on motion of Aid. Smith aud Teeter,
and ordered that it be deposited with
the Royal Bank, Nelsou, for safekeeping.
A letter was road from the- Montreal
Star, drawing attention to its purpose
to advertise! the resources of western
Canada to attract honieseekers from
Europe,    Filed.
The board of works reported that a
contract had been drawn up lietween
the city and H. L. Fife, as contractor
for the croek work, but it was not satisfactory to the latter. The solicitor
would draw up any other agreement
desired, but tliis was the only one he
would lie responsible for to the council. i%
The agreement was thou read by the
Aid. Teeter stated th* contractor
objected to the contract because of the
false impression conveyed as to the
remuneration- for the work. The
speaker submitted the contract was
hardly in keeping with the motion of
last nieeting. '  .-
The mayor had talked with the city
solicitor on the subject. The latter
hnd been wrongly blamed for the mill
contract and he did not want trouble
in this. If he drew up any other contract, he wanted orders to that effect.
The solicitor was not to blame for
wanting to protect himself. The only
objection the mavor saw was the clause
relating to the penalty of 8*250, If the
arnrk were not finished by May 1. No
one ftanted a lawsuit, nor did the city
wish to play a cinch game, but a time
limit had to be set.
Matter was finally left to the board
of works to arrange with tbe contractor.

how manv meetings Aid. Madden had

Regret was expressed at the continued absence of the worthy alderman,

The Crow's Nest country is to get
the zinc smelter to be erected in this
country by Belgian capitalists, The1
visiting representatives took a.trip
to the Crow's Nest to look up a site
and this is what they told the Nelson
"We have  just  returned  from a
week's trip over the Crow's Nest line,
luring which we visited Frank,Feinie
and other places^   Our object was to
find, if possible, suitable sites for tho
location of a lead smelter and a zinc
smelter.   We were much struck with
the euqjmous quantities of coal to lie
found'hi'tho measures of the Crow's
Nest Pass, and the really good quality
of the fuel produced, when compared
with the usual American product. We
fully realize the fact that it will always lie an available and cheap source
of fuel for the reduction works of Kootenay.   We have decided to erect the
zinc smelter it either Femieor Frank.
We can only decide on which one of
these two points it will lie after our
return from a trip to Montreal.   We
will require from 30 to 50acres for the
enterprise.   The initial cost of the enterprise will be 1150,000, and it will
employ from 00 to 75 persons, with
prospi-cts of that number Iieing in-
creased to four or five times as many
by the end of three years.   Our idea
in   locating   the   zinc smelter where
clieap' Kiel can In* had direct from the
mines is lhat it is cheaper to haul the
zinc ore and the ziuc couceutrates to
the fuel than it would be to haul the
fuel to where the zinc is produced.
. "As for the zinc enriching plant, it
is to located at Rosebery, on Blocan
lake.   Work on   this   plant   will be
commenced just as  soon as the stio'.v
is off tin** ground.   The plans   and
specifications are all ready, and this
< will Im* the first of our plans to take

and at present we are not considering
the scheme. It might, however, be
taken up later if the conditions justified it."
Affairs are shaping .themselves in a
satisfactory manlier for tho Arlington
people, and there can be no longer
any doubt that they will proceed with
the erection of their reduction works
just so soon as the condition of tho
ground will permit. During the week
a letter was received from R.P.Rlthet,
president of the company, stating definitely that the mill would lie erected
this summer. He also stated J.Frank
Collom, managing director, was meeting with marked success in the Eastern States on his mission to raise the
finances for the undertaking. With
the spring opening up quickly, it will
not be long now till the initial steps
are being taken by the company for
the erection of the necessary buildings
and installing tbe plant.

Aid. Smith brought attention to the
fact that no steps had yet lieen taken
to ascertain whether the liank would
advance tho temporary loan of S20.H).
The money would lie required in a
short time.
The mayor thought the finance
committee should arrange for the
Aid. Teeter,'as the only member of
the committee present,-did not drsire
to assume that responsibility.
The mavor stated the debenture
monev was due ou April 1.
Aid. Teeter moved that the clerk
write to the Koyal Bank to inquire if
city could "borrow HflOQ, or less by
April I, with rate of interest antl time
of repay ment.'
His worship thought if the money
could be obtained from a local person
it would be better, to which the aldermen agreed.
Aid. Smith held the credit of the
city should bo good, if the back taxes
came In. Tlie city had met all its obligations.
The mayor said back taxes were
coming in right along. He thought
the loan could safely be left iu the
hands of tin* finance committee.
More discussion followed, no supporter to the motion being found.
Aid. Worden then moved that the
matter be left to the chairman of the
finance committee and the mayor to
arrange. Seconded by Aid. Smith
and carried.
Council adjourned.

Hendryx I'rocrti a SncceM.
Dr. Hendryx made the following
statement on Saturday regarding the
success of his process in treating the
ores of the Mountain Lion mine, iu
the Republic camp: "I promised the
president of the Mountain Lion Gold
Mining Co. under the following conditions to give an extraction of HO per
cent or better of the total value of the
gold and silver. The conditions were:
He was to furnish an average grade of
ore, ground to 80 mesh or liner. The
tests of thc ore have been on an ore
much lower than the mine average in
value, and only 80 per cent has been
ground to 80 mesh, while 11 percent
has lieen coarser than 80 per cent.
The extraction has been 83.3 per cent."
The owners made a profit of $3.-10 per
toil on their ore wheu shippiug to the
smelter, but the Hendryx process
jives them profits of 56.80 a ton.

Another new property entered the
shipping list of the division this week,
being the Black Fel group,on Twelve
Mile creek. It is owned by tho Bin-
ish brothers, who have been doing
sonic development on the property
lately. On Monday they shipped two
tons of ore to the Nelson smelter, it
being the first to be taken out. The
group consists of three claims and was
located in 1001, being situated south
west from the V & M. Upwards of
$1500 worth of work hns lieen done, in
the way of open cuts, tunneling aud a
shaft. Assays from the ore have given
563.40 in gold and 280 oz in silver.
Truu'.ilu Over u Cook.
All the men employed at the Enterprise came down the hill on Friday
afternoon. The trouble was caused
by the unsatisfactory character of the
food put up bv the cook, and also by
the hitler's offensive conduct towards
the men. The matter was afterwards
straightened out, but the mine will not
resume for a few days.

Silverton missed the time of its existence this week,owing to the vagaries
of the weather clerk. Arrangements
liad been made for Slocan hockeyists
to play return matches at Silverton on
Wednesday night, but the condition
of the ice would not permit. The str.
Slocan had been chartered for the occasion aud the whole burg was going.
There were four teams of players -the
ladies, the senior men, the boys, and
a combination of fat men, under the
the control of Geo. O'Cnllaghan. The
band was going also, to deal out triumphant strains. But the chief attraction was to have been a gaug of
rooters, 50 strong, organized by Larry
Knowles and Harvey Fife. They had
been carefully trained and were to
have been lieautifully decorated. They
were a swell lot. Ves, Silverton sure
missed a time.
Later. It has been decided to hold
the excursion this Friday evening, the
boat leaving the wharf at 7 o'clock.
All the aforesaid hockeyists.bandsmen
and rooters are hereby notified to be
o.i hand. The general public are invited to attend and participate in the
fun, the Silverton folk having arranged an elaborate programme of entertain ment.

A. J. McMillan, managing director
of the Le Roi mine,  Rossland, states
that the property and everything connected with it is absolutely free of encumbrance.     He    continued:   "The
amount owing to the Bank of Montreal iu connection with  the smelter
account is not a debt, in the ordinary
sense of the word, and is an advance
of a nature such as practically everv
smelter iu the country secures against
its matter in  transit and other liquid
assets.   Tlie whole of our machinery,
plant, surface improvements, and the
buildings, at lioth  mine and smelter,
representing an expenditure of over
£200.000, and, in addition, the mine
itself, on which there  has been spent,
I apart  altogether  from the purchase
I price, a sum of about £100,(XX), are
absolutely free and  unencumbered.
As working capital was not provided,
this A'300.000 had to lie taken out  of
the ground, and represents the profits
upon ore extracted.    In  addition, our
liquid assets, as you  have heard, are
largely iu excess of our liabilities."

There was quite a bunch of shippers
in the export list of the division fof
the week, four properties being represented, with an output of 56 tons. One
of these, the Black Fel, is a new shipper, its contribution being two tons.
Following it came the Ottawa, with
22 tons, also to Kelson. The Enterprise managed to get in a carload, it
Iieing billed to the Trail smelter.
There also went 12 tous from the Republic group, being a cleanup of the
dump by the lessees. It is a noticeable fact that most of the ore handled
from the camp results from the operation of lessees, who seem to be making their work prosper. As only the
rich ore is sent out, the returns are
uniformly high. Ore is coming down
slowly from the Black Prince, the soft
roads interfering. Shipments to date
total 341 tons, lieing slightly in excess
of the figures for the sams period last
For 1003 the ore shipments from
the local division amounted to 1330
tons, made up from 17 propertia**.

How tha. Cherokee Natlca Get* Over
the Race Problem.
The race problem In tbe Cherokee
Notion Is solved to the general satisfaction of the three races concerned
nnd the Intermediary mixed bloods, in
the location of homes the Cherokee
full bloods and negroes are mostly In
settlements. The Intermarried whites
largely are In the towns and territory
contiguous to eueh other. The Chero-
■"**« speaking citizens much prefer to
associate together.
In tbe nation there ure thirty schools
attended by full blood Cherokee children and seventeen by negro Children.
The negro blood schools are not so hy
legal requirement, but ns a. corollary
of their preference to live uenr each
other. The Cherokee und negro do uot
Intermarry or socially mingle. Two
seminaries aud au orphan asylum are
attended by full bloods and mixed
bloods only, the colored fiigh school by
negroes only.
In tbe Incorporated school districts
whites and Indians atteud the same
schools, and race prejudice and undue
feeling on either side are beiug lost
In fellowship aud friendship cultivated
ln tbe class room and on the playground.
Both sides are better satisfied ln the
combined schools than when they are
kept separate. Pull bloods seem to
mingle as freely with white renters and
their families of good character as
tbey do with mixed bloods.
Of the 38,500 citizens of the Cherokee
Nation the best statistical Information
gives ubout 8,500 full bloods, 3,200 intermarried whites, li'J.SOO mixed bloods
aud 4,000   freedmen.
The "Scrapple.'"
The Philadelphia scrapple season Is
now at Its height, und lu the three or
four big scrapple fuctorles of tbe city
about 50,000 pounds of the delectable
compound are produced weekly. Kncb
factory prides Itself on tbe peculiar
flavor of Its scrapple, Just as breweries
pride themselves on lhe flavor of their
beer. There are, indeed, scrapple connoisseurs in this city, men wbo, wben
a dish of scrapple is served to theni,
can say unerringly, "Tbls ls Brown's"'
or "Tbis ls Smith's" or "This Is Jones'
scrapple." Many Pennsylvania farmers, too, make thetr own brand und
take a pride In It and have a host of
followers who declare there is no scrapple like Farmer Alburger's or Farmer
Schultz's or Farmer Diffenderfer's, aa
the case muy be. Scrapple ls shipped
In refrigerator cars to many distant
states and in many different cities.
Philadelphia scrapple ls a favorite dish
upon the breakfast menu.
EukUh-'i "I'Bderpald"  Clerka.
English government clerks do not
serve nu unapprecintlve nation. A chief
clerk In tbe estate duty office at Somerset House receives $4,000 a year for bis
work during the seven hours of each
lawful day (except Saturday) from 10
o'clock till S. lie bas lately enjoyed in
addition tbe valuable privilege of work-
lug overtime at double rates, and the
opportunity has beeu turned to most
profitable account. One chief clerk In
six months earned $1,500 extra. For
tbis addition to his emoluments he remained on duty till 8 o'clock Instead ot
golug home at 5. Two principal clerks,
with salaries of $3,500, received $"'.25
each extra, while two assistant principal clerks, with salaries of $2,800, bad
$025 eueh.

There ls not a more athletic tlgure In

Hhode Islander that tbere Is a fascination ln watching blm on tbe senate

A Men Milk Tester.
Milk varies In viscosity with composition nnd temperature, and a new apparatus called the "locto viscometer"
Is regarded by French physicists ns
solving the problem of a simple test
for milk. It consists of a tinned copper reservoir mounted on a tripod, with
a line glass tube us outlet. When the
reservoir Is filled wltb u sample of the
milk the stopcock Is opened, and the
lime required for tbe escape of the
liquid ls noted In seconds, with the

Christopher Bishop Telia How Hla —itm

Health and Vigor.
Clark's Beach, Nfld., February ao—
(Special)—Among the splendid curea
made by Dodd's Kidney Pills in New
foundland is that of Mrs. Christopher
Bishop, ot this place. Tho story ot
her suffering ana cure ls told by her
husband as follows :
"My wite suffered for three yeara
with a weakness in the lowor part of
her back, followed by a bhiveriug,
causing weakness. Her logs wero
swollen from her knees to tho feet,
and ahe hud a pain In tho left aide
just under tho ribs.
• "Two doc-tors attended her. but
failed to cure ker, when shu decided
to use Hodd's Kidney l'ills. The r»-
stilts wei-e wonderful, and now, after
using fivo boxes, the swelling and
weakness are gone, and the pain la
gone with them,
"My brother suffered too from a
heavy pain in the back, and four doctors failed to give aim relief. F.lght
boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills i..ade
him a new man"
If you don't cure the pain in your
back by using Dodd's Kidney l'ills lt

Rnt catching in Chlcngo of late yenrs
Is becoming one of Its necessary nnd
paying vocations. Heariug thnt one of
the settlement houses down In the heart
of the city was to be the scene of op-
erntlons, we put on short sltlrts und
proceeded to the spot.
After waiting some time tbe rnt catcher nnd his assistant dually appeared,
and we Immediately rose to the occasion and Incidentally to the tublc.
From this stronghold we watched the
rnt catcher In chief don a pair of long,
heavy felt boots which he smeared
plentifully with some thick nnd sticky
substance. Then he placed himself In
the middle of the II.mi-, cautioning us
not to mnke n sound, while the-assistant turned out all tbe lights uud
opened the doors buck and front.
After waiting perhaps five minutes,
though It seemed more like nn. hour,
we heard a faint squeak and scurry*
Ing, then more squeaks and scurrying,
and in the dim light we could see little black bodies with long tails circling round and round tbe man In the
boots until it seemed as though an
army of Ihem wns there. The tapping
of tiny feet, scratching, rustlings, and
the little thuds of falling" bodies made
the a Ir hideous. We drew our dresses
tighter aud wondered what was going
to happen next.
Suddenly the assistant scratched a
match and lit tbe gas, and what a
scene was there! The chief rat catcher stood like tbe •''Pied Piper of Hanie-
llu," with a scrambling mass of .charmed rats about his feet. Quickly the assistant slammed both doors, and, while
the little animals were blinded wltb
the light, the two meu produced each
a pair of long pinchers from their pock-
els and proceeded to cntch the rats by
their long, wiry tails and deposit them
in two big sacks. As they uipped them
up, squealing and wriggling, we counted.. There were just ninety-six.
When the sacks, which were of leather, bnd been securely tied we crawled
dowu from our perch nnd nsked them
what tliey were going to do with tlietr
"Why," said the man of the boots,
"mebbe we'll skin 'em alive and sell
thc pelts."
'•What for?"
"Oh, fer kids' shoes and mitts," he replied.
When wc ventured to Inquire whnt
he smeared on his boots—not that we
ever wanted to use it—*henven forbid—
he answered:
"That's tellin', and we don't tell."—

A Disappointed American.
The government of Servln will rot
let the American who wanted to buy
the furniture of Klug Alexander's and
yueen Draga's bed and wardrobe
rooms at the Belgrade Umiak have
tlieni. He ofTered successively 300,000
francs, 400,000 francs and went up to
500,000 frnnc-s. King Peter and his
ministers think it would never do to
let tbem be taken over the United
States and then possibly over Europe
as a show. This is the first time they
have evinced a sense of the shame attached to the midnight .enterprise
which raised Peter to the throne nnd
Mascbin and the ministers to their
present grand situations. But as Queen
Nathalie inherits nil her son's fortune
those wbo slaughtered him ana Drngn
cannot prevent her bringing Alexander's personal goods nnd chattels to
the hammer. Should the American
persevere In his bid of 500.000 francs
lie will plnce the government of Belgrade in an awkward position. Tbey
ure, as every oue knows, desperately
hard up.—London Truth.

After a stormy general meeting of
its shareholders in London, the Grand
Trunk Rn.ilway Co. has ratified the
Pacific extension deal with the Dominion government. The bill, as modified,
will come liefore parliament, which
assembled yesterday, and the Liberal

so no obstruction will offer from the

It has been semi-officially announc-
,ed that the Dominion government will
not disallow Bill * No. 16 of the local
legislature, -cancelling the claims of
the C.P.R. to the famous blocks 4593
and 4594, iu East Kootenay. The
land is rich In petroleum and coal and
has been partly staked by private individuals. Premier McBride has promised-to give title after May 1, which
will result in a big rush of people iuto
that section.
Back i .let the Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational church dignitaries are holding conferences with a
view to amalgamating all three liodies.
The differences between theni are so
slight that they might at any time
cross the line and lie one family. The
amalgamation would result beneficial*
■ly to the cause of religion in the west,
where the folly of trying to maintain
rival ministers at less than starvation
wages is to be seen iu almost every
town. It would take all the people iu
the various mining camps to make one
congregation in each place, and then
the parson would have to cut out luxuries. The religious trust is a good
thing, so push it along.
On Monday there wi\s celebrated in
Loudon, Eug., the centennial of the
British &  Foreign   Bible Society, an
organization that  has ln-en character*
ize-3 as the backboue of Protestantism,
for all the Protestant churches in the
world look   to it for assistance.   By
tho society's efforts,the Bible hns beun
plaeed  within   the   reach   of almost
everyone, lieing published in over 400
tongues and dialects.   Iu 1804 but 20
per   cent   of   the earth's Inhabitants
knew might of the Scriptures, while
in 1904, largely through the efforts of
the society, upwards of 70  per cent
have heard the message.   The society
has published during its existence 180
million copies of the Bible, averaging
netuly two million a year; at a cost of
$65,000,000 and despite the severe opposition experienced  in some foreign
countries,   Few  secular   writings of
any description have ever reached the
million mark, and it is only the exceptional work that secures more than its
first edition.   Added to the labors of
tho British &  Foreign Bible Society
must be calculated the efforts of other
publishing societies aud companies,
then one can get  au idea of the immense popularity of the Bible and the
influence its teachings are exerting to
the betterment of the woi Id's condition.   Qtieeu   Victoria described the
Bible as the foundation of England's
greatness, for its   use meaus true lib-,
erty ^o tho subject.   The Bible is an
unique   publication- its    circulation
never decreases, but is always expand;
ing.   It will  be a sorry day for the
world when the situation is reversed.
