The death at Trail of Mrs. May
Johnson, wife of Elling Johnson,
was the occasion of a largely attended funeral here Tuesday. The
body was brought from Trail in a
fine casket prepared by Undertake
er Ward, and the filneral was in
his charge. Mrs. Johnson) until
shortly before her sickness, had
resided in Rosslund and had
many friends here. The attendance at the funeral was the largest
ever seen oh a like occasion in
Rossland. There were appropriate
religious services;
A Savage Aasault.
Morris O'Connor is in irons and
hiB victim, Thos. Lanktree, is suffering from a serious wound inflicted with an ax upon his face
fcnd head. The assault occurred
Tuesday at a cabin on Sheep Creek,
15 miles from Rossland. O'Connor had been drinking heavily rind
is said to have been wild with delirium tremens. There were three
others present, and one of them
Warded off O'Connor's second blow,
or it is thought Lanktree would
have been . killed. O'Connor was
brought before Capt. Fitzstubbs for
his preliminary examination this
afternoon, and the evidence is being
Wken its we go to press. |
The farewell social given last
Tuesday evening by the ladies and
friends of the Presbyterian congregation in honor of Mr. H.J. Robertson was largely attended and very
pleasingly carried out. Mr. Robertson, who has been the missionary
in charge of the congregation here
since June last, has to return to
Winnipeg, where he was stationed
before coming here—Rossland, in
the words of Rev. Dr. Robertson,
superintendent of home missions,
being important enough to have an
ordained minister in charge of its
Presbyterian congregation. The
new minister, Rev. Mr. Wallace, is
expected to arrive to-night. Mr.
H. J. Robertson has Won the high
esteem, not only of the members of
his congregation, but also of a large
circle of friends of other denominations who have attended his church
in consequence of having no place
of worship of their own in Rossland
as yet; and a host of his personal
friends gathered in the new building adjoining the Dominion Express
oliice on Tuesday hight to gife him
a fitting "send-off." Mr. Claybon
was chairman, and a musical programme was opened by Messrs. E.
Smith (banjo), Yates (flute) and
Fleming (violin), with a selection
that Was very finely rendered and
very much applauded. Mrs. Marsh
gave a very pleasing solo and received deserved applause. Mr.
Smith's banjo solo was encored, and
in response he gave a plantation
melody which set more than one
pair of feet tapping the floor. Mr.
Clute's song, "Rocked in the cradle
of the deep," was very favorably
received, and the instrumental selections by Messrs. Smith, Yates
and Fleming were exceedingly well
rendered.
Coffee, cake and sandwiches then
absorbed the attention of the whole
company, the tables being ably
presided over by Mrs. McKellar,
Mrs. Donovan, Mrs. Marshall, Mrs.
Beatty, Mrs. Emmet, Mrs. Connell,
Mrs. Yates and other Indies, who
are deserving of great credit for the
getting-up and management of the
affair.
The opening number on Part II.
of the programme was a pretty duet
by Mrs. Marsh and Mr. Clute, and
Mr. Robertson followed with a solo
which was loudly applauded.
Little Irene Lewis, only seven years
old, gave a recitation which may
be said to have brought Mown the
house, and in response to ii vociferous encore she sang a little
song in ti, pleasihg manlier.
The chief feature of the evening
was the presentation of a purse of
money to Mr. Robertson, as (according to the inscription on the
pocket-book) "a token of esteem
and regret at parting, by the ladies
ahd friends of his congregation at
Rossland." Mr. Claybon made the
presentation, and then Mri Robertson in a few well-chosen words
thanked one and all for the gift,
and expressed the deep pleasure he
felt at finding that they thought so
well of him. He said he had al«
ways been helped by the people of
Rossland, and it was far from being
a pleasant duty to part from them.
A duet by violin and banjo followed, and  was applauded.    Mr.
"Linger Longer Lucy," and Mr.
Clftvbon recited "The Fireman's
Wedding," both numbers being well
received. Mr. Clute gave " The
Midshipmite" in his best style, the
audience joining heartily in the
chorus. After another banjo solo
by Mr. Smith, the ever familiar
"Sailing" was splendidly rendered
by Mr. W, S. Weeks, who so aroused
the sympathies of his hearers that
they took up the refrain in real
old-time style. The last number
was "Nearer my God to Thee,"
which was beautifully rendered by
Mrs. Marsh, Mr. Robertson and Mr.
Clute, the lady's singing being
especially admired.
A vote of thanks to the ladies
and gentlemen who had contributed
to the evening's enjoyment was, on
the motion of Mr. Robertson, carried with enthusiasm. Special
mention should be made of Miss
Maud Kepling, who presided at the
organ, and also Mr. Smith, who
both contributed largely to the success of the entertainment, not forgetting the able manner in. which
the chairman carried out his duties.
It was well on towards the witching hour when the company broke
up with the signing of "Auld Lang
Syne" and the National Arrlhem.
Mr. Robertson left on Wednesday
by Way of Trail and the Columbia
River.
A New Enterprise.
An enterprise ol Considerable
importance to Rossland has-just
been started here by W. L. Ross, of
Bonner's Ferry. It is a manufactory for the purpose of manufacturing soda and mineral waters, ginger ale and all kinds of soft drinds.
Mr. Ross has had 19 years' experience in the business. His machinery is of the best improved patterns and is from Zwielush, of Mil-
waukkee. Mr. Ross' manufactory
is located on Center Star creek
just where it enters the town. He
therefore obtains pure water which
he boils before using. His drinks
have a finer flavor than those manufactured elsewhere and dealers in
that class of goods should give
him their patronage. Keep the
money at home and keep it circulating.

Two enterprising men have

MINING   NOTES.
Mines all looking well.
Prospects all looking well.
The list of shippers continues to
lengthen.

on the Good Hope will commence
work soon. There is some very
good ore in Bight.
A big strike made on the Virginia, which lies between the Iron
Horse and the War Eagle, is one
of the notable events of the week.
The Gold Hill, three miles northwest from town, owned by Daniels,
Devine & Welsh, has two shafts
sunk on the ledge. One shaft is
down about 65 feet and the other
about 10 feet and they are yielding
some very good looking ore.
The Jumbo, owned by Finch and
Galusha, has the biggest iron capping in the camp. The development is a 40-foot shaft. At the
bottom is $40 rock. A tunnel has
been started 200 feet below to cross
cut to the shaft.    It is in 20 feet-.
Alderman Shaw, one of Vancouver s wealthy citizens, was in town
this week. He came on a visit of
inspection to verify the Wonderful
reports of the richness of our mines
which have reached the coast. The
alderman was so pleased With what
he saw that he stated his intention
to invest some capital in one or
more of the profitable mining ventures in the vicinity of this growiug
city. 	
ltijr Deal for Cash.
Mason, Hoge & MeKinnon, of
the Trail Mining Company, owners
of the Columbia, yesterday secured
from Phil Aspenwall and A. E.
Humphrey an option on the Kootenay, Tip Top and Copper Jack.
They started back to Chicago, this
morning, where they will lay the
matter before the other members of
the company. If their act is approved the cash will be forwarded
and the deal closed. Phil Aspen-
wall's share Will be forty thousand
dollars.
The Commander.
The oWners of the Commander
possess a property that they are
not afraid to expend labor upon.
It is looking better every day.
The shaft is iioW down over twenty
feet on the ledge, which is widening out and dipping to the north.
The ore carries gold, copper and
silver, and recent  a'psnys give it a

Messrs. Dreyer & Hoffmeier, pro- value ranging from $37 to $5S per
prietors of the Columbia Brewery.
The present capacity of their plant
is four barrels it diVy. They Will
enlarge to keep pace With the
trade. They purchased their present stock of mall tit Tacoma but.

ore is solid'er ami better, and the
bottom of the shaft fairly  glitters.
Itrook and Situ.
Adjoining the Commander on
the west are the Brook and Sun
mineral claims, belonging to
Messrs. Glass and Miles McNally.
The Commander ledge runs
through the groUnd and they are
at no distant day destined to become very valuable properties.
The assessment work is complete
on the Brook and Sun! &nd in the
early spring the parties intend to
sink a shaft at least a hundred feet
deep on the ledge. That they have
the Commander ledge there is no
doubt, because it is easily traceable
clear across the properties. There
is plenty of capital behind these
properties to develop them.

had proven that this quartz' was
richer than the galena.- The vein

white quartz, which was considered
worthless; and as the galena bearing chutes tlid not produce enough

Rev.   Sam    P.   Jones   has   been
preaching   in   St.   Louis.     A   few
evenings ago he delivered a sermon
f    in which he said:
" Before I was ever a Christian 1
learned one thing, and want you to
hear this. I went away from home
and was robbed on the train. 1
had had all the money my friend
and I both had. He didn't have
tiny and they had got mine; so we
got off at a station. That was when
I was a. sinner.; and that was 25 or
26 years ago. He was a steward in
the Methodist Church; .1 was just a
plain, common, - iniple sinner; that,
is all J was. When we got, off at
the station we stayed around there
a moment or two. He said, 'Sam,
I wonder if there is a Mason in this
town?' 1 said, 'A Mason?' He
says, 'I can get some money if I
Can find a Mason.' I said, 'Ain't
you a Methodist?' He said, 'Yes.'
I said, ' Why don't you go to the
Methodists?' ' Oh, shucks,' said he,
I'll go to the Masons.' And he
Struck out, and after a few minules
Came back. 1 said, ' How did you
come out?' 'AH right,,' he said,'I
got it.' 'Where tlid you get it
from?' 'From a Mason,' he says.
'Sam, if you want to go to heaven
join the Methodists, but if you want
a hold down here join the Masons.'
So when I started out 1 just joined
both, and to-night I am a Method-j
ifet and a Mason, and I am getting
along well for both worlds." i

HOUSTON   AIMING  HIGH.
John Houston, editor of the Nelson Tribune is credited with an
ambition to represent Kootenay-
Yale-Cariboo in the Dominion Parliament. Newspaper men as a rule
make good legislators. They arc
(dose to the people, acquainted with
all their grievances, and not at all
backward in demanding redresses.
There is surely need for some one
down at Ottawa who will shake ujj
the sleepy officials and enlighten
them regarding the varied interests
of the greatest mining districts on
this continent. Houston, with all
his faults, is brainy and aggressive,
but, like many others who havi
slaved their lives away tit the
editorial desk, he is not much of
an orator. He should come tin
Demosthenes act—go down to the
falls of Kootenay outlet, fill his
mouth with pebbles, and snout at
the roaring cataract until his voice
is heard louder than the noise oi
the torrent.
ROSSLAND   ON   Tllli   MAIN  LINK.
The straightening and shortening of lines of travel from east to
west is making and unmaking
towne. The keen competition that
exists between the transcontinental
lines of railway makes the saving
of a mile of more consequence b
them than the saving of a village
and the saving of a score of miltr
of more consequence than a largt
town.
One of the objects of the Crow'.-
Nest Pass road is to save distance.
There are other good reasons for
building it-, but the idea of shortening the line is probably the principal one. To effect the saving in
distance desired the cotSjrmny must
build from the present terminus ui
the line destined to come via Crow's
Nest Pass clear through to Hope.
To build from the Pass to any
point in Kootenny and then turn
directly north to reach the present
main line again by way of the
Revelstoke & Arrow Lake branch
will only be a temporary arrangement. It shortens the distance
only a little.
Should this road be built through
the Crow's Nest I'ass by the C.P.R.
or any of its sub-companies it will
connect at Nelson with the Nelson
nnd Robson road. A line is now
being located from llossland to
Robson, or near there. Within a
few months a continuous road-bed
will extend from Medicine Hat to
Rossland. What more natural
then than to stretch it along the
mineral belt to the west of UB? A
branch will be started to run
directly east front Hope, and in
time the two long prongs wili meet
somewhere in the Boundary Creek
or Okanagan country, and together
will form a continuous line that
will be several hundred Wiles
shorter than the old line Which
passes through Katnloops and Calgary. The shorter line Will be the
main line-. llossland in on that
route.

Attacks upon them.
Lengthy departure notices of D.
B. Bogle were not to be expected
from those papers that were not
admirers of his, but for the Nelson

six-line notice is the unkindest cut
of all. The Tribune says it is not

"Several brutal scraps on the
public streets, and the bruised
.optics carried by several visitors,
seem to indicate a necessity for an
increased police force, or greater
diligence on the part of the present
body. There were neither arrests
nor complaints."—Kaslo correspondence of Nelson Tribune,
it has lieen the general belief, and
oft-times the boast of the B.C, Press,
that in this Province a large police
force was not required, the fear of the
law as administered by the courts
being sufficient to restrain evil-
minded persons from transgressing.
The parties implicated in these
Kaslo brawls may be newcomers
and blissfully ignorant of British
Columbia's reputation for stern and
speedy justice, and it would have
been better for the future peace of
that town had the police officer
brought the combatants before the
magistrates. Judge Sproat, of Nelson, who is a stipendiary magistrate for the Province, should take
up his residence at Kaslo.
that ground is not as thoroughly
prospected as it would be on smaller
claims; and that the more claims
staked in a rich mineral belt the
greater would be the number of
prospectors benefitted. It is also
claimed that the Government revenue from, each mining district would
he greatly augmented were the
width of claims reduced from 1500
to (300 feet, and that there would be
a larger amount of money paid to
laboring men for development
work. It would have been thought
that this question was settled for
all time, but once more it pops up
to give our legislators some sort of
excuse for another spell of tinkering at the mining laws. Of course
there have always been mining men
who never did agree to the enlargement of mineral claims to 1500 feet
square, and .1. Fred Hume gave the
House U> understand as much when
the matter was being discussed in
the Legislative Assembly. We believe, however, that if the question
could be submitted to the individual vote of mine-owners and prospectors the result would be overwhelmingly in favor of the status
quo, and the size remain as now—
1500 feet. It is likely that the
whole ground .will be again gone
over at the next sitting of the Assembly, and Mr. Kellie will do well
to ascertain as far as he is able the
consensus of opinion on this matter on his forthcoming visit to
Rossland—the most important and
busiest mining section in his constituency.   ,
COME  AGAIN,  FITZSTUBBS.
Some one must govern. If Rossland were incorporated it might, to
a certain extent govern itself, but
until that time arrives it is the
ward of the Provincial Government,
and Commipskmer Fitzstubbs, as
Agent of the Government in Southern Kootenay, is our director and
governor. The last two or three
visits of Capt. Fitzstubbs to Rossland have been productive of much
good. Under his direction the road
between Rossland and Trail Landing has been greatly improved and
put in good shape, a new oflice for
the recorder is being buil and a
lock-up residence for the exclusive
use of a certain class of individuals
who go into involuntary retirement
for the benefit of society at large.
Under his direction delinquent contractors have been compelled to pay
their workmen in cash instead of
timc-chec.ks worth no more than 90
per cent.of their face value, Under
his direction the placing of obstructions upon the public highway must
cease, and those who have offended
in this respect have been required
to remove the obstructions or pay
a heavy fine. Altogether Captain
Fitzstubbs has clone well by this
community, and as there is still a
great deal that needs a governing
hand in the matter of progress and
public convenience it is to be hoped
that he will come again soon and
carry on the good work.
SIX  IMIM.ItCIl   KKKT  ENOUGH,
They Say  ir.00 I'net  SqilitM   is  too  I'.Ik.
There seems to be considerable
complaint among prospectors and
mine-owners against the legal size
of claims under the present mining
laws, and they would gladly return
to the 600-feet limit. Among the
complaints most loudly voiced are
the following: That a tract of land
(especially on heavily - timbered
mountains) 1500 feet square is too
Unwieldy and cumbersome for a
prospector to handle; that it interferes With legititnate prospecting;
MAKING HASTK TO GUT KICH,
A Sabbathless Future'.
There has been a great deal of
correspondence in the Spokane
papers lately as to the right and
wrong of keeping the fair open on
the Sabbath day. When cut .down
to its real issues it becomes clear to
the most unobservant reader that
the case is merely one of dollars
and cents, The fair managers do
not want to lose even one day's receipts. This idea of making haste
to get rich which pervades the present generation of Americans is not
confined to the managers of fairs,
of baseball teams, or of race tracks,
but it is an evil which permeates
and weakens the whole American
nation. While we do not care to
argue the matter from a religious
point of view, we may point to the
assertions of eminent writers, both
sacred and profane, that the disasters and humiliating defeats of the
French and the retrograde tendency
of that once brilliant nation are
due to its flagrant disregard of the
Sabbath day. But leaving this
side of the question to ministers of
religion, we are surely justified in
treating the subject from a humane
standpoint. Our forefathers decreed that one day out of seven
should be devoted to rest, when man
and beast should cease from all
labor, except in certain cases of
actual necessity, such as Christ
Himself taught when He and His
disciples were charged with desecrating the Sabbath. No humanitarian
will deny that this day of rest has
been a boon to the toiling masses
down through the ages to the present day. But now the greed of gold
is usurping the broader sentiments
of Christianity and humanity, and
men work seven days a week and
305 days a year because they will
have the profits of lifty-two extra
days in their pockets, oblivious of
the fact that to some unfortunate
and starving brother those fifty-two
days' work, could he have obtained
them, would have meant food
enough to have kept'body and soul
together, and perhaps have saved
him from the ignominy of a suicide's grave. It is a bitter parody
on our nineteenth century civilization when some men may work for
the whole number of day" there are
in a year, while others mu,3t stand
idly by with their bands, in their
pockets. But the working man is
not to blame in this matter. It is
the companies, the syndicates and
corporations, who have no souls, no
hearts to wring, and whose officials
have but one aim in view—the getting of big dividends—and if an
employee should refuse to work
seven days a week he would be out
of ;t job forthwith and a hundred
applicants for the vacancy would
be willing to work fourteen days a
week should the bosses so order it.
Anil not only the workmen, but the
poor dumb beasts are subjected to
this unending round of labor.
Who's to say that the horse does
not look forward to the day of rest
as eagerly ay the man who drives
him? How many of the buildings
in Rossland can claim immunity
from Sunday labor in their erection ?
The sound of the carpenter's hammer has been heard " week in week
out, from morn till night," every
day alike ; plasterers, bricklayers
and their laborers as busy Sundays
as any other day. What feverish
haste displayed to finish a building
when once it is begun! So many
dollars and so many cents depend
on every day's delay. Canadians
from the east spending Sunday here
have expressed surprise at seeing
building operations in full swing,
and have been comforted with, the
reply, "Oh. everything goes here!"
Now that this custom has been introduced into British Columbia it
is to be hoped it will not take root
and spread over the whole Dominion. Canada will be nothing the
better for turning her day (if rest
into a working day or a gala day,
a ia France and the United States.
This is the thin 'end of the wedge,
and when the weekly rest day is
entirely lost to the working classes
they may wake up to the fact that
they have bartered away one of the
greatest privileges of their birthright, and it may require a strike
war of immense proportions to win
it back again. Let us have a day
of rest, if only for the sake of
coming generations.
HUUK    SMULTlNti    WORKS
May be*  Built by C. I*. B. an<l  Swuusou
Men.
It is stated by several leading
papers that one of the great Swansea smelting companies, in conjunction with people closely identified with the Canadian Pacific
Railway, would build an immense
smelting and refining plant somewhere on the Columbia river or
Arrow lakes. It is presumed that
the Vivians, the family of which
Lord Swansea is the head, and who
own the largest smelting plant in
Europe and possibly in the world,
are in the deal. Should this statement prove to be true, or only partially true, it will give a great impetus to every mining camp in
West Kootenay, and many a low-
grade proposition in the Trail Creek
and Slocan districts could be profitably worked. It is the general
belief in mining circles that if a
smelter is ever built in West Kootenay in which the C.P.R. is interested the site will be at Nakusp,

THK N. & V. 8. RAILWAY'S T1TLK TO
LANDS   AT UOSSLAND.
A case of great interest to Rossland people will come up before the
Supreme Court of British Columbia
in November. The Court will then
determine what rights the grant of
land to the Nelson & Fort Sheppard
Railway Company carried with it.
As soon as this question is determined the land adjoining the Rossland townsite will be in private
hands, and it is reasonable to suppose that it will be platted in
blocks and lots.

Ho Left a Latter.
They came to Rossland from
Kaslo about a year ago, and lived
in a log house on the hillside.
Their assets consisted of a fine four-
year-old boy and sundries. Harmony did not exist in their mess.
They made a mess of it. The husband decided that hair-pulling was
not to his taste, and concluded to
vamoose the ranch. So, one cool
morning, less than a fortnight ago
he slid gently down the hillside to
Lawry's store, where he left a letter
addressed to his wife, and then
struck the trail. About noon Mr.
Joiner, head clerk in Lawry's store,
discovered the letter on the desk
and took it to the wife—then grans
widow — addressed. lie doesn't
know the exact contents of the
letter, but the reader can easily
surmise. He said the woman nearly
had ti fit. She recovered; She was
not to be knocked out hy a little
blow like that. Two days later she
gathered up the kid and boarded
an outgoing stage. At Spokane
she learned that her truant husband was in the Cceur d'Alene
country. Off she put for the Cceur
d'Alene, remarking that when site
found him she would saddle herself
on to him so firmly that he would i Ben tlie Barber,
when one considers the lack of fire
protection, as the people are not
looking for accidents. The hotels
are all well patronized, tbut the
meals provided might, in soint
instances, be improved upon. But
then they are far from supplies,
Spokane and the Colville valley
being the principal points from
which they are obtained.
"When it is considered that in
the district there are more than
^,000 mining claims recorded, and
assuming that most of them are
located under the new law allowing
1,500 feet square for a claim, it will
ue seen that 100,000 acres are
represented in claims. However,
it is hardly possible that till of tin

A. II. Reveshecb leased a house
to one Mrs. Morton.    On Sept.   17
Cent was $50 in   arrear.   On  Sunday afternoon Sept. 29, Mrs. Morton,
with the assistance of one  Joseph
Brown, and for the purpose of preventing Mr. P.evesbech levying  on
the goods for rent,   moved all  her
household   furniture .to    the residence of Mr.   Brown,  and  on   the
next Monday   left for  San   Francisco.    On the 30th Mr. Reveshecb
issued a distress   warrant for  the
amount    of   rent   due   him   and
placed the same  in   the hands  of
that    most   efficient   officer    Mr.
Charles Gibbs, with instructions to
find out where the gooda were  and
to take possession of them.     After
a Httlw detective work Gibbs ascertained that the goods to the  value
of   about   $90   were   secreted    in
Brown's house, and upon interrogating   the   proprietor was  informed
that he had   purchased  the  goods
and   had a bill   of   sale of   them.
Gibbs,   however,   not  placing   the
utmost reliance in   Brown's  statement,    proceeded    to   remove   the
goods.    These facts coining out led
to the issue of a summons by Reves-
bech   against   Brown   under    the
Landlord and Tenant Act, for   the
recovery of double the value of the
goods.     On   Monday    the  matter
came on  for  trial   before  Justices
Newton and Jones, who, after hearing all the evidence, found that the
goods  had   been   fraudulently  removed, that Brown had knowingly
assisted in their removal,  and  ordered the defendant to pay $150, or
in  default   to   be   committed  for
three months.
