustration   ot   the   rapidity
with which the population has  found
Its way  into   parts   of   the   Province
opened up by railways, the   most conspicuous example is that of Kootenay.
Within   ten   years   it   has   developed
from a wilderness to a   populated district, having numerous thriving towns
and villages producing largely in gold,
silver and copper, and contributing in
an important degree to   tbe   revenues
of both the Province and the Dominion.
This was alone made   possible by   the
railway and steamboat   lines, and the
numerous   minor   accessories   in   the
way of roads and trails which traverse
it in various directions.    If   the province of Britisli Columbia had returned
to it each   year a   fair   proportion   of
the net revenue   contributed, it could
itself undertake   the   p'o.lei?. ���'
way development, but I have lies,..ted
for tbe present to concur in a   suggestion that   has   been mndc to offer  to
the Dominion   a   commutation of  all
existing claims for   an   annual allowance of one million   dollars a year for
fifty years, to   be   applied to internal
development.    My   hesitation   is   due
not to the extravagance   of the proposal, because   I regard   it   as a wholly
reasonable   one,    under   the    circumstances, but to the apprehension   that
it would so seriously  disturb   presens
Federal relatione   as to be regarded at
impracticable.    Upon   mature consideration   the   delegation have  decided
to appeal upon the merits of our cause
to the Dominion   for such   a   measure
of increased expenditure, on the lines
suggested, as would fairly compensate
the province in future."
Now for the refinery !

CO-OPEltATION   IN   RAILWAY DEVELOPMENT.
A perusal of the argument presented
by Premier Dunsmuir nnd Hon. D. M.
EbertB to the Ottawa government in
favor of cooperution in ..railway development in BritiBh Columbia will
result, we think, in tlie conviction being established that a very strong case
has been made by our provincial representatives in support of their contentions. No one with a proper
knowledge of existing conditions
doubts for moment that a great injustice has been done tbe province
through the inadequate return for the
revenues contributed. The claims of
the province in this respect have from
time to time been pressed upon the
federal government, but only in a
half-hearted mnnner. Now, however,
something in the nature of a demand
���a demand supported by a powerful
argument���for better treatment has
been made and we do not doubt for un
instant that Sir Wilfrid Lauriur and
bis colleagues will be properly impressed with the reasonableness of our
complaints and take early steps to
remedy what iB in every sense a cry
ing grievance. Heretofore the people
of Eastern Canada have been loath to
sanction large expenditures on public
works in the Wust, but this has been
a blind policy; and the conviction is
apparently gradually dawning upon
them that they are vitally interested
jn seeing this country opened up and
The Nelson company of the Rocky
Mountain Rangers has settled down
to business in fine shape. It will
speedily rank as the crack military
curps of the Interior.
The spectacle of Senator Cox and T.
C. .haughnesay shaking bands over
the cold corpse of the Crows Nest
controversy must bring tears to tli*ij;-
eyes of Patriot John Houston.
The next time Patriot Houston gets
in and attempts to save the country
he should be left alone until the job
is finished. It was a shame to pull
him back just when he was hauling
Canada out of the grasp of James J.
Hill.
The Boers have rejected the peace
overtures and fighting has been renewed. This is a game John Bull can
play at pretty well, and perhaps it is
just us well that the Boers Should be
given their fill of it once and for   all.
There is nothing like kicking if you
want recognition of your claims.
The ministei of education has given
a promise thnt Nelson is to be treated
in the same manner as Victoria and
the lnrger cities in the matter of
Bchool buildings.
J. II. Ross, Ogilvie's successor in
the Yukon is a very sensible man.
He says be is going to assume his duties "with an open mind, prepared to
meet conditions as he finds them and
take advantage of the experience of
men who know the district."
The announcement of the provincial
government that it desires to co-operate with the federal authorities on a
mining commission augurs well for
the future of the industry. There is
not the slightest doubt but that the
Laurier government will heartily cooperate.

is all right, but you want something
thut will relieve and cure the more
severe und dangerous results of throat
and lung troubles What shall you

.1. A. Macdonald, the linker street

tills week to a most interesting display of easter confectionery. The contents are well worth an examination
from the artistic and material standpoints.
THE NEW WARDEN���

a mod slide-
as the morning train out of Nelson
on the N. .t F. S. line was proceeding
to Five Mile Point yesterday it en
countered a small mud slide at Robert's ranch. The train slowed down
to pass through, but wns caught mid
way by another and heavier slide. As
a result two cars were cut off aud left
there. The 0. P. R. cleaned off the
slide, but another came during the afternoon and the engine of the work
train operating between the gravel pit
and the city wus off the track for several hours.

THE HYPNOTIST'S SHOW-
The entertainment nt the opera

proved to be as onloyable as on the
opening night. This morning at 10:30
o'clock Professor Payne will put u subject to sleep in William Bnnte* ':

NO LOW FARES-
E. J. Coyle, of Vancouver, general
western passenger agent of the C. P.
K.. was in the city yesterday on a flying trip. He states that the reduced
rates on local lines are to go into
effect on April 1 as announced.
When asked as to whether the C. P.
U. would errant low rutes for the Pan-
Americun exposition, Mr. Coyle remarked that the matter was now under consideration in tbe east, but
that it was unlikely any lower rate
than tare and a half would be granted
for the lirst few months of the exposition at least, Later, if the affair did
not prove a nnaucial success, pressure
might be brought to bear on thu railroads and a lower fare granted.
MINING RECORDS���
W. It. Seatle, who recently purchased the Houston block, is acquiring
mining properties. At the recorder's
ollice yesterday the Golden City, Lilly
I)., and Sunnysirle claims in the Forty

Ilelvin and Larry Gallagher, respectively, consideration nominal. The
Gold Note claim on Forty Nine creek
was transferred to II. E. Newton by
Ed. Applewhaite.
ROUGH SPOTS.
Good Food Smoothes Them Over.
"There is probably nothing in the
world that produces as much happi
ness us tire peculiar feeling thnt comes
over tho mind when well fed with
nourishing food that pnrticularly rebuilds the brain, and makes everything on earth have a rosy tint. Ambition is renewed, spirits are of the
most sanguine, and confidence has restored that feeling within us which
curries us over the rough places."
So writes a  man who was built   up
from a wretched invalid to a fine con
dition of health by   changing his diet
and using Grape-Nuts Food.
"There is no sense of enjoyment
eqnal to that of being well physically
and mentally. I can hardly realize
thut such a transportation has been
made. From being ill tempered and
disagreeable I have changed to something like enjoyment of the society
that I had grown to avoid. From feeling that life was not worth living, I
now feel that I would like to live always. I enclose a sample of my hand
writing showing my nervous condition
before using Grape-Nuts Food, and
you can compare it with my signature
to this letter."
The writing done while he was in a
nervous ill fed condition is shown
on nn old time cheek and reports a
series of dates when he was absent on
account of sickness. His signature
was made in lines that consist of minute waves or wiggles, showing the
desperately wenk condition, while the
signature to the letter is remarkable
for its clear penmanship.
It is the old story over and over
again that when a man is broken
down because he exhausts the gray
matter in the nerve cells and brain
from over work and improper food,
he can rebuild that gray matter by
using Grapo-Niits, for this food contains Phosphate of Potash direct from
the natural grains of the deld, and
this, united with tbe Albumen of the,
grains make the only combination
that, will rebuild this peculiar soft I
gray substance, I
ALBANIPLEASED HIM���
During his recent visrt in the east
Mr. Will Irvine attended one of the
Albani concerts in Montreal and says
that be enjoyed the singing of Canada's prima donna more than he did
when he heard her five years ngo. "I
don't consider myself a musical critic
by any means," said Mr. Irvine yesterday, "but I know when a singer
suits me and to say tbat I wus com-
pletsly carried away by Albani's singing is putting it mildly. For ten
days before hei first concert in Windsor Hill in Montreal it was impossible to secure a sent, so great was the
demand. Because of this Madame Albani consented to give a matinee performance on the following Saturday
afternoon. It was then I heard her in
company with a throng tlrat filled the
hall, standing room and all. Nelson
people are to be congratulated upon
the opportunity they will have of
hearing hci in their own city. She
has associated with|her other artists of
unusual ability and should draw the
largest audience the Nclsou opera
house ever held." While in New
York Mr. Irvine also heard Melba in
Faust, William Gillett in "Sherlock
Holmes," witnessed the production of
"Ben Hur" whicli ran in New York
during the entire season of 1899-1900
and has been running throughout the
present winter in Boston, and saw all
the stars playing in New York at the
present time. In fact be didn't overlook anything that was worth seeing.
