Eleventh  Year
How the GHy Lighting Question   Is   Generally
Much Importance Attached to
Value of the Lighting
A Minor reporter yesterday spoke to
n number of Nelson oitizons regarding tlu-ir opinion of the proposed
changes in tim lighting system of tlie
eity uml as to what arrangement they
thought would bo best suited to the
city's needs ut the present time. Pew
card to have their names given in
connection with their opinions, but
tlio great majority sccmoil to think
alike on the principles involved in
���Jin matter.
All said thnt a bettor lighting system must be had for the coming winter thun wns had last year in this

the Honnington sompany there seomod

the city is reasonably certain to he
steady, yet with the preuent positions
of things in British Columbia it
wouhl be vory unwise (ev,!H if it wer?
possible) to raise the large amount of
money that would be required to put
in 11 powor plnnt at the fulls on tho
Kootenay, and saddle tho city with a
mad of taxation that would seriously
injure Us standing. On the other
humi, if the city entored into any arrangement with a company thnt
wouhl in prnetiee if not in theory,
give that company tho franchise to
supply the eity with light in case of
thu city's making rapid progress
again it might iind it a good deal
harder to call thc nrrangement off
than it wus to enter Into It. The city
tliould secure what extra power they
neeil from the Bonnington people for
a year 01 two, as is necessary until it

Jacob Dover wanted light for his
place of business, good light, nnd he
wanted it right away, and if there
were no other way of getting that
than by renting power from the power
company ho would favor doing so.
Notwithstanding tbis he does not

Control of the lighting or power busi'
ness within tbe city, that was a valuable franchise worth probably hundreds of thousands of dollars. If a
lawyer could draw up an agreement
strong onongh to prevent the company
fiom getting any lusting rights he
saw no objec ion to leasing power
from the power "ompiiny. He thought
however, that the price asked per
horse power waa rather high. It
would be safest for the city to take
the power at tho eity limits so that
there wonld he no rights conceded to

Louisville, Ky., Oct. 32. ���Hundreds
of people attempted to rush out of the
Tempi-*- theatre because the cry of fire
was raised when a little Same was
seen about the polyscope machine. In
the scramble scores of people were
knocked down and more thnn twenty

that two or three wiil not survive
their injuries. It wus about 3.30
o'clock, just after tho first act of
"Tennessee's Pardnor." when the cry
of fire was raised. Women and cliil-

theatre attaches noted witb great
coolness. Thc orohestra played and
Charles T. Rates, a member of tbe

Rosseau said the government had

was disposed to continue its examination of tne question of miners' pensions aud sOe if it could not incorporate it in the general question of pensions. As to the eight hours work per
day, tho government, the preimer
said, was desirous of ameliorating
conditions everywhere later, but it
was impossible to settle hastily upnn

Dispatches from Ashcroft reports
that there is great excitement there
over the recent discovery of rich
pl-.cers on the north fork of the
Horsed/, river, which lias been named
Empire.cieck by the fortunate diB
coverers. The discovery party oousiBts
of six m?n and they state that thev
did not take out less than 8ve cents
from any single pan and they got
as high as *>.*! to the pan. Tbey had
not prospectetd to any great extent
and these results would indioate that
the ground is very rich. The glories
of Williams creek may be repeated on
Empire creek and many fortunes
taken out of the rich ground oy the
miners and it is no wonder, therefore,
that there is a rush for the new
Eldorado and that fifty of the residents of Ashcroft have started for the
scene of the find in the hope of getting there before all the valuable
ground has been staked. It is a little
late in the season for that country, as
ut this time of tho year the thermometer frequently registsrs below the
freezing point at noon and violent
snow storms are liable lo suhjeot the
tenderfoot to hardships. Seasoned
prospectors, who are used to an outdoor life and who understand how to
care of themselves under all circumstances, shouid not regard the trip as
one of much oon sequence.
The new find is locatod in the t)ne��-
nel division at a point directly north
of Ashoroft and about 120 miles
distant fiom there. The Horsefly
river and the north fork of the river,
on which tbe placers are located, ate
situated south of Horsefly lake The
lloiselly rivor rises in the Selkirk
mountains nnd runs southwest and
then noithwest and empties into
Quenel lake, the latte- lake is
drained by the Quesnel river, whioh
is one of thu confluents of tbe Columbia rivor.
lloiselly river rnns through a mountainous countiy and the lack of trails
and the difficulty oi reaching it has
prevented its barks from being
thoroughly prospected although it has
long been held by the old Cariboo
miners that there was a rich gold belt
aomewhere along its banks. It was
only a short time since that the party
of six who were so fortunate as to
make tbe discovery began prospecting
and they have been rewarded by
what is probably the most Important
plncer discovery made in a decade in
Hritish Columbia outsido of those in
tbe Atlin district.
Tbe season is too far advanced to do
much this year in the way of prospecting for locations, but those who
have staked claims may be able to
get out pay dirt during the winter,
after the practice in vogue in the
Klondike, provided thoy can get in
supplies to last thorn through the
long, cold winter of that section.
Tho placers of Biltisb Columibn
have been proliflo in yielding gold
nnd np to tbe end of 1000 their gross
output was $02,584,443. It is possible
that Empire creek may be like some
of the rich creeks ot Caiiboo, Cassiar
or ol Wild Ilorso in East Kootenay
and that tbey may yield many millions of the yellow metal and be the
moans of taising many an houest
miner fiom poverty to affluence.
The Journal of Ai-hcroft, with the
characteristic enterprise of tho prcse,
bas sent a representative to the diggings In order to get at the facts as to
the richness and extent of the new
rind and In a short time the public
will be better informed as to them.
Nelson intends to send a contingent
nnd the outlook is that the Horsefly
country will be thoroughly prospected if the season is not too far
advanced. Next spring there should
ho an influx into that section of considerable magnitude, as thero is nothing so alluring to those who engage
in mining as rich placer ground.

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
There is nothing like Asthmalene. It
bring? instant relief, even in tbe worst
cases.   It cures when all else fails.
Thc Rev. O P. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,
111 .says: "Yourtrinl bottle of Asthma-
lr-ne received iu good condition. I cannot
tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ton
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you had over-spoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial acted like a
charm.    Send me a full size bottle.

Gentlemen i Your Asthmalene is an
excellent remedy for Asthma and Hay
Fever, and its composition alleviates all
troubles whioh combine with Asthma.
Its success is astonishing and wonderful.
After having it caretully analyzed, w�� can state that Asthmalene contains
no opium, morphine, chloioform or ether.    Very truly yonrs,
Thomas A. Edison, the noted inven
tor, is pushing work on the faotory In
which he purposes making his newly
invented storage battery, but It will
be several months before the batteries
will be pliiced ou the market. Mr,
Edison feels abslutely .-crtain that his
invention will prove a success. It is
claimed for thu storage baitery that
all of the cartage in cities will be
done In elect n* wagons, bocause they
can do it cheaper than it can be
by homes. There will, it i�� claimed,
be no need for trolley wires and
poles as each car will carry its own
storage battery which will be charged
at the central power houses. The in
ven'ion, if it does anywhere near
what is promised for it, will revolu
tionize nearly all forms ot haulage.

Oentlemen . 1 write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been nfflicted with spasmodic asthma for th*** past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon yonr
windows on 13(1 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottlo of Antlinyilcne.
My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappear!d
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend thc medicine to all who are afflicted with tbis distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D. PIIELPh, M. D.

and tbo prompt isolation of those
found to be infected, the disease occasionally finds its way into Canadian
cities. There was an exuiuplo of this
a fow days sinco in Nelson. The re-
salt Is that Dr. Mnntiznmbert, tbe
Dominion Officer ol Public Health,
vigorously favois genernl vaccination
throughout Canada. This is a precaution whioh nil should take, as it has
boen demonstrated that it in the best
protection against a dread disease.
Kefore vaccination was known smallpox was one of the scouigts of the
world and during its epidemics many
thousands wore carried off, but now
vaccination and a better understanding of the treatment of the disease
have reduced thc inortality to
small proportions. Among those who
contract the disease, the proportion
of vaccinated who die is much
smaller than of those who have not
heen so proteotud. Evoiybodv should,
theieforo, lollow the recommendation
cf Dr. Montizambert and be
The Toronto Globe says: "Reports
are in circulation thnt a British
Colombian is to bo taken into tho
ministry. These repot la arc signs r,f
the growing political power of the
west.     Tho application  of the people
of the Territories for enlarged self*
government is another indication of
the same kind."
Typhoid fever in war causes more
losses than bullets, and the disease Is
principally due to the lack of pure
drinking water. Dr. Leigh Oanney,
an Engl lab physician, proposes a
Royal water corps, whose sole duty it
would bo to guard troops against suoh
water-borne diseases as typhoid,
dysontry and cholera, and who would
be held accountable for thc occurrence
of such diseases. The plan has heen
widely discussed and is meeting with
much favor as many of medical and
military journals consider it fonslblo.

would still find purchasers as soon as

The young man Durkee.who died at
Kaslo as the result of the Lardo railway accident, waB buried at that uity
The   lako lias remained at the same
level for more than a week now with
out rising or falling half an inch.    Il
is still eight inches  above   last   winter's low water mark.
The steamor Nelson made a special
trip to Lardo on Monday night for
the purpose of taking up 36 more
laborers for the now railway who had
arrived from Manitoba that afternoon
and wore transferred at Procter from
the Moyie.
The Chiuamen of the city have de
cided to contest by-law No. 100, lelat-
ing to the carrying of slops in open
huckots aud have engaged counsel to
conduct their oase. The hearing will
take place this morning in the police
court befoie Magistrate Crease.
Tne swing section of the Robson
bridge has been placed in position
but there are yet two spans of the
rest of the bridge to be erected.
Owing to tho non-arrival of some iron
work that was needed the work on
the bridge was delayed a week in the
early part of October.
Work will be comraeced on the laying of the new water main on Vernon
street between Waid and Stanley
streets today. Tho pipe will be a six-
inch one and will make an important
link in the present system of lire
protection. Nelson at present uses
mere water in proportion to its popu
laticin than any town in Canada.
lhe snail bnys of Nelson have
started on a new and peculiar game
called "knobbies " It is played with
two short sections of rubber hose con
nection by a band of leather about
six inches long foi a uiissile,and light
sticks witha slight bend at oue end
for handling It. The rules of the
fame are similar to those of lacrosse.
At the coast, whence it was brought
to Nelson,there are clubs and associations for playing it, bnt in Nelson tho
hoys have not yet organized, A match
is talked of hetween the public school
and St. Joseph's.
Rightly selected food will cure more
than hall the diseases. Try a scien
tide and healthy breakfast:���Fruit ol
some kind, preforably cooked ; a dish
of Orape-Nuts, with oroam ; two soft-
boiled eggs. Put two eggs in a tin
pint cup of boiling water, cover and
sit ofF for nine minutes. Whites
will then be the consistency of cream
and most easily digested. One slice
of bread with butter; cup of I'ostum
Cereal Food Coffee.
On that bicakfast yon can work like
a horse and be perfectly nourished
until noon. Your nervous troubles,
heart palpitation, stomach and bowel
troubles, kidney compaints and various other disorders will gradually
disappear and Urm solid healtb will
set in.
Why? You have probably been
livng on poorly sclented food, that is
food that does not contain the required elements the body needs. That
sort of food, and colTee, Is the direct
or indirect cause nf more than hall
the ills tho human body acquires.
Urapc-Nuts Is a perfectly cooked
food and both that and the Postum
Food Coffee contain Sue microscopic
particles of phosphate of potash obtained ln a natural way from the
grains of the field and by slcientilic
food experts Incorporated into food
nnd drink. That elemeni JDins with
the albumen in food to make gray
matter, which is the filling of the
brain cells and the nerve centers all
over the human body.
A man or woman thus fed is scientifically fod and rapidly grows in
vigor and vitality, and becomes capable of conducting successfully the
affairs of life. To produce a porfoci
body and a money making hiain, the
body must have the right kind of food
mid the expert food specialist knows
how to make it. That is (Jrape-Nnts

R. J. Steel, aeont for the townsite
of Ashnla, sold within the past two
days sixteen lot- in the townsite of

Miner. This reveals that The Miner
is a valuable advertising medium.
At the police court yesterday morning there were but two cases to come
before the magistrate. One of these
was a tramp charged with vagrancy.
He was given two hours to get ont of
town which opportunity he took.
The otber case was that of two Chinamen who had been violating one of
the city by laws. They wero remand
ed until this morning.
Provincial   Constable  Forrester,   of
Robson, came to Nelson   yesterday for
the purpose of   interviewing   the   an
thorities     in   regard   to   an    Indian
woman who is seriously ill in a shack
at Castlegar.    The woman's husband
llaptiste   Christian,   is   away in   the
hills hunting and will not be back for
some time, and   the only persons with
the woman are several   small children
and   an   old   woman in   her   dotage
The Indian agent at   Fort   Steele has
been   communicated   with   and it   is
probable a doctor from Nelson will be
sent to attend to her case.
Yesterday morning while the work
men on the wharf were engaged in
replanking that structure, they
looseued tho inner supports of tbe
derrick used by the postofiice contractors in transfer] ing the marble from
the barges to the wagons on the
wharf. Tho derrick stood for some
time all right, but a heavy team passing, caused the derrick to topple ovur
into the lake tearing out the ouiei
supports and smashing the stays.
The main timbers were uot much
damaged, but it will he extremely
difficult tu put it in place again as
will have to he taken apart before it
can be removed from its present resting place.
An indication of tbe near approach
of the end of work on construction of
the Lardo-Duncan railway is the fact
that a number of horses which were
taken up to work on grading will
be brought down this week. They
wero hired from John F. Lindbnrg
of Rossland, who sent up liis own
teamsters. II. L. Nicholson acting
for him went up yesterday to get the
horses and intends to bring them
down this week. What hastens this
step is that the Velvet mine, near the
boundary southwest of Rossand, intends to ship ore which has to be
hauled about five miles to the railway
track and Mr. f.indburg has the non-
tract for the worn. Mr. Nicholson is
accompanied by Itolicit Lowry, a
foreman in the Velvet who is going
on a holiday trip to Moyie.

Violent Deeds of Filipino Bandits and
Soldiers. 1
Washington, Oct. 22.���The records
In 20 court martial cases wherein the
charge was murder have been received
at the war department from the headquarters of the division of the Philip
pines. In tbe majority of the cases
the sentence of death by hanging
were imposed and approved. All of
them bore features of unusual ba
barity and cruelty, so marked as to
warrant spcoial mention. In one of
the latter five natives, members of an
armed band of outlaws entered the
house of a native named Ragado,
seized and bound hia son, h&nqed him
by a rope and tied his father and
mother by their elbows to a rafter
They then demanded money of the
captives and the forthcoming amount
not being deemed sufficient they
wrapped rags saturated with oil about
their feet and legs and set their
clothes afire. For two honrs the torture was continued, blows tram the
butts of rifles being rained on the
helpless captives meanwhile to add to
their sufferings. The young daughter
was struck down by a blow from a
bolo on her head. All five of the natives were sentenced to death. Two
American soldiers, Privates Chas. R
White and Thomas H. Mathlas, both
of Company "H," 4th infantry, had
been captured by the insurgents. They
finally passed under the charge of
Esteban San Jann, a colonel of the
insurgents, and the ranking officer in
the vicinity of Cavlte. He had them
bound to trees and Strang lea to death
with coide.

Special Features of the
Florence   Hot   Blast
Our New Idea Deflector Fire Pot greatly increases tke heating capacity of the stove, and in connection with the deflector ring forces thc
heat to the floor. The base is hot, the floor being warmer than w;th a
base burner.
The Hot Blast Attachment takes in the cold air through a duct at the
rear of the lire pot, the heated air being discharged in a circle at the top
of Are pot, ov^r fire, thus consuming all the gases and products of combustion. It can be operated in connection with the front draft door, or
independently, by a screw register in the rear of base, insuring complete
control of the stc.ve with nearly perfect combustion.
The large Hot Air Circulating Flue on the back takes the cold air from
the floor and ejects it .ntensely heated, through the top adding greatly
to the heating capacity.
Where the stove is operated according to directions we guarantee it to
consume all the gas contained in soft coal, thus deriving the benefit of
all the heat in the fuel consumed, causing a truly remarkable saving of
fuel over any other stove on the market. The stova will hold fire from
24 to 48 hours without attention.
