Paris Amused at the Letters
of a Poet to an Actress.
Paris, March 15.���The Parisians
are keenly interested in thc development of a pretty quarrel between
Sarah Bernhardt and Catulle Mendes,
the author and poet, about the production of the latter's poetical drama,
Sainte Tnerese, which had been promised to the Comedie Franoaise. Mme.
Bernhardt heard of the drama, begged
to be allowed to produce it, and M.
Mendes withdrew it from tLe Comedie
Francaise and gave it to her. under
stipulations ensuring a good run.
M. Mendes subsequently took it back,
when in full rehearsal, on the ground
that Mme.Bernhardt had mado arrangements to go to London, which precluded a satisfactory run for Sanite
The story has been told in a series
of remarkable letters exchanged between Mme. Bernhardt and M. Mendes, which the latt r published. The
letters are most amusing, with their
mutual gushing compliments and
poetical forms of address, which
however, deteriorate to the chilliest
expressions as the quarrel became
embittered. Mme. Bernhardt first
addressed M. Mendes as "My Dear
Eeloved Poet.,'' asking to be allowed
to produced Saint Therese and Mendes
responded to his "Despotic
Sovereign," offering tne piece for the
coming season. Mine. Bernhardt then
replied to her "Darling Friend,"
promising to produce it on March 1.
Mendes thereupon telegraphed as a
reply: '' Dear Therese, the play and
the author are yours."
Later, nowever, he heard lhat Mme.
Bernhardt was making conflicting
arrangements and telegraphed for explanations. This time Mme. Bernhardt merely addressed him as
"Friend" and explained that her arrangements did not affect the pioduc-
tiou of the piece. M. Mendes was not
satisfied but was induced to leave the
play with Mme. Bernhardt. The
rehearsals were begun, but M, Mendes
says he found Wme. Bernhardt had let
her theatie to an Italian company for
a period which rendered the promised
rnn impossible. Be lealized tbat all
was not plain sailing for Sainted
Tnerese and got back his manuscript,
which, he wrote, he will place in a
drawer strewn with red roses, symbols
of bis admiration for Sarah Bernhardt
and with violets, emblems of tier
fickleness. The last communication
of M. Mendes was written in tbe third
person and was addressed to Madame
Sarab Bernhardt.
Mme. Bernhardt replied to the publication of these letters by explaining
thut M. Mendes was wrong about the
arrangements which he thought
would interfere with bis play. She
intended to give it a run of 20 nights
and Could not arrange for a longor
run, because of the risk of losing her
London season, which brings her a
large sum of money, und complained
thut M. Mendeo resorted to a trick to
get back the manuscript, whieh be
suid was only needed for a few corrections. Mme. Bernhardt concluded
her letter as follows: "In a teriible
fit of despair and teurs I drowned my
illusions, hopes, admiration and my
friendship for that man. I came out
of tbis crisis a physical wreck with
my brain in a whirl, but my will safe
and sound. As long as I live I will
never see Catule Mundes again."
M. Mendes. on reading this, telegraphed as follows to Mme. Bernhardt: "I�� it not sily for us to quarrel, when in reality we love ono
The authot poet, however, then
offered to give Sainte Therese to Mine,
Bernhardt if she would only promise
to run it while it was drawing
money. Mme, Bernhardt did not even
reply to this communication, whereupon Mendes writes to the Temps,
replying to all tho points ol Mme.
Bernbardt's letter and concluding a
fervid outburst of admiration <ur ber,
thut he would await "repentance in
her dear, royal and cruel heart." The
matter thus remains without   hope  of
a reronoliatioii.
The Vieomte Christian de Villebols]
de Mareuil, a brother of the hero of I

chess team vanquished the British
team tonight, thi.. being the seventh
of the international series of meeting
with tbe Newnes cup delencers.
America wou 5 1-2 games and Great
Britain 4 1-2 games.
The distinction of achieving the first
victory fell to tho Englishmen by virtue of Trenchard's brilliant defeat of
Delmar on board 7. Almost simultaneously came the news lhat the
amateur, Atkins,had leveled the colors
of Marshall. This was bard blow,
as tbe Brooklyn chess club had relied
upon Marshall and Pillsbury wiunng
their respective games.
; At tbat time the outlook was that
the match would be lost. Hymes was
then in difficulties and Voigt appealed to he beaten. The former,however,
soon extricated himself and proposed
a draw whioh Mills accepted. Voigt
also declared himself the game being
eventually drawn. For a long time
afterward the score remained at 2 to 1
in favor of England, tbe solitary win
for the American side havirg been
achieved later on the last board by
Hymes. Pillsbury was unable to make
any headway aguinst Lawrence and
had to b3 finally satisfied with a
draw. Parry made a great effort to
win, hut could not do it and finally
accepted the otTered draw. After lho
agreement of the contending parties
the remaining games ended us stated
above and the victoiy belonged to tbe

That mining is forging ahead in
Canada is evidenced by the large
production of last year. From the
way it is growing it looks as though
it would in time be the most productive Industry, when all of itr, branches
are taken into consideration, in the
dominion. A lecent compilation of
the exports of Canada to tlie bscal
year 190(1-1 shows as follows.aocording
to the official method of classification :
1'roducts of the mines, $40,367,<i��!l,
products of fisheries, $10,720,251; products of forests. $30,008,887, animals
nnd their products, T5fl,4115,311 j agri'
cultural products, $34,781,480; rnanu
factures, $10,012,208. This reveals,
as classified, that the exports of ani
mals and tbeir products aloue exceed
ed that of the mines. Of course animals and their products are the pio-
uot Oi the farm as well as agricultural products nre, and when these
two are addea they exceed considerably the exports of the output of the
Canada has immense mineral areas
and there is every reason to believe
when the country is opened up to a
larger extent by transport ation facilities that the mines are very liable to

dustiy and are strongly agitating in
favoi of the formation by the Federal
overninent of a mining bureau.
Jyntreul exchttjrge in speaking of
tbis matter^Bays. t.bat the extraordinary
growth of mining indicates tho possibilities oi national wealth that lie
beneath the surface, and lays upon the
various governments in the Dominion
tbe duty of promoting, hy all reasonable means.the full development of our
mineral resuorcis. lho Federal minister of tbe interior, lion. Clifford Sifton, is understood to bu fully alive to
the necessities of the caso. That he
will be able to do all that tho Jlining
Institute requests, and secure the creation o( a department of mines, oannot
be suid, but it may bo expected that
Mr. tiifton niil propose legislation the
aim cf which "ill be to further, in a
more compre' - isive as well as more
concrete manner than is possible with
the present 'tepurtmentul machinery,
the great raining interests of the
country. The Geological survey is
doing a splendid work, but what appears desirable, in furtherance of its
efforts, is pi,.vision for tlie investigation of problems of production and of
marketing of our mineral resources,
even as in th�� department of agriculture such provision exists in regard to
the PTOuucets of tho suil.
Endeavors hate been made to create
prejudice against the Crow'l Nest
Southern railway and tlie Crow's Nest]
Pass Coal Co, ont of the Incident that
ocoured in a Minneapolis court, when
.lames J. Hill of the lireut Northern
railway testified that the Northern
Securities Co. was negotiating for the]
stock of the Crow's Ne. t Pass Coal
Co. Some of the local papers, which are
friendly to the Canadian Pacific Kail-
way Co., endeavored to distort this
evidence to make it appear that the
Northern Securities Co. mas endeavor'
ing to secure tne control of the stook
of the C.roiv's Nest Puss Coal Co., and
they went so far as ti s'ly that it was
pertain to do so; that the effect would
injure II. C, etc. Paius have been
taken to secure the facts and they are
entirely differ.'tit from what the
orgni s have endeavored lo make them
appear. The denials come from an
authoi it'itivc source and ure a complete controversion of the attempted
diatorUtion by the organs of thc railway company. This amounts to
another exposure of the utter unreliability of the statements which bave
continually been made use of in waging the war ngaini-t interests which
are being carrien ou in a manner
which is of the utmost benefit to tne
community. At first tile hireling
sheets shouted as loudly as they could
that Mr. Hill had acquired a control
of the capital stock of the coal
They were shelled out of this
position by a volley of facts fired at
them by one of tiio officials of the
Crow's Nest Co. who stated that Mr.
Hill was the owner of only three-
tenths of the stock and that he had
paid a premium lor it.
Discomfited by the exposure of their
misrepresentation they for a time remained quiet. Then they went, hammer and longs,into the old business of
mendacity again, and because Mr.
Hill stated that the Securities company was negotiating for certain stoek
they jumped to tho conclusion that
that corporation desired control and
was seeking to purchase it. On this
foundation they built up some wild
charges. What are the actual facts?
Simply that the Northern Securities
Co. has been negotiating with Mr.
Hill for his present Holdings of stock
in the Crow's Nest 1'at-s Coal Co., just
us they are negotiating with him for
his present holdings of stock in ti.e
Great Northern railway. There are
not aud never huve been nny negotia-
tionu between the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal Co. aud the Northern Securities
Co. fur any stock. It is therefore,
obvious that the statements of the
organs in this matter, as in many
others, simply amount to misrepresentation

^���inety-Bve tons of ore wero shipped
irom thc Whitewater mine last woek.
Duncan Mel hail has sold a sixth
interest in tne Silver Ulance to H. 0.
From 15 to 20 men are working
steadily at the Idaho mine, though no
shipping is being donr.
The Carbonates No. 2, Spring creek,
sent another shipment of ore amounting to 15 tons to Nehon last week.
The Enterprise, on Ten-Mile, says
the Sandon l'aystreak, shippo't three
carloads of concentrates last week.
On the Fisher Maiden, Four Mile,
tho lodge has been struck in the lower
tunnel ami shipments will soou be
The Red Pox mine liaH been shipping regularly since the lirst of the
year. For last week 22 tons ot ore
were eont out.
lt is understood tho Noble Five
moitgage deal will be settled up one
way or the other on tho 20ih of May
and that the mine will icsume regulai
work on the let of June.
Tbe rawhide trails to the Reco,
Suutet and American Hoy were blocked by the heavy snowfall of a week
since, but since havo been cleaned out
and shipping is proceeding steadily.
No ore was shipped over tbe C.F.R.
from Sandon last week, says the Sandon Paystreak. The K. and S.
handled 100 tons. The Reco shipped
two cars, and the Last Chance, American   Hoy and Sunset one each.
A Revelstoke special to tlie Rossland
Miner sajs: The biggest deal in the
histury of the Lardeau miuing district
wus completed today aftor several
Week's negctiatons, when the Silver
Cup and Sunshine mines changed
hands for a cash consideration up in
the hundreds of thousands. The fortunate purchasers are William U, Foil,
of Ferguson, and Jno. J. Young, of
Tho Silver Cup is undoubtedly the
richest und biggest mine of its kind
in Uritish Columbia. Together with
the Nettie ti., Triune, and Ophir-
Lade, it bus estabished he fame of the

mine ot the district, it is eiusider-
ably further advanced in development
than other properies in tho same
camp, and its oro shipments to dato,
including seven hundred tons now in
sack, amount to over two thousand
tODS of the average value of $125 per
tOD, in silver and gold or a total of *
quarter million of dollars. The ore
reserves in the mine are enormous,
and as it comprises nino claims its
possibilities for the futuie are regarded by mining men as exceptional.
Thc tunnel on the Silversmith is
now in 400 feet and gives _ depth of
250 feet on the vein. Tho ledge, whioh
has been twisting considerably and
lay pretty flat, is now taking a
decided strike und is straightening
up. The ore chute bus never lett them
since first discovered nnd in tho face
is a veritable bonanza. The whole
face of tbe tunnel is in ore und there
is every indicUtion that another of
those phenomenal showings whicb
have made the Slocan Star priperties
famous is beiug opened up. Thore are
only Ave mon employed In the tunnel
and no stoping is being doDe, yet
several carloads of clean ore havo been
sacked in the ore hiuse or lie broken
in the mine. Tho ore is high grade,
carrying considerable gray copper, A
trail is being opened from tbu mouth
of the tunnel to tbo No. ,1 pocket of
the Sioean Slur tramway, so tbat tbu
ore chh be easily shipped. A two
bucket tin in will probably be huilt ln
the spring to connect the Silversmith
tunnel with the mill, so that tbe ore
can ho sont down in bulk und ciushtd
at the luwer end.

Eastern newspapers state tbat the
city council of St. John, N.B., recently made a grant of $750 to tbe
Tourist Association of that city, The
deputation that waited on the council
state that during the previous year tho
government of Now Brunswick bad
granted the association $ 1,000 and tho
city of St. John $500, while the
citizens had subscribed $1,1100. The
association had decided to circulate
50,000 pamphlets.
The Ottawa Valley has also a Tourist association and on March 1 the

Kaslo Repudiates Any Responsibility
For Resolution of That Hody.
A. W. Goodenough, mayor, and Q.
E. Martin, of Kaslo, were in the city
yesteiday un their way to Victoria, as
delegates from the Kaslo boaid of
trade, to lay the views of the board
befoie the government and the mem-
bets of tho legislature. Mr. Martin
left by the Spokane Falls and Northern railway In tbe morning, and
Muyor Goodenough in the evening by
the C.P.R.
The particular resolutions which
tbe delegation go to Victoria to
further are those passed taking a
different view from that of the Associated board of trade on the proposed
change in the mining laws by making
the fee for registeiing an assessment
work $12.50 instead of $2.50, and also
that dealing with the tax on the mineral output.
The Kaslo boaid felt particularly
strong on these two questions because
the members did not wish the impression to go abroad that tbat city was
in any way responsible for the passing of snch resolutions bv the Associated boards because the meetings of
the latter happened to be held in that
Tbe full text of the resolution passed by the Kaslo board is:
(1) Resolved, that this board respectfully requests the government to
appoint a commission to take evidence
and inquire into the whole subject of
taxation with a view to ascertaining
whether the said mining industry is
beine uniustlv discriminated against
by said jtax compared witb other industries of the province.
(2) Resolved, that while tbis board
is in entire accord with the Associated
boards of trade in the sentiment expressed against thc inequitable and
unjust working of tho present tax
charged on the net smelter returns,
and which tax we think should be rearranged, it is our opinion that the
suggestion to increase the fee for
recording each annual assessment
from $2.50 to $12.50 would be a grave
error of judgment and business foresight ; therefore he it resolved, that
this Knslo board of trade hereby expresses is emphatic dissent from the
said resolution, and requests lhe delegates to Victoria to lay this resolution
beforo tne government
Mr. Goodenough stated that the
Easlo board could see no good reason
that would justify the passing of such
a resolution as the Associated boards
had mused. They thought that tho
whole question of taxation should be
inquired into and lhat a fairer
arrangement of the basis of taxation
than the present one,could be deivsed

A number of complaints have been

prosecutions follow. At this season

A copy of tho winding-up order in
the matter of the Tribune Association, Limited, was yesterday served
on Sheriff Tuck, who has been in
possession of The Tribune plant for
some time under nn execution. On
Monday, Charles II. Ink, provisional
liquidator will tako formal possession,
it no hgal objection 1b raised in tbe
meantime, which is not probable. By
the order appointing him, tbe provisional liquidator is empowered to
take possession, collect and protect
the assets of the oompany, but not to
distribute or patt with the snme until
further order. The winding-up ordei
maintains the preference of tho workmen in arrears [or wages to the extent
of ttirec months, but it annuls their
