Nelson, British Columbia, Tuesday, April 4,   1899.
nh Year
Corps of Engineers Leave
for the District
0. P. E- Will Likely  Start at Argenta
Shortly and Push tha Work
Along  Rapidly! -
Although no definite announcement
was made to that effect the people of
Nelson have become quite reconciled
to thi- belief that the 0. P. R. has no
intention of extending the Crow's
Nest line from Kootenay Landing to
Nelson tbis summer. Tbe construction of this work would have been of
immense benefit to Nelson and uni-
Tersal regret was expressed that the
company was not* to do it as soon as
expeoted. But as things look now tho
prospiicts are yery good for Nelson receiving the full benefit of railway construction this summer after all. The
C. P. R, has been expected to build into the Lardo country but as the work
was supposed to start from the Arrowhead end of the proposed road no immediate good wus anticipated for Nelson. The complexion of affairs has
changed, howeyer, in the past few days
and now eyery indication pointB to the
early commencement of the work from
a point near Argenta. at the head of
Kootenay Lake, which will make Nelson the direct source of supply for the
large gangs of men that will necessarily
be engaged.
Yesterday afternoon a purty of
engineers iu the employ of the 0. P.
R. left for Aigenta and will commence
at onoe to lay out the line from that
point. The party was composed of A.
E. Doucet, Q. H Gordon, G. L. Law,
P. 0. Grant, and Gordon Grant.
These gentlemen haye been for some
time working on the hue out from Arrowhead but received news that
brought them off post haste to Nelson
and on through to the head of the
Kootonay Lake. They did not stay
here a moment longer than they could
help as their orders wero to push on
���without delay. The reason for all this
haste could! not he learned from the
engineers who had nothing to say of
their movements but when two and
two are put together the reason is eaa ���
ily figured out.
At the present time engineers of the
Great Northern are locating a line into the Lardo and Trout Lake districts
to tap that rich mining region. It is
pretty well understood thut this is
a sebeme of Ml. Hill to extend the
Nelson & Bedlington road up the
east side of Kootenay Lake to ultimately connect with a line in the
Trout Lake district. The 0. P. R.
does not view this intrusion with favor
and has deoided to offset it by losing
no time in building into the country
itself. Mr. Hill has shown himself
so active that the 0. P. R. will lose no
more time in cheokmating him.
As the 0 P. R. first intended to get
to work the road would turn from Arrowhead up Fish River to Pool Greek,
crossing Fish River, thence southerly
to Trout Lake, along the wost Bide of
that lake aud skirting the Lardo River
to a point near Argenta on Kooteuay
Lake. Now the programme is reversed
und work will commence from the
Argenta end. The engineers will get
to work at onoe and it will probably
be only a short time before an announcement is made and actual work
of construction commences. Wheu the
lino iB finally oompleted to Arrowhead it will provide a muoh shorter
connection between Nelson and the
main line of the 0. P. R. and make
only one ohange necessary between
Revelstoke and here.
The proposed line ot.the Great Northern runs from Argenta, along the west
,ide of Duncan Lake and Dnnoan River
into the Trout Lake district. The
proposed terminus is not known but
the line would undoubtedly run far
enough north to tap a large" number of
Both roads now seem to be out for
the business the rich Lardo-Dnuoan
and Trout Lake districts have to offer
and in the soramble the oountry will
benefit greatly.

Seems Probable.
London, April 8.���The Daily Mail's
correspondent at Gotheuberg, reverting
to the warlike preparations of Norway, says: "The only possible objeot
of these preparations is to attaok
Sweden, whose defenses and armament

armed with obsolete weapons. Should
the Norwegian fleet attack Gotben-
berg, the city must , inevitably   fall."
Would Bo Murderer Stabbed to  Death

lunged forward with the knife striking
him tairly in the stomach.

the knife into her husband, until at
the fifth blow he fell backward dead.
Brown wns stabbed five times. He
was a packing house employee.

high authority that even partial repudiation is tho last solution that will bi

What is Needed to Convey the Passen.
gers of London.
We get some conception of the immensity of the passenger traffic of
London aud New York from the fact
that the passengers carried every year
within these two cities outnumber by-
many thousands the entire population
of the world, says Tit-Bits.
The railways, omuibuaes and trams
of Greater London convey 70,000,000
passengers every year, au army which,
however, closely packed, would more
than fill the whole of our London parks
16 times over; or, iu other words,
London's passengers would require an
enormous park ten miles long, and fivo
miles wide merely for standing
room. They would form a column lti
abreast and standing at intervals of
a yard long enough to reach around
tho earth at the equator, with a residuary column 32 feet deep reaching from
Loudon  to  Naples.
Apart from the railways, ou which
alone ��00,000,000 has beeu spent within the last 20 years, London's passengers require a line of omnibuses long
enough to stretch two deep from Whito-
chapel station iu the far east across
London to Shepherd's Bush statiou in
the weBt The tram cars m daily use
when horsed would form a Bingle line
from Shepherd's Bush via Holhoru nnd
Oxford street to the Bank of England, a distance of six miles. The 11,-
000 odd hansoms and four wheel cabs
would make an imposing column four
deep and as long as our double ilue of

Nearly a million people travel every
day by rail within the boundaries of
London. Making due allowance for
the decreased 'traffic on (Sundays, London railway passengers alone for a year
would fill all Loudon's parks seven

Ottawa, April 8.���Tho Brockville
Recorder asked Major Walsh what he
had to say about the attick made ou
him by Sir Hibbert Tupper. He replied that he did not care to say anything a present, beyond characterizing
the statements of Sir Hibbert Tapper
as malicious and falsa,   and that there
was not a word of truth iu anything
that he had said concerning him.
The customs collection of the Dominion for nine months of the fiscal year
eliding March 31, last, were $18,810,-
425, as compared with $10, 541,878, for
the previous year, or an increase of
$2,358, 537. For the month of March
the receipts were $2,363,204 as against
$2,428,485 for March 18118. This shows
a decreaBo of about $60,000, which is
accounted for by Good Friday being
iu March this year and in April last
year, thereby making the collection of
last month short of March 1808.

Twelve Months.
The Handsome Now  Ohurch is all but
Paid for and the Outlook is
Very Bright.
The annual Easter meeting of the
congregation of St. Savionrs' ohuroh
was bold last evening. The'freports
of the officers showed the church to be
in a most encouraging condition.
The handsome new church building,
the best in the Kootenays, haB very
little outstanding agaiust it and by
the time it is completed it will be entirely paid for. The revenue as it it
at present will fully meet the estimated expenditure for the ensuing
years, taking into account the rapid
growth that the congregation has experienced and which will continue,
there will undoubtedly be a largo surplus by next Easter Monday. This is
a state of affairs of which the congregation mny well feel proud. The
Rector, Rev. II. S. Akehurst, presided
nt tbe meeting and after tho minutes
nf tho previous mooting had been read
nnd approved he made a few remarks
about the progress of the churoh.
The Sunday School ho stated, had a
superintendent, secretary and treasurer, six teachers and 80 children
with nu average attendance of about
60. Their accounts showed receipts
amounting to $168.76 of which $120.49
was paid for the font alone. The reports for the Ladies Guild showed that
1413.86 had been plnced to the build-
ingb fund and in addition to this the
Indies hud placed pews in the church
at a cost of $231. This speaks volumes
f���*���*��� tho fait'".'.*'*. o". the ladies of the
congregation, Besides the expenditure of that amount of money the
Guild bus contributed largely to the furnishing of the church,there are Bpecial
gifts representing large sums. Mr.
Akehurst proceeded to thank nil those
who had assisted so generously in the
season's work and concluded by reviewing what bnd been done towards
having the Kootenays set asidf into a
speoial diocese. The matter is still
pending, The total receipts for the
year from this parish amounted to
$8,346.96. Thero are 180 communicants
now on the roll.
The warden's statement of the general fund for tho year wns next considered. It showed total assets of $7779.17
with total liabilities of $1,164.16. As
over iJ3.500 bus already been spent ou
the church building and the revenue
is so satisfactory, the liabilities are extremely small.
After the report had been discussed
briefly it wns adopted and the election
of officers was proceeded with, result
ing as follows:

ling.S. J. Sims and H. B. Taite.
Lay delegates to Synod.���Messrs. W.
A. Jowett, George Johnstone, E. A.
Mr. Lay spoke of tho excellent work
of the organ 1st and choir during the
year and moved that a vote of thanks
bo tendered them. Mr. W. Irvine
seconded the motion aud in so doing
complimented tho recipients ou the
very line music they were providing
referring especially to tho Easter services. Votes of thanks were also tendered to the retiring officers, the Lad-
les (iuild, the Sunday School stuff, aud
to Mr. Akehurst. The last mentioned
responded feelingly.
The question of the lack of a sidewalk iu front of tho church came np
for discussion. The meeting seemed
to think that tho only stone church iu
tlie Kootenay wns certainly entitled
to a side-wall*; which would replace the
existing muddy ways to the   entrance.
The chinch wardens were requested
to interview tho City Council and impress upon the City Father* tho
necessity of fbe work. However as tho
work has nlrendy been ordered and
all that now delays it is the lack of
lumber which will bo remedied in a
few days. St Saviours may look forward to proper communication with
her sidewalks   iu   the   nonr future.

vestry meeting had adjourned.

A Ministerial correspondent expresses the belief that the vacant Pcst-
mastership of Montreal will not be
filled for some time. He speaks of Mr.
McSbaue's availability, but says that
In Mr. Beausoleil, M. P., he has a
strong rival. And then he adds:
"It is not probable that Mr. Boauso-
ltil will retire trjiu political life during this session." This is a round
about way of saying that the appointment is going to the member of Parliament, which means that another
Liberal member is sitting in the House
with the appointment itself or the
promise of it iu his packet. In the
good old days of Liberal Opposition
such a practice as this was regarded as

A Splendid Programme is
to be Given-
A Number of First * Okss Oonoerts Have
Been Arranged to Take Plaoe in
the Near Future.
In the Nelson Opera Honso tomorrow evening the first annual concert of
the NelBon Musical Society will be
given. For threo months tho members
of the Society have been practising ns-
sidiously and everything now points
to n very successful oonoert from an
artistio standpoint. The advance
sale of tickets has beon large enough
to guarantee its suoccss from a commercial point of view and also indicates (hat the oitizens of Nelsou are
not slow to avail thenisolves of an opportunity to Jear really first class
music. It would he hard to choose a
hotter programme which is made up
of some of the choicest gems of the old
masters with sufficient soleotions of
a lighter nature to please all tastes.' It
has heen a most ambitious uudeitaking for the society as few amateurs m
Canada would taokle such nn arduous
work. But under tho indefatigable
baton of Mr. W. F. Brougham the
difficulties have disappeared and recent
rehearsals give promise of a distinct
triumph for the local musicuins.
There are fourteen numbers on tin*
programme which opens with tho
march Hougroise (Rackocsy) from tin*
"Damnation of Faust," by tho orchestra composed of thirteen pieces.
A double quartette, "Tho Sands of
Dee," by Macfurren, is next. Mr.
Frank Oliver, of Rossland will ship
(a) "Songs My Mother taught Mo,"
by Dvorak, (b) "Star Vinco al be]
Idol," hy Balvator Rosa. Herr Steiner
will make his debut in Nelson and
those who have heard him predict 11
treat as he is a 'celhiist of considerable
ability. He will play Schubert's,
"Litanie" and Dunkler'e "Reverie. "
A sceuo from Wagner's "Tunnlumsi-r"
by Mr. R. M. Macdonald aud the Nelson Musical Society, follows. Mrs.
Brougham is down for two selections,
one an aria from Meyerbeer's "Pre
phete" and tho other, "When all was
Young, "from Faust. Mr. Kydd is
down for a solo. Mr. Oliver will givr
another selection. There are two
more double quartettes, solo by Mrs.
Troup with chorus by the Musical
Society, to conclude with march ami
chorus from Scene III, Act II, "Taun
hauser." Such a programme at all
well rendered will be the greatest musical treat Nelson has ever enjoyed.
Tho concert wil start promptly at
eight o'clock and ticket holders arc
requested to bo iu their seats by thai
hour. There are several good seats
still for sale at tho Thompson Station
ery Co., and tho Canada Drug and
Book Co.
On Monday and Tuesday next the
Ohioago Ladies Quatrette will appear
in the Opera House. This organization is well known throughout the
States and Canada and have an envi-
ablo record. The artists are as follows:
Grace Caboru, soprano; Rose Luti-
ger, contralto aud accompanist; Jessie
E. Dunn, mezzo-soprano and pianist;
Alice Merrill Raymond, alto-solist and
musical director; Zulieme Searles
Bolkcom, impersonator. This is what
some of the papers have to say of the
singing: Thoir quartette singing is
Bimply perfect and every member is an
artist. ���Denver Republican.
Their work throughout was of the
highest character and their harmony
perfect. ���Topeka Daily Capital.
A quartette of musical ability. They
sing as with one voice, a faultless interpretation and clear, concise rendition.���Kansas City Jounal.
Thoir ensemble singing is exquisite ;
beautiful blending voices, of good quality of tone, modulating at times into
intricate harmony artistically executed
is indeed a rare pleasure in these
times when crudity and noise make up
for lack of skill aud tonal deficiencies.
���Wiuulneg (Man.) Tribuiio.
Another first class oonoert arranged
for will be given uuder the auspices
of the Ladies Aid of St. Paul's iu the
Oporn House on tho evening of Mon
day the 17th inst. Herr Stoiuor is arranging the programme which is sufficient guarantee that it will be a first
olass one. Mrs. Parry, Mrs. Brougham, and Mrs. W. A. Macdonald and
Mr. Goo. Kydd will sing aud Mrs.
Bruce White will contribute violin
selections. MendelBsohn'j^popular trio
in minor will he played bv Mrs.
white, Miss Wilson and Herr Steiner.
Mr. W. A. Jowett will act as accompanist. This concert, together with
the postponed one of tbe Catholic
Church, one under tho auspices of the
Ladies Aid of the Methodist Church
and the two mentioned above, makes
the muBioal outlook iu Nelsou a vory
pleasant one.
Herr Steiner has been engaged as
leader of the Opera Houso orchestra.
He will surround himself with somo
good musicians and Opera House patrons will be treated to first class music.
The start will be a modest one but
n�� the patronage warrants it other
pieces will he added.
Easter music in tho churches drew
out vory large congregations on Bon-
u*y. At the morning service in St,
mil s   Church    Mrs.     Troup    sang
cut Thou Didst. Not L.eave" from
ttaudal's Messiah with great taste
and expression. A large number of
peoplo were turned away from the
���rening lervtoe, the handsome ohuroh
being overcrowded. Two anthems
were sung, "Ho is Risen," by Sim-
der. Mrs. Troup taking the solo pnrt
in a very phasing manner. Mrs. Melville Parry sang, "I knew that mv
Redeemer l.ivcth," from tin-. Messiah,
Her oharming voice was never herd
to better Advantage in Nelson. The
singing of the choir wns ulso very good
especially iu the Messiah choruses
and "Ho is Risen." Tho ohoir is
making very satisfactory prouress,
Whioh reflects credit upon Mr. Jowett, thu leader. In tho Presbyterian
church Mr. Caldwell sung tho solo,
"Calvary" at tbe morning service and
Mrs. W. A. Maodonald "Tbo King of
Love My Shepherd is," at tho evening service. Both solos wero very
well sung.
Mr. Melville Parry has heen appointed Kootenay correspondent for
the Now York Mirror, the"well known
Dramatic paper.

Many Promising Properties
Coming to the Front
Aid* G* Frank Beer Think*! it Will Greatly
Retard the District if Enforced ���
Wagon Eoads Needed-
That the miuing legislation railroaded through the Provincial Legislature
at the tail end of the session will (lo n
great deal of harm to the mines in the
Lardo-Duucan district is the opinion
of Aid. G. Frank Beer, who has just
returned from :i visit to that region.
In talking with a Miner reporter yesterday, Aid. Beer stated that the law
would surely prove unworkable and
that if it was enforced it would mean
trouble with the miners which would
perhaps end in the closing down of
all the mines. In a uew country it
would not be possible to pay $3.50 a day
for eight hours of work. In the Rossland camp it iB altogether different as
tha properties are pretty well developed. In the Lardo district the men
are so far away from any centre that
they have nothing to do but work and
would rather stay in the mine ten
hours a day for $3.50 than lay off for
16 hours at reduced pay. The men had
no complaint whatever as to their
work and but a few of them know
yet that the eight hour law is in force.
Aid. Beer thinks that au attempt to
enforce the law will do irreparable
harm to the country.
Speaking of the Lardo district generally Aid. Beer said that he expeoted
to see great activity in the properties
there this season. Heretofore the
owners of Lardo claims stood iu the
way of its advancement ou account of
the prohibitive prices they asked for
their properties. Thore arc signs uow
that it will be worked at a more businesslike basis than heretofore which
will encourage a large amount of capital to go in. There is uo doubt abont
tho district being exceptionally rich
and wheu tbe weather permits active
work will start on a great many
claims. Thore are several good companies interested in properties there
and the showings thus far have been
sufficient to oucourage them to push
on the work. The good prospect of tho
early building of a railroad through
tho richest mining region has gieutl.v
stimulated development work. This
moans considerable to Nolson as this
Oity will be the supply point for the
southern part of the district and also
for the camps as far north as the enter
prise of Nolson Merchants can make
itself felt.
The most immediate want of the region it the extension of the wagon
road up the north fork of tho Lardo
River not less than six miles. This
would givo shipping facilities for 2(1
good properties and be ot imnienso
benefit to the district. It would be easily constructed and would uot be au
expensive piece of work.
While in the district Aid. Beer
made arrangements for taking tho ore
from the Beatrice miue in which he
is interested to Thompson's Lauding,
When ho left 10 horses aud nine men
were at work bringing down the oie.
The season being Into before the trail
was mado he will not get down as
much as he oxpected but hopes to have
over a huudred tons down before tho
road breaks. While ho was at the
niino they drove IB feet in the lower
tunnel, striking the vein, and completing 120 feet of work. The showing
is very satisfactory. Thoy are now
drifting ou the vein and pushing the
work as rapidly as possible. The appearances continue favorable.
Speaking of other properties iu tin*
district Aid. Beer said that while he
wan at his property men were put to
work on the adjoining claim the Silver
CJuoeu. Work will also shortly commence on the Black Diamond,
Nettie L., Littlo Robert, Union Jack,
Rob Roy and others. ,1. W. Westfall
of Rossland was in thu country with
Mr. Beer. His lirm is interested in
several properties upon which devel
opmout will be pushed as soon ns tin*
season admits. The Old Gold Quartz
aud Placer Mining Co., and the Primrose Gold Mining Company have done
considerable work. On each property a
working tunnel is now being driven
and both have considerable oro on the
dump. A shaft is being sunk and
drifting oontinuod on the Nettie L.,
undei the supervision of D. J. Cameron. The recont strike on this property
has caused quite an excitement in
the country and brought hosts of congratulations to Mr. Pool, who is largely
interested uud who iH one of tho moBt
popular mining men in the district.
The St. Elmo, owned by Hugh Mc-
Pherson is ono of the most promising
claims and active work iH expeoted to
commence in a few days. While there
Mr. Beer heard that several valuable
claims had ohanged hands and iu each
oaso work will be coienmnced as soon
as the Hiiuw admits. The Bad Shot,
on Gayuor Crook, owned by Messrs.
Johnston & Campbell will bo largely
developed and considerable money will
be spent on it this spring. ThiH property should become a shipper in the
near future. Iu fact there should be
not loss (ban ten shippers in this district this season.
The probability of the 0. P. R.
building up Pish Creek as far as Pool
Oreok will result in a large amount
of work being done there. Already
plans are completed to put a lurge
number of men to   work niirly'in May.
The Mohawk is one of lhe prorating
claiuiH thore. The Toinson, owned
by Messrs. Ferguson and Know Ies, V
adjoining the Silver  Oup,   will
considerable work done at it with
the probability of its heing one of
the best properties and largest shippers
in the distriot.
In conclusion Aid. Beer said that he
had every confidence in the district
proving oue of the richest in the Province aud that this season would see it
make great progress.
#   ��   *
The winze being sunk in the No. 3
tunnel at the Wakefield Mines, has
now reachod a depth of 70 feet. The
ground is hard aud quite an inflow of
water was encountered, so that the
contractors concluded to throw up the
contract and work for the company at
days pay. A good famount of ore has
been encouutored all the way down, so
tho company will push the work to
completion as fast as possible. The
Wakefield Mines are employing a
large number of men doing development work. When their tramway is
iu operation tho building of which is
decided upon, it will be the biggest
shipping mine in the lako region.���

take a walk with him. When they
arrived at Lover's Rock, a snot
made famous because an Indian chief
bad there murdered a French girl who
