Nelson,   British  Columbia, Tuesday,   March 25, 1902
Eleventh   Year
WILL BUILD
A NEW LINE
MacKenzle and Mann to Parallel the   Nanaimo
Railway.
Members of Opposition Are
Reported Ready to
Secede.
(SPI50IAI, TO THU', MINER.)
Victoria, March 24,���The opposition
onucussed on tho Renistribution bill
this morning. It is understood it was
considered lairly satisfactory although
the representation was held to be too
big.
Mayor Hayward has received a
reply to a letter to Andrew Carnegie
in which he ofters to give (50,000 to a
public library here provided the eity
provides $5,000 yearly for maintenance.
In the house this aiternoon Hon. W.
C. Wells said that fresn arrangements
bad been made with MacKenzle and
Mann wheroby they got an independent charter to build from Victoria
instead of buying the B. and N., the
contract to he ready, he said, for
presentation to the house tomorrow.
Nearly all afternoon was spent in
debating redistribution The opposition admit the measure is generally
fair although claiming that it gives
undue represen taton east of the Cascades, and attacking as n gerrymander
the ridings of Albetni and Uevelstoko.
Hon. Jos, Martin pronounces it an
admirable bill.
Victoria, March 21.���Very littlo opposition waB shown in the legislature
this afternoon to the redistribution
bill whioh increased the membership
in the local bouse to 42 mombers. lint
the opposition promised to introduco
some amendments in committee.
There is a report in well informed
circles that several members of the
opposition have decided to join the
government forces in the house
It was announced in the legislature
today that Mr. Waddell.tbo bridge engineer, of Kansas, wbo supplied the
plans for the bridge aerosB the Fraser
river at New Westminster, was on his
way to Victoria,to award tho contraot
for the substructure. It is estimated
that the whole bridge will cost
$750,000.
It is stated that in view of the fact
that the American shareholders in the
E. and N. railway will not agree to
sell the road without the big land
grant which is owned by the company. MacEenzie and Mann, who
were negotiating for the purchase of
the road to form the island section of
the Canada Northern, hive decided to
build an independent line between
Victoria and Nanaimo. They will,
however, take over the charter for the
railway from the Northern terminus
of the E. and N. rail way to the north
end of the island The contract between the provincial government and
the firm for the building of the
Canada Northern through British
Columbia has been about settled. As
soon as it is ratified MacKenzie and
Mann will commence building from
the coast to connect with the line
coming west, which is now built to
Prince Albert. It is also expected
tbat the government will shortly
make an announcement in oonnection
with the construction of tho Victoria,
Vancouver and Eastern railway which
is to run from tbe coast to the
Boundary district of British Columbia
and ultimately to Rossland.
Whon ho took charge there had been
an inelino shaft following the vein
sunk for 45 feet. At the depth of 25
feet the stringers of ore wbich composed the surface showing, united into
a more compact vein. This hue been
followed to the depth of 45 feet and
then tin shaft was made a vertical
one and had beeu continued 34 feet
further. Mr. Roberts' flrst work was
to drive a tunnel to catch this ore at
ceptb, which he did. After driving
the tuonel 198 feet he oame into 14
foet of concentrating ore,then the tunnel passed through three feet of solid
shipping ore and continuing there
was 14 fuet of ooncentrating ore on
the other side, making in all a vein
of 31 feet.
An uprise following the vein was
then started and after being carried
103 feet came through to the incline
above thus showing a proven vein ot
solid ore tlree feet in width aud 12li
feet in depth, besides a body of concentrating ore 28 feet wide and of the
sumo depth. The tunnel was ctn-
tinued for exploratory purposes 25
feet further making a total of 250 feet
in all.
The second work undertaken was to
catch the vein on the Blue Joe claim
which adjoins the Continental and
belongs to the company. It was down
a ravine 3,000 feet distant that the
tunnel was commenced, and after
belug run for 200 feet it encountered
the vein at a depth of 750 feet where
it is of practically the same size and
of the same quality as above,the three
feet of solid ore continuing. This ore
carried a value of $C0 to the ton and
already six car loads has been shipped
and 200 tons more is on the dump.
The company is now conslderng the
advisability of building an aerial
tramway for four miles and from that
to the Koolenay river, a distance of
14 miles,an electric railway, for which
water power can be procured to gener
ate the electricity, and the erection ol
a concentrator, Mr. Roberts expects
that these steps will be decided in the
affirmative. With the excellent price
obtained for lead in the United States
the ore vieids good profits and with
the immense budies in tbe mine the
propsrty is now demonstrated to be
one of first magnitude.

Boer Leaders   Expected to

CITY ASKED
TO PAY LOSS
CONTINENTAL MINE.
Now Shows Three Feet  of  Solid  Ore
and 28 Feet of Concentrating.
Capt. W. Roberts, who lias been at
tho Continental mine, Idaho,as superintendent, returned on Saturday night
to spend a few days at home awaiting
further instructions from tbe head
office of the eompay owning the mine,
a general meeting of which was being
held yesterday.
It was on the report of Mr. Roberti
that his friends in Duluth invested in
the property and the development done
under his superinteudency demonstrates the accuracy of Mb estimate of
its value. The Continental is, he
says, now the biggest silver-lead mine
that he has seen outside of Leadville
Cplo.
TO RMSE THE ISLANDER.
SirtusB Hope of Seattle is Going to
Make the Attempt,
Victoria, March 24.���Capt. J. Q.
Cox, British Columbia's agent for
Lloyds, Loudon, has closed a contract
wUh Sirtuss Hope, of Seattle, for the
raising of the steamer Islander and
the bringing of her to Victoria or
some other Canadian port.
The Islander.it will be remenbered,
was lost at the entrance to Lynn
canal, on tbe night of August 16 of
last year.
Whether any of her boilers exploded
is problematical. Treasure that hns
been variously estimated at from
$150,000 to 8275,000 wont down with
the steamer and so far no attempt has
been made to recover any of it.
Where tbe steamer sank theie is a
depth of water of upwardb of 40
fathoms. According to the agreement
with Capt. Cox, Sirtuss Hope agrees
to start work within Go days, and is to
receive 75 per cant of the value of the
hull when raised and will also have
a claim for salvage and get the gold.
The Islander lies at a depth of water
where divers using the diving gear
cannot work.
The steamer has a registered tonnage of 480 tons. Her original cost
was upwards of $200,000,so that as she
lies witb treasure and all on board
she represents a loss of nearly half a
million. Since tho vessel sank very
little wreckage of a substantial
character has come to tbo surface.
SMELTER FOR SANDuN.
J. M. Harris, president and general
manager of the Recc Mining Co., is
in the city from Sandon. He reports
that Sandon is much pleased over the
prospect of the erection of a Vuban
smelter by Mr. Ryan and associates,
as it will enable the miners to market
ore ot a low grade, which hitherto
they were compelled to leave on thc
dumps. The concentrator which the
Payne is building is about completed
and should soon be ready for operation. The electric drills which were
installed in the Payne several months
since are giving good satisfaction.
The Payne, he says, is developing in
fhEi olass shape and the general outlook in the Slocan is promising.
METAL QUOTATIONS.
London, March 24.���Lead ��11 7s, Od.
New   York,    March 24.���Close���Bai
silver 53 7-8 e; Mexican dollars 48 1-4.
J Copper    dull,   Lead  quiet.
Dewet. Botha  and  Schalk-
burger Allowed to Hold
Council.
London, March 25.���The Daily
Chronicle tllis morning asserts that an
armistice bas been arranged pending
tiie duration of Schalkburger mission
to General Dewet and that offensive
operations against Dewet aud Botha
will be suspended, also tbat these two
generals have agreed honorably to
observe the armistice aud to refrain
from'operations until the return of
the envoys to the Boer lines.
It is believed, continues the Daily
Chronicle, that the envoys, after acquainting Botna with tne result of
their mission, will again conler with
Lord Kitchener although no second
conference with Lord Kitchener has
been arranged.
In a despatch from Pretoria made
public tonight, Lord Kitchener gives
the usual woekly report of oaptures
but does not mention the Schalk-
burger incident.
EMISSARIES WERE SENT.
Boer    European   Committee  Said   to
Have Advised   Settlement.
Amsterdam, March 24.���It is believed in Boer circles here that tho move
of acting President Schalkburger is
the result of a communication fiom
the Boer representatives in Europe. A
former member of the Transvaal government said tonight: After thu exchange ot the Dutch-English notes, a
conference was called for February.
This conference was attended by Mr.
Kruger, Dr. Leyds and the delegates,
and it was decided to send six emissaries to South Afrioa by different
routes, with despatches for Steyn and
Sohalaburger, giving them a detailed
account of thu situation. One of these
agents ought to have arrived about
this time. Documents lately received
from Schalkburger indicated that peace
terms had been reoently discussed by
the leaders In South Africa but the
leaders declared they could not accept
anything less than the terms demanded at Middleburg. by General
Botha, on February 28, 1001, and
especially the point of complete amnesty for rebels, because the greater
part of the commands actually in arms
are composed of Cape insurgents.
The fact that the Boers iu the field
are inclined to compromise their de-
mauds for absolute independence,
continued the speaker, seems tr be
indicated by the plan Schalkburger
has outlined for the government of
industrial centres. This consists of a
Uritish board of administration to
proportionate Boer representation.

ACTION FOR DAMAGES.
Suit Arising From   the Merger  of tbe
Telephone Companies.
Oeorgina L.Davey, of Victoria,who
onus $20,000 shores of paid up stock in
the Columbia Telephone and Telegraph Co., which has been merged in
the Veinon and Nelson Telephone
Company,has commeced action against
tho Royal Bank of Canada, The
Columbia Telephone and Telegraph
company, tho Vornon and Nelson
Telephone company, G. C. Hoge,
Nelsou, H. 0. Hannington, Grand
Corks; II. G. S. Heisterman and R.
K. Houlgate, of Vancouver; G. A.
Bould and G. R. McKay. The names
are those of the directors of the
Columbia Telephone and Telegraph
company. The compainant alleges
tnat the Royal Bank of Canada, which
hold a large claim againBt the company and the directors of the Bald
company wrongfully conspired with
the Vernon   and   Nelsou   coirpany   to
cquire the assots of the Columbia
Telephone and Telegraph company,
to destroy its oxohanges, dismantle
the polos and plant and thus render
the stock valueless. She further
alleges that she has wrongfully been
refused inspection of the minutes of
the company and tbe registration of
her shares.
At the meeting of tho city council
last ovening only four members were
present, the fortnightly meetiug having been evidently too hard to remember. Those present were Aid. Irving,
Selous, Drew and Morrison. After
waiting half an hour for the other
members of the council to put ia an
appearance, Aid.Selous was appointed
to the chair.
After the reading of the minutes of
tho previous mouting the tunders for
the supply of drugs for the city were
read. Three had been received but
after reading a few of the prices
quoted it was decided that it would
be hetter to refer the matter to the
medical health officer to report on,
which wus accordingly done on tho
motion of Aid. Irving aud Morrison.
E. A. Crease and Kied Irvine then
appeared before the council on behalf
of the public library to ask for the
usual city grant. Aid Morrison asked
if it was contemplated joining the
library with tbo Y.M.C.A.
Mr. Crease said that at a meeting
of the library it had been deoided that
this should not be done, the library
to be kept as a separate institution.
During the year 3,840 volumes had
been issued and 23,005 visitors had
been to the reading room.
' Aid. Irving thought it would be a
good idea to have the council represented on tbe board. The mayor was
an cx-ollicio member, but be thought
it would be a good idea to have a
couple of aldeimon also on the board:
This tho delegates staled would be
agreeable to the board.
Aid. Morrison moved, seconded by
Aid. Irving, that $250 be paid to tbe
library board forthwith, ana $'!50 six
months later, being the amount of the
grant last year.
The repoit of the finance committee
was read recommending Hie payment
of the usual accounts,and also making
a number of recommendations. The
recommedations were taken clause by
clause. The first was that $500 be
paid to the Nelson Boat club towards
holding the regatta in July. Aid.
Morrison suggosted that the names
of Aid. Selous and A. H. Buchanan he
added, as those to wnom tbe money
would be paid to represent.the city in
tbe matter, this was done and the
clause passed. Clause 2. That tenders
be called for the buiial of pemons to
bo but ied at the expense of the oity.
Clause 8, That a temporary bylaw for
levying a road tax be prepared.
Clause 4. That thc license of the Nolson Opera House bo reduced to $100.
The report was then received and
adopted.
The following communications were
read; From W. S. Gore, deputy commissioner of lands and works, stating
that ho had received the letter oi the
city coucil asking for tho setting of
an early date to hoar the claim of the
city for the piecu of land beside
Kootenay river for a power station,
and Btating that as soon as the stress
of legislative business would permit
that he would set a date.
From J. Munroe, stating that he
would be unable to accept tho
position of city foieman.    Filed.
From F. V!. Swannell announcing
that Aldermen Drew and Scanlan had
been unanimously elected members oi
the hospital board.   Filed.
From II. Johnson and J. Green,
applying for tho position of caretaker
to the new city hall.    Filed,
From the property owners on
Hendryx Btreet, lu tho locality affected, asking for a side walk on the west
side of Hendryx stroet between Mill
and Latimer streets. Referred to
board of works. From the residents
on tbe west end of Victoria street,
asking for electrio light service. This
had already been attended to but
petition was referred to the board of
works.
From the property owners on Willow street, asking that the roadway
to be graded between Watet and Front
streets.      Referred to board of works
side of the wharf. Mr. Williams wliu
was present said that this was the
eoventh team of horses to Tall from
that whart In the past four years and
that at any time loss of human life
might occur. The wharf should be
either put in proper shapa or else
teams should not be allowed on it.
He suggested that posts four nnd one-
half feet high, of iron, with chiiius
connecting them would meet the
difficulty.
The matter of thu claim was referred to the oity solicitor to determine the city's liability and the question of putting a chain around the
wharf wbb referrud to tne board of
works.
The report of thu chief of the flru
department for the year 1001 was read.
It was a voluminous document setting
forth among othor things a number of
arguments as to why a paid fire department should be maintained in the
city in preference to the part volunteer or oall system now in use here.
It called attention to the style of
buildings in the city and tlie necessity
of good appliancos. In the past serious fires had only been averted Improper treatment. Puople should
always send in alarms even fcr tiivial
fires and not try to extinguish them-
without appliances, as by this
means most fires get great headway.
He reoommened : That the paid force
be increased to eight men. That an
electric fire alarm system be put in,
a four inch stand pipe be placed in
eaoh of tho schools from cellar to
ceiling; erection of a flrehall in the
business quarters and another itation
in the upper part of the city. That a
team of horses bo purchased to be
used with the hook aud ladder   truck
The report was referred to the fire,
water and light committee.
Aid. Irving introduced a bylaw lor
authorizing the raising of a temporary loan for cuirent expenses,
which was read the first and second
times. The council then adjourned
until March 31.

COPPER SITUATION.
The Amalgamated Copper Co. it
seems, has not yet absorbed all of the
smaller concerns that it de-sires to.and
is still endeavoring; to keep down the
price of copper until V can accompish
its endB. It is still negotiating for
some large copper interests in Montana and when these deals bave been
closed it will probably throw itself
on tho side of those who aie trying to
maintain the price of copper, andthat
metal should then advance from be
tween 12 and VI cents to 14 or perhaps
a cent over tbat figure. It is not
believed that the metal can be lung
maintained the old price of 17 cents,
unless there is a marked cut in tbe
production. Some of the larger producers have lessened tbeir output
considerably, ��nd if this is kopt up the
surplus stocks should soon be consumed. With copper at 14 cents there
would be a fair margin of profit for
the copper-gold mines of this province
and they could pay dividends. It is
hoped, therefore, that the Amalga,
iu ated oompany may soon be able to
close its negotitions so that copper
may tise and incieased profits come to
our mines.
The cicrular of James Lewis and
Sons, of Liverpool, of March 3rd has
the following to say of the situation;
No ^definite   agreement    appears to
have been arranged between   the leading European   and   American   Copper
Ilining  companies,   as a result of the
recent visit to New York   of  directors
of  one   of   the former.    The   preseut
position we understand to be   that the
chief   American   producers   have   expressed a willigness to co-operate with
other   large   producers to obviate  an
excess   of   production   over consumption, as soon as it suits them to do so.
Meanwhile     it     is   stated   that   the
Calumet company have voluntarily reduced their output ten per oent.;  that
the   United   Verde   mine of   Arizona
(whose production In 1900 was   20,0011
ions of 2,GOO lbs.) have reduced to tbe
extent  of   one-third;   and   that other
leading   companies  ot   Arizona    are
ready,    as far as possible,   to assist to
maintain values at a reasonable   level
by a limitation oi their output. Negotiations are said to be pending for the
acquisition by tbo Amalgamated Copper compnny uf  additional   important
mines in Montana.   That tho company
most   largely   interested  in   the production of copper   should permanently
throw   difficulties   in    the way of en-
htinciug tbe value of this metal would
be a hti'iiii;re anomaly.
Consumption iu Kngland continues
exceptionally large, the deliveries to
consumers during the past two months
being B9.401 tons, against 18,128 tons
for the same period 'ast your.
Ueimauy hns lately bought very
freely,   and   thc   consumption of that
country this yeai promises to considerably exceed thai ol last, though for
the month (if January it appears
small in consequence of tlie small receipts of American copper, the chief
part of tbe increased shipments from
the United States having oome to England. Sales in the Unite I States for
January are reported to be quite equal
to those of a yonr ago, while contracts
made in February are 85 per cent,
greater than in February, 1901. A
large portion of the surplus toek held
in the United States at tbe cud of i��01

Montreal, for the purpose ol adopting
bylaws and electing officers for the
current year. The, objects of the
society, as tne name indicates, are to
protect the fish and game of the
Kootenays from indiscriminate
destruction, and to assist the officers
of the law in prosecuting those who
hunt and fish during the prohinited
Beason, besides it will endeavor to
have the bounties raised so that
wolveB and coyotes which prey on
deer and elk, eto., may be destroyed.
The country abounds iu game, but if
pot and pelt hunters are allowed to
destroy in soason and out of season,
It would soon be decimated. Protect
the game by assisting in every legitimate way the officers of the law and
there will be excellent sport for the
hunter and fishermen for many years
to come. There are many residents of
Nelson who are in full accord with
the objects of the society and they
should mnko It their business to
attend the meeting tllis evening and
so lond their influence tu a good
uovement which everyone conversant
with the situation knows will havo a
beneficial effect. If tourists are to be
encouraged to come here the game
must be protected by all possible
safeguards.
TO PROTECT GAME, ETC.

King Edward purpoBes signalizing
his coronation by giving a dinner to
half a million of the very poor of
London. The undertaking is a large
one and 28 of the metropolitan mayois
have been invited to assist in carrying it out. Five years ago on the
occasion of theXQueen's jubilee,'"ithe
present Queen, who was then Princess
of Wales, was instrumental in carrying to a successful issue the giving of
dinners to 310,000 persons. Sir
Thomas Lipton headed the subscription list at that time with ��25,000.
Tbe dinner on tbat occasion was
given in 50 districts. King Edward's
idea is that the poor shall feel that
they participate in the festivities incident to the coronation as well as the
rich.
The Mining and Engineering Journal bas the following to say of the
iron deposits near Kitchener; The
Kitchener ore, so far as developed, is
a high grade bessemer ore so situated
that it can be smelted on tbe spot or
transported without very great cost or
difficulty to furnaces in the coast
region of British Columbia, or to the
vicinity of the coal mines and coke
ovens of the Crow's Nest Pass country.
One of the latter alternatives seems
the more probable, if tbe analogy of
all modern practice is to hold good;
since it is the almost universal custom at present to carry the ore to the
fuel rather than the fuel the ore.
The important point is that when the
time comes tn build np an iron industry to Bupply the Pacific ooast and
the export trade to the east���which
may not be far distant���the raw
material will not be lacking and it
seems reasonably certain that it will
be among the best of its  kind.
One of the greatest legal battcs ever
fought for trades unions is now being
waged in Great Britain. Some time
since the House of Lords decided that
labor organizations are financially
responsible for tbe acts of officers and
members. The Amalgamated Society
of Railway Servants bas been Bued jor
8122,130 damages, which are said to
have beon inflicted on the company as
result of the Taff Vale railway strike
of last year. The suit of the Centre
Star and the War Eagle Mining oom
panics against the Western Federation
ol Miners, the Rossland Miners'
union,' Carpenters' union and other
unions aud members of unions for
damages and to enjoin tho unions and
their members from certain acts,which
was begun some time since was
founded on tbo decision of the Honse
of Lords that onions could be sued.
Tbe outcome of these suits will be
watched with deep intorest.
The Tourist association inaugurated
in Nolson is a move in the right di-
ruction, E��ys the Ymir Mirror. Tourists, as a rulu, are people in search ot
pleasure, and aro preared to pay for
the luxury. Thej are ever looking
for something new snd attractive, and
all that is needed to make tbe Kootenays popular with this class of people
is that its attractions be made known.
To accomplish this end requires
considerable tact. It is alsc essential
to success that petty jealousies be
buried, and tbat no particular distriot
shall have the boom. However, when
once we get the tourist patronage, we
can easily cater to it. We have in the
Kootenays the grandest scenery In
the world���a region of magnificent
distances, possessing that particular
charm that the man who has sported
with the rod or gnn in other well-
known quarters, has his experience
put to a new test in the Kootenays.
Insteaa of landing a two-pound trout,
as he has beeu accustomed to In other
waters, he will here havo his piscatorial skill taxed In manipulating a
five-pounder. Had Walton, iu his
day, known of the Kootenays, he
would bave immortalized its waters.

FEUNIE MINEKS UNION.
The third annual meeting of the
Simcoo Mining Co., operating the
Sophie, in the Ilig Horn group, wbb
held io the offices of the company io
Ymir, on Tuesday last. The retiring
officers were ro-elocteu: S.Dcsllrisay,
president and treasurer; J. Trumbold*
Boston, vioe-prosident; R, McRobeits,
secretary The following will constitute the board of directors, S. Des-
Brisay, J. Trombold, R. Mc Roberts,
J. H. Spencer, W. W. Beer, \V.
Edgar, aud T. C. Woods. It wns decided to resume operations as soon as
the season opens, Tho maiu tunnel ia
in about 330 feet, with two shafts of
40 and 25 feet, respectively, and considerable cross-cutting.
William Kidder, a flouring mill
manager of Terre Haute, Ind., and
A. W.^Wright, mining promoter, were
guests at the Phair yesterday. They
are representatives of the Portland
Mining Co., whioh owns four claims
io tho Aspen Grove camp in tho
Similkameen division. About, a year
and a half since Mr. Wright acquired
control of four claims in the camp.
They are high grade claims, and the
ore oarrles small values in gold and
silver, but runs about 10 nei cent in
copper. Mr. Wright proceeded at ouce
to Terre Haute, where he succeeded in
interesting William Kidder and others
and a company known as the Portland
Mining Co. was formed with a capital
stock of 81,500,000. The work of
development was begun some time
since, Tho company sent an agent
out last year and he returned with a
satisfactory account of the richness
and extent of the veins on the property. Now Mr. Kidder has como to
British Columbia and will examine
the mines of Rossland aud Phoenix
and the smelters of Graud Forks and
Greenwood ih order to determine what
will be the best method of mining and
reducing the ores of tue Portland
W- Mining Co. Messrs. Kidder and
Wright left for Roassland yesterday.
Enthusiastic   Meetings   Which Added
Many to the Membership.
.lames Wilks returned last night
from a trip to Fernie where he had
gone at the invitation of tho Fernie
Miner's union to address a meeting on
the objects of trades unionism and its
benefits to working mon. The meeting was held in Joyce's hall on Saturday night and was so largely
attended that many had to stand.
Much enthusiasm was evinced and tho
meeting was a hearty one throughout.
,lohn llescott, presiJent of tbe Fernie
Miners' union presided. Rev. Mr.
Ilallford,pastor of the Baptist church,
also spoke expressing himself in accord with the objects of the meeting.
Tho primary objeot of the meeting
was to revive interest in the .".liners'
union and in this it fullilled its object
completely as at the conclusion 117
candidates were initiated. It was
found that Joyce's hall was too small
to accommodate all the miners and
the owners of Princess ball kindly
planed it at their disposal for meetings on Sunday afternoon and evening
when the initiation ceremonies wer
continued. At Ihe three meetings
there was a total of 257 oandidates
joined or were reinstated, bringing
the total membership up to the vicinity of 400. Tho members of the union
are muoh gratified at the insult of the
meetings and passed a vote of thanks
to Mr. Wilks for his visit. Tbey have
become very enthusiastic in their
organization and intend to make it
the banner one of the district. Stepj
will be taken at tbe next meeting to
elect the quota of dolegates to the
convention to be held in Kamloops.
Action has been entered by Henry
Kennedy, of Fernie, against Robert
Kennedy, of Morrissey, for $5,000 damages for tbe alieniation of the affections of the wife uf tbe said Henry
Kennedy, for persuading hor to leave
his home and harboring her. The
C3B6 will come up for trial in Nelson,

In the fight between Jim Burrows

Referee Tuttie, a draw, both men
being on their leet at the end of the
20th round. The contest was tho best
evei witnessed in East Kotenay. It

the ether fell over, Hystaudors caught
hold of the carriage and by main
strength prevented it from going over
and tho passengers were tak en out.
The traces of tho harness wero broken
by tho weight of the horse which for
a time had beon held suspended head
downward over tho wharf. Thoy were
so frightened or benumbed that they
mado no effort to save themselves
whon they fell to the water though it
was not deep. Thore was no boat at
hand and nothing could be done until
it was too late. One of the ludios
who was ill, suffored a severe shock,
but had recovered sufficiently yesterday morning to leave for her destination, Spokane.       r ���������--,

About 3.30 on Sunday morning ns
Constnl'lo Hardy was passing Josephine street on Front ho heard a poculiar
tinkle and looking up tho stieet saw a
man turn tho corner cf Lake street.
The hurried way tho man was wulk-
ing attracted the constable's attention and he walked up towards tho
corner, in time to see the other hido
something under thu sidewalk and
then go into one oi the houses nearby.
The constable investigated and found
ten bottles of beer under tho sidewalk.
Ho thou followed tho man who had
bidden tbem into the bouse und asked
him wheru ho got them. Tbo man,
who had five moro bottles on his
person, was unable to give any satisfactory account nnd was therefore
takon to the lockup. It wus finally
found lhat hu, W. Serantin, with a
boy named Howell, had tukeu the
beer lrom where it lmd boen stored by
Turner Beeton and Co., under u store
on Josephine street, the door having
been loft open while some repairs
were going on. The case came up for
trial yesterday nnd both pleadod
guilty. Tho police magistrate reserved
judgment until today.
