 5pS8*,��Sa;ffl-A  DAILY^EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  ymy$m  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  NINTH YEAR.  THE TRIBUNE: NELSON B. C. MONDAY, MARCH 11, 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  MIMEB WILL  MAKE TERMS  For the Surrender of General Botha's Army.  REPORTS ARE PREMATURE  AT LEAST A FORTNIGHT WILL BE  REQUIRED  Before There Can Be a Consultation  Among the Boer Generals and Definite Arrangements Made.  New York, March 10.���In a despatch dated London 1 a. m. Mr. I.  N. Ford, correspondent of the New  York Tribune, says: There were  many rumors in the air last night  respecting the negotiations between  general Botha and lord Kitchener,  but there was no authentic news.  The British government has been  consulted, but sir Alfred Milner is  lord Kitchener's political adviser  and is in a position, to settle the  terms of amnesty and peace.  The outlines of these terms which  are published are based upon conjecture and the statement that general Botha has communicated the  conditions of peace to Dewet, Steyn  and other Boer leaders still in arms  is incredible. A" fortnight at least  will be required before there can be  a consultation among the Boer generals and meanwhile there will be  daily rumors from Pretoria and  Capetown. -"  The fact that Botha and Viljoen  have been  willing to discuss with  lord Kitchener"the terms of surrender offers a strong warrant for the  hope that tlie  end of the hopeless  conflict is in sight, but those most  conversant with the character of  tlie leaders believe that   Delarey,  Steyn and Dewet. will offer resistance   to  any   proposals made  by  their colleagues.   Even those most  skeptical respecting the results of  lord Kitchener's diplomacy are convinced that the capture of Dewet  would end the war, siuce the Transvaal Boers would then be at liberty  to make the best terms possible.  The reinforcements have not been  stopped and there are no signs at  the   war   oflice  that   anybody   iu  authority is looking for the immediate collapse of  the Boer cause.  The Kaffir market was not affected  by the peace rumors.   While there  is no belief among_the South Africans here that the British government will agree to pay any indemnity   to   the burghers still under  arrest or who are prisoners of war,  it is considered probable that something may be done to assist them if  there is a full and unconditional  surrender.  For example, there might be distribution among them of the captured sheep, oxen and. horses and  also of food supplies. The country  is impoverished, and a a large number of women,,children and other  non-combatants are now under  guard at various posts. Whenever  peace is made a temporary arrenge-  ment will be necessary for feeding  and caring for a considerable part  of the population, and sir Alfred  Milner will naturally be anxious to  employ the fortified laagers and  distribute the burghers and their  families among the villages and  farming regions where they can  settle down and become self-supporting. There is no likelihood  that the burghers will be bought  off or pensioned, but a wise administrator like sir Alfred will seek to  remove discontent by a distribution of the captured supplies and  stock. Sir Alfred understands more  clearly than anyone else the dangers  of the transition period of race relations which must follow the close  of the lamentable war.  Military Experts Disagree.  Military experts are divided respecting the utility and necessity of  the military changes proposed by  the secretary of war. They perceive an evident intention on the  part of the military authorities to  imitate German and French methods  of organization of separate army  corps in districts, with annual  maneuvers, but they do not agree  upon the practical efficiency of the  proposed system without conscription. The trend of military opinion  is strongly in the direction of universal military service, but the  ministry does not venture to propose it, advocating rather the adoption of a tentative scheme for six  army corps, with a systematic use  of the reserves, both the militia and  the volunteers.  Before the war in ��� South Africa  the headquarters staff plumed, itself upon its ability to mobilize and  send abroad two army corps as soon  as sea transportation could be provided. O^i^^i'mtched without  serious ��p^^^^|?derick  now estimaeefsi3^^^f��^ghteen  months, with one ^ffSS^^giim the  colonies, six corps have been brought  into the field. He now proposes a  plan by which three corps with  cavalry and artillery shall always  be in readiness for an emergency  with a decentralized administration  and annual maneuvers in six districts.  Singularly enough, the first army  corps sent to South Africa was not  kept together and as the war proceeded the divisional system was  abandoned and tlie army reorganized into brigades in order to get  rid of red tape.  It is strange that Mr. Broderick  should propose six Aldershots when  one broke down in South Africa  under the sheer weight of red tape.  While military men applaude the  secretary of war and declare under  their breath that he is deliberating  in opening the way for conscription,  there are already undertones of dissatisfaction over the growth of militarism and the neglect of officials  to profit by the real lessons of the  campaign, such as lack of adaptability and flexibility of officers, inefficiency of staff work, ignorance  of the art.of making intrenchments,  rigidity of the transport service, defects in the artillery,, dependence  upon infantry when mounted forces  were indispensable and > the supreme value of the.auxiliary reserves" provided by Canada -and  Australia. Aldershot was on  trial at Colenso and Ma-  gersfontein ;_and _. failed; and now  there will be. six Aldershots. with.  German and French maneuvers  a scale out of proportion to the resources of the voluntary system. It  is easy for him to work out a  scheme on paper but veterans think  that the men will not be forthcoming to fill by voluntary enlistments  six army corps.  While there is a sense of unreality about thisJ paper scheme of  military reorganization, the increased cost is a real enough  addition to the expenses of the  army. On a peace .footing it will  be ��10,000,000, with no prospect of  any diminution in the future, and  this incement is proposed when the  army estimates for next year are  ��88,000,000, with provision for only  four months' military operations in  South Africa, and when the lowest  figures for the aggregate cost of  the war now approximate ��150,-  000,000, or considerably more than  double the expense of the Crimean  campaign.     Whether or  not   Mr.  for financing the war. He would  strike the imperialistic note in proposing a tariff with a large increase  in indirect taxation and the basis  for a zollverein within the empire.  Sir Michael Hicks-Beach is au old-  school free trader who cannot be  depended upon to open the way for  imperial federation. He loses sight  of the colonies, just as Mr. Broderick does in reorganizing the army  without availing himself of the  auxiliary reserves which saved the  situation in South Africa.  SAILORS REFUSED TO WORK  TWELVE OP THE OAMPERDOWN'S  GREW IN IRONS.  Strathconas in Montreal.  Montreal, March 10. ��� Strathcona's Horse arrived here at 9  o'clock this morning and were received by a crowd- of 5000 people  and a brass band and given a warm  welcome. .._The regiment was disbanded on the train, each man  having received two months' leave  of absence. The men could not be  discharged, as no order of disband  had been issued by the imperial  authorities. One is expected in the  next Gazette. About 40 men left  on the C. P. R. express this morning  for the west. The remainder of the  regiment spent the afternoon receiving friends and driving around  the town.   THE APATHETIC LONDONER  British Tramp Steamer From Cuba to  New York Has a Troublesome Voyage.  LITTLE  INTEREST * MANIFESTED  IN FOREIGN AFFAIRS.  Enterprises of American Syndicates-  Court -Gossip--King _ Edward  Decorating His Friends.  Broderick is dealing with imaginary  soldiers in his scheme for a reorganized army the paper must be paid  and the tax gatherer must put on  the screws.  Increased Taxation.  The chancellor of the exchequer  is expected to propose in his budget speech an enormous bulk of  fresh taxation and at the same time  to float a loan ranging from ��40,-  000,000 at the lowest estimate to  ��54,000,000 which will be nearer the  truth. Free traders of the Cobden  school are insisting that ho must  add four pence or six pence to the  income tax and reduce the limit of  taxation to ��100. Shrewder finan-.  cial experts are warning him against  this course and advising him to  borrow ��54,000,000, since he can repay it by the operation of the sinking funds in six years with the  present scale of taxation. Other  experts are emphatic in declaring  that the income taxation has  reached the point of exhaustion,  especially as trade is hampered and  showing signs of decline and as the  suspension of the gold' output of  South Africa has caused a stringency in the money market, and  they are advocating revenue duties  on sugar and other articles of general consumption. '  Sir Michael Hicks-Beach is probably the most perplexed and unhappy man in the United Kingdom,  for whatever he suggests will be  condemned as inadequate and oppressive. Mr. Chamberlain alone  would have the courage required'  London, Ma/ch 10.���In the great  battle for the empire foreign affairs  now escape the observation of the,  English press, unless the German  emperor is personally concerned in  them.   What is going on in China  is not understood, save as Dr. Morrison .throws a side light on it" in  the Times.     One-anomaly, in. the  European policy follows another at  ��n j Pekin, the last one being the necessity for the permanent fortification  of the embassies,. while the court  by   a vagary   of   the   diplomatic  imagination is left free and independent of foreign influences. American affairs, such as the inauguration of the president aud the failure  of the canal treaty, pass almost unnoticed.   There is no unfriendliness  to America, but the newspapers are  filled with references  to the dis-"  placement of English goods in the  home   market   by   American importations just as there were similar tributes to German enterprise  five years ago.  Financiers are expecting that  American bankers will carry off a  large proportion of the new loan,  _even_if_it_be_put_on_the_market_in_  May, when money is expected to be  easy, and the completion of the  underground system in London is  left without a struggle to American  syndicates. One, under Mr. Yerkes,  is enlarging the Hampstead and  Charing Cross systems; another,  under Mr. Johnson and Mr. Benjamin Cable, is making arrangements for'the- development and  extension of the Waterloo line and  the construction of several other  railways, and another is carrying  out electric transactions in the  suburbs on a large scale. :,.,,..  Appointments for court, including  the duchess of Buccleugh for  mistress of the robes, and ladies in  waiting, prove that queen Alexandra will follow the lines in ceremonial and accept the high standards of queen Victoria.  Decorations are showered upon  the king's friends almost too  rapidly for observation. Sir  Thomas Lipton, professor Herbert  Herkimer, general Pole-Carew and  lord Marcus Beresford are among  those favored with appointments to  the Royal Victoria Order.  As the duke of Devonshire has  leased many of the king's horses, it  is clear that the turf has lost a  royal patron.  There is a privy council at Marlborough house today, but the next  great event of the new reign will  be the departure next Saturday of  the duke and duchess of Cornwall  and York for' the colonies on the  Ophir, which will be fitted up as a  magnificent and comfortable pleasure yacht. The king and queen  will witness. the sailing of the  Ophir, and the passage of the ship  around the world will be a new circuit of imperial interest.  Nkw York, March 10.���Sunday  plumduff aboard the Camperdown  for dinner and station house tea  and rye bread "for-- supper were the  rations served to many members of  the crew of the ^British' tramp  steamer Camperdown today. The  ship came in with'ia load of Cuban'  sugar consigned tb Munson & Co.,  and instead of proceeding to her  dock after leaving quarantine she  dropped her'anchor off the Statue  of Liberty and captain Smith sent  for the police boat patrol.  When the police steamer came  alongside the'Camperdown, the police found 12 men in .irons charged  with mutiny.' Six of the prisoners  were firemen and six seamen. The  patrol transferred the- prisoners to  pier A, from which dock they were  transported1 in patrol wagons-to a  police station, where they arrived  in handcuffs and a charge of mutiny was recorded against them on  the station house blotter.- The  Camperdown while on - a voyage  from Cuba to. New York grounded  on Cape Lookout shoals of the North  Carolina coast-' on March 4. She  was gotten.off two days afterward  without' assistance or difficulty and  uninjured.'1,    ' '   ''"\  ' When captain Smith < gave orders  for thesteamer "to" proceed, to her  destination, part of her crew mutinied, refusing-to obey the order to  -proceed, but .offered no violence:  According to captain Smith's interpretation-of .jthe-'law, refusal to  obey orders .constitutes mutiny.  The'British-consul'was>notified this-  afternoon that the men were locked  up in the Church street station, and  it is probable- that they will be  taken before a United States commissioner tomorrow. The Camperdown remained at anchor.  EASTERN CANADA   TELEGRAMS.  Peterboro.���The office ��� of the  Peterboro Examiner was. burned on  Saturday. Loss $35,000. Insurance $15,000.

York,   March    10.-  New York, March 10.���The  White Star steamer Germanic from  Liverpool and ������ Queenstown arrived  off the Sandy Hook, lightship on  Saturday at 1:30 p. in., but was not I spent in California  seen   by  the  observers until she' to. be   via  one .of   the.  passed the hook at ,4:20 p. m.  After  passing   the   hook the  fog which  prevailed  all  the   afternoon  and  lightened enough for her to pass in  settled down With a determination  tb stay, forcing the Germanic to anchor for the night.   On arrival at  quarantine   the   captain   said   the  steamer   was   delayed   by stormy  weather from March; 1st to March  5th.   The gales from the west were  so strong and the high head seas  were so heavy  that the   steamer  only    made    half .speed.    -   The.  weather   continued   stormy   with  strong winds thereafter but with  decreased force.   The. time- of passage was nine days, nine hours and  five minutes.   Among the passengers who arrived on the Germanic  .was   captain   J. H. C. Ogilvie   of  Strathcona's   Horse   on    his    way  home to Canada.   Captain Ogilvie  has received a commission in the  famous' Gordon   Highlanders   and  will   return   to the front after a  brief stay at home.  Emperor all Right.

Intervention by the powers is not desirable unless they are -prepared to  back up their protests.  There are reports from the province of Shan Si that the Chinese are  constructingextensive fortifications  and mobilizing large bodies of  troops to resist an advance of the  allies. General Chaffee refuses to  _aIlow_the_decapitation_of__several_  notorious Boxers guilty of murder  whom the Chinese have condemned.  The Americans are the only foreigners who have carried out no executions in Pekin.  routes, with possibly a visit to Yellowstone park, which the president  has been trying to see for several  years.  Jewelry and Precious Stones.  New York,   March 10.���George  Minnel,   jewelry   examiner of the  public stores in this city, in a report  to    appraiser    Wakeman   on   the  importation of precious stones for  the month of February, shows that  there is an enormous demand for  costly personal adornment by the  fashionable   and   wealthy   classes,  which is significant of prosperity in  the trade.    During last month, the  shortest in the year, precious stones  and   pearls   aggregating   in value  $1,770,075 were entered at this port  from abroad, the greater portion of  which were consigned to merchants  in this city.   Mindel's figures show  an increase last month over February, 1900, of nearly, $1,200,000 and  over   $500,000   more-than in any  February  in the past five years.  The appraisement' in this city last  month for cut stones was $1,171,313  and for uncut ones $604,760.

Many large growers have lost heavily, and if something is riot done in  the future tons of marketable  oranges- arid' lemons will go to  waste. Thousands of dollars have  already ..been lost'.to the fruitgrowers of southern California,  with mote to follow, even under  the most favorable, circumstances.

Conservative newspapers in  Ontario do not take kindly to the  proposition' of the temperance  ��� people that the Laurier government  should assume the ownership and  management of the liquor business  of'Canada.  " The Grand Forks Gazette suggests that the government appoint  . Joseph Martin as receiver for the  town of Wellington. Such a job  would suit the temperament of a  man who desires to be the whole  show' and take ' up the tickets as  well. '  The Trail delegates to the Greenwood convention have submitted  their report to the Trail board of  trade. They regard as suicidal the  granting of the Hill railway charter,  but the Hill delegates so controlled  she convention that they shut off  all attempts to discuss the matter  with persistent cries of "question."  In the east the organs of the  Crow's' Nest Pass Coal Company  assert that the resolution passed at  the Greenwood meeting of the Hill  delegates binds the associated  boards of trade of British Columbia  to petition the federal and provincial parliaments to grant the Hill  application for a railway charter.  This no doubt expresses what the  Hill delegates desired, but it is not  true. The resolution in question  does not mention either the Hill  charter, or any other charter, for  ���the reason that it is contrary to  regulations of the associated boards  of trade to petition in favor of the  granting of any specified railway  charter.  That the endorsement of the Hill  railway scheme, by the Greenwood  meeting of tlie associated boards of  trade was a cut and dried affair, is  now generally admitted. J. F.  Bledsoe, who represented the Vancouver Citizens' Association at.the  Greenwoodimeeting, has given his,  views upon the matter. He says in.  effect that anyone who gave the  proceedings of the convention any  thought could arrive at but one  conclusion, that the convention was  carefully packed with Hill delegates.  There was nothing but the Hill version of the scheme discussed. The  delegates who moved in the matter  had all their information and literature supplied them, and their every  action betokened previous rehearsals. They even seemed fearful of allowing the other side of the  question to be laid before them,  and voted down an amendment  that the government should enquire  into the probable effects of granting  such a charter. With the majority  of the delegates their sole object  was to pass a declaration favorable  to tho Hill scheme, and they railroaded it through as speedily as  they could.  During the last [fiscal year the  public education of the province  cost $389,367.39. Of this the provincial government found $307,-  479, the balance representing the  penditures of the cities of Nanaimo,  New Westminister, Vancouver aud  ...    . c  Victoria. The expenditure upon  school buildings was but $22,509.90  which doubtless accounts for the  total expenditure for the year being lower than for . the previous  year. In the four ridings of West  Kootenay the cost of education is  given at $40,502.15. Based upon  the average daily attendance the  cost of education for the entire province was $21.29 per pupil, so that  when Nelson enters upon the management of its'own'schoolsits 'peo*-'  pie will have to make up the difference between this figure and the  per capita grant of $15. which the  government proposes shall be the  limit of provincial assistance.  TflK more companies there are to  divide the legitimate railway'business of Kootenay the more will the  people of Kootenay be' called upon  to pay for their railway service.  It costs more to operate two railways than it does to operate one,  and railway companies generally  agree upon fixing their rates so tliat  their operating expenses are covered. Kootenay stands ' to profit  more by securing control of the  railways it has than by duplicating  them.         '   The St. Paul version of the Hill  deal in the stock of the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal Company is that Hill has  secured $500,000 of the stock and  has given a .guarantee to purchase  0000 tons of coal per day. If there  is any fuel left it is presumed that  the British Columbia smelters will  get ifc.        '  The Bosun Shuts Down,  Silvertonian.  Last Saturday a cablegram was  received by manager Sandiford, of  the Bosun mine, Ordering the immediate closing down of that prop-  erty. _ The_men were  accordingly  burned. The old shacks, of which  there are quite a number, will be  torn down and removed. The company has completed the construction of a sidewalk on the north side  of Baker street from below the  Sherbrooke hotel to the station and  freight sheds. By next Saturday  the steam shovel will be repaired  and then all the tracks of the yard  will be ballasted.  9  - y- 0*  ��� 00 ���  ' ^SSj^S*  00 ��� 0!0* ^0  '725b '___ZH_'___^'  f*S>' 00' ^' 00'  00.^.0^.  tz:xzxxz:zx:zzxxxxxxxxx:x:x:xrxxxxxxx;  NEW BELTS  WITH RIBBON  AND SPIKE ENDS  rvine & Co.

Mr. Sandiford knows nothing  that should precipitate such action'  upon the part of the Bosun owners  in England, and is awaiting  further details by mail.

On the contrary tlie local management is in a  position to enlarge the scope of.  their work, the lower tunnel having  reached the ledge, giving an exit  for the ore practically on the lake  shore, thus reducing the cost of  transportation and giving a much  greater amount of stoping ground  than has ever before been opened  up in that property.

It Was bad  enough at the beginning.    Worse  camo when the "international army"  began talking of permanent occupation   and   irrevocable demands.  Another degree���we are not sure  that even it is  the  superlative���is  now reached in the proposal of the  "international army" to renew aggressive military operations in the  dead of winter and to enter upon  an elaborate campaign.     The precise object of the campaign is not  yet disclosed.     One report makes  its objective a city in Central China,  beyond the great mountain ranges  ���a trip comparable with that from  New'-York to Cincinnati,  with all  the roads of the intervening country destroyed and with a hostile  population   of   millions swarming  along   the   way.    Another report  says it aims merely to expel all the  Chinese   troops    from  a   province  whose varied, largely mountainous  and chiefly roadless area  is about  twice'as great as that of the whole  of New England. It really does not  greatly matter which  story is  the  true one.      Either enterprise would  be madness.  There is, let us say, no doubt of  the ability of the European armies  to effect such conquest, provided  they are sufficiently reinforced.  The vast armaments of the mila-  tary powers might be transported  to China in irresistible force. Their  * progress iii that empire would  mean a continuation and extension  of what has'already been done on  a large scale. Private property  would be looted, villages aiid cities  would be burned, innocent non-  combatants, including women and  children, would-be tortured and  massacred wholesale. The Chinese  women would kill their infants to  save them from torture, and would  commit suicide to escape violation  at thehandsof & brutal soldiery.  And /wherever the ; "international  arniy" made its conquering way  there would be a wilderness of  reeking ruius and of mutilated  corpses. From participation in such  an orgy the United States may  well pray to be delivered;  And the .'end of it all ? That is  obvious. Every such step makes a  peaceful and equitable solution of  ' the problem more ,nearly= impossible and makes more probable the  forcible conquest; and partitioning  of the empire among the powers.  If the latter is what any of the  European powers intend, in:pursuance of the example already set by  =Russia,=let=the=fact=be=understood=  and let the job; be frankly undertaken, as were the conquests of  Genghis and Timur. The United  States would find no ground for  hesitation in making its reply to  ..the invitation to join in the work.  But if there still be a sincere intent  to seek by diplomatic means a solution of the problem on the basis of;  the continued integrity of the Chinese empire, then the less we hear  ot further conquests the better.  His Heart on the Wrong Side.  In San Francisco is an eight-year-  old boy���little Willie Weiss���whose  heart is not in the right place because it is on the right side. About  two years ago Mrs. Forian Weiss of  928 Natoma street took one of her  flock to the College- of Physicians  and Surgeons to have the wise peo-  'ple there tell what was the matter  with him. Ever since he was a  tiny fellow queer rainbow-colored  spots had: been appearing on his  face and body whenever a wall or a  piece of furniture or a door casing  had tapped him the least little tap.  Sometimes the spots would appear  on his body when there had been  ' no bruise whatever.  The wise men of. tlie college put  [their heads together and came to  the conclusion that concerned ab-  I normally thin walls of the blood  [vessels and a disease called purpura  jhaemorrhagica. But that was not  [all.* In the course of the examination Dr. Healy made a startling  [discovery. It came about in some-  ['what this fashion:  He had been noticing only the  tapots, when, all at once, his eye was  Kttracted by a movement���the  1 steady, hammering movement of  (the' heart   beat.  ^And   the   queer ,  THE CANADIAN  BANK OF COMMERCE  WITH WHICH IS AMALGAMATED  THE BANK  OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.

Further tests discovered the liver  to be on the left side, correspondingly reversed. Percussion told  this tale���percussion, which finds  the liver where, the sound is dull.  The misplacement of the heart is  probably accountable for his disease. Willie Weiss doesn't care  where his heart is nor his liver,  either. He is sturdy of body and  rosy of face now, for the long-  named disease does not trouble him  as much as it did. You will find  him the sunniest of second graders  during the week, a young man who  can'spell and write and read with  the best of them, and if you saw  him busily doing all these things  you would never in the world guess  that secret about his heart. .

Judge Waterman of Chicago has  recently produced something of a  sensation by granting a new trial in  a case before him upon the ground  that tlie verdict which it was  sought to set aside had been based  largely upon the testimony of women. "The evidence of one written document,'* he is reported as  saying, "is oif more weight than the  oral testimony of, a dozen witnesses, particularly when women  are concerned. Though women are  undoubtedly upon a higher moral  plane than-men, they are of a more  imaginative nature, and, though it  is no doubt unintentional, they:  come to believe as true what they  at first only imagine, and maintain  their belief in spite of all evidence  against it." Says the Philadelphia  Inquirer:    ; ,  "These are surprising charges and  no less grave than surprising. If  they are to be Accepted as  true there is no escape from the  conclusion that from at least one  point of view, the point involved in  the opinion of the Chicago judge,  women are not entitled to be regarded as responsible human beings.  The person who is notable to'distinguish between what is fancy and  what is fact is a person who is  hardly safe to allow to be at large.  It cannot be admitted of such a person that he or she is in the full possession of his or her senses. To  mistake, illusions for realities is one  of the most constant and characteristic indications of insanity, so that  the statement of the Chicago judge  is equivalent to the assertion that  women as a body are what the lawyers call non compos mentis. We  do hot believe^ that there willjba  "any^conliderable or respectable  body of assent to that proposition.  "We should be inclined to say  that women make at least as good  witnesses as men, if not better, and  that for several reasons. They are  naturally more observant; they are  apt to have a better memory for  details; and they are more conscientious about stating in court what  they believe to be true. This.  Chicago judge himself admits that  they are upon a higher moral  plane than men, and if that doesn't  mean among other things that they  have a more scrupulous regard for  the truth the Chicago man is loose  in his use of language. Of course  there are women who can't be  trusted upon their oath just as  there are men ; but it may well be  questioned whether upon the whole  women are not the most truthful of  the'two."

Half of  the folks in town went down to see  him after he was butchered, and  the scene was a rather remarkable  one. Without seeing, it is almost  impossible to believe that so much  meat and lard could come from one  hog. But there are other things  raised in South Georgia besides big  hogs.

The work at the land registry  office, which was opened last Monday morning, is now. under good  headway, and for the first weel  there was quite a rush of business  Over 55 deeds have been registered,  and about 10 judgments and 1'6  mortgages have been recorded.

Rev.  Mr. Whittington is a clever speakei  and his sermons were interesting  and convincing. Good missionary  donations and collections were received at both services.  The scheme of doing away with  the train despatcher's office at  Trail and making Nelson the head,  office for all the despatching in tht-  Kootenays has been abandoned by  the C. P. R, officials; The despatching for the Rossland branch will bt  done from Trail until the completion  of the bridge at Robson.., Notwithstanding .that the change will not  be made another operator will be  added to train master Hamilton's  ���p-fai.jy._-.....  ; ^__^___^_.  lying idle for some time. It cost  the original members of the Smelter  band a large sum to recover them  and put them in order, as mouthpieces and other parts were gone.  Two hundred and twenty dollars  were subscribed by the officials and  men at the smelter, and with the  $180 given by the old members  (earnings that were made at different engagements) went a great  way to pay for them, and we certainly have a legal right as well as  a moral one in preference to some  band which has never spent one  cent or helped to organize a band  when there was one heeded.  FROM THE MINING CENTERS  Calumet and Hecla Prospects.  Thomas Mulvey of Slocan City,  one of the owners of the Calumet  and Hecla group on Dayton creek,  opposite the Arlington, and also  part owner of the Ottawa, is in the  city. He $aid that work would be  started on the Calumet and Hecla  by May 1st and would be continued  all summer. Already a large  amount of development work has-  been done ou tlie property. A tunnel has been run on the lead foi'  420 feet and two shafts have been  sunk to a depth of about 50 feel;  each. The face of the tunnel is in.  ore and,very little work, will be*required' to obtain a good quantity  for shipping. Mr. Mulvey also salt',  the work would be resumed on tin >  Ottawa, which has been idle* all  winter, on April 1st. This property is under bond to an English  company.          Mill Machinery.  D. J. McNally who is superintending the construction of the  saw and stamp mill at the May and  Jenuie group on Forty-Nine creel:  was in the city on Saturday. H<>  said that the saw mill was com  pleted and had been in operation  for the past two days and was giving satisfaction. The, capacity of  the mill is about 10,000 feet per  day. Men are busily engaged ir  getting out logs, and lumber for the  stamp, mill, will be cut as quickly a.1-  possible. Two carloads of machin  ery for the , stamp mill passeo  through Nelson a few days ago.  They are now,at Granite Siding and  will be taken to the property at'  once.  SMELTER BAND STILL ALIVE  And Beady for Business.  It has been said that Nelson did  not have a self-sustaining band and  that probably the city council  would be petitioned for aid towards  the organization of a city band.  From a. communication received  from J. A. Sherling, chairman of  the Smelter band, it is learned that  they are still organized and are  ready to accept engagements at any  time. .He writes as follows:       . .  The Smelter band is very much  alive yet and is apt to take engagements any time soon. - It is true  that the military band has played  at the skating rink during the  winter, but for the later part at a  greatly reduced price' in order to  keep the Smelter band from getting  the engagement. And so long as  they prefer to do that the Smelter  band may not offer any opposition,  as the members are not dependent  on music for a living, and if Nelson  can only afford to support one band  the Smelter band will not press the  city for any support. If they should  chance to play for the city during  the summer celebrations they will  require fair pay for their services.  Regarding the popular subscription,  there was not enough money sub ���  scribed to purchase all the instruments and $180 was added by the  members of the band.
