Array Oailj Edition No. 214.
Nelson, British Columbia, Monday, January 16,   1899.
Ninth Year
WAS TOSSED ABOUT
m.
Experience of the   British
Steamer Melrose.
HAD A NAREOW ESCAPE
Gomes Into Port With  All   Her Pumps
Working and   Three Inohes of
Water in Her Hold.
Boston, Mass., Jan. 14:���Tbe Britii-h
steamer Melrose arrived here today from
Barry, Scotlntid, after a most tempestuous trip, during which she narrowly escaped foundering iu mid-ocean, owing to
a leak in one of her ballast tanks. Ab it
was, the steamer came into port with all
her pumps working and three iuches of
water in her hold. The ship leaked
about six inohes au hour and will be
docked here for repairs.
The Melrose left Bary ou Deoember 23
and thtee days latter it was found that
she waa making water in her No. 1 hold
through a balleBt tank. He bilge pump
was started and for a time it kept the
water down, but Ihe increasing westerly
Kales with fearful Beae, probably opened
the plates, for the leak, inoieased until
Jau. 11, when there was six feet of water
over the tHnk.
Matters now were decidedly serious
and it became a question whether the
pumps, lhe ballast and hand pumps bav
ing beeu brought luto notion, could free
the vessel or at least keep Ihe water from
gaining. The situation became still
more threatening when at midnight on
the 11th,a terrific sea boarded the steamer and stove in the Mi I ah) ! aid door*,
disabling the air and band pumps, The
steamer stopped, falling off into the
trough of the sea and telling fearfull)
uutil she shipped fonr heavy Bliiuncl-
ions, whioh luoke boards in the csi >iiig<.
Had tbe bulkhead between tbe Nn, 1
and 2 holds gone down, ihe fluc must
have sunk. A tew lepairs were, however, effected and aliln imb leaking over
eight inohes an hour, the pumps then
began lo gi.in on the wati r uud the Melrose readied port in -nlely. The si earner on the llltli met the Beveie onld Wavi
which passed over tbe country on (h-
11th and 12th and great musses of ice
formed on the rigging. Frequently the
rooking of Ihe ship would break off huge
chunks of ice ami many of the crew had
narrow escapes from being struck, whiei
no doubt w(itiltl huve severely injured,
if not killed them. There were six incbe^
of ice on tho main deck when Bhe arrived, while tbe riggiug was heavily
loaded.
GERMANS   AKE  INDIGNANT.
Objects to Statements Made as to Their
Financial   Conditions.
Berlin, Jan, 14.���Considerable iudig-
nation; in evincod at the unfavorable
reports emanating from Loudon concerning the economical and financial
conditions of Germany, especially tbe
statement that leading English banks
recently declined to accept Prussian
bills for a largo amount. This statement is declared to be utterly untrue
and calculated to unfavorably impress
the German houses with rospect to the
impending loans.
The National Zeitung points out
that the present financial tightness is
solely due to the extraordinary expan
sion of German industries which has
absorbed immense quantities of capi-
tul, adding: "This led to a raise iu
the rate of discount and a Blight decline iu Prussian and Imperial loans."
RHODES AND HIS RAILROAD.
London, Jan. 14.���Mr. Cecil
Rhodes, the former premier of Cape
Colony, and managing director of the
Chartered South Africa Company, arrived in London from Capetown today.
There is considerable interest in bis
visit, which is connected with tbe
scheme of joining Cairo and Capetown
by railroad. He will endeavor to get
the government to guarantee the interest on the bonds of a railroad from
Buluwayo to hike Tanganyika,
ONLY ONE WAY TO DO IT.
Senate Question Can Only be Settled by
Abolition.
Toronto, Out., Jan. 14.���The Globe in
an artieloon "l'ublic Opinion of tne Sen
ate" oomments on Goldwin Smith's stnte-
ment that while the Senate iu its present
form uaiiuut be defended, and that he is
OppoBtd III a siugle elective cbauibt",
says it seems to be virtually giving ii|
the case for a second chamber. Mr.
Smith says the British Parliament would
probably consent to give the Commons
the power of passing mensure by two
thirds or three fifths majority over the
Senate vote. Tbe Globe ndds: "All Mr,
Smith's amendment would do, would be
to lessen tbe Senate's power of obstruction, but it would leave tbe main question still to be settled. We see uo way
of settling it satisfactorily, except by abolition."
BECOMING EPIDEMIC.
Another Case of Poison, This Time in a
Barrel of Flour,
Bultiuinre,'Md., Jau. 14.���Martha Bailey, oolored, 88 years old, is looked up
here charged with the murder by
poison ot George W, Kiab, also colored,

WRITES TO THE PRESS
Pledges Americans to  Contribute  1,000
Pounds to Gordon Memorial
College Fund,
London, Jan, 14,--American society
here is taking extiaordinary measures
to check the great notoriety   attained
by Col. George Gourand, who of his
own motkm, asitmed the leadership of
the American wing of the Anglo-
Americau movement in London. Colonel Gourand first came forward on
the arrival of General Lord Kitchener,
of Khartoum, in England. The Colonel went to Dover to greet lum and
is the most co; spicuou.-i figure iu the
kinetogoope pictures of the event
shown in the music halls. Since then
he has deluged the papers with letters,
wriiten always in the name of the
United States Army, or of .the Americans in London, signing a siring of
lilies to his name, of which the first
lie is "One Time Assistant. Inspector
Gc.er.il of Artillery on the Staff of
General Sherman." He pledged the
Americans to contribute ��1.(100 to the
fund for the erection of the Gordon
Memorial College at Khartoum, and
issued a circular, with glaring headlines, requastinglcontrlbuiinns to fonud
"An Edison Chair of Science." The
Colonel's latest appeal is f< r money fc
E glishnien wh"enlisted in lhe United
Stales Army, helped to defeat Spain
and uere af.eiwards discharged, of
whom he says tin re were mimy. Th s
was tn It en up by some papers as corroborating the assertion of Mr. Curi-
i gham thi.t the best fighting in th
ipui ish war ��as done by Englishmen.
Tee whole business has made the
Loi don Americans a laughing stock
i d lhe Executive Committee of the
uuerican Society bus issued a letter io
editors and oth rs declining lhat the
Colonel has no warrant to speak for
��� ny one but. himself.

TO CRUSH OUT UNIONS.
London, Jan. 14.��� Tbe power ot
Trades Unions is gone, so far as Great
Britain is concerned. The British
employers are forming a gigantic combination to fight the workmen with

He Reports to the Court of
Cassation.
SUPPLIED INFORMATION
He Complains Bitterly That Those Should
Befriend Him Who Have
Deserted Him.
Paris, Jan, 14 ���Major Esterhazy hfis
sent to M. Maju, President of theCotiri
of Cuss tion. ti synopsis of the evidence
which he says he would have giveu at
the Dreyfus revision inquiry if safe
conduct had beeu grunted him. He
admits his relations, during 1891-95, at
the request of Colonel Bandberr, Chief
of the information bureau at a foreign
uget cy. The Court claims that he
supplied the Colonel with important
Information enabling him to combat
the intrigues of an individual, well
known, but whose positioi made it
unsafe to act openly against him.
Esterhazy adds that he was warned a
month ahead, of Matthew Dreyfus'
intention and denounced it at the instigation of Colonel Picquart, Subsequent to this, he had closest relations
with his superiors and acted thiorigh-
ou t on their instructions till January
7th, 1808, wnen, he claims, the war
ministry suddenly assumed a hostile
attitude towards him,
Fresh proceedings, the Count as-
seits, were instituted at ihe instigation
of his cousin, with a view lo getting
out of the way and preventing him
from testifying before the Court of
Cassation. In conclusion Esterhazy
sins: "Alone, exiled, abandoned by
those who should have defended me, I
li,.ve resisted the most tempting otfeis
������ind have refused to say, or write, a
word about my chiefs. I hope the
���stin will be spared me of having to
appeal to the tribunal of public opinion
fiom the decision of the Court of
Cessation."

ATTEMPT TO TDliN
E.1
Houston-Turner Crowd Are
After Him.
SEND MANYTELEGEAMS
It is Because He Voted to Grant   a Li
quor Licer.Be to Abe K.
Johnson.
Beaten at every turn and now in the
last stages of despair, the Houston-
Turner people are credited witi an
effort to force the resignation of Police
Magistrate E. A. Crease, because���
and for this reason alone���he did his
duty as a member of the Board of
License Commissioners in voting to
award to Abe N. .Tohdson a license
which the Mayor of Nelson had
promised him (Johnson) and had afterwards denied him.
It has long been known that Mr.
Houston \v :s not quite pleased with
Mr. Crease as Police Magistrate. He
could not do with him ns he could
with others associated with him, and
there is little doubt that Mr. Houston
would at any time have been more
than pleased to have Ind���speaking
politically���Mr. Crease's scalp. Mr.
(���rouse's action at the Saturday meeting of the License Commissioners���an
account of which will he found elsewhere���was the last straw. It had
iiee.n hoped by the Houston-Turner
peo;ile thnt Mr. Crease would vote
against rho Johnson license, but in
lhis they wero disappointed. He
voted with Mayor Neelands, and as he
was already on record in the minute
books. Mr. Turner, the third member
of the Commission alone voted in the
negative.
11 comes to The Minor on what seems
to be very good authority that immediately after the conclusion of Saturday's meeting, John A. Turner, John
Houston and other friends of Robert
Lemon, who bad hoped to secure the
Mnllotte license, despatched telegrams
to Victoria demanding the head of Mr.
Crease. It is now generally believed,
and hardly to be doubted, that it was
in the interests of Mr. Lemon, that
Mr. W. A. Macdonald was removed
from the Board of License Commis-
-ioners and John A. Turner placed
thereon. With Mr. Houston re-elected
Mayor, whatever action Mr. Crease
night take as a member or the Board,
would make no difference, ns Messrs.
Houston and Turner would be in the
majority and Houston could dictate
bis wants. They were not looking for
Hamilton George Noelands in the
capacity in which thoy found him
Saturday, and as no pressure they can
bring to bear can secure his removal,
Mr.   Crease  is the one that must now
go.
Therefore they began a move which
thoy hoped would result in the removal of Mr. Crease. Mr. Turner, of
course, as Government Agent here, is
tho leader in the movement He lost
no time Saturday night iu getting to
work aud it is said that in addition to
his messagos several wero sent by
I riends of his und Messrs. Houston
aud Lemon.
The messages had hardly beou transmitted, however, before tho alleged
action was known to the friends of
Mr. Creasu. The wires became overheated so swiftly did the messages
follow each other. Hon. J. Fred
Hume must have had a messenger at
his door every minute throughout Saturday and yosterdav. Some of the
messages were exceeding warm aud
Mr. Hume now knows a groat deal
more about the situation here than ho
did  When he arose Saturday morning.
At any rate, he knows that a majority of the very best and most highly
respocted citizens of Nelson���some of
them his strongest supporters���object
most strenuously to Mr. Crease's
removal as Police Magistrate.

Slocan City, Jan. 4, 18U&
The Country is growing tired of
these academic discussions of the
Senate. The latest outbreak was
caused by the Premier's plan of reform, given out at a meeting in
Montreal a short time ago. His
proposal is that when differences
arise between the Senate and the
Commons, there shall be power to
hold a joint session of the two
Houses,    when the majority of both
shall decide,   That   is   Mr.   David With Kitchener to Khar-
Mills's plan, announced some   time
ago.       It   is   the   plan which they
think of adopting in the   Australian   [)octor Thorne

Mail Orders
A Speciality.
There is doubtless a right sid
and a wrong side to every question,
but the strange thing is we can
never agree as to either. For example, we find The Record,of Rossland, strongly objecting to the proposed legislation to exclude aliens
from working our placer mines, and
strongly approving the intention to
prohibit the employment of Japanese
in the mines of British Columbia.
There are others no doubt who will
quite as strongly support the legislation against aliens and oppose the
discrimination against the Japs.
Others again will support both, and
still others oppose both. And all
will govern their conduct by what
they most conscientiously believe to
be their duty as good, loyal citizens
of the Province.
Here are wide differences of opinion, and experience teaches that
they cannot be reconciled. They
cannot all be right; in the face of so
many differences, indeed, it is obvious that many of them must bei n
the wrong. One would think there
should be no difficulty in coming to
a'right judgment overthe proposal to
exclude Americans from our placer
mines. If not a proper thing to do,
we should not support it. It can
scarcely be proper when so directly
opposed to every tradition of the
British race. We do not refer to
the politicians, who will do anything
to enrry favor with the voters; nor
do we refer to the voters whose
highest conception of public duty or
public policy is their own self-interest. If we exclude Americans, merchants on the Coast may get more
complete hold of the Atlin trade.
Is it worth while to commit an act
that is wrong in itself to secure this
object? The merchants who will be
benefitted will say it is, for they are
actuated purely by selfishness; and
the politicians who hope toget votes
by it will do the same. But why
should honest, disinterested men
support a proposal to go back a
hundred years in our civilization, to
enact legislation that will put our
Province on a par with China? Some
of the American States do it to us,
it will be said. But that is no reason. We are poor creatures if we
feel obliged to demean ourselves by
being unneighborly because we have
unneighborly neighbors. On no
principle oi right can such legislation be justified; and aside altogether from principle, we shall be greatly
mistaken if it does not prove had
policy from the point nl material interest alone.
The    legislation against Japs    is
cran less defensible than the   other. !
It is not   only   opposed    to    British I
principle, but is contrary to   British
policy.       Our  Mother Country has
made herself great and   glorious  by
scheme of federation. But it wi
not satisfy the Canadian people, for
the reason that it would render the
Senate an entirely subordinate body, I
and therefore a useless one. The
chief organ of the Liberals continues
to advocate complete abolition. Mr.
Goldwin Smith suggests an amendment that would enable the Commons to over-ride the Senate by a
two-thirds or three-fourths majority
These discussions are purely
academic. The constitution of lhe
Senate is not a live issue; the public
thought is not disturbed by it, and
the only persons who manifest interest enough to become excited over
the question are a few of the leading
partisans who for the moment feel
disappointment at being checked by
the Senate. The great body of the
people do not recognise that there
is the least necessity for a change,
and if they were asked to pronounce
on it would vote to retain it just as
it is. It was intended to be a
check on the Commons, and it
would be a remarkable thing indeed
if it were to be abolished or weakened merely because it is serving
the purpose for which it was created. When the Canadian people desired to escape from the deadlock of
1864, they asked for a Federal
union with a constitution similar in
principle to that of the Mother
Country. They got it, and they
are satisfied with il. There are two
Houses, of co-ordinate powers, one
elective and the oilier nominative.
The latter corresponds, as nearly
as our circumstances will admit, to
the British House of Lords. And
the incomparable Gladstone, in lln
height of his power and popularity
was never able to excite the British
people against the House of Lords.
Neither Sir Wilfrid Laurier, nor any
other person can excite the Canadian people against the Senate.
The Senate displeased the Liberal
party by rejecting two or three of
its measures, hence the cry for its
mending or ending. The Senate,
like the House of Lords, is not expected to resist the clearly expressed
will of the people. If lhat Teslin
railway deal, for instance, had the
support of the country, it was the
duty of the Senate to agree to it
But the Senate did not so believe,
and accordingly it rejected it. It was
precisely for sueh a purpose it was
created. If the Laurier Government
thought the Senate mistaken and were
eager to rebuke it they had the remedy in their own hands; they could
have appealed to the people, and if
sustained the Senate would have
had to yield. But the Government
knew better; they were afraid lo
challange such an issue, and ever
since their most active partisans
have been venting their disappointment by scolding the Senate. They
might us well whistle against the
wind.

JOHNSON AT UST
Board Awarded It To Him
Saturday.
TURNER FOUGHT HARD
Police   Magistrate   Orease  Sticks to His
Former   Record and Votes
With the Mayor.
Tho city of Nelson Ims paid its debt
to Alio N. Johnson, It remained for
Mayor Neelands lo carry out the prom
Ise made to Mr. Johnson by John Hi 11s-
tnn, when the latter was mayor, anil
which promise was made in his official
capacity as iniiyi r. The Board of License Coininisiiners Ha'iirilny after
noon awarded Mr. Johnson Ihe license
transferred from Mrs. Mellette, anl
Mr. Johnson Immediately opened his
saloon. It was up u motion of Mayor
Neelands lhat this action was taken.
He was supported by Mr. Crease uud
opposed hy John A. Tuner, the third
member of the commission, who has
been Interested in securing the license
for Mr. Lemon.
Thismatt-r was the first taken up at
the meeting. Alayt r Neelands after
culling the meeting to order uskeil for
the reudiug of the minutes of the hist
regular meeting of the Board and of
the special meeting of Dec. 27 at which
was rescinded the resolution passed at
the previous meeting transferring the
license to Mr Johnson.
His Worship then moved that the
minutes of the special meeting, iu so
far ns they related to the Malletto license, be expunged from the records
and that the minutes and records of
the meeting of December 14 be restor
ed to rend ns they read originally.
Mr. Crease seconded Mavor Neela ds'
motion, explaining as he did so that he
had supported the original motion
when Mr. Johnson had heen granted
the transfer and that he had refused to
act wilh Mr' Houston ond Mr. Turner
nt the special meeting when the former action hail been rescinded. On principal he was opposed to the granting
or transfer of a license for a saloon on
linker street, but there were peculiar
exigiences in this particular case. It
WS8 hut justice lhat Mr. Johnson
should secure the license; the circumstances in the case compelled him to
act us he had.
In reply to Mr. Turner's question as
to what effect the passage of the resolution before the Boprd would have,
Mayor Neelands said that it give Mr.
Johnson the license he had been promised by the ex-mayor.
Mr. Turner then addressed the hoard
ut some length. Such action as was
proposed, he said, would be illegal.
He had consulted the Attorney Gen
eral of the Province, he claimed, ad
had been Informed hy him that the
stand was Ihe proper one. He argued
too, that Mr. Johnson's application
snould have been accompanied by ii
petition. It was only a menus of ovad-
ng the law which provides that a license cannot be granted without a petition and lie did not believe that the
residents in the vicinity of Mr. John
sou's saloon wanted it there.
Mr. Neelands intimated that there
were other blocks ou Baker stroet in
which saloons wero and still others in
which saloons could bo placed, and he
did not believe that this should bo
used as an argument ngainst Mr.
Johnson.
W. A. Galliher, an behalf of Mr.
Johnson, also addressed the Board,
pointing out that the Board would be
acting strictly within its authority iu
granting the transfer to Mr. Johnson.
The provisions of tbe Municipal
Clause Act, Mr. Galliher said, with
regard to the transfer of a license from
ono jerson to nnothor or from one
place in another, did not provide for
the signing of a petition by the property owners in the immediate or
adjacent blocks ns is required in the
eases of now licenses.
A solicitor also appeared on behalf
of Mr. Loniou.
At tho conclusion of the argument
Chairman Neelands put the motion
which wus carried by his own vote
and that of Mr. Croase, Mr. Tumor
voting in tho negative. Tho minutes
of Dec. U were therefore restored to
their original shape.
A resolution renewing all existing
licenses, among them that of Abo N.
Johnson wus then adopted and Mr.
Tumor was defeated.
The application of Robert E. Lemon,
who had hoped to get the Malletto
license, was then presented but ub
there were uo vae.mt licenses to grant,
Mr. Lemon's application was ordered
returned.
During tho meeting Mr. Turner and
Mr. Lemon's solicitor referred to Mr.
Crease's connection with tho matter,
In justice to Mr. Orease, tho facts as
they transpired, should bo given,
At the meeting ef Deo. U there nu
presented to the Board a request from
Mrs. Malletto that her license be transferred to Mr. Johnson, Mr. Johnson
at the same t����(B making implication
OH his own behalf. On motion of Mr.
Macdonald, seconded by Mr. Crease,
the transfer was made. Mr. Houston
who was then chairman, refused to
issue tho license, in spite of the fact
that it was shown lie had promised
Johnson the license and had told him
to go ahead and prepare to open his
saloon and he (the mayor) would give
him a permit to run until the License
Commissioners met. Johnson subsequently opened up and was summoned
for the sale of liquor without a licenso
and fined by Police Magistrate Crease,
Mr. Crease holding that the transfer
was not complete without the sanction
of tho Mayor, which sniicliou tbe
Mayor hud refused to give. On
Dee. ^2 the removal of Mr. W. A.
Macdonald, who was a license commissioner, was affected and Mr. Turner appointed in his stead. On Dec.
2" n hurriedly called meeting was lield
anil Mr. Turner and Mr. Houston
caused to lie entered in the record
book a resolution purporting to annul
that Dart of the minntes of the regular
meeting of Dec. 14. Mr. Crease took
no part in this action, although being
present, because of its former action
and the promises made by the Mayor
to Mr. Johnson. His action on Saturday went no farther than adhering to
tbe position taken by him at the original meeting and simply restored to Mr.
Johnson whatever rights ho may have
anqnired hy reason of the former

Silverton, Jan. 14.���This week's oie
shipments from SilveitoD foot up a total of 123 tons. The roads are in excellent condition nnd the ore has been
steadily accumulating at the wharf
and now amounts to nearly three carloads, notwithstanding that five carload." havo Leon shipped, lhe Wakefield sending out two carloads and the
Vancouver three for the week. Only
two mines are shipping at present, the
Vancouver and the Wakefield, the
Oomstock Jlines holding back awaiting the completion of their concentrator and the Emily Edithmiue although
sacking ore daily has not as yet commenced to'ship. When their output commences to come down our shipments
will be more than doubled.
Silverton ore shipments during the
first two weeks of January, 18!)!), aggregated 123 tons thus:
Jan.   2, Vancouver, mine 2D tons
Jan.   1  Fidelity mine     3 tons
Jan.   ti, Wakefield mine  20 tons
Jan.   9, Vancouver mine   10 tons

E. Mansfield, who is managing the
Jaker group is at thePhnir en route to
the properties. Bis headquarters are iD
Slocan City but ou account of the snow
he has to reach the properties by way of
the Molly Gibson nnd over the divide.
Work on the Joker group is progressing
actively. A shaft has been sunk 70 feet
and three feet of ore has been struck,
There is a hundred tons nf ore on the
dump and a good value of gold is shown.

Mr. J. M. Williams, a West Australian
Mining expert is at tho I'hair. This is
Mr. William's first visit to British Columbia, but he has visited every other
prominent mining country in the world.
He has come lately from London aud is
representing British capita), lie did
not state the name of his company but it
id one that has as yet no interests in British Columbia so considerable good to
this Province mny result from his visit.
"British Columbia is as yet but very
little known in London" said Mr. Williams to a Nelsou Daily Miner reporter
yesterday, ''it is only in the offices of
private companies lhat one can see samples of 15. 0. ores aud there are no signs
iu London thut the Government of this
Province has done anything to advertise
its mineral resources. The opportunities to do so by representaling ore displays at the show this summer at the
Crystal Palace and at Paris in 1900 should
not bo missed. However, I think that
this year will see the investment of a
great deal of British capital iu British
Columbia as the attention of the monied
men of the Old Country is being gradually turned to this country. But good
advertising of whut you have to offer
should do an immense amount of good."
# *   #
D. W. Moore and U. A, Ciuriieham o
theTiuil smelter uud 0. F. Smith of
KoBsland are three well known mining
men ut the Hume.
Oue of the principal reasous that more
mining property does not change   bauds
is  the  unreasonableness  of   so   many
owners, says the Mining and Metallurgi
cal J"iiraa'.Capital is constaotlyjieekinir
opportunities for investment; but i-i tin
majority of instancfs,runs up against the
snug whioh overturns so   many  possible
sales i. e., Ihe man who has millions   in
prospective, but only hundreds in Bight.
Why a capitalist should lake   any mor<
Chances in mining lln.n in any oilier business   proposition   is   hard   to   discern.
Hardly a claim, prospect or miue  is  oi
the market today, that is not placed bigl
above its actual value, said a  prominen
buyer    recently.    Tho   difficulty   arise*
from the owner's igeoinnoe of  u  mine't
"idue.    The Boouer it is understood that
claims and prospects are not   mines, and
even where ore has been developed, that
investors will not generally pay for mine
than there is in sight, the sooner will mon
transfer be made.  Ihis leads up lo what
is   termed   "ore   iu   sight" upon which
point bo many have bill, little idea.    Ask
some miners what  they   have   in   sight,
and you will probably meet with the  repulse  that they have a  shaft   dowu   4(1
feet* and, as close as they can   estimate,
about 40,00(1 tons of ore in   sight.    Now
by   what   method   of calculation this is
arrived at is hard to determine.  Another
will claim to have, say, iu  figures, about
150.000 worth.    Ask him   what   he   will
sell for, and he will tell you there is   no
doubt as to the  ore   going   through   to
China, nnd he thinks that 8100,000 woultr-
be about the right figure.    He   gives no
Consideration to the fact that values con-
tuiued iu the ore iu a mine   and   bullion
returns are matters   to   be   considered.
That it takes money to  erect   mills,   develop water,  build roads, etc   In other
words it takes money   to   mine.    While
legitimate mining, as a rule, pays abetter
interest ou the money invested than any
other   business,   it   is  neither   just nor
right lo   expect   impossibilities.    Ofleu-
imes a mine, from which every available
pound of ore has  been sloped,   will  be
placed ou the market at   a   high   figure,
and the bullion returns will be shown of
pnBt   productions.    As   well    might     a
merchant pay a high figure for au empty
store simply bcoause in days gone  by it
has done a g od business.    Let the miue
owner consider theBe matters.    Let him
be truthful of what he has to   sell.    For
the investor will take   accurate   account
of stock, and if hi.^ shelves are not empty
und his price is in keeping with  what he
has to tell, be may dispose  of   his   pro
e.rty.

THEATRICAL CLUB.
Organization  Will   be  Completed   and
Acive Worked Start This Week.
This wei U will sec the organization of
an amateur theatrical society in Nelson.
Such a club has been spoken of for Rome
time and judging by the number of
people who wish to become members and
lie identified with the movement these
ea.'i be no doubt but that it will be successful. A city situated as this is must
rely pretty well on its own citizens for
whatever amusement is required and a
theatrical society, capable of (living high
class productions in nn attractive man
ner, will be n very welcome addition to
ihe city organizations.
A meeting will be held this week to
complete the formation of the club,
and active preparations will be maih
nt once for the first production which
will probably open the new opera
bouse, row in course of construction
If the completion of the opera house
is delayed too long a play will probably be prepared and produced in one
of the halls now available. The time
and place of the organization meeting
will be decided today.
Where no oonslieration is named in trunsfei
