He owes several bills, though but few believe he has  any money with him.  The Chamber of Mines, which proposed to do much for southern British  Columbia, has not materialized for want  of funds.

He  has also taken a lease on the Ruby Silver in the McGuigan basin.'

The Star expects to start up with its  staff of over 100 men about April 2nd.  Two millwrights from. Nelson are busy-  putting the machinery in good shape for.  concentrating and shipping. It is expected the coming.season will be one of  the best in the history of the mine.  The Hewitt mine is one of the most  promising properties in the Silverton  camp. It has been shipping steadily  since September last, and as the product  is a dry ore, ranging in"value- from 55 to  to 125 ounces of silver, its product earning capacity has not been interfered  with by the recent fluctuations in. the  lead markets. An average of three cars  of;ore 'have been shipped weekly, and  the mine is to continue.on this basis for  an indefinite, period. Thirty men are  employed at present.  Sandon Ore Shipments.

Jtoyal marriages arc so rarely love  affairs that  it is somewhat refreshing to find a manly j'oung prince of  the blood who is willing to sacrifice  not  merely    great  wealth, but even  his coiuntry, loir the sake of his; wife*  This is1.what Prince Charles.' of Denmark is now doing in order to please  his consort, the youngest and favorite  ���������daughter of King Edward.  Prince    Charles   married  his English cousin Maud against the  wishes  of his' parents,  and in  particular of  his coloss'ally rich mother, who had  destined him for the young Queen of  Holland.     The result was that when  Princess Maud went to live at Copenhagen    after   her   marriage her   life  was  made  such  a burden to  her  by  her  niothefr-ia-laW    that she took a  dislike to the country, which sho did  not attempt  to conceal, and became  so  miserable and homesick that she  entreated her parents to arrange for  the    transfer  of  her sailor  husjband  from the Danish nary to  THE ENGLISH N-A.VST,  and for    the    establishment    of hor  permanent home in England, instead  of at Copenhagen.  Her    parents,    devoted      to    their  daughter,   who  in   the Royal  family  goes by the name of "Harry," tried, to  comply    with  her request, but were  met with the strongest opposition on  the patrt of Prince Charles' parents,  -who'not only withheld their consent  to  any such  arrangement, but  likewise threatened to stop their son's allowance, and to disinherit-him unless:  he   remained    at     Copenhagen,    and  abandoned all ideas of taking up his  residence in England.  iA'S.  long as King Edward VII. was;  merely Prince of Wales, ho was not  sufficiently rich  to  ba able to make  .good the income    which they would  hare lost by running counter to the  wishes of  the  Royal family of Denmark, but now, that he has become  "King, the situation has changed, and  the is in a position to do so.  The result is that Prince Charles:  has severed his] connection with the  Dutch nary,  and is about to be  APPOINTED  A   CAPTAIN  ia the English nary.     He is removing all  his    belongings from Copenhagen to England, where   he   already I  has a country seat at Appleton  hall,  oa the    SandrLngham.    estate,  while  the apartments  hitherto occupied, by  the Duke and Duchess of York Ln St.  James' palace are  to be assigned to  him and , to   the Princess  as; a town  residence.  A bill is about to be introduced in  Parliament, providing for his naturalization, as an Englishman, as: has  been done with all other foreign-born  princes who have married English  princesses:, and then made their home  in England. As the young pair  hare no children, they can afford to  forego any fortune that might come  to them from the Prince's Danish parents, and to rely upon tho generosity of King Edward.

Thcaith an nual Mooting of,tho Canada Life Assurance Company was hold on tho 27fch  of obruary. Tho meeting was harmonious, and the following report shows the Company to  ho in a sound and flourishing condition:  Tho number of policies with first premiums actually  paid for in cash during 1900 waa 2899, representing as  surimoes of ������0,397,913.33. This was $868,24'2.52 larger  than tho new business paid forin tho previous year. Of the above amount, ������4,515,510.33  represents tho Canadian business.' Coming now to business originating strictly within the  past yoar, the number of applications lecoivcd was 2210 for ������5,108,351. The number of  policios issued and revived was 2170, and the amount of assurances granted (including new  reversionary additions), was ������5,550,635.55. It is gratifying to be able to announce that a  satisfactory increase in our business has been shown for the first two months of the current;  yoar over tho corresponding poriod of tho last and previous years, tho total assurances  now in force amount to ������81,039,83.  A substantial increaso has taken place in our premium income, which  amounted to $2,951,087.33, or, including considerations for annuities,  to ������3,055,005.33.   The incomo from Interest amounted to the large sum  of ������906.120.27.   Thcso figures exceed tho highest point yet reached by the Company, both  as to premiums and interest.  For the first timo in the Company's history, the claims by doath  oxecoded the million dollar mark, the payments amounting to  ������1,112,307.13, which, however was well within the amount expected. Including bonus additions, the death claims and endowments paid amount to ������1,291,  80.28, while tho dividondsto policy-holders roached the large sum of $865,880.75.  The total payments to policy-holders and annuitants amounted to ������2,282,810.56.  Omitting all annuity transactions, the actual expenses of management for tho year  (including taxes and government fees) amounted to 1-1.03 per cent, of tho income from premiums and interest.   This pcrcontago is less than the corresponding one for the previous  year.  In this connection, a respectful protost should be entered against the unfair measure of taxation which life insurance companies are subjected to by somo Provincial and  State enactments.  The Income.  The Payments.  PRESIDENT'S   ADDRESS.  The President, Hon. George A. Cox, in moving tho adoption of the report, said:  I venture to, think that our Financial Statement this year is one that will command the  confidence of tho public in the sound and prosperous condition of the Company. Indeed, the  Balanco Shoot, doos not, perhaps, fully reveal tho strength of the Company, As most of' you  are aware, the Directors or this Company, as far back as 189u, commenced to look forward to a  change of valuation basis from ii per cent, rato of interest, nd the progress we have made  from that time to this isbestillustratcd by showing what surplus margin the Company would  now have, if its policy liabilities wero valued first, upon the usual American standard; and  secondly upon tho Domitiibn Government standard.  THE STRENGTH OF THE COnPANY.  The surplus upon policy-holders'account, according to the Company's standard, is now  ������1,005,513.53. Now..if we adopted the usual American valuation standard (Actuaries 1 per  cent,.), and had set aside no special reserve fund for a higher standard, our surplus upon  policy-holders' account would have been ������1,073,115.00.  Similarly, upon the Dominion Government Standard ,(Hm. 4i- per cent, and 3i par cent,  for new business), our corresponding surplus would have been approximately ������2,071,000.00. The  relative positions are thus shown to be as follows : '       '  standard  .������1,005,513.6  . 1.673,115.00  . 2.071,000 00-  Surplus on policyholders' account, as por Company's  Surplus on policyholders' account, as per American Government standard  Surplus on policyholders' account, as per Canadian Government standard   While our position is thus shown to bo a strong one, I do not believe it errs on tho side of  being too strong, in view of the transformations that are now taking place in tho financia  world gonerally. and, by many leading companies in particular. The great benefits that will  accrue to our policyholders on account of the increased earning power now established will  become more and more manifest as time elapses.  The large benefits that are now conferred upon the holders of tho Company's policies a  shown by the report, from which it will be seen that ������2,282,810.36 was distributed to policy  holders by way of death claims and matured endowments, profits, surrender values and  annuities.  The Assets.  The Liabilities.  Owing lo the temporary stringency in the money market during tho  past year, lifctlo difliculty was experienced in securing desirablo investments.   The assets of the Company increased during the year by ������1,281,  112.02, notwithstanding tho large payments to policy-holders.   The total assets now amount  to ������22,618,20l.0S, being more than double the amount reported ten years ago.  The vnluation basis at present adopted is Actuaries 1 per cent,  for old bu-iinoss, Hin. 3V per cent, for new bonus additions and  annuities, and Hm. 3 per cent, for policios issued sinco 31st Dec  ember, 1S99. .After providing for these liabilities and for tho Special Reserve towards the  new standard, as woll as for all other liabilities to policy-holders, there remains a surplus  on policy-holders'account of ������1,005,513.35. At 31st December last the paid-up capital  stoodat������3S3,900.C0.  With a valuable accumulated experience of  nearly 51 years; with a ' long-established  reputation for solidity, integrity and econ  omy; with assets revalued and held upon a conservative basis; with reserves largely in  excess of Government requirements; with now plans of assurance and liberal policy contracts, the Company enters upon the now century with renewed energy and with resources  and oquipment requisite to meot tho strain of a financial crisis, if it appears, or to, reap  the advantages of prosperous periods as thoy recur.  ���������-.-,:���������  GEO.

"You make another  move like that, and I'll pump the slugs  In you!"  "Please let me," pleaded the little  man as his hand again slid toward his  pocket.  "Please let you!" roared the desperado.

Kew observatory, near Loudon,  which is being kept before the public mind because of the threatened  derangement of its delicately-made  instruments by the installation of  electric tramways at Hammersmith,  some miles distant, is more than a  home of magnetic mystery. Many  watches constructed for scientific and  other special purposes', are here subjected to tests which tax their capabilities to the utmost.  The   branch   of    the   observatory  where  this    interesting operation ig  carried on. is known as the rating department    of the    National Physical  Laboratory..    The   observer, Mr. E.  G.  Constable,  states'  that about 500  watches  are  tested yearly and  that-  10,400 have passed through their hands}  since the department was opened.  ':.. lAia ambitious watch in pursuit of a  firat-clasa' certificate commences its  career at Kew by standing upright for  five days in , an ordinary safe.     It  spends a similar .'period in three other; positions and is' then placed on its  back in a refrigerator.      After five  days of that icy abode it is removed  to an oven kept at a temperature of  90 degrees Fahrenheit, and is at lasjt  restored to a normal temperature. All  this time the watchful eye of the observer    has   been ': upon it, and the  watch's behavior duly noted in books.-  Every    variation of    a second the  watch   makes in   tne different positions  and  temperatures  is.' carefully  entered, and certain  marks for  and  against , are    given  it.      What  this  means will be the better appreciated  when it is explained that Kew possesses instruments   capable   of indicating, the hundredth part of a second.  The highest marks awarded to a  watch are 100, and if it gains over 80  tho words "especially good" are written on its certificate when the watch  leaves the observatory. Last year  the lowest marks received by a watch  were 44 and tho highest 90.1. The  latter  was  English  made.  OARE OF THE EYEGLASSES.

SATURDAY, MARCH 30, 1901.  A REFINERY,  The effort sthat British Columbians  are now making to secure the establishment of, a refinery somewhere in Canada  are not only proper, but highly ���������commendable from every point of view.

Talk to some who are supposed to know  the ins and outs of it, and they will tell  you the C.P.R. charges to the boundary  are in the way, while others who profess  to be equally well posted, say it is the  over stock of lead   ore at home and the  scarcity of fluxing ores that have caused  the shut down on   the B. 0. article.   To ���������  producers and the pubJicol" the province  as a whole, what the cause of the exclusion may be is a matter of but little concern���������as the consequences  to them are  the same in any event.   As God is almost  invariably on the side of those who make  the most vigorous effort   to help themselves, the steps our people are the most  sensible in self defence.   It is generally  undertood there is a Canadian company  ready to build, equip Mid.'operate, a re-  refinery, if its operations are  treated by  the government   as   are the iron industries of the country���������given a bonus, on  output for a given time.    Under the circumstances as they exist at the present,  the government cannot refuse it.  The bonus given the iron industry is  to stimulate mining operations in the  country, for the benefits they may bring  ������������������. the people in the shape ol" revenues, employment for miners and mechanics, and  business for business   men the country  over in its  various  ramifications.   The  production and  handling of silver-lead  ores will do for the country precisely the  same thing. They will employ thousands  of miners, keep up   a  commercial   and  miscellaneous community in the scenes  of operation, open a market for the agricultural,productions of the farming districts of British Columbia, Manitoba and  the   Territories, create   sales  for   the  manufactured products of the eastern  provinces, and employment for the capital of investors the country over.  The industry for the time being may  not be as large as that of the iron production, but neither will it be as great a  drain on the treasury of the country.  Apart from all these considerations a  refinery will lead to lead manufacturing  and keep at home a lot of money now  paid for manufactures,and to employees,  in other countries.  It is, of course, possible that  after  a  short time the Americans may come to  their senses and bid again for our ores,  but tlie country can never suffer by having the.second market for them and the  second  system  of handling   them.   It  will only be  to  mining what a second  railway   is   to   shippers.   There are, of  course, some   who   say it  is money all |  these bonus hunters are after.   That is '  quite true; but if money to them means  money to the public as well, why should  it not be given?  To the present refining has never been  tried in this country���������it is only a venture, and generally capital looks for  something tangible in a venture. Railway rates are high in this country on  ore and bullion as on all other commodities, labor ia expensive, and the sale  of lead is subject to market fluctuations.  With all these conditions  staring  capi-1  from usual food; and this is  the way to restore the whole  body.  We'll send you a little to try if you like  SCOTT &BOWNK,   Chemists, Toronto.  talists in tlie face, there is nothing at all  unreasonable in their looking  for something substantial in a refinery venture.  They have to sell their lead in England,  the Orient and other countries, where  they are met by the   lead   merchants of  the United States, Spain, Australia and |  other countries, and must take the prices  that   others   take.   The 'bonus is then  simply intended to help  them   in  overcoming  heavy   transportation  charges,  keen competition, and to carry the,product  in   time   of low prices. "There is  everything,to commend the  principle,  and   no  reason   why the  government  should not readily grant the request.  eause the organ grinder was  not chosen  a delegate.   His dread is that when the  refinery is built it   may pass   into   the  hands of an   outside corporation.   Bis  suggested .cure   is to have it built and  leased or operated  by the government.  The miners' unions suggest government  ownership of railways, and to be a union  I champion, and a "hell of a fellow" with  the miners in general, he wants everything built by the government.   Canada  will he a veritable   paradise   when   the  government builds and operates all the  smelters, refineries, general stores, printing offices, etc., etc.. leaving nothing for  any Canadian to do with his talent, enterprise or wealth, but work by the day  for the government and  draw his day's  pay.    It never occurs lo the  Bluestreak  philosopher that governments, as a rule,  to allow scope to their more enterprising  subjects, are   very   slow   in   conflicting  with commercial interests, for  the  best  w.

The expected has happened���������the ore  both',on the Auror property on the west  side of the lake has been encountered.  .Some days ago a ledge of four feet of  ' concentrating ore was struck, but after  drifting about 20 feet further on a three  foot ledge of solid galena was encountered. These two ledges are parellel with  each other and are well defined. The  strike was made in the crosscut of the  No. 1 tunnel, which is now m a distance  - of ;300 feet. This crosscut leaves the  main tunnel 100 feet in from the mouth  and runs in a northerly direction. At  the end of the crosscut it i-j estimated  that a depth of at least 200 feet has been  attained.  The strike on the Aurora is one of the  most important ever made in the camp.  It has always been contended by mining  men that.the St. Eugene lead extended  across the lake, and this theory is now  apparetly verified.

The Northwest JMining News in its last  issue published an unbiased comparison  between the Slocan Star and the Le Eoi,  and which is certainly very creditable  to the former. The capital of the Star is  MOO.OOO, and it has paid dividends to  the amount of $400,000, or four-fifths of  ils entire canital. The Le Koi's capital  is :$5,000,000, and the amount paid in  dividends .$1,305,000, or a little over one-  lifth of its capital.' Comparing the two  from the standpoint of capital and dividends, the Star shows up away ahead  of the Le Roi. After explaining the difference between the properties, the  former being a silver-lead and the latter  a gold producer, it winds np by saying  the Le Roi is only in its infancy, and no  <>ne doubts but that lartre dividends will  lie paid later: but for management certainly more credit is due to the Star for  its practical mining.  It may also be stated that the Star is  in its infancy also, and from present indications, and the fine showings made  lately on the property, everything points  lo its becoming one of the best mines in  the province.  ��������� *<**������*4*44>������**������������*������********^+4*������ ++++*+*+*4+*4*++*4++++*+*++4**4>+44**+++4>++*+44>4<>++**  The Black Prince, at Slocan, shipped  a car of ore this week.

Hearing that ho had received great benefit from the use of  JJr. Williams' Pink Pills, a reporter of  the Mirror called to obtain particular   of    the   cure, and Mr. Delaney  cheerfully    gave him    the following  statement.      "Last March,"  said he,  "my health    became  so poor  that I  (was   compelled to   quit   work.     Tho  chief symptoms of my illness  ' Avetre  extreme weakness in the legs, loss of  appetite, and palpitation of the heart.  The  least exertion    would cause my  iheart to palpitate violently, and if 1  stooped to pick up anything I would  be overcome with dizziness. My legs  ���������were so  weak that' I was compelled  to  sit  down to put my   clothes  on.  GQhe doctor I consulted said I had a'  bad case of   anaemia.   lie prescribed  for me   and   I   took three bottles of  medicine, but all the while factually  grew worse until I became so weak  and emaciated that it seemed impossible  that I could  recover.     Having  yead of the cures effected by Dr. Williams' Pink'Pills I determined to give  them a trial.   From  the  first  box I  noted an  improvement in my condition.     My legs became stronger, my  appetite improved, and by the time I  ihad used four boxes I felt better than  I had done for months.      That    the  (pills are a wonderful remedy there is  not the least doubt.     I can do light  iwork about home without experiencing any of the unpleasant sensations  that I  once underwent.     I feel an altogether  different  man  despite    the  ifact that I am now sixty-seven years  of age.

"BDBS" WRITES HIS STORL  THE SOUTH AFRICAN WAR AS TOLD  BY LORD ROBERTS.  IEIsks Willed He Took In His ������reat March  Into tlie lOiiciay'H Country��������� IHfili I*ral*<������  for Kltclicnci- or Klinrioiiiu���������"The Men  Were Splendid."  These  very able  and  lucid papers  will fcrm tho ground work of all future histories of the campaign. Their  publication has resulted in a quickening of gratitude   towards  the   great  general who saved South Africa   for  the empire.   We see from this narrative how real and how terrible were  the risks which Lord-Roberts accepted  when he decided to push into the heart  of the enemy's country, never resting  till Bloemfohteio and   Pretoria   wero  in British  hands,  says    the    British  Weekly.   On arriving in  South Africa he found that tlio Army Corps had  been broken up, portions having been  sent to reinforce d3uller, Methuen and  Gatacro. Each of those generals .was  practically helpless, and  no progress  had been made after the reverses of  December.   Lord  Roberts   wisely   decided not  to   use  the reinforcements  which were coming out to strengthen  either the Natal or the .western army,  but to organize'a strong force of his  own,  with   which  he    could  advance  directly towards Bloemfonteba. He, admits that his own plan was attended  with  considerable    danger,     as    the  enemy held the two main roads leading from Cape Colony to the Orange  Free State, and might destroy bridges  and curt, the railway line. He resolved,  however, to go forward, but not until he had thoroughly reorganized  THE TRANSPORT SERVICE. .  Lord  Kitchener's  assistance  was  invaluable in remodelling the extravagant system previously adopted,which  as the Commander-in-Chief sarcastically, observes, "might answer well enough    for peace    manoeuvres."     On  hearing that Sir Redvers Buller had  withdrawn  from  Spion   Kop  to  Pot-  gieter's Drift,  Lord  Roberts  decided  that, his  own   advance  must  not  be  longer delayed.   He set out with 35,000  men  and   about a hundred guns, his  immediate object being to relieve Kim-  berlcy.   His plans were admirably conceived and    were    carried out    with  scarcely a hitch.   Ten days  after, he  Roberts remarks that, large as the  force appears to be in South Africa,  it has proved all too small for the  duties it has had to perform. Apart  from his own despatches, which proTe  that the country has in no .way exaggerated his  SUPREME MILITARY GENIUS  there is an interesting series from  Sir George White, dealing with the  siege of Ladysmi'th, and from General Buller, describing the operations  of the Natal army. At the end of  May General Buller had an interview with Christian Botha and attempted to bring about a surrender.  He informed him that Lord Roberts  he crossed the Vaal and that further fighting was useless. A three  days' truce was arranged while Christian Botha communicated with his  Government and General Buller with  the Commander-in-Chief. Buller had  previously told Botha that his own  terms \vcre that the men should sur  DODD'S KIDNEY PILLS HAVB  LAID CLAIM TO THIS  TITLE.

He believed it would cost him about  five hundred killed and wounded to  get out of Natal,, and asked what  terms, if any, he might offer Botha.  Lord Roberts demanded unconditional surrender, and the negotiations  fell through. General Hunter's comments form another most interesting  appendix to the despatches. His  frank criticisms'ought  to  be   useful  men and women suffering with  Bright's Disease, Diabetes, Rheumatism and Female Troubles. The local druggists are selling a great deal  of this remedy. Right here there occurred a case which is of more than  ordinary interest. Mrs. Elizabeth  Brooks was for years a sufferer with  Kidney Disease. She is a lady well-  known and highly esteemed, and her  story of recovery .has caused general  satisfaction. She writes: , ,  - "I wish to make known- to all what  good I have obtained through the use  to the War  Office.   All the generals   of Dodd's Kidney Pills. They .are a very  agree that "the men were splendid."  Sir A. Hunter quotes Napoleon's  praise of British infantry, and,speaking from,his experience in South Africa, says that since Napoleon's time  our soldiers have not changed except  to improve. From first to last the  private soldier's work was nobly  done.  AN IRISHMAN'S CALENDAR.  It is always fair weather with the  residents of the Emerald Isle. The  tourist may be drenched to the skin  with the wettest of rain, but every  native he meets will assure him it is  "a foine day."  It is only when an Irishman takes  iiis pen    to   write    that he numbers  something beside the sunny hours, as  in the effusion below, which is marked by rather more truth than poetry;  Dirty days  hath  September,  A'pril, June and November,  From January up to May  The rain it raineth every day,  A-llthe rest have thitrty-oine  Without a blessed gleam of sun;  Aind  if  any of    them had  two-and-  thirty,  they'd be just as wat and twice as  dirty.  started for the front Kirnberley was  relieved and Cronje was fleeing towards Bloemfontein, It is interesting  to notice that Lord Roberts, like Sir  George White, had received timorous  advice from the politicians. Sir Alfred Milner had warned him against  denuding Cape Colony of troops, but  this risk he determined to disregard.  No British general over found himself  Ln a more anxious position than Lord  Roberts on February Gth. Another  depressing message had come from  Sir Redvers Buller, who reported that  it would cost him from] 2.000 to 3,000  men to drive back the enemy and gam  access to the Ladysmith plain. Gen.  Buller at this tirnc'was evidently preparing to  ABANDON LADYSMITH  to its fate. Ho asked if Lord Roberts  thought the chance of relieving tho  town was worth the risk. Lord Roberts replied that the town 'must bo relieved whatever the cost, and urged  his colleague to persevere. Buller  again reported on the 9th of February  that ho regarded the operation as impracticable with his present force. The  communications between the two  generals at this juncture throw a  startling light on the whole history  of tho war and can only increase  the thankfulness of the nation that  Lord Roberts was sent out after the  first disasters.  The despatches of February and  March explain a few points which  have hitherto been doubtful. We do  not learn, however, which officers  were responsible for the mistake at  Paardeberg and the reverse at Sanaa's Post.  Lord Roberts, or the War Office, in  editing hia despatches, has carefully  shielded individuals. Many officers  and men are selected for praise. Of  Lord Kitchener, the Commander-in-  Chief, writes :���������"I am grreatly indebted  to him for his counsel and cordial support on all occasions. I consider he  has rendered invaluable service, to the  State in his onerous and responsible  position."   In his final    letter,   Lord  GENTLEMEN AS HACK DRIVERS.

HIS  SHIP AT TRAFALGAR,  Ami Thai r,;ty Upon Ills Leaden Collin IIii-  III   II   Was   Lowered   tnio   Hie   Tomb,  Has Keen In ���������liielniiaii for Nearly Ten  Vears���������Snatched by .Sailor  '" ihe firuvc.  Mr. W. A. Davidson, of Cincinnati,  has a relic he treasures very jealous-  ��������� ly, and one that he exhibits only to  tne chosen few.of his acquaintance. It  is the personal' flag1 of Lord Horatio  Nelson���������the flag that designated his  ���������rank as. a Vice Admiral-in the English navy and announced his presence  on board the "Victory," his flagship  in the memorable battle of Trafalgar  October 21, 1805,  This, was  Nelson's last as  well  as  his  greatest  sea  fight,  for he    was  - mortally wounded early in the action,  and died before the" completion of the  victory which has made his name famous.   His remains were taken back to  England, and it was this flag    that  covered the leaden casket in    which  they reposed.   Dying thus in the moment of   a victory that   was so mo-  mentous,Nelson, of course, was mourn-  ���������    ed  as  the English had  never  before  mourned the death of a war hero,' and  his funeral was. one of the most pretentious London ever witnessed.     At  St.    Paul's    Cathedral       where    the  "Hero of the Nile and of Trafalgar"  was buried, this flag again   came in-  td prominence, being the cause, during  the solemn  obsequies,  of a .rudo  break that one would hesitate to believe   occurred   were it  not recorded  by  eyewitnesses    and ' mentioned  by  several reliable  biographers of      the  great  naval    colmmander.    When the  funeral procession reached the church  the remains    of   Lord    Nelson    were  borne from ihe car to the grave  by  12 stalwart men from the "Victory."  Tlie casket was, of course, covered by  the flag,  which was removed during  the-final ceremonies.  SAILORS SEIZED IT.  When these were concluded the flag  -���������as has long   been   the   custom,,    was  about  to  be lowered  into  the grave  four  feet   wide  and  eight  feet  long  and is one solid piece of cloth  made  of sea island cotton, interwoven with  silk.   This is unusual, for most flags  are made  of   different pieces of di-  ferent color,  it  being easier to connect the pieces than to color different  lines.   The main ground is white and  the coloring still clear   and   bright  ,    ..   T       was evidently put   in    by' a process  .r Nearly    en   ^^ used iQ the manufacture 0f war  rs at feme oi   fiag5j tha<; Qt p,r0tecti:ag all but the  parts . to be tinted, between    wooden  blocks tightly screwed together while  the  flag  was, immersed in  the  dye.  It is precisely alike and equally bright  on  both sides showing that it could  have been colored by no ordinary process'of printing.  ��������� A strip four inches wide is gone  from the rope end. This was evidently cut by the sailor who first seized  the flag. The threads end abruptly  and the markings, though not absolutely straight, are cleaa as though  done with a. knife. Sixteen inches are  missing from the-other end which is  stringy and certainly bears evidence  of having been torn. It was this  strip, 1G by 48 inches, that was torn  into fragments by the men. Of  these at least one is in the United  States. It is in the possession of Mr.  W. J. Carter, of Ft. Worth, Texas.  This piece is of the same material  as the rest of the flag, and upon comparison it has been found would fill  tiie missing space in the lower right-  hand corner. Mr. Davidson has also  been told of two other pieces in the  United States but he has no definite  knowledge ��������� of them.  The flag  has   been  examined , with  great interest  by  several men    who  have served in the English navy* among them Signal Lieutenant A. J.'Parker, now residing in St. Louis,  who  says   that' it   is. the   ensign   that   at  that day was floated by the "Admiral  of  the  White  Squadron,"  as  distinguished from similar ensigns in red  an dblue.   Of the gradations the red  was the highest, but in 1805 was not  and for more than a century had not  been in use, lieiico the .white indicated  the officer in supreme command. The  red, however, was revived on the occasion of  the  promotions of officers  who. served in  this same battle,  but  it was a color Lord Nelson never float-  od.   Lieutenant Parker also ,says that  iin matorialand device it accords with  the regulations of the time.   Mr. Davidson has corresponded with men high  in  authority  in   the  British  Department of the Admiralty and the authenticity of this relic has never been questioned.  THE  ADMIRAL'S  REPORT.

In the  confusion it was thoughtto have been  torn into pieces, but such was not the  case, for most of it is still intact and  in a good state of preservation.'    It  was saved from destruction; by John  . dyne, the sailing master of tlie Victory, who was then in charge of the  men.   Before the work of demolition  had gone far he got possession of it  and concealed it under his waistcoat,  where, rough and ready jack tar that  he was, ho was: able to protect it.  This action of the sailors at Nelson's tomb seems not to have been  censured or rebuked in any way, but  rather regarded as a heart-felt, if too  forcible, expression ot their love for  thek fallen chief. At all events they  were allovypd to retain their tokens,  an'd^.severai fragments are still in  existence in different parts of the  world.  John Clyne kept his part until his  death, leaving it to his widow, Margaret,    who in    turn   cherished the  memorial until she died.   It then became the property of their son, who  brought it with him to America about  10 years ago.   From bim.it passed into  the possession  of Mr.    Davidson,  who, as stated above, guards it very  jealously, keeping it locked in a safe  with his watches and jewels.

Dividend Goes Into Development.  j At a meeting of tlie directors of tlie  Payne Consolidated Mining Co. held at  their head office in Montreal, on Thursday, the 21st ult., it was decided in the  interests of conservative managemont  to.withhold the quarterly dividend,  which has been distributed at the rate  of 3 per cent, or 12 per cent.,per annum.  The funds will be utilized for the purpose of carrying on development. The  company will shortly issue the following  circular to its sharholders:  "In view of unexpected delays in the  development of No. 8 tunnel, and the  necessity of keeping a good cash reserve  on hand, which at present amounts to  over $125,000, the directors have decided  to pass the dividend for the present  quarter."  A Good Suggestion.  British Columbia possesses resources  second to none, and it would be well for  her to march boldly into the camp of  her competitors and let this fact be  known. This could be accomplished at  comparatively little expense by opening  a British Columbia office, or bureau of  information at the Pan-American Exposition. With a good live commissioner  in charge, well versed in the advantages  and resources of the province, and supplied with abundant carefully compiled  literature, much could bo done towards  turning at least some of the tide in this  direction.���������Kain loops.

Jack Aitchison has secured a lease on  the Slocan Chief, at the head of Ten  Mile creek, and owned by the Warner  Miller syndicate. Last week four men  went up to commence operations. The  mine is well stocked with provisions,  tools and general supplies, and has comfortable buildings. The ledge is eight  feet wide and has been opened up by  two tunnels, one in 143 feet and the  other, below, in 150 feet. The ore is  galena, carrying considerable ruby silver  which contains high values, while the  poorest of the ore shipped assayed 258  ounces in silver.  Several years ago Major Reed, of Silverton, staked a claim on the lake shore,  just west of the C..P. R. wharf, in the  west Slocan townsite, and after holding  it some time allowed it to run out. A  few weekB ago Geo. Nichol, Jas. Rogers  and Pete McKeown restaked it into  claims. They have been working it  since with good results. The ledge is  over 25 feet wide and contains a great  deal of iron, while gold values of $6.50 is  being obtained from the surface.  COFFEE ROASTERS  Dealers in TEA AND COFFEE.
