Ninth Year
A
Windsor Hotel Burned and
Many Lives Lost.
FIRE SPREAD RAPIDLY
The  Building  Was   Crowded   and    all
AveimeB of EBoape Were Out Off
by Seething Flames.
New York, March 17���Flames, which
originated from tho igniting of a lace
em-tain, burst forth from the seoond
floor of the Windsor Hotel at 47th and
Fifth Avenue, shortly after I) o'clock,
just as the St. Patrick's Day parade
wits passing the building and in a few
minutes they had leaped up to the roof
nml enveloped the entire Fifth Avenue
und 47th Street fronts of the hotel.
Ten minutes later the flames were
rearing through the interior of the hotel and nil means of esoupe hy means
of stairways and elevators was cut off
ami there was the wildest scene of
exoitement within ana without the
building. Hundreds of the guests und
employes woro in the hotel whon the
tiiu broke out and for many of thorn,
to escape with safety was   impossible.
Probably from ten to fifteen lives
were lost within half an hour and
thirty or forty other persons were injured in jumping from windows and iu
rushing through tho roaring flames in
tbe corridors aud on the stairways.
Many who were injured died. later .at
nearby residences and at the hospitals,
and others, who made wild leaps to
tho stones, were so badly injured that
they are still hovering between life
and death. It may bo 24 hours or
more before tho complete lis**, of fatalities may become known nnd it will
be lunger than thai   before   it   can   be
ascertained    definitely    how     many
chaired bodies arc in the mass of fallen masonry that marks the spot
where the hotel stood.
Tho Ilnme9 could not be checked
and in two hours from the time that
tin* fire hioke out. the entire structure
was in rums, and the streets on three
sides of the building were filled with
del ris from fulling walls and tall chimneys, while the streams of wnter lining poured upon tho interior of the
nuns had no other effect than to lill
the air wilh clouds'of scalding steam,
making it impossible for any one to
approach near enough to search for
missing bodies,
Tho lire was the most spectacular
uffnir of 'he kind that could lie imagined. When it broke out, Fifth Avenue wns crowded with people watching the St. Patrick's Day parade and
every window in the front of the hotel, facing Fifth Avenue, wns filled
with people watching the marching
men in tbe streets. The day was nil
that could be desired and large numbers of peoplo wero on the Btreets ou
llint account., a fact which interfered
not a little with the movements o f
the firemen and police. As soon as
the flames were first discovered shooting from the windows, that part of

which wns near the building enme to
a halt and in a few minutes the parade
was disbanded, for the police came
lushing towards tho fire from evory
directions, nnd as far as they wero
utile, drove the people from the streets
One alarm after another was turned
in and the first of tho fire engines
were not long in appearing upou the
scene and they caused a wild scram -
Mo among the paruders and spectators
ns thoy rushed along the street nnd
uot into position for service. In addition to the regular guests of the hotel,
the windows were crowded by a large
niiiiilier of spectators, residents of this
oity, who had congregated thore to
witness the parade.
Soon aftor the first alarm was given
peoplo in the lower floors of tho hotel,
those who had easy access to the street,
commenced to pour out of the building m great numbers, but it very soon
became apparent that, a groat majority
of the occupants of tho hotel were
either panic-stricken or were unable
to make their way to the ground floor.
Windows were thrown up on every
side and guests, mostly women, in nil
stages of terror, made their appearance uud commenced to make frantic
appeals for help to the crowd below.
As the flames gathered around them,
they became more and more terror
stricken and presently several of them
stood up on the narrow   window   sills
'Street and Fifth Avenue, direct.lv j
across from the hotel, stands the home |
of Miss llolen  Gould,    At   her   diroc-
| tiou Ihe injured wero carried in and
woro attended liy physicians mid nurses
wh' in she had sent for. In the meantime the chief of polico hud telephoned
to every hospital in the city asking
that assistance lie sent to the fire sufferers. Ainbulnnci'H forced thoir way
through the crowds as quickly as possible ami thn injured people, who had
made frightful leaps from windows,
were pinned  in   iiiom and removed to
the hospitals, Several occupants of
the hotel iippo-irod at the windows of
the sixth and seventh stories, and even
on roof, and mndo their leaps to the
street from these points, Very few of
them escaped either instant death or
injuries which resulted iu their deaths
a short time later. Meantime tlie
entile building was burning. Within
40 minutes after the lire lirst broke
out, tho walls on the Fifth Avenue
side showed evory indication of falling
and presently with an awful crash
they struck the asphalt covering of tho
street in front of the hotol uud caused
the hundreds of people
standing there to scatter,
ened the walls on Kith
Streets and thoy followed
later. When tho walls fol
and mortar, twisted gliders and corrugated iron filled the streets on throe
sides of tho hotel. The door stops and
iron fences iu front of the houses on
the opposite side from the hotol were
wrecked by falling walls and the
amount, of debris piled in the streets
was so great that travel will bo impeded for several days. The northeast
wing continued to burn for half nu
hour after the walls of tho other part
of the building foil. The firemen continued to play streams upon the flumes,
also on all adjoining buildings including Miss Gould's residence, which
seemed in imminent danger of catching fire. But. the flames were brought
under control before thoy could reach
any of them.
There wero many thrilling scenes in
the hotel during tho early stages of
the lire. As soon as the fire broke
out, a bell-hoy discovered the flames
while passing tho fourth floor, immediately ovor rooms occupied hy
President McKinley's brother, Abner
McKinley and his family. Tho boy
pulled a chain attached to tho fire
alarm, but the chain broke aud then
he cried out tlie alarm and ran to the
floor below. The blaze was then taping up everything ou the Fifth Avenue
end of the building and tho lad, when
ho got to the floor above the main
hall, ran into the dining room *.'.**;i

On Mr.L'land's instructions the clerks
tried to save all hooks and papers and
ihe boy then rushed down the distant
stairway and alarmed the women who
woro at. work in the laundry. It is
believed that all of them escaped.
One of the most daring lescues
effected by the firemen occurred on the
fifth floor in the Fifth Avenue side.
An elderly woman was seen at, a window and two firemen succeeded in
reaching the window immediately
underneath Ono of them climbed
up the coping over the window on
which he was standing and then
slopped over to where tho womnn was
waving her hands despairingly. He
lhen swung the woman clear of tho
window and landed her safely in the
arms of his companion, who with the
assistance of several other firemen,
missed the woman down tn tho street.
Among those reported missing are
tho daughters of Wurren Lelaud, the
well known hotel proprietor and owner
of the Windsor Hotel; Mrs. Alfred

MINISTER'S STATEMENT
A Year Ago the Naval Basss Were Not

Paris, Much 17���In Chamber of Deputies today, during a debate on the naval estimates, M. Lockroy, sketched
the Government programme and gave
a curious iusight into tho unprepured-
ness of tho navy during the reoent
A iglo-French crisis. M. Lookroy said
he regarded the defence of the maritime frontier quite as important as
the defence of the Vosges frontier and
that, while France desires peooe and
would oaruestly strive to perserve it,
a strong navy must be in readiness to
repel aggrossion. The Minister of Marine then proceeded to reveal n number of startling facts relating to the
c million of the Frenoh arsenals at the
critical juuoture in relations between
France and Great Britain some months
ago. He quoted from the letter ���writ-
ton by General Desbordes lost yenr.
declaring that "Not one of our naval
bases is able to fulfill tho functions
for which it was established or capable
of making a defence to save the honor
of French armies." "Today, how

Washington, Maroh 17.���The first
news of the signature of the Peuoe
Treaty by the Queen Regent of Spain
was conveyed to Secretary Hay and
tho oflicials of the Administration
through the bulletin of tho Associated
Press. The Secretary wus naturally
gratified at the uction which he had
expeoted would follow tho course of
the Cortes. The aotion makes it
possible to exchange rntiflcntions and
thus complete tho trenty within the
time Bet by the treaty itself as the
maximum, The protocol was signed
August 111 Inst at, the White House hy
tho President and Ambassador Cam
bun. December 10 the treaty was
signed at Paris by the Commissioners.
February fl it was ratified by the
United StntOB Senate alter a considerable struggle. February 10 the President gave it his signature aud today,
seven months uud four day aftor the
signing of tho protocol, the Spanish
Queen Regent gave her formal assent
ind signature. Official news of the
aotion nt Madrid was not couveryed
io the State Department heforo the
ilnse of the Department for the day.
M. Caiubon, the French Ambassador,
Hilled at the Department abont 10
uinutes to four o'clock and in tho ab-
-ence of Secretary Hny, called upon
Assistant Seoretary Hill He told the
latter that he believed tho treaty had
"eon   signed.    It uow seems   probable
hat to the Ambassador will be confid-
. ;'i rue honur ot closing up the task
whioh ho set about seven months ago,
nf bringing iwo groat nations, then at
var, to a stale of peace. Usually the
rule is for a nation situ,.tod as is Spain
o send a special envoy, charged with
i ho duty of exohi.ii,.ng the ratifications. In this,caso tl.o wish of the
Hnited States Government will be
consulted and there is little doubt, in
view of the kindly regard entertained
for tho Ambassador by the President,
(hat he will elect to have M. Oamhon
to act for the last time as the representative of the Spanish Government
ind make the exchange. The signing
if the treaty cannot in any manner
iffect the status of the Spanish prison-
rs in the hands of Aguinaldo for the
United States Goverrnment is doing
ill that it can to secure their release,
still it is apprehended that the Spanish Government, being able to address
itself directly to the United States
Government as soon as the ratifica-
lions are exchanged, will not neglect
lo press the matter upon the attention
of the State Department and perhaps
will solicit authority to assume direct
negotiations with the insurgents, looking to the release of the prisoners.
The hope is entertained, however,
ihat it may be unnecessary to decline
such a request for by that date the insurrection may have heen quelled. If
ihe Spanish Government should in-
sits, however, some disagreeable questions may be raised, involving the
formal recognition of the insurgents
liy Spain, in which ease perhaps, it
might claim tho right to deal directly
with Aguinaldo.

Government Measure.
London. Mareh 17.���Lord. George
Hamilton, in answering a question in
the House of Commons, today, said
the Indian Governmeut imposing duties upon bounty fed sugar was to
prevent the vast indigenous trade, based upon free enterprise and industry.
Being undermined, they subsidized
products of foreign countries. He
said that if general disposition was
shown to debate the subject fully, ho
was ready to postpone official approval
of the act until it was discussed, although the act would become operative on Monday. He further explained that according to tho law by which
the bill was passed by Legislative
Oouuoil, the measure would bocomo
operative immediately after the Viceroy should approve of it. But should
Secretary of State for India later signify his disapproval, the act would
cease to be law. Public opinion in
India, he said, in conclusion, unanimously approved of the hill.

South Kootenay Board of Trade and
will explain tho situation:
Mr. W. D. Scott, one of the members of the Canadian Board of Commissioners of the Paris Exhibition of
11)00, arrived in Victoria yesterday,
and will be in the Oity probably for
the balance of this week.
The looul Governmeut have undertaken the collection of the different exhibits whioh aro puroly of a Provincial character, the prinoipnl being
minerals, fisheries, timber and sohool
exhibits. The locution of the exhibition ground in Paris is in the very
heart of the city and on this aooouut
the totul spoce covered by tho exhibition will be limited. Tho total space
allotted by the Commissioners to the
Home Government is 35,000 square
feet, and of thnl space the Home Government has allotted to Canada 39,11X1
which is situated in the Trooodero
('aniens, and the balance of 12,000 is
in the different Imperial buildings.
It will he noticed from the very
limited space that it is altogether out
of the question for each Province to
have separate space for their respective
exhibits, tho whole having to be
treated as a "-���union exhibit. For
instance, '. ...h. agricultural display of Canada will be in one blook,
and all the minerals in another, making one grand exhibit of the resources
of Canada.
The Prinoe of Wales, who in chairman of the British Royal Commission,
in his opeiing address at Marlborough
House, said thnt he wished to impress
upon tho Commission the importanoe
of seeing that all articles sent to Paris,
w bother their value be great or small,
should bo the best of their kind. They
will bo judged in comparison -with
similar tilings produced in other countries, and will be exposed to tbe severest criticism. It should also be
remembered that this is not so muoh
an oooassion for competition of British exhibitors amoug themselves as
for competition between Birtish and
Irish competitors and those of foreign
countries. For this reason the display of similar or identical objeots by
different exhibitors should he avoided
as much as possible and efforts should
be mado to secure "nriety to making
the most of the space at our disposal.
It is difficult to avoid some duplication whon several manufacturers of
similar articles wish to show their
goods, and it would be invidious to
give the preference to one out of
many, but it ought not to be impossible either to form joint exhibits,
giving ns complete a representation as
possible of particular industries, or for
manufacturers to come to some agreement among thomsolves which would
bring about the same result. Such a
plan, though it might call for some
self-sacrifice on the part of individuals,
would secure a degree of completeness
which could not otherwise be attained,
and would go fur to promote the
common interests of the industry as a
whole.
The Commissioners, in making a
rough sub-division of the space fo> the
different industries, have estimated
that the following may ho allowed;
for agriculture in all its branches,
something like 7,000 square feet;mines
and quart ies, 8000; education and instruction, l.oiKI; forestry, 2,000. These
are practically the spaces that the people of British Columbia are mostly
Interested in. and as before roniarked,
on account of tho vory limited space,
tho exhibit in each brunch should be
shown as a collective one from the
whole Province.
I expect, that the different Boards of
Trade and Mining Exchanges, as well

UP IN NANAIMO.
Thoy have a ouriouB discussion going on up iu Nnniamo. Perhaps it
would bo more correct to describe it
ns unconimon. It has got into the
City Council, and ooncerns school
teachers.    The aldermen   aro   exciting
themselves over the question whether
school teachers have the right to employ their leisure time In commercial
pursuits. It is somewhat high sounding, but doubtless what is meant ia
whether teachers hnve a right to eke
out thoir incomes by, sny, keeping a
set of books during their idle hours,
or engaging as salesmen when out of
school.    This   is   a   largo,   deep,   and
broad   question, not   to bo settled off*
hand. Time was whon a man oould
do as he liked with his own. and H
vory happy and altogether satisfactory
time it. was. But in those dnys nf re-
fined theorios it is doubtful if n niuii
has a right to wink, without considering the effect of tho vibration on some
othor man in the next town   or  conn
ty.
In Nanaimo it is held that tho teacher as such is well paid, and that to
add to his income by spending his Idle
time iu othor pursuits is to take tho
bread ont of the month of some other
person. He should not put himself
into competition with others, but con-
tine himself to his own occupation,
For this he is given a generous salary
and short hours. The short hours and
the short yenr are specially designed
to afford him ample time to recuperate
his exhausted onorgies, iu order that
he may always be in condition to discharge IriB duty to his pupils.
That is the Nanaimo view of it.
Another Nanaimo View doubtless is
that everybody has a right to dispute everybody else's right to push
his way in the world in the manner
most agreeable to his oiroumstnnoes
and wishes. It is all supremely silly,
but quite in line with the advanced
socialism of the day. But to get back
to the teacher. Wo had never understood that short hours for school and
the numerous holidays were provided
out of consideration fir the tomhcr.
Wo had always supposed that these
were regulated entirely in the interests of the children. The Nanaimo discussion may settle some ttngs, hut it
is unsettling others.
The Miner respectfully but firmly disclaims an extract attributed to it in a
rocout issue of The Viotoria Times.
It does not recognise the words, nnd
therefore cannot assign them to theii
true origin. But they did not appear in The Miner. It would be as
easy for this paper as for others iu
British Columbia lo make a bid for
the favor of the multitude bv throwing up its cup for a British Columbia
mint; but. there are many things   thut
go to the props? consideration of that
question, and hoiug Iosb clover or
confident than its contemporaries it is
not yet by any means sure on all of
them,
Tho Victoria Globe has private advices from Ottawa that tho session of
Parliament which opened on Thursday
will ho the most important, iu that
it, will be tho biggest  in events,   since
Confederation, in passing through
Winnipeg .Sir Hibbert Tuppor said it
would be ono of the most important
since Confederation. There have already boon several most important sessions since confederation, and we do not
son the least reason iu the world why
there should not be another.
COOKED   THE DOG.
WILL NOT RETRACT.
i Oity Solicitor Abbott's Excuse For Being Delayed.
That wns a queer excuse City Solici-
j tur Abbott gave the city counoil lust
I evening for being late at the meeting,
1 says the KiHsland Record. His neigh
; l.or-i, Mr. and Mrs. George Richardson
had yestqrday been presented with n
I Hue blooded fox terrier pup by a
'friend. It wus taken home, and as
| Mrs. Richardson was going out in the
afternoon, she admonished the Obi-
I nose cook,in the best Chinese language
i she could command, to take good cure
I of the dog ami not lot it got away.
When sho returned in the evening,
not seeing tho adored fox terrier
about, asked John were it was. He
inurched her into the kitchen mid
showed it to her���killed, skinned,
greased nnd stuffed, all roudv for the
iveu. Tile sight was more than she
could hour. It actually made hor sick,
ind in her desperution she flew out of
the house and over to her neighbors,
Mr. and Mrs. Abbott's. When slio was
sufficiently recovered she told her
troubles.
Mr. Richardson eanie home later and
found his wife gone and the poor cook
weighed down with grief. He explained as best he could that the
"missee was much sick," and had
gone away. Not being utile to make
.int what was the trouble Mr. Richardson left the house lo search for his
wife.
At this juncture Mr. Abbott Spied
him. and called him over, when all
was explained, and this was the city
solicitor's excuse for being late at the
council meeting.

Several weeks ago the following paragraph appeared in correspondence
sent from British Columbia to The
Loudon Empire:
"This is a nice country! They tux
a man's Sunday suit and clean shirts,
aud Borne poor men who arrive here
with a few clothes and no money, not
being able to pay the duty, cannot get
their clothes through tho Customs until they have earned enough money.
This is the way Cauada treats settlors from the old country, charging
them ob per cent, of the value of their
clothes, not only on now ones but also
if thoy have not worn them for six
mouths."
The Miner took exception to the
statement, aud believing that it would
hnve an injurious effect among readers of The Empire in England asked
that journal to correct or withdraw it.
This it refuses to do. The editor
says that his correspondent would not
havo written as he did if, as a settler,
he had not been obliged to pay duty
ou the clothes he brought with him
from England. When referring to the
mutter at lirst, The Miner wns charitable enough to suppose that the correspondent had beeu made the victim
of some official irregularity; but it
will not admit as much now, and bus
no hesitation in declaring the whole
story a deliberate fubrication.
It is not true thut Canada tuxes a
settler's "Sunday suit and clean
shirts," it is not true lhat "poor men
who arrive with few clothes and no
mousy'' are obliged to work for money
enough to gvt their clothes through
the customi. Canada does not treat
settlors in that manner, nnd we doubt
if uu Instance of the kind cau be cited
even through error. If this particular
correspondent had any trouble witli
the customs ollicials, we have no doubt
whatever ho brought it upon himself
hy his own conduct. Bul trouble or
no trouble, the impression given by
the paragraph is n false ono. Thnt the
editor supports his ignorant or malicious correspondent is perhaps not surprising in the light of his own kuowl-
edge. H�� says "it is for British Co-
lumbia to set* that its cusloms officers
are honest.'' British Columbia has
no customs officers, honest or dishonest. No Canadian Province has anything to do with the collection of customs duties. That is exclusively a Fed
oral function. The charge of customs
robbery, therefore, is niude, not against
British Columbia i*ut against, Canada
In either case, however, it is false,
and we believe utterly without foundation of any kind. It would lie more
to the credit of tlie editor of Tho Empire, who professes to be "one of Canada's wurroest friends," if he  repu.li-

is turned in ono direction, the collar .
uf the crank-slmft will slido and cause
ils links to f.irce the extension plates
radially outward, as shown by dotted

the extension plates   will bn retracted.
The sprocket-chain, as indicted
in Fig. 4, consists of links, the under

four V-shaped grooves running longitudinally with the chain nnd dosig-
nated to engage tho edges of tho extension plates. When the plates nre extended in the manner before described,
they will grip the four V-shaped

Fig. li. Simultaneously with tho extension of the driving-wheel, hy means
of tl e hand-wheel, the toggle links
brtween tho rear wheel nnd the crnnk-

means of the rod pivoted to their inner ends and connected with the

around the rod-nut and the band-

vnrintious iu diameter of the. driving
wheel and tho change in position of
the rear wlieol nre compensated for.
It will be observed that the gear is
not limited in its changes to a fixed
set of spoeds, bnt that the adjusting
devices and the construction of the
driving sprocket wheel enable the bicycle to be geared to any degree within tbe two extremis.

The Arlington to be Pushed
to the Front.
DEAL MADE IN SPOKANE
One of the Most Promising Properties in
tho Slocan District���Frank Watson Does the Work.
A deal has been consummated in
Bpokane which will introduce Huston
capital into the lead district ol the Hlo-
cuii nnd will donbtless bring one (if the
promising properties of that purt of
British Columbia immediately to the
front its a great mine. The Arlington
mine is the property in question
Who the Boston capitalists tiro iH not
announced at present hut there is every
asuurnnce that the deal is a go.
The Arlington mine in one of the
richest silver properties in tin* viciuit.C
of Slocan City. It has been owned for
about two years by a Spokane company
which was organized by Frank Wat-
sou. The property comprises lite Arlington aud Burlington claims und was
located by Robert Cooper and C. E.
Fielding who have ever siuce retained
interests in it. In 1S0C John A. Finch
had the group under bond and did considerable work upon it without finding
the main lead, his tunnel, as subsequent development proved, having
been run in the wrong direction. Later
on tbe mine lay idle tor many months
until Frank Watson oame along and
after looking it over concluded that
it was oue of the richest Showings be
had ever Been aud took a bond ou it
for $50,000. Then followed the formation of the Spokane company.
The property has seen hard titties
The company was hampered for lack
of funds and the Arlington was away
up Springer creek where no road bad
ever beeu built and shipment of ore
was therefore expensive. Tlion there
were conflicting interests and dissensions among the stockholders and the
result was slow development aud a
rapidly accumniulating debt. In all
1200 feet of work was done, most of
it being accomplished under the direction of Frank Watson who was in
charge of the work when tin* wheels
wero running smoothly. This development reached a depth of 17fi feet and
opened up a wonderful body of ore
which is authentically reported to
show ISO feet in thickness. The company made shipments which yielded
2*10 ounces silver and Hi to 20 per cent.
lead. It is said that tbe oro is growing heavier in lead as depth is gained.
Last suiitniei* the coinpuiij found itself in such straits that it Itecamo necessary to give a mortgage on the
claims. The Bunk of British North
America furnished the monoy. The
mortgage was later transferred to
Boss Thompson of Bossland. Work
on the mine was almost entiroly suspended. It was when matters were
iu this tangle that Frank Watson began to work for the redemption of the
miue. He began the arduous task
seven mouths ago and has just completed it. Tho terms of the deal are
that a new company is to be formed
to be knowu as the Arlington Mines,
Limited, with headquarters, probably
in Spokane The capitalization is to be
1,000,000 shares and 760,900 shares
will go into the treasury. The remaining 350,000 shares will be issued to the
stockholders of the old company at the
rate of one share fur every four held iu
the old corporation. Thu new company assumes the mortgage aud bus
arranged to pay it and ail other outstanding debts of the old company
within UO days. The Boston people
take up sullicient of the treasury stock
to place |50,000 at once in the treasury of tho company and have
guaranteed that, the same amount
will bo forthcoming later if needed to
make a paying mine of the Arlington.
These terms have beeu agreed lo by
the unanimous vote of the stockholders of the old company present at a re
ceut meeting where 70S,000 shares of
the 813,000 shares issued were represented.
""Within iio days " a stockholder is
reported, as Haying, "work will begin
ou the Arlington with a large force of
men. The development will be upon
a large scale, with all the necessary
machiuery and lhe plans of the company include the early erection of a
concentrator. Frank Watsou paid a
visit to Viotoria lately and secured
from the Provincial Government $26oo
with which to complete the load which
tlm Government started to build up
the creek from Slooau City to the
mines. Work ou this will begiu as
soon aa spring opens up. Much credit
is due to Frank Wastou for putting
this deal thiough in the face of discouragements. The oompany has been
so torn with internal troubles that no
recoucillialiuu seemed possible and
most of us thought tbe Arlington was
a dead duck. But Watson savod He
mine although it took seven months <f
scheming and maneuvering aud
harmonizing to bring it about.''
It is rather a new thing for Boston
capital to take up silver and lead propositions. Copper Investments aro the
favorites in Ibe Massachusetts city.
But the profits which Slocau shippers
pay are attracting attention of eastern
capital nnd Bolton has made money
enough in mines to know that -t venture of this kind is safe. Those who
know the Alringtou say that the mine
will be shipping ore within six montliH
and should bogin to   pay  profits   soon
after.

Of mining operations at. the New-
Denver camp The Ledge furnishes the
following paragraphs:
Negotiations are now being carried
on with a view to securing the Tow-
Ber, a claim adjoining thu Silver Cup
group. The owners of this claim are
Dave Ferguson and Jack Kuowles.
Tho Beatrice will soon add materially to the shipments made from the
Trout Lake district. Something
over 125 tons ot high grade ore aro
now lying ou the dump awaiting
the moment when tho rawhide trail is
completed, wheu a force of seven men
will commence work, and it is expected that their operations will result in
keeping the property on a shipping
basis.
The Nettle L. will be worked steadily from this out, future operations
aiming at placiug the property in a
position to become a permanent shipper. Dan Cameron has the contract
for tho completion of a piece of tunnel which will represent a further
outlay of $1,000. The present appearance of the oro body iu the Nettie L.
justifies the claim of the owner that
it is one of the biggest things iu the
country.
One of (he most promising properties
in the camp iB tho St. Elmo. ThiB
claim together with the Yankee makes
up the St. Elmo group, whioh adjoins the Groat Northern to the northeast. During the greater part of the
wiuter, Hugh McPhersou aud Neil
Swintou have beon busily engaged
doing development work aud taking
out ore. Tbey mado a shipment some
ume ago of five tous, und the satisfactory result of 113 ounces silver,
t8 SO gold and $17.01) lead, making a
total value per ton of $85.18.
Quite recently a bond was secured by
James Dixon on the Silver Queen, a
property situated ou the Great Nortn-
t ru ledge. Mr. Dixon represents Vancouver parties, and secured coutrol of
ihe property from Jack Stabuer at tbe
following figure : $600 down, $500 ou
the 1st of Juue, JHD'.i, and $24,000 on
the 1st of ,lune, 1900, making a total
of $25,000, the amount of the bond,
'lhe Trout Lake Topic says the Silver
Cup is a line property aud is very considerably developed. A crosscut tunnel of 170 feet in length has been driven, showing up, where the vein wus
encountered, 10 inches of solid ore besides a very largo body of concentrating ore. Mr Dixon intends commencing activo operations on tbe claim
Shortly, aim it is confidently expected
tbat nuothei' shipper will be added to
Ihe list before snow flies next lull.

COMMUNICATIONS.
THE COMSTOCK CONCENTRATOR.
Editor Nelson Miner:
I hoo in rim inaao ot Tlm Tribune nf
:he 15th iust. a somewhat sensational
account of alleged troubles between
iho ConiHtock Mining Company, whose
property is on Four Mile Creek, and
Thomas Mitchell, who recently erected
n concentrator for tho Company. The
key of the concentrator was indeed
taken p ssession of by Mitchell for a
short, time,und held by him under oit-
i-umstances which it would take too
long to explain ; but it is now, uud ox-
i opt for a few hours has been, in the
possession of the Company, wbo ure at
present drawing ore from the mine to
iho mill and concentrates from the
mill to the wharf here. Tho third
payment on the conrracl. price has beon
paid to an*I accepted by the contractor,
less a small deduction retained by the
company until certain defects will be
remedied by the contractor. There 1b
also a dispute between the Company
and the contractor as to whether the
mill has been doing its work as efficiently as it should, but that is not an
issue between them, yet 'it least, ��� s
this is only being enquired into. Nothing has yet developed between ih * Com
pany and the contractor to cause snch
an atri'-le to be written as lhat which
appeared in the columns of your content rorary. A. B. C.

CALGARY '*������*>   ABATTOIR.
On his return to Calgary from the
Kast, Mr. P. Burns confirmed tbe report thut he intended to build a large
cold storage and slaughter house at
that place. The Daily Herald says:
"Wben it is considered that this linn
supplies the entire Koolenay country,
and also ships to Coasi 'ties it will
be easily understood lhat tin* imposed
plant will he quite cxtensn . Tho
buildings will he of the latebt and
most approved plan. Both the cold
storage and slaughter house will be
i-quiped with up to dale appliances
Ihe pay roll will be quite considerable,
which will benefit Calgary, and the
buildings will be a benefit to our city.
The industry will be om* of the
most important in rho West. Work
���ylil be commenced as soon as tho
weather permits. Mr. Burns while
Kast visited thi! larger packing houses
and examined tin* different methods of
operating then..'"
