Price Five Cents  ROAD TO LEMON CREEL  TBE OITY COUNCIL WILL ASSIST  IT IN EVERY WAY.  A Petition Deceived For Ihc Deduction of  Battle Liquor Licenses.���������Matter teft  te the Incepting Council.  At the meeting ot the city council last  Monday a petition was sent in, addressed  to the Assistant Commissioner of Lands  and Works for the south riding of West  Kootenay, with the request that the city  council should give the subject its support. :��������� "���������.'������������������'. -  The petition was numerously signed  by mine owners, prospectors and business  men generally, and prayed for aid towards the construction of a wagon road  from Kootenay Lake up Six Mile Greek,  and crossing a low pass connecting aud  forming a means of ingress and egress  with the second north fork of Lemon  Creek, a total distance of thirteen miles.  The petitioners claimed that this road  would enable ma ny valuable mines' in  this section to be-some shippers at an  early date, including tbe Alpine group,  Nelson and Black Prince, Lucky George,  Tariff and several others, and would be  of great advantage to tbo community.  The council endorsed tbe petition and  agreed to help it on by every means in  their power. '��������� :\' \'  '_  A communication was read from tbe  Nelson Wine Cotasking that their license  be reduced from $400 to $200 per annum.  The letter set forth that there was uo  consumption ot liquor on the premises,,  nor did the company aim at this class of  trade. Their liquors were Bold in not  less than pint bottles, and while whole-  Bale houses could supply from a bottle  to a barrel of liquor, the license charged  tbem was but $100 per annum.  Aldennau Malone suggested that Mr.  Jtussel should take - out a wholesale license if be was not eaisfled with the present one. If the amount were to be reduced as suggested by Mr..Russell, there  would be five or six in the trade instead  of one as at present.  The mayor pointed out that tbe by-law  limited the number to two, and recommended that Mr. Russell should make  his application to the new council after  electon. Tbe other members of the council expressed tbe opinion'that tlie license  was too high, but concurred: with the  mayor that the applicaion should be  dealt with by the incoming council.  Chief of the < fire department Calkin  sent in his resignation, which was accepted. The Volunteer Fire Brigade  requested that W. J. Thompson be appointed to the office of chief. The recommendation wqs approved.  The pound keeper tendered his resignation, it wag accepted.  DURRANT IS DEAD.  He raid the Penalty for His Crime on the  Kcaflfeld.  Victoria-, B.C., January 7.���������[Special]���������  Theodore Durrant was executed at 10:35  today arid his last words were: ~,-^~ ���������  "I am innocent."  Mrs. Durrant was with,her son until  the lust. The parting was extremely  pathetic. His mother wept and embraced him time and time again.  He made a lengthy talk before his  execution and throughout it maintained  his innocence. His death was painless  and when the body was out down it was  received by Father Logan in the Roman  Catholic church.  HELD FOR BURGLARY.  two   Men   are Connallted  far  Trial by  Magistrate  Crease.  The Hudson Bay Company's store was  burglarized last Tuesday afternoon and  before evening Chief of Police McKinnon  bad two men behind the bars charged  with the offence.  ThenameB given by the prisoners  were Edward Evans and George Higgius  and on Wednesday their preliminary examination took place before Magistrate  Crease, who committed them for trial before a court of competent jurisdiction.  It appears that on the day mentioned,  Manager Bobson of the Hudson Bay  Company, with the permission of the  revenue offlcer.moved some bonded goods  so as to prevent tbem getting damaged  by water. A short time afterwards he  discovered that a robbery of about $200  worth of goods had been committed. The  articles taken consisted of whiskey, tobacco and groceries and Mr. Bobson at  once informed the chief of police.  : During that same evening the chief  located some of the stolen goods that  bad been sold under the representation  that they were salvage goods from the  Bteamer Nakusp. The chief soon had  the men under arrest and much Credit is  due him for his quick work.  KELSON BOARD OP TRADE.  Officer* Were Elected J*������t Wednesday.-  Meetlnc Next Week.  A meeting to reorganize the South  Kootenay board of trade wits held  Wednesday afternoon in the city hall.  The meeting, which was well attended was called to order by John A,  Turner, who after briefly stating the  objects of the organization called for  the election of 'officers. Mayor John  Houston acted as secretrry.  Officers were elected as follows:  president, John A. Turner; .vice-president, H. J. Evans; secretary-treasurer,  H. B. Thompson; executive committee,  Thomas Ward, P. J. Russell, George  Tunstall, Frank Fletcher, J. J. Malone,  A. Martin, J.--.-Lawrence, M. McKay,  M. DesBrisay, H..R. Bellamy, W.  Grant and C. A. Waterman.  Mo Lean & Co., waterworks contractors, sent in another bill for extras, a-  mounting"to $310. ,  The mayor wanted to know when they  were going to hear the last of these extras. He was under the impression that  tbe last bill of extras was the final one.  Who could say how many more they  would have. He thought the contractors  had been very liberally treated.  "The men should not be robbed out of  their dues." said Aid. Hillyer.  ���������'Whois trying to rob them?" asked  Aid. Fletcher. o  Aid. Hillyer said that if the contractors  had just claims they should be entertained.  The mayorbecame indignant and proceeded to review the work, showing that  the con tractors had been very liberally  dealt with.  It was decided to offer the contractors  $1112 in full settlement of all claims, and  to extend the time for the completion of  the work to the 81st. May. .  It was decided to petition the local  legislature in favor of opening up and  repairing the old trail from Nelson to  Ymir. _  Aid. Hillyer introduced an amendment  to the Traders' bylaw, providing that no  license be issued to pedlars, hawkers or  auctioneers without the sanction t of the  mayor. The amendment was carried but  will be submitted for legal advice before  final action is taken.  Adjourned until Monday afternoon.  Exports Via Kaslo.

VOLUNTARILY  OUTS  TflE  RATE FROM EASTERN CANADA.  The  Company Eatabllnhen   a  Freighting  Rente Between Nelson nnd Fort  8teele-A Yalcon Circular.  Ammntmemt*. .  The Kaslo Dramitic Society will  present "The Private Secretary" at  Carney hall on Baker and Kootenay  streets tonight and it promises to be  an entertainment worth seeing. The  company' gave two performances in  Kaslo and the 'praise in local papers  was lavish. "The Private Secretary"  needs no introduction to the people of  Nelson most of whom have witnessed  the play. It is a mirth provoking  comedy and has always been a prime  favorite with the theatre going public.  From the time the curtain raises,  until it falls upon the last act, the  audience is kept'in a roar of laughter.  The people taking part in the performance are well adapted to their roles  and the affair is sure to be a grand  success. The play is to be givenunder  the auspices- of the Ladies' Aid of the  Kootenay .Lake General, Hospital.  The cast is as follows: _  Rev. Robert Spaulding, Mr. Burdick;  Douglas Cattermole, Mr. Andrews;  Mr. Gibson, Mr. Fletcher; Squire  Malier;. Harry Marsland, Mr. .Rolph;  Knox, the Bailiff, Mr. Rae; Uncle  Cattermole, Mr. Fraser; Mrs. Stead  and Eva Webster, Mrs. Fraser; Edith  Marsland," Miss Smith; Miss Ashford,  Mrs. Doty.  lemon Creek Concentrator.  It is now an undisputed fact that the  British Canadian Gold Fields Company  will erect a concentrator near the Lemon  Creek townsite early in the spring, the  machinery for which will be taken in on  the snow. The company is taking this  step in order to be in position to handle  the ore from their two properties���������tbe  Howard Fraction and the Golden Wedge.  Both of these properties are high grade  free milling gold propositions, and have  turned out wonderfully well.���������Sloean  CifcyKews.  The Canadian Pacific Railway has  voluntarily made material reductions  in freight charges on commodities  shipped from Eastern Canada to the  Kootenay country. The reductions  are those which the C.P.R. at the time  of obtaining the Crow's Nest charter  agreed to make when the Crow's Nest  line was completed to Kootenay river.  Under the agreement the reductions  would not be in effect for many  months to come, but the companycon-  cluded that they should go into effect  January 1,1898.  The reductions are from 10 to 33J  per cent and some of the commodities  affected are agricultural implements,  cordage, felt, household furniture,  glass, iron, paints and oils, building  paper, wire, woodenware, coal oil,  green and fresh fruits, rope etc.  The C. P. R. is opening a route to  Fort Steele by the new wagon road  from Armstrong's landing on Kootenay river. The steamer Nelson will  make the trip twice a week regularly  and also make intermediate trips when  necessary. On the regular trips the  boat will leave Nelson on Tuesdays  and Fridays at 9 a. in. An agent will  at once be appointed at Armstrong's  landing to look after the freight and  turn it over to the freighting company  ���������Porter Brothers. o  This direct connection with the Fort  Steele country, pending the construction of the Crow's Nest line, is a most  important thing to Nelson and will  open out a new field for local exporters. At present a considerable quantity of goods is going in from Golden,  Kalispel and Bonner's Ferry but' this  trade will in the future be secured to  Nelson. In anticipation of this new  route sorneof.Nelson's merchants bavt*  already sold a large quantity of goods  for that section. Mr. McDonald of the  C.P.R. left yesterday to go through  to Fort Steele and make all arrangements for the proper handling of. the  goods. w-  - ���������  The Canadian Pacific has published  a Klondyke tariff and the rates from  Vancouver via the Canadian Pacific  Navigation Co. are us follows: To Fort  Wrangle for flour, beans, pork and  general merchandise, $8 per ton and  85 for each dog; to Telegraph Creek,  $53 per ton and $10 for dogs; to Juneau  89 per ton and 85 for dogs; to Dyeu,  Skagway 810 per ton and 85 for dogs;  to St.- Michaels $100 per ton; to Dawson  City and Yukon points tor flour, beans  and pork $120 per ton and for general  merchandise $200 per ton. No rates  ui-e given for dogs to St. Michaels and  Yukon points.  NOMINATIONS NEXT MONDAY.  d. c. goebin's mm.  WILL SEE 10,000 MINERS EMPLOYED  AROUND NELSON.  Believe* That the roblle Sheald Pin It*  Faith to tew Crade Mine*.-Will  Bolld to Deaadary,  D. C. Corbio, president of the Nelson  & Fort Sbeppard railway, was a visitor  to Nelson last week.  In. speaking of the project to build to  the Boundary country be said that he  intended to apply for a charter for that  purpose and wonld build just as Boon as  conditions justified it. At present there  is not a sufficient business to justify the  expense but as there are many flue mines  in that district the probabilities are that  a road.could do a good business there  witbiu the next two years, lhe route  will not' be all Canadian but will extend  from Nortliport over the easiest grades  ou both sides of the line. Mr. Corbin  says that he does not care where he hauls  ore. He would as readily take ore from  the Colville country and bring it into  British Columbia for smelting if there was  an equal amount of money in it for him.  Is anybody wants to build a smelter  along, the line of the proposed road or  within a mile of it, he will haul as cheaply to it as to Nortbport.  He thinks the idea of on export duty  oa ore is absurd and would have a tendency to keep capital out of the country.  It is a matter that will eventually right  itself. Kootenay people should throw  nothing in the way of tbe development  of low grade mines. They should look  to tbe building of the Crow's Meat road  so that cheap fuel, etc., will make smelting in British Columbia as obeap as it is  on the other side. When this condition  bos been established smelters will in the  natural course of events. be built in  British Columbia. He looks forward to  the ."day, and- confidently believes that it  is utot far distant,, when 10,000 men will  be employed underground in that strip  of territory lying-between Nelson and  the'boundary. 'When this number is  ���������Ml^rod ho will apt care to boo) ore  but wi'il be well satisfied to haul supplies,  etc. It is a condition that can and will  be accomplished aud will be soon realized  by the people working to that end., For  general prosperity, the people of Kootenay should pin their faith to low grade  properties.

Hall, superintendent  of the Le Boi mine at Rosslaod, was  killed at 520 o'clock Wednesday afternoon by falling down the main shaft from  the surface to the 600 foot level.  Capt. Hall aud the foreman. Nick Tre-  jfear, who had been making an inspection of the mine, rode to the top ou one  of the skips. Tie foremon stepped safely  on the floor, and walked to the shaft  house, a few feet distant, but Capt. Hall  stepped on a narrow beam, 10 inches  wide, which separates the two compartments. A moment later he lost his footing and fell to the bottom, landing fairly  across'the skip which was standing there.  The remains were badly mutilated and  scarcely recognizable.  The body was shipped to Butte for interment. The coroners jury yesterday  rendered a verdict of accidental death.  The death of Capt. Hall is looked upon  as a public calamity and to the La Boi  company, bis loss is a serious one. He  leaves a wife and five children to mourn  his 1o*b.       Milling News.

Tbe Morning aud Evening claim on  Toad mountain is now down 75 feet ouan  inclined shaft and four men are engaged  in taking out ore which will probably be  shipped to the Nelson smelter this  month. This chum has produced some  of the richest gold ore ever seen in the  d strict.  Mr. Kehoe, expert of the Canadian Exploration nnd Development" Co. has returned from a visit to the Northern  Light Group on Forty-niue creek and in  all probability the property will pass from  the Bright Prospects Company to Mr.  Keboe's company. The selling price is  850,000.  A strike of importance is reported in  the lower tunnel ot the Silver King mine  It is an ore body at least 20 feet wide  and 200 or 300 feet in length. It was run  upon unexpectedly, not having been  located by the diamond drills nnd is said  to be the richest silver ore ever encountered in the mine.  The Tennessee claim near Ymir has  temporarily shot down wt ax owing to the  fact that the hands after receiving their  pay, skipped out without giving notice to  the management or the storekeepers in  Ymir. Another force will be put to work  at once and a new trail will have to be  broken to the mine.  GENERAL LOCAL NEWS.  EVENTS   OF   INTEREST   IN  AND  AROUND NELSON.

The books of travel written by flying visitors to foreign countries art  proverbial, and as long as the amazing statements and distorted facts do  nobody'any harm they afford a good  subject.-for merriment. At the same  time through ignorance or carelessness it good deal of injury may result,  and wc are therefore obliged to criticise somt^temarks which Mr. McMillan  has been making ab the Imperial Ins  tifcute. Mr. McMillan delivered V lecture there upon'the'subject of mining  matters in British Columbia and upon  Hossland in particular. Now there is  no harm whatever in lecturing upon  Ttnssland, if anyone can-ke'toiiirt to  listen. It is n most interesting place  realiyf The story of its growth is  wonderful and its future prosperity as  displayed by its daily press is truly  marvellous and in fact it is a busy  mining towg^,bub what we"' have to  cowpltttfirrjris that Mr. McMillan described it as the capital of Kootenay,  which it certainly is not.  Nelspn is the capital of this district  and it is unfair to its many merchants  and other business people that they  should be thus passed oyer by a peri  patetic and possibly interested lecturer in London. The agent general,  Mr.Ji'ot'besGeorge^Vei-non.-was.inthe  chair. No one expects hint to know  anything at all, therefore it is no wonder that he allowed the amazing statement to pass unchallenged.  Possibly if Kossland were ten years  old and Nelson was only three, Ross  ' land might be the c:ipit;il, but as it  Imppens the seat of the local government is at Nelson. The supreme court  sittings and assizes are held at Nelson  the'gaol is ab Nelson and the head  offices of the Canadian Pacific Railway and many wholesale firms are at  Nelson. Still in spite of all these  things there are more people in Ross-  land, at least so it is said, and it may  he-claimed that the bulk of business is  transacted there. Of this however a  very certain measure is ab band in-the  shape of the amounts of duty collected  on imports at the various customs  houses in Kootenay. Here are the  figures for the last six months of 1S97  made up to within one day of the end  of the half year. Waneta, 86301.8-1;  Rykerts, $840.50; Rossland, S37G94.96;  Trail, 814345.-73; Nakusp, $9185,52;  Kaslo, 837502.23; Nelson, $59220.97.  Nelson therefore imports nearly  twice as much as-any, other'' town  Kaslo and Rossland are nearly equal  This appears to prove pretty conclusively that Nelson is not only the head  quarters of the Kootenay from a political and official standpoint, but she is  also the central depot in trade and  commerce. AVe have no desire whatever ];tp suggest that llossland is -unworthy of the great reputation which  her surrounding mines have made for  her. She is also one of Ne.son's host  customers,- It is perhaps a little hard  onher that irresponsible people should  seek to clothe her .in garments which  really do not belong to her.  to the wretched condition of having  nothing to sell. Fancy a ltosslander  without a mine to sell. Such a  wretched state of affairs is too terrible  to think of. Why the very papers  would have to sell their big type and  the occupation of the bootnster would  begone. ^  lb used to be a matter for regret that  our American cousins were gobbling  up everything in the country and that  English capital would not look at what  we had to offer them. But it seems as  if the tide bad turned and now English capital is pouring in at a rate that  astonishes people, and buying up at a  good price all the properties hitherto  dcvelorjcd by Americans.  The British American Corporation  is certainly the strongest, financially,  th.-it has as yet operated in this  country and.if it conducts its business  wisely and well ib cannot fail to be the  means of advancing lis to a very prominent position in the mining market.  It asked for ������1,500,000 aud this amount  it is said, was subscribed three times  over. This success was of course  hugely owing to the names of bwo of  its distinguished directors, but it is  possible that the fame of this country  may have guided some of the subscribers who were only waiting to go  in under good auspices.  Golden Wedge, Little Bonanza, Tariff,  Golden Ledge, Two Brothers, Two  Friends and others. At present communication with either side, Sloean  hike or Kootenayjdutlet, is extremely  difficult and it is impossible to bring  out ore. It is said that if facilities  were provided there would be plenty  to come out. The proposed road will  be nearly 13 miles long and will cost  some $10,090. The petition we are  glad to see is being well signed.  NELSON Oi  * 'RON      WO *8  KELSON, B. 0.  Iron a Mil Brass Casting* of Every Oexcrlp-  (iuu.   Kcpalrtt  nnd   Jobbing  832 A SrECIALTY.  AN AGITATED PAPER.  It is to be hoped that the constitution of our esteemed contemporary  the Rossland Miner is sound, .because  if it is at all faulty in the neighborhood say of the heart ib 'would seem to  be in danger from the extremes of joy  and depression to which it is alternately exposed. Of course we know,  for our contemporary has often said  so, that Rossland is the railway centre  of North America���������or is it British  Columbia?���������we torget for the moment  which, but it is immaterial, and yet if  it had not been for the Rossland Miner  bhe C.P.R. was actually going to pass  it by, at least that is the song that the  R. M. sang a short time ago. And a  dismal dirge it was, sometimes rising  almost iuto frenzy in its descriptions  of Rossland's greatness and anon paralysed with paroxysms of pity over the  crass stupidity of the men who guide  the destines of Canada's greatest highway. At last bhe stubborn Van  Hornian (or should it be Horny)  breast was moved by these touching  appeals to sense, to justice and to business abilities and it was announced by  the R. M.) that bhe C.P.R. was going  bo build immediately (in capital letters)  into Rossland. Possibly not a direct  line straight from Montreal but still  sufficiently direcb to help out the  great railway centie idea. Some how  or other a week or two passed and  sbill bhe line was not built. Possibly  some few other thousands of miles of  line required attention. The C. P. R.  officials ought to have known that the  Kossland line was more important  than all the rest but they have always  been���������or perhaps we should say, have  sometimes been���������according to the R,  M., a pigheaded lot, and (at this particular juncture) plainly neglected their  duty. At last however a party of C.  P. R. surveyors actually appeared on  the scene and then all was joy. Large  head lines fluttered in the breeze  around the column tops of the R. M.  and the Editor (excuse the familiarity,  brother) modestly permitted himself  for once to cock his hat on one side  and saunter down the main street of  Kossland assuming the_ jaunty air of  the man who broke bhe bank of���������no  we beg pardon���������-the man who controlled the C. P. R. and, bent its stubborn rulers to his will. Still two or  even twenty surveyors do not make a  railway and now some few weeks have  passed, weeks it is true of frost and  snow and ice, and the railway is not  even begun, much less finished, and  once more the perfidy of Shaugh-  nessy and the duplicity of Van Home  and various other-sins and omissions  of other individuals have become the  theme of the much agitated sheet.  Some day no doubt the rumbling  engines of the great railway will shriek  their way into Rossland and then,  bursting through the serried ranks of  the welcoming crowd, a youth will  rush forth, and throwing himself into  the arms of the conductor will exclaim  'at last' with his dying breath.  WHOLESALE BUYING.  If things go on ab Rossland as they  have been doing-lately it.wiH be useless to go there for properties to buy.  The big syndicate organized by ]\lr.  Mcintosh will havebought everything  up and the Rosslanders will be reduced  In return for tile Crow's Nest Pass  charter, certain reductions in freight  rates were required of the C. P. R. on  goods coming from Eastern Canada  into Kootenay. These reductions were  to come into force, as soon as the new  line reached Kootenay lake. The work  of construction is still some considerable way from the lake but the railway has made the reductions amounting on an average of twenty per cent,  The great company is nob always the  grasping, greedy corporation it is  sometimes made out to be.

The Pelton Water Motor  Is so superior to all others a������ regards strength,  durability, economy of water, in fact, in all that  constitutes a High Class Water Motor, as to  admit of no comparison, adapted to every variety  of service and made of sizes varying from the  fraction of one to 100 horsepower.  Recent scientific tests made at the Michigan  university in connection with several other motors  claimed tone the best on the market, showed 45  per cent, higher efllcicncy in favor of the Pelton,'  while the relative cost per H. P. to buy was only  one-third to one-hnlt t hat of others. Water companies desiring to make the most of their water  supply should discriminate in favor of the Peltojj  One of these motors-is now running presses of  The Miner, where it may be seen in operation.
