Eleventh Year
TRADE WITH
AUSTRALIA
What the Southern Colonies
Suggest for Conference.
documents was mado in the case of
the Payne Consolidated vs. Wilson.
P. E. Wilson appeared for the plaintiff and S. S. Talyor for the
defendant.
All Favor   Preferences   for
British Trade  and
Shipping.
Montreal, Feb. G.--The Star's Lol-
don cable says: The Australian ministers clearly mean business at the
coronation conferonee regarding trade.
Mr. Wise, attorney general of New
South Wales, suggests an Australian
rebate on customs duties on all goods,
llritish and foreign, imported in British bottoms. The idea of Including
foreign goods in the preference is to
avoid contravention of the most favored nations clause. Mr. Barton, the
federal premier of Australia, approves
the suggestion and Mr. Sedden, the
premier for New Zealana, is willing
to give a customs rebate on British
and not foreign goods imported to
New Zealand in British bottoms.
It is thought these early colonial
advances are made in the hope of
strengthening that seotion of the
llritish cabinet which would welcome
some measure of British reoipiocity
with tha colonies, as part of the forthcoming British Budget. In budget
matters, however, Sir Michael Hicks-
Ileach has hitherto been supreme and
he has always flouted the preferential
idea. Though the Canadian government is not known in the best informed circles here to be taking any fresh
step in regard to fast mail service, the
subject was much discussed at last
night's dinner of the Canadian club.
The impression seemed to prevail that
ncthing adequate or effective cau be
done until the C. P. R. is invited by
the Canadian government to undertake
the project with an increase of the
subsidy beyond the $750,000 already
enacted by the Canadian parliament.
No doubt is felt that tbe British government would assent to co-operate in
any inceased subsidy if the C. P. H.
were directly concerned. Sydney has
gained many influential lriends lately
as a terminal port. Its adoption in
place of Quebec would necessitate only
three instead of fonr steamers. It is
snggested that the Intercolonial railway would poshibly be transferred to
the C. P. R. as a part of the deal.

IN CHAM HERS.
Yesterday  Before  His  Honor   Judge
Forin.
In chambers yesterday before Judge
Korin in the case of Bremner vs,
Arlington MineB, Mr. Wbeallor, for
the defendant, applied to have a por
tion of the plaintiff'B plea set aside

with plaintiff's statement of claim. 8,
8. Taylor appeared for the plaintiff.
The application was dismissed with
costs against the defendant.
In Imperial Mines vs. Valparaiso,

ACTION AGAINST TRAMWAY.
Does Not Know the Man Who Got
Him to Begin Proceedings.
The writ in the suit of C. W. A.
Neill for $04,000 against the Nelson
Elcjtrie Tramway company, for
neglecting to comply with some of the
regulations of the C'unada Railway
Act, has been served through Dumble-
ton and Bond, of Victoria, ou Macdonald and Johnson, solicitors tor the
company, and tbey havo entered an
appearance. So far the detailed statement of the claim has not been delivered and until that is done how this
amount is arrived at can only be
guessed.
Referring to the initial proceedings
lhe Viotoria Colonist says:
A writ for the sum of $94,000 has
been issued against the New Vancouver Coal company, of Nanaimo, for
an alleged infraction ot tbe Railway
Act. Behind the scenes in this claim,
whioh is one made for forfeitures and
pecnalties under chapter, Victoria
31, sections 100, 300, 303 and 304 of
the Dominion Railway Act, and
amendments, is a strange story. The
plaintiff, as given by the writ, is
Charles William A. Neill, of Victoria,
who, as the writ says, sues on behalf
of himself and His Majesty tbe King.
As a matter of fact, Neill says he sues
on behalf of someone else also other
than His Majesty the King, and this
somebody prefers to remain in the
background.
Neill is the runner for the Dawson
hotel, and according to the story
given by him to a Colonist reporter
yesterday, all ho knows of the action,
is that he signed some papers at the
request of a man, whose name, he
deolared, he did not know. According
to the stoiy then told by Neill, tbe
action is being taken in his name on
behalf of another, an unknown as far
as he is concerned.
Tho action is taken to clai^n the
sum of $04,1100 as forfeitures and
penalties because of the alleged failure of the Now Vnancouver Coal company to file returns showing the
amount of business, accidents and
other details, as required by the
statutes of the Railway Act above
quoted with the Dominion government. A similar action, and for an
equally large amount, has been taken
against the Nelson Electrio Tramway
company, Neill being again named
as thc plaintiff in the writ; but, as
he says, all that he knows, is that he
signed some papers, and tbo action as
taken by another whose name he says,
he does not know.
MORE MEMBERS DESIRED.
Matters  Before   Council   of    Nelson
Board of Trade.
The council of the board of trade
met last night with President Holt in
the chair. It was resolved to submit
a recommendation to the next regular
meeting of tha council directing tne
secretary to prepare and send out a
circular letter inviting merchants and
business men to join the board of
trade. It was deoided to recommend
to the board the adoption of resolutions of condolence to the family of
the late J. Roderick Robertson. Mr.
Robertson was one of the delegates
appointed to attend the meeting of the
Associatsd Boards of Trade, and Pres-
lent Holt appointed J. J. Campbell to
fill the avcancy caused by Mr. Robertson's death. The delegation to the
Associated Boards of Trade will consist of President Holt, H. Bunyan,
snd J. J. Campbell.
Considerable discussion was had as
to the desirability of having a pre
vinoial exhibit in tbe exposition to be
held in St. Lonis. All present were
favorable to having snch an exhibit
and it was decided to present a recommendation to the provincial authorities requesting them to make an appropriation ao that British Columbia
may be properly represented at the big

How Rev. Henry Irwin Game
to   His   Untimely
End.
Declined to Reveal His Identity   or   Antecedents.
Montreal, Feb. 6.���The remains of
Rev. H. Irwin, (Father Pat) who
died iu the Hotel Dieu hospital here
recently after being found wandering
in the woods at Sanlt Au Recollet,
suffering from exposure, will not be
sent to Vancouver but will be shipped
iu a few days to England.
An official of Hotel Dieu says the
patient was brought there in a most
distressing condition early in January. He refused to give any information concerning himself or relatives,
but talked about everything else
freely. A Bhort time before death he
embraced the Roman Catholic faith,
but it was not until aftor his body
had been removed to the cemetery tha
his identiity was discovered. This
was through a package addressed to a
brother with whom the hospital
authorities hnd placed themselves in
communication. How he got to Montreal and what be did before his discovery in tho woods, nearly dead, is a
mystery.

Arrested.
Pittsburg, Feb. 0.���Word comes tonight from Butler, to the effect that
Mrs. Soffel, tbe accomplice of the
Biddle brothers is considerably worse
and the developments in her case are

wound seems to be healing, but sho
takes very little nourishment and ber
mental condition is desoirbed as approaching collapse.
Harry Biddle,tho brother of the men
Whose bodies were burled yesterday,
says the grave will be protected indefinitely from vandals, by armed
guards. Today he made formal application to be appointed exeoutor of the
estate of Edward and Jack. He claim
that the former, when first arrested

and tbe latter $200 In oash.
Arranging ThatRusslan Bankers Build Manchurian
Railway.
Ghlna Desires Equal Rights
for  All  Allen   Nations.
Pekin, Feb. 0.~The British, American and Japanese ministers here have
renewed their opposition to the Manchurian arrangements between China
and RussiE. It is probable tbat this
action will result in the further postponement of the consummation of this
treaty.
The powers in opposition to the
Manchurian treaty aie now beginning
to recognize the force of the representations of the Chinese plenipotentiaries that China is making the best
terms possible for herself and incidentally for the equal rights of the
other nations in China and are shifting their protests to Russia as the
responsible party. Paul Lessar, the
i.ussian minister hero, is endeavoring
to maintain the transparent diplomatic fiction that the Manchurian
treaty and the Russo-Chinese bank
agreement are not related. He has
informed his colleagues that the Russian government bas no official
knowledge of the negotiations of the
Russo-Chinese bank.
The Russian agents are playing their part with the greatest regard
for appearances, while M. Lessar is
arranging the treaty with China. In
the light of the statements of Chinese
ufficials which were repeated yesterday, namely that Russia insists upon
the simultaneous signing, of the Manchurian treaty and the bank agreement, the representations of M.Lessar
fail to carry weight. The native
newspapers are filled with stories that
Russia is trying to gain her ends by
offers of heavy tribes.
Germany remains a disinterested
spectator of the affair. The correspondent here of tne Associated Press
has seen a draft of the agreement.
This provides that China shall build
all railways ana develop all mines in
Manchuria. If Bhe is unable to command the capital, she shall apply to
the bank. If the bank is unab'e or
unwilling to entei into arrangements,
China may apply elsewhere for capital. The final clause stipulates that
the agreement shall in no wise impair
the existing rights of other nations,
whioh clause is ralpably nullified by
the preceding conditions.
DANISH ISLANDS CEDED.
Terms of Treaty By Whch Tbey Pass
to United States.
Washington, Feb. O.-The full text
of the treaty between tho United
States and Denmark for the cession of
tho Danish West Indian islands was
made publio today. The purchase
price is given aB $5,000,000. The treaty
specifies that Denmark agrees to cede
to the United States immediately upon
the exohange of ratifications ot the
conventions, tho islands of St.
Thomas, St John and St. Croix in the
West Indies, with the adjacent islands
and rocks, comprising in said cession
all the title and claims of title to tbe
territory inland about said islands
over whioh the crown of Denmark
now exercises, asserts or claims jurisdiction. It is set forth, however, that
the consummation of the cession dees
not impart the transfer to the United
States ot the financial claims now held
by Denmark against tbe colonial
treasures of the islands, it being
agreed that these claims are altogether extinguished in consequence of
the cession.
The title conveys to the United
States tbe absolute feo and ownership
of all public, government or crown
lands, public buildings, ports, harbors, fortifications, barracks and all
other public property of every kind
and description belonging to the government of Denmark, it being, however agreed that the arms and military stores existing in tbe islands at
the time remain the property of the
government and shall, as soon as circumstances permit, be removed by it.

POLITICAL   PRISONERS    ESCAPE.
Colombian Rebels Kill the Gaoler and
Several of tho Garrison.
Colon, Feb. 0.���The rumor that the
steamer Libertalor, now operating in
the interests of the Matos revolution
against President Castro, of Venezuela, bad been sunk at Puerto
Colombia by a Venezuelan man-of-war
is unfounded. According to the news
received here today the Libertador
was at Cartagena, Colombia, last
Saturday and left Sunday, after coaling and taking on board supplies, for
an unknown destination.
Other news received here today from
Cartagena is to the effect that 91
political prisoners who were lodged in
prison in that oity managed to make
their way out on Februiiry 1st. Their
escapo was attended by a Berious
affray in which tho commander of the
prison and the fort and several others

Company Makes Strong Fight
to Win on Preliminaries. ���
Victoria, Feb. 8.���In the Supreme
couit today before the Hon. Mr. Justice Martin, Mr.Cassidy, K.C., counsel
for the White Pass and Yukon railway
moved lor un order dismissing the
actions brought as test cusor by claimants, who seek to reoover enormous
sums of nioney lrom the railway company on the gronndB that the company's freight charges were extortionate aud exaoted in tho absence of legal
authority. The two cases heard today
W e those brought by the Upper
Yukon Con.Co., and Joseph Clcarihne,
the claimants being represented by
Frank Higgins and R   T. Elliott.
Mr. Cassidy in an able and exhaustive argument occupying several hours
forcihly presented the railway's side
of the case.
Mr. Higgins in reply cited the provisions of the Railway Act relied on
by the claimants and also several canes
decided by the House of Lords, in
England, and by th�� Supreme court
of Canada, establishing the right of
the action claimed.
In giving his decision Mr. Justice
Martin said that insofar as related to
the question of the American territory
and to the arguments brought forward
against the powers of the Canadian
parliament to regnlate rates, his lordship confined hinsclf to an expression
of opinion that these were questions
of so great importance that he could
not accede to the contention of the
railway company that they were so
far settled as to bind him to take
judicial notice of them for the purpose
of dismissing these actions aud that
be entertained some doubts as to the
power cf the railway company to
"approbate and reprobate"; that 1b,
to obtain a charter and secure the
benefit thereof, and thou to disavow
the obligation imposed thereby. He,
therefore, dismissed the railway company's motions with costs and the
actions will go on fur trial.

TELEGRAMS WITHOUT WIRES.
The Miner has called attention to
the methods pursued by the Canadian
Pacific railway in its shameless effort
to hoodwink the people and by ap-
p:als to patrotism to aid in bringing
about an utterly selfish end. Through
the publication of inspired editorials
and dispatches tbe attempt was made
to crenU a hostile sentiment towardi
legitimate enterprises which are ailing greatly in the development of British Columbia. For a time tho floodgates were stopped probably through
shame at being exposed when engaged
in work which waB next door to
nefarious. Still uot one of these ex-
nosed journals has yet shown any
signs of repentance nor hove they offer,
ed any explanation of their conduct; on
the contrary, one or two of them have
commence- to reiterate some of the arguments of the former crusade, for a
cause which has not even oue legitimate leg to stand on. The public
think, however, from the very complete exposure of tlie attempt to deceive, tbat no self respecting journal
should havo tho hardihood to recommence the crusade on the saino lines,
but still this has aud is being done.
One of the alleged dispatches, whicb
was prepared by the agent of the C.
P. R.| who is ono of the most talented
newspaper men in Canada, was pub'
lishcd in the Vancouver Province and the Nelson Tribune, and ro
printed in the Rossland Miner, purported to have been sent from Fort
Steele. The Fort Steele Prospector
makes the following satirical remarks
concerning this alleged dispatch
"Marconi has made wonderful steps
in wireless telegraphy, and perhaps
a rival of Marconi is working a
grapevine from Fort Steele to the
coast. From investigation we are
certain that no such reports aa published in tbe provincial papers were
sent out from Fort Steele."
Thc explanation is simple. All the
dispatches and editorials wore prepared by the individual who spent a
couple of weeks in the Kootenays.
Thej were typewritten and distributed
around among tlie papers which are
under the influenco ol tho Canadian
Pacifio railway, with instructions to
fire tbem off at certain dates. As per
schedule they were duly discharged.
They were so much alike, however,
and as the same language was used in
some of the sentences, it led to a
comparing of notes, and a realization
of the true inwardness of the crusade.
The editor of tho Kamloops Sentinel
was offered some of tbo typewritten
articles for publication io his paper
by trusted agents of the railway oompany and he, acting in the interests of
tve people, ana doubtlesB anery at
the idea that anyone should think him
so ignoble that ho could be induced to
take part in such a selfish campaign,
exposed the whole plot, making It ono
of the most complete fiascos ever
witnessed.
WANTED���A F1UE CHIEF.
The city of Nelson is advertising
for a chief for the fire department. A
number of applications have been
received for the position. Western
cities arc built of inflammable
material and a number of them have
suffered from the dire offcits of large
conflagrations. Within the last voir
or two Now Westminster and Sandon
wero virtually swept out of existence
by large Hies and many of thoir citizens, who were ailluent, were reduced
to poverty by reason of these disasters. Nelson has so far escaped a
serious conflagration. Precautions
have been taken in time against flros
by maintaining a paid flrejdepartment,
by establishing fire limits, inside of
which the erection of wooden buildings is prohibited,and by furnUliingan
adequate water supply. It has been determined by the city authorities that
tbe chief of the lire department shall
bo as competent a fireman as can bo
secured for tho salary paid. What is
wanted is a firtt class, experienced
fireman, a cool, resolute man, who
will not lose his bead dining the excitement which attends tho suppression of fires. He must be a good disciplinarian and at the same time bo
able to command the respect of his
subordinates to tbe extent that  thoyj
will look up to him and obey all his
eo't'mandi the moment tbey are given,
even in the fare of great danger.
Pieferably the position should be
given to a home fireman, but if no
competent man can be secured at home
then a selection should be made from
the applicants from other communities. Too desire is to secure a
thoroughly competent man and the
position should be awarded to the best
qualified among the applicants. Tho
place is ono that should not bo
filled by a weakling.
FIRST AID TO INJURED.
The question of flrst aid to thc in-
jored continues to be agitated by the
papers throughout the west. In conversation with those connected with
thc mining industry, including mine
owners and workers, the opinion is
unanimous that something in the
nature of a system should be adopted
so that suffering may be alleviated
and lives tometimes saved before tho
arrival of a physician after accidents
have occurred. One suggestion is
tbat the physicians whom the mine
employes pay should ou the occasions
of his visits to mines, or at any other
suitahlo time, give instructions to
men selected lrom among the employes, as to what should be done in
the way of first aid. In a short time
a number could be instructed in thi
way,who would be of groat service to
those who are so unfortunate as to be
Injured. The mine owners should, it
is thought, supply the bandages, temporary splints, ten n in nets, and medicines It is understood that one of the
physicians ot Nelson intends within a
short time to deliver a lecture on the
subject of "First Aid to the Injured."
EDITORIAL NOTE?.
The productive life of tho Klondike
is to be extended considerably by the
exploitation ol the quartz mines. Re
ports from Dawson say that the two
quartz mills, which have been put up
there, cannot handle all of the ore
that is offered for crushing. Many
quartz mines have been opened and
rich ledges found. There is a demand
for more stamp mil la.

The Pan-American eongrets, which
opened in Mexico on October 11th, has
not beon the marked success that some
of its ptojeetors hoped it would be.
There Iibb been a great deal of jealousy and rivalry displayed by the
South American republics, aud for a
while it was feared that the congress
would fail to agree on a single question. The congress finally, however,
has agreed to accept the principles of
The Hague convention in regard to
international arbitration. This result was attained principally through
the strenuous exertions of the United
States and Mexico.
Miss Stone, the American missionary captured by brigands, has been a
few days over five months in captivity.
She was captured ou Sept. 3rd of last
yeai. The sum of $61,000 has been
raised by popular subscription to pay
tho ransom demanded. So far, however, United States Consul Dickinson
has been unable to obtain her release.
Consul Dicliinsoif4 and thc board ol
foreigu missions have tbe sum demanded for Miss Stone's release, but
notwithstanding al! their efforts thby
have been unable to secure the desired
end. Perhaps, if thc United States
sent a warship or two to take possession of a Turkish custom house, following the example of France, the
Sultan might bestir himself to secure
the release of the unfortunate woman,
who must be weary ol hsr captivity.
The Dunsmuir government is mak-
lnga desperate effort to prolong its
life,but does not appear to be me ting
with any alarming degree of success,
says the Nelson Economist. The truth
is, no one has any faith in Mr. Dunsmuir or his cabinet, and no number
of fair promises will restore the government to favor. Premier Dunsmuir
and his government have been given a
fair trial, and if anything has been
demonstrated it is that he and his
cabinet have been most conspicuous
failures from the standpoint of statesmanship. They have undertaken nothing and consequently it is not surprising that they have not accomplished anything. The country is in
just as bad shape as it was nnder tne
benign rule of Cory Ryder and Joseph
Mnrtin, and no beneflcient change
may be expected until Dunsmuir's
government is turned ont. The time
for this iB happily approaching, nnd
then we may look for a change in
bnsibeas all aiound. ]

There is uoth ing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, oven in t e worst
oases.   It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, o Villa Ridge,
111., Bays: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received iu good oondition. 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
yenrs. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, As-
llimii, nnd thought you bad overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial acted like a
charm.    S��nd me a full size bottle.

Its success is astonishing and wonderful.
After having it carefully analyzed, we oan state that Asthmalene oontains

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmnlene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been nfflcted with apasmodic a^sthma for th" past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill ns well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 Ih street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of ABthmalena.
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 afflioted with this distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D. PHELPS), M. D.

��� Tlie   Neepawa   intends   to ship  100
tons ol ore per month.
Tlir jiosun near New   Denver   shipped forty tons of ore last week.

iiwny from the Slooan lake

expected    that
will   be   much
I'lilina Anpriynon is busy hauling
100 tons of Marion ore to the wharf,
says the New Denvor Ledge. The
.silver Mountain road is impassable at
a point close to New Denver and it ia
necessary to unload and reload at tho
dangerous point. It will consequently
be a month yet before all the ore ls
sent from thc whurf.
Tlie Hartney, says the New Denvor
Leilge, intends to send out a carload
of ore tiiis week. The Hartney is
looking well. The long tunnel being
driven to tap the lead ISO feet below
the upper workings will reaoh the
ledge in about 85 feet, when, If the
ore body encountered above is found,
stoping ground will be opened up and
the mine made a steady shipper.
A few days more work will complete the upraise on the Nettie L.
This will give a depth from the surface of over 4nU feet and about 259 feet
clear of stoping ground, says the
Trnut Lake Topic. Besides the lead
from which the ore was takon last
year and which ls likely to furnish a
great portion of the 8t)0 tons which it
is intended shall be got out before
sleighing breaks up. Tbe men work-
in? on tho upraise havo beon following on Ihe footwall a streak of from
ii to 18 inches of fine ore. Answering
0 question put to him by J. J. Sulli
van, Wm. Pool, the manager of the
mine, Baid that he expected to 6end
out before sleighing breaks up from
BOO to 1,000 tons of ore. Continuing
he said tbat It was the. intention of
tho company to keep on shippin ore
all summer, this being rendered possible by the fact that a good wagon
road was now constructed to the
lower workings through whioh all the
ore mined in the future will be
delivered.
The completion of the new upraise
besides employing a greatly inoreased
force of men means greater expedition
in getting out ore. LaBt year the
great bulk of tbe shipments had to be
windlassed from the stopes to the
upper tunnel, now, all ore mined will
be dumped into chutes penetrating to
tlic loner tunnel and delivered from
these to the ore-house by car, a method
infinitely more expeditious than the
former.
The opening up ef spring and tbe
commencement of navigation ought to
see awaiting snipment at Trout Lake
at leeast 1,500 tons of ore furnished
by the two principal mines of the district, the Nettie L. and Silver Cup,
and before the end of this year lt is
not too much to expect that at least a
thousand tons more will be added to
this amount, tbe contributions of ull
the other developing properties,
together with what tbe Nettie L.
people will mine in addition. This
with the opening up of the new railway is likely to create a prosperity
which will amply reward those who
have waited so long and so patiently
for the much talked of boom.

The currying out of Unit demand

FERNIE TOWNSITE LOTS.
Government  Did  Not Select Its Share
and Now Wants Present Value.
It seems the fate of companies  with
which James J. Hill and the Great
Northern are conneoted, to bave fights
with the Dunsmuir government. Word
has been received heie that the Craw's
Nest Ooal company and the authorities are at loggerheads. The cause is
the allotment of lands in the coal
(own of Fernie.
Under the law the government is
entitled to one-fourth of the town,
the company to tho rest. The^com-
pany asked the lands and works department to go ahead with its locating some time ago, but from causes
not at present mado public that course
was not adopted. The company could
not wait for red tape at Victoria so it
sold property in the town and gave
guarantees tbat it would hand over
the title in due course.
The other day the government started to make its choice of blocks and
lhe first selection it made waa of the
block on which the Royal hotel stands
and on which also are the handsome
offices of the coal company end other
valuable improved properties. Tbe
coal company, of course, suppose that
the government would be willing to
hand the blocks over in return for the
money received from the lots. Bnt to
Its indignation the lands and works
department declined to take that
t'ourso,   but claimed  instead that  lt
Some Difficulties That Have Been
Experienced in Times Past.
Though the ice on Arrow Lakes
has been heavy this year, its thickness
ls not a record since steam navigation
was started on the lakes, and now the
steamers are better equipped to contend with tbis obstacle than they over
were before.
Relating what has taken place in
past years, Capt. Gore said that up
to 1803 the supply of provisions for
Nelson for the whole winter had to
bo brought ir. in the fall and tbe vos-
sels were laid off. Iu 1804 a scow was
fixed up as a ice breaker and though
there was difficulty navigation waB
kept open. The scow was only 24
feet wide and was shod with Iron. It
was so narrow that the broken ice
grated against the sides of the vessel
and damaged it much, besidos imped-
ng its progress. Tbe iron plates
became dislodged so often that they
carried a gang of carpenter? along to
do repairs when needed. The iee was
only seven inches thick that year and
the vessels wore kept running witb a
lair degree of regularity.
The worst year Captain Gore remembers was that of the winter of
1897-8, whon iee to tlie thickness of 1
inches formed. For three days the
mercury at some time or other went
down to 25 degrees below zero and
the cold weather continued for upward of three weeks. The wind seems
torconcentrate the cold air at the narrows and ice forms there whon cold
weather is not though of at any
other part of the Kootenays. That year
there was much wind, which impeded
the vessels while the snow Inthe water
and ou tho iee raised the ice breaker a
foot higher than its usual level. The
breaker previously in use had been
widened lo 38 feet making it much
more effective and another had been
built to avoid towing one for about 20
miles. Coming down one time the
wind impeded the vessel aud the ice
formed so fast that be was frozen in.
Ue was obliged to lay up one day and
cut wood and the next would fight
the ice. It took bis steamer 17 days
to make 20 miles at a point opposite
Fire Valley.
J During tile past cold snap the ice
was \2 inches thick but as the ice
breakers are of a better pattern and
wider than the steamers tbe vessels
had always been able to make the
trip in fairly guod time. At one part
of tha triu it takes the vessels three
hours to make 15 miles, whereas it is
usually done ln abont an bour and a
half, so that the steamers bave been
irom an hour to two hours late. There
are now three ice breakers employed,
one at Arrowhead, another below
Nakusp and the third oppoeite Fire
Valley. The snow of Sunday night
was an additional hindrance and that
night a part of the engine gave way
wbich caused the only important
delay of the winter. The obstacles
were not now so great but tbeie would
be ice to contend with for some time
yet.
There has been Borne trouble in
keeping tha way open to the Molly
Gibson landing and all day Wednesday a steamer was engaged at that
and yesterday 100 tons of ore was
taken down.
At Kootenay landing the steamer
occupies all its spare time breaking
ice and when tied up at the whari the
wheel is kept goirg to drive the loose
ice out into the stream and by which
it is carried away by the current of
the river. At no other places has the
company had difficulty with the ice

The N. P. A. A. 0. regatta winch
will be held at Nelson next July, will
probably be tho most important event
of the sort which will occur here for
Bonie years, as tbe other towns which
are members of the association must
have their turn in rotation. Portland
generously gave way to NelBon this
year with the understanding that
their turn would come in lflOii when
they will hold their Fair. The clubs
which will probably be represented
here are Vancouver, Victoria, and
Portland, who will send three senior
fours, threo junior fours, besides
doubles and singles, this means the
crews themselves and their odd men
and managers. Rales are being arranged with all the railway companies from ooast and other points and
people will undoubtedly take advantage of these rates, especially from
the coast. The crews and their associates   will   have   to spend at   least a
week in Nelson which moans much to
the town from   a   financial   point   of
view.

Fires are placed each night over the
ground where the excavations are
being made along the channel of
Cottonwood creek, so as to permit of
its being dug out in the day time. It
is not likely that the creek will behave like it did last spiing lor some

any chances in the matter.

At midnight last night, the birth of
the year aocording to Chinese traditions, was ushered in with feasting
and much ring of crackers and musio
from a variety of unmusical instruments in Chinatown. According to the
Chinese reckoning, which starts anew
with the birth of a new emperor, the
present is the 38th year, that being the
age of tbe present ruler. By this
method of calculation a man might
be born in the year 50 and die in the
year 4:;, and to claim to have been
born in the year 1 would not entitle
him to any especial distinction.

MAKE CHILDREN BKA1NY
Proof About Feeding.
It has been proved times without
number that properly selected food
will build,up the brain. The testimony of a school teacher on this subject is good. The letter is long aud
only the important tacts will be given.
"While I was teaching school in
IBM, a little girl in tlie household
where 1 lived was very fond of drape-
Nuts nnd would eat all she was
allowed. I noticed lhat she wns a
remarkably bright pupil. There wen
five other Children, all of one family,
tbat were so marked in tlieir work.
They were really the brightest family
I ever knew, so I questioned to find
what tlic.v were using. Thoy replied
'Only drape-Nuts.' I learned upon
further Inquiry that this was thair
chief diet for breakfast and discovered
that tlieir luncheon consisted generally of Grape-Nuts with cream and a
little truit.
I had suffered from dyspepsia,headaches and general debility greatly
and. I knew, my diet was nut well
selected, I took up Grape-Nuts Breakfast Food and carried it to school for
luncheon. I soon discovered a change
in my condition and found that Grape
Nuts afforded more norishment than
bread, meat, eggs or anything that I
could take in my basket. After
luncheon I would feel strong and
bright for the afternoon's work while
before I had frequently oeen half ill.
In the spring of 1900 I went to college, rented a room and boarded myself, subsisting largely Ontlrape-Nuts,
and I can not speak too hignly of the
food as a brain nourishcr. At the end
of a year's schooling I obtained a
position in one of tho ward schools
in this, a college town, and am well
and happy.
The wife of the college principal
tells me that there is no food that
agrees with her as well as (Irape-
Nuts and thnt testimony v;ns repeated
by a lady friend in my own home."

3. Fred Hume this week received
some letters from England enclosed ln
which were some of the first issue of
stamps on which the head of King
Edward in engraved. The stamps
are considered to be imperfect and are
to be withdrawn from circulation, so
will soon be quite valuable. The
head of the king shows a scar and
accentuates his bnldnesBvery strongly.
The expression on tbe face is also
anything but a happy one and the
head is turned towards the left wheu
it should have faced towards the
right, the rule being that the head of
each successive monarch on the stamps
shall look in opposite direction from
that of his predecessor.
Work on the construction of the

It was thought that the death of J.
Roderick Robertson would cause some
slight delay in the work, part of his
missiou to New York having been to
consult Hon. John Hogart, the famous
New York hydraulic engineer, regarding the plans, which had been prepared by that gentleman. Mr. Kobertson, however, had things so arranged
that, as he himself once said, if ho
should die suddenly everything oould
be carried right along without
interruption.

contributions toward tho supper to thn
Phair Hotel on Monday afternoon.
They are also asked to remember that
thc date has been fixed for Monday
next, not Tuesday, as was at first
suggested. Tickets have beon placed

Considerable praise was heard yesterday on the streets of D McDonald,
who made such a plucky rescue of D.
Heddle, not R. Heddle as appeared in
yesterday's issue, from the waters of
the lake. When tbe coat sleeve was
held out to Mr. Heddle his hands had
beoome so numoed that ho could not
close his fingers on the fabric sufficiently to get a hold. He was propped
up on his elbows on the ice at the
time and finally managed to squeeze
the fingers of his right hand around
the end with his left elbow, and then
was pulled up far enough for the other
to catch the collar of his coat. Oo
the ire he was too exhausted to stand
and had to be dragged and carried to
the cabin on the shore, where a fire
was made and some water heated,
after drinking which he was sufficiently recovered to, be able to walk
across to the other side to Mr. Mac-
dcnald's ranch,

GEORGE WASHINGTON'S   QDEUE.
It  Had   a Luxuriant Suit of  Straight
and Very Daik Hair.
The Father offllis Country concoaled
a luxuriant suit of hair beueath his
queue wig. Many now wish the old
fashion were in vogue, to conceal
thinnel hair or baldness. Yet no cine
need have thin hair nor be bald, if he
cures the dandruff that causes both.
Dandruff can not be cured by scouring
tbe scalp, because it is a germ disease
and the germ has to be killed.
Newbro's Herpicide kills the dandruff
germ���no other hair preparation will
"' Destroy tho cause, you remove the
effect." There's no cure for dandruff
but to kill the germ.
