PROTECT THEIR RIGHTS.
Interest in Berlin Regarding
Tbeir Relations.
Count Tliuu Hohoustoin's Remarks  ns
Thoy Weio Intended.
Vieunn, Don. 2(1.���Tho Abondeu Post
I publishes today a long communication
regarding the German interpretation
j of the answer of Count Thru Hoheu-
stein, the Aiistriitn Premier, to an interpellation in the Reicliseutth made
on November 30 on the subject of the
expulsion of Austriaus from Prussia.
Iu his answer tbo Premie.; said that
should the expectation, warranted by
assurances of the Eerlin cabinet,
that greater consideration will be
shown to Austriaus. not be fulfilled,
the government would not hesitate to
energetically protect the rights of the
Austriaus aud if necessary, adopt retal-
liatory measures. Tbe writer of the
communication says tho Premier's remarks are entirely misunderstood in
Germany, and Austria, adds: "Couut
Thuu Holieustein is ollicially and personally, as loyal a supporter, not only
of the treaty connection, bnt also of
the intimate relations of the two empires, as nny other influential personage in the monarchy."
COMMERCIAL SIDE OF IT
German Legislation is Raid Not to be Aim
ed at the Importation of American Goods.
Berlin, Dec. 26.���One of the lending
subjects discussed throughout ihe
week by the newspapers h��"e was the
present aud future relatiotis between
Ge- many and the United States, more
particularly the commercial side of
the questiou. The correspoudout here
of the Associated Press hns interviewed a high German official who has exceptional sources of information. Ho
said: "The reports current iu the
pTflse of both Coontnes j this subject,
aro laineutnhly iuacor ate. In Washington, thoy scouted to have jumped nt
the conclusion ihut Gerninny is on
the point of legislation specifically
against American agrloulurnl products
and they aro taking tbo bell by the
horns in order to forestall us. The
fact is that thero is no such intention
here, at least not in Governmental
c'.rcles. The meat inspection bill is
only on tbo point 0�� reaching the Bun-
deresrah which is the first legislative
s'ate, then it goes to tho Reichstag, so
it will prohah'y not pass, if at all, unit! the eud of the session next spring.
Even then the bill will not be franed
to hit American interests parlicularlv.
On the contrary. Mr. While, United
States Ambassador, at Berlin, hns re
ceived conditional assurauots that the
iutregal features of the bill will be
the abolition of the repoatod lo^al inspections of Amerioan meals of which
the Ame.icaus hnve complaiued. The
bill provides for a strict inspection
but It will be perfeotly fair aud will be
applied as squally to the domestic
trade as to the imported meats."
The officials of the United Statjs
embassy generally express the opinion that the Gorman Government sincerely desires to improvo its relations
with the United Slates and see indications pointing to u successful issue of
theRe efforts, though tho bills simult-
aueousy introduced iu tho House of
Representatives nnd iu the Senate at
Washington foreshadowing retaliation,
have been received with great
indignation by tho Government and
Govern".out press while tho liberal
and especially tlie commercial press
have unanimously expressed fears thai
the legislative action ou both sides
will culminate in a regular tariff war.
The Vorwaerts snys: "Tho greod
of the Agrarians hns disturbed our
relations with America for years past.
Under tbe pretext of protecting the
hoalth of Iho German people the importation of American products has
been prevented in spite of treaties."
The Vorwaerts demonstrates that German exports of sugar, texiles aud
wines to tho United States are worth
18,000.000 marks and says: "As tho
financially weaker of tho two, Germany will undoubtedly be the loser,
but the Agrarians ignore this. Provided the enhni.oed food prices flow into
their pockets thoy snap their i ngers at
the hungry masses."
The Bourser Courier, the leading
commercial organ says: "It is evident that the Uuited States is preparing for a commercial war with Germany, which the German Agrarians
seem to regard as trifling matter. We
hope the Berlin and Washington Gov
eruinents aro more conscious of the
irresponsibiies. We fear the German
export trade will have lo pay the
score. Tho federation of husbandry
has run up'
The Agrarians are jubilant at the
prospect of a tariff war which has
been their greatest aim for year. A
number of insulting articles have been
punished in their newspapers deriding
tbe United States in every way possible. Tho Krouso Zeitnng otuii throws
mud at the American people on account of the recent war and its results,
calliug the American troopB utterly
inefficient and saying tbe Government
is corrupt to the core. These utterances are however, exceptions, the ma-
NEWFOUNDLANDS CASE.
St. Johns, Newfoundland, Deo.
24.���Sir James Winter. Premier of
Newfoundland, returned here yesterday from Wasbinglou, where he has
been attending the sitting of the International Commission. It is understood hem that there is no prospect
of a settlement of the fisheries and reciprocity questions, tliOJgh a treaty
will bo signed about the end of January cowing the minor subjects in dispute. Tbis t enty will be transmitted
to the Canadian Parliament at tho
coming sessiou; but, if a settlement
of the above question is not arranged,
the Newfoundland Legislature will
not be culled npou to pass it.

Sir Wm. Crooke's Theory Regarding Wheat Criticized.
AMERICAN TAKES ISSUE
Mr. J. Ii. Dodge Says Tbat tbe English
Scientict's Statement] are not
Borne  Oat.
Albany, Dec. 26.���J. R. Dodge, for
mauy years statisticau of the United
States department of agriculture at
Washington, hns written to the Country Gentleman au exhaustive answer
to the address of Sir William
Crookes, before tbe British Science
Association, in which the latter predicted a great wheat famine. He
takes Sir William to ask for presenting inaccurate figures.    He says:
"Sir William Crookes declares that
thero is already a deficit of wheat area
of 31,000 square miles, or approximately 20 000,00C acres, rather unreasonable, iu view of the fact that this
area at the present rate of yield wonld
produce nearly 260,000,000 bushels,
while the European defioenpy, which
is ihe principal one in the world, is
bv tbe Beerhohm record, only !1I0, ���
000.000 bushels avorage in the last
eight years. Ho assumes the present
animal requirement for bread is 2,-
342,000,000 bushels of wheat, while

the period since 1806 average morn
than that figure, the compilation of
such estimates for seveti years by the
department of agricultural avoragiug

is almost as lnmo in his statistics of

quoted above, the product of 1807,
Ihe smallest of seven years is given as

foreoast that understates production
nearly 10 per cent.
"It would bo uncharitable to hope
for a scarcity of bread rations; still
our wheat glowers would not feel very
despondent over u prospect of good
prices.
"The Crookes view is a distinct en-
cou'auement to thorn, aud similar
views have been put forth sometimes,
apparently in the hope of raising
prices. Unfortunately when exaggerated a temporary rise of 10 per cent
is followed (as {be result of natural
reaction and from tho effect of increase of area, stiimdaed by temporary
advance in value) bv a fall in of 20 or
80 per cent as between IH91 and 189G

WITH RAPID STRIDES.
The   United   States   Making   Horsolf
Felt Commercially.
London, Dec. 20���It is no exaggeration
to assort that the foremost topic compelling attention in Em ope iu general, and in Great Britain in particular, overshadowing the drca ���>��� broils
ol domestic politics, is the remarkable
aggressive commercial prosperity
which the United States is manifesting, Hardly a nowspimor review or
a public speaker during the past month
has failed to notice witb wbat giant
stridos Aiiio.'iea is coming in the first
place in tho alignment of tho powers.
It is certainly the chief subject of
conversation to Lombard Street aud
on tho continental Courses. The inau-
a��er ot ouo of the greatest London
baiiKS recently drew an American
business man into his private ollice
nud snid :
"This is tho first time in the history of financo that New York has
been in a postiiou to dictate money
rates to London, Berlin nnd Paris."
The bank manager added that Loudon's purchases of American securities
wore featherweights compared with
the balance of trade in New York's favor.
Mr, James Bryce, in a speech before the Leicester Chamber of Commerce, sounded n Warning lo British
manufactories. He pointod out that
the business of tho United Stales
was developing along many important lines which Great Britain should
have held against all competitors.

The Rossland Miner did not forget
its brothern ot the newspaper fraternity Christmas eve, as the following

SHOULD   BE   A DIPLOMAT.
London, Dec. 26.���There is much interest here regarding tho choice of a
successor to Mr. Ethan Allen Hitchcock, us United States Ambassador at
St. Petersburg. It is considered that
the post demands the presence or the
strongest diplomat, in view or Ihe positions of the United States in the
East. Russia has seut one of her ab-
i lest men to Washington. I
Washington, Dec. 26. ��� Pre sident
McKinley received from the American
Peace Commission late Saturday afternoon the treaty of peace between
the United Stntes and Spain. In pre
seining this momentous document.
Judge Day, as chairman of the commission, said it represented the earnest efforts of the American repiesent-
atives at Paris and tbat it was submitted with the hope that it would
redound to the peace, credit and glory
of the American nation. Acceptiug
the treaty from tbe bands of Judge
Day, the President responded with
heartfelt thanks aud congratulations
to the commission as a bodv and to'
the members individually, He ipoke
of all that had boon accom plished and
of the happy method by which difficult questions bad been adjusted.
The formal ceremony of delivering
the treaty to the Prosideut occurred in
the blue mom and lasted half au hour.
The commissioner arrived here from
New York at 4:20 p. m. on a special
train. A great ciowd of holiday excursionists filled tbe rail oad station
and in o-der to avoid ihe jam, the
special was run in on a side track,
where the officials had e\i opportunity
to leave '.be train before it ontered the
depot.
Chief Clork Michaels of the state department wns ou hand as rep: esonu-
tive of Secrotary Hay and quite a
number of officials from the State, War
and Navy Departments as well as
friends nnd relatives wero there to
greet tlieiu. As they stepped from
the train thore was general baud shakings and congratulations and then the
party was escorted to carriages aud
driven directly to the White House.
It was noticed that as Judge Day
and assistants ca-ne from tbe train,
they were unencumbered with any
sort of luggage or documents but Hon.
J. B. Moore, late assistant secret ay
of state and legal advisor of the commission, carried with him a huge yellow leather case. This case never left
Mr. Mooro's hands, for in it was
the peace treaty which the commission was bearing to the President.
Four of the commissioners, Reid,
Davis, Fryo aud Day, took the first
carriage to the White .house, and soon
there after, Senator Gray, the remaining msmber of the commission, followed with Mr. Moore aud the precious leather case. The ladies of the
party also proceedded to tho White
House and joined tbeir husbands as
they went before the Presideut.
Secretary Hay was with the President when the party arrived at the
White House. The first greeting was
quito informal, the president coming
into the private vestibule, which leads
to the several drawing rooms. Judge
Day was the first to grasp tho President's hand, thou followed the personal exchanges. The President remarked
on the vigorous health of all the members. In the meantime Mr. Moore nnd
his precious hug had arrived iu tho
outer corridor, Before going inside
Mr. Moore opened tho case und from
it took the treaty in a morocco binding
about the size of a large encylopedia.
Then, joining Senator Gray, they proceeded together to the private vestibule, Mr. Monro carrying llio treaty
under his arm. All memhors of the
Commission lining now assembled, tl-e
president led the way to the blue
room,
Besides the President, Secretary
Hay and the commissioners thero w is
present Arthur W. Ferguson, who.
as ollicial interpreter had been through
tho arduous labors of Iho commission,
whon the Amerioan and Spanish repre-
sentatives were together, also Messrs.
Hay anil Gray, sons of the Secretary
and Senator, and several ladie* of the
party. The president stood at the further end of the room where the party
ranged around him. Taking the treaty
Judge Day addressed the President.
His remarks woro quito informal nnd
impromptu, brief, dignified and to the
point in assuring the President of
the satisfaction tho commission felt
that its labors wero ended in such a
way as to nive promise of the welfare
of the country.
After the Presdent's rosponso some
time was spent in informal discussion
of the trip and then all of the commissioners except Judge Day departed.
The latter remained with tbe President
for dinner intending to leave with
Mrs. Day at 7 :20. for Canton, whore
they aro anxious to see their family
After the long absence. Mr. Reid returned lo New York tonight. Senator
Gray wont to his home in Delaware
and Senators Davis and Frye remain at
their homes iu Washington. It was
stated that on the delivery of the treaty
to the Presideut that it would not be
made public at present, the usual
courtesy to the senate requiring that
it should he submitted to that body
before being made public. In tlie meantime it is in tho custody of tho state
department for safo keeping, althrough
copies of it will be in the hands of
the President for such consideration
as may be needed. It is tho impression that with the submission of tho
treaty to the President!]}* the Commission, the official existence of that body
will be terminated. Sronld thero be occasion, which is scarcely conceivable,
for further negoiatious, on any of the
subjectB touched by the treaty, it is
said, this would be done either by direct negotiation with the Madrid Government, or through an entirely new
commission.
NO PRESENTS   IN THEM.
Kingston, Ont.. Dec. 25. ���During
the past three weeks all letters sent
ont by convicts of the Kingston Penitentiary have had written across them
by order of Acting Warden Foster,
the words. "Christmas boxes will
not be received at this institution this
year." Friends of convicts are to
blame for this order as they were in
the habit of transgressing rules by
shipping in the boxes and parcels
goods of contraband nature, particularly money and occasionally other
articles, skillfuly hidden, of more dangerous character.

Property From Plunder bj

Sanitago de Cuba, Dec. 26.���Lieutenant Colonel Henry Ray. who had
reported to General Wood, military
governor of the department, that Colonel Francisco Valient, chief of gendarmerie, had been among the insurgents aud that several bands of robbers
were operating in the neighborhood
of Guantnnamo, arrived here today.
He repeats his charges against Colonel
Valient, declaring that they are well
founded. He admits that Colonel
Valionte wns tbe flrst Cuban officer
who nominally disarmed the men,
merely requesting permission to guard
their a'ins with a squad of his own
troops. Tnis request was granted by
Major Hairs, representing Lieutenant
Colonel Ray at- Sagua de Sauamo, Harris oven prr uisiug to supply rations to
tho guard. According to Colonel Ray,
Valionte, be ore starting for Sanitago
turned over to several Cuban Captains
the 600 rifles that wore stacked bv his
meu when they were disarmed. This
fact was only recently reported to
Colonel Ray. The latter on arriving
here saw Colonel Valienee and repeated bis accesatious Valiente declared that he had not armed the Cp-
linns, bur 'iad :���<��� rely given tha rifles
nun toe --large CI various ofiicers.
Colonel Hav claims that this explains the existence of the troubles
with bunds of robbers who have bo infested Ihe districts around Guantan-
niiio. in ouo.caso a Cuban major went
so fur as to order the proprietors of a
sugar estaie    not to grind.
Colonel Ray seut a company of
United States troops to guard the es-
lut \ whereupon the Cuban major look
to the woods with a baud of men
who have beeu ever since pillaging
estates nearby. As a result o* this
condition of things Colouel Ray's en-
(ire regiment, with the exception of
two coinpuuies, is uow scattered about
the cotiiitiy guarding private p.opevty.
Oolooel Ray suys he has tho names of
seve ul prominent Cubans who bave
censured Valiente fo.' luto'ng over
his a .ns, Valiente replied that he
had tbo anus u rrler gou-.'d, aud would
keep the ii safe uutil it was soon what
the United States wonld do. Moreover, Colouel Ray insists tbat the Cuban police who wore Bant by Colouel
Valiente to capture tho chief bandit,
we e worthless and proved dishonest,
as Ihcy allowed tho robbers to stop
undisturbed ill the next bouse to the
me where they were quartered.
Co'oml Ray will return to Guantan-

A RICH FIELD TO WORK.
In a dainty brochure intended to
call the attention of British
facturers to tho importance of Canada
as a field for their operations, the
Messrs. Haddou & Co., trading and
advertising agents of London, make
a point that is highly flattering to
the people of the Dominion. For
the last fiscal year the import and export trade of the United States aggregated the very large sum of f 1,843, -
000,000. It was the record year for
that country, aud mnch boasting was
indulged in as a consequence. Assuming tho population of that country to be 74,000,000, it would give a
trade rate per head of $24.91. The
total volume of Canadian trade the
same year was *ii!04,000,000. Our population is probably about five millions
and a half, which would givo an average per head of $05.27. That is, man
for man, Canadians do nearly two
and a half times as muoh foriegu trade
as the people of the United States.
Our neighbors are enterprising, do an
enormous internal trade, and are
among tho wealthiest of the earth.
Tbe figures are not procurable, but if
thoy wero it would probably be found
that in proportion to population Canada doss as large au internal trado as
the United States?" We accustom ourselves greatly to speak of the prosperity of that country; it would he better
for us if we thought more of the prosperity of our own, which will com -
pare favorably with tbat of any other
country in the world.
For tho Messrs. Haddous' purpose,
the comparison with the United
States shows even better than this.
Canada imports much more largely in
proportion to population. Last year
our imnorts wero $140,000,000; the imports for tho United States were
about $1100,000,000. The per capita
rates, therefore, would be $2f>.45 for
Canada uud $8.10 for tho United
States. We are not surprised that
Messrs. Hathlon & Co. insist so
strongly on the advantages offered by
the Dominion as n field for British
manufacturers. Of our total imports,
we took from Great Britain less than
$80,000,000, aud from the United
States over $80,000,000. Tho proforen-
ital tariff uow iu force will help
largely to alter these figures ; but the
full benefit of it will not be reaped unless the British manufacturers act on
the advice tendered them, nnd do
more than they havo yet done to court
our trade.
(New Westminster Columbian)
The private enterprise of Westminster's eourgeous nnd bustling citizens,
who aro building up the new town iu
the most prompt and energetic manner possilbe, will receive a considerable and important aid aud impetus,
iu the coming year, in the contemplated and promised operatiens of
the O. V. R., here���namely, the
building of a fine 180,000 brick and
stone station, work on which will he
oommenod before long, and the placing of Westminster on tho main line?,
by extending the railway around the
North Arm, to Vancouver. From present prospects, before another twelvo
months shall have passed, a finer, in
some respects, and, certainly, a more
propserous, Westminster than over
before will have arisen, like ningic.
nciiiu- from r]le as]ips, with scarcely a scar
of the great fire left to remember it by.

KASLO & SLOCAN RAILWAY
TIME   CARD   NO. 2
We are all in the dark yet as to
the probable outcome of the conference
between lb" Canadian and American
Commissioners. They have adjourned
over  the holidays,   undor agreement
to meet again early next month. Thut
the sessions are to bo continued menus
that a treaty of some sort is regarded
as within the possibilities. Indeed,
the usually careful Associated Press
correspondent at Washington siiyn
there will lie a treaty, but it is not
sure yet whether it will include a ro-
oiprooity clause. Tho difficult}' in re
spnet to the latter is the item of lumber,
although there is a strong indisposition to let in Canadian agricultural
products on anything liko even terms.
Tin old differences, however, those
that have been keeping both conn-
tries in hot water for years past, are
it soenis to lie composed. Tho Miner
is still at a loss to imagine how this
is to be done, excepting nt a great sacrifice to Canada, it thero are to be no
trado concessions.
KOSSLAND HOCKEY CLUB.
C. W. Chesterton of the Bank of
Montreal, was elected captain of the
Kossland Hockey team, at a meeting
of the Hockey' club held recently
A. W. Davis was made a member of
the executive committee, to succeed A.
W. Strickland, resigned. The Association decided to form a first and second team, under the leadership of Captain Chesterton, so that the members

themselves for the coining winter. The
first match with the Victoria Hockey
club will be held at the Skating rink
on Saturday evening. Dooembejr ill, at
8 o'clock. The club's sweaters have

soino in their colouring and design.

quality obtainable, are a deep crimson in color, and on the breast iu
white is the initial of tlie club, "K. "
The sweaters will be owned by the
club and the players will furnish their
own white knickerbockers and stockings. Tbe membership of tho club
is now nearly ."si and more are being
added every day, The officers are: .1.

Bride ami c. W. Chesterton members
of the executive committee.
- A great deal of earnestness and much
learned discussion aro being devoted,
by a number of our Provincial exchanges, to determining tho question,
When does the present century end?
The majority of those engaged in
solving (lie great problem insist that
tho Nineteenth century terminates nt
midnight on the 81 St of December,
1899, There is considerably more than
a yoar ahead of them before they are
overtaken by the   Twentieth  century,
A MORAL  IN THIS.
Pubisher.: of papers in the smaller
cities anil towns reoeive subscriptions
now ami then from oity linns who
have no interest iu the local news of
the paper, This paragraph in the New
York Times may explain (lie reason fur
these foreign subscriptions:
"A wholesale grocer in (his city,
who has become rich at iho business,
says that his rule is Unit when ho sells
a bill of goods on credit lo immediately subscribe for ' the locul paper of
his debtor. So long as his customer advertised liberally he rested, but at soon
as he begun tn contract bis advertising
space lie took the fact as evidence lhat
there was trouble ahead and invariably
went for the debtor. Said he, 'Tho
man who is too poor to make his business known is Ion poor In do business.
The withdrawal of an advertisement
is evidence of weakness thai the business men are not slow lo act upon.
There's nothing like it.' "

ing Sunday, iu slush. Notwithstanding this aot, however, the churches
were all well patronized and those in
which spooid services were held were
exceptionally well attended. Christmas dinners' were generally prepured
for Sunday although in somo homes
the annual feast of turkey and cranberry sauce eaino yesterday, Dinner
parties were numerous and it was a
particularly unfortunate bachelor who
was not the guest of some friend. At
the hotels elaborate menus had been
prepared. Tho Hume provided for its
guests on Sunday, the Phair and
Queens laying their b!g spreads yesterday. Those whose business it is to
cater to the thirsty ono and provide
the dry with irrigation wero not forgetful of tho gladsome ��� season and
lunches that would not have been out
of placo 011 tbo table of a prince, were
as freo as the air to those who bough*
of liquid refreshment.
As a rule the stores were closed ou
Monday for at least half a day. Those
remaining open did little business for
the walking was most disagreeable,
tbe slush being almost ankle deep in
the crossiug. and side streets. This
kept most of the citizens of Nelson indoors and the streets presented a Sunday appeurauco. The soft weather interfered with the plans of the rink
proprietors and although there was
skating Saturday tho ice was soft.
Yesterday a game of hockey was played
in the skating rink but the ice was
washed with an inch or more of water
and loss enthusiastic sportsmen than
hockeyists would have stayod away.
Notwithstanding tne very unseasonable weather, however, Nelson spout a
Merry Christinas aud looks forward, as
all good people should, to a happy and
prosperous New Year.
CITY TEAM WON.
by those   present.
Tho solosists included Mrs. Brougham, Mrs. Whalley and Mrs. Troup,
and Mr. G. Kydd. All tho singers
wore fully equal to Iho occasion, Mrs.
Troup's voice especially showing nn-
ticrable improvement. A word of
praise to the orchestra must not he
omitted, whose playing was a feature
of the service.
Tho Nelson Fire   Brigade  Hockeyists
Were  Vanquished.
The very sloppy weather yesterday
had its effect on the ice in the Nelson
skating rink and when the hockey
teams representing tho Nelson Hockey
club and the Nelson Fire Brigade lined
up for action there were little puddles
of water arranged picturesquely in
different parts of tbe rink. Underneath and around them the ice was
very soft which did uot assist the
players any but reduced the chances of
anything serious resulting from a full.
After it was all over it was iouua
that tho city team won by live goals
to three. These wero all tho games
the umpiros allowed but more might
have been scored us it was very dark
and quite oftou tho puck wont off ou
little rambles of its own without anyone having a clear idea as to which
course it took. But it was always
found sooner or later and the game
went ou.
Robert Carley acted as roferoo, being armed with a huge born which
looked suspiciously as if it had been
extracted from a Christinas stocking.
C. E. Beusloy and W. W. Beatou
strained their eyes in connection
with their onerous   duties as umpires.
The teams woro as follows :
City.���S. Noolands, goal; W. Duncan, point; 0. Hipporson, cover; Thos.
Duncan, Thos. Cowan, D. Rutherford,
forwards.
Fire Brigade ���G. Numi, goal; 0.
Arhchibald, point; A. Jeffs, cover;
W. MoLeau, J. Thompson, A. A. Pernor, forwards.
The game was valuable to the players for the reason that it gave them
just tho right kind of practice to tako
off the saporlluous flesh uud to put
thom into good physical shape. No
scientific play was attempted and it
was each man for himsolf with a vengeance. Everyone worked like u Trojan which made it a dashing and fast
game from beginning to end. In the
first half the Firemen scored twice
and tho city team thoro times. Iu
the second half each sido scored twice.
Judging tho men by thoir work yesterday Nelson will bo able to put a strong
team on the ico this soasoii and that
cup will surely come back from Rossland. The skating and stick work are
generally vory good and faithful practice iu the big rink should produco
combination play that will mako the
team invincible in tho Kootenays.
Thompson, Perrier, Rutherford,Cowan
and the two Duncans showed up particularly well.
An effort is being made to have the
Revelstoke team hero to open tlie new
rink noxt Mouday.
LOCAL AND PERSONAL.
Mr. J. D. McCaskill of Winnipeg
has arrived in Nelson to tako up his
residence here.
Mr. aud Mrs. H. Macdonald   gave

Everybody is invited,
A humorous incident occurred on
Christmas Eve when a man was observed groping for something in the
snow on Baker street. On being asked
what ho was doing, he said-he was
looking for a ijii! bill be had lost.
The turkey shoot on the lake shore
was well attended both yesterday and
on Saturday. A number of prominent
local riflo shots wore present. and
conspicious among them Dr. Hall who
brought home several turkeys on each
occasion.
The publio library which openod on
Saturday is already being well patronized, Fifteen books were taken out
the afternoon it opened, and yesterday
and on Sunday there was quite a number of readers of tbe various papers aud
periodicals.
Tho fun of a number of citizens who
wero enjoying a sleigh ride on Christmas night was brought to an untimely
ond. Tho sleigh ran into a boulder
near Gray's saw mill, with the result
that a runner was broken and the occupants of tho sleigh thrown out.
Fortunately no ono was hrt.
Three 0. P. H. officials, H. T. Wil-
gress, right-of-way agent; F. T.
Griffin, assistant land commissioner of
Winnipeg, and W. F. Tyo, chief engineer of the Columbia and Western
were in Cascade City last week and to
the Record said that work on the railway to Midway will be pushed al
once. No time will bo lost in constructing it Ifi miles further, to Rook
Crook whoro somo rich mines will be

Upon the occasion of his fourth
Christmas with the Church of England of Nelson, Rev. H. S. Akehurst
wus Saturday night presented with a
purse of lion, subscribed by members
of Ihe congregation. The presentation
took place at tho conclusion of the
choral concert ami was made by E. A.
Crease aud Fred Irvine, a committee
of tho congregation. In connection
wilh the presentation Air. Crease read
an address. Mr. Akehurst replied in
a most fooling manner after which an
impromptu reception was held.
He was on his way home Cbrismas
eve and in addition to several largo
and suspicious looking bundles was endeavoring to appear graceful under the
weight of a mammoth rocking horse.
It was snowing and he was glad
Christmas ciinio but once u year.
There wero others in tho street besides
him. Two of them were ladies and
as they passed him one of them remarked, "There'll be a hot time iu
the old town tonight." "Yes," he
repliod, "and I wish this rocking
horse was in the hottest old town I
know of. " The ladies looked at him
aud hurried on,
AT THE   CHURCHES.
How Christmas  Day   Was Observed-

Akehurst nreaohed ou both occasions.
Tho church was very effectively decorated.
The Presbyterian church was vory

The Miner has already made mention ot the fact that the Arlington
mine hud gotten out of its finanoial
difficulties. Tho Now Denver Ledge
adds tho following information:
'Several of the leading lights of the
old Lo Roi Oompany at Kossland have
been endeavoring for some timo to obtain the control of the Arlington,
Springer Greek's big properties. A
week nun the whole matter camn up
at Kosslnnd, but the deal failed to
stick, those now owning not coming
to terms. Tho working of the Arlington means everything to thut  section.
"Since tho above was written it is
learned that a second conference took
plaoe in Spokane, aud, on Saturday,
(Infinite arrangement were made for
developing the Arlington. Tho papers
have been signed and a strong syndicate, headed by Koss Thompson, of
Kossli nd, and Frank Watson, of Spokane, have obtained the control.
All obligations, including the $lli,000
mortgage, have been provided for, and
loO.UOO placed in the treasury for development. The new owners state
thoy will commence operations at once
on a  large scale.''

Yesterday a Miner reporters interviewed Mr. J. J. Campbell, - acting
manager of the Hall Mines Co., as to
the report that has been current in
town that the smelter is about to close'
down. Mr. Campbell stated that the
only grounds that existed for tho report, was the fact that the small blast
furnace was blown out on Saturday
afternoon. The furnace will be blown
in again on January 8, probably, and.
so fur from the management intending
to close down the smelter it is intended to make larger shipments from the
mine than have been made for the past
few mouths. Tho increased ore shipments have been made possible bv
the extensive development work that
has been pushed for the past six
months.
The Silvertoniini, of Silverton,
speaks out right from ihe shoulder in
support of tho town in which it
thrives. It says: Silverton has now
passed the uncertain stage, which all
uew mining towns have to contend
with nud pass through and is on a
solid basis. It has been proven beyond
all question that tbe mines go down,
that lhe\ nro numerous nnd rich, with
enough ore now in sight in the tributary mines to ensure years of labor for
nn army of men. Silverton is the leading town of the Luke region on a solid
basis, with a steady and growing payroll.

Victoria, Dec, 26���The full court
Saturday gave judgement in the appeal
in the Iron Mask and Centre Star case
in which the Coutre Star Company
claim that they have ou their laud the
appex of a voin which dips towards
aud under the land of the Iron Mask
and that thoy are entitled to follow
this vein clown to its termination.
Tho Iron Mask Company on the other
hand deny tho existence of a veiu and
say that if there is one it has been cut
off by a flat fault, and terminated
Mr. Justice Walker delivered the
judgment of the court concluding as
follows: "The parties here Iiutc
equal rights, depending, however, on
different titles. The Centre Stnr has
a right to follow a vein into the adjoining olaim The Iron Mask until
that vein is proved, has a right to all
oro within vertical linos of their
claim. I think it should be left to the
judgment at the trial to say whether
or not actual work should be done for
the purpose of elucidating any particular point. The Chief Justice authorizes me to state that iu his opinion the
Centre Star appeal ought to be dismissed. The appeal will therefore be
dismissed with costs"
Mr. Justice Martin, delivered a dissenting judgment, holding that the
Centre Star Company should have
the inspection asked for. Mr. Davis
asked for leave to appeal to the Privy
Council, but Mr. Bodwell was not to
deal with that matter at once, so it
will come up again before the full
court on January !).
Mr. Justice Drake yesterday delivered judgment in re ex-Mining Company
winding up matter By his judgment
he plaoes on tho list of contributors
Messrs. Tretheway, $12,000, King &
O'Brien $6,SOO. This case, hns been
in tho Court for somo timo aud this
decision will likely be appealed, as
tho question wus on before the full
court und wus referred buck to a single judge.

[Reported to The Miner by Wnldeinnr Will-
lm-li St Co., Mining Brokers, Columbia, uventtc,
Uomland, ll. C]
Roassland, B. 0., Doe. 86.���There
wus very little trading in mining shares last week ill consequence, of the
near approach of the holidays. Operators are apparently holding off until
after the advent of the new year when
a rush of business is confidently looked for: in fool many predict that the
year '09 will be the banner one in the
history of Rossland, Thero are quite
a number of mines nnd mining prospects on ihe eastern market for sale at
present, and from among tho uumber
it is more than likely thut a few will
be chosen hy Montreal or Toronto
capitalists into which will be put tho
necessary capital for development
purposes. Toronto is still Inlying Deer
Park but the price remains steady
around 1 !���'-. to 20 cents. It is officially
announced that work will be resumed
in the Iron Colt und (Hunt properties
at thu beginning of the year. We recommend bolh stocks for a turn. The
former, if bought around il cents will
certainly yield a handsome profit with
in a mouth or six weeks while Giant
around four cents will also be a good
money maker. There has been a boom
in Republic sharos thiB week and a
large number changed hands at prices
lunging from one to five cents over thu
quotations of the previous week.
The favorites hove been Lone Pino,
Bluok Tail und Tom Thumb. Wo
recommend any of the three. They
are going much higher in price and
should be bought now. Apart from
tlie trading in the shares of tho properties mentioned above tho market
hus been featureless.
