Nelson,   British Columbia, Friday, January 31, 1902
Eleventh   Year
Nelson Amateurs Successfully
Produce High Class
Soloists.   Chorus   and   Orchestra Win Unstinted
At the Opera Douse last evening
another triumph was scored for the
Nelaoc amateurs, under the clever
leadership of Herr Steiner, in the production of Rossini's masterpiece,
si nl, it Mater, and selections from
other oratorios. Many fears had been
expressed previous to the performance
that in attempting such difficult music
it would be Impossible to carry the
affair off with the success attained
on previous entertainments, but this
was fortunately unfounded.
Nelson audiences have the reputation of being verv critical in the
vigorous applause and unanimous expressions of approval heard after the
performance last night showed that
thov car also be as strongly appreciative of merit. Herr Steiner and Mr.
Geo. Kydd especially deserve all
credit for their successful carrying
through of the enterpiree, as alBO the
ladies and gentlemen who so ably
assisted in tbe musical part of tbe
programme. Mr. W. A. Jowett as
accompanist, was very good, as also
the members ot tho orchestra who
played as one instrument, the harmony throughout being excellent. ���
The soprano solo by Mis. Parry,
Ave Maria, was probably the best
selection of the evening, and the audience were not satisfied until nn encore
was given.
Mrs. Hannington in both the solos
and part songs in which she took part
was warmly applauded. Her voice is
splendidly adopted for sacred music
and in the cavatina, I Will Sing of
Thy Great Mercy, waa heard to great
advantage and her future appearances
will always be looked forward to
with pleasure by the music lovers of
the city.
Mr. George Kydd has a tenor voice
of great strength and range and besides being largely instrumental in
getting the concert np and canying it
through, contributed In no small
measure to the programme.
Mr. E. Grizelle, who took the bass
solo part is well known in thc eity
nnd last evening sang his selections
very creditably.
Great regret will be felt in the announcement that llerr Steiner is leaving Nelson on Baturday for Spokane.
Nelson has been greatly Indebted to
this gentleman fur his able conducting
of so many high class musical entertainments and bis leaving the city
will create a gap in musical circles
that it will be hard to fill. All will
hope that at some date in the near
future he will again return.
Following is the programme given

Invitations Tendered Him.
Washington, Jan. 30.���The committee on arrangements for the reception ot Prince Henry held another
meeting today and completed the
itinerary of the western and southern
trip whioh will be taken by the

itself embarrassed by its de-ire to
meet the wishes oi Prince Henry to
see as muoh cf the United States as
possible in the time allotted to his
visit and the wishes of the various
cities and communities to have him
stop some time in each. The effort to
reconcile those conditions has resulted
In a programme which allots a very
short period of timo to many of the
localities that had hoped to have the
prince with them at least one or two
days, ln Cincinnati his stay will be
less than half a day and in other
oases it has been necessary to cut out
important cities or nrcak up the long
night runs. Atlanta has been omitted
from the programme and Chattanooga
probably will be the extrorne southern

The Americans are putting their
bouses in order for the reception of
Prince Henry next month. The committee ol >"ew Yorkers that Mayor
Low has appointed to meet the Prince
is a large and notable one and in
eludes men who have international
lepotations. Among the 194 are
Andrew Carnegie, Samuel L. Clemens,
Dishop Andrews, .lunies Gordon Bennett, Cornelius Bliss, Archbishop
Corrigau, Charles S. Fairehild,
George J. Gould, William R. Grace,
William U. llearht, Ur. W. T. Hel-
mitt, William Dean Howell, Daniel

Morton, Rev. C. II. Parkliurst, Bishop
Potter, Whitelaw Reid, John D,
Rsickefeller, Carl Schur?, Osear S.
Strans, W, K. Vauilurbilt aud William
C. Whitney.
Among (jtuen like tbe above the
prince should not lack eutertuinmeut.
Carnegie could give tbo Prince a few
tips on how easy it is io found
libraries when one has money by tbe
hundreds of millions. Clemens can
tell him jokes out of "Innocents
Aborad," "Roughing It," "Tom
Sawyer" and other of bis books in
the pure German, for the prince of
lesters talks German like a native of
Berlin. Hearst can explain to Henry
the feeling of a man wlio^is running
three of tlie most sensational papers
in tho United Stales, if not in the
world. Rockefeller could give the
prince pointers ou cornering tbe German oil and copper markets. Howells
would be pleased to inform the prince
of his conception of how the American novel should be constructed.
Morgan could let bim iu on tho
billion dollar steel trust s"crcl8 wbile
Carl Scburz could enlighten tbe prince
on some of lhe turns ot American
politics in choice German.
With Clemens at tbo bow and
Sehurz at the stern, and the other
members of the committee as deckhands, tbe prince bbould sail over a
veritable sea of pleasure whllo he is
in the hands of tbe New York
too larg9, but having mapped out his I
campaign, does not varv his course |
until be has given his advertising

At a meeting of the directors of the
Cariboo (Camp McKinncy) Mining
Company, held on Wednesday a dividend of 1 1-2 cents per bhare was declared. Thia is tbe first dividend paid
since October, 1U00, out previous to
tbat time ;$4'.i8.0"8 in dividends were
paid. A strike of a body of good ore
was recently made in the Cariboo
mine and this together with the dividend has caused an increased demand
for tbe stock.
Advices from London show that
there is a growing and healthy activity in South African mining stocks.
The reports form the Transvaal reveal
tbat it will not he long before mining

general tenor of the war news
is encouraging and there is a
buyoant and well sustained tecling
that tbe war will soon be brought to
a close anil this is reflected in the increased desire to speculate in Rand
mining sbares.
Colonel Ridpath, of Spokane, formerly of tbe Le Roi Mining company,
but now of tbe Sullivan Group Mining companv, of East Kootenay, has
announced himself as a candidate for
Congress in the Eastern Washington
congressional district. Col. Ridpath
nas done much for the mining industry in llritish Columbia and Washington and the plans of which he and
his associates intend to eairy out in
East Kootenay in the way of a
smelter, lead reflnery and corroding works means considerably
more. As ne is a progressive and
popular citizen of Washington be
should be elected congressman and
doubltess will be.
The Canadian Paoiflo railway has
nnder favorable consideration a transcontinental flyer that will make the
trip from Montreal to Vancouver in
tbree days. The run from New York
tu Montreal can be made in half a
clay and if tlio flyer is put on the distance between New York and Vancouver can be traversed in tbree and a
half days The distance between
Montreal and Vancouver is 2,006 miles
and to cover it in 72 hours the train
would have to travel at the rate of 40
1-3 rrilos an hour. The proposed train
would handle no local traffio. The
big Canadian railway is evidently
waking up, as a fast train like tbis
would attract a number of passengers.

In a teaohOr and the cost of li;ing in

as high as those paid to the eity clerk

Nelson from its geographical position will naturally become an important educational centre, and it is Important that the s''h' ols here he   of ns

Tbe trade of the merohants in Nelson is considerably curtailed by the
eastern mail order houses. The merchants could reduce this evil to the
minimum by advertising more in the
local papers. The big houses tell the
peoplo all over the country what tbey
have for sale principally through advertising in the papers. Many of the
local merchants, without an effort in
the same direction, allow the mail
order houses to take considerable
trade away from them, The way to
make it unprofitable lor the mail order

tell the public by means of advertising what you have for salo and wlint

Tho president of the Canadian
l'ai'ific railway has asked the Dominion government to approve of a resolution authorizing the board of dime-
tors, with tho sanction of the shareholders, to increase the capital stock
ul the company to the extent of $20,-
000,000. The money is to be devoted
to new rolling stock, double tracking,
new plants for the construction of
rolling stock, now elevators, improvement of terminals and miscellaneous
improvmerrts. The government, it is
stated, is quite willing to approve of
the issne of tlio stock. Tbe growth of
the Northwest, including the increase
in the mining Industry and the Immense crop of last year in Manitoba,
has made it imperative that   facilities

There is no;h ing .like Asthmalene. It
brinji instant relief, even in t _ worst
cases.   It cures when all else fails.
I The Rev. O F. WELLS, o Villa Ridge,
111., says: "Yonr trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good condition, I cannot
tell you bow thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
yenrs. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you bad overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial aoted like a
cbarm.    Send rue a full size bottle.

Gentlemen: Your Asthmalene is an
excellent remedy for Asthma and Hay
Fever, and its composition alleviates all
troubles which combine with Asthma.
Its success is astonishing and wonderful.
After having it carefully analyzed, we can state that ABthmalene contains
no opium, morphine, chloroform or ether.   Very truly yonrs,

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having teBted the
wonderful effect of your Asthmnlene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been afrlcted with spasmodic asthma for tho past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmalene.
My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
aud she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are aftlioted with this distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D. PHELPS, M. D.

Gentlemen: I wns troubled with Asthma for 22 years. I have tried numerous remedies, but they have all failed. I ran aomss your advertisement and
started with a trial bottle, I found relief at once. I have since purchased your

i************** ***********
II p. Jackson, of the Contaot Consolidated Oold Mines, limited, is in
wwn from Burnt Basin district,where
the company has nine claims, aggregating 300 acres. Operations are
being carried on on the No. 1 vein,
which was formerly known as tho
Mother Lode. A tunnel has been run
;��� for 240 feet and the vein out at a
vertical depth of 200 feet. The ledge
has been drifted on for 50 leet and Is
frsirn four to five feet wide. There is
, streak 18 inches wide which averages $40 to the ton, while the remainder of the ledge, which is of concentrating ore, averages about $13 to the
ton. The values aro all in gold and
silver, as there is no copper nor lead.
The properties are situated by way of
trail, about two miles from the
Columbia and Western railway and
tbe intention is to construct a wagon
road and further on a tramway. With
a tramway 2,000 leet in length the ore
could be put in the oars on the Columbia and Western track.
The development of the properties
has been steady since last June, when
they were taken over by the Contact
company and there are funds enough
in the treasury to last for another
jear. The management is pleased
with the condition of the property and
feels confident that a valuable mine
will result with sufficient development.
Mr, Jackson leaves today for Sandon, where he is Interested in the
Krie Mining company, whose property
consisting ol two claims, is situate
between the Last Chance and the
Payne on Payne mountain. A meeting, he says, is to be held at Sandon
next week for the purposo of deciding
on the question of resumption of woik
on the properties of the company.
One ot the claims in only 600 feet

ore was struck in the Last Chance
Henry Roy, managing direotor, and
II.Hiehardson,secretary,of tbe London
Consolidated Gold Fields Exploration
company, which is operating the
Silver Hill, wore at the Phair yester
day. They came in from the mine and
were en routo for Rossland. They
report that tho tramway, whioh has
just been finished, is working in a
must satisfactory manner and that
from now on the delivery of ore to the
Trail smelter will be rapidly pushed.
They left for Rossland on the afternoon train.
The New Denver Ledge says that
the crosscut tunnol started some weeks
ago on the Neepawa to tap the ledge
from a quarter where it -,-ould bo aafe
Irom snowslides, broae into the ore a
day or two since, and arrangements
are now being made to commence
regular shipments.

Canada Paint Company Will
Move Till a Duty is Imposed.
The statement was made in a dispatch from Montreal that the Canada
Paint company intended to begin tbe
corroding of lead to be purohaeed
Irom the refinery now in course of
erection at Trail. The announcement
had been made rather prematurely as
in an interview published in tho Mon
(real Star, Root,Munro, managing direotor of the Canada Paint company,
states that with a readjustded tariff
the erection of suoh an enterprise iB
altogether probable, but that, under
present conditions, the venture
would not be considered favorably.
Mr. Munro, in a communication
upon the subject says;
"With reference to the roported
establishment of a new Industry In
Canada, for the manufacture of red
and white lead, I have to say that
neither my oompany, nor the Paint
association, has made arrangements
fur Hiieh industry. I have little doubt
that the industry will be set on foot
in Canada,as tho natural devclopmen
<>I the refining of pig load,
"I have no denfiite Information
'rem Trail, II. C., as to when thoir refinery will bo open, but even the completion of a refinery will-not induce
capitalists to invest in the manufacture of white and red lead, which require-* expensive plants, until flrat the
tariff should huve been adjusted bo as
to make the industry possible.
''At tins moment the duty on pig
lead is 15 per cent., on white lead 5
percent., whilo litharge ib free. It Is
plain, therofore, that there is no room
'or capital until the fiscal conditions
ore adjusted. That biing done all
Canadians will welcume the introduc-
Hon of an industry which will relieve the existing anomaly of the lead
we produco being all shipped out of
the oountry while all we oonsutne is
"The statement  to  which you call
my attention ls, therefore,premature."

Ibere are several dangerous spots
in tho river, where the ice is spongy,
and there are others wiiero there is
open water.      Yesterday a young lady]
George Neclands leaves today for a
short visit to Vanconver.
O. Morrow, a well known business
man of Vancouver, is a guest at the
James M. Garahouse, steward of the
C. P. U. lako steamer A tbubasca. is a
guent at the I hair.
Both the Kaslo and the International
have been Uid up for a short time, the
Kokanee carrying tbe passengers and
handling the freight for both the C.
1*. R. aid thc Kaslo and Slocan line.
This arrangement will probably be
kept up while the lake continues
frozen. No ore is being brought out
hy way of Kaslo at present, but is
being kept at the mines.
Mrs. Roborts, of Robert's ranch,
two and a half miles up the lake, has
a force of men cutting ice on tho lake
front. Tbe ice is six inches thick
where there was open water on Sunday. The ice is of excellent quality.
There is no necessity for going to
Mirror lake for a supply of ice this
year as there is plenty of a good
meichautable quality at home.
During the time that the C. P. R.
steamers come only as far as Procter
the company has provided for a service on Monday's, Wednesdays and
Fridays for all Kootenay lake points
south from Procter as far as Koaknee
creek. The train leaving Nelson depot
at 7.15 a. m. will connect at Procter
with the steamer Kokanee taking that
run visiting the points named. Pas-
sengirs can return the same day,
arriving in Nelson at 0.15 p. m.
The ice on the lake is now over six
inches thick, except near the bluff
opposite the city where Boveral small
patches of open water have appeared.
Opposite Nelson the lake is supposed
to bo about 150 feet deep and as there
is a number of rocky ledges crossing
this deep water the current striking
them is turned upwards so that the
warmer water from below is brought
to the surface with the result that unless in zero weather the ice along tha
line of current never la6ts long.
There was a meeting held yesterday
morning at tho Itodega, of those interested in the project of having horse
racing on the ice of tbe lake and after
a considerable discussiun of ways and
means it was decided that it was practicable to carry out the idea. A com-
mitteo was appointed to interview
various ones who would likely help
the scheme along with subscriptions
towards purses to be given, and hy
tonight definite plans will piobably
have been arringed.
The remains of tbe late A. 13. Gray
havo ben taken to Bunyan and Co.'s
undertaking parlors and will be for
warded tonight by the C.P.R. leaving
at 0.40 p.m. Mr. Gray was a member
of the I.O.O.F. of Victoria, and at the
request of the lodge there the local
lodge of Odd Fellows takes chargo of
the remains while here. It was Mr.
Gray's expressed wish that he should
be buried in Victoria. Miss Ethel
Gray, bis daughter arrived last evening from Ymir and will accompany
her father's remains to Victoria.
There is a great deal of planning of
iceboats being dono iu tbe city at the
present time aud if thu ice continues
good till tho last of the week some
new and startling designs in ice-boats
will be seen skimming along next
Sunday, providing there is wind
enough to move them. Messrs. Rolf,
O'Brien nnd Hanltain were the Brst
11 got one ready and in a boat ol their
own design uttracted a gre��t deal of
attention on tbe ice yesterday afternoon. If cold snaps such as the present one could be depended on to come
every winter there ia no doubt that
ice-boating would speedily be a favorite sport here. As a rule, however,
there is very little wind around Nelson and to meet the conditions successfully a boat would have to be
built on tho very best models, and
these would cost from J150 up. With
the probability of there not being
another similar freeze  up of tho   lake
a committee report recommending tbat
an application be made to tho leeisla-
ture for legislation e-npowering the
oity to construct lines for bringing
electric energy to Toronto.

is Proposed to Dredge A Cbsiinel
For Thi> Mainland..t.
Vancouver, Jan. 30.���A novel snp-
gestion has been mode in connection
with tbe proposed Hunting of the
steamer Mainlander. which plies between tbis city and Seattle, and
which was pile up high and dry on a
sandy beach of Sinclair Island last
Friday morning. Tbe steamer is some
distance up on the beadl��� in 'act,
within a few feet of the fence of a
farm on the island
The suggestion is made liy marine
men to dredge out a channel from
deep water up to the vessel, and float
her out. The government suction
dredge King Edward is'on this side of
the line, and another large suction
dredge is in Seattle harbor, either of
wbich could be used foi the purpose
named. It is suggested that a channel
twenty feet wide and deep enough to
float the vessel could be made in a
couple ol days, which would be
cheaper and more expeditious and
safer of use. than the practice of the
usual nietho.l of skidding out the ship
after raising her on jacks, and uuner-
going tbe possibility of straining her.
Channels have frequently been deepened for sailing vessels, where it was
certain that nothing but sand and silt
was en the bottom, by running a
steamer's propel lor over bars, and
thus making a deep enough watercourse for a large ship.

It is Quartz and Not Planer That Has
Heen Found.
Vanooaver, Jan. 30.���Oold has certainly been discovered north of Sumas
on the Canadian side of the boundary
line, but it is not deposited in the
form statod in the reports which
reached this city, According to statements made yesterday by people who
arrived from the boundary line ois-
coveries of placer gold bad been made
by a man named William Davis at, a
point about four and a half miles
north of Numns.
Mr. Michael Fitzpatrick of this city,
who hns just returned from Sutuas
district, says that tbeie is no authentic information there about placer
finds, but there is every reason to believe the accounts given nf the finding
of free milling gold ore. Mr. Fitz-
partick Btates tbat Wm. Davis, the
miner who made the original find, |
Bank a small prospecting hole on the
ledge which he located, and from
among the decomposeo surface quartz
which he took out he secured assays
running over $500 to the ton. Upon
the find being made public by Davis
seme twenty or moro men Hocked to
the location, and it is reported that
other stakings took place. A number
of men are said to have gone from
Chilliwack to the district, aud -.vhen
Mr. Fitspatrick wns at Snams there
existed no little excitement.
Fiom tho latest news obtainable
this morning it appears that the report of placer gold being found cntne
from the report of the original finding
of quartz, und as a placer discovery is
in this respect inaccurate,

At ono time dandruff was attributed
to be the result of a feverish condition
of the scalp, which threw off the

Professor Unna, Hamburg, Germany, noted authority on skin

This germ is really responsible for
the dandruff and for so many bald

Civilization Makes Little Progress So
Long as Any War is Called Jnst.
New York, Jan. 30.���"The killing
of men under the name of war," wrote
Andrew Carnegie, "in a letter which
was read at the P. F. Cclller dinner
at the Metropolitan club lust night,
"is the foulest blot npon humanity
todny. We see umoh discussion ns to
what In or what is not pormissiblfl

that this is a contradiction of terms.
There can b�� nn such tiling a civilized

lt may be stated that the method
whieh refuse peaceful arbitration is
responsible for tho war which ensues.
Britain, having done this, in her dispute with the Transvaal republic is
responsible for the oxtcrm'nation ol
