Nelson, British Columbia, Tuesday, December 19, 1899.
Tenth Year
No Evidence From the Local
Miners' Union-
A SHORT FINAL SESSION
J. Eoderick Robertson GiveBfome Interesting   Testimony���The   Eilverton
Resolution Not Endowed.
Commissioner Clute concluded liis
enquiry at the Courthouse yesterday
into the operations ot the eight-hour
law in this district. Thero wore not
a dozen nersons iu conrt, aud the Miners' Union was represented solely by
Mr. Waltar Smith, who informed the
court that he wus not n member ot the
Nelson Union���Silverton wns bis headquarters.
Mr. Olnte asked if any miner wished
to be examined, mid invited Mr. Smith
to take the stand.
Mr. Smith conmlied with apparent
reluctance. He declared thnt ho was a
stranger in town, and belonged to the
Miners' Union nf Silverton
Mr. Clute put into witness' hand a
oopv of the Nelson Miner of Juno 1(1,
containing a resolution of the Miners' Union of Silverton, and asked if
he con Id verify same.
Witness snid he was not present
when the resolution in question was
passed, but he understood thnt saob n
resolution wis adopted, adding:
"That resorption does nut express the
vie-vs of the miners. 1 am told ihm
there were ouly eleven persons present
when it was pissed, and them nre
about 800 miners in tiie riisirwt These
elovou men didn't represent the views
of the Minors' Union as a body."
Aiii't'tii? other clauses in the ?csolnr
tion referred  to   were   the following:
"Resolved, that we will not love our
enemies; that we will not turn the
other cheek; that we believe that retaliation is light.
"In conclusion we firmly declare
that we are good and trne citizens organized tn secure justice mid not to
wrong men ; I ut we are not fools, and
we will not reject the use of means
effectual, just because they may not
be conventionally popular.''
Mr. J .1. Campbell ., lulled to kiinw
if the Miners' Union of the district
were a part of the parent organization,
and if so, was this res ilution approved by tha* body.
Mr. Clute said that he hud evidence
to show that while each district union was empowered to deal with business affecting purely its own Bfiotinn
all were snhsidiarv to the Western
Federation of Miners
Mr, Campbell handed in a letter nd-
drtssed to Mr. Fell, of the Athnbnsen
mine It was from tlio Miners' Union of Ni'lson, calling for a conferonoe
between the mine-owners and the men,
and specifying 48 hours in which to
arrange for such meeting "or you will
bear  the consequences "
Mr. Campbell: "I would like to
state tbat up to the time of the pass
ing of ihe eight-hour law our management was not awnrc tha' swh legislation was ui der consideration I
made enquiries at that time of the
managers of the principal mines in
the Kootenays and was informed bj
tl.em that the) were not aware of it."
Witness handed, in the report of the
proceedings nf tb.t, LegiBlatnreJof British t iumhiii containing tbe record
of the passage of the eight/hour law ;
also a copy of the bill itself, pointing
out that at the scond reading there
vns no section restricting the hourB of
labor in the mines. The bill, as
amended, however, nnd before passing
its third   reading   limited the hours nf
lubor to eignt hnnrs for underground
work. He nlso submitted figures to
show what tho probable output of the
mines ot tho Slocan would have been
this j ear bad it not been for the trouble over the eight hour lnw The total ontpnt, witness cnnservntivelv estimated at 711,800 tons. This wonld
moan nn expenditure of about 11.000.-
000 nnd about *700,000 might he added
to this if these- ores wero treated In
Canada. These figures only de��lt with
the silver load ores of the sioonn-
thev did not include tho Silver King
or other mines in the Nelson division
Tho expenditure during the lust year
for superintendence, office expenses,
foremen, engineers, firemen and gen
era: expense items at the Silver
King mine was over |20 000. The interest on thecnpi.nl invested at b per
cent would be over *72,000. These
expenses would not he increased had
the output been one-fourth greater than
it was, to anv iipnreciable extent, nor
would the working undcrgroiin 1 men
ton -houi shifts bave made nny noticeable increase ,
Mr. .1. Roderick Robertson, general
manager of the London & Biitish 00-
lnmliin Gnlriiinlris, Ltd , deposed thnt
hiscnmnnny opernte the Ymir mines,
Enterprise mine, and properties in
East Koolenay, Boundary. BtA His
companies are nil British imorpoiateri
ill London and Incused in British UO-
lnmliiii. At the time of incorporation
in 18UU, the aiBUiauce was given  tnnt
the mining laws of the Province wero
I liberal, uml that there were no labor
| troubles. The actual disbursement
apart from mierests given in pait pay-
meni to vendors of properties purchased, amounted to ovct t760,000 in Nelson alone, while the disbursements in
London to svnriieat.es etc , operating in
British Columbia would total a like
sum The company was employing
today about. 75 miners besides about
IM) men on construction work, and
could emplov 200 more miners with
our acquiring any more properties.
Thero are 7.H00 stockholders in the
company, aud it was safe to say that
each of these would on an average represent a household of half a dozen persons. The supply of miners prior' to
the passage of recent labor legislation
was hot sufficient to provide gord practical men for all then existing properties and for new prouerties being exploited. He estimated that had not
labor troubles arisen, 1,000 more men
could have been easily employed iu
British Colnmbia this yenr than were
employed last yoar, and that this
shortage, gained ftnni tho experience
of,thn past three or fonr years, would
necessitate, a largo number oi'miners
being brought into the Province every
jenr-probably 1,000 a ye.ir. Articles
of association, of their several companies nre based nnon a capitalization of
some $4.000,000. He explained the
method of forming British companies,
pointing out its ndvuntages, and said
it was enstcmnry to issue circulars
from time to time, apprising the stock
holders or partners of any salient faots
relating to their property. For example : Such an important mntter as re
striotve legislation nnd sooalled labor
disturbances or troubles is mentioned
so that tho legislative enactments iu
British Columbia have doubtless been
referred to in thousands of such circulars. Tho absence ot nny eight-hour
law in Grent Britain,and the fact that
in none of the cnlouies havo measures
beeu passed interfering witb the right
of individual contract, made investors
confident thnt if ihesemntterswere laid
bed re the legislature of British Columbia relief would be piven. A rec��nt addition to the master and servant act.rendering it illegal to bring persoiiB from
other Provinces into British Columbia
under contra ;t, was nlso considered
injurious to the mining interests. Mr.
Robertson added: "In onr opinion the
passage of the eight-hour lnw.npplyine
only to one branch of mining mid not
npplicable to any other class of underground work, carrying trade, manufacturing nr retnil business of profession, has created a feeling of alarm
and nisfrnst hitherto unknown regard
ing investments in British Cnlumhia.
Money h.is to our absolute knowledge
been diverted in.ntber directions "���
Mr. Clute asked witness' opinion ns
the removal of the duty ou lead.
Mr. Robertson: "I think it would
have a very stimulating effect. It is
held to bo a very unfair inpost. and
oue that, in view of the already heavy
expense that has to be innurred is
sufticienf in many instances tn retard
the development of certain claims
which run high in lead and law in silver and nf er  metals.
Mr. Sm'th asked witness through
Mr. Clute, if he had given the eight-
hour arrangement a fair trial.
Mr. Robertson explained that he
was not a practioal miner, bnt that the
accounts proved conclusively that more
work was done under the ten-hour day
than with eight hours, and tha- the
eight hour system was more costlv.
Ho wonld rather pay 50 cents extra and
have ton ho'irs work. '' We find by
experience," added Mr. Robertson,
"that we got more work done in ten
hours than we do in eight. In Ioahn,
Montana, Washington aud other old
nnd well-established mining countries,
tho miners work ion hours a day, aud
are pi.irl #8 B0. Snrely in these places
if they found it mere advantageous to
work but eight hours, they would havo
ndopied tho system long ago. But
they still work ten hours. Wo bave
not 100 miners her�� for every thousand
they have there, nud yet t ere is no
Objection on ihe part of organized
labor fo working ten hours.
Vtiih regard to working eight and
ten hours, in n new country like this
prospects are being continually oiieuud
up, nud tho cost of bringing in supplies, making trails etc , is great.
Experience has shown th t it is far
more economical in snob instances tn
conv.y as small a quantity as possible
of supplies, and to devote nl] the mciiev
t' developing rhe mine. When men
can only work eight hours ir nntnr
ally retards the work, and makes it
more expensive too.
"I have nnliced a tendency in some
quarters to create ah impress on that
the minors of British Columbia, prior
tn tbo passing of this law, were try
ing to evade a full day's work. In in'
opinion Hie average miner in British
Colnmbia was straight forward and
energetic in earning his day's wage,
and the relations between tho miner
and those for whom he worked were
harmonious and satisfnetory. The con-
riitimis of the n ine were tnken iuto account. Shaft work, or work done in
wet places wns better paid for and no
mnn was culled upcu to work under
dnngerons or unhealthy conditions.
This was Ihe condition of affairs under the old law, and, except in a few
isolated casss. good feeling still prevails.
This practically concluded the sitting so far as the Nelson division is
concerned, and Mr Olnte leaves this
morning for Ymir from wheuco be
will go to Kossland.

London, Dec. 10. ���A dispatch to the
Daily Mail from Naanwport, Cape Col
nny dined Dec. Iti sa.vs: ' The Boers
bionght a hig gun to benr on the Brit
ish near Nnrvaar Kop. The British
pieces were too small to teach the enemy aud after un intermittent artillery
duel, General French withdrew under
shell fire but without losses, to Arundel. ''
London. Dec. II).���The Daily Mail
hears from n hitherto reliable corie-
spondent thnt General Buller, after a
stiff fight, crossed the Tugela River.
The correspondent also states that
General Methuen's communications
are cut.
Kingston. Ont., Dec. 18. ���Addressing the students nf Queen's University
yesterday, Principal Grant declared
that the Canadian Parliament shonld
be called together immediately so that
the vnice of the people of the crisis in
Sonth Afcicti could be heard. These
reveries in the Transvaal, he said, will
make us more united than ever before. <
London, Dec. 1!). ��� (4:40 n. m )���The
War Office has been in communication
with General Sir William Lnckhart,
commander-in-chief in India, with a
view of ascertaining what troops can
be spared from his forces and it is understood that, as a result of these inquiries a force will almoBt immediately leave Bombay for Durban, including four regiments of artillery,
and horse and field batteries.
It is hoped that this force will reinforce General Buller within a
month. The Duke of Connaught visited the War Office yesterday. Since
the appointment of Lord Roberts as
Commander-in-Chief in South Africa,
the question of rank no longer bars
the duke from going to tbe front, and
as he has a strong desire to go it iB
believed that ouly the Queen's reluc-
slice stands in the way. It is not
unlikely that this will be overcome.
Lord Chesham, commanding officer
of the Royal Buckinghamshire Yeomanry has been authorized to organize a force of 3,000 Yeomanry who will
proceed to the Cape. The Yeomanry
troops Bent out , will be drafted bo as
to work together with the mounted
infantry nud mounted militia from
Cannda Bnri Australia.
It is understood that the volunteers
selected will not form a separate
corps, hut will join their linked battalions of the regular forcea in South
Africa.
Throughout the lonntrv volunteers
are responding with the utmost
ulacntv to tne official notice. Lord
Lonsdale says he believes tbo Government will only aciept from 20 to fiO
men frniu each Yeomanry Regiment.
It is asserted that m.mv officers of
tho Volunteer Regiments are offering
to go as troopers^if not accepted as officers.
The TimeB says editorally :
"Lord Roberts will have absolutely
a free band and may he expooted to resume the original plan of campaign
abandoned hy General Buller under
the neeessi'y of  relieving   Dariysuuth.
According to a dispatch from t ape-
town,   General  Sir  Charles Warren,
and his staff have started for Do Aar.
This seems to indicate that the fifth
division will be sent to reinforce Lurri
Metburii, a decision which will meet
with geueral appiovnl, as the opinion
s almost evervwheie held Mint it would
be useless t.i waste any more time by
frittering away men hetweon the
various columns.
The Moining Post in another alarmist article remarks upon the iliffioiilty
of deciding buco a crucial matter and
sa.v s:
'Besides three generals in the Held,
all of whom need to be reinforced,
then ia the rebellion in Oape Colony
to be reconsidered. This makes four
piessing calls on the fifth division.
The question, is who is to decide and I
ou what principle? The Morning Post |
reviewing the various positions of the j
beleaguered cotnmanriants and gam- |
sons snys, "it is seen that the relief of
Ladysmith is thn moat important
emergency and tbat a victory in Nn
tal would change the whole face of
affairs " It also points out the urgent need of having the navy iu rendi-
ncBs ti move ut any moment to protect
the line of communicntinn with Snnth
Africa, suggesting thnt "A quarrel
with some foreign power might come
any day without any Britisli intention
to have one."
Mr. J. B. Robison, tho Sonth African millionaire, writes to tho Daily
Chronicle re-assoiting thai the Boers
have unlimited supplies of animuni. j
ti-n and ample stores of food, and declaring that statements to the contrnry
should be ignored.
No further   news hns  been  received I
from Capetown   bnt   the Cape  Argns
has   a   dispatch from a  correspondent
describing the battle nt Tugela   Riyer, I
who nays:
"General Barton carried the  village.
nf Colenso at the point of the  bayonet
and under a raking tiro."
The few accounts of tho bnttle that
urn vet to hnnd fail tn give an necur-
ate iden, but the statement that General Clerv oommanded destroys, tho
current idea tbat he was eugagid in
some turning movement, and tbat the
Tugela River battle was only part of a
larger scheme of operations.
UNFAILING BRAVERY.
London, Dec. 19. -A correspondent of
the Daily Mail telegraphing from Frer
Cump, Natal, Dec. IS, and describing tbe Tngeln River affair says:
"The Boers iu great force occupied a
strong eutreneheri position, commanding the river aim reaching back about
800 yards from its further side. General Hare's brigade on the left, first
attempted a crossing under a murder-
ons Nordenfeldt and title tiro.
"The Royal Dublin Fusileers, the
Royal Inniskilien Fusileers, the
King's Own Scottish Borderers, nnd
the Connangbt Rangers crossed with
superb and unflinching gallantry, but
tin- position on the other side was
found utterly untenable. The British
sufferert heavily from a perfect huil ol
artillery and shrapnel, while tbeir
own artillery was very badly mauled.
They were therefore obliged to, recross
tbe river.
"On Hie right General Hildyard's
brigade displaying equal heroism, succeeded in entering the village of Co-
lensn. but the Sixth Battery encountered a murderous fire and was compelled to retire, leaving their guns
and ammunition and wagons on the
veldt. The biigade was also obliged
to fall back. Meanwhile General Barton's rigade also failed to take possession of Hlnngwri Hill. The entire
force retired cn Chieveloy. General
Clerv was in command. '

BOUNDARY CREEK NEWS.
London, Deo. 18.���Rear Admiral
Lord Charles Beresford is quoted in an
interview as saying:
"The issue of the war will depend
more upon artillery than anything elso
especially at the siege of Pretoria and
other places, where the biggest battles
aie expected, therefore I urge that
all the naval guns which can be spared
from the reserves and the other ships
be mounted foi field service immediately. This move is necessary as there
are no quick-firing twelve-pour.riers of
1,200 weight in the army The Government should Immediately commission every ship in "A" division of the
navy as needful preoauttOU against any
nation sinking to take advantage uf
Great Britain's condition. No friendly
uutioti could object, t am greatly
pleased ti see General Roberts aud
Genoial Kitebeuer go to the aid of
General Bullet."
London; Dec. 18 ���Mr Geo. .1. Gop-
clien, First Lord nf the Admiralty,
'vhen nistributing   prizes tn volunteers
ainl riflemen in Condon  'onlght, said:
"I little thought when Inorepted his
invitation tlmt I should a kin 8' men to
whom an mpeal has been made to stand
shoulder to Binuloer with the regulars
iu South Africa. The possession nf
960,000 volunteers will he regarded bv
tne country I am sure, as a great element nf seounty, nnd I tun confident
thai thev are ull prepated to do their
duty. The colonies are nlso prepa.-ed
to do their share and Canada and Australia are to lhe fore welcoming the
opportunity to go to the front." (Enthusiastic cheeiing.)
After praising the   great services  of
tbe   na\al   brigade   in    assisting  the
troops in the Suith   African and testi- \
fying to the constant   anxiety of naval |
men to be in the tuicK of the lighting,
Mr. Oosohen said:
"It is impossible to grnnt their desires, although these soldiers and sailors would be glnd tn go to Snuth Africa iu thousand! baoaoee when 120,000
regulars have already left our shores tho
responsibility tor the efficiency of our
navy will be immensely increased.
"1 helieve the preparedness of tbe

hnve not only tn look at South Africa
hut at the situation and nt possible

SEPARATE SCHOOL DISTRIOT.
The City Council yesterday name
into line with the Board of Trade and
the School Board in calling upon the
Government to mako Nelson a separate
m hool district, deed over Block 4(1 for
high school purposes, and appropriate
410,000 for the same object. The
unanimity with which these rendu-
1 ic 11s have teen passed shows that the
people of Nelson want the change, and
there seems no reason why the Government shonld not grant it. At present
the school is managed from Victoria,
an arrangement which has all possible
drawbacks, und is not satisfactory to
either party. The revenue derived
fiom this district for school purposes
amounts to about $5,000, and, as the
cost of running the school comes to
about the same, the Government will
sutler no loss of revenue by transferring the control. Were the revenues
collected locally there is little
doubt but that this revenue wonld be
increased by at least 50 per cent.,
with the result that the necessary additional teachers could be secured, tho
present teaching staff being wholly
inadequate.
It would, moreover, be mnoh more
satisfactory to have the school managed here. The Department always
fails to grasp the needs of the establishment, besides caking months to
effect anv trifling improvements that
may be sanctioned. Nelson has a right
to be a separate school district, and
the Government will do well to accede to the request.
The last telegram tbat came 111 this
morning was a bulletin stating tbat
General Buller had succeeded in crossing tho Tugela River after a stiff fight.
Anxious to get the latest details for
onr leaders, we caused the Vancouver
operator to telegraph New York for
further particulars, but at a comparatively late hour nothing beyond the
bare fact was known there. If this
report be true, and it is cabled as reliable those who have been swift to condemn General Buller on account of his
failure the other day must now retraot
their strictures. The meagre details
we publish this morning regarding
the battle of Tngela river do not enable one to form a clear idea of what
took place, thongh it seems certain
that General Buller temporarily forced
a passage,and that the guns, were lost
on the north side of the river, not tho
south. Tugela River is but some 20
miles from T adysmith, so, if tbe Daily
Mail's cable is correot, General Boiler should by now have joined ban da
with General Whito.
their successors go on with it.    Nelson
is a large and growing  shipping point
and   the   wharf is in   bad   condition
Some such action was necessary for the
oredit of the town.
Miss Palmer's proposed Kindergarten is a stop iu tbo right direction. A
first class Bchool for quite young children is much needed in Nelson. The
little ones will acquire much useful
knowledge, will be trained in habits
of method and order, will be kept out
oi mischief, and, what is very important with children of tender years, will
not bo ovor worked.

Mr. Bowes complains that "only the
members of Ohuroh Associations are to
be invited to assist in charitable work
in the Oity." A more careful perusal of tho paragraph to which he refers will show that sncti was not the
intention. A number of private citizens met and decided to oraanize n society for tho jndioiorjs bestowal of
charity, and to that end deoided to invite the various ohnrch associations,
as representative bodies whose aims are
in harmony with their own, to confer
with them ou the matter. This does
not mean, and should not be taken to
mean, that the advice and help of any
philanthropic person, whether he be-
liiui; to such an organization or not,
will not   be cordially aocepted.
Where is the annexationist party in
Canada? There was a time, and not
so many years ago, when annexationist leuuings were more tban suspented
ou the part of several prominent Canadian politicians. Practically nothing lias been heard of annexation of
late, and now, when the Mother Country is passing through a period of trouble and suspense, Canadians from all
parts of the world are eagerly seeking
permissiou to help. Continental nations may growl and carp, but if they
venture on overt acts they will find
they have a world wide Empire to deal

KeHilutioiiH adopted hy tlie Board of

Both resolutions were adopted, nnd
the (Ji y folio,tor instructed to prepare
an amendment to the School Act, no ns
to secure the nuhts and privileges asked for.
A.letto/ was rend from Mr. R. Hed-
ley con.pliiiiiimi of the practice of
coasting on tho publio sidewalks of tlio
city.
It wa�� decided to inform Mr. Hedley
that action had hi en taken.
Mr. Freeman-Lake asked for a sidewalk on Hall Street, between 8ilina
and (larhnintH Hit-out. It was agreed
tn comply with the request.
A resolution adopted hy the Mainland Unoeiwriters' Association was
road. It wns addressed to the Council
and set forth that should the Oity enforce the tax on insurance companies
doing hnsiii"ss in Nelson, the local
rates would he raised lo per cent.
Aid. Hillyer: "Tint is nothing
more than �� (treat leg bluff With the
class of buildings L'oiiiu up in Nelson
we oiiulit to have Insurance rntfs ns
low as those in Vancouver. I move
that the clerk notify all these companies that this rate he levied. I would
willinglv nav the extra rate rather
than be bluffed in this way."
Aid. Fletcher: "I was pay ine
some insurance the other day and they
tried to blnft' inn into paying this extra rate, but they did not get me to do
it."
The Mayor: "It nionns a good deal
tu the Oity if Ibis is put iu   force.'1
Aid. Hillyer: "Why should we allow these companies to bluff ns in this
way?"
Aid. Beer suggested that the niattor
bo referred to the City Solicitor for
his opinion.
This was agreed to, a special meeting to be cailed for Friday afternoon to
consider tho subject.
Oo motion nf Aid. Beer it was decid-
��d to purchase J1.000 house numbers at
five cents each, and supply same to the
public at cost price.
Aid, Fletcher drew attention to the
faot that the rink was being supplied
with light by the Kontenay Electric
Co. He thought that if the City could
not furnish the light, they should allow the company to supply it, but be
would like to ha>e it understood that
they should have permission from the
City before thev undertook ,to supply
light.
After so'ne discussion it wns decided
to write the company to this effect.
A resolution was passed nsiiing the
Qovernment to transfer the lands
agreed upon so as to enable the City

aud asked lhat tho roadway from Baker Street to llio lints be rendered safe

Tho Citv Engineer submitted a report
re improvements to the public wharf
on Hall Street. He renoiiimended that
the wharf be raised at the shore and to
thelleve] of the 0. P. It. track at Hall
Street, that at the sawmill wharf the
level be raised to the approximate average high waier level nf 18 feet above
average low water level, rnising the
present wharf three feet at that point.
He recommended that the wharf
he widened on the west side, utilizing
the piles put iu by the Government.
To widen the wharf bv 14 feet will
reqnire nn additional row of piles, and
make the new wharf 80 feet wide The
wharf to be raised, replanked ami widened as suggested would cost nhout $4, ���
000. It was decided to advertise for
tenders.
The Board of Works recommended
n number of onblic works, which were
approved of.
It was decided to notify all taxpayers in arrears that they must pay up
forthwith, The Council adjourned

in his full, and then he was removed

For the last six months our buyer has been purchasing stock for our Xmas Trade, and as a result our
three stories of floor space is filled to overflowing with Novelties in the Furniture Line, and consequently our
Xmas Trade so far has been the largest in many years, and with the bright prospects ahead for this week,
it will surpass our most sanguine expectations. It would be folly on our part to mention the 101 articles
which go to make up the choice collection ; and besides, we want you to come to our store and see our stock.
If you are a stranger we would like to meet you, and if you are an old friend we want to shake your hand
and wish you a Merry Xmas and at the same time thank you for your past patronage. If yoif favor us with
a call we are satisfied you will feel amply repaid for your trouble.

A KINDERGARTEN.
Mi
Palmer  Will Open a Snliool  For
Yoong Ohildren.
Yet another school is to bo started
in Nelson, this time n flay school for
quite young childien only. Miss Palmer, for the past three years governess for Mrs. .7. Roderick Robertson has
made arrangements to open a Kinder-
gar run school in tbe near future, MiBS
Palmer formerly taught, iu Miss Matthew's Kindergarten at Victoria aud
there qualified for and obtained the
necessary certificates. At first the
school will be held in tlie school room
of St. Saviour's Church, and twenty
pupils have already beeu promised to
attend when' it is opened on January
2. When the snow goes in the spring
six other very small pupils have agreed
to come, so it will be seen that the
establishment makes a good start.
Miss Palmer intends to engage an assistant, and negotiations to that end
are now proceeding.
The Kindergarten system of education fa- very young children hashjon
practised for some years with signal
success, so probably most people have
some idea of what it consists. The
children are taught as far as possible
by means of object lessons, so that the
ohildren acquire knowledge almost na-
conscinuely and nre not given a fHs,
taste for work by premature drudgery
over dry text books. For instimce
geography is taught by means of n
sand table, whereon the vontlifnl students heap up tho mountain ranges and
trace the rivers whose nnmes and localities they are committing to memory.
Special attention is also given to
physical culture, so that the body may
bo developed as well as the mind.
The curriculum includes all kinds of
plain and fancy work, singing, recait
tions, etc. Miss Palmer has had a
considerable amount" of experience in
teaching and is an expert in her }tne.
Tbe Kindergarten system of teaching
yonilg children is an acknowledged
snot ess both in the east and in. tbe
01 I Country, so there is every neasoni
whv Miss Palmer's venture should/
prove a snoress from tbe first,, especially In a growing city of refined homes
like Nelson.
THE PAOTOLUS GOLD MINES.
At a meeting nf the Bo 'nt of Direc-
tors of the Pactolns Gold Minos Limited, held yesterday afternoon, Aid. G.
Flunk Beer, was appointed managing
director and it was decided to start
work at once on a 150 foot tunnel to
strike the vein on the Lost Boy, one of
the claims of the Pactolns gronp, at
considerable depth. The treasury
stock offered for sale was subscribed
for and the comnany has ample funds
in the bank to continue work through-
cm the winter.
THE DESERVING POOR.
Editor Miner:
Sir���I think   it   is   tn   be  regretted
that, according tn your paner of Friday
last, onlv   the   memhers of church ns-
Miciiriiins aro to bo inviied to assist in I
clniritable ,vnrk in tlm city.   There are I
plenty   of   philanthropic ' people   who'
limy not belong to auy church   assocln- j
tion.    The   question   of relief for   the
dcserving poor or   even   the  poor who '
nre not deserving, is one fnr   tho   citi-
