a bike ? If not you surely will when you see the
new 1901 model "Cleveland." It is a beauty ! We
have obtained the exclusive agency in the district for
American and Canadian Manufacturers' Association,
and have selected the "Cleveland" ns the best all
around wheel, and will carry a full stock of this manufacture, in both men's and women's. There are a
great many improvements over the 1900 model, and
they are conceded to be the best wheel made. If
however, you are in love with some other make, we
will obtain it for you. We will lie pleased to have
 you call and inspect

_s-. ' m*f
Lieutenant Jack I.eckie. of the
Strathcona Horse, was in the city for a
few hours last night en route to Greenwood, where he will remain for a time.
Mr. Leckie's last visit to Nelson was on
the occasion of the departure of the
Kootenay detachment to join the Stratb-
conas at Ottawa, when the volunteers
were entertained at the Hotel Phair.
Since that time be has gone through a
hard campaign in Africa but appears to
have come through hale and hearty.
During the entire year in Africa he was
in engagements over a score of times,
but escaped without a scratch, and was
also lucky enough to escape the fever
and other Bickness which claimed almost
as many victims as the Boer bullets.
The Kootenay men who have returned
from the front unite in stating that
Lieutenant Leckie was as efficient an
officer as served in tbe corps; and that
the authorities became aware of this fact
ia evident when it is stated that Mr.
Leckie has been recommended for tbe
Distinguished Service Order, a reward
of valor that is sought after almost as
eagerly as the Victoria Cross. The announcement of the granting of the Order
is expected Bhortly.
While decidedly reticent on the sub-
jectof hisown performances, Lieutenant
Leckie does not hesitate to state that the
men from this district under bis command acquitted themselves splendidly.
From the start to the finish of the trying campaign the Strathconas were
ready for business at a moment's notice
and never shirked work. They were
more or leBS of a rough and ready outfit
in camp and on the march, the distinction in this respect between the Strathconas and the Imperial troops alongside
whom tbey served being very marked,
but under fire the sterling qualities of
the men from the west came out, with
the result that tbey won the admiration
and respect of the general officers commanding. The Strathconas were under
the direction and pay of the Imperial
war office. Tbis meant that the men
were rated as Imperial troops and were
senior to any of the colonial corps raised
later, a fact which tbey did not permit
tbe otlier Canadian to overlook. On pay
day. however, the otlier corps had decidedly the best of the situation, for
they drew liberal allowances while the
Strathconas received only the shilling
per day allowed the British "Tommy
Atkins."
The Imperial officers regarded the easygoing manner of the Strathconas indulgently. It was useless for them to
protest, as one staff oliicer learned to
his discomfiture, and the incident is
worth relating. The Strathconas bad
finished their work with General Buller's
division, and were en route south, being
located at a station on the railroad until
trains were procured for their transportation, On parting with the corps, Buller had said: " (iood-by Stratbcoi.as.
Better, braver or more useful men I have
never had the honor to command." The
boys were naturally tickled with the
popular general's commendation; and
the fact that, while lying at the station,
they had stolen two barrels of rum from
a good's train did not tend to subdue
their spirits. Merriment ran high when
a haughty staff ��� .llicer strolled over from
a general's quarters nearby and ordered
all lights out. The men from western
Canada had been complimented by Buller and were full of rum. two factors
which did not make the staff officer's
order acceptable. The lights were not
extinguished and the first thing that
happened was that one of the boys from
the Kootenays shot out the officer's lantern with a bullet from a six shooter.
This started the ball and in two minutes
the entire outfit was outdoors picking off semaphore lights anil playfully shooting the windows out ol the
railroad depot. The fusilade of shots
aroused the entire camp and in a few
minutes several thousand troops bad
stood to arms in anticipation of an attack by tbe  Boers.     Lieutenant   Leckie
and other officers of the squadron were
hurriedly summoned and quieted the
outfit. Next day the officials rustled up
cars and packed the Strathconas down
the line as fast as possible.
Lieutenant Leckie gives a hitherto unwritten chapter of tbe history of Beres-
fore, who enlisted at Nelson and is now
captain in Lord Kitchener's Bodyguard
Beresford went sick soon after leaving
Capetown and never was iu a skirmish.
He went to Durban, sewed a couple of
strrs on his tunic and announced that he
was an officer. The real facts leaked
out and Beresford was slipping into it
peck of trouble when he secured his
commission. Pyni, who enlisted at Nelson, was an officer's orderly until he received a commission in the artillery. He
was killed in his first engagement after
securing the rank.
In common with other returning
volunteers, Lieutenant Leckie regards
Canada as a more promising field for the
average man than South Africa.���Nelson

BAPTIST   CHURCH   CONCERT.
The concert in the Baptist church last
night was given to a large and appreciative audience. All the numbers on the
programme were well rendered. Mr.
Kauffmann, Mr. Davles and Mr. and
Mrs. Millis received hearty encores.
The serenade, by the double male
quartette, was one ol the best numbers
in a really good entertainment. Mrs.
Travis, Mrs. Methot and Prof. Kauffmann were tbe accompanists.
TWOCOMMITTEDFORTRUL
MR. COLLINS RETURNS
The Phoenix Chinese Trouble Came
Up Before Magistrate Norris
Yesterday.
Yesterday afternoon in the city hall,
before W. II Norris, J. P., M. H. Roy,
John Meagher and Kred Durelle of
Phoenix were tried for the crime of "unlawful assembly" in that city on the 5th
day of January last. On that date John
L. Parker, superintendent of the Stem-
winder mine in Greenwood camp, hired
a Chinaman in (Ireenwood and drove
up to Phoenix with him. This fact wns
telephoned from Greenwood to Phoenix
and a crowd of about two hundred men
and boys met Mr. Parker at the western
extremity of tbe town, took the Chinaman out of the sleigh and sent him
down the hill. Previous to tbis time
Mr. Parker bad a Jap in his employ as
cook and general servant. The Jap left
Phoenix and Mr. Parker hired a Chinaman. The people of Phoenix Btarted
out. with tbe determination not to allow
Oriental labor in that city and have been
successful thus far.
In his evidence yesterday Mr. Parker
stated that be had a revolver in his
possession and fully intended to shoot
if interfered with, and would bave done
so bad the gun not been taken from him
by the crowd. Prom this it will be
seen that the information had been laid
against the wrong person, If Mr. Parker, as he stated in evidence, went from
(ireenwood to Phoenix, carrying a mm,
and with the intention of shooting, it
must appear tn every right-minded person that his was a premeditated Intention of breaking the peace by shooting
into any gathering of citizens whom he
might meet on the public highway and
perhaps killing some of them. This
looks very much like a deliberate intention of committing murder.
Two witnesses gave evidence that
Meaghrehad not been off his own premises, a quarter Of a mile distant, during
the afternoon of disturbance. One witness gave evidence thai Hoy was among
those who attacked Parker and the
Chinaman. This Hoy denied on oath.
No evidence was given implicating Durelle, except hisown statement that he
was in the crowd.
The magistrate dismissed the case
against Meagher and committed Hoy
and Durelle for trial.
Pringle in Whiteside appeared for the
prosecution and It. B. Kerr tbe defence.

From   the    East ��� Montreal
People Sore.
HIGH  ASSAYS FROM RAMBLER
W. T, Smith is   Back���Ore in the
Dewey Group���Athelstan Shipping Regularly
Geo. II. Collins returned Wedneseay
from a business trip to the east, taking
in Montreal, Toronto and other eastern
centers. Mr. Collins found the Montreal people particularly sore against
British Columbia, they having been
burned by Republic, Payne, and other
investments that have not come up to
their expectations. None of the properties in which Montreal people are interested are located in the Boundary
district, excepting the B. 0., but as the
B. C. stock is not on the market the
general public are not interested in it,
and therefore very little is known about
the only mine in the country from which
Montreal capital is receiving dividends.
East of Montreal, in Quebec, New York,
Boston, and St. John, N. B., people were
more favorable to mining investments
in British Columbia fn St. John Mr.
Collins found the business men more
progressive and conversant with mining
than in any of tbe otlier cities visited.
St. John capital is working several
mines in Colorado, and also in Nova
Scotia. A mine in Montana, owned by
St. John people, was recently sold to
W. A. Clark of Butte for $1,100,000,
I A mining man is therefore understood
when he talks mines to the business
men of St. John. Mr. Collins' trip was
a satisfactory one in every respect.
The crosscut from the 100-foot level
on the Rambler, Summit camp, is in a
distance of 158 feet and good ore is being
taken out.
The Athelstan mine, in Wellington
camp, is now making regular shipments
to the Boundary Palls smeller, from two
to three car.- of ore being ihe daily
shipment.

SATURDAY, MARCH  30. 1901.
Tn the Provincial bouse John Houston
of Nelson is endeavoring to abate the
delegation pest. He has asked the
premier " Is it the intention of the government to bring down legislation to
suppress the delegation nuisance during
sessions of the legislative assembly?"
Mr. Houston's question may be for the
purpose of creating amusement in the
house, but should he be successful in
suppressing the professional delegate,
he will have conferred a lasting benefit
on the people of Britisli Columbia. Annually hundreds of delegates are sent to
Victoria to support schemes which are
only beneficial to railway corporations
or cbartermongers. These corporation
heelers, (usually in the pay of some
company wishing special legislation from
the government,) work up a little excitement in the locality in which they
reside, get a few of their friends together,
and are appointed delegates. They go
to Victoria ns representatives of some
one of the interior districts, while in
reality they are tbe hired "boosters" of
a company asking for legislation for the
purpose of robbing the public. The
majority of the newspapers in the west
advocating what they were pleased to
call "the open door policy," handled
special advertising from the Crow's Nest
Coal company at the time of such advocacy. One delegate to the meeting of
the associated boards of|trade at Greenwood, had himself specially appointed a
delegate from one of the boards of trade,
the regularly appointed delegate coming
bere as alternate. After the discussion
on the B. C. Southern the special delegate left for the Coast, taking no further
part in the proceedings of the convention. A large delegation is being sent
from Kootenay and Yale to Ottawa for
the purpose of asking the government
to pay a bounty of %b per ton nn Slocan
ores, Tbe railway fare, and, we suppose,
other expenses of the delegates, are being paid by parties interested in getting
the bounty. If the ore of the Slocan
will not pay the ordinary mining and
treatment expenses, the mines should
be abandoned.
GOVERNMENT   OWNERSHIP.
The progress in the east of public education on the transportation question
is indicated by the following article in
the Canadran Manufacturer:
"There is probably no important
question upon which public opinion has
crystalized more rapidly than that of
the public ownership of railways and the
reception of Premier Ross' timely suggestion has thus far been so favorable
that there is little doubt that he will
carry it into effect with the fullest
measure of popular approval. * * *
Recent developments in railway management sufficiently show the danger
which menaces the trade of this country
at the hands Of great railway corporations by the diversion of traffic from
Canadian ports to Portland and Boston.
The trade of the undeveloped regions of
New Ontario is naturally tributary to
Toronto and the western peninsula of
the province, and it is of the first importance that ampie safeguards should
be thrown around any scheme involving
the building of the road with public
money, to prevent tbe diversion .of
traffic into otlier channels.
It is no less desirable to secure cheap
transportation rates and prevent the extortion so generally practised by railway
corporatiins.
When a subsidy is granted at so much
a mile the invariable tendency is to construct as large a mileage as possible in
order to secure the government subsidy,
and to sell the bonds of the company,
most charters giving them power to
issue bonds in the proportion of $20,000
per mile. �� * * The management
fix the rates sufficiently high to cover
the interest on bonds, sold generally at
a heavy discount, as well as on tbe government subsidy, and in addition tbey
figure on paying a dividend on their
common stock. Until this point is
reached all expostulations as to the
extortionate figures charged are met by
the answer that the line does not pay,
and that, therefore, they cannot reduce
them. Under government ownership
all that tbe road would require to earn
above running expenses would be the
actual cost of construction. It is estimated that the Teniiscaming road could
be built to James Hay at a cost of $15,-
000 a mile; the sum voted by the
Dominion government to the original
holders of the charter covering a considerable portion of the route is $3,200.
Deducting this from the estimated cost
of construction would leave $11,800 per
mile as the amount on which interest
would have to be paid out of the receipts,
as against a bond issue of $20,000 per
mile and possible divedends utider the
system of private management."

THE   OUTLOOK.
No one who lias been watching the
trend of events for the past few months
can fail to be impressed with the conviction that the outlook for British Columbia is very rosy indeed. It now
seems settled beyond all doubt that the
immense coal fields in the Crow's Nest
district will be developed on a huge
scale. What this means to Kast Kootenay, and, in fact, to the whole of southern British Columbia, may be left to the
imagination���suffice to say that an era
of remarkable progress and prosperity
will be ushered in if the statements referring to contemplated undertakings
made by the officials of the coal company
are to be believed. Then, again, we
think it may be taken as a certainty
that the near future will see the establishment at some point in southern
Britisli Columbia of a lend refinery,
which will give a great and permanent
stimulous to the mining industry and
permit of the thorough development of
many properties which are now lying
idle. The building of the Coast-Koot-
enay road, which iB now, all admit, assured, will also tend greatly to benelit
the Kootenays. Taken altogether, we
think there is every justification for a
feeling of confidence that stirring times,
fruitful in progress and prosperity, are
immediately before us. -Nelson Miner.
STRIKES  A  RICH   FIND.
" I was troubled for several years with
chronic indigestion and nervous debility," writes F. J. Green, of Lancaster, N. H. " No remedy helped mc until I began using Electric Bitters, which
did me more good than all the medicines
I ever used. They have also kept my
wife in excellent health for years. She
says Electric Bitters are just splendid
for female troubles ; and that they nre a
grand tonic and invigorator for weak,
run down women. No other medicine
can take its place in our familv." Try
them. Only 50c. Satisfaction gnsmtnteed

WORK   ON   THE   BRUCE.
Work lias been resumed on the Bruce.
This property, which is situate close to
Midway, lias bad considerable work
done on it already. A tunnel has been
run about 250 feet and tbe present work
consists of extending it to a greater
length. Some line ore has been taken
out of the tunnel, but as yet the main
ledge lias not been encountered.
Last week Sydney M. Johnson, P, L.
8., of Greenwood, agent for the Stratford Exploration A Development company, an eastern syndicate owning a
large interest in the Bruce, visited the
property in company with S. W. Hall, a
Kossland mining expert. Mr. Johnson
was very much pleased with the result
of the recent development, so much so
that a force of men is likely to be kept
at work until the main lead is tapped.
Mi. Hall was also greatly impressed
with the property and is of the opinion
that the tunnel will only have to be run I
a short distance farther in order to strike
the lead.
In speaking of Mr. Hall's visit to the
Boundary country, the Kossland Miner
of a recent date has the following to say:
" Mr. S. W. Hall returned on Sunday
night from a visit to the Boundary
country and the Norway mountain section, lie went to the Boundary for the
purpose, of examining the Bruce group,
near Midway, and while there took advantage of the opportunity to inspect
the mines iu Phoenix camp. In tbe
Bruce group be found a very fine showing of chalcopyrite ore. There has not
been enough work done to determine
tbe extent of the properties, although it
is a fair looking prospect."���Midway
