Nelson, July 31.—The sluicing

now well on its way towards completion.
Last year there were a large
number of stumps imbedded in the
slit brought down by the oreek
when in freshet, and these required
considerable blasting to loosen
them. This year there iB only
mud and gravel to wash out and
this has proved comparatively easy.
When work was commenced the
bed of the pond above the dam was
oovered to a depth of nearly fifteen
feet. This has all been broken up,
arid only a few isolated islands
remain, whioh are rapidly being
washed out by the stream of water

There was a stormy scene in the

hurled at the premier from the opposition benches. The Bitting was
suspended, but the scenes were repeated on ita resumption, and ultimately being unable to obtain t
hearing, the premier handed the
olerk of the house a written motion
moving the reviewing of the bill.
When the obstructionists became
aware of this move, a couple of the
members of the Kossuth party
stormed the presidential tribune,
snatched the paper from the clerk's

Two prizes will be given at the Alhambra Bowling alley every two weeks for

treasurer, John Daly, and Manager
N. E. Z'viekey, were received and
adopted with the greatest possible
unanimity. The old board of directors, viz: Messrs. A. F. Mc-
Claine, J. D. Chaplin, D. Daly,
Fred Coolidge, J. J. Humphrey, B.
W. McPhee and H. Coruvell was
eleoted. A. F. McClaine will be
president, J, D. Chaplin vice president, John Daly secretary-treasurer, and the old manager, N. B. I
Zwicky, was again appointed.
Considerable new work is proposed and the board of directors
are to decide to what extent developments will be carried on. Surface workings will be carried on
rather extensively during the season and one and perhaps two fine
ore bodies will be thoroughly exploited. Until this new work has
been laid out it is not intended to
appropriate any of the company's
reserve funds to the payment of
dividends.
It will be tbe policy of the directors to have a strong reserve
fund available for emergencies.
The manager's report was very
satisfactory in respect to present
conditions at the mines. The laBt
two months' BhipmentB were .particularly encouraging, over fifty

The brothers Rumble together
with Hepp were discharged from
custody today.
There was not a scintilla of evidence against them.
The story of the case is interesting from the sidelight it throws
upon police methods.
It seems that the prisoners were
first held on suspicion of being connected with the diamond robbery
of Sid Scott. Somebody said that
one of the four had been seen in the
vioinity of the house during the
time of the robbery was alleged to
have taken place. This turned out
to, be mere hearsay, There was no
oharge, therefore, preferred on tbis
account. Their place of residence
was then searched and razors
and watohes were found there.
Now razors and watohes were missing from the store of B. Pannett
at the time of the fire last Sunday
morning. It iB true that thi razors
and watches were not new, but
then, of course, Bannett kept a
second hand store. Two new pairs
of boots and two new pairs of suspenders were found amongst the
four men. These at all events,
were not Becond hand and to be
sure Bannett also sold new goods.
The conclusion so sagely arrived
at was promptly acted upon and
tbe men arrested. No attempt was
made to warn the men that anything they said would be used
against them, but the Chief of Police instantly proceeds te a oross-
examination, a thing which has
again and again been severely reprimanded from the bench and in
the press, as quite oontrary to
proper procedure. But evidence
was necessary.
The men were remanded from
yesterday. The press informed
the publio that the gang of depredators whioh had been infesting
the town and depriving tbe polioe
and aids from their natural rest
for some weeks back, had been
arrested by the ever vigilant police.
The case was worked np and came
up for hearing this morning.
Patrolman Stewart swore to
finding the boots and suspenders
in the men's shack. Also to discovering some collars under a
neighboring shanty. Chief Bradshaw then told how he had arrested the men. B. Bannett said he
had certainly sold goods like unto
these from hie store. He oould not
say whether he had sold the goods
or whether they had been stolen
from him. Mrs. Bannett deponed
likewise.
J. A. Macdonald for the defenoe
had made it interesting for the
police on cross examination, but
chose to call no evidence in rebut-

CONSERVATIVE PLATFORM
al
Of the states that are  now   free
from  debt,  says the Washington
Post, three have achieved that freedom by laws whioh placed the burden on corporations.    West Virginia and New Jersey   have  been
lifted out of debt by the Bomewhat
dubious scheme  of  inducing   big
corporations    doing   business   in
other states to pay them handsome
fees for   the  privilege of gaining
and exercising powers not granted
by other states.   Illinois made  a
bargain,    when   a    oharter    was
granted   to   the   Illinois   Central
Railway oompany, that a per cent
of the gross earnings of the  road
should be paid to the state.     This
has been sufficient to entirely wipe
out the state debt and is each year
adding to a Burplus to be used in
the administration of state affairs
and a consequent reduction of the
taxes upon the people.   The debts
of the other three states have been
removed by careful administration
of affairs by public officials, in response to a demand from the people that expenses should be kept
down and every economy practiced
- so long as the state owed anything.
The western   farmer   detests  and
fears debt, and   his   sentiment
that point has been reflected in the
administration of state affairs   un
til the debts of all the states west
of the Alleghenies are now really
trivial.
There has been muoh buncombe
of late.especially in the old country,
about the freedom of trade. Granted that the whole of the world was
in state of freetrade, the chances
are that the theory would be demonstrated, i. e., that it would inure
to the benefit of the whole of the
world. Not neoessarily any one
portion of it. Free trade within
the Dominion is a good thing for
Canada in general, but it does not
work equally for all portions. British Columbia merchants would like
put up a border tariff against
ually free trade would be attained,
with the Empire so long a stride in
advance,that the resistless energy of
itB people would never allow of its
supremacy in commerce to be again
challenged. Thus the praotical
freetrader today is Chamberlain,
just as trusts are paving the way
to socialism. The '.theoretical free
trader will soon have no trade to
throw open and his beautiful theO'
ry and his snarling dogmatism will
avail him nothing. A praotical
man is worth two theorists any
day.

PATRONIZE YOUR OWN.
Whilst  honest   competition   in
trade is not only fair but essential
to the welfare of the purchasing
public, says the New Glasgow, N
S., Times, and its utterances apply
looally, there is a form of competition   which,  though   permissable,
ought not to be   courted   by local
oonsumers.     New    Glasgow,  and
every town in the provinoe, has its
local merchants to invest capital
in purchasing goods for the specific
purpose of catering to the   publio
tastes.   The majority of theBe men
are   natives of   the   town,   whose
families have helped in the building of industries, etc. The whole of
them are now residents   and   ratepayers, contributing very largely
to the town's treasury.   Their success adds to the prosperity ol  the
town, whilst their failure tends   to
impoverish town affairs.   The business men of the community are the
very life pulse of that community
their  prosperity ensures   growth,
expanBion.and everything essential,
to the well-being of the  town.   So
widely recognized have these truths
become that responsible bodies of
men have been appointed to watch
and guard the interests of the local
business men.   Ordinances are en
acted by council boards for the pro
teotion of a class so invaluable   to
the town.   If a stranger visits the
oommunity    for   the   purpose  of
wresting trade from   local dealers
the  law   requires   that   he   shall
guarantee the town against loss by
contributing a significant sum to-
___
many of the goods of the east. The
competition of the east often seriously handicaps the western merchant. Living is higher, consequently labor is dearer, and the
price of commodities must be often
increased to a point where it is
really cheaper to pay freight on
the same commodities from the
east. But to do this is to hurt the
community, by driving .its merchants out of business. Of course
this might be alleviated by abolishing the duty against the United
StateB and permitting British Columbia merchants to prooure goods
from the south. It would be good
for British Columbia, but it would
ba bad for Canada, which would beoome the dumping ground of the
Yankee manufacturer. Likely
enough, however, it might prove
that free trade would be a better
thing for.the whole of North America regarded as a unit, leaving out
Mexico. But that would prove of
small solace to Canadians, and
Buch a polioy would hardly build
up the country. There would be
no long sea voyages to act as an
import duty, Similarily many
industries in the United States
are handioapped by the import
duties on various articles. It would
certiinly advantage those interests
to have free trade with Europe,
but would it benefit North America?
Were the whole world thrown open
after a while manufacturers would
adjust themselves to tbe new conditions, and it is probable that for
the whole world the general benefit would be great. But it would
not by any means follow that any
one country would occupy that
relative place in the world's trade
whioh it enjoys today. It might
advance but it might recede.
It is for thiB very reason that
Chamberlain's fiscal policy recommends itself to the student of political economy. Seeing that all
things are relative, he Bees that
any sudden readjustment of general policy would inevitably cause
a dislocation of the ti orld's trade.
And commerce alone would not be
permitted to allow matters to right
themselves through the lapse of
time. Much misery would ensue
and the State would be compelled
by the people to interfere. Buti
Chamberlain's policy is first for a
preferential system within the
Empire gradually developing into
free trade. One by one the great
nations of the earth would be foroed
to ask   for reciprocity, till event-

COKE THE DRAWBACK
Dividends   Estopped   Because of Constant Lack
of Fuel.
In an interview given to the
Montreal Gazette by S. H. C. Milner, president of the Qranby company, that gentleman, who has just
returned from an extended visit to
the company's mines and smelter
in the Boundary country, is reported as follows:
"I said that if they would give
us all the coke required we would
loon give a dividend," was, the
answer made by S. H. C. Miner,
who has just reached the city from
the weBt acoompaniod by his assistant, A. C. Fiumerfelt. Barring the
uncertainty of the ooke supply, the president of the
Granby Consolidated seems eminently satisfied with the present
oondition of affairs, both at Grand
Forks, where the Granby smelter
is located, and at Phoenix, the site
of the company's immense ore
bodies. Four furnaces, he said,
were now running, and two more
are well under way. In fact,
in six weeks' time, the president
says the Granby smelter will be in
a position to treat from 2000 to
2500 tons of' ore per day, while
there will be sufficient equipment
at the mines to produce a daily
Bupply of rock equalling 5000 tons.
Then he says, all construction
work will cease, and people will
understand the importance of this
statement when it is known that
the Granby company have spent
this year at the smelter and at the
smelter and at the mines no less
than $300,000, all of which has
taken irom the earnings of the
oompany.
Being asked as to the prospects
of a dividend in the near future,
Mr. Miner repeated that as soon as
the coke question was solved, the
dividend matter would be no longer a question of speculation, but of
calculation.
The president is a man of action
rather thau words, yet he evidently
feels muoh gratified at the result of
the recent visit to the scene of the
Granby's operations by the Amerioan copper kings and at the verdict
of thesi experts, which has so
abundantly vindicated Mr. Miner's
polioy all along the line.
"Is there anything in the story,"
he was asked, "that the Americans
will probably secure heavier holdings in the Granby?"
"Of course there is," was the
president's prompt reply, "and they
will probably secure control, as
Canadians will never fully realize,
until it is too late, that it is the
greatest proposition of the kind on
tbe continent."
Already one of the vessels of this
station has been sent to tbe China
station from Esquimalt and never
replaced. At the commencement
of the campaign which resulted
from the Boxer rising in China,
II.M. S. Arothusa was dispatched to
China and no vessel has relieved
her.
Meanwhile additions are being
made to tbe land defences of Esquimalt. At Signal Hill fort, where
some 92 guns will be placed, work
is being carried on industriously
and this week the Admiralty has
purchased a property between
Esquimalt lagoon and Parson's
bridge, where large and modern
powder magazines, plans for whioh
are out, will be ereoted.
The Palace has the  only   first-
olass bowling alley in the oity.

E. W. WiddowBon has made an
assay of six samples of ore from the

to the ton. One average sample
from the, ore dump ran $129 to the

They had been charged with being

The first thing the police had to do
was to show the property was stolen
and the next that the accused were
in poBBession of it. All he had succeeded iu doing was that he had
made an unwarrantable irruption
into the men's residenoe and had
convicted thom of being in possession of somebody's property. Presumably it was their own. There
was nothing to show that it belonged to anyone else. If such

OUR SUMMER CARNIVAL
Lacrosse Teams to Play
Here - Programme Is
Filling Up.
Preparations are in full swing
for the summer carnival. There
was a protracted meeting of the
oxecutivo committee last evening
at whioh it was decided to have
the Vancouver team up from tbe
coast and to get Nelson to play
them paying the exponseB of both
teams which will amount to about
$1000. Two matches are looked
forward to.'the first occurring on
the first day between Nelson and
Vancouver and the second between
a conjoint team of Rossland and
Nelson against the coast team.
Maxy Crow was in evidence with
a glove fight for the running of
which he will donate $100 to the
Carnival funds. He will hang up
a purse of .500 to be fought for.
The glove contest will probably
come off at the rink.
There will be a dance given in
Miners Union hall on the one night
and as an alternative amusement a
play by the Rossland amateurs at
the Opera House. It is suggested
that either the Rossland amateurs
give a performance on both nights
or that the Nelson Dramatio olub
be invited to occupy the stage on
one of tbe evenings. With two
performances, a dance and a glove
contest, there will be plnnty of opportunity fcr the excursionists to
enjoy themselves, while their very
number will prevent any dashing
of events. Those who do not oare
the one thing can go to the other,
and there will thus be plenty of
amusement for all.
The school children are also
being looked after, and their pro.
cession and singing will form a
pretty feature of the whole pageantry of the Carnival.
