No matter how well nature has endowed you, it is necessary
to use the best tooth cleanser and preservative that you can
find. It doesn't pay to risk getting discolored and unsound
teeth.   You should use
Russel's Cream Dentifrice
Regularly. It cieans the teeth perfectly; keeps the gums
firm and rosy, and corrects bad breath. * It is a tooth paste
valuable in preventing the decay of your teeth    25 cents.
Oi course you want a good tooth brusli to go with it.

Diamond Drilling on the
Rathmullen—Granby
Mines.
Phoenix, May 19—On behalf of
himself and associates J. C. Haas,
M. E., has just taken an option on
the high grade gronp of olaims
formerly owned by the Boundary
Creek Mining and Miling Company
whioh are now the property of the
Bank of Montreal. There are about
12 olaims in the group inoluding
the D. A. and others, and in the
past they have given most encouraging results for development.
Mr. Haas is starting work on the
group at onoe.
In a few days it is ezpeoted that
connections will be made in the
long No. 4 tunnel ot the Granby
mines, work on whioh hae been
proceeding sinoe last fall. It will
take the portal of thie tunnel about
1500 feet from the No. 2 shaft of
the Old Ironsides mine the grade
being about five per cent. The
tunnel will be widened and improved as fast as possible, so as tr
get it into shape for praotioal use
The Great Northern Phoenix railway survey reaches the mouth of
the tunnel.
A diamond drill was taken over
to the Rathmullen group in Sum'
mit oamp thiB week from here.
Knight and Stone'will do some
testing for the Rathmullen people
on their group of claims, on whioh
development work has been pro
oeeding lately in a quiet way.

TO BE, OR NOT TO BE, THAT IS THE QUESTION.
MAY SOLVEJHE PROBLEM
Columbia River Water for Concentrators.
POWER COMPANY IS TAKING A HAND
Details of the Scheme—How and Why It Can Be
Successfully Attempted by the Local
Company.
Help is ooming in an unexpected
direction to those mines 'which
are about put in ooncentrators. So
far the World has discussed the
water question from the point of
view of the municipality handling
the question itself with the possible
co-operation of the mines, deriving
its supply from the headwa ters ol
the various creeks around and
above Rossland. But there is another source of supply whioh is the
Columbia river and there is a company which has the neoessary power for getting it into the oity and
that is the Weet Kootenay Power
oompany.
It is evident tbat if the mineB
ereot concentrators in the vicinity
of Rossland, that these mills will
want eleotrio power. Further they
will require power to hoist the ore
from the mines to supply these
concentrators. Henoe it is directly
to the interest of the West Kootenay Power oompany to help the
mines in every possible way, for in
doing so it helps itself by creating
a market for its power. Tbis is
more emphatically the case if Robb<
land is lost as  far as its lighting
iB concerned, as Nelson has been
lost.
Now the West Kootenay Power
company has a plant calculated
for a 34 feet head of * ater, and to
give on that 1000 horse power.
Bat thiB Ib at the old rating whioh
is anywhere from 30 to 40 per cent
less than the modern rating to
same plant. Moreover for five
months in the year the Kootenay
river is so swollen that there is
much more than a 34 foot head of
water. Hence for those five months
without putting in more plant,
and costing huge sums of money,
the Weet Kootenay Power oompany, is in a position to supply the
necessary power for pumping from
the Columbia river direotly into
Rossland.
It must also be remembered that
the time when the Kootenay is in
flood is juet time when the water
is lowest in tbe mountain streams
surrounding RoBBland. The job of
pumping waler 2000 feet up a bill
side ia no light one but could prob
bly be accomplished with two
pumping stations between here and
Trail.

A NBW PLEA.
The request of the Lighting Company, that the City Counoil do not
publish their figures, is oertainly a
strange one. It is more than a request, for they state they are advised by the contract, that they
an within their rights in making
thia a conditions of giving the city
those accounts whioh the contract
calls for. ThiB was coupled witb a
remonstrance on the unseemly
baste oi the City Council. After
muoh stirring up the World got
Harry Daniel last year to bring
the matter up in council, which he
did at the beginning of November
last. The matter was confined (o
» notice cf motion for many weeks,
and thus hung upon the public
notice board. Finally it wae
brought up around Christmas last,
and ths mayor consented, protest*
ing as then the anti-oelicesB of tht
whole thing, to send the company
ft notioe saying that the City Council would want to inspect the ac
counts after the beginning of February. The notioe waB sent by tbe
City Solicitor. But a further no.
tioe was apparently needed, and i
ia the only notice of whioh the
Lighting Company has taken note
of. This waB dated about the beginning of February. Nest the
Lighting Company want the whole
of April to prepare the acoounts.
That is to say three months after
they were- legally due to render
tbem. The end of April comes
•nil no further motion is made by
the Lighting Company. Finally a
bumble and patient Council in
atructs the Solicitor to begin man
damus proceedings. Then the
Company moves. It had fixed
April 26 for the final date, and the
City Solioitor made arrangements
with an auditor for looking over
the books. The Company now
protests against tbe haste shown
by the Counoil. Further, it wants
the date fixed for the 28th, which
ie the earliest day on whioh the
auditor appointed by the City may
oome and not go over the aooounts,
but approach the Lighting Company (humbly, of course, and with
bat in hand) and negotiate with
them for some subsequent date at
whioh he might look over the ao
counts, sworn statements as to
whioh, it is understood, are not to
be submitted. But not even this is
to be allowed, unless tbe counoi
promises to keep the amount of
oapital invested and the profits a
secret.
At the time of tbe present com
pany being granted a franohise for
five years, it was stated the busi
neas was not a very profitable one,
and that the City could not enter
into it with success. After five
years the state of the company's
books would show whether it would
pay the oity to take over the light
as it was then taking over the
water (admittedly then a losing
business, but which has since paid
handsome profits,) Now the time
haa oome. The present City Coun
nil waa eleoted with the acquisition
of the Lighting Franchise, if practicable, tbe obief plank in their
platform. Almost every member
of the Council is pledged on thie
point. But tbe question of acquiring or not acquiring the plant does
not rest in their hands. They
would be foolish men to assume
any euch responsibility, even if it
did. It rests in the hands of the
people who gave the franchise un
der certain set conditions, none too
favorable for themselveB, one of
wbioh demanded an accounting al
the end of four years and six
months, bo that notice oould be
given within four years and ten
months, now witbin 12 days of
elapsing. Now tbe Lighting Com
pany pietend that this accounting
oannot be made to the people. If
it is not made, how oan the citizens
make up their minds as to whether
a renewal oi the franohise should
be granted or not? Furthermore, if
it is not done and the Lighting
franchise is renewed without an
appeal to the people (whioh apparently is not legally necessary)
tbe City Council may rest assured
that many of the citizens will be
hard to convinoe as to the absolute
integrity and purity of their motives. And there should not be a
member of that Counoil who should
be able to bear for one moment
the slur upon his personal honor.

Police Officer Stops a Justice Without a Social Introduc*
tionl
The times are out of joint,
says the Viotoria Progress. -Scarcely had the shock of tbe deplorable
Kamloops inoident, which is really
non inter Christianos nomin*
andum, died away, before one of
the Justioes of the Supreme Court
naa stopped in broad daylight by a
a detective in plain olothes, who
demanded hi* name, surname and
. titles and a variety of other things
like that. The said justice had
been oaught in flagrante delioto
and was trotting his horse aoross
a certain bridge within the limits
of this city against the bylaw in
inch oase made and provided and
against the peace of His Worship
Mayor Barnard, his panama bat
and dignity. Ths justioe aforesaid, instead of asking the officer
how he dared speak to him without an introduction, proceeded in
all due humility to avow his identity, whereupon he was permitted
to proceed and bis name waB
enrolled in a little book along
with oertain other of His Majesty''
lieges, both male and female as the
oase may be.
Now, my lords, how long shall
these things be? By our halidom
—we are not quite sure what a
halidom is, but let that pass—likewise 'sdeath and gadzooks, shall
the justices of our high court be
treated in this ignoble fashion by
mere solicitors and deteotives in
plain olothes?
It is time to sound the tocsin,
and it we have no tocsin, it is time
to find out why the MoBride government has not bought one, seeing that secondhand tocBins as
good as new oan be brought in any
junk shop in Europe. Verily evil
days have befallen us. Knighthood is in Flour, likewise in tobacco, whiskey and other things too
numerous to mention, and tbe ermine is not safe from the saoriligi-
ous touoh of minions of the law.
These reflections reoall a tale,
whioh is told apropos of nothing
in particular but beoause it is true
and beoause it illustrates how tbe
faot of being dressed in a little brief
authority affects some minds. A
oertain Justice of the Peace in an
eastern provinoe was onoe walking
down the street, when a man, a
mere oommon man, on ihe sidwal k
oalled out: "Hullo, Judge, are
you on the way to your law shop?"
The Justioe paused and said
severely: 'Mr. Smith, I fine you
$5 for contempt of court." Smith
was taken aback, but managed to
ejaculate, "Why, Judge, your oourt
is not in session." "No matter,"
was the reply, "this oourt is always an objeot of contempt." Now
the Justice of the Peace may have
been right in his own oase, but usually courts are not objects ot contempt, but it is possible to make
tbem so, and nothing will do the
triok sooner than by combining

Mrs. A. G. Creelman has gone
to Regina to join her husband.
Campbell Sweeny of the Bank
Montreal has returned to the ooast,
Bome of the machinery for the
concentrator at the Velvet ie arriving.
The Campbell theatre in the old

Bossland is playing Nelson's
second team at lacrosse on Empire
Day . ext Tuesday.
It is understood that the Elmore
people are in treaty for yet another
plant in Roesland.
Tbe Ladies of the Eastern Star
bad a pleasant danoe at the Ma*
sonic Hall last evening.
The general admission to the
Private Seoretary has been reduced
la order to admit the youngsters.
The body of the late Ralph Har
ton will be shipped for interment
to San Franoisoo tomorrow morning.
Tbe Le Roi will probably adopt
the oommon sense proceeding and
treat their mill in Rossland on
their own property.
Roesland is full of festivities this
week because of the determination
of the Le Roi to build a concentrator to treat 600 tons daily.
Manager Parrish returned from
Spokane last night in permanent
Oharge of the Le Roi, rumours to
the contrary notwithstanding.
There waB an eleotion of officers
last night for the Rangers oompany
association with W. P. Dockerill
president and George Dunn secretary.
Professor Blockberger and e
party left for the Kingstone mine,
near Camborne, wbioh the Professor has bonded for $100,000, this
morning.
Tonight the Private Secretary
tomorrow night St. George's danoe
and a Thoroughbred Tramp, Saturday night another play. It-is a
poor heart that never rejoices.
Manager Kirby is attending a
meeting of tbe executive of the
Provinoial Mining Association in
Nelson. He will probably move
for the acquisition of water rights
tor industrial purposes by municipalities.
But even this would not be
necessary except in the dryest
reason of the year. Trail oreek
could be dammed in more than one
place for a reBervoir A fifty horse
power motor would probably
suffice for pumping water up from
a conveniently situated reBervoir
on Trail oreek, whioh gathers all
the water pumped from the mines.
A reservoir oould be plaoed in Little Sheep oreek say near the Flossie
L whioh would help matters. Another might be placed at the foot
of 0. K. oreek and small motors
could send water up from these.
A dam on Stoney creek ie feasible
at no great oost which would help
out without even pumping.
Approaohed with regard to this
matter, Manager Campbell of the
West Kootenay Power oompany,
did not desire to talk, but admitted
that the facts are as stated above
with regard to the situation, and
that he had been considering the
matter, but refused to give any details, sb he thought the matter premature for the moment.
If the oity will not take up the
matter, and it haB had ample opportunity for years past, it ought
loyally to baok a company whioh
is willing to do it, and not play
dog in the manger. If the Counoil
bas not faith in the immediate
future, it is pleasing to find that a
oompany of standing has. If the
oity will not risk the investment
for the sake of the returns, it cannot begrudge them to a oompany
that will. Immediate aotion is
wanted, or surely the concentrators
will be taken out of Roseland.
Another advantage will be the
matter, if arranged in the manner
indioated, will sidetrack impend-
iug litigation with the Gooderham
properties.
Soon Got Under Control-
No Great Damage Has
Been Done*
There was a bad fire last night
on Washington street, which resulted in the destruction of Naoca-
rati's grooery and of a small empty
building tojthe north, and also in
th e burning of the roof of the Ottawa hotel, together with damage
done both by fire and water to the
upper story.
The oause of the fire ie unknown.
It broke out about half past ten
and by 11 o'olook the fire was under oontrol. For a few minutes it
looked dangerous, but the fire
brigade was fully up to its work
and the danger of the spread
of the conflagration to First avenue
was passed by.
Insurance oovered the damage
done to the stook of the grocery
and there is also insurance for
$2000 on the Ottawa. Tbe corn-;
panies sustaining the loss are the
Ottawa and the London Mutual
whioh are represented here by
Eugene Croteau,
As the Ottawa is just outside the
fire limit there will be no difficult
as to making tbe necessary repairs,

have attained any standing with

greeted with overflowing patronage.
But   "A    Thoroughbred   Tramp"
