THE MID-
Merchants of Nelson Unanimously Decide
to Continue It During the Summer Months.
Those Who Opposed It Were in a Hopeless
Minority and Finally Yielded to
the Majority.
Twenty live to three
majority in fnvor of the Thursday afternoon holiday, which was  given by
the   retnil   merchants   of   Nelson   at
their   meeting   last   evening   in   the
board   of   trade rnums, and the   erst'
.while champion   of   the wurkingmen,

iwo horses bus fnllcn   between   them,
and is now   covered   with hoof prints
and     gore.     The     alleged      charges
against the manager of The   Miner in
deceiving   the   signers   of   tlie Thursday half   holiday   petition huve   heen
given the lie,as of all who   took   part
in tho discussion    ol the   q-iostion   at
last night's  meeting   not" a   syllable
was dropped to justly the   statement.
The merchants were practically unanimous in declaring that their business
had not suffered   in the least   by   the
changcand weie for personal reasons,
as well ns social, decidedly in favor of
i*.s continuance.  Every ineichnnt. present spake tin the  question, and   while
a few weie in favor of the holiday being held some other day,   others   were
'���   opposed to II personally, but agreed lo
_   be   governed   by   the   majority.    The
��� majoiitv spoke and voted ill   favor  of
the Thursday half holiday   being con-
itnueil and agreed to stand like honest
Wen to tlie   agreement they had  sign-
'ei.    Home who hail not  been asked to
sign the petition bad  been   compel led
to admit the   necessity   of   doing   so,
owing to the fact  that limy hail prnc-

... Thursday     uftcrnoon,   nnd   did    not
i therefore   remain   open the following
���Thursday.
J. II. Wallace, of Wallace & Miller,
"was called to tho chair, and T. J,
Si'aiilan was appointed secretary.
Early in the evening Mr. Iligot,
maiiiigei'of the Hudson's liny Co., roEe
and announced thnt his firm would
observe the Thursday half holiday,
provided the mujority of the stores
did the sume.
A. McNeill, of McNeill Uros., expressed the opinion Hint when they
signed the petition they had pledged
themselves to observe the holiday.
E. C. Traves said the scheme wus n
good one. und although not asked to
sign the agreement, and had not done
BO 011 Ihe lirst occasion, he had been
practically compelled to do so on tl'c
second one, because, while his trade
was about doubled on Thursday morning, ho had not done "two bits"
worth of business on the afternoon
and in fuluic he intended In close.
s Mr. Wilson said that the way business was he thought they could get
along very well with the half holiday,
W. E.Teetzel thought the moighnnts
would be doing themselves an Injury
and Injustice by closing and the town
would suffer, that outsiders coming
In weie prevented from doing business
and the town could not all'oid to lose
any of trade, and made a motion that
the Thursday half holiday be discontinued.
-v A. Ferland seconded the motiou,
and suid thut owing to the different
Condition of tilings in Nelson to what
prevail in other towns they could not
afford to lose the opportunity of trading with outsiders nnd travellers who
came into the city by the trains and
boats every dny who would not be
tied to trade in Nelson if they came
and found everything locked up, He
���poke of the Lardo work now going on
and spoke as though he hud reason
for knowing thnt they would only do
business with Nelson on Thursday uf-
ternoon. ,
Mr. Kerr, of Kerr & Co., moved,
seconded by ,1. E. Weir, an amendment that the merchants of Nelson
Stand bv the written agreement they
had entered into. The latter gentleman said h. believui

enjoying
they could afford to have eight days
holiday in the summer season, and
did not believe any business man
would be any the poorer by the arrangement. He could not see how
any man could lose. Some thought
the stores ought not to be closed at
all, not even on Sundays,but they had
found by living up to the old agreement of closing at 7 o'clock, they hud
educated the people to do their business before that hour, until it had become practically useless to open after
thut hour,
.1. 3, Dover manifested a spirit of
opposition to the scheme, nnd in u
good nntnrcd wuy raised u few objections, but finally agreed to abide
by the decision of the majority.
II. Ityeis wns not opposed to a half
holiday, but objected to it being held
on Tbiiisdny afternoon, ticcanse it
broke into tlin middle of the week's
business, anil at that lime of the week
lie invariably found Himself filled up
With orders, nnd expressed his determination to look ufter his business ut
nil cost.
Mm tin O'Reilly expressed bimslef as
fnvornblo to the half holiday.
P. I.aniont, of Hie Canada Drug at
Hook Co., said lie would like to have
a half holiday, lint appreciated Ihe
hardships it would woik on certain
branches of trade; but if it was the
unanimous wish of the meeting to
continue the holiday he would stay
with the agreement.
C. Morrison had personnlly no objection, but agreed with a previous
speaker that it had the effect cf
breaking into tlie week's business,
but wished to look at it lrom Hie
standpoint whereby it would be for
the good of all, and wanted to see
them enjoy tbe benefits.
.1. A. McDonald said it was impossible to close his ice cream business on
Thursday afternoon, but agreed to
close the fruit department if there wns
any kick.
T. .1. Ncunlnn, speaking on behalf
of the grocers who had met the previous week, said they were unanimously agreed to continue the agreement,
and clnimcd Hint ns they (the grocers) would (ind it mme difficult to
close thnn dry goods men nnd clothiers, etc., he did [not see why tbey
could not nil do so. He claimed that
although those opposed to the movement had two weeks to watch the
effect of the closing not one of them
had ndiinvccd nn argument agninst It,
nnd hud produced no evidence that the
arrangement would not work. Referring to the 7 o'clock..arrangement
they hud entered Into some time ngo,
although it was vigorously opposed nt
the time, it hnd proved to be such a
SUOCCSS thut although during Christmas week thoy had continued open
after 7 o'clock they had not doue
enough extra business to pay for their
extra expenses.
Mr. Kerr of Kerr & Co., wns in favor of the half holdiay nnd did not
sec that It hnd injiued their business
in the least, us they mnde up well on
Eritlny what thoy had dropped behind
on Thursday, and claimed that there
was not enought business coining In
on the boats on Thursday afternoon to
materially affeot trade,
T. II. llrown wns in fnvor of tbe
half holiday,although bo thought July
and August were enough.
Mr. Kerr hero mentioned Hint be
wns the lirst to whom the petition
wns presented nnd hnd suggested to
Mr. Beaton that May should not havo
been included in the arrangement, but
agreed to it if the others did, and ns
he had been Informed by Mr. llcaton
that not one of tlie signers liud raised
any   objected   lie hud   not   raised the
Mr, MoCurdy, of the Nelson Hardware Co., wus in favor of the holiday
nnd thought it wns a good thing.
Mr. liiackmaii did not tliink it
would do any harm to the town, and
advocated standing by the agreement.
.Ins. Lawrence, though not present,
sent word that he was in favor of the
agreement being lived up to, but was
unable to attend.
A. D. Emory could not see any objection, and was quite In favor.
Mr. Lester said the arrangement naturally hit the man who wns newest
in the Held ns hnrd ns unyone, and if
the half holiday was going to benefit
nnyone lie wns willing for them to
have it. He admitted that during the
two days they hud closed that it did
not hurt his business, us he hnd done
as much business in the morning as
he hud usually done all day. He
claimed that the movement showed a
spirit of advancement, and claimed
that the present age demanded morn
relaxation than that of cur forefathers, as we were living nt a faster
rate.
J, 0. Putennnde nnd ,1. .1. Walker
each spoke in favor of abiding by
their agreement, and the chairman,
before putting the motion to tlie mee'-
ing, said he had been in business for
thirty years, and thought thut twelve
hours per day all the year round behind the counter was a pretty hard
life, and that by so doing n man did
not do himself justice, nnd there wuh
no question about tlie physical benefit of it. He said tlie bulk of their
trade was done with the working
men, who.'as union men, demanding
nnd receiving shorter hours themselves, would do all in their power to
assist them iu the observance of the
half holiday.
The amendment in fnvor of continuing tlie half holiday was put, when
25 votes wero counted by the chairman as in favor of it. Messrs. Ferland,
Tcet.pl and O'Neill oeing the only
ones voting against it. On a motion
to make it unanimous, only one remained seated, and be ultimately
arose, but whether in support of the
motion or to leave the hull is not
quite clear, ns the meeting then broke
up.
The Miner lias been deluged witli
thanks and congratulations fur its advocacy of the movement end nt a late
hour last evening a large deputation
of merchants and clerks waited upon
The Miner staff to manifest their np-
preciuton of the success of the meeting. When the lnrgu firms of Toion-
to nnd other centers of industry enn
udopt a measure of this kind as nn ull
the yeui round arrangement without
loss, surely tbe Nelson merchants can
ufford to give theii clerks twelve hnlf
duys a year in the summer inontliB
whereby they can enjoy with their
more favored brethren some of the
blessings of life, and The Miner
quaffs n bumper to thc success of the

Ottawa, May 14.���The Manitoba

1(17 to 5. The live'voling against are
Richardson, llourassa, Puttee, Charlton and Wallace.
In   the   liouse   today   Sir   Richard

asking power to increase   the  subsidy
for a steamship   line from Canada   to
France   from 850,000 to   $100,0(10.    He
stated that a contract had been entered
into  with   the   Frnnco-Canadian   Co.
which hud   assigned   to uriotlierc.ro-
puny of 'llanndian capitalists, whereby
a service was to be arranged  which it

the trade between Canada and France.
Tonight   Monk,   of .Incques  Cartier

Captain   lieinier's   polar   expdeition.
He called attention   to the ntlvnntnge.s
of the captain's   plans and urged   t.^e

London. May 11.���The Marquis of
Salisbury, speaking last night at the
banquet of the Non-Conformist Unionist association, said:
'���It is u snd retrospect when we
think of the number of young lives
that have been quenched, tbo splendid
hopes cut short and the amount of
bloodshed in the war iu South Africa.
It is a grievous retrospect. Yet
from it nny suggestion of wrong on
tbe part of the empire is absolutely
absent. Indeed, there are circumstances which can make every lover
of his country look back with exultation and gratitude upon the two
years just passed.
"These circumstances have been
aide to show that the spirit of our
ojuntrymen has burned as brightly as
at any other period io our history.
"When I was ut the foreign ollice I
used to henr nol infrequently tbat our
time hud passed; that our star had
set, that we were living on tlie valor
of those who had gone before. The
war in South Africa has shown the
.strength of England, which was never more conclusively shown. There
is no power in the world but knows
that if it defied tlie might ot England
it would defy onu of the most formidable enemies it could encounter,"
Subsequently the premier suid: "If
home rule hnd passed in 1803, what
would thc English position with a
hostile Irish government in Dublin
have been today? What would bur
position have been if we not only had
to meet the Transvaal aud the Orange
Free .State, but also an equally hostile Ireland by our side'.1 We know
from our experience the danger of letting Ireland have a measure of independence. We know now that if ne

HARMONIOUS DISCORD���
The Miner owes the Rocky Miniii-
tain Rangers' band nn apology for
unintentionally mixing them up with
the old smelter bund, whose identity
is so ditlicult to determine. The Rocky
Mountain Rangers were represented
in yesterday's report of the meeting
of the clly council ns negotiating
with Ihe city council for the sale of
their instruments, whereas practically
all the members of tho Rangers' Inn d
own the instruments they use; but Icing desirous of strengthening their
forces, approached the city council,
reqncstiug, nt the suggestion of citizens of Nelson, that they procure for
the it. M. It. band, the Instruments
now in possession of the defunct smelter band, which were procured by th1'
voluntary subscription of Nelson citl-

Another beautiful day greeted the
members of thc conference yesterday
morning. A prayer and praise service
was conducted by Rev. S. .1. Green,
Rev. Dr. Carman,general superintendent, in the chair. Rev. W. II. Barraclough, II. A., president of Hie conference, Rev, Dr. Whittington, ex-president, and Rev. John Robson, II. A.,
the confeienco   officers,   occupied   the
chair.
A general communication wns received from the book room showing
that the affairs of tlie book concern
arc being managed with businesslike
ability.
The temperance committee presented its report through Kev. .1. Calvert.
This report was full of interest.
The government control of the liquor
tratlic was advocated. In speaking on
this question the Rev. E.S, Rowc said
that it ought to be undeistood that
we have in no wuy abandoned the
hope of its entire prohibition, yet be
would vote for government control
as being a step in thu direction of our
ultimate aim.
Rev. E. K. Scott, of Vancouver,
slated that government control would
in no way eradicate the existing evil
and by voting for government control
lie would thus be a sharer in making
drunkards, which lie would never do.
Rev. A. E. Ilrecn advocated the
adoption of this item, ns it would be u
slop in the right direction, nnd would
bring us u stage lienrcr prohibition.
Rev. E. S. Rowc again addressed the
c inference on the subject and stated
that we would not be any more responsible for the evils, if tho government controlled the tratlic, as young
men would no longer be taught to
drink. If thc government took over
thc control of thu traffic Hie evils of
treating would be eliminated and that
class now in business as ealoonkeepcis
would be extinct, and would eilhii
enter somo other business or go elsewhere. Local option would thus be
adopted and the municipality would
decide the question cither for or
against the sule. Yet he wonld not
desire to lake this step ns n Quality,
lie would still seek to gain prohibition.
The general superintendent slated
thut the Methodist church, generally
speaking, wus a unit ou this point and
] we should put ourselves Oil record that
wc huve not ubnndaneil prohibition
and have a solid resolution on the
subject.
The conference was unanimously 111

Tbe temperance committee reported
as follows regarding the government
control of the liquor trullic:
"Thc conference re affirmed Its conviction that the only effective remedy
for the evils of the liquor trallic is tbe
total porhibitioii of the manufacture,
Importation and sale of alcoholic liquors ns a beverage, nnd thai the only
safe and coiisistenst course for Christian people is the practice of total abstinence.
"In reference to the memorial from
the Kootenay district asking the conference to consider the quest ion of the
government control of the liquor trallic. thc committee recommend that
the conference deliverance upon the
subject bu as follows:
"That in the opinion of this confluence if the government will assume
the ownership nnd control of the liquor (raffle under such an arrangement as will provide for local optitn
in municipalities and eliminate tbo
treating system, for requiring thut
nil liquors dispensed be in sealed
packages only, and not consumed upon the premises where sold, thnt circumstances would lie developed which

we as a church must, persistently
strive, "

ABOUT OUR
Clearing Out Sale
We
and
have a fe
will  sell
\v of those nice Parisian Hals  left,
them at  largely  reduced   prices.
It is elaimed of Mr. Dunsmuir that
lie is a business man. No one ever
pretended that he was a politician.
In fact be is always prompt to deny
any such soft impeachment. He took
powei so as to give the people a
"liusiness Government." He hail no
political ambitions. The good fortune of his esteemed father had placed
him beyond any sordid desire for
olliee. This being the ease.it is right
to examine his railway, policy from a
business standpoint and judge of its
object by what it is likely to accomplish. If it is such a policy as rea'.ly
will assist lailway construction, the
public are justified in thinking that
he intended it for that purpo.e. If it
will not have this effect, it may be
fairly argued that it was not intended to have such an effect, in
other words, that it is a political gold
brick.
Mr. Dunsmuir proposes to "assist"
railways by lending them an amount
not to exceed $4,000 a mile. He is go
ing to pay this amount when the railways are finished, and any man who
knows anything about the Province
will say that it will be at least three
years after the railways have been
begun before they will get a dollar of
his money. He also reserves the right
to give the companies Provincial
stoek,or bonds, instead of cash, aud
there is not a line in thc Loan Art authorizing him to band over this stock,
01 bonds, for less than their face value
and so the companies must take
them at par, if Mr.Dunsmuir elects to
give them these securities ins'.ead of
cash. The companies are to pay thc
Government two per cent, on this 84,-
000 for the first five yeais, and three
per cent, for ever after, which makes
this to all intents and purposes a three
per cent, loan,the brief period of lower interest being insignificant. The
present value of our inscribed stock is
92. What it will be three or four
years from now is purely guess work.
Does Mr. Dunsmuir know how much
money he could get advanced by any
bank or monetary institution on the
prospect of receiving from tbe Government 84,000 of inscribed stoek three
years from nowV He is a rich man,
and perhaps be will say how much lie
would advance on such security himself. If there wero any guarantee that
our stock would remain at Vi tot
three years, then, deducting brokers'
commissions,the Btock would be worth
now 90 por cent, of its par value, less
three years' Interest at the current
value of money. Ninety per cent, of
84,(10(1 is $:i,i'i()(l,and this is the outside
figure that could possibly be secured on
such stock if issued now. Hut it is
not to be issued for three years, or
until the railways are completed, and
so we must deduct from tbis three
years' inteiost, in order to find out
how much at the outside the banks
would advance on a contract to deliver
the stock under such conditions. Thll
brings the outside cash value of this
alleged assistance of 84,000 a mile,
payable in three years in Inscribed
stock, down to 82,053, The companies
receiving this arc to pay three per
cent, on 84,000. which is SII.'O a year,
which is over four per cent, upon
82,11.12, the cash value of the loan.
This loan Is secured by a firs', mortgage on tbe line. All other moneys
raised must be second mortgage securities. Now, what we would like
Mr. Dunsmuir, as a business man, to
say is whether in ills opinion any set
of capitalists In the world would
agree tu place B first mortgage on a
railway for 82,952, with interest at
four per cent. He must suiely know
that Ilis nil 'ged assistance to railways
is without the slightest value from a
financial point of view.
Hut more remains to be told, because 111 consideia'.lon of this extraordinary first mortgage the Government asks the companies to surrender
to it absolute control of all contracts
and freight rales. We put this question to hi in as a business man: Will
any railway company In the world
create a first mortgage on I'.h   line  of
Hudson's Bay Company.:
mile   with   interest payable
per   cent,   for   the   sake   of
81,000 a
at thice
receiving what is not worth more than
82,952 per mile, and surrender to the
lender of this latter amount control
of contracts and rates'.' As a business
man, Mr. Dunsmuir must answer,
No.     -
Ilanng placed a first mortgage on
the railways for 84,000 a mile in consideration of "assistance" not wortli
in cash more than $2,052, having assumed the absolute right to control
rates, and the supervision of eon-
tracts, Mr. Dunsmuir sends the companies out to finance thc. remainder of
the cost of the undertaking. Ilis "assistance" is equal to about one-tenth
the cost of the railways, which will
average at least 830,000 a mile, and so
there remain nine tenths to be financed otherwise. The Dominion will
not give a dollar without control of
rates, but the companies cannot give
this because they have already contracted it away. The nine-tenths must
be raised by stoek and bonds, As a
business man Mr. Dunsmuir must
know that thev could not raise a
single dollar in the money market on
Becond mortgage nonds. He ought to
knou that they could raise nothing
except at a ruinous discount which
would enormously increase thc capitalization of the roads, on first mortgage bonds for so large a sum, unless
the persons financing the proposition
had the letting of the contracts without Government interference, hut as
first mortgage bonds could not be issued under the contract with the Government prescribed by the Loan Act,
it iB only a waste of time lo talk
about them.
The conclusion from the foregoing
is that Mr. Dunsmuir has handed the
Province a gold biick. We may admit
that he did not intend to do so, al
though this involves the loss of his
reputation as a husiness man in politics. He may himself have heen
"buncoed" by interested parties, and
have handed out tlie brick to the public In perfect good faith. Ills colleagues made no attempt to defend tbe
financial features of the bill. Hut
why should tbey'.' Mr. Turner is to
retire to London with ten thousand
a year, and Mr. Eberts was careful
to avoid committing himself to the
linanienl Impossibilities involved in
the measure. Some people think that
Sl'ppeiy Joseph did tlie trick, but he
says uo. Hut still people think.���

mission would be a work of  supererogation.
We give up our editorial space this
morning to a leader from The Vancouver World. It is by many degrees
the ablest criticism of tbe Loan Bill
we have seen, and so much better
ban anything Tlie Miner could hope
lo do that it expects its readers to
consider themselves indebted to it
for thus presenting to llieni the leal
outcome of Mr. DnnBmuii's first and
labored effort at  railway   legislation.

Word cotnes from Washington,
on the authority of the President of
the International Association of Machinists, that 150,000 of the luetal
workers of the United Stales intend,
on tlie 20tll 111st. to strike for 11 nine,
hour day and no reduction of pay.
The notice is somewhat of the briefest, ns employers may not in all eases
be able to adjust themselves to the
changed-conditions 111 so short a time;
hut theie will be general agreement
that nine hours make fl sufficiently
long dav- The dispatch also contains
the Information that officers of the
Association have been negotiating
with employers for some time,looking
to a voluntary concession of this demand. Altogether this is an improvement on the methods adopted in forcing an eight-hour day on the mine
managers of British Columbia.
Tlie Oriental Commission is still
taking evidence. It would seem to be
the pnr.iose not lo stop until every
man on the Coast had been heard. Hy
the way, nothing lias been heard
lately of Hint Mining Commission
which had been promised by a member of the   Federal   Cabinet.   Mining

AUTHOR'S SECRET
Food Thai Hroughl Buck Kiiiivnnl llrnllli.
Newspaper writers havo a time of it
to get the right kind of food to nourish them. One of this profession
who writes for a Boston paper soys:
"From the first lirape-Nuts Food
worked like a charm. My stomach
had been failing to digest ordinary
food, and my nerves were completely
unstrung. 1 was about to give up
work while preparing a scries of articles for the press, but by II stioke
of good fortune they began to feed me
on drape-Nut*. My strength gradually returned, nerves became steadier
day by tlay, and I soon found 1 could
do more ollice work with greater ease
than ever before. There came to me
that feeling of buoyant Health nnd
satisfaction witli my work and satisfaction with myself. In short, 1 felt
that life was woith living, and that
I was girded up like a strong man
for a rice. In tny opinion, Grape-
Nuts is the one perfect article of food
invaluable alike for those thut are
sick nnd those that nre well. W. S.
(lidlcy, Author of "Hnpny-do-Lucky
Papers," "The Landlord's Story,"
etc.
It is a fact that (Irnpe-Nuls Food
dees supply trie brain and nerve
centers   with   tlie  elements necessary
to rebuild,   nourish  and   maintain.
That brings health, strength, bnppl
ness and tlie feeling of buoyancy Mr.
dldley speaks of.
