Council Order Police to Confiscate
Used on Sidewalks.
At the regular meeting of the city

importance was transacted. The
minutes of the special and regular
meetings held last week were read
and adopted.
A petition for the layii.g of a sidewalk on Park street from Silica street
to Carbonate was left to the city engineer to make a report as to the probable cost of tbe same. A letter from

A diseussiou then followed as to
the best means of preventing the
children of the city from coasting on
the sidewalks ot any of the streets,
and a few of the more frequented
roadway,?. The fact that although
there had only been two days this
winter on which such coasting was
possible yet two serious accidents had
occurred last winter from thc same
cause showed that stringent measures
would have to be taken to prevent
more accidents occurring. It waB decided to issne instructions to the
police to confiscate tbe sleight of any
children using the sidewalks on any
of the forbidden roudB for tins purpose. Yesterday a number of people

Much   Development Work in Progress
���An Immense Copper Deposit.
Fred C. Elliott, baristei, of Trout
Lake City, who was in Nelson yesterday, states that there is considerable
work going on among the mines in
that vicinity. The Silver Cup owned
by the Sunshine mines, is working 43
men. About 200 tons of ore will be
taken down to thc landing for shipment before navigation closes on the
northwest arm of Arrow Lake. After
that quantity is taken out the remainder will be staled in a warehouse the
C.P.R.bas built at the lake. The company expects to take out 1,500 tons
ibis winter. On the Nettie L. a simi
lar quantity will be taken out and
about 00 men will be kept busy getting out ore and doiug development
work. The Beatrice, the Horseshoe
and Ihe Rnflleu Grouse will each
make another shipment this winter.
On tlie Riilllctil Grouse a new strike of
14 inches of grey copper has been
made. The ore will assay 1,500
ounces to the ton. Mr. Pool has made
a splendid strike on the Kathleen
group owned by the Great Western
Mining c-impany. A ledge of eight
inches of grey copper was uncovered
and has been traced through one claim
and pa>t of another. The Senorita,on
Canyon oreek, is being developed and
in the tunnel a good chute of ore has
been struck. The Lardeau Valley
Mining company will pursue development work all winter on its property
or Tenderfoot creek. The Mountain
Lion company, which is composed of
Minneapolis people, kas struck 12
inches of clean ore in the American
claim near Gerrard, the C. P. R.
townsite at the foot of the lake. The
Black Warriot is also another promising claim in course of development
These arc only a few of the better
known claims ��n which wjrk is being
done. There is also a great deal of
work, Mr. Elliott said, being done
going on ou properties up Duncan
river, chief among whieh are thc
Primrose, Old Gold, Guinea Gold and
Lardo-Duncan companies. On tbe two
first named some very tich ore bas
been got out while tho body is si
large that what is taken out in de
velopraent has assumed such proportions tbat it will have to be packed 18
miles to market so ss to make way
for what is taken out as work advances. That part of the country is
much in   need ot a railway.
Mr. Elliott came down particularly
on business regarding the Stella group
of 27 claims on Pool creek. This
group has an immense lead of copper,
bornite and grey copper, in a quartz
and calcite gangue. Picked specimens
have given assays of 00 per cent, copper and rock which to the naked eye
has no appearance of conta ining any
copper assays 4 per cent, and over.
The outcrop is apparently a mountain
ot copper, the showing oa thc surface
is about 2,000 feet wide and has been
traced through all tbe claims of the
group. It is such a very large showing that a considerable sum of money
will require to be expended before the
valuo of the propeity can be ascertained even approximately. Some

The matter oame up in the form ot
a resolution presented by President
Gompers, John O. Dernal and Thomas
F. Tracey, ofthe Cigarmakers' union
and was referred to the committee on
laoe��. It denounced a certain com
pany for making cigars by child labor
and machinery and called on the federation to assist in the unionizing of
the various plants of the company.
The committee reported the resolution
back with tbe recommendation that
the word "machinery" be struck out
and the resolution was adopte.1. The
discussion promised to he very lengthy
but the moving of tbe previous question quickly ended the debate and the
resolution with the word "machinery" struck out, was adopted as
The Metal tradeB' federaion after
a series of meetings finally organized
today by electing officers. The following officers were elected: President, E. J. Lynch,New York,national
president of tbe Metal Polishers; vice-

President Gompers and several members of the executive council addressed a mass meeting at Wilkesbarre
cruiser. The minister of the Argentine republic at Chili and tbe Chilian
minister if fore'gn affairs, are still in
conference and it is fully believed j
they will come to terms in the matter
of the dispute between the two
countries. Public feeling here is perfectly tranquil.
Action  Brought Against   the  Owners
of the Slocan Star for $500,000.
A rather Interesting motion will be
heard in Rossland by tne chief justice
today in the case of the Star Mining
company vs. the Ilyron N. White company. The defendant company owns
and operates the famous Slocan Star
and Silversmith mining claims, near
Sandon. These claims were located
under what is called the "old" Mineral act, whicli gave the owner the
right to mine any lead outcropping on
its ground. For some time Ihe White
company has been working a vein at
a point within the side lines of the
Heber and Rabbit'n Paw claims which
belong to ihe plaintiff company. The
defendant c'uims that this is a lead
which outcrops in the Silversmith
claim and it is therefore within its
rights in mining It. It came to the
knowledge of the plaintiff that work
was being done within Its Bide lines
and therefore action was commenced
for $500,01)0 for ore unlawfully extracted from Ihe vein which it claims.
The plaintiff also contends that a
porohyry dyke outs off the continuity
of tne vein and as its claims were
located under tbe "new" act, which
gives it everything within the side
lines of its claims,this body of ore belongs to it.
The Star Mining company has recently been developing its property
which has given indications of being
quite valuable, independent of the ore
in dispute.
The motion today will be made by
the plaintiff company for an order
giving it permission to examine the
entire underground working of the
Slocan Slat, to make measurements
and surveys,take samples and to make
any examination considered necessary.
W. A. Macdonald, K. C. and S. S.
Taylor, K. C, went to Rossland last
evening in connection with tbe suit,
the former to appear for Bod well and
Duff for tbe defendant, and the later
for thej plaintiff.

dated November 18tb. the available
stocks are very low and though consumption lias apparently fallen off
this is not likely actually the ease but
what has actually happened is tbat
stucks at the works have been reduced
Speaking generally, of stock as the
Messrs. Lewis say, refined copper continues scarce. Ihe Bio Tinto company is now said to be entirely sold
out for delivery this year. Herman.
French as well aB English wire
drawers have bought largely for delivery this year and next, and but
little is now available for delivery
during the next two months. Electrolytic copper is very scarce in New
York and it would be impossible to
obtain BOO tons for prompt delivery,
The stocks in tbe hands of the Amalgamated C'npi'er company are little in
exceFs of that held separately by the
mining companies before their amalgamation, and usually by consumers,
the latter during some months past
having bought only for immediate
requirements. Public stocks In England and France are nearly 10,000
tons less than twelve months ago, and
the reduction in private stocks must
be very large. The consumption in
the United States this year nas increased about 2ii per cent.and the surplus available for export to Europe
will be very limited.
The consumption in France for the
ten months of 1001 ending October
31st was in round numbers 34,210
tons a decrease of 5,000 tons from
that of the corresponding period of the
previous year but a slight increase
over that of 1809. The consumption in
England was for the same period
04,709 tons, a decrease of 19,000 tons
over 1899, (lei-man consumption
showed n decrease of 10,000 toos from
the corresponding period of 1000 aud
of .1,000 tons from 1899. Stocks in
England show a decrease of 7.889 from
the same period of the previous year
and French stocks of 8,838 tons.
European production for the first
ten months of 1001 showed an increase
of a little less than 0,000 tons while
Ameri.-aii production remained practically stationary. Supplies show an
increase of 4 1-4 per cent, over the
corresponding period of the previous
year while the increase of 1000 over
1800 was 4 1-b per cent. The stock on
hand in England and at Havre on
Nov. ICtli was less than on the first
day of Ihe month and that was lower
than on the first day of any previous
month of 1901.
From these figures it is apparent
that the consumption of copper
though appnrenllj lebs than in 1000
may have in Europe been greater
while in thc United Slates it increased by about 20 per cent. In the
meantime the production showed only
a very light increase. Within the
next two years there    is the fact to be
kept in view that the Canadian-Australia cable has been commenced and
that the cable from the Dolled States
to the Phlllppilnes and thence to
China ami Japan is likely to be an
accomplished fact. These t*o works
will require and immense amount of
topper and ill addition the very rapid
development of the transmission of
electric power will enorotntisly Increase the consumption over the past
two years. Through the, American
mines are capable of producing much
more than they do there is every reason to believe that this increased production will be required to meet the
The present drop in prices looks
like Ibe sucessfnl attempt of spocula-
toiB to knock down the price lhat
tiny may   buy before the copper   goes
ying sky high.
platinum and an effort is being made
tu find it in place. It is a metal of
tha color of silver, but less bright,
lis specific gravity is 20, which maybe increased by heat and pressure to
21.5. It Is harder than iron, undergoes no alteiatinn in air, resista the
acti'-n of acids, is very ductile and
capable of being rolled into thin
plates, but is the heaviest and least
expansilbe of all metals. Ingot platinum is worth $21 an ounce while in
the ore it is valued at 817 per ounce,
accc ling to the assay value. The
Onti io government assay office has
ifsuei a bulletin in which it says that
the value of platinum is not likely
soon to decrease, hence any ore
carrying platinum, capable of being
extracted commercially, is id constant
demand. The rise in the value of the
metal is caused by increased consumption in photi.graphical works, eleitrle
lighting, incandescent lighting mantles heated oy burning gas. Instrument making and various apparatus
made entirely or in part of platinum
and other uses in tbe arta. Platinum,
the bulletin says, is principally found
in the native form,occurring generally
in alluvial sands, associated with
garnets, magnetite, topaz, corundum,
zircon, native gold and other heavy
minerals. I'iatinum metals are found
as small grains or scales of a tin
white color when cleaned with nitric
acid. The scales are generally too fine
to catch the eye. and collect with a
heavy fine sand as streaks of bro^n or
lead colored particles whioh are very
heavy and can be concentrated by
washing with running water or by
panning. Tbe ordinary riffles in a
gold saving sluiceway will not save
all of the platinum metals to be
found in alluvial as some of
the value creeps over and is lost, nor
will the platinum metals is amalgamate with mercury without special
With pure plaliLum at 821 per
ounce it should be sought tor mure

gold. There in said to be considerable plutium in the sands of the
Similkameen river in the Okanogan
country and in a number of other
places in llritish Columbia.
According to the despatches an op'i-
mistic feeling prevails in London in
regard to the South African war. Recently large nnmbers of Boers have
been captured in the Transvaal and
there are well defined rumors of peace
negotiations. The block house system,
inaugurated by Lord Kitchener, is
working satisfactorily aB it was expected that it would. The British
have 42,000 of the Boer forces confined
in military prisons. Besides this the
process of attrition has been in pro
gess for over two years and the Boer
forces must be well worn down by
this time. It may be that the new
blood, whicb Mr. Roderick thought
essential to give a fillip to the operations, will not after all be needed. If
the thud contigent, therefore, is to
share in the glory of the conquest it
should be hurried to the froul for
peace may be declared at any mo
ment. The members of the contingent
would of course ht useful in perfo in
ing police dnty, but the members will
not be of the type that would care for
this kind of work for any great
length of time.
When tho war is over it will be
necessary to maintain a large force in
the disaffected districts for a considerable period, but it is doubtful if the
number now in thc field will be needed. The problem of massing so large
a force at the seat of war was quite a
serious one, and the removal of perhaps one half, or something over 100,
OOlrtroops, to other points in the empire is a task which will lax the
ingenuity and resources of Ihe war
deparlment But as it will have
ample time in which to do this it will
be accomplished with more ease than

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
There is nothing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in tbe worst
cases.   It oures when all else fails.
The Rev. O F. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,
111. .says: "Yonr trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good condition. I oannot
tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, ohained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for teu
years. I despaired of ever being cured,
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you bad overspoken
yourselves, bnt resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial acted like a
charm.   Send me a full size bottle.
Rov, Dr. Morris Wcc.nslcr,
Rabbi of thn Oong. Bnai Israel,
New York, Jan, 3,1901
Dr. Taft Bros. Medicine Co.,
C onUemen: Your Asthmalene is an
excellent remedy for Asthma and Hay
Fever, aud its composition alleviates all
troubles which combine with Asthma.
Its success is astonishing and wonderful.
After having it carefully analyzed, we can state that Asthmalene contains
no opium, morphine, chloroform or ether.    Very truly yours,
Avon Springs, N. Y, Feb. 1, 1901.
Drs. Taft Bros. Medicine On.
Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of yonr Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma, My wife has
been afflcted witb spasmodic asthma for th'- past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 180 th street, New York, 1 at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmaleno.
.My wife commenced taking it about the flrst of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle ber Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently re
commend the medicine to all who are afflicted with this distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D. PHBLPS, M. D.
Dr. Taft Bnos, Medicine Co, Feb. 5,1901.
Gentlemen : I was troubled with Asthma for 22 years. I have tried numerous remedies, bnt they have all failed. I ran aornss yoar advertisement end
started with a trial btttle. I found relief at once. I have since purchased your
full sized bottle, audi am ever grateful. 1 have a family of four children, and
for six years was unable to work. I am now in the best .of health and am doing
business every day.   This testimony you can make such use of as yon see tit.

told me it wns n clear case of coffee
poison nnd if I did not quit I would
never get well. I had to quit in the
hospital and gradually got a little

their many friends and customers for past patronage during the time they have been in business in Nelson.
We propose giving the public generally, a life's opportunity of buying Dry Goods at prices never before
approached in the Kootenays or elsewhere. During the past week our store has daily presented a lively appearance, and we feel satisfied that our many customers went away highly pleased with their bargains. The
startling reductions in every department has been the means of greatly reducing our stock; but we still have
an enormous Stock of Goods to sell, and if Price Breaking can do it,another week will see our fixtures with
less goods on them. _________________________________

Another ridiculous food fad has been
branded by the most competent
authorities. They have dispelled the
silly notion that one kind of food is
needed for brain, another for muscles,
and stilt another for bones. A correct diet will not only nourish a particular part of the body, but it will
sustain every oilier part. Yet, however good your food may be, its nutriment ia destroyed by indigestion cr
dypepsia. You must prepare for their
ppearance or prevent their coming by
aking regular doses of (iteen's August
Flower, the favorite medicine of the
healthy millions. A few doses aids
digestion, stimulates the liver to
healthy action, purines the blood, and
makes you feei buoyant and vigorous.
