est In  the Nelson
Gamp.
A crew of four or five men are   now
at work at the Hazel   May   group   on
Crawford creek where trails are being
opened up and other preliminary operation-) being carried out   avith a   view
to active development during the summer.    The statement is made that the
parties   having   the properties   under
bond will spend   $25,0110 this   year in
Opening   up   the   group.    The   Hazel
May,it will be remembered,was bonded last   fall   to eastern capitalists   at
1100,000, Colonel   VV.    N.   llryton,   of
Kaslo, handling the deal.    It   is   understood that the   property   has   been
turned over to a new syndicate at   an
advance of $.1,000 and   that   the new
people are anxious to make the   group
a producer   at ns early   a date as possible.    The claims, eight  in   number,
are located some four miles up   Craw,
ford creek and half a mile   above   the
wagon road.    Eventually it is intend
ed to construct a tramway   to connect
the mine   with   the road.    The Hazel
May   is   a   gold-copper    proposition,
carriyng some   silver, and it   claimed
to be the most promising   prospect rr.
the creek.    The   conditions   aro  such
that the appropriation for   this year':
work should placo the property   on   1
shipping basis and with the transport
ation   facilities    available,     shipping
���jjfculd be carried on all year.
A ROTTEN SYSTEM.
London, May 4.���In the liouse of
commons yesterday, T. P. O'Conner,
Irish nationalist member for the Scotland division of Liverpool, opened a
fierce debate on the Irish question,
by moving to reduce the salary of the
attorney general of Ireland, asserting
that not only was jury packing one of
the most llagvant evils of legal administration in Ireland, but that the
whole system was "calculated to produce abrogation of law, and to suppress individual and -national liberty."

Sandon, May 3.���Heavy snowslides
in this vicinity have caused considerable damage and threaten to close
down several of the mines. A big
slide came down thc bill a short distance above the Noble Five property
on Carpenter creek and filled up the
bed of the creek for seventy feet.
It was feared that the lower working
might be Hooded but the danger
from this source is apparently past.
The stopping of the How of the creek
disorganized the electric, light service
for some bonis but the water came
through the slide liually and lliepow-
er company's wheels are now moving.
At the Idaho mine another slide
came down, blot-king the mouth of
the tunnel completely. A number of
men had narrow escapes from being
caught iu this slide. The crew has
been taken oil' the p-operty and work
will uot be resumed until the slide is
cleared away. A report is current that
a iniiii named C'aviinagh rode for u
considerable distance on ono of the
slides, escaping unhurt. This is the
anniversary of tin b g fire and for a
time it looked as though the town
would be Hooded out.

M'KINLEY'S WELCOME���
The Spokane Spokesman-Review
says: Miss Canada will join with
Miss Columbia In welcoming America's chief to Spokane. The Hritish
Columbian town of Kuslo will share
with tho Falls City the honor of
welcoming President McKinley here
May 80, Chairman I). M. Thompson
of the correspondence committee yesterday receive a letter from Kaslo's
city clerk in which it whs stated that
that eity would lie "glad to join with
Spokane In honoring President McKinley anil in welcoming bim to the
great northwest" and that tho mayor
had appointed to the committee to
visit Spokane the following: Henry
(lelgricb, 0, W. McAnn, O. T. Stone,
C. Caldwell and O. 11. Oorrard. The
letter ls_the Hist received in reply to
11 number sent our neighbors across
the line. All the large towns of Hritish Columbia have asked to send delegations and letteis may yet be received from them."
A report was current here yesterday
that the contract for construction of
the Lardo railroad had been let to
Larsen, Welch and Stewart, the big
firm of contractors who have had a
hand in most of the railroad work in
this district, their last enterprise being the Procter extension east of Nelson. None of the railroad people
here seemed to be posted on the matter, but it was explained that as the
contract would be handled by the construction department, whose nearest
oflice is at Trail and that the local
officials, who are exclusively identi-
ed with the operating and maintenance depaitment, might not necessarily learn the facts before the public.
The active members of the firm which
is supposed to have secured the work,
are Messrs. Welsh and Stewart. The
former is in charge of some work in
Oregon, but was in Nelson recently,
prsumobly in connection with the Lardo contract. John W. Stewart is superintending the firm's contract on
tho Canada Northern. Mr. Welsh will
probalby be in charge of the Lardo
work if the firm builds the road.
The new time card on the Spokane
Falls A Northern takes effect this
morning. The south bound train will
leave the union depot at 0.15 this
morning, and departs from the hill
station at 10.10. This Is a couple of
hours later than under the old schedule and will be very much more convenient hour for the travelling public.
Returning the noitlibound train will
arrive at the hill station at 0.30 p.
ai, and ut the Union depot at 7.15
practically the same time us formerly.
The latter part of the schedule will
be somewhat of a disappointment to
business men who had hoped the Great
Northern people would be able to arrange mutters to get the eastern mail
in here at an earlier hour than has
been the case. Apparently the company has been unable to accomplish
this although the running time between Spokane and Nelson has been
cut down by a couple of hours, the
train not leaving Spokane for a couple
of hours after the former hour of departure.   The new Bervice Is   un   iin-
used, each with a capacity for carrying fifteen sacks of ore and so arranged as to be able to carry up timbers
aud supp'ies foi the mine.
The company will erect a large ore
house at tbe foot of the tramway and
also extend the present wagon road
to that point.
This tramway will enable the Hewitt company to bring down and ship
ore at any season of the year and a
blockade need not occur again at. that
mine.���Silvertonian.

THE NEWEST TRUST.
New York, May 4���Tbe Journal of
Commerce says: Plans are now under
discussion for a combination of the
leading manufacturers of shovels and
spades. There has been a very compact understanding in this trade for a
long time, but now actual merging
of interests is proposed. The new
company, if formed, may be known as
the Ames Shovel A Tool company. It
is reported that options have been secured on plants representing over 00
per cent of the business.

J. C.  DREWRY'S OPINION OP
THE SITUATION.
SAYS     SMELTING     COMBINE     IS
CONSPIRING TO CURTAIL OUTPUT OF  CANADIAN   LEAD.
"All of the lead producers in Hrit
ish Columbia are waiting a further de
velopiuents in the lead market with
keen interest," said J. C. Drewry,
managing director of the Canadian
Gold Field syndicate,while iu Spokane
ou Saturday on his way home from
California. "Our company will keep
a force of 50 men at woik in development on the St.Eugene in East Kootenay, but the mill has been closed, because of the low price of lead. There
is no Immediate likelihood that it
will be reopened. The American
smelting combine, which is engaged
in keeping up the price of lead, is do
ing its best to curtail the production
In accord with that policy, the trust
has absolutely refused to buy our
oies. That condition has existed for
nearly three months, and Canadian
lead producers lind themselves piacti-
cally without a market.
"The Trail smelter, which has a
lead stack, has handled somo 0111 and
bas shipped the crude product to the
Selby plant in San Francisco to be
refined. Such an arrangement, however, has proven unsatisfactory, for
the difference in duty on ore and on
crude lead entering the United States
is enough to make this arrangement
exceedingly expensive.
"The Trail smelter only pays for
lead on the London quotation, which
recently fell from ��18 to less than ��18
per ton. That means only about $3
per hundred for lead, while American
miners  are   getting  $4 foi their out-

Winnipeg, May 4.��� 3. S. Ewart, K.
C., arrived from Ottawa today, where
be l'dpicsented the Northern Pacific as
solicitor in watching the Manitoba
railway bill before the committee.
Mr. Ewart stated to a reporter that he
thought the bill would go through the
house, It is probable, however, for
those opposed to it, Mr. Bonrassa and
Mr. Charleton, or any others, to talk
against it until the time is expired,
if a time limit for tbe discussion of
the bill was fixed. He heard before
he left that such an attempt would
be made.
Winnipeg, May 4.���The western

NEW REFINING SYSTEM.
London, May 4.���A new process by
which copper bars sheets and tubes
can be manufactured from the .rude
material almost at the pit's mouth has
been dicovered. This will mean a
saving of something like ��80 a ton on
the finished material. The process is
electrolytic, where at present it re
quires many days to convert the raw
material into sheet copper the new
process will turn out the finished ai-
ticle by a single operation. Hritish
and Canadian rights have already been
secured by syndicates, and it is understood that Senator Clark of Montana has the option on the American
rights, ti.e purchase price running into six figures.

Five hundred public school teachers
went to the city hall today to draw
their monthly salary, but for the flist
time in the history of the city it was
not paid. Suspension of payment was
due to the fact that u crisis bus been
reached in the difference between the
school board and the city regarding
the question of Hillary ineiease. The
school board decided in Marcli upon
certain increases to begin .lunuary 1st
but pay day was just before eiistm
holidays and as the teachers were particularly anxious to get their salaries
they were paid then to save trouble.
Last month, however, the trustees
determined to take a stand for what
they deemed a prerogative of the school
bourd and made up their minds if
tbey paid at all they would pay In-
cieased salaries together with arrears,
amounting to 811,000. On Thursday
afternoon the board of the city instructed the treuBiirer to stipulate
that the salaries would be paid on
the busls of 11)00, causing the trouble.

millions, then under a debt of twn
hundred and forty million, and lastly
under a debt of eight hundred (really
nine hundred I millions were beyond
all doubt under a twofold mistake.
They greatly overrated the pressure
of the burden,they greatly underrated
the strength by which the burden was
to be borne.' It is well to bear in
mind this remarkably accurate forecast, and the widely different conditions which exist today as compared
with 85 years ago in forming a judg.
ment upou the increase of debt
caused by the Boer war. The pessimistic view taken by Sir William
Hill-court and other members of the
Opposition is not a sound one. Be-
giettalde as has been the cost of the
j war and the addition to the taxation
and debt of the country, it was inevitable, and will not check the onward
progress of the empire. Indeed it
will be fortunate if within a quarter
century to come the nation is not called upon to make much greater sacrifices to maintain her honor and safety I
than have been suffered within the 1
past few years. The cost of the Boci
war is hut a trifle compared with '
that which the American republic I
endured less than 4(1 yeurs ago. Yet
from that struggle the most bloody
and costly In the world s history, a
full and complete recovery has been
made.

Sydney, Cape Breton, 13,000 tolls of
coal a day, or at the rate of 3,756,000
tons a year.
Till-:    BRITISH    NATIONAL   DEBT.
Down to the time ol the revolution
of U'.ss tho Hritish national debt
may be said to huve had no existence, tbe total being under two-thirds
of a million pounds. King William
added to the debt nearly sixteen millions during the IS years of his reign
At the end of Queen Anne's reign :)S
millions bad been added. Under
the first George the debt decreased
slightly, but Ocorge the Second, in a
reign ot' X\ years left tbe countiy more
involved by 87 million than he found
it. During the first 12 years of George
III the debt was again decreased by
10 millions and at the time of the revolt of the American colonies it was
under 180 millions ($050,000,000),
an amount which frightened all the political economists of the day. The
cost of tho American war added .1
millions sterling to the permanent
debt. An effort was made to reduce
the amount between ITsland 170.'! over
111 millions were paid oil. Then began the French re/olutionary war, and
with a short interval of so-called
peace, resulting only from exhaustion,
it lasted till Napoleon was Bent to
St. Helena in 1815. During these 2.1
yeurs money was borrowed in the
most extravagant manner. The average price of tlOU three per cent stock
was under i'58. After all this borrowing ut seemingly ruinous rates
the national debt in lsic stood at over
..'.11111,0110,11011. It was then equal to
��45 per head of the population of the
United Kindgdom. A strenuous effort
was then made to reduce the debt,
and within a few years Km millions
were paid off. From 1817 till Queen
Victoria caiue to the throne, a period
of 20 years, there was a yearly reduction of trom one to five millions,
with the exception of 18.13 in which
the abolition of slavery had increased
the debt. The Crimean war added 30
millons, so that in March 1857 the
total was ��858,019,443. In 42 years
thereafter over 200 millions, or nearly
a quarter of the entire national debt,
was paid off and the interest charge
greatly reduced. In 1800 the gross total of the liabilities of the United
Kingdom, funded and unfunded wus
��035,040,005. Bui it ia to be observed that while the debt had been thus
reduced the population,wealth and resources of the Kingdom had so increased that tbe reduced debt came to
be but a fraction of the burden that
"as felt in 1815. The population
was then not more than 18 million,
and Is now about 41 millions. With
the added wealth it is fail to assume
that Hie Kingdom could carry with
ai much ease u debt five times as great
as was borne in 1815, and it is to be
presumed would make sacrifices to
tbat extent should the empire be now
or hereafter compelled to undertake
another struggle for existence, In
his Interesting sketch of the origin of
the national debt, Maeauliiy, writing
fifty vents ago remarks: "A long
experience justifies us in believing
that England may in the twentieth
Century be better able to pay a debt
ot sixteen hundred millions than she
is at present able to bear her present
load." "Hut, be this as it may," to
quote Maeauliiy again, "those who
so confidently predicted that she
(England) must sink, first under a
debt of fifty millions, then under A
debt of eighty millions, then under a
debt of one hundred millions,then undent debt of   one   hundred and   forty

The Dead Sea smface is somo 1,312
feet below the level of the ocean.
Nearly the entire valley of the .Ionian
is also below sea level. Recently it
has been observed that tbe Dead Sea
is rising and this causes speculation
concerning the possibility that some
subterranean connection has been
formed between the inland sea and the
ocean. Should this prove to be the
case tbe valley of the Jordan and
many of the sacred and historic parts
of Palestine may yet be   submerged,
Mr. Whitney, president of the Do
minion lion and Steel company,whose
works are nearing completion at
Sydney, Cape Breton, says that by
August they will be turning out 1,0(10
tolls of steel per day, or at the rate of
313,000 tons a year. The. steel rail
plunl material is all on the giound
und' they hope to be making steel
rails early in October next. If the
company put their entire contemplated output into steel rails it would be
sufficient to supply eight miles of rail
way per day with 70-lb. rails, or ..
���100 miles in a year of 313 working
days.

TALK OP  A STAMP.
(Ohio State Journal.)
I'm a stamp
A postage stamp
A two center;
Don't want to brag.
Hut I was never
Licked.
Except once;
Hy a gentleman,   too;
He put me on
To a good thing;
It was an envelope
Perfumed, pink, square;
I've been stuck on
That envelope
Ever since;
He dropped
The envelope and me
Through a slot in a dark box;
But v*e were rescued
By a ma'l clerk,
More'* the pity:
He hit he an  awful
Sniiia.li with a hauiincr;
It left my face
lllaek and blue;
Then I went on a long
Journey
Of two (lays;
And when we arrived
The pink envelope aud mo
We were presented
To a perfect love
Of a gill,
AVith the stunningest pair
Of blue eyes
That ever blinked;
Bay, she's a dream !
Well, she mutilated
The pink enevlope
And tore one corner
Of me off
With a hairpin ;
Then she read what
Was inside
The pink envelope.
I never saw a gill blush
So beautifully i
1 would be stuck
On her if I could.
Well she placed
The writing back
In the pink envelope,
Then she kissed me,
O, you little godlets!
Her lips were ripe
As cherries.
And warm
As the summer suns,
We
The pink enevlope and me
Are now
Nestling snugly
In her bosom;
We <an hear
Her heart throb;
When it goes fastest
.She takes us out
And kisses me,
O, say,
This is great!
I'm glad
I'm a stamp
A two-center.

CRICKET COACH,
Euglisliniau Comments on American Food,
The English couch of the German-
town Pa., Cricket Club had an experience with food wortli knowing.
lie says. 'When I came to this country I was engaged as Professional
Coach. I had suffered a long time
from constipation, and pains In the
lower part of the back, and after
bowling and coaching for about an
hour, the pains would be so severe
they would neurly draw me to the
ground.
1 tried many remedies without success. Finally I went on Grape-Nuts
Food using it for breakfast iu place
of oatmeal. Within three days I began to feel better. I have kept it up
regularly and now feel like a new
man.
J can go on and bowl for hours
without a pain, liowels aie as regular as a clock and my head is cleat
and steady.
1 advise its use with all our players.1'    J, Caesar, Pro. Coach.
No food on earth will put a man in
lit condition as surely and quickly as
Grape-Nuts.    There's a reason.
