Nelson,   British  Columbia, Wednesday, June 19,  1901
Eleventh 'Year
SUCCESSFUL
CELEBRATION
Nelson's  Big  Time  on the
First and Second of
July.
Water Carnival and Trades
Procession to Be Leading Events.
Every year the people of the Kootenays look forward to Nelson .celebration of Dominion Day. Eleven years
ago the pioneers of the Queen City of
the Kootenays fired off some fire
crackers, ran some races and otherwise observed the anniversary of Canada's Confederation as loyal Canadians should do. Ever since that more
fire crackers have been fired off and
more races run on the annual recurrence of tout day until now it has become to be recognized as the greatest
day in the year in Southern British
Columbia. It was commenced at a
time when there was practically no
other place than Nelson, survived a
period when there was every other
pla'le except Nelson,and now that Nelson is again the most important
point in Hritish Columbia outside the
Coast citieB tho celebration reaches a
magnitude in every may worthy of
this most Important and thriving city.
All the celebrations have been good
but as Nelson has progressed so has
the celebration and, as Is fit and properdins year will" eclipse all others in
thc matter of observance of Canada's
great national holiday. Other small
towns ��io celebrating the day but
they cannot detract from the importance of Nelson's celebration and thousands of Kootenaians, anxious to enjoy ihe best the land provides, will
journey to the Queen City on July
^tst, remain over for the second and
see such sports and goings on as they
nevoi dreamed of before. The cheap
rates of the railway und steamboat
lines will be good from Saturday June
2,!th until Wednesday July 3rd.
It doesn't make any difference
what particular line of sport any individual is interested in���it will be
here for hiin to enjoy. There will be
the running hop, step and jump, and
a fancy dress ball, a horse race and a
baby show, a girls' biiycle race and
a trades' procession, a regatta and a
drilling contest, a hundred yard dash
and a water carnival, a football, tase-
ball'aud a lacrosse match and a quoit
match and everything else, ami���as
the Mikado has it���"A grand display
of fireworks in the evening."
The committee in charge of the
celebration is doing its work well
and the various sub-committees are
equally industrious. A careful canvas haB made the financial success of
thc big undertaking assured and special prizes have been received from the
leading cities of both Canada and the
United States. Tho happy thought of
soliciting prizes from firms that enjoy Nelson's patronage has been attended with tangible results that
have greatly swelled the fund and
the list of prizes until no celebration
that has ever taken place in llritiBh
Columbia ha�� a better assortment of
awards for competing athletes than
Nels-on offers this year. From a
spectacular standpoint tbe two big
attractions will be the water carnivals and the trades'' procession. It is
hard to imagine a more beautiful
bight than a hundred boats of all
sorts aud sizes decorated with s.ores
of Chinese lanterns, sail'ng slowly on
the surface of the quiet lake, while
rockets rush upwards to distribute-
their showers of flame, red fire burns
brightly to give a tint of rouge to the
already highly colored scene, and
bands play their gay tunes to complete II judices.
the effect and to appeal to every artistic sense of the beholder. As in
every other line of the celebration
this year's water carnival will be
more gorgeous than any that has proceeded it. Two weeks ago every
available craft was bespoken and the
boatmen say that if they had two
dozen more steam launches they
would have been rented long ago.
Many heads aro now busily occupied
designing decorations for launches,
row boats and canoes, and the competition for the handsome and valuable prizes will be decidedly keen.
The water carnival alone,which takes
well repay the time and expense necessary in a visit to the city from any
town in the Kootenay.
Very lively Interest is being taken
in the trades' procession and something over thiity floats will be In it.
Of course the contestants lor tbe
handsome 8150 trophy will not divulge
theii plans of decorating their floats
but they have gone into itj earnestly
and some decidedly handsome productions will be the result. The unions,
too, are taking great interest in
the parade and will be out in full
force.
The athletic games will engage
more competitors than ever assembled
in one place in thu Kootenays before. Football, baseball and lacrosse
teams from outside points will be
present and their expenses will be
paid by the celebration committee,
Thc miners are taking great interest
in the drilling contest and horsemen
are bringing out some dark horses to
go after the purses hung up. The
boat races will create a great deal of
local interest while the quoit games
will attract players from many Koo
tenay points.
A great deal of work yet remains
to be done hut tbe grand success ol
this year's celebration is already assured. Hugh Cameron, secretary of
the general committee, is working
overtime in his department and if
there is anything you don't Know
about what's going to happen ask
him.

CAUCASIAN VS. CHINESE.
Bev. Mr. Munroe Discusses the Chinese
Question From the Pulpit.
The Chinese question is an ever
present one and the more it is discuss
ed the more distant seems the solution.
On Sunday evening last tbe Bev,
Mr, Munroe, pastor of the Congregational church discussed the matter
from the words, "Let both grow together until the harvest." Beferrlng
to the Chinaman as an unfair competitor of working men he claimed that
to be consistent the working men
ought to throw out the linotype, sewing machine, street cars and self binders if they drove away the Chinaman
for that reason. Beplying to the ar-
gumenet that they were undesirable
because they sent all their money to
their own country, he stated tbat it
was not exactly true as they paid
their taxes whea rounded up by the
assessors which was not very different
to the white man being rounded up
by the sheriff. In' another way, men
showed their inconsistency because
what they admire as commendable
in the frugal German, Irish and
Scotch people who sent tbeir money
to their friends at home they condemned in the Chinamen.
They were accused of such severe
economy, a crime unhappily not attributable to British Columbia where
there was more extravagance than in
any o.her part of tbe world���and it
appeared to be.regarded as a sin for
the Chinamen to pay their debts and
lay up for a rainy day. He contrasted the sobriety of the Mongolians
with lhat of the white men in B.
C, and the former suffered not by the
comparisou. Referring to the atgu-
ment that the Chinese joints were
pest houses he claimed that every red-
curtained, brilliantly lighted habitation of the fallen women were manifoldly more a pest house than all the
Chinese joints in the city. He claimed
that ai we pro'esscd to be the champions of libeity and brotherhood we
were belieing the principles of
Democracy by the treatment dealt out
to the Mongolian citizens.
He claimed for the Chinese that
they were cither inferior, equal or
superior. If the former, we had no
cause to fear, as the flat skull never
dominated the high forehead. If the
second, there was no Injustice and
if the latter we could not afford to
treat them shabbily, for their chances
of revenge will come some day. There
is no gospel in brickbats or race  pre-

A report came down from the Athabasca mine yesterday, but not officially, that the work on the mine
would resume at an early date. No
confirmation of the report has been
received and   it may only   be a street

(SPECIALS TO THE MINER.)
Charlottetown, June 18.���Since the
Provincial prohibition law went into
force there has been something like
an unprecedented sale of liquor in
this oity. The majority of the people
in the Provincial bounds are not
prohibitionists. There i3 a doubt
about the constitutionality of the
law and thc City Council decided that
officials Bhould take no part in enforcing its enactments. The result
was something like a dead lock, which
has, hbwever, been broken at last.
Under threat of dismissal by the Sti
pendiary Magistiate the Chief of Police has agreed to move and summonses will be served on those who
have been selling liquor since the 5th
instant,when the prohibtion act nominally went into force.

on record, 20.50 mills on an assessment of 822,000,000 and a business
tax of 20 mills on 84,050,000. The
amount to be raised is 8571,000.
Ottawa, June 18.���A private letter
received in the city from Hon. W.
Mulock says that the postmaster general had been very ill on his way to
Australia and after arriving there he
was suffering from nutritus and was
in a private hospital for some   weeks,
Niagara, June 18,���A general review of the troops in camp here took
place this morning before Major General O'Grady-Haley. The weather

about 4,000 men took part. The
minister of militia was on the grounds
this afternoon when the review was
repeated.
Montreal, June 18.���The steamship
Lake Superior, which arrived yesterday from Liverpool, had 19 stowaways. They all declared they were
tempted to come to Canada by many

Montreal, June 18.���The striking
trackmen, formerly in the employ of
the C, P. R., claim that 400 men
joined the ranks of the strikers today.
They say that only one man is working between Montreal and Toronto,
and that only a few men aie at >vork
all through Ontario. In the west,
they say, all men are out, as well as
in New Brunswick. Tbe total number of men out is estimated by the
strikers' committee at 4,000. Tbe
management of the C. P. R. on the
other hand, say they are having no
difficulty in securing men to take
the places of the strikers, and that
they bave no doubt about the outcome
of the strike so far as the company
is concerned. About the only devel
opment in the strike during the last
twenty four hours is the fact that
the brldgemen on the North Bay di
vision have declined to patrol the
track. Piesident Wilson of the Trackmen's Union, has assured thc bridge-
men that the Trackmen's Association
will stand by-them; The company is
doing their best to have the track
patrolled for which purpose many
clerks from the general offices and
workmen | from thc shops have been
sent ouW-
Montreal, June 18.���Later���There is
no change in the C. V. R. trackmen's
strike. Gereral Manager MeNicol'l
of the C. P. R. claims that they aie
gradually returning to woik and the
strike is fizzling out. President Wilson of thc traokmen's union on the
other hand, claims that the men are
solid and will stay out until their
demands are met. Wilson leaves in
the morning for Toronto, where he
will address a meeting tomorrow in
the interests of the strikers.
Toronto, Jnne 18.,���The reports
which the officials of the C. P. R.
gave out yesterday as to the progress
of the strike are in some instances
favorable to tbe company. On the
Owen Sound branch, where most of
the men had gone out, General Superintendent Tiinnierinaii said last night
that quite a number, probably one
half, had returned to work and they
had promises of more in the morning
There are about 800 men employed
on that branch. On tbe branch line
from Woodstock to St. Thomas all
the men, about 20, Timmerman says,
are out, but at Chatham, on the main
line, there are only two crews tbat
bave quit work.
Winnipeg, June 18.���Trackmen on
the western division went out in sjm-
pathy with the strikers, numbering
250, No trackmen are working iu the
shop yardi. Special contsables, about
80, were sent out to the Pacliic division. Superintendent Leonard has
given the men 48 hours to consider
their decision and if at the end of
that time they do not teturn their
places will be permanently filled.
Police Magistrate Dawson - wus busy
swearing in special constables today
as patrolmen.
Vancouver, B.C., June 18.���A report
made to your correspondent at Superintendent Marpolc's office this evening was that the men who had struck
were giving no troulbe, but their
places were being filled constantly
by competent men. There should be
no delay in traffic and . the public
wonld be put to no danger or inconvenience. A number more special policemen had been sent up the line, but
this move had no significance and no
trouble was anticipated.
There are no new developments here
in the Trackmen's strike. As yet not
a man has gone out on the Kootenay
divisions aod there seems no likelihood of any going out. They realize
that such   an  action   on    tbeir  part pleasure.
A Long Sitting Yesterday Before
Honor Judge Forin.
The county court held a long session yesterday. The first matter disposed of was a supreme court chamber summons in Adams vs. Hickey.
ThiB was an application to sign judgment summarily on a promissory note
for 81,300 with interest since 1 SOU at
12 per cent., on the ground tbat no defence could be shown. Mr. Wheallcr
supported the application and Mr. R.
W. Hannington opposed it for defendant. The application was dismissed, and the case will have to go
to trial as His Honor was of the opinion that the facts disclosed had butter
he threshed out in open court. The
regular county court list was then
taken up. Collins vs. De Nuys���ThiB
was an action to recover 825 by an
hotelkeeper at Erie for board and
lodging. Mr. A. M. Johnson appeared for plaintiff, but the defendant
conducted his own case in person and
set up the novel defence that the Jebt
was incurred for whiskey and not for
board. The weight of evidence, however, was against him and jugdment
was given for plaintiff.
John McLeod vs. Andrew Zedler,
Mr. P. E. Wilson for plaintiff, Mr.
Jas. O'Shea for defendant���In this
case tbe plaintiff claimed for plastering a house by contract. The defendant contended that he never gave a
contract for the work but hired the
plaintiff by the day. In tbis case
there was such a direct conflict in the
evidence of the parties that Judge
Forin directed that additional witnesses should be called before giving
his decision.
Zattoni vs. Western Canada Accident Association, Mr. It. M, Macdonald for plaintiff, Mr. Hannington for
defendant- -This was an action to recover 850 for injuries sustained while
a policy was alleged to be in ( force.
Some irregulaiities in the service
of the writ and pleadings having
been set up, the matter was adjourned to the next court for trial.
Radcliff vs. Provost, Mr. H. R. Jor
and of Slocan for plaintiff, antl Mr.
A. M. Johnson for defendant���This
was an action to recover 850 for wages
in doing development work on the
black Hussar group. The defendant
contended that he never hired plaintiff to work for him at all and that
the work he did cn the claim was
merely to assist his brother in doing
assessment, work.
The evidence was flatly c.ntiadic-
tory but as the preponderance was
on tbe side of the plaintiff, judgment
was given in bis favor.
Urquhart vs. New North Folk Mining Co.. Mr. Hannington for plaintiff,
Mr. A. M. Johnson for defendant���
The plaintiff sued the defendant company for 8107 for wages for sharpening tools, etc , at the defendant's
mine near Erie. The defence set up
was in the nature of a set off, the
plaintiff being a shareholder in tbe
company and being in arrears for assessments on his shares. After hearing the evidence of all parties the
court gave judgment for plaintiff for
the major portion of bis claim, but
allowed the set-off which would leave
only a small balance in his fa nn:
The court sat till 0 p. m. then adjourned to 10.30 today when it will
probably be able to finish the remainder of the lint.

ready to fish on the 1st of July but
not a white fisherman or an Indian
is in sight. The difference in the
pi ice of fish between the fishermen
and canneis is but 2}i cents but
neither will give in. A strike is in-
evitable with possible trouble.
Ottawa, June 18.���The Dominion
Government received a telegram today
from the British Columbia Government making an offer of a settlement
of the difficulty over the flsheiies.
Attorncy-Geneial Eberts wired that
the Biitisb Columbia Government
were willing to leave the question of
sea coast fisheries for the present in
abeyance. In regard to Provincial
fisheiieson Fraser, Seena, Nans and
other rivers, it was suggested to allow
the Dominion Government to go on
collecting license fees the same as
present, on the understanding that
the matter would be left to aibitra-
tio_ and that the Dominion would
refund to the Province the amount
of such money which might be held
to belong to the Province. The Provincial Government also agreed to
amend another portion of the Provincial act, passed last session, which
may be shown to intringe on Provincial lights. A reply was sent this
afternoon from the Dominion Government to the effect that this arrangement womd be satisfactory for the
present.

of spectators were present this evening to witness the glove contest between the two lightweights, Dal
Hawkins, who has a continental reputation, and Billy Armstrong, well
known in this country. Il was to bo

A Government print, defending its
masters for their Baer I floe of public
interests in dealing with railway matters, says "any one with sufficient capital to build an independent and
OOmpetitltve railway from the Coast
to Kootenay can start the work at
once. . . . The country through
winch the road would run is liot
fenced in.'' This is childish treatment of a very grave subject, it is
true, but we have seen little if anything better to excuse the Government's course. The road would be alio
miles long, and would cost about 830.-
000 a mile. Any one, first taking
the precaution to procure a charter,
having (10,000,000 in his pockets, can
go on and build it; the country is
not fenced in. It is not brilliant,
either as a discovery or as a bald
statement !\o me ever contemplated
tbat the road would be built withont
public aid. The British Columbia
Legislature realised this as long ago
as li'jl, when it adopted _ policy of
general railway development in which
aid to this very road was indicated in
express words. The policy was re-
itciated and re-endorsed in the session of 1S08, when the Province was
pledged to a subsidy of 84.000 a mile,
and practical effect was gWen to it by
the making of a contract with Mackenzie a. Mann. This contract recognised that Dominion aid as well
as Provincial aid was necessary to its
successful construction, as the Government piovided in the written security taken for the building of the
road that the contractors should not
be compelled to proceed with the
work until Dominion aid was obtained. We therefore sec it was never
contemplated that any person, or
any company should furnish out of
their own pockets every dollar of the
money required for the construction
of a Coast-Kootenay railway. It was
an enterprise requiring and demanding public aid, and that aid stands
pledged on the faith of more than one
Legislature since 1897.
The story of the repudiation of the
Turner Government's contract with
Mackenzie A Mann by the Semlin
Government, at the Instigation of the
professional repudiator. Mr. Joseph
Martin, is comparatively fresh in the
public mind. Last year, when the
Dunsmuir Government came in, the
country was promised a vigorous railway policy, one that embraced this
Coast-Kootenay road. The V. V. and
E. charter in the meantime had gone
into the control of the Cleat Northern and Mackenzie at Mann, and .the
country looked hopefully to an independent and competitive railway. It
was only under such powerful influences that an independent road could
be assured. The Greut Northern and
Mackenzie ~: Mann weie prepared to
build it, but when time came for action Mr. Dunsniuii' balked. People
wondered, no: being ~ble to understand what-it meant, The meaning
disclosed itself In time, however. Mr.
Dunsmuir had thrown himself into tho
arms of the Canadian Pacific Company, and when it became necessary
to declare tbe terms of a contract it
was seen that they were designed
to shut out the Greut Northern; the
conditions were purposely framed to
render their acceptance impossible.
Hard as the terms were, however, the
Great Northern accepted them with
the alight modi illations thc Legislature wus shamed iuto making, witli
the singlo exception of a provision
which, if embodied in the agreement,
would have forced the contracting
company into the position of disregarding the statutory law and of
abandoning all claim to a Dominion
subsidy. -Mr. Dunsmuir and his colleagues adhered to this provision,
knowing that nothing less could save
the Canadian Pacific from competition, and the contract of course was
not made.
The intcnti.n is to throw the Coast-
Hudson's Bay Company.
KooteDay road to the Canadian Pacific. There is to be no independent,
competitive railway from the interior
to the Coast. The nature of the country and tbe general conditions make
it reasonably certain that there wi!'
never be a third trunk line, and the
course of th6 Government, therefoie
is calculated and doubtless designed to
put the whole of Southern British
Columbia absolutely at the mercy of
the Canadian Pacific That is the
policy of the "business men's Govern-
ment" that is now in power at Victoria. A Royal Commission appointed to inquire into railway conditions
in South Africa have reported that
"it is injurious that all the trunk
railway lines should be in the monopoly of one company." In British Columbia it is thought to be beneficial���
at least to tbe monopoly company and
thc politicians, and especially to the
starving rats of private members who
went up to make all they could out of
their votes.
UMBRELLAS
_AND_
There are newspapers in Ontario
tbat know more of the intentions of
the Ross Government than The Toronto Mail; but Tbe Mail is as likely as
any to pick up current political gossip, and it says tbat a reconstruction
of the Cabinet is freely spoken of.
This, as far as it goes, tende to confirm the significance which The
Miner read into the announcement
that Mr. Samuel Casey Wood is about
to return to political life. Tbe success of the Dominion Opposition in
Ontario last November bas evidently
produced a feeling of alarm inside the
fortifications at Toronto, which the
Provincial Liberals have held continuously for twenty-eight years.
Mr. Arthur Chamberlain, in a recent address, said American competition was a bogey of politicians and
journalists; what British manufacturers had most to fear were the worries of modern legislation. "They
were inspected to death, and hampered at every step." The wise men at
Victoria who take into their Hands
the fortunes of the mining industry
of tbe Province might do worse than
consider this. If blessed with only a
one-eyed power of observation, they
may be able to discern tbat mine
owners and operators in British Columbia are being inspected to death
and hampered at every step. Very often a good working policy is to
leave things alone.
SEVEN   YEARS IN BED.
"Will wonders ever cease?" inquire
the friends of Mrs. L. Pease, of Lawrence, Kan. They knew she bad
beeen unable to leave her bed in seven
years on account of kidney and liver
troubles, nervous prostration and general debility ; but "Three bottles of
Electric Hitters enables me to walk,"
she writes, "and in three months 1
felt like a new person.' Women suffering from Headache, Kackache, Nervousness. Sleeplessness, Melancholy,
Fainting nnd Dizzy spells will find
it a priceless blessing. Try it. Satisfaction guaranteed by Canada Drug

OPENING OF
THE SYNOD
Last Evening's   Missionary
Meeting at St. Saviour's
Church.
Gathering of the Clergy of
the  Kootenays at
Nelson.
The Diocesan Synod of the Episcopal church Wiih npenod last evening by
a missionary meeting at St. Saviour's
Sunday School. All the clergy who
have yet arrived to attend the synod
were present and a few of the lay
members. The meeting wua opened
by a prayer and hymn, followed by
nn address by llisliop Dart, of New
Westminster, lie dealt in an earnest
manner of the work of the Society
for the I-opngiitloi: of the Uospel in
the 200 years of its existence, and
narrated it numbei of interesting incidents of the missionary tield. He also
stated that despite the fact that
the demands upon the finances of the
Boolcty had been gieatly increased
during the past twelve months by
the eomse of events in Soutli Afiica
and China, yet the society had decided to give an indented grant, to Kootenay for the next 'three years.
Rev. Mr. Robins, of Greenwood,
was then called upon. He delivered
an Interesting address dealing principally with the work of the Junior
Clergy's Missionary Society, a brunch
of tbo paient society, wliich had done
great work in arousing enthusiasm
in missionary effort among the junior
elegymen.
Archdeacon I'entreath, one of the
best known clergymen iu liritisli Columbiu, and particularly in the Kootenays, then lucidly explained in a
few words what some of the things
that the Society for the |l'ropogatiun
of the (lospel was doing at tho present
time. There were 770 missionaries
supported by it throughout the world,
and of these Canada had l'ID. In the
schools of the society in Asia and Africa M,Olio children at the present
time were receiving a Christian education. In BritishjiColuinbia tne sc ���
uiety hud been most liberal in its aid,
and despite as the bishop had said,
tbe greatly increased demands upon
it,, had yet added to its yearly grant
the sum of ��110 for the Kootenay,
Archdeacon 1'entreuth spoke highly
of the parish of Cranbrook, .which,
although it had only hud a resident
clergyman appointed last April,
had already become self-supporting.
He also mentioned aeveral other parishes aud the good wor1* they had
done towards attaining the same end.
Another favorable feature in church
���work in the Kootenays was the fact
tha*. during the past year nearly every
parish in the diocese had contributed
towards the funds of the society.
llisliop Dart then touched on what
the 300 years effort nf the S. P. G.
had done to better tho condition of
the world, and how the Christian religion wns so different from any other
system of religion in that not satisfied with enjoving its blessing alone,
Its adherents tried, and were, spreading it to the uttermost parts of the
earth.
After another prayer and hymn the
meeting then dispersed with the Benediction.
|ll��fore the members dispersed Rev.
II. S. Akehurst announced that
through the courtesy of the officers of
tho Nelson Club the privileges had
been extended to all the clergy during
the sitting of the Synod.
A meeting of the Sunday School
committee of the Diocese was held ut
the close of the Missionary gathering.
Today there will be a celebration
of the Holy Communion ut 0.15 a. m.,
when all the clergy and lay delegates attending the synud arc expected to be present. At 10 o'clock the

A LUCKY FIND.
What proved to be a more profitable find than gold happened the other day to a traveller from San Francisco, while nt lunch in one of the
leading restaurants in Nelson, tie
ordered a portion of Pumpkin pie,
when to his nstonishment his nppe-
titie, which he hnd lost fifteen years
ago in Arizona, suddenly returned to
hiin, with renewed vigor. The pie
had. a very solid texture and a rich
mellow flavor. The cook informs us
that it was made from "The Morse
Pumpkin Flour." None other just as
good.    Insist on "The Morse Brand."

A consignment of locally pr.>duced
fruit will be shipped to Nelson toduy
when a Shipment of strawberries will
be made from C. W. Busk's ranch
to Mr. (leo. Hell. The nautral productiveness of the land in the immediate neighborhood of the city has been
again and again demonstrated and
the above statement will veiify the
fact that this part of the Kootenays
is not all barren rock and dead sea
water.
The meeting of the Imperial Development Syndicate which was expected
to take place this week has been postponed until the 4th of July when it is
expected that important business will
come up for consideration The company are about lo dispose ot their
property to a wealthy company who
have made them an offer. It is understood that tlie contract only awaits
the endorsation of the shareholders
to make the deal complete, and the
amount of money in the deal is said
to be in the .neighborhood of a quarter of a million dollars.
IT
COULD NOT WOO.
A Goddess That Would Not Be Won.
The Creator, in making so many
kinds of people naturally made some
that have immense ambition and desire for work, physical and mental.
Authors, writers and brain-workers
are generally hard working poeple,
frequently they exhaust vitality so
fast that they cannot rebuild.
Food experts have perfected a special food called Grape-Nuts for brain
workers. The makers selected from
field grains the proper elements which
naturally enter into rebuilding brain
and nerve cent.rs.
A famous woman of West Baven,
Conn., whom perhaps you will rec
ogoize because of the location, but
who requests that her name be kept
from print in this connection writes:
Perhaps you would like to know
of my expjrience with the restoring
power of your wonderful Grape-Nuts
Food. 1 bave been a tireless worker.
Life was full of possibilities. I had
a constitution of iron and why not
work'.' I lived to the fullest limit of
my power, following every pursuit
with ardor, painting, poetry, writing
of books, journalism and lecturing.
The days wre passed iu literary
work and the nights at concerts, theaters and receptions. I suddenly
dropped out, a mental and physical
wreck. Ambition died and hope went
with it. Religion became odious.
The world grew dark. It became a
'Charnel House full of unclean bones,
not Godlike and our Father's.'
I bad no desire for food. I could
not woo the 'Goddess .Sleep that knits
up the raveled sleeve of care.' I contemplated a weak solution, a leap into the Unknown, when one day a
friend in Vale who knew my deplorable condition said. 'Do you know,
that Grape-Nuts Food has done a
great deal for me,' and told the details. I finally followed his suggestion and began using it. That was
one year ago. I wish you could see
me now. The neighbors say I do the
work of ten women. I go to bed with
the hens and sleep like a top.
I hear 'the breeze call of incense
breathing more,' my muscles are like
Iron, and my baCk of steel. 1 am as
alert as tbe sparrow witli whom 1
converse e~ery morning us he seeks
his matitutiii.il worm.
I ascribe all of this change, and
justly, to Grape Nuts Food and
wisdom in the economy of force."
Theru Is a good sound reason for
such a change as described above.
Grapo-Nuts Food is made of the selected elements of wheat and bailey
that aro intended by Nature to le-
build the soft gray matter in the
brain and nerve cells throughout the
body. This food is so prepared that
it presents these elements in perfect
condition for immediate assimilation.
The food is thoroughly cooked ut the
factory, and should always be served
just as it comes from Iho package
with a little cream. Do not attempt
to stew it but seive it without cooking except when combined with certain puddings and desserts, and oven
then the cooking is not necessary,
except to prepare other ingredients
aside from tlie Qiape-Nuts,

A carload of ri .���_ billed to the local
Chinese merchants arrived in Nelson
yesterday.
The line men are stringing the telephone lines on the new poles along
Josephine street.
Very few prospectors are left in

A gang of men are busily at work
putting a sewer on the lower end of

The water nf the lake is still slowly
fulling, but will probably begin to
show the effect of the present warm
weather by tonight.
Teams were engaged yesterday hauling away the driftwood accumulated
on the C. P. R. tracks by Cottcnwood
Creek during the recent freshet.
Tom Doyle has rented the Home
Teraferance hotel and will run it as a

The City lawns and flower beds are
showing the effects of Ibe improvement in the weather. June is mw
very agreeably making us acquainted

The proprietor of the shooting gallery containing moving animals,
birds, etc., next to Patenaude's store,
was packing up his outfit yesterday
preparatory to moving.
Fishing is steadily improving in the
lake and since Saturday there have
been an average of about fifty fishermen daily trying their luck between
Nelson and the   bridge.
Although there has only been four
days of warm weather people are already grumbling about the heat.
What these same individuals will do
when they leave this world for their
next home it is hard to say.
Mr. Geo. H. Herron, who is stopping at the Hume at present, arrived
Monday from the Hazel May group
near Crawford Bay. It is a copper-
gold property and the results so far
have been most promising. A force
of four men have been at work on it
for the last two months and have several tons of choice ore ready for shipment.
The Nelson Hardware Co. have cn
hand an interesting and valuable
article for the disciples of Issac Walton in the form of a new and attractive bait for fishing. It is in tbe
form of perserved minnows which arc

of the most valuable baits in use for

Prospects For the Flour Mill For
Nelson Very Good.
Mr. Joseph Jackson, who has been
in the eity for some time in connection with the locating of a flour mill
here, receivwd a letter yesterday from
Mr. B. Friel of Regina, for whom he
is acting.statmg that th3 lat.er would
be in Nelson abont the end of the
month. Mr. Jackson said tbat he was
fully satisfied with the site, if all arrangements could be made satisfactorily, and believed that Nelson was admirably situated for a mill of the
nature it was intended to put up. In
the course of a conversation he stated that at present only the cheaper
grades cf flour could he handled here,
as owing to freight rates it did not
pay to handle any others, in competition with the cheap American
Hours. With, a mill-here, Nelsou and
Kootenay firms wonld be able to handle .lour made from the best Manitoba
hard wheat, at the same prices as
now charged for a greatly inferior
product. He said that at present
wheat, from Regina was shipped east
to Hat l'ortiige for milling and then
shipped here from the mill at a cost
of 55 cents p��r hundred weight. With
wheat shipped direct here at the
same cost that it would take to send J
it to the mill in the east, that 55 cents
per hundred would he saved. As to
the cost of milling here it would be
less than in Regina, as there was!
cheaper fuel, water power instead   of!
steam, a first class local market and
excellent shipping facilities.
When asked if he thought there
would be sufficient water for power
at the site mentioned he said that
there was ample, that the waste water
from the electric light flume alone
would be enough. If there was a
shortage in tbe water at any time
with electric, power hut a stone's
throw away it would be an easy matter to connect.
Mr. Friel. the principal in the business, is a practical millwright of 35
yeais experience, and has thoroughly
investigated the" prospects here, and
feels fully satisfied tbat a large aud
profitable business can quickly be
worked up in flour.

Why we are enabled to manufacture Tailor-
made garments ready-to-wear.
Because we have the Experience 1
The Proprietors ofthe "Royal Brand" have been engaged
!n the development of tailor-made garments for many years and
only after perfection had been attained were the public given an
opportunity to purchase this clothing.
Because we have the Foreman and Designer I
Who must necessarily possess experience and taste. Needless to say the head of this department in the manufacture of
"Royal Brand" clothing possesses both.
Because we have the Makers 1
Those engaged in putting together "Royal Brand" clothing
are master hands. Much depends on the making and ordinary
tailoring would not hold its shapliness nor give the wear which
is demanded from these garments.
.   In future this label will be attached to all garments and
will be found in the left hand pocket of the coat.
