OVER 0* N* P. LINE
The Dominion Government Has Graated
tho Eequest, Notwithstanding the
Objections of the 0. P. E.
When the Kootenay Valley Railway
applied to tho Minister of Railways ut
Ottawa for milling privileges over the
Crow's Nest Pass lino some weeks ago
tho C. P. R. opposed the request and
considerable interest wus evinced in
the mutter. The Miuer learned last
night through a source that is thoroughly reliable and trustworthy
that the Government had grunted tin
request of the Kootenay Valley Company. This moans that* the road now
being conslvucted will connect witl
lhe ('row's Nest Puss line ahtv���, livi
mites north of Creston.
This will have au important effeo
on the work of the contractors cngng-
ed on the new road. It will come ai
a boon to Mavnard Cowan, well knowi
iu Nelson as it turns the northerly
end of his work from a comparative!-,
poor pieoe   into  the heaviest kind nl

90,000 yards of rock.

Globe prints a number of iuterviows
with loading citizens as to how tho
Dominion Government should spend,
thu if4,00l), 01)0 surplus which has been
announced by the various Ministers.
The majority of those who disouss
the question of the surplus say it
should be spent on improving transporting facilities, thus conducting
most to the permanent advantage of
tho country. D. R. Wilkie, manager
of the Imperial Bank, said he would
not upprove any use of it othor than to
further reduce the preferential tariff
in favor of Great Britain.
Lieut-Col. Davidson thought Canada
should devote a large portion of tin
surplus to maintaining national defences. Lieutenant-Col. Denison said
buy arms, buy arms. G. A. Rcid.
president of the Onturio Society ol
Atrists, would use it to build a national art museum. E. P Clarke, M

The Critic Points Out the Advautag es
We Have to Offer.
In a vory readable aritole in "Canada for Holidays" in a recent number of The Critic, London, the fol
lowing of local interest appears:
Oue of mv friends who last year travelled widely in Canada is   extremely
enthnsiatio on its possibilities as a holiday resort; and several others warmly
confirm   his   eulogies.    No   inoro   en*
joyable summer   ont ing.   they   agree,
was ever planed than a Canadian trip,
including   of  course,    a visit   to   the
wonderful lako,   river   and   mountain
scenery   of    British   Columbia.    Int'
railway journey across Canada is made
under the most   luxurious   conditions.
At  espociallv  interesting  portions ot
the route,   observation cars nre attached to the train and these   may be used
bv passengors  without   extra   charge.
Hotel   accommodation   is   better   and
cheaper   than   that    of   tho   English
provinces.    To    the   sportsman, with
rod or   gun,    British   Columbia is   an
earthly paradise.    He   mny   go whore
be likes and have sport free such as is
possible for only Iho wealthiest in Eu-
rope.     Wherever he goes, ho will find
the   people   not     merely willing   but
anxious   to  facilitate   his    pleasure,
either on flood or field.
Ladies need have no misgiving about
visiting    British    Columbia.    Unless
they -wander far off the main lines  ot
travel, they will find themselves quite
as -well-cared for as if touring  among,
say,   the  Scottish   Highlands.    Right
in the centre of the great mining   district   of British     Columbia    lie   tne
Kooteuay   and   Columbia Lakes,    ou
these magniciieut   waterways there  is
now a fleet, of steamers   owned by   the
Canadian Pacific   Railwav   Company,
unexcelled    for  safety,    comfort  and)
cuisine  by    anv   lake service   in the

sides lie vast glaciers from which   torrents, forming    innumerable    waterfalls, rush headlong   to   the  lakes beneath,   "lookiug   in Iho  distance-

THE POPE ON DREYFUS
Paris, March Ki. ���The Figaro pub
slies a report of an interview with lln
Popo bail by its corrcsondeut in Ronn
iu which His Holiness expressed Iiii-
astonishment at tho passions which
had been aroused in Franco over tin
Dreyfus question, adding that it was
perfectly trim that France hud always been at the head of civilization
or barbarism. The Pope depreciated
the attempt to transform tho affair into a war of race or religion, declaring
that now that the mutter bus been relegated to the highest court of the republic, tho decisiion of that tribunal
should be awaited with tranquility.

the famous French military prisoner,

for
Hot Springs, Ark., March 10.���Five
lives wero lost hero at 6 o'clook this
evening in a factional tight, over the
coming mayoralty electiou. Tbo dead
are: I
THOMAS TOLER, Chief of   Police  '
J. B. HART, City Detective.
THOMAS F.   COSLEE, Police Ser-
geaut.
JOHN WILLIAMS,   sou   of  Sheriff
Williams.
I    LOUIS   HINDLEY,     driver    of   a
| brewery wegou.
Tho niJooii.Js grew out ot tho mayoralty campaign   under way   here.    The
sheriff was a warm   supporter  of   the
regular   Democratic   nominee     while
Toler, Hart aud Coslee   wore  supporting  an   opposition   candidate.    Early
in the afternoon shots wero exchanged
between Sheriff  Williams and his son
John on one side and   Sergeant Coslee
on the other, but no one was   injured.
After this both parties  determined   to
have it out.   Toler,   Hart  aud  Coslee
were walkiug south ou Contral aveuui
at about half past 5 o'clock  when they
were met by Sheriff Williams and   his
two sons, John   and   Coffey,   and   Ed
Spears.    No one cau tell who fired the
first shot, but in a moment there  wns
a general fusilade, iu  which  forty  or
fifty shots were  exchanged.    When   it
was   over   Toler,   Hart,    Coslee  and
Hinkley, a non-combatant, were dead,
and Williams was   mortally wounded.
The  Mayor   immediately   after  the
shooting    appointed   Judge    Balding
chief   of   police.     Leputies   were   at
once sworn iu aud all saloons were ordered closed.    No   further   trouble   is
anticipated.
Ohristiania, March   III.���Sixty Leftist members of the Storthing, the Legislative Assembly of Norway, havo declined an invitation   to dine with   the
Swedish Crown Prince tiutaf, who   is
acting us Regent of Sweden and   Norway during the nlisenco of King Oscar,
who   is   in Southern   France, seeking
to recuperate his   health.    The refusal
of tho Norwegian   Legislature   to   ao-
cept  the   hospitality of the Regent  is
doubly significant   ns   emphazing  the
resentment provnl-*>d   in Norway by  a
recent snyiug of fUO Crowu  Prince  lu
a public meeting at Stockholm that he
would not   object to lead  the  Swedes
against the headstrong Norwegians  in
a resort   to arms to   settle  the qnarrel
between the two countries, and as  the
most striking indication of   open   enmity   to   Sweden   which has been  in
Cbristinia of late.    A few nights ago,
while tho Crown Prince   was   returning from tho   military   club iu Ohristiania, ho mot a crowd ot people  who
hooted   him   ��� nd   pelted    him    with
snowballs.    The     Norwegian    papers
condemned the demonstration, describing it ns in any   event   a   purely personal incident,    But the refusal of the
members   of   the   Storthing   to    dine
with the Regent   bus   wider  bearings
nnd is in tho nature of a political protest against the continuance of the union with Sweden.    In spite uf the   action of the Storthing,   last  winter, in
legalizing thn adoption of tbe separate
Norwegian flag, an overwhelming majority of the people of Norway bitterly
opposed the existing regime.   Of late
in both Norway aim Sweden ihuro has
been an ominous   iucrease of military
and   naval    farces, with   clearly  one
object in view���to support,if necessary
by arms,   all claims   which may  lead
to an  entiro   separation   of   tbe   two
countries.
Tho opposition to the continuance
of tho union is stronger in Norway
than in Sweden, but even Swedes
contend that the existing union which
rests upon the Riksakt, or great charter, declaring an irrevocable union
without prejudice to the separate government constitution and laws of each
country, cannot be continued without
modifications of a radical character.
Norway's political grievance is that
sho is deprived of her just share in tho
common government but the principal grievances are of commercial origin and provoked by the foreign trade
interests of the two countries. Their
commercial policies are diametrically
opposed, Sweden having adopted protectionism and Norway free trade.

HENRIC IBSEN'S DOLL'S HOUSE.
Tho Play of tho Great Master Will Be
Here on Monday.
One of the most remarkable plays of
late years is Ibseu's "A Doll's
House" which will be givou here ou
Monday night. A Michigan paper thus
refers to it:
The current theatrical season has
been marked by the paucity of offerings, but it is worth something that
the few companies which have been
bore have been generally organizations
of merit. One of these is the Clara
Thropp company, which appeared
hero Saturday uight iu Ibsen's great
drama, "A Doll's House." Miss
Thropp is the only nrtiBt who ever
brought un Iliseu play into the upper
peninsula, but tho introduction which
sho gave the local thoatro goers to tho
leading work of the Norwegian dramatist was certainly a good one, and it
is worthy of note that the play was received by the audienco with intelligent appreciation,
The part of Dora, the doll wife.is one
whioh requires u peculiar variety of
talent. Of childish, sunny, mercurial
disposition, at Iho same time jealously
guarding a skeleton in tho closet, which
will out in Hpite of her,the part makes
heavy demands on tho aotreBS who
would port my it well. But either by
lovo for Ibsen, natural temperament,or
hard study, more likely by all three,
Miss Thropp is able to givo a finished,
and well thought, out personification
of Nora. Thero are several fine climaxes in the piece and she invariably
rose to them with powerful effeot.
Miss Thropp gives evidences of being
thoroughly conscieutious iu her work.

Wheu Mr. liny wont over ns his

It is an education to the average
American to live a short time iu England. He is quick to study the people, and soon learns to respect aud admire them. He returns to his own
country, not less an Americuu, but
with eyes opeu to his former insane
prejudices, and an enthusiastic friend
of the whole of his race, uot the
American portion of it ouly. In London he meets peoplo superior to his
own in all those quulities that make
for cosmopolitanism, and he discovers, much to his surprise and disappointment, that everything kuown ill
his own country originated there.
He losos his conooit, and comes back
a wiser and better man, To promote

SCIENCE  CLASHES.
Any of ua could say that it is desirable to have science classes established at the principal centres of
population of the Province, as Mr.
Holdich does iu a gouorul way in
tlie paper reoently rend at it meeting
ot the Canadian Mining Institute nnd
published in these columns yesterday.
Many of ns have been saying it for
several months past. But uono of us
have aaid it as forcefully or us intelli-
geutly us Mr. Holdich does. It is a
simple subject enough, but out of it
he mukos an interesting paper. Ho
argues convincingly that it ought to
be done, and shows how easily it mny
be done. Yet wc doubt if anything
will come of it.
Those who ure prepared to take the
part of teachers, or lecturers, cannot
afford to givo the time necessary without somo compensation, and to rely on
fees alone would bo to expect too much
from the pupils. To help the scheme
out it ia essential, as Mr. Holdich suggests, that the Provincial Government
should come to its aid, And that ia
exactly where the failurejwill be. The
Government will not come to its aid.
There is nothing in it for tho politicians ; it does not offer the brand of
patrouage out of which votes are made.
Nevertheless an effort should b*  mado

free milling ore have heen made recently, but so far the mineral development Iiiih not bean of snch a oharaoter
as to found conclusions, tio far ns extra growth mny be nll'ecled hy it. The
valley in which they aro situated is a
very beautiful one and said lo be fertile.
There is considerable excitement
in Oamp McKinney nml properties nre
changing hands, a number of owners
having made money out of tho deals.
Increased oonlidenee has been given
to tbe future of the camp by the sale
nf the Fouteuoy In which it. is understood the Dnnsnmii's are largely interested, The towusite of McKinney,
which has heen plotted, is being cleared up and owing to its thickly wooded
character tins is nn easy tusk, especially on account of the deep snow.
There is no bcoin nt Midway, hut its
prospects are very guud for its bono n-
ing a town. The situation is one nf
the most beautiful in Ihe Province and
ils geographical location very favorable. Here,as in nearly every place in
the Bouudary Country, progress is retarded by the lack of lumber for building, but as sawmills are being erected
il is expected that early in summer
Ibis want will he supplied.
In the next month traveling in
lhat district will be no easy task, as
the roads are breaking up, and their
(onilition is being made worse by reason of the great volume nf freight.
Hundreds of teams are on the way from
Bossburg and Marcus, nnd the" roads
will be all but liupnssalbe very shortly
Grading on the Oolumbla St Western
is steadily going on und it is anticipated that trains will be running into
Greenwood in July It is announced
too, that the 0. P. R. Telegraph Or.,
will have completed its telegraph line
in about two months when the difficulties of communication now com
plained of will bo obviated.
It is t-ery difficult to givo advice to
those contemplating going into the
Boundary Country. Mr. Gosnell says
there are certainly good opportunities
in some lines at Iho present time,
but. evou now employment is hard to
obtain, and by tbe time the railway
gots in the probabllitity is that business will bo overdone." Real progress
can not go ahead, of mining development and that is always slower than is
anticipated. There ih, however, no
doubt of the future, as the extent nnd
character of the ore deposits aie of the
most remarkable character.

is disgraceful that right in the heart
uf Iho City, on Iho best street, these

Why is it Unit Haker street is not

lhat pari of the town built op, Decent people shun it as they would a
pestilence hut good builidng lots are
get ting scarce and peoplo aro gradually building residence closer to this
sore spot, having been led to believe it
would bo removed. East Haker stroet,

many people both north and south nf
it hut how can women and innocent
children use it while   this double row
of houses is in full blast'-' Drunkenness and profanity and all kinds of
foul language are lo bo encountered in
broad daylight and murder has been
known thero nt night. The spring
building boom has already opened
among theBe houses, some being enlarged and others not previously used
being brought into service. Now why
should this be? Who are we afraid of?
Surely not the people themselves, tho
scum of the worst element in the
States. Aid. Hillyer said last yoar
that thoy must he moved. We look to
him nnd somo of the other holder spirits in the Council to get to work and

CHINAMEN ARE GOOD STUDENTS
Nelson Mongolians   Attend   a  School

There are great goings ou in Chinatown these days. Young Mongolians
are burning English, This bus various effects on the students, according
lo the peculiar idea which each has
to the proper method of studying.
Each night a numbo'i- of the younger
and more enterprising Chinamen attend a class that is being conducted in
the City hy a lady who has interested
herself iii extending her pnpils'
knowledge of the English language beyond "heap good" and a few other
phrases that make up the English vo
oabulary of somo of Nelson's Mongolians. The Chinese boys who are houso
servants have caused consternation
in some otherwise peaceful households
by their close attention to their studies. Before they were inoculated with
the educational germ they went quietly
to work, bur, now thoy roam around
the house, broom iu hand, and mutter, "f-o-x���fox; f-o-x���fox. " Occasionally thev will break out with "A-
E-I-O-U." and keep that up for a
couple of hours. They eertunly make
most persistent students aud -judging
by reports from various households
the progress being made is very en-
couraging, Yestorduy two oitizens
were referring to their Chinamen in
connection with the school and the
amusing way in which they spelled
words all day. A third man. (who
had overheard them) said " I'm much

Among tlm visitnrs in ilm (-ity at
preient in Ur. Perry K Doolittle, o(
Toronto, (int., who is en roate to
Southern Oullfointn, where be holds
large In teres ti In some Rold mini's.
Dr. Iioulitile snjoTi it lurge pruotioe

tiuii to that, hi�� Inventive Reuim has
nlacud liim in that uomfortable position where he oan Invest largely in
mining properties us lie is the inventor of tho Keif-acting huh bloyolo
brake that is now universally nseil in
the wheel liinuufaclure. In i-iinvirsii-
tion with u Miner reporter last even-
inn Dr. Doolittle said that British Oo-
luiubia oould expect to Bee a large
amount of Ontario capital Invested
here in tbo uonr future. "A few
years ago as you know" be said, "Toronto was the stamping ground for almost evory wild oat that was turned
loost on tbo credulous public, Olivine
of cheap slock hecanie epidemic nnd
Shares in any company floated were
eagerly bought up. Of course, iu almost overy caso all the money invested
wus loBt and this naturally gave ��
great Bet-hack to the capital that
would otherwise bave (steadily oome
this wny. Reaction Hot in and nearly
all investment ceased. Now, however,
another mining boom is on In Toronto
but it ia a healthy one. People have
ooutideuce in tho country, have past
mistakes to guide them into tin* right
path and only bona fide propositions
have uuy show on the Toronto Mining Exchange. The people Willi formerly bought five cent .shares, ex-
puoting Ihem to no to a dollar, now
buy dollar shares to hold them for dividends. Confidence has been restored
in the Ontario investors by the investments heie by such men as Good-
erhani, Blnekstock and (!ox nnd the
iNUocossful handling of the War Ragle
has done more than anything else to
turn Toronto money this way. The Lo
Roi and Curiboo-McKinney hnve also
attracted attention and made mon led
people regard mining us a business
and not as a speculation. The recent
successful flotation of the Payne will
do 0 great deal for the Slocan country.
Peoplo down EaBt regard it as one of
the best possible investments as may
be judged by the fact that tho stool-
was eagerly bought up at a price
away above par. As the doings of
this valuable mine will now romi
prominently before the public tbe Slocan country will receive advertising
thut its wealth entitles it to hut which
it has lacked in tbe past."
Dr. Doolittle will spend two or three
weeks iu and around Nelson before

Quicksilver is obtained from cinnu-
bur. British Columbia is fortunate
enough to possess this mineral among
its long list of valuable natural assets Mr. Colijnhoun. a mining engineer of Huvonas, contributes some
interesting particulars regarding it
to The Kamloops Sentinel:
Cinnabar was first found about four
years ago us float on tbo north side of
Kamloops Lake at Copper, but owing to tlie ingorance of the original
finder, the specimens lay around the
Savouas Hotel until un eutorprisiiig
and learned prospector identified the
ore which resulted in tho location of
the group of claims now owned by
tho Cinnabar Mining Co. The formation in which the cinnabar occurs in
this section of the country consists of
basaltic and ilnloniitic dykes traversed
by veins of quarto and calcite in
which the ore is fouud in some instance in a pure Btate, also finely disseminated through the gungue associated with pyrites und other foreign
elements. These dykes and deposits
have a general direction of N. N. W.
and S, ti. E., through what appears to
bo diabase porphyries, but it is impossible to detenuinue the true nature
owing to the Burface decomposition.
To the north of the company's properties Cinnabar is also found in altered
conglonioratos on the Hardy Mouutiin
nnd in fine grained granites on tho
Caledonia; to the east it is found in
tine scarlet spots, Associated with the
cinnabar we also fiud copper sulphide
aad    earbouatei and on  the Hardy
Mountain, as aforementioned, sulenide
of mercury which invariably carries
a gold und silver asssay. During my
trips iu the Kamloops district last
Summer I discovered u deposit of oiu-
unbar some IB miles south, proving tlm
southern extension of the belt, so that.
considering the Criss Crook deposits
to the north we can state that the belt
has heen traced foi 30 miles. Not-
withstanding the fact of the existence
of l*u;'.* bodiis of medium furnace ore
0.oil percent, lo two percent, and
over, exposed by the development of
the Ciiinnhnr Minimi: Company and
other deposits of high grade oro hitherto untouched, they have not made u
success. It seems a pity that through
the fault, ignorance und gross mis
liiauageuient of the concern the whole
distirct should ha held back in its
progress. About 15(1,000 bus been
thrown away in work nnd the erection of u (irau/.a furnace, tramways,
elo , and has only produced IS3N flunks
of ijiiiiksilver; of this nniount Ul wns
produced by moans of enst iron retorts
und seven flusks by the Clrautsa fur-
uuco.

Mr. Hedloy, Superintendent of the
Hall Mines, has found it necessary to
write The Monetary Times, Toronto,
lo correct some misrepresentations
that thero recently bad boon circulated
with reipeot to the capacity of tho
seiultei*. An extract will hu interesting; We huve two blast furnaces,
ouo with a capacity for copper of
about 150 tons. This iB occasionally
used foi lead smelt i ig, and on that
material its oupuoity cun only be fig
uii'd tor hot-ween HO and 110 touB per
day. Our lnrge furnace, however,
with nn area ut the foyers of 144
inches by 44 inohes, has a capacity
of 300 tons per day, if charge is of a
suitable diameter Its normal capacity might be slated ut about 280 Inns.
but wo have actually smelted in this
furiiui'o iu 24 hours 810 tons of ore and
flux, in addition to tho slag recharged
und coke. While on the subject, I
feel that a few items of general interest
will not OOllie amiss, and wonld liko
to briefly review the praotice at this
smelter.
First, then, ore from the Silver King
Mine, owned by this oompany, at
prosont curries from 2 to 2.5 per cent,
copper with from 1(1 to 20 ounces of silver and traces of gold. This is the
biiRis of our smelting operations, and
we trent in this copper furnace us
well, any ores obtainable bearing copper, silver or gold, without loud,
no matter Whet the description As yet
tho supply of this custom material is
extremely small, And onr grant lnck
is doppei ��� two per cent, copper being
about the limit for economical con*
oentration of the precious metals The
product of this first treatment is t-'cn-
rally a matte, carrying 45 to "id per
rent, copper If, through excess of
sulphides in the chnrgu. the matte car
ries less than 45 per cent copper, it is
our custom to roust and recharge lo
produce ill excess of 45 per cent. For
further concent rut ion of values, we require to crush and roust this matte,
uud smelt it in a roverherntory furnace, producing a white metal
oarrying 76 per cent, copper. This
iignin is crushed, roasted and smelted
in another refining furnace, the pro*
duct of which is ladlod ns IIH per
cent, copper, with silver and gold values, varying, according to the material treafod, from 300 to 600 ounces sii
ver per ton, and five to 30 ounces ot
gold. We ship this in anode form,
ready for the electrolytic separation of
copper from precious nietiils and im
purities.
