Mrs- Martha M. Place Pays
the Death Penalty.
SHE WAS QUITE CALM
The Condemned Murderess Walked Quietly to the Death Ohair and Met
Her End Bravelj.
Sing Sing, N. Y., March 20.���Mrs.
Martha M. Place, who killed her stepdaughter at their home iu Brooklyn,
Pebruary 1, 1898, was eleotrocuted in
Sing Sing prison this morning, the
first womau to die in the chair in this
State. Mrs. Place went to her death
impassive, calm and with no more
than a murmured prayer. With her
when she entered the death houBe was
the warden, on whose arm she leaned
heavily, her minister, Rev. Dr. David
Cole, of lookers, an old friend and
aged pastor, a woman physician, one
of the matrons of the prison and two
keepers. Mrs. Place was dressed iu
black, a gown that she had made to
wear at her new trial, or as she first
thought to her freedom. She seemed
to tower above the waiden, who kept
her arm tightly within his, aud one
arm around her to support, hor. Her
light gray hair was brushed smoothly
back from her forehead ; one hand held
a small prayer hook. The woman's
eyeB were closed and she picked lnr
way to the chair without loweriug
her head. As she sat down her lips
moved again in prayer and she said :
"God help mu." The two men who
followed her closely wero there in an
instant. Dr. Irvin with an assistant
helped to cut off the view of the witnesses seated around the chamber. It
was but a moment's work to bare tho
log and attach the electrode, the prison
matron drawing her skirts ont in front
of the chair. Tho soc.ind electrode
wns clamped down o***- the head in nn
Instant; Mrs. Place never stirred
Her it&i'il pastor walked quietly away
He could not bear to look nt her
Quioker than it lias ovor been done before, tbo straps across tho face buckled
OU, the pad drawn over th* oyos ; tlie
signal given and the lever thrown
down, The women attendants pressed
close up against the ohair. One could
hardily see a movement of the body.
It grew rigid, the fingers gripped tbo
palms, the prayer book in tbe woman's
left hand twisted across th" wrist and
slipped partly out when the muscles
relaxed. Her mouth, small with thin
lips, merely tightened, it seemed, as
though iii quiet content. There was
uo pain, uo suffering, no sceno of nny
kiud. The woman in the death chamber seemed strangely out of place. Tbe
womau physician was bright looking, sharp in ber movements, rapid in
what she did. But her dress was wlml
gave the scene a strange nspeot. She
wore a gray dress nnd a huge bat with
pronounced crimson trimmings. Sbe
both fastened on the electrode and examined the heart, With tbe prison
matron, hIui stood directly iu front of
Mrs. Place und watched her face as
slio died. Both were affected, but performed thor duties well. At exactly
11 lOl, State Electrician Davis gave the
shock. It was a voltage of 17(!(l abont
Ibe usual strength, nnd was continued
for four seconds. Then it was lowered
to 200 and maintained for 68 seconds.
When the current was shut off Dr.
Irvin, prison nbysicinii. felt her neck,
where (hero wns a slight, pulsation of
the arteries. But the woman wns
dead and those physicians who saw tbo
electrocution and examined the body
afterwards gave it as their opinion
that death had been instantaneous. After a brief interval, a second shook
was given. Those who stood around
did not even hour a respiratory moon.
but it little froth oozefl from the lips.
The voltage wns the snmc ns in He
first shock and again lasted four seconds, It wns gradually diminished to
200 and when the current was shut off
the body sank back quietly into the
ohair, Thn lower limbs had stiffened
somewhat, there was hardly a mark
where tho electrodes had been. Thore
the woman lay, ber face just as she
had walked into the death house impassive, culm, with simply tightly
drawn lips. Tho body remained in lln*
chair until after the Witnesses had filed
out of the ehiniiber. when it was removed to the autopsy table, whore autopsy wns conducted behind closed
doors, no one being permitted to ho
present, except the operating surgeons,
Dr. Irvin, Dr. McKeuiia and Dr. .lennie Qrin. The report was sealed and
not made public, at present. Later in
thn day the body was taken to an undertakers nnd embalmed. It wns
shipped tonight to New Jersoy. Tbo
precaution regarding the autopsy report wns taken merely becanse of the
int.-use interest aroused regarding
the sauitv of Mrs. Place. Indeed,
thoso who have been with Mrs. Plaoe
from beginning to end, say that Mrs.
Place was a perfectly sane woman.
She was prepared for her death earlv
this morning by Rev. Dr. Cole and she
said to him : "I will meet my dealh
bravely, I will put my tntst in God "
She was ready when the warden visited hor at 10:85. She hud said goodliv
to Mrs. Sage, who had been kiud to
her, with tears in her eyes aud to her
attendants and there was uot a word
���pnWn fluting the death marei.   It
was from the top floor of the old hospital building in the eastein pnrt of
the yard, a distnnce of 500 or 600
feet to the chamber. The party descended two flights of Btairs, passed
through the dismantled wards of the
old hospital, through manv rooms aud
last of all through the dimly lighted
corridor that led within. The colls of
murderers row were draped with curtains ; there was no person to look at
the woman ou that journey to the
! ohair. After it was ovei- Warden
Sago said the whole affair was oven
more satisfactory than he had hoped
for. There is no denying that the
wardou had feared a break down or a
scene.
ANOTHER ACCOUNT.
Sing Siug, N. Y., March 20. ���Yesterday afternoon Warden Sage decided
to notify Mrs. Place of the day of her
exocution. Mrs. Place mot him in her
quiet way, aud he said, "I have
como, Mrs. Place, so that thero may
be no misunderstanding, You are to
be ready on Monday morning at 11
o'clook." The woman looked at him
and Baid simply, "I will be ready;
I will put my trust in God." The
warden spoke a few comforting
words, and then left her. Mrs Place
cried a little, but bore up wonderfully
well.
Yesterday evening Rev. Dr. Cole of
Yonkers came. Many years ago the
womau attended at bis Sunday
School. He is deeply affected at her
end. He spent the uight in the warden's apartments and today he prepared Mrs. Place for death. After he
left her, the woman had no consolation but her bible. She promised that
she would boar up well, aud, indeed,
though suffering keenly, Bhe maintained her cnluiueBB.
With her in her room all night was
Mrs. Kathryn Ooultry, one of the matrons. She had been one of Mrs.
Plaoe's regular atteudents. In an adjoining cell Keepers Knnnane andLav-
ery were on the watch. All the last
night the matron sat beside hor ward
in a chair, and never for a moment
did she trust the condemned woman tn
herself. Mrs. Place got up several
times and looked from ber window at
tho storm that was howling across the
Hudson. Hor attendant each time
went with her. and so the night
passed. The black gown tbat she wore
to tbo electric chair, Mrs. Place mado.
and when Bhe made it she said it was
to wear ut hor uew trial. Hor Inst
goodbye to the only relative thn'
visited hor was said ou Satnrdav
Peter Qarretson was with her for nu
hour then. Tho woman had written
mtniv timer to her son, n Ur*i of 1*
but bo answered none of her letters
.She bad often spoken of him nntl seem
od giievod because bo did not reply
To her husband, also, she bail written ;
but bp. too. was silent.
In her journey from ber room to tho
door of tbe death house, Mrs. Place
passed the doors of four condemned
murderers namely Meyer, Macdonald
Braun and Pullerson. Heavy cm-lain*-
bad been bung over lhe gratings and
the meu within could only hear her footsteps as Mrs. Place was brought dow n
the corridor. Yesterday she said to
her spritual adviser that she wanted
forgiveness from every one and treolv
forgave others. The matron reported
this morning tbat Mrs. Place did in t
lie inwii until half past two, and then
did so without removing her clothing.
She slept well until six. She aroFB
without apparent regret and wns reasonably composed. The witnesses entered the death houso at 10:40 and th"
doors to the building were immediately closed. Mrs. Place died at 11:01
and made no scene. The first shoo-
lusted four seconds. This makes the
24th electrocution in the state of New
York.
The crime for which Mrs. Place
suffered tbo extreme penalty was tb.*
murder of hor step-daughter, Ida
Place, at their home in Brooklyn on
February   IT,   1898.   The girl was 22
years old. A double murder had beon
planned by the woman. She killed
her step-daughter when the girl wns
taking an afternoon nap. by splitting
lm scull open with an axe and pouring
vitrol on her face and into hor month.
Tbo same evening tb" woman lav in
wait for her husband in a dark ball-
way of tbo houso. When be entered
sbe struck bini in the face with an axe
inflicting a serious wound. He managed to get outside tbo front door and
alarmed tbo neighbors bofore he he-
ciinio unconscious. When the police
and neighbors entered the house thoy
found Mrs. Plaoe in a bedroom, in
which the gas w.ts escaping, and she
was shamming nn consciousness. Mr.
Place recovered and said bis wifo tried
to nuirtler him. The woman was arrested. Tlio motive of tho crime was
jealousy of hor step-daughter.

TROUBLE ANTICIPATED
Governor Brady Wrote Last Month Asking That Troops be Sent to the
Scene of Conflict-
Washington, Maroh 20,���Some important statements concerning the
Alaskan Boundary line" situation are
given ofnoial correspondence now ou
file in the State and Interior Departments, which has never before been
made publio. The controversy between miners on either Bide of the
line within the piiBt week led up to a
number of casualties. Governor Brady
of Alaska, as long ago as tbe latter
part of February, called attention to
the threatening condition of affairs.
On February 21, Governor Brady,
who wns here, had a lonference with
both Seoretary Bliss, who was then
just leaving the Cabinet, and Secre-
tnrv Hay, in whioh he urged that the
agressive nets ot the Canadians be
promptly submitted iu a formal note
of warning of impending trouble and
the possibility of bloodshed. The note
will bo considered at the next Cabinet
mooting. On Feb. 28, the archives
show, the Governor submitted a formal
coniiimuicafion to the Secretary of the
Interior, in which he speaks of the
hitter feeling along the line that made
lhr, presence of troops, in his opinion,
imperative.
Among other things,Governor Brady
-���aid in   his letter :
"The Canadians, from our way of
looking at matters, have constantly
shown a spirit of aggression so tar as
tho boundary line is concerned. This
is shown in three instances. There is
a point upon the Stickeen, which for
veins hflj been reearded as uoon the
boundary lino. Thousands of miners
> ave passed up the I oundary line,
thousands have passed up and down
ihe river, merohauls have done immense business and this was always
recognized as lhe boundary line. An
American oitlzen is operating a quartz
lodge six miles below the recoguized
boundary. Tbe Canadian officials have
gone down six miles below him, thus
making a gap of 12 miles. They compel him to pay duties ou his snpplioB
which he carries in to operate this
ledge. Last year in February an order went out to the customs official of
the Mounted Polico to move from the
recognized stations on the bouudary
lines to tbe summit of the Pass. Our
people had uo notification of such intention but thoy made the move aud
some of our citizens were at that time
in favor nf going up and compelling
them to move back by force, but
when I was sounded upon it,of course,
I premptorially forbade any such act.
I took the trip to the summit of Chil-
coot Pass and found the British flag
flying there and the customs officials
collecting duties from all who had
their goods piled up there on tbe
suow. I asked the officer iu charge by
what authority ho had moved -from
the Lake to the Summit and he replied, hy command of his superior officer. Now our customs officials at
Skagway havo not recognized those
lines sn'far as sending convoys over
with British goods. The c.invnys got
compensation from the persons they
convoy so far as Log Cabin, the point
from which the British moved to the
summit of White Pass. Recently the
news has reached us here that two
convoys wero imprisoned for undertaking to continue to convoy as far as
Log Cabin, for two days. Lats last
autumn the gold diggings wero discovered on a creek called Porcupine
Crook, whioh is a tributary of Chilat
River, which is upon the third trail,
viz; The Dnltou, or Chilcat trail.
Those discoveries, are proven to be
very rich and (hey are very close to
the '.in mile limit, whioh also wo always have regarded the boundary. The
cl.iims havo boon worked during the
winter and people aro satisfied with
their richness and manv meu have
gone in with stocks of goods and propose to start in business with the prospect of lively mining season. This
immigration has been extensive from
the fact that a few woeks ago tbo Parliament of Hritish Columbia passed an
Alien Act, which would throw part of
tin* intended Immigration in the Atlin country into the Porcnpino district,
instead and the nggressivenoss which
has been shown the Stickeen and the
passes would impel the Canadians to
move down ami claim this country a��
belonging to them. I think I know
the temper Of our people nnd feel sure
in saving that if such a step is attempted on the part of the Canadians
conflict will ensue." This danger is
so Imminent that I deem it wise that
our troops in Alaska he ordered to
toko oosscssion of these lines and
maintain our sovereignty over the soil.
I see no other stop for us to take if we
want to avoid a conflict with Great
Britain. I regard tho Porcupine district especially aa the point of danger. "
Secretary Hay. on February 8, wrote
to the Interior Department a letter, in
which he reverts to the boundray   negotiations,   Among other things,   he
Isa-rit  "In >h��  whole itreteb of thi
coast boundary line between Prince
Of WaleB Island aud Mount St. Eilas,
there are but two localities in which a
boundary has been provisionally established pending the eventful determination of the entire question, namely on
the Stickeen River a.id at the passes
north of Dyea and Skagway." Continuing, Secretary Hay snys; "The
looatiou of the so-called Pan Handle
boundary line, between Alaska and
the British Northwestern Territoty, is
now under negotiation without agreement so far. U ni il tbe two Governments shall reach and accord as to tbo
aefinitive boundary, it would appear
that the point provisionally located on
the Stickeen River should he respeotad
by both Governments as a modus Vivendi without prejudice as to the final
fixing of the line. A vory full report
of tbe Canadian engineer, Mr. J. H.
Hunter, should, it is thought, suffice
to determine whether there has since
been such encroachment upou the jurisdiction of the United States as is alleged in Governor Brady's letter."
Seorstary Hay concludes by suggesting
that unless it should distinctly appear that the provisional understanding of January and February 1878 has
been disregarded by the British agents
in the Stickeen valley, this Government should not make complaint or
inquiry of tho Canadian Goverumeut
in respect to the statements.
Concerning the reported trouble referred to in the above despatch, The
Vancouver News Advertiser of a recent date Bays:
Vancouver is the home of the fake
reporter. The New York World of
yesterday has a speoial from Vancouver telliug of a reported fight be
tween Americans and Canadians near
tbe Dalton trail in which four men
were killed. Carl Slummerfelt is given
as the man who brought the news.
i��n Associated Press despatch from
Washington comments upou it, and
makes some absurd remarks about Can-
adiaus moving the lines of tbe Alns-
kau bouudary. The local evening papers yesterday referred to the matter.
One said Slniunierfelt came dowu ou
the Tees and roughly refused to be interviewed in Yictoria where the boat
lauded its passengers. From inquiries
made by the News-Advertiser it would
appear that* uo man of the name of
Slnnnnerfelt came down on the Tees.
Another local evening paper says Carl
Slummerfelt came over to Vancouver
from Victoria on l'hursdny morning.
The Charmer's passenger list, as published by that same paper, givef the lie
to the statement.
The report of a "pitched battle" hits
heel *1* to-nphnd all over tin* world le,-
now. Americans particularly wiii
believe it to be true and yet the ft cts
point to this Carl Slniunierfelt being a
mythical personage. One local evening paper has shipped him off to California to get him out of the way. To
show that uo Curl Slummerfelt was on
the Tees we publish the list of the 4.")
passengers.    *   *   *

no one has the least knowledge of Moyelle ; yet ou the company's maps and
time tables it is Moyelle, uot Moyie.
The only reason there can he is that
the Company is endeavoring to destroy Moyie in order that it may build
up a town of its own at Moyelle.
That is tbe situation as presented by
tbe Moyie Board of Trade, and it is
anything but a creditable one. If
tbe Company has anything to offer in
explanation or excuse, the publio. we
are sure, will agree in saying that it
is high time it was forthcominK.

There has been a large increase in
the aggregate trade of the Dominion
for the eight months of the fiscal year,
in comparison with the corresponding
peroid of last year. But the increase
is entirely in imports, there bein(? a
decline "in exports of nearly five millions in value. This means that oue
source of revenue has fallen off, but
b dug iutoxictnted with the good times
of the past year or two we are keeping
up expenditure by heavier purchases
than ever. The Goverumeut will profit by tbo increased customs duties,
aud at the end of the year Mr. Fielding may have another big Burplus to I
boast of; but unless the near future
shall see a revival of exports more
closely approximating our extravap-ant
purchases, the couutry is apt to sweat
for a prosperity tbat is by no means
as real as it looks.
FROM
$200.00
TO
The Rosslaud Record scolds the banks
of tbat city because they do not help
to support the newspapers by advertising. This would not be surprising in
a number of British Columbia newspapers that might be named, but it
is surprising iu one ns intelligent and
as ably conducted as The Record. It
is adoptinR au entirely incorrect view
of advertising, aud oue by no means
complimentary to the dignity and independence of the Press. Possibly the
banks would deaserve scolding if
newspapers subsisted on cbaritv. Perhaps some of them do, but it would
bn better in that case if they kept the
fact as carefully concealed as possible
Neither banks nor any other business concerns, institutions, or corporations are expected to advertise merely
out of consideration for the newspapers
Aud a newspaper demeans itself
when it solicits patronage on thai
ground. Advertising is a business iu
itself. The banker or merchnnt who
dosires to push his trade will keen his
business conspicuously before the public by means of advertising. If for
any reason lie does not choose to do
this it is his own affair. The newspaper is tho medium through which
this is doue. If conducted with ability
and enterprise it will in time gain the
confident" and support ot itn cunati
ttieuoy of readers, aud then it becomes
valuable as au advertising medium.
The business man who appreciates
the advantage this offers will use it for
the advancement of his own interest;
but should ho conclude on the other
hand that no benefit is to be derived
from advertising, it is clearly his privilege to act ou his couvictiou without
exposing himself to the reproach of
the newspaper.
No man is bound to advertise, any
more than he is bound to keep a donkey cart. If a doukey cart pays be
will set one up, and if advertising
pays lie will advertise. It is his
own business ho has to consider, nut
that of the newspaper. It] is open to
The Record, however, and to othor
newspapers to say, if so inclined, that
many business men do not yet understand the business of advertising. There
may be a dozen good reasons why the
banks in Rosslaud do not advertise; of
that we kuow nothing. But in these
days of competition uo person whose
business depends on pnblio patronage
can afford not to advertise, if he has
the intelligence to know how to ad-
vertise judiciously, Especially is
this true in a new uud rapidly developing country liko British Columbia.
Nelson offers nn excellent illustration
iu point. In three years it has mncb
more than doubled its population. Men
who were in business three years ago
and do not advertise are not known hy
the thousands who havo come in
siuce. Tho shrewd business man understands this, and be is careful to
keep his name prominently forward,
with the result that every uew settler
knows of him and is likely, therefore,
to trade with him. The same with
the banker ns with the merchant, ouly
in a modified degree no doubt. The
in w settler has a draft to buy, a deposit to make, or an account to open ;
he goes to tho bank he knows, which
is the bank tbat advertises. The only
duty of the newspaper is to afford all
advertissrs the opportunity to introduce themselves to the public whom
they dtsiro to cultivate; and if a live,
clean newspaper, that is not only
road ou the street but is welcomed in
the homes of the people, it will re
coive this patronage for the reason
tbat it earns it and gives value   for it.

NO SUNDAY LABOR
SABBATH   OBSERVANCE' SOOIETY
COMBS OUT AGAI-Ni-iTir.
Reasons Are Given to  Show  That Men
Should Work But ?ix  Pays
a Week.
The following, which explains itmlf,
1ms been handed to The Miner for
publication:
To tho Employers of Labor, and tlie
advocates of Sunday work through:
nut the Province of  British   Coium-
\Vo the Sabbath Observance Society
of Nelson, B. 0., advance the following reasons why Sunday Labor should
cease in our Province.
First���A Physical Reason :
Science teaches us that after six consecutive (lays of work our physical
natures through exhaustion, demand
cine dav's rest.
Experiments have demonstrated that
Labor cau do more work iu a year by
working six days rather than seven in
one week. *
It therefore follows that Sunday La-
bor is "of profitable from a business
point of view.
The advantages of a Sabbath rpst
me (a) Better workmanship. (b)
More work at the year's end for less
money. (<-) Leisure time to the workers for self culture.
Second ���An Intellectual Reason:
We affirm that man is au intellectual
bring, that everything he knows has
to be learned. Leisure time is indis-
pensible for bis development.
The greatness of a Nation consists
uot iu the wealth of its rich men, but
it does ensnsist in tbe greatness of its
intellectual men. We affirm that onr
great men are being constantly recruit-
ted from the ranks of the common people.
Therefore, to take away their leisure time is to degrade man to the
level of a machine, so that one of the
liberties of the Rights of Man are infringed upon and the praotice of Sunday Labor bBOocies u grave and National danger.
Third���A Moral Reason:
This Society believes in the existence of the living God, and that the
fear ot him is the beginning of kuowl-
That His Government is not a thing
of chance, but a system of perfect
law.
In this life of ours there is very little of what can be called freedom of
choice.
It is for us to discover the laws of
Nature and obey them. By obedience
to those laws we are led right, by disobedience they become terrible to us.
We assert that. Sabbath labor violates
a law of our moral, intellectual and
physical natures, nnd continuation
tberoiu must* bring forth its just punishment,
CHARLES ANGUS M'KAY,
President.
HE   IS    SLAUGHTERING   HOGt*'.
P.  Burns Has   Trouble   About a Ship
ment. of Porkers.
P. Burns & Oo. recently shippel in
No head of hogs from Kansas, which
arrived at Russell, just across ihe
line, on Thursday evening, says the
Cascade Record of Saturday last As
this custom houso is not a warehousing point, Officer Rose declined to admit the porkers, even on payment of
duty, and they were kept, in the burg
ofRussell, till this morning.
Bv the expenditure of about |60 in
telegraphic charges, etc., Mr. Burns'
agents in Cascade secured an order
from the Minister of Customs at Ol-
tawa, admitting the swine. The order contained the provision that the
hogs must be slaughtered under the
supervision of Collector Rose. If any
one misses that official from his post
for the next few weeks, ho may possibly be found at the slaughter house,
carrying out the order of the Minister
of Customs to the letter.
LOCAL  AND PERSONAL
The Citv   Council meets  in   special
sessiou   tomorrow   to further consider
the   revision   of   the   City   By-laws
The work will probably   be  completed
at this meeting.
There were over two hundred visitors to the reading rooms of the Free
Public Library last week and an increased number of books were loaned
to subscribers.
Two drunks were before Police Mag
intuitu Crease yesterday. Ono wi*s
warned to leave town, which be promised to do, and tbe other added iff- and
costs to the City's revenue.
Kuskanook will be Hit) (ermiiius of
the Nelson und Bedlington railway.

Gamble & O'Reilly closed a silo en
Saturday for Lots 88, 84, SIS and 86,
Blook 22, to Erie Palraquist for I860.
The same firm sold Block 0, Additn u
"A" for |760 to T. H. Roberts.
The sale to the Atbabasoa Mining
Company of a portion of the timber
limits of tho estate of the Nelson Saw
mill Company was rattlled by Judge
Forin yesterday. Only $200 is involved.
City Assessc r Straclmu lias all but
completed his assessment of the Wiut
Ward and will start on the West Ward
in a few days. He will have the work
completed id time to return the rolls
to the City Council on April 10.
It is probable that when Aid.
Charles Hillyer returns fi-oni Victoria
the legal tunglo in which the Gray
estate is involved will be straigleni d
out and the mill will bo again started
up with a full complement of men.
Whon the handsome block of the
Hudson's Bay Company at iho South
east comer of Stanley and Baker
Streets is finished next fall, a full line
of everything that goes to make up a
first class departmental store wll be
carried here.
It was only to be expected that the
winter would have one more fling before flnnlly giving way to spring so
no one  was particularly   supriMd  at
yesterday's snow storm and cold
weather. The barometer has been
predicting a storm for some days.
A story is going the rounds now to
the effect that the comer of Kootenay and Baker Streets will be further
improved by the erection of a first
class hotel on tin! lots owned by A.
B. Hodgins, Nolson has no reason to
complain uow of its hotel accommodation.
It is aUmt time for the lacrosse enthusiasts to think about organizing for
the season. The iufusiou of considerable new blood this winter should
make the Nelson team stronger than
ever. An effort will be made to organize an Association and have a regular
schedule of games with other Kootonay clubs.
"I can sell goods without advertising," say�� one class of business meu���
so culled. So they can got from Nolson to Vancouver by riding a horse or
toiug afoot, but the man who takes
the cars gets there a great deal quicker
aud much more easily. Advertising
is to any kind of business exactly
what the railway is in transportation.
The wheelmen of the City want a
road to ride on If they unite in an
agitation to secure it and do something themselves to provide the necessary funds a good road way would no
doubt be tho result. Tho old wagon
road through Bogustowu could be
fixed up ut a small cost, and would provide a stretch of two miles of good
wheeling.
The tile culv< rt to carry off the
storm water will be laid in Ward Creek
gulch botween Victoria and Baker
streets as soon as possible. The Oity
will not fill in the street at once but
the completion of the culvert will provide a place for those doing any excavating this spring to dump the earth
and thus assist to fill in the gulch. In
the fall the street will probably be
completed.
The needs of Nelson will be brought
prominently before the members of the
House of Commons during the present
sessiou. Over $300 has already been
subscribed by oitizens to send a mun
io Ottawa to press upon the powers
that be the necessity of erecting a Government building hero aud doing a few
other things that will improve the
Oity aud stand he monuments to the
wisdom of the present Government*.
A Miuer reporter recently paid a
visit to the new hotel Mr. Roberts
has opened some two miles up on the
banks of the Lake. It will be a very
great attraction to the public during
the boating season and people will
find everything they require in the refreshments line. Mr. Roberts is enlarging the premises and is providing
large diuing rooms suitable to large or
small parties aud everything will le
of the best obtainable.

THE FOURTH LETTER.
To The Bditor of Tho Nelson Miner:
Sir���Whilst quite agreeing with Oil-
zens' No. 1 and 2 that the worn til
should bo moved off East Baker streei.
tho crucial question remains inst
where it did sonic years ago.
If tliese women are to bo moved off
Baker street, where arc they to go'/
Whilst human nature remains ns it
is, and probably always will be, women of the East Baker street class
must exist, and should be reganli'.l
rather as social safeguards thnn
curses.
In every civilized community from
the days of Babylon to the present
time, "we have certain knowledge < f
there existence, tiud in new count rit s
where few men can marry, they am
almost an absolute necessity; sad and
unpleasant as this truth may be in
many.
Simply to turn these women out
of their present abodes would be lo
spread over the towu a number of
bouses of prostitution in the guise of
millinery establishments, cigar stores.
and third rate hotels, all the attendants in which would ho immoral women, and most fruitful sources of disease and vice. Again many of these
women who own their properties, aro
tor the most part, for prostitutes, well
behaved; and have certain rights
which ought to be respected.

It is Said That Princess   Victoria Will
Wed Prince George of Greece.
Vienna, March 20, ���A report is enr-
ront in diplomaric c'rclos here of the
engagement of Princess Viotoria of
Walos lo Prince George of Greece.
Tho journey of the Princess of Wales
to Athens is supposed to ho connected

Princes Victoria Alexandra Ogla
M'iry is the second daughter of the
Prince of Wales, and was born on July
6, lKfiB. Last year it was rumored
tbat the PrinccsH would probably be-
como engaged to John Baring, Baron

The   Shamrock  is Being   Built  Very
Much   on the Sly.
London, March 20.��� A friend of Sir
Thomas Lipton, who saw the cup
challenger Shamrock yesterday, says
thnt the framework of the yacht has
been completed, including the planking nnd plating. The vessel will probably not be ready for launching before,
the end of Mny. The strictest precautions are taken to preserve secrecy
regarding the lines and other details
of the yacht. Two detectives are stationed day and night outside the sbed,
in which sho is being built, to prevent any unauthorized persons from
entering. A novel expedient has
beeu adopted to prevent outsiders from
learning anything about the yacht,
namely to dress the whole hull during
construction with a canvas covering,
termed a petticoat. Tbe Shamrock
will wear this ugly garment from now
until she is finished, aud even during
the actual launching until the water
conceals hor naked outlines. In fact,
the most modest, women oould do no
more to conceal her charms than the
designers of the Shamrock are doing
to ptotect her nakedness from the eyes
of peeping Toms.

Sim Francisco, Onl., March 20. ���A
special from Taoonin, Wash., says immense copper ledges have been dlflOOV
ered on Prince William Island, in
Alaska, between Ora nnd Vadea, not
f:ir from the mouth of Copper River.
In ono instance glacial action has laid
bare a copper ledge ii.OOO feet long,
four feet wide, extending from Tidewater to back of a high bluff. Near
by other copper ledges, though not so
favorably exposed, are being opened hy
men who claim they are working for
the Standard Oil Syndicate. An English syndicate is represented there by
Llewellyn Williams, a mining expert
of Loudon, who was ordered there
by cable from Australia.

Tbe Boundary Creek Times of recent
date says: The Snowstorm is bonded
again for a big figure. There is something peculiarly attractive in this property for the experienced mining man
and he is always anxious to seoure It
under his coutrol. Years ago George
Turner of Vancouver bonded the property, but his business affairs called
him elsewhere; then Patrick Clark
secured a bond and did considerable
development work. He reluctautly
left tbe mine to give his attention to
Republic properties, in which he was
heavily interested. No sooner was the
Clark bond cancelled thau the Kootenay Development Company rebonded
the property for 165,000. This company did considerable work and paid
JB, 600 ou account ot the bond. For
some reason known only to tbe members of thu company, the money was
not forthcoming to meet the second
payment. This week J. W. Astlev,
the well known Rosslaud mining en-
igueer, took a bond on the property
for $70,000. Ten per cent, is to be
paid in cash within two weeks, It
is reported that Mr. Astley represents
the Kootenay Development Oompany.

group of famous Greenwood camp
properties. It lies adjacent to the
Stemwinder on one side, tlie Rawhide
on the other and the Old Ironsides in
front. It. is a full Crown Grantee
claim. Considerable work has been
done on the property. There is an incline shaft for 170 feet. At the 70-
foot level a crosscut runs for a distance
of SIS feet in ore, and at 190 feet, there
aro 176 feet in crosscuts and drifts. Ai
this level two ore veins wero crosscut. One is 40 feet wide, while tin
hanging wall ou tin* other vein has
not beeu reached. The ore is n ooppei
pryitos in a mixed gangie of oalooute
with some specularite and iron pyr
ilos. From the old 17-foot shaft values of $10 to $S0 in gold and three t<
10 per cent, copper were secured. An
average sample from tho new work
ings gave copper 14.0 per cent., silvei
80 ounces and gold $10 to $15. Tin-
ore is self-fluxing. Tho Snowsboo i>

Manila, March 20. ���It is reported ou
good authority that Aguinaldo is taking extremo measures to suppress Bigns
calculated to cause a cessation of hostilities. Twelve residents of Manila
have beeu condemned to death because
they wrote advising surrender, and all
loyal Filipinos have been called upon
to perform the national service of despatching them. On Friday last General Lagarda visited Malolos for the pur-
poso of advising Aguinaldo to quit.
He argued with the insurgent leader
and attempted to convince him of
the folly of his persistence in the face
of overwhelming odds. Aguinaldo
was furious at the advice and ordered
General Lagarda to be executed immediately, and tbe unfortunate geu-
eral was promptly decapitated.
Among the incidents of yesterday's
fighting was the coolness exhibited by
a oompany of the Washington volunteers, who crossed the river in a native oauoe under heavy fire, fifteen
being taken across on eaoh trip of the
small boat to attaok the enemy's
trenches.
The iuabilitv of the commissary
train to keep up with the advance led
to considerable suffering, and many of
the men were completely exhausted
when they were reoalled. Falling
from the ranks they were Btrung along
for a distance of about six miles, numbers returning to enmp in the military
ambulances, which were always cIobb
up to the linos. The work of the ambulances was especially worthy of mention. Yesterday's casualties on the
American side number 21, all of whom
are more or less seriously wounded
Hong Kong, March 20.��� A corre
spoudent of the Associated Press at
Manila writes: An army has seldom
operated under harder conditions
than have been encountered by llio
American "flying brigade." The
country the American troops have traversed is iutersecled with lagoons nnd
narrow and unfordable rivers, and
bamboos stand so thick thut Iho enemy cannot be seen a hundred feet distant. During tne charges, the Americans were ignorant ns to whether thoy
were nt tacking a hundred or a thou
sand rebels, which amazes the foreign
observers. The Filipinos were uniix
pectedly fierce at Cainta. Had it not,
been for the fact tbat the Amiricin
line wus thin, the enfilading fire of
the rebels would have slaughtered
many of our men. One of the prison
ers captured by the Americans snys
the Filipinos leaders boast that they
can continue tho war for years, depending upon the American forces being weakened daily by the twenty
men killed, wounded or invalided.
Seme of the high ollicials hero think
that 10,1100 reinforcements nre heeded,
as the troops  now   on    the  island   ure
hardly more than is required to maintain a line aroui.il Manila and police
tbe city. Considerable rain has fallen already and il seems that the season for rains is beginning prematurely. It is possible tbat wheu the
steady rain? begin, our troops will
hnvo to be withdrawn to permanent
haracks, which may enable the rebels
to return to their old positions, The
Americans have refrained from destroying tbo buildings in the country
swept by General Wheaton's troops. A
sentry has been stationed before every
store at Pasig, but (he soldiers are
bringing in loads of loot from the
dwelling houses.
