The announcement In The Miner of
yesterday telling of the discovery of
��ta���lUlil In the ores of the Venus
mint. was the sole topic of discussion
Bmong the mining men this morning.
Those who have properties on Morning Mountain are elated at the prospect of the large additional value of
their ore and assays are being made
of samples of ore from all of the properties. It i�� believed that the Athabasca ores are as rloli with uranium
as the ores of the Venus and if this
proves to he true the Athabasca will
he a much more valuable property
that it has formerly been considered to
be, Aside from the discovery of gold
in tho hills about Nelson, the discovery made by the Venus people is undoubtedly the most important in the
history of the camp, it doubles the
value of the Venus property at once
niu] makes Morning Mountain, and all
the properties upon it, worth more to
the City of Nelson than anyone ever
hefure believed.
lining to the important discovery of
the rare metal uranium in the ore of
the Venus mine, it is now estimated
that the property is worth double
what it was formerly thought to be
worth. The value of the output of
the mine up to the preaont time has
been 118 per ton and when arrangements are made so that the uranium
can be saved, the output  per ton will
even   more   bitterly than they do Mr
Chamberlain.
be increased to 830 or perhaps $10 pi
ton, even if it costs as high as 9'i per
pound to treat the yellow sand to obtain the uranium. It has been found
that there arc 50 pounds of yellow
sand contained in each ton of ore that
has been treated, and the 50 pounds
of yellow oxide contains six pounds of
uranium,
The directors at Toronto are now
investigating in an effort to ascertain
the best method of treating this oxide. There are two ways of doing it;
to treat it at the property, or concentrate it to a certain extent and then
ship it to reduction works ill the east.
The latter will probably be the method whieh will be adopted. A piece of
ore from the property was examined
at the local olliee this morning and it
was found that it contained large
quantities of the yellow oxide. The
company at the present time has over
18,000 tonB of oro in sight, and with
tho increased value that amount of
ore is worth over 8540,000. This discovery is not only of Importance to
the Venus company, but it is equally
important to the other companies who
own claims on the same mountain. It
is probable that the ore from all the
claims on Morning Mountain will be
treated so as to obtain the uranium,
as it is believed that the yellow oxide
exists in the various veins of the
moil n tain.

Chairman Holt said thut he had
asked President Shaughnessy about
the building of the Lardeau Railroad,
and the President stated that it would
be constructed in tbe near future,
probably meaning next spring.
The question was asked if the K. &
S. road bad been started und it was
found that it had not. It was resolved
to request the Kaslo board to cooperate with the Nelson board in getting the work upon both roads into
the Lardeau started at once.
A vote of thanks was tendered Mr.

The matter of having a telephone
line built to Slocan was discussed and
every means will be taken to induce
the telephone, company to proceed
witli the work, as it is thought that
it will be a great benefit to the merchants of Nelson.

was' successful in getting a charter

Superintendent Troup, when seen
this morning by The Miner, said he
knew nothing whatever of any such
move on the part of the C. P. It. If
the company had commenced a survey
south of the international boundary
line he believed he would have known
of it and he was not therefore, inclined to credit the dispatch from
Nelson, Wash., as truthful. There
might, however, be something hi it.

(SPECIAL to 'nil': MINOR.)
Victoria, B. C, Oct. 11.���Mr. P.. P.
Bremner, Dominion labor commissioner, and Ralph Smith, M. P. P., secretary of the Miners' Association, had
a conference with iloii. James Duns-
muir in regard to tlie alleged grievance of the 3.1 Scotch miners who refused to go to work at the Union
mine on the ground that the conditions were not such as had been represented to them before their departure
from Scotland. The conference was
a satisfactory one, Mr. Ilunmuir staling that the miners would be paid j-:i
am! that there would be no Chinese
helpers engaged. Hon. James Dnns-
muir denies the statement of the
Scotch miners that $2 a day anil
Chinese helpers wns the condition at
the Union. He says the Scotch miners
were guaranteed (3 a day.
Mr. John llryden has definitely announced that he will not be the Conservative candidate for the Vancouver
Island district at the coming elections
for the Dominion House. Mr. Hrydcn
was unanimously nominated at a convention held in Nanaimo last month,
lie was away at the time and Immediately on his return, stated that be
would not run.
Percy Charleson, nephew of .1. Ii.
Charleson, in charge of ail Canadian
telegraph lines, denies the rumor that
the lines ovcilapped a hundred miles
owing to bail surveying. Mr.Charleson received a letter today from the
Telegraph Creek end, posted at Hazel -
ton, showing that tho two gangs travelling north and south are in comma
mention. Managers Trodden and Ro
Chester, in charge of the respective
ends, are only waiting the command
to join the wires.
There was a good attendance at the
city hall yesterday evening at the
meeting called foi the purpose of discussing the advisability of holding an
agricultural exhibition in Victoria
next year. Those present were unanimously of the opinion that it wns
desirable that an exhibition sliould be
held, providing the transportation
problem could be satisfactorily adjusted, and a strong committee was appointed to arrange the preliminary
details.
The Colonist publishes ft sensational
stcry tothe effect that it has informa
tion that an effort is being made be
cause of jealou ly among officials to
remove tho detachment of Royal Canadian Infantry stationed here under
Colonel McKay. It seems that Colonel
Grant who commands the Imperial
troops, has asked for the regiment's
removal because he feels the fact, that
the Canadians outwitted the troops
under his command at the recent mobilization maneouvers and captured
Rod Hill.
London, Oct. 11.���There was a sen
sational scene at yesterday's meeting
of the shareholders of the Grand Trunk
Railway of Canada, between Sir
Charles Rivers Wilson, president of
the company, and Sir Henry Tyler,
former president. Sir Charles Wilson,
in addressing the meeting, detailed
the improvements made in the line,
congratulating the shareholders on
the lnorease in revenues, dilated on
the rise in the cost of material and in
the rates of wages, and explained the
resolution of the day which provided
for tlie reorganization of the Chicago
Grand Trunk by the Canadian Company. Aftei outlying the proposition,
Sir Charles said be had received a letter from Sir Henry W. Tyler, ex-
president, expressing disapproval of
tlie reorganisation, and asking that
the letter be read before the meeting.
White with passion, Sir Charles, declared that the vllllany employed just-
ilicd him m    putting the letter in the

fire. The president of the road continued his denunciation of the former
president until the audience rose, crying. 'Put it in the lire," "Burn it,"
������Shanie."
There was a scene of great disorder
and then there arose a cry, "Tyler is
here." In a moment the venerable
figure of ex-President Tyler was seen
walking toward the directors'rostrum.
As soon as Sir Charles Rivers Wilson
recovered   his composure, he said:
"Tyler, stand up, you, who have
villlfied us, nnd repeat before us all
the charges you have made."
Cheers mingled with groans greeted
Sir Henry W. Tyler, who maintainil
that the Chicago Grand Trunk was
owned and controlled by the Canadian
Grand Trunk, and that therefore the
directors were making false pretenses
when they represented the reorganization as a transaction between two independent concerns,
Continuing, Sir Henry asserted that
the scheme involved the repudiation
by President Wilson of the Chicago
second mortgage bonds, which he asserted were cut down from 5 lo 4 per
cent.
"lie honest," shouted Sir Henry
Tyler.    "Don't repudiate them."
Amid a roar of hisses and jeers the
voice of Sir Henry was drowned but
be continued waving his arms aud
shouting Inaudible charges against
Sir Charles, who stood up and in
equally fierce language absolutely denied Sir Henry's allegations and
abused his administration.
Half the time Sir Henry was on his
feel endeavoring to interrupt and the
extraordinary spectacle was presented
of the president and ex-president of ft
great railway standing before a howl
ing audience, both of them shouting
at once and neither Speaker being audible. It was only when several persons stepped forward with the intention of hustling Sir Henry Tyler out
of   the room thut  he ceased speaking.
The meeting then by a large major-
Ilelville, Ont., Oct. 11.���Premier R.
P. Roblin, of Manitoba, was interviewed here a few days ago and
makes some interesting comments in
regard tothe political situation in the
West:
"What about politics in Manitoba'.'"
asked the newspaper man.
"The political pot was boiling
merrily when I left," said Mr. Roblin. "The Conservative party is prepared for the fight, and are confident
of victory They have ill Hon. John
Macdonahl a leader for the west who
has never suffered a political defeat,
and having, at present, a united party, good lieutenants as well as a good
ctuse, they confidently look for a
continuation of their recent success
es."
"Vou feel peitty suro of getting a
majority for Sir Charles Tupper?"
asked the newspaper man.
"Well," said Mr Roblin, "we certainly will increase tho Conservative
representation from the west. That
is admitted by even our opponents."
"What is Hugh John going to do to
Sifton in Brandon?" asked the scribe.
"Well," said Mr. Roblin, "Mr.
Sifton is a man of very considerable
energy, he has a very perfect organization, he has all the Implements of
war and will make a determined
fight, but Hugh John can oppose to
Sifton his personal popularity, his
consistency in public life, in so far as
his pledges to the public are concerned, and these make him an ideal candidate, so much so that those in a position to know, believe he will win.
Mr. Sifton is personally a gentleman,
yet his record, or rather the record of
his party, does not commend itself to
the people of Manitoba. The Liberals have broken the promises they
made to the people of the west, ami
the latter will show their disapproval
when they east their ballots."
"Will you remain long in Belleville?1 asked the newspaper man.
"Just a day or two," was the reply.
"I shall then visit my father in
Sophiasburg, P. E. I., and then go
west again."
"That is," said the reporter, "provided your presence is not required
sooner. "
"Yes," said Mr. Roblin, with a
smile, "if dissolution takes place in
the meantime my visit might lie cut
short. I may Bay that 1 have not yet
been sworn in as Premier as Hon. Mr.
Maodonald will not resign till the
writs for the Dominion election are
issued. Ho is retaining his position
at the unanimous request of the patty, including myself. As to the formation of the. new cabinet, 1 may say
that everything will be accepted just
as Hon. Mr. Macdonahl leaves It.
There will   be no changes, at present,
at least, except such   as   the   law   requires. "
"How do you like Manitoba'.'" asked the reporter, as he reached for his
hat.
"Finest spot in the world except
the Hay of Qlltnte district," said Mr.
Roblin, with a laugh. "Of course you
kno,v there is no place to equal
that," and he went back to a party
of prominent gentlemen who were
waiting for him.
Mr. Houston is due to rear up and
let out another howl. Some one in
the city has had the audacity to send
the following to The Rossland Miner
without first submitting it to tho
censor:
Nelson, Oct. 10. ���(Special).���There
is every indication that the Liberals
here will leave no stone unturned to
secure if possible the retirement of
the labor candidate. From an authoritative source it is learned that negotiations are about to be entered into
with a view to Mr. Foley's retirement
in Mr. Galllher'B interest. The Liberals feel that unless Mr. Foley retires their chances are almost hopeless
and the leaders in Nelson are iu communication with those in Rossland
who take the same view. On the other
hand, there is strong opposition
among the labor people to any letir-
ing movement. Mr. Wilks, if lukewarm, is concealing his feelings, and
seems to think that Mr. Foley hat, a
fair Hghti.g chance. It is stated that
Wilks favors the resignation of Smith
Curtis from tbe Provincial Legislature, and bis acceptance of the nomination for Ottawa. In this event
Wilks would contest the vacancy for
Victoria. As Air. Curtis will not consent to this, the Nelson Liberals now
look to him to get Mr. Foley out of the
way. The situation is becoming complicated, and many labor leaders
openly express their disapproval of
the proposed deal, and are indignant
that anything should be done whieh
will be interpreted outside as a retreat on their part. They declare that
having put their hand to the plough,
they will not turn back.
Hereafter all poltieal writers in the
Yale - Kootenay - Cariboo district,
whether Liberal or Conservative, must
first submit the matter prepared for
publication to Censor Houston. The
position is one that has come to Mr.
Houston through self-appointment,
and his friends believe he will till it
acceptably. He can be found at the
electric light dam,if you have some
copy which you desire to pass through
his bauds.

TIIK MINERAL TAX.
The Nelson Hoard of Trade is to
take up the question of the mineral
tax. If every Hoard of Trade In every
mining region of the Province, and,
Indeed, iu the Province itself, were to
do the same and pass judgment on
the expediency of it, a great public
Berviee would be rendered. Wheat is
not moie the great staple on which
the prosperity of Manitoba nnd the
Territories is based than is the mining industry in Hritish Columbia.
Whatever affects that industry affects
���very man, woman and child in it.
The mineral tax docs affect it, and
injuriously. It is not so much tho
amount of the tax, which in mauy
cases is considerable enough, but the
discouragement which the tax is
bound to cause. A mino that is paying a handsome dividend to the owners can stand a little Government robbery, but its ability to do this is no
excuse fo, the robbery itself. The
Robin Good of romance is said to
ha*'e taken from the rich and to have
been good to the poor, but even that
does not excuse his methods. If taxes
are to be levied on the principle that
those who have must be mndu to disgorge, without regard to those other
considerations which are supposed to
ooinmend taxation as an quitable system for the provision of tho public
needs, wo shall have to begin to revise
our views of the question.
We do not know by what argument
the Government convinced themselves
that to double the old tax on the output of our mines would be a just and
timely measure. Hut we do know
that some of our legislators, whos��
minds are Buffering under the misfortune of being unable to take a broad,
intelligent view of any question, express tho belief that the ability to pay
la excuse enough for any tax. The
mines are rich, they say,and tho owners are making big profits, therefore
put tho screws on them. This is a dishonest principle to go upon, and it is
also an impolitic one. There are mines
that are not rich, but whose owners
are struggling to make them so; is it
wise to add to the burdens inseparable from development'.1 The ] oli _ of
the country should rather be to encourage mining in every way possible. If there are obstacles to the industry, they should be removed. It
would be bad policy to make development harder if we were depending on
our own resources; but when wo have
to look abroad for capital it is worse
policy. Capitalists in England will
not be encouraged to invest In a Province that taxes the expenditure necessary to prove that a mine is worth
operating.
The Government will bo wise if they
take np this question again. There is
a right and a just and a sensible side
to it, as thero is to all other questions. And it will not do to remain
blind to it merely to please some mem
hers of whom the best that can be
said is lliat they arc ignorant and
prejudiced. A member of the Hoard
mailn the assertion at the meeting last
night that the Government did not
know bow the Act was working. If
the Government do not know, they
ought to know; it is their business
to know. If they shall take the trouble to ascertain and further to consider the whole question on its merits, it
is probable they may decide that an
increased tax on mineral output is not
the wisest policy to adopt at the present time.
the probable result, but the wise
elector who is earnest in his convictions will leave speculation to otheis
and expend his energies in work. It
is by carrying Individual constituencies that a majority can be secured,
and we do not know any other way
by which it can be accomplished. The
Yale-Cariboo elector who believes the
country would be the better of
a change of Government wi 11
best show his faith by doiug all
in his power to elect Mr. MaeNeill.
If all the electors in all the constituencies will do as much for their candidates, the ultimate majority will
take care of itself.
Many of the newspapers are expending their energies in speculating on
the result in a particular constituency
or in the Dominion. This Province
will return so many Liberals and so
many Conservatives; in that Province
the Liberals (or Conservatives, as the
case mny be) will be smashed to
smithereens, and the other Provinces
will do this and do that. A little figuring after this fashion will give a Government or an Opposition victory, according to the political bias of the
very worthy gentleman who happens
to be making   the forecast.    It   is   no
~ Our excellent contemporary, The
Kamloops Inland Sentinel, is good
enough to say that it has no objection
to The Miller's desire to see Sir
Charles Tupper reinstated in olliee.
We were a little fearful of having or
expressing a preference in the matter,
but with this encouragement from
The Sentinel we pluck up courage and
are extremely obliged for our contemporary's forbearance.
Some weeks ago, while the elections
wero being spoken of, Mr. Joseph
Martin was to do wonderful things
for the Liberal party in this Province,
having rehabilitated himself by membership in a Vancouver Liberal Association. Now that the elections are
on, it would require a Pinkerton detective to discover his whereabouts.

RHODES RECTEVES   OVATION.
Cape Town,; Oct. 11.���Mr. Cecil
Rhodes received an ovation Wednesday when he assumed the presidency of
the Congress of the youth African
League. During the oourse of his
address, he attributed the South African war to tho mugwumps, and said
but for them Mr. Kruger would never
have dared to send an ultimatum to
Great Britain, Generally speaking
Mr. Khodes was eoneilitory in his
remarks. He declared that now that
"Krugerism had vanished" Great
Britain would establish a libel al government, which would do everything
possible to unito the interests of
South Africa with those of the Empire." Mr. Rhodes also said there
was no desire "to plaster Rhodesia on
Cape Colony" intimating that it was
"likely to be the other way." Hut he
thought Rhodesia would bo one of the
federated states with great opportunities for expansion in the direction of
the Congo.

BRILLIANT
Lord    Charles   Beresford's
Strategy In British Sham
Battle.
N���w .nrk, Oct. 11.-A dispatch to
the Journal from London says:
l���uil Charles Beresford has amazed
the world by tbo brilliant strategy by
which hi) won the sham battle in the
reoent manouvers of the British Beet
in the Mediterranean. Ills tactics
have heen pronounced the elevorest iu
naval annals. The fleet was divided
Into two parts, Ileresford in command
of one and Admiral Fisher of the
other. Beresford was blockaded in the
port of Mytllene by torpedo bouts and
fishers' licet was hovering about and
lying in wait outside.
' Oeresford's task was to coal his
fleet, get out of the harbor nnd attack
Fisher. It should ho remembered that
Lord Charles has never been an enthusiast, on the subject of torpedo boats.
In fact he has repeatedly described its
efflclenoy as an offensive craft. It is
only a few years ago that, speaking
in the House of Commons on a naval
appropriation hill, he asked the admiralty to furnish an old warship,armed
soil under his directions, of whieh he
would take command with a volunteer
crew raised by himself and defend it
successfully against the attacks of any
number of torpedo boats.
His task at Mytllene was therefore,
precisely l�� Ills liking. By putting
lights on launches so as to resemble
ships in Hit' darkness he decoyed the
torpedo boats away on a false trail
anil, with every light on his own
warship out. he slipped away to sea
without a vessel touched. Having
ilniie this, ho misled Fisher's scouts
hy false signals and caught the hostile
Beet entirely unprepared off the l.em-
iius.
Fisher's squadron was steering in
parallel columns and Ileresford maneuvered his ships so skillfully that
the admiral had no opportunity to
change this formation or to do anything but clear decks for Instant allien.
Beresford ran his ships in single
file right in between the lines enalilng
liiiu to tight with both broadsides,
while each of Fisher's vessels could
use hut one.
The victory was so complete and
overwhelming that the umpire awarded it on the spot to the dashing hero
of the Alexandria bombardment who
inn the cordon in right under the
1,'iius of the Egyptian fort and battled
it to atoms at eloBe range.
Ileresford'h daring seamanship and
resourceful tricks in these manouvers
arc a startling contrast to the old
methods, and stamp him as the cleverest commander in the Hritish navy.
NO MORE INSULTS.
I'aris, Oct. 11.���The public prosecutor has issued instructions to   the   police to  arrest   summarily any persons
who publicly utter insults against tin
president.   The Government join mils
contend that the measure was needed
as the tone of political discussion has
become disgraceful.
SOLDIERS' HOME BURNS,
lloise, Idaho, Oet. 11.���The Idaho
soldiers' home was destroyed by fire
lust night, entailing a loss of $40,000.
There were 800 inmates. Thomas
Hays was suffocated in his room.
The old men will be housed in buildings in the town, some being taken to
the state house. The house was erected in isu;i.
HOW HE FELT ABOUT IT.
awhile ago, one of  them  said, 'Oh,
shoot the baby.' "
, " 'Oh, did he." Baid the father raising ins eyebrows after the manner of
some people expressing surprise or
resentment or some other emotion,
Yes, he did,' repeated the fond
mother,
" 'And what did you Bay to that'."
lie inquired with a half smile.
" 'What could 1 Bay?' she asked,
anger showing in her face,
'Really, don't know, my dear,'
hesitated her husband, 'but I thought
possibly you might have said you
didn't have any gun.'
"She couldn't Bay a words she
didn't try to; .she just looked at him
In speechless astonishment and went
outof the room."���Washington Star.
Acclimatisation,��� Dr, Manson, the
malaria expert,believes that acclimatization, iibiiul which so much is beard
in India and tropical countries generally, depends on "experience, education, und an intelligent adaptation
ol habits," rather than on any actual
change In tho physiological condition
of the body. It will be admitted by
every one who has lived any length of
time iu the tropics that recklessness
and carelessness are characteristic of
the new arrival in any hot country,
"lie does not think much of exposing
himself lo the sun, the rain, and the
wind; the old resident is very chary
of going out without his sun hat and
his white umbrella. The new-comer
may look upon these precautions as
signs of effeminacy. They are not so.
Experience has told the old resident
that neglect means an attack of fever.
The new-comer sits up late, eats,
drinks, and smokes ns iu Europe.
The old resident goes to bed betimes
and eats, drinks, and smokes in moderation, "

NEWS OF j
THE MINES |
I). F. Stroeheck of Ainsworth, II.
0.| is in the city,says the Spokesman-
Review. Few men are as competent
to speak of the Hot Springs crimp on
Kootenay lake, the pioneer mining
camp of Kootenay, "Ainsworth is all
right," lie said yesterday. "The. operations of the English company
which went in there recently have
given an impetus to mining in the
section. The Knglish company is the
llighland-Kooteiiay (B. C.) Mining
Company. The company has continued the wagon road up to its properties, several acres of laud have been
cleared and the erection of buildings
started. One big building was up
when 1 left. A t'i>0-ton concentrator
is now being put in. The big Stevenson tunnel is in about 1,160 feet. It
bus got to go about 200 more feet to
tap the ledge. The Tariff when 1
came away was closed down, but it is
expected to start up again in a few
days. A la.-ge quantity of ore has been
blocked out ready for shipment. A
number of properties are liguring on
starting up shortly. One of these is
the Rand, a Minneapolis company.
The King Solomon's Mining Company, an Ohio concern, has 75 men at
work on Woodbury Creek. It is putting in four power drills. Tne men
work three eight.-hour shifts. The
company is overhauling the mill aud
expects to start it shortly. The King
Solomon company, which has nearly
the same name, is a Spokane corporation, of which Dr. Windgate is manager. It is to start next week on its
property at Loon Lake. The outlook
for Ainsworth District is bright.1
��� ���   ���
The dividend recently declared by
the company controlling the Athabasca property is doing much to strengthen confidence in this mining district.
Evidence of this is being shown every
day by the increase in the number of
capitalists who are inquiring after
properties in the Nelson mining district. Owing to this more interest is
being taken in mining,
see
According to The New Denver
Ledge, George Qurd has bonded the
Kaslo group for a Toronto company.
This group is situated close to Cody
and work will be pushed on it all
winter. II. B, Perks is superintendent. The same company may acquire
a property on the north fork of Carpenter Creek.

THE  HEYWOOD COMPANY.
The Benefit For the Fire Department
a (treat Success.
The performance of the Alba lleywood Company, which was given at
the Opera House last night under the
auspices of the Fire Department for
the benellt of their benevolent fund,
wns a great success as a snug sum
was added tn the fund, the Opera
House being crowded by an enUiusi-
astlc audience. The performance Itself, while of a novel character, was a
thoroughly enjoyable one, as each
member of the company was an artist.
Mr. Ileywood's impersonal ions made
a decided hit and his versatility was
remarkable.     The    reoltatlons  with
which he begun the programme were
weil received, but the impersonation
of an eldery lady who told her bearers
of her contempt of Ihe "new tangled
church music" was the best of all.
Ab ii piece of character work It was
inimitable.     As   "Dennis   Mudil,  the
Pessimist," and in his Chinese Impersonation he was also clever. Miss Emi-
lie Cole, who bus a charming soprano
voice, sang the "Magic Song" as her
opening number. Her voice is a clear,
BWCet one and made an excellent impression upon her hearers. Later she
sang the " Phillauien Walt/. Song," hy
Vanderpoel, and as  an enure gave the
"Last  Hi si of Bummer," In  which
number she was al her best, rendering
the old biilliul with great feeling and
expression. Miss Cert rude Munroe,
who Is also a newcomer here, played
a "Concerto" by He Berlot, upon the
violin in a manner that showed her
complete knowledge of Hie Instrument
The number was excellently rendered,
Miss Monroe's teobnlque and expression   showing a careful  training.    As

an onoo.ee she played an old soutborn
air "The Suwanee River," and showed her ability to make a simple tune
as elfective as the   more classical one.
Mr. Gustavo Ulricb is to be highly
praised for his 'cello playing, "The
Spinning Wheel1' by Popper, was a
gem and the "Spanish Dance" was
equally well played. Mr. Ulricb has
an excellent command of the 'cello
and plays with a depth ot feeling.
His work throughout was perfect and
thoroughly charmed an audience of
music lovers.
In view of Inst night's performance
Mr. lleywood has decided to play a
return date here on the 23rd of this
month. Those who were not at the
Opera House last night sliould not
miss this opportunity of seeing one of
the best performances that has been
given here tliis   siason.

G.C. Hodge, district superintendent
of the Kootenay Lake Telephone Company, was seen by a Miner representative this morning, and was asked concerning the proposition of constructing a line from Nelson to Slocan, as
asked by the Nelson Board of Trade.
Mr. Hodge said it was a matter that
would have to be looked after by the
officials of the company at the head
otllcc ut Vancouver. The proposition
is now under consideration by the
officials but as they have been making
many improvements this year it is
probable that nothing will be done
toward building the line this season.
If tho promoters of the scheme would
guarantee sufficient business, there
would be no hesitation on the part of
the company and the line would undoubtedly be constructed at once. To
build a line over that section would
incur a great expense, and with only
a litte business in view there will he
some difficulty iu getting a line, it
has been suggested to the company to
build a tree line, so ns to keep expenses down. The company will not
do this, us such lines cause endless
trouble.
