Nelson,   British [Columbia, Saturday,   February 15, 1902
Eleventh  Year
Mr. Wheeler Thinks Americans too Effusive Over
the Prince.
Grosvenor Insists on Courtesy to Representative
Washington, Feb. 14.���The monotony of a private pension bill in the
house today was enlivened by a very
sensational speech by Mr. Wheeler, of
Kentucky, in denunciation of what he
denominated "flunkeyism" to foreign
countries. He took the rooent statements emanating from continental
cabinets regarding the attitude of
Great Ilritain during thc Spanish war
as a text for a wholesale attack upon
the trend of America's recent diplomacy. Ho severely scored Secretary
llay and doclared that if Lord Pauncefote had sought, as alleged, to circumvent us during the war of 1898, the
sooner he was shipped across tho seas,
the better. He also criticized the pres
ident for his reported intention to
send his daughter to the coronation of
King Edward and protested against
the official reception ot Prince Henry.
Thero was a sequel to Mr. Wheeler's
speech later in the day when Mr.
Grovenor scoured the floor and replied at length to what the Kentuok-
ian had said. As to Mr. Wheeler's
denial of a statement regarding the
visit of the Prince of Wales in 1860,
Mr. Grosveror declared that he could
personally bear witness to the truth
of bis assertion, for he himself had
seen the prince when he first sot foot
on Amoncan soil. At Niagara, as a
young man, be had listened to the
prince's speech, he said, with great
interest. He      denominated    Mr.
Wheeler's remark about the forthcoming visit of Priace Henry as a "bitter
attack upon the President of the
United States, thu house, and the
Senate, and iuoidentially upon all
with whom the prince would come iu
As to Lafayette's visit, lie insisted
that the marquis bore a royal commission, and in that connection he
said be did not care to commit himself unreservedly to the fnondship of
France, whioh country was fighting
her enemies on American soil, and attempted to get into a fight with the
United States before George Washington diod. Just at the time when the
American people were to be put to the
test as to whether they were gentlemen, he said, it was most unfortunate
that this protest should come against
the reception of Prince Henry. The
speech of the gentleman from Kentucky would be exploited in Europe
tomorrow, on the eve of the prince's
departure, as the message ot American
people to the guest.
Mr. Wheeler interposed at this point
to say that he should gladly welcome
auy gentleman from abroad ; what he
objected to, was tbe official color to
be given to the visit. Then aa Mr.
Grosvenor proceeded to read what he
said criticizing the president fur making a new precedent in connection with
the coronation of King Edward, Mr.
Wheeler interrupted to say that whilo
lie hail no desire to bring the matter
into the discussion, what be bad deplored was the report th��Jk the president Intended to send a member of
his family to the coronation.
"Oh, if it is simply a matter of a
young girl going tn the coronation of a
:-'i'ntlemon and lady," observed Mr.
UroBvenor, ''1 will not pursue it."
Continuing, Mr. Grosvenor asserted
that within his personal knowledge
he would say that in sending a deputation to the coronation of Kiog
lid ward, the present occupant of the
White House had simply oarried ont
the plans of the deceased president,
who had already selected the nead of
the commission. If the constituents
ol thu gentleman from Kentucky were
polled, he did not think that five per
cent, would condemn the president.
"So   far  as   the young lady is concerned," he   added,   "I   can tell  the
pentleman one thing,   she would  give
great   deal   of trouble if  she
term "little Dutchman" which Mr.
Wheeltr had applied to Prince Henry,
and his remarks about his indifference
to the good will of tho (lerman people.
Mr. Grosvenor commented upon his
language, saying that while the gentleman might be indifferent now as to
! lho good will of the Germans, it would
be different in tho fall, 'when persimmons were ripe.1 "
Mr. GrDsvenor described at some
length, the visit of the Prince of Wales
in 1860, his tour of the country, and
the honors showered upon him by
President liiichanan, who be said,
rushed out of tbe White House and
met him with extended arms as if ho
had been "traditional prodigal son."
As to the visit of Prince Henry, he
was a brother of tbe German Emperor.
He was nut a Dutchman, but an
European, a German, he was an admiral of the German navy, the same
who had been sent to Manlia to protect German interests, and when oue
of his ships got in the way, Dewey
had intormed him that if the ship did
not get out of the way in short order
there would be trouble. "Then he took
it away like a gentleman," remarked
Mr. Grosvenor,smid laughter,

combe, in the United States circuit

of Mining and Treating the Ore
of Boundary.
Alabama Mines, With Colored Labor, Alone
in the World Show a Cheaper
Ore Production.
Wm. M. Brewer, representative of
tha New York Engineering a'ud Mining Journal, came in yesterday from
the Boundary. Among the first statements he made to the representative
of The Minei was that he was convinced that the mines of the Boundary
could mine and treat ore for 83 a ton.
Tbis might not pay interest on tbe
investment tut it would make an
allowance for wear and tear. Asked if
this was unusually low, he said he
believed it was the lowest cost at
which any metalliferous mines of
tne world were worked with the possible exception of the iron miaes of
Alabama, and thore colored labor is
Going fnrther into details he said
tbat the ore bodies were so large, the
quantity of timber reqnired so small,
and the ore was such a perfect flux in
itself, that these lesults could be obtained. By the system of mining now
adopted pait of the ore is left to fill
up the stope until it is worked out to
the surface so that the drill may be
set on it. When one stope is finished
this loose ore Will be taken out, and
when all in a single stope is considered he thought that tbe cost would
be about as he had stated. In two
mines he bad seen ore blocked out
that was 120 feet eaoh way. He had
thought that when oopper went down
to 12 cents or 11 cents that it wonld
be all off with the Boundary, but now
he believed that it could stand ten-
cent or possibly nine-cent copper.
Speaking as to the department of
the miuing industry of the province
from whioh greatest results might be
expected, he said that he thought the
great mainstay would be the gold-
copper mines. These ere bodies occurred of such immense size that the
amount that would be procured from
them was very largo. He did not look
upon the free milling mines as of such
importance, as they were wider distributed and would likely be fewer in
number. The silver-leaJ mines wore
the next best to    placer mines for the
' poor man, but were such the future of
them he did not consider so bright.
All thc mining industry of the province requires, in Mr. Brewer's estimation, is not to be hampered with taxes
and too much legislation. Tbe tax on
tbe output was a most unfair one. He
would suggest a tax by which the
vaoant claims would be made to pay
as much as those that are onerated,
or revert to the government. At
present a very large portion of the
province was mineral claims an d held
by those who would neither work or
sell them. In consequence naming
was being done un tbem and Mie
province was getting little revenue
from the owners. As the system of
taxation Is now the man wbo helps
tho development of tbe province has to
pay taxes for His enterprise. He
would take the taxes of mines an
assess all upon a valuation of the
Mr Brewer in discussing the metal
markets said that so long as Canada
was dependent oo tne New York and
London markets for the sale of lead,
silver and copper, much better conditions than the present could not be
expected. The first thing was to
secure the home trade lor Canadian
metals and after that to look for the
same markets that the others sell in.
The Canadians should procure seoretly
and accurately all possible information regarding the price that can be
realised for the products of Canada in
Hawaii, China and Japan in par-
tiular. There should be agents in
those parts ready to give accurate information as to what Canada has to
sell which could be given to those entitled to it. Ten British Columbia
would ship copper or lead, indepen-
ent of what anyone else is doing, to
the people who wish to buy. He understood that there was a refinery in
Seattle that had already sent upward
of 100,000 ounces of silver to the
Asiatic markets, and probably made
more out of it than if it had been sold
at home. It was the same with the
lead and the copper.

Will Delay C.P.R. Line.
Toronto, Feb. 14.���A visit of rather
more than usual interest was that of
Wm. Whyte, of the C. P. R., to this
city. Mr. Whyte is assistant to President Shaughnessy, and his headquait-
ers are at Winnipeg. He arrived from
Montreal, and will return there when
his mission here is concluded. While
in .Toronto he is the guest of E. C.
Irving, general manager of tho Brad-
street company. The objeot of Mr.
Whyte's visit is to Interview the'gov-
crnment regarding thoir plan for tbe
development of New Ontario.in which
the C.P. R. is prepared to heartily co-
perate. Details will be arranged later.
Speaking of the proposed C. P. R.
line from Vanoonver to Siberia, Mr.
Whyte said that ou acoount of the very
high tariff imposed by RuBsia against
Amerioan products, nothing will bo
done towards the projcot for at least
six months. While tbe tariff does not
yet apply to Canadian goods, such a
line as proposed could not be operated
successfully without depending largely on American freight as well as
Canadian. An agent of tne company
is located at Vladivostuck collecting
information of the amount and value
of American and Canadian imports
at that poit. In view ol the urgent
need of revenue by the'Russiao gov
ernment, Mr. Whyte does not look for
any reduction in tbe tariff against the
United States.
Would Accept a Proposal For a Finish
Fight From Jeffries.
New York, Feb. 14.���Robert Fitz-
simmons, former world's champion
pugilist, said today tbat he would
accept a proposition mado by James J.
Jeffries, the present holder of the title,
fur a finish contest between thorn, tbe
winner to tako 60 per cent, and the
loser 40 per cent, of thc purse. Fitz-
simmons said he was willing to sign
articles at any time and tbe only
stipulation lie wished to make was
that tlie winner should have all of the
picture pi ivilegeprocdces. Ho thought
tho tight should take placo before the
club offering the largest purse.
Jeffries expressed himself as well
pleasad when informed of Fitzsim-
moii's intentions. He arranged to
meet Fit/siiinnons tomoirow and sign
articles. He said he wonld bo ready
to fight in April or lo May. The
battle ground will probably be on the
Pacific coast.

Flotsam Found Supposed   to Be From
Red Rock.
Victoria, Feb. 14.���The light house-
g the beach looking for signs of
wreckage, had found cases of Salman
without, however, any marks on
them. This will increase the uneasiness felt for the salmon laden ship
Red Rock, a lifo buoy from which was
found on the coast some weeks ago.
The Red Roca left here o. November
29tb and the big storm in which the
warBhlp CoLdor and collier Mattewan
foundered occurred on December 2nd.
Reports of wrecakge from ships which
sail out of the straits is looked upon
in some circles with considerable suspicion on account of the gambling in
re-insurance, but there is no doubt
that the buoy found was from the Red
Rock, it having been seen by the
offloers of the Egeria. However the
salmon and buoy might have been
washed from the deck of the ship.
Frank Nicholas was today found
guilty of manslaughter for the killing
of Tom Netes. The men bad been
quarrelling and Nicholas stabbed
Netes, '..who was found dead en tbe
street some hours later. Nicholas
tried to get away in his fishing sloop.
A nolle prosequi was entered in the
case of Katchulles who was charged
with assisting Nicholas to escapo.
Officers Elected���Work on Properties
to Be Commenced.
On Monday afternoon the newly
elected directors of tbe Valparaiso
Qold Mining oompany held their first
meeting at which G. A. Carlson,
James Speers, J.Werner, Angus Campbell and Aug. Short were present. R.
F. Green, M. L.A., was elected president, aod Q. A. Carlson, vice-president, and J. F. Maloney was re-elected secretary-treasurer.
It is expected tbat work will be
Oommnceed upon the property of the
company at Goat creek soon after the
next meeting of the directors , which
will take place immediately npon tbe
return of Mr. Green from the coast.
A shaft will be sunk on the lead from
tbe end of the present tunnel which Is
axpected to prove the property at a
great depth. The cost of hoisting
machinery and other matters appertaining to the now course of development is now being looked into and it
is probable that within a very short
time the mine will bave a full force of
men at work.
of Work Train Smashed
Seven Men Killed.
Memphis, Tenn., Feb. 14.���Seven
men were killed and at least 14 seriously Injured by a huge boulder whioh
crashed into the caboose of a work

ity. When a newspaper like the
Miniiifj Review is temporarily deceived it is evidont that a largo soction of
the eastern press will accept the
falsely colored picture of British
Columbia opinion. In fact the manufactured special, which was sent free
over the C. I'.R. wires, was accepted
and published by several prominent
eastern newspapers. The suggested
transfer of the Morrissey creek coal
measures to the C. f.R. would enable
tlmt company Ul figbt tbe Crow's Nest

The Canadian Mining Review, a
substantial and important monthly
published in Ottawa, is impresed with
the unnnimiy of the demand made by
certain British Columbia newspHpers
for immediate transfer of the coal
measures south of Morrissey creek to
the C. P. R. But there are more
tilings in tbe British Columbia newspapers than are dreamed about in the
Mining Review's philosophy. In faot
the views of the newspapers named
are as unnimous as it is possible for
tbe manifolding apparatus ol a modem
typewriter to make them. The views
expressed could not have coincided
more accuartely il they had been sot
up in a stereotyping otlice and cast,
column width, from a single matrix.
Regarded ns a labor-saving scheme
this unanimity is scarcely rivalled by
the Utopian dreams of Edward Bellamy. No wonder it impressed our
Ottawa contemporary, immersed as it
mnst be in enlgneering problems and
details, and innocent of the wiles of
daily newspaper life. The Kamloops
Inland Sentinel has evidently much
time on its hands, for it took pains to
make an assay of the unanimity after
declining a chance to get in on thu
ground floor.    Here is the result:
"The Province, of Saturday last,
18th inst., contains what purports to
bo a special telegraphic despatch from
Fort Steele, dated 17th January,
under the caption, 'Coal Monopoly in
the Crow's Nest.' It is a most remarkable conireidenee that abuut a
week ago one of our citizens handed
to the Sentine' a typewritten article
an exact counterpart of the Province's
'special,' whioh has been sent to
hiin with tbo request that be secure
its insertion in a Liberal newspaper.
The copy placed in our hands is dated
Irom Fort Steele, January fltb, and
reads almost word for word with the
Province special, to which, however,
n few more paragraphs have beon
added. As a matter of fact the article
had been manifolded, interlarded with
appropriate variations, and sent
through the medium of trusty agents,
to the press, particular anxiety
boing shown to secure publication ln
Liberal nowspapers. But this is not
all. A few days ago, on Saturday
last, to be precise, another gentleman
sent us a shorter article, dealing with
he same subject, and bearing in every
sentence the imprint of the same
authorship as tbo more lengthy one,
In tbis second inamiwipt reference Is
made to an attisle whieh appeared ln
the Nelson Tribune about two weeks
ago touching upon the identical question, the Crow's Nest Coal company
and Mr. Jim Hill's connection there
with. Strange to say tho Tribune's
article is suspiciously liko the
Province's 'special' und the two
typewritten Mss. now in our posses
sion, and is uudoubenly the prod ict
of the same facile pen. Another note
worthy feature is the fact the l'rovinco
eomtnontod on the Nelson Tribune's
article, producing some part of it, and
the entire Provinco article was
reprinted in tbo Rossland Miner of the
14th lust. Next, the Province of the
18th inst. published its variation of
the same nrticle dated the 17th, from
Fort Stcole and then to clap tbe
climax the Nelson Tribune, ulso of the
18th, reprints tlio Province article as
a telegram from Victoria, dated the
I7th, the same day as it was 'wired'
(?) from Fort Steele to tbe Vancouver
C.P.B. organ, This is indeed wonderful! A soit of a telogrnohic sec-saw."
Is it any wonder tbat tbe Mining
Review is impressed with tho unanimity of tlio demand, by the Ilritia1.
Columbia newspipurs, for tho transfer
of the coal lands south of Morrissey
oreok to the C.P.R. One feature of
this affair is truly impressivo and
that Is tho case with which a sngle
corporation can manufacture newspaper opinion in tins provinco. Newspapers handling tills manifolded stuff
and sending it abroad as tlieir own
opinions kill whatever influence tbey
may have possessed in   this  coinmun-
Tbe Nelson Board of Trade at Its
meeting on Thursday evening adopted
a resolution recommending that the
associated Boards of Trade of Eastern
British Columbia adopt a resolution
to the effect that it is strongly of the
opinion that the welfare of certain
parts of British Columbia, the
Boundary section in particular, demands encaper fuel and earnestly
urges upon the Dominion government
the advisability of doing everything
within its power to encourage the
opening up of new coal fields, either
by individuals or companies, and in
every othor way reducing the cost of
Mr. Beer, notwithstanding that
some of tlio ether members of the
board were inclined to be fuir and
showed a desire to not take action on
suoh short notice, insisted that the
resolution be immediately adopted
and after considerable debate carried
his point.
Among tbo arguments which Mr.
Beer used in support of the immediate
passage of the resolutions was thut the
cost of coal in Nova Soatia is not as
high as it is in British Columbia, and
he seemed to think that the price
should be abont the same in the two
provinces. This contention is onrca
sonabie and untenable in the extreme.
Miners at the Spring Hill mines in
Nova Scotia, one of the largest
collieries in tbe province, receive from
$1 to $3 per day, while the miners
working in the several collieries in
the Crow's Nest basin are paid about
$3 per day. Considerable of the work
is done by contraot and nnder this
system tbe compensation varies. The
cost of supplies is much greater in
British Columbia than in Nova Scotia.
Besides thia tho mines, under the
cnartor, pay a royalty to tile govern
ment of 10 cents per ton. These con<
('ilium make it impossible to mine
and sell coal and its manufactured
products at the same rates that prevail
in Nova Scotia and no one knows tbis
better than Mr. Beer. The latter is
the owner of some houses in this city
which he rents. How would Mr.
liner like to have tbe board of trade
meet and insist in a resolution that
he accept tho same rentals for his
premises tbat ho would receive for like
establishments in Nova Scotia. We
fancy that Mr. Boer would cry'out
loudly on the street corners against
the iniquity of such proceedings. Yet
there would be as much justice in it as
there is in the resolution passed by
the board of trade on Thursday evening. It makes considerable difference
sometimes whose ox is gored.
Besides this,notice should have been
given that a resolution of this character was coming up, so thut there
might be a larger attendance, a fair
discussion, and proper time taken
for its consideration. Tbe fact that
the resolution was rushed through
notwithstanding tho attempt to have
it laid ovor, shows that tho desire was
to tako snap judgment, whioh was
not tbe most creditable mode of
Lord Dufferin, whose death oocurrcd
early in tlic week, was a romarkablo
man. He had great ability as a diplomat, and it was once said of him tbat
his adriotness won alternately the
admiration and despair of Europe
When lie was Oovernor-Oeneral of
Canada, and none of tOc distinguished
personages, who have filled that important position was more popular
than lie, he occupied a high place in
the alTections of the people. lt was
then that he showed his great tact in
icconciling the differences, social and
otherwise, that sometimes arose bo
tncsn the Anglo-Saxon and tlio
French elements. While ho was
llovernor-Oeneral trouble began to
Isii'iv between Oanada and the United
States oyer the Atlantic fisheries,
which at one time threatened to become serious, hut Lord Dufferin poured
the oil of bis diplomacy on the
troubled waters, and thuy became
oalm, and the two peoples wore soon
friendly with oach other. A few years
after his retirement from Oanada he
went to India as viceroy. There ho
had weighty responsibilities but he
succeeded admirably by the sheer foroe
of his diplomacy.
It Is regrettable that the end of his
career should havo been olouded by
tbo London and Globe scandal. This
much   may   be  said of his connection

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
There iB noth ing like Asthmalene. It

The Rev. 0. P. WELLS, o Villa Ridge,
111., says: "Yonr trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good condition. I oannot
tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
years. 1 despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you bud overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astouishment the trial acted like a
charm.   Send me a full size bottle.

wonderful effect of your Asthiniilene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been afflcted with spasmodic asthma for tb<�� past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well us many otbers, 1 chanced to Bee your Bign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, i at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmalene.
My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are alflioted with this distressing disease.

that much money changed bands in

Herald points out in a breezy way, it
"changed from the hand of the
Ontario 'sucker' into the hand of thu

Gratifying success continues to attend the development of the Iron
Horse gronp, on Ten Mile, sayB the
Slocan Drill. The other day a drift
was commenced on the vein at the 50-
foot levol in the shaft, where a small
seam of ore was Bhowiog. The drift
had only gone 11 feet when it broke
into a foot ol solid shipping ore, and
it has remained with them ever since.
The strike was made on the Enterprise Bide of the shaft and it will give
tho Iron Horse several hundred feet of
ground to open up. The shaft is being
pushed and will be sunk to a point
280 feet from the surface, thence a
crosscut will be run to the big ledge.
The machinery is running smoothly

Suit Against the Arlington Mine on a
Timber Contract.
In tbe Supreme court yesterday
judgment was delivered in the case of
Fraieigh vs. Hall Mines, which bad
beon on tiial the day before. At the
opening of court R. M. Macdonald,
counsel tor the defendant, arose to
direct the attention of tho court to
what he considered was contempt of
cour*. on the part ol The Miner in its
report of the case. His lordship passed fhe matter bv saying that he wcnld
deliver judgment first, and then it
would be open to Mr. Macdonald to
speak to any motion he might choose
to make. Judgment was then given
for the plaintiff for $1,750 and costs.
He found tbat the approximate cause
of tbe injury the plaintiff sustained
was the starting of the briquetting
muchine while the plaintiff had his
arm in the mixer; that the plaintiff
waB not guilty of negligence in putting his arm there, and that putting
his arm in was not in itself the
approximate cauBe of the accident.
Taylor and O'Shea for the plaintiff,
R. M. Macdonald for defendant.
The trial of Bremner vs. Arlington
mines was then begun and at the
close of the day only two witnesses
had beon heard.     These  wero W.   H.

How R. O. Jennings and Gus Thies
Let One Get Away.
R. O. Jennings and Gus Thies have
been placer mining on Perry creek
the past few months, says the Cranbrook Herald. Their camp is about
six miles above Old Town, and they
have been living alone in their cabin.
One day last week they heard their
dog crying in agony and alarm. Mr.
Jennings rnshed out to the brush and
found the animal iu the embrace of an
immense mounUin lion. Jennings
called to Thies to bring the axe, and
in the meantime, having nothing else
to use, threw his mits at tho animal.
Without letting go of his victim thc
lion spit like a tomcat at this mode of
attack, and finally let the dog go and
slunk slowly into the woods. Tbies
hurried out with a 22-rifle they had in
camp to sboot at mountain rats. Not
thinking of the ferocity of the lion or
the danger he incurred, Thies chased
after him and succeeded in hitting
him once in the flank. The bullet
had no effect except to cause the lion
to turn and spit at him. Suddenly it
dawned upon Thies that he was chaB-
ing a half starved lion alone into the
bush wilh nothing bnt a plaything of
a iifle for proteotlon. Thinking then
that discretion wbb the better part of
valor, he relinquished the chase and
sought in hurried flight the safety of
companionship at the camp.
"I hated to lose the fellow," said
Mr. Thies, "as it was tbe largest one
I ever saw. But I could do nothing
with a small rifle, and so had to let
him go."

Is Said to Be Plenty in the Valley of
���the Lnrdo.
Mr. E. R. Vipond arrived in Kaslo
from Larao on Monday co look into
the matter of obtaining two trails for
the Larno.snys the Kaslo Kootenaiar.
The citizens of that pluce held a meeting on Monday and decided to send
Mr. Vipond down to Kaslo to inquire
after their interest in regard to the
building of trials. They want a ti ail
irom Kaslo to Lardo. This they claim
will be of great benelit lo parties taking in stock and other goods which at
the present time cannot be. shipped
conveniently by boat. It is thought
that about $1,500 could be spent on
this trail during the coming season in
outting out and blazing and the building of a few bridges. They also want
the government to compel the C. I'. R.
to replace the trail which they have
destroyed betweou Lardo and the
Meadows. Mr. Vipond while in town
visited Gold Commissioner Chipman
and presented his ease to him.
Quite a number of new settlers huve
taken up land in the Lardo valley
lately but there is still large tracts of
land open for soltlement. This land
is very heavily timbered, but the wood
token off will pay for the clearing.
To anybody who wants to tako up
lands in thnt district Mr. Vipond will
give all information within his power
aud show them where tho best land is
to be found. Chas. Eck has pre-empted
an 80-acre tract between Putnam and
Murphy and others are at present
looking thc country over.
