This morning's session of Hi,. c|tJ
police court was marked by the appear,
ance of two old offenders and one new
one of a familiar type, which is gradually being eliminated by the pulliu
from Nelson and vicinity.
Alex. McGregor, who has already
served two terniB for forgery In tho
provincial gaol at Nelson, pleaded gull
t) In the same charge again, and was
romnnded till tomorrow for sentence.
His former offences-were committed al
Itossliind nnd (Irand Forks. He was ;u
rested In Nelson on Friday lust on a
charge of vagrancy, and held pending
Investigation. The police soon discovered that he had cashed a cheque, signed "Norman McLcllau," drawn In his
own favor, for $40. The Bank of .Montreal "didn't know" either Norman He
Lellan or Alex. McGregor, and refused
payment McGregor will be sentenced
tomorrow. .
George Henry Fisher appeared on the
usual charge. He arrived in the city
last Saturday morning with $100, as be
says. He was arrested al midnight
Saturday, being very drunk and without money to pay for a bed. He was
sen'.enced to jr. and costs or ten days,
ar.d will probably choose perforce tho
second alternative.
Thomas Thlght, of Fernie, who has
a crippled hand, was arrested this
morning and brought up at once fur
begging. He was remanded for one
day, and will be escorted to the Crow
bout tomorrow morning.
When the court sits today ladles and
gentlemen to the number of U will appear to answer to the charge of infraction of city bylaw No. BO, by allowing

Nelson friends lust night by arming
Iroin the east, Mr. Elliott Is on bin return to his present headquarters m
Vancouver from a trip to Cobalt, tbj
mining center of Northern Ontari.
In the courso of conversation a: the
Strnibcona last night. Mr. Elliott nave
ids Impressions of Eastern Canada s
newest mineral held and Its attraninns
to various classes of mining men. He
sit id:
"It is n hard country to size Up. I:
is undoubtedly rich. An average carload shipment, I am told, la worth
about 140,000. The veins are more numerous lhan in any other mining camp
known. They average eight to ten
Inches In width, and carry native silver.
A man or company that gets hold ol
even one of those veins doesn't q< ��� -j
any more.   It's a fortune.
"Of course every one doesn't get such
u vein us that. Those who have them,
or even think they have them, wan the
price of proved mines for them. It's a
common saying there that u man who
has a blue streak on the ground wants
Jtii.ouo for It. There have boen numerous disappointments already. Ail iliu
rich mines' had rich surface showings.
Hut there are tunny surface showing
as rich as the best that didn't go down
at ull. They were actually dug up.
Some of the claims with such showings
were nought at pretty high prices, and
the purchasers lost heavily.
"Tho history or the Cobalt field is peculiar. It had been travelled over bj
lumbermen fon years. They had sei-n
Hie blue streaks on the surface, but
they conveyed no meaning to them.
There are many places where the
scratch of a hob-nailed shoe will make
ilie rock shine.
"There are other difficulties ahead
liesides the fact thai all the lurface
it-ins don't go down. Where there is
not n showing on tho surface [ben i>
no indication of any kind There is no
float' and in many places there is ti"
rock on the surface at all. It In also a
heavily timbered country, nnd to reach
even the surface of the ground one has
tn clear away sometlmeB a consldtraHd
ilcpth of brushwood; so. although the:.
are no mountains to climb, and hard y
.untiling Hint a Ilrltish Columbian
would cull a hill, it Is not exactly an
easy country to prospect for mineral
All discoveries made so fur have been
mode on the surface.
Then, the    Ontario    mining    law
though admirable    in  many    respect .
liioiliiec some peculiar conditions,   r.
stilling In serious risks and lnconven
leiicos.   The lows tire gisid In that the)
prevent anyone from   holding   claim
viiihotit working them; hut they do Dot
afford protection In nil eases to the man
who Is working.
Here's an Instance: A man Is work
nut ground adjoining one of tho riches
in"" �� of the district. There is no niln
u.'l In plnce on the surface Ho) hi
sunk a shaft through the soil and dowi.
itit" the bedrock. He didn't happen 1,
siriko n vein. He hardly expected to
,hi mat. Now he bus to drift for a voin
In the meantime, not having found min
r-rsl In Place, although ho has spent 1,
 ,f ,nn,"'v. he bus no title at all, am.
cannot even apply r<,n onc>. M ,s stm
open to anyone else to sink on the
sain" ground and begin exploring. The
li.-i man to find a vein gets the ground
1 nm told that nothing of the kind
has ever happened so far. Of course
ti,.  xocond man would |,e taking   the
  chances an the first.
"I  'lo"! know what    ,ho shipments
front the district to dute amount to, but
"���r camps are springing up In the
neighborhood. It Is generally believed
that the actual mineral Held Is 01 com-
paratlvely small area, but It has no|
been known, much less studied, for a
long enough time for its area and geological formations to be known.
"I have heard tbat there are a lot of
Urltlsb Columbia men in the district,
but I didn't run across them. The only
Nelson man I met was R. W. Brlgstock,
who is in Cobalt."
.Mr. Elliott's trip was taken as a visit
i" his brother. F. C. Elliott, formerly of
Nelson, and also for the purpose of having a look at tho country. He came
through Nelson on his return to look
ii|i his old friends.
Owing to the severity of the
windstorm of yesterday, the local
telegraph office was unable to secure the usual quota of telegraphic news. We do not Invent news,
neither do we propose to go up
against Providence or the elements. Our local news today In
its variety and plenitude makes
the best possible substitute.
Account of Development Work to Date
Rumored Intention of Company to
Build Smelter on Thompson.
Tin- following description of the Iron
.Mask miin'. near Kamloops, is taken
Irotu the May number of the B. C. Mining Bxchange, in which appears an interview with S. Argall, superintendent:
Today the Iron Mask is a fully developed mine to the "UO-foot level; sufficient ore is blocked out to keep the
present plant in operation without any
furt'rr development work for fully five
years. The ore body is of immense ex-
teut, and the general grade of the ore
alga. Development work is being pros-
t-iitti with the uttermost vigor, and
the company are extending their operations iKith ways. Within the last year
a very tine vein of ore hitherto unsus-
pected hits been opened up; it was discovered after drifting through a diabase
wall alongside the main ore body, and
Is the best ore the company has on the
property. At present the ore shipped
dtreel Is hauled to the C. P. R., five
miles away, by melius of a traction en-
si m; the balance of the ore is concentrated en the property and the coucen-
trates smelted in a oli-ton smelter
ulihli the company lias on the ground.
Rumor was lire in Kamloops! that the
company Intended building this yenr a

Increase of Nearly Forty
Per Cent
Quartz, Coal Mining: and Lumbering Prosperous Throughout B. C.
The Labor Gasette for May has the
following summary of tho local status
of the labor and manufacturing industries. The reports from the coast cities and rural districts show a comfortable degree of prosperity Is enjoyed
throughout British Columbia:
The general condition of the lubor
market throughout the Kootenay district during April was active, and the
demand for unskilled labor, such as
sawmill men and practical woodsmen,
exceeded the supply.
During the first week of the month
the wages of shovellers, commonly call
ed muckers, employed in the Rossltin-j
mines were voluntarily increased by
the management from $2.50 to (2.75 per
day. The rate previously prevailing for
similar work was 50 cents per dr.y lower than that paid in other mining camps
of the Kootenay district. Tho. increase
In wages was an effort on the part of
the management to obtain and retain
efficient employees for this class of
wo.'r. The increase will affect about
255    orkmen.
The receipts of the Nelson customs
office for the quarter ended March 31,
1906, showed an Increase of nearly 40
per cent., denoting the increasing activity in business generally In this district
There was no unrest in the labor
market, employers and employees all
working in harmony.
At the Eureka mines, situated near
the Granite Poorman group, the disappearance of snow has made the road
from the mine to the upper terminal of
the tram line Impassable, and shipments cannot be resumed for a short
time at least, though in the meantime
development work is actively under
way. Drifts are being run north and
south on the 150-foot level. A small
sawmill to cut all timber required for
tunneling and mine building will be
erected. Six hundred and ninety-nine
tons of ore, averaging $30 per ton. have
been marketed at the Trail smelter up
to date during 1906. Drifting in the
Le Roi Is still In progress on the S00-
foot level west of the big "Josle dyke,"
and the ore Is said to maintain good
values throughout. The Velvet-Portland, which was shut down for a year.
Is being reopened. The owner and operator of the Queen mine has purchased
the Yellowstone group of claims and
the stamp mill thereon. A Nelson firm
Is operating under lease ahd bond a
property known as the Mother Lode
group, consisting of seven claims running In 11 straight line along a fissure
vein of free-milling ore, situated about
two miles up Sheep creek from the Yellowstone mine. Under the agreement,
fit tons of ore have been shipped to the
Trail smelter, the average value being
agout $120 per Ion. from which the lessors have received over $3,000. It Is
proposed to equip this property with a
ten-stamp mill and a tramway with as
little delay as possible. The Consolidated Mining slid Smelting Company-
has declared an Initial dividend of 2 1-2
per cent, for the quarter ending March
31, 190C, payable May 31, which is at
the rate of 10 per cent, per annum.
The lead contents of the ore treated
at the Hall Mines smelter for March.
1906, amounted to 1,142 tons. It was
slated that the Sullivan mine at Marys-
vlllc, East Kootenay, made a profit of
$17,000 in March, 1906.
The Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company's collieries at Coal Creek and Michel
were running full force, there being
neither a surplus nor shortage of labor.
The new steel tipple at Coal Creek Is
now in fltst-elnss working order.
The majority of the lumber mills
started cutting this month, the Elk Riv
er Lumber Company, at Fernie, and tho
Nelson mill being among the exceptions. There was a slight shortage of
mill hands, and a considerable shortage
of practical woodsmen. The large new
mill belonging U> the Elk River Company, at Fernie, will be completed and
tunning about May 15, 1906. This mill
will have a capacity of 150,0uo feet In
ten hours' run, buug supplied with the
moBt modern machinery. The Yale-
Columbia Company's mill, at Nelson,
started cutting on r/gylS; the company
has been unable to fill all orders, received from the prairie provinces.
Importance of Thinning Fruit on Heavily Loaded Trees.
One of the great advantages of fruit
growing in the wesi Is the marked ear-
liness with which trees come into bearing age, and the prolific yield of varieties which are but moderate beavers in
the east. It is an advantage, however,
which has its dangers, and it is certain
that many trees iu the west are ruined
by (he tremendous loads of fruit which
they are permitted to carry when young.
The constitution of the tree is Impaired,
not, by the actual ���weight of fruit, but
by the number of seeds which are produced. Fruit itself consists of some 95
par cent, of water, and though the fact
is realized by few, a bushel of first-
class fruit will often realize three times
as much money us a bushel of third-
class specimens, while the latter, from
the greater number of seeds, will take
twice as much out of thej constitution
of the tree.
Tninning, therefore, pays; first, because it increases the quality of the
product; second, because it lessens the
drain on the tree. As to the expense,
II should be remembered that the fruit
has to be picked some time, and it
costs really less to pick It now than
when full grown, so tbat the labor of
thinning need not be taken Into account at all.
It Is also clear that thinning should
be done early to be really effective, as
the formation of the actual seed starts
not very long subsequent to the setting
of the fruit. Nq, part of horticultural
work will pay so big u return for the
expenditure of money and time as the
thinning process.
Sketch of New Pastor.
Rev. R. Newton Powell, who is to succeed Mr. Dean, will arrive in the city
In time to take his pulpit on Sunday,
June 10, bringing his family with him.
Mr. Powell is young, strong, energetic,
genial, of good executive and administrative ability, and a thoughtful and
eloquent preacher. He lias been eight
years in British Columbia, during
which time he has served whole or
partial terms at New Denver, Enderby,
Haliburton street, Nanaimo, and has
just now completed bis third year at
Princess street church, the second
Methodist church of Vancouver.
It Is stated that copper mining Is tin
industry which is rapidly decreasing in
importance in Great Britain. In 1863
the production of copper ore anil copper precipitate amounted to upwards of
210,000 tons, valued at more than
$5,0(10.000, whereas in 1904 the production was only 5.465 tons, valued at
$S9,S(10. Cornwall is the main source
of supply of this ore, and copper precipitate Is being obtained from cupreous
water pumped from old mines on Parys
mountain, in Anglesey.
In connection with the recent declaration of a dividend of two shillings per
share by the Le Rol No. 2 Company,
the London office has issued a notice
that the company has secured a new
and more favorable smelting contract
as the result of a recent visit of the
chairman to Rossland.
A sample of free gold ore from the
Neversilp, owned by Joseph Simpson,
and located near Grand Forks, gave
$5,284 per ton In gold and a trace of
copper. The quartz ledge is said to b#.
a large one.
The director of the United States
mini, Washington, D. C, Is stnted to
have predicted that the world's production of gold wiiravet-age not less than
$400,000,000 per year for the next twenty years.
TJsa machinery for the five-stamp
mill for the Carmi, which has been at
Midway for some time, was unloaded
and sent to the mine up the West Fork
the other day.
Gousf ruction of Three New
Mills is Begun
Demand Grater Than Possible Supply and Still Growing���
A. Carney's Views.
Nowhere else in British Columbia Is
the revival in the lumber industry so
marked or so general as In Southeast
Kootenay, along the line of the Crow'a
Nest branch of the C. P. R. Not only
are all the existing mills in full operation, many of them working overtime,
but three new mills are now under construction, and many others are projected, ..in! will in nil probability be
completed this summer.
A. (carney, provincial timber inspect-
or totf Southeast Kootenay, arrived In
Nelaon Sunday night on his way home
to Ka*lo after a trip over his Inspectorate. 'Been this morning, Mr. Carney
"The industry has never looked better in East Kootenay than It does now<
The lumbermen are all working overtime, doing their best to fill orders. In
some cases they are actually sending
out green lumber because their customers prefer that to none at all.
"But the most striking evidence of
the revival is the construction simultaneously of three new mills. One ia being built at Elkmouth, near Bain's lake.
It will have a capacity of between 70,-
000 and 80,000 feet a day. Another la
being built just east of Jaffray by
North Star people, Mr. Hanbury, of
Brandon, being in charge. Its rapacity
will be 40,000 feet a day. The third Is
a new mill for the King Lumber Company, of Cranbrook. It is located near
Yahk junction, and Its capacity la also
to be 40,000 feet.
"Those three are actually under construction at the present time. Plans
for others are now under consideration,
while still more are being talked   of.
1 expect to see at least as many more
begun this year.
"The East. Kootenay lumbermen are
happy. They believe, and I tbink all
the conditions and prospects warrant
the belief, that their long period of
waiting and hoping is over, and the
time of realization has come. They
havo suffered from low prices, due to
unfair competition, and from ' small
profits due to that and other conditions*
Now everything is changed. The demand from the territories is greater
than they can overtake for some time,
and It is increasing, and certain still to
increase fast enough to justify the construct Ion of many more mills.
"Yes. the outlook for the lumber industry in- this part of the province Is
splendid. The lumbermen's most sanguine expectations are now being realized, and there Is no danger of* a der
clinlng demand for many years to
Record Apple Crop.
Fred Adle, of Waneta, district fruit
pest inspector, is In the city toduy on
official business. Seen at the Hume
this afternoon, he expressed the opinion, based on his visits to many orchards, that the apple crop of Kootenay for 1906 will be a record one. There
are, he says, more trees In bearing than
ever before, and all the Indications are
highly  encouraging.
The strawberry crop, Mr, Adle thinks,
will be rather lighter than usual, as tho
severe frost of March damaged many
of the plants. Those that survived,
however, are doing well, and while the
quantity may be less, the quality will
be fully up to the Kootenay's high
A hydraulic mining cocpany has been
formed in Asbcroft with a capital of
$250,000 to operate mines on Cunning

Notorious Criminal Released from Penitentiary���Had Just Begun Serving.
Vancouver, June '1.���This city has not
yet  recovered   from   Its  surprise    and
mortification at tbe unexplained action
of the department of Justice ia releasing Desire Jtrotbier from the provincial
penitentiary at New Westminster.    Ho
is known here as perjurer, vagrant, procurer, alleged forger, alleged thief and
lhe  vilest   criminal  ever  sentenced   by
tbe  courts of   British   Columbia.    Tbe
Officials   here ,are   asking   each   other
what is the use of pulling themselves
to  the trouble and  the country  to  the
expense of prosecuting such vile char*
actors, surrounded as such eases always
aie with so many unpleasant features,
if the  department   is  to interfere ami
release men before they have well begun  serving   tbe senleiiee  imposed   by
the courts.   When Brothler was arrested he made several attempts' to effect
his escape, among them being an offer
to bribe the police olllcer who arresled
him.    The  sum   tendered   was $7,eun,
bui  the man's villainy    was so    weljf
known to the police that no monetary
consideration could have altered    the
course  of justice.     Less   Iban  half  of
the counts  in   the  indictment    against
Brothler were beard when be was on
trial, ami a prominent  barrister hen1
has volunteered the opinion that, could
he (Brothler) be found, he could again
be  placed   behind   lite   bars.     Brothler
has,  however,  made himself    scarce���
sneaking away under cover of darkness,
il  is said.    In all, there were live sen-
lenees against   him.    He was sent  up
for six  mouths for breaking jail,   and
bad another short term against him for
vagrancy,  by being a frequenter of a
house in the restricted district. He was
[hen sentenced for live years for perjury, and  two    years    each    on    two
charges of) procuring.    Some of    these
terms   were   to  run  concurrently,  but
the period of his incarceration was seven years.    In 'the facq of all this, the
department  steps  in, and,  as is said,
through the efforts of a tlrin oil  Montreal lawyers, he was pardoned out af-
ler  serving    two    years.    Many  hard
words against  the  department  are  being uttered in Vancouver and elsewhere
throughout the province.

Such garbling of siatements as given
by your correspondent is unworthy the

fo rthem to come from the ministerial
session of the conference which passed

the only party outside of that body
who could furnish you with lhe itemized charges preferred against me, of
which I assert I am innocent. I am the
more pained that reference was had to
my daughter having given evidence.
Why was It not staled that she withdrew her evidence, slating she had
been unduly Influenced, and, further.
voluntarily gave rebuttal evidence? It
is also Important that the public should
know the complainant offered to two
others to withdraw those abominable
charges If I would resign from Ihe ministry. Is not this equivalent lo compounding a penal action? To say the
least, it must be evidenl to all tbat
complainant's action has been prompt
ed by an exceedingly unfriendly spirit,
This :s explained by the fact that the
three months have passed since he first
brought sorrow and disgrace on our

some very interesting and valuable
