C, SATURDAY JULY 23, 1904.  splits  I  ales of the   X own  Early in the week ft wns reported  that the Nelson Lacrosse team had disbanded, but later on it was stated that  the team would make a tour of, the  coast cities, extending over a couple of  weeks. It is understood that it is tlieir  intention to play not only the teams on  the Canadian side, but those at Seattle,  Tacoma and Spokane as well. Tiiere  19 some friction on account of the club  not being able to get the recreation  grounds for practice.  The saving of'Ed gar Ellis by his sister, Miss Edna Ellis, is deserving of.all  praise. Tt seems to be inevitable that  children in learning to swim should  encounter' some risks. It was , extremely fortunate for the boy.and for  the family tbat his sister is endowed  with unusual presence of mind as well  as most-commendable courage.  The hot weather of this week has  again aroused some fear as to the damage that might be caused by bush fires.  Too much care cartuot be. a taken with  regard to starting (ires in the woods.  Campers aud prospectors should exercise the greatest caution.        * ;  If the city engineer has a little time  at his disposal he might cast his optics  over the decayed piece of sidewalk extending east of Hall street on Vernon.  In its present condition it should render the city liable for damages at any  time in the near future.  The Economist has received an m-  *.   ��� ���  vitation -to attend opening of-the ne*y  bridge over tbe Fraser at New Westminster. The card is one of the most  artistic souvenirs ever issued in Oan:  ada, and was designed, engraved and  printed in British Columbia.  Evidently word has gone forth to  the Liberal organizations throughout  the country to at once choose their  candidates and prepare ifor the campaign. Candidates have been selected  far every-constituency in tho Northwest Territories.  _There__will.be tv.three-cornered-fight  in Yale:Caribpp, .Ernest.

It is rumored thut two well-known  "Nelson society people will embark on  a. matrimonial voyage some time during the latter part of next month.  Alexander Ball will conduct the production of''Tho Pirates of Penzance,"  to be given by tho Nelson Operatic So-  oiety during the Fair week iu September.  A street car is a greut place to study  human nature. How many peop'e  there are who ride ou the cars who run  away with the idea that no one's convenience but their own is to be studied.  This is true, perhaps, more particularly  of women, and it becomes rnore noticeable with the increased travel on the  cars. Here is somefhing thathappeus  several times every day. Two women  meet on the car. They engage in conversation, and the time comes for one  of them, to leave; the car. She appears  to have forgotten all about it. The  conductor knows that she has arrived  at her street, and rings the bell, but she  does not move, . AH at ence it recurs  to her'anclshe starts for the exit. Then  she remembers that sho forgot to a>-l*  her friend to cull on her some time, and  she returns. Meantime, I he car is stopping, to let her oil", but she doesn't  mind a little thing-like'that.*.'.'Eventual Iy she does get oil',- but only after  she has delayed the car tin-1 its passengers two or three minutes. That  woman, and there are hundreds of  such in Nelson, thinks the ���Tramway  Company runs its c.ir.s for her special  benefit. She i.s a nuisance' that should  be abated. - '  The Millards, said to be twenty  strong, are asking for dates in September at the Nelson Opera House.  Ed. .0. Senkler, gold commissioner  for the Yukon, has purchased a $20,-  000 block in Vancouver.  It is about time that some steps were  taken to put an end to the highway  begging which prevails to such an  alarming extent in Nelson'just now.  A day never passes that business men  are not held up by someone demanding  a subscription for something or other.  This form of daring." robbery has  reached that point where businessmen  are seriously contemplating the advisability of banding together to resist the  assaults made upon their revenue by  the hold-iip' brigade'. Some have already gone but camping to bo out of  the way of their tormentors. It means  a big drain on a business to respond to  all the'demanUs that are being "made  by the circulators'of these subscrip'tion  lists, who seem to'be about us well organized'in their work as the professional beggars of Italy. This summer  the hnt.has been p;iss>ed around very  frequently, an J tlio end id not yet in  sight. Now is the time not to subscribe.  Quite a number of families are camping up the lake. The general expression of,opinion is that the shore of  Kootonay Lake is the ideal place for a  summer.-resoi't.  The-garden party~gi vcri~~at~tlJe~re&i-  .donee of Mr. and Mrs. Frank,Fletcher,  uiider the auspices of St. Saviour's  Church, last Wednesday evening, was  attended by about 300. There was  music supplied by the Nelson City  Band, and dancing was indulged in on  the beautiful green swaid. The arrangements were made by Rev. Mr.  Graham and could not have been bettor carried out. The tables were looked  after by the following Jadies: flower  store, Misses Nickor-son, Ernst and  Deacon; icecream booth,MissClawson,  assisted by Miss ,��� Dorothy: McLeod ;  candy'store; inJchurge ;of '.Miss Retta  Johnstone, assisted by Miss '..Ut.. Macdonald and the Misses I'enaand Gladys  Blakemore,; refreshment table, .Mrs.  Goepel, Mrs. Middleton, Mrs. Geuello,  Miss Alice Ebbs and Mis3 Dorothy  Cummins.  Samuel   A.    Brown,   who;:stabbed  Alexander     McArthur     Wednesday  morning, has   been sent up   for trial  on the charge of attempted murder. He  will be defended by Hex Macdonald.  �����  There have been quite a number of  petty. robberies reported to the police  the past week or so, whieh'gi.y.es rise to  the suspicion that there is a small band  of sneak thieves in the" city at the  prcsen time.

J._Camj)be]J._ _  The Nelson Opera House was  crowded to (he doors, last night to witness the musical adaptation of the old  story of "Cinderella, and the. Glass  Slipper." It was really a pleasing;  spectacle, the.-costumes worn being  the richest and , best that-: have  been seen on "the Nelson stage for  some time.: The music is exceedingly  tuneful, and its rendering by the  young peeple shows that Mr. Ball has  the faculty of instructing children how  to sing without that unpleasant nasal  twang which is so often heard. Miss  Clarisse Blakemore made an ideal  " Cinderella, " looking extremely  pretty and singing her solo with great  feeling, possibly making use of tho vi-'  brato a little too much. But as this!  was her first appearance it might have |  been caused by nervousness. The  parts of "Charlotte" and "Ulrica''  were admirably, sustained by Miss  Blakemore and Miss,King. Their costumes were exceptionally handsome,  and their acting in the scene where  lhey-try on the slipper could not very  well be improved upon. " The Bar-  oneis de Pompoline" could not have  been in better hands than those of  Mrs..Cummins, who was letter perfect  and never halted in her lines for a second. Miss Flora Macdonald, as "The  Fairy Godmother,"made up the part  to perfection. She sings sweetly, and  it is not too much to say that sho has  inherited dramatic genius of a high  character. Mr. Newling seemed to  have a good time as "Pedro.";' He is  | too good tin  actu- not to   he alway- j main phvikin their platform k-ing tho  welccme to a Neli-on audience, but he*supp:ession  of street  noises.        Keen  .evidently did not think that Ihis occasion was worthy of his best cM"i��r!s  ft was observed that sover.il limes ne  was anxiously waiting a word from  ihe prompter. His tendering of the  -ong, "The Message ef tlie Violet"' wa.-,  a lovcl.ition to many. Jt i.s an extremely pretty*song. Mr. I). Nickor-  son lillfrd the part of "Mu ley" most acceptably'. "Lord Higstep," impersonated by INIr. Smith, created roars of  laughter, and his rendition ofthe song.  "While the Union Jack Waves," was  very pleasing indeed. Mr. J. H.  Gibb's was every inch a prince, looking handsome in his rich costume.  Ilis enunciation is particularly good.  Helen Thurman, Myra Renwick, Noel  Irvine', and Lottie Taylor made a  handsome quartette of fairies. A minuet was danced-both by children and  adults, and it is a question if the children did not carry off the. palm.  Bruce Macdonald and little Hope  Fletcher were both quaint and graceful in their movements. Little Mildred Irvine and Arthur Gilker  are remarkably pretty dancers. The  rest of the minuet was filled by Emma  Ferguson, Dawn Hume, Alex." Walix.s-  ley and Kenneth McBe'ath, and all vj-e're  decidedly graceful. The darkey chorus,  made up of Louis Johnstone, Jimmy  Middleton, Norman McLeod, Eddy  Choate, - Percy and George ' Co'rry,  was funny and provoked roars of  laughter. The huntsmen's chorus,  composed of Will's Middleton, Leon  McCandlish, -R{ycy- -Gri.zzclle, James  McCandlish and H. Nickerson, received a well-merited .'Vencore. The  Irwin orchestra supplied' the music  between tho acts, which was an attractive" feature of tlie evening's pcrt'orm-  mance. Altogether it was one of the  most pleasing entertainments seen in  Nelson for some 'time. It will be re--  peated this evening.  Some time before the ashes and lava  of Vesuvius in 79 A. D. covered up  irercuUiK'iim and Pompeii, a municipal election was held in the latter  city. Mr. 'Josoph'Oflbrd read a paper  before the Society, for the Encouragement" of 1 h"o"Ki nc *Arts~cb-hcer~hin~g~ this"  election, about which nothing would  have been known' but for the terrible  eruption, which from 79 to 1755 hurried  the iriunjcipium arid-its 'electors alike  in a lava tomb. Mr. Offord showed  that", many of the inscriptions un'cov-.  ercd on the walls of the icity relate to  elections and claims of candidates,  much'in the same way as do the placards posted iu our streets to-day, says  the Scientific American; Some were  rudely inscribed, others set forth .with  artistic embellishment, and one, at.  least, contained a topical verse written  by some minor poet, and painted In  red: Like our candidates, those in  Pompeii were run by their supjii.oi'tters;  who represented vartous:tr'��H}e,j.and interests. The wood-cutters, fishers, performers, dyers, barbers, aiud the like  had their men pledged to promote or  protect their rights and "privileges.  There does not appear to have been a  federation of miners at that time.'; There  were faddists,, too, in Pompeii, who  were looked after by such societies as  Ball-players, Boycotters, Long Sleepers, Deep Drinkers, and Little Thieves,  to adopt a free transition of some their  titles. The candidate of the Ball-players was Cataline Houstonius, a name  well known in our own day  Pompeii "had its religious��� ���cjjfliculty.  -���\s evt?ry visitor to those wondrous u.i-  btiried ruins knows, it was the hon.e  of a .cosmopolitan and, fi,r it-* age, cultured and tolerant pooplo, and lo this  day stand altars erected l-i H^pti.m  -gods side by side with those of the  established worship of Venus. Naturally there arose some differences between them. It is suggested that further excavations may prove that at the  7S election there were Isis passive re-  sisters. Thus near Game Imperial  Rome to representative government.  N  ews of the  M  ��� ZaA AiT-ZZA/^m^St  mes  }A$km  W  HP  The Indian, Frank Boni, who took  French leave from the chain gang at  the Victoria jail some weeks ago, and of  whom no trace could be found, though  the country-side was scoured by parties in search.of him coolly walked into  the jail on Tuesday evening with the  remark : '' I've come back." Boni's  explanation of his escapade is that he  had some little business matters of his  own, in whieh horses wagons and relatives were mixed up, to settle. .This  he had su"cessfuliy arranged and went  back to serve his sentence.  Christ Church Cathedral, Victoria,  was the scene of one of tbe most brilliant events of the season last Saturday  evening, when Miss Gertrude Alice  Rithet, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs.  R. P. Rithet, was wedded to Mr. Lawrence Arthur Genge, a son of Mr. and  Mrs. James E. Genge, of Surrey, England. The ceremony was performed  by Veil. Archdeacon Scriven.  Hon. Robert Green, Commissioner  of Lands and Works, has returned to  Victoria after a visit through the interior. Mr. Green travelled with the  Premier for some days, but it will be  remembered that they separated at  Kaslo. A recent issue of the Colonist  contains a lengthy interview with Mr.  Green from which it may be gathered  that he has made a keen study of the  conditions prevailing in the districts  through which he passed, lie noted  a great improvement in business every  where, with good prospects for the future. Mr. Green does not exaggerate  the situation, when he expresses the  belief that the. Government is growing in popularity. It may be  inferred from his remarks that it is the  intention of the Government to study  closely the wants of the people and  deal with them intelligently.  A t a meeting of tho Slocan Board of  Trade last week, a letter was read from  H. Giegerich, Kaslo, "outlining'the  plan of action of Kaslo and Sandon  merchants lh laying their complaints  before the railroad commission, sittings of which will be held at Nelson  and Revelstoke. He did not deem it  necessary to engage a lawyer to look  after their case, but he would like to  see each town represented at the hearing. The letter was discussed and  filed.  D.

J  BOUNDARY MINING NOTES.  Plioenix Pioneer.  Some magnificent specimens* of steel  galena are being taken out of the  Mavis claim, which Mike Kane and  a ;s< ciates are working. The shaft is  down 20 feet.  About live cars per week will lie  shipped from theB. C. Copper Co.'s  clay bank, to the Greenwood smelter,  to be mixed with Republic ores for  use as linings for the converters.  F. C. Bailey has some 30 men working on his Excelsior group in Providence camp, being railway laborers on  the Great Northern grade. They arc  showing up his claims in good shape.  Randolph Stuart put through a deal  this week by which the Lead King  claim, about a mile below Anaconda,  was bonded to T. A. Garland, of the  latter place, for $12,000.    The owners  are Messrs. Elliott, Wortman, Brooks  and Hamlin.    The bond runs over the  y ���  period of a year.  A slide of ore at the No. 1 level of  the Knob Hill mine this week disabled the large steam shovel for a  time, and the smaller shovel will probably be used in its. place for a while".  Fortunately, while but four furnaces  were in operation at the Granby smelter, the large shovel was not needed so  badly.  The Silver Cloud mineral claim, in  Skylark camp, has been bonded for  $10,000 to Alex. Robinson, L. A.  Sm ith and associates, by J. *W. Nelson,  D. Ross, J. H. Hallett, J. P. McLeod  and J. P. Black. Work has been  started on-the property, and it Is said  that assays of %llo per ton have been  secured.  This week Alexander Miller; acting  on behalf of himself and Chicago associates, exercised the option recently  given when he bondod the Barbara  claim, and paid for the same in cash.  The claim is in the backyard of Mayor  Naden of Greenwood, and recent development has shown it up in most  gratifying shape. More extensive operations will probably ensue.  SLOCABJ MINING BCOTES.  June 30 is the end of the fiscal year  of the Granby Consolidated, at which  time figures are prepared showing what  has been done at the mines and smelter  for the preceding twelve months.  Ending last June 30th, 5,098 feet development work were done at the  mine, not including glory hole work,  and the shipments ln the same time  were 521,292 tons of ore, all of which  went to the company's smelter. In the  month of June 385 feet of development work were done.  Hlocnn jiipinu.

Mm  ami  Kaslo Kootenaian,  The Mother Lode, owned by K&alo  parties, is being developed under a  working bond. The ore is high grad"  silver-lead, carrying gold with iron and  zinc.

The Swede group is being developed  by a series of long open trenches above  and below the main workings similar  to the method being employed on tbe  Blue Bird in the Slocan. So far it has  proved very productive of results, as a  fine vein of quartz was encountered  last week, carrying Rvalues similar to  those for which this group is now famous.

EDITORIAL  COMMENT.  In   every  conflict between the   Lion and the Bear  the tormer must win.  The appearance of the Via liv *st ):k sq'.ndron in  Victoria harbor would have a bad effect on the tourist  trade of that city.  Failures last w;ek n-.i inhere 1 225 in the United  States against 213 last year, and 20 in Canada compared vvith 16 a yejrago.  c  Should it come to war. presumably the Home Of  fice will retire Lord Dundonald and avail i'.self of the  services of Farmer Fisher.  Nelson is always pleased to chronicle additions lo  her population, but there is no welcome for the man  Who uses a knife to give point to his argument.  The editor of the Grand Forks .cun announces that.,  le is the possessor of an automobile. The  death-rate in Grand Forks is sure to show gratifying  progress from this time- forward.  Judge Anglin has declined to interfere by way of a  ���writ of habaes corpus in the case of Sam Thompson,  a municipal.election official now 1 ndergoiug a two-  year sentence for plugging votes.  The holiday, number issued by the Vernon News is  a-credit to the establishment in which it was prepared and printed. It is the best advertisement the  Okanagan Valley has ever had.  With the prospects of a grand naval battle between  England and Russia in the  vicinity of Beacon   HuT  there would be a demand  for homes in Nelson by  those citizens of Victoria who love p-^ace rather than  war.  Lord Dundonald saj sthat there is a scheme on foot  to organize a corps in the Northwest to be known as  the Strathcona Horse, vvith headquarters at Regina,  where Lord Strathcona will erect a barracks for  thetn.  In the event of war between England and Russia,  it is doubtful if Canadians would feel  that  their sea  , coast would be effectually guarded by  thac   distin-  ��� guished  military and naval  hero,   Farmer  Sydney  Fisher.  A dispatch from Johannesburg South Africa, gives  the output of the Transvaal mines for last month  (June) at 520,000ounces of fine gold. That is an increase of 31.000 ounces compared with the output of  last January, and makes a total for the first half of  the prsent year of 1,826,944 ounces, of a value of  about forty mi lion dollars, the figures being- subject  to revision by the Transvaal Chamber of Mines.  Mr. Bryan is not exactly damning Judge Parker  with faint praise^. He is damning the candidate with  faint praise of the platform and none at all of the man.  Mr. Bryan says that he will vote the democratic  ticket because the party platform even when modified  by Judge Parker's telegram is better than the republican policy. But that is hardly the sort of declaration to inspire the party to great deeds, or to encourage hope for victorj*.  Dun's Review reports wholesale trade at Montreal  as being of a midsummer character. Dry goods  business is of a sorting character and heavy goods of all  kinds are dull. At Toronto, the wholesale trade is  fairly gctive, but payments are only fair. Business in  all lines is quiet at Halifax, and transactions generally on a small scale. At St. John, N. B . the immediate demand for dry goods, hardware and shoes is  limited, with orders for fall shipment haidly up to the  average, "Hut bills are being paid promptly.  In view of the.fact that the Liberal party has resorted  to every method known to tricky and unscrupulous  politicians to gain advantage, it is rather amusing to  hear the adherents of that party now uttering regrets  that the Conservatives are tajcing advantage of  the Dundonald incident to confound their opponents.  Liberal statesmanship, as it is known in Canada' is to  resort to every despicable act to gain control of the  treasury. A party that has stolen even its trade  policy should be the last to set up a code of honor for  its opponents.  The Sandon Standard and other papers which are  so persistent in their abuse of Nelson should at least  try and be original. " Ilogtown" is rather stale and  auyway may incite the jealousy of Toronto, .which  has long monopolized that title.  -In order that it eaunot be offered as an excuse afterwards that Russia was laboring under misapprehension, we beg leave to report the Rocky Mountain  Rangers up to fu'l strength and ready as ever to take  up arms in defence of the Empire.  Tbe De Beers Company has declared a dividend of  25 per cent, on its capital stock. This is the second  one declared during tne fiscal year ended June 1, 1964.  The preceeding one was 30 per cent., making with  the last one, 55 per cent, for the year, or ,��\ 7s 6d  per share.  Those Liberals who profess tbe belief tbat the Dun  donald disclosures will scarcely amount an incident  in the Dominion campaign should read carefully there-  ports in the papers of the reception given-tQ th.M_.diSi.  tinguished officer at Toronto. Six thousand people  crowded Massey Hall at the citizens' welcome to Dundonald, and his reply to criticisms upon his report  vvas enthusiastically cheered. Canadians who believe in British fair play will be inclined to enter  their protest against the shabby treatment of Lord  Dundonald in the most effective manner possible  when the right comes--at the polls next November.  Tlie   Vernon News' holiday  number contains a  beautiful illustration of D R. Young's castle at Ver-  Some days ago. Mr. Tarte's newspaper, La Patiie,  .asked and answered the question, "Why do we make  so much bad butter in Quebec?" The question and  answer were intended to help the Quebec farmer, and  it vvas stated that insufficient care was taken with tbe  milk dishes, a fault not peculiar to Quebec farmers  alone. The same complaint might be made against  many farmers in the other Provinces of the Dominion.  But Le Canada, tl.e Liberal organ, seeks to make  capital against Mr. Tarte, by accusing that gentleman  of attempting to bring the l'rovince of Quebec into  disrepute by "calumniating our dairy industry."  " We cannot help deploring this mania for traducing  all that we touch." says the Laurier organ. "It is  riot at this time," Le Canada continues, "when people in certain quarters are trying to excite all Canada  against the Province of Quebec that Canadians [i. e.  French-Canadians] of heart should furnish arms to  our adversaries who are about to become our enemies," This is pretty plain talk from the leading  Liberal organ of Quebee, and reflects the political  feeling in that Province at the present time. Is this  a sample of tbe much boasted "Liberal statesmau-  ship?"  SHOES  For the wet spring daj-s must be damp  proof and vet light in weight and stylish in  form.
