Array KOOTENAY  Mas Mines that are Paying Dividends and Hundreds of Properties that can be Made  Dividend Paying Mines.  Op  J0,  ^zlfa  KOOTENAY  Has   a   Mineral   Output   of Upwards   of   One  Million    Dollars    Every    Month  In   The Year  DAILY   EDITION:  EIRST YEAR-NO. 43.  NELSON,  BRITISH   CO L U MB J i\, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1899.  WEEKLY  EDITION:    .  SEVENTH   YEAR-NO   II  ^  TELEGRAPHIC NEWS BY WIRE  Proceedings of the Legislature  Victor..., Feb. 22. ��� Yesterday in the  iiou.se, ex-premierTurner replied to finance  minister Cotton's budget speech, occupying nearly two hours. It was expected  that he would bring up the  subject of the �� Iientenant-governor's  dismissal of the late government  but did not, saying he intended placing  the motion on the order paper, which will  allow the matter being discussed. His  speech was disappointing, as he showed a  want of familiarity with figure's which  was unexpected. His strong point was  condemnation of the policy of retrenchment, which he maintained would result  in keeping back the development of the  province. He condemned the removal of  the agent-general at London and the reduction of the salaries of the superintendents of education and provincial police.  Colonel Baker also spoke, being answered by premier Semlin.  The debate was ended very abruptly by  the speaker ringing the division bell after  putting the question three times, the op-  position members being slow to take advantage of their opportunity. Booth was  on his feet just too late.  The hou��e in committee passed the  votes rapidly, remaining in session until  midnight, when all. were disposed of and  the schedules reached. The reduction of  salaries was the subject of the biggest-  fight, though the uprcountry members  complained of the smallness of the appropriations for their districts, Price  Ellison of East Yale particularly. The  new system of subsidizing hospitals was  also objected to strongly. Turner raised  ' the sectional cry, claiming that in the total appropriations the Island received  only $55,000.  The house is almost certain to rise this  week.  Rumors that speaker Forster and Martin of Rossland are kicking over the  traces, owing to the uarsimony of the government, are denied.  Accidentally Killed.  Winnipeg, Feb. 2-..���R. W. Jameson, M.  P. for  Winnipeg, accidentally shot himself   at   his   residence   last   night.     Mr,  Jamesoirattended a, board of trade meeting in the afternoon,  at which the Kettle  -Valley-Railway  charter.was  discussed."  . He moved .a resolution,  urging the charter Hhould��jbe"granted,"and no" monopoly"  given any railway, in British,Columbia.-  He supported the resolution in a stirring  speech, and at the close of the meetiug.  went home to dinner.   After the meal he-  read , the papers, and discussed  with his  wife  the  danger  of  carrying  firearms.  He  said:   "1   have one "here   now,'' and  pulled out a revolver, which he examined.  Hi�� wife turned  away to her household  duties, aud a second later the weapouwns  discharged,  the bullet entering near the  mouth.   Mr. Jameson leaves a.wife,and  two sons,  the eldest 10 and the youngest  0.   Before being elected to parliament, he  served-as alderman and mayor of Winnipeg, and was probably as popular a man  as lived in the city.  A Board of Trade Takes a-Bight Stand.  Winnipeg, Feb. 22.���The -Winnipeg  Boardof Trade adopted a resolution this  afternoon, strongly recommending that a  charter should be granted to the Kettle  Valley railway, by which the Corbin railway system will have an entrance into  the Boundary Creek section of British  Columbia. The Canadian_Pacific-influence-  "Biade a hard\figj_t to defeat the passage of  thpresolti^ioiij but they coijld not control  enough votes.- lTne expressed opinion of  leaditfgf members of the board was that  Winnipeg "could do more business in British Coluh-Bik with competitive roads thau  with one road, Mid that Winnipeg should  not be wholly dependent oh the Canadian  Pacific for transportation facilities;  Curling at Sandon;  Sandon, Feb. 22.���[Special to the Tri-  bu_fe.]-lii the IVIayor and Merchant's  competition���first draws-^Orawl'Ord of  Sandon defeated McCallum of SlOcan  City; Beamish of Rossland defeated Muir  Of Sandon, and Wilson of Sahdou defeated Smith of Rossland.

After Wee_csu;pf Vain Efforts.  Toronto, Feb. 22.���The Mail's special  from Washington says; "As indicated in  my despatch yesterday, the Anglo-American joint high commission, after weeks  of vain efforts, has concluded to adjourn,  and the Canadian members of the commission will pack their trunks at the  SJioreham hotel and travel towards their  native soil. There is a provision for the  commission to meet again on August 2nd  at Quebec, but none of the commissioners  really believe that the meeting will ever  take place."    Will Prove a Strong President.  Paris, Feb. 22.���Wild rumors are afloat  as to the doings and intentions of the  Bonapartists and Orleanisfc pretenders,  but the general belief is that  neither will do anything serious in the  face of the general acquiescence in  M.     Loubet's    election, :   though    fur  ther disturbances are threatened "after  M. Fan re's funeral. The message of the  new president, to parliament has greatly  strengthened his position. The agitation  fomented byM. Compeeanrl the LeMni'ie  against him ha-J incensed the modetate  members of L-�� Patrie FranoaHe and they  threaten to break up the organization.  Want to Buy a Steamship.  Vancouver,    Feb.   22.���Alderman    Mc-  Phaiden and   manager   Darling  of   the  Union Steamship Company went  to Victoria today en route to Portland and San  Francisco,  where they  will  look up and  arrange for the pfirchase of* a new steamer  to take the place of the Comox on the..  run  between   this  city and Shoal Bay."  The new vessel   will, it is expected,  cost  from $40,000 to $00,000.     '  A General Advance in Rates.  Montreal, Feb. 22.���Private advices from  London state that that the Grand Trunk  and Canadian Pacific Railway Companies  are considering a joint arrangement for a  general advance iu rates. Although both  railways are managed by officials iu Montreal, the men who dictate the policy of  each company reside in London and on  the Continent. ���  ���    ���  The Metal Market.  New York, Feb. 22.��� There was a slight  advance yesterday in the" exchange quotation for lead, the market standing $4.40  @ $4.45. The firm that fixes the selling  price for miners and smelters quoted lead  at $4.20 at the close. The NewcYork and  San Francisco quotations for silver were  stationary at 50| cents. -    .

It appears Ward gave Hart  $150 to secure for him an option on certain property at Harrison. Hart did not  secure the option nor did he return the  money, hence his arrest.  A   SECRET  RE-DISCOVERED.  Sympathy for Brewster.  The Tribune did not refer to the arrest  of a young man, named Brewster, who  was the agent of the Canadian Pacific  railway at Trail, in the hope that he might  be able ��'o make his shortage good, and  thus clear Himself of the charge.   That an  effort in th|s dij^c^ojn_was_made_is_shown  by_tbe~following from the Trail News of  the IStih : "As agent for the Canadian  Pacific railWiiy, at Trail, Mr, Brewster is  responsible for a shortage of about $1206,  which, it is shown, was shared in by one  of his subordinates. That there  is much sympathy for the young  man is evidenced by the . fact  that a sum of money sufficient to cover  the deficit was raised by subscriptions  ranging from $10'.. to $100 from business  men aud 4'riends. But for obvious reasons  the powers that be chose to let the. jaw  take its course, and as a matter of right  and justice* regardless of personal sentiment, none will dispute that respect for  the laws which- protect the peoples Commend this action. To have accepted such  a settlement would have been an incentive for future violations, and while the  amount was readily subscribed, it was  not the idea to defeat justice, but to save  a young man from having the best years  of his life blighted by that stigma which  separates him from the world. However,  tlie committal now precludes all possibility Of a settlement, and the case is in the  hands of the crown."  Miners Paid Teh Cents a Day.  J. Sloat Fassett, of Elmyra, New York,  is in San Francisco arranging for men and  machinery to work his extensive mining  properties in Corea, where he has government concessions aggregating in area  nearly 100 square miles. Another American, L. S. J. Hunt, at one time proprietor  of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, has large  government concessions there. Messrs.  Schulz aud Gunkor, who have been at  work for the latter, have returned from  the hermit nation, where they had been  employed by Mr. Hunt in building astamo  mill. 'They say he has good mining property. Prospects and assays show considerable ore going $40 to the ton. They  say that the best native miners, who can  do as much work as an American, cost  only 10 cents per day. They think American laborers should not think of going to  Corea. They could not compete with the  natives. But there is a good chance for  American mechanics.  Patent   Applied  for   a  Successful   Process   of  Casting  Copper.  Every little while the secret of successfully   (.'.nsting copper is discovered,  this  time by B S. Summers, in the foundry of  the Western Ecctric Company at Chicago,  who has, it is stated, applied for a pateut  for a successful process for cast ing copper.  Chemists aud workers in metals ha ve been  experimenting  with   this    problem    for  many years,  but complete succesu, it is  said, has not been attained until  within  the last week.   A Chicago statements to  the effect thatin the foundry of the Westf  ern E'ectrie   Company  from  300   to 500.  pounds of the metal are now  being siic1.  cessfully handled in this manner each day.,  So-called copper castings have been on1.  the market for many years, but have contained   a  large   percentage   of   foreign  metals, principally zinc and aluminum,  which render the articles far from perfect  in the construction of dynamos, switch-"  boards  and  ot her   electrical^ machines.  They all have a low  conductivity,  the;  range being mostly under 50 per cent.hAIl  contained at least 4 per cent of zinc, for;  with any less portion of this metal in the;  mixture the castings were spongy and full:  of blowholes.   The highpst conductivity  was in one case when 774- per cent  was  reached.   The assertion is'now made thatthe castings made at the Western Electric  shops have beeu made of such pure copper that 09.92 per cent conductivity has  been obtained in one lot, and the average  is more than 90 per cent.   A few impurities remain in   the copper,   but they are  usually less than  ,35 of 1 per cent, and  sometimes .01 of 1 per cenr. Molten copper  exposed to the air generates gases that  prohibit good castings.   These gases form  blowholesin themai_s,and thearticlescome  out full of cells like a honeycomb.   Sometimes the gases form to such a degree that  the mass is pushed out of the mold to the  floor.   Mr. Summers adds some chemical  mixture to the melted copper just before  it is poured into the moulds that takes up  the air in them and allows smooth castings  to be produced.'"'  Such a process would be of great value  in electrical  work.     Copper,'is the only  practical metal where high conductivity-  is necessary, and the purer the copper the,  better the-results. J Where-pure copper-  wAs required heretof'ore,rolfed metal was  taken, and the articles cut out with saws  in the shape, required.   The alleged discovery is possible to save in the weight of  the metal, for in some places where a 3900-  pound   piece was formerly   designed, a  casting   weighing 2G00   pounds could be  used.   The difference in cost of working  the metal would be a great consideration,  for copper is worth 20 cents a pound.'  The-"rights" of the nevv process belong  to the Western.EJectric,Company solely.  The ancients are claimed to have tempered copper, and some claim has been  made in the past to casting it. When Mr.  Summers was asked if he was working on  the process of tempering copper he remarked that this was the next thing to be  done', but wouldsay nothing in regard to  any experiments he had made along this  line. Mr. Summers is credited with having recently perfected the making of  semi-steel, a union of steel and cast iron;  with the cheapness ot manufacture of  cast iron and a great part of the strength  of steel, and thus enabled his establishment to cut down the weight of dynamos  and other machines.  FUNSTONS   STRANOB   CAREER.  TROUT   LAKE   DISTRICT   NEWS.  [Trout Lake Tffnie;- Fcbriutry 9th.]  The work   of transporting the  Silver  Cup ore to Billy Bity'-s has commenced  and   is   being   pushed through   With all  possible expedition.  Work is progressing favorably on the,  Nellie L,  Hugh McPhersou has eighteen inches of  ore on the St. IiilmOj a claim adjoining the  Great Northern mine.

Jack intends to leave  for tlie foot of the lake to'resnme his trapping'Operations' iu the near future.  Ben Rumey from the Landing is paying  Trout Lake an extended visit.  A deal is now pending on the Towser  involving a sum amounting to $20,000.  This company adjoins the Silver Cup, and  recent development has demonstrated it  to be one of the most promising properties on Trout Lake.  Walter Phelan and George Bell returned a few days ago from their trip to  Haley creek. They cleared the snow off  all the bridges in the lower country.  Walter reports a rather singular phenomenon in the snowfall at a point on the  southwestern shore of the lake. At the  foot of the lake the snow is three feet  deep. Coming up to a point 8 miies from  town the snow is only .10 inches deep,  while up a short distauce further it returns again to the 3-foot level and remains  at that until Trout Lake City is reached.  This peculiarity has been remarked before, as last Christmas there was only two  inches of snow there, when the snowfall  registered two feet here. Regarding this  seeming eccentricity of nature it is the  belief of rnauy that there are hot springs  in the neighborhood and the warmth  therefrom causes a decrease in the amount  of snow lying in their vicinity.  ___.ASLO_N_.Wj3--NOTES;   S.

The manager of one of the meat markets at Dawson has reached the Coast, and  he is reported assaying: "At one time  the retail price of the best beef was $1.50  per pound, and it was not at all plentiful  then. For a year or more it remained at  this high figure, but last winter the price  began to fall, and it has been going down  ever since. The wholesale price is from  15 to 25 cents per pound by the carcass,  and the retail price is from 20 cents to oO  cents per pound. That includes the very  best kind of meat. It may thus;be seen  that there is very little money in the  business at this time. Were anyone to  take cattle in there now I think he would  Although a Young Man He Has Had Many  Remarkable Adventures.  Frederick Funston, who led the three  companies of the Kansas regiment in their  gallant charge against the Filipinos last  Tuesday, is one of the youngest colonels  in the United States army. He is 28 years  old.  _>.��� Colonel   Funston  was born in Kansas  ��� and is the son of an ex-congressman from'  it hat state.   He was graduated from the  [state university of Kansas and then be-;  came a newspaper man.   Afterwards he  joined a government expedition to Death  {valley, in Southern California, sent out to  ;niake a geological investigation.   Death;  '.valleyis said'to be the mostdesolate waste  in this country.   The expedition suffered  {every kind of privation for nine months,:  in which time colonel Funston  took the'  record of the. highest temperature ever  "'measured for any government, which was  ���'-65'degrees Fahrenheit.  {"Returning from this expedition he took  a; corn mission from the government to explore Alaska, and for two years he wandered about there alone.   After a rest of  several months he went to Mexico and  Central America on a private venture, it  being his object to get options on land for  coffee plantations. The project .needed  more, financial support than he could secure in the west, and for this reason he  visited.New York. The support, however, was not forthcoming, and Funston  became;assistant secretary for the To-  peka & Santa Fe Railroad Company,  whose general offices are at Topeka, Kansas.  The routine of this post was monotonous to him, and three months later he  surprised   his   friends  by enlisting as a  private    in    the    Cuban    army.      His  promotion   in   that   service   was   rapid.  Siion    he   was    made   lieutenant,   then  captain,  then major,  and finally he was  put in command of all the artillery force  east of Havana.    During the   eighteen  months he spent in Cuba he was in twenty-three battles, had his left arm mutilated by a shell, received a Mauser.bullet in  ' his left lung, and was sick of the fever tor  , two- months.   Once while.leading. a.bat-  . tery to a point of vantage,   he had his  horse shot under him.   The horse rolled  ��� oru-Eonston's iright   leg,"- crushing' the'  -'thigh.. His  campaigning   had,   by 'this  time, rendered him a physical wreck, and  not feeling able to continue in the service  he asked to be retired.   His request was  granted.   On the way'to the coast, however, he was captured  by. the Spanish.  He was condemned to die, but later, being  put ou parole, escaped and came,toYNew  York.        / -, ..  When war was declared against Spain'  he was commissioned by governor Leedy  of Kansas" as colonel of the Twentieth  Kansas regiment. Later, general Miles  sent him to take a.place on his staff. .Col-  oiiej.Fun.ston insisted on keeping his regiment, but lie spent several weeks with  general Miles at Tampa, giving him the  benefit of his knowledge of Cuba. His  regiment was stationed at San Francisco  for two months. Six weeks before it  sailed for Manila the colonel met a beautiful young woman of high social position  in Oakland, whom he married the day the  transport sailed for the Philippines.  Colonel Funston arrived in Manila with  his regiment on December 9th. The colonel is a short man with broad shoulders.  lose money on his venture. There are  about 550 carcasses in the Klondike, most  of which are owned by Perdue & Burnsand  an English company of which Pat Galvin  is manager. This will be sufficient to  feed Dawson until the middle of June,  and by that time more cattle will be  there to meet the demand. We are now  building a refrigerator to preserve our  beef during the summer. The experiment hiis never been tried, but lam confident it will be successful. There will  never again be su h prices as have prevailed in the past. There has beeu no  money made in it during the last few  months." -���   ������ :   BUILDING   A   RAILWAY  Makes  Lively   Times   at   a   Kootenay  River  Town.  [Bonner's Ferry Herald, February 18th.]  Galena Landing���that part of Bonner's  Ferry so well known  to all travellers in  the old days���presents a business appearance now that it is the point at which  Foley Brothers, Larson & Halverson have  established    their    headquarters.     The  usual   animated   scenes    are    witnessed  that are to be looked for around the headquarters  of a rail way construction company.   O. W. Swenson   is the  manager  for the contractors.    Near by is located  the headquarters of Porter Brothers, the  bridge contractors.   They have a  large  force of carpenters preparing the bridge  timbers for their places in the long structure that is soon to span the Kootenay;  another  force  is driving  piles  for  the  bridge, and still another is getting out  stone, nearby, for the cribs.  Between the headquarters ot the general contractors and the bridge contractors  is located the sawmill of the International  Lumber Company, Ltd. They are now  sawing bridge timbers for Porter  Brothers, and are employing 14 men in  the mill aud 18 or 20 iu the timber.  - A drive down the valley along the line  of the railway shows that every mile or  two large and comfortable quarters have  been erected, and in all the cuts where  winter work can be carried on to advantage large forces are at work, and considerable earth has already been moved  and carried but to the fills on push-cars.  .The.right-of-way is practically all cleared,  and'the work already presents-quite au  advanced appearance.

It is  hardly probable, however, that the work  will be finished by July 1st, as contemplated when the contract was let.  Senaca G. Ketchum Turned Boomer.  Seneca G. Ketchum has a boom that is  all liis own. When Seneca G. was acting as  chief of police at Nelson he was regarded  as a man of modest ambition, but now  that he has-become the.distiuguished editor of the Skagit County Times at a little  town over in the state of Washington be  has developed into a boomer.^ He was in  Seattle one day last week and there made,  public his new boom. "When I've talked  about Cedro-Woolley," said Mr. Ketchum,  "the fellows clown here have always  said, 'Why don't your town get on the  map,'and such discouraging things. Well,  we're on the map all right and have been  for many moons, but never until last week  did the citizens of Sedro-Woolley think,  ���of���trying-"to~~ehan"ge~the map. We've  started to do it, and there is no telling  what will come of it. We have a representative from Skagit county, Joseph H.  Parker, who has pleased his constituents  right along ifhtil last week. In an unguarded moment Mr. Parker introduced  a bill to move the capital of the  state      frc?m      Olympia     to    Tacoma.  "Then it was that the people of Sedro-  Woolley showed tp the people of the state  that not only had they ah eye On the gun  that js loaded, but likewise had as long a  reach for-the pie counter asf Taeoina or  ahy other town.

[t'ort Steele Prospector, February lStli.J  It is reported that a Scotch syndicate  has bonded the St. Eugene group of mine*-,  at Moyie, in East Kootenay.   The figures  are $100,000.    The syndicate are trying to,  and possibly will, secure the Moyie, Queen  of the Hills, and Lake Shore claims.   Leslie Hill and A. F. Schneider, mining experts for the syndicate, finished their examination of the above named claims and  left on Tuesday, Mr. Hill for London, England, and Mr. Schneider for New. York  City.   The-St. Eugene group .is one'of the  great silver-lead properties of British Columbia.   The  group  consists otYtbe St. -  Eugene and St. Peter, two full claims, and  the  Rose  and  Leretta   fractions;   both  fractions having an area of halt a claim.  On the St. Eugene and St.Peter'the vein  is exposed by many openings on  the surface for a distance of .900 feet..  In one  place on the hillside the vein is ��� stripped "  for a distance of 150 feet, showing a continuous body of galena with an' average  width of  six feet.    Development work  consists of 1200 feet of tunnels and shafts.  About 000 feet of this work has been in  ore, and has yielded 2000 tons.   On the '  dump there is about 1200 tons of first-class  clean ore and SOOtons of second-class. The  clean ore will average 52 ounces in silver  and 08 per cent lead.   The present owners  are  John   A.   Finch,-James   Cro'nin, .R.  O'Neill and others of Spokane.  Shipped Seven Carloads.  [Moyie Leader, February 18tlr.]  One hundred aud forty tons, or seven'  carload,:, of ore from the St. Eugene mine-  was shipped this week from Moyie to the   ���  smelter at Trail.   This is the-first shipment from the St. Eugene,    The bad condition of the road to the mine, caused by  the soft weather, had a damagiug effect  in getting the ore down from" the'mine for  shipment.'   For three weeks past the road  from the last switchback down to the'lore  bin has been practically., bare, arid what  ore has been hauled down has been done  with great difficulty.     Teams would first  .  be put on'hauling snow, which  would be  spread on the bare patches,' then' a-.few   '  loads of ore would  be hauled,, and then  the, same, operation -would .be repeated.

Fast Time Across Africa. -  Albert B. Lloyd, a young Englishman,  has-recently employed  tlie resources -of-'.,  civilization to make a record trip across-">r  Central   Africa.   "He started + from "the .,  northwest corner of Victoria,-Nyanza,.in . ";  September last, and three months later he.  ;was   waiting   for   a   steamship at   the  mouth- of,the Congo.   * For, about four- .  sevenths of the long journey he .was a   -'  passenger   on steamboat   and   railroad,  reaping the fruit sown  by the pioneers "  who took about two years or more to cross .  the continent.   He  was the twenty-first  man     to    make    v tho    journey    from  -  sen    to   sea. , Mr.   Lloyd    spent    some  time  on   the  shores  of   Victoria  Lake,  r but if he had pursued his journey direct  faom the Indian ocean, using the railroad  from Mombnsa as far as it" now extenus  toward the lake, he.would have made the  journey from  sea to sea in a week over ,  _four_months, asonly-five-weeks-need'be  spent on the vvay from Mombasa to the  lake.   Mr. Lloyd has demonstrated that  only 130 days  need now  be given to the  trip across equatorial   Africa.   It  is   43  years since Livingstone made the pioneer  transcontinental  journey.     He   reached  Quilimano in a year and seven   months  from  Loanda   on   the  Atlantic.     Those  were the days of painfully slow   travel,  but  of  enormous  scientific   results.    It  was, on that journey that Dr. Livingstone  collected his data pn the geology otViituer  "  Africa   upon which.MiVrchigou- based his.   -  famous liypotliesTs as to   tlie gcjologjcar  history of a whole continent, a bijillja'nt"  generalization upon a meagre cjollectibh  of facts which proved later to be correct  in all essentials. ��.  But the Snow Does not Fall.  The   following was penned   yesterday  and put in type today, but still the snow  does   not   fall.. A  dull  day  of  leaden,  threatening skies came upon   the   town,  but neither leaden  skies nor lifeless air  could rob the streets of the grace  that  came With the new-fallen snow. Powdery  and white it lay all the morning On the  less frequented Streets, breathing tip into  the air that invisible  something   which  with the thermometer at  40  is   a   mere  clammy, choking dampness, but with, the  thermometer at 25 is an exhilarating, frosty  delight.   Keep clear of the busy streets  on such a morning: let your walk be, for  example, southward along Stanley street ���  below Silica street, and you may recapture perhaps for a short half hour that  impression,   long    vanished   with   most  adults, which makes an urban snowfall ih  this climate for children a thing pf magic ..'  and ever-fresh surprise and wonder.   If  the    suburbs,    like    Bogustown,    take  on      again      their      vanished      rural  quality   under   a    snowfall,    the   city,  ou the other  hand, is never more  un-  eompromisingljr urban than beneath this  I white visitant, from the upper air.-   To re-  tnrn to Stanley street, that thoroughfare  is never more the stately urban street, the  dwelling place of a strictly ordered and  conventional civilization,  than when its  roofs   are whitened   and   its   chimneys  hooded with new-fallen snow.

"WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 22, 1899  The board of trade of Winnipeg has  placed itself on record as in favor of competitive railways in British Columbia bypassing a resolution to the effect that the  Kettle Valley railway should be granted!  a charter by the parliament of Canada.:  {When the time comes, what action will:  , the board of trade of Nelson take, now1  that a majority of its executive officers!  are so satisfactory to the local traffic  officials of the Canadian Pacific ?  It _s reported that one of the members  of the legislative assembly on the government side has threatened to resign because  of the amount appropriated for this district. The member is from Rossland. Let  him resign.  The action of the city council regarding  the building at Nelson of a hospital to be  in charge of the Sisters of Charity is to be  commended.   There should  be no sentiment in such matters.   It take�� money to  run a hospital, and the Sisters know how  -    : to raise it.   The general hospital at Nelson  has  not been  a success, mainly be-  ���   ;  cause of the great difficulty of getting  {v{   sufficient money with  which  to pay current expenses.    The land on   which   to  erect a hospital has been set apart for the  .{purpose, and if it .is deeded to the Sisters  ��:����moii;condition chat they erect and maintain  ^���^."ajgeneral hospital, who is any theloserby  {|i%_.uch "action?- .Certainly   not   the  city."  |^C"!Tb��e_ provincial  government should take  Ih^fthe present hospital building aud make it  (no   0��     to       '$n &, -i L -  ^*^a,public school, leaving the hospital busi-  ,"sVi_ness at Nelson to people who are willing  {^'to^under.ake the work.

Railroads and Interest Kates,  illustrative of   the decline ih current  rates of interest and the changes in value  of railroad stock as an investment'is cited  the case of stock of the New York Central  railrond, of \vhich several years ago William K. Yandeibilt sojd 800,OQO shares for  $180  a  ^hare  vvitli   the promise that it  should pay 8 per cent dividend.   The dividend.- ha ve fallen steadily until they are  notv but 4 ner cent, y.efc the stock is selling  tod iy at $140, or more than when the rate  ..i interest was double what it. is today.  It is Ggured that about $300,000,000 worth  of railway bonds are now outstanding in  this country, paying 7 per cent interest  and rppresentitlgC5d'iferentissues. Nearly  .all of these bonds will mature within the  iiHxt 10 years and those roads  will  thereafter refund then)  with  issues  paying a  much lower rain of interest.   Theieare 12  i. sues bearing 8�� per cent interest, 11 pay-  inc 3 per cent and one 2V per cent.

About Persona More or Less Prominent in the  World.  A recently published article concerning  the late  empress   Elizabeth   of  Austria  tells some interesting stories of her life  which are quite at variance with the customary descriptions of her habits.   Ib appears  that the sorrow which  made her  life eccentric in so  many particulars was  due in  the first place to disappointment  in her domestic life, from which she never  wholly recovered.   The only real reconciliation that took place between her and  the emperor lasted for only a very short,  time.   It was soon after her   marriage,  according to this writer, that she learned  to her enduring misery that the devotion  of a husband and the freedom of a monarch's life   were not   always consistent.  In spite of the emperor's respectful treatment of and his considerate esteem for  her, the two are said to have been practir  cully separated from a date a few years  after the marriage which was celebrated  with  so unusual a display of   youthful  affection.   The  most curious fact stated  about the empress is that she possessed  no taste for music, art or literature.   She  is said to have beeu fond of solitude, and  during the days when her life seemed to  ^���Jbehh'ap.pjes,l^h��  ^lierftfaatf't^^  ffestivVngecuetft ,tfe^  Sflt0^jWhicj-io:she^^^  ; ^Bega#"; itdj, ""s hpwtCtjnemselv���eC^}and^*Bsh(|f  Cfseue"tiieti'Sr.g0^  Samn*e^Somel��yearsv��  Jiestnuiee/nent."���  rf'Er}__|e~oLKtlje^m  '���iimon*l-��C��A��u!f.ti_a,,��An,ntlHh--gna-;"yi had be"eriE  ficcpniphshedj.aud^JJeak", ,tn�� cHupgarian  rst-ttesnfauVisiv��saaid^���to "liaVeJtblH'fche^emr  ,jpeabe"-_is;:^  same-suggestionnhad i-eeirmadejto.

As there  were sometimes several of these women  in his shop at once, and as the woman who  paid   the   most got tho preference,  the  price went up to 100 francs at times. Now  the  false   hair   which   has   become   the  fashion is said to be the result of tlie undulation.   Hot irons have burned off the  hair in places on the heads of some women  and dried it up in other places until it has  dropped out.   So the wigs must be worn  either until the hair comes in "gain, or  some style of  wearing short hair conies  into fashion.    The only doubt as to tlie  authenticity of the new fashion lies in the  fact that'it comes fro.ni London.    English  women are notoriously fond of piling on  false hair until they astonish French and  American  women.    Possibly the burned  hair is only a pretext to pile on more that  is false and to complete their satisfaction  by wearing a whole wig.  Experience of all Singers.  One of the greatest expenses for a singer  in grand opera is the cost of the costumes  which she must have at the outset of her  career.   During the first three years that  she sang Mine. Nordica spent every cent  that she received as salary in acquiring  the necessary wardrobe, and that is practically the experience of all the singers.  In a theatre like   the  Metropolitan" the  women  all  wear  beautiful   clothes,, and  that is evidence that they receive large  salaries.     In the smaller European cities,  iu which the singers are poor paid or are  merely at the beginning of their careers,  the dressing is of quite another fashion.  Some idea :of what that is occasionally  may be gained at the Metropolitan when  some of the less important singers are put  into the leadiug roles in the case of illness  or some other accident.   The difference in  appearance   of    their    costumes   shows  plainly the difference in their compensation.    When they appear in the company  of   the   other   singers,   the    contrast is  startling.  -Mine.

For it is to Mrs.  Crabtree's .-judgment and discernment  that her daughter's wealth today is attributed. She not only protected her from  all the influences of stage life that might  have been considered harmful, but invested her fortune as well. Lotta has  never thought of returning to the stage  but once since she retired. Joseph Jefferson tried hard to persuade her that she  ought to join-himand the other stars who  gave "The Rivals" several years ago  through thecouulry. Lotta at first con-'  sented, but she took advantage of the  privilege of her sex very soon afterward  and changed her mind with a positiveuess  that was not to be moved.  Once More in the Fashion.  At  last   the  reaction   has   conie,   and  straight-haired   women   who  never submitted to the process ol: having their hair  undulated to increase their charms will  find themselves once more in the fashion.  The rebellion against tjie. crimping which  has been popular for several years will  probably  be enduring.   The news from  London is that wigs have suddenly grown  fashionable, as the result of the excessive  Pse of the crimping iron on women's heads;  in recent years.   The fashion of having  the  hair crimped  from  the roots  right  doWn  to the ends  made its Appearance  first about ten yeahs ago, and inimediately became popular.   It was becoming to  most women, and  for   once  women who  possessed beautifully waving and curly  hair were equalled  by artificial  devices,  Once a woman ba$ submitted herself to  the process and then looked into the glass,  she was a victim of'the habit.   The introduction of the pompadour style had much  to do wi-h the disappearance of the undulation, as it was first called in Paris, although  to this day there are women in  Paris who cling to this fashion of improving their looks.   The fashion was taken  up in London,  where the English hairdressers   imitated   it  crudely.    In   New  York it was almost as well done as in  Paris, only the man there who is famous  for his skill could excel the best New York  friseurs.   This Frenchman had a place in  the   Rue de 1'Echelle in Paris and  was  known   over  all Europe.   Women came  from London to be treated  by him  and j  went back across the Channel  with their  heads wrapped in cloths to keep  the curl |  in and the damp air out.  The great merit  of this man was that he could produce the  most natural effects and so graduate the  crimps in the hair from  the first to the  last one that they seemed to grow slowly  in size, and came nearer to nature than  any of the other crimps could.   A change  in the fashion is no longer important to  him.   He made a  fortune long ago.   His  charge was only 10 francs, but he would  sell the next turn to the woman that bid  bighe��t price.

The amount of care bestowed on the  dresses enables them to be preserved for  Jong service. One singer not only has her  costuniefrpreSvSedTifter every performance  but has tlieui cleansed of all the dirt which  they may have accumulated during the  evening. That is likely to be a considerable task, as the stage is always dusty*.  Anybody who has seen the prima donnas  clutch their trains as they leave.the stage  at the concert performance can realize  how much they are afraid of the dirty  stage. This is not possible, however, during the operas', and the singers can only  drag their skirts around aud take the  chances of having them cleaned afterward. It takes the attention of maids,  cleaning es'tabllshnierits aud seamstresses  to keep garments in condition even for  the opera season here..  An Old-Tiine Actress.  Lotta Orabtree has beeu for several  weeks in New York, visiting the theatre s  with her customary enthusiasm and looking as phenomenally youner as she did ten  years ago, when her last appearances on  the stage were made. She spends her  time in the way that suits her best, confining herself only during^* the summer  months to her beautiful .-cottage on the  shore of a lake in New Jersey. During  the winter months she is in Boston, New  York or the South���in any place, in fact,  that appeals to her fancy, or, what is  more important, satisfies Mrs. Crabtree,  her mother. "Lotta" is almost unknown  to the* present generation of theatregoers, but her eyes are as deep blue in  color, her voice as infantile, and her hair  of the same reddish brown as when she  was about the most popular comedienne  on the American stage. She accumulated  a large fortune, which is said to make her,  next to Joseph Jefferson, the richest of  American actors. Some of it has been  lost in recent years in one way or  another, but she is still a woman of large  wealth. Mrs. Crabtree is her constant  companion now, as she has always been  during her career on the stage. She is  past eighty, but is the same active, interested person that she always was, thoroughly informed on the affairs of the day,  and as alert as she was during the years  in which she.so judiciously invested her  A Coat that Was Not Admired.  One young woman who is better known  in New York for other qualities than her  taste in dress acquired last fall a garment  which her friends found difficult to admire,   while   the  few   enemies  she  had  made remarks about it in public.   It was  the solitary specimen of its kind seen in  this city during the season.    While its  rarity made the thine dearer to its possessor, there was attached to it the penalty of greater conspicuOusness.     So this  unique article of apparel has managed to  get  its   share  of  attention  during  the  season not only from the young woman's  acquaintances, but from all who saw it as  well.   It  was of a kind to attract notice,  for it was a coat made entirely of leather  ���unmistakable,      ordinary      every-day  leather.   Sometimes on walking skirts, or  .as aiv ornament to' women's outing jackets, the Euglish tailors have used leather.  But the whole coat of leather was something quite unknown,  particularly as it  was evidently worn just as a cloth coat  would have,beeu.   The fashion apparently did���'f not ^grOw;"".Np^.n_! ore .coatsjof'^th^t.i  k>i"n��.;whei;e se^ur.J;T  _. lie' "fiel d*wi thou tyif: i val ry..?*;TliT-!nreasbni:or���"*  ^ts^existencej-a^^^  '^qiUy^he^  "���tUT,n0d^fi;pj!i;;il?aris  ,thaTfc"' cleared :��u p.-:the? tii ys"tery��,i u i.t'h��e: cftse. ?'  ft\^ariKt^vh^  |t asyuuc.h.pfia^fad'.as the bicyclejuse4:;to.be;��  ^a.jei.tjlels.'coat 'i^lthe. i?t?_��_pg1\'Ui��lu'g*rot}-r0he��  persoh who*nU.yigateS,,i,Qii"e<ofi--_&'v"dhi^ies,.��  When-'theid'-juhe.^se'' d- Qz|s��wasa .arrested  Ip(jn\ti.:r<2; ��� .0iah^ps"Ej,^sees"'rfpi5 ���.i;lurufng. h'ei"  autpiflpBlle.iat/a.^ iij-galUy :rap]S��ftajte," she  .yvoitg one - pfathe.sffle poats.

Somebody has been-discussing the origin of the skirt dance, which has just, begun to lose its old popularity, not Only on  the English stage but in drawing-rooms  as well. The management of the multi-  _t ud in Ous-sk i uts_co.uld=be__so_--d iscreet-that  young women danced in them in drawing-  rooms, and this diversion came to be regarded as wholly proper. But the skirt  danfe has of late years lost much of its  popularity. Even on the stage its most  skillful performers have varied their  methods, and the simple gracefulness of  Sylvia Cray, Letty Lind and Phyllis  Broughtou is a tiling of the past. The  woman who invented the dance seems to  have been more famous: than anybody  supposed. It was no less a person than  Emma Hart, Lord Nelson's Lady Hamilton. That is.the person Francisque Sar-  cey has selected as the real originator of  the dance which in its somewhat degenerate and present estate is largely a matter of calcium lights ancl dress goods. A  letter which M. Sarcey quoted was written by Goethe, and describes what the  French critic takes to be the origin of the  dance> The famous German wrote in  March, 1.787 :  "Sir William Hamilton, who is still the  British ambassador here, after having  studied the works of nature for so long a  time, has found a beautiful young woman  the most delightful thing in art or nature.  She is an English woman, very beautiful  in face and figure. She gives an enter-  tiinmenc dressed in a Greek costume.  Her hair hangs loose, she takes two shawls  in her hands, and she so varies her attitudes, gestures and play of features that  ic is like a dream. Kneeling, standing,  sitting, she assumes by turns au expression of exaltation, repentance, anxiety,  remorse, affection."  The skirt dance now is so much the  work of the electrician and the limelight  man that it is agreeable to find the original inventor of its grace and beauty was  a woman.  m  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  ^^^^a^^a^a^^^^^^^^^a^^^^^*^^^^^^^^^^^^^  Bap Glassware...

Dr. Arthur returned from Salmo last  evening, where he was called as coroner to  investigate the circumstances attending  the death of a miner named Patrick  Kehoe. Kehoe left Salmo ou Sunday  morning for the Salmo Consolidated Company's mine, aud was found dead on the  trail the following morning, about one-  quarter of a mile from the mine aud 12  miles from Salmo. As the body was not  frozen it was evident that death was due  to exposure aud exhaustion. Keboe  weighed closed upon !!)() pound?, and as  the snow was deep and soft he broke  through so that he had to raise himself  out with his hands. The marks on the  trail indicated that he had fought his way  along in this manner for some distance  until he was completely overcome and lay  down to die. Jiehoe had considerable  mining property and on his body $170 in  cash was recovered. The coroner decided  that an inquest was not necessary.   ��� .  ���r,  Down to Seven Shillings.  Advices received iu Nelson yesterday :  from London announce that Hall Mines  shares have fallen another five shilling?,  and that the stock which a few weeks ago  was quoted at 17s 6d, could not be sold  above seven shillings. As the par value  of the shares is twenty shillings, the condition of the market indicates that the  shares for which the English investors  paid par are now worth considerably less  than half their former value. It is not  known whether the drop has been caused  by an effort on the part of some of the  larger shareholders to unload while the  market was favorable, or by unfavorable  reports received from the company's  properties in Kootenay.
