Jan.     23.���Dense   crowds
at St. James   street   lined
route to   Victoria   Btation
from an early hour.    The hull and the
front of Buckingham l'nlace   were especially thronged.   All along the former from the   palace to   Marlborough
house carriages filled with ladies stood
SB for a dritwing room, excepting that
the footmen and occupants were dressed in mourning.    The   police   precautions were unuBual.    Men on foot and
mounted   guards, were   almost   every
yard of the way.    All waited patiently   for   hours   to greet   their   King.
Eventually, preoeded by half   n dozen
mounted policemen, a plain brougham
driven very rapidly, with   the  coachman and footmen in their   usual  grey
liveries, wearing mourning bands  on
their   arms,   brought   into view   the
Elng with an  equerry   seated   beside
him.   De was   dressed in the  deepest
and most simple mourning and   carefully raise his   hut   in   acknowledgement   of   the   silent     uncovering   of
heads.    The   King   looked   tired   nnd
very sad.    Following   him   came   the
Duke ot York, the Duke of Connaught
and others.    Both the King and Duke
of  York   lookoa   pathetically   up   at
Buckingham Palace us they passed and
acknowledged the salute of the   guard
of honor   drawn up inside the   palace
grounds.   All   the   officers had   crnpe
on their left sleeves.    The King drove
to St.   James   Palace   from   Marlborough house   to   preside   at   the   first
privy   council.    He was attended   by
Lord Suffolk who has been lord of-tbe
red chamber to the   Prince   of   Wales
since  1872 and was escorted by a captain's escort of the   Horsegunrds.    By
the   time   the   King   arrived a   great
gathering of privy councillei-s in lovee
dress  with crape   on their left  arms
had taken up a position lu the throne
room.   Members  of   the   royal   family, cabinet ministers, peers, commoners, bishops,   judges, the lord   mayor,
etc., including the Duke of York, the
Duke of Connaught  and   lesser  members of the   royal family, Lord Salisbury, Lord Rosebery,   Mr. A. J. Balfour, the Duke   of   Devonshire,   Lord
Stratlit'onn   and   Mount   Royal and a
host of the   most   prominent   personages in the land were  there to receive
the King's formal   outh   binding him
to govern   tin kingdom   according   to
Its laws and customs   and for him  to
assume   the   title   of    King   Edward
VII.   of   Great  Britain,   Ireland and
Emperor of India.   The ceremony was
Interesting and accordiug   to   precedent.   The King wus in separate upart-
ament from the privy councillors.   To
the latter tho Duke of Devonshire formally  communicated   the   death    of
Queen Victoria and   the succession of
her Bon   the   Prince   of Wales to  the
throne.   The royal   dukes and certain
lords of the council wore   then directed to repair to the King's presence  to
acquaint  him   with   the terms of the \
lord   president's   statement.    Shortly
afterwards   his   majesty  entered   the
room In which   the   councillors   wore
assembled  and   addressed thorn In   a
brief   s'peeoh.    The   lord   ohancello:-,
(Lord Salisbury),   then   administered
the oath to the King  and  afterwards
to the various members of  tho   councils.   Commenting   with   the lords In
council   he took their respective oaths
of allegiance and then passed in   turn
before his majesty ns at levee,   excopt
the   King,"   whereupon   the    crowd
cheered with redoubled vigor.
The morning papers publish a long
tribute from the poet laureate, Mr.
Alfred Austin to the dead queen. Orders have been issued for 6,.100 troops
to line the streets of London today for
the proclamation ceremony. The
Gazette orders the court to go into
mourning until July 24th, and into
half mourning until January 14, 1902.
Lord Roberts has ordered the army to
adopt mourning until March .1th.
Memorial services will be held in St.
Paul's cathedral morning and evening
daily until the interment. At the first
of those held after the regular evening service yesterday, some 5000 persons were present. Bishop Barry read

The morning papers record with the
greatest satisfaction that tbe King
inis taken the title of Edward VII.
They are filled from end to end with
descriptions of the ceremonies and accounts of the reception of the news
and accession to the throne, from all
parts of the world. King Edward's
ili-st speech is also applauded The
Daily Telegraph says: "It was ud-
nn ruble, resolute,touching and breathing deep sincerity. It does equal honor to the monarch und the man and
will carry u fresh sense of hope and
confidence to the country in its trouble."
King Edward will ivturn to Osborne
Immediately after the proclamation
ceremony today. Regarding the causes
of death, the Lancet says. "Death
was due to cerebral failure. Transient and the recurring symptoms of
apathy and torpor, with a phasic indication gave great uneasiness to the
physkluns a few days before the final
illness. From Saturday these symptoms grew steadily graver but the
hart's uction was maintained throughout and tho temperature wus normal."
years ago and ��500,000 in 1852. The
Queen was a clear headed business
woman, and of course, had tho best
financial advice. In IsmI she bought
property for ��78,000. the market value
of which is now ieckoned to be ��170,
ono. She had estates in several German principalities and inherited a
beautiful villa at ridden from Princo
Hohenlohe. The Queen's laces are
worth an enormous sum. There are
private jewels, gold and plate and
pictures estimated to value more than
a million pounds sterling.
Cowes, Jan. 23���The departure of
Emperor William depends upon the
date of the funeral. Everything Ib
unsettled. Ten days or a fortnight
may elapse before the burial. The
n.edioal report is not complete. It is
expected tomorrow.
Cowes, Jan. 23.���Nothing has been
decided at OBborne house regarding
the furnera! arrangements or the removal of the body and nothing will
be until after the arrival of the King.
The palace is painfully .quiet this
afternoon. There have been no arrivals or departures since the King left
The family dinner party like that of
last evening was brief. Hcrr Fuchs,
the German sculptor, has arrived to
take a caste of the dead Queen's face.
It is reported that Emperor William
will remain in the Isle of Wight until
the removal of the body, even if this
should be postponed for a fortnight.

ious loss I have sustained, anil 1 hereby decree that all officers of my army

coincidence exactly 82 years ago today
the Gazette printed tho Prince Regent's speech from the throne to parliament nnd the principal subjects
were the death of the queen and the
London, Jan. 23.���The following is
the full text of Ills Majesty's accession speech :
"Your Royal Highnesses, My Lords
and Gentlemen,���This is the most
painful occasion on which I shall ever
be called upon to address you. My
first melancholy duty is to announoe
in you the death of my beloved moth
er, the Queen, aud I know how deeply
you and tho whole nation, and I think
I may say, the whole world, sympa
thi/.es with me in the Irreparable loss
wo have ull sustained. I need hardly
say that my constant endeavor will be
always to walk In her footsteps. In
undertaking the heavy load which
now devolves upon me, I am fully determined to be a constitutional mvir-
elgn in the strictest sense of the word
und so long as there is breath in my
body to work for the good and amelioration of my people. I havo resolved
to be known by the name of Edward,
whloh has been borne by six of my
unccstors. In doing so I do not undervalue the name of Albeit which I inherit from my ever to be lamented
great and wise father, who, by universal consent Is, I think, deservedly
known by the name of Albert the
Good,   and   I   desire that   his   name
that each passed and kissed his bunds | should stand   alone.   In conclusion  1
before passing out of the chamber.
This brought ihe ceremony to a close.
By 3:30 p. m., when hia majesty returned to Mm I borough house, the
ofbwd-iB the neighborhood wus of immense proportions. The King's prioi
journey was accomplished in almost
complete silence but on this occasion
he was loudly cheered all along the
line of route. Immediately opposite
Marlborough house gates a tal 1 gen ���
tlcman in the front of the crowd wavail hia bauds and shouted,"Long Live
trust to parliament and the nation to
support me in the arduous duties
which now devolve upon me by inheritance and to which I am determined
to devote my whole strength during
the remainder of my life."
London, Jan. 23.���The Queens' private wealth yielded an Income of
about ��200,000 yearly. This.Is exclusive of ��385,000 annually from parliament. She Inherited nearly all the
Prince Consort's estate, ��11110,000,forty
Cowes, Isle of Wight, Jan. 23.���
Events shifted toduy from Cowes to
London. Osborne was a house of
mourning and Cowes probably the
quietest place in the world today.
The King departed early. After him
followed the army of officials and
newspaper correspondents who ��� had
given life to the town and prosperity
to tho hotels, Zand merchants. The"
King's departure was as unostenta<-
tious as that of an American president. He and his suite in civilian
attire left the castle without military
escort and with no si<rns of pomp.
Queen Victoria's body was embalmed yesterday afternoon and occupies
the center of the dining room which
is hung with trappings of mourning.
Outside two officers are on guard.
Within, two Indian attendants remain
in company with the ladies-in-waiting who are constantly present. The
body is attired in blaok. The face is
perfectly peaceful and tbe remains
plaoed with the arms folded. On the
breast rests a beautiful gold cross.
The features are very calm. The head
is inclined iillghtly to the right.
All about are mantities of beautiful
flowers. The honor of first seeing the
body of the Queen was conferred on
her personal retinue and such a simple, pathetic scene as marked this afternoon could hardly have occurred in
any other monarchy. Tbe footmen,
housemaids, coachmen, the stable
lads, policemen dressed in their Sunday clothes, filled the room for four
hours. There were no formalities. It
might have been tho body of any
country lady whose tenants were bidding her a last farewell. Bent old
men, children nnd families who hud
grown up on the estute who regarded
Queen Victoria as a friend and patron
rather than a sovereign, took tbeir
turn, Their grief was the sorrow of
those who had lost a friend. Many
residents of Cowes and neigborlng
towns and some prominent people applied at the porter's lodge for admission, but they were told to come tomorrow. There Is no mistaking the
reality of the sorrow of Cowes.
"The Queen waB always so good to
us," they say. She knew personally
many of the townspeople and took
real Interest in their families, their
troubles and their joys. She could
mill many of them by name and often
stopped in her drives to talk to thorn.
Almost ever house has a half-masted
flag and the store windows are draped
with blaok and white.
Emperor William and Princess
Louise walked to Appingham elm rub
this afternoon. It is learned that the
King aisuincd the title of Edward
VII. at the express wish of his mother. The Duke of York does'not at
once become Prince of Wales, through
the nceesion of his father. The title
of Prince of Wales becomes merged
in tbe sovereignty, but the King will
exercise his prerogative and confer
the principality of Wales on the heir
The new King was born, November
nth, 1841, and was created Prince of
Wales on the following December 4.

London, Jai. j 24.���The King who

driven to Buckingham Palace after
taking the oath before the privy council and dined there with the Duchess
of Albany. Subsequently he went to
Marlborough house to sleep. It is
understood that be will return to Osborne this morning (Thursday) to direct the funeral arrangements. These
were discussed at a meeting of the au-
thorltles/of tbo royal household at
Rockingham-Palace last evening. At
the college of arms It is said that the
date of the funeral could not be settled until it was known-when the European royalties or-their- representatives could arrive, but that the function would be held at the earliest
possible date for the convenience of
Emperor William, whose stay In England might be unavoidably limited.
Buckingham Palace is being made
ready for the royal persons who are
arriving in London. Representatives
of all the royal families in Europe
will probably be present at .the funeral, including the Kings of Italy,Belgium and Greece, the crown princes of
Germany and Sweden and Archduke
Francis Ferdinand of Austria. All tbe
European courts will go Into mourto-
lng tor various periods.
Washington, Jan.23.��� Secretary Hay

fully.to tender to members of the royal family our Blncore sympathy with
thetu and feelings of deep regret of
the great uflliction that has befallen
them in the death of Uer Majesty,
Queen Victoria." The amendment
proposed by Mr. Hnrrlngton, who is
the Lord Mayor elect, was as follows
"Without in any way detracting
from the high peisonal qualities of
the deceased, and guarding against
any expression of feelings wblob
might seem ungracious or unworthy
of the traditions of our nation, this
council must decline in the present
political condition of Ireland 10 take
any part iu any demonstration of loyalty to the English throne." The introduction of the amendment led to an
angry scene.
London, Jan. 24.���An extraordinary issue of the Gazette this morning appears with black borders, and
announces the death of Queen Victoria
"The event has caused one universal feeling of regret and Horrow to her
lote majesty's faithful subjects, to

Montreal, Que., Jan. 24.��� A fire
which started in the wholesale district at five minutes past eight o'clock
last night at one o'clock this morning had destroyed property valued at
between 82,500,000 and 83,000,000, and
was Btill burning, though the appearances are that the firemen have at
lust got it under control. Included in
the property burned is the splendid
board of trade building which cost
half a million dollars with over a
hundred tenants, and half a dozen
large firms and two score of smaller
concerns. The weather is cold but
not particularly soft und the firemen
were not greatly hampered in this respect. Outside of the board of trade
building there was not a modern
structure in those burned. The narrow streets, antiquated buildings and
the lnlliimmuble iiutn.-e of the stocks
they contained made a combination before which the firemen were powerless. The fire practically burned until it came to opon spaces which guve
tho firemen a fresh opportunity. For
a time it looked as if the Humes would
spread along Commissioner street to
the Grand Trunk oilices in course of
erection, but good work happily
cut it off at St. Peter street. Immense crowds   of people   jammed   the
narrow streets greatly   impeding   tho
work of the firemen.   The police could
not control the crowds. Women fainted und clothes   wore torn ss those   in
the front ranks scenting danger   from
falling wulls mude a rush   for   safety.
The   following   are estimates of principal   losses:    Board   of Tittde, 81100,-

the locality were deserted ut the time
and the  fire   apparently   hud   a   good
headway   before   the   first alarm   was
sent     in.    Tho   firemen     on   arrival
found the building,u three story stone
structure, 1 solid mass  of   Humes, the
fire having   appurenty sturted   In   the
basement und rushed up   the   elevator
shaft, in the rear of the store.    Second
and third alarms were   pul'eil Immediately  on the arrival of the division
sub-clilof, but before the nearest reinforcements   rciiched     the    scene   the
flames had leaped   across  narrow   St.
Peter street and attacked the big  five
story stone building occupied by II. A.
Nelson A Sons Co., fancy   goods,   etc.
Here It spread as rapidly as it had   in
the   Saxe   building.    In    almost    an
instant   it ^seemed   as  if   the  entire
bulding   was a roaring furnace.    The
warehouse of Beardmoro   A   Co., tanners, adjoining Nelson's to   the south
was next attacked und from   there the
flames communicated to the establishment   of   Silverman,    Boulter   A Co.,
wholesale hutters and   furriers.    Here
another   inflamable   stock added   zest
to the flames.    In   the   meantime   the
tlaines had continued   down   St. Peter
street, licking up   the   premises of J.
Binirili'uti A Co.,   huts, caps, etc.    St.
Peter street for an   entire block was a
mass of flames on  either side.    In the
meantime a great fight wus being made
to save the big   bourd   of truile building, erected eight years ago at a   cost
of 8000,000 and adjoining  tho   Nelson
building on the north side.  For along
time   the   efforts of the brigade were
successful, a plentiful supply of water
keeping   the   exposed   portions   cool.
But the flames had extended along the
north aide   of St.   Paul   street,   going
west from Silverman. Boulter A Co. 's,
licking   up  half n dozen concerns  in
its way un'll it readied the big whole
sale fur establishment of James CoriS-
tine   A Co.    This   building   extended
all the way from Ht.;l'aul to the board
of trade building   and the flames  appeared to go through it   like  a tinder
box.    When   the   rear   wall   of   this
building went   it   was seen   that  the
board of trade would huve   to  go too.
A solid sheet of flume sprang   out and
.seized   hold of   the big   building In a
dozon different   places,   driving    the
firemen back.    The newer   und   more
modern structure burned more   slowly
than those which already   hud   fallen
prey to   the   flumes, but   the   flicmen
were uppurcntly paralyzed  and   could
not stay the   march   of the devouring
element.    By   this   time  cveiy   piece
of fire lighting apparatufl thu city possessed was in use.    Two water towers
which   hud   failed to keep   the   blaze
from the bourd of trade building were
shifted around to   St. Paul   street anil
hero again   they were   too   lute.    The
fire dashed   across   the   narrow street
the   pieiuises  of   Thos.
Davidson   Co anufacturlng     tinsmiths, spreading eaHt anil   west,   Including II. Levi, drygoods, and half a
dozon   other   smaller    concerns.     Ou
Lemolnc street the big wholesale grocery firm of l.uporte,    Murtln   A   Co,,
wus attacked.    After the Bremen   hud
abandoned   all   hope   of    suvlng   tho
bourd of trail"   building  they concentrated   their   efforts   inulnly on   this
building, for thu spread of the   flames
in   this   direction   meant the   loss   of
the cntlru wholesale ilrygiiuds section.
At 12-30 it looked   us  'if the building
might be saved, but the stock will
heiivily dumnged by water.

The death of Her Majesty, Queen
Victoria, does not, as many suppose,
dissolve parliament. Prior to the
reign of Queen Ann the death of a
sovereign wonld effect dissolution,
but this was later modified fixing the
time of dissolution six months after a
sovereign's death. Still later, - in
1867, this act was also abolished so
tbat now parliament is not effected
in any way by such demise.' In the
present case, King Edward could, of
course, dissolve parliament* at any
time he wished.
Nelson that the government is to keep
up tbe record It has made In other
British Columbia towns, and award
the contract for the Nelson building
to eastern people. In any event, contractors here say tbat tbe figures submitted to the department at Ottawa
shonld be published.
The new council ia acting wisely In
its efforts to place the city in a better
sanitary condition. The resolution of
Aldermen . Paterson and Madden,
that an Isolation hospital Is needed,
will be seconded by every resident of
the city. Dr. LaBau'B recommendations in reference to the indiscriminate bringing of corpses into tbe city,
and the registration : of births and
deaths, are worthy of adoption and
will undoubtedly meet with .general
approval. Wo are living in a healthy
climate here, but unless assisted nature cannot keep - us always in good
It looks as If the contract for the
building of Nelson's new postoffloe,
customs honse, etc., was to go to eastern people. The only, .tender submitted from Nelson was said not to be low
enough and was.laid-aside. It is too
bad we could not have had it built by
a Nelson m��n, but, although some of
us may kick about the contiuct going
east, we will promise to be food to
whoever the government sends,, pro
vlded be will hurry and give us tho
Ube of the new quarters.
With no desire whatever to, appear
in the role of. one "fishing" for a
compliment in return, The Miner
takes occasion to compliment its
morning contemporary, The Tribune
upon the appearance of-its drst page
yesterday morning. ' No more-appro
priate or tasteful first page was printed anywhere in Canada, not even In
The Miner office on Ward street.
The Nelson Miner, which since last
summer has been published as- as afternoon paper, has resolved to go back
to the morning edition, commencing
on the 19th Inst. A change, is like
wise to take place in tbe management
of The Miner, Mr. Beaton, senior, retiring therefrom. While not able to
shout amen to everything which has
appeared in that journal, we must - in
all candor give it credit for being a
sprightly, up-to-date newspaper, and,
everything considered, a credit to Nelson and those connected with its publication.���Vancouver World.

What an English Newspaperman Saya
of British Columbia.
' Mr. L. M. Byles, an English journalist who is in this country on behalf of a number of old country papers, is in Nelson. Mr. Byles left Liverpool last October and has since been
traveling through western Canada.
"It is a funny thing," said Mr.
Byles to a Miner man, "how little
Canada, and especially Rritish Columbia, are known across tbe water. II
is not so long ago since a prominent
public man asked in all seriousness
what state of the union British Columbia was in. This ignorance is
chiefly due to lack of proper advertising. New Zealand has a wideawake
agent-general who besides keeping a
central bureau of information running
in London, spends a large percentage
of his time lecturing' on his colony.
The result is that men and capital
are Steadily migrating to the Antipodes. At first it surprised me to find
tbat in the Immense mineral resources
of this country British capital was
rarely employed. Rut now I feel sure
tbat tbe cause lies at home. Little
or no organized attempt seems to be
made to get hold of the right men or
money. The best properties are
passing into the hands of Americans
who pay less although they pay easier, and this although money can be
got in London as low as \li per cent.
It Is not my business exactly, but
we have in London a little weekly
paper called the British Columbia Review which is doing it's best for British Columiba. If British Columbia
would do more for it its power would
Increase. A paper must receive support II it is to be run in the best possible manner. Already the Review
stands high in the estimation of financial men in the old country and
with more assistance from this side
there is no reason why it should not
take its place with the great organs
of Australia and South Alrica kept
going in London."
" Mr. Byles goes to Kaslo from Nelson
this afternoon and thence  to Sandon.
"Yod don't send me any more vio
lets Or American Besuties, or boxes
at oandy," she marmured.
"No," answered Mr. Blyklns.
"But that Is no sign I am not as at
tentlve as ever. If you would rather
bave violets and roses and boxes of
oandy than the cabbages and potatoes
and sirloin steaks that I send round,
Bay the word. Your slightest wish
shall be gratified even if I have to
eat at a dairy lunch room. "--Washington Star.

men for permission to parade with

as to this event is that all the local

proceed to tbe recreation grounds

Some More Interesting Games in Rink
Yesterday was a busy day among
the curlers at the skating rink. In
the afternoon two scratch games'were
played and at night two more matches
in the rink tournament cams off.
Further interest has been added to
this conteBt by the fact that the tramway company has offered four prizes
to go to the members of the rink winning the consolation contest.

Bought a Typewriter and Paid for
Without Costing Him a Cent.
"Do you see that young man over
there'.'" said a man reading a paper
in the seat opposite. "He's one of
the greatest financial geniuses in the
country, if little things are any indication of a man's ability and character. He'll be a millionaire before
long, or I'm no judge of people,'
The young mans' apppearance did
not seem to indicate that there was
anything out of tbe ordinary about
him, aud his admirer's companion
said so.
"Well, I'll tell you how I came to
discover his genius," said the man
who had spoken first. "When I tell
you what he did I think you'll agree
with me. He secured a typewriter
without paying a eentfor it,and with
ouj doing a stroke of work for it, and
he did it in a perfectly honest legitimate way, too. In fact, he actually
made money on the transaction. I
only discovered how he did it by accident, and I've been wondering at the
genius and simplicity of tbe scheme
ever since. He was formerly employed in the same office with me, and we
both bad a good deal of writing. One
day he caine up to me and proposed
that we should hire a typewriter together. " 'We can hire a tpyewriter
for $4 a month,' he said, 'and if we
split it between us it will cost us only
50 cents a week each. We can do
that all right, because we wouldn't
be using it at the same time, anyway.
If you give me 82 now I'll go up to
the office of one of the typewriter companies and have them send down a
typewr-iter. I'll arrange the whole
thing so as to save   you  any trouble.'
���'1 agreed to this, and' tbe young
man went off with the 82. Every
month I paid bim 82 and we both
used the typewriter with perfect satisfaction. About a week after the first
payment 1 learned that my friend was
not paying anything for the type-
writer,but was actually making a little on it. He was hiring it out to a
man who only used it occasionally,
and whom he persuaded to pay him 50
cents a week for the use of it. I
thought that this was ruther clevei,
but I didn't realise the full measure
of my friend's ability until a year had
expired. Then I learned from a man
who had called to collect a payment
on it that he had agreed to buy the
typewriter on the installment plan,
paying 84 a month for it. The man
was calling for the last monthly payment at this time, and the typewriter
i6 now the property of my friend. It
took him a year to pay it off at 82 a
month, and he was reoeiving 50 cents
a week for it all the time. I never
took the trouble to figure it out, but I
can see that he must have been making a little on it while he waB paying
for it.

The late diaries Keene, the artist
of Punch, used to describe, with a
great delight, the method of a certain man whom hi called "a pothouse Buskin." This person was sitting with a friend in an inn parlor,
and was haranguing the other man on
matters in general. Finally the friend
ventured mildly to interpose an ob
jection. The speaker drew himself
up with much dignity. "I ain't a-ar-

In his volume on Ellen Terry, Clement Scott tells of a somewhat self-

actor who complained that the noted

He had not the courage to tell ber of
his objections,so he wrote hei a letter
of heart-broken complaint in which
he said: "I am extremely sorry to tell
you that it is impossible for me to
make any effect in such and such a
scene if you persist in laughing at me
on the stage, and so spoiling the situation. May I ask you to change
your attitude as the scene is a most
trying one?" Miss Terry's answer
was very direct and to the point, for
she wrote: "You are quite mistaken.
I never laugh at you on the

The Westminster Gazette gives
some interesting information concerning the use of tobaccco by the olergy
in different religious bodies. "John
Wesley," it says,"forbade Mb preachers to smoke or chew tobacco, or take
snuff." This rule still obtains In
the Wesleyan ministry. Thackery
hoped the day would come when be
would see a bishop lolling out the
Athenaeum with a .cigar in his
mouth, or at least a pipe stuck in his
shovel-hat. He did not live to see
this, but the bishop of Manchester
has publicly proclaimed the virtues
of tobacco as a bond of sympathy between man and man. 'At your idol
again, Mr Hall,' exclaimed a lady
once on discovering Mr. Robert Hall
the celebrated divine, with a pipe in
his mouth. 'Yes,' said the preacher,
'burning it, ma'am.' "

Nelson's new city council took the
initiative yesterday in what promises
to be an active campaign in tbe direction of securing local health conditions as near perfect as are obtainable. The mayor and aldermen met
as a board of health, his worship presiding. The meeting lasted for an
hour and.a half, in the course of
which a number of important matters
came up and the preliminary steps
are taken on a couple of points whloh
were regarded as pressing.
Dr. LaBau, medical health officer,
presented a long report dealing at
length with the questions of an isolation hospital, pure water supply, and
the inspection of milk and food. Tbe
report was taken by sections and discussed with interest, Dr. LaBau being
present during most of the session.
The isolation hospital was considered first. It developed that the buildings erected last winter on the oity
park were practically useless, save,
perhaps, in another smallpox emergency, and even then their location
at Buch a distance from all water and
sewer connections made it advisable to
abandon the buildings. Mayor Fletcher's solution of the problem was to
burn the old premises and erect a proper building at a point where all conveniences were available. Such an
institution could be put up and used
for contagious d'seases of every description thus doing away with the
serious and growing expense which
the corporation was now put to in
maintaining a quarantine on affected
houses. The interior could be arranged so that it might be thoroughly
disinfected after the removal of a patient and the building would then be
available for other cases as they might
arise. The question of a site came up
and it was concluded that, provided
no danger ot infection was to be feared, tbe closer the isolation building
could be placed to the -general hospital, the,better it would be for the parties interested. Dr. LaBau assured
the members that the building, if
properly designed, could be safey
erected within 100 feet of a hospital,
and as tbe site suggested is over 500
feet from the general hospital and
more than that distance from any residence it was decided that a better
location could not be secured. Messrs.
Paterson and Madden moved, and it
was carried,that in the opinion of the
board an isolation hospital was necessary in the interests of the city. On
tbe strength of the resolution Mayor
Fletcher undertook to enter into correspondence with the lands and
works department of the legislature
for the purpose of securing a title to
the suggested site.
The medical health officer's report
touched on the need of checking the
indiscriminate bringing of corpses
iuto the city on the ground that in
some cases death might have occurred
from an infectious disease and grave
danger would exist of an epidemic
from this source. He also recommended the adoption of a system of registering all deaths within the municipality and, of issuing burial permits.
A resolution was carried providing
for an amendment to the existing
health bylaw covering both points and
this will come up at the city counoi).
In regard to sanitary inspection of
the oity the members agreed that tbe
work was not being done properly at
the present time for the reason that
the inspector was also expeoted to
perform half a dozen or so other duties with the result that he had adequate time for none. At a forthcoming council meeting another amendment will be made to the health by

Dr. LaBau drew attention to the necessity of maintaining the supply undented, also suggesting a new pipe
line to Cottonwood lake on the
ground that it would be easier tn p-��
serve a body of water than to preserve
four to six miles of oreek. He also
recommended an extention of the
Cottonwood creek in-take to a point
where there could be no danger of infection from the Princess property.
These points were gone into and will
doubtless come- up again. Tbe members agreed, however, that a pipe line
to the lake was beyond tbis year's
Compulsory vaccination was discussed, and it was resolved to request
other councils and boards of trade to
join in petitioning the li.--.-tenant-

C. B. Bowman Talks Enthusiastically
of His Home Town.
C. B. Bowman, a well known resident of Lethbrldge, was in the city
yesterday. He states that the prospects for a lively year in Lethbrldge
have never been brighter than, at the
piesent time. A year ago half the
houses in the town were vacant while
today not a building is available and
this is certain to stimulate building.
The prime factor in the prosperity of
the town is the completion of the big
irrigation canal which will reclaim
half a million acres of arid land and
render it available for crops. Experiments conducted on an extensive scale
demonstrate tbat the land with water
brought to it will produce 35 bushels
of wheat to the acre, oats on a similar
ratio, alfalfa in immense quantities
and sugar beet on a liberal scale. Already a big block of land has been
taken up and a rush of settlers is anticipated in the spring. The irrigation company, which Is practically the
same syndicate which controls the
Gait Coal company bas invested 8500, -
000 in the canal, and are figuring on
getting their money back by selling
the laad at 88 per acre and disposing
of the water at tbe rate of 81 per acre
for tbe ground under cultivation.
Lethbrldge has a lateral from the
main canal which delivers 3,500,000
gallons daily in tbe city.
