Tupper left here today for Hritish Co-
luinhia, where  he  will address meetings in the interest of the Conservative candidates   in   Yale-Cariboo  and
Fllurrurd constituencies.  Prior to leav-
t ing for the CouBt, he declined   be   in-
t crviewed.

Winnipeg, Nov. 9.���In I'rovencher,
Hertrand, Liberal,is elected by 13 majority ; Marquette is still in doubt,
but Roche, Conservative Is likely elected. Asslnaboia East is claimed by
Douglas, Liberal, by 50 majority. In
Selkirk, McCreary, Liberal, and llaslam, Conservative, area tie, with several places on Lake Winnipeg to hear
from which will likely give McCreary

Toronto, Nov. 9.���The Mail and Em
pire's St. John, N. B., correspondent
says Sir Charles and Sir llibbert Tupper had a short conversation with
Hon. Mr. Foster yesterday, during
which the leader expressed a desire to
consult his friends before deciding his
future course, but said he would prefer to retire from active politics and
take a rest. Mr. Foster is also understood to have expressed a desire to retire and enjoy the freodom of private
life, if he cau be allowed to do it, but
expresses willingness to lend a hand
anywhere he can be of use.
Quebec, Que., Nov. 9.���Sir Wilfrid
Laurier remained here all day yesterday und was made the recipient of
many congratulations from all over
the Dominion. When asked lor an
interview regarding the result the
Premier declined to talk at present,
lle left for the west last night.
Kingston, Ont., Nov. 9.���A recount
will probably be asked for In Lennox
County by the Liberals. It has beon
found that somo 78 votes cast for Dr.
Leonard, Liberal candidate, were
thrown out because they were marked
opposite the line with the words:
"In the Elootoral District of Lennox," the votors evidently confounding the name of the county with that
of the candidate.
Bowmanvllle, Nov. 9.���The Liberals of WeBt Durham were somewhat
premature in colebrating the election
of It. Beith, on Wednesday night. The
corrected returns give Thornton, Independent Conservative^ majority.
New Westminster, Nov. 9.���Final
returns are Morrison, Liberal, 1,774;
Dewdney, Conservative, 1,033.
The political situation in the Yale-
Cariboo district at the present time
Is, to Hay the least, somewhat peculiar.    The friends of  Mr. W. A. dalli
ance, but incline to trie belief that
many Canadians who would otherwise
have supported Galliher will resent
the domination of the French-Canadians by coming out in support of McNeill. That many in Nelson will do
this there seems to be little doubt.
Wherever politics are talked this racial feeling seems to he uppermost in
the minds of all and it is a feeling
that will grow more intense as election day in this   district   approaches.
The talk of substituting either Sir
Charles Tupper or Hon. Geo. E. Foster, for Mr. MaeNeill in Yale-Cariboo
does not seem to meet with the approval of those who are conducting Mr,
MacNcill's campaign here. While
they have had no word directly from
Mr. MacNcill they expect their candidate to stay in the field and will redouble their efforts in his behalf. If
they found an inclination on his part
to withdraw there appears to be i
feeling among the Nelson Conservatives in favor of Mayor Goodeve, of
Kossland, rather than in favor of any
There has heen some talk���among
opponents of tho Conservative party���
of Mr. MacNcill dropping out entirely
and leaving the field to Messis. Foley nnd Gallihcr the people who advocate this believing that the Conservatives would then rally to the support
of Mr. Foley. There seems to be,
however, no foundation tor any statement of this kind.

l'ass where, iu company with Mr. A.
1,. Sifton, M. L. A., of Calgary, a
brother of the lion. Clifford Sifton,
of Hrandon, he will hold a series of
political meetings in the interests of
Mr. Galliher. They will open with a
meeting at Fernie tomorrow night
and after that they will hold meetings at Cranbrook, Fort Steele and

Body of a Young Woman Found Near
Leavenworth, Kan, Nov. 9.���The
dead body'of Pearl Forbes, aged 20
years, was found in a ravine near her
home in this city this morning.
Marks on her throat indicated she had
been murdered by strangulation. The
surroundings gave evidence of a terrible struggle. Miss Forbes, who was
of good family, had visited her married sister, a short distance from the
Forbes residence, yesterday afternoon,
starting for her home at li o'clock ill
the evening. As far as can bo learned
that was the last ever seen of her
alive. There is no clue to the murderer. Feeling over tlie affair is intense
and a lynching would doubtless result
If the murderer was captured soon.
Nome Mun Can Not Get Away From
the Officers.
San Francisco, Nov. 9.���Alexander
McKenzie, the receiver of many Cape
Nome mining properties in litigation
before Judge Noyes.was in the circuit
court of appeals yesterday on a charge
of contempt of court. The matter
came up on application to admit the
offending receiver to bail, pending a
hearing in his case. A large number
of attorneys representing Nome clients
were present in court. Judge Gilbert,
Morrow and De Haven heard the application. After some consideration
Judge Gilbert announced that the
court would admit the defendant to
bail in the cases that had not been appealed to the United States Supreme
Court. The Court of Appeals, however, could not act in the ease of Robert Chippes, which was before the Supreme Court of the United States, and
a stay of proceedings was granted. In
the other cases the bail was made $500
on the first and McKenzie released on
his own recognizance in the others.
He will remain in the custody of the
mBrshall, however, until an appeal
that he be released be made to the Supreme Court.

Rome, Nov. 9. ���The re-election of
President McKinley is regarded here
as a victory for Imperialistic tendencies, but aB moro advantageous to
Europe than threatening. Somo of
the newspapers refer to Mr. McKinley's personally sympathetic attitude
toward Italy, but otheis are less appreciative. The Obseivatrio Romano

and Managers.
New   York,   Nov.   9.���A special   to
The Herald from Washington says: As
result of the continuance in power
of President McKinley and Sir Wilfrid Laurier,it is expected that another attempt will shortly be made to
bring about a complete settlement of
the questions in dispute witll Canada.
Officials of the Administration say
that the President and Secretary Hay
would be glad to have the questions
disposed of, but it is felt here that
Canada should make the preliminary
move, looking to the reconsideration.
The Alaskan Boundary line has only
been temporarily determined, and the
President would prefer that it bo finally and forever fixed. Special Reciprocity Commissioner Kasson is extremely anxious to negotiate a reciprocity treaty witli Great Britain relating to Canada, because such a
treaty will settle many points affecting the products of the two countries
and will be mutually beneficial. The
fisheries question is also likely to bo a
source of trouble,and it is deemed important that it should be terminated
in a manner satisfactory to both na-
tioa.., Officials of the navy are especially desirous that the two countries
shall determine the size of the naval
force each will maintain on the Great
Several years ago Congress authoris-
ed the construction of a gunboat for
the lakes,which the Board of Construction prepared* for the design for the

for the vessel be not uwurded.

Madrid, Nov. 9.���Newspapers here
of ull shades of opinion express regret
over the re-election of President McKinley. Their sympathies with Mr.
Bryan weie as emphatic as their pleasure when it was reported that the
United States was meeting with reverses and difficulties in tho Philippines. Several of the papers declare
that Mr. McKinley's triumph, following the victory of Imperialism iu
Great Britain,is a menace to weak nations.
New York, Nov. 9.���The German

The Queen Bess Proprietary Company, which is now operating tho
Queen Bess property, about two miles
from Sandon, has bonded the SUverlte group of six claims which adjoins
its present property. The bonding
price, although a large sum, has not
been given out. The first payment on
the bond was made during the first of
tho week.
Mr. E. R. Woakes, consulting engineer of the Duncan MineB, Limited,
returned from the property last
evening and when asked as to the report stated that It was true. He said
that considerable development in the
form of tunnelling had been done upon
the SUverlte group aud that the property had shown up well. The property is situated on the same ridge as
the well known Payne mine property,
but is on the opposite slope. The
property is a silver-lead proposition
and the workings have opened up the
same leuds that have been followed in
the workings of the Payne. It iB not
likely that the company will do any
worn upon the Bilverite group this
year but early next spring its workings will again be opened up, and development work will be pushed vigorously.
The owners were J.Cory, John Eraser and A. C. Allen, all of Sandon.

Our good friends of London are a
wise lot, but they permit themselves
to become very stupid at times. The
Daily News is throwing up its hat in
delight at the triumph of the Dominion Oovernment. This is not so much
because the Government and the party
at its back are Liberal, as The Daily
News is, but because of Sir Wilfrid
Lauder's eloquent and impassioned
Imperialism. In this respect it is
not more gushing, or more foolish,
than many of its contemporaries. The
Westminster Gazette is even more extravagant in its rejoicing, and The
Times even has been patting our
Premier on the back and telling him
what a good fellow he is./These newspapers think they nave a complete
understanding of tho situation, but if
they suppose that Sir Wilfrid Laur-
ler's Imperialism is more than empty
sound they fail most miserably in
reading the man's character. There
is nothing earnest or sincere in him,
beyond the desire to cling to orlice
and thus feed his vanity. Mr. George
E. Foster understands him better, lie
says he "is a skin disease, and like
the measles must have its run."
When the London papers get to know
Laurier and Laurierism as they really
are, they will be willing to resign his
preferential tariff for the sake of seeing Canada restored to a condition of
political sanity.
Like the good traders that they are,
the Londoners are pleased with tho
man who gives them a preference in
the Canadian market. Hut that is not
necessarily Imperialism, and they
have no evidence that it was given
out of a genuine Imperial spirit. Sir
Wilfrid is theatrical; he is vain, and
he is ambitious. These are not deadly sins, but they are undersirable in
a person who sets up to rule a nation.
His greatest amhition is to glorify
himself and his race. We can see in
a word or to'o how little he deserves
the reputation of being a true Imperialist. Ho is full of beautiful words,
it is true, but words with him are
cheap. There was political discontent
in 189fl,and he came in on the wave of
it. He succeeded to power after eighteen years of unbroken Conservative
administration,not always of the wisest or best, but fairly satisfactory on
the whole. Throughout the whole of
that period there was domestic harmony. There was no suspicion of
British Canadians warring against
French Canadians, or the French Canadians fearing injustice at the hands
of the majority. The two races lived
together in mutual respect and confidence. Sir Wilfrid Laurier was the
first to introduce discord, which lie
did in connection with the Manitoba
sohool question. He excited racial
prejudices, and during his lirst term
these grew in intensity, lle and his
Heutenants did everything possible
to fan the flume. Mr. Tarte, a .Minister of the Crown, went sailing up and
down tho St. Lawrence, flying the
French flag on a (Jovernmciit vessel.
Ho took pains to declare that lie was
more French than Hritish. He was
sent to I'aris.and immediately became
more French than tho Parisians. He
played with all his strength and ingenuity to the French of Quebec,
while the Premier looked on applauding and encouraging, and as occasion
offered taking a French turn on his
own account. Between them they
worked the French Canadians into a
passion, and the other day they returned from the elections with almost
a solid support   from   that   Province.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier gave a preferential tariff which pleases the English
trader, but   he   has  also   arrayed the
Canadian people   Into   two   hostile
camps. We were at pence before; now
there, is strife, lie has raised a spirit
of evil which it will require years
of   patient,    forbearing,   conciliatory
management  to lay.   That  is what
Sir Wilfrid Laurier lias done for the
Empire; docs Tint Daily News think
It is Something that deserves such enthusiastic commendation?
in a fow days, to engnge in the political fight in Yale-Cariboo and Uur
rard." Sydney is on the Atlantic
Hritish Columbia is on the Pacific,
The spectacle of this aged statesman
flying across the continent to take
part in two elections, after a hard
campaign of some months in the
East, is bound to excite admiration
even in his opponents. Tho Hritish
love a good fighter, and at eighty
years of age Sir Charles is all that.
Such a man deserved something better than defeat in his own constituency. If he had thought less of the
seats of others and more of his own
he would uot have suffered this indignity, the first in a political life of uncommon length.
Tho word from Washington is that
there is to be another try at settling
the differences with Canada. The first
commission was a dismal failure, and
now there is to be a second one.
Among the matters that are to be negotiated is a reciprocity treaty. So
ardent a continental free trader as Sir
Wilfrid Laurier will naturally be in
sympathy with this, and to secure it
will not hesitate to sacrifice that British preferential that has appealed so
warmly to the trading instincts of
the Old Country people, .'or a reci
procity treaty with the United States
and a British preferential can scarcely
go hand in hand. It is to be hoped
that in the next effort at settlement
the Canadian Premier will not be as
indifferent to the mineral interests of
Hritish Columbia as he proved himself
on the first occasion. The lead industry, for instance, can stand a good
deal of settling, and if the Premier
will listen less to his own flowing periods and think more of the real interest of the country he miglu in time
get this fact into his very unbusinesslike head.
If the truth were known it would
probably be discovered tbot Sir Wilfrid Laurier and Mr. Tarte are now
regretting that they carried their
race cry as far as they did. English-
speaking Canadians, who are in the
majority and have no notion of allowing themselves to be trampled upon,
are not likely to submit to French-
Canadian dictation. If this country is
to remain British, the Hritish in it
are determined to have a hand in its
government. With the House as at
present constituted, they are at the
mercy of a race that we are assured on
the authority of Mr. Tarte himself is
an alien one, more French than Brit
ish, and yearning for the time when
they will be in the majority and able
to establish an independent nation after their own hearts. In the light of
theBe aspirations, the invasion of the
Quebec hordes has created a teeling of
alarm which bodes little good to the
Laurier Liberals of   the Dominion.
The dispatches suggest that either
Sir Charles Tnpper or Mr. Foster may
seek to retuin to the Commons
through one of the British Columbia
constituencies that are yet open. It is
doubtful if Sir Charles at his age will
care to take up the burden of leadership under present conditions, but If
the Conservatives of the House are uot
to let the Government side have it all
their own way in matters pertaining
to the financial or fiscal affairs of the
country it will be neccBsary to find a
place for Mr. Foster. Either Yale-
Cariboo or Burrard should consider itself honored in having as Its repre
sentative the ablest debater in Can
ada, a careful financier, and a man so
entirely honest that his namo hasnev
cr beon associated with even the suspicion of a scandal.
Mr. Galliher is anxious that the
electors of Yale Cariboo should Bend
him to Ottawa to help Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, Mr. Tarte, and their fifty-

Most girls have a horror of becoming old maids, but the fear of this
dreadful fate is nowhere so intense as
in the French Province of llrctagne,
the Annonia of the ancients.
From all parts of this picturesque
and peculiar land heartfelt petitions
are constantly arising to heaven in
the hope of warding off this dire calamity.
The pure and spotless St. Catherine
has the matter in her especial charge,
but a local saint, Guirec by name, is
believed to posseSB great influence
with St. Catherine,and therefore ho is
pressed into service as an intercessor.
On St. Ouireu's day, the 23rd of November, every unmarried woman in
liretagne who sees her 2!ith year approaching and bringing no husband
with it, addresses an earnest prayer to
this canonized matrlmoniul agent.
A favorite method of attracting the
old man's attention is, to say the
least, peculiar. In the middle of the
great moor of l'iouraanac there is a
little  chapel,   containing  a    wooden
(image of St. Ouirco. According to
lireton belief a girl who sticltB a needle into the nose of this figure on St.
Guirec's day is sure to be married before, the end of the year. The girls
of the sea coast, however, make their
pilgrimage to the shrine on St. Catherine's day, April 30. Arrived at the
little chapel, they address not a word
of supplication, but clamber up to thu
pedestal of the Btatute and stick their
needles in his nose, which in a few
days assumes the appearance of a pop
ulous and thrifty pincushion, and so
it remains until the annual cleaning
A German atlas recently published
It Gotha contains  an   interesting list
fof the largest German cities of the
world���that is, the cities that have
the largest numbers of German inliab
Hants. The list embraces .3 cities,
and gives not only the German population of each, but tho proportion
which this bears to each.
Of the 17 cities with over 2(10,000 inhabitants, the first is, of course, Iierlin, with a German population of 1,-
050,000. Then come Vienna, 1,140,000;
Hamburg, 02(>,000; New York, 583,

458,000; Munich, 411,000; Chicago,

242,000; Frankfort on-the-Main, 225,-
000; Magdeburg 212.0(H), and Hanover,
Of the 523 cities In the whole list,
only 30 are in tho German empire.
Three are in Austria-Hungary, seven
in the Netherlands,two.in Russia, and
nine in the United States.
A Russian paper gives an interesting insight into the way they do
things on the now Siberian   Railway.
A merchant recently sent a carload
of fruit from Irkutsk to Chita. The
railway charges were 170 rubles but
the tips to railways ofllcials amounted
to 120 rubles more
Tipping,or "greasing" as it is call-
Ied in Siberia, is a  tax from which no
patron of tho railroad is exempt.
In the case mentioned the first
station master told the morchant that
the loaded car was "sick," or disabled, and would havo to bo side
tracked for repairs.
"How long will it take to make the
repairs'.'" the merchant asked.
"On, a week, at least," was the

bloody walrus flesh, did not become
inflamed in fair weather, but they
did not heal. They remained raw,
open wounds. The surface gradually
died but showed no tendency to form
a scab. Hut it was very different in
damp, cloudy weather.
Then fish, though already almost
dry, soon became mol:lly and putrescent. Tho walrus meat also soon became  offensive.
Shoes had to be kept well oiled to
prevent molding. Tho slightest
wounds festered at once. In some
cases the pain was so intense as to
make the hardy Hnilors writhe in
agony. But after lancing these
wounds healed rapidly sometimes in
one night.
In dry and germ-free air, therefore, there was neither inflammation
nor n tendency to heal, while in moist
germ-laden air intense Inflammation
and profuse supperation were quickly
followed by complete healing. It
would seem as if the system made no
offort to heal wounds except when the
presenco of bacteria makes them especially dangerous.
This wonderful spring is situated in
the l'rovince of ltadajoz, Spain, not
far from the Guadiana River, and has
long been in high repute as a curative of the ordinary ills that flesh is
heir to. Quite recently it has been
discovered that the waters have a peculiar potency in those affections of
tlie heart and nervous system, whieli
commonly attend disappointments in
love, and whieh hitherto have been
regarded as especially obstinate.
, So the Alanje spring is now visited
by throngs of love-sick maidens, ^and
the cures are numerous. In one case,
n black-eyed beauty of Leville, 17
years of age, of nervous temperament,
had developed so violent a hatred
of her lover, after a quarrel, that the
mero sight of hiin always threw her
into a condition bordering on mania.
She talked wildly and incoherently,
refused food, and after a period of insomnia fell into deep melancholy. She
was sont to Alanje, where she took
daily a full plunge bath and two
needle baths over the spine. An improvement in her condition was apparent within a wcok. Sluep and appetite returned, she talked rationally,
became reconciled to her lover, and
at the end of the second week was discharged as cured.
Another case was that of a young
peasant girl whose constancy to her
betrothed was suddenly disturbed by
the appearance on the scene of a dashing young cousiu, who sported a uniform. She suffered repeated attacks
of insanity, and had to be kept in restraint for months at a time. After
she had been brought to Alunjo it
took the combined efforts of live persons to give her tho first hath but iu
two weeks she wont home cured.

Nelson Daily Miner,  Fridav Evbkwo,  Novbmber 9   1900
(ireenwood, 11. C, Nov. (I.���The an-
nouncoinent made by Hon. J. A. Turner, Minister of Finance, that the
Provincial tlovernment had in view
the construction of a line from the
Boundary district to Pentioton, at the
foot of Okanogan Lake, so as to connect with the Canadian Pacific railway service on that lake and its
branch from the north end to Sicain-
ous, on the main line, has again directed attention to the possibilities of
the mineral resources of that section
of the Yale district known as the Sl-
niilkaincen. due of the most enthusiastic believers in the richness of the
many camps of that district is Frank
Hailey of Siniilakmeeu City. With a
view to directing attention to this
section, Mr. Hailey has published an
accurate map of a part of the Slmtlkameen, embraoing a dozen or more of
the hest known camps.
Speaking of the district he said:
"1 anticipate much travel next year
into the Similkameen, This past season many claims have been partly developed, and an effort has been made
to attract capital our way. Already a
number of townsites have been placed
on the market, among thom Here-
meos, Olalla, Princeton and Silmilka-
mcen City, and with the opening up
of the country they are bound to forge
"Oue of the best-known camps,
situated as it is in the heart of the
district, is Camp lledley. Tho most
important property in this camp and
on which steady development has been
in progress for many months is the
Nickel Plate, which is shortly to have
a thoroughly equipped mining plant
in operation. It was located late in
the fall of 18118. Shortly after, it was
examined by J. O'Toolc, Marcus
Daly's expert, who secured a 12
months' bond on a binds of $110,000.
K. M. Rogers is in charge of the development, and before the bond had
expired showed up over ��100,000 worth
of ore. Thero are three veins on the
claim, one of which is said to average
800 per ton,principally in gold.
l'ln Camp lledley most of the properties are surveyed and a great many
nre Crown tJranted. Among the most
itnportant groups besides the Nickel
Plate are the Climax, Kollo,Ironsides,
Draw, Ked Mountain, Wellington,
Florence and Oro Plata,all on the east
side of Twenty Mile creok.
The Beady Cash, Roadsides, lied
Cliff, Copper King, Jubilee and Mana
V., and many others are on the west
side of the Indian reserve and and
Twent)-Milo Creek.
"This camp is easily reached from
Silmilkameeu City, which is situated
on the main wagon road 33 miles
southeast of Princeton and 83 miles
northwest of Kereineos. Its location
comprises several large Hats, which
extend from the base of the mountains in the fan-shaped area on a gentle slope to the Siiiiilkaineeu River.
There is also an abundance of pure
creek water for domestic purposes.
The townsite company is installing
a sawmill plant and making extensive
preparations to build up the   place.
"The adjacent mining belt is about
80 miles wide, running for over -10
miles in a northwest and southeast direction from Copper Mountain to Hul-
lion Mountain. It includes Camp lledley, Stirling Creek camp, Pearson's
camp and Twenty, Kighteou, Sixteen
and Fifteen-Mile creeks. All these
have a number of lirst class mining
properties and a large extent of high-
grade ore iu sight. The ores of Ihe
district aro chiefly arsenical iron,
which in Camp lledley runs nigh in
gold aud silver,but in tlie other camps
the ores are ehielly chalcopyrite, carrying good gold  values.
"Sterling Creek, Pearson's and
Stray Horse camps are principally copper camps, whereas Camp Yuniinan is
nearly all quarts, carrying free gold
In paying quantities, The Copper ores
are usually combined with sufficient
lime, siliea and iron to make them
self-fluxing, There are several good
smelter sites in Camp lledley, and as
thu mountain sides an steep, being on
a 00 per cent slope on Twenty-Mile
Creek,all the ores will probably eventually bo treated in the valley below
Similkameen City, which adjoins tho
Indian reservation. "

Private A. S. Dee of the Nelson Rifles
Returned From   South Africa.
Alexander S. Dee, one of Nelson's
representative in the First Canadian
Contingent to South Africa, returned
from the scene of war yesterday after
a year's service. Owing to the unexpectedly early arrival of the steamer
the formal reception had to bo abandoned but the tooting of numerous
whistles along the lake front and the
enthiisiatic eheers of hundreds of citizens gathered on the wharf bespoke
tho pleasure it gave Nelson to have
its hero back. The loclal militia entertained the warrior in the   armory.
Mr. Lee is in the best of health and
had the somewhat remarkable record
of not being off duty one day through
wounds or sickness, although he was
under very heavy   fire scores of times.
There will be a rousing reception to
Lee tonight in the form of a smoking
concert in the Opera House. The
local militia aBsisted by the members
of tne tiro department have charge of
the affair and it is expected that there
will be a large attendance. A suitable programme is being arranged.
New Y'ork, Nov. 0.���A severe storm
began last night all over New Y'ork
State and continues today with the
wind rising to a gale. It Is also much
colder than yesterday and in Northern
New Y'ork snow storms are reported.
On tho coast the wind became bo high
that the marine observer in the Sandy
Hook tower was forced to leave his
post because the building swayed so
much that he feared that it would collapse. Just before he left he reported
It was blowing a hurricane and that
there was tremendously high waves at
sea. Some time earlier in the day an
unknown sloop lying is the Horse
Shoe inside Sandy Hook dragged her
anchor and was driven upon the
beach. All telegraphic service out of
New Y'ork was badly crippled by the
storm, and telegraph and press despatches moved very slowly.
San Francisco, Nov. 9.���The British
ship Flintshire is reported SOU miles
out and partly dismantled aB the result of several severe storms. She is
making for this port under a jury rig.
The Flintshire sailed from here on
September 38 last, grain laden for
Queenstown and her departure was
made notable by the fact that upon
crossing the bar she suddenly ran
into^a terrific gale and was unable to
land the pilot, Captain Scott, who
was carried down the coast several
hundred miles.
Toronto, Nov. 9.���A motion was
mnde before the Hoard of Control on
Saturday by Aid. Spence, chairman,
recommending the purchase of the
plaut of the Consumers' Gas Co., and
operate the same for the benefit of the
citizens. The value of the plant.and
real estate is estimated   at 83,500,-00.

Mr. J. M. Hitton, representing O.
G. Green, the millionaire manufacturer of August Flower and lioschee's
German Syrup, is in Nelson on a business trip.
A letter has been received in the
city from Edgar G. Beer announcing
that he has arrived safely at Dawson
City and that he will probably remain
there for the winter.
All loyal citizens should attend
Lee's reception at the Opera House
tonight. Every other city in Canada
has done itself proud and Nelson
should not be behind.
Mr. George Peters, who was operated on for appendicitis at the General
Hospital is doing very nicely. Tho
operation was performed by Dr. Arthur, physician to tho Venus mine.
A surprise party took place last
night, at the residence of Mr. J. E.
Annable, Kootenay Street. About 8
o'clock some thirty or forty friends
dropped in, and took possession until
after midnight. A very enjoyable
time was spent by all.
Henry B. Boie, of this city, today
entered action against T. O'Leary, administrator of ,1. n. O'Leary, railroad contractor and against D.
O'Leary, for the distribution of about
87,000 and the sale of the partnership
assets, and for the appointment of a
receiver for the estate.
An admission fee of 25 cents will be
charged at the reception to Private
Lee in the Opera House tonight.
This is done to defray the* costs.
Smokeables and drinkables will be
distributed freo of cost and all the patriotic people are expected to turn out
and make the welcome a right royal
one. A splendid programme has been
In a private wire from Cranbrook to
Provincial Constable Bullock-Webster,
it was stated that the case of Med
hurst, in which he was undergoing
his preliminary hearing on a charge
of conspiracy to defraud the Canadian
Pacific, had been adjourned until
Nov. 15 owing to the prisoner being
confined to the hopital at that place
and is now under medical treatment.
Medhurst was taken sick on Wednesday and was at once ordered to be taken to the hospital by Dr. King of that
place. The prisoner was placed under bonds for $3,500.
The Army and Navy Gazette, of
November 3rd, publishes a colored
plate showing types of the Canadian
army. Representatives of no less
than nine regiments are given in the
picture, including the Royal Canadian
Regiment, North West Mounted Police, Koyal Canadian Dragoons, �� gunner in the picturesque winter kit of
the Royal Canadian Artillery, the 10th
Grenadiers, and others. The coloring
and grouping of tho figures are very
striking, and the plate forms a remarkable reminder of the splendid
troops of the Dominion which rendered such signal service in the fight for
the flag in South Africa.
It is said by the local dealers and
brokers that at the present time there
is more merchandise coming into Nelson than ever before in the history of
the city. Not only is the incoming
trade rapidly increasing but the increase in the outgoing trade Is also
rapidly expanding notwithstanding
tho fact that a certain branch of this
trade is falling off by the opening of
new stores in tho outside towns. At
the present time the trade which is
entirely confined to this eity alone, Is
much better than it was at this timo
last year. The business men conducting grocery, hardware, drygoods and
other branches of trade, state that
they are experiencing an increasing
prosperity. The advance in trade is
largely attributed to the Increase In
mining operations, which of late havo
been quite, marked in tho eastern portion of British Columbia
It has generally been assumed hith-
eito that the hair of the human head
grows about an inch and a third per
month, or la inches a year. But an
investigator who has made minute
measurements at various times of life
finds that his own hair grew only a
little more than half an inch a month
in his twentieth year, and rather leBs
rapidly in his sixtieth. Be mado
some other interesting discoveries. In
contradiction to the common belief,
he says that cutting retards Instead of
promoting the growth of the hair,
an 1 that the normal rate of growth
is not restored until a considerable
Interval has elapsed after cutting.
Shaving is often followed by irregular
growth owing to the fact that tho
hairs are arranged in groups of from
two to four, and a curious law of
growth connects the members of each
group. One hair grows faster than
its fellows for a time, then the leadership falls to a second. When all have
had theiv turnB the first hair again
grows the most rapidly, and then the
rotation is repeated. Nor do the hairs
of a group ever fall out simultaneously. One always goes first, and so
the formation of bald spots is delayed.

From Coopersvillc, Mich., comes
word of a wonderful dscovery of a
pleasant tasting liquid that when
used before retiring by any one troubled with a bad cough always ensures
a good night's rest. "It will soon
cure the cough too, "writes Mrs S.
Ilimelburger, "for three generations
of our family have used Dr. King's
