Unpardonable Crime of Two
New York Sharps
DID NOT PAY FOR ADS.
They Let Contracts, Eeceived the Money j
With Whxh to Pay Them, and
Kept it Theui8elve3.
New York, Fob. 28.���Tho Grand
Jury tonight indioted Samuel Philips
and George. Hastings, of the advertising firm id George Hnstings & Co., ou
the charge of obtaining advertising
contracts under false pretences. The
amount involved is said to he more
than $-300,000 and the victims uumlier
hundreds aud are in all parts of this
country and Canada. Recorder Goff
lined a bench warrant today for the
arrest of the two men. Phillips
was taken into custody, but it was
learued that Hastings is iu Europe
and had been seen last at Monte Carlo.
Assistant District Attorney Davis tonight told why the men had beeu indicted. He said George Hastings wus
in 1897, a reputable citizen with an
excellent record aud credit with local merchants. In the fall of thnt
year he made a contract with the
French firm which manufactured "Vin
Mariani," a proprietory medicine,
to handle their American contracts for
advertising purposes. By this contrite!
with the Vin Mariani Company, the
Arm referred all solicitors for advertising contracts to Hastings & Company. Taking advantage of his already wo" cstailib.*. d .fcpu'at'iOi., be
represented that he had to wait from
three to six months for his money
from the French house, and in this
way almost overy paper in the United
States and Canada gave him credit for
from three to six months. The lirst
lot of contracts were paid for promptly
as thoy fell due and a secoud lot wen
undertaken readily by the papers and
journals, and others, learning of tin
oredit of Geo . Hastings & (Ho., also
agreed to print the medicine advertisement. On December 17, of lust
year, Hastings sailed for Europe. The
contracts began to fall due after his
departure. The creditors communieat
ed with the French firm and tli6.y reported having paid Hastings in full
for all tlie advertising. Philipps was
then sought and he claimed to have
been victimized himself. Mr. Davis
says, however, that Philips confided
in L. H. Goldsoll, a diamond merchant of this city, that he was in all
of Hastings' secrets, aud had shared
the profits. Mr. Goldsoll so testified
bofore the Grand Jury and the indiit-
ments  were the result.
According to Assistant District Attorney Davis, Hastings aud Phili] s
did not limit their operations to the
patent medicine mentioned. They
formed a diamond company and handled what were called "Barrios" diamonds. Hastings, Philips, aud two
young women, wore the partners
They leased a large Broadway store
and advertised a stone which was war
ranted to be the equal in ovory respeoi
of the best African diam ond. The
New York papers printed the advertisements of this concern by the page
and overy paper in tlie Uuited States
also took contracts. At first the Htones
were offered for a dollar each. Tho
first crop of customers was vory large
and money was poured into the "Diamond Company" by the bushel. The
next offer was "Your choice for 60
cents," aud after the investors began
to grow scarcer the "diamonds'
were sold for 2b oents each, Even nt
this figure the profits were largo.
The contracts for the "'diamond''
atlTertiseuieiits were let almost simultaneously with those foi the patotil
medicine and began to fall due at the
same time, with the same result
thnt creditors nre still sacking their
money.
AFTER ALBI.
Italian Murderer BoUeve I to Have
Been in Nelson.
Ohief of Provincial Police Bullock-
WebBter, and Chief of City Polico Mo-
Kinnoii have received letters from
the polico authorities in Spokano, en-
elosing photographs of Albi, the Italian who shot a man iu the back recently in Spokane, It ii not easy tor
�� man to tn��y (or thi  polls*  nowa
days but the murderer in this case lias
and has eludotl al! the efforts made to
catch him Chief McKimioii is of
the opinion that the man was here but
no li-aco of him oan be found. The letter from the Sopkatn* police states that
Albi probably escaped while dressed
in women's clothes and that ho was
fleeing through Cana.la to Italy.
Albi is well known by a great many
people in Nelson as lie has linen engaged in railway work near here and
has often visited the city.
Concerning the efforts being made (o
capture him the Spokane Spokesman-
Review says:
A multitude of Albi stories which
were in circulation yesterday made it
look as if some of them had been purposely set afloat with the viovv"of deceiving the officers While Albi him
self made his escape.
One story was that tho murderer is
now in British Columbia across tho
line. It was given color by the fact
that his brother, John Albi, is a railway contractor near Greenwood, nnd
as there aro a number of Italians in
that part of the country, it would uot
be a difficult matter for him to stay
in hiding for a considerable time.
Last evening two little newsboys,
big eyed with excitement, rushed into
the police station with the announcement that they had seen Albi on
Washington street. They declared that
he drew a gun at. them while buying a
paper, and after reading the headlines
of it, announced that he was Albi for
whom the police wero looking. From
the description furnished by the boys,
the man was evidently an Italian, but
tho police, while believing tho boys,
were inclined to think that the play
was a deliberate move to draw attention from the real plans of the fugitive.
Early yesterday morning a telephone
message announced Albi hud been
seen in the southeast part ot the town
Captain Coverly with a force of officers rode out to the neighborhood in
the patrol wagon, but a careful search
showed no sign of the murderer, and
the whole thing was evidently a hoax.
It is developing that the assassin has
a number of friends ov.ir the country,
not ouly among the Italians, but
among tl.oso of other nationalities ns
well, aud ou that account he may root iie considerable aid in making his
effort, to get out of the country. James
Albi, his brother, still professes complete ignorance <if tho fugitive's movements, aud declares that he does not
know where he can be.
The Tacoma papers say that a sharp
lookout is maintained there for
AIM iu case he should endeavor tn
ship in any of the vessel* "saving
there.

A Bulletin Yesterday Shows  That Theie
is Still Hope of His
Eecoverj.
New York, March 1.���Tlie relatives
and frieuds of Rudyard Kipling have
renewed hopes for his recovery. Although it was impossible to get either
Dr. Janeway, Dr. Dunham or Mr.
Doubleday, or any otbei persons from
the sick room, or in the confidence of
family or physicians, to talk, except
in the most non-committal manner, it
wns evident that the patient's condi-
tit u was not so serious as in the afternoon. The 11 o'clock bulletin was as
follows:
Mr. Kipling has, on the whole, not
gained during the day, though the
respiratory function has so far improved that Ihe U86 of oxygen is no
longer uecssaar.v. The influence of
the persisting inflammation in the
upper lobe is still manifest. The
statement that the respiratory function has improved is taken by tho
friends to be a most favorable indication.
Everybody about the hotel appeared
to brighten up after this bulletin had
beeu posted.
SCHOOL OF COOKERY,
A San Francisco Story of a Big Tripli
Alliance.
San Francisco, Feb. 21. ��� The Evening Post, in a sensational article polished this afternoon, gives What purports to be of some of the inside history of a triple alliance which has been
formed between Germany, France and
Russia for the purpose of impedinc
the expansion policy of the United
States, but more particularly to undermine the increasing power of the
United States in the Philippines,
It will be remembered that the
ICvcning Post wus the first paper ill
tho United States to tell of tho ad-
uinistration's purpose to seize tho island of Guam, giving ns it did, almost complete details of the seizure
und tlie reason therefor. The Post has
it other times published exclusively
news regarding the attitude of Gor-
tuaiiy iu the Philippines and the action of officials high in thai Government's service who were furnishing
Aguinaldo and his cohorts with arms
aud iimiTi nm ton.
The Post authority for today's startling disclosures is tlie same tliat gave
it most, of its previous stories of German intrigue, ami Ibe paper claims its
louroe to be absolutely reliable. According to the Post this niiin has giv
en lhe United States Government moie
important information concerning the
iffairs in the Pacific than any other
person, and that his information can
not be questioned, lie has just, returned from a sojourn iu Germany, where
lie had entered into the highest diplomatic circles.    He said to the Post:
"Germany is planning a great coup
d'etat that not only means the acquis
ition of Iho Philippine Islands by lhai
ioveruiiieut, but the defeat of the
American policy of territorial expansion.
"A German officer told me that
Russia mni Prance hail boon drawn
into a combine of the three powers,
ind that Russia is getting all the ships
possible into the Pacific without exacting attention ; that Germany is negotiating with Argentine and Chile for
the purchase   of   three   war vessels of
each Government,   to  bu   manned by
German officers and men. and will
rendezvous at   the   Marshall   Islands,
When the proper time comes, the combined fleets of Germany, Russia and
l*'raneo will lake possession of the
Philippines under the pretext of restoring order anl protecting the cili-
7,6118 and interests of those countries.
The only feature to operate against
this plan, it Is argued, will be the action of England, and to combat this
the attention of Great Britain will be
tnken no elsewhere. "

pain in his Bide, Dr. Lapponi found
some fever and ordered the patient to
remain in bed anil take a complete
rest. The physician has since visited

George Sand's well known work, "La

taken by Miss Oracle Hayes, who con-
llrni the good Impression she hail
made the night before. As Dedier, a
foolish boy with gleams of wil amid
his more thau rnslic stupidity, Mr.
R. Buchanan scored a great success.
As a clever, clean piece of comedy acting, it has probably never been surpassed in Nelson. Mr. E. Buchanan
made the best of the rather thankless

was good at times as Father liarlieaiil.
I hough his acting was rather uneven.

Loudon March 1.���The Rome correspondent of tho Daily News says:
"The sudden changes iu tho weather
brought on tbe Pope's bowel complaint,
from which he has never been entirely
free since last summer, whon it was
regarded as alarming. This is aggravated by a pain in the left side near
the spleen. Intrigues have already
begun with regard to a possible conclave and names of candidates are in
circulation. Thn indications aro that

would be divided distinctly into two
factions.  The lirst is   the simple religious faction supporting Padre Cotti, a
barefoot Carmelite monk from Genoa,
distinguished merely for learning and
piety, who would have really a good
chance for success. The second faction, which favors an extension of the
politioal power of lhe Pope, has three
candidates. Cardinal Bishop Luigi Or-
glia De Santo Stefaui, doau of the
Sacred College and Caniorlego of the
Holy Roman Ohuroh j Cardinal Bishop
Seraflne Vaiiuutilli. Bishop of Franc-
atii prefect of the congregation of bishops anil regulars; and Cardinal Priest

President has consented to take under the protection of the United Stales
army and navy oommanders at Man

and
Washington Feb. 28.���The feature
of the Court of Enquiry into General
Miles' beef charges today was an object lesson in canned meats, prepared
by tho court and served to the uon-
con:missioned men who testified at
yesterday's hearing. The court had
prepared ei-iht plates of beef, fresh beef,
canned beef lhat hail been lo Cuba and
oack and canned beef fresh from the
factory. Four plates were prepared

came from the can, the. fresh beef bo
ing boiled to make it resemble the
others. The enlisted men were ordered
to sample each and say which kind
they had in Cuba. It was a trying
ordeal for the men, most of them declaring that none of the plates looked
anything like what; thoy hail eaten in
Cuba. By repeated assurances that
there was campaign beef iu two of the
plates and after being urged lhat they
should at lenst choose "To the best of
their belief," the court succeeded in
getting au expression of opinion from
each of the men. An army surgeon.
Dr. Bowden, kept tally on thu guesses
of the men und changed the position
of the plates after each witness had
left the room. Tho result of this re
oorde was not made public however,
and will bo reserved till Dr. Bowden
testifies,probably somo time this week.
The most interesting witness of the
day was Lieutenant Ramsay, 0th Infantry, who had served as a commissary officer at Santiago and who characterized the "canned roast beef" as
an unpalatable and uninviting grade
of inferior meat, which ho would not
willingly   feed   to any man,   sick  or

"THE PIGS OF ENGLISH"
Germans Urged the Natives to Attack the
British Consulate. But tlie Latter
Had Too Much Sense.
London, March 1���The Daily Graphic publishes this morning, from a
Samoau correspondent, a story of recent events there, attributing the whole
trouble to the attempts of Germany to
upset tho Berlin treaty and to secure
supremaoy in the islands. Tho correspondent Bays: "The Germans, long
jealous of growing British influence,
seized the opportunity to break faith.
Malietoa's party would undoubtedly
have been victorious if supplied with
arms and ammunition as the Germans
supplied Mataafa. but tho British,
loyal to the treaty, refused to supply
either party. "
The correspondent then proceeds to
do* what lie   calls   tho  "German
libit to induce Mataafa's  force of 5,000
men to take the islands by storm."
He says on this point: "The Germans tried their utmost to make the
natives attack the British consulato
and the mission bouse where tho consul was giving refuge to British subjects. It wus only respect and fear
for the British Hag that held the natives buck. The Germans told the natives to kill al! 'he English missionaries end io sweep.'1." 'Pigs of English'
into the sea. The looting was terrible,
20 villages were utterly wrecked, tho
houses destroyed and the villagers left
destitute. "
A HARMLESS AFFAIR.

Royalist   Plot.
Paris,   Feb. 'IX. ���Nothing   seems  to
have   come   of   the   alleged   Royalist
plot.    Certainly such a   plot, if  thore
e one, can have hud no connection
with M. Paul De Ronledo's escape;
and in many quarters, it is believed
that the sudden activity of   the   Gov-
���ruuicnt, in the matter of domiciliary
searches, was a mere device of the
Premier t.i insure acceptance of the
Kt vision Hill.
Il is reported that M. yuesuay tie

ELECTRIC   LIGHTING.
After the expenditure of an additional twelve thousand dollars the city
will possess an electric light plant just
good enough to raise the doubt whether it would not be better to abandon it
and negotiate terms for the introduction of a service from Bonnington
Palls. That would seem to be the sum
and substance of the report of the expert who was employed to examine
the plant reoently foisted upou the city.
Ai this is the situation, wisdom
would suggest that we save our twelve
thousand dollars and go to Bonnington
Palls at once. We have the floshless
bones of a plant, which may servo as a
check to the rapacity of the outside
company and enable us to negotiate
reasonable terms. That is the best,
and in fact all, that we can extract
from the bargain with the late Mayor
and his associates, who hnve made a
pretty penny out of the citizens of Nelaon. The plant at present is inefficient, requiring the expenditure of the
sum named. Whon decently clothed
with flesh it will be capable of supplying 3,500 incandescent lights of lli-can-
dle power each. That is scarcely sufficient to supply present demands; it
will be entirely inadequate two years.
perhaps one year, hence. Whether
the Counoil shall decide to expend the
twelve thousiud dollars, aud make the
most possible out of the city plant,is n
question which, we aro quite sure,
may safely be left, to the judgment of

NOT THE END YET.
the fault is theirs and the  responsibility is theirs.
Parliament, however, is bound to
take cognizance of it. A great wrong
has beeu committed. Whether Mr,
Turner or Mr. Bemlin should he Premier of British Columbia is in itself a
small matter ; but that a Lieutenant-
Governor should undertake to make
Premiers for the people, in contempt
of the people's will, is a very grave
infringement of those political rights
and privileges wo are supposed to pes*
sess. The Turner Government wer
not defeated. Parties would have stood
19 to 19. It was not for the Lieutenant-Governor to decide that this meant
a dead-lock, nor was it any part of
his duty to break it if it were. Until the House met he is not supposed,
under the constitution, to know hi w
eh'ctious have gone. Wheu the returns
wen comlpeted it was not only seen
thut the parties were equally divided,
but it was known that at least two
members opposed to tho Government
could not hold their seats. But the
Governor did not wait until the returns wero completed. He baste/ied
to dismiss Mr. Turner and to call iu
other advisers. This is more than nny
Governor has ever done even when defeat was undoubted. It was a trick
to serve his party friends. But Governors are uot expected to engage in
political tricks; these are left to politicians, of whom there are plenty, un-
scroupulous enough for the worst.
Because a Governor has played such
an ignoble part, Parliament must say
whether his couduct is to go uurehuk-
ed.

From correspondence made for publication it is learned that Mr. Joseph
Martin is in favor of the Oorbin charter. He says: "It seems to me that
there is really no argument in favor
nf preventing any capitalist, American
or Canadian, from building railroads
iu Canada." Strange that.it should
not also seem to the hon. gentloman
that there is no argument in favor of
preventing Americans from mining in
British Columbia. If the one enterprise is to he welcomed, there is certainly uo reason why the other should
be excluded.

to Kootenay and Bast Yale what   Spo- j

this can he accomplished   if   tho merchants of Nelson are alive to their  interests. "    If a railwav cuts   into   divert tho trade   to   Spokane,    lhe nier-

CURRENT COMMENT.
Because Mr.   Turner's   motion   de
daring unconstitutional tho  act of the
Lieutenant-Governor in dismissing the
late Ministry   was voted   down   by   a
partisan majority in   the   Legislature,
Ministerial papers   are   expressing the
hope that the country   has   heurd   the
last of .the matter.    But   the  country,
it is safe to say, has not heard the last
of it, nor   would   it  be   well   for the
country if it had.   The act complained
of was a clear   violation   of   constitutional practice, and to tamely sit down
under it   would   moan   that tho country iB indifferent to political  outrages
of any kiud.    Perhaps   it,   is.   but  an
open confession   of   it   would   land us
next door to anarchy.    Wo   havo probably heard the last of it, so fur as  tho
Province   is   concerned,   excepting   it
may be that tho question will bo mado
au issue at tho next   general   election.
The   Logslaturo   ii through   with   it.
Tho Government     have   accepted   re-
gponiibihty for tbe act, and a   majority of the Legislature have approved of
it.    The acceptance was tardy, coming
at the very ond of tho   session   instead
of tho beginning, as    the   practice required ; but   ono of the distinguishing
characteristics  of the present Government is their uttor   contempt for Parliamentary or constitutional   practice.
Nothing   else   was   expected of  the
Legislature.    Tho   majority   owe   the
blessed satisfaction   of   being   able to
call themsolves   the Ministerial   party
to the high-handed act of tho Lieutenant-Governor,   and as they care  more
for that than for tho constitution thuy
naturally voted to condone it.  But the
question is much too  grave to bu suffered   to   rest thore.    The Lieutenant-
Governor is the servant  of the   higher
authorities   at Ottawa, whose   duty it
is to call him to account for any wrong
doing.    We do not anticipate   that   ho
will fare roughly at   thoir   hands,   for
partisanship is as strong   at Ottawa as
at Victoria; but Parliament cannot ignore tho incident, and the whole question   must   come up     for  discussion.
It might, be taken on   to tho   Colonial
Office, hut Mr.  Chamberlain,   wo are
suro,   would   refuse lo   interfere   in a
mattor so purely domestic.    Canadians
have thoir   constitution,   and if  thoy
cannot live up to it, it   is   thoir   own
lookout,    If thoy   cannot   enforce   ro-
���pect for it by a   Provincial  Governor

The great advantage of a classical
education is that it opens a door to a
field of knowledge, and if the student
does not wander in it, his mind is
broadened by knowing that it exists.
A similar effect is produced by an
elementary eduoation in science, and
it, has this advantage, that research and
discovery are continually bringing .to
light new things in this domain, and
iho newspaper press keeps thorn under public notice continually. If the
classical and the technical could be
combined, perhaps tho result would be
belter than that derived from either
alone; but tbo limitation! of time
make this almost impossible in tho
very great majority of cases, and in
view of the exigencies of our progres
sive civilization, there is little room
for doubt that, if u youth must choose
one or the other, he would be wiser to
choose the technical���Victoria Colonist.

His Statements From Two Parties Which

Acousatioss

Dr. Alexander Forin bus banded to
The Minor the following letter for
publioation. Ho admits therein that
be was the author of the previous com
munioation signed "Oivis" and asks
The Miner to explain that lie failed to
hand it in over his own signature because it was iu reply to u letter written by his brother. Judge Forin. Dr.
Forin's letter is as follows:
Editor of Tbo Nelson Miner:
Sir:���In the lirst place I will admit
that I wrote the letter published iu
your paper on the 36th inst., signed
"Civis". I will also admit writing
the second article signed James G.
Kirby in the Tribune of yesterday.
Now in reference to that part of my
letter of the 6th iu which I stated "A
man was refused admittance (to the
Kootenay General Hospital) aud he
died iu Mr. Toetzel's drug store. Another man was sick in the Victoria
Hotel aud tbe hospital doctor respond
ed and refused to take him in the
Kootenay Lake General Hospital be-
iMiist! he was going to die. ' These

Mr.
made against Dr. G. A. B. Hall as tbe
In s tital doctor, or as he wishes to be
known, -'Medical Superintendent of
the Kootenay Lake Geneiul Hospital."
In the Tribune of the 35th Dr. G. A.
B. Hall conies out in an abusive letter
and says that the oharges of "Oivis"
so far as he (Dr. Hall) was concerned
are "notoriously false. " I posted in the
hands of ex-Mayor Houston, as editor
of the paper in which Dr. Hall published his letter, a certified check for
$G0 that said my statements were correct and called upon Dr. Hall to put up
a similiar check payable to the Mayor
of Nelson for charitable purposes. I
leave it to the citizens of Nolson to
say whether he did so. No, he conies
out with a different proposition, a
challenge with no loss than flyeStrings
to it, one of whioh is that ho will
challenge any person to say that "be
refused a fit and deserving person according to hospital rules." Oh, no,
Dr. Hall, we know thnt by the powers vested in you as hospital doctor
you alone had the say whether a person is "fit and desorving. " You stated
mv statements were "notoriously
false" which you could prove. Why
did you uot be ns good as your word
and proceed to prove them false and
earn $e0 for charily (not for your rot
hospital as you wished th.-��� checks payable to). Seeing that you will nit
prove my statements as "notoriously
false," I will proceed to prove them
true, 'nil your contradiction "notoriously false." Take my lirst statement
as to the man who died in Teetzel's
drug store, I submit, the following
which speaks for itself:
"Nolson, Feb. 27, 18911.
"I. Alex McKinnon make statement that I went up to Dr. Hall's
house the night belore Mr. Cooper
died iu Teetzel's drug storo and asked
him to come down and see Cooper, wl o
was in the Treniont Hotel suffering
from sore tongue, and he refused to
come down and did not come dow n
that ni-;ht, nor did be make any enquiries about him the next morning to
me.
"(Signed)       A. F. MCKINNON,
"Chief of Police, Nelson.
"Witnesses:
"A. P. McKoii7.it-.
"J. R. Campbell."
Now, in support of my second stain
ment, the   followiug   statemo it  tails
aloud:
"Nelsou,   Feb.  2(1, 1899,
"I, Mrs. C. F. Goodwin, state that
Dr. G. A. B. Hall was nailed to sia
Mr. Hazelwood at the Viotoria Hotel,
Doc. 27, 1HII7, and that ho refuged to
take him to tho Kootenay hospital,
giving as bis reason tbat tho man
(Hazelwood) was going to die. (Signed) her
"MRS. O. F. (X) GOODWIN,
mark
"Witnesses:
'Mrs. Wm. Blaokwell.
"Wm. Blaokwell,
"J. Williams."
And furthermore, I attended both
Mr. Oooper and Mr Hazelwood and
know positively that the above statements are true, and when Dr. Hall
conies out and stated that my state
ments are "notoriously fiilse" I threw
a challenge ont to him which be is
not man enough to accept. Using his
own words "It is a mean man who is
afraid to come out over his own signature",! ask you, Mr. Editor, which is
the mealiest man, the man who will
tell tho truth ovor a notn do plume, or
the man who will contradict the truth
over his own name? Dr Hall says I
am no "credit to the side I support
or detriment to the lide I oppose". I
will go farther and say that be who
makes such u statement und can't
prove it after offering to do so, should
be a detriment to tho side he supports.
In conclusion I will state that, I do
not criticise a chartiiihle institution
but the actions of the board of management aud any man or body of men
holding such a position, receiving
and disbursing public aud private
funds are open to just criticism. Let
them so conduct the affairs tbat no
one can successfully critioize their action s.

station agent at Trail, who is now iu
the Nelson "onl on the charge of embezzling f u s from the company. His
bondsmen imvn not yet posted ihe sum j
sufficient to secure bis release.
The Trail News speaks right out:
"Yon will generally find lhat tb* Merchant who does not advertise and subscribe for his home paper is narrow
iu bis ideas, and lacks that enterprise
characteristic of a live community,
and is. metaphorically speaking, dead.
Ho knows what he hns to sell, but
nobody else does, unless it be a few of
bis old customers. That's why you always hear him complain of dull
times."

The Kootenui Herald of recent date
tells of a new "beat" which has just

A new beat arrived during tbe week

about 38 feet long. It sails under
the name of the "Klondike. " It v.-as
shipped in from the Sound, and is under contract to tow barges for the railway contractors.
The sm all boys who. a few weeks
aeo. begged fire crackers and received
them from generous Chinamen while
the latter were celebrating their New-
Years, nre now repaying the Mongolians by snow balling' them all daylong. It is too bad that such peaceful
citizens as the Chinese are made Ihe
victims of the cruelty of youngsters
who seem to think that they have a
perfect right to torment Chinamen as
they see fit.
The Presbyterian church was well

"Amusements." The meeting was
then declared open, and several joined
in a general discussion on matters of

ilar meetings every three months.
The Sandon Mining Review, with,
we trust, an imperfoc.t knowledge of
all the circumstances, says: "Nelson
sports are fast earning an unenviable
reputation for themselves. When last
year, at their midsummer celebration,
their rules and regulations bore hard
on outsiders, the visitors were told to
Slav away if they did not like them,
and recently they got such a stomach
full of defeats at Rossland, that wheu
invited by Sandonites to take part in
our carnival here, they would uot
even condescend to answer tho letters.
Fie! Fie! I"
An American lithograhing company has sent to several business men
in Nelson, and undoubtedly elsewhere
in Canada, a sample of lithographic
blotter W'*rk with a half-tone of Sir
| Wilfrid Laurier an a feature. With
the sample was a letter which starts as
follows and which is decidedly humorous: "We take pleasure in sending
vnu enclosed a half tone of your honored Premier, Wilfrid Laurier.
Whether your sympathies are with the
Liberal or the Conservative parties
yon are undoubtedly glad that he has
been elected to fill this high pnsiiion
by the free choice of a majority of
the people.''

Tbe Deer Park Mining Co. an*
operating extensively in the Windermere country. Among the properties
recetly acquired is tho Swansea, a copper mine, aud said to be of great
promise. The development so far consists of 884 feet of tunnelling. The
deepest shaft is down 70 feet. In this
shaft there are green carbonates running from 81 to 88 por cent copper
The average of the whole shaft is 9 32
per cent copper. The breadth of this
deposit of green carbonates is from
eighteen inches to three feet. The
property also carries gold values
Assays of gold have been obtained
from $1.20 to $4 per ton. The company's principal operations, however,
have been on the opposite side ot the
Columbia River in the Selkirk Range,
up Toby Creek and Boulder Creek
Here they have acquired seven properties, all copper and gold propositions,
but not much work has as yet been
done on them.
In an interview with the manager,
Mr. Mulholland, the Golden Miner
learned that the company have also secured the towusite of Copper, on the
west side of Windermere Lake near
its northern end. It is expected that
the region will soon be traversed by a
railway from the Crow's Nest line to
Golden, and with improved transportation facilities the Windermere conn
try will no doubt come to the front.
There is every encouragement to development in the present high prices
of copper.
* *   *
Mr. R. D. Herod, of the Brantford,
Ont., syndicate, has arrived at Trail
to push work on the Violet May,
May Farley, and Bryant Fraction.
He said to a News reporter: "We
think there is shipping ore in Lookout
mountain, and propose to find out,
anyhow, by giving it a good trial. We
went in five feet last spring and got
$27 rock, and I'm confident that a
little development will produce some
remarkable results. I shall put a
force of men to work at once, if the
snow is not too deep, and propose keeping at* it faithfully for a year. We
have the money, aud will push the
work for all it is worth. So soon as
things are in shape we will install machinery and work to the best advantage possible."
* *   #
Tho situation round and about Sandon is thus briefly stated by The Mining Review : The Payne and Last
Chance are shipping withont show
or bluster. The Noble Five is blocking
out its late find and will ship heavily
when it commences iu the early
spring. The Star is developing, await-
in the supply of water to overate its
concentrator. The Ruth is developing
aud stopiug steadily, and may not
ship much again until its concentrator
and tram are constructed in the spring.
The Minnesota Silver Co. have a
large lot of ore ou the dump, and will
only ship to make working room until
lis tram aud concentrator are built iu
the spring. The Reco is developing
and mining steadily, and later will
rosume its old-time shipments. Tho
four shippers at Three Forks and tho
throe at McGuigan are doing their
regular work. The other youiu er
miues around Sandon may not ship
much until packing commences again,
as rawhiding is now dangerous on account of the prevalence of slides.
* *   *
The owners of the Minnie mineral
claim, situate near Hull Siding, claim
to have struck it rich. In a letter to
Nolsoii parties they stale they have
bean driving a tunnel on the property
for the last four weeks and have now
faced up the tunnel and havo 2'-, feot
of ore, with 12 inches of pay streak
carrying high values in copper and
have struck free gold in tho quart/.
The owners of the property are W. S.
