DEVELOPMENT
Results of Work on Group of
Claims   on   Morning
Mountain.
What Is Being Done at the
Mines Around   Sandon
General  Notes.
David Mowat returned to the city
on Friday evening from Morning
mountain, where he and a number of
men have been engaged during the
list week or ten days in doing development worlr on the Niagara, Spring
field, Oregon Fractional and Mary
Tudor claims. This group is the piop-
ertv of Jesse Graham. T. McCcleman,
J. II. Nickerson and the gentleman
above named of this city. As the result of their operations during the
last few days they report a rich strike
on the property of a 40 foot vein,
which has been already traced a distance of 1200 feet. The ledge has
been uncovered within 1500 feet of
Sandy creek and there is a reasonable
evidence that the ledge extends to
tho creek. The Harvey Joy, which
abuts one of tbe claims of this group,
approaches to within a few feet of the
ledge aheady exposed and th.re are
indications that the ledge extends to
tbat claim. The Harvey Joy was
located in the year 181)3, and the only
work done on it since then bas been
assessment work so that there has
been nothing to indicate thenaturo of
it beyond tht fact that the adjoining
property is so near and that the ledge
is heading in its direction. The ore is
probably a low grade but the size of
tbe ledge and the free milling quality
of the ore will make the property an
ea,��y one to work. Surface assays of
the property have yielded 8".50 and
samples of tbe ledge have been forwarded to Boston and New York A
number of men are continuing development work ou the property and the
owners are confident that they have
a good proposition on their hands.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Sandon, July 13.���The Star is the
only property that has a full force of
men working. It has about 125. The
Amercan Hoy has abont 35; the Payne
add Last Chance about 30 each; but it
Is generally supp.sed both of these
properties will increase their forces
very shortly. There are perhaps 188
more men scattered around among the
other properties.
Mr. Warner appears to he making
a success of the Wonderful mine. He.
Is Btoping now and shipping ore
found in plaee in a ledge, something
never done before in its history, previous shipments were from   Hoat   ore.
Mr. tliut'/burger is building an ore
liouse and residence at the Monitor
Three Forks. The property is turning
out well under his management.
Dr. Hendryx and Mr. Stunson aud
their wives from California, nre visiting at tho Last Chance cottage. They
aie both largely interested in tile
mine. j
The   Noble Fire shipped   a   car  of
clean ore this week,the first in several I
years. I
Mr, Tinllng, of Three Forks, has a
contract to drive a long tunnel on the
Canadian group.
Mr. Vallance Is refitting his residence in fine style. The sohool building is being painted by D. J, McLach-
lan which will add much to its appearance.
W. Culver, foreman of thc Star mill
and Miss E, White, a sister of Mr.
Bruce White, were married on Thursday ovening by the Rev'. M. Ferguson.'
Ymir, July 13.��� The official returns
from the June run at the Ymir show
that 80 stampB ran 27 days of nine
hours, with estimated profit on oper-
ating of 823,080. Tbis brings the total
net profit mude during the first five
months of 1!) il up to over 8108,500, or
an average of over 821,700 perlmontb.
Out of this total a dividend of 848,-
000 has already been paid and a second
one of a similar amount is' payable in
a few days.
It has alwayB been maintained hitherto by tho company's engineer that
outside the big shoot no* being worked, the Ymir vein did not seetnj to
contain any body of pay ore.   Such   a
bo ly has row j been discovered, however, on a claim owned by the Yuiii
company, lying northwest of tbe pres-
jent workings. The ore is reporlei
to be exactly similar to thnt of thi
first shoot and of much the same aver
age vnlue. A force of men has alreadi
been put to work to exploit this new
discovery, which forms an important
addition to the already large asset
of the coinpany.
Preparations are now being madi,
for tbe installation ot the large cyanide plant at tho Ymir. Such a plant
covers a large area of ground, and thi
building which Is to contain tin
tanks will be 300 feet long and require half a million feet of lumber,
for which a contract is now being lei
for this timber, which is to be cut ai
the eom-a-'y's own sawmill.���Spokesman Review.
The 10-stamp mill which Finch &
Campbell are building at the Second
Relief, near Erie, I!. C, Bhould be
running in about 40 days. A force ol
50 men is working on it. Meanwhili
development underground has been
suspended. The property Is in goor
shape to produce regularly as soon tu
the mill is running.
A strike of considerable importance
was made last week on the Silver
Glance and Summit Queen claims Bit
uated above Bear Lake, near the London Hill group,says the Kaslo Kocten-
aian. A six-inch seam of ore was
encountered, consisting of black sul-
phurets of silver fron? which assay
values of 7,800 ounces of silver were
obtained, This property was located
io 1803 by E. Erick.on and Colonel
Ruasell of Spokane, but Col. Russell
has since disposed of his interest to
the present owners, who are E.Erick-
sou, D/McPhail, Dr. J. F. B. Rogers
and Dr. Arthur of Nelson.
Frank Smith, Jack Meluish, Archie
McDougall, Dan McPhail and Pat
Keogan took part in a lively race last
week for the Upper Duncan to relo
cate the claims "of tho Lodestar Com
pany, which lapsed on July 6th.
Horses, canoes and tbe steamer Argenta were all utilized by the different
parties to oe first on the ground. McPhail and Keogan, who were partners,
and thoroughly knew the country and
claims, took their time aud travelled
by the legitimate lines as fur as Hall's
Landing from which point, by their
superior knowledge of the country,
they were able to reach the property
lirst and managed to secure the
cream of the vacant ground. They
express themselves as more than pleased to endure the hardships of a rather difficult trip in getting possseBsion
of what ib known to be a very valuable property. Samples of ore which
they brought in with them bear ou
their claim to having a property thai
is second to none. It is much to be
regretted that after all the money expended by the Lodestar company that
mismanagement haB lost to thc shareholders what would certainly have
proved a dividend payer with very
little more expenditure. Assays from
this property across a six foot face
gaveupwardBof 835 in all values. Fine
camps and complete outfits, which
were supplied by the company, are
���till on the ground and a good trail
built to convenient   transportation.

Monfreal, July 13.���Business men
liere don't share the opinion of the
London correspondent of the Chicago
Kecord-nerald, that there is a bitter
jnticiarn of Lord Strathcona and
Mount Royal, intended to dislodge
him from his position as high commissioner of Canada in London, and
that in London's Canadian colony
tbe old statesman and financier is
accused of giving only half hearted
support tc the Dominion's 'vaunting
commercial ambitions, and that
demand is being made for a younger
and more aggressive commissioner."
E. B, Greenshlelds, Son <_ Co., said:
"The report is kardly worth denying
it is so absurd. Canada is well represented by Lord Strathcona,and I am
certain the Liberal government .is as
friendly to him as waa the Conseiva-
tive government. He has been absolutely impartial. Canada wantB to
keep him as long as he is willing to
Btay."

Napoleon A. Belcourt, M. P., of Ottawa,and a party of friends are in the
city on their way to Yukon.
Applications for harvesters are pouring in to the local government. It is
estimated each farmer will require
from four to eight extra hands. One
township alone calls for 125 extra
men.
Today was thu hottest day of the
year,the thermometer registering near
the century mark. Crops coming along
nicely and harvest promises to be
early and immense. The death took
place of John Kowin Healey, a popular young merchant today.
A rumor to the effect that the local
government is going to the country
seems to have good grounds for belief.
It is a fact that election machinery Is
being brought into shape. Thc election may be brought on early in the
winter.
In the caBe City of Winnipeg vs. C.
P. R., the appeal for special leave
to appeal from Supreme Court Canada
to Privy Council, mado beforo latter
body this morning in London, has
been refused. Suit was for 830,000
claimed by thc city for school taxes.
Contested on the grounds of a bylaw
pasBed September, 1881,which exempted the company from school ['.taxes as
well as municipal. Manitoba court
decided in favor of the city and eu-
pre.me court against. Litigation now

Veterans Play Baseball
the Public Library

for
Again  the McFarland  Men
Prove to Be Peerless
Athletes.
They used to call them Iambi,! ns
Terrible Tameless Tigers but now it
muBt be changed to Tamblyn's Thoroughly Tamed Tigers. Twice tbey
have endeavored to take into camp
McFarland's Muffers, once at lacrosse
and yesterday at baseball, and on
hoth occasions they have failed. The
McFarland colors are Hying high
for the 82ore yesterday was 19 to 10 in
favor of the McFarland people, who
also have an inning's to spare. This
was largely owing to the executive
ability of the chief of the McFarland
clan who was ably assisted by W. A.
Macdonald. If you asked Frank
Tamblyn he would say that it was
because Chief Lillie played but a close
sorutiny of The Miner's score would
.how that the. chief did not an omit
to inich after all. At all
events the Tamblyn people consented
to the chief playing and if he put up
a good game it is all the more to his
credit. The game had many feature .
To start with it was sandwiched in
between the morning's rain and the
evening's rain. Tho weather clerk
emphasized the fact that he was keeping off the rain for the game by dis
tributing a few drops during the
struggle. George Johnstone's meteoric batting caused a congestion of
the clouds which collided with terrific foice and net results as soon as
it was ail ovor. Another featuie was
tbe catching of Hugh Cameron who
has since been offered a lucrative sit
uation as catcher for the Trail
team. Then there was the umpiring
of Dr. Doherty. He was as affable,
amiable and accurate as if be were
performing an operation for appendicitis. Of course, when it came to a
close decision and he had to put one
man out, that man knew full well that
the referee was "lotten," and all
kinds of bad things but the Doctor
smiled genially through it all and
was  given three cheers at the end.
If all the Tigers played their games
as well as did Hugh Cameron, who
smiled ferociously through the catcher's mask at the umpire, there
might be a different tale to tell. And
Hunter, the Tigers' "south paw"
pitcher also distinguished himself
by striking many men out and running like a streak of greased lightning when on the bases, .lunge Forin
is a star player and should havo been
put in the pitcher's oox earlier. They
left him to the last innings and he
got even by knocking tbe rirfht
thumb almost off Hugh Cameron with
the first ball he threw. John Houston
made three runs. He has had so muoh
practice running for ollice that he
found the bases quite easy and they
fairly seemed   to slide under his feet.
Nimble Jimmy" Annable did some
very tall hitting and brought in a
whole lot of runs. Ho wus left on
bases twice and got ou them by good
batting.
Chief Lille made the only home run
ot the day aud came within an ace
of making another. When bo started
on the successful one somebody yelled
"Fire!" and it had the desiied effect.
He swatted the ball in a manner that
was distinctly disheartening to the
Tigers As Btated above, W. A. was
a Btar. Some mean man among the
Tigers said it waB his legal training
that was responsible for his stealing
so many bases but that is decidedly
uncomplimentary and untruthful.
Tbo K. C. Kan Catch though. McFarland made the sensational catch
of the day, hauling down a sky scraper from Cameron's bat and rotirlng
the side. He also made three runs,
with the assistance of Macdonald's
legs, as one of the lower extremities
of McFarland became used up In his
first effort. When John Gibson first
went to the bat he endeavored to
knock the cover off the ball and almost succeeded. Someone yelled
"Free buB to the Phair," and another
told John that there was a Tory on
third base that might be converted
into   a   good   Grit.   Then  John   tan
and reached third base in   amazingly
short   time.    The   six-foot     four    of
George Johnstone was all   behind the
bat ever time he struck   at   the   ball.
If he ever meets that ball again  when
it is   ready   to   resent   hard   knocks,
Heaven help George.
This is the way the score stood:

and will return to Nelson in about
three weeks.
Work has been started at thc Nakusp shipyards" on a new steamer to
ply on Arrow Lake in connection with
the construction of tho Lardeau
branch.
It is said that the land west of the
Fairview addition which was recent
ly surveyed in lots an put on the market has been withdrawn as it is
thought there are good prospects of
the refinery being located there.
There will be a sacred song service

choruses, solos, duets, quartettes.
The public are cordially invited.
Mrs. Ellis, wife of Mr. John Ellis
of this city, left the other evening
for Windsor Mills,   near   Sherbrooke,
uc,, on a visit to her brother who is

good music.
There -were no cases at tho police
court yesterday raoriiing.and the only
matter to come befoie the magistrate
was the granting of a summons for assault in the matter of a Frenchman's
quarrel. Thu summons was granted to
N. Bruce, who charged Henri Slgaint
with attempting to close bis month
iu a too demonstrative and forcible
manner. Tbe case will come up befoie the magistrate tomorrow morn
ing.
A peculiar experience was enjoyed
by an engineer in Manitoba neai
Brandon recently. When tlie train
was in the neighborhood of a small
station, called Douglas, the engineer
found that the grade, which be had
previouBly had comparatively little
trouble to climb, was going to bo be
yond his power to accomplish, Investigation disclosed the fact that the
grasshoppers, which appear to bo enjoying themselves in some parts of
Manitoba this year, had assembled in
large numbers on the track and the
train passing over had changed tbem
into u greasy substance on tbe flanges
of the wheels, causing the wheels of
the engine to lose their grip. A liberal Biipply of sand relieved the situation,but tlie engineer thinks that bis
experience is somewhat unique on Hie
ground that his troln was brought to
a standstill by grasshopper*.
Couldn't Appear Because He
Did  Not Have the
Price.
Before the winter term of the Nelson public school begins the new high
school will bo ready for occupation.
At a joint meeting of the school
trustees and a committee of the city
council held last evening at the oflice
of Dr. Arthur the plans prepared by
the architects of the city were submitted for discussion. Each architect
in the competition was permitted to
appear atd explain the details of
their plane and give any information
regarding them desired by the committee. Nine different designs were
submitted for the consideration of the
committee and amidst this ample
choice the committee had some difli-
culty in arriving at a decision. A
portion of those sent in weie too costly and exceeded the appropriation at
the disposal of the board. Consequently, these, while finding much favor
from an architectmal standpoint,could
not be entertained. Others were ruled
out for other reasons, until the choice
was ultimately confined to three.
After some delibeiation one of the
number was given the preference and
although an effort was made lato
last night to discover from the members of the committee the one selected, they were reticent in regartl to
tho matter. But it has since beeu
learned from a leliablo source that
the plan submitted by A. Carrie was
the one whicli found favor with the
meiiiters of the committee. The plan
is well adapted to fill the requirements of the present school demands
and in addition to being well within
the estimate possesses certain features
of ventilation and arrangements for
future enlargement which have given
it the preference. No decision was
arrived at in regard to the nature of
the material to be used in construction, whicli will be decided when the
plans and spe-ilications ure called for
and it is expected that thc successful
competitor will be at onca notified to
proceed with the preparation of the
plans and specifications, which will
he submitted to the department of education for approval when tenders for
the erection of the building will be at
once called tor. lt is expected that
tbe building will be either of lulck
or stone aH that was one of the C0~��
dilions of tlio competition, and the
committee are satisfied that they can
obtain tlie erection of thc building for
the amount at their  disposal.
The case of Rex vs. Pearse came up
for hearing hetoie Judge Form at the
lourt bouse yesterday. The defendant was charged with shop breaking.
The property stolen consisted of an
axe and a saw, which the defondant
claims to have borrowed from tho
plaintiff without any intention of
stealing. Ile.had borrowed it for the
use of the witness Macdonald. Ho
ulaims to have procured tools from the
same plaee many liinos before with
tbe knowledge of the proprietor and
without any charge of theft. Tho
goods thus obtained were intended to
bo returned iu the same maimer as
those be had procured on previous occasions. The judge in rendering a
verdict, while admitting that tho
charge of stealing had not been sufficiently proven to justify a conviction,
said that the practice of taking goods
in that manntr was against the law
and be would release the prisoner on
suspended sentence. A. M. Johnson
appeared foi the plaintiff and S. S.
Taylor for the defendant.
In Ihe matter of tho charge against
W. J. to.vthnr, who was brf light to

NO CONTRACT   VFT.
The Dunsmuir (Iovernment refused to
give to the (ireat .Northern and
Mackenzie ,fc Mann tlie contract to
build the CoastKootenay railway.
although by virtue of their charter
and proceedings under it they were
first on the emend and entitled to
priority of consideration. The same
Government refused to allow them to
tender for the contract, taking pains
in the Loan Ilill to stipulate conditions that effectually barred thee:.
They were shut out. Much ingenuity
as the Government possesses, or was
possible to instil into it, was exercie-
ei witli the design of throwing the
contract to the Canadian 1'aeifle Hail-
way Coinpany. A road operated by the
Great Northern, or in connectiou
with it, would give to Southern liritisli Columbia a large measure of
healthy competition, and this the
Canadian Pacific did not want. As it
held Mr. Dunsmuir aud his Government in the hollow of its bund, It was
an easy matter in this cane to obtain
precisely what it wanted. The Government submitted the legislation
which was to put the Coast-Kootenay
road at the mercy of the Canadian
P-citic, and the Legislature dutifully
passed it. Tho bars wore put up
against competition in railway rates.
This was done by a subservient
G.T.rnment and Legislature, at the
instance of the Canadian Pacific.
Put although    the   Gieat   Northern
was denied the contract, and   in addition the privilege of   tendering for it,
the   Government     promised    that    it
would   make   arrangements    for   tne
building   ot   the   road  as soon   ufter
prorogation   as   possible,   and   would
convene tho Legislature  to   ratify it.
It   was  understood   that   the special
sosssion   for   tbis   purpose   would be
held sometime in   July, certain'y   not
later than   August.    The   summer   is
passing.    We are now well   into July,
and there   is   no   word   yet of a contract.    Is tlie season to be   allowed tu
pass without  anything   being   done'.'
The   n.'oessity for   a  Coast-Kootenay
road   was   recognised  several     years
ago, and has been insisted upon every
year since.    As   long ago a*   18117   the
Legislature   made   piovision     for    n
bonus of S4,ilU<I u nrle   to   aid   in    its
construction,und in tlie sessions of the
two following   years   this  concern in
its   behalf    was     repented.    It     was
considered   of   the utmost Importance
that the Kootenay aud   Vale   district.,
should bu lii-ought into direct railway
communication   with   the Coast,    The
Turner Government had crumps in its
stomach because of   anxiety   over this
matter,  and tho   present   Government
is composed   very    largely   of the mo
terial   of   thnt   one,   und   having   us
Premier ono of its   mom   faithful sup.
porter.   What,   then, is the  explanation of the present Inactivity?
Tlie Great Northern would not be
allowed to built, although it would
givo what the country wants���railway
competition. Are the terms so cure-
fully arranged between the Govern-
ment and tbe Canadian Pacific, in favor of the latter, now found to be
less satisfactory than wus supposed,
and is the   contract   spurned    hy   the
corporation   it   was   Intended to .till
further enrich at. the expense of the
public Intercity U the icsult of the
Government's submission to the Canadian Pacific to be that there is uot
to be   a   Coast-Kootenuy   railway   at
al1? That would satisfy the Canadian
Pacific, no doubt, but it would
hardly satisfy the country, nor
would it redound much to the credit
of the Government's consistency,
With regard to this last, however, the
Government's reputation is so hopelessly shattered that so small a
thing as its consistency will cause
it little anxiety.

"Lament for the Couer d'Alenes,"
and the other "When the Mill Went
Up the Spout." Mrs. Kobinson does
not rank with other poetesses that
might be named, but, unlike some of
them, she makes hereself understood.
For example:
"I followed   Hoyce   to   tbe   Robbers'
Roost,
And watched him there all night.
Then he  sent me to   the   poor-house,
blind,
With manv more, no doubt,
While he wined and dined
On your hard earned cash.
And sent us up the spout.''
She does not like Boyce, whom she
flagellates without mercy. After
reading this "poem," it is not likely
hoyce will like her. She says she is
nearly blind, "tioin a blow dealt her
on the head by Judge Leaty, of Gem,
Idaho," and perhaps it is to obtain
cheap advertising she has sent her
productions to The Miner. We are
glad to ho of service to any one
suffering tinder aflliction. May tbe

The Lc Roi management has a
stout champion in Tbe Colonial Gold-
fields Gazette, which comes to Its defence in a strong leader in its issue of
.lune -Ml. It regards the statement of
its position, issued by the secretary,
as u satisfactory reply to the adverse
criticisms of so many of the London
journals. These did not take thu
pains to Ico'i beyond the lact that
there wore no dividends, which are
generally   regarded   us   the    measure
of ull managements.

"It is estimated that the ore on the
second class dump, against which
the above advance of S!50,000 haB
been made, will, when shipped, realise a net profit of over  $400,00(1.
"With reference to the ore reserves
in the mine, our manager (Mr. Macdonald) stated in October last that
the amount of ore in sight at that
time was, approximately, 1,050,000
tons, valued at ��3,000,000 Arrangements are now being made to gauge
the amount in the mine on the 3(ith
inst., t.e eDd ofthe company's finan-
cial year, when it is anticipated that
the ore reserves will be found to have
increased io ratio to tbe extensive
development work which has taken
place. The situation at the North-
port smelter has, us far as ive are
aware, ia no way changed since our
cable inserted in your issue of the
10th, which was to the effect that one
furnace had been re-started with
non-union labor, and that the others
would be re-started as opportunity
occurred."

An interesting story came to the attention of a Miner representative the
other day, showing that the Kootenays sometimes atlord a cure for
more than depleted health and finances. The hero of it is now a business man in Toronto and was
through on a pleasure trip looking
over the places which had effected
such nn alteration on his life. lie
did not wish his name mentioned,
but Carleton will answer. In the
summer of 18.1, being then at the
impressionable age of 23, a girl to
whom he liud proposed, refused him
and married another man, nnd being
of a romantic turn of mind, Carleton
concluded that life had no more attractions and that a giave in the wilderness, etc., was all he wanted, lie
came west over the C. P, tt. to Golden
and thence to Southern Kast Kootenay, to which a friend in Toronto
had kindly advised bim to go As
lie found to his astonishment that he
was beginning to take an interest in
things   again,   he   laid
pull and he would have been fico,
and at the thought the eold chills
chased themselves up aud down my
back. I concluded that there wasn't
anything nt the cabin I cared much
about anyway, at least not to go over
that trail again with an empty gun
��s it suddenly seemed to have become peopled with all kinds of animal iudieations to my excited fan l.v.
I kept on down to tbe place the prospectors said they would be camping
for a week, nnd finally reached it.
They cheerfully consented to go back
and bring what there was left of the
skin, and the ulaws, and trap for me,
nnd I still more cheerfully handed
over to them the cabin and supplies.
I don't think a happier man ever
���Jived than myself, when I found
myself once more on the train head
ing for a city. That was ten years
ago, and despite a few unpleasant
nightmares when I see that brute

suddenly there eame a roar that made J^2ftoS|^>^lg[a'K���K���,A���,i,���p���.,d.���<^*,���
mo quake and then it appeared to
my dazed eyes as if u section of the
mountain was coming in leaps and
bounds towards me. I could.l't have
moved a step and would have been
a goner but the fearsome object
stopped suddenly. Then I perceived
that it was an immense silver-tip
hear which had been accidentally
caught by one paw. The chain of
the tiap was fastened to a strong
niece of timber which catching
crosswise between two ro3~a had sent,
him tumbling when he had almost
reached roe. In a few seconds I had
regained enough composure to raise
my rille, und pump lead into that bear
just as fast as I could wcrk the lever.
When I had exhausted all my ammunition I 'ceased firing,' and Seeing that the animal was undoubtedly
dead, walked up to examine him
with my heart going like a trip-hammer. A close Inspection revealed that
the terrific strain when the log had
caught, bad caused tbe trap to bito
almost through the paw and ail he
was held by   was the  skin.    Another

**************************
To Keep Out of Norvotis Prostration by
Proper Use of Food.
It is a liiincmable fact that American brain workers tlo not, as a rule,
know how to feed themselves to rebuild the daily loss oecasioned by
active mental effort, This fact,coupled
with the disastrous effects of the nllia-
lids contained in tobacco, coffee aud
whiskey, makes a sure pathway towards nervous prostration.
Tlie remedy is simple enough Km-
ploy tho services of a food expert,
who knows the kind of food required
to rebuild the daily losses in the human body. This can be done by making froo use of Grape-Nuts, the famous breakfast food whicli contains
exactly tlie elemental principles
which have an affinity for ulhuincn
and go directly to rebuild the gray
matter in tile brain, solai plexus and
norve centres throughout tlie body.
Follow your selection of food up witli
a dismissal of coffee, tobacco and
whiskey for fifteen days ami mark tlie
difference in your mental ability,
which means everything to the aver-
ago hustling American, who must
have physical and mental strength 01

CONSTRUCTION STOPPED.
Large Number of Men From Ronning-
ton Falls in Town.
Yesterday a cablegram was received at Ilonliington Falls from England
by the manager ol the construction
works under way to lay off all the
men aud i close down the work. No
reason was given for this action
ny particulars as to how long it
wns for. The message was from Sir
Charles Ross
It is supposed that the cause of this
unfortunate occurrence is the strike
existing at the Rossland camp, and
that the coinpany does not care to ��0
ahead enlarging its plant while matters are in such an uncertain Mate.
Over a hundred of the men employed
arrived in Nelson this evening. The
rail, ay construction work going on in
the Lardeau will probably take most
of them.
