 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  NINTH YEAR  THE TRIBUNE: NELSON B. 0. THURSDAY, MARCH 14, 1001  PRfCE FIVE CENTS  DEATH QUIET  AND PAINLESS  General   Harrison    Passes  Away Unconscious  IN PRESENCE OF RELATIVES  TRIBUTE  TO  MBMOEY  OF  DEAD  STATESMAN.  Neither of the Two Children Was in  Time to Beach the Bedside Before the End.  Indianapolis, March 13.���Gen-  aral Benjamin Harrison died at  4:45 o'clock this afternoon without  regaining consciousness. His death  was quiet and painless, there being  a gradual sinking until the end  came, which was marked by a single  gasp for breath as life departed  from the body of the great statesman. The relatives, with a few exceptions, and several of his old  friends were at the bedside when  he passed away.  The general's condition was so  bad this" morning, after a restless  .night that the attending physicians  understood that the end could riot  be faroff and all bulletins sent out  from the sick room were to this ef-  " feet, so that the family and friends  were prepared for the final blow.  The- failing of the, remarkable  strength shown by the patient became more apparent in the. afternoon and-before.the end there -_was-  an apparent breakdown ou the part  of the sufferer. . The "relatives and  - friends'who had retired from the  sick room to,the library below were |  quickly summoned and reached the  bedside of the general before he  passed away.  News of tlie death spread quickly  throughout the city and several of  the more intimate friends at once  hurried to the Harrison' residence.  Tlie word was flashed from the bulletins- of all the newspapers and  thus communicated to the people  on their way home in the evening.  The announcement produced the  greatest-sorrow. Within a few minutes the flags on all public iSuild-  iugs and most of tlie down town  business blocks were hoisted at half  mast.and other outward manifestations of mourning were made.  _JSone_of generaLHarrisonls^hildren^  was present at his death. Neither  colonel Russell Harrison nor Mrs.  MeKee reached the city, although  both were hurrying on their way  to the bedside of their dying parent  as fast as steani could carry them.  Elizabeth, general Harrison's  little daughter, had been taken  from the sick room by her nurse  before the end came. The group,  ,at. the bedside included Mrs. Harrison,.. William II. Miller, Samuel  Miller,;, his son, the llov. M. L.  Haines, pastor-of the First Presbyterian church, which general Harrison had attended for so many years,  secretary Tibbet, Drs. Jameson and  Dorsey, colonel Daniel M. Ransdell,  eergeant-at-arms of the United  States senate and a clese personal  friend of the dead ex-president,  Clifford Arrick and the two nurses  who have been in constant attends  ance. ��� General Harrison's two  sisters and an aunt were also  present. Mrs. Harrison knelt at  the right hand side of the bed, her  husband's right hand clasped in  hers, while Dr. Jameson held the  left hand of the dying man, counting the feeble pulse, beats. In a  few minutes after the friends had  been summoned to the room the  end came, Dr. Jameson announcing  the sad fact. The great silence that  fell'on the sorrowing watchers by  the bedside was broken by the  voice of Dr. Haines, raised in  prayful ' .supplication for; consolation for the bereaved wife and  family. .  General Harrison had. been unconscious for hours before his  death, the _ exact time when he  passed into a comatose state being  difficult to determine. He spoke to  no one today, failing to recognize  even his wife.   The greater part of  Tuesday, also, he was in a semicomatose condition, although he  was at times able to recognize those  at his bedside. At that time he  recognized and spoke to Mrs. Newcomer, his aunt, and also to Mr.  Miller, the words, however, being  very indistinct. "Doctor" and "my  lung" were the only words understood. Almost the last words he  uttered were addressed to his wife,  of whom he inquired shortly before  lie became unconscious if the doctors were present.  * . One of the most pathetic incidents  of the whole illness of tho general  occurred Tuesday before he became  unconscious. Tlie general's little  daughter, Elizabeth, was brought  into the sick room for a few  moments tp see her father and  offered him a small apple pie which  she %@^elf had made. ��� General  Kari-i^^^S^g^s recognition of  the &��$&imtt$m*Z but. .the  effort to spetM^g^&uch and  he could do nothing morlrto express  his appreciation. Today all efforts  to arouse the slowly dying man to  consciousness were of no avail and  he died without a word of recognition to those who surrounded his  bedside.  -Tributes to His Memory.  Washington, March 13. ��� The  late president Harrison was personally known to every member of  the cabinet, and all its members in  the city today spoke in praise of  his magnificent intellectuality and  fugged force of character. Naturally the proclamation the president  will issue setting out the adminis-.  tration's estimate of general Harrison's character in a large measure  will include the personal views of a  majority of the cabinet and consequently they did not, in most cases,  care to enter into extended analysis  of the good qualities of deceased.  Secretary Gage and Griggs are out  of the city. "  ,  Secretary Hay said: "The death  of Mr. Harrison" is a national loss.  Independent of the great official  position he had held, he was a man  of extraordinary: capacity and activity. He was.a. true statesman,'  ' lawyeir and-orator, arid he" has' left  few men his equal behind him in  character as well as ability. He  was a man of very unusual force  and value."  Indianapolis, Marcli 13.���The  funeral of ex-president Harrison  will take place next Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The services will  he held in the first .Presbyterian  church of which Mr. Harrison was a  member for lif by years. Rev. Dr.  M. L. Haines, pastor of the church,  will have charge of the "service.  London, March 14.���All the. morning papers publish long memoirs  of the late general Benjamin Harrison and editorials'dealing with his  career.  TO STORM THE GOVERNMENT  IN THE INTEREST OP THE SILVER-  LEAD INDUSTRY.  A Monster Delegation of Representative  Citizens to Visit Ottawa���The  .Plans Suggested.  Crooked Bank Official.  Detroit, March 13.���A. special to  the News from St. Joseph, Miehi-  lyahy saysTtHoiirJbsepli_\V'rSliel3oir  of Washington has been appointed  receiver of the suspended First  National Bank at Niles, this county.  Today he filed papers with the  county clerk attaching all of the  property of the missing cashier,  Charles .Tohnson. Twenty thousand  dollars of forged paper against Lee  Wilkinson, a prominent resident of  the eity, has been found. It is said  that the total amount of forged paper found in the institution amounts  to $40,000. For several years the  First National had been known as a  one man bank, Johnson, who had  the implicit confidence of the.  directors, transacting all the business. Lee Wilkinson, against whom  $20,000 of forged paper was found,  is junior member of the abstract  firm of Dix & Wilkinson, which did  a large .business with .the embarrassed bank. Cashier Johnson is  still missing.  Terms to Be Granted.  London, March 147���The Daily  News says: "In addition to the  modifications announced by the  Daily News yesterday in the unconditional surrender policy, we  understand tliat the government  of the new colonies shall culminate  in a complete grant of free institutions." -  Dr. Leyds arrived at Utrecht  yesterday aud had a long conference with Mr. Kruger. A dispatch  to the Daily Mail yesterday from  Utrecht corroborates the News'  statement concerning the conditions  offered to the Boers. It is generally expected as a result of yesterday's cabinet council that the government will make announcement  today as to the result of the negotiations at Pretoria.  Realizing that there is fear of the  Dominion government' refusing to  grant   the     application     of     the  Gooderham,   Blackstock Syndicate  for a bonus on  pig lead, in return  for which they will erect a refinery  in Canada to treat the output of  Canadian smelters, the Kaslo board  of trade has  taken an important  step to ward off this danger.   At a  meeting of the council of the board  on Tuesday night it was decided to  ondeavor to get all the city councils  arid boards of trade Jn southern  British Columbia to send delegates  to Ottawa to lay fully' before  the  Dominion parliament - the needs of  thp   country.    Such   a delegation,  composed of the leading men of the  Kootenays, inen.promineut in every  walk of life, the board thinks, will  be received with great attention at  Uie capital -and listened   to with  better success than would attend a  email    deputation   from   any   one  point.  . The "discussion at the* meeting at  Kaslo brought out many points that  ' will suggest themselves to all  who  consider the. idea,   The chief question to be considered is expense.but  ,it was generally admitted that the  condition of the mining industry at  present makes it absolutely necessary that something be done now  whatever the cost. ��� "If boards  of  trade  are   not   financially   strong  enough to pay .their delegates' expenses the delegates themselves will,  perhaps, in" view of the great good  that might.be expected.from such.a.  representative delegation,  be  willing to put their hands in their own  pockets and put up   the difference  between their   allowance and expenses. . Mines all over the country  are closing down and it is generally  admitted that the operatiou  of a  refinery which   in  its  turn would  encourage the erection of smelters  and make mining more profitable  would dissipate the hard times aud  give the industry an impetus that  would usher in an era of great prosperity for Southern British Columbia.  The idea of the Kaslo board is to  get, ii* possible, two hundred of the  leading business men of the conn-  try, and, if not that many, as near  to it as possible, to leave by special  train for Ottawa about the end of  the month. The cars would bo  placarded,   showing   what    it    all  Another Herreshoff.  London, March 13.���The St.  James Gazette this afternoon  announced that Herre-ahoff, junior,  has been commissioned by a shipbuilder of Glasgow to design a  sixty-five foot racing yacht, to be  built on the Clyde.; The Herreshoff, junior, referred to is possibly  a son of C. E. Herreshoff. He is  studying engineering at Glasgow  university and is said to have a  natural'talent for designing. He  lias associated himself with professor J; Harvard Piles, who occupies  the chair of-.naval science in Glasgow imiversity, iu the hitter's large  business, of designing vessels, to  which will be added yacht building.  Young Mr. Herreshoff will take up  a permanent residence" in Glasgow  as the superintendent of the last  mentioned branch of the, business.  ���   Assess Legation Property."  Pekin, March 13.���The foreign  ministers today sent to the Chinese  plenipotentiaries a list of the towns  ind cities in China where examinations for . the civil service will  aot be permitted for a period of  Sve years. They also requested  ohese Chinese authorities to appoint a commission, to act with a  ���oian appointed by the ministers to  assess the value of the private property taken for" legation purposes.

It would be an  excursion unique in the annals of  Canada arid be the greatest advertisement that the country ever got.  On the way matters affecting the  interests of the country would be  fully discussed, and when the party  arrived at Ottawa it would be properly organized and have its plan  of campaign mapped out.    -  The pig lead bonus and every  other need of the country would be  voiced iu a manner that would be  heard all over the Dominion and it  would force the government to give  immediate, attention to the  Kootenays'. It would probably  bring better results than could bo  gained in any other way. Even  one Pullman full would be a very  large delegation, but the larger it is  the more weight it would carry, so  the Kaslo board hopes to reach -the  two hundred mark. The board is  in telegraphic communication with  president Shaughnessy of.the C.P.R.  regarding transportation, and as  that company is so largely interested in the progress of this country, it is expected that a very  favorable rate will be secured. If  the party was large enough the  C. P. R. would provide a special'  train.  The delegates would not go to  Ottawa to ask favors but merely to  claim its rights.  G. O. Buchanan of Kaslo will be  in Nelson, today to interview the  city council aud board of trade.  He visited Sandon yesterday. W.  W. Beaton, who originated the  idea, passed through Nelson last  evening en route to Rossland, and  he will also visit the Boundary  country aud East Kootenay.  Corsicana, Texas, March 13.���  John Henderson,, colored, who bru-  1 ally assaulted and murdered' Mrs.  Younger, a farmer's wife, living just outside this city several  days ago, was burried^toVdeath'-in  1 he court house square here today.  A written confession of the crime  nttested. by justice Roberts was  secured from the prisoner. Business was suspended and. many witnessed the burning. Henderson-  was captured yesterday after a long  rhase with bloodhounds. The oflfi-  < ers took him to Hillsboro and were  impelled through fear of the mob  io start for Fort Worth; When  ihe train reached Itaska, a party of  Younger's friends overpowered the  juards and hustled Henderson from  the train. He was conveyed across  the prairie a distance of 45  railes to Corsicana where he was  placed in jail to prevent the infuriated citizens from tearing him to  pieces.    A_coiniuittee_was_appointT  ed to see him and pass on his guilt  or innocence. Finally he made a  written confession that he had murdered an unknown white - woman  three miles north of Corsieana on  March 6th.  There was no one present, he  said, but himself and the woman's  two little children. He said he did  not know why he had .done it.  When it became known that Hen-  o erson had confessed-;people assembled around the. jail.: It was decided to burn the prisoner at the  stake at 2 p. m., but news was received that troops had started from  Dallas and the execution was hurried. A railroad rail was driven  into the ground at the corner of the  court house square. Boxes and dry  timber were piled around it and  saturated with oil. Just before  toon'about forty men rushed from  the jail across the square to the  place where the rail had been  placed. In their midst was Hender-  sod, handcuffed. Tlie men formed  a. circle, holding to a chain which  surrounded the prisoner to prevent  the crowd from tearing him away.  The negro was fastened to the rail  with wire and chains. Cans of oil  were emptied over his clothing and  dozens of lighted matches touched  the inflammable material. The fire  alarms were rung. Just as the pile  was fired Younger, husband of the  murdered woman, jumped at Henderson and slashed him across" the  face with a knife. Henderson gave  no indication of pain or suffering.  He rolled his eyes to get a glimpse  of the angry faces which surrounded  him and there was a slight movement of the hands. In ten minutes  Henderson was dead. He made no  outcry other than an occasional  groan.  Victoria, March 13.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The railway committee today reported the imperial  Pacific bill to the house. This, if  built, commences at Victoria, thence  north to Seymour Narrows, thence  crossing and going north on mainland.  - \  Prentice, explaining his school  bill for second reading, said tliat it  was estimated Nelson would have  received under the old system $6075,  under the new $6225; Rossland,  158956 against $8430; Kaslo, $2490  igainst $2500; Sandon, $1430  Against $1080.  The hotels are full to overflowing  with railway "lobbyists.  Definitely Settled.  Victoria, March 13.���Wheu the  bouse met this afternoon, premier  Dunsmuir read the following telegram from colonel Prior: "Definitely settled that the duke and  duchess of York will yisit Victoria  md other Coast cities in October."  Loud applause, followed the read-  ���ng of the message.  Captain Sntherland of the bark  Senator, whicli arrived in Royal  Roads from Wei Hai Wei this  morning, after a voyage lasting 33  days, says that between that port,'  .'Shanghai- and Hong Kong, Great  }3ritaint will have placed" on, the  Asiatic coast 1,000,000 tons of coal.

Vancouver, March 13.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���A shocking 'accident occurred this" morning at  Revelstoke, shortly after .the departure of the cast-bound train.

John La Pointe, contractor of  this city, is in receipt of a letter  from Messrs. Viau & Le Moine of  Ottawa, who have the contract for  the construction of the new post-  office.

They- also wished to know the extent of excavating that would have  to'be done and where the material,  stone, brick and lumber could bo  obtained. They also asked if the  weather conditions were such as to  allow work to commence immediately. Mr. La Pointe has replied  arid he thinks on the arrival of his  letter there the contractors will  come to Nelson to start work at  oncei=r^ ��� '*~���  A New Church.  There is a movement ou foot in  connection with the Episcopal denomination to form another parish  in this city and iu it erect a new  church. A petition asking that  this be dona, and to which a large  number of names have already been  attached, is being prepared and  will be forwarded to bishop Dart of  New Westminster, who is the acting bishop for Kootenay diocese.  It is quite probable that the new  parish will include the Hume  addition and the church will be  built in the vicinity of Bogustown.  The promoters are quite enthusiastic over the project and are determined to carry out the new scheme.  There aro in Nelson about 500  English church going people, and  this is they think quite sufficient to  warrant two good congregations.  License Commissioners Meet.

Against this   there  ! are the   published reports of the  company's experts that the mining  , of this coal will not exceed, $1* per  ' ton, so that upon every ton of coal,  sold even under the $2  restriction,  the company will have a  profit of  v. one hundred per cent.    From the  same source comes the assurance  that   the   company's   output   will  shortly reach 10,000 tons per day,  but assuming that it reaches but  one-third of these proportions the  company's profit will be something  over $1,000,000 per annum,  which  is equal to five per cent upon the  valuation of $20,000,000 placed upon  the coal areas.  sire to make a deal with the Canadian Pacific railway's greatest rival,  when they have a chance to enrich  themselves by vesting the control  of the East Kootenay coal fields in  an alien railway trust. But one  thing is lacking to complete this  deal, and this is direct railway connection between the coal fields and  the alien, railway company's system. To secure this the Toronto  m en'make a fight on behalf of the  people against C. P. R. oppression,  and throw out as a life preserver a  charter for a railway from their  coal fields to the international  boundary. Should the Toronto men  succeed the people of British Columbia who are looking for redress  from excessive C. P. R. rates will be  told that their remedy lies in cutting off 50 per cent of the Canadian  Pacific company's business, which,  whatever other effects it may have,  will be accomplished by the building of the Hill line to the coal fields.  Goon results are sure to follow  the discussion of ,the East Kootenay coal question, and the probable elfect upon the fuel supply   of  of the building of- James J.  Hill's  projected   railway   from   the coal  fields to the international boundary.  ���JAVhen   the   suggestion   was    first  mooted that the   building   of the  road would occasion a fuel scarcity,  whieh might jeopardize the smelting industry of the province, the officers of the coal company and their  henchmen    laughed the    idea    to  scorn.   They   produced   geological  reports   suggestive of millions   of  tons of coal; and cinched their argu:  ment with the ready assurance that  the federal   government   holds  in  trust for the protection of the public a coal���reserve of 50,000 acres.  Aside from the trifling delay  of a  year or two which might be necessary to secure the. opening up of  such coal reserve,   this assurance  was manifestly welcome. But is there  any such government reserve in existence?.   A writer in The Canadian  Mining Review, who betrays a very  intimate   knowledge ,of   the   coal  fields; says definitely that there is  not.    Despite the great fuss which  was made over the wringing of this  concession from the- Crow's   Nest  Pass Coal Company and the   Canadian Pacific Railway Company, the  government;has seemingly done nothing to gather the fruits of its victory.   But meanwhile the  Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Company has   not  been idle. It has got in on the ground  floor,  and covered the coal ��� areas  on all the creeks, so that it would  take a'clever man to find an opening where practical access could be  had to any other coal. 'If   what  this writer says is true, of what  value   is   the loudly heralded  reserve?   The suggestion that the existence of this-reserve should be regarded  by the people   of   British  These figures go to show that the  Toronto men who are now so solicitous for the public welfare, and  who are now so anxious to make  the common people's fight against  the oppressions of a great railway  company, earned something very  substantial themselves by reason  of their business understanding and  arrangement with the same company. They have i now arrived at'  the stage, however, when they de-  ColiTrabia   as   their- security   from  any   threatened   fuel   famine   has  been vised extensively by the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Company in defence  of their application for   the   Hill  charter.    It therefore follows that  the first duty of the provincial and  Dominion       parliaments,      before  granting   the   Hill   charter, is   to  ascertain   what   steps   have   been  taken  to survey this  government  reserve of coal  lands;   and what  chance there now remains for the  federal government  to secure   its  reserve of 50,000 acres of coal lands  " of equal value, as coal lauds, with  " the residue of   the coal   lands."  The  granting of the Hill charter  will be a concession to none but the  stockholders   in   the   Crow's   Nest  Pass   Coal    Company    and    their  United States allies, and for this  reason it is quite competent for the  province which gave the coal lands  in the first place, aud for the federal government that settled  the  terms with their present owners,  to insist upon compliance with present   obligations , before   granting  any further concessions.  The necessary delay might inconvenience the  coal company, but against this temporary   inconvenience   may   confidently be put the future welfare of  an industry much greater than the  coal company   individually   represents.    And it may also be remembered  that the present profits of  the coal company, are sufficient to J  keep the company out of the hands  of a receiver until a royal commission could inquire into the manner  in which it has met its present obligations, as well as the effect the  granting of the- fresh concessions  sought would have upon the mining  districts of British Columbia.  David B. Boole's article, on "The  Coming Industrial Empire of Puget  Sound," which formed the leading  article in a recent number of Engineering Magazine of London and  New York, has received some very  flattering notices in the press of the  United States. Mr. Bogle draws a  very happy picture of the future of  tho Pacific Northwest, when,  through developing to their utmost  their natural resources, its peoplo  have built up a commercial and industrial empire which shall confidently defy the competition of the  world, and which shall draw to Puget Sound the greatest population  in America.  Chapleau Settlement in Sight.  The Chapleau mining company  has made another proposition to its  creditors for a stay of proceedings  and the prospect is how good for a  speedy settlement. This last proposition of the company calls for the  payment of $10,000 by Wednesday  next, and a full settlement of all  claims within sixty days. Nelson  merchants are interested iu the  Chapleau company to the extent of  several thousond dollars and are  therefore very much gratified at  the turn things have taken.  Of sir Hiram Maxim the people  of Lewiston, Maine, say that he  had a rooted dislike for school. He  was therefore early apprenticed to  Daniel Flynt, a painter, and worked  in the shop much of the time. Even  then he was "tinkering" ��� as the  country people termed it.  An eastern paper detailed a corps  of reporters to put this question to  every United States ' senator in  Washington: "What would you- do  with $75,000,000?" - The young man  who approached senator Mason received this reply: "I would build ���>  asylums for fool editors.". ..,:'���. -,  KOOTENAY  COFFEE CO.

You give your  mayors a personal power that no  Englishman is trusted with./ Sometimes it happens' accidentally that  the mayor is a good man and a big  man. He,gives the paid jobs to the  ward politicians, who run the voting machine for liim; but he throws  the real public work on public-  spirited men who can afford to do  it for nothing, by creating honorary  posts for them. Then he goes  ahead and astonishes Englishmen  by doing things iii a year that  would take a London borough council half a century!  Those Napoleonic mayors are the  triumphs of your civic life; but they  don't belong to the system. They  are purple patches of autocracy, inspired by socialism, on a huge tarpaulin of democracy demoralized  by individualism. There are not  enough of them to save you. J" You  must begin the work of reformation by abolishing the American  constitution, that foolish, obsolete  and obstructive document which  destroys life, persecutes liberty aiid  makes the pursuit of happiness a  chase after other people's dollars/  You can take your choice of powers  to carry on the reformation. You  might request the St. Pancras  Borough Council, of which I am a  member, to form a Uuited States  government board by taking ten  members of its own body and co-operating five members of the Fabian  Society. Or, if you prefer, something republican, try Switzerland.  The Zurich Town Council would do  it, for a consideration. After all,  Europe takes an interest in the  United States and is- anxious to  help you.  By all means, govern yourselves  ���if'you can. So far the facts go  to show that you can't. However,  perhaps you have not really tried.  Some of you think that the government that is best is the one that  governs least. Well, you've got it;  -there's no denying that. I don'fc.  say that it has not its points;.it  suits some people. Mr. Rockefeller  does not complain of it. Mr. Croker  keeps up his spirits under it.

Herewith  is given au illustration of 'The!  Tremont, one of the earliest hotels  now in business. This hotel had its  beginning in a small frame building,  comprising some fourteen rooms,  which was built upon  the  present  site by John J. Malone aud James  Clarke in the spriug of 1891. The  new house was running bub a few  weeks when the Clarke interest  was acquired by A. Tregillus,' since  which time the. business has been  conducted by the firm of Malone <fc  Tregillus. Additions were made to  the hotel building from time to  time until iu 1S99 the present handsome brick premises were erected,  These give The Tremont accommodations for fif ty guests; and thei  popularity of the house is such that  its accommodation is taxed to the  utmost.

In the niixup Good-  erow's face was badly pounded.  "3?he C. P. R. officials who have so  long occupied the frame building  on west Baker stieet were busy  yesterday in moving to their new  apartments on the second floor of  the union depot. They expect to  get down to business again todajv  -The work on the improvements  to the Phair hotel were started yesterday when the excavators commenced work. The contract has  been let to L. W.

They report that  the mine is looking well and regular shipments are being made.  Ib is expected that Mr. justice  Irving of Vancouver, before whom  the case pf Marino vs. Alexander et  al., which was tried in Nelson two  weeks ago, and Who reserved judgment, will give his decision shortly.  He has written to registrar Simpkins for further manuscript of the  evidence, and it was forwarded to  him two days ago.  With the abatement of tho heavy  rush of freight over the C. P.'R.  lines, tho barges are once more  brought to Nelson and unloaded at  the local wharf instead of at Procter. The Balfour extension has not  wholly been abandoned, as a few  cars are being brought over it daily.  Tn case of another rush it will again  be transferred at Procter.  A. H. Gracey, the managing director of the Imperial Development  Syndicate, left last evening.for the  Imperial, Eva and Challa groups in.  the Lardeau district. Mr. Gracey  expects to be away about two  weeks, during which time he will  lay out the plan of the work that  is to be carried out during the next  two months.  Yesterday Fred Irvine received a  letter from William Irvine, who  has been in the east for some time,  stating that the latter would be in  Toronto today or tomorrow and  that he would leave for the west  in about a week. Mr. Irvine has  purchased a large stock of spriug  arid summer goods, a quantity of  which have already arrived. Mr.  Irvine also stated in his letter that  many large orders from the west  wero being filled by eastern firms.  The regular monthly meeting of  the board of trade will be held at S  o'clock this evening at the board  rooms. The most important  question under' consideration will  be the present lead, difficulty. A  resolution has already been drafted  , by a special committee, recommending that a .delegation be sent to  interview the government concerning the erection ot a refinery.  With the approach of spring and  fine weather the quoit enthusiasts  of the city are talking of reorganization. It is expected that a meeting will be held shortly to consider  the matter. Some of the club members have.suggested that, tlie >club  purchase a. lob ifnd erect a frame  building,, so tliat games may be  conducted no matter what condition the weather may be in.  W. R. Brigstocke, a mining engineer of this city, has prepared for  T. G. Procter a long and extensive  report on the Alice mine near Creston, which will be "presented to the  directors of the York and Lancaster"  Company, Manchester, England,  which controls the property^ Mr.  Brigstocke left yesterday morning  for the Ymir mine, where he will  have charge of the cyanide, plant.  Grand chancellor Brown and A.  M. Graves, who is also an .officer of  the grand lodge of British Columbia of the Knights of Pythias, both  of Kamloops, were the guests of the  members of the local lodge at the  meeting held at Fraternity hall  last evening.

In speaking of the  proposed transfer of tho Nelson  schools Mr. Johnstone said it was  almost certain that the change  would be followed by an immediate  increase in the salaries of the  teachers employed, and upon the  old basis of a government, grant of  $10 per capita, the trustees estimated that the immediate cost for  maintenance would impose a burden  of some $4000 upon the corporation  under the head of education.  Glad to Get Back,  A laborer by the name of Hill,  or who is better known among the  police aud at the provincial jail as  "The Tramp," has .again got himself into trouble and will bo locked  up and carefully cared for until tlie  warm months of summer. Yesterday, while slightly under the influence of liquor ho became boisterous  on Baker street near the Bank of  Commerce. When the police went  to arrest him he put up a good  fight, as he thought if he went  along quietly his sentence would  not extend to the warm weather.  The police hailed the first -wagon  that passed,the prisoner was thrown  in and hurried away to the city  lockup. The prisoner says ho has  been in nearly every jail in the  Kootenays and he was quite put  out when he was set free from the  provincial jail here a few days ago.  �� PERSONAL.  anee were entertained at an infoi  mal banquet.   Messrs.  Brown and  Graves leave for home this morning.  From word that has been received  through press, dispatches it is  expected that Canada will be called  upon to raise another contingent  for servics in South Africa. Lieut.  Beer, who was the recruiting officer  for tlie last contingent, has already  received six applications from  young men of this city. As a large  number have already beeu accepted  from Nelson it is probable tliat the  majority of the men taken under  this call will be from the Boundary.  It is said tliat the negotiations  bebwepn the English company and  the Venus Gold Mining Company  for the Venus property on Morning  mountain have fallen through.  The engineer who was to-'-'report  ou the property came as far as  Spokane but'had to return owing  to the extreme illness of his wife.  Other parties are after the property  and there is little doubt that a deal  will be made in the near future.  No work is being done on the  property at present.  Trustee Wants a Free Hand.  George Johnstone, 'o��;th'e present  Nelson school board, does not take  kindly to the suggestion which has  been made, that when the city  takes over tlie management of the  public schools the proposed expenditures of the school trustees be subject, to the revision of the city  council. Trustee Johnstone holds  that adequate educational facilities  are of first importance to the well-  being of a city, and that for this  reason the school trustees should  not be required to trim down their  estimates in   order   that outlying-  W.
