'-L'ii-hLi  HUDSON'S BIT  STOBES  BAKER STREET        NELSON  *���������!������ -' ��� ��� ������      "��� ��� '  Charles Love has been arrested  in Toronto upon the. charge of stealing a registered letter containing  $2. Love is a married man with a  family, and handled registered mail  in Toronto for the princely salary  of $30 per month. This is one effect of starving a service to ensure  a surplus.  A movement is on foot, in the  East to do away with lawyer's fees  and oblige lawyers to tender for  work for a lump sum in the same  ' way" as-the plumber or painter ten-  der for their work. This would enable people who" hire lawyers to  know where they are at, and if. a  guarantee clause were added, so  that the lawyer would be obliged to  do what he promises to do beforehand, it would be so much better.  It is reported from Victoria that  the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, in consideration of" an extension being given for the completion  - of its Lardeau branch, has agreed  to complete the line connecting  Trdut lake and' Kootenay lake  "before ' January next. This will  mean the diversion of the entire  Lardeau trade from Revelstoke to  Nelson, as everything going into  the district will enter from the  southern end.  Lawyer McPhillips of Victoria  'is making himself solid with the  Labor- party.. He gave evidence  before, tbp . Chinese and Japanese  immigration commission on Saturday J "and came-out as strong as the  most-ardentlabor man could wish.  He'saiid he believed in restricting  jbpth Chinese and . Japanese, and  that "he* considered it the duty of  the government of Canada to protect Canadians from ruinous competition whether it came from  Chinese or Japanese. He admitted  that the Japanese-were a superior  people to the Chinese, but maintained that the less . intercourse  Canada had wich the Japanese or  ,Tapan the better it would be for  Canada. In cross-examination he  .said Canada's interests should be  the first consideration in dealing  with the question of Chinese and  Japanese immigration, and he considered the longer the matter was  delayed the more difficult would a  8 uisfactory solution of the problem  become, ���  Ik that Crow's Nest Southern  railway bill is the most innocent  piece of legislation which the Hill  boosters would have the people believe, it is odd that it should now  be hung up for several days at Victoria and Ottawa. Will the boosters  now claim that they are right and  that both the provincial and  Dominion parliaments are wrong?  What an arch-traitor attorney-  general Eberts must be to suggest,  that the provincial government can  more safely be trusted to look after  the future welfare of the mining  and smelting .industry of British  Columbia, than can the officers of  the Crows Nest Pass Coal Company  and their American allies in the  railway and smelter trusts .-'  Now that the owners of the  Nelson opera house have been  served. with notice to make such  alterations to their building as will  render it less dangerous to patrons  in case of fire, the members of the  City Council should insist upon full  compliance with the terms of the by-  law*inder which theaters are licensed. If the owners of the building fail  to meet the requirements the council  should withold the necessary  license.  Independent - newspapers, in  summing up the testimony brought  out during the Cook investigation  by the senate committee, appear" to  agree that the investigation will be  barren of results. It is not now  suggested that Herman -H."Cook  was not led to believe that he could  secure a senatorship for $10,000, but  it is denied that sir Richard Cart-  wright or any responsible member  of the Liberal party made any such'  offer. Mr., Cook swears positively  that sir Richard knew'and approved  of the senate deal, but sir Richard  -    ' -A   -  gives a point blank denial; and the  man .who could clear- up .the matter  in dispute is dead.        --"--.  The policy of the provincial government with respect tothe Crow's.  Nest Southern railway charter was'  announced    yesterday,'   when  "attorney-general Eberts gave notice  of    two    important    amendments  which  he proposes  to add tothe  railway   bill   in  committee:     The  first of these provides, for government   control, of    the   company's  freight,    and    -passenger     rates,  and   the     second     prohibits    the  railway   company   from     moving  coal    or    coke - from ', the    East  Kootenay collieries untilTthe  de^  raands of the smelters  in Yale and  Kootenay   have   been met to the  satisfaction    of     the    lieutenant-  governor-in-council.    These amendments will put the professed  good  faith of the Crow's Nest Southern the test.   They have  proclaimed all along that they were  -anxious   to    guarantee    the    fuel  supply   of   the - British   Columbia  smelters and that they   only   intended   to   export   their    surplus.  The amendment of   the attorney-  general simply makes it obligatory  upon   the   promoters to do   what  they profess their willingness to do.  This will safeguard the interests of  the   province without   interfering  with the open-door railway policy  of which some have become so fond  bf   late.     The   promoters   cannot  complain.     If they   considered it  necessary to give promises as tothe  consideration they would show the  smelting industry of tbis province,  they have no reasonable ground for  complaint     when   the    provincial  legislature, with an even  greater  interest in the provincial industry,  gives   their promises  the force of  law.    Incorporated into the charter  the promises will mean something.  In a measure it will make the government   of    the     province    the  custodian of the welfare of its mining and smelting industry, instead  of the Toronto philanthropists and  their United   States allies ' in the  railway and smelter trust.    This is  as it should be.  Drumlummon Abandoned.  At the recent meeting of the Montana Mining Company, Limited, in  London, the stockholders approved  the decision of the directors to give  np development work and to make  no further attempt to discover new  ore bodies. Woik at the company's  mill at Marysville will be confined  ���as has been recently���to cyanid-  ing the tailings. This will mean thu  practical abandonment of the Drumlummon mine, which has yielded so  much in its time. This action of  the directors seems to be justified,  however, by the uncertainty of any  further developments and the failure of prospecting work during the  past two years. The company has  au accumulated reserve fund of  $300,000 and proposes to buy a new  property���where, it has not yet  decided.  A Telephone Paper.  A "telephone journal," or system  of news distribution by  telephone,  exists in Budapest, Hungary.    The  German paper Die Reform keeps its  subscribers in touch with the news  by telephone, items of interest be-,  ing spoken from  the central oflice  to each subscriber from S a.m. to 11  p.m.    Each communication  comes  on the hour, except the news of the  money   -market    and   parliame nt,  which are   sent every half hour.  The subscription price is 75 cents a  month,  and the  subscriber  is not  bound for more than four  months;  he pays nothing extra for receivers  or lines.    The  receiving  apparatus  is so arranged that two persons can  listen at once, and communications  are announced by a ��� pre-arranged  bell  signal.    The  circuit,  which is  limited to the city of, bus  507   miles   of   line?.    The   present  number   of    subscribers    is   about  7000.   Trials have been mad*1, with  good results, looking   to the extension of the system to the neighbor-'  ing towns of Szegedin and Arad.  Miners Killed.

It was,  discovered   at    Lausanne    ten   or  ' twelve years ago by a gentleman  [known as   Professor   Nicole, then  .'"supposed to be a teacher at one of  |!the     German     universities.     The  painting represented   a Madonna,'  i .ind Herr Nicole announced that it  J was a genuine Raphael.'    The news  [was bruited abroad,  and from all  luarters artists and collectors flocked to Lausanne to see the painting,  i which" Nicole- now,  entitled "The  'Virgin   of the Incarnation."   The  news   tiave'ed    to   America    and  reached'the ears of the late W. H.  , Vanderbilt.   Ho was so' impressed  ���" by it that he determined to purch-  ! xae the  painting, and therefore  he  at   once instructed   his   European  agent' to   offer    Professor    Nicole  $300,000 for it.   The-bargain .was  about to be concluded when Mr.  [Vanderbilt died.    Nicole died not  I long afterward.    It  was then dis-  , covered that he had borrowed $12-  000 from a banker and had given  [ him the security.  His widow paid interest to the  I banker regularly,"but recently she  I was unable to do so, and it was  [agreed that the painting.should be  |Vold at public auction. The sale  [was announced and many connois-  :eurs hastened to Berlin. At the  hpening of the sale   the auctioneer  1 mnoimced that   the .vendor, .could,  jnot guarantee the   authenticity "of  Lhe'   painting..     He added,''  however, that.-it  was   "generally   bs-  ['ieved" tobe   a   genuine   Raphael.  IThe first bid was only 75 cents, and  [Prom that the bidding slowly went  ] ip to $50.   The banker who had  * oaned   $12,000   on    the   painting  I thought to enliven matters by bidding ,$250.  one bid   higher.  j He kept on bidding against himself  Mntil he reeached the sum of $1500  J at which figure the"_painting was  {knocked down to him. 'Although  (disconsolate at the thought that he  Iliad loaned $12,000 on such a trumpery article, he   consoled   himself  vith the knowledge that Mr. Van-  jlerbilt, if he had not died, would  jhave lost $300,000 jn the samo way.  .After the sale the true history of  j professor Nicole's life " became  [known, and evidently for the first  J time.' He was, it is said, not a  [German, but a Frenchman, being a  native of-Isigny, and his original,  [vocation was that of ^a curate.  jFrom-Ms boyhood Iib had a passion  [for painting, and his great delight  . sya.4 fcp discover old art works and  I attribute them to .well-known mas-  jters, Raphael being' his favorite.  [His zeal in following tbislquestion-  Jable pursuit finally involved him in  trouble with the ecclesiastical  I uithorities, as a result of which he  .eft the church and retired to  where he lived on a  Ho.w many persons,  [he duped by means of his-alleged  Irnastgrpieces will never be 1 known,  tout nS never came nearer to making  la fortune than when he received  [his offer from Mr. Vanderbilt.

It was 12 years ago, iu a  cathedral at Belgrade, Natalie, the  daughter of a millionaire colonel in  Russia, had married Milan, the king  whose' wasted life is the great  tragedy of Servian politics. It was  a life that was barely worth the  living, and the Russian colonel's  daughter soon knew it. King Milan squandered her -millions, betrayed the love she lavished on him*  and heaped neglect on insult, insult on neglect. Then came the  Sunday at the cathedral. It was  Easter, and as the congregation  left the sanctuary the court passed  out in front bf the royal pair, the  men to be kissed by the- king and  the women by the queen. , There  came a woman queen Natalie would  not deign to notice. The procession  paused and a painful silence filled  the place. The ' queen, young and  beautiful, gazed on the altar.  Every eye was on her, but she  stood still in her majesty. Milan  turned towards her, "Kiss Madame   ,'���' he said,  and   the  queen,  gazing on the altar still, said." No."  Milan took hold of her,arm.   " Kiss  Madame ," he said again in a  tone louder than before, and again,  her eyes still turned away, queen  Natalie said "No." . It was a. terrible moment for those who lived  in it. A king raised his hand to  strike a queen; there are those who  say he would have strangled her.  Confusion reigned in the cathedral,  and when quiet came again queen  Natalie was gone. By an. unjust  decree the king dissolved the union  aud the queen went' to live at  Wiesbaden, her little son with her  ���the son who has now decreed that  his. mother shall not enter his  dominions.  , Milan is dead and the child Queen  Natalie bore him reigns in his stead,  the enemy of his mother as his  father was. And Natalie, still  beautiful, though with the mask of  tragedy on her face���still in the  prime of womanhood, though she  has passed through long years of  sorrow, lives on alone, a pathetic-  figure whom to see is to love, but  through whose life love has shot its  poisoned arrow.  FALLS   ELECTRICALLY LIGHTED.  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker  c"       Street.  J. M. LAY, Manager.  shot over the fall every one who  saw it gave an exclamation of  wondering surprise and were held  spellbound. The light was also  thrown on the rushing, tumbling  rapids above the falls and over  Goat Island. Down the gorge it  went, making the big ice mounds,  the monster stalagmites and stalactites look weird and magnified in  their intense whiteness. It was a  magnificent picture suddenly like^a  flash carved out of darkness. The  car was then run down to the  ravine station of the road, where  the light was shot on to the American fall illuminating it most  wonderfully. The result of this  test is this : The Michigan Central  will give an order to the General  Electric Company for four or five  of these latest developed marine  searchlights similar to the one  operated last week. ' The power to  operate the lights will ,be taken  from the Horseshoe falls, and the  fact that the falls are generating  the power with which they light  themselves will prove a novel, attractive feature.  Ward Bros.  REAL ESTATE AND  .   INSURANCE AGENTS  .Buffalo, March 80.���Illuminating Niagara Falls at night by a  gigantio^searchlight is to be one of  the attractions for visitors to the  Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo  this summer. This is made possible  by a secret test; made this week by  the General Electric. Company, of  Schenectady, N.Y. Por seven years  experiments have been made of the  problems"of_illumihatihg_tlie_falls7  but the necessary expense has been  an impediment in the way. The  General Electric Company has been  experimenting during this time  with searchlights, and they feel now  that they can succeed. This is  proved conclusively by the test  made from a box car at the Palls  View" station of the Michigan  Central on last Monday night. The  test was to have beeu a secret for  fear of failure.  The night was of the sort for a  most severe test of any searchlight.  It was dark and stormy. The  clouds hung heavy and there were  driving snowfiakes with a stiff gale  out of the west. An engine was attached to the car and it was quietly  run up to the Falls View station,  which overlooks the Horseshoe falls,  the upper Canadian rapids and the  gorge, with the American falls on  the left in the near distance. AU  trains were held on the eastbound  track of the road, and the engineer  was'given orders to have plenty of  steam on, for there was a peculiar  little engine iu the box car which  which was to do wonders. Six experts, from the General Electric  Company were in charge of the  apparatus, which, briefly, consisted  of an up-to-date powerful marine  searchlight. The little engine which  operated the generator was run by  steam from the locomotive. At a  signal the great eye of the searchlight was focussed on the brink of  the Horseshoe, and in an instant a  stream of pure white light, strong  and penetrating,'shot out of the  door of the car, completely illuminating the thundering cataract.  The effect oh the great ice and  snow formations was amazing and  electrifying.   When the first gleam  Agents for J. & J.

Expensive Litigation,  A   telegram   from Victoria was'  yesterday received by R.  M. Mac-:  donald   "announcing    that  - judge'  Irving had handed down his decision;  in the case of McLaren vs. Billings.  This was the action which occupied  the attention of the supreme court,  here for five days during the last  sitting.. Plaintiff sued on a grubstake agreement to recover a sum  of $30,000 on the sale of the Yellow-  atone mine, at Ymir, and an interest  in" other   properties said to have  been located during   the term  of  the. agreement.   The defence prac  tically was that the Yellowstone  was staked off in the name of the  defendant, but' that he derived no  beneficial interest by the location  subsequent to its purchase by the  operating company. A great deal  of interest was manifested- in the  proceedings, as an important point  was involved. ' A.-.H. McNeill, K.O.,  and R. M. Macdonald appeared for  the plaintiff, who was a couple of  days on the witness stand, and E.  P. Davis, K.C., and A. Johnson for  the defendant.���= 1���'- ���������������������  - ���  Mining Records.  The following mining' transactions were recorded yeBterday:  Certificates of work to W.

Judge Forin announced in chambers yesterday that he was about  to go east for a time to settle up the  estate of his deceased father and  that during his absence his brother,  P. McL. Forin of Rossland, would  act in his place. There is a big  volume nf business to be attended  to, so that the Rossland barrister  will have a busy time of iV.  In Chambers.  Judge Forin, in chambers, yesterday, heard a number of applications  on behalf of the creditors of the  Molly Gibson mine. The total  amount of claims against the property is considerable, but on behalf  of the company it was announced  that there were prospects of- an  amicable settlement, and tinder the  circumstances.and with?the'consent  of the interested parties, the matter  was adjourned so as to allow of  negotiations being prosecuted.  The New Fire' Team. .  . The team of horses purchased in  Spokane by Chief Lillie were put in  harness yesterday for the first time  in Nelson, and trotted out for a  little exercise over ground which  they will be called upon to cover in  their new role. Of course there was-  no lack of criticism.

The    fire department of "j  Spokane is sending to Anaconda for  horses,   being   unable   to  procure  them at home. .j  Pay Up.  The city clerk is sending out  notices tp all those who are liable  under the Trades and License bylaw, apprising thera that their  licenses are due on the 15th days of  January and July in each year, and  that unless the same be paid within  seven days from date of receipt of  said notice, proceedings will be  taken to enforce the provisions of  the bylaw. These .licenses will net  the city about $13,000 this year.  The Salvation Army.  Captain Mrs. Read,.superintendent of the women's social work of  the Salvation Army for. Canada,  Newfoundland and . northwest  America, delivered an address on  social work in the Salvation ! Arniy  barracks last evening. There was  a large gathering, of soldiers and  friends.

From Moyie,  F. J. S my the of the Moyie Leader  was in town yesterday. He reports  everything progressing favorably in  the camp made famous by the St.  Eugene mine. ' Last month was the  biggest run the St. Eugene concentrator has had, turning out as it  did over 3500 tons. The mine continues to employ 250 men and its  output is kept up to 100 tons per  day. However, there was a rumor  that less ore would be mined for  some,time owing to the prevailing  low price of silver. The company  are now shipping to Belgium,' the  ore being sacked on the ground and  forwarded via - Montreal.-; The  Aurora will soon resume operations.  The tunnel is at present in some 300  feet and shows three feet of clean  ore.' Some work'is also' being done  on the ,Society Girl. Mr. Smy the  says the'good people of Moyie are  preparing to celebrate the 24th of  May and will put, up suuh an excellent program that thousands s of  visitors wijl ,be attracted.  THE* MINERS' FEDERATION  .Officers Elected���Resolutions Adopted;  At yesterday's session of District  Association No.: 6, Western Federation of Miners, -the following  officers were elected : James Wilks,  president; Rupert Bulmer, vice-  president; and Alfred Parr, secret  tary-treasurer. The president is of  Nelson, the vice-president of Rossland, and the secretary-treasurer of  Ymir.  The matter of a government  bonus to the lead refiuing industry  was among the questions discussed  during the day, in connection  which .the following  "passed": v. '.,"..    ���;���'-'��� '7~~Ar ".'������'-r���ir  Whereas, the silver:lead mining  industry of British Columbia has  been seriously hampered by the  actions of the American smelting  trust in increasing their, charges  for treatment of bur ores and increasing their commissiofn . for the  disposition of our bullion; and,  whereas, this convention is ������'of .the  opinion that the establishment of a  refinery in Canada would greatly  stimulate . the production of silver-  lead ore, and materially contribute  to the promotion of the general,interests .of- the country ; and, whereas this convention is of the opinion  that it is absolutely essential tp the  proper protection of all. interescs  involved-that the proposed refinery  should be���established under such  conditions* as would preclude the  possibility of its absorption by the  smelter tr.ust at any future"' date;,  therefore,-be it resolved: that tliis  District^Asipibiation, No. .fa Western  Federation ''of. Miners, in annual  convention assembled,"declare that  in the judgment of this organization the true, solution of the refinery problem is the construction  and operation of a refinery by the  Dominion government of sufficient  capacity for the treatment of our  silver-lead ores, and that such refinery should be situated at some  central point in the mining districts  of this province.  CEN^S^KINBHsl^sNELSON  ENUMERATORS START ON THEIR  ***fe  t��*  t  WORK'MODAY.^  J-  :v%&t''  Ninety Miles of Ground to Be  Oyer'Within Two Weeks  ......'.* From Date.  Gone  with  resolution was  A. B. Buckworth, J. P., census  commissioner for the Nelson riding,  has started in on his. work, which  he hopes to complete, so far as the  population returns are concerned,  in about two weeks. The following  enumerators have been appointed  and start put this morning on their  rounds : ,...-.' ;   ;  Nelson���George Broadley, James  Bahnernian, C. P.'McRostie, George  Doyle, A. J. Curie and J. D. MeLeod.  Ymir7--J. A. Paul, E. W. Staple-  ford a-nd Alfred Parr.  Creston���A. O'Kell.  Nelson is divided into six district?.' .Ymir'' i�� made a separate  district and the rest of the territory  is .divided between three men.  Some idea of the work'may be  gained from the fact that there are  ten separate schedules to be filled  in and three specials. On schedule  No. 1, for instance, there are ho less  than 34 questions to be answered.  No. 2, relating to buildings,  churches," schools, etc., asks 37  questions, and soon throughout the  list. It is estimated that the enumerator will have to spend at least  half an hcSur with the head of a  family before he can get all the information which that individual  is supposed tb be in a position to  supply.  ���The census of Canada, unlike that  of other countries, aims at more  than a mere 'count of heads. It is  designed to be an unfailing record  as to the growth and prosperity of  the country;* aud gives details so  minute as to be a history in itself.  A glance,at-the tabulated forms  will show tlie population of any  particular district, whether it has  increa-ed or decreased within the  past-ten years, and if the former,  how the increase is accounted-for  ���whether by'the birth rate or by  iminigration. * If by immigration,  the nationality of the new-comers  is set down',"with their respective  ages,'occupation's, .etc." In agricultural districts the crop returns' are  given, area'* of'land'- under cultivation and such other information as  may be looked for.  "there can be little doubt that the  increase in' the - population and  wealth of British Columbia since  last cenus'-is considerable and - perhaps in no section of the province  will tliis 'increase be more conspicuous than in the "Kootenays.  What were hamlets 10 years ago are  in many cases flourishing, populous  cities today, while towns have  sprung up where there were but a  fewcabins.  Mr. Buokworth's district includes  some ninety square miles. It is  bounded on the north by the west  arm- of Kootenay lake; on the  south=by=the=ihternatiohaLboundary^  line, on the east by the divide between East? and West Kootenay,  and on the west by the Columbia  river. '    '."-.. :   '..'".' ":*. '  Theenumeratorshaye been drilled  ih their" work by the commissioner  and no trouble is anticipated. However, there will be a meeting after  the first coupleof days' work, when  they will compare notes.  Picnic at the Cemetery.  Tho Orientals differ so much from  the Occidentals'^ many particulars,  that one is seldom astonished at the  queer things the almond eyed  intruders do. Yesterday, for instance, three express wagons, laden  with Chinamen, roast pigt spring  chicken, pipes, ..san-souie, rice and  candies, might be observed driving  through Nelson. ; Some thought  they were going to a funeral, others  said a marriage feast was on the  tapis, but the majority-of. people  did not give a .second .thought to  tlie incident���they were only  Chinese. Later on hr-- the day the  merry party! returned, - minus the  roast pig, etc. Enquiring in Chinatown elicited the'"extraordinary information that the party in question had been but fpr a day's picnic.  The spot selected, was the cemetery,  or at least that portion of it in  which the remains of deceased  Chinamen are graciously allowed to  ���JTM ���  TELEPHONE 27  .ui'isoav: i- ,aoi  PAINTS, OILS^ND GLASS.  ; GARDEN  TOOLS;  REFRIGERATORS  Store,"Cofner'Baker and Josephine Sheet  RUBBER AND COTTON HOSE.

On the graves of their  departed brethren the picnic party  yesterday made merry. Here they  spread their cloth-and set their  feast, and indulged in all sorts of  frolic, interspersed with a game or  two of cards .and copious draughts  of the native beverage. Nor did  they forget the departed ones, for  to these they, left the choicest  morsels of the delicacies provided.  The Chinese believe in making  merry with the spirits of the faithful departed, so that-when they go  out for a day's enjoyment the  graveyard is their favorite rendezvous.
