spicy character.
Census returns will not be ready
till September 1. It had been expected that bulletins would be issued by
July 2, but the assistant commissioner
stated that events had arisen which
would preclude such an early publication of returns. What the exact nature of these new developments may
be can only ho conjectured. Hut the
commissioner will not, he says, give

piecemeal, and the whole will wait
until Sopteinber.

New York, June   27.���The  Journal
of Commerce says:   Little information
is obtainable in reference to the  proposed consolidation of salmon canners
of the Purine   coast,   which  has been
hanging   fire for something over   two
months.    The repoit that several representatives of the canneries bad  left
the coast for New   York   for   tbe purpose of conferring with the  financiers
is confirmed. It is, however, too early
to say whether   thc deal will be actually   consummated   as   there   is   still
considerable work to be dose.    At the
same time the   fact that these gentlemen are coming indicates   that  there
is at I .si! t a prospect   that plans   will
be   carried  out.    It is conceded   that
the Alaska Packers' Association is not
interested.   It   is   claimed,    however
if the deal goes through on  the   basis
now  being   discussed   that   the   new
company   would   control some 70   per
cent of the   business.    It   is   not   intended to make any change in tbe authorized capitalization of the company
from   that  proposed   some   time ago,
namely 812,500,000 preferred stoek,812,
500,000 common   stoek and  87,000,000
bonds,    The issued amounts of   stocks
and bonds, however, will be considerably less, the   actual  amount  having
not been yet decided upon.

In Many Places the Neglected
Road-bed Is Thoroughly
Mayor Carlson ot Kaslo Needs Laborers For  Lardo Line.
Mayor G.A. Carlson of Kaslo,was In
the city yesterday In connection with
the purchase of supplies and the employment of men to work on his contract on the Lardo railway. Mr. Carlson has 350 men now at work and expects to Increase this lorce to 1,000
men within a few weeks. The work
at present consists of olearng thc
light of way, cutting, filling, grading
und bridging. His contract extends
over 30 miles of country easy to build,
tbe grades being very light and the
rock work not so heavy as usually encountered in building railroads in
mountainous countries. The engineers have laid out the line In a very
ingenious manner, taking full ad-
vnatage of every natural facility tbat
the contour of the dlstriat provides.
In this way the work haa been made
Mr. Carlson la In immediate need
of a large number of men, being able
to put four or five hundred to work.
He will give employment to any good
laborers who report nt his headquarters at Dowser. He leaves for tbe
north this morning. i
The strike situation is becoming
more acute as it continues. The service on tbe main line is reported to be
practically tied up. The sitnation in
the neighborhood of Calgary has be
come somewhat strained. When the
strike took place all *he Galicians in
the employ of the railway vacated the
boarding cars. As they had neither
food, money, or accommodation they
were naturally In a precarious condition. To help them out of their del-
emna and to avoid the necessity of
their having to give in to the company the citizens of Calgary are at
the present time running a monster
relief camp and are supporting the
foreigners. Some empty cars on
Tuesday last went through the bridge
ac Morley, falling a distanc of 02
feet. The trestle seems to have been
in an unfinished condition when the
strike was declared, and although
erected and thought to be passable has
given way. On account of this in ad
dition to the condition of the track in
that division,it is quite probable that
the traffic will have^to be diverted to
the Crows' Nest road,- unless the condition of the latter line compel the
trainmen to refuse to take their trains
over it.
It is said that there is only one man
at work on the road at the present
time between McLeod and Kootenay
Landing.. The pump men did not go
out on strike ut the commencement of
tbe struggle but all are now out and
the railway company ure offering 810
per day for men tc take their places,
so as to be able to keep, the passenger
trains running. One man was hired
from Breekenridge A Lund's tie camp
at Michel, at an advance on the wages
be was receiving but soon resigned
as the Dago's made it too hot for him
to continue. Section foremen are ie-
ported to have been offered an increase of 8200 per month on their
regular wages to take out their gangs
but cannot be prevailed upon to
do so.
Some excitement was created tbe
other day when a man of the name of
J. Gosling, wbo six months ago was
one of the most rabid union men, and
who worked hard to obtain prominence, was summoned before the
magistrate on the charge of threatening a man by pointing a pistol at
him. There was a large crowd of
strikers at the trial and although
Gosling got off he hnd few sympathisers. He admitted having the pistol in
his possession but denied having
pointed It at thc plain ti IV.
Telegrams received yesterday by the
local committee of the strikers from
various points on the main line reporting that things were much in the
same coi dition, except that tlie heavy
rains were knocking out the road bed
badly. At ull points the men seemed
jubilant as a rule, although some are
beginning to feel the pinch pretty
keenly. Muny of the strikers in Nelson have families living here and
their wages did not permit of keeping
much ahead, but all express their
determination to stay out until a fa
vorable decision is reached. Telegrams from Montreal yesterday stated
that the company's officials still refused to meet the strike leaders to confer
on tbe situation.
Montreal, June 37.���Senator Villon-
euve died this evening at his residence, from kidney trouble.

Peculiar Method of Mining on
a Windermere Lead
Sand   Carbonates  of   Lead
That Can Be Taken Out
With a Shovel.
Toronto,   June 27.���Mark   Seluosky
wus  drowned  today   In   a    pond  ut
Hanlnn's island.
Mr. S. S. Fowler has returned from
a tiip to the Windermere country
whero he visited the Paradise group
of claims cn Toby creek, in which
he is interested with H. C. Hammond
of Toronto, and R. Randolph Bruce,
of Peterboro, B. Ci Mr. Bruce is
manager of the property. About 850
tons of ore have been shipped from
thc Paradise whicli is one of the most
most notable properties in the Province. An incline shaft has been sunk
175 feet on the claims without a stick
of powder being used. This will sound
like a fairy story but it is none tbe
less truth for (he syndicate is mining
lead carbonates which can be literally
shovelled out and put into sacks
ready for shipment. It is known as
sand carbonates as it is about the
consistency of sand. It is between
two well defined walls and on account
of the remarkably cheap method of
mining that can be adopted, pays to
ship a long distance although it is
not particularly high grade. In no
other mine In the Province has tbis
kind of ore teen, encountered in such
a large body. A little was found in
the North Star property in East Kootenay- The lead carbonates, so called, mined ln the Slcoan are galena.
Mr. Fowler expects that as development continues on the Paradise, they
will run through the sand carbonates
and encounter, galena. Millions of
tons of this variety of ore were mined
in Colorado, particularly in the vicinity of Leadville.
Work on the Paradise will be actively continued this summer under
the direction of Mr. Bruce. There is
a wagon road np Toby oreok from
Peterboro within u few miles of tbe
propert" and it will be continued this
The construction of the wagon road
up Horse Thief creek in the same
district will open up a large number
of properties. The Red Line company
is adding 815,000 to the Government's
815,000 to build the road from Peterboro to its property. The Red Line
group is reported to be very rich and
the construction of the road will
probably lead to early shipments.
M>-. Fowler is of the opinion that
good transportation facilities would
speedily mean the development of a
large number ot promising properties in the Windermere conntry. On
Toby and Horse Thief creeks this season great activity will be diplayed.
A dispatch to The Miner last night
was as follows:
"Montroal, June 91,���At the annual
meeting of the North Star Mining
Co., yesterday it was decided, awing
to the low price for lead and excessive charges for smelting and transportation, to curtail the shipping ut
present, I). D. Mann was re-elected
Mr. Frank Robins," manager of tlie
North Star,who is attending the mine
owneis' meeting, stated to The Miner
that thc shipments from the mine
hnd already been curtailed from
nearly 2,000 tons a month to 1,000
tons. The company is under contract
to ship the latter amount monthly to
the Trail, Nelson and Everett smelters. They will continue to ship 1,-
000 tons a month. Thc situation of
the property makes the ore easy to
get at and only about 35 men are on
the pay roll. If the hardships under
which silver-lead mining is laboring
are removed the staff of men will bo
greatly increased and tlie shipments
speedily doubled.
Mr. David Heap, secretary of the
Last Chance Mining Co., who was
stopping at the Phair lust night, in
answer to a question of a Miner reporter, stated thnt the crosscut tunnel Ib now In 1,400 feet. ThiB long
tunnel will traverse the whole
group, and is expected to open np
nuiuy veins  of   greut value.   The re
sults so far have been very promising.
When completed the crosscut will
open the claims in u very thorough
manner nnd will be one of the longest
in Canada.
Like other Slocan had properties
the Last Chance is noi shipping at
present, Work being confined to diiv-
lng tlie crosscut on which 18 men sue
employed. Compressed air is used
tor working the drills. The property
is in u position to mnintain huge

The annual meeting of the company
will be held about the middle of July.
Dr. VV. A. Hendryx, president of
the company, und Mrs. Hendryx are
also stopping ut tbe Phair. After
the annual meeting Dr. Hendiyx will
go to Iloise City, Idaho.
Mine Owners' Association Is
Holding Sessions ln
the City.
Goo. B. McAulay, managing director
of the Cariboo mine, Camp McKinney,
and Frunk F. Mcnilcihall, manager of
the Rossland branch of the Jenckes
Machine coinpany,were in Midway on
Thursday on their way to Camp McKinney, says the Advance.
It is thc intention of tlie Cariboo
company to purchase 40 additional
tsamps for its mill, which will bring
the capacity of the mill up to sixty
On Friday Messrs. McAulay and
Mendenhall were going on to Fair-
view to inspect thc Smuggler twenty
stamp mill, which is owned by the
Jenckes Machine company. If the
plant be in a satisfactory condition
it will be purchased by the Cariboo
company and token to Camp McKinney,and as it bus been used but very
little since its inst.alliil.inn at Fair-
view, it is altogether likely that it is
nearly as good as new.
The mine never looked as well as it
does at the present time. It hus at
least 75,000 tons of ore in sight that
will run about 812. During Mr.
McAulny's stay ut McKinney he will
lay out pluns for sinking a new four
compartment shaft, together with let
ting a contract for the new hoist, with
sinkimr capacity of fifteen hundred
Some C. P. R. Oflice Men   Engage   in
Laying Rails.
Yesterday afternoon a Miner reporter noticed a group of men working at
the disabled switch at the west end of
the C. P. R. yard. On appiouehing
to see if the strike hud been settled it
appeared as if the section men had
donned boiled shins, high collars and
their Sunday best to celebrate the
return of peace. As the reporter came
up to the scene of activity the mystery
was still further increase.I hy hearing
one "navvy," who was swinging n
ponderous sledge hummer, shout,
"There that'll do d���n it," nnd n
mate, similarly equipped, answered
with a strong English accent, "No it
won't, hit it again with thut beastly
mallet." Both of them with thut fell
to pounding un iinolVendir.g clamp

bent, in u manner that made up iu
force what it rucked in regularity und
By this time thc workmen had proved to be lioadinaster Lewis, and
Messis. Freeman Lake, Weir, R. H.
Moe, and another whose name could
not be ascertained,nil from the general
offices of the 0. P. R.. It appeared
that owing to the greut need for the
west switch being repaired, tho indefatigable roadmastur hud gathered to
gether n gang of reeruils from the
oflice and with them wub doing hi*
best to put the repairs through.
The job appeared to be n particularly tough one. Engine 584 is extremely heavy, even for an engine, and in
its course along the ties it had snap,
ped each one it hail ~>me in contact
with in lis journey uf a ear length,
besides bending the clump nnd connecting rods which keep the rails ut
tho proper distance apnrt, und twisting the slide rails slightly. The rails
had first to be loosened from the ties.
then jacked up to allow of tie broken
ties being removed mid new ones substituted, the bars to he straightened
and mils changed und n few othei interesting operations to be managed.
How fnr they got before darkness
enmo it is hard to sny, but one trackman, who was probably biassed, said
thut they only hit a spike once out of
three blows on the uvemge, sr there
is likely   lots   of work left   for todny.
When the participators in this work
rise to be presidents and general man-
agers, the present pi act ice will doubtless prove Invaluable when they are
called upon to officiate nt the impos
ing ceremony of "driving the Inst
Market of Silver Lead Ores
a Question That Is Bothering It.
The Mine Owners' Association Is
meeting in Nelson. Just what the
gathering is for is not made public
but the large attendance of representatives of the leading lead propeities
gives color to the repoit, circulated
persistently of late, that the mine
owners wero getting somewhat desperate over the continued mobility to
maiket lead ores, aud were going to
do something towards providing a
market of their own. Various remedies hav been suggested, among them
the erection ot smelters by the mines
and the prospect of a lead refinery being established in Canada shortly
makes this scheme more feasible.
It is well known that some of the
mine owners are outsopken in favor of
building smelters of their own and
efforts have been made to huve the
compnnies tuke action in this direction. Another suggested remedy is
the formstion of whnt might be called
a selling association, composed of
the mines which have lend ores for
sale nnd which would appoint a sales
agent whose duty it wonld, be to find
a market, whether local or foreign,
und look after the sales of ore. This
would uiuko the companies stronger
through unity and more able to get
their rights when acting together iu
securing markets.
It is ulso said that the present meeting may have something to do with
Ihe strike at the Northport smeller.
Bernard Macdonuld, manager of thc
LeRoi mine and tne smelter, is attending the meeting and his latest
trouble will probably be di.cussed.
The asociation held u session last
evening in tbe board room of the London A B. C. Gold Fields, and about
midnight adjourned until thiB morning. Those attendng it stated that
they hnd absolutely nothing for publication. The sessions will be continued this morning and will probubly

Sir Claude Macdonald says that dining the five years he served as British Minister in the Flowery Kingdom
he never saw a drunken Chinaman.
Perhaps it is this intemperate sobriety that makes the Chinese so unpopular in some locnlities in Hritish Columbia.

The Washington Government are
terribly annoyed over the report that
they had asked to have the Alaska
boundary matter submitted to the arbitration of Russia. The dispatch
omits to explain the particular cause
of their annoyance, but we suppoBe it

everything their own wuy.
Since tho Good (Jueen's Jubilee Canada has figured lurgely in British
estimation, and for the past year its
name is supposed to have been in
every mouth in the United Kingdom.
Yet when Punch introdu.es Miss Canada to the War Minister,she is clothed
in blanket and moccasins,witli a flaming bead-dress of feathers. Perhaps it
was the excessive heat of the pust few
weeks that caused it to overlook the
snowshoes. We wonder if Englishmen
at home will ever cense to regard
Indians and snow as the special types
of Canada?

that he is too weak of purpose to

the heuit of the
time with customers, spectators, and
idlers. The sheriff, a police detective,
and several other police ofllcers were
present, witnessed the fracas from the
beginning and towards the end of it
interfered to separate the combatants. They weie no more than any
other spectators, however, no attention being paid to their authority as
peace oSicers, and the shooting went
merrily on. Such a thing could never
take place in Caoada among Canadians, thanks to that inbred and deep-
seated respect for the majesty of the
law whicli prevails in every civilized community that rejoices in the
protection of the British ling. The
presence of a representative of the
law, who demands peace in the King's
name, will overawe any brawlers leas
thun hardened and desperate criminals. That there is a deplorable want
of this respect among average Americans is due to the laxity of thc authorities themselves iu punishing
offences uguinst the lnw.

Junior Four-Oared   Erent   Now Down
to the Finals.
Yesterday afternoon in spite of
wind and rain, the junior four-oared
crews rowed their preliminary heats
and semi-linals and as a result tho
Nase and l'ullen crews row off 3n
Monday for possession ot the handsome prizes.
The first heat rowed yesterday was
between Fraser aud Nase. Forbes was
scheduled to row Fraser but he defaulted and Fraser was consequently
advanced a Stage and rowed Nase,
who was a bye, The crews got away
well together and each rowed a good
race, but Nase was too much for his
opponents and won handily by u couple of lengths. The Flaser crew never pulled together before.
When the boats were being overhauled for the next neat a seat fell
overboard aud of course sunk, This
caused considerable delay during
which time the bottom of thu lako
was scraped with fish poles. Finally
another seat was secured and the l'ullen and ~omorville crews lowed their
heat.. It was a walk over for Pullen
as his opponents gave up when they
were opposite the city wharf leaving
l'ullen to paddle home a winner.
The Siminerville crew had trouble
with their slides.
J Mc Health and Nuwpurt then took
the boats. The heat went to the
former who proved much too stiong
for the other and won out by a couple
of lengths.
l'ullen and Melieath next rowed
their semi-final heat. Tho former crew
pulled splendidly and won by a good

Heretofore tbe zebra has been considered unmanageable and it remained
for Norris A Row, the world's
greatest animal trainerB to prove Ibis
to be erroneous. Alexas is a genuine
African specimen, and Norris a. Rowe
will forfeit 810,000 to any charitable
institution, if Alexas is not as represented to be. Some years ago a certain circus advertised a team of trained zebras, but they were Qunggus, a
species closely related to the zebra,
the only distinction being tbat the
zebra is striped to the hoof and tho
Qusggra's legs ore perfectly white.
Alexas will bo driven in tho now big
free spectacular street carnival and
children's fairyland parotic will be
given on the morning of the exhibition at 11 o'clock. No mutter where
you have been, If you havo not seen
Al.xas you never saw u trained African zebra. This feature alone stamps
Norris & Rowe as the greatest animal
trainers of the age.

The accident on the Crow's Nest
road last evening is not as serious as
it was first supposed. The engineer,

progressing favorably. He was badly
injured in the groin but the injuries
are not regarded as likely to be at-
t.'iided with any fatal consequences.
No knowledge of the perpetrators of
the tampering with the switch is as
Vet to hand and although the company
have offered a reward oi $1,000, so
far no arrests have been made.
; Start tho Day Eight.
The breakfast is perhaps the most
important meal of tbe day. Europeans usually eat a very light break
fast. Many Americans have stomach
trouble because thev eat too much or
focd of not the right sort for the
morning meal. An ideal breakfast is
a baked apple or some other fruit, a
dish of (Irape-Nuts Food with a little
cream, and a cup of Postum Food
Leave off all meat, hot biscuits, etc.
tlrape-Nuts and Postum both furnish the phosphate of potash together
with other food elements that go to
make up brain and nerve centers as
well as muscle and tissue, and both
can be digested by the stomach of an
It is the part of wisdom nowadays
to use fooa! especially selected for
nourishment and that can be easily
digested. Ten days trial of this
breakfast nnd you will feel as though
you had "cleaned house."
Tlie exhilaration of bounding health
is worth a hundred times the small
outlay of time and care in arranging
such a breakfast.
Mrs. Eiley, 1215 Chesnut St., Camden, N. J., says she formerly breakfasted on chops, hot biscuits and
coffee, "After such a meal I would
have severe pains and they would
last sometimes far into the night"
She finally determined on a change in
her diet and hud for breakfast only
Orape-Nuts Food and a little cream
with I'ostum Food Coffee. _h_ says,
"In a very few days tho intestinal
trouble all disappeared. I have regained my old-time weight, lostj the
irritability and nervousness, and life
takes on a new aspect.
When I feel a little exhausted in
the day I simply drop everything and
stir a spoon'ul of Qrape-NutS in a little cruarn or hot milk,and in ten minutes I have regained my vigor and
Orape-Nuts Food is best when served just as it comes from the package
without any cooking whatever.
The food has already been cooked ten
or twelve hours in the process of manufacturing it. When made up into
puddings, pies and other desserts it
does not hurt it to be cooked again,
but when served simply as a breakfast
food it should never bo cooked. On
the contrary I'ostum Coil'ee absolutely
must be boiled 16 or 30 minutes befoie the food value and ilavor can be
brought out.
There was a large turnout of the

The reception committee of the Dominion Day celebration met last
evening in II. II. Cameron's olilco. It
was decided to serve lucheou on Monday and Tuesday in the Macdonald
block, where the guests of the city
will be entertained. All the visiting
public officials of other towns and the
outside iiewspapn- men will be guests
of the committee while here. Representatives of the reception committee

J. Lonsdale Doupe, assistant land
commissioner of the Canadian Pacific, is at the Phair. lie has spent
some time in the Lardo country super-1
intending the work there that comes'
under his department. A townsite, !
named Selkirk, is being laid out at
the south east end of Trout Lake,
which will be the present terminus of
the road. The townsite will be put
on the market in a few weeks The
company will build freight sheds and
wharves at Trout Lake City, at the
other end of the lake this season. Mr.
Doupe leaves for the east in a couple
of days.
The new lap streak boats of the
boat club arrived in the city on Wednesday evening from Vancouver and
are now safely housed in the boat
liouse. The boatmen express themselves as more than pleased with their
purchase and say that the boats aie
much superior to the ones they had
expected. They are about 35 feet
long and two Met wide. The seats
are constructed on the sliding scale
principle with patent foot holds. The
boats weigh about 1.10 pounds and are
of most excellent workmanship. They
were launched yesterday afternoon
and gave great satisfaction. The
crews will practice in them during
the next few days when a decision
will be made as to whether they will
be used at tbe approaching  regatta.
The barges on_wh)flh the fancy dress
ball will be given on the evening of
the Dominion Day celebrations will
be anchored in mid stream and a tug
will ply between the wharf and the

between the C. F. R. wharf and a
place near to One Mile point.' Illuminated buoys will be placed at the required intervals to define the course
and it is expected tbat the procession
will take the form of au eight or
double eight. At 8.30 the barge will

convenince of those attending the
Government Engineer Keefer, who
is in town on Government business,
last evening sitting in the comfortable
reception hall of Ihe Phair hotel, told
some interesting reminiscences of the
changes that had taken place in the
appearance of Nelson since his first
visit here, which had been in connection with running the line for the Columbia at Koo.enay from Robson to
Nelson. At tbat time tbe accommodations for travellers in the present city
were so scarce that visitors of any
consequence were generally invited co
the rough shacks and tents of tbe engineering staff, on the site of the old
shipyards. Most of tbe streets were
but trails winding around the rocks
and up and down the ravines with
which the townsite was libeially cut
up. It was only a rough minir.g
camp, and looked one of the last
places where such a handsome city as
in bere now, would be located.

had been allowed with costs. Thc suit
involved the title to the Native Silver
Frac. lying between the Arlington
and Builington mineral claims near
Slocan City. The property was of
considerable value on account of its
location. The defendant contended
that the mineral claim of the plaintiff was fraudulent and invalid on account of having, beeu located in the
interests of a previous owner without
having obtained the consent of the
Gold Commissioner, and through defect of stiking in not showing the approximate compass bearing of the location line. It was also contended
that the plaintiff did not find any
mineral in place on tbe claim and
that the free miners' certificates were
defective in having been issued by E.
M. Hafldllnnds, of Sandon, who was
neither Gold Commissioner nor mining

Thet'O is a great advantage in painting if
you have good paiut.

greater, so the advantage
is plain.
