Mineral Production of British Columbia in 1900
Mineral Production of Kooteqay it\ 1800
OF £30,928.
Ore Bodies Increase in Extent as Development Progresses—Slocan Lake
Properties Make Good Showing,
The report which went before the
shareholders of the Ymir Gold
Mines at their meeting on the 25th
ultimo was pleasant reading. It
covered the company's operations
for the year 1900, during which
period the company, doubled its
stamp capacity by the addition> of
a 40-stamp battery, and defrayed
the entire expense of the same out
of the year's profits. Owing to unavoidable delays, however, the end
of August was reached before the
eighty stamps were dropping. With
respect to the financial results of
the year the directors report that
after writing off £5(505 for development, depreciation, interest on loan
raised for new plant, and charging
the whole of the administration
and other charges consequent upon
.the additional machinery, including
extensive repairs to the old battery,
a net profit of £30.928 remains,
which, added to the £10,031 brought
forward, makes £40,959.
Concerning the development of
.the Ymir property the report says:
At the end of the year the Ymii
shaft had reached a depth of 258
feet below No. 3 level, or about 050
feet, below the  surface.    Crosscuts
...were made on the fourth andnfifrib
levels, where the width and value
of the vein has proved to be well
maintained. At this date also the
10,00.-foot adit level had penetrated
the hill 506 feet and is advancing
at the  rate of   125 feet,per month,
".and should "reacn. "the vein by the
,end..of-.the current ,year, some four
^months beforeit is pos«ibfe*ro*W'6»,k'
out the reserves above No. 3.Jevel.
ThB;vein above No. 3 level is reported tobe wider than originally
calculated, thus increasing the estimate of pre reserves.
The' question of applying the
cyanide process for the treatment
of the mill tailings has been considered,' and tests have been made
with satisfactory results, and a
small plant for treating ten tons
daily should now be in operation.
The option held upon the adjoining Alma group of claims has not
been exercised, and that property
has, therefore, reverted to the London and British Columbia Gold-
fields, Limited.
Paul Johnson's New Record.
Last week's record at the Green-
On Monday last 402 . tons of ore
were treated in 24 hours or 21 tons
more than that of the record-breaking day last week. For the week
ending Monday, the world's record
for a 300-ton furnace was also
broken, the total tons of ore treated
being 2700 tons in seven days. The
best record made at Grand Forks
for one week was 2100 tons,,
although the furnace* there is 10
inches longer and two inches wider
than at .the Greenwood smelter.
During the past week the Emily
Edith mine, near Silverton, sent
forward a car of ore to the Nelson
smelter. Reports from the property say that a large amount of
ore has been blocked out, and the
ore body encountered in the No. 4
tunnel. This strike is said to justify
tlie erection of a concentrator.
The bad state of the road has
shut oif shipments from the Hewett
property. The Silvertonian says
the company's ore house and all
available space is piled high with
ore ready sacked for shipment. The
miners are all employed on development and no further stoping will be
doue until better shipping facilities
are afforded.
For the first three months of the
current year the mines of Phoenix
camp shipped to the Granby smelter 54,618 cons of ore, or something
over 600 tons per day. The tonnage for the three months, was:
January, 18,050 tons; February, 17,-
36J tons; March. 19.208 tons.
It is reported from the Slocan
that the Slocan Star will resume
operations on a large scale today,
when tlio total force will -reach 110
men. Extensive and regular shipments are expected from tne Star
during the remainder of the year.
Terrible Effects of Famine.
London,* April 7.—The depopulation of India through famine and
cholera is assuming alarming proportions. The latest advices from
Simla say the census returns of the
central provinces show a decrease
of over a million since 1891, when an
increase of a million and a half
might have been expected. It is
estimated that five millions have
died in India since 1896 from causes
directly due to the. famine. In
western India things are even
worse. The Oodipoor state returns
show a decrease of 840,000, or forty-
five per cent of population, and the
state of Bsopaul shows a 'decrease
of 12,000, and so on. In Bombay
city the population has diminished
by 50,000. The localities which
escaped the plague show a satisfactory though uncompensating increase. For instance,. Madras has
gained eight per cent over 1891.
Eesorted to Cannibalism.
London, April 8.—The Singapore
correspondent of the Daily Express
wires a ghastly story of cannibalism
at sea brought to Singapore by two
survivors of the Nova Scotian bark
Angola, wrecked six days' sail from
Manila, October 23rd last. The correspondent says: "The survivors—
Johnson, a Swede, and -Marticornu,
a Spaniard—assert that the Angola
struck' a reef. Two rafts were
built. The smaller, bearing five
men, disappeared, while the latter
with 12 men drifted for 40 days. The
men ate barnacles and seaweeds and
finally their boots. On the twenty-
fifth day two became insane and
killed themselves. On the twenty-
sixth a Frenchman killed the mate
and drank his blood and tried to
eat his brains, but was 'prevented by the others. Next;',dj*y
the Frenchman was killed whilc^at-
tempting to murder the captain.
The survivqEsll3yj^..w'ho*n were in,-
Cannibalism .-continued -until only
Johnnsen and Marticornu remained.
On the forty-second day the raft
stranded on Subi or Flat island,In.

Borneo. Johnnsen ahd..Marticor.iu
were awfully emaciated. "Friendly
Malays sent them by junk to Singapore.
Railroad Rumors.
Vancouver, April 7.—[Special to
The Tribune.]—A special from Victoria states that it is reported that
before Robert Jaffray left for the
east he consented to having provisions incorporated in the Crow's
Nest Rail way charter to the effect
that the British Columbia smelters
would have first claim on the output of the Crow's Nest Coal Company^ jcoke_ovensfor^all-tlme^atk

As a consequence of this concession
all opposition tb the .bill has been
withdrawn.   :      ■

E. C. Pearson, general superintendent of the Pacific division of
the Northern Pacific railroad, was

officials. It was stated semiofficially that if a bonus is granted

China and the Powers.;7
London, April 8.—The Pekin correspondent. of the Morning Post,
wiring Saturday says : The French
are still opposed by the" Chinese
near Hai Lui, but are careful to
avoid a conflict by which an advance would be anticipated by the
Germans, whose patrols are thirty
miles within the province of Shan
Si and can reach Tai Yuen Fu at
any moment. At Ching Ting Fu
the French intercepted a letter from
Li Hung Chang to the governor of
Shan Si, complaining that tbe
Manchurian convention must
be signed because the European
powers are willing to sit down as
usual to watch Russia devour
China. It is asserted on good
authority that Russia is willing to
give Japan a free hand in Korea
with a view to preventing her from
assuming a hoa-tile attitude.
Kitchener's Operations in South Africa
While Not Particularly Brilliant
Are Thorough—Notes.
New York, April 7.—The London
correspondent   of   the New   York
Tribune, IsaacN. Ford, sends the following dispatch dated 12 a.m.: The
trend of events in the far east is
distinctly pacific. With the punishment reduced a number of Chinese
officials will meet the demands of
the powers and the indemnity question   will be   worked   out'.■ by sir
Robert   Hart  more speedily than
has recently seemed possible.     The
Yang Tse viceroys who are how in
control of the Chinese government
are anxious to hasten the settlement of all outstanding questions
with the powers and remove every
pretext for the continuance of foreign occupation.   Earl Li, with his
secret understanding with Russia,
was the marplot so far as the concert was concerned. . Now that he
has been discredited and set aside
better progress may be expected in
the adjustment of the various questions in which the powers are interested.
The powers are bent upon getting rid of the foreign troops as
soon as possible' and they are eager
to recall their* legions and collect
their claims igvSdamages. Weeks
and perhaps month's of delay may
intervene, but there, is a hopeful
feeling among those watching Chinese affairs closely that the process
of diplomacy will be quickened and
a speedy settlement reached..

Narrow Escape of the Remaining Members of the Team, Who Cleared
Out, Just,in Time.
Affairs in South; Africa.
South African operations are followed with difficulty owing to the
meagerness of the dispatches.
There are four districts in.which
hostilities are in progress. General
French has virtually cleared the
eastern Transvaal and broken up
the Boer commandoes. Plummer is
advancing, northward along the
railway from Pretoria and meeting
which have been pursuing Dewet
turned at the Vaal river, having
been thrown off the scent, for there
is no authentic information respecting his movements since Kritzenger
arid other Boer leaders have hot succeeded in crossing the Orange. General Kitchener has no opportunity
for brilliant strategy, but he is doing his work, with scientific thoroughness and. slowly wearing out
the resources of Boer endurance.
. Mr. Kruger'9'comments on British
exaggeration of the details of the
conflict are read here with grim
amusement. A campaign which
hag employed:275,000 troops and re-,
quired reinforcements of over 40,-;
000 men siri'oeltEe opening of the
year, takes up barely a quarter of a
column in the daily papers.. Petty
skirmishes pass without observation. The British press instead of
frankly admitting that this great
army is employed in running. ;to
earth a few foxes who are doubling
on their trails and disappearing in
the vast stretch of veldt, "has persistently'exaggerated - the fighting
resources of the Boers.
Miscellaneous Matters,
Lord Salisbury, accompanied by
his daughter, started yesterday for
Beaulieu. The cabinet makers have
suspended activities until budget
Russell Vanun's "Nicandra" at
the Avenue theatre last night
proved to be a singular compound
of Egyptian mysticism and roaring
farce. A snake in a box was transformed into a beautiful woman,
with magical power of making men

and creating topsy turvy in a sentimental    household.     Mrs.- Brown

rest:of the team, had gone over to
Fort 'Steele for the day, and not

that their companions in the fray-
were detained in the hotel. They
promptly proceeded: to serenade
the unfortunate ones,.who from the
balcony of the disease-stricken hotel
enjoyed a series of athletic sports
gotten up for their especial edification.
Mason, Seatle, Nase and Stilwell
returned to Nelson Saturday night,'
leaving Holmes, Winters and Hodge,
with the five ..suspects, behind.
.Hodge came back yesterday after-
j noon by the Moyie, but was not
-allowed to land with.the rest of the
passengers. He had a ctean bill of
health, and although5direct from
Cranbrook, he proved :that he had
not been in the Cosmopolitan. However, he was marched up town by
chief Jarvis, and -with .the rest of
the team who returned on'Saturday, was treated;to a disinfecting
bath and a change of clothing 'before being allowed at large:   v
Holmes and.Winters remained at
Cranbrook, but .fortunately they
had not been registered; at the Cosmopolitan. They are. expected
home today, and if they cannot
show a clean bill of health will be
subjected to similar precautionary
treatment as that accorded the
members of the team now in Nelson. In the case of those detained,
it is probable that the quarantine
will last for sixteen days. .The man
down with smallpox is said to be
one who was vaccinated a couple of
weeks ago. But on Friday he developed suspicious symptoms, which
next day were diagnosed as smallpox.
Berlin, April 7.—Careful investigation at Potsdam today regarding
the circumstances in which emperor
William delivered his latest address
developed the information that
during a review last" Tuesday" (not
Friday as originally cabled) of a
number of military bodies belonging to the Potsdam garrison, including the First regiment of Foot-
guards, extraordinary precautions'
were taken to prevent any reporter
of the press or civilian obtaining
'knowledge of his majesty's remarks,
which were spoken' in the Lust-
garten adjoining the royal' castle.
From persons who were present it'
was learned that the kaiser spoke
substantially as follows :
"A hand from out the people was
recently raised against me to my
intense sorrow. Evidently serious
times are coming which, "will try
our mettle. I know that the army
is true to its traditions and to the
solemn oath it has taken. I know
it will remain steadfast and faithful to me. My-conviction is especially, stronglregarding the guardsand

, New York, April 7.—A London
dispatch printed hero this forenoon
says there is, some uneasiness in
European capitals over the mental
condition of emperor William of
Germany. The dispatch adds: The
Spectator today, discussing the subject, says: "There are actually
whispers of a regencyjn orderthat
special commissioner of the Unirpr
States engaged in conducting the
peace negotiations, made no reference to tho alleged refusal .of the
Russians to receive official 'run
municutions from the Chinese commissioners. As Mr. Rockhill is in a
position to know promptly what
develops between the ministers and
the peace commissioners, it is believed ho would be prompt to report a step of such far-reaching importance as the dispatch of Mr.
Squire would indicate.
At the Russian embassy no information on the subject was .obtainable tonight. It was said there that
no com muni cation had come' to the

Text of Mr. Justice Trving'g Decision in
Favor of the Plaintiff—Scores
Defendant Severely. *
"the emperor might enjoy a long
term of tranquility in which to recuperate. We do not see grounds
for believing- any rumor of the
kind. - There is little doubt, however, that public confidence in him
is shaken, and there is some reason
to apprehend that he may try to
re-establish it by some act which
would Hardly be one of legislation.
The kaiser's mood is altogether
strange. Its natural outcome
would be some great action taken
in full reliance on providence. The
Revue Medical of Paris says the
kaiser is suffering from nervous disease caused by overwork, but due
in reality to constitutional causes.
The pains in the ears from( which
he has suffered frequently are much
worse and have been accompanied
by seusous. discharge. His physicians are uneasy."
Ambiguous Reports.
Washington, April 7.-^6 administration is perplexed' over a
cable despatch received yesterday
from Mr. Squires, now in charge of
the American legation in Pekin.
This despatch, according to the publication today, said that the "Russian minister refuses to receive official communications from Chinese
commissioners" which carried the
information that diplomatic relations between the two countries interested would be broken off. The
officials are very reluctant about
the matter and decline to affirm or
deny whether it is correctly stated.
They will go only so far as to admit
the receipt of a despatch whose
purport was not clearly understood,
for which reason it is not given to
the press for publication.
Anent Rice Murder.
New York, April 7—Lawyer Albert T. Patrick, who is charged with
the murder of millionaire' William
Marsh Rice, made a xiMtrmetit tonight concerning the case, the first
time since his arrest. He said:
"Jones never killt-d Mr. Rice tl d
he done so, he never would have'
testified to it, H-.pi-n»ll y'»i- ih- ais-
trict attorney has promised him no
immunity, nor would his counsel,
even though privileged by captain
Baker, permit him to do so.j His
confidence is due to the fact that it
is an established' fact" that W. M.
Rice at'the'age of 4o died of heart
failure, as __did his , brother,,- F. A.

the 1900 will is their already demonstrated ability to control the district attorney's office; that is to
say, that portion presided over by
Osborne, over which there seems to
be no administrative supervision.
"So far the tactics employed
against mo have been the giving
out by Mr. Osborne continually of
statements known by him to be
false in order to cause the public to
prejudge me guilty so ns to justify
false imprisonment and to prevent
a fair trial, the wrongful imprisonment of myself and tho hounding
by detectives of those' who appear
to favor me, the abuse of the process of the courts by wrongfully
sub'penaing in the name of the
court persons to personally appear
before him and submit to examination in his office.
"The use, under the guise of witnesses, of professional baud writing

all in the same line. Jones sw.oro

evidence   required  to' establish  -;a
case of thiskind." I have  not lost w
sight of that, and it is that which'-',
makes the case a difficult one  to',/
deal with. ..
"In considering the facts of tLJsV--
case, I started with the assumption /'
-that the defendant was an honest 7..-
ma'n,   and   that   it   was   for   the • 1
plaintiff to prove his case of fraud^
on the part of the  plaintiff up to .
the hilt.    I find that the defendant, s
in his attempt to displace the caie
made by  the  plaintiff has  shown   .
that he was guilty of a dishonorable
act   in   the   matter of the Black
Prince,  that he was guilty   of   a
second act of the same character in    .
accepting a grub-stake from Perks,
while his retainer by tbe  plaintiff
known to the plaintiff he postponed
a prospecting tiip and came to Nelson   and   recorded   this  claim for
Bennett, that when he comes into
court he swears  that, the plaintiff
wrote him a letter which was never
written ;    that   following    up  the
same line he and Bennett swear to
a     conversation    that     did    not
take     place,       and      his      chief
defence    in     the   production    of
certain "   I agreements       prepared
by a solicitor   under   instructions
from   himself    and   Bennett—prepared with such a scrupulous exactness that they in themselves excited suspicion—I find that the accounts which  would  establish the
truth of the case one way or the
other have  heen destroyed by Billings, for I do not believe his statement on   oath   that he never kept
them.- I believe that when he wrote
he was keeping them  he was writing the truth.
"I can only draw the inference
that every 'business man would
draw, viz: that the defendant used
the plaintiff's money for recording
this claim, and the one-quarter interest was received by him on the
terms indicated in the letter of July
9th, and that the plaintiff is entitled to a share in that interest.
"As to the fourth claim the defendant was present and assisted
Bennett at the location, and I do
not believe his statement that he
refu-ed to have an interest. 1
therefore give judgement for the
plaintiff as to the^e four claims
with costs."

The salmon canners of the Fraser
river are anxious to solve the labor
'•question, attached to the. taking of
salmon during the few weeks of
the salmon run, by the building of
traps in which the salmon would
catch themselves without the aid of
fishermen?" -
Ninety more Japs have applied
for naturalization at Vancouver.
When legal formalities are gone
through with they will be able to
supplant ninety.white fishermen oh

provincial election.
THE members of the Greenwood
city council are endeavoring to
legislate the Chinese out of their
city. They have made it an infraction of the Health Bylaw for anyone to sprinkle clothes by spraying
water from the mouth, as is the
fashion of Chinese, and have put a
clause in their Sunday- Observance
Bylaw prohibiting'laundries from
gathering up or, delivering clothes
on. Sunday.
OuTof the fight which was made
against the ,scheming;.of the officers
of the Crow's NestPass Coal Company and James J. Hill, there
promises to come more real benefit'
to British Columbia;than has resulted from all the agitation of the
" past ten years for reform in railway legislation. This in itself will
repay those who in the first instance
forced the issue between the welfare of the province and the inordinate greed of non-resident speculators, ./the' promoters of the
Crow's" Nest' Southern railway
scheme made a determined and
well-organized assault upon the
government and legislature of the
province to secure without restrictions of any kind a railway charter
whieh would enable them to dictate the   terms   upon   which   the
development   of  the   mining   and
smelting industry of this province
should proceed.    So carefully were
their plans laid,  that when  terms
were first mooted, the   promoters
considered      themselves       strong
enough to attempt a bluff upon the
government   and   the    legislature.
They   must   have    their    railway
charter   without   terms,   or    they
would have none of it.    But their
bluff   was   called.     They   will   be
given a charter, but not the charter
they wished.    It will be a purely
railway charter.     One  which will
enable   the    government    of    the
province to fix freight and passenger rates, and  at   the same time
protect   the   fuel   supply   of   the
Kootenay and Yale smelters to the
utmost   extent./'And   the   report
comes from Vancouver that Robert
J-tffray  of the coal company has
decided to accept the   conditions.
The difference between what the
promoters   of   the    Crow's    Nest
Southern   railway demanded, and
what the legislature has signified
its intention of granting them, represents   what the   province gains
through the greatest railway" fight
in its history. ,
In the course of a recent speech
at Vancouver, where he was boosting for James J. Hill's V., V. & E.
railway scheme, Smith Curtis expressed regret that the legislature
was not permitted to discuss Mr.
Houston's resolution in favor of
government construction and ownership of the Crow's Nest Southern
railway. Had the resolution been
admitted Mr. Curtis says the opposition would have placed every
member of the legislature on record
on the question, a proceeding whicli
so far as the members of the opposition are concerned does, not appear to be necessary.
In his testimony before the Chinese and Japanese commission the
other day Joseph-Hunter, M. P. P.,
gave the reason why in the early
days in Cariboo Canadians were so
much objected to by other miners,
and why they were generally
dubbed North American.Chinamen.
According to Mr. Hunter all' this
ill feeling was entirely due to. the
fact that the Canadians showed
themselves to be superior workmen,
as in the handling of an axe and
the timbering of mines they easily
outclassed all others in the district.
The Trail Creek News expresses
the opinion that the presence of J.
Roderick Robertson at Ottawa will
not assist the movement which has
for its object the bonusing of a refinery for the'lead ores of the Slo-
can.   The News  suggestsjjthat J.
Roderick is endeaving to get a
string on any subsidy, so that'it
will go to ihe silver-lead 'miners instead of; to the . smelters and refineries,''which would leave • British
Columbia smelters still under, the
thumb of the United States lead
and smelter trust.
F. J; Finucane of the Greenwood
and Ptaoenix Tramway Company is
endeavoring to secure a subsidy of
$50,000 instead of guaranteed interest upon $100,000 for a number of
years. If Greenwood meets the
company's offer it will commence
work on the tramway within thirty
days from the passage of the bylaw
and complete the same within one
year. -.'•':.-
The Kootenay Mail says superintendent Duchesnay of the Mountain

Safeguard Against  Tuberculosis.
Washington, April 7.—As a result of negotiations between secretary of agriculture Wilson and the
Canadian minister of agriculture,
an agi eement has been reached between the two administrations by
whieh Canada is to have a first
class veterinary surgeon stationed
in England to test for tuberculosis
in British cattle shipped to this
country via Canada. Tlie Canadian
administration wanted cattle to be
admitted from Canada without
tests by American experts. The
department at Washington would
not agre to this. Secretary
Wilson said, however, that if
Canada would send to England au
agent who would have sufficient
expert knowledge of the subject,
the;United States would admit cattle upon his certificate that the cat-,,
tie had been tested and found free
of tuberculosis. This was agreed
to by the Canadian minister. It is
officially explained that 10 per cent
of the livestock in the Uuited States
and about 40 per cent in Great
Britain are afflicted with tuberculosis. The cattle on the continent
of Europe are so diseased that this
government will not permit the admission of any animals from there.

alleged that Michael Connelly, another uncle, and partner of the deceased in the contracting business,
refuses to recognize the rights of.

valuable portions of the estate.
