Sunday afternoon from Nelson west*
ward lo Balfour there were camping
parties scattered along the .here at
every creek aud headland where a
white stretch of sand afforded un inviting camping ground.
A large number of business and professional men ol" Nelson look advantage of the shooting season opening
and the two holidays coining together
to enjoy a little of gipsy life without
interfering with their regular pur
siiiis. At Six-Mile creek no less than
live parties, numbering from three to
eight each, landed at the mouth of the
creek and tramped up lo the lakes
after brook trout, Tim wen .er hnd
been so uniformly line and ��� *.iy of iulu
that few who went out tot the two
days bothered to take touts along, and
of all thoso who weut lo the lakes on
Six-Mile oreek there was not a tent
or waterproof covering of any kind
carried up, provisions, fishing lines
and guns,maklug up the luggage.
When evening drew on great (ires
were lit along the shore of the lake,
and all enjoyed immensely the a'
fresco supper, of which trout was a
leading article, with appetites sharpened by exercise in the fresh mountain ail'.
A little after midnight-a fe;v drops
of rain began io awaken tlie light
sleepeis of the various parties who
w?re without covin ing. Muttered
curses were heard on the people that
had persuaded them to go on Mich a
fool trip and there were few who had
not prophesied from the first that it
was going to rain that night. Down
at the lake there was, in many cases,
shekel close at hand, and even at the
worst it was not difficult to turn a
row-boat or canoo upside down and
crawl under it. and go to slcop In
peaceful indifference of wb.it the
weather might do as long as it did not
turn colder.
At the lakes on Six Mile the problem of how to keep dry and warm
was a far more difficult one. Some
knew that there were cabins within a
mile or so, but one glance into the
inky blackness of the night which
veiled the rocky and timber strewn
hillsides was suflicieot to persuade
ally one that without lanterns it
was impossible locate to anything.
It was also recalled how at night the
smallest shower seems as if it would
turn into a deluge. These and similar
lines of reasoning kept up the spirit
of all for awhile, and as the bonfires
blazed up higher and higher, and
everybody realized what a number of
others there wore in the same predicament, songs were sung, and it was
decided that it was nothing to be
caught in a little rain after nil. But
the rain did not sing or shout, it just
kept, coming steadily, fuslei and hard-1
er, and snon the songs of the luck less
campers died down, as they endeavored to rig up any kind of a shelter at
all that would answer. Ily morning
nearlv everyone uud enough of camping,and decided that Nelson was about
as good a place to spend the rest of
the holiday as could he found. An
early breakfast of rainsoaked provisions was made, and outside of a
few enthusiastic spirits who stayed
for a few bonis more and dried themselves before starting, to be thoroughly soaked again going through the
brushwood before the road was reached, most of tl.e campers by noon were
home again, where after an immense
dinner, tbey told of tlie fresh bear
tracks and other signs of game they

settled have not (oine to hand yet, but
from the way in which [lie dispatches
read it is evident that concessions
-.vere made b;, both parties. It is also
apparent thai the company has recognized the trackmen's union and that
the latter bus gained some substantial
advantage. In iho Kootenays both
sides showed themselves reasonable
and fair, while the 1rack"-en eonduct-
d themselves in a law-abiding and
irderly manner, thus trusting to
peaceful and lawful methods to win
that for which tbey were striving. )n
the other band, the local ollieials of

full of difficulties with considerable

COMMENDABLE ACTION.
The Duncan Mines. Limited, has
through purchased by its liquidator
taken back the properties of the Granite Mines, Limited, In exchange for
the indebtedness to it. by the latter
company, Under tbe reconstruction
of the Duncan Mines tbe old company
will hove ample funds to develop the
properties on a comprehensive scale.
Tbe plans include the deepening of
the present workings to 300 feet
further down and possibly a tunnel
which will connect the working's
of tho Poorman mire with thoso of
the Granite. In addition to this as
soon as tlio development has gone
sufficiently far to justify it the intention is to increase the capacity of tlie
mill from 20 to 40 stamps. With those
improvements the property should be
made to yield good prolits to thc
hureholers. There is one feature of
the leconstruction which is most commendable, inasmuch as the stockholders of the Granite mines have an
opportunity to eiiine in and share in
the benefits of the reorganization.
Although there was no legal obligation on the part of the Duncan Minos
directorate to do this still it wns
thought beat to extend the bonelits of
the scheme so as to Include the (Iran*
Ite shareholders. In doing this the
directorate has shown that it is actuated by high motives and recognizes
that morally the shareholders of tbe
Granite should be considered and
their interest conserved. Tlie public,
considerng the fair action of the
directorate, will wish the reconstructed company unqualified success.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
Moyie Leadei : People who nave
been with Anna Morgan, daughter of
I. Pierpoit Morgan, on her western
hunting trip, say she can neither
shoot Blraiglit nor cook a decent
meal. Evidently in spi'e of her
father's genius Anna is just like a lot
of otbei American girls.
A number of conflicting stories have
been told regarding the loss of the
steamer Islander and the behaviour of
the crew on the occasion. As tbe
disaster involved the death of over
forty of the passengers and crew,
besides the .-.inking of a valuable
Steamsbio, tlie (iovernment at Ottawa
has appointed Captain Uauilin, marine
agent at Victoria commissioner to
hold tbe inquiry. Tbis inquiry will
get at all the facts of tho disaster,
and show that some ot the statements
made arc mere romances,
lionds and Mortgages says some of
the richest men in the world are mining king-', many of whom hive grown
powerful through the proper application of originally a moderate capital,
and it is proven that while millions
of dollars have been lost in railroads,
farm mortgages and eastern industrials and building associations, the
American mining industry steadily
advances, making onormons profits
for its supporters, building great
states and cities, and points with
pride to the American possession of
253 mines that have paid in dividends
over 8025,000,000.
llereaftei all Chinese naught crossing' from Canada into the Un ited
States will be deported to their own
conntry, instead of, as heretofore,
sending tbem hack to Canada. This
determination has been airived at by
the American Government owing to
tbe persistence of the Chinese who
ure not discouraged by being sent
hack to Canada, hut keep on trying
until they bave finally gained nn entrance into the lepublio, The sending
of the mougols back to their native
land will involve an expenditure of
from .ISO to 8300 for each, but this
expenditure is lost sight of by those
who desire to see the Exclusion Act
properly enforced,
An invention has recently been
patented in England which mny revolutionize tim printing business. Ily
this each country newspaper may havo

and is described bv an exchange thus:
The duty of making the type ia performed by a   rotary   machine capable

Solomon, in Cupper camp, J'onmlary
country,antl it ifi expected tLai a com-
moiieenic.it will soon be made to ship
oro to the smelter at Greenwood.
The wagon road from a shoit dis-
tant'p abuve tne Morrison up to tbe
King Solomon has boon improved
from a very rough hush road to one of
the lust mining camp roads in the
district, excepting of eou'se the main
stage roads, The owners of tho mine
conel nieii that there was little use
expecting the provincial government
to do this very necessary work,so they
ditl ii themselves, and now they have
a road over which there will not be
any difficulty in hauling the ore they
have arianged to ship to the smelter
It is nated that .1. Vi. Hartlinc has
contracted to haul ahout a thousand
tons of ure to tho railway siding at
the Ueadwood sawmill and that next
month teams will be put on to com-
nionct- hauling. The ore will be
taken thence to the smelter by rail.
The King Solomon ore is well
known as the piettiest copper ore yet
found in the district in quantity and
it is generally believed to be the
richest in copper. lt is claimed that
much of it will run as high as 30 per
cent, copper, but an estimate places
the average value of what is not bf
ing mined at about half that per
oentagu, but this latter is regarded as
a very outiservative estimate indeed.

MUNICIPAL. OWNERSHIP.
Pub
Magistrate Crease Advocates tbe
Ilo Ownership of Utilities.
At the regular meeting of the Socialist Club on Sunday afternoon the
address of the day was delivered by
Magistrate Crease nn tlio subject of
the "City Under Socalism." Then
was a large attendanc and the meeting was one of the best which have
beeu held under the auspices of the
club. Tho speaker's address appealed
strongly to tin- aspirations of th
socialists. The speaker in singling
out the waterworks, electric light,
telephone and street railway system a
the inalienable right of tbo people
which should be conserved " by thc
poople, for tbo people," olearlv indicated that in Iiii opinion these were
only some of tho utilities which lie
thought the people had a perfect right
to demand should ho preserved and
reserved from tho manipulation of
private gain. Referring to the lighting system of Nelson, the speaker expressed his pleasure at the fact the
people owned the franchise, and intimated that while there was a great
amount of natural dissatisfaction
with the system as it was being
handled at tbe present time, claimed
that lime would see great improvements . Referring to tho great water
powor in tbo immediate neighborhood
of Iho city he claimed to have been
one.of the lirst advocates of the city
staking their own water rights at
Bonnington Falls, whereby it could
provide its own power, not only for
lighting purposes but also for furnishing power for manufactories nnd machinery. Nature had provided this
power with splendid " piodigility"
and it was the natural right of the
community. Mr. Crease quoted instances from his own experience and
observation, where the private owner
ship had heen as great a curse to the
community as the reverse had been a
blessing.
Referring to Sir Frank Smith as
the monopoliser of the Toronto Street
Hallway system bo stated that by In
o'clock every day the street inilw-u
of that city had cleared all expenses
and all the tost of the day's earnings
was clear profit, and he added, "it
was no wonder that he died a millionaire." The reason, that in other
places these franchises were monopolised and run :.t an apparent hns,
was because their purchase was a good
investment for subsequent profits.
An interesting discussion followed,
but practically the only criticism
offered was that the speaker had
stopped so short in his programme, on
the principle that if the argument was
so sound in regard to Ihe points
touched on, that n general application
of the same principle would produce
similar result*.
Colonial   Army
peror and Czar to Meet.

Uarde duCorus reg,ments rear herein

and the Czar the S'.hlisische Zeitung's
St. Petersburg correspondent declares
that tho C/.ar has been in autographic
correspondence with tlie Emperor,
