The arrangements for bringing out
The Miner as a daily have been completed and on Tuesday the first issne
will be ready for our subscribers at
breakfast time, so that coffee and war
news may be taken together. A full
Associated Press service will be received; all the local news will be reported and matters of general interest
will be treated. Arrangements are
being made to secure a special correspondent who will supply us with
news from Ottawa. The ladies will
have a department specially for themselves, and in every particular the
daily will be as newsy, bright and reliable as push and energy, hard work
and money can make it.
To the live advertiser the advantages
of a daily will be particularly apparent. It will give.him the opportunity
of placing his business promptly before
the public and of securing customers
and making prompt sales that can be
secured in no other way. Before the
purchaser has started out for the day
the advertiser in the daily has teacbed
him and told him where he can get
the very thing he wants.
The reader interested in news of the
Spanish-American war or of the world
in general will find it ull in The Miner,
as fully given and twelve hours sooner
than any other paper can give it.
Starting out as we . do with good
lists of subscribers and advertisers we
expect to have a rapid increase of both

A MOUNTAIN TRAGEDY.
The Skeleton or aa Vakaowa Maa  Foanil
on Kevelxtoke Mountain.
Last week a prospector named Ed.
White informed the police at lit-velstoke
that he had found on the mouutain back
of the town aud nbout a mile from the
Revelstoke hotel, the skeleton of a man
and a dog. A party consisting of Coroner McLeaD, Constable McRae and
about a dozen citizens was atouce organized and went out to look up theskeleton.
When found the skull was missing and
the weight of the snows bad crushed aud
disconnected the frame until it lay flat
and broken on the ground. Examina
tiou proved that it was dressed in a
coat ouce black and near by were fou-.d
part of a hat, boots and a big open knife,
The skeleton is supposed to be tbat of ;������
Chinaman who disappeared from the
town about two years ago, but^the affair
is wrapped in mystery which in all probability will never be unravelled.

Privateers muy be Seat wilt ta Prey en
I'oHMcrce.
Whether the present war be of long or
abort duration, the commeice of tbe
United States that will be exposed to
privateering will greatly exceed that of
Spain. In 1859 the Stars and. Stripe*
flew over 66 per cent, of the value of
merchandise the United States sent or
brought over the sea, while in 1897 tbeir
versels carried but 11 per cent. Thi*
great decline was due to the civil war
which dealt a blow to shipping from
whioh it has never recovered. Out of
the .��276,000,000 of imports and exports
conveyed across the Atlantic, the American flag covered little over ��30,000,000.
In 1897 Spain's total sea borne trade was
in round figures ��49,000,000 of which
sbe carried about ��21,000,009 in her own
ships, so that it will be Been that the
United States bas about 50 per cent more
commerce than Spain. Both nations are
free to employ privateers and both bave
a fair supply of swift cruisers.
If Spain resorts to privateering, no vessel or cargo belongiug to oitizeus ot the
United Slates will be safe in any sen
Henry ClewB of New York "states the
rules of privateering in this brief manner:*-
" The capture may be by sea or on tho
land by force of the enemy. Any vessel
that has a license from Spain can do this,
although many of the crew belong to a
neutral nation. They will have the right
of search so far as to stop any vessel and
compel ber to show ber papers to' see if
she belongs to the United States or ber
citizens. If the vessel is found to belong
to a neutral nation, then only tbe good<-
tbat are contraband of war can he seized.
"When the-seizure iB made the irop-
erty must be taken to ap'ize court established by Spui", Bind adjudicated upon by
Spanish citizens, and sold, and the pro
ceeda distributed among the captors. A
portion of the proceeds will go to the
Spanish government. Tbe Spanish prizt*
court may be established in any port of
any nation where there is a Spanish consul, if the nation will consent. If a nation will allow either party tobriug their
prizes into tbeir ports for adjudication,
tbey can do so, recording to tbe law of
nations; ,but if tbey allow one party 'and
"riot Tbe other, they are hot to "be consul
ered neutral."
COKE FOB KOOTENAY SMELTEBS.
The i'row's SeM r��ss Coal Company will
Supply the peni��a-4.
Robert Jaffi ay of Toronto, one of tbs
directors of tbe Crow's Nest Pass Ooal
Company and William Blakemore, g( n
eral manager of tbe company, speut a
couple of days in tbe city this week, on
their return from a visit to Rossland and
Spokane." Tbe company bas a capital
stock of 92,000,000, aod Col. Raker, provincial secretary ot British Columbia is
president. To a Miner reporter Mr.
Blakemore stated that the company is
rapidly getting its mines into shape for
delivering coal andcoke^tcrevery parfof
tbe Kootenay country. Tbey have at
present sixty men at work opening up
two seams of coking coal. The best and
most expensive machinery has been ordered for tbe mines and fifty coking
ovens will be in operation before the
Hue of railway is completed to Nelson.
The coal has been thoroughly tested and
the.coke produced has been fouud to be
superior to that produced in Swansea,
Wales, cr Pennsylvania. It is of the bituminous coking variety and contains 95
per cent fixed carbon gud 4 per cent. ash.
It is the intention of tbe company to
supply the smelters of Kootenay at the
very best price possible, which will be
about half tlie price now paid for the
Welsh and C< nnehvilie coke. It is estimated that one ton of coke is used �� iu
smelting five tons of ore aud the reduc
tion in price made by the Crow's Nest
Pass Coal company will reduce the cost
of smelting ore about $1.50 per toa. The
present consumption of cuke at
the smelters in this section, when
all are running is as follows: Hull Mines,
40 tons daily; Trail smelter; CO tone;
Northport, 40 tons.
The product of the 50 coking ovens to
be installed at an early date will be 200
tons per day aud the comnany expect to,
as soon^ as transportation facilities are
available to supply the' smelters above
named.
Besides supplying tbe Kootenay market Mr. Blakemore is in negotiation to
supply a number of the large smelters
across the line. u
" At the Everett smelter the daily consumption of coke is 60 tous; Tacoma, 40
tons; Great Falls, 150 tons; Helena, 50
tore; Butte and Anaconda, 400 toup.
Owing to the advantages of quality and
geographical,position, aud the cheapness
with which the company will be sble to
manufacture coke he expects to be able
supply most of the coke used at all
the points mentioned.

OKIOIN OF   THE TOWN.
It was in 1892, before the railroad hsd
reaohed tbe, townsite of Northport, that
Mr. Hughes arranged witb the owners of
the townsite to start a paper in anticipation of the building of a town there. Ho
hauled his outfit unto the flat, where the
buildings burned, on Tuesday were located, and iu a liitle shack, which he built
himself, started the Northport boom by
iHsuiug a paper brimful of enthusiasm
overthe prospects of the future smelter
oity. The raiboad came aud : people
came witb it, and within a year a fair
sized town had sprung np. Iu tbe summer of 1863 the town suffered from flre,_.
which burued over a large part of tbe
territory revisited by the flames. The
buildings were replaced with others of
of their kind, cheap wooden strootures
built close together.
��� Although tbe situation of the town ie
excellent for water works, none have been
built. The townsite company reserved
the right to the nse of the streets tor
water service, street cars and ligbU, hot
these improvements have never materialised. .The people have been supplied

tion in the Cape de Verde Islands
which belong to Portugal. That country has now issued the usual proclamation of neutrality by virtue of
Avhich the Spanish ships must leave
the Portuguese port. Apparently
they have sailed and their collision
with the American ships somewhere
off the coast of Cuba will be the first
battle of the war.
Spain has apparently missed her
chance. If she had sailed in at once
she could have found several unprotected points at which she could have
dealt the States a severe blow. But
her old policy appears to have prevailed. Vacillation, unreadiness and
delay were always characteristics of
Spain. To-day she has to deal with a
foe renowned for energy and promptness.   Her delay will cost her dear.
There seems to be a little hesitation
among some of the South American
states as to their position in the coming struggle. Personally they are
Spanish, aind they have no love for the
Anglo-Saxon American, and though
one and all of them have at one time
or another cast oil the yoke of Spain,
yet freedom has lifted its burden from
their necks and encouraged the growth
of those blood ties which may now
lead them to uphold the Spanish side.
Whatever happens, however, the
United States must win in the end.
If for no other reason, because the
main body of their people are Anglo-
Saxon, of the same race as ourselves,
and a race that is not accustomed to
defeat.
Nelsoft lite Best Tow*.
On his return to the coast from a
trip through the Kootenay district, P.
R. Ritchie, manager of the Klondike,
North-west Territorries Exploration
Company, stated to a reporter that
business in Rossland is improving but
he thinks and is still of the- opinion
that Nelson is the best town in the
upper countrv. Ymir the new town
is brisk.
SATURDAY. MAY 7, 1898.
SEWERAGE.
. Mr. Mohun has been sent up by the
government to see what can lie done
about the disposal of the city's sewage.
He has been here some time and no
doubt in his report he has suggested
some way ovit  of the difficulty.   The
_ Jaw distinctly forbids tbe emptying of
-"iewejfS^llrectly'lbtb any .lake or river.
Tt contemplates some system of purification between the end of the sewer
and the  water.   There are many of
these systems and they are all alike in
one respect.   They cost a lot of money
t> bepin with.   Modern science  has
made  them economical in tbe   long
run, but small places such as the up
country towns of British  Columbia
can scarcely be expected to stand the
initial expense.   In some of the towns
of England, the disposal of the sewage
is so handled tbat instead of being a
burden on the ratepayers, it is actually,
a revenue producer.   A great deal of
the refuse is burnt at once and enough
heat is generated to supply sufficient
steam to light the town with electrici
Jty.7=y-Otber-portions^become^^paving-
brick, while yet others are compressed
into a kind of fuel.
There is one point about the towns of
British Columbia in which they differ
from places in older countries where
these systems are necessary. There,
especially in Europe, the towns are
very large, and close together and the
rivers are comparatively small. Here
the towns are very small and scattered
very far,apart and the rivers are enormous. Again no one uses the river
water. The country is so hilly and
there are so many streams, that the
supply is drawn by gravity from the
hills at the back rather than having to
be pumped up from the river below.
It is pretty safe to say that if Nelson
drained directly into the Kootenay
river that nothing unpleasant would
be found at Trail, which is the next
town the water renches, and which is
some thirty-five miles off. At Trail
the mighty Columbia might receive
air the sewage of Trail and Rossland
combined and dispose of it all before
it reaches Northport twenty or thirty
miles further on.
IMPERIAL TROOPS COMING-
THE WAR.
The papers are full of war news, or
ratherwarlike news. The movement
of troops, the assembling of squadrons,
the vaporings of more or less important individuals about what they think
is likely to occiir, or their opinions upon what has afready occurred. With
the exception of an engagement off
Manila there h.isbeen no fighting yet,
and the accounts of that affair are so
involved and so contradictory that it
is impossible as yet to say exactly
what did happen. It appears to be
clear though that the Spaniards got |
the worst of it, but the condition in
which the American ships found themselves after the %Lit is uot manifest.
The real fight will come off in the Atlantic. The main squadron of the
Spanish navy has been apparently assembling at St, Vincent, a coaling sta-1

The construction of the lead stack is being pushed ahead. Tbe new copper

Another Newlter fur Koeteaay.
An amendment to the redistribution bill
ling been presented to the provincial legislature by the government. The amendment provides for another member for
West Kooienay, in addition to those included in the redistribution bill as introduced. Trail Creek division is left as io
the bill, while tbe rest of West Kootenay
is divided into three constituencies to be
kuown as the Revelstoke, Slocan and
Nelson ridings. The new constituency
of Slocan. includes tbe Duncan river
country as far north as Hall creek and
also that portion of the former Nelson
riding north of the Kootenay river and
the west arm of Kootenay lake.

The lleepeM Mine.
The deepest mining shaft in the world
is what is known as the Red Jacket,
Michigan. It is 4,800 feet deep, but 380
feet less than a statute mile. Compared
with it the deep silver mines of the
Comstock lode iu Nevada, or the wonderful mines of Austria, worked for many
centuries past, are but shallow pits. At
the bottom of this shaft the temperatuie
is 87 6 10 df grees Fab. The miners are
supplied with compressed air, which has
a wonderful cooling effect on expansion.
The water leaching through the copper
rook acquires an acid tone. Miners must
protect themselves, as this water on
reaching the skin produces ulcers, which
in time eat to the boue. The shaft elevators ascend and descend at the rate of
about eight miles an hour when carrying
passengers, but when lifting' ore Ihe speed
is increased to 25 and as high as 30 miles
per hour. This great speed ia never used
when hoisting human freight, ns flesh and
blood could scarcely stand the strain of
such rapid transit perpendicularly.

J. Fred Ritchie and John McKane of
Rossland spent a couple of days in the
city  this week.   On   Thursday they
visited the Elk and Monarch  claims
[situated One Inile from   Bonnington
Falls and about nine miles from Nelson, which they have recently bonded
for a large sum.   The sellers were Mike
Kealey and Mike Monaghan.   Samples
of ore from the claims, weie assayed
this week and gave good value in copper
and Messrs Ritchie and McKane are
satisfied that  thry. have a property
that will turn into a good mine.   Development will commence next week.
���a tlie Whitewater Deep.
The per e   n y a d i7ep h <>f tl e mineral of the Slocan ii being rapidly established, says ibe Kootenaian.     The
s rike of six inches of ore, m&e mt'e
9 h of ManJh, fn the tata'nel of the Whitewater Deep, at a depth of 1000 feet from
the apex, has widened to an 18-ihbh body
of clean ore.   A drift has been driven
alongside the ore body during the past
10 days, and it is looking better eaoh day
The ore is the same character as that in
the Whitewater mine and the -management of the Whitewater Deep is satisfied that the object in running the long
tunnel on the property has been attained,
i. e., the development of the main lead of
tbe famous Whitewater mine at great
depth on Whitewater-Deep ground.
