NEW DYNAMO WANTED
The   Oity   Engineer   to  fieport  on the
Water Wheels���Kelson to Have
Four Miles of Sowers.���
The Board of Works met last night
to discuss with Mr. Dickson (the electrical engineer who represents the
Kootenay Electric Supply and Con-
sttiictinu Company) the proposed iu ���
crese of tho Electric Light plant.
Mr. Dickson entered into a detailed
description of tho scheme he had put
beforo the committee at their last
meeting. Ho produced plans and diagrams and gave an interesting account
ot how the machines therein described
would work
At present thero are two wheels
which suppiy the power for the dynamos namely a six foot wheel and a
four foet wheel. The four foot wheel
is some 2C foet higher up than the six
font wheel and there is at present some
donbt ns to whether tho smaller wheel
should uot be lowered to the leval of
the larger wheel. The ad visibility of
substituting another six fool wheel was
also debated. The Oity Olerk said he
had spoKon to Mr. Houston, tho former manager of the electrio light company, nnd he (Houston) said that he
wsn afraid there was not sufficient
water to drive two six foot wheels.
Mr. Dickson said that a measurement
should tie made of the amount of water
required for each wheel and almost tbe
amount oj power generated by them.
The City Engineer was instructed to
inspect tlio wheels with Mr. Dickson
and report to the committee.
The machine whicii Mr. Dickson
suggests is an inductor alternator dynamo with a capacity of furnishing
2,600 additional lignts. This would
mean, Mr. Dickson estimated a rov-
enue of at least $600 a month to the
City in resnect of those lights. The
preseut system is so inadequate tbat
gas, gasoline lamps and even private
electric light systems will he used
this coming winter instead of the
City's electiro light unless considerable alterations are made. The Board
of Works were anxious to know if Mr.
Dickson could see his way to reduce
his estimate of the cost of tne new
plant.
Mr. Dicksou said that of course hy
lessening tho amount of wire the expense could be crtailetd but this would
be a near sighted policy. However it
might ho nossible to obta'.n a second
hand machine but a new one would
give more satisfaction.
Finally the committee asked Mr.
Dickson to meet them again after the
Engineer had made his   report   on the
Pleased With Tbeir Stay In j Povah,
the Queen City.
WINNIPEGGERS     HERE
The Ee^oi't of the Eecent Visit as It
Appeared in The Manitoba
Free Press.
Tho following is the report of tbo
Western Oanada Press Association's
visit to Nelson, as it appeared in the
Winnipeg Free Press:
Nelson, B. O., Juuo 29.--The excursion party of the Western Oanada
Piess Association reached here this afternoon at 4 o'clock and wns due to
loavo for Kuslo nt T. Much regret
wus felt because of the short stay of
the press people in tbis the most important commercial centre of the
Kootenay district A number of the
excursion'sts, however, were determined to take a good look at Nelsou
and remained over a day while the
halanco of the party vsitod Kaslo and
Sandon, the party all assembling a day
later at Kootenay Landing. Through
tbe kindness and attentiou of Mr.
Ohadburn of the Nelson smelter the
stay of the visitors was made profitable
and interesting by au inspection of the
assay office and works of thn Nelson
smelter. Although the amelter was
not in full operation, for want of ore,
oaused by the miners' strike, an explanation of the various processes by
which the ore is treated was instructive to all. The copper furnace in the
Nelson smelter in tho largest in the
world and fairly eats up ore, being a
veritable hades. The mine of the
ewers of t.io Nelson smeller is situated some five miles from the smelter
and the ore is conveyed by meanf of a
tramway���said to be the longest in
operation. Buckets are attached at
short intervals on the cudless wire���
tne weight of the full buckets coming
down tbe hill on one side providing
power for conveying the empty ones up
tne hill and back to the mine on the
other. At the smelter just as the
Imckets round the large wheel resting
ou a trestle, tney are' automatically
dumped into a shoot, which conveys
the ore to the smelter, a hundred feet
below. The smelter is expected to be
in full operation in another week.
If the strike were over, there would he
plenty of ore to keep tbe works "hot"
all the year round, Mr. Chadbourn,
who purchases ore for tbe smelter,

Vaucouver Provinco Corroborates  The
Miner's Account of the Disputo
Ou July 4th The Miner referred to n
rumor of impending strife betwean tbe
' O. P. R.   and   Kuslo Slooau  Railway
regarding tho   new Wharf at Kuslo.
The Kaslo Kooteuaian took tho trouble to correct The Miner. The Province of yesterdav publishes tho following which practically corroborates Tho
Miner's report:
Kaslo has alwavs beeu in disgrace
with tourists ou account of the poor
wharf facilities it has had, thero being
ouly two miserable apologies for
wharves for the stoamors to land at.
Now, however, tbe O. P. K. have
started construction on a new largo
wharf at the corner of Third and
Front streets. Mo Arthur & Co., of Nelson, have the contract for building it
and are nt work with a steam pile-
driver pnttiug iu the piles.
Tne Kootenay Railway -��nd Navigation Company are also going to build
a new wharf very close to the C P.
R. ; tbe same firm McArthur & Co.,
have also the contract for this. Both
wharves will bo of the pontoon class
with floatiug apronB with tho rise and
rail of tha lufce. The building of tne
O. P. R. wharf is likely to bring about
some interesting legal oompliiatious.
During the past two days the 0. P.
li. have boon served with two notices
threatening nn injunction to compel
them to stop work, both of wbich the
0. P. R. bave ignored. The facts are
that the 0. P. R. bought two lots on
the north side of Front street and
waited for high water which covers a
portion of their lots. Tbey then commenced to drive piles from the edge
of the water right out into tho lake.
But behind their lots I'rero is a street

Victoria, July 11.���(Speoial)���As
announced in the Globe yesterday negotiations are proceeding, looking towards the forniulntiion of a coalition
Government, aud it is very likely it

little hope of getting it through coalition nre opoosed to that scheme. Tbe
general consensus of opinion among
politicians is that coalition will be
agreed upou, that later the Governor
will dismiss Martin, accept Semlin's

this proves correct, the Administration

Some time ago tbis Government proposed to send troops to Pyramid Harbor
as a precautionary measure, as there
was a lawless element thero and a military force was considered neces-
,.���, sary. The British Government

Tho sower question then came up.
Mr. Mnlone and others petitioned for
a sewer in Water street from Oednr
to Willow streets. The City Engineer
was instructed to figure out the cost
first of all before this wns undertaken.
The sewer system was then generally disorssed. This year it is proposed to lay down nearly two miles of
sevwor pipes making in all close on
four miles of sewers in the Oity, just
half as much as Spokane. The City
Engineer produced u plan showing the
proposed additions. The committee

disputed territory might be misunderstood aud provoke the very trouble
whioh hoth Governments were anxious
to avoid. The British Government
therefore suggested that United States
trorms should not he sent to Pyramid
Harbor, and agreed that the Canadian
mounted police should be kept av ay
from the Canadian side. Neither Government has maintained on armed

MAKING  MISCHIEF.
If the Nelson Bourd of Trade are  to
retain   the large measure of publio respect and confidence heretofore   enjoyed, thoy will require to avoid the recurrence of such displays   as mark d  tne
proceedings at the   meeting   on   Monday night.    They bad   already decided
to take part in the confereuce of Boards
soon to be held at  Rossland, called  to
discuss matters   of general   interest to
the southern portion   of   the Province.
It would be a good thing if those cou
ferences were made an   annual   affair
Boards of Trade,    like  other   associa
tions, oan learn   many things of  each
other by a free and   intelligent   inter
change   of   views;   and besides   this,
tbere    are   numerous   questions  that
affect tho Boards of tbis district in similar degree, and in  respoot to wbich it
is desirable tbe   viows of  oach should
he known to the others.   It was doubtless in this thought  the suggestion of
a  conference originated.    It was proposed   that   tbe  Kootenay   Boards of
Trade should send  representatives to a
convention   of    delegates,   and  oaoh
were invited   to   suggest subjects  for
discussion.    With that   spirit of enterprise   that   has  always   characterized
them, the Nelson   Board   promptly responded co the  invitation   to join   in
the conference, and a meeting was called for Monday night   to  consider   the
subjects    which   the  Council  of  the
Boaid bad reoommended for discussion.
So  far   tbe    proceedings   were    iu
every   respeot   satisfactory,   and   one
would  naturally  feel  disposed  to applaud the Board for their   readiness in
adopting the seggestion   of   a  conference.   It was creditable alike  to their
enterprise and their  intelligence.    On
Monday   uigbt, however,  a faotion of
reactionaries  wen   drummed up, and
with the meeting packed for  the purpose, the recomendations of  the Counoil  were  repudiated, and a motiou to
deoline participation in the eonfemnce
was defeated only by tbe casting  vote
of  tbe President.    Tbe leadar in this
senseless obst-uctiou is  a  person  wbo
may  be very correctly described  as  a
pocket edition of Mr.  Joseph   Martin.
That reputable   citizens could   support
him in it is most surprising.   The pretext was that the suhjocts chosen were
of a   political   nature.    It   would   be
bard to pitoh on   any subject of public
interest   that   is   without  a  political
side to it, if half an effort   is mndu to
disoovor   one.    All    pnblio   questions
are more or less political, nnd it iB pub-
lie   questions of interest to   this   section of country that our Board of Trade
are expected to discuss.    Those chosen
may be political; hut before aud above
that  they are  businosB questions,   of
precisely tbe character  that  Kootenay
Boards of Trade are most  doeply   interested iu   considering.    The  display
of opposition   might   be  regarded   as
idiotic, if   there wore uot a  suspicion
that it waa itself designed as a  pol ti-
cal move in a party sonse.
Of coures it would not do to surrender to this element; and it is satisfactory to know that another mooting is
to be held at ouce, when citizeue with
moro enlightened aud liberal views of
the functions expected of a Board of
Trade will have an opportunity to support tbe President and Council in
tbeir dosire to fulfil tbo purposes of ihe
conference.
said of them.   They   are divided,   not
on   political,  but   on   personal   lines.
There is no reason known to man why
a member  ot   the  Opposition   faction
should not work with a member of the
Ministerial   faction.    Although   there
is DO political   principle   at issue  we
feel it necessary   to   play  the gnme as
it is played iu tho bigger Parliaments,
and therefore   there   is  n  Ministerial
side, with Ministerial measures which
the   inevitable    Opposition   think   it
necessary to oppose.    But if both were
to   seek for a dividing   principle they
would be  at a loss.    Thero  is legisla
tion from tho one side which tbe othor
cannot  conscientiously   approva;  but
that is less the   working  of   principle
thau of accident, ns   tbe   side in ques
tion drifts into rather than adopts   its
policy.
With nothing to prevent the  ooming
together of the   best   of tho   two  elements, it  seems   by all odds the most
desirable solution of tho present   difli-
oulty that the vicious and the weak In
the Government should be oast out and
strong men from tho Opposition  taken
iu.    As an example, no one   will for a
moment seriously pretend that the Government will   not   he strengthened by
the  substitution    of    Mr.   Helnioken
for Mr. Martin.    And it  would puzzle
the wit of the shrewdest to discover one
good, sound reason why Mr. Helmcken
should   not  work  harmoniously with
Mr.   Semlin   or   Mr.   Cotton.     It   is
said that certain legislation will be repealed, this   being   a oondition of tbe
now arangoment.    That would be very
much to the credit of all parties.    The
Anti-Alien   and the Eight-Hour  laws
havo wrought much harm to the Province.   The   Premier  an3 Mr.   Cotton
must realize this,   aud  if  oersnaded
that the most effectual remedy  of  the
evil is to repeal   the   laws it  is muoh
to their credit   that   they   consent  to
have thiBdoue.   The outcome may not
be as The Globe prediots, but   to   The
Miner and at this distance it seems the
sensible  one   under  all   the circumstances, and   the   ouo therefore  to  be

1       KOOTENAY \
^���������������������������������������t�������������������������������
Yxnir, July 11. ���(Special)���Assessment work is now being done on the
Ollie claim, which adjoins the Flossie
R. The showing is very fair for a
prospect and at present there is some
eighteen inches of solid mineral in
tbe drift. This property is owned
by Spokane and Ontario  people.
Surveyors are at work laying out tbo
location lines for tho road whicii is to
bo built up the north fork of Wild
Horse Creek from tho Ymir mine to
the Summit. With tho completion of
this road, which will be iu the neighborhood of somo four miles, it will enable many properties of promiso to got
in machinery mid to make shipments
of ore, as iu the majority cf cases the
preterites are in an advanced stage of
development, and,nil that they have
been waiting for was transportation
facilitiies. This road is being built by
the owners aud Government assisting.
The Government is putting up $1 for
every dollar expended by the mine
owners. Tho London & B. 0. Gold
Fields very kindly loaned tbeir eugi
neers for the purpose of making tbe
survey.
The Ymir mine has put in a shute
from their No. 2 dump to the loadiug
station, with a view to treating the
ore ou the dump which is low grade,
but nevertheless can be treated at a
small proflflt, it bi'ing cheaper to keep
the mill running thau to allow it to
shut dowu. It is earnestly hoped in
Ymir that the difficulty between the
management and their, miuers will
soon be settled. There is a possi
bility that the mill will bavo to
close down very shortly owing to the
water in the north fork during the
summer months running short, this
will injure the returns of the mill and
what the Ymintcs hoped to see was
big returns so that other English capital would become interested iu our
district.
A group of olaims wbich will he
brought within easy access of Ymir
by tba building ot the north fork road
is tho Muskatee Group. Tbe property
consists of the Portos, Ottos, Aram is,
and Dartagnan and are owned by
Messrs. Pollant, Ducharme aud Bel
lofenille. It is situated at the head
of the north fork of Wild Horse
and Clearwater Creeks, at an altitude
of some (1,000 feet. Some 1)10 feet of
work has been done in tbe way of
open outs, shafts and tunneling, t.iese
workings showing up the mineral to
advantage. The lodges aro well mineralized and are composed of quart/,
carrying zino blende. Assays ranging
from 1^0.80 to $24 nre rer.dily obtained.
Tbe owners are at present doing their
assessments on the property and the
probabilities aro that some good strike
will be made this summer on the
claims.
The Silver Lake Group is being
further developed. This group is situated on the divide at tho head of tho
south fork of Porcupine Oreek. The
showings on the property are exceptional arid I am informed thnt shipping
ore can be obtained. The owners
claim to bave an average of $17 from
their mineral.

Tie Torouto Telegram says a letter
was recently received at the Ontario Bu
reau of Mines from Mi. Harrison Wat-
sou, curator of tho Canadian section
of the Imperial Institute, intimating that a good market has oponed nn
iu Englaud for molybdenite. Mr. Wat-
sou writes that a large firm iu Liverpool aro now anxious to obtain regular
supplies of the mineral from Oanada,
as they are manufacturing a new article whioh has opened a consumption
for molybdenite aud say that they
could take any reasonable quantity,
providing it is good and freo from silica and gangue. Canadian samples
received there havo been pretty satis
factory.
A number of deposits of moly-
blenite nre known to occur iu the eastern parts of tbe Provinco of Ontario,
and it is more than likely British
Columbia could furnish some, if attention was paid to the question of detenu
iuiug tho qualities of somo of the metals which at times puzzle the prospectors. Molybdenite in oro resembles
galena very much, therefore it is quite
possible it has often been mistaken for
that metal by tbe uninitiated. If any
body of Buch ore oxistB in British
Columbia no doubt a good prico oould
obtained for it in the new   market.
milling ore not showiug.it may be conjectured, in any other similar property
today   in tlie Ptovmce.
At this mine it is oxioctod that a
40 or 00 stamp mill will soon be erected, aud as soon as this starts running,
if only the ore will mil) up to the expectations of the niniiagemont or |S
a ton, the Stemwinder will become
oue of tho recognized dividend paying
properties of British Columbia.

The Qooderham-Blaokstook syndicate, nerbaps the strongost mining people ouoratiiig in tho Province, if not in
Camion, has purchased a controlling
interest in the St. Kiigene mine, says
tho Movie Leader, The information
was confirmed by James Cronin, who
returned from Spokane ou Thursday,
rt here the Ing deal was put through.
Tbo deal, so nenr as can be learned, is
on a basis of 80 per cent of the property for a consideration of botween
1450,000 and $500,000 for the whole
property. This is by fur tho largest
price ever paid for a   mining proporty
in East Kootenay.
The purchasing of tho controlling
interest in tho St. Eugene by. tho
Qooderham-Blaokstook people will
have no effeot on tho management of
the property. The *ork iu hand will
he carried on iu about the same manner as planned, only no doubt on a
somewhat larger scale. Work on tho
oonoentrator will mo right ahead, nnd
a ten-drill air oompressor will be installed, und will be m operation by tlie
timo the mill is completed.

PROVINCE'S   CREDIT   IS   GOOD.

factoiy, being more than one per cent

PREJUDICE
Is the cause of many a Batch of Bread having to be thrown
into tho sewer, and a woman's time and labor gone
with it. If you weren't so prejudiced you could have
111st as good success with your Bread as your neighbor.
We advise : Throw prejudice aside, and tor your next
Baking try a sack of
.     3   STAR   FLOUR.
Thousands are using it with success ;   why not you ?
doesn't suit you, you don't have to pay for it.
