Eleventh   Year
[AY CAPTURE
GEN. DEWET
Big Fight In  Progress Between British and Boer
Forces.
Evening Standard ReportSays
Boer General May Be
Captured.
London, Deo. 1.���Tho Evening
[tandnrd reports thnt a great light is
Hft progress between Oeneral Knox and
Oeneral Dewet near Houxvllle, in the
iOiitlicastern extremity of the Orange
River Colony, and that the capture- of
Oeneral Dewet is considered imminent.  ^_
LOOKS BAD   IN CUINA.
Pessimistic Views of the Situation By
Leading London Papers.
^London, .Dec. 1.���The Spectator in a
Striking article dealing with the Chinese crisis, expresses the opinion that
the most recent developments at Pekin, foreshadows Chinese victory over
the allies. "The quarrel has heen
brought to the testing point," it says,
"and tho force on the civilized side
has proved Insufficient. This result is
mainly due to the attitude of Russia
and the United States. If China escapes with the payment of a small indemnity and many promises on paper,
as seems not unlikely since Germany
and Oreat Britain may not he willing
to incur the expenditure in the risk
involved in persisting in their de-
fc'.lBands, it will he equivalent to a vic-
IBtbry for China,for nothing has occurr-
K0O which will convince the Chinese
|bat their mighty Empress has heen
sfcated or that Europe can avenge
iy future massacres."
The Shanghai correspondent of The
lorning Post wiring yesterday says:
i'Despite the cordial reception given
Admiral Seymour, the situation is unchanged. The Nankow Viceroy refuses
Ko stop sending supplies to the court
jtnless the Nankin Viceroy will also
Refuse; and the latter although he un-
|ertakes to send no moro arms says he
lust continue sending supplies so
long as the Emperor requires them.
Jin fact all our remonstrances amount
Bo a miserable farce. We have no
[courage to do more than to talk. In
'the Chinese theatre here the allies are
represented hy a soldier with an enormous mouth who does nothing hut
talk until his career is ended by de-
ipitation."
.RUSSIA FRIENDLY   TO CHINA.
tive of an overture from the military
authorities it will su^geBt that the
highest civil authorities in South Africa should begin the negotiations, if
not Sir Alfred Milner, then the Chief
Justice of Capo Colony, or even Mr.
J. II. Ilofmeyer. The great financial
journal will load up to its proposal
by an analysis of the situation in
South Africa and will say: "We are
losing in every way;, losing in prestige, and losing in trade. We aro seeing our South African possessions
plunged into greater antl greator distress aud tho opinion is gaining
ground abroad that we aro incapable
of bringing tbe struggle to a satisfactory termination."
Military incompeteuco will be alleged and The Statist will aver that military harshness sliould be avoided and
tho Boers bo conciliated. "If men
like Botha and Dewet voluntarily surrender and bind themselves to act
against us in tbe future," The Statist
will say, "is there any reason why a
promise should not he given not to
send them out of the country? Mr. J.
11. Robinson suggests that Botha aud
Dewet should be invited to take seats
iu the legislative council that will be
established. The suggestion is worthy
of approval. The Boers sliould not be
excluded, even from tho beginning
from anything which oan safely bo
given them."
THEY LIKE WHITE.
Berlin, Nov. 30.���United StateB Am-
bassdor White's speech at the Thanksgiving Day banquet of tho American
colony in Berlin, has been received
with favor by all sections of the press,
even the tiovernment organs publishing it in full. The Berliner Tageblatt says: "We aro accustomed to
hear from Mr. White, words which do
justice to the aims of Germany and
Bhow an intimate knowledge of German mind. It is in a large degreo
due to his diplomatic skill and worth
that the relations between the United
States and Germany even during very
critical times have remained undisturbed and friendly; having their
foundation in mutual respect."
HARD ON THE GERMANS.
Berlin, Dec. 1.���The German losses
in China from typhoid and climatic
diseases generally, continue large despite semi-oflicial denials. Indeed,
the oflicial despatches themselveB furnish proof of the inroads of fever as
they daily announce the number of
deaths. Consequently volunteers for
tbe China reserves are becoming more
and more scarce.
TOO HARD OP.
London, Dec. 1.���It is probable,
says tho Constantinople correspondent
of tho Standard, that tho contract for
a cruiser to bo built in the United
States,will be cancelled as scon ns the
Kentucky departs, for it is difficult
to see how the money ia to be   found.
Opinion of The Times Correspondent
on the Latest Developments.
London, Dec. 1.���Dr. Morrison
wiling to The Times from Pekin yesterday, says: M. DeOieru, Russian
Minister, who had previously assented to all the terms of the cojoint note,
including the death penalty cause,
bus now intimated to the Chinese envoys that Russia, ever actuated by a
aincere friendship for China, will insist either upon the revision of tbe
'death penalty elauso, substituting a
��� provision that the guilty shall be
punished hy tho Chinese in a mannei
acceptablo to the Powers, or that the
terms of the note shall not be irrevocable, but may be modified by negotiations with the Chinese envoys. Russia has thus again proclaimed how
farcioinl is tlie so called convert.
The Cliinese envoys are kept well informed regarding the discussions and
disputes of the Ministers at their
meetings. So intimate, indeed, are
the relations of Li Hung Chang with
the Russians thut there is no reason
why he should be invited to attend
the conferences of the Ministers.
Japan requires that the note be mended by stipulating that China shall
ereot a monument to tho murdered
Sugyama.her Chancellor of Legation."
CZAR'S CONDITION.
St. Petersburg, Dec. 1.���Information received through private sources
confirms the recent favorable bulletins
referring to tho Czar's health. His Majesty has made such genuine improve
ment that his condition seems to
promise certain recovery.
BOBS' MOVEMENTS.
Durban, Natal, Dec. 1.���Lord   Roberts is due to arrive  ut   Pietormnritz-
burg, Deeombcr 4, and  should   arrive
here December_0.
MAKES A BIG-
SALE OF ORE
St. Eugene Mining Go. Sells
to a Big Chilian Syndicate,
Will Purchase One Million
Dollars' Worth of Ore
Per Year.
HOW TO PAY UP.
Turkey Making An Effort to Hand
Over Indemnity on the Sly.
Washington, Dec. 1.���No proposition has come to the United States
Government from Turkey looking to
the puyment of the missionary claims
under the guise of nn order for a war-
Bhip to bo built in the United StateB.
While it is hardly expected that any
formal proposition of this kind will
be forthcoming, it is of course, beyond tbe power of the State Department to prevent or intorfere with any
arrangements that the Turkish Government may enter into with American ship builders and individual
claimants. The point is after all, to
have the claims paid and tho State
Department oflicials are not very particular ns to the form,in which claims
are paid. Perhaps they are indifferent In this respect bocause of tbo
knowledge of tho fact   that the Turk-
Thc largest ore deal ever aranged in
British Columbia has been eonsuroat-
ed by the St. Eugene Consolidated
Mining Company, of Moyie, by which
the Messrs. Guggenheim ,_ Sons, the
smelter people of Antogagasta, Chili,
contract to purchaso 81,000,000 of reduced wet silver-lend ore per yenr from
the Moyie mines.
Tho denl is of great importance, not
only on account of its size, but owing to tbe fact that the desire of the
Chili smelters to seoure the wet silver-lead ores of Kootenay for fluxing
purposes may cause a boom in those
ores.
In the past three months, $150,000
of this ore has been shipped via the
C. P. R. ,to Vancouver aud hy steamer
to San Francisco, where it is transferred into other steamers for Chili.
At the present time, a gang of men
nre engaged in Backing 1,000 tons of
the Moyie ore for shipment, but there
is some delay caused by the famine
in sacks now prevalent there. Tho
ore will run in its reduced state about
.50 n ton. Next week another shipment of 8150,000 worth of oro will take
plnce. In fact the demand is only limited by the supply, and the possibility
of getting the oro forward.
The St. Eugene mines which ure
producing this vast wealth, are owned
by the Gooderham-Blackstock syndi-
cite. They wero originally owned by
a Catholic priest, who was shown the
outcropping ore body by an Indian.
The sale of the mines by the priest
enabled him to build exclusively with
the money he received from the Gooderham-Blackstock syndicate a handsome church, which he called the
Saint Eugene Mission. Owing to the
success of the St. Eugone mines Moyie
has sprung from a village to a city in
a few months, and St. Eugene Mission is famed throughout the Kootenays.

manner.

Bart., Hon. N. Clarke Wallace, formerly ft member of tho Dominion Cabinet, and Mr, John McKane, Yale-Cnr-
ihoo's next member in the House of
Commons. Prof. Alexander, who has
engaged the Opera House for the week
will commence his lecture at H o'clock

at nine. Great Interest is being
manifested iu tho meeting and there
Is no doubt that the house will be
crowded. Mr. John Toye will be
chairman and prominent Consoiva-
tives will occupy seats on the stage.
This will be the last opportunity that
tho Conservatives of Nelson will have
to hear the veteran leader of the party
on political matters and it is hopeil
that hiB reception will bo most enthusiastic.
Sir Charles is resting quietly at the
Hotel Phair today, nnd although he
did not retire until an early hour this
morning, having been the guest of
honor at the annual banquet of the
St. Andrew's Society last night, he
looks, ns he Bays he feels, "us fit as ��
fiddle."
Hon. Mr. Wallace arrived this morning from Trail, where he addressed an
enthusiastic meeting Um evening.
In conversation with a representative
of The Miner this afternoon Mr.
Wallace said thnt he lind spent some
days in both Burrard and Yale-Cariboo. He bus had great experience in
sizing up political campaigns and ho
has quite made up his mind that in
both constituencies the Conservatives
will bo successful. There is no doubt,
he says, about Mr. Garden's election
over Mr. Maxwell. Mr. Garden is a
splendid campaigner and Mr. Maxwell
is not very well liked in tbe constituency. Regarding the local contest Mr.
Wallace bases his opinion on the result of moetiugs whieh ho has attended and reports ho has received from
other points. Kamloops and Revelstoke,he says will each gi ve a majority
of onu hundred to Mr. McKane and
they are but samples of what the more
northern pointB will do. In the southern part of the eonstituency Mr. Me-
Knnc is putting up a groat fight aud
the Conservatives are rallying around
him in a manner that can only mean
a substantinl majority. Mr. Wallace
lenves for Kuslo tomorrow to attend
to some mining   business on Monduy.
Sir Charles Tupper leaves tomorrow
evening for Vancouver, where there
will be n big meeting in -Mr. Garden's Interests on Tuesday, to be addressed by Sir Charles aud the Hon.
T. Mayne Daly. Sir Charles Hibbert
Tupper and Mr. Nicholas Flood Ilnv-
in will address meetings in other
parts of the constituency.
by many people that the matter
should not be stirred up. Anyway.
the petition was not signed personally by the speaker as W. A. Gitllibcr.
hut officially as the vice-president of
a mining company. Ho was uot really
against the eight-hour law, for he
bad drafted a petition against the reopening of that question. But he was
not a weak man and was not coerced
into Bigning_ the petition, ho did not
sign anything ho did not want to."

Saint Andrews' and Caledonian Societies Enjoy Banquets.
Two banquets were given last night

GALLIHER EXPLAINS.
Tells How He Came to Sign the Famous Petition.
Mr. W. A. Galliher explained to n
Rossland audionco Thursday evening
his connection with that now famous
eight-hour law petition. In its report
of tho meeting The Rossland Miner
says:
"Mr. McArthur, in Introducing Mr.
Gallihcr, said with regard to the signed petition, that it was easy to get
any amount of signatures to auy petition.
"Mr. W. A. Galllher was greeted
witli some applause. He regretted In
opening his speech that personalities
had been Introduced into the campaign by Mr. McKane, whom he had
thought was a friend of his. As to
the petition, the speaker, although
there had been proof submitted, that
bo had signed It, had no recollection
of having dons so, even at the present
moment. (Laughter). The speaker
claimed that at the time of signing

The Ferry in tho River Near Spokane
Capsized.
Spokane, Dec. 1.���Four lives were
lost here last night by the capsizing of
a ferry boat in the Spokane River.
The ferry is about two miles down
the river. It was crossing the stream
with 18 workmen, who had ended
their day's work in ft construction
camp on the Great Northern new
bridge. 'I'he men crowded to the bow
and it was forced under the swift current and the boat was swamped.
All tho men were thrown into the
water. Five swain to the shore and
the others climbed on the capsized
boat. The waves ran high and washed
four of them off to bo drowned, '."he
dead are: L. Simons, colored; .lack
Lovott   and   two unknown Italians.
THE CANAL BILL.
Washington, Nov. no.���There were
a number of Republican Senators at
the eupital today, and they wero In
informal conference during the greater purl of tbo time concerning the
business likely to come before Con-
gross during the npprouching session.
With reference to the Nicaragua Canal bill, there was manifest in the various talks some disposition to have it
await action on the Hay-Paunccfote
treaty and the suggestion was made
on the part of at least ono Republican
leader that canal legislation of this
session should be confined to authorization to acquire a property right cf
way for tbe canal.
ARE GROWING DISCONTENTED.
Montreal Dec. 1.���Tho continued
apnthy of the uuthoriticB in face of
increasing agitation for the capture
of Thomas J. Chlsbolm, late mannger
of the Montreal Cold Storage and
Freezing Co., who skipped ball, nnd
is understood to be In either Boston
or New York, Is causing much Indignation on 'Change bore, and it is
probable a general meeting of tbe
Board of Trade will be called to take
action rcgnidlng the matter. It Is as
soiled that Chisholm's iKindsmen have
not yet been called upon to forfeit the
amounts for which they were security.
Something More About the
Muddle In the Fire
Department.
In The Tribune this morning Mr.
Houston asks Tho Miner to give the
names of the twenty-six business men
interviewed by a representative of
this paper in regard to the muddle in
the firo department. Mr. Houston,
being a newspaper man, knows that
it would be unfair to use ono name
without the permission of the person
quoted. He uIbo knows that in a
tow.i the size of Nelson business men
do not care to bo quoted in such a
matter. The three men he interviewed himself would not allow their
names to be used and for thnt reason
Mr. Houston simply referred to them
as business men.
The Miner will make this proposition to Mr. Houston. If he will publish in the columns of his paper the
names of five reputable property
owners of Nelson who are willing to
be quoted as saying that Mr. Houston's action in dismissing Chief
Thompson and in appointing Mr. Bigelow meets with their entire approval,
The Miner will print the names of
ten business men who are willing to
be quoted as expressing entire disapproval of such action. If Mr. Houston can secure ten names The Miner
will agree to secure twenty, or if Mr.
Houston can secure UJty names of ordinary citizens, The Miner will undertake to secure 10(1 names.
The Miner is not taking up the fight
of tho fire department against Mr.
Houston. This controversy began because of Mr. Houston's universally
condemned action in connection with
the matter. But Mr. Houston does
the firemen nn Injustice this morning.
Ho says they aro living at the Firo
Hull to "keop down their living expenses." It costs every fireman who
lives at the Fire Hall 8-5 per month
for his living expenses. The firemen
have been offered board In an hotel
near the Fire Hall for less than this.
No further comment is needed.
Tho Miner desires to apologize to
its renders for inflicting them with Bo
much of this lntest Houston episode.
In all it says, however, it Is voicing
the sentiments of Nelson's solid business men. For that reason it feels itself perfectly justified in replying to
Mr. Houston's vain efforts to justify
his notion. Mr. Houston has it paper
of bis own which is his representative
in the controversy. Tlie Miner represents in this controversy tho business
Interests of the City.
RAISING THE CUTCH.
With Fow Facilities Wrecked Steamer
Is   '-I.Vi-.l.
Vancouver, Dec. 1.���The raising of
the steamer Cutch was an almost unique.achievement In shipping work.
Larger vessels than the Cutch have
been successfully raisod before.wrecks
just as had have been righted, but
seldom under as unfavorable conditions as existed in this case.
The Cutch went ashore on llorso
Shoe Reef while on a trip to Skagway. She wns going at full Bpecd at
tbe time. A lnrge hole was' torn out of
her bow, and plates wero also crushed
In amldship. The work for the salvers
seemed almost hopeless from tho
start.
Captftiu Newcombe, however,
thought otherwise. There were no
wrecking facilities In the far north,
but tho captain set about creating
them. A small steamer was obtained
from Juneau and the work of rescue
began. Bulkheads were built across
tho body of the ship and the pomps
started. Every possible ounce of
steam wns put on and the water taken
out of tho oncloBed space. One attempt to raise the bhip was made,
which failed, and tho vessel was lowered again on the rocks. The second
effoit was successful, and with the
steamer Ruth alongside, the Cutch
was landed on Treadwcll beach. There

to oultlvate his acquaintance���to judgo
from speech and manner whether he
would serve ns faithfully and creditably at Ottawa, should we give him
such aid as to secure bis electioj. To
satisfy themselves on this point, there
will no doubt be many to attend at
the meeting. We believe they will
come away pleased with the Opposition candidate. He is a straightforward, honorable man, and givea that.
impression of himself in personul intercourse with him. He is by no
' means dogmatic, but has pronounced
views, and is frank and emphatic in
his expression of thorn. There will bo
no difficulty in understanding what ho
believes, or believing that he will adhere to it and maintain it against all
odds and in spite of all opposition,
lie knows the wants of this constituency, so fur as they can be supplied
or assisted by legislation at Ottawa, and he is just the kind of man to
"stay with tho job" until he gets
them. We owe him something, too,
for that happy characterisation ("political brat") of the gentleman who
has been appointed secretary of the
Mongolian Commission; a person so
apt in phrases is likely to command
attention in the House.
It is natural and proper that tho
candidate himself should bo the chief
attraction at his own meeting; but
circumstances are somewhat against
Mr. McKane tonight, and he will do
well to come in a good second. Nearly half a century ago Sir Charles
Tupper began his political life down
in Nova Scotia; tonight ho is virtually closing it in Nelson, British Columbia. It may not be his last public appearance or last public speech
sb a politician; hut after tonight the
veteran statesman will be seen on few
platforms. It is in this City he takes
his final leave of that active political
life in which he has so long been engaged, with such distinction for him-
sell and with such benefit for tho
country he served so faithfully. lie
is resigning tlie leadership of his
party, nnd Is about to seek that rest
in retirement which his advanced
years will render so grateful. The
delay in the elections in Burrard and
Yale-Cariboo has procured for us the
privilege and pleasure of having him
with us tonight. To him this meeting is the closing one of the great
campaign of llioo, which will remain
memorable In the history of those
events by reason of the extraordinary
activity of tho veteran lender, who
in his eightieth year has visited overy
Province of this Immense Dominion
and spoken from platforms In almost n
hundred cons itiienoles. It Is fitting
tint this great builder of Canadian
Confederation, tliia statesman of Imperial renown, should close a political
life begun in an Atlantic Province In
this other, laved by the Pnclfio,
which he was most instrumental in
making a pari of the Dominion. The
people of Kelson will pay him the
compliment of unending the meeting
tonight in such numbers that we shall
realise more than ever before how inadequate is the accommodation on
the occasion of great popular events.
Another speaker tonight will he Mr.
Clarke Wallace, a loader of the party
in Ontario, a man of political integrity beyond suspicion, who has strong
views and great force of character.
Ho will contribute largely to the in-
teiest of the meeting.

Vancouver,   H. C, Deo.    1.���Jiipttn-
i nuturalizntion   frauds   have again
ten the subject of offlolal  Inquiry in
���nneeiuvi'i-.    Mr. Reed,  acting United
ates   Immigration    Commissioner,
iill.i>>i* that lie might nid the Brit-
Columlba  Oovernment,   who ex-
fesaed a desire   to   expose the whole-

to t'niise who held the eertilieates.
Subsequently Mr. Reed wired the. department nt Washington informing
them of his aetiein, ami sn^esting-
that if it was their wish to take action   in   tlie   matter, the   opportunity
���is favorable. The reply from Washington was that the fact that Japanese
seekinK residence in tlie United States
held suspicious liritisli naturalization
papers was no bar to their receiving
passports from a United States Immigration Commissioner, uud thut the
men referred to must be allowed to
pass, with their papers. Mr. Reed
acted accordingly. It is learned at
the United States Immigration Oflice
that in October,'.(ll) Japauese and Chinese orosscd the horiler to the south

VICTIMS TO AMBITION.
Children That Have Succumbed to
Effects of Over Education.
Within one week recently four cases
of lunai'y. were reported, either in or
near New York City, which were in-
duoed by overstudy. The ages of the
Victims- that is what they sliould he
called���Hinged from \2 to '.'J years,the
oldest being a culletritin who, in a
mad desire to gratify his parents'
ambition to have him becoruo a
"scholar," found means to support
himself by night work, whieh meant,
in his ease,going in at s o'clock to at-
|P__l to customc- at a bar while the
[jar attendant took a few hours'
p. At 12 o'clock the collegian's
cetiscd, but "he was that tired
y night that tho sleep went off of
ai.A left his head light."
e youngest case was that of a boy
Of ,12,who was daily urged by his parents to heat that oilier boy. His
teachei, also, finding the boy bright
and ambitious, advanced him in his
classes and crowded mure work upon
him than mi yeiiing a child could bear,
and the result was enily what might
have henn expected.
.wl is hardly natural for very young
p6(_on- tee leese tlle-il niiiiils, and it is
safe tei say that the uientul strain
which leads to such irreparable misfortune is generally tension for whieh
some injudicious elders are responsible. Life dues not ordinarily lay
auch a heavy hand upon children that
iU pressure drives them mad, as it
sometimes docs to those who are hearing the hcut aud burden of the day.
Llgrtt-hearted childhood ia volatile
enough to throw off ordinary caros
with ease, but to tax the memory and
demand closo application to study for
many hour, in a day is a dangerous
experiment iu all cases.
Among families of moro or leas
wealth tho pliysicial care of their
ildren is an cver-ptesent thought,
and in most cases it is the children of
the Industrious workingmen who are
tha sufferer from overstudy.
On reflection it is too swooping,
perhaps, to say parcut'i of the richer
class are more juilicious than tbe
other. Against that assertion stands
a monument In a Massachusetts graveyard erected In memory of a very
wealthy man's son who died, the Inscription suys, of brain fever at tbe
age of 11 years. After paying some
touching words of tribute to the boy's
amiability and patience thu epitaph
detils his sinuglar mental attainments
__pe having been a remarkable Greek
id Latin scholar, entitled by exam-
tion to enter college."

the Bake of his parents' peace of
nd, no one bad ever suggested a
bublo cause for the brain fever.���

Telegraph Company in place of the
familiar messenger call boxes, says a
dispatch in tho Chicago Chronicle.
Thoy are hoing manufactured in Chicago and will be placed ns soon as a
sulllcient number aro completed. The
ttutophono will occupy but little more
space on the wall than tho call box.
It consists of a circular transmiter,
from which is suspended an ordinary
telephone receiver by thu usual hook,
und the use of the instrument in its
present form will be confined to the
direct transmission of messages from
the subscriber to the district messenger olliee. As there is no call bell attached to the autophone the orlice ean
not call up the subscriber.niaking it in
effect a one way telephone. The instrument has proved of tho greatest
value for transmitting calls for the

KUUO.ER IN GERMANY.
Iierlin, Deo. 1.���The semi-oflicial
statement that Mr. Kruger is coming
here is discussed eautiousy. It is regarded as premature to predict that
Emperor William will receive him.
There is no appreciable sign of a public demonstration and some of the papers warn the public to beware of a
policy of sentiment, pointing ont that
Germany is not in a position to
change tho fate ot the Transvaal and
deprecating manifestations which are
likely to clash with tho Government's
policy.

A marriage license was today issued
to Mr. ICmil Magmison and Miss Ida
Johnson, both oi Nelson.
Lectures to men only will be given
at 3 p. ni. and 8:45 p. m. Sunday, in
tho Opera House, by Prof. Alexander.
During the offertory to be given In
St. Saviour's Church tomorrow evening
for the General Hospital, Mrs.Melville
Parry will sing Dudley Buck's "Fear
Not Ye.O Israel!"
Tomorrow evening at 7:30 there
will bo a special Bervice of song in
Emmanuel Church. Good music will
be rendered by the choir and Rev.
Wm. Munroe will preach on "The
Song of the Redeemed." A cordial invitation is extended to all.
As a result of the visit of J. M.
Duncan, a special organizer of the
Canadian Order of Foresters, to Nelson, it is expected that the numerical
strength of the local lodge will be
greatly encreased. Mr. Duncan will
remain here a couple of weeks.
The macadamizing of Baker Street
between Stanley and Kootenay Streets
was ugain started this morning.
Since repaired the crusher is working
most satisfactorily and if nothing interferes the street --ill probably be
finished in less than two weeks.
Mayor Houston again this morning
uses about half a column of space in
reply to The Miner's charge that The
Tribune printing orlice is not a union office. No where, however, in
the article is there a denial of the
charge made. Mr. Houston, himself
knows better than any man that his
office is not a union office and cannot
therefore deny the accusation.
Dr. C. A. Tunstall, brother of George
Tnnstall, of Nelson, arrived in this
City last evening from Kamloops and
will spend a couple of days here. Dr.
Tunstall was in Nelson in 1891. Since
that time he has traveled extensively
in foreign lands and only recently returned to Canada from Australia. He
is much surprised at the growth of
Nelson. "I understand," he said to
some friends this morning, "that
George (his brother) has mastered
the Chinese language and I am here
for the purpose of arranging with
him to conduct a laundry at Barker-
ville."
The next County Court of Kootenay
that will be held at Nelson after the
one on Monday December 10, has been
fixed for March 4, 1001.
Hugh Mel'herson, who had his ribs
fractured, during a fight late.Thursday night and who wits at once takon
to the City jail, was removed to the
General Hospital as his case was becoming quite serious.
Mrs. Elizabeth Stevens of Sandon,
lias purchased from J, S. Robbins,
one-quarter interest in Kulispell and
one-third interest in Alta, both situated near Hall Siding,for a consideration of $400.
Adolph Goderow, who professes to
run a boarding house at Crawford
Hay came before Magistrate Crease at
the Court House this morning to answer to tho charge of selling liquor
without a license. Tho evidence of
Mrs.McGregor,was taken but little information was secured. The cuse was
then adjourned until 2 o'clock, when
was continued nt the General Hospital as Hugh Mel'herson, who is there
suffering from broken ribs, was a
witness in the case. After this the
case was resumed at the Court House
and will be completed late this afternoon.

Merchandise has its place in the Preparations for the Xmas Season.   The attractiveness
of the Goods to be found in all our Departments will make brisk selling for the next three weeks.
Christmas Dolls.
Our new line of Dolls is now
on display. While the quality is
of the highest, the price is so
modestly low that you will be surprised at the size of the doll you
can get for a dollar or two.
Jointed Dolls, Kid-bodied Dolls,
new French-shape Dolls, Blond
Dolls, Brunette Dolls, 9 to 27
inches;  35c to$ 8.50.
Silk Waists.
Nothing but the finest Taffeta,
Liberty Satins and Liberty Silks,
from $3.50 to $15.
Furs.
The great demand for Furs this
season was recognized by us very
early���in time to make selections
when they were at their best.
Whatever there is for ladies to
wear, made of Fur, will be found
in this department at very low
prices.
Handkerchiefs
Winter Gloves
And Mittens in great variety.
The very latest style in Gloves is
the Suede, Castor and Mocha.
These Gloves are nice for cold
weather, as they are much warmer
than dressed kid. We carry these
lines in black, mole, tans and
greys, $1.50 to $2.00.
Eiderdown Comforts.
You lose most of your handkerchiefs, the laundries wear out
the rest, and your handkerchief
case needs constant filling. We
have them from 5c to $7.50 each.
The cold snap which we have
just experienced, suggests what
we may expect when the winter
sets in in earnest, so get your
Comforts now and be ready.
Prices, $1.50 to $?5.00.
