London, January 23.���The king,  who remained in- the train over  night, was driven to Buckingham  palace after taking the oath before  the privy council and -dined there'  with the duehessj-��f 'Albany. Subsequently he went to Marlborough  house to sleep., _It*,is understood-  that he will return to Osborne this  morning (Thursday) to direct the  funeral arrangements. These were  discussed at a meeting of "the  authorities of the royal household  at Buckingham palace last evening.  At the college of arms it was said  that the date of the funeral could  not be settled until it was' known  when the European royalties or  their representatives could arrive,  but'that'the function would be held  at the earliest possible date for the  convenience of emperor William,  whose stay in England might be  unavoidably limited.' .-  Buckingham-   palace    is   being  made ready for the royal- persons  ���jvyho are arriving lin London., Re-  kings of Italy, Belgium and" Greece,  the crown princes of Germany and  Sweden and archduke Francis Per-  dinand'of'Austria.--*".

The ceremony was interesting and  according to precedent.- The'king  was in a separate apartment from  the privy councillors.' To the latter  the duke of * Devonshire formally:  communicated the death of queen  Victoria and the succession ( of her.  son; the prince of Wales,' to the  throne. -  The royal duke and certain lords  of the council-were then directed,  to repair to the' king's presence to  acquaint him with the terms* of the--  lord president's statement. ^Shortly  afterwards his majesty entered the  room in which the .councillors were  assembled and addressed them in a.  brief speech.     The lord chancellor  '(lord Salisbury) then  administered  the path to the king and afterwards  to   the various   members   of   the  councils.    Commencing with lords  in council they took their respective  oaths of allegiance and then passed  in turn before his majesty as at a  levee, except that each passed and  kissed his hands before passing out  of the chambers.   This brought the  ceremony to a close.    By 3:30 p.m.,  when his majesty returned to Marlborough house, the .crowd. in the  neighborhood was of - immense proportions.   The king's prior journey  _was accomplished inY almost complete silence, but ou'< this." occasion  he wasiou'dly cheered allYalong the  line   of/-route. * Immediately   opposite Marlboroughf'house, gates a  tall gentleman in tlie front of the  crowd waved his hands and shouted  "Long Live,the King,'\ whereupon  the crowd cheered with * redoubled  vigor.        * -      ,-~.   ..  mation ceremony today. Regarding the cause of death, the Lancet  says: "Death was due to cerebral  failure.

The newer and more modern structure burned more slowly than those  which already bad fallen prey to  the flames, but the firemen were  apparently paralyzed arid could not  stay the march of the devouring  element. By this time every piece  of fire fighting apparatus the  city possessed was in use. Two  water towers which had failed  to keep the blaze from the  Board of Trade building were  shifted around to St. Paul street  and here again ; they ' were too  late. The fire' dashed across the  narrow street ,' and attacked the  premises of the Thomas Davidson  Company, manufacturing tinsmiths,  spreading east and west, including  ���H.YLevi, drygoods, arid half a dozen  other smaller concerns.  Y On Lemoine street is the big  wholesale,grocery firm of Laporte,  Martin 8c Co., aind after the firemen  had abandoned all hope of. saving  the Board of Trade building they  concentrated their efforts mainly  on this one, for a spread of the  flames in this direction meant the  loss of the entire wholesale dry-  goods section. At 12:30 it looked  as if the building might be saved,  but the stock will be heavily damaged by water.  Another Version.

This in itself  would be a good showing, but when  - it is remembered that Nelson is in a  sense a hospital center for a. very,  large'district, the showing is rendered   manifestly  better.     While  the1report_pf the health officer calls  matters which-  it became an. object to smelt and  refine and manufacture in, Ontario.  The. first, fruits "of;]the,-policy is;  shown^ in the iron - manufacturing,  plants which have been-, started-at  Sault' Ste ^Marie,"  Midland, ������ and- in  I. f  f,h  a.   t*i  ,'*    '  /''a  attention to several  require consideration, it also brings  out one point clearly,' and that is  that the excellent health showing  of the city is in no small measure  due < to > the, .water and- sewerage  systems -which -have been constructed. This goes to show that  in its water and eewer systems the  city of Nelson has assets the value  of which cannot be overestimated  in the race which Nelson is running  to become the greatest city in  British Columbia.  X'*1-  m  **.  Whatever may-be said against  the proposal to secure for British  Columbia the maximum of advantage-from the exploitation of its  mineral resources, it cannot be denied that the province of Ontario  today   furnishes   a   most ..pleasing  illustration of the fruits of such a  policy.   While the eastern province  has not the great.mineral resources  of British Columbia, it has men in  its executive council'who have sufficient statesmanship to so regulate  the development' of  such natural  wealth as the province is possessed  of, that advantage, does not stop  with the winning of the minerals  frorii the ground,' but follows on  through their smelting, their refining and industrial manufacture.  In  Ontario it mattered little what the  means so long as. the desired end  was attained.   The government of  thWprpyJince.'leiit itspneouragement  ^tp:tlie. pajdog^-pf Jftquntiea as cheerfully as it imposed -export ��� duties  upon raw ores, with the result that'  Hamilton    and  the , additional  plant projeeted.for the town of���Col-,  lingwood.- This, however, is but thes  beginning of the industrial revival  upon which /Ontario has entered.  The progressive spirit of the men,  directing'' affairs -in Ontario now  bids-fair to enable that province to  profit from other-advantages which,  without the protection' of. its natural wealth could not have been  turned to * account. - So- long * as: it  -was.possible-to_j,obv-Ontario_of_iits_  natural wealth, without, let or hindrance,  its raw material -went to  swell the prosperity of .the eastern  states where it was manufactured.  But now that it has become an object to. manufacture in Ontario, its  advantages as a, place for manufacturing for the European market has  been carefully canvassed'by the men  who  dominate the iron   working  enterprises  in the United States.  The result .has been the .organization ofithe greatest .iron.*,working  and industrial trust in- the- history  of America, which will -have for its  outlet some point along .the Welland canal, which possesses - better  transportation facilities to the. seaboard than any. of' the - present inland   centers   such   as   Pittsburg.  This is no longer a theory.   It has  been   demonstrated  by   Carnegie,  who now- talks of establishing, his  works at a point on the United  States side of Lake Erie, - in order  to take advantage of water transportation to the seaboard.   This in,?  dustrial growth in Ontario evidences  -what   may   be expected from   a  -policy    which   conserves   to   the  province every possible -advantage  from the development of its natural  wealth.    The mineral possibilities  of ' Ontario are ^limited <:,compared,  with those   of  British Columbia;  but Ontario is outstripping ..British  Columbia because its statesmen are  reaching out to secure every benefit,  while in British'Columbia the only  consideration,'given :by',its,.public  men to .'the i great .industry,,of .the  province, is its possibilities. for. .the  purposes of immediate taxation.'  ;EeWiiperspns .have any conception  bf theiwastp-thatis ensiled by the  practice of,*;-allowing<; "theirY-water,  taps to run through the night in  order to prevent their pipes from  freezing. The city engineer of  Toronto has just completed a report  in which he states that the waste  of water from this practice amounts  to three million gallons per night.  Bad Coasting Accident.  James Russell and Ben O'Dell  both had their legs broken while  coasting down Stanley street last  evening. Russell- was acting as  steersman, and when the sleigh  reached Vernon street it was  running over the ice-like bed of the  street at such a high rate of speed  that it was beyond his control. It  shot violently into the sidewalk- on  the opposite side of the street.  Russell's leg-was broken above the  knee and 'near the ankle. O'DelFs  was broken below the knee. Oliver  Symonds, Harry Smith and D. McLean were also on the sleigh and  they were injured slightly about  the head and body. A hack was  called and Russell and O'Dell were  removed to the general-hospital.  Minstrels Reorganize..  At a well represented-meeting,  held in J; E.

The members of the local board  of health, which is composed of all  the members of the council, held  their, first meeting at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The-, principal  business under discussion was the  annual report of the medical health  officer/'Dn LaBau. It'was'a* lengthy  one, dealing with many questions  of importance which affect the. con-;  ditions.of the health of the city, an  outline of which wasY'published in  yesterday's Tribune. ��� It was read  by city clerk Strachan and -was  adopted. ���-���    i,'     ;**'''.  The first matter considered was  the erection of a good ;pest* house.  This^-mayor Fltcber thought, should,  be built* near. the. general-hospital,  as was done in other . cities. The'  mayor stated that'the present provincial government had' decided to  give to the ,ci��y^the,.deed_for the.  park land situated near the hospital.  ' On motion of, aldermen, Paterson  and Madden it was resolved"to'take  the necessary, steps,with" \the provincial.-secretary- to - secure ...this,  land. - It'is thought, that the building will cost about $2500 and will  be built on. the most modern plans.,  The board moved and passed'a  resolution that it was in favor of  appointing a sanitary *. inspector  and have a'proper inspection made  of the city, 'it was cited -that".fire  chief Thompson was .sanitary "inspector, but- as -he", had--several, offices to look after, it was, .thought  best to have a man who would'have  but the one duty to perform/. ,\  The board recommended.that the  mayor arid city engineer-- look- into  the matter of the condition of the  city, dairys and report at' the next  council' meeting. It .is probable  that something will be done to supply - the .institutions with better  water than is being used at present.  The city clerk was authorized to  correspond with other municipalities arid boards of trades of the  province, asking tliat they.co:oper-  "ate with theNelson council in asking-  the government to take steps, for  compulsory vaccination.  The city clerk-was authorized to  instruct the city solicitor to draft  an amendment to be added to the  health bylaw to the effect that all  transportation companies , would  have to -provide a proper medical  certificate of the cause of death of  all deceased persons whose bodies  are brought by them into the cities.  Dr. LaBau was present and offered  many good, suggestions on which  the board will act. The members  present were mayor Fletcher, aldermen 'Selous, Hamilton, Madden,  Paterson,..Gillett and.Jrving. ' The  meeting adjourned subject., to. the*  call of the chair. '^  Rounding Up Japs.,  Victoria,'January 23.���The collector of customs made inquiry this  morning into the landing of 21  Japs by the United States revenue  cutter Grant, they being men  brought. backY from, the United  States for violation.of the contract  labor law.v Captain Tisier explained that.no discourtesy was intended, and, rounding up the Japs,  offered to place them on board the  cutter until the difficulty could be  adjusted. Collector Milne accepted  the, explanation, and.after the Japs  passed through the customs in the  regular way they- were given their  liberty.   A fCity Government Under Arrest.

Vancouver, January 2.3.���[Special  to The  Tribune-]���A. railway  official who is in a position to know-  definitely said today:     "The deal  recently made whereby the charter  pfj the    Victoria,    Vancouver   &  Eastern railway was sold and all  rights   connected   therewith   was  backed up by the Great 'Northern  railway. ( I know that Mr.-Hill-paid  well up towards $200,000 for, the  charter and, the line from Kootenay  to the coast will be built very soon.-,  The deal was made through Mackenzie   &  Mann,   the   sale   being  carried through by Mr. Lukes, confidential agent of the Canadian railway firm, but I am certain that the  money came from Hill himself. It is  simply the completion'of the transcontinental' scheme, of the Grand  Trunk, which will use, Great- Northern lines as far west as Spokane  and will then enter Vancouver from  the Kootenay. The Great Northern  want no deep water connection at  Vancouver,   their   ocean   shipping  being conducted as at'present from  Seattle.     "' '   ,  . * Officers Installed.
