DISBANDED
Volunteer Regiment at Vic
torla Will Be Replaced
by Regulars.
News was received yesterday that
"A" company, third Royal Canadian
regiment, stationed at Hospital Point,
across tbe bay from Victoria is to he
disbanded at once. The fact is of considerable local interest as the company
includes several Nelson men who enlisted here last summer. Among these
is Sergeant Worley.a well known Nelson man, who left the local company
as a private and attained sergeant's
stripes shortly after joining the Hospital Point garrison. Lieutenant-
Colonel Mackay, the officer commanding, was notified from Ottawa several
days ago to allow any men wishing to
do ho to take their discharge at once
and to allow the remainder to leave on
the expiration of their term of enlistment. When all are gone, the officers
and such non-commissioned officers as
may desire nnd who have the officer
commanding's recommendation, will
go to Halifax and join the R. C. R. in
garrison there, so tbat Sergeant Wor-
ley may not return here.
The government's action is said to
be due to the recommendation of Colonel Grant, Royal Engineers, who has
viewed the oompany with disfavor
ever since it was posted at Victoria.
Transportation is to be provided for
the men together with good conduct
pay accruing. A number of men bave
already left and thiB money is to be
forwarded to them.
The understanding is that on the
completion of the new barracks 500
infantry of" the regular line will be
sent to Victoria ruising the regular
garrison to a total strength of 1,000,
exclusive ofHhe navy.
MARRIAGE AND   DIVORCE   LAWS.

tlage and divorce laws of Cunuda, and
demunds thut the civil power shall require of all pin-sous marrying in Cunuda a civil murrluge which shall be
regarded as binding in ull civil courts
no mutter whut uction the church
may take. Divorce in the sume way,
he argues, ought to be within the jurisdiction of the state so far as its legal validity and consequences, including liberty of legul remurriage, ure
concerned, lie says divorce by tbe
senate is preposterous and belongs to
bygone days.

retained here heving been made ont
since Lieutenant Beer wus nppointed
recruiting officer. Recruiting was
closed here yesterduy. The number of
applicants at this point is now some
35 and as only about 25 are to be
accepted, a selection can readily be
made from the material already available.
Lieutenant Beer goes to Rossland
tomorrow evening with Dr. Kennedy,
of tbe N. W. M P., at Macleod, and
will examine recruits there on Saturday and Monday. Tlie men accepted
will be placed in charge of a non-com -

some quarters it is asserted that the
Ophlr will remain at Halifax a month
to enable the Duke and Duchess to
tour Canada. Others say the royul
party will only visit Halifax, Quebec,
Montreal and St. John. Canadians
here urge that if the royal party aie

Vuncouver, the governments of Ontario, Manitoba and British Columbia
should at once cable through tbe governor-general, urging the King to arrange for this extension of the trip.

NEW RAILWAY
FOR NEVADA
W. R. Ramsdall on the Ground
Floor in White Pine
County.
Mortality at Delamar���New
Smelting Process���Mining Notes.
Since his last visit to Nelson W. R.
Ramsdall has acquired a valuable
mining property in Nevada. On
learning that Senator Clark bad decided on building tbe Los Angeles and
Salt Lake road through south western
Utah, north western Arizona and
eastern California, Mr. Ramsdall became interested and spent some time
in the country along the line of the
proposed road. The railroad is to tap
a rich mineral belt, the development
of which hus been returded through
lack of transportation facilities. Silver-lead propositions of great value
exist but since the drop in silver it
has been impossible to work the
properties at a profit. Tbe advent of
the L. A. and S. L. is likely to inaugurate a new era of prosperity in this
district. As a result of his investigations Mr". Ramsdall bonded the
Grand Deposit group in White Pine
county, Nevada. The Grand Deposit
is a well developed copper property
comprising twelve claims aggregating
250 acres of mineral land. The ore
occurs in deposits rather than veins,
and runs 10 per ccut. copper and 15
ounces in silver. At present the nearest railroad is 100 miles distant, but
the new road is expected to operate in
the immediate district which will
materially enhance the value of the
acquisition. {Senator Clark has organized land and mineral exploration
companies for the purpose of acquiring all the agricultural and mineral
lands of merit, along tbe line of the
new road. TheBe companies are now
operating. A contract bas been let
for 100 miles of railroad from the Los
Angeles end and the entire work is to
be completed in two years.
While in this district Mr. Ramsdall
visited the quartz mines at Delamar,
Nevada, in connection with which a
condition of affairs exists which is
PROBABLY NOT PARALLELED
in the annals of tbe mining industry.
The gold quartz is of a peculiar glassy
quality, probably the result of volcanic action. The product of the mine
is treated by cyaniding and in the
course of crushing, gritty particles
arise forming an impalpable dust
which penetrates to the lungs and
bronchial tubes ot the mill hands with
disastrous results. Report has it that
during the five or six years in which
the property has been operating several hundred men have succumbed
to pulmonary troubles caused by the
action of these gritty particles on the
respiratory organs, but Mr. Ramsdall
was assured by one of the engineers
at the mine that the number of deaths
dill not exceed 50. Naturally these
men demand high wages und few of
them slay longer than Is required to
secure u stake to get out witb.
��� ��   ���
NEW SMELTING PROCESS.
A mining man recently arrived from
California states that a series of") interesting experiments !s being made
with a new process of smelting. The
principle Involved in the new apparatus is that of substituting a suction
draft for tho air blower usually employed. It is asserted that the new
process handles tho most refractory
ores with ease, reduces the original
cost of constructing smelters hy 05 to
75 per cent, and materially lowers
the cost of subsequent operations.
Prospectors' furnaces handling six
tons are built on this plan and used
with considerable success.

STRIKE ON THE IIOMESTAKE.
Bossland, Feb. 20.���An Impoitant
Hntl of ore of a pay grade has been
made in the Uomestake at a point 1,-
218 feet from the portal of the lower
tunnel. The ore chute,which Is of pay
grade, has been drifted on for 20 feet.
The ledge is between solid walls and
is below the urea of surface disturbances und Mr. S. W, Hall, the superintendent, is satisfied that the
Homestake will now make a mine.
The ledge Is from  15 to 20 feet widej
and the pay chute is at least five feet
wide and may be wider. The strike
is important for the reason that it is
the best and largest body of ore that
bas yet been locatedjin the south belt.
It has caused considerable excitement
here.
* ���   ���
W.E. Boie of Slocan City was In the
city yesterday enroute to Kaslo where
he will consult W. II. Jeffrey In connection with the Black Prince deal.
It is understood that the prospect for
closing the deal is very favorable,particularly as the property is improving
constantly as development proceeds.

Toronto, Feb. 20.���W. H. Aldrldge
und VV. B. Devereuux, agent for Good
eiham and Blackstock ure or. their
way to inspect the Trail smelter, on

NEW POSTOFFICE
Quebec Firm Has Contract
and Will Start Work
at Once.
The new Nelson postoffice and customs building will be erected by Vien
and LeHolne, a Quebeo firm. Word
was received here yesterday to this
effect and it is understood that the
successful contractors will be on the
giound here within a week. Mr.
Yien is from Hull, Quebec, and Mr.
Lelloine from Pembroke, Quebec.
Local contractors who prepared bids
on the building are naturally somewhat disappointed that the contract
went out of tbe province but the general feeling is thut their figures bused
on actual experience of working conditions here were us reasonable as
eould be made to ensure a fair profit.
The construction will require the use
of a large amount of granite and marble which can only be handled at
heavy expense. The building will
take at least a year to erect aud this
period may be extended six months.
James A. Macdonald, of the firm nf
Cane & Macdonald, has been "appointed supervising architect and in tins
capacity will be constantly engaged
on tbe work. His duties are to see
that the contractors carry out tbe
specifications fully. The figure at
which Vien and Le Hoine secured the
contract bas not been announced but
it has been stated tbat the building
complete will cost not less thun $70,
000.
RESISTANCE   IS FUTILE.
Acting-President Schalkburger Gives
Boers Some Good Advice.
Pretoria, Feb. 20.���Reports from Ly-
denburg Bay that acting-President
Schalkburger, addressing n guthering
of burghers recently, told them thut
he now recognized thut their cause
was quite hopeless und that 11 prolongation of hostilities was futile. Per
sonally, he added, be would Buy that
if surrender was inevitable, it was
foolish to surrender in twos and
threes, us the proper course wus to
come to u general agreement und
surrender as u nut ion.
EXPORTS  AND IMPORTS.
Trade With America is Still Larger
Thun With Great Britain.
Ottawa, Feb. 20.���Trade and nuv-
igatiou returns laid on the table of
the house today, show an increase In
imports over 18lil) of 820,858,205 und In
exports of 832,0(18,818. Tho duty collected wus 828,880,110 against MS, 784,-

Britain $152,520,0118.
BONUSSED COMPANY SMASHES.
Toronto, Feb. 20.���The Hunk nf
Montreal was this morning given authority by Justice Fulconbridge tn sell
the stock and materials in process of
manufacture at tho Abbott-Mitchell
Rolling mills, Belleville. The suit
gives evidence of the total collapse of
a company which two years ago secured a bonus of 855,000 fiom Belleville
to assist in establishing liig rolling
mills that would do much to mnke
tbe eity prosperons. Belleville has
paid about $20,000 of the bonus.
BLUFF WAS
GIVEN AWAY
London  Times'  and   Other
Criticisms Make .Matters
Harder.
Salisbury Knew All About It
Notwithstanding Berlin
Query.
T.r-ilnri, Feb. 2U.���It was learned by
u iipiesentutive of the Associated
Preba today that tbe British government is without, nny further official
explanation of Field Marshal Count
von Wald.-rsee's action in planning an
offensive expedition into the interior
'if Culpa, The government expects to
receive tomorrow advices from Berlin
oinciail.v setting foith the motive for
the recent orders issued by the com-
luundcr-ki-ehief of the international
forces in China. In fact such explanation has been asked for in order that
the cabinet at .Friday's meeting may
huve some satisfactory basis for its
deliberations on Chinese matters. However, it is pretty well unofficially understood in Downing street that vop
Waldersee's action was due to a desire to
BLUFF   THE   CHINESE.
The uotion of the British members of
parliament and papers, especially the
London Times, in calling it a "bluff"
causes the greatest chagrin and has
given rise to the feeling that it is
impossible to meet Chinese finesse
with similar weapons.
"The concert of the powers," said
nn official to tlie representative of
the Associated Press, "is so unwieldy
und is composed of so many different
section and sub-sections, that diplomacy is out of tho question. If every
move made is subject to similar treatment to this last, we shall be driven
to settle the Chinese difficulty by pure
brute force, or not at all."
It does not require any great degree
of deduction to assume that Lord Salisbury, in spite of bis professed ignorance und tbe enquiry at Berlin, was
fairly well informed as to the true inwardness of Count von Waldersee's
recent orders.
KING EDWARD'S MOVEMENTS.
On Suturday He Will Visit Ills Sister,
the Dowager Empress.
London, Feb. 20.���The announcement of Saturday as the date of King
Edward's departure for Friedriohof,
has revived the stories that his trip
will be extended to Berlin to repay
Emperor; William's visit to England
at the time of Queen Victoria's death
and that he will go thence to Ben
mark. At present, however, His Majesty has no intentions of so doing. He will merely pay u strictly
private visit of a few days to the Dowager Empress Frederick. He will
not he accompanied by the Queen, it
is probable that at the end of March.
King BdWBld and Queen Alexandra
will go to Copenhagen, whence King
Edward will visit Prince Ileniy of
Prussia, nt Kiel.
KITCHENER   NEARLY TAKEN.
Dewet Has (lot Away Again���Kruger
May Soon Return.
London, Feb. 21.���Lord Kitchener's
second narrow escape from capture
culls out newspaper warnings us to the
(lunger of his rapid lllttings by train
from place to place. It Is considered
better for him to remain in Pretoria
than to risk upsetting his carefully
elaborated plan of campaign.
As Lord Kitchener is now back in
Pretoria, the Inference Is that General
Dewet bus again escaped from tho
supposed cordon. There Is no further
DewS nf General French's pursuit of
Uenerul Botha.
Stutemetits emanate from both Pretoria und Brussels thut Kruger contemplates returning to South Africa.
It is said that he has just finished
writing a memorial on the war wbich
will be sent to the European governments and to President McKinley.

UNNECESSARY AGINATION.
The young people's societies of the
city churches have considered it expedient to make complaint against
what they term "aoonditlon of affairs
in Nelson utterly at variance with
Christian principles, good government
and the laws of our country," and in
a sliong resolution, which was passed
at their regular monthly meeting on
Tuesday evening, severe specific
charges arc made. Those charges mayor may not be true. It is not intended in this article to enter into a
discussion on that point. The Miner
wishes to point out that in its opinion
there is great danger of people with
excellent intentions going too far in
the clamor for civic moral rectitude.
What are the facts'.' Can it be denied
that Nelson today is one of the most
orderly and law-abiding towns in
Canada; that it is remarkably free
from crime, and that there is an astonishing absence of those vices which
are prevalent in most mining communities'* We think not. And do the
very excellent people who ure eager for
more reform realize that when compared with coast cities���and, in fact,
many interior towns���Nelson is much
the better place morally? Sometimes
it is an act of wisdom to leave well
enough alone ; and we think that in
this instance any disposition to complain nbout the mornl condition of
Nelson might very well be curbed until an occasion arises when there is
more legitimate excuse for exercising
it. One of the speakers at the meeting
of the young people's societies at
which the resolution we have referred
to was passed made the remark that
it were better to "let sleeping dogs
lie." He is right. There is no necessity for a moral reform movement ib
Nelson at the present moment. Perhaps there ore minor misdemeanors
snd offences uguinst the luwsin some
instances j but they ure of so triviul a
character compured with what occurs
in other cities that there is no just
ground for complaint. It must be remembered that Nelson is in the center
of a mining district, and the point at
which congregate large numbers of
mine laborers. The latter form a
class which takes its fun or recreation
in a fashion somewhat different from
that which suits people who dwell
continually in the city. Laboring for
months in the mountains, cut off from
contact with civilization in some instances, it is only natural that when
these men return to town they should
Beek relaxation from the strain which
they have been subjected to; and tbat
their conduct is not more open to criticism than it is is cause for congratulation. No; there is nothing much to
compluin of regarding moral conditions in Nelson, and we think the action of the young people's societies in
striving for greater perfection nt
this time is to be deprecated. It must
not be understood that The Miner is
decrying the aspirations of the shurch
workers. On the contrary, we sympathize with them in their desire to
see Nelson all that it ought to be in
the way of moral cleanliness; but we
think it would be a mistake to hope
for conditions which aru plainly beyond attainment.
THE PUBLIC LIBRARY.
The maintenance of the public
library is a question whicli is just
now receiving consideration in some
quarters. The Miner is of the opinion
that it would he very greatly in the
interosts of Nelson if the city took
over the library and run it us a civic
institution, instead of allowing it to
be supported by private subscriptions,
us at present. To the ordinary individual it would appear thut a city
whicli contemplated paying Its mayor
a salary much In excess of that puid
similur officials in cities three times
its size could very well give consider-
ution to the idea of supporting a public library. Hut, aside from that
point, all will admit that Nelson is
now of sufficient importance to have a
public library. It is one of the moat
necessary features of a city's institutions; und it requires no urgument to
have it admitted thut it would be
much appreciated in Nelson, where
there is a population peculiarly in
need 01 some place where an hour
may be spent pleasantly and profitably. ___________

Today the provincial legislators as
semble at Victoria forthe deijpatr
of business. Tlie BeBsion is likely I
prove s more thun usually interestin;
one. It is to be hoped that any contemplated legislation affecting th��
mining district will be given thorough
consideration, so that the mistakes
of the past may be avoided.
Joseph Murtin is reported to be disgusted with tbe result of the recent
bye-election in Vancouver-so much so
that he has offered to resign and quit
polities. Should this prove to be true
we suggest that thanksgiving meetings be held at once all over the province and thut bon-fires be lighted on
all the mountain peaks, tbat tbe glad
tidings may become known far and
near.
Mrs. Stevens, of tbe Toronto W. C.
T. U. says the women of Canada are
determined to have temperance even if
they huve to resort to the same methods as are employed by Mrs. Nation in
Kansas. If Mrs. Stevens had not thus
spoken she might have continued for
an indefinite period posing us apeison
possessed of some common sense. But
perhaps she does not mind making a
fool of herself.
It seems a sufe prediction that for
some time to come China will continue to be a centre of considerable
interest. What is going to happen
no one seems to know ; and the columns of stuff which are written
about the operations there, cast but
little light upon tbe situation. It requires no stretch of the imagination to
picture a terrible conflict some of
these days between the hordes of
slant-eyed heathens and the western
powers.     	
On the authority of W. E. Zwieky,
manager of the Payne mine, it is stated that there is an extreme likelihood
of a number of the galena properties
being forced to close down if some
steps are not immediately taken to
remedy tbe situation which has been
created by the smelter embroglio.
This would seem to indicate that we
are face to face with a very serious
condition of affairs, lt is sincerely
to be hoped that a way out of the
difficulty may soon be found.
Mr. Robinson, member for West Elgin, in the house of commons, has
given notice of a resolution to do
away with the present system of free
transportation to members of parliament, and to make it compulsory on
all roads receiving a franchise to
give passes to members, and that no
mileage indemnity in future be paid.
Mr. Robinson's idea is a sensible one,
but there is little likelihood of him
having the satisfaction of seeing it
carried into effect. Few members
will be found agreeing to a proposal
which touches their pockets so seriously. And, perhaps, after all, that
is only human nature.
GURRENT COMMENT
The railway question may be a big
me to tackle, but it will never be any
smaller than it is now.���Toronto
Star.
As an illustration of the good that
Carrie Nation is doing there were several instances where she smashed saloons and drew immense crowds. After
she had gone the crowds promptly entered the saloons to view the wreckage
and buy drinks. Result was the saloon keepers did a recoid business
and there were more drunks floating
around than ever before.���Montreal
Herald.
Mr. Gilinour, M. P. P., Bays that
"the province is being governed in the
interests of the Island, and tbat the
Mainland will get the cold shoulder."
We do not propoBe to reply to such
nonsense, und only refer to it to express surprise thut Mr. Gilmour
should commit himself to uny such
views, and should seek to stir up a
sectional feeling that bas happily
almost passed away.���Victoria Colonist.
While the government Is giving
bonuses it should not overlook the
gold-copper miners. Certainly give
the silver-lead men 81 a ton, but the
powers thut be should not muke fish of
one class of miners und fiesh of another, nnd so, if there ure to be bonuses
given, the copper-gold miners would
feel slighted if they are left out in
the cold. They are producing more
wculth thun the silver-lead men, and
aie, at least, entitled to the Bame consideration nt the hands of the administration.���Rossland Miner.
Prosperity in South East Kootenay
is plainly evident, and everywhere
there is a rustle being made to have
a Shure of it, and everybody In the
Fort Steele district should feel thank
ful far the excellent opportunities
there will he for rustling in 1901.

IHE MUSICAL ASS.
The labia which I bow present
Occurred to m. tiy accident
And, wliether bad or excellant.
la merely ao by accident.
A stupid ua thla morning went
Into a field by accident'
And cropped bia (ood and waa contaart
Until he apted by accident
A flute which some vUivious feat
Had left behind by accident,
When, anffllng it with ea<;er scent.    ���
He breathed on it by accident
And made the hollow iiislrumeat
Emit a sound by accident.
"Hurrah, hurrah!" exclaimed the brute.
''How cleverly I played the flute!"
A fool, in spite ol nature's bent,
May shine for once���by accident.
-From   the Spanish  of  Tomaa  Yrcarte  by
BockliU.     	
FEAR OF LIGHTNING STORMS.
Ncrron.   Per.on.   Often   Victim.   tsf
Needle.. IusTerlnaj.
The keen sulTcring which some undergo
just in advance of or during I thunderstorm is of 11 dual nature. Th. sense of
Impending danger alarm, and terrilie.,
but there Is also a depression of spirits
which is physical sad real brought about
by some a, yet unknown relation between tlie uervous system and conditions
of air pressure, humidity and purity. The
suffering due to depression and partial
exhaustion requires from those wbo are
strong Hympnlhy rather than ridicule.
The suffering due to alarm aud fright,
however, is unnecessary. It is largely
tbe work of tbe imagination. To a nervous nature there ia something appalling
in the wicked, spiteful gleam of the lightning aud tbe crash and tumult of thunder. But such a one should remember
that the flash Is almost always far distant aud that thunder can do no more
damage than the low notes of a church
organ.
The question Is often asked, "Do trees
protect?" Tbe answer is that the degrees of protection will vary with th*
character of the tree and its distance
from a water course, An oak is more liable to lightning stroke thau a beech. The
character of tlie wood. th. area of leafage, the eiteut and depth of root, will
determine tbe liability to stroke.
Another question which is often asked
is whether there is danger aboard a large
steamship during a thunderstorm. Oo
the contrary, there are few safer places.
Sufficient metal with proper superficial
area is interposed in the path of tbe
lightning aud its electrical energy converted, into harmless heat and rapidly
dissipated.
Accidents occur chiefly because the victims generally place themselves lu the
line of greatest strain and thus form part
of the path of discharge. For this reason
i( is uot wise to stand under trees, near
flagpoles or masts, in doorways, ou porches, close to fireplaces or near barns.
Those who are not exposed In any of
these ways may feel reasonably safe. It
should be remembered in the event of accident that lightning does not always kill.
It more often results in suspended animation than in somatic death. Therefore, in
case of accident, try to restore animation,
keep tbe body warm and send for a phy-
siciun without delay.���Century.
The Self Reliance of American..
Above all the American is persounl. He
is responsible to himself. He is ready lo
declare at any time. "My deeds, upon my
head." Some of us go t* church. We
read In our service books, "From all evil
and mischief, from sin, from the crafts
and assaults of tbe devil, good Lord, deliver us." We know that this is only a
form of words. W. rely upon got li ing
intangible. We bave the words and the
habit of repeating them by inheritance.
We trip over them while w* accept nothing Dei gratia, nor do we shirk our own
responsibility in affairs by pleading a special order of Providence. The child la
taught that if he walks into mischief nnd
is caught at it the excuse that he was unduly persuaded Into evil doing will not
save him from the retributive Rlipper.
The school and college boy and girl pay
the piper personally for ail unlawful
dancing. Tbe. man behind the pluw, the
man behind the counter and the man behind the gun know tbat results depend.���
Bait Culture.
Could Sea a. Well Either Way.
Out at the local school where the blind
children are taught the little ones become
very expert in running about aud avoiding danger. They play gniiies together
aud display remarkable dexterity, dodging trees and person* iu a most remarkable manner.
When a Plain Dealer representative)
was visiting the school tbe otber day, bis
attention wag. attracted by a bright faced
Utile colored girl, who was dancing and
dashing about the yard In keen delight,
despite the fact that she is entirely bliud.
Pretty soon she started to running
backward. The superintendent noticed
ber.
"Bessie," he said, "don't run backward
or you'll get a fall."
" 'Deed I wou't, sir," was tbe ready response. "I kin see jest as well buck'ard
as ror'ardI"���Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Hart Her Vanity.
It Is tbe respectful belief of the young
people In the advan'���d years of their elders which administer! to the latter the
severest blows to tbeir vanity. A young
woman was, entertaining ber niece, not
such a very small girl, though she hud
not attained the woman's estnte. To her
the aunt, whom she had known always
as a ji'invn woman, seemed old, quite old.
So when, the .aunt, showing her a beautiful box, expatiated upon Its antiquity and
thut It hod been in tbe family 50 years,
tbe maiden, anxious to be appreciative,
exclaimed with something like reverence
In her voice:
"9pw well you have kept- It!"���New
York Times.
Gr_>alui|i|>rr Glacier.
Among the glaciers found in the Rocky
mountains is Grasshopper glacier, whicli
derives its name from the enormous quantity cf grasshopper remains, that are
foun,dyon and in the glacier. Periodically
the grasshoppers take their flight southward and must cross the mountains.
Their, jtayorite route seems to be across
the wide glacier, and in the passage
scores of thousands of them fritccmnb to
the r|gQr ot cold and .wind, fall helpless
upon the snow arid are finally entombed

One ol Uncle Sam's Old Warrant OIB-
cera Relates an Incident to Show
How Wide Awake They Can Be
When the Occasion Demands It.
"Whenever yon hear a man employ
the expression "fell thnt to the marines,'
with an intonation that attempts to pie-,
ture the sen soldier as the most gullible
of human propositions, in uniform or out
of it, you may safely conclude that that
man doesn't know what he is talking
about," said a wan-ant officer of the unvy
who served for many years ns u master
at arms. When I wns u Jimmy Legs, as
the bluejackets call a ship's muster at
arms, I came very close to losing the rating badge off my sleeve and the brass
buttons off my blouse through the foxi-
ness of a pair of murines on board my
ship.
"One of the best sea soldiers I was
ever shipmate with was an Irishman���
call him Jim Ooi'ligau���who hnd the corporal's chevrons when he joined the ship
I wns the Legs of. He cume aboard nt
the Mare Island navy yard before we
pulled up our mud hook for a cruise down
the west coast of .Mexico and Central
and South America. He wns a rattling
good soldier, a clenu. spick and span ninn
who had in his ditty box a degree thnt
he had tnken nt the University of Dublin. He hud but one apparent fault���
the one that doubtless worked him into
a government straight uniform ns a soldier of the sen���which wns nn nbiding
love for hot nnd rebellious liquors. He
kept this rum pnssion down while on
bourd ship, but whenever he 'hit the
beach' he drank five glasses of liquor to
the one glass tossed off by any of bis
companions, murines or soldiers.
"From a quiet, reserved man he
changed into a fighting maniac when
drunk. Oorrignn didn't go ashore from
the time he joined the ship until we
pulled into the harbor of Aeapulco. Then
he went over the side, nnd within UU
minutes ufter he put his foot on the
bench he was fighting drunk on mescal
and knocking down Greasers in sets of
fours. He didn't show up aboard for
four days, breaking his liberty three
days. He was still drunk and ugly when
he reported himself to tlie officer of the
deck. The officer of the deck snid lo
him, 'Well, Corrigun, you've made u mess
of it this time���three days overdue aud
still in your potations.' And Cori-igan
made for him.
"It means denth in some of the world's
navies even in time of pence for an enlisted man to raise his hand to an officer.
but the punishment is a bit less severe in
our outfit. Corrignn was beaten down
and overcome after u terrific struggle.
He wus put in double irons in the brig,
and general court martini chnrges were
immediately preferred aguinst him. He
was to be shipped up to Mure Island,
with an escort, on one of the up going
P.-nama boats, for his general court martini, and the lenst he could expect was
dishonorable discharge snd three years
at the smallest calculation ut burd labor
in the Mare Island naval prison. There
wasn't to be a boat up bound tor Sun
Francisco for ten days or so, snd we
were booked to remnin ut Acupulco for a
couple of weeks.
"Corrigun was quiet and incidentally
pretty sore in more wnys than one when
he came out of his mescal trance. Inasmuch as the temperature of the brig was
about 120 degrees nnd the steiimer would
not be along for ten duys, he wns given
the liberty of the ship during the day
and only confined in the brig ufter 'pipe
down.' The top sergennt of tbe murine
guard and myself were ordered to wntch
him closely to see that he didn't go over
the side.
"Corrignn's only chum and confidant
aboard was another murine, also an
Irishman���call him Mike Gallagher���
who, like Mulvaney, hud often been 're
jooced' from the corporal's rate. He was
then a private. Corrigan und Gallagher
were noticed to have their heads together
a good deal while the former wns waiting for the steamer to come along nnd
take bim up to the navy yard for trial,
hut 1 didn't suspect anything.
"One afternoon Gallagher 'put in' for
liberty. Liberty parties used to leave
the ship in thut port shortly before 8
o'clock in the evening. On the afternoon
before Gallagher put his name down for
liberty a young ensign hnd joined the
ship, arriving on a south bound Panama
bout. When the new ensign, who wus
the officer of the deck, started to call off
the names of the men in the liberty party, among the first was thut of Michael
Gallagher. When Gallagher's name was
called off, Jim Corrignn, spick nnd spun
In his best uniform, stepped forward, saluted, said 'Here, sir,' and walked down
the ladder to the launch. The ensign
didn't know his face from Gallagher's,
having just joined the ship the day before. The is men in the liberty party
knew, though, uml the audacity of Cor-
rigun's move itlllllii'il them. Tbey understood It iustuutiy, him ever, und it wasn't
up to them to say anything.
"The liberty pnrty n-ns checked off on
the book, and nwny went tlie cutter to
the shore, Corrigan sitting in the stern
sheets us cool as a cucumber. The other
men in the cutter didn't Bay anything to
him. Mcn-o'-wnr's men ure not talkative under such circumstances. Corrigan
stepped off the cutter, mnde straight for
a place where he know he could hire a
horse, and within half an hour nfter he
left the ship he wns striking into the Interior for the rnilrond. He hnd $1100 in
gold, the suvings of a former enlistment,
along with him. He has never been heard
of since.
"When the liberty pnrty left the ship,
Gallagher wns hiding under n tarpaulin
on the to'gnllunt fo'c'sle. When darkness fell with tropicnl suddenness, he let
himself down the unchor chains, swam
ashore, and the next morning he returned
with his liberty pnrty, clean and sober.
I had missed Corrignn when I hunted for
bim at 'pipe down' to put him in tlie brig
for the night. I was responsible for him,
but 1 never suspected how the trick hnd
been turned until the day Gallagher was
paid off, when he told me nbout it in a
burst of rummy, conl'ulcnee. I never
'peached,' although the job came within
an see of getting me 'busted' to the rate
of an ordinary seaman." ��� Wnshlngton

Ml'MBO JUMBO.
Who  and   What   Is  This  Character
Whose Name Is So Familiar.
Mumlio Jumbo is by bis very name as
attraction to us. The ubove "character"
is Miihummah .lainboh in his unabridged
nnnie, und he is a noisy man of the
woods along the Munde, or Mundingos,
in western Africa. The traveler Moore
was the first person to introduce him to
white folks. He is the savage man of
tlie forest and is more important through
tlie noisy train of followers that accompany him than by any authority of bis
owu.
This mysterious personage nlways np-
peiirs in u horrid disguise, und at night
only. The scope of his existence, or bis
inison d'etre, is thut ot frightening th��
women of these west African settlements, and, to tell the truth, they are
terribly afraid of him. Nobody who
hears him first will admit that the shouts
und cries he emits nre those of u human
being. He wraps himself in a loug dress
made of tree barks up to nine feet in
length nnd crowned by n wisp of straw.
When a man hus u quarrel with his wife,
Miiinbo Jumbo is usked to interfere and
pacify, but nine times out of ten the
husband is found to he right, and the
wife ull wrong. Persons dressed in this
queer suit ure free to give any orders
they see fit, nnd all present have to uncover their heads. When women see
him coming, they run sway to bide, but
the man in the Mumbo Jumbo dress will
immediately call them buck und make
them sit down or dunce. Should they
remonstrate or resist, they are seized
and whipped severely.
His followers constitute a society or
club, witb strict rules and pledges of secrecy, to which they are bound by outh.
Oue of these is not to divulge anything
about the "order" to nny woman nor to
any man not initiated. Boys under 111
years of age are not admitted. Any
oath sworn to in Mumbo Jumbo's nume
is absolutely binding, and contraventions
nre punished with severity. The members are suid to speak also a dialect of
their own, which is kept secret from the
females���another stratagem by which
the men seek to keep the females in awe
and subjection.
Mungo Park and other explorers noticed the use of this ragamuffin accouter-
meut in most towns along the Gambia
river and always for the drustical purpose aforementioned. Indeed the men,
decked with this scarecrow dress, were
deuling out with whips and clubs the
most unmitigated and brutul kind of
"justice" to women either guilty or suspected of guilt, always amid the ncclu-
mutions of the "mob power." No doubt
this singular society nets as n sort of police against wrongdoers, but none cun
define tbe arbitrary principles which
prompt them to action. ��� Journal of
American Folklore.
THE NEW PARTNER.
He Made a Wonderfnl Chance la the
Firm's Business Methods.
Bullies nre not confined to uny particular walk in life, und ull have that underlying wenkness thut is developed when n
bluff fuils tbem.
There is an old gentleman in Detroit
who might be culled Peace, so gentle is
his nature and so deficient is he in com-
bativeness. He hns been greatly imposed upon by some mean enough to take
advantage of his disposition. Becently
he took u partner in, his son, a strapping
young fellow, who pulled in "varsity"
crew und wus the all round athlete of his
class.
"Is this Peace?" he was asked the other day when he answered the telephone.
It was. "Well, sir, 1 got your impudent
letter. Thut stuff I sold you was just
what I said it was und just what
you ugreed to pny for it. What do you
mean by telling mo I sent you an inferior
grade of goods?"
"I think you did." And the lusty
youth purposely weakened his voice.
"Whnt, you old shrimp! You dure accuse me of rascality! I'll be down there
inside of half an hour, nnd if you don't
apologize and then settle, I'll use you for
a club to wreck the office. I'll show
you!" And the roar would have terrified
the timid old gentleman.
Young Peuce got his futher to go see
about some stationery for the new firm,
set a table and a few chairs against the
walls nnd then wuited. The bully cume���
big, red, noisy und abusive. For about
a minute he had vague thoughts of a
windmill, a freight train aud an earthquake in conjunction. When the old gentleman returned, everything looked natural except the grinning office boy and the
trembling creditor!
"Mr. Peace," snid the terror tamely,
"I'm sorry 1 did not send the goods you
ordered. I'll tuke them off your hands,
or you enn pay me whnt you think is
right."���Detroit Free Press.

The Clerk Who Saves.
Every business man stops on Jan. 1
of each year and takes a enreful inventory of his affairs. His books show him
tbe expenses of the year, and It is rare
Indeed where a study of these does not
surprise him by showing Into what a
large sum little items will grow. If every clerk would also scrutinize his expenditures ns carefully for the yeur thnt
is pust, he would be dull indeed if he did
not gain some new light and rise from
the task with stronger resolutions foi

Forest Dwarfs Want to Oo ana See
King Edward.
London, Feh. 20.���Advices received
here today from Men go, Uganda Protectorate, say the f.rouhle threatened
over the collecting ot taxes has heen
surmounted. The Uganda natives
have paid in full for the current year
which is approximately _00,000 sterling. A considerable portion was paid
by the king. The compounds surrounding the government headquarters at 1'ort A lie resemble a zoological
garden, the contributions including
five elephants, some zebias, chimpanzees, hogs, antelopes, poicupines,
snakes and monkeys.
A band of Congo forest dwarfs recently visited Sir Henry Johnston, the
special commissioner for the Uganda
protectorate. They took home such
glowing accounts of their reception
that tbe whole tribe of forest dwarfs
went to Tora on the border near Men-
go.and refused to return to the forest.
They insist on proceeding overland to
greet the liritish King, and brand as
false the representations made to
tliem that the sea intuiveuos.
NEW YORK STATE CANALS.
The Gigantic Plan Proposed by State
Engineer llond.
Albany, N. Y., Feb. 20.���A marvelous system of state canals, with boats
to be run by electricity and to be 150
feet long by 25 feet wide with a draft
of 10 feet and to travel in fleets going
from Albany to Iluffalo in less than
three days, is the plan presented by
State Engineer Bond and a capable
board of engineers to Governor Odell.
The system is to be built for seven
million less than that proposed by
the canal commission appointed by
Governor Roosevelt. The canals will
be able to carry 15,000,000 tons of
freight in a season of seven months.
For building an Erie barge canal on
the route favored by State Engineer
Hond it��will cost 849,000,000;for deepening the Oswego canal to nine feet
it will cost 8805,020,and for deepening
the Champlain canal to six feet it
will cost 85,472,000, a total cost for
canal improvements of $55,331,02(1.
A TURBULENT RE1CIISRATH.
Vienna, Feb. 20.���There was a repetition today of the turbulent scenes
marking most of the sittings of the
Reichsrath which have compelled the
president to close the session. Tbe
trouble arose over the president's
statement that ho proposed to use his
right of censorship in regard to interpellations. Tbe Czechs and pan-
Germans simultaneously attempted to
make speeches in their respective lan
guages. Pandemonium followed and
objectionable epithets were hurled
broadcast. The young Czechs forced
their way to the presidential chair
and bombarded the president with
paper balls, whereupon the sittings
were suspended amid scenes of great
uproar.

PENNSYLVANIA   AT HENLEY.
London, Feb. 20.���The definite de
cision of the university of Pennsylvania to send a crew to compete at the
Henley regetta in July is hailed in
rowing circles as calculated to give an
impetus to foreign entries ami to make
the meeting more interesting than
last year. Rowing men are much interested in an experiment of the Cambridge oarsmen who are now training
for the inter-varsity boat racejto take
place on March 30. By special request of a professional athlete the crew
is attending a class for the practice of
the strong-man theories of developing
muscle and wind.

wounded in the raid, is not expected

PANAMA INSURRECTION.
Kingston, Jamaica, Feb 20���The
British steamer Louisiana from Colon
reports that when she left there on
Monday the rebel force still held their
positions in the vicinity of the railway between Colon and Panama, but
that there had been no serious
fighting. Liberal sympathizers attempted to set fire to the town of
Bocus^del Toro a fortnight ago. A
policeman discovered the plot just as a
powder tiain was about to be ignited.
The discovery created consternation.
The streets are now patrolled nightly by the business men of the coinmun-
ity. 	
NORFOLK'S FOOLISH BREAK.
London, Feb. 20.���The Italian
charge d'affaires,in acknowledging the
resolutions passed by the Protestant
Alliance condemning the Duke of Norfolk's temporal power utterances at

bound by so many ties of sympathy
and friendship.

A GOOD THING.
German Syrup is the special pre
scription of Dr. A. Boshee, a celebrated German Physician, and is acknowledged to be one of the most fortunate discoveries in Medicine. It
quickly cures Coughs, Colds and Lung
troubles of the severest nature, removing, as it does, the cause of the affec-
ton and leaving the parts in a strong
and healthy condition. It is not an
experimental medicine, but has stood
the test ol years, giving satisfaction
in every case, which its rapidly increasing sale every season confirms.
Two million bottles sold annually.
Bosche's German Syrup was introduced in the United States in 180H,
and is now sold in every town and
village in the civilized world. Three
doses will relieve any ordinary cougS.

NEW YORK COPPER MINE.
New York, Feb. 20.���It is a fact
not generally known that within half
an hour's ride of this city are located
valuable copper mines. The headquarters of the company *'re in Wall
street, where may be seen maps
and specimens of the ore. Many
leading bankers snd capitalists of the
metropolis are interested in the development of tho property which
consists of about 150 acres of land
in Bergen county, New Jersey. At
q-reat expense the copper strata nave
been explored and developed by means
of tunnels, shafts and drifts, and a
drain tunnel, amounting all told, to
about 0,000 feet of underground development work. The most competent
and experienced copper experts have
examined the property aud reported
on the same to the effect that there is
now about 5.000,000 tons of copper ore
in Bight ready for mining and milling
which makes the property and the
stock of tho company exceedingly valuable. The ores will be treated by the
most modern processes���namely the
electrolithlc method, crushing, roasting, leaching with dilute sulphuric
acid solution, and depositing the copper into plates 20 by 3(1 inches by electricity, thus making a finished, merchantable product right on theground.

ALTERING THE SEWER���
City Engineer McCulloch starts the
sewers department crew at work today relaying a portion of the outlet at
the foot of Cedar street today. The
present tile pipe is to be replaced
���with steel pipe for '200 feet from the
water line south. A valve will be
placed in the new section by means of
which it will be possible to flush the
sewer at any ti*ne. Stoppages at various times have   rendered   this  course
necessary.

DIDN'T QUIT
Because Ehe Never Started.
Many people have een interested
in the reports of persons made ill by
coffee drinking and cured bv quitting
and using Postum Food Coffee. Of
course, the leaving off of the poison of
coffee by highly organized people
whose systems are affected by it, is a
great help in itself, but the biggest
end of the help is in the elements furnished by Postum Food Coffee. This
is a true food drink of the highest
character.
A lady who has never been addicted
to tea or coffee drinking, was reduced
by stomach trouble to a condition of
nervous prostration with heart trouble, insomnia, and finally got in such
a weak condition that the Doctors
said she could not get well, and it
was thought she would live but a
short time.
Someone brought Postum Food Coffee to her attention, she quit taking
Medicine and went to using Postum.
She says,"It did not sour on my stomach and I began to feel better at
once. I kept on using it day after
day and now am well and strong and
have better health than I have had for
years, and am must sincerely thankful that Postum Food Coffee was invented and I was led to use it."
This is a direct evidence of the fact
that has so often been stated that Postum is a nourishing food drink containing the elements of phosphate
of potash and albumen that go to
build up the gray matter in the nerve
cells in the brain and all over the
body. It does not contain medicine
of any sort or kind, only the elements
placed iu the cereals of the field by
the Almighty Creator, and selected
and made use of in the form of u liquid food by the inventor.
"My husband is a grocer and has
been out of health for some time past.
Since he has found what Postum
has done for me he has quit drinking
coffee und been using Postum for quite
a little time. lie has improved greatly ; sleeps well nights, and says he has
given up coffee entirely."
This lady lives ut Great Bend, Kan
���as.    Name   can   be  furnished by tbe
Postum   Cereal  Co., Ltd.,   at  Battle
Creek, Mlcb.
NOW CNI1EK ARREST���
On Tuesday night a roll of Markets was stolen from Reynold's stabl
on Hall street and sold at Silver Kinp
Mike's store. The police have unriY.
arrest Charles McDowell and James
Gillies, charged with the theft.
NATI'RE STUDY���
A new subject has been added to the

the shape of nature study, by which
is meant a scrutiny of plant life, animals and their habits, minerals, etc.
In this connection it may be stated
that a full equipment of inctruments
for this purpose was donated by W. F.
Teetzel ife Co.

RAILROAD CINCHED 'EM-
The Georgia Minstrels, who were to
have played here on Tuesday next
were compelled to cancel the engagement because the Spokane Falls &
Northern people demanded full fareu
for the members, instead of granting,
the ordinary theatrical rates. As futl
fare meant an outlay of $900. the date
was cancelled. The Nelson Minstrels
will now proceed with their entertainments.
WITH THE CURLERS-
The next and last series of games in
connection with the curling club will
be a points competition similar to that
won by C. Archibald ut the Bossland
bonspiel. In this competition each
player exhibits his skill in making,
the various shots which go to comprise the science of curling. Two
points are allowed for each successful
shot, making a total possible of 72
points. It is expected that a tropin}*
will be offered for the series.
CHANGING THE VALVE���
A erew of city men are engaged In
changing tbe regulator valve which re-
duens the pressure in the water mains
from the pressure at which tbe water
leaves the reservoir to the point at
which it is delivered throughout the
city. The valve will be located at the
corner of Carbonate and Cedar streets
instead of at Mill and Hendryx. By
this means the mains on Mill street
from Hendryx to the city limits and
on Carbonate from Cedar streets to the
limits will have reservoir pressure.en-
suring a strong supply of water under
all circumstances.

TO CURE THE GRIP IN TWO DAYS
Laxative Bromo-Quinine removes the cause.
IN THE   SUPREME COURT.
Judgment in Wigan   vs. Bedlington���
Two Chamber Matters.
The whole time of the court yesterday was again taken up with the case
of Wigan vs. tbe NelsonBedliugton
railway. The arguments of counsel
were concluded by four p. m. when;
his lordship gave judgment for plaintiff for 8350 witb costB, including the
costs of the injunntion obtained by
him.
Two chambers applications *���ere
also heard yesterday morning. G..
Whealler of Kaslo applied for a winding up order for the Florida Mining
company. R. Hannington opposed the
motion, which was adjourned until
Friday for the cross-examination of
the parties.
In the case of .Iteamish vs. the
Whitewater Mines, Limited, A. M.
Johnson for the defendants applied
for an order dismissing the action for
want of prosecution. Mr. Justice Irving ordered that the action be brought
up for trial before the long vacation,
in default of which the action is dis
missed without further order. The
plaintiff in the case is a miner who is
suing for damages received consequent
on the breaking of the gate of an ore:
chute.
This morning Marino vs. Alexander
will be the first case heard.
NELSON PUBLIC LIBRARY.
Hoard Meeting Adjourned For Lack
of Quorum���Last Year's Attendance.
The annual meeting of the public
library board announced for last night
did not materialize for lack of a quorum. Several of the more enthusiastic workers in the interests of the
institution were present but the number was not deemed sufficient to transact business and the meeting adjourned to Wednesday next when It.wlll resume in the library rooms at 5
o'clock. The weather prevailing last
night was anything but favorable,
but despite this fact it iB unfortunate that the interest manifested was
not more genaral. The library is
accomplishing the purpose for which
it was organized, a fact which is.demonstrated by the manner in which it
is patronized. During the last twelve
months no fewer than 20,303 persons
were recorded as having used the reading room, a monthly average of 1,092,
as compared to U17 per month in the
previous year. The books loaned in
1900 totalled 3,(100, considerably over
the previous year's loans. These figures indicate that the public library is
a decidedly valuable enterprise and
its extinction through lack of interest would be a step in the wrong direction.
And ad. In Tbe  Miner want column
always brings results.
