Something About the  Delegates Present
and What They Do When They
Are at Home.
'.E>
If you didn't shake hands in the
Masonic way you didn't amount to
much at the City hotels last night.
Tehy were full of Masons. It rained
Masons and rain water. The generous downpour of the latter kept the
former indoors so the reporters were
able to run some ot them down. It is
all occasioned by the meeting of the
Oiaid Lodge of Hritish Columbia in
annual convention. They pick out the
best places on the map to meet in
and that is wny they meet in Nelson.
Today anu tomorrow they will transact their business and on Saturday
they will commence to shake hands in
the ordinary way and go home. A
whole lot of them have never been in
Nelson before so it was necessary
to explain to them that the steady
downpour of rain was merely for the
purpose of cleaning the sidewalks so
they would look spick and span this
morning. To the delegates from the
Coast it was explained that the rain
was arranged in order tnat they would
teel perfectly at home, but most of
them expressed a desire to feci perfectly away from home. The local
Masons extended them the freedom of
the City and otherwise endeavored to
make the evening enjoyable. At the
head of thc craft is Most Worshipful
Griird Master Harry II. Watson of
Vancouver,a member of Cascade Lodge
No. 13. He is a young man to occupy such an exalted position and is
very popular among his fellow-
Ma��ons He is a member of the firm
of McDowell, Atkins & Watson,
wholesale druggists of the Terminal
City. He used to be an oarswan and j
was _ member of the senior four oar
crew that won the senior event at
Portland and later at Vancouver a few
years ago.
Another Vancouver man is C. E
Tisdale, ex-M. P. P., and an ardent
supporter of the deceased Seralin-Cot-

Life of Now York. Mr. Henderson is
a very live insurance man and nlso a
prominent Mason.
Tlie veteran Mason of them all is
C. Hoskei, Grand Tyler of the Grand
Lodge. He is a Vancouver man aud
was a Mason when most of the
rest of them were wearing short trousers and stealing apples.
And then there is James Slater,ulso
of Vancouver. Ilo is the agent of the
0. P. R. there, a Scotchman, junior
warden of Cascade Lodge, and a man
who has never seen Nelson before.
Notwithstanding this last alllict!on
he is a jolly good fellow and his training in the Hritish Navy has given him
a dignified bearing that could be gained no place else. He can sing and is
prominent in amateur theatrical circles In Vancouver.
Dr. Walker is a past Grand Master
of New Westminster Union Lodge.
He pract.ices in the Royal City and is
a brother of Mr. Walker, a Nelson
bank man.

medical men. Its secretary, Dr.
Smith, is als.o a delegate of   the town
that entertains some Nelson people at
the Government's expense.

Kamloops Lodge No. In, was here a
couple of years ago when the Associat
ed Boards of Trnde met in Faternity
hall. He had such a good time that
he is'Mickled to death to get back
again   in such good company.
G. T. Mallery is a druggist in Kamloops and is senior warden of the

The trackmen engaged on tbe Kootenay division of the C. P. R. will
strike toduy. An announcement to
this effect was made by some of the
men yesterday. As far as the Strike
here is concerned it is expected to be
an orderly affair as the men are going out purely on account of sympathy for their eastern brethern and
have themselves no axes to grind with
the company.
The officials state that any strike
will not interfere with the train service as there are any amount of men
to patrol the lines.

STARTLING SUICIDE.
St. Catherines, Ont., June 19.���A
startling tragedy occurred a few miles
outside of the city limts late yesterday
when Wm. Hodgkinson, a well known
trapper and farmer, ended his life by
blowing off the top of his head with

the muzzle of thc gun in his mouth,
he put his toe on the trigger, shooting himself in the mouth and blowing off tho top of his head. He leaves

EAST KOOTENAY MATTERS.
Great Development Going  on   in   tbe
Coalfields.
Gold Commissioner J. F. Armstrong,
of Fort Steele, who is one of the delegates attending the Anglican Diocesan Synod at present sitting in
Nelson, is a guest at the Phair. Mr.
Armstrong is one of the best known
and well informed men in East Kootenay, of which he has been a resident
for a large number of years. In conversation with a Miner reporter Mr.
Armstrong said that the eoal fields
of the Crow's Nest Pass were being
developed as rapidly as possible.
Blairmore, Michel and Fernie were
all going ahead. At Michel it is probable that the Crow's Nest Coal company will.shortly have their complete
title to the land occupied by the town
site, when building and other improvements will probalby liven up considerably. So fur the not being able
to buy lots hns hindered the growth
of the new town considerably. At
Fernie there is a large Slav element,
caused by the demand for labor being strong there. Six miles north of
Elko, a new town is also expected to
spring up, as some valuable mines are
being opened up there. The Elk valley will undoubtedly be the scene of
immense development and growth of
population within the next few years,
more so even thnn in the past. Four
years ago there were hardly a dozen
residents todny it has probably three
thousand, with tbe populaion bound
to increase evtn faster right along.
In the Kootenay valley, around Fort
Steele and Cianbrook, from Mr. Armstrong's remarks, conditions do net
seem to' have changed much In the
past yeur, although the trouble In the
lead industry has seriously retarded
thc advancement of this most prom is
ing section. All the towns, outside
the coul belt, are feeling the effects
of this more or less acutely. Many
promising properties have been uncovered during the year, but the outlook
being so bad for lead, little but assessment work is being done on most.
Throughout the St. Mary's river
country but for this the development
shonld be rapid. Ranching is well
forward in Mast Kootenay this summer, it having been a good season so
far.
THE DAY'S DEAD.

A    DAUGHTER   OP    THE   I10R-E-
LEECH.
We do not suppose there is a man
in British Columbia who has the
slightest desire to injure the Canadian Pacific Company. The almost universal, certainly ' the predominant,
feeling is one of pride and friendly
interest in what is regarded as Canada's great national railway. We all
desire its prosperity, and are willing
to be taxed in rather stiff 'reight
and passenger rates in order that the
Company may maintain the present
excellent standard of the road and to
s:ive enough over to make a reason ���
able return to the shareholders. A
railway company that is accorded this
measure of good will receives from
the public as much as it can ask or
expect in the way of popular favor.
Canadians yield this willingly, and
not less British Columbians than
others. But although we may desire
the prosperity of tho Canadian Pacific, and have nothing but good wishes
for it. we object to being kicked and
cuffed and beaten and trampled upon
by it. We are its fiiends, but do
not wish to be its slaves. We do not
want to see this country turned over
to it, tied hand and foot, for a Company tbat can ask such a thing shows
by the very asking that it is disposed
to go too far and natuially arouses
suspicion. The Canadian Pacific
cannot want all the field to itself in
this Province unless it is full of tbe
purpose to take advuntage of its monopoly. Another road from the interior of Southern British Columbia to
the Coast is a necessity ot conditions
that have been developed within the
past few years. There is no reason
why the franchise should go to the
Canadian Pacific; there is one powerful reason why it should not. It is
not liood lor any country to have to
depend on one railway alone; there is
too great a temptation to make the
most of the monopoly. But in addition to this the interests of Southern
British Columbia are of a character
to require competition, if they are to
enjoy the protection necessary to
their development and growth.
What is true of (South Africa is equally true of this Province��� 'it is injurious that all thc trunk railway lines
slum hi be in tlio monoply of one
company.''
The Great Northern has offered to
build from Kootenay to the Coast,
and to give this whole section of
country thc benefits of competition. It
has offered to do this ��n terms that
not long ago weie regarded most favorably by our Government and Legislature. But the Canadian i'aciflc
steppea in, captured tiie Government
and Legislature, and said no, and no
it has been. The exercise of such
Influences as this is a paiblie. menace;
it ought to. if it does not, inspire a
feeling of alarm. It is said in excuse for tho impending monopoly that
the Great Northrn is ft foreign corporation. The Canadian Pacific and its
friends should lie the last to plead au
excuse of this kind. On one side of
the continent it runs into Hoattle,
and on tbo other it crosses the (State
of Maine, whi lo in the centre it runs
for hundreds of miles from Portal
to Minneapolis anil on to the Sault.
We call it our national roitd, but it
is almost half American:! yet a plea
is made in its behalf that it is entitled to monopoly In liritisli Columbia,
because competition can bo obtained
only tlnough means of a foreign road.
Ministers at Victoria had the amazing audacity to advance this in defence of the treachery they had resolved to ia nniit to tho Provincial interests they were sworn to protect.

and competitive line, not only would
there bave been a welcome railway
subsidy from the Dominion Government, but enormous amounts of private capital would have be.m ready
for investment in tbe mining, smelting, and refining industry. The mining districts would have immediately
felt the stimulus and so would the
cities of Victoria and Vancouver. An
era of energetic progress of hope and
effort would have been inaugurated.
An industry would have been en
a fair way to establishment which
would have brought fresh shipping
to our ports, fiesh 'commerce to our
merchants, and extended usefulness
to our coal mines. But alas! This
forward movement has been postponed
until the control of its destinies is
wrested fiotn *he enemies of their
country. Lethargy, discontent, nnd
hopefulness have been distiibuted
both in tbe mining districts of tho
interior and in tbe cities of tbe Coast,
which may be directly traced to the
railway policy of the Government and
its detern inatiou to tie the country
up to conditions under whicli no country in the world ever did prosper, because they are conditions under which
no country in tbe world ever could
prosper.''
A business firm in Auckland, New
Zealand, having relations with Canada and desiring to extend them,
have istued a circular containing suggestions intended to promote trade between the two countries. Here il
an extract: "The C. P. R. being unfortunately a private company, only
looks to the interest of her shareholders and does not c ire a scrap about
the national interests. If the C P.
R. could be moved to put manufacturers in Canada on the same footing
as thc United StateB companies do
their own people, things would be
more equitable." Also, one would
think, things would be better for the
C. P. R. itself. And therein is the
wonder it persists in continuing its
policy of selfishness. Why does it
not see and act on the broad principle that whatever is best for Canada
as a whole must be lies' for it in the
long run?	
Tho Post, a smart little Weekly published at Viotoria, has the following;
"If instead of negativing tho construction of the Coast-Kootenay railway, tho Dunsmuir Government had
decided thnt lit all hazards it was to
be built, and built as an   independent
The Coast cities are beginning to
realise that with one rail'vay there
will also be a monopoly of ocean
traffic. It would doubtless be an excellent thing for the monopoly, but
it would be very bad for the Province. And the curious part of it is
'that for this biack outlook the country is indebted to that great "business" statesman, Mr. James Dunsmuir.

The following are two paragraphs
of an advertisement appearing iu The
Colonist of the bale of lots In the Government townslte of Tnlaineen, which
iB to take place at Victoria, on July
17th: Similkameen whose coal measures have been traced from north of
Tulamcen townsitc,across and extending to the south branch of the similkameen river, Tulamecn being located
in the centre of the coal areas, whi ill
are being vigorously prospected under
licenses issued by the Lands -and

The C. V. R. Railway have located
lines of railway from Midway.through
Allison and Otter Creek valley, along
Otter Creek through Aspen Grove,
Spence's Bridge. The alternate line
of railway takes in the coal measures
of which Tulameen townsite ia the

This would look as if the Government considers tlio Princeton eoal of
value, aud that they expect transportation through thai, portion of the district via C.   P. R. in the near future.
A LUCKY FIND.
Whnt proved to be a move profitable find than gold happened the other day to a traveller from San Francisco, while at lunch in one of the
leading restaurants in Nelson. He
ordered a portion of Pumpkin pie,
when to his astonishment his appe-
titic, which he had lost fifteen years
ago in Arizona, suddenly returned to
him, with renewed vigor. The pie
had a very solid texture and a rich
mellow flavor. The cook informs us
that it was made from "The Morse
Pumpkin Flour." None other just ns
good.    Insist on "The Morse Brand."

THE CITY
KWWvWMVWAMWrWMI
The Nelson Gun club will have a
shoot tonight at T o'clock.
It is rumored that there is likely to
be another close down of the silver-
lead mines at Moyie shortly.
Preparations were made st Cottonwood creek yesterday to present any
sudden rise from doing damage.
The fire works for the Dominion
Day celebration have been received by
Gilbert Stanley. They weight 250
pounds and will make a grand pyrotechnic display.
The meeting of the hose reel team
which was called to meet at the store
of Max Crowe, has been postponed
and will bo held on Friday evening
next, instead, at - o'clock.
During the thunder storm yesterday
some hailstones fell that were as laige
as cherries, fortunately very sparingly
though���by the time this item has
travelled a little they will probably
have grown to the size of apples.
The west end of Vernon street is
being graded. The horse racing which
is one of the events on the programme
for the Dominion Day sports will be
conducted in that part of the city.
From the vigorous contention of a
local paper, (conducted by gentlemen
of the most exquisite refinement of
mind and manners), it would seem
that theie are such things as "scab
stores as well aB "scab'' vvorkingmen.
The Ladies' Society of the Swedish
church will have their first meeting
this evening at the residence] of Mrs.
Andrew Liubath on the corner of Kootenay and Houston streets. The meeting will commence at - o'clock. Mrs.
Magnnson is president and .Mrs. Mast-
berg, treasurer,
The following additional prizes
have been received by Secretary Cameron, for the Dominion Day selebra-
tions. One ease of Kegal Palling
Powder, through Morrison at Cald
well, from the firm of Balfour & Co.,
Hamilton, One..valued at 815; aud one
dozen cabinet photos from Allan Lean,
photographer.
The Athabasca saloon fish pond is
attracting a large share of attention
just now on account of the specimens
of fish which are disporting themselves in the large tank. There seems
to be a mutual pleasure in the matter
as the fish appear to enjoy the attention paid to them as much as the
spectators enjoy the privilege of seeing how the fishes swim.
The train service for tlie celebration
at Slocan City next week is as follows: Leave Sandon 11,30 a. in., fare
St.05; Thiee Forks 7 a. m.. fare SI.75:

for the purpose of making arrangements for the commencement of the
work on the new ar.y barracks.
He will bring with him a number of
specimen plans, which will be submitted to the local officers. After
they have decided as to the nature of
the building they intend to erect the
plans will be prepared and tenders

be pushed right along. The major
will come lo Nelson from Fernie on
Monday's Crow's Nest boat.
THEY DO IT.
Feople ��taiili Colfee ami <.<���! Well   on Pon-
Inin Food I'olTee.
A man in Miiford, Ind., say he did
not, quit drinking coffee because he
thought it hurt him, but because he
found a morning beverage he liked
better in Postum Food Coffee, but to
his wonder and surprise, he found in
a few weeks all of the old symptoms of
sickness had left him.
He had been greatly troubled with
his stomach and heart,also with what
is called "water brash," and dull
headaches "which made me very irritable and quick tempered."
All of these symptoms disappeared
and he discovered, in spite of all his
previous theories,that coffee was really the cause of his troubles, and leaving, off of coffee and taking on Postum Food Coffee brought about a perfect cure.
lie speaks also of Mrs. Josephine
Kelly, living at Elkbart, Ind. Says
she was afflicted much as he was,
but had become more emaciated than
he. So she quit drinking coffee and
took on Postum Fowl Coffee. She is
now a healthy and robust lady and
willing 1.1 make affidavit that Postum
Food Coffee saved her. The gentleman
from .Miiford speaks also of Thomas
McDonald as having recovered by using I'ostum, It can be had at all grocers. A good eiip of I'ostum cannot bo
made unless it is boiled long enough
to bring out thc flavor and food
value, then it is delicious.
Tin- annual meeting of the Ncl��on
school board io announceed to be held
on .lune .(ith. for the purpose of electing a new school trustee In the place
of Oeo. Johnstone, whose term has
expired. The meeting will be held at
II o'clock in the school house.
There was only one case before the
magistrate yesterday, that of a disor
derly musician who bad been in the
habit of making daikness hideous by
bis discordant notes and his disoider-
ly conduct. Tbe police took him in
charge and Magistrate Crease wound
him up to the tune of 825 and costs.
The clerks of the city have arranged an excursion on the lake this afternoon. The Movie has been chartered
for the occasion and the round trip
will be only 50 cents. This should
prove to be a very attractive excursion
and given fine weather there will no
doubt '-t- a large number to enjoy the
lake and mountain scenery.
Rossland is from three to four
hours distant from Nelson. An evening paper is published at Rossland,
called The World. It is, of course, on
The Miner's exchange list. Owing
to the fearful and wonderful mail ser>
vice which tlie authorities are supplying to this part of the country, The
World does not reach The Miner office
until the second day after publication. It takes about thirty six hours
to cover fifty or sixty miles.
Messrs. Ganc ... Macdonald, the local
architects and overseers appointed by
the Dominion Government to superintend the new postofiice building
contract, are in receipt of a telegram,
received yesterday from Ottawa that
Viau at LeMoine's foreman left Ottawa yesterday for "Nelson to commence
work on the postofiice building immediately on bis arrival. This will
be welcome news to the mechanics of
the city who Iia��e been anxiously
awaiting the commencement of tbe
work.
Mr. McNaugbton, one of the Masonic Grand Lodge delegates from
Vancouver, brings word tbat the new
boats which were to be shipped to
the Nelson Boat club Monday last are
detained at the makers, W. Watts..
Vancouver.awaiting the arrival of the
row locks and seats from Warren of
Toronto. Mr. Watts has done all in
his power to accelerate the completion of the boats but the Toronto
house bas disappointed him and he
does not know when he can get them
away.
The fire laddies are expressing disappointment at the smallness of the
prizes offered for the hose reel contest which they claim will prevent the
outside teams from entering the competition. Tbe amount of Slid, which
tbe sports committee are offering for
the contest, is utterly inadequate as
an inducement for them to entsr.
(ireenwood, Rossland and Easlo are
anxious to appear in the contest but
as the amount of the prize offered, if
won by an oustide team, would not
even buy them beer after their expenses were paid, they do not think
that it is worth their while to come.
The firemen think that if the committee assist the players in other
contests to come to the city they also
should show the same favors to the
competitors in question. On the other
hand the glory of winning should be
taken into consideration.

A number of tramps are doing the
city these days and presumably taking
their observations. They confine their
attentions chiefly to the streets farthest removed from the police court and
are not always as polite as tbey might
be. Their hours are not a ways the
most convenient either, but as Weary
Willie must be waited on when be is
ready and fed only when he is hungry
there may be some excuse. Recently
a Weary Willie called at one of the
residences on the hill as early as 0
o'clock in the morning and asked for
breakfast. The kindhearled lady invited him in and set before him the
best she had in the house. This was
not what be wanted and with wonderful presence of mind, ilosely akin to
gall, he asked for some coffee. When
politely informed there was none in
the bouse he demanded some eggs.
Receiving the same unkind treatment
he then proceeded with increasing
candor, to cross examine the lady by
asking about her husband,' family,
etc. The lady began to think that
matters had gone far enough and
made the presence of Weary Willie
known to parties upstairs. Tbis was
more than his majesty expected and
when a stentorian male voice called
down the stairs he walked away with
injured dignity. Another evening in
the same neighborhood it was found
necessary to fetch in the clothes which
were hanging out in the back yard to
prevent them from being stolen. Frequently during the last few weeks
this element of the city's population
have been making themselves particu
larly objectionable especially in tbe
early morning when there is a reasonable likelihood of the men of the
house being away. Only a few days
ago one made his appearance at a
lady's aioor presumably for the purpose of peddlin^fa gold ring which he
claimed he had to sell   to buy a meal.

To make ready for Nelson's Eleventh Annual

house is well supplied with all kinds of China,
Glass and Earthenware, so when your many
friends from the surrounding towns drop in
you will not be left short and find it difficult
to serve them all at once.
We are offering these goods at a reduction of
from 20 to 40 per cent below the usual selling
prices, which would make your display on
Dominion Day not onlythe grandest but also

the money in all the eleven years.
