Issued Twice a Week
I SURVEY RESUMED
II. W. Warrington, chief engineer
of the Kettle Valley line, with fifteen
men, stores and provisions, today left
for the upper North Fork country to
complete the survey of the road from
Bannock City to Franklin camp.
Today surveyors' stakes were driven
on Fourth street, from the river to
Observation mountain. In order to
obtain a bettor grade, it is proposed to
cross the Kettle river at Fourth
street; thence follow that thoroughfare
to the base of Observation mountain;
thence on the west Side of that mountain to the Granby smelter. It is
claimed that the grado from the Kettle
Valley line station to the Granby
smelter via the North Fork route
would be too haavy.
It was reported this week that C.
P. R. capital is behind the present
activity in Kettle Valley line circles,
- and that the option on the McKinley
mine is held by C.P.R. Interests,
These rumors, however, lack confirmation.
action has been taken are:
Wagon road to Flathead.

Purchase of gold and silver bullion.

and give notice of such further action
as they desire in regard to them.

hands of the secretary, A. B. Macken
zie, Rossland, 30 days before the date

the local boards, therefore not presented by the executive of the associa-,,
tion to the government.

government.

Annual Review
The Nelson Daily News will issue
its customary special edition on Dec.
31 devoted to a review of the mining
and kindred industries of the province
during the past year. The annual review has in the past been recognized
as the most comprehensive and reliable record of the year's progress and
development of the mining districts of
the province published in any form
It is the intention of the Daily News
to maintain the high standard of previous issues and, so far us possible, to
improve and widen the scope of the
review. Every phase of the mining
industry is covered, and the story told
is hasad upon authoritative statements
issued to the Daily News by the mine
and smelter managers of the province.
Every year since its first issue the
demand for this annual mining review
has heen in excess of^upply owing to
thu fact that hundreds of orders for
from half a dozen to one hundred
copies have been received after the
forms havo gone to press. This year
the Daily News hopes that nil orders
will lie sent in before December 'i**.
The review is issued at 10 cents a
copy, and cash should accompany the
order. The Daly News'annua] min
ing review reaches practically every
mine operator in the province, in addition to going to thousands.of investors iii these mines. Its advertising
columns consequently afford an exceptionally valuable medium of publicity
for miiiiiifiietiirers of milling   iiincliin-
ery and supplies, real estate, financial
ami mining   broker:,, wholesale   mer-
cliants, etc.

Forger Gets Six Months
A man giving his name as Alex
MeDougald, who has heen in the
city about a week, on Monday forged
Dr. Kingston's name to a Royal
bank cheque for S'0, made payable
to himself, and attempted to get it
cashed at the Sqtuue saloon. As the
proprietor was short of change, MeDougald only got $7 on it, leaving
the cheque nt the saloon over night.
The next morning tho cheque wus
taken to the Hunter Kendrick company's store, where it was cashed in
full. The fact that it was bogus,
however, was discovered shortly
afterwards; and Chief of Police
Sheads was notified. Tiie chief, after
a short hunt, located his man in a
West end saloon, arresting him and
recovering the full amount of the
cheque. At the trial on Wednesday
MoDunfiald pleaded guilty to forgj
ery, but worked the "sympathy
racket" to such an extent that Judge
Cochrane showed leniency by son-
tencing the accused to only six
months   imprisonment  with   hard
lahor in the Nelson jail. Chief of
Police Sheads left for Nelson with
the prisoner yesterday, Mr. Sheads
returning today. While in Nelson

It is 'aeported from Ottawa that
Premier McBride and Finance Minister Tatlow had really no business
to transact with thc Dominion government, but they went east to see
Montreal and Toronto railway magnates. It is said that they have
been in consultation with Canadian
Pacific and Grand Trunk Paeific
presidents endeavoring to evolve a
railway policy with which to meet
the legislature, and possibly after
the coming session appeal to the
country.
"The Polmatier sisters, who ap
peared' at Stone's Music Hall last
evening, presented ah unique entertainment, which included all the
elements of a first-class musical entertainment, witb a bright concert
flavor. Their program consisted of
soprano, cornet, and trombone so
his, quintettes, vocal and instrnmen
tul trios, and were tendered in a
style quite refreshing and picturesque garbed in costume. Mr. Chas.
W. Hitchcock in his dramatic monologues is worthy of special mention,
as his work is clean and up-to-date
in every respect, and showed for itself by the numerous encores he received. It is hoped that the music-
loving people of Fajgo may have an
opportunit to her this excellent company again in the near future, and
it is safe to say that the "standing
room only" sign will be vety much
in evidence."—Fargo (N. D.) Daily

You're uneasy, restless, without appetite. Still worse, you are thin and

When a married woman elopes with
another woman's husband it is hard to
tell just who is entitled to sympathy.
A woman who is tidy and attractive and can cook a good meal has not
much complaint to make of her husband.
When a woman goes shopping it
takes all afternoon, and when she goes
buying it takes her only a few minutes.
Nothing aggravates a woman more
than to get a present that she can't
find the price of, or guess pretty
near it.
Our idea of an ingraq*; is a man who

No matter how regiilirly' a man

Many a man's idea of real greatness

In simple faith their voices rang
Throughout the little clearing;
The good old fashioned hymns they sang
In tones sublime and cheering;
.The wanderer whose friends were few
Found warm and hearty greeting;
The young and old looked forward to
The pioneer camp meeting.
Their temple was the stately grove;
Its branches timed their singing,
And home the simple truths they drove
In language clear and ringing.
The speakers held up those to view
That were with sin consorting
And frowned upon the young folks who
Spent precious hours in courting.
And when the speaker's force was spent
The saint and humble sinner
Together in the ample tent
Discussed the wondrous dinner.
And all too soon the end drew near;
The days on wings were fleeting.
It was the bfjght spot of the year—
The pioneer camp meeting.
