tho Pokin correspondent of the Times,
but it is more elevorly worded so ns
to save China's faoo. The correspondent continues. In consequence of
previous disclosures a jealous secrecy

ing n joint commission to which the
subject should bo referred. There was
much division of sentiment in regard

veutin in 1004. The house of deputies

Canada. There are but few of tbe native born whodonot know bow to Bhoot
and bow to aboot sti-aigbbt. Tbe
majority have Ducted more or lest in
their boyhood and manhood with both
i-ifle and shotgun and of some it may
truthfully be said tbat they have been
raised with guns in their hands. The
Canadian contingent., which went to
South Afirea, showed, if anything,
that tbey wore better shots than the
Iloers. Tne rifle eluba serve, how-
eter.to make still belter marksmen of
those who are fairly good and to great
ly improve those who are orly ordinary. By means of these clubs Canada will add largely to the number ol
ber sharpsbooleis, as number!! have
become interested through ibem who
otherwise would not have done so.
In case of an invasion Cana.'.a would
have a larger number of citizens wlu,
are good abotl than evjr before and
would be that much better fitted to

In considering the question of tin
electric power fur tbe city tbe mutter
of furnishing power for industrial
enterpriser!, which is important, has
been partially loBt bigbl of in the
prominence which is now being given
to tbe question of electric lights.
Nelson is already tbe wholesale centre
of tbe Kootenays and VHle and Mir
la time will nuturally make it a manufacturing point of importance. Al
ready a number of smalt manufacturing plants have been ostai.lished hen
aod these will grow and as the city
increases in size others will follow.
An important factor in tbe uoonomy
of the*-e enterprises is cheap power.
Electric power owing to Its cheapness is preferable to steam energy.
Th? tnun'clpality by augmenting the
present electrical plant or by the con-
���trnction of a larger plant would
place itself in a poiition to furnish
ancb power to any who might care lo
��������� It.    Vox instance, if il could do so
:-. probably could secure tbe contract
for furnishing the Nelson tramway
*ri:b power :'or propelling its cars. It
it old ie to the interest cf the city to
s*-il tbe pG<-_er to street car lines.
fa>-iorie��. foundries and all wbo
might need :t a .-lightly aboTe cost,
lor the reason tbat in so doing it
would be a-iding to tbe importance of
Nelson by fosteiing industries witbin
the corporate limit*. Naturally it
could afT-nd to furnish power cneaper
than could a private corporation, because the latter would certainly
endeavor to earn large dividends for
its shareholders. Tbe city should, as
-.���:.*_.-i*. can with advantage do so.
erect a plant at aorne point on tbe
Kootenay river so as to plaee itself
in a position lo furnish all tbe light*
and power that in the future may be
needed. Such a plant would oot only
yield a profit bnt would add more
than any otber venture in which the
city could embrak, to tbe lostenal
advantage of tbe eity.
There is an indirect benefit abont
cheap lights aod water which ia sometimes loat sight of. They make living
cheaper in a city wbich haa ancb
advantages, make it a more desirable
residence plaee, tend to increase tbe
population, and are favorable to tba
investment of capital because capital
is c��rtain of larger returns iD place
so favored. Nelson is in position to
folly control these utilites and should
not for a moment neglect the opportunity.

The Toronto World has thc following words in favor of publio owner*
shin: "Tbe principle of public ownership mny be ridiculed by corporations and light-weight politician*,
but facts speak for themselves. Thc
city which has bail most experience
in the direction of public ownership
is the strongest advocate of the principle. I- Glasgow tbey kown whereof
tbey speak. Tne city's recent installation of a great monicipal telephone plant more than offsets all tbe
aigumeots that are nrgd against
municipalization. Tbe municipalization of tbe telephone in Glasgow
follows aa a matter of course upon
the success of tbe principle of public

+**********************+
Vi. H. Blakemore, managing director of the company opening up the
great iron deposits at Kitchener arrived in Nelson yesterday, and leaves
tbis morning for Rossland. In conversation with a Miner reporter Mr.
Blakemore stated that the -working
force on the property had jnst been
douuleJ. It was the intention of his
company to push the work of develop-
jiij* the ledges wilh all possible vigor
while the piesent flue weather lasted
anil through er, much o( November ub
the snow would permit. When the
suuw seta in all work would be shut
down for the winter, but it is hoped
thai this will not occur before the
last Of November, The development
work so (nr dono on the property consists principally of diamond drilling
anil open outs, whicli have proved the
continuity of the veins   of   iron.     At
CRIMINAL ASSIZE.
present t
no shafts are being sunk ona
of
ledge of solid iron ore twenty feet in
width, whicli rune from 0.r> to 75 per
cent, in pure metallic iron. One shaft
is down 30 foet and and the other,
which wns started but a few days ago,
is down ten feet. A. H. Heylaud is
suiveying the whole property on
which application will be made for a
crown giant on the completion of ths
survey. On the mountain on which
this property , is located over forty
claims have been stiilied tbia season ou
all of which veins of iron bave beeu
found. There is a large number of
prospectms at work in the vicinity,
ami considerable work has beon dono
on several groups of claims near Kitoh-
cner,
Theie is a probability of a bond
lioing taken on the Harris and Fisher
groups on White Orouee momitiiu by
an American syndicate.
At Kitchener a number of town lots
have been sold and several new stores
put in.
Hugcno Croteau, secretary of the
Cascade Gold Mining oompany, was in
town yesterday from Rosslaud. The
Cascade company owns three mineral
claims located six miles from Hamill
creek station on tlie Columbia Sc
Western railway. Mr. Croteau reportt
that recent developments on the Cascade group havo given the most satisfactory results und reveal that it has
the makings of a mine of more than
ordinary importance. A five foot
ledge has been drifted for a distance
of 78 feet and at a depth of over 100
fee', hy means of a drift, tunnel and
shaft. I'nrefnl sampling made ut the
(Jinnby smelter shows that the ore
will average .26 to the ton. ptinci-
pa'ly in gold. An upraise is being
made from the tunnol to connect with
tbe shaft and when this is completed
there will ho sufficient oro in sight to
keep up the shipments all winter at
the rate of lid tons per dny. A wagon
Mad is being made and will be oom
pleted in ten days from Twenty-Mile
station. This road was built by the
government at a cost of $6,000. When
tho road is finished the shipments
"111 be commeuced and kept up continuously. Tho smelters ha/e offered
a vory low late, for reducing this
on on account of the laigo quantity
of limestone in it. The haul to the
smelter from the station will oost $1
pur ton and it is thought tho ore oan
be hauled from the mine to the railway for 82.50 a ton. There are a
number of othor claims near the (Jas-
oade of considerable piomise.
The llayonne ulaitn in the Ymir
district, upon which the strike of free
milling-gold ore was recently made,
lias boon sold for $40,000 to eastern
purtios. About six weeks ago a niuo-
foot ledge of free gold ore was encountered on the propeity and the
showing was so leraarkable that it
attracted niteution at once. Eut little
development work has been done on
thn property, and the prioe reported
t�� have been paid for the mine Is
about the highest paid for a claim in
that district for the amount of work
���tone, If the oro holds good in thc
nine foot vein, as It has been found i
nn Ilu* surface, the owners will have
a nch proposition. The government
haa granted |900 for tho building of a
"ORun road to the Fog Horn mino,
and a large force of men will be put
to work at onoe. As soon as the
(.rude is comploted a trial shipment of
ore will be sent out from the mine.

Uloomfield and   Itowlan   Acquitted
Robbing Charles Johnson.
The trial of Fied 5 loom fit Id and
Frank Buwlan for assault with robbery upon Uharles Johnson was continued yesterday at the assizes and
occupied the whole day. Crown witnesses wero called to show that the
prisoners knew that Johnson had
received somo money the night before,
that they had beeu seen on Lake
street ahout 1 o'clock on tHe morning
in question when they had nuked two
men if tbey had sion "the Swede,"
and the circumstance of llloomfield's
having a so't hut in the morning
whereas he had had a stilt' one the
night before.
The defence was an alibi. IOach of
the prisoners wont into the witness
hox and told where he had been the
night previous to the robbery and the
morning it. Uowlan said they had
had a drink at thc Bodega saloon
shoitly after 11 o'clock on the night
of the Saturday in question, lie and
Uloomfield had gone to several saloons
after that and separated about 1
o'clock in Sunday morning opposite
the Tramway company's office Bloom-
field said he was going home. lie
bad mot a man named Goldstein antl
walked about with him, tben about
3 o'clock he hnd met Uloomfield, who
said his father had found fault with
hiin for being out so be had not
stayed at home. Together they had
theu gone to the Sherbmoke hotel,
the manager and oook of whioh were
called to corroborate this.. It was
during tho time that Itowlan said he
bad been with Goldstein that a crown
witness said he had seen the two on
Lake street. The orucial point of tbe
evidence lay in whether this witness
were correct when he said ho bad seen
them cn that stioet.
The addresses of the deputy attorney-general and S. S. Taylor for the
prisoners and of the summing up the
judgo wore completed only a few
minutes before 6 oclock. The judge's
remaikB weie much commented upon
for their thoioughness, fairness and
lnginal arrangement.
It was not until 8.30 that the jury
agreed upon a verdict, the court in
the meantime having taken a ienesi.
They reti rned a verdict of not guilty
and the accused were discharged from
custody.

Special Features of the
Florence   Hot   Blast
Our New Idea Deflector Fire Pot greatly increases the heating capacity of the stove, and in connection with the deflector* ring forces the
heat to the floor. The base is hot, the floor being warmer than w;lh a
base burner.
The Hot Blast Attachment takes in the cold air through a duct at thc
rear of the fire pot, the heated air being discharged in a circle at the top
of fire pot, over 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 sttve with nearly perfect combustion.
The large Hot Air Circulating Klue on the back takes the cold air from
the floor and ejects it. .ntenscly heated, through the top ^adrMng 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.
