NELSON,   BEITISH   COLUMBIA,   SATUEDAY,   APEIL 29, 1893.  U A YEAE  $1400 SUBSCRIBED IN ONE DAY  SATISFAOTOEY EESULT  OF THE CANVASS  FOE SUBSCEIPTIONS TO THE HOSPITAL  The Citizens Are Almost Unanimous in the Desire  to Have the Hospital Managed by a Public  Board and Make Their. Subscriptions Payable  Accordingly.  The solicitors foe subscriptions in aid of the  establishment of a hospital in this city have met  with considerable success in their canvas of  Nelson's citizens.  Messrs. Gilker and Teetzel were armed with  the following document in their canvass :  " The  undersigned agree to pay the sums set  opposite their names towards the erection of a  hospital at Nelson, B.C.    All subscriptions to be  "paid  in  three  equal  instalments,   on   May  15,  July 15 and August 15.  " As two propositions are before the people,  the one for a hospital under local management,  supported, by the people and the Government,  the other for a hospital supported by the people  and Sisters of Charity, underthe management  of the Sisters of Charity. You are asked to  state the amount you are willing to  towards either proposition :  These are the autographs they obtained :  give  9-  Public.  100  25  10  12  15  10  10  10  10  60  25  25  15  10  10  10  10  30  15  15  10  10  10  5  15  10  10  20  Sectarian.  $200  25  $  Either.  200  25  R.

Mills, *  Mrs. S. E. Burton,  George A. Bigelow,  $847 75   $235 00   $375 00  The result of the canvass as far as it has gone  means that there is $1,222.75 of this money  available for the purposes of establishing a public hospital, and but $610 available for the purposes of a sectarian institution.  10  20  100  30  10  10  25  50  15 75  15  5  200  The fact that in one day's solicition they  secured no less than $1,432.75 is the best kind of  evidence that Nelson means to have that hospital. There is also another feature, and that is  an almostunanimous verdict in favor of a public institution under public management.  Hoard of Trade Meeting.  A  meeting, of the South Kootenay Board of  Trade has been called for Wednesday afternoon  wiien    a   good    representation   of   the   South  Kootenay country may be expected.  Nakusp on the . Rise.  The construction  of the Nakusp   &  Slocan  railway has had the effect of elevating Nakusp  realty.    One local real estate agent has received  wires from  the  Coast  instructing him   to  get  prices for Vancouver parties on  Nakusp pro-,  perties from Nelson holders,  but as the holders  here are confident,   they have as a rule either  decided to hold on or to sell at doubled figures.  WARDENS ON THE WAEPATH  FOE THOSE WHOSE  NEGLIGENCE  THEEAT-  ENS THE CITY .WITH DESTEUCTI0N  They Mean Business and Those Whom They Notify  Had Better Stand Around or They May Find  Theinseles Suffering Direful Pains and Penalties  For Their Disobedience.  Complaint having been made to Captain  Fitzstubbs respecting a number of dangerous  stovepipes within the limits of Nelson, the Gold  Commissioner at once communicated the complaint to the Fire Wardens.  The board is composed of D. B. Bogle, Geo. A.  Bigelow and J. Fred. Hume, and they decided  that1 instead of taking action with respect to  the individual causes of complaint, to make a  general round-up of the entire city.  They will set out upon their mission to-day,  and that the citizens may know just what  powers the wardens have and the dangers of  disobedience to their orders, a copy of the Act  under which they have the warrant is appended :  To visit and inspect, at all reasonable hours,  all buildings and erections. in the town or its  vicinity.  To direct and regulate in the town or its  vicinity, the position of stoves, fireplaces or  furnaces, chimneys, stove pipes and smoke  stacks, and the removal, change or alteration of  the same, or any of them, or the position or  condition of them, or any of them, and further  direct that anything shall be done by way of  precaution to avoid fire.  Generally to take such steps for the prevention of fire in the town or to check its spreading  as they may think fit.  If any person shall refuse to obey the orders .  of the fire wardens, or a majority of them, he  shall be liable to a penalty not exceeding fifty  dollars, to be recovered in a summary way  before any two Justices of the Peace, and in default of payment, the same.to be levied by distress of the goods and chattels of the offender,  and in default of sufficient distress the offender  shall suffer imprisonment not exceeding fourteen days^ arid the two Justices making the  conviction may direct the execution of the  directions of the fire wardens, or a majority of  them, at the expense of the offender who shall  be liable to pay the same to the person effecting  the same.  UNDER AN AUCTION HAMMER  THAT  IS  WHAT THE  G0VEENMENT HAVE  DECIDED FOE NEW DENVEE  Neither of the Claimants Will be Allowed to Take  Possession of the Property, So it will be Disposed of to the Highest Bidder at Public  Auction.  " It is understood that the tract of land at the  mouth of Carpenter Creek, the disputed ownership of which was recently investigated by ac  select committee of the Legislature, will be retained by the Government and disposed of to  the highest bidder by public auction. The  select committee decided that neither A. S. Far-  well nor Angus McGillivray had complied with  the conditions of the law entitling them to  ownership.  The above appeared in the last issue of the  Victoria Colonist to arrive in Nelson. The de-  cssion of the Government may be accepted from  the voice of the organ.  Aside from the personal leanings of the  people of New Denver towards either of the  former claimants, the news that the piece of  land will be put under the hammer andfdis-  posed of by public auction will come as w.elcome  intelligence.  There is, this difficulty/that unless the Government has already . declared the reserve on  again, the pre-emption of Arthur Dick will give  rise to another kick.  THEY AEE COMING HOME.  The Silver King Negotiators  Have Started on Their  Journey Homewards.  That cloud of mystery which for many  months has shrouded the history of the attempts to dispose of the Silver King mine, and  which set the whole province guessing, gives  promise of being dispelled at last.  William Hall, H. E. Croasdaile, and Secretary Macdonald, of the Silver King outfit, after  spending several months in Great Britain, are  on their homeward journey. In fact they may  be expected in the course of a few days.  While these persons have been away they  have maintained a discreet silence, and neither  by word nor by implication have they given  those on the outside an opportunity to form any  idea as to what is going on. Whether they will:  change their policy when plied with questions  from their friends is another thing. At any  rate the chances of finding out are greatly improved by their presence.  LITTLE LOCAL CHAPTERS.  Rev. Mr. Reid, the Episcopal clergyman in  Nelson, will "return to Toronto this summer.  He will preach his farewell sermon in May.  The general collection at the Presbyterian  church last Sabbath will be handed over to the  trustees of the hospital fund. It amounted to  $15.75, outside of the collection by envelope.  B. B. Johnston, of the firm of Douglas & Co.,  real estate agents, Vancouver, was in Nelson a  few days ago. He had been in Kaslo for a fortnight. Mr. Johnston intends to get in on  Nelson property. He says that it presents a  solid appearance, and bases his prophesy of a  continued and rapid growth on the fact that,  like Vancouver, there is a major proportion of  native born Canadians here.  ^M^^i^iM^M^i������^Mai^^^^a^^^^ I;&#^fe#:^^f&^������^  33E@>^������������i������^53____t_^^  A<______r_tAti__i__fc^___(_X_____f_^fc^^ l~''K-^''i--if^L^^Sg.^Lft^l^~^^  SVtf  ������?<&%  tan  THE  MINEE:  NELSON.

Balfour Says Britain's Slatesiaaen Have Committed,  a Great Political Crime and ���������Will he Responsible  for Irreparable National Disaster���������Gladstone's  Defence of the Bill Suiaunarizcd.  Gladstoner,has engineered the Home Rule bill  through its second leading, and despite the  dark forebodings of the Unionists secured a  majority of no less than 43.  Well on towards the close of the debate on  the second reading Balfour spoke at length on  the bill.     He  said to,., make  it  law would lead  ,0 - ���������      ���������  ultimately to  the disintegrrtion of the nation.  In closing, Balfour said :  " If you commit this great political crime you  make yourselves responsible for irreparable  national disaster and all hopes of a peaceful and  united Ireland will vanish forever."  Prolonged cheers greeted Gladstone when he  .arose to address the House.  He said that the Opposition evaded steadfastly the real question at issue���������How must Ireland  be governed if this bill be rejected ? When the  boon of self-government was given to the  British colonies, was Ireland alone to be excepted from its blessings? To deny Ireland  home rule was to say that, she lacked the ordinary faculties of humanity. In closing, Gladstone said :  "You cannot be surprised that wec have  undertaken the solution of this great question,  and as on the one hand it is not of the least  arduous effort of the Liberal party, so on the  other hand it will have its place in history ;  aye, not remote, but early history, as not the  least durable, fruitful and blessed among its accomplished acts."  The bill passed the second reading by a vote  of 347 to 304.  The  lily Not Overlooked.  The  London  Exchange Telegraph  Company  says that  the  property   of   George  Abingdon  Baird, or '* Squire Abingdon," will not go intact  to his family, as has been stated. A will, made  by Baird on board the steamship Majestic during his voyage to the United States, has been  found among his effects, it is said, and under its  provisions Mrs. Langtry will receive a large  property.

Twenty-one  head of horses which have been wintering at  the Meadows at the head of the Lake are there  ready for business and looking in excellent condition.  "���������'���������"���������A.: O.

While   working for  their  own  interest   the  Lardo Townsite Company has done a great deal  for that section of the.country and deserves the  thanks of everyone directly or indirectly inter-  : eeted in that section.

These have been laid before the fire  wardens and they have decided to make a general visit to all the "buildings in the city.  For some cause or other the fire wardens have  ",...'���������'������.'���������.''       -,, ' ���������������������������������������������  not been any too rigid in their enforcement of  the terms of the commission in the past, but  ^imw that they have made a start they may be  counted upon to do the thing up well.  ',���������"��������� ������������������'.tT1fi'6s6 whose places are- considered a menace  to the rest of the city must not consider that  they have been dealt roughly with by the fire  fire wardens should they be ordered to make  necessary alterations.  No man has a right to increase the fire risks  of his neighbor by his own niggardly economy  or negligence, and the wardens will see that  such things do not occur.  The Fire Warden are given extensive powers  under the Act repecting the prevention of fires  in unincorporated villages and towns, having  power to regulate the position of stoves, fire  places or furnaces, chimneys, stovepipes and  smokestacks, and the removal or alteration of  any of them. And generally to take such steps  as they consider necessary to check the spread  of fire.  There is also a rather stiff clause respecting  disobedience of the mandate of the majority of  the fire wardens, so that with'men in office who  will conscientiously carry out their full powers,  much of the danger of a conflagration in Nelson  may be avoided.  GET A MOVE ON  The much-vexed question regarding the ownership of the New Denver townsite was rendered  none the more easy of solution last week by the  pre-emption of Arthur Dick.  The unsettled state of things regarding the  townsite's ownership is working a great hardship to the residents of that place. The New  Denver people are heartily sick of watching the  " double shuffle " which the Government members have been dancing to the music behind the  scenes.  The reserve has been taken off the land���������the  reason doubtless being that it could not be  satisfactorily explained���������two claimants have  been fighting over the district for more than a  year. A Government committee has investigated the whole matter and tendered its finding  to the House���������and yet the position of things  remains practically unchanged.  If the House was not to be guided by its own  '.committee's finding in  the matter,   for what  purpose was  it allowed to take  the evidence  bearing on the, case ?  Either both claimants have failed to carry  out the Government provisions or else one of  them is entitled to the land.  The latest phase of the case is outlined in the  last issue of the Victoria Colonist, in which it is  announced that neither A, S. Farwell nor  Angus McGrillivray have complied with the  forms of the law entitling them to ownership.  APPEND, YOUR AUTOGRAPH.  The collectors, Messrs. Gilker and Teetzel,  appointed to make a canvas of the town in  soliciting subscriptions for the proposed hospital at Nelson have commenced work, and now  that a move has been made it will soon be determined whether the rhospital which South  Kootenay needs so much will be established or  not.  Those wiliing to subscribe have the option of  subscribing for a public hospital or for one  under the management of the Sisters, or if the  donor is indifferent the amount for which he is  willing to subscribe is marked collectable in the  event of either policy being adopted.  As the hospital will be for the general benefit  of South Kootenay the canvas should not be  confined to the residents of Nelson alone, but  should be extended to all the points in Southern  Kootenay.  A good example set by the citizens of Nelson  cannot fail to have its effect in other places.  What is worth doing at all is worth doing well,  and the people of Nelson will no doubt keep  that in view in subscribing the amounts which  they are willing to give.        '���������������������������"*���������  CURRENT COMMENTS.  Now that the Legislature has adopted the  system of sending one Cabinet Minister to England each year the tone of the Legislature  should greatly improve. Seeing the elephant  " at 'oine " should be a drawing card.  The report is current in Victoria that A. B������.  Gray has distanced all competitors in the race  for Deputy Commissioner of the Bureau of  Statistics.  Edwin Booth has probably faced the footlights for the last time. He lies at the point of  death in NewT York.  At the conclusion of the World's Fair the  monster Krupp gun, the largest piece of ordnance in the world, will be presented to Chicago  by Herr Krupp, and will be mounted on a fort  built in Lake Michigan, opposite Hyde Park.  Our own Mr. Kellie is reported to be on the  move homeward from the Capital. Kellie has  recently' been in Seattle, where he is reported  to have been conferring with New York and  Seattle capitalists in regard to mining investments in the Kootenay country, and has received, he says, definite instructions to at once  secure several properties in the Lardeau section.  Wonder what sized hat " our own " is wearing now ?  Col. Baker, Provincial Secretary and Minister  of Education, has gone to England to represent  the Province at the Imperial Institute, and will  be away several months.  By the way, the Colonel was not long in the  Cabinet before he located the plum.  'Tis said that as a reward for always voting  right, S. A.

"  " A stqut old gentleman with a stulfby- beard  that added to the resolute expeession of his face  was found at the Falls Fiew hotel yesterday  afternoon,;" says the Spokane Chronicle in prefacing a mining romance.  - This was Robert L. Dore, of San Francisco,  who came near revolutionizing the destinies of  the NorthrWest countries some thirty years  ago, and almost annexe British Columbia to  the United States. He made, a fortune at that  time from placer mines a few miles over the  boundary, which have since been deserted, and  he is now on his way back to rediscover them,  and-'expects to retrieve his waning fortunes  before the end of the summer.  Mr. Dore was extremely reticent about his  past history, but after much persuasion told the  following.brief story, which halTbeen fully corroborated by others who are familar with the  early history of the North-West.  "In the spring of 1863 it was my fortune to  discover a'���������placer' field' a few m iles n or th of the  boundary line. Satisfied of its richness I returned to this country and guided a little band  .'���������������������������'of friends and warkmen to the new fields. It  was the richest field I ever saw. My workmen  some days made me a clear profit of $2,000 to  $3,800, and my friends 'made snug sums by  working other parts" of the field. The news  spread and other bands rushed to the neA\ fields  until there were nearly 300 men in the valley at  midsummer.  "Then we heard that the British authorities  were after us for trespassing on their grounds,  contrary to the law. That roused the' miners,  and they swore never to be driven from the  field by any soldiers. Every, man was well  aroused and nearly all were old fighters who  could make ugly use of knivers or guns. As  soon as they heard that the troops were approaching a mass meeting was held and it was  decided to hold the ground. The miners were  organized into a rude little army, and no sooner  did they begin to realize-their own strength  than they began to talk of seizing the province  and declaring it part of the United States. The  idea spread like wildfire, and the whole camp  was wildly enthusiastic over the scheme.  " But the troops came nearer and it was seen  that we were outnumbered ten to one. The  men had declared rne their leader, and'I.saw  that fighting was useless, and our only hope  was to escape with our gold while we could.  We left the camp one night and marched to the  border, but the soldiers and customs house  officers were ohead of us and met us at the line.  They ordered lis to halt and demanded that we  should allow them to inspect our baggage. That  meant confiscation of our gold dust. Our men  got their pistols and knives ready and I led  them towards the line. An officer stepped forward. I pointed a pistol at him and said stop.  He stopped and the men filed past unto American toil. I lowered the pistol and followed  them. They gave a big cheer. We marched  back to California, and that is all there was  about it."  Mr. Dore is accompanied by T. E. Champion,  a young San Francisco capitalist. They went  to Bonner's Ferry last night, but would not tell  anyone where their placer fields were located,  except " not far from the line." They took with  them a wagon load of food, arms, tents and  tools, and say a number of men will soon follow  the m.    Wiped Out toy Fire.  Wallace.

He reports that a number of hard characters are pilfering from the construction company's caches, as well as from neighboring  points of supply, and boasting of their depredations afterwards.  The white tents which have hitherto marked  the location of Say ward are giving place, to the  usual wooden structures, common to this  country.  A party of surveyors, under the command of  A.:.E. Hodgins, of Nelson, are laying off the  town into lots. The beautifully level stretch of  bench lands running parallel with the Columbia  River has again attracted attention as a desirable point for a townsite in  this country when  available townsites are few and far between,  and now,that the Nelson &Fort Sheppard road  passes through the property, its position as the  supply point where the river service meets the  railway service, is now fully established.  Several  sub-contracts  have   been  let for the  railroad work, and Contractor Larson sent in a  gang of men who at once set about felling trees  and  constructing a large headquarter com mis- ,  sariat supply store for the railroad..  They slate that, at least one thousand men  will draw their supplies from and spend their  money at Say ward.  Several applications for hotel licenses have  already been received ; one confident man has .  already commenced the erection of his hotel,  and the <moral and commercial aspects of  "whiskey" here present themselves anew for  the serious consideration of all concerned.  The locatory and topographical party of the  railway, under Mr. Hislop, is still here in full  force, but it is under-stood that they will move a  few miles up the Beaver Creek in a few days  when the transport train comes in. It is understood that Mr. Roberts, the chief engineer,  wiped out the entire location as already laid  down, and directed the survev of a new line  still closer to the town.  Mr. W. M. Newton, J.P., formerly of Pilot  Boy, is in charge of the townsite in the interests  of the "West Kootenay Land Company, Ltd."  and is putting up temporary offices preliminary  to erecting a two-storey building for the company on the adjoining lot.

Lardeau City is not a town competing with several other points in the same district.  It is naturally the best   point  for supplying the surrounding   mining country, and there is a.  brighter prospect for it to-day than there was for Kaslo a year ago.  Lots purchased in   the latter place last year have sold this summer at an advance of from two  to a thousand per cent.

George A. Bigelow was much disappointed  when he returned from Bonner's Ferrv last  evening and discovered that the movement to  secure a public hospital for Nelson had resulted  as previous endeavors to the same end for the  past two years have resulted, in producing  nothing more than talk.  " South Kootenay needs such an institution,"  he said, in conversation with a Miner representative, " and if the people of Nelson are  going to do nothing but talk they had better  stand aside and allow the more public-spirited  citizens of other Lake points to do what they  have been promising to do for so long. The  people of Nelson have received every encouragement from the Provincial Government to carry  the thing through, but in two years they have  not made anything like progress towards locating the institution in Nelson. There is a Government site ready, a Government grant waiting, but instead of taking advantage of these,  they have opened a squabble on religious matters, which should not in any way be allowed to  creep into the  matter.  " If the people of Nelson would get a move on  and secure the hospital they could spend next  summer in squabbling oyer religious matters if  they chose. For my part I have some money  ready for   that hospital scheme,  but if those  interested do not get down to work within a  week they will not get it, because I have promised Kaslo people that they cau have my subscription if Nelson does not make a move in the  meantime.     ������������������ ��������� .. ������������������ .'   ..������������������     ''���������    , v  LARSON HERE AND AWAY.

It is now an assured fact that a mill will be  put in on the sky line and worked within the  next four months.  The Neosha has changed hand and will be  worked within a few weeks.

Oddfellows' Church Parade���������They  Attend the Presbyterian Church in a Body.  The Nelson Lodge of Oddfellows attended  divine service in a body at the Presbyterian  church on Sunday morning. The members  turned out in good force, and paraded from  their lodge room.  Rev. T. H. Rogers preached an interesting  sermon in which he outlined the nature of the  noble purposes for which the brotherhood of  Oddfellows had been organized in 1819, and also  giving a summary of the present grand workings oi; the order. The object of their brotherhood were tersely explained in their badge of  unity. On reference to the annual reports of  the Supreme Grand Lodge it would be found  that the Oddfellows possessed a larger membership throughout America than any other  society. Their donations for charities alone  last year exceeded $3,000,000.  In British Columbia the Oddfellows had a  membership of 1470, and their donations to the  families of deceased members exceeded $10,000  dining the past year.  THE BAND'S FIEST ASSIGNMENT  Will he a Much-Needed Rehearsal in the Silence of  I&aslo's Woods.  The aggregation of wind-jammers who are to  make music for the Kaslo variety theatre  arrived in Kaslo yesterday. The musicians  were picked up " here and there " around  Spokane, and when they got to Bonner's Ferry  and attempted the ensemble Manager Holland  was visibly impressed with the fact that there  was a stirring individuality about each of his  musical prodigies which gave the entire rendition the nature of a half-hour's go-as-you-please  competition.  The bandmaster started them out fairly on  what the big fellow with  the little drum called  " Some of Gilmour's high-falutin' stage music,"  and in a few minutes one of the cornets was  struggling with the ���������" Star-Spangled Banner,"  another was blowing out bad music about  " Marching Through Georgia," while the little  chap with the big horn was endeavoring, with  tears in his eyes, to toot the time for both  " Yankee Doodle " and 4< Home, Sweet Home."  When the boat reached Kaslo the musicians  wished to stir the citizens with their medley of  melodies as several hundred were ready to  greet them, but Manager Holland wisely prevented them, at the same time intimating that  as a preliminary he would take them out in the  bush beyond ear-shot and rehearse them.  EiOcal Alining Notes.  Messrs. Kellie & Co., the owners of the Dandy  mine, have decided to do considerable work on  their mine this summer, commencing as soon as  they can get provisions in.      They  continue to  have unlimited confidence in their property.  The Poorman will be worked again this summer on a more extensive scale, but the owners  have not decided as yet just what amount of  work will be done.  Bob Yuill, who has a commission to see that  no one carries off Toad Mountain in the night,  has serious intentions of converting his ranch  into a townsite and putting it on the market.  Presbyterian  Church Services.  Andrew Nesbit Bogle, brother of D. B. Bogle,  the formerproprietor of The Miner, a graduate  of Edinburgh University, is spending a few days  in Nelson. Mr. Bogle will probably occupy the  pulpit of the Presbyterian church to-morrow  evening in the absence of Rev. Thomas H.  Rogers, who purposes holding services in Kaslo  in the absence of Rev. Mr. Martin, who has not  yet returned to his post.  Charles Olsen, of Ainsworth, is reported to  have joined the ranks of the benedicts. The  bride is said to be Miss Anna Anderson.

Keefer, G.E., who has charge of  the engineering work in connection with the  Kootenay reclamation scheme, is registered at  the Phair. -   " "     '  In conversation with a Miner reporter he  announced that work would be resumed on the  great dyke in a few days,.as work was only delayed waiting the arrival of some renewals on  the big dredger which were shipped by way of  Bonner's Ferry.  Whencthis season's  work is  completed Mr.  Keefer  expects  that fully 12,000 acres of rich  meadow   lands   will   be   reclaimed,   from   the  boundary line to Davies ranch.  The work of last season was also delayed from  various causes, not more than three miles of  dyke being thrown up, but this year it is expected, when everything is in full swing, that  the dyke will grow one mile in length each  month.  The formation   of the  hills cuts the land up  into  a  series of pockets, and the work will  be  continued on this side of the river until the present dyke strikes the high ground on one of the  - hill slopes running down near the river bank.  Mr. Anderson, the company's representative,  has purchased a steam tug in Seattle, and will  have the same shipped in as soon as possible. It  will be registered as a British bottom and be  employed constantly on the work. As there is  nothing save cotton wood on the present side  of the river on which they are working the boat  will be employed chiefly in ferrying fuel across  to the works.  A gang of Chinamen will be put to work  within a few days to do the rough work in  connection with the dyking, as it is considered  they will stay with the work longer than white  men.  The land, when it is reclaimed, will be the  garden of West Kootenay, as it will have excellent communication with north and south.  TO HELP THE SCHOOL.  You   Must  ���������J������  BoWn Again into Your Pockets. But  You are Used to It.  Since the princely appropriation of the Provincial Government of $40 per annum for incidentals in connection with the maintenance of  the Public school has been expended twice over  for actual necessities the trustees have decided  to hold a concert by which to defray their expenditures.  Schools must be kept up, and in this connec  tion it is no doubt pleasant for the people of  Nelson to reflect that the Provincial Government is trading upon their generosity. If the  school would keep itself clean, and the climate  sufficiently tropical to render cord wood unnecessary ; if chalk would not persist in wearing away in the teacher's hand, and ink would  not dry up in the bottles, $40 per annum would  suffice for Nelson's Public school, but as none of  Nature's laws appear to bow in obedience to the  whims of British Columbia's Legislature, it is  not enough, and the deficiency must be met by-  a public concert.  SPOKANE   TO   MAKE   A   BID  TO THE 0. P. E. IN THE SHAPE OP A GUAE-  ANTEED PEEIGHT TONNAGE  For Which tae Merchants and Business Men of that  Citjf Mope the Canadian Pacific Will Build a  Road Through the Crow's Nest Pass and Connect  Theni With the Far East.  There is an old saying that straws show how  the wind blows. If this be so there is every  reason to believe that the Crow's Nest Pass  section of the C. P. R. system will be proceeded  with at once.  Since Spokane merchants and business men  emptied their thousands into the lap of "Jim "  Hill's railroad and were so beautifully fooled by  that plausible railway magnate, they have been  on the hunt for revenge and better rates to the  East. They held a number of secret meetings  and eventually sought the advice of D. C. Cor-  bin in the matter. .  The promoter of the Nelson & Fort Sheppard  railway advised them  to submit a guarantee of  a certain tonnage  of freight  to the   C. P. R.  officials  as an inducement to that company to  build the road  through  the Crow's Nest Pass.  This the merchants of Spokane declared their  willingness to do and a guarantee of a certain  tonnage for two years will be laid before the  C. P. R. officials.  This, coupled with the fact that the C. P. R.  desire to shorten their line across the continent,  that it would give them the most direct route  from the far East to Spokane, with its peculiar  advantages, and that C.P.R. engineers are now  looking over the line through the Crow's Nest,  give the story of the proposed construction  some color.  Schedule for Revelstoke Route.  A special train will leave Nelson to-morrow  afternoon at three o'clock in order to connect  with the steamer Lytton, which goes on the  Revelstoke route next week. The Lytton has  been scheduled to leave Revelstoke for Robson  every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 4  a.m. On the return trip the steamer will leave  Robson on the same evening as she arrives,  between the hours of 7 and 9 o'clock.

Of course they persist  in saying that their road will be built, and in  this respect they may be said to be singular.  Dan Dunn Gets a ������Joh.
