HOW KENNEDY WAS KILLED  Slocan Mining Notes.  Nkw Dionvhu, March.20���[Special  to The Tribune]���Police officer  Black returned from the Enterprise  mine yesterday, and gives tho following particulars of the fatal accident which occurred there on  Suturcl a j':  Thomas Kennedy  was   working  in the stope between the  No. 2 and  the No. 8 tunnels, close  to  tho  big  raise.    He   had   picked  down   the  rock shot by  the  night  shift, aud  had Just commenced to drill  when  the  explosion   occurred.    The   full  force of the rock caught him ou the  left hand and in the bottom of the  l\(   .stomach  and  legs.    His  mate was  'working a short distance away, but  Hvas not hurt.    Kennedy was picked  up aud  placed on a stretcher, but  died before the mouth  of the tunnel was reached.    He spoke once or  twice before he' died.    His  injuries  ' were   ghastly.      Apart   from   the  bones broken, he was covered with  blood.    The night shift  state that  they had.fired a round  of seveu.or  nine holes,  all of  which went  off,  but it is surmised that some frozen  ". powder must have beeu lefb in one  of the holes which deceased drilled  against.  Kennedy was aged about 40 and  came to the mine from Rossland..  He was deemed the best workman  on the force and was an A 1 miner.  ��� Originally he came from St. Columbia, Quebec, where a'sister resides,  to whom word of the accident was  sent.  There is no coroner in the Slocan  , district, a fact' that should be  promptly remedied. Within the  past ten days or so there'have been  no less than four fatalities in the  camp, with no proper judicial  machinery available to arrive at  the causes of the same. <>  The force  on  the  Hartney has  7 been increased to 19 men, while the  active development  continues   encouraging.   A new bunkliouse, to  'accommodate    SO    men,    is   being  erected, ns well as a large ore house.  The company backing tho Haituoy  - is one of t3ie best in tho country.  A new lodgo has been uncovered  on the Marsh Bird, Goat mountain,  carrying, seveial   feet   of   quailst.  This contains  galena  and   iron  of  promising values.    The  ledge cuts  in LO the mountain almost due north  and south.   "  It; is the intention of the 0. P. R.  'to add to their wharfage accommodation here, as well as enlarging the  warehouse and offices.,.  Recent visitors to the Arlington,  Springer creek, state that the property is in magnificent shape at  present, with ore showing everywhere. They are credited with  having eight feet of shipping ore,  besides concentrates. A now bunk-  house has been erected during the  .whiter, where the force has been  increased to 32 men. Ore is being  taken out in large quantifier-, and  two teams  are engaged  hauling iL  ���to SloGau-Cifcy-lor-sbipmeut.   Ore is coming down freely from  the Enterprise, whoie upwards of  forty men aro employed.1 Eighty  tons have been shipped this week,  , being sent to the Itjverett smelter.  Jt is shipped in sacks and not in  bulk as formerly.  A most important mining deal is  on the verge of being consummated,  which will call for the payment of  a largo sum of money. 1t i.s for tlio  Rockland and Wiela group on  Eight-mile creek, wliich is to pass  into the hands of the Jay P. Uraves  syndicate, now operating so extensively ia tho Boundary countiy.  Judge Spinks and Frank Watson  are tho vendors. Thpy have been  developing tho properly for some  time, with splendid result?. ( The  vein on the property is very largo,  being fully 100 feet wide, carrying  gold aud copper values. AV. Y.  Williams expert for tiie buyers,  has been examining the group, and  he is highly pleased. A sample  made from the ore taken from the  first 03 feet of a crosscut ou the  ledge gavo returns of between $15  aud $17 in gold. Tiie whole party  went out on Friday, and a final  test on the rock taken will determine the sale. Williams predicts  the property will be one of the  wonders of the west.  went to consult the head officers of  tho Western Federation of Miners.  While it is not stated what decision  was arrived at, it is generally believed'that work will be resumed  on a contract basis. The one generally favored is that tho length of  holes drilled will bo measured, and  that the shooting and muckingAvill  bo done by the company. The  Miner, a paper that has not been  friendly to the miners, admits editorially that something must be  done, as many of the best miners  are leaving the camp. It says the  loss of these men to the town would  be a severe one.  MINING  A number  TRANSFERS.  of mining transfers  were recorded at the ruining recorder's office yesterday.  Katie McEvoy of Erie, transferred  a sixth interest in the Little Joe  mineral claim at the head of Beaver  cie?k to Dan Fraser. The- consideration was $50. John McEvoy of  Erie transferred a sixth interest in  the Coffee Glance on Beaver creek  to Dan Fraser, the consideration  being $50 in this case also.  Edward Peters of Nelson transferred to R. W. Bacon of Ymir a  third interest in the Birthday  claim situated on the south slope of  Round mountain, and also a quarter in the Charmer on Hall creek.    .  Iu consideration of $5 Dan Morrison transferred to Con. Robinson  seven-eights of the Ayer mineral  claim on Barrett creek.  Con. Robinson of Ymir transferred a fourth interest in the Ayer  and June claims on Barrett creek  to L. Graham, the consideration being $50.

Caldwell,  father of tho dead man, caused a  sensation by his testimony.    He declared- that iiif> sou  had  told  him  that he -was infatuated with Mrs.  Hayes    and "he*   would   have   to  get away from her to some place  where lie could not sec her.   "Later  he told me that it was all over, and  that he had explained everything.  At his suggestion I went and spoke  to Mrs. Hayes.   She told me she did  not ws.ut to leave Frank, and  that  she would never forget him."   The  jury then  returned a  verdict "that  Mrs.   Hayes   died    from   a  bullet  wound at the hands of Frank Caldwell,  and  that Dr.  Caldwell  died  from wounds inflicted by himself.

Mr. Steyn is circulating a notice by  by means of dispatch riders in  reply to my proclamation, to the  effect that auy burgher who signs a  declaration that he will not fight  against us again will be treated as  a traitor and shot.  The Bloemfontein people are  affording us .every assistance in the  matter of hospital accommodations.  We have consequently been able to  arrange for five hundred beds.  "Thirty-three prisoners were  taken at Prieska, two hundred  stands of arms aud some supplies  and explosives.  "The Boers have begun to surrender on the Basutoland frontier."  NELSON LOCAL; NEWS.  Hon.   T.   Mayne Daly,   Bernard  ^Macdonald and Edmund B. Kirby,  three well known gentlemen from  Rossland, were the victims, yesterday of the best/practical joke of the  season -  and    the    most .amusing  feature of the case  was  that they  '.perpetrated the joke on themselves.  The trio spent, 'Monday in Nelson  and left on the 6:40 train for Rossland.     At   Robson   the * outgoing  train was late and the travellers  satin the  ferry waiting for  it to  cross the river.    The conversation  must 'have beeu most engrossing  for the boat crossed to West Rob-  sou, and started back without their  knowing  anythiug  of it.    On  the  return   trip   the   captain   of   the  steamer remarked :    "You'd better  get out, gentlemen,", and when' the  steamer lauded a brakeman shouted,  "All  aboard,"   and   Messrs.   Daly,  Macdonald and Kirby rushed aboard  tho Nelson train quite assured thac  they were starting for Rossland.  Half way to Nelson the conductor  caine around to collect tickets and  the facts quickly, came out.    The  party returned to the Iiotel Phair  aud wheu the story was told it took  several small bottles to square their  Nelson friends.    -   .  The Situation at Kossland.  Judging from tho reports appearing iu the Rossland Miner, the  differences between the mine mar.r  agcis and the mine workers will be  fcefctled amicably.

The  adjournment is at tho call of the  chair to a date not later than the  mouth of April. Lucas, tho Conservative organizer, was- present  aud was asked if the decision for  party lines meant the adoption of  the platform of the Westminster  convention including tho eight-hour  law and government ownership of  railways. He replied that it did,  and this seemed to hasten the decision of the meeting to i).d.journ  without action.  Au Italian, nauxed Gillette was  fined $3 and costs by magistrate  Crease yesterday morning for neglecting to pay the city road tax.  Tile's penalty inflicted was the maximum under section 161 Municipal  Clauses Act. Gilletto's defence was  that he had no money, but his  friends dug up the funds Co settle  the fine, thereby saving him from  ten days' imprisonment. Another  sou of'sunuy Italy named Doccista  failed to respond to a summons,  aud a bench warrant was issued for  his arrest.  The performance by the Nelson  Minstrels has beeu postponed to  Friday night owing to the illness  of-several- of -the- members.

Other  residents in the same block on Carbonate street are said to be preparing to do tho same thing.  think capital punishment a legal  atrocity and a species of homicide,  incomparably more cruel than most  private murders, since it inflicts  death after a long knowledge of the  death to come has multiplied its  terrors for the victim. It is one of  the most useless pieces of wickedness left iu tho world."  STEYN REPLIES WITH LIES  PROCLAMATION IS ISSUED  ' By the Colonial Office.  London, March 21���4.25 a. m.���  While there is a lull in the military  operations, the political positions of  the war show interesting development.: The colonial office has telegraphed to Cape Town the text of  the proclamation concerning destruction of property. This will  not be published in London until  after its proclamation in South  Africa, but it is known that it will  convey an intimation that any  wanton destruction of British property during the war will be regarded as warranting a claim for  compensation and as justifying a  levy upon private property should  the resources of the Transvaal republic prove inadequate.  The fact that the proclamation is"  issued by the colonial office is regarded as an indication that the:  republics will be administered as  crown colonies. In this connection,  it is understood that the' leaders of  ��tiie opposition in parliament now  admit that no other settlement is  possible since the republics insist  upon their demand for absolute independence. In view of this the  efforts of the Liberals will be confined to seeming in the settlement  the best treatment for the Dutch  population, including secuiity  against their disonfranchisement.  It*is becoming considered ,as quite  a settled matter  that should the  The West Kootenay Brick 6c Lime  Company are commencing operations for the building season.  They will not start their kilns for  some little time yet, but have sev-  eral hundred thousand brick on  hand with which to keep builders  going in tho interim/  W. II. Dowsing has been appointed Nelson agent of tho new  Procter townsite. He states that  30 men were at work clearing the  brush off the ground, aud that a  parcel of lots will be placed on sale  by April 1st. The lots aro 25 by  IIS and range in price ' from $150  for corner lots to $75 for inside lots.  Some thirty applications to purchase have a heady been filed.  William Can nel 1 is back from a  three-months' trip to Bruce county,  Ontario, lie reports that section as  fairly prosperous.  E. It. Atherton, who was acting  postmaster at Nelson'in the days  when the poslofiicc had but one  box, and who fa now a merchant  prince of Sandon, is spending a day  or two iu the city.

At yesterday morning's police  court the charge of theft against  William Gooding was continued,  and the young fellow was* committed for trial, lie has already  pleaded guilty to forgery and  awaits sentence on that charge.  The result of the second prosecution*  war be ended, as it is now hoped,  before June, the government will  dissolve parliament and appeal to  the country on the basis of a successful South African policy. Should  tho war drag on, the dissolution  will be postponed until next spring.  In any event ono of the foremost  planks of the government platform  will be army reorganization. _  There is no further information  as lo the movements of sir Alfred  Milner. It i-? regarded as certain,  hc\\ever, that ho has gone to Bloemfontein to arrange for the temporary administration of the Free  State.  Mr. Steyn's reply to lord Roberts'  charge.-, of the misuse of the flag of  truce, is commented upon as im  pertinent and ridiculous, and lord  Roberta' course in closing a useless  discussion is commended as wise.  Indications from Natal seem to  show that general Buller's forward  movement will not be long delayed.  Thu government���has "decided"that  major-general sir Fiodeiick Car-  rington shall command the colonial  force of 5000 men, including the  2500 men Mrr Chamberlain asked  for from Austialia,, which A\ill bo  stationed on tho northern Transvaal border to prevent the Boor retreat, or an incursion into Rhodesia.  A statement comes from-Pretoria  admitting thai the Boer lcja.scn during the war exceed 7000.  No fresh news has been received  from Mafeking, but a Pretoria dispatch, dated Thursday, March 15th,  asserts thai colonel Piiuucr has not  been able to advance south of  Lcbatsi. '  It was as-crfed in the lobby thi*  evening that (he proclamation  would be ti brief document of general applied ion, prohibiting the destruction of farms houses and  other properties, as well as ��� gold  mines.

Washington, March 20. -The  senate committee on naval affairs  today agreed Lo report the bill for  a Pacific coast cable which senator  Hale \va�� authorized to draft at the  last sc-sion of the committee, and  the report was later presented to  tho senate. The bill provides for a  present cable to Honolulu, but declares a purpose to extend it in the  future to Japan and the Philippines.  A Crank's Opinion.  Bos-ion, March 20.--Tho anti-  death penalty league of Massachusetts which reque-tod an opinion  from William Dean Howells, has  received   the   following reply;   "I  To Roberts' Message.  London, March 20���7.10 p. ni.���  The following dispatch has been received at the war office from lord  Roberts, dated Bloemfontein, March  19 th : "I hiave received  the following reply to my telegram of March  11th to the presidentsof the Free  State and South African Republic:  "'Your     excellency's     telegram  reached   me  yesterday.   ,1 assure  you nothing would grieve me more  than   that   my   burghers    should  make themselves guilty of a deed  such as that laid to their charge by  you.    lam, however, glad to say  you must have been mistaken.    I  have   made   personal inquiries   of  general Delarey, who was  in  command of our burghers at the  place  mentioned by you.    He  denies entirely "that "our  burghers acted  as  stated by you; but he says that on  Saturday (the date being illegible)  the British troops, when they were  about fifty yards'from our position,  put up  their hands  as 'well as  a  white flag, whilst at the same time  your cannon bombarded the said  troops,.with  the result  that  commandant      Deber      was'...' badly  wounded.  '"Yesterday morning the head  commandant wrote in his account  of the battle as follows : 'The soldiers hoisted the white flag but were  then, fired at by the British cannons  and compelled to charge.'  " 'Perhaps it is not known to your  excellency that the same thing  happened at' Spion Kop, where.  when a portion of the troops hoisted  a white flag and put up their hands,  and whilst our burghers were busy  disarming them, another portion of  th'e troops fired on our burghers,  bub" some of the British troops were  killed. It has also been reported  that at the last battle of the Tugela,  English'cannon fired on troops who  had surrendered.  'With reference to the explosive  bullets found in Cronje's laager and  elsewhere. I can give > your excellency the assurance that such bullets were not purchased or allowed  by the government. I .have, however, no reason to doubt your excellency's statement, as I know  many of the burghers of this state  aud of the South African Republic  took a large number of Lee-Metford  rifles and dmn-dum and other bullets from the British troops.  'May T request your excellency, as  lite cable is closed to me, to make  my reply known to your government and the neutral powers by  cable. (Signed), State President.'"  __The dispatch from lord Roberts  concludes as follows*. "As the inquiry into that matter proves his  honor's allegations to be unfounded,  and as f personally saw the holding  up of hands which he denies, I have  not thought it desirable to continue  tho correspondence."  IMPORTANT LOCAL COMPANY  For Development Purposes.  Au  important   mining" development syndicate ccrmposed, practically exclusively, of local men  has  been formed in Nelson, and things  are now very nearly in shape for  incorporation, under the name of  the Imperial Development0 Syndicate.      In    fact    application   will  shortly be made to the provincial  government   for   a- charter.     The '  company is capitalized for $100j000  iu dollar shares, and the articles of  association agreed upon call for the  issue of stock at par. But three calls,  of 5 cents apiece" can be made annually.    Local men have taken  up  $00,000 worth of the stock already, ���  and applications   for oone-half of  the remainder have been received,  though it is doubtful if any  more  shares will be allotted locally.  At a meeting of the shareholders ,  yesterday the fol^ying provisional  directors wereeleeted :     J'. M. Lay,  L. L. Merrifield, and G. Frank Beer.  Mr. Brigstocke was [appointed  acting secretary.     A. II. Gracey  goes  east in a day or two on  business  connected with the new syndicate.  It was also decided to levy one cent  of the first call  of five cents per'  share. _ ��  The objects of the  company are  to take hold  of promising mining  prospects, and develop them.     Tiie  properties, if they  turn  out  well,  will then be "sold to  capitalists, or   _  floated   as   subsidiary   companies. -  The company will "be  essentially a '  development and prospecting company.           NEW  ZEALAND  PATRIOTIC  Her Offer "of Aid.  London, March 21.���Mr. Chamberlain has received the following  from the governor and commander-  in-chief of New Zealand, the carl of  Ranfurly :  "The people of New Zealand wish  to express their endorsement of the  stand taken by "the" imperial government in declining to allow the  intervention'of auy foreign power  in tho settlement with the Transvaal and tho Orange Free State, and  in declining to assent to either state  being independent.    ���  "My government assures her  majesty's government, that New  Zealand will support to the last the  mother country, in so far as it lies  iu het; power to do so, in maintaining that position which has.been  taken up, irrespective of consequences. I am desired to add that  there are large numbers of men  volunteering, who are good riders  and shots, willing to go to South  Africa for the relief of the Imperial  forces if the services of the latter  should be required elsewhere.  Situation ia China.  London. March 21. -The Shanghai correspondent to the Times  says: "Tho North China Daily  News publishes a dispatch from, a  correspondent /in the ' province "of  Shan Tung, who says, that while  the Chinese government has not  taken active measures to suppress  the anti-foreign movement, governor Vucan has warned tho missionaries that the local authorities cannot be held responsible for the  safety of those travelling unescorted info the interior. The position,of tho native Christians is deplored, and, the anti-foreign movement continuing ignored and unchecked, serious consequences are  inevitable.  Natal Array Did It.  London, March 21. ��� Winston  Churchill, in a dispatch dated Piet-  oimarit/.burg, warmly resists' the  contention that the relief of Ladysmith arose out of lord Roberts'  operations. "On the contrary," he  s-ays, "the operations of lord Roberts were assisted by the fact that  general Buller kept J(>,00() Boers  occupied. It would be cruel and  unworthy to deprive the Natal  army of their hard won laurels,  and none would more vigorously  repudiate such a suggestion than  lord Roberts himself."  Johannesburg Mines Untouched.  London, March 21.���The correspondent of the Daily News at  Bloemfontein, tclegrapjii ng_ _Mpu^_  day, March 19th, says: "I learn  from Johannesburg that it is not  true that the mines have been  flooded or otherwise damaged, beyond the fact that the machinery  i�� suffering from disuse. My informant declares that the whale  story was fabricated to court sympathy.  Free Staters Had Enough.  London, March 21. -A dispatch  to the Daily Mail from Onkeispoort,  dated Monday, March 10th, says:  "A reconnaissance toward Philip-  popolis, 17 miles north of Springfontein, found the farms all fij'ing  white flags. The Biitish troops  wore cordially received. - It is reported that Mr. Steyn is trying to  rally the Boers, but the latter say  that they have had enough fighting."  Wilkinson's Opinions.  London, March 21.���Spencer  Wilkinson, writing iu the Morning  Post, justifies Winston Churchill's'  argument respecting the relief of  Ladysmith. He thinks that* sir  Alfred Milner has gone to Bloemfontein to arrange for the permanent admiuistration of the province,  and perhaps to decide about tho  captured or surrendered rebels.

ABERDEEN BLOCK  Don't Smoke a Cheap Pipe  See  THURMAN, Tobacconist.  .   ��Jt�� ��ribwte*  The   Conservatives   of   Victoria  are having a warm time over the  question   of   the    introduction   of  party   lines.      Ou  the   Avhole  the  faction which is ojjposed to the innovation appears to have the best  end of the argument and it is not  unlikely that a split will develop.  On tho last successful ticket in the  capital there were three Conservatives aud ono Liberal, and the present outlook is that on tho next one  there will be two  representatives  of   each   of   the   federal   political  parties.    McPhillips, who made one  of Harry Ilelmckon's-big four,'-is  iiovf quarreling with his Conservative colleagues, and accuses them of  having packed a convention in order  -to defeat the resolution in favor of  the   introduction   of   party   lines.  McPhillips threatens -.to make the  race as a straight party-line Cou-  servatiue in the event of die party  refusing to recognize party lines.  'Already there are, many evidences of revolt agaiust the at-  _ tempts of the Vancouver Liberals  to pledge the Liberal party to  premier Martin, and if these are persisted in, those who are in the plot  will effect tho complete disorganization of the Liberals of the province.  There are three or four reasons, any  oue of which would in itself be  sufficient to restrain the Liberals  from taking up the challenge of the  Conservatives.     The most   cogent  _�� of these is the fact thafc-the Liberal"  party does not relish premier Martin as a leader: the rank and file of  the party has no confidence in him,  :, and a victory under his leadership  would but work the beginning of  trouble. Again, it may well be  doubted if on an even break the  Liberals could hope for success in a  struggle 'with the Conservatives.  With Martin in the field, drawing  a certain amount of their strength,  thoy would have no chance whatever. It is well known that the  Liberal party's hold upon the West  !      has been weakened.    In view of this  J      the  party managers ,will  avoid a  '��� conflict. They will naturally avoid  taking a position which would  probably icsiiltin publishing to tho  I entire Dominion that their party  has been routed from Ontario to  the Pacific Coast. This is what-a1  Conservative .victory in this, province would be taken to mean after  premier   Macdonald's    victory  1     Manitoba.  ni  Thr result of the interview wliich  the labor delegation had with  premier Laurier, on Monday, can  scarcely be legarded with much  satisfaction by the labor party. The I  great aim of the delegation was to I forcemeat of the eight-hour law for  secure the amendment and enforce- J men working underground; font it J  ment of the Alien Labor Act, but  in reply to their request the premier  stated that there was a tacit understanding   between   the  Dominion  and United States governments for  the shelving of such legislation as  between the two countries.    This  being so it is idle to hope for the  enforcement of the present Act, but  even the agreement mentioned does  not prevent the labor party from  securing such redress as they most  desire.   They have not so much to  fear from the importation of American citizens under contract, as they  have from  the importation   from  the United States into the Dominion  of aliens who happen to be in  ���the United States-, but who are not  citizens.   It is the illiterate, non-  English speaking class which it is  most desired to exclude, and while  au agreement may exist for   the,  non-enforcement of alien labor laws  against    citizens   of    the" United  States, or British subjects resident  in Canada, such would not prevent  the    enforcement    of  such    lawsr  against aliens who happenedfto reside in the United States, but who  are   not    United   States    citizens.  British Columbia has too much at  stake to allow this matter to drop  upon the first suggestion of difficulties.       The British Columbia Review, of  London, England, a mining journal  that has esjioused the cause of the  mine managers, says that the ostensible reason for closing down the  Hall Mines,, Limited,_propcrties at  Nelson " was the scarcity of labor  " in British Columbia since the  " passage of the eight-hour law ;  " but that the real reason is that  " the mine has been gutted of every  " available pound of ore." The Review itr wrong. The Hall Mines,  Limited, was closed down because  itJiad been badly managed from  the start, It was in charge of hi experienced men at both the London  and the "Nelson ends of the line.  Had the company been well managed, ib would have paid regular  dividends; and were work to be resumed today under the management of experienced meu, the property would pay. The Hall Mines,  Limited, like every mine iu British  Columbia floated in the old country, is over-capitalized. Had the  Hall Mines, Limited, been floated  for $300,000 and been well managed its shares would today be  worth a premium aud its shareholders" would be in the receipt of  monthly dividends as regularly as  the months would roll round. And it  is nob yet too late to bring about  this result. The mining industry  in this province is not affected to  any appreciable extent by the en-  Clever Esquimaux Dogs.  "Talk about dogs," said  the old  Alaska  miner, "why, these  curs of  high aud  low degree  in the East  are not in it when compared  with  the   Alaska   mamaloot.      'Musha'  him and a broad smile spreads over  Jiis face, while his tail curls majestically over his back, and with head  and   ears    erect,   every    step   he  takes is a poem  in  Arctic  snows.  "From puppyhood up he takes to  harness like a  duck to water.    He  goes at it with a vim and vigor characteristic of his ancestors.    Rig the  pup  iu  any old harness,  and  it's  amusing to see how good-naturedly  he buckles down to business,  staying with it like an old stager, never  tiring,   never  feelings discouraged.  One. becomes very much attached to  these exceedingly useful and companionable animals, and  they   always   improve    on   acquaintance.  The longer you know them the better   you like them.     With white  meu they are at first disposed to be  a   little   shy,   but they gradually  make   advances,    and    ultimately  take the visitors into full confidence.  ''When we pitched our tents on  Nome beach last summer we had a  little experience with huskies from  the Esquimaux huts.   In  our absence   from the tents   these dogs  were inclined to take liberties with  our provisions, but  they did  it iu  such a scientific  manner that  we  felt more amused than outraged.  The dogs would form a skirmish  line on the outside, and then send  their   most  skilled  thief into the  tent to reconnoitre for meat and  bread.      If this  thief failed  they  would send another, aud if he was  successful they would divide the  plunder in  as  an  intelligent   and  equitable a manner as dog thieves  were capable of doing.   These dogs  were honest Injuns at home,  but  they would pilfer from the stranger.  Wheu    they   became   better    acquainted with  us  we  could  leave  the  mess   chests   open   and   they  would never touch anything ; they  were on their dog honor, and never  violated   it,   only   accepting   food  when it was offered to them.  "I'm led to these remarks," said  the old miner, "from-seeing men  and boys on the streots endeavoring to break all manner of domestic  dogs to harness. They can't do it;  it's utterly impossible,"because the  poor brutes were not born r that'  way. The Newfoundlands or St.  Bernards dont appear to have any  interest in their new calling, and  they show it in their downcast tails  and dejected countenances. You  must ��� remember that dogs have  very expressive faces, and show  their feelings in a very remarkable  degree; they are the only animals  that Jaugh and cry. They have  shared my joys and sorrows "in the  bleak Arctic, and this is why I hav3  tender heart for dogs."  00 .00. fi*.fi*.

A cottage built of wood, treated  by the new fire-proofing  process,  AViis  towed out' on  a  barge  froin  New York city recently, a. steamer  following, which carried a party of  government engineers, lumbermen  aud  others, including  mayor Pro-  fontaino of Montre.il,   Mr.   James  Scott, president   of_the   Georgian.  _Bay"Lumber"CompaiTy, and several  other Cauadians.   A heap of shavings and kindling wood, over which  several  gallons    of coal   oil were  poured, wa1? lighted>nnder the cottage, a similar heap of inflammable  material being placed iu one of the  rooms and also lighted.   The /lames  wrapped the whole cottage, pouring  out of tiie windows, iu which the  glasfci melted in  the, intense heat.  .For nearly two hours tho fire burned, and at the end of that time the  cottage stood intact.    The test was  a   most  severe   one," and demonstrated fully the success of the fire-  proofing pvpeehH, which consists of  the removal of the natural juices of  the   wood,    and   the   application  of chemical   preparations to   the  emptied and cleansed cells and interstices, both steam aud electrical  treatment    being   used.      A    test  similar to tho one made at New  York has been made at London, at  which   Lhe   prince of Wales   was  prc-cnt.    Wood thus fi reproofed is  used i'or the woodwork on warships  being built by thcUritish,  United  States, French and Russian governments.    If the process can be rendered    sufficiently    cheap    to   be  brought into general  use,  it  will  bolve a great problem, as wood is  the natural building material of the  world.

This is  ii matter much to be regretted and  we all hope that the unfortunate  . Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. 0., and Dawson City, N. W. T.  conditions now prevailing will soon  be changed for the better. They  could hardly be worse for the pur-  poso of encouraging iuvestors. I  had myself in the neighborhood of  $SOO,000 as good as invested only  for the eight-hour law with which  J am most favorably impressed, but  not at tho present early stage of  development. We are not old  enough nor rich enough to necessitate or submit to so much compulsory leisure as 10 hours out of  24.    Yours truly,  O. A. Sutherland, Sec'y.   Board of Trade.  Both Had Been Out.  Washington Ironing Slur.  "The   revenue    cutters    of   the  United States, as you may know,"  said an officer of one of them   who  likes his  little joke, "confine their  services, which  are  really  invaluable   to   the   government,  to  the  coast, and it is a rare thing  indeed  for any one of them except those of  the Behring Sea patrol  to  venture  any distance  out  to  sea.     Nor is  this rule an unsatisfactory one, for  stiy  what you  please about it, sea  service     is      not      as      pleasant  as      the     novelists     and      other  romancers would have you beIieArc.  Indeed,   the    sailor    who  "prefers  the bounding billows, a  wret sheet  and a flowing sea  and  all the rest  of it to a calm  and  peaceful  shore  snap is  the  exception.    But I am  getting off my story, which applies  to the cutter Grant, wheu  she was  doing duty in Ncav York Bay and  vicinity.   Something had happened  to   call   her   out  down  the  shore  somewhere,  and she  left the bay  one afternoon, aud early the  next  morning   while   she   was   bowling  along at about seven knots an hour  she hailed a big four-master.  '"What ship is that ?' " came from  the Grant.  "'The   Royal   Bengal Tiger, 243  days out from  Calcutta, '��� came the  reply.    'What ship is that ?'  " 'Revenue cutter Grant,' was the  plaintive answer1, 'and we've been  out all night.'"  �� Mail Train Wrecked.  Montgomery,- Alabama, March  19.���The fast mail on the Plant  system which left here last night  ���was wrecked near Ozaka resulting  iu the injury of a number of passengers. William Kellar, a commercial traveller from Savannah, is  dying as a result of his injuries.  Two coaches and two sleepers rolled  down an embankment, throwing  the passengers in all directions.  ��� *fc ��� ���**. ���'ST- *����. -^KT��� 'o*.  :^;<^,.^:^k.>K.'*^b.>tok.>fc,.       ��� 00 - 00- 00 ��� 00- 00 ��� 00- **��� **��� 0* ��� 00- 00 ��� 00- 00 ��� 00- 00 - 00 2*.^  Hi  Hi  Hi  WILL   OPEN   THEIR  Wholesale  Houses  NELSON  B.C.

The rowing season has been heralded by the appearance on the  lake of a Nelson Rowing Club  four, which has been practising  regularly for the past two or .three I  days.  A gang of men were at work  yesterday installing an automatic  gas governor at the corner of  cStanley and Carbonate streets.  At this point the level is 110 feet  above that at the gas works, and  the fact that gas increases in pressure with every foot of altitude  renders precautions to regulate the  pressure necessary. This is done  by the governor, an ingenious  mechanical contrivance wliich reduces the pressure from 2.2 inches  to 1 inch. Were this not done the  heavy pressure would drive the  gas through every burner" on the  hill much faster than would be  compatible with economy.  The system of measuring wood  by a municipal official as recently  approved by the city council has  met with popular favor. Weigh-'  master Jackson has had numerous  applications from dealers and citizens, and it seems probable that  the system will soon be in as general use as that of weighing coal.  In fact some citizens have already  refused to accept delivery of wood  unless the teamster has produced a  certificate of measurement.  S. S. Taylor, Q. C, has been retained for the prosecution in Re-  gina vs. Sanderson, aud Regina vs.  Clayboru, the defendants in both  cases having retained Galliher. <fe  Wilson to defend them. Tbe trials  are set dowiv for April 3rd. ,  Tiie Spokane trains are now running on schedule time. The warm  weather of theT past ten day? has  dried up the cuts where mud slides  had disorganized the system.  Louis Lovesque and wife, nee  Miss M. Madden, who have been  visiting iu tho city for a few days,  left yesterday for Robson where  they'will reside. Mr. Lcvesque is  proprietor,of the Robson hotel,  Shipments of ore from the Molly  Gibson mine have been temporarily  suspended owing to a slide which  has blocked up the wagon, road  about a mile from the lake. Three  hundred ,tons of ore' ready sacked  have been brought down as far as  the obstruction, and will be shipped  as soon as it can be got through. R.  McGnire, the superintendent, reports that the mine is in splendid  shape and never looked better.  About 35 men aro employed, inclus-  i ve of those en gaged in hauling the  ore.~~  William P.
