WHOLESALERS'
GRIEVANCES
Board of Trade Discusses Re-
tall Grocers' Association
Circular.
Meeting to Be Held Oct, 17
to Arrange Amicable
Relations.
A meeting of the board of trade wns
held hist evening to discuss some important business, with regard to the
piesent attitude of tlie retail and
wholesale  grocers   toward each other.
The members present were G, V.
Unit, chairman, Tliorbnm Allen, J.
V. Weir, ii. VV. Gray, W, VV. ileer,
T. Morley, J. M. Lay, P. Chapman,
K. Ii. Hedley, ('���. Bell, P. Stavkoy,
E, Ferguson, s. 8. Taylor, It.
Robertson, .1. 0. T. Crofts, P. Lamont
and C. llillycr, aild.F. \V. Swannell,
secretary.
After the routine business of the
meeting was transacted Mr. Chapman
read an account of the proceedings in
connection with the geltting up of
the memorial to Mr. McLean in relation to the freight, rate grievances.
He then said that during the last
weak a number of tluir customeis in
ot her towns haii spoken to him of a
letter whicli they bad received from
the Retail Grocers' association, of
Nelson, in wnich it was stated Unit at
a meeting of the latter association it
had been decided to send a circular
lettet to other retail dealers ashing
their opinion on certain questions,
The first question was as lo what constituted a jobber and wbat a wholesaler,the seoond iclatud to wholesalers
Infringing or. retallets trade, and
as to whether Ihe wholesal-
eis should be entitled to discount on
certain nrti.'lcs such as sugar, eto., to
which the retailers weri' not entitled,
nnd the third, should wholesalers be
allowed special concession"! as tu
freight rates which thoy are now trying to get with some hope of success;,
anil ashing the assistance of the out-
aide dealers in the matter. The letter
waa signed, by the secretary, C.
Morrison.
Mr. Chapman was of the opinion
that n series crisis in tbe life of the
wholesale trade ol Nellson had arisen.
These letters hnd beeu sent out to
many towns that were jealous of the
pjsition that Nelson aspired to as the
commercial center of the Kootenays.
It was not unlikely to suppose that
many of thoso to whom tho letter had
been sent were glad to sec tbe step
that had been taken by the ietai'ers
and would suppoit it perhaps to the
extent of sending resolutions to
Ottawa on tbe subject with the objeet
of defeating the petition thnt bad
been sent in through l'rof. McLean.
Ho therefore would make n motion
that the Board of Trade endorse the
report made by the committee of tlie
Hoard of Trade appointed to draft the
railway rate grievances of the city.
M .*. Hell, who wns the only member of the Retail Grocers' association
present, was asked by tbe chairman if
he had anything to say in the matter.
Mr. Hell said thnt he was not ut Iho
meeting ns representing the Retail
Association. He thought thc retailers
had a grievance and n substantial one
ngninst the wholesalers. The retailers should have been represented at
the moetiug, but he himself had not
come piepared to do nny talking on
tho subjeot, although as a retailer his
sympathies were with the retnileis.
K. Ferguson said thnt the grievances
complained of were not really between
tho retail und wholosalo trade of Nelson but between the grocery section of
it only. tt was not u proper matter
to disouss before thc Hoard of Trade
until they hnd adopted the resolution
which bad been lecommended by their
committee and thoy could then discuss the paiagraph in the letter later
if neoessary.
Mr. Holt said that the board hud
worked for a long time to secure better rates for the wholesalers. He
would therelore put it to motion us to
whether the report should be. adopted.
This Wns dono und the motion was
unanimously adopted.
A short discussion followed on the
letter sent by the retailers, when Mr,
Ferguson said that to put the thing in
shape he would move thai a com-
mlltee   be   appointed   to     meet    the
Retailers' Association to nsk them to
withdraw the third clause in their
i letter, which is liable to defent the
objects of the Board of Trade
resolution.
ln speaking to the amendment Mr.
Robertson said that the question in
the thud paragraph was u most unfortunate one. It was no oredit to the
retailers. He did uot know of a lioaiil
of Trade that had been ablo to settle
ns to where the line was to be drawn
between wholesaler and retailer.
Some of the retailers in the town
would not purchase 8150 of goods from
a local wholesaler in a year, while n
mine would frequently give nn order
for $1,1100 of goods at one time, and
was the wholesaler to confine his
trade solely to those that treated bim
like the former. The manager of the
coinpany that recently purchased the
city debentures of Nelson had made a
visit here Incidentally, Ue hud been
extremely impressed with Nelson's
location and resources, with its buildings and other lignB of prosperity,
and bo believed it was the natural
distilnition point for the surrounding
territory. On his recommendation
the company hud taken tho debentures, and thoy were a company thut
would not think of tnking ordinary
debentures. 'ihey would not touch
those of Rossland. It was to the great
commercial advantages of Nelson they
look, and not to the mines near tbe
city. lie considered that the whole
city hnd suffered au injury thonrgh the
aetion of the detailers.
The motion of Mr. Fcrgnson after
some further discussion was put to a
vote and unanimously carried, and a
OOmmittee of three, Messrs. Lay,
Allen, and Sherwood was appointed
oy the chairman to act.
The Retail Grocers' association will
bold a meeting on Ootobor 17ih, when
it is hoped that some understanding
may be arrived at.

Venezuela Ready For a Settlement���
The Frontier Armed.
Caracas, Venczucln, Oct. 10.���-Via
llavti.���The correspondent here of the
Associated Press is cabled to sny upon
excellent grounds that the idea of a
peaceful, friendly, satisfactory nnd
conclusive ni rangeme'it between Venezuela and Colombia of the existing
troubles is not repulsive nor foreign
to Venezela, it being always understood thnt Venezuela's national honor
will in no wav suffer thereby, and
that during the past fortnight this
idea bas grown and has secured increased following in CuracaB, where
the possibilities of an amicable settlement are more or less occupying public attention. Venezuela recognises
the fuel that tho maintenance of a
large army on.the frontier is exceedingly coatly without diiectly benefiting the country. Along the frontier,
from Taehia to Guajirn, the Venezuelan army has protected the occupied
positions by entrenching and strengthening tiiOMO in which the troops will
await attack, having orders to remain
firmly on the defensive and not to
adopt measures of nggcrssion, but to
repel invasion. The reply to the
memorandum of Dr. Blanohe, the
Venezuelan minister of foreign affairs,
and to Venezuela's request to Dr.
Rioo, the minister of Colombia to
Venezuela, to explain Colombia's in*
vnsion of Lacbira in July, could reach
here at the end of this month, nccord-
mg to tl.e calculations of the time
Dr. Rico requires to roach Hogotn,
confer with the Colombian cabinet
and transmit the letter with the
answers to Caracas. Venezuela is
unxious to receive Colombiu's reply.
In tho meantime, the frontier situu-
tion is dangerous. Two forces of field
men, with n dividing neutral zone,
are confronting each other. A misunderstood order,n trivial accident, or
a minor unintended engagement might
precipitate a blocdy fight. Venezuela
is confident tbat she can successfully
hold her present position against a
pt.ssiblo invasion.

MOVEMENTS OF NAVY.
Victorin, Oct, 10 -H. M. S. Amphion, the Bocond largest ship on the
Pacific station, has been ordered to
Panama by the British admiralty to
look after British interests there during tho progress of the rebellion. One
ship, the Icarus, is already there. In
the spring the two torpedo boat
destroyers Virago and Spairow Hawk,
which huve been here for several
years, will cross the Pacific to join
the Asiatic squadron. Tbey would go
soonor, but it is not considered safe
for them to n-ahe the tiip during the
winter senson. One of the largci
ships will aoooinpany them.
On Wednesday evening, as the
Kokanee was approaching tins whari
at Pilot Bay, while the land was but
a hundred yards distant, George
Young, a deck hand fell overboard
and was diowned. He was standing
near the gangway, and while getting
the footblank ready to run it ashore as
soon as tlie wharf was reached, he
noticed, as be evidently thought, that
the lanyard attached to it waa jammed
under the large passonger gangplank.
Young, who was very quick in his
movements, seized hold of the rope
and gnve it a strong pull. It yielded
instantly, and he as quickly slipped
and fell backwards, going through
undo:' the chain whioh is kept stretched across the gangway. He made no
sound ns he fell, but three lifebelt-
and a lifo buoy wero thrown as soon
as he was sighted, which was as he
went astern. A bunt was lowered at
once but after the one glimpse of u
hand and a foot, which were all thai
reached the Hurface, nothing moie of
him could be seen. His Midden fall
evidently stunned him, as one life
belt, thrown from the unpor deok by
Purser Wright, wns within a fow foel
of where he came up and could have
been reached by him easily if he had
been conscious.
After it was seen thnt there was no
hope of finding the body the Kokanee
continued her trip. Captain Gore left
Nelson yesterday morning on the
Hercules, taking with him grappling
irons and a drag net, with which
senreh wns nept up all day yestorday,
although there was felt to be little
chance of finding the body owing to
tho great depth of the lake where the
accident took place.
Yesterday morning, on the trip
towards Nelson, tha sad duty fell on
Captain Eraser,of the Koknnoe, to inform the widow, who is living on
their ranoh, a short distance on this
side of the Narrows on the north
shore of the lnko, of the bereavement
sbo had sustained. As the steamor
stopped in front of the humble log
cabin which Young had put up last
spring, Mrs. Young, accompanied by
the four small children, all girls,
came down to the beach to find out
what had happened. As gently as
possible the teirihle tidings were
broken to tho mother, tho children
listoning, but not comprehending.
Mrs. Young was utterly overcome and
had to be supported into lhe shack,
On the way to Nolson a subscription
was taken up nmong the crew nnd the
passengers of the Kokanee, for the
j family, who nre believed to be in
very poor circumstance, when $110
waB raised. Last ovening Mrs. W.
Bntcholor, of the Hume Addition,
went up on the Kokanee to stay over
night at tho ranch with Mrs. Young,
so thut she would not be left alone
with the children in her state of
prostration.
| Mr. Young was 31 years of age. He
name from Scotland to Carberry,
Manitoba, in 1800. About five years
ago ho onir-e to Nelson and for some
time wns caretaker of the courthouse
nnd public school, lie owned u house
and lot in the Hume Addition, but
sold them fur .ISO early in June to go
ranching. He secured some land near
the Narrows which he worked all
summer but without much suocess.
Three weeks ngo he applied for a
position to the ollicers of the Kokanee,
and was taken on as deckhand, in
which enpucity ho nctcd until thc
accident whioh terminated his life
occurred He was a steady hard
working man.
His wife is also from Scotland and
thoy had four children, nil girls, the
eldest of whom is ten years old. As
far as could be ascertained last evening, Mrs. Young has no relatives
nearer than Scotland. While living
in Nelson Mr. Young was secretary
of tlie Laborers' union, he waB also a
member of the Salvation Army band,
but left the army when be went away
from Nelson.

Mr. Broderick, replying to Sir Charles
Howard Vincent's offer to raise fresh
troops, or do anything else to ussist
tho government, declined the proposnl
ind in doing so lengthily reviews the
British position in South Allien,

island, proceeded nil dny today before
Mr. Justice Drake. An hour was
taken up in impanelling the jury ami
the entire list of available jurymen
was gone over twice before this wus
idone. The crown feared that if union
I men sat on the jury their well known
dislike of Japanese as laborers might
prejudice them. It seemed impossible
for the crown to securo any but working men on the jury, however.
During the day the defense did not
attempt to prove that the Japanese
were not marooned, but triod to break
down tlie evidence of the nine
Japanese as to the identity of the
prisoners. All nine Japs swore positively, however, that, they recognized
Rogers and Desplain as the men who
bossed the marooning party.

Orange River colony bad raised nearly
its much revenue as was raised before

SAILORS AGAINST MOB.
Germans and Venezuelans Collide and
Apologies Now Asked by Both.
Port of Spain, Trinidad, Oct. 10.���
The British R. M. S. Eden arrived
here today from Lngunira, Venezuela,
and brought the following reliablo
story:
Last Sunday nigbt about SO sailors
from the German cruiser Venita be-
name ongnged in u street row at Port
Caballo with tho locnl population.
Police in eivilinn clothing interfered,
siding with the inhnbitants and the
light became genera], the Germane
making their way townrds the wharf
where they boarded the German
steamer Valcsia, moored at that place.
In the meantime, two petty officers
uf the Venita who ware entirely sober
and who were waiting nt the wharf to
tako tho Venita's boat, were attacked
hy the police. Thoy rcsistod and the
police woundod them both Oadly with
iheir swords. All the Germans ashore
wore unaimed. The wounded petty
ollicers were oarried on board the
Valesia by members of the Valosia's
crew. The populace and police still
attacking them with stones and
sticks. The mob then tried to board
tbe Valflflia but wero provented from
so doing by the captain and crow of
that vessel, ln the meantime the captain of the Valesia had signalled to
tbe Venita whioh was in tbe burbor,
the perilous situation of the Germans
und tbe Venita sent u boat loud of 30
armed men to the Valesia which thoy
bonded by the side opposite tho
wharf, not standing on Venezuelan
soil. The mob, estimated to number
1,200 persons, was still acting in a
threatening manner and having fired
a few shots, the commander of tne
Venita's boat ordered bis men to perform the motions of loading but not
to put cartridges into thoir rifles.
Hearing the rattle of the breachos of
the weapons, the mob disappenred
rapidly in all directions. Considerable excitement prevailed at Porto
Caballo when the Eden sailed. It is
said that the Venezuelan government
is putting the blame for the affair
upon the Germans and haa requested
Sho German minister to apoligize for
the sailors' conduct. It is believed at
Caracas that the German minister intends to ask Venezuela to apoligii'e.

The West Kootenay Company
Makes   Propositions   to
Supply Deficiency.
Matter Is to Be Submitted to
a Vote of the Ratepayers.
A speciul meeting of the eity
council was held yesterday afternoon
fur the purpose of considering propositions submitted by L, A. Campbell,
manager of the West Kootenay Power
Sc Light Company, to supply the city
with electrical power.
Two propositions were submitted;
one wns to supply the city with all
the extra power needed at the ru'.e of
850 per horse power per unuum, np to
-DO horse power, over that quantity
and under 500 horse power, Sir, per
hoise power per annum. Tlie siejond
proposition wus to supply the city
with nil the power it. could use, the
city to pny the company 45 per cent
of tlie gross receipts.
The propositions were informally
discussod nnd gone into fiom all
standpoints. These terms were offered
for a terra of from one year to ten ns
the oity might elect. The aldermen
fully recognized t.iat tho present
plant cannot supply more than 75 per
cont. of the light required by the city
and deem it necessary to obtain a
further supply from some oilier source
until the city is in a position to further increase its own plant. All tho
aldermen were of the opinion tbat the
city should ultimately own its own
plant of a sufficient enpucity to supply
the entire city with sulliciei't energy
for both lights and power, but, ut the
same time, thoy recognized the necessity uf making u temporary arrnnge*
ment in order to bridge over to the
period when the city will be in a
position to erect nnd maintain its own
plaut of a sufficient capacity for all
purposes. It was further decided that
beforo entering into a oontrnct Hint
the two propositions submitted by Ihe
West Kootenuy Power company
should be left to a vote uf the rate
payers, und then the responsibility of
accepting or rejecting them will bu
placed where it properly belongs.
The only wish of the piesent conncil
,s to supply the oitizcus us a whole
with nil the conveniences Ihey need
iu the way of electric light nnd
power. From u revenue standpoint
tlie second proposal properly safeguarded would give n larger income
to the city thnn its present plant produces.
The first proposal would in all
probability somewhat reduce tbe
levenue derived from the city's
plant. Both propositions have the one
object of improving the city and placing the electric lighting fin the whole
year beyond nny question. It was
eleaily understood during the discussion that no incrense of rntes would
he made ln any event.

Tbe Sullivan Group Mining Company is putting into rlVect n plan
wbich itsoflicers consider will solve,
so fnr as thoir interests are. concomed,
the question of malting silver-lend
or6H of a medium grade pay n profit
with lead selling ut its present price.
They have a mine with wide veins
of ore of a grade thnt, even at the
present price of silver and load,
yields 8'''* to the ton. At thc present
rate for freight und treatment of 81"
per ton, where the ore is sent to thc
American and the home smelters, lt
could not be mined and reduced and
leave e proiit. Iiathei thun nllow the
mine to Ho idle the company is putting up a smelter   and u lead refinery.
a short di t;i  from tbe mine.
As the haul is a short one the cost
of transportation is cut down to the
minimum. As the ore is to be reduced
in a plant owned by the company the
usual smelter profit, whatever it may
be, goes Into tbe treasury of tlie compuny for the benefit of tho stockholders. In the lend refinery the silver
and lead will be separated and the
lead lefined into pig lead. At present
no pig lead is produced in the
Dominion and the consumption
of lead and the manufactured
products of lead is about 13,000
tons per annum and so tbem is a
waiting market at homo. As far us
foreign markets are concerned tho
Orient will furnish ono outlet with
only a compariiitvely short haul to the
coast. As East Kootenay is tapped by
both the Canadian Pacific und the
Greut Northern railway theie will
naturally be competition for the haulage of the lead to the coast and tne
charge under such conditions will not
be oxborbitaut. From the coast it
cun be sent to the Orient on the trans-
Pacific steamers to whero there is a
inarkot wbich can consume nil tne
surplus lead that Canada produces.
In this market there need be no fear
nf the rompetition of the lead trust,
as thut instituticn .-.itilleally keeps up
the pric. of the mete] nt n bighor
figure iu the United States than it
commands in the natural markets of
tho worlii and its only desire soems to
be to control the home market, honce
its competition in the foreign markets
is not to be feared. Another factor
beneficial to the schemo is that a
chenp nnd abundant supply of coke Is
near ut band in lhe Trow'-, Nest Pass,
thus insuring a supply of fuel nt a
lower cost than is enjoyed by any
other oxisting smelter, as the others
nre further away und have to pay
more for tbe longer haul. Under
such circumstune.es It is palpable that
there cun be no doubt that the plans
of the company will be siie"&ft,sfiil.
Senator Tnrnur aud his associates
are the originators of the plan and
naturally they will profit largely by
Its success. Tho putting uf it into
effect will iuvolve tbe expenditure of

but as every contingency wns looked
into and careful estimates mado as to
results there is no fear entertained by
the munngement of the Sullivan compuny of tlie outcome. If they aro
successful, as their enterprise, oour-
nge, boldness uud originality deserve,
they will havo pointed out the way
for others to succeed by following
them on similar lines and doubtless
tbey will have a number of imitators.
If they succeed they will huve conferred a distinct and lasting good on
the community in Bolving a vexing
problem to which the only soultion to
many seemed to be to play a waiting
game until the price of lend went up.
This is the sort of gnnie which tho
St. liugeno and a number cf other

The Sullivnu management is made
np principally of Senator George H.

GRASPING AT STRAWS.
Premier Dunsmuir announces that
he will not resign for the present,
that he will meet the house and if ho
has not its confidonoe he will immediately resign. It is oontended by him
that be has kept eveiyone of his
pledges excepting that of taking Mr,
Helmcken into tho cabinet, but this
was not done because that member
had embarrassed the government with
want of confidence resolutions. Tne
weakness of the premier's position
can bo best gnaged by the rejection of
portfolios which he has offered to
difforout individuals, who refused
tbem because they felt that the
official exlstonoc of the present government would be very brief,and they
did not care to become members of a
ministry that is on the eve of dissolution. It is evident that Mr. Di ns-
muir is still taking the advioe of
Hon. Joseph Martin and is determined
to hold out as long as possible hoping
that somo circumstance or oontin-
Konoy mny arieo that will give liis
u-inistry a new lease of life. It has
been suggested that it would be impolitic to disband the govornment
until after a redistribution bill has
been passed and it is probable that it
will receive enough support to curry
such a measure. The anti-Martin
tuntiment ie so strong that just as
soon as the bill is passed thc liouse
will show its lack of confidence and a
general election will follow on party
lines when a liouse should be eleoted
which will give the province a stable
and capable government. With
tlie fear of erratic legislation and a
pospect of an ending to the too constant political nutbrtuks and evolutions, which made Hritish Columbian
uffuirs resemble those of a South
American republic during tlie past few
years, removed the province would
once more settle down to busiuoss and
there would result a general Improvement and a restoration in time of our
lost prestige. Until the legislature
meots it is evident that the premier
will have to conduct the goverumotal
affairs as best he can with a short'
ministerial stall.
between tlie British army and the
Canadian militia; and if we accept as
true the pioture which Major Richardson draws of their jealousies and disagreements in the wur of 1812, the removal, as far as possible of the cunses
will be the greatest boon that can be
bestowed on both. Of late there has
sprung up among Canudiun militia
offioers a feeling tbat their exclusion
from the chief position in tho militia
was unjust. Since Canada has shown
what ber men could do in South
Africa our voluntocrs have taken
Higher rank in the estimation of liritisli regulars and for tbat matter of the
whole world. Tho experiment of having a Canadian at the head of the
militia will now be tried, and thc
result will be awaited with confidence, which, let us hope, the result
may justify.

BRAIN-FOOD NONSENSE.
Another ridiculous food fad has beon
branded by the most compotont
authorities. They have dispelled the
silly notion that one kind of food is
needed for bruin, another for muscles,
and still another for bones. A correct diet will not only nourish a particular part of the body, but it will
sustain every other pait. Yet, however good your food may be, its nutriment is destroyed by indigestion cr
dypepsia. You must prepare for tbeir
ppearance or prevent their coming by
aking regular doses of Green's August
Flower, tho Javonte medicine of the
healthy millions. A few doses aids
digestion, stimulates the liver to
healthy action, purifies the blood, and
makes you feel bnoyaut nnd vigorous.

Charles Houghton und M. A. (Jifen I
ofthe Montana Hold Mining Company, ore in tlio eity from Veer I'lirli
on Arrow lake, This oompany ii
operating tbe Blue Bird group of mil -
Ing claim.'*, three miles north of Ueer
Paik. Tlio explorations aro confined
at present to the 100-foot level which j
Is reaohed by a Bhaft. The load,
which is eight feet in width, hus been
drifted for a distuned of 18 feet. 'lhe
ore shoot is the full length of iho
drift without a break. The ore is a
silver-lead,   averages about  ."<���> to tho
ton,  nnd enn be eoncenti nted   nix into
one. The principal values aie silver
und lend, but thero rue s'uail values
In gold uud copper. Negotiations are
now in progress for tho purchase of n
concentrator ol about an tons capacity
per day, the management feeling oon*
fl.lont that tlie quantity of ore in tile
mine justifies the installation oi such
a plant. Tnero is amp e wator power
within throe quarters of a mile nf the
mine which will be utilized in driving thc concentrating plant. Tho
lllno Bird is the best developed mino
onjtho shores of lower Arrow lake and
there nre a number of othei piopevtios
in tho same vicinity which promise,
whon developed, to make minos. Mr.
Houghton is superintendent, and Mr.
(Ironn is thc consulting engineer for
tho company, and their ihitsion in
Nelson is to purohnr.e supplies for the
mine, to interview E. IS, Chipman,
government agent, for the Kaslo riding, who was in Nelsou yesterday, 111
relation to putting the roud running
from Deer Park to the Blue Ilird mine
in hotter older so that tlio machinery
may bo hauled from the landing to
tho mine. This road, which is three
miles long, was built b.y the Montana
Mining company, three years since at
a cost of 13,000. The road needs repairing and a reduction of 9om�� of
tho grades. As it, is a trunk road
which opens up an Important mil.ing
section the peoplo of Deer Park feel
that tho government should stop in
and put the highway in good condition. Mr. Chipman. when interviewed by Messrs. Houghton and
Oreen yesterday, promised to look
into tho load matter and to do what
he oould toward socunug funds to put
the toad in order.
Twelve men were let out from the
Speculator at tho beginning of tho
wiok, rednoing the force to '-'(l men.
The reduction is for the winter only
and early next spring tlie force will
bo largely increased an,I a vigorous
policy carried out. During the winter the No. 1 level will bo pushed forward till the east voin is met, which
will then drain the oliicr workings.
Developments will bo continued on
both veins throughout the winter.
Tho Nc. 1 drift has noi yet out into
any largo body of ore, uut what lias
been taken out is of the linest quality of dry ore, cairying high values in
silver. The recent fine weather has
enabled the mine to bo go! into pretty
good shape for tbe winter. While it
is a pity to see any men let out from
a property, still it is one of thn exigencies of mining, and in the present
case will be only till spring.���-Slocan

Papers wore signed recently in a
deal for tho Ottawa, Springer creek.
whioh has been turned over by the
owners on a lease and bond to Jap
King, Tom Mulvcy and Fred Johnson.
The deal lasts for Is months, the purchase prioe boing understood to he
,4(),00ii. Tlio bonders sent up their
supplies and they will lose no time in
getting things into shape for aotive
development. Their intention is to
make the mine pay foi its develop
ment, and will accordingly mane
regular shipments during the winter.
Tho Ottawa has bad much work done
on it and is rated .one of tlio best
propositions in tlie camp. The v.-in
is a strong one and has been exposed
across tho full claim. Oro is showing
in tho main drift, values fiom which
promise a paying thing for the bonders.--Slocan Drill.

superintendent of the western division
of that company's business was in
tho oity yesterday, accompanied by
A. I*', l.ich and S, O. Cavill, of

In speaking of the company's western business Messrs. Sstout and Ford
said that gradually the carrying of
fruit from liritisli Columbia to the.
Northwest and Manitoba and the
bringing of dairy produce to the mining districts of British Columbia from
those pilots wore increasing. The
Express coinpany had made special reductions ou these lines so as to hi ing
the rates down neaily to cost. The
results had been very gratifying and
tbey believe the concessions was benefitting the country very muoh.
Spocinl rates wore also given on fish

Kootonay trade.
Mr. Rich and Mr. Cavill were members of the New England Fish company, already interested in thc halibut

Special Features of the
Florence   Hot   Blast
Our New Idea Deflector Fire Tot greatly increases the heatinf,** capacity of the stove, and in connection with the dellector* ring forces the
heat to the lloor. The base is hot, the lloor being warmer than wUh a
base burner.
The Hot Blast Attachment takes in the cold air through a duct at the
rear of the fire pot, thc heated air being discharged in a circle at the top
Ol lire pot, over lire, thus consuming all the gases and products of combustion. It can be operated in connection with tlie front draft door, Of
independently, by a screw register in lhe rear of base, insuring complete
control ol the stive with nearly perfect combustion.
lhe large Hot Air Circulating Fine on the back takes the cold air from
the lloor ami elects it intensely heated, through lhe top ad-'ing greatly
to the heating capacity.
Where the stove is operated according to directioiis'we guarantee il to
.-oiisunie all the gas contained in soft coal, thus deriving thc benefit of
all the heat in the fuel consumed, causing a truly remarkab'e saving of
lue ovei any other stove on the market. The stove will hold fire
24 to 48 hours without attention.
