Ottawa, April 21.—At a. meeting ol'
the railway committee of the privy coini-
eil held this morning, taking advantage
ol' the terms under which the Crow's
Nest .Pass road got its subsidy from parliament, the Nelson & Bedlington Hail-
way Company applied for running powers
over eight and a half miles of the Canadian Pacific railway line. The engineers
had agreed that the cost of paralleling
the Canadian Pacific railway tit (his
point would be $'■) 1.000 a mile.
.Judge Clarke, for the Canadian Pacific
railway, contended that, in lixing the
terms the Canadian Pacific railway did
not consider that the applicants should
be allowed to make use of this paying
stretch of their line without bearing a
proportion of the cost of the approaches
ou either side, passing through a less profitable part of the country.
Mr. Mulock—'Where would you consider your approaches began ?
Mr. Clarke—I could not definitely say.
Mr.   Mulock—Surely   they   would , not
extend either way.to the two oceans?
Mr. Blair considered this a. very dangerous principle to proceed on.
Mr. Clarke said it portion of the C.I.'.K.
between Winnipeg and Port Arthur,
which was served by a, long approach
around Lake Superior,, was in somewhat
the same situation, if calculating the
value of the running rights to another
road there.
The minister of railways did not seem
to favor this view at all, and expressed
his ignorance how it was to be ascertained whether certain portions of a, line
Avere particularly "remunerative or otherwise.
The decision of the committee was announced as unanimously in favor of.the
granting of the principle of the application. As to the matter .ol' the terms,
neither party was prepared to . make a
definite proposal. It was judged wisest
to give them .'--a. month to come to an
.Judge Clarke for the C. P. R. ga.ve his
assurance that his road would impose no
unnecessary delay.,.      -
the fanning constituency of North lie-
ginn, vigorously protested against the
elevator monopoly and the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, which, he said
was in league with the elevator men.
The elevators built ten years ago'were
for the good of the farmers, and the Canadian Pacilic railway acted iu the interests of the farmers. Today, however,
elevators were built in the interests of
the grain buyers, and could only handle
half the number of grades that the government said they should handle, lie
held that the farmers ought to be in a
position to do their business
having, their hands tied, and
robbed for the benefit of the
specula-tors. ___^

Niow Dunvki*. April 21.—The owners
of the Mollie Hughes have.been cleatiing
up the dumps on tluit property this week,
and are sticking the ore .'preparatory to
making a carload shipment in a few days.
The ore comes.principally from the Real
Idea, and Pinto leads iind is expected to=
give good gold values. Assays have given
from $100 to $128 in gold.
Another connection has been made from
tlie No. 2 to the No. 1 tunnels on the
Bosun, it (fording much better 'ventilation,
its well as making easier the handling of
the,ore from tlio upper workings. The
Bosun will make its 100-ton shipment as
usual this month.
George Betty's dividend-payer, the
Monitor, tit Three Forks, has shipped' in
the neighborhood of 300 tons of ore this
Avi liter, and is looking Avell at present.
The galena from the Monitor carries gold
values .in excess of $8 per ton.
0. M. Rosendale, representative of the
McDowell sampling Avorks at Nelson, is
buying ore through the camp. He AA'as
looking after the Mollie Hughes ore today,
and has also given the Marion people a
rate for their mineral.
The contract' on the Enterprise is about
finished. The raise to the No..5 has been
completed, and but twenty-feet''more- remains to be driven in the No. 1. The
contractors have made good money.

Washington, April 21.—An unexpected  delay  has  occurred   in   the   negotiations   toward     the   Alaskan    boundary
modus vivendi. which makes   the   immediate   future   quite   problematical. •   Kx-
tended  conferences on   the subject were
held today, the result being far from  encouraging.      The     principal     difficulty
arises from the necessity of dealing with
Ottawa as  Avell  as  London.    This dual
negotiation causes great delay iind   complications.     At   the  outset  the   United
States proposed a modus viArendi  with a
temporary line along certain peaks.   The
British   ambassador forwarded, this   to
London iind Ottawa-.    The Canadian officials then proposed changes   in  the  line,
and after considerable delay the authorities in Loudon approved of  the  changes
proposed by  Canada.    It  is  not stilted
what  the  respective lines are, but they
are  sufficiently  apart  to make it quite,
unlikely that any  immediate agreement
can   be reached,  even  of   a   temporary
nature, as to the boundary.    -

There have been rumors iu  circulation
for a month past that the Kettle   River
Valley Ibiilway charter  would  meet the
same treatment in  parliament  this year
that it   met   last  year,   that   is,   that;   it
would be defeated if the application was
pressed.     It    was    said    that" any   influence ■    that       the       Grand       Trunk
railway had would not be used, as it Avas
last year,   in   favor of  the  charter.    It
Avas also'said  that the Great Northern,
the raihvay tliat is now the owner of the
Corbin  roads, had   patched   up  a   truce
Avith the Canadian  Pacific, the terms of
the   truce   being  that  if  the  Canadian
.Pacific would keep out of Eastern  Washington   that the .Great-Northern Avould
keep out ot the Boundary Creek  section
of Southern   British  Columbia.     There
'Avas probably some truth in all these ru-
'niors.    The Great Northern  has decided
to  buikf into the  Republic district by
AA'ay of the  San   Poil route, and not by
way of .-Marcus  or  Northport.    Whether
this decision is caused by the result of an
agreement Avith the Canadian  Pacific or
from knowledge  that  parliament Avould
not grant the Kettle River charter is the
A gentleman who is undoubtedly

V The , mine OAvners and business men
ofthe Kettle River country Avill uoaa- get
a taste of doing business Avith one rail-
Avay, and the';,'taste' Avill be as bitter as
gall. No other, section of Canada has
been so unfairly: treated. And that it
has beenunfairly treated is oAving largely
to the action taken. last year by the
boards of trade of Vancouver"and Aric-
toria, backed up by the Ar6tes of the
members of ijarliament from the Coast.

the tarilT here discriminating against
American trade, continue to exercise the

circles. In the legislature, Mr.
Burke, leader of the representatives, voiced this feeling, denouncing the
discrimination against America, and urging against ib that the threatened retaliation on the part of the United States

The men who make their livlihood nt

which, the local tailors make is that
Stevens.is not a tailor, biit a drummer
for cheap clothing houses in the east. The
complaint of the local tailors does not
rest here. They recogime.'that they Avill
always be subject to the competition of
eastern drummers, but, in Stevens the
tailor they say they hiwethe competition
of the cheap eastern houses under the
guise of the local merchant, and the
result is .that/people who do not believe
in sending outside the city for their
clothes, are doing so under the misapprehension that SteA'ens the tailor is, a
local tailor and manufactures his clothes
in Nelson.
To meet the condition of affairs, the
heads of the four local tailoring establishments have come together and decided to lay the-whole'.matter' before the
people of Nelson, so that they Avill know
Avhsit they are doing. They point out
that their four shops furnish employment
for fifteen men and three girls, and the
wages paid locally for the manufacture
of clothing amounts to something like
$1300 per month. On the top of this, the
four;establishments pay rent amounting
to oyer .$150 per month, .-which Avith

All the trouble he says is due to English
intrigues. The United States he says
will settle matters honorably and fairly
when they know tlie origin of the riots.
It has been said that because the Canadian Pacilic had an interest in the town-
site of GreeiiAvood that the business men
there were afraid to place themselves on
record on the Kettle River Valley Railway question. On Friday night of last
week the Greenwood Mining and Commercial Association adopted the following resolutions, on motion of Mr. McRae
seconded by Air. Finucane :
Whereas, rail way competition is absolutely essential
to the speedy development of tlio Hnimclnvy Creek country: mid
Whereas, public sentiment, in Hie ilNtriet is iinniit-
moiisly in f.ivorof r.illivity competition; and|
Wlicrea-, nn itpplicution is bein< made lo tlie Dominion pnrliameiit for u charter for I lie construction of u
rallwuy tnive-flliiK :i portion of the lionnkiiry Creek
country, which will be called the Kettle River A'alley
railway; nnd
Whereas, the granting of such charter iind the construction of said raihvay would be of the utmost benefit
to the development, of Southern British Columbia, and is
absolutely necessary to gain the confidence of capital, lo
secure its rapid influx; and would insure the cstabli-h-
nientof the smelting ami mining industries under Ihe
m 1st favorable conditions; and
Wherca-j, the promoters of said railway ure'not asking
any money subsidy, land grant or other bonus;
Therefore be it resolved, that in the ouinion of the
Mining and Commercial Association of the city ot Green-
wood, it is not only desirable, but absolutely essential to
the development of the country that this railway should
be constructed, subject to government control of rates-,
and that tho people arc justly entitled to obtain tho railway competition asked for, and that in order to render
the accomplishment of this possible, the charter applied
for should be granted, thereby rendering an act of justice
to tho people of Southern Jlritish Columbia'.
Be it further resolved, that copies of this resolution be
sent to till members of the parliament of Canada. "
The secretary of the association Avas
instructed to hiiA'e 500 copies of the resolution printed for circulation. At a public meeting held on -Wednesday, Avith
mayor Hardy in the chair, it was decided
to send a delegsite to Ottawa to Avork in
the interest of competitive raihvay facilities for the Boundary Creek district, and
W. S. Keith was selected as delegate.
The adjourned meeting of the retail
merchants was held last night for tlie
purpose of "receiving the report of the
committee appointed, at the meeting held
on Monday night, to secure signatures to
the agreement to close all places of*business at seA'en o'clock each evening except
Saturdays, and the nights preceding holidays. The folloAving business firms were
represented at the meeting: Ficd Iiwine

cfc TitsAvorth, T. J. Scaulau, Nelson Furniture'Co. .
T. Morley Avas elected chairman, and
Fred liwinp secretary of the meeting.
The 'chairman reported -that-the signatures of all the retail merchants of .Nelson had been secured except those of tAvo
grocery firms, two harness firms, and the
'druggists. y     .    "„
Jj. Ilyde, representing the firm of Hyde
cfc Titsworth, who had refused'tosign the
agreement, explained the'position of his
firm ' iu regard to the matter. lie said
that they objected to the movement because they made a specialtyLof dealing in
fruits. The express - from . the south
reached their store between six and seA'en
o'clock, and the bulk of their fruit trade
Avas between seven and, ten .o'clock. He
suggested that his firm be alloAved to
keep their fruitL department' open after
seven o'clock and to take orders for
groceries to be delivered next morning."'
This propositi the grocery firms present
looked upon as being equivalent to selling groceries after seA'en o'clock -and
would not agree to it. it was finally decided- that—si— eoniinittec-made-up-of-M—

The Output May be Doubled.
George "YV.   Hughes,  manager  of   the
Idaho mines, avIio was   iu Nelson  yesterday, is one of the best posted mine managers in the Slocan.    He says that if there
is no stoppage of  work   through  the enforcement   or   non-enforcement   of   the
eight-hour Ijiav, or no  disarrangement of
the present tariff  regulations the  mines
of the Slocan will double last year's output  this  year.    More,  that at  no  time
since he has been in the Slocan. has there
been more enquiries made by eastern and
old country parties for mines.    This coming from so consei'A'ative an   operator indicates  that  this part of  Kootenay will'
be   fairly   prosperous   this   year.      Mr.

The promoter ol' bubble i-onipanics wo  have ahvays with us. This ingenious and  veracious gentleman, it is true, never  leaves us entirely, and a long familiarity  with his ways ami works has convinced  us that the light against him which the  Engineering and Mining .Journal has so  long maintained, can never be given up  entirely. So long a.s human nature is  credulous and the prospect of making  money without labor tin attractive one,  the fake company will.find victims, who  will not take warning. In times like  these, the promoter of doubtful schemes  is especially in evidence, aiid while the  spirit of speculation is strong, and money  for investment .abundant, he is able to  ���'secure attention from many whom ho  could not reach in ordinary times. This  class includes a number who tire reasonable and ordinarily cautious men, and  who ������may be benefitted by _a timely  warning.  ���Just at present the rapid increase in  the price of copper and in the prevailing  boom, in-copper shares,' in the Boston a-nd  in the foreign markets have made copper  stocks ti favorite investment, find especially attractive to buyers of mining  shares, and the copper vein is being  worked accordingly. It is not possible  to go at length into all the statements of  the prospectuses and advertisements  Avhieh crowd our-desks. . These all have a  certain family resemblance: references to  the prosperity and heavy dividends of  the Calumet <fc Hecla, the United Verde  and,a few other noted copper companies  constitute the bulk of the'document", fol-  ,lowed .by a A-ery little vag'uo information  ���or misinformation���about- the special  "company in q.uestion, and often by claims  Avhieh to the mining men are so evidently ridiculous as to establish" tlieir falsity  without further investigation. But these  documents are not intended for tho man  avIio knows anything of mining ; they are  for that section of the public Avhieh is  not informed, and the less that readers  know,, the better" for the purposes of  those who write and issue the documents.  A favorite plan is to aA'oid all accurate  description of the property itself, aud to  base its claims upon its neighborhood to  some Avell-known mine, wliich, if is assumed, will assure the A'alue-of the new  property.

Others of: which tlie sftine  assertion cannot be niade with certainty,  are .atleast extremely dpfibtftil, and will  Tf'B^trWriipn^TexpeTiX!i'ttire of money to  prove theli' valine���-if they have any"���and  there are few o*rJuone havhrg sufficient  iinportance td iiidnce any mining man of  ordinary pi'udence to expend, any considerable Sum to develop and prove them.  Tho fact is that scarcely any copper'  properties Af known vrilue are oil the  mai'kjet; the few Avhieh Avere obtainable,  lilivc been taken up by eonlpanieS' Or individuals, who are in the business aiid!  are disposed to hold them, for tlieir own  ad .vantage. Copper properties do not go  begging nowadays, and we huiy >'����k assured, that if the stocks Of coijper coiii-  pitilies are olTered Hi out-of-the-AVay  places, and at all sorts of prices, they are  so offered because they haVe no A-alue,  and the owners are only anxious to unload them upon too confiding buyers. "  We have hardly space here to give a  list .of- all tlie companies of doubtful  A*alue, which are now before the public;  but it may be Avell to mention a few conspicuous instances, and to refer to a feAV  prospectuses which need criticism, to say  the least. Perhaps the most conspicuous  offender in the list is the Spenazuma  Gold Mining and Milling Company of  Arizona, Avhich,Ave are informed, is disposing of stock through its agents among  Connecticut farmers, iii the towns along  the Hudson river and in other places,  wliich are not likely to contain parties  having information about mines.. This  company's prospectus claims "a A'ein one-  half mile in width, and two miles in  length, every foot of which is in gold,  copper and silver"; and elsewhere a vein  which, "opened at a depth of seven feet,  ores running $4000 in gold per ton,  eighty-four pel' cent copper, and' 200  ounces in silver',���statements Avhieh are  absolute nonsense, and manifestly intended to deceive.    In  this  case,  more-  j-eady '-said, do not as a rule, attempt  mUcll to appeal to that clasSi "They seek  rather to get money from the fal-iner, the  clerk with a little saved, and others, who'  limy be disposed to speculate in; a small  Avay Avith tlie hope. o�� a Ikrgb return.

Dated this 21st day of April, 1899. '  ' April 22]  over, wo Iind   these assertions supported  liy   the   signatures  of   "well-known   exports,"  of whoso   names, in   a somewhat  extended    experience,    we     have   never  heard, and witli whom   wo axe unable to  correspond,   bec.-uise letters   to their  addresses are   returned with the post-of'lice  mark "not found.'"    A   letter from   ji   reliable correspondent which will be found  in   another  column,-   describes a   recent  visit to this property, and from his statements it is quite evident that there is no  demonstrated value iu the property, and  most probably none at all.    The building  of a worthless mill is  evidently intended  only to impress stockholders iind to make  a. show before those   whom the. company  has   invited   as   representative   men    to  visit it.    We may'mention,  by the way,  that the company .-has sent two' or three  parties  of A'isitors   to impress   intending  buyers, but has  apparently taken  A'ery  good care that   there shall be no experts  among them.  Just at present, Arizona, seems td be a  favorite ground for these Avi Id-cat companies, and especially for that class Avhieh  are trading on the reputation of established mines. One conspicuous offender  of this class is the Copper King of  Arizona, AvJiich has advertised extensh'e-  ly and has scattered prospectuses and  circulars all over the country. This company is trading on its similarity in name  and the neighborhood of its claims to the  Copper Queen mine, although the oAvners  of that and other properties had long ago  prospected the district thoroughly, and  would certainly have taken up any claims  of ''value had they existed there. This  company not only trades dn the similarity of names, but illustrates its circulars  with A-iews of the extensive buildings of  the Copper.Queen, thus attempting a deliberate fraud upon the readers.  We Iind other instances of trading on  name and proximity, Avithout going outside of Arizona, and although in these  cases avo have not been able as yet to  make the necessary investigation, to  prove their worthlcssnessV they are at  least destitute of all proven or developed  values, and at the A'ery best offer to the  buyers ; of their' stock gambles bj* the  wildest kind. There* is also the presumption that the neighboring companies  which are operating on a large scale  would not leave A'aluable properties  which they couUMima'o easily secured for  themselves at*the slight expense of,locating and a little exploration and assessment Avork. In this class, Ave have the  Arizona, Copper Syndicate, Avhieh has  claims *at Clifton near the property of  the well-known Arizona Copper Company: and a whole group���the United  Verde, Jr., the United Verde Extension  and the Val Verde���avIioso only distinction is that they are near W. A. Clarice's  well-known United Verde mines.  Space forbids us to continue the list  longer at present, although avc hope to  return to the subject Avith still more detail hereafter. Actual investors, with  mouVey to put" into property, aiid some  Jvhowledge kikl experience of mining iii:-.  A'estnients Avill not I^qiiire inuch fui'ther  caution against the wildcats. These  J:^^.k-e^cdlhpa!^ies,=hoA\*e;vel���,=a,'5-\ve=have==al^=  are disposed to gamble and are Aviiling to  run the risk, instead of putting their  money into fake stocks, Avhere they are  sure to lose in the end, they had much  better use it in betting on horse races,  playing poker, or bucking against a faro  bank, where they will tit least get some  excitement and "fun" for their money,  with a better chance for getting it back ;  though Ave wish it to be understood that  we are A'ery far from recommending these  demoralizing investments.  A   WONDERFUL   NECKLACE.  What  is considered by jewelers to be  perhaps   the  most   remarkable diamond  necklace iu the world,  and a triumph of  the diamond setters art, says a New York  paper,   has just   been   completed   iu this  city   by  Charles F.  Wood ifc Co., wholesale diamond   dealers of   1 Maiden   lane.  It is asserted that   there is   not only not  such "-mother in the world, but that if an  attempt were made to duplicate its perfection it would require fifteen or twenty  years' time iu which   to do so.    It is not  the abnormal   size, weight  or number of  the stones that constitute this necklace's  peculiar A-alue and  beauty, for there are  many necklaces which excel it in each of  these particulars, but it is  the fact that  eA'ery stone is a, gem of the choicest quality and  absolutely  matches every other  one.    The necklace, as it rests in its case  encircles closely a center piece, six inches  in   diameter,  and  the   diameter   of the  necklace itself, at the  center line of the  stones,  is Of  inches.    It contains forty-  seven  stones, Avliich vary in   size  from  front to back in perfect graduation, from  diameters of 7-10 inch, Avith Aveights of  7 carats,  to diameters of 5-16 inch and  weights  of  2]-  carats.'   The   necklace is  worth   at  retail   between $125,000   and  $150,000.  About tAveh-e years ago the largest  handler in the Avorld of diamonds in the  rough Avas instructed to begin the collection of stones for this necklace. This  dealer is iu London, and nowhere else  could any one be found through whose  hands enough diamouds "would pass in a  generation from which to make such a  collection. The instructions to the dealer Avere that every stone must be of the  grade known in the trade as a gem, that  the color must be, blue-white and each  one capable of being cut into the perfect  LUMBER  form to develop brilliancy and fire. The  collection of the stones was begun at  once and it Avas not until six months ago  that the last stone of the lot was picked  out in the rough. Then the Avhole lot  Avere sent here, where they Avere cut and  mounted. Although there Avas no requirement that this should be so, every  stone,as it happens, came from the same  African mine, and this, no doubt, helps  to give them the evenness of effect which  is one of tlie most remarkable traits of  the necklace. This is assured also by the  cutting of the stones, for iu each the  same angles are found, with the same  number of facets, the same comparative  sizes of girdle ancl table and heights from  girdle to table and point.  One of the chief expenses in producing  the circlet lay in the cutting of the gems  to the exact sizes required. The largest  stones were, of course, all cut to the  largest size that they would afford, but  as the required size graded down it was  not uncommon for a stone that if used  separately "'might haA'e cut 5i or 0 carats,  to be cut clown to 5 carats. It is estimated that Avhile the dealer Avas gathering the stones in the rough he handled  from $10,000,000 to $12,000,000 Avorth of  diamonds from the same mine and that  he handled altogether about* $33,000,000  of diamonds, allot' Avhieh Avere scanned  for stones for this one necklace.

Costs have been taxed in the appeal of
Larsen &, Co. vs. Potter at $70.8:5. In
tliis case a workingman named Potter
sought to recover $21 wages from the
contractors of tlie Nelson & Bedlington

hired him. Tlie case was tried at Creston

judgment for the amount. An appeal
was taken by the contractors. County
court judge Forin allowed tlie same and
costs Avere given against Potter. His
attempt to collect $21 in wages therefore
cost him $70.85.
