Plans Approved Last Night.
Work to Be Started In
Four Weeks.
A private meeting was held last
evening in the Salvation Army barracks to discuss the erection of a new
barracks and as a result of the meeting u telegram was forwarded to
headquarters at Toronto to proceed
with the plans and specifications
whioh are expected to ariive in the
city in about ten days. Tenders for
the new building will be called for
at once and it is expected that work
will bo commenced some time during
Majoi Ilargraves of Spokane arrived
In the city the other evening from
Ferine. The object of his visit was
to confer with the local corps in regard to the work ot building the new
Salvation Army barracks iu this eity.
A sketch plan of the building had
been forwarded from Toronto, which
was submitted to the local officers
last evening. The building will be
of solid brick and the ground lloor
plan will bo 47x58 feet. It will be
two story high and contain a small
hall in the front 81x88 feet with officers quarters above. The hall will be
capable of holding 150 people. At the
rear will be an auditorium 34x4. feel
with :.'l foot ceiling with a seating
capacity .f 350. The officers quarters will be the same size as the small
hull and will contain four large rooms
in addition to all office und a bath
room. The front of the building will
be faced brick with stone facings and
will hnve an ornamental tower at
each corner. At the west end tower
will be the entianee, containing a
vestibule lOxfl and a lobby leading lo
each of the. halls 10x14. The building
will be heated throughout by hot air
and lighted by electricity. All the
mate'ial will be procured in the city
and it is the intention of the army to
let the contract to local contractors.
Immediately the plant and specifications are completed the work will be
proceeded with and it is the nim of
those in charge to have the work completed as soon as possible. It is tht
doi-ire of the loeal officers to have the
barracks ready for occupation before
the cold weather, if at all possible.
The old barracks will remain in the
position they now occupy and will
continue to be used while the new
building is being erected. The new
building will come to the street line
on Victoria street and when completed will add another handsome block
to the other valuable properties which
now adorn the city. It is expected
that the barracks will cost in the
neighborhood of SO.OOO. Of this
amount the sum of S3,000 has already
been subscribed and the balance of the
amount vyill be obtained from the
Army's reserve fund, ln addition to
this there will be the cost of seating,
lighting and heating.
Major Ilargraves leaven the oity today and will visit Rossland, before his
return to Spokane.

and instrumental selections which

A few minutes before 2 p. m., tho
children marched into the large class
room, the little boys looking most of.
them aa if they veiy much wished the
ceremonies were over, and the little

plenty of bright ribbons, appearing to
thoionghly enjoy themselves. The

I Canada Attractive to Ihe Hritish Farm
| Laborer.
j London, June '.'8.���While farmers
here complain nf the scarcity of labor
| the attractions of Canada are causing agriciiltmnl laborers to emigrate
lin large numbers to tlio Dominion,
There is inddeed a "boom" in emigration to Canada going on. Some time
ago the farmers of .Manitoba, finding themselves short of laborer., deputed Mr. Ailiimsou to visit this
country in search of men, and subscribed sufficient funds to advance BS
to fifty emigrant-, the money to be
repayable after a certain time.
So many applicants eanie forward.
to go out on these terms Unit the Canadian Government offered a further
advance on the same lines to 1IH)
mon, ��5 going a long way toward
paying the cost of the journey,
Mr. Colmer,secretary to the Dominion Agenoy in London, told a representative of the Express yesterday
that of late there has been an unprecedented demand for Information
from prospective emigrants.
"Within the past five months," snid
Mr. Colmer, "we bave received 8,000
letters of inquiry at th's office, apart
altogether from the Innumerable Inquiries addressed to tho agents invar-
ions parts of tho country."
Many of the inquiries came, curiously enough, fiom South Africa, nnd
this Mr. Colmer attributes to the Canadian contingents, the members of
which apparently have lost no opportunity "f singing the praises of the
land of then  birth.
The reason why agricultural laborers are so ready to emigrate lo Canada
is to be found in the fact that opportunities are open to them there whicli
do not exist al homo. Many men who
once worked as laborers here now
own profitable farms in the Dominion.
The Canadian Government is most
energetic in disseminating information respecting the resources of the
land of the maple leaf.
Its representatives on this side distribute broadcast among pupils at the
elementary schools text books, atlases
and copybooks, dealing with the Ho-
minio',,, and recently 1,000 schools took
part in a competition for the best essay on the Dominion. As a result I,-
0(10 medals were disti ibnted. and another competition is now being arranged.
The government ot the province of
New Brunswick is also making
efforts to attract population.
It has arranged for cheap fares for
people who are desirous of viewing
the land before definitely deciding to
settle. During their stay in New
Brunswick the visitors will be specially looked after by the   authorities.

(Continued on Third Page.)
The Dominion Day celebrations
commenced last evening \y the put
ting up of three paper balloons. Thev
were sent up in fiont of the Hume hotel and on account of the extremely
quiet evening they went up ns
straight as if they bad been shot out
of a gun, and after promenading the
skies returned to the earth in tho vicinity of the boat house.
A number .f tho merchants of the
city bad their front blinds all down
yesterday preparing their windows
for the Monday display and there
are a number of surprises iu store for
the citizens on Monday morning,
Some of tho stores have already completed their decorations and others
were busy Thursday afternoon nnd
apparently all day yesterday.

The Value of the Nelson Fire
Brigade Again Demonstrated.
The value of the Nelson fire brigade
was again demonstrated last evening.
About HI o'clock an alarm was rung
from the K. W. C. bloek. where Me-
I'hcrson & MeCumuion's store was
seen to be ablaze. The .fire biignde
was soon on the spot   nnd by  the   aid
if tbe chemical the fire was soon un-
dor control. The handsome plate
glass window was broken which will
lane in the neighborhood of J300 to
replace. The cause of the liie originated in the heat of the incandescent
light igniting tlie paper with which
the light was decorated. The proprL
ctors of the. store have been busily engaged during tlie last two days in
decorating the store for tho Dominion llay celebration nnd were just
pntting the finishing touches to their
display when the fire stalled. As
there was n large amount of decorative
tissue paper all around, it was only a
few seconds before the whole thing
was a blaze and although the proprietors attempted to an est the flames by
tearing down the work I hey were
just on the point   of completing,   the
re had too great a stait and tho material it was feeding upon was so iin-
allminable that it was found necessary
to ring up an alann with the result
already indicated. There was soon a
large crowd of people ou the spot and
willing hands rendered all the assistance it was in their poiver to ofl'er.
The fire was confined to the window
and although the store was soon
with smoke the tire hose .vas not
culled into action. McPherson A Me-
('amnion had been at great pains to
arrange a handsome display and the
whole of their work Ib entirely destroyed.    The decorations   must  havo
ost them a large amount of money in
addition lo the time they have spent,
all of which has gone up in smoke.
Two laige plate glass windows are
broken and the total loss will probably be iu the neighborhood of (300
which is all covered by Insurance.
The proprietors wish it to be distinctly understood that no blame is   to  be
ttaehed to the electricians who laid
the wires, as everything was tested in
their presence the evening befoie
when everything was all right and no
other reason than the one given above
to been found. Thc action of the
lire brigade in responding so promptly
to the call and the rapidity with
which the Haines were under control
worthy of praise, us without the
assistance of the brigade at that particular time the losses would have
been considerable,

The Miner would be glad to know
who oi what the "disgruntled element" of Nelson consists of. It has
been accused of being the organ of
that "element," and so often that
it has the curiostity at last to Inquire. We recognise that It is always better that an organ should
know what it is an organ of. When
it was accused cf being the organ of
the Liberals, and then of the Con-
Bdrvatives, and then of.Turneri6in,and
then of the C. l\ E., and the Great
Northern, and the Crow's Nest, and
of the Mine Owners, nnd of one or two
dozen other corporations or interests,
it always kne~> where it was supposed to stand; but il is wholly nt a
loss in its effort to looate the "disgruntled element" of Nelson. Would
The Tribune please tell us? It must
know, for it is it that says The Miner
is its organ. Are the "disgruntled"
people of the city those unfortunates
who cannot approve of the manners
and methods of that distinguished
person wbo is known as editor of The
Tribune'.' To disagree with him io to
be "disgruntled" indeed, no doubt,
but wc did Dot know they had been
bunched into an "element" and that
the ;)clenient" had marie The Miner
its organ. We think the matter will
bear explanation. Who or what is
this "disgruntled element " 1
Pending a reply, we pass on to the
other statement that this "element"
���t'-'s "disgruntled-eleuient" ��� is will-
pa"!' t tho electric light franchise
u_���t s_. be sold to a monopoly company.
Of course, Dot knowing of whom or
what the "element" consists, The
Miner cannot say what H is willing
or unwilling to do. Thc statement
bears the stamp of absurdity on the
face of it; in fact,under ordinary conditions it is a kind of statement which
only an absurd person could make.
Hut it is possible it is the "element" that is absurd, and to resolve
the doubt we beg The Tribune will
hurry with Its explanation. Speaking for itself, however, The Miner
would say that it would not willingly
have the City make anv disposition of
its e'ectric franchise that was not to
the undoubted advantage of the people
in general. The Miner, unlike 'the
Tribune and its editor, has no personal schemes to advance, no jobs to
put through, in connection with this
or any other municipal matter of any
kind whatever.
We look forward to the time when
Nelson will be a much larger town
than it is today. The electric sen ice
we have now is not sullicient for present requirements. It cannot even
light the City of today, to say nothing
of motive power. If we had cheap
motive power, it would help the
growth of Nelson, and the growth of
Nelson is what every man of us should
work for. If the City can supply
itself with ample light, aud also furnish power as required, at an expense
as low as can be supplied otherwise,
by all means let it do so. Hut we hope
it is not fool enough to hang on to
an antiquated and imperfect system
merely because it happens to te a
child of Jchn Houston's. Nelson requires the best electric service it can
obtain, whether as the result of its
own efforts or at the hands of others.
That, in a word, is the position of
The Miner. It has ' nothing to do
with, and knows nothing of, companies that are endeavoring to obtain a
monopoly of electric light, or electric power, or electric anything else.
It leaves to the lion, member for
Nelson the distinction of associating
with, and embracing, and being embraced bj, companies that are on the
run   for monopolies.

It is remarkable, tbe curious and
different ways coffee will affect the
human body. A little lady in Ileiki-
mer, N. Y., hud an experience that
may happen to others, but it is not
She says, "I am impressed with the
desire, not only to thank you personally for relief, but realize that others
may have tbe same distressing symptoms without thinking of tlie cause.
When I would drop asleep I would
seem to receive a perfect electric
Bliock from feet to head through every
nerve of my body. It was dreadful.
I would finally become so feverish
and exhausted with this horror repeated over aud over each time I fell
asleep, that I was obliged to force
myself to stay awake, actually not
daring to think of rest.
After one such horrible night,
which I shall never forget, I arose
completely worn out with ray night's
battle, but with a firm res dve to set
aside my morning cup of coffee, as
I hegan to believe that was the cause
of my trouble,
I had some Postum Food Coffee
made according to directions, I took
another cup at teatime. At night, to
my groat surprise,] fell quietly usleep
and rested well all night. It seems incredible after only one day's use, but
it is positively a   truthful  statement.
1 have persisted in tlie use of Postum until now my nervous system is
in perfect condition.
Husband showed some signs of coffee
poisoning, sum as stomach trouble
and other symptoms, so he left off the
coffee and drinks Postum with me.
This has improved his health, nnd
he says he likes Postum better than be
did the old fashioned coffee.
We might bave been saved our tron

coffee, but wo were ignorant as are
thousands of others, and had to learn

It was reported yesterday that the
bridgemen from Fort William to
Moosejaw bad gone out, and chat two
train crews and conductors stopped ut
Winnipeg, refusing to take ; trains
over the track between Brandon and
Winnipeg in its present condition.
On tbe Okanagan branch the bridge-
men have also gone out and trains
now travel very slowly between Sic-
aroous and Okanagon, making sonie-
of the track ahead before running on
it. The strain becomes more acute
every day,and the men say that it will
be impossible for the company to run
trains over some sections of the iine
any longer as the continued wet
weather, no repairing done to many
plaees where a little work _at first
would have made all secure, has left
many soft places everywhere.
