Mass  Meeting at Winnipeg
Addressed by Labor
Leaders.
(SPECIALS TO TUK MINER.)
Montreal, .lune 22.���There is good
authority for the statement that a
meeting has been called for tomorrow
by the Brotherhood of Locomotive
Engineers, firemen and brakemen.
They will appoint a committee to confer with the management of the C, P.
R. with a view to bringing about a
settlement of thc trackmen's strike.
It is also stated that the brotherhood
look for a settlement of the strike before the end of next week. It is not
claimed that the C. P. R. will grant
all the demands of the trackmen's
committee but a fair compromise ib
looked for as a result of the intercession of thc committee to be appointed
by the different brotherhoods of railway employes mostly interested in
tbe condition of the road bed.
TO BUILD TO
JAMES BAY
W'nuipeg, June 22.���As far as the
coinpany ia concerned there is nothing
new in the C. P. R. strike situation.
The company and men cannot agree
on the question as to how many of the
men have gone back to work. The
company aays several gangs have returned and that more will follow.
This the men deoy and state positife-
ly that thcie is not a man working
on the seoticn between here and
llrandon and .lint there is not likely
to be any return to ~ .irk until word
to do so comes from Montreal. Reports which the company will not confirm are being spread from time to
time around the station here. It is
stated that the train from the west
last night was delayed for two hours
owing to section men having let the
water run out of .he water tanks west
of Regiua. The coinpany,on the ether
haud, say that the train waa late owing to a heavy load it had to haul thnt
day.
The train from the east this   morn
ing was five hours  late.    There   were
two sections us   far as   Fort   William
and the company's olll-iials stats   that
the   delay   was  caused by having  to
connect two trains.   The men say this
was not the   only   reason for the  delay, that it was owing to wires being
down   which   prevented   proper   dispatching,    llow the   wires got   down
the   company   don't   feel disposed   to
say and it is hinted  the   section   men
could   tell   something   about it.    Another stoiy that is told by the   men is
given by them to Bhow in what   sympathy the   people   living   at   wayside
stations look on the men's attitude. It
Is stated that when one  of  the  west
bound trains arrived at   a station not
far from Ignaoe, the   engineer   found
leaning against the water tank,a ma_
who appeared to  be   waiting   for the
tiain.    This   was   tbo   case for when
thu  engineer   was   near  enough   the
man asked him if he might climb  up
and   ride   to the next station   to  get
something tu eat. The engineer asked
him   what was   wrong   with   getting
something   to  eat at the town   where
he was at.    The man said two   stores
in the place refused lo give  biifl anything.    He had money   to   pay for  it
too.    The   ongincer   wanted to   know.
what he was    "I'm   patrolling   here
for the company,'' said the man. "In
that ease." said   the engineer, "then
you will do uo better at the other station, so you might   us well stay right
here   and   reform."    It is understood
that   the   company   are   now making
preparations  to   feed   the  patrolmen
by sending out cars of supplies,
A meeting of the striking trackmen and other prominent labor unionist! washeld last night in trades hall.
The time was spent in listening to
uddiesses from those Interested in the
labor movement. Tho strikers were
assured that they had the sympathy
of other labor unions and the general
opinion expressed was that if the
strikers remained firm thoy were sure
of obtaining concessions for which
they were fighting. It was also announced that the bridgemen in British Columbia had gone" on strike in
sympathy with the truckmen. Tho
principal speech of the evening was
mado by Mr.A. W. Puttee, M. P. He
advised the men to stick to the committee now at Montreal in oharge of
their affairs. He said he wasperson
ally acquainted with Mr
son, president of the
Lennox, chalrmun of
and other members
and   they   could
CLOSING THE ST. EUGENE.
Moyie   to    Suffer    Another    Serious
Reverse Next Week.
The report as to the probable closing down of tbe St. Eugene properties
at Meyie^which appeared in Tbe Miner last Wednesday was confirmed yesterday. The property will close down
about the end of next week. For
some time the company operating tbe
.St. Eugene have been shipping their
concentrates direct to Belgium for both
smelting aud refining. While there
bus been a profit in this,it is evidently not considered enough,and it is said
that for this reason there will be a
total closedown. This will be a severe blow to Moyie, as the town at
present depends entirely on the St.
Eugene either directly or indirectly
for its existence. There are several
small properties being worked in the
vicinity of Moyie, but from the small
number of men employed they are
comparatively unimportant as regards
the town. One of the beat of these Is
the Aurora group, on the opposite
side of the lake from Moyie, which is
owned by the men who sold the Lake
Shore to the Gooderham-Blackstock
corporation two years ago. They are
well satisfied with the results already
secured,and will continue the working
of the property which will eventually
make a good mine from all indications. The same conditions which retard the development of lead properties everywhere in British Columbia at
the present time, will also keep the
Aurora from being worked beyond a
ceitain point until a lead refinery
shall have been established in Canada.
This also applies to the other jrop-
erties. that are being worked in the
neighborhood.
A larije sawmill was to have been
established at Moyie this summer, but
owing to the high water it was seen
that the only site available close to
to the town was liable to be flooded
so the mill Ib being put in a couple of
miles east of the town.

(SPECIAL,- TO THE MINIMI.)
Quebec, June 22.��� The first practical
step towards the construction of the
railway to James Bay haa been taken.
Henry O'Sullivan and a party of engineers have left to locate the first ten
miles of the section of the proposed
road from Roberval toward the bay,
which will be given out to contract in
a few weeks, as soon as thu engineers have completed their work.
the Province, has probably put out
more ore than any othor property,
and it is exceedingly satisfactory to
hear that it is likely to again take its i
place among the big producers. The!
rise in the price of these shares,
which not so long ago could have
been picked up at Is. a piece, appears
to be warranted riot onlv by the improved outlook at the mine itself, but
from the fact that the profits of the
smelter have defrayed the cost of the
new mining plant which has recently
been laid down, and also the extensive development which has been undertaken at the mine, upwards of 00
men being constantly employed since
the re-organization of the company.

Work Will He Commenced Immediately and Rushed Through.
��� The St. Paul representative of The
Spokesman-Review wires bis paper
that Peter Siems, the contractor who
is to build the Republic branch of the
Great Northern north from Spokane,
was seen by The Spokesman-Review
representative tonight. Mr. Siems
said:
' "There is no contract for the building of this road. 1 snail do the work
under the approval of the chief engineer. With John Stevens engineer,
I shall leave for Spokane Monday.
I^e will go over the ground and reach
a  basis  for  carry ng  on   the   work
"There are to bo eighty miles of
road built aud to do thi. by fall will
necessitate some rush work. I shall
put men to work at once; as many as
can be worked to advantage.
"I have sent out some working outfits and others will follow at once.
There are no details to give out. ft

ing."
Chief Engineer Stevens said : "Work
will be pushed through without delay."
All of the rolling stock for this
new extension was ordered last week
for delivery November l.but that date
is likely to find the Republic branch
still uuncorapleted. Mr. Siems will
have as his chief assistant.L, E. Henries, who will remain coustanty with
the workingcrews. Tracklayii g will
follow as fast as ties can be laid.
School Population Has Nearly
Quadrupled ln Four
Years.
While Nelson's population is steadily increasing by means of immigration, the natural increase is no mean
factor in adding to thc number uf
nhabitants here. The number of
children, especially of four years and
under is something wonderful. Three
years ago the number of children
attending the public school was under
150. The present public school which
was completed but a short time ugo,
is now filled to its utmost comfortable
capacity,which is three hundred cbil-
dred. Besides this, there is St. Joseph's school,   conducted by   a   sister-

well, is the large number of pupils
that are coming in from outside
points; Victoria, Vancouver, New
Westminster, Greenwood, Phoenix,
Rossland, Kaslo, and many smaller
towns through the Kootenays being
among those represented. For the
coming session the number from other
towns will be far larger than even
during the present one.
At present the university entrance
examinations are in progress. The
formul closing and presentation of
prizes will take place some day at tho
end of next week, at which parents
and those interested in educational
matters will be welome.
Besides the ordinary branches taken
up in the school, needlework, both

Brigade   Quickly   Responds to a  Call
and Little Damage Done.
Last evening about half past  seven
o'clock the city fire brigade   had   the
first genuine   run  for   several  weeks
and were   so  promptly on   time  that
they  succeeded   in   preventing  what
might have been a   very serious   con-
ilagratioii.    The   fire   originated     in
the rooms occupied   by Mrs.   Carr   In
the Vlotoria block, in the brick addition next to  the  Clarke liouse.   The
rooms are   used ns;; dressmaking   parlors and Mrs. Cair   also resides thero.
After the close   of   her   week's  woik
the usual weekly clean up was In progress and the  results of the   work  of
the broom were deposited in the stove.
This   caused.,-un   abnormal     draught
with a consequent rise in the temperature of the   stove. ' Tbe   wood  box,
which was standing near   caught  the
lnfeotion   and   traiisferiod   it   to the
plaster   wall.   Before the occupant of
the rooms wbb aware of  It   the  place
was filled with smoke  and  the alarm
of fire was raised.   The firemen   were
quickly on the   spot   and by   the   aid
of the chemical the blaze was soou extinguished.   The fire   had   eaten   its
way   into   the   pluster and the  wood
box was burned   to   the   floor  of tbe
room.   Fortunatilv   the   fire had not
made  much  progress   beforo  it  was
discovered ' and   the   damage   to  the
property will amount to a small sum.

probably a very conservative estimate
to say tbat within six yeais from now
there will be at least 1,200 children of
school age, including kindergaiten,
in Nelson,
Nelson's first school was taught  in
a room in Dr.Arthur's liouse,by a volunteer teacher. Rev. T. 11.   Rogers,   a
Presbyterian      missionary.     It     was
started in 18111   with   about   a   do/.en
pupils.    A couple of   years   ufter, the
first regular   school   was   begun   and
from   then     till   the   present    date,
there has   never heen  a   lon��   period
when the full holding capacity of  the
schools were not taxed.   Till the present comfortable   building was erected
the old echoolhouse was anything but
suited for the_ purpose  for   which   it
was   biiilt,    being   poorly   ventilated
and badly lighted.    In consequence of
this for  seveial years a large number
uf children weie sent away   either   to
the  coast or the east to he   educated.
Alrendy   many   of   these   have   liecn
transferred back to Nelson, nnd   now
tbe tide lias turned and the  surrounding towns arc beginning to send their
children to Nelson for education. The
reputation   of the  city as a desirable
educational   centre hns  been   greatly
enhanced   in   the past year,   and the
next session   will   undoubtedly   show
what this   means   to the   city.    It  is
bnt   two    years   ago since  at   least
twenty   families   of   men     who   had
wished to establish their homes   here
moved to other places on   account   of
dissatisfaction   with   the   school that
wns then  provided.    Kuch   room   hud
then far over its regulation   quota  of
scholars, in some cases nearly double.
ThiB, however, has all keen remedied,
and it lies   with  tho Provincial   Government to see that the  public school
shall not again become   oveicrowded.
The   site   of   the   school is an   admirable one, not too far up   the  hill
for the   downtown   children to climb
to, and   within   eusy reach   of   those
wbo live higher   up.   The location is
more  desirable,   being in a lirst class
residential     neighborhood,    with     a
magnificent   view   from   almost   any
pait of the grounds, which are roomy
and well suited to their purposes.
A high school was Btaited in connection with the public school in
January last, of which Mr. R. .1.
Clark is principal. So far it is held
in one of thu rooms of the public
school.
ln the public school there are now
six teachers; J. II. Moady, principal;
Mr. O. W. Clark, Miss McLeod, Miss
Wickham, Mrs. I'curey, and Miss
Rath, homing u most ellicient and
able, stall'.
The high school examinations
began last Wednesday and will finish
next Thursday, about 80 pupils being
engaged on them.
The public school started its! examinations last Monday, nnd they also
will   extend over several duys.
Next Friday will see the .closing
of both high and public schools for
the holloa) s, but it is not liKely thut

The second institution of learning

consequence was the school opened by
the Sistors of St. Joseph. This was
first started in Fehiuary, 1000, with
accommodations fi i lUOchildren. This
not being found adequate lo meet the
number of applicants for admission.in
September of the same year the new
and handsome building ut present occupied, was commenced, and Unlabel)

Bishop of New Westminster visited
and consecrated the school, and expressed his pleasure and satisfaction
at the work that had been accomplished, saying that he could hardly hnve

done in so slum a time.
At present there aro aecominoda-

boarders. Up to ehe end of this session both girls and boys have been
taken as boarders, but owing to the

promptly took him in charge giving
him a night's lodging in the eooler.
Yesterday he was again before the police court and fined SHI and costs or in
default of payment two months imprisonment. He haB been a previous
occupant of one of the Nelson polico
cehs and was evidently well satisfied
with the treatment h�� there received
so elected to return to his old quarters.
C. Si llendryx who was charged
with assaulting a Chinaman named
Sing by dipping bim in the lake, was
brought before the magistrate to answer the charge. But as Sing was ev-
idently singing in some other place at
the time of the trial the case was remanded until Monday   morning.
Blanche Woods, who haa only been
out of the Provincial jail a few days,
was again taken in charge for vag-
rnne;. She was found by the police
roaming around the stieetB and made
to appear to give an account of herself. The magistrate not desiring to
be too hard on erring humanity, remanded the ease until Monday next.
She was allowed hei liberty being
bound on her own bonds of 820 to
appear. As it is well known that she
was "strapped," it is a very doubtful
problem us to whether the lady will
be seen in these parts on Monday
morning at 10 o'clock.
James Smith was another vagrant
who wiib arrested by the police occupying an uwncrless shack and having
no visible means of support. He hnd
no bedding or anything to indicate
that he was a tenant of tho building.
As ho could not give a very satisfac-
toiy account of himself tbe case wns
remanded until Monday morning,
when it is expected that he will be in
fresh fields nnd pastures _ew.
Charles Bennett was another hard
case before the court yesterday, and
a chum ot Smith's. Be was charged
with causing a disturbance on Hull
street on Friday evening nnd was arrested hy Constable lleavener on the
charge of attempting to smash in a
Chinaman's door and fur attempting
to resist the police in tbe discharge
of their duty. He was lined 8!, and
costs. By hard wont he scraped up
enough of the collate nil. paid the Hue
and departed for some place where
lh*_e aro no "bobbies."
Charles French was brought up for
drunkenness I ut was not sufficiently
recovered from his spree and was given shelter in the polieu cell* until
Monday morning to allow him to recover.

A PETTY POLICY.
This is the caption to a short editorial article in the latest issue of The
Cranbiook Herald, which is wortli
quoting in full: "Tbe Nelson Tribune taunts the people of Ymir on
the fact that they failed to get any
appropriation for needed improvements in that town, and jubilantly refers to the vote they cast last year,
which was against the editor of The
Tribune, who is the .member for that
district. The people of Ymir ate in
about the same position as the people
of Cranbrook, who voted for E. C.
Smith, a member of the Opposition.
Mr. Smith haa asked for needed improvements in and about Cranbrook,
and got nothing but promises. If the
present Government proposes to advance the best interests of the Province by granting appropriations for
only those communities that voted
with them, they will succeed in making themselves tbe most despised outfit tbat ever contiolled the political
affairs of the Province. Such a policy
may seem good politics to the narrow*
minded; but it is so little, so petty,
so contemptible, tbat even the beneficiaries, although pleased with what
they gain, must as men condemn a
party that will resoit to such methods for political revenge."
The case with regard to Mr. Smith
and Cranbrook is doubtless put correctly, as The Herald is on the spot
and consequent'y familiar with the
circumstances. But in regard to Ymir
it is even worse than here represented. One requires to be alert to keep
in mind the various party divisions in
this Province. The party in power
now was known at the time of the
last election, for want of a more distinctive name, as the Turner party,
and its candidate in this Killing was
Mr. Frank Fletcher. Mr. Houston
ran as a Semlin party candidate, and
was bitterly opposed to the Turner
party. From his chaste mouth,as well
as from his chaste newspaper, came
many words iu denunciation of Mr.
Turner, Mr. Dunsmuir, and the entire
aristocratic, plutocratic, aud autocratic element that was supposed to
carry things with a high hand at Victoria. The Ymir vote was very pro
nounced in favor of Mr. Fletcher as
against Mr. Houston; that is,. Ymir
voted in support of tlie leaders who
are now in power.
Those leaders came in soon aftor the
election,and Mr. Houston lost no time
in making a bid for the patronage
That patronage properly belonged to
Mr, Fletcher as the candidate of the
successful party, and he, too, made
claim to it; ..bul Mr. Dunsmuir was
looking around for supporters with
votes in tile House, and as Mn Houston showed a willingness to drop the
party whose candidate lie had been,
and make himself a good fellow with
the party on top, ho got the patronage
and Mr. Dunsmuir got sulllcient assurance of support to satisfy him.
When,a few weeks ago, the Ymir people who voted to sustain the men
who are in protested uguinst the disappointment in obtaining a much
needed appropriation, they were
jeered at by this Opposition candidate
who so suddenly developed into a Min
isterial momber. They were told in
effect that he was the (iovernment so
far as appropriations in this Riding
were conceined, and although they
supported the governing party they
opposed him and that was enough to
cook their goose. Such are polities.in

The Colonial Goldfields Gazette vig
oromly defends Mr. VVhitaker Wright
In connection with the Globe and the
British America collapse. "So far as
we can see," it says, "Mr. Wright
has acted throughout the trying ordeal of the past six months in a
straightforward and magnanimous
manner." It is disposed to accept the
explanation   that   the   Globe   defunlt
was due to treachery, and granting
that, "then the British America
collapse must be regarded as the aftermath o* that treachery, the Stock Exchange failures consequent on the
Globe crash having a disastrous effect
on the British America Corporation."
In saying a word for Mr. Wright It
is perfectly conscious of taking the
unpopular view, but it does so because, to quote its own words, "although we have ,no admiration for
Mr. Whitaker Wright's _naucia'
methods,we are convinced that he has
been made the viotim of a foul conspiracy."   _^^
' Six years ago Nelson was about
the size that Cranbrook is today,"
says The Herald of that place. "Cranbrook has even better opportunities
than Nelson hud, and all that is necessary is for the people of Cranbrook
to stand together. In unity of action
there is strength, and such a course
will bring success to Cranbrook and
her people." Nelson has not been
successful because its people have
stood together. It is doubtful if there
is a town in Canada iu which the
jealousies and hates and rivalries of
factions have flaunted themselves mure
vigorously or with more evil intent.
There is one element here that is
bound to rule, and everything is to
be sacrificed to its malice. Nelson
has grown in spite of strife, which is
the best evidence of its splendid
vitality.    	
If more men would follow Mr.
Campbell-Johnston's example,and con
tribute such letters as we published
yesterday to the mining journals of
Great Uritain, the effect would undoubtedly be good. We keep complaining that British capital is not
coming in as fast as it. ought,considering the advantage offered for investment ; but if we knew the truth It
would probably be found that this
was less owing to distrust of our resources than to want of knowledge of
them. If we can succeed in convincing foreign capitalists of the Immense
riches awaiting development In Hritish Columbia, the money will come,
and thorc is no better way of doing
this than to tell about them und to
keep ou telling.
That would be   a memorial   the   people of Winnipeg could appreciate.
IT DAZZLES THE WORLD.
No Discovery in medicine has ever
cteated one quarter of the excitement
that has been caused by Dr. King's
New Discovery for Consumption. It's
severest tests have been on hopeless
victims of Consumption, Pneumonia,
Hemorrhage, Pleurisy and Bronchitis,
thousands of whom it has restored to
perlect health. For Coughs, Colds,

aud Whooping Cough it is the quickest, surest cuie in the world. It is

It is a very easy mutter to nnseat n
member because of corrupt practices
either by himself or by others in his
behalf. It is likely, therefore, that
Mr, UieliurdBon, of Lisgar, will have
to walk the plank ; there is no reason
to suppose that his election differed
from others by being a pure ono.
What is interesting In his case is that
there is not the slightest probability of
his being re-elected, and what is satisfactory about it is that no one
will care if he Is not.
Lady Schultz, relict of a late Lieutenant-Governor of Manitoba, is about
to proceed to England to order a
?2(),W)0-window for Holy Trinity
church, Winnipeg, as a memorial of
her husband. Some one should suggest to Lady Schultz that a more suitable, because more serviceable, memorial would be an appropriation for the
completion of the tower and the installation   of   an   illuminated   clock.

YMIR   MINE.
The following circular has been issued to the shareholders by the secretary of the Ymir Hold Mines, Ltd.
in London: "As you are aware, experiments have been carried out over
an extended period ivttli n view to the
extraction of the gold remaining in
the tailings by means of the cjnnide
process. These experiments were in
the first Instance carried out; upon a
small scale with satisfactory results,
after which a small and complete
plant was laid down for treating some
hundreds of ten s per month. The
result of this latter bulk treatment, is
given in tho following cable just received: 'Cyanide process present
rate of extraction is gold ill) per cent.,
esil-lttted profit per month (with)
Until plant 7,mill dols. (-1,450).' This
information is eery gintifying, as the
above figures represent an additional
profit from this source of some ��17,-
00(1 per annum, fquul to 8J_ per cent,
on the total capital of the company.''
TRIGGER  ANU TRAP.
The Nplson (iun club held its regular weekly shoot yesterday afternoon.

cher, 13; Clarence Goepel, 15; E.
diddle, 17; S Nelson, 10 out of 20.

affection and leaving the parts in a
strong and healthy condition. It is not
an experimental medicine, but has
stood the test of years, giving satisfaction iu every case, which us
rapidly increasing sale every season
confirms. Two million bottles sold

THE CITY
��/VWWV^WUV~W^A^.WA��
Rev. Norman Tucker of Christ
Church, Vancouver, will preach in St.
Saviour's church this evening
at 7.30.
Hy next week stawberrles are expected to arrive in large quantities,
and tht price will probably be lower,
allowing housekeepers to commence
their annual preserving.
The sidewalk ou Falls street, be-
twsen Victoria and Haker, was finished yesterday, anl will prove a
great convenience for those living
west of Kootenay street.
C. Smith and a couple of friends
spent the last two days on a fishing
trip to Bonnington Falls. Between
them they secured thirty trout, all
of goodly size and weight.
The water main on Baker street,
near Fall street,burst yesterday morning and caused a fountain of water to
gush forth for some hours until the
break was locate, and the pipe repaired.
The Trail delegates to tbe meeting of the Grand Lodge of Masons left
for home on the afternoon train yesterday,all expressing their pleasure at
the delightful time they had had during their visit.
The secured claims and charges of
assignment, in the case of the estate
of Iiillie Bros., amount to S3.311 more
than the sum realised for sto.k and
fixtures. There remain over $4,000 of
unsecured claims,which of course will
be a total loss.
Services will be held at the usual
hours at the Baptist church today.
Pastor Morgan will speak both morning and evening. In the morning
tbe Epistle to Romans will be discussed and in the evening he will discourse
up m the 11st- Commandment.
The mosquitoes are beginning to get
troublesome in the woods and hills,
but fortunately Nelson is exempt from
these obnoxious pests. Visitors from
East Kootenay say that it will probably be an extremely bad year for
mosquitoes in that part, as they are
already in swarms.
Preparations for the grand labor
demostration and picnic at Slocan City
on June 25th and :211th are going merrily forward. A very good list of
sports and attractions has been prepared and tbeie will probably be a
large number of Nelson people take
advantage of the low rates advertisod.
Owing to the giving out of the mechanical roaster at the smelter last
week, a new one is in process of erection. The new furnace and machinery
will be considerably larger than those
of tbe one foimerly in use, of which
a description was given in The Miner
a "ouple of weeks ago. Till the woik
is completed the hand roaster will be
used entirely.
A special feature will be Introduced
at the Congregational service this
evening. Two weeks ago the children of the congregation took entire
charge of the service in tbe morning
with such satisfaction to the congregation and credit to themselves
that by special request they will repeat the service this evening. The
service will commence at 8 o'lock instead of the usual hour. Rev. Mr,
Munroe will preach at the morning
service.
FAMILY FOOD.
Orsp,   Toothsome,   and    fiequires    No
Cooking.
A little boy down in N. C, asked
hiB mother to write an account of
how Urapc-Nuts Food had helped their
family.
She says drape-Nuts waB first
brought to her attention on a visit to
Charlotte, whore she visited the
Mayor of that city who was using the
Food by the advice of his physician.
She says, "They derive bo much good
from it that they never pass a day
without using it. While I wns theie
I used the Food regularly. I gained
about 15 pounds and felt so well
that when I returned home I began
using Orape-Nuts in the family regularly.
My little 18 months old baby shortly
after being weaned was very ill with
dyspepsia and teething. She was
sick nine weeks and wc tried everything. She became so emaciated that
it was painful to bundle hor und we
thought we were going to lose her.
Ono day a happy thought urged me
to try Orape-Nuts soatted in _ little
warm milk.
. Well it worked like a charm and she
began taking It regularly und improvement set in at once. She Is now
getting well and round and fat as fasl
ns possible and on llinpc-Nuts.
Somo ti-mu ago a number of Ihe
family were stricken with La Orippe
at the tame time, and (luring the worst
stages we could not relish anything
in the .nape of food lint Gl'ftpe-Nutfl
and oranges, everything clso nauseated us. We all appreciate what your
famous food has done for our him-
ily."
Another of tbe wandering cripple
beggars struck town yesterday, His
specialty was selling cards with a few
verses of doggrol   poetry on them.
The Canada Drug A Hook Co. has
made its store handsome by an elaborate display of decorative goods
which have been received in readiness
for   the Dominion  llay celebrations.
Frank Tamblyn, the headquarters
ofthe Order of Buffalo, has done a
large business during the last few
days in the sale of Buffalo pins,
having disposed of over eight dozen in
three days.
The firemen are getting together
quite a collection of animnl pets,
which are being provided with the bed
and board they require. They are preparing to accommodate a whole
menagerie.
The services at St. Saviours church
will be conducted by the Rev. II. S.
Akehurst today, morning and evening,
and the Rev. L. Norman Tucker, of
Christ Church, Vancouver, will preach
the sermon at the evening service.
Several prospectors left for the Lardeau yesterday. There are still five
or six in town who intend to try their
luck in that section, but are waiting
for the snow to go off the hills as it
is still quite deep in the higher parts.
Special serivces will be held at the
Salvation array barracks to day, when
Adjutant McGill will give a special
address on the "Scenes From the Life
of Christ." Major Beaumont of
Rossland will be present and will
also address the soldiers.
The town's big grocery stores come
up smiling this morning, bidding for
patronage. Citizens will not go astray
in dealing with either one of them.
Nelson is famous for its fine stores,
but in no line is there greater excellence than in.its groceries.
Edward Grizzle, the florist, finds
bis business extending so much that
he is enlarging the capacity of his
greenhouse on Hoover street by building an addition on the same giou__,
The new building is 20x50 aod the
work is being done by J.R. Campbell.
F. Anderson, a section man who
was working on the line near Ward's
Crossing, last Tuesday sighted a bear
with two cubs. Anderson and a couple of the men working near him secured a rifle at tbe section house and
shot the bear, which neighed about
four hundred pounds. Both the cubs
escaped.
The editor of The Miner has received an invitation from the mayor,
council and citizens committe-fto attend ?he Dominion Day festivities at
Vancouver. The invitation is acknowledged with thanks but the editor
.viil be busy heie eDjoying the elaborate programme that isbeingairang-
ed for the same two days.
The young people's societies of this
city have arranged to hold u Union
rally at the Haptist church on Tuesday evening next. There will be a
song service in cbi.cb-.ch in the early
part of the programme after which
there will be a general discussion on
"The Coming Convention," led by
the Rev. J. H. White of the Methodist
church.
At the Socialistic club meeting to
be held in the Miners' Union ball this
afternoon under the auspices of the
Socialistic Eductional Club, all inter
ested in the solution and discussion
of the questions of the day are invited
to be present and take a part in the
proceedings. Ladies are also invited
to be present. The proceedings will
commence at 3 o'clock.
Alfred Bunker went down the lake
yesterday to seize, for the sheriff,
the interest of Herbert Cutbbert in the
Hlend mineral claim on the west fork
of Rover creek. While going up the
trail, and when about six miles from
the railway, Mr. Bunker spied what
he thought was a black cayuse and
stopped for a moment to look,when lie
discovered that it was an immen.c
black bear, which fled when he gave
an alarm.
Yesteray afternoon two seedy looK-
ing individuals arrived in town and
wandered down Haker street as far as
Ward, when they stopped and held a
discussion on ways and means. All
their available funds were twenty-five
cents and while one wished to go for
a couple of drinks the other wanted
something more solid. They finally
decided to toss up, which was done
with the result that the quarter went
down a crack in the sidewalk, and
left them staring at each other in a
silence more eloquent than words.
The'fire laddies hud their weekly
practise ruu yesterday morning, when
an alarm called them out to the corner of Hall and Vernon streets. After reaching the place of the imaginary fire they expeiimented with tho
new cellar hose which has recently
been added to their equipment. It
acts in the same manner as tbe ordinary garden sprinkler and does good
work. It is Intended to be used In thoBe
cases where the fire is doing its deadly
work in tho cellar. Hy cutting a hole
In the floor and inserting this nozzle
it makes a brave attempt to stop the
ravages of the Haines nnd can be used
to good advantage ln aueh cases.
The lady who was causing the city
police so much anxiety the other evening, and whose husband was attempting to desert her, has been heard from
again. The action of the police in
bringing about a reunion of the distressed couple has had a good effect
and the happy woman is now again
under the rightful protection of her
lord and master. When he awoke to
the faot that they were again in the
same boat, he reconciled himself to
the state of things and evidently set
his teeth and resolved to give her another trial. They there and then
made up but whether they kissed
history saycth not. They departed for
Spokane.
