"/Victoria, March 3.���[Special to  ^The Tribune].���The differences between the fraternal orders and the  medical society, are said to be in a  ' fair way toward settlement. If a  Settlement is not effected it is not  unlikely that the Medical Society  Act will be amended so as to place  doctors on the same footing as  other trades unionists coming to  the province.,  According to customs returns the  Kootenay exports are 40 per cent  of the province's total, which is  significant. This is all the product  of mines, which, if smelted, refined  and manufactured in Kootenay,  would make a still more significant  showing.  The third reading of the bill incorporating Slocan City is set for  tomorrow.    It will probably pass.  The government has practically  refused to pay over the money appropriated at the last session' in aid  of the merchants whom the contractor for the Molly Gibson wagon  road left in the lurch.

Before the cars, which  were    filled  with ,- coke -' for   the'  Boundary smelters,, could be moved  their contents/ had .ibo be/thrown  into the'gulch.    It  is said that'the'  car    which   left " the" track' was  the ~ same   one twhich   caused' /the  trouble'west of > this bridge about  a week ago and which resulted in  considerable damage.    There 'was a  defect in one of the wheels.    The  wrecking crew made rapid headway,  as the ^greater part of.the bridge  had to be rebuilt After the rubbish  was removed.   No, one happened to  be on the cars at the time, but the  men_/along_ with conductor ClaA  wb'o were in the caboose were badly  shaken up.   During the day many  citizens   visited  thev  scene."

When it came to a  vote the two delegates' from Rossland and the. three from Trail were  against.the "resolution, while all  the;rest were for' it. The reason  for the vote was that the delegates  had, been instructed by tho local  boards.,  There-were several changes made  in the constitution', the most important being that "the annual fees to  "be paid by the local boards to the  association   was   raised   from   $15  to $25. ' .   J. B. McArthur of Rossland, who  was. present, stated that the citi-  zeiis of Rossland had abandoned  the idea of establishing the chamber of mines, as it was impossible  for one community to bear the large  expense attaching to such an institution.  On Friday night the delegates  were entertained at a banquet. In  a speech by Paul Johnson of the  Greenwood smelter, who was in  attendance, he pointed out the fact  that the Boundary was rapidly  coming to the front. He said that  there was an immense quantity of  ore there,'and as it was of a low  grade it was necessary, to bring the  country well to the front, to have  low fuel and freight rates. As far  as low treatment rates were concerned he said that would naturally  came. He declared tnat the mining companies there were backed  by a large amount of capital, and  if,-.the treatment rates were too  high, each" company would erect its  oyrn smelter, and this would lower  the/rate.

The Rossland Miner, in discussing the present, smelting capacity  of the several p&mts in the interior,  places their rlssflty capacity at 3450  tons, but Tidcls- that increases at  present proposed will bring this up  to 0050 touts. This means that the  men at present in tlie smelting  business - have improvements in  hand f'jr the doubling of their capacity. This means that extensions already decided 7ipon will re-  qubra- just twice the present  aijaooAit of coal and cok e which the  Faunae coal company has so far  been unable to supply.

BROW'S WEST COAL FIELDS  Why Hill Shouldn't Control. -  The following interesting correspondence appears in the Phoenix  ^Pioneer- of the 2nd instant: -  ' The difficulties experienced by  tthe British Columbia smelters- in  ���obtaining adequate supplies of coke  hy reason of the contracts entered  into .by the.... coal company with  American smelters, are known to  you and need no enlargement here,  jfenflice it to say that if such conditions were possible under the control of the mines by Canadians, is  it not likely that these difficulties  will continue in a much more aggravated form" with the' coal mines iu  possession of Americans, whose direct and,- personal ��� interests 'are jn  . the advancement of ' the- American*  ��� smelting trust.    It is notf and can-  , not be their intention that smelting  in British Columbia, sliould obtain  : a firm footing, aiid if they cannot  .stop it outright their play undoubt-  ��� edly will be to allow it to.continue  under such conditions as the Ameri-  ��� can smelting trust'- may see fit to  .impose, and with- the control of-  'British Columbia coal fields, ou  \which the profitable operation v of  four smelters is ,. so entirely de-  ]j>ondent, it strikes me that unless  \we are able to control- them the  (situation is absolutely, in their  lhands. J _  SttuLt-the control of the'coal lands  has passed.into the hands" of Mr.  .Hill, Mc .Morgan    and   associates  seems to be "beyond question, and  though I suppose the_nominal control and management will still re-  . main as at present,  I predict tliat  it will only be so until such time as  .they, are able "by the constructing  �� of a line froin the mines to connect  \with the Great Northern "system, to  H-o command the situation as to tell,  ' ffihe people of British Columbia to,  gtP tbo the deviL J The motive power  dir��ao^g the Toronto* Globe's -attack lis apparent,   and   for -.your  clearer- \u��derstanding! pf the situa-v  . tion I wfttt relate a few* facts in con?1  , nectiou wiihttho Crow's Nest Coal  i Company," Uho .-acquisition' of the-  l B.  C. Southern ^charter   and'  the  liiual construction.qf tthe road.  .���Some   eight or -t^n years ago a  dkmtev was' obtained -by-(colonel  Baker,,   who "was -at "that, time' a  member <tf the provincial house, for  ���irline^from^ihe-eastern-boundary-  of British Columbia to the,coast..  This charter carried with-' it a certain land subsidy, which included  250,000 acres of coal lands which,  at the time of the granting of the  -charter, was set aside as a-portion  / of the. land to bo .granted in ac-  , cordance with tlie  subsidy". -This  " charter was   hawked   pretty well  . over the world to everybody ex-  . cept the 0. P. E.   Years -passed on,  ; and it became necessary, in its plan  i of development, for the C. P. R. to  r open up Southern British Columbia.  '.They found   they would  have to  (deal with the'then holders of the  ( charter, who happened to be Rob-  cert Jaffray, president of the Toronto'  *ftetofi, and George A:vCox of Toronto, Who is also ^interested in the  Globe.   Part of the undertaking bf  these gentlemen, whereby they surrendered "the. charter .for the construction of the-line, was-that the  British Columbia Southern should  transfer "to" the "Crow's "Nest Coal  ��� Company-'the entire coal area, 250,-  ���000 acres, aforementioned. The  government 'of Canada, however,  modified this to this extent, that  the British Columbia Southern was  . to convey to the Dominion of Canada 50,000-acres of coal lands to be  ��� held by the Dominion in trust, and  not dealt with as long as the coal  i company operated their mines and  ��� sold their - coal at a maximum figure named by the government.  In addition to this, the British  ' Columbia Southern Company stipulated that if this 50,000 acres  were  necessary in the interests of rthe  company, it was equally necessary  that the. railway company should  , lie protected} and therefore it ,was  /agreed'thatT of this 250,000 acres  the   British.;   Columbia:   Southern  -.Oompany should retain six sections,  3810 acres; these six sections to be  selected  aud   taken lip after  the  Dominion had  selected its 50,000  THE CANADIAN  BANK OF COMMERCE  wrrn wmen is amatxsamated  THE BANK OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.

Time went' on, the. mines- were  opened "' up; the British Columbia  smelters commenced to operate, the  coke ovens' were built, coke supplied and" everything going swimmingly. Time came during the  mining strike in "West Kootenay  when it'became impossible to" con-;  tinue to operate tlie smelters, which  were necessarily closed 'down,' and  the coal company advised, .that,- no  further coke would be required for  the present. This advice was con-/  sidered sufficient -justification fori  the coal company entering into  a contract with American smelters,  for three 'months, I think (though  of 'this date I am not absolutely  certain), for the entire coke output  of the mines.  Before the' expiration of' that1  contract, 'the ;smelters in- British'  Columbia started up,- 'and the coal  company had ' great' difficulty % in  meeting the requirements; so much  sb.'iii fact, that to relievip the situation, the C.TP.R., which.had a contract with, the Crow's Nest Pass  Coal Company for "steam coal for  use": on the. British Columbia  Southern * railway'' and on - the  Kootenay steamers were unable Jk>  obtain" it, and had to purchase"  their "coal, and are today .purchasing'  their coal for this section at. Leth-  bridge, paying at those mines "50  cents a ton more than they "were  bound to under their contract with  tho Crow's Nest, * carried it sight  west past the Crow's-��� Nest mines,  and 'delivered it on board ��he  Kootenay steainers. ,,  In the face of all this "'and after  the expiration of -the contract entered into by the coal company  with the American smelters, that  company entered into * another contract with the American'- smelters  to supply them - with several hundred tons of coke per day. They  could not meet the requirements of  both markets,-and had the C.P.-R.  sat down tamely and' accepted the  situation, with-its danger to the"  smelting industry of British Columbia, that company would have been  the subject of the hardest criticism.  They protested against it and what  followed? The virulent attacks o��,  the Globe,' which 'cited in their  charges' only incidents of years'gohe  by, all of which were 'threshed "but j  and settled by the railway commission years ago. They established  no new cause for complaint against  the company, and conveyed to the  minds of those in the east, and  those in British, Columbia;', who  understood" the situation, the' one  and true impression, that the Globe  had for the first time inits history  been prostituted to individual ends.  It is -< enough to .make honest old  George Brown turn in his grave.1 '  Mr. Hill will not build any lines  east and 'west through British  Columbia. What he .would be  tempted -,to do, and what he is  doubtless striving to do, is to-run  spurs from his main line to such  points in' 'British Columbia as  appear to be the best producing  sections. In this way he can 'tap  and take out of the province for  treatment at the smelters along his  own main line all the ores of British  Columbia without expensive opera  tion, and without adequate return  to Canada for the benefits he would  derive from our country.  1PEBIAL BANK  HEAD  OFFICE.

'Ike White,' the World's  star reporter, who rose to fame, by  discovering the identity of Norcross,  the would-be murderer of, Russell,  Sage, was, for example, summoned  from a warm, bed one wintry night  by a,telegram that bade him report  at the "office immediately'for a'trip  to Alaska. He obeyed mechanically,  and was shown a paragraph printed  in the World some days before. ,It'  related to the discovery of a beautiful (white child by an English "correspondent while traveling'. over*  ���the .Canadian Pacific, r, The/.story  saidt the child was held in bondage*  by a tribe of Indians. > The, World  reprinted it from a London paper,  and,'when half a dozen persons had  inquired in'letters why. the World  didi not rescue -the beautiful girl  destined to become the slave e of a  savage chief, Mr. Pulitzer, decided,  to make the attempt. Whitetook  thejmidriiglit train, and as the location was vague, wandered about for  a-week or more in the snow-covered  steppes of Canada before he. ran  down, his quarry. Greatly, to his  and the paper's - disappointment',  however, he found the child an  illegitimate' half-breed, who the  nearest' Catholic ,priest,' said .had  been born in the tribe, and who was  perfectly contented with her .lot,  refusing to be rescued. ��� The enterprise that promised such unlimited  advertisement thus turned out to'  be a fiasco.   *-���..    . -4     ,���. _���,<-- ,'  Ward Bros.  ���^reaLestate^anq. ���  INSURANCE AGENTS  Agents for J. & J.

Dr. Stoddard, who has been confined at the general hospital for the

"^ The recent thaw has again put
the west end of Baker street into ft
very niudldy condition and traffic ia
greiitly hampered. The .street is
beingpaved with a heavy ..coat of

will be planked.
George Emory, who is at present
serving a sentence of six months at
tho provincial on tho charge of
theft will tomorrow bo brought
before magistrate Crea9e, and
charged with obtaining a check for

Company under false pretenses.
"^ Mrs. M. L. Rattray, who is now
conducting the Nelson Business College in the Victoria Block, will today move to the Broken Hill block
at the corner of Baker and Ward
streets. The new, rooms are more
commodious and are much more
satisfactory than the present ones.
N The new cottage annex of. the
general'hospital is now in'use by
the management and it is giving
the best of satisfaction. The wards
of the main building are full and
two patients are now confined in
the new building. There is still
accommodation for six more patients.
It is reported here that more
active development work has been
resumed at the' Poorman mine and
that on Saturday the staff was
considerably increased. For".some
time past little or no. development
has been done and the work has
been expended in stoping and^
removing the~ore. '   "
The long line of track which was
laid at the new yards of the C. P. R.
has'not been ballasted, but will be

There* are .now two vacancieVori
thestaff at tlie provincial jail, one
being "caused by 'the 'departure'of

handed iu on - Saturday. Captain
Fitzstubbs /has wired* the officials
at'Victoria concerning the matter,
and it is ; likely that "the/appointments will1 be made in a few days.
." Harry/Parkin,1" who "resides - at
the rear,of the Royal Bank of Canada, is. again . ih trouble with his
wife. On Saturday they got'intoa
row, and his wife went 'to Mr.
Crease, where she obtained a. warrant, for his. arrest. Parkin" was
locked up,about 10'o'clock Saturday night and" will come before
magistrate Crease for trial-at "ID
o'clock this morning. Not long ago
he was arrested on the same charge,

Taken Against Smallpox
- Owing to the fact that a number
of smallpox ' cases exist' in East
taken timely steps and have placed
a rigid quarantine against that district. It is reported that there are
a number of cases at Fernie, one at
Moyie, and it was also'reported
that there, was one at Cranbrook
and one at Fort Steele. The districts surrounding these .points are
also said to be infected with the
The quarantine imposed by tlie
local officers is so complete that it
will be impossible for a passenger
from auy point in East Kootenay
who has been exposed to the plague
to gee into the city, and should
result inkeepingNelsonfreefrom it.„
The regulations that have been
issued are signed by mayor
Fletcher and; medical health officer
Dr. LaBau,. and recite that each
passenger from East Kootenay
must be provided with a certificate,
signed by the medical health officer
at the point from which they came,
to the effect that the party has not
been in ,the least way exposed^ to
disease and lias also complied with
the other regulations. If they do
not have credentials they will have
to return whence they came.
Dr. G. H.„ H. Symonds has been appointed quarantine inspector, and
on the arrival of the boats, both
from Kootenay Landing and Bonner's Ferry, he will see that all passengers before they leave the boats
are provided with the proper papers. Printed certificates have
been forwarded from here to all
the medical officers of East Koote1
nay. This will put passengers to
very little inconvenience, and it is
thought that the regulations will
be readily complied with.
Dr.. LaBau said yesterday that
every precaution would be; taken
and the restrictions that had" now
been taken would be carried out in
every respect. Last year, it cost
the city a large sum, and it is- intended, by making this early start,
to reduce the expenses to a comparatively small amount. ■'*.
When the, Kokanee from the
Landing and the International from
Bonner's Ferry arrived lit the city
wharf last .evening, they were at
once inspected by Dr. Symonds.'
Although there yeei-e a' largo 'number of passengers on board, only
one or two had come from East
Kootenay, and as they had been
warned of the quarantine against
them they were provided with
certificates. The passengers on th&
International were principally from
Kaslo,' and not knowing of the
quarantine they thought chief
Jarvis, who accompanied inspector
Symondf, was searching the boat

Last Week's Receipts at the Smelter,
Without any visible < Reasons being assigned,'the shipments to the
Hall Mines smelter during the past
week" were much smaller than those
previously received." The total shipments did not reach 500 tons, while
the week before they were nearly
800 tons.   Only "a   few properties
shipped, and<-they,were the princi:
pal mines of the district.' About 00
tons were received from the Kaslo
district,'the greater portion of this
coming from " the - American Boy.
It has been' two weeks1 since any
has'-been received from ~ that section. - Both tlie Arlington and the'
Queen Bess-of the Sloean made a

Money for Smelters.
Henry Roy of Rossland, the managing director of the London "Consolidated Mining Company, who
has been at Montreal for- the <past
month, returned to Nelson on Saturday. Mr. Roy said that the money
market of the east was rather close-
as far as mining interests were concerned, but the capitalists' seemed
to be willing to invest their money,
in tlie erection of smelters. i- One of
Mr. Ray's missions to the east was
to form a company for tihe purpose
of erecting a smelter at Crawford
Bay and he said he met, with"]good
success. _____'
Iron Ore Mining Resumed. r
Work is to be started on the new.
iron ore property lately , purchased
by J. G. Devlin and "situated on the-
south side of the river ,just below"
Slocan Junction. Mr. J>evlin leaves
this morning, accompanied by ,four
miners for the property.' , The ledge
is so situated that very little work
is required .to mine the ore and
shipping to the Hall Mines smelter
will be resumed at; an, .early date.
For the present the ore will be
taken across the river on barges.

Superintendent Downie Arrives.
William Downie of Vancouver,
lately superintendent of the Thompson and Cascade division, now
superintendent of the lines of the

Troup, arrived inthe city last evening and will take charge of his duties this morning. On his. arrival
he was met by a number of the local officials of the company and was
given a hearty welcome. The last
time Mr. Downie.was in Nelson was
in 1893, and he said last evening
that lie was surprised at the rapid
advancement the Queen City of the
Kootenays had made. At that
time the smaller towns which now
exist were not known, and Nelson,
as it were, was the only -town in
this district. ' Mr. Downie came
west from Toronto about. 15 years
