EFFECT IN NELSON OF
EIGHT-HOUR LAW
Nelson,  British Columbia. Tuesday, ju '* ,ej    1899
  ' *4_-,
Tenth Year
The Miners' Union Order a
Strike.
AT    THE   ATHABASCA
The Mine and Mill Continue Running at
Full Blast���Effects at tlie Exchequer
and   the   Ymir   Mines.
On Monday, June 12. the Nelson
Miners' Union carried out their long
talked ot plan of attempting to close
down the Athabasca mine by ordering a strike of the Union men and
their sympathisers. As an attempt to
injure the company the meve fell
very flat. Tho management had tor-
neon the move for somo weeks and
had discounted its effect by engaging
an extra large force. In fact the ao-
tion of the Union was welcome tG tbe
company as it enabled the management to dispense with tho services of
those who wore dissatisfied. While
some inconvenience may be experienced
for a few days the force which remained at work is large enough to
keep the mine and mill operated at
full blast.
The company is expecting to commence very shortly development work
ou a large scale, aud steady and experienced men can no doubt find regular employment iu and around the
mines.
The superintendent of tho Ymir
mine telegraphed yesterday to tbo
office of the British Columbia Gold
Fields not to send any more men to
the mine as uone were required. The
stamp mill is working in full force.
The notices, posted np in the town
of Ymir by the Miners' Uniou, ualling
upon the men to cease work at the
Ymir mine; have been ordered to be
removed. It is understood that the Attorney-General is responsible for this
order.
Tbare are eight men working at the
Exchequer mine at the rate of $3 per
day for the eight hours shift. When
the representatives of the Union visited that mine and requested the men to
leave the mine they refused to do so
or to join the Union. They moreover
told the Uuion delegate that it was
owing to thoir interference that they
were now working for $8 instead of
$8. 50 per day and suggested to the
said delegates that they had bettor
"get" and that right early; which
thoy did.
DOMINION   WINS   FIRST   RAOE.
Race  on Lake    St.  Louis   Results in
Victory For the Canadian Yacht.
Montreal, June 12.���LnBt year's
Seawauhaka cup winner the Domiu
ion, ran away from the White Bear
vacht clubs challenge Yankee in the
fhst of the series of races to be sailed
on Lake St. Louis. The wind blew
lightly from the southeast at tho start
and freshoned np as tho race progressed and died away to almost nothing
before tho race was ended. Dominion
orossed the lino exactly ten minutes
ahead of the Yankee. Tbe race was
witnessed by a large gathering,
though of course the interest was not
as great as it was when the Dominion successfully defended the Seawauhaka Cup. A large party of ladies and
gentlemen from Minneapolis wore
present. The start was made at 2.27,
the Dominion at once taking tho lead
and never relinquishing it. The Canadian boat showed herself much superior in windward work, most of her
gains being made here. She considerably outpointed the Yankee. Towards
the'end of the rnco tho Yankee lost
considerable ground by becoming becalmed while the Dominion still had a
faint liutter of wind to lieip her along
towards the home buoy.
iug of an Indian girl by a medicine
man at the instance of the chief of the
tribe to which the ontOTtunate maiden
belonged, Aocording ii the story tbe
girl was made the victim of a savage
ceremony directed by the medicine
man, under the orders of the ohief.
Her barbarous death was for the purpose of propitiating the great spirit
who had sent the famine by the offering up of a living human sacrifice. J
Troops will be sent to the scene of
the outrage to arrest the murderer and
bring these guilty of the orime to justice, if they have not already paid the
penalty by tne slower process of starvation.

meeting of the board of directors of
tho Canadian Pacific Railway Company today, Sir William Van Home
was elected chairman of the board, aud
Mr. Thomas C. Shaughnessy was

Offices Until Their Successors.
Have Been Appointed.
INDIANS   SUFFERING    FAMINE.
Terrible Condition of Affairs on Upper
Waters of Stewart River.
Viotoria, Juue 11.���The Indians living in the neighborhood of the upper
waters of the Stewart river aro in a
most desperate condition. A terrible
famine prevails in that distriot and
the uufortunato natives have already
been decimated by lack of food. Conditions havo been growing rapidly
worso in this respect, and three miners who have just reached bore from
that country say that the pitiful
scones onacted among the starving Indians beggar description, Tbey are
now almost entirely without food of
auy kind and are perishing in great
numbers. So hopeless is the condition that in a singlo small Indian village no less than HO persons died from
hunger just previous to the departure of
tho prosnectors for this  port.
Tho miners who aro authority for
these statements declare that unless
nbnudaut supplies are dispatched to
the relief of these famishing and <.e-
spondent peoplo their practical extermination is inevitable.
The same trio of returned miners
also tell  ��  shocking story of the kill-
Paris, June 12.���President Loubet
hns accepted the resignation of the
cabinet ministers, and has requested
thorn to retain their offices until their
successors are named.
It is presumed that Loubet will summon the presidents of the ohambers
tomorrow in order to consult with
them on the formation of a new cabinet. On leaving the chamber M. Dupuy observed to a group of deputies in
the lobby : "We hand over the business to luckier bnt not to more courageous men."
The interview between M. Dupuy
aud his colleagues and President Loubet was brief, but cordial. The president expressed his thanks for tho support ho had from the retiring ministers, adding that ho would always remember their sorvices gratefully. M.
Dupuy was agreeably surprised at M.
Loubot's cordiality.
There are many surmises as to tho
composition of tho uew cabinet, but
it is pointed out as tho Dupuy ministry did uot fail on a question involving
the political complexion of the ministry, it iB difficult to sea ou what basis
tho now cabinet will bo selectod.
Paris, Juuo 12.���The successive votes
in tho chamber of deputies today,
clearly demonstrated tho existence of
a majority, including members of
all parties who were determined to
rid themselves of tho premiorshiD of
M. Dupuy tho interpellation of Valiant
was simply a cleverly selected pretext
to oonoefll tho real cause of tho approaching crisis. Socialists and Radicals nlike are dissatisfied with what
thoy cousidered the contradictory attitude of the Dupuy cabinet in the
Dreyfus affair Tho moderates hope to
secure the return of M. Melino topow-
or. The revolutionists, nationalists
and anti-Semites hope, in their opposition to M. Dupuy to find a more tolerant man iu his successor. This is the
explanation of today's voting resulting
ill tho downfall of the oabinot. The
supporters of the government only
numbered 17!i, recruited for the most
part from the ranks of the modorate
Radicals.

INCREASE   OF CANCER.
Formation of an   English   Society  to
Combat This Terrible Diseaso.
London, June 10.--The alarming
increase in mortality in Great Britain from cancer has load to tbe formation ot a society to oombat the disease. Its inaugural meeting was hold
on Wednesday when Sir Oharles Cameron spoke ou the need of the society
and pointed out the number of doathfl
from cancer iu New York has doubled
during the past ten years and that It
is calculated that if the increase is
maintained there will be more deaths

has raised from 885 to 787.

CELEBRATION WOtoN,.
GOING ON HEARTILY
Oommittee Meeting at the
Fire Hall.
A LARGE ATTENDANCE
Kepoits of the Committees��� How  Much
Is to  Be Given to Each-
Asked Too Much.
There was a full attendance at tho
Fire Hall last night of the members of
the vnrious committees aud others who
had been_ summoned thither by the
secretary. The notico calling the
meeting named 8 o'clock as the hour.
Consequently nearly everybody came
at that time. The somewhat dilapidated balcony of, the Fire Hall was
used as a waiting room, and though
some of those who waited were fairly
substantial persons, there was nn ac-
oident to report. Tinio wore on and
the dutiful citizens began to grow impatient, when it was discovered that
the secretary was absent. As that individual had all the papers in his pos
session, it was impossible to commence the proceedings without him.
Finally couriers were despatched to
various places in order to hunt up and
bring either the secretary or his papers. At 9 p. m. Mr. O. A. Waterman
appeared with the papors, but no secretary, and the mayor forthwith convened the meeting, Alderman Thomson
being appointed secretary pro tern.
Mr. Secretary, pro tem, then proceed
to read the reports of the various committees. Some of the committees appeared to be a little extravagant in
their demands, in fact the request of
tho r>.e��oration wnnrnUteq for tjtw was
met with laughter, ft was remaiAeii'
that tbe report of tbe children's races
and orioki t oommittees were the ouly
reasonable ones through strangely
enough the hitters modest request for
fad was ignored.
When all the various reports had
been read it was found that $5,608
were demanded whereas there were
only $8,500 to distribute. This calculation seemed to puzzle the mathematical mind of Manager Waterman who
discoursed on the disadvantages of a
champagne thirst with a beer income.
He also pointed out that, a sum must
be reserved for advertising, printing,
and that mysterious yet, as a rule,
considerable item, known as "miscellaneous "
It was then resolved that a committee of five be nominated by the Mayor
to Bottle and, if neoessary reduce the
various sums demanded by the several
committees, whereupon Messrs. Car-
ley, J. A. Turner, Blake Wilson and
Drs. La Bau and Hall retired to tho
green room to decide this vital matter.
They soon made up their minds and
presented a list to tbe Mayor whioh
the secretary proceeded to read. The
sumB to be donated to eaoh event were
as follows : Horse Races, $1000 ; Rock
Drilling, $500; Caledonian Sports,
$175; Hose Races, $600; Boat Races.
$850; Laorossa matches, $250 ; Bicycle
races, $100; Base ball matches, $250;
Children's Races, $85; Trap pigeon
shooting, $100; Lawn Tenuis matches,
$75; Trados procession, $100. Total
$8,435.
This report waB then moved seconded
and adopted. Mr. Melville Parry addressed the meeting and deplored the
fact that tho boat races were to be
shorn of their prizo money, the committee had asked for $480 tbo boat
racing oommittoo had taken a lot of
trouble to get good men to compote,
had even sent down to Vancniivor at
their own expense, a representative
to the olub thero to arrange for soni"
of its members to visit Nelson on Dominion Day iu order to compete iu the
boat races.
He pointed out to tho meeting that
Nelson was admirably adapted by Nature for boat races and thought that
tho utmost encouragoment should be
given to that branch of sport.
Mr. Brougham endorsed Mr. Parry's
remarks, spoke somewhat unfeelingly
about horse racing as practised in Nelson, and urgod that the wator was the
tnie homo for tho Nelson sportsman.
These views evidently did not appeal to a certain section of the audience. Horse races, including mule
races, were a sacred institution in
Nelson, not to be Bpokcn of lightly or
with jesting tongue.
Then Mr. Strachan pointed out that
the report having beeu carried it was
out of order to criticise it. He, however, moved, Dr. Hall seconding, that
tbe report be reconsidered. This was
apparently done though later on it
transpired that the motion had not
been put to the meeting. Tho report
was then considered in detail. Mr.
Marks was indignant heennso only
$100 was allowed for tho trades procession.
Manager Waterman rose to the occasion and answered Mr. Mark's criticisms skilfully.
Mr. J. A. Turner moved to reduce
tbo horse raoiug prizes by $100, giving an extra $100 towards a fireworks
fond and   this   motion   was   carried.
An endeavor   to   wipe uwav   the   trim
'noting grant was lost owing   to   the
_  ests   of Dr. Hall and the eloquent,
.ugh lengthy   speech for its  defence
made by Mr  Galllher.
Then Mr. Carley with Celtic vehemence moved tout the "great national
game" of laorOBSe be awarded the full
amount suggested was curried neni con.
The meeting began to grow restive
and some, possibly those of dense understanding, wire hazy as to what the
actual resolutions before the meeting
were. In the end the amounts reconi
���mended by the committee were nil resolved upon save that the horse races
were to be minus $100,
Mr. Melville Parry again pleaded
the cause of aquatics nnd Mr. J. \.
Turner oame to his assistance by moving that the $100 voted for fireworks
be banded to the boat race committee
for decoration prizes. This resolution
was carried nnd the meeting wns ended at II p.m. ���three weary hours in n
Fire Hall I
It did not transpire whether tho
suggestion of tbe various committees
as to the number or variety of events
they proooso to hnve, were to be adopted. However, the following events which
are taken from the committee reports
will probably take place.
Drilling Contests.���Each team to
drill 10 minutes on a down bole, lo
minutes on a breach bole and 10 minutes on an upraise hole. Drills to be
7��� inch steel. The winner to drill at
least 40 inches.
Horse Races���Consisting of two open
quarter mile races, a quarter mile for
Nelson horses only, an open BOO yards
race, a pnnv race and a mule race.
Caledonian Sports���Including, pipes,
nipers, four best costume, tossing the
caber, weight putting, races jumping
and tng nf war.
Bicycle Races.���Including a " chain -
piom inp of the Kootenays" race, lull
climbing obstaole, aud childreiis'
racos.
Lawn Tennis matches���Gentleman's
singles and doubles and mixed doubles
Then there will be lacrosse and base
ball matches, cluldrens races, a hose
reel race, trap shooting and boat raci s
Truly a marvellous programme, but
tbo question is how to see all the
events V
However, everyone will at least have
an opportunity of selecting that particular sport that may most meet bis
fancy for the Citv has been lavish in
number and variety of events.
And be it remembered that close on
$8,600 will bo distributed in prizes, a
large sum for n City tbe size of Nelsou.

M, Bernaert Makes Some
Insinuations.
YESTERDAYS     DOINGS
The Discussion kegardiue the Furnishing
Newspapers   With  Abstracts
of Speeches.
The Hague, Juue 12 ���The drafting
oommittee of the arbitration committee of Ihe peace conference met today
and continued the discussion of nrbi-
ttntion schemes. Tho delegates not
having received additional instructions
from their respective governments the
oommittee adjourned until Friday.
The discussion as to furnishing the
newspapers with ubstrncts of the proceedings developed a remarkable soene.
M. Bernaert head of the Belgian delegation, arising to speak addressing M.
lie Staal in tbo most pointod manner
said that publicity might as well be
granted ns certain documents had
beon publsihed iu tbo nowspaperB.
"Some of these documents," ho said,
looking M. De Staal lull iu the faoe,
"were stolen I have heard from De
Staal, but I cannot believe this, feeling sure tbat tbe visitors to the Aud-
dolf hotel are all far too honest to
stoop to theft. "
M. De Staal reoelved these remarks
in silence.
POULTNEY B1GEL0W ON "THE YANKEE SOLDIER."
Praise for  the  Regular   and  Volunteer
Troops, But Condemnation for
the Management.
London, June 12.���At the United
Service Institute this afternoon in tbe
presence of u distinguished oompany,
Mr. Poultney Bigelow read a paper on
"The Yankee Soldier," a eulogy of
American regular troops and of raw
material volunteers, but a severe condemnation of tho political element,
which, he doclarod, governed all appointments, and coii'p.cts. Ho said
that on his own personal kuowledge
a�� a result of the lack of organization
and supplies before the first transport
left Tampa tho American army pre
sented many features incident to a dis
nstrous campaign. "Thero was, " Mr.
Bigelow added, "a complete break
down of all the machinery for providing soldiers with food and equipments,
and the hotels were crowded with staff
Offioers   who   were as helpless iu their
new uniforms as clergymen In a conning tower."
Mr. Bigelow further asserted that
when he exposed the matter, there being  still   time to remedy  it, be  was
met with a storm of indignant denials
and some of the newspapers DOITS
sponi'ei ts at Tampa raised the question, whether be should be "Strung to
a   sour appletree, or generally disposed
of  us  a harmless  lunatic."   "Sinoe
then; the speaker continued,"the commander in chief hns given publio testimony that several if not all of the
military departments, were scandalously inefficient, that  emboli I   beef
was served to the men and he (the
comninndcr-iii-ehiof was practically
drawing on his Imagination when he
pronounced all things ready for the
Cuban invasion. "
A general discussion followed, General Morris, commander of the Woolwich district, endorsing Mr. Bige-
low'fl remarks as agreeing with his
own information while other speakers took othor views of  the matter

\:,r: .-.,��� r ��*-is4Tbo���� met tonight and
discussed the udvisiihlity of giving a
benefit for Fitzsimmons at the Ooney
Island Athletic. Club noxt Saturday
night. At tho conclusion of the conference Marital Julian statod that no
benefit would be held. It it is quite
probable that Filtzsmmons will within
the next 10 days challenge Jeffries to
meet him agaiu in the near future in
another fight, for the heavy weight
championship.
Sun Franofsoo, Cal, June 12.���Tom
Sharkey, the pugilist, has received
ihe following telegram from his manager, Tom O'Routko, dated New York
June 11: "Have accepted Jeffries
challenge to tight, vou early in September. You had bettor come here at
once. There is nothing out there.
Answer."
To the above the sailor replied:
"Am at Springs, doing well, working right aloug, will leave for New
York in three weeks." From the
above it would appear that the obal-
lenge issued by Jeffries, just after bis
defeat of Fitzsimmons will lead to
some arrangement for a battle between
Jeffries nnd Sharkey.

monotonous place Victoria must be I
Nelson loves its thunder. To all who
have souls for the awful and majestic
in Nature, the magnificent storm of
Saturday last made amends for muoh
abominable weather. We would as
soon think of levelling down our mountains as doing without our thunder
storms. Poor Viotoria 1 We can understand now muoh about its people
that has heretofore been subject of profound wonderment.
THE LOCAL CRISIS.
The  Vanoouver World  is  strongly
Opposition,   and  especially hostile  to
Mr. Joseph Martin; and as usual with
partisan papers of the bitterer  sort it
may be inclined to see the   things it
wishes   rather   than   the things   that
are.    Buf it has evidently some foundation for the following, which appeared in tbe issue tbat reaobed us on Sunday :   "The crisis in Provincial affairs
has  nearly    been    reached.   It is a
well understood faot that the influence
of tbe Attorney-General  has been dissipated, and that tbe Minister of Finance has come ont on top.   If evidence
were needed of this faot, it is found in
the presenoe of Mr. L. P. Duff, of Viotoria, acting with Mr. Martin   for tbe
Province in connection witb the Dead
man's Island  matter.   One  does  not
have  to go  further  tban   Hastings

has taken a  firm stand, and distrust*
Ing his colleague,   has  associated Mr.
Duff with  him,   with   intruotions   to
uphold the British   Columbia case, no
matter  what   tbe    hazards may   be.
He is taking   bis political fortunes into jeopardy, for it is possible that Mr.
Martin might defeat him in tbe oity���
though we do  not   believe he could���
but he   assumes   the   only   postion  a
Minister of Hor Majesty's Government
in British Columbia  oould in defend
ing Provincial  rights  and securing to
the people  their  heritage.   We have
all heard of 'Fighting Joe,' but it must
be a snpine fighting  Joe who  permits
the Exeontive  to plaoe another lawyer
practically over him when the initiative oame from   him.   It   iB currently

fine to pay for munioipal negleot, but
not too much when it contributed to the

EIGHT-HOUR  LAW.
Deadman's Island has been making
it exceedingly lively for a number of
persons during the past month or Ivo,
and if in the end it shall succeed in
killing off a Minister it will deserve a
ohange of name. The part of the foregoing which admits of no doubt is
the statement that Mr. Duff has been
associated with the Attorney-General
in looking after the olaim of tbe Province. But whether this has been done
against Mr Martin's wishes must necessarily and largely be a matter of
rumor. Mr. Martin would hardly care
to say that it was, even if it were so;
and however strained tbe relations between him and Mr. Cotton, the latter
would feel bound to observe a decent
reticenoe in the case as long as Mr.
Martin remained a Cabinet colleague.
It is true little birds have a fashion
of carrying tales of tbis nature, to the
great surprise of those implicated in
the subject matter of them, and it
may be that one of these has chirped
into The World eanotum a fairly" ao-
ourate impression of the situation.
While that situation may not tie as
volcanic as The World represents, there
is no doubt it is full of disturbing elements, whioh may any day result in
an explosion fatal to either Mr. Martin or Mr. Cotton, and just at present it looks as if Mr. Martin were to
he the victim. Should this prove to be
tbe case, The Miner feels bound to express its deliberate and deep rooted
oonviotion that British Columbia will
have no cause to mourn. With many
admirable qualities, Mr. Martin is
and always will be a political impossibility. He has oourage, and abilities, and reputation for honesty, although tbe honesty itself may not
be so apparent. But he must rule. He
iB intolerant of divided authority.
The word serve was omitted from bis
curriculum. And be is a born agitator. He has an insatiate craving to
be always in the publio eye, and always as the direotor and diotator and
arbiter. With all bis abilitias, he bas
never succeeded in rising above the
level of the demagogue. Tbe applause
of the proletariat is as musio to bis
ears and comfort to his soul, and to
obtain it he would go to any length of
misohief short of self-destruction ; tbe
applanse of others he would prize even
more highly, bnt be knows he laokn
the art to gain it. He could do much
good, but the mixture of the bad with
it would take away all its virtue.
The day he steps down and out of a
controlling influence in the political
affairs of the Province will be a bappy
one for the people of British Columbia,
whether they know it now or not.

A RELIC OP   THE PASL
In the window of Messrs. Lillie
Bros., there is displayed a pair of
lady's ball room slippers which are
authenticated as being over two hundred years old, the maker thereof
whose name is on the advertising label
inside the slippers hiving been patronized by the Princess Sophia who was
born in 1666 and who died in   1726.
They were secured one hundred
years ago by a grand aunt of Mrs.
A. B. Gray of this Oity, and were by
her, when an old lady, much prized
for their antiquity. The narrow pointed toes and small heels are not unlike the slippers worn at the present
time Could the slippers speak they
could doubtless tell of many a scene
midst courtiers gay and ladies fair, all
of whom together with their children
and children's children have passed
over to that "bourne whence no traveler returns.''

HEABING.
OP FOR
A Oase Regarding Amount of Salary and
Interest   on   a   Promissory Note.
The ease of Davis vs. OuniiniiigK
oame on for bearing before Mr. Justice Drake aud a jury at 11 a. m. yes-
torday.
The plaintiff, wrio was a clerk to
tho defendant at the defendant's hotel (tho Slooan Hotol, Kaslo), elainipd
u balanoe duo to him (or salary at the
rate of $100 per month. He further
claimed $U>7 for money paid by liim
for tlio defendant at his request,nud also $135 duo ou a promissory note by the
defendant in favor df the plaintiff. Tho
defendant admitted the promissory noto
tho amount of which he paid iuto
court, nu.1 also that there was a balance duo, which he also paid into
court, but (lie plaintiff's salary was
only at the rate ot $50 a month. Tne
plniutiff was called and gave evidence
in support of his claim. The defendant and his wife wore then examined.
Counsel for plaintiff and defendant
haviuK addressed tho court the judge
suirmed up. Ho pointed out to the
jury the irregular manner iu which
the hotel books were kept. It was for
the jury to decide on the evidence
whether the plaintiff had proved his
ease, and to dn so they would have to
answer tho following questions:
1. Was there any agreement between
plaintiff and defendant as to salary?
And if so,
3. What was the amount of that salary?
il. If thero was no such agreement
what was the value of the plaintiff's
services?
4. Did the plaintiff pay $127 for the
defendant?
5. Did the plaintiff demand payment
of the promissory note?
The jury retired for about au hour
to consider their verdict. They returned at fi :80 p. in. They iguored
questions 1 and 2, but, as to tho third,
they found that that the plaintiff's services wero worth $70 a month and
therefor found that he was entitled to
the balanco di.o on that ratio. The
4th quastion they answered in favor
of the defendant. As to tho 5th question, thev fonud that t'io plaintiff did
demand payment of the promissory
note and that therefore he was entitled to interost thereou. Judgment
was not given. The court then adjourned until 10:30 this morning.

In advertising, competition and opposition are often confounded. "Competition is the life of trade," opposition is rank poison to real legitimate
business. The merchant who wastes
his time clubbing his neighbors and
digging pitfalls, will eventually fall
into his own trap.
Opposition means unfriendly strife
and hostility, without success to either party. The benefits of competition
are worldwide, encouraging kooner attention to business, neatness in tl e
arrangement of show room and windows in and courtesy ou the part of
the employees. Tho buyer notioes all
this, and orders with an enjoyment
that is noticeable.
NELSON TEN YEARS AGO.
TWO COULD   PLAY   THE  GAME.
Some   of   tho  Trials   Nelson  Ladies'
Have to Undergo.
A lady well known in social circles
in Nelson had au experience with her
Chinese "help' that was rather pecu
liar. Jim was fresh from a laundry
where he had picked up a little Eng
lish. His mistress wanted to teach
him to attend to the door, so on the
morning of the reception day she
started her schooling. As olearlv and
explicitly as possible she explained
when the front door bell was rung Jim
was to answer it. If there was a lady
caller at the door he was to ask her to
step in, show her in to the drawing
room, take bor card nnd thon come upstairs and tell the   lady of the   house.
To impress the lesson she went out
side and   rang   the  bell.    Jim opened
the door, sho   asked  if  Mrs. was
at home, Jim rather sulkily nodded
aud by dint of somo prompting carried
out his part of tho programme. This
wns repeated three or four times, Jim
looking sulkier and doing it worse
each time till she gave up in .despair
After luncheon she wns iu her room
dressing when n ring came. A silence
followed, but no souud of Jim gojng
to the door was heard. A second riug.
Same result. Likewise a third and a
fourth and then, thoroughly angry,
sho made herself presentable as hastily
as possible and hurried down the
stairs, wondering who tho caller was,
as tho bell was rung several more
times before sho reached   the door.
Mrs. opened Ihe door and there
stood tho Ohinauian looking full of
fight.
"What do you mean by this imperii.
nonce, Jim?" sho demanded, to be met
by tlio surprising answer, delivored
fiercely :
"You makes fool of me lis morning
���Me make fool of you lis afternoon,
you no makes fool mo again. Me
smart as you are."
He had evidently thought hiH mistress wus playing a practical joko ou
him when sho was instructing him,
und brooding over it had finally docid-
od to retaliate U) kind nud so bad
gone out the back door anil round to
the frout aud boon ringing tho boll
himself.
A geutleman who has recently been
in Nelson gives rather an interesting
account of his first visit to the City.
He camo here first of all in the autumn of IH8!) in order to try and put
through a deal foa tho purchase of the
Silver King mine. His route was via
Revelstoko and Arrowhead; thou
down th" Arrow Lakes in a boat to
'Robsou. At Robson be took a pack
horse and camo in on the Dewdney
trail putting in a uight with the
Wards at the Ferry.
When he got to Nolson ho camped on
the Hat where the O. P. R. nopot now
is, and remained there about five
weeks. Nelson then consisted of five
shucks but the townsite had already
beeu marked out. He was present at
the Government sale of lots and invested $1200 in real estate. This property,
which uufortunatoly ho did not keep,
is now valued at over $00,000.
His deal with the Halls did not come
off. He offered $200,00 for the property
ou a workiug bond for one year, but
no cash.
The Hails wanted 10 per cent, of the
money to be pnirl iu cash or, in the alternative, $40,000 spot cash, for the
property but these terms were declined.. In 1891 he again paid a short
visit to Nelson but had not been here
again until last week. Ho was very
much surprised with tho wonderful
growth of tbe town as well hb with
the permanent aspect of must of the
buildings and houses, and predicts that
Nelson is the coming town of tbe
Province.
Mi. Rhodes is no exception, traveling
from camp to camp despite bad weather but meeting with mus-t or oonraging
success iu his chosen work.
The English language is spoken more
or less accnrately over one half of tbo
globe, roughly speaking. It is reserved
to the States, however, to improve!
(Englishmen and Canadians call it
something else) on the national tongne.

of un undertaker's advertisement, from

Arrangements are being made to

team, who havo been champions of R.
O. for several years, to play an exhibition game hero on the 1st of July, by
the Nelson Lacrosse team. Tbe Nelson team expect to go on a tour to
the Coast in tho fall, when they will
play the winners of that distriot for
the championship of tbe Pro7ince, the
game likely being played at the Provincial Exhibitiou at New   Westminster.

PLEASURE   ON    THE   PACIFIC.
The O. P. R. Pacific steamships are
very popular with the travellers who
ubo them. One of these who recently
made the voyage westward wrote from
Yokahama to a friend in the East:
"The resident in the East has one advantage of bis brother at home, and
that is, he onn nt times travel on an
"Empress" of the Canadian Paoifiu
line. He who has not done so, has surely
missed cue of the pleasures of life.
For it is a pleasure to travel at any
thing from fifteen to seveuteen knots
ou a huge yacht, whose meaus of propulsion, in the eutire absence of vibrations, can only be guessed at; where
faultless meals aie served up, with the

ADVERTISING AND ADVERTISER
One of tho best advertisers in Nel-
Bon, and, in consoqneuce, one of tho
most successful business men, contributes the following to The Minor,'and
Which Tho Miner has muoh ploasuro in
commending to its advoitising patrons:
There is a great deal of talk about
advertising boing something hard to
understand. Advertising is the least
mysterious nf all things. Thero is no
secret about advertising. It stands
for itself. Thero is more mystery
about "uo advertising". Once and
awhilo a follow can plug along, nud
mako n small competence and retire
from business fairly well to do. The
wondor is "How did   he do it?"
He is generally a man who keops
open from live o'clock in the morning
until 11 at night, opens Sunday morning if such thing is nllowed, does bis
own sweeping out, squeezes every
nickel as if it wore his all, utver enjoys himself socially, and is known iu
the commnnitv as an old moss-back.
But the man who advertises properly
oomes  in   broad  daylight  with  each

The Miner is informed that in be
half of a company centered here application was made yesterday to Mr. Jow
ett, magistrate, to Kraut permission to
two men in its employ to carry fire
arms for the protection of the company's property which it is afraid
may be jeopardized in conaseqnenoe
of the strike. The urgent hope will
be that matters bave not reached tbis
necessity, and it is only by moderation
on both sides that such danger can be
avoided. Mr. Jowett, it is understood,
declined to grant the permission, holding that the evident in support was
not sufficient to justify it.
t, ������ ���
Mr. Maxwell Stevenson, tbe President of the Highlander Mining & Milling Oompany arrived in town yesterday, Mr. Stevenson is a prominent lawyer in Philadelphia and has
influenced there a considerable amount
of oapital to be invested in this country. The aforesaid oompany is now
fully stocked and are commencing
work on three of their Ainswortb por-
perties, the Highlander, Black Diamond and Little Island, upon an extensive soale. A flume over a mile
long from the concentrator to the
Highlander has just been completed.
Mr. Stevenson goes today to Ains-
worth with his surveyor, Mr. A. E.
Hodgins, in order to commence the
driving of a 2 000 foot tunnel in the
Highlander. The last asBay from tbat
property  was as   follows:
Silver, 273 ounces; gold, $5 value to
the ton, and lead 50 per cent. Mr.
Stevenson pins his faith to the Ains
worth camp. The properties there require a considerable amount ol money
to be spent on development but they
will, in his opinion, in the eud, fully
justify that expenditure.
Mr, E. L. Sawyer, who is interested in the St. Elmo mine, came into
town yesterday, from Sandon. He is
of the firm ot E. L. Sawyer & Co.
of Toronto and New York. Up San
don way he saw many miners, nearly
all of whom spoke bitterly of the eight
hour law, as interfering with their
liberties and interjecting trouble and
unrest where none were necessary.
They have little love for the politicians
who are endeavoring to use them for
6nds of their own. Mr. Sawyer thinks
a terrible mistake has been made in
forcing a conflict between owners and
miners. Tbe disturbance is keeping
out many thousands of capital, that
were waiting investment as. soon as
the season opened. Tbe effeot is certain to be most injurious, of which
many evidenoes have already presented
themselves.
The miners who have been working
at the Granite have left the mine.
Some of them were seen in town yes-
teday. Oapt. Dunoan shows no concern and intends closing down everything until this temporary derangement of affairs has passed over.

Slooan Oity, June 12.���Strikes and
good ones seem to be the order of the
day in this camp. One of the latest was made by Jackson Radoliffe on
his claim called the Black Hussar.
This ledge runs through four claims,
and it is 13 feet wide, carrying galena and lead, an assay giving 210
ounoes silver and 60 per oent. lead.
The four claims are grouped. The property lies on Lemon creek
The Evening Star shut down lust
week on account of bad air. When
arrangements are amde it will be opened up again and a larger force than
ever put to work.
Work is being pushed on tbe Arlington mine Borne 12 men being at work.
The old wages being in foroe.
Business is improving daily. The
Tamaraok whioh was bonded by Henderson and Qetbing 1b being worked
and looking fine, at present ore is being sacked and a oar load will be
shipped soon.

Sandon, June 12.���The Slocan Star
mine laid off part of its foroe this
morning, leaving 85 men underground
at regulation hours and union wages.,
the union called them out nt noon,
thus leaving the Slocan Star closed tonight. The miners are holding a
meeting tonight to consider various
matters. The Slocan Star management
offered to pay $3.25 for miners and
$2.75 for car men and muckejrs, the
offer was promptly refused. The union offioers are sanguine of success and
are prepared to stay out for an inde
finite perjod if necessary. Perfect
order reigns and no trouble is anticipated unless mine owners attempt to
import nonunion men which is not
belioved will be done.
school was an nitelligent'young Cuban,
named Ramoa Martinez, a graduate
of the University of Havana, who had
in his scanty library suoh bocks as
Wickersham's "Methods of Instruction," Sully's "Psychology of Teaching," Froebel's "Education of Man,"
nearly all of Herbert Spencer's works,
and the educational books of Ourrie,
Sheldon and Fitch ; but whose whole
teaching outfit, or plant, if I may so
call it, consisted of two small blackboards ; a map of half the world on a
globular projection, issued as an ad-
vertisment by the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company ; one worn, tattered copy of Ollendor's "New Method
of Learning English;" a few local
butterflies, minerals and shells of his
own collection; half a dozen kindergarten cubes, pyramids, spheres, etc.,
of glass, which he had bought with
his own mqpey ; and a small assortment of second-hand carpenter's tools.
With the single copy of Ollendorff he
was teaching one hundred and four
boys English, and by means of the
Canadian Pacfiic advertising chart he
was endeavoring to make them acquainted with the world in which
they lived. "
Canadian Pacific officials olaim that
nn better mnps are needed for teaching
in the schools of Cuba or any other
country than those issued by tbe company. The one alluded to by Mr.
Kennan shows the world on a proper
scale, and i? uot distorted, as some
charts are frequently liable to be, and
being on Meroator's projection, is absolutely accurate.���Montreal Herald.

HOW   OANADA IS   ADVERTISED.
Tbe Canadian Faoiflo Oompany has
the reputation of being a pretty good
advertiser, but many doubtless would
bo surprised to learn thnt its publications are put to useful purposes in distant lands. In a recent number of the
New York Outlook, Mr. George Kenna" has an interesting article on the
"Regeneration of Onha" in whioh incidentally is told how thoroughly
Canada is advertised abroad by this
company. Mr. Kennan described his
