RAILROAD IN
KETTLE RIVER
The Question of Government
Ownership Rubbed Into
Martin.
(SPECIAL TO THE .IIN_.Il.)
Victoria, May 7.���The second reading of the loan bill to provide five
mill'ons for railways was debuted today. Curtis moved a vote of want of
confidence in the government in
amendment owing to the government's
failure to curry on theConst-Kootenay
road as a government work. The
amendment was framed to put Martin,
Brown, Mclnnes and other members
of the opposition, who were returned
on the policy of government ownership of railways, but who aro supporting the government on the railway bill, in an anomalous position.
All the members mentioned voted
against the amendment, Mclnnes
holding that instead o' it being want
of confidence in the government, it
was want of confidence in the elector
ate who manifested by their votes last
election that thoy wanted nothing to
do with government ownership. Hawthornthwaite, who supported the
amendment twitted Martin on living
to propogate the theory of government
ownership and on the first opportunity offered to vote for it, opposing the
principle. Only Curtis, Gilmour,
Hawthornthwaite and E. C. Smith
supported the amendment.
Mclnnes' resolution making the
office of agent general terminable by
the government for cause waH defeat:
ed, rendering th_~occnira.lt of the post,
independent of the government unless
presented avitli an address praying
for his removal by the legislature.
Debate on tlie railway bill continued till the house rose at 11 o'clock.
Capt. Ulance nf the steamer Maude
which arrived this morning from
Ladysmilli, states that when pulling
out of that port this morning about
1 o'clock, lie saw the littlo steamer
Bessie of this port go|ng"up in flames.
The Bessie was anelioted nut in the
stream some distance. She wu. owned by her skipper, T. VV. Fletcher,
and was valued at about $.,r>()0. The
craft was engaged in towing.
The attitude of Martin on the railway bill has at. Inst been defined beyond doubt. Iu debate today on the
second leading Martin said that the
bill, although not involving government ownership, went so far in that
direction that he would support it.
He further intimated that failing gov.
eminent ownership there waa only
one railway in the province that
ccull build the line aud that road
was the C. P. R. lie denied that the
V. V. & E. had any corporate existence and oven if the bonus was given
them they would simply sell out to
the C. P. R. Martin added that the
province was completely in the power
of the 0. P. It. in that respect but
that if the control of rates by government was conceded this insured all
the competition that was required.
He said he did not believe the C. P.
It. would accept the terms and thus
force the very thing they wanted to
see happen, viz., the)) government being compelled to undcitiike the Coast -
Kootenay line ns a government work.
Martin In the role of a C. P. R. ad-
vocato excited the wonder of the
liouse. Hull, Tat low,, and McPhillips,
all government supporters, declared
for competition.
Mellride replied briefly for tho government. Ho said the government
had drafted the bill and would carry
it through without the opposition's
assistance. Tlie second reading passed, Hawthornthwaite, Curtis and E.
Smith voting nay.
DEPORTED THE CIIINKS-
A couple of Chinamen who were
Rent from Nelson to Waneta recently,
had an experience which probably
proved satisfactory to the Chinamen
themselves, and will obviously meet
the approval of the anti-Mongolians
of B. C. They were in the employ of
t'red Adie of Waneta. About three
weeks after their arrival they went
out for a walk, and without being
aware of the fact, accidentally strayed across the international boundary.
They were immediately arrested and
taken to Northport for trial, but notwithstanding all the efforts.their employer could exercise for their release,
supported by the pleadings of a solicitor engaged by Mr. Adie, they were
given free transportation back to
China.

After receiving instructions in regard to the nature of the evidence
offered in the criminal cases aud their
action in regard thereto, the grand
jury returned and His Lordship heard

argued the question for the plaintiff.
The registrar then called the witnesses for the prosecution and defense in

(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Ottawa, May 7.���Before the railway committee today the act to incorporate the Kamloops A Atlin railway
comihtoy was reported.
Th.' two rival bills to incorporate
the Kettle River Volley company were
taken up together. John E. WcCrea
of Rossland, one of the applicants of
the first bill addressed the .ommittee
and stated that the parties to the
second bill had never applied for a
charter until last session although
they clalmd to be the same persons
who songht the Corbln charter to
show that tbe present parties applying for legislation had no connecetion
with Mr. Corbln. In other words,
his opponents had nopiior claims over
his company, who were Rossland capitalists.
,0. Macdonald of Toronto wbb then
heard in behalf of his company. He
said that incorporaters of bis company
were Hon. J. R. Stratton; Chas.
Kloeffer, Guelph; T. P. Coffee, Toronto; Walter Mills,Ingersoll and others.
He said that his company had already
made contracts for ore with the mines
of Republic camp to be connected
with the Grand Forks smelter. His
company were__the legitimate successors of Mr. Corbin.
Mr. Blair stated that be had so objections to one of the bills passing.
Mr. J. F. Stratton said that all his
company wanted was power to cross
the international boundary line at
Carson. They bad a charter from
the United States to the boundary at
this point and for part of the route
on the Canadian side from the British
Columbia legislature.
The committee threw out the McCrea bill and adopted the Macdonald
second bill. The company has two
years to start and finish the road. A
clause was left in the bill giving the
government power to control the
rates.
In the supreme court today in the
West Durham election case, an appeal was laid. After hearing Mr.Mcpherson for the appellant, the court,
without calling on Mr. Aylesworth,
K. C, for the respondent, dismissed
the appeal with costs and the case is
to go to trial. The Proveneher election case was settled, each party paying his own costs.
All afternoon and the greater part
of the evening was taken up in the
liouse today with another discussion
on the Valleyfield strike. Monk
promised affidavits to sustain the
statements be made against King,
deputy minister of tabor, or a retraction if he could not prove them. He
made a long speech today but produced neither. Tartc, Rulph Smith,
Sutherland und Logun demanded an
apology to King, aud it not being
forthcoming, Sutherland read un afti-
davit from King declaring Monk's
statement to be false and untrue.
Horden said King's statement would
be satisfactory to him, still Monk
made no retraction. The liouse then
went into supply on   supplementaries.
THE SPARRING CONTEST
BURNS AND GOFF_ IN   SPLENDID
FORM FOR THE TWENTY
ROUND GO.
MANAGER     ARMSTRONG     TALKS
OF THE EXHIBITION-WILL BE
ON ITS MERITS.
The arrangements for the Goff-Burns
glove contest at the opera house on
Friday night aie practically com
plete, only one or two details requiring adjustment before the men go into
the ring. There seems to be no reason to disbelieve the statemert of Manager Billy Armstrong that the exhibition will be the fastest and cleanest
exhibition   ever   given in the   Nelson
lent condition and both are animated
by the confidence that the 8(100 deposited when the articles were signed in
ns good as in their respective ponkctB.
It appears to be about even up as to
which of the men is entitled to odds
in betting. Burns has trained faithfully with his .pairing partner
George Lawler and will have a stone
or more the best of lua opponent in
weight. On the other band Goff is
in equally good form and as he is regarded as the most scientific boxer of
the two his friends.who are numerous
in Nelson, believe that he will get
away with the bigger man.
Tbe opera house has been finally engaged for the exhibition uud the proceedings are timed to start at 8:45,
when the first of the preliminary bouts
will come off. It has not been arranged how these will be brought off,
but probably Billy Armstrong, who
won the lightweight championship of
the province by defeating King, the
holder of the honor at Rossland, will
spar several rounds with Dannie Dean
of Greenwood, whose ability with the
gloves is well known in the Boundary.
Set-tos between two pairs of local
scrappers are likely to be put on.
The Rossland aod Boundary contingent, which is confidently expected to
number over 100, will arrive on a
special train and will be met at the
depot by the Rocky Mountain Rangers
band. When the arrivals are comfortably located in the section of the
opera house reset ved for their accommodation, the Burns-Golf mill will
be started. The contest will be limited
to twenty rounds under Marquis of
Queensbury rules and tfttll live-ounce
gloves. Burns' chief second will be
George Lawler, his sparring partner,
and Bob Hodge, of Wallace, Idaho,
will probably be in Golf's corner.
The scenery will be cleared off the
stage and the ring, i!_ feet square
with padded posts, will be sb located
tbat a first class view of everything
transpiring within the rcpes can be
had from any part of tho house.
Referring to the contest yesterday
Manager Armstrong said: "TUis exhibition will be the best thing of the
kind ever seen in Nelson. Burns and
Goff came together at Rossland and
the sportsmen of that city together
with the Nelsonites who witnessed
the affah were delighted. The Rossland Athletic club, a bona fide organisation with fifteen directors comprising prominent business and profes
sional men, was anxious to have the
return match there, but the Nelson
people made their offer first and it
was concluded to let Nelson have it in
the hope thut an interest in sports
might be aroused that would ultimately lead to the establishment of a ball
team here for this season, I was engaged to manage the affair and am
on a month's leave of absence from the
Rossland club for this purpose. I
might state for the benefit of a few
parties that this contest will be
brought off strictly on its merits.
Neither Burns, Goff nor myself could
afford to be mixed up in anything
approaching the shady. My personal
reputation is my stock in trade and
in self proctection I cannot be connected with- anything that would
affect my standing with, the directors
of the club for which I work. Burns
and Goff arejnot "freight train" box-
eis. Both men have long records in
the ring and their history is clean
from start to finish. They are not
out for the purse aud the best man
will take 't."

NELSON'S
BIG D/LY
First of July to Be Celebrated
Gloriously as in Former
Years.
STRIKE ON WONDERFUL.
The ledge on the Wonderful, in the
Slocan, has been found in tho tunnel
at a depth of ISO feet. It had evidently been opened and drifted upon
by workmen under some former management, but for some unknown reason they abandoned the drift and fill-
id it with stone. W. W. Warner,
who leased the mine recently,excavated the drift and found a two-foot vein
assaying 115 ounces in silver and 70
per cent lead.
EDWARDS LECKIE RESIGNS.
Major R. G. Edwards Leckie has resigned from the management of the
Republic company. He has a number of northwestern mining interests
ou hand which will take ull his time,
and he has given up his connection
with the Republic in order to look
after them. Before leaving thc mine
Majcr Leckie arranged a plan of development which is being carried forward under the direction of Superintendent Casey. Forty men are employed, and they arc sloping 100 tons
of ore daily.    Major Leckie expects to
camp.    Both of the men are in  excel-j make his headquarters in Spokane.
This morning at !l o'clock the fifteenth session of the Britisli Columbia conference of the Methodist
church will open in the Methodist
church In this city. The first feature
of the conference will be the meeting
of the stationing committee, the initial draft of which will be made public
on Friday. Ministerial and lay delegates are arriving on every train
and boat and by Friday morning-vhen
the work of the conference really begins the full quota of delegates will
be in attendance.
Several eminent ministers will be in
attendance,   among   these   being Rev.
Elliot S.  Rowe of Victoriu, B. C.,who
will address a   mass   meeting   in   the
opera house on   Sunday afternoon, on
"The   Church   and   the Social   Problem."    The   address   is   specially arranged   with a view   to   bringing the
church into more active  and   tangible
contact with the   great   and   growing
quetlons   of   the day.    The   reverend
gentleman is well'known as  a   social
reformer, and single tax advocate, and
these combined wish his  well   known
oratorical powers will   doubtless command for him a full house.   Rev. Goro
Eaburagi, M. A., is a converted   Japanese minister,    whose, experience   of
life in Japan and   his   work amongst
the Japanese, entitle   him   to   be  re-
|gar>led as an authority on   these questions.    Not less important or interesting than either   of   the above is   Rev.
Dr.  Carman, said   to   be   one   of   the
most eminent and gifted clergymen in
Canada, Who will preach   the   couter-
ence sermon on Friday   evening,   and
in the opera house   on   Sunday   evening.    Rev. Mr.    Whittington, M.   A.,
B. Sc, president ot the B. C.    conference, will preach in tbe opera liouse on
Sunday morning  und the various pulpits of   the city   will be   occupied by
visiting ministers, announcements   of
which   will be   given   later,    Messrs.
Smith   and     Miller,   "the     Emerald
Duet," will be   in  attendance at   the
Sunday meetings and will   practically
have   charge   of   the musical part   of
the services.
Of the 70 ministeriul delegates belonging to the B. C. conference only
forty have so far signified their intention to be in attendance. The lay d<;l-
egates were elected last week, but the
list of names has not been received,
though it is expected that there will

lendnnce. Subjoined Is the list of

CONTINUE HALF HOLIDAY
RETAIL     GROCERS     MET      LAST
NIGHT AND   DECIDED UNANIMOUSLY   TO CLOSE.
ALL    AGREED    THE     IDEA    WAS
DESIRABLE AND   WILL TRY
TO RETAIN IT. -I      i ,
The retail grocers of thc city met
last evening in the union hall, for
the purpose of discussing the question
of early closing and the Thursday
afternoon holiday. The meeting was
a fairly representative one and the
proceedings were practically unanimous. T. J. Soaolan was elected to
the chair, and on a vote being taken
it was unanimously decided to stand
by thc ngrement to close their stores
at 7 o'clock in the evening except Saturday, and to stap.d by the half holiday on Thursday afteroon..
Some difficulty has been experienced
with the small grocers, hut steps ar#
being taken to overcome this difficult
ty, by waiting upon the proprietors
who are causing the difficulty and
endeavoring to procure their support
for a general observance of the early
closing movement. Proprietors and
clerks are practically unanimous in
their desire for a surcease from labor
at least once u week, and judging by
the unanimity manifested in the proceedings at their meeting last evening
the rumors floating around town regarding the collapse of the movement
have no foundation in so far as the
Nelson retail grocers are concerned.
The meeting adjourned to meet al
an early date for the purpose of organising a retail grocer's association,

Last night a well attended meetii g
was held in the board of trade rocms,
for the purpose of organization.
Mayor Fletcher was elected permanent chairman, II. K, Cameron, secretary, and B. lleathcote, treasurer. The
sports wi'l partake largely of the
character of those of previous yeais,
and given the requisite weather conditions, it will undoubtedly be the
great holiday of the year. Unlike
(many Canadian towns Nelson enjoys
facilities for a big gala day which
are possessed by few towns of its size
and every effort will be made to make
the day one long to be remembered.
Strong and representative committees
have been drafted to arrange the programme and conduct the ceremonies,
and by the hearty co-operation of the
public the proceedings will eclipse
every preceeding one. The boat races
will be held on Monday and the water
carnival on Tuesday, to conclude
with a grand pyrotechnic display in
the evening. There will be water
sports of various kinds, the usual Caledonian games and the customs! y
trade.' procession, which in previous
years has been one of the features of
the occasion.
An effort will be made to
decorate the city and every business
place, residence and citizen is expected to wear on those days its best appearance. The programme of sports
with the list of prizes will be arranged immediately and issued as quickly
as is possible to do so.

The Nelson Miner
THE NEW LEADER.
Canadians of all classes and of all
parties are interested in the character
of their political leaders, for under
our sjstem of Parliamentary government it is possible for any one of
them to word his way to the position
of Premier. After the defeat of Sir
Charles Tupper the Conservatives of
the Dominion were left without a
leader. Sir Charles was too old to
make it worth while to seek a new
constituency, and it therefore became
necessary to pick on some one else. It
was the fashion to say that there was
no difficult; in making a selection, us
the party was rich in aale men. Hut
as a matter of fact the party was not
rich in able men; with Sir Cha'-le.
uud Mr. Foster out, it has not been so
poor since Confederation. There was a
man from Halifax who had served
through the last Parliament, on whom
attention had been directed He bad
not thrust himself forward, but tbe
shrewd ones thought they detected In
him the qualities necessary in a leader. In the end this Mr. Borden was
chosen. Perhaps to four-fifths of the
Canadian people he was not known
even by name. It was with a modesty which augured well that he consented to accept the trying duties and
heavy responsibility of the position,
aod now towaids the ojose of the
session his followers are enabled to
come to 6ome i-ort of intelligent judgment us to his capabilities. That
judgment is distinctly favorable." Mr.
Boi den is proving himself in every respect deserving the great confidence
leposed in hitn. Tho Miner will be
excused for taking a more than ordinary interest in his character and
record, as it was the first newspaper
in Canada to suggest his name us that
of leader.
He was entertained at a banquet a
few night ago. It was purely a party
affair, of course, and in responding
to the toast of his health, Mr, Borden
of necessity made a party speech. But
it was in excellent taste, and of a
character to show that should the fortunes of political war bring him to the
top Canada will have a 'Premier who
will do honor to the postion. That is
something on which Canadians of alt
parties are entitled to congratulate
themselves. One short extract froth
his speech will reveal a side of his
character that will prove gratifying
to every good citizen: "Whatever
may have been said by some of the
newspapers of this country, whatever
stray words may have been uttered,
I challenge denial of this, that the
Liberal-Conservative party as a whole
had, and has, no desire to raise or
countenance
ance, any cry of race or of oreetL |l
venture to think I am speaking the
sentiments of the party when I say
that if it were open to the Liberal-
Conservative party in Canada tomorrow to attain to power by raising that
cry in this country, the Liberal-
Conservative purty would be false to
its traditions,false to everything that
is true, if it should seek to-avail ft-
self of that principle, More than thai,
I may say that if the Liberal-Conservative party should see any other pariy
iu this country seeking to obtain Or
to retain power by raising tlie cry bf
race or creed, nevertheless it wouid
hold its hand, and suffer injustice
in this country rather than do anything that would bring to pass in Cap-
ada a cleavage between race or creed
in Canada, 1 believe in saying this I
am speaking no idle words, at all
events they are words which I fuljy
believe, and to which I will adhere.
And when the Liberal-Conseravtlfre
party in this country proposes jo
adopt any other policy with regard io
the unity of races and creeds on political lines, other than those I have
suggested,then I shall be glad to band
back to the party the trust whiuh
they wero good enough to repose in
me in the mouth of February last."
lioin.fi tu Intuit their Judgimint. ||
they believe the work should be entrusted to a company that oould and
would give competition, they should
enter into a contract at once and have
it ratified before prorogation.
There are two exce'lent reasons for
this course, aside altogether from the
question of public policy. There is a
very earnest demand for a Coast-Kootenay railway, a demand that may
easily be heard all along the proposed
line. The Government recognises the
necessity for It by undertaking to provide for its construction. Unless the
contract is made at once, there is danger that one entire season will be lost
in.beginning operations, and for a
road, that is necessary that would be a
deplorable waste of opportunity. Another reason is that the country will
not view with indifference the spectacle of the ��� Legislature assembling in
special session, merely to ratify an
agreement that could as easily have
been made last week as it can be next
week or next month. A special session will mean a serious demand on
the public purse, tbe more especially
as members have thought themselves
justified in increasing their indemnity
by the very substantial sum of two
hundred dollars all around. This
would be rather expensive trifling
with so; simple a matter as a railway
contract. The House will do better if
it settles this question one way or the
other   befoie it prorogues.
Before the Oriental Commission the
Collector of Customs at Vancouver
testified that there had been no falling
off in tbe Immigration of Chinese during the four months of the increased
tax. The British Columbia members
at Ottawa wbo maintained that the
paltry increase of 850 in the head
tax would bave little if any effect in
checking the Chinese aie supported by
the actual facts as developed.
Mr. J. C. Brown, of New Westminster, by accepting the Government's
railway policy as elucidated in their
Loan Bill, is qualifying for the position of Finance Minister, soon to be
'-Vtcaui by the appointment of Mr.
"-urner as Agent-General in London.
And the general, impression is that
he will fill the ofiice with credit to
himself and advantage to the Governments These sudden conversions are
to be expected as long as the hybrid
variety of politics affected at Victoria
H5= suffered to prevail.
Morally or materially, the town
will take no hurt fiom the action of
the four Aldermen who voted to pro-
hlblt'Sunday amusements on the recreation grounds. It was a step with
which The- Miner is in entire sympathy, not because it believes there is
and   will   uot counten-l^nytb'il?  Immoral in a  Sunday  ball
UNNECESSARY EXPENSE.
brav
effort   Is   to   be-made id
Legislature. One of the things nil
ready done is to increase the itidem
11 ity of me-nliers by two hundred dollars. It has been suggested that Until
action will not be taken on tho most
important matter of the Coast-Koote
nay railway; that tlie Government
will be left with power to make u contract if they see fit, and that later on
the Legislaturev>ill.be convoked to ratify it. If there were any apparent,
valid reasons for this course,the country would probably offer uo objection.
But as far as the country can see or
understand, tlie reasons arc all iu favor of immediate and definite action.
If the Goverument, presuming on
the support of the House, are in fain of buildiiu tllei road ��s a Provincial work, they should deelarethelr
polio; and proceed to carry it out. If
they believe that the public interest
would best be served by passing the
franchise and sub��idy over to the Can-
aiian Pacific Company, they should
have the courage to say so and ask the
I  lM_uAMkufta,_u_CuAu_._l___S,_l
but because it believes that
the grounds are too public and that
noisy games- on a Sunday should not
be conducted under the noses of a
large and respectable portion of the
community who have a conscientious
distaste for tbe practice. Even prejudices, are to be respected, and this is
a prejudice that is recognized as a
privileged-one by Anglo-Saxon subjects in every quarter of the empire.
There Is no light more dear to your
true Britisher than his right to a
quiet Sunday; let those who want a
noisy one go off by themselves and
have it.
Notwithstanding the   Province is of
age, politicul agitation is as necessary
to the happiness of the people of Man
itoba today as ever it was.    From the
day's of Farmers' -Union' conspiracies
to annex the Province to   the   United
States   down   to    the   present   time
scarcely a year   has  passed  in whicli
they have not boen   boiling   with ex
citement.   For the last   two   months
the Province has-been in a   condition
of mental;rioting over a. railway deal
entered   ��� into   by.   the    Government
and  Legislature   with   the   Canadian
Northern Company���a  very   excellent
deal, that is certain to  prove of great
'public advantage.    It requires valida
tory legislation at Ottawa, and   to defeat' this   tlie - agitators  have devoted
all tbeir strength- of   mind and lung

Sine, the beginning of the Boer wn
there have been three Governments in
power in- British.Columbia. That war
seriously disarranged mining operations In South Africa for the time,
and put a stop to the investment of
much mining cap!tal. Here was Brit
ish Columbia's,., opportunity. The
great complaint has been that foreign
capital was, not coming in fast
enough, -Did the Governments referred
to do all thoy could, or all that was
possible, to attract thut capital'.' We
are- afraid: the-judgment of the public
would be that they not only failed in
tbe proper, encouragement of foreign
investments, but in their legislation
did much to frignten them off. This
Province is sorely in need of Governments that will take advantage of
opportunities that offer, and that will

SEVEN YEARS   IN BED.
'Will wonders ever cease?" inquire the friends of Mrs. L. Pease, of
Lawrence. Kan. They knew she had
been unable to leave her bed in seven
years on account of kidney and liver trouble, nervous prostration and
general debility; but "Three bottles
of Electric Bitters enabled me to
walk," he writes, "und in three
months I felt like a new person,"

QUESTION   ANSWERED.
Yes, August Flower still has the largest sale of any medicine in the civilized world. Your mothers and grandmothers never thought of using any
thing else for Indigestion or Biliousness. Doctors were scarce, and they
seldom heard of Appendicitis, Nervous
Prostration or Heart fa''ure, etc.
They used AuguBt Flower to clean out
the system and stop fermentation of
undigested food, regulate the action

NIGHT LUNCHEON.
AH  Ul.bl il of llie   Ili^lil  Kind or Food.
The difference brought about by
the use of well selected food, as compared with ordinary food, is well
sliown in the experience of a girl attending high school and boarding
Ucrself
She says: "My housekeeping
e impelled early rising, nnd I used lo
bjeoine very sleepy over my books.
To keep awake, 1 resorted to tbe use
of strong coffee, and in a short time
I began to have a dull, stupid feeling.
No appetite, but a feeling of 'goneness.' I realized that I must eat
something or faint in the class room.
I would wash down a little breakfast
with another cup of coffee.
1 begau growing thin,pale and nerv
ous, and made very unsatisfactory ad
vancement in my   studies.      One   da$Jtn0 wide open Sunday saloon now ram-
the good wife of one ofj our professors
asko-l me if I felt well, as I appeared
so weak and nervous. Between my
sobs 1 managed to relate my woes. She
Siw where the trouble lay, and advised me to leave oil' tea and coffee and
take up Postum Food Coil'ee and Grape
Nuts Food.
I followed her advice and found the
Postum a delicious beverage, and the
lirape-Nuts just what I wanted. So
my breakfast consisted of a little
fruit, u saucer of lirape-Nuts, and a
cup of Postum, an ideal breakfast.
If, at night,' I felt the need of
something to eat before retiring, J
ate a little Crape-Nuts.
My head grew clearer my cheeks
rosy, and I gained so rapidly in
bcnllli that all my acquaintances remarked upon it"
There is a reason; for both Postum
and Grape-Nuts contain the elements
from Nature's store liouse that the
body uses to rebuild the bruin and
nerve centers throughout. These
wondeiful food elements are presented
in such a fascinating form that users
stick to them year after year, and
very greatly to their benefit. The

COMMUNICATIONS
ABOUT SUNDAY GAMES.
Editor Miner,���The thanks of the
tolerant section of this community
are due to the three minority aldermen who voted against the Hamilton
motion on the question of ball games
at the recreation grounds on aSundays.
No amount of idle talk will alter the
firm conviction held by n large number that this is a deliberate attempt
on the part of the Lord's Bay Alliance
to drive its fanatical wedge into the
public affairs of this city and may be
considered as a foreruner of a further
attempt to curtail the privileges of
the individual as soon as conditions
are favorable.
Boes it occur to the majority aldermen who voted for the motion that in
their zeal for the moral wellare of
all, they are overlooking causes infinitely more detrimental to old and
young alike, than these dreadful Sunday games? Does it occur to them
that if they aie so eager for the moral
cleanliness of Nelsm, thit thero are
places in our midst whicli require to
bo blotted out a thousand times more
urgently than innocent ball games
on a Sabbath afternoon? May one ask
theke gentlemen   if they   countenance
pant and fully equipped with the latest side door appliances? Or the
demoralizing influences of the faro
and other gaining tables backed by
the usual accompianment of tin horn
gamblers imported for the occasion.
Or if they have made personal efforts
to investigate a disgraceful .hooting
affray that happened some short time
back in one of tbe prominent saloons
and which has quickly merged into
unrecorded histoiy? Or further still.
aie they aware of the degrading influences that characterize a certain
saloon where obscenity in the shape
of photos and penny-in the-slot-peeps
are calculated to do more barm to a
youth in five minutes than if lie played ball every Sunday of his life.
These matters call for action a gieat
deal more than raising tbis ridiculous disturbance over the recreation
ground? 011 Sunday. But with magnificent inconsistency the "reform
quartette" practically endorses the
removal of what it thinks a dreadful
moral sore of Sunday ball outside the
city limits at Fnirview, and haying
accomplished tbis would no doubt consider it bad been intrumentnl in
sending many a dear child to the Sunday school fold.
And one   may   well   ask   further���
