Ninth  Year
Criticise the Council's Hospital Resolution.
ARE  MUCH   INCENSED
If a Grant �� to Be  Given,' They Say it
Should Be For a General
Hospital.
There wm a great deal of comment
yesterday upon the aotion of the Oity
Council, in pa-win*** the resolution ask-
ing the Provincial Government to make
a grant of $6000 and blook 49 in the city
of Nelaon for the establishment of a
Revereud Sisters hospital.
The directors of the Kootenay Lake
General Hospital felt that the action
of the Council was a direct slap nt them,
and it is likely that within a few dayt
a special meeting of the directors will
be held and some action taken in the
premises. Friends of the present hospital say that if Bny money is to be
granted towaid better hospital facilities in Nelson, that money should go to
the Kootenay Lake institution iustead
of the Sisters- or any other organization. They call attention also to the
fact that they have already applied to
the Provincial authorities foi a mone>
grant and for block 49, agreeing, if
their wishes were complied with, to
give up their present building to school
purposes.. They feel also that the
Conncil should not have acted so hn��f-
ily on the resolution in question.
Said one of the dirtotors to The Miuel'
yesterday;
"If the Council is so anxious to secure a hospital in keeping with the requirements of the city, why do they
not bend their effnits toward tlie betterment of the Koo.enay Lake institution? We have hern compelled to struggle wlong a**) b> st we could with no aid
from the City Council or ihe -Provin
cial Uoverumtnt, and in the face of
this struggle we have-improved thi-
hospital and for some time past have
been doing splendidly. Our death rate
is very low and patients at the hospital
have the very beat of prot'esaioua I cure
and attendance. We feel that we hav.
been treated very badly by the City
Council, ana believe that when the)
thoroughly understand the situation
they will reconsider their action ol
Monday night."
On the other hand, exponents of tlie
proposition to secuie the establishment of a Sisters .hospital, argue that
the the city wili get fur better result*
from such a hospital than tbey could
ever hope tosecure tfroni the present
one. They point to the faot tbat the
Sisteis hospital at Rossland was given
$3,000 while the hospital here wns left
out entirely, I hits indicating,, they say,
that a Sisters hospital is mors liable to
aid from the Government thau a general hospital. ,
The following was handed The Miner
last evening bye prominent citizen:
The citizens of Nelson are becoming
aocustomed to surprises, and it requires
something quite out of the ordinary to
cause a ripple, but, that something did
happen at the lasi meeting of Ihe
Oity Council. To say that a large mm
jority of the oitizenn were nstouished
at the action of the Counoil In voting
away a valuable block ot land and a
Urge ��� Government appropriation of
the sum of $0,000 to tbe Catholic denomination; that has. been set apart
for a general hospital in Nelsou.is put*
ting it mild. Wo have nothing to say
against the Catholics ns a denomination, but wo do hold with good and
well accepted reasons,thpt no eooltsias-
tionl denomination should be made a
present of or given control of any such
inportant public, inat.itulioii as a general hospital; That the general Iiob-
pital in Nelson has hud a in.i-d mid U|.
hill fight fur existauce is a well known
fnet, hut an investigator will not have
far tc go to Hud the cnus"s or little
combination of causes,* and right here
it the city of Nelson. That a pub ie institution of this kind obtains betierre-
sults when not under denominational
control, it will not be necessarv to go
further than to compare ihe report of
our struggling little hospital here on
Kootenay Lake, with the pretenlious
institution under* the control of ihe.
HiHiriK.of Spokane and Victoria, and it
will be found thnt with all ihe obstacles
to contend with, our hoatital hue a
IftbltttsUs- pera.ntafc* l* Ai oredit Id
the number of patients treated in proportion to the number of attendants in
charge and in cost of treatment per
patient, in the the length of time patients remained in the hospital, and
last and by far the most important of
all is the small death rate as compared
with other institutions. What particular object Alderman Hillyer has in
view remains to be seen, that he
brought the matter up on very short
notice and that the Council���that
Council for which so many of us
worked so hard to elect���passed upon
the resolution withoutduedeliberation,
is without doubt.
It now remains for the citizens of
Nelson to wake up again and look after
their interests, A large Government
grant has been promised; we already
have an excellent site, and everything
promises well for Nelaon to possess one
of the finest public institutions of the
kind in the Province.

rHEIR SIDE OF IT
WHAT AMERICANS SAY OP JOINT
HIGH COMMISSION.
Claim That They Made. Concession after
Concession   All of   Which
Were Refused.
Washington, Feb. 21.���Without any
purpose to start anv flood of recriminations, the American, members of the
Joint High Commission feel that they
have not been to blame for the failure
to reach an agreement, but that they
are justified in the statement that
they have made concession after concession. It is supposed that reasons
of internal policy, founded on the belief that they would be in a better position before the session of the Parlin
ment just beginning, if they worn
able to assert tuat they lied refused to
sacrifice Canadian interests, have animated the Canadian m-_bera of the
Commission- in their course. It is
just possible that better results may
attend a further conference of the
joint body next summer, but while
the officials here regret exceedingly
the failure so far to re.-.-.-l:' mi agreement, it is> said positively (ho* the
American side has made its
last concession and the Canadians cannot expect'any better terms
hereafter than thoy have now  refused.
INFLUENZA IN LONDON.
London, Feb. 21.���An epidemic
of influenza has prevailed in the
greater part of Europe for some
time past and in this city a mild
sort of influenza is very prevalent.
The celebration of Washington's
birthday by the American colony
here has been abandoned in consequence of the epidemic. Mr. Joseph
Chamberlain is confined to his home
wilh influenza and is unable to attend the Colonial office of the House
of Commons. He has also been
weakened by his recent attack ot
gout. His physician insist that he
shall remain in bed and receive the
greatest care.
A NOVEL METHOD.
Madison, Wis.. Feb. 21.���Prot.
Wood, Instructor in Physics in the
University of Wisconsin, has originated the idea of thawing out frozen water pipes with electricity, and
made two   successful   experiments.
He takes the electric current used
for street lights, attaches one wire
to the frozen pipe inside the cellar
ot one house and the other wire to
a -imilar pipe in the adjoining, or
any other house, thus completing
the circuit. A current of about 50
volts is then turned on, heating the
pipes and thus melting the ice within. Prof. Wood uses a transformer to reduce the voltage, so that
tha ourrent will list melt thi   *��tpM.
Madrid, Feb. 21���In the Chamber of Deputies today the Opposition continued to bait the Government. Senor Canalejas put a long
string of questions to the Minister
of Finance, Senor Puigicervere, who
declined to reveal the contents of
the projected bills. The latter, however, said he hoped in due time to
introduce measures to settle the ar-
rsars of pay of the soldiers returned
from Cuba and to deal with the payment of the Cuban and Philippine
debts. To this Senor Canalejas replied: "Nothing could be conceived
more lamentable than the words of
the Minister of Finance. It is evident that he has prepared no bills
at all, despite the gravity of the situation."
Senor Canalejas then proceeded
to censure the Government, caustically attributing its "careless glib-
ness of explanation" to the fact that
it was aware that in a few days it
would no longer be in office. He
said he thought Senor Puigicervere
would have done better to acknowledge that this was why no bills had
been prepared.
In the Senate today Count D.
Almena-, renewed the attacks begun
by him yesterday on the generals
who were engaged in the war in
Cuba. He complained that chests
of gold sent out to pay the troopers
in Cuba had been returned to Spain
intact and unopened just as they
had been sent out. In terms of
special severity he criticized Capt.
Aunon, the Minister of Marine.
Twice he was called upon by the
President to withdraw his remarks
and his speech was attended
throughout with great uproar.
Marshall Campos defended General Linares, who was in command
of the Spanish troops at Santiago at
the capitulation against the charge
of treason brought by Count D.
Alemenas, adding that the- latter
would not dare repeat his charges
outside the courts. Count D.
Almenas essayed to reply, but the
President refused to listen to him.
Senor Sagasta, the Premier, who
who spoke amid increasing tumult,
Jeplored-tlie attitude of Count D.
Mmenas and defended the Government's conduct. He concluded by
calling for the closure. The debate
was adjourned.

REGARDING SAMOA.
Cologne   Gazette
Its
Expresses
Opinion.
Berlin, Feb. 21���The Cologne
Gazette today, in an inspired article,
sharply criticises the recently published letter addressed by Chief Justice Chambers, of Samoa, to his
brother, The paper says: "The
facts of the situation are that Mataafa received five sixths, and Maii-
toa Tanus one sixth, of '.he votes
cast. The election was conducted
in strict accordance with Samoan
customs, Malitoa Tanus was in-
eligible according to Samoan customs, as he is only 18 years old.
Mr. Chambers, prior to the election,
recognized Mataafa's eligibility. All
these facts Mr. Chambers ignored
when he declared Malitoa Tanus
elected. His declaration that Mataafa was ineligible comes with particularly bad grace, because it was cials were unable to decipher to-
the American delegates at the con- night. There is no "Fourth" para-
ference
German/'
Hong Kong, Feb. 31.���The following statement has been issued
by the Filipino Junta: "Information which has leaked through the
Pinkertons sent by President McKinley to investigate the shipments
to Aguinaldo were made by the order of the American Government
through United States Consul Wild-
man, hence the shipment per Wing-
foo. The American Government
subsequently telegraped' to cease
this, coinciding with the change of
policy to annexation. Mr. Wildman
and Rear-Admiral Dewey promised
to pay, but have not yet paid, for a
subsequent expedition by the Abbey,
authorized by Rear Admiral Dewey,
who afterwards seized the steamer
and she is still held. Papers respecting this are now in the possession of the Secretary of the Navy.
The protestations of Rear Admiral
Dewey and other Americans that
they made no promises are ridiculous. In view of these facts let the
American people judge how the na��-
lion's word of honor waspledged to
the Filipinos and confided in by
them and violated by the recent
treachery of General Otis."
PLAN OF ATTACK.
Washington, Feb. 21.���The following despatch was received this
afternoon from General Otis dated
Manila, Feb.'21, 1899, to the Adjutant General) Washington, D< C.
Following issued by an important
officer of the Insurgent government
at Malolos, Feb. 15', 1899 for exe^
cution during that evening and
night in this city.
1. You will so dispose that at 8
o'clock at night the individuals of
the Territortial Militia at your order
will be found united in all the
streets of San Pedro, armed with
their balos and revolvers or guns
and ammunition if convenient.
2. Philippine families only will be
respected. They should not be molested; but all other individuals, of
whatever race they may be, will be
exterminated without compassion
after the extermination of the army
of occupation.
3. The defenders of thePhhiipines
in your command will attack the
guard at Biliford and liberate the
prisoners and "Presidiaries," and
having accomplished this, they will
be armed, saying to them, -'Brothers we must avenge ourselves on
the Americans and exterminate them
that we take our revenge for the \n-
famy andAsftSychery they have 'committed upon us; have no compassion
upon them; attack with vigor. All
Filpinos, enmasse will second you."
"Long live Filipino Independence,"
5th���The order which will be
followed in the attack will be as
follows: The sharpshooters of Ton-
do and Santa Ana will begin the
attack from without, and these
shots will be the signal for the
militia of Trozo, Binondo, Quiato,
and Sampaloc to go out into the
street and do their duty. Those of
Pako, Emmita and Malate, Santa
Cruz and San Miguel will not start
out until 12 o'clock unless they see
that their companies need assistance.
6th���The militia of Tondo will
start out at 3 o'clock in the morning, .and if all do their duty our revenge will be complete. Brothers,
Europe contemplates us ���we know
how to die as men shedding our
blood in defence ol the liberty of
our country; death to the tyrants.
"War without quarter to the false
Americans who have deceived us.
Either independence or death."
The portion of General Otis' dispatch indicated by dashes, the  offi-
He Reproves Relaxation of Discipline
and Non-Observanoe of Doctrine.
Rome, Feb. 21���Tho Observatore Romano publishes tonight a letter from the
Pope to Cardinal Gibbons saying that
"If the term Americanism signifies qualities peculiar to Americans and usages
adapted to to their citizens, then we have
nothing to say against it, but if it denotes the opinions expressed iu the Life
of Father Heoker,' we are oonvinced that
the Ameriosn Bishops will be the first to
rejeot them."
Tbe I'one's letter specially leprove
opinions concerning the relaxation of
discipline and non-observance of doctrinal points as a pretext for attrsotfng
dissenters to Catholicism, the direotion
of sottle by inspiration of the Holy Ghost
independent of priestly control, the diversion of virtue into active or passive
oritioisms of the old religious orders aud
concerning unusual methods of pleaching Catholicism to dissenters.
The letter, which occupies five oolumns
in the Observatore Romano, begins bv
lauding Cardinal Gibbons and the Ameri-
oau Catholios. Alluding to tbe many
proofs ot good will he has given them in
the past; the Pope wishes them to see in
tbe present document another proof of
his affection for Amerioa. While he
makes it clear that the letter is one of
warning and correction with reference to
the "Life of Father Heoker" his Holiness
carefully distinguishes between the
dootrinal of the new tLeories and
the questions of practical disoipline.
He strongly urges the impossibility of
any change in the former. While admitting that the Church has always
recognized aud acted upon the necessity of adapting certain points of discipline to modern requirements, it
rests with the Church, the Pope points
out, and not with individuals, to determine how aud when such adaptations oan be made.
"All virtues," says- His Holiness,
"must necessarily be active, the contempt shown by innovators, for what
they are pleased to call passive virtues
has naturally led to a contempt of religious life as suited only to the weak
und as an impediment to Christian
perfection aud to the good of the
community."
BISHOPS TO orAtf.
COURT OF INQUIRY
Ho Decides (he House ot Commons by a
Vote of 200 to 129,
London, Feb. 21.���By a vote ot 200
against 129 the House rejected a motion
tn remove the Bishops from the House
or Lords on the ground lhat their presence there is incompatible with their religious duties. The debate wns notable
(or a remarkable proposal by Lord Salisbury's son, Lord Hugh Cecil, Conservative member of Parliament from Greenwich, who in a quaintly amusing speech
moved an amendment suggesting that,
iustead ot removing the Bishops it would
be preferable to create Non-Conformist
preachers life peers and so make the
House nf Lords more representative of
the educated classes. Mr. Arthur J.
Balfour, the Government leader, described Lord Cecil's proposition as "em
barrassing and unconventional," and
urged him to withdraw his amendment.
The House was highly amused at the incident and the amendment was negatived
without division.
FROZEN TO DEATH.
Pat Keogh, a Miner, Dies on the
Trail.
Salmo, B. C., Feb. 21���Pat Keogh, a
well known miuer and prospector, was
found frozen on the trail between Salmo

The Beef Soandal  in Oonnection  With
The  Cuban  Campaign   is Being
Thoroughly Investigated.
Washington, Feb. 21 ���The session ot
the Miles Conrt of Enquiry began today with Col. Wm. M. Powell of the
ninth infantry, who was stationed at
Madison barracks, at the outbreak of
the WBr. The regiment went through
the Santiago campaign and after1 the
city was captured the regiment quartered in the city, he received requests
from his men for money to buy stuff to
eat. He investigated the so-called
canned roast beef and had some of it
served at his own table. "I could not
eat. it," he oontinued, it was a stringy,
unwholesome looking mass, more like
wet seaweed than anything else 1 can
think of. The men were sick and debilitated and ci nld not keep it on their
stomach. We ha! at tha time 152sick
Soon after tbat (lie fresh meat began
to arrive and tin men ate readily and
la>gan to pick lip in health. After-
nurds we were moved out of camp
near the San Jnau battlefield, where
much of our meat spoiled before we
could get it,"
Regarding the refrigerator beef Col.
Powell suid there was little to be said
against it, except some of it spoiled before it turived.
Major General Sumner, who was Colonel of the sixth cavlary at the outbreak of the war, and commanded a
brigade of cavlary throughout (ha
Santiago campaing, testified that com-
plaiu's about roast beef were beard in
the live*!*, bui. lo ��� j- ��� was laken, "because" he declared, "fhere was not any
use." That wss all we had and it
would not do any good. General Sumner said when he left Tama his adjutant reported that some ono had placed
on hoard twoi-uarters of beef which he
c'aimed as the result of treatment it
would keepin ihe tropics two or three
days. The second day it became so offensive that it was thrown overboard.
He did not know who put the beef on
board or by what authority.
Major Jesse M. Lee, 0th Infantry,
said refrigerator beef was furnished,
seemingly daily and frequently spoiled
before it could be gotten into camp,
two miles from the city. Much difficulty in transporting it was experienced
and uside from putrefaction there appeared little ground for complaint.
Lieutenant Ccl. Viesle, of the
first cavalry, testified. Our regiment used canned roast beef from
tbe time of the embarking at
Tampa until after the fall of Santiago.
There was little complaint about beef
because everybody knew we could get
nothing else. The men' did simply
not cat it, I did not ask for a change
becanse I knew that no other meat
could be had. On the transports tbe
men would eat a little of it and throw
the balance overboard. The contents
of a can had the appearance of a few
strings of' meet' floating around in
grease. It had a disagreeable odor.
Tho refrigerated beef issued after
the tall of Santiago was good, except
ou two occasions, when it was spoiled.
When I say good, I mean seemingly
fresh. I ate it once. The men at
first were nearly all sick. They mostly suffered from stomach troubles.

THE HIGH JOINTERS.
It would be unfair to say that the
Washing-ton negotiations have failed. They are fruitless for the present, but the fact that the Commissioners will resume them again in
August next is evidence that there
yet remains a reasonable prospect
of reaching an agreement. The
eminent men who compose the
Commission would not waste their
time in further negotiations if there
were nothing ahead but failure.
They had much to do. The accumulated differences of a generation have been up for settlement.
The politicians on this side will endeavor to make capital out of this
long adjournment without having
come to terms. But if we reflect on
all the difficulties that had to be
overcome, on all the prejudices that
had to be allayed, and on all the interests that had to be consulted,
we shall not be surprised that four
or five months of negotiations wen-
found unequal to the task. And as
to the Canadian Commissioners, we
have to remember that the session
of Parliament is past due. The
Queen's Government in Canada
must go on, treaty or no treaty,
and it is necessary that the Premier
and his colleagues should return to
Ottawa. In hfe**) meantime let the
negotiations remain in suspense.
Everything the Americans claim or
expect is now known to the Canadians, and everything the Canadians
claim or expect is known to
the Americans. The recess will
afford both sides an opportunity for
that cool reflection which both have
probably discovered is most essential to an understanding. Nothing
is necessarily lost by the delay; perhaps much will be gained by it.
The one surprise connected   with
the adjournment is   the   announcement that  the  chief   difficulty   has
arisen in   respect   to   the   Alaskan
boundary.     The average citizen on
either side of the dividing   line was
scarcely  prepared  for   this.      The
Miner suggested a  month  or   two
ago that this dispute would have to
go to arbitration.    It was   a  question by   itself,   and   one   requiring
special study   and   treatment.      Ii
this were understood and admitted,
the reference to arbitration  would
be easy.    That, at  least,   was  the
popular supposition.  But over what
was thought to be one of  the  simplest  matters   coming   before   the
conference, the Commissioners  arc
obliged to confess  that  agreement
has been impossible.     They admit
the arbitration,    but   cannot   agree
on the terms of reference.     To  the
public on both sides,   we  are sure,
this will  prove   a   surprising   and
quite unexpected development.      Ii
would only be a  degree  more  surprising if the difficulty should prove
insuperable. The shortest, simplest,
and   altogether   most    satisfactory
settlement of  the   whole   question
would be  the   purchase   by   Great
Britain or Canada of the disfiguring
and unnatural strip running   down
the Coast and shutting British  Columbia off from the  sea.      But   in
their present  craze  for  expansion,
the Americans would  hardly  listen
to a proposal of this kind.

The Victoria Globe says: "A nice
plight Mr. Martin has put this Province in, surely! Ruining the trade
of the Coast cities, frightening capital, arousing a spirit of enmity between the Canadians and Americans, the Alien Exclusion Act
stands a splendid monument to Mr.
Martin's unscrupulous and dangerous character. The Bill was introduced for but one purpose���to annoy the Laurier Government; and
Mr. Martin cares nough; if Heaven
itself should fall if he can but stab
the Liberal leaders at Ottawa."
"If you hadn't kicked the Old
Country out you would not have been
Anglo-Saxons,", said Lord Beresford
to an American audience a few days
ago. It would be hard to frame a
neater compliment to both nations
than this.

If the Press of Vancouver and
oilier cities speaks truthfully, Nelson is to have a treat next Friday
and Saturday evenings, on the appearance at the Nelson Opera House
of the Metropolitan Opera Co.,
which numbers 30 people. The
management of the opera house has
secured the company on a large
personal guarantee, the company
having a few days vacant between
the Coast and Spokane.
The burning of the Baldwin
Theatre in San Francisco, for which |
the company was booked for a long
engagement, made it necessary that
bookings be made in British Columbia, and Nelson is among the cities
fortunate enough to secure an engagement.
The opening production next Friday night will be the comic opera,
The Chimes of Normandy, and Fra
Diavolo will be presented Saturday
evening.     The   elegant   wardrobe
The ioe wasio splendid condition and
the weather ideal. The rinks were:
Lawreuoe, Walley, Carey and Tamblyn;
Kussall, Kinghom, Wallace and McLeod.
Because of the very good iee at present and the probabilities Hint it will remain for aeveral days an effort will be
made today to nrrauge contests for the
watoh charms donated by Judge Forin.
There are five eligible rinks ami these
oould play off Thursday, Friday and
Saturday nights. If Hub is not done the
charms may have to be held over until
next year as there is no assurance of
further good ice if another thaw should
come in a few days.

used by the company is a feature in
itself. The chorus is large and
pretty and the press of Vancouver
speak of the company as being one
of the best and largest ever appearing in that city.
Prices have been fixed at 75
cents, $1.00, and $1.50, the increase being due to the fact that, an
operatic organization is much more
expensive to carry than the ordinary dramatic and specialty company.
The company includes such well
known artists as Will Rising, the
tenor who was seen in London at
the Comedy Theatre for a run of
two years and at the Casino, New
York. Others in the company are
Blanche Aldriach, Jennette Lincoln,
Alice James, Lilliam Kemble,
Maurice Hoggerman and Eddie
Smith. The advance sale of seats
will begin this morning at the store
of the Canada Drug & Book Co.
WHOLESALERS KICK.
Do Not Like the Idea of an Increasd
Tax.
Wholesalers of Nelson are up in
arms against the Council for suggesting that their tax be raised from
$20 to $50 per year, when retailers
have to pay only $10 per year for the
privilege of doing a retail business,
while they may also, if they please,
do a wholesale trade.
"There are retail merchants in
Nelson," said a wholesaler yesterday, '*who do more business in the
wholesale line than two other wholesale houses I could name, and still
they pay for the privilege of doin(>
but a retail business, a matter of
$5 every six months, while the
wholesalers who do less business
'than they do, must pay the larger
tax. We do not think this right
and hope the city council will not
amend the bylaw as suggested."
EXPRESS  SYMPATHY.
the
Nelson   Orangemen      Act   in
Death of Mrs. Stokes.
The following letter will explain
itself:
To R. T. Stokes, Nelson, B.C.:
Dear Sir and Brother���At the last
regular meeting of Nelson L. O. L.
No. I692, Nelson, B. C, the undersigned were appointed a committee
to convey to you and your children
our expression of sympathy and
condolence in consequence of the
lamented death of your wife.
While you as a father are plunged
in a grief we cannot share, yet we
too are sensible of the great loss
you have sustained, and may the
Almighty Father, whom we as
Orangemen are taught to revere,
send comfort to you and|y our motherless children.

Dr. LaBau, who was threatened with
congestion of the lungs and has been
laid up for the past two or three days,
was reported yesterday ss much improved.
The Department of Public Works at
Ottawa, in an advertisement in another column, calls for tenders for the
supply ot poles and the construction of
a telegraph line from Spence's Bridge
to Nicola Lake and from Kamloops to
Nicola Lake.
The employes of the West Kootenay
Butcher Co. asked Tne Miner to state,
in reply to a recent communication in
the Tribune, that they know tbe difference between hell-divers and ducks and
that they never have sold any of the
foitner.
There will be a Coffee Social and

This nftertioou in the hall over Nee-

s me will deliver her first lecture of
conking, under Ihe auspices of the
Nelson Branch of the National Council
. I' Women. The hall was prepared for
lhe lecture yesterday afternoon, and
from all accounts the classes will be
veiy largely attended. Today's lecture
will be free and the ladies of Nelson
iiLiy learn much in regard to the making of Biiiips, which will be the subject
his afternoon. At the conclusion if

1 ure will be invited lo reiuuiu.
It appears that the Misses Crick-
may have suffered because of the
published reports of the deaths of
many of the Silver King miners at
their hospital. If this is so they
have certainly been done an injustice. The miners are usually kept
at the mines, it is said, until they
have passed that period when hospital aid would save them and are
brought to Nelson to die, and as
they are always treated at the
Crickmay hospital it is to that institution they are taken. Who is
to be blamed for the delay is not
known to the Miner, but it certainly
does not appear to be either the
Misses Crickmay or the physicians
connected wtth the hospital.
Bpecies huowu as "Salmo F'ario" or trout
proper. A cliarr can be readily distinguished from a salmon or trout by the
number aud form of the vomerine teeth.
Tlie limit of Cottonwood Lake is a va-
iety of the '-Salmo Fario" lint the
species of trout found iu Kootenay Lake
aud River jh kuowu as the "Salmo Pur-
puralns" or rainbow trout. 'This particular species is only fouud Isiive where ac
climatiheill in the livers and lakes of the
l'aoillc coast of Asia,North America, aud
Canada
lu addition to the ''Salmo purpnratus"
other fish are fouud in Kootenay Lake
and River which are not included in the
Doniiniou fishery regulations. There is
the ''Salmo Alpini.s" or common Northern charr, quantities ot which are lakeu
in the spring at the Outlet. Then there
are two species of the family of "Cy-
prini" or "Carps," known locnlly as
''suckers'' nn*! 'vquuw lish," There iB
albo the ''Ooregonus," a small variety of
the white fish of the Great Lakep.nnd the
"ThyinalliiB" ni lirnj ling, both belonging to the family of "Siilnionidae." Another fish, erroneously call ling! the ling
or "Mulva Vulgaris" is only found 111
salt water on tlie northern coasts of the
Eastern Hemisphere) is takeu in Kootenay lake, but I have not ac yet had an
opportunity of examining oue.
The framer of olnuse 2(1 ot tbe Dominion Fishery R- gnlations, to which your
article lefers, either through luadver-
lenoe or through fatherly care of the le
gal anglers of Nelsou, has uot included
the fish of Kootenay lake aud river iu
that clause. The section would apply,
however, to the fiab taken within the
close season therein 'fPfefcribed, out ot
Cottonwood lake. Possibly tho Miuer
knows more about the fishing there thau
I do as I have never even been to that
lake. It, however, the Miuer would
pour forth the vials of its legal wrath 011
the wholesale slaughter ot the fish locally known as "Kokanees" it would he
doing a good work. These fish are the
trout ("Salmo Puipnrn'iw") from the
lake preparing to ascend the creeks for
spawuiug. At that period, like many
other species ot salmones, the shape aud
color undergoes a considerable change.
A precisely similar change may be noticed iu the salmon of the rivers of Great
B 'pain. The form becomes elongated
the Hub increase in 5-ize, the nose becomes sharp ami pointed, and the lower!
jaw of the male fish turns upwards. The
fish in this stage nre wholly nutit [or
fund yet numbers ate raked out of the
creeks limine the nutiimu by means of
hooka fastened to sticks. Tne fish.beine
full of ova, millions of youug fl _ are
wasted. The liiime Protection Act of
1898 (Provincial Act) provides���inter
alia -against tbe "capture of trout" by
any " device other than hook and line."
Tm' general term "trout" is used���uo
particular species being mentioned us ,iu
lhe Dominion Fisheries Regula<ioas���
so it may be presumed lhat the term will
i elude "'Salnio-purpuratuB."
With mouy apoligies  for   trespassing

to be a little misleading. It will come
as a shock to niauy if I venture to sn---
geBt.tbat even a lawyer may kuow a
little more law than a journalist. Ho
also, though I admit that litis is highly
improbable, possess a little general information outside his profession.
I have taken a fair number of fish in
Kootenay Lake and Kiver,I hare also .seen
many llsh tbat havo beeu taken
there. But I have never taken or seen
tBken or even heard of being taken those
BpecieB of flab known as ''brook trout" or
���'epeokled trout" in Kootenay Lake or
Biver. The family of "Salmonidae" belong to the "Pbysostomi" or fouitb order

done and a certificate ot improvements
applied for, it shall not he necessary
to do any more work or pay anr more
money as Ion*; as the certificate remains in force.
In respect to an application for a
Crown Grant it is to be provided thut
the holder of a mineral claim for
which a certificate of improvements
has been granted and recorded shall
make application to the Minister of
Mines, enclosing his certificate of improvements, the Crown grant fee of
ten dollars, the Mining Recorder's certificate, tbe field notes and fiat and
necessary affidavit, within three
months from tbe date of snch certificate of improvements, and in defarlt
the certificate shall lapse and become
apsolutely void.
One joint owner may sne another
for his share of work or cost.
Then follow some virtual amendments
which, to be understood, reqnire to
be read with the original Act.
The fees would appear to be raised
all around. For recording an abandonment ; the fee is to be ten dollars
instead of two and a half. In a Crown
Grant, ten dollars, instead of five.
In abstracts and other certificates the
fees are to be at tbe discretion of the
Mining Recorder, subject to approval
of tbe Minister.
These are the principal amendments.

are mines now sacking ore for shipment this spring Miues developing
are: Erie, Hoodoo, Tail Holt, Ohio.

A number of thrilling experiences
are the result of winter travel anion-;
the blizzard-swept peaks ot tbe Kootenays, but it is doubtful it many are
more calculated to raise the hair on
end than the one enjoyed by J. Hind,
mining engineer, and L. A. Thurston
of this town. On their way to examine the Chapleau property on the
second north fork of Lemon creek they
were over-taken by a teriffic blizzard
which swept them out of their course
and down over the steep descent ol
the mountain. As the Chapleau lies
on the south side, on discovering their
whereabouts there was nothing to be
done but wait for a lull in the storm
and ascend to the summit. In this
attempt Thurston atarted tbe two feet
or more of snow lj ing atop the hatd
crust formed by the last thaw anil
began a rapid journey with increasing
speed toward the creek bottom some
2000 teet below. After being carried
about 25 feet, by skillfully thrusting
his stick through the crust below, he
parted company with the incipient
avalanche whioh at last reached mag
nificient proportions and went roarinu
to the bottom marked by a huge
"smoke" of flying snow. The incident was witnessed by Hind from a
safe distance above, who reports it as
one of the closest calls he has seen.
After a fatiguing journoy against a
blinding sheet of snow they reached
tho south side and the Ohupleau cabins. They report the Chapleau to be
looking better than ever. Twenty-five
tons of rich ore arc sackod for shipment, the men are uow upraising,
sinking aud driving ahead in some ef
the finest ore yet taken from this remarkable vein. Two carloads will be
shipped April 15.
*   *   *
A copy of the Bill to amend the
Mineral Aot has beeu received. In
respect to miner's certificates, it U
proposed to enact that they shall run
from the date of their issue and shall
expire at midnight on the 81st of May
next or some subsequent 81st of May.
Only ono person or joint stock company shall be named in such certificate. A person may obtain a free
miner's license by the 1st of May, or
if the 1st should be a holiday, then on
the next duy which is not n holiday,
to run from midnight on the 81st of
May. This would seem to require
that the license should be token out a
mouth in advance.
In case a certificate should expire,
the miuer may oDtain special certificate on payment of a fee of twenty-
five dollars, whioh shall have the effect
of reviving his title to mineral claims
owned at the time of the lapse of the
former certificate.
