FIERCE GALES
ON THE LAKES
Scores of Vessels Were Sunk.
Wrecked and Damaged.
Anxiety Felt for Vessels Which
Gould   Not  Find
Shelter.
(SPECIAL TU Tim MIM.lt.I
, Chicago 111., May 25.���Death and
ixll-a.ter, the extent of which is not
known, resulted from the gale which
raged on the great lakes yesterday.
The storm held sway from Chicago >o
Ogdensburg, N. Y., and scoros of vei-
~(��ls. were sunk, wrecked or suffered
serious damage. So far reports received from poits on the lake tell
only of disasters In their immediate
vicinity, and It his feared that other
wreaks and fatalities occurred at isolated places along the shores. Anxiety
Is felt for vessels in raid lake whicli
could find no Bhelter from the gale's
fury.
The worst disaster reported wns
the wrecking of the steamer Citv of
Baltimore, off Fish point, ten miles
from East Tawus, Miaih., in which
twelve lives were lost. Two members
of the brew lashed themselves to a
piece of wreckage and were picked up
after six hours in the water. One of
these, George McGinnis, of Chicago,
w~s made Insane by his exposre and
his companion narrowly escaped the
tame fate.
The fishing tug Constnnce was cut
in two and sunk in a collision with
the steamer C, W. Moore in the river,
near Memomlnoe, Mich. The. crew
escaped. The schooner Montmorency
la ashore off Charity Island, near
Bay City, Mich., and may prove a
total loss. The schooner George Davis Is high and dry on We noun Reach
near Ray City.
GRANTS SECURED.
"Swiftwater   Bill"    Loses    Valuable
Klondike Ground.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Vancouver, B. C, May 35.���A special dispatch from Dawson states that
Gold Commissioner Senkler has rendered a decision fnvorable to applicants for ground whioh lias been
claimed by the Quartz creek concession, which Is hold by "Swiftwater" Bill Gates and .1. C. Boyle,.
About a month ago, an organized
body of free miners, backed up by a
local capitalist, went to Quart, creek
aud staked claims on the strip of lard
between tho cast boundary of the
concession and Quartz creek, which
embraced a tract of land 1,000 feet
Wide. The concession people mentioned that the easterly boundary of
their ground eYtendod to the creek.
After staking the claims in dispute,
Application was mnde at tho record
office for grants to Ihe ground, which
waa refused, upon which protest wns
made and the cases placed in '.he
hands of the attorneys, who nt once
eutercd suit for tho ground. The
case when brought up in the gold
commissioner's court wns hotly ion-
tested. It was finally decided that
the boundaries of the concession did
not extend to Quartz creek and grants
wore Issued to applicants for the
claims. Bedrock in that locality li
very deep, bolng on an average cf 100
ti 140 feet. Some of the ground is
rich, but the pay streak is hard to
locate.
The claims thus fur secured have
been pooled, and will be sold or leased to a syndicate, as conditions are
not such as to encourage development
by the individual miners. This decision vyIH-ot have any bearing on
other concessions, with the exception
of the Boyle tract on the Klondike,
where the boundary line is also in
dispute, uiion n basis somewnat similar to the Quartz  creek   controversy.
Prop-
SWEPT   BY   WIND STORM.
Much Damage Done at Salt Lake and
Other Points.
Salt Lako, May 25.���A heavy wind
storm has been sweeping over Ne-
vadai Utah, Southern Idaho and Wyoming for the past, 30 hours. The ve-
'ocity at times reached 50 miles an
hour   ami   over,    Thc   slorlU   has re-
snlt-d in almost complete prostration
of telegraph and telephone service in
all directions. The storm was particularly severe through Nevada and
Utah and in places acroos the doseit
the floating sand almost buried the
railroad tracks for miles, while
the wind bleiv down telegraph poles
and tore the wires loose to such an
extent that il probably will be several
days before service is restored.
Around Great Salt Lake the sand,
lifted in clouds by the hurricane, at
times almost obscured the sun and
covered everything inches deep. In
Salt Lake City the most damage was
done to shade trees and outbuildings,
while several buildings in courBe of
construction were partially prostrated.
BETTER TIMES
ON THE COAST
TRAVELLER   AND ARTIST.
T. V. Twinning and Sydney II. Morse
in   Nelson.
Ono of the best travelled men that
has struck the city of Nelson for many
a day is to be found in the person of
T. V. Twinning, who is now in the
city completing airangeraents for the
appearance in tlie opera house tomorrow evening of Sidney II. Morse, the
celebrated Orient tenor, who is recognized as one of the leading ballad tenor singers at the present time before
the public. Mr. Morse is only 32
years of age and wbb born in India.
He wenj to England for his education,
and attended the celebrated Clifton
college, afterwards returning to India
for two years where in Calcutta he
was met by Mr. Twinning, who recognized in him a man of genius and
took him in hand and brought out his
musical qualities. They bave travelled together for the last six years and
are now completing their tonr of the
world. They arrived in Vancouver
and Victoria recently from their Oriental trip and after leaving Nelson
they will visit Rossland nnd Kaslo
and thence to Banff. From there
they return by the mainline to Ihe
coast and take in Sail Francisco and
all tbe prncipal coast cities, making
a complete tour of the American continent.
Tlie performance of Mondny evening
promises lo bo one of a high and interesting nature and a rich treat is in
store for those who attend, They
will be assisted in the programme by
Mrs. R. W. Hannington and H. Harris of this city. Mr. Harris is a well
known violinist of the city and in
is'.is while in Japan he had frequent
opportunities of hearing the gentlemen at whose entertainment he will
assist on Monday evening.
For a great many yeais Mr. Twinning has been a globe trotter, having
ti-nvolled for several years with the
noted Mrs. llrown Potter and Mr.Kyrle
Rellew. He has been in every country
under the sun, and Is full of the most
interesting reminiscence.
Iu an interview yesterday with a
Miner reporter, be related many very
interesting narrative's, relative to hie
travels, especially those in China,
India and Japan. Just prior to the
Boxer rising Mr. Twinning arranged
concert3 in 'lien Tsin and Pekin in
Gordon ball before the legation, and
received a cheque for 830 from Sir
Robert Hart for a sent at the enter-
tainn.ent. On tbeir journey there thoy
rode three days on donkeys and visited the grent wall In China, and have
travelled further into the interior of
the Oriental counhles than any other
European.
At Tokio in Japan, Mr. Morse sang
before the Japanese academy of music
in English, French, German and
Latin, and received from them a lib-
oral offer to stay and teach music and
voioe culture in tho academy, Mr.
Morse has appeared before the King,
Duke of Cornwall, Duke and Duchess
of Connaught, all the rajahs and
maharajahs of India, and in Don bay
before Lord and Lady Sandhurst, the
former of whom is now travelling with
the Duko and Duchess of Cornwall.
SEVENTY MEN BURIED.
Explosion In Colliery^ Entombs Many
Miners.
London, May 25.���An explosion occurred yesterday morning at the University colliery a Senghenydd, In the
Rhoudda valley. About 100 men were
in the pit at the time of the disaster
and there Is little hope of caving the
lives of any of thorn.
The rescueres of tho Universal colliery are working with the greatest
difficulty, owing to lack of air. Five
bodies' have boen recovered. The
'wreckage of the pit Is complete, almost precluding hope that the imprisoned men call have survived. There
are 75 miners missing.
Business Is Improving  and
Trade In All Lines Is
Good.
Shipping Is Brisk���All North-
Bound Steamers Are
Crowded.
(SPECIAL, TO THE MINER.)
Vancouver, B.,_,-, May 25.���On the
whole tbe outlook is hopeful this
week. There is a continued confident
tone in the hardware and grocery
trades, and an assurance on all sides
that tho ocal trade has somewhat improved and collections are better.
The statement is made by several
firms that the ou.side British Columbia coast trade Is better than it eve-
was with them. This would Indicate
that there arc as many if not more
men out prospa.cling the land and
forests. This yenr the fact lhat the
canhois have advamed no money to
fishermen has made a difference in
all trade and it is satisfactory when
it is taken into consideration that business is reported better than last year
in spite of this fact.
Shipping has been very active, particularly In the Klondike trade, and
every Skagway bound steamer is
loaded to her greatest capacity outward bound.
The grocers' combine is not yet
consummated but it is stated by the
promoters that as soon as one or two!
firms hanging out can be induced to
fall in lino   it will bo.ome a fact.
It is reported that it is not well to
expect too much from Atlin this year,
but that tho Klondike will beat all
records.
It is thought that it will be a prosperous year with the canners nnd
that the shingle manufacturers are
doing a very profitable business and
will continue to be prosperous
throughcut|>the_9um_ier from present
indications. '
The outlook for coast mining is fair.
The Briitanma deal is off,but nego
tiations are on foot for another possible deal in London.
Mr. Graves, of the Granby smelter,
will very likely build here, as he has
been almost guaranteed 250 tons a
day through Mr. Thomas Dunn, from
three mines alone, and is promised
400 tons daily from these mines within a year's time, or six months after
the completion,of the smelter.
Generally speaking, Hritish Columbia may not anticipate bard times,
tbis summer nt least.
FRASER  RIVER FLOOD.
(SPECIAI. TO THE MINER.)
Yale, B. C, May 25.���The Fraser
river was 25 feet nine inches above
low water mark at 11 o'clock this
morning. The water rose one foot
since yeatcrdny and is still rising.
At Lytton tho river is raising fast
and the weather   is very hot.

says the Pretoria correspondent of the.
Daily Mail, to discuss the war situation.
GRAND FORKS WON.
Boundary Boys Too Many For Nelson
Lncrosr.e Team.
Tho Nelson lacrosse team returned
from Grand Forks last night, where
they played tho Grand Forks team on
Victoria Day. Although they lost
the game by a score of 5 to 0, the
Nelson boys speak in glowing terms
of the treatment accorded thein In the
Boundary oily. The game was played without n single dispute or hitch
of any kind, and in the evening the
victors entertained their visitors at
dance at the opera house. The Nelson
boys feel under special obligation to
Dr. McDona'd and Mr. Holland for
courtesies shown them. A return
game will be played here In thc near
future. The Nelson men who took
pnrt in the game were: W. lilpper-
son, N. Mnllette, II. Burnett, T. Wilson, R. McFarland, J. Vanstone. F.

RICH ORE ON
POOL CREEK
Alaska  Boundary   Question
Will Be Given Principal
Consideration.
Ottawa, May 25.���The leader of the
opposition in tlio house having asked
for information respecting the announcement tbat the joint high commission was shortly to resume its sittings, Sir Wilfrid Laurier said ho had
reason to believe the sittings would
bo resumed. It wns desirable to bring
matters to an issue of some kind. He
said the A'askan boundary had noi,
been eliminated, but wf.s in the very
forefiont of negotiations. In justice
to Cainada and in justice to Newfoundland, it was neessary that the commission should resvme. If the sittings failed. Canada would have to
consider the question of revision in its
relations with Newfoundland. He
also said it was important for all concerned that the Alaskan boundary
should bo definitely letlled.
If the commission failed to reach a
settlement and tbe American and the
Canadian contentions were so far
apart that the premier did not see any
assurance that a settlement would be
reached and if a fair compromise
could not be arrived at, then there
must be arbitration. Tlie objection
to the Bond-Blair treaty, which is
causing considerable discussion by
Canada, is that It gives to the Unite I
States Ashing vessels the privilege of
entering the waters of Newfoundland
and purenasing bail.it nil times and
on tho same terms as Newfoundland
vessels.
In return, the   United   States gives
free admission to   Newfoundland nsh.
That will prove   disastrous, it is said
to the Canadian fishing.

was concerned. Ihe contract was
completed on Tuesday last and is now
ready for the laying of the steel
rails. Mr. Gunn has shipped his

at his r-imp on the evening of the
23rd ho replied thut tbe culprit lad
not yet been arrested us tbe. bad no
knowledge of his ideality. Il was
evident, however, that the thief was
familiar with thc surroundings and
was aware of the money he appropriated being in thu place he found it.
The gentleman who had the misfortune to lose tho money was the bookkeeper, John Sydney Smith of Toi onto, and tho amount of his loss was
8135 In case besides a quantity of jewelry and other things.
STRATHCONAS RETURN-
T. C. I'arks and Mr. Cniiglilan, two
mombers of the Strathcona Horse n-
turncd to the city yesterday on the
steamer Nelson, looking none tho
worse for their encounter with the
Boers. On his retuin journey tho former stayed off about six weeks In the
old conntry visiting aiming fi lends.
While nt the front he wns laid up for
several weeks with enteric fever, nnd
had also the misfortune to be injured
by the fall of a horse, which has left
bim somewhat lame.
It Is quite evident that the Pish
creek camp's reputation as a free
milling gold producer is to be sustained, says the Lardeau Eagle. On Monday afternoon W. A. Strutt brought
samples here to S. Shannon, II. A.,
j for assav. and to say that the results
were surprising would be putting it
mild. The samples submitted weie
quartz and iron oxide containing
free gold, specks of which were visible to the naked eye. The returns
were 81,424 in gold and 825.tw; in silver, or a total value of 81,440.68 to
the ton, being probably the highest
gold values ever obtained in the district outside of the well known Lade
group. The property from which
these remarkable vnlm-sj were taken
is tbe Sir Wilfrid group, (situated on
Pool creek���li. miles from the rising
capital of the Fish creek camp���Camborne. The owners are W. A. Strutt
and Chas. R. McKay, both old-time
prospectors in this district, Mr. Strutt
has spent most of the winter io Ferguson., The group consists of t��o
claims, the Sir Wilfrid and Rover,
located one on each side of Pool
creek, so that the unlimited available
water power will be a strong faotor
in their future value. .
Mr. Strutt informs the Eagle thnt
they have two strong ledges running
parallel through their property.
The ore from which they obtained tho
samples is a true fissure vein, at least
11 ft. in width, while the other some
200 ft. distant though not thoroughly
prospected, is some 14 ft. wide, also
carrying unknown values in free-
milling gold. The work; to date Is
of u prospecting nature, tbe owners
having stripped the lead for some din-
tun e and put in a few o| ,-n cuts here
and there along   it.
They propose driving a inn ft. tunnel in on the ledge on the Sir Wilfrid,
located on the soutli side of Pool
creek, which will give them a depth
of nearly 300 feet, ranking, the property   an easy proposition to work.
The owners have already had an
offer from a syndicate who stand prc-
pUt-il to put In a stamp mill, but they
aro determined to do a little more
work before soiling, us they consider
it will materially Increase the valne
of their remarkably rich holding.
Mr. Strutt reports considerable activity in the Fish crcen camp in general. People nre coming in daily,and
already i    lumber of   sales are on tap.
Thc encouraging progress bring
made on old properties, and the Increasing number of free-milling gold
porpertles now being opened up ia
having its effect, all nf which will
materially aid In bringing that portion of   this   district   into   Increased
prominence this season.

Hudson's Bay Company.
Mr. Fielding delivered an Interesting speech in introducing the question
of a mint for Canada, lie believed
the feeling in ftivoi of it was very
strong and nlso general, hut. it was
doubtless largely sentimental. There
was a sound commercial reason for it,
however, as there was probably as
much foundation for the axiom that
"trade follows the gold" as for the
other that "trade follows the Hag."
An example in demonstration of the
lormer waa tbe wonderful commercial
growth of Seattle, a growth largely
If not mainly due to its trade with
the Yukon com t-y. A mint in Canada, in conjunction with an assay
office, will certainly draw the gold of
the Klondike in our own oireetion,
and we may look for substantial ben-
etits in consequence.
Canada is not a large consumer nf
gold, and for our domestic needs a
mint will be more than sufficient. It
Is proposed to manufacture British
coin as well as Canadian, the permission to do this having been conceded by the Imperial authorities. This
is to put ourselves on a footing of
equality with the Australian mints.
In the new Commonwealth the currency is sterling, the same as in the
United Kingdom, and there they coin
sovereigns that pass everywhere in
the Empire as readily as they do at
home. Our decimal currency puts us
at a disadvantage in this respect, and
therefore permission was sought to
turn some of our Canadian gold into
BritiBh coins. It has not yet been
formally decided, but in all probability the Canadian denominations will
be 83-50, 8!i and 810.
No profit is looked for from the
coinage of gold, but it is believed that.
In our silver and copper coins profit
enough will be made to pay the expenses of the mint and make it self-
sustaining. That is a matter of no
little consequence, it is true, but some
interpellations at this point suggest
a question tbat may prove extremely
important. 'The profit on silver coinage,at the present price of that metal,
would be very huge���at least as much
as sixty per cent. Will there be found
In this temptation enough to tlood the
country with silver "dollars," iu lieu
of the paper issue of the Government'.'
Mr. Fielding may have had tbis in
mind when he said there was no In
tention to huve a silver question in
Canada. It is not unlikely there will
be a greatly increased coinage, the
belief that there is room for its consumption being based on the fact that
there are always several millions of
United States currency In Osculation;
but at present, at any 1 lite, there is
no thought cf forcing silver beyond the
legitimate needs of liaile. Here ln
the Kootenays It may be thought there
would be no objection to making all-
I ver a legal tender lo any amount, and
to coin it lu large quantities, as this
would havai a tendency to Increase the
price of the raw metal; but our   husi-
1 ness men as a class are shrewd and
conservative, and they would ho ex
.tremely reluctant to invite a disturb-
ance of our present satisfactory currency, aa well us a political agitation
that would he full of evil, for the
doubtful benefit that night accrue In
raising the piico. All the silver coinage that could possibly be unloaded
in Canada would make but 1111 insignificant proportion of the world's production, and could therefore affect tbe
price of that metal only very slightly
If at all. For this reason there is no
cause to anticipate an agitation for
the unlimited coinage of silver, the
same as has created such political unrest in the neighboring Republic; but
it ie not so sure that the large profit
in coining it may not tempt tlie (Iovernment to Issue mora than sufficient
for legitimate needs, when the facilities for doing It urn so convenient.
get, voted the supplies, passed a number of Bills of more or less public interest, grabbed five hundred dollars
additional indemnity, and then went
home. With the exception of the latter detail, this is what they have been
doing for many years past. Nelson
has no special interest in the session,
beyond the fact that it sent a new
member to attend it,whose career as a
young and untried legislator it naturally followed with some concern. It
is gratifying to know that he acquitted himself with as much credit as
could reasonably be expected. He conducted himself with becoming modesty, and shoved to the front only
when matters of local or provincial
interest were under consideration.
Members who are successful in gaining and holding the respect of the
House usually begin this way; the
cheeky gentleman is sooner or later
sat upon,	
about to increase their capital stock
from one to two millions. Expansion
is the order   of   the day.
In the end the tJovernraent at Ottawa declined to do anything in aid of
the Bernier expedition in search of
the North Bole. We do not understand that, this was owing to any lack
of sypmuihy for the brave Canadian
who desires to make the attempt, but
rather because h's preparations are
not yet sufficiently advanced to demand an immediate appropriation.
If Captain Bernier is thought to be a
capable man, and can organise the
expedition, the Canadian people
would regret any reluctance on the
part of Parliament to give him a
reasonable measure of assistance. It
looks as If the world had quite made
up its mind to keep at it until the
Pole is reached, and in that case It
is eminently appropriate, seeing that
the Pole is our own property, that a
Canadian expedition should engage in
the venture. If there are men and
ships capable of accomplishing it,
Canada, of all countries in tne wm Id,
should be able to produce them. Let
us hope that by next session Captain
Hernier will be in a position to ask
for aid with a confidence grounded on
readiness.

Some of the less blute of the religionists of Toronto profess to fear that
the unholy multitude intend to turn
Sunday into a day of not and excess.
The growing popularity of llanlan's
Point us a Sunday resort is, on their
own showing, the only outward and
visible evidence of this wicked design. It is this intolerance on the
part of some of the churches thut
drives so many to extremes in their
Sunday recreations. No rational people will long submit to theljranny
of narrow minded men who think
that all should believe as they do iu
matters of Sunday observance, wbeber
of the opeu or shut. sort. A mun Is
entitled to spend bis Sunday as he
pleases, so long as he docs not violate
any recognized ordinance of civilised
society, encroach on the liberties of
others, or make a public nuisance of
himself. And in judging of these,
the laws and rules of common sense
rather than those laid down by the
religionists are to be observed. We
do these things better In Nelson,
where It tins been our good fortune to
strike what Is alumni an entirely satisfactory medium.

VICTORIA DAY AT YMIR.
(SPICCIA-. TO THE .HNKH.I
-    Ymir, B. C, May :>a.���The Victoria
Day celebration   held   hero   yesterday
'was a complete success in every way.
About three or four hundred outof-
town visitors attended the spoits,
' which were ail well contested The
horse race furnished quite a bit of
excitement, and considerable moniy
changed hands. The race was run in
heats���one-quarter mile���and C. M.
Peter's May Iiillie won first and third
heat.-, and the ruee.
Perhaps the mont interest was taken
in the drilling contest. Three tenuis
contested, one from the Ymir mine
and two town tennis. The first prize
was won by Oddle and White, the
Ymir mine team, who drilled ,'IHJy
Inches second by Petersen and Daly
with 33 inohes, third team Campbell
and lielhunc drilling 31 % Inches.
The tug of war contest between tbo
mine and town resulted in up even
break, neither team getting tbo advantage.
FAREWELL SERMONS���
The Methodist, ministers of the Canadian church who me being changed
this year will preach their farewell sermons today, and will assume charge
of their new congregations for next
Sunday. One of the advantage elaim-
ed.for the Methodist iteneraey system
la.that no charge is left vacant after a
minister leaves the field and no ir> n-
iste.i who is at all competent is leit
without a charge. The ministeis at
tbe following places in the Kootenay
djstriet will farewell their enngre-
gittions todny: Rossland, Trail.

A LUCKY FIND.
What proved to be a more profitable find than gold happened the other day to a traveller from San Fran-
Cisco, while at lunch in one of the
leading restaurants in Nelson. He
ordered a portion of Pumpkin pie,
when to his astonishment his appe-
titie, which he bad lost fifteen years
dgo in Arizona, suddenly returned to
bim, with renewed vigor. The pit-
had a very solid texture and a rich
mellow llavor. The cook . informs us
that it was made from 'The Morse
Pumpkin Flour." None other just as
good.    Insist on "The Morse brand."

KNEW THE WAY OUT
Made a Slmlj of His Food.
It is not always that the user of food
understands about that food, but a
gentleman in Cincinnati wriline
about Grape-Nuts expresses himself
perfectly. He says: "A business man
devoting himself to hard mental labor, requires different food than i.
Ulan doing muscular work. I becanu
a>��are of a dull, heavy feeling in mj
head day by day which did an untoli
damage to my work. Verdict, intes
tinal Indigestion ; punishment, a severe diet list, leaving out starchi
foods, sugar and fat.
Up to this time, with the most, precise care in cooking, the ordinan
breakfast food came to the table n
pasty, starchy mass. Added to thai
was sugar and more or less whiti
bread,which gave an excess of starchi
food that could nut be digested. Thii
indigested mass passed Into the intes
tines, creating gas and all of the distressing symptoms both of body and
brain. I was put on Grapc-Nutt
Food for the reason that it is made ol
selected partN of wheat and barley,
thoroughly cooked at the factory,
giving to the body the starchy part ol
the food whicli is necessary, predi-
gested, tbat is turned into dextrosi
or grape sugar. This furnished tin
sweet needed, without the use o
cane sugar aid gave me the starchi
principle of fund already passed inti
the second condition, exactly In tin
same manner as a healthy body di
gi-sts it.
After eating Grape-Nuts for a shor
time, I found a most remarkable im
provem.-nt in my health, and I al.si
discoviired the reason why the clain
made on the package is true, that om
ponnd of Grape-Nuts, which is per
fectlj absorbed by the body, wil
afford more nutrition than ten pound
of meat, wheat or broad, imperfect!
digested. I can assure anyone that i
week or ten days' conscientious use o
Grape-Nuts will prove far more con
viiieing testimony tlinn nny writtci
words. I subscribe myself a groatfu
consumer. Please do not publish nr
name." Anyone who will write ti
the Postum Cereal Co.. Ltd., Bnttli
Creek, Mich., and enclose stamp, cat
be aupplied with the name and ad
dress.

In speaking of the superiority of Golds-
worth Tea in last week's ad, we have had many
enquiries for the Tea since then, and we can
honestly say for Goldsworth, that those who
have tried it say it is without exception the
finest Tea they have used in Nelson for the
money. We are sending it out to the most
fastidious tea drinkers and they come back
and ask for Goldsworth.
Our Coffee is meeting with great favor,
but we are not surprised at this for we have
gone to a lot of trouble and expense in selec-
ing our brand of Coffee as well as Tea, but
we feel that from the quantities we aie selling
of these goods that they are going to be winners and make friends of those who love a
good cup of Tea or Coffee.
