Hume & Co,  The slim attendance at the hospital  meeting on Ttiursdiiy night was not  very creditable to Revelstoke. This  hospital project is ono of the utmost  importance lo the town. Everybody  should take 11 hand in it and help-  cat ry it through to a successful completion, Everybody, business men,  mining men, railway men,professional  men should make a special point of  attending the meeting tomoirow night  whicli is to be held in the council  chamber, No, 2 fireball, at So,k, At  that meeting a regular hospital  association will be formed under the  act providing for such institutions and  a good attendance is necessary in order  that a strung, influential and representative provisional board of directors  may be chosen, on whom will devolve  the duty of heading the movement  and carrying it out on business and  practical lines.  The manufacture of pulp wood is to  be assisted hy the provincial government. There is 110 place where such  an industry could be prosecuted.under  more favorable conditions than right  here in Revelstoke, which has thousands of acres ot spruce within easy  reach on the Columbia, The establish-'  ment of a smelter in Kootenay is  becoming very general. Revelstoke  again offers facilities as the chief C. P.  R. railway centre iir the mining  district of the mainland, which cannot  be surpassed and it is railway connections, which make a great smelting  centie. which alone made Omaha for  instance a great smelting centre,  though it is situated 011 the plains  hundreds of miles fiom ore, com or  any thing else required in the industiy.  And as the only point ol itnpoilance in  Kootenay at which the O. P., R. has  largo holdings of land it is altogether  likely that the company would view  with a very favorable eye the establishment of a smeltei- here.  provincial, 011 ';the-mining  industry'of  -Britisii^OdluiiiiVia," 'liiiye got"' ir." llieir  After the two proposed   royal   commissions,    one .Dominion    nud "one  'of  Ve  deadly work, it is to be hoped for'the  sake of every mining' camp in the  louutry thnt our legislators w ill let up  tinkering at our mineiul laws and the  laws affecting the-mining interests in  the country -generally. A few years  ago the mining laws of lhis province  were quoted as models what such laws  should be. They weie to a large  'extent "mining customs crystallised  into statutes. The constant alteration's which have been going on at  them for the last few yeais have not in  the opinion of tbe mining community  been a general rule improvements,  while the feeling of instability and insecurity which the continual shifting  of the conditions, under which the  industry was carried out, has had a  most deterring effect on capital. There  is nothing which discourages investment more quickly or completely.  Foremost among the follies perpetrated of'late years to the injury of  the mining industry under the name  of law by our provincial legislators has  beori.the constant increase of-the bur-  REFUSE TO LIFT COAL.  C. P. R. Will not Furnish Cars for the  Crow's Nest Co. Till B. C. Consumers are Supplied.  With regard to the strained rein tions  now existing between the Crow's Nest  Coal Company and the O. P. Railroad  company it is stated on good authot ity  that the transposition company has  refused lo lift curs for Montana or  other American points until such a  time as the coal company has fulfilled  its promise to supply the British  Columbia market. This refusal ou the  part of the C. P. R. is the cause of all  the attacks which are being made on  lhat company in this connection.  The C, P. R. company has been buying steam coal iu Lethbridge for some  lime past at an advanced figure in  oider co relieve tlie pressure, but with  a renewal of the American contracts  by the coal company the railroad  condcluded to bring things to an issue.  It appeals that at the time of lhe  strike some of the smelters were forced  lo close down and of course cut off  their orders for coal and coke tempor-  ���������tarily. The coal company then made  some three months' contracts with  American plants to the extent of about  SOO tons of coke,per day, and it is  understood that these contracts have  in some cases been renewed, although  the blowing in of the Canadian  smelteis would absorb nearly- all the  daily products of the mines and ovens.  Those on the inside- express 'no  hesitation in saying that Hill has  secured control*of lhe.coal company.  They also point out that it is not to  the interests of James Hill to build up  Canada, and that lhe America Refinery  company is only too anxious to close  up all Canadian smellers. This naturally leads to tbe supposition that there  will be played a,1, cool waiting game,  No changes will be made in tlie coal  company's management, or in the  oidinary pi ogress of affairs until such  a time as a means has lieen secured, to  get the products to the boundary line.  Then the fine sloping- Italian hand of  Jim Hill will become more in evidence,  ���������irul with a conli ol Of the 1 on I company  stock Jt will not. be hard to see the  linish-of .these? smellers-whierrde'pelid'  on the Ciow's-Nest fortheir supplies  of coke.  The company is bound by their  agreement lo sell coal to Biitish  Columbia at certain fixed rales, ��������� a  maximum of $2 per ton, but there is  nothing to prevent them fixing llieir  own prices on coal- shipped to the  United States and supplying- thuL  market first.  These difficulties will be more or  less present, until British Columbia has  her own refining plants and can handle  her mineral products from the mine to  the bars without, calling on or needing  outside assistance.  Meanwhile it remains to* be seen as  to hnw'fni- tbe C. P. R: will be able to  enforce-its demands that'the British  Columbia consumers shall first be  supplied with the products of the  Crow's Nest Pass Coal company before lifting cars 'for the American  market.���������Province. -  U. S. Trust and B. C.   Mines.'  (Nelson Miner.)  Messrs, Simon and_ Daniel   Gugger-  aens of taxation laid upon the miner.  The origin of this fatal course of  legislation has been the fatuous  opinion entertained by our legislators  that the best way to raise a revenue  in a mining country is direct taxation  of mining men and mining ptoducts,  This idea is [totally, contrary lo the  truth. The best way to raise a revenue  from a mining country is to do as our  American cousins do, throw the  country open to mining men and  foster in every way the ��������� production  into use of the hidden, and until produced absolutely worthless, resources  of the initios. They look to raise a  revenue from the towns and villages  which the opening up of lhe country  builds np and from lhe numerous  other enterprises which lhe development of the mines either calls into  existence or stimulates into renewed  activity. Supposing for instance  instead of imposing a two per cent  royalty on the products of' our mines  the provincial government were to  grant a two per cent bonus on every  ounce of silvei taken out of them. Can  any one doubt that properties would  at once begin operation in every  direction and that under the stimulus  of the rush of mining activity, milling  towns and camps would spring up in  tens where now there is one and that  the revenue derived by the province  from the various, businesses carried on  in tlieni would pay for the bonus over  and over again to say nothing of the  prosperity, whicli would be felt in  every corner of trade throughout the  province. But our legislators have  not got further than the wood pulp  iudustiy in their bonussing schemes so  far and are probably figuring how  they can best squeeze the mining  industry to pay the wood pulpers.  There are other mining countries in  tho world besides Brilish Columbia.  There is one called Mexico. Iu mines  are reputed to be the richest on I.he  I American continent B"t 'l>et" S*> re  ! 1 ��������� pA'-ii:; ni ;*J,-v.*(i     ll ha-   b*'."i  la-*"  1  To Lease the Narrow Guage,  The Great Falls & Canada railroad  and the Alberta Railway & Coal  Company's road has recently applied  to the Canadian parliament for permission to lease their road, commonly  known as the "narrow guage" to the  Canadian Pacific Railroad. The request was presented only a few days  ago, and the Canadian parliament has  not taken any action as yet regarding the matter, hut ib is more than  probable that it will be granted.  President Edwin Gait of the "narrow  gauge," returned to Lethbridge Monday from a protracted stay in Loudon,  England, and Montreal, where he  conferred with the principle owners  ot the narrow gauge stock and the.  ollicials of tbe Canadian Pacific to  arrange matters to convert the narrow guage to a standard gauge road.  The leasing of the nairow gauge to the  Canadian Pacific is 11 movement lhat  has long been predicted anil seems  about to he realized. The conversion  of the road is of considerable interest  to the -residents of 'Great Falls and  northern Montana,. and the recent  announcement fully confirms the story  published .by the Leader last fall  regarding broadening of the narrow  gauge road. President Gait is expected to 'arrive in Great Falls in a few  days on his way to Salt.Lake City.���������  Great Falls Leader.  Calgary Opinion on J. J Hill's Charter.  J. J. -Youtig of Calgary came in on  Sunday. evening. Speaking to a  Herald . man -he- seemed rather  surprised at the opposition, which Mr.  Hill's application for'a charter to connect with the Crow's Nest road, at  Michel has created in Kootenay.. ,-In  Alberta'they are in favour of the  charter as giving-a competing and  direct route for' Alberta' coal - lo the  Montana market, which is something  they have been looking for for some  time. Thc idea th.it'the pioposed' line  might, injure the"'Kootenay smelting  and mining industries, on which the  catlle and . farm. products trade of  Alberta is so largely .dependent, had  not occurred to people in Calgary.  THE RAILROAD SITUATION.  Sir William Van Home's Views on the  Government Control of Roads.  Montreal, Feb 21,���������Sir William  Van Home, chairman of the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company was asked  yesteiday if he held viows in favor of  the nationalization of railway-, and  their administration hy a board, for the  benefit of the Canadian people as  alleged by Mr. \V. F. Maclean, in the  Commons. Sir William said: "1  have never expressed an opinion in  favor of governmental control of railways. My opinion was asked on the  subject the other day, and I replied  lhat, unless tho management of railways could be kepi out of politics,  governmental control would certainly  be disastrous. And, in reply to a  further question. I said that <i national  botiid of directors entirely beyond  political control or influence, might  succeed in handling railways to the  benefit of the country, but I could not  see how such n board could be established and maintained on a sufficiently  independent footing. I regard it as  impossible."  Accident to- Baptie,, the. Fancy Skater.  Baptie, the fancy skater, who was to  an exhibition iu the rink; here tonight  came to grief while givingjian exhibition at Edmonton. While skating  against time for a quarter mile his foot  struck an obstruction and he fell.  Regarding the accident The Bulletin  says; So swift was the speed and so  great the momentum that the skater  seemed to shoot into the air before  pitching headlong on the ice. The  fall was a cruel one, but Baptie struggled to his feet anil with the. blood  rushing from bis face-and mouth .was.  taken .to the dressing room. His leg  was injured, his hand torn, and bis  face cnt'andbruised, bul he escaped  without serious internal injury,. It  had been intended to have him repeal  the peiforrnance heie tonight, and. he  was"also hilled for an- exhibition % in  Strathcona last night, bnt his injuries  compelled him tocanceliall dates, r and  he went south this 'morning. '. 1  Atlin an Hydraulic Camp.  J. D. Graham, the Atlin gold commissioner, paid the Hiskalu a call on  Monday and asked for a correction of  the item, whiih appealed in our  columns last S .luiday with refeience  to the watchchain received by Mayor  Kilpatrick. Mr. Giuliani (nought, the  chain to Revelstoke but the gift to the  mayor was really made by W. II.  Vickers. In chatting with Mr. Graham he said that he expected that the  hydraulic machinery, which was  installed last season, though loo lale  for any results, would make a good  shewing for Atlin in 1001. The camp is  an" hydraulic {camp and only aliout  four men have so far really made any  stake lo talk of by placer digging. Two  of them made as much as $4*1.000  apiece and another about $35,000.  Tliere is a scattered population in the  camp of about one thousand people.  There have been as many as 3000  miners transacting business in the  one day at the recoiding office  during the rush of 1S09 and even  now 140 to 150 a day is an average  record. The climate is dry and pleasant but living is terribly high. Mr,  Graham likes the life very much, there  heingagieat deal of travelling to be  done and existence is healthy and  exhilarating if not exactly luxurious,  lie will leave to return lo his duties  on Saturday week.  THE SUPPLY LIMITED  They Knew What it Meant.  The effect on thechildien in the  public school nt'the little mining town  of Cumberland when the explosion  took place is described by llie Cumberland News as being dramatic in the  extreme. "When the leport wns  heard ev-pry sound]\vas st.ilied' on the  instant, and every child's face w.-ts  white as they all.stared with tear-filled  eyes. JIhen a. girl, looking through a  window nb the gigantic vclume of  ..-riioke, -began to sob. 'School was  dismissed - and all filed out ii. silence.  Children in a mining c-.iiup realize the  horrors of au explosion."  -A Good Suggestion. ���������  Ifwonld be policy ' I'or the' govern  menttto legislate so small towns might  incorporate as towns and villages as is  the case in Ontario. There-are many  s-tnall places that would he benefitted  hy such an- enactment.���������Cantterbury  Outcrop. _'*"'"  There is Plenty of Coal but Very Little1  of it Coking Coal.  In an interview kindly accorded  to'  a Herald man the   other  day   Supt.  Duchesnay    slated    with    regnid    to'  rumors  of  a     contemplated,   shuffle'  among the C. P. R. officials   that Mr.  W.  Downie was   certainly   to   >,o   as"  superintendent  to   Nelson   and    Mr.  Beasley to lhe coast, but that the rest  ofthe  report as   far   as   himself  and  Mr.   Maipo'.e   was  entirely    without'  foundation.     There   had   been   some'  ground for the rumor, wKi'-h   was put'  forth some time ago that he was to go  lo Cuba inasmuch  as hei had actually  had 1111 offer to go there,   but this last  rumor wns absolutely without  found-  ition.   Speaking of the proposed  line'  line   from    the    Great   Northern   to'  Michel cm the   Crew, for   which   Mr.  Hill is asking a charter,  Mr. Duches-,  nay   said   that  on   Jan. 1',   1901.   the'  capacity of the coke ovens at   Fernit/  was 3,000 tons short of  the   monthly  demands of the Kootenay smelte'rsand'  the C. P. R. were   hauling  coal   from  Vancouver    and    right   past  Fernie_  itself  froni   Lethbridge   to   keep   the'  supply in Kootenay up to the demand.  It is all very well to. talk  of unlimited -  supplies of coal in Alberta and British,  Columbia and the necessity of getting'  nn opening for it into   Montana, but.  there is coal and coal and   verv   little  of it is'cokinft coal.    He thinks"that it.  ���������will be a  sorry  day  for   th'e   British,   '  Columbia'    mining . .and      smelting  interests, if Mr. Hill.gains full .control--  of this one source of supply of coking,  coal, the  possession   of, which,.gives]  Kootenay such.enoi inoiis advantages-'  for^building  up" a smelting   induslry   .  over   the   rival   mining Lc-6uiiLiies   o'r  Montana.   Washington     nnd    Idaho.    \  The American   Smelling   & .Refining..;  Co., which/now controls Ihe^ smelting,  industry in" the States; cannot but 'be'- '  hostile   to   the' bui.lding     up   ".of    a"  competing smelting industry iri British <  Coliinilii-i and if tbey   get, contiol-of- '-  lhe only source  of   supply   of 'coking, '  coal ciii .the mainland, they would with-'"'  out doubt use their advantage' to   kill'  out the Canadian smelters^j   --    '*   *  Bro:  heim have given out a statement~to  the press regarding the merging of  their large smelting interests with the  American Smelting & Refining Company... The statement expatiates upon  the advantages which will accrue to  tbe miners from the establishmert of  this enormous monopoly, and contains  the. following significant stateuient:���������  "The American Smelting Company  now contiols the silver output of South  America, Central America, BRITISH  COLUMBIA. Mexico and the United  States, which is nearly SO per cent of  the output of lhe world,"  Is it fact? And, if it is. why  should it be so, and, still more, why  should it be allowed to remain so ?  Theso are questions which every British Columbian should earnestly consider.  That this assertion has a solid substratum of truth is shown by the fact  that the refusal of the American  Smelter trust to purchase our silver-  lead ores just now has caused consider  able, if only a temporary, embarrassment to the Slocan-mines. Still, it is  equally evident that the big trust has  not yet got that contiol over our silver  lead industry which Ihey claim, which  Ihey undoubtedly covet, and which  they equally undoubtedly ��������� are now  seeking to obtain. It is not necessary  here to dilate upon the reasons why  lhe prosperity of British Columbia  should not be dependent upon the  whims of an alien corporation. Com-,  mon sense business considerations and  patriotic sentiment both supply the  obvious answer. The Canadian mining  industry must not be at the tnerchy of  American smelters, and to ensure that  we must-have Canadian smellers capable of handling all. or'nearly all. the  output of ihe Canadian mines. These  smelters have a terrible opponent in  the hist American trust if ever the  latter should decide upon a fight, and,  J to have any chance of success, they  ��������� pitut l-i.-iv", and are entitled tn have.

F.. Maclean is a younger member of .the Conservative party who is  rapidly coming to the front. He has  never been hound down by party ties  and although loyal to Conservative  principles has manifested a sturdy  independence that augurs well for his  future career. He is the author of  the new national platform, printed  and promulgated hy the Toronto  World in which many progressive���������  almost radical���������ideas are embodied.  In the very first days of the present  session he brought himself into public prominence by advocating what  was practically government ownership of railways. It is a hopeful  sign for the Conservative party that'  ft can countajMr. McLean among its  adherents. He is symbolic of a  young robust and independent Conservatism that is rapidly talcing root  in the countrv.  Toronto Telegram- Quebec Conservatives, with seven members, two  of whom are whips, seem to be duplicating the makeup of that Kentucky regiment which was al! colonels  and no privates    c  It is difficult to understand why in  this age of tolerance the oath of  oSce required to be taken hy the  British sovereign should be allowed  to remain as offensive, ns it undoubtedly is, to Roman  Catholics.-  It is to be taken for granted that  Sir Wilfrid Laurier has given up any  designs he may aforetime have  had upon the life of the senate.

Maclean,  a prominent member of the party,  is urging upon the government the  necessity of purchasing in thc open  market sufficient shares in the C. P.  Tt. and G. T. R. to give the government of Canada a controlling interest  in both these companies. He urges  that this step is necessary in order  to prevent a great American combine from getting a hold on the Canadian  railroads.  The recent dreadful disaster-in-.i  coal mine on Vancouver Island reveals the dreadful straits in which  the miners are placed when anything  happens to the main shaft of a  mine. Coal mining In most instances  is a very profitable industry and the  present disaster opens the question  as to whether it would not be better  to have legislation enacted providing  for more than one channel of entrance and exit in each large mine.  Hon. Mr. Charlton Is a stalwart  Liberal of the old 6chool. When XV.  V. Maclean brought up the railway  question in the Dominion house and  asserted that the interests of the  people of Canada were menaced by  an American combine that wns endeavoring to acquire controlling Interest in Canadian roads. Sir Wilfrid  Laurier and his colleagues seemed Inclined to treat the matter lightly, but  Mr. Charlton rose ln his place and  urged the matter upon the Immediate  attention  of  the government.  These are the days of clianne and  upheaval in the railway world. Some  of the most important railway lines  have amalgamated. The Manitoba government has taken over the Northern  Pacific, lines in that province. There  is talk of a branch of the Great Northern extending into Canada and there  i.s a general upheaval nil alonz the  line. Despite it all however the railroad comrjanies appear to be coiling  a pretty good rake ntr out of thn  deals just the same and after ail that  is  the chief  thing they are  after.  One need not. look for chances of  -world-wide, importance to follow the  accession of a new ruler in Great  Britain, fur the Dower of tho British  sovereign is. aftp" all. closely circumscribed. Though in theory, for example, the sovereign may veto an act  of parliament, in practice t.he privilege is not allowed. - No English kins  or aueen. In fact, has exercised tho  power since Queen Anne votoe:! -i  bill in 170"���������almost two hundrnd  3'ears ago. It is worth whilo to contrast thi- -with thp practice and  power of American chief execu  Although Washington, indeed  ed only two bills, and Lincoln three  Grant vetoed fortv-three. and Cleveland, in his flrat term alone, vetoed  three hundred and one.���������  The Life Guards in Their Splendid Uni  forms Escort the King to Parliament  The Royal Robes. All the Pagentry  of Feudal Times.  The chariot ot Georgo III. and thc  King's robe were the chief features  of the pageant and tableau, and each  lent color to what otherwise would  Have been a sombre spectacle, says  the Globe's London correspondent.  The gorgeous car of state had boen  regllded without and relined within  withred silk ,and thc braces, held by  gilt buckles, had been stiffened, so  that the occupants were protected  against a swaying motion, and the  spectators were not reminded o������ the  fate of Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes'  one horse shay. Towering high  above the. bearskins of the soldiers  lining thc route from Buckingham  Palace to Westminster, it could be  seen from Uie outer edge of the  crowds in tho Mall and in the Whitehall, and there was-a hoarse roar of  applause from thousands of throats  .as it" passed.-���������  The symbolism of the huge palm  trees branching out to support thn  roof was not well suited to war timo.  hut the lions' heads at the corners of  the crown, upheld by three gilded  youths, armed with sceptre, sword  and insignia ot knighthood, aud the  four Tritons, underneath blowing  conches with puffed cheeks, and representing Britannia as ruler of the  waves, were more appropriate. The  royal chariot was well horsed with  cream colored Hanoverians and  purple and gold' harness trappings.  The scarlet liveries ' of postillions,  footmen and the driver were most  gorgeous. The man in scarlet holding  the reins from the seat covered with  hammer-cloth ornamented with gold  bullion was so impresive that the  glory of royalty within the coach was  well nigh eclipsed.  The cavalcade was headed Dy an  escort of Life Guards, riding slow  through lines of 5,000 Foot Guards.  Four royal carriages, drawn by  horses, and cno behind by pslendid  blacks, fo'.owed the escort with a  score of court functionaries. The  King, the Q'lenn tint; Princess Victoria came next in the heaviiy g:ided |  chariot, and a file of Yeomen of the  Guard in quaint mediaeval uniform  was behind with a few cavalrymen.  Half an hour was occupied in thc passage from tho palace to Victoria  Tower, and the King and Queen were  cheered all along the lino -with great  heartiness. Thero were few decorations and few episodes, the, arrival of  Strathcona's Horse in three waggons  at Buckingham Palace' while " the  bands were playing "Marching to  Pretoria" being the. roost Interesting  one.,  " The King was received at Victoria  Tower by the groat officers of State  and conducted to the robing room,  where his gorgeous parliamentary robe  of crimson velvet, lined with ermine,  was put on. The Queen -was also  arrayed in a rich robe lined with ermine, and looked pale, but ��������� handsome. The procession, headed bv  Pursuivants, Heralds. Equerics and  Grooms, passed through the long corridor under the eyes of prvileged'spec-  tntors. ancl with all the regalia used  on such occasions, ��������� including thc  crown, the sword and tho cap of  maintenance, swept into thc house of  lords, whore three hundred neeress"S  awaited it.  The tableau had not beer, rehearsed  and the earl marshall feared that  somebody might get inlo a wrong  place and violate the traditions cf tho  college of Heralds, but the King and  Queen took their throne chairs as  naturally as though they had always  -been=in-them.-but-the-Lord-Privv-S������al-  and Lord Chancellor stood at right  and left, and a group of 30 or"-10  court officials In uniforms and full  dress was formed. A dozen o.- more  members of the royal family were  already in places on either side or  the throne, and the house was filled  with peeresses In back evening  dress, peers in scarlet robes, nmbas-  sadors in full uniform, judges In  wigs and gowns, and a few privileged  spectators. The scene was stately  and sombre owing to the prevailing  tone of black, and it was not until  the royal robes were seen and the  tableau of court functionaries was  formed that there waa really a brilliant effect.  Black Rod brought in the Sneaker  with 50 or more commoners, looking  red-faced and out of temper from tho  disorderly scenes in the corridor, and  the King's speech was read In a  clear voice with commanding dignity. No forecast or it had been  published, but it contained no surprises. Reference to the death of  the Queen, the war In South Africa,  the China settlement, thc Duko of  Cornwall's visit to Australia and  Canada, the rebellion In Ashanti and  the Indian drouth folowed one another naturally enough, ancl the expected declaration of placing the  hereditary revenues of the crown at  the disposal of the parliament in return for a civil list was made. Tho  legislative programme outlined for  the session was meagre and without  interest.  When the speech ended the commons retired, the earl marshall set  tho Pursuivants, Heralds, Yeomin of  the Guard and others in motion, and  the royalties and officials were conducted in state to Victoria Tower for  a second triumphal progress through  Whitehall anil the Mall.

At 10.30 the rescue  crew and managers came from Victoria and another attempt was made  to rescue the men. We turnod two  heavy streams of water into number  flve shaft, and stopped the fan with  the hope of forcing the air into number six, expecting to be able to follow the air in and rescue the men.  We were unable to restore the ventilation, however, owing to the large  quantity of gas in the mine.

The Cumberland mine'"is one  of the properties of the Union, Colliery company, situated near Comox.  and reached from Union Bay by the  private colliery railway crossing the  Trent river, on which the memorable  bridge disaster occurred a Year or  twt������ ago.  It haa been singularly' fortunate  heretofore in immunity from disaster  and was counted an esrjecially safe  mine to work tn by reason of the  character of the formation in which  the coal is found there, and the manner tn which it. had been opened up.  No. six shaft the scene ofthe disaster, was bottomed in October, 189S,  at a depth of S14 feet. It is well  constructed and timbered with a  midway, the pit bottom being timbered with 12 by "18 sawn hulks built  solidly together. 16. feel widn and 12  feet high. The shaft is located close  to thc railway, and tho ventilation of  mine is effected by a 14 by five foot  gtilbal fan which when run to its  full capacity gives 85.000 cubic feet  of air- circulation per minute. The  air enters by the haulage slopes and  is divided into separate splits, the  main split being at tho point where  number two branches off the main  slope, part of the air going clown  each slope. Further down east of  these slopes tho air is again split and  sent to the workings east and west  in the respective slopes.  Vancouver, Feb. 17.���������The torribie  accident at' Union mines, Vancouver  island, which has plunged tne town  of Cumberland - and the rest ot the  province Into mourning continues to  engross public attention. The greatest excitement prevails at Cumwr-  land aud ever, ut the larger town of  Nanaimo, 60 miles distant rrom the  scene of the catastrophe, the telegrapn  and newspaper offices are besieged Dy  anxious citizens eager for details or  the  disaster.  The Canadian Pacific railway, company's steamer arrived at Vancouver  this afternoon from the coaiing station of Union. 12 miles from Cumoe;--  land She Brought two passengers.  H. Raymond and Geo. Bennett, botr*.  coal miners. Neither had an7  theory as to the cause of the explosion  in So. ti shaft, in which the accident ocurred. They say the cause  is not Known, and  never will  oc. -...   When the Tartar left Union at 7  o'clock this morning the latest news  from Xo. S shaft was that the Hooq-  ing process wa.s still being contlnueo.  The tire was still burning althoutm  not so fiercely as during the preceeo-  ing 36 hours. The volume of water  pouring into the mine-from the continuous supply furnished by an eight-  inch main was gradually performing  the desired service and by tomorrow  it is confidently- expected that tn*:  flre  will  be    extinguished.  It will be several days, Mr. Raymond says, before thi bodies of Bi  entombed miners' can be recovererc.  because after the flre has heen oom-  pletely put out' It will he ncccuaarr  to pump the water out of the mine  before a rescuing . party cau hope  to remove the boclieii now lying at  the bottom  of  the  shaft.  Shortly liefore the Tartar sailed  from Union, the 3teamer Joan arrived  having on board Premier Jas. Duna-  muir of the British Columbia ao*--  ernment, who is also principal owner  of the Cumberland mines. After leaving Vancouver on the Joan on Saturday afternoon Mr. Dunsmuir 'called at Nanaimo and started off from  Nanaimo for Union last night, but a  heavy sea swept the gtiif and as r.h'i  wind rose a blinding snow storm  made navigation ilifTiculf. and the  Joan was finally compelled to return  to Nanaimo at midnight, making a  fresh start for Union before, daybreak.  Tho families of tho dead miners  require financial assistance which will  be forthcoming from more than one  source. The mayor of Vancouver has  already taken steps to aid tho bereaved families and other cities are  taking similar action. In the meantime Premier Dunsmuir has ordered  t.he storekeepers at Cumberland to  glye the distressed families whatever supplies they may need.  Vancouver. B. C.

(Continued From Last Issue.)  connected with   which   waa the    attempted assassinatoin of the Duke of  Edinburgh at Sydney.      In    1868. on  June 25,  when  the    Luther     monument was inaugurated at Worms,  it  is worth while at the present juncture  Eo notice   what prudent   words   Her  Majesty-uttered.  Queen Victoria forwarded tho following message to the  King of Prussia:      "Pray express to  the  committee    for  the    erection  of  thc Luther memorial my most hearty  congratulations upon    the   successful  completion of their task.     Protestant  England  cordially sympathises    with  an occasion which unites the Protestant princes    and    peoples  ot    Germany."     So watchful was she always  of the passage of affairs, and so wise  to perceive and understand the fundamental reasons which   bind certain  nations  together,  and  which   at this  day keep, or ought to keep, Germany  and England natural friends. In 1869  the chlef;event of the year was perhaps the   opening of the Suez canal,  which hy the mere digging of a sea  ditch,    revolutionized    geography, remodelled  European   politics,  and   rebuilt half    our    mercantile    marine^  Lord Beaconsfleld  still, at that date,  known    as    Mr.    Disraeli,    published  "Lothair."     In 1870 the war between  Germany and France broke out, tha  Emperor, Louis Napoleon, leaving for  the Held on July 28. Everyone knows  what terrible    battles ��������� followed, and  how the map and  dynastic plans of  Europe took new shape from the immense results of Sedan    and of   tne  revolution in Paris.     The Queen extended  generous hospitality    to    the  fugitive Empress, who has eevr since  remained her    grateful    and    tender  friend.     But the busy world went on  with  all  sorts of    movements    apart  from   politics.      The    Mount     Cents  tunnel was opened, piercing the Alps;  Charles Dickens died; Mr. Forster introduced his great bill for public education; the Red river exuedltion tool;  place; ' and  Gambetta' passed    out of  " Paris, in a balloon.      The year 1S71  was  clouded   by  the    Illness  of    tlie  Prince of-Wales, his    happy recovery  from which affliction and the Joy of  the public and of the Queen are com-  mmorated  in the  well  known    letter  in which Her Majesty    thanked    tlie  nation for Its alfection and sympathy.  The thanksgiving day   was    brilliant  antl wonderful.     All London rejoiced:  Thc year 1872 may  be remembered  for the sad death, under the knife o"  an  Andaman convict,' of Lord Mayo,  for the interminable Tichborne    case,  for Mr. Lowe's ill stared budget, and  the opening of new.public interest In  Africa,   through  the   lectures   of   Mr.  Stanley,      recently      returned     from  meeting  Livingstone  in  tho  wildne'r-.  ness.     Next year brought the demise  of Emperor Louis' Napoleon, and the  beginnng, ofV the - long -trial. ot    the  Tichborne claimant    in the Court of  Queen's bench.      In the'  same    year  Mr.-George    Smith,, of    the    British  museum, on behalf of the Dally Telegraph, made those wonderful excavations at Mosul, in Mesopotamia, which  gave  to  the world    or scholars    the  earliest' literature    of    Assyria.      In  1&74, Sir Garnet Wolsley ourned Kumasi,  and  in  the year following the  Prince of Wales made his memorable  visit to India.      ln 1S76 Her Majesty  again    opened parliament in    person,  the topics, of the. royal  speech being  the revolt in Bosnia, the purchase by  England of the Suez canal shares, the  safe  return   of the   Prince  of Wales  from  the east, the slave    trade, and  the   colonies.      This  year,   moreover,  He- Majesty opened the new London  hospital, and accepted from Mr. Disraeli and parliament the new title of  Empress.     Very soon afterwards Mr.  Disraeli himself became Earl or'Beaconsfleld. The year J 877 opened with  the" brilliant ceremony of tho "proclamation    of .Queen   'as    Empress    at  , Delhi, and the novel .sight was elsewhere seen, of a Turkish' parliament  ''-sitting ln.Constantinople.     Then the  fierce war broke out between Turkey  and Russia, the   Tsar^s. army passing  - the -Danube.. June.. 27, -1877.  Phrvna  antf the Shipka Pass ensued, and  at  this   time,   far   away   In  Africa,   Mr.  Stanley was pursuing his triumphant  journey down the Congo, revealing to  tho light of day for the world and in  our service the mysteries of the dark  continent.      In  1878    Lord Salisbury  and    Lord      Beaconsflld- brougnt"   us  "peace with honor,"  along with the  treaty of .Berlin,-but we'had a war of  our own with the Zulus; from which  the- names    of   Isandlwana,    Rorke's  Drift,     and.    Ulundi     tragicalliy    or  gloriously .emerged. '*    That    Afghan  ' war soon    followed  in  which    Lord  Roberts gained  much  fame,  and  the  close of  1878 had" been ' darkened  by  tho death of the good Princess Alice.  On June 1, 1879, Prince Louis Napoleon, fell  In an  African jungle,  killed  by the. Zulus.     The dreadful accident  of  the   Tay  bridge      marked      very  mournfully the close of 1879, and once  again public   affairs were    Important  enough  to  induce  "Her    Majesty  to  open the parliament of 1880 in state.  _The unusual .event shortly afterwards  happened  of the defeat of    a British  army at Maiwand, and Mr. Gladstone.  at the Lord Mayor's banquet, opened  the dfflcult and dangerous subject of  Ireland.  Wo have now come so far along the  winding road  of    retrospect that the  acts  and  events .which - succeeded  to  those    thus   -briefly  enumerated    lie  within    the ' memory    of    even    the  younger subjects of  the    great    and  glorious   soveregn   whose   record   has  now to be traversed with such pride  and  such sorrow. There'can. be "little  need, therefore, to recall at any length  the tragedy in the Phoenix park; the  ���������brief rule of Arabi in Egypt; General  Gordon's   mission     and     failure     at  Khartoum;  the long battle fought in  parliament and the constituencies for  the safety of the Union;  or even the  joyous  Jubilee  he'd    in   the    fiftieth  - year of  thc  Queen's  reign,  when already the glory of    tho era   seemed,  humanly speaking,    complete.     With  admirable energy our sovereign  took  her share in these celebrations.      On  July 2.J887, the Queen witnessed the  march past of 23,000 of her    volunteers;   two   days   later   she   laid   the  foundation stone of    the Imperial institute;   on  the 9th  sha reviewed tho  regulars   at  Aldershot,   HS.OOO  strong,  with 102 guns; and on the 23rd of the  same month she steamed In her royal  yacht through her magnificent fleet  at Spithead,.hoisting 135 pennants.  Of' those present at most of these  superb functions of state seven distinguished and' interesting 'figures  have passed - away���������the Emperor  Frederck. the Grand Duke .of Hesse,  the Duke of Clarence, the Duke and  Duchess of Teck, the Duke of Edinburgh,(reigning Duke of Saxe-Coburg)  and Prince Henry of Battenberg.  One little incident of the Jubilee of  1887 we may be permitted to recall,  for reasons special to the Dally  Telegraph, and because it illustrates  the tenderness of Her Majesty  towards the youngest of her subjects.  The deeteription shall be taken from  an excellent compilation entitled  "The Life and Times of Queen Victoria," by Mr. Robert Wilson. He  says in his second volume; "But of  all the Jubilee celebration, perhaps  the most charming and novel, was  one which was held in Hyde Park.  A few weeks before Jubilee day it  ocurred to Sir Edward Lawson, well  know In connection with the Daily  Telegraph, that there was a fatal  omission in the Jubilee programme.  Elbeorate arrangements had been  made to. interest all classes save one  ���������the school children of London���������the  boys and girls who must form tho  men and women of the next generation. Sir Edward contended that  this defect should be remedied, and  the whole town was Immediately  taken with the idea. Everybody  wondered that no one had put forward  the suggestion before, and Sir Edward  Lawson soon found himself honorary  treasurer of the Children's Jubilee  fund, to which he hlmBolf was one of  the most prominent subscribers.  Foolish efforts were made to check  the movement, and people were warned that it was impossible to entertain 30,000 children in Hyde Park, as  Sir Edward Lawson had proposed,  without accidents to life and limb.  It was, however, in vain that he was  denounced as the organizer of a juvenile Juggernaut. The fund was  raised with ease, and its chief promoters, by skilful organization, not  only got 27,000 children into Hyde  Park from all parts of London on  June 22, ubt sent them back unhurt  and happy to their homes. Great  ladies of fashion helped him to carry  out his arrangements. The little ones  were entertained with the sports and  shows dear to boys and girls of their  age. and the Queen not only came  out and greeted them in person, hut  she was received with a childish  delight that touched her profoundly  '"-    Priinces    and   Princesses,    and  The  the royalty, and many of the foreign  visitors, also witnessed  this    strange  passed   that  they  were   participating  in one of the highest and haughtiest���������  albeit, most paciho���������demonstrations  of the will and power of England to  keep her own peuci*. which ever was  seen ��������� and that sight has been  shown also to the world at large���������  or cau be, organized. We have all  which represents a crowning point  and a closing mark in the record of  our insular spirit and imperial self-  reliance, and, the recurring thought  of those countless pennants of her  majesty, of that potent and abounding flotilla; whether one looks back  upon the sunlit picture of our warships with royal yacht steaming wistfully and watchfully between them,  or of the vista by night of the same  great fleet lighted up, so that each  vessel seemed built, and rigged with  flame���������that recurring thought, I say,  of either or both of these matchless  seascapes will hereafter fill the mind  with ever renewed wonder and admiration, as the echo of t.he loud and  long salutes o' all those loyal and  patriotic guns seems to come back  and back again in reiterated thunder  on the ears '"  There i*> yet another picture of the  great past whicu. on this day of sorrow and yoarning national love, rises  with a sense of pride and ineffaceabl"  significance of thc thoughts.

Again I permit mypelf to  recall my individual impressions, n������  we watched the well beloved sovereign at the door of the ProtcRtan^  metronolltan cathedral. 'Twas then  that I wrote: "Snlnndldlv go by  the Scots greys, the dragoons.and the  17th lancers, and picturesque moments  these    are    while       the foreign  naval and military ataches nace along  in all their hue* of the rainbow  and then the noble and knightly  cavalcade of the Indian Imperial sor-  vice troops���������with thc Maharaiah Sir  Pertab Singh at their head, atype  of lordly Asiatic breeding: and  lastly, when���������aftor a isalaxy of carriages,' full of princesses and duchesses, has rolled into line, that striking "escort of English and foreign  princes"���������the glittering bodyguard of  the queen sweeps into -the sanded  space, a crowd, a mob of royal highnesses, proud to be. the attendants of  the mlhty British Empress, with the  Prince of Wales and tha Duko of  Cambridge leading them.

Yet,  and  will  remain  as  an  abiding  and i most of all,  aud  Inst of all, I take  deeply prized memory. But to the  anxieties of stato which bore so  heavly upon the aged queen there  alBo came sharp .and personal bereavements,   and   the   death   of   her  humble leave to remain: and to emphasize that which.
