All members of tho city council wore
present at the regular meeting on
Monday night, excepting Aid. Henderson.
Bills presented: H. R. Jorand, for
drawing up bond -for creek work, $5;.
R. McFarland, bliicksniithing, -S3.50.
The hitter bill was ordered referred to
the chief of the fire brigade, and the
other was referred to the finance committee.
Mnyor McNeish brought up the
question of Uie tax sale bylaw, stating
that he would like to get another solicitor's opinion without getting any
further into difficulty. Ho would not
issue u warrant for the tnx sale without being certain of the step. With
all due respect to City Solicitor Jorand,
who had drawn up the bvlaw, he
would favor having another opinion,
for if there was auy chance to upset
the bylaw it certainly would be taken
by the townsite coinpanv.
Aid. Madden and Worden agreed
with the mayor.
Aid. Smith advised leaving the matter to the city solicitor, who could the
better choose another lawyer for an
Aid. Teeter said if mistakes in the
bylaw had been nude, they would no
doubt be rectified
The mayor replied that if a written
opinion came from an outside, lawyer,
it would come direct to the citv council.
Aid. Teeter moved that the city
solicitor be instructed to obtain a
written opinion from some reputable
.*w3k'it<tr as to the validity of the tax
sale bylaw. Seconded by Aid. Midden.
The mayor favored submitting the
bylaw to E. P. Davis, K.C, of Vancouver, as did also the city solicitor.
The townsite company war, oOOfposeu
of a nest of lawyers aud the council
had to be careful.
More discussion followed and then
the motion carried.

Splendid Suoooi. loll.,wing: theDevelopment of Ottawa.
It is a good thing for the camp that
splendid success is following upon the'
development of the Ottawa, the .mine
hnving reached the stage where it may
be classed as one of the banner propositions of the country. Tho opening
up of the No.4 level has demonstrated
the great worth of the mine and every
dny its greatness is impressing itself
more and more upon the management.
The Ottawa is developing into fully
as big a property as the Arlington.
During the week the long raise from
No. 4 broke through into the No. 8
level, having lieen driven with extraordinary speed. It is leu feet long
and results in a thorough ventilation
of the mine, as well a* opening up
much more stoping ground. An intermediate drift has lieen started from
the raise, and another crew oj men
are pushing ahead the No. 4 level.
This last point has 14 inches of high
grade ore to follow in, and both it and
the intermediate will penetrate the
big ore body caught iu No. 3.
Four men are stoping iu the territory south from the raise and it is from
there shipments are being made.
Sixty or 70 sacks are broken down
daily, enabling shipments, to be kept
up without interruption. Lumber has
been going up to the mine for the new
buildings, which are to be erected
shortly. Manager McPhee took a trip
to Kaslo this woek to interview the
government agent relative to financial
assistance towards tbe wagon road,
which is to be built to the mine so
soon as the snow goes.
Besides all the rich ore lieing shipped out, there are large quantities of
secouJ-class stuff lieing put over the
dump, which will demand the inst illation of reduction works at an early
dato. U.uiler present operations the

Spokane is to have connection with
the C.P.R. at last. A branch from
that city to a point on the Crow's Nest
line has long been eagerly sought by
Spokane merchants.
Announcement that a branch line
would be run north from Spokane to
a point on the Crow's Nost line of the
Canadian Pacific was made last week
by D. C. Corliin, on his return to that
city from New York, where he has
spent some time financing the proposed road. All financial arrangements have lieen completed, and negotiations with the C.P.U. officials at
Montreui have resulted in an agreement lieing made by which the road
north from Spokane will be operated
as a connection of the Canadian line
and under a traffic arrangement with
Mr. Corbin has informed the merchants of Spokane that it is desirable
the city grant terminal rights and
right of way to the new road. If such
concessions are made, work on the
construction will lx> commenced in
short order. The matter is lieing actively discussed in Spokane, the interest beiug excited largely on account
of the fact that the merchants and
shoppers there are now engaged in a
conflict with the Great Northern and
Northern Pacific over freight rates.
Spokane merchants have refrained
from making a settlement of their
rates with these roads largely liecause
they had lieen assured that Corbin's
road would be built this coming summer. The assurances they received
are now materializing iu a tangible
manner. Mr. Corbin is to have a
conference with the civic authorities,
when the matter tif concessions will
lx- discussed. Spokane people generally heartily support the proposition.

Klutore Treatment a Succea*.
H. H. Claudet, manager for the Elmore company at Rossland, states:
"lhe past three months have shown
thnt the Elmore oil process is a success. The average of the low grade
ore from the Le Roi No. 2 is slightly
under S") a ton in gold, silver and copper values. This ore is crushed in the
Chilean mills and sent over a 10 mesh
screen, and then the pulp passes over
WUfli'v tables, where about $2.50 pet-
ton is taken out. The WilUey tailings
are then sent to the oil plant, where
an oil concentrate running nlxiiit -$15
is produced for shipment to the smelter. That is equivalent to an extraction of from 7") to 80 per cent of the
metal iu the rough ore, and means
that the oil process gets from 55 to 60
per cent of the values in the tailings.
Tho circumstances under which we
have been working have not lieen the
best. It is but a 50 ton mill, while a
100 ton plant could lie run with the
same number of men. The loss of oil
in the process is alxmt one gallon for
each ton of crude ore treated. From
the chairman of the lxiard at London
we learn that S2.40 a ton for the first
month's treatment is the cost. We
will tlo better than that with experience and a larger plant, and from estimates we have in hand, together
With the different figure at which we
will be able to obtain oil, we predict
that the cost will lie but $1.25 u ton."

—Bister** af Qeeea Alexandra's "Dear
Uttle AaJ.rn.ral."
Admiral Sir Henry Keppel, the
Father of the British Fleet, who died
In January of this year at hia residence 8, The Albany, Piccadilly,
London, was signally remembered by
Queen Alexandra, who sent a wreath
to "My Dear Littlo Admiral." The
Incident at his funeral struck a
popular chord, and stories of his
boyhood and lifo have since been
printed at great length in the English papers. Some of theso are particularly interesting and Canadians
will be glad to have a reprint    of
His title of Father of tho Fleet
waa officially recognized, for by special Order-in-Council hia name remained at the head of tho Active
-List of the Navy, though ho actually retired in 1879.
Henry Keppel, fifth son of the
fourth Earl of Albemarle, who was
great-grandson of the Dutchman who
came over with the Prince of Orange,
waa born on June 14, 1800. Tho
gallant old sailor used to tell, with
a chuckle, tho talc that at the ago
of three weeks he was given up as
hopeless, and "placed in my father's
footpan to be interred in the garden
nt the back of the house, not being
entitled to a berth in consecrated
ground. In fact," he said, "they all
thought I was dead, but my old
nurse fsneied sho saw a glimmer of
life in mo, and brought mo round,
nnd saved me from being buried like
n kitten."
Another early recollection was that
his nurse frightened him with the
warning, "Boney is coming!" and
when he waa six years old he learnt
ot tha victory at Waterloo.
Ha was sent to a preparatory
school nt Needhain Market. A
sprightly, mischievous boy of infinite spirit, his school days were
not altogether uneventful, and the
gallant old gentleman has left on record ths following exploit: "As the
warm weather approached I succeeded in finding where thc master kept
hla hair powder, and with it mixed
soma finely-powdered sugar.   On com-

tng into school the flies soon founu
him, and as he got warm hi! head
became black instead of wh,ito. This
tittle game exceeded my expectations, as, irritated beyond endurance,
he dismissed the school."
When he was 11 years old his
father decidod that it was time to fix
on his career. Lord Albemarle talked
the matter over with him and his
brother Tom. Both lads wanted to
Join the Navy, but thu earl thought
it desirable that they should choose
different professions. Neither of thc
boys would give way. Reluting the
incident, Sir Henry adds: "Aa we
disagreed. I hit Tom in the eye,
which he, being thc biggest, returned with interest. When we had bad
enough father decided we should both
be sailors." In this rough-and-
ready-way waa the career of thc future Admiral of thc Fleet settled,
though, as a matter of fact, his
brother went into the Church.
In 1822, ho was entered at the
Royal Naval -school at Uosport.
Among the friends he made at this
time wero Hallowell, Suckling, ond
Francis Blackwood, all more or less
connected with Nelson, lie was appointed to the Tweed, commanded by
Captain F. Hunn, half brother of
Canning, in 1824, and began life at
While thc Tweed was at Dnhia
Keppel, who was of particularly
diminutivo appearance, was taken
ashore by his commander and ordered later to convey a despatch to the
Tweed in tho bay. Lord Cochrane
waa then blockading tho port, on
behalf of tho infant Empire, then a
colony of Portugal. It was the Portuguese officer of thc guard who refused to let the small oflicor of tho
King pass, Keppel saw that tho muskets in tho guardhouse looked too
well polished for use. Ilu told his
coxswain to be ready for n rush, and
before a rifle could be taken from
the racks, this youngster of 15 bad
carried all before him liko a miniature hurricane, followed by bis boat's
crew, leaving the sentry on his back.
They were all In tho boat in nn instant, a few musket balls from the
astonished guard falling into tho
water as they rowod away.
Keppel generally attracted the attention of his commander. 'We shall
see you an admiral yet, young Keppel," said he. "Very likely, sir,"
replied tho cheeky youth, "whin I
haven't noso enough left lo tell between the smell of powder und ship's
The Tweed returned (o Spithead in
February, 1825, and Joined tho (,'hun-
nel Sr|Ua-dron, and a littlo more than
two years later the ship   was   paid
out of commissi n. In 1827 Midshipman Keppel ugain joijicd tho
Tweed on this vessel boing commissioned by Captain Lord John
Churchill. Sho was inspected by the
last of tho line of Lord High Admirals, tho Duke ol Clarence, afterwards William IV., but Sir Henry
added in his reminiscences, with that
•quaint humor that distinguished
him, "ho did not notico me, although
I had rod hair liko his flag lieutenant, Hon. J. F. Ross."
While in tho Tweed Keppel waa
promoted to be sub-lieutenant, and
a year later, in 1829, became lieutenant, being then just 20 years of
age. On his return ashore ho joined
tho staff of the "kind" Duke of Sussex, and then in 1829 he embarked
in the Galatea, another ship of the
Channel Squadron, commanded by
Capt. Charles Napier, C.B., and
aailcd to the West Indies in search
of glory and prize money. It was
during this voyago that tho young
lieutenant fought his first and only
duel. His opponent, a fellow officer,
declared for apology or blood, but
it was not blood. Honor was held
to have been satisfied aftur two exchanges of fruitless shots, and then
came the preliminaries to reconciliation. Hutton, tho other principal,
held that Keppel should advance to
him; this he refused to do, and the
affair was settled by the two meeting midway and making up tho quarrel. Within a month of thia quarrel
ho was nearly killed by a rogue
In 1829 Keppel was at the Cape,
distinguishing himself chiefly aa a
devil-may-care sportsman. The steep
and almost precipitous cliff down
which he drove tandem is still known
as "Keppel's Folly." But the old
tor, who loved a yarn and a talk of
early days, used to sny of these escapades, "I've been at the bottom
of most ditches in most parts of
the world."
In 1833 he was promoted to Commander and given tho command of
the brig Childers a year later, one of
tho signatories to his commission
being Sir Thomas Hardy, Nolson's
faithful Hardy. Ho waa so small of
stature that his friends persuaded
him not to apply in person for tho
ship. Thereafter he saw a good deal
of the slave trade, and Chinese and
Malay pirates infested the Eastern
seas, and perpetually imperilled our
merchant ships. His first job was to
blockado 60 miles of coast with
boats, and this he did so well that
the Rajah offered him his daughter
in marriage.
He was home for the Coronation
of Queen Victoria, at which he was
present. In his next ship, the Dido,
he renewed his acquaintance with
the Eastern seas.
Keppel commanded the St. Jean
d'Acre, a fine ship, in the Baltic during the war with Russia, and subsequently took out troops to the
Crimea, where he was appointed
commander of the Naval Brigade end
greatly distinguished himself, being
gazetted three times for bravery.
Next ho hoisted his broad pennant
in the Raleigh for tho East Indies,
but had the misfortuno to ground her
off Macao and to stand a court-
martial which might have been serious if his brilliant exploit at Fat-
shun Creek had not covered him with
fresh honors.
'I'he lato admiral often said he did
not think much of the officer who had
not lost a ship, end sometimes bewailed his own hard fate in being
thus made tho means of improving
our charts, lt had been his luck, he
said, during his service to discover
17 rocks, unknown till he ran his
ship on  them.
Probably the finest piece of boat
work ever done was Keppel's attack
with seven boats on 35 large Chinese
junks in FaUhan Creek n 1857,
when his galley was sunk beneath
him, and fivo out of six of tho men
in it wero killed or wounded. At
tho first attack tho Chinese fire was
so hot that the boats were obliged
to fall back. Then Keppel called
out, "Let's try onco more with the
row-boats, boys," and thc men gavo
such a cheer, and mude such an onslaught, that the Chinamen gave
wuy, and a number of tho junks wero
captured und several sunk.
Talking of these days he used to
say that, like a cat, he must have
had at least nine lives, considering
tho chances of death which he had
escaped. Tho K.C.B. was deservedly
bestowed upon him for his courageous and clover leadership in the last-
mentioned  action.
He was sent to the Cape ln 1860
ns Naval Commander-in-Ciiief, and
from that position he was transferred
to tho Brazilian station. In 1867 he
hoisted his flag on thc Rodney as
vice-admiral commander-in-chief on
tho China and Japan station. Returning to England he attained tho
rank of full admiral, and Oxford conferred upon him the honorary degreo
of D.C.L.— rather to his amusement.
The other steps of honor which ho
trod mny bo summarised. Sir Harry
waa created O.C.I), in 1871, and became Admiral of tho Elect six years
lc.tor. llo retired in 1879, but that
only begun for him another equally
busy lifo of travel. To the last ho
was never so happy ns when he was
traveling across tho ocean, bound for
a fur-ofl land, and no voyager was

With the Hoyal family Sir Harry

llis Majesty and tho Queen was known
as "Daddy." 'Un.- Queen not long

Katharine Louisa, daughter of General Sir John Oroibio, who wns a

for war was the veneration of Ha*

ancient capitals of Japan, le-ar Yo-

present in spirit in tho grout Shinto
temple on Kudnn hill, Tokio. Hero
twice a year tlio troops stationed
at Tokio come to pav thoir respects
to comrades who havo fallen in battle. Company by company they
march up and solemnly present nrmi
before tho temple, honoring thoir
dead. Beforo departing for the front
also the troops went to salwto tha
god, leaving votive offerings to in-
syro their safo return. The soldiers
hang straw sandals up about the
temple. This, thoy think, will mako

at Port McIIenry, who was the only
man out of 277 to survive the massacre
of the Sioux Indians under General

general order issued by the department
of the east. Sergeant Martin has served
for thirty years, since he was twenty
years old. He will receive thuso-quarters of his regular pay.
On June 25,1870, General Custer sent
Sergeant Martin, then a trumpeter,
back from the camp on the Little Big
Horn river, Montana, to Captain Ben-
teen for re-enforcements. Martin said
tie had scarcely mounted a hill about a
mile from thc camp when he saw Sitting Bull approaching.
"I knew that It was too late for th*
re-enforcements, but I continued on my
mission. I looked buck for a minute,

Canadian Kidney Remedy.
Port Hopo, Ont., Mar. 14—(Special)
—It has long been admitted that
what will cure Diabetes will curo any
form of Kidnoy Disease, and Dodd's
Kidm-y Pills have cured tho longstanding Diabetes of Charles liikbrist
of this place.
Mr. Gilchrist is easily one of ?ho
best known men In Port Hope, l-'or
fifteen years ho was Chief of Police
and for twenty-two years Fishery
Overseer of tho Dominion Uovern-
i.iont. When asked regarding his
cure, ho had no hesitation in spying
it was caused by Dodd's Kidney l'ills
and nothing else.
"I had Diabetes and Kidnoy Disorder for ten years,': he said.. ''My
urine was like brickdust and I had a
terrible backache. I tried doctors,
tried everything, but could get no
holp till I was advised to try Dodd's
Kidney Pills. 1 commenced taking
them, soon began to get butter and
am quite well now.
"If I had not used Dodd's Kidney
Fills I am sure I would have been in
my grave.:'
Sound Kidneys take all impurities
out of the blood. Dodd's Kidney
Pills make sound Kidneys. Thoy are
the greatest tonic of the age.

Bibles ure laid by detectives to bo
nuire rarely stolen than any other objects. This is not becnuse Bibles nro
worthless to a thief, but because few
criminals are suflit-Iently depraved to
steal the good book. A detective said
recently thnt in an Important caso
which he had followed up some years
ago a thief bad entered the house,
stolen some valuable Jewels and left
untouched a Blblo bound in white
chicken skin and studded with penns.
The detective caught the thief, and the
man who hnd been robbed, a dealer In
curios, visited his despoller In Jail, took
an interest ln him because he bad not
taken the Bible and eventually reformed him and got him a good Job.
"I knew," the thief snid, "that if I
took that Bible it would do me barm
and if I didn't lake it lt might do me
good. I let it alone, and now, thank
heaven, I'm an honest and a righteous
Tho detective added that ln another
case where a thief had stolen a Bible
the book had been returned. "Another
thing few thieves will take," he added,
"is a child's laving! bank."

Safety For Your Children
When a mother finds it necessary to
give her little one medicine sho cannot bo too careful as to tbe remedy
employed. The so-called "soothing"
medicines always contain poisonous
opiates, and these should never be
given to a child. Strong drug* and
harsh purgatives should also to
avoided. An ideal medicine for young
children is Baby's Own Tablets, which
cure all the minor ills of childhood,
and the mother has tiie guarantee of
one of the foremost analysts of Canada that this medicine contains no
opiate. Milton L. Herscy, M. A. He.,
demonstrator in Chemistry, McGill

FRTPAY, MARCH -25th. 1004.
Ex-Lieut.-Governor Mclnnes died
in Vancouver last' week, of heart failure. His public career was of * spectacular character and of- lessening
importance. W, B. B. Mclnnes, M.
L.A. for Alberni, is one of the sons.
Quite a bunch of political rumors
nre afloat, to >vit: the legislature is to
meet early in the. summer to accept
Dunamuir's scheme for unloading the

McDonald, Nelson, is to lie made provincial secretary, and is to contest the
vacant seat in Lillooet; Harry \Vright
is to be made minister -of mines. Rumors ate easy to start, but hard to
Eastern bye-elections, federal and
provincial, b')y$ ot late, been anything
but chedring to the various liberal
governments. In Prince Edward Island last week the Conservatives captured Seoond Kings constituency by
90 of a majority. In all the provinces
there have been pronounced indications that the people are tiring of
Liberal rule and are disposed to give
the Conservatives a show.
i" ,i i,'*1    .
On the first of April, 1900, The
Drill was launched upon the troublesome sea of journalism, and, though
storms of adversity and opposition
have been encountered.,! t is still bravely sailing along, endeavoring to avoid
the rocks of disaster and bring a full
cargo of prosperity and better times
to its home port of Slocan. During
the four years of its existence, The
Dbill has never missed an issue, and
ha? conscientiously striven to chronicle tbe news and happenings of the
town' aud camp in a truthful aud unbiased manner. That the work is appreciated and recoguized may be
judged from the flattering tribute paid
its news columns each week by the
outside press,which extensively clip -
though co always with credit—and
widely circulate the various items of
interest pertaining to this locality.
•The columns of The Drill have always been clean and void of malice,
the policy of the paper lieing to aim
for the higher ideals of journalism and
not pander to depraved tastes. It
was not calculated when started that
the paper would be a world-disturber,
but It was the purpose to give Slocan
a weekly journal that would be a
credit; to the town, and no one can
assAt that that purpose has failed of
fulfilment. At the outset it was stated
the. papsr would rise or fall with the
destinies of the place, and that it has
managed to keep afloat so long has
been tlie marvel of the' outside fraternity. Dark days have fallen upon
the camp and whether The Drill will
survive the tempests of auother year it
is hard to say, but so long as there is
a reasonable chanc;* to live the paper
will continue to publish. It is asking
no favors, but it does trust to the public spirit of the citizens to seo to it
that one of the town's chief assets is
not allowed to waste away. Slocan
has more than her share of narrow-
niindcd souls, and these will continue
to carp and rail against the paper, de-
nyifcg it'support and refusing to see
the advantages "derived, but ye editor
is not registering any complaint.
Should suspension follow, he can
gather up his b -longings nnd quit
•without saying aye, yes or no to anyone. He did not come to Slocan on
a shoestring and will not leave it on
ono To those faithful souls who have
stood by the paper, thanks are due
andjf-reely tendered. True value has
always been given for patronage received, and thp printer's money has
been distributed with no unstinted
band among those who supported him,
and -to those only. That is justice.
As a business proposition for the town
and camp the paper should be given
hearty support, and those that are
public spirifj I will  see that it gets it.
