John Matthews is said to have found  some line galena in the Putnam claim,  located, not far from the Greenwood  smelter.  Tuesday was the monthly pay day  with the Granby Co. At mine and  smelter'"between 560,000 and ��70,000  was distributed in wages a lono.  It is understood that (���*-. A. McLeod  of Grand Forks, has secured a working  bond, on the McKinley, a rich gold-  copper proposition located iu Franklin  camp.  It is expected that G. H. Collins will  have charge of the mining operations  of the new Montreal and Boston Co.  when the.-amalgamation, in hand is  completed.  Diamond drill operations are being  undertaken on the Rathmullen group,  Summit camp, where John C. Scraf-  ford is in charge. A diamond drill was  taken over there from Phoenix this  week.  .  According to the circular sent out,  the new Montreal and Boston Consoli  dated Mining and Smelling Co. will  tako in' twelve mineral claims', having  050,00) tons of oro in sight, and now  prepared to put out 1,2-50 tons of ore  per clay. ,  Dongald Mclnnis, one of the owners  of tue'^ummit, in Summit camp, wtis  in town Tuesday, and says they ave  still extending tho long lunnefon.that  property to strike thoTcad.

What will strike the reader most,  perhaps, is the wonderful progress that  is being made in this industry, but tho  extracts here given will be particularly  interesting to the citizens of Nelson,  now that it is almost certain that this  city is the centre of what will one day  become' a great frt-it growing district.  "Never," says Mr. Cunningham,  '..has British Columbia had a season as  prosperous as the last has been in the  fruit-raising industry. The fact that  whereas in past years from425 to 80.cars  of apples were shipped for Vancouver  "consumption -from- the-Slates,���-while  til is year only three cars arrived���the  deficit being made up from home supply���is significant.  "But this is only one indication of  the progress of the industry. Since the  1st of January about 250,000 trees were  shipped to this port, of many species  and from many countries. They were  apples, pears, plums, peaches, crabs,  apricots, nectarines, prunes, and cherries, coming from Great Britain,  France, Germany, Holland, the Eastern, Middle and Western States, and  a large number from Ontario. Some  came even from Japan, but these were  more of the ornamental varieties. They  ���were pretty evenly distributed throughout the Province, from Alberni, on the  West Coast of Vancouver Island, to the  Rocky Mountains, and from the boundary line north to the Comox district.  All trees were carefully inspected aud  all that showed any signs of infestation were 'destroyed.  "T^he nursery business is attaining  to very large proportions at' Grand  Forks, at three points iii the Okanagan  valley, in Vancouver Island and the  lower Mainland. On the Coldstream  ranch (Lord Aberdean's) they are going extensively into this business also;  propagating from their best bearing  trees. The conditions-as to soil and  climate there are ideal for producing  healthy robust trees ; with the cold  wiuters the wood will ripen thoroughlj*,  ���which is a very important matter in  growing healthy nursery stock.  "In about two years we should be iu  ales of the  Pill3  ���.-7.'?H=:;i5-7.H^;  Tlie Liberal papers are devoting much space that  might be better employed to killing a straw man of  their own 'stuffing. They accuse the Conservative  pally of opposition to the Grand Trunk Pacific Rail-  wny and devote their energies to crushing tbat opposition.  Now, the Conservatives are not, and have never  been opposed to the building of transcontinental railways ; they led the way in the teeth ofvpersistent and  silly opposition, characterized chiefly by blueruin  prophecy. But they do object strenuously to the  terms of the proposed bargain. .'.  The Prime Minister, whose authority on the geo-  grgphy ofthe route was found to be two hundred and  fifty years old and five hundred miles off the track,  says the cost to Canada will be 1115,000,000; Mr.  Blair, who knows something about railways, said  $115,000,000- Now it is no answer to Conservative  criticism to say that-the G. P. R. cost more than that.  The C. P. R. was a political and national necessity  aiid was built in fulfilment of the contract between  Canada and British Columbia. . It had to be built at  any cost, aud the task was not made easier by the  Liberals. Now a second line is highly desirable if it  can be secured at a reasonable price, but it is not a  necessitj* for which our credit should be indefinitely  pledged. A man will pay any price for a loaf of  bread that saves him from starving, but while his life  is not in danger he does not care to pay more than a  fair price.  have considerable force in their own community, but  it is doubtful if they will succeed in their threat  against the Canadian newspapers which have commented ou the deplorable condition of affairs in that  town, and which should have been investigated by a  commission appointed by the Government. It may  be that the threat is only intended to intimidate and  prevent further reference to the hospital matter, but  eveji in this tbe boycotters will find their mistake. The  taxpayers of the Province demand honesty in the expenditure of their money and the Ymirites are subject  to the same restrictions as the rest of the people of  British Columbia. The press will be lacking in its  duty if it fails to insist upon a thorough investigation  of the whole hospital matter. If the hospital authorities are guiltless they should not fear this investigation.  a position to meet our own demand for  new trees! which will do away with  the evil fruit . growers have suffered  'from the fraudulent and diseased or  misrepresented importations they have  received from unscrupulous nurserymen. How"gio.it the damage already  clone'may be imagined from the fact  that there is scarcely an orchard in the  Province where the lin-ge proportion of  the trees are not being grafted.. Tlie  recent legislation, which compels all  nursery me 11 doing business in British  Columbia, and all agents, to take out  licenses '"and to put up bonds that the  stock they sell are true to name and  free from all disease, is ft protection of  Uie greatest value to fruit growers, and  is greatly appreciated by them. Had  -we-hticl-Ih is-legislation-ten-yea rs-ago,-  iI would have saved fruit growers immense sums of money, besides increasing tlie amount of merchantable fruit  '10U percent, uf what it is to-day. As it  is, it is estimated that a large per cent,  of the bearing trees of British Columbia will have to be top-grafted owing  i  toi-he- fraud of supplying nurserymen  and the mistakes .'made in varieties by'  home growers."  Speaking ���'of the'lines' upon which  fruitgrowers should work with regard  to the varieties of trees they introduced,  Mr. Cunningham said :  " It is an instruclive fact that there  are not more than half a dozen United  States varieties. Tho fruit growers  tiiere havo got down to a few varieties  that arc alwaysmarketable, and this is  the principle that tlie Horticultural  Board of British Columbia are asking  the fruit growers to adopt.".  Iii conclusion, Mr. Cunningham  said : '.      "   '  ." Outside interest in the British Columbia industry-is not confined to any  locality, livery mail brings me letters  from Great Britain, from Australia or  New Zealand, as well as from the States  and Eastern Ontario, enquiring into  laud and particulars for location, which  shows that British Columbia is beginning to make her reputation as a fruit  growing centre. With the. Northwest  demand ever increasing and our convenient geographical situation -to ship  to that market, there cannot be  too rapid a growth of the industry, and  its future success is assured."  Comparison of the cost of the two railways is not  at all to the point, and charges of inconsistency against  Conservatives who approved the building of the C.  P. R. and condemn the bargain_ with the Grand  Trunk Company areac once dishouest and silly.  Not satisfied with having driven the Ymir Mirror  to the wall, the Ymirites now threaten the press of  Canada with annihilation.   ,The Ymir boycotters may  The citizens of Nelson are sometimes subjected to  good-natured chaff on account of their tendency to  exalt the. natural beauty and prosperity of the city.  'But they have good reasons to boast of the progress  of Nelson, and it is pleasing to note that our visitors  are quite as enthusiastic as our own citizens in. referring to the progress and beauty of the Kootenay  metropolis. In his charge to the Grand Jury the  other day, Mr. Justice Martin referred to the pleasure  it gave him to observe that Nelson was steadily improving, and iu natural beauty His Lordship compared the place to Victoria, perhaps the most attractive city on the coast. And every visitor pays a" like  tribute to Nelson, so that our citizens may be excused  if they have grown to regard Nelson as being  among the most beautiful and most phenomenal  ���cities of'this continent:  At   Kaslo, next Tuesday, the  Nelson and   New  Westminster lacrosse teams will cross sticks    Nelsonl  has now .the strongest team she ever had, and if the  New Westminster team is not a great  deal   stronger  than it was last year, Nelson should win.  ian  "A Heart-Broken Husband" writes  The Economist asking this paper to  do something inits capacity as a u re-  dresser of grievances" to put au end to  women gambling. According to this  correspondent gambling is growing  amongst women in Nelson, and that  the demands for pin money are reaching that point where the husbands cannot stand it. The stakes played for, it  appears, are not high, but the losses to  some women are so frequent that they,  have become too much of a drain on  the household resources. One woman  the other day lost the sum of ?2, which  taken iu connection with her other  losses duriug the past twro or three  weeks amounts to .'considerable.- The  Economist would like to do something  to putan end to this gambling amongst  women, but it looks as if the matter  sould be better attended to by the police. It is bad for men to gamble, but  it really does seem worse for women to  permit themselves to become slaves to  the mania.  . The Economist is authorized to  state that John Houston will not address the next meeting ofthe University Club on " Blakemoreism): Is it  Altruism or Egoism?"  All the heroes are not to be found in  the field of battle nor in novels. There  are deeds done* every day equally..as  heroic as those for which the Victoria  Cross is awarded and quite as worthy  of emulation as the bravest performance or the hero of modern fiction.  History records no braver deed than  that of the boy Joseph Jacquemin, who  last Sunday plunged into the waters to  save his little brother and in doing so  sacrificed his own life. All thought of  self was completely obliterated, his  only thought being to rescue his brother.

'  ,i3  The 1904 crop of American slang is  now in a llatering state of cultivation.  With a few hold-overs from the preceding year it presents an outlook of  much cheer to the members of the  Anti-Dictionary organization.  The present place of honor must  without question be given to the phrase  " That's the answer." Here is a suitable expression^the delivery of which  stamps the speaker as a wise gazabo of  tho first water. It is to be employed  thus, for example :  "I see Knocker has been roasting  Getlhere's new play, while everybody  else agrees the play's the goods."  '���Oh. Getthere turned down one of  Knocker's songs���that's the answer."  Or again :  Employer���Mr. Coraelate, you are behind time again this morning.  Mr. Comelate���Well, you see, sir���  Employer���I don't want any excuses.  Next time this happens you hit the  bricks for yours���that's the answer.  '���That's the answer" may be appropriately used in about twelve conversations out of every dozen, and is a distinct addition to the picturesque  phraseology of the workaday world.  " Up the pole" is the latest aricf smartest synonym for undeviating sobriety.  Time was when " on the water wagon"  was the accepted formula, but this is  no longer fashionable in knowing circles. In 1903 when a man bids farewell to the demon drink he goes " up  the pole."  " Out of luck" is a commendable expression, being used on the slightest  provocation. If a man has lost a million dollars iu Wall street he is "but of  luck." With equal appropriateness if | methods he is trying to "crab the act."  he fuils to get a seat on a street car 1 If a confidence gentleman is restrained  he is "out of luck."

Instead he has " cush" in his  " kick," or, if lie he strapped, he has  no "cush" in his " kick." The origin  of tho terms is shrouded in mystery.  A favorite term and one growing  daily in popularity is "crab," to be  used as a verb.

Thus, " if we don't make that 12.45  train we'll be out of luck." Further,  "If the boss hears about me going  against the wheal I'll be out of luck."  It's a fine expression. It rolls on the  tongue.  " Tin-canning" goes for the gateway.  So, in a report of a prize fight���which,  en passant, must never be written in  English-r-when one of the gentlemen  runs around the ring in an effort to escape the reach of the other gentleman  the smart reporter must chronicle,  "Frisk" is a new word which is at-{ "Theboilennaker 'tin-canned,' butthe  tabling wide popularity in certain circles.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.  It will cost less to produce fruit in  the Kootenays than any place el&e in  the world, that is any place that lays  claim to being a fruit-producing country. The reason for this is the land requires very little preparation for lhe  trees,aud irrigation will not be required,  thereby lessening the cost of production au*d rendering com petition with  our product almost out of the (juestion.  That this is the view taken of the  question generally is evidenced by the  number of small ranches that are being disposed of daily and the inquiries  that are being made from all quarters  ; as to the value of land suitable for fruitgrowing. Besides this we have a  market almost at our own doors for  every pound of fruit grown in the country. The Northwest is lupidly illlinji  up, and the climate there is uot adapted  to the production of any kind of fruit,  and our convenience to that market  practically gives us a monopoly of it.  But those interested in the development of this industry must hear in  mind one thing, and that is the greatest care must be taken in tbe prepar-  " ation of the fruit for the market. For  years the the California fruit growers  ~* labored under tbe disability of not being able to meet the competition of  Florida and other States iu the sale of  their fruit.     They had no regular sys-  - tern of packing their fruits, so that  when their product reached the Eastern  markets it was unfit for sale. After  years of experimenting with packing  the California'growers devised a system  of packing and shipping that placed  them on an even footing with their  Eastern competitors, and to-day by  means of refrigerator cars they can  land their product on the New York  market in as good shape as it is when  picked.    Before the fruit is shipped  - from California it is carefully inspected,  and having successfully passed this inspection is a guarantee of its satisfactory condition for "the market.    The  price is  rep u hi ted   by the   fruit  exchanges, and after many years of experimenting the production of fruit in  California has developed intoamoiiey-  makiug industry.   Of course these are  matters for far-off future consideration,  but it is not out of place to refer to  them at the present lime.   The interior  of British Columbia is going to become  the orchard of the world, as is the  Northwest the granary of the uuiverso  to-day.  It is now generally understood that  there will be no summer session ofthe  Provincial Government. The Mcliride  Government premised a summer session in the event of some one of the  many railway companies seeking privileges being able to show lhat they  meant business. Evidently these companies have not heen able to convince  the Government that they are in a position to go on with railway construction at once.

A lirst-class carriage  was secured, and although it was not  reserved, the tribunal was not disturbed  by any gossipy traveller dropping in  to take part in the conversation. Tlie  distance to Chester was cut into two  equal parts, and one. barrister spoke the  first seven miles, the other having the  remaining seven.  EAT  MERCHANTS  Head Office Nelson, B. C.

West Kootenay Butcher Co  Wholesale and Retail  Dealers In  JUD..  I'turi  London Advertiser, -  The consideration of sentiment is perhaps the most formidable that unionists  will have to face. The hearts and  minds of many are rilled with an intense pride in the history, the name  and peculiarities of their particular denomination. Many will be found especially in small towns and country  districts, who are saying to themselves,  " A Methodist was I born and a iMelh-  odist. will I die," or "A Presbyterian  was I born and a Presbyterian will I  die." The former believe honestly that  the average Presbyterian is a coldblooded Christian, who knows nothing  of the fervors of aftbclion and of faith  that are the rightful inheritance of a  true Methodist. On the other hand,  there will be found many Presbyterians  whose conviction is that the Methodist  religion exhausts itself in experience  meetings, and that when you want a  solid, well-founded character it will be  seen at its best among Presbyterians.  This sentiment of affection for tbe  methods and teaching of ones own denomination, though intangible, is a  force that must be reckoned with.  xGursion  Camps supplied on shortest  notice and lowest prices.

"Mount-Sir Donald, in the Canadian  Rockies, -which rises to the height of  10,700 feet, has Just 'been .conquered for  the first time hy the loot of woman.  Mrs. Berens, the successful climber, ls  a young: Englishwoman hailing- from  Kent. While at Glacier, on the Canadian Pacific Railway, on her honeymoon trip round the world, she heard  that very few men and no woman had  ever set foot on the summit of Sir Donald. So she resolved to make the ascent, and was all'the more anxious to  do so as she heard that a Philadelphia  lady had expressed her intention of  toeing the first up. Mrs. Berens successfully..- accomplished the . climb,  though she had several very .narrow  escapes.  The other day, when the jury In &  murder trial In the Louisville courts  HH-hadi-petireda-to=their-H.roomr^the-fwemanH=  said: "Gentlemen, this ls a serious case  ���we have' to decide. A man's life  may be "forfeited by our decision. How-  many Christians are among us?" Nina  men raised their hands. .."Will one of  you pray?" asked the foreman.- One of  the oldest jurors said, he would do his  best. All knelt, and a most earnest  and Impressive pi ayer was offered.  Balloting: was then begun. Several jurors were in favor of a life sentence,  and others for terms as short as eight  years. U'he jury finally agreed on  eighteen yea'rs.i ���*  John Dillon's outbreak in the House  of Commons the other day, when ha  called Joseph Chamberlain a "damned  liar," reminds one of the speech of Mr.  Martin, a member for Gal-way, in 17S9,  which absolutely defies reproduction.  He denounced ai, fellow-member in language of unprintable disgust, and  could not resist the temptation of applying his words also to the member's  sister, -who sat in the gallery of the  House of Commons at the time. "These  ���Ponsonby's,"   he  burst   out,   "are   the  curse of my country.   Tihey are ,  personally and politically, from that  toothless old hag who Is now grinning  in the gallery, to the white-livered  scoundrel who ls now shivering on-the  floor."  A most interesting light is thrown on  the approaches toward civilization  made by the people who dwelt in caverns in France during*,-the stone age by  the discovery of a great number of  drawings of animals on the walls of  an ancient cave at Combarelles, in  ���South-western Franc*. Many of the  drawing's, which, represent, wi th surprising skill, reindeer, mammoths and  other animals now extinct In Southern  and Western Europe, have become covered In the course; of time with thick  layers of stalagmite. Among the most  interesting pictures are some which  represent horselike animals belonging  to two different species, and some of  these animals have halters and other  attachments, plainly showing that they  had been subjected to the service of  ���man. .;     '      '���    ���     1  It was only a short time ago .that the  tabl�� telephone became an adjunct-of  Chicago restaurants where business  and professional men spend a few, ne-,  .y&ssary ;rooraen.ts away from the buag  ~.-i.alrs of the day. Now comes another development in the telephone service, which promises to become" a universal and indispensable feature of  railway trains. The Chi'oago and  North-western Railway recently  equipped a new train, known as the  "Overland Limited," for service between that city and the Pacific Coast.  Amongst lis features Is a telephone,  installed In the observation car, from  which con.ncet.ion can be made with  any telephone system along the route.  A special wire of the looal telephone  company is dropped- over the roof of  the car and run through an opening to  the instrument in the car, -and by  means of a "monkey," or wall jacket,  connection is made. The passenger desiring to ��� telephone to any part of the  city or communicate with a long-distance point is thus enabled to do so,  without leaving the cars, while the  train stops at a. station.  Whili preach*r-s.T from the text: "Ha  giveth iii a beli.veo sleep," a minister  stopped in the middle of his sermon^  gv.zed upon his dozing auditors, and  said: "Brethren, It is hard to realize  the wondrous unbounded love the Lord  ���appears'tij,have for a good portion of  ���this congregation." .     o  ' The "Green Bag" tells of a lawyer  who was about to furnish a bill of  costs. "I hope," said his client, who  was a baker, "that you will make It as  light as possible." "Ah," said the lawyer, "you might perhaps say that to  the foreman of your establishment, but  that is not the way I make my bread!"  Lost the Case,  " Sometimes," said a prominent  lawyer, who was giving some reminiscences of his 'professional career, "a case Is won or lost for you  right in the count-room without your  lifting your angeir��� or : rather, your  voice.  "I .was once counsel for the plaintiff  In a suit for Infringement of trademark. My client made a brand of  chewing-gum put up in a blue_ wrapper. This wrapper had been "widely  advertised, and was a good thing to  catch*the eye in a candy counter. The  defendant had got up a pretty close  imitation; at a distance it looked the  same*,- although the words were different, and nothing was. copied except  the general appearance, which is, for  advertising purposes, half the value of  a distinctive label. ���.,  "The opposing counsel made out.a  pretty good case, showing that -In  ���wording, the shape of the letters, and  other points, ahis client'-s wrapper was  different from the plaintiff's.  " 'Why,' he said, picking up one  wrapper and showing it to the-jury,  ���would anyone mistake this wrapper  for that of the plaintiff? See,' he continued, reaching down for the other,  'they are entirely different/  "I told him to hold the two Just as 'aa  had them. He paused at my Interruption, wondering what I was up to. Hia  wonder changed to confusion when he  found that he had .mistaken them  thimirelf, and picked ��p my client's  .���wrapper first. It took iyio ward* ixom  SM io-win. the case."       .""*"  E  THE   CELEBRATED  BRIAR   PIPES.  to  Ui  a.  <  1  if)  O  z  <  UJ  Ul  X  u.  O  Ul  O  W.
