 ... M  TOL.H.    NO. 43.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, APRIL 16, 1898.  PRICE FIYE CENTS.  I  Lee Says Half' the Reconcentrados  Starved to Death.       .   ,  Washington, April 11��������� The consular  correspondence with regard to the situation in Cuba which waa transm;tted  to-day, was prepared in response to  resolutions of enquiry, adopted by  both .the Senate and House. The correspondence includes commurications  up to April 1. It covers the movements  of General Lee at Havana ; Consul Mc-  Garr at Oienfugoes, Consul Brice' at  Matanzas, Consul Hyatt at Sagua de  Cuba and Barker at Sagua La Grande-  The . communications made about  ,60,000 words.  They deal largely with distress and  suffering which exists in all the districts, but General Lee repor's quite  fully upon the decrees of the government with regard to autonomy and  other political phases of the situation.  In preparing the correspondence 'for  transmission to Congress, considerable  portions of the important communications and especially those .marked  "confidential" are omitted.  now. The rainy season will' soon be  at hand and Spain's troops'would like  an armistice until it is oyer.  "We shall throw away no advantage.  On the other hand I am   anxious  that  hostilities should cease, but'it must be  ������nce for all.   If Spain agrees   to   evacuate Cuba, taking her flag with   her;  I am willing to ligrce to   an  armistice  to last  until  October   1,   when   loyal  Cubans shall come into their own.  , "Please tell President McKinley this  for me ; tell him, too, that I   am  writing this at the direction of the   Cuban  provisional government,   with   which  they may treat directly,   should   they  so desire."

November 27, General Lee sent to  the department, the communications  of two gentlemen, whose names, he  says, are suppressed for obvious reasons, but whom he knows' personally  as standing high in the community j  concerning the condition in los lbsos  (the ditches) in Havana. The communication says among other things'-  "Four hundred and sixty women and  children thrown on the ground, heaped  pell mell as animals, some in a dying  condition, others sick, others dead,  without the slightest cleanliness or  the least help, not ablo%tq .give, water  to the thirsty, .without^5 religious or  social help, each one dying wherever  chance laid him."  The communication goes on to state  that the deaths among the' reconcentrados averaged 40 to 50 daily, and that  on an average there were but 10 days  of life for each person. It says that  these unhappy creatures received food  .- only after having been eight days in  the ditches, during which time they  were obliged to subsist upon the bad  food which the dying had refused.  Some horrible instances of distress  witnessed are given.  "Among thc many we saw,'' says the  communication, "there was seen' one  impossible to forget. There is still  alive thc only witness, a young girl of  IS, whom we found seemingly, lifeless  on the ground. "On her right side was  tho bod} of the young "mother, cold  and rigid, but whose young, child was  still alive clinging to her breast.On her  left side was the corpse of.a dead .woman, holding her kon in a dead embrace. A little further on a dying  woman, holding in her arms her  dauShter of 14, crazed with pain, who,  after \2 or 14 days, died in spite of the  care she received."  Further along the communication  .���������says that if any young girl came in  -who'w.as nice looking, she was infallibly, condemned to', the most abomin-  ;.-al)jle of traffic. The communication  ���������says that 1,700 persons had entered the  fosos since August 1, and- of these but  .233 were then living. It places the  .. numher of deaths among the recoh-  .cetrados at 77 per cent.       \ - ������������������' ������������������'���������  t.      ���������      HALF STARVES TO DEATH.  ^December 14, General Lee sent an-  <otner communication, saying that the  total number of recenccntrados in  Havana province will reach 150,000,  and that the death rate from, starvation alone will be over 50 per cent.  For the relief of these people he says  $12,000 in silver has been set aside, "so  that if every dollar of the appropriation  should reach theni the. redistribution  will amount to about 18 cents a person." :   ...������������������'��������� '  December 28, General Lee.says that  he has been informed that the author-  ites are engaged in forming in auto-  nomistic cabinet,:.arranging for the  members to takethe "required oath on  January 1 and "also for an election 30  days thereafter."  ing for spring to come so that they can  rnsh down to Dawson," said F. T. Walker to a Miner reporter last evening.  Mr. Walker returned yesterday from a  business trip.of a couple of months  along the Alaskan coast. "The man  who starts in now will reach Dawson  just as quickly as if he had started last  November, but there arc alrendy four  or five times too many peopla in the  Klondyke, and when - the 40,000 or  50,000 now on the way'get there, the  crush will be enormous. Dawson is  very lively, though, and stampedes are  of daily occurrence. A man can't he  seen working anywhere within 50  miles of there, but'what there .will be  a wild rush to locate everything in the  vicinity.  ."From all I can learn there are some  immensely rich'creeks aloag'iho Klondyke, and I suppose that between $4,-  000,000'to ������6,000,000 will be taken out  this year, but the valuable claims comprise only a short area. There are  perhaps 75 rich properties around  Dawson so far developed, and of these  from 20 to 25 are immensely valuable.  There are bet een 6,000 and 10,000  locations around Dawson and ma..y of  them are", 'yielding. - perhaps $10  a day per man, but owning to the  heavy "cost of living and wood, that  isn't as good as $1 per day would be  around here. Labor coits from $1 lo  ������1.50 an hour, and the day- is from six  to eight li.iuis i n_r, while wood is  worth $ 10 a cord in Dawson and $60,  at the mines. As the ground is frozen  nil the year round, it. will be imp<'s.-i-  ble to operate by hydrnuliuing.  "The best way to teach Dawson, in  mv opinion," is over the Whito or  Ohileoot puss, or else via St. Michael's  and the Yukon. The Senate did wisely  in cancelling the Lake Teslin railway  charter, for it., would'.never afford a  satisfactory route, i. 7 ._  -"Business of a! 1 kinds is overdone  in the coast towns, and everywhere  you see the sigh,'For Rent or Sale.'

Thc troubles which threatened to  wreck the Noble Five mine, at Cody,  are practically at an end and the property is no longer involved in litigation.  The order of the court which placed  the property in the hands of a liquidator has been voided and the company  has passed into the control of men  with means sufficient to place it in  good condition once more.  "I have advices direct from Victoria," said a gentleman yesterday  who is in close touch with thc Noble  Five business, "to tho effect that the  winding-up order of tho court which  threw the Noble Five into liquidation  was set aside by the supreme court of  British Columbia last Thursday. This  was done upon a showing made by a  .sharehojder Tho affairs of the company are thereby placed again entirely  in'its own hands.  . "Thc Noble Five has money on hand  sufficient to place tho mine on a paying  basis. Pursuant to power given them  'by the shareholders at a meeting held  at Cody in_ November last, the directors borrowed $50,000, with which  the indebtedness has been paid, and a  further sum of 5100,000, or so much  thereof as may be needed, will be obtained to be used in the development  of the property. This will be advanced  from time to time in such sums as  may be needed, will be obtained to be  used in the development of the property. ,d .  "The old board of directors has retired . and the following have been  elected: President, James Dunsmuir,  of "Victoria; vice-president, J. D. Porter, of Spokane; secretary,F.J. Holman  of Spokane; assistant secretary, G. B.  McDonald, of Cody; othor directors,  C. E. Pooley, of Victoria, J. G. McGuigan, of Spokai.e and B. J. Perry, of  Victoria.  a small affluent on the Mokulumne  river. This nugget was taken east,  where its exhibition confi.ned the  stories of California wealth, and added  materially to the public excitement  there.  In 1851 the "Oliver Martin   c .unk,"  which was auriferous ore mixed with  white quartz, was picked op near Camp  Corona, in Tuolumne county, in a hole  which   Martin   had   dug   to   bury   a  drowned comrade.   It yielded  $22,2/0,  r.nd became the basis of  a   great   fortune.   In 1866, D<tniel Hill, a ' pauper,  found   a   $14,000   nugget   in   Plumas  county, and coming to San  Francisco,  spent the proceeds quickly, $5,000   being squandered in   one   week's   whirl.  With hia money all gone, he  went   to  Dutch Flats, Nevada county, and while  washing his hands  in   a  stream   saw  lying on the bottom a nugget   of  gold  and white quartz, similar in   size and  shape to a baby.s head     This  brought  $12,300, and sent Daniel Hill through a  career of deb tuchery to the poorhouse.  The finds in the later years up to the  Blue Jay discovery, have not been of a  notable sort.    In the fall of 1889,   two  tramps who had been put off a Southern Pacific freight train, started to walk  to Bakersfield, and   found   a   battersd  nugget weighing  216   ounces   on   the  way.   In 1896 a   chunk   worth   ������1,400  was picked up in   San   Diego   county,  and there have been two or three   discoveries ow the   Mojavc   desert.

"  "Work has already been resumed on  the mine. In order to facilitate  operations a compressor plant will  be at once installed. It is planned  to develop the mine on a common-  sense plan and no shipments are  contemplated for at least a year.  During that time, a large force will  be employed placing the mine in  condition so that when shipping  begins profits may accrue because  the;supply 'of ore wilh be 'Sufficient.  The 'company's concentrator may be  started on custom work if the:>_ be a  demand for it, but not on Noble Five  ore for at least-12 months. Shipping  ore-taken out during development will  be held and concentrating ore will be  stored in the stopes and chutes, which  it is estimated will hold 30,000 tons.  The fact that money can be obtained  to pull a silver mine out of a bad hole,  in spite of the low market for the  metal, is an encouraging item for the  owners of Slocan mines. Mining men  generally commend the action of the  Noble Five people in determining to  make a mine of the property before  undertaking.to make profits. The saving of the expense of long and tedious  litigation is another matter of congratulation. The news that troubles are at  an end will be especially gratifying to  Spokane holders of Noble Five stock,  who are many."   .  One of the perils of gold seeking in  tho Klondyke but little mentioned is  tho dreadful snow slide. A telegram  from Skagivay of the 3rd inst. says  that that day an avalanche of snow  and ice came down on Chilcoot pass  that buried from 100 to 200 persons.'  The latest is that over 70 bodies have  been recovered, a partial list of which  we give elsewhere, and about 150 more  are missing. In fact the extent of the  fatalities may never be known, as  those sent to' eternity are from all  parts of the world, and business is in  such a state up there that but little is  cared for the loss of strangers. In any  event a great many bodies will not be  found until out in the summer when  the snow and ice are melted. No  record is kept ot the toiling masses of  humanity in that region on the hunt  for gold, so there is but little to guide  an enquirer in making an estimate of  death's destruction. It appears that  just before the large slide two or three  smaller masses camcdoii'i.; but the  country is not well enough known to  have a history in that respect. It is  reported that Mr. Bissell, late manager  of the Paystreak, who left here some  six or eight weeks ago to seek his fortune in that inhospitable region,.. is  among the dead.  From appearances the city improvements on the creek ought to stand a  heavy tussle with the elements, though  a heavy tu.������sle is the hiovitable. The  intuition is to flume the creek from  the back of Bj ens' store���������and ev\ ut-  ually further up���������to the powerhouse  with a raceway 7x12, whioh, having a  fall of nearly 10 per cent., will give lhe  current a speed of neatly 20 miles an  hour. This will carry nil" an immense  body of water and be a ver.y dangerous  place to fall into, even with a foot or  so of water, and much more so in a ,  freshet. Thc gate at the head is so  constructed as to afford ample protection from boulders and timbers coming  down, which will be reduced to a minimum if the government only do their  duty in clearing the creek to the Cody  bridge. If this flume be planked,  eventually, it will make a nice street  and will reclaim considerable land, or,  at least, lengthen many lots consid er  erably. As the freshets will soon set  in the work will have to be abandoned  shortly till the fall.  There is one thing  the   provincial  Board of Health must be assured of���������  this  will make a  most efficient* main  sewer to drain the city, and  with the  current it  will have will correct the  consequences of drainage in   a very  short run.   All who are up in sanitary  matters know that with a swift current  through soils, as this stream will have  after leaving the flume, water speedily  purifies itself;  and, with the infiujc of  a large body of fresh water  from  up  streams all the time, no dangerous elements can appear in it atany point in  the  entire length of the flume.   This  work properly done  and the city properly drained into it,-with  our supply  of the,purest water   from up the hill  sides, Sandon will remain, as it Is now,  the most healthy place   in the whole  province.  Seattle, where he went 10 visit his family and to attend to business matter.  He says the business outlook of Paget  Sound is better than it has been for  five years, and while the Klondyke excitement has caused a temporary  boom, travel to Alaska via Seattle in  the past six weeks has fallen off three-  fourths. Many out-fitting concerns  are overstocked and anxious for fear  they will not be able to dispose of their  goods. While he did not hear so much  Baid about the Kootenay country as  there was a year and a half ago, there  were many who were enthusiastic at  the results thus far obtained, and expressed the intention of coming w;  here after the Alaska interest h,i.l  abated. All have on abiding confi  dence in Kootenay.���������Rossland Miner.  IKS BUI  IP II  Bill Matheson  Tells  of His  Experience.  AN AYALAHCHE OF DEATH.  Big Chunks of Gold.

This nugget stands,  or rather stood,���������for it   is   now   being  minted���������for about $42,000, but saying  nothing of thc alleged Chileon  nugget  weighing 400 pounds troy,   the   "Welcome" nugget  of  Ballarat,   weighing  2,217 ounces   10   penny-weights,   was  sold for ������10,000, or nearly $52,000.     It  is even a question whether the  Graves  nugget is the largest even taken   from  the soil of California.   .According   to  Hittell, a nugget was.found at   Carson  Hill' Calveras  county,   in   .November,  1855, which weighed 195 pounds   troy,  and was. worl h $43,000.     Between  the  two there is no great issue   of   values,  but what there   is  appears   to. be   in  favor of the earlier sp< cimen.  '.   The first nugget found in this   state,  the one which Marshall picked up, was  worth but 50 cents, and the next   one  but $5.   A soldier in Stevenson's  regiment found the first large specimen,  a  mass of gold weighing between 20 and  Victoria; April 9. ���������The following is  said to be the correct list of dead, so  far as known, at the sailing of Ning  Chow on the 4th, from the avalanche  near Sheep camp, on the trail from  Dyea, reported y esterday :  Thomas Cullers, Portland; Ore;   Stephen Stephenson; Seattle; Gus.

Mr. Warner, who has  a   two years'  lease of the Argo,. from   operations so  far, is well pleased   with   his venture.  All told the three tunnels run in aggregate some 500 feet in length,   and the  fourth one lower down   will   be   commenced shortly.   In the  second   level  they are putting   in   a   crosscut   and  ,have encountered a breast of good ore  from 8 to IS inches in   width, that   is  certain to.assay well. It is the intention  to prosecute work   on  the upper level  just above the K. and S. Cody   branch,  commenced, and from it ship directly  on to the cars saving all   the   cost   of  packing.   Mr. Warner is confident further work will develop a valuable property.   The mine will always have one  advantage as shipping charges will  be  but a trifle.  The following inf resting letter has  been received from an old Kasloite,  William Matheson,who will be remembered as one of the first to leave the  Slocan for that vastly overrated region,  known as the Klondyke. "Billy," as  he was familiarly known, has apparently no very flattering idea of the  Yukon gold fields, and the cold liard  facts contained in his letter should  have a healthy effect upon such readers  as are smitten with that grim disease  known as "Klondicitis." Through the  kindness of Mr. Hughy Fletcher, the  communication is given to the public:  ���������Kootenaian.  Rampart City, Alaska.  January 2,1898.  Dear Friend :���������I have baen thinking of writing you for quite awhile,  but could not find any reliable information to give you about this great  and glo ious eonntry. Alaska, in -my  opinion' from what I have seen  and heard of, .will lake care of itself,  and is a pretty good placf to stay away  from. Before Klondyke was lound  there was nothing but starvation he-re,  and 1 think it would be pretty nearly  right, for the old timeis here, as they  call themselves, il it were to blow a  good stifi'breeze.and blow^them out of  existence. -        .'","'  I am at present in a boom mining  camp called Minook. .I'should judge  from what can learn here, that you  will know more about it than I do, aa  I hear it is pretty well advertised in  the papers now. But as I am right  here I have a good chance to know  everything that is going on. There  are about 1,500 locations in this vicinity on different creeks, and , on only  three claims in the whole works that  they are taking pay out so far. The  rest are all dead, waiting for the sucker  to come in this summer to buy. But I  think they will get left. '��������� I  It is no trouble to get an interest in  a claim at present; all they ask is  from ten to twenty days' ��������� work. ; I  think it is too cheap, and I will keep  my work. There is no show to earn  an honest dollar at all. The only show  that a man has is to go to work and  take all the chances, and: the other  fellow takes none. In the first place  you have to build your own cabin,  furnish your cooking outfit and stove,  furnish your own tools to work with  and your own candles and grub, and  and in return you get one dollar per  hour, with only a chance to work five  hours per day at. present, and then  take chances of getti-.g your money  out of the dump in the spring; and I  think right here that a man'will i quit,  loser if he is not careful.  Yours truly;  ' W. Mataeson.  With Scissors and Pen.  The Enterprise mine has 2,000 tons  of ore awaiting shipment.  The   indications    are    the    Mollic  Hughes mine   near  New   Denver  is  likely to turn out a   very   good   property.  On the Mountain View and Blue Jay,  at the head of Silver Tip creek, from  eight to ten inches of clean ore is exposed  A force of men was put to work  last  week on the Mollie Hughes.     The de-,  velopment so far shows a ledge of high '  grade ore.  A large force of men will be . put to  work on the Porto Rico mine near  Ymir as soon as the snow goes off the  mountains.  News has been received   of several ,  rich strikes on Trout lake  properties.  On the Free Coinage a ledge of fourteen  inchps of fine ore'has been struck.  A deal on the Lone Star, on Lexington creek, was made the other day  when Edward Crockett disposed of the  claim to J. A. Magee for $1,508 cosh.  On the Ottawa, a Lardeau creek  claim ore is being taken out, an average assay of which gives 460 ounces of  silver, $33 in gold, and 10 per cent,  copper.'   ��������� ...  Darby & Erririgton, owners of the  Iron Hand group at Albert canyon  have sent seven sacks of ore as a test  to the Nelson smelter. It is a galena  proposition.  The most recent dividend in London  from Kootenay mines is that of the  Ruth mines, limited, which will pny  3 shillings per share and carry forward  ������7,000 out of a profit of ������21,000.  The operatiens at the Hall Mines  smelter for the weekending April 2,  show 7,437 tons of ore to ha^e been  smelted, yielding 357 tons of matte,  containing approximately 156 , tons  copper; 111,420 ozs. silver and 272 ozs.  gold.  The Dundee Mining company has  just let a contract for furnishing material for a three line gravity tramway.  The company will erect trestles and  instal a tramway.

The drift on the seventh level, at a  depth of 340 feet, cut the ore chute in  the Dardanelles, in the Slocan divison,  last week, and encountered a splendid  body of high grade pre. At one time  'during the la8t;week four feet of clean  ore appeared in the face, and yesterday  the drift was in two feet of the same  heart cheering material. This ore is  higher grade, and contains much less  zinc than in the drift above, or in fact  at any other point in the mine, showing great improvement -with', depth.  The lead is fully four feet in width,  with two smooth, well defined walls.  Ore is now coming out at the rate of a  car per week. Manager Tretheway reports that he is more than pleased with  the showing.and says that this instance  of improvement as depth is obtained,  together with the recent strike on the '  the Whitewater Deep at a depth of  1,000 feet, means a great deal to the  country.  A COMPLETE  MEDICIFE  CHEST.  Taken internally or applied externally Yellow Oil is equally efficacious. It  cures Croup, Quinsy, Sore Chest, Cuts,  Burns, Bruises, Sprains, Caked Breasts,  Stiff Joints and dozens of other complaints. No household should be with-  . out it.   It costs only   25c, land   is   a  25 pounds, while stopping to drink in I whole medicine chest in itself.  CURES EVERY TIME.  "I have often had Coughs and Colds,  as well as Bronchitis.

The correspondent  says that Blair violently sat on Tarte,  declaring that dissolution just now  would be suicidal, and was supported  in this by the Ontario members of the  cabinet.  The Ottawa correspondent of La  Piresse says, "The ministers are in a  dilemma over the Yukon railway bill.  A majority of tbe cabinet will," he  says, "have nothing to do with it; yet  this doesiiiot satisfy Sifton and Sutherland, who are sworn.friends ������f Mann  and Mackenzie, and it did not take  them long to prepare another scheme,  which they will press to issue at all  hazards.

It is more   than likely there will be  some kind of a  compromise   between  the Federal government and the Senate through which a railway  on some  route  will be built  to   the Klondyke.  We hope  that whatever terms may be  agreed on, they will involve   no financial burdens on the people of Canada.  It is now conceded, in  well informed  circles, that beyond booming the com-;  mercial business of the  boomsters   in  the coast cities, and making money for  the   transportation   companies, there  never was a necessity for commencing  the construction of such a railway.   In  thc Yukon region there is   no country  to settle, and   no occupations for any  one beyond mining;   and sanguine indeed   must be  the man who   believes  that one-half the money  in gold  will  be taken   out of that region, that will  be spent one way and thc other   by  those  who have gone in search of it.  It is a   south sea bubble   over again,  and will terminate   as disastrously for  all but u. few of those interested in it.:  The result so far has convinced the  government of one  thing���������they went  at the undertaking without proper consideration, that before letting even a  conditional contract, they should have  submitted it to parliament.    The argument of urgency is now  all scattered  to the four winds of the earth, as they  are just where they commenced, so far  as the validity of a contract  with the  contractors   is   concerned.      Dispassionately viewing the whole question,  the government were to blame for entertaining a proposition of such a character without first getting more evidence  on   the  wealth of the  country to be  served by the railway.    Granting that  those parts   explored   by Mr. Ogilvie  are as rich in gold as he says they are,  but of which there is no   indisputable  evidence, as   he saw but  little   of the  country, he could not  give   thc necessary assurance for commencing an undertaking like that���������one calculated to  disturb not only  mining operations in  all parts of the globe, but other classes  of business in all portions of the British possessions, and lead thousand   to  rush to their  financial   and   physical  destruction.    It is .quite apparent that  all who have encouraged thc stampede  to that country have much   to answer  for, and,   in the number,   all   that so  hastily supported the construction of  the Mackenzie and Mann railway.  in any town is commendable; but it  should not be encouraged so far as to  condone even wholesale robbery.  Even  Brother Jonathan   has come  to the conclusion thatmight fe not always right,  and that even   a powerful  state cannot strangle a small one with  impunity, but must be goverfled by the  recognized laws, and usages of civilization.     When   this  Cuban  trouble  first came into prominence, the United  States, gave ��������� Spain   just' twenty-four  hours;,in which' to settle or die,, next it  was found a couple of days were necessary, later that a week was required;  and now .from appearances  Spain  is  given  her own time to set  her   house  right.    No one denies that Spain has  treated Cuba harshly;   but from ; the  way  things are going the  'TJ. S.   are.  coming to the conclusion  they cannot  jump at the throat of the former without observing  acknowledged  formalities, and  the ordinary laws of nations  governing  such matters;    For . a long  time  Turkey had' treated   Roumania  very badly,   and'it was, often thought  Great Britain should   have stepped in  and annihilated, Turkey;   but '.Great  Britain,,kne\v the laws and usages  of  nations too well to'interfere before interference was justified,  and we fancy  that  in this Cuban afiair America is  coining to the same conclusion.    First  impulse, is not. is not always the best;  second thought  may avert  a   conflict  altogether. ,      .. ���������������  now it wili have to rest content with a  more moderate share of .glory as other  places.have to do.   ,  An  English cable to the Montreal  Star advises no one to go to the; Klondyke .with  less than $1,560.., That is  good  as far  as  it goes; but why not  advise those with that much capital to  invest   if in   West Kootenay,   where  there is a chance of doing something  with it.    U every ten  industrious men  with that much means would secure an  undeveloped property around Sandon,  and employ half the effort in mining it  will   require  to,, make a   trip   to the  Klondyke, at the end of the year they  would, have ���������something'  to   show, for  their money besides   the inevitable   at  the Klbndyke���������an empty purse and a  broken down constitution.  SATURDAY, APEIL 16, 1898.  went together. We climbeS t.igiit after  flight of narrow, dark stairs to the top  floor, where the widow dwelt in a miserable little room not more than a dozen  f6et square. The canvasbaok hearse, peculiar to the $25 funeral, stood in the  street below, and the awful cherry  stained box, with its ruffle of glazed  white niusliu, stood on uncovered trusties in the center of the room above.  There was the mother, speechless in  her grief, bGfore thut box���������a group of  hard working, kindly hearted neighbors  sitting about. It was useless to say the  poor woman was propared for the inevitable end���������it was cold comfort to  spealcto her of the daughter's release  from pain and suffering. The bereft  creature, in her utter loneliness, was  thinking of herself and the awful fate  ���������of the approaching moment when*  that box and ifu preeious burden would  ' ���������' -.taken   awav and  leave her wholly  z-  ..1,  tho  The   Rossland Miner   suggests  as  one   of the   ways  open   to   Premier  Laurier to meet  the opposition of the  Senate to his Yukon Railway Bill, the  creation of  sufficient extra senators to  drown   the  present hostile'.- majority.'  Some editors are very wise.    Will the  Miner.Editor  have, the kindness  now  to quote the clauses of the  Canadian  constitution   that  gives  any   premier  such power.    For bur part, we would,  in our simplicity, like to see it even in  tlie Miner;    We  are oaware   that,the  premier* of England, ������backed   by, his  Cabinet, has the power to create Lords  at-will  to help him o'.it of  such a predicament; but   we were  always   con=  vinccd  that  the   premier of  Canada  had no such constitutional scupe.    We  must be wrtirig. however, for the. Miner  says so.    For conviction on the question we would,   however,   like  to   see  the empowering clauses of the   constitution  quoted.     Please quote  them;  friend Miner.  The Bank returns 'fo. February show  there,was $220,000,060, on deposit  with them that,month. .". This would  go to show that there is some -money  in the country after all. ' Qf course if  is not to be expected that all that is  lying on deposit 'bearing interest.  Much of.it is business men's balances  that may be' in use any moment'. All  things considered, however, there is  consideix-ible money in Canada, in tlie  hands of the banks, that; invested in  developing the .country' would be of.  great benefit ,to Canada as a whole.  We very much question if Mr.Bos-  tock, M.P., in supporting the  Cprbin  Road   into the   Kettle'River  section,  voices  the wish,of the  people of this  country���������in short we   know  he", does  not.    The interests of the Corbin outfit lies across the boundary, while those  of the C. P.R. are on this >ide.    This  fact alone   should have   induced   our  M.-P.   to have,, supported,-the, home  ��������� road.in its effort, to get into' that section of the country!    The government  has   already .control of the C.P. R.  rates through the Crow's Nest charter.  A TKIBUTE OF SONG-  smelters.  to  We believe it is only reasonable  surmise that the C. P. R.  would erect  lead smelters in thc Kootenay country  if   the    Federal   government   would  only put  a   reasonable duty   on  lead  products, to keep the home market for  the local producers.    There is a large  market in Canada and   Great Britain  for   lead products that,our   iaw material is   not   filling--that is,   in   fact,  filled by the --products'of the   United  States.--This, of course,   keeps down  the price of the raw material and prevents the employment of'much skilled  labor  in   the   country   that otherwise  would   find employment here.      The  entire  mineral product of the   Slocan  country .proper,   the  Nelson and   the  Lardeau sections averages from 60 to  70 per cent, lead, and this has to find a  market in the States���������paying freight'on  ���������   the ore thither and on   the manufactured article hither.   These two freights  alone   are burdensome,   if  there   was  nothing else in  the calculation;.   The  Rossland Miner writes on  this strain,  and then concludes that if the necessary  duties were imposed the C.P.R. would  at  once   erect smelters   there.     But  why ?    If freights on ores out and on  manufactured goods in are depressing  the price of silver, then freights on the  ore from here to Rosslond would also  depress the price.    One of the first essentials of successful manufacturing is  to bring the   manufactories, and   the  raw material as close together as possible.      If Birmingham,   England,   is  celebrated   above   any place   in   the  world for its manufactories it is simply  because the raw materials���������coal, iron,  etc���������are found there lying side by side  in the earth.    There is no expense in  hauling  them to one   another.      We  fancy the.C. P. R., as a business concern, is  shrewd   enough   to ! look  at  these matters in this light asWell, and  when artificial   conditions  are   made  favorable fo smelting  in  this country  by the government,   they will regard  the natural ones  as well.    Ambition  What the government' will do now,  since the senate has rejected the Mackenzie and Mann railway contract, by,  a vote   of 52;to 14, it is  hard to say.  It is presumed  that   the connract was  made subject to the- ratification of parliament, which, of course,   will let the  government   down' easy ; but in  any  case it is a  disastrous   afiair.    It is  said the contractors have spent half a  million dollars on  the   work  so  far ;  and, of course, the government will be  held  for   considerable   payment anyway.    It is simply a fitting ending for  such a project.    It was  gotten up   in  the first place by boomers for booming  purposes';   and, of course, booms   always burst disastrously  for some one.  The government made   its worst  mistake   in,   unnecessary   speed.       The  scheme should   have   first  been submitted to parliament before a contract  was signed.':  '���������'������������������'!   ���������  So, far about $75,000,000 of "English capital is invested in B. C. mines.  It is a great pity it was not all invested  carefully.       For   instance    Sandon's  mines made- nearly   $1,500,000  for  their owners last year clear ;   and we  venture to.say that less than $100,000  would   cover  the   cost   of the   properties making the    money   for    the  present   owners,    in   the first   place.  There   is,   of course,    more   or   less  gambling   in   mining,  as there is  in  horse racing;  but  as  there   is   every  chance ol possible loss in some horses,  so there   is  of   loss in   some   minint,  properties.    A full consideration of all  the circumstances by a   careful   man,  however,   minimises   these   chances.  Investment   in the silver mines of the  Slocan brings risks down to a   minimum.  Rossland's ambition, it appears, has  received a little checking. Its Board  of Trade and City Council have made  a big effort to induce the C. P. R. to  deflect the Crow's Nest railway from  Nelson, and run it, as they say, more  directly into Rossland. As that town  is in any event getting a station on  that road, ordinary modesty would  have induced the people of that burg  to have remained contented. But no;  the idea is to make that point the hub-  at the expense of the rest of the country. The city has been advised that  its ambition  cannot be gratified, and  There is no plaoe on earth where utter helplessness conies out so strongly,  where the ceremonies in human nse fall  so powerless before the majesty of the  occasion, as at a funeral. It need not be  that one's heart shall be interested. The  obsequies of a stranger conduoted with  all the pomp and vanity of ohurch and  state, with the melancholy rolling drum  of the military funeral, or the gorgeous-  ness of the Masonio regalia apron���������all  are alike inadequate and unavailing.  iBut once in my life have I witnessed  a ceremony that wasso grand, impressive and appropriate to the silent, awful  occasion. .,.'"  I will tell you of a funeral whioh  lingers in my memory as the grandest,  most solemn and befitting ceremony that  was ever given to the dead.  It was rumored many years ago that  a poor widowed woman, leading a hard  life of unending" labor, was called to  part with the one thing dear to her���������her  only ohild. Mother and daughter had  toiled together for 15 years, and the  only bit of sunshine falling into their  dark lives was that shed by their loving  companionship. But the girl had always been sickly. Under the heart-"  broken mother's eyes she had faded and  wasted away with consumption, and at  last the day came when the wan face  failed to answer with its ghastly smile  the anxious, tear blinded eyes of the  mother.  The poor young creatine was dead.  For many months the pair had been supported by the elder woman's sewing,  and it was in the character of employer  I had become acquainted with JMrs.  Cramp and her story. By an occasional  visit to the awful heights of an east side  tenement where they lived, by a few  books and with some oomforting words,  I had won the love of the dying girl.  Hor grateful thoughts turned in her last  hours to the' small/number of friends  she possessed, and she besought her  mother to notify me of the day of her  funeral and ask me to attend.  The  summons reached me upon one  of the wildest days of winter.   A sleet  that was not rain and a rain that was  not snow came pelting from  all points  of the compass.   A wind that wailed in  the ohimney and howled  in  the  street  told how truly dreadful for outdoor purposes was the weather of the day. Ipiled  the glowing grateB, I drew closer  the  curtains and shut ont the gloom of  the  December afternoon.   I turned  on the  gas  and  sat down, devoutly  thankful  that I had out all oonueotion with the  witched weather, when an  installment  of it burst in on me in the  shape  of  Parepa Rosa.    She, was   Euphrosyhe  Parepa at that time, and the oporatio  idol of the oity.   Muffled with  tippets,  flecked with  snow, glowing with  tho  short  encounter she had had with the  elements rushing up the steps from her  carriage, she threw herself into an easy  chair and proclaimed the horrors of the  outer world to be beyond description.  And even as we congratulated ourselves on the prospect of a delightful  day together there came the suhlious  for me to go to the humble funeral of  the poor sewing woman's daughter. I  turned the little tear blotted note over  and groaned.  "This is terrible," said I. "It's just  tbo one errand that could take me out  today, but I must go.:' And thou I told  Parepa the circumstances ttud .speculated  on the length of time I shoulr] be ;.;oi:o  and buggobted means of amusement ia  my absence.   '  ".But I (.ball bo with you," said the  great, good hetirttd ercatcre.  "Your throat and old L'ateman and  your concert tonight:" I pleaded.  "If I get another 'froggy' note in my  voice, it won't matter much; I'm hoarse  as a raven now, " she (returned.  So she rewound hor throat with thr  long, white comforter, pulled on l.ir  Vorste.d gloves, injd ojjf in tbo storm we  aione. So, therefore, .with a' syiii, n  Ing gr������_sp of tho poor, worn, liouy lj  we sat silently down to "utttn-l  funeral.''  The undertaker's man, with a screwdriver in his hand, jumped about in the  passage to keep warm. The creaky boots  of the  minister  belonging  to  tho $26  funeral were heard on the stairs. There  was a catarrhal  conversation held outside between them as to the enormity of  the weather, and probably the bad taste  of, the deceased in selecting such a bad  time to  die was discussed.     Then the  minister came in with a pious sniff and  stood revealed, a regular  Stiggius as to  get up���������a dry, solf sufficient man, icier  than the day and colder than the storm.  He deposited his hat and black gloves  and wet umbrolla on the poor little bed  in tho corner; ho slapped his hands vigorously  together;  he.tOok  himself in  well merited  fashion  by the  ears and  pulled theiii into the glowing sensation,  and  after   thawing  out for a moment  ho plunged into business. ;.  ,  Ho rattled niorrily through some selected sentences from  the Bible.    He  ���������gave., us a prayer that, sounded like peas  in a dried bladtlor, and he came to amen  v. it'll it jerk that brought me up like a  patent snap.'He pulled on his old glovos  and grabbed his rusty hat, and, with his  umbrella  dripping  inky tears over the  well scrubbed floor, he offered a set form  of   condolence  to  the  broken  hearted  mother.; He fold her:of her sin in rebelling against tho deoree of Providence.  Ho assured her that nothing oould bring  the dead ba������k. He inveighed against the  folly of the world in general, and then  he made a horrible blunder and showed  he didn't know even the sex of the dead  by saying,,"He cannot ooiue to you, but  you must go to ..iii.."'  This was a settler for Parepa and myself.   We looked at tbe departing minis  , ter in blank astonishment.' ."  The door swung' wide; we saw the  .screwdriver waving in the air as the  undertaker's man held "converse with  the clergyman. A hush fell ou everybody gathered in the little room. Not  oue word had been uttered of consolation. It was the emptiest, hollowest,  most unsatisfactory moment I ever remember.. ���������������������������;>' '.

Cario, April 8.���������The details of the  defeat of the Dervishes in Nubia show  the Anglo-Egyptian force after a night  march arrived at dawn before the  emeny's camp. When the trenches-  of the dervishes had been bombarded  by the whole Anglo-Egyptian force  made a brilliant rush for tbe trenches.  Tbe Dervishes stutd their ground  bravely and reserved their fire until  the attacking force was quite close to  them.  Mahmoud, the Dervish general, was  among tho prisoners captured. As tl e  dispatch was sent the Anglo-Egyptian  cavalry, horse artillery and Maxim  batteries were pursuing the fugitives.  The losses of the Anglo-Egyptian force  included Captain Urquhart of the  Cameron Highlanders und Lieutenant  Gore of tlie Seal'orth Highlanders,  killed ; and 10 officers of the British  brigade and four British officers in the  Egyptian service wounded.  The Sirdar's force numbered   13,000  men, with 24 guns,and twelve Maxim's  under Colonel long.   The   enemy   left  Shendy with ]9,000 men, but they have  suffered a great deal  from   desertions.  We left yesterd.a)'s camp at   6   p.   m.  and  bivoiiacccl   in   the   desert.     We  reached Mahmound's position atO a.m.  to-day.   They were evidently aware of  our approach.   After an hour of heavy  bombardment the brigades were forced  up'and carried   the   position  at   the  point of the bayonet under a tremendous fire'from the enemy.     The Sarabi  was torn away, but  the   enemy   hung  obstinately to the trenches   and   were  bayonctted in them. During the whole  admirable   bombardment   by   Colonel  . Long not a single dervish was  visible.  The cavalry is now in full pursuit, and  nothing could  haver been   liner   than  the behavior of the troops.    Mahmoud  was captured by   the   Ten   Soudanese  battalion.   He was said to   be   underground the whole time his  men   were  flj,hting.   The prisoners say that Mahmound's forces were deserting in large  numbers   before    the    battle.       The  enemy's guns, baggage,   animals   and  standards  were   captured.     Our , loss  would have been much heavier if the  enemy had not fired high.  PRICES  OF   MAGAZINES,  Tlie following monthly magazines  are always kept in stock at Cliffe's  Bookstore:.

To those Coming }0 Alaska or the Klondike Gold  Fields,  One though should be impressed  upon every miner, prospector or trader  coming to Alaska, to the Klondyke, or  the Yukon country, and that is the nc-  cessity, for providing an adequate and  proper food supply. Whether procured  in the Stater, in tlie Dominion, or al  the supply store? here or futhcr on,  (his must bo his primary' concern.  Upon the manner in which the miner  has observed or neglected this precaution mote than upon any other one  thing will his success or failure depend.. ,.,,'v   ,������������������. ,'���������,'���������  These supplies must be healthful  and should be concentrated, but the  most careful attention in the selection  of foods that will keep unimpaired indefinitely under all tbe conditions  which they will have to encounter is  imperative. For instance, as bread  raised with baking '-i'poWder must be  relied upon for the chief part of every  meal, imagine the helplessness, of a  miner, with a can of spoiled,' baking  powder. Buy only tho very best flour;  it is the cheapest in the end. Experience has shown the Royal Baking  Powder.to.be the most reliable and the  trading companies now uniformly supply this brand, as others will not keep  in this ?climate. Be sure that tlie  ��������� bacon is sweet, sound and thoroughly  cured. These are.the absolute neces  sitics upon which all must place a  chief reliance, andean'under no cir-  cumstsnees be neglected. They may,  of course, be supplemented by aa many  comforts or delicacies as tha prospector may be able to pack or ' desire to  pay for.���������From, the Alaska Mining'  Journal.  50C. 50C.

Rosebery claims, without opposition, of��������� being-  the only junction ou the lake, unlike Slocan City,  . where you can step ofl the steamer to a waiting  train and continue your journey. You can take  either a north or south train at this terminus; consequently Rosebery is the best transient town in  the race. Nervertheless we claim Slocan City  second in, importance, and would say watch the  head and foot of Slocan Lake,"viz   ROSEBERY AND] SLOGAN CITY.  Its Advantages as a Manufacturing  Center.  As a manufacturing center Rosebery claims to  have demonstrated the fact that after the careful  observation of the Denver (Colorado) Ore Coy's  manager, as the natural advantages of all points in  Kootenay for the treatment of ores the cheapest,  Rosebery was selected, and they now are erecting  works, with a capacity of 250 tons per day, which  will be in operation within 90 days; and it is their  intention to pay out  monthly in   the   vicinity of  $100,000.    I might also add Rosebery has the  largest water power from Wilson river flowing into  Slocan Lake.  AS TO CLIMATE.  Rosebery claims the mildest climate on Slocan  Lake, from its admirable southern exposure and  absolute shelter from the north j snow always  leaves the place about the 15th of March.  AS A TOWNS/TE.  As a townsite, Rosebery is without a pe.er. It  is possessed of all the fiat land available at the  mouth of the Wilson river leading to the valley���������  mining region���������consequently there is no danger of  any contagion. The title is a Crown Grant and  is perfect. All purchasers of lots are safe in this  respect. The only safe speculative townsite in the  Slocan is Rosebery.  Why should I say tlie only safe speculative town-  site in the Slocan ? Because Rosebery business  lots to-day are only $150 to $200 each and are  bound to increase rapidly this summer. These  figures can, and will, double. Before long  the time to buy now. Don't wait till they are from  $700 to $1,000, as you did in Slocan City last May,  go in on the ground floor and make a few dollars  in speculation; if you want to invest go to Vancouver or Winnipeg ; if you want to speculate and  and clean up money go quick to Rosebery before  lots are out of sight.

The building is  one of the best in the country ; the appointments and conveniencies are perfection, and Mr. Macdoriugh is one of  the foremost men in the province in  the business, so that the guests of. the  new hostelry may look for the best attention at a most comfortable hotel.  Easter Sunday was observed here in  the two churches by special services,  Scriptural and choral, as it was, undoubtedly, throughout the length and  breadth "of this and other Christian  lands, with but little variation. The  Methodists here, having a church of  their own, had the interior of tbe  building beautifully decorated with  suitable mottoes, cedar, flowers, drapes  etc.  Mr. D. McMillan has returned from  a tour of the south country in search  of a business.location. Of Fort Steele,  he has to say that its future is undecided until the railway reaches it. As  a resedental point he likes, Nelson ;  but he thinks business is quite done,  if not overdone. Ha, thinks, after all,  the prospects of Sandon are as substantial as any place he has seen, and  is likely to settle here in business.  The anxiety with the Klondyke supply houses in the coast cities now it  the ways and means to get rid of their  stocks, the boom having busted. It  would only be the answer to many an  honest prayer, if the half of them went  busted. The dodge, of most of them  was to sell to tenderfeet, for the money  they made out of it, knowing the venture of the tenderfeet was only a rush  to destruction.

The Weights of Brains.  Some interesting facts bearing on  the size and weight of the brain wore  given recentty by Sir William  Turner. In the case of Europeans the  average brain weight is from!49 ounces  to 50 ounces in man,- and from M  ounces to 45 ounces in woman. It is  interesting to note that even in newborn children the hoys have bigger  heads and heavier brains than the  girls. The brains of a number of men  of ability and intelluctual distinction  have been weighed, and ascertained to  be from 55 to 60 ounces. In a few exceptional cases, as in the bruins of  Cuvier and Dr. Abercrombie, the  weight has been more than 60 ounces,  but it should also be stated that brains  weighing 60 ounces and upward have  occasionally been obtained from persons who had shown no sign of intellectual eminence. Ou the other .hand  it has been pointed out that, if the  brain falls.below a certa'n 'weight it  cannot properly discharge its functions. This minimum weight for  civilized people experts have placed  nt 37 ounces for men and 32 ounces for  women.

Pour Jiile,   AV. II.  The Fireman's second dunce of the  season was held Easter Monday evening. Like the former one it was well  managed in all details and largely attended, though not as crowded as the  first, which added much to the comfort  of the dancers, if not to weight of the  Brigade's purse. As there has been no  committee meeting we are unable to  give a financial statement this week ;  but, as the attendance was all that  could be expected and expenses nominal, it must have resulted successful  financially as well as otherwise.  There are many tangible signs of  returning prosperity to this camp.  Many new faces are seen on the streets,  and the incoming trains are bringing  people in well nigh as fast as thpy  took,them out a few weeks a.ao. The  mines, too, are all preparing to increase  their staffs. Mr. White, of the Star,  says they will double their force in  the course of ten days or so,"wh������n the  water supply increases. The slides  on the upper hills are coming down  rapidly, which will enable the smaller  properties in the higher altitudes to  resume operations shortly. All these  agencies will tend to relieve the busi-  nees strain of the past few months, and  encourage the activity of tho placejfof  a yeaic ago.  ASSESSMENTS.
