C, MONDAY MORNING,  APRIL 22,  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  DAMAGE DONE BY STORM  THE    GREATEST    FLOOD    SINCE  THAT OF 1884      ,  !*."t -  People Abandon AU Kinds of Property in a Wild Rush  for  Personal Safety.  Pittsburg, April 21.���It has rained  almost incessantly throughout western Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio and  West Virginia since 4 o'clock Thursday afternoon, and as a result all  ��� the streams are beyond their, banks  and the greatest flood since 1884  is feared.' A flood swept down on  Carnegie and - the whole Chartiers  valley, six miles southwest of Pittsburg, during the night, such as was  never before known, llailroads are  washed out aud trains are caught  in the flood, unable to move either  way. Carnegie and the whole valley are in a panic, with business  and trafficof all kinds suspended,  while people are rushing to places  of safety and .seek to-save their  lives without caring for their prop-"  erty. The main street of Carnegie  as well as all the other streets are  under water and people, are going  about in skiffs.  Yesterday there were 22 feet of  water in the Alleghey river, and it  was rising more' than a foot an  hour. Predictions are now confidently made that the great flood of  1884 will be reacend before 24 hours.  Shortly after 11 o'clock the police  officials sent out a second warning  to every resident on the riverside  streets.- .In most of these the water  in the. sewers -has already reached  a high mark and is rapidly rising.  'The damage by the flood along  Pine street will'be the greatest in  i*ears. The stream is rising rapidly,  and the. meadows along its banks  are inundated!' A score of houses  in Glenshaw are flooded. Dehaven  is surrounded by a,raging ^torrent"  and the'bridges along^the creek-are ���  threatened. - A log jam has formed  against the 'Pittsburg & Western  railroad bridge, aud the structure  is unsafe for the passing of trains.  Pittsburg, April 21.���One of the  effects of tlie heavy rains here was  a landslide at 2 o'clock this morning  just beyond'Soho, which ' carried  the houses of Michael Gault and  Edward Collins down into the Ohio  road tracks. Mr. and Mrs. Gault  were thrown from their beds, but  escaped with a few slight injuries.  Oue Baltimore & Ohio track was  completely wrecked by a strike, and  the entire hill from Leweu street to  the Baltimore & Ohio tracks, a  distance of 300 feet, was slipping  and might go down at any time.  Pittsburg, April 21.���Pittsburg  and Allegheny tonight are slowly-  emerging from tho murky flood. At  -8_pr_mT_the���rivers~were���receding  nearly a foot an houi'. The highest  point at Davis island dam was 28.08  feet, which means 28 feet at the  junction of the Allegheny & Monon-  gahela railway. The water remained stationary until about 3  p. m., when it began to fall. Conservative estimates of the total  damage in this district is between  $2,000,000 and $3,000,000. Fifty  thousand workers aro suffering  from enforced idleness. While  there have been greater floods at  this point, there was never oue that  caused so much financial .loss.  Tho manufacturing plauts on the  rivor banks were An active  operation, most of them working  night and day, until the rising  water put out the fires and drove  the workers to higher ground. The  loss to the railroads entering Pittsburg, from floods, landslides,  wrecked bridges, heavy snow and  interference with traffic is roughly  estimated at $1,000,000. Big landslides occurred ou the Pittsburg &  Lake Erie and Baltimore & Ohio.  The slide at Soho was 150 feet long,  and it required 41 hours' work to  clear the track. At Skobo, between  Menaca and Aliquipa, the Lake  Erie suffered its most serious landslide. One hundred feet of the  west bound track was carried away  fifty feet down the steep bank, the  whole face of the bank sliding down  into the river.  Cleveland, Ohio, April 21.���The  fierce storm of wind and snow that  swept over this city aud northern  Ohio throughout yesterday and last  night is gradually subsiding. It was  followed tonight by a fog so dense  that it was almost impossible to see  from one side of the street to the  cither.     Trains   ou  practically all  the roads entering the city continue  to arrive from one to three hours  behind schedule time. This is  especially true in regard to lines  from the east. Traffic on the city  street cars continues to be badly  crippled all day as a result of a deep  snow and slush on the tracks.  Cincinnati, April 21.���The Ohio  river reached 45 feet tonight, and  will pass the danger line' of 50 feet  here before midnight. Reports  from up the river are of great distress, owing to the snow, flood and  cold weather. Rain and snow have  alternated here all day.  , Wheeling, April 21.���Two big  landslides were reported last night'  ou the Ohio River railroad below  here. One below Mountsville held  up two passenger trains" which  transferred passengers and passage.  The south-bound train returned to  Wheeling at midnight. Wheeling  creek ran out heavily) and at 2  o'clock a.m. many houses had been  entered at Elm Grove and' other  suburbs of Wheeling. The creek is  still raising.  Youngstown, Ohio, April 21.���  The greatest snow storm ever  known in this section has been raging for more than twenty-four  hours with no indications this  morning of a favorable-change in  the condition. Several car lines  have been tied up since night. Passenger trains are attempting to run  withxtwo locomotives on each train,  while freight trains are abandoned.  Fruit trees in orchards, beginning  to bud, are now broken down by,the  weight of the snow and will be a  total loss.  Cincinnati, April 21.���There has  been more alarm through the-Ohio  valley today on account of the  floods than at any other period  since February, 1884, when the Ohio  river reached its highest point of  71 feet and 9 inches. Most of the  inhabitants of the valley spent the  night in anticipation of the worst  flood ever known in the'valley, and  will not know until tomorrow that  the water has been falling at Pittsburg. Until this news reached the  people tonight it was thought the  record, of 1884 would be,broken.  The present floods are the .worst  : ever known so late in "the spring;'  The flood will do much "more damage, than it would have done one. or  two months ago. While the water  has begun to fall at Pittsburg, rain  aud snow have been falling heavily  last night and today and tonight  all along the Ohio valley. The danger line has already been reached  at points about Cincinnati, "and it  will be reached here tomorrow  morning. The merchants and manufacturers in the lower part of the  city have been working all day and  night preparing for the worst.  Accident at the Smelter.  A rather serious accident occurred  at the Hall Mines smelter yester;  day, which adds another patient to  the surgical ward of the Kootenay  Lake General Hospital. J. Fraleigh,  who was engaged about the ma-  ~chiriery"had"his"hand"cau"ght"inone_  of the beltsj and pulled into; a revolving wheel. The result was a  bad smashup of the arm. Fraleigh  was removed to the hospital, where"  his wounds were dressed, but they  are of so gerious a nature that it is  feared tbe limb will have to be amputated.  .   ..  Salvation Army Funeral.  The infant child of Mr. and Mrs.  Guuton of the Salvation Army was  yesterday afternoon buried with  army honors, such as members of  the corps are entitled tfo. The cere-'  mony took place after the afternoon street parade, the funeral procession starting from the barracks,  headed by the band. To the solemn  strains of the Dead March in Saul  the mourning party followed the  standard to the cemetery, where  the little one was laid to rest.  Ferguson Miners' Union.  A miner's union was established  at Ferguson on Saturday by James  Wilks, president of District Association No. 0, Western Federation of  Miners. The officers elected were:  Vincent __ Lade, president; Alex.  Brown, vice-president; Alex. J. Gordon, corresponding and financial  secretary;. Peter Ferguson, treasurer; Robert Foran. conductor and  Edmund Ward, warden. The union  starts with 43 members.  March Run at the Athabasca.  The March run at the Athabasca  yielded $7033.87, made up as follows: Value of. bullion recovered,  $5199 28; concentrates, $1834.59.  There were 444 tons of ore crushed  and the run was one of 28 days and  lfi�� hours. The property ia said to  be looking better than ever.  WHITTAKER WRIGHT SCORED  LE ROI SHAREHOLDERS BECOME  IMPATIENT.  Complain That They Get No Return  on Ore Shipments Aggregating $1,500,000.  The London shareholders in the  Le Roi are evidencing their dissatisfaction with Whittaker  Wright's management of the  company's affairs. The recent de*  cision of the directors to postpone  the declaration of a dividend  caused a sharp decline in the stock.  This, however, soon righted itself,  but a perfect fusilade of protesting  letters is still being kept up through  the press. One of the shareholders  in writing to the Financial Times  says:  "I have this morning received the  statement of the directors -of the  directors of the .Le Roi Mining  Company, Limited, informing the  shareholders of their inability to  declare an interim dividend, and,  further, that they are unable to  liquidate their indebtedness to -the  Bank ' of Montreal. This looked  all very fine on paper to  fresh shareholders induced to buy  the shares by the grand promises  of substantia^ , dividends, but- to  those of us who have listened more  than once to these unfulfilled  promises the" latest circular is  ominous. The statements contained  in it do not by a long way agree  with what was said by" the; chairman at the meeting on December  .28th. Mr. .Wright then said  that they were earning profits -at the. rate . * of 33^  per cent,-that' the quarterly dividend would be paid, and that they  would' continue' to pay"'"dividends  regularly every three months of ter^  wards. Mr. Wright also said that  the loan of ��104,000 from the Bank  of Montreal was as at 30th June,  but 'did not now exist.' Three  months after- this statement shareholders are "coolly informed that  the 'company' is unable to liquidate rts.indebtedness to the Bank  of Montreal.' Where is the money  going to? At 30th June there was  a credit balance of ��93,309. Since  then there has been extracted from  the mine ore to the value of ��327,-  000 to the end of January, and on a  fair estimate for the remaining two  months of ��89,999, in all ��416,000  for nine months, and including balance ��509,369, out of which we have  had a paltry 5 per cent. Certain  members -of the board have resigned. Shareholders now ask: Is  this latest circular the forerunuer  ofa���collapse?���London-and-Globe  shareholders were practically told  they would get a dividend in three  months. A few days -later they  were told the company could not  liquidate its indebtedness. Standard Exploration shareholders were  told that in about three months  they would receive a division of  assets equal to a long way more  than the par value of their shares.  Now, when the three months are  gone, 'reconstruction.' The British  America corporation, unable to pay  a dividend, doubts its ability to  pay its debts." -     v.:   ^-r_L :  In Honor, of Sergeant Kelly.  The Sons of England, Lodge Nelson Queen, No. 241, have invitations  out for a dinner to be given in  Fraternity Hall, on Wednesday,  May 1st, in honor of sergeant S. A.  Kelly," of the Strathcona'1 Horse, on  his return from South Africa. "Our  soldier brother," as the sergeant is  described in the invitation, is well  known in Nelson, having been connected with the provincial police  force here. There will undoubtedly  be a big turn-out to do him honor.  A Sabbath Day Funeral.  The remains of the late W. T.  Beadles were yesterday laid at rest  in the cemetery, S. S. Taylor,  James Lawrence, C. Hillyer, P.  Chapman, Fred Irvine and M. MacKay acting as pall-bearers. The  chief mourners were all Salmo meu  ���John Bell, Chris Wallis, H. R.  Campbell, J. A. Benson and M.  Donaldson. At the Methodist  church Rev. J. II. White delivered  an impressive address, and also conducted the funeral service at the  grave. Among those in the church  was the young widow of the de  ceased, with whom in her sorrow  there is great sympathy. Her husband came to Nelson to visit her at  the hospital, contracted a cold,  which settled on his lungs and  proved fatal.  Sandon's Mayor to Resign.  Mayor Pitts, of Sandon, will  probably have his resignation before the city council this week. The  unsatisfactory state <jf the municipality's finances is said to be the  cause. The Sandon jReview says  that unless ��� Sandon 'is - given the  proceeds of the personal property  tax, which at -present!; goes to the  provincial government;, the corporation will be unable to pay its~way  and will be obliged to disincorporate.  GOLD DREDGING AT iNELSON  ���-���i ' ' ���  To Be Investigated Shortly.  H. R. Bellamy, mining engineer,  is daily expecting =the arrival pf  two prominent New 'Zealand capitalists in Nelson. The gentlemen in,  question are at present-in Van-_  couver. They . are. James and  i William Patterson", and their visit  to this country isuto enquire.into  the possibilities or dredging for  gold in the rivers and lakes of  British Columbia. "There are already some half-dozen .dredges at  work in-the watersof this province,  and wherever the proper machinery  has been installed and the proper  methods" employed, the result has  been"satisfactory.- -.  .One - of- the largest and most  powerful of these dredges is now  being put together'at Kamloops to  be operated on the' North Thompson. It will have, a -capacity for  lifting", treating" and disposing of  4000 cubic yards .pen] day. ' The  depth of digging" fpom the water  line will be 40 feet,.and'.the tailings  will be-stacked to ;a; 'height of 20  feet above .the water line; at a safe  distance astern, y The (gold-saving-  tables and screens are  signed to catch the fine gold of the  Thompson river, and. are'similar to  those in use on - the. Molyneiix, in  .New.Zealand. It wilLrecJitf^e some  ���eight cords of-wood'perdayto'keep  the machinery in motion and generate a power of 150 horse.  About twenty three miles  of river have been leased by the  company who have the '-enterprise  in band; and as tests made from  time1 to time of the gravel  in the river bed run from ',15 cents  to $1 per yard, it will readily/ be  seeu that the prospects are good.  The dredge will be, ready - for work  next month, and if it proves a success the company will doubtless extend operations.  When the New Zealanders arrive  in Nelson they intend to make some  practical tests with a view of ascertaining what the prospects are for  installing, an up-to-date dredging  plant. The cost of the Kamloops  outfit is "$50,000, and it is of the  very latest make. If the gravel of  "Koot"eriay"river"prove"s���rich^eiioTfglr  to warrant such a plant here it will  no doubt be installed, as the visitors mean business, and have had  extensive experience in their own  country in this class of work.  The Nelson Crack Shots.  At the turkey shoot of the Nelson Gun Club on Saturday the  scores were as follows, each man  shooting at 25 birds; Pete Nelson  15, S. Nelsou 14, A. W. Pollock 15,  C. D. Goepel 18, and R. W. Williams shot at 15 aud broke 8. There  was a sweepstake, 25 cents entrance, each man shooting at five  birds, the result being: Pete Nelson 4, S. Nelson 3, Pollock 2, and C.  D. Goepel 5.  C. F. R. Promotions:  Montreal, April 21.���Many important changes havd^ been  announced in the operating staff of  the Canadian Pacific Railway Company. William Whyte, heretofore  manager of lines west of Fort William is appointed assistant to president Shaughnessy, with general  direction of the company's affairs  west of Fort William and .headquarters at Winnipeg. Thomas  Tait, heretofore manager of lines  east of Fort William, is appointed  master of transportation for the  entire system. J. W. Leonard, general superintendent of the Ontario  and Quebec division, is transferred  to Winnipeg as general manager of  the western division. H. P. Timmer-  man, general superintendent of the  Atlantic division at St. John, N. B.,  replaces Leonard at Toronto, and  James Osborne.general superintendent of the western division at Winnipeg replaces Timmerman at St.  John.  WINDERMERE'S RIGH MINES  WILL  CREATE   A   STIR    WITH  THEIR VALUES  When Better1 Transportation Facilities'  Enable Mine-owners to Market  Their Ore at Reasonable Cost.  " Among the successful candidates  for examination' for proficiency in  assaying which cl6'sed on Friday  was Charles F7. Nicholson, from  Peterboro, ' Windermere district,  East Kootenay. : Like all others  who have any intimate knowledge  of the mineral deposits of that district, Mr. Nicholson is very enthusiastic over "its prospects and  will cheerfully return to Peterboro  and take his chances with the  country. ,  To ' a representative of The  Tribune he said it was simply a  question of time, and it' was not  likely to'be for long, before" the  Windermere district would claim  and receive' from the investing  public the attention its merits deserved.   /  "Lam in a position," he said, "to  know whereof I *speak when discussing/ore values from "the* most  promising   prospects,   for   I   have  assayed fair average samples. Many  of them I, took myself.   Many of  ���the more promising-and important  ledges haye been examined person-  'ally. < It is true that some good men  , of experience have said the ledges  are-not permanent, but every.permanent camp in the province has  been' criticized in a similar manner  -iri   its   earlier, fiistory,   and .the  Windermere /district   will ' again  ���bring   confusion   to   these, , false  prophets. .But speaking of values  it" may not be out'of .place to s^y  that -from'1 knowledge .'of , values  ���gained,, while' iri:  charges*ofr-Mr.j  iMarsh's.officeattRossland/^d^siiMier  then "as,assistant at,the Hall Mines  smelter,   I   have a   tolerably fair  .knowledge of the .values  of West  Kootenay's   prominent   producing-  mines.      Speaking i conservatively,  for. there is  no occasion to exag-.  gerate   when   discnssing   Windermere district, that camp is going to  stagger them all when it comes to  shipping values.     That may seem  like   a   broad. statement,  but the  facts, justify jt.-  , "The great need, of the district is  of course, .transportation, yet during the season of ; navigation ' the  service is good. The Upper Columbia Navigation Company ,give a  good steamboat; service from Golden .to Windermere lake, the head  waters of the Columbia. Commodore Armstrong is doing all that  lies in his power to encourage ship-  ~ments~of_ore~and- lias-imposed- the"  nominal rate of $2 per ton from  Peterboro to Golden, a distance of  about 80 miles. The great desire  of every man who knows the remarkably good values of the ore is  to see shipments made. That is all  that is required to attract capital.  Prospectors are realizing this and  there is every indication that the  coming season will see many of the  properties worked by the original  owners with a view to making initial shipments.,  "Then the wagon.roads and trails  are not what the importance of the  district demands. The Columbia  valley in the mineral district is  about 20 miles wide, gradually rising in a series of terraces untilthe  mountains on either side are  reached./ Tliis condition is favorable for agricidture and the land is  being taken up for ranching nnd in  a few years supplies for^tlie iriines  will be produced in their immediate  vicinity. This will, of course, be to  the advantage of the then owners,  but at the present stage of affairs  the cost of packing ore from the  properties to transportation is so  high that there is little inducement  to the original owners, who are  mostly men without means, to get  out ore. Then there are a score or  more claims which have ore in shipping quantity and quality ou the  surface which could pay good pro-  fiits from the starts if transportation to the river were only easier.  "The first wagon road was built  last autumn. It extends from  Peterboro up Toby creek for a distance of about eleven miles. Tliis  piece of public work made it possible for the Paradise mine to begin  rawhiding as soon as snow; came.  The ore was brought. down to the  wagon road, where it waa -transferred to sleighs and hauled to the  river. A year ago the Paradiae was  an undeveloped prospect. Today  *it has 1000 tons of ore at;the river  awaiting transportation to the  smelter. There ��� are upwards of  3000 tons in sight at the mine. A^  year' ago the opinion was abroad  that, Windermere was a dead'dlick  .through the failure to take up the"  bond on the' Red Line group of  claims. It was not for lack of faith  in the'property that the deal-fell  through. 'It- was from . .circum-  stances whicli would be too tedious  to mention, but suffice it to say that-  another'bond was taken soon after  the'first lapsed and was taken up  aboiit a month ago, although the  time jvas not up until May. The  price paid was1 $50,000.-  -  "The Delphine is a well developed  property, but at present is unproductive ^through some misunderstanding - among the owners. The  property made a- shipment last  spring, and in spite' of the cost of  packing from the mine to transportation, left a good margin; The  Silver Belt in the immediate neighborhood of the Paradise has ore to  ship and will be developed this  summer. The Silver King has several tons of ore in sight, and has  had specimens of several hundred  pounds', weight on exhibition in  Peterboro.  The Diamond C group has several  hundred feet of work done and has  had assay values of over $200.  This is no betrayal of confidence,  for the values were ' published at  the time in the Outcrop, our newsy.  and wideawak local paper. The'  Phoenix group has had steady development work done all last summer and through the winter until  recently, and the pack trail was!not  fit to get in more,'so the men had to*  go down. Tlie Sitting Bull, group  has ore of high value ou the dump,  but unfortunately it - has not been  worked lately. It is waiting for"  improved conditions in transportar  .tion. .---->     . ,        -."���'"  Then the ledges there" are remarkable in'size.- - property'';  the White .Cat,.which-hasran out;'  crop of-solid^galena,four,'feeb,wideX  .TheJpropVrtycpi^  transportation'charges of "present  unfavorable conditions and yield a"  handsome "surplus. ' The  most important discovery made  in the district Jast season was  a   ledge  of  chalcopyrite.'  The   discovery   was  not made until  late in'August and  during the first week in September  I was on the ground.    A prospector's pick only had been used to expose the ledge, aud as was to be expected   but very little work   had  been done���not enough to show the  width of the paystreak.    But what  was  shown  was very satisfactory.  The ore was at the grass roots and  a foot wide.    Samples  from different parts  of the ledge assayed 31  and 32 per cent of copper and 30 ot  silver.    The altitude was such that  no work could be done that season,  but  the  owners will  get to work  Ibliisspringas soon as tlie season per-  mits.  As already stated, the great need  of the district is wagon roads.  These can be built at comparatively small cost. The valleys  through which the streams flow  are wide and present no difficulties  for constructing wagon roads or  railways. An extension of the Toby  creek wagon road to Jumbo creek  would encourage several claim  owners to work their properties.  Last fall a survey was made for a  road to the junction of Boulder  creek with Horsethief creek, but in  justice to the Red Lion property,  which is bound to become a producer, the road should be extended  to that property. Other claim  owners, would be encouraged to get  ore out for shipment, and when  that time comes the district will  receive attention, for tho ore is  there, it carries values, and shipments will demonstrate that fact.  The country is only paitially prospected. The field is large, and all  the good things by no means discovered.  ��� ,   The Shacks Must Go.  A notice was on Saturday posted  on all the shacks on Q. & K, railway  lands in Nelson, notifying the  occupiers that "if this building is  not removed within fifteen days  you will be prosecuted." The notice  will no.doubt prove effective in so  far as inducing the occupants to  clear out, but that they will remove  the buildings is very doubtful. It  will be no easy task to prove ownership. However, much will have  been accomplished if the wretched  abodes are vacated, as they are a  positive danger to the health of the  community.  ENGLAND'S   BIC   CONTEST  WITNESSED     BY     OVER     114,815  SPECTATORS.  /  Sensational Termination of a Final in*  "the Race for an Association  Football Cup.  London, April 20.���War and politics have taken a back "seat for today throughout the United Kingdom, arid the sole absorbing topic  of national importance is the great  football niatch at the* Crystal'Pal-  ace for the possession of the association cup.    The. Sheffield United  and the Tottenham Hotspurs are  the  two  teams  competing  in  the  final.   The   extraordinary interest  annually shown in the contest is  heightened by the  fact that not'  only is today's battle between the  north and  the south, but it is 20  years since a London club figured  in,J_the -final.    The    influx   from  the   provinces   beats   all   records.  Sixty special   trains   emptied into  London    thousands    of    enthusiasts    from    all   -parts    of    the',  provinces, and bewildered comman- -  dos of foreigners traveled  all night  long without sleep to witness' the  game.   It i3 snfe to say that 6000  people from the provinces, of all  sorts and conditions, arrived in the  metropolis this morning and proceeded in a steady stream towards  Crystal   Palace.       That    gigantic  feasting is anticipated .may be gathered from a perusal of a few'of the,;  principal items of the .list o��edibles  prepared  at - the palace, wnicKVin-'  elude thirty cattle and .fifty sheep,"  3000 fowls, 22,400 pounds of pota- -  toes, ten thousand pork- pies, and >  less substantial articles sufficient foran army corps.'        ;���-,*���"'-" '"-'  The   official ' report"   places' the  number of   spectators^- at- 114,815.

Mr. Jardine informs him that  as it will be some months before a  large number of awards obtaiued  by Canadians at the world's fair iu  Paris will be ready to be sent out  by the French authorities, a diploma  had been prepared at Ottawa and  forwarded to all those entitled to  receive awards, pending the receipt  of the orignal prizes from Paris.  The-diploma-in���questiori_was���evi~  dently designed for agricultural exhibits. It is a lithographic sheet,  with a plowing scene at the top,  sheaves of wheat to either side and  shipping and manufactories represented below, with the Canadian  coat of arms. There is nothing in  the illustrations to suggest that  there is such an industry as mining  in the Dominion. A similar diploma  has been received by captain Duncan and others who have contributed to the ore collection sent to  the fair.

Baker  Street,  Nelson.  �� ��it�� BCribuiw;  Newspaper report has it that six  of the supporters of  the Dunsmuir  government intend to bolt.    In the  casas of Helmcken and Hill, cf Victoria, the reason assigned is the reluctance of-the government to vote  $4000 per mile to the holders of the  V., V. & E. charter for constructing  a railway which a rival company is  willing to build without subsidy.  The same motive is said to actuate  Dennis   Murphy, of Yale.    In  the  case of McPhillips, of Victoria, the  assigned cause is his  fear that the  government intends to adopt "Joe"  Martin's "policy of government control of railways ; and in the cases of  Garden and Tatlow, of Vancouver,  the justification offered is the~fear  that the   government may either,  grant the subsidy to the holders of  the   V.,   V. ��� & E.,   or permit the  Canadian Pacific campany to build  it without subsidy instead of undertaking the construction as a government work.    It is manifest, there-  fore, that the _goverment   cannot  .please all of the strikers, and if they  are'sincere some of them must go.  By' many   it   will   be   considered  remarkable that the bolt should be  'timed,upon the eve of the expected  retirement    of    the    minister   of  .finance, and that the bolters should  all be men who hold to the opinion  that   the   chief   weakness   in   the  present cabinet was occasioned by  their own individual exclusion.  between British Columbia aud the  state of Washington, aud the work  will be undertaken this summer.  The finding of the surveyors will  deprive space-writers of their  opportunities for earning easy  money by locating the mining  divisions of Kootenay north or  south of the boundary as suits'  their readers.  The relative strength of the government and Opposition parties in  the legislature was indicated by the  "vote upon Brown's amendment to  the Public School Act. In support  .of the amendment the Opposition  polled its full strength, the vote  standing 9 to 25 with three members of the government party���  Messrs. Pooley, Hunter and Mounce  ���absent. This would not indicate  any very grave crisis, even should  ' all six of the alleged bolters cast  their lot in with the Opposition. This  would make the relative strength  of the parties upon the floor of the  Louse, 15 as against 22, which may  be considered a 'reasonably safe  working majority.  The investment features which  Lave been incorporated with life  insurance have just about doubled  the amount of insurance carried by  Canadians within the past ten  years. The government return for  the past year shows the total  amount of insurance carried to be  $431,962,423, and of this amount  $09,301,444 was new business. Just  .what insurance companies gain  through lapsed policies is evidenced  by the fact that during^ 1900 the  ���value of policies allowed to lapse  was $23,413;811.  Montreal people say that in the  event of the federal government  granting a bonus upon the production of pig lead, the refinery -will  be stationed at either Montreal or  Toronto.  An arrangement has been arrived  at between the governments of the  Dominion and the   United States I  for a re-survey of   the boundary  For alcoholic drinks the people  of the United States last year paid  $1,059,563,787, or at the rate of  $13 79 for every than, woman and  child. Booze cost the people of  Canada something like $5.25 per  head per annum last year, but in  view of the railway lobbies at Victoria aud Ottawa an increase may  be expected in the figures for the  current year.  Toronto will require to raise  $2,745,584 this year. This will put  the tax rate at 2l�� mills on the  dollar.  Nome Freezing Story Denied.  Vancouver, April 21���[Special  to the Tribune].���The steamer Victorian, from Skagway, today  brought news entirely discrediting  the report of the freezing to death  of two hundred miners at Cape  Nome, news to that effect having  come down to Victoria yesterday  by the steamer Danube. The Skagway Alaskan, which first printed  the story, suggests that the  man who first started the story be  given a job on the government  wood pile at Dawson.  The steamer Comox went ashore  at midnight last night at Frederick's Arm, 80 miles from Vancouver. Her captain mistook a light  on land for the wharf, and  accordingly the boat ran into the  bank. _ She was injured, and it may  be some time before she is floated.  ���.���Irish-Beef���for ^British���Troops.   Dublin, April 21.���At a gathering  of the Irish cattle traders' association the chairman announced that  he had ascertained on good authority that the war office had declared  that in future* troops stationed in  Ireland should be supplied with  Irish meat only, instead of foreign,  thus removing a substantial Irish  grievance.        \  MILLINERY   DISPLAY  The ladles of Nelson can now  have.the opportunity of seeing  the latest and newest designs in  HATS AMD SPRING GOODS  Ladies genuine Hair Switches at  the  lowest  rates.  MRS.   ^NPIEUD  OPERA 1IOUSK 1H.OCK.  New York, April 21.���A special  cable despatch to tlie New Yoik  Tribune, from I. N. Ford, dated  London says: "In club land yesterday the rewards for service iu South  Africa formed the principal topic  of conversation. Regret was general that there had not been shown  greater discrimination in drawing  up the list. No fault was found  with lord Roberts, but the custom  which has long obtained of apportioning rewards in accordance with  rank, rather than merit, was freely  condemned. It is evident that red  tape has not yet become a thing of  the past in the war office, seeing  that officers whose names have become household words throughout  the British empire for brilliant performances against the Boers, and ou  whom lord Roberts himself, bestowed special commendation, are  classed with,those of less notable  quality.  Sir Alfred Milner's depressing  account of the situation in Cape  Colony is emphasized by a telegram  from East London announcing that  the Boers held up a train near Mol-  teno on Thursday night, notwithstanding the recen$ severe' measures dealt out to train wreckers.  The people here fail to understand  why marauding commandoes are  still able to roam about the colony  without fear of being captured.   x  Speculation is rife as to the meaning of the French foreign minister's  approaching visit to Sfc. Petersburg.  Usually well informed people profess to believe that M., Delcasse  wishes to arrange with count Lans-  dorff a new scheme .for joint action  in China. A statesman, howeveV,  can never go to a foreign capital  without eliciting curiosity as to his  movements and all manner of  rumors concerning the purpose of  his visit. ,_  Sir Redvers Buller was the guest  of the Royal Naval Club at dinner  last night at the Hotel Metropole.x  Death of Harry Flanagan.  Harry Flanagan, a well-known  figure in^Nelson for the past five or  six years, died at'the general hospital yesterday. He was admitted to  the institution on Wednesday in a  very weak condition, and from the  time he was put to bed there was  no hope of his recovery. Deceased  was for many years book-keeper  and confidential man in the firm of  S. B. Heward, one of the ��� largest  wholesale houses in Montreal. He  has a brother in the civil service at  Ottawa, and another brother is a  partner in the Baptiste Milling Co.  at Calumet. Flanagan was about  45 years of age and came west while  railway construction was iu progress.

, Korea Wants a Loan.
Yokohama, April 22.'— The
Korean goyernment, according to
advices just received from Seoul,
the capital of Korea, has decided to
borrow.from France 5,000,000 yen,
for the purpose of constructing the
northern railway from Seoul to
Wiju. It is asserted that it was
his objection to pledging
Korean customs as surety' for
loan which created a desire in
tain quarters for the.dismissal of
McLeayy Brown, director general
of Korean customs. According to
the "same advices vice-admiral Seymour, and sir Claude M. MacDonald,
British"" minister to Japan, have
arrived at, , Chemulpo, Korea, on
board-the British cruiser, Powerful,
and it is expected that they will
have an' audience of emperor Yi
Hieung. The Seoul correspondent
adds that Russia is attempting to
secure a lease of Chin Hai bay.

Dumbarton, April 21.���Shamrock N. was successfully launched  yesterday afternoon at Denny's  yard, in the presence of a large  crowd of invited guests, newspapermen and employees. Lady Dufferin christened the new challenger.  Tlie new yacht looked spick and  span in its coat of white paint,  rimmed with green, while the manganese bottom shone like a mirror.  Lord and lady Dufferin, sir Thomas  Lipton, and others, who came from  Glasgow on a special train, stood  upon a raised platform decorated  \Wtli Union Jacks, the Stars aud  Stripes and the; Irish flag, and with  Venetian masts in green and white,  which were the prevailing colors.  The weather could not have been  better, the sun shone brightly and  overcoats had been discarded. The  employees of the Dennys had a  holiday, and in fact all Dumbarton  was en fete to see lady Dufferin  break the bottle over the curiously  stubbed bows of the new boat.  There is no disguising the* fact  that the British experts here today  are very confident about the new  boat, and think her the best that  ever challenged the cup.  "But, if you don't win?" said the  correspondent of the Associated  Press to sir Thomas Lipton, "will  you try it again?" "I expect next  year to build a defender, not a  challenger," was the answer. In  this connection the manager of  Denny's yard said: "When James  Gordon Bennett saw Shamrock II.  here a few week's ago he said,'Well,  if she wins I am prepared to build  a challenger." " ',.'"'-  - At 11:45 a.m.. today sir Thomas  Lipton .personally, conducted   the  correspondent" of.  the . Associated  Press over and under,the Shamrock  II.     This   minute, inspection  confirmed -thet description'/)f the, .cup-  challenger "cabled to the Associated  Press last night:' She'is built to a  general  type, Siit   embodies such  novelties as''prove hiei\ designer pursued an independent line of development.    When'the yacht" is ..'viewed  in profile the' most striking feature  is the extreme fineness bf ,her ends.  The overhangs fore and   aft   are  drawn to exceptional lengths, and  the   waterline   underneath    looks  deceptively   short.    ,Her fin is 'of  medium   length,   probably  .thirty  feet at the extreme measurement,  and finished at the bottom  with a  pronounced rocker.  Without.doubt  the' chief characteristic of the yacht  is the manner in which her beam is  thrown right forward, almost  into  the eyes of the boat, with the for-,  ward deck carried out full well into  the overhang, and the drawing iu  does not start until half way between the mast and stern.   From  without the mast it runs aft iu a  long~easjnJurve, and goes out into"  the longest and finest counter ever  seen in a challenger,' the breadth at  the taffrail  being only about seven  feet.    For   the   purpose   of   saving   weight ^f or ward   the     stern  is      snubbed'     off,      leaving     a  small fiat triangular surface under  the bowsprit.   The deck with its  wide'lines forward and exceptionally fine run, has the appearance of  having been suggested  by towing  experiments.  Some danger of forming a forward shoulder might havo been experienced in drawing the wide deck  down to tlio final lines under the  body, but the probe seems to have  been met successfully. ' Every line  runs true. - The. general shape  of the boat gives the impression of  a boat which should be able to keep  her head well up no matter how  hard pressed. It was in this ability to keep her head up that the  Columbia's' chief superiority over  the first Shamrock lay.  To take the first .'Shamrock as a  standard for comparison, it may be  TELEPHONE 27  mmi  Sioro, Corner Baker and Josephine Stieet  PAINTS, OILS 4ND CUSS.  GARDEN  TOOLS.

When the yacht  is viewed end oii, it is seen that  Mr. Watson has . departed greatly  from the midship section adopted  .by Fife. The challenger is immeasurably easier than the previous  boat in the thin of the bulge and  garboards, and easiet; even than the  Columbia. The finish is narrow in  the section where it joins the hull  and spreads until it turns in the  round of the trough in which the  lead is carried. The same principle  of skimming water is seen in the  after end. All the sections are  again in segments of a circle.  The total draught from the  water line to the rocker curve of  the belt is only ten, inches over 18  feet, or two feet less than that of  the previous challenger, ln the  measurement, at the extreme beam,  there is little difference, though the  point of thin measurement falls"  much more forward in- the Fife,  boat. In the matter of overall  -length the advantage lies with the  new-craft by nearly 10 feet. Summing up, the challenger undoubt-'  edly had the finest lines ever turned  out of the Clyde. She" undoubtedly  has a hull that will be easily driven.  Her beam will, give her a good deal  of stability. But she will probably  sail a trifle tender, and will be best  suited- when club topsails can** be  carried with dry. ..decks., < 'Captain  Hogarth; who sailed the ~lasfc ^clial-  lenger, said to the correspondent of  the Associated Press : .''Everything  has been done in the. best possible  way.
