Nelson should not lie behind the rest

matter they would no doubt receive
hearty bucking. Lee deserves an enthusiastic welcome home and he
should get it.

London, Oct. 31.���The Marcpiis of
Lansdowne's elevation to the Foreign
Secretaryship, according to the an
nouncements in the newspapers this
morning, has taken the country
breath away. It was unexpected as it
was unwelcome. Even the staunchest
ministerial mouth pieces among the
afternoon newspapers openly condemn
it. The Globe declares the appointment only shows that Lord Salisbury
is completely out of touch with the
feelings and wishes of the electorate
and Conservative party, while the
Liberal Westminster Gazette, crowing
over the discomfiture of the ministerial newspapers which have been so
loudly demanding the retirement of
Lord Lansdowne from the War Orlice,
express relief at the fact that Mr. Joseph Chamberlain was not given the
pOSt, laying: "The latter's appointment would have filled thoughtful
people with dismay and it is something to have escaped this serious
danger." Lord Salisbury apparently
arranged matters witll the Queen at
Balmoral a week ago. His Lordship's
owu inclination was to resign the
Premiership and devote himself exclusively to the foreign oflice. He
wrote Her Majesty to this effect, but
she declined to accept the suggestions.
Mr. Christopher Foley,tho Independent Labor candidate for Yale-Koote-
uay Cariboo, spent a few hours in the
city last evening en route to Kossland
from the Crow's Nest Pass district
where ho has been holding meetings.
He said that lie met with good success und that his cause in that district
was becoming more satisfactory every
day. and if the many promises hold
good until polling day, Mr. Foley was
sure he would come out with a good
round majority, lie held meetings
at Moyie, Cranbrook, Klmberley, Fer-
nio nnd other places. After a few
days in Kossland he will niaki) a tour
through the Boundary country and

work until spring. The northern line
men found traces of the inter-continental wire which was projected and
actually begun, to connect North
America witll Europe by way of Siberia. On the summit of a lofty
mountain near Telegraph Creek they
found a stake or surveyor's picket,
which marked the old enterprise, and
they also discovered the remains of
the old wire, which is still up iu
The Amur brings news that more
snow has fallen during the past few

If the City Council agrees this evening to accept tlie recommendation of
the Board of Public Works the streets
of Nelson will be lighted in a short
time with power derived from llon-
nington Fulls. The members of the
board made up their minds on Monday evening to act strictly ill accord
with their best judgment, notwithstanding the fact that in doing so
they were quite certain to bringdown
upon their heads the wrath of His
Worship, Mayor Houston. The mayor
was anxious to purchase power for the
operation of a dynamo from the Nelson Saw and Planing Mill, in which
he is interested, and had quite made
up his mind that he would force the
Council to act with him. He was not,
therefore, prepared for the action of
tlio members of the Hoard of Public
Works. They met on Monday evening, after the short Council meeting,
and in a businesslike manner proceeded to consider the various propositions
before them. Their deliberations resulted in the adoption of the following resolutions, which will be presented to the Council this evening:
l. That it be recommended that the
Council cither enter into a contract
with the Nelson Tramway Company.
Limited, to furnish to the city sufficient power to operate fifty 9,000 candle-power electric are lights at the
rate of S'.'li per light per annum for a
term of two years, the city to have
the option of continuing the contract
for a tii i rd year, or,
'-'. That it be recommended that the
Council enter into a contract with
the Nelson Eleotrlo Tramway Company, Limited, to supply and install
an electric light system for lifty :.',0U(l
candle-power arc lights for street
lighting at tt cost of not exceeding
8.1,01)0, tho cost'of supplying and installing such electric light system to
bo paid by the city at thu date of the
expiration of the contract between
the city and the company.
In regard to the action of the Hoard
of Works, Mr.Burnett, manager of the
Nelson Coke and lias Co., Bays: "Under our franchise we are obliged to
supply the City with gas for power
purposes ut the rate of 81 per 1,000
feet. Figuring on .10 h. p., a much
greater amount than is necessary for
tho number of street lights proposed,
and on 10 hours burning every night
in tho year, which is a lioeral estimate, the cost per month would be
8-73,7.1., These figures are lower than
uny others bubinitlcd to the Council
as far as we know. We are prepared
to furnish power at the above price,
and certainly think we are entitled
to the business as our works wore established to supply just such requirements, and it is one of the important
parts of our business and nut a side
line as is the ease with the other concerns mentioned in connection with
the contract."
Toronto, Oct. 31.���Dennis O'Brien,
aged 33, was run ovor by a street car
last evening, receiving injuries which
arc expected to prove fatal. His left
arm was cut oil and he was crushed
badly beneath the car truck.

you nre awakened with a cry from the
kitchen: "John, there'B something

down to the City offices promptly at '.i

how much you owe for water and pay

ow the money,for until you do pay it
whieh has failed to pay his water
rates. And tho "cut off" will remain
until the account is settled. In some
cases this may work a hardship but as
the city's sense of justice is probably
tempered with a degree of mercy,
what few "deserving eases" there
may be will be leniently dealt with.

Chicago,   Oct. 31.���A special to The
Tribune from San Francisco says:   On
Uniniuke Island, which   guards one of
the   entrances   to   the   Behring   Sea.
Charles   Anderson,    sailor, fisherman,
and   hunter,   starved   to death, waiting for friends who deserted him.    lie
died on   June 111,    1809, and his skeleton in his bunk and his   diary   beside

Conservatives to make Canada a ''nation," if hy that is meant a great and
prosperous self-governing portion of
the Empire. And it is fast becoming
such a nation,and was before Sir Wilfrid became Premier and will so continue after the people retire him.
Policies have much to do with the
growth of a country, but Canada's
prosperity is owing more to the country itself and the people who inhabit
it; to Its great natural resources, and
to the enterprise of those who exploit
them. It is these that are making
Cunada a nation, and the vain and
boasting Sir Wilfrid is merely the fly
on thu wheel, exclaiming, "See what
a dust I raise!"
Mr. Houston's extreme sensitiveness to every reference to electric
light or electric power is so marked
as to become almost painful. Everybody observes it. The least mention of
the subject is sufficient to throw him
into a condition of excitement. Even
the smell of gas maddens him,for gas,
unfortunately, suggests the other.
Some of the Haker street business
houses are lighted with gas, and because these are not illuminated all
night our Mayor gets into a passion,
lie contrasts the night gloom of those
places with the brilliancy of tho others that are lighted with electricity.
What a fine thing it is, he exclaims,
to have our principal street brilliantly
illuminated all night! Rather fine,
certainly, but as it is not necesssary
it is a waste of illuminating power
and therefore an extravagance. It
may not be an extravagance on tho
part of the business men who keep on
full lights all night, or of the householders who do much the same thing,
as they are charged a flat rate and
the cost lo them Is no greater; but it
costs the city so much more to maintain a system that supportss this extravagance, and we all pay for it in
the end. Hut this Mayor of ours, who
falls just a little short of being clever,
does not see this.
The extended lighting of the city is
a question that has engaged the attention of the Council for some time.
After due deliberation the members
of the Hoard of Works hove decided
to recommend a contract with the
Electric Tramway Co. This Company
is another red rag to the Mayor, and
the flaunting of it In his face is as bud
as if it were seriously proposed to do
the public lighting with gaB. We do
uot pretend to know whether the sum
mentioned in the proposed contract is
greater than the service is worth;
but we do know that the members of
the Hoard are quite as good business
men as the Mayor, and wo are strong
ly inclined to suspect that they are
both a little more honest and a little
more disinterested. If they say, as
they do, that after a careful consld
eration of all the offers they conclude
that the one made by the Tramway
Co. iB the most advantageous, wo are
quite content to accept their judgment
and have overy confidence in the wiB-
dom nnd honesty of it.
Hut the Mayor is indignant; he is
even augry, and already threatens the
members of tho Hoard with the wrath
of the electors next January. There
are no questions of taste whore tho
Mayor is concerned, otherwise we
might venture to remark on this dis-
pluy of temper, lie professes to bo
concerned for the city. Ills real concern is to put a spoke Into the
wheel of the Tramway Co. whenever
he cau. Of course the price asked per
horn- power per annum In too large.
What this City needs.he says, is cheap
power, .lust so. Hut more sagacious
men than the Mayor will say that a
number of othor things will have to
become cheaper before we can hope to
see Nelson grow into a thriving man
ufacturing town. Cheap power i
one thing, but cheaper labor than can
be obtained tir'ay is even a greater
necessity. We also want cheaper rents
and cheaper living generally. It il
folly to expect that we can success
fully compete in manufacturing, with
the cost of production enhanced by
the Inflated prices that prevail here.
Cheap power is only ono of the coudi
tions that affect production, and tak
en hy Itself is an insignificant one
The Mayor does not explain why power should bo cheaper in Nelson th
other things are, although the fact
that it is proposed to bo supplied hy
the Tramway Co. is probably thought
to be explanation enough. Hut that
will not satisfy the reason of the majority, and when the people are lashed with the Mayor's threat they will
only laugh al It.
"I claim this for the Liberal Government," soys Mr Wilfrid Laurier,
"that we have endeavored to carry on
the policy of the country so as to
make Canada a notion. " The country

Two Eastern mails were supposed to
have been received in the City yesterday evening, one via the Crow'B Nest
and the other via Spokane. The Miner
daily receives exchanges from Halifax, St. Jonn, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg and other Eastern
points, as well as from New Y'ork, St.
Paul, and other American cities. Exchanges are necessary to a newspaper;
they are often the editor's principal
tools, for without them he could not
know what is uppermost in public
thought and what changes are really
taking place. Not a single Eastern
exchange was received at this office
by either of the mails that came in
yesterday evening. Whether this is
the fault of the railway mail clerks
or of the Postoffice here we do not
I;now; but it is a fault that is being
so repeatedly committed, in greater or
less degree, that the mall service for
Nelson can only be designated as one
of the worst in existence.
Hecause there is a Federal election
on it is not necessary that Provincial
affairs should stand still. Our Government at Victoria is under a public
pledge to appoint a Commission to inquire into the working of the various
Acts affecting the mining industry.
No step has been taken to fulfill this
pledge, although it is more necessary
now to do so than it was considered
to bo when made. Since that time
the tax on mineral output has been
doubled. In addition to the other
conditions more or less prejudicially
affecting the industry, there is this
new one to inquire into. The public
service cannot be maintained without tuxes, but it is poor policy to levy
a tax that discourages industrial enterprise and development. If the latest act of the Government does this it
is important the fact should be known
as soon as possible. The inquiry cannot be made too   soon.
Oui worthy namesake at Rossland
is distressing itself over a very small
mutter. The bogus Toronto Globe
which it says the wicked Tories have
circulated in the Eastern Provinces deceived nobody, and was never intended to deceive anyone. It was only an
elaborate and somewhat expensive
method to give emphasis to certain
Globe views and declarations. It was
a clumsy device, perhaps, but not a
dishonest one, and the fuss made over
it does not speak much for the perspicacity of those Liberal papers that
allowed thomeslves to get into a state
of mind over it.
There are few men in Canada who
know better what they are about than
does Mr. II. II. Cook. He was the
last man to say that he was required
to purchase his Sonators'.iip at a cost
of ten thousund dollurs unless it was a
fact. Now we have his statutory declaration of tho truth of his charge,
and of his readiness to produce evidence iu support of it. Mr. Cook Is

1*p��* Nbuu-n Daily Miner, Wednesday  Evening;  Octaber 31, 190a
(By Surah Beaumont Kennedy,) .
Everybody liked Hilly Brown, who
sold tickets at the Lyceum window.
The other men in the oiliue tcilil him
their secrets luul horrowotl his money,
and the little lulls who rented opera
Musses would have fought for him
any day an^ 6f-0-lea In tin) hattle.
Ilul the person whom Hilly desired
most to have like him was a blonde
matinee girl With soft eyes and gold-
glinted hair. She eaino so regularly
through the Bummer season that Billy
grew lirst to expect her, and then to
long for her.
"Yes, I have saved   you   something
���rood,   Miss  Ward,"  he  would   say,
while hia eyes lit up with   a pleasure
that  was    unniistakealile.    Antl    she
would smile haelc anil thank him with
: Bhy   modesty.    Once   when   a   sudden
Storm came up ho   carried  her to  the
oar under his umbrella,   but  she   hud
I declined his escort any further, so the
! season was near its close .mil lie really
i knew   very   little  of  her   beside  her
It was the last matinee   before   the
flitting of the singers, and   Billy  felt
[he   must   learn   something   of   her or
[life would   be   very   lonely   until the
I winter season opened.     Finally he de-
���elded on a bold step.   He chose two
���excellent seats and reserving   tho  oue
Ion the aisle   for himself  ho gave  her
[the other when she came.    "The   Bohemian  Girl"   was  the   bill   for  the
and the curtain hud just gone up
on the second net when   Hilly  slipped
Iquietly   into   tbe  vacant   seat   beside
(Miss   Ward,    .he   looked   at   him  at
first in startled  surprise; then colored
beautifully as she hesitatingly returned the   bow   he   gave    her.    He   had
neant to boldly start a   conversation,
but the music   was   beginning, so   he
had to content himself   with   offering
i her his .'glasses  und   picking   up   her
[fun.    At the next    interval,  however,
[be suid bravely us the curtain fell:
'Raffuel and little Myers are in fine
���voice today." To which she made
���polite but distant reply. But Hilly
Iwiis in love and desperate and uot to
[ he daunted, aud so with the utmost
[ deference he went on to talk of the
opera season, its artistic and financial
success. And gradually the girl unbent, bo that they were chatting like
old friendB when the curtain went up.
Then her attention returned to tho
stage; but Hilly sat studying her absorbed face, its delicate curves, its
sweet womanliness,and thinking What
life would mean to him if he hud u
wife like that to work for; he had always been such a lonely follow, witli
out mothet or sisters, nnd he wus so
warm-hearted and ail'ectionate that lie
felt his isolation keenly. Every word
the girl hud uttered convinced him he
had been right in his estimate of her
churaeter, and his loneliness grew up
[ on him.
"When oilier lips   und   other   eyes
Their tale of love shull toil���"
sang Haffnel in his clear, impassioned
voice;   and the girl, turning her head
suddenly, met Billy's   longing eyes in
a gaze it was impossible to   misinterpret.    For one fascinated   moment she
met thut gaze ; then   her lushes swept
I downward und a deep rose-tone suffnft-
ted her faco.
'When hollow shull weur a mask
'Twill break thine own to see,
: In sueh a moment 1 but ask
That you'll remember me,"
sang Kaffael, and   the   vust   audience
thrilled and stirred ; und   Hilly   leaning siduwise whispered into the small
eur near his shoulder:
"Will you remember me at   sueh   a
I would sell my soul to   servo   you!"
Again the soft eyeB met Mh full of a
vague   questioning;   then   apparently
satisfied, sank to the bunds clasped in
her lap.
"Pardon me," Billy " whispered
humbly, under cover of the applause,
for he trembled lest ho had offended
her, "but you Bee 1 have been watching you aud thinking ubout you all
summer, and so 1 seem to have known
you for ages. I should not have spoken thus, of course���but, by heaven,
I meant it!"
She made no reply, and it waa not
until the lust scone wus over that he
spoke again, then it wan only some
commonplace about tbe end of the sea-
sou. They came out of the theuter together, for he kept persistently by her
side. Hut on the corner she stopped.
"I wait for my car here. You
have been very kind to me this summer, Mr. Brown, aud 1 shall carry
away from your eity many grateful
memories of you.''
"You are leaving tlie city'.'" faltered Hilly.
"Yes; my stay here has been only
temporary; I have relatives elsewhere
who are claiming me."
"You will not come to the matinees
this winter'.'"
And Billy knew his plnec at the
ticket window would be unbearable.
Z The misery In his heart was depicted pluiuly on his face, and perhaps
that was'what made the girl put out
her bund.
"1 hope we shull meet again sometime. Good-bye." And she stepped
on the car that had paused ut her sig-
nul and was whisked away before
Billy caught his breath. Then he
cursed himself for a fool for not following her. He was "pushing"
enough in business matters, but somehow in her gentle presence he lost all
capacity for assertive action.
Tho autumn wns so dreary for Hilly
that he gave up his place at the Lyceum window and went on the road
as advunce agent for a new "star."
The change was a relief, but he still
lunged for a sight of the soft eyes and
gold-glinted hair, and still dreamed of
the home the owner might have made
for him. (Ine afternoon, in a Western city, having arranged for his company, ho dropped into the theater
where the Lyceum opera company,
now making u winter tour,was giving
a matinee peifornmnco of the "Bohemian Girl." lie thought it would
be pleasant to renew acquaintance
with the members of the troupe; but
once inside he had eyes but for one
person. In a box near the stage, so
near that he could almost touch the
rail witli his out-stretched arm, eat
May Ward, his summer matinee girl,
lie knew her nt once, although in her
soft eyes wns a light of troubled sadness he hud never seen there before.
Beside her wus an elderly woman with
a face as cold as it wus handsome, and
in the chair behind her lom.geit a
ycning man witli every ear-murk of the
dissipated man-ubout-town.
"Who are they?" repeated the theater attache who hud accompanied
Billy. "Oh, thnt is Mrs. Barrow
wilh her son and niece. Nice, is an
orphan recently come to live with the
Barrows who, because she is worth a
few thousand, are trying to force a
match between her and the sou who
is no-end-of-bad. It seems the girl's
father was the young fellow's guardian and lost a lot of his money, and
they are working that dodge on her to
rope her in.    Cursed mean trick"
Hut Billy was studying the girl's
pale face aud longing dumbly to
throttle the man behind her. Tbe
play went on, but he gave it scant
heed, for ho wan thinking of the last
time lie heard it in his far off native
eity. watching tho girl all tho while
with his love-hungry eyes.
"When other lips and other eyes
Their tales of love shall tell���"
sung Kaffael; nnd this audience, like
thut other one of the dend summer,
thrilled und stirred. Billy leaned
forward, breathing deep. Up in the
box the girl moved restlessly, her
glance sweeping the house as though
iu search of nn answering gance.
"In such a moment 1 but ask
Thut you'll remember me���"
Ah 1 their eyes had met���she hud remembered ! Antl then just as he had
reud the gladness of her glance there
came the booming sound of an explosion, und from the cracks in the
stage lloor issued puff, of white
smoke. For one nwful moment no
one moved, then came that cry moat
dreaded .if human listeners���"Fire!"
And the audience rose with one common impulse of self-preservation, and
shoved and .urged and shrieked. Out
of the box young Burrow darted, followed closely by Ins mother, leaving
the girl to take care of herself. White
and panting, she stood irresolute,gazing from the righting, surging crowd
in the aisles to the smoking stage. It
looked like death either way. Then
a hand caught hers and a strong arm
wus ubout her wuist, for Hilly, climbing over the   intervening   chairs, had
gained the box.
"I will snve you, never fear. Thank
God, I have found you!"
With a cry of joy she yoilded herself to him, and nlmoat currying her
be brought up the rear of the half
frantic throng whose goal was the dis
tunt door. But fuiuting women and
children retarded the onward rush,
nnd the vust mass of humanity swayed back and forth, nnd made no headway. Just behind Billy was a window ; to this he returned and throwing up the sash looked out. It waa
full 18 feet to the paved alley below,
but an ollicer wns in sight; to him
Hilly shouted, then turned to the
"It is your best chnncc.    Come."
But she held buck. "Not unless
you go with mo. "
"1 will follow," nnd lifting her
through the window he let her down
as far aa their joined hands would
permit, then dropped her into the
urms of tbe blue-eout. He thought to
follow ut once, but as he straightened up a mother thrust her little girl
into his arms. Imploring him to save
her. And so the child went to the
ollicer below, and the mother followed. Then others crowded about him.
and it was not until 111 women and
little ones hud been pussed over the
window ledge thut ho found himself
free to follow for the pressure in front
lind been relieved and the crowd was
Mowing into the street. When he
gained the pavement tho girl was
waiting for him with outstretched
hands, and together they ran down
the alley away from the burning
building to tne opposite street. There
they paused. She did not thank bun
in words for saving her, but the hand
be had held in their (light was not
withdrawn, and her eyes shone upon
him. full of tender admiration. In
bis dreams she had sometimes looked
at. bini thus.
"You did remember the song? You
did think of me?" he cried, forgetful of the  fire.
"Whenever a man has snid a word
of love to me since that day I have
thought of you."
l'assers-by were beginning to look
at them, lie saw her shrink from a
���orutlny and in a moment he had her
in n waiting cab.
"Where is your home?"he naked.
"No. 256 North���" alio began; then
with a gesture of   repulsion   she cried
out;    "1 have no home!"
He took her hands in his. "I saw
your aunt desert you, May; I saw that
selfish coward they want you to marry
save himself and leave you to perish.
You are right; their house can never
be your home. Will you mnrry me,
dear, and let us make a new home,
whoso ono law shull be love and happiness?"
She lifted her tender eyes. "Ever
since that other matineee I have felt
that you were mine, heart nnd soul;
lifter this one I belong wholly to you.
No other lipa or eyes must henceforth tell their tules of love to me." "

extensively interested in mines, says
the Spokane Chronicle, lie reports
I hat the outlook in the Slocan is better than it has been for the last two
The day Mr. Winstead left a strike
was reported on the Sunset of IS
Inches of high tirade ore. This was
in a different part of the mine from
where they were already getting out
oro. They also had two carloads of
me mined and ready to ship. Mr.
Winstead reports that the Sunset
mine on Jackson Creek has been sold
to Qeorge Hughes for (10,000 cash. It
was sold by Spokane parties. This is
a lead-silver property and will net
82,000 a car. There is ono carload
ready to ship and cnouglicire in sight
to pay for the mine.
Tbe second payment has been made
on the Fletcher group. This iH a gold
property and was reported to have
heen sold for 830,000. The owners
will start work in a short tune.

Bernard Maedonald, the general
manager of the B. A. C. and allied
companies, reached Kossland Monday
from a hurtled trip to London. When
Interviewed by a Kossland Record representative, Mr. Maedonald said:
"My trip to London was only for
the purpose of making a general report on the mines here to the directors
of the Hritish America Corporation
and allied companies. It was tne intention of these gentlemen to visit
Rossland this fall, but they were prevented and I was cabled to come over
instead. I spent 13 days in London.
There was nothing specially laid before the directors beyond the general
conditions of the mines here and the
outlook for the future. I may say that
the directors were very well pleased
indeed with my verbal report, and expressed their evident satisfaction at
the results attained so far, and at the
outlook for tbe coming year. There
will be no change in the policy adopted in developing the mines. 'The chief
difficulty that we are encountering at
the present time is the lack of smelter
facilities. .lust now there are over
forty-five thousand tons lying in the
yard at Northport and it is useless in
pushing shipments and simply piling
the ore up there. 1 expect that hy
the commencement of tho year the additions and improvements at Nortli-
porl will he finished anil then we can
Increase the BhipmentS, For the present the only thing we can do is to pile
up the ore here which is taken out in
development and ship later when the
smelter has caught np. This applies
specially to the l.e Koi No. 2 and the
Great Western mines. There is practically nothing new to tell you heyoiid
what I have stated.
��� ��� ���
Kossland. !!.('.. Oct. 31. ��� Late news
from the Rambler-Cariboo is of an encouraging nature and snows that it is
a mine of more than ordinary worth.
This is shown by the ret urns from
::- tons of ore which wus the last shipment made. This shipment went
511.'.i ounces and 03.3 per cent, in lead
to the ion. The I- tons yielded 811,-
508,30, Seven other carloads were
recently sent to the smelter and yielded from 81,200 lo 81,600 net each to the
COmOany.     These seven carloads   were
taken from the old workings, The :is
Ions were from a new lind on the :i;,n-
fool level going north into the hill.
In tin bottom of the winze on the
450 foot level while drifting on the
ore body there has just heen encountered full face of ore'that carries over
2(12 ounces and over 00 per cent, lead
to the Ion. During the past summer
there was installed nn the Rambler-
Cariboo the largest plant iu the Sloean.
'I lie property has heen developed by
a Berics of three tunnels which have
opened it I" a depth of 350-feel on tlie
lirst or Xo. I ore shoot. A winze hus
been sunk from the bottom of the No.
:i tunnel to u depth of LIT, feet and is
in ore all the way to the bottom. The
intention is to deepen this winze to
the 050-foot level aud to drift along
the ledge at each 1(1(1 feet. This will
be on the first ore shoot. The richer
ore of the mine from which the 33
tons above mentioned wus tuken is
found in a drift on the 850-foot level,
which is now extended over -0(1 feet
beyond the first ore shoot. The drift
is being extended north through the
hill in order to tap a third ore shoot
which shows up so prominently In tho
croppings on the surface; when vertically under   the   third   ore   shoot tho
depth will he 000 feet. Tho management purposes extending this drift
still further and out to the surface on
the other side of the hill. Just over
the crest of the hill there is ft fourth
ore shoot. This will be tapped at a
depth of 1,300 feet. ThiB will give
plenty of backs for shipping. When
tlie drift is completed a crosscut will
be run at right angles to the drift iu
order to tap four ledges of dry ore
which carry -101 ounces of silver to the
ton. Thoie is no lead in these dry ore
ledges. These ledges are parallel to
the ledge whieh is now being worked.
It is expected that the main drift
will be completed through the property by the first of May next. It
will be '-',000 feet iu length when finished.
All of the ore that is under 50
ounces silver to the ton is placed on
the dump and the management Bays
there Is 8350,000 worth of this second
class ore. The intention is to erect a
concentrator and concentrate this ore.
-Vow that winter is coming on the
snow will enable the shipment of the
ore to the railroad for loss cost than
In the summer. And the determination is to largely increase the shipments.
*   ���   ���
W. F. DuBols, superintendent of
the Arlington mine, near Slocan City,
is in Nelson today. He states that
everything has heen going satisfactorily at the mine since the new road has
been completed. They are now shipping about three carloads of ore per
week to the Hall Mines smelter. A
number of improvements have been
made at the mine. Two large ore bins
are being erected, one having been
completed and the other nearly Bo. A
new olliee is also being erected. Five
teams are engaged in hauling the ore
fiom the mine.

A newspaper reporter dreamed one
night that the editor had decided to
get out an edition that was entirely
satisfactory to everyone. Every item
that was brought in was carried all
around to different houses and if any
objections were raised it was promptly "killed." At :i p. m. the paper
went to press as usual, and when the
patrons unfolded it that evening they
found nothing but a blank sheet. The
editor of the paper   slept sweetly that
night, realizing that ho  had printed
nothing to offend   anybody, and   that
his paper was entirely satisfactory.

Probably one of the most interesting civil eases ever hard in Nelson,
was opened ut the Court House this
morning before Mr. Justice Walkem,
when tho case of Henley vs. the Keeo
Mining Company came up for trial.
The suit has arisen out of a poker
game which wus played at Sandon
about the middle of November, 18HH,
ind in which J. M. Harris, president
of the mining company, lost heavily
mil paid a portion of his debt in Keeo
shares. Those who were in the game
ure Mr. Harris, Mr. Arthur, Mr. Peterson aud 11. flauck, the latter being
one of the cleverest caid gamblers in
the west. Each of the other gamblers
received from Harris a large quanitty
of stock. Mr. Arthur after tbe game,
returned to his home in Spokane, and
on Nov. 18, 1898, he borrowed 81,500
from a Mr. Henley of Spokane,the latter receiving for security .500 of the
Reco slinres. At another time Mr.
Arthur borrowed Bonie more money
from Henley nnd again the latter received 2,500 shares of the Bame stock.
Henloy bus now on his hands 0,000
shares of the Keeo stock. The Reco
Company refuse to transfer^ the stocks
on their books to Henley, as they assert that the shares were at first obtained by fraud in that the game of
poker was "crooked." Mr. Henley
was the ony witness exuminted for
the plaintiff this morning and he simply told of the manner in which he
had obtained the Keeo stock certificates.
William Harris, of Sloean City, who
is now in the Provincul jail here
waiting Hal on a charge of attempting to committ suicide some time ago.

ganted a speedy trial,and the case will
probably be called before judge Forin
in a few days. Harris was granted

AnOpen Letter
To Voters
And Voters' Wives,
Dear Sir, and Madam :
I am a candidate for your
favor, for the position of leading jeweler of this good city
of Nelson.
I submit my platform for
your consideration :
I am opposed to " ways
that are dark" in business,
and favor open and honest
methods with the public. 1
represent values as they actually are, and " call a spade a
spade " when I describe the
different qualities of goods.
I am in favor of selling
goods at such a profit only
over cost as will enable me to
continue business successfully, looking to my prosperity
in the large volume of business which will result in selling at moderate prolits.
I am in favor of taking
trouble to please customers,
by returning their repair worn
promptly and keeping my
store clean, bright and attractive.
I respectfully solicit your
vote and iniluenee���
Antl a visit to  my store.
Sincerely yours,
T.   H.   BROWN.
