"        -   -'_ ;���   The mayor explained that the  man had already been sent .to the  home.  A. P.

Several petitions were read asking  for sidewalks iu various parts of  the city, all of which was.referred  to the board of works.  ''Bylaw No. 91, dealing with road  tax collectors, was finally passed  and adopted.  . Bylaw No. 92, regulating cemetery  matters, was, laid over for the  present, the mayor explaining that  he had written for information on  the subject to other cities.  In; reference to the application  from the Rocky Mountain Rangers'  Band for a.contribution, the'mayor  explained that thej subject was  somewhatnconrplicatcdrTAf  the instruments were  concede the site and the wator  power the mill would be built and  in operation this summer.  Alderman Selous pointed Out that  while at present the overflow was  considerable it could not be  depended on for more than eight  months in the year.  Mr. Jackson said his friend was  prepared to take chances on this.  The mayor a,ud aldermen favored  the proposition and referred the  matter to the board of works for  report. . ,    .  Attention   was   called    by    the  mayor to thefact that a number of.  Chinamen we're takiggypdssession bf  the park site receht^^^^^ssgd by  the. city, and. were ^^|^^P^^i  sive   tracts.

After some discussion the matter  was referred to the mayor arid city  engineer with power to act.  Alderman Hamilton called attention to the presence of a number  of dilapidated shacks at the rear of  the   Sherbrooke   hotel.

Commission to Investigate and Officially Report.  ; (At the. meeting of: the- city council last night the proposed rail wray  charter tor a line from the Ferine  tffl.{al  fields  to. the   international  ^undary was freeily discussed, and  to  be  health  taken  "far as  concerned he  did not see that the council had any  control.  In reply to a question the city  clerk said that the baiid last year  was voted $50 per mouth and drew  this for four months.-  . Alderman   Hamilton    suggested  that if any subscription be given  there   should   be some   guarantee  that the organization would hold  together.    .'������..  >/. The mayor said that he believed  the instruments  cost $550,  mainly  ��� subscribed by the citizens of Nelson.    Now there -was some dispute  as.tp their ownership.   The matter  l^^i'^erred.to the mayor for fur-  'thei?, investigation. .��.-  1 it was decided to lay some 300\|  foet of water pipe to connect with  the general hospital. It was shown  that at present the water service  to the institution is. that from a  half-inch pipe, which is ��� altogether  inadequate and affords no protec-  , tion against fire. */|  Mr. J. Jackson addressed the  Iboard on the subject. of .the  establishment of a flour mill ih  Nelson. He explained that he had  had a letter from a friend in the  east who was willing to build a  ���flour mill here if the council would  grant him a site for the mill and  . the waste water flowing past the  city electric power house. He explained that at present the -wheat  bought at Moosejaw and Regina had  to be brought to the Lake of the  Woods to be ground, and that with  a mill at Nelson all that was  required of the grain could be  brought here as cheaply as to the  Lake of the Woods. This would  give the citizens the advantage of  cheaper flour.   If the council would  sidered^them dangerous  and suggested that steps  to remove them.  This suggestion started a general  discussion of ^ the shack question.  Almost every one present referred  to shacks in various sections of the  city���unsightly, unsanitary shacks.  Many of these, it was shown, are on  the C. P. It. ground along by the  line of railway.  On motion of alderman Selous it  was decided to post a notice on the  shacks in/ question calling upon  those living in them to vacate  within a specified time. It was also  arranged that -the C. P. R. people  be asked to take similar action  with the squatters on their lands.  A lot of routine business having  been disposed of the board- adjourned.  Notes From .the Orient.  Victoria, March 18.���The Neu  Chawng correspondent of the North  LGhiriaJJDaily.-News says" that on'the  night of .February Oth .two soldiers  were fired at by robbers while on  guard and one was killed. Guards  were then put at the east end of  the city gates, but regardless of  this the robbers were still bold and  on the 10th informed a large  Chinese firm that they would send  men to collect a large sum of blackmail. The police were informed  and the Russians sent a guard. The  robbers came after nightfall and  out of twelve the guard captured  two.  The Jiji prints the following details of the provisions of Russian  control of Manchuria gleaned from  most reliable sources, it says, by  the Pekin correspondent: The  Russo-Chinese secret agreement  provides for the nominal restoration of Manchuria to China when  peace_js_;declared.-butJ Russia-in^  tends to station troops there to protect her railway. Should a disturbance arise in China these troops  are to be dispatched to assist the  Chinese government. In the event  of China wishing to station her own  troops in Manchuria, she must first  refer the matter to Russia.  Importation of arms and ammunition into Manchuria by China is  prohibited. Local officials are to  be appointed by Russia and no  other foreigners than Russians are  to be appointed to the positions.  Chinese forces, army and navy, in  northern China are to be drilled by  no other foreigners than Russians.  A system of self-government shall  be proclaimed at Kinchow. No  concessions for mines and railways  shall' be granted to other nations  than Russia, and she alone shall  collect taxes north of Manchu. Expenses in the recent campaign incurred on the railway and elsewhere shall be borne by China.  ['China ��hall also concede other  privileges to Russia in compensation for above damages and shall  permit Russia to construct a branch  railway to the great wall.  In Korea the Russians seem to be  installing themselves well for a late  issue of the Korea Review says that  of late all the Korean army officers  have adopted Russian military uniforms. _^  Boat Crews Training.  London, March 18.���The Oxford  and Cambridge crews today began  their first full week's work over the  Putney-Mortlake course, preparing  for the annual race between these  two universities, which is to be ' decided Saturday, March 30, The  weather was bitterly cold and a  northeaster was blowing..  with but one dissentient/the board  passed a resolution calling upon the  provincial     legislature    to    defer  action until the matter "has! been  investigated by a royarcommissio^y'  The members were in a���, thorough?  business   mood when the   subject  was broached, and with" cool deliberation dealt with the issues Involved.     Alderman   Sei&as.. alone  objected   to the adoption  of \the  resolution and his protest was not  by any means a vigorous one.    The  pros and cons of the case have .been  so liberally debated in the public  press   and   by   the public..bodies  throughout the country that everyone is or ought to be conversant  with the position of affairs.    The  action   taken   by  the mayor and  board of aldermen of   Nelson  will  doubtless   be   followed   by   other  similar bodies and be productive of  good results.  - The resolution was proposed by  alderman "Paterson and was as  follows:  Whereas, application has been  made to the provincial- legislature  for a' charter for a railway from the  Fernie coal- fields to the "International boundary line, and whereas, there is a difference of opinion  as to the advisability of granting  said charter at the present time, in  view;'of thev-prbbable -effect which  the granting of said charter- might  liave upon the fuel supply of the  country necessary for the successful  operation of Kootenay smelters,  therefore, be it resolved - that this  council endorses the proposal that  the provincial legislature defer  action upon said charter until the  matter has been thoroughly investigated by a royal commission.  The mayor said that' there was  no doubt a great deal said on the  subject by parties who- knew but  little if anything as to the extent  of the coal beds. It would be"a very  serious thing for this ..:.* country if  there should ever happen to be a  shortage of fuel to operate the  smelters or for manufacturing purposes, and' many people believed  that this would be the case ; if the  railway charter in question be  :grahted.^HejwoiiId-notJbgJn^fay.or=  of shutting out. competition, but it  was certainly their duty to protect  their own interests whenever they  are threatened.  Alderman Paterson���The holders  of that charter would have the  power to cripple our smelters by  keeping back the coal. They could  retard the progress of the country  if they wished to do so.  Alderman Gillett,7-:But would  they do it? r ��'"'���  Alderman Paterson>���Well, we see  that a number of the mines have  closed down in consequence of the  smelters at the other side refusing  to treat the lead. If we had not  the coke for our own smelters, all  the mines would be closed. .  Alderman Hamilton-T-.I7 am told  that the Canmore coal is petering  out.  The mayor said that he was up in  that country in 1883, and at that  time there was a great deal being  said about the great extent of the  coal beds. Some held that there  were millions of tons there, but the  fact was- that today these mines  could not supply orders; they really  had not the coal. He had ordered  some anthracite months ago, but  had not got it yet.  Alderman Hamilton said that the  C. P. R. would probably have to  look to the Crow's Nest Pass for  their fuel supply in the near future.  The mayor^-I think Nelson is the  only city that has not been represented by a delegation on the  school question, the coal question  or oh the other'matters agitating  the public mind at present, and I  do not think there can beany harm  in putting such a resolution as this  before the government.  Alderman Selous said he. would  rather see the matter put in another  way. If this charter be granted it  should be on condition that an  ample supply of Coal for all purr  poses be assured for British Columbia. The railway company would  comply with conditions of that sort.  It appears to him like a dog-in-the-  manger business ,:to: prevent the  company from getting in and mining all the coal they wanted so long  as a good supply was assured for  this province.  The mayor said that, that would  be a matter of trade and commerce.  The idea was that before the  charter be granted tlie provincial  and Dominion governments should  "investigate. A thorough knowledge of the conditions would certainly be of advantage. A couple  of years ago when 'Mr. Corbin  wanted a charter, for a i ail way in  the Boundary country they opposed  it on the ground that it would  divert-the trade of ."that section to  the south,- This was a very serious  ^question. As far as he was concerned he did not .believe there was  one-hundredth part of the coal in  the Crow's Nest-1 Pass that some  "people seemed to think. Some years  ago he'inspected coal lands in the  Bow River country that were said  to be very extensive, but when they  got down 500 or 800 feet it was  found that the.coal would not pay  to mine. 'Now the Fernie people  "say that it will take them a year to  develop their mine so that they can  take out big quantities of coal.  Would it not be well to let them  proceed with the development ? It  was" claimed-that there was lots of  coal in Alberta, but these people  did not appear, anxious to get in  there. -  ' Alderman Hamilton said that the  Alberta coal was not a steam coal.  After some further discussion'tho  resolution was put and ' carried,  alderman Selous alone voting nay.  AS YET NO SIGN OF PEACE  PRELIMINARY STEPS TAKEN  RAILWAY BILL BEFORE LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE.

South Africa, said the government'  had not made any promise to institute an investigation.    He feared  that a1 full, just aud equitable in"  quiry would lead to a renewal  of  the   same speeches of regrettable -  discussion as occurred during the  exchange of the speeches between  lord Wolseley and lord Lansdowne.  Still, if the government should be  urgedto make an inquiry, it could  not   refuse   without   casting _ sus-'  picion upon the army.  Lord Rosebery wished to know "  when the government had- vvashed  its hands of the inquiry and  who  had promised it. -'   "  Lord-Salisbury suggested the~ap-��  pointment of a preliminary commission to inquire into the promise,-  whereupon     the      subject      was  dropped.

"The admiralty held no '  exaggerated notions as to the value  of submarine boats," he remarked,  " but we have collected a" great deal  of information which it is proposed  to use to the full'value."  c-  w  ^;*i'jferS  Sag:  xM00<  !fffl|l  ���fimimi  ���,2_&7-Mm  mm  7"&Wm  ssjii.  tfrnmrnX  BIS  mm  PffBl  :a'7Si��-SM1  7'?y$XML  Slip  ���f.i--4.-4m  TCT?.LV'.-,3ffiKlT  ������#��pg��**  .*t.v--?*4~t$j,\  The Russian Way.

AN INSPECTION IS RESPECTFULLY  INVITED.   *  THE  HUDSON'S  BAY  STORES  ��he ��xxbxtw+  The   railway   program    of -the  'M anitoba government'has developed  quite a storm of opposition, and an  open fight is now on between'the  -  premier and the editor of the Free  Press.   Premier Roblin hasthreat-  ,-���-*��   ened to have the editor before the  bar of the legislature for contempt,  but the editor has hurled back his  defiance that he has more men in  .   ais office than the premier can send  ,   after him, and that the  printers  will give a good account of themselves.    Up to the hour of going to  press the premier has not made his  threat good.  The members of the city council   >   last evening added their protest to  the others which have been^ raised  against James J.  Hill's efforts to  '   perfect his   corner upon the fuel  supply of East Kootenay.   Should  ���'   Hill succeed in his ambitious scheme  Nelson would suffer more than any  other city in the interior, and it  was   doubtless   the   knowledge of  this which prompted the members  of theucity council to take up and  discuss   a   question --which   under  ordinary   circumstances   might be  regarded as beyond their jurisdiction./' It is not likely that any fault  will be found with the action of the  council, since in their resolution the  aldermen take the very reasonable  position      that      the     interests  of   the     country     shall     receive  first   consideration.       To    secure  this end it is necessary that action  upon the application of the Crow's  Nest Southern railway charter be  deferred until such time as a royal  commission can present a dispassionate report  upon the probable  effect   of   granting   such   charter.  Despite all the clamor that is being  raised  by   the   Crow's  Nest Coal  Company and the active agents of  Mr. Hill, there is no urgency for the  proposed railway.   The provincial  market for the product of the coal  company has more than kept .pace  with the company's  facilities -for  production.  On the company's'own  showing the market'which' it desires  to   reach   is   south   of the   international    boundary,    and    public  opinion will support the 'legislature  in deciding that before the present  :uiel supply is diverted to the  United States some assurance  must be had that the fuel  supply of the British Columbia  smelters shall not'be impaired. Mr.  Hill may be quite within his rights  in endeavoring to secure control of  the East Kootenay coal fields. It  is doubtless good business for hia  railway trust to work in harmony  with the United States lead and  smelter trust; but in such a Combination it is easy to see that British  Columbia's interests may suffer.  .With Hill in control of the coal  fields it will be: to his own interest  to secure the fuel tonnage for his  own railway system, and if ho can  market every ton of the product  in the United States it will suit his  purpose even better, because in  such event he knows that the Canadian ores must follow the Canadian fuel into the United States  for treatment, which means so  much more business for his railway^  These are all conditions which may  be brought about by the passage of  the Crow's Nest Southern railway  bill, and the Nelson city council  acts wisely in suggesting that before such legislation is passed a  royal commission be 'appointed to  ascertain what measures may be  necessary to safeguard provincial  interests.    The easy, off-handed way in  which some people talk about placing a heavy export duty ;-on coal in  the event of the product of the  Crow's - Nest coal fields showiug  signs of exhaustion is decidedly  amusing. These wise men overlook  the fact that an export tax of that  kind would have to -be general in  its application, -and consequently  not to be considered at any stage  of the game. This-trick being exposed, the wise men claim'for the  Crow's Nest'coal fields-a supply  almost illimitable in extent, but  . they overlook- the somewhat better  authority of "experts that explorations already" made do not justify  any'such conclusion. No one will  deny that there "is a vast area of  coal at Fernie, but much of it has  'beenshown-tobe of-a quality'thoroughly unfitted for use. Particularly is'this the case in the product  mined at Michel, where some of it  contains as high as 15 and 16 per  cent ash. Of "course, there is much  good" coal, but" in the event of Hill  securing the charter, the choice  article would be 'carried over the  boundaryline and -the inferior "pro-  duct supplied to Canadian smelters.  Indeed, "considerable of the coke  supplied the British Columbia smelters during the past year was of  the :latter- grade. ' This is not a  pleasing prospect for . Canadians  who place the future of their country before all other considerations.  Butthere-is -no evidence=-to-show-  that Jim Hill feels-blue-over it, and  his accomplices on this ' side" of the  line ease their consciences by dilating on the compensating advantages  of an imaginary open-door railway  policy. .  Desires Protection for the Fish.  To the Editor of The Tribune:  I notice at Winlaw's saw mill, about  thirteen miles down the Slocan  river from Slocan City on the  C. P. R., that Mr.'Winlaw is dumping all his sawdust from the mill  into the river. The river has always  afforded the very best of fishing,  and I think the authorities should  put a stop to the practice before it  is too late, for fishing is one of the  finest sports'that British'Columbia  affords. I think it is'a shame that  Mr. Winlaw should be allowed to  destroy such a fine fishing ground,  by polluting the river with sawdust, when he could easily burn it.  Kindly insert this in your paper  aud by so doing I trust the  authorities will take action at once.  I remain, yours truly,  Thomas Kerr.  Slocan (City, March 10th, 1901.   ���  and is fitting up a rabbitry at  Bogustown which will be conducted  on the most approved lines. The  Belgian hare does well in warmer  olimates than Nelson, but it is satisfactory to know that they thrive  here also. ; The flesh is said to be  palatable and wholesome, and if it  but suits the refined tastes of Nelson  epicures there will no doubt be a  good demand for it.  -The Belgian Hare.  Some five or 'six months ago T.  Rendall imported some prize Belgian  hares as an experiment, intending  to start a-rabbitry should it prove  successful. He now 'reports that  the -animals are'doing splendidly  and-'miVe increased and multiplied  to-his entire satisfaction. 'He lost  afdw of the'young stock during the  winter, but-on ;the whole the Belgian 'hare takes kindly to this  elittiate. * Mr. Rendall ia now going  into the ; business ou a large scale <  Townsite Troubles.  Judgment has been handed down  in the case of Harris vs. Pitts  recently heard at Nelsou before Mr.  justice Irving. Before the lire  which swept out Sandon occurred  mayor Pitts had his business premises On the then main street, nearly  opposite the Reco Hotel, On tho  same site he proposed to rebuild,  but Mr. Harris, the owner of the  lots, objected on the ground that  such a building would interfere  with contemplated structures in  the immediate vicinity. The Pitts  site, it was contended, was practically on the public road and an obstruction. The judgment justgivenj  is in favor of plaintiff. .  A Napoleon Mask.  . The recovery from an ash barrel  recently of adeath-mask of Napoleon  that originally was in the Spooner-  collection of art works in North  Plainfield, N.J., recalls the fact that  the original mask of Napoleon���a  priceless relic���was until a few  years ago in the possession of a  citizen of Matamoras, Mexico. : Six  hours after the death of the great  Corsican Dr. Antominarchi, his  private physician, took a plaster  cast of the face of Napoleon. So  excessive a price did he set upon  his treasure that the. Historical  Society of. France, dominated by  Bourbon sentiment, refused to purchase, it.. Disgusted, "the doctor  settled in Mexico^ On his death"the  mask came into the possession of  Dr. Calleros, of Matamoras, Mexico,  in whose family it remained up to  theperiod of, the Napoleonic craze,  six.years ago. At that time a perfect cast, owned by Frank Marsh of  San Antonio, was taken, says the  Boston Journal, but, in the process  the original mask was destroyed.'  KOOTENAY....

Hill and His Syndicate'Would Cripple  the Smelting Industry of  the Province.  ���\Tlio attempt of James J.  Hill to  secure control of the Crow's Nest  coal   fields   is   really   the   artistic  , rounding off of   the   long-existing  conspiracy to rob British Columbia  for the aggrandizement of Ameri-  ��� can adventurers./'This conspiracy  took its first shape when it became  .known that British Columbia was  rich in  ores, and during the progress of its incubation the residents  of this province have never ceased  'to   be   threatened   by   alien    aggressors.  In what way does British Col-%  Huibia reap auy benefit from the  Rossland ores smelted at Northport?  "With economical management  Rossland ores should be mined and  placed upon the cars at $4 per-ton,  and this amount actually represents  what British Columbia miners receive, per ton, for their product.  The Northport smelter ratie is $4.50  per ton for freight- and treatment,  the pay for copper on a basis of dry  -assay being at $l*'per unit, and foi"  05- per cent.of.the gold, $20 per  ounce. Thus on an ore containing  1.8 percent copper and' gold\40 of  tin ounce, the total direct and indirect charge for freight and treatment at the smelter, freight upon  the product, refining charge, commissions, etc.,-is over-$8 per ton for  marketing metals.  The product of the Le Roi mine  approximately reaches 182,000 tons  per year, for" which the company  expends $728,000 annually. Further  than.this, no. benefit accrues to  Canadians. The freight, "treatment,  refining charges, commissions for  - selling, etc., amounting to $8 per  ton, or on the year's product $1,-  450,000,- all goes into the pockets of  the " owners of., the . Northport  smelter. These figures, although  somewhat startling,. can*. easily\.be  verified. , j     . . i>  Previous to the building" of "the  Northport smelter, the American'  line tojihat point was operated at,  machiue that enables you to sleep  while   you wait.   Americans   will  certainly regard  this invention as  wonderfully typical of British habit  and character.   The machine is six  feet two inches high and A little  larger in girth than the weighing  machines    with    which    we    are  familiar.     You   drop   an   English  penny (two cents) in the slot, and a  -comfortable, leather-covered couch  comes out of the machine and falls  into   a   horizontal position.   It is  provided with an adjustable wrap,  so that the user can keep himself  warm in cold weather.   After the  occupant gets off the couch it rises  automatically into place and can  only be brought down again by the  insertion of another penny.  Machines are being erected at  -railway stations, theatres, parks  aud in various other places where  there is space. When the Englishman finds time hanging heavily on  his hands he loves to" go away and  sleep. It is believed the- .machine  will be greatly appreciated at  English railroad stations, where  passengers have to wait many hours  for trains. Doctors believe that it  will be a great benefit to the health  of the community. Much has been  written lately about the rush and  restlessness of modern English life,  and this will tend' to relieve that  curse. ---."."

This was the  beginning of tlie igreat conspiracy.?  s Now comesy the .second chapter.  ^ffighly indignant.7 that7, Canadian  smelters should in, any way interfere or compete with his enterprise,  James J. Hill threatens to deprive  those now in operation, and. others  in conteraplation,"of the very essential requisite.of.Coke'..'- At St. Paul  lie confers "with the owners of the  only available : coal fields and  secures a controlling interest in the'  Crow's Nest. coal mines.. Then he  asks for a railway, charter, the  granting of which will enable him  to carry that product io the south  of the boundary line, there to  establish other smelting industries..  So far/the Crow's Nest coal fields  have not been able to supply the  local- smelter requirements, and  with other demands being-made  upon their resources, every smelter  ..now in operation would be forced  to close down.y* Hill would then  have accomplished his pet scheme  of throttUng this growing Canadian  industry.yBritish Columbia smelters  may be closed down every day in  the week, but it is safe to say that  James J. Hill will, in the language  of the street, hav^e coke to burn all  the year round.OBut the impertinence of those exploiters reaches the  highest degree of sublimity when  they coolly ask Canadian legislators  to be their accomplices in working  out the details of their schemed  A Novel Machine.  The   latest   triumph of   British  o/iginality   is   a  penny-in-the-slot  -.j A Cave With a-Tragedy."  The Burkville cave in Illinois, recently explored, is, according .to  many scientists, the most interest-.  ing'cave irithe world. As asresult,  Burkville, the little town in the  center of the cave district, twenty-  five miles from St. Louis, -will become a Mecca' of geologists. Frank  L.' Christraan, says, the .St. Louis  Post-Dispatch, an ��� ethnologist familiar with the subterranean wonder,  declares that the caves are multitudinous iu number, with many bottomless holes, with strange" Indian  drawings at the various entrances,  and footprints of tree-climbers or  cliff-dwellers that-are" rarely found  in such perfection.'  Sixty years ago the cave had its  tragedy. Two daring young Frenchmen of New Design, III., entered the  cave, expecting to explore it before  night.  But they lost their way and  ; finally, after many hours of walking, -their lanterns went out and  they found themselves in darkness.  One,- tired and weak, lay down to  rest until assistance could reach  them. -The other placed a- handkerchief ih his comrade's hand as a  guide to him when he should return.  Late the next day he found an exit.- At  the entrance, weakened by loss of  rblood flowing fromwounds lacerated  by stalactites,"he feel asleep and;  did not awaken until the next day.  He at once summoned a searching  party, but no trace of his companion  could be found.- --.  ' Day  after  day  for   weeks" the-  (search was continued, but not until.  j three months later did a hunter  discover the body of the young explorer with the handkerchief  clutched in his hand.  To Tell a Woman's Age.  Every man seems to be born with  a desire to know the-age bf ladies  with whom he" comes in contact.  Women also appear to" have an  innate curiosity concerning the  number of "summers" which have  passed over the heads of their female friends. Biit .there is nothing  more difficult to discover than the  exact age of a wornan who wishes  to keep the fact a secret. Now,  here is a little scheme wh'ch a  mathematician has just discovered  to find out the age of any person.  Having engaged that- person in  pleasant conversation,, "you' proceed  something after the following manner, speaking very innocently,' of  course:  " There is a very simple problem  in* arithmetic which very few people  are able to see through, yet it is as  easy as possible. I wonder if you  can do it ?" This sets the woman  on her dignity, and she wants tb do  it at once. "Think of a number-  corresponding to the numerical  order of the month in which you  'were .born. Oh, no, you need not  tell me." (To make the explanation  clear, we will assume that the figure  is 2���standing for February���and  that the age is 30.) "Now multiply  that  figure   by 2," you continue,  "and add 5. Done that? Well,  multiply that by 50, and add your  own age. From the total subtract  305, and to the total add 115. Now  what figure have you got?"  "230," replies the person  addressed. "Isn't that correct."  "Exact!" you exclaim. "You are  one of the very few persons who  have managed it." And you turn'  away to'hide.your smile of satisfaction at having discovered that your  victim was born in February, and  that she is thirty years of age. You  have arrived at this result by  separating the figures 230 in 2  (February) and 30. And you can  do thih with everybody's age. Try  it on your sweetheart.  Origin of Prairie Fires.  Investigations into the causes of  the numerous prairie fires in the  cattle ranges of Montana and western Dakota seem to show strong  reasons for the belief that -many of  them, at least, owe their origin to  the presence of broken bottles that  are scattered freely along the trails  and wagon roads of that section.  It is reported that in many cases  the origin has been directly traced  to this source,, the evidence pointing  clearly to the theory that the sun's  rays, focused through the curved  glass, have caused ignition of the  dry prairie grass, from which the  fires have spread, and assumed their  tremendous proportions before they  were ��,. discovered.. Nor did ,,the  bottles.contain "fire-water"  either.

The' prisoners were suffering from  the after effects . of St. Patrick's,  Day observances. One of them contributed $5 to the public,treasury  Avid the' rfther two we'r,e sent to jail  for ten days, not having the.where-  withal to satisfy the demands of  stern justice.  Contractor Gunn is making good  progress with the Robson. bridge.  There now remains but eight feet  of the center pier to raise above  high water aud good progress is  being made upon it, the pier going  up at the rate of three feet per ,day.  Work on the bridge was continued  all Sunday and a night shift was  started this week. .  A man named William. Wad die  was admitted to the general hospital yesterday evening suffering  froma-bad-wound_accide'ntally-inflicted, He. was rowing in his boat  near Sanca, when his gun. fell  from the seat and went off, the full  charge of shot lodging in his neck  and shoulder. He was, picked up  by'a passing steamer, and brought  to Nelson.  A few days ago four cops of  quail arrived at Nelson by the; International, consigned to M. Daly  of Ashcroft. The birds were all  very fine specimens���the best that  Kansas could produce. It is understood that Mr. Daly intends to set  them '.. at. large on his ranch and  hopes to, acclimatize them.

'       '.' ���      .  ..A Big Granite Quarry.  Thirty men are engaged taking  stone for the Robson bridge from  the quai-ry at Roberts'ranch. There  is a spur run from the main line of  railway which materially expedites  work. The stone.is a hard close-  grained granite and there is an immense body bf it. In all probabiK  ity the material for the new custom  house and postoffice will be taken  from this quarry, as it is pronounced by experts to be of excellent quality.  A Big. Season Looked For.  The Nelson Saw & Planing Mills,  j Limited,    resume    operations    on  | Thursday .morning.   Early in;-No-  j vember last the mill closed down  j for    repairs,    and   these    having  : been accomplished, tbe severity of  ; the weather prevented the econom-  : ical handling of logs, thus further  j delaying   work.     However, all   is  now in readiness and  with  many  large orders on hand and bright  prospects for the coining season's  building operations, the mill will be  . kept humming in future, "^his mill  was one of the pioneer industries"  , of Nelson���of the Kootenays, for  that matter.   Its capacity is 25,000  feet of lumber per day, and it is  now to be-worked at full blast. Upwards of a million feet of lumber is  at   present   in the booms  at the  wharf and several million logs have  been   cut   at   the   various   camps  operated by the company during  the winter   and are ready to be  iloated down as soon as the waters  of the lake rise.  , The mill gives steady employment to 45 or 50 men, and last year  paid out in wages $32,000, all, or  nearly all, of which was spent in  the city. This does not include the  amounts paid in running the various  logging camps, all of which are  tributary to Nelson. It. will thus  be seen what significance attaches  to the resumption of work in this  establishment. (��n agreeably conspicuous feature in connection with  the Nelson sawmill .is that only  white men are employed. There is  not a single MongolianJ>in the service of the company, although the  rule in lumber yards appears to be  that almond-eyed laborers are the  proper- thing. , They ' no doubt  possess the advantages whicli cheap  labor is supposed to - confer, but  never have they been employed in  this mill.    ��� -  Manager Hillyer says that indications are that the building trade  this year will be exceptionally good  in Nelson ��� ancL no effort will be  spared on his part to meet ������ the demand forlumber.- He is also cater-  ing-for a-big outside trade.  Smallpox at Phoenix   -  Arrivals ."- from the -Boundary  country lastnight say that there is  an outbreak of- smallpox at Phoenix.  Mp. Clement reports having met a  quarantine officer on his way from  Eholt; to Phoenix to isolate the suff-  "erers.,' It appears that the .disease  made..-its. appearance1 among- the  miners, in one���of. the bunkhouse?,  and several were soon affected. The  disease .is also>.rampant in some  parts of.the Northwest ��� Territories,  and probably today- an.-officer- will  be put on duty,.to see that parties  arriving in��Nelson :from ��� that section can show- a clean bill of health.  Quarantine of the Club.  The police had a'busy time yesterday morning' hunting up the  boarders of the Club hotel. Several  of the patrons of the establishment  were down town when the quarantine was declared, owing to two  well-developed cases of diphthei ia  being-reported. In all, fifteen Club  men were gathered in, and all are  held_at_the_liotel.__MissJ_McLeod,  one of the patients, 'was yesterday  reported as progressing favorably,  but the medical men hold out very  little.hope for the* recovery of the  infant sufferer, who died- during  yesterday afternoon. There are still a  couple of suspects at large. It is  believed they have left town. The'  only cases of diphtheria in Nelson  are the two, in question, and- the  prompt action taken in this instance  will, it is hoped, prevent the spread  of the' disease.: ��� The suspects have  been removed -to a house in the  east end of. Baker street.  Poisoned a Client.  London, M^rch 18.���The Vienna  correspondent-of the Daily Express  says: A prominent, banker- of  Vienna, Albert Vogt, was arrested  Saturday a% the office of the Gale  Manufacturing Company, American  machine makers, whose representative he was, on the'eharge of murdering by poison an aged client  named Laubiiii whose body he had  cremated, after ��� inducing him .to  make a will whereby Vpgt- obtained $12,000. Other dispatches  from Vienna say that Vogt was  formerly connected with a New  York newspaper and Vonce  raced with ;a liner across  the Atlantic in a yacht with  the proprietor : of the paper in  question. Laubin,it appears, was  a Russian Jew, a: miser and a  drunkard, and died in Vienna last  April. ......-'      ���' ,-  Canadians Won the Day.
