TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 1901  NELSON FIRE DEPARTMENT  REORGANIZATION    PROPOSITION  UNDER DISCUSSION.  Thomas W. Lillie of Vancouver Elected  Chief���Proceedings of the Council  Last Night.  The report of the fire, water and  light committee, touching upon the  reorganisation of-the fire department, arid the carrying out of the  charges suggested by the Mainland  Board of   Fire  Underwriters was  the chief subject of discussion* at  the council meeting last evening.  The greatest attention was given to  the initial recommendation of the  committee that a paid department  of ten men be appointed and that  another   issue   of   debentures   be  made to cover the cost of a new fire  -hall and city hall.  *��� Mayor Fletcher at once recorded  his opposition to the recommendation.-   He said it would'mean an:  expenditure of $19,000 'to comply  with the underwriters' ideas as to  what  the   department should1 be.  The alarm system demanded would  cost at least some $5000, whereas a  smaller system" to cover the busi-.'  ness portion of the city could be  put in for $2500.   The changes out  and on the first vote Thomas W.  Lillie of Vancouver secured five  votes and Thomas Sargent of Toronto two votes. Mr. Lillie was  then declared elected and the salary  fixed at $115 per month.  ^ All other applications for positions on the department will be referred to the new chief with power  to appoint subject to the approval  of the fire, water and light committee.  Mayor Fletcher returned for reconsideration the vote of $100 to  the Cnmberla^^ine sufferers and  the council fojiiSillJ^reased'the  vote to $250. J^"^  A PRONOUNCED REDUCTION  IN  INSURANCE   RATES    UNDER  CERTAIN CONDITIONS.  EASTERN CANADA  &m^9.  lined, would also mean an increase  <    of the city's fixed charges, of $6000,  and'-jthe . balance   of ' the-$19,000  might be charged to capital account.  Alderman Irvine asked what the  \   relative'increase in salaries' under  -    the two systems-would mean,* and  was answered that the paid depart-  , i ment*'proposed would double the  salaryjist.f* y       ~       -_ *_  " Mayor Fletcher*added.that Rossland was a -more"difficult place to  protect from fire,than Nelson, yet  j^tliey managed/in'Rossland\with,a  department   of ~ eight." men. '    He  would,support such', aj change in  Nelson,' but he was opposed to increasing ' the, department   to' ten  men arid\~of maintaining virtually  two "establishments.    ' He* agreed  that the present brigade should be  .. made more efficient, but he thought  it would be safer'for the council to  -proceed in the 'matter without regard to the board of underwriters,  and then" treat with them afterwards about reductions -in-rates.  . After some further discussion it  was decided to refer the - first sect  tion of the report back to the committee.   ' The other  recommendations were then passed and" the report adopted."''  The tire,' water and light committee reported: (1) -Your committee  having further'considered the ques-   tion-of-the-imprdvements-^of���the-  fire department, and the letter from  the secretary of the Mainland Board  of Fire Underwriters attached to  the report, stating that' if certain  improvements were made a reduction of 10 per cent would be made  from tlie present rates, recommend  that the improvements as outlined  in Mr. Gilbert's letter be carried  out, and that a sum sufficient for  the purpose and for the erection of  a permanent fire hall and city office  ' be raised by sthe issue of debentures, and that the necessary bylaw be prepared and submitted to  the council and to the electors, and  that in the meantime the proposed  addition to the city office and fire  hall be deferred. (2) That the several applications for the position of  fire chief and driver of tlie fire department be considered , by the  council. ��� (3) With reference to the  letter',from J.' \ Keith' Reid, as,, to  supplying power to the city for  electric light purposes,, your committee are unable to recommend  the council, to entertain the pro-'  posal. -' -        "  - The following applications were  received''for the!-position of fire  chief;  J.

Cut of 16 Per Cent if Necessary Precautions Are Taken and-Improve-  ments Made.  rein-  -The 'members of the city council  now know just what will be  quired of them iii the way of  creasing the efficiency of the fire  brigade in order to secure a reduction in.fire insurance^ rates. In his  communication, which was read  last evening, ^Charlesr R. Gilbert,  secretary of the Mainland Board of  Underwriters, recited that in view  of certain improvements beingmade  the board was prepared' to make a  reduction of 16 per cent from the  present rates. Mr. Gilbert's letter  speaks for itself: "  "After referring tq_your esteemed  favor of the 29 th Jilt.,' re reduction  in fire insurance rates in your city  for increased protection, I.beg _to  say that I am instructed by the  board to' advise you that if the following increased protection be' provided-a reduction".of, 16 per cent  from the present rates -'would. be  made: \j.  ym_    _      , " , ,.  -" Increase - the __ number of fully  paid   menr at}Central   station   to  eight; provide a sub-station at an  appropriate "point on the-nortlrside'  of the city 'for -.protection, to the  'dwelling house district, and to 'act  as an 'auxiliary to -the central station in the event qf ,a large fire; sub  , station should be provided with* a  light .combination   chemical--- and'  hose   wagon, horses, and? not less  than two' paid -men ; apparatus at  central,station Tshould   consist-of  hose wagon, chemical and hook and  ladder truck fully equipped ; install  'a. suitable-.electrictalarm ^system,*  with a sufficient number of boxes to  thoroughly cover-the city, "withla  large' alarm   bell   in    connection;  should have riot less 'than 3000 feet  of good hose in all.     - 'r  ~_ "I think that the smith half of  blocks No.  64,  65,  66,  67  and 68  should be included in the fire limits,   as   a conflagration  hazard is  "rapidly increasing in the district  located between Vernon < street and  the water front, and in time would  become a menace to the- more valuable property in the,-city located  south of Vernon street.    By taking  these blocks into the fire limits before they are entirely built up with  frame there would be in all probability, enough brick and stone buildings ,to prevent a fire crossing Vernon street.   I would also say that  a bylaw regulating the amount of  expIosivesrhayretc^"torbe_stored in  the city limits, and one that will  prevent the accumulation of combustible litter and rubbish in buildings, back yards and alleyways is  considered necessary before any reduction in rates is made."  South    Carolina,    February   25.���  Slave dealers in Anderson county  who have been operating under the  convict .'ease   system, which was  condemned in court a week ago,  have made the first move by releasing 21 negroes who were held  captive in the stockades. The grand  jury was ordered to make a searching investigation, and a report will  be submitted -to a special term of  court called for March ,7th.   It is  said that among the negroes held'  in the' Anderson stockade were sev-_  eral aged men"who liad served as  slaves before the war of the rebellion. .��� One ' oldv negro secured his  freedom through his former master.  He said he .'had.been caught like  others - with* the carious and mysterious contracts -tfrhieh had^ito be  signed, and was not aware of what  he had'done until- informed that he  .would be shot if he^tried to escape.'  Judge Bennett has" declared _ that"  the whole rsystem will be exposed.  Much uneasiness is ,being felt over  the probable, report to be made by  the grand jury..'"'"

He was  strongly in favor of the  government allowing the Great" Northern  to   come   into that district.   ' He  stated that when once the market  for the coal was made greater the  coal industry there would  become  the greatest in  the province.    He  ^proceeded to point out, and" gave  figures to show that there was sufficient coal there to meet the demand   of   tho  province.    He   also  started to explain, but he did not,  as he drifted off into matters connected with the Trail smelter. A  number of others took part, in the  discussion, some favoring the building of a railway and some against  it.  A resolution was brought, in by  G. Tunstall and J.

The reason why the new smelters iu the  Boundary had not been supplied  lately was that there had been a  break in the machinery at the miue.  New machinery has now been put  in and they expect to turn out 30,-  000 tons per day. Mr. Bentley also  made a vicious attack on the C. P.  R., alleging that it was the cause of  the whole trouble.  H. E. MacDonnell, local managing freight agent of the C. P. R.f  was present and was asked to give  his views on* the subject. He remarked that ho had very little to  say but said that during the past  six months the railroad company  had hauled from the coal  fields about 1100 cars, and, riot-  withstanding this the Trail smelter  wai forced to shut down twice during that period.  J. J. Campbell, commercial manager at the Hall Mines smelter,  stated that he had tried since last  August and had even begged^/the  coal company, to make a contract  with the smelter company for  coal but had failed. Ho also  stated that he had been in Rdssland  and had found that the largest min-  ��� ing company there wasjusing wood.  When asked the reason^he was told  that a contract had been made with  the coal company for two cars a  day,, and that only one could be  obtained. He wanted to know  what the reason was that this  shortage prevailed. Mr. Bentley  had stated that the coal company  was willing to make a five-year  contract with any smelting company, and "if this is the case," said  sick.     He   declined   to   have ^    _���,  ,   Vessel taken in tow, saying he was I Mr. Campbell, " why could we not  able to navigate her, ��� get  a   contract ?"    Mr.    Bentley  -    Secret of Success.  Vancouver Province.  Just at the present time quite a  number of papers for young people  are passing around this formula as  the   secret of the late P.  D. Armour's ' millions:     "Five   o'clock,  arose; 6 o'clock arrived at oflice; 1  o'clock, luncheon;   6 o'clock, went  home; 7  o'clock, dinner; 9 o'clock,  retired."   Whether or not Mr. Armour adhered to   this schedule���  and it is most probable that he did  ���it does not contain tlio secret ol  Mr. Armour's  great  wealth.     As  the Hamilton  Times puts it: "The  fact-is*"Armour���could~not^have  'earned'    $40,000,000    if    he    had  'earned' $100 an  hour, 10 hours a  day and 300 days a year for every  year since he was weaned.     His  great fortune was largely the  result of speculation, stock exchange  gambling and  promoting   various  companies.    And  the intensity of  his life led to his premature death."  Death of U. S. Ex-Senator White.  Ex-United States senator Stephen  M. White died at his residence in  Los Angeles at 4 o'clock Thursday  morning after a short illness. He  had .been suffering from ulceration  of the stomach, but his. condition  was not thought to be dangerous.  After midnight he began to show  alarming symptoms and sank rapidly. Senator White's family is greatly prostrated.. Since his retirement  from the United States senate several months ago senator White has  been living in Los Angeles, attending to his legal business.  Stephen M.White was born in-  San: Francisco, January 9, .1853;'  was brought up on a farm and educated in Santa Clara college. He  studied law and was admitted' to  tlie bar in 1874. He was district  attorney of Los Angeles county  from 1882 to 1886. He was state  senator and president pro tern of  the state senate from 1886 to 1890,  and during 1888-90 acting governor  of the state. He was elected temporary .. chairman of the national  Democratic convention at St. Louis  in 1887, and was made permanent  chairman of the Chicago convention  in 1896.        .

Berlin, February 25.���The Lo-  kal Anzeiger has the following  from Pekin, dated February 25th:  The execution of Chili Chiu, formerly grand secretary, and Hsu  Cheng Yu, son of the notorious Hsu  Hung, tomorrow by the hangman  will occur upon the same place  where last summer two pro-civilization mandarins were beheaded.  The spot is within the German  zone. All the other officials whose  lives are demanded by the ministers of the^powers will be beheaded  in Sian :Fu. The opinion largely  prevails in Pekin that prince Tuan's  punishment will necessitate the  choosing of another heir to the  throne than his son.

Nelson now has a chief -for its  fire'department who at least"-has  had some practical experience as a  'fireman.' His'first duty, should-be  /to overhaul the whole department.  ' Harry Bentley's methods are  effective. His mission was to gather  ^���together as the Nelson board of  * trade" a quorum of members who  ,would stand for a Crow's Nest Coal  Company resolution and he has  succeeded.  xTi3i& business men of the city have  lodged _��� with . the police commis-  iSioners an-emphatic=protest against  the dismissal of policeman Kerr  and it is not unlikely that the commissioners will be induced to reconsider their action. *"  The resolution passed at the  meeting of-' the. Nelson Board- of  Trade last evening cannot 'bo  accepted as* representative of the  feelings of the board, but it will  be made to do campaign duty in  the ^ast.    Harry Bentley of Fernie is  now stumping the province in the  interests of the Crow's Nest Pass  Coal Company, and abusing those  who' do not share the same views  as himself upon the proposal to  allow James J. Hill to subject the  mining and smelting industry of  Kootenay to the domination of his  railway and smelter trust.  Last evening a little meeting of  the board of trade recorded its vote  in favor of Hill's application for a  railway feeder into East Kootenay.  At the meeting immediately previous the .same board was recorded  favorably upon encouraging home  smelting and refining; and it is said  that its members stand ready to  pass any old resolution which interested persons may frame for it for  the next meeting.  Tub Yukon railway project which  the Dunsmuir government- has decided to assist during -the present  session Of the legislature is generally understood to be a revival of the  ^Mackenzie and Mann scheme which,  after receiving the support of the  Laurier government, was killed-off  in the senate. Since the Mackenzie  and Mann fizzle, however, the federal government has had an engineering party in the field, with  the result that there is now much  more   information   available   con-  n ��� ' -  ceruing the northern country than  there was two years- ago.   Several  pages of the last report of - minister  Blair are devoted to the line of the  proposed railway which   engineer  O'Dwyer has  explored from Fort  Simpson on the Coast to Teslin lake.  From Tcslin lake it is  suggested  that   light   draught   steamers   be  employed to complete tho connection between Dawson City and the  coast.   Engineer O'Dwyer's line of  railway is 230 miles in length, and  the average cost of construction is  placed   at' $19,876   per   mile,   or  $4,571,500 in all.   The report further suggests, that when built-the  lower   end - of the Fort Simpson-  Teslin Lake road will ultimately be  used as the outlet for the transcontinental line which the Canadian  Northern   Railway   Company will  build through the Yellowhead Pass.  RAILWAY-NOTES.  L  There were justiseven passengers  killed on the railways of Canada  during the'past year.  At the-close **of . the--last fiscal  year there were 17,824- miles of railway tracks in the Dominion,* of  which 17,657 miles were ,in. operation.

The -total' expenditures pf the  federal government., upon railway  .'construction amounts" to $151,161,'-  423.48.. The government's .holdings  of railway property, will not equal  the surii total of its expenditures.  !

The case of Mariuo vs. Alexander  et al, which has been  beforo tho  supremo court for tho past  threo  days, is progressing slowly. Defendant-Alexander Sproat was in the  witness box all day yesterday.   His  evidence went to show that there  was   no   partnership between tho  plaintiff and the defendants,' and  that   each   wero representing   his  own iuterests.   He also stated that  on December 1st Marino received a  largo sum of monoy and at once  proceeded with tho development of  ,the property and that he was to get  his'money back through tho sale of  tlie ore that he took from the mine.  This was the undei'standing and it  was put into a written agreement.  -The   witness   also   gave    further  details concerning the agreements  that were made aud the various conversations that were held between  the   parties   involved.    His   cross  examination will be continued this  morning.       Although .   defendant  Mclnnes is the only witness to be  examined yet, it is quite probable  that the case will not be completed  until some time tomorrow.  There will be a number of interesting cases before the session of  chambers this morning, as two or  three will come up that were-not  disposed of yesterday.

LOST A rOBTUNE..-  San Francisco Examiner. -  Attorney-Frank H.-Powers'is not  the man, to let a good thing go by  . when there is a chance of his-getting a grip upon it.    Yet he has  ' overlooked   a   chance   ,at fortune  which would afford a better excuse  for   profanity   tham - his ; book,1 "L  Swear," ever did for existence.   In  November, 1894, he had an Englishman as a client who had paid him  more than one good fee, but finally  struck a streak of* hard luck'and,  owing   the   attorney $1250,   gave  him all he could���an assigned claim  to a tenth interest in - nine placer  mining claims. -  The claims were  located   about forty- miles    from  Bakersfield, and even at that time  were     known*  to" be    oil   lands.  Powers tossed,the deed aside and  was'ready to charge up the*$1250,  if not to profit and loss, at least as.  an offset to some*1- of the foes his  former client had,, previously paid  him.  In 1804 all the nine claims had  been leased to Jewett and Blodgett  of Bakersfield for a term of- twenty  years. The lessees were to - do the  necessary woik every year to hold  the claims under the law. The  lessors supposed that this was being done. Some 'time ago, when  the oil movement was beginning to  Jboom_in_Kern^cou!ity, Powers dug  up his deed, which lie had - never  recorded, and without'ever knowing that it referred to land which  was in great * demand asked, his  agent at Bakersfield to put the deed  on record.' The agent-glanced over  the deed and turned white.  "Do you know," said he, "that  part of this land has just been'sold  for $750,000?"  Powers did not know it. He then  began to make inquiry, and yesterday gave this explanation of what  ho had-learned:   .  "Jewett and Blodgett, the lessees  of the nine-^claims, did not carry  out the terms^bf the lease, , but /let  tliilies   : Hilda   ,'iiri-Ml  jif.Kn     lnnai-nra'  Major Atherton, it is reported, has  refused a check for ��40,000 as compensation for the destruction of;his  domestic happiness, and the , task  ahead of those trying to.arrange a  settlement' would seem to be insuperable. The petitioner in this  sensational society scandal is second'  in command of the 12th ��� Prince of  Wales Royal Lancers, a crack cavalry., regiment. He should have  succeeded to the command of the  regiment when lord Airlie was  killed, but he. was passed over in  favor of colonel B. T. Mahon.    .  J The   respondent,   Mabel Louise  Atherton, is the sister of sir Aubrey  Paul.  ' She was married in 1892 and  has a son born in 1899.     She is a  good-looking, stylish woman, about  thirty-five years of age, and belongs  to London's .smartest set.     When  she went to South Africa her husband's   regiment   was" with lord  Methuen's    command   at   Modder  River. _ She proceeded, there and  her actions are said to have been  partially responsible foiv the scathing oriticism of  Dr.- Treves   and  others on the  "plague of women."  In the same camp was the duke" of  Westminster, then , lord  Belgrave,  and the brother of a well-known  South  African   millionaire, *- whose  name has also been entangled-*with  that of the feminine respondent.';  -   Subatitutin��rElectricity.  The   German   emperor   recently  announced his ��� conviction that   it  was time to revolutionize the whole  German railway service ��� by *- substituting .electricity for steam in all  passenger .traffic and relegating*the  steam engine to the work of hauling  freight.     William   III    generally  loses no time in putting his ideas  into execution, when possible, and  the first   experiments   in (running  electrical expresses will be made at'  once on the military road * between  Berlin and Zossen, on which, with  strengthened tracks, herr Rathenau,  who will have charge of the work,  maintains that a speed of from 150  to 170 miles an hour could be maintained  with  safety.- Each of~his  electric expresses  will look like a  sleeping-car,   and will' carry fifty  passengers. r ���  Sin Francisco Examiner.  Dr. P. H. Flood was ordered  to  pay $2000 damages by the supreme  court yesterday.   Evidence showed  that over a year ago lie was called  to attend Mrs. Margaret A. Lathrope.  An operation was deemed necessary  by him.     Her screams interfered  with his application of the necessary  instruments.   He finally said that  if she "did not quit he would quit."  And< -leave   he 'did,  although the  patient was in agony. The husband  followed the physician to the door,  begging ���-him;not to go.   Refusing  to come back; it was - over an hour  before another doctor was obtained,  the woman in the meantime suffering dreadfully.,   The other surgeon  .performed the operation, saving the j  mother's life at the expense of that  of the child.  Mr. and Mrs. Lathrope sued Dr.  Flood and got a verdict for $2000  in the superior-court. Dr. Flood  appealed the case to the supreme  court and yesterday- the latter  affirmed the lower court's action,  saying in part:-  It is the undoubted law that a  physician may elect whether or not  he will give his services to a case,  but having accepted fhis employment, and entered upon the discharge 'of his duties, he is bound to  devote to the patient his best" skill  and attention and to abandon the  case only under one of two conditions. First, where'the contract is  terminated by the employer, which  termination may be made immediately. ' Second, 'where l it is done  after due notice and and -an ample  opportunity afforded to secure the  attendance of other medical attendance. v . . He can never be justified in abandoning, it (case) as did  this - defendant, - and '���'the \ circumstances show a negligence in its  character amounting; well ,��� nigh to  brutality. - , -~  srr-r-  ��� *-*=* ���<*=* ��� -c^ ��^. ^ ��^. ^ .^ ^^ ^��=: ���^���ri ^^  ESTABLISHED IN NELSON IN 1890  GUARANTEED FOR THREE YEARS  Jacob Dovep, The Jeweler, Nelson, B.

Like Arctic Regions.    ��� - -  A stranger- in New York within  the last few days, gazing at New  York, would, have imagined ���himself in Arctic regions.'   The bay and  the rivers  emptying into it have,  been almost completely filled with'  ice, compelling the tugs and ferries  topiowtheir way slowly7througlf  to'- their  slips,   often   effecting a  landing many hours behind their  time.   Taken early in the morning  the bay looked like a frozen plain  with a few tugs and boats apparently   caught  in the ice.   Snowy  heights of Staten island  completed  the picture of polar effect.   In spite  of this no one can conceive the harbor being closed to navigation, as  the ice packs can be shoved to one  side at almost any point. Although  .the ferries niay be late, to the disgust of the commuters, there is no  hope at any time of persons walking across the water from Staten,  island or Jersey.  ; Not since the winter of 1780! has  such a feat been possible. That was,  during the revolutionary war when  the British were occupying the city  and Staten; Island. Morristown^ was,  occupied as headquarters by general Washington; while small American garrisons were stretched along  the Kill ,yon.; Kull. . So severe, was  that winter that all the bay was  solid. It was possible for an army  to cross the ice with artillery.: This  was Actually - accomplished, as on  January ,15 history showsy that  2500 -Americans crossed from De  Hart's Point to Staten Island with  the intention of ;capturing the  British garrison. The expedition  was only partly successful; Twice  after that -the British made the  crossing, raiding Elizabeth each  time. Prom that time to this the  harbor and the ;Bast and- North  rivers have never been solid and  navigation at all times have been  kept moving, though as now under  frequent difficulties.  ��� The illiterate nations are chiefly.

This practically amounts to  an attempt to establish a system of  terrorism and to frighten the Canadian .people from taking steps  which-they, consider proper. It is  certainly not an agreeable' outlook'for the people of Canada if the  two great railway corporations in  Canada, the C.-P.

'_. -   - ~*  - The 'freight train which left  Nelson.' at six o'clock0 yesterday'  morning met with an accident which  delayed traffic a short time. - As'  the train approached Slocan Junction, one of the heavily-loaded cars  'jumped the track and turned over  on its'side. A wrecking crew was  immediately despatched "from 'here  to clear the track.' Rapid "work  was done and/ the passenger train  for Rossland due to leave . here at  eight o'clock was'delayed only a  few minutes.  that have put in an application are  requested to be' present. The number to be taken from Nelson haa  been placed at 25, but as only 14  men will be taken from Rossland it  is probable that more than 25 will  be taken from here. Those who  will come from Ros9land are as  follows: T. J. Jones, J. A. Trim,  F. B. Smith, W. A. Keith, G. S.  Douglas, L. T. Herchmer, J. Hendry,  A. Gannoway, H. M. Campbell, AV.  W. Hipper, J. R.

J. Fort, the chief  clerk at -the Victoria office, will  arrive in "Nelson on Saturday to  assist Mr. MeLeod for the first few  weeks. /Although Mr. Nolan has  been appointed assistant, it is quite  probable that another clerk will be  needed. The opening of the office  will be a great convenience to eastern British "Columbia, as by the  present. method all deeds, mortgages and transactions, in connection with real estate have to be recorded at Victoria.

JOHN A. IRVING & CO.  Had Two Bibs Broken.  Samuel D. "Howell, who has for  some time past been employed as a  driver for W- P. Tierney & Co., had  two ribs brokon and received other  internal injuries by being mixed up  iu a runaway yesterday morning.  It was at the C. P. R. yards where  the accident occurred.   Howell had  given, the   team   a   drink at the  creek, but forgot to put the bits  back in the   horses' mouths.   He  started   the team iii the uptown  direction,   when the   horses   soon  became unmanageable and started  on a lively run along the street.  The    wagon   struck   a   post   and  Howell was thrown high in the air,  lighting on the ground with much  force. He was unconscious for some  time and was unable to tell how it  had happened.   He was removed to  his home on Kootenay street in a  hack, where he was at once attended by Dr. Hall.   He is now doing  nicely.  Constabulary Recruits.  Dr. Kennedy and lieutenant  George S. Beer, who have been recruiting men at Rossland for the  past two days, returned to Nelson  last evening. They were successful  in securing li men, although they  were at liberty to accept 25. The  men selected are strong and healthy  and apparently capable pf standing  a great deal of hardship. They will  come to Nelson on Thursday, and  on Friday all those from .this district will leave for the east. Recruiting   of   the Nelson men will  start sharp  at  9  o'clock at  the  armory this  morning'/   AU those j is the sorting of hog's bristles as it  More Frdmotions.    -  ������  Another, change was made in the  local staff of the C. P. R. yesterday,  when conductor David McKay,  who has been in the service of.the  company for the past sixteen years,  was promoted as assistant train  master to alderman Hamilton. Mr.  McKay has for several years - been  running from Nelson to Robson. It  is said that Mr. Hamilton, who now  Holds the title of train master, is to  be promoted-to chief train master  of.the Kootenays. .James Lawrence,  who is now trainmaster at Smelter  Junction, "is to be" transferred to  Nelsou, where he "is to hold the  position of- chief train, dispatcher.

Improvements.    ���  In view of/the application, for a  Charter for fa line from the Great  Northern"; railway into British Co-  lumbia,'.the Canadian Pacific has  decided to .carry out a number of  important   improvements ' on   the  Crow's Nest-Pass branch pf its system   during   the   coming, summer.  Fifteen' locomotives have, been ordered for use exclusively' on this  line, and a large amount of rolling  stock, which .has been ordered,- is  expected to be .ready to cope with  the traffic about March 1st.   It is  to meet the rapidly expanding output from the mines this new equip-,  ment is being obtained and the improvements on the system are being,  made. :_   CURIOUS FACTS.  Two hundred and , twenty-four  gallons of fresh water .weigh a ton.  A single sunflower - breathes out  twenty gallons of water in a day.  In 1830 the world's railways  measured 219 miles. Now there are  370,000 miles:  ���Potatoes brought into Russia first  in 1769 caused fearful riots, being  called devil's apples.  Holland has nine miles of canal  for every one hundred square miles  of surface,^ 2700 miles in all.  The weight of the air which  encircles the earth is equal to that  of 581,000 cubes of copper, each  1093 yards square.  The funnels of the steamer  Oceanic are of "such gigantic proportions that two' tram cars could  pass through- them, side by side.  The jellyfish .has no' teeth, but  uses himself as if he were a piece of  paper when he is hungry, getting  his food and then wrapping himself  about it. -  More steel is used in the manufacture of pens than in all the sword  and gun factories in the world. A  ton pf steel produces about 10,000  gross of pens.  Before the German empire was  unified, an author had to obtain 22  different copyrights for a book, and  a railway bill had to pass through  14 different parliaments.  When the smoke bells are suspended over gas burners to shield  the ceiling, it "is better to have  them come as low as possible, but  not closer than .12 or 15 inches to  the flame.  Iii the United States there are 134  cities which have a population exceeding thirty thousand. They  have a total population of 18,872,462.  The average population is 140,839.  The most costly piece of railway  line in the world is that between  Mansion House and Aldgate Station  in London, which required the expenditure of nearly $10,000,000 a  mile.  An example of patient industry  is carried on iu Tien Tsin, China.  Each one of the bristles has to be  picked out, measured and placed in  the bundle of hairs of corresponding length.  In a recent case of pneumonia in  Brooklyn 8500 gallons of oxygen  gas were^ used, the sick man was  packed in ice, an alcohol bath was  given every 25 minutes and four  quarts of milk with three quarts of  whiskey were administered daily.  The patient recovered.  According to the most recent census the population of Belgium is  6,750,000, which for its 11,378 square  miles of territory gives 593 inhabitants a square mile, making Belgium the most thickly populated  country on the globe.   -  PEBSONAL.
