 FAST TRAIN SERVICE BETWEEN  NELSON   AND   WINNIPEG.  T. A. Gregg, who for some months  has  been engaged in getting up a descriptive  publication, to be issued shortly, treating  of   the    attractions    and   resources   of  Alberta and eastern British  Columbia a  places  for  settlement,  and  also  for tin.- ��/v  the purpose of furthering   the  development of inter-provincial   trade, told The  Tin mine yesterday that it was  reported  along   the  line  of  the Crow's Nest Pass  railway that a daily mail and   passenger  train  service  would  be  inaugurated  in  about  a  mouth.     About  SOU men were  busily employed along the line in perfecting   the   roadbed   and   putting things in  shape for this traffic.    So far as we could  learn the intention is to run a  passenger  train through from Winnipeg to  Nelson,  reducing the running time between the  two  points  from  a  day  to a day and a  half  over  the  present  daily  service by  way  of   Revelstoke.     There will  be no  one-night  stands  on   the  journey as at  present.     Instead  of laying  over for a  night at   Cranbrook, passengers will be  carried   .through'   to Kootenay Landing  direct.      The      great      freight     trallic  which    the    road    has     known     since  taken     over     from     the     contractors  kept    back    the     work'    of     ballasting, but recently steam shovels have been  put at work on different sections of the  line and such defects  as 'resulted  from  settling are being rapidly remedied. Much  trouble has been met in the way of mudslides in the Purcell range, but the track  has been kept clear and  passable and as  soon as the  effects'-of  the  spring  thaw  pass aAvay there will be no more difficulty  of this kind, as the cuttings in which the  slides have occurred will be widened and  similar   occurrences   prevented    in   the  future.    As  the  now train  service Avill  furnish rapid.-transit from Winnipeg to  Nelson it is likely to attract the bulk of  the travel   into   Kootenay and,  Nelson  must benefit largely thereby.     The daily  mail service in itself "will be a great gain.  The   freight   schedules    applying    to  trallic  between  Alberta   and  Kootenay  .   Avhieh were issued about the first of the  year have been further modified  to meet  the requirements of and to encourage as  much as possible the increasing trade in  products   from   Alberta   westward, and  Alberta shippers are placed  in an advantageous   position   thereby.       Since   the  opening of the railway  the  demand  for  Alberta food stuffs and   products of the  farm in  British  Columbia  have  greatly  increased, and dealers and shippers as far  north   as  Edmonton   are  encouraged to  hope for a greatly expanded trade within  a few years.    There will be  less;thought'  of shipping beef* to Great Britain in the  future.       Some '.large' firms' of..- cattle'  , dcalcrs���suchas Gordon ��fc Ironsides, whose  - interests'" are   largely VM-mitoban,   may  -continue to? look -.across  the ocean  foi"  their market, but the mixed "farming class  of Alberta and thesmall'rancliors, finding  a near and   profitable ..market for their  stuff in southern British  Columbia may  be expected to do all they- can to  serve  tliat   market.    As it-is   this* trade has.  served to bring better'times than Alberta,  has known and British Columbia has had  the  advantage of comparatively cheap  supplies.    This has furnished  an  object  lesson   in   inter-provincial   trade   which  will not be without its effect in the east.  where these matter.^ ha ve been suffered  to rest in  abeyance while  agents   were  sent abroad to find "markets for products  which  could  have'  been profitably  disposed of at Uqme.

Associated Press.  Cincinnati,  April  2(5.���A letter writ-  ton by rear-admiral Kautz to his cousin,  Mrs. Charles Lindley of Cincinnati, has  just been public  by the  recipient.    Ifc is  dated March 23rd, and is in the easy Arein  of   a  relative's-private  correspondence.  In the letter he says:   "You  will  probably read a lot of stuff about me in  various  newspapers,  but 1  can  assure you  that I am all right and that 1 haA'e done  nothing that I nor  my friends need be  ashamed of, unless it is the making of a  king,  Avhieh  I  am  obliged  to do .today.  But lie is a A'ery inoffensive sort of a fel-  Ioav���a native 19 years of age. He wears a  French ''admiral's   cocked   hat,   but   no'  shoes or stockings or trousers.    Still, considering the horrid weather, he looks very ���  Avell in this climate; but I hardly think he;  would look.very'well on  Fourth  street,>  Cincinnati.    I  am not a king here, but  just plain boss of the ranch. The German  consul had*.that, position  up to myar-  rival,"but since then he has been a very  silent partner.    I am very much  afraid  he doesn't like me.    In fact I am  not at  all popular here with-the Germans, but  I am all light with the English,-and hope,  to pull through Avitli them.    I  have  no  doubt of being sustained by the government in "all I have done."  Washington, April 20.���The publication of admiral Kautz's,letter, referring to  his position at Samoa, caused absolute  consternation at the navy and state departments at the first reading, but there  avlis soon 'shown-a disposition to minimize  the affair because it Avas clearly "apparent  that the letter was nothing more than a  strictly private communication passing  betAveen the members of the same family.  Nevertheless, coming as it does so close  upon captain Coghlan's indiscretion, and  folloAving the publication of judge Chambers' letter to his brother, criticizing  the Germans in Samoa, the opinion was  held that admiral Kautz's letter could  not have other than a harmful effect  upon the relations between the United  States, and Germany. The Jetter was  brought to the attention of the president,'  and some sort of a.reminder maybe, sent  to Kautz to be more careful in his correspondence. In German official quarters'  the letter Avas not "treated very seriously,  and'there, avlis. no indication that = the  German:.authorities would take cognizance of it; The spirit of fun in the letter  appealed to -some, of the. diplomatic  offieiais, avIio laughed heartily , over  Kautz's description ofthe young king's  makeup, aud. this amusing "feature largely  offset any irritation which might hitve  been felt OA'er the criticisms contained  iu the letter. The impression prevailed,*  hoAvever,' that the navy department  probably Avould deal with the indiscretion   in   such a   Avay   as it  deserved.  The case of, captain Coghlan may be  considered as finally closed. The German  ambassador called at the White House  this afternoon and had a conference on  the subject with the president of such a  satisfactory nature, that the matter avlis  re"ga��rded as settled. The -president explained the 'Course the navy department  had tiikeiiL iii administering a 'reprimand  to captiuu Coghlan. It Avas also pointed  out that the officer's explanation of the  ih=cideiTt^tWtlti=tlnft'=illif  been much exaggerated,  PREDICTS THAT ANOTHER BLOODY  STRUGGLE   MUST   TAKE   PLACE.  had"  \Ttterances  On the part of  the ambassador there avlis every disposition to deal as lightly With the matter as  possible, and not to permit it to become  a source of friction. During the day the  navy department administered to captain Coghlan the reprimand' Avhieh had  been determined upon. This was in the  form Of a letter from secretary Long to  the officer. It is stated at the state de^  partmoiit that the Jotter Ayill not be  made public before the officer lias received it, and probably uot then.  Associated Press.  New York, April  2(5.���At   the New  Jersey annual conference of the African  Methodist church, Avhieh opened in Jersey  City today, bishop  Alexander  Walters,  D.D.,   bitterly   denounced    the   Georgia  iyncliings aiid made some startling 'assertions.    He said: " "It is generally_believed  by the fair-minded that if C. D. Hose did  kill Cranford, it was to avenge the killing  of five colored men by a mob said tohtiAre  been led by Crsmford at Palmetto, March  13th."   After referring to the -newspaper  statement that Hose did not outrage Mrs.  Cranford, the speaker continued:    "The  lynchings of kite have been severely con-  i demned by the jDress becjiuse they AA'ere  -not the outcome of the crime of rape, for  which   crime   lynching  is   usually condoned ;"��� both ���'���black-, and .'white .knowing  this, the people of that section Avho have  regard for the reputation of the south  raised the "race"  cry  in  orderVto  saAre  .���themselves''from everlasting" disgrace and  the   baser sort   to  justify. their  aAA'ful  crime.   Ere another fortnight shall pass  ; over our heads this subtle scheme Avill be  laid, bare to the  world."    This   is   the  ignis fatuus that is leading us  on  to another bloody struggle.    It is  the  southern Avhite man's subterfuge to satiate his  Implacable hatred for the  negro.    If the  '���"good .white people of the north,  disillu-  'sionised, do not put. a stop to this SAveep-  ;ing tide', qf-lawlessness, it AA'ill not be long  (before they "will be again called upon by  ;a God'-of justice to giAre their best blood  to pay the penalty of the  crimes of the  ;south.    The reality of our trouble is race  hatred.     Some years ago it-was thought  as the negro became intelligent and eul-  .tured this race prejudice .would disappear, but, alas, iii  some  sections of the  .'country it has only intensified  this feeling.    The   passage   of   "Jim  Crow"  car  Iliavs iu several. of the southern states,  the     disfranchisement   of   negroes    regardless     of     qualification,    the    shutting   of   them   from   the   hotels   and  restaurants and places of amusement are  all  manifestations  of race hatred.    We  are censured as a race for not exhibiting  -mainly qualities.   Wo are considered "impudent niggers," if Ave presume to assert  our manhood.     We are truly bctAAreen  the upper and, nether millstones.    I have  come to.the,conclusion that: nothing but  manliness and resistance  o:i tlier part of  ,the Afro-Americans themselves will stop  these   atrocities.       President McKinley  and the federal government have-, shown  themselves impotent to convict the murderers of federal oflicials.    The. gOA'ernors  of-certain states  in the south 'have  ac-.  knoAvledged their inability to protect the  colored  citizens.      In   the   name'of -almighty God, what are Ave to do but fight  and die?    We haA'e pledged 'ourseh'cs in  raceorganizationsand ecclesiastic councils  to do all. in  our  poAver  to improve the  ' morals of'our people, but avc are  forced  to confess that the example set us by the  Avhites of Palmetto is hot encouraging.

AVell did Thomas Jefferson say before  the conflict, in speaking of the injustice  of Avhites towards the blacks: 'I tremble  for the future of my country when I remember that God is just.' "  YMIR    MINING   AND    LOCAL   NEWS.  Special to The Tribune. ���  Ymir, April 20.���Another company has  been successfully formed in connection  Avith Ymir properties called the -Rossland:  Ymir Mining & Milling Company,''Limited, with a capital of $500,000 in.two  million shares of .25 cents'each.. The property is the Bruce group, situated on Jubilee mountain, and consists of the Bruce,  Cohrille, Canadian, Simcoe and Hope mineral claims. A very large ledgeis traceable through the 'property and assays  high values." As soon as-an engineer's  report can be obtained and the property  surveyed extensive development Avork  will be commenced. All those interested  in the group are pioneers of Ymir, and it  was through the instrumentality of Eugene Croteau of this toAvn that the deal  has gone through.

The AA'iitei'AA'orks company expect the  shipment of supplies for the installation  of the plant about  the  middle of May.  Quite a number of Ymir residents avIio  have been spending the winter elseAvhere  are returning. Frank Davey, M. E., left  today on a business trip to Republic. A  lot has been purchased on Oak street,  Avhieh lies on the east side of the Salmon  river, for residential purposes, and the  .order for the .building is already Lin��� the  hands of the-architect.' It lias been rain"-'  ing steadily all day, but the gretit consolation is that it*is tending to make the  suoav disappear fast. One case of .drunk  and- disorderly before A.  B.  BuckAvorth,  Last month the department of public  works   at   OttaAA'a   instructed   William  Henderson of Victoria, inspector of public   buildings for   British   Columbia,  to  proceed to Rossland and Nelson  and  secure, if possible, suitable sites for public  buildings and obtain data as to the  cost  of  labor and  building    materials.     Mr.  Henderson visited both  towns, and  left  Nelson for Victoria on Monday last. This  avou Id indicate that the missionary work  done by the delegates avIio Avent to OttaAva  last year, backed up by the unceasing efforts of Mr. Bostock, M. P., has borne fruit,  for Mr. Henderson's  instructions  bear a  date prior  to any action iu tho  matter  taken this year by either the board of trade  or the city council. While Mr. Henderson  did   not  secure a site  for the building,  sites  that  Avere  declared  suitable were  selected, and all  the  necessary data regarding prices of labor and material were  obtained from thoroughly  reliable  men.  The following sites, in the order named,  are alone deemed suitable, provided they  can be obtained at reasonable figures :  (1)  The Giffin lot,75 by 120feet,atthecorner of  Vernon and   Ward   streets.     (2)     The  Houston lot, 50 by 120 feet, at the corner  of Baker and Josephine streets.    (3) The  tAvo lots, 100 by 120 feet, at the southeast  corner of Vernon and Stanley streets. (4)  The lots, 871 by 120 feet, at the  northwest corner of Victoria and Ward streets.  All this goes to show that the government may make appropriations for pub-  lie buildings at Nelson aud Rossland this  year; but no appropriations Avill be made '  until  Mr.   Henderson makes his report.  The regular estimates haA'e been brought  doAvn in the house, but there is nothing  for public buildings in British Columbia,  except for a drill shed at Vancouver.  LOCAL   NEWS   AND   GOSSIP.  J.'

When'the  minister of militia Avas told that there  was no neecLpi' troops in that country) a  leading Ontario Liberal member of parliament Avas present, and remarked after  the minister had left, "that is the kind of  " talk that ministers do not like to hear,  " but it is the kind of talk they should  " heai1 more often." The trouble is, there  are too few members of parliament independent enough to tell ministers Avhat  they believe, for fear of offending them.

Were the .water and  light systems in NelsoU operated by private, companies, Would  the changes Uoav  contemplated by the city be made?   Not  unless the companies Avere managed by  imbeciles.      The   city   engineer   in    his  report to the eoinicil says that last winter  there was not more than .'30.0.000  gallons  of Avater flowing through the Anderson  creek fluine in twenty-tour- hours; but he  d'oeS not say how  Uiuch   of  that water  was    ���actually     vised     by     cOnsumei's.  Will the city  engineer  give the  council  aji estimate of tlie A\*ator that Was wasted  in Nelson last winter because of imperfect  plumbing  in  dwelling  houses   and  stores?     When   Ave   say  imperfect   we  mean  connection's*:that AA'ere not frostproof.    It is safe to say that one-half of  tlie total connections in tiie tcrn-ii were  imperfect last Avinter, and  it is also safe  to  say that  no steps .have since   been  taken to make them perfect.    The city  engineer does not tell the council hoAAr  much A\'ater was lost between Andei'sbn  creek and the reservoir through  leakage  in the flume.    Were the city engineer to  make a report on these  points, he, eAren,  might   be   convinced   that  the   present  supply     is     ample    i'or     the    requirements of a town of 5000 inhabitants.   By  the way, the assessment  for the current  year has  been   made.    Has the  assessor  t.iken tbe census that  he is  required to.  take wider the Municipal Clauses Act ?  Or has it been taken and been suppressed, in order that the city engineer's  estimates shall make the required show.-'  ing so as to delude the people into voting  that $30,000?

CURRENT RATE OE INTEREST PAID  THE   WOKRY   THAT   KILLS.  "Worry' kills," says a great specialist  in brain' diseases, "as surely as ever gun  or dagger did.". This, it is claimed, has  beeii established beyond doubt by the  i investigations of ueurlogists. We all  know that "worry embitters life to such  an extent as to rentier the final blow  often merciful, but few men or Avomen  know how much ib lies within themselves  to keep down and vanquish this foe to  life and happiness.  I never hear a woman declare that site  Avorries constantly���and how often I hear  it ���Avithout a desire to exhort her to get  rid of a vicious and dangerous habit at  once. Kor worry, be its excuse Avhat you  ���will, is largely a, mental habit which can  be controlled very materially, by the exercise of constant 'vigilance and strong  Avill power, when one has learned how to  fight this hidden but deadly enemy.  "But some must worry," said tlie careful Martha, Avhen 1 said something like  this to her the other day. "If you don't  worry some one else Avill have to worry  for you. It is the same as the people  who toil not nor spin. Some one has to  toil or spin or is toiling and spinning for  them iioav."  "No," I. argued, "it is not the same as  work this Avorrying. There is nothing so  good as work in all the world, for men  and for avoiiicu, and 1 pity those avIio  have it all done for them, but there is no  excuse for Avorry."    =  By worry J do not mean���no ono means  ���thought and care for one's own affairs  .and the good and Avell being <)f" others.,  c.rTIiere is a time, though, when- such  thoughts degenerate, into'worry." When  |- you have given- undivided attention to  thebusiness or care which belongs to you  for a reasonable time; when you* have  turned a matter over and looked,at it on  all sides, and your mind is decided or-un-'  decided what to tliink or =do, and when  the' same thoughts,, suggestions and  images constantly reappear, without any  neAV light" or increased understanding,  worry Juts begunj and then and there  must be put down with a strong-hand.  #that .jJj.ean:asleaail^itorinent���oii^*'Ovei('"jJli,e  ^sinaiisthiif^^  rwRli4riSliIiiigs��&f(- "seryaiTM 'yilip^cpm lVitSii ���  , ^ault&oFcluld^^  'y'u too," smiilT " tyoy, \ Vf0���".

You can feel the cloud of Avorry coming, can't you? If you are where you can  sin, stay at home, about your work, sing  all the old hymns and line, inspiring  songs you know. Sing them word for  word, verse after verso, carefully fixing  your mind upon each word, bustling  about your task as you sing. The Avorry  can't come. It will keep oil' Avhile you  chant and sing and hum. There' Avas  something in that old expression about  whistling to keep tlie courage up. But  if you can't sing, for reasons of your own  or out of regard to somebody else���save  the mark���never mind.  Select some restful poem and learn it  by heart. When the black Avings of  worry begin to loom over you repeat to  yourself your poem, fixing your mind on  it8as you go. Repeat it over and over  again. By and by the Avorry will be  gone. It will got so after awhile that  involuntarily, just by association, the  two will go together, just as the antidote  grows in nature near the pbisouous  shrub, and you will iind, some time, having unconsciousness let the Avorry get at  your mind, your poem going along there  too, quietly and persistently, until your  attention takes hold of it, and then you  are saved for that time. And don't forget the long walk every day, or the out-  of-door play of some kind, no matter  Avhat the weather is.  Worry must be fought with coolness,  firmness and determination. Whenever  it comes it must find something else in  the place it seeks to hold. AVhile you  are among cheery friends or busy at  avork it stays away. Let it find your  mind filled Avith healthful thoughts or  compelling occupations when you are  alone. Let there be no compromise Avith  the enemy day or night and you Avill see  it leave you at last, a discouraged old  fagged-out failure of a worry.  Great .Man "From Maine.  Toronto Telegram. -  .One of the two really great- men of tho  United States is withdrawn from-politics  by Thomas B. Reed's resolve, to devote  the remaining years of his life to the  praotice^of the law in New York city.- A  great and holiest- partisan is Mr. Reed',  and the Republican party Avill not soon  findjiis equal as it leader iii .the house of  representatives. Ifis not, too much to  say that .Thomas Brackett Reed is the  greatost-of all the men from Maine. The  narrow  tariff, specialist^ -Dingley, never  approached the intellectual stature of  Mr. Reed. Nor did James G. Blaine Avith  all his magnetism surpass Mr. Reed.  There AA'as once a Reed boom, and the  speaker was ambitious to be president.  The craze for McKinley snuff ed,Reed out.
