What Is Being Done In the
Projected Chapleau-Kilo
Amalgamation.
Athabasca -. Exchequer Consolidation���Mining News
of Interest.
Developments are expected shortly
in connection with tlie proposition to
amalgamate the Chapleau anil Kilo
properties. Up to the present time
nothing has taken place to to indicate
that the deal will ho consiimated, hut
the feeling is gaining ground that the
prospect for consolidation is favorable.
When last In the city I1'. Mourgues,
engineer for the Chapleau company,
took pains to point out that while negotiations were under way it was a
misrepresentation of tlie facts to state
that tlie deal had heen consummated.
The Chapleau company, he said, had
not had time to investigate the properties included iu the Kilo _roup anil
until he had gone over every inch of
the ground carefully the matter could
not he placed before his directors in
any tangible form. Since that time
Mr. Mourgues has been continuously
at the Chapleau mine on I.euion creel;
and has been working assiduously on
his examination of the claims to le
included in the amalgamated property if the suggested deal is put
through.
A consolidation of the Chapleau anil
Kilo properties would mean much for
the Lemon creek section, Tlie former
is owned by a French corporation
who have expended considerably ovir
81��(i,(io�� in the purchase and development of the group, the outlay embracing an appropriation for a mill and
com .odious buildings. The ore unfortunately did not prove amenable to
a free-milling process, and this naturally induced a shut-down. The latter
step was complicated by financial
troubles which were, as is well
known, arranged within u short
time. The Kilo is owned by the Warner Miller syndicate, headed by Senator Miller of New York. It includes
38 claims, part of which were acquired by the syndicate from the Messrs,
McNaught, who retain their interest.
Sonic 8."i.OOO has been spent on the
property in the way of development
and it has been demonstrated that several of the leads are floe milling.
while others arc susceptible to treatment by oilier methods of local reduction. Ily an amalgamation, the
one property would obtain the area of
mineral land it lacks at present and
the free milling ore necessary to operate its plant,while the other company
secures line plant and buildings necessary to operate its numerous claims.
Two strong corporations would be
consolidated and from that point it is
not a far cry lo one of the biggest
propositions in the Slocan, N. F. McNaught, who is now in the city,slates
that he believes the trend of alTnirsat
the present time is towaid the consummation of the deal.
Failing a consolidation, Mr. McNaught suys thai the Warner Miller
company will proceed to place the Kilo on 11 producing basis if not this
year then In 11103, The matter of
treating the ores iivaihihlu iu the most
economical and etllcient manner is
being investigated, and the company
prefers satisfying themselves thoroughly on this point hefoie investing
a large sum in a plant.

to matters at the Athabasca, Mr. Fell
stated that everything was running
smoothly. The new cyanide plant is
iving splendid satisfaction, and it
had heen demonstrated that the period of treatment would be shorter
than had been anticipated when the
plant was put in, a very desirable
feature.
Among the rccouls tiled at the government otlice yesterday was ono referring to an interesting deal near
Hall Siding. It was in the form of a
bond on the Wild Cat mineral claim
hy which the property was bonded by
Charles T. Sleeper to I. J. and F. H.
.lumen, l'aiil liataglia, George liatag-
lia, ,T. T. Knlusha and Charles II. Arnold. The property is to be sold at
8100,000, the lirst payment of JS.I.OIIO
being due Marcli 1, 100.. In the meantime work is to be started as soon as
the circumstances are favorable and
to be eoutinued without cessation.
Thc purchasers were to pay for this
work and if the terms of the bond
have been fulfilled SiiOO should have
been deposited in the Exchange National bank of Spokane.

THE LOCAL

^ISLATUEE
EMINENTLY   SUCCESSFUL
INAUGURATION   OF   THE EARLY
CLOSING MOVEMENT   IN NELSON    YESTERDAY.
NO ATTEMPT   TO   INFRINGE   ON
THE   SPIRIT   OF THE
COVENANT.
The nport is current that tho
Emily Edith inino in the Silverton
camp has shipped a carload of ore to
England to bo tested by the new
method of treatment in which the
slimes arc precipitated into oil tanks
from which the values are exttacted
by centrifugal apparatus. It Is maintained that the new system is unequalled for etlleieney and economy in
treating ores  carrying   sulphides.
R. H.Lcnnio, acting on behalf of the
shareholders of the Exchequer company is now notifying thc stockholders that > the Athabasca empany is
ready to distribute the Athabasca
shares to the persons entitled to receive them aa part of the purchase
price. 10. Nelson Fell,manager of the
Athabasca, slated that his company
would     take   possession   of   tin-   Ex-
The inauguration of the early closing movement yesterday afternoon was
eminently successful. The merchants
who signed the agreement to close
their places of business at noon apparently went into the matter in perfect
good faith tor so far as The Miner
was able to ascertain there was not
the slightest attempt to infringe on
the spirit of the covenant. Retail
business was suspended entirely and
on all sides it was agreed that the
scheme was most desirable.
Tho weather bureau must have had
an intimation that the business men
of Nelsou intended launching the
weekly half holiday idea yesterday
and been favorably impressed, for
the weather provided for the occasion
was admirable. It was the first really
warm day of the year the temperature rising above summer heat tor a
couple of hours during the afternoon.
For boating tlie conditions could
hardly havo been improved upon, and
the boathouses reaped a harvest. The
Thursday half holiday promises to
stimulate the interest in athletics
substantially. Heretofore Sunday has
had a. monopoly of games, but the
halt holiday is likely to take most of
the attractions this summer. With a
large number of people about the city
to bo amused on Thursday afternoon
tho athletic orgaizations will arrange
matches and in this way the spoits
and pastimes of the city are safe to
benefit.
At the recreation grounds yesteiday
afternoon a number of sports were in
progress. The Rugby football club
had a lively practice for the game on
Saturday with Ciaiihrook. The players appeared to he in line form as a
rule and should give the visitors a
hard run for the honors. Iu fact it
is likely that Nelson will have somewhat of an advunlagc over the Cranbrook men by reason of playing on
their own grounds aud also of being
able to chese players while the visitors arc probably hampered somewhat
in securing men to take the long trip
over the Crow's Nest road. Several
men turned out with lacrosse sticks
and passed an hour in "lobbing" a
ball around the Held. Au effort is being made to stimulate interest in Canada's national game with a view to
arranging for a team to visit Grand
Folks on Victoria day, and the weekly half holiday will give the players
an excellent opportunity to get into
form for thc match. The association
football players were also out for
their lirst practice. Tho latter organization expects to bring off several
games shortly and the half holiday
affords them the opening they desire
The concensus of opinion about the
eity was that the half holiday had
been a success. The Miner heard of
no cases where the closing of the
stoies at noon wrought a hardship,
and it is safe lo state that customers
were quite satisfied with the arrangement,
(SPECIAL TO THE MINEIl.)
Victoria, May 2.--On moving the
second reading of the loan bill this
evening, Mr. Turner disclosed some
revised conditions after the persistent
demands of the opposition and dissatisfied government supporters.
He said the 8500,000 for the Fraser
river bridge would he raised in tlie
province, the government taking
power to pay 4J. per cent, interest on
the same.
To the provisioi providing that the
province receive four per cent, of the
gross earnings of assisted roads is
added that the provided sum so paid
shall not in any one year exceed 2 per
cent, on the amount of the subsidy
advanced. Another amendment pro
vides that the government may acquire a subsidized railway after twenty years fiom the time the subsidy is
paid to the .onipany.
The provision giving the governor
in council power to vary conditions
from time to time is struck out and
the following substituted: "The
company may at any time repay the
amount advanced and then be absolved from any further payment but this
shall not prejudice the rights of the
governor in council in the meantime." The clause giving the government power to impose other terms
is also struck out.
The section providing for a ferry to
Vancouver island at a convenient
point is made to read at Sidney
Swartz bay or other convenient point
The provision making no subsidy payable till 1004 is altered to 1003. Turner was not disposed to say anything
regarding the government's reserve of
power to award the contracts, but on
being pressed at last said he was authorized by the premier to state that
he would call the legislature together
to confirm any such contract.
The debate was adjourned and is
not likely to come up again till Monday as Martin will be away tomorrow.
There will he a session in the forenoon tomorrow. The kickers in the
government ranks are furious over
the reluctance of the government to
give raodicliations as they say they
had distinct pledges that these would
be given on a second reading.
Eberts explained the fisheries bill
tonight and said the privy council
gave Ontario power over fisheries and
ho thought this applied here. Thc
bill pro mles for the establishment of
hatcheries, appointment of a fishery
commission and other powers.

to Raise Forces.
London, May ..'. ��� At a banquet given in his honor at Uullfot'd, in Surrey
tonight, Mr. Hioderkk, the secretary
of state for war, challenged the opponents to his army scheme and de
dared that if Great llritain is to maintain her commercial and imperial
position she must ho ready to light
on the Nile, on the Yangtse, the
Orange river or the Indus. Mr. Ilrod-
erick further declared that his scheme
had received thc imprimatur, of the
greatest living military authority and
that as a government they would
Stand or fall in their determination
to improve the army without any delay whatever. He would be no party,
he said, with those who had favored
the postponement of the application
of his scheme until the war in South
Africa was ended and with the commander in chief of the army at his
hack, ho would not hesitate to urge
parliament for tho necessary funds.

KING EDWARD'S TITLE,
London, May   2.���At   a meeting
Someone has observed that there are
more things in earth air! heaven than
are dreamed of in man's philosophy.
One of these, as fur as the majority
of Nelsonites are concerned, is the
Electric Despatch Messenger service
which commenced business in Nelson
just a week ago.
Last evening a Miner representative
called at the company's ollice near the
corner of linker and Stanley streets
and through thc kindness of Thomas
Sargent, local manager, was initiated
into thc intricate mechanical working
of thc system which, when fully understood and appreciated, is destined
to reduce business to a science. The
system as explained by the manager is
as simple as it is interesting. On a
dial plate iu each of the one hundred
call boxes already set up about the
city aro recorded live calls viz. : Messenger, hack, express wagon, doctor
and tire. By mining a knob similar
to that found on the telephone, to
the former a message is transmitted to
a ink writing register which records
by a system of telegraphy, the number of the sender's box on a paper
tape. For a hack the number is recorded twice, foi express wagon three
times,for a doctor, four times, and for
a fire live times. Five boys in grey
lulls with a thin red piping and a
brass plate containing Ihe boy's number are ou hand to respond.
As an experiment and to illustrate
the dispatch and convenience of the
system a Miner man called up from
llo.x (i, tho Miner's call box, for a
nic'scJigc'-. In one minute dispatch
messenger hoy No. :.', arrived who wns
handed a letter for the reporter's busl
girl. The hoy delivered the message,
was back in ten minutes, and was
paid ten cents, bearing receipts from
both receiver nnd sender, which aie
ti loci at the dispatcli_ollk'e.
No charges are made for hacks, express or lire1 calls, as the company is
in direct communication with each,
the latter being entirely free and the
former only being paid for the work
done. Messenger boxes are placed in
all the hotels and chief business places,
and more will he placed throughout
the eity fico of charge, wherever thoy
arc required. The system is in operation day and night,
The company has already strung
three miles of wire and will gradually extend the system as business Increases, By this system hills, letters,
parcels, etc., will he delivered in any
part of the city at ten cents for a
quater of all hour, fifteen cents for
twenty-live minutes and one hour for
thiity live cents.
(SPECIAL, TO THE MINIMI.)
Victoria, I). C , May :;.���In the
house today Mai tin made another
but unsuccessful attempt to strike out
the nullifying clauses in his champerty bill. It was frustrated on a
vote of 1(1 to 17. The bill has now
only a third reading to pass, when,
if it escapes amendment, it will bt
ome law in its emasculated foim.
The six months hoist for the medical bill as proposed by 2,800 members
of secret societies was passed, only
eight members supporting the bill,
which asks that practitioners be received as duly accredited doctors in
this province who come from any
Hritish dependency. The fact that
the Roddick bill establishing a Dominion standard is likely to he passed
at Ottawa had much to do with the
defeat of the local measure.

GOVERNMENT THREATENS FORCE
Friends of the government say tonight that tho executive trill force

prorogation before Ihe middle of the
week even if it is necessary to have
three sittings a day. If this be correct they must have reconciled the
malcontents as they havo not heen in
a position previously to force matters
at all. On tho other band the kickers say that they have not been mollified and unless the government goes a
long way toward compromise they will
vote against tho railway bill.

THE WASTAGE OF WAR.
A remarkable communication to the
London Daily News from a statistician
on the subject of the   losses sustained
secretary to   the   provincial   board of
health:
To ihe Editor,���I beg to thank you
fur your publication of my letter. I
must again ask for an apology for
yoill statement that we were Influenced by the mining company. The
fact that you received this iiiforma-
'tion from your local health officers
dues not relieve you from the responsibility. I oxpeetod to sec in some
of your later issues a statement from ,by the Hritish forces in Soutli Africa

they refuse to move I must hold you ..fleet. It is not necessary to go In-
responsible. |,     ���     elaborate   emulations   which

a ses-
wliich
cation promptly expiessed regret for
having given publicity to statements
in its news columns which were unwarranted, and coupled that with an
npologj for having wounded the fine
susceptibilities of the secretary of the
provincial hoard of health. This ia
not satisfactory to Dr. Fagan and he
desires The Miner to completely prostrate itself at his feet until his delicate organism shall have recovered
ils normal condition. It will not
require any special effort ou Dr. Fa-
gan's part to arrive at the conclusion
on reading these lines that Thc Miner
does not intend to grant   his request.
FAST ATLANTIC   PROPOSAL.
In a recent interview, Senator Ellis, of St. .lohn, N. II.. rpfeii'ing to
the plan to divert the importation of
810,000,000 worth of imports from
United Slates lo Eastern Canadian
ports, did not appear to have much
sympathy with the purpose of certain
Canadian hoards of trade to have
the preferential clause of the tariff,
which admits Hritish goods into Canada at a reduction of 33J. per cent, off
the regular schedule of dutle�� applying to United States and other foreign products, made Inoperative
when Hritish goods are imported
through 1'nited States ports. But
Mr. Ellis outlined another proposition
which is not open to the charge of
Implying special legislation hostile to
the United States. This has been
made to the government by Mr. R.
I!. Macaulay, a prominent Canadian
merchant, tvhn, during a recent business triii to England, worked out his
ideas somewhat 'n detail, and interested Hritish capitalists of undoubted
li uncial strength; those men, as he
states the case, stand leady to give
Canada the bust fast mail and freight
service across the Atlantic she has
ever had. What they would require of
the government is an annual subsidy
of 8500,000 for ten years, which is a
lower amount than has heretofore
been asked when enterprises of this
kind have been put forward. With
this subsidy guaranteed, thoy would
contract lo build and put in service
In two years' time a fleet of 10,000-ton
Steamships capable of making the
trip from Canada to England in li'.,
days, and fitted with lirst-class passenger accommodations, good freight
facilities and modern devices for the
safe carriage of perishable goods.
The capitalists aie ready to give results satisfactory to the government,
and are willing to submit to any
penalty if they fail in the performance of their contract, but tbey ask in
return   that   the     government    shall
SIMPLY SCANDALOUS.
A proposal to increase tin- amount
of the sessional indemnity of the
members of the legislature from shoo
to iJHIMI must be regarded as simply
scandalous in tlie present state of the
provincial finances. Vet in the supplementary estimates there are the
following votes:    Additional for clerk
of Tbe house,  81501 sergcant-at-arms,
S.V); extra pages, 8300; additional in-
demnlty for 38 members, 87,000;
contingent fund, Sii.ouo, making u.
total of (fin, loo.
We are convinced that the people of
the province will be practically unanimous   in   condemnation   ot   this increase of tho Indemnity   to   members.
enact certain   legislation   ulong lines  The   payment    which     thev     receive
is of very considerable length and of
great interest, is highly suggestive of
what a terrible scouigc war really is
to tlie health of the community, and
it must be borne well in mind that
all this shocking loss, which runs into several lens of thousands, has arisen out of quite a small war, judged by
continental standards. It is quite
clear that disease is very much more
fatal than thc death-dealing weapons
wherewith a contemporary army is
furnished, and this disease unfortunately, after the war is all over, levies its dreadful tax far and wide
among all classes of the '"immunity,
and thus penetrates deeply into civil
life. It is, therefore, from this economic point of view that war is after
all most to he. deprecated, and it is
certain that its ill-ell'eets last long
aftei peace has returned, and carry
forward the fell consequences of war
into succeeding generations,
Tho Toronto Telegram rises to remark : "People who say that Ralph
Smith, M. P., is no genuine working-
man have never heard him hustle on
a job of whitewashing for Uu- Laurier government."
Everyone will hope thai the movement to secure fur Nelson supplementary sittings of the supreme court
may bo successful. The government
will be acting wisely if it amends
the act so as lo give Nelson tho fa-
cltitles ill this respeei which Kootenay Is entitled to.
The mid-week half-holiday in Nelson has been very successfully Inaugurated. If we may judge hum the
comment    heard   among   citizens who
dlscssed the matter yesterday evening,
the arrangement meets with very
general approval and will be continued without   Interruption   during the
summer month*.
CURRENT COMMENT
oannot rightly he regarded as a salary. It is, as its name implies, an
indemnity to them for the expense
which they may respectively incur by
attending' tho session, and tlie present sum of 8000 is ample for that pui-
pose. Assuming that a session lasts
for six week., the present indemnity
is based on a rate of S.VI a week.
We are inclined lo think that a considerable number of the members do
not make more than that in their
respective occupations or professions,
whilst those who do earn or receive
linger Incomes could well afford to
forego any claim on the treasury.
In a matter of this kind the government is not wholly to blame. No
government would of its own initiative propose such a thing,being aware
that it would piohai'ly encounter
strong condemnation. '1 he proposal
has evidently been suggested hy private members and not alone by those
who support the government, But
tin- government is responsible for the
direction uf provincial affairs and
should not accede to any such demand.
What has arisen to justify this
claim foi an increase in the sessional
allowance'.1 on whit grounds do the
members of the present legislature
consider that they should receive
higher remuneration than the mem-
beis of the legislatures of the past'.1
They certainly cannot justly
the increase on the ground of
service, for there has not been
sum during many years in
time has been so lavishly wasted upon
useless discussions and frivolous motions as it has during thc present
session.
A few weeks ago the government
informed the house that the finances
were in such a had condition as to
render it absolutely necessary fn the
provincial revenue lax to be increased from $.') to 8", per caput, and not
withstanding the general condemnation which followed that proposal,
the government has insisted on legislation being passed to enable its future carriage into effect if the government shall so determine.
Now we have a proposal whereby
the amount which would be rewired
fiom the collection of ihe additional
��2 poll tax from 5,000 men. is to he
swallowed up in payment of an additional gratuity of $20(1 to each member of the house, together with the
incidental unnecessary "extras"
above noted.
With a deficit which, according lo
the estimates' and supplementary estimates for the present year, will
amount to over 8700,000, and for the
enusing year to probably 8500,000, it
is simply an outrage on the provincial
taxpayers to propose to pay this
additional and quite unnecessary
amount to the members of the legislature.
The people of the province may
well begin to ask, confronted by a
proposal such as this. What has become of thc "business-like adiiiinis
trillion'' which they were so freely
and so frequently promised,on the accession to office of the Hon. Mr.
Dunsmuir and his colleagues.���News-

A DEEP MYSTERY.
It is a mystery why women endure
Backache, Headache, Nervousness,
Sleeplessness, Melancholy, fainting
and Dizzy Spells when thousands
bave proved that Eleotlro Hitters will
quickly cure such troubles. "I suffered for years with kidney trouble,"
writes Mrs. I'hebe Cherley, of Peterson, la., "and a lame back pained
me so I could not dress myself, but
Electric Hitters wholly cured me,
and, although 711 years old, I now am
able to do all my housework." It
overcomes Constipation, tmpioves Appetite, gives perfect health. Only 50c.
at the Canada Drug at Hook Co.
DOES IT BAY TO  BUY CHEAP?
A cheap remedy for coughs and colds
is all right, but "you want something
that will relieve and -cure the more
severe anl dangerous results of throat
and lung troubles What shall you
do? Go to a warmer and more regular climate? Yes, if possible: if not
possible for you, then in either case
take thc only remedy that has been
introduced in all civilized countries
with success in severe throat and lung
troubles, "Hoschce's German Syrup."
It not only heals and stimulates the
tissues to destroy the germ disease,
but allays inflammation, causes easy
expectoration, gives a good night's
rest, and cures the patient. Try one
bottle. Recommended many years by
all druggists in the world. For sale

THINK SO!
Tin- Minister's Mire Was KiKlit.
When a baby's life can be saved by
food it is worth while knowing something of that food.
A minister's wife, name given below, writes: "1 do not exaggerate in
tho least when I say that 1 have never yet seen a picture of the starving
babies of India that looked as bad as
our baby did. The skin was drawn
as tightly as possible over tier little
frame, and was almost black. Her
little form was so shrunken that it
was pitiable to look at. Her bright
eyes only showed that  she was   alive.
She was starving to death, fair everything she ate was Immediately thrown
oil' from her stomach. We tried every
kind of food wc could think of, and
only kept her alive by rubbing olive
ami cod liver oil into the poics of
the skin.
The doetor was   doing all   till could,
but finally we lent for an uncle, an
old physician, to come ami see her.
The doctors agreed perfectly, but iin-
ele advised us to use (linpe-Nuts Food.
We Immediately got some and placed a spoonful in some boiling water.
This was allowed to simmer until the
food became perfectly soft. A little
rich milk was added, and just enough
sugar to sweeten. It made a dclici-
ions food, and it was astonishing how
perfectly it agreed with our baby and
she did lick it down.
She would not drink milk unless it
bad llrnpe-Nuts in it thereafter.
Alter a few days she began to show
marks of Improvement, then she improved very rapidly. When wo began
feeding hoi (Irape-Nuts she weighed
about in pounds, now she weighs over
SO uud is almost as broad as she is
long.
Our friends all think it a miracle
that she recovered, While I am writing this letter, one of toy older girls
has just come up, begging for some
Grupe-Nuts and cream.
Wc naturally believe   in Otapo-Nuts
for it has saved the life of our baby.'
