Through  Beautiful   Country
and Past Prosperous
Republic, Wash., April 12.--The
formal opening of the Kettle Valley
line today passed off very success-1
fully. There were 250 passengers on
hoard the spscial train ot four coaches
which left Orand Forks at 10.20 a.in-
Tho trip only occupied three hours
and a half. This is regarded as a good
record considering the newness of the
roadbed and a delay of nearly an
hour near Ferguson. Large crowds
assembled at Nelson, Wash., aud
Curlew, whore the excursionists received an enthusiastic reception.
Many of the visitors enjoyed their
flrst view of the Kettle River valley.
The scenery is superb. The Orand
Forks brass band accompanied the ex
cursion. The guests of the railway
company included prominent citizens
of Spokane, Kossiand, Nelaon, P.. C,
and other cities. Grand Forks also
sent a large contingent. The trip to
Republic proved uneventful.
Tho last spike was jointly driven by
T. W. Holland, genera] manager, anc
W. 0. Morris, assistant general
The record of construction of
Kettle Valley lines is regarded
noteworthy, as the tirst sod was
turnod until June 5 last, and
entire work was not untie! enn tract
until August 1. This iMest international link is 48,85 miles long. The
necessity of establishing nilway
communication between Grand Forks
ano Republic had long been obvious,
more especially since the failure of
the various methods for treating the
Republic ores at home by various
adaptations of tbe cyanide process.
Metallurgists have declared that ideal
results could be attained by blending
the silicious ores of Republic vt ith the
sulphide ores of the Boundary. This
process, they averred, would prove
mutually beneficial, the Uoundary
ores helping to flux the Republic ore,
and the latter by their superior richness contributing to enrich the matte.
Hithetto the long and expensive
haul from Republic precluded the
possibility of any but the highest
grade ores from being treated at
Grand Forks and only shipments of
picked ores, averaging in some instances $500 per ton, have been made.
These values cannot be regarded as
characteristic of Republic, which,
broadly speaking, is a camp with millions of tons of low grade ore. I rob-
ably an average would be $12 per ton.
The northern terminus is situated
in tbe Ruckle Addition at Grand
Forks, just south of the city limits.
After crossing tbe C P.R. track, the
railway, following an air line, traverses the Kettlo river valley south to
the international boundary, less than
four miles distant. Here is crosses
the river, and passing through the
village of Nelson, Wash., ascends the
west bank of tho river over nine miles
to a point one and one half miles
north of Curlew, Wash., and recrosses
the Kettle on a 05-foot Howe truss.
| Leaving the river at Curlew, on its
Southeasterly descent fiom Canada,the
line continues south through the wide
and open valley of Curlew creek to the
north end of Curlew lake. Thence
following the north shore of that
beautiful sheet of water, tbe road
begins the nine mile ascent in a south
westerly direction to the summit,
which is overcome through a natural
pass. Two miles beyond,on the oppo-
stie slope, the line taps the Tom
Thumb mine before reaching the
Monntan Lion. Then the railway
swings around the mountain from
that point, along Granite creek to the
Morning Glory aud Quilp,before going
north up Eureka creek and passing the
Ban l'oil, Bodie, Hlack Tail, Lone
Pine, 8llver Dollar, Knob Hill and
other well known properties.
From an engineering point of view
the route was almirably chosen and
great credit is due the chief engineer
John A. Manly.
exceeding    sections    of   four    miles
The dominating spirit of this enterprise is Tracy W. Holland, mayor of
Grand Forks. Mr. Holland was tlie
tirst to perceive the commercial possibilities of a railway bttween the
American camp and the Canadian
smelting center,and to its acoo'nplith-
ment he has devoted his time and
energies with rare singleness of purpose lor nearly two years, and with
great diplomacy were the preliminary
negotiations for charter and right of
way carried through. He received
a oie assistance from W, C. Morris, ol
Republic, who now occupies the
position of general counsel and assistant general manager. After the
organization of the Rebublie and
Grand Forks railway (now known as
lhe Kettle Valley Lines), Mr. Holland
beoame its general manager. The
oapital required for building the road
was raised in thc east, the presidont
of the enterprise being Hon. .7. R.
Stratton, provincial secretary of
The Kettle Valley Lines have
entered -nto a contract with the mine
owners of Republic for the transportation of ore to the Granby Smelter in
Grand Forks. According to contract,
the freight and treatment rato must
not execeed $0.50 per ton. At the outset a tonnage of 400 tonB daily is
expected. This amount can be easily
absorbed here, as the local smelters
has a daily capacity of 1,500 tons, and
two additinal furnaces are to be
Installed at an early date; moreover,
the ores of Republic, besides being
smelted in the furnaoes oan be utilized
as converter linings.
Within a year the tonnage of
Republic, it is believed, will reach
1 0(10 tons daily, as the opening of the
road is certain to have a stimulating
effect upon development work. The
road is splendidly equipped with rolling stook including pressed steel ore
cars and passenger coaches. An arrangement for an interchange of
through traffie at Grand Forks witb
the O.P.R. has been effected.
Manager of Waterloo,(Jump McKinney
and Miner at Mother Lode Killed.
Greenwood. April 12.���A fatal accident occurred at the Mother Lode
mino yesterday in which George
Johnson lost his life. He was loading
a deep hole for blasting n quarry and
it is supposed that the tamping rod
dropped causing the cbaige to explode. Part ol^nis head was blown
off and one of bis hands injured. He
lived an hour after the nccident.
It is reported here that Copt. W. W.
Howe, manager of the Waterloo, at
Camp McKinney, was killed yesterday. He was in the shaft when something fell on his head, causing death.
Few particulars have reached here.
Miners Demand lnureased Pay For
Lower Seams.
Nanaimo, April 12.���A mass meeting
of miners held in the open air this
afternoon, debated for several hours
the refusal of the New Vancouver Cou!
Co, to grant an increase of pay for the
lower seam men in the Protection
mine. The meeting took no action beyond deciding that the lower seam
should not be worked at the present
scale, a course to which the company is
agreeable. The crisis is consequently
at an ond.

Working   Glasses  Ready  to
Fight for Fair Franchise.
Rrussels, April 12.���The week ends
with the lull before the storm and the
coming week may witness momentous
events. A general strike has been
ordered and the result will bang upon
the levision of the constitution which
comes before the Chamber of Deputies.
The Socialists maintain that the franchise is unfair in that the working-
men can have but two votes whereas
the rich ian usually qualify for three
or more, while the clerics control the
rural vote. A motion for the revision
of t^e constitution has been submitted
to the chamber nnd if this is referred
to a committee it may cause a lull,but
tho fear prevails that the report of
tkis committee would be thrown out.
In almost every mining and industrial district it has been decided to
strike on Monday and it is reported
tbat already tbero are 20,000 men out.
It is doubtful whether the strike will
embrace Brussels. The government is
very anxious and infantry and cavalry
nave been drafted to various points.
The workmen are said to have 17,000
transformed rifles in their possession,
while revolvers have been sold to
them at low rates and in large numbers during the past few months.
Van der Volde, the leader of the
movement, is an interesting figure and
has great influence over the masses.
He announces they are determined to
go ahead until they have obtained a
reivaion of tho present electoral   law.
The workmen have only 500,000
votes out of 2,000,000 whereas with
one mau one vote thoy would have
400,000 out of 1,200,000. lie states that
100,0000 men have agreed to strike
on Monday but the men will act in
tbe best interests of their respective
districts and there will he no strike
where tho textile industry is undergoing a crisis. There will, however,
be demonstrations. The workmen of
Brussels will hold a monster demonstration on Monday and while he has
urged them to be pacilio, minor conflicts may occur as such a orowd is
riitticult to control on account of the
agressive attitude of the police. The
anarchists he thought had little influence among the workmen and while
the insult to the king was unpiemedi-
tated it was approved in that it showed the king that they were in earnest
as to revision. Though the Socialists
were in favor of a republic, their immediate claim was to have the constitution revised.
Arrive From Klerksdorp l.y Special
Separate Trains.
Pretoria, April 12.���Acting President Schalkburger, Generals Botha,
Meyer, Delarey and Dowet and Mr.
Steyn, arrived here tbia morning from
Klerksdorp. Tho   Transvaal    and
Orange Free State delegates journeyed
on spearate special trains, both of
which were through, the delegates
traveling all night. The trains arrived close together. The two parties
are now lodged together here but are
quartered in separate houses.
Momentous Matters Evidently Occupy
King and Cabinet.
London, April 12.���A telegram to
the Exchange Telegraph Co., from
Dover, savs that a King's messenger,
with despatches for the War office
arrived this evening from the continent hy way of Calais.
It was ascertained late tonight that
another cabinet rnoeling had been
arranged for tomorrow afternoon.
Hospital Authorities Have Decided to Discontinue Maternity Ward.
Physicians Think It a Valuable Adjunct of the Institution.
Trenton,Aoril 12.���The Union Railway, Power and Electric Co., capital
$0,000,000, was incorporated hero
today. The company is to furnish
and general deal in electrical, chemical and mechanical power.
The di'cision of the managing board
of the Kootenay Lake General hospital to discontinue the maternity
ward of the boppital is a matter as tc
which there is difference of opinion.
The ward has been iu operation for
about a year and during that time
quite a number of eases have bean
treated thore.
Members of the hospital board
speaking of the reasons lor its discontinuance, say it is the large cost
involved This work has been conducted in a separate building which
was originally designed for a home
for the nursing staff. Occasional
maternity cases ;had been treated in
the hospital previous to the erection of
this huilding and when it was completed it was appropriated for this
and wns never used fur the purpose it
was intended for.
As to the results of taking maternity work the members of the board
state that they found that it entailed
tlie increase of the nursing staff by
two nurses constantly, besides additional work on the others of the
staff, and they had to engage rooms
elsewhere lor the nurses at a cost of
$25 a month lor rent, besides heating
and care of the building thus obtained, and this should properly be
charged against the cost of maintenance of the maternity ward. It was
also found that the ward was being
made use of as a crnvenience by thoso
who could have and ought to have
provided for tho patients at their own
homes, and it was also found that the
percentage of collections was not
what it should have been. Another
reason urged for the discontiuance of
the ward was that it interfered with
the avocation of a number of private
nurses who make tlieir living by attending such cases. These cases wer;
not for a general hospital it was
urged and so snonld never have been
taken at any time. The chief reason
for the discontinuace was the cost,
which was much greater than for
any othor class of cases and moie
than the hospital could stand.
The cost to the hospital was even
greater than it mould be to attend to
the case in a private house, and very
much moro on an average than the $20
that waB the fee, so that giving the
attendance at that price was merely
making a present of the difference to
the patient. For those cases which
the nospital might be obliged to take
it would be oheaper for the board to
engage a room and a trained private
nurse than to keep the ward open for
the reception of all the cases that
came along.
The doctors, on the other hand, are
almost unanimous in regretting tbe
discontinuance of the maternity ward.
One of the physioians said ne was surprised at the decision of the board.
Tho department was one that was
much needed, tho surroundings wero
good there for tho treatment of the
casos, better than they were in all
but tho best furnished homes, and it
was necessary for tho care of cases
outside of the city, At present he
knew of eases, ono from Pilot Bay
and another from across thc lake, that
wished adraissi )n ; and there was no
physician at Ainsworth. Theie was
also a number of eases coming in from
the mines and from other places in
the vicinity of Nelson. He considered
the maternity ward the most important department of tho hospital. Even
[or coses from the citv a trained nursu
was not always available and It was
a great satisfaction to feel that in any
event there was always a good place
to wnich the cases could be taken.
The cire of these cases was a part of
hospital work and it was the dutv of
the board to provide for them, llefore
tbe ward was started there was great
ditliculty frequently in gelling quarters for the patients. It was urge.! as
I iii.reie���unable and unfiir that these
leases should be refesed. If an intnxi-
I cated mau got hurt bis admission to
Itho hokital tumid be forced whether he
had any money or not and he would
get tho best cf care,but now tbe board
I is keeping out thc class of cases
I which it is most Important and
charitable that tbey should be provided for.
I As to the mainteanee of a private
'hospital for such cases this would be
too risky an undertaking or anyone to
take. The fixed charges would be
too high. The ward had been pretty
well ocaupied since it was established
and the prospects were that a steadier
sucession of cases would be offered in
th future than in the past. The rate
at first charged, 81.1, nas too low, but
at 820 per week he thought that the
losswould not be in greater proportion
to tho total number than in any other
class   of ease.
Tho expense of the maintenance of
the ward could be lessened by having
it a part of the building. Now it is a
separate building wbich entails much
additional work in tno carrying of
food and everything that is needed
from tbe main buliding. The opinion
of the physicians is that particularly
in this district owing to the distribution of the population the maternity work should be undertaken and
that it was an essential of hospital
work. The physicians were supposed
to know something about hospitals,
but in times past, anil now, they had
not been consulted in any way about
what was required for the hospital.
JT. DeWItt Talmage  Passed
Peacefully Away Last
Practical   Steps  Taken   Toward   Site
and   Finances
A meeting was called last ev3iiing
in the board of trade rooms to discuss
the ways an means for putting in a
race track at Nelson and a number of
those interested in the project attended. Among thoso present wero Mayor
Fletcher, F. Starkey, Blake Wilson,
A. J. Mirks, Dr. Armstrong, Hugh
Cameroon, Chris Morrison, Jas. McPhee, Jacob Dover, E. C. Daviscn, J.
3   Malone, and II. A. MoDermott.
Mayor Fletcher was appointed
chairman, and 0. Morrison, secretaiy.
Mayor Fletcher said on taking the
chair that he supposed all present
were aware of the object ol the meeting. Io conneeuon with getting tbe
land on the city's patk allowance the
difficulty would be iu getting an
agreement made for a sufficient number of years to make it worth the
while of those going into it, although
he supposed ,hore would bo somo way
of arranging it. On a lough estimate
the cost of getting a half mile raco
track levelled on the site mentioned
would be about $5,000 and fencing
probably $1,000 more.
Considerable discussion followed the
mayor's remarks. The merits of this
location compared with a site near the
end of tho tramway line, and two
sites on the Nelson-Granite road were
talked over and it was Anally decided
that a committee should he appointed
to look over the sites and havo an
estimate as to cxpenso prepared by an
engineer, their report to be presented
to a meetiug to bo_called at an early
Tho following were then appointed
as a committee: Mayor Fletcher,
Blako Wilson, Hugh Cameron, Dr.
Armstrong and J. J. Malone.
Many of those present wero in favor
of the site near the end of tbe tramway if it could be arranged, but it
was pointed out by Dr. Armstrong
that owing to this piece having been
surveyed and laid out in lots, some
of which had been sold and built on.
that it would cost over 830,000 for tbe
part wanted.
Mayor Fletcher staled that If the
park site was taken it would bo a
valuable Bsset und would increase io
value ech year. Within three years at
the outside the land at present usel as
a recrcatio 1 ground will have to be
usod for ordinary city purposes and
will no loiger bo available for recreation purposes, and if this race track
was put io by tbat time it would be
in good shape. It was in a very pretty
location and only a mile from the
postoflico corner.
It was decided that as soon as the
cost of the track had been ascertained
and a proper site selected, that a company shold be formed to go ahead
with it as quickly as possible.

Remains  to   Be   Burled   In
the Family Plot at
Washington, April 12.���Hev. T.
Dewitt Talmage, the noted I'resbv-
teriau clergyman, died at 9 o'clock
tonubt at bis residence in this city.
It has been evident for several days
that there was no hope of his recovery
and the attending physicians so informed the family. The patient gradually grew weaker until life passed
away so quietly that oven tho members of the family, all of whom were
watching at the bedside, hardly knew
that all was over. The immediate
cause of delth was inflammation of
the brain.
Dr. Talmage was in poor health
when he started away from Washington for Mexico, for a vacation and
rest six weeks ago. He was then
suffering from influenza and serious
catarrhal conditions. Since his return
to Washington some time ago be has
been quito ill. Until Thursday, however, fears for his death were not
entertained. Thc last rational would
uttered by him were on the day preceding the marriage ol his daughter
when he said: "Of course I know
yon, Maud," since then he has leen
unconeious. At Dr. Talmage's besides
bis wife were the members of hie
family, Rev. Frank Dowitt Talmage.

While arrangments for the funeral
have not been finally completed tho
family have about decided to have tbo

A tendenoy   exists   among a few   to
look on the gloomy side  of conditions
in this section, and they hy constantly
wailing over them,   and by assertions
that the country ia going to  the  dogs
sometimes   bave   influence enough   to
give the  more  hopeful  and enthusiastic  an  occasional  bad  half  hour.
The  pessimist   may   be   met  on  the
street, in the hotels,   en the cars, and
if   he   only   followed   his  legitimate
business with the some energy   as  he
does   his constant endeavor to impress
others with the   idea   that  conditions
are not  as   good ai they might be, he
would   soon   become   wealthy.    As  a
matter of fact the   improvements  that
are in a progress, the   strikes tbat are
being constantly made,tiie increase in
the ouptut of ore,   the  additions  that
are   being   made   to     old    reduction
plants   and   the   new   ones   that  are
being   built, tee extension of  branch
Hues here and there   and the  general
advance   that   is  being   made on all
sides  would   a few years  siuce have
resulted   lu   a   boom of largo proportions.     The   Kootenays and Yaie   are
producting moro ore today   than   ever
in their history and were nover better
able to stand on   their  o��n  resources
and   to   go   ahead   steadily   than   at
present.     The   real   teat of a mineral
producing country is   its   output  and
when in the history of  iiast and West
Kootenay   and   Yale was the production anywhere neuily as lurge as it is
at preser.t?   Ibis fact of itself should
be   sufficient to   sileuoe the croakers,
hut   thoy   love   to give uttetances  to
tbeir  jeremaids   too   .veil to he quiet
unless they ure gagged.
A glance at the conditions as the are
is sufficient to cuuvince any reasonable being tbat during the present
yelt the output of ora will be increased at least lit) p?i cent, over that
of last year,
Beginning with the Boundary
country and what do we find there?
Take the semlter at Greenwood. Its
capacity has just been doubled and
from now on the plant will reduce
800 tonB of ore per day, where hitherto
it has treated only 4ii() tons per diem.
The Pyritie smelter, nenr Greenwood,
has been taken over by the company
which is operating the Sunset mines
and will soon be reducing from 250 to
300 tons a day. A lew months ago
the Granby -smelter at Grand Forks
was treating 150 tons ot ore ter day
and now it is handling 1,5110 tons.
A railway wa9 yesterday opened
which connects Republic with the
smelters of tho Boundary and other
plants in Southern British Columbia
and many thousand tons of ore will be
hauled over it during lhe present year
to this bide of tlio lino and be ol
distinct benefit of the places which are
provided with plants suitable for the
handling of tht ore. Tho Snowsboe
compuny at Phoenix has many
thousands tons of oro in sight and
purposes adding another reduction
plant to those already looated ln tbe
Boundary. Besides this work is
being prosecuted with gootl results on
a number of properties. The Boundary
output so far this year is 1111,5112 tons.
In the Nelson division the Hall
Mines smelter and the Ymir stamp
mill nnd cyani.ling plant are being
operated steadily and with good results. In the Ymir mine the ore has
been encountered at a depth of 1,000
feet, wV,ch guarantees it a long life
ot productiveness. Tho Arlington,
near Erio, is shipping about 1,000 tons
of ore per month, Tho Queen,near the
Yellowstone, promises to make one of
tho most valuable properties in tho
Ymir district. The Bayonne group,
on the east slope of tbe Yinir range-
is boing developed and promises to
make a property of great merit. Tha
Silver King continues to give a good
output, and there is a great deal of
development going on in other proper"
ties which promises to yield good
results. The Nelson division will improve on the output of lust year.
The Slocan lias been the theater ol a
number of Important discoveries at

! Gibson, Fisher Maiden, Monitor,
Rambler-Cariboo, Sunstt, Payne and
other mines never had better showings
of ore than now. The shipments from
the Slocan so far tbis year ure 7,015
tons which is about up to the avearge
although the price of silver and Had
are net as high as they should be.
Should the price of these metals advance, which is not unlikely in the
immediately future, the Sioean would
have a veritable boom. The Slocan
will do belter this year than last
even under present conditions.
The Lardeau section is to have its
inningB this year. Hitherto the minerB
have been handicapped by a lack of
railway transportation and only the
higher grade ores could be shipped
owing to the excessive cost of haulage. Within iDtitit.li a railway will be
completed and begin hauling ore from
the mines there, lt is one of the richest mining sections of British Columbia the output this year should be
more 'ban double that of last. A
small smelter has bteo built at Ferguson and will be blown in within a
few days. This will he of great benefit
to the Lardeau mine owners who are
operating properties as it will
enable them to have their ore treated
within a short distance of the mine.
A larger smelting plant will be put in
just aB soon aB conditions justify it.
The iron mines near Kitchener
promises to be the scene of a great
deal ol activity tbis year. The syndicate wbich is operating them has
already expended about $125,000 in tbe
purchase of properties and last summer $50,000 was devoted to development to determine the quantity of
iron ore available, there being no
doubt about the quality. This icar it
is anticipated that a much larper sum
will be devoted to development and
when this is done, and all of Ihe conditions are found to he satisfactory,
large plants lor the making of iron
and steel aie to be erected. The enterprise at Kitchener is regaided as one
ot the most imporant yet undertaken
in the province. It promises to give
employment to au army of men
In East Kootenay a smelter is boing
erected by the Sullivan Group mines,
which is intended to reduoe the ore
Irom the mines of the company erecting it, and as much more us may be
received from the North Star, St.
Eugene and othei East Kootenay
mines. As soon as tbo smelter is in
operation work will be started on a
lead renfiery and a plant for corroding lead, Thia enterprise will be of
the utmost benefit to East Kootenay
as it will increase the profit of tbe
mine ownar a9 he will not be compelled to pay so much for the haulage
of ore to reduction plants as heretofore, and his profits will be larger.
East Kootenay during the last half
ol the year should make a good
Further east at Fernie the ouptut of
the Crow's Nest Pass ooal mines
whicb at the commencement ol last
year was about 1,000 tons a day, bas
been increased to 3,000 tons. Whon
the Crow's Nest Southern railway is
finished to a connection with the
Great Northern main line there will
r,e an increased market for coal and
coke produced in the Crow's Nest Pass
and the quantity of coal mined and
cuke made will be mateiially increased. The number of men employed in
coal mining and coke making is
already large and with the augmented
market will be much larger.
In the Kossiand camp the production of ore is about the same as it was
befure the strike began early last year
nnd averages about 8,000 tons per
week witb every prospect ot increasing with each month. Tbe output
will certainly be twice that of 1001
and Rossland is now in good condition. At Trail a lead refinery is
being erected from which pig lead
will be turned out within tbe next
three or four weeks. This plant will
turn out the llrst pig lead in Canada
and will be the start of what in time
will be an important industry.
In tbo Similaameen section there is
considerable activitiy in the way of
developing lode and coal minus and
by tho time the railroad roaches there
it is certain that there will be a large
tonnage ol oro available for shipment
With a growing output, more men
employed than ever, with railroads
beiug constructed which will open up
large areas of valuable territory, with
old reduction plants being increased
in size and new ones building, there
is nothing to warrant the gloomy
view which some take ol the situation. Wbile it is true that tbe boom
day are over and that everything must
now stand on its merits, it is also
obvious thut thc growth in tho future
will be steady, reliable and sure and
as the result of the really solid and
splendid merits of the country, there
bas been a slump in the price ul
silver, Copper and lead, but the u ur-
ket is recovering from the effect ot
this and prices should soon go t"
somewhere nenr tbeir old figures. This
view is concurred in by some of the
best informed operators in the rnotal
raarKets.     From the foregoing resume

Hon. Smith Curtis had tivo bills
pending before the legislaturetlesigued
to do away with actions against companies for failure to register and
otherwise comply with the law. The
provisions have been taken advantage
of extensively of late, it is elnimed,by
persons who desired to make money
out of the companies which have
been negligent. When the b.lls
camo up in the house Hon. Mr. Frer
tice declared they weie out of oroer
as they^dealt with the imposing of
and disposition of penalties. Hon.Mr.
Eberts said ho agreed with the principles of the bills and contemplated introducing one on somewhat similar
lines. It is h'jpcd that the lion, gen-
ertloman will carry out his intention
at the earliest possible moment lor the
penalties do not at all fit the crime so
tar as violations ol somo of the clauses
of the Companies' act aro ooncerned
and the sooner they are eliminated
from the aet the better it will be for
the mining and other corporations of
the province.
During lhe course of a recent debate
iu the honse on tho bill to amend the
Steam Boilers Inspection Act, Mr.
Curtis very properly objected to
ownera of boilers who insure tfiein
[rora hjving to pay a government inspection fee. This, he snid, was in
line with the government's pin-picking policy whenever capitalists wero
oonuerned. lt seemed to be the policy
of the government, he declared, to
annoy and discourage everyone who
proposed investing capital in tbe
province. The boilers of those who
insure them are regularly ant! rigidly
inspected by an inspector for the com-
pany whieh insures them, If the
boilers are defective they are condemned. When this is done it is hardship to be compelled to pny the fees
exacted by the government inspector.
Tho law could be so framed as to
exempt insured boilers fiom inspec-
tiou by the government ofllcial. The
object sought by inspection is to protect life and property from tlie exploding of defective steam boilers and this
is accomplished by thu thorouuli system   of inspection put into   vogue   by

It is reported, says the Kootenaian,
that W. W. Warner has mnde an important and rich strike on the Wonderful mine at Sandon, having struck
three feet ot solid ore.
The Knotenaian says that it is reported that the placer gravels on Copper crojk rnn from 15 tu 20 cents
and occasionbliy 25 cents to the ton.
A lot ol material was shipped f rom
Knslo on Thursday evening.
Rawhiding, says the Lardeau Eagle,
has ceased from the Nettie L, The
trails are in such condition that
rawhiding is impossible. Ii is ex-
pcctcil that the Nettie L. will break
all Lardcao records as an ore shipper
next ssason. In the mine there is 200
Ieet of Btoping ground that haB not
yet been touched.
W. G. Robb, manager of the Wellington mine at Whitewater, was in
town this week, says the Kootonaian.
He reports the mine looking well,
Kor the last shipment of IS 1-2 tons
the net returns were $l,5ti2.37, being
238 1-2 ounces silver, 44.10 per cent,
lead and 19,1 zino. . This ore was
from n body recently struok on the
lower lead, which is from 1 to 2 feet
wide with every indicalion of permanency. Work has I een suspended on
the new strike owing to surface water
bnt will be resumed shortly. The
force are at present busy in tbe upper
workings doing development work.
Reports from the Franklin group on
the Cascade slope near tbe head of
Meadow oieek, south of Lardo river
are of an encouraging character. A
snaft was sunk on a surface showing
SO foot deep and a crosscut made for
ten leet. The ore body was found to
be in place und two and a half feet
wide between well defined walls.
Work baa been done on three or four
claims in the group and the lead
found to be stroug between the same
sort of walls. Assays give 05 ounces
silver, CO per cent, lead and 88.40 in
gold to the ton. It is intended to push
development work during the balance
of the year.
Some Interesting Facts Abont the
Great Actor and His Family,
Frederick Warde, the eraineut notor,
is an Englishman by birth, having
been born in Wardingtoo.Oxfordshire,
England, Feb. 21, 1351. lie was educated for the law and early in his
youth apprenticed to a firm of barristers. Reading law, however, was
not adapted to his taste so he ran
away to go upon the stage. Ilia first
appearances did not indicate tbe
least bit of ability but he persevered
and soon made rapid strides and was
regarded one of the cleverest leading
men in the English provinces. Early
in his career he supported the famous
J. L. Toole, when Sir Henry Irving
waB a mmember of the company also.
Later he became loadiug man of the
Princess theatre in Manchester and
was brought to America by the famous
Manchester manager, Mr. Calveit, to
appear in the notable revival of Henry
Fifth at Booth's theatre in New York
City. Afterwards Mr. Warde supported
Adelaide Ntihon, John McCullough,
Kdwiu Booth, Lawrence llurrett and
others. Twenty-one years ago Mr.
Warde started as a star himself and
haa steadily progressed until now he is
justly regarded as the foremoBt exponent of the classic and Shakespearean
drama in Ameriua. Mr. Wurde is a
man of great culture and attainment
and a profound Shakespearean scholar.
His lectures bofore colleges and literary societies on the subjeot of Shakespeare and His Plays, have attracted
widespread attention Bud have done
moie than anything els e to stimulate
the present Shakespearean enthu siasm
that exists in the United States.
Personally Mr. Warde ls a man of
attractive qualities aud distinguished
appearance. He is deeply interested
in his profession and everything that
tends to the development of tbe drama
and the Btage. He encourages all
native dramatists nud has produced
more new plays than almost any other
actor. He is .. man of family and
very domestically inclined. He bus a
handBo.ne winter residence in
Brooklyn, N.Y., and a handsome villa
in Sullivan county, N. Y., where he
spends his summers. Mr. Warde bas
two {.Sons and two daughters, His
eldest son is associated in his management and his youngest son is a promising young actor in Mr. Richard
Mansfield's company. His eldest
daughter is not associated witb the
dramatic profession but bis youngest
daughter Misa May Warde is a handsome and clover young actress and
member of his company. She will be
seen here as Flora, a Danseuse, in
Tho Mountebank, and as Cordelia in
King Lear.
Mr. Warde's favorite pastime Is his
pleasure hours is fishing. He is an
enthusiastic angler and several Nel-
sonites are figuring on organizing a
party to lot tho distinguished visitor
to thrasb the atreama hereabouts.

Old One Made Over by Grape-Nuts.
A delicious food that is nourishing
for both mother and infant may be
depended upon to lit otner people.
This mother's story in interesting.
"My baby is now a line robust little
fellow two years and six months old.
but I had a dreadful time with him
at llrst. I could not nurse him because'
I was so weak 1 did not have the milk
fur hiin, so 1 gave him different kinds
ol foods, but lie was crying nearly all
of the timo and would vomit after
every meal.
Bis condition worked on my nevres
dreadfully and 1 called in Dr. Campbell. After iuquiiing carefully int'i
the case he Hitid, 'You send at once for
some Grape-Nuts, tako four tenspoon-
fuls in p. cup of hot milk on going to
bed, also feed your buby on some of
the food in hot milk.'
Well I followed tbe doctor's advice
with good results at once. I could
nnrse my baby and he began to improve Immediately I myself, got strong
and well very rapidly.
The neighbors were of course, interested and they wonld always say,
'How last you ure improving,' 'How
the little boy grows,''fie don't look
like the same baby, what are you
feeding him'." So I have had to tell
them one and al] how Grare-Nnls
have brought us both back to health.
I wish other mothers knew of the
value of this food,"

Trail smelter, is a guest at the Hume.
Mr. Moore says the lead refinery will
be ready for operation about May
15th. Work is being pushed on the
structure and the machinery with the
object of having it ready on that date.
At first the capacity will be about 1.1

capacity of the plant can be largely
augmented by udditions to the plant
which will not prove costly.

Alexander McMillan, M.D., a prominent physician of Lansing,Michigan,
writes: "On three cases I have tested
Herpicide for dandruff and the result
has been all that conld be desired."
Herpicide ia made upon an entirely
new principle, that is, tbat dandruff
and falling hair are caused from a
microbe that infests the hair bulb,
and. by destroying tne microbe one's
hair is bound to grow luxuriantly.
Herpicide is the onlv hair rafnedy,
tbat claims to, and really does destroy
