THE SYMPATHY UNIVERSAL  AND ENGLAND IS PBOPOUNDLY  TOUCHED.  Tributes From all Nations���Those Who  Will   Attend  the  Obsequies-  Other   Notes. *  Cowes, l9le of "Wight,-January  25/���So hampered has beeu the arrangements at Osborne that the  body of queen Victoria still lies in  the'bedroom where 'she died,  elaborate decorations necessaf  turning the dining room in Oa  house into" a chapel occupied so  much time that although the royal  household waited hour after hour  for the flrst private service it was  found impossible to hold it yesterday.' ' All being, well, however, the  ceremony will .be ' performed . this  (Friday) morning by the bishop of  Winchester in the presence of king  Edward, emperor Williarcr and al-  ��� most every member of the"royal  family. The coffin was brought to  Osborne last.eveniug and was taLon  through the queen's" T private gate,  ���_- whieh had not been previously used  since her death. '_ Emperor William  was the first, person, to see it. , The  coffin containing tlie,body will be  transferred this - morning to the  -    dining room. -   . " > _��� ,-  , -Are-- The dais1, is, wreathed --with'^royal'  standards   and   on  each  side   are"  great candles. Madonnas by famous  " ��� painters   hang   from   the   draped  walls."    In one corner magniflcient  wreaths from all parts of the world  crush  their blossoms one-against  the other.     Among these the most  beautiful are from emperor William  and   empress   Augusta"   Victoria.  Around'   the "** coffin ,- chairs    are  arranged for the royal mourners.  Lord Pelham-Clinton authorizes the  statement , that there  will be no  lying i*n_ state. -   However  there is  good reason to believe that many  persons will be afforded the privilege of seeing their dead queen as  she lies in the gorgeously transformed dining room where she will  remain until February 1st.   In the  "YThope  that   this may be the case"  people are already crowding into  Cowes.   If they are disappointed in  this respect they will -at any rate  be rewarded by witnessing a magnificent naval   display.      Yesterday  king Edward replied to thousand of  messages he has received.  To those from rulers and great  personages he replied in person. To  those from minor dignitaries he  commanded his equery,,, to,,return  thanks. A particularly grateful  message went to president McKinley. The new queen moved ceaselessly around.yesterday seeing that  everything should be done in good  order. She refused to allow herself  to be called queen. "Your majesty,"  said one of the entourage, "Your  royal highness, you mean," was the  immediate interruption.  It was chiefly due to queen Alexandria's desire, who carefully designed the minutest details of- the  death chapel, that the first funeral  service was not held yesterday. The  German imperial yacht Hohenzol-  lern is expected to arrive at 4  o'clock this afternoon with emperor  William's suite.' In response to an  inquiry * by the correspondent of  the Associated Press, lord Pelham  Clinton denies the report of emperor William's intention to return  to Germany today.  Arrangements for the Funeral,- '  London, January 25.���It is under-  stoodi^ie body of queen Victoria  will arrive in London on the morning of February 2nd and be taken  across the metropolis to Padding-  ton. Troops will line the streets.  The coffin will be placed on a gun  carriage and draped with flags. On  arriving at Paddington station it  will be transferred for -Windsor,  Anally reaching St. George's chapel  about noon   where a magnificent  funeral service will take place.  London, January 25, 4:80 a.m.���  It is understood that the progress -  of the body of queen Victoria'  through London will be an imposing  military pageant and that members  of the nouses of lords and commons  will be invited to follow the procession. At the same time there  seems to be some apprehension lest  a change of decision,,should omit  the London portion of the.prograin.'  The Daily Telegrapti\ editorially,  claims for London a right- to share  in the obsequies,and declares that  nothing * but 'the deceased's own  wishes should prevent' this. The  funeral has been delayed to enable  all the foreign representatives to  arrive at Windsor in time. It is  announced that grand duke Sergius  and the grand duchess will come  from Russia to be present at the  ceremony. i    -     ,  St. James Oazette on America.  London, ; January ' 24.���England  continues to give evidence that she'  is profoundly touched by the universal sympathy, especially that of  America, expressed- on the death ot  queen Victoria, and papers like the  St. James Gazette, by no means  .noted for friendliness toward,,the  J^M&^ii?' na-ve been among  WS^kW^il9^ince, gratitude.; The  mSial^Mbralff^zette: returns to the  ���'-pmf^Wg&W today and says:/ "In  particular we are! grateful to our  kindred in America. The American  press" is in every way J a popular  press; * It knows and responds' to  popular- feeling aud popular will  and it is unanimous in its tributes,  of sorrow and recognition jof .tlie"',  greatness and goodness of queen  Victoria. ^ Nor-; have her, public  men been ."backward.   Mr: ^White^  law'Reid,"whOD1 we remember" in  London as the'special envoy of the  United   States'' at. the   "Diamond  Jubilee   has     pointed    out    that  the queen had been referred to for  more than a generation as , simply  'the      queen.' _ That     alone.';.is  enough   to fshow.Yhow Americans  regarded her.   All this is well and  should touch us profoundly.   But  it need not .surprise us." -"The nearness of blood and language are not  jL.wisely-,-counted~-on * in a --political*  -.way, but .when a simple feeling is  in question���a simple feeling in a*  matter over which no controversy  can exist���then nearness of blood  and community of language will  surely tell. Beneath'the differences  of government, the differences 'of  place and many other differences of  association, there is  between the  Americans and  ourselves a great  common, heritage.       Shakespeare  and   Milton   are   part  of   it, and  Washington is part of it.   What  Englishman ever thinks of Washington as an enemy ?   We think of  him simply as a great man, a noble  character   of   our   race, and  now  queen Victoria is part of this heritage of race and language."  attended by other members of the  corporation, has read the proclamation in the town ball or market  place:' In Dublin uniformed heralds  proclaimed Edward VII. at-'one of  the castle gaXes in the presence of  lord lieutenant" earl Cadogan and  the, Irish privy, council. An immense assemblage attended the  proclamation.  The colonial office announces that  an immense number of telegrams of  condolence have been receiyed'from  colonial governors and publiebodies  in the colonies. There isa continual  stream of .condolence messages from  "other quarters. '��� Cardinal Vaughan  sends word that he will bring from  Rome a special message' from the  pope to the new. king.

Waldeck  Rosseau, said: "In announcing to  the chamber.the event which has  just closed, a reign in which is  bound up by almost a country's  history, the government wishes to  contribute its tribute to the homage  and respect which the world renders to the,memory of queen Victoria, and gauging the sorrow of  the English nation by the affection  displayed for its sovereign the government bows respectfully -before  the affliction with which England  is stricken." The premier's remarks  were cheered. The president of the  chamber said the chamber joined in  the regrets the government had  just expressed.  As to the Titles.  London, January 24.���The fact  that the court goes into mourning  for a year and the further fact that  the public is enjoined to go in the  deepest mourning lead to the supposition that the coronation will not  occur until 1902. The instruction  that the duke -of York is to be  named in the prayer book "Duke of  Cornwall" seems to throw light  upon the much debated question of  the heir apparent's title. It was  supposed that the title "Prince of  Wales" which belongs only to a  son born of the king would be conferred upon the duke of York by  royal patent, but the Gazette's announcement seems to indicate that  this will not be done and that the  duke of York will henceforth be  known as the duke of Cornwall.

Monson,  at the embassy to express his condolence on the death of queen-  Victoria.           The Proclamation in Ireland.  Duulin, January 24.���The ceremony of proclaming the new king  in Dublin was highly interesting.  Earl Cadogan, the lord lieutenant,  first proclaimed Edward VII ���* at a  full meeting of the Irish privy  council. Then at 4 o'clock p. ra. a  procession was formed" headed by  the lord mayor, which issued from  the gate of the -upper castle and  took up a position on the west side  of the Cork hill, where a great concourse had gathered to witness the  .spectacle. The Athlone pursuivant  in full regalia,; mounted aud  attended by an escort of lancers  preceded the Ulster king-at-arms,  mounted and wearing a brilliant  uniform. Then the lord lieutenant  with several aides rode out of the  gates. The'band played " God Save  the King." The Athlone pursuivant  cried " Oyez, Oyez," and commanded  silence.

Washington, January 24.���The  house today continued the consideration of the naval appropriation bill and practically completed  it before adjournment. The debate  upon the present naval bill has  lacked the interesting and sensational features of recent years.  The fight which the appropriation  committee    waged    against    the  'hydrographic surveys under' the  auspices of' the navy was abandoned this year by the committee  and, several other questions, including armor plate, which usually entail much discussion occasioned no  -comment whatever. The provision  for the increase- of the- navy was  .made the occasion of an interesting  debate upon the length to which  "the building up,of the.navy was to  go and drew from Mr. Cannon,  chairman of the appropriation'committee, a notable statement to the  effect that, when the ships now  authorized ...and to be authorized  had been completed- $320,000,000  would have* been spent' upon" the  new.n'avyand that in.his opinion  the tittie. to stop -will then, have  arrived..-.

He said the queen had acquired  singular ..'authority outside of her  own' empire and universal���respect.  M.

There will be between 19,000 and  21,000carloads for eastern shipment. -  The great bulk of the product is  credited to the citrus belt, which  has Los Angeles as" its shipping  centre. The southern counties will  probably yield a total of between  19,000, and 20,000 carloads. The  northern citrus belt, of which Oro-  ville is the shipping centre, will  produce between 900 and 1000 carloads of oranges. These are the  latest estimates by the Southern  Pacific company.

I  At the flrst meeting of the Victoria city counciron Monday even-  ��ing mayor Hay ward complimented  his councillors' upon the circumstance that they had gone through  tthe municipal campaign without  the loss of a man, and the aldermen  thereupon proceeded to'make assurance doubly sure by appointing a  committee to ascertain the best  method of securing' the election of  mayor aiid aldermen for a longer  period * than one year. Victoria  has aldermen in whom the electors  have confidence, and who, in turn,  appear to have confidence in themselves.  In   the' efforts that   are   being  made by the provincial government  to foster shipbuilding on the Coast,  the mining districts of the interior  have   an   indirect   interest.     The  bonus upon ship building 'is urged  as a means of improving the lumbering   industry of the   province,  which at present is  discriminated  against by United States bottoms,  and it is a sign for encouragement  that the government is beginning  to take notice of the condit-Ton of  provincial industries with a view  to their betterment.   If the government is successful in its efforts on  behalf of the lumbering industry,  there is every reason to believe that  its services may be enlisted in an  effort to secure improved conditions  in the mining industry.   This is an  issue which should hot be lost sight  of.    The conserving to the province  of all advantages pertaining to the  development of its mineral resources  means the creation of new taxable  values and an increasing of present  values, which is in turn the easiest  method of swelling provincial revenues for development' purposes���  the most difficult task that legislators have to face.  new works at Sydney,' Cape Breton,  are   turning   out   an   enormously  greater quantity, while the output  of the-Hamilton furnaces - is - also  greater- and the Deseronto-furnace  is likewise" running steadily.     To  these.must be added,, in-figuring  iipon'the immediate future production, the great Clergue' smelters at  Sault'St. Marie,'that of the Nickel  Steel Company near Hamilton, and  also tlie Cramp works which Charles  D.   Cramp,' of   the Cramp,  Shipbuilding-Company of Philadelphia,  has decided to   erect   at   Colling-  ' wood, and which he says will employ 1200 hands.    Speaking of this  growth the Canadian Engineer says  that^ilwithin the.lnext_year_the  " Canadian iron industry will be  "put upon a par with ,that-of  " Sweden, a country that has taken  " six hundred years of steady work  " to bring its trade to its present  " proportions in point of tonnage."  Such is the fruit of a policy which  sets the public welfare ��� above the  inordinate profits of the manipulators of the natural wealth. What  has been accomplished in other  portions - of the Dominion can be  accomplished! in British Columbia  when its legislators are progressive  enough to approach tlie task iu the  same spirit.  and it has been freely stated tha^the  projectors of ^the Canada:'Northern;  ini'tneii^ policy .of 'avowed? -hostility  to the Canadian Pacific, have some  definite arrangement with 'the Hill  combination.     The clash between  these-rival-interests will - come over  applications for subsidies for the  building  of   what - is    commonly  known 'asthe Vancouver" Victoria  & Eastern railway from the Boundary to the Coast, but into the controversy there will doubtless be injected the differences which have  cropped   up   between   the  Crow's  Nest Pass -Coal- Company and the  Gooderham and Blackstock interests.    Both of these are controlled  by   eastern   Canadian * capitalists,  who in the past   have exerted a  considerable    influence    over   the  Laurier government's following in  Ontario.   To still further complicate matters the Gooderham and  Blackstock   interest �� has   recently  pin-chased extensive coal' fields"'in  the Nicola Valley, which the new  Coast-to-Kootenay   railway is' expected to tap, so that in  addition  to their alleged grievance with the  .Canadian Pacific over freight and  transportation -charges, the Toronto  men have a direct and personal interest in the construction of- the  proposed road.   Taken* - all  in   all  there'is sufficient in the air to warrant a lively session of parliament, -  with good chances for the' conflict  being extended to Victoria.

MORE  MINING LITIGATION  Brigga Versus-Newswander.1  Another case to be heard at the  sitting   of  the 'supreme  court  at  NeWon on February Oth was listed  at the court house yesterday.   The  case is that of Briggs vs. Newswander, the plaintiff being Robert P.  Briggs of Kaslo and the' defendants  Samuel Newswander of Kaslo aud  Charles Doras and Jean Darginac  of Paris, Prance.   It is with respect  to the Cork and   Dublin mineral  claims situated on the south fork of  Kaslo creek,  and ou which extensive operations are being carried on  by -the   Fleutot' syndicate.     The  action arose out of two agreements  mode on June  12th, 1900, between  Briggs and Newswander;    By those  Newswander agreed to purchase the  Two Kidds' and Monarch mineral  claims, covering exactly the same  .ground as the Cork and  Dublin.  Newswander   agreed  to - pay $500  and incorporate a company to take  over the claims and also-to give  Briggs   a   reasonable    amount   of  stock in the   company.     Instead,  however,   of    Newswander'1 doing  this, it,is  alleged that he allowed  the Two Kidds' and Monarch- claims  to elapse  for want of assessment  work... He   then   applied1 in   the  name of Charles r Doras and Jean  Darginac to crown grant the same  ground iu the name of the Cork and  .Dublin mineral claims.  Briggs* brings action alleging  fraud, declariug Newswander - to  have been acting for himself, and  as agent for - Doras ��� and Darginac.  He is asking for $100,000 damages  and'to be declared the owner of a  half interest in the Cork and Dub-  * lin, which he says were substituted  for the Two Kidds and Monarch. ���  A special feature of interest  arises in the^ lawsuit; The 'above  arguments .appear to be in,two  parts, Briggs refusing to sign the  one presented by Newswander,  while the latter refused to sign  charges introduced by Briggs. As  to what agreement was actually  made is to be decided.by the court  from these different documents.  The plaintiff brings his action in  many alternatives, making it probably one of the most intricate law  suits ever submitted for tlie consideration-of this court and one of  considerable importance to the  mining public.  MARCONI'S MARVELS.  London Chronicle.  Signor Marconi has been conduct-  ���ing-a series-of-experiments-in-wh'e--  Ib'bs telegraphy likely to ' have  important, results. These experiments have been made at Poole.  Hitherto the one serious drawback  to wireless, telegraphy, has been  that any one could tap the messages.  This difficulty signor Marconi has  now succeeded in overcoming. .  ....'.:"Hitherto,���' he explained, "the  ether waves used" for wireless  teleg raphy messages; '7 have * .been  sent iii aYprohnacubus fasliiqny that  is to sayj they could be detected "by  any suitable receiver, placed anywhere withintheir radius; of action  of the transmitting station. Moreover, if two . stations in -proximity  happened to send off simultaneous  messages,' the receiving* station  within their, radius would receive  both messages, but they 'would ��� be  j tumbled together, and consequently  would be unintelligible' The  receiving instruments in < my new';  system will respond only���*' to those  . ether Y;w*aves. to; which they* are  tuned.' The possible combinations  of 'tunes' are infinite, and no two;  instruments,   therefore,   can   com-;  .municate*with���*���*���' eachY other unless'  they have first been expressly ar-v-  ranged for; such   communications;!  : So perfect is the new- system that  two messajges sent.off from different  stations can be picked up by one1  wire, and that one wire, passings  through two receiving instruments,  gives to each its proper message,  separate and distinct; and: without  takthg the other message.  "In this way,'' continued signor  Marconi," "it will be possible to  take one particular illustration, for  an 'admiral to communicate at will:  either with the whole of his .fleet  simultaneously,, or with any parv  ticular vessel, and he can do this  even if bis own fleet should be split  y THE  BAffi OF COIMEBCE  �����'      WITH WIHCH 13 AMALGAMATED  ���*&*:.-.������  THE BANK OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.  ... ���*#/   .--���   -  -.��� _________  Imperial Bank of Canada  - -�� HEAD  OFFICE.

The longest distance over which  signor Marconi can communicate  across water is' 100 miles', and he  has now ascertained that the cur-  vature.of the earth opposes absolutely no obstacle, which has hitherto been supposed, to the transmission of messages. Another important development of the system is  the ability to communicate over a  distance of more than thirty miles  by means of a metal cylinder placed  upon an ordinary, "chair. This  will be of immense advantage  in military operations for it  means that the whole apparatus for the secret transmission  of messages can be conveyed upon  a cart from one point of the field of  war to another. As to the possibilities of communication across the  Atlantic signor Marconi's reply was  ^that such-a-scheme_was ___aerely_a_  possibility of the future." "At the  present time," he said, "I am not in  the least concerned with this particular problem." One great commercial advantage, however, will  be that the great ocean liners, except those that cross the Atlantic,  will be able to communicate at almost auy point of .their voyage with  every part of the world. . y        ���  WE HAVE  Improved    Incandescent  Mirror     Globe     Lamps  Now    in    Stock.

Mayor Fletcher presided;; aiid  on calling the meeting to order he  made   a   short   speech   explaining  what   would   be   expected of the  citizens on tlie occasion.   He said  that there would be a parade led  by the members of the Nelson company     of   the   Rocky    Mountain  Rangers.    The opinion' of several  men as to what ought to1 be done  was given- and all agreed .that it  should be a public affair and not  left   to- one- individual    body   or  society.     No   definite   steps   wero  taken as there were no official delegates   present    from   the   various  secret societies, unions or religious  denominations.     Another meeting  will be held at 3 o'clock Sunday  .afternoon in the same place, when  a general  committee  on arrangements   will. be   appointed.       The  various secret societies, all organized   bodies,   religious    denominations, and, in fact, the general pub-  lie are asked to have representatives present, and ifc  is. expected  that definite arrangements will be  made. _ 'Another  matter that retarded the completion-of arrangements was that the date is not yet  known  when the funeral will be  held * over - the    remains    of    her  majesty."     It was   proposed   that  after the parade had ended that a  public meeting should be held in  the open,' as there is not in Nelson  a building large enough to accommodate the   number   that   is   expected to  be in attendance.   It is  . thought that about 3000 or more of  the citizens will participate in .the  parade.    It was suggested that the  Central1 public .school   grounds or  the recreation,grounds would" be. a  suitable place for the meeting.   No  definite,place was decided- upon, as  it was left to the pleastire of the  committee which (will be appointed  on Sunday next.    .    ...  NELSON MINES AND MINING  Ore From the Silver Hill  The steamer Kokanee -will make  a special triji toSjOrawford Bay on  Sunday next   for the  purpose of  bringing to the smelter here over  200 -tons of ore which have been  brought down to the landing from  the Silver Hill mine.   The company  had a contract with the G.'iVR. to  haul 50 tons per day, but owing to  the wagon road being damaged by  the.thaw which occurred a week  ago they are unable to "bring to the  landing this amount although they  are removing this quantity if not  more from the mine.   Thoy are delivering at the landing- about 200  tons   per   week,   and with colder  weather it is thought that a much  larger - quantity   can be   brought  down. ''______.   '  Mining Records.
