HACERS OF
HORSEFLY
The Discoverers Found Dig
glngs Which Gave $25
a Day.
Department of Mines Gives
Out Authentic Information.
The provincial department of mines
has   issued   a bulletin on   the  recent
gold discoveries on Horsefly river,Cariboo dis'rict, B. C.     JuEeph   William
llurr,   mining   recorder,   at Ashoruft,
gives de following   information   in a
letter  addressed   to the acting minister of mines.    The discovery.he slates,
was mnde by  two   prospectors,   Alexander Sim and James   Croddoek,   who
left   for   the Horsefly river on a prospering tour   about 1st of June,    1901.
From   Ward's   camp   to   tho Horsefly
river (just above narper's camp) they
prospected very carefully,going up all
of the   creeks, etc., emptying into the
main river.     On none  of the   stroams
emptying   into the   river on tbe north
side  did   they   find any gold,   but ou
the McKinley branch   and on Crooked
river, on the south side, they got good
prospect, though    not suoh as to warrant   them in stopping there.     They,
therefore,   continued   up   stream   till
they   reached   the   main fork,   which
they   followed   up,    bnt   they   found
nothing.   Returning they went up the
south   fork,    with   very   encouraging
results, so much so as to induce  them
to apply for a lease   of  one-half   mile
each   from   the   mouth   of   Campbell
creak, up-steam.   Then they   went on
up stream (getting good   prospects all
the  way   from   the   fork)   until they
reached   Eureka   creek,    where   they
each located a claim in company with
four  others (Campbell aud partners).
As  their   provisions   were     running
short they had   little time to prospect
the ground, but  hurriedly   improvised
a sluice box by felling a tree.splitting
it in two  and  hollowing   it out with
an   axe   about three inches   deep   by
eight wide.    Then they started shoveling  in   the   dirt and as a result from
the  actual   time shovelling  In,   they
cleared   at the   rato of $28 per day  to
the man in rough coarse gold of about
the size of flaxseed.     ln   addition   to
this  a   lot of gold must have escaped,
owing to   the   crude manner of working, as on   panning ont   tbe   tailings
afterwards they got several   colors   in
each  pan, and a lot of gold was visible in the indentures made by the axe
in hollowing  their rough   sluice bos,
in  which   they   had   only placed six
rifles.   After  prospering their claims
with  the   same result apparently  all
over  them,   they   felt   confident that
there   is   a   heavy   run   of   gold   all
through the property,   and believe tho
clnims above and below   them just   as
rich.
Home of the gold   recovered contains
uartz, and Fraser creek,   where some
respecting   has been   done, is full ot
iloat quartz,   indeed, from the indications   in   it   and other creeks in   thc
vicinity, there   may   bo   an   immense
body of  quartz   in the   mountains   in
which all these creeks take their rise,
and some good paying mines  may  be
discovered there   next   year,   as  inch
are evidently   the source   of supply to
the neighboring creeks  and the whole
Horsefly river.     The  country  around
Fraser  creek   has,   apparently  never
b>'i)n prnspeoted before as no sign of a
white man can be   found.      The   diggings   are   very   shallow on   Eureka,
Empire and   Fraser oreeks  not  being
much   more   than   two   or three  feet
deep,   heing  what   are   termed   poor
men's diggings.
Kuitber down the river the propositions are mostly of a hydraulic
character, and require capital to
develop them. From seven miles
above the forks to within a half a
mile ot Eureka creek, there is a bottom of from a quarter to a half-mile
wide, m whioh there is hardly any
'all to tho river, and from here down
to the forks there Is a fall of about
three feet to the hundred. Eureka
Meek is about eight to ten miles long.
Empire creek, whioh is a tributary of
Eureka creek, and empties into it
about 7.r)U yards from its junction with
'he south fork of Horsefly, is about
��ne and a half miles long,   and at the
the same length as Eureka, and,
although not prospec'o.d ns much as
the latter, is considered just as rich,
All these creeks take their rise from a
high range of mountains, about 6,000
feet high, wbich appears to be the
dividing line between Ihe Horsefly
and Clearwater riveis There is a
large tract of country lying to the
north, south and east of the new discovery that has never been prospected
yet, and has probably never even been
traversed hy either Indians or whites.
There are several good roads leading
into Harper's eamp on the Horsefly
river, which are accessible at any
time of tbe year. Parties travelling
up the Oariboo load, with pack horses
or on foot, will find the best and
shortest route by the Iu8-Mile road.
Another road branches off at the 111-
Mile post, and connects with the first
mentioned one a few mile9 out.
Another route,and the best for a team
to travel, is by way of the 115-Mile
post. From the 150-Mile post there is
also a very good wagon road to Harper's camp, and from there on to
Quesnel Forks, near which are situated the celebrated Cariboo Hydraulic
Oo.'s mines. Froai Harper's oamp
there are two ways of getting to the
new discovery; one is by a trail
which rnns parallel with the Horsefly
river to the forks; theico across the
north fork near the junction, where
there is a good ford, and on up thc
south fork to Eureka, lhe alternative
route is from llaprer's camp to the
landing on the lower end of Hurs liy
lako; thence up tbe lake to the uoper
landing, and from here across the pass
to the forks of Horsefly river.
The following tables of distances is
very nearly correct, as far as can be
ascertained, viz:
Ashcroft to narper's camp.���Ashcroft to 108-Mile house,93 miles; 108-
Mile house to Harpers' camp,48 miles.
Total, 141 miles.
Ashcroft to 150-Mile house, 135
miles; 150-Mllo houso to Harper's
camp, 35 miles.    Total, 170 miles.
Via 111-Mile house and 115-Mile
house poetically same as via 108-Mile
house.
From Harper's Camp to Eureka
creek. By trail np Horsefly river.���
Harper's camp to forks of Horsefly, 50
miles; forks to Eureka crecek, 13
miles.    Total 03 miles.

Gordon.
London, Deo.20.���The followng despatch has been reoeived lrom Lord
Kitchener, dated Johannesburg:
"Gen. Rundle reports that on the.
night of Deo. 24tb, Col. Firman's
camp at Secfontein, consisting of
three companies of yeomanry and two
guns was successfully rushed by a
strong commando under Dewet. It la
feared the casualties were heavy. Two
regiments of light_horse are pursuing
the Boers,''
London, Deo. 27.���The Boer resistance has always been very strong ln
that part of the Orange River colony
whioh was the scene of Gen. Dewet's
Christinas coup. A great quaranglc of
blockhouses is being built there, the
four points of whieh are Veerning,
Volksrust, Harrismith and Kronstartt.
At the ^southeast corner of this quadrangle is a long open space from
llethlhem to Lindley,wherethe square
of blookhouses is stili incomplete and
here Dewet made his attack. Col.
Firman's force probably amounted to
400 men and the disaster, epecially
the loss of the guns, the possession of
which may enable Dewet to successfully attack the block houses, created
a disturbing impression.
FIERCE STORMS RAGING.
Another Cocos Island Company
ed in San Francisco
San Francisco, Dec.26.���"The hoary
tale of Cocos island treasure bas
taken a new lease of life, and more
expeditions to the south seas in search
of the gold that is said to have been
buried there by pirates during the
past century are announced. The failure of many such expeditions and the
negative result of the ofllcial investigation conducted by the officers of tho
British cruiser Amphion a few years
ago do not seem to daunt in the least
the seekers for treasure. The Cocos
Island Improvement company lias
been formed by San Francisco and
Stockton business men and inoorpo
rated in Arizona witli a capital of
$1,000,000. Tbis company will fit out
an expedition here to go to Cocos
Island. The pnrpose of this party
will bo not alone to seek the buried
treasure, but to develop the material
resources of tho Island, which lies
some 300 miles off the ooast of Costa
Rica. Capt. Oeisslcr, of Stockton,
holds concessions from the Costa Rica
government, and it is proposed tn
develop the coffee plantations and
other industries to whioh the climate
and soil are said to be well suited.
Oapt. (leisslcr has been sent east by
the syndicate backing him to consult
with Philadelphia capitalists who are
also interested. This expedition lias
no connection with Ihe ono reported
to be fitting out at Victoria, H. U.
WHITES AND BLACKS FIGHT.
Birmingham, Alu., Doj. 20.���In a
general fight Detweon white men and
negroes at Childersburg yesterday
afternoon J. A. Whitcmau and his son
were killed and a white hoy and negro
wounded. With great difficulty a
general outbreak was prevented. The
negroes are now in jail at Talledega.
Utah and Northern Pacific States
Suffer Blinding Snow Storms.
Salt Lake, Utah, Dec.26.���Sleet and
snow storms accompanied by wind
which at some points almost reached
the velocity of a hurricane, have had
a very bad effect on train and telegraph service in the northwest. The
storm is still raging in the mountains.
All trains are more or less delayed
while thc telegraph service is completely prostrated. Spokane so far as
telegraph service is concerned is completely cut off from the outside world.
At Butte, Mont., the storm came from
the west out ol a clear sky, the snow,
driven by a fierce wind, being so
thick that it was impossile to see
across the Btreet. The storms apparently extend through to the coast.
Seattle, Tacoma and other points reported terrifio wind and mariue disasters are feared.
MANILA MONEY RATIO.
Confidence in Gen. Chaffee's Ability
to Bring About Peaoe.
Manila, Dec. 20.���It was publicly
announced today that the ratio for the
rirst quarter of 1902 will bo $2.10 Mexican silver to ono Amerioan gold dollar. Oen. Wright, the acting civil
governor says that, though unsatisfactory this is the only solution of tbe
matter the Philippine commisison
thought possible. He hope! for early
action hy congress on this subject.
Gen. Wright tLinks that the situation
in those parts of the Philippines
where military operations are being
carried on is daily improving. He
has the greatest confluence in Gen.
Charles's ability tu nnd the insurrection in thc islands and says perfect
harmony prevails between the civil
aud military authorities.
included the Marconi   system.     Thus '
tar,   however,  -the Navy   department
i.as not adopted   definitely any system |
but thc construction of the   new ships j
is   regarded   as   a   preliminary to the
adoption   of   a   system   whenever   its
practicability   is   established     fully.
The   British navy has already a number  ot   its   ships   equipped   with the
wireless   system   but   this is tbe first
move  on   the   part of  the   American
navy to make use of a wireless plan.
NC NEED OF
WAKING UP
RATE WAR PROBABLE.
Rival Steamship and Railway Companies Fighting For Lake Business.
Cleveland, Dec. 20.���The Leader tomorrow will say: "Unless the Detroit
and Cleveland and thc Cleveland and
Buffalo steamboat companies form a
close business alliance for the next
years' traffic there is likely to be a
fight for business between them.
Added to that situation is the rumor
that a direct line between Toledo and
Buffalc to be a part of the Clover Leaf
railway is probable. The election of
Mr.'McMillan as,tho general^roanager
of the Detroit and Cleveland line and
also of the Detroit and Buffalo line is
Baid to be the cause for changes in the
policy of these companies for Buffalo
business which will bring them into
competition with the Cleveland and
Buffalo Transit company He is said
to have entered into an agreement
with the officials of the Wabash railway to deliver freight and passengers
at Detroit for the through Buffalo and
Detroit boats instead of to the Cleveland and Toledo line at Toledo as
heretofore. An arrangement of this
kind would put tbe Detroit and
Buffalo liue into competition with thc
Big Four railway and the Cleveland
and Buffalo from St. Louis and Kansas City. This statement is strengthened by the fact that the Detroit and
Buffalo line has opened agencies at
St. Louis and Cincinnati with instructions to rush forward all of the easiness for the new line.
GOMEZ IN EVIDENCE.
Threatens to Give the Civil Governor
Trouble and to String Up Others.
Havana, Dec. 26.���Gen. Bartholme
Maso, candidate of the Democratic
party for the presidency of Cuba, left
here bound for his home In Man-
zanillo. He has given up the 3am-
paign. The demonstration of yesterday evening as well as tbe one held

Tommy Ryan Wants $1,000 For Training Jeffries in 1809.
Kansas City, Mo., Dec. 28.-Tommy
Ryan, onoe a prize fighter, but now
in business in Kansas City, brought
suit here today against James J.
Jeffries to recover $1,000, which he
alleges is due him for training the
world's champion for his fight with
James J. Corbett at Coney Island in
1890. The papers were served on
Jeffries while he was in a Turkish
bath, but he paid no attention to thc
matter. Ryan in his petition says he
rendered the services expeoted of bim

worth $2,500. Of this amount, Ryan
says Jeffries paid him $1,500 in three
different installments and that 8I.11O0

MUSTERING OF ARMIES.
Situation Between Venezuela and
Colombia Becomes Ominous.
Colon, Dec. 28.���Via Galveston.���
Newspapers just received here from
the coaBt towns in Colombia and Venezuela have much to say concerning
tbe present status of thc Venezuelan-
Colombian imbroglio.
The gist oi these newspaper articles
is to tbe effect that each republic is
still recriminating against tne other
for permitting tbe mustering of arms,
troops, ammunition, etc., and tbe
actual invading of the other'stenitory
in alleged violation of the laws governing the relations of the friendly
nations. These newspapers contain
no news of a declaraticn of war by
either Colombian or Venezuelan.
They set forth that the policy of
Colombia is oue of readiness to meet
any emergency, hence she will make
continued efforts to increase the numbers of her troops now on the Venezuelan frontier.
TEMPROARY PEACE.
Protocols Signed But Both Chile and
Argentina Prepare For War.
Buenos Ayres, Dec.26. -The protocol
between Chile and Argentina was
signed last evening putting nn end
for the present at least to the diplomatic rupture between the two
countries. It is generally considered
here that the remedy is not permanent
and the armies of both countries art
preparing for war.
Tbe Chilean government Is said to
have demanded $15,000,000 for defences and it has been decided to
fortify Punta Arenas and Tacahuano.
Argentina is meantime getting ready
by contracting for two war vessels of
8,000 tons each to be built in Italy by
the end of 1902.
In Chile the fcling is more hopeful
fur a continuance of peace and that a
permaLont treaty will soon be
arranged.
RIVAL TELEPHONE CO.'S.
Story of a War of Rates and the Losses
Sustained.
Vancouver, Dec. 26.���Behind tin-
snit for foreclosure and winding up of
the affairs of the Columbia Telegraph
and Telephone company, Instituted in
Vancouver by R. Kerr Houlgate, and
in which Mr. Justice Irving made an
order here last Friday, there Is un interesting history wbich is gleaned
from a gentleman at present in this
city from Grand Forks.
Thc story deals with the efforts of
two telephone companies to maintain
and operate systems in the Kootenays
with connections to Spokane. Five or
six years ago the first line was installed. Systems were placed in Spokane, Rossland. Giecnwood, Grand
Forks and other points where is was
thought business could bo secured.
This line was buiil by the Spokane
and British Columbia Telephone company, the principal stoekhoiiors in
which were Messrs. Oakes and Arris.
At nearly every point where its sts-
tem was installed it was forced into
competition with the Vnrnon and
Nelson Telephone company, which
was first in the field, 'lho inevitable
result was that rates for telephones
were cot to thc ground. Many instrument!   wer.i   inntalled where the reve
nue was not such as would pay either
compauy operating expenses. Both
eon;panics concluded to make tbe fight
to a finish and tile public laughed and
imagined itself benefited,
Hut it turned out that most people
were obliged to subscribe to both systems so that telephonic communication could be held by all persons who
used telephones. The result made tht
rates tar higher. Early in the game
Messrs. Oakes and Arils felt the loss
of money and were forced to sell to
U. O'Brien Itedilin, of Rossland. The
loss up to that time was about 810,OUO.
Mr. Rcddin sold out to Messrs.
Donald and Dave)', of Grand Forks,
and the latter linn concluded it would
torce the fighting and lay the Vernon
and Nelson'Teiephonc company on the
shelf. Backed by the unlimited capital of a financial institution in the
Boundary, this firm placed thc plant
in sucli a condition that it was at
least equal of tbe opposition company. A large amount ot ready caBh
was invested,but the proprietors found
that the shortage still remained in
the receipts,but their financial backer
bore the brunt, and it Is reported that
8150,000 was sunk iu the venture. The
Vetnon and Nelson company has also
been losing money on their propuity
for the last two years. ��
The suit which was instituted by
Mr. Houlgate will likely culminate
in the purchase of the interests of the
Columbia Telegraph and Telephone
company by the Vernon and Nelson
company, and so disastrous competition which has continued so long will
end.

Detroit, Dec. 26.���Dr. Longyear. who
is one of the attending surgeons on
General Alger, said tonight that the
cntioal period in the geiier.il'h illness
had passed and that his recovery was
practically certain so far as he could
determine at nresent.
No   Reason   Is   Assignable
for the  Desperate
Act.
Greenwood, Dec.26. ��� Lying on a Co
unconscious and his life s blood
slowly ebbing away from a bullet
hole in his head is Charles W. Vedder, a prominent business man of tbis
city.
Absolutely no cause can lie assigned
for self destruction other than a
temoprary fit of despondency. Vedder
was found sitting iu a chair in his
baok office by John W. Hartline at 1
o'clock. At his teet,bearing sufficient
testimony to tho terrible tragedy of
self destruction, was an old rusty 38
Smith and Weston revolver of flvo
oartldges in which two were exploded.
The bullet penetrated the rigid temple
above the ear settling in the base of
the brain. Dootors Spankie, Foster
and Schon after examining ths wound
pronounced it fatal; Vedder may live
ou until midnight.
Vedder was bom at Schenectady,
V. Y., 42 years ago. He came here
from Spokane a year ago forming a
partnership with Ralph Cunningham
in the general insurance business. In
Spokane he was associated with German Allenbcrg as manager of thc
Equitable Life Insurance company.
He is a Mason and a member of the
Kniglits of Pythias. Ralph Cunning-
bam, his partner, speaking of the
targody said: "I cannot attribute any
motive for Vedder's act, ; 1 left him a
few minutes before on to go to lunch,
at whicb time he was in apparently
good spirits. We had a flourishing
business, in good shape,and ho had no
cause to complain on tnis score. Ho
bad besides some means of his own.
The revolver was not kept in tho
office; he must have brought it <l"wn
town with him. I believe he carries
considerable life insurance. He teft
no letter or note assigning ur.y reason
for taking his life."
Mrs. Vedder is in a precarious
condition.    Vedder bas four children.

AN IMPORTANT CONFERENCE.
Thc recert conference in New York
between representatives of the trosts.
of labor and of the general public,
which was brought about through the
efforts of tho National Civic Federation, promises to bear good fruit. Its
dominant idea, as shown by the
soceches of those who attended, is
peace and a clear recognition of the
doctrine that strikes are a species of
civil warfare and hurtful to the sections in v*lii:li they occur, that
tnev have grown to the magnitude of
a national evil inthe United States
and that something must be dono to
prevent them if the country is to pros
per in the future. It revealed that
t'lere has come a sentiment, which is a
strong one, that labor troubles should
be adjusted by peaceful means instead
of canflicts. Strikes are costly not only
to the employer and the employee but
to the public, and the loss entailed
by a large strike in one of thc more
important industries is hard to compute. The strike is a clumsy method
at best and it is sincerely hoped that
some method will be found to replae
it.
The   personnel   of   some of tlie men
who participated in the conference is a
guarantee   that   something    feasible
something that will   operate   properly
at the critical time,    will bo   reached
as an outgrowth of the meeting.   Senator   Hanna,   besides being a successful,   though   withal,    praotical   politician,   emnloys   a   largo   number of
men.   Charles M. Schwab is the practical head of tbe Etcel corporation,nnd
as he has worked himself up lrom tin
ranks,    is   nothing if   not   practical.
Bishop Potter, while a famous churchman,    is   a man   of   wide   humanity.
Archbishop Ireland   lias tilled a large
position   the   public   eye   for a   long
time past and is something more than
a mere churchman.      Samuel Gompers
besides   being   a tried and true union
man, is a man of culture, well informed  in   political   economy and may be
relied on to seo to it that the interests
of his fellow workers   will not   suffer
in   any   confrencc   ln   which he   may
take part.    Theodore   Shaffer   and the
other labor representatives ate men of
ability and. integrity,    and   altogether
the conference   was   a   representative
one and   one calculated   to   command
thc respect of those most interested.
One most hopeful feature of the
conference wns tbe give and take
spirit whieh wns manifested and the
disposition shown to abandon meru
technical disputes and to seek solution for future disputes on the broad
ground of a common nnd mutual
interest.
The outcome of the conference was
thc formation of a committee made up
of representatives of the three parties
represented, and this body will endeavor to evolve a method by which
future labor disputes may be settled
without thu necessity of proceeding to
a strike Tlie committee will act as
arbitrators too, it is thought, when
any question arises between labor aud
capit'il of a sufficient magnitude to
command their attention.
Doubt has been expressed in some
quarters as to the probability of Unsuccessful working out of the idea
which called together the joint committee of the Labor Fcde ation. Tlie
prnpoted joint committee Is not a new
thing but has been successfully carried
out and lias beeu   found to work well.
To the printing trade, which has
always been in the forefront of progress, is tlie honor of having inaiigu-
ratul what will, so far ns past succes
wonld indicate, be tho basis for a
rearrangement ot the relations between employer line employee likely
to be generally adopted throughout
tbe world. Iu Germany the master
printers are organized in an association for mutual benefit uml all the
larger establishments are members of
the association, Matters affecting the
printing trade as a whole are discussed and acted upon by this body
and stops are taken to maintain
prices. if work is done at a price
which any consider; too low he is call
cd upon to justify his figures before a
committee of employers, and if no
ngreemeut is reached by that committee the matter is referred to a committee of members of the union. It
is thus apparent that the employers
have confidence in the fairmindedness
nf the workmen when they thus ask
hem to assume the duty of arbitrators.
The employer have also an organization rhieh embraces 75 per cent, of
the journeymen of the country. It
has 30,000 members and a fund of
81,000,000 and there has uot been a
strike for five years and unless something very unusual occurs there will
not be another for five years more.
The reason is that'each party recognizes conditions as they are, believes
that the other lias no great desire to
be unfair, and when a difficulty arises
they get together to reach a settlement.
In the early nineties a joint committee was first suggested but it was
not until 1890 that a committee was
struck and that year a working agreement was made for a period of five
years. Tli is agreement was found to
work admirably. With the introduction of new machines conditions arose
and were not thought of at the time
the agreement was signed. The now
conditions were considered by thiB
joint committee and a supplementary
agreement reached. The matter of
what should constitute- a day's
work, apprenticeship, different scales
of wages for different towns, j allow-
anca for elderly workmen unable to
do the average amount of wcrk, and
many other things which might cause
friction were all taken up and settled.
So satisfactory did the first working
agreement prove that at its expiry
there was no difficulty in arranging
the second which was entered into in
September last ar.d goes into effect at
New Year's.
That the plan in vogue in the printing trade in Germany is a wise oneex-
peiienee has shown,that each party is
ready to be fair, to give and take a
little, is shown by some of the terms
of the last agreement which were
widely different from any of thc terms
of agreements or demands made by
unions that are commonly seen. Some
of theso may be mentioned. \ minimum rate of wages is set and a joint
committee will visit the various cities
and fix what additional will be allowed for increased cost of living in those
cities, so that, as near as man can
arrange,the rate cf wages for printers
are uniform throughout all Germany.
Apprentices may continue in the shop
in which they have learned their trade
for a year longer at less tbnn the
standard wage. Journeymen under 21
yenis of age are paid a certain s^ale
and those from 21 to 23 another, both
less than that ior those over 23. The
journeymen have made the concession
that they must work a half hour over
time on a rush job if the employer
insists. Though the printing trade
generally has not been in a flourishing condition lately, the employers
conceded a slight increase in wages.
Dnring the five years just past the
number of employers' associations and
of printers' unions has greatly increased so that those who were disposed to hold aloof have apparently
come to the conclusion that the organizations have been for the benefit of
both workmen and employers.

EDITORIAL NOTE?.
The rich ores from Tonopah camp,
Nevada,at first were sent to tbe smelting works near Han Francisco for
treatment. Thc smelting charge was
so high that a change was made and
the ores are now sent to Everett,
Wash., because the mine owners can
pay for tho long water haul from San
Francisco to Everett and save $3 per
ton ot $3,000 on 1,000 tons of ore by so
doing. They prefer to do this to paying tlie exorbitant smelter charge to
the works near San Franeisoo.

It is evident that Marconi has caused the cold shivers to run down tlio
hacks of the holders of cable stock
from the action of the Anglo-American
company warning him from expert'
inenling in Newfoundland. lt is
claimed that Marconi will be unable
to experiment In Newfoundland until
the year P.I04. In lnr>4 tbe Anglo-
American company received a monopoly of telegraphy on tbe island for
a period of 60 years.    When this right
xpires he can renew his experiment!
in Newfoundland. Still there is a
obance for Marconi to circumvent tlie
company. lie ean locate a station on
the easternmost point on Labrador and
on the westermost point in Ireland
and the distance should not be but a
few miles greater than it is between
Newfoundland and Cornwall, England, over which be received those
signals.     There arises   a fine point in
quily in the exhibition of Marconi ill

ho lias the time and cares to await

Company doubtless has the exclusive
right to land oabUl in Newfoundland
and lo send and icceive messages over

the air? This is a question whicb |
would,   we fear, puzzle  somewhat the

Uur Sale continues to be a big success and the reason is not far to seek, for we bought the
stock at a low rate on the dollar and we are therefore enabled to sell goeds at
Much Lower Prices Than Some of Our Opposition
Although somewhat small we are evidently a sharp thorn in the side of one of our numerous would-be big competitors, who have condescended to take notice of our big sale. They
say they have no old bankrupt stock (sour grapes) for the same people tried hard to get
this same stock, but were just a trifle too low. '1 his stock of Clothing of Mr. Madson's is
the Newest in Nelson, for the reason that it is only about two years since he went into (he
Clothing business, and moreover Mr. Madson is well known to have been a friend of the
working man and for that reason did not purchase his goods from Cheap Labor Shops,
but from the most reliable manufacturers in the Dominion. Isers and would-be Stayers
sometimes sell Branch Stores and also have Discount Sales to raise the wind, by  George.
No small 10 per cent discount in our sale but everything in the store   goes   at and under
wholesale cost, which means a saving these hard times of 50 per cent and over.

and was filled with a host nf friends,
who sat down to a recherche wedding
dinner. Mr. Wm. Irvine, in an eloquent way, proposed the health of the
bride and groom, which was drunk
with enthusiasm. Mr. Nelson responded with a very nest speech, and
was followed by several others in a
happy manner. Music, song and story
ln rapid succession made the hours
glide rapidly away.

Kootenay Puwer Company Says Tramway Hub No Right to Sell to City.
It was reported  yesterday that  tho
procuring  of   eleotrio   power   by the
oity from the Tramway company, had
not turned ont as easy as had been expected,     tt   appears   that   the   West
Kootenay   Power   company   does  not
agree that the Tramway company had
the   authority   to dispose  of any sur
plus   power   to   the city, or  contends
that under the terms of Ihe agreement
the Tramway company had no surplus
power to dispose of.    At certain times
when the cars are going  up the steepest part of the hill, they use for a few
moments  nearly   the   full   power   at
their   disposal,   and under the agreement the highest amount   used at any
one   time   is the amount charged for,
and not the daily or   weekly averago.
The West Kootonay people aro understood to have expressed their willingness to deal with the city direct,   but
how the matter   will be   straightened
out  it  is   hard   to   say.   The  whole
question rests on the interpretation of
one olause in   agreement botween  the
power  oompany   and   the    Tramway
company.

Christmas day passed very quietly
in the city, the stormy weather preventing many people from being on
the street. There was a little sleigh
ruling in the afternoon, but the great
majority of the grown-ups stayed
in doors, except when called out by
business or social duties. At the
churches where services weie held
ihere was a good attendance.
At the Hume on Chr'.stmas Day a
dinner of unusual quality waa served.
and greatly enjoyed by the many

The irenu cards were so handsome
that many who partook of the dinner
preserved them as souvenirs of the
occasion.
A very successful Christmas tree
festival was given at the Salvation

Ou Christmas eve a very lively and
enjoyable Christmas tree entertainment was given at the Nelson
lestaurant. Originally it was to have
been only for the employees ot the
establishment, but a large number of
the guests wished to take part and the
Ireej quickly grew: to large dimensions, thv giving of the various presents exciting much merriment.
J The Phair outdid its usual excellence in the Christinas dinner on Wednesday. The several bon vivants who
make that house their headquarters
complimented Mine Host Phair on the
splendors of his table and none were
more profuse in their praise than was
Sheriff Tuck. Mr. 1'hair was very
grateful and particularly so at what
the sheriff said, as he acknowledges
that tbe latter is an epicure par excellence and he declared that praise
coming from such a source carried
much weight with it.
At the Congregational church last
evening a very enjoyable entertainment was given by the children of the
Sunday school, at which the following
porgramme was rendered: Recitation,
Kenny Mclleath ; instrumental, Miss
Pfeiffer; recitation, Lulu Fisher;
Song, Haiold Cameion; recitation,

tion, Cora Fisher; recitation, Geva
Murray; piano duett, "Winnie and
Rusde Ewart; solo, Harold Cameron,
At the conclusion of the programme
presents were distributed from the
Christmas tree to all the children
present, and supper was also served.
A pleasant social half hour ended the
entertainment.
The cantata, Mrs. Santa and Her
Dolls, was given last evening to a
crowded audience at the Methodist
church, the occasion being the annual
Christmas tree entertainment. The
ccstuines were very good, the children
being made up in a manner that reflected groat credit on Mrs. J. II.
Wallace, who was largely instrumental
in making the affair a success. lhe
cantata opened with the chorus, We
Welcome All, followed by What Shall
We T)o if the Children Get Siok? At
ihe end of the first part of the cantata
the report of the Sunday school for the
past year was read by the superinten
dent, Mr. H. Amos, which showed
that it was in a most prosperous condition. A recitation hy Alvin David
son followed, and then a parade of the
nations, representee! by ten boys very
cleverly costumed, and a song by
three girl*, A Bird in the Hand.
After the cantata ten pretty little tots
dressed in night gowns and each
carrying candles and doll marched in
ami tang Good Night. This concluded
the programme with the exception of
the giving of presents to the children,
wtiich appeared to be as greatly enjoyed by the adults as by the yonng
sters. Mrs. Annable as Mrs. Santa
scored a great success, and J. H.
Wailace made a most acceptable
Santa.

That dizzy feeling, sluggish brain and throbbing headache are all direct results from the use of coffee.
"Coffee works like a poison to me.
It aots on my brain and nerves In a
peculiarly disagreeable way.
"JJeing forced to give up coffee, I
did it In a half-boa rted way, drinking
cocoa in tlic morning,luit soon becnine
tired of that and longed for the real
Java.
"Finally I tried I'ostum Food
Coffee,and since that time have drunk
it to the exclusion of every other beverage.    Vou ean imagine I like it.
"Last summer I was in a plnce
where nothing but Java ooffee was
screed on the breakfast, table, and I
recommence! the use of 't.
"In two or three weeks 1 ngain
began to suiter from dizziness and
explosive noises in mv head. ]
"One evening after walking about
half a raile 1 became 'lizzy and could
hardly get back home, where I fell,
exhausted, on the bed. I knew what
the trouble was, and thereafter insisted upon having Postum instead of
tbe oU-fashioncd coffee, and I got
well in short order.
"I have always thought it worth
while to warn the cook, wherever I
happen to he, to make the Postum
properly, thnt is, by boiling it long
enough. Please do not print my
name.''
