Rich strikes iii   the high grade  mines    around   Greenwood   have  lately been-of so frequent occurrence that little attention is now  paid to them.   The latest is in the  Strathmore at a depth of about 140  ��������� feet.     There is from 6 to S inches  of gold-silver ore,  running up in  the thousands   of   dollars   to the  ton.     It is the richest ore yet discovered in  the   camp, and is free  gold and native silver.    Tho ore of  the    Strathmore   does   not   need  newspaper boosting, it will advertise the mine.

Tuesday evening Boundary Valley lodge No. 3S, I. O. O. P., held  tho first of their winter social  meetings. About forty members  and their friends were present.  The evening's entertainment consisted'of progressive whist. The  winners were \V. Mclntomney and  D. Wbitefrrd. ��������� Next Tuesday  evening the Initiatory degree will  be conferred.  Tho street committee of the city  council aro in a Berious difficulty.  Kimberley avenue, between Dead-  wood and Providence streets, already has two sidewalks, and there  is  an   agitation   for more.    They  have   jiot yet decided whether to  build a sidewalk up the centre of  the avenue,  or continue the sidewalks on Kimberley along Church  street as far as the hospital.    It is  probable the latter course will be  followed,   as a sidewalk is needed  on Church,  and  Kimberley does  not really require a third sidewalk  yet.  Gold Commissioner McMynn received notico this week that a decision had   been given in the case  of   Eastern   Townships Bank and  W.  II.  Covert vs Vaughan & Mclnnis.     The caso, which involved  tho water right on Fourth of July  creek'for irrigation purposes, came  up for trial ���������before'Mr'. Justice Morrison   at tho spring assizes here.  The decision   is against tho plaintiffs with  costs.    The question of  the. water right on Fourth of July  creek has been   before the courts  for some  years.     Tho caso was  complicated owing to the defendants having  abandoned their undivided  rights and relocated as a  firm, and some doubt as to tho-reg^  ularity   of  the   record of W. H.  Covert, ono of thejplaintiJTd.   It is  popsiblo   that  an;appeal  may  be  taken   from   bhc  decision  of Mr.  Justice MoiTujson.  , .Subject Sunday, evening in the  Methodist church here :' "Fighting  Dreams."  W.

PIONEERS'  Annual  SOCIETY  tho   Pioaefir  Nelson Items.  The Prince of Wales will not yisit  Nelson this year.  . The Bank of Commerce will erect  a building on Baker street. This  will cause Gib Stanley to move off  the old .lot, and in the future his  celebrated news depot will be on  the    corner nearly   opposite   the j  A Noted Veteran  Thos.   Luscombo,   who   has re������  sided in Nelson for several years is  ono of the most noted men in the  west.    It is 52 years ago this week  since with his regiment he lauded  in the Crimea aud fought through  the terrible engagements that destroyed the  flower of the English  army  in a few months.    After the  bloody   Crimea   he   fought in the  Sepoy rebellion receiving an injury  at the siege of Luckhow that ultimately caused him to lose an eye.  After being mustered out Mr. Lus-  combe lived many years in Bell e-  ville,  Ontario,   and for nine years  an   alderman   in  that "city, in addition  to refusing three times the  nomination for the mayoralty.    He  possesses more medals for his brave  deeds upon the field of battle than  probably   any  other- man  in  the  province,   one of them being given  by   the  Sultan   of Turkey.    Mr.  Luscombe has been married twice  and   his   five year old daughter is  -one of the most winsome little girls  in Nelson.     Although more than  half a century has parsed since he  crossed b'oyonets with the Russians  he   is still hale and hearty which  proves .him to  be one of the most  remarkable.men  living today, and  as~ a warrior for his flag and easily  the  most distinguished citizen.in  Nelson.    When  the Earl Grey,arrived in the city the brave old man  stood on the. wharf, his breast covered  with thesilent tokens of .valiant  acts,.done.that our flag might  live.     The Earl, graciously called  the veteran to his side and grasped  his   hand   but   did   not take the  batble-scarred  hero   into   the carriage.     That would   have been a  great touch,   for withoutthe grand  old soldiers of the past there would  be no governor-generals today.  |    'Nobility in Nelson     |  niost.:    Ab; the reception .quo lady  in the execssiveuess  of Her de3ice  If the", governor-general of Canada caught a cold from the effects  of the frost in Cajgary he certainly  lost it/ in Nelson for the fruit city  threw  up its hat and,danced upon  air during the four days that it  was, blessed with  the, presence of  sub-royalty, at .the city's expense.

There  were    between   thirty   and  forty  members present.     At the annual  meeting previous to  the  banquet  letters of regret were read from a  number of members who were unable to be present, including one  from  Jas. C.   Dale of Carmi, su-:-  posting that a committee be appointed to collect historical data of  the district,  as many of the older  residents were passiug away, and  in a few years it won Id be diflicu t  to obtain authentic information.  The following officers were elected  for the ensuing year:  J. W. Nelson, presidont; R. R.  Gilpin, vice-president, Grand  Forks; D. Carmichael, vice-president, Fairviow; C. S.

James A. Harris, of Greenwood,  aud Miss Bell of Kaslo were married in Nelson last week.  But few people from this city  visited the Kaslo Fair. The Kaslo  people should have advertised their  fair more extensively and had a  steamboat leave here later in the  day. If these two matters had  been attended to properly there  would have been 500 more visitors  at the initial fair in tho prettiest  town on Kootenay lake.  The fair now on in Nelson is a  great success. Tho-mineral exhibit is tho finest in tho history of  tho fair, especially the Boundary  ores.  Saloous or no saloons will be the  platforms at the next municipal  election in Nelson. -Pete-Lamout  will probably run for mayor on the  no saloon ticket.

THE SUNDAY LAW  Eev. J. G. Shearer, who is now  {ravelling in this province, ia probably the greatest expert upon the  proper observance of Sunday in  Canada. He has made a thorough  study of the matter, spending his  time and talent for the paltry sum  pf $3,000 a year in order to keep  the peopje pf thiB great pomjuion  from dying prematurely of overwork. His mission is a uoble one  and framed to benefit all except  the lazy. It gives the wage slave  a chance to sit down one day in  seven, even if he does work 20  hours a day fpr the other six, We  have just one objection to the  Lord's Day Act which we will  mention later on.  The    Sunday   Observance  law  which goes into effect nexb March  will do away with all kinds of  Sunday   trading,  except in such  things 3s   meals and   medicines.  This   will   keep  the public from  freezirg their stomachs with ice  pream, aud give all the bartenders  a   change to   go   to churqh.    Of  rourse it will be hard en. old booze  fiends who are not lucky onqugh  to have a bottle cached on the back  Btoop,   but they can make up for  the drouth on Monday,  Through traffic on railways will  pot be {-topped nor blinders put on  the Bun.     Eain  and snow will be  permitted  to do business without  interference.     Each j rovince will  regalate its own street railways,  The running of excursions for hire  or pleasure is prohibited which will  tend   in   large   cities   to keep the  people in their tenement houses instead   of   wandering   out in the  country and spoiling the grass in  the green  fields or breathing the  cheap   ozone   that  you find ' 'far  from*'tho    middening    crowd."  Horses,  carriages and 8m.aU boats  can  lie. hired for certain purposes.  Unavoidable  work   in smelters  will be permitted,   but the operation of   mines concentrators and  stamp mills is forbidden.    As tho  miners work eiyht hours a day thin  additional   rest will  bo much eh-  joyed   by ��������� th"  rock pounders and  hmgtlien the life of all mines which  will be much appreciated, especially  in the Slocan.   As tho scarcity of  ���������water   keepB   gome concentrators  idle part of the year, \he owners  may think the law harsh, but from  our observations in the Slocan and  other parte of Kootenay we have  noticed that concentrators observe  Sunday laws better than other kinds  pf mills.   .  amusement becomes a sin. This  clause does not apply to churches  because divine services are not  classed under the heading of work  or amusement.  Newspapers cannot bo bought,  distributed or published on Sunday,  but those engaged in getting out a  Monday morning paper can go to  work after G p. m. on Sunday. We  do not think this is right for Tuesday morning is soon enough to  bring out a paper. The staff of a  morniug paper should rest 48  hours'on Sunday-Resides a day or  two during the week for they seldom attain the ago of 100 years  owing to the strain of handling so  much poisoned thought.  We have always believed in  plenty of rest, and think that two  Sundays in a week would be better  than one. The people of America  are crazy for work and speed. They  should work less and rest, think  and read more. The only objection  we have to our friend Shearer's  Sunday legislation is the fines and  imprisonments mentioned in it.  Do away with these and the present opposition to the Lord's Day  Act will speedily become extinct.  In making amendments to the Act  we trust that objection 'will not be  overlooked.  in ;th&t gold-hannted section that  his brand of political dope had no  water in it, and would put the  Tories under the table very early  in the shank of the evening.

It will soon be necessary to enlarge the ocean in order to accommodate the war vessels that civilized nations are building.  Grand Forks is forging ahead  rapidly. Eor the first time in its  history, oysters in tho shell were  sold in that city during September.  Aritoros of the recent avalanche  of titled people in Nelson wc might  say that that city was always noted  for having lords, dukes, earls and  other blue-blooded personages tarry  within its walls. We well remember tho day lord and lady Boyle  came down the trail and signed the  book in the Nelson House. They  were not invited to a dance in the  armory nor did Keno Jack read  them a funeral address, or the  camp put up their expenses. In  the dining room the waiter came  and asked them if they would have  soup.     Lord   Boyle  ventured to  ask   what kind it was.    "Its   good soup, try some 1" ejaculated  the waiter.' We do not know what  ihe dash represents because since  the French captured the postoffice  in Ottawa an editor must not call  a spade a spade for fear the chap  with the blue pencil will mark him  off for publishing obscene literature.  federal premier had named^   was  not an accident.    The officials evidently   understood  the   policy of  their   superiors and knew what to  do.     The circumstance that they  have escaped  the penitentiary and  that they aro still in office Bpcaks  strongly on  that point.    It is the  desire of the Ottawa politicians to  create a machine exercising its influence at .the polls from the Atlantic to the Pacific.  These gentlemen   assume,   and   not   without  some show of reason, that if they  can control  everyp rovincial government they are practically free  from the supervision of the people.  The    federal   politicians,    united  with the provincial minister in each  province,   can  bring to bear upon  tho public a degree of influence  that is irresistible, and, as our experience with the Ross government  shows,   there is no such thing as  punishment'of political crime when  such a condition exists.    The consequences of such a combination  anyone can readily imagine.     A  great   conspiracy of expert politicians spending   millions   of the  public money, and  none of them  excessively honest,   can dominate  the country, and once the domination is assorted,  the rogueries of-  today at Ottawa will sink into insignificance before the operations  that will be undertaken by these  men.     A great menace to the Dominion is this combine to seize political favor and to use it against  the public.     Let the intrigue succeed and it will need a revolution  to get the grafters out of ofice and  to   restore   the   property  and the  civil rights of the people.���������-Mail &  Empire.

This situation is a  breach of the great Liberal doctrine  laid down by Edward Blake, under  which local and Dominion questions were to be kept separate. It  in also a menace to Ontario, because it declares that the Federal  power will be employed to restore  tho evil regime, and that, in the  event of success, the two powers  together wil be exerted with a view  of thwarting the efforts of the  people to express their preferences  on public issues.

This  means its capacity is nearly double  what it was , before. The grand  stand was crowded to its utmost  several times last year, and it is  believed that with greater accommodations in this respect, the  crowds which witness the races  will be much larger than at any  time in the past. Seven* thousand  dollars have been expended in enlarging the grandstand. The  stairway also lias been changed so  that it will come to the top of the  grandstand and avoid all the confusion which usually prevailed last  year around the center of the building where people were constantly  coming and going. Chairs are being installed to take the place of  the benches which were used last  year for reserved seats. This will  be a great improvement and will be  greatly appreciated by patrons.  These improvements in the grand  stand will be enjoyed by the crowd  which attempts to see the races on  Derby Day and on other special occasions. .With'7 this grandstand  tilled with 7,000 people, if the  horses are not able to run, it will  not be because they have not enthusiastic backers.

Eiraest X Cartler, Prop,  1  From SI   to 8695 is Calumet &  Heola's  record,  the latter figure  being 'today's   price.      It is some  time   since   it sold for a dollar a  share,  but ono man narrates how  he chuckled when he received that  figure for 1,000 shares.    The Boston  Courier of December 28, 1873,  gives an extract   from the scrap-  book of John C.  Watson, which  reads in part:    "So successful have  the Calumet and Hecla mines been  that it has not been thought necessary to make a-formal report, the  uhparalled dividends, so often repeated, being sufficiently satisfactory to stockholders.    As incidental  in showing the estimation in which  they were held as late as the close  of   1865,   one   of   our oldest and  shrewdest mining men, believed to  be thoroughly familiar with all the  mines of Lake Superior, w^iile contemplating a trip to Europe,looked  about for resources for the trip and  turned over his certificates of stock,  particularly those of his 'coppers,'  which might the mora readily be  spared, and  Calumet was selected  as the least likely to depreciate in  value, and the ruling price then being   $1   per share.     At this rate  1,000 shares were disposed of, and  it was believed to be so good a bargain that the trip would be at little  or no cost, the shares having cost  him nothing.    He believed at that  time that they would never realize  more.  "On reading the first newspaper  which ramee. tp hand abroad, he  discovered to his amazement the  record of Calumet selling at So a  share, with unusual activity. It  appears that while he was pursuing  his .way across the ocean, the scene  at home had unexpectedly and rapidly changed. One day a wayfarer plodding his way along  through the woods of the Calumet  location struck his foot against  some unyielding substance and  was laid out straight. He found  to his great surprise. that he had  struck a nugget of copper cropping  out of the ground. Removing  what earth he could readily, he  discovered it to bo very rich in  prospects, and for a price made  known his discoyery, the amount  not being disclosed to the public.  This discovery was soon noised  abroad and proved to be tho outcropping of the rich conglomerate  lode. The shares rose steadily and  in a few months reached $75, an  unparalleled advance in copper or  or other mining stocks."  -4  ���������      I  Criterion dam, penfltock and power  pipe line suffered still worse. An  immense log jam has accumulated  a short distance below the site of  the Wallace avenue bridge covering a distance of about 150 feet,  and tho creek- is cutting a new  channel at tho old Parks mill,  which structure it is feared will be  undermined. Communication with  the Eva mill has to be carried on  by means of the old bridge on Pool  creek while the residents of Gold-  fields have' to traverse the old  Cornaplix trail to the pack bridge  at the head of the canyon of Fish  river and t ike the Beaton wagon  road back to Camborne. The bed  of Pool creek is filled up with about  four feet of gravel,and a,portion of  the creek is following a course just  above tho new record office. The  damage is ' estimated at several  thousand dollars.  It is conjectered' that a cloud  burst is responsible for the damage  as the waters rose to a dangerous  height in, a very short while, and  it is a ��������� matter for congratulation  that the town was not flooded by  the terrible rush of water.

The peninsula has an area  of 1,200,000 square miles, and two-  thirds of it could easily be cultivated. The remaining one-third  is an irreclaimable.desert. The  climate along , thj coast is hot,  humid, and unhealthy, but in the  interior it is delightful and as  healthy as any in the world. There  are mountain peaks as high as  12,000 feet, very extensive plateaus, having an altitude of from  5,000 to 8,000 feet, with a remarkably fertile soil. There is plenty  of water for irrigation. The entire  tjrritory seems to be underlaid  with subterranean water courses,  and it is only necessary to bore  twenty-five or thirty feet to obtain  an -excellent well. The possibilities of the country are very great,-  and with a good government the  people of the cities would rapidly  accumulate wealth, and the plantation owners could raise .two  profitable crops a year.  The people of the United States  and  the   outside world generally  have very little conception of the  intelligence    and   ability of   the  Arabs, says Wm. E.

NOBILITY IN NELSON  (Continued from P.ige 1.)  iiiid'"������������������'forgetting' the   blue-shirted  noh'aps oi;asliin'g them to appear iu  t regimen tills,   a bomb  was thrown  i into tho camp that is still sizzling.  5 The west is* too new for snob rule,  .and   those   members   of the sub-  ; royal  party  who pandered to it in  r.Nelson    seemingly   stepped  aside  /from  the finely  drawn linos of ex-  fact   etiquette,   but,  perhaps their  ;.curiosity to see a western hoe-down  .was greater than .their judgment.  The Earl   of Grey and his party  '/did not come here to raise envy and  /Strife-"'in  the community by favor-  fing any  clique or band  of  tuft-  hunters.    They were here in their  jofheial capacity to meet all on an  i equal- plane.     It is stated that the  tE irl ��������� regretted the unpleasantness  ithat occurred   and   issued orders  jtjiat -In  future everything on his  ftoi'ir would ' be strictly official and  $aot swayed in the least by the de-  .fBire of upperteudoiri to bask iu the  -'sunshine of.blueblood to the ex-  idusion of their neighbors.  /���������. His Excellency.took great interest .in; kelson ' and consulted the  v.mayor .and others'upon a variety  yof 'mattcjffi concerning the district.  /He entertained t'hVrnaybr and his  jwife to dinner, and won the respect  iof all  with whom he came iu contact;1 . He was iriu.ch interested in  ���������itHe.' subject, of labor and at his request Frank Phillips gave his side  r<>f the question.    He no doubt was  .-fattjijiatr"' with the woes of the poor  capitalist.    Nelson now awaits the  .'coming of the Prince of -Wales, for  ,'it   is   not  ready to  exclaim, Sic  /transit gloria ni'undi !  COLD CALGARY.  ' Jn spite of the f icfc that Calgary  is 'eoniposed largely of Englishmen  jfche .Earl of Grey met with a re-  r'ceptiou in that cify that \yas below  ,'zero, and with man}' on the outside  jthe greai cow carnp is looked upon  as the abode of social savages.  The treatment was shabby in the  extreme, and as a representative  of royalty his ;Excellency considered it an insult to King Edward.  In roasting the. City .Council for  their lack of courtesy the Eye-  Opener throws in the following remarks :  We . think,    however,   it   was  rather a  health}' sign of the times  that the people of Calgary did not  fall, over, each   other to bow and  scrape   before the Earl of Grey.  The day of the figure-head is passing.     Outside of possessing one of  the plums of the British diplomatic  service, he has none of those qualities  which  arouse the interest of  the   people   iu   their public men.  We of the west would give the  king  himself a tremendous reception  were his majesty to honor us  with a visit, but few of us are hypo  critical enough to affect an interest  in   an  uninteresting understudy.  Grey has' done nothing to command  the admiration of the public.    He  is unknown in  the realms of art,  science or literature.     As a politician   in England he was a nonentity,  of no possible consequence  whatever.     He is not an orator.  He is not magnetic.    He is but an  amiable mediocrity of the lauded  proprietor class, fond of sport and  gifted with tho ability to look wise  as occasion demands, a safe, stolid  dummy,    peculiarly   adapted   by  range of thought for making live  minute speeches of the hot air variety at small towns.   Why, then,  should an intelligent and independent people be expected to run after  him, wildly waving their hats.  A man must have merit in his  own right, must have a prominence  attained' by his own efforts, to be  accepted with extra-special regard  in tho west. Trot along a Gold-  win Smith and see how the people  will raise their hats! Canada  never sent for Eirl Grey. He was  not chosen of the people.    Down  ing 8t;-ecii looked around for somo  phlegmatic nobleman of no special  individuality to -do the figurehead  act in the colony of Canada, and  happened to light on Grey. It  might have been Londsdale or Londonderry or Ilehester or Marlborough or Falmouth or Cadogan or  any ��������� old codger in the earl line.  Canadians uad no say in the matter  and it is silly to expect them to enthuse over the man who happens  to be the king's proxy fnr the  moment and who can feel but a  perfunctory and feeble interest in  the people whom he meets in his  official capacity.

A Real Gentleman  The Earl of Grey is a genius, a  diplomat- and a gentleman. Iu  leaving' his hotel in Nelson to re-  sumo his journey to the Coast he  forgot to shake hands with one of  the hotel clerks and sent back word  apologizing for the omission. In  addition he presented the landlord  with a valuable token of his visit.  Such delicate consideration for the  feelings of others stamps His Excellency as one of nature's noblemen, irrespective of title, position  or emoluments. If all guests  treated clerks and landlords with  such tender kindness what a paradise our hotels would soon become.  Waterproof Paints.
