TO POSTPONE DEATH
Chicago Professors Attack
the Problem of Prolonging Life.
The remarkable experiments of Dr.
Jacques Loeb and Prof. A. T. Matthews at tbe Chicago University have
lead to the hope that ■ means may be
found, without regard to specific disease!, for postponing bodily death.
They announce not only tbat nerve
force is an electric phenomenon, but
tbat, to a certain extent, it is amenable to control through the influence
of chemicals introduced into the human system. The nerve* consist of a
gelatinous, or colloidal, substance
whose atoms bear electric charges.
When positively electrified, the nerve
colloids are held iu a state of solution
aud remain quiescent. But it a nega
tlve current traverses tbe nerves, their
substance instantly "jellies," and a
wave of sensation passes through
them. Tbe muscular contractions follow the same law. Now, some chemical elements when introduced into
the system produce a stimulation of
the nerves by ebanging their atoms
with negative electricity, while other
elements set in just the opposite manner and, by producing an opposite
current, dissolve the colloids and stagnate the nerves. Tbis explains the
action ofjanaesthetics, which produce a
positive cbsnge and thus deaden the
nerve. The experimenters think tbey
have approached closer than. heretofore to an explanation of the changes
that end in death,and, beginning with
simple forms of vitality, they have attacked tbe problem of prolonging life.
In the case ot the eggs of the sea
urchin they have indefinitely postponed death through the stimulant
effect of a solution ot potassium cya
aide.
days after tbe latest report cf John
Hays Hammond. The Scotch stockholders got together and a delegation
was sent to the main office in London,
compelling the directors to grant Mac-
laren permission to investigate the
property on their own accouut.
In tbe work that he has already
done be sees promise of big accomplishments in the way of ore extraction, and that without the performance of any extensive amount of development work. He icsists tbat
Hammond does not know any mere
about the mine tnan a pig does about
side pockets. His expression on the
mine is that it has a roseate future,
and should produce a ''tew" more
millions before it dies a natural deatb.
There is, iu bis estimation, good ore,
high-grade, low-grade and various
other kinds of pay ore in every level
of the property.

NAVIGATES THE AIR.
Albert aiantos-Dutnont, builder and
navigator of airships, arrived in New
York a couple of days ago on the
steamer Deutschland from Paris. He
came to the United States to discuss
plans for an exhibition of aerial navigation with tbe managers of the St.
Loais exposition, and will be ia tbe
country for tbree weeks. He w'll do
no flying during this trip.
"I hope to see New York tbe permanent air port of the world before I
pass away," be said in speaking of the
future ot tbe airship. "I have no
doubt but that in my time, that is, if
I get the proper encouragement and
help, aerial navigation will be aa accomplished fact. I have no doubt but
that I will live to see passengers transported by airships across the Atlantic
from New York to Paris. I have not
patented my airship in this country,
and I don't intend to. I want other
men to tske my ideas and improve on
them if they can." ■

A great deal of criticism bas been
indulged in by our citizens the past lew
days regarding the manner in which
the recent Hot Air celebration was conducted. The critics assert, and their
assertion seems well grounded, that
the affair was rushed through with
undue haste. The excursionists arrived in town late Friday night. Saturday morning tbey were hustled
aboard the special ior Republic, at
which place they were merely given a
breathing spell ol a few hours' duration, and then sent back to Grand
Forks, where they had to make a
rush from the train in order not to delay tbe banquet at the Yale, and the
majority of them departed for their
homes by special train Sunday'morning, not one whit wiser regarding the
wonderful richness of the undeveloped
wealth of the Boundary country.
Among tbe excursionists were men,
both from Spokane and the cast, tbat
represented millions of capital. Tbey
should have been .shown the greatness of the Granby smelting plant.
An excursion should have been run to
Pboenix, where a day spent in showing tbe visitors the big mines might
have proven profitable, and tbe same
amount of time should' has been allotted them for a thorough inspction
of I lie mining properties around Republic. The hurry with which tbe
affair was rushed have given the visitors tbe impression that our resources
would not bear too close a scrutiny,
Which would be entirely wrong. Too
much light cannot be thrown on the
resources and undeveloped wealth of
tbe Boundary country.
The counts ou which the latest injunction against the V., V. & E. is
based are as follows : Count First,
That work on the line was uot commenced until after the expiration of
the charter time limit. Second, Tbat
the powers of the company have been
delegated to an American corporation,
the Great Northern Railway company.
Third, That the presebt work is not
for the purpose of building the Coast-
Kootenay railway, but from Cascade
to Carson, as a part oi tbe line designed to run irom Marcus to Republic, a continuation of the Nelson &
FortSheppard railway, and instead of
bringing the Republic camp ores to
the Granby smelter at Grand Forks,
a smelter in Canada, it is intended to
carry them through Canadian territory
to the smelters ef Northport and other
United States points, thereby frustrating the express intentious of tbe legislature in granting the V., V. & E.
charter. These points will come up
for argument in the Supreme court
May 6th. In the meantime the realty
holders of Grand Forks and Columbia
can sweat under the realization that
their holdings are not worth more than
half what they were a week ago.

The City of Columbia Is (situated

The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
io the center of Columbia, and the
Vancouver, Victor. A Eastern IRail-
way company, hat located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of .the: corporation, thus giving
the city connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacific railway oom-
panvhas large interests in the city,
having selected the site on aooount of
the superior natural advantages at a
railway oentre,
The climate, taken all the year
around,'is the best in Canadn—part of
the summer Is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley
there is an extent «f fertile agricultural land, part of which it now being cultivated.
Applet, plums, peart, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small frnit and
vegetable farmt, will sustain a large
papulation.
Building material it plentiful in the
dittriot. Lumber can be procured at
fajr prices, and brick lime and ttone
of. good quality can always be obtained when required.
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this country, and will
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
throngh the mountains adjacent to
the oity, and what were mere prospects a short time sinoe are now large
paying mines.

Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
§rowth and prosperity, Columbia will
e an educational centre, a city of

and wedded to her titter lister, will lie
the belt and largest city in the interior.
