Smith Curtis as Usual Does
His Share of the
Work.
Victoria. March 13 —The house today considered a resolution offered by
Mr. Helmcken asking tbe government to get Sir Wilfrid Lauiier to
take up the oriental immigration question with the colonial premiers in attendance at the coronatiou. The debate on it was adjourned,
Mr. Curtis attacked the practice of
ministers for departments which were
really vacant, holding it to be unconstitutional. He got an order for all
Gazette notices in connection with
this matter.
An order asked by Mr. Curtis was
also granted, for the decision given
by Governmeut Agent John Kirkup
in regard to the assessment and taxation of the ore output of the Le Roi
and other mines of Rossland, aud for
the evidence given before Mr. Kirkup.
Mr. Martin got an order for a return of all correspondence in connection with the escape of one Jessop
from the smallpox quarantine in Vancouver. He attacked the government
or government officials for failing to
prosecute in the case.
UNCLE SAM AND THE CHINESE
Washington, March 13.—The senate committee 00 immigration today
agreed to report the Chinese exclusion
bill, known as the Mitcbell-Kahn
measure. It is substantially the same
as the modified bill submitted by the
Pacific Coast committee, ouly a few
verbal corrections haviug been made.
A point which, occasioned much consideration by the committee was
whether or aot Chinese should be excluded from the Philippines, or
whether tbe whole proposition should
be left to the Philippine commission.
The committee agreed on the princi
pie »f absolute exclusion, taking the
ground that tbe United States wanted
to retain the Philippines, and that the
people of the latter were as much opposed to the Chinese as were the
American.!.
The point about which the committee debated at length was tbe exclusion of Chinese seamen from ships of
American register. This proposition
al o was retained in the bill, but with
a proviso to the effect that in case of
accident, stress ol weather or serious
illness tbe captain of the vessel may
ship a ciew for the voyage 011 which
he may have entered.
.ular lelter to the mines of thu Koote
nays directing the attention ol mine
managers to the regulations adopted
with a view to preventing the spread
of smallpox. It is pointed out therein
that in many instances mining companies have suffered heavy loss
through quarantine which can now
be avoided by having all miners vaccinated. A camp so protected is safe,
and should a case of smallpox occur
it would not cause any setback in the
work. It is urged that the employers
of labor would be merely acting in
their own interests by insisting on all
employees giving projt of recent vaccination, and the provincial board offers to supply gratuitously all the
vaccine required, together with the
requisite certificates.
A STRLllJGLEFOR LIFE
A Snow Slide in Kokanee
Creek Buries Two
Miners.
Nelson, B. C, March 13—Fred
Lowden and Chris Sherbert were
seeping in a cabin up iu the main
Kokanee range, about 1000 feet below
tbe summit, 011 Saturday night last at
9 o'clock, when a snowslide occurred.
It swept down upon the cabin, cut off
tbe roof and piled the snow in the interior and for ten feet above the structure.
Sherbert was awakened by finding
himself packed in snow that lay heavily upon him. With almost superhuman efforts he managed to make his
way to liberty and daylight, after 36
hours of a struggle. He was compelled to scoop the heavy snow out in
front of him and roll it into balls and
put it under his body as he toiled toward the surface.
Alter escaping be made his way laboriously to the Mollie Gibson nine,
where he induced the Italians employed in the mine, under a promise
c f $10, to go to his companion's relief.
They went and reported that they bad
shovelled the snow off Lowden till
they came to his head and then they
saw that he was dead. Then next day
on a promise made by Sh-rbert to pay
$100 to the Italians, the bodv of Lowden was taken out and yesterday was
brought to this city.
Lowden's finger nails were torn off
showing that be too lnd made a desperate effort to save his liie Sher-
berl's hands and feet are badly frozen,
and his feet may have to be amputated. He was clad in a thin shiit only
during the time he was fighting for his
life.

WANT MINERS VACCINATED. A GUN PLAY,
Victoria,   March  13.—The provin- j    Rossland,  March 13.—There  was a
cial board of health has issued  a cir-  gun   play   at  the Cardiff  hotel   last
night in which blood was spilt,
though no shots were fired. The
boarders at the hotel have indulged
lately in borse play by snowballing
each other, and last night two of
them became involved in an altercation as tbe result of the snowballing
pranks. Oscar Crisco drew a gun on
Andrew Kennedy and made a bluff
to sboot. The weapon was wrested
from his grasp and in the scuffle Kennedy thrust his hand through a pane
of glass, cutting himself badly. This
was the only blood spilled in tbe
affair.

' An old and familiar landmark
known as the old ''red light" building
which has been standing since 1888
on what is known as the "Bed Light"
property, was destroyed Wednesday
evening by the provincial authorities,
as the building had been used by a
smallpox patient, and tbe only sure
way of disinfecting it was to bum it
down. The nature of the building
did not permit of its being disinlected
in the usual way.

While the American people,says the
Chicago Post, are but mildly interested in the coronation ot King Edward—a ceremony without -real significance—they acknowledge that a j
certain courtesy is due from one gov-
ernnient to another, and they do
not douht that in this instance the i
three men selected will be in every

great republic they will repres-nt.

COLUMBIA. B. C.
Situation,    Environments    and    General
Resources.
The'City of Columbia is 'situated
near the junction of the North Forks
of the Kettle river with the main Kettle river, and is distant about 300
miles east of Vancouver.
The natural situation of the city for
beauty Is not excelled in Ameriea. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolling pralrle.'traversed bva river of
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, fortfiing a charming combination of pieturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center   ol  Columbia,  and the
Vancouver, Victora A Eastern 'Bail-
way company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of thefoorporation, thus giving
the eity connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacifie railway company has large interests in the city,
having selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railwav centre.
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.
Thro'i'hout the Kettle River valley
there is an extent »f fertile agricultural land, part of which is iriw be-
in? cultivated.]
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small frnit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, aud brick lime and stone
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
through the mountains adjaoent to
the city, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now large
paying mines.
Water is supplied the city by pumping from a beautiful spring: of excep
tional purity, capable of supplying: a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modem and perfect plant
of the kind in America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
city,
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
e an educational centre, a city of
homes, as well as a wholesale distributing point; and when finally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest city in the interior.

London, March 13.—The announcement that King Edward had cancelled
his visit to Ireland was published too
late to elicit opinions thereon in Dublin. There is no doubt, however, that
this action will cause deep disappointment, although the royal decision has
been anticipated by semi-official announcements. There are several reasons for this decision. The first is
that the coronation festivities, which
involve fatiguing obligations ar.d needful rest, would postpone the visit until
t> e autumn, when the weather is bad.
The second is the fear that the present temper of the Irish nationalists
aud the United Irish league agitation
might lead to some offensive demonstrations. Thirdly, it is said that several of the leaders ol Catholic opinion
in Ireland have warned the government that it would be inexpedient for
the king to visit Ireland so soon after
his accession to tbe throne and bis
declaration against Roman Catholic
doctrines in England, Tbe annouce-
ment evokes mingled feelings of regret and approval.
