Quietly,  'ralmost gently, upon the anniversary  qf, the death of queen   Victoria's  - {father, the,duke of Kent, the, end  _'', of�� a- career neveivl- equaled by any]  woman in;the world's history, cam<  in asimilar room in Osborne. -���>  The most, respected of all women',]  - living or dead, .lay in a great four  posted bed, a shrunken atom, whose]  "aged face and^ figure r were -a;cruel  ' mockery of a fair girl ewho inV 1837J  began..; - to . -rule "--over-^rEngland.  Around her were -gathered almostl  ' every descendant"of her line. 'Well  within view of her dyirife eyes hung  a portrait of the prince consort. It]  was he who designed the room and  every part of the castle. In scarcely  audible words the white haired!  bishop of Winchester prayed be  side her as he had often prayed]  with his sovereign, for he was her  chaplain at Windsor.- With bowed]  heads, the imperious ruler of Ger  many, and the man who is .nowl  Icing of England stood. The woman  who has succeeded. the   little, old  - queen, the princes and those of less  _=rthan r6yaLdesignationj_listened__to  the bishop's ceaseless, prayer.    Six]  o'clock passed and the bishop con'  tinued his intercession.   One of the]  younger children asked a  question]  in childish treble and was   immedi  ately silenced, the   women   of   the]  women  royal family sobbed faintly and thel  men shuffled uneasily. At exactly!  half past six sir James Reid held upl  his hand and the people know that|  England had lost her queen.  The bishop pronounced the bene-]  diction. The queen passed quietly!  and peacefully away. She suffered!  no pain. Those who were now]  mourners went from the rooms.!  The whole world was jarred when!  the announcement came, but in the!  palace at Osborne everything pur-g  sued the- usual course. Down in!  the kitchen they were cooking al  huge dinner for an assemblage thel  like ��� of which has seldom been!  known in England, pnd. the dinner!  preparations proceeded just as .iff  nothing had happened.

An incident!  characteristic of the queen's consideration "for others occurred twog  .day ei'ago, when in one of her inter-]  vals of consciousness she summoned!  to suggest to her dressers, who had!  . been acting as nurses, to take thel  opportunity of getting some fresh!  ai.r Monday afternoon she asked!  that her little Pomeranian be!  brought to her bedside. It was!  feared that the queen was dying,!  and carriages were sent to Osborne!  college   rectory   to bring all the!  " princes and princesses and bishop!  of Winchester to her bedside.   She[  ,-a9ked to see one of her faithful]  servants, a member of her house-!  hold. He hastened to the room but!  before he got there the queen had!  [become somewhat better.  The prince of Wales was^ very!  [much affected when the doctors at]  last informed him that his' mother]  had breathed her   last.   Emperor]  William  himself, deeply affected,]  [did his best to administer to the]  comfort of his stricken uncle, whose]  jnew   dignity   he   was the first-to]  (acknowledge.

He was born on  the 9bh of November, 1841,-and is  therefore,' in - his - sixtieth . year.  ���Should he' have a tithe of the love  and respect shown his lamented  mother, his reign will be successful.  Victoria, the noblest" of women  ' and the- wisest of rulers, is dead,  ��� and-she "will be'-mourned by  millions-of English-speaking people  as they would mourn'the loss of a  mother and by millions more as  they would the loss of a- trusted  friendT-ATa wifeand-motherrshe  will be revered* by wives and  mothers for all'timej'as a queen and  ruler, she set an example that should  be - followed by- all who are  chosen-'to rule or govern their  fellow-men."  He Meant the Big Men.  Toronto Star.  Sir Wilfrid Laurierdid not claim-  in his address at the bar dinner in  Toronto that there were not enough  lawyers   in" parliament, 'although  that is the construction being put  upon   his  words   by most of the  newspapers discussing.the question.  "What he pointed out .was a growing tendency on the part of leading  .men in the profession to avoid parliament, whereas in earlier days the  .man who made a name in law considered ' it   only   natural   that he  should crown his career by serving  the country in her legislatures.    It  ���was f-not numbers of lawyers   he  called for, but quality, and he mentioned the names of men eminent in  law'who hrformer days had served  their country well in parliament, |  and also of some men of today who  lead in their profession and whose*  appearance   in   parliament   would  build up -the character of that as-  . sembly.   But he did not suggest,  ��� as '��� ordinary   men   go, the lawyer  should be nominated in -preference  to editors, merchants, farmers, or  men of any other calling.   No one  can-dispute the fact that it would  be a good thing for the country .if  men of the quality of which our  judges. are made-found their way  into parliament instead of devoting  themselves to the last to the improving    of   their   own   private  NELSON MINES AND MINING  Greenwood's "New 'Smelter.  .    *- '. ���  -Andrew- Laidlaw, manager .of the  Pyritic'Smelter Company.-which is  erecting a' smelter at Greenwood,,  arrived "in Nelson last evening.    He  states that rapid progress has been  made on the smelter and' the company expects to have  the a furnaces1  ready to- blow ��� in about 'February'  15.    -The   work' in    placing    the  machinery is well advanced.   The"  big boilers have been placed." .Some  minor details .with -the connecting  up5of the machinery remain -to- be  completed.'  "The'work   upon the  plant -inside - of   the- building As  rapidly-going^ahead' and.before_the^  end of the month everything.there  will' be completed.   The work on  the flume is ��� well under way and  this will be finished when the plant  is ready to, operate. The heavy high  trussel up which the ore' is to be  hauled-to the smelter <was    completed yesterday and the trackupon  it will be laid at once.  Mr. Laidlaw also stated "that the  general outlook-of- the country --for  the coming-season iis a good one.  Deals are pending on' many- of'the  larger properties-situated-'near -' the  town and they will undoubtedly be  turned - over ' to ' companies' with  large capital 'before''spring. The  parties trying >to-obtain bonds -on  the properties-are of Spokane and  New York.  be made to ��� the workings of "the  Sunset. The ore of the Sunset-will  then be'taken out' through -the  "Wellington. With this arrangement there will be less expense  connected with the handling of  the ore.  Mr. Jeffery also -reports that the  Whitewater property is in fine condition. The work is being conducted in No. o tunnel, and here  eight feet of solid galena has been  exposed. In the other workings a  large quantity of ore has been exposed, and the results from . the  large shipments made- are most  satisfactory.  Concerning the building of a  smelter at Kaslo -Mr. Jeffery said  that much was being done by the  citizens toward this end. Among  the capitalists there 100 shares of  $100 each have been purchased.  They have purchased a 3ite situated  to' the north of the town. } The site  is an excellent one,- provided with a  magnificent water front and _tas  splendid facilities-for water power.  The council has decided to give a  bonus to the company, but how  much it will be has not yet been  decided upon. Mr. Jeffery will  float the company during his'stay  in the east.       Trade Dollar Improves.  -George W. Hughes of Almo, who  is largely interested in the Sunset  and Trade Dollar, situated in Jackson valley about six miles from  Whitewater' was in the city yesterday. He reports- that these 'two  properties- are ��� showing up- well  with "the development -work that is  now being done..- -In ^the- Sunset a  large amount of ore has been uncovered and it contains good* values in  silver. About seven car loads have  been - shipped - and --the returns  obtained- were, high. The "Trade  Dollar is situated- on -the opposite  slope-but is in; the same vein.

Yesterday   city clerk   Strachan  sent out notices to all the members  of the local board of health,  the  board  being composed of all the  members of the city council, that a  meeting   of that   body would   be  held at the city-hall at 4 o'clock this  afternoon.     The   local   board    of  health, although composed of the  members of the council, is an independent body and possesses large  powers0under the health act.   This  afternoon   they will -consider the  annual report of the medical health  officer,   Dr.   LaBau.     His   report,  which   is a very exhaustive  one,  deals   with the condition   of the  health of the city for the past year,  and contains many suggestions with  regard to the safeguarding of the  city in the case of infectious disease ���  or epidemics. The reporfdeals'with  the necessity of water services to.  all parts of the city, -sewer connec-  tionsand garbage removal.   -  The medical - health - officer,. also  deals with the, question of food  supplies and especially with-regard  , to milk. In connection with .this  point he say's :> "Next to'the water'  supply, the milk supply .of the- city  probably has 'the i largest influence  ���on the death rate." - He also states*  ' that the number of deaths which'  occurred in the city during the year  1900 was only 48. This ��� is ~a Very  low death rate, as it is practically  seven deaths per-1000" inhabitants.  The death ratejn the'large American cities is from 18 per 1000 to" 23"  per 1000. ��� .This'certainly* speaks-  well for the"-sanitary - condition of  the city.; The report.also, states  that in the case of. infectious disease the'-"city"has*been freer \v" "  As Nelson is no longer a town,;  but an important' center, there will  be many important matters requiring the serious attention of the  local board- of health. Amongst  the many duties they have imposed  on them is inspection of slaughter  houses, regulation;,of iee.-milk and  vegetable supplies, to prevent the  continuance of the unsanitary conditions and the exposing of unsound food and many other *" matters affecting-the condition of the  health." of the city. >The question of  the disposing of garbage and other  refuge during the year will also be  a matter which will engage their  attention.  . In speaking of the work of this  body,- mayor Fletcher - said last  evening���that���there���were-several  questions of importance that would  have to be considered by them. He  said that at-present typhoid fever  prevailed in nearly every part of  the city, "and" that the council  would at once investigate to find  out where the cause was. He also  intimated 'that there would be a  meeting of the board once a week  uutil the matter could be thoroughly gone into.

BuBine��s  Generally Suspended and a  Feeling of Gloom and SadneBS Pervaded the Community. ���  .The news of the death of Her  Gracious "Majesty the Queen, who  died at 0:45 p. m. at Osborne house,  was flashed over the wires here at  10:30 yesterday morning. It was  at once made public by the C. P. B.-  operators, who telephoned it to the  city hall, when but a few seconds  later the' slow tolling of the city  Are bell told to the public that one  greatly beloved by .every British  subject had passed away..  The effect of the sad news on the  inhabitants of Nelson was something marvelous. For a few moments every one stopped and could  hardly realize what had occurred.  Then a feeling. of sadness and  respect seemed to come over each  one as they thought of the great  and noble .work done by their beloved-; queen:. People gathered in  small knots about the streets and  talked quietly of what her grand  reign and sudden death meant to  the people of the British empire.  The queen's reign has been one  of peace - and prosperity, and she  had become the idol of her subjects.  Everyone paid reverence at the  mere mention of her name.  The citizens of Nelson did much,  which shows that the news was  received here with -deep, heartfelt,  grief. Mayor Fletcher quickly  notified the business population to  observe the rest of the day, and  sharply at 12 o'clock every place of  business was closed and the blinds  drawn." Such a universal closing  was never observed before in the  history of the: city. -Over .thirty  flags-were placed at half mast over  buildings throughout the business  portions .of. "the, city. The city fire  bell and that,of ,the Methodist  church tolled for a long time after  the news had been received.  To show the, grief which pre:  vailed here r the following self-  explaining message was dispatched:  "' ,.'** Telegram of Condolence.-  .NElaSON,.British Columbia, January 22.���To the Secretary bf State  for the Colonies, London, England:  Citizens of- Nelson join the empire  in mourning the loss of our beloved  queen. Heartfelt sympathy to the  royal family at'their loss.  Frank Fletcher, Mayor. ^  " Not only were the places of business- closed yesterday afternoon,,  but the many parties which were to  be held during this and the coming  week have been postponed and a  general observance appropriate to  the occasion will be manifested.  The schools were closed and will remain _o until Friday morning. The  law and court offices were also  closed and the officials of the gov-  ernment-offices-also-observed_the_  occasion.  The windows of several of the  business places were appropriately  dressed. That of Patenaude Bros,  was arranged with the picture of  the queen. in the centre around  which was draped the mourning  colors, black and purple, that are  used on the occasion of the death  of a member of the royal family.  Among other business firms which  dressed their windows in accordance to the occasion were Fred Irvine & Go., W. M. Hunter & Co.,  and T.J. Brown, jeweler.  On the day that the funeral is  held over her majesty's remains appropriate memorial services will be  held in Nelson. It is thought that  the funeral ceremonies will be held  in about three weeks, and if a day  of reverence is not declared by the:  Dominion officials, which is very  likely to be the case, the mayorwill  proclaim such for Nelson. Arrangements will be made to observe the  day in a mariner appropriate to the  occasion. The militia, along with all  organized bodies, including every  secret  society,   will   be, asked to  parade. ' The 'bands will carry  muffled drums-'and the effective  though solemn dead march will be  played. The occasion will be made  a public one.. Rev. H. S. Akehurst,  pastor, of St.'Saviour's church, said  last evening.that he would hold the  English church funeral service with'  the. necessary r alterations on' that  .'day.y."?rY   ~v:7_.y  . The death . "of queen Victoria  .means a. great deal to the law courts  bf the*; British . empire. All - the  documents .which now contains the  .wordsJ.'.'Her.Majesty" will have to  be changed to- "HisYMajesty" and  other alterations accordingly. All  the members of the bar and bench  which hold the title of "Q.C." will  hereafter be termed "K.C." Many  other changes will also have to be  made.  i - ��� ������ ���  A Slocan Seal-Estate Deal.  Thomas.Mulvey, who, along with  W. R. Clements, owns West Slocan  townsite, closed'' a big real. estate  deal yesterday for 275 acres of land  which adjoins the present townsite.  The purchasing price has not been  made public, but it is said to be a  big sum. Their original" townsite  is situated" oh ".the. west side of^'the  river, and is directly opposite Slo-'  can City. It was staked in 1898..  The lots are now selling for $200  each and are rapidly' increasing in  value. It is a magnificent location  and now contains some of the best  residences of. Slocan City. ..The  two portions '.of the townsite are'  connected with two bridges, which  were constructed at a cost of $1000  and $2200. Everything indicates a  rapid growth of the town.
