Russian Minister of Interior
Shot Down Yesterday.
FROM HEALTH TO HEATH.
Circumstances   Similar
Those of McKlnley's
Murder.
to
St. Petersburg, April IB.���Tbe minister of the interior, M. Sipiaguino.
was shot and fatally wounded at 1
o'clock this afternoon in the lobby of
tlie ministerial oftices by a man who
held a pistol close to the minister's
person. The wounded man died
at 2 p. in.
It waB learned later that M. Slpia-
guino was on his wav to attend a
meeting ot the committee of ministers.
He had just entered the office oi the
Imperial council when the assassin,
wbo had driven up iu a carriage,
approached and handed him a folded
paper, saying he had been charged to
deliver it by the Grand Duke Sergius.
The minister stretched out his hand to
take the document when the assassin
fiied five shots at him, three of the
bullets striking him and one wounding his servant.
The assassin did not resist arreBt.
He said his name was Salselianste and
that he was a student at Kieff where
he was sentenced to compulsory military service for participation in tho
riots of 1001. Be said he was subsequently pardoned bnt that he had not
been reinstated at the university and
that he therefore revenged himself
upon M. Sipiaguino. The minister
was taken to the hospital where he
died in one bour.

ENROLLMENT BEGINS,
Brussels, April 15.���The government
hns firmly declined to yield on the
question ot revision and unless King
Leopold should override the government,there seems to be nothing to pre>
vent the development of a serious
situation.
In the chamber of deputies this
afternoon,M. Nujean presented a manifesto on Vehalf of the Liberal members of the Leftists, demanding dissolution in order to enable the country
to pronuonce on the revision question.
This manifesto pointed out that the
time was critical ar.d the country
threateued with civil war and for tne
government to consent to a loyal and
legishitional dissolution, could not be
represented as a surrender to popular
disorder.
To this challenge, the premini, M.
Lesmet de Nayer, replied by declaring
that the right of dissolution rested
with the King. He added that be felt
it bis duty to warn parliament
against the rumors of government
concessions.
Tomorrow the Socialist members of
the chamber will present their demand for universal suffrage. This
will eventully be defeated, and it is
feared that this defcit will lead to
trouble particularly in the provinces.
The authorities have taken extraordi-.
nary measures to avert disorders. The
strike movement in Brussels and its
environments is of a minor character
but in the industrial districts it is
today more formidable than ever,
Some dynamite outrages have been
reportd from Renan, in Flanders. The
legislative department of the international socialist bureau has issued a
manifesto appealing to workers in all
countries to support them in their
struggle against reactions.
London, April IC.���It is understood,
says the Brussels correspondent of the
Daily Telegraph, that at the last
council, King Leopold insisted upon
the necessity of granting univerasl
suffrage.
INTERNATIONAL CHESS.
Hanover lias Arranged For Tournament of the Masters.
Hanover, April 15.���It was announced today that the grand international chess tournament under the
joint auspices of the German Chess
association and the Hanover Chess
elub will begin on Mondav, July ?1,
although the cougress will officially
be opened the Saturday before. On
this day all the preliminaries, such as
the pairing of the players will be
arranged. Up to the preent the Hanover club has reoeived the following
entries: Pillsbury, Marshall, and
Napier, America; Blackburn, Teich-
maun, Mason and Lasker, Great
Britain; Janowski, France; Alapin
and Tachigorin, Russia; Morcozy,
Schlechter, Wolf and Marco, Austro-
Hungary; Wiilbrod', Scbeve. Mieses
and Tarrasch, Germany.
London, April Hi.���The Daily Mail
iu its issue of this morning says that
it understands that a serious hitch
hBs occurred In thc peace negotiations
in South Africa. The cabinet iu
council has deciled to refuse a
btronply worded requebt from the
Hoer leaders al Pretoria for an armistice pending the negotiations. This
alone is not likely to cause the Boers
to withdraw from the conference, says
the Daily Mail, but what threatens to
stop the negotiations is the (act that
the government declines tc place the
later Cape rebels on the same footing
aa the burghers with respect to
amnesty, and is not inclined to withdraw the banishment proclamation.
These features are regarded by the
Boers as two cardinal points in the
irreducible minimum of terins which
Lord Milner, the British high commissioner in South Africa, went to
Pretoria to ascertain and in return for
whieh, the Boers agree to the loss of
independence and general sunendtr.
Tbeir other demands, continues the
Daily Mail, are tnat Great Britain
shall rebuild and restock the farms,
take over the legal claims and liabilities of the two republics and grant
representative government within a
shorter period than is now con-
toi'ijvab'd.
The following despatch, 'dated
Pretoria, April 15, has heen reoeived
at the War office fiom Lord Kitchener; Bruce Hamilton's columns
arrived at. the Standerton line last
night,having taken 145 Boerfl, including killed and wounded, during the
movements from the Middleberg
line.

Victoria. April 15.���Another injunction was grunted today to stop work
on tho V. V. and E. Ry.. the llritish
Columbia branch of the Great
Northern railway, in the Boundary
district. The application ior the injunction wns made on the (rounds,
(1) that work on the line was uot
commenced until after the expiration
uf the charter granted to the V, V.
and E. railway; (2) that the powerB
of the company have been delegated
to an American corporation, namely,
the Ureal Northern railway company;
(3) that the present work is not ior
the pnrpose of building the const to
Kootenay railway hut from Cascude to
Carson, as a part of the line designed
to run from Republic tu Marcus, a
continuation ol the Nelson and Fort
Sheppard railway nnd instead ol

smelter iu Canada, is intended to
carry tbem through Canadian territory
to the smclteis ol Northport and other
United States points and theieby
frustrating the express intentions of

The injunction will come np for
argument on May 0 and in the meantime work must stop, It is only a
few days a?o tbat tho company recommenced work after a long wait pending Bnotbur injunction which they put
a stop to by piichasing the land which

member abfont. A second motion ol
a similar tenor based on the contract
entered into between the government
nnd the Canadian North rn railway is

that it will be defeated by an even
larger majority, as two members of
the opposition, Messrs. Helmek��n and

A DERATE ON LEAD.
An interest! up debate took place in
the provincial house on April 8th on
Mr. (Ireen's resolution that ln view of
depressed condition of thc lead market,
and tne disabilities under which tne
producers of lead and silver within
the province labor in not having the
p-o'luct of tlieir mines economically
smelted and refined | therefore in the
opinion of this bOiv?e the public interest requires on tlie part of the government tbe serious consideration of
the establishment aud operation by
tho government of lead smelting and
refining works within the province.
Mr. Taylor, speaking to the motion,
Wrongly urged tho government to
adopt somo definite line of policy to
assist tho mining industry. He compared tho price of lead in the United
States and Canada, declaring tliat the
latter had no chance. The Amercan
Lead Smelting Trust dominated the
market to the destruction of the
British Columbia industry. The
province, he alleged, was handicapped in the matter of refining, all
the profits going to the United States.
Tne only remedy, lie declared, was for
the government to embark in the
business of smelting and refining.
The Dominion subsidy had not benefited tbe industiy as yet as there were
no refineries. He thought the
Dominion and the provincial governments should combine and formulate
some plans which would be beneficial.
Mr. Martin was lavorable to tho
motion and thought tho government
should give the matter its serious
consideration, and, if possible, devise
some means for relief, but lie did as a
rule, however, believe in government
inteference in matters of trade ano
commerce.
Hon.     Col,   Prior     replying,    acknowledged   the impprtance of tbe lead
industiy      Theie wero two lead smelters in the province,    at  Trail and   at
Nelson,    and   they   were   capable  of
handling the present output,    but, unfortunately,   after   being treated   the
bullion   had   to be sent abroad to   be
refilled.      It  was,     theiefore,     only
necessary to consider the question of a
refinery.    Thc only   market a  smelter
had for its product was  the   refinery,
while the product of the refinery could
be disposed of wherever   leac is used.
All of the present refineries   were   remote from this province,   in   Europe,
the Eastern   States   and   one   in   San
Francisco,     lliilisli   Colmbia   bad   to
pay   freight   to thc   refinery from the
smelters and from the refinery   to   the
consumer. The lead bullion was worth
just tne   market   price  of   lead, less
these   two freights   and   tho   refinery
charges   (about $10).     These  freights
amounted   to   from   818 to $18 per ton
by rail to New York and lrom 32 to $.1
per ton from New York to England.
Col. Prior gave some quotations as
to the Loudon prico of lead which
governs its prico in this province.
It amounted on March sth to $50 per
ton of 2UU0 pounds, the $50 had to pay
the several chsrges alluded to. On
such a low-priced commodity as lead
the freight charges were a verv important item. Taking the freight to
the English market at $'.'0 per ton and
the value at $50, there was only $:'0
left from wbich to pay for the refln
ing, smelting and mining. He mado
a comparison of the cost of shipping
lead and bullion by way of Vancouver
and Cape Horn and by rail to the east
em seaboard and across the Atlantic to
Great llritain. Ky the former the cost
would be $20.40 for bullion and $14.40
for pig lead, and by the latter tho
charges would be $17.50 for bullion
and $10.50 for load. These figures
included insurance, etc.
A refinery, he said, would he useless unless there was a market for
the output. Canada's consumption
of lead amounted to about 20,000 tons
��� year.   It wonld bo nocessarj to find
another^market, The only available
market would be Japan, where the
competition of Great llritian and
Australia would have to be met. In
18U0 lapan imported $500,000 worth of
lead aud probably a little more in
1891. In order to do anything in that
market B. C. would have to undersell
its competitors. The government, be
suid, was anxious to assist iu every
pnssible way the mine owner? saving those freights, but without the most
careful consideration could nut commit itself to tlie mattoi. The consideration, he promised, would be given.
It must not bu forgotten, be declared,
that if a lead refinery would pay here
there would be lots of companies win,
would construct one at once. One or
two of the big smelting and refining
companies had been in communication
witli thc department of mines regarding the outlook, nud the Provincial
Mineralogist had pointed out tlie
opening and requested them to investi-
I gate the matter. A refinery was an
expensive undertaking; it would cost
$100,000 to $150,000 to construct and a
working capital of $400,000 would
also be required. There was a refinery
in process of contraction at the Trail
smelter, but it was ot an experimental
nature being operated by a new electrolytic process, wbich, though costing more to instal, it was claimed,
oould be worked more cheaply,
Mr. Curtis supported the resolution
and suggested tliat the government
thoroughly investigate the whole
question of lead and copper smelting
and refining. One of the grievances
of the lead miners was the high
freight rates on the ores. It was the
duty of the government, he argued, to
regulate the railway rates. There was
an opening in the province for tlie
manufacturing of white lead to supply
all of the. Dominion, but a lead refinery mubt first be established.
Mr. Green thought the government
would employ au expert to make a
thorough investigation of the Subject.
The two smelters in the province
could not treat all of the ore if ail of
tlie mines were worlting. One of the
mines, the St. Eugo-je, could keep
one of them fully employed. If tbe
government would tako up the matter
of lead refining the profits would go
directly to tbo producer, instead of
the refiners as was the case at present.
Why could uot tbo provincial government by giving them tho bonus,which
was offered to aid a refinery, or assist
the province in some other way in
establishing a refinery? The resolution was then adopted.
A refinery is already under construction at Trail and it is positive
that it will begin operations on May
15. It is an experimental plant, ami
its capacity at the start will be small,
but the plant is put up iu such a
manner that additions can be easily
and quickly made, and its oapaeity
can be increased as fast as needed.
The Sullivan Group Mines is putting
in a sBelter in Marysville in East
Kootenay and just as soon as the
plant is in operation a lead refinery
is to be erected to be'followed by lead
corroding works.
These two plants will be ampiy
large enough to refine all tho lead
that oan be produced in llritish
Columbia and as they are to receive a
bounty of 85 per ton on the lead they
will rofino, there is not the slighest
doubt tbat they will yield profita to
those who are managing them.
In order that those refineries may
thrive and so that there may bo no
other lead sold in Canada except the
home produot the present duty on lead
should be raised irom 15 to 25 or even
35 per cent, ad valorem. The duty on
dry, white and red lean, which at
present is 5 per cent, should be increased in the same proportion. Willi
these changes in tho tariff the lead
producers would be certaiu of a home
market for about 13,000 tons of lead
and its products per annum, which is
about the quantity consumed in
Canada. The proudction is about
30,000 tons and the remainder could,
after supplying the wants of the home
market, be sold abroad in competition with tnat which is produced
in other countries. The price of pig
lead, white lead, lead pipe and other
manufactured products of lead need
not bo greater to the consumer than at
present; in fact, they could be sold
cheaper than at present and still leave
the miner, the smelter, the refinery
and the corroding worss large profits.
If the miner is treated right he would
under propor protection, and with
home factories receive as much or
nearly as much for the 13,000 tons of
lead made iuto manufactured products
and sold in Canada as he does now for
tlio   entire   30,000 tons.
Complaiut is made that the American lead trust is dominating Uritish
Columbia lead interests and injuring
it. This is not the case. Wnen the
lead trust bought ore in British
Columbia the lead mine owner received much more thau bo does now.
When the stocks of leao in the
United Stntcs became so large that it
affected tlie price the lead trust
censed to purchase in this country.
The load interests of the United States
are protected tiy an import duty of 2
1-2 cents per pound on pig
1 1-4 cents on lead in ore.

I     MINING NEWS.     |
t*********** **************
A force of 13 men is at work on the
Eva group near Camborne driving
tunnels the longest of which ia now
in 300 feet. Thu property is said to be
looking in extra    ood shape.
H. Z. Brook left last evening for the
Lardeau to visit this group on which
the Northwestern Development Hynoi-
ca'e, of whieh ho is thc managing
director, is installing a complete electric powor plant. Three carloads of
niaohluery have been takon to Coma-
plix hy steamer from Robson, and
from there it will bo taken up to the
proposed site neBr Camborne by packing tbo smaller .suctions and skidding
the larger ones. The power plant will
be llrst used to operate ton machine
drills with which levelopment and
exploratory work is to be vigorously
pushed, lt is expected that the plant
will he in working order by Juno I.
whon mining operations proper will
be commenced. At present the force
of mon engaged on the property is
erecting buildings. At tho power site
the snow is all gone although there is
a large quantity on tho claims where
tho tunuelliug will be commenced.
Plans are ulfo being prepared for a
ten-stamp mill to be erected on the
property when development has progressed further.
Considerable work is in progress
in the neighborhood of the Fish river
camp and it is expected that the season now opening will be a good one.
Mr. Bioek will stay in Camborne to
superintend operations, but will probably be back and forward to Nelson.
Tho power for the plant, will be
derived from Menhcnnick oreek,which
passes close to the proporty.

There iB hardly a week passes by
without a greater Improvement being
mnde in the already magnificent
showing of ore in the Silversmith in
quantity aB well as quality, says the
Sandon Mining Review. Tli is week
comes again the welcome news of a
further increase in the width oi the
ore body,making a total width of four
feet of solid ore. What further increases the value of the property is the
large amount of grey-copper associated with the ore.
Tlie property so far has shipped five
cars of the high grade and this has
only beon taken out during the course
of development work.
The very last developments in the
property show it to be a genuine bonanza, four and one half feet of steel
galena, running 500 ounces of silver
and 70 per cent, lead, intermingled
with large showings of grey copper,
and concentrating ore of a high value
on either side of this body, to a considerable thickness. Richer ore in
small bodies has been found here.hut
we doubt very much if for quality
and quantity combinod, this showing
haB never befoie been equalled in the
Slooan. At least we have heard of
none to equal it.

WARDE NOT COMING.
Manager Announces Three Members of Company 111.
J. E. Annable,manager of the Opera
house, yesterday morning leceived
the following telegram frcm David
Traitel, manager of the Frederick
Warde company: Impossible to nil
engagement at Nelson ; three prominent members of company ill.
Mr. Annable tried to reach Mr.
Traitel by telegraph and by te lephone
at various times yesteiday but up to a
late hour was unable to get any reply,
so that he considers the engagement
cancelled.
This has been a keen disappointment both to Mr. Amiable and no
doubt to the many who wonld have
been pleased to hear Mr. Warde iu
Nelson. The guarantee required was
what is considered large for a city of
tho size of Nelson, but the advance
sale of seats was such as to give
ground for the expectation that the
euterpiisc would hive been a very
successful one financially. Mr.
Annable has gone to considerable expense and trouble in advertising; this
attraction and in arranging for excursions and lor thc sale of seats in surrounding towns, and he very much
regrets that the disappointment to his
patrons.
All those who have purchased
tickets for the performance will have
tlieir money refunded on applying to

A WHOLE FORTUNE

This food tale from a trained nuroo
is worth reading:
;''I want to tell you ofthe curative
properties of the good food Grape
Nuts, and will say they are a whole
fortune to anyone sulforing as I did
for years with a stomach so rebellious
as to he almost useless to me.
For year and years I wa* tortured
with flatulency, heart burn, bloating,
tenderness of the stomach, and many
a time I cried bitterly because of my
great distress.
One never to be forgotten day Skter
oamo up from Columbus to visit mo.
She brought a package of Grape-Nuts
to see if thi food would agree with
me. I found the new food very delicious with cream, and it caused
me no pain or disturbance whatever.
To make a long story short I have
been using Grapo-Nats ever since.
Have gained :.'U pounds in five months
and ray health is perfect. It is a
pleasure to be plump nnd healthy and

The secietary of tbe baseball club
yesteiday received a letter from the
Rossland Baseball club asking them
regarding Victoria Day. Rossland
intends having a celebration on that
day and the Nelson team is invitod.
A meeting has been called of the
members of the clnb for tomonow
evening at 7.:)0 at the Tremont hotel
to discuss the matter and to organize,
for the season.
During the past few weeks the number of men being employed on tbe
extra gangs of the C.P.R. has been
con&Untly increased until now there
are upward of 300 men at work on this
division. The larger works are the
bridges at Slocan junction and the
ivootenay river, and the filling at the
Robson bridgo. Besides these the
roadbed is being improved in many
places so that tho summer work can
be said to be in full swing It is expeoted tbat this number of men will
be kept employed all summer. The
supplying of these camps with materials lor the work and with provisions means a considerable increase
to the business to be done from
Nelson.
Hedley Vicars Sinclair, engineer on
Ihe Valhalla, who was brought to
Nelson about three weeks ago suffering froin typhoid, died on Monday
afternoon from pneuomnia, which had
set in after typhoid. He was well
known in Nelson. About two years
age he was badly scalded on the tug
Ymir, and endured a loog and serious
illness at that time. His mother and
two brothers reside at Bonners' Ferry,
Idaho. The funeral will take place
this afternoon at 2 o'clock from tbe
Presbyterian church, Rev. Dr. Wright
conducting the funeral services. He
was very popular among his friends
and acquaintances and a number of
those employed on the lake will attend the funeral.
There has oeen a marked increase in
the amount of gjods arriving at and
being hauled out of Nelson by the
railways this year over that of last
yearB. It is estimated by tbo6e Who
have to do with the deliveiing of it
that the increase must be at least 40
per cent. Nu accurate data can be
obtained of the through fl eight for
points west of the Columbia river, but
from the number of cars that
nsuaily taken across the biidgs it is
calculated that the increase in the
amount of traffic to those points shows
probably a greater growth. On both
lines of railway loading into Nelson
tlio conditions are about the same and
particularly the business for those
points between Nelson and tho inter
national boundary bas showed even I
greater proportion of increase. Among
railway men there is activity, and
they arc all well satisfied with the
progress the business of their lines is
making.
Three tramps yesterday proved the
truth of the old saying that "the way
of the transgresBor is hard when he
hasn't any money." They were try
ing to beat their way from Kaslo ti
Nelson and at the former town board
ed the steamer International, having
omitted the slight formality of pro
curing a t.icket. They weie not dis
covered for some time, but when this
occurred were nut off at the next stop
ping place which happened to be
Balfour. A little while after the
Kokanee came along, and when she
stepped at Balfour the party went
aboard, but being soon found out
were again turned adrift a few miles
further on. Nothing daunted they
signalled the Moyie and were taken
on. Here, however, their luck failed,
as they were left off at tbe other side
of tbe lako at Kokanee creek, and as
there are no otner passenger steamers
running t'. the eity on which the trick
can be worked they are likely to have
an uncomfortable time before reaching
Nelson.
The first annual meeting of the
Similkameen Valley Coal company
was held yesterday afternoon in the

The cars to be used on the Nelson-
Boundary train aie being overhauled
and brightened up so that when they
come out of the shops to be put into
commission they will have the appear
ancc of new cars. The two parlor-
dining cars to go on that run have just
been turned out the Montreal shops
and will be on their way to tho west
in a few days. When the ne��' service
from Nelson through to Midway is
inaugurated, the car service will be
thoroughly up-to-date in every respect
and the equal in point of comfort
and convenience of anv train on the
main line. Though the summer time
table will come into effect about June
1, it is not oxpectd that there will be
much change in time of leaving and
arriving of the trains out of Nelson.
It will still be the eevning train thai
will connect with the steamers of tbe
Arrow lane, though the time may be
shortened a little. The engines "to be
used on the Boundary train will also
be of late design and equal in all
respects to those of the main line.
A PESTIFEROUS GERM.
- _______
Burrows up the Scalp  Into   Dandruff
and Saps the Hair's Vitality.
People who complain ot falling hair
as a rnie do not know that it is the
result of dandruff, which is caused by
a pestiferous parasite burrowing up
the scalp as it digs down to the
sheath in which the hair is fed in the
scalp. Before long the hair root is
shriveled up and the hair drops out.
If the work of the germ is not
destroyed hail keeps thinning till
baldness comes. The only way to
cure dandruff is to kill the germ, and
until now there lias been no hair
preparation that would do it; but
today dandruff is easily cradieted by
Newbro's Herpicide, whieh makes
hair glossy and soft as silk.
