MOLDED TIME
King Edward's Accession Is
Loyally Received
By All.
Striking Tributes to the Dead
Queen from Foreign
Nations.
London, Jan. 26.���Barring the dis
Illusions caused by a few modern
embellishments such as railways,England this week might be imagined to
be in the tenth instead of the twentieth oentury, Noblea and local- offl-
olels, arrayed in archaic costumes
with ancient symbols of office in all
cities and towns, have everywhere
been performing the olden rites pertaining to the accession of a sovereign. Placards printed in quaint type
and quainter Shakespearian language, proclaiming Edward VII. King
of tbe United Kingdom of Cheat lit-it-
ain and Ireland, and Emperor of India, are surrounded by open mouthedi
crowds a�� they bave been in centuries
past, reading aa eagerly as though
tbey-had not already readjln the newspapers the proclamation. Anyone
crediting the English with republican
tasnte-aaieS must be convinced by the
present demonstration of the absolute
loyalty of the whole people to the
monarchy.
Tnoosands of columns of editorials1
of every political shade, save a few of
the Irish publications, contain no hint
of dissatisfaction with the new King
Edward; only confidence and good
Wane*. No monarch ever took the
throne so strongly supported. The
same good feeling towards Edward
VtV pervadea Europe. Only the Par-
laia* aad a few Russian papers attack
him. The tributes to the dead Queen
fttwuura of good feeling on- the
part of the English toward their sister nations. However Emperor Will-
Urn's filial conduct in his abandonment of the celebration of the bi
eawtaanlal of the Prussian monaiohy
has dons much to strengthen the- An-
gJo-Gennas alliance,while the tribute
Of the Boer prisoners at Capetown

Queen's funeral softens the animosities Ot WB��. ���
The proolamatloB at the-Cross of
Edinburgh, whore Waiter Scott from'
the window of Constable's bookshop
sawOeorgelV. proclaimed,was no less
brilliant than the London pageant.
Heralds and pursuivants ascended the battlements and the octagon
turret. After reading, the castle guns
aaltrted and tile rloota sang, "Ood Save
the King." The ceremony was repeated at the gate of the oastle and
at the Stuart's palace of Holyrood, at
th* ' town boundary. The city offl-
eials, the university professors and
tb* local soldiery were in tli�� procession, which took place In a snowstorm.
In the meantime the government
will probably ask parliament to Increase tbe sovereign's allowance to
- half I a million on account of the in-
srtssing pecuniary demands upon the
office. Queen Victoria's allowance
wanSxed' nt the beginning of bar
reiga at 4880,008, partly defrayed by
the orown estates. The cost to the
���ation was JWD.OOO.
A new edition of the prayer book

London,- Jap. 20.���The King, In his
message to the navy whloh was ordered to be read upon all Bhlps,thanks
th* navy for Its -renowned services
daring hlsuaothor's reign. The message concludes with an expression of
confident reliance upon the unfailing
loyalty of 'the navy to him, Similar
sentiments are promulgated In an
army order. 1Mb snggcsu.l. by some
obsoivers tbat the King in those communications Is taking somewhat the
tone of Emperor William.
JAMAICA IS LOYAL,,
Kingston. Ja., Jan.  26.- King- Edward VII.   was today  publicly  pro*

WHO FODLOW TO THE GRAVE:
London, Jan. 20.��� The probable order of the procession on the day of- the
late Queen Victoria's funeral is as

will be Interspersed in the column
and at its head there will be a flring,|
party. Preceding the cortege, military bands will play the dead march.
The standards will ait be draped.
AUSTIN*S: FEEBLE EFFORT.
London, Jan.. 10.���The genius of the
poet laureate, Alfred Austin, fell to
the lowest tide in the hsstily turned
out poem which appeased the day after the Queen's death. It is long, commonplace and of faulty metre. A
great outburst- of poetry is flooding
the papers, in whloh tb* unnoteworthy
effort of Austin is the only oonapicu-
ous poem yet printed.
VERDI IS DEAD.
Great Italian Composer   Passed Away
at Milan.
Milan, Jan. 27.���Verdi died at  2:80
o'clock tbis morning.
Milan, Jan. 20,-10 IB p.' m.���The
doctors are aatounded that Verdi1 Ib'
still alive. Several times a suspension
of breathing gave the Impression* that
he had expired, but slowly animation
returned, and' Verdi lifted his arm as
though be wished to unbutton his
shirt collar, The pope has telegraph'
ed to inquire whether- Verdi bad received "the last sacraments. Intense
Interest is shown in the condition | of
the composer throughout Italy and
theorowda assembled to read the bulletins, which ara posted' la the music
stores In most of the towns.
THE POPE ON SOCIALISM.
abort Digest of tho Pontiff'. Latest
Encyclical.
Roma, Jan. 20.��� The pope'a enoy
elieal on socialism was issued today.
It is dated' January ' im and says that
a distinction Must bo carefully drawn
between socialism and tbe movement
among Catholics which resulted In his
previous eneyelloal on- social' questions, whloh Is called Christian dSin-
Kicraoy. The drat only conoerns Itself
with material wealth and social
equality,whereas Christian democracy,
while seeking material amelioration,
has spiritual amelioration, also in
view. The pontiff concludes with exhorting Catholics to inspire themselves with these principle* and to
Inculcate them. They must nrge the
people and workmen to ehun everything invested with a seditious* er rev-
olutionsrv cbaraoter, respect the
rights of others, be respectful lo their
masters and ooserre sseredly their religious practices. Thus. will social
peace again become flourishing
throughout the world;
BUT QKEvTOFIG
m GEMAirr:
Queen Victoria's Death and
King Edward's Leanings
are Discussed.
Beers Accept from Germany
What They Refuse from
Britain.
Berlin, Jan. 20.���The death of
Queen Viotorla has made a profound
impression upon the German public
mind, overshadowing for a time every
other topic The newspapers and
other periodicals without exception
have devoted an enormous amount of
space thereto, and also tb her successor and to Anglo-German relations.
Tbe-Kreute Zeltung revives the passage in Prince Bismarck's memoirs
where tbe prince's first meeting at
Versailles in 1855, with tho Prince eon-
sort and Queen Victoria is entertainingly decrlbed, Prince Bismaick saying
tbe Prince consort treated him haughtily, as a political opponent and pro-
| Russian reactionary while the Queen,
though evidently regarding him in a
Similar light, spoke pleasantly
throughout.
] - The opinion that 'the Queen's death
Was precipitated by Field Marshall
Earl Robert's frank avowal regarding
the South African war is here generally held, but small hope is Indulged in
that King Edward's influence will be
etrerted to bring about peace on teams
leaving tbe Boers their- independence. The general1 opinion of King
Edward is divided; Though a few regard him as a Qermano-phile and
agrarian, others are outspokenly anti-
English in their criticism.
The Reichstag, (where the attendance was again minimal through tho
week),found fault with tbe Count von
I'osadoWsky Wehners" regimo as secretary of the interior. This wnsespect-
ally the case with tbe socialists aud
members ot the Ftelzennlge party
so that the secretary's salary has not"
yet been appropriated.' The only
things besides - this, accomplished
wan tbe debate on tbs pension bill of
the China forces whloh the-govern'
ment estimates at 3,741,040 marks',
the widow of a general to receive 5,-
000 marks* against a private's 400
marks.
The correspondent of the Associated Press learns that the conditions Imposed by the German government upon Dr. Hcndrlk M-uller, who is negotiating for the emigration of Boers to
German South West Africa, includes
the defence of the territory agalnat
internal and external' foes, the sending of tbeir children to school, where
German is taught, and tbe children
barn to tbcm in South West Africa
must become' Germans- politically.
These conditions have been accepted
and there will be a number of treks
after this, the first, a small one, on
the coming Tuesday.

Fatal Accident in  a Boxing  Bout  at
Harvard Collage.
Cambridge, Mass.,' Jan. 20,���Curtis
Crane of Brooklyn, was accidentally
killed during a boxing match with his
closest friend,' G. R. Ainsworth, in
the hitter's room id Craigle, Harvard
College, this evening. There were a
number of Harvard' students present
at the time indulging in friendly
matches and the knock out blow was
unexpected. Circumstances are' best
explained by the following statement
by Ainsworth i
"At 3:35 this afternoon I was sparring with Mr. Crane, We had sparred
about three minutes when I touched
Mr. Crane witb the back of my glove
upon tbe face. He.sank back against
the mantel-piece and to tbe hearth.
He was unconscious. A doctor was
sent for and arrived in eight minutes.
Wer'worked on him for- half an hour,
when another physician arrived. Both
doctors pronounced. him dead. The
medical examiners were sent for and
the police were notified. (Signed,)
George R. Ainsworth."     *
Mr. Ainsworth is a sophomore in
the Lawrence scientific school. Mr.
Orane was not a student, but lived
next door to Ainsworth in Brooklyn.
Those present io the room at the
time all agree In saying that the blow-
struck by -Ainsworth was not a heavy
one, aad its 'delivery Would not have
sufficed ��� even to have ^.knooked out
Crane... Tbe poMce will take-no.ac-
tion until after the autopsy opinion'
Ib announced. Soon' after the tact of
the accident had* been*' spread around
the college it was thought that' I the
victim was a Harvard freshman coming of the same family' name, whose
home Ib in Chicago.

(SPECIAL, TO THE! MINEiB.)
Kimberley, Jan. 24.���Kimberley,
like most of tbe western mining
towns, is being disturbed by the prevailing epidemic which has been diagnosed'as "freight rates" and as a result the North Star Mining Co., have
ceased shipping since the New Year.
The Sullivan Mining Co. hafe been
shipping steadily all along, with the
exception of a few days when they
stopped shipping on account of repairs at the mine. It ib understood
that a fresh contract has been arranged between this company and the
smelter people, the terms of which are
exceedingly more favorable than the
old expired contract.
The freight charges on oiefrom this
town alone, when the North Star and
Sullivan mines were both shipping
umounted to from 825,000 to $30,000
per month, this, of course is now di
mlnished to less than half. This
would pay interest on a pretty nice
little capital which would build half
a dozen smelters, sites for which tbis
section of East Kootenay abounds in,
water power' ad lib., lime in abundance and dry ores in plenty, only
needing a little expenditure to make
transportation easier, when their
deposits will be brought to  tbe fiont.
Almost adjoining the North Star
Mining Company's property Charles
Theies of Spokane lias been working
upon a property known as the Dean
and Allove, on whloh he has a bond.
This-work has been going on all
winter, and has been conducted principally by means of the diamond drill
under the operation of Messrs. Iloyles
Bros., of Spokane. Work has temporarily stopped on these properties on
account of the extreme cold, it being
found impossible to make satisfactory
progress with the drill as directly
anything occurred to create a pause
in the operations, everything froze
up. Mr. TheisS before leaving stated that he' was extremely satisfied
with the discoveries be had made and
expects to resume operations as soon
as the weather moderates as he has
the greatest faith In tho property.
The coming season will see a great
deal of mining done on the Sullivan
bilinear Kimberley, as apart from
tbe Sullivan mine, a group of claims
adjoining this property bas just been
bonded to the New Ooldtields of British Columbia, for the consideration of
815,000, and negotiations ore now be
Ing made for acquiring several other
groups in tbe immediate vicinity of
this property, by the same corporation, terms of whloh are not yet
known, but the figures arc said to   be
large.
...
Rossland, Jan. 20.���The block at
the Northr.ort smelter has at present
been but little modified, and as this
is the case the shipments from the Lo
Rol group oan not be expected to
reach the tonnage anticipated. In
addition tbe Trail smelter difficulty
with the War Eagle and Centre Star
is yst unsettled, which Is another
factor in the causes standing In tin-
way of Increased output. It will,
however, be noted that even under
the present circumstances the mines
are shipping at the rate of flfio.ooo
tons a year, and as tbe difficulties alluded to cannot stand In the way beyond a narrowly ciroumscrtbed period, this quantity should he Increased
by the' time, tbe year begins lo approach its end.
Tbe present trouble at North port
would seem to be the switoh tunning
up at the back of the smelter grounds
for the accommodation of the Le Rol
ore. This switch has been graded
but thete are about ooo feet of trestle
work to be built up before cars can be
run In. Up to the present only two
carloads of 8x8 timber have been tc-
eelved, and tbe remainder is Indefinitely on the way. The railway oil!
olals are rising to the situation, but
one washout or subsidence of the
track after  another, especially In the
neighborhood of Hendrick's cut, four-'
teen miles below Nurthport, has
greatly hampered the work of the engineers. Upon the present outlook It
would thus seem that before work at
the smelter can get down to a regular
basis the whole of February will bave
slipped away. On the other band,
the War Eagle management Is improving the gravity tramway so that
when everything ib arranged this will
not prove a stumbling block In the
way of increasing the output. The
work done bo far upon the War Eagle
has been very encouraging, and there
is little doubt but that the present
rate of SOU tons per week will be increased. The output for the week,
7,067 tons, is the biggest this year, and
approaches within 400 tons, the record for the camp, made last September. The Le Roi Is still not shipping
up to the average maintained during
the last six months of 1000, and, in
fact, only averages 600 tons per working day. The Le Roi No 2 has shipped enough to keep the bins clear and
no more. The Velvet has shipped
throughout the week, and it is a -material help in the gross output,
though, of course, the rate of shipping will increase materially as facilities get better.
Appended is a list of the   shipments
for the past   week   and   the   year  to
date:

Two cars of plant forwarded by
FraBer & Chalmers, the Chicago machinery people,on a rush order for the
May and Jennie property were unloaded yesterday at Granite Biding.
The maohmery will be teamed to
tne mill site this week. A special
feature of the May and Jennie mill
will be tho anvil blocks upon wbiob
the mortars will rest. "Ordinarily mills
have wooden blocks, but an improvement has been made by substituting
solid cast iron blocks, two in number
and weighing 6% tons each. Each
block tests upon a concrete foundation, and the point attained is the exclusion of vibration in the greatest
degree possible and a consequent Increase, in crushing power per stroke,
estimated at 20 per oent.
So far as The Miner is aware these
are the first iron anvil blocks used
in British Columbia, although Eraser
tit. Chlamers adopted the principle for
the 500 stamps installed In the Alaska
Treadwoll mill about three years ago.
A sawmill Is now being set up at
the May and Jennie, tbe power for
which will be furnished by a flume
and pipe line. The grading for the
flume is under way. About 40 men
are employed on the property, 30 of
whom are engaged on the mill and
lluiiic work.

Mr. Shaughnessy Disappointed With Increase of Output of Ore.
President Shaughnessy, of the C. P.
R.,interviewed at Winnipeg on Thursday, referred to the questiou of the
sale of the Trail smelter. In reply to
the query as to who is now tbe owner
of the smelter, the president said:
"The C. P. R. compaoy still retain
possession of the mucker and reports
tbat It has been sold are unfounded.
It la certainly true tbat the smelter
has been placed on the market and
for these reasons: The C. P. R. purchased the smelter as an experiment
and to bring about a cheaper handling of fie products of the mines in
the vicinity, both in transportation
and the treating of them. We were
made to understand that the then
proprietor, Heinze, was asking too
much. They asked us for cheaper
rates and we were willing to do this
but had nothing -to guard against an
increase in smelting charges. We
took over tbe smelter and built a rail*
road. Tbe original charges were, I believe, 111.50 per ton. We reduced tbat
to 88.50, including treating and
freight, and again reduced it down
to 80.50 per ton. We were told that
when this was brought about the output from the mines would be about
3,500 tons per day. It has never been
more than 700 bo far as I know, and
when a further reduotion in our
charges was asked for, we decided to
put baok the smelter on the market
and let the mine owners see if they
could get cheaper rates than we were
able to give. This is the whole
matter."
"It Is reported tbat Mackenzie &
Mann bave outbid tbe Gooderham-
Blackstook syndieate," said the reporter.
"Mackenzie St, Mann have nothing
to do with it," said the president,
"and as I said before, ws still own
the smelter."

There will bo some energetic lobbying at Victoria during the coming session when applications will be made
for railway charters in which two
big transcontinental lines and three
powerful syndicates are understood to
be interested. Amid the cloud of unreliable rumors it is hard to get at
the truth, but; there is no doubt Mr.
A. F. Proctor,who built the line from
here to Procter, was sent to the coast
some weekB ago by the C. P. R. with
orders to locate a line eastward in order to cut out the V. V. & E., who already had a corps of surveyors in the
field. There should result one of the
most interesting races in the railroad
history of Canada. The Canadian Pa
ciflc has revived an 1875 charter from
Abbotsford, on the Mission branch,
through Chilllwack, to and connecting with the Columbia & Western.
The Oreat Northern is supposed to
have secured the V. V. & E. charter,
so it should be a battle of giants. The
Gooderham-Blackstock syndicate will
apply for a charter for a line starting
from a point near Aahcroft to tap
their coal lands in the Similkameen
country, and James J. Hill is also
credited with the intention of applying for a charter to tap the Crow's
Nest Pass Coal fields from the south at
Saint Mlchell. This charter will be
bitterly opposed by the C. P. R. The
struggle will be watched with interest by British Columbians who, with
a watchful government, have everything to gain and nothing to lose.

Little has been heard of late of the
chamber of mines at Rossland, which,
according to the original programme,
should have been a going concern
ere this. It Is understood tbat the
difficulty is lack of funds, and that
the promoters are endeavoring to get
grants of money from the Dominion
and "Provincial governments. The
chamber of mines at Winnipeg and
the similar institution in Ontario are
subsidised, and this has led the Rossland people to expect that they will
also get government help. They may
be right, but so far the projeot does
not seem to have aroused any great
degree of enthusiasm In the Kootenays.        ���_____^___
According to a London exchange
Field Marshall Lord Wolseloy intends

reception.

The meetings of the county court

held 19 miles from the railroad, at s
point that Is the most difficult to

the necessity of using a stage. It is

tho district as a whole was consulted,

GOD SAVE THE KINO!
An occasional correspondent at Kaslo contributed the following' verses:
O God 1 alone who greatness grants,
Inspire pur King, and iruiie,
.That he, on whom our mighty cloak
"   Of Empire falls, shall bide
Throughout his reign within Thy Law,
His Empire at bis side!
With cloak of Empire, too, endow
Him with Thy Truth and   Light,
That he may strive in wisdom's ways,
Backed by his Nation's might,
To grant seoure to all the world
Thy Justice and Thv Right!
A trusted weapon in Thy hand
Grant, Lord! hiB name may be;;
A fortress held tor Thee on land,
A" refuge on Thy. sea,
To harbor safe all sons of men
In peace and liberty I
Grant, too, 0 Lord'.the wondrous trust
Our loved Victoria won
May by the Empire grunted be
Iu full unto her son ;
Tbat he continue worthily
The work by her begun !

A ORACEFUL TRIBUTE.
Ohauge of food Brings Health and Brilliant .OomDloxion.
When the human body is furnished
with food which satjsfles Its demands,
the desire fjr unnatuial food, suoh
aB an excess of sweets, pie, cake, and
all sorts of unwise preparations���dls
appears. A California woman's experience on food is valuable.
She says: "I bave for years been
addicted to meat, particularly pork,
pie, hut biscuits, griddle-cakes, etc.
Have Deen in ill health for the past
13 years and .under the treatment of a
number of dootors. Very serious kidney and bladder troubles set in i finally liver and stomach trouble appeared.
"My . liver was , so,swollen it was
Impossible to He on my right side,
and every thing I ate soured and distressed, me beyond tbe power of words,
to express. I was irritable as a tarantula and weary all tbe time, brain
so dull that it was, almost Impossible
to, pull inyseV tofccM��CK enough to
dress.
"I finally tried a watering place,
but that did no good, While there I
was attracted to Urape-Nuts breakfast food. At that time I just barely
tipped the scales at 100 pounds and
lookqd like a wreck and was one. I
found that the Grape-Nuts tood did
not distress my stomach and I follow,-.
e.d the directions a month, eating It
regulauly.
"My appetite increased and Nature
finally began to come around. I no ,
tlceil I lost my. taste for meat, also for
pie and pastries. My stomach, liver,
and kidneys noticeably improving,
until now, at this writing, I am thoroughly well and, can stand, a smart
blow on the small of my back or on
the stomach, which would have nearly or quite killed ma a year ago.
"I sleep good, uo more nightmares,
and thoroughly enjoy my food, Orape-
Nuts at breakfast with lots of berries
and other fruit. My brain Is olear
and bright; am not irritable and do
not know that I have either stomach
or norvcB. The, world, seems like a
picnic. My flesh is firm and white
and my complexion looks liko I had
been through a course of .beauty doctoring. New blood, you see, and
plenty of It.
"I was weighed last week on the
same scales and, tipped the beam at
llili'a ounds, nearly 40 poupds gain, I
do not claim that <lrape-,Nuts cured
my lasto for. Urn pork and the other
Indigestible foods, but I do know
that Grape-Nut* filled every requirement of Nature to rebuild whore I
have been so long muring down, and
tbe bod)', being satisfied with the perfect nonrjsbwent, did not denied tbe
foods I had eaten, whloh destroyed
Instead of building up. Consequently
the taste for them naturally dropped

Letter From the Bishop of New W*st��
minster to Father Ferland.
A feature of the service at the
church of Mary Immaculate today
will be the reference to the.death of
the Qusen. Under date of the 22nd
instant, Rev. Father Ferland received
the following letter from the Bishop
of New Westminster:
"Rev. and Dear Father:
"The telegraph has just brought
us the sad news of the death of Her
majesty Queen Victoria. No subjects
of the departed Queen have more- rear
son to lament the sad event than
the Canadian peoplo and among the
Canadian people none could he found
more loyal in theii at'U'*hn*bnt to the
departed sovereign than the children
of the Catholic churoh. It is becoming therefore, that our people should
express .their grief for tbe loss, of a
virtuous and wise ruler and that they
should pray Almighty God that He
may.,deign to give her successor the
necessary light and help to govanq
the Empire wi.th wisdom and ensure
tbe temporal happiness of the various
nations depending on his guidance.
"You are Invited to speak of the
death of the Queen and of the accession of her son Edward VII., to the
throne, in, your Sunday instruction
aud to ask special prayers for the
peace and prosperity of the. realm
which Ib now passsing through a critical period of its existence.
"May the blessing of Almighty God
descend, upon  you and *U the peoplo
committed, to your oare.

Mr. W

makes the following statement In his
letter to W. J. Harvey, F. O. Mt CI.:
In reply to your Inquiry, as to how
my boy, is doing, slnoe be began . to
wear the spectacles prescribed by you,
I may say. the result, has, been, very
gratifying to us. It has entirely
changed his looks. Instead of the
half-open, dreamy look his eyes are
bright and largo. His, first expression when he put them on was,., "Oh
how large everything is." He says
he likes to wear tbem, and never
wants to go without them.' We felt
thankful for your very opportune visit

r. the noted palmist, is giving
readings. What? 6a and have ��� his
hand read? Not' on your life. Be
was no Jasper. He bad - no faith in
such things as palm reading, phuenol

fakes.and heikoewr it., Therefor* he
would not go.
' His friend insisted, "Come on,'
Said he, "let's go just for the fun of
the thing. So they went. They had
their hands read. After tbe reading
tbe skeptic earns out with a sarkma

Taking the subject's hand, Rhso, a
young lady of prepossessing manner

without asking any questions,- to- tell,'
in a quiet, unscnsational manner, the
remarkable incidents in one's past

told him,also of much that would happen to him in tbe future���but, 04
course, of this phase of ���tha reading
it would be of little avail to speak;, as
the future will unfold Itself.
It is the faithfulness with wblclt.shc

which is surprising. The visitor

all about his . past, what can he saj
