The Two Roads Now Building Insure Great Activity
ANENT_.IGHTHOUI.LAW
Mr. Smith Curtis' MiE-Statements Rectified-���How a Saw Kill Beached
Dunoan Oity.
���n,-
Mr. Q. O. Buchanan, of Kaslo. spent
yesterday in tho city. Sir. Buchanan
reports tbo outlook for the Upper
Kootenny as very bright for ensuing
y.'iirs. In conversation with a Miner
representative he said:
��� "The Duncan River country is
going to be a woutlerfully productive
section, bh is evidenced by the im-
nii'iifio amount of activity throughout
tlm whole region. There aro lurge on;
IioiHhs in many places opened sufficiently to show their permanence, and
hundreds of valuable claims with
enough work done on them to prove
that they are shippers in the future.
At the present time the shipping facilities aro limited, but that is being
remedied as fnst as money and men
oan do it. Two ines of railway, viz:
The Kaslo, Lardo & Duncan River
road nud tbe Canadian Pacific Railroad
are building from Lake Kootenay into
the h?_rfc-qf thu country. The Kaslo,
Lardo & Duncan Kiver road commences at Argenta and runs up the
enst bink ol the Duncan river and the
O'lnadioU Faoifio Railroad starts at
Lardo and runs up the west bank of
the Duncan until it reaches Dimcav
City, where it crosses tho river nud
lunches Upper Kootenay Lake. From
ilin lake the Canadian Pncifio Railroad
runs un the right bank of the Lardo
river for somo miles and then crosses
the river and runs up the left bank for
Trout L:ike. The Kaslo, Lardo & Duncan Kiver road, after touching Upper
Kootenay Lake follows the sarao route
to Trout Luke. The country and climate is such that work on these roads
ni'Od not be stopped on account of winter, and the roads will bo pushed right
along until completed. Tho piling for
the K. L _.. D. nad across the head
of the Duncan whence it emerges from
Upper Kootenay Lake, is all driven,
and the bridge brew are at work. The
piling is all driven for large and com-
iiinilius wharfs on the lake front for,
both railroads.
"The Duncan River, which for two
weeks wns so low that boats could not
get up t,has risen,and now the steamer Marion is making regular trips from
Knslo to Duncan City. Mr. Roy, the
Dominion Government Engineer, has
visited the Duncan river lately and
recommended an appropriation he allowed fur this year of three thousand
d'llllnrs, fo- the purpose of improving
the navigation of the river. This is
the fourth appropriation for thu same
purpose andshonld be made annually until the river is in a perfect condition for
navigating.
"The Bannookbum mine of the Ban-
nookbum group, above Duncan City,
is looking extremely well This is
considered very valuable property, and
was sold last winter to the present
owners, the Bannookbum Mining
Company, for $20,000. Tho Lodo Star
Mining Compnay, whose property is
close to the Bannnckbnrn, are doing a
great deal of deal of development work
and are busily engaged nt present putting in timbor nnd supplies for tho
winter."
Mr. Buchanan now has, iu addition
to his mills at Knslo, a new saw mill
in Duncan City. He took quite a novel
and picturesque procedure to got it
there. The whole mill, machinery,
frames, pulleys, wheels, gig back, etc.,
was loaded on a big barge at Kaslo
nud by steamor towed from there to
the mouth of the Duncan river. From
the mourn uj the river Mr. Buchauan
towed i11,. barge up the river by hand.
He used two lines of about 2(100 feet
length, One lJ_-inoh ana one 1-inch
thick. Inch by inch, foot by foot, tho
heavy  barge  was hauled up the swift
current of the river. II rook sixteen
men and two weeks of lime to land the
mill at Duncan City. It is now in operation with a capacity of 20,000 feet
per day,
Mr. Buobanan in .peaking respecting the Bight-Hour law said that he
noticed thnt Mr. Suiith-CurtiBS had
staled that the Memorial prepared hy
tha committee of the Boards of Trade
to the Provincial Government regarding the Eight-Hour law, did not represent the true feeling or spirit of the
Boards of Trade in meeting assembled,
but rather was the personal expression
of the members of the committee.
That is entirely wrong. The Eight-
Hour law was very fully discussed at
that meeting, in fact more than any
thing else, nnd although the committee
was appointed on the last night of tho
meeting, it was not done hurriedly or
in haste. As a member of that meeting, I know thnt the sentiment of the
Boards of was just exactly that ex-
pri sserl by the Memorial, and that it
was understood by everyone when
tho committee was appointed,that such
a memorial would emanate from its
members. If any other throe members
of the Boards had heen appointed, the
result would have been just the same.
It is folly to speak any other way for
tho sentiment of lhe Boards was clearly expressed in that Memorial without
a dissenting voice. If any opposition
ro such n Memorial hnd existed
among any of the members it would
have been known, for everything em ���
bodied in it was fully discussed beforehand. Everyono present knew the attitude of the gentlemen appointed and
tbe fact that they were appointed
shows that the feelings of the Boards
was harmony with tbem."
THE CLIMAX  REACHED.
Chicago. Ill , Sept. 18.���The difficulties between the labor unions and the
committee on arrangements of the
Chicago Fall Festival, reached a climax today when instructions were issued from Festival headquarters suspending all propartious for the celebration.
NOT A CANDIDATE.
Detroit, Mich., Sept. 18���Geu. R.
A. Alger today gave out a letter in
which he announced his withdrawal
from the candidacy for United States
Senator. His reason for this determi
nation, he says, is personal and of a
business nature.
KRITISH  COLUMBIA'S OPPORTUNITY.
The British Columbia Review, of
Loudon, Eng., iu its issue of Sept.
2nd, says in a leading article reviewing the Transvaal situation: "If the
investor loses confidence in South
Africa, he will,we think, turn to.Australia or Canada. The possibilities of
British Columbia are recognized -if
they are not fully understood. Canada
is beyond the realm of strife; the capital invested therein continues to develop a wonderful country, whioh. in
ooorae of time, will return a hundred
fold probably for every dollar invested.
These are facts the investor considers
when his capital is menaced or depreciated by a nation whose ignorance and
dnpicitv are their chief political weapons. War in the Transvaal, should it
unfortunately result, must be a decided gain to Anglo-Canadian enterprise." The B. C. Review never fails
to put In a good word for B.C , and it
is to be hoped that its present predio
tions may come true, war or no war.
EARTHQUAKE AT SKAGWAY.
Victoria, B. G, Sept. 18.- The
steamer Alpha, which completed a
quick trip from the north last evening,
lnings news of another earthquake at
Skagway. It was on the 10th of Sop
tember and then were several distinot
shocks. Tho disturbance wns felt as far
inland as the Atlin district, and there
were several distinct shocks.

Jones, manager of the Great Western
Mining Company, was arrested on his
way up tbe Yukon and returned to

amount involved.
HEAVY LIABILITIES.

THE PRESIDENT HAED OF HEARING.
The Rightest and the Leftest Having a Fierce Time.
The Prisoners Well Cared for.���Oost Not
to Exceed 300,000 Francs.
Pans, Sept. 18.���The Senare met a
a High Oourt of Justice today at 2 p.
in. for the purpose ot trying 22 politicians, including M. Deroulede, Maroill
Haebens, Baron de Vaux and Jules
Guerin.on charge of conspiring against
tbe Government. Procurator General
Barnard read the long indictment,
which lasted from 2:25 p. in. till 3:40
p m. when tho Senate entered into secret session to discuss the indictment
and determine the questions relating
to the preliminary inquiry,whioh is to
be ordered. Senate will probably reassemble nbout 6 p. in. and announce
its decisions. It will then adjourn
until tho conclusion of the inqnirv,
perhaps a month hence.
Pans, Sept. 18.���The pubic and press
galleries were crowded by t :45 p. in
and the Senator's places were filled u
few minutes before 2 p. m. Then the
roll of the drum was heard in the distance anounoing that President Fal-
lierereB, accompanied by the Senatorial officers, was approaching. M. Falli-
ereres entered, and bowing to the two
officers, who. naked sword in hand,
stood on tho right of the Chamber,
had escorted him through the corridors
of the palace to the Chamber, proceeded to the pi .tform took his seat behind
the table in the center of the platform.
Tho President presented a dignified
figure. He has a fine head, _ grizzly
beard and wbb attired in evening
dress; behind hira were grouped ushers and other officers of tbe Senate in
evening dress, wenring their silver
chains of office. On the table at the
President's right hand was a big brass
baud bell, which, however, he had no
occasion to use todny. A sharp tapping
of his little mallet snsfficiiug to restore
silence when laughter which greeted
somo passages of M. Bernard's indictment grew too boisterous. Not one of
the accused was present or in the nalace
today bur nine cells hnve been fitted
up for them iu the library. They are
very comfortably furnished. Tho floor
is covered with linoleum and the wal's
are hung with greenish cloth. The
furniture consists of an iron bedstead,
an easy chair, a marble topped toilet
rable, a cuspidor and a rug. Thus the
prisoners will have littlo to complain
of uud may congratulate themselves
that times have changed since the
Girondens were confined in the palace
of the Senate by Robespierre during
tbe Reign of Terror and languished in
dungeons. President Fallioreres opened
the proceedings amid general silence,
by reading the decree of President of
the Repoblic, constituting the Sennte
on the report of tho Minister of Justice
into a High Court to try the charge
against the aoousod of making an attempt on tbe security of the state. M.
Fnlliertres then declared the Senate
opened and the clerk called the roll nf
the Senators who answered with the
word "present. " There was momen
tary exoitemont when M. Falliereres
concluded reading the President's despatch. A Rightist Senator, M. L. (
Marsolle, began to speak and M. Faln-
oreres said sharply: "I cannot hear
you." La Marsolle insisted and M.
Falliereres again said : "I cannot hoar
you," aud the Leftists shouted: "Order, order." A Rightist Senator, Mi
Provost de Lannay, thereupou cried,
pointing to the Leftists, "There aro
our judges. " At this there was a general shout of "Oh!" and "silence,"'
from the Leftists and galleries. M.
Falliereres. however, with a rnpping
of his mallet quickly restired order.
The leading absentees   when  the  roll
wns called, were M.Constans, Schenrer-
Kestner and Mercier.
Then, tho door through which M.
Falliereres entered, wns again opened
wide, and three tall figures, in long
soarlet robes, appeared ou tbe threshold
and with stately mien, marching in
the hall and ascending the steps of the
plntform. took their places on the right
hand of the Presidcnr. The first was
M. Bernard, the Procurator General,
and the others were substitutes. M.
Bernard immediately began to review
the indictment in a monotonous voice.
The indictment commenced by reciting the facts of the arrest of M. Deroulede and Mariol-Habert, and said the
inquiry had shown the existence of
a conspiracy to change the form of
government, to which the disorders of
last Febiuary, it was added, were due,
nnd in which M. Deroulede, Mariol-
Habert and some members of the
League of Patriots, M. Gnerin, aud
some other members of the Anti-Sem
itio yotrtn, M. Boufet, Godefroi, and
Shevilly and members of the Royalist
party claimed has joined the insurrection organization where are aioi'iated
Nationalists, Royalists and Imperialists Lenguo aud theauti-Semetie youth
has, as a mission, tbe propaganda in
the provinces of the revolutionary
movement. M. Du Bnc, it was further
charged, is the link between the uu ti
Semite and Patriot leagues.
Tne indictment then gave a few par
ticulars of the provincial organization.
Referring to the Royalists' League, it
was worthy of attention, though the
idea of a monarchic restoration appeared inconceivable, it had played a pre
ponderant role in the recent events. Its
leader being tho Duke of Orleans
himself and its managers his accredited representntivs. All the leagues it
was asserted seek to, chango the form
of government by street risings. A
letter from the Duke of Orleans to his
representative, M. Buffet, written from
Marienbad, July, 1896', instructing him
to commence a Royalist organization
was read, aud then other secrots in
which it stipulated that the sum to be
spent was not to exceed 800,000 francs.
The mention of this figure evoked
laughter from the Senators; "800,000
francs would be a heap, was a remark
heard from the gallery. M. Falliereres
tapped for silence and M. Bernard
continued to review the Royalist agi
tatiou at the end of 181)11, showing that
the' buffet, Oot 24, nnd Oct. 20 telegraphed in code to the Duko of Orleans,
who was in Bohemia, to como tn lhe
frontier Oct. 25, that being 'ho date of
the anti-Somite and Royalist disturb
anco on the Pluce de la Concord.
Ou Dec. 12 there was further dis
order, a mob marching to the Cherohe
Midi Prison, crying, "Vive le Due
D'Orleans." The police stopped tbe
mob, but M. Chevilly wired to the
Duke of Orleans: "Success destime
2,000 demonstrations; police stopped
them, but will recommen e. "
This   Royalist   outing,    it   appears,
aronsod the   jealousy of   other  parties
aud M. Buffet wired to  tho   Duke  of
Orlenns that he feared   the   Bonupart
ists were also contemplating action.
Tho indictment proceeded with recapitulation of the Royalists demon
strations and declared the Royalists
led and paid a mob tn insult. President
Lonbet on the day of his election. Let

villy, showed that the funds were be
coming exhausted by February, IHDI),
and promises of money, mostly frnm

The culminatory point of tho Royalist conspiracy was reaohed Februnry 2'

on Elysee Palace. Evaiything, it seem-1
������, was ptepared to cany out the Hoy- j

leans, who   was   waiting   at   Brussels ]

Instead a telegram from M. Buffet,
saying: "Useless to oon

of Orleans then wanted to go farther
away, and the fact that the Roynlisls
wished to carry out their conspiracy it
possible was   shown   in   a   telegram
which M. Buffet sent him begging him
to remain, as "the Government did
not know what to do with M. Deroulede."
At the conclusion of the reading of
the indietiiienr, M. Bernard and his
colleagues left the Senato and M. Falliereres ordered Senators to sit behind
closed doors.
The Senate at 7 p. m. was still deliberating. It was then understood the
Senators had agreed to grant the application that the prisoners be represented before the parliamentary enquiry
by counsel. This was a poiut the prisoners considered a most important one
to them. The Senators then discussed
whether they were competent to sit us
a High Court and try the case.

London, Sept. 18.���The second edition of the Timos contains a despatch
fiom Johannesburg whioh says:
"There is, I am informed, some
early coup in contemplation, Quantities of impressed forces forwarded in
the direction ot the Natal border indicate some move on tho part of the
troops in that quarter. The Government is buying horses freely today."
Pretoria, Sept. 18.���Tho reply of
the Government of the South African
republio to the latest despatch dated
Sept. 12, of the British Secretary of
State for the Colonies, Mr. Jos. Chamberlain, after acknowledging tho receipt of the British note, proceeds in
part as follows:
"The Government deeply regrets the
withdrawal, as the Government understands it, of the invitation contained
in the British despatch of August
28rd, and the substitution in the place
thereof of au eutirely new proposnl.
The proposals now fallen through, contained in the Transvaal despatches of
August 19 and August 21, were elicited
from this Government by suggestions
made by the British diplomatic agent
in Pretoria, which this Governmeut
acted upou in good faith, and after
specially ascertaining whether they
would be likely ro prove acceptable to
the British Government bad by no
means au intention to raise again
ueedlessly the question of political status, but acted with the sole object of
endeavoring, by the aid of tho local
British agent, to put an eud to the
strained condition of affairs. This
was done in the shape of a proposal
which this Government seems loth as
regards its spirit and form, to bo so
worded as, relying upon intimations to
this Government wonld satisfy Her
Majesty's  Government.
"As regards the joint commission,
the Transvaal acceptance of the invitation thereunto given by Her Majesty's
Government, and cannot uudorstand
why such commission should now bn
deemed unnecessary and why it should
now, without -111011 Inquiry, be thought
possible to declare this Inw inadequate.
"Furthei, there must be a misapprehension,  if   it   he   assumed   thut tbis
Government was prepared to lay proposals for a five years' franchise and a
quarter representation of the now population befoio the Vnlkraad for unconditional acceptance nn to the language.
This Government never made auy
offers such as is referred to, considering, as it did, such a nienscro both unnecessary   aud undesirable.
'This Government ardently desires
nnd gladly accepts arbitration, as its
firm intention is tondheie to the terms
of the Londou convention of 1884."
Tho despatch concludes by trusting
that tho British Government on reconsideration may not deem it lit to make
more genorous or new proposals for a
joint commission of enquiry us previously explained by tbe Secretary of
State for the Colonies to tho Imperial
Parliament,
The reply concludes:
"If Her Majesty's Government is
willing,and feels able to make this decision a joint commission would pat
1111 end lo the present tension. Rnce
hatred would decrease anil die out, and
the prosperity and welfare of tho
South African Kepublie and the whole
of South Africa will bo developed and
furthered and fraternization between
the diTorunt nationalities will increase. ''
A FOUR STORY BUILDING
An Importing Structure of Montreal Collapsed.���Very Great ��_oitmoiit
Manifested.
Montreal, Qua, Sept. 18.���At
o'clock this evening the southeast
corner of Queen Theutre building, 111
which was located \V. H. Scroggie's
big retail drygoods store fell in. Ten
minutes later when the congregation of
Christ's Church cathedral adjoining
would have been dismissed there might
have been loss of life. The building
fell gradually and warning was given
the few people on tbe street at the
time, so that no one was injured. The
building was an imposiug ono occupying a whole fronting on St. Catherine
street between University and Victoria
streets, and was four stories in height.
On an upper floor adjoining the Scrog-
gie establishment is situated the
Queen's Theatre. The building is un
old fashioned one, and this spring tho
Scroggie firm, which started business
in the corner store and in the expansion of business took in four stores adjoining up to the theatre entrance, put
iu a modern front and remodelled their
end of the building. The repairs had
only been completed a short time.
This afternoon at five, rho watchman
employed iu the building heard ominous sounds und immediately notified
the agent of the Oglvie estate, which
owns the building. When he arrived
there was no sign of anything beiug
wrong and the sounds had ceased. It
was not until 8 o'clock when they began once more. People passing along
the street heard one or two dull reports and then a shower of plate glass
fell out on the sidewalk. Everybody in
Ihe vicinity got ont of the way, and as
they did so the wall fronting on St.
Catherine street slowly toppled over
into the street, falling with a deafening crash. Tho wall on the University
street side also fell. Both St. Catherine
and University streets wero olocked
by the debris, while a gnst of dust,
through which figures could be seen
rushing to places of safety and the
sputtering of broken ole.tric light
wires added to tho excitement of the
moment. The fire brigade were called
ont but their services were not required. The break extended the width
of two stores from the corner as far
back as the entrance to the theatre,
which itself was not damaged.
Wright's "What Happened to Jones"
company was to onen an engagement
in the honse tomorrow evening, which
must of   necessity   be canoellod.
The loss is placed nt $25,000 on the
building and |80,000 on the Scroggie
stock.

THK AMI-ALIEN ACT.
We have no reason to doubt that Mr
Robeit I).Skinner, un Alderman of the
Ciry of Vancouver, is "an observant
man and without politioal preju'lice "
This is a claim be makes in his own behalf, and judging from such reputation as has extended as far as Nelson
it is not without reason. As an observant .nan he took note of the conditions that exist in the Atlin country,
and as a nmn without political prejudice he can speak of them with a judg
luent free from bias. He is just down
from Atlin, und having noticed Mr.
Cotton's commendation of the Placer
Mining Act, as contained in a recent
Rossland interview, be writes the
News-Advertiser to say that Mr. Dot-
ton's opinions are not borne out by
the facts, and that the Act has boen
distinctly injurious���injurious not only to Atlin itself, but to the whole
country. Mr. Skinner has beeu on the
spot to note the effects of it, and not
being a politician can have no motive
to misrepresent them. Mr. Cotton has
no personal knowledge of the conditions
to which it has given rise, and being a
Minister feels himself under obligation
to represent them in the rosiest, of
lights. As the Alderman is as capable of a judgment as the Minister,
men who aro governed more by reason
than feeling will have no hesitation in
ncoepting the opinion of the disinterested and unprejudiced man in preference to that of  the other.
Tho Act has done harm. It scarcely
needed a Vancouver business man to
visit Atlin to assure us of this fact. So
far as it was intended to keep the
gold of that country in Canada it has
been to a large extent successful, for
nearly all of it is in rhe ground yet
and likely to remain tbere. But
that is not what the country wants.
Gold in the Atliu gravels is of no value
to anyone; it is of valuo only when
washed out and put into circulation,
A country may be rich in resources,
but if they are not developed rhe
country will never be any better off
because of them. If we have resources
let us develop them ; that is the way
to make a country rich. It is development we want, and it is development
the Act is doing so much to discourage. If tho Act had not prevented,Mr.
Skinner has no doubt there would have
been _;"��,(jOO people in the Atliu district
at the present time. That would mean
large development. It would mean the
manufacture and sale of a large quantity of supplies; it would mean a
large trade of which every section of
the country, and every class of the
population, would experience the benefit. Instead of ,5,000 tbere are 5,01)0.
and a volume of business that ought to
be represented by five is measured by
the figure   one.
There may be politic) iu Ihis, but it
is not business. Il is not even politics, for no people can be. so hopelessly
stupid as to be imposed upon by il for
any length of time.    Their rein-on will
toll them  the whole thing is wrong,
and they will roject the men who advised it. Mr. Bklnnei addressed his
views lo The Nows-Advoitiser. and be
iug Mr. Cotton's paper, Tho News-
Advertiser conceives itself under the
neojBsitj of replying to it. The only
point it can advance In rejoinder is to
say that if these 211.000 additional
bad gone into the Atlin the result
would have been "an era of wild speculation, largely based ou unreal values,
followed by a huge exodus of bitterly
disappointed men." This is the cheap
stuff that is made lo serve as n defence
of the Act to exclude aliens and retard
tho development of the Atlin placers.
If sound in the case of Atlin, why not
nlso sound for the Klondike? Under n
different policy the Yukon is prospering at an enormous rato, and this year
the Government at Ottawa will realise
over a million of dollars in revenue
from il. In addition to this, the
whole country experiences some benefit
from the development that is iu prog
less. California and Australia and
South Africa were not made rich by
building a wull around their golillields
and admitting but a soled few. Ami
it is the duty of a Government and
Legislature to   interfere   to prevent
speculation and unreal values, they
w-ill find it necessary lo legislate lor

When il came to sentencing some
boys for petty thieving, the Holico
Magistrate of Vancouver was at a loss
what to do. His good judgment and
humanity revolted at the idea of sending them to  the penitentiary al  Now
Westminster, while little good would
bo served by handing Iheni over to the
"so-called reformatory at Victoria. "
We imagine there aro Police Magistrates iu tho Piovince outside of Vancouver who aro often puzzled to know
what is best to do with juvenile
Offenders who are not depraved enough
to ho giveu up as hopeless. And it is
not oreditable to our rulers and governors that no provision is made for their
proper disposition. There should be no
such thing as a "so-called reformatory" | and if Ministers would think a
little less of repudiation and of playing
for a class vote by legislating against
aliens and set! iug capital and labor at
loggerheads, and a little more of measures necessary for the publio welfare,
we should have a reformatory or other
place of confinement suitable for
offenders of tlie kind that would.deserve something better thau this extremely equivocal designation.
Our Greenwood namesake says:
"The Miner can predict with certainty
that the Government will be defeated
at the opening of the House. What
will happen then let others say who
know." The general public will experience so much satisfaction in anticipating the defeat of the Government that many of them will uot care
to trouble their heads about what is to
follow. There is oue immense satisfaction iu the prospect in tbe knowledge that it will bo impossible to form
a worse one.

PLANS FOR BLOCKS
p, BUMS  &  00.   WILL   HAVt; A
HANDSOME FKONT.
It Will be the finest on the Ooast North
of San Fiamsoo.���llio New
Mad : en Block.
Wlioti the Monk now being ureot <l
for P. Burns & Co., on Baker street
is completed it will hnve tbn hnndsom-
,sl fnnit of nnv plnco of business on
tho Pneiflo Coast north of Sun Francisco. Jinny peoplo who have seen tbo
pinna and familiar with tbo principal
buildings in tbn oities inoluded in thnt
big swoop have agreed, that suoh is
tlm oiiso Mr. Arthur Hodgins, the nr-
ohiteot, bus dlsplnyed great artistle
tiitsn in prepparing the plans and
l\lr. Burns bus shown himself anxious
ti] give Nolson a very fine struotnre in
(incepting tbom. A Minor representative wus shown a sketoh of tbe front
elevation giving all the details of the
dooorativo work. The block will have
n frontage of 01 foot occupied by two
stores and nn entrance between them
lending to the offices upstairs! Over
this entrance will bo a terra cotta urch
nad panel. This work will be beautiful in tbo extreme, with it bull's head
standing out prominently ns emblematic nl the company's business and Bur-
rounded by oherobs nud scroll work of
���unions designs. There will be nimble
pilasters with a rough rook faoe in various places on the front of thn first
story. Over tbu plate gln^s windows
will bo prism transoms to give light to
the deep stores behind. As the pilas.
tors continue up the second story tbey
will be of white pressed brick The
windows will be spacious aud will be
sot iu panels with while marble sills
aud bonds and red brick punel_ and
ni'chos with terra cotta spandrils,
Above them, will be panels of white
terra cotta set in rcM brick. A white
brick and terra cotta belt course will
rnn along the whole front of the building. Then comes the cornice of terra
cotta, the whole surmounted by a balustrade of white term cotta finials.
The blend:ngs of oolors h.s boon care-
felly considered. Tho building will
run back 100 feel_nud an elevator in
the rear to raise meat, to tbe cold storage rooms will extend buck thirteen
feet in the southeast corner. Tho r-om-
biuiy's store will be forty feet deep aud
the oiHces will be above it. The portion in the roar of this store will be
divided into throe floors in which the
cnld slorage system will be operatod,
the machinery for which will be in the
basement. This will supply room for
a very elaborate plant which will be
used by both the Burns Oo. nnd the
Parsons Produce Oo. Tho other half
cf the building will be occupied with
the store which hus been leased to the
Wallace-Miller Oo. Ltd., and offices
above. The store will be one hundred
feot  deep and when filled   by the very
expensive stook of the Wallace-Miller
Company will be one of the cost in the
Province. The basement below it will
bo oooupied by the Parsons Produce
Company!
The plans for tlio Madden block at
tho comer of finkui and Wnrd streets
are complete and yesterday the demolition of the old premises of Wallace and
Miller wns commenced to make room
for it. The block will have a frontline
"f Sill feet on Bak��r street and 120 on
Ward. Thero will three stores on the
ground floor, one nt tbo corner, 05x26,
nnd two facing Wnrd Btreet, -Ox.ti feet
eaoh, The upper s'ory will be divided
into 15 offices with a general entrance
on Ward street. The chief characteristic of tho building will bo a high
tower that will no up from the corner.
It will be covered with galvanized
iron. The building will be brick with
ornamental brick belt courses. The
orliees and stores will be splendidly
fitted up and when the block is completed it will be a decided addition tu
tho architecture of the city besides
Inking the place of a rnmshnkle building lhat bordered an unsightly hole.
Mr. Hodgins also has the plans prepared for the ollice building of the
Loudon and B. O. Goldfields, which
will be erected on Bilker Htreet, a few
lot west of Kooten-y. The building
Will 50x52. There will be a general
Offioe, engineer's, malinger's and accountant's offices on the ground floor,
and a board room, drafting room and
two additional offices up stairs. The
building will be a frame one, .will
have a handsome front and will be
tastefully fitted up in the interior.
Tho example of tho London and B. O.
Qoldelds would be a good one for other
mining companies here to follow7.
Mr. Hodgins is thinking of putting
up n block for himself on his properly
at the corner of Baker au 1 Kootenay
Htreots, but he has been so bnsy with
other blocks that he hns not had time
to finally settle the matter. If he
builds hia blook will be 50x50 with
two stores on the ground floor and a
ball above.
of Cottonwood Oreek behind tho smelter. The addition will be laid out in
lots, and recreation grounds will be
provided for. Ii will be remembered
that when Mr L, A. Hamilton, Land
Ooniiiiii.hii.nei-nf the C. P. K.. visited
Nelson some weeks ago ho expressed to
tho Minor the willingness of the oompany to trade a piece of land for recreation grounds in tints reserve for the
present reoreation grounds, the deed
for which the company has been withholding from thu City for a long time.
Tho oitizens, however, will not see it
that way, and the matter slid limits
lire. The 0. P. R. is under a moral,
bnt peihups not leenl, obligation to
the City to hand over the property, but
now thnt it has became more valuable
than it anticipated it isreluotnni to do
so. The innial side of the matter does
not appeal to it very strongly, One of
tho officials has suited that, tho present
recreation grounds will bo needed by
the company if Nelson is made the
railway center for Southern British
Columbia. Perhaps if the company
woull agree in something more binding, however, thnu a mere promise, to
use tho grounds for a depot, round
houses, repair shops, nnd uot for putting it on the mnrket in building lots,
the exchange might be elfeoted.

DARING  ROBBER'S;   AT OHESAW.
Ohesaw, Bept 15.���Last night Mr.
Hughes, a prominent real estate dealer
from Phoenix, 13. C., was held up by
two highwaymen on the outskirts of
Ohesaw. Mr. Hughes arrived in Ohesaw about 4 o'clock p. m., and meeting numerous friends proceeded in the
usual western style style to celebrate
The celebration wns kept in town until
nfter 12 o'clock, when some of his
friends undertook lo show him "across
the creel..''
As near as can be learned,ho left the
rest of the crowd, and started for his
hotel. When he reached the bridge he
was h.dd up by two men, wbo relieved
him of .$-15 in cash and a gold watch
and chain, and his hat. There is ni.
clue to the robbers, although there are
several suspicious characters around
town Ohesaw police arc investigating, nnd it is hoped the guilty parties
will be caught nud punished.
WILL 00 TO GREENWOOD.
It having been reported throughout
the country in the press thnt the railway would not be be built into Greenwood this winter, nnd thnt tbo terminus would remain at Columbia for a
long time to come, tbe editor of the

HE LUCKS THE HOSPITAL.
Nolson, B. 0., Sept. 14th, 181)9.
Mr. Editor:
Would you kindly allow me space in
your paper to publicly express my
thanks and appreciation for the kindness and care I reoeived while a patient in the Kootenny Lake General hospital. My six weeks' stay thero enables mc to give yon a correct account
nf tbe manner of treatment and I must
say it is of the best. The resident physician. Dr. Rose, is an attentive and
capable physician whose watchful earn
and geniality revives many a weary
patient. The three Indies, Misses
Urease, DesBrisay and MoKeen, are
trained and experienced nurses whose
whole souls are devoted to Iheir noble
work.
In conchisi.m I may add tbat for
comfort nnd cleanliness in every detail
and for efficiency in all officials aid
attendants the Kootenny Lnke Hospital
compares with tbe best in Oamtda.

exist in regard to recruiting natives
and nlso in the treatment of native

AXNABLE'S   COLUMN.
Windermere, B. V., Sept. 16.��� The
Hall Mines will probably /work the
Rlaek Prince copper claim, situated on
Boulder Oreek, all winter.
It is understood that a preliminary
survey has been run up Hammil Creek
from Argenta, and that the grade was
only 1 per cent.
The proposed railroad starting at tlie
(Jiaw's Nest I'ass at or nbout Wardner,
the probable snieltei point for East
Kootenay, thence np tlie east side of
the Kootenay river crossing near the
Skookumohnok, and along the west
side of the Columbia lakes np tbe Toby
valley and down Hr.miiiil Creek and
connect with tho Arrowhead branoh
would undoubtedly open the greatest
mineral bearing country in (he northwest. It would tap the Fort Steele,
Skookumohnok, Windermere, Lardo-
Duncan and Trout Lake mining dis-
tiicts and would fcive railroad connection from the Crow's Nest Pass to
Bevelstoke, thereby connecting the
two C, P. R. lines.
J. R. McLeod and partners bave uncovered an immense showing of high
grade ore on the White Cat group on
Boulder Creek. This property was located during the season of 1898 by Mr.
McLeod. A force of men are now beiug worked under the personal direction of J. R. MoLeod.
A largo crowd of prospectors came
over the trail from the Lardo-Duncan
aud Trout Lake country during the
past week via Hammil and Toby
creeks.
There is every reason to believe that
there will be an exceptionally late fall
this year, and that there is a good two
months prospecting to be had yet. Tbn
weather is warmer now than at any
time during the summer.
The Jupiter Star haR n uico showing
of gray copper ore situated on Boulder
Creek near the Delos mine.
The Windermere mining district
otters more inducements to the prospector and capitalist than any other
mining camp in the northwest.
The Windermere Copper Mines Limited are working a force of men on
their Copper Creek properties. The
development work is under the direction of _\ J. Ryan of West Kootonay.
The Swansea will probably start
shipping in the very near future.
Fred West has uncovered a nice
showing of high grade oro on the Custer group, situated nn Horse Thief
Creok immediately opposite Montezuma group.
John Bnrman is developing ihe
Christina group on Boulder Creok.

The Jupiter claim at Erie has been

for the sum of three thousand dollars
