THE END IS NOT YET
At 7 O'clock This Morning Queen Victoria Was Still Alive but All Hope
of Her Recovery Was Gone.
���
A Day of Intense Anxiety in All Portions of the Globe-Prince of Wales Is 111
and Unable to Leave London. j
Cowes, Jan. 21.���7 a.m.���The queen
is still alive, but  all hopes are   gone.
London, Jan. 21.���Mr. Theed, the
Bouiptor, went to Osborne last evening
in order to be ready to make the death
mask.
London, Jan. 21.���This morning's
newspapers have thrown off all pretence of any possibility of recovery
and sadly admit that tbe end may
come at any moment. Therefore, they
proceed to review her majesty's long
an illustrious reign as though Bhe
were no more and to dilate upon the
wonderful influence she wellded in
European politics for so many   years.
Cowes, Jan. 21.-3:45 a. m.���Every
body is up in Osborne house and terrible anxiety prevails in all quarters.
If the queen survives until Tuesday
she will surprise her doctors who have
been   declaring  that she will not  be
able to survive beyond 5 o'elock this
morning. The latest bulletin with its
fateful news was Issued too late to
become common knowledge here
about. The exclusive information of
the Assoicated Press obtained an
hour earlier u still less a matter of
publio knowledge.
       i HSOiapL
. Osborne, Isle of Wight, Jan.20.���The
following bulletin has been posted:
"The Queen passed a somewhat restless night; there has been no material
change in her condition since last
reported.    (Signed), Powell Reid."
4:30 p. m.���London time���Queen
alive but symptoms continue to cause
anxiety.
Osborne, Isle of Wight, Jan. 20.���At
T p. m. there was grave reason to
believe that the queen's condition was
critical.
Osborne, Isle of Wight, Jan. 20.���11
p. m.��� The Asoclated Press learns
that a very serious change has occurred in the condition of Queen Victoria.
The worst is feared before morning,
Osborne, Isle of Wight, Jan. 21.���
1:25 a. m.���The official bulletin Issued
at midnight says the queen's condition late this evening become more
serious with increasing weakness and
diminishing power of taking nourishment.
��� Osborne, Isle of Wight, Jan. 21.���2
a. m.���Physicians hope' that the queen
may rally by 5 o'clock this morning,
(Monday). If she does, it is expected
she will live through the day. If
not, all hope is abandoned. Immediately on the oceurience of the queen's
collapse about 10 o'clock last evening,
a message was sent to London summoning the Prince of Wales and Em-
pei.W William. The Prince of Wales
was in such a condition of health that
it was Impossible for him to leave
London at that hour, but it is hoped
that he will start for Osborne at eight
this morning.
Osborne, Isle of Wight, Jan. 21.���
9 :S0 a. m.��� The queen is in a coma
tose   condition   and   Ib   regarded   as
passing away.
Osborne, Isle of Wight, Jan. 21���3
a. m.���The worst is expected at any
moment and the members of the royal
family are now assembled in the
queen's bed chamber.
Osborne, Isle of Wight, Jan. 21.���
3:45 a.m.���The queen still lives and
there is no change in ber condition.
Osborne, Isle of Wight, Jan. 21. ���
5:15 a. m.���Tbe members of the royal
family are still gathered in a room
adjoining the queen's bedchamber.
Her majesty is unconscious and the
end is expected at any moment.
Cowes, Jan. 21.���4 a. m.���No official bulletin has been issued since
midnight. Doubts are expressed if the
Prinoe of Wales and Emperor of Germany will arrive here in time to see
the end.
London, Jan. 21.���It is tbonght that
Prince of Wales will be able to leave
for Cowes at 8 a. m..
Cowes, Jan. 21.-12:15 a. m.���A collapse, or what the physicians feared
was a collapse, occurred about 10
o'clock last night. Arrangements were
hurriedly made to provide special telephone and telegraphic facilities. It
is understood that the phyicians have
resorted to artificial methods to prolong life such as are used only in
cases of persons in extremis. Tbe Associated Press learns that the paralysis is chiefly evident in the face, one
side of which appears to have lost all
nerve and muscular power. At six
o'clock last evening the malady had
not reached tbe vital organs although
it had caused an almost total loss of
the power of speech. What was so
mnch feared was that the brain might
be attacked. Keenly sensitive of her
affliction and appearance the queen
has absolutely refused to see any one
but her nurses and doctors and it is
undea|tood that the Prince of Wales
la the only exception to this rule and
that his interview lasted but a few
minutes. The nature of the malady is
known only to a very few and it is
the royal wish that the public should
not be informed of tho existence of
paralysis.
Cowes, Isle of Wight, Jan. 21.���1:15
a. ai.���So far as her immediate safety
is concerned, her majesty's extreme
weakness causes almost more alarm
than tbe paralysis. Much difficulty
has been experienced in administering
nourishment, for she appears quite
unable to masticate. For more tban a
week the court officials have bad bard
work to keep her from sleeping at the
wrong time. The last time she drove
out the villagers were astounded to
hear the clear treble of the son of
the Princess Battenrberg trilling out
popular Songs from the royal carriage.
The explanation is tbat he was singing to keep his grandmother awake.
Emperor William, Prince of Wales and
the Duke of York are expected to arrive   at  Osborne house  today (Mon
day). Yesterday at Osborne, hedged
around with intense sorrow, began
with a touching scene. Amid the
bright sunshine, in marked contrast
to the gloomy skies of Saturday, there
drove out from the palace grounds a
carriage containing wreaths for the
tomb of Prinoe Henry of Battenberg
in the little church at Whippingham,
a ten mile ride from the royal residence. Then followed carriages containing the Princess of Wales, the
Princess of Battenberg, Princess
Louise, and others all dressed in the
deepest black. The face of the Princess of Wales showed signs of the anxiety she was undergoing. The annual
memorial service for Prinoe Henry,
always a sad occasion, was more than
usually sorrowful, for the shadow of
a still greater bereavement was uppermost in all minds. The Princess of
Wales and the Princess of Battenberg
sobbed bitterly and there was scarcely
one of those royal heads bent in prayer that did not shake with a grief
which could not be suppressed. The
departure of the Prince of Wales for
London shortly after 12 o'clock to
meet Emperor William was quickly
accomplished. The queen had been
informed of the kaiser's coming and
had signified her desire that the
prince should go to meet him. Rather against bis will the man who for
the moment was practically King of
England, obeyed his mother's wishes.
It was rumored that the queen wanted the emperor to postpone bis visit
to OBborne as she did not want to receive him in ber present condition.
Apparently in her lucid' moments she
of Connanght. The steamer had a
rough passage and on entering Sheer-
ness harbor went by the warships
without any ceremonies. Admiral
Kennedy and Count Von Miraback ot
the German embassy receive-) the emperor and escorted him to a special
waiting room. Two hours before his
majesty's train was due in London
people began to gather , about Charing
Cross station. Thearowd Included not
the casual hanger* on, but many of
the fashionables, and, hundreds of
Germans anxious to see the emperor
on his first appearance; in Lopdon for
years. The throng beaame so large
tbat tbe railroad authorities erected
wooden barriers and a hundred.of the
tallest police of the metropolitan force
with squads of mounted men lined up
the people on the streets. Through
this lane moved a procession of royal
carriages, each bearing two men in
yellow livery behind. The carriages
entered the railway station and drew
up near the track. The Prince of
Wales arrived just before the train
entered the station which was at '6:20
p. m. The Duke of York, Prince
Christian, Prince Albert of Schleswlg-
Holstein, and Prince Arthur of Con -
naught, completed the group of royal
personages. Emperor William stepped out of a saloon car wearing a traveling-suit and soft hat. He saluted
the Prince of Wales by kissing him on
both cheeks and the prinoe returned
a similar salutation. He embraced
the Duke of York and shook hands
with the others. The people who
looked on as the carriages drove off,
uncovered their   heads   and   Emperor
believed she would be able to conquer William and tbe Prince of Wales ae-
the disease which has fastened Itself knowledged the courtesy by raising
upon her.    During the  afternoon, the' their   hats.    No   cheers    broke    the
long hilly road to the palace grounds
was crowded with people, particularly
young men and women arrayed in
their Sunday garb, dotting the landscape with'vivid patches of color. The
local gentry after services wrote their
names   in   the   visitors  book   at the
mournful silence. At 10 p. m. the
Prince of Wales began conversation
by telephone with . Osborne house
which lasted nearly an hour. As a
result of tbis the emperor and prince
decided to start for OBborne this
(Monday) morning.   Orders were giv
lodge. Inquiries of Importance came [ en that a royal yaobt should be kept
by telegram and these were le- in waiting to convey them to the Isle
glon.   Hundreds   of   people, all  sorts ] of Wight.   During the day   the mem-
and conditions of men, clergymen,
predominating, flooded Cowes with
telegrams asking for the latest   news.
The coming of Emperor William
and the news that King Leopold was
about starting for London inspired
fears that death was at hand. On the
other hand, the fact tbat the Prince
of Wales was able to leave Osborne
house had an encouraging effect.
When the prince arrived from Osborne
at Victoria station, London, at 4 p.
m. with Sir Francis Knollys attending, several hundred people were
there to greet him. There was no
demonstration. The Earl of Clarendon and the Earl of Pembroke received the prince. When they enquired
regarding the queen's condition, he
replied: "You see they have let me
come away." The government had
arranged to send the fast cruiser Minerva to bring Emperor William, but
he embarked on a mall packet for
England before he learned of the
plans, being accompanied by the Duke
bers of the diplomatic corps and other notable persons entered their names
in tbe visitors book at Buckingham
palace.
In churches of all denominations
prayers were offered at the morning
services. The chief rabbi requested
the special prayers. The following
notice was read in the Roman Catholic cathedral at Kensington: "The
prayers of the congregation are asked for her majesty the queen, the condition of whose health is a cause of
anxiety and sorrow to us all. We
pray that by God's help ber majesty's
recovery may be speedy and complete." The dean of St. George
chapel, Windsor, read the prayers
for a sick person when there is little
hope of recovery beginning: "For as
much as on all appearance tbe time
of her dissolution draweth near."
New York, Jan. 20.���In a special
eable dispatch, dated London, 6 a.
m., Mr. Isaac N. Ford, correspondent
of the New York Tribune, says:
"The Prince of Wales had Intended to
spend Sunday at tjnndrlnghaui and
visit tbe queen in the course of a fortnight. He decided in the morning tu
remain at Marlborough house but
changed his plans at noon upon receiving dispatches from Osborne urging bim to go to Cowes without delay. Tbe railroad officials at Victoria
station had been warned to bave a
special train in readiness at short notice and the Prince arrived at the station with royal punctuality, a minute
before tbe appointed time. Princess
Louise who had expected to go to
Osborne on Monday, to take the place
of Princess Christian, had also received an unexpected summons and she
joined the Prince of Wales at the station in the course of a few minutes.
The prince, in a dark suit, short overcoat and felt hat, was a conspicuous
figure on the station platform. During the short interval of delay, contrary to his usual habit, he walked
restlessly up and down the platform
and appeared deeply agitated and depressed. The melancholy significance
of this sudden journey was appreciated Dy the dullest of railway porters
and amid the noise of suburban trippers the train moved out in silence. A great shadow seemed to fall
upon London during the afternoon,
when special editions announced that
tbe queen was suffering from physical
prostration, accompanied by symptoms that caused deep anxiety. The
half holiday had come after a week of
toil, but there was a strange hush in
the Strand and Piccadilly and every
face in omnibuses and on foot was
careworn and and. The crowds of
clerks and shop girls knew that the
good queen was lying at tbe point of
death and tbat ber children were lias
tening to her bedside, and they were
sobered and saddened by the thought
tbat tbis might be their last chance to
show tbeir loyalty to ber by communing their hearts and being still. London has witnessed all tbe triumphs of
the queen's reign, from the gray
morning when her accession was announced at old Kensington lo tbe second jubilee, but it never paid so fine
a tribute to her virtues and nobility
of character as on tbis murky Saturday afternoon, when a reverend bush
fell upon the crowds in the streets
and nobody had the heart to .smile.
Tbe matinee audiences at tbe theatres
seemed half ashamed to laugh at the
comic business on the stage and when
the curtain fell they rose from a.common impulse and sang "God Save the
Queen," reverently and with deep
emotion,and there were tears in many
eyes, and voices were tremulous
when the solemn refrain ended. Glorious indeed is the reign which leaves
every subject with a sense of personal
sorrow and bereavement when the sovereign is striken unte death. The
royal circle at Osborne conld not be
complete for the Empress Frederick
was an invalid at Cronberg, free from
pain, but menaced with a recurrence
of a fatal malady. The Duke of Con-
naught was in Germany for the purpose of visiting her, but was caught
on the way at Berlin and summoned
in baste to Osborne. The Princess of
Wales came up to London during the
afternoon and went on to Osborne
with the Duke of York. Princess
Henry of Battenberg and Princess
Christian were already with the queen
and welcomed tbe Prince of Wales and
Princess Louise when they arrived.
"It has always been united, the
royal family, for the queen had ruled
her children with the law of love, and
there bad never been jealousies or
strife among them. The queen's will
has always been law for 'ier children
and in honoring her they bad been
joined together in bonds of affection.
Mournfully they gathered in response
to tbe physician's warning that tbe
end might come at any time, as the
aged sovereign's powers were waning.
But happily there was an Improvement in tbe   symptoms   before night
fall. The Princess of Wales and the
Unite of York arrived during the evening. The Duke of Connaught Is
expected today and a warship has been
sent to letch the German emperor to
Splthead. It was one of the gloomiest nights London has ever known.
Not a light dickered from Buckingham palace, where so many stately
functions had been ordered by the
queen. The old palace of St. James,
where the girlish sovereign had shown
horself at the window when her accession was proclaimed sixty-three
years ago, was dark and gloomy and
there were no lights in Marlborough
house. Pall Mall was empty and silent, and the Strand was stiangely
quiet at the theatre hour. It was the
first night at the Globe theatre, where
"Sweet Nell of Old Devry" bad returned in triumph from the provinces,
and the old play house was crowded
to welcome her. Miss Nellson has seldom acted with more pathos and dramatic force, and Frederick Terry as
"Merry Charles" was brilliantly
effective, and if the audience enjoyed
the entertainment, it did not forget
the shadow ot the impending calamity
at Osborne. When the plaudits ceased, at the close of the play, "God
Save the Queen" was Bung with fervor
and solemnity, as was done also at
every theatre and concert hall. Slowly the theatres were emptied and the
Strand, Whitehall and Piccadilly were
quiet and dreary. At midnight the
queen was still living, for tbe bells
had not begun to toll, but there was
little hope that the improvement reported in the medical bulletins would
be maintained. The last werd which
the soldiers heard on leaving Southampton at noon for South Africa was
that the queen was slaking. It was a
premature alarm that saddened them
as they headed for the open sea.
There was better news at the club
houses toward midnight, but It was
clear that there was no real hope entertained by the physicians of anything more than a transitory rally.
Tbe glorious Victoria reign was slowly, but surely, approachng an end,
and silently the pieparatlons were
making for opening the reign of Edward VII. The Archbishop of Canterbury and the Lord Chambeilain weie
at Osborne, where the Trince of Wales
could be summoned to the throne and
the prime minister was preparing lo
join th'em on the morrow, when a
council of state might be ordered and
the national anthem be changed to
"God Save the King."
London, Jan. 21.���In the closing
moments of Queen Victoria's life another grave portent arises, namely
the serious indisposition of the Prince
of Wales. He was so worried, tired
and exhausted last evening he could
not respond immediately to tbe summons from Osborne house. The most
he could do was to promise he would
leave London at 8 o'clock this morning if possible. The Prince of Wales
is spending the night at Marlborough
house and Emperor William at Buckingham palace.
London, Jan. 21.���A bright spot in
the universal gloom was the unexpected sympathy displayed by Emperor
William in giving up Important engagements to come to the deathbed of
his grandmother. "This," says the
Daily Mail, "is calculated to endear
his name to every Englishman who
feels in such an bour what true sympathy means.''
London, Jan. 21.���Throughout the
United Kingdom yesterday was a Sunday of anxiety and suspense. No one
in England outside the circle of the
court knew the real condition of the
queen, as the bulletins threw but little light ou the universal question.
The London newspapers had not
learned that her majesty had suffered
a shock of paralysis. There weie
small gatherings in the vicinity of
Buckingham palace and Marlborough

SLOCAN CITY
RIGHT IN IT
Transfer Group Taken Over
On a Bond by W. H.
Harvey.
Property Promises to Become
One of the Best In the
District,
An interesting mining deal has just
been consummated at Slocan City by
which W. II. Harvey, formerly cngi-
neei at the Chapleau mine, acquires a
working bond on the Transfer group,
one of the most promising prospects
in the Slocan City mining division.
The bond runs till November next and
the consideration for the proporty is
placed at 850,001).
The Transfer group comprises four
claims and is located across Springer
creek from the Arlington mine and on
tbe hill north ot the Chapleau. The
owners are Charles Barker and William Hicks who have held the claims
for some years, working steadily and
resisting several offers to bond the
claims at figures ranging between
830,000 and 840,000. The strong point
of the Transfer is the fact, now pretty
thoroughly established, that it has
the Arlington vein. Tbu surface
showings are away above the average
aud good results have been obtained
wherever the lode has been opened up.
At one point the vein is crosscut by
a tunnel showing a width of 10 to 12
feet. This lead carried some very rich
ore and native silver in spots. A conservative estimate of the values in
the clean shipping ore places the average per ton at over 100 ounces in silver. Shipping facilities are available
by way of the Evening Star trail
which runs within half a mile of the
property. The owners have reoently
btarted another crosscut to tap the
vein at a depth of 125 feet.
Slooan City mining men have long
regarded the Transfer as one of tbe
best propositions in the section and
are confident tbat in the hands of a
strong corporation it will rapidly develop into one of the largest producers
shipping from the town.
DESPERATE INDEED.
A Duel In Wbich One Principal is
Actually Injured.
Paris, Jan. 20.���The long expected
duel between the Count de Lubersac
and Baron de Rothschild was fought
with swords at 11 o'clock this morning on Baron Edmond de Rothschild's
estate at Boulogne sur Seine. The
carriages with the principals, seconds,
doctors and a few friends arrived
there from Paris shortly before 11.
Count de Lubersao's seconds were M.
Sohege and Count de Laborde, and
those of Baron de Rothschild, were
Baron Leonino and Viscount de Rondi.
The duel began at 11:10 and lasted
ten minutes, when Count de Lubersac
received a lunge perforating his arm
at the elbo.v to tbe armpit. The duel
was then stopped. Roth tbe count
and the baron fought most determinedly, neither flinched and neither
showed the slightest desire to spare
the other. Sixteen engagements took
place, all of a desperate   character.
IS BREAKING   DOWN.
New York, Jan. 20.���Andrew Campbell, one of the men convicted of the
murder of Jennie Bosschieter, is slowly bieaking down in the county jail
at Paterson, N. J. Campbell from
the first thought the jury would let
him out with lighter degree of crime
than any of the others, and was much
excited the night he heard the result
of the jury's deliberations.

"THE END IS NOT YET."
In all probability there has never
oeourred, in any era of history, the
world-wide sense of impending calamity and universal grief as tbat which
stirred the hearts of men and women
in all quarters of the globe oo Saturday when the first fateful bulletins,
announcing tbe serious illness and expected death of Her Moat Gracious
Majesty Queen Victoria, neve flashed to all corners of the earth, and it
was known tbat Great Britain's most
illustrious soveieign could live but a
few short hours longer. Not only was
this heartfelt anxiety manifest where
flies the British flag, but everywhere
men, women and children read with
tender sympathy the sad intelligence
which in its culmination will carry
grief and sorrow to all to whom the
English tongue iB known.
Not   only has she   commanded  the
reverent respect of all   nations as  an
ideal ruler of a mighty people but  in
every home has her beloved   name for
generations been a household word and
her devoted  motherhood   an  example
to be imitated by all women.   And so,
while   sovereigns and statesmen  are
pondering over the weighty  crisis  so
suddenly presented, from all Christian
hearts  have    arisen  fervent  prayera
that  the Divine   Ruler may,   In   His
gracious goodness, fill ber  last  hours
witb that peaee she so fitly   deserves.
Alike in every Christian church where
the English ritual] maintains, eongre
gations bowed their heads in  earnest
supplications for her peaee and safety.
To Him who roles the  Enrverse   they
prayed that our most  gracious sovereign might be spared to ns   for yet a
little while, .that tbe  shadows of  tbe
valley of death   might be   lifted, and
that Victoria, tbe  beloved  ruler of a
nation   she   has helped to   make  the
greatest   upon  earth, might   still be
left their Idol.
Last night from every British heart
went forth the prayer, "O Lord I Look
down from Heaven, heboid, visit and
relieve Thy servant Victoria, our
Queen. Look upon her with tbe eyes
of Thy mercy. Give ber comfort and
sure confidence in Thee. Defend her
f'oru the danger of the enemy and
keep her in perpetual peace and safety, through Jisub Christ our Lord.
Amen." .
LET'S SHAKE  AND MAKE UP.
The Nelson Miner accuses the Herald of undue familiarity, because a
mistake waa made in t'. e Herald columns in tbe names of Nelson's prominent citizens. In the same issue were
news items stolen bodily from the
Herald and appropriated by the Miner. The Miner should be more cautious when it indulges in captious criticism.���Cranbrook Herald.

Editor Miner:
Sir,���I^liuve read several letters in
your paper asking our city fathers to
arrange a reception for our home coming volunteers, Brown, Eaton and
others, but so far I bave not beard
of any response from our new mayor
or aldermen. Every other city in Canada has given each and every returning veteran a good loyal welcome
and yet our aldermen new and old
have'not made a single move toward
doing anything in this direction. I
think it will be a crying shame to
Nelson if these men are slighted. I
would like to bear from some more of
our citizens on tbis point.

a nuisance I I can't shout my extras,
I have them all the samel" It did
not take tbe uoy long to sell out his

VENEZUELAN TROUBLES.
United States May Ilnvo a Llttlo War
on Its HiiihIh.
Ouracoa, Dutch West Indies, Jan. 10
���The United States auxiliary cruiser
Scorpion," Lieut. -Commander M. Sargent, has just arrived^hero on her way
to Ouanicoa, Venezuela, the neurest
port to the scene of the trouhle between
the rival asphalt companies. She recently left La Guaya and brings the*
latest news of the Venezuelan troubles.
The situation is described ns being
serious. It la said that the emphatic
protiisth of the Government at Washington have been defied and that
bloodshed at the lake of the Bermuda
Ashnhalt .Co. was feared. The most
bot-headed of the foreigners in Venezuela say that If tho Washington
a*atboilties do not take steps to pro-
teot American citizens now, all foreigners may iih well leave the country.
The officers of the Scorpion are quoted
a* skying that the diplomatic corps at
Caracas is unanimous on this point.an
are all the foreigners. They admit,
however that the United States minister at Caracas, Mr. E. 11. Loomls, is
working vigorously In the effort to
arrange matters. The more recent
developments In tbe trouble in Venezuela were the seizures by the authorities at Clduid Nolvar of two steamers
belonging to the Orinoco company.
This company is an Enlglsh one, but
ninety per cent, of the capital is
American. The manager of the company bas a large fleet of steamers navigating the Orinoco River. Two of
these steamers were seized by the
Venezuelan authorities during the last
levolution and it is said they were
ruined. Tne concession of the Urinous company was recently annulled on
tbe ground that it was Illegal and
the opinion points that it will be
driven from business and that all the
money invested by the shareholders
trill be lost unless the British in-
United States governments intervene.
Mr. Loomls is using his good offices to
save tbe two steamers recently seized.
Tbe United Stated, however, has been
overwhelmed with work and the company's business bas been stopped. It
if asserted that the company has unpaid . claims against the government
for 1500,000.
London, Jan. 30.���A despatch from
Ouraooa Dutch, West Indies to Keu-
tors telegram Company, says tbe situation between tbe United States and
Venezuela bas not improved and tbat
United States Minister, Mr. Loomts,
has sent a strongly worded note which
is described as being specially an ultimatum to the Venezuelan government.
Washington, Jan. 20.���Secretary
Hay said last night that the United
States government has not authorized
Minister Loomis to present a formal
note to the Venezuelan government
and certainly nothing in tbe nature
of an ultimatum. Tbe secretary said
tbat Minister Loomis' instructions so
far have been telegraphed and bave
directed him to protest to tbe Venezuelan authorities against any despoiling of any American rights or property. Further than that the State
department has not sent forward any
definite instructions.

Mr. Frank Harman, of the firm of
Barman Bros., Kamloops, in his letter to W. 6. Harvey, F. O. M. C. I.,
of .Toronto, now in Nelson, makes the
following statments. '' Before applying
to you for treatment my eyes were
giving me so much trouble and causing so. much pain that I had quite decided to give up my business as a
blacksmith, as the glow of the forge,
and bending under horses was so
hard on them. 1 had consulted the
best eye doctors on the Pacific coast
and tbey could give me no help but I
am pleased to say that by the aid of
the spectacles you prescribed for me I
am able to work all day at the fiio
and the finest work without incurring
the least inconvenience and am entire
ly free from tbe bead and eye aches
and general defects of sight from
which I formerly suffered. I have
been wearing your glasses for nearly
three years and cannot express the
thanks I feel."

NINTH YEAE
OF THEIR LIFE
Odd Fellows ol Nelson Will
Tonight Celebrate an
Anniversary.
Nine Years Ago the  First
Lodge Was Formed In
This City.
ThU is a red letter day in the history of Independent OddfellowBhip In
Nelson. Tonight the members of
Kootenay Lodge, I. 0. 0. F., No. 10,
celebrates the ninth anniversary of
its institution and the occasion will
very naturally be one of mutual congratulation. Kootenay lodge Btarted
the last decade of the old century
with six members in a little hall on
Vernon street. It begins the first decade of the new century with 101
members in a block which is a monument to the success of the fraternal
movement in the Queen City of the
Kootenays. A glance over the history of the court will be of interest to
every reader of The Miner.
The first step toward organizing an
Odd Fellows lodge in Nelson was taken on August 4, 1801, by means of a
notice inserted in the current issue
of The Miner calling on all Odd Fel-
"ows in the town and vicinity to meet
in Odell & Squilre's tailor shop on
Monday evening, the litli instant. At
this meeting about ten of the brethren were present, among these being
Dr. E. C. Arthur, J. H. Matheson,
G. H. Colwell, E. C. Traves, G. W.
Aldous, James Neelands, Fred J.
Squire. It was unanimously decided to organize and at a later meeting
held in the early part of September
Mr. Squire was delegated to purchase
the necessary regalia. The outfit
leached Nelson in October on one of
the last steamers arriving via the Columbia river before navigation closed. Before the lodge could be formed
the charter members were required
to secure withdrawal cards from their
parent lodges and then to apply for a
dispensation from the grand lodge.
These preliminaries were concluded
by January, 1893, and on the 22nd of
that month the organisation was
effected.
George Hawley, acting grand master, G. W. Colwell, acting as past
grand master, instituted the lodge in
the Hume hall on Vernon street. The
charter members were: Dr. E. C.
Arthur, G. W. Colwell, E. C. Travea,
James Neelands, G. W. Aldous, and J.
H. Matheecn. At the lirst meeting
tbe initiations were: William Hud
son, K. Baxendale, J. Fred Hume,
and James Gilkei. On January 25,
J. F. Kilby was initiated. Since that
time the lodge has grown steadily up
to the present as Is indicated by the
following records of the annual increase in membership: 1892, 17; 1893,
15; 1894, 10; 1895, 4; 1896, 7; 1897, 9;
1898, 19; 1899,22; 1900, 33. By withdrawals and deaths tbe lodge has lost
34 members, leaving its membership
roll 101. The first vacancy in tbe
ranks by reason of death was in February, 1895, when James B. Gillis
was killed by a snowslide in the Slocan and was brought to Nelson for
burial by the fraternity. Since that
time the lodge's list of honored dead
has been swelled by the following additions: J. E. Turner, died September, 1896; John Johnson, died July,
1897; and William Hudson, died May,
1899.
The lodge met for four years In the
Hume hall, after which its quarters
were transferred to the Knights of
Labor hall. Iu November 1896 the
quarters were again moved, this time
to the central school whore the A. F.
& A. M. also held its meetings. In
1897 the small hall on Kootenay street
was erected. This soon became too
small and the lodge cast abjut for
bettor premises.
As a result the Odd Fellows Building and Investment Company was
chartered and arrangements made for
erecting the present handsome Fraternity block on the site which had
been purchased some years previous.
On May 3, 1899, tbe hall was dedicated
by the Fraternal societies,the Knights
of Pythias, as lessees,taking charge of
the first portion of the proceedings,
aud the Odd Fellows winding up the
ceremony. The block represents an
investment of $25,000 and is in every
way a credit to the order and tbe city
generally.
One of the prime factors in the
success of Court Kootenay has been
the fact tbat the men at the head of
affairs have ever been zealous in the
performance of their duties and untiring in tbe task of advancing the interest of the order. Appended is a
list of tbe lodge officers since its Institution :

THE END IS NOT YET

house. Crowds assembled to witness
the arrival cf Emperor William.
Apart from such incidents, however,
the customary quiet of a London Sunday wns not disturbed. The most
alarming reports of the day came in
the form of telegrams from the princess at Osborne house.
London, Jan. 21.���According to the
Telegraph, Emperor William has expressed a desire to be received at Osborne house, not as emperor, but as
grandson, and said on hearing of the
queen's illness: "I am my grand
mother's oldest grandson, and my
mother Is unable from illness to hasten to her bedside."
Cape Town, Jan. 20.���The news of
Queen Victoria's illness caused 3on-
sternation in Cape Town. Prayer*
were offeied at the cathedral for her
majesty's recovery.
Rome, Jan. 21.���The pope yesterday
telegraphed Cardinal Gaughan In London to express to the British royal
family the feeling of Borrow which all
Christendom shared with England,
regarding the Illness of Queen Victoria, adding: "The liberal reign
of the queen, which has permitted
the Catholic church to increase in the
United Kingdom, will leave an indelible trace upon all Christian
hearts."
New York, Jan, 20.���Mr. Isaac N,
Ford, London correspondent of the
New York Tribune, in his special ca
blegram tbis morning, says: "The
question has not been raised in any
public place, but the cabinet without
doubt has considered the expediency
for the necessity for a regency. The
Prince of Wales will become regent if
the queen dies or if the welfare of her
subjects and the interests of the state
require the transfer of the Imperial
functions to him, and the crown lawyers will have to pick and choose
among the precedents of the jcelgns of
George III., Anne and other sovereigns for one analogous to the present
emergency.
Congregational church, made the subject a feature of his invocation. He
said: "We beg of Thee, 0 Lord, that
Thy comforting Bpirit will rest tonight upon our Empire In this its
hour of anxiety, it may be sorrow.
We pray that around the royal household there may be the comforting
presence of Him who said, 'Come unto
Me all ye that are weary and heavy
laden and I will give you rest.' We
beseech of Thee that in each of the colonies there may be tonight that spirit of eloquent sympathy and confldeut
trust in Thee that will bind us closer
to Thee in this dark hour."
In the Baptist church, Rev. J. Burtt
Morgan led the congregation in prayer
us follows: "0 Lord, overshadow the
royal household with Thy presence
tonight. We pray for the nation that
its heart may be comforted and we
thank Thee for the Christian sovereign who has led the nation for so
many years. Grant that we may bear
into the future the inspiration of that
life. We also ask Thy blessing on him
upon whom the responsibility of government will Boon fall, that he may
be Impressed with the tremendous responsibilities resting upon bim and
fitted by God for his dutieB. We pray
tbat God's own annointing may be
upon him so that as king of this great
empire, under the King of Kings he
may lead the nation to a higher life."
Rev. J. H. White read a Miner bulletin to the large congregation gathered at the Methodist church, and referred to the nations'*; sorrow in feeling terms.
No reference was made to the queen's
condition at the church of Mary Immaculate. Bev, Father Ferland only
returned to the city at midnight on
Saturday and was totally unaware of
ber majesty's approaching end until
after the vesper service otherwise he
would have touched on the subject in
common with other city pastors.

LOOKED LIKE TROUBLE.
Too Much Whiskey the Cause of the
Disturbance.
The C. P. R. station was the scene
of a lively row on Saturday afternoon. Tho McCoy gang which was
taken off the Balfour extension work
on Thursday or Friday had only been
paid in part, but whut they did get
was ample for a dozen or more of the
outfit to become fighting drunk.
When the cash played out, the men
went to the depot to get the balance
of their wages. R. W. Drew was officiating as paymaster and declined to
settle with some of the party who
were obviously too drunk to take care
of the money. This decision did not
meet with the approval of the men
and for a time it looked as though the
dispute would end in a rough and
tumble fight. Mr. Drew v.ai threatened with violence but persisted in his
stand on the subject and telephoned
for the police. Chief Jarvis came down
and loaded the worst of the party into a sleigh in which he was driven to
the police station. Yesterday morning the man was put on the outgoing
steamer and put out of town.

The intelligence of the critical illness of her most gracious majesty naturally caused widespread sorrow
among the loyal citizens of Nelson.
About the streets the bulletin* from
Osborne Castle were the sole topics of
discussion, and at the churches the
services had an air of deep solemnity
which in itself testified to the depth
of feeling aroused.
At St. Saviours's chuich the rector
announced the sad tiding*, reading a
late Miner bulletin, and asked for the
prayers of the congregation at both
morning and evening services, Tbe
following prayer adapted from the order for the visitation of the sick was
used at the communion service and at
the close of evening "O Lord Look
Down From Heaven, behold, visit
and relieve Thy Bervant Victoria our
Queen. Look upon her with the eyes
of Thy mercy, give her comfort and
sure confidence In Thee, defend her
from the danger of the enemy, and
keep her in perpetual peace and
safety; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen." By a strange coincidence the
beautiful hymn, "Peace, Perfect
Peace," so suitable to such a time of
sorrow, had been arranged for tbe
evening service. After evensong the
organist played the grand old national anthem, while the congregation remained standing in their place*!
as a loving tribute, probably the last
of its kind to the memory of the
greatest aud best of English sovereigns.
St. Paul's Presbyterian church was
crowded to the doors last night and
the pastor, Rev. Dr. Wright, made a
touching reference to the queen's illness. He said: "0 God, tonight we
beseech Thee on behalf of our beloved
queen, if .she still lingers in the
body. May ber path to tbe river of
death be smooth and easy to take
should it be that she is to pass into
the life where there is no more light
or darkness. We ask Thee to bless
the bereaved nation when the head is
taken away. May it bring home to
them more vividly a " clearly that a .
are destined to mortality."
