DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  '������������' Ir'-iW^w-ivv"  fin  OTNTH YEAR  THE TRIBUNE: KELSON B. C. THURSDAY, MARCH 21, 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  A  COLONIZATION   SCHEME  EXPLORING THE RICH VALLEYS  OF EAST KOOTENAY.  Two  Hundred   Families Prepared to  Settle if Suitable Lands Are  Available.  A.  and  As  up  J. Alcock, J. C.  Squarebriggs  A. C. Weldon passed  through  Nelson last night en route for the  East Kootenay country.   They are  the advance agents of a colonization  society recently organized  at Van  couver and their mission is to spy  out lauds suitable for farming or  grazing.    Considerable information  has already been acquired by these  gentlemen as to the lands available  for settlement and the conditions  upon  which they can be secured.  The C. P. R.   are   affording   every  facility for investigation, giving the  party free transportation, letters of  introduction, etc.    Outfitting was  done at Vancouver, a plentiful supply   for   a   six ^veeka' trip  being  brought along.  The colonization scheme was  started at "the Terminal City several months ago, among its promoters being several practical"  farmers and ranchers, who came  west iu the hope of acquiring land.  Not finding.conditions as they expected, they were driven into the  cities of the Coast, where t~ey engaged in various branches of .business-with'more or less success,  individuals, they could take  land, but so far distant from markets that they could-not hope for  success. Then the scheme of combination or colonization was mooted  and found suchy favor that the  party above named started on their  mission as" the representatives of  some 200 families.     They   intend  :'to go. as. far as Windermere where  a friend of Mr. Squarebriggs has  for years past . run a ranch,  and with great success.- The  favorable reports received from  this old rancher, whose name is  McKay, justifies the belief that cattle raising and general farming can  be carried on with great profit in  that section of the country. If his  statements are verified from twenty  to thirty families will at once go  into tho country as the nucleus of a  general settlement.  The prospector?, however, will  net confine their attentions to the  Windermere district. They have, a  general roving commission, and intend pushing south towards the international boundary. Then they  will take in Pincher creek, Fort MeLeod and Calgary, taking train  from the latter place on the homeward trip to "Vancouver. They are  very hopeful of finding, if not   "a  -land=flowing-with=milk=and=honey"'=  at least such a country as will enable them to recommend the carry-  - ing out of the colonization scheme.  The three gentlemen are well qualified to perform the��duties entrusted to them. They are well outfitted and prepared tor almost any  emergency that may arise. At Fort  Steele they will secure horses to  pack their supplies aud themselves  through the land of promise. The  trip, it is expected, will take about  a month or six weeks.  trea  Reinforcements at Tien Tsin.  Pekin, March 20.���The British reinforcements, consisting of ninety  marines, which arrived at Tien  Tsin last uight from the Taku forts  to replace the India guards on the  disputed lands, are explained as due  to a fear lest any incident arising  out of the Russo-British land question should cause the French troops,  whose conduct has given much  trouble, to precipitate a collision.  The British commander desires to  have enough troops in Tien Tsin to  preserve order in the streets. General Bailloud left here this morning  to inquire into the conduct of  French troop3 at Tien Tsin. At today's conference of the foreign,  "ministers general matters were discussed and. no conclusions were  arrived at.  Proposed Indemnities.  -Washington, March 20.���It is  stated that the sum total of the  indemnities claimed by all nations  cannot be calculated at this moment  because of the. lack of agreement  among the powers on the basis of a  settlement, butassuming the powers  ��ve willing to accept the scheme of  adjustment proposed by the United  States, allowing a certain amount  for each missionary killed or. injured, and another allowance for  property destroyed, the sum total  of the claims would be considerably  less than $250,000,000. It is not  doubted that under an economical  administration, with order completely restored and with free  access to the interior of China, the  Chinese revenues would be able  to meet" this charge against them  within a reasonable time.  appears almost hopeless now to expect the other powers to accept the  same basis of compensation as  would satisfy the United States  government. Not only is there a  vast difference in the scale of demands based on military expendi-  is a very radi-  ^mion as to the  Wfe Christians who  have suffered in person and ��� property by the Boxers, and it is believed that if this element is to be  treated with the liberality proposed by some, of the European  nations the indemnity claimed will  be nearly $500,000,000 in the aggregate, an amount, it is declared,  quite impossible for China to meet.  Railroad Blockade.   -  Grand Rapids, Michigan, March  20.���All trains on the Grand Rapids  and Indiana, Pere Marquette and  Michigan Central railway, north of  Cadi}lac to the straits of Mackinaw  are again at a complete standstill  as a .result of tbe sleet storm and  heavy wind which prevailed yesterday and last night. Communication also was stopped, the weight  of ice Avhich formed on the telegraph wires breaking them in a  number of places. The officials say  the tie up is the worst of the winter.  Carnegie Reaches London.  Southampton, March 21.���The  St. Louis, with Mr. aud Mrs. Andrew  Carnegie aboard, docked at 2 o'clock  this morning. Only a few passengers disembarked. Mr. and Mrs.  Carnegie had given .strict, orders  that they should not be awakened  until G. o'clock." The liner had. a  ���miserable trip, but--'no serious  weather. , Mr. Carnegie .was on  deck' daily and is in excellent  health.        A London Exposition.  London, March 21.���The Daily  Mail says this morning: "It is reported in high circles that king Ed-  Edward contemplates, a big exhibition in London on the lines of the  Paris exposition, the idea being to  eneloso the Thames from Westminster bridge to Albert bridge, including the whole of Battersea Park."  French Strikers.     ,  Marseilles, March 20.���A conflict today owing to a striker's endeavor to break through the cordon of troops protecting the men  who are working on the. docks resulted in three grendarmes and a  soldier being killed with stones.

Johannesburg, March 20.���One  mining company has restarted  crushing ore and four others are  preparing to begin;  Sir Alfred Milner, governor of  the Transvaal and Orange. River  Colony, expects to stay here three  months.        '  Aggressive Russia.  London, March 21.���"Russia's  proceedings inKorea," says the Kobe  correspondent of the Daily Mail,  "are now openly aggressive, and it  is believed that she is*about to make  further demands in connection with  Ma San Pho."  Valuable Privileges.  ,. Nkw York, March 20.���A seat  on the New York Stock Exchange  waa sold today for $52,000. This is  $500 more than the previous highest  price paid.  A.  Wilkie Mackenzie, who   left  Nelson twelve months ago to join  the Strathcona Horse for service in  South Africa, returned yesterday  "and   is' receiving   the congratulations of his friends., He has seen  some very active service with the  corps, but was fortunate enough to  escape   the   Boer    bullets >  which  showered around him from many a  kopje.   Mac shared the honor with  the other boys of being presented  with the South African medal by  king Edward VII and being one of  those who carried' the Strathcona  colors across";the Atlantic���cc-Iors  presented by the king.   Hi's detachment served principally with Buller, and were through some of the  hottest   work"   of    tlie   campaign.  He     gives     a ' very    interesting  account   of- many   of   his    comrades   in     arms    recruited     here  and in Rossland.   H. M. Daly, sou  of hon. T. Mayne Daly, stayed off  at Montreal, but' will   return   to  Rossland in a few- days.   Sergeant-  major Ronth is visiting in Winnipeg.   P. C. Wraggo   is spending a  few days in Toronto before coming  west again.   John Ryan broke   his  journey at Winnipeg.   T. McAllister is on his way from Ottawa with  P. E. Simpson.   Lieutenant Leckie  is visiting his   father in   Sudbury.  P. Switzer and R. C. McDonnell remained behind and Bob Wineralls  is thinking.of-going back to Africa..  He is in London and expects to get  a   commission. ' Butler,   Williams,  and Bob Palmer are also   in   England.   Young* Parksan.d', Jim. Abbot were in'th'e hospital  when the  transport left the African   shores  but were reported'to be improving.  Lockhart had left the service and  joined the engineers in Africa.   He  is doing well on railroad construction.     Pearson also remained behind.  The returned soldier gives a  graphic account of the circumstances attending the death of  sergeant Logan in tlie Crockadile  valley. Poor Logan sold his life  dearly, firing some fatal shots from,  his revolver as he lay mortally  wounded on the ground. Most of  the boys suffered from the enteric  fever, which carried off not a few,  including Davies, who died at  Pretoria.  Before leaving Africa the Strathconas were addressed by lord  Kitchener, who said: "I don't  =want=to,flatter-y ou ;-Lk no w^y ou=had=  hard work to do, but if you only  knew of the letters I received from  different generals in this country  asking me to send on the Strathconas, you would not blame me."  Mr. MacKenzie does not think  much of South Africa as a field for  the working man, but for skilled  mechanics and capital he believes  it affords au exceptionally good  opening. All the heavy work is  done by the blackman. The Baden-  Powell police will not have a snap;  plenty of hard, dangerous' work  awaits them, as they will have to  do with a cunning and treacherous  people.  Mr. Mackenzie is staying at the  Queen's, where his friends may see  him.  '  Duel With Knives.  San Bernardino, California,  March 20.���A. P. Elliott, manager  of the Peacock Copper Mining company, and James Neville, a well  known mining man, became involved in a quarrel at Dagetc, a  small town 100 miles north of here,  and fought a duel with pocket'  knives for 15 minutes, during which  time blood was spilled on almost  every street corner of the town, as  the contestants ran while they  fought. The entire population witnessed the tragedy, and not until  they saw Neville fall mortally  wounded did anyone interfere. Elliott was also wounded but not  seriously. ��He is in jail.  Independent Republics.  New York, March 20.���The implication drawn from the review of  .the world's commerce for 1900 that  the United States has officially  recognized the annexation of the  Transvaal and.: the ��� Orange Free  State by describing them as British  colonies is contradicted by the state  department register for 1901, says  a special from Washington to the  Times. Tho register describes the  Transvaal and the Orange Free  State as "indeppndent republics."  The state department register conveys the official position of the government on the question. It is a  publication of the state department  and prepared under the supervision  of the chiefs of the department.  The review of: the world's commerce is prepared in one of the  bureaus of the department. Of  course '; neither! ^publication could  officially determine the attitude of  the government,; lint if either has  any weight the balance is in favor  of the register. '.y7  Brutal* Hazing.  Chicago, March 20.���A special to  the Chronicle froin Milwaukee says:  W. -W. Gillespie,j a student of the  Milwaukee Medical college, had his  skull partly fractured, his nose'  broken and several gashes cut in  his face as the result of hazing by a  fellow student. . He is under a doctor's care and will recover, but he  will ��� be. disfigured. Gillespie is a  school teacher >with an excellent'  record and is taking a medical  course in . connection with �� his  regular work.. He" was too busy to  join in the student's pranks and incurred the ill will of some of them.  When a lighted cigar was thrown  in his face he resented it with a  blow and was attacked from behind and knocked down. Then his  face was battered. He thinks' he  knows his assailant and as soon as  he recovers will take steps to have  him punished.  WON'T ACCEPT ARBITRATION  PREMIER DUNSMUIR TALKS  STATES HIS POSITION ON RAILROAD QUESTIONS.  Crow's Nest  Southern   Railway  Bill  Reported to the House���Prospects of Its Passage.  THE  TIEN-TSIN .DIFFICULTY UNSETTLED.  British-and"Russian Commanders Are  Defiant and Serious Result's  -Not Unlikely.  London, March 21.���General Wo-  gaek has refusedto accept count  von Waldersee's arbitration at  Tien-Tsin, says the Pekin correspondent of the Daily Mail, wiring  yesterday, and demands that -the  British not only withdraw but  apologize for removing the Russian  flag. General Barrow refuses to do  either, and in so refusing has the  support of the British government.  British reinforcements are being  sent., t  Berlin, March 20.-r-In German  official circles it is asserted that  British ^and^Russian^guards^stilL  occupy the land in controversy at  Tien Tsin and that a satisfactory  adjustment of the matter may be  expected. The press does not consider tlie Tien Tsin incident vital.  All the papers express a belief that  Great Britain will yield. The  VossischeZeitung says thatEngland  cannot now afford to engage in a  serious conflict with Russia.  Thin Tsin, March 20.���In addition  to the Australians outposts from  the. lines of communication are  coming in to bo ready in case of  necessity. The British are under  arms to prevent the settlement  being rushed, but thoy do not anticipate such extremes.  Two Strike Calls.  Shamokin, Pennsylvania, March  20.���George Hartleiri, secretary of  No. 9 of the United Mineworkers'  Union, said today that if a general  tieup is ordered two strike calls  will be issued simultaneously, one  to the miners and another to tho  engineers, pumpmen and firemen.

London, Marcli 21.���The Shanghai  correspondent mentions a report  that the allies in the event of the  failure of emperor Kwang Su to return to Pekin intend to proclaim  his brother, prince Chun, as regent.  Hurricane and Flood.  Melhernih, March 20.���A hurricane swept the New Hebrides on  January 25, doing great damage.  Malrid, March 20.���Great damage has been done by the floods in  Andalusia.  Victoria, March 20.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���At a public meeting  held last night, called in the interest of the Victoria, Vancouver r&  Eastern road, E. V. Bod well said it  looked as if the premier and executive were controlled by the Canadian  Pacific railway. Today, in speaking to a question of privilege, premier Dunsmuir said such a statement was false; that the only interest he had as premier in any  corporation was his interest in the  province of British Columbia, and  iu making deals- for new railway  building he would see to it that the  province got the best of the bargain  that could possibly be had.. Martin  and Brown of the oppo'sition also  resented Bodwell's imputation.  It looks now as if the Coast to  Kootenay railway, if built," will be'  built without a cash subsidy, as the  members are beginning to see  through the schemes of the charter-  mongers.  The school bill passed its second  reading today without a division,  Curtis of Rossland alone voting  nay, Garden of Vancouver being  absent. It will undoubtedly be  amended in committee, as there is a  strong feeling against dual control  of city finances. -  The Lemon and Nolan appointments have been made and will be  gazetted tomorrow. :.-  The-Crow's Nest. Southern., Railway bill was reported to the. house  today by the railway ^committee. It'  will probably pass "wiflf a' penalty  clause to prevent the ��� hauling of  coal and coke out of the province  when' a supply is needed in the  province.  Jaffray is still here and has so  far refused to make contracts with  local smelters for a coal and coke  supply, notwithstanding reports to  the contrary.  The government has under consideration a scheme to issue twenty-  five million acres of land scrip at  one dollar an acre, the scrip to  carry everything in or on the land,  the proceeds to be used in building  railways through the province and  ���af ter built the roads to be leased  for operation. This scheme, if.  feasible and adopted, would give  government ownership and control  of railways without the hazard or  responsibility, of operation. The  land scrip^if issued, Jwonld_be=J:Qiu  -40r80~TG0y32() and 040 acre tracts  and could be located on unoccupied  crown lands anywhere in the  province.  If the people of Nelson are alive  to their best interests they can  secure the location of a refinery at  some point near Nelson on Kootenay lake.   Vancouver Notes.  Vancouver, March 20.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���The collier Wil-  liamette is fast breaking to pieces  on Denraan island, outside of Union  harbor, since she broke her back  yesterday.   She will be a total loss.  A delegation of 10 residents of  Nicola, Keremos and Camp MdKin-  ney passed through to Victoria today to press granting, subsidy to  the Vancouver, Victoria &'Eastern.  The first test of the new septic  tank for sewage disposal was  very satisfactory today.  EASTERN CANADA  TELEGRAMS.

Toronto.���A bill is now before  the Ontario legislature providing  that persons haying religious objections to vaccination haye the option  of declining to be vaccinated. Dr.  Sheard, city medical health officer,  says if the bill passes he will refuse  to be held responsible for keeping  smallpox out of Toronto, which is  rather well supplied with people; of  peculiar religious tenets.

It is scircely likely that the  legislature of British Columbia will  mss any measure, which requires  ;my assurance from James J. Hill,  or any other alien, that the people  of British Columbia will be allowed  't;o work out their own destiny.  , Thb reporting of the Crow's Nest  f-Southern railway bill to the 'legislature by the railway committee  does not in any way commit the  .nembers of the legislature to the  charter sought. On the railway  overy Martin vote is placed, and  nothing but a straight party vote  in committee could - shut the bill  out of the house.  Toronto newspapers, which heretofore never agreed upon any subject, are now unanimous in their  opinion that James J. Hill should  oo given his charter to tap.the,coal  fields owned by the Crow's Nest  Coal Company of Toronto. But it  Joes not follow that--.what would  be good for Toronto would be good  for Southern British Columbia.  Dr. Pagan's idea of the  duties  pertaining to the office of secretary  of the provincial  board of health  ive evidently restricted to standing  >ff   the    provincial    government's  creditors   in  Nelson.     Kootenay's  experience of the doctor as a health  ��� )fficer points to the conclusion that  in epidemic could depopulate the  listrict before he would consider  .-It necessary to move.    He should  00 transferred from the  health to  ������ihe finance department.  Ltkr   the i'ool and  his money,  politicians and their  policies   are  easily separated^   "Joe" Martin a  few   months   ago was   preaching  government ownership of railways.  Today he is the avowed champion  of Hill's railway,scheme to corner  :he fuel supply of Kootenay and  starve out Kootenay smelters.   W.  W. B. Mclnnes in his seat in the  ;,iouse of commons denounced tho  Crow's   Nest   Pass   coal' deal,   by I  avhich the present Toronto company j  came   into   possession of ;the cojil \  "anas, in such terms as to call .forth !  the wrath of the Toronto Globe.  .Today he is pursuing a policy which  will deprive the people of British  Columbia of even the right to purchase the coal which a foolish  government gave away for nothing.  Had the LeRoi smelter at North-  port, Washington, been built in  B itish Columbia it would have  meant the disbursing of some two  million dollars annually in Kootenay, which is now disbursed in the  United States. British Columbia  should not make any more mistakes  of this nature. Having the experience of the Le Roi smelter, in  mind, British Columbia cannot now  afford, by granting the charter of  the Crow's Nest Southern railway,  to place it in tho power of James J.  Hill to force the treating of all the  ores of Kootenay just where it  suits the interests of his railway  aid allied trusts to thave them  treated. This is what the granting  of the Hill railway charter would  mean.          Foil years British  Columbia has  been   striving   by   every   possible  meaus to encourage the reduction  and refining of its ores   within the  province.    During the past three  years the progress made   in   both  the mining aud smelting  branches  has been marvelous.   Smelters are  in operation at Nelson, at Trail, at  Grand Forks   and   at Greenwood,  with a fifth in course   of construction.     These,   however,   aro mere  test plants   compared   with what  may be expected if British Columbia is alive to its interests and husbands its resources?   The chief requisites for the desired growth is  an ample and cheap supply of fuel, present this is threatened.  The potency of the East Kootenay  coal   measures   to   determine, the  growth of the mining sections adja-  cent to them  has been recognized  by James. J. Hill.   He has secured  heavy interests in them, but in or-  ,der to render his control effective  he is now. seeking a direct railway  outlet from the coal fields, to the  internationalboundary.   He recognizes that the man who has  a monopoly-of'the coal  and coke business in.the mining sections, with a  direct the United States,  can by control of the price of  fuel,  and the freight rates for moving it,  make the entire business of the mining districts   of   Southern   British  Columbia tributary to such points  as he may designate, and to them  only.   This   is   the  power   which  James J.  Hill * is   now  seeking to  have the, provincial and the federal   .governments    place    in    his.  hands.   To secure this power his  agents .appear .willing to promise  that Mr. Hill - will foster reduction  and refining in British Columbia,  where he has infinitely smaller interests than he ha9_in_the_United  States, and at points which would  furnish   business  for his   railway  rivals in preference,to his own railways ; but Mr. Hill has -not been  heard from.   Once such a railway  charter as he seeks were granted  Mr. Hill might find it necessary to  revise the promises of his agents.  He might submit them all .to the  -standard   "business   is    business,"  and move Canadian fuel to such  points as best suited his interests  and the interests of those associated  with him.     He might apply  the  same rule to the location of smelting   points   for the   reduction   of  British Columbia ores, and in. doing  so would not be transgressing sound  business principles.   But what interests British Columbians most is  that they are asked to believe that  Mr. Hill will do none of these things  which   other   men possessing   the  same power would do, and placing  reliance in the promises  of agents  put it in Mr. Hill's power to dictate  the development of their province.  go into the water of the river here,  but we have never made a practice  of.depositing sawdust in the river  is the statement of the 19th instant  would lead mauy to infer.

There is no  mention of it in the official agency's  dispatch, but the London correspondent of the Novoye Vremya  characterizes the dispute a3 unimportant. Another Loudon correspondent quotes a French diplomat  as saying that an Anglo-Russian  war is impossible, as Russia need  only threaten to support the Boers  in order to bring Great Biitaiu on  her knees. The Novosti advocates  a Russo-Japanese alliance which  will assure Japan her present possessions and a large market for her  industrial products in Russian territory, where they will be protected  against Anglo-German competition.  In conclusion the article declares  this alliance is as important in the  Orient as the Franco-Russian  alliance is in the Occident. The  Novosti apparently regards the  Russo-American understanding as  permanent, as the paper does not  mention America's competition in  Russian territory, which is stronger  than the Anglo-German competition.  Peace Near at Hand.      ���  Iloilo, Philippine Islands, March  20���Judge Taft, president of the  United States Philippine commission, Mr. D.:C. Worcester and senator P.Delayera addressed the federalist in the theatre hero today.  Judge Taft declared that the  strongest evidence that peace was  at hand was tho fact that the Filipino people, including those of  Panay, wanted peace. Every American believed that the Filipino people must have all the civil liberty  which the constitution afforded. If  the commision failed to represent  that principle it would withdraw  by-universal demand. Americans  and Filipinos will realize all that  American sovereignty implied only  when the civil government has established its authority. Enthusiastic addresses were delivered by  natives.  A Missing Agent.  Hanson, Massachusetts, .March  20.���Rumors that the New York,  New. Haven & Hartford railroad  accountants have reported a shortage iu the freight accfmnts of J. E.  Josselyn,* formerly station agent at  South Hanson, whose unexplained  disappearance aroused great interest several days ago, reached here  today. Discoveries made by the  experts are said to show that Josselyn was involved in a transaction  which had netted him about $4.0,-  000 in the course of eight or nine  years. . This condition of affairs  has only resulted in making more  mysterious the disappearance of  the man who leftv behind him in  various banks cash enough to cover  the indebtedness to the road nearly  twice over. This has led to a growing belief that the man has committed suicide.  KOOTENAY.  GOFFEE COT  a************.**.***.***.*.**.

All the Hill Branch Lines in the Province Discourage Home Treatment ���  for British Columbia Ores.  The .theory has been advanced by  senator George ~A. Cox, that if the  provincial government will grant  tho charter to the Great Northern  road, which is being asked for in  the' name of the Crow's Nest  Southern Company, that the many  cars carrying coke to the United  States will be filled with dry ores  and hauled back to Canada for the  benefit of Canadian smelters. This  sounds well as a catch to those not  well informed upon the subject, and  gives Joe -Martin, Smith Curtis and  his colleagues another line of argument to fill in time. But what are  the facts in connection with this  subject as they exist today ?  James J. Hill today has a branch^  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed  on  deposits.

HOLT,  'Manager Nelson Branch.  been tendered by representatives of  the American Smeltiug & Refining  Company,   that   one .reason  they  have withdrawn from the purchase  of British Columbia lead ores during the past few months is due to  the fact that they did not have  sufficient dry ores.     Does any sane  man   believe   that   the   American  Smelting & Refining trust, backed  by their friend, James J. Hill, and  other United States railway magnates, is going to allow shipments  of a class of ore to Canada which  they   are already short of themselves?     It   will: be   difficult  for  senator   Cox, ~ in  so-called   annual  reports,   which   are   more   of the  order  of campaign documents, to  convince the people of the fact.that  the   granting of - this   additional  charter is   in   any way going to  change .Tames J. Hill's attitude towards Canada.    If senator Cox will point to a single instance in which the Great Northern  has   shown   its inclination to encourage or foster to the least degree any Canadian institution the.  people of British Columbia shall be  greatly obliged to   him.    On- the  contrary Hill has discriminated on  every one of his  branches against  home treatment and in the opinion  of most people will continue "to do  so   whether   he obtains the East  Kootenay charter or not.

Almost the entire business . of these roads has  been, and still is, to haul both dry  and   lead   ores   to   the   American  a singleton of dry ore has ever been  hauled by. any of the Great Northern branches from the United  States points to Canadian smelters;*  and the chances are ten to one that  the Great Northern never will haul  a pound of any kind of dry ore  from the United States to Canadian smelters. Why the granting  of this particular charter is going  to change all this, senator Cox has  failed to.explain: It may benoticed-  that 600 or 700 tons of ore is going  from Canada to Northport, Washington, daily, and the cars all come  back empty. The rate from Rossland to Northport is 75 cents per  ton, and from Northport to Rossland at least $2 per ton. Take the  Nelson branch of the Hill system.  A few tons of Ymir ore come to the  Hall Mines smelter under a $2 rate,  while the.rate to Northport is $1.-  Take the Siocan branch. The  Great Northern last year hauled at  least 50 tons per day to American  smelters, and the cars all came  back empty. Again, tlie local rate  from Sandon to Kaslo is $5 per ton,  making ib impossible for any Canadian smelter to handle any tonnage  of ores located on Hill's Kaslo &  Slocan road; Prom Creston the  Hill system quotes a rate from that  point to Great Falls of about $3  per ton, but no rate from Great  Falls to Creston of $3 per ton; on  the contrary, no rate whatever,  And no rate can be obtained.  What is more information has  The German-emperor is in direct  line of succession to the 'British  throne, bnt not so near as to worry  him. There are twenty-five lives  between the kaiser and the crown,  aud so loug as any one of these remains there is no possibility"of his  ruling the British empire.:  There are those who claim that  the German emperor is the rightful  heir to the British throne, the contention being that he should succeed as the eldest son of the eldest  child of the queen. Those who hold  this theory, however, forget the  fact that the law of succession deprived daughters of the right to  succeed so long as there are sons in  the direct line living. The empress  Frederick, through ' whom the  kaiser has the right to succeed to  the throne, has, therefore only the  remotest possibility of being called  to reign.. Supposing there were no  other difficulties, the German emperor could not possibly become  king of England until the whole of  the direct male line had been exhausted.  Even if the right, of the emperor  to sit on the British throne might  be claimedjm.aperfectlyJegitimate^  basis, parliament, could prevent it.  The contingency has been provided  for by the. Act of Settlement, which  invests the house of commons with  the right of excluding certain persons from the line of. succession  smelters. It is questionable whether.'] Auy claimant through the house of  Hanover must admit the power of  parliament to veto his .claim. The  power of parliament in regard to  such questions is very wide. It has  exercised the power of limiting or  modifying the hereditary succession to the throne from a comparatively early period in history. The  ease of Henry VII supplies tho first  instance of such an interference.  Further, in view of the impending  extinction of the Protestant descendants of Charles I, a. statute  was enacted vesting the right of  the crown on the next Protestant  line, according to the regular order  of succession, in the event of William and Mary dying without issue.  This appears to have been the latest  parliamentary limitation to the  crown, but the right of the people  to limit the succession is secured by  VI Anne, chapter 7.  Sir Edward Coke, referring to  the omnipotence of parliament,  says: "The power and jurisdiction  of parliament is so transcendant  and absolute that it can not be confined, either for causes or persons,  within any bounds. Parliament  can regulate or remodel the succession to the crown, as was done in  the reign of Henry VIII. and  William III." Royal succession  has frequently involved delicate  and nice considerations, and tp  precedent careful regard is paid in  questions of such momentous issue.

George McNair, foreman at the  Nelson^Saw and Planing Mills Company,, died very suddenly at the  general hospital on Tuesday.night.  When starting for work in the  morning he complained to his roommate, W. Taylor, that he was not  feeling in the best of trim, but  during the day he attended to his  duties as usual. Shortly after 0  o'clock in the evening both men had  supper together and came up town,  and about 8 o'clock McNair returned  to his cabin. An hour afterwards  Taylor got home aud found his  companion lying on the bed with  coat' and shoes off and in evident  pain. : "Go for a doctor for I am  dying," said ��� the deceased. His  friend immediately complied with  ��� the request and proceeded to the  general hospital, a couple of mimites  walk -from the -cabin, where he  found Dr. Rose.V The doctor went  down at once and finding McNair  in a low condition ordered his removal to the hospital. This was  done, and shortly after admission  the man had an- apoplectic stroke  causing hemorrhage of the brain,  which caused death.  Deceased was well and favorably  known in Nelson.- He was a man  about 55 years of age, a bachelor,  and belonged to the Masonic fraternity, as well as the Knights oi  Pythias.' These orders have taken  charge of the funeral arrangement?,  and will form iu procession at the  undertaking parlors this afternoon  at 4:30. The body will be taken tc  the Presbyterian church, where services will be held, after which the  cortege will reform aud accompany  the remains of a worthy brother tc  the railway depot. Deceased hat  numerous relatives at the coast and  will be interred at New Westminster. Charles Hillyer will accompany -the remains to tho Royal  City, where he will be able to speak  of the esteem in which deceased  was- held during his sojourn in  Nelson. <  Thomas Henry O'Brien.  In yesterday's.Trihune the death  of   Thomas   Henry    O'Brien    was  briefly   announced.   The   deceased  has lived in Nelson since the fall oi  1899.    He ��was   born   at   Nenagh.  county Tipperary;<Ireland, 35 yeare  ago,   and- when*'quite   a   young  man was ' called to the Irish - bar.  Owing- to ill-health,   however, -he  was.never engaged actively at.vhi.c  profession,   and   being   a   man  oi  means, traveled   very extensively.  Being of a retiring disposition, few  but his   intimate friends enjoyed  the pleasure of his confidence.   Tc  those favored ones he was a brillianl  conversationalist,;.  and    endowed  with  rare   powers  of observation  and a keen appreciation of wit and  humor, his tales of-travelj told witli  a rich Irish   brogue,   were indeed  fascinating.   He   had   coveied   all  the     well     known      tracts      of  Egypt    and     the     Holy     Land  and     spent     considerable     time  in     touring     throughout     South  Africa.   With the European continent he was familiar and was in his  happiest-vein=-when=narrating==hi&=  experiences among the peculiar peo  pie he encountered.:   The mountain  air of the Kootenays, with the free  and easy life he led here, seemed tc  agree with O'Brien, and up'to a few  months ago he used to declare that  he never enjoyed better health.   Of  recent date, however, he made   the  discovery tliat he was troubled with  diabetes   in   an. advanced    stage.  From the date of this diseoyery he  appears to have: lost   his   wanton  vigor, aud declared "1 am afraid  I  can't fool the doctors this   time.    I  have been battling with a bad constitution for years, but the fight  is  over now, and I am not the victor."  Yesterday morning an affectionate letter from his sister in Ireland,  enclosing a spray of Shamrock and  wishing him many happy returns  of the day, arrived in Nelson���but  too late;   The remains will  be interred   tomorrow   morning,    after  high mass at the   church of  Mary  Immaculate, which is fixed for 9:50.  A cable has been sent to the sister  of deceased in Ireland and also to  his brother, a Jesuit priest, of Sydney, Australia. '���������-���  Strike on the Kuskoquim.  Seattle, March 20.���S. G.
