Eleventh  Year
lAELY DAYS
ON THE LAKES
Granges That Twelve Years
Have Brought About
ln Steamers.
Marvelous Progress Made In
Passenger and Freight
Service.
__��� i~
To fully appreciate the conveniences of civilization ono needs to he
without them for a short time. To
th. passenger who travels from the
Coast, through to Nelson, changing at
Arrowhead from a comfortable car to
the sumptuous steamer Rossland,
again to the train from Robson to
Nelson, or from thc east over tin-
Crow's Nest lino by Kootenay Landing, changing to the Moyie there and
soon in equal com'ort whether it he
midwinter or midsummer to picture
what either of these trips would
have meant twelve :>eais ago would
require an effort of the imagination
far beyond ordinary powers. At
present it is but a matter of hours���
hours agreeably spent in watching
the magnificent and diversified scenery, liefore 18S0 to get into the country from either direction there was
but one choice, to come on two legs
or four, and thu seoond was frequently
impossible. One could, leaving Nelson towards tbe west, talre a trail
that used to come out behind where
the smelt*��r now is, and farther on
joined the present Forty-Nino 'rail,
following thiB to Ward's crossing and
on to Robson, then down to where
Trail is now, along the Dewdnoy
trail, finally reaching a stage road at
Mnicns, Washington. This wa the
route the mail came by at Hist, when
. >it came at all. In 1889 a grand improvement was made by the introduction of a steamer on Arrowhead lake,
to ply between Rcvelat"ke, on the
main line of the C.P.R., aud Sproat's
Landing. The " steamer " was a
catamaran, about sixty feet long with
18 foot beam, and was called the
"Dispatch." It had one cylinder,
and owing to an unfortuna'e defect It
was necessary to leave out a couple of
the "buckets" on the paddle so that
when the shaft got near its centre tho
machinery would not suddenly step.
However, it made tbe round trip in
from a week to ten days, and was an
Immense advance on pievious methods
of transportation. Its capacity for
passengers was like that of a street
car, there was always room for one
more Inside, thirty being a good load.
It also brought down live tona of
freight at one time which sounds
small now, but compared with the
carrying capacity of a packhorse
(from one to three hundrod pounds)
,it lepreseutcd an immense saving.
Later in the same year the Marion
yvas brought from Golden to assist in
the work. Then in 1800, during the
construction of the branch from-Robson to Nelson, the Kootonay was
brought tip from Little Dalles, on the
Columbia, and also plied for a short
time until bought up by Mr. Mara's
company. The Lytton wns the next
to be used and was able to handle all
the trafll., whicli was In tho proportion of one carload of flour and supplies to two carloads of whiskey. Ily
the following summer the Lytton had
to take tv.o barges In tow in addition,
to meet the requirements. One barge
was usually left off at Robson with
fi-tight for Nelson, tbo other being
taken on down to Trail. The Kootenay and Nakusp wero also put Into
commission, all being tilled to their
fu'lest capaolty, both these, steamers
having been taken over by the C. P.
R. Thc Columbia and Trail were
then acquired. The Columbia was
burned in August of 18(15, and some
time after the Trail and tho Kootenay
followed suit, tbe former at Robson
and the latter at Arrowhead. The
present steamer Kootenay is the second of the name. The Trail was built,
for freight, and had very little accommodation for passengers. The Illicit'
lawaet is a small boat to which tho
machinery of the old "Dispatch'' was
transferred. It Is at present used -in
transferring bctwecon Arrowhead and
Thompson's Landing. The Rossland
and the Minto wore the latest'additions to tho llect on the Arrow lakes.
JThe first steamer used on Kootenay
lake,  for  passenger   tratlic   was   the
Galena, which ran between Nelson
and llonner's Feriy. This web followed by the Nelson, built in 1801.
At present the C P. R. have in commission on Kootenay lake three passenger steamers, the Moyi". Nelson
and Kokanee, three tugs, and three
fifteen-car barges, with a fouith one
nearly completed.
Tbe Great Northern system have at
present three steamers on Kootenay
lake, the Inleinaional, built in 1897
at Kaslo, thc Alberta, and the Kaslo.
This system employs on its Kootenay
lake serice altogether about fi'ty men.
The 0. P. R. have, under the jurisdiction of the Nelson oflice, at present
10 steamers five tugs and 21 barges.
The barge now being built at the
Nelson shipyards will be the twenty-
second. Of these steamers, one, the
Aberdeen, is ou Okanogan lake, and
tne Slocan and tug Sandon on Slocan
hike. Altogether this department
employ, including the men employed
at the the shipyards at Nelson and
Nakusp, -75 men.
The comparison between the old
catamaian slowly wobbling down the
Arrow lakes to the landing, to let off
passengers for Nelson, who could
either lide a horse or walk, according
to their taste and finances, tlio long
steep, miles between the two places,
and tho present day comfortable
steamers and trains is interesting.
The comparison is about the same as
between the little camp that Nelson
then wns and thc handsome, twentieth century oity tnat it now is.
RICH MINES ON
BRITISH SOIL
���    SUCCESSFUL PERFORMANCE.
Charles Erin Verner Company Play
to Another Hig House.
Mr. Verner has a hold on the theatre goers of Nelson. Expectation
took them out in large numbers on
Monday night and the enjoyable per-
fomance given them was responsible
for an equally large turn out last
evening when the public know a first
class ontertaiinent would he provided
"Arrah Na Pogue" was the piece
and It was, if anything, better than
the production of the previous night,
although it waB evident that some of
those taking part were not thoroughly familiar with tbuir parts. Hut
there was no resisting the humor and
pathos of Mr. Verner, who is a star
of the first magnitude, when depicting the vagaries of the true Irish
character. It is his refined and delicate humur that wins his audiences
and he does not descend to acrobatic
contortions to evoiie a laugh. Miss
Ida Maloon, the little Irish lady who
pleased thc audience of the previous
evening with her dancing, played thc
tltlo role and a petite and sweet Arrah
she made. It was a heavy part cleverly protravi'd. Mib3 Hishup sustained
the favorable imf esiion made on
Monday evening. Miss Belmour, a.',
the motherly old Irish woman with
the ever ready Irish tong aie was capital.
Mr. Ilelmour, as the villian, improves on acquaintance. He is very
clever and one of the best in tbe line
ever seen in Nelson. Mr. Maekaye as
Col. O'Grady was a ve.-y strong character and made the most of his part.
Mr. Oblien did not have a groat deal
to do but as the severe English Colonel he wns excellent. Mi. Oiaham is
clever em ugh hut he did not seem to
be familiar with his part. It was
only the second time he played it.
He has a pleailng stage presence
which would carry him through a
more familiar part to advantage The
smaller parts wore well taken, especially that of the valet by Mr.Crosby.
It was Mr. Venice's Intention to put
on an English play tonight but the
demand was so great for another Irish
production that he'dial bowed to the
popular will and will produce "The
Shaoghraun," a favorite Irish comedy-drama in which every member of
the company is well caste. Miss Carter, who so capably took thc leading
part on Monday night but who was
not caste last night will have a prominent part this evening. It will be
the last opportunity to see Mr. Verner
aud his company and the house will
no doubt.be tilled as It deserves to be.

A meeting of the trades procession

(SPECIAL TO THU MINKIl.)
Vancouver, 1!. C, June 11.��� The
most intense feeling has been engendered in Chilliwack over tbe r��cent
claim jumping on the boundary line
in the Mount-llaker mining district.
There are but two hotels in the place
and the jumpers and the jumped have
had to cat und sleep and glare at
ench       other at   close     quarters
through the long wot days since the
American survey parly announced
that the boundary line was 3,48(1 feet
south of the observation post which
bad been reckoned as the boundary
line for three years. The correct line
pushes the rich Anderson properties
and tbe Seattle owned. Golden Chariot
and Gold Star half way over the line.
As soon as these facts were known
claim jumpeva sallied forth from Chilliwack and restaked nil the mineral
lands close to tlie line on both sides
and deliberately squatted on the
boundary, starting a town which
they called lioundary City. Mr. Sa-
viers, superintendent of the Golden
Chariot and Gold Star, split iu half
hy the new s'lrvey, has received letters from niembeisof the Provincial
Legslatu-'e and from E. V. Hodwell,
who give it as their opinion that Unoriginal lOaiators of thc properties
now declared in liritisli Columbia,
but staked as United States territory,
willbe protected by Canada, as in tho
similar cases of Rossland and Atlin
that they will be only required to
register tbeir claims over again and
work them under British Columbia
laws. All worked bas been stopped on
the boundary and it is suggested that
it is to the interest of Hritish Columbia to have the matter settlod, as
large sums of money appropriated to
work the mines now split in halves
have been withdrawn until it has
been learned what llriti-h Columbia
is going to do about it. The district
is reported very rich, the Lone .lack
mine on the Washington side have n
millicn tons of ore, partly free milling, in sight. This mine was recently
sold for 8350,000 cash. The only difll-
culty is that of access and in time
this difficulty.will he overcome. The
large amount of mineral lands pushed
into British territory will help trade-
in Chilliwack, for supplies inuBt come
from there.
Various Chiefs Agree to Take
Not Less Than 15c. for
Sockeyes.
and Vancouver the spectators consisted only of the townspeople,numbering
perhaps 100 ail told. The show was
\ I l~i I purely religious, and there was no
attempt to make money out of it. bit
one of tbe most unique scenes on the
ground in tho day time were the nuin-
flshermen's Union Delegate
Rounds Up the Indians.
Ai PIE SOCIAL���
The local corps of the Salvation
army havo arranged to have a pie
social at the barracks tomorrow evening, which will bo the best and last
of an interesting series of events of
this kind which have been held during the last few weeks. The canvass
for the self-denial week Is about completed and the result will be declared
at the meeting tomorrow evening
when the officers nope to be iu a position to stale that they have reached
their target which is SI,000. If the
target u reached the success of thc
building cnteipiise in the matter of
the erection of a new barracks will bo
assured, and some definite statement
in regard to the matter will be made
at the meeting.
AN INVOLUNTARY RATH���
A mun, whose name could not be
ascertained, had a close call at thc
lake front last evening. About the
time that tbo Moyie was pulling out,
between 10 nnd 11 o'clock, tbe unlucky man stepped between the wharf
and the float and fell into the water.
A man named McNeill and two otheis
were also standing on the wharf and
at ol co came to his rescue They had
not very long to wait for his appearance and had no difficulty in hiinigng
111 in to land as the water Is only a
short distance from tho level of tho
wharf.
Winnipeg, June 11,���The building

(SPF.MAIaS TO THB MINER.)
Vancouver, June 11.���Capt. Auder
son, delegate from thc Fishermen's
union, took advaniage of the fact that
t,lioo Indians were camped at Chilliwack to go into the camp and stiffen
their backs against the cannery men.
Anderson was the principal figure in
the last, strike and it is feared he
will he the principal figure in a
strike this year, if he continues his
present course. The following is a
copy of the agreement:
To Whom it May Concern,���We, the
undersigned, chiefs of the Province of
liritisli Columbia, of tho districts of
New Wosteminster, Sechelt , Squam-
ish, and other places, do agiee not to
fish sockeye salmon for less than 15
cents a fish the present season, and
we will not go into the canneries
until the price is settled with the
Fishermens' unions.

chiefs present June 7th, 1001.
The canners say 15 cents with a
big run of fish as expeoled would
simply be an impossibility. It would
keep them ont of the market. They
offer 12 for July and 10 when the big
iu_ comeB.     	
Vancouver, June 11.���The religious
celebration by the Roman Catholic
Indians on Satmday night following
the passion play was far more impressive from a speelator's point of
view than the play Itself. The whole
night was set aside for praise and
prayer to the Virgin Mary, Many
more Indians had come In during the
day and when the procesBion started
to circle the Indian village which is
a mile in ciroumferance, there were
four thousand men, women and children and babes in arms in thc procession. Most of the adults curried
lanterns. Chants, prayers and hymns
wero sung by the multitude during
thu whole march which lasted one
hour. The night was very dark but
the great space between .the Indian
cottages and the village tents was
brilliantly illuminated with lanterns
and during the match Roman candles
and skyrockets filled the black heavens with shooting stars, while the
weird chanting was punctuated by the
reverbrating boom of cannon in tin:
adjacent mountains, the Hash lighting
up the hills for a brief moment and
disclosing the whlto smoke rolling
from the mountain side. Two enormous altars, beautifully decorated by
the Indians, wee tho objective points
of tho procession. The Indians massed in front of these altars, whore
prayers were offered up to the Virgin,
Ilisbop Dontenwell officiating. Several hundred dollars' worth of fireworks
were used by the Indians most effectively. After the grand ceremonial
eight bunds entertained their brethren to a sacied concert which lasted
far into the night. One of the best
bands was composed by Indian hoys
ranging from 5 to 11 years old.
Strange to say witli the exception of
a score of ladies and gentlemen who
j runic from  Seattle, Spokane,   Tacoma
ber of camera people taking shots at
the tableaux, _Bishop Dontenwell and
tho clergy present, were most kind in
this respect. Indian police had instructions from the police not to interfere with the visitors aud as a result magnificent views were taken of
all the tableaux, the perlonners even
posing in some instances for tlie camera in the midst of the ceremDny. All
the picture men say that the marvel of
the performance was how those 100
Indians could hold themselves stiff for
two hours in a tableau. White men
could not do it.

NEARLY A   SENSATION���
Yesterday afternoon two well-dressed young men went staggering down
Haker street to-vaid the station, considerably under the influence of
liquor. As they neared tho bridge
across Cottonwood cock, being on tin-
north side of the road, the lurched to
the very edge of the steep embankment. Por about ten feet thoy made
their way along the brink, sevcta
times assuming such a perilous angle
that it seemed as if nothing could
sa-7C them from taking a header into
the creek. With a drunken man's
luck, however, they neogliated this
in safety, to collide violently with a
telegraph pole on the other side of tlie
bridge. Fiom there to the station
they ran into eveything possible,
finally subsiding over thu step going
up on to the platform.

There is trouble brewing among the

teroplated strike would have on th*'
western division and Its affivt upon
tho local craft. It waB, however,
more easily said thnn done, and although tho railway men admit that
fully ninety per cent, of thc track'

no knowledge of the agitation, and'
also declined to state whether they

C. P. R. man in another department,
he claimed thnt while he had not noticed the announcement of - the contemplated strike as reported In the
Sunday issue of The Minor and disclaimed any knowledge of the trouble,
he was ot the Opinion that It would
not affect the western trackmen or
train men. as tne trouble is only of'
a local character,being confined to the..
cast. The tumble will not extend beyond Fort William unless it assumes
an unexpected size, but at the present
time thu prospects are decidedly In

aud no trouble arising at all.

THE COA.ST-KGOTENAY QUESTION
"C. P. P.. v>. The People of British
Columbia." is the title of a brochure
that has just been issued from a Victoria printing press, and is now being
circulated throughout the Province
The subject matter is the Coaist-Koote-
uay railway, and the little work purports to give a "history of the struggle to obtaiu a competitive railway
from tlie Coast to the Interior, and
how tbe enterprise has been blocked
by the Dnnsmuir Government." Tbe
title is slightly misleading, as it it,
apt to give the impression that the
Canadian Pacific Company are engaged
in some sort of war with the people of
British Columbia, and are doing their
utmost to defeat them. The Railway
Company have no desire to iLjure the
people of the Province, for it is to
their interest to see Uiem prosperous
and contented and therefore good customers. But they do not scruple to get
the better of the people when they
have some direct object of their own
to serve, and the purpose of the brochure referred to is to show bow tbey
are doing thiB in connection with the
Coast-Kootenay road and with the assistance of the Dunsmuir Government.
The reasons of the publication, ns
given in tlie book itself, are as follows: (1). "To lay before the people
of British Columbia an accurate and
connected statement of the facts relating to tlie legislation in the matter of
the Coast-Kootenay Railway. (2). To
show (a) that the DnnsSiulr's Government have, in tlie legislation
which they have brought down, disregarded the almost unanimous expression of public opinion throughout
the Province, and have not punormed
thc pledges made by the Ministers to
their constituents in the general election which returned them t'' power;
(b) that the Loan Act which they
have passed Is beyond all question detrimental to the interests of the Province generally and to the Coast cities
in pnrtipular; (c) tbat it discloses an
undue preference for thu Canadian
Pacific Railway Company. (8), And
to warn the public of the very dangerous situation whioh is now created
by the active Interference of the Canadian Paeilic Railway in. and the undoubted Influence whicli that corporation possesses over, Legislative
affairs in liiltish Columiba.''
Tlio first comment suggested by a
perusal of this statement of the case
is that it keeps well within the limits
of fair and honorable controversy, and
the second that it is put with a clearness and ability that are absolutely
convincing. Thc writer proves all he
net out to do, a fact which should give
rise to the question whether it is altogether well tit its Province should be
tied to the wheels of the Canadian
Pacific chariot.
for mining, for smelting and for
transportation right within the borders of our own Province." But under
tbe present law the mine owners
would have to pay a tax on every dollar of this output, although nearly all
of it went to the enrichment of others
and therefoie to the production of
other sources of taxation. What
brilliant political economists, to devise such a policy !

THE CITY
MAXIM PRACTICE-
Thero will be a Maxim gun practise
on June 19th, one week from today.
The range hns not yet been detcrmi_ed
but will be decided on the icturn of
Captain Macllonoll who has left -he
city for a few days.
SOME PORK���
The prizes for the Dominion Day
���ports, from outside points art; still
pouring in. The latest promise to
arrive is one Rex ham and one Rex
side of bacon from thc Cudahy Packing Co., Nebraska. The originator of
the suggestion which has been so in-
Btinmciit.il in producing this result is
Percy Chapman, who is manifesting
such a fatherly inteicst in the buby
show contest.
SCHOOL TEAMS-
Tlio entrance examinations of the
public Hchool will commence on the
34th. Inspector Wilson will be the
examiner aud it is not expected that
the newly appointed inspector will
assume the charge of the work until
after the summer vacation. Mr.
���Stewart will take up his residence in
the city some time before the commencement of the fall term. The
public school examinations will commence in the different departments
next week and the report of the result
will be published immediately they
are closed.
NO HOSE REEL TEAM���
The fire laddies have decided not to
enter tho hose team contest in the
Dominion Day Bports as several of the
members of the brigade are anxious
to be reinstated in the amateur ranks,
The hose reel contest would be
strictly a professional uvent and
would debar the competitors from entering the other contests. In addition
the appropriation for that part of the
celebration must be necessarily small
and totally inadequate for such a eon-
test, so as not to make it worth their
while to arrange for the contest and
by leaving out that event it will make
prizes for tin other events better
worth trying for.
LACROSSE PROSPECTS���
The lacrosse boys aro busy getting
ready for the coming celebration
when they expect to meet the lacrosse
teams from Grand Forks or Phoenix
as both teams are anxious to meet, the
Nelson players on that day. A party
Interested in the success of the loca
team observed to a Miuer reporter
yesterday that unless the Nelson boys
get out and practice a little more
regularly there is very little chance
of them making very much of a game,
aud if those who attend the meetings
for organization would supplement
their enthusiasm in a more practical
manner by turning out to practice it
would be more encouraging to the
players and more beneficial to the
team.
DISTANCE LENT ENCHANTMENT���
A gentleman from an Eastern city
told a tale of a mining investment
yesterday that would have been comical if it were not for the bad effects
such happenings have pn eastern investors. This gentleman who don not
wish his name mentioned, with a
friend, purchased quite a block of
roost beautifully lithographed stoik
in a "mine" the ore of which by assay (according to the printed prospectus) ran 850 in gold, $.8 in silver
and some minor values in copper.
The owner of the stock had a prospec
tus on which was printed a map showing the location which was "nearly
midway between Nelson, Slocan,
Ainsworth and Sandon, nnd only
twelve miles from thc Nelson smelter,
to which it will bo a down haul all
the way." The map is a wonder,
from it rne unacquainted with the
district would imagine thut the leading mines of Slocan and Nelson district were hardly a day's walk apart.
No mention is made of the mountain
ranges. The gentleman in question
came to Nelson expecting to drive out
to the property from here, and wus
considerably suiprised at the result
of his Investigations. He returns east
today to Hnd the agent, if possible.

"I would cough nearly all night
long," writes Mrs. Chas. Applegate.

HALL PARK IILAZE-
About half past eleven yesterday the
fire brigade were called out to extinguish a fire whi:h had started in thc
baseball grounds. It was reported
that one of the Aldermen who had
voted at tlie-ouncll meeting the night
before for the suppression of Sunday
ball games was responsible for the
blaze but as the four anti-Sunday
ball-game-aldermen deny any knowledge of the cause and us it goes without saying that the Mayor and the
other Ah'eruicn were no party to it,
the conflagration had to be tracd to
some other source. It appears'that
the alarm was rung from the Nelson
Saw at Planing mills and when the
brigade arrived at the scene of the
conflagration it was discovered that
it had originated from a small bonfire
which some small boys had started
under the grand stand in tlie baseball
grounds, and which had got beyond
their control. They then became
frightened and raised an alarm which
was heard at the planing mill. Extinguishing the blaze was but the
work of ^a minute, but the joy of returning to the lire hall, through the
rain was anything but   easy or pleas

The Place to Get It La  Prom Selected
Food-
It is good to know th. kind of food
those with weak stomachs and heart--
can get along with for when a man or
womfcr! i-�� a little bei^--' par. an easih
digested food is the thing tbat goe*
right to the spot.
A man in Ki.'ksviile. Mo., tells
bow he got out of trouble by using
Grape-Jints Food He says. 'M;
trouble was intense snffeiing in th,
stomach. It was called agstraigia.
but no medicine gave any permanent
relief. In June hist year I began to
grow much vtor-e in e^ery respect.
I was terribly eon-tipated and the
stomach pair.s were severe. I ran
down until I weighed only 130 pounds.
I had to give up mj business for nj\
nerves wee complete); unstrung am:
I could not sleep more than two or
three hours during the nigbt ami
that onlv by snatches during a lull ir,
the pain I tried a.-no-t every kind
of food, but finally was put on Grape
Nuts and in a little wihle I began tc
slet-p better nights, my Itreogtb gradually came back, and I gained in
weight rapidly until a little while
��j{0 I weighed 16$ pounds and have
been a well man for months with
never a touch of  tbe cid trouble.
My bowels are perte.-t. the nervous
trouble has gone. You can realise I
appreciate the value of GrapeNut<
Food. Don't pab'ish my name but you
can give it in private correspondence
and I will ta'.'e pleasure in answering
the letters.''
Tbis is another evidence of tbe
practical -*orth of Grape-Nuts Food
in cases of weak stomach and bad digestion. It is the most scientifically
made food in existence and contains
absolutely nothing but selected parts
of the field grains so cooked and prepared as to admit of almost immediate
digestion and assimilation, carrying
with it the elements furnhhed by the
All Wise Creator 'cr rebuilding the
nervous system, the soft part of the
brain and the solar plexus. When
one gets from food what the body
Deeds, it is easy to get well and keep
well.
