A GREAT
ring- BATTLE
McGovern Defeats Dave Sullivan After a Desperate
Fight.
Issue Was In  Doubt Until
Finishing Blow Was
Struck.
Louisville, Feb. 22.���Terry Mc-
Oovem defeated Dave Sullivan tonight
in the arena of the Southern Athletic
club after as desperate a fight aB was

tap of the gong until tbe end both boys
���vont at it hammer and tongs nearly every second both men working
away with all tho strength they
possessed. There has selaom been
teen a battle where tho issne was
more in doubt. In une round it would
be Sullliavn's and in the next Me-
(lovern's. McGovern, knowing that
the fight meant his position in the
front ranks as a fighter, was after bis
man every seoond. In the majority of
the rounds be was on tbe aggressive
and Sullivan was forced to do wore
defensive work than bis opponent. He
put up a wonderful fight, however,
was game to the core and lost tbe
tight more through a blunder of bis
own than because be was knocked
out. When tho finish came, howcvci,
he was groggy and going fast. The

FLAMES GUT OFF
MEANS OF ESCAPE
New York Armory Fire Spreads to the Park
Avenue Hotel and Fifteen Persons
Lose Their Lives.
Lights Went Out and Five Hundred Guests
Struggle for Life Amid Smoke
and Darkness.
New York, Feb. 22.���For the third
time since New Year's day, Park
avenue, tbis citv, was the scene of Iosb
of human life. First was the collision
in the New York Central tunnel on
50th street and Park avenue; the
second came in the dynamite explosion on thu Bapid Transit subway on
41st, and the third, today, was a fire
which started In the 71st regiment
armory at 33rd street and then spread
to tbe l'��rk avenue wbere 15 persons
were killed and many injured. It
was the worst hotel fire since tbe
Windsor was destroyed.
The fire was first seen about -.30 in
tbe morning in the armory and In a
remarkably short space of time tbat
building was aflame frum end to end.
The firemen made their way through
the streets deep with slush as best
they could and did all possible to confine the fire to the armory, but after
they had been at work nearly an hour
the discovery was made that the hotel
was on fire. The hotel was crowded
witb guests who had oome to attend
the festivities to be given in honor of
Prince Henrv. More than 500 persons
were in tho house. The fire was confined principally to the fifth and sixth
floors near the elevator and air   shaft.
At about the time thc hotel was
found to bo on fire the lights went
out and the corridors were filled with
smoke. The guests, unable to find
their way through the darkened hallways, jumped from the windows or
ran directly into the flame swept portions of the building. It is thia fact
whieh accounts for the 'arge loss of
life, although the hotel was not
destroyed.
The   fire   in   the armory started  on
the third iloor on the 32nd street side
where there was a tier of rooms occupied by different companies of the
regiment. Within Hve minutes the
whole structure was beyond saving
and ten minutes later the roof fell in
with a terrific crash. There was no
one in the armory at the tlmo except
a janitor and his family. They escaped by going through a scuttle hole in
the roof and thence along the battlements on the 33rd stroet side to safety
on the roofs of the houses to the east.
This passage was attended by muoh
danger owing to the ice covered roofs.
Six alarms were turned in for fire,
but in spite of the quick response the
armory was soon doomed to destruction. The prevailing gale made it
impossible to check the flames. Several hundred pounds of ammunition
stored in the tower of the armory,
detouated in a series of minor explosions, partially wrecking tho portion
of the walls near which It was stored.
This added terror and caused fear of
greater explosions to those who were
fighting the flames.
It was not until nearly 3 o'clock
lhat flames were discovered in the
Park avenue hotel directly across
from the _g armory. Manager Reed
of the hotel had been on tne rcof
watching the fire in the armory witb
guests from the hotel. He had
descended to the first floor and was
standing, talking to a guest when a
burst ol flame came up through the
elevator shaft. ImmediatelyJie ordered
hiB men to go through the hotel to
give the alarm. The lights amost im-
medately went out and the hotel corridors   were   in darkness.   The   flames
went to bis cornor.
Round 11.���McGovern rushed, putting a left to the ribs. Sullivan put a
right to body. Sullivan put right to
body and McGovern put left on Sullivan's bad eye. They clinohed and
Sullivan got in an upper cut on the
jaw. McGovern staggered Sullivan
with right on neck and floored him
with a left on jaw. The referee
stopped fight and wiped tbe rosin
from tbe gloves of both men. McGovern put right on Sullivan'b damaged ear, bis left on jaw and sent him
reeling with a right swing to the jaw.
Sullivan landed a straight left on
jaw, but got a left swing oii neck in
return. McGovern put a vicious right
to Sullivan's jaw staggering him. As
the round closed McGovern swung
heavily with right on Sullivan's jaw.
Sullivan was very tired at end of the
round.
Round 12.���MoGovern swung wildly
with right and missed. McGovern
pounded Sullivan's bad ear with
right. They clinched and McGovern hit
the ear again. Sullivan backed around
the ring. McGovern followed closely,
attempting to land on Sullivan's ear,
but Sullivan blocked every blow. McGovern landed loft on Sullivan's jaw,
and wrestled bim to the ropes. McGovern put straight left on Sullivan's
mouth and got straight left from
Sullivan. Sullivan put left hook to
jaw. A scries of mix ups lollowed
the men being broken repeatedly by
referee. Sullivan uppercut with right
and got a bad left on jaw at the finish
of the round.
Round 18.���McGovern rushed.putting
left to body. McGovern put left to
nose and landed a series of rights and
lefts on jaw, punishing with two
swings to body. MrGovern put right
to body and Sullivan put straight left
to face. Sullivan uppercut McGovern
with light and tbe mon clinched. McUovern put right to nose and rigbt to
body.    Sullivan pnt left to ribs. Both
men missed right and left swings and
McGovern put right to jaw. Sullivan
began fighting on the defensive. Sullivan put right hook to jaw and received right swing on mouth. McGovern put hard right to ear and they
clinched and were wrestling at the
close. Both were tired and were slow
thougbout the round.
Rounu 14.���Sullivan got left jah at
McGovern's chin following with a
straight loft to mouth twice in succession. McGovern put left hook on tbe
face and a clinch followed. Sullivan
put left to body and MoGovern slipped
and fell to his knees as he tried to
come in on Sullivan. Ho was up in
an instant, however. Sullivan pnt a
light left on mouth and McGovern
drove right into ribs. Sullivan put
le't straight on nose and followed it
with right and left swings and MoGovern tried to counter. McGovern
put hard right on Sullivan's ear,
bringing blood in streams. McGovern
put his -ight and left to jaw folowing
by a storm of blows to eai and neck
and jaw that made Sullivan hang on
for deal lite. During the round
Sharkey coached Sullivan audibly and
Referee Fitzsimmons shouted at him
"Keep still there Thomas."
Round 15.���MoGovern missed a left
swing for body and received left on
neck. McGovern rushed, but was
blocked and Sullivan clinched. McGovern rusbed again, putting right to
jaw and backing Sullivan to the
ropes. Sol li von put two lefts to face,
but they were weak and lacked steam,
McGovern put loft and right to face
staggering Sullivan badly. McGovern
planted two lefts and a right on thu
jaw, sending Sullivan half aiorss the
ring. Sullivan was very tired and
holding on. McGovern knocked Sullivan down lor tho count. Sullivan
was not knocked out completely and
could have risen had he tried. Fitz-
Blmmcusn counted nine and Sullivan
rose partly to his feet. As he did so
McGovern started at him and ho Mink
back without straightening up. The
refeiee then called ton aud declared
McGovern the winner. Sullivan began
to argue but Fit/, took him by the
shoulder and pushing hlni towards his
cornor said it was all over and tbat
Sullivan had lost.,
leaped up through the elevator shaft
and seemed to congrgegato around the
fifth and sixth lloorj, filling the halls j
with dense smoke and making exit I
by means of the stairways almost impossible. Manager Reed lan up to
the fourth floor andj there entered tho
elevator whieh was descending. He
alighted at thu flrst floor and soon
ufter the elevator was a wreck.
Various opinions were given as to
tho origin of the flie in thc hotel. The
manager claims it was of incendiary
origin. Others hold tbat the tiro
originated from sparks from tho burning armory building swept by the
wind in the direction of tho hotel.
The idea of incendiary origin is
scouted by guests of the hotel and by
Fire Chief Crocker. Another theory
is that the fire started on tho fifth and
sixth floors and thus resulted in the
damage to those floors more tban to
any other portion of the building.
The flames mounted rapidly and the
lire extinguishers made little impression. The guests on the fifth and
sixth floors had been aroused and
those who had not Inst their heads
started for the stairways olad only in
wrappers and some with only sheets
thrown ovor them. Scores of people
wero taken from the windows of the
third,fourth aud fifth floors of the house
by fireman and by police, many of
the rescued being made hysterical
from fright and terror. At the windows on tho Park avenue side of the
hotel appeared many persons at different places.
A Mrs. Charlotte Bennett und ner
husband, of Alabama, stiod on the
fifth floor on a ledge directly over thu
portico and main entrance of tho
hotel. Mrs. Bennett, thinking that
no one was going to rescue her,
struggled from her husband's grasp
and shouted that she was going to
jump. The firemen gathered in a
circle below and stretched out their
arms. She wrenched herself from her
husband's grasp and flung herself
headlong out uf the window whilo the
flames bad reached the window behind her and had almost enveloped
her. She was killed. Her husband
rushed back mtc the hall and made
his escape.
Colonel Burdett, after making a
desperate attempt t > save his life,
met death in a shocking manner. His
skull was split open and he was
found shortly after 0 o'clock lying ln
the court yard within the hotel. Be
bad fallen six stories. Colonell Burdett was a guest on the sixth floor of
the hotel. Soon after the alarm of fire
reached bim, and escape was cut off.
He dragged the mattress from his bed
and dropped it to the roof ot an extension ovc the hotel dining room
three stories below. Then by tying
the sheets together be made a rope
and secured it to the window. His
object was to land on thu mattress and
thus break his fall. He miscalculated
the distance and fell to the court.
One of the saddest Incidents of tbe
fire was the death of Mrs Salome
Foster, the "Tombs angel" who for
15 years has dene service in bebalf of
female prisoners ln the Tombs and
other city prisons. Mrs. Foster was
the widow of John W. Foster and had
lived for the last fivo years at the
Park avenue hotel. Her income which
was at one time considered large was
for the most part expended upon the
deserving poor.
Frederick R. Heed, manager of the
hotel, said: The minute the fire
started in the hotel I summoned every
available man and sent tbem through
the halls tu give warning. I cannot
see how any one could have failed to
have been aroused by tbe bells that
were rung from the office. I went up
stairs and got my wife wbo was on thu
fourth floor and descended with her to
the street in safety. Then 1 went to
the roof and when I found that the
flames were becoming dangerous 1
desoended for my own safety. Thc
fire unquestionably Parted In some
way in the bottom of the elevator
shaft. I believe that thc fire was ot
incendiary origin and in no way contingent on the fire in the armory
building.
Mr. Roed was himself burned about
the face and neck and after he bad
been attended by an ambulance surgeon directed affairs in person.
Fire Chief Crocker said : I believe
thut the fire in tlio hotel was separate
and distinct from that whieh destroyed the annul y and thnt the hotel did
not catch fire from any sparks that
came from tho annory. The fire originated in thu basement nnd spread
through the elevator shaft to the
upper floors. The fact that the hotel
was practically Oro proot wns responsible for the fact tbat a greater con-
, flagration was uvurted.

A MONOPOLY IMPOSSIBLE.
The papers favorable to the absorption by an ally of the Canadian
Pacific railway of the 50,000 acres of
coal lands in East Kootenay held in
reserve by the government as a hostage and for the protection of the
people prate a great deal about their
boing a monopoly in eoke und coal.
Such a thing is impossible Jas there
aro coal areas to the uast and south of
tho holdings ol the Crow's Nest Pass
company which exceed in size, it
said, by far the land held by that
company. In several instances these
areas aro being developed on a com
prehensive scale. Per instance, thc
company which is operating at Frank
owns about nine miles of ooal land
along the Crow's Nest railway. The
company has developed its property
by ono level from which 300 tons of
coal is now being taken out each day
Another level will bu ready for the
extraction of coal in six weeks and
from this it is anticipated that 500
additional tens each day enn be mined.
Tills will make a total of 800 tons
per day. The company has let a con
tract for 250 coke ovens and these
should be finished so lhat somo coke
can he put to use within the next few
months, and all should be_HnishvdJand
turning out coke before the snow
begins to fall.
The Fishbournc-Prnctor syndicate at
Hlairmore has; its proporty so well
developed that with the expenditure of
$10,000 for rniprovemunts, including
about a quarter of a milo of railway
traok, and some development work, the
mine would yield easily from 500 to
800 tons per day. The seams there are
25 feet wide and in some places even
wider.
At another point an English syndicate is developing some conl properties
and intends soon to huve a spur extended to its workings, a distance of
seven miles from the Crow's Nest railway tracks.
There is considerable coal land In
tho vicinity of these properties that
can be purehused for a reusonalbo
figure. To the south of thu Crow's
Nest Pass an.1 immediately north of
the international boundary line.is the
Kootenay Pusb cuul busin, where there
are large areas of coal lands. These
coal fields can be reaohed by a spur to
the cast from the Crow's Nest Southern railway
It must bo eonsidared, too, that the
fuel produced in tho Crow's Nest Pass
is not tlie only coal and coke
iu tho province. In 1900 according to tho report of the minister of
mines the Vancouver Island collieries
made n groes output of 1,383,370 tons
of ooal,of which 47,353 tons wero used
for coko making, producing 111,234
tons cf coke. Of the product of thu
Vancouver collieries 900,219 tons of
coal and 12,703 tons of coke were
exported.
We understand that even under
present condiitons tho coke ovens at
Fernie and Michel are not run to tlieir
full capacity und that the Crow's Nest
Pass Coal company has in its banks
a surplus of about 3.000 tons and that
it is prepared aud would be pleased
for udditionul orders for from 25u to
300 tons of coke pur day. The capacity of the ovens at Fernie is about 28
carloads of coko per day and the demand from Rritish Columbia for this
cole is about ten carloads a day.
There was a temporary shortage at one
establishment but this v im'it result^of
a failure to make satisfactory financial
arrangements, .lust as soon us the
details were arranged as to finances
the shortage at this particular establishment ended.
Under the circumstances with tbo
Crow's Neat Pass Coal company producing nearly two uud a half tunes as
much coal and eoke us can be marketed nt home, with the Frank establishment outputting 300 tons a dny und
within a short time nOO tons a day,

There however, the..price is higher
than it is in the Crow's Nest Pass. We
have boen informed by a gentleman
connected with ono of the Pugot
Sound smelters that coke theie costs
$5 per ton at the ovens. Tho organs
of the Canadian Pacific have nothing
to say about the high price of fuel at
the coast, possibly, becunse there is
not 50,000 acres of coal lands there
that tlie C.P.R. is anxious to secure
for an allied corporation.
SHOULD INTERFERE.
The Yukon and White Pass railway
has been brought to timo by the
Laurier government and has reduced
its freight rates. Tllis company be-
oamo arrogant with its power in having the'shortost and quickest route to
the Yukon and charged whatever its
fancy dictated. Thejrates were so high
that freightB were rushed over the
long water route via St.Michaels after
navigation opened andjkept for that
route after it closed. The excessive
charges over the Yukon and White
Pass railway discouraged shipments
via the Canadian Pacific railway. The
result was that the traffio was driven
to American ports and to American
vessel*. Through the influence of the
C.P.R. and others complaints were
lodged at Ottawa and the reBult was
that tho rates were lowered. The
government for this action deserves
the commendation of the people of
Canada us it waa a move in thc direction of diverting trndo from America
to Canada.
The Canadian Pacific should now be
taken in hand by tho government.
That road is cliarging too much in the
Kootoanys lor the haulage of ore and
fuel. Tbis is a matter which the government might with advantage to the
people take up and rectify. The boards
of trade of Nelson, Greenwood, nnd
Grand Forks might pass resolutions
recommending tho Associated boards
of trado to pass a resolution requesting the government at Ottawa to have
the freights lowered. This is a matter which is serious and should bo
looked into.

Tbe renewed activity in railway

On preferential trade Mr. Seddon,
tho premier of New Zealand, Btnnd

proposes that tho colonies shall grant
a rebate or drawback on all the British manufactured goods brought in by
British ships, the Imperial authorities
,'ranting a similar rebate on colonial
products upon whieh duties are now
ohargoable at home. Further, it would
ho wise to nnposo duties on foreign
products now free, the colonies and
the Mother Country being exempt.
This plan, says Mr. Seddon, will
strengthen the solidity of the empire.
We do not notice that Piemler Seddon
proposes preference by tho oolonies,

It there is anything you requlrB.aslt
for  it  In    b- ���eliKun of the Miner. Nelson   Daily Miner, Sunday February 23, 1902
WELL WORTH
THE EFFORT
Tourist   Association   Would
Bring Many Travellers
to Nelson.
No District Offers Such Excellent Attractions to
Sportsmen.
Tbe article that appeared in The
Miner regarding the formation oi a
Tourists' association here is meeting
witn general approval, as all see the
benefits tbat would be derived from
the establishment of such an organization. Each summer sees a large number of tourists go through to the coast
by the main line who could easily bo
persuaded to visit the Kootenays,making Nelson their headquarters while
enjoying the fishing and shooting to
be found in every direction.
In visiting Nelson, besides the attractions mentioned, the tourists
wonld have an opportunity to visit
mining camps and other industries
connected with mining, a subject
which to the average tourist is most
fascinating. From the city trips can
be taken to visit Bonnington Falls, the
glacier at Twin Lakes on the Molly
(libson road, nnd numerous other
beauty spots in all directions, while
at the same time enj lying first class
hotel accommodations in the city.
For sportsmen tne oity presents
espcecial attractions as they not only
can get all supplies at most moderate
price?, but if they wish to bring their
families along Nelson offers ideal
headquarters, as within a day's trip
all the choicest hunting regions of the
Kootenays may be reached. With the
completion of the Nelson-Granite road
the city has also obtained one of tbe
few attractions it heretofore lacked,
namely, a road giving a long practically level stretoh for seven or eiifht
miles, with magnificent scenery in
view all the time, and on which those
fond of driving or riding are afforded
every opportunity for enjoyment. This
road is to be extended to Bonningtou
Falls, when the drive will be one that
can not be beaten anywhere in the
proviuce.
George Ncelands when asked regarding his opinion of tbe value ot such
an association, said that he thought it
a decidedly good move. The starting
of this association would be sure to
arouse an interest in game protection
and prevent the ruthless slaughter that
is being carried on of many kinds of
game now. The game laws of tho
province he regards as at present entirely inadequate, and tbe only way to
have them improved and then enforced
is by showing the people what a valuable asset rte game is. With proper
game protection the game would
rapidly increase as there is nowhere
on the continent where nature has
provided each safe retreats for all
species as in the Kootenays. With
good game laws well enforced and the
resources properly advertised each
year wonld see an increasing number
of sportsmen visiting the eity,not only
from the east alone but also irom
Britain and the continent.
James tiilker tnought tbe movement
an exceedingly good one and hoped it
could be carried out successfully. To
secure ' our proper share of the tourist
tiade it is necessary to properly advertise the attractions to be found in the
district, and tbe proposed tourists
association seemed about the best way
that this could be done.
Charles Hillyer was pleased to hear
of the plan and thought it a move in
the right dirootion. Nelson had good
hotels, and accommodations and first
class shooting and fishing could be
found nearby. By the formation of a
tourists' association giving the visitor all the information be desired in
planning his trip, keeping a list of
guides, camps, stopping places and
snch details on hand and in other
ways helping to make it a desirable
place for sportsmen or tourists to viBit
the city and distriot.must neccessarily
derive great benefit.
J. Fred Hume, of the Hume hotel,
has given the matter considerable
thought and he has reached the conclusion that a tourists' association
would do a great deal of good in
bringing people to the Kootenays.
There are few places he said in which
there is better fishing tban in the
vicinity of Nelson, but tbe objects of
tho assccation need not be oontined to
the immediate surroundings of this
city. At one time the C.P. R. had
built shacks near Robson which those
wishing to enjoy the fishing conld
rent and they had usually been occupied almost continuously. Of recent
years these had fallen out of mind.
During past yearc there have been
many wbo came for the fishing
alone and many others who being lu
the place spend a day or two additional to have some sport. If accom
modation were provided and the facts
regarding the opportunities for enjoyment made know there would be many
more. There would be eventully men
who would qualify themselves lor
guides and then when a man came
who wanted to shoot a moose, a cariboo or a bear, these guides conld take
him to a plaoe where ho was likoly to
get one. He was sure that the information disseminated would add much
tc the business done in the oity.
He would also havo the game laws
enforced to prevent the needless
slaughter of game and the collection
of shooting licenses looked after. In
New Brunswick the government had
recognized tho good work the associations wore doing and tbe increase in
receipts from the shooting licenses to
the extent of making a grant to eacb
of the associations so that now tbe
members expended none of their own
money. Ue believed that the government here wonld take the matter up
in the same way. He was thorouglhy
in accord with anything that might be
done in tho direction indicated and
hoped that soon a meeting would be
called to take practical steps along tbe
lines indicated.
(1. A. Hunter, who is quite an
enthusiastic sportsman, expressed himself thoroughly in acoord with tbe
suggestion of a tourist association and
pointed out that ho had no doubt but
that in time, with proper advertising,
there would be a demand for many
cottage along the lake for occupancy
during the summer months and there
wonld be a great number of persons
who could ne attracted to the dis
trict. The establishment of the association would lead to better protection
of the game of the province. At present there are many who shoot deer or
pheasant at any season of the year
justifying themselves, if aqcused of
breaking tbe game laws, by saying
that under their free miner's license
they are entitled to shoot as many
deer or game birds as they thought fit.
This was not the intention of the law
and means should be taken to stop
such oonduct. In the Northwest there
is a license fee charged sportsmen and
the development of the opportunities
of the province would bring a great
deal of money to these parts.
E. fhair, of the Phair hotel, spoke
of the number of people from Spoakne
and elsewhere who come to Nelson
and vicinity for fli-hing. Be believed
that this number could be increased
to a great extent particularly by those
from Spokane and the south of tbe
line. He bad been informed that with
making special provision for the
amusement of the Spokane people a
great many would prefer the excellent
opportunitea for Kiting and fishing
bere to those on Loon lake. If houses
were built along the lake they would
be occupied for most of the summer.
Tne possibilities from tbe fishing conld
be developed to a great extent and
would bring much money into the
oity.

A force of 15 men ia employed in
the North Star mine in East
Kootenay.
In the lead tapped by the long
tunnel in the Last Chance the pay-
streak is improving.
Work on the Sullivan mine will be
resumed as soon as the smelter at
Marysville is completed.
The last of the Payne concentrator
has been delivered un the new site
and the work of putting tbe plant in
position is being crowded.
Work on the EBtolla property in
East Kootenay,continue! to be pushed
and the management hepe to begin
shipping sometime during the coming
summer; a shoot of ore in the property is four feet wide and of good
grade.
The development work on the St.
Eugene at Moyie continues to make
good progress. The working force has
been increased and the impression is
prevalent tbat it is to be further
addod to. The company ia waiting
till lead reaches ��13 per ton in London before it will start up its concentrator and rcsumo shipments of concent rates.
Mr. Gintzberger says the Montlor
mine never looked better than at
present. They aro now upraising
from 4 to 3 tunnel, 117 feet. They
are up about 75 feet in a solid body of
good ore all the distance, giving them
a large body in sight. The mine has

section of tne vein they encounter
very strong stringers of good ore,
showing the presonce of a large body
close by. As tbe ore can be loaded
from the tunnel into the cars, avoiding rewinding and all packing ex-
penses.it will not requre a high grade
ore to wake a profitable mine, though
this promises to be as good grade as
the average of the camp.
The new placer mining oompany
who are now engaged in exploiting
the deep diggings on Wild Horse
creek, are now washing the gravel as
it comes from the tnnnel, which is
now in over 80 feet, says the Fort
Steele Prospector. The gravel prospects well in gold, in panning coarse
gold bas been taken from the pan,
several pieces trombone to two dollars
have been found. Tbe blue gravel
through which the tunnel ls being run
contains good pay, and indications
are tbat as soon as tbe bedrook in tbe
old channel 18 reached large quantities
ot the yellow metal will be found.
During the post year the ground just
below the workings of the new company, has been worked successfully,
the gold taken out was coarse, and
nuggets of eight and ten dollars were
common. There still remains a vast
quantity of gravel unwashed, which
will take years nf hard work to
exhaust.

THE CITY
Joe Dowson   leaves thiB morning on
a trip to Collingwood, Ont.    ; _^,
: The steamer International yesterday
brought in 40 tons of ltambler-Cariboo
ore for thc Everett smeltor.
Miss G. I). Sexton, demonstrator for
the I.aVida and \V.    U.    Corset  com
pany, is stopping at the   Hume.     She
is   making   Kerr   and Co.'s store her
headquarters while hore.
The Nelson Gun club will hold a
meeting in the Hume hotel on Monday
evening to re-urganize for tlie coming
season. All interested in trap shooting are invited to attend,
Alesandro Hartlett, the Italian who
had a rib broken and sustained other
injuries iu a fall of rock at the quarry
tw��o miles west of the city on Friday
is progressing  favorably.
Practically all the ice that is needed
for the coming summer has been cut
at Mirror lake and laid up in ice
bouses. The crop this year was good
although the season was a very short
one.
A deck hand on tho International
while running out the gang plank on
Fri'-ay at the C.P.R. wharf slipped
and went overboaid head first. The
water was deep where he fell in but
with the aid of a boathook he was
fished out.
With tbo opening of the trout fish
ing season only a few weeks ahead
some ol the local fishermen are already
getting their lines in shape. The
closed seasjn for trout in British
Columbia commences on October 15th
and lasts till March 1th.
The steamer Kaslo will not be plac
ed on the rnn between Nelson and
Kaslo yet for another two weeks, as it
was found necessary to send to Toronto for part of the cylinder heads
that wero blown out. Tho International is taikng her rnn.
The work of enclosing Cottonwood
creek in a wooden flume is being
rapidly pushed forward. Tho creek
has been diverted ut a point a little
below the Baker street bridge and
now finds an outlet to tlie east of the
C.P.R. wharf while the permanent
channel is being put in shape.
The committee of tho Nelsou Boat
club is already looixng after arrange
mens for the regatta to be held here
next summer. The Winnipeg club haB
written that it will send a crew to
compete if it does not send a crew to
England. It ia more than likely that
te clob njll be represented at
Nelaon.
FRESH AND STRONG
Food That Bonds You Along
I "I found a food at last that I could
work on and that would keep mo fresh
and strong. I have been a school
teachor for eleven years, and every
year toward the last have felt ra ore or
less worn out, aud have been bothered
particularly with my stomach and
serious constipation.
Last Jeur I used (Irape-Nuts regu-
lalry at botli mornijg and evening
meals and the result was really wonderful. I have been entirely cured of
the troubles spoken of, and don't
know what it is to take a dose of
physic any more. The old nervousness
and sleeplessness have gone. No more
do I lie awake nights until my brain
is in a whirl. Now I sleep all night
long like a healthy child.
I was tbe only teacher out of fourteen, in our public school who did
not miss a dny nnfaccuunt of nekness
during the last session. I havo beeu
able to do more hard studying than
ever before, and took up the teachers'
state reading work, completed the
course and passed a .successful exann-
n-ition at the last institute.
(.rape Nuts in my case has proved
the truth of the assertion that it is a
brain and nerve builder, I would
especially recommend it for tired,
over-worked school teachers, or any
other brain worker." Name given by
I'ostum Co., Battle Creek, Mich.
It is far wiser to build up health
and strength naturally with food than
to cratch nlong on some kind of medicine and let the disease finally do its
work.

Although the remaining ice on the

number of boys took advantage of the
frost of Friday night hardening it to
enjoy a game of hockey in the cone
between the city what and Hale's

Messrs. J. Rae. F. J. Bradley,
and
3. H. Fox, arrived on the -row's Nest
boat yesterday on their way back after
tbeir trip to Winnipeg. The other
curlers from Nelson have not yet ar

Above the pictures hang a number of

A PERMANENT EXHIBIT.
Board of Horticulture Is Maintaining
One at Vancouver,
Thomas Cunningham, Vancouver,
provincial fruit inspector, is in tho
oity from Vancouver, Mr. Cunningham is a pioneer of 42 years standing
and came here to the sessions of the
Orange Orand Lodge. The board of
horticulture, he says, is greatly im-
piessed with the pissibilties of this
section for fruit growing and intends
to devote considerable attention to it,
Mr. Cunningham will visit the vicinity of Nelson later in the season to inspect the orchards. The board nas organized a permanent exhibition of the
fruit, vegetables and cereals at Vancouver for the province. It is the intention to add minerals to the exhibit.
Tbe idea in maintaining this exhibit
in Vancouver is that it can be shown
to those passing through there from
nearly all partB of the world. Some
aro seeking places in which to Bettle
and when they see wb at British
Columbia can produce in the way of
cereals, fruits and vegetables, and
what its mineral possibilities are they
sometimes decide to remain. All possible information concerning vacant
and, aud land for sale is furnished
them. Last year, through the instrumentality of the board of horticulture,
a numbei wore induced to locate on
farms in British Columbia. Those who
have fruits,vegetables, grains, grasses
or specimens, which they think would
be of service to the exhibit can forward them free ot cost to Vancouver.
All that is necessary ia to box them
and the buard pays the express
charges.
Until further notice the steamer
Kokanee will only make a trip to
Lardo once a week on Thursdays.

FATHER FAT'S LAST LETTER.
Editor Miner,���I have this morning
received a letter from Father Pat's
brother, Arthur W. Irwin, of Newtown, Mt. Kennedy, Iro., an extrac
from whicb will doubtless interest
many of your readers:
"My brother started for noine sometime about Christmas. On December
16th he wrote me 'Say, I'm on a holi
day and I'll be home if 1 can make it
bnt how or when 1 know not, this
side up with care!'
"He never reached home. He was
taken to a hospital in Montreal, the
Hotel Dieu, with both his feet completely frozen. They thought to save
his feet but suddenly toxemia set in
and ho died on Jan. 13th, having been
nine days in hospital. To the last he
was cheerful and happy trying to
hide the pain ho was suffering, and
charmed all by his cheery, kindly
good humor. Kev. Edmund Wood,
rector of Church of St. John tho Evangelist, claimed his body and buried
it."
I need hardly point out that; this
last sentence shows how nnloun-Jed
was the stutemont made some little
time ago tbat Father Pat bad joined
the Roman Communion ;  had be  done

CAUSE OF FALLING HAIR.
Dandruff,   Which is a Germ Disease-
Kill the Germ.
Falling hair is caused by dandriuff,
which is a germ disease. The germ in
burrowing into the root of ;the hair,
where it destroys the vitality of the
hair, causing the hair to fall out, digs
up the cuticle in little scales, called
dandruff or scurf. You can't stop the
falling hair without curing the dand-
luff, and vou can't cure the dandruff
witliut killing the dandruff germ.
" Destroy the cause, you remove the
effect." Neworo's Herpicide is the
only hair proparatior. tbat kills the
dandruff grem. Herpicide is also a
delightful hair dressing.
