PROGRESS
OF REBELS
A PIONEER RETURNS.
'ienipeg, Nov. 32.���Members of
the Manitoba government refuse to
talk ��s to the action of the government following the finding of the
Imperial Privy Council declaring that
the province has power tD enforce prohibition. It is well known that members of the cabinet are divided in
opinion on thc prohibition question.
F. II. Phippen, who was counsel for
the local liquor dealers before the
Impcr'al Privy council, was interviewed in regard to the decision, tic
said: I have just received a cable
wliioh corroborates your infomiation
Hint tho act in uphold. It iB as fol-
luws. "The Manitoba Liquor judgment toilay decides the act valio. The
answer to question No. 1 is that the
case fal|s under No. 1(1; other question unanswered as serving no useful purpose."
Question Nn. 1 submitted by the
provincial caso to the court was: Hud
tho Legislative assembly of Manitoba
jurisdiction to enact the Liquor act,
ami i( not. in what particular respect
has it exceeded its power?
Tho section IB referred to in thc
cablegram is subsection 16 of section
Wot the H. N. A. act, wliioh authorizes the province to legislate in respect
to all mutters Of merely locnl or private nature in the province.
The effect of the judgment would
appear to be that thc judicial committee is of the opinion that prohibition
legislation as dealt with by the
Liquor act is a local matter and there-
lorn within the competence of the
legislature,
The court of King's Bench of
Manitoba took a different view; it
thought tlio act affected matters beyond the province, and was therefore,
bad ns interfering with trade and
commerce.
It is possible, said Mr. Phippen, in
conclusion, that on obtaining a copy
of tho judgment, the deoision may
appear in a different light, but the
nbovu explanation is as it would seem
tome from the cablogram?
"Then prohibition is practically an
accomplished fact, at least, when tbe
present licensee iuu out?" said the
reporter.
"That depends on the government's
aotion.'"
Will   the liquor dealers take  any
steps?"
"I cannot tell."
J. A. M, Aikums, who framed the
Honor act said i The decision ren-
'���ered will, i i,HV0 no _0ubt, not only
to important in respect to tiansaotiou
111 liquor, in defining the different
jurisdictions of thc Dominion and
provincial legislatures, but will no
''oiilit he important In fixing the
limits of these jurisdictions in respects to other matters too. I was
"'" at all surprised at opinions ditter-
H* as to the validity of the act, in
v Ow nf the fact that previous deei-
M'uis of the PHvy council were not
"'ear as to the right of the province
t0 leglsalte In respoct to wholesale
ransaetlons in liquor. It was difllcult

Provincial jurisdiction and after

Mr. Lehman Who Almost Bought the
Hall Mines in 1881) Visits Nelson.
Mr. N. Lehman, a prominent capitalist and mining man of St. Paul,
Minn., is a guest at tbe Phair. Mr.
Lehman is on his way home after a
trip through the .Slocan inspecting
some properties in which he contemplates taking an interest.
Hia Inst visit to Nelson was in 18H0,
and be told many interesting storus
of what the city looked like in those
days. He came in from Ainsworth,
which in the latter '8()'s was quite a
town, having five saloons, several
stores, and other places of business.
In Nelson, which was reached by the
steamer Galena, Mr. Lehman said he
got oil at a most abominable landing
ploee. There wero then four buildings
in town. Two of these were saloons.
Another wus a jail, and thu third
was divided in two, thc rear pert ion
being occupied by Judge Sprout,while
in the front was a rough stock of
goods. The chief occupation of tho
eighteen or twenty inhabitants, Mr.
Lehman stated, was playing poker
aril trying to sell town lots to any
chanee visitor.
Mr. Lehman visited tbo Silver King
claim,   and   was much improssedwith
it, and entered into a   deal   with  the
Hall brothers, who owned   it, to purchase.     He and one of the Halls went
over to Ainsworth to   close   tho   deal,
hut the Halls had sold   a   number  of
small interests to merchants in RhvcI-
stoke and other places  and on finding
that the title was extremely   involved
Mr.   Lehman decided  not, to purchase
and called the   deal   off.     On   going
hack to   St.   Paul   he   reported   that
there were a number  of good looking
properties In Ihe oountry, but that  as
he did not  think   thore   would   be  a
railway in to this division for a long
time   to   come  he did  not think it  a
good place to invest in.   He was back
again twice that same  year, to  make
further  examination   of   some  of the
properties   that  are  now well known
minus, but thc question of transportation   thee   seemed to   bo such un un -
solvable one that he finally concluded
that on   none ofjjthe prospects that  he
had   examined were the showing rioh
enough   to   warrant    investing.     In
Nelson he was approached to buy lots,
but, as he expressed   It,   he   did  not
consider    thc    whole   townsite   was
worth a thousand dollars,   saloons included, so he did not  purchase     Mr.
Lehman,   now,   however, is a  strong
believer in the country, and said that
he   thought   within   twelve    months
many of the properties in   the  Sioean
would surprise even thc  res! dents  hy
their shipping capacity.     He thought
the development  of   West  Kootenay
had   been   marvellous,   and with  the
splendid shipping facilities  that   had
been created within the last few yearB
would   soon  bring thc district to thc
front   as one  of   the best mining sections ln tho world.     In   the   Slocan,
Mr. Lehman Baid. he thought that tha
reason It had  not  progressed so much
of   late   was   that it was  expensive
work   developing  a   property   there.
There was plonty of good ore, and thu
holderB of claims, knowing such to be
thc case tried to develop   the   properties utterly beyond their capacity.   In
t*his   way   they were soon heavily involved  generally   ending    with    the
property   being  so  tied  up that  the
capitalist would   not care to touch it,
bnt   these   were dilllcu Ities that time
would solve,   and with the coming  of
capital into the country he thought an
astonishingly largo  number   of   good
niincB would be developed.

(SPECIAL TO TUB MINER.)
Grand Forks,Nov. 21.���The enlarge,
ment of the Granby smelter plant is
noaring completion. Two additional
furnaces with a joint capacity of 050
tons daily are being installed. Tbe
new converter plant will have a
capacity of from ISO to 200 tons of
matte daily. As the existing smelter
plant has recently been beating its
early records tbeie is every reason to
believe that the total smelting capacity will soon exceed 1.400 tons daily.
Thus far the Mother Lode smelter is
tbe only reduction works that has
entered into a contract to ship its
inatto here for treatment but the
example, thus set promises to be followed by all the other smelters in
the Kootenays. The converter here
will enable them to convert tbeir
present product into its motalic
values, and accomplish as well a great
saving in the volume of metal shipped
to the eastern refineries.
The power plant has been increased
by a 250-horso-powcr horizontal turbine water wheel and a 250-horse-
power electric generator directly connected witb the water wheel, making
<i total of 3!>0-horse-power developed
for the use of the Btuelter. This is
exclusive of the 250-horse-power
devolope.d for the city of Grand Forks,
the total power thus developed on tbe
Kettle river being 1,100-horse-power.
There has also been added an additional triple power pump, which
will supply another 750,000 gallons of
water daily for granulating the slag
and for the water jackets.
The oapacity of the blower room
has been increased by another No. 3
Connorsvllle blower and 20 feet has
been added to the dust due. Several
motors are being added for the purpose
of running the new plant. The two
new water-jacket copper matting
furnaoes will be 44x100 inches. The
new No. 5 gyratory crusher will be
capable of crushing 4,000 tons dally to
a size not exceeding four inches.
The converter building is a steel
fire-proof structure 100x08 feet, Its
height in the main portion being 5
feet The contract for its construction
was executed by the Hamilton Bridge
Works, Hamilton, Ont. Tbls building will contain two stands of converters of the horizontal barrel type.
The shells will be 72 inches in diameter by 100 Inches ln length. Eaoh
stand will have three extra shells.
This building contains a 40-ton electric crane for handling the shells and
matte. In another portion of thc
building it IB a 20-tcn reverberatory
tilting furnaoe, In the same building therjj "ill also be the quartz
crushing plant and grinding pan for
mixing the converter linings. Under
each converters and will be three
mould Jearricrs and these will bo
operated back and forth by a hydraulic ram. The converters and the tilting furnace will also bo worked by
the same powor. Nearby the converter
bnilding 1b the engine room, in which
is the blowing engine fcr blowing
the converters; also an hydraulic
pump that will furnish the pressure
to operate the various machines iu the
converter building. The blowing
engine, will be *un by a belt from a
20-h. p. alternating motor. It is of
the power type, has an air cylinder
BOzBO inches and has n special unloading device attached, so that when the
prcssuio reaches a maximum of 12
pounds the valves are so arranged that
they remain open and no power i"
consumed while the converter is not
using air. This unloading device was
specinlly built for the Granby company and has ncei been uHcd on nny
low pressure blowing engine used for
converter purposes.
The converter building is on the
same level as the furnace room containing the four blast furnaces and
100 feet therefrom. The two buildings
will be connected by a 10-ton electric
craro. The matte from the furnaoes
is first caught in receivers,   whioh  in

The  small   electric  crane   takes   the
ladle  of  molten   matte   to the end of I
j the   converter   buildings   and    there

furnace   is slowly tilted until there is
enough for a charge.    The large crane
transfers this hot matter to the converter into which il is poured. Thc con-
verier is then turned   into  an upright
position and thc blast turned on.
The   pressu,e blast is 12-pounds per
square inob.    The blast is_maintained
until such   time as sufficient  slag has
formed.     Then the blast is turned off
and   the   slag   skimmed into a   large
ladle.    This ladle is then carried by a
crane and ibe slag is  poured hot   into
the tilting furnace      The converter is
then blown for   a short timo when the
matte   is   all   converted   into inetalic

carriages are now   brought into   posi
tion   hy   the   hydraulic   ram and the
copper is slowly   poured   out   of   the
converter into one   of   theso   moulds.
The  copper   is   moulded into bars or
cakes weighing   about   thirty   pounds
each.
The converter is now ready Inr another charge. It takes from two to
four hours to convert one charge into
nn tallie copper, the time depending
npon the grade of matte.
Tho main furnace room has been enlarged an additional 81x82 feet. The
sampling room has been increased
70x70 feet, and at its highest part has
a height of 05 feet. The triplex pump
in the power house was furnished by
the Stillwcll Biercc, company of Dayton, Ohio, and the Dayton Globe
Iron works supplied the 250-h. p.
water wheel. The furnaces and converters were manufactured by the
Gates Iron works, of Chicago. All
the contracts for the supply of motors
and electrical plant was executed by
the Wustinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Co., of Pittsburg.
The ore bins have been enlarged to
a capacity of 10,000 ton.
To the superintendent, A. I). W.
Hodge, who also planned the original
plant, belongs the credit of having
arranged the details of the enlargement. Many of his own original ideas
have been incorporated in tho machinery by tbe builders. Mr. Hodge,
who was the first to solve the problem
of the economical treatment of Boundary ores, has directed ail the details
of oonstructiou.
London, Nov. 22.���The most Important position in today's Spectator will
be occupied by a discussion of a pro-
iposal that Grant Britain should give
its formal adherence to the Mcmoo
donlrine.
The Spectator w'll say: If America
will maintain the Monroe doctrinu,
why should we not pledge ourselves
not lo infringe npou it. When wo
bad acknowledged this doctrine
America might propose it to the rest
of the powers for enforcement, If she
did, the powers cnuld hardly refuse.
If they adhered, their adhesion would
be of great use, not to America, but
to the case of peace, for it would
eliminate u great many notable causes
of war. If the Monroe doctrine became a part of the public law of the
civilized world tho risk of a war
breaking out witli regard to European
interference in ltrnzil or Spanish
America, now always a possibility,
would then pass away. Possibly no
other power but Great Britain would
at first he willing to recognize the
Monroe Doctrine as binding. Even
so, it would ha worth onr while to
pledge ourselves to respect it for wo
never meant to attack that doetiinu
and sooner or later our example .will
probably bo followed by other powers.
The Spectator will also approve tbe
Canal treaty and in another article on
Secretary Hay's foreign policy tho
paper will say: No country in the
world can bhow two greater or
worthier statesmen than Piesident

Mr.
Blakemore Reports Favorably on
S. V. C. C. "s Coal.
The Similnamcon Valley   Coal oompany,   limited,   received   VV.    lilnke-
more's   report  on their   Similkameen
valley coal areas, yesterday  morning.
The   assay   result)    taken   from   the
surface are as   follows:     45 per cent,
fixed carbon, 41   volatile   combustible
matter; 2 per cent. ash.    All the samples   aro   "comparatively   devoid    of
sulphur,"   the   report   says.      These
figures compare more   than   favorably
with those of the coal areas in four of
thc  coal   states  of the   Union,   viz:
Iowa,    Wyoming,   Utah   and Oregon.
The   report   advises   the   oompany to
prospect   their   ground thoroughly at
once  with a diamond  drill,  having a
capacity of  a   thousand   feet.     Altogether tho report is a  most  flattering
one, considering   tho amount of work
done on the property;  it describes the
location of the company's   lauds as  a
most   enviuulc   one an j gives   figures
showing handsome profits to the   company   with   the advent of transportation.    In conclusion,It says: "Having
made a thorough examination of your
property I have no hesitation   in   saying that you possess a  valuable es'ute
apart from tbe question   of   its   value
as a coal   mining   proposition.     Thc
surface   townsite    and   water   powor
which   you oontrol   must in the event
of a railway passing through this dis
trict   become     increasingly   valuable
and I consider that in nil respects this
portion of your property Is most favorably situated with regard to any other
similar proerty in thc district."

A POORUY INFORMED ENGINEER.
The Montreal Witness recently published an article on mining in British
Columbia, during which it alludes to
the disinclination of capital to invest
in tbis province in mining properties.
It quotes a Montreal mining
engineer, who declares that the chief
reason why more capital docs not invest in llritish Columbia mines is
simply because of the lack of development, and when the claim owners
appreciate the fact that a developed
mine can be sold, while a prospcot oannot, ana appreciating the fact, buckle
down to work, outside capital will
seek the province as a field for investment. The Province of Vancouver
reechoed the sentiment alleged to have
been given utterance to by thc Mon
treal mining engineer. The engineer
who is quotod by tlie two papers must
be the veriest tyro.
When a mine is developed in British
Columbia of a meritorious character
usually those who own it have no
desire to sell it. If it is one that will
yield good profits they know its value
and are loathe to part with it unless
they can obtain a big price for it .
If, then, Eastern Canada waits and
only invests in developed mines the
purchases made by its investors in
this province will be exceedingly
few. The milling engineer talks
glibly about "when o'.aim owners ap'
predate tho fact that developed mines
ean be sold they will buckle down to
work and develop them" which is
boBh,pure and simple, as no community
knows or appreciates tho value ot a
developed mine better than the miners
of this section. The history of nearly
all of the paying mines of tbe prov
lnoe is about the same. They are
staked by prospentors, who are
usually grubBtonked by someone who
may be just a little better off than
they are themselves, who are given
an Interest in whatever may be staked
during the season. When a prospec
tor is driven into town at the end of
a season's work he is usually as poor
as it is possible for a man to be. Hi
only assets arc his interests in the
claims whion he haB taken up. lt
costs from $50,000 to ��250,00() to develop a prospect into a mine. The
prospeotor has not that sum neither
has the man nor tbe set of mon who
grubstaked him. The prospector must
live during tbe winter nnd he is often
compelled to part with tbe interests
whioh he has acquired during the
summer that he may livo during the
wintor. Why does he not develop his
claim or claims? the Montreal mining
engineer would probably ask. If he
and his companion were to do this
what would it involve? Trails must
be cut to the claims, shelters tullt,
powder, tools and supplies packed.
Even when all this is cone how long
would It take two or even three men
to develop the average prospect into a
mine? If they devoted yeurs to the task
they oould hardly accomplish it. Ultimately, therefore, the prospect finds its
way into the hands of tome capitalist
or company and after the expenditure
of an amount, which varies acoording
to conditions, B mine is developnd.
This is why outside capital is needed
In British Columiba as well ns in any
other new mining district and why
prospectors and claim owners do not
develop their holdings, so that Montreal may come in and bny developed
mines.
One of the principal reasons why so
many companies iu Eastern Canada
were failures was dne to the fact that
the management is most lnstancacs
were devoid of mining know ledge.
They sent clerks, bookkeepers and
men of every known occupation out to
look after their affairs. The result
was that poor prospects were often
purchased and little or no skill was
shown in their development, and thu
outcome of such management wns always failure There lias never been a
paying mine developed in British
Columbia except by experienced mining men, and there probably never
will be, except by accident. Occasionally a man probaoly of the same
kind ��s  tbe  one quoted by the Mon
treal Witness would come here fresh
from the schoolroom and take charge
of a mine, and he was usually as
ignominous a failure as the clerk or
the bookkeeper, because of a lack of
practical mining experience.
We have always understood that we
could sell developed mines, and have
no trouble in that direction whatever,
even before tbe learned Montreal
mining enginaeor told us that Bueh
was the fact. What is wanted is men
with capital who have sufficient courage to tako hold of promising pios-
peots and by spending money upon
them develop them into mines. Tho
investor who wants a Bure thing in
mining usually has to wait a long
time for it. It is the man who takes
some chances in mining who wins thc
largest returns. He must use tbe
same care and forethought that he
would in any other line of business,
and if this Is done thc chances for
making a profit is greater in mining
than in any other form of enterprise
that can be embarked in.
The day, too, for asking high prices
for undeveloped prospects hns passed
away, unless they show unusual outward signs of inward merit. Hundreds of claims can be bonded lor a
sufficient period to demontrate their
woitb and all the owners ask in return is a modest sum or an interest
in the property so developed. Captial
can secure good properties on its own
terms, almost, and this should be an
inducement for it to come in and take
a hand in our mining affairs.
The districts hitherto opened have
not been of such a cbaraoter that the
properties in them could not he opened
by men of limited capital. The
copper-gold deposits of the Boundary
and Rossland require the investment
of large Bums to place on a paying
basis. While thc silver-lead deposits
do not require quite as heavy an expenditure, still it is necessary to invest sums which are beyond the reach
of men of moderate circumstances to
make them dividend payers. There
is a district, tho Lardeau,which is now
being opened up by transportation,
which has some ledges of very high
grade ore. whieh, owing to this fact
and to the further faot that the ledges
can be easily opened by means of tun ���
nels, that oan be developed into paying propositions by men of moderate
means, or by oombinations of men
eaoh having a little money. Outside
of these the capital for the development
of our mines must come from the outside. Judging by thc tone and spirit
of the press of Eastern Canada, whicb
section bas lost money in British
Columbia mines by reason of inexperience, but principally through stock
manipulations by consclousless individuals, we need not expect much
oapital from there for some time to
come. The industry, however, is
gaining ground each day and capital
oontinues to come in from Great
Britain and the United States. Thc
results, in time we believe, will
be such that Eastern Canada will
realize tho true worth of the mines of
this province and then there will be
renewed investments by the capi-
tialists of that section of the Dominion. They shonld, however, take
little stock in the utterances of such
poorly informed individuals as tbe
mining engineer quoted by tbo Montreal Witness.

TUltNKH IN LONDON.
The llritish Columbia Reivew of
November Oth has the following to
say editorially of the arrival of Hon.
J. H. Turner, the new agent for the
provlnoe in London:
The arrival of Hon. J. H. Turner In
London,    to   represent   the    proivnee
With which he has Dccn   so   long   and
prominently   conneoted,   provido    an
opportunity   for  the ubiquitous interviewer,    from     whom   he     hns     not
escaped.    Our own representative was
of course,   anxious to obtain   an   outline of Mr. Turner's   plans but these,
he was informed, would not he   fully
oompleted until he had settled   down.
The   II.   C.   government has shown   a
desire   to   give far more support to its
agency   In   London   now than at. any
tlmo   pri'lvonsly, and   vie   are glad to
he able to state that   the arrangement
of   exhibits   of   the   resources of   the
province will receive more careful attention   at   tae   hands   of the ngciit-
gcticral.      I'eiiodlcal   reports on   the
output   of   agricultural   and     fishery
produce, in addition to mineral slulis-
tics, will be supplied   and it is hoped
in   time   that monthly reports can be
furnished.     Mr.   Turner,   we gather,
has not yet decided on the locality   of
his ofllces, and Is   at   present   considering Ibe rival   claims of the City and
Trafalgar .Square, in point of convenience.    We trust that   he   will eventually   decide   on   the former   locality,
which, as we have frequently   pointed
out, is by far the most useful position
for such an olllee, especially when the
chief   assets of the province consist of
mineral deposits.     Our representative
further   enquired   of Mr. Turner concerning the rumored B. 0    loan,   and
he   was   informed that Mr.   I'rentloe,
the   new   minister of finance,   would
arrive in London   next month, In connection   with   thc   forthcoming loan.
The   total   amount  authorized Is ��l, ���
non nun.   but only   a   portion   of   this
will bo issued,"

There is nothing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in tbe worst
cases.   It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. 0. P. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,
111., says: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received iu good condition, I eannot
tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you had overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial noted like a
charm.    Send me a full size bottle.
itiv. Dr. Morris WeclMler,
Rabbi of thn Cong. Bnai Israel,

Dn. Tait Bnos. Mbdicinb Co.,
Gentlemen: Your Asthmalene is an
oxcellent remedy for Asthma and Hay
Fever, and its composition alleviates all
troubles which combine with Asthma,
Its success is astonishing and wonderful.
After having it carctully analyzed, we can state that Asthmalene oontains
no opium, morphine, chloroform or ether.    Very truly yours,
^ REV. DR. MORRIS WKOHSLER.
Avon Springs, N. Y, Feb. 1, 1901.
Dns. Tait Bkob. Medicine Co.
Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having teBted the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been affloted with spasmodic asthma for the past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill us well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 tli street, New York, I at onae ohtained a bottle of Astbmnlenn.
My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma ha6 disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend tho medicine to nil who are nilliotod with this distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D. PHELPS, M. D.
Dr. Tait Bnos, Mbdicinb Co, Feb. 5, 1901.
Gentlemen : I was troubled with Asthma for 22 years. I have tried numerous rem.flies, but tbey have all failed. I ran across yoar advertisement and
started with a trial bottle, I found relief at once. I have sinoe purchased your
full sizod bottle, audi am ever grateful. I have a family of four children, and
for six years wns unable to work. I am now in the best of health and am doing
business every day.   This testimony you can make such use of as you see flt.

FIXED THE MINISTER
And He Needed Looking After.
"In a minister's family in Los Angeles where I was visiting sometime
ago, the wife complained of serious
indigestion and dyspepsia. .She admitted that she used ceffee and said
she more than half believed that was
the trouble. I told her that I knew
it was the trouble, for I had gone
through with the experience myself
and had only been cured when 1 lett
on* coffee and took up Pontmn Food
Ooffee.
She said she had tried the Postum,
both for herself and her husband, but
they did not like it. With her permission, I made Postum next morning
myself, and Dolled it fully fifteen
miuutes after the real boiling of the
pot began. Then when It was served,
it was a rich, deep brown color nnd
had the I run flavor and fond vnliio that
every Postum maker knows, lt Is all
folly to talk about trying to malic
Postum with one or two minutes'
steeping.
V'ou oan't get soine'lilng good for
nothing. It must be boiled, boiled,
boiled, and to keep it from boiling
over, use sinilll lump of butter, perhaps twice the si/.e of a pea. That
morning the minister and his wife
liked Postum so well that thtiir who'c
lives weie changed on the question of
diet aud they abandoned coffee at
once and for all time.
Now after a hard day's work, they
are comforted, refreshed, and rested
by a cup of well-made I'ostum for
upper. They are both enthusiastic
In Its praise. Thc wife 1ms entirely
' recovered from her dyspepsia. I will
not go Into the details of my own
case, except to say that I waN a iles-
peiato sufferer with dyspepsia and
discovered by leaving off coffee that
coffee was the cause of It. I quickly
got well when I took up Postum Food
Coffee. I earnestly hope ninny more
coffee drinkers may got their eyes
open.'' Name and address can be

No ore came in on tbo Kaslo again
yesterday, the soft weather interfering with the shipping from the mines.
The Hercules brought in two barges
of limestone for tho smelter and the
Surprise a barge of lumber from Pilot

Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Parkinson
left this week for the coast to visit
friends for a couple of weeks before
leaving for Honolulu, where they
will spend tho winter. C. Uenedict,
who will accompany them to the
south, leaves on Monday.
The funeral of tho late George Carney, who was killed in an explosion
a few days ago, was held in Kaslo
Thursday afternoon. A large number
of citizens attended tbo funeral whioh
was conducted by the Kaslo oompany
of the Rocky Mountain Rangers.
Employees of the C. P. R. are wondering when the pay checks for
October will arrive. The checks are
supposed to leave the head offices ou
thc 15th of the month, but last month
it was the 28th before they arrived,
and tbis month will apparently be the
same.
The subject for discussion at the

At the opera house last night the
Auditorium Stock company delighted
a large audience with A Man of Mystery, which was also given Wednesday
night. Mibs Miguel, as thc heroine
was very taking and Lse Morris wbo
took the part of the absent minded
Doctor Leslie, is undoubtedly a first-
class comedian. Thc company is undoubtedly a very well balanced one,
and when they play their return date
here in February will be most welcome. This afternoon at tbe matinee
La Belle Matie will be repeated and
in tbe evening a lively four act comedy, A Nigh*. Off, will be presented.
If you have a fancy to try Upton's

ELECTRIC LIGHTING.
Power Company to He Asked to Continue Temporary Agrcemont.
Mayor Fletcher yesterday in discussing tho lighting question said that tbe
council had not decided what steps,
if any, w mid ho taken to improve the
lighting for the winter. He was
thinking of approaching the Power
compnny to obtain if possible a continuation of the arrangement under
which the city bas been woikiug up
to about a week ago, namely to continue supplying power up to the end
of the year, which was ns far as this
oouncil could go. He understood that
there woro some who were taking out
the electric light and URing gas for
the remainder of the   winter at least.
As an evidence of thc reasonableness of the bargain contained in thu
bylaw tne mayor referrod to a paragraph ln the Monetary Times of
October 18th, wherein it is stated that
West Toronto Junction had just con-
eluded an agreement witb the Hiimbor

BRAIN-FOOD NONSENSE.
Another ridiculous food fad has beon
branded by the moBt competent
authorities. They have dispelled the
silly notion that one kind of food is
needed for brain, another for muscles,
and still another for bones. A correct diet will not only nourish a particular part of the body, but it will
sustain every other patt. Yet, bow-
ever good your food may be, its nutriment is destroyed by indigestion or
dypepsia. You must prepare for their
ppearance or prevent their coming by
aking regular doses of (linen's August
Flower, the favorite medicine of the
healthy millions. A few doses aids
digestion, stimulates the liver to
healthy action, purifies the blood, and
makes you feel buoyant and vigorous.
