The members of No. 2 company, Oth
regiment:.Booky Mountain . Rangers
will parade at the armory Thursday
and Friday evening. iof tbis week.at 8
p. m. sharp for tbe purpose of drill in
connection with the memorial parade
of Her .Majesty the late Queen, No
uniform will be worn at these, parades.
No excuse other than sickness or
absence from the city will be accepted for. the absence of any man from
the parades.
At last ni'iht's session of the city
council the mayor was authorized to
ereot a platform on the recreation
grounds for Saturday's service. It
was moved by Aldermen Irving, and
Glllett, and unanimously resolved,
that the council attend the service in
a body,, and that the city hall be appropriately draped. The oity fathers
are to assemble at the office on Sutui-
day morning at 11:30 o'clock. J
It has been suggested, and'tho suggestion will, probably: bo acted upon,
that a subscription be taken up, next
Saturday on tho occasion of the! memorial parade, the proceeds of winch
will be devoted to the establishment
and endowment of a Victoria bed In
the Kootenay Lake General 'Hospital.
It is thought that, sufficient funds
for the purpose could easily' be raised
on the. occasion, and that it might be
the..beginning of. a Victoria .ward
later on.
There were several eloquent, panegyrics on our - deceased monarch
preached In Nelson churches Sunday.
In accordance wiih a circular letter
from the bishop to. the clergy,Of the
dioceses of.New Westminster audi Kootenay, ..special, psalms, , lessons and
hymns were used at both services in
St. Saviours.', church, on Sunday. The
church had been suitably draped in
purple and black which together, with
tbe appropriate changes In.the regular order of tho services, and the
orowded congregations made., a most
solemn snd Impressive effect. . At
both services the Rev. II.. S. Akuhurst
referred to the solemn event , uppermost in the thoughts of all anil at the
close tbo .organist played.the DtadJ
March. The necessary alterations in
the.state prayers having been formally
authorized by the bishop of,.the dlo-
oeae, tbo prayers, of,the congregation
were offered In behalf of His' Majesty
King Edward VII. ..our, Gracious
Queen Alexandria, the i Duke and
Duchess of. Cornwall and' York,, and
all tha royal family. At tho morning
service takung for his text St Matt.
XXV. 34, tbe rector said at the close
of his sermon: j
"Today my.brethern, our 'thoughts
must naturally, dwell upon the memory of her fou. whom on Sunday last
wo were offering up to God our Mr-
nest prayers, trusting that Jo II la in-,
finite. w,lsdouii the life iof our. beloved
Queen Victoria might be .spared to us,
It has, however, pleased Him to take
ber to Himself and dear as she had
become to us and all, her people , we
cannot but feel that her end was such
as she would herself have desired���removed from earth almost in the .midst
of active work���up to within- a few
days of the end able to perform the
duties of her queenly office. Great
Britain today, the whole of our empire, indeed we may justly say the
���whole world, mourn the loss of the
best of rulers,- the best of women,
the best of mothers, the best of
friends. ,
"On Saturday next, in common
with the rest of the empire, it will be
our solemn and blessed privilege and
duty to stand as it were on the brink
of an openjgrave to mingle, our tears
of sorrow with those of onr.King, and
royal family to whom U��r Majesty's
death must have been the keenest of
blows and to whom the heartfelt, sympathy of a loyal nation is lovingly
"On that solemn occasion we shall
recall more fully the noble life tbat
has just passed away.with its sorrows
and joys, its lesson and hopes.- Today
we would simply give expression to
the sorrow that is ours, and thank
God for a great and shining example
of what the life of a Christian sovereign may and should be���the example
of one who living for over sixty years
in the fierce glare of light that beats
upon every throne has shown that it
is possible to unite wisdom and greatness, power and tiches and all tbe
pomp and majesty, of an earthly court
with the graces and virtues of a God
fearing, God serving woman���an example that will long be remembered
by a grateful and loving people, and
one that we believe has not'been lost'
upon him who now fllla her place and
for whom we shall ever pray.
"It perhaps Is not too much to say
that throughout the empire she loved
and served so well, among high and
low, rich aud poor, learned and unlearned, the memory of Queen Vic-
| toria's reign will ever remain] asone
Of the nations most priceless possessions."

C.P.R. High Freight Rates and
Lack of Market the
The St. ' Eugone concentrator was
closed down this week, says the Moyie
Leader, and 160 men out of the i 870
employed, at the mine were laid. off.
Manager Cronin, who returned from
California a few days ago, when seen
yesterday said that the shutdown
would be for an indefinite time. The
company has finished its conttuct and
has not signed any renewals. The
shutdown is due to several causes,
amongst, which is the difficulty of the
American smelters In obtaining dty
ores for fluxing, purposes i and the excessive freight charges over the Canadian Pacific railway. . This renders
it impossible for the American smelters to treat the Canadian silver-lead
ores at a profit, therefore they refuse
to renew their oontracts with the
mines on this side of the line. As tho
smelters in British Columbia are unable to handle the ores of the district,
the silver-lead, mine owners find themselves with out a market for their product.
It Is expeoted that tbe Dominion
government will take some action at
Ottawa this winter to have the freight
rates on the 0. P, R. reduced. Here
Is an Illustration of. their treatment
towards the. mine owners. The C. P.
R. charges 88 per ton on oro between
Moyi�� aud CroBtoii, a distance Of fill
miles,-while the Great Northern hauls
the same ore between Cruston and
Great Falls, Mont., a . distance of 200
miles for 83, per ton.
Mr. Cronin estimates that the returns on ore now Is (12 per ton less
than It was. a year, and ��� a ���- half, ago.
Ho ustlinatcB Bi) per ton on freight, $4
per ton on labor (oauscd by the difference between the eight and tea hour
shifts) and 82 per ton in the fall In
the price of lead. .To.the present output of the St. Eugene mine this menus
a difference ot 81,200 per day or 830,-
000, per month.
Berlin, Jan. 2U.��� Tho announcement
of the appointment .of Emperor William as n Held marshal! In the Brttlsh
trmy has been received by the press
with comparatively' little comment.
Notwithstanding   the   Kaiser's   wish
that the anniversary of bis birthday
should not ho.observed, many celebrations occurred yesterday. in . different
parts of Ueiinany.
| London,. Jan. 28.���It was.officially
announced late this afternoon that
King Edward had ordered Saturday
to be observed as a day of general
mourning. All the banks will, be
dosed , aud business suspended. | The
arrangements for the funeral have
been only partially determined. .Almost everything thus tar is provisional and subject to the approval of the
King who will-come to London tomorrow to look over what has been
proposed and to, give his decision.
By order of the King, the office of
public works directs that all draperies
displayed by citizens shall be of purple. The procesSlbn from St.George's
chapel royal, at Windsor, to Frog-
more has been abandoned and the
coffin will remain in the chapel .until
the dav of interment whloh will probably be Monday.  ��� .

Count von Wedel, master of horse, to
bring six of his majesty's charters
from Berlin, and tbe Kaiser, the
crown prince and the other Germans
In official attendance ut the funeral
will ride in the procession. Hie gun
carriages to be used at Cowes and
Windsor and In Loudon will be painted the color of khaki and fitted with
rubber tires.

A. Forestier, the Well known artist
ot .Black and. White, to draw the lying in state for him. The King and
Queen, with the Kaiser, will attend
the memorial sevrice in St.: George's
chapel, Windsor, on Sunday.
A supplement of the official gazette
this afternoon announces., that it is
not desirable that the public wear
deep . mourning after March 0, but
that half mourning. should be , worn
until April 17. There has been a
strong ou tor v from manufacturers and
merchants at a prolonged: period of
mourning. The dealers regarded tht
first edict with dismay, and wide*
spread injury to the ooloned goods
trade, In many cases actual ruin, was,
anticipated. Following the precedent of 17(IH when the merchants petitioned George III. to ourtail the, period of mourning, trade circles in the
United Kingdom had . already started
a petition to King.Edward . VJI. beg-'
ging bim to limit tbe period of national mourning. On previous - ���occasions.the.King, as Friuoo Of Wales,
used.his influence, in this direction
and now, as King, he has assorted his
well known opposition to the obaerv
ancu of long periods of official mourn
-Practically all business will be

Another Debenture Issue and a Paid Fire
Department Among the Important
Plans of the Council for
the New Year.
Applications are Now Being
Received by Lieutenant
Reorulting at Nelson for the South
African Constabulary commenced yesterday, Lieutenant Rear having, at last
received ��� the enlistment forms from
district headquarters. Mr/ Beer, is located at Thurroan's tobacco-store and
information regarding ,the service
can bo obtained there. * Tho. .enlistment forms filled out yesterday were
comparatively few in number but it
is safe - to predict that during the
next few days a number of volunteers
will present themselves.
The conditions of service In the
constabulary are quite as favorable as
was anticipated. No particular
standard of weight and height Is laid
down, the authorities apparently de-
siring likely young fellows who could
be trained to their duties on the
ground. The applications for enlistment arc to be made in the applicants' awn handwriting and as questions are asked as to the applicants'
knowledge Of languages it is evident
tbat the educational standard Is.to be
much higher than Is usually the osso
I In ordinary military life. Prefei-
ence Is given to cnndldates who have
seen previous service, those who have
already served In Africa having tho
first choice.
Captain Fall of Strathcona's Horse
Is reorulting officer in Canada for tbe
new corps and the applications tor enlistment arc tq go into his hands. Later this officer notifies tbe, most promising candidates to incit him for the
purpose of being finally accepted and
attested. From the date of acceptance
to date of. arrival In Afr'ca the pay
will bo 24 cents a day with expenses.
On arriving In Africa the scale of
pay Is very much more liberal than
In any other branch of military service, being ss follows l

The Canadians aro to be taken on as

this position they arc   eligible to promotion   throng'1   the  various grades

A 8100,000 debenture issue, a paid
fire department, an isolation hospital,
and a new office for the city lighting
system were among the matters-decided, upon by the city fathers in a two-
hour session last nigh*. These questions have been under consideration
by the committees and when they
came up the council agreed -tbat the
time wai ripe for. action. Other points
of more than ordinary interest, came
up at the meeting.
Tbe finance committee's report contained clauses as follows:
Your committee recommend tbat the
necessary steps be taken for tbe collection of all outstanding accounts due
to tbe city.
That an accountant and collector
be appointed at a salary of sno per
That the salary of W. E. Waason,
city treasurer, be increased to 8100
pur month.
Having considered the estimates of
the probable revenue and expenditure for the current year, we recommend that 8100,000 be raised.by 1 tbe
issue of debentures .bearing interest
at r> per .cent, redeemable in 20 years
and that by law No.'s 68. 60, 70,' 71,
and 72, which authorized the issue
cf debentures to the . amount of 876,-
000 but which debentures have ! not
been sold, be repealed and the debentures cancelled.
We recommend that the collection
of scavenger rates be placed in the
hands of the foreman of the health department.
The report was .considered by
clauses and adopted.
Tbe public works committee's report contained the following recommendations:
That the oity engineer, take steps
to clear the sewer outlets and that
200 feet of rivetted steel pipe he,purchased for an extension to the eastern
outlet; that when the city weigh scale
is moved its new location bo at the
northwest corner of Ward and Vernon
streets; that a temporary catch basin
be placed at the corner of 'Josephine
street nnd the lane in block 331 thai
J. A. Sherling'B-application foi water
connections to block 34 be granted;
that two copies of Goad'B map ot Nelson be purchased for the use of the
Oity engineer's Office; that the macadamizing of llaker street in front of
the K.-W.-O. block be completed and
that a crossing be put in at onee.
The report was adopted .with the
exception ol I the clause relating to
the weigh scales, whloh-was referred
back to the committee on the recommendation of Alderman Hamilton
who believes a more suitable location
can be secured than tbo one set down
in tho report.
The report of the new committee on
fire, water and light was brief but
covered a lot of ground. Their reoom-
mendation were as follows: That a
competent, practical electriolan bese-
curcd as superintendent of the electric
light department and that James Mo-
Phec be appointed to the position;
that the council engage a paidlliade
partment and install an . efficient Are
alarm system as soon as practicable;
that meters - be placed In buildings
where watermotors, beer pomps and
other large consumers of water arc
situated ; that the regulator valve be
moved from the corner of Mill and
Hcndryx to Cedar and Caibonate
stiects so that persons residing above
the present location can seoure mifllel'
ent pressure. The fire brigade cleust
was referred back to the comaiittei
at the coalmen's request and that
of water meters went to the oity engineer for consldoiation. The balance of the report was carried. Later
resolution was carried making
James McPhec's .salary slUII per
'Jin. resolutions passed at the board
oi health, -meeting on Wednesday last
were read to the council. It was re
solved that the mayor should be,, authorized to apply to the government
for a site for the   proposed   building.
In regard to the bringing of corpses
into the city the following was introduced as Bylaw No hi; and twice read.
Alderman Hamilton occupying tbe
ohair in committee of the whole:
A bylaw to amend the health bylaw,
Whereas-it is deemed expedient for
the preservation of the public health,
and for providing against the spread
of contagious or infectious diseases,
or disease of a malignant character
in the city of Nelson that some restriction should be placed on the conveying, bringing or carrying by any
.means,,of corpses into tbe city of Nelaon.
Therefore, the municipal council of
the corporation of the City of Nelson
in council assembled .enacts as follows'.
1. Section 10 of bylaw . 75 of the
bylaws of the City of Nelson being
"Health bylaw, lOOO" is hereby
amended, by, adding at the end thereof
.the following words: ' 'And no per-
[son or corporation shall, without the
consent of the medical health officer
for .the time being, of the City of Nelson, bring, carry or convey any corpse
into the City of Nelson unless,such
corpse is accompanied by a certificate
from a duly qualified medical prac-
tlctioner, health officer or coroner,
showing that the death of the person
whose corpse is being so brought, carried or conveyed, was not oauaed by
any contagious, infectious or malignant disease, wbich certificate shall
be filed with the medical health officer, for the time being, of the City of
Nelson and shall form a part of tbe
records of his nffioe.
An application was made from the
Electric Dispatch and 'Messenger company for an agreement as to the use
of the city's poles. The matter was
left open for a week.
* The appointment ofW. J. Thompson as sanitary inspector wus rescinded and Thomas Symes appointed to
the vacancy. ' This was done to expedite the handling of the sanitary department's business.
Tbe council decided that nothing
could be done for S, ' T. Jones, an unfortunate Englishman who is destitute and apparently not as bright as
could be desired.
The council, at which the mayor
and all tbe aldermen were present,
then adjourned.

Arrangements have been made for
a memorial service and procession
next Saturday, the day of tho funeral
of our dead Queen. All the churches
will take part in the service, and all
the fraternal societies have been
asked to join the procession. This is
as it should be at a time when an united nation is mourning a common
loss, and those in charge are to be
congratulated upon their work. It is
to be hoped that the citizens in general will be present in large numbers
for it is practically impossible that

Last Sunday the differences of creed
and dogma were forgotten, and there
was but one theme in the various
churches of Nelson. All paid a tribute to the long, useful and blameless
life of our dead, but still beloved,
sovereign, Queen Victoria. Else-
whore will be found excerpts from
some of the tributes referred to. All
breathe the same spirit. All bear the
same testimony. Canadian loyalty,
always fervent, and but lately proved
in South Africa by the severest of all
tests, was well voiced on Sunday in
our city among the western mountains, and one more proof was afforded of that unity of spirit which is
the invincible strength of the greatest
empire tbe world bas seen.

We reprint today an interview
with Mr. James Cronin, manager of
the St. Eugene mine, from the Moyie
Leader. From this it would appear
that the high freight rates charged
by the C. P. R. constitute one of the
principal reasons why the St. Eugene concentrator has been closed
down. Mr. Bliickstock was quoted
the other day as saying that the C. P.
R. oharged rates that were only low
enough to permit his syndicate's
mines to pay the cost of mining, but
swallowed up all the profits. The
truth of this statement, we are not
in a position to determine,but if it be
true, Mr. Cronin seems to be going
the right way to work. The C. P. R.
has invested immense sums of money
in railroad construction in the Kootenays, and naturally desires a revenue
therefrom. Thus if they cannot get
what they ask, they v> ill take what
they can. In any case the trouble
should not be of long duration. The
St. Eugene mine is quite rich enough
to afford a good profit to all concerned, and In such matters business men
are apt to arrange things by a speedy
compromise. Especially when, as Is
the case with the mines and the railroads, the interests of the two are
really Identical.
DR. MORRISON, Dentist, has removed to his new offices in the
K.-W.-C. Block.

Nelson has innumerable advantages
as a residential centre, but has n
great drawback in the multitude of
Its dogs. "Both mongrel, puppy,
whelp and hound, and cur of low
degree"���chiefly the lutter���haunt Its
streets. The aforementioned curs
bark at horses and street cars, hy
which they are only too occasionally
run over, investigate the warns on
the aldo walks outside grocery stores,
and make night hideous with untimely and causeless howllngs. Hundreds
of these brutes, apparently without
homo, name, pedigree or tug, rouin
about the city. Whenever a big cur
with leisure meets a little ono without friends there Is a fight, and more
noise and confusion ensues,
Occasionally someone gets exasperated and goes to the altogether un-
justlHublo extreme   of   putting   down
, poison,   It is no good. Valuable dogs
take it and die, hut the cur, made
wise by his dully Inspections of swill
barrels and refuse heaps, CHcupes unscathed and trots off with a yelp of
triumph to fresh deeds of depredation
and annoyance. The matter is a
difficult one, for these curs Increase
and multiply most amazingly, flourishing where any self respecting canine would die. We would suggest,
however, that the council give orders
for the rigid enforcement of tho dog
bylaw at the earliest possible moment.
Let nil dogs, for whom no license has
been paid, and who do not wear
��� figs, be eiiptuiod and promptly slain

j Minor Operations Against the Insurgents Still Continue.
' Manila, Jan. 38.���Cailles camp near
San Antonio was surprised and attacked on Friday by a detachment o!
the 15th infantry. The insurgents escaped but a score of houses were destroyed. Detachments of the Fourth
infantry and the Fourth and Sixth
cavalry with a platoon of marines
bave captured a hundred and forty insurgents and Ladrones in Gavite province. Twenty wire repairers were
attacked recently south of San Pablo
by 300 insurgents, half of them armed
with rifles. Two Americans were
wounded and one was captured but
was subsequently rescued by reinforcements of the 40th brigade. One
native was killed, seven wounded and
several were captured.
Valles, late ohief of police of the
island of Cebu, who has been in hiding since August on account of hJB
activity in the insurgents' interests,
has taken his family to Hong Kong.
The other Cebu police have been compelled to swear allegiance or be deported. They bave chosen the former.
Minor insnrgent activity continues
in Cebu and Rethol. General McArthur
' this evening received and addressed
the Eleventh oavalry. He highly complimented the troopers, who are the
only cavalry volunteers  in   the army.
Often children are tortured with
itching and burning eczema and other

embolism, a complication occasionally witnessed in connection with severe fractures made its appearance.
Fat from inside and around the broken bones found its way into the patient's circulation and clogged the
smaller arteries, producing well known
symptoms, the principal of which
-was unconsciousneBs. From this time
Russell's condition was regarded as
hopeless and death wns expected at

All Dr. Coulture *s Charges Have Been
Successfully Combated.
New York, Jan. 28.���The application by Dr. Charles L. Coulture for
an injunction restraining the supreme
couit of the Independent Order of
Foresters from continuing certain extravagant practices, and from interfering by threats or otherwise with
the plaintiff, his attorney or-witnesses
in prosecuting certain actions brought
by him, was today denied by Justice
Blanchard in the supreme court. Dr.
Coulture also claimed the organization was practically insolvent and had
expended over 8400,000 in collecting
an income of 82,500,000 last year.
The defendants denied all the allegations of mismanagement and ^bowed tbat the order had jaow -.170,000
members in the. United States ��� and-
Canada and a surplus of'84,000,000.
Another of Dr. Corulfcura's charges
was that the aesoedation..declined, to
accept black or yellow,men as- members while it had elected as its-Supreme Chief Ranger a Mohawk Indian..
The defendants, in .����ly:.to Hthls,.
said that Dr. Oronhyatokha-w*�� a full'
blooded Mobawk Ind*��n,*wno-..*wasia
licentiate of the Ontario*Mediouloorun-
cil, an under graduate of Oxford University, England, a graduate of Toronto University, and was -last year
the president of tbe National Fraternal Congress of America. He had been
at the head of the order since 1891
when it had only 369 members, and
had sinoe been engaged in building up
the association, while Dr. Coulture
now seemed to be employed in, an endeavor to destroy it, -if he possibly
could do so. Justice Blanohard, -in
denying the motion for the injunction, said that all the allegations
charging maladministration of the defendants and the doubtful solvency of
the order bad been fully met. He de
nied the motion without costs.
