INVESTIGATING
PAPER PRICES
Complaints of Canadian Publishers Being Looked
Into.
r��S3_o0:
Whymper. the Mountain Glim
ber, to Attempt Mount
Asslnlboia.
(SPECIALS TO THE MINER.)
Montreal, May 28.���The investiga-
tlon instituted by the government into
the complaints o* newspaper publishers there concerning the combine of
paper manufacturers to unduly enhance
the price of paper, began this morn-
. ing before Judge Tachereau.
The officers of the Canadian Press
Association were represented by Cup-
tain A. O. F. Macdonald,of the News,
and Vice President II. ,T. Pettypiccc.
of the Forest Free Press. The legal
adviser was John King, Toronto.
None of the members of the Canadian
Paper Manufacturers1 Association
were present.but they were represented by Counsel VV. J. White, IC. C,
and R. II. Mc'libbon, K. C. Judge
Tachereau announced that, the government would bear the cost of witnesses. The inquiry commenced wilh the
examination of II. D. Ross, Ottawa
Journal, and L. J Tartc, La Pattle.
Salient points of evidence were given
by these gentlemen that an organization among paper makers existed by
which prices were increased and to
whom all contracts had to be exhibit-
ed, that each member of this organization had to deposit a sum of money
ranging from (300 to 8500, to be confiscated if they broke any of the rules
it laid down, that this organization
has fixed prices acknowledged to be
much ahead of the actual price of
manufacture, thus unduly increasing
the cost of news and printing paper
contrary to the provisions of section
18 of the customs tariff of 1807, that
there existed an agreement between
American paper makers and the Canadian Paper Makers Association whereby tho former wero not to invade the
Dominion or to interfere with their
prices, and that since the commission
had been formed the mills had reduced their prices and recommended
the allowance of discounts.
Montreal, May -8.���Edward Whymper, known as the champion mountain
climber of the world, will arrive in
Canada shortly. He had boohed to
���ail on the Parisian on her last trip
Which had to be cancelled on account
of the accident. The object of Whymper'a visit is to tackle Assiniboia
mountain in the Rockies,a peak which
mountain climbers have been trying
to reach for three years. The Mater-
horn was first successfully settled by
Whymper. He is the most expert
climber known, and, has written several books on the subject. Whymper
will bring four guides with him.
Besides climbing Mount. Assiniboia
the climbers will prospect for mineral
wealth and it is anticipated thnt
their work will cover three summers.
Banff will be thc base of their operations.
Toronto, May 28.���A flew agree
ment iB to be mado between the management of tho Canadian Pacific Railway and the engineers on the Ontario
and Quebec division. A deputation of
enginecih waited upon II. P. Timmer-
mnn, general superintendent of the
division, today and discussed the proposed changes in the old management.
One matter that is of considerable interest to the engineers of Toronto is
the question of promotion. The recent
splitting np of the division there will
throw some of the engineers out of
the line of promotion, and tbey want
this adjusted,   as it probably will be
No conclusion was arrived at during
thc discussion today, there not being
time to go over all the clauses of tho
agreement. The relations between
the engineers and the company, however, nre of tbe most cordial nature,
and the impression is that the new
agreement will be reached without
any friction. '

Considerable construction work iB
now being undertaken at the Enterprise mine, which at the present time
is affording employment for a large
number of men. A new seventy-ton
Concentrator is being elected, thc
frame work of which Is now completed. The machinery has arrived and
will be placed in position as early as
possible.
In addition to tbe above the company owniug the property are constructing 3,000 feet of road to connect the present road with the mill-
site. Fifty men are being employed
on construction, and development
work Is being proceeded with, requiring the services of about twenty men.
DREDGING ON THOMPSON RIVER-
The machinery for the dredge on
Thompson river, Kamloops, has arrived and is now being installed. On account of difficult transportation facilities it took eight duys to move the
machinery 14 miles. The dredge is
the largest of the kind ever built in
Britisli Columbia and is in charge of
Satchel! Clarke, late of New Zealand,
Owing to i,the difficult'es which have
arisen of various kinds operations will
not in all probability be commenced
until the waters of the Thompson river snBside, the rising of which have
hindered the work. The company
which ha�� this work in hand is known
as the Jamieson Creek Dredging Co,
of which Mr. Bellamy, of Nelson, is
one of the chief promoters.
A. H. KELLY BACK
A. H. Kelly, one of Nelson's old
timers, arrived in the city on Monday
evening after an absence of four
months, which he has spent ia a
'pleasure trip over the Amrican continent. During his absence he has been
in California, and has also visited his
old home in New Brunswick. Although during his tour he has seen
many interesting places and had some
very enjoyable experiences which
have not in any way destroyed his
vitality, yet he intimated his pleasure
of being able to return to his old
stand in the west again. During his
travels he generally found things in a
pretty healthy state, but had not lost
confidence in the future of the province of Biitish Columbia. Asked for
an expression of opinion on mining
matters in general and the lead
bounty in particular he was noncommittal, as he had not gone into
the question sufficiently to be able to
offer an opinion, Mr. Kelly is residing at the Hume hotel and Is largely
interested in mining matters,
BO0UNDARY   PROPERTY BONDED.
Copper Montain Claims Bonded for
Period of   Two Years.
The Copper Queen, Number 0, Roebuck and Roebuck Fraction,situate on
the summit of Copper mountain,Myers
creek district, says the Midway Advance, have been bonded by the owners, Dan and Doe McClungof Midway,
and Wm. Fohsbender, of Myers creek,
to J. W. McBrlde, of Bolster, who Ib
said to be acting for Robert Wood a_d
associates. The price of the bond is
850,000 and extends over a period of
two years.
The above mentioned claims all
have good showings, more especially
the Copper Queen and No. o, which
have had considerable work done on
them. The company that has taken
the bond is of strong financial backing so ihcie is no doubt that shipping
mines will be made of these two
claims.
Copper mountain has the name of
having excellent showings, and the
Copper Qui en and No. 0 are said to
equal anything in the camp in this
respect.
It has not yet been definitely settled
just when development work will be
commenced but it is thought not later
than the latter part   of   next  month,
RESCUED FROM
TERRIBLE FATE
H.
VISIT OF IIARBV MELVILLE.
Harry Melville, R well known mining prospec'or from the Kettle river
district, Iihs been in tho city for a few
days. During his stay in the city it
Miner representative came across his
path with the expectation of procuring a good mining story. But for
some reason or other the wily prospector was not in a very talkative
humor. It was evident that he knew
more than he desired to see set up in
cold type. Although refraining from
going into particulars he in a general
way expressed great confidence in the
future of the Kettle river district, and
although it is not very prominently
before the country since the boom, he
claimed that when transportation
facilities made it possible for capital
to get into the district they had as
good a mining distrct as there was in
British Columbia.
Notwithstanding that they were 47
miles from any railway he was satisfied that the present summer would
show up the mining qualities of that
district as someting more valuable
than many people at present imagined
His visit to the city was on mining
business and ho left for the Kettle
river district last evening by the Kossland train.

MEETING OF ROYAL COMMISSION.
Session to Open at Court House This
Morning.
At 10 o'clock today the Royltl Commission, appointed by the Laurier
government ostensibly for the purpose
of shelving the difficult Chinese labor
qnestion, which was forced upon them
much against their wishes, will convene in tlio court house. Last night's
Rossland train bvonght.the commissioners to the city. The members of
the party are stopping at the Phair
and Hume hotels. There are scvon in
all and among them are the following
gentlemen : D. J. Munn, New Westminster; It. C. Clute, Toronto; A.
Crawford, Toronto; C. Foley, Rossland; Chas. Wilson, Vancouver, and
F. J. Deanc, Kamloops.
It is expected that the commission
will sit for two days only,after whicli
thoy will pbohably proceed to Kaslo
or some other point as the conditions
may require.
The commissioners arc prepared to
receive voluntary evidence on each
side of the question, and have power
to subpoena witneses to attend and
give evidence, a power whicli hitherto
they have not been called upon to exercise. Already a large amount of evidence has been accumulated by the labor organizations of the city which
has for some time been in the possession of the commission, and which
will in all probability he reproduced
at tbe sitting of the commissioners to
day or tomorrow. A. V. Curie, the
sectetary of the Nelson Trade and Labor Council, will act in tho interests
of the labor unions of the city,and all
evidence from every standpoint will he
received and reported to the Dominion
authorities.
After the commissioners have completed their labors in the Kootenays
they will make a tour through Spokane and Portland and hack again to
the coast, where tho counsel for the
Chinese an,i Japanese immigrants will
be given a hearing, and also the
agents of the capitalists us well as the
working men. It is expected that the
commission will last three months
longer at the very least, as they will
proceed to Ottawa after the closo of
their return visit to the coast, where
the soiling of their accummulated
evidence for and against, will bo proceeded with, and will take a considerable time to arrange.
It is not only in story books but
frequently in the real life of Ihe day
thai truth becomes stranger thun fic-
I tion, and the wonder of the friends
of Hugh Nixon is that he is alive today, ufter his hair-raising experience
of yesterday. J. Wcstman, W. J.
Young and Nixon were working on
the dam at the electric powoi house
yesterday, keeping the dam clear of
all obstructions, which were accumulating owing to the freshet caused
by the recent rains and hot weather.
While in the act of navgating a log
down the sluice, his pike staff be.
came entangled with the log in some
way, aud before he knew what had
happened he was thrown into the
water. Standing on the edge of the
sluice ho was washed down the eddy
and was soon speeding down the rolling, rushing cataract,and in the opinion of some standing by, already passing in bis checks. For awhile it was
thought that it was just possible
that he might have been washed on the
inside of the dam but closer investigation icveuled the alarming fact that
ho wus clinging to a beam a few
yards lower down thc rapids. A rescue patty, consisting of William Glover, Jack Shaw, and the above named
persons, was socn on the spot near
whore lie wus hanging between life
and death, The lag to which be
clung like grim death was only about
a foot and a half from the madly
rushing current which swirled aronnd
In wild efforts to carry hiin down the
canyon, where there would not have
been the remotest chance for his life.
Aa it wus the terrible force of the
water held him like in a vise and notwithstanding the fact that his rescues came within reach of him whereby be was enabled to get his anus
around the neck of one of the men, ho
wus as powerless to hold on as they
wore to relieve him. Finally he was
rescued by the assistance of a ropo
which was secured and the unfortunate man was at last dragged to land.
He was taken to bis liouse, which
was fortunately near by, aud Dr. Arthur wus immediately sent for. Beyond being badly bruised the adventure has left him none the woisc,
physically, so fur as can be at present
ascertained. Financially, however,
he is materially the loser, as during
the time he wus immersed he lost 805
in cusli, besides a gold watch, and
some articlos of wearing apparel.
During the excitement of the rescue
Glover and S*iaw came very near
drowning as they were in tlie wati r
up to the neck, and in the roaring,
whirling stream tlio danger of such a
position must havo been extremely
great. When a Miner reporter called
lu learn thc particulars last evening
Nixon was recovering as rapidly as u
man of his advanced years could bu
reasonably expected to do after such
an exciting   und   hairbicudth   escape.

two Italian bishops and a Dutch
bishop.
The Christian natives killed numbered at least 30,000.
WATER STILL RISING.
Water   Mark
Has
Last Year's   High
Already Been Passed.
The water in Cottowood creek is
uow higher than ever, and the Nolson
Elootric company are not at the present time deli dent in water powei.
There is a magnificent waterfall just
above the dam at the power house,
which is testing the dam to its utmost capacity. But unless unlimited
for contingencies arise there is comparatively little fear but that the dam
will stand the strain, and with proper care the power plant is safe. The
water in Cottonwood creek at the
railway track is now higher than It
was before and is sweeping with a
resistless force above the track, und
provides a small army of men with
employment day and night in keeping
the track clear of all obstructions.
Thc water in the luke Is rising again
ut the rate of six inches per day and
is now about six incites above last
year's high water mark, and over
lifteon feet above this year's low
walor mark.

In testifying before the Oriental
Commission, Mr.Stnith Curtis expressed himself as strongly opposed to the
employment of Chinese or Japanese,
whenever whi.e labor can be obtained. We understand his objection to
apply to domestic as well as other employments. Probably we are all nearly of one mind on this point; but why
should a hue and cry be raised
against an employer of Oriental labor,
if no other can be had? Is not Chinese
help better than no help at all?

Hudson's Bay Company.
town is being made attractive. In the
larger cities further east the system
meets with much favor. The Alderman
may be more fortunate in the position
that tbe system is not adapted to a
small place like Nelson. Perhaps it is
not; that is a question on which judgment and experience may find plenty
of scope for employment. But there
is no doubt it has worked well in other places, and has given general satisfaction.
Rumors of considerable moment are
rife in Rossland. It is said that the
control of the Le Roi has passed out
of the hands of the Whitaker Wright
crowd, and that all thc principal Red
Mountain properties are to be consolidated. It is also said that the incipient labor trouble in the Rossland
camp bas been made to play a part in
the deal which has brought about thc
change in the Le Roi ownership. Wo
shall most probably not go far astray
if we discredit this latter, at. least
the others it may be a pleasure to be
lieve.
A Mr Ireland, who lead oft' in the
discussion which followed an address
on Nbrtnweatern Canada by the Rev.
.lohn Miicdougull, of Alberta, at an
afternoon meeting of the Royal Colonial Institute, said he was often astonished at the ignorance of Canada and
things Canadian that was displayed
by so many of tho English people. He
wished that Canadian manufacturers
would stamp every article thoy pro
duce for export with the word "Canada,' lu large letters, und thus bring
the conntry more prominently uudcr
notice. Even that would do little
good. The name is already pretty
well known; where the trouble lies is
that so few take the pains to learn
anything about tlie country. It is
covered with snow and is somewhere
in America, and that is all they
know about it.
The Trail Creek News docs not see
any objection to a lcfinery built, own
ed, and operated by the Canadian Pa
cific Company. To the suggestion of
The Miner that it should at least wait
until it is ascertained that capital
from no moro legitimate source can
be obtained. The News says; "We
fall to sec what more legitimate
source there can he than that which
has already expended nearly one
million dollars in tlie upbuilding and
refining Industry of the Koot. nays. "
No one is Iosr disposed to deny the
fullest credit to the Company for anything it has done to develop this country than The Miner, and it has done
much; but, enterprises outside It."
legitimate sphere should no left to
others as much as possible. If private
capital cannot be raised for the refinery, it will then be in order for the
Company to consider thc matter, If so
Inclined. But we are sure It would
be with great reluctance the (iovernment would pay over those iead bounties to a railway corporation.

could have been desired in his information respecting the working of the
frontage tax system in Eastern cities.
He was told, he said, that it led to
"Incessant and costly litigation,"
and that in mnny instances the system proved so unsatisfactory that it
had to be discarded. This does not
accord with tbe experience of a large
majority who hnve been familiar with
its operation. Tho first large Eastern

the system Is in force and giving excellent satisfaction. Under and by

NEW  BOOKS.
We have two new books from the
Copp, Clark Company, Toronto���The
Helmet of Navarre, a tale of Pans in
1S93, by Bertha Runkle, and Pro
Patria, by Max Pemberton.
We nre the more grateful for the revival of the historical romance iu that
it has given us the Helmet of Navarre,
although there is more of the romantic than tho historical in it. Yet its
chief charactets are historical, and
in so fur as they are introduced to us
the book Is instructive. The romance,
however, is abundant, and excedingly
stirring. The incidents cover a period
of four days, and it is doubtful if
any human being ever experienced a
similar measure of excitement in so
short a time as tho two principal
characters of the book. Miss Runkle
can be said to have caught up the pen
dropped by the elder Dumas, and to
give her heroes as much thrilling adventure as fell to the lot of the Three
Musketecis. It will hardly be said
the book affords much scope for the
Btudy of oharacter, although the chapter describing the first meeting of
Lorance with the Duke of St. Quen-
tcn is a fine bit of work, and bears
evidence of great promise in a writer
who is still in her early twenties.
Pro Patria is the story of that tun��
nol which the French built under the
Channel a year or two ago, with the
object of invading England. True, thei
newspapers hud nothing about it; but
a lucky young officer of the Hussars
accidentally discovered the design.and
at great peril of life frustrated it at
the very moment communication was
completed through to Dover. It is
this officer who tells the story, unit
those who delight to grow breathless
over a book and to enjoy a very
charming bit of love-making which1
runs along with thc great conspiracy;
should take up Pro Patria the first
idle afternoon. A glaring anachronism
occurs, but in his excitement the
reader will care nothing for that.
Ono of the characters is a French officer, whose brother was killed by the
English in Canada. Thut must have
been over a century and a half ago at
least, and it sounds strangely to have
his living brother mentioned in thc
same breath with automobiles.
Both books ure printed in beautiful
type, on fine paper; ore handsomely
bound, and rather profusely illustrated. They uro In the Publishers' best
style, aud that is saying much.

A LUCKY FIND.
What proved to bo a more 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-
titio, which he had lost fifteen years
ago in Arizona, suddonly 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 mado from "The Morse
Pumpkin Flour." None other just as
good.    Insist on "The Morse Brand."

In many instances the Ready-made Clothing of to-day

AN EXPENSIVE MB~8ENG.BR���
Sadie Whltemore, on Luke street,
will have to pay the noal. sum of $:;r,
to the city authorities for having to
be tanght thc difference between the
lire alarm and the messenger alarm on
the Nelson electric messenger system.
YeHter. ay at about an hour and a half
after noon hour, the Lake street lady
required the services of a messenger,
and accordingly rang up the electric
messenger service, and by mistake
rang the Arc alarm, quite uncon-
unions of the mistake until Instead of
a small boy arriving to attend her
commands, the Nelson lire brigade appeared at thc door enquiring the seat
of the flie, etc. The said lady was
more than ever surprised when she
found that instead of having to pay
a bill of 85 cents she will luve to put
up the sum of $25.

several added ones. Resides registering the amount purchased it can he

In an article on church forms The
Boston Transcript says: Presbyterian
congregations in all parts of the country are elaborating their forms, and
the number of vested choirs amorg
thc Lutherans is now so great as to
excite no comment. In New York the
third vested choir has been introduced
into the Methodist churches. The last
one is in Cnlvary, the largest Methodist congregation in New York in
point of numbers,and one of the largest in America. Thc vestments worn
are exactly like those wcrn tiy choristers in Episcopal churches, and there
.are tbe same processional and recessional hymns. The Fourth Piesby-
terian church, New York. Rev. Dr. ~.
Wilbur Chapman, the well known
evangelist pastor, is to introduce a
chancel into ltB auditorium during the
coining summer in order to admit a
boys' choir, and there is taik of putting vestments on ihera.

FOREST FIRES RAGING!.
Serious Conflagrations in New Brunswick and Quebec.
Moncton, N. B., May. 28.���Forest
fin'-, are raging at various points
along the Intercolonial, between Bar-
court and Quebec The weather haB
been very dry, and unless rains soon
fills great damage must insult. At
Harcourt several square miles have already been burned over but as this
section was almost wholly denuded of
forest almost a dozen years ago, there
was little material except blackened
stumps and dead limbs for the fire to
feed upon, and tbe flames aro spreading slowly.
In the vicinity of Barnaby river and
Rngersville the damage is greatest,
and the people are making desperate
efforts to save their property and
houses. In spite of all that could be
done a house and barn near Barnaby
river, owned by Davis Buckley, was
burned to the ground yesterday aud
other places are In such immediate
danger that the people are packing
up their belongings to move at a moment's notice.
Large lots of railway ties and posts
piled along the track were also burned, and the railway authorities were
obliged to move cars from sidings to
save them.
The lire is on both side of them and
all trains are ordered to run through
the burning district with great caution.
