Republic   Line   Strives   to
Prevent   a   Crossing.
Galloway and His Accomplice
Will   Receive   Just
Merits.
(SPECIAL TO THU MINER.)
Orand Forks, Dee. 20.���The injunction secured in Victoria that resulted
in the adjournment yesterday of thc
application before the railway com
mitt-ie at Ottawa of the V. V. and E.
railway for permission to construct o
branch line from its main line to
Columbia and Orand Forks was granted at ll.o instance ot the Republic and
Orand Forks railway. It temporarily
r-'striins the V. V. and B. railway
trim crossing; the tracks of the rival
road on Canadian territory. The V.
V. nnd E. meantime bas several hundred men at work on the spur but
will not make any attempt to cross the
trucks of the Republic railway until
the application is dually disposed of
at Ottawa.
In the police court here today Sim
Galloway, of Spokane, was sentenced
to six months at hard labor on a
charge of vagrancy. Be will be removed to the gaol at Nelson, B. C,
tomorrow. He will be tried here on
January 9th bv Judge Leamy un tbe
more serious ohargc of compelling bis
girl wife to enter a disorderly honse
In tins city. Mrs. Galloway has returned to her parents at Spokane.
Mrs. Hammer, alias thc Blue (loose,
the alleged accomplice of Galloway,
will likely be committed for trial tomorrow on a similar charge.
The AlaDama group, near Nelson,
Wash., has resumed its regular shipment of four tons of ore daily to the
Granby smelter.
Joint committees of the city
councils of Grand Forks and Columbia
arc co-operating in appraising the cost
of buiildings and the cost ot their removal from the right ot way of the
proposed V. V. and E. railway spur
into the proposed depot grounds.
Both cities at the request of the company, will adopt a stieet closing
bylaw.
Isaacson, the Finn, who slashed the
throat of a fellow railway laborer
named Dewitt, ai the result of a row
over a game of cards at Russell,
Wash., on Snnday night, and then
escaped, returned on Tuesday and surrendered to the authorities. Tbe condition of Dewitt Is serious. Tbe prisoner lias been removed to Republic
where he will await trial, pending
the outcome of Dewitt's injuries
Until men had been previously employed in the camp of Burns and Jordan, on the line of the Great Northern
extension from Marcus.
The ambitious programme of the
local school board is to ask the government to establish a high school in
Grand Forks as soon as 20 qualified
Pupils, the requisite number required
hy law, are secured. Later on an
effort will be made to affiliate with
an eastern university. In viitue of
'his arrangement advanced pupils
seeking a libera) education will be
enabled to pursue their studies at
home, the time thus spent being accounted as part of the collegiate
course; besides it will prove a great
boo a to those with limited financial
resources. All that will then be required after passing thc college examinations in Grand Forks will be a
final year's course at the university
with whioh the Grand Forks school
may be affiliated.
The Hall Mines smelter, of Nelson,
has just signed a contract for the
delivery of all its matte for treatment
by the new converter of the Granby
smelter. The Mother Lode smelter at
Greenwood made a similar agreement
several weeks ago. The Granby converter, it is expected, will be in
operation not later than the middle of
January, and will have a capacity of
from 100 to 150 tons daily. The only
llritish Columbia reuuotion plant that
haa not yet contracted to eliip its
matte to Orand Forks is the Trail
Kmelter. The Trail product is now
being treated at an eastern converter
under a contract which will expire
within the next five months. As the
Ginnby company cau probably quote a
cheaper rate, there is every reason to
believe that the Trail plant will soon
avail itself of the privilege of having
its matte treated at Grand Foiks. The
converter process simply produces
blister copper, further treatment of
the product in a refinery being necessary to extract the gold and silver
values.
The first carload of matte from the
Hall Mines smelter, Nelson, reached
thc Granby smelter today. The shipments will average 20 tons daily.
The matte will accumulate until the
Granby oonverter begins operations
next month.
R. A. Brown encountered several
spots of sulphide copper ore iu tin
Volcanic tunnel this week. lie i
greatly elated over the strike as this
waa the first occasion he had ever
found copper on the claim, except
upon Ihe surface. Thc tunnel is in
705 feet and Mr. Brown confidently
expects now to strike a big ore chuie
any day.

CHINESE MAKE ATONEMENT.
Official   Funeral   Granted   to   Native
Christians Kiileu in Boxer Uprising.
Pekin. Dec. 20.���The officials of
Tnng Chow have given a remarkable
funeral to a number of native Chris
tians who were massacred last year.
Thu action was taken iu accoidance
with an agreement with the missionaries and the officials by which the
missionaries were to refrain from
demanding the punishment of those
gnilty of murdering the Christians, if
tbe officials would make public atonement for their crimes and Impress the
pcoole with respect lor missionaries
and converts. The funeral procession
traversed the principal streets of the
walled city of Tung Chow. There
were 70 coffins to be interred and
these were followed by hundreds of
men carrying gaudy fureral emolems.
The procession took two hours to
pass the reviewing stand where were
gathered the oity officials, General
Ma, commander ot the Chinese troops,
who besieged Tien Tsin, Mr. CoDger,
American minister to China, and
many American and English missionaries. An immense crowd witnessed
these serviocs at the cemetery.
AMERICAN LYNCHING.
Italian Serate Dismiss Steps to Protect
Subjects in United States.
Rome, Dec. 20 ���In tne senate today
Baron Fava, formerly Italian ambassador at Washington, raised the question of lynobings in the United States
in which he said thero had been a
repetition of giave events and where
the guilty persons had not been discovered. Baron Fava referred to the
suggestion of the late President McKinley after the lynching at Erwin,
Miss., to legislate for the proper protection of foreigners and he alluded to
the high esteem in which the late Mr.
McKinley and the late King Humbert,
both victims of thc assassin, were
held by their iespective countrymen.
Replying to Baron Fava, Sigoar
Prignetti, the foreign minister, said
the Italian government would continue to protest in the hope of obtaining satisfaction against a state of
affairs which constituted an offense
against international treaties. The
government had represented what a
serious thing it was, said Signor
Prignet'i, that the government ol the
United States should declare itself
unable to fulfill its engagement In
conformity with the international
treaties. This representation the
American government had not replied
to in writing but it had admitted that
the Italian claims were well founded
and had promised carefully to consider the question. Minister Prig-
netti slid he agreed with Baron Fava
in his expressed opinion that an indemnity for the lives of Italians
lynched should not te refused, but
that he considered the indemnities
ought not to be regarded as a settlement of lhe crimes committed.

Buenos Ayres, Deo. 20,���In order to
commemorate the foundation of tbe
League of Patriots here tens i f thousands of young men paraded the streets
ye terdav evening cheering for Argentina. The crowds of manifestants,
estimated to have numbeicd as many
as 90,000 persons shouted : No more
diplomatic notes, let ns have war
sooner than that There were also
some cries of Death ta the Chileans
ln this connection it is reported that
Brazil contemplates appropriatng

Sant'ago de Chile, Dec. 20.���Senor
Pertal, the Argentine minister to
Chile, and Senor YaneB, the Chilean
minister of Foreign Affairs, are still
discussing existing mattera between
their respective countries.
News of the excitement in Argentina reoeived here from Buenos Ayres
has not had the slightest effect upon
the   Chilean   people  who   still   take
lags���with great coolnesn and tranquility. The Chilean training ship
General Baquedano, which was recently in the West Indies, has been called
back to Chile. Chilean steamers have
suspended their voyages to San Francisco in order to be ready in case of
necessity for transport duty.
SENATOR HANNA HOPEFUL.
Looks For Permanent Result From
Labor Conference.
Washington, Dec. 20.���Senator
Hanna, chairman of the committee of
30 who has just returned from the
capital and labor conference in New
York, was at the White House today
and talked most hopefully of the results of the conference.
I consider the conference, said be,
the greatest step ever taken for the
speedy settlement of disputes arising
between labor and capital. The organization of capital, which has come
to stay, was an evolution which was
naturally proceeded by the organization of labor, which also has come to
tay.and tbe concentration of interests
of the to sides which should be identified, not hostile, in the hands of
comparatively few individuals will
make for the best interests of both.
FATAL BOILER EXPLOSION.
Pittsburg, Dec. 20.���Three dead, one
missing and twelve injured is the
result of a terrible boiler explosion at
the Black Diamond steel works of
Park brothers today. Tbe dead are,
John Wolvin, aged 33; Patrick O'Connor, aged 28; and an unknown man.
John Wiltz is missing. He is probably among the killed. Rueben
Miller, Jr., superintendent of thc
plant states that the boilers were examined last week and pronounced
in excellent condition.
DANISH SALE UNPOPULAR.
Copenhagen, Dee. 20���Fresh agitation against the sale of the Danish
West Indies to tbe United States without first submitting the matter to a
plebiscite seems to be increasing here.
A large and secret meeting of members was held today, the sentiment of
which was in favor of a plebiscite.
The ministerial organization is advocating prompt action in the matter
and a disregard of the popular clamor
to submit it to a vote of the people.
TROUBLE AT NOMBRE DE DIOS.

B. C. Riblet, a mining engineer of
Nelson, B. C, recently returned from
Pern, where he installed an aerial
tram line for an English syndicate,
backed by the Rotbchilds who bave
secured control of'a wonderful copper
mine near Sierra Dolsco. This mine
has been worked for -100 years but
only for the silver. The new company
intends to erect a smelter to treat 800
tone of ore daily. There is au immense amount of copper ore on the
dump and the mountain, 8,000 feet
above sea level Is said to be one immense body of mineral. The tram
line Mr. Riblet installed is 23,000 feet
long and connects with a railway 120
miles long to Oiednad lately built by
the English Company. From that
point to the coast there has beeu a
line of railway in operation for some
years. Now that the means of transportation ie complete Mr. Riblet says
the company will be able to deliver
10,000 tons of copper at El Paraiso
yeariy, at a cost of sever, vents a

Governor Taft Reviews the Situation
in the Philippines Before Leaving.
Manila, Dec. 20.���Over 4,000 members of the Federal party called on
Governor Taft today to bid him farewell and safe return. The governor
addressed lOo of the most prominent of
his visitors, saying he was touched
and honored by their presence. The
organization, he added, had dorc so
much toward bringing about peace
and giving the country a stable party
that it argued moie for the succcsb of
American labors than anything else
during the recent critical times.
The reports circulated in the United
States fouuded on incidents connecled
with the war in Batangas province
and the island of Samar, the governor
also said, tend to convey a wrong impression of a situation which is really
hopeful. Through his officers, the
constabulary and provincial governments, besides 850 teachers, the commission had excellent means of acquiring information in the oreani.zed
provinces and it considers that there
was never a time when there has been
so much real ground for hopefulness
and encouragement in regard to the
attitude of tbe Filipino people toward
the oivil government. The military
district in Samar had created an un
founded feeling of uneasiness concerning the condition of the peope of the
rest of the Archipelago. The war in
Batangas and Samar, kept up by misguided men, furnished the only ol -
stacle to obtaining liberal legislation
on the part of congress.

L'ght Extension Bylaw Comes
Far   From   Carrying.
All the loan blyaws were defeated at
the c lection which took place yesterday. The total vote polled was not
large aud the fact that the voting was
in progress mude no appreciable difference in the appearance of the
streets. Everything passed off quietly
and the result was scarcely different
from what was generally expected ex-
copt by those whose enthusiasm befogged their judgment. The total
number of votes cast was 1,308 and
tho oounting of these occupied considerable time and while this was in
progress quite a little group of interested ratepayers gathered at the
different polling booths to ascertain
the resjlt as soon as possible. The
following are the results by wards;

were discovered in the linen room on
the third floor.'of the institute. Very
quickly the whole building was filled
with dense smoke and the girls ln
their night robes fled to the tcp flour.
There a wild panic ensued and It was
with the greatest difficulty that a
frightful catastrophe was averted.
Finally ladders were placed at the
windows and thc work of rescue was
carried out, quickly and successfully.
None of the girls waa seriously

ROCKY MOUNTAIN OIL FIELDS.
That there is mineral oil io the
firm of seepage in tbe vicinity of the
forty-ninth parallel on both slopes of
the main range of the Rocky moun-
tnins has long been known. A prospector fonr years since brought to
Rossland a bottle of the oil which he
found in a spring in Kast Kootenay,
hut as there was a lode mining boom
on at that time anil as thc Crow's
Nest railway was not finished and the
country inaccessible the prospector
failed to attract the attention of the
promoters and the find was lost sight
of at the time. Recently, owing to the
California and Texas oil excitements, the Rocky mountain oil fields
have attracted attention and ono or
fro companies have been formed for
the purpose of exploiting the deposits.
besides a number of reservations have
been made of land for the purpose of
prosperting for oil.
Bailey Willis has an article in the
Engineering and Mining Journal on
oil of the Rocky mountains in which
he states that the first account of oil
which he saw was in tho report of the
Canadian survey of 1891, marie
by Mr. Selwyn. The first place
that Mr. Selwyn found oil was
In Cameron Falls orook. a stri-aiu
rising in a lake en tho international
boundary near longitude 114. While
riding alorg ths brook ho noticed a
powerfnl odor of petroleum. He
skimmed the surface of a shallow
pool and soon collected a wine bottle
of oil. The brook is on the east slope
of the Rjckies. After crossing the
divide Dr. Selwyn fou^d oil on
Akimina brook. This was at a point
about 15 miles in a direct line west,
10 degrees south, from the occurrence
on Cameron Falls creek. Oil is said
by the Indians to occur at other
points in the Akmina valley, both
above and below the place where Dr.
Selwyn found it. Sage creek is a
stream entering the Flathead a short
distance north of tbe foty-ninth parallel and upon it Dr. Selwyn observed
an occurrence of oil. Dr. Selwyn's
visit in 1891 to the oil spings mentioned was initially occasioned by an
excitement concerning petroleum in the
vicinity of Pincher creek, a stream on
the nnrtnwest side of the mountains
20 miles north of the boundary, The
country all about had been staked but
a flow of water from one of tbe wells
stopped operations.
Mr. Willis devotes a large portion
of his aithle to the geological conditions which are too long to reproduce.
In conclusion he says that prospecting
for oil under the conditions mentioned
is difficult. He aho says: Following
out the theory of ooourrence in antic
lines, the prospectors should look for
oil on one of the broad flexures which
may be supposed to affect the fault
zone as well as the overthrust rocks.
In general where thc Paleozoic and
Cretaceous aie found in contact on the
eastern side of the range, they both
lie in a nearly fiat atlitnde with a
gentle dip to the south west. It is
not probable, however, that the
Cretaceous maintains this position far
under the mountains, since upon any
of the usual hypotbesesof development
of an overthrust fault, the Cretaceous
is probably overturned beneath the
Paleozoic. This condition wonld not,
however, affect its importance as a
source of oil. It is reasonable to enp-
pcae that the plane of the overthrust
was originally Hat and corresponded
to an approximately flat attitude of
tho Palcozoio rocks. Where lhe latter
have now synclinicnl structure, they
probably took on that attitude after
they werj pushed foi ward over the
Cretaaccius, and it is. therefnre, not
unlik"ly that thc one of faulting was
flexed with thc overlying strata. If
BO, the most favorable opportunities
for drilling should lie upon the
Hiiiclinical areas in the Paleozoio
rocks. Again, there is a ditllcult
choice of localities to he made with
reference to the overthrust and ils
possible extension under the mountain. It ia clear that if a bore hole
be put down too near thc eastern margin may penetrat-i the possible rescr
voir for oil at B point which is open
to the outcrop and from which tbe oil
has gradually evaporated. On the
other band, if the drill slr.inid be
driven down too far west, it may go
through the Paleozoic and pie-Paleozoic   rocks   to  great   depth   wiihont
meetine wilh any reservoir such as
hns been indicated. Under these conditions, ao anticlinal district, well
within the eastern margin and not
too far weat in the range, would seem
to offer the best opportunity. Such a
structural condition exists, for example, in the vicinity of Mt, Cleveland
between Belly river and Waterton
Lake. Even in tne roos* favorable
locality it is probable that tbe drill

BYLAWS DEFEATED.
���������. f
lhe four bylaws were voted on by
the ratepayers yesterday and beaten,
norsc, foot and dragoons. The rejection of theso bylaws shows that tne
temper of the people does not run, at
present at least, in the direction of
large expenriitues and they feel tbat
the times and the conditions are not
in accord with the incurring of heavy
municipal obligations, Tne electric
,ight bylaw failed to get the neccs
sary majority to carry it. It was, like
Richard III, cast into this breathing
world scarce half made up, and so
erode and unfashionable that even tbe
dogs barked at it. Ti.e very site on
wlu.di the proposed plant was to he
located had not been secured, nor an
estimate of its probable cost made by
an clecrtical engineer and it is no
wonder, therefore, that it failed to
receive sufficient support to carry it.
It received more support than tbe
other bylaws for the reason that there
are always a number who will vote
for a measure that involves the expenditure of a large sum of public money
bcoausc they believe that its disbursement will make lively times. This we
believe caused the olyaw wliioh provided for the expenditure of the
largest sum to receive more votes
than any of the others voted on
For the present the best way cut of
tbe difficulty winch the council finds
itself confronted, owing to the fact
that the city electric plant is so insufficient capaoity,for current require
ments, is to enter into a contraot for
a year to take the surplus power from
the Nelson Tramway Co. This can he
legally done and it seems the most
equitable solution of a vexing problem. This course should satisfy those
who aro opposed to a direct contract
wilh the West Kootenay Power and
Light company, it wil! lessen the
losses of the Tramway company and
prevent it from going out of business
and will enable the cilj to furnish
electric lights to all who need them
until such time as the city either
increases the capacity of its present
plant or ere its a new one at Bonning
ton Falls.
The latter plan must ultimately bo
carried out and as a preliminary to
this thc first requisite is to secure a
title to the site at Bonnington Falls
and the next is to have a carefully
made estimate of an electrical engineer of the cost of the plant. When
these are acoomplisbed and the city
feels tbat it can afford the plant necessary it can be erected. We do not
believe that it would bo necessary to
put in over a GOO horse power plant at
present. The plant could be so arranged that it could be readily turned into 750 or a 1,000 horse power
plant when the need for it came.
There is no necessity for extravagance
in this matter and the 500 horse power
plant could be put in muoh more
cheaply than the 1,000 horse power
plant. The additional plant oould
probubly be added out ot the revenue
derived from the, operation of the
original plant.
The ratepayers ln their wisdom have
decided that they do not want for the
present to erect the electric light
plant, a high school, or an isolation
hospital, or to install a fire alarm system. When they feel that the city
can better afford it these conveniences
will all'bc provided. in the meantime all should join together and
work In harmony to make Nelton,
what her position justifies, the largest and most important city in tbe
interior of llritish Columbia.
SWEE.   CAPORAL   CIGARETTES
EDITORIAL NOTES.
Oreat Britain imports lumber to the
extent of one hundred million dollars
worth per year and yet Canada with
probably the greatest timber limits of
any country in the wor Id makes no
particular effort to supply tho immense demand. When the isthmian
canal is completed British Columbia
will be iu a position to supply a por
tion of thc timber consumed in Qrcat
Uritaln. This will give a largely
increased value to the billions of leet
of standing timber in tho province.
Thc prominent citizen who.rcsides
on tbe corner of Carbonate and Ball
street who expect the hornets to sally
forth of their own accord is evidently
not well posted on natural history as
these   insects   are dormant in   winter

RELIEF.
There is nothing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in tbe^worst
cases.    It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O F. WELLS, of Villa Bidge,
111 , says: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good oondition. I cannot
tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, ohained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you bad overapoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a tiial.
To my astonishment the trial acted like a
charm.   8��nd mc a full size bottle.

no opium, morphine, ohloroform or ether.    Very truly yours,

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having teBted the
wonderful effect of yonr Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma, My wife haa
been afflcted with spasmodic asthma for the past 12 years. Having exhausted
my oivn skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows ou 130 Ih street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmalene.
My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted with this distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D. PHELPb, M. D.

The wool has been pulled over the
eyes of those woiking-men who voted
against the high school and the isolation hosptal bylaws. Had these been
adopted the result would have been
the expenditure of a large sum for
labor. The 85,()OU already expended
on the iiiiih school has come out of
the current revenue fund and would
have Been released and become available for expenditure on ordinary eity
work during the winter. As it ia the

BANKRUPT SALE
Our Sale continues to be a big success and the reason is not far to seek, for we bought the
stock at a low rate on the dollar and we are therefore enabled to sell goods at
Much Lower Prices Than Some of Our Opposition
Although somewhat small we are evidently a sharp thorn, in the side of one of our numerous wculd-be big competitors, who have condescended to take notice of our big sale. They
say they have no old bankrupt stock (sour grapes) for the same people tried hard to get
this same stock, but were just a trifle too low. '1 his stock of Clothing of Mr. Madson's is
the Newest in Nelson, for the reason that it is only about two years since he went into lhe
Clothing business, and moreover Mr. Madson is well known to have been a friend of the
working man and for that reason did not purchase his goods from Cheap Labor Shops,
but from the most reliable manufacturers in the Dominion. Isers and would-be Stayers
sometimes sell Branch Stores and also have Discount Sales to raise the  wind, by  George.
No small 10 per cent discount in our sale but everything in  the store   goes   at  and under
wholesale cost, which means a saving these hard times of 50 per cent and over.

During the past summer in the Lardeau the lollowing deal* have been
made, says the Trout Lake Topic:
The controlling- interest in the
Nettie L. mine purchased by English
capital and involving an investment
of about $1.10,000.
Bond on the Ophir Lade gold property for $100,000.
Bond on the Black Warrior silver-
lead property, $00,000 with development in progress.
Bond on American silver-lead property, $10,000, $8,000 of which has
already been paid and a few days ago
the owners were informed that the
holders of the bond were willing to
pay the balance $7,000 down and not
wait for the bonJ to run its course.
Purchase of the Lucky Boy and
Pedro groups the terras on which nre
not known.
Bond on the Kathleen group for
something under $10,000. This property is now being worked by the
bonders.
P. M. Robbins, oi the North Star
mine, arrived in the eity yesterday
and stated that the company had decided to reopen the rnjne ut once, nnd
would resume operations as soon as
their crew of men could be got together. It will likely be some time
before shipments are resumed, thc old
contracts having expired and no new
ones having been entered into as yet.
The property is in tirst class shape
and the reopening of it will have a
good effeot in more ways tlntn one.
Mr. Robbins states thnt Cranbrook is
lively and prosperous. Several large
sawmills there are running steadily.
and that with the railway pay roll
keeps up a good town. Kittiberley
has heen very quiet, but the starting
no of thc mine will have a beneficial
effect. At Marysville everything is
very busy, and the shipments of
freight fr.nn outside points to the new
smelter point* nre very heavy.

On Wednesday tile lessees Of (he
Ottawa, Messrs. Mulvey, King, Taylor and Johnson, bonded the Hamilton
claim, adjoining the former mine, and
owned by W, Clement and T. Mulvey.
They now have two claims to work
on. forming a gronp of respectable
dimensions. Tbeir anxiety to get
hold of the Hamilton was occasioned
by the splendid showing lately encountered en thc Ottawa. The maiD
work on the latter has been confined
to the loner drift, which is now In
2r>0 feet. A raise of 75 feet is also
being pnt through and will soon be
completed. In the face of the drift are
three streaks of ore in a width of six
feet. The first is on the footwall and
18 inches wide. It contains a great
deal of native silver snd copper, an
assay this week giving 11,185 ounces
silver. Next is a two foot streak
going 80 ounces silver, and then another fair streak mixed more with
quartz. The Ottawa is now In shape
to make a big name for itself and
looks ns promising as anything in the
camp.���Sioean Drill.

HEADQUARTERS OP
Santa Claus.
This will be the
232nd Christmas
Which this Company, who are doing business over half a continent,
has assisted its Friends and Customers to celebrate and enjoy, and
lhis  is the
FOURTH CENTURY.
in which we are doing business. Our long experience and our capital
obviously give us an immense advantage in supplying the very best
value in everything to our patrons. This year we have made special
efforts and have now a collection of
Christmas Goods
which cannot be surpassed in any city in Canada.
Our Dry Goods Department
is well worthy of its  reputation,   and is  replete with  articles suilable
For Presents for Men,
Women and Children.
No pains have been spared to decorate in honor of "Good Old
Christmas," and an inspection will please you as well as enable you to
select exactly what you want at
Most Reasonable Prices.
We cannot commence to enumerate, but would draw special attention
to our
irs and Dolls
Toy
and to our Ladies' and Gent'emen's Ties which we have in all shades,
shapes and pattern*, as well as to our magnificent line of Handkerchiefs in linen and silk, of Gloves of every description, including the
Paris Price Kid Gloves, and of Ladies' Blouses, etc., etc. Every conceivable article necessary or ornamental for Ladies' and Gentlemen's
attire is here to choose from. There is nothing a woman can wish for
in the way of Dress Goods that this department cannot supply, and at
a saving. The very newest and most exquisite weaves and colorings
will be found in this vast collection, and the quantity will astonish you
as much as the quality and little prices.
Groceries.
With Groceries and Eatables quality is everything. Price is a
consideration, but its importance is second to that of quality. You
must have the finest and freshest foodstuffs obtainable, because it is
healthiest, because, in fact, in the long run it pays best. But when
you secure "top notch" quality at the minimum reasonable price,
nothing more can be wanted. This is the combination you obtain at
these Stores���quality the highest, prices the lowest.
Our Christmas Specialties
include a direct shipment of Peek, Frean & Co's Biscuits, Pascall's
Sweets, Rowntree's Confections, Christie's and McCormick's Fancy
Biscuits, English Plum Puddings, French Crystalized Fruits, Gor-
ganzola, Roquefort and English Stilton Cheese.
Crockery, China and Glassware.
This depajtment is very complete. Dinner Sets, Tea Sets and
Bedroom Sets in all qualities and at all prices. We have a nice line
of specially selected "little things", very suitable for presents and a
choice collection of more expensive goods for the same purpose.
Cups and Saucers, Plates, dishes, Platters, etc., of every description
and style. Fancy Glass and China Ware, genuine Cut Glass Goods,
both for use and ornament. Anything and everything required in
these lines for the kitchen and diningroom is here.
Our Wine and Liquor Department
consists of direct importations from all over the world.
DEPEND UPON IT,
you may, we can assure you. Our Liquors are worthy of everydependence. For years
and years we have been selling Liquors, and during this time we have built up a fortress
of confidence in us and our lines which is absolutely unassailable. You run no risk
in purchasing from us. The quantity and variety of Liquors which you can obtain
here are larger than you could secure elsewhere in Western Canada- so great indeed
is the variety that we believe we can satisfy almost any individual fancy in the way
of Wines and Liquors, The least you can do at any rate is to give us a trial order,
and thus allow us to demonstrate the advantage of trading with us.
Prices Right in all Lines.   Watch Our Windows.

8WEET OAPORAL CIGARETTES
COPPER GOES  DOWN.
Foreign Demand Now the Only Hope
For the Market.
New York, Deo. 20.���Copper has
taken nnnther drop to $18 for lake,
812.37 1-3 for electrolytic and *l!i..W
for easting. In London the price
reached ul!) Ills. The London exchange was closed in the afternoon on
account of the death of the son of Mr.
Kekewich.
A meeting of the directors of the
amalgamated Copper company was
held yesterday after which a slntc-
ment was given out which was a
review of tbe copper market for the
year. lhey said that the falling off
in thc demand fur copper in Europe
caused slocks to the amount of US.OUO
tons to nccumninte. The increase in
the United States demand tended to
offset this hut the burden of upholding prices fell upon tlie Amalgamated
company. They thought it the better
policy not to force the market bnt
other companies would not]pursuc the
same policy. The mines and smelters
which the Amalgamated Copper company control are well fitted for the
cheap production of copper and are
ready to compete with the world. The
future of the copper market therefore
depends upon lho revival of the
foreign market.
