Several Witnesses Examined
Yesterday.
NOTHING     STARTLING
Evidence Qoes to Show That the steamer
Was Quite Seaworthy at the Time
of the Aooident.
The principal inquiry which commenced yeslerdiiv into the cause of the
disaster to the Steamer Ainswortll on
the 20th of November lost elided little that has not already been told, ami
authiii)- startling was made public
The evidence was taken before Captain
Jumes Gaudin of Victoria nnd S. M.
Brydges recorded the evidence verbatim. Tbe sitting commenced at 10
a. in. and lasted until noon when all
the witnesses, exoept Capt. Lane, had
been examined. The enquiry adjourned until Monday at 3 p. in. to take the
captain's evidenoe. There were no
legal representatives present.
Joe Johnson was the first witness
called. He testified tbat he was an
engineer in tbe employ of the O. P. K.
but two years ago served as unigueer
on the Ainswortll. Asked as to the
state of the hull, he said tbat two years
ago it showed no signs of weakness.
He worked on the boat for five months.
The Ainswortll was then trading between Nelson and Kaslo. During that
time she encountered heavy weather
several times and always behaved well.
In no storm did she show any sign ot
weakness. The engine ta-ft in gMB
ooudition and the general equipment
all right. Witness was not on the
Ainsworth at the time of the accident.
Edward J. Matthews next testified.
He was manager of the Ainswortll, a
position he occupied since Maroh 1898.
The boat had been inspected in July
or August, 1898. At tbat time she
was in general good condition and bad
a full complement of appliances. The
only thing that the inspector recommended was to have a section of the
fire holes- replaced. This, be understood, had been done by the captain.
He did not have the certificate of inspection as it went down with the
ship at tbe time ot tbe accident. She
bad a registered tonnage of 1114 tons
net, including passengers. She could
carry 46 tons of dead weight. Ou her
last trip the Ainsworth had 7,900
pounds of freight and six cords of wood.
Since his company purchased tbe
steamer $2,500 had been spent in her
general equipment. Mr. Matthews
said sbe was put in tbe best possible
condition. He related tbe incidents attending tbe receipt of tbe news if the
disaster by him and the steps he took
to provide for the orew.
John Campbell was tben called. He
slated that hs was a master mariner
and knew tbe steamer iu question. He
was part owner for about five years.
He know how she was built und judged
ber thoroughly seaworthy. He disposed of his interest in ber last March
and at that time sbe was seaworthy,
both as regards tbe hull and machinery. While he was part owner the
Ainsworth frequently carried 40 tons
of freight. On one occasion 20,000 feet
of lumber was carried. That did not
include the fuel. She was equipped
with everything that the law required,
Captain John Paterson, sworn, said
that he was also interested in the
boat for five years. He was manager
of the company that owned the boat.
He corroborated the evidence of the
proceeding witness and said that the
Ainsworth rode well in severe storms,
lu reply to Mr. Matthews he said that
he considered there was no safer bout
on the lake than the Ainsworth ; ber
planking was extra heavy and consequently sho was less "cruuky" than
any boat of her class running into
Nelson. "I consider that she was perfectly safe to encounter any weather''
���aid tbe witness.
W.J. Kane, another master mariner,
gave evidence along the same line as
the three proceeding witnesses. He
was, however, on tbe boat at the time
of the iiooident in the capacity of en-
igneer, having joined her at Pilot
Bay. "She was lying at Pilot Bay.
We took her from Pilot Bay to Nelson
on Monday, 28th of November. We
left Nelson on the afternoon and wooded up twioe going up the river. We
reached Pilot Bay abont 6:80 p. in.,
"topped there about 15 minutes and
then left. About 7:30 we struck the
���quail from the sonth. The first intimation of any danger that I row was
a little water in tbe fire hole. I informed the captain of it through tbe
Speaking tube, He came down, I went
forward, and he set some of the deck
hands to throwing overboard a few cords
oi wood. I then went to the engine
room and then the boat gave three
rolls and laid over on her side. I went
���� deck and found tbat the  passengers
i wero being provided with life pr-serv-
era uud I believe that the big life bout
��� had been launched. I found this to be
| true und ulso ascertained that thore
was room for a,couple more in tho
boat after the captain, the purser and
.several others had gotten into it.
There was a rush of a dozen Italians
to (ill the two places and the bout was
consequently swamped. She was
righted liy tho enptain and a man
named Dounallv, bailed ber out, and
ugnin loaded. As 1 bad motohes, with
which a firo could br lit on shore, I
accompanied the first boat. After
lauding and lighting a fire the Captain, Donnelly and myself stalled buck
to the wreck as we were the only
ones who would volunteer, and we
brought ashore another load, after au
intorviil of, perhaps two hours. At this
time the wreak was in sight and we
could talk to thoso ou board. We informed them that wo would be out as
soon as we could. We took off seven
the second timo and made another
trip, taking off eight more. We got
tho last boat to the beach about 11 :80.
The wreck drifted ashore."
Capt. Gaudin asked the witness several questions but nothing new was
elioted except that the first time the
bout was put into the water it capsi/.-
od and a number of those who were in
it did not reach the ship again. There
were two life boats, on the Ainsworth,
each of whioh should carry 20 passengers. There were 18 possengers and
15 orew aboard the Ainsworth.
R. J. Long, who was a passenger on
the boat, next testified. He had some
freight to put on here; the captain at
first oomplained that he had enough al
ready but he finally took it. Passing
on to the moment of alarm the witness said that the boat that lett the
wreck sank nnd about four people were
drowned. Witness endeavored to get
in the other bout whioh was released
with difficulty. He got ashore in the
second boat. He did not consider the
first wns safe. The one that landed
him was a metallic boat. He saw the
Italians rush to the first bo-it launch -
od. The members of the crew exoept
Captain Lauo, were very auxious to
get ashore. He thought that if the
orew bad not taken to the boats there
would have been no danger. As fur
us witness knew there was no licensed
engineer on the Ainsworth. He un
derstood that they could not keep steam
up and the syphons going at the same
time.
John Brett, who was formerly fire
man on tho International,said he was a
member of the Ainswortb's en w a-
far ns Pilot Bnv al. the time of ..A *.t ���
oident. He said that there was nothing uunsual betv een Nelson and Pilol
Hay. He left the Ainsworth at Pilol
Bay i ecause they oould not keep up
steam,evidently on account of tbe woo.i
being green. That was -the only rea
fo-j for hiB action as ho was jealous of
his professional reputation.
John Donnelly was watchman on the
Ainsworth. His evidence corroborated
the other statements in all the essen
tial points. Henry Tyo, deck hand,
was the next witness. On the way to
Pilot Bay water oome into the boat
frequently and had to be syphoned out
But she did not leak more than any
ordinary wooden boat after her olas
would. In other points ' his ovideno *
was the same as   that   given above.
George Franklin and Captain Sam
nel Lovntt were next oalled. There
was nothing to the former's evidence.
Capt. Lovatt built the Ainsworth
uud his evidence went to show that
she was, in his opinion, as strongly
Imilt and seaworthy as any vessel in
her class. She was built in the spring
of 1892. She had met with a mishap
about a year ago at Kaslo while she
was under way. He did not know the
cause or the effect, but she was beached
us the time.
Capt. Campbell, recalled, said that
the Kaslo mishap occurred through tbe
fact that the syphons were out of or-
dor, and the casting of the main pump
t-rokeu. She was benched to make the
necessary repairs. Water came in at
that time, through one of the syphon
1 onrds being disconnected.
This concluded the hearing of evidence and an adjournment was made
until Monday at 2 p. m.

TO BE ABANDONED?
Chinese Excited at
Movement-
Italy's
PARTITION BY POWERS
It is Said That the Time Hat Arrived for
China to be   Divided bj   the
Greater Powers-
Pekin, Maroh 8.���The demand of the
Italian Government upon the Government of China for a lease of Sun Muu
Bay as u colonization and naval base
on the same conditions us those under
which Germany holds Kiao Ohou
Bay, including the demand upon the
part of Italy for the concession of three
Islands off the const of Che Kiang with
the right to ooustrnct a railroad from
Sau Mun Bay to Po Yang Lake and
preferential raining and railroad rights
within the sphere of influence covering the southern two-thirds of Che
Kiang Province, has caused great excitement here, not only among tbe
Chinese, but also among the diplomats. The Chinese are firmly convinced thot Great Britain is chiefly responsible for the Italian demand aud
thai it as made in order to emphasize
Great Britain's displeasure at the
turn which the northern railroad
question has taken. They declare, in
proof of this assertion, thnt Great
Britain has determined upon a sphere
of notion and the abandonment of the
"open door" policy. The diplorauts
openly say that the new development
is tbe beginning of a policy of partition upon the part of the powers.
The represenstive nf a great power,
during a conversation, is said to have
suggested that the moment had now
arrived for international control of
Chinn and, it was added, that if tbe
polioy of the spheres of influence
should be really inaugurated, the
United States would be expeoted to
have a say in the matter, and further
said that there were indications tbat
America would be likely to prefer the
Province of Chill.
REPORT CONFIRMED.
Rome, Maroh 8.���In the Chamber of
Deputies today Admiral de Cauevaro,
Minister of Foreign Affairs, replying

QUITE FRENCHY.
| oring judgment finds that Col. Pic-
quart and M. Lubleis, a lawyer, should
, be tried by a civil court for the ul-
leged forgery with whiL-h they aro
charged, uud for using the forgery and

the alleged illegality   of   coninuinical-
I ing to M. Lebleis War Olliee documents was not connected with Ihe
above charge and tbat therefore the
court martini retains its -jurisdiction.

Tbe charge of forgery lining punishable with severer penalties than the
other offences Imputed, will form the
first subject of investigation.

Washington, March 3.���Crowded gnl-
leriea looked down upon the struggling
members of the House today as the
closing scenes of the lust legislative
days of this Congress were being
enacted. Step by step the leaders in
charge of the appropriation bills pushed them through the final stnges and
during evory lull in the consideration
of conference reports, members clamored for recognition for belated billi,
in the vain hope of rescuing them from
death on the calendar. At times the
House was like bedlam. Pound as the
Speaker would with his gavel, it was
almost impossible to preserve order
aud to the cnsunl visitor in the mil
ery, the proceedings on the floor must
have been about as intelligible as an
oxoiting day iu the wheut pit would

'"Mr. Kipling continuos to improve.
He is out of dangei. We cannot say

SIR CHARLES CRITICISES.
Ottawa, Ont., March 8 ���Sir Charles
Tupper in au interview todny denounced Minister Hardy's Senate reform resolution us an outrage, and
characterizes it ns an attempt to disrupt Confederation. He lays great

The Labrador Ran on a Rock
in the Atlantic.
LIFE   BOATS   MANNED
But Another Steamer Hovo  in  Sifht
Time to Reioue Everybody���A
Dozen Prisoners-
Glasgow, Maroh S. ���The Glasgow
Citizen says that the Lubrudor had a
summer-like passage most of the wny
over and made good running, but as
she noured this side the cuptain and
officers were unable to take the sights
for three days owiug to the fog. Consequently, the only guide to the position of the ship was thut given by
dend reckoning, which, by means of
the currents, wus untrustworthy. The
captain had been cu deck since 2 p. ni.
Tuesday wheu tbo ship struck. The
second officer wns on the sick list and
tbe third offloer hud taken tbe watch
with the captain. Tbe passengers
who were in their berths, were awak-
oued by a crash uud rushed ou deck.
Tbe Labrador bad run well np on a
rock and was filling rapidly. The ship
was rocking with tho heavy seas
which made the launching of tbe boats
difficult. The coolor headed of the
passougers calmed the women and
the crow did their duty with the most
praiseworthy discipline. When the
first bout was ready the women and
children were lowered into it with
ropes. While the other boats were be-
iug lillod the Viking hove in sight and
took on board the passengers and
crew, except those in one boat which
made its wnv to the Skerry River
Lighthouse. This boat contained 13
passengers who remain prisoners at
the lighthcusu, as tho wind freshened
aud they were unable to return to the
ship. Tbe ship had been going
slowly, but just before the acoident
the captain signalled the engines to go
ahead at full speed, believing that the
course was clear.
PROMOTION   ALL ROUND.
The United States   Rewards its Brave
Soldiers and Sailors.
Washington, March 8.���The President's nomination of Richmond Pearson Hobson to be advanoed ten numbers from No 1 on the list of assistant
naval constructors is said by naval
officers to coustitute the greatest material promotion, as a recognition of
gallantry, in the history of the naval
service. It will make Hobson a captain at the age of 30. His advancement amounts to 260 numbers in the
line of tbe navy, which is remarkable
in comparison with the single number
secured by Admirul Dewey, the eight
numbers by Admiral Sampson, and
from three to five each secured by
other officers during the war with
Spain.
President McKinley sent to the Senate nominations of Rear Admiral
George Dewey lo be Admiral of the
Navy under the act approved March 3,
18(11), and Brigadier General El well W.
Otis to be Major-General by brevet, to
rank from February 4, 1899, for mili
tai-y skill and most distinguished services in the Philippine Islands.
NEW TAX BILL.
Ontario's Meaauro Will Reduce the
Revenue of Corporations.
Toronto, Out., Maroh 8.���One effect
of the Provincial Government's new
tax bill will be cut down tho income
derivable by corporations. Municipalities are forbidden to advance assessment beyond figures ruling on Febru-
ury 1. Assessment Commissioner Fleming of Toronto wus mediating a grand
coup which would have brought in
abont |160,000 annually nnd Toronto's
example would have been followed, no
doubt, throughout the Province. This
has been stopped, corporations are
therefore on the whole better off than
they havo been and are not inolined to
grumblo over the uew taxation.
VERY BIG MONTH.

Toronto, March 8.���The month of
February was a record breaker in exports from this city, which reached almost $1,000,000 aud are said to be the
heaviest iu the history of the custom
house In fact, tbey came within
120,000 of doubling the figures of Feb-
ruury of last year.
FALLIERES   ELECTED.
Montreal, March 8.���The Highland
Cadets of this city have accepted un
invitaitou to go to Now York for a

THE BOUNDAHY DISPUTE.
It is something to the credit of the
Anglo-American Commisionern that
they have kept their own oounsol so
-well that the newspapers are still
speculating as to the real cause of tho
suspension of negotiations. This would
not be surprising in British Commissioners, in whom long tradition would
inspire reticence ; but nt Washington
the belief has prevailed thnt no secret
of diplomacy is too sacred for the publio touch. In dealing with international affairs the first aot of the average
American statesman is to reveal all he
knows. They have done better this time;
so extremely well, indeed, that the
doings of the Commission have beeu
little better than guesswork from the
beginning,
It is commonly supposed that the
snag on which they struck and stuck
was the Alaskan boundary. Perhnps
conjecture is right; but when we remember the attitude of the American
Government and people on the question of the Venezuelan boundary, this
is difficult to believe. On that occasion the United States constituted itself the champion of arbitration, and
so desperately in earnest did it profess
to be that it was willing to go to war
with Great Britain to enforce the
prinoiple or to save it from being
violated. If arbitration was so vital in
that case, it would be curious to know
what peculiar or extr aordinary phase
has developed in connection with the
Alaskan boundary to demand a different procedure in its ense.
The question is one of interpretation.
There is no disputing of facts ; whatever is clear is admitted on both sides.
What is not clear is tbe meaning of
the Treaty of 1825, which was supposed to establish the respective rights
of Russia and Great Britain. The
United States cannot escape from this
Treaty, nor is it seeking to do so. It
merely places a construction on the
crucial clause different from that given
to it by Great Britain. The dividing
line, the Treaty says, shall run fro m
tho southern extremity of Prince ot
Wales Island north along tbe Portland
Channel. A better knowledge of the
geography of the region thau prevailed
in those days makes it quite clear that
to get to Portland Channel the iine
would require to run south and east. It
is evident, therefore, that the Commissioners who negotiated the treaty confused names and localities. International usage requires that in case of
misunderstanding or misconception,
the olause should be interpreted in the
light of the context, and consistently
with the general aim and intention of
the Treaty. Here at one? is the necessity for arbitration. An impartiol tribunal is the safest guide to a just interpretation. Another report is that the
United States broke away on the question of an umpire, objecting to a European and insisting on some potentate
belonging to the American continent. In view of Mr. Rhodes' opinion, as expressed in a cable published
in yesterday's Miner, that outside of
the United States and Canada all other
Governments on the continent are but
semi-civilized, tho British Commissioners will be excused if they preferred an umpire educated under the
advantages of ciivlization.
nice would be saving its four thousand
dollars u mile. But curiously enough,
on the day following tbo one made rein rkuble by this argument, the Finance Minister's colleague, the Attor-
nov-Geiieral, introduced a Bill to revive the subsidy and to empower the
Government to enter into a contract
with any other Oompnny on any forms
the Government might nppove,   This
Bill went through. We are left to
wonder if the Finunoo Minister was
ignorant of his colleague's intention,
or whether he wns employing an argument which he knew to be misleading.
However, the subsidy was revived,
nnd the Government wero left with a
free hand to dispose of it as they
pleased. This Rossland aldermau
says: "There is a likelihood that if
tbo finances of the Province oan be nr-
rnngod, und no private pnrties build
the road, next session would see a
Government monsure introduced to
build tho hue ns a Government enterprise, to be run as n Government
road." Preparations aro being made
to arrange the finances, as the Minister in authorized to negotiate a loan
of two or three millions, pnrt of which
may be devoted to railways. The
money being thus provided, it will be
an easy mattor'to insure that no private company be given the contract,
and tho way will tben bo left clear to
the inauguration of Mr. Martin's
cherished policy of Govfll-nment railways.
Do the people of British Columbia
desire to see the Province enter the
field as a railway owner and operator? For Federal and Imperial reasons Canada built the Intercolonial,
and a pretty penny it has cost her.
The Canadian people are not partial
to the polloy, aud the Intercolonial
experience has not been oaloulated to
reconoile them to it. They do not believe in tbe prinoiple. If a Government may construct and operate railways, it may establish and construct
hotels und stores, or may engage in
mining. It would be trespassing on
the preserve of private enterprise, and
Governments are not expected to do
this excepting where circumstnnces
render it necessary. There is every
prospect, besides, that our local politics will become oorrupt enough during tho next few years, without our
going to the cost of a railway to in-
roase the opportuniites for it.
PIANOS
AT
Here would seem to be e splendid
opportunity to avoid exciting ourselves over nothing. A gentleman
just returned to Victoria from the
Okunugan country reports to The
Globe of that City : "Corbin and the
O. P. R have come to terms. You
will see tin C. P. R. using the Kettle
River line into Midway with several
bruuobes to the north and ono down
into the Washington State mining
dintriot of Republic. People laugh
at me when I tell them that the C.
P. R. aud Corbin have settled their
difficulties, but you will find that I am
right and that the C. P. R. will
cither own the line or get control of
it. What is more, the C. P. R. will
get into Spokane us well. Now yon
watch and see." The requirement is
not difficult.    We shall watch and see.
A NEW GOVERNMENT POLICY.
One of Rosslnnd's aldermen accompanied the Mayor of that City on that
highwayman's mission to the Capital.
He, too, waH interviewed on his return, and from his story as related in
The Miner we get a hint of a new
Government policy that will cause
many of us to pause to take breath. It
is nothing less than the practical adoption of the principle of Provincial construction, ownership, and operation of
railways.
When the Finance Minister was defending the repeal of the subsidy to
the Viotoria, Vancouver, and Eastern
Railwity Company, and the repudiation of their contract with the British
Columbia Government, he laid special stress on the fact  that  the   Prov-
The Miner offers sincere congratulations to its namesake of Rossland on
tho announcement thnt in a few days
it will begin the setting of its type by
machinery. The approaching occasion
sends it off into a reminiscent mood,
iu which it speaks most gratefully and
appreciatively of the success which has
attended its publication. The public
of Rossland deserve praise. They are
a pushing, energetic people, out early
in the mornings, busy all day. and
keenly -alive to the importance of keeping themselves prominently to the
front. They know the value of a live
newspaper, and the value of using it,
with the result that Tbe Miner is
loaded up with seventeen or eighteen
columns of advertising. A town of
that kind is bound to prosper, and
its newspapers will prosper with it.

Explains the Charges Made
by Dr. Forin.
THE CASES IN QUESTION
Saja That Both Ohief of Polico  MoKin-
mni and Mrs. Goodwin are
Mistaken.
Dr   Hall   has  fired mother   k<>>>   '"
the hospital controversy nnd   has   further replied to the   oliurgeu   inn.In   by
Dr. Forin, uh follows:
Kilitor of Tho Miner:
Sir:���The cloud hns burst, the sky
is clear, und we are ull in the light,
Before replying to Dr. Forin'li letter of tho 1st instant, I wish to State
tn the publio, thut hud tho admitting
of putieuts into the hospital been dealt
with iu the same general way as the
other things in "Oivis's" letter, I
should not have puid nny attention to
it but wheu the main shot wns fired at
uie, I felt justified in clearing myself
ot fnlse chai'K��H.
Professional etiquette forbids uuy
disoussiou, between fellow practitioners, of this nntnra nnd now that I
know who my opponent is, I" will re-
fr.iin from oriticising Dr. Forin's letter, nnd prooeed to prove thnt my
statements were correct,whioh I promised to do as soon us "Uivis" came out
nnd showed himself to the publio.
Thore is just one feature, however, I
wish to bring to notioe, thnt is, Dr.
Forin pulled in his $50 before writing
over bis signature.
Onse 1���Mr. Cooper, who died on
April 29, 1898, at Mr. Teetzel's drug
store, Alex McKinnon, the only witness
Dr. Forin has on the oase, states
thnt the night before the 29th of April
he oalled nt my residence, asked me to
go and see Mr. Cooper, and that I refused. The facts are as follows: The
night of the 29th, I wns not at home
nny part of the night, and never saw
Alex McKinnon. I was engaged professionally at David Curtis's who waa
thru living in A. MncDonald & Co. 's,
Mo. k. I remained there all night.
This I oan prove by Alexander Poole,
who is now in Nanaimo; by David
Curtis, who is at present in Victoria,
aud by Dr. Hawkey of this oity. It
is true that Alex McKinnon called at
my house on that night, but he was
informed by Mr. Poole that I was not
at home, and he wus directed to Dr.
Hnwkey, who wns then my partner
He saw Dr. Hawkey and said he want
ed to get Mr. Cooper in the hospital;
but as Dr. Hawkey had no authority
to admit him, he did not respond. Dr.
Hawkey yesterday corroborated tbis
statement; the office books also show
an entry debiting Mr. Curtis for services for tbat same date; Mr. McEiu
nou, also, yesterday moruing would not
deny this before witnesses, when the
matter was brought to his memory
and he was showed the entry in the
hook.
Case 2.���Tbe man at the Yictoria
Hotel; I was called to see a mnn
named Hazelwood at the Viotoria Ho
tel in December, 1897. On entering
the room the odor was something horrible. I enquired from the patient
how long he had been there. He re
plied, "two weeks." I remarked:
"Surely you have not been here nil
tbat time aud not had medical attendance" "No," he said: "Dr Forin
has been attending me, but has not
called to see me for four or five dnys.
I sent a person for him on two occa
sions, but he was not at his office;
the message was lelt, but tbe doctor
did not come." I asked the patient if
he had discharged Dr. Forin. He answered, "No." I then asked if Dr.
Forin had said he was not coming any
more, and he again replied, "No,"
"Well, you are still Dr. Form's pa
tient, and I cannot take you,'' I said
as 1 left the room (and it was as bad
ns uny dissecting room thnt I ever was
in). The man had not been out of
bed for three or four days, and had
not received uny attention, so one will
not have to draw on his imagination
very much to judge the state of affairs.
Mrs Goodwin met me at the door auri
aski d if the mau could not be taken
lo the hospital, and the only reply I
pa e her was: "I will see whnt can
1 e done.'' I did not say I could not
take him because he wns going to die.
Notwithstanding the fact that Mrs.
Goodwin is a very amiable aud intellectual ludy, I huve uot any doubt tbo
publio will give me credit for having
ns good a memory as she. I went
downstairs and saw Mr. Goodwin,
the proprietor, aud I told him I could
uot|jtake Mr. Hazelwood, as he wus a
patient of Dr. Forin's; furthermore, it
waa not fair to the patient, in his orit
ical condition, to change his physician, as what little chance there was
for the man's recovery would be sacrificed by so doing. The physician in
attendance was the proper person to
carry out the treatment, and that
he had better Bend for Dr. Forin. I
can prove hy Mr. Rutherford, by
James McDonald and others, taking
Dr. Forin's own diagnosis, that in
this instanoe the the disease came under that, class which the hospital rules
refuse admittance, therefore I did not
refuse the man becuues I thought he
was going to die. I often admit such
persons, which the hospital records
will show, uud they are open to the
public for inspection. I could not have
admitted the man in question to tbe
hospital, no matter how much I so desired, without breaking the rules of
the institution.
Tbe whole trouble has arisen by Dr.
Forin making the charges on old
women's gossip and second-hand information, which in this case, the
same as in nil otheis, does not stand tbe
test. There is too much of this kind
of thing in Nelson, and I sincerely
hope this will serve as a good lesson
for the future. Thanking yon. Mr.
Editor, for the ipaoe yon have allowed

FOR   SOHOOL   CHILDREN.
Another Cooking Lesson for tho Little
Misses  Today.
The sohool children of the oity will
have another opportunity this morning to acquire some information about
cooking. Miss Livingstone will
hold u clnss for them ut 10 o'clook in
the hull over Neeluuds' Shoe Emporium. The children wero delighted
with the lecture a week ago aud many
mothers can testify to the great good
Miss Livingstone did to tbe little ones
on that occasion. Today's lesson���
dealing as it oes with very praotioal
subjects���should be largely attended.
The lessons will tell the pupils just
how to make good tea aud coffee, beef
tea, butter Scotch uud pulled cream
candy. Most little girls have nn idea
how ton aud coffee should bo made,
but they still have lots to learn ubout
making good tea uud collVe. It might
alio be mentioned, without uuy desire to give ollense, that thore are
some adults that might also learn
something to their advantage about
the same subject. Beef tea is another
useful drink, uud as for candy���well
the girls will be unanimous thut a
knowledge of how to make it Pis half
un education iu itself. So there should
be u good attendance of young uud old.
An admission foe of 15 cents will be
charged. The lecture on Camp
Cooking next Tuesday evening will be
oue of the most popular of the series
aud the men are expected to turn out
in lurge numbers to it. Miss Li"ing-
stone will cook various dishes aud tho
only utensils she will us i will bo n
fryiug pan nnd a tin busiu���just us
most campers arc forced tu do. Such
a lecture cannot fail to no of urcut
value iu a community like this.
Yesterday's subject was yens!
doughs. Bread, rolls, etc., were made
by the lecturer and the lurge nunil *-*r
of ladios present benefited greaily by
the lesson.
A COUNTERFEIT COIN.
A Chinaman Cots Into Trouble in
Buying Meat.
For attempting to puss a counterfeit
coin Chin Wab, a Chiueso store keeper
of Nelson, will come before Police
Magistrate Cronse at 10 o'olock this
morning. The alleged crime was com-
mittetd yesterday afternoon. Chin Wuh
purchased somo meat in Simpson &
Donley's store and gave u silver dollar
in payment. The money was accepted
and change given but the clerk, who
had occasion to handle the coin again,
did not think it was genuine. The
Chinaman had not left the store and,
whon told that the coin was not good,
expressed surprise and exchanged a
good dollar for it. He took it, into
the office where Mr. Douley was seated
and the latter told him to destroy
the coin. The Mongolian forthwith
dropped it into the stove He said he
must have received it ns genuine in
his store and had uo idea tbat it was
not all right. He appeared quite sincere and honest about the nffnir The
coin was recovered from the stove.
Word of the transaction reached the
police und Mr Wuh wns put under arrest. Some friends bulled him out.
uud he will be on hand this morning to
toll how it all happened.

grippe. Attempting to commit suicide is a criminal offence and Mr. Bullock-Webster, chief of Provinoial police, generally prosecutes such offenders but be has beeu informed by Dr.
Hall that White was not responsible
for his notion. He has had la grippe,
and to relieve it commenced driikiug.
While intoxicated he endeavored to
terminate his existence and is now not
only thoroughly repentant, but is not
at all anxious to interfere with the
course of nature in regulating the
length of hi- life. In view of this it
is probable that he will not be prosecuted. The case is ill the hands of
the Provincial police as the offense was
committed just outside the city limits,
which reach only to the C. P. R. track
along the hike front.

T. Sloan, of Slocan City, was in the
city yesterday. To Tbe Miner he said
that work was progressing steadily
on both the Two Friends and Bank
of England claims. A tunnel is being
run on each and the ore is ihowiug up
well. Mr. Sloan looks for a considerable revival in Slocan City business
this spring.
���   *   ���
A lease has been given ou the Tale
Holt near Slocan Oity by Mr. Ferguson to Messrs^ Batin and Atchison, of
Slocan City, wbo will work it.

It is again rumored that another

A. H. Kelley paid a visit to the
Exchequer mine Thursday and returned with the usual good news. The
shaft is now down over 50 feet and is
holding the same grade of ore and
width.
��   ���   ���
Development in the Slocan District
continues in its usual healthy condition, of which The New Denver Ledge
affords abundant evidence in its
camp news:
The Jaokson, another Whitewater
property, has Bent down 194 tons of
or. since the first of the year.
The Payne last week shipped 200
tons, making 1,704 tons for that great
property since January 1.
The Whitewater mine is doing better. Six carloads were shipped laBt
���week bringing the total since the 1st
of January to date up to 83 tons.
Shipments from the Last Chance
continue big. Last week 140 tons wer**
���ent down. Since the first, of the
year this property has shipped 880
tons.
Eighty tons were shipped from the
Wakefield last week. The Vancouver
sent out 20 tons. This about winds np
the ore shipments from these properties for the season.
The Noble Five will be a regular
and heavy shipper from Sandon early
in tho spring. The immense ore body
lately onoouutered is being blocked out
ready for stopiug.
The owners hava hit another stake
iu the property adjoining the Noonday.
Recent development work has shown
up a good ore body and it is the right
kind of stuff, too.
Work ou the March Bird will be
started in a few days. This property
adjoins the Pinto ot the Mollie
Hughes groui), and has a ntroug quartz
ledge showing, carrying good values in
silver aud small in gold.
If tb. shipment of ore from the Slocan mines continues as heavy aB it has
been in the past two months the record for the year will be a pheuominal
one, the total shipments reaching a
probable figure of 50,000 tons.
Work is progressing favorably on
the Royal Five group, New Denver.
The ledge has been shown up by a 30-
foot tunnel, and the ore is of a most
���ucouraging nature. The owners,
Messrs. Ray, et al, of Vaneouvor, have
a local representative who is directing
the work.
The working force is boing increased
at tho Oomstock. The concentrator is
now iu operation and the great dumps
of concentrating ore are gradually diminishing ub it is being run to the
mill. Iu addition to the concentrating
ore takou out, two tons of olean ore
are sacked daily.
On the Hartnov, another of the coming mines of Silver Mountain, a fine
body of ore is showing. Development
work has stopped temporarily, as this
property, like tbe others on which
work was Btarted in tho fall, is not in
a position tor the workmen to be protected from the danger of snow slides.
The Emilv Edith is sorting ore for
another shipment, whioh will probably
be made next week. Tho ore body has
been encountered in the No. 8 tunnel
of this property, and great  quantities
are now   being tuken out.    The  foroe
lumber 25 men,   several of whom   are
mm New Devner, where   their fami-
ios reside.
A shaft has been sunk 28 feet ou
the li. D. Fraction, adjoining the
townsitu and a few hundred feet this
way from the Bosun, and a strong
quartz ledge, IK inches in thickness.has
been encountered. Tho ore is strongly
diffused with iron, and has every indication that it will shortly run into ore.
The walla and ledgo matter resemble
iu every particular that found on the
Bosun, aud it is tho belief of the owners that they have here another   mine.
The force of workmen on the
Busun has beeu iuoroasedthis mouth to
25. Work on the No. 8 tunnol was
startod Saturday. This opening will
tap tho ore bod ion ISO foot deeper down
than the No. 2 and will increase the
output of the mine considerably when
oro is encountered there. The shipments from the mine iu February
reached 100 tons. In January 120 tons
were seut out. The shipments for
March will be up to Ibe average, while
in April and throughout tho summer,
the output will be largely increased.
Between (111 and 75 men aro uow
emploved at the Queen Boss mine.
The mine continues to improve under
development, aud tbe lowest tunnel is
now in oro lor a distance of nearly 100
feet, this ore being the continuation
in depth of the big ore chute in tho
tunnel above. Another ore chute has
beeu struck in the uppermost tunnel,
at a considerable depth from the surface. It iB expected that heavy shipments will be made iu March. Since
Mr. H. T. Butcher, superintendent,
resigned iu January, Mr. G. Noel
Brown has been acting mauager, assisted by Mr. H. B. Williams. As
Ut ly announced all tlie ore from the
mine iB now being shipped to the Hall
Mines smelter at Nelson via Rosebery.
*   ���   ���
The Rosslaud Reoord of the 2nd
says: "Yesterday there were but 15
men working in the big Le Roi mine,
but everything had heen put in readiness for the order to ship again and so
last night when the orders wore received a force of 120 meu were put on
at ouce on the first shift. The other
two shifts were filled up today so that
there are nearly 800 men now on duty
at the mine. The mine has been put in
excellent shape and timbered throughout during the time that it was closed
down, and 800 tous per day will be the
output for shipment oommeuoing this
week, and will be kept up until such
time as the smelter at Northport can
handle more ore, when an increase will
be made in the output aud shipment
to 500 tous a day.
"It is predicted that the Le Roi
will soon make a reoord never before
held in this country as a shipper, aud
the entire community will be boue
fitted by tlie improved facilities and
increased output of the mine. The legal
entanglements have now been all
settled and the property is absolutely
in tho hands of the British Americ i
Corporation."

Amongst the Lardeau mining items
iu The Revelstoke Herald is the following: "The snowfall so far, at
ihe Silver Oup has beeu 272 inches.
Lust year, about this time, the snow
falljat Ferguson, some 3,000 feet lower
was 47 feet, the snow fall at the Lake
being about the same."
