How the C.P.B.. Secret Service Traced the
Men Who Were  Parties in the
Conspiracy to Steal.
When a railway oompaly starts out
to Investigate what it believes to be
orookednesa on the part of its employes it never does anything by
halves. When it was suspected that
11 conspiracy to rob the C. P. R. was
working in [rood order in the Boundary country, tho C. P. It. officials immediately dispatched several agents to
that country. They went there in the
guise of commercial travelers, bartenders, etc., and had eyes and ems
for everything going ou. For instance a piano player in a notorious
house in Kosslnnd hail been approached by one of the secret service people,
aud an arrangement made with him
to report any talk which he might
hear among the inmates referring to
any travelers from Kossland to Green-
Wood or back again, and also to mention what might come to him of any
of the suspected mou.
It was through this source that the
first direct talk came to the chief of
detectives in charge. He was wired
back by code to follow up the. line
of procedure. One of tlie agent8 in
Rossland (jot out one night, presumably as n prospector on a "good
time" witli a hotel runner. The party
drifted around the town, money bo
ing freely spent by everyone In the
various bars, and well into tlie morning they rea-hed this house.
Money again went quickly. Bottles
of wilie were opened (Stoppers were ordered sent in. and in all of this lavish
expenditure the hotel runner more
than "held lip bis end."    Getting free
and talkative, the supposed prospector
asked tlie hotel runner why be kept
at the job he had and jokingly said
that "any man who would carry
trunks and valises for commercial travelers when lie could go ont and discover a mine and get rich didn't know
his business."
"Ob, 1 don't know," replied tho
runner. 'I've got a pretty good mint
here myself, and I'm making just
about as mueb as any long-legged
prospector that   ever went np a hill."
C, I'. II. ticket for the Columbia &
Western line, from Rossland to Greenwood, and the ticket is now in possession of tlie secret service department
of the i', 1'. R, Tlie procedure
described in the introductory paragraphs of this article, was gone
through. The passenger went to the
station and got aboard the train, as
hundreds of other passengers did, entered the smoking car and secured a
Seat. When the fares were collected,
he handed up his ticket, and the conductor returned him a hat check, in
return therefore.
This hut cheek is also in possession
of the secret service branch, and with
a specimen ticket is being used in tlie
present investigation,        ���
This experience of the special having been reported to the head olliee
convinced them that all that was required was a littlu inoro evidence,
and the tightening of tho nets commenced.
The men in (Ireenwood acting for
tlio department were told to associate
freely in barrooms with the runners
at that end, as it was suspected that
they wire getting careless in their
success. It was not more than a few
days before they had crsonally seen
tickets sold by the runners to other
men going to Rossland.
One man reported that he'was within two feet of a (Ireenwood runner,
nnd two prospectors, when tickets
were sold to both of the milling men,
and paid for by them, they being assured by the runner that the conductor would carry them through, and
that hundreds of others were traveling the same way, Tbe whole transaction was described after the tickets
were sold to the secret service man,
by the seller of the ticket.
lie said that this thing had been
going on ever since tlie railway wus
built, and that it was "dead easy."
The syndicate men were doing B land
olliee business, and all the runners in
the Kootenays were trying to get Into
the combination. They would not let
them in.   however,   though   occaston-
KKOM CHINA.
The conversation going on, the sup
posed prospector   laughingly  doubted a"y <*��- i?ave the ����tstdeifl ��  ohanee
his words,observing that there wern't!'�� niaki
enough tips given out   around bis ho
tel   to give hint over 31(1 a month over j
wages.
"That's all right," was theanswer,
"but there's a railroad running out of
Kossland and a lot of passengers travelling on it, and I can get a dollar oil'
the ticket of every passenger going
out if I know he's right."
"Well, how do you do that'."' said
the prospector���"the C, 1'. R, doesn't
pay commissions over lines where
there's no competition,"
"Well, there happens to be competition here," said the runner with a
laugh. "The conductors have got
something to say about carrying passengers, and I do their business."
The other seemingly got indignant
at this stage of the proceedings, and
told the runner that be bad known
him for months and they had been
pretty good friends, yet the runner
had let him pay out hundreds of dollars to the I'. 1'. K., when he might
have given liini tlie tip and let him
down for half fare.
"Well," said tho runner, "you
don't have to do it any more. You
say you are going down to (Ireenwood
tomorrow���if you like I'll get you a
ticket that will carry you there, which
will savo you $*> and make one for
me."
The thing was arranged then and
there, and an appointment mado for
the following morning.
Tlie train leaves Kossland for (Ireen
lollar or two by bringing
likely men to them, or getting hag-
gage checked through free.
'This is the part which would more
likely implicate the station agents as
doing direct work other than having
the tickets sold and not stamped in
the lirst place. The system of checking baggage is so well known now to
passengers on all railway lines on this
Continent that the mere fact that a
baggageman in tho employ of a railway company lias checked baggage
without being lirst shown the passenger's ticket is a matter for suspicion
at once. Tlie rules are absolute in the
matter. They are so strict that it is
cause for discharge from the company's employ to oheck u trunk, a
valise, or any other article over any
of the lines to attach the check to that
piece of baggage even though it may i
uot be put on the train without the
passenger wishing bis baggage so
cheeked lirst producing and showing
tbe man so checking the baggage his
ticket.
The reason for this is obvious. A
traveler having baggage to be shipped
over the company's, line can only carry that baggage by virtue of having
paid the company tho regular tariff
rate of his transportation. Should bis
baggage be allowed to be checked
without his purchasing that ticket at
tho company's olliee where tickets are
i regularly sold it would leave a wide-
open chance for conductors who are
! running trains to carry him to his des-

I'aris, Nov. 2.���A dispatch to the
Havre agency from Pekln dated 31st
October, says:
"The foreign ministers continued
today tho discussion of the peace proposals to be presented to the Chinese.
Tlie French proposals were accepted.
Additional specifications will be discussed Monday. On account of tlie
necessity for thorough accord between
the different cabinets the final note

TUB HAY IN COUItT.
Tho Case of Lawr vs. Parker is Now
Being Heard.
At ?, o'clock this afternoon Judge
Walkem rendered a decision in the
Lawr vs. Parker case in favor ot tlie
plaintilV, Lawr, as he said he could
not go back of the ccrtilicate of work
issued to Lawr.
The case of Mauley vs. Collom in
which action is brought to adverse
the Arlington No. 2 which it is alleged occupy a part of the Native Silver
claim was opeued before the Supreme
Court this morning. At the request of
the plaintiff the case was adjourned
until next Tuesday. Messrs. Galllher
and Wilson appeared for the plaintiff
and Messrs. Maedonald and Johnson
lor the defence. This necessarily
means that tho Kossland assizes which
were to have opened next Monday will
again be adjourned.
The next and last case on the list to
come before the session of the court
was that of Lawr vs. Parker. The
trouble has arisen over a mineral claim
on .Morning Mountain adjoining the
well known Venus property. From the
evidence it was ascertained that Mr.
William Lawr located the claim as
tho Rebecca in tlio fall of 1808, but
did his assessment on the Ida claim
which adjoins the Rebecca. He did
this thinking that the work would apply for both claims. Last fall tl e
claim was rcstaked by W. II. Warren
in tho name of Mr. llolden, who afterwards sold it to Mr. Charles Parker. Mr. Lawr is now bringing action to keep Mr. Parker from trespassing. At the end of the morning session tbe evidence of the plaintilV had
been taken. Mr. Lawr was the first
witness and ho told how ho had located the claim and that he had done the
assessment work in good faith thinking that it would hold both claims,
Mr. .lohn McLatehie, Provincial Land
Surveyor, was called to give evidence
and he produced a map showing the
situation of the claims. Mr. II. Inskip

place at tbe mining recorder's olliee,

JUST  A  HAT
But It Was Worn  by Paul
Kruger  and  That Is
Wha.Counts.
It Is Now the Property of a
Young Lady of Easton.
Pennsylvania.
A Vancouver dispatch says: The
adventures of an old Hoer bat would
be u ratchy title for a storiette, and
the material for such a romance is on
view ut present In the Canadian Pacific Railroad telegraph offices, Vancouver, in the shape of the battered
old headgear supposed to havo been
worn by Oom Paul himself. The bat
has been on the tram]) for one year
and three mouths.and has attached to
it la tags. The history as recorded
on the t.'igs is sufficiently interesting,
but if the old hat could only speak
what a tale it could unfold.
From the record read upon tho tags,
it would appear that an unknown
young lady of Huston, l'u., who bad
relatives living in South Africa, bad
sent to her as a keepsake, a large felt
hat formerly worn by Kruger. This
unknown young lady, presumably
beautiful aud romantic, was seized
with the fancy that she would like
tbe whole United States of America to
see Kruger's hat, and she decided to
send it across the continent and ask
to have it sent back from 'Frisco to
her.
That was in July, 1809, and the
poor old hat that Kruger wore is still
on the bum. A battered crown with
out a king. Tin- young lady first sent
the hal to a friend in an express office
ut Easton, Pa. The lirst friend writes:
"My friends in the carry line please
put your hall mark on this hat. O.
K. it and sond it to 'Frisco. 'Frisco
friends please ship it back to Easton,
l'u., and it will be handed back to tbe
young lady who started it on its
travels.''
This tag is not dated, but tho next
one to it was the earliest dated tag
on the hat is one labeled Asbury Park,
July .7, 1899, From this time on the
bat was taggod at every important
city and town en route. It has been
across the continent twice and has
visited England and the Orient ou a
trip around the world. Some of the
bright remurks upon the cards would
indicate that express men and railway officials were not the dullest people on earth. One man advertises for
a position, lie will go any place in
the world und do any old thing for an
honest living.
The unknown young lady, and this
is where the onianco comes in, received three offers of marriage through
the medium of the tugs, but alas the
honorable proposals are a little lardy
in reaching the fair unknown.
It is impossible to arrange the tags
us to dute, but here are some of tho
sayings, picked out promiscuously:

TEN YEARS AFTER.
An "Old Timer" culled ut The Min
cr olliee this morning to say that hi
had read witll a great deal of interest
the extracts published in yesterday's
paper from The Miner of ten years
ago and suggested that a few more
might be read with interest not only
by the "Old Timers" but also by the
".Iiuinie come Latlies," as he expressed it. Por bis benefit, if for nothing
else, The Miner today publishes sonic
more extracts from its columns of ten
years ago, a time when Mayor Houston, now in opposition in u business
senso, was connected with the staff.
The extracts follow :
"That the (Joveinment is but
slightly interested in the welfare of
tbe people here is becoming almost
proverbial. The surveyor general announced a sale of lots for the 30th
ultimo in Nelson. Prospectors who
had a little money and were anxious
to get a homo to which to bring their
families, tramped for miles over the
mountains back to Nelson to be at the
Hale, miners at work in the mines got
leave of absence for a few days leach
day being worth (3.50) und came here
for the, same purpose; men arrived
from various parts of the lake; and
one or two from the boundary. Their
time, money and travel were fruitless.
All found that, the sale had, for some
unknown reason, been indefinitely
postponed. Such treatment is unjust,
and will redound to the Robson Government's injury some day. West
Kootenay is rapidly growing. John
Robson will yet realize that it would
have been better to treut this district
witli some consideration than allow
it to toss at the mercy of the moss
covered old fogies who have so muddled matters by pottering und tinkering with its affairs."
"Hoover and Cook have dissolved.
Mr. Cook has retired and is suceeded
by Mr. Craddock, The new linn Imported this week some of the finest
grapes and apples ever brought into
Nelson. The Miner thanks Hoover
and Craddock for the samples received,
and wishes those handling whiskey
and socks Would follow the new firm's
example."
".lohn Houston, of The Miner, is
spending a week about the boundary
line to sec if, by his ragged and tattered appearance, he cun shame u few
more people in those pails into subscribing fur the pnper. "
"The hist while baby born in Nelson is seriously sick and grave tears
are entertained as to its recovery,"
"Nelson's first dance was given on
Friday night by Mr. and Mi's. Helm

English Press Does Not Like Lord
Lansdowne's Elevation.
London, Nov. 2. ��� If The Daily Telegraph's announcement bud been a
mere feeler to ascertain the temper of
the public toward Lord Lansdowne's
appointment be would certainly never
have beoome Minister of Foreign Affairs, imt although the appointment
to the Secretaryship has not yet heen
officially confirmed it is accepted on
all sides as a settled thing.
The Standard, which says it has
learned that Lord Selborne, uudei _oc-
lel.uy of State for the Colonies, und
William St. John Ilrodriek, under secretary of State for Foreign Affairs,
will enter the cabinet and that
Charles Thompson Ritchie, piesident
of the Hoard of Trade, will be given a
higher post, says: -m"The appointment
of the Marquis of l.ansdowne to Her
Majesty's secretaryship- Secretary of
State for Foreign Affairs���is un almost Inconceivable blunder. He bus
neither thoj character, qualifications
nor experience feu- such a position.
The only plausible excuse for the appointment is thnt l.ord_ Salisbury
will still control the Foreign Orlico
while l,o!'il*l.ansclo\vne relieves him^of
his routine  duties.   '
The Daily. Mail says: "If Lord
l.ansdowne is appointed Foreign Secretary and some other gentleman of
agreeable manners is made First
Lord of the Admiralty tho country
may lament a great opportunity lost
forever."
The Daily Chronicle says: "Wo
may well ask whether the country
would havo voted quite so 'khuki'
had it known of this appointment beforehand. "
The Daily News says: "It is presumably the explanation of the control in foreign affairs which would
have been impossible if Mr. chamberlain had heen appointed. Iu fact Lord
Salisbury will still ho Foreign Minister with l.ansdowiic as his clerk."

MISLEADING   PLEDGES,
There are few questions that give
greater uneasiness to Parliamentary
candidates than that of prohibition.
They are not as a rule in favor of it.
but they lack the courage to say so.
In many of tbe constituencies there
are prohibitionists in considerable
numbers, and their votes count. They
have a habit, too, of putting- tlie cpies-
tion squarely to tbe candidate. If be
has the courage of his convictions and
says that be does not believe in prohibition, bo loses their votes. Usually
he lias not the courage of his convictions, but returns as answer something that is taken ns n pledge to sup-
poit that extreme remedy for the cure
of intemperance.
An obscure judgment of the .ludie-
inl Committee of the Imperial Privy
Council affords bun a large measure
of relief. It has been doubtful whether the power to prohibit lies with the
Provinces or with the Dominion. Incidentally the question was raised in
n ense that found its way to the Privy
Council, and as far as tne judgment
of that supreme authority dealt with
tlie matter it was understood that the
Provinces had no power in tbe premises. That was satisfactory to the
prohibitionists, who are content to
look to the federal authority for action. And it brings the question face
to face with the candidates. Hut
they escape by saying that in the second largest Province the result of the
plebiscite was against prohibition,
and a general measure therefore would
be injudicious, for tbe reason that the
law could not be enforced in a community in which the sentiment is
hostile. This is possibly true, although there is something curious in
professing prohibitionists like Mr.
Sifton pleading it in excuse for inaction.
The averag. candidate, however.
can advance it with some effect, lie
can declare, and for the most part
does, that he is an ardent prohibitionist and would lay down his life for it;
nothing in the world would give him
greater pleasure, if elected to Parliament, than to support a Prohibition
Act. Hut what would be the good?
QuebCO could not be excluded in
measure of the kind, and Quebec has
pronounced against it. Hut still something may be done, he hastens to assure his dear temperance friends. A
Federal measure is out of the question, it is true, but lie is willing to
give the Provinces the authority to
deal witll the question on their own
account. Happy thought,and in scores
of the constituencies the candidates
are acting upon it. Mr. Sifton is doing so in bis case. And the strange
thing is that the alternative is acci pt-
ed as satisfactory. I low can the
Dominion Parliament enlarge or contract the powers of tin- Provinces'.'
That is a matter that is settled by our
Federal constitution, the liritisli
North America Act. Iu that Act the
powers of th�� Provinces are defined,
and as they cannot he talon   away by
the Federal Parliament it is only tea
scmalilc to suppose that neither can it
enlarge' tliein. For any extension of
tlie Provincial jurisdiction wo shall
have to go to the Imperial Parliament, the source of all authority
These pledges, therefore, to get over
the difficulty by giving the Provincei
power to legislate on the subject arc
merely so much waste sound.
will, for it is the ruling peculiarity
of the Premier's to break with his
own principles and take up with something new. ^^^
What fools the electors are supposed
tube! Over in Victoria tbe Government paper is urging them to vote for
Drury and Riley and thus secure the
Mint for that city. In Vancouver
the cry is "Maxwell and the Mint.''
Doth places, it seems, arc to get it, if
they only return the (lovernment candidate. Why not "Galliher and the
Mint"'.'	
A partial explanation of the present
abominable mail service in Southern
Hritish Columbia will probably be
found in the fact that the mails are
overburdened with franked campaign
matter which managers for the Government are sending out by the ton.
It can almost be said that Ministers
have taken complete possession of the
service, und are using it for the benefit of their candidates ill all parts of
the country. And the people pay to
maintain it.
Among tlie changing    policies taken
up by   Sir   Wilfrid  Laurier    was   om
advocating a Parliamentary federation
of the Empire, tinder   which    the Colonies would he taxed at  West minster.
It was in    relation   to   this   that   Sir
Charles Tupper said tlie   Premier   was
too   liritisli for him.    And so   say all
of ns.    The Dominion of   Canada and
the Commonwealth of  Australia   have
no Intention of going back to the days
of Irresponsible government, and having   their   affairs    administered   for
them from Downing   Street.    That   is
a policy that   is too   English for   men
accustomed  to  self-government.   Por
the moment, howevei, it   tickled   the
fancy   of   the shallow Sir WilfiId.    If
ho has  not already discarded  it be
Discussing public affairs with members of the (ireenwood Board of
Trade,Mr. Turner said that it was the
intention of tbe (lovernment to submit at the next meeting of the Legislature a comprehensive scheme of railway construction, lie spoke particularly of an extension to Pcnticton, as
necessary to put tlie Shuswap and
Okanogan on a paying basis, and thus
relieve the Province of the guaranteed
interest it is now paying under agreement with that company.

A (iooil Ledge Struck in the Bonanza
Last Week.

Messrs. MoNameo and Comslo.k, contractors nn tli" Bonanza, report tlmt
i��� tho drift from tlio bottom of tlio
ghaft for the west ledge, where they
.re. now working, the character of
the rock is changing, and they expoot
to strike the lead at any time. For several fed the rook has been impregnated with iron pyrities, nnd now n Utile copper is oomlng in. Development

tho west ledge is tapped at depth,

This belief is based on the develop-
men! already done on other parts of
this ledge, It is anticipated that by
the lime the snow falls the Bonanza
will he. on the list of shipping mines
of this district. The last suroplos
taken from the west drift of Ine
Earthquake, in whloh there is four
feet of clean ore, gives values of 820
in gold and copper, and a small
amount of silver,and from the bottom
of the 85-foot shaft, samples run
813.50 in gold, 7X per cent, copper,
ami four ounces in silver. The tace
of the east drift, which has three feet
of ore. assays SIS in all values. Work
is to he begun ut once in the drift
from the bottom of tho No. 2 winze,
ut a vertical depth of 1011 feet. The
management of the Earthquake have
arranged with the representative of
the Diamond Drill Company, who is
now in the eity, for 1,000 feet of Diamond Drill prospecting. The work is
to begin as soon as the machinery can
he placed on the ground. It is reported today on reliable authority, that
an Important strike has been made
on "the Golden Eagle, adjoining the
Earthquake. In the drift no feet from
the shaft, a crosscut has heen started
to determine the width of the lead,
and seven feet of ore has been crosscut
without striking the second wall.
This ore is all of shipping   quality.
R. A. Ilrown. superintendent of the
Sunset mine in the Similkameen district, has returned from the mine,and
reports that arrangements are completed for working all winter on the
property. Work in the old shaft has
been suspended after Blnklng 100 feet
and running 120 feet of crosscuts
without finding walls for tlie ore deposit. It is now the intention to sink
u double compartment shaft to a depth
of 5110 feet. This will lie the main
working shaft of the mine. This
shaft will be sunk in a dyke of por-
phyretio quartz, which runs laterally
through the deposit of copper ore,
nnd in which the work can be clone
much more cheaply than in the copper. At .",110 feet of depth crosscuts
will l)d run to the copper, and then
the work will consist in drifting and
blocking out ore. The mine is at
present equipped with a L3-horse pow.
er steam hoist. The next plant will
bo a 5-drill compressor, with so h. p.
boiler. This will be shipped as soon
as the wagon road from Ivercincos to
Princeton is completed. Ml. Ilrown
says that when he left the mine there
was 20,000 feet of lumber on the
round for the erection of shaft houses,
etc., and that 3,000 bushels of charcoal had been burnt and 200 cords of
wood cut, ready for winter. In the
80-foot crosscut from :.".' per cent copper lo 53 per cent. Mr. Drown obtained assays tanging froni :?! , per cent,

Cleveland Reported to Have Said That
He Will lie Elected.
Washington, D. ('., Nov. 2.���Ex-
l'rc.sident Cleveland���"the Hermit of
Princeton"���has at last come out of
his shell and expressed his views regarding the outcome of the Presidential contest to occur next Tuesday.
The cx-Prcsident anticipates a landslide for Mr. Bryan.
lie has so stated to a reporter of
The Philadelphia Times, who interviewed him at Princeton College lust
night, and The Times emphatically
declares the interview to bo genuine,
absolutely authentic, and prints it
this morning.
Politicians of both parties are discussing the announcement of the former President with great avidity���
one side being highly elated, while
the other is decidedly downcast.
While Cleveland declares thut he
will not vote for Bryan, he expresses
the belief that the Democratic leader
will bo elected overwhelmingly.
The announcement will greatly
help the Demooratio cause in the East
and be a corresponding injury to the
Republicans. 'This much is admitted
by prominent Republican leaders ut
the National Capital,
The enthusiasm among the people
which Bryan lias worked up for the
Democratic ticket in the State of Now
York is deemed to be certain to result
in a sweeping Democratic victory in
that state.
It is nol. doubted by Mr. Bryan's
supporters in the East that New .ler-
Boy will fall into line with Now Y'ork
and Maryland. This Btatc, added to

Finlcy   Anderson   Says His   Evidence
Was Perjured,
Louisville, Ky.. Nov,2. -The Louisville Evening Dost prints an affidavit
of Finlcy Anderson, the telegraph
operator upon whose testimony Caleb
Dowers was convicted of complicity iu
the murder of Qovernor Uoebel, in
which Adnerson swears his Btory told
on the stand at Georgetown was perjured.
After telling of a conversation with
Attorney  Camoboll at   Cincinnati  in
connection with the Qoebel case, thu
affidavit continues:
"���1 remained in Cincinnati after
this conversation with Mr. Campbell,
aud some time after Hint Arthur lloe-
bel.in his store upstairs on the fourth
lloor, .when- 1 had gone at his request,
asked   ine if Dowers   lind   not   In   my
presence at Barbourvlllc   in January
said lo me ill Substance   these    words.
referring to William Ooebelt 'They
say ho wears a coat of mail, hut it
won't do him uny good,' or something
similar to thnt.
"1 told Arthur Ooebel that Powers
had never said anything of the sort
in my presence to my hest knowledge.
lie told me to think and see if I could
not remember.    1   could not n tuber
such u remark and I know that Dowers never did make such a rental- or
anything resembling it. in my presence, but being urged by   Arlhiii O	
bel 1 Bnally concluded to state thnt lie
did  make such a  statement and  so
swore upon the trial, which testimony was false."
"Before making my statement to
Campbell, Wharton Golden told me to
make it as strong a;, possible, as thoy
(referring to Campbell and Ooebel |
would take care of me and protect
nie.

Where Those Come From That Are
Eaten in Nelson.
As the result of the immediate district of Nelson not being a fruit producing country, large quantities of
this urticle have to bo imported annually and therefore, the prices on apples and other Bin all fruits nre necessarily higher than they otherwise
would be. The nearest fruit garden
to Nelson, and one which has made
rapid strides to tho front, during the
past two years, and which DOW* produces, if not the largest quantity, the
hest apples grown in Canada oi the
l'nited States, is-thal.of the Okauagan
country.
It has boon ascertained from the
local dealers In this product that but
a small quantity of tho apples whieh
are consumed In this city are brought
from Okauagan, but. on the other
hand BO per cent, are Imported from
the fruit gardens of the State of
Washington. Owing to tho situation
of Nelson to the fruit districts of the
west, upplcs can be brought from the
American side and sold tothe epnsnm-
ers here at a lower price than if they
were shipped from the Oknungnn country. This tact is hugely duo to the
transportation rates. The freight
rat.' nn 100 pounds of apples coming
from Spokane, where  largo quantities
of the apples are purchased is B6 cents,
whilo the rale from the Okauagan
district is ii.1 cents per hundred. Of
course the duty on apples coming from
the American side has to be llgnred
in, but as it is only 14 cents on 100
pounds, this quantity of apples can be
laid down heie at a cost of .10 conts.
And, ns apples are grown In much
linger quantities on the American
side, they cun be bought at a much
lower price than they can In the fruit
gardens of British Columbia, where
they are us yet raised In conipaiatlve-
ly small quantities, When the rail
way from the Kootenays to tho coast
is built, Nelson will purchase Canadian apples, hut until that time the
Stule of Washington must supply this
city.

Bonds the True Blue
Copper Mine.
The True Blue copper mine,situated
about three miles from Ivaslo, was
bonded yesterday by Mr. J. C. Drewery, of Kossland, a prominent capitalist and mining promoter. The purchase price is not given out hut it is
said to be a largo sum. Mr, Drewery
was in Nelson today for a few hours
en route to Moyie and from hiin the
ahove information was obtained. Immediately after the papers were drawn
np yesterday a crew of men wore sent
out from Kaslo to repair the trails
and to get things into shape for aotlve
development work at the mine, which
will he carried on vigorously all winter.
The property consists of three
claims, the True Blue, Peacock ami
Copper Queen. It was bonded about
a year ago by the Hall Mines Company for 865,000 and they expended
from 830,000 to 840,000 in developing
it, but werejforced to relinquish the
bond at the time of the difficulties
last summer. During the time they
worked the proporty they did a considerable amount of development.' in
the form of tunneling, shafting nnd
sinking winzes, They ulso made a
shipment of two carloads of ore to
the smelter. One gave an average return of 10 1-10 per cent, copper, while
the other gave an average of 12 2-6
per cent.
The former owners of the property
were .Messrs. .1. Fraser, M. A. Stephenson and Angus Campbell, all of
Kaslo. Mr. .1. Fred'Ritchle, of Kossland, represented the owners in the
negotiations.
In speaking of the property Mr.
Drewry said: "It is one of the hest.
if not the hest, copper properties in
British Columbia." It is .Mr. Drew-
ery's intention to form a new company which will he known as the
True Blue Copper Mines, Limited.
After pushing the development all
winter, and if satisfactory results are
obtained, it is probable that a tramway will he erected in the spring and
shipping will begin,
