It was  all around the fireboxes of the  wrecked engines. How an ; explosion of the: most terrific character  is avoided is a mystery. There  was enough dynamite on board the  train to wreck every house for half ���  a mile around at least and to break  every pane of glass in town.  Superintendent Warfield of the  street railway, ,wlio has spent most  of his life in mining operations and  is well acquainted with the properties of dynamite,. on- visiting Ythe  scene of the accident gave it as his  opinion that if ah explosion ;ha,d  . taken place the town would h^ve  been almost blown to' atoms.   He  was surprised that the railway had  consented to carry amount  of the explosive, and-'especially so  near the engine.   It was sometime  before the dangerous character of  the contents of the cars was discovered.   In the meanwhile a large  number of sticks Of dynamite had  been carried away, and serious consequences   are still   feared unless  care is exercised by all who took  them away.

Robinson's Patent Barley"  Robinson's Patent Groats  ALL   NEW   AND   FRESH  THE  HUDSON'S  There may be some difference" of  opinion throughout the province"ai  to whether' premier Durismuir's  government is all .that it should be,  but when it becomes an issue between the Dunsmuir government  arid Joseph'Martin the difference of  opinion melts away to the .vanishing point.   Down on the Coast some newspapers set off against the loss resulting from the threatened stagnation of the mining and smelting  _industry_o'f Kootenay__^the_gain_  which the province would make  through increased royalties when  James J. Hill secures control of the  East Kootenay coal fields.    It  is  generally understood this argument  in favor of the granting of the Hill  railway charter is made for home  consumption only.  The frequency with which prisoners take French leave from the  Nelson jail threatens to undermine  public confidence in that institution  as,a place for the safekeeping of  criminals. On Saturday, manager  Paquette, of the Spokane &  Northern Telegraph Company, Was  requested to send a messenger to  the jail to receive a message which  James F. McGill de Riviere, who is  held on a charge of murder, desired  to have transmitted over tlie wires.  The messenger was absent about  half an hour, arid when he returned  manager Paquette impatiently demanded the message. The kid had'  not been near the jail, but he was  equal to the occasion. He replied:  " The man is not in."  A writer in the Victoria Tithes  has solved the vexed railway and  fuel problem which perplexes the  people cf Kootenay. He assures'  Ms readers that the province has  nothing 'to fear from the control bf  the Fernie coal fields by James J.  Hill, because there is plenty of coal  on Vancouver Island, which, with  the completion of the Victoria,  Vancouver & Eastern railway, the  Kootenay smelters may draw upon.  ��il that now remains is to con-'  vince the British Columbia smelters  that it is to their interest to forego"  their present supply, and wait until they can draw on the Vancouver  Island supply; and then convince  the miue owners that their interests lie iu paying the British Columbia smelters the higher rate for  treatment which was in vogue before tho Fernie coal fields were  opened up. Tho issue may then be  regarded as settled.  It begins to look as if the federal  government will consider favorably  the applications looking to the fostering of the reduction and refining  of the lead ores of the province.    A  leading spirit in this agitation for  government assistance on behalf of  the lead-refining, industry is T. G.  Blackstock of Toronto,-who is said'  to be one of tlie'prospective purchasers  of   the   Canadian   Pacific  railway's smelter at Trail.    It  is  doubtful' if matters in connection  with the ��� proposed  refinery- have  yet assumed a sufficiently definite  shape   to   hazard  a' guess   as. to  whether the proposed refinery will  be erected somewhere in Eastern  Canada, somewhere in the interior  of  British   Columbia,   or at some  point on the Pacific  coast.   There  are many considerations to weigh  in the   choice   of a refinery site,  and right here there should be some  missionary work'doiie by 'the'mem-'  bers of the Nelson City council arid  board of trade.   Should British Columbia > be selected as- the site for  the refinery, no point "in the province can offer better natural' advantages" than   can    Nelson,  arid  these advantages should be laid before the prime movers in the refining project, when it could be ascer-'  tained,' if these inducements failed;'  what'    supplementary    assistance  would be necessary to secure'the  refinery for Nelson.   In 'moving in  such' a matter it is not only the  immediate'refinery which should be  kept iri mind,- but the ��� kindrid industries for. backing up the refinery-  product   which   would   inevitably  follow the establishment of the refinery."      ,    '- ".  An Explanation.   ���  To the Editor pf The Tribune:  Allow   me   space.- to deny a false  statement I saw, in .The Miner this  morning concerning the prisoner's'  escape on Saturday, the 23rd instant. - In ^the first place, I had a  crew digging up a frozen pipe between " Vernon arid Baker streets  on   Stanley.   I   corrifriericed in the  center where the pipe had burst,  according to the engineer's orders,  and worked .both ways to get out  of the frost and.lifted the pipe as I'  went along. -.The upper end of the  cut is opposite the C. P. R. ticket  office and the other end is on Vernon street.   Part of the men were  working-at-each-end-of-the-cut,-  and when I left the upper end and  went down to the lower.end (it  would beabout fifty yards)I turned  around and saw that there was one  man. missing   from   the work. ^ I  went; back at once and saw hitri  running through the alley.   I drew  my revolver and called him to come  batik!.   He turned his head around  and   kept , going.   I was going to  fire,,li.ut children   being  between  the prisoner   and   myself Jn the  alley prevented' me from doing so.  I at once took the rest of the men  in and .reported.   That is all I could  do under the circumstances.   The  man who furnished the information  about me carrying a rifle made a  false statement, for I have not carried a rifle for about a year.   Mr.  Bullock-Webster came on as warden during Mr. Fitzstubbs' absence,  and -changed the ornament for a1  revolver, which I have carried ever  since.    I am very glad I did  not  shoot, for I might have got myself  into trouble.   I admit I  am not a  very good shot, but. I might do as  well as those who have so much to  say about me.  John McAlmon.  Nelson, February 24, 1901.  THE HALL MINES SMELTER  Week's Ore Deliveries.  The shipments of ore to the Hall  Mines smelter during the past week  were about as large as the previous  week���there being over 700 tons  received. One or two new properties have been added to the list,  but the shipments from them were  comparatively small. Tho heaviest  shipper was the Highland mine at  Ainsworth. These consignments  were entirely concentrates, consisting of some 100 tons. This is not  equal to the amount sent down a  week ago, but the difference is  accounted -for in the delay in  moving the ore.  The Silver Hill mine above Crawford Bay ' shipped ' 80' tons. The  Vanstone' Brothers shipped frorri  their property on Coffee creek 25  tons. During previous weeks ore  was brought from Moyie, Kaslo and'  one or two other points, -but this  week there was none.  A larger quantity than usual was  shipped from the Slocan district.  ���FroriV the" Payne about 120 tons  were'received, and about 60 toris  each were sent iu from the Arlington and' Queen Bess. The Hewett  shipped 20 tons, and. tlie Slocan  Sovereign, which has just been  closed down, shipped about 40 tons.  The Hartney group at New Denver,  is one that was added to the list"  this week, and it forwarded t a consignment of about 40 tons. It is  expected that the shipments from  there will be regular every, two  weeks.  ; The Silver King on Toad mountain is daily shipping a considerable  amount to the smelter! From the  Ymir mine SO tons of concentrates  were received. There have been no  receipts from the Boundary camps  for the past two weeks. ���  .

Phoenix, .February -24.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���There are now  130-men employed by jthe Dominion  Copper Company in this camp, and;  of, these 92  are working {[on -the  Stemwinder,  where   hand drilling  still prevails.   This company continues   to   crowd  development   as  fast as possible and is putting on  men wherever they can be used .to  advantage.     Five claims are now  being worked, viz.-, Brooklyn, Stem-  winder, Standard, Idaho, and Rawhide, the latter by contract. Orders  have just been placed for machinery  which will cost the company in the  neighborhood pf $20,000 and will  place the concern in' a position to  carry   on the exploitation   of its  properties   on   a   more  'extensive  scale.   The   James   Cooper   Manufacturing,. Company^ of   Montreal,  through its Rossland agent, H.  R.  Kirkpatrick, secured an order for a  compressor, which is to be delivered  in three months.  <. An order for boilers and .engines  -went* to   an . American . firm, the  Bradley'..Engineerings Company" of -  Spokane.   The compressor will  be  an Ingersoll-Sergeant machine, or  what is - known as half of a high  pressure cross compound Corliss 20-  drill' compressor   with  simple air  cylinder, and of the" piston inlet  type. /It-Twill be fitted with all the  latest    improvements'  known   'to.  machinery.makers. The compressor-  will be fitted with one high pres-'  sure steam cylinder 18 inches in,  'diameter'by-36-inch'stroke and one--'  simple air cylinder 18^ "inches in'  diameter by  30-inch stroke.   The*  feed -water heater will -'be cof _ 200,  horse power capacity and, the air  receiver will be - 54 - inches by '12  feet in size.   Eight 3��-inch Ingersoll-Sergeant drills have been .ordered with columns and hose, complete. L  " From the Bradley  Engineering  Company the following -machinery*;  was received:   One 80 horse-power  ~   ��� rn i___ ���'_   SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed on deposits.

For some time prospecting has been  -conducted on-the Brooklyn-ground  near the, skating rink to find a bedrock foundation for the new compressor. It will probably be,located  at or near the dividing line of the  Brooklyn and Stemwinder, so as to  work both properties and the Idaho  as well with one large machinery  plant.          WILD BUSH OF THE SEAFOETHS.  "Out of the nine months' cam:  paign, crowded every day with new  experiences andi fresh impressions,  the fact^that impressed me most of  all was the absolute self-reliance of  'the old man.' Roberts lifted up,  promoted or destroyed the army  'generals���men as big almost as himself in the public mind���as if .they  were little children. Yes.. Roberts  had despotic control, of 200,000  men and ��70,000,000."  The foregoing is taken from a  graphic interview' in the Sydney  Bulletin with "Banjo" ^atterson,  who was in South 'Africa as war  correspondent, aud who, as a writer  of swinging verse, may be termed  the Australian "\yhyte-Melville.   -  "The grandest picture of war  that I-saw," he continued," was the  charge of the Seaforth Highlanders.  My God! It tightened your breath  to- see them go across a quarter of  a mile of open. There are no bugle  calls in battle now. You see the  men lying prostrate on the ground  ���the bullets squealing and humming over them. When the officer  rises���that's the signal for the men  to rise and charge with him. And  these fellows, led by a subaltern  six ..feet four inches high���a big  Highlander in his kilts���rose with  him in a.flash. Thei e was no waiting, no watching, as with a. bad  regiment, for some one else to rise  and first draw the fire. They all  tsprang up and rushed'forward.   It I  was a cruel thing to watch���all  your nerves, were saying: 'One of  those men will go down, any moment, downl' And -they went  down���pitching heavily, helplessly  forward, for' all the world as .if  their feet had caught in something  and they hadn't tried to save themselves from falling.  "Oh! every feeling���even the ad-,  miration   for   their   heroism���was  lost in the feeling' of horror I   But,  they rose and dashed forward! rose  and   dashed .. forward !     rose   and  dashed   forward!   and   the   Boers  never waited to give them their  revenge.     Another     thing ���   that  impressed me was thatv no actual  battlefield in the slightest degree  resembled' the   battlefield   of   the  painter and the artist.  In a picture,  a gun is shown as it'tfppearson the  stage.   The gunners are, all'posing.1  The officer is there in a heroic'attitude, with ,his mouth wide open.  In, a real action you will see fellows  lying asleep beside the gun, while  their mates carry,up the cartridges  quick and lively,  load and Blaze,  while their officer is walking up and  down very rigidly. ��� And when the  bullets are coming at  them fast,  you can see that the men are thinking -hard  about v the  hotness.; of  things, butfthey say nothing.-.v   '%���  V'They do all'their Hvork1' quickly  and quietly.   And a battery com-'  ing.into action is a very different  spectacle from the artist's conception.   There is no flourish, no style,  about theireality... The animals are  broken and jaded; aiid you will.see  a driver nursing one wretch and  chopping^ into the other to, get the  gun along.   The effect of the campaign on the Australians will be to  make them 'fifty's times .more English than before.    I'm sure that the  bulk of oui' fellows would, after a  few months'   spell,   assist   in any  other English war, out of a, feeling  of comradeship.' And another effect  of this war on.the Australians .is  that it has killed inter-state jealousy among-them and has -caused  them to regard Australians as xone  people with one destiny." , j      t   f  D.

INSURANCE AGENT8 ���  Agenta for J. & J. TAYLOR SAFES.  Desirable Business and Residence Lots  in (Bogustown). Fairview Addition.  RAILEOAD TRUST'S ECONOMY..  Plans'are being worked out by  the railroad companies which have  been brought together by "community of interest"- for making  widespread reductions of expenses.  Orders have gone forth to dispense  with all needless officials in the general offices and soliciting forced, and  all, unnecessary agencies will be  abolished. This policy ��� is to be  vigorously^ pursued- on- the.7*Union*  Pacific and Southern Pacific . sya^  terns-, "which' have lately /been*  merged in the Reading & Jersey  Central, the Southern Railway and  ^Mobile & Ohio, the Great Northern  and Northern Pacific, Gonld and  Kansas & Texas system, and the  railroads affiliated with the Pennsylvania.  It has further been decided to  cut down as far as possible the  actual operating expenses of railroads by taking off useless trains  and applying the."per ton mile"  method so successfully practiced by  president James J. Hill of the Great  Northern. The community of  ownership and absorption" of one  road by another will result in the  dispensing with perhaps 3000 men  in the general offices, including  some high-salaried officials. At an  average of $800 this means a saving  of $2,500,000 a year. Probably  5000 agents and solicitors will be  done away with when the full programme is earned out from one end  of the country to the other. Here  is a further saving of $2,500,000.  In operating crews, by reason of  cutting off useless competitive trains  and regulating the size of the trains  according to the traffic to be carried,  perhaps 12,000 men can be dispensed  with, thereby effecting a further  saving of $6,000,000 a ^year. This  would result in a total curtailment  of 20,000 men in the regular railroad service.' In the proposed re-  habilitation of the anthracite trade,  providing for the joint handling of  the entire output, some have figured  out a saving of 50 cents a ton, or  about $25,000,000 a year. There,  will also be a correspondingly large  increase in the. profits of bituminous coal through a concentration of  interests, such as is under way.

Return Game at Rossland.
'Although   the Nelson team defeated the Victorias of/Rossland by
a score of 12 goals to six in the
game played at the rink on Saturday night the latter put up much
better individual playing than the
members of the home team. ' From
the start it was quite evident that
the local team would win, as their
combination and especially that of
the forwards outwitted the visitors
at nearly every   turn.     Had the
combination been a strong feature
of   the   Rosslands   probably/ they,
would   not   have   suffered defeat.
Notwithstanding   that Nelson   secured fast and a large number of
goals Rossland did not slack its pace
and played a fast game to the last.
McOreary, their goal defender, lost
heart in- the last half a very loose
game.   Through this Nelson scored
two or three points.     The visitors
returned   home   last   evening and
already   arrangements   are   being
made for the Nelson team to go to
Rossland for a return game during
the latter part of this week.

The Jail Escape.
_ Convict John 'R.«Chisholm, who
escaped on Saturday from guard
McAlmon while he'was .watching a
gang who were digging a trench on
Stanley street, is still at large and
it is probable he is now "beyond-the'
reach of the law.' A description of
the prisoner lias been sent to all
surrounding Jpointe, but' no word
has been received. - The description
is as follows: "A^e 24 years, height
5   feet   eight   inches,   black, hair,
brown eyes, fresh complexion, clean
shaven   and   weighing   about   1.46
pounds."   He is easily detected as
he has an impediment in his speech.
He was confined at the provincial
jail for six months on the charge of
theft and his time would have been
up   on  tlie 24th of May.     Guilty
parties like to be sentenced to the
Nelson jail, as they think there is
always some hope of gaining their
freedom before they have served
out their sentence.   Probq.biy more
prisoners Have  escaped  from the
Nelson jail than any other institution in the Dominion.
