Fire at Telephone Office.  The building in which the Kootonay Lake telephone exchange and  the C. P. R. telegraph office are  located,    narrowly    escaped    destruction yesterday afternoon.    The  premises, particularly the telephone  ollice, were badly scorched, and the  telephone service  was  put  out  of  action for a day of two.    The origin  of the fire was located a short distance   up   Stanley  street where a  telephone wire crossed a live street  ear   wire-and diverted the heavy  current.    The electricity came into  the  telephone office over the" big  cable' whicli   enters   the   building  through   the   second   story.     The  switchboard      was       immediately  burned " out,   and one of the girls  received a lively shock.    They immediately   gave the alarm and  a  telegraph messenger ran for the fire  hall, which could not, of course, be  reached by 'phone.    Meanwhile one  of the telephone men came  in  and  attempted to smother the little jet  of   flame near the  ceiling   of the  switch room with a piece  of sacking.    A citizen who  rushed  in  seemed a can of water and was about  to throw the contents  on  the  fire,  but was prevented from doing so.  The heavy current flowing in over  the   cable got in  its  work in  the  garret,^ however,   and    while   the  spectators were engaged with the  tiny blaze  downstairs,  one of the  front windows in the second  story  blow out, pouring  out a  cloud of  black smoke.   The fire department  made excellent  time, and a  couple  of streams of- water were quickly  turned on'to the fire.    This proved  effective, aud in about fifteen minutes the   danger   was   over.    The  damage to tbe telephone  office will  ~be rather heavy, the switchboard  having been badly burned.     The  system will~be.;tied .up "for a-dajr'or*  two while the   repairs  are   being  made.     The   telegraph    company  loses nothing but a quantity of stationery spoiled by water.    When  the   trouble began   the .operators  "cut out their instruments, thus saving them from injury.   The building,' which  is  owned byj Mara  &  Barnard, was  damaged to  the  extent of about $150.  Will All Decorate.  The business men of Nelson, with  their usual promptitude, have decided to decorate their business places  thoroughly during the coming celebration. W. F. Teetzel, chairman  of the decoration committee, saw  many of them yesterday, and the  following firms have all ready announced their intention of putting  up suitable decorations: Spokane  JSTorJ/hernjr^]e|*-raph ^Company,Sr-  ^ih^cvTCoTT-TeetzeFiSrCarTremont  Hotel, Kerr & Co., Lawrence Hardware Co., Hudson's Bay Co., Bell <fc  Co., Silver King Hotel, P.

After lying beneath a  snowslide for at least eight weeks,  the remains of Eric Ericson and  Peter Foss have been recovered.  The two miners lost their lives in  April last at Bear creek, in the  Lardo-Duncan country. They built  their cabin last fall at the foot of a  big bluff and just above a stream.  They thought that a snowslide  could never reach them at the  bottom of this canyon where they  were. " They had safely come  through the winter and welcomed  the warm breezes of spring, which  this season began to move the snow  on the hills very early.  One fine* day, however, a snow-  slide came straight down the canyon  and buried the miners 60 feet deep.  Last week "William Hanson and  miner Thurston went up from here  to bring downthe remains. They  first of all searched for them in the  tunnel but did not find them. Then  they dug through 15 feet of snow  above the site of the cabin and  came across the' remains lying on  the floor of the shack. The roof  and the sides of the building had  been swept away and in falling had  inflicted severe injuries on the unfortunate men who, however, were  probably suffocated quickly and  suffered little pain.  The search party desired to bring  the remains down to Kaslo, but  they were in such an advanced state  of -decomposition that this was  found to be impossible. It had been  thought that the icy snow would  preserve the bodies but it seems  that there was a cavity under the  floor of the shack through which  air had free circulation and thus  assisted decay. The bodies were  buried near the mine from which the  men hoped to obtain sufficient recompense for the hardships of their  calling,     j - -  - Colonial Trade Relations.  - ���.Tx)NnON,^LJunpi- 27.���On- tlio��� *�����---  sumption of today's session of the  Association of the Chambers of  Commerce of the United Kingdom,  the president of the board of trade  addressed the delegates.

Sir Robert withdrew  all the defamatory statements and  apologized for calling his brother-  in-law a blackmailer, and the court,  after lecturing the baronet and expressing the hope that the fact  that the bearer of the great historic  name of sir Robert Peel had stood  in a dock would prove sufficient  punishment, bound the defendant  over to come up for sentence if  called upon.

AVashington, June 27.���Tho Chinese minister, Mr. AVu, came to the  relief of the situation this morning  with a dispatch coming from Pekin.  The   minister's   news   appears   to  have been anticipated, but the importance of his message lies in the  fact that it is a week later in date  than   any   official dispatch which  has   reached   Europe  or   America  since the outbreak of the war.   The  minister says the dispatch reached  him     from     Pekiu,     via      Sinan  Fu,    the     capital     city    of    the  province of Shan Tung. The minister  is firmly convinced of the accuracy  of the statements contained in  his  message.    Secretary Hay also was  inclined to credit the dispatch and  was pleased to find it was corroborated by the dispatch of the French  consul-general in Shan  Tung to his  own government.   31. Cambon, the  French ambassador,   called at" the  state department just in advance  of the Chinese minister, but he had  no advices from   his own   government respecting the Chinese situation.  General MacArthur notified the  adjutant-general this morning of  the departure of the Ninth infantry  for China.  Despite all reports to the effect  that at least three regiments will  be placed at general Chaffee's command, acting secretary Meiklejohn  aud adjutant-general Corbin asserted today in the most positive  terms that the Ninth infantry are  the only American troops ordered  to service iu China, and that while  the Sixth Cavalry may go to China,  in-the event that they are needed,  their present orders only carry  them as far as Nagasaki.  It is expected that the transport  Grant, with general Chaffee on  board, will arrive at Nagasaki  about July ' 28th, which would insure his arrival at Taku on the  first of August. '  Five Cents a Life.  "V~T  ���97   ~nr.  _.T,  bensky,' 40 years old, and Mrs.  Michelena Anderson, 35 years old,  both Swedes, and residents of  Brooklyn, were killed on the Coney  Island creek trestle at an early,  hour this morning by a Brooklyn  Rapid Transit trolley car. The  Rapid Transit - Company recently  increased its rate of fare to Coney  Island from five to ten cents.  The two women and Emil J. Swan-  son, their escort, refused to pay  the extra five cents to reach the  island and were put off a car at a  point about a mile and a half from  their destination. They started to  walk and were on the trestle when  a car overtook them. Swansou  jumped and saved himself, but the  women were caught in the car's  fender and dragged nearly 200 feet.

Rome, June 27.���The Italian armored cruiser Fettore Pisani and  the protected cruisers Strombola  and Vesuvius have been ordered to  China waters.  Lord Roberts' Thoughtfulness.  Ottawa, June 25.���An instance  of the thoughtfulness and consideration of lord Roberts is afforded in  a cablegram received by lord Minto  today from the commander-in-chief  in South Africa. Yesterday the report came that captain McDonnell  of the   Canadian Mounted Rifles,  formerly of'the Northwest Mounted  Police,     had    beeu     dangerously  wounded in the abdomen. The first  report was evidently misleading for  lord Roberts now cables that captain  McDonnell is practically out of danger, and asks that the wounded officer's   wife   be   so   informed.   The  message is as   follows:   "Pretoria  Residence, 24th June.    Earl Minto,  Ottawa:   Please   inform   Mrs. McDonnell, Donegal street, Peterboro',  husband's bullet extracted.    Doing  well.   Practically   out of  danger.

Although  there has been no increase in the  number  of saloons in the city of  Toronto for the past thirteen years,  during which period there has been  an increase of:66,000 in population,  the saloon -men complain that business  with them  is rapidly falling  off.    They attribute it to the bicycle  and the improved tramway service.

St. _ Joi i Nls, _Nowf ou n d I and ,_June.  2i>.���One of the most comprehensive  - and- audacious projects ��� of "present-  (Iiiy finance is that just launched  by "Czar" Reid of Newfoundland  for the exploitation of this ancient  colony. It involves the transfer of  Jjis varied holdings to a limited liability company, capitalized at $25,-  000,000, and the development of his  millions of acres of arable, mineral  and forest lands, as well as the  operation of his railways, steamers  and kindred enterprises. At this  juncture, when the sentiment in  favor of tho fusion of tho several  scattered groups of British colonies  i.s being accentuated by the lessons  of loyalty taught by the war, and  concreted by the Australian federation bill, and when the movement  for the inclusion of Newfoundland  in the Dominion is again agitating  the politicians and people of the  two countries, ib should be of more  than passing interest to the Canadian public to become familiarized  with the details of this Napoleonic  undertaking.  The properties, franchises and  concessions which R. G. Reid is enabled to put on the money market  as the basis of his far-reaching  schemes for development are as  fallows:  (1) The island railway, 033 miles  of main and branch lines, built by  the -colony at a cost of about $11,-  000,000, and sold to Mr. Reid three  3*ears ago for one million in cash.  (2) About 0,000,000 acres of land  throughout the island, granted to  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  Mr. Reid as", au equivalent for his  operation of the road for fifty years.  (3) The monopoly of mail carriage  by steamers on the great bays of  the island for 30 years at $135,000 a  year, to fill which contract Mr. Reid  has just completed, a fleet of eight  steamers at a cost of auother million  dollars.  (4) The dry dock at St. John's,  built by the colony at a * cost of  $500,000 aud sold to Mr. Reid at  $325,000, to be used as a deep Avater  terminal for the railway system, in  addition to its legitimate purpose  as a convenience for repairing dam-  aged ships.  (5) The government system of  telegraphs, constructed by the colony at a cost of $280,000, and sold  to Mr. Reid for $125,000, he using  them,as accessories to the efficient  operation of the railway and  steamer services.  (0) The St. John's street railway,  with franchises to supply light and  power, the combined plant, with its  possibilities, being estimated now  to be worth fully a million dollars.  Mr. Reid, who, as a railway contractor, is well known throughout  Canada as having built some of the  heaviest sections of the western  divisions of the C.P.R., and who has  just recently been elected a director  of the Bank of Montreal, of which  city he is' a permanent resident,  first became a figure in our island  politics in 1890. The "government  wanted a capitalist to undertake  the building of its railroad, which  had collapsed completely after having been laid only 57 miles. Mr.  Reid grappled with the task, offering to take the' colony's 3i per cent  bonds as payment, instead of cash,  $15,600 a mile being the figure  stated. In 1892 he contracted to  complete the road across the island,  as the first contract went only part  way, the terms being the same as in  the first instance. In 1893 the government, having by this time become convinced that the road, which  ran through an untrodden wilderness, would be a costly one to operate when on its completion it reverted to the colony, arranged with  Mr. Reid to assume its operation  for ten years for a land grant of  5000 acres to every mile, about 3,-  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD ' OFFICE.

LAY, Manager.  000,000 in all. It looked a mad undertaking on his part. The interior  of the island had never been opened  up until Reid started his line  through it; there was not a habitation for hundreds of miles, and for  a quarter-century, with but the fishing community peopling the coast  line to draw upon for settlers inland, it would to all seeming appear  as if there 'would be no possibility  of the road developing enough  traffic to cover the expenses of running it, not to speak of earning  sufficient to pay a divided, to the  courageous investor who had taken  it in hand.  But Mr. Reid's plans were then  only in embryo. In 1897 he secured  the consent of the Liberal party,  which had given him these concessions, to a;. further enlargement' of  his operating contract, though the  unpopularity of the large grants  given to - Reid already made it  necessary to keep this secret until  after the ��� election. The contest,  however, resulted disastrously to  Liberals, the Tory party carrying  23 seats against 13. The new ministry proved even more amenable to  Reid's influences, aud agreed to the  famous "Reid deal," which has since  acquired such a world-wide publicity. By this arrangement Mr.  Reid Undertook to operate for 50  years the colony's entire railway  system���both what, he had built  and the branches already in existence���for.   a grant   of   another  DOMINION PAY  AT   THE "  GlubHotel  BIG   SCHOONER  Beer or Half-and-half only  FRESH  10c  COOL  The only good Beer in Nelson  E.

The island was iu deep financi-tl  distress at the-tirae, and it was declared that without * this million  dollars it must default, so this argument proved a potent one in influencing the vote ;for the measure  in the legislature.;: The dock was  sold to Mr. Reid because it was  eminently suited to round off his  enterprise, and because every year  the colony sank $10,000 to $15,000  iu its up-keep. Similar reasons explained the transfer of the telegraphs. The coast steam service  then in existence, one steamer going  northand another"westrwith_largo"  stretches of seaboard untouched,  was just then expiring, and it was  felt that the time was opportune to  secure a much improved one���a  boat in every bay, on every lengthy  AMERICAN  AND  EUROPEAN  PLANS  MEALS    25    CENTS  ROOMS LIGHTED BY ELECTRICITY  AND HEATED BY STEAM  .    25 CENTS TO 91  321 to 331 Baker Street, Nelson.

This is the Reid deal whicli has  already wrecked two colonial governments and which it is feared will  wreck the third should it proceed  to make the necessary transfers to  carry out Reid's programme. The  most likely thing to happen is that  the whole matter will be shelved  till after the next general elections  when concessions will be made from  both sides aud the colony of Newfoundland "will pass under the control of a limited liability company.
