Nelson Is Becoming the Shopping Centre of the
Great Changes In the Current
of Retail Trade In Three
In regard to shopping in town or
sending east for anything that car
he purchased nt tbe department
stores of Toronto or Montreal, si
many misconceptions are current in
Nelson, as well as other western
cities, that a few facts concerning
conditions past and present in this
particular line of trade are given.
A great many people are under thc
impression that the one and only
cause of money being sent out ol
town to procure articles that are for
sale here is that of economy. This
nowever, is only one of the causes
and not the jhief one, which at
tho piesent time is custom, Wlien a
workingman hears, for instance, that
a certain article, be it clothing, groceries, cr what not, that he needs, can
be purchased thirty or forty per cent,
cheaper in Toronto, including freight
or expr.ssage, than he can get it ir
Nelson, he is hardly to be blamed for
sending away for it. If he thinks at
all of the action of sending money out
of town as being an injury to the
merchants and the town, he probablv
says that charity begins at home, and
that the mercbunts arc not likely to
put themselves out to help bim along.
When, however, the goods sent for
auive nnd the freight charges somehow amount up away higher than figured on, some of the articles not up
to the standard he expected (or would
have demanded in town) and probably
a mistake in .omething that will cost
a little to rectify, It Is a different
One business man in town about
three months ago received some samples from nn eastern tailoring firm
with prices that seemed marvellously
cheap. He studied the samples well
and the prices and then visited a loeal
firm and enquired how much a suit
would cost if made of either of two
kinds of cloth that he saw in the
st?re. In one case the price was dou
ble aud in the other there was five
dollars difference in favor ot the east-
cm firm's samples. He immediately
sent for the cheaper suit advertised,
nt fifteen dollars, and received it, the
express charge being two dollars. He
then weut to the tailor to show it,
but when compared with the Suiting
be hnd previously examined, admitted
that they were not exactly slinilur,
the eastern goods being of a considerably cheaper texture,although the dill!
erence was not noticeable until the
two pieces of cloth were laid side by
Bide. On comparing the secol d sample, in which there was the five dollar
difference it was found that the goods
were of equal quality. After a rather warm discussion the buyer sont
east for the second suit, to cost $25.
It arrived���expressnge 88���When it
was found that alterations were
needed that cost 92 more; the cheaper
suit needed slight changes also. He
bad saved, perhaps, 92 on the suits.
If spent in town the making of the
clothes would have given a journeyman tailor a week's employment,
two-thiids of whose wages would
have been spent in Kelson. Though
a lnrge per centngc of men wIiobc interests are principally In town send
away for their clothing this dollar or
so saving on a suit can hardly be regarded as clear profit.
From all enquiries made it was evi-
cnt that the tailors suffered most from
the custom of sending money out of
town, as In other lines some most
gratifying 'nets were elicited. In the
tailoring it is difficult, with the best
of manngement, for a western employer to pay living wages and stand competition'with eastern sweat shops,
In drygoods, house furnishings,
etc., the balance of trade iB.turning
slowly but surely in the right direction. As nearly as could bo calculated about the sume amount of money
goes east for these lines of goods as
was sent three years ago, but fully
threo times as much is spent in town
as was done at the earlier period
mentioned.   Three  years  ago   there j
stores   have millinery departments.
Nelson merchants are not as much
.lit by the effects of the "sending
.way'' habit as those In any of the
���urrounding towns, for probably as
much trade comes from other towns
to Nelson as some of the citizens here
end to the east. The following
ines of business here have been the
nost successful in competition with
eastern dealers; stationery and books,
jewellery, drugs, furniture and house
urnishings, millinery, dressmaking
ind dry goods. In these lines, it
.peaks for the enterprise and business
ibility of the various firms that they
iave been able to not only hold their
iwn but to regain much of the trade
hat bad been going east, and still
nore tbat in competition with the
iastern houses so much retail trade
tomes to Nelson from tbe KootenayB
feudally. In hardware, groceries
cobaccco and several other lines
.astern competition for various reasons is not much felt.
Nelson is bound to become the shopping centre of the interior, and each
/ear brings this out more strongly. In
Toronto and Montreal, strange as it
may seem, many of the dealers complain of the amount of trade that goes
to New York from thOBe cities. In
New York people, that if tbey were
in Toronto would send to New York,
forward their cash trade to London, although tbat has teen checked greatly
of late.

Mr. W. F. DuBoIs, of the Arllghton
mine, Is at the Phalr. He said that
work waB going on as usual at the
mine. The very backward season has
kept prospectors from getting to the
hills, but the snow Ib now gone from
all but the higher summits. Mr. Du-
Bois also stated that the people of
Slocan City were making great preparations for the celebrations today
and tomorrow.
L. A. Campbell, of the Bonnington
Falls Power plant, is in town and
stopping at the Phair. To a reporter
of The Miner he gave an interesting
account of whnt Is being done by the
company at present towards enlarging its already immense plant.
At present there are two generators
of 1,000 horse power each and one of
2,000 horsepower. When the altera-
tions-now under way are completed
there will be one setting of water
wheels with a capacity of 4,000, and
a space left for two more of equal
strength, to he completed when needed, which would give a total capacity
of 16,000 horse power.
There are_ now 100 men at work,
75 of whom are engaged on rock worn
and 25 at rigging derricks and getting the construction plant in position. On July 1st 75 additional men
will be added to the force, and work
will be prosecuted night and day till
all is finished, which is expected to
be in about eight months from now.
It is now abont two months since the
undertaking was corameunced, and a
good showing has been made. The
construction machinery now being put
In place consists of ono 10-drill Rand
compressor and three 4-ton derricks
operated with double drum hoisting
engines with swinging gear attachment, also four air drillB.
' A canal is being cut through solid
rock three hundred feet in length,
fifty feet wide and with an average
depth of cut of thirty-six feet. Thi_
canal will commence at a point on
the river bank almost parallel with
the beginning of the present lluiue,
discharging some forty feet further
down river than the other. It will
be between the railway track and the
present power plant.
This canal will furnish power tc a
setting of water wheels of 4,000
horse power, leaving space for two
similar settings of equal power. In
the new power liouse room will also
be left for ma'hinery of the capacity
allowed by the wheels, to be put in
as occasion may demand. All hydraulic work in^conn. ction with the
further addition will be done now,
as it is not expected that it will be
very long before the whole will be
completed. The immensity o* the
workings must be seen to be appreciated, and will make one of the finest
water power systems in existence.

Nelson and are one of the muny scenic

The growth of Nelson is ono of the
most satisfactory features in tho development of Southern Hritish Columbia, wIiobc prosperity may be well
guaged by the growth of this charmingly situated town which ib the

of London, England. The Nelson
Electric Traction Company, which is
one of the au'isidaries of the Hritish
Electric Traction, may be congratulated on the the satisfactory nature of
their enterprise. In nddltion to their
controlling all the local passenger
traffic they are the a-.wneis of the

they also have carefully selected investments in both business and residential real estate, which since their

All the available seating capacity of
the council chamber was filled last
evening when the city fathers assembled at their regular meeting and the
business of the influential deputations
who waited upon the city Council
practically monopolized the time.
The first deputation to interview
the fathcis was one from the school
board, consisting of Hr. Arthur and
Geo. Johnstone. Or, Arthur, as the
spokesman, remarked that during his
visit to the Coast he had interviewed
the superintendent of education, who
gave him the assurance that block III
would be t'ransfened to thc school
authoiities when the city was prepared to supplement the government
grant dollar for dollar. The object of
their visit to thc meeting tonight was
to ascertain from the council the intentions or wishes In regard to the
preparation of plans for the proposed
school building. It ia tlie intention
of the board to have the plans and
specifications piepared locally but thoy
will have to be submitted to the department at Victoria before the work
can be jroceeded with. Hence it waa
important that they should get to
work as soon as possible to have the
proposed increase of accommodation
immediately after the summer vacation if it could be managed. It would
also he advisable that the couuell
notify the department at Victoria that
they hud made this appropriation
The mayor said thut the matter of
supervision was one of tlie matters
in connection with the question on
which he was somewhat at sea.
Dr. Ar'.hui remarked that Hie school
board would supervise tlie work as
they wore m much Interested in the
financial pint as anyone. He also
stated that the Government grant
would be available during the construction of the building on the architect's estimate. He suggested that the
council act in conjunction with the
school board 111 the matter of procuring the necessary   plans.
Aid. Gillett asked if the council
should not act on the committee'.'
The mayor suggested that the school
committee Bhould secute thu plans and
the council would have tu accept
whatever they gave them.
The mayoi said they must go ahead
at once or pnt the matter off until
another year.
Aid. Patterson suggested that the
school trustees interview the architects in icgard to the plans as they
were in a better position to know tho
requirements of the situation than the
council were.
The mayor with the consent of tho
council appointed a committee consisting of Aldermen Hamilton, NuIoun
and Patterson as a committee to confer with the trustees on the question
und to ieiuuin us a school coin ml'tee

Gome Early and Get
It wDuld be a good thing if the dispute between the canners and the
fishermen were not more serious
than that between the Provincial
and the Federal authorities with respect to the control of the fisheries.
Only a few weeks ago they weie publishing cables in London to the effect
that the Province was about to resort
to arms in order to establish its claim
to that control, and even at home the
public mind was disturbed with ap-
prehenssions of more or less trouble
over the question. The Miner has
never supposed that there was any
cause for anxiety, for however stupid or rash our local Government
may have been in making claims, the
Government at Ottawa has not yet,
at least, so far lost its head as to permit the display of anything like violence. At Vancouver the other day
Mr. Turner was asked by a reporter if
he was in favor of taking over the
fisheries by the Province, and in liis
answer we get an official declaration as to the present position of the
matter.    He said :
"I do not care very much one wav
or the other, and I am not altogether
in favor of making the change. Hut
I do say that there are still matters
which should rightfully come under
the control of the Dominion Govern a
ment, even though the Province does
take over its share. Tne size of the
mesh and the season and such matters should come under the administration of the Dominion Government
at all times, no matter what !s done.
As the matter stands on the last telegrams we have received from Ottawa,
the Dominion will this year take all
the revenues. We could not take one
tax and the Dominion another, for
that would loud to endless confusion.
Then at the end of the season the
Dominion will give the Province its
proportion of the amount of revenue
it has received; We arc simply asking for what has always been conceded by the Dominion us ours, we do
not want to take of sea waters which
wo have no right to. Hut 1 still
think the Dominion should spend
more monoy in fostering the fisheries
in the rivers as well as along the coast.
Men well versed in the business tell
mc that there are valuablo fisheries of
cod and halibut ull along the const,
and at present the Americans are
getting the most of the benefit from
these. Now, if the Government
would put on cruisers and miike in
vestigations of good fishing locutions,
and try to footer the salmon industry
by the building of hutcheries, it
would be a great deal better for
everyone concerned.and the industries
would prosper."
According to Mi. Turner, there is
not much room for a row between the
two Governments. That suggestion
as to cruisers brings up the old complaint of American icekleBsness in
their prosecution of the fishing industry. In the Great Lukes, and In
their own and udjacent waters of the
Atlantic coast, they have so nearly

The shareholders of the Canadian
Hank of Commerce lire hind to please
If thev were not satisfied with the
report made to them Ht their thirty-
fourth annual meeting, held In Toronto on Lhe lHt.li Inst. The yenr thut
closed with May would have been a
flourishing one in any case, but the
amalgamation with the Hunk of
Hritish Columbia helped out the showing to a very considerable extent. A
paragraph in the report reads: "The
profit arising from tlie purchase of
tjie nssetH of the Hank of IlritiKli Columbia, aftei making tlie special addition of $75,1100 to the Pension Fund
referred to in the Statement, amounted to 8868,770, Thin praclicully constitute^! the premium received on the
stock of this Hank issued in that con
nection,    nnnicl.v     83,000,000,      From
continued to be very satisfactory, we
have been able to add to the Reserve
Fund 8750,000, and to make a further
appropriation of $.5,710 to Hank
Premises Account."
It lias long since become an established custom on these occasions for
the Hank Manager to present a general review of the conditions of the
country. It was not departed from in
this case. Neleon readers are probably more interested in the mining industry, and in respect to this Mr.
Walker's remarks will boar repetition
here. lie said: "In mining, other
than coal and iron, we miist recognize
the collapse in the value of the shares
of certain companies and the effect for
the time upon other ventures, the
facts regarding which, however, may
be full of ground for encouragement.
It i�� quite evident that our people
aie only learning by bitter experience how to estimate the value of a
mine. The movement in the prices of
shares, however, is not mining, and is
often not even an evidence of thc
condition of mining looked at as a national industry which will continue to
progress as long as any profit Is made
in excess of the cost of working.
Much more seriouB than the fall in
shares is the persistent tendency to-
ward labor troubles and the fall in
the price of lead. If one or more refineries on an adequate scale result
from the bounty granted by the Dominion Government, doubtless the silver-lead mines will be generally
worked even at the present low prices,
and in a few years we may succeed in
smelting all the ores of British Co
lmnbia in our own countiy. In Ross-,
laud the ore shipments have increased as compared with the previous
year, and in the Boundary district
the outlook is quite satisfactory
The total figures of the year as we
had a light to expect exceed any
previous year. The total results of
mining, both metallic and non-mecal
lie, for the year 1000, are given by the
Geological Survey us over 803,000,000,
und while there is an increase in the
non-metallic products the greut
growth is due to the matallic products. The figures for the previous
year were less than 8!i0,000,000, and in
1890 tbe totul was less than 817,000,-

Company   Reorganized   on   an Assessable Basis.
Greenwood, June 2..���An extraordinary general meeting of shareholders in the Brandon A Golden Crown
Mining Company, Ltd., was held at
Greenwoud, on Thnrsdaj, June 20.
Among those present were Hon. T.
Mayne Daly, K. C, Rossland, president; W. t,, Orde, Rossland, secretary; G. H. Collins, W. A. Fuller, W.
J. Porter nnd J. A. Russell, Green
wood, local members of tbe directorate, Rod G. R. Coldwell, K. C, and
John lnglis, Brandon, Man, Of the 1,-
500,000 shares iu the company there
were about 1,200,000 represented either
iu person or by proxy.
The necessary special resolutions
were submitted and unanimously
passed authorizing thc voluntary
liquidation and reconstruction of the
existing company, the reconstructed
company to be known as tbe Golden
Crown Mines, Ltd., and to have a
nominal capital of $1,500,000 in 1,500,-
000 shares of $1 each, this capital being similar ill amount and number of
shares to that of the old company.
Shares in the new company nre to
be issued as paid up to 05 cent, leaving five cents per share, or a total of
875,000 available for assessments to
pay off existing liabilities and to provide working capital for the further
development of the mine. It is estimated that this sum will give ample
money to fully test the property, upon which between 2,000 and 3,000
lineal feet of worn have been done
underground in development, and
from which about 2,500 tons of ore
were last year shipped to the   smelter
It was docided to ho'.d the general
meeting required for the formal confirmation of thc resolutions passed at
this meeting, at Rossland on July 0.
W. A. Fuller, of Greenwood, was appointed liquidator. The registered
oflice of the new company will be at
It is anticipated that six weeks or
two months hence, some time in August, the water will be pumped out of
the mine and development work will
be resumed. The visiting shareholders state that they and those,they represent were misled as to the financial
condition of the old company, otherwise they would nut have permitted
it to diift into difficulties. Among
those interested in it are men prominent in Manitoba, who wish to do
only what is right and now that they
know where the blame should be
placed For the existing unsutisfae
tory state of affairs they are determined that precautions will bo taken to
guard against a repetition of it. It is
but fair to add that they do not blame
either the piesident or secretory for
the virtual wrecking of the old cora-
Wagon   Roads   Being   Constructed to
Open Up Somo Good Properties.
Peterborough, B, C, June 19.���The
Toby creek wagon road is being pushed ahead vigorously to the north fork.
The completion of this road will enable the following properties to ship
viz., Bullion, Mineral King, Kootenay ljueen, Hot Punch, Del phi no, Par-
dise, Silver Crown, Shamrock, Silver
Belt, Monarch, and others.
It is understood that the contract
will be let immediately by the Government for the construction of Horse
Thief creek wagon road from Pster-
borough to McDonald creek, a distance of twenty mites. Thos. Star-
bird, manager of the McDonald mines
and Iron Cap mine of the Red Lion
group, will build a wagon road from
the Government wagon road on McDonald creek, eight miles up the crecit
to the Iron Cap mine at his own expense. Mr. Starbird will install the
most modern machineiy upon completion of the road and will work the
Iron Cap property on an extensive
scale Mr. Starbird is the most enterprising and energetic mining operator in N. E. Kootenay district. He
has confined his operations entirely
to the Windermere dUtriot and is the
representative, of a strong New York
syndicate. The Iron Cap mine is considered a remarkably good property
having immense showings of high
grade ore.
The Paradise mino under Manager
E. R. Bruce, has resumed operations
on a large scale. Mr. Bruce deserves
unlimited praise in the manner in
whioh he has worked thiB mine, having already shipped 1,000 tons ot ore
to the Trail smelter.
The Monarch on north fork of Toby,
is being developed by the Richmond
Mining Co., of New York, under Manager AlperBon.
Capitalists are now fl.cklng In from

before committing themselves. He
asked the deputation if theii offer to
buy out the city plant included the
monopoly of the city water power.
L. A. Campbell said that they did
not figure on procuring the water
power as they had no need for it.
The mayor regarded the question as
a very large one and thought that
their offer of a cash purchase price of
850,000 was hardly commensurate for
a franchise which was providing the
city with an annual revenue 01 J24,-
000 per year or 82,000 per month.
Alderman Hamilton stated as his
opinion that the matter had better be
referred to the Fire, Water and Light
Mr. Macdonald stated that the company the deputation represented were
anxious to have the matter settled as
soon as possible.
Tlie mayor expressed the opinion
that the proposal could not he entertained for a moment and if the coin -
cil accepted the offer, theie were 1 ot
ten per cent, of Hie people who would
vote for it He stated, however, that
when the matter had been reported on
by the committee he would call a special meeting of the council if the matter was urgent enough to require it.
Mr. Macdonald expressed a wish
that Mr. Glass, the representative of
the company, should meet the coits-j
mittee on the following day, if th y
were willing. Alderman Irving, as
the convener of the committee, stated
that they might meet at the time suggested, but did not think that it was
necessary to do so.
Tlie deputation then withdrew aim
tho matter was not fuither dicussed.

was a very uncertain quantity, and
further owing to the first class plant
(as good as any in Canada) whicli
has been erected, that it is entitled
to and thould receive the good will of
the whole community and where
practicable should be encouraged in
the extension and growth of its business. In regard to the lighting of
the City of Nelson, while great credit
is duo to those who succeeded in supplying light through the present
plant at a certain period of the existence of the city, still it must be conceded that in view of its recent rapid
growth and the important position it
now occupies as a centre of business
and population, that the present system is totally inadequate and really
does not do justice to a place of the
importance of Nelson. The fact that'
at certain seasons of the year a   limit
has to be placed upon the use of lights I _���.. c,,,,.   �����.<���__-���   ^..~.��   _..-    -,      ., ,   .

er, thus   rendering the  city   entirely    _ deposit* and on Saving Bank accounts,
without light for several weeks and
further that the power is not sufficient to furnish a proper system of
arc lights for the streets of the city,
seem to render it quite plain that a
change of some kind must be made
and That very quickly.
Another very important feature
for your consideration is that if you
desire to render your city attractive
for manufacturing enterprises it is
absolutely necessary to be able to supply the great modern factor of electric
power which ia not only more convenient, but more economical to use
than steam; this would furnish an
improtant inducement to manufacturers to establish plants in your midst
and thus give pay rolls and increase
and promote prosperity.
It is needless to say that to thc ordinary visitor the lighting of the
streets by incandescent lamps appears to be very primitive and behind
the times. It would certainly be only
justice to the leal merits of Nelson
that its streets should be lighted by a
lirst class system of arc lights. We
have given the matter of tlie lighting
nf Nelson a great deal of consideration und desire to make an offer to
you which will commend itself for
liberality and reasonableness,not only
to your Honorable Ilody, but to every
business man in the city.
We huve examined your present
plaut und huve no hesitation in sav-
ingthat we could replace the same by
more modern machinery and furnish
the same number of lights at a cost of
less than 820,000, but we recognize
the expenditure which has been made
by tlie city and therefore propose to
take a very bioad view of the proposition. We will give you for the entire plant, upon the terms hereinafter
mentioned, 860,000 in cash, payable as
follow. 85,000 upon a transfer being
made and 85,000 per year for nine
years, with interest at 5 per cent, per
annum,with the right to the company
to pay the whole off lit any time.
In addition to this tlie company will
agree to furnish the power for 50 arc
lights for the streets of Nelson for five
years free of charge to the city ; the
city, however, to install and maintain its own lamps at its own expense. The company to receive a
franchise for erecting poles throughout the streets of tlie_ city and to
string and iiiaintalnjwires thereon for
furnishing lights and power to the Inhabitants. All poles, wiring and other
work done by the company to be of
the best quality and workmanship.
We also ask for exemption fiom taxation for five years.
If this proposition should he accepted the city would derive many advantages.
First���It would enjoy n first class,
continuous electric light servico running night and day with no shut oil'
on account of luck of power or other
Second���You   would hnve   what the
people are   clearly entitled to,   name-I
ly ; the appearance und protection of a I
modern,   up   to  date   city,   wilh   its
streets   illuminated in   tlie best mau
ner by aro lights.
Third���Vou would furnish a most
inviting field for manufacturing enterprises of ull kinds, whicli would do
more than anything else for the
growth anil development of tho city.
Fourth���You would have made tiu
excellent and profitable sale of the
present plant, which is, as all will
admit, quite insuflieient for the
wants of the lity toduy.
Fifth���Municipal "ownership of
