Therefore, resolved, That the  Lord's Day Alliance is worthy of  our hearty sympathy and support,  inasmuch as from a purely unsec-  tarian standpoint, it seeks by every  legitimate means to preserve this  rest day intact as a priceless boon  to all the sons of toil, and to guard  its sacred character as a divine institution.  With those who were elected last  evening the officers are as follows :  president, Mr. George Gurd; vice-  presidents, Rev. Dr. Wright, J. H.  White, H. S. Akehurst, J. B. Morgan, W.

He declared that they should never  surrender so < long as there. were  five hundred left, adding that he  would always be ready -to dead  them. He reminded them that the  American colonies fought for more  than six years to secure independence and. appealed to them to fight  as long, or even longer if necessary,  until not a"man was left.. Some of  the burghers replied that they did  not see how they could fight much  longer as'the British.were destroying all the crops and capturing all  the cattle and sheep, while the  ammunition was neariy^jBxhausted,.  save about six rounds.    "When this  why don't you quit and go prospecting ? "   " The man who figures  on luck in mining," .said Mackay,  " is a fool; the man who figures on  doing a lot of hard work and not  losing his grit will get something."  The four partners did-not'lose  their   grit, nor did1" they rely, on  luck. .. One afternoon the ^ rumor  spread over Virginia City that the  '" 'Con' Virginia men" had. struct.a  body of ore.   It spread as wildfire  , often _   swept   over    the > Nevada  prairies. < The four men left their  mine at sundown and.walked down-  C street amid a babel 'of cheers.  .The next.inorning the Consolidated  \Virginia stock had gone from eighty  cents   to   two. hundred and fifty  dollars a share, and in another day  up to five hundred dollars a share.  In  three' days 'it was announced  that   the - body   of " rock - was   so  large that, its ".value could not be  estimated/ In two weeks the United  States government was negotiating  with the owners of the mine for  the   redemption   of   bonds - whose  values had been affected by   the  civil war.

Under the caption, "Mining Successes That Were Not All Luck,"  the February issue of Success contains an article by Robert Mackay  on the discovery of the great Comstock mining property. The way  the four great partners got together  is interestingly told: Just beyond  "the divide" two men kept a store.  They were James L. Flood'and William O'Brien. They had saved some  "money after a few. years of trading  with the miners, were ready for a  deal in one of the mines, and had  faith in Mackay and Fair. So when  Mackay walked into their store one  morning and remarked, "Jim Flood,  if you and O'Brien will put up the  money, Fair aud I will put up the  brains, and I think the four of ns  can buy the 'Con* Virginia and  make something out of it." '  "How much do you want, John ?"  said Flood.  " Eighty thousand dollars."  The deal was closed on the spot.  The history of the " Con " Virginia  is as well known, almost, as the  story of Washington and the cherry  tree. Beforo the four miners had  struck the "lead" they had  exhausted their money and their  credit. There seemed to be nothing  in the rock they brought out of the  earth. Other miners met them day  after day and laughed at their  apparently hopeless talk. They  were jeered and made fun of. But  they kept serious faces and sober  minds, and were not to be thwarted  by the idle talk of idlers. One  morning, when the prospect seemed  blackest, a friend said to Mackay :  " John, luck has gone against you;  ' -      Bodies Recovered.  - Vancouver, February* 20.���The  work" -'of recovering1 the" bodies > of  the victims of the mine disaster .at  Cumberland,-B.'C.,*proceeds slowly..  So far eight bodies have been found,  four being, whites. ; The-most "recently recovered bodies, are those  of A. J. Payne, D. M..

The \n-\  .quest was adjourned for a week.  - Two shifts returned without more  bodies. , Fire damp was thick ahead  of the working > party, the men  being, in some cases, almost prostrated. Work was temporarily  suspended in No. 5 shaft today to  allow the air to displace the fire  damp aud "also that more water  might be poured'into No. 0. It was  desired to avoid any possibility of  an inrush of air, which might result disastrously. It is anticipated  that the cavein which the rescuers  reached in No. 5 shaft will cause  much trouble, although some bodies  may be buried under the debris. A  feature of the rescue work is the  absence^of=_the _widows-and other-  bereaved relatives from the pit  mouth. The lapse of time since the  explosion has operated toward  calmness and resignation, and the  wise counsel seems to have prevailed.     '   A Centennial Exposition.  .

News Notes From Japan.  Victoria, February 21.���The  hospital attached to Tokio university, which was burned on January  20 and in which 21 patients were  burned to death and 10 patients  aud 11 nurses and attendants injured, was a wooden structure.  There were 90 patients in it at the  time of the fire which burned from  4 a.m. to 0 a.m. The hospital was  for the treatment of cases of particular interest and had 150 free  beds.  A serious outbreak of disease  among cattle is reported in Na-  masaki and vicinity. Many have  been destroyed.  The secret convention believed to  have been concluded between Russia  and China bids fair to prove a  soxirce of serious trouble iu the far  east. The Japanese press accepted  the report as to the existence ot a  secret Russo-Chinese understanding  without reservation of any kind.  The only consideration that appeals  forcibly to Japanese writers and  publicists is how to meet the situation which that convention creates.  Both marquis Ito and Kato, minister  for foreign affairs, have admitted  that the present situation cannot  be passed over and instructions  have accordingly been sent to  Japanese representatives in London  and Berlin to ascertain the exact  views of the governments to which  they are accredited.  The directors of the general hospital held a meeting last evening and  several matters of interest were discussed. The annual meeting at  which directors for the ensuing  year will be elected will be held on  un :W��ffif��!SS$9S^.**��yKS^  Cfr^CC����Wa��i^S;t.'"^K**t,' )iLaf_iW)SKAi^VUSi_:.' *��U&t.4t+B��&  THE TRIBUNE : NELSOH B.

It increases land values at  an American smelter point; it gives  the ��� merchants of the -American  town all the advantages resulting  from a large smelter payroll, and it  enables its owners, who likewise are  the owners of the Le Roi and other  mines, to escape payment of their  output tax by chargiug. themselves  a reduction rate several dollars in  excess of charges imposed moon  similar ores by the Canadian smelter at Trail. Given sufficient railways of .this kind the smelting  problem of Southern British Columbia will speedily be solved.  ��� The most interesting feature of  the speech from the throne is the  railway policy which it outlines  for the coming session. There will  . be a proposal to bonus a railway,  from the Coast to Boundary,  secondly to bonus the Esquimalt &  Nanaimo extension to the northern  end of Vancouver, and thirdly a  proposal to bonus an all-Canadian  line to the Yukon.  ALL   NEW   /\ND   FRESH  MJSOMS  V- ���,.    -    '" ,      .   -  , . It is .reported, that .the..city, of  Victoria*has decided to-install, a  fully-paid fire department. Owing  ,to his.inability to' work with'the  .call men to advantage chief Deasy  resigned some days ago, .but he has  consented to withdraw his���resigna-  tion if the council meets his request  for'a paid department.  . ��� From the press reports which  'filter through from Ottawa,, it is  .evident there are more members of  the house of .commons impressed   with the importance of increasing  their own salaries, than there are  members anxious to ascertain  which way the interests of the  people lie in the impending railway  fight.  r  ���  -The Japanese immigrants who,  , through fraudulent naturalization,  defeated the white fishermen in  their Fraser river strike last spring,  have now invaded-the field of, the  white miners of the province. The  management of the Van Anda mine  has given employment to a considerable number of, the Japs and  by the end of the present month it  is expected that Japanese labor .will  entirely shut out white labor at the  Van Anda property.  A special   meeting of the city  council has been called for this afternoon for the purpose of deciding  upon some measures of relief for the  sufferers of the mine explosion at  Cumberland.   For several days past  tbe    press     reports     have    been  weighted with stories of the frightful calamity which turned the little  city of Cumberland into one huge  house of mourning.   It is almost  . impossible to overestimate the suffering which the accident has entailed   upon   Nelson's . little sister,  aud the exigencies of the case call  for    prompt    and    liberal-handed  sympathy.  The construction of the Hill, rail-  way. feeder from the East Kootenay  eoal fields,to. the state of Montana  "will help-1" British Columbia in the  ' same way' that the Red Mountain  jailway helps the Rossaand ounp.  ���What Protection Means.  Toronto News.  If England and Pennsylvania simply mined their coal and iron and  sent* them to other' countries for  manufacturing ores there'would be  no Birmingham or Pittsburg, and until Ontario adopts a rational measure of protection we'-'shall never  have, anything like-the industrial,  development which the "richness'of  -our resources ogives us the right to  .expect. "The companies which-are  agitating' against the - duties-are  more   American" "thai**," Canadian.  -Their, sole -object -is- to ��� safeguard  American -interests,-which5 will be-  ' in j ured* by- the new measure." -Bona ���  fide' Canadian' miners 'should- not  -permit - themselves^-to/be"imposed  upon'by the cry,that, the mines will'  be- ruined by the legislation. - A*  kittle thought' will - convince them'  that ^the only parties -injured will'  be the' American- -refinery ^owners ���  and employees,-"and-that so far as  the mines and .-district"of> Sudbury  are concerned- nothing could be  more beneficial, than -legislation of,  which the-effect will', be :to create  new industries and bring together  a large population.    6' '  ���;,  Government'Ownership.  - v" Events.    ,  I am-told.that the nationalization  of the-telegraph systems of Canada  is to come up. this, session/ If-the  nationalization.principle is once begun it will not be long until it.has  spread over- the whole field of. public franchises.   There is no. reason  -why*we should not have a national  telegraph system as., well as a postal  .system���and  if   the   carrying  of  letters r and   transmission   of telegrams, why- not--the''carrying of  passengers and of  freight ? *   The  twentieth century will see many of  the f ranchises-now owned and operated by individuals controlled and  operated by the governments, federal and  provincial,, and. by the  different municipalities. - And when  that time comes it is to be hoped  that public business will be .conducted more on the lines of private  business. If any private institution  were run as we run our government  it would be iu the bankrupt court  within a year.  ���: Will -.Discuss 8mel|ier .Trouble.  .A special meeting of the Nelson  board of trade will be dield at the  board room at 8 o'clock next 'Monday evening. . The. purpose of the  meeting is to discuss the question  of allowing: the Great Northern to  run l its lines, into the Crow's Nest  Pass coal fields and also the smelter  trouble. An invitation has been  extended to the representatives of  the C. P. R, and the coal' company  to be in attendance and .they will  be allowed to advance their side of  the, question. > These questions were  discussed slightly at the last meeting but it was laid over until further information could be obtained  by the members. * It cannot be said  what definite aetion will be taken  but the question will be discussed  in detail. The meeting promises to  be an interesting one.  Well Known Promoter Dead.  ' F. M. Chadbourn of this city received information yesterday/ that  his brother, A.  Chadbourn of the  firm of Chadbourn & Richardson of  London, England, died on Tuesday,  February 19th.

Aiv 'interesting account * of' the  '. "proclamation   of   the. accession of  king'Edward VII. at the entrance  .to'the.city of London, .which' was  ' .attended with-all the old-time ceremony, is given,in a -recent English  "exchange:  The site of old,Temple^Bar, now  -. occupied by tlie Griffin monument,  -marking the entrance to the .city,  ���was, of course, the centre of atfcrac-  ^ tion, for here it*was welh known a  ,qtiaiut,civic ceremony would be observed:   Spectators were early on*  *the scene, all the windows ^in^ the  vicinity were occupied, and before  8   o'clock   much -animation   arose  from the arrival of tlie troops alloted  to this locality.   The South Wales  Borderers kept the. street on each  [side of the Griffin, and near at hand  were the Gordon Highlanders and  Highland Light Infantry, the -lat-  ,ter recently home from India.    The  metropolitan aud city police mude  a second line on the edge of ^ the*  footway behind the soldiers.  The red cord was drawn across  the boundary line, the city marshal  ���bad-taken up his-position, the-lord-  mayor and the sheriffs', with the  civic oflicers, had assembled on the  eastern side of the "Griffin in - one  group, when, at twenty minutes  past nine, the appearance*of an advance ."guard-- of mounted metropolitan police signified that the  earl' marshal's ^procession from St.  James' palace was approaching.  His lordship, enjoying quasi-  sovereignty, had come out to agree  with the proclamation and to allow  it to be announced in the city. lie  and his officials were quite prepared  for-tha arrival of the august,.visitors from the west end. The escort  of Royal Horse Guards accompanying *the gay pageant from St.  James'palace drew up in front of  tlie law courts, and the pursuivants,  heralds, and cavalcade generally  halted a short distance to the west  of the barrieiy where, a long string  ofY carriages came to alJ standstill.  Tlie pursuivant;' ; Everard Green  (Rouge Dragon), descended from his  coach, his gorgeous and quaint uniform ^attracting y much I attention,  and proceeded on footY-towards the  temporary barrier, having on each  aide ot him.a state, trumpeter, who  blew a fanfare which aroused the  city authorities. At once the city  marshal was on the alert, and advancing his - horse * a step or two,  while the lord mayor and his entourage looked on, ^demanded in a  loud voice, "WhoY^oes there ?'' to*  which the pursuivant replied, "The  officer. of ."arms, who demands entrance into the city to proclaim his  royal majesty Edward the Seventh."  The barrier was thereupon Jower-  ed, and tbe pursuivant, without  escort was admitted. After that  the entrance to the city was again  closed/ The pursuivant was -then  conducted.by the city marshal to  the lord-mayor, and handed him a  sealed document which hi$ lordship  THE CANADIAN  BANfcOF COMMERCE  .

' *  > "At-the court of St. James, 23rd  ���dayof January, 1901.     ���  " By .the lords pfw the "council.���It  js this ji&f'ordered1"- in-council that  .the.king's heralds'' and pursuivants  of arms^oY.attend at the* court of  St. iJames', on Thursday-next, the  24th. inst., at-.nine o'clock in the  forenoon,* to;- proceed with the  usual>ceremonies to proclaim ,his  majesty kingYlild ward VII.    .  (Signed) *    ,A. W: PITZROY."  Having received" this order for  proclamation, the delivery of which  was the pursuivant's mission,.. the  lord mayor ordered the heralds,, "to  be admitted that they might carry  out their duties within the city  boundaries. Thereupon the barrier  was again lowered, and the pursuivants departed in quest of the  heralds. The state trumpeters  played a fanfare, the city trumpeters responded with a blare, and the  eail marshal's procession went ou  into the city, headed by the1 Life  Guards.  It was a small but gay and picturesque pageant.' The'heralds and  pursuivants drove- in royal carriages, attended by the sergeants-  at-arms with their maces-and state  .'trumpeters. > The >; silk tabards of  the heralds, all richly embroidered,  .with gold ��� and bearing the Vcjiuar-  tered' arms, of Great" Britain' and  Ireland, attracted much attention.  As the civic procession.and that of  tho^earl" marshal' moved off city-  ' ward the spectacle was striking and  picturesque,' being full of both color  and quaintness. The national anthem was played, there were more  fanfares by 'the trumpeters, and  next a halt.was called at the corner  of Chancery. lane, where about ..a  hundred Life Guards were stationed  in addition to other troops, whose  combined presence served to invest  the scene with all the attractions  bf���a military display."   ' ~"  Here the lord . mayor, in compliance with- the order in council,  called upon the heralds to proclaim  his majesty within the jurisdiction  of the city. .. The trumpets again  sounded, and then Scott Gatty  (York herald) repeated the procla*  mation which had been read at St.'  James' palace, loudly exclaiming at  the, - close, "God save the king.','  There was another fanfare of trumpets, the crowd cheered tumultu-  ously, the national anthem was  played and then, amid many mani:  testations of enthusiasm, the caval:  cade proceeded on'its way.  VICTORIA AND JOHN BROWN;  >  In-her association with her immediate personal servants the queen was  singularly fortunate.' Possibly the  best known was that characteristic  Scotsman, John -Brown, -who was  boni at "The Bush," a -small farm  north of Balmoral castle, and began life as a stable boy at Balmoral.  Of rugged exterior - and singularly  uncourtly manners, 'he ' from the  first commended himself to the  prince consort, who made him a  gillie, and iu 1849 a personal attendant on himself and the queen. ' In  1851 his services were exclusively  demanded by the queen - when on  expeditions and jaunts in Scotland,  audit was; John Brown and John  Grant, the head keeper, who were  always taken on the secret trips of  her majesty and the prince.:: -  It is recorded of these two  brawny Scotsmen that on arrival at  some ye'ry poor inn they were commanded to wait on their royal mistress at meals, but, being too shy,  they deputed their duties to a  woman of the village. Tbe sayings  and doings of John Brown were  many and quaint. He was of the  stuff of which the king's jesters  were .made in the olden times. He  was very blunt of-,. speech, r and  never, gave way to'the Ywhims or  fancies of any one, not even excepting the queen herself. He was not  at all above reproving her majesty^  for any sartorial economy she might  exercise, and would often tell her  that her cloak was too old or her  bonnet too shabby. Once in SccftA  land, after a picnic luncheon taken:  at the Glassalt; Shiel, the queen  asked for a table to be. brought;  from the cottage at which she could  sit and make some sketches. Table-  after table failed to suit the queen's"'  taste,  and the  servants -were'-Afr  D. R. Wilkie, General Manager. ^  E. Hay, Inspector.  NolROn Branch���Burns Block, 221- Baker Street  J. M. LAY, Manage     ,   ,  their wits' end. Suddenly-<yBrown  awoke to tho situation, picked up  oue of ithe discarded tables;-planted  it before the queen, and said :  "It's na possible to makeuanither  table for you up here." -The}queen  admitted the common - sense . of  Brown's remark and used .the table.  His bluntness, however, was resented by many of the queen's relatives and "there -are-many' stories  told of' his curt speeches to the  prince of Wales and others of -the  royal family. 'Many of the -court  officials did not like him, andmore  than once there was some.intrigue-  ing to displace him. -But the queen  appreciated to the full that loyalty  and singleness that saved- her' -life  from the would-be - regicide O'Connor in 1872, and that so frequently  stood between her and the impertinence of vulgar1 sightseers. Among  his fellow servants John Brown was  greatly beloved. -They found him  rough, uneducated, and a stern disciplinarian, but strictly, just. He  would always take the weaker side  in a dispute, and obtained justice  for all the servants- from' the com-  mitte that ruled the household. He  was honest and trustworthy, and a  good fellow among his peers;. and,  for all his.- undoubted influence,  never became an upstart.  ^A failing, which the kindly queen  refused to recognize, beset -him in  his later years, but his death caused  genuine ' sorrow in the servants'  hall where his portrait* now hangs,  as in the queen's drawing room/ A  servant's tribute to, his memory  was : " I am -very sorry he is dead.  It would be better for us all if he  were still' alive." All Brown's  brothers passed into .the queen's  service. Donald 'Brown went-to  Osborne, Hugh became; keeper.' of  the kennels' at Windsor, 7 James  Brown irwas, the* shepherd"1 at Balmoral, and Archibald Brown-was  made a > page'7 in the royal household. The Clarks were, cousins "to  the Browns, and Francis Clark took  John.Brown's place as personal  attendant to the queen .after his  death. _ .Francis, himself, is dead  now and his brother took his post.  The, Grants have also held positions  in the royal family as valets, messengers, and keepers. John Grant's  daughter is housekeeper' at Balmoral.  Compound  Syrup .

SUPREME COURT BUSINESS  Another Mining Case.  When the supreme court was  called to order at 11 o'clock yesterday morning the case of J. O.  Marino vs. George Alexander of  Kaslo'and A. SproatandF. Mclnnis  of New Denver was called and  when an adjournment was taken at  4:30 in the afternoon only tlie  evidence of Marino had been heard.  Tho case will probably last until  tomorrow evening or Monday. In  this case the plaintiff claims about  $2400 for money that he alleges he  advanced to develop ' the��� Marion  mine at New Denver. Defendant  Alexander says that he was not a  party to any development scheme  and furthermore that, as far as he  isN concerned, the work was never  authorized; -The other defendants  say that development was to have  been done under a written agreement by which the plaintiff was to  obtain his" money from the' ore  which'he removed from the property. The defendants also state  that they are in no way responsible,  as they have protection .through  the agreement. Defendant Sproat  has a counter claim of about $1000  for money loaned and also for his  commission on the sale of the California "group.,��- ���     ' , -"��� 3 '- ���  Mr."Marino, who was in the,-'wit;  riess^ .box '"allJ day, gave evidence  chiefly- concerning" various" documents, ^letters,",etc. He will be  cross:examined this morning. The  case is a. complicated one and involves several interesting point's of  mining. law. ' Seven lawyers are  employed. Although only one case  remains to be disposed of after this  is concluded, it is quite probable  that court will last until the middle  of next week.  "-���;���< Judge'IrviDg's Decision.  , - >%" ->  -_' Yesterday-Mr: Justice Irving pre-  'pared a^written* judgment iu^tlie  case of Briggs-.vs. Newswander, in  "which"the" plaintiff was" suing for a  certain interest of money and shares  in the Cork{and^Dublin claims.' It  reads ai follows:" "'~ 7 ~7 7A A-.  ^-1 have looked-at the cases that  'have been handed to me this* morning; and turned' up ���* some cases las I,  night. -Now,* the matter about the  time the contract was entered into  stood ���*��� tliis ', way: The" plaintiff's  claims were about to run out, and  the time for adversing > the defendant's claims was*~about to��expire;  the "parties met together aud had  (one'agreement -drawn (B 1).. By  that agreement'it was altogether'  optional, in,express terms, whether  the defendant ~ should give tho  plaintiff'anything^ or nothing. A  conversation took .place in which  different sums were mentioned, first  one sum and then another sum. No  definite agreement seems < to have  been reached. - The parties then put  into writing the second agreement;  (B 2); then the. documents '-were  both signed and exchanged, the one  for the other.

" About illusory contracts, at page  132 ofjsix Ruling Cases I find .the  following with reference to tho  making of a contract:  Now there have been a number of  contracts in which,apparent contracts have been made, the first I  cite is Davies vs. Davies, it was first,  heard by Kekewichand then on appeal.   That was 'a case on a con ���  venant contained in a dissolution ox'  partnership���the retiring partner,  who received a large sum of money,  covenanted to retire"from the partnership, "so far as the -law allowsi  from the business," and not to trade  in any way to affect the business:  directly or indirectly of the continuing partners.   In an action bj  the surviving partners to restrain  a similar business being carried on  in Middlesex, Mr. justice Kekewich  thought that that covenant to retire from the business "so far as the  law allows" was too vague for thtt  eourt to deal with.    I don't know  anything that expresses this case  nearer than that "they ask the law  to do for them" what they had not  made up their minds about themselves."  Mr. justice Fry : "I think it can  be enforced either directly or indirectly." Then in re Vince there  was a partnership under a written  agreement appending a statement  of the assets and liabilities of the  business. The agreement provided  that in the event of the borrower  being unable to pay any interest by  reason of deficiency of the profits a  "due allowance should be made by  W. Baxter'to John Vince in respect  of the same,In a fair and reasonable  manner."    The* borrower became  Japan Tea. of all kinds to suit  your taste. Sun Cme'd."
